occupied during his wife's absence from
Mr, John W. Cameron, In relating
the sad discovery, said: "General
Belknap was found dead In bed this
morning about 8-30 o'clock. I arrived
at the ofllce somewhat before that time,
but I was not surprised at not seeing
the General In his private olllce, as he
frequently does not get up until a lute
hour In the morning. 1 thought no
more about tho matter until the colored
servant gltl asked me if the General
had gone out. She said that hU bed
room door was locked and she had
knocked at it frequently but had re
ceived no answer. This somewhat
alarmed mc, and the Jtnltor of the
building was Informed.

was broken open and the General was
discovered to be dead. Ills left arm

and his left leg buns out of the bed, as
If he had suffered a sudden stroke.
"The General was In perfect health
when last seen alive on Saturday night.
He had enjoyed a pleasant and so
cial evening with a party of friends
plating cards, as Is his custom on Sat
urday evenings, and retired about 12
o'clock, seeming to be In the best of
spirits. Ills death was probably due to
apoplexy, occasioned, perhaps, by the
excitement due to the critical condition
of Justice Sillier.
"Tho General was an Intimate friend
of the dying Justice, and onlv on last
Saturday spent considerable time at his
residence. From all Indications I
should judge that the death occur roil

Immediately upon the discover? of

Dr. Fretlerlch was summoned, but

On tho dressing case In Ids room
were two letters addressed one to his
patents and the other to bis wife. The
one to his parents merely contained
his wishes as to his burial and the
names of the pall bearers that lie wished

For the second tlmo within a few
months Frank Hoffa. the Seventh-street
jeweler, bos suffered loss through theft.
The last time, it will be remembered, a
display of Jewelry had been left In the
wlndoiv. Late at night the police of
fleer on tho beat discovered that tho
largo plate-class In front of the store
had been broken with a stone and
everything of value In tho window re
moved. Yostcrday about 11 !W o'clock Sir.
Hoffa went to his place of business to
took about, as he customarily does on
Sundays. He found everything In per
ftct order In the front of the building,
but upon going to the rear room was
greatly surprised to see tint some valu
able welches had been removed from the
show rases and the shelves.
"Well, I am thankful that they did
not get Into my safe," renwked Mr.
Hoffa, as he noticed that the front part
of It looked as natural as ever. Upon
going Into the small room In the rear
Jewelry and settings were found strewn
over the floor, also a number of
In the back of the safe a bole nearly
two feet square was found. Little
holes had been drilled a certain dis
tance apart all around, and then by the
use of a jimmy or chisel the Intervening
metal had lieen cut. The composition
mateilal between the Inner and outer
plates was easily pecked out and the
Inner lining completely forced out.
The safe was more of a protection
against tire than burglars, and was
originally Intended to have been bricked
up or used In a vault. Through this
aperture the entire contents of the safe
The burglars evidently took their
time to the work, as they had deliber
ately removed the diamonds from the
settings ami left watches and other
jewelry that they did not consider of
value. Entrance was effected to the
store by climbing out of the window of
a photograph gallery in the adjoining
building and then breaking the sky
light over the little rear room. There
was no window in the rear by which
their operations could lie heard or seen.
A small hole was bored through the
partition, tbrouadi which one of the ac
complices watched the store and the
street in front.
Sir. Hoffa immediately reported the
robbery to Inspector Swlndels ami tlte
uetective lorce wo at once put at work
on the case. At first Mr. Hoffa esti
mated his loss at ? 15,000 and after an
investigation be feels satisfied today

that they left the city before daylight.

