TRAGEDY IN BATAVIA
P.J. NUGENT AND WIFE AND OFFICER JOHNSON DEAD.
Outcome of a Drunken Episode on the Part of the Murderer.
Officer JOHNSON Shot While Making an Arrest - NUGENT Suicides and His Wife
Dies of Shock.
Special Dispatch to the Union and Advertiser.
BATAVIA, March 16. - Mrs. P. J.
NUGENT died to-day from shock or the result of the murder last night of
Officer Harvey and the suicide of NUGENT.
Coroner PARMELEE summoned A.W.
SKELLEY, M.W. HEAL, C.A. WILLIAMS, John THOMAS, D.C. HOPKINS, C.A. FORWARD,
Charles RUPP and W.W. LEAVENWORTH as a jury and held an inquest this forenoon
on the death of NUGENT and JOHNSON, in Justice ROBSON's office.
The testimony taken was
substantially in corroboration of the facts published below and the jury found
a verdict in accordance with the facts.
NUGENT shot the officer with a
small revolver and himself with a larger one.
He also had a big dirk knife in his
pocket. He fired the shot which killed himself while Mrs. O'DONNELL was
grappling with him in him in an endeavor to get the weapon.
The revolver was not accidentally
discharged. He placed it to his head and pulled the trigger.
Harvey JOHNSON, the murdered officer, had been a constable off and on for
several years. He was appointed to his present term on Wednesday of this week
and this was his first official act. He leaves a family.
DETAILS OF THE TRAGEDY.
P.J. NUGENT, a Rag Peddler, Shoots and Kills Officer Harvey JOHNSON and Then
BATAVIA. March 16. - The worst
tragedy in the history of Batavia was perpetrated last evening. P.J. NUGENT, a
rag peddler, murdered Officer Harvey JOHNSON and then committed suicide.
NUGENT, who resides on Union street, went home about 6 o'clock intoxicated.
As soon as he arrived he proceeded
to smash doors and windows, and, procuring a revolver, fired a shot at a Mrs.
CONNORS, who was visiting his wife.
The powder blew into the woman's
face, but paralyzed with fear, she sat motionless until the man commenced to
abuse his wife, when she slipped out and hastened to the office of Dr.
McCARTHY, where her face was dressed.
Shortly after Mrs. CONNORS departed NUGENT's wife escaped from the house and
running to the house of neighbors begged them to send for an officer.
As a result Officer Harvey JOHNSON
soon appeared with a warrant for NUGENT's arrest.
He entered the front door, warrant in hand, but was no sooner in the house
than NUGENT emerged from a bedroom and without a word of warning raised a
revolver and shot point blank at the officer. The ball struck one inch above
the right hand side of the mouth, penetrating the base of the brain.
The wound was instantly fatal.
Officer JOHNSON pitching forward on his face, striking a stove as he fell.

William Barlow Departs and Leaves His Six-Year-Old Daughter With No Means of
Mrs. Josephine SHIED of 3 Jefferson avenue called at the city attorney's
office this morning and made affidavit to obtain a warrant for the arrest of
William BARLOW on the charge of deserting his 6-year-old daughter.
BARLOW and his little girl, she states, have been boarding at her house since
the death of the child's mother, which occurred some time ago. The main
worked on the Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg road and always paid her for
the board of himself and the little child promptly. About eight weeks
ago, however, BAROLOW either left the railroad company, or was discharged,
after drawing his month's wages.
BARLOW came to the house on the day he was paid off, but said nothing about
having lost his job. Mrs. SCHIED knew he had money, but as he only owed
two weeks' board and was considered to be good, the landlady did not ask him
for any. He went out of the house during the day and Mrs. SCHIED has not
seen him since. The little girl has been cared for since BARLOW's
disappearance, but now Mrs. SCHIED feels that she cannot provide for her any

