THE NT All: OF Til Altl..
The business outlook grows more
ami more encouraging. The strike has
dwindled from 1!50,K)U strikers on the
1 Ith insUmt to '17,000 on the 21st
This is a rapid decline, and one that
assures a present adjustment of labor
to capital, anil a quick recovery in
the mar future o ail that
iw lost by the weeks
during which so many workshops
were silent and railroad truflic was
impeded, From the crop centers the
news is equally encouraging, and
everywhere the prospect is regarded
as p' omitting. It is too early yet to
nay anything definite as to cotton,
but it is reasonable to presume that,
with favorable weather, great progrcHi
has been made in planting and
that the acreage devoted to the Blap'o
will not full below that of last year.
In financial circles wo get very en
couraging reports. The clearances for
the week ending (Sa urday woro 10.8
per cent, increase over those of the
week previous, showing a steady cuin
as the increase for the week ending
ine K.tn was 12.8 over the pre
vious week and those of the week
ending on the 8th were UOO.OOO,
(XX) more than for tho week beforo
that Tn the stock market traders had
"it all to themselves and all their own
' way," there being no controlling forco
in speculation. In New York tho
Chronicle reports commercial paper as
"unchanged, except that some banks
have shown a disposition to secure
paper maturing in October, which
they have not heretofore been williog
to take j short acceptances falling duo
in June, July and August have been
generally ' absorbed. Commission
house names with four months to
run are in moderate supply, tho
makers borrowing against un
sold stocks of goods. Should
the clearing-house bank returns show
gains hertafter in deposits and re
serves, it is anticipated that more of
this paper will be taken and more of
lereil. Tlrg indicates the growth of
confidence in progress, and tho
greater hopefulness which prevails
regarding the business and industrial
situation. There was a rise in tho
nominal rates of foreign exchange
Tuesday, but after that tho market
was dull nt the advance until yester
day, when it became strong, and en
gagement for gold shipments to
I-ondon were made to the amount, of
i7fi.r,51L'. lxiwcr rates of discount in
the open market, London, induced
foreign bankers to buy long ster ing
instea 1 of abort, as being tho more
profitable, and hence gold shipments
earlier in the week were avoided."
The decrease in tho amount of gold
held in the New York banks during
the week was ftki'J.OOO. The Ihink of
Kngland reports a gain of .!3,C00 bul
lion during tho week. This represents
15,001) net received from abroad and
7800 from the interior. The Hank
of France shows an increase of )7,0L'"i,
OOOfraiKs gold, and a decrease of
3,9011,000 francs francs silver, and the
Dank of Germany, since the last re
port, gained 7,50 000 niarkB.
H K JUOK I tKT THIAL BT Jl'RY
There Is much disaaliBfuution in

hw's delay in the Supreme Court of
tho St ti is a mocksry of justice.
Tuere is louuthing radically wring in

of h's ti!ils thiough so many years
of expensive litigation. Kvery county

bus'-if's rretrtd t i's adjuJics'.i? n,
and when the Judges of the Inferior
courts were the pride and boast of the
people, express the opinion that the
fvil to onr judiciary began with elect

psople do no wrong, snl while they

We boast of the right of trial by jury

to hear and find upon nice points of
facts and law seems stupid and absurd.
Ignorant men are caught up from the
highways-men utterly Ignorant of the
suhtleties of the law, tco stupid to com
prehend the facts, and are expected to
comprehend both the facts and law,
when they have harJly enough com
prehension lo keep themselves out of
jail or the fire. The intelligent, the
hotter class of citizens are 8 vera o to sit
ting on juries, which is their abomina
tion. They have not the time, and the
compensation is S) inadequate that it
seems monstrous to demand their val
uable bourj for such a pitrpoje.
It is true that each one, when
he finds hiimelf a party
to a cult in court ia indignant that a
panel is made up of men oither incapa
ble or vicious, or both. It is a well
known fact that in every important
cose the respectable lawyers recom
mend their clients to employ shysters
to fix the jury. And then when a liti
gant takes an appeal to the Supreme
Court from the verdict of a jury thus
fixed and composed of ignorant or cor
rupt men he finds no redress. Triaj
by jury the palladium of our liber
ties can be materially Improved. It ia
hero to stay, but beyond question it
lacks that perfection which orators
c'alm for it.

