OVER THE NIAGARA FALLS-
It is Claimed that Graham Made the '
Leap in His Barrel.
NIAGARA FAI,I,H, Sept. Ist.—Last
Sunday afternoon Carlisle I). Gra
ham made a successful trip through
the whirpool rapids, the Maelstrom
Foster's flats, before an assembled
multitude of 15,000 people, that was
preparatory to his effort to-day to
pass over the falls, which according
to Graham himself and a few other
witnesses, was accomplished in safety.
The same barrel was used. At 6
o'clock this morning it was towed
out into the river by Andy Home
and Garret Cahill,and at 0:45 a. m.
it was let go at the point opposite
the Chippewa Creek. Down the
current it swept, plunging over reefs,
then out of sight, till at 7:10 it ap
proached the brink and dropped 200
feet into the abyss IKIIOW. The bar
rel soon reappeared intact and was i
espied in an eddy. Elmer Jones
swam out from the Canadian shore,
caught hold of the rope fastened to
the barrel and towed it in shorei
where just at 7:25 a. m. Graham
was lifted out by Jones and Cahill.
Graham was quickly brought out
more dead than alive to Home's
saloon, on this side. Graham him
self says the first 1 knew was when
someone struck the barrel and said:
"Graham are you alive?" He com
plained of terrible pains in the back
and head from the rocking he had
received, and could talk but inco
herently. About a dozen people
verify the statement that Graham
was in the barrel and many more
will say that they saw the barrel go
over. Graham was probably led to
h'-< exploit In the appearance here
of Steve Brodie villi the avowed in
tention ol jumping the falls.

Waller I'iirsotK., the ninn
Dushore, Sullivan county, Pa., to
the Advertiser, Kays that Mrs. Rob
ert. May Hamilton, who is implicated
in the stabbing affair at Atlantic
City, is an okl resident of this place.
She is the daughter of William
Steel and was born in Wilmot twp.,
sonic thirty years ago. Her maiden
name was Eva Steel. About 1870,
at the time of the opening of the
Bernice coalmine in Sullivan couti
ty, the family removed to that place.
Ilere Eva developed into woman
hood, and about 1876 with her
beamy, added to a perfectly deve
loped figure, she captivated Walter
Parsons, son of a prominent gentle
man from Boston, who was then
superintendent of tLe mines.
TIIK NEXT TWO YEARS.
During the next two 3'ears they
passed as man and wife in this vic
inity, Parsons saying she was his
wife at the hotels where they stop
ped. In 1878 Parsons became tired
of the fair but frail Eva, and re
turned to Boston, leaving Miss
Eva behind. For several years she
drifted between Towanda, Elmiraaiul
Waverly. About 1881 she left this
vicinity going to New York. The
last time she visited this town was
during the holidays last year. She
was accompanied by a man who
gave his name as J. Mann, who
claimed to be her husband. Those
who knew her at the time of her
liason with Walter Parsons said
her beauty was much faded and she
showed unmistakable evidence of
her <ast life.
How SHE AND HER COMRADK LIVED
IN ELM IUA LAST FALL AT A IIOTKL.
The Advertiser of yesterday says:
It is now generally known and eon
ceded that about six or eight years
ago Mrs. Hamilton was a resident
of Elmira, but a few people
in fact, not more than a half dozen,
is it known that she lived there
less than a year ago. The woman
arrived iu Elmira early last fall, ac
companied by a man, who proceed
ed with her to one of the most fash
ionable of the city hotels and there
they registered as Mr. and Mrs. J.
Mann. They engaged sumptuous
apartments in the hotel, spent
money lavishly, and in short rolled
high. She attracted much atten
tion by her rich attire, and seldom
appeared twice in the same custume.
SILKS AND DIAMONDS.
Her robes were all of si'k, and
diamonds always ornamented her
ears, hair and neck. Their apart,
ments were the scenes of nightly
revelries, and Dr. Morse was upon
several occasions called into ad
minister to the woman when suffer
ing from the effects ol the previous
evening's dissipation. Such pro
ceedings soon attracted the atten
tion of the other guests of the house
and also of the proprietor, who im
mediately caused their removal from
the house. They then engaged
apartments in a dwelling on West
Third street. Here their hilarity
continued, and the same lavish ex
penditure of money was kept up.
WHAT MR. MANN WANTED.
Dr. Morse was several times
summond to their new residence,
and one day received a call from
Mr. Mann, requesting the doctor to
accompany him to one ot the city
banks to identify them that they
might get the money on a check
for $-200, made payable to Mrs.
Mann. He did so, but the cashier
thought more than a mere introduct
ion was necessary and requested
Dr. Morse to put his name upon the
check, lie was of course too good
a business man to do this, but gave
the man a loan of which was
repaid the next day. Subsequently
Mrs. Mann opened an account with
the bank and frequently deposited
checks for large amounts drawn by
Robert Hay Hamilton, of New
They remained but a short time
when they went to Towanda, Pa.,
where Eva's brother was in trouble
cl.aiged with some state prison of
tense. By a liberal expenditure ofi
money they succeeded in clearing
the brother at the trial and returned
to this city, when Mrs. Mann drew
out the balance remaining to her
credit in the bank, amounting to
some st<oo or §BOO, and the two re
turned to New York.
UNFORTUX.VTE ALL AKOrXJ).
NEW YORK, Aug. 30th.—During
tho past year Robert Ray Hamilton
has been dealing largely in re:J es
tate in this city and Brooklyn.
None of the deeds recorded make
any mention of Mrs. Hamilton, and
in several the granter, Robert Bay
Hamilton,, is especially declared to
be unmarried. The law provides
that a married man cannot sell pron
erty in real estate without inserting
his wife's name in the deed of con
veyance, because every married
woman has an inchoate right of dow
er in her husband's estate, which
upon his death she can claim as her
own. The absence from which an
indenture of the name of the wile cf
the granter, if his wife is living at
the time, impairs the title to the
property and the purchaser or gran
tee has cause for damages in legal
proceedings. It is believed Mr.
Hamilton was married at this time
last year. The exact date of his
marriage will he a matter of impor
tance to persons who have purchased
estate from him.
Mr. Hamilton was one of the pro
moters of the Metropolitan Land
Improvement Company, which
bought extensive tracts in the
Twenty-fifth Ward aud sold small
parcels to persons in poor circum
stances who built their homes there
on. If the sales were made after
Hamilton's marriage all tho gran
tees will find themselves liable to
expensive litigation in the event of
Mrs. Hamilton surviving her hus
band. The sales of Brooklyn prop
erty amounted to more than !?30,-

outcome of the Democratic embrog
