I2tll & F Sts, EssF,Ws' IBED TIE PABSi Rev. S. H. Greene's Brother-in-Law filet Them Face to Face. REVOLVER HELD TO HIS HEAD The Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church and His Family Were at Divine Eervics Wbea the Attempt Wai Hade Their Work Was Done Boldly and Expedi tiously Hissed a Large Sum of Honey. Another Sanday evening robbery was committed last night, two unknown white men entering tbe bouse of Rev. S. H. Greonc, No. 1322 Q street northwesti while tbe family was at church, and nltliough the plunder dW not exceed ?5, tbe boldness of tbe attempt places it on a par witb any recently made. As in tbe case of Rev. Dr. Butler a few weeks ago, Dr. Greene and tbe entire family werea t church and tbe servant away. The robbers, after trying vainly to get in through the front window, forced open the baseaent door, and proceeded to make a systematic search of tbe premises. Mr. J. M. Buzzfll, Dr. Greene's brother-in-law, returned borne before the rest of tbe party, and upon entering tbe bouse beard some one moving around on the sec ond floor, bat supposing that it was Dr. Greene's eon and a friend, paid no attention to tbe noise. SAW THEY WERE STRANGERS. He moved around down stairs for a few minutes, when he beard some one coming down tbe steps, and turning to look saw that they were strangers. He started towards them to ask them what tbey -wauted, but the men bad reached tbe first floor, and one of them drawing a revolver covered Mr. Buzzill witb it, backing slowly out of tbe front door, while tbe otlier one ran down tbe steps and out into the street. As soon as the one with the revolver got outside both men took to their heels, running down Kingman place, which opens on Q street a few doorb from Mr. Greene's residence. Mr. Buzzill's cries for the police soon drew a large crowd, and several started in pursuit, but the men had too much of a start, and soon disappeared. A couple of policemen from tbe Eighth precinct came np a few minutes after the men got away, and upon investigating the affair, arrived at tbe conclusion that they were the same men wlio robbed Dr. Butler's residence several Sundays ago. MISSED A LARGE SUM. Mr. Buzzfll said that the men wore white and were rathor young looking, loth about medium h eighth. He could give no better description of thorn and does not think he could identify them, as the affair took place in so short a time. Dr. Greene says that there hapiiencd to be a large sum of monoy ami n quantity of valuables in the bouse, which, fortunately, tbe ttivQS did not get track of. They had, evidently, been iu the house only a short tnue when Mr. BuzzHl returned, as tbey bad ransacked only tbe Eeoottd floor.

A dispatch to tbe Times from Odessa says that there were Bevere earthquakes Friday at Tashkend, Asiatic Russia. They Tried To Exchange Places in the Eoat, but the Youne lady lost Her 'Balance, and, Catching Hold of Her Escort, Both Fell Overboard Drowned Before Help Could Beach Them One Body Becovered. Irving Lysle and Miss Katie Canter, both well-known and popular residents of Ana costla, fell out or a row boat and were drowned a few hundred yards from the garbage wharf at the foot of South Capitol street yesterday afternoon about three o'clock. .

They sang at the church services yesterday morning, and early in the af tenioon Jiired a small row boat at rrench'B wharf, at the foot of Eleventh street southea&t, and started out for a row. They passed beneath the Anacostla bridge, and oil down the Eastern Branch by tbe Navy Yard, and were rowing around iu the channel, off the foot of South Cap itol street. According to the story of James Martin, an Anaootlia boy who witnessed the acci oeut, Lysle was sitting in the bow of the boat and Miss Canter in the stern. Both got up and started townrde each other, evidently lnteudiiig to change places, when tlie young lady lost her bal ance, and, catching bold of Lysle, both plunged averboaru. SHE SEIZED LYSLE. They west down together, but while under the water, became separated, and oh reaching the surface Mlts Cunter again eUed Lysle around the waist.

The boat wah rec-ov-red by a young man named Lew Be.vb, tmd contained the young lady'ahat and parasol. The police boat Joe Blackburn was tele phoned for, but was in Georgetown, and it was tome lime before it reached the scene of the disaster. Preparations Ti-ere immediately made for dragging the river for the bodies, however, and fibout G:S0 o'clock the small boat in command of Pilot Russell Dean found the body of the young lady about 100 yards out in the stream off One-half street. HER BODY RECOVERED. It was carried to the harbor-master's wharf, and the police ambulance from the Second precinct wab tent for. The body was then removed to Miss Canter's late home in Anacostia. All efforts to locate Lysle's body last night were unsuccessful. H.irbor-inaster Sutton, however, will resume work early this morning. Lysle had no regular occupation in Ana costla, and lived witb his mother, Mrs. Perkins, on Monroe street. Miss Canter was eighteen years old, and kept house for her father, Mr. George T. Canter, at No. 228 Fillmore street, and bad just recovered from a protracted sick spelL .Although not engaged, the two young people have beenon friendly terms forseveral years.

