Significantly of Lynch Law.
After being out one hour and fifteen min
utes, tho Jury in the case of Alfred B.
Talcott, charged with assaulting five small
glrib, yusterday afternoon brought in a
verdict of "guilty" in each cabe.
The aged prisoner appeared to be dazed
when the veidiet-was rendered. lie raised
his bauds, exclaimed "My God!" lapsed
into silence aud gazed at the foreman of
With the verdict came a recommendation
for mercy. After u short conference with
his client and Judge Kimball, Mr. Oarring
ton, for the accused, gave notice of Ills In
tention to file a motion for a new trial,
and after feelingly refeiring to the age
aud iniiiiiiity of the accused, his loug lesl-df-nre
in Washington, the standing in I he
community of those who had teitifW d as
to his good character, and the few yeais
yet remaining for him in this life, he aoked
what bond would be required for Talcott.
eu riosecuting Attorney Mullowny ap
peared to feel downcast by the verdict,
and after deliberating some time suggested
$3,000 as the amount of bond detiied to
be given by Talcott. Judge Kimball, how
ever, thought that $2,000 (400 in each
case) would le sufficient, and the defend
ant was releaed on that amount, Mr.
Charles W. Slater being his bondsman
Mr Carrington intimated that he had
new and material evidence at hand, which
he would present when the case again
.ame to trial, and which would probably
bring suiibhine after storm for his client.
When the case was called for trial jes
tcrday, Assistant District Attorney .ul
lowuy put Mrs. Park, Ann Elliott, c.nd
Mrs. Allen on the stand, ami they testified
to the good character of the children in
The accused was then recalled and
explained the alleged offer or $500 to
Hartley to stop the proceedings by lay
ing: "I did not offer $500 to Hartley,
as stated by him I said that I would
not hne had this thing occur and the
children brought into court and pub
licity for $500. How could I offer that
money when the case was going on?"
District Attorney Mullowuy at 'his
point opened his address to the Jury He
referred paiticularly to the demeanor
or the defendant while on the stand. He
spoke of the utter depravity of Talcott
even while testifying on the stand; the
oaths he had used while answering the
questions put to him This, he claimed,
but fit the character or one who ould
he guilty or such conduct as the defendant
at the bar was charged with.
Reverting to the theory or blackmail, ad
vanced by the defence, Mr. Mullowny
directed particular attention to the fact
that Addle Garrison, Phoebe Hartley and
Tillie Mellon were in no wlbe connected
with the alleged blackmailing scneme or
the boys, Roy Gnrriion, Saxty and Mil
stead, who discovered the defendaat w 1th
Julia Garrison and Emma Mellen. Mr.
Mullowny went thoroughly into the testi
mony, which had been given for the gov
ernment, and then rested the case for the
Mr. Carrington, for the defense, opened
with the statement thac he had intended to
rest his case without argument, but upon
mature deliberation had decided to ad
dress the Jury. He quoted authorities to
show that Jn twelve caes of felonious as
sault and kindred cases alleged, but one
was found to be true. Such cosps, he
bald, were "easy to bring, hard to prove,
and still harder to disprove."
Continuing his argument, Mr. Cariing
toD referred to thedeniandsformoney made
by the boys, Garrison and Saxty, and
called attention to their method or getting
it. "Blnckmatleis," he said, "were like
card sharps; a little at a time is all they
want. So these boys wanted first $20,
then $5, and so on, and threatened to tell
Talcott's wire unless their demands were
acceded to "When this failed they tut cat
cned to go to the Capitol and have the
He fuither called attention to the fact
that this information was sworn out by
Milstead, one of the alleged blackmailing
trio, and, notwithstanding this, he swore
on the stand that if he baw a man com
mitting rape lie would say nothing aboutlt.
At this point, 1 o'clock, a recess of 25
minutes was taken for lunch.
