SLAIN BECAUSE OF A DOG
•SPANISH JOHN’S” VICTIM DIES AT
THE CITY HOSPITAL.
Ennis’ Widow Tells the Story at the
Coroner’s Inquest of Her Husband’s
Fatal Mer-tAng’ with the Spaniard -
Struck Down with a Loaded Cane for
Stepping on a Dog—Scenes at Ennis’
Henry Ennis who was struck in the henil
some time ago with a loaded cane ly Jolm
Roderqui, alias "Spanish John,” died at the
City Hospital yesterday morning, and
Coroner Dixon held an inquest and examin
edpthe few witnusses that could be found.
Miss T. Renter, Mrs. Mary Cosgrove, and
Mrs. Mary Compson, all throe testified to
the same facts. They were sitting on a
piazza, on McGuire and Indian streets, on
the night of June 5, and heard a dog bark.
They looked aronnd and saw if man raise
his arm and strike something three times,
and the object that was struck fell to the
ground. They could not see whether the
mau who did the striking had anything in
his hand for it was dark.
Mary Augloe, the keeper of a negro
baguio where the affray occurred, testified
that Ennis called to her and she ran out into
her yard, Ennis asked who the man who
struck him was. She inquired what man,
and he described his dress and sai l t hat lie
carried a loaded cane. She told him that
was "Spanish John.”
CAUSE OF THE QUARREL.
Ennis then said to her that John had
accused him of stepping on nis dog’s tail,
and then struck him with the cane. The
woman saw “Spanish John” and had the
cane in her hand. It was a small black cane
with a loaded head. She accused John of
striking Ennis, and wanted him to go to the
hospital where Ennis was taken and see
him, but lie denied that he had anything to
do with the affair, and said that ho would
not go to the hospital.
Mrs. Annie Ennis, the wife of the dead
man. testified that Ennis came home on the
night of June 5, and t hat his head was
bloody. He told her that "Spanish John”
struck him on account of a dog.
The verdict of th** jury was that the
deceased came to his death from the effects
l of a blow on the head made by some heavy
instrument, in the hands of Roderqui, alias
Spanish John, and the jury considered it
THE POST MORTEM.
A post mortem was made by Dr. John D.
Martin, who attended the injured man. He
gave the Coroner a statement in which he
said that when Ennis was taken to the hos
pital, the day after he was struck, he was
suffering from compression of the brain.
The doctor trephined the skull and found a
clot of blood under the dura mater. He re
moved the clot and the pat ient began to im
prove, and for two or three days lie was able
to take nourishment, but afterward he liegan
to sink and kept sinking until he died. The
post mortem showed tliat an abscess, the
size of a hen’s egg, hail formod as a result
of the disorganized clot, and the doctor had
po hesitation in saying that Ennis’ death
was the result of a blow received on the
CAUSE OF DEATH.
The bodj’ was taken to the home of Mrs.
Ennis, but on amount of the abscess decom
position se,t in at once, and the odor was so
rail that the Coroner determined to remove
the body to the cemetery to await burial.
He sent his assistant to the house for the
body, and there he found a frightful scene.
The" widow and three of her female friends
were under the influence of liquor, ami the
widow was vainly endeavoring to lift the
head of the body from the coffin to kiss it.
In her attempts to show her affixation for
her dead husband she had covered her hands
with his blood, but this she did not heed.
Her friends stood by her, lending her their
aid and comforting her with their muiudlin
sympathy. The house was filled with the
soiled doves of Ynmacraw, and the death
was made the occasion of a wholesale spree.
The Coroner’s deputy was compelled to
use force to remove the body.
A FRIGHTFUL SCENE.
The women screamed and wanted to fight
him when he said he was going to take it
away, and wlieu at last he did get it into
the wagon he had to drive in a gallop to get
away from the crowd of women that started
after him. The body was in such a condi
tion that it could not lie permitted to remain
in the house. It was t aken to the Cathedral
cemetery and will lie buried this morning.
Roderqui is in jail under a warrant issued
by Justice Nnlighten, and will lw held to
await the action of the grand jury. He has
been known fora long time as ,a dangerous
character. Soon after tho affray in which
he struck Ennis he disappeared, but was
finally arrested hv Police Officer Sullivan.
He is generally known us ‘‘Spanish John.”

