A Bloody Tragedy in a
Seventh Street Tene
Morris O'Brien Cuts an Artery in
/ Timothy's Arm, and Timothy
Bleeds to Death.
Timothy O'Brien, a laborer, of New
Durham, died at the City Hospital about
mlduight last night from the effects of a
wound received at the hands of his
brother Morris during a quarrel.
4 bout nine o'clock last evening
Τ .ndsman Flannelly was walking up
.-■eventh street when he saw a crowd
rushing toward No. 154. He hurried
there and was informed that a man on
the second floor had been cut by another
He went up to the floor designated and
there he saw Morris O'Brien with a
bloody knife in his hand. He caught the
man by the arm and took the weapon
from him.
He then saw Timothy sitting near by
with a towel wouad tightly around his
The blood was soaking through the
towel, and it looked as though the man
» was dangerously hurt.
He asked Morris what the trouble was,
was his own fault.
Morris was placed under arrest, and Dr.
Hoffman was summoned to attend to the
Injured man. The physician found that
Timothy had been cut in the wrist.
The wound looked as though a knife
with ii sharp point and keen edge had
been thrust into the wrist to the bone and
then twisted around.
An artery had been severed and the
blood was gushing forth in spurts.
Dr. Hoffman saw that the wound was
in all probability fatal, and ordered an
ambulance to convey the wounded man
to the City Hospital.
In the meantime he tried to staunch
the flow of blood as best lie could. When
the ambulance arrived Timothy was very
weak from loss of blood and died shortly
after his arrival at the hospital.
The police immediately made an inves
tigation, and arrested Mary O'Brien,
Morris's wife, and Annie Scott, of No. 152
Sixth street, who, they were told, had
witnessed the affray. Morris appeared to
be under the influence of liquor when ar
rested, but maintained a strict silence
about the affray.
When he learned that his brother was
dead he made a brief statement.
He said that some time ago his mother
died, leaving his brother Timothy a small
picce of property in New Durham. The
two brothers frequently quarrelled over
this, which Morris maintained was un
Yesterday afternoon Timothy came to
his house and they began drinking. They
continued the quarrel, and last evening
they got to fighting.
Timothy, he claims, attacked Mm and I
he picked up the knife to defead himself.
This morning Morris was arraigned be
fore Justice Stilsing on a charge of mur
der. Policeman Flanneliy testified to the
Mrs. O'Brien declared that she knew
nothing of the affair and was not called
uiiuii it; lesbiLy.
Mis. Scott also offered an alibi. The
policeman said that when taken Into eus- ;
tody as a wituess ehe lind one of Mrs.
O'Brien's shoes in her possession.
Mrs. Scott explained that she was run
ning to the house with the crowd when
she saw Mrs. O'Brien rushing down the
street halt' scared to death with one shoe
on and the other in her hand.
She told Mrs. Scott that there was a I
row at her home and in her excitement
gave Mrs. Scott the shoe.
O'Brien, who is an elderly man with a
vicious eye, was dressed as a laborer and
appeared to be recovering from a pro
longed debauch.
He seemed in a daze, and refused to say
anything. He was committed to wait the I
action of the Grand Jury, ana the women
were set at liberty.
When I first reached the house in I
which the O'Briens lived I met Mrs.
O'Brien with a number of sympathizing
women in the lower hallway. She re
fused absolutely to talk about the mur
der and the causes leading to the crime.