A DEFECTIVE'S STORY.
STARTLISU TESTIKOXY IX THE
Mi X WELL CASE.
Detective Metullongli's Experience
WilhI'rel'er's Murderer While
He Was la Jail.
Sr. Louis, Mo., May 21. The rumor
that a witness, who is said to have
seen Maxwell make an rtU-mpt to
niurd- r Preller In lioston, previous to
arrival of either of them in this citv,
would testify in Maxwell's case, drew
a larger crowd to tho Criminal Court
this morning than has been present at
anytime eiwo the opening of the
case, but their desire for the sensa
tional had up to nsmi not been grati
fied, for tho testimony taken this
morn'ng differed but little from that
of previous days.
A. A. MEIX1KII,
a druggist testified thot Maxwell, ac
companied by a man whom he Mip
jiohc.1 was Preller, had come to his
store on Kaster Sunday, 1HK5, at about
1 o'clock in the afternoon, and
called for tomething to quiet the
nerves. Witnecs preoared a mixture
and gave it to the defendant. The
mnn whom he supposed was Preller
purchase' several toilet articles and
paid for them, exhib ting at the time
a large amount of money. Haw the
two mnn af erward at u (igar stand in
the Southern Hotel buying cigars
Preller paid that bill also. Cross
examination developed nothing new.
A. Al'OUST 1IBNNKTT
testified that tho defendant came to his
shooting gallery on the evening of
Kastt-r Sunday about 0:30 o'clock and
shot at a target several times. His aun
was unsteady, and he seemed nervous
and excited ; also appeared to be under
tlieiiillucnce of liquor.
TUB srl'KKINTSNOKNT OF TI
IE MO XI. I' K,
to which Prrller's dead
tikcn, was recalled, and testified that
the lip of the deceased appeared as if
a heavy black moustache had been
shaven from it. A clerk in tho morgue
corroborated this statement.
c. A. niHiior,
ono.of the attorneys for tho prosecu
tion, testified that heexamineds ortly
a Iter Prellor's body had been discovered
tho personal ell'ects found in the
trunks left at the hotel by Maxwell,
and found, among other things, a
copy of Co per's Physician's VaJo
Mecuni. The book was marked on
page J2, which described Clover's
method for the administration of
chloroform. Witness also found a
bottlo entailing chloroform among
Maxwell's abandoned effects.
TUB SENSATIONAL TKS'l'IMONV 01' TUB
not that, however, wh'ch the thronged
court-room expected to hear, was
given by J. F. MuCullougli, a detec
tive who, under the direction of De
tective Furlong, District Attorney
Clover and his assistant, McDona d.
forged acheckon an Eastern house and
n esented it at c no of the city banks.
Ho was arretted and placed in jail and
ass gned a cell adjo ning that of Max
well. Ho testified that immediately
after his incarceration he introduced
himself to Maxwell and worked him
self into his confidence, and about ten
days afterward ho became cngiged in
a conversation with Maxwell about
the hitter's case. Durinir this nonver-
sation the defendant told the witness
that tho on'y point in his case about
wincli tie felt une rtain and uneasy
was that concerning the monev. lie
BUM that if lie could onlv nrovn t.lmr.
he had plenty of money when Preller
came 10 ft. iahiw, tie would have no
anxiety about a speedy acquittal. Tho
witness ottered to fix t'uit all right,
but told ihe defendant that he must
know all about the case or he eonl.l
do nothing. The witness added that
Maxwoll then made a free and full
onfession of all particulars of the
case, beginning with his tirHtaequaint
ance with Preller, how on shipboard
ho noticed Preller had in his posses
s on a largo amount of money, how
tliey separated in lioston, Preller go
ing to Philadelphia mid Maxwell coin
ing to St. Louis. The defendnnt in
this confession said that only Friday
night, nfter Preller joined him in this
city, he told him (Maxwell) thai it
would bo impossible for him to pay
the defendant's way to Auckland,
whither they had arranged to go to
gether. This, said the defendant to
witness, argered him greatly and ho
determined to then "fix him" for his
meanness. On the following night ho
and Preller werosittingin the former's
roon, when the latter complained of
severe pa ns in his side. Maxwell
said, "Oh, I can fix that nil r ght, 1
have treated such cases before." He
then injected hypodermically into his
friend's arm a sullicieiit amount
of morphine to render h;m un
conscious; after he had b'en in triat
condition for some time, ho bound a
ch th completely saturated with
chloroform about his victim's head,
"and this," ho confessed to the wit
ness, "ended tho business," He then
secured all of Prellor's mniey, about
fSOO in all, besides tho most of his
valuable per onal effects, and planned
his escape, the details of which are so
Mr. McDonald then brought the
witness back to the arrangement to
have witness sw, ar that he had money
when he left lioston. He asked Max
Wrll what ho wauted. Maxwell ex
plained that he wanted the witness to
prove ttiat lie had a large buhi of
money before he left. Boston. Max
well said the witnrss would ,siv that
they Ii-mI met him in a cluh-r om at
Young's II tol, and had called ut his
room. They could state " tlmtMhev
wero with him, and that on the d ty
he left Boston they dropped into
Murphy's to take a drink and Max
well treated; that he had a la go roll
of bills, and one of them suggested
that he was carele s in carrying bis
bills so loosely in his pocket, and
they could swear that thev saw $"0U
or KiOO in bills, he didn't care much
what The two men then agree t on
the manner ol making up the story of
posting the witness's alleged friends
how to testify It was first sug
gested that the two friends be intro
duced to Maxwell's attorney, and then
brought into jail to see him, but this
was dropped. Maxwell said he m gh'
get bond and get out, so it was agreed
that they should arrange for the meet
ing by fixing certain means of identi
fying each other. On a card Maxwell
wrote "Frank DinglVlder" with "2v."