PULLED HIS BEARD
That's How Mrs. Leonard Henkle Defended Herself
Family Skeleton Made to Dance Merrily in Police Court This Morning
Defendant Discharged Because the Evidence Did Not Show
That Mr. Henkle Assaulted His Wife
A family skeleton was trotted out in the Police
Court this morning and made to dance till its bones rattled when the case
of Leonard HENKLE, the well-known inventor, charged with assaulting his
wife, was tried. Mr. HENKLE lives at 12 Lamberton Park and was married in
September last to the wife who makes the complaint. There are two children
in the family, one a bright little girl who was adopted by Mr. HENKLE some
years ago, and the other a baby, 2 years old, a child of Mrs. HENKLE. The
trouble between HENKLE and his wife is over the adopted child according to
the evidence. When the case was called this morning Mr. HENKLE accompanied
by the adopted girl was in the court room. Mr. HEBBARD of the Humane
Society appeared for the prosecution.
Mrs. HENKLE'S story, as told on the stand was as
follows: "All the trouble has been on account of the little girl. She
has been disrespectful to me. On the 11th of March the child was
especially annoying to me. I told Mr. HENKLE and he began abusing me with
his tongue. The child then attempted to slam a door and I tried to prevent
her. Mr. HENKLE then raised his hand to strike me. I raised my hand
to ward off the blow and his hand struck my arm and took the skin off it.
That afternoon I went out for a while and when I returned I found myself
locked out. It was with a great deal of difficulty I managed to get
in. When I did get in he struck me."
"Did you pull Mr. HENKLE's whiskers?" asked
Mr. HENKLE's counsel.
"yes, I pulled his whiskers, and he and the little
girl went into the other room and counted the hairs I pulled out. You
don't suppose I was going to let him thump me around and not do anything.
Of course I pulled his whiskers."
"Did you pull them more than once that
day?" asked the attorney.
"I may have. He must have had a good supply
"Were you not in the habit of pulling his
"I had to defend myself some way."
"That afternoon, when you found yourself
locked out, didn't you break the door in with an ax?"
"I broke the knob off and bent the lock. I had to
in order to get it. When I got in he struck me."
Philetus CHAMBERLAIN, Jr., was called as a
witness. He lives at 10 Lamberton Park, next to the house occupied by
Mr. HENKLE. Mr. CHAMBERLAIN said that on the morning of the alleged
assault Mrs. HENKLE came to his door with blood issuing from a wound in
her arm. He had noticed that Mrs. HENKLE had always been kind to the
adopted girl as well as her own child, and there had been a great
improvement in the child's appearance. The child he had observed, had been
very saucy to Mrs. HENKLE. The witness, when Mrs. HENKLE complained to him
that she was locked out, advised her to break in. He noticed soon after
that she had got into the house. Later she came to him and showed him a
red mark on her face and said Mr. HENKLE had struck her again.
Miss STRICKLAND, who lived at the HENKLE house
for five months, said she had frequently stepped between HENKLE and his
wife to prevent him striking her.
Mr. HENKLE's version of the trouble on the 11th
instant was to the effect that the child complained to him. He went into
the room and his wife brandished a piece of a chair over his head,
threatening to knock his brains out. She pulled his whiskers and struck
him on the nose. He did not strike her, he said; in fact, he never struck
her, but had perhaps pushed her away from him forty times. The whole
trouble, he said, was over the adopted child, whom he had given a home,
and whom he loved. He also loved his wife's baby, and said he had
repeatedly told his wife to let him live in peace so he could make a
living and keep a home for the children.
Dolly, the adopted child, a bright girl, 11 years
of age, testified that on the morning of the alleged assault she was at
the stove getting her own breakfast. She coughed, and Mrs. HENKLE turned
around and said she did it to irritate her. She then raised a piece of a
chair and threatened to strike the child. The later told Mr. HENKLE, and
when he came into the room Mrs. HENKLE threatened to knock his brains
At the conclusion of the testimony, Judge ERNST
discharged HENKLE, saying that while the affair was an unfortunate one,
there had not been sufficient evidence to show that Mr. HENKLE had
assaulted his wife.
There Will be No Contest of the Will of John H. Gordon
The objections to the probate of the will of John H.
GORDON, which were filed with the surrogate a couple of weeks ago were
withdrawn this morning, and there will be no contest. John D. GORDON, a
brother of the deceased, had objected to the probate of the will. The
estate amounts to about $20,000.
The heirs-at-law of the decedent are: Alexander F.
GORDON, Caledonia; Angus C. GORDON, Rochester; George D. GORDON, New
York city; Edwin Y. GORDON, Helen E. GORDON and Charles R. GORDON,

