UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
Second Day's Session-Trials and Incidents of
Tho United States district court con
vened yesterday morning for the second
day's work of the term.
The indictments in five cases, viz., Jo
seph Cereny, John Roztual, Frank Dudek,
Joseph Caha and J. A. Hanna, were
quashed on the same grounds. They were
charged with perjury, having sworn that
they did not enter and occupy previous to
April 22 the particular quarter which they
wish to prove up. Tho point was a strong
one but not good enough and the motion
was overruled. The indictments were sub
sequently quashed for the reason that
the only fact set forth was that
the defendants did enter and occupy
said claims prior to April 22, which was no
crime provided it was also prior to the is
suance of the president's proclamation or
March 2. There was no charge that they
had entered during that certain period of
time which would make it unlawful. This
settles this matter unless the present
grand jury finds a new indictment and it
is not likely the case will be presented to
The quibble as to whether it was nec
essary to enter and occupy both in ordor to
prove up, has not yet come up and is not
likely to for the reason that the attorneys
generally interpret the law to mean enter
upon and occupy (in good faith).
The William Sea et al. case charged with
timber depredation came up and the de
fendants were acquitted. It is generally
predicted by the attorneys that the other
similar cases will be similarly disposed of.
The sealed verdict in the case of Lee
West, charged with introducing, was for
acquittal, and was read soon after tfio
opening of court. In the three cases he
was found guilty on one count, in the case
for selling. This was the bulk of the morn
ing s work and court adjourned early.
The afternoon session opened up at 2
o'clock and tho trial of cases was resumed.
As yet the grand jury has reported no in
dictments, but Mr. Soper, the assistant
prosecuting attorney, says several indict
ments may be expected in the evening's re
port. Tho case of Oscar Spurlock, charged with
introducing and selling, was heard and the
defendant found guilty as charged. The
defendant was not present during the trial
and. as tho charge is only a misdemeanor,
it was not necessary, provided he was rep
resented by counsel. An Indian witness,
who was not very particular who was con
victed so long as justice was ap
peased, swore point blank that
one of tho attorneys present as a spectator
was tho man who bold him the whisky.
Spurlock was convicted all the same and
hopes to get off with a jail sentence on ac
count of his absence during tho trial. Un
der tho United States law misdemeanors
may bo punishable by imprisonment in
tho penitentiary at the option of the court.
Frank Prudom on a bimiiar charge was
The following cases were set for today:
Robert Jones, for introducing; John Bear
man, introducing; James Nugent, larceny;
John Poore, larceny; E. B. Chapman,
larceny; R. M. Hunt, introducing; E. C.
Wallace, introducing; S. W. Pettit, chief
justice of the Osage nation, charged with
assault with intent to kill; Guy McGashen
and Kate Craig, charged with perjury,
nnd Clyde Mattox, charged with murder
and assault with intent to kill. Mattox
is quite a young man and is at
present in jail on another charge of
murder. On the charges for which
ho is to answer today he was
released on bail but has been since arrested
charged with tho murder of a colored man.
It seems that in August a year ago in
Oklahoma City, ho wanted to get posses
sion of the marshall's office, claiming to
have been appointed deputy by a man con
testing the office of marshall with the in
cumbent. To this end he opened lire on
men in charge. Two of them, Howard and
McKay, came to the door and returned tho
lire. Howard was killed and both McKay
and Mattox were wounded. The circum
stances in tho case were such that he was
admitted to bail, and it is for this offence
that he is to be tried today.
WESTERN SCHOOL OF ELOCUTION AND
Among the new institutions in this city
which arc attracting attention is the
Western School of Elocution and Oratory,
which has just been established by George
W. 3Ioss, A. M., LL. IJ. This institution
was successfully inaugurated yesterday
forenoon with a formal public opening,
which was attended by a goodly number
of ladies and gentlemen, representing tho
various educational interests of the city.
