He had a class which met in,WlS3uer's Hall and gave annual con - ... certs of unusual, quality. As a composer he r "was better known almost than as a teacher. At the Fulton street ofilce of Mr. Held, who T published his compositions, the news of Mr. T Marcy's death was a great shock.. Mr. Held T was quite overcome and the clerks, - - who knew - '. tbe,; - man - well, immediately left off what they i - Were doing to learn the particulars. - "Why'," said Mr. Held, "I thought he was in the best' of health. Only on Friday he was here, playing the piano and humming a few Z bars of a new piece he had composed. He waB the last man I - would have expected to - - "hear of dying. Some of his pieces that had t - the best run with me were "Bunch of Golden Rod,'' 'Gypsy Maiden Wild and Free,' w'llch j were favorite ballads, and in the instrumental music the "Cupid Gavotte,' 'Lenox Galop,' ', Telephone Hello Galop,' 'Criterion' and i 'Grand Military March' and several high class concert pieces showed that he was a man of - ' talent." - Ifcr.

Mr. Hatotn says that - ; - when he returned late that night everything - ' - seemed quiet in Mr. Marcy's room and this - " morjiing be did not go to his room as he - liked to sleep late. Finally he thought be ' would wake him and opened the door. Mr. " Marcy was lying on the bed. He had disrobed, evidently wiUh the intention of taking '. a bath, as the tub was half full of water. The attack of sickness must have come upon - him Suddenly, as his pasture indicated that be had fallen upon the bed. Mr. Hatton says he ate a cucumber and other indigestible food before he went to bed and he thinks ls resulted In either attacking his heart or causing apoplexy.

Mr. Marcy was born In Rlverhead ahout forty years ago and was well known ; .there. - Mr. Marcy had considerable fame on the concert stage, both as a singer and pianist.

His father was a state senator and he is well connected on both sides of his family, it is said that Mr. Marcy had domestic :. troubles which were responsible for fits' or despondency.

I Di.ity or bank directors ana their right to ' declare dividends when there is no surplus funds for such purpose. The case is an : appeal from an affirmed Judgment given by the Second Appellate Division for the de - ; fendnnt, in the suit brought by William N. j Dykman, as receiver of the Commercial ! Bank, Brooklyn, against Seth L. Keeney and others, directors of trip h i amount of a dividend declared by them five years ago, which the plaintiff alleged was not made from the surplus profits arising from the buslDess of the corporation. Among promissory notes which the directors treated as part of the assets of the bank were notes made by various parties and discounted for the benefit of the indorser, Gilbert Hassell, wiimn tne previous year. The avails of these notes were applied upon notes discounted by the bank for the benefit of the Indorser, one Knowlton, which the latter had given in re - renewal of notes made by various parties and which had been discounted for his benefit, as ; indorser in 1889, the bank surrendering the ! notes Indorsed by Knowlton to Hassell and j marking Knowlton's account "Paid." !

