BOY'S DOG KEPT VIGIL Boy Master Was Shot, And He Remained On The Spot. i . Without food for 30 hours, snarling at passers-by and with no thought of reward, a small dog belonging to Walter Strack, 13 years old, 1607 Olive street, who was shot Tuesday by Harry Smith, 13 years old, 1503 Hanover street, was found late- yesterday afternoon guarding a pool of blood from its little master's wounds. When the shooting occurred In the rear of Geise's lumber yard at Brooklyn, Anne Arunuel county, the boy was carried to the office of a nearby physician. The noise of the shot scared the dog. After recovering from Its fright It sought Its master, who was not to be found. By strange Instinct It located the pool of blood and then began its gruesome vigil. Several citizens of Brooklyn noticed the dog and were struck by Its peculiar actions.

After much persuasion the dog followed Mr. Strack home. It was said at the Strack home last night that while the dog had eaten ravenously. It has shown a spirit of unrest and discontent. It has Investigated all the hide-and-seek places In search of little Strack. When one of the Strack boys was asked the breed of the dog he replied it was of no particular breed, but was "only dog."

WITNESSES TELL OF SHRIEKS Two Men Are Supposed To Have Drowned And Mate Has Disap peared. ' The crew of -the oyster pun gy Maid of Erin, from which two oystermea were drowned Sunday night, were arrested yesterday by Patrolman Cotter and given a hearing before Justice Thompson last night at the Canton Police Station. Despite the fact that at least a dozen witnesses testified that they heard cries of "Murder r "Help!" and "For God's sake, don't do that again!" all the members of the crew who were aboard the vessel when the men were drowned stated that they did not hear the cries. As the Canton police were nnahle to get any statement from any of the men that anything like a brawl occurred on the vessel Sunday night, Magistrate Thompson dismissed the men. However, Charles Hansen, the owner of the Maid of Erin, was present at the hearing, and said that he would keep the police in touch with the movements of the vessel, should they want the men again. 1 Gus" Knitter, the mate, who mysteriously disappeared from the puxgy Monday night, after returning to the vessel when released by the police, had not been located up to a late hour last night. Frm the testimony It appears that Knitter was the only man who was on deck with Daniel Cronln, the, man who is said to have been drowned after 10 o'clock, when Knitter said he carried him from the cabin to the deck, where he left him lying near the hatch. The police of Canton and the Eastern district have been on the lookout for him, and search was made for him yesterday and last night along the water front. - -,.'. Said AH Hands Were Drunk. Capt. Andrew Steidle was the first witness called. He said he dropped anchor off the Canton elevator about 5 P. M. Sunday. Supper, he said, was immediately served,- after which he turned In for the night. He also said that all the members of the crew had been drinking heavily from the time they left Federal flats that afternoon, and when anchor was cast all hands were nearly drunk. The other members of the crew were somewhat reticent when questioned by the magistrate. They all said they were drunk and turned Into their bunks about 6 P.M. The cries which persons heard at the Canton elevator and the shore a mile away, they declare, were not heard by any of them. There is only one exception, and that Is Michael Barry. Barry saia1 that he happened on deck after 6 o'clock and heard two faint cries. - He said he ran to the cabin and told Mate Knitter there was a man overboard. The mate, he said, tried to save Patrick Coffey, who, he declared, was drowning.. None of the other men .admitted having any recollection of seeing Cronln after the vessel anchored In Canton. Those who were arrested are Capt. Andrew Steldje, 121 North Rose street ; Cook James Brown, of New York ; Frank Owens, of Covington, Ky. ; Michael Barry and Patrick Keys, of this city, and James O'Brien, of South River, N. J. Heard Cries For Help. The most Important witness at the hearing was Mr. William J. Ahern, a watchman at the elevator. Mr. Ahern said that about 6.30, when he was making his rounds, his attention was suddenly attracted by shouts and cries. "I distinctly heard a voice cry 'Murder !' 'Police !' and 'For God's sake, don't do that again 1 " he testified. "I heard someone shout, 'Shut your mouth, voa ! Th cries and rumpus for it seemed to me there was an altercation somewhere could be plainly heard." The other witnesses testified that they heard the same cries, and Andrew Stenger, who rowed out to the boat, asserts that they lastea ror at least 20 minutes. Mr. Charles W. Clark, one of the witnesses, said that he heard the cries for at least 15 minutes. . He could not understand why the crew could not save tha drowning man while he Moated for this length of time near the schooner. The cries were heard between 6 and 7 v r during which time it is said that Patrick Coffey was drowned. "Gus" Knitter was apparently the only man who saw Cronin after Coffey is said to have drowned. The police are Inclined to entertain the theory that probably Cronln and Coffey got Into an altercation and fell overboard, but no one seems to have seen either one when they fell in the water. Bodies Not Yet Recovered. Until the recovery of the bodies there will probably be no further investigation. Marks of violence on either of the bodies might incite the Canton police to further inquiry, but with the bodies under the water they believe they have no evidence of foul play. The pollceboat Lannan searched several hours for the bodies, but without success. After the hearing the men were placed in a wagon and driven to Canton and put aboard the Maid of Erin. The boat will sail this morning for the oyster beds. FIRST MASS IN ROANOKE Its 25th Anniversary Js Appropriately Celebrated. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Roanoke. Va., Nov. 20. At St. Andrew's Catholic Chnrch yesterday was celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the first mass held , in Roanoke. The chnrch was packed when high mass was celebrated by Father J. W. Lynch, who 25 years ago celebrated the first mass in a passenger coach of the Norfolk and Western Railroad. The sermon was preached by" Bishop P. J Donahue, of Wheeling, W. Va. There was a fine musical program, and the new pipe organ, which cost $4,000, was used for the first time. Bishop Van de Vlver, of Richmond, attended the celebration, and there were a number of priests present Father Jenkins, of Wytheville, was master of ceremonies. In the afternoon, the children of St. Andrew's school celebrated. Brief addresses were made, after which medals commemo-retive of the event were presented to the children. The medals are of aluminium. On one side is a passenger coach, with "First Mass in Roanoke." and on the reverse a representation of the handsome church of today, with "St. Andrew's Church, Roanoke, Va., November 19r1907." At night the adult members 'of the church assembled at St. Andrew's Hall, where a purse was presented to Father Lynch. The growth of the Catholic Church In Roanoke has been remarkable. Twenty-five years ago today Father Lynch, then a young man, who had been a missionary in six coun ties of the valley, came to the village then known as Big Lick. At his first mass in the passenger coach there were only 15 Catholics, and only , one of that number resides in Roanoke today. The next Sabbath the small congregation occupied Rorer Hall, which was the first public hall In Roanoke. As the membership increased a brick church was erected on the site of the present church and was occupied for the first time in 1883. On October 28 of that year It was dedicated by Bishop Keane, of Richmond. The membership grew so rapidly that in 1900 Father Lynch decided that another church should be built. The plans were drawn, and without any building committee Father Lynch employed the late John J. Gary and work was commenced on the beautiful structure of today which cost about $110,000. The cornerstone was laid by Bishop Van de Vyver, of Richmond, on December 2, 1900, and' It was dedicated on November 30, 1902, with the sermon by Bishop Donohue. In addition to the church building the Catholics of Roanoke have erected a large orphanage and school, under the direction of the Sisters of Charity, which has 400 pupils. CAMPBELL ALEXANDER.

They will reside In Denver, Coi-, SPIRIT OF THE PRESS Subjects Under Discussion By The Journals Of The Laud. From Us Neir Tortc Son.J A good deal Is put up to "the people" "the citizens" !n the second letter which President Roosevelt has addressed to Secretary Cortelyoa since the panic, which has already come to be identified with the Administration's name, broke over the country less than a month ago. The first epistle charged the panic up to "a matter of speculation." and the second epistle, no less than the first, saddles the public with the responsibility. Unquestionably it Is very needful that "our citizens" should reallxe the fundamental soundness of business conditions. It Is quite as needful that the Government should realize it, even at this belated date. No doubt the citizens begin now to appreciate "how absurd It Is to permit themselves to get Into a panic," but Is It so absurd, after all, considering their opportunities for Infection from an Administration that has been in a panic about business even before it began to be an administration? If "there Is no particle of risk Involved" for the people "in letting business take its natural course," Is the Government Involved In risk if It does the same thing? There is a good deal in the second letter about the "normal," which we learn from the dictionary is conformity to "established law, older, habit or usage." It does not appear, though, that the Government recognizes that It has In any way deviated from the normal. To h n lotto. appeals "to the public U co-operate with us ux restoring normal Duslness conditions," but the promise that "the Government will see that the people do not suffer", is merely preparatory to exhorting "the people themselves" to "act In' a normal way." It Is not np to the Government; It Is up to the people. "All that our people have to do now is to CO ahead a-irh tltolr a normal fashion, and the whole difficulty disappears, ana tnis end will be achieved at once If each man -will act ma K nnnnoiv does act anJ as the real conditions of the country's s business full warrant his now acting." It Is to be hnnpil anii friorA mamm m Ka every reason to believe, that the remedial . uuauoai measures proposea Dy secretary Cortelyou will be effective In relieving the exce&alvn ahnnntullt, nt nr..Ant hnilncu conditions, but absolution for responsibility ior mem cannot oe sen-conferred by an Admlntaf ration whllh htoft r& hwam. mn administration, asserted that the time had arnvea ior a cnange frojj the normal, the established "tha nld rtitn1 nf Tva S.'oto and the nation toward property," the trans fer or which is all that constitutes Insl-ness. Nor In order to achieve the complete restoration nf normal hnslnou rnniilrlAni Is It needful merely that each citizen act as ne normally aoes act, ir only the uov-ernment Itself will act