EHRSTEIN SENT UP
He of High Fence Fame and Poetic Inclinations goes to Jail to Sober Up.
Anthony EHRSTEIN of 9 Rugraff street, he of high
line fence notoriety, who is a laborer by occupation, but spends much time
writing poetry about his neighbors and then tickling himself in the ribs
to make himself laugh over it, is in trouble.
EHRSTEIN, who when sober does not appear to be
overburdened with sense, is very queer and does some strange things when
intoxicated. His principal delight when under the influence of liquor is
in exercising his vocal organs, and there is a saying in the neighborhood
that EHRSTEIN's yells are so well known by people there that when children
awake in the night and ask what strange sound they heard, the mothers
invariably say, "Never mind, don't be alarmed; EHRSTEIN's drunk
again, that's all."
EHRSTEIN has been drinking for several days past,
and is said to have written more poetry than usual, and to have sung his
favorite songs and yelled his favorite yells till he has driven his wife
and neighbors almost to despair, Mrs. EHRSTEIN, who takes very little
stock in her husband's ability as a writer of poems, applied yesterday for
a warrant for his arrest on a charge of drunkenness and making a nuisance
of himself. He was sent to jail this morning and will remain there till he
becomes sober and the smile which always, drunk or sober, wreathes his
smoothshaven face, reaches its normal state, when but one lone tooth is
visible and there is a twinkle in Anthony's eye which seems to say:
"I get even mit him yet; is it is."
WAY UP ON THE POLE
A Workman on the Stick on the Chamber of Commerce Building
When the flagpole on the new Chamber of Commerce
building on St. Paul and Main streets was used for the first time, on
WASHINGTON'S birthday, it was found that the upper pulley needed
readjustment. This morning a workman climbed to the top to make the
repairs. His work occupied over half an hour, during which he was watched
intently by passersby. "High perch that," said one. "Too
windy for me," was the reply. It is 163 feet from the sidewalk to the
top of the building, and the flagstaff is 72 feet in length, making a
total of 235 feet. The climber seemed to work with case through visibly
swayed by the stiff north wind.
TWO BOLD ROMANS
Ran Away From Their Homes Intending to Go West
Harry FINSTER and Herbert HITCHING, runaway boys
from Rome, were arrested at the Central depot at 4 o'clock this morning by

and HITCHING 12. Between them the boys had $6. They had been as far as
Buffalo, with the intention of going to Chicago, but at Buffalo they
concluded to turn back and they arrived here this morning. They will be
held here till their parents are notified and send some one after them.
The boys are at the Shelter and from what they say it is apparent they
will never again run away from their homes to go west.

the Young Men's Christian Association. It was while he was practicing in
the gymnasium of the association that he received a fall and suffered an
injury to his right shoulder which was the cause of his death. The

pronounced the trouble sarcoma. April 1st Mr. MARCY went to New York and
entered the German hospital, where Dr. GERSTNER removed the right arm at

his business until January 22d, when he was taken with a chill and
removes to his home. In politics Mr. MARCY was a Democrat. (couple lines

Luke's Church but afterwards became a member of the parish of St. Paul's
and remained connected with that church until the hour of her death,
although for the past two years had been unable to attend church. Her
condition did not prove extremely serious, however, until about two
weeks ago. As late as five months ago she had been well, mentally and

KIDNAPPED CHILD FOUND
Norma HOGAN, who was surreptitiously removed from this city by her
mother about four weeks ago, was found in Syracuse yesterday and was
brought back to Rochester by Detective LONG last night. The child is 8
years old, and is the daughter of James HOGAN, a New York Central
railroad employee, who lives on Jay street. Last fall HOGAN began a suit
for divorce against his wife. After the suit was begun Mrs. HOGAN left
the city and went to Syracuse.
On the 19th of last month, the child while playing on
Saratoga avenue, was spirited away. The little girl had been at school
that day, and on her way home met her grandmother. The latter went into
a house on Saratoga avenue and left the girl playing in the street. The

taking her by the hand, led her away. She was put into a passing street
car, and that was the last seen of her by her companions. The matter was
reported to the police and a thorough search of the city was made, but
no trace of the child could be found. The Syracuse police were then
notified and yesterday Detectives DORNER and O'BRIEN of that city
located the girl in the Davis block on West Fayette street. When the
Rochester police were notified of this Detective LONG was sent there and
the child was brought back.

