THE OFFENSE A MISDEMEANOR
"VV. F. Hnvpineyer, of Now YorU,
Testifies to Huviiiff Issued Chocks
Jn Purulent for Ct'rtuln JIuiui
Hcrlnts Purdhused by Dim From
a he first day's trial of Phillip McEl
hone, one of thcpartles accused of steal
ing valuable papers from the Congressional
Library, began yesterday morning in
criminal court, No 2, belore Justice
Bradley, closed at A o'clock last even
ing with the testimony of William F.
Ildvcmejer, the second witness culltd,
At the opening ot the trial In the morn
ing there was a protracted discussion
of a proposition as to whether or not the
three indictments against McEIhouu should
be consolidated, and of the question, also,
as to whether the offense should or
should not be classed as a felony If
of no more consequence than a misde
meanor, the counsel for dereuso ivould
have the right to challenge, but tLree
jurors or the panel; but If a rUony. they
ivould have ten challenges Tho court
held that it was a misdemeanor, the
cases were consolidated, aud the right
of the defense to challenge was restrict
ed to three. -
A R bpofford, the custodian ot tne
Congressional Library, was first called ua
a witness It came out in the course of his
testimou) that the abstracted manuscripts
were the property of the Government, and
that they were a part of what is known as
the "Petei Force Collection" of valuable
papers, for thu purchase of which Congress
voted an appropriation of $100,000, in
1S78. The papers were exhibited .n
court, and identitied by Mr Sporford. He
rceoguled those alleged to be in the haud
iv iitlng of Gen Washington, and said
he knew them to be so from compari
sons ot them with the well authenticated
autographs of the author of the papers.
He referred to Washington's dairy, the
one kept by him during the sessions of
the Constitutional Convention of 17S7, as
"the most precious of the collection." He
knew the letter, purporting to be from
Benedict Arnold 'to be genuine, for the
renbou that It Is the only one of the
date, July, 1780, known to be in ex
istence He IdVhttM that with the other
papers as belonging to the "Force Col
lection " When dressed by counsel to
btntc how he IdieVr.tliey were the same, Mr
Spofford fiuiilly'eiclalnicd 1
"I know It! because these defendants
stole them and sold them in New Yotk,
where they were afterward found '
An attcinpt'was made to show that Mr
Spofrord based hts Identltication ot the
papers upon tlie contents of a letter writ
ten by a Mi 'Benjamin, in New York, to
Senator Boat , but'he would not admit it
"Do you n6t''know, Mr Spoffoid,'' in
quired Mr. Shlllirigton, ' that there Is a
large collectidn of 'the Arnold letters in
Connecticut, tficitroperty or a lady there"''
"There Id dbuijtless a collection of Ar
nold Iclter.s, but riUt of that date,' he re
plied. Well, now',' Mr Spofrord,'' said Mr
Shllllngton, "I 'do not suppose Benedict
Arnold ever told you just how many Iet
tcrn he wrote In June, 1780 "
Mr Davis interjected a remark to the
erfect that thu comment by Mr Shilling
ton was dlsiespectful to the witness, and
The witness has Just testiried. your
honor, that there aie no other 'Arnolds'
or that kind outside of the Force collec
tion, and he Identifies them for that rea
son and because they were captured hi
New York "
Mr Shillington protested that he only
desired to have the witness to state a
Just and sufficient ten sun for his Identifi
cation "There Is something behind it,"
he added, "and I am after information "
"Misinformation, jou mean. I think I
know what you aie after, and I can tell
)ou that you have tlie wrong witness for
such questions as vou have piopounded "
wasMr Davis' lejoinder.
Mr Spoffoid was asked If, at an) -lire
befoi eor after thearrestsof the defendants,
his attention hnd been called to the papers
in question, with a lequest to Identify
them. The question was ruled out.
