A DISHONEST FELLOW.
"Victim In IllliioN, Ono in nll
fnrnln. nnd Stilt Another In Sett
San Oal., May 20.
Sensational developments have resulted
day in the case of J3ooth, the bicyclist,
who swindled a young St. Louis ludy
and was arrested therefor. A woman,
calling herself Mrs. Alico
"Veeden, called at police henduarters,
and said she had been Booth's
tress, but that he had deserted her
about seven months ago, and took
nearly all her clothing and jewelry.
The day after he left a letter came for
him, which she opened. It was from
his mother in Wellington iTov Zealand,
reproaching him for leaving there
suddenly, and begging him to come
back, pay his debts, and deal honorably
by the youncr girl whom he compromised.
Booth's trunk was in tho
hands of the police, and Mrs. Wccdcn
asked to look over tho contents. Sho
identified many articles as hers. Sho
said that, besides taking her thine, ho
made nvrny with $,200 in money.
"While the trunk-searching was coing
on Mi.ss McCabe, accompanied by
Gardner and sonic lady, entered. Captain
Lees then decided to have Booth
brought up. He did not appear surprised
at nicotine Ms. Not
a muscle of his face moved. Sho
(greeted h'm with, " How are you,
Charley? " and tho two proceeded to
divide tho contents of the trunk. Sho
claimed about three-fourth of the articles.
She claimed all his white
shirts, asserting that she had bought
and paid for them in Melbourne.
.