Grave charges wore made thai   that  if     the-    damage should gr  it a was criminal 'negligence onN the  part of some one to send the Ben-  ningtou to sea, notwithstanding lhe  recent navy department records that  the gi>nhoat was unscaworthy, her  boilers unsafe, and that she theio-  fore should have been undergoing, repairs.  Sensational    developments regarding the carelessness of several nav.il  officers are confidently  expected    to  ensue during l,hc holding <if  the court  of  enquiry   which   A'dmiral  Goodrich  ���������will   appoint  to  investigate   the   explosion  and determine   the   responsibility for the management of  thc engine rooms  of  the gunboat.  One of the most imporknt things  to be cleared up is the fixing of tho  blame for tlie failure to i-epair the  boilers of the vessel when it was reported that they were in a ���������danger  ous condition.  An  engineer  on duty  at  the  navy  department today said:  . '^Official reports from thc Bennington received months ago, and now oui  file in the bureau  of "steam engineer-.

So  far  as     can   be   learned   no  repairs  were  made on  the boilers during the  trip  to  Honolulu  and return."  G RIO AT  BRITIAN  READY.

July 28.���������William Stall  ii laborer     who lived  in   the Bronx,  ;diodlast night at the Lebanon .hospital,   worrying, beoau.se   he     coukl  not scratch  his right foot, says  the  World.  The strange  part, of it is that his  right     foot had bODii amputated     a  week before and buried.    The leg had  been crushed   by  a falling  stone .and  Stall  no more  than  catne  to h-is senses  after the effects of the "anaesthetic   wore  away,   than  he began   worrying   over   that      itching   foot.     It  was no     laughing matter 'with him.  He knew the foot was not-there, tout  he     was -equally sure the pain    was  there and he could not understand it.  The niirst s told him that it was  common enough for a person's imagination to thus take possession of  him, but Stall insisted the pain was  too real to be imagined, and day after day he worried over his missing  foot and  its  troubles.  It soon ceased to be a laughing  matter with the hospital doctors an-.l  the nurses. Stall's appetite left him  and his imaginary pain so-worked  on his nerves  that he was in agony.  In h-is wcalaeined state, when blood-  poisoning set. in two days  ago,     he  was  in   no  condition  to  combat  it.  Last night he died,  still  crying   out After  breakfast   they  presented    \  about  the pain in his foot. with a bouquet of nasturtiums   i  ChiciaeiP'. IUt., Suly 28 ��������� ������o|irj*uij  Iloch, convicted murderer and confess  sed bigamist, condemned to die today for Killing one of his many wives, was one of the most remarkable  of criminals. The exact number of.  women he married will perhaps never  be known, but In is lepo-rted to havii  had more than a score of wives dining the last ten years. Seven of  this number he vvoihU-d in tlns.city,  some of whom are said to have died  under suspicious -circumstances.' Mis.  Mary Welcker Hoch, for whose murder Iloch was sentenced to he'nung  today, died of arsenic roisoning after, a short 'illness.  Preceding her  death he had obtained  from  the  woman all   her money,  as he had  done  in   most of  his   ''ic-  vions marriages.   Five-days after lu-r  death   '."he.married   her sister,   . Mrs.  Einelia      Fiihtr,   who   was'his  last  wife as far as the record  now shows,  anil   the   day  following  the  wedding  he ��������� obtained   from  her $7^>0  to be used,  he said,  in   paying the mortgage  on   the   furnituie   and   house   where  he lived. '   "  A day or two later he disappeared  and"Mrs.  Fisher  Iloch told  the    police.    A search   for Hoch extended  to  Milwaukee,  Cincinnati,  Pittsbtirg and  New   York.

The  bigamous   practice      of  Hoch started   in  Germany,   it       is  said,  when he  was  known as Jacob  Sch-mitt,   which   is  supposed   fo iu^V:-.  been  his  real    .amc.

The woman refused  to  tell her name  but  insisted she  had enough  money.  Efforts were made to^reai-h Govc.rnor  Denee.ii.      The condemned man slept  soundly   during   the  night  and  arose  at his usual   hour.    For  breakfast-he  refused    everything but coffee     and  rolls.    Hoch   at  this time    appeared  quite cheerful and chatted pleasantly  with his guards.

