DID EITHER MURDER MISER HENRY OF BROOKLYN? The Former Thinks the letter Killed His Father, but the Police Have One In Jail and Are Watching the Other — No One May See the' Prisoner. B kooexyn , June- 18. —Old Mr. Henry, the Brooklyn miser, who was butchered by a mysterious hand last week, is in his grave. His widow, aged and feeble, is in a sanitarium. His son Charles is the in ­ mate of an insane asylum. William, an ­ other son, is in a prison cell charged with the murder of his father. It is not only a web of evidence that the police are weaving about the spendthrift son of the miser, but they have erected a barrier to shut him off completely from communication with the outside world. This fact was instanced yesterday. A few minutes after William ’ s return from the Myrtle Avenue police court to his cell in the Fourth Precinct police sta- WILLIAM HENRY, THE BAD SON. tion a coach drove up and stopped in front of the door. Three men alighted. One was Michael F. Hennessy, a young law ­ yer; the other Samuel E. Farron, also a lawyer, and a stocky man of medium height, who was exceedingly anxious to keep his identity a secret. The lawyers have an office at 350 Fulton street, Brook ­ lyn. The three men entered the police sta ­ tion. Air. Hennessy told the sergeant at the desk that he had been retained as counsel for William Henry and asked that he be allowed to see his client. “ You can ’ t see him, ” said the sergeant. “ Why not? ” “I have orders from the captain not to permit anybody to converse with the pris ­ oner. ’ ’ “ But I am his counsel. ” “ Can ’ t help it. Those are \my orders.” Then the lawyer explained that the man of mysterious identity was an old friend of William Henry; that he had retained him as counsel, and as such he had an in ­ disputable right to visit his client. But the sergeant turned a deaf ear to his words and adhered to his original refusal. Theory of a Missing Will. The police are still working on the the ­ ory of a supposed missing will, and that the murder was committed while the old man was engaged in a quarrel with some one. Superintendent McKelvey said that he was convinced that Henry was killed on Wednesday night and not on Thursday, as the police first supposed. Later in the day the superintendent said that he had two witnesses who saw William at the house of his father on Wednesday night. Anything in the way of positive proof the police, so far as is known, do not pos ­ sess. It is all circumstantial evidence. The chief cause of suspicion against Wil ­ liam at present is his conflicting stories as to the way he spent his time on the day of the murder and before and after it. The existence of the letter is another cause of suspicion. The burden of it is directed against William. Both he and Henry say that their father wrote the let ­ ter, which breathes hatred toward the elder son and speaks of William being en ­ gaged in a plot against his life. -The police are noncommittal in regard to Walter, hut they have taken the precau ­ tion to know his movements intimately. Since his father ’ s death Walter ’ s sole in ­ terest has been centered upon the money. There are several peculiar circumstances surrounding Walter ’ s speech and actions WALTER HENRY, THE GOOD SON. in the last few days which have not been lost on the authorities, and from these cir ­ cumstances it may he said that wherever Walter goes he does not travel alone. While the funeral was in progress yes ­ terday morning William was arraigned in the Myrtle Avenue court. At the re ­ quest of Detective Sergeants Delehanty and Bearly he was remanded to await the pleasure of the police. The trunk and treasure at about the same hour were tak ­ en to police headquarters and placed in charge of the property clerk. Mrs. Maria Henry, the little shriveled up old woman who bore the abuse of her miser husband for 30 years uncomplain ­ ingly, appeared at the funeral yesterday and was the object of curious yet pitiful comment. She came to the house in a carriage from Mrs. Kearney ’ s sanitarium. Bather Drowned. NTJNDA, NT. Y., June 18. — Frank Shaw, aged 18 years, while bathing in the river, was drowned. THE PRINCETON TRAGEDY. Ohl ’ s Death Casts a Gloom Over the Closing Exercises. P einceton , N. J.,' June 13. — -The re­ mains of Frederick Ohl, the student who Was shot by the negro Gollins and who (Med yesterday, were tenderly lifted into the express train last night by his class ­ mates. Some time before the departure of the train the students gathere* at the sta ­ tion and paid reverence to his memory by silently, with uncovered heads, watching over the body. Mr. Ohl, father of the unfortunate student, received the sympa ­ thy of the faculty and the students, and before leaving personally thanked all who had given him their assistance and sym ­ pathy. Two of Ohl ’ s fellow students will ac ­ company the body to Newcastle, Pa. The four classes have passed resolutions as a testimony of their esteem for the deceas ­ ed ’ s rare manly qualities. County Physician Cantwell, who per ­ formed the post mortem examination, re ­ ported that Ohl met his death from peri ­ tonitis, resulting from the wound in the stomach. The preliminary hearing in the case will he held on Saturday. The coro ­ ner has impaneled his jury from the most public spirited citizens in town. Several students wh& were witnesses of the shoot ­ ing have been subpoenaed and will not leave for their homes until they have done all in their power to brinj® the murderer to justice. Mr. Thompson, who is the most important witness, was called to Trenton by Downs, the negro friend of Collins. Downs said that Thompson ’ s testimony is identical with his. P rinceton , N. J., June 15. — There is a general feeling of satisfaction manifest ­ ed here among the few students remain ­ ing at the college and among the town people at the news of the indictment for murder in the first degree of Collins, the negro who shot Garrett Cochran and Frederick Ohl. A speedy verdict is hoped for. Cochran is still at the infirmary. His condition has not materially changed. Newspaper Train Wrecked. N ew H aven , June 17.— The newspaper train from New York jumped the track at Spring street. The brake hose burst. Engineer Matthew C. Higgins, called for brakes, but the headway was such that he could do nothing. The train, which was running at 50 miles an hour, was all smashed to pieces. The engine left the track at a frog, rolled over three times, and the cars were piled on top of it. Hig ­ gins ’ left knee cap and leg were broken, and he also sustained internal injuries. He will live. William Chappell, the fire ­ man, was injured internally. Just an Affinity of Souls. W arwick , Mass., June -17. — Paul W. Goldsbury, the young man who was one of the principals in the so called hypno ­ tism affair of last week, in an interview, said that what others had considered a hypnotic trance was nothing more or less than the voluntary outward expression of the affinity of souls which existed, be ­ tween himself and Mrs. Wesener.