BOTH WANT THE CHILD
Judge Ernst Will Dispose of Little Norma Hogan
Hogan Says That a Saloon Keeper Had Caused the Trouble --
Divorce Proceedings Pending --
The Brother's Statement
Upon one subject James HOGAN and his wife are
agreed - each is desirous of obtaining a divorce from the other.
There is another subject, however, upon which they
have not been able to come to an understanding, and that concerns the
custody of their 6-year-old daughter, Norma. Both parents desire to
obtain possession of the child and each has been energetically working
to this end ever since their domestic troubles culminated, about six
months ago, in a separation.
The affairs of the HOGANS were aired yesterday
morning in police court in connection with the disposition of little
Norma. The child was spirited away from this city on the 19th of last
month while playing on Saratoga avenue, by Mrs. HOGAN. All traces of
her was lost, and although HOGAN suspected his wife of kidnapping the
child, he was unable to obtain any trace of either wife or child. The
police were notified and a thorough search of the city failed to
reveal the whereabouts of the little one.
HOGAN knew that his wife was residing with a
sister in Syracuse, and he invoked the aid of the authorities of that
city in his search for her. On Wednesday two detectives located the
child in a block on West Fayette street. Detective LONG, of this city,
was sent to Syracuse and returned with HOGAN's daughter.
The girl was living with her mother. Mrs. HOGAN
protested against having the child taken from Syracuse, and when the
detective insisted made up her mind to accompany the pair back to
HOGAN and his wife (unreadable) in police
court. Norma had spent the night in charge of Matron DeSTACHLER. She
is a bright and pretty little girl, and amused everyone in the court
room with her artless prattle. The child clung fast to her father, and
seemed very much attached to him.
HOGAN was represented by his attorney, Eugene
DWYER. Judge ERNST decided to rest the case until to-day, and in the
meantime the little girl was placed in care of her grandmother,
HOGAN claims that his domestic happiness has been
wrecked by Saloonkeeper Augustus BURROUGHS, of No. 110 West avenue.
The HOGANS lived in the Miller block on West avenue when the trouble
first commenced. HOGAN at that time was employed on the Buffalo,
Rochester & Pittsburg railway. He says that he had every
confidence in his wife, and that although he knew that BURROUGHS and
she were acquaintances, suspected nothing wrong.
Finally the idea that all was not right
dawned upon him. He watched and on several occasions found out that
during his absence upon the road BURROUGHS and Mrs. HOGAN had gone to
The climax came one night last summer. HOGAN put up
a job on the pair and gave his wife to understand that he intended
remaining away from home until the following day. He left the house
but instead of going out of town returned to their apartments between
10 and 11 o'clock. He found the rooms deserted with the exception of
the presence of Norma, who lay asleep in her crib.
He walked through to a porch in the rear and under
the beams of a full moon he says he spied Mrs. HOGAN perched on
BURROUGH's knee. The sight made him wroth and in a second afterwards.
BURROUGHS was choking and writhing in the grasp of the angered
husband. HOGAN choked BURROUGHS until he was tired and then threw him
out of the house.
After this denoument Mrs. HOGAN promised to do

When he recovered from his astonishment HOGAN began
an investigation. He soon ascertained that the furniture had been
stored with the Metropolitan Storage Company under BURROUGH's name.
The next thing HOGAN knew, he says, was that his wife and her paramour
were in Chicago. From Chicago they returned to Rochester and boarded
awhile at the Atlantic hotel on North St. Paul street.
By means of a writ of habeas corpus HOGAN
eventually managed to gain control of the child. He left her in care
of his mother with whom she remained until Mrs. HOGAN abducted her
It was considerable of a mystery to HOGAN to
account for the means whereby BURROUGHS and his wife were enabled to
travel about the country and live while they were evading his search.
He says that recent developments have proven to him that a man who

