MUU lllU UUlUlHllllllS UIIVO lUiriXIUCCll a
great tunas of testimony tuken in I-ondon,
Juiglund, to prove tint lr. Howard, (ho
plaiuiiff, a doctor of divluity oud wry
nblo Baptist preacher, ia rcully a son of
John Hewlett, of Kdmonton, London,
Knglund. The suit ia for JoO.OOO, brought
by Dr. Howard against thirteen lending
uiembcra of tlio First Baptist Church, at
Jutksou, of which ho was tutor. a few
years ago, and three newspapers. The
libel complained of was an attack on
Howard's character of a most virulent
description, accusing him of having as
sumed a fuUo name, to hide- his paat record,
which wns very fully given. The charges
agniust liiiu wero of a very remarkublo
nature, and included references to
escapades with women, especially
with a married womuu with whom
bo cloped, allegniiuus of undue inti
inucy with negroes in South Carolina,
and of infamous character generally. To
cxobiin how the action came to be
br .flit, it should be slated that Dr. How
ard was appointed pastor of tlio First P.up
list Church in this city. His brilliancy
' and ability stiecdily increased tlio mem
bership and tilled tho church, and for a
tiuio all went well, the doctor being the
most popular man in tho city, llotuur
ricd tho daughter of a lending cltixcn ani
w.-ts ccoernlly respected. Tiieu aroso a
trouble in tbo church, sotno prominent
niembersol which, suld they hud received
information showing Howard to bo au
iuiptistor. Howard was akcd to resign by
five deacons, and Dually seceded with about
ixly members Slid established tho Ccutntl
lluptist Church. Ho also commenced tho
publication of the fret JltiM ncwp:icr,
Ju w hich ho criticised tho conduct of the
liiptibt Uuivcrsity, of which bo had been
a professor. Then the libel was published.
Tho Central Baptist Church held meetings,
and exonerated tboir pastor trout blame,
and suit was brought for libel. Tho
most strenuous exertions have been tnudo
by both parties to work up pleas of Justifi
cation, plaintiff trying to justify hi con
duct and tho defendants thoir alleged
libelous statement. Tho plniutifl has
crossed tho ocean four times in scurch of
evidence, and tho defendants havo had
attorneys aud agents, not only in F.ng
land, but also in India. 1'l.iimill admits
that prior to his con version he i care
Its as to his moral. Ho says that ho
met Howletl in tho South aud summed
his nsmo for a time. To prove, however,
that he really is Howard he obtained depo
sitions from sn alleged brother living in
Calcutta, and from other relatives of the
alleged Howsrd fauiily in Kngtand. The
tlelcuse employed detectives .to limit Dp
t.'ieso witnciso, but lulled to find them,
aud the Court made an order, prior to tlio
libel suit being called Up for trial, exclud
ing the depiction from thncaso. 1'laintiff,

attacks as to character, and aro rnlllng
witnesses front place In the South In which
Dr. Howard lived uudertho name of How

Howard taught school and afterward
studied law and practiced at the bar. He
was then converted, joined tho lluptist
Church, was orlained, commenced to
preach aud cutuo to Jackson.
At the opening uf the court this morning
the cniM-ex.iminntion of tiio witness
Crosby, of South Caniliua, was n-aiL Tlio
vldenco against thn plaintill's rhnr
scter was much shaken. 'Iho charge

wns found to 1st lNiel on tho furt tli il
while Howard wns teaching srhool ho had

house. .Much amusemeiil was created by
the rending of answer of wituessea to lu's
Miliiicnl creed. He s iid he wasat'u-ocr-ation