When at its full height  lightning struck a tree standing close  by tlw back- of the house, felling it,  on the back pantiy and at the same  time entering the house, doing much  damage to the whole building. Air.  Gordon, in telling ot the unpleasant  experience, said he >vvas suddenly  struck in the mouth, as'ii by a"blow  from a man's' fist, thc effect of the  concussion   rendering  him   for   a few  moments  insensible.   The lightning ': struck one child on  the foot and threw the boy, who was  s tting on his rn other's knee, on the  floor. Thc whole house was for a  moment full of light, lhe caip-ct on  (he floor was torn up. Mrs. (Gordon and the children ran from the  mom. and as he turned to follow Mr  Gordon saw .to .his amazement that  thc pantiy was on fire. ^Fortunately  a bucket oi watei was at hand, and  with this he extinguished the flames,  which were Legmning to get a fair  hold on the pantry. Mr. Gordon  showed a Ledger teporter over thc  house (bis morning.  The electrical charge had apparently enleied the house by vvav of a  small window in the pantry, I real'ing  a cons dc-rahle quantity of china and  sinking a sack     of sugar, set fire to  hugr ifiu.uil ity inlu the sitting room.

A huge number or people in town  weie tladly shocked last evening,  those, Jiving at the top of the hill  .seeming to have caught the worst.  Among the ih'iny who have been  heard of this morning is Mrs. Clarke:  an  aged   lady  living on  Fourth  Ave-  was struck the place was filled  with* nuc.     Mrs.      Clarke ventured out of  gas. Tho cxterioe of'the house  came in for a fair share of attention.  In the first place tlie large cedar  tree which as before mentioned was  .splintered up, fell on the roof of the  pantiy, Juiocliing that part of the  building altogetner out of plum. A  wash tub standing on the back ver-  liindah was hurled several yards  down this garden and a soruh'bing  brush   and   other articles  outside  the  thc house dur tig the storm and was  suddenly thrown to the ground. She  managed to call for assistance and  was .helped to the house, where upon  auhal she faiofed. She was restored to consciousness after some  time, but today is feeling very ill.  Mr. Harry Hay went down to Kcia-  "yon's ranch eaily last evening on his  bicvcle.   lie was letuniing home when  the storm was at its fiercest and re-  buck door badly damaged.

The damage done by the lightning  was not alone confined to the house.  A galvamzc-il wiie used tor a clolhes  his body a wierd an.d objectionable1 sensation. The drenching rain did not  add to Mr. Kay's comfort and he arrived home, to put it in nis own  words, "resembling a drowned rat."-  Soine of these people who .did not  crawl      into dark     places and cover  line was bluing fiom the tiee to iwo'theii heads     with blankets spent the  |-outhouses,, The electric charge it  seems, followed this wire, binning-it  in several places and catered the  chicken house. ^1 he building, although  still standing is badly damaged and  the tlooi of it is coviueil with splinters torn from lhe walls. A large  number of chickens were roosting in  the shed, and the lightning killed  two fine ic.lets.

Many people watched tihe  lightning over the mountains across  the lay. Each flash illuminated tlie  heavens in a manner the splendor of  wh eh it is impossible lo describe.  Those looking across the bay saw  a Htigc treo close by Page's ranch  struck.    For   jamoment     it  appeared  one singed.

Arthur   Hamilton  Lee,   civil  lord   of  tlieadmiralty,   announced   that  thj  admiralty  had  decided  not to proceed   with   the  Chatham dockyard extension,   but instead  to push  work on   the new  base      at  Rosyth Firth.    The Chatham    extension scheme contemplated   the expenditure of $22,500,000. -Explaining, the  reasons     for   this step,   Lieut. =Col.  Leo     said    there   was a piobaihility  that warships in the future would'bo  fewer  in  number  and gi eater  m  individual  power.   Hence  the berthing  and   docking  space must   be  of    the  largest sive.    The admiralty had decided  that   Rosyth   possessed   gnsatet  strategical      and    other  advantages  than Cftatham.   The plans had been  prepared   for   a nav-al   base   of      the  most  complete  description,   so   that  ���������extensions could      be carried  out  as-  required.

On the   way over from Chicago on  the steamer City of South Haven, a  story     was     circulated to the effect  that one Calvin C. Saundeis had ftur.  'ed three     caskets on the     Michigan  beach and that 'the finder of the pro  per one     would discover not o������ily a  valuable diamond ring and a  watch,  but a     proposal     of marriage would  follow in rapid order .     Miss Crowe  as well as     dozens of the other girls  took the hint     with apparent scorn,  fc'ut"nevertheless it was not ced  that  they hied  to thc beach   w th  enthusiasm on  the     arrival of the boat at  South Haven.   To the smpijse of lhe  entire party "Miss Crowe located  the  casket     containing    the     jewelry as  scheduled and     also a card  maiked,  to express for hei futiue.  The incident caused much "comment  during the day, and on her return to  Chicago Miss Crowe decided lo resign her position and leave the city  temporarily.  Miss Crowe is evidently very popular among, her asscc-iatos at- the department store, for not one of them,  although nearly all aie young women, had anything b.it good wishes  to express for hheii future.
