Ex-PoIiGeman Barry the Victim of
Delirium Tremens.
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.

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.

SCUTTLEDANOTHEB SCOW
Naval Hostilities at Alexandria
Are at Their Hottest.
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."

ings formally announced to-night to a
reporter for the Associated Press that he
would be a candidate for delegate from
Center county to the next Republican State
convention, and that te would alto stand
for the permauent chairmanship of that
body.
This announcement followed a confer
ence between the Governor, Attorney Gen
eral McConnlck and Senator Quay. What
passed between them none would disclose,
except that the Governor told the Beaver
Senator that he favored Mr. Gilkeson's
candidacy for re-election.
Senator Quay is confined to his room at
the Lochiel Hotel with a badly swo.Ien
foot, the result or an accident while he was
fishing at Brigantine last week. When
Gov. Hastings learned or the Senator's
condition, he tent .a note to Inm stating
that he had expected the Senator to call

room, he would call upon air. Quay instead.

Cormick called on Senator Quay to-night.
After the conference the Senator said to
the Associated Press reporter that he
thought Gov. Hastings would beibosenper
manent chairman or the State convention
without objection, but there would be a
fight for State chairman.
Gov. Hastings said that the fight against
Chairman Gilkeson is war in disguise
against his administration for its stand
during the recent legislation for a new