Attorney Charles F. Collin made the
formal opening or introductory address,
introducing Dr. Hoss to the people in a
glowing eulogy of tho achievements of tho
doctor as an educator. Being formerly a
resident of Indiana, Prof. Hoss' former
state, Mr. Coffin was prepared to speak
from a personal knowledge, for many
years of the professor's educational record
in tho Hoosicr state, as well as his work
in this in connection with tho state
normal school at Emporia and Baker
university at Baldwin City.
After the introductory address, Dr. Hoss
read a suitable scripture lesson, which was
followed by a very eloquent and appropri
ate prayer by Row L. T. Van Cleave, tho
new pastor of tho Central Christian
Rev. J. C. Hewett and Hon. W. E. Stan
ley made brief, but appropriate, addresses,
speakiug of tho character and object of this
now school, nnd of the nature and benefits
of true elocution and orator', bidding Dr.
Hoss God-speed and abundant success in
his new and laudable enterprise in this
Dr. Hoss received his guests in the most
cordial and agreeable manner, and ex
plained to thorn the nature of his proposed
work, giving a brief history of the develop
ment of institutions of this kind in this
country, and tho advancement in elocu
tionary and oratorical training, aud ex
tended to all a cordial invitation to visit
his school at any time.
Quite a large class mostly of young
men was enrolled for the opening of this
school, which opens under very favorable
auspices, and with omens of complete suc
cess. AT KING MAN.
The Knights of Pythias returned yester
day morning from Kingman, having had a
most enjoyable visit. Work in the second
aud third degrees was exemplified by
Grand Chancellor M. L. Holiowell and up
wards of five hundred knights partici
pated. ThcChicaska lodge of Kingman,
were the entertainers, and they made such
a good impression on the visitors that all
will want to return. As a finale a banquet
served at the Brunswick and the Wichita
boys were just as much at home there as
in tho exemplification of the work. In fact
the work only whet their appetites and as
they were feeling pretty bright yesterday,
it is safe to conclude tho banquet was well
served. They say the bill of faro was su
perb and the Kingman boys are the princes
Luna A. Watrous wife of E. M. Wat
rous, died of consumption last evening at
9:30, at her late residence, 1240 South Ida
avenue, aged 27 years. Funeral will take
place Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
SHOOTING AT THE PARK.
Harry Hill, Jr., and Walter Stubbs have
arranged a match with rifles, shot guns
and revolvers, for $250 a side, at the Riv
erside base ball park, on Saturday after
noon at 2 o'clock. Both of these young
men have a record for fancy shooting and
as mark&men that makes the match ot in
terest. Ten per cent of the receipts will
be given to the Children's Home. Captain
Stubbs will also do some fancy shooting
on the occassion.
Wichita university opened yesterday
with a large number of students. The
prospects are very bright for a large at
tendance. Many from abroad have en
gaged rooms and will be on hand later in
the week. A large number of new faces
was recognized among the students this
morning. The electric line will be com
pleted, it is believed, at least to the top of
the hill, in a week, when first class
accommodations will be given to the hill
and the university.
There is a feature in the tax sales this
year which evidently means something
and is regarded in a favorable light by
the holders of tax titles. Heretofore out
lying property was well sold for the taxes,
but this year that bid in nowhere. The
speculators do not like the way things are
going and are finding out that others
know what property is worth. They have
always supposed simply because it has al
ways been done that the property muse be
sold for the taxes, but tho law reads that
the property or any part thereof must be
sold. Quarter sections are paying the
taxes easily by the sale of ten acres, and
the competition is increasing so that five
acres will likely redeem a quarter section
There are several reasons for this, the
first being increased value of a tax title,
but the main reason being the small num
ber of tax sales, which is below any
county in this state, or any state for that
regular meeting of Peeerless
271 A. O. U. W. last evening
when Master Workman S. Dunkin called
for business relating to the good of the
order, T. F. Clegs came forward and with
a few appropriate and touching remarks,
presented Dr. J. M. Minick, past master
workman, with a very handsome gold
badge. The doctor was taken by surprise,
but soon regained composure enough to
thank tho brothers in a way that showed
he most heartily appreciated the gift. The
design is very handsome and unique as the
following description will show:
Curved gold bar engraved J. N. Minick,
P. M. W., and attached to the bar by
chains is a gold plate with a raised shield
and anchor with the letters A. O. U. W.
