Over Agala-Sad ' Hesa.lt of
New York. Aug. 8. A double tragedy
was enacted on the sidewalk In front of
325 East Eighty-eighth street at 1155
o'clock today, when an Italian stabbed
two women repeatedly with a stiletto,
inflicting wounds rrom which both will

assassin is Plllppe Ulampata, 47 years
old, a shoemaker. His victims are Kate

27 years old. The sisters were walking
down East Eighty-eighth street on the
way to their home, while all unknown
to them Olampata, who stood In hlillns
In the vestibule of S23, awaited them
with murder in his heart. In his hand
he held a stiletto, eight Inohes in length,
made from a piece of quarter inch steel,
sharpened to a needle point.. As the
two women reached the steps of the
house Glampata sprang frpm his hiding
place with a shout and curse, and
seizing Kate by the throat, plunged the
stiletto Into her left breast near the
heart. The wounded woman screamed
In agony and her sister shrieked for
help. Withdrawing the stiletto the as
sassin plunged it again and again Into
his helpless victim, accompanying each
deadly stroke with a curse.
Olampata having wreaked his de
moniac wrath on Kate, turned to Rosa,
who stood paralyied with fear, and.
seizing her by the throat drove the
keen weapon Into her body over and
over again. He was plying the weapon
on the woman when George Hohensteln
seized his arm. Then he turned upon
Hohensteln and struck him with his
knife, ibut fortunately without wound
ing him. Hohensteln then loosened his
hold and Glampata started away on a
Before he reached the corner, how
ever, he was taken Into custody by
Policeman Lldel. Lldel called two
other policeman and sent them back to
look for the girls. They found them
where the stabbing had been done.
Katie was still lying on the sidewalk
and Ro3i was bending over her. An
ambulance was called, and both girls
were taken to the Presbyterian hospi
tal. There it was stated that Kate,
who had seven stab wounds, one near
the heart, and the others in the arms,
back and breast, could not possibly sur
vive her Injury. Rosa, who had re
ceived no less than nine wounds, the
most serious being one in the back,
near the spine, might recover.
Cano of the Murder.
The cause which led to the tragedy
goes back two years, when Kate Wells,
then about 16 years of age, met Glam
pata and fell In love with him, although
he had a wife living. Glampata made
her presents and spent much of his
time with her and the usual result fol
lowed. He betrayed her, and the Inti
macy was maintained until some time
last May, when they quarrelled and
separated. Glampata kept the baby,
which was the result of their Intimacy,
and would not give It to her, hoping
by that means to force her to return
to him, but she would have nothing
more to do with him.
He still loved her, and pursued her
with his attentions, following her on
the street and loitering about her home,
until on July 2 last she pro
curred a warrant 'for tils arrest. He was
taken Into custody but Magistrate
Crane discharged him on his promise
not to annoy the young woman any
He still persisted In annoying her and
yesterday she again caused his arrest.
When arraigned before Magistrate
Mott this morning, Kate complained
that he annoyed her when he met her
on the street, and that he persisted In
asking her to return to him. The mag
istrate held him in $500 ball to keep the
peace, and paroled him In the custody
of Lawyer Quitman until this after
noon to produce ball. Nothing In Glam
pata' s manner showed that he med
itated revenge, and he said no word
that would lead to the belief that he
mediated the fearful deed which he
committed less than an .hour later.

iNew York, Aug. 8. (Mayor Strong

excise laws, when he sent for Mr.

refused point blank to change his views

The politicians behind Mayor Strong

K TROUBLE IN CH1HA
Shanghai Dispatch Gives Account of
HATRED FOK MISSIONARIES
The Prejudice Against Foreigners Is Very
Great Among the Native Population.
"Vegetarian" Society Unknown to
the Legation at Washington.
London, Aug. 8. A dispatch to the
Pall Mall Gazette from Shanghai says
It Is stated In that city that further fan
atllcal outbreaks against Christians
occurred at Chlng Chow, Talplng, Hu
pah and Anhul. It is stated that all
the foreigners escaped without Injury.
No confirmation of this report has been
Washington, Aug. 8. The Chinese le
gation In this city Is still without offi
cial information regarding the late out
rages by the members of the "Vege
tarian" society In China upon the mis
sionaries and of the foreign element re
siding near Kuchung. The members of
the legation claim never to have heard
of the "Vegetarians" before. They are
believed to be a fanatical sect whose
purposes are political and who have In
cited the recent troubles In order to em
broil the Peking government with for
eign powers. This being accomplished,
they will then Inaugurate a rebellion
against the constituted authorities and
under cover of this commit such atroci
ties as would be most gratifying to
their savage nature."
Prejudice Against Missionaries.
The prejudice against the foreign
missionaries among the native popula
tion Is very great. While the Chinese
government Is bound by its treaty obli
gations to protect the missionaries and
permit them to carry their faith Into
the remotest provinces of the empire. It
finds Itself powerless at times to over
come the feelings of hostility which
the majority of the people entertain for
foreigners. The social, religious and
political life of the Chinese is so Inter
twined that when a Chinaman aban
dons the teachings of Buddha or Con
fucius, he is believed also to have be
come an enemy of his country. While
fhe absurdity of this is apparent to all
persons oiitside of China, the opinion is
believed to be well founded there that
the missionaries are sowing the seeds
of discontent against the government,
and this accounts to same extent for
much of the opposition to them.
The place where the atrocities oc
curred is not Indicated on the map and
It la unknown to the officials of the le
gation. It is believed to be a summer
resort near Kuchung. where some of the
missionaries and their families are
spending the heated term. Its remote
ness from the large industrial centers
made It more easy, it Is said, for the
Chinese fanatics to assault the helpless