witness explained th.it ' 2 w." meant

into to pice s.Maxwell taking ore
and putting it into his drawer in h:s

The witness had a card on one side of

on tho other "1508 Washington ave

cards were shiwn by the witness 1

"Did Maxwell ever say anything to
you about chloroform being the best
method for killing a man ?"
"A few days after 1 got in jail a man
was shot -Dr. Coates, I believe. The
prisoner said that if h had a man to

After the conclusion of McCul
lough's testimony, the court adjourned
until 2 o'clock, when his cross exami

hard to arrive at. The revenue from
Paul Gladstone and Roderigo alone at
8 per cent, per annum w juld give

won the special kennel orizs at St.

Of old Chatnpioa Gladstone, the sire
oi ram uiadstone and toe grandsire of
Roderigo, too much cannot be said.
He is now ten years old and must soon
in the nature of things pass away. We
d mbt if a grander dog ever lived. He
is the sirs of more field trial winners
than anydog'ia the Union, and has
himself won in several field trials and
a number of btnch shows. He was
retired from the field and bench sev

ha knowi of
Winter-smith's Chill Cure.
Ornci or tii Coraiaa-JooNAL,
Dr. Winterimith. Sir I jaivi a rule 1 hava
obaerved for maDy years, the value of your
remedy prompting me to aay. in reel? to
your requeit, what I know of your Chill
Cure. Tbe private aimiran?ei f its 'fficacy
I hail, a-uu the good rcaulu of its effects I
bad obferved on Mr. R. W. Meredith, who,
f,r nioro than fifteen yoara, bad been fore
man ot my offlce, induced me to test it in
my family. The results have been entirely
satiaiHClory. The first odf was of two
jean' standing, in which I believe every
known remedy had been tried with tempo
rary re liel-tbo chills returniue: periodically
and with treiciriRly increased severity.
Your euro broke rhrj at once, arid there has
been no recurrence of tliem f, r more than
six months. The other -aie was ot a milder
form, anil yielded more readily to other
remedies: but the chills would return at in
tervals until your medicine was used, since
which time, now se7eral months, they have
entirely disapneared. from t'le opportu
nity I have had to judire, I do not hesitate to
express my belief that your Chill Cure is a
valuable specific and perlorms all yoa
promise tor it. Resuertfully,