When the case was resumed at 1:40
o'clock, Mr. Carrington briefly reviewed
his argument or the morning, and con
tinued, saying that he would now bhow
that the crime charged was an utter im
possibility He cited the fact that the
only medical testimony offered was that
of Dr CustKs, who answered to a stated
hypothetical case that in his opinion the
alleged condition of things could exist.
He furtner recalled the testimony of Tal
cott, that for three or Tour years he had
oe-n physically incapable
Rarely has a more eloquent appeal been
made ror client than that made by Mr.
Carrington for Talcott, and lie closed
hi" remarks with a prayer that God would
help the jury to render a just and fair
verdict, which he felt would discharge
the prisoner at the bar.
Mr. Mullowny then made the closing re
marks for the Government. He answered
the arguments of Mr. Carrington, one by
one. He explained the failure or the Gov
ernment to procure medical testimony by
the "statement that he only cl.nmed a
conviction ror assault; the laying on or
prisoner's hands lor impiopcr pui poses.
During his remarks Mr. Mullowny bpoke or
lytvh law, and asked the Jury if they
had ever stopped to think or the origin
of that name. Mr. Carrington here in
terrupted the speaker, saying that he would
note an exception, as the prosecuting at
torney was making a threat that uulesb
a verdict of "Guilty" was brought in
his client would be lynched.
A second exception was noted and al
lowed, when Mr. Mullowny alleged that
it was a notorious ractin the neighborhood

of assaulting Frank Black, colored, in Free

LECTURING THE POLICK.
Judge Mills Say. They, Too, Axe
Amenable to tho Law.
Frank Tubblns, who keeps no oyster es
tablishment nt No. 1718 Pennsylvania
avonue, was charged in police court yes
terday with disorderly conduct and as
saulting an officer, rollceman Paul Ker
fctcn preferred the charge. Tuhblns dcuicd
that he had assaulted the policeman and
several witnesses substantiated his1 state
ment. In disposing or the case Judge
Mills said that the original arrest was
made on a meager charge.
"The police," he added, "although in
vested with the power to enforce the law
urc themselves to be obedient to the law.
They have no more right to tranbgress it
than the ordinary citizen An officer may
use discrc'ion as to whether he will take
a party into Immediate custody or secure
a warrant and arrest him later. I think
there is sufficient In the original charge or
disorderly to justiry the orflcer in making
the arrest. The case ib made out and
Tubblns Is fined $5.
"Ah to the assault cao I hold that .1
mere resistance by a piisoncr dors not
constitute an assault. If the prisoners'
clothes were torn in. holding back and re
fusing to go to the patrol bo it Is his
own fault The blow Tubblns received 011
his wrist was Justifiable. Case dismissed."

The market had very small and very dis
appointing fluctuations yesterday, riom the
point of view of the speculator, eithei bear
or bull. A large number or stocks closed
at Identically the same figures of their
opening. The whole business waa i.anow
and professional, and theie is as vet no
sign or a change rrom these conditions,
which i3 worse. The question or gold
shipments remains in abeyance. Exchange
transactions aie on a narrow basis, with
demand bterhng btill quoted at tbout
4.67 1-2. It is generally thought that it
anyspeciegojsoutou Saturday theamoant
will be limited. The Cuban matter-s are
really playing very little part In the market
this week. Wall street apparently relies
upon the theory that the Administration
will do nothing. On the whole, the cut
look is perhaps more rttvorable to tem
porary advaeccs than the other tiling.
Any or hair a dozen stocks should go up
a point or so berore they go down.
There is a story that the railway pool
ing bill Is likely to receive a favorable re
port from the committee, amendments be
ing added which put the pools and rates
under the churge or the Interstate Com
merce Commission. Thisis regarded favor
ably by Wall street.
"Western Union was stronger yesterday,
apparently respomhng to statements put
out about the probable maintenance or the
regular dividend rate. As stated In this
column yesterday, Mr. Kussell Sage is ne
or the gentlemen who is said to hae been
making some such statement. He said in
conversation yesterday, however, probably
with this alleged interview as a text, that
he was not at all certain that Wes'ecn
Union would earn its dividend.
