Sir Thomas was Injured and One Man was Drowned. Weymouth, Eng.,, April 17. I raise, the sails this morning Shamrock III was struck by a squall and everything above deck, masts, sails and rigging, was carried away. ""Sir Thomas Lipton was badly bruised and had a narrow escape. One person is reported drowned and several wee injured. The man carried overboard and drowned was named Collier, a brother in law of Cafain Wringe. As the mast fell overboard, carrying all the gear and canvas, several persons were hurt Including Sir Thomas, who was knocked down the hatchway, bruised and otherwise injured. Collier was handing a binocular to Lifton when swept overboard. One of Lipton'a hands was injured but not seriously. A strong, northeast breeze was Wowing but not a gale. Both Sham rocks seemed to be carrying sail well when nearly a mile off shore Shamrock III went on the starboard tack when a sudden gust of .wind sweeping out of the Bay struck the yacht completely dismantling her. The steel mast crumpled up like a paper tube. It seemed miraculous that more were not carried overboard, as ANNOYING CITIZENS. They Live In Ecuador and Claim Protec. tion of This Country. "Washington, D. C, April 17 An-interesting point has been brought before the State Department by Minister Sampson, the United States representative in Ecuador. He has found a number of naturalized citizens of the United States living permanently in Ecuador who have no intention of returning to the United States, yet who c aim the commercial advantages and protection of the American flag. This is something that has given annoyancee to United States ministers and consuls at may other places, but for which there appears to be no remedy. Minister Sampson tells of one naturalized subject who has resided for over forty years in the land of his nativity, without even visiting the United istates, and who cannot speak a word of English, "Such persons," he says, make it a religious duty to sign the register of American citizens in the United States legation or consulate each succeeding two years, and profess great admiration for the Starr and Stripes and sigh for the day to come speedily when thy can once more be 'at home in the best country in the world.' Many of these persons are engaged in commercial pursuits here, and some of them do not carry even a dollar's worth of United States products. A citizen of Porto Rico was in Ecuador holding a regularly issued Spanish passport when Porto Rico became a part of the United States, He at once professed great admiration for the United States and declared he would hence-fort! be a citizen of the United States. Next he applied for registration as such, and asked for a passport." The State Department holds that every citizen of the United States traveling abroad in pursuit of his lawful business is entitled to a pass port, the duration of such sojourn being something which the depart ment does not attempt to limit.

Barges were despatched to raise the spar after which the yacht will be taken to her mooring inside the breakwater. When ' Sir Thomas was thrown down the hatchway he fell with such force as to break the board flooring. Bristol, R. I., April 17. The fitting of Reliance's rigging Is being pushed faster than ever.

Damage Case juror Ingleston Denies Patch Company the Rutland, J prll 17. The F. R. Patch Manufacturing company, the plaintiff in the case against the machinists' union, has filed counter affidavits in reply to those presented by the defendants in connection with their motion for a new trial on the ground that" Lyman Ingleston of Castleton, one of the jurors, talked about the cas; and predicted two weeks before the close of the trial that the Patch company would win. The affidavits for the pliintifT are signed by Lyman Ingleston, J. E.Edgerton, C, J. Waters and I. E. McDonald, jurors, Marville C. Webber, attorney for the plaintiff, and Da Watson of Castleton., Lyman Ingleston, the juror who is alleged to have pi.b'iely expressed his opinion in regard to the case in Carl Beach's store at Castleton on Saturday afternoon, March 1, says In his affidavit that he was not In the store on the Saturday evening in question, but that he was there the night previous, and that he did discuss the case which was then being heard. He talked about the missing books but denies that he said the Patch company was sure to win. He says that Carl Beach, who signed one of the defendants' affidavits, expressed the hope that Patch would win. He states that while the case was being considered by the jury he voted for the defendants j Mrs- Burgess, Mrs. Lancaster