nearly half a hundred emploj'es of our three stores and of the
hundreds of skilled shoemakers who have shaped and fash

ating such a furore this season among the Washington Shoe

Judjje Miller Decided Qulglpy Coul'i
"ot Re Tried for Mnylieui.
In the police court yesterday Edward
Quigley, the horse dealer, who is alleged
to have bitten off the ear of Harry D. Nash,
the saloonkeeper, at SiMli aud K streets
southwest, was arraigned, charged with
mayhem. Mr. Nash's dismembered car
was brought into court in a bottle of
alcohol as evidence against Quigley.
After Judge Miller had examined a num
ber of authorities, he decided that as a
poition of Nash's auricular appendage
still remained on his head, the accusation
of mayhem could not be sustained. The
charge was, therefore, changed to assault
and battery. Attorney Campbell Carring
ton for Quigley then demanded a jury
trial and the case went over. The defend
ant was released on $500 bonds.

ffiRS.BALL GIYisN HER CHILD
The Habeas Corpus Proceedings
Decided by Judge Cole.
Charges Made Against JJoth Parents.
Hall Granted Perintfesiim to
See Ilia Daughter.
Spectators In Judge Cole's court yester
day afternoon witnessed the unusual spec
tacle of a pretty curly-haired child romp
ing about the room and climbing around
the Judge's chair -yhile court was la ses
sion. The child was Mary Magdalen Ball,
three and a halt ycais old, and whose
mother, Mrs. Fannie Ball, brought habeas
corpus pioccedings against her husband
for the possession of the little one. The
husband is Horace M. Ball, a conductor on
the Columbia Railroad.
The seoslon of yesterday lasted for more
than two hours, and there were many ugly
charges made against both the father and
the mother. The latter Is a pi city little
woman, who left Ball last August because
he drank and treated her cruelly, she says.
She now lives with her parents and wants
to keep the child with them. Judge Cole
concluded the case by giving Mary Magda

The first two witnesses to be examined
were Mr. and Mrs. Edward Dunn, No. 023

Dunn was appointed recently the cus

pending a termination of thehnbeascorpus

child, under the pietext that he was going
to buy her some candj , to the heme of
his brother iu Fairfax county, Va. 'Jliej
both admitted that they l.ad never liked
Ball very well.
Mrs. Ball testified that her, husband 1 i-A
been a drinking man since their marriage.
He had to be brought home by friendo
when he was drunk, she said, and un
more than one occasion he had beat and
slapped her. Once lie broke up the Hove

that the latter and Mrs. Ball were at one
time locked in a bathroom together, where
they had sought shelter when be came
around To her lawyer, Joseph Shilling
ton, the witness admitted that her hus
band had accused her of such condut, but
she denied it. She said that he forced her
to leave his house on that account. He
promised to support the child, bat not her,
she said. She denied any Intimacy with
"Were you not in the bathroom with Ed
wards?'' asked Mr. Lipscomb.
"Yes. It was at the home of Mrs. Mason,
where Mr. Edwards boarded, and where I
went to sew. 1 was there one day la-fc
August, when my husband came to the
house I waslnthesewlngroom, and when
I heard him I ian to the bathroom and
locked the door. It so happened that Mr.
Edwards was in the room washing his face
at the time, but I did now know it until I
bad locked the door."
"How did your husband find out you
were in there?"
"He got on a chair and looked over the
Two letters were produced which the
wife admitted writing to Edwards. -One
or them ended "yours lovingly." Mrs.
Ball said she wrote the letter, but did not
close it in those words.
A large number or other witnesses v.-ere
presented by Mr. Shillington and the
testimony upon Mr. Lipscomb's cross-examination
was at many times so enter
taining that the crier was more than once
compelled to rap for order- Mrs. Mary
J. Forney, an aged lady, testified that
she had known Mrs. Ball since the latter
was a child, and that she thought the
mother should have the child.
"Are you a mother?" asked Mr. Lips
"No, but I am a stepmother and have
raised two children."
Mrs. Gertiude Ball, No. 1510 K street
northeast, is a young lady with one child.
She explained why the mother sboulfl have
the child in a manner that would have
proven a worthy treatise for the Mothers'
Congress. Her husband, too, Is employed
on the street railwajs. She testified
that it was poor employment for a man
who wanted to be the guardian or his
"Why, I hardly know I have a bus
band," said she. "You know a father
likes a child well when it is rirst born and
he will kiss it and fondle it, hut it often
does not last long."
"Mothers love their children, don't they?"
asked Mr. Lipscomb.
"Indeed, they do."
"So do fathers."
"No, they don't."
There were a number or witnesses to
testify to the character of Mrs. Ball, while
a number said that the father was a drink
ing man. Just as Mr. Shillington offered to
place Edwards on the stand, as his final
witness, the court announced that he was
not needed. Judge Cole said that the
fact that the mother might have com
mitted adultery with some one man, would
not control his judgment. Of course, it
the mother was living the lire of an
abandoned woman, he said, or if the
husband's attorney sought to show that, he
would listen to further testimony. There
were abundant authorities to warrant him
in holding, however, that a child of such
tender years as the one in court, might
be kept with the mother so long as it
was not surrounded by evil influences.
Under the ruling, Mr. Lipscomb did not
attempt to place any witnesses on the
stand. The child was given to the custody
of the mother, and the father Is to have
the privilege of seeing it at all reasonable
'ntioniil Geoernpbic Society.

TRYiHG TO KEEP IT SECRET
Tariff Bill Framers "Worried Over
Schedules Becoinin": Known.
Demoerutie ilembers of Wars und
3Ienn3 Committee Suspected of
Aiding Newspaper 3Ieu.
The Republican Representatives who
have been working at the Cochran on the
new tariff bill are said to be havisg a
good deal of trouble with themselves in
an effort to keep from tne public the re
sults of their labors until a report saal!
have been made to the House.
Some of their Iiemocratlo associates on
the Ways and Means Committee are be
lieved to be taking a good deal of pleasure
in aiding newspaper reprebentatives tc
reach such schedules as have been prac
tically completed. They are not them
selves admitted to the conferences of the
Republicans and so have a personal inter
est and curiosity to know what has been
done. While they cannot undertake to
get the Information, except as it may be
graciously given them by the Republican!
it is believed hints have been receivec
from them indicating in what direction
the attempt to secure the information de
sired is most likely to be successfuL
On the other hand there is wiid r te
a considerable diergence in opinion as
to the need of strict secrecy- Xo im
portant use outside of publication in tho
newspapers apparently can be made ot
these trial schedules, and several mem
bers are said to regard the surveilance
proposed as valueless if not absurd.
Mr. Dingley is an old newspaper man
and he has become distrustful lately that
some of bis associates would turn over
their copies of the bill to newspaper cor
reNpondence. His. device for detecting
and preventing such a course is to Hunt
the number of copies ot the hill to one
Tor each niemler and to make frequent
calls for a show down.
It is said that Gen. Grosvenor was al
most caught yesterday when Mr. Dingley
asked for an exhibition of bills for the
nominal purpose of making a trifling
change. Grosvenor faltered out that he
bad left his copy at his hotel- There
was a sbout or derision from the other
members, who felt that Grofivenor would
be a gcod scapegoat for the tull abstracts
of the lull which they had been communi
cating to their local correspondents. Gen.
Grosvenor finally requested permission to
return to his room and produce his copy,
wlitrh. after some delay, he was enabled