MRS. BISHOfTsTATEMENT. She Threatens to Sue Colonel Danforth. Acted as a Friend to Miss Simonie. Mrs. Gertrude Bishop, who, in a story published In a morning paper, is accused of haying committed Miss Marie Simonie, a young actress, to the insane ward of Bellevue Hospital In New York, when seen by an Eagle reporter this morning was quite Indignant at the position she has been placed in, while trying, as she claims, to do a friendly act. She says that she is determined to have the story retracted, otherwise she threatens to bring a suit against Elliot F. Danforth, whom she holds responsible for its publication. She wants the latter to write a personal letter exonerating her from acting in any way but as a friend to Miss Simonie. The fact that Miss Simonie was confined in the insane ward came to light through a letter written by Superintendent Murphy of Bellevue Hospital to Mr. Danforth, informing him that there was a young woman confined there who claimed him as a relative. Miss Simonie, so it is said, stated that while she was 111 Mrs. Bishop and a man named Dan Degge invited her out for a walk and took her to the hospital. She claims that she strenuously remonstrated with them against entering the building, but was forcibly taken In and placed in the insane ward. Mrs. Bishop was very much agitated over the story when seen by the reporter at Escott's Hotel, Coney Island, where sho is stopping temporarily with her husband, who, she says, is a newspaper artist. Mrs. Bishop, who Is 26 years old, gave the following account of the case as far as she was concerned: "I met Miss Simonie four weeks ago last Sunday on a train coming from Chicago. She had in her possession a lettor from Dr. Swltz - er, a prominent physician of Chicago, to Elliott F. Danforth. The letter was a kind of recommendation and said that Miss Simonie was a soprano singer and was coming East to secure a place In some opera company. Miss Simonie said that she was the daughter of John Simonie, a well to do resident of Cedar Rapids, Neb. "Colonel Danforth took an Interest in her and my husband and I took apartments with her at 247 West Twenty - fourth street, New York. My husband failed to get the position he expected and we were obliged to come to Coney Island to live, where my husband secured employment at Escott's Hotel as pianist. Last Friday afternoon I received a telegram requesting me to call at the West Twenty - fourth street. houEe as Miss Simonie was sick. I went there at once and found her sleeping. She had been raving In the afternoon, so I thought best not to disturb her and came back to Coney Island. The next day I went to New York again and found her very 111, physically and mentally. "I told her that she had better let r.ie take hc - r to a hospital, where she could be treated, and in (he meantime I would send a telegram to her father for money. She was out of her mind 3nd c - ;uld not understand me and Imagined that she had been married to a man named James Dan Degge, the porter at the house. She said sho couldn't leave the. house with anybody but him. So I waited tnere until 9:30 o'clock at night and Mr. Degge and I went with her to Bellevue. The receiving physician saw at once ifcat she was out of her mind and Immediately took her in." WILLING TO LIVE WITH HISWIFE In the Lee Avenue Police Court this morning Mrs Kate Cathakis, a pretty Greek woman, who lives with her 14 year old daughter at 1S9 Stockton street, preferred a charge of abandonment against her husband Michael. Cathakis, who Is employed In Greenfield's candy fae - tory on Gwinnett street, said In his own defense that he was perfectly willing to live with his wife, but that she declined to share his home. Mrs. Cathakis is a singer of some ability and her husband is said to have provided the money for her musical education as well as for that of her stepdaughter, Mrs. Cathakis having been previously married. The husband has been in court before on a similar charge. Justice Lemon adjourned the case for a hearing later. TO EXAMINE'.

Rival Trading Stamp Concerns Will Contest the Right to Do Business Under an Old Scheme Recently Rb - vived Defendants Say the Suit Is Brought Simply to Forestall the Legal Proceedings They Had in Mind. Jaqob Brodie, the manager of a trading stamp company, of 65S Fulton street, has brought suit in the United States District Court against Sperry & Hutchinson, of Pearl street and Broadway, New York, In. which he demands judgment for $100,009 on the ground that' Sperry & Hutchinson have violated provisions of section 4,963 of the revised statutes of the United States. The plaintiff and the defendants are both engaged in the trading stamp book business in Brooklyn. Sperry & Hutchinson claim that the trade stamp book scheme is protected by separate copyrights and they announce that all rights are reserved and that infringers will be prosecuted. Brodie. on the other hand, alleges that a patent has never been issued on the trading books and that Sperry & Hutchinson violate the United States law "when they state in the books thai they have a patent on the same. It is on this point that Brodie bases his suit. The trading stamp book scheme is an old one and it Is now worked in a great many American cities. The way It is operated is simple. The names of the