Wamiisgton, Oct. 18. Iu vitaw of the wido pnbtlcation if the story of tho flight of Sister Sophie from the so culled Red Cross hospital in Cincinnati, and her subf equont liianiage in Chi cago, a representative of the United Press called upon Miss Barton to ascer tain in what way Sister Sophie or the hospital from which she escaped was connected with the American National Eed Cross association. Miss Barton, iu reply to questions on the subject, said: "There is ior the slightest possible connection between the two. Until the occurrence of the event to which you refer the American National Red Cross association had no knowledge of the ex istence of this "Red Cross i-istcr,' or of the existence of the hospital from which ohe is said to have oscadod." Miss Barton during; tho course of further conversation said: "The Red Cross is an organization, National and international, Lelongiiig to the governments of the world: its sign and name in this country are the property of the United States, and whatever , 1 mties or persons make use of tiher. without tho permis sion of Ihe government or its accredited agents do so iu spite of rightful posses oion. To the b;'st of our knowledge no such icrmiteion in this case has bean ashel or granted, and the methods of tho institution in question, although probably good iu themselves, aiesnch as to mislead the public iu regard to tlie true nature of a most important organi zation, giving the idea that the Red Cross is a leligious 'order,' sectarian and pn scribed. This representation, 1 csides I cing erroneor.s, is mish tiding and harmful to the public. "The. Red Cross exists for till nations and for all people, it knows no se. t. no creed, no religion, tavo the bromlost hu manity, bounded only by tho lduits of human suffering and jivop.

It is the sign of the ponple's relief for National necessities. There is no 'other lniliia y hospital flag in existence among enlightened na tions. "The Red Ci oss is no more an 'order' religious, i-ecret or ( thervviie. thiin is a war department or an exprcsscompany, and however, or whercfroni the title may have cnine there are no 'sisters of the Red Cross' in America. It does liot take cognizance of elections or assay to regulate the legitimacy of marriages, but presumes from the oharacti r of tho people in connection wit h it, that they will be likely to propcily regulate these matters for themselves.

The town wi s horrilied 'ihnrsday nig, it by ft ter rible murder. City Marshal S. U. R. Vogelsang whs shot and instantly killed at his yard gate, on Bridge street, short ly before midnight. Tho marshal had been about tho city lato and was about to letire, when he received his death wound. Tho murderer had used a charge of buckshot and fired evidently at close rniigo into Vogelsang's face, killing him instantly. The wife of tho marshal was awakened by tho shooting and lushing out to find ihe cause, dis covered the husband dead on the gram iu the yard. The murderer is unknown at present. Vogelsang m me three mouths ago had a shooting scrape with Oscar Downard, whom ho badly wounded. Following this the marshal got dissipated tor awhile, through an noyance at, tho affair, and the city coun cil requested him to resign, 'llirco weeks ago he was reinstated. He had trouble a year ago with Archie Downard, and at that time they ex changed shots. This was the starting point in the feud between them, and they had been hostilo since. The Downards have the reputation of des perate characters iu Falmouth, though Archie has been the city marshal, lie was found to be rather too tough for this responsible position, howevti-, and the city council required him to emit. The trou bio between him and Vogel sang, however, is said to have no rela tion whatever to their conneclio:i with the marshal-hip. but was one of the re sults of the quarrelsome disposition of the liownards and their readiness for a rumpus. Vogelsang had been expect ing trouble with the Bowtmrds, ai-il naturally the general suspicion is now directed agaius;- them, Archie in par ticular. The Downards live adjoining the Vogelsang residence. Vogelsang was 4(1 years of age, had been deputy ,'iheriff, and was widely known iu I'en dleton county. Archie and O.-c.-ir Downaid were ar rested for tlu-crime at 0 a. in. Fiidi-y and placed in jail. So much is the pub lic all'ectod that strong threats ate made of lynching the Downards, as they tiro believed to l:s tin right parties. (Sheriff Logan searched the house of the Downard i later iu the day, n:id found two shotguns and revolvers. o:,o lend out of each, which eorre-ponlo the three shoti heard when Vogelsang win killed. Downards have nothing to say. Further evidence is secured .against them. They were tracked to where they live from Vogelsang's house. It ii thought .lelf. Bray, now in jail, will hang also if tlie mob. is organize,! to hang the Downards. Mayor Col v in says he will send the Dowtuhils and Bray to Covington for safe-keeping. A NORTH CAROLINA TRAGEDY.

Jo'.m Dixon, a proiperous fanner of Alle gheny county, discovered that, an inti mate relation was existing between his wife and Marshal llalsey, Wednesday ho found the- pair in a compromising position and promptly shot and killed llalsey. He threatened to kill his wife, but her pifeous pleadings caused him to desist. He told her, however, that he wished never t see her again. News of the tragedy s im spread, but every body justified Dixon, and swoim that they wonld pull down the jail and free him if he should he arrested. Late iu the evening Charles llalsey, a brother of the dead man, hunted Dixon down, and pulling a revolver tried to shoot him. He was prevented by sev eral persons, who said if he wanted t) tight he would have to fight fair and givo Dixon a chance. This ho agreed to, and the two men faced each other.

Secretary ot State Blaine has been informed bv the j minister of Uititud Slates at t. : Petersburg in regard to the various re- i torts of the alleged persecution by the imsian gove.-niiieut of the Hebrews living in that couutry, that upon a thorough investigation it is a source of R ecial gratification to lie a bio to pre sent the denial not only of tho Russian government, but of the Hebrews them t elves, and confirmatory testimony that these injurious allegations are baseless. He says, that it apiiears that a para graph recently appeared in Tho Loudon limes s ating that despite the disavowal of the Russian government some COM or I 6U0 Hebrew families residing at Odessa I had been summarily notified that they must immediately abandon their homes, and, in fact, had already been ex pelled. i Scon after this publication appeared, the Briti h embassy t st- Petersburg . called upon the Bi itis':i consul at Odessa I to make a full investigation of it.