witness that he had run away from homo
when a boy, bad fjno to -s. killed a
. man, mid had bcn wwked in Chins,
wbci he bought two Chineso women.
Whuu plalutilf loft tho nelgbborbood be
gave witness and his wifo a lock
of his hair to remember him
by. rinintitr said that he had cut
it ofT for his lady love, but that ho had
quarreled with her ami would liko w itnofs
and his wifo to keep it in remembrance.
Both witness nnd his wifo were colored
and they ran n farm. Thoro was only one
room in the house, while plnintitr boanled
with them, but they put a curtain Around
his bod for him. Ibey all had their food
at tho snino table, mid more than ouce
witness and plainlill' occupied tho same
bed. On cross-examination witness said
plnintitr loft tho hotiso of Crosby, tho
whito mnn, when Mrs. Crosby was con
fined, but slaved afterward. K-voral
white men had slept at witness's home
and boarded with him at different times.
Witness thought the word clergyman
meant county or city boss. Plaintitf told
hi in his father wus something of that
kind. Ptuintitr associated freely with a
man named l'udgctt, who hud been in tho
Counsel for the plaintiff objected to this
testimony, on the ground tluit Padgett
wss a brother of tho Democratic ltupre
sentntivo. Muuy good men had been in n
penitentinry. Tho Court held that how
ever thut might bo, one of the allegations
in tlio libel associating witti convicted
criminals aud tho cvidonco must go for
what it was worth.
Tho next evidence read was that of C.
C. Stovens, a lawyer and school teacher,
living near Waltcrboro, S. t'., whilo the
plnintitr lived there, l'laintitf was then a
Kepublican, and taught a negro school.
He associated with uneducated negroes,
lived with them, slept with them and ate
at tlio sumo table with them. Ho had no
social standing ss a man of reectnbility.
His general character was bad.
Uane Sauls, another farmer in the same
neighborhood, was tho next w itness. Ho
said plaintiff bounled with him somo timo.
l'laintitf often talked about his past life.
Ik'snidlio was a native of Kngluud, and
that hia father was buried in Westminster
Abbey. riaintilT said his real nnmu wus
Howard but that he took the name of
Howlett because of a dispute with his
father. I'luintitl had a bad reputation in
the neighborhood for honesty and integ
rity. 'iho deposition. of W. A. Grlffe! was
noxt read. Itdenll with plaiutilf's con
duct while in Kiuth Carolina, and ac
cused him of having iisioeiHted with ne
groes and having attended a caucus in
the interest of a colored candidate. Tho
plaintilf 's general reputation was bad as
to honor, integrity and chastity, ho having
run away w ith another man's wifo. l'luin
tilf wss a Republican at that timo and
took a prominent part in tho election.
He had no social standing whatever in tho
nichborhood. Tbo county was only par
tially scttleil, Willi but lew railroads.
Witness himself hail been in tho South
Caiolinn licuislaturc threo times, twice as
a Kepublican and onco ns a IViiiocrnU
Io cross examination, witness said people
mostly thought well ol thn plaintilf except
while he was iu olliee asTrud Justice.
Jaser Kiev's dexwition wast reail next.
It corroborated the evidence of tho last
Winn's. Ho deerilied the Itepublic.in
convention at Waltcrboro as n dirty crowd,
with only two white men in it. Ono ol
these was plaintilf, who, after tho conven
tion, walked away arm in arm with a
negro. I'htiutilf was admitted to tho
bar and had a very few unlmortaiit case.
His Handing with the bar was not C''d.
He left the neighborhood pntu sudieiilv.
Witni'ss wus never iuliiusto with phuulsir,
but knew his reputation to be unenviable
snd bad. In crs examination witness
did not deny that prominent Democrat
wero In tho liumtol attending tlio Kepuo
lican convention and trying to create
splits unions tho nrgroes. Witness's
father was onco Sherill of tho countv and
mudo default w bile iu ollico, mid a brolhrr
of his was verv disKoliito snd died in the
woods froiiifle ellecls of a spree.
Tha next evidence read was that of Marv

By the Special Cronin Grand Jury
As Ons of Those Implicated in the
Murder of Dr. Cronin,
Sensational Rumors That Ha Had
Made a Confession Untrue.
Ho Does Acknowledge, That Ho Is
Burke, and Not Dclaney. .
It Is Firmly Believed That He Is One of
the Williams Men Wbo Rented the
Carlson Cottage, Where tbe
Murder Was Commlvtsd,
Ciiicaoo, III,, Juno 19. The special
Grand Jury In tho Cronin caw gnvo tho
first indication of results at noon today in
tho shiiio of an indictment against Martin
liurkoontwo coun'.s. Duike, alias Martin
lHilnney, otherwise called Frank William,
is indicted, (list for murder, aud socondly
for conspiracy with Coughlia, O'ttallivan
and Woodruff, for tho purposo of commit
ting murder. Application will at onco be
made to Gov. Fifor by an olllcer wbo is
now in Ppringllcld for requisition papers
for the extradition cf Burke. These pa
pers, properly attested, w ill be spread be
fore tho Mute Department at Washington,
and tho Secretary of State will ninko tho
formal request to tho Canadian Govern
ment for tho surrender and extradition of
Burke. The latter ia now in tho custody
of tho Chief of Police at Wlnuipcg, Mani
toba, and Chicago -olllcer and persons
havo been disputchod to the sccno to fur
ther identify him. It was only with re
luctance thnt tho Grand Jury this morning
returned an Indictment against Burke and
bad his partial IndeutiQcation by photo
graph been Iho only evidence aguinst him,
it is safo Io say thnt the request of Chief
Hubbard and State's Attorney Longo
neeker would havo been referred and an
indictment denied until tho Chicago co
plu hud proceeded to Winnipeg und clearly
indcnliticd the prisoner us ono of the
Williams brothers. The testimony uf
.Micliucl ciav.n, ol the Chicago r-cwer De
partment, who had known Burke, was
very conclusive, however, nnd it wns upon
his evidence that tho indictment was re
turned. Gavin testilied that ho had known
llurkufora long time; thut he had fre
quently heard the Intter boost of his friend
ship with P. O'Sullivan snd others of tho
siipcctc I parties, and that nn ono occa
sion Buiko had cxprvaaod his conviction
that Cronin sua an viiaiuy, if not a traitor,
to tho Irish cause.
It wss announced this afternoon thnt
no more iniliclmeii's would be returned
until tho jury was prepared to make a linal
report, and that llurko hsd hern indicted
at tin ttuio on thu uiiiwi plea of Chief
Hubbard and Mute' 'Attorney Long
neckcr, tiHiii rcprvs nt.sjim that it would
savo lime iu securing hi extradition.
Chief Hubbard, who at no limn enter
turned hope that Mansiey aud Maclion
abl, tho icw York snsjMM-ts, would bo
cerlilicd as accomplice in tlio murder,
pins hia fmlh Implicitly Io the llurko
theory. His efforts Io secure an Indict
ment lust evening wero renewed by a
personal pie to tho jurv this luorn
in if, mid it is chiefly lo Mr.
llubhurd's esrncst iustunces that
nn indictment noiv n-sis over Mnrtin
Burke. I pou Burke's known connection
w ith the cuv the Chief has tabili.bcd a
theory which ho conll'l"nlly Isdieve will
lead lo tho detection aud conviction of
every conspirator to the murder. Old
muu Cnrlson is positive in his Identifica
tion of Burku's photograph ss that of
Frank Williams, who rsnted Iho cottage,
and his wilu und son admit striking oinu
of ri-seuiblance, although not positive in
their Idctitilication. Martinw-n, tho ex
press driver, Is conll bul Unit Burke is the
mail who hired him to rumovo the lurui
turo from the Clurk street Hat to tho t'arl
rn cottage, nnd It is Ins conviction in this
resecl thut give birth to Iho belief that
the police are at least upon the riirbt track.
Justice Mahoucy wss In-fore tha Grand