merchants engaged in the different lines of business are printed in the books and they are freely distributed about the city. It Is explained that if the merchants named are patronized Co the extent of $99, enough stamps will be Issued to fill the stamp book and then the holder of the book will be entitled to any one of a number of premiums worth, according to the promoters of the scheme between $8 and $15. Right here it might be stated that stamps enough to fill a book are sold to the merchants for $4.95. Brodie, in the papers filed in the United States District Court yesterday, says that inasmuch as the defendants have violated the United States law, they are, therefore, indebted to him to the amount of $100 upon each book issued, one - half thereof to the plaintiff and one - half thereof to the use of tho United States. Luke D. Stapleton of 26 Court street and W. C. Donn of 261 Broadway, New York, have been retained as attorneys for the plaintiff. Jacob Brodie, when seen this morning, was very anxious to discuss the case. He said he had brought the suit In order to protect bis business. "I have expended $20,000 in this scheme," said he, "and I do not Intend to allow Sperry and Hutchinson to freeze mo out. I began business in this city several weeks ago and since that time I have learned that representatives of Sperry and Hutchinson have been calling on my customers and explaining that any one who dealt with me was liable to be prosecuted by the United States courts. "These representatives stated,, so I am told, that Sperry and Hutchinson had had the stamping books copyrighted and that I had no right to operate the soheme. I have made an Investigation and I have discovered that Sperry and Hutchinson have never secured the copyright which they, claim. It Is true they have applied for a - copyrlght. but it has never been granted. So have I applied for a copyright, but that does not entitle me to state that I have one."' ' Mr. Sperry of Sperry & Hutchinson, when Interviewed by an Eagle reporter this afternoon, said that he was not at all alarmed 3.t Brodie's suit. "This man Brodie is looking for a free advertisement in the newspapers," said Mr. Sperry. "and that is one of the reasons why he has brought this suit. The other reason is that he recently learned that wo were about to sue him for unfair competition and he resolved to get in ahead of us. While it Is true that we have not secured an actual copyright, we are entitled to state that our books are copyrighted, as we have filed a request for such a privilege In Washington. "Brodie has stolen all our ideas and he has copied many books and much of our printed matter word for word. We do a legitimate busiuess and have forty - two stores in different parts of the country. Why, only last week Brodie came into our ofilce and representing himself as John Brown said that he would like to establish a branch agency. He waB simply looking for pointers and as I suspected him he didn't secure very much information. I understand that Brodie has been in trouble in Brooklyn and that the people over there understand him very well. No, we do not fear the suit." Jacob Brodlo in 1895 ran what he called the Systematic Collection Agency. He had an office on the top floor of the Arbuckle Building and it was claimed that he sent out annoying letters. On May 10 of that year he was indicted by the grand Jury on the complaint of one Hugh Coleman. Coleman said in court that he had received a letter from Brodie, on which was printed "Doubtful or Dead Beats." Mr. Brodie, in speaking this afternoon'ln regard to bis Indictment in 1895, said he didn't know what had become of the case. He said It was all a matter of spite. YS, BENHAM'S BEHALF. His La - wyer, Maofcay, Trying to Discredit the Testimony of tho Prosecution in the Murder Case. Batavia, N. Y., July 27 Mr. Mackay resumed his address to the Jury in behalf of Benham. at 9:30 this morning. He was hoarse and spoke with considerable difficulty. All the way through Mr. Mackay's address it has been his purpose to throw doubt upon every point established by the prosecution. No effort has been made by Mr. Mackay actually to establish Benham's Innocence, but to throw doubt upon his guilt. That is the plan of the defense. Mr. Mackay first took up the autopsies. No suspicion, he said, rested upon Benham at the first autopsy. No one pointed the finger of suspicion at him until Drug Clerk Elliott told his snory. But at no time did Beuham oppose anything that would lead to a most thorough investigation. If Benham was a guilty man, why did he not have his wife's body cremated? It would have been an easy thing. Mr. Mackay went over the medical testimony, pointing out the contradictory features of the people's testimony. The men who made the first autopsy, he said, did not know whether the heart was full or empty. It was the most bungling job ever confessed by men who claimed to be licensed physicians. Dr. Townsend's story about the odor he smelled at the second autopsy wa3 ridiculous. Why did not the other doctors smell it? Why was it not discovered on the first autopsy? One of the women also got a smell like crushed cherry pits. "How did she know about the smell of crushed cherry pits? How many of you gentlemen ever got the odor of cracked cherry pits?"

