every effort to do th:s has been met
vntn a broadside calculated to make in

had considerable to talk about the last
three days on account of the strange
actions cf a young woman from
Hi owning, Mo. Last Saturday she clad
herself in male attire, and boarding a
night stock train on the Kansas City
radroad came to this city. When the
conductor asked her for her ticket she
presented a revolver and remarked
that she guessed it was good for a pas
sage to her destination. The conduc
tor said it was a better hand than he
held, and passed on to the next aation.
Arriving here the young woman went
to a hotel and secured a room. That
night she took morphine with suicidal
intent. Her groans aroused the guests,
and one Dentley and the hotelkeeper
wtnt into the room and discovered her
condition. A physician was called, and
succeeded n saving her lite.
Word was snt her parents tu Brown
ing, and her mother came up and
pleaded with hr to go home, but the
girl refused to do s having taken a
strong liking to young Hentley. Then
the girl was put under arrest and taken
to the Oaull houw and locked into a
room. Oue of Mr. ttentley'a friends
followed and went into the room, and
by force look the girl bick to the tirst

Humphrey this afternoon oppointtd
Hon. Bishop XT. Terkins of Osweto.es
senator, to succeed the late Senator
Plumb. The fight has been a
hard one and the governor has
been besieged by frisnds of various
applicants from the day of Sen
ator I'lumb's funeral. A number
of ugly stories were set aHoat about
Perkins and he had to come here from
Washington to refute them. In speak
ing i f the appointment tonight Gov.
Humphrey said: "None of the charges
brought against , Perkins wire sub
stantiated and ho was evidently
stronger with the people than any
other applicant. It, was necessary to
appoint a man who could go right ahead
with the work uniertaken by Senator
Plumb and I was conrmctd
by reason cf his acquaintance and ex
ptrienco ia Washington that Perkins
was the best ma'i."
Senator Perkins has been a promi
nent factor id politics since his arrival
in this state twenty-two years ago. He
now lives in Washington, and one of
the charges brought against him was
that he hud lost hia residence here. The
olh-r charges were that he had been a
loibist Mid that he had criticised
Humphrey. '

Cntcaoo, Jan. 1. '"It my last drink
this year, boys," taid William Eonght
as he drained a glass of whisky in Mc
Jnerny's saloon, at the corner of
Loomis and Fourteenth streets, last
cveuiug. Then he placed his glaas on
the bar and with Thomas Burns and
Edward Maher staggered out of the sa
loon. A quarrel arose as the men stcod
there and suddenly Burns drew a re
volver and shot Enright through the
left breast just below tho heart.
-Enrgiit staggered and fell to the
sidewalk. Puma turcw away his re
volver and tied in one diiection, while
Maiier, too much under the iutlncnce
of liquor to realize what had beeu done,
reeled off in the opposite way.
The occupants of the saloon rushed
out and raised Enright to a sitting pos
ture. Then they called the police and
the wounded man was taken to the
hospital, where his wound was pro
nounced probably fatal.
As soon as the news reached tba Max
well street police a quad was sent out
after the murderer, and the neighbor
hood was ransacked for eeveral hours.
Xo trace could be found of Burns, bat
Maher was found helplessly under the
influence of liquor, and in this con
dition was locked up at tn station,
utterly unable to give any particulars
of the affray.
All the parties to the assault are
teamsters. Enright is til years of age
and lives with his wife, at No. 320
Throop street. Burns is said to be a
tough character and resides at No. 327
South May street. December J 9 he shot
his wife in the leg. but the womau for
a long lime refused to tell how she re
ceived her wound. Yesterday morn

husband shot her, but refused to prose

NO HEIRS TO A BIG ESTATE.
Princeton College Uet Part of th Itnari
Property.
i New York, Jan. 1. Mrs. Mary Ma
cre:t Stuart, widow of Robert L. Stuart,
died at her home in this city today.
She was the daughter of Robert
Macrca, one of the old and wealthy
merchants of New York, who at one
time had nine business partners in as
many different cities of the United
States.
She was 81 years old, about the same
age as ex-President McCosh of Prince
ton college, and had been his warm
friend since he came to this country.
There are no heirs in this conntry, and
none in Scotland nearer than a thirty
sticond cousin.
The . groat estatu will be divided
among chanties, and it is certain that
Princeton 'college and its theological
sebcol Till be tho largest benetfeiare.
and probably to sach anoxtent WL all
the plans of ex-President McCosh for
making it one of the greatest seat of
learning in the world can bo carried
out at once. It is an open secret that
Mrs. Stuart is the person who gave
$100,000 to 6ccur j the property of the
New York Historical society in Eighth
avenue. ,
One cold March day since her hus
band's death Mrs. Stuart went to Presi
dent McCosh with a check for f 154,000,
having learned that this sum was
needed to put the Princeton school of
philosophy on a first basis. Stuart
Hall, at Princeton, was the gift of the
Stuarts, as were the house and grounds
of its president.
Conservative estimates place her
gifts aince 1832 at nearly J 1 ,500,000, and
the family has given many millions in
charitict. .

ceeded in rostormg order.
All the North Americans except two
state that the police did their duly, and
from th 'voluminous proceedings it
ar pears that the court has done its
duty.
Whenever the prosecuting attorney

guilty parties who may only be pre