Ciiicaoo, III , Juno 19. An entirely new
Cronin suspect is being looked for tonight.
His name is Michael Cooucy, and bo h&s
an oild sobriquet "Tho Fox."
Cooney and Burke are claimed to bo tho
two men who actually killed Cronin. Both
are Clun-na-Gnol men, members of Camp
No. 20. Cooney is a bricklayer by trade,
and Luko llurko cuuio ben fiotn Ireland
only a few years ago. Burko's number In
Cump No W wus 103 aud Cooney's 109.
Kuch is described as an euthuBiast on Irish
matters, nnd particularly bitter regarding
tho British spy system, which Kuuhly
their personal experience had given them,
as they considered, good cause to detest.
According to tho best Information ob
tainable tonight littlo hojie wns to bo en
tertained of thu arrest of Cooney imme
diately, if st all. There was a feeling, ap
parently, thnt ho had been given too long
a slart and wns already in somo safo re
treat. State's Attorney longcncrkcr al
lowed it to Isj in ferns I that ho bns two
witncFscs who will swear that Cooney and
Burke slept in the Carlson cottage several
days prior lo tho tragedy, and even that
tho two susiects were seen leaving tho cot
tage the (utnl night of May 4 at Hi'.X)
o' clock. Both are said lo have proceeded
to a saloon in tho vicinity and drank
Cooney' sobriquet U not given to him
becauso of any physical peculiarities.
"Tho Fox" is the name of a la mo us duty
of great length which Cooney was wont to
sing, and through w hich ho became some
what widely known. Tho information re
garding him, it should bo understood, is
not olliciul, but neither tho Chief uf I'olico
nor tho Mnto' Attorney, it i claimed,
deny the report ss given are correct

patch to the fWy AVirs from Wlmiijs g

cept his acknowledgment that be ia Mar
tin Burke, aud thut be lived In Chicago
and knew Cronin. Ho Is waiting lniia
ticntly for tho arrival of the Chicago of
ficers, who will be In town tomorrow after
noon. At Ihe request of Suirintendent
Hubbard, of Chicago, Police Chief Murray
has tnken tho prisoner out and bad hiui
photographed. Burke objected most
strongly, and tried lo argue the question
with the Chief all tho way to the gallery.
When be was being photographed Butke
moved a number ol times, ihe photog
rapher finally succeeded in gelling a shot
at him, snd so pro. rued sn excellent like
lies'. Copies wore mailed to Chicago pohcu
Arrangement have been inndii hereby

"It is importaut thut tho vital points ol
tho controversy should not bo obscured by
A wranglo over figures. Tho question is
not whether wo have carried more live
stock tbnu any ether company. We admit
that wo have. Tho executive board or
dered us, upon application of tho Alton
Company, to reduce our carryings. Tho
Alton Company cburgo Ihul'wo have dis
regarded their order, Chnirinnu Wulker
says that wn did not. We did not even
endeavor to obtuin delay by tho cxerciso
of our right uf appeal. While wo nro in
Ihe very process ol reducing our earn ings,
as ordered by tho executive board, the
Alton Company withdraws from the Asso
ciation on Ihe charge that wo have disre
garded tho order ol tbe cxecutivo (ward,
and also that we have otherwise violated
the agreement. This we deny, and claim
that such chsnros cannot fairly be mndo a
basis of withdrawal from Iho Association,
or held to bo good agniust any coiupuny
until tho simple and etlective means pro