Roche, but had destroyed the letter, and did
not not send it.

and also to finding Roche in the house on the

At one time the testimony was so indeli
cate that J. J. Abrams, Esq., Mrs. Patter
son’s attorney, asked the court Pi stop Mr.
Patterson from answering until Mrs. Pat

Mrs. Hearn and Mr. Hearn, who live just
opposite the Pat terse as, testified to seeing

THE HAVANA MAILS.
Effect of the Strict Quarantine on the
General Manager H. S. Haines, of the Sa-_.
vannah, Florida and Western railway, re
turned yesterday from Florida. He was
asked concerning the statement ''ttributed
to the officers the road that unless the
quarantine regulations at Tampa are re
laxed the steamship company will recall its
bid for the Havana mail.
•‘There is no foundation for such a state
ment," was his reply. “No one connected
with the company has ever, to mv knowledge,
said any such” thing. We do not want
the authorities to take any chances on the
matter of quarantine. What we did ask was
that we might be informed exactly what
would be done in that matter. We wanted
to know what regulations would be enforced
in order that we might be guided by them
in making our bids to the government. If
the quarantine is to cut off all travel we will
have to charge more for carrying
the mail than if we can make something off
the passengers. At present the steamship
company is not making a cent.”
“Are the quarantine regulations in the
interior of Florida rigidly enforced?”
“They are that, and it is the most ridicu
lous thing in the world. Aixmt every
county in the State is quarantined against
every other county, and every town against
every other town. There is not a case of
yellow fever in Florida, except in Key
West, yet a man cannot move from one
county to another without a certificate that
lie has lived for fifteen days in the place he
is leaving. Why, a man went to Florida
from Omaha the other day and they quar
antined him, and he was scared to death
and wrote home that yellow fever was all
over the State. Of course the
certificates scare timid persons, but
some old travelers who know how
to get around things take the inexperienced
one side and get them a certificate for 25c.
Even some of the negroes are writing their
own certificates. Those who understand
the thing travel with certificates from
every county they are going through, and
when the inspector comes through they
hand him out the proper one and go on all
right, it is absurdly riduculous, but it fur
nishes $5O-a-month positions for politicians
who have nothing to do, and so it is kept up.
It is well known that the fever will not
penetrate into the piney districts, and if
carried there will die out; it will not spread;
yet these districts are under as strict a
quarantine as any others.”
“How is work progressing on the South
“We are grading there; that is all we can
do now. It will lie some time before the
road is in order. We have a bridge to build
and have to build half a mile out in the bay
at Tampa. It is no small piece of work to
build a seaport out in the water, and it will
take a good while to rip it.”
Col. Haines was asked about the interview
which ho will have with Mr. Plant in New
York, where he is going to-day. but he said
he did not know what tho result of that

The Medical News of 11th inst. contains
an article by H. A. Hare, M. D., University
of Pennsylvania, on “The Influence of Beer
on Salivary and Gastric Digestion,” giving
tabulated results of practical experiments
made with sixteen different heel's. In this
tablo the shown retardation of digestion
varies from lm. 80*. to 1 hour 55m. 125., and
the “Tannhaeuser” brand of the Bergner &
Engel Brewing Company occupies the proud
position of first place. In these days of in
digestion and dyspepsia a man ought to be
careful what he drinks. We shall always
have the above brand on draught at our new
saloon and pool room, which we shall open
at 170 Broughton street, on Saturday, 18th
inst,, at 6p. in., and to which grand open
ing <mr friends and the public are hereby
respectfully invited. Respectfully,

Attention is called to the advertisement of
Mr. M. Sternberg, who has removed his Sil
verware, Clocks, Jewelry, Fancy Goods,
etc., damaged by water at his late fire, to
the store, 1(51-2 firoughton street, opposite
Ludden & Bates, where ho proposes to sell
ail of these goods regardless of
cost and value during the next
four weeks. The reputation Mr. Stern
berg bears, and the fine lines of
goods he sells, will, no doubt, insure him a
speedy sale, as he does not intend to carry
back to his regular place of business any
article, no matter how slightly damaged.
The largest portion of his stock is only
slightly soiled, and here is a good opportu
nity to buy first-class goods at your own
Lounging Shirts at B. IT. Levy & Bro's. Just

lot of Embroideries and Laces, Fine Hosiery,
Handkerchiefs. Dress Goods, Velvets, Dress
Buttons, Jerseys, etc. Our intention is to

have made such big reductions in our
prices that wo must succeed in it.
Our former store will not be ready for oc
cupancy until Sept. 1. hence we will be out
of business till then.
We respectfully invite you to secure these

Advice to Mothers.
Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup should
always be used when children are cutting
teeth. It relieves the little suffer at once; it
produces natural, quiet sleep by relieving
the child from pain and tho little cherub
awakes as “bright as a button.”
It is very pleasant to taste. It soothes the
child, softens the gums, allays all pain, re
lieves wind, regulates the bowels, and is the
best known remedy for diarrhoea, whether
arising from teething or other causes. 35
cents a bottle.