In a normal way there will le no fault to find with the conduct of the people. As To Eating: With The Knife. I From the Washington Hndd.J The Baltimore Sex. not content with feloniously and maliciously assaulting ths humble, but humane and gentle pumpkin pie, defends the man who eats with his knife to the all but total exclusion of fork, spoon or ladle. Says onr Maryland contemporary : "Eating with the knife harm's no one. It gives the eater courage, a steady hand and a quick eye. It gives the spectator a gentle and salubrious thrill. Only the social purist Is outraged and the . social purist has no rights worth discussing. We admit that we fail to follow the mental gyrations of The Sex when it discusses matters gastronomic ; that is to say. we fail to follow that section of Its make-up exclusive of the Bentztown Bard. Surely, It will find very few In this land willing to fall in behind Its lead in the matter of eating with the knife. Instead of giving the spectator "a gentle and salubrious thrill," as our misguided contemporary avers. It gives, him a distinct shock of such violence that he cannot suppress a shudder. To eat pie, dumplings or mashed potatoes with the knife is bad enough ; to eat green peas, spinach or noodle soup thus is nothing short of barbarous. Even chopsticks beat a knife In such emergencies I Instead of encouraging eatinar with the knife, this Maryland advocate should ad vise the enactment of stern regulations prohibiting It," Something more than "a 'steady hand and a quick eye" is Involved In the gentle art of decorons eating. If dining were a mere matter of packing away food, quickly and dexterously, perhaps Thh Scn's Idea might possess eoms merit worth cot siderlng. - It is not, however, all of dining to eat, nor all of eating to gobble. As clean nay, spotless linen, bright and sparkling glass and silver, or more modest table equipment, as the case may be, are indispensable to the full enjoyment of the meal, so well-bred conventional. If you will, table manners are likewise essential. Ahas the knife eaters ! They spoil even so good a thing as genuine and glorious pumpkin pie which, all will agree. Is as nearly able to stand on Its merits in the face of the most adverse conditions as anything else known to cooks of the right persuasion. , ProUema To Solve. From the New York Times.' It must be kept In mind that, although much of the current distress Is due to the hoarding and hiding of currency, a very considerable reaction from the extreme activity of the country was bound to come, and bound to produce depression when It did come. That process will have to be worked out despite any effort to prevent it. and the measures the Government has taken cannot possibly relieve us from that or greatly defer It. They may lessen Its abnormal and acute operation. They may, as we have said, affect the mind" of individual hoarders. They may relieve the bankers, especially in the Interior, of the sense of obligation to maintain each his own reserve. They may. In various ways, reawaken that general confidence which has been so suddenly broken down. But they will not, because they cannot, dispense the United States from the Ul-effecfcs of a bad system of banking. . Still less can they convert Into quick assets the slow assets resulting from excessive expansion. We shall still have grave problems to solve. The bright side of the situation is that we shall be in a mood to try to solve them practically and sensibly. America's Xew Coaling: Station. From the Philadelphia Press. The first fruit of Secretary Root's visit to Mexico is now visible. This country has acquired a coaling station from onr sister republic which may be used for the next three-years. It Is not at all improbable that at the expiration of that period a permanent station will be established by the United States on the peninsula of Lower California. Precautions of this kind taken In times of profound peace show an alert and far-sighted national policy. To be prepared for any emergency lessens the difficulty of meeting it, no matter how serious It may be. -The nation that is ready for its crises, like the Individual, starts with a tremendous handicap. There Is no menace to any country In this action of America. Just as there Is none In the cruise of the battleship fleet to the Pacific. No country hai any cause to suppose the contrary. This nation's larger world-work was cut out for it in the acquisition of the Philippines, and all we ask Is to be let alone in doing it In true American fashion. Looking To The Future. From the Philadelphia Ledger. The country, barring some cataclysm of which we cannot conceive, has many centuries before it, and its resources must be somehow husbanded for 1hose who follow after us. In a thousand ways what we still possess can be preserved, while what of the earth and the fulness thereof we must take away can be replaced. A tree can be planted for each one that is cut. a field made fertile for each one that is robbed of Its richness. The nation has lived and Is living riotously. If we do not take our situation In hand circumstances will compel It at no distant day. Let this subject be discussed by the Governors and the men whom they select to accompany them to the convention. It is a good use to make of the-States, and If they can be induced to respond to some general Impulses of this kind, they will be fulfilling a more useful part in our governmental scheme that they seem likely to fulfill otherwise.

The doors of the little church were small, and the windows were soon Jammed. From the outside the cry which came from the church was fearfrl, and for some minutes no one . seemed able to act.
