I'aiis, Nov. 24, The Goie tiagedy was
ptesonted in a, diamntlo aspect today,
when the Fiench oflieials took De Ilytl

and comptlled him to le-enact eveiy
detail or the affair, tills being done
under the piactlce ot the Trench law,
which requiies the reconstruction of
the ti.ig'dy in the presence of olflclals
under exactly the same conditions as it
was oilginally enacted.
The chamber was arranged as on the
night of the fatality and the same
weapon was placed in De P.ydze-v ski's
hand to act out his eISioIl. As far as
is known, tlie piisoner went thiough
the ordeal witli fottitude, without
wavering from his llrst story ot the
accidental fall of Hip levolver.
De Rydzewski le-enacted the dual
scene, giving complete details as to tlie
position of Mrs. Gore and himself. Ho
said he was lying on the bed, fully
dressed, while Mis. Goie was seated at
the foot of the bed, her legs hanging
down on the siele neaiest the wall and
her head thrown backwatds on the
feather quilt, which had been i oiled to
form a cushion. Wishing to take some
thing fiom the night table, he said, he
knocked oft the revolver, which went
off and the bullet stiuek Mis. Goie in

Afterwards he left in a cab, escoited

Ihnery today to settle' the eonsti action
or the will ot the late John I. Hlnlr, over
which a contest Is pi utilised. The suit
Is Instituted In the mime of DeWItt
Clinton lllalr, the only survlng son of
the lllalrslown mllllonalie. He tilings
It as solo executor under the will and
ti ustee under seveial huge tiust funds
ot testainentaiy cteatlon,
Seventeen defendants' aie limned In
the bill, these being the giandehlldren
and grent-giandehlldten of tlie late
Mr. ltlalt. The piluelpnl defendant Is
Chailcs Hcilbiyr, son of the rounder ot

a grandson of John I. Blair.
The main pqlnt in dispute ailses fiom
the language of the testator in making
the beiiucns tu be held in tiust. It Is
claimed bv tlie executor that he is not
tecitilted to supply such secmltles as
the will mentions, but which had been
sold by tlie testatoi between the time of
the execution ot the vvlll In 1S7S and his
death on Dec. 2, 1S9.
It Is contended by .some ot the helis
who aie joined as defendants that the
stocks and bonds mentioned In the will
should be turned ovei to tlie beneficiar

Washington, Nov. 24. The following
statement was given out at the wliKte
house this afternoon:
"On his letuin to Washington, the
piesident found that some misappre
hension existed as to the re-appointment
of the United States attorney for
Delawaie, and authoiied the following
statement legaulliig it:
"Mr. IJj i ne was originally appointed
Tnlted States attorney for Delaware by
Piesident McKlnley. President Hoose
velt knew him peisonaliy. In the opin
ion of the piesident he had rendeied
excellent sei vice for the public good In
more than one dliection, and he had
been a staunch supporter of the piesi
dent when he l.tn for governor and
attei winds, lie was reported by the
department of justice as a fit and com
petent ellstiicf attorney, and tlie presi
dent had entile confidence In his abil
ity nnd Integrity. He accepted the
nomination for congress. Other district
attotnes and maislials had accepted
such nomination without being letiuest
ed to leslgn, but lu view of the fac
tional fight in Delawaie tlie president
thought tli.it Mr. Dyine should lesign,
which he accoulingly did. When the
election was over, the piesident ic-ap-polnted
him without having given the
slightest pievious indication that such
was his intention. He would have been
re-appointed without tegard to the cir
cumstances under which he un, or the
faction with which he was allied."

Havana, Nov. 24. As the result oi

here, two strikeis aie dead and eighty-.
two other peisons are wounded. Five
of the wounded, one a lieutenant of po

have very severe injuiles. Eight other
policemen aie wounded. The polles
have tlie lioteis well under control, but
every piecaulion Is being taken to pre
vent fui titer outbteak or disorder, and
all the police and imal guatds in the
suburbs have been summoned to con
centrate In Havana.
The stilke, which at fltst only eon-
ceined the cigar makeis, became gen

tiades in sympathy with the cigar
makei s. All the trades people closed

and eveiy class ot worktneil having
obeyed the command ol the union ex
cept the motormen and conductors of

Several cars were held up and stoner"

passengers were compelled to walk Intel

Tlie carmen, EowGVTfr, Continued tun

suspension of ti attic. Tha emplojes
weie willing to i etui n to work but the

suspend the set vice. Mr. Greenwood
had. asked for piotection fiom the civil

unable to piotect the public vehicles.
Sympathy of Mayor.
The mavor of Havana and the secie
laiy of government, Dieg Tamayo, had
duiing the past week openly sympa
thised with tlie strikers and had given
oideis to tlie police not to use foice In
dispersing the ciovvds, and under those
conditions, the police .were unable to
cope with the stiikeia.
Tlie situation was approaching a crit
ical point at noon, serious dlsordeis
having taken place in front of the pal
uce Itself, In which a police officer,
named Jlaso, and a number of police
men and striker received injuries,
when President Palni.x sent word tu
tlio mayor that unless the city authori
ties could preserve older and protect
the i.ilhoad company, the state would
intei veue. The mayor then took dtas
lie measuies and Issued an edict pio

stieets and authoi lulus the chief ot

A similar show of force early In tha
nuiining undoubtedly would have pie
vented tlie ti ouble, but now the sulk
eis had become; emboldened and fie
eiuent ihi'he.s between them and tlie
police occulted in all pans of the city.
Tlie polite weie obliged to chaige
a mob ot i intei s at lhe slaughter house
nnd several among the latter were In
juied. The vlgoioijs attitude ot tin
polh e now inadu Itself felt and tiaffla
on the car Hues, which had only been
.suspended for a bilef period, was le
suiued, and was continued from this
time foi th, with only occasional Inter
iiiptlons. Most ot the Injuiles sus
tained by tho Ettikers were caused by
tlie policemen's clubs.
The Central Veteran's union, headed