The edge of tho plate is beautifully engraved-.
On the opposito side of the plate
is engraved from Peerless lodge No. 271,
Wichita, Kan., 1890.
Last evening Miss Millie Daratt was
surprised at her residence, 222 South
Osnge street, on the West Side, by a num
ber of her young friends who made things
very pleasant. The occasion was her
nineteenth birthday, and the celebration
will long bo remembered by all present.
Miss Daratt made a charming hostess al
though taken completely by surprise, and
not only made all welcome but entertained
them in a handsome way. During tho
evening refreshments were served, and a
variety of pastimes chased the time away
only too fast. Among those present were
noticed Misses Hester Orcutt, Hettie
Niswagoner, Grace Maxwell. Nannie
Southwell, Emma Hagerman, Ida Mitts,
Pearl Hays, Gaffcrty, Hattio Murphy,
Mesdaraes Murphy, Laffer and Carny.
Messrs. F. E. Brook's, Lewis Ward, W.
Tusch, E. W. Spofford, G. B. Jones, Dick
Jones, Claud Cartright, Harry Cottman,
II. E. McConnell, William Mitts, Guss
Hill, Charles August and J. M. Griffith.
KIGHT AT A SOCIAL.
Two of tho packiug house cmplojes as
sisted by a number of friends indulged In
a little melee in which one of them was
crippled for life. A social was given in
tho eveuing at tho hotel after their picnic,
and an old grudge had to come to the sur
face as they had sufficient beer in to
banish their wits.
McMann, one of the principals, fancied
he saw a boy stealing some of the liquor
and he could stand anything but that.
His opponent, named Schilling, thought
that McMann was stealing the liquor him
self, and his righteous indignation was at
onco aroused. During the fracas that fol
lowed it would have puzzled a Philadel
phia lawyer to get at the true story, but
knives and pistols were flourished with
more or less damaging effect. In short, it
was no scene for a lady to witness, and the
language that got mixed up in it would
have compelled her to stop hor ears with
cotton. After the wrath of the combat
batants their seconds, thirds, fourths, etc.
had spent itself it was found thatMoManu
needed the services of a surgeon, aud Dr.
Williams was summoned to bind up his
bleeding foot. It seems that a pistol shot
had struck him near the ankle, penetrat
ing into the foot. The wound is painful in
the extreme although not necessarily dan
gerous, but will keep him from earning
his living tor some time to come.
Tho Sunday school of the West Side
Baptist church went to Alamo yesterday
picnicking. They were joined in the
gove on the Little river by the Alamo
Sunday school, and the day was spent
most delightfully by all who attended.
Games and sports of various kinds were
engaged in, and at noon the contents of
the baskets were spread out a very feast.
j It was full 8 o'clock in the evening when
the party returned to the city. Alamo is
quite a favorite resort for picnickers, being
a charming retreat from the city, though
readily reached by the electric railway.
Judge Reed was on the bench yester
day aud occupied the main part of the day
in the disposition of motions nnd demur

was heard. No issues of interest were filed
iu this court yesterday. Hart was sen

The Maggie Palmer case on the second
charge of embezzlement came before Jus

the matter under advisement. Civil work

day were diseased of as usual
A JAPANESE PHYSICIAN.
Last Sunday a Japanese physician of
note passed through the city and in a short
interview set forth as far as possible the
practice of medicine as It is understood in
that distant land. He speaks English
fluently and with a precision that is rarely
met with. He learned the language at
home from English teachers and only for a
peculiarity in accent would be a master of
the language in its purity. He is on a five
years vacation and intends to travel con
stantly the balance of his time. He told a
singular story in connection with the
discovery of Dr. Brown-Sequard's elixer
and seemed to regard the whole
matter as a huge joke on the
American people. It seems that when the
1 rench a few years back were fighting the
black flags of the Province of Tonquin, au
old torn manuscript was stolen from a
chemists laboratory, and this the French
tried to decipher. They made an amusing
mistake in translating what i3 a vegetable
growth in China into the word lamb.
