Judge Colo Decides Commissioner
Mills Was Legally Appointed.
An Issue Hnlised by District Attorney
Jhxxln While KchiHtinc: He-
leuse of Priboners.
In au opinion handed down yesterday
Judge Cole quashed the contention ro
eently made by District Attorney Davis
Hint the District supreme court had no
power to appoint United States conmiLs
bioners, and time uch United States commissioner!-
now In office hud no right, to
exeicis'i the law applying to the release of
pauper convicts. The question was re
cently raised by Mi. Davis when he re
ceived a notice from United States Com
missioner Mills that an inmate of the Jail
had applied ic him for release under tl'o
poor convict act. Mi. Davis raised the
issue tiiu.t legally Mr. Mills was not n
United States coiiiinisMoner, and that ho
had no power to execute the law involved.
In Ids decision Judge Cole decided that
the- siipreme court of the District was a
United States court iu every sense of
the word, and that it was, therefore, withiu
Its jurisdiction tc appoint United States
commlssioncis. Such commissioners had
been appointed by tlie court for the last
three-quarters or a century and during that
time they had discharged their duties iu a.
manner identical "with that of commission
ers In the several States. There was no
construction to be placed on the law on
the subject, he held, which would Indicate
tliut the court was not a United States
court, with rull power to appoint commis
sioners. The contention over the poor convicts'
act arose from the cum: of a man who
had been sentenced in the police court to
pay a fine of $15 or serve sixty days iu
jail for an offense. In the absence or the
payment, of fine the prisoner was taken to
J ill- At Hie end or thirty days, accord
ing to law, lie notified the court that he
was entitled to release In pursuance with
the provisions of the poor convict act
The di-triut attorney held thut the
prisoner wits not being held solely on
accouiit of a nonpayment of fine. J-idge
Cole hehl to the contrary, and decided that
tne United States commissioners of the
District weie vested with the power to ex
ecute the provisionsof the poor convict law.

Judge Bradley in Making Coiimmnt
Censures Warden Leonard.
Judge Bradley yusterday granted a new
trial to Eernadme di Nunzio, the Jtallan
musician recently convicted of assault
with attempt to commit criminal assault
on Dora Ax, the little eight-year-old girl
living on Brlghtwood avenue. The prin
ripal reason a-slgned by Judge Bradley
for granting a rehearing of the case was
the fact that DI Nunzio cannot speak
English; that moi-t of the testimony in
the case was in that language, and thatthc
interpretei employed iu the trial was not
fully competent to perform his duties.
Besides, lie thought, that the testimony
submitted by the girl was incredible Jn
many particulars and Would bear further
consideration and rehearing.
"When Judge Bradley acceded to the re
quest for a new trial, made by Di Nunzio's
attorneys, he took occasion to direct at
tention to what lie said looked to tilui like
a dereliction of duty on the part of Warden
Leonard, of the District jail. It will bo
recalled that while Di Nunzlo was con
fined therc.awaltlng trial, he was examined
by a physician who testified in the trial on
behalf or the Go eminent, Judg. Bradley
said, in effect, yesterday, that the warden
of the Jail neglected his duty in allowing
such an examination to be made, and that
itappearedto him to be as near misconduct
ing the arfalrs or the jail as could possibly
THH OKDEAL OF WILLIAMS.
Evidence Siibiniried in Ills Trial
The case of Ban Williams, charged with
embezzlement, again occupied the atten
tion of Judge Bradley in criminal court
No. 2 yesterday. M. W. Quintan, who has
succeeded Williams as fine clerk at the
police court, Avar, the first witness called.
He submitted some testimony as to the re
ception and disbursement of the money
which passed through his hands.
T. L. Wollard, a stenographer, testified
as to the confession which Williams made
when taken before Chief Clerk Richard
Sylvester and Major Moore, at police 1'e id
quarters. Williams, he said, admitted the
alleged embezzlement and offered to do
anything in his power to make good the
shortage. Williams told Mr. Sylvester, the
wituess testified, that he had spent the
money on race horses.
Clerk Nicholas Harper, of the police
court, was recalled to the stand in the
afternoon and submitted some testimony

