MURPHY AND HIS TEN DOLLARS.
An Adroit Young Man Tried
On a Serious Charge.
Commencement of the October Term
of tbe Supreme Court.
Proceedings Yesterday ln the Various
Tribunals—Judge Wade Scores »
James H. Murpby was on trial in the
United States district court yesterday
upon a charge of passing counterfeit
silver dollars at Fresno Flats in the fall
of 1891. The jury was partially em
paneled Saturday last, and was com
pleted yesterday morning. The trial
lasted all the afternoon and when court
adjourned the arguments of J. B. Dun
lap, counsel for the defendant, and U. S.
District Attorney M. T. Allen were com
pleted. Judge Ross then announed th at
the case will be given to the jury this
A number of witnesses were present
from Fresno Flats and testified in the
case during the trial. Among them
were several bartenders who received
some ol the counterfeit dollars Murphy
is charged with passing. The dollars
themselves, seven in number, were dis
played in evidence, and proved to be a
reasonably good imitation of the dollar
of our daddies. Murphy, who-had been
living out on the Flats, came to town
the day he is alleged to have com
mitted' the crime, and spent the
day and night in measurable riotous
living. He bought drinks for himself
and others, played poker and went to a
dance. The witnesses testified that he
paid in dollars almost in very instance
and took the change. One witness swore
that he had no money when he came to
town, and another testified that when
he took one of the dollars for drinks he
thought it bad, and marked the coin,
asserting to Murphy that he believed it
was counterfeit. The latter replied that
he supposed be, the defendant, made it,
as everybody said he had. The testi-'
mony waa very clear and direct in al
most every instance.
The defendant, when he took tbe
stand entered into an adroit and plausi
ble statement, in which he claimed that
he had not knowingly passed any coun
terfeit money. He attempted to account
for all tbe money he had that day, and
his testimony aimed to establish the
point that other people might have
passed the bad coins instead of himself.
His attorney, before the taking of tes
timony began, moved that the court in
struct the United States attorney to
elect under which of tbe nine counts in
the indictment be would prosecute.
This motion the court denied, when
Mr. Dun lap entered the plea that his
defendant had been once in jeopardy,
which was also denied, and tbe trial
went on, as stated above.
The plea of jeopardy brings up the
Erevioua history of this defendant, and
is two trials for murder at Fresno,
which the government could not got
into tbe evidence upon this trial. Mur
phy has had a career around Fresuo
Flats which the government officers
have been investigating for months.
Some little time before his alleged
crime in passing counterfeit money, he
came down from San Francisco and got
in with a man named McKay. They
were aronnd Fresno Flats for awhile,
when, one day, a heavy box arrived by
express for McKay. He took it out of
the office, and it waa not' long after this ,
that counterfeit dollars began to appear
in that neighborhood. Murphy's arrest
on a charge of counterfeiting followed, ,
the complaint being first made out in ,
the state court. It was removed from ,
thence to the federal court, the original
complaint being dismissed. It was on
this action that Murphy pleaded that he
had once been in jeopardy.
To return to Murphy and his partner,
McKay. Murphy was let out on bail,
after tbe counterfeiting charge had been
made against him. In the meantime,
McKay and others had located a mining
claim six or eight miles north of the
Flats. One day Murphy was talking
with some fellows in town, and the sub
ject of McKay's claim came up. There
was a good deal of jocular conversation,
in which Murphy was prominent, and
he finally proposed that they should go ,
out there and, as a joke, pretend to jump
the claim. The others fell in with the ,
idea, among them being a man who bad ,
a rifle. On the road out Murphy sug
gested that he carry the gun, and when '
they arrived at the camp he had it.
They surrounded the camp, and with
considerable noise called on McKay to ;
come out of his cabin. He did so. Mur
phy either was or pretended to be quite ,
drunk, and in flourishing the rifle it
went off. In some manner it went off
twice, and the second shot killed Mc- ,
Kay. Of course the boon companions .
were exceedingly shocked, and Murpby !
either waa or pretended to be the most
distressed of them all at the tragic end .
of his former partner. . They had not
been on very good terms after Murphy's j
arrest, and the killing caused much ex- ,
citement. Murphy was arrested for
murder, and on his first trial the jury .
disagreed. The second trial resulted in
his acquittal. The theory of his defense
was that tbe shooting waa purely acci
The district attorney endeavored to :
get some of this history into the case, .
but it was not admitted. The govern
ment officers have worked bard on the
case; none more energetically than N.
S. Harris of San Francisco, ib the se
cret service branch of the government,
and an expert on counterfeiting. They
have a theory that a certain mining
shaft near Fresno flats would reveal the
existence of the mysterious box received
by McKay before his death ,and the coun
terfeiting outfit. But the shaft is 90
feet deep, and 15 feet of water stands in
it, which has covered up the traces of
any Buch articles, and the water has
never been pumped out. Altogether
tbe history surrounding the defendant
is an interesting one.