Town Topics is or the belief that the
stock is cheap. It boa been saying this
for the last two or three dajs. According
to Town Topics, not only will the regular
114 per cent dividend be earned, but the
statement that will be .submitted to .lie
board of directors three weeks from Today
will show that the earnings or the 0111
pany for the current quarter are more than
1 1-2 per cent on $100,000,000 capitaliza
tion. Chicago Gas had another spurt yebter
day, aud did not lose much or its gain
in the last hours. There are plenty of
good bujers in this stock, and the bears
don't have any successes.
There is news of an important meeting
of repreentatives of Wholesale Grocers
Association of several of the Southern
States, to be held in June during the
exposition, to take action against the
Americau Tobacco Company. These whole
sale grocers' associations have never
been friendly toward the American To
bacco Company and its methods, although
they have been obliged to keep up its
rates in order to hold its business. It is
even suggested that the grocers' associa
tions will hojeottthe companies, and that
in addition to tins legislative action against
the trust in these Southern States will be
pushed. The news of this meeting, which
is put oat as a bear argument, and the
decision by Judge Gibbous, "are offset
by the Cuban news most favorable to the
trust, the street thought. Still, Tobacco
docs not look any too strong just at
Moore & Schley were yesteiday continu
ous sellers of Sugar to such an extent that
it was openly commented on by those watch
ing the stock. Still, it Is not believed that
there will be any important move in the
stock in the immediate future. Certainly
nothing in the "way of facts can be learned
about the tariff bill for the present.
Dow, Jones & Co. say of St. Paul: By the
the retirement of St Tnul's 8 per cent
Prairie dti Chien bonds, accoiding to the
announcement made Saturday, the com
pany will save 4 per cent per annum m
$3,074,000, or almost $147,000 a jenr
This is equivalent of Itseir to about J5-1G
per cent on the common stock, aud hence it
is quite an important item.
St. Paul's earnings fcr the second week
of May increased $13,04?.
Mr. F. D Carley, of the Monetary Trust,
lsstill bullish on theniarket-
"Thc selling side of the market has go-ie
to such an extreme that the more severely
the bears attack any good stock, the more
certain is the advance. Tins is a market
where everybody can make money. It
is only necessary to buy those stocks
we favor at the time when we point out
that the bears have overdone themselves.
This is the whole bituatlon except for the
larger Tact thatconrfdencein the general
world is slowly growing."

Chicago, May IS. Another weak Liver
pool, line crop reports from the North
west, large receipts at Minneapolis and
Iluluth were the bearish reatures prevail
ing today, which resulted in a loss of
about a cent a bushel from yesterday's
close. The rally at the close from the
extreme decline was on reported sales
of nfty-two loads at the seaboard for
export. Cash business here was about
100,000 bushels. The decrease In the
world's visible supply of 1,950,000 bushels
was 1,000,000 bushels less than was
estilnatcd. The trade herecontinuesalmost
entirely proresslonal and easily influenced
by n small preponderance or either buying
or selling At the opening this morning
there was a bold front made by several
traders Inclined to tho bull side, but ;m
attempt to realle on their purchases
caused a sudden break.
There is no change to report In the
condition or corn or oat. In corn theie
was liberal selling against country pur
chases. Ki-ceivers continue to report in
crease! offerings of coarse grains at in
terior points ant anticipate better receipts.
Weather conditions could not he .ncre fa
vorable. The olume of trade In provisions was
moderate, lard and ribs holding fairly
steady, while pork was erratic, ajiromi
nent commission house executing large or
ders on both sides of the market There
was some liquidation by outsiders and
some out-ide packrrs were sellers. Other
pickers bought and the last demand came
mostly rrom shorts. There wa.s no im
provement in the cash demand for meats
