of a battle royal in the tmioklng room

In circumstances which caused a lot of
fun to the onlookers, a majority of

trick which started the row.
One of the men. who resembles An

voyage he was mistaken by many for
the Laird of Sklbo. gave a check in the
ship's pool on a bank which went out of
existence several months ago. It hap
pened that the chairman of the pool was
a banker. The pool was Won by the
other swindler, who Insisted on getting
real money In place of the check. The
signer of the check refued, whereupon
tho men clashed and a merry tight lasted
fir several minutes.

messengers were seen carrying the enso
into the basement.
It was nn isolated "rnse." Others
have been received nt the Secretary's
office recently. Many gifts of grape
Juice have been sent since the occasion
of Mr. Brynn's dinner to the Ambassa

made known. The Secretary refused to
discuss the "case."

B- Justice UAMHI, F. OOI1ALA.V.
When I read in the WorW last Sun
day Its account of the alleged transac
tions, Beven to nine yeara ago, between
, John A. Connolly and myself, thn fact
that I must bo subjected to a period or
newspaper tortur.i was apparent. That
urtlclo contained one dellnltu charge
that I had taken Connollys note for
j.oOO in consideration of
I rrnm , , t political place for
attack upon me.
Following the H'orM's original publi
cation 11 printed a dally series or con
trlbutions to Its columns as fiom tho
pen of Connolly himself. I- have lately
U ai ned that lie was at on, time an In
mate of an Insane asylum. The par-
I tlcular conditions lh.it compelled Ills
j t onllncment were described in the corn-
mltment papers to be "hallucinations.
delusions, incoherence, gieat and cause,
less mental excitement unci violence."
It wa nlo certified that he was "In
coherent in speech, violent In action
and restrained and controlled with dif
ficulty." The essence of Connolly's story Is
that by the exercise nf political Influ
ence I obtained contracts from public,
officials for Connolly; that I did this
under nn agreement that I .should le
celve from Connolly Tiu per cent, of his
net profits in these contracts; thnt I
represented to him that n sum of $1,500
or some other sum wns to lie paid to
others; that ho brought suit against
mo to recover tills money, nnd thnt
to avoid a lawsuit I returned It to him,
that ho then wanted my influence to
get for him n political position, and gnvn
me his noto for $4,000 on my prom
ise to do tfcnt; that I did not get the
place for him, and because of further
thrent of suit I gnve htm back the

This story is false. It Is the fabric
of ii disordered mind. It Is false that
the money he paid to me wns paid ex
clusively In connection with such work

It in false that I ever said to Con
nolly that I would puy or did pay or had
to pay $1,500 or any stnRlo dollar to
any person of any kind, character or
description in connection with the mat
tor, and this Is a particularly vile lie.
It is false thnt T returned his payments
