Patrolman John Shipley took a day off
yesterday, anJ while very drunk entered
the home of Mrs. Ellen Lylcs, a colored
woman, No. 423 Seventh street northeast,
and, after demolishing quite an amount
of furniture, assaulted Rachel Brown, a
woman nearly 100 years or-nep.
Shipley has been stationed in the Ninth
preciuct but a few weeks, and formerly
was at the Fifth precinct, but when De
tective Sutton was truusrerred fropi the
First precinct Shipley wa- asslgued to
duty at the Nin5h.
The patrolman was Ju citizens' clothes
when he went into the house, and was
been going, upstair, by a young daughter
ot Mrs, Lyles. The girl ran to her mother
and informed her that a man was in the
house. Running from the yard, where she
was washing clothes, Mrs.Lyles found that
Shipley had gone into an upper room,
where hermothcr, Mrs. Rachel Brown.nged
ninety-seven, was Mttiug in a chair.
As she m rived at the door Shipley was
aiming a vicious blow at the old woman.
Tne young girl had in the meantime ar
rived and made htrenuous efforts to pro
tect the aged woman from the attack of
Shipley In trying to get out of the way
the giil dipped backward and Tell down
the e'ntire flight of stairs.
After tnrowlng over chairs and tables,
Shipley started down jstairs, following
Mrs. Brown, who was almost paralyzed
by fear. Mrs. Lyles called to a man who
was passing to go into the houie and pre
lect her mother while she went for an
officer. Shipley had in the meantime
drawn a black-jack and was flourishing
it in a threatening manner. He then
proceeded to blow his police whistle
vigorously. Mutterlngtohlmsclt.bc wnlked
softly into a room on the lower floor and
bighting a collection of glassware on the
buffet demolished the wholo by a few
well-directed blows with his black-jack.
He attempted to overturn tlie buffet, but
failing in th's took his revenge on tho
Wlleis the policemen who were summoned
by the wiTlstfe andliy Mrs.Lyles visit, to
the Ninth precinct station arrived, Ship
ley was trying to wreck the ilower garden
in the backyard, ind Sergt. Waguer-and
Patrolmen Tracy and Flathers, who had
reached the .house, were much surpiised
to find that Shipley was the offender, but
soon had overpowered him and carried
him to the Ninth precinct station.
Lieut. Uerfner promptly suspended Ship
ley Tor drunkenness and conduct unbe
coming an officer, while a charge nf
assault was preferred apaiust him bv Mrs
Shipley started on his rampage early in
the morning He went to 619 H streefc
and engaged rooms and board. He soon
returned and frightened Mts. Brawn, his
landlady, by peremptory demands for bis
dinner. He lpft there and showed up
next at the house of Mrs. Honklns, X".

engaged rooms at the house and informed
them that he would have his furnituro
Mrs. Hopkins' son ordered him away, and
Shipley made a dive for him, and he fled
upstairs. Tlie women in the house set'
up a Ehrieklng. and Shipley blew his
-whistle vigorously. Policeman Trany
responded, and he tued to get Shipley out
of the house. He ru&hed through the
house and went up Seventh street telling
the offb.-ers that he was all right.
Shipley next visited the Davis' grocery
store, corner of Seventh and F street
northeast, and ordered the .proprietor to
move his wngoa from in front of the
bullying- Mr. Ttuvis refused to comply with
the order, and was assaulted by Shipley.

and v,ent off on his disastrous trip to the
Lyles' house. He has been on the fore
but five months, and up to this tune bas
been exemplary in his conduct.
WATCHING DORSET FOULTZ
Police Have a Strong Clew to the
murderer's Hiding Place.
His Capture Thought to Be a "Mat
ter of n Few Dnys Only Dis
ijnhsed as a "Woman.
The capture of James Carr bas caused
the police to redouble thcrr efforts to catch
Dorscy Foultz, the much-sought-for negro
murderer. Several clews were found yes
terday, and they were each followed up.
