About 10:30 o'clock tho State physician,
Dr. Mclaughlin, called at the prison. He
liad not seen Iticheson since his attack of
hysteria last evening and asked if he
could then talk with him. Wardcu
Bridges told him tliut ftiche&on was not
yet nwake, though very nearly so. Tlie
sedative which the doctors gave him lost
night still held a veil over his mind, so
that h" had not wholly recovered con
sciousness. Dr. Mcl.iughlin uiid lie
would see Kicheson and talk with him as
soon as he seemed to have come out of
the effects of the drug and hod had time
to eat u little breakfast.
At about II o'clock Dr. McLaughlin
went to lllchenn in tho death cell and
aroused him. Tlie prisoner had appar
ently recovered wholly from the effects
of the sedutive. After examining the
man, and talking with him u short while
Dr. McLutighlin became convinced that
Kicheson i now in a fair condition again.
He is not u hick man as was reported, but

difference being that he would not eat.
"I expect more hysterical attacks be

"Itichehon was delirious, One Httuck i
like another. There is no degree in them,"
Various attempts with made to gel
Kicheson to take food, but he said that
he could eat nothing, until early after
noon. While the Key. Mr. Stebbins was
with him in the afternoon Kicheson un

but so weak he could hardly stund, lie

BURNING SOFT COAL HERE.

Take Chances With Smoke I.axr.
Soft coal was burned yesterday in a
number of office buildings in Manhattan
to get power to run tho elevators. Soft
coal was used on uccount of the scarcity
and enhanced prices of the steam sizes
of anthracite, and from the einoko vents
of one or two tall buildings black smoke
could be seen arising in more or less
volume. In most cases, however, the
smoke was reduced to u minimum by
The anti-smoke ordinance which is in
force in this city does not presoribo whether
hard or soft coal should bo used. It is
directed simply against the smoke nui
sance. Soft coal for tho last two or three
days has been used mixed with steam
sizes of anthracite in many of the office
buildings, the mixture with the anthracite
reducing the smoke to a minimum.

Properly of a
SIKI.CKKN LAUGHS AT IT
And Offers to Bet $100,000
That We Apologize
The Federal Government mode a new
move yesterday in its effort to enforce
the Sherman law It began un action
ajjulnst Hermann ielcken nnd seven
other defendants lor a receiver for DjO.uko
bags of coffee, "more or less," now stored
In tho South Brooklyn warehouses of
the Xew York Dock Company.
The defendants insist and the Gox-ern-ment
cdtnlls that this coffee belongs to
Uie Brazilian State of Sao Puulo and this,
Mr.Sielcken asserts, Is upt to give the suit
an international aspect.
The suit is designed to break up the
coffee valorization scheme into which
the Government of Brazil und a number
of American and foreign bunkers entered
six years ago.
Judge Hand in the United States Dis
trict Court yesterday upon receiving
the Government's petition granted u
temporary injunction restraining tho
various custodians of the coffee from dis
posing of it pending further comt action.
Of the eight defendants in the caee.
the only two who are in this country ate
the New York Dork Company and Her
mann Sielcken of New York, who testified
last Thursday on the coffee trade before
the money trust investigating committer
in Washington. A United States Marshul
went to Mr. Sielcken 's rooms at the Wal
dorf yesterday afternoon and served him
with the papers in the case, and insisted
also that he accept eervico for the six
foreign defendants, one of whom is dead.
After Mr Sielcken had had time lo
examine the papers he said that he re
garded Uie suit as a novel proceeding.
"1 will bet the Attorney-General of Uie
United States $100,000," he said, "tlut
he will never be nblo to win tliis case
in the Supreme Court or nny other court
to which it is finally brought. And I will
bet him too that this Government will
apologize to the Government of Brazil
for his action before tlie mutter is finished
"Sao Paulo is the principal State of
Brazil," he said, "just as New York State
is the principal State of tho United States.
In a similar case this country would be
obliged to defend one of her State?,
"Suppose, for instance, that the State
of Georgia should buy P.000 bales of cot
ton, its principal product, just as coffee
i the principal product of Sao Paulo,
and ship It to a consignee In Liverpool.
And support! the English Government
attaches it, what do you think this coun
try would do?"
Mr Sielcken went on to say that Die
cotton States had often done the sumo
thing that Sao Paulo had tried to do in
the c.ie of the coffee -alorintion scheme.
"The cotton Slates have clubbed to
gether many times in the last ten years,"
he said, "to devise means to protect their
principal industry. Nobody has ob
jected, and why should nny ono here
. object to Uie same action in Brazil'-
"In Sio Paulo various patriots took
reasonable steps to save tho coffee In-
dustry. which was in danger of being
jklllnl. A committee wus put in charge
. of the snle of coffee belonging to the
' Government of that State, and the com-
mittee has taken Instructions from Sui
! Puulo Tbe committee bus never been
in this country, ''tit it has met sometimes
The members of this committee, to
gether with the New York Dock Com
pany, appear in the Government's bill
as defendants in the action instituted
yesterday. The members ure Hermann
Sielcken of New York, Dr Paulo da
Sllva Prado of Sao Paulo, the Vicomte
des Touches of Havre, the Soclete Gene
rate of Paris, Theodor Willo of Hamburg,
now dead; Edouard Bunge of Antwerp
and Baron Bruno Schroedcr of J. Henry
Schrocder A Co. of London, who is chair
man of the committee. The United
States of America is specitlid us petitioner
in tho notion.
Tho Government's bill was brought from
Washington yesterday morning by nn
assistant to Attorney-General Wicker
shum. It was filed in the District Cxtmt
and Judge Hund's restraining order was
granted soon uftcrward. the casn was
in preparation in Attorney-General Wick
ersham's office long before the Hou:
modey trust investigating committr.'
BUddenly decided to make theooffeo trust

the Sherman anti-trust law, utmounc?
ns thn object of Its suit that " certain
050,001) bags of coffee now in the possession
of the defendants be sold in the murke.
under the order of the court."
The bill goes on to say that in the li,t
ten years the world's consumption of
coffee has risen fiom 15,noti,uoQ bags or
SO kilograms (l.T.'.S poundsi a year 1 1
about iN.iHNt.000 bags; that the United