THERE ARE TWO HUNCKERS, Hence the Lamentable Mistake of a Deputy Sheriff WHO SEIZED THE WRONG ONE. A Broadway Grooer Who Was Much Surprised by the Appearance in" His Store of an Officer of the Law. The Other Grocer, Huncker, Lived in a Far Away Part of the City. There were lively times in Christian Hun - eken's grocery store at the corner of .Broadway and Grove street yesterday, due to a case of mistaken Identity. It must be understood that there - are two Christian Hun - ckens doing buslnesss in Brooklyn, for had there been but one, mistaken identity could have played no part In the case. It was a writ in the hands of a sherlff'8 deputy that caused all the trouble. Mr. Huncken, who Is an elderly German and one of tho longest established grocers in the city, was waiting upon a steady stream of morning customers, when a man hurried in from the street and confronted him. "Huncken?" said he. "Yes," replied the grocer, not having the remotest suspicion of what was coming. "Christian Huncken?" "That's my name." "Right. I've got a judgment" against you. Here's the paper, and I've come to take possession of the place, horse, wagon and all." The customers stopped buying and the clerks ceased wovk. Mr. Huncken stopped, too. Wh?n the shock of surprise had temporarily subsided, he asked to see the warrant. It was legally prepared, and the name. Christian Huncken, written plainly across tis face. The address, however, had been added in pencil. Tho contents of the writ showed It to be an execution of judgment by Eliza Lankenau. "You'll be given two hours to get ready," Bald the deputy, and he turned to go. "But," began the grocer, "I don't know anything about this; I never heard of Eliza what's - her - name; I never " "Neither did I," Interrupted the deputy. "If you don't know now you - will pretty quick. My business is to serve the paper, and you've got It." Arguments were of no avail. Mr. Huncken and his son, who - were rapidly getting mad, would have preferred to show their visitor ,to the gutter in a forcible manner, but the latter's legal authority protected him. On leaving the deputy warned the grocer that the force of the law would be carried out unless he could show within two hours that a mistake had been made. Mr. Huncken did not wait to 'cool off, but left for his lawyers, Meeka Bros., at the corner of Broadway and Kent avenue. There a directory solved the difficulty; there were two Christian Hunckens. The attorney assured his client that he would adjust the matter and Mr. Huncken left for home. When seen by an Eagle reporter this morning Mr. Hunekon was disposed to treat tbe matter as a huge joke. "There wasn't much fun about it, though," said he, "when the word that the sheriff was going to sell me out got noised all over the neighborhood. It was pretty hot here for a while." Mr. Huncken did not know his namesake,; but had heard that .there was such a man on Atlantic avenue, near Nostrand. Oh inquiring there resulted In the information, that Christian Huncken No. 2 - had yesterday - moved to Flatbush avenue, in the vicinity of Vanderveer Park. When the reporter called he found Huncken and his wife Just installed in their new home, where they Intend to establish a grocery. The second Mr. Huncken could throw no light on the case until the name of Lankenau. - was mentioned. "I know ail about it uow' - said he, "but the sheriff has not been here. - BHza Lankenau Is the woman who owned my old store. She was my cousin's wife. Business was bad and I had to make a general assignment and I suppose she is trying to get her money. I don't fear her, though." Mr. Meeker, the lawypr of - Christian Huncken of Broadway, told the "reporter today that the blunder in serving the paper was one for which both the lawyer and the sheriff's office were to blame. "It's too bad that Mr. Huncken didn't allow the sheriff to close up his place," said Mr. Meeker, "for in that case there might have been a pretty little lawsuit." RUMORS OF RICH QUARTZ. A Report From the Kloiidyke District That Gives Renewed Interest to the Gold Craze. San Francisco, Cal.. July 27 Tbe latest rumor from Alaska Is of the wonderfully rich quartz in large quantities on the Stewart river. Particulars art vague and beyond the fact that the ledge is a large one and that the rock assays $300 nothing can be learned. .This, if true, will mean much for the Klondyke district. The Stewart river runs into the Yukon not far above Dawson, and It Is reasonable to suppose that the placer gold now being found below may have had its origin in the mountains at the head of the Stewart river and neighboring streams. Vancouver, B. C, July 27 It Is reported here that the Dominion government has decided to place a royalty on all gold mined in Canadian territory in the Yukon district