more World of Monday: J08. H. Smith,
cook on the ateamer Essex, of the M.

sentenced to 30 days in jail. The man
waa arreated yeaterday on the complaint
of Wilton W. Aahburn, a 17-year-old
led of Weems Wharf, Lancaster county,
Va., who charged the man with assault
ing him while on board one of the M. &
M. ateamers. Aahburn appeared before
Juatice Grannan this morning with his
face swollen, battered and bruised al
most beyond recognition, he told the
roagistrate that he had formerly work
ed on the M. & M. steamers. Yeater?
day he arrived in Baltimore, and meet*
ing one of his fellow sailora he went
aboard ship with him. The cook was
in the dining room when the pair en
tered and he is alleged to have said to
the boy: "Here, you bum, I guess you
are trying to bum your aupper in here;
but you can't, so get out" **No, I am
not" retorted the lad; "I have a place
to get my meals and I am only aboard
ahip with my friend." With that Aah?
burn thought the affair had ended, but
the cook aneaked around behind him
and hit him square in the face. The
boy fell unconscious to the floor, while
the cook continued to beat him about
tha face and head. The lad said this
morning that he waa unconscious and
could not say what he was hit with but
he thought the cook held a piece of iron
in his hand when he delivered the blow
which sent him reeling to the floor.