She was too excited to talk, even had she
been inclined to. All tlib Information she j
imparted could be summed up in these
Both the men were drinking. My hus
band's brother came over from New
York intoxicated about five o'clock.
They had quarrelled frequently. I was
afraid they would light, so 1 got out and
did not return till late in the evening,
after it was all over. 1 don't know who
ftdve the alarm. When I came home the
officers were carrying my husband away.
I didn't think when I left them it would
turn out this way.
"Were they quarrelling about the New
Durham property)"' I asked.
"Don't ask me. I can't tell you any
thing more. Please let me alone with
nwl) fftwHnffS."
In the next house I enquired for Mrs.
Smith, who lives ou the tirst floor. A
medium sized, stout woman, with a full
round face, full of cuts and bruises,
Eeeped from behind a door, which she
eld partly ajar.
"Did you see or hear anything of the
row next door, Mrs. Smith?"
"Faith, I had my own troubles to look
Β after," answered the woman with an air
of resignation. Sure, an' my husband
was biting the life out of me when the
fight was going on next door. Look at
that face."
ÎNone of the neighbors seemed to know
anything about the affair beyond the ar
rest of the murderer, who was found in
the room where he committed his crime.
None of them saw the arrest made.
Ascending the three flights of steps
leading to the apartments occupied by the
O'Briens, through darkened hallways,
fouled with the odor of dampness and
sprinkled with sawdust, I reached the
open door of the room in which the mur
der was committed. The scene was that
§, of η slaughter house, barring the rude
furniture and small decorations. The
floor, partially covered with oilcloth, was
besmeared from one eun to the other with
clotted blood. The centre of the pool
looked as though some one had wallowed
Mrs. O'Brien, the middle-acred wife of
the homicide, was wildly pacing to and
fro, with her skirts lifted to prevent them
trailing through the dark crimson fluid,
moaning and repeatedly murmuring:—
"He was such a good man; he never
raised his arm to hurt any one before;
mv God, it must be a c.ream!"
Over one of the doorways hung the
framed prayer, "God Bless Our Home,"
and over another, "God Bless Papa."
A stove, a table and a black sofa were
the main articles of furniture in this
room, but a small bedroom, with a bright
red carpet and a brand new yellow bureau
in the vista, formed a strange contrast to
the horrible appearance of the kitchen
and sitting room, Δ cane-seated rocking
chair blocked the doorway of this room.
In iront of it was another pool of blood, '
and in the darkened hallway outside still
another pool was observed. That so J
much blood flowed from one cut it is al
most impossible to believe.
The hospital authorities say that the J
ambulance was called at fifteen minute»
after nine and responded without delay.
O'Bilen was then unconscious and dying.
He did not revive from his comatose
condition and expired half an hour
after midnight. His body was removed
to H peer's Morgue. County Physician
Converse was notified, and called at the
Morgue this morning. He viewed
the body and gave instructions
that the remains be held. He will prob
ably make the post mortem examination
tomorrow. The Coroner's jury will view
the remains on Monday.
"He will carry Hudson county by at least
12,000 majority, and Ills majority throughout the
State will be from 18,000 to !»,000, no matter
whom the Republican party may nominate. —
John Edelstein in The Sunday Morjîino News.