Mrs. HOGAN with funds. He thinks that the woman has been fooling this

were married at Pittsford on Thursday evening by Rev. George H.
GOMPH of the German Lutheran Church.
--Mrs. Anna GOOD, wife of Charles GOOD, died yesterday morning at
her home in Pittsford. Mrs. GOOD was formerly Miss Anna DICKENS and
is a niece of Mrs. Thomas PLUMB and Miss Anna DICKENS, of Pittsford.
--The funeral of Mrs. Dennis SADDEN, wife of William H. SADDEN of
Pittsford, was held at the family residence yesterday afternoon. The
funeral was private, only the immediate relatives and friends of the

clergyman. The interment was in Mt. Hope cemetery, Rochester.
--The large steam engine owned by Michael KING of Pittsford, used
for threshing and other purposes, was in the basement of Mr. KING's
cider and feed mill last November when the building was consumed by
fire, and it was thought to be ruined, but it has been returned from
the factory where it was sent a few days after the fire and is found
to be as good as new, and this week it commenced service again in
moving a large building.
--About 1 o'clock yesterday morning, a frame building on Filkins
street, Fairport, was partially destroyed by fire. The house was
owned by Fred GRABB of that place, and occupied by himself and
family. The fire is supposed to have originated in a defective pipe
or chimney. Some part of the contents of the house was saved, but
much was destroyed by fire, smoke and water. The loss is believed to
be mostly covered by insurance. This is the first alarm of fire in
Fairport in more than eight months.
--Dr. L. C. GALPIN, of Scottsville, has preserved for William
HUMPHREY at his request a peculiar freak of nature in the form of a
pig with the head and feet of an elephant. This is a full-sized,
well-developed pig, save that the head is like an elephant's head
with a trunk two inches long. The body is entirely destitute of
hair. It was born with eleven others, all of which are perfectly
formed pigs. It only lived a few minutes after its birth. Search has
been made through all statistics at hand and no record can be found
of any thing of this character.
BULLETS IN HIS BREAST
William Uniman, a Henrietta Farmer, Tries to Kill Himself.
William UNIMAN, a young farmer living in
Henrietta, shot himself twice in the breast Thursday afternoon,
presumably because he could not marry the girl he loved, owing
to difference in religious faith.
Thursday, Adam UNIMAN, one of the oldest and
wealthiest farmers in Henrietta, drove to Rochester, leaving the
young man alone on the farm. When he returned at _ o'clock in the
afternoon he found the young man lying unconscious on the floor with
two bullet holes in his breast and the revolver that had been used
lying by his side. A physician was at once summoned. He found
the wounds would very likely prove fatal. It is feared that he
cannot live more than a few days.
UNIMAN for the last few years spent much of his
time in this city, and is said to have traveled in rather fast
company. For some time he has been going with a girl who lives in
the northwestern part of the city, and whose family are firm
Catholics. When they saw the intimacy springing up between the two
young people they did everything they could to discourage their
marrying. UNIMAN is a short, thick-set fellow, 28 years of age.

Runaway Lockport Boys who Started to Go to California
Four ambitious youngsters, Bernard
WELLBROOK, 14 years of age, Frank GRAVES, 13, Clarence HOBBS
14 and Roscoe HOBBS 10, left their comfortable homes in
Lockport Sunday to seek their fortunes in California. They
went to Sunday-school, and after that the day being a lovely
one, they proposed a trip. The HOBBS's boys had $17, with
which they had intended to purchase a bicycle, and with this
magnificent capital they proposed to investigate the
mysteries of the wild and wooly west. They walked to Halls
Station, ten miles west of Lockport, and from their took the
train for Buffalo. In the meantime, as the day wore on the
parents, who are well-known and respected residents, became
worried about the non-appearance of their children, and as 6
o'clock came on and no youngsters appeared, they consulted
Chief MOLYNEAUX. He traced the boys as far as Hall's
Station, and learned that after partaking of liberel
refreshments there, they had boarded a train for Buffalo.
Superintendent BULL was notified to watch for the
youngsters. At 9 o'clock in the evening one of the patrolmen
saw four young boys leave the Central-Hudson train at
Exchange street, and on questioning them found they were the
Lockport runaways. They were taken to the station and kept
over night. They were arraigned in police court yesterday,
Monday, morning on the charge of truancy, and ordered sent
back to their parents at Lockport. They returned an unhappy
but wiser looking crowd.