One of these tips, given by a gentleman
living in the Second "precinct, where Foultz
committed his crime, and where Tie is
supposed to be hiding, lias developed sur
prisingly well, and ir the man is not
sarc liehlnd the bars Inside of two or
three xlays, the local detective force will
be uracil disappointed.
Foultz h a? been seen by several persons
who live m the north western section of
the city, while it is known to the police
as a certainty that he was In thecamp"
several day; ago. He is said to be mas
querading as a woman and a patrolman
whose beat includes Brightwood avenue
came near cat cliing a man in this costume
en Tuesday last.
The truth or the matter seems to be
that the police think that they know
where Touitz Is hiding and are waiting
for their upIcion3 to be confirmed be
fore raiding the premises. A woman with
whom Foultz was very familiar, is under
close watch and her movements have fur
nished irrpoitant clews. All the avenues
leading from the city have Ueen con
stantly guarded tfnee the murder occurred
and Foultz, like Carr, miibt have found it
impossible to escape from the city.
Thfi police reruse to divulge what they
know for fear that Foultz maybe spirited
away by Ids friends, but they -state con
fidently that they will take him pris
oner in a few days.
B. & O. FreightTraffic Increases.
The wisdom displayed by Receiver Oscar
G- Murray, of the Baltimore and Ohio, by
making a traffic alliance with Hie Great
Northern Steamship Company, through
Fairport, and the handling of Chicago and
Milwaukee lielght by way of the Owen
Line of steamers, has been demonstrated
by material results. TJp to the 1st of July
the west-bonnd packago freight receipts at
Fairport increased about 8,000 ions, and
the east-bound increased about 3, 000 tons.
The total increase of business was about
25 per cent.

HONDURAS COMPANY'S AGENT

Him by Another Man Who Found
Them Once a Well-Known und
Tlie old Louisiana State Lottery lias
again shown its head in Washington, do
ing business under the name of the Hon
duras National Lottery Company. It has
boon four years since the local r.o'Jce have
been called upon to enforce the law in
respect to the Louisiana State Lottery,
and it waa supposed that the business,
which flourished here to such a large
extent, had been effectually blotted out.
The first arrest for violation of the law
in this respect was made about It o'clock
yesterday morning by Detective Watson,
when unapprehended George Prender,who
Is alleged to be the company's agentin this
city, and locked him up in No. 0 station.
Premier Isostoiilbly a life Insurance agent,
and hasan oftiee at his residence, No. 533
Tenth street feoutheast, but the detectives
6ay he is really the head of the Louisiana
Lottery Company in this c,ity, and has been
acting as such for .omc months past
The lottery btiMness had just begun to
nourish again. Defective Watson, who has
special charge of pelloycasus, and who has
succeeded In breaking up all thesiiops lh
Washington, learned- the facts some time
ago, but has heretofore been unable to
fasten a case upon Prender. Yesterday
he sighted him passing two susplcicus
lookmg slips ot pflpeT to two men, and
Immediately placed him under arrest. The
two men at oucc surrendered the slips,
w'hich proved to be regular lottery tickets
In the Honduras, rormerly the Louisiana
State, Lottery Company,
In Jr render's poisea-sfon was fomd a
paper containing the names of twenty-five
persons to whom he had sold tickets, and
the correspinding numbers.
The tickets which Detective Watson se
cured were Nos. 80,353 and 02,S4C, and
read that the drawing will take place on
Saturday, August 14, at Puerto Cortez,
Honduras, under the direction of the Hon
duras National Lottery Companj , governed
by the Louisiana State Lottery The 3.-131
prizes noted on the slips range from 909,
of $8 each, to one grand prize of $30,000.
