HIS DEATH CHAMBER A CELL Raved and Shrieked Until the Statton Iceeper Sent forn Physician When Dr. Nevltt Arrived the Unfortunate .Mutt Had Expired Inquest Deemed Unnecessary by the Coroner. Edmund J. Barry, an ex-member of the Metropolitan police force, and until re cently employed as a grocery clerk by Mrs. McAllioter, at Sixth street and Maryland avenue northeast, died at the Ninth pre cinct station-house early yesterday morn ing. Extreme alcoholism was the cause. Ak death took place before medical at tendance reached liim the body was removed to the morgue and later viewed by Deputy Coroner Glazcbrook, who decided that no inquest would be necessary, and gave a certificate or death. A brother or the dead man. who resides in Jersey City, was cotified, and the body removed to Lee's undertaking establishment. Barry was arr est edbyPolieemauArcbam bault. of the Ninth precinct, about 11 o'clock Saturday night, upon complaint of a citizen, and was locked up at the station-house upon the tmiple charge or intoxication. When he was taken into the btatiou-house he "was very much ex cited,. nnd evidently buffering from delirium tremens. FOUGHT IX HIS FRENZY. "When he -was placed in the cell he kept up a continual talking to himself for a while, but finally quieted and lay down on the cell bench. .Mr. W. H. Burkhart, the station-keeper, upon hearing that the noise had ceased, went back and spoke to Barry, Baying that he was glad to tee him try to Bleep. Barry made no response other than turning bishead aside, and Mr. Burkhart returned to the office. A bout 3 o'clock, "when tliemcnonthcbeats begau to turn in from the patrol boxes, Barry became noisy again, but for fifteen minutes the fctatiou keeper was too busy taking calls to attend to him. Wncn he did go back he foundBarryvIoleutly fighting tJieereaturesofhibdelirium,nndafiertrying in vain to quiet him or attract hisattention, he went out iu I'rontof theetatioiihouseaud tent Policeman Hebrew to the office of Dr. JohuX. Cole, at No. 907 H street north east. Br. Cole.it seems, was not made tounder itaud the serious nature of the case, and thinking it wasa easeof simple alcoholism he refused to go. He told Hebrew what the remedy was for such cases and suggested that the station keeper administer it from the medicine chest at the station house, or else send for the police surgeon. DIED FROM EXHAUSTION. The policeman returned with the mes sage, and Mr. Burkhart Immediately tel ephoned for Br. Nevitt, who promptly re sponded, but by the time he leached the station-house Barry was dead. He had ex hausted himsuir fighting phantoms, and for several minutes before death ensued he lay on the floor of the cell, gasping for breath and struggling convulsively, evi dently suffering most intense agony. Considerable discussion was excited by Dr. Cole's action in declining to visit the Btation-house to lelieve the sufferer, but ho staled last night that under the im pression that it was not a serious ease be considered it out of his jurisdiction, iul in refusing to go simply complied with the instructions or the health detainment. He said that the policeman stated .to him that a mail had been taken to Hie station house drunk and was creating considera ble disturbance. When asked iT the man had had any con TUlsions the policeman a-plted in the nega tive, and Dr. Cole told him to tellthe station keeper to administer a dose of bromide of potassium, which he would find in the medicine rhest at the station-house. Dr. Gln.ebrook, the deputy coroner, said last night that the body showed s-o unmis takably that death was the result of ex treme alcoholism that no autopsy or inquest was necessary, and he gave a cer tificate accordingly. Killed by n IAve Wire. Charleston, S. C, June 24. John Enrighf, night engineer of the Charleston Electric Light and Tower Company, was killed to-day by contact with a live wire. mmm . daish Second Street and Florida Avenue N, E. STRUCK BY A HEAVY SWELL One of the Colima's Passengers Gives His Version of the Wreck. Sho Sank in Ten Minutes in Hundred and Fifty Fathoms of "Water Sur vivors; Very Kindly Treated. An account of the wreck of the Colima has reached the State Department from United Stated Consul Eugene Battle, at Acapulco, Mexico, dated June 8. He transmits the statement of Mr. Chilberg, corroborated by three other passeugers and two seamen, saying the wind and heavy sea was the cause of the wreck, and prob ably a leak in the vessel. Twenty-one per sons were picked up by the San Juan, and ten who went ashore on lire rafts were taken care or by the governor or Colima. Two Mexican steamers rendered prompt sen-ice. One hundred and sixty-five persons were lost and thirty-one were saved, and the consul believes that but little more of the missing will ever be known. Mr. Chilberg, or Seattle, says that the Colima, put ting out rrotn Mnnzanillo at 5 o'clock on May 26, experienced heavy weather, making only about eight knotB alt night and lalxiring