Then with the balance of the meagre
knowledge the manuscript contained they
sprung the elixer of life on a credulous
public. He then spoke of all kinds of life
insisting that the principle of self preser
vtation ran through the whole kingdom of
life. There are enemies on all sides and
there is a consant conflict between the
principle of life and its enemies,
and it. is this conflict that makes the
principle of life active. In this
same vein of reasoning he said that the
moment food was put in the stomach a
conflict at once commenced. The poison
ous elements were expelled and the nutri
tion was absorbed as long as life lasted.
If a perfect system of dieting could be dis
covered the race would simply degenerate,
but sucn a discovery was not in the nature
The following is given verbatim as near
ly as possible and is the gist of his conver
sation: Your people understand not Japan. It
is very old; it is not ignorant. Even our
little town has a school of medicine that
was already old when books began to be
printed with type in Europe. In this
school the chair of therapeutics has been
filled by my father, who succeeded his
father, who succeeded his father, and so
back to the time when it wa3 founded by
Dr. , who came there from China
and whose name my brother bears. Iu
our family it has always been the custom
to name the oldest son . His career is
already marked out for him when he is
born. He must succeed his father in the
chair of therapeutics. All his energies are
bent in that direction. But when I was
born a difficulty arose. My brother and I
are twins and the first children. Which
should succeed to our father's name and
practice? At the earnest solicitation our
mother we wero both given a
medical education and both were
told the secret of the family's
success, a chemical formula learned
by our ancester in China and bequeathed
from father to son as a precious legacy.
The document has been willed to my
brother, but we share the knowledge of
Oh, no, I can not tell you this secret,
because you would not comprehend it, but
the nature of it, yes. It concerns magnet
ism. In this age of electricity everybody
knows that all matter is electrified; that
diverse kinds of matter are differently
electrified; that different kinds of matter
are differently affected by the same kind
of electricity; that if the amount of elec
tricity iu a body be increased the vitality
is increased and that it appears to be
made more alive, and that if the amount
of electricity be decreased thero seems to
less life. What is this spark
of life we have so often mentioned?
Is it the electrical spark? When it
goes out of a man, no matter how long
sick, it is as though a cloud passed across
his face. Now if the body as a whole is
electrified, may not the various tissue
that goes to make it up be variously elec
trified, both in kind and amount? May
they not be variously electro-sensitive and
electro-active? The epiblast this, the hipo
blast that; the endothelium one, the
epithelium another? Your physician ad
ministers one medicine for its effect upon
the eye to dilate it; another for its effect
unon the same orcan to contract it. He
administers one medicine to quicken tho
heart's action, another to retard and
strengthen it. And still others he admin
isters for their various local or specific
Well with a knowledge of all these
things an instrument the pathoscope was
made partaking largely of the naturo of a
You might mistake this for a walking
stick, but look more closely. Observe the
dial where you thought was the head.
Upon this dial 3-011 can see this index point
ing at Heps. You must have good eyes to
read the letters after II. This shows me
that it is the hepatic secretions that are
affected in your case. Possibly you
thought yourself in perfect health.
So you are nearly, for tho index is
only partially deflected. The amount of
the deflection is in direct ratio to the in
tensity of the pathological condition of the
This, then, serves as a pathoscope or dis
ease tinder, and as a walking stick. It is
made of a specially prepared glass tube,
encased in wood throughout nearly its full
length At the top whero I grasp it there
is no wood. The tube is filled with ozon
ized (not rerated, but ozonized alcohol
which has been specially treated otherwise
also. But the index is the chief secret.
It is a vegetable growth. The plant
if well known, especially in Japan, but the
particular part and its u-es aro to the
world not known. The secret of its prep
aration also is hidden. You wonder what
electricity has to do with this; I will show
you. Every person has a certain amount
of magnetism. When your hand grasps
the pathoscope the whole appliance is
electrified; stand it beside this vacant
chair, now see the index fall. It will go to
the bottom like a thing dead if you but
allow it time.
