Attempt to Poison tha Big Elephant in Central Park, He Refuses to Swallow Vegetables Containing Prussia Acid Fed to Him by His Keeper*. DEFIES DEATH. NEW YOIIK. May 11.—Biff "Tip," the rogue elephant who has killed eight keepers, and has of late years been the terror of Central park employes, was doomed to die at 8 a. m., but refused tri permit the carrying out of the pro- gramme as prepared by the park authorities. Ho still lives. Fixod Hll fate. It was decided, inasmuch as Tip had becomo intractable and a constant menace to the 'peace of the park, that ho should die. Bather than terrify the other animals in the zoological department by the report of firearms the park board decided to try hydro- cyanic, or prussic acid, judiciously administered to his elephantine mightiness. News of the plan was made public, and there arose a clamor for tickets to the execution. So great was the desire to see what an elephant would do after partaking of prussic acid that the pressure for front seats became tremendous and annoying. Enough passes wore issued to fill the elephant house with people and tho most rigid rules were made to exclude the uninvited. Prepared for an Emergency. The crowd came, however, without Invitations, and got as near as possible, and stayed there, although unable to see anything of the unprecedented repast and its effects. It was feared that if the digestive apparatus of -.. an elephant were found proof against prussio acid Tip might become enragedt" ot being mode the subject of efeperlment and might make his surrUwndings uncomfortable for the spectators. So a force of five expert marksmen, carrying express rifles loaded with explosive bullets, was stationed close by to be of service in case Tip struck for better fare. The spectators were aware of tho possibilities of the cose and were prepared to >inake a hurried <xit Tho titters of the ani- mUFh'ouse were left open. A strange Uroaltfmt. A breakfast of carrots was prepared, some of the vegetables being plugged with big capsules-of the deadly drug. It was thought that Tip would know no pain; that after tho first dose of poison he would fall unconscious and die; in co'nvulsions in about twoseconds. Exactly at 6:58K o'clock a. m., Otto Mops, who has been for years an animal trainer both in Germany and this country, walked up to the cajje and handed Tip airose-colored applo which had a big dose of cyanide of potassium hidden under its surface. The big fellow nibbled at it for a moment with his trunk end finally put it in his capacious mouth. But when he crunched it between his teeth he evidently felt that there was something •wrong with the taste and spat it out Mops than tried him with a carrot, which was similarly drugged, but Tip refused to taste it as he did another apple and carrot which were passed to him afterward. Altule Him Slightly 111. Keeper Mops then gave Tip a piece of bread containing about two ounces of the deadly drug, but that big fellow, after munching slowly it a couple of times, threw it also to the floor. Tip undoubtedly had his misgivings about the dainty morsels which were being fed to him, but the doctors said that he had certainly . got enough poison into his system to kill a dozen horses. The drug did not seem to have very much effect on him until nearly au hour .afterward, when the violent motions of his head, body and trunk became less rapid and his legs seemed to be getting weak. This lasted only a short time, however, and then Tip regained his wonted vigor. Still Alive and Healthy.' The general opinion at tha menagerie at 10 o'clock was that the attempt to kill Tip was a failure. He was apparently as healthy as he was before he took the poison. He was then stand- Ing up and had stopped lifting one leg after the other nervously as he did Shortly after taking the poison, and was now standing firmly. The original plan of the park board Was, in case of failure of the poison, to murk a certain part of the elephant's head with chalk by means of a long pole in order to direct the aim of the 'shooters. President Haines, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, however, refused to allow any shooting at Tip. The Kllllnc Pnntponed. At 10 o'clock it was announced by Park Commissioner Straus that no further attempt would be made to poison the elephant or to kill him in any other way until the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had been consulted. Superintendent Hauklnson, of the Society tor the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals says that Tip will not be killed immediately. "The matter rests now •ntirelv in °nr hands," said he. We will devise some method of killing him, .wmae ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^^ ' ' not know when hs • -•' "s& •>'..'''* . »* »v,.iiBV£&i» At 4 o'clock p. ra.

RUNNELLB, la., May 11. -Commodore Kelly's navy Hailed away from Run- nclls at 1 o'clock a. m., and for the first time the boats were arranged in some sort of order. Kelly prepared for the start Thursday afternoon. He spoke at the town hall at night and intended that the flotilla should move at 11 p. ro. Because of delay in (securing provisions, especially coffee, it was two hours later when the pilot- boat moved out Ho sea, and Bugler Garbcr sounded the advance. Commodore Kelly's flagship followed the first pilot-boat. The three commissary boats were next in turn and then 120 of the flatboats bearing men fell in in single file. The column moved down the river in a picturesque manner, ithe bugle orders ringing put clearly over the water. Just 2 miles of safe traveling was granted the navy and then, several boats having become stuck on sunken rocks, the whole line tied up till daylight After a cup of hot coffee all a round, the boats were floated away again. Commodore Kelly was angry when he found that during the night company C, of Sacramento, secured possession of a beef contributed to the army and started out on Its own hook. Kelly sent a skiff with trusted men after the deserters, and declared that he would keep them in tho rear all the way to: Washington. . Gen. Kelly said: "We are enjoying the trip on 'the water, and ezpect to inalfe 50 miles a day from this time. We are going to Washington, and nothing can deter us. The loading organizations of the country are sending us generous sums of money, so that we will not starve, even if local charity is scaut." EFFECT OF THE STRIKE. The Coaling Trade in Philadelphia F««el» It Greatly. Pmr-ADKLPntA, May 11.— The strike of the soft coal miners is having a temporarily disastrous effect on the coaling trade of Philadelphia, in which the coal shipments form a most important item. So great is the scarcity of bituminous coal that the Greenwich i'oint piers of the Pennsylvania railroad, which are exclusively devoted to this trade, have had to suspend operations entirely, what little coal there is in transit having been taken by the railroai company for use, in its locomotives. The same state of affairs prevail* at the Port Eichmond piers of the Beading railroad and all the coal destined for the pier of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad has been seized by that company. The result ot this embargo on soft coal is that one of the largest fleets of idle vessels ever seen on the Delaware river now floats at anchor, awaiting the termination of the strike. Orders for coal have been coming in freely from New England points and the West Indic-s but they cannot be tilled. One effect of the strike has been that tha river tugs, which ordinarily use soft coal, have taken the burning pea coal and find it a very good substitute. WANTS A NEW~fRIAL.