Λ Moran'g Housemaid Suffocated bv
Illuminating Gas.
Mary Downs, a domestic In the family
of Francis Moran, at Green and Mont
gomery streets, was found dead in her bed
this morning. She retired to bed appar
ently in good spirits, but did not appear
this morning at her usual hour.
A member of the household went to
awaken her and, upon opening the door,
was compelled to start back on account
of the strong odor of gas which came out
of the room.
The apartment was a small one on the
first floor of the house above the liquor
store, anil had but a small window, which
was securely fastened and covered witli a
thick shade. Mrs. Moran rushed into the
room, tore down the shade and broke the
The air thus admitted cleared the
apartment of the gas and Mr. Moran
turned to the bed to look for the girl.
He was horrified to find her lying on the
bed dead.
A further examination revealed the
fact that the gas was turned on a full
head. It is scarcely possible that the girl
had iznonmtly blown the gas out before
retiring, for she had slept in the same
i-nnm oval«ν ηΐσΐιί. fnr ». month nast: and
yet the Moran family know of no reason
for suicide.
Her body was removed to an under
taker's establishment.

Bill Kern, Charles Noelko and their fel··

Roche's Hall to rub the sore spot which
they received by being kicked bodily out
of the State Convention. It must have
been a particularly sore spot, as it took
the crowd until half-past, eleven o'clock
to get it properly rubbed.
Moreover the rubbine process must
have been an extremely wearying one, as
the imeeting took three" recesses in order
to allow the kickers to go down stairs
and "see Mr. Roche about having the
hall for another meeting."
All reporters who attempted to attend
the meeting were politely informed by

they finally came down stairs the secre

And be it further resolved. That the several
members of this committee will, to the utmost of
their ability, exert themselves in perfecting the
district organization, with a full determination
to defeat at the polls the corrupt machine which
now controls not only the politics of the county,
but in part of the whole State, and further, that
a sub committee of ten be appoiuted by the
chair to prepare a suitable address to the voters
of the countv, appealing for their aid and co
operation in our efforts to overthrow the ring.
Who the committee were under this
resolution nobody seemed to know. Sen

Found Drowned.
The decomposed body of a man was
washed up on the New York Bay shore
at Morris & Cummings' dock, Pamrapo,
yesterday afternoou. The body was
attired in dark coat, vest aud trousers,
and was that of a man apparently about
live feet eight inches in height, and of
about one hundred and eixiy pounds
weight. The features were so badly de
composed as to be unrecognizable. In
one of the pockets of the clothing was a
card whereon was written "Juies Bo

ou the other side, "boarding house." He
was evidently a 'longshoreman.

to a Funny Trial.
There is trouble among Chinese laun- I
drymen in Bergen Point. Sam Lee was
the first to establish a laundry on Avenue
D, near Dodge street, and he is generally '
spoken of by his patrons and those who
live in the neighborhood as a pretty de
cent sort of fellow.
Shortly after Lee's laundry secured a
footing Quo η g Wah started a like enter
prise on Eighth street, near Avenue D,

ment, and he wasn't there long before ν
there was trouble. Policeman Donnell, *·
who lives upstairs, and Mr. T. J. Conroy, .
who was near by, heard the fracas and J
ran in just in time to see Yung Gee hit t
Sam Lee twice. The policeman arrested a
the assailant, and he had a hearing on
Monday before Recorder Besher, who, 0
after listening to the testimony of both, t
persuaded them to shake hands.
Yung Gee charged that Sam Lee owes j
his brother "hundled fifty dlolla," and c
that he went over to Sam's to try to col- g
lect It. On the other hand, Sam said ι
that Gee charged but eight cents to laun
dry a shirt, which incensed Yung Gee
and his brother, and that the former ,
came over on Sunday to demand that he t
raise his prices. 1
Yesterday Yung Gee brought suit ,
against Sam Lee for damages for false ,
imprisonment and for assault, claiming ^
that in Siinriav'e runrnnt.ro Via hn/1
bitten in the thumb. The case was tried ,
before Justice W. Theodore Overbeck, ,
and both Mr. Conroy and Policeman Don
nell testified to having witnessed Yung ,
tree's assault uDon ham Lee. The Jus- ;
tice dismissed the complaint.
Counsellor James Benny appeared for ,
Sam Lee and Counsellor William Ander- j
son for Yung Gee. There were two inter
preters present from New York. ,
Sam Lee, it is said, claims that Quong (
Wah, who is recognized as the principal ,
agent in the matter, belongs to the "Flee ,
Masons," or "Highbinders," and that the
whole affair is the outcome of a conspir- (
acy against him because he does not ,
charge exorbitant prices. In givinghis
testimony yesterday he said that "Flee
Masons" were "vlely blad men."

