"as the Individual in the case there who
I knew under the name or Trait."
THAT $5,000 NOTE.
Mr. Samuels testimony showed that
Holmes nor 1'itezel never obtnlnod any
money on the note, but used it to extort
the $5,000 from Mrs. l'ltczi'l.
Whether it la possible that Holmes could
have been plottlu; l'liez-el's death In April
or Mry he onlvnroh.iblv knows, but he cer
tainly had some motive for obtaining a
recuiarly urawn up note.
The way he ruaincd possession of 11

drawn up, leavlojr theTlrst in tils hands.

the purpose or proving that ihe prsoner has
a wife in Wllmetle, 111., as well ns the
woman who is tn this city no w aud whoruhe
married under the name of Howard.
As it was the evident intention of Mr.
(rahnm in proving the identity of the wo
man in Wilmelle ns Holmes' wire that
liemlgliltIiusbefri-etoi)laiv"iIrs. Howard '
on the stand, the defense made a vigorous
objection to Geary testifying.
The objection v.as overruled, and Geary
testified to the fact of seeing and talking
to a woman in. Wilmelle who is known
as Holmes' wife, ami so acknowledged to
be by him.
A letter from Holmes to the woman In
Wilmelle. in whic:i He (.peaks "f belr mar
mnrrUige, was read tothe Jury.
The defense entered a general objection
to any and all le-tllmonj- bearing upon the
question of Holmes' marriages.
Just after this Holmes, lor Ihe first time
since the trial, gave way. and so acute was
his emotion that lie vteiu. A fair lilonde
halnil girl was led toward the witness
When Holmes saw her lie started, and
his pallid race Hushed and then crew
ghastly pale. He beckoned eagerly to his
atlornevs, and with tears running down
his cheeks talked with great earne.-tness
Tne witness was asked her natueand gave
it as Georgiaun.i Yoke. Then Ihe reason
Tor Holmes' eagerness was apparent.
It was the girl whom he married uiider
the name of H. M. Howard. Holmes ifrEeil
his lawvers to use every means in their
IKiiver to prevent the witness from testi
fying, but their crrorls were useless, as
the irt overruled all Iheir exceptions
and oriliTcl the exJiniinaliou to go on.
The wit ness ke(it lier eyes cast down. and.
like Mrs. I'ilezel. a court officer reliealed
her low answers lo the jury. Neer once
dlil she glance at the man she once thought
was her husband. He. on the contrary,
looked longingly toward her, and occa
sionally wled a tear away.
Miss Yoke testified that she knew the
prisoner under the names of Holmes and
Howard. She met hun in St. Louis, and
while lie wa in Jail engaged Thomas II.
Harver and Howe as lawyers lo defend
Mr C5r.ih.im ng.de no reference to any
marriage between the prisoner and Miss
Yoke, hut went on a nd askisl her If she was

She saiTl she was. and llien he asked her

Holmes at No liion North KleM nth street

Holmes had since told 1 er. was Pitezel.

Mr. Kotan here broke in and stated to the
court that the prisoner asked permission to
lie allowed lo cross examine the witness.
Mr. Graham objected, and the court said
theroatter would bcdecidcd when it cameup.
When Mr. Graham resumed his exainliu

he did not like. He asked the wltnofs

Judge Cole's court was this morning tbe
scene of merriment that has undoubtedly
never liefore been iiaralleled In local courts
of Justice as far as the continuity and scope
of ihe hlllarity went.
The (mention or the validity of the will
of the late James E. Young, tbe eccen
tric old man of Columbia road, who left
a SoO.COO estate, was again up for con
sideration. "Aunt" Loiusa Curtis, an old colored
woman, was the central figure In the
comedy that made every looker-on feel
that It was well worth the price of admis

ENTEKTAINED THE COURT.
The old colored woman who to-day
Ieaiied into uotonety as a "court enter
tainer" Is al least fiw and sixty. Spois
or white are shining in her cru-p black hair.
She Is the typical "belo' the wahmammy,"
and her voice had that Inquisitive, wonder
ing, upward accent that makes her testi
mony lose much of its uniqueness when
written. She had worked Tor Mr. Young
the last six months berore he died.
Tell us about Mr. Young," began Hi.
"Weil, sah. he used to act very runny;
very runny. Indeed. He did a heap o' things
a senslol- man wouldn't do."
"Well, Aunt Louisa, what did he do that
a sensible man wouldn't dor' asked tho
"Well, once he tried to kill a pig. a pet
pig." said theamusing old woman.
"How did he do that;"
"In the early mornln. once, sah, I beard
a pig equealin'." she continued, "an I
went out. He wus up stompln' on the pet
pig, and had broken It's leg- I asked 'lm
what he was golu' lo do." He said be wus
goln' to kill it and scald It in the well.
Indeed, he did lots of things a sensible man
wouldn't do, Mr. Llpscombe."
"Did he ever fight anybody?" asked the
SHOT -AT THE PEDDLEK.
Indeed he did, sah," Ihe humorous old
character continued. "Once a peddler
came to his house while I was there. The
man hadn't got in the yard, when Mistar
Young run to the upstairs window. Bang,
hang, went a pistol, and the stranger went
flvlng down the road."
The old woman's realistic word picture
ot the leaden reception given tho visitor
by the eccentric testator caused a peal ot
uproarious laughter that struck Judge,
Jury, bar and audience, and that the crier's

per cent and a drop In rentes in Paris o

The heaviness of the foreign market wa
due to the complication in the East.
Our stocks were freely sold by London,
and in the first transactions prices ran ofl

brought in local supporting orders, and a
recovery of 1-8 u 1 1-4 per cent took
place. Oeneral Electric rose 1 1-4 to