I Judge Wade Denies a New Trial in an
Yesterday morn inn; Judge Wade, in
department three of the superior court,
denied a motion for a new trial in the
case of J. T, Richey vs. J. G. McMichael.
The court had rendered a judgment in
the caee heretofore, and explained bis
views of the defendant very fully in an
opinion which be filed in the cause.
The plaintiff and defendant were inti
mate friends, Richey living in Kentucky,
and McMichael, who formerly lived in
the same place, in Los Angeles county.
In 1888 the defendant represented to the
plaintiff that he owned an undivided
third interest in some lots in the town
of Fairview; that a man named Buell
owned a third, and Hare, a former fel
low-townsman of theirs; the remaining
third. McMichael represented that the
lotß were valuable for speculative pur
poses, and desired Richey to buy Buell's
third interest, so that the friends might
own it nnd handle it together. He rep
resented that the lowest Buell would
take was $2750. Mr. Richey and a friend
named Curtice agreed to take the inter
est, and pay one-third cash, the balance
in six and twelve months. The defend
ant informed Richey that Buell must
have hall down, and that he had bought
the interest for his friend, and he could
pay him on his own terms. Richey and
Curtice afterwards forwarded McMichael
$916.66, May 21, 1888.
McMichael now showed his hand as
a disinterested friend, by selling Buell's
interest to another man for $1875. He
never had total Buell about Richey and
Curtice, but pocketed the money.
The court scored bis action unmerci
fully, and held him np as a swindler in
plain and unmistakable English. The
suit was brought by Richey, who had
taken Curtice's claim by assignment, to
have his money refunded. The defend
ant, for a defense, claimed that the
action brought, was not the proper
remedy, and that Richey should first
have relinquished all his right, title and
interest, but the court said that it was
not a suit for recisßion, bat to recover
money obtained by fraud and deceit.
A complaint was filed yesterday be
fore Justice Austin, by Rosa Cook,
against* Nanny Villaloboa, charging her
with having stolen from her a hair-oil
bottle, a doll and a silk handkerchief.
Defendant's motion to diseolve an in
junction, in tbe case of Bristol vs. An
derson, was denied by Judge Wade.

Smith, and his bail fixed at $2000..
Ah Loy is on trial before Judge Smith,
charged with shooting at Wong Uai, in
Chinatown, August 7th last. The pros
ecution closed up its case yesterday, and
the trial will be resumed this morning.
Frank Bartlett, a boy 12 years old,
with a penchant for petit larceny, was
before Judge McKinley on a charge of
incorrigibility. The court remanded
him to his father for a week, when he
is to be brought before him Bgain.
The divorce suit of Mrs. E. A.
Brewend vs. H. E. Brewend was up be
fore Judge McKinley, on a demurrer,
yesterday, and he took it under advise
ment. The case will be a very sensa
tional one when it comes to trial.
A motion for alimony was submitted
in Judge Clark's court in the divorce
suit of Grimminger vs. Gritnniinger.
The trial of the suit of Mrs. M. Wil
son, to recover $4000, the alleged value

' Hacked to Pieces and Burned.
Mobilk, Ala., Oct. 10.—A horrible
tragedy occurred at the plantation of
Richard L. Johnson, in Monroe county,
Friday night, which was not heard of
here> until today. Johnson and his
18-year-old daughtei were hacked to
pieces with an ax, and then cremated. '
A gang of desperate negroes are sup
posed to have committed the horrible
crime. Seven negroes have been
arrested, and the people of the neigh
borhood are searching the country
round about for men who are thought
to have taken part in the awful affair.
The first known about the crime was
at midnight Friday, when neighbors
were attracted to Johnson's home by the
fire. When they reached there the
bouse was burning to the ground and
the charred bodies of Johnson and his
daughter were found in the ruins.

The Newsboy's i-limti o.s.
The words of Shakespeare, "One 1

newsboy who sits in a wheel chair on
the corner of Fifth avenue and Twenty
third street. He first made his appear- 1
ance there about two years ago, and his ]
wan, pinched face plainly indicated
that he had long been an invalid.

him. They help him fold and arrange '
his papers. On warm days they take

One day during the late hot spell a j
ragged urchin with a bundle of papers
under his arm, barefooted and dirt be
grimed and carrying a tin pail in his '
hand, walked up to the cashiers window
in a store not far from where the cripple
sits. Rapping on the window he at
tracted the attention of the cashier, and
as ho stood on his tiptoes he handed in
his pail, while a smile as bewitching as
any society belle is capable of encircled
his dirty face, displaying a set of teeth
pearly white and as beautiful as nature
could form them. His large, lustrous,
sparkling black eyes caught those of the
cashier, and he said, "Say, mister, der
lame bloke what sells papers in de wagon
on der corner wants a drink of ice water."
As the man who handles tho oatih
passed out the pail 6f water the juvenile j
remarked, "Tanks, mister; you know j

