New York, Nov. 13. Andrew H.
Green, the "Father of Greater New
York," and one of the city's oldest
and most -remarkable citizens was
shot and inetantly' killed " on the
steps of bis home ,on patk avenue
today by Cornelius M, .Williams, a
ceero, who is believed', tw.be insane.
,The shpoting was evidently " th
outcome of a delusion on the part
of the negro t that ' Mr.' Green - had
slandered him, for when he . was
asked why be had committed . the
mtifder, he replied : "I;. did it. (0
gave my character."; ; r: ,
: There were three witnesses of the
tragedy, Mrs,' Anna Bray, a domes
tic, in Mf. Green's family; Emil
Michelien, an errandl'boy, and Pat
rick Dyer, a cabmen.. According
to ttiete witneetes, the negro must
have been waiting for Mr. Green tcr
come home from bis , i ffice. The
negro'vpas stanaiog in the vesibule
of the boose, and ' as 1 Mr.. Green
etarted to ascend the three steps to
the balL door, Williams advanced
toward him. ; There Was a brief in
terchange of .word a and. then, the
negro drew a revolver and firgd five
shots in rapid' sacceEs'on. . ; ' . .

immediately and pronounced
Mr. Green dead1: 'As 'the negro's

rushed out of the house and ('took

.Theri: Williams drew-his revolver;
and -shot the old. man. The - negro
was hurried to the station housed
where, he was subjected to a search

left little doubt of the negro's insan
ity. B.-sides the revolver,- the po
life found in WiU'ams possession a
razor and a purse containing $10.
Williams appeared to be perfect
ly self-posseEsed. He said be was
single, 43 ytarB old , and lived " 'at
No. 156 West Twenty-sixth street,
aV which place, however, he is not
known. . -: , V ':,',; -i"' ;
The prisoner told a rambling
story about a colored woman, Mrs.
Bessie Davis, who until about four
months ago kept a lodging'1 house
for negroes in West Fifty-third
street, who, he said, had circulated
statements derogatory to " his char
acter, and against'- whom--Tier1 bad
been trying o. bring suit for , $20
000 for slander. The trouble he
said, dated back to the year : 1895,
when he was oi.e of her lodgers..
Her stories reached tbecongregation
of the Mount Olivet church, of
which' he was an attendant, and he
was forced to give up his rnenober
ehip there because his -fellowx.wor-Bhippers
pointed, the finger of scorn
at himniirr-7.)f:ip:3yA-ii I
-Continuing,-he said he bad ' not
been able to find the woman, who
bad been spirited away by powerful
friends He blamed Mr- Green for
befriending the woman and ena
bling her to continue her. slander
ous stories. He said be . had
asked Mr, Greeu to J'getrafter ber,"
but be had failed to . do so.;ti . .
' "l am notorry I shot him,'' ex
claimed the prisoner; 'he got what
be deserved.. ' I. my not be justified
by "soojety, but l am justified in the
eyes of Godi I am willing to go to
the electric chair if necessary to
vindicate my character.''.
Mr. Green who was a bachelor,
lived with his nephew, Timothy R.
Green, and bis three nieces.'
' No trace of tbe woman could be
fpund. The police are disposed to
believe that the Davis woman was
merely the figment of an Insane im
agination, rf. ... - . !
When Mayor Low heard of Mr.
Green's death, be ordered the . flag

The Best Remedy for Croup. . ,
(From the Atchison Kan. Globe.)
This' is the season - when the
women who know the' best remedy
for croup are' in demand in every
neighborhoods ; One of the most
terrible things in the world is to
be awakened in the middle of the
night by a whoop by one of the
children. The croup remedies are
almost as 6ure to be lost, in case of
croup,' as a revolver is sure to 1 be
lost in f case" ot burglars. ' . There'
used to be an old fashioned remedy '
for croup, known as hive syrup and'
tulu,' but some modern mothers say
that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
is better, and does not cost so much
It causes the patient to"throw- up
the phlegm" quicker, and gives re
lief in a shorter time. Give "this
remedy as soon as the croupy cough
appears and it will, prevent the at
tack.' It never fails and is pleasant
and eaft to take;1;; For sale by, Gra

Wahsington, Nov. . 11. Protec

ocratic onslaughts, even if the Cu
ban reciprocity measures go down
to defeat,, is the cry of the Republi
cans jn the House. . ; .- V
How to protect the sugar, trust is
the- question of most concern to the
republicans, and if" does.' not , give
prefereDce to the "national honor"
declaration of the president on Cu
ban reciprocity. , i ; ,
Fearful of jeopardizibg its power
to protect the trust the House was
in t-essiononly five minutes today,
Inaction, the.repijblicah cry when
the session opened, hasten empha
sized daily and it will be the. key
note to the republican procedure
until every-poesible ttap has been
taken' to stand off the democratic
determination to knockout the sugar
trust when the reciprocity measure
comes np for consideration by tak
ing off the 1.95 per cent differential
on refined sugar, the trust's source
of greatest revenue. . . . J , ;
The republican plan of procedure
was made known today. A rule
will be brought forward by the re
publican leaders that an amend

will not he in order.. Jn, the adop
tion of tbis rule will center the firsi
great fight of the fifty-eighth' con