and that a corps of officials will leave here immediately to enforce the decision. It is probable that the Canadian government will build a telegraph line from Lynn Canal to the Klondyke, and that a system of reserving alternate sections will be adopted. Seattle, Wash., July 27 Those who have an idea that cold weather prevails exclusively in Alaska will be surprised to know that Archie Burns, a miner, was affected by sunstroke while crossing the pass from Dyea. He recovered and proceeded after two days' rest. Chicago, 111., July 27 A party of men who wish to try the Klondyke will leave Chicago on a special train next Saturday night en route for the newly discovered Alaskan gold fields. There will be 150 individuals in the party. The special train on which the party will travel will run directly through to - San Francisco. There the gold hunters will remain three days to purchase mining supplies. The party will then ship for St. Michael on a special steamer. This trip will occupy fourteen days. Three steam launches will be In waiting to transport them up the Yukon River to the mouth of the Klondyke River. This trip will require fourteen days. Each tourist may take 500 pounds of baggage from San Francisco, but only a portion of this will be taken up the river with the party. When the Klondyke is reached the steam launches will be moored in winter quarters. The tourists will live aboard them until spring begins to break. Oft for the Gold Fields. (Special to the Eagle.) Long Island City, L. I., July 27 Charles H. Harvey and Frank M. Barmore. two well known business men of this city, took the 12 o'clock train at Jersey City last night, en route for the Alaska gold fields. Harvey Is connected' with the real estate firm of George E. Payne, and Barmore has a prosperous grocery business at 73 Jackson avenue. Both men are well equipped and supplied with funds. A syndicate was formed by a number of leading business men interested In the expedition of the men. George E. Payne and Dr. J. B. Kennedy are said to be the prime promoters of the expedition. Neither of the men have any knowledge of mining, but both are vigorous and can endure hardship. Harvey bade his wife and five children goodby last night and Barmore his family. Both men are hopeful. Harvey said that they expected to reach Yukon about the middle of September. They went by way of Baltimore and Ohio to Chicago and from there to Seattle over the Northern Pacific, where they will complete their purchases of mining tools and provisions and set sail for Alaska by way of the Yukon River.

Great Excitement in the West Virginia Coal Regions The "True Uniformity" Plan Will Occupy the Time of the Operators While in Conference Tire Labo Leaders' Council in Wheeline D.elayed by.Ratchford. Pittsburg, Pa., July 27 The long looked for conference of the Pittsburg coal operators, at which the Joint arbitration commission fully expects to adopt a plan which will settle the big miners' strike, was. called for 11 o'clock this morning in the courthouse, but owing to the slowness of the operators to gather it was almost noon before It was called to order. It is the largest meeting of the kind ever held in this district. The convention being an open one, miners' officials and many interested citizens are on hand as spectators. The number of operators was increased to about 75 before the meeting began. Alexander Dempster was chosen for chairman. General John Little was chosen vice president. He made a short address, saying the board was here as citizens and had no personal in terest in the coal business. They hope by conciliation and mediation to bring about a settlement between the contending factions. State lines, he said, have nothing to do with the question. You have the power here to settle this controversy. As Pittsburg goes, so will go the other states. After electing Marshal H. Reno secretary of the meeting, a committee was appointed to take up the proposed uniformity agreement, revise it to suit the changed' conditions since its first formulation and report to the conference at 3 o'clock. The committee consists of W. P. De Armltt, G. W. Schluedberg, Thomas E. Young, W. P. Rend, D. P. Black, U. A. Andrews, JameB Armstrong, F. M. Osborne. Recess was then taken until 3 o'clock. As yet the "true uniformity" plan, which is being urged by the arbitration commission, is the only one presented to the conference. While the - operators generally are apathetic and have little faith in the successful consummation of the commission's wish, "they are ready and anxious to dlscuas and adopt some plan of arbitration whWh will bring about peace and put the - , miners at work. True uniformity calls for cash payments for every two thousand pounds - , of coal mined, every two weeks; abolishment