THE TWO CANDIDATES.
How the "Plain People" Regard Cleve
land and Barrison*
Mr. Harrison, whatever may be his
other qualities, clearly does not awaken
enthusiasm. Even those who have re
ipect for 'i< s shrewdness, and who are
profoundly convinced that 'his cause is
the right cause, do not feel any great
confidence in him or any attachment at
all to his personality.
The most confirmed Republicans con
fess that their cause might be in better
hands, and regret that their candidate
does not inspire the feeling of admira
tion and loyalty that is so potent a fac
tor in popular elections. Mr. Cleveland,
on the other hand, does inspire a very
deep sentiment of personal trust and re
gard, and, what is very important, he
inspires this sentiment most strongly
among the plain people, the average
citizens of the republic. These men
reason very simply that the man who
has shown himself unselfish, sincere,
Btanch, is a man "to tie to." They may
not understand all his views. They may
differ from some of them. But they feel
that here is a man who will form views
for himself, will form them fairly, as he
thinks tho right requires, and will sus
tain them at any cost.
It was this deeply seated feeling that
forced the nomination of Mr. Cleveland
upon his party. And curiously enough,
now that he is nominated, it is this feel
ing that makes him intensely popular
with a great body of Democrats, who
before had been associated with thoso
opposed to his nomination. All trust
worthy repon.i agree that the Democrats
.of New York city and Brooklyn are to
day among the firmest, the most eager
and the most energetic supporters of Mr.
Cleveland. With a just cause and a
leader who is the very embodiment of
that cause, the Democracy is making an
aggressive campaign. It could make no
other, and it bids fair to win because it
deserves to win.—New York Times.
How VTanamaker Got There.
Republican organs are accustomed to
treat lightly the charge made by the
Democrats that the present postmaster
general was put in the cabinet as a re
ward for his services in raising money
for election purposes four , years agu
But the truth of this charge is clearly
establislted by the admissions of Ihe
very men who helpxl Wtnamaker to
raiso that famous $-'00,000 a few day*
before the election,
The rich manufacturers of Philadel
phia who contributed most of the great
corruption fund for Quay's use, an?
men there of the Philadelphia Manufac
turers' club, an organization of high
protectionists. The organ of tho club is
The Manufacturer. Soon after Wana
maker's appointment as postmaster gen
eral this journal said:
"It is to the men that give the cash
that a large, if not the largest, share of
success is due. We make the assertion
that the money contributed by this club
last year had more influence upon the
result of the national election than all
the skill, the ingenuity, the labor and
the wire pulling of all the professional
politicians in Philadelphia. Wo believe
this proposition to.be capable of positive
proof. If, therefore, control of patron
age is rightly the reward of victorious
effort, the right of this club to name the
federal officeholders of Philadelphia rests
upon solid ground."
They accepted Wanamaker's appoint
ment as the reward for tho fat which
was fried out of them, and did not hesi
tate to publish the fact. And the Re
publican party used to boast that it was
the "party of high moral ideas 1"
Old Uickory an a Protectionist.
Tho impudence of tho Republicans in
this campaign is far above par. They
are even claiming Andrew Jackson as a
protectionist! Their desperate attempt
to extract a few grains of comfort from
tho result of the Vermont and Maine
elections has shown them to have the
capacity of being "contented wi' little,"
but what comfort can they find in the
following words from Old Hickory's
farewell address: "The corporations
and wealthy individuals who are en
gaged in large manufacturing establish
ments desire a high tariff to increase
their gains. Designing politicians will
support it to conciliate their favor and
to obtain the means of profuse expendi
ture for the purpose of purchasing in
fluence in other quarters. Do not allow
yourselves, my fellow citizens, to be
misled on this subject. The federal
government cannot collect a surplus for
such purposes without violating the
principles of the constitution and as
suming powers which have not been
granted. It is, moreover, a system of
injustice, and if persisted in will inev
itably lead to corruption and must end

be made to one of the old regulation

Alarmed at Yankee Progress.
The leading commercial and financial
journals of Germany are in a state of
nervous alarm caused by the onward
march of American commerce into Cen
tral and South America. The commer
cial bodies of that country have come to
the conclusion that the greatest danger
to European interests lies in the "new
departure" or commercial arrangements
which this country has negotiated with
the Latin-American Republics and the
West Indian islands. German newspa
pers view with great satisfaction the
treaty recently negotiated by Germany
with Colombia, from which they antici
pate favorable results, expecting to
counteract by it the inroads that the re
cent efforts on the part of the United
States have made in their commerce.
The police authorities at Berlin have
recently been conducting, a crusade
against "doctors" who use bogus Amer

ognized institution, and where this has
not proved to lie the case proceedings
have been taken and the offenders sen
tenced to pay a fine.