Mr. Haveinev , the next witness, is a
lesidcnt or New York city, and the man
to whom McEllinne and his alleged accom
plice, Lewi McKcuzie Turner, are said to
have sold the purloined manuscripts He
was called to identify the papers and to
testify ns to hls'negotintions with the ac
cused for the purchase Letters had passed
between them, and these were submitted
in evidence, together with the checks given
by Mi Bavemeyer in payment The coun
sel for the defense objected, and an ar
gument lcsulted There had not been a
sufficient foundation laid for their intro
duction, Mr. Shillington, snid, and the ex
amination of the witness touching those
points was objected to
Mr. ITavemeycr could not say that the
copies of the letteis taken trom his letter
book at home were accurate, and the intio
duction or these and the examination m
relation to them, were opposed by counsel
The District attorney then sought to show
that cei tain other papers, stolen fiom the
Library, butnotincludcdTn theindntmrnt,
were purchased of McElhone and Turner
by Havcmeyer, but this was objected to,
upon the grounds that they had no connec
tion with the issue.
Distilct Attorney Davis explained that
Sir. Hnvemeyor, was put upon the stand
bcrnre the Govjernn,.ent was leadyfor him
solely to enablfthim, if possible, to return
home tonight. By said it was in direct
connection, however, to show that other
manuscripts tbp.11 jthose specified in the
indictment, were sold by the accused
parties to SlrJJavjemcyer, as tending to
showtheintentof the accused The copies
of thelctteis tnk"euirom Mr Ilavemeyer's
book were not admitted, nor were the

And the muwer:
"To pay Mr. McElhone for certain manu
scripts purchased of him."
He was asked as to the letters purport
ing to have been written by McElhone to
him, one dated October 13, 1896, and the
others about that time He was asked if
he could identify them.
"Thev are addressed to me, and I do not
doubt that I ltcelved them," he said.
He was asked whether the copies taken
from the letter book were accurate, and
"I have no doubt "
"Do you know, sir, whether they are or
not?" Interrupted Mr. Shillington.
"Yes; I Miall say they are "
Counsel for defense insisted, however,
that the oilglnals shall eltlii r be supplied
or that Sir. Havcmeyer shall identify them
with more certainty. For the present they
are not in, and It Is probable the letter
books will be brought on from New York.
Mr. Havcmeyer could not accurately give
the date ol the purchase, but said the
manuscripts were all bought between the
opening and the close or the correspond
ence with McElhone.
When the court adjourned it was to m et
again this morning at 10 o'clock, but the
further hearing of the case was continued
until Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
MRS. ARMES GETS A DIVORCE
Old Story of the Trouble Between
Major Ariues and His Wife.
The Petitioner In Allowed Alimony,
Counsel Fees and tho Custody of
the Eight Minor Children.
Justice Hagner, prcsldingin equity court
No 2, )esterday granted a decree to Mrs
Lucy H. Amies, divorcing her from her
huabaud. Major George A Amies, U S A,
retired, upon her petition filed January
27, 1S97. Mrs. Amies was allowed ali
mony at the rate of $100 per month until
further orders, also counsel fees, and was
given the custody of their eight nuuorchii
dren The old storyof theirdifferences .sooften
rehearsed by the press. Is toldin the wife's
puitlou, nnd in the evidence adduced.
Twice before Mrs Amies appealed to the
courts for a divorce, but each time her
petition was withdrawn in July, 1891,
it is alleged, the suit was withdrawn upon
the major's proposition for a separation
by agreement, and, while Mrs Armes
ngreed to the proposal, she alleges that he
broke the compact.
It was charged In the petition, and sup
ported by the testimony, that Mr. Armes
had been long the subject of her husband's
cruel treatment She charged that he
had an ungovernable temper and was at
times cruel and Inhuman. She cited as
one Instance of his injustice that in April.
192, Just aftei the birth of their joungest
child, and while bhc was still confined to
her bed, he discharged all of the servauts
and obliged her to take charge or the large
This was detrimental to her own health
and that or the child. Numerous Instances
of his persecution were given, and one
leading cause of Ills conduct was alleged
to have been her refusal to Ign a ir.oit
gage on their Tenth street property She
finally signed the paper, but his conduct
thereafter was no better than before.
The oldci children were witnesses in
their mother's behalf, and they supported
her side of the case.
One or the children, the eldest.is married,
nnd above twenty-one years of age; tho
others, eight in number, are Iert to the
care of the mother