Flic Canal Connects the Hudson Kiver With the Fast Biver and Long Island Sound and Will Boom the Upper End of Man ­ hattan IsSind — It Cost Over S3,000, OOO, N ew Y ork , June 17.— 'While Germany la having a canal opening, with Europe looking on, this city is having a similar kffair, but on a much smaller scale. To- flay the Harlem ship canal from the Hud ­ son to F a East river was dedicated. The waterway is not for lange vessels and is chiefly intended to afford a passage ­ way for the canal boat and lighter traffic which has been a nuisance to the big boats In going around the Battery to get up the East river. Now these troublesome tows will glide through the northern end of Manhattan island. The canal was first projected in 1874, but nothing was done till April, 1893, when dredging commenced. The mean depth of the channel is nine feet, and the width is 5U feet. It cost $2,500,000. The day is being observed as a holiday by the people of the'city. \ There was a marine and a land parade. The former, consisting of steamers, tugs and barges, started in the Hudson river at Spuyten Duyvil and passed through the canal, thence by the Harlem river through Little Hell Gate up the sound to Oak Point. The old Casewood mansion at Oak Point, has been thrown open, and the entire afternoon and night will be given up there to feasting, speeohmaking and games. There will be a display of fireworks to ­ night, and the old . mansion will be illu ­ minated from cellar to roof. There will also he fireworks displayed from the old Jumel mansion on Washington heights, the home of General Ferdinand P. Earle. The warship Cincinnati fired a salute at the Hudson river entrance and the Atlan ­ ta at the East fiver end. In the land parade were represented all the.local, social and labor organizations. The cadets of St. John ’ s college, Fordham, THE HARLEM SHIP CANAL. marched in the parade. There were more than 130 floats in the procession represent ­ ing the different industries of the north side. The Webb School of Shipbuilding was represented by a large float bearing the partly finished model of a ship which the students were putting together as they went. The parade started from the foot of West One Hundred and Thirtieth street at the same time that the naval parade started at Spuyten Duyvil and marched along Manhattan street, One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street and Madison avenue across the Madison avenue bridge. The land and naval parades arrived at the bridge at the same hour and were review ­ ed together from there. Then the land pa ­ rade proceeded along One Hundred and Thirty-eighth street to the rendezvous at Oak Point. Governor Morton and other dignitaries were present. The feature of the day was a ceremony symbolizing the joining of the waters of the Hudson river and the sound. A young woman dipped a flask of water from the Hudson as the parade started, and when it came to anchor at Oak Point she poured the water into the sound. The Belmonts. Astors, Gouverneur Morris and other large land owners whose lands will be greatly enhanced in value and who will get the most value out of the canal have contrib ­ uted largely to the expenses of the cele ­ bration. Cut Through Marble Hill. When the problem of connecting the Hudson at Spuyten Duyvil with the head ­ water of the Harlem river first confronted the engineers, the plan of simply dredg ­ ing the Spuyten Duyvil creek to the need ­ ed dimensions was. proposed. It was found, however, that this would be a most expensive work, inasmuch as the bed of the creek is of solid rock where it winds about Marble hill at Kingshridge, and the route is too long and tortuous. The most direct route and simplest method were followed. The engineers profited by the soft mud bed of the creek until it reached Marble hill and then made a straight cut through that rocky hill to the Harlem river, sav ­ ing fully half a mile. So now\ a ship passing from the Hud ­ son river to the sound enters the canal at Spuyten Duyvil, where the creek runs through the break iu the hills that skirt the eastern hank of the river, up the broadened, deepened l®d of the creek for three-quarters of a mile to where the canal turns and goes through the great cut in Marble hill, and thence through to the Harlem river and five miles down the river to the sound. The first spadeful of earth taken from the canal was lifted from the western side of Marble hiil on Jan. 21, 1888. At that time the hiii, now covered with preten ­ tious houses and cottages, was dotted with rickety cabins inhabited by Italians. One of these, which had a .ground area of 12 square, feet, was built entirely of macaroni boxes, and, according to the old inhabit ­ ants of Spuyten Duyvil, was a wonderful structure in appearance. The cutting through this hill was the hardest nut the engineers had to crack. Today the work is complete. A broad waterway 1,000 feet in length joins the Spuyten Duyvil and the Harlem river where once little Dykman ’ s creek ran. The cut is 350 feet wide at its narrowest point, which is in the middle, and 400 feet wide at its greatest. The mean depth of the water at low tide is 18 feet. The least depth that exists at present., between the Hudson and the Harlem is ten feet. OOOO0OOOOOOO®O8O®©®0©e0O©©©0( of Bees, Wasps, Hornets, Centipedes or.