The strong constitution of .IttsUce
Sillier sustained him in his struggle
against death Ions; after the doctors had
given up hope. Yesterday morning his
condition was found to be slowly chang
ing, and the steady approach of death
Dr. Lincoln left the dying Justice's
bedside about 0 o'clock, bellevln that
he bad made his last call. He did not
think It possible, he said, that the Judge
would survive until midnight, but he
bad known similar cases In which the
patient had lingered for several days.
I)r. Cook stated that the Justice's face
bad begun to show the marks of paraly
sis more plainly, being drnwn from Its
natural shape and discolored by blood.
During the day, and until late In the
evening, a large number of callers
visited the house, tunny of them simply
inquiring the condition of the Justice.
Late In the afternoon Mrs. Harrison
called and spent a short time at the
house. Chief Justice Fuller and
Marshal Wright of the Supreme Court
remained during the earlv part of the
evening at tho tiedsldc of 'the Justice.
Sirs. Sillier, although almost com
pletely prostrated, has borne up well
under her bereavement.
Justice Miller's family and a num
ber of friends were anxious watchers
at Ids bedside all through the night ex
pecting that the end might come at anv
moment. But little change In the sick
man's condition was noticed during the
night. His sturdy constitution seems
to continue the unequal struggle
against death lone beyond the time It
was thought possible for him to survive
the fiital strokes. This mnrnlnir bis
breathing Is so rapid and dttticult that
his death is momentarily expected. Un
conscious and propped In bed. with the
organs of respiration filling with
phlegm, It Is felt that his vitality can't
much longer resist the strain, and that
the end must come soon.
At 11 o'clock this morning the robust
form of the Justice, lying utterly un
conscious, was hovering between life
and death. Drs. Lincoln and Cook ex

which the patient clings to life. Sirs.

THE TRESBNT POLIfE SYSTEM IN
NEED OF REFORM.
MAGISTRATES COURTS SUGGESTED.

a nmm imm to the witricl
Seme Valaibls kirm That ShiuU
Ak4 Ob Tfie Xtwrd of Ike Trarel
itg Temple of Justice.
The uueellon of having magistrates'
courts in Washington has quite fte
rtuently been tllecttseetl, ami the manner
In which police justice is at present
being administered in the IMslrlel has
revived the agitation of the question.
The matter at the present time is
brought up In the Interest of justice
and humanity, and I bote who have very
closely watched tlte "court on wheels"
during the pest week have come to the
conclusion that It was about time there
was a change.
There Is not a rliy In the 1'nlted
States of the same imputation of the
District where so many cases have to
come under the jurisdiction of one
court. In most of the large cities ibey
have cither justices or magistrates'
courts. In which prisoners arrested for
trivial offenses can have a speedy trial.
In n city like Washington, where there
are a large numlter of arrests of this
nature, in consequence of the exlstlnir
laws which requires the selection of
olllccrs from either the Army or Navy,
the demand for magistrates' courts
seems more Imperative.
A review of tho arrests made durlnj
the pail live or sl months show ilia
the arrests made between the hour of
8 o'clock a. nt. on Saturday ami &
o'circk a. m. on Sunday will average
over one hundred. From s a. m. Sun
day until the same hour on Slondjy the
average Is shown to be about fifty. To
Illustrate: On Sundav morning, Sep
tember 7, the arrests made tnthe various
pircliicls reached 113. which, added :o
the flfly nne made between H a. in Sun
dav and H a. in. Monday, made a total
On Sunday, September It. the num
ber on the blotters at the several ttatlont
was 110, and on Monday 37, making a
tolal of 141. Iu many Instances the
prisoners are released on collateral
whete they happen to have It them
selves or are iorttinate In having frlsnds
who will put up for them. Then again
the majority of those arretted are re
quired to remain locked up very often
ftom t n'clerk Saturday morning until
the time of opening the court on Mon
day, and very frequently until the mid
dle of the afierEoon or until the case,
can be rtachtd.
In the meantime these people, who are
entitled to a speedy trial, hwe to be pro
vided with food at the expense of the
District, and from the record kept of
money paid out in this direction the cost
will aggrtgate a little over ftoo a
The appointment or magistrates would
dispense with this expense almost en
tirely, as they could visit the stations on
Satuidsy afternoons or evenings, hear
the cases, lock up the guilty ones ami
allow those who had been taken in by
some ovtrotllclous ofiicer to go to their
"This change Is bound to come, and
very soon, too," said a gentleman who
is about as well posted as any one on
the way in which things nave been run
ning lately. "Why, this peripatetic
system Is making it all the worse. I'ris
oners are being hauled about from sta
tion to station like a lot of cattle, and
there are lots of cases that have to be
continued over from day to day."
"Well, what can you suggest as to
magistrates-" was asked.

carefully, and feel tsturt d thnt four

"Of course, I do not mean to dispense
with the FoUce Court, but should hve
it used as court of appeal, where those
not salisfitd with the magistrates' con
clusions could refer their cases. Tnte
would relieve the Criminal Cwrt of
many of the burdens imposed upon it
ami at the tame time expedite justice.
The Police Court could at the seine
time have eselualve jurisdiction over