and J Mis Harris, a handsome floral cross from Hie pastor and congregation or St. Augustine's church, a cross of roses and carnations from the Sisters of Mercy, a wreath of galax leaves and roses from the trustees of Wood Art gallery and other flowers from this city. The officiating clergymen at the obsequies were Rev. W. J. O'Sulll-van pastor of St. Augustine's church, and Rev. Norman Seayer former pastor of "Bethany church." Fr. O'Sullivan made a few remarks on the life, character and work of the deceased. Mr. Wood during his life time had been very kind to the St. Augustine church having given that church the two beautiful pictures which now hang in its new edifice on Barre street. The bearers were the trustees of the art gallery M. E. Smilie, Dr. A. B. Bisbee, John V, Brooks, Charles II. More, W. E. Adams and II. J. M. Jones. The funeral was in charge of L. Bart Cross, vice president of the association, and Col. O, I). Clark, secretary and treasurer. The funeral was largely attended, Wilder's string quintette furnishing the music during the exercise's. Rev, Norman Seaver read the Episcopal service. Rev. W. J, O'Sullivan said In part j "We are assembled here to pay our respect, esteem, admiration veneration, gratitude and love to the memory of one who merited in a measure and degree beyond tl.e power of word's to express to those who today surround his bier. Be cause Thomas Waterman Wood was A NEW TRIAL at Rutland- Having Said that the was Sure to Win Case. and was one of three men who were in favor of finding a verdict for them. ' The affidavit or Charles Waters, the foreman of the jury, bears out Ingleston's statement as to what occurred in the jury room. He also gives, in detail the result of each ballot which was taken. The affidavits of J. E. Edgerton and I. E. McDonald, both of whom were on the jury, corroborated the statemeut of Mr. Waters. Maivelle C. Webber swears that he went to Castleton to investigate the case on the 7th and that he talked with Roy Smith, but could get no information. Smith told him that he had not signed any affidavit, but Mr. Webber states that 15 minutes later he was informed by T. II. Browne, one of tlfe defendants' attorneys, that he had obtained Smith's af!ldvit. Ira Randall swears that he heard the rumor in Castleton on March 26 that Juror Ingleston had been pub licly discussing the case at issue, and he immediately informed P. F. McManus, one of the defendants' attorneys. Mr. McManus requested him to investigate the rumor and he attempted to get at the facts but without success. It Is expected that the hearing on the motion for a new trial will be held Saturday morning. one of nature's noblemen, one whose life work has been and will continue to be a credit to bis home, a distinction and a beneficence to one and all. It was not perhaps for me to know him intimately but still it required only a social intercourse to see and know all the simplicity and ability of the man. "Like a host of others In his youth he went out from the Green Mountain state to seen fields of larger opportunities, greater scope and more powerful incentiveness for the gifts which the divine artist had bestowed on him. Fashioned by the creator's hand upon magnificent physical lines he was a magnificent type of the children of- Vermont. The success with whicn he applied himself in the field which he had chosen and his career is known to all. He has held the-highest positions in his noble profession, and he returned to his maker the fruits of his talents. " ne had visited the galleries of Europe in search of art and there he produced a work called by Leo 111 The greatest work of Its kind thai ever went forth from the walls of the Vatican.' He has now gcnJ to his long rest full of days, full of. renown transmitting a name untarnished a name beloved. As pastor of St. Augustine let my prayer be, God bless the man, and memory of the man, Thomas W. Wood, God reward him, God rest him, that his memory may remain as. fresh in our minds as the verdure in the summer time on our hillsides." Dr. Seaver followed Fr. O'Sullivan referring touchingly to Mr. Wood's career and delivering a beautiful eulogy of the deceased. WARM AND INSPIRING, The adjourned ciy meeting at Barre last evening was largely attended and was toward the wind up a warm and inspiring occasion. The license commissioners were the topic of discussion at thctime alluded to and some pointed remarks were made. John W. Gordon defended the commissioners against whom the principal speakers were John Anderson and Philip Halvosa. The former called attention to alleged