Fed to Him in Lumps of Bran, He It Dead in Twelve Minutes from Receiving the Fatal Do^o. TIP TUHNS Ul> IIIS TOE8. f. NEW YORK, May 11.—Tip, ffie big elephant in the Central Park menagerie, died Friday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock after many h&urs of afrony. From.« a, in. until 4 p. m. tlio great king 1 of the forest went shuddering from one convulsion into another under the influence of the cyanid« of potassium which had been given him. The llrat dose of the poison was not sufficient to put a quick and painless end to his life. After many consultations between Superintendent Smith, of the menagerie, and Superintendent Hunkinson, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and Secretary Burns, it was resolved at S o'clock to administer another dose of the poison. The second dose finally proved effective. The l>eadly Doin. At that hour fifteen capsules of cyanide of potassium were given to Tip in a di»h of bran. The great beast went Into convulsions and thrashed about at a tremendous rate. In his wild struggles he broke the chains which con&ned him. The attendants seemed to be panic-stricken. Tip was loose In hie pen and their lives were in danger. Two men were immediately sent for guns with which to shoot Tip if it became necessary. It was feared that Tip might break out of his pen. Theii services were not required, however, for the huge beast's struggles quickly ended, and as the poison began to work he fell to the ground and died. The Death Scene. It was just twelve minutes from the time that Tip ate the lout morsel that he was pronounced dead. Five minutes before he died he "weaved" violently. He swung his trunk and he belched as if he wanted to vomit. He writhed as much as a monster of his size could writhe with pain. He revealed n strength such as re had never be-, fore—a rage, compared with which hia wildest bursts had, b«en but trifles. In his.' paroxysm he whirled about the limits of his cage, reared his great body against the heavy timbers and charged upon them with his blunted tusks. He raised his trunk high into the air and trumpeted in his apooy. From bis mouth he spouted big drops of blood, and then, gathering himseli with all his might, ho made oue dash toward the rear of his pen and fell dead. It was u violent scene and groat-, ly frightened the keepers. In his rage Tip must have bitten his tongue, Mr. Wallace said, and that accounted fet the blood. His hide and skeleton will go to Dr. William" Wallace, to be placed alongside Jumbo in the Museum of Natural History; his viscera will go to Dr. Shuttington, for the Collogu of Physicians and Surgeons, and his eyes to the Kye and Ear infirmary. lie Wai it Man Killer. Following is a record of "Tip's" careei and misdeeds: He was purchased by Adam Foropnugl), Jr., in 1883, and during Ib8 Hrut year !io wus exhibited succeeded In killing one man and maiming two others. In IBB year 1884 lie killed two men, both of whom were employed in keepers. His vlclouanoas was wmla manifest In tho yoar.liiSS, when he killed throe kcepura (two at ono time) and a boy. In the winter of I8HS Mr. Forcpuuph, ovl. dcuvly thtttUlnK him too exponnlve ft bruto tc longer maintain, presumed him to iho menagerie. Shortly after lib arrival at tlio monaifO' rlo (In May, 1S(W,) ho severely injured Keepers Holmes und jMaron, who weru attempting to clean the stall In which ho van confined. On March 17, 1801, he turned on Keeper Snydcr, who was busy ID the stall with him, and Injured him so severely that ha was confined to bis bod for some weeks. On Fob' ruary 18, 181)2, he broke both of the chains bj which he WM fastened, tore out two of the partition* in the bulldlne and very nearly made hii escape. On the 80th ult Keeper Snydor entered nil cage for the purpose of placing a chain on the hind foot; h« had no sooner entered when Tip chirked on him and pinned him against th» partition of the cage with his tusks. Fortunately for the keeper the elephant had his martin- Kale on and could not use hli head to advantage. Had hla head beon free the charge would have been fatal. At the tune of his death Tip was secured by onaot.sln only (that on the forefoot) and would not allow either Snydor or any ono else to approach. The park commlasiononi feared ha would break thU and wreck the bulxd- Ing. Formal charges were Drat mada against Tip about two weeks ago. Snydor, the keeper, wits his aoomer. Snyder said he wa« ktrald to go Into Tip's cage for fesr the big elephant might kill him. - quantity here. The price is nominally 84, but vessels have hard work to get enough at that figure to carry them to Cleveland. RESERVE IN DANGER. Administration Uneaar Over tha Drain of Gold tu Kuropa. NKW YOBK, May IS.—The. export of 12,000,000 gold during the day loaves the United States treasury with a little over 880,000,000 of the royal metal on hand, and if the predictions of financiers count for anything that sum will be dwindled to a startling minimum before the summer is over. During the last week 16,000,000 has been shipped to Europe to provide for the lack of bills of exchange. This sum exceeded the expectations of prominent foreign bankers by $3,000,000 and led to some puneasiness in certain quarters The continued drain this week has made some of the administration officials very uneasy as to the outlook for the future. It has also agitated some New York financiers to the extent of avowing that another bond issue will be necessary within a few weeks to protect the gold reserve, already being decreased every time a steamship sails for Europe. The demand for United States gold seems to be general throughout Europe, according to export brokers, and it is expected by them to continue for some time, per- perhaps all summer. In some quarters the prediction is made that the gold reserve will tumble to »00,000,000, and perhaps to »so,ooo,00u. BEOKE CAMP.