Prender has been accustomed to trans
acting his business with the company by
means of express to avoid sending his
matter through the mails He was locked
up in No. (5 station on the chaige of pro
moting policy lottery. The -penalty for
theoffense is quite .evere being both fine
and impr'sonment. The case will corne
up in police court this morning"'
George Prender was -at one time well
known and well liked in Washington. He
Is of English birth and is fifty-five years
old. He came to Washington forty years
ago. He has held many excellent positions
in this city, and has always given satis
faction to the people with whom he has
come in contact. Many years ago he ro
signed a 3l .00 position in tlie Treasury De
partment and started a stationery store
next to Thompson's drug store. This busi
ness ri a loughtout by the-Brentauos.
A reporter for The Times called on "Mr.
Thompson yesterday afternoon and -asked
him about Mr. Prender. "Yes, I know
George Prender very well," he said. "He
kept the store next door to me for a long
time twenty years ago, and we were very
.good friends. He was very punctilious
about his monetary oWigations, -and I re
member that five years after be had given
up that store he came to my place and
naid me $ or $5 that he haefborrowefl,
and that I had entirely forgotten. I have
seen him -at intervals of two or three days
to a few years ever since that time.
He told rne Jw days ago that he was
in the insurance business. I do not be-
j lieve, fr.nn rr.y knowledge of the man.
that these charges against him will prove
to be true."
Several years after this time Mr. Pren
der was employed In the sixth auditor's
office. He resigned from this place, or
Iwas transferred to tlie War Department.
Two years ago, 1n a general reduction of
force in the War Department, he was
one of the several who Iiad to give up
Inquiry at the Treasury Department and
at the War Department, where he Was
well remembered, showed that his reputa
tion. In these places, both for his work
and for bis personal character, was ex
cellent. Several people bpoke of his .gen
erosity and of many acts of kindneis that
had sigaalized his work in the office.
After Mr. Prender left the War Depart
ment he did not succeed so well in a
business way as formerly. He became the
agent Tor a silver-plated ware firm, and
for a Foap establishment. Later he gave
that up, and witliiu the lat few weeks
has been ostensibly an agent for the Eoyal
Lire Insurance Company. It cannot be
learned, however, that Mr. Prender has
done any insurance business,.
Prender does not deny tho lottery ticket
tale. He was seen by a Times reporter
yesterday, and gave a .full account of
wbat he alleged to be the facts of the case
"I did sell the tickets," he said. "I sold
three of them. I didn't deny this to the
detective nor refuse to give my correct
name and address The tickets were given
to meby a man named Thorpe, who lives
in my neigjiborbood, for a debt he owed
me. I don't know bow he got them except
that ho said he found them.
"The two men who bought the tickets
from me I never saw before. I got to
talking with them about the Klondike
gold, and tbey expressed the wish to go to
Alaska. I remembered the tickets In my
pocket, and having no use for them, said to
i'rp p0t something better than the
Klondike.' Ishowed them the tickets Thorpe
had given me, and they Immediately offered
to purchase them."

A GOVERNMENT BY GOORTS
Right to Free Speech on Pulilic
JUDGE JACKSON'S INJUNCTION
The Sweeping Chn meter of Its In
hiblti'in It Applies to the 3Io
uonguh District, Upon Hvhieh the
SuecenH or Failure of the Strike
in Large Part Depends.
Wheeling, W- Va., Aug. G. While the
inactivity of strike leaders has been attri
buted to the Columbus conference ot labor
leaders, It is assumed by many that the
injunctions Issued by Judge Mason, of
the Marion circuit court, and Judge John
Jay Jacksou, ot the United States district
court, are the sole causes of apparent
suspension of the arranged program of
President Uatchford and his fellow offi
cials of the Mine Workers Uuinn
Two writs are entirely responsible for
tho lull In strike affairs in tlie big Motion -gah
district. Both injunctions are intended
to prevent agitator.-, from entering the
Moacngah (ieids, but it is said the intei
ventlon of the United States court was
sought because it was recognized that the
Government would have more weight than
the State, hhoiild a clash cccur
Another reatsin was the fact that James
Sloan, Jr., one of the slockliolders of tnu
Monongah Company, la a non-restdent
aud consequently his application for an
injunction would be upon the Federal
court. Judge Jackson's Injunction wonld
be the one enforced in the Monongah field
should occasion require. It will be deter
mined September 20. In the meantime,
however, it is in full force, enjoining
Eugene V. Debs and his associates from
fcptuking on the subject of strikes in and
about MonongaH mines.