TRIED TO TAKE HIS LIFE
The Attempted Suicide of a Wyoming County Prisoner
Hanging In The Jail
Found on the Floor of His Cell Apparently Dead --
Made a Slip-Knot of a Towel but the Knot Slipped and Saved
A man calling himself Henry CAVANEY, who
had been working at the Goumlock salt works in Warsaw for
two weeks, was arrested on Friday charged with obtaining
board and accommodations at the Hotel McAllister and
surreptitiously removing his baggage. At an examination held
before Justice ZWETSCH on Saturday, CAVANEY pleaded guilty
to the charge, and also confessed to having been drunk and
disorderly. He was sentenced to the Erie county penitentiary
for ninety days, being recommitted to the county jail until
his removal to Buffalo yesterday morning. Saturday night an
unusual sound was heard in the corridor of the jail, and
entering it at once, Sheriff WORDWORTH found CAVANEY lying
on the floor of his cell, face downward and apparently dead.
Dr. WILSON was summoned and it was sometime before the man
was restored to consciousness. It was found that he had made
a pretty successful attempt at suicide. He had fastened a
towel to the grating of his cell window, and through the
loop thus made, fastened the ends of a scarf which he had
corded around his neck with knot under the ear. He had
accomplished this by standing on a chair which had been
pushed aside afterward. He had evidently been hanging for
sometime, and his fall, which had aroused the sheriff, was
occasioned by the slipping of the knot in the scarf. A
letter was found in the cell directed to CAVANEY's brother
in Somerset, N. Y. The man is 34 years of age, and among
other stories told, says that he escaped some years ago from
the Rochester Asylum, where he had been confined for two
years and more. His record seems to be a bad one, and shows
that he has been "sent up" two or three times.

at his residence. He was found on the path between his
residence and the poultry house. He had laid there all
night. He was one of the first residents of the village
having been born at Wells, Vt., in 1817 and moved to Perry
in his infancy. He built the first hotel at Silver Lake in
1860, which is now called Saxtons. From 1850 to 1859 he was
a conductor on the New York Central railway. He had been a
produce dealer and merchant of Perry, but never a
politician. He was well known to hundreds of visitors at
Silver Lake as the best fisherman and boat builder. He
leaves one son who is an engineer on the Central railroad,
and a daughter, Mrs. J. S. GARRISON, of Perry. Heart disease
was the cause of death.
TO END HER TROUBLES
Tired of Her Hard Life, Mrs. McConnell Took Poison
Blames Her Husband
He Had Left His Girl Wife to Struggle for a Living Alone
The Woman is Expected to Recover - A Pathetic Story.
After four years of hardships
with a worthless and dissolute husband, pretty Mrs.
Clarence McCONNELL, who, although she has two children, is
only 19 years old, tried to end her life yesterday
afternoon by taking poison. She was in a critical
condition for a while, and it was feared that her attempt
would be successful, but earnest work by physicians
brought her out of danger.
The girl's life with McCONNELL
has been a pathetic one. She met him when she was only 15
years old, too young to marry or to be a judge of men, and
she married him in spite of rumors that his character was
not of the best. He had a good place in a lamp factory,
and was earning wages sufficient to support them both in
comfort. They lived very happily for a few weeks, but soon
the charm of married life wore away for McCONNELL, and he
went back to his old friends, and began to hang about the
saloons. His young wife began to see very little of him,
and to receive less and less of his weekly wages and he
frequently came to their home late at night in an
hilarious state of intoxication.
Gradually the young couple sank
into poverty, and McCONNELL drank more and more. He lost
his work in the lamp factory, and for a time his girl-wife
had hard work to keep the wolf from the door. Finally the
money she received from him was not enough to support her,
and she had to help out by going to work herself. There
was no one to whom she could appeal for help, and no
relatives or friends to go to. The girl, young as she was,
had to struggle along all alone, and it is said that part
of the time she supported her husband too. Her case came
to the attention of the Humane Society recently, but
little could be done for her, as her husband was out of
work and had no money to give her.
Two months ago McCONNELL was arrested
for drunkenness and disorderly conduct, and was sent to
the penitentiary for a term of thirty days. When his term
was out he returned to his wife's rooms penniless,
intending to live upon her earnings. She had found work in
Harding & Todd's shoe factory at the corner of State
and Platt streets, and was earning just enough to buy food
for herself and the two small children. She tolerated him
as long as possible, but last Sunday he came to her rooms
in the block at No. 553 State street, very drunk, and
persisted in remaining. She was obliged to call in Officer
SCHOLL, who put McCONNELL out.
The girl had hoped that her husband
would reform, as he had often promised to do, and that she
could soon leave her work in the shoe factory and live
comfortably with him as she had done when they were first
married, but when she found that he was growing worse and
worse and then, finally, when he was arrested, she became
very despondent. She saw, that with her small income, she
would before long be obliged to apply to the poor
department for help, and she hated to think of being
forced to do so.
Yesterday afternoon as she was going to
her work in the factory, she bought a bottle of laudanum.
She told nobody of her intentions, but hid the bottle in
her dress. Shortly after 1 o'clock the girl's who were
working in the room with her, saw her put her hands over
her face and fall heavily to the floor. They thought she
had fainted, and that is what they told the foreman. A
carriage was called and the girl was taken to her rooms.
Officer SCHOLL learned that the girl
had taken poison, and he called Dr. PHILLIPS. The
physician did what he could for her, and then decided that
she should be taken to a hospital.
It was a very dismal scene that
confronted the ambulance officers when they climbed the
stairs in the block where the girl was. There was no
carpet on he floor of the rooms, and hardly any furniture
in them. Everything betokened the deepest poverty. Three
gray-haired old women, who had been kind enough to give
the girl what little help they could while she had lived
there, were standing about talking together in whispers,
and on a broken-down bed in a corner lay the would-be
suicide covered with a pile of rags. She had a round,
childest, very pretty face, which bore little signs of the
hardships she had endured.
"It's her husband that's to
blame," said one of the old women. "She didn't
have any money, and he's always treated her badly. She's
had to work too hard for a young thing like her."
The girl was apparently asleep, but the
old women said she had lost her consciousness. The
officers carried her downstairs and took her in the
ambulance to the Hahnemann Hospital.