of company stores and the uniform screen. The differential between the thick and thin vein coal and between Ohio and Pennsylvania coal may also come up for consideration. The operators in the thin vein coal say the 14 cents difference in favor of thick vein coal is too much and some go as far as to say it - should be cut one - half. This cut. If attempted, will be fought by the thick vein operators, and may be the first rock on which the conference., will split, as all the other points mentioned have . been granted as 'proper In former conferences and conventions. There are 106 railroad mines In the Pittsburg district and these are operated by eighty nine firms. Thirteen of these are said to mine and control almost 90 per cent, of the coal mined in the district. The ambition of the arbitrators and W. P. De Armitt, the father of .the uniformity agreement, is to have 95 per cent, of the elghty - nln'e.' operators'agree to adopt a system or standard of doing business. Miners in the Monongah Region Go . ut - Parkersburg, W. Va., July 27 The miners In MonoHgah region have gone out en masse and news from Southwest and Great Kanawha valley is that the miners have banked on Governor Atkinson's good will and struck. There Is great excitement. Wheeling, W. Va., July 27 The conference of executive officials of the numerous labor organizations of the Country called to - meeting in' Wheeling at noon to - day for the purpose of considering ways and means to win the great coal strike has been delayed in getting to work on account of the failure of President Ratchford of the coal miners to arrive early this morning as was expected. Though Gompers, Debs, Sovereign and other big leaders are here, they are like a Bhlp without a rudder, for none of them Is acquainted with the strike situation as is the executive head of the miners' organization. On the arrival of President Ratchford, the confernce assembled at Traders Assembly hall with Samuel Gompers in the chair. All outsiders - are excluded, but a statement will be given out after adjournment which probably will be late this afternoon. Conservative leaders say the utmost that can be accomplished at the conference is to assess a tax on all of the various organizations to maintain the strike of coal miners. Debs and Mahon, president of the Street Railway Employes Union, - want all to come out. Moweaqua, 111., July 27 Last night a large body of Pana and Moweaqua miners, headed by a drum and fife corps, marched on the Assumption shaft and forced the men who were loading, coal for the local trade and threshers to cease work. This morning when the whistle blew not a miner went to work. The Tanners are very bitter In their denunciation of the miners, Inasmuch as the farming community has contributed to the miners cause very liberally. Cleveland, O., July 27 Thomas Young, the representative of M. A. Hanna, goes to Pitts burg with instructions to use every effort to bring about a speedy settlement of the strike. AH the Cleveland operators were hopeful that the conference would result in some satisfactory adjustment. The feeling that the conference is likely to flash in the pan has vanished, which Is due to ttie apparent determination of the West Virginia miners to continue working. IS THIS PAY GRAVEL ? Italian . Workmen Find Bright Colored Sand in Eastern District. Officer James O'Mally of the Bedford Avenue Police Station called between 6 and 7 o'clock last evening on W. Morris McNlff, a jeweler on the corner of Grand and Rodney streets, with some sand and gravel wrapped in a paper, and handing over the package said to the Jeweler: "Please make an examination of that and see if there is anything in it?" O'Mally said further that he got the sand out of a cellar on the corner of North Eighth and Roebllng streets, - where some Italians had been at work digging. The Italians had become excited because of the bright color of the'sand and began to think there was gold in it. Meniff said he would make an examination and the officer left. As a result of the officer's action an artist and several reporters were sent from New York this morning to Investigate and illustrate the sand. To an Eagle reporter Jeweler Mc - Niff said: "O'Mally did give me some sand about 7 o'clock last night. I do not know where he found the sand." The reporter told McNlff that the sand was found on North Eighth and Roebllng streets. "I have lived in this neighborhood for fifty years," replied McNlff. "and I am sure the sea used to come up as far as that. The sand certainly was very bright and there Is sotfle salt in it. I have no doubt It has been - washed by the salt water and I am not prepared to say that there is no gold until I make an analysis." Mr. McNlff declined to Bhow the reporter the package of sand.