Effort» to Secure the Release of One ©'
the Prisoners.
Assemblyman Farrell, of Harrison»
yesterday attempted to secure by bail the 1
release of Michael Ross, alias Sarapino, ;
one of the four Italian witnesses now held
in the County Jail in connection with the ι
Gaudioso murder. Ross is represented by
his counsel as a well to do business man.
The Assemblyman first called upon ·
Coroner Brackner, who told him
he could do nothing in the
premises without first conferring
with Prosecutor Wlnfleld. In the mean
time Lawyer Barrett, armed with a writ
of habeas corpus, also made application ι
to Judge Kuapp for Ross' release. The
Judge denied the application.
The strenuous efforts put forth in Ross'
behalf is interpreted by the Coroner and
others as the preliminaries of a scheme to
concoct a plausible story concerning the
murder upon which all the witnesses can
agree at the inquest, which will take
place next Wednesday evening.
On the niuht of the murder the watch
man at Balbach's, across the river from
the scene of the tragedy, saw a man tn
the water and drew him ont. The police
think lie may have swam from the East
Newark shore after having participated
in the assassination, and they have ar
rested Michael Garry, of East Newark, on
And HI· Accuser Apparently (acts Noth
ing, in β Queer Suit.
An interesting suit was heard In the
Second District Court, by Judsie Dayton,
yesterday afternoon. It was brought to
recover the amount of a note.
The parties belong in Kearney. A man
named Ross is the plaintiff. He had a
young man named Miles arrested for em
bezzlement. The accused was taken be
fore Justice Lynch, of Kearney, who ad
vised » settlement, which was agreed to.
Four notes were given by the father of
the prisoner, who secured an endorser.
The notes were not paid.
Counsellor Newbold, who represented
the defendants, contended that the
amount could not be collected, as the ac
tion was illegal, and no crime could be
settled in that way.
It was compounding a felony. It is
said the statute of limitation prevents the
punishment of young Miles or those en
gaged in the note transaction. Judge
Dayton has reserved his decision.
Damage Along tile Hayonue Shore·.
The storm has done considerable dam
age along both the New York and New
ark Bay shores. The tide has made in
roads at various points, and many boats
have been lost. Further damage was
prevented by strenuous exertions on the
part of owners of property and craft.
J. S. Lindquist, jauitor of the Bayonne
Rowing Association's house on the New
York Bay shore, had his float adjoining
completely wrecked, together with a long
board want ana ran leuuiuy merem. oev- ι
eral of his low boats were also dashed to i
pieces on the rocks, Involving a total loss
to him of uesrly 1200.
George Virden and William Wild, of
the N. J. Λ. C., had a small sloop boat
carried away from in front· of the club
house and sunk near the lighthouse,
where she now lies a total wreck.
Mr. John Bull, a member of the
Bayonne Rowing and Athletic Associa- I
tien, also lost a little sloop from in trout
of his place on Newark Bay.

le Write» a Letter Abasing Secretary
Noble and General Biueey.
Chicago, Sept. 10, 188Θ.—A Tribune
ipecial from Indianapolis says:—
V personal friend of Corporal
fanner received yesterday a let
er ' from the ex-Commissioner ot
Pensions, in which that gentleman
>lainly states that his resignation was
lot sent to President Harrison until after
t had been asked for or "demanded," aa
he corporal bluntly puts it.
He H&vft that the President sent Mar·
ι h al Dan Raosdell ta bint with authority
;osay that Inasmuch that an inveetiga
;ion of the Pension Office had shown
hat several thousand more pen
lions had been granted by
Tanner than during tne corresponding
leriod of Commissioner Black's admln
■tration he considered that the Pension
Office had been mismanaged and that the
raccess of President Barrisan's admin
stration demanded the immediate retire
ment of Tanner.
The Corporal writes that, as a solace
for his injured feelings, he was tendered
he office of United States Marshal at
Brooklyu, but he says that under no cir
cumstances would he accept o{ such α
compromise. The letter is full of bitter
ness and speaks in harsh terms of Secre
tary Noble and General .Bussey.
Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 14,1889.—The
Grand Army veterans of Indiaaapolis
have started a boom for General Fred
Knefier for Pension Commissioner, to suc

be forwarded to Washington at once urg
ing his appointment.
It is generally believed here that he
will be given tne position unless there
are important political reasons for select
ing a New York man for the plaoe.
Ft is said that General Knefier was
President Barrison's ilrst choice for
commissioner, but that the appointment
was not made for political reasons.
