Shoots at Passengers on Ferry Josie Shoots two Police Officers and is Killed. Women and Children Terror Striclen in Stampede for Safety-Sergeant Bengert and Corporal Roussell Killed Brute-- Negro Was Shot Many Times. One of the most exciting scenes that ever took place here was enacted on Wednesday morning on the ferry boat Josie, when an unknown negro, armed with three or four pistols and a rifle, with a belt and pockets full of ammu nition, terrorized the passengers on the boat while in midstream. He shot at every one he could see running from one side of the boat to the other and Pring at anything, anybody and everybody. So crazed was this maniac that after he had emptied the contents of his pistol, he would go into his pock. ets and again fill the chambers of his pistols and start firing again. The boat was in midstream when the brute started the trouble, and it is a miracle that none of the passengers were kill ed. On reaching the ferry wharf the brute ran up the approach firing right and left. The pilot of the boat gave the alarm by blasts from his whistle and soon the officers were on the scene in their efforts to capture the bloodthirsty black. The story of the affair is best told by statements of those who were eye witnesses to the affair. Luke Gillen, of Eliza and Seguin streets, who was on the boat at the time, gave the following version of the affair. His statements were cor roborated by Contractor T. B. Brown, who was with Mr. Gillen at the time of the trouble, seated in the stern of the boat. Mr. Gillen stated: "Mr. Brown and I were seated in the rear of the boat when we noticed a negro sitting there who got into an arguiaent with a white man. The white man called the negro's attention to his pistols showing, and told him that he would get into trouble. The negro became very insulting at once and said he would kill any white s of a b- who interfered with him. He started for the white man and struck him in the face with his revolver. An other white man offered assistance and he also was struck on the head and in Jured. Both white men were unknown to either Brown or I. After the negro broke away from the two men he start ed to open fire on men, women and children on the boat. The negro would run from one side of the boat to the other and would shoot as often as he saw any of the passengers. The passengers on the boat were terror stricken. Women and children were screaming and crowding each other to fini places of safety. Some of the women took shelter in the hold of the boat, while others were kept rushing from one side of the boat to the other. After the boat had landed the negro rushed up th gang-plank and as he did he shot at every one he saw. I saw Sergeant George Bengert rush to the negro and grab him around the body A NEW GYMNASTIC CLUE. Steps have been taken to organize a gymnastie club for the benefit of the young men on this side of the river, the domicile of which will be St. Mary's Hall. A preliminary meeting was held on last Saturday night for the purpose of laying a foundation for the final or ganization of the club. Jno. T. Olsen acted as temporary chairman and W. B. Durand as secre tary. About twenty-five young men were present and about as many other applications were received. Diseussions as to organization of the club were heard, which resulted in the appoint ment ef several committees. Most important amongst these were the Constitution, By-laws and Boles Committee; the Donation Committee, with B. P. Nolan as chairman, and the Membership Committee, with P. Me Oivney as chairman; all of which were instraeted to report at the next meet ing. It is planned that this club have a complete gymnasium for the develop meat of the young men of Algiers as athletes, also a library for the use of those preferring reading. The next meeting will be held this (Thursday) night at 7:30 p. m., to which all persons interested are re qasted to attend. Several important matters will be taken up sad it is hoped that the inal organisation will be r pleted Oamen wil be eeeted M te nis'm usetlag awd the k -sltte.l, ý4aws and eales wial be w seis. and kick his feet from under him. As the negro fell Bengert shot him sev eral times." Others who saw the affair state that the negro was shot by Corporal Rous sell and Sergeant Bengert. STATEMENT OF J. A. HOFFSTET TER AND WIFE. Mr. and Mrs. Hoffstetter were on the boat coming over, and he stated that the negro besides being armed with several revolvers also had beside him a rifle of some kind which was leaning against the cabin of the boat. He was very insulting and boisterous. He was heard to state that someone had taken his wife and that he would get back at the white people if he had to kill every white man in town. Leonard Langdon in his statement to the police said that he picked up one of the re volvers that was thrown away by the negro and fired three shots just about the time Officer Roussell was In the act of striking the negro with his rifle. BRAVERY OF ROUSSELL AND BEN. GERT. Too much cannot be said about the bravery of both Corporal Roussell and Sergeant Bengert. It is almost im possible to find out by evidence or statement of any kind as to which of the two really caused the death of this wild brute. Evidence seems to be fa vorable that Oofficer Roussell fired the first shot at the negro, striking him in the abdomen, while Officer Bengert, on very good. authority, clinched the ne gro and with his foot tripped him and at that time shot him several times in the head. Corporal Roussell, whose Winchester rifle failed to explode at a most critical moment, was left de fenseless before this enraged maniac and there was but one avenue of de fense left for him and that was in personal lombat with the negro. Offi cer Lecoste, who received the fatal baullet wound in the head, and no doubt by the time this paper comes to press will be dead, has also received praise from the eye witnesses of the affair for the fearless manner in which he as sisted his fellow officers. Corporal Rouasel!, who was taken to the Charity Hospital, is doing well, he having re ceived two bullet wounds, neither of which will prove fatal, unless some complications arise. The two white men on the ferry who were severely beaten by the negro brute were treat ed at the hospital for slight facia) bruises and were discharged at once. Their names are Joseph Spencer, No. 618 Washington street, and John Kre- dy, same address. Pay Us A Visit. FANCY BOILED HAM. BLOOD AND TONGUE SAUSAGE. LIVER CHEEBSE. HOGSHEAD CHEESE. JUMBO PICKLES.