illegality in granting the licenses, and the latter sprang a sensation by calling attention to the section of tbe law which says that if a commission neglects bis duty bis office shall be declared vacant. He said that one commissioner had left the city immediately after his appointment and had not returned until after the licenses bad been granted. A tax of 2o cents was voted to erect a school house, the house to cost 130,000 and the land about tlo,-000. A 10 cent tax was also voted to purchase a book and ladder truck and other equipments for the fire department. There are about 114.500 telegraph offices throughout tbe etTiiized.worid. GUN WAD SAVED LIFE. Lodged in a Wound .and Stopped the Flow of Blood. nouston, Tex., April 17. Will A. Powers lies at the St. Joseph Hospital on a bed of pain, but is thanking his lucky star that he is ye) among the living. The accidental discharge of a shotgun placed his life In the balance and but for his good foitune he would certainly not be battling for his recovery. Powers accompanied by his brother-in-Jaw, H. H. Kuhlman, left tlje city for a drive through the country and to take a try at the birds. As they neared Missouri City the catastrophe occurred. Powers tad his gun resting against his knee and picked it up with the muzzle pointing toward him, and started to climb out of the buggy. In some manner the gun slipped and the trigger struck on the step ot the vehicle and the gun was discharged. 1 he entire contents of the shell lodged in the right side of the young man's neck and blood flowed in streams from the ugly wound. Kulmahn gathered the young man into the buggy and the horse was sent racing into Missouri City, where the services of Dr. Tucker were obtained and all that it was possible to do to relieve the injured man was done. The accident happened at 10 o'clock and at 5.45 Powers was brought to Houston on the train and Immediately conveyed to the hospi tal, where Drs. Lillard and Hamilton were called to dress the wound. It was found that the gun wads. as well as a quantity of cloth from the man's clothing, had been forced into the great hole in his neck. I The interior jugular vein had been punctured, and several shots were taiten from the inside of the vein. All that had prevented the young man from bleeding to death was the fact that the gun wads had lodged in tht punctures tud bad stopped the flow of blood. As soon as this was removed the surgeons had great difficulty in cloisng the wound, and had an effort been made to do so before the man reached the hopsital operating table it is stated by the doctors that he would certainly have bled to death, " " t While the. call as a very close one, the physicians do not anticipate any serious result unless blood poisoning should result from the foreign substance that was so long in the wound. DEER CAUGHT IN A FENCE. Dogs Gnawed its Haunches and Toie Flesh From the Bone. Sayvillo, L.-L, April 17. -Workmen on W. K: VanderbiU's Idle Hour estate beheld a pitiful sight A couple of tiamp dogs had chased a deer out nt th Smith Side Sportsmen's Club ground, and thej aeer aas running for the Idle Hour enclosure, within which the animals have learned they find refuge and protectlou.

When the ('lover Leaf passenger train pulled into this city at midnight, a handsomely dressed young man and woman alighted, handcuffed together. As no policeman was with them, they caused considerable comment as they wandered about the platform with their wrists locked together. m They were Mr. and Mrs. Edward Campbell, of Marion, who had just been married, and who were handcuffed before leaving home by a crowd of jokers. The key had been turned over to the brakernan on the train with directions to unlock the handcuffs after Kokomo was passed, but some one called for the key, and then ran away with it, leaving the couple with no means of release. They had all sorts of troubles on their way here, but" after they bad wandered about the station for a short time, a railroad man got a file and a chisel and succeeded In cutting the chain between the two handcuffs. Half an hour later they got a policeman to unlock the cuffs and free their wrists. Before her marriage Mrs. Campbell was Miss Sarah H ightower. - At the station in Marion a regular battle followed the attempt to handcuff the couple, as the bridegroom had received a "tip" and had marshalled a crowd of defenders. After handcuffing the couple and putting them on the train, the crowd distributed handbills through the train stating that "Sallie and Ed" had just been married and asking the passengers to look out for them.
