WILL WED Mrs. Frances COACHMAN. « Vouth tc NEW YORK, March 21.—Rarely if ever has there been so much excitement around the court of general sessions building as there was Monday. Carlylc W. Harris, after having exhausted evezy.possible means to escape the penalty of the murder of his wife, was finally re-sentenced by Recorder Smythe. The court room was crowded before 10 o'clock. A dense crowd surrounded the building on all sides. At 0:.'iO Harris left tho Toorabs shackled to Deputy Sheriff Brown. Deputy Sheriff Burke followed closely. Arriving at the court, Harris sat down ^n u remote corner closely guarded by the deputy sheriffs. At 10 o'clock Recorder Smythe took the bench aud called Harris to the bar. Harris arose '-with a start and walked unsteadily through the rows of spectators to the rail. District Attorney Nie'oll, in a low voice, made the usual motion that the sentence be passed. There wassiicnce for a moment, when the district attorney sat down. . : Then the recorder sahl: "Carlyle W. Hurris, have you anything to sily why the sentenc^_of_.the_c(3iu-t_ghonl(l not be priSIsod \ipoh you?"" Iiarris leanedi both hands on tho rail, bent forward and began to speak in tones so inaudible that the deputies who stood close by him could not hear ..what ho said and leaned their heads to catch the words. Although the spectators kept absolutely, silent aud craned their necks to hcar-no-ouo could catch a syllable'df what the'prisoner was saying.' Mrs. Harris, Carlyle's mother, was not to be seen.. It_was said..thit she had been persuaded 'to stay away by Karris himself;-who feared the scene would-be too much for her. Among the spectators was Mr. Potts, the father of the girl whom- Harris married and murdered. Harris was evidently very weak. He swayed Ths East Sldt of Main Strttt' Wiped Out.

After the first ten minutes ho grew stronger and his voice could be heard by those in' his immediate vicinity. The spectators could only gather that Harris was speaking of the aflidavits which were presentee] by the defense on tho motion for a new triul. The first timo that Harris' accents rang out clear and strong was when he spoke of Dilworth Choate. With a suddenness that alartled everyone, came tho words: "There is one man for whom I have been looking around this court room and I do not .see him. lie is Dilworth Choate. D'il worth Choate!" He repeated the name with such intense scorn and bitterness that a shudder ran around the court room "Dilworth Choate," continued Harris "Dilworth Choate, and perjurer newspaper outcast— the district attorney's tool." 1 1 HIT'S devoted considerable attention to Assistant District Attorney \Vellman, who was prosecutor in the first trial. While he was talking Wollnuin, who had been sitting along- H'KJO Mr. Nicoll, arose and abruptly left the court room. "He had better have gone before," remarked Harris. A most affecting scene occurred whim Han-is turned to Mr. Howe rind in broken accents said: "Mr. Howe,' I let you know what a poor man I am; that I cannot repay your devotion. I want you to take this my dearest possession and keep it ever." As he spoke, Harris drew an envelope from his pocket and handed it to .Mr. Howe, with these words: "Take it, Mr. Howe; it was Helen's last gift to me. Take it, with her love." As ho turned away to face the recorder again Harris sobbed twice convulsively, and the tears ran down his checks. ....... After -addressing 1 a few impressive words to the recorder, Harria finished the remarkable speech by turn- Ing again to Mr. Ho we and handing him eo:iie letters. Harris had spoken for an hour and forty minutes/ The recorder then proceeded to review tho facts of the case briefly. He spoke particularly of the application for a new trial and said ho had given the application his consideration with a very full sense of the responsibility that a human life depended upon his decision. Twice Harris interrupted the recorder to apeak of points iu the case that he had forgotten before. The recorder heard him patiently. "You are not here, to have the sentence of death pronounced upon you," said the recorder, "that has already been done. The previous sentence lias merely to bo re-affirmed and a date fixed. The order of tho court is that the previous sentence be carried! out during the week beginning May 5.^ Harris made no sign as he heard the date of his death. The envelope which Harris handed to Mr. Howe, saying it contained Helen s last gift to him, had in it a pair of gold link cuff buttons.