heavily. About forty miles from port and ten or fifteen miles from shore there came a terrible wind. No one could stay on deck. He thinks the officers were trying to put the ship about to return to port when she was struck by a heavy swell at a critical time, with such force that she capsized and suuk in ten minutes in 150 fathoms of water. Chilberg was washed overboard, caught a life raft with four others and got a'shore after being in the water thirty-three hours. He thinks the steamer sprang a leak, as she listed more and more before the accident and nevor seemed to recover herself iu the least. One of the rafts had eight men on it, but the sea was so rough that the raft made three complete revolutions, losing a man every time, leaving five who made shore. The people ashore received them with the greatest kindness, giving them food, water and the best accommodations their humble adobe homes could provide. A t Colima tJi Governor provided them with food and clothing and gave them transportation to ManzauMo. Consul Battle suggests that the State Department recognize in some way the good offices tendered by Governor Santa Cruz iu behalf or distressed American citizens. OHIOANS QUESTION SATOLLT. Cleveland Catholics "Want Official J 11 rornnit ion About Secret Societies. Cleveland, June 114. The Universe, the" official organ of Bishop Horstmann, of the Catholic dfocese of Cleveland, is out with the statement that there has been received from Home a reiteration of the pope's request that all members of the church withdraw from secret societies, notably the Odd Fellows and the Knights of Pythias. Ex-Congressman Foran.oneortheleading attorneys of this city, and oher prominent Catholics of this city who are members of secret societies, consulted and decided to write to MonsiguorSatolliandask whether the pope's declaration-would be enforced as an edict. Mr. Foran, who is one of the leading members or the Elks and a Knight of Pythias, declared in an interview to-day that while he was a good Catholic his secret society connections were a matter or conscience and that he would not give way to any authority in that point.

THE POTOMAC IS BLOCKADED Health Officers) Attacked the Gar bage Vessel as She Itoeked Lnzlly and Odorously in the Diver Oppo site the City Citizens Indorse the Mayor and WilMVage War. The naval battle at Alexandria between the Washington garbage contractors and the health authorities of the ancient Vir ginia city is now at its height. Another engagement took place yesterday afternoon between the contending forces, with the result that another garbage scow went down, like McGinty, to the bottom of the Potomac. All onboard were lost as the gallant bark was scuttled by piratical boarders from the attacking fleet. It is said that the Alexandrians talk or erecting a fort op posite Giesboro Point and will draft into the service of the State the law-unabiding citizens or Jackson city and Roslyn. The river approach from Washington is heavily guarded and further attempts to run the blockade win be watched by large multitudes on the heights or the Virginia and Maryland hills. WENT DOWN AT NIGHT. The Washington garbage contractors took down the latest scow to meet a watery grave from Washington 011 Saturday night last, and anchored it in the river off Alexandria. No effort was made to move it Sunday or yesterday, and there it lay rolling in the sun spreading its retid odors around. Yesterday afternoon, acting under the in structions or Dr. Julian Miller, the health officer, Mr. William B. Dobie, went out to I the scow, and knocking a" hole through her bottom, allowed hor to sink. He made a better job of tills one than he did or the one last week, for 6he sank in water deep enough to hide her from sight. From the end ot the pier in this city yesterday evening the scow scuttled last week could be plainly seen half sunken in the mud, but, the one attacked yesterday morning had disappeared completely rrom sight. Au agent of the Washington Garbage Company was in Alexandria yesterday even ing, anfl employed .Mr. Joseph It. Caton to enter suit against the city for damages caused by the destruction of the barges. It is also said that they propose to try to take those who sank the barges to Washington Tor a criminal prosecution, as the barges were lying within the wutersof the District of Columbia when sunk. The people ot Alexandria are a unit in the determination not to have the public health jeopardized by these scow loads of disease breeding filth anchored in front of the city. The mayor told a Times reporter yester day evening that every scow anchored off this city during the rew remaining days of histerm would certainly be either burned or sunk and Mayor Beckham, when he returns from Europe, will doubtless take the same stand. A long petition, signed by over 200 of Alexandria's representative citizens, pray ing that tne mayor would put a stop to this great nuisance and endorsing him in what he has already