It was a light gnthorlng, so farnsnumbers
ninety that wns In attendanco ufion Judgo
Wylle's court this morning to witness tho fur
ther proceedings In tho Btar-Routo cases.
When Iho court openod, Judgo Wilson, Judgo
Carpenter, W. II. Smith nnd A. B. Williams, ot
the counsel tor Rio defendants, woro In at
tendance. -Tho prosecuting orncors woro nil
nbsent and camo tn late, ns usual, lu ono, two,
three order, vl7., Mr. Morrlck, Mr, Bliss aud
District-Attorney Corkhlll said that It was
understood that ex-Senator 8 W Doraoy and
John W. Dorsey would appear hbro this morn
ing and plead.
Mr. W llllams rcpllod that
I.x-Scuntor Doricy Wns In tho City.
nnd would bo tn court lu n Bhort tlmo. Tho
other Mr. Dorsey ho could not answor for, not
being his counsel.
Mr, Morrlck, In regard to tho motion to
quash tn tho caso ot M, C. Ilordcll, asked a
postponement until Saturday noxt, on account
of tho absonco ot Mr. Kor, who drow the In
dictment and who wns nt presont ongagod in
Government coaos In Charleston, 8. C. Ho
said that It was Important that the gontleman
should bo present, and It was Imposslhlo tor
him to bo until tho closo ot tho prosont wcok.
Tho postponement was allowod,
In tho caso of tho motion toauash tho Indict
ments against A. E, Boono by common consent
tho bearing was set for Saturday noxt.
At this Juncturo Colonot Robert 0. Ingersoll
cnmo In, accompanied by ox-Senator Stephen
Mr. A.B.Williams commenced roadlng tho
demands, by tho defendants, undor a bill ot
particulars, nnd was Interrupted by Colonol
lngcrsoll, who askod tho court to sot tho for
feiture nsldo In tho caso of ox-Senator Dorsey,
nnd explained how ho camo to be absent.
The Court Met tho Forfeiture Aside.
Mr. Merrick wlshod to know If that did not
requlro a now bond.
Ills Honor thought not.
"All tho Government sooms to think about,"
said Colonol lngcrsoll, turning toward Mr.
Merrick, "Is ball. Ball seems to bo tho height
ot their ambition. Thoy nood not worry, wo
aro horo to stay."
"We want something moro than your word
for that," replied Mr. Merrick, "vorywoll,"
answered Colonel Ingorsoll, "Wo will stay
here as long ns you will and glvo you all that
you want ot this buslnoss."
Mr. Williams then resumed and said that
the object In asking tor
A Hill or Pnrllculnrs
was that tho dofondants might bo lntormod
who woro tho partlos chargod with making
falso affidavits; what woro tho fictitious
names signed to petitions, nnd whnt woro
forged. It was nocossaryto hao this Infor
mation beforo going to trial, or It would bo
lmposslblo to robut It. For should a wltnoss
como on tho stand to testify that ho know 110
suih person ill ing along a certain rouloas
signed a certain petition thoy would bo unablo
to contradict that testimony. It It could bo
done, on account ot lackoftlmo lu which to
procure mo witnesses.
Mr. Joro Wilson followed ou tlio samo side,
nnd said that unloss tho application was
granted they would bo compollod to Bit In
court nnd listen to tho tcstlmouy of tho array
ot witnesses against thorn, and bo given no
opportunity to rebut tho ovldenco.
Mr. Merrick, in behalf of the Oovornment,
thought thnt this bill of particulars was
merely asking tho Ooiornmcnt to lay out
their whole caso to tho llow of tho defendants
beforo trial. While tho Court had said that a
bill of particulars might bo callod for In somo
cases, still, hu had no rocollocttnn ot an
Instance whcro ono had ovir been called tor In
a criminal caso In that court,
Colonol lngcrsoll prcsoulod Iho afll Invlt ol
Mr. Dorsoy stating that he (Doraoy) had no
xnowieugo oi many tilings cuargeu in 1110 in
dictment nnd could not prcparo or conduct his
dcreuso without being futnlshod with the bill
Mr. R. T, Morrlck, for tho Government, re
sponded. At the closo ot Mr. Merrick's argument
" Clmm" Illlss
made tho closing argument on thnt side, or
rather attempted to do so, and tried to wlpo
the application out of exlstonco ou tho ground
that It was without precodonr ami unheard ot
in a criminal caso, and would virtually rosu It
in requiring tho Goiernmont to sot out their
case, which ho thought should not bo dono.
Colonel Ingorsoll said that this wua not a
conspiracy without at least ono avort act, nnd
tho question was whether that mustbosetout
bo that tho detondatits might know what it
was. Wheu they should como to a trial tho
Government would contend that thoso al
legod falso and fraudulent papers woro tho
ai ort acts. Now was tho defendant ontltlod
to know what these papers wero and by whom
they wcro alleged to bo mado and slgnod. Ho
claimed that tho Uovornmont
prosecutors could not nnd
a caso In tho world w hero a party was chargod
with writing a lorgod lottor but what ho was
furnished with a copy of It. ltwns monstrous
to contend otherwise. How could tho defend
ants go to trial without the Information askod
for? Tho Court could soo ut a glanco thojio
ce6slty tor It. Ho would not ask for any other
authorities than thoso prosonted by tho other
side, and admitted that tho granting ot this
application roslod entlroly with tho discretion
ot tho Court.
Ho said that no particulars would havo
been asked for ft tho indictment had proporly
set out tho chargo and the proper informa
tion. They hud tho right to know ot what
they wero chargod, and when tho prosocutlon
attempted to set It up, they must do It fully
and completely. All these petitions aud
papers nro ot record In tho Post Offlco Do
partment and accessible. Ho appealed to tho
Court lit behalf of his client, and
As an Act of Juslico
that ho bo glvon'a bill ot particulars; that tho
Goiorumeut show tho papers claimed to bo
forged, tho affidavits asserted to bo falso nnd
tho names declared to bo tlctltlous. Unless
this bo done. It would bo Impossible for his
client to prcparo hlsdofense. Ho did not pro
peso to bo forced Into a trial uutll lio know
what ho was charged with. What had been
nsked tor was only fair nnd Just, nnd what the
defendant should bo allowod to hnxo.
Mr. Williams read tho furthor domands of
the bill of particulars, which was to show how
tholndorsomoutsonjockotsmada hy Turner
failed to set forth tho contents of tho papers.
In the ensoof Thomas J, Brady that tho Gov
ernment furnish copies of tlio ordors mado by
him, alleged to he fraudulent, ou post rotito
" Thoso papers, " said tho Judge, "nro on
file, 1 suppose, nud accessible '
"Ihniofuiiud it otherwise, " tepllod Mr.
Wilson. "It tho counsel (nodding his head
toHArd Mr. Bliss) 111 say tho papers are In
the Dopottment, I will tuke his word. "
"I am not on tho ltness stand," answorod
Mr. Illlss, "aud I am not underoath."
" I thought so," said Mr, Wilson, "I will say
that I have madu
Three IVrlltfii Allciillits
to get the papers In another caso closely allied
to this and Ipivo been refused. I do not hesi
tate to say that theso papers are no 1 1 n the Post

"Well, thero Is ono thing certain," said tho
Judgo. "if ou don't get the papers you wn t
bo called uiu to go to trial, '
Ills Honor took the papers and stated that
he would giro his decision on Saturday next,
