TUo Amended Return Declares That

ments Hxpectcd ut tho Ilenrlnu.
The legal fight of the year is to como
up to-day before Justice Bradley, of the
supreme court of the District, and will
begin at 10 o'clock. The case is that of
Major George A. Amies, who was ar
rested by order of Lieut.-Gcn. Scliofield,
acting Secretary of War, for writiug him
a letter, and who was released from arrest
on a pitition for a writ or habeas corpus
issued' by Judge Uradley aud directed to
Col. Ciosson, lu command at the Wash
ington Barracks, who there held tho
prisoner under close arrest.
At the hearing before Judgo Bradley,
Col. Ciosson, Uirough Capt. Comings, made
a return in writing to the court, lu winch
he set up that the prisoner was held on
the order of Gen. Schorield, in which
order no cause of arrest was specified.
Justice Bradley prompt!; dismissed the
nnsoiier uu his own rtcq,iilzatiee in 4S00
lull, aud cuiitinurd the uise for a full
bearing until to-day.
The govcmueiit, aware that there was
no ground to hold A-ajiir Amies, has pre
pared an nmeiKied return to the petition,
a copy of which has bt. en served on Messrs-.
Kalston A lddons. attorneys for Major
Armts. Tlie attorney tor Col. Ciosson. Mr.
J.N. Morrwiu, nlllttucaiur to have this

orncer was nrrtsted, and Col. Ctossoii's
recitation of the advents Just prior to and
suhscu.ueul to the discharge of the prisoner.
fcectiou 2 or the return recites that on
the 15th of Bel'lunoer Ariues held the
offieo of capt.iin of cavalrv; that he was
retired on that d.ite with the rank of
capMin and from that date until the 27th
of beptuubcr leH6, he was an officer ot
the Uiutvd btates Anny entitled to wear
uuifomi and to draw thrce-foJrths iuy
and was daly borne on the army register
and was subject "to the rules aud articles
of war aud to be trli.il by court-martial
for any breach thcreor."
Section 1 sits out that on the 27lh of
SepUmher whdc Gen. Scliofield was Act
ing becretary of War, Amies appeared
at tho door of the room in the State. War
uLd .Navy building, usually used, and at
this time u-ed. as the oifiee of the Lieu
tenant General i-iniiiundlng the army, and
where the said Krhof.eld was at the tlnw
AcltugSeTvt.iryorVar. Tluit when Amies
"w.11 tnlil by the iuetseiiger.it lliedoor tlict
he could not seo Gen. Schofield at that
time, Amies delivered tQ the messenger,
one Richard Jones, a type-written letter
signed by Arnica, direct ed liiin, the mes
senger, to eltver the same to the said
Schofield. 1 no ret urn here reproduces the
letter or Major Amies.
Section 1. nnH iarGcn Schofield read
the letter ai-d that "he. the said Schofield,
as Secretary of War. deemed him. the mid
Amies, to-i.avc committed in the (aid Scho
fleld's presence and Miiliill ins personal

said letter;" that "UieFaid act was highly

as well as rot duct unbecoming an olficer

The rharges ard spciiications, a copy
of whicliacconusanled the return, are based
in terms ui the 01 ftnses described by Gen.
DLME8 AKMEK' STATEMENT.
The goTcniment denies all the allega
tions in Amies' letter It says the charg
ing of Licui. Gen Schofield with unjust and
improper official action toward Amies, as
iu bis communication set forth. Is false,
"and know n b ysald Amies to Le false "
In thi return reiennce lsiuade to rule 05
of the Army Ucgul.itions, under which the
arreft waj made This rule is as follows:
"Officers charged wiih crime shall I
arrested and conllned in any barracks,
quarters, or tents, and riepmed of their
mora liy tbeconiniiniiin'goifiter;andany
orficer who leaes his confinement before
he is set at liberty by his comma tiding of fleer
shall be dismissed from the service."
It will probably appear at the hearing
to-iLiy whether this rule applle.i to the case
or no. To the general apprehension the
be wearing a sword to be deprived of it and
that the tenor of the rule Indicates con
ditions of actual service and oa marti.il
Those who have read about the case will
aL-o probably inquire how the act was, as
the return siys, committed In the presence
of Gen. Schofield. especially in view ot
his own account of the proceeding.
It is not known what is the plan of pro"
eroding or argument of the counsel for
Major Armes in the case to-day, but there
Is an impression that lucre will tie a lively

CO.Vl.EMNtD THE PRACTICE.
Dr. LTA. Johnson, who examined Lee's

ara cundem led the practice of parkin? cars
in that vicinity. J.verj engine, he said,

Mr. C. II. Martin, with Israel U Uriif.n,
tailors, at the turner ot Sevcnlh and Vir

ccibiemning the practice or liarking cars
at that point and oa the line between SKI h
and Seventh stmts. He said the gatciniu
was in nowise lo blame lor the accident,
siLcc no cue can sund at the switch box
from which the gates are manipulated nnd
see an apiircMchicg train from the foiutV'.
This was the unanimous opinion of a num
ber of bjstandcrs.
Mr. It. S. Martin, who resides in the
Virginia rials, on the corner or Seventh
street and Virginia avenue, walked down
the line of tracks after the accident ai d
ascertained the number of empty cars
There were five on the extreme north
track, three on the next traik to thtouih,
aud three on the next track, leaving only
one track clear. The three oil the xuiddic
track had been dropped a short lime
before II c tolli-ion. Me was of the opinion
thai neither the gateman nor the cable
car people could hae seen the approach
ing ei gine. nor were In any way to blame
for the accident.
Coin raitor I". W. Doyle, who was thrown
from the grip lar. received only a (.light
centuion on the side of his face. He said
that he knew nothing of the approaching
train until il was ngnt on them, and had
thrown the wagon against the grip car.
HORSE WAS MANGLED.
The horse was lying across the cow
catcher, frightfully mangled, and before
he had time lo realize anvihiug the grip
car was whirling round nit the track and
he was thrown to the ground.
When he got up the train had stopped
and the mangled remain" or human liemgs
he expected to tee strewing the grouud
were not there. The lady who occupied
the same seat in the grip with him. and
who was also thrown out. had gotten Into
a passing carriage aud driven away. Her
iniuric were evidently as slight as his.
Youug Otis, one of the occuiunts or the
wagon, who sustained only a sprained
ankle, was treated by Dr. ronnan nd
carried to his home. Neither he nor Lee
,aw thetralnuntilthcy were half wayacross
the trak, and then it was too late to turn
back out ot danger. The crash came and
they were too busy looking for a sort spot
to land to notice much about the others.
Of course, tho erjglne being behind the
cars until it was within a few feet of the
wagon and cable cur, the engineer could
not possibly have seen them in time to
stop. As It was he reversed the cigluo

GUIPMAN COOPER'S REPORT.
Mr. A. E. Carver, the receiver at th
Seventh street power house, said that ac
cording to the report or the accident made
by Gripman Cooper II was. so far as be
was concerned, entirely unavoidable.
The report stated that at the time grip
No. 8 was going south, but had stopped at
the Virginia avenue crossing, the gates
being down, to allow a freight train going
east to pas. At the same time there was
a wagou traveling south. The driver, how
ever, had gone a little ahead of the grip,
aud when the gales were raised kept ou
ahead. The freight train was a Ions one
and was moving siovvly.
On the south side ot the train going west
was an engine moving pretty rapidly.
From his position, and because the freight
train intervened. It was impossible for
Gripmiu Cooper to Eee the engine. As
voon as the gates were opened the wagon
started across the tracks, still ahead of
