wounded in the abdomen thle morning
by a bullet fired by E. H. B. Mackey. an
eccentric English stenographer, who then
committed suicide. He was resting well
tonight and unless complications develop
he will recover.
Mr. Morgan probably owe his life to
the quick wit and bravery of his 14-year-old
daughter, Dorothy, who saw Mackey
draw his revolver, and struck It with
her hand. This deflected the bullet,
otherwise the postmaster would have
been fatally wounded, for his assailant
was at close range and fired four shots.
The shooting occurred at One Hundred
Forty-elxth street, a short distance
from Mr. Morgan's home. He was on
his way down town at the time.
An Investigation of the life and record
of Mackey reveate that he was of a mor
bid nature and a former Inmate of an
asylum In Worcester. Ma-s. That his
act was premeditated Is made certain
by a letter which he left, but asidl from
a fancied grievance against Mr. Mor
gan and the postofflce authorities con
cerning the handing of hl mall nothing
has come to light to Indicate why he
should have sought to murder the post
master. HI clothing, when searched,

cartridges, a heavy alungshot. a knife
with a four-inch blade and a clasp knife.
A quantity of literature on Socialism and
a slungshot similar to the one found on
the body were discovered In his room.

Father Young Usejj to Kiss
Missing Girl in Study,
Says Her Chum.
CALLED IT PASTORAL DUTY
Writes to Bishop, but Remains In
Hiding and Is Believed to Know
Where Edna Clarke Is
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 10. (Special.)
Father Payson Young, rector of St.
Mary's Church, has asked and obtained
from Bishop Nichols the right to have
his connection with the disappearance
of Miss Edna Clarke investigated by the
officers of the Episcopal Church. He
has thrown down the gauntlet to his
accusers and dared them to present the
evidence which would Implicate him in
any "unworthy association" with the
pretty art student whose inexplicable
disappearance two weeks ago has come
to be the sensation of the hour.
The letter sent to Bishop Nichols by
Father Young, arrived late tonight at
the Episcopal residence by special mes
senger. It came from this city from
the priest's unknown hiding place, for
it was impossible today for anybody to
get into communication with the
clergyman at any of his accustomed
Kissed Girl Behind Closed Door.
Father Young, in demanding an offi
cial Investigation, lias paved the way
for the admission Into the evidence
against him of the sensational story
told bv Miss Edna Reynolds, the chum
and confidant of the missing girl. It is
a story which does not read well in
print, and it is entirely problematical
how. the clergyman expects to refute
It. Father Young has secluded himself
in the last 48 hours and has not placed
himself in the position where he can
make any more admissions as to the
truth of the statements made by Miss
The priest, despite his bold front in
demanding an investigation, has al
ready been trapped Into several dam
aging statements He has confessed
that he was wont to receive Miss
Clarke in his private study, where he
lavished kisses and caresses upon her
behind closed doors. He has lamely
explained this as part of his pastoral
duty the fulfillment of that scriptural
exhortation which commands the faith
ful to "greet one another with a holy
kiss." According to his way of think
ing the "holy kiss" imprinted upon the
lips of susceptible young girls was
nothing to require an apology or ex
planation. Told Her They Were Engaged.
Miss Reynolds tells daily a little
more which her girl companion falter
Ingly told her In the days Just before
her disappearance. That story does
not place the relations of priest and
girl In the simple light of fatherly
affection. Miss Reynolds says that
the clergyman gave Miss Clarke every
reason to believe that to all Intents and
purposes they were engaged. Miss
Reynolds says that Miss Clarke told
her that Father Young even went so
far as to ofTer to purchase an en
gagement ring for his fiance. This,
savs Miss Reynolds, was refused by
Miss Clarke as being a step which
would reveal her relations with the
clergyman to her mother, who besides
being opposed to her "high church"
ideas, was bitterly opposed to receiv
ing Father Young as even a visitor in
Relieves Young Knows More.
Miss Reynolds says that, according
to her chum's story, the secret engage
ment of the priest and the schoolgirl
dated as far back as last August. Now
that Father Young's guard has been
partially broken down through a par
tial confession of his real relations
with the girl. Miss Reynolds clings
with Increased conviction to her theory
that the clergyman knows more about
her chum's disappearance than he has
yet allowed himself to admit.
The civil authorities have wired to
Dayton. O.. from which place Father
Young hails. In an endesvor to ascer
tain his former record. The police re
port they have observed Father Young
acting disgracefully at late hours on
the street with women not of his con
gregation, citing specific cases. Mean
while there Is absolutely no news of
the missing girl.
WILL BMMfflO RAISE
TEACHERS MAY GET PAY FOR
12 MONTHS IX YEAR.
Increase or 2 0 Per Cent in Salaries
Favored Matter Goes Over