Twc- A British Steamer Reports Seeing Drifting; Ufa Boats. BKEME.V, March 21.—After long continued anxiety regarding the White Star- lino freight steamer Naronic, which sailed from Liverpool February 11 for New York, and which has not since been heard of, intelligence has been received showing beyond any doubt that the vessel is lost. The British steamer Coventry, Captain Wilson, from Fcrnandina, February 10, arrived at this place t day. She reports that at 2 o'clock in tho morning, on March •}, when in latitude 42 north, longitude (M west, she passed a life boat, painted white, bearing the name Naronic. Tho boat was floating-kecJ .upward.. At S o'clock in the afternoon of the same day another life boat from the Naronic was passed. This boat gave evidence of having- encountered heavy -weather. The mnst and oars of the life boat had been lashed together. and attached to the painter and then thrown overboard as a sea anchor to keep thu boat's head up to the wind. Judging from appearances neither of the boats had been long adrift. Tho position of the drifting boats was south by west of Sable island, on tho banks of Newfoundland. There is a chance that the occupants of the boats were picked up by a passing vessel. -Officials of the White Star lino company here have received the full report of the steamer Coventry, vrhicj^arrivcd at Bremen today. They stntc their advices show that the lose life boat of the Naronic passed by the Coventry was recently occupied by a portion o'f the Naronic's crew and they expressed the hope,.that the occupants--had been picked up by a passing vessel. Tlmy also express the hope that the occupants of the other boats have been rescued. All doubt as to the fate of the Naronic has been dispelled .by the sighting of the life boats. That she is now at the bottom of the ocean cannot be disputed, but the cause of the disaster is of course stili a matter of conjecture. It may be, judging from the latitude and longitude in which tho boats were seen, sho might have s_truclc a derelict or an iceberg, though it is still rather early in the season for the ice to be adrift so far south as the banks. It is hoped that the mystery of the loss of the steamer will soon bo cleared up by the landing at some port of members" of her crew. A vessel which passed Deal today signalled that she had on board' eleven shipwrecked people, and tho White Star officials say that there is a strong prob.abUity. that.they_arc part of. the crew of the Naronic. The arrival of _ this vessel is awaited,. as should tho shipwrecked persons on board be from ;he Naronic a'll conjecture as to tho causes that led to the foundering of tho steamer will be removed. band, created talk from one end of the country to the other. The man-she will many, though oriprinally named Peter Surrette, Jhas. become, 'through Mra; Hillier's wishes and tho probate court's act, Henry Hiliier, as was her first husband. The groom is only 20, and his bride will have him fitted by a tutor for Harvard soon after the honeymoon. Mrs. Hillier in her everyday life has over. 510,000 worth of gems on her fingers, and on this occasion she will bo'-litorally covered with diamonds and other g-ems, including- a diamond necklace, tiara earring-s, diamond bracelets and a waist belt of the same. Mrs. Uillier is worth £500,000 and 'her wealth is rapidly increasing. Surrette wore overalls when he came from New Brunswick four years ago. He was a woodehopper and after struggling- around on odd jobs was given -a position on the" Hillier esta-te. His idea of the Eng-.ish language ia very vague and a year agpjast summer he went Sundays to a blacksmith shop and learned his letters of the proprietor. In speaking- of Peter's proposal, Mrs. Hiller said: "I was thunderstruck at first, but the subject attracted my attention .anil I said, —Why—notH—He-is-honestf -loyalj-obcdi-- en£ and loving-. I remembered how some of the greatest men of our time came from the meek and lowly, and began to make inquiries. Father Ryan consulted Peter and told mo that Peter did not love my money, but me. I then found out that he came from a very good family, and would be a good man to look out for my property." A MONSTER ARM OR PRESS. Tho Cani3gi3 Company Will Lead ~tho World.

It is claimed that the machinery^- will g-ive the Cur- negie ^company advantages over the world in the manufacture of war fixtures.