The Transactions Chiefly Made Tin
of Room Traders' Ventures.
lixcellenr. Statement of the Chicago,
Burlington and Quiney Huh tin
New Tori.-, Oct. 20. The logical" tend
ency of the speculation la to contract, iu
view of the serious questions which will
come up for settlement within the coming
week. ITsnce 'tie tiansucaious on tin
stock market today weie chiefly made up
of those in-aud out ventures of the loom
traders, and even with that class the
political situation rather displaced the
stock market in point of attention. It
seemed to be generally consldeied that the
political situation has been much simpli
fied by reason of the sudden death of one
of the candidates, and to some extent the
event iu question was accounted u ruAot
ablom.ul-et influence. O titer fuetorswhlch
could be placed on the same side of the
account were the continued but not main
tained strength of the wheat maiket, a
further announcement by the Attorney
General that the Union Faciflu .-ale -would
not be postponed and the excelleut .Sep
tember blutement of earnings made bj
the Burlington and Quiney Company. The
price chunges In such a maiket could not
be considered as of much significance,
'ihe market changed its superficial tone
several times dining the day, according
to the varying diafts of the reports as
to the readjustment of the local political
bltuatlonbut actual liquidation aud in
vestment were equally missing.
In ordinary circumstances it I'llgjit be
assumed that such astatementas wasmad"
by the Burlington would have found pro
ii'rtmewMl stock market reflection, but the
stock actually declined upon its publlca
Hon. The figures show that 1.1 per cent
was earned on thestocklu September, and
it is expected that the October report win
be approximately as good. The company
increased its gros earnings for the mouth
about -10 per cent, and its net returns in
Tensed nearly 50 per cent. The market
opened at general advances from yester
day's closing price, but lost the improve
ment in the forenoon dealings". A suc-se
quent reeuveiy In Burlington and the other
gi anger stocks extended through the gen
eral market, though the trading continued
on a small scale
In the later advances In prices Chicago
Gas, Missouri Pacific and Northern Pa
cific were conspicuous. Consolidated Gas,
which was moderately active, reflected
pressure throughout the day.

The market was dull and devoid of
features yesterday. The principal event
In the political situation in New York, tne
death of Mr George, was productie of
many opinions as to the ultimate outcome,
but seemed to udd to tlie dispo.-ilion on
Wall street to do nothing until after elec
tion. There was nothing else in the move
ment of the list or iu the railroad news
that requires auy lengthy notice. London
did but little in New York, but prices for
American stocks improved In the London
market to a slight extent. The exchunge
market was s-imewhat firmer at 4 e-1 1-i
aud 1-" for demand bills on London. If
anything of a general nature ma be said
of the market it is that ft shows no ten
dency whatever to recover, in the lute
aitenioon yesterday the market continued
dull, irregular r.nd heavy, and entirely
profesMonal, though fflra few minutes
before the close there was some 'disposi

Earn'ugs yesterday were fairly good.
Northern Pacific, for the third .veek. of
October showed an increase of SoO.OOO;
Burlington hail a net increase or 019,000.
and a gross of over a 'million for Septem
ber. Reading, for September, showed a
not mran'e or $153,000; Coal and Iron,
lor September, & net decrease of $1 It ,000.
One of the directors of Burlington says,
according to Dow, Jones & Co.: "
''The October statement will not make
quite a3 good a showing relatively :ii that
made for Rpptembei .''but'iieveithf-less, the
company Is doing a large business. Gioss
earning? aie increasing about $30,000 per
day. October of last?year waa a large
month. lie thinks - it- quite likely that
the compenj will stfbtv 8 per cent on the
stock for the year, as'has been calculated.
This only calls for an average net increase
of $230,000 purmoutht and the company
shows a" incroasefor the first three months
of the year su far Ofulmost $1,100,000,
for the remalnlngnliftf'months the company
only has t" earn the-net inciease of about
$178,000 per month to show the 8 per
cent earned. The n&nagement has de
cided not to issue a renprt for the twelve
months ending June ' 30 last, and vthe
next annual report" to'be Issued will be
for the twelve months ending Juno 30
next. "" '"'
It is unquestionable that Burlington's
earnings were slightly disappointing. The
stock was strong in the morning, but after
the figutes appeared it bold off.
It seems probable that Union Pacific
will advance. There seems no reason why
it should not do so. It looks like one of