done, waspresentedto Mr. Strauss yesterday. Every man in the Classic City denounces the action of the garbage company as an outrage. Protest after protest was sent to the Commissioners last summer, but nothing was done and this summer the health authorities, backed by the entire community, have determined to take thebull by the horns, and will stop thenuisatice. The Washington authorities will have much trouble in taking Supr. of Police Dobie to Washington for trial for destroy ing the barges should such a step be at tempted. The Alexandria people say the evil has got to stop if they have to fill the river with sunken garbage scows. Lightning's Fatal Freaks. Savannah, Ga., June 24. A house in Cuyler Swamp, near this city, in which some negro blackberry pickers had taken refuge, was struck by lightning this after noon. Maria Johnson was killed, an infant was fatally injured, and Jane Bell was terribly burned. Finished Bead Last with Their Boat Hall Full of "Water Cornell Fought Doggedly lint Could Not Stand tlio J.'uee Tug Wont to the Hescue of Pennsylvania. - Poughkeepsie, N-Y., June 24. The four mile stretch of Hudson river water opposite PoughkeepBic has been christened as an intercollegiate course by the contest which was won to-uigh't by. Columbia's eight over those oT Cornell and Pennsyl vania. Cornell wea beaten by about six boat lengths, and while the victory was being won, Pennsylvania's men, cramped within three-quarters or a mile of therinish, were Bitting in their shell, waist-deep in the water, waiting to be rescued by an approaching tug. Three distinctive forms of applying strength to the sweeps or the shell were ob served during this contest. Cornell, In her work, was sharp, orl6p, rapid in move ment; Columbia had the broad reach, thorough finish, with beer at the start of the stroke and suapplng power tit the finish. Pennsylvania rowed the heavy, laborious stroke or the early times of aquatic contest, gained slightly at the send-oif , held her own well on toward the second mile and then lust until the finish. PRIVATE GRAFT SCARCE. There was little or craft afloat to-day, as compared with last Friday. The Grand Republic came up with her decks swarm ing, and two or three other excursion boats were there. Only one steam yacht graced the course. Cornell was ready to embark, and up the river, Columbia only needed the sight ot the other crews to go to the start ing point. At 4:40 a launch with Cornell's men aboard started 011 tv towing thu shell up the river, and at 4:50 they were joined on tho way to the start by the Pennsyl vania crew, towing their shell, and not a public boat was moving on the course. It was 5:05 when the observation train made its move toward the; starting line, and at this time black thunjler clouds had thickened in the northwest, .and were also sweeping upward from' the southeast. CAME TO THE SCRATCH. At 5:45 Cornell came upon the starting line, and Columbia, in her shell, five min utes later rowed out from the wooded cove wliere her boathouse is and pulled a thirty six stroke up to the 6lartirig line. At G o'clock Cornell emliarked In her shell from the launch that had towed it up and, while doing so, the Pennsylvania men, in their shell, appeared around the point of Krumel bow. Referee Robert P. Perkins lined the men up and at 0.5:1 a sharp voice rang out over the watei "Gentlemen,- are you ready?' Tweiity-I'ourbacksiuth'ethreeshellswere bent and walling to catch tuvwatcr at the send-ofr. Each crew wore sleevelesi shirts andeachlittleco'xBwaiiihadbouudabouihis temples the colors or his crew, "Go!" shot forth the cotnmund from the referee. A yell went up rrom the crowd on the hillsides and from the moving observa tion train, whose wheels began rumbling as the crews tiegan theirfour-mile struggle. Cornell was first to touch oar-blades to the water, but uot the first to show in front. Pennsylvania, starting with a stroke or thirty-eight, pushed her light shell to the rront, while for a rev.- min utes Columbia, rowing thirty-eight strokes to the minute and Cornell forty-two, were on even terms. Pennsylvania's lead, however, was very short lived, and almost before the spec tator could observe that Pennsylvania had an advantage Columbia, with their strong, steady beef-at-both-ends-of-the-stroke movements, crept and crept, showing her nose more and more, while Cornell had pulled even with Pennsylvania and there stuck on even terms. At the hair mile Columbia was leading Cornell by half a length,' while Pennsyl vania was third, and Cornell rrom 42 at the start had run her stroke up to 45, dropping it in the last halt r the Hrst mile to 44. The rirst mile was finished by the leaders in five minutes at C:58 o'clock. KNICKERBOCKERS IN FRONT. The New Yorkers were creeping the first half of the second mile more and more ahead of Cornell, and at one and a quarter miles tho little flu-like rudder of Columbia's shell slipped out and away from Cornell's boat, leaving at hist a