Till Xext Meeting.
if it had not been for the absence of
Directors Campbell and 'Warre.n from the
city yesterday, the Board of Education
would probably have recommended to the
next meeting of the school taxpayers
that the salaries of the regular teachers
In the schools be increased 20 per cent
and that their monthly wages be paid
throughout the year Instead of during the
10 months of the school year as at present.
As the two directors were not present,
the matter was left over until the next
regular meetlns. which will be held No
vember 23. ,
The recommendation in favor of higher
salaries for the teachers came from the
finance committee of the Board, which
Is composed of Mrs. L. W. Sutton and I.
N. Fleischner.- The two directors have,
since they entered office, taken up the
causa of the teachers, and it was through
the instrumentality of Mr. Fleischner that
kitchens for the benefit of the teachers
were installed in the schools. Mrs. Sitton
took up theother side, the necessity of
an adequate salary for the teachers the
year around, upon which she and Mr.
Fleischner readily agreed. The matter
was referred to them as the finance com
mittee of the Board some time ago, but
they were not prepared to report until
yesterday. The report they presented was
in substance as follows:
"That the Board of Education recom
mend to the taxpayers at their next an
nual meeting that the salaries of all reg
ular teachers. not Including special
teachers, be Increased 20 per cent, and
that the monthly wage be continued
throughout the year if they (the tax
payers) so prefer."
The Increase in salaries of the teachers
will amount to about ?100,ooo. The salary
roll now is about f-oo.OOO a year, and
some of the teachers receive only $50 a
month 10 months of the year, and out
of the sum that they receive for the edu
cation of the young they have to pay the
expenses of their vacation season of two
months. During their vacation, they have
to study for promotion ana ior me im
provement of their pupils. At present
they receive no salary for. their vacation
work, nor even an allowance for attend
aance upon an educational Institute.
A free kindergarten was ordered estab
lished in the Holman School in South
Portland, upon petition of Mrs. Ann R.
Stephens, president of the Mothers' Club
of that school district.
IS NOT AFRAID OF MICE
Elephant at Xew York Zoo Pun
ishes Rodent Intruder.
New York Press.
' There was once a rumor going the
rounds that the genus elephant fears the
genus mouse. Luna, the Bronx Park
pachyderm. If asked the truth of this,
probably would'reply that she feels noth
ing but a strong ticklish sensation when
the word "mouse" is mentioned In her
All was quiet in the Bronx Zoo elephant
house and Luna, formerly known as
Alice, was drowsing against the wall of
her abode. Now and then she gTunted
uneasily. Possibly she was dreaming of
that time a few weeks ago when she
made her mad rush into the reptile house,
causing excitement amoig the spectators
and annoyance among the serpents,
whose repose was disturbed when Luna
smashed their glass prisons with her
mighty trunk. The elephantine heroine
of this episode awakened when something
began to tickle her foot. Sheawoke and
looked angrily at the cause of the dis
turbance. She saw -a creature so small as to be
almost invisible. It was a mouse, and the
first Luna had ever seen, her keepers say.
The rodent was scampering merrily
around the pachyderm's weighty foot.
Now and then It would stop and nibble
furiously at Luna'l toes. It was this that
had awakened her, and It was this that
now made her back discreetly to the rear
of her cage. At her first movement the
mouse raced to the side of tllfl cage,
where it paused. looking cautiously
around. Luna's keeper stood watching
the proceedings from the gangway back
of the Inclosure.
The elephant, the keeper says, stood
trembling at the rear of her home, her
little red eyes still fastened on the small,
gray tuft of fur against the farther wall.
The mouse made the next move. It ad
vanced to the middle of the cage, where
it paused again. Then it ran to the ele
phant and started to romp about the
Then Ijuna decided to stop the antics of
the mouse. She cautiously brought her
forelegs together. As the mouse jumped
upon tier toes she managed to press one
of her huge feet on the little animal's
tail There was much squeaking and
struggling at the base of that elephant
foot as the mouse battled vainly to
escape. Luna was perfectly calm, and,
her keeper said, she evidently seemed
oblivious of the rpputcd dread an ele
phant has for a mouse.
With her trunk she gingerly picked up
the struggling mouse by the tail and held
It aloft where she could examine it more
carefully. Then she trumpeted loudly, at
the same moment hurling her captive
away from her. The mouse struck the
wall with a thud uid fell to the floor of
the cage. Evidently it was not hurt much
for It raced away in fright and disap
peared between two boards. Luna leaned
against the wall and went to sleep again.

BERIJN, Nov. 10. It is expected that
the debate on the subject of the Em

his explanation soon after the opening

ation of tomorrow's interpellations re
garding measures hereafter to prevent
similar occurrences, met with the