San Francisco, Cal., April 31. The po lice are still busy in picking up the threads and weaving their networkof circumstances and evidence in the Emanuel Baptist Church cases, so as to leave no weak mesh tnrougb which the accused can escapr- for they believe they have tho niu;rdererin the person of "W. H. E. Durant. ? It is now thought ty will avikc on endeavor to try Durant cst on the charge of murdering Miss Lampnt, as tho evid-jnee in that ca6e Is said tojbe much suonger against the prisoner than In tbe case of the killing of Miss "Williams. Referring to tho runior that Biarhe Lamont was lured to the lihurch by D it rant's promise to perionn a opjninal operation on her to save hor from ilsgracc aud that when she shrieked in afcbuy he caught her by the (hroat to btifle her cnes and choked her to death, Dr. BarTett, the city autopsy physician, stated the ?umor was without foundation. He says he took especial care In the matter of the autopsyr and ho is satisfied that no criminal operation was performed. He also states that both young women died of strangulation and that the knife wounds in Miss Williams' bodiverc not tho cause of death. Among the gruesome exhibits in the case is one thafc was quietly taken to polleo headquarters and locked up, and not until a late hour last night did the police ac knowledge they had it. This exhibit is a shoe and on its sol6 arc dark spots of blood that came from the body of Miss "SVilliams. Tho shoe is the property of Rev. J. George Gibson, pastor of tile church, and it waa found in bis study In the edifice last Sun day just after the finding or the body of Miss Lamont. This statement has created a sensation and gives those who have been hinting that Rev. Gibson may be the guilty party an opportunity -to emphasize their sus picions. -' However, the police do not seem, to see In it anything that implicates the pastor, for they argue that tho person who Mlled the two girls was familiar with thpehureb, must have known the Bhoes wore there, iiul must have worn theui in hl&bloody undertaking.

BLEEDING IN A HALLWAY Post-mortem Examination Disclosed the Shocking Fact that the Poor Creature Had Been Inhumanly Beaten and Stamped Upon and Internally Mutilated Hemorrhase Waa the Cause of Her Beath. -"New York, April 21. A murder was brought to light in Bellevue Hospital this a f tenioon, which is suggestive in some of its details or the White Chapel crimes in London, that made "Jack, the Ripper" notorious. The victim is a woman of the lowest class. Her name was Alice Walsh and she was welL known in the resorts in the neighborhoodofBIeecker and Thompson streets. When the autopsy was performed upon her body, it was discovered that certain mutilations had been made which dis tinguished the White Chapel murders, although not of so serious a character. Up to a late hour the murderer had not been arrested, but one man who is thought to bave some kuowledge of the matter was held ou suspicion. The circumstances of the killing of Alice Walsh are peculiar in almost every aspect. About 5 o'clock this morning a woman was found in the hallway of No. 1-13 Thompson 6treet half unconscious and bleeding. The woman was conveyed to St. Vin cent's Hospital and inquiries instituted at the tenement. No one who was there knew the name of the woman, butthe night clerk ot a restaurant readily identified ber as Alice Walsh. NEVER REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS. Every effort of the physicians to stop the blood proved futile, and the patient expired at 11:15 o'clock, having been in tho institution less than four hours. During that period she showed no signs of returning consciousness, and diqd without indicating in any way how she met with the circum stances which resulted In her death. In the course of the afternoon Dr. Phillip O. llanlon, coroner's physician, made a tiosjt-mortem examination of the body and discovered the real cause of death. He found that the woman was bruised and black and blue iu almost every part of her body. He found also that she had been bru tnlly mutilated with a knife or dagger, and thnt the wounds thus resulting had started the hemorrhage which bad terminated fatally. After much searching about the neigh borhood the police found that the woman, iu company with a tall, broad-shouldered man, who looked like an Italian, a wo man, known as "Girnpy" Amanda, a girl called "Teenic," and another man, had spent a portion of the early morning hours in the-saloon of E. N. uarland, at 108 West Houston trt. hue there she I pecame greatly intoxicated, and she and I line foil nftmvinittswi mtnVMillud her tall companion quarrelled. They loft there, so far as could bo ascer tained, at about 4 o'clock, a. m. Whoro they went during tho Intervening two hours cannot uow be told. It is surmised that the man who killed hor is tho Italian strangor in whoso com pany sho was in Garlavd's saloon. A womau iu Bellevue Hospital, who had met her whilo serving a term on the island, said that she had been living with a man named Terence Collins, who, a short time ago, was sent to the Elmira Reformatory. After hor lover had been sent away, Alico took up with an Italian, or a Spaniard, so the woman said. Philip Mewloy, tho night clerk, is being held until further investigation is made. 1 Mystery of tho Suicide TJnsolvrrt. Nothing has yet been heard of by tho authorities in regard to the identity of the mysterious Amnrtoan House suicide. The nuniVer of visitors at Lee's undertaking es tablishment, on Pennsylvania avenue, between Third and Four-and-a-half streets, yesterday was much smaller than ou Sat urday, and none of them was able to fur nish any information about him. If the body is not identified by to-morrow it will probably be buried in potter's field. The Sea Gives TTp Its Dead. Westerly, R. I., April 21.