late home No. 45 Sophia street, at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow

--Mrs. Martha JOHNSON, wife of Lyman JOHNSON, died

age of 72 years. Mr. and Mrs. JOHNSON had been married
over 50 years and have resided on Hill street for 46
years. The deceased leaves a husband, Lyman JOHNSON, who
is well known, and who was formerly a member of the police
force and who has been a constable and deputy sheriff for
MARCH FEAST OF SOCIALISTS
The march feast of the Socialist Labor
party was held last night at Schenck's Hall, and every
available space was taken. The early part of the evening
was given up to a programme consisting of music and
recitations given in German. During the evening J.
DOLLRATH delivered an address in German on the subject of
socialism. His address was devoid of any of the outbursts
so generally associated with the movements of the
Socialists. After the programme had been completed dancing
was enjoyed until an early hour.
PROFESSOR ROWLEE ON BOTANY
Professor W. W. ROWLEE, Instructor in
botany in Cornell University, lectured before the Academy
of Science, in Anderson hall, last evening. Besides the
full membership, there was a large attendance of guests.
The lantern views, used to illustrate the rather technical
explanations made by the professor, were excellent.
Professor ROWLEE handled his subject in a masterly manner.
He said that although a seed is often referred to as a
germ, it is not, strictly speaking, a germ, but is rather
a young plant arrested in its growth. In most seeds there
is a well defined plant axis which is in all respects
comparable to the stem axis of the mature plant. Professor
ROWLEE spoke for nearly two hours, holding the attention
of his audience throughout the lecture.
ALIMONY FOR MRS. SUTTON
The question of alimony for Mrs. SUTTON
in the suit for divorce brought by her against her
husband, Bandmaster SUTTON, was argued before Justice
RUMSEY in the special term yesterday, by W. W. WEBB for
the plaintiff and George V. FLECKENSTEIN for the
defendant. It appeared in the course of the argument that
the plaintiff's attorney might have gone on with the case
last October, having secured a default, and on account of
the delay Justice RUMSEY refused to allow more than $15
counsel fees, and informed the attorney that he must
proceed at once to judgment if he expects any allowance of