They are not . permitted to intercept
miners on their way to and from work;
they cannot speak on any of the public
highways leading to the mines of the pe
titioners, and. lastly, they are ordered to
hold no public or private meetings what
soever in the -vicinity of the mines in
question Judge Jackwm's injunction does
not, it is claimed, hinder the prosecution
of strike missionary work In other parts
of the State, but the Monongah district
is the scat of war in West Virginia,
and the injunction might as well extend
lo coal centers within the jurisdiction of
the United States court for the district of
Another fact the Monogah Company had
in mind when they asked for the inter
vention of the United States court was thut
6hould trouble occur ail of the employes of
the Paltimore and Ohio Railroad Company
would be brought against the strikers as
deputy mirshals, the road being in tlie
hands of the federal court. Tlie railway
companies are, of conrse, subject to orders
ot the United States court, and conse
quently tnev would not be in a poiition
to render service to the strike canse.
The injunction which tics the hands of
the strike leaders who have been working
in the Monongah field is capable of enforce
ment on the slightest notice. It went into
effect yesterday, when the petitioners
filed the amount of load, S5.000. required
in injunction proceedings. Since the in
junction none of the various unions that
had been organized among the striking
minors in the Monongah and adjoining
rields has taken an active part in the
fight. If the Monongah miners and others
in "Marion county strike it would be by
their own free will.
Since J edge. Jackson took hold of the
strike matters Judge Mason's injunction
lias practically dropped out of sight. It
Is claimed that Ma.vm prepared and granted
the Injunction, acMng as petitioner and
judge, because he was Interested In one of
the local mining companies. Judge Mason
denies the charge, however.
DUPDY DE LOME'S DREAM
Pursuing Phantom Ships in a Phan
The Latest ISxnrnple of His Zeal for
the TlHbnsters Thnt Always,
Get Safely Oat of Port.
SenoT Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish min
ister ta this country, has had another
dream. This time his imagination wan
dered along the New York and New Eng
land coast while he reposed in the embrace
The visfon he saw was a number of
patriotic Cubans shipping munitions of
war from New York city to a schooner
moored at Bridgeport, Conn. He sighed
when he saw magnificent guns and vast
quantities ot powder "placed on tlie vessel.
It was cleaT as day to him that ancthcr
expedition to suffering Cuba was being
fitted out, and nestling closer in the arms
of the god of sleep he followed his vion
to the en.l.
He saw the schooner fully loaded with
guns, ammunition, and medicine slowly
towed away from the qniet little town or
Bridgeport totheLonglsl and Sonnd.where
after a long sail in the night the schooner
mot a steamer, which the dreamer be
lieved to be the Douglass. Signals were
exchanged between the steamer and the
schooner, and then with a deep sigh
the dreamer beheld the precious cargo
transferred to the steamer and the latter
sail for the coast of Cuba.
This last portion ot the vision was so
realistic thnt Senor Dupuy de Lome
awoke. He was trembJingwitb excitement
and great drops ot perspiration rolled
down his face. Collecting his thoughts
as rapidly as he could, he dashed to the
street and ten minutes later had informa
tion on its way to the Treasury Depart
ment to the effect that another Cuban
filibustering expedition was being fitted
He described what he had seen in his
vision and did it so vividly that orders
were issued at once by the Treasury of
ficials to tho, collector of the port of New
York and the collector at Bridgeport to
keep a carerul outlook for the expedition
and to prevent its sailing.

The testimony of the prosecuUon tended