strip )f clean, open space between the two. Meantime Pennsylvania was doggedly slogging through the spray at .16 Vo tho minute. At the one and a hair mile point there was a clear length or water between Columbia and Cornell, while- Cornell was increasing the lead over Pennsylvania, until at two miles the Quakers were two lengths behind Cornell, who in turn were two lengths behind Columbia. It wasa ca&e ot rerocioits physical action against the measured movements ot'greater physical power. The second mile was fin ished by the leaders in six minutes at 7:04 o'clock. Opening the third mile, Cornell, appreciating the desperatiou of her situ ation, made one or the most remarkable efforts made in many fycars in a racing shell. Splashing through the rough seas, the Ithaca men raced their stroke up to fifty-two strokes per minute. PENNSYLVANIA DONE FOR. The third mile marked orilj the added gain or Columbia and the increasing dis advantage or Pennsylvania. Indeed, Co lumbia and Pennsylvania-seemed pulling apart, with Cornell stnuding in the center. The third mile was accomplished at 7:09 o'clock, in five minuteB, twelve seconds. Columbia shot over the three-mile line and through the piers of the great bridge, steadily and entirely withinjlier powers with the inevitable thirty-eight to the minute trailing behind her. ComolTshot under the bridge firteen seconds latoV, and Pennsyl vania, now moving groggify because of the water aboard, came last and toiled on one-fourth of the last mile Svhen it became evident that, she could notrinish the raceand almost while that convictio'n came to those whosaw-.therereree'stugplohghingonafter the leaders passed the Quakers and gave them a wash that filled what little empty space that remained In their shell, and the plucky fellows-sank- slowly into the river. Before a police tug could reach them, still sitting in their shell .'but rowing no longer, they were waist deep in the water, and still settling. Thqy were lirted out by ready bauds 'and carried to their boat house, tho w.ater-logged shell being towed thither. Meantime Columbia, to show how strong she was after the last half of the fourth mile was begun, "ran her stroke up to 40 strokes to the miuute, while Cornell , though hopelessly beaten, pounded in the stroke again up to 50 permihuto. The race was rinished, however, all save crossing the lino, and thi$ Columbia did at 7:14:20 o'clock, covering the last mile in five minutes eight seconds, and the fourmiles in 21:20 seconds. This is one minute and ten seconds slower than a record said to have been made at New London, on the Thames, when that river avjis swollen witha freshet. Chicago, June 24. The will of Gen. Walter Q. Gresham, late Secretary of State, was admitted to probate to-day by Judge Kohlsaat. Mrs.. Gresham appeared iu court, accom panied by her son, Otto Gresham. Judge Henry W. Blodgett and George W. Kemp, or the United States Circuit Court, the witnesses to the will, were also present. Mr. Gresham produced his father's will and formal proof ot the witnessing of tho will was then made. The will is very simple. It is written in Judge Gresham's own handweiting, upon one sheet of paper, and dated he comber 18, 1888. It is as follows: "I Walter Q. Greshum, do hereby make this, my last will aud testameut. "I give, devise and bequeath to my wife, Matilda Gresham, all my estate, property aud effects, real aud personal, and of every kind and description, and whereso ever situate, to have and hold absolutely. I appoint my said wife sole executrix of this will. "Witness my hand the eighteenth day of December, 1888." The schedule of property owned by Gen. Gresham shows that he was worth $51, 000 at the time or his death. Of this $-10,000 is in real property, ami the balance in personal effects. The other heirs are Otto Gresham, klie sou, and Kate Gresham Andrews, his daughter. CANT'T HE TRIED HERE. llofiisal of n Writ of Removal In the Duna-Noyes Case. New York, June 24. Judge Brown, of the United Stales circuit court, denied the application for a writ or removal in the case of Charles A. Dana, indicted by the grand jury or the District or Columbia for an alleged criminal libel against F. B. Noyes, oT the Washington Star. Judge Brown did not pass upon the question as to whether the defendant did or did not libel Mr. Noyes, nor did he con sider the validity of the indictment found by the Washington court. The refosal of the writ of removal is based upon the tech nical grounds, as stated by the Judge: "First, because of the insufficiency of this indictment as a basis for removal pro ceedings under the practice required by section 1014, nnd, second, because the orrense charged, resting wholly on the common law or Maryland, continued In force there by the acts or Congress, does not lielong to the class ot 'offenses against the United States contemplated by sec tion 33 of the Judiciary Act or by section 1014 of the Revised Statutes, upon which this application is based."