By accident the interview was late at
night and when the doctor had finished
speaking it was nearing daylight. He ex
plained that he had acquired the habit of
retiring at 5 o'clock a m., the night being
a critical time with patients and the best
for study. Going to the window he opened
the shutter nnd looked out. Absent mind
edly he quoted or framed a neat sentence
about the day presuming to kiss the clouds
and the chaste Diana, surprised
and shocked gathering her som
bre draperies about her bewitching
form, and retiring to the went,
when he turned suddenly with the remark:
'We do not have such thoughts in our
language and I regard them a arch ene
mies to deep study and, I might add, dan
gerous to the mind."

Teo Jamu' Manhood.
''Jesse James, the Missouri bandit,
possessed many manly qualities," feel
ingly exclaimed Uncle Dick Hendexsoa
at the Brunswick hotel. "I knew him
well. He was turned into a Nemesis
after the Pinkertons threw that bomb
through the window of the Samuels resi
dence and blew off the arm of Jesse's
mother. Ever after that occurrence
both Frank and Jesse declared war to
the knifo on tho Pinkerton men. The
killing of Jesse James by Bob Ford was
the cowardly act of a treacherous, un
grateful fiond. Bob wasn't 'eating reg
ular' when Jesse took him to his homo,
gave him shelter and food and treated
him well. Ono day, when Jesse was
dusting off a picture and had his back
turned, Bob shot him from behind. Of
course you know that but very few peo
ple ever learnea what picture Jesso was
dusting off when he got his death wound.
It was the large picture of his-dear old,
white haired mother, whom he loved
"In ono robbery at Blue Cut, when
tho James gang went through a train,
Jesse led the way and relieved the pas
Bengera of their valuables. He camo to
one woman in black, who was sobbing
bitterly. Jesse Btopped and inquired the
cause of her sorrow. As she handed
him $70 in greenbacks she cried out con
vulsively: 'It's all I have in tho world.
My husband's corpse is in tho baggage
car.' Tears came to the eyo of the train
robber. Going into his pocket ho re
turned tho $70 and added two crisp $100
bills to it, which he forced the widow to
accept. Ho never would rob a cripple,
or an old gray haired woman, either.
Ho once took an overcoat off his own
back in tho streets of Liberty, Mo., and
gavo it to a poor, shivering old man that
had been turned out into tho cold by aa
ungrateful son-in-law. I could namo
many other instances." Denver Repub
lican. Secretary Seward's Opinion.
I heard a story of William H. Seward
the other day which I think is a new one.
I am not certain, but I am impressed
with a conviction that it comes from
Miss Olive Risley Seward, an adopted
daughter of tho late Secretary Seward,
whoso Bohemian literary salon is one of
tho most charming places to which ono
can have the entree at the national cap
ital. It was at the time when thero was
great agitation of tho removal of the cap
ital, and all Washington was alarmed.
One of the scared ones said to Secretary
Seward, "Mr. Seward, do you think the
capital will be removed from "Washing
ton?" "Yes, I think it will," was tho re
ply. "But where to Chicago?" "No."
"What? Not to St. Louis? Well,
whero then?" "To tho City of Mexico.
That will probably be tho center of pop
ulation of the United States ono of these
days." Pittsburg Dispatch.
Llke Its Nameiak.
Middlesborough, England, is well
known as tho great center of the iron
trade a city of 60,000 inhabitants, with
130 blast furnaces, and an annual out
put of nearly 2,000,000 tons of pig-iron.
But there has recently been founded an
English Middlesborough in America,
which bids fair, if its present rate of de
velopment continues, to represent in
time as much wealth in gold and iron as
tho older city of which It is the name
sake. Two years ago it bad jio existence
save in tho minds of its founders; today
it is a city of several thousand inhab
itants, aspiring to become the principal
seat of the iron and steel manufacture of
the United States. Haxper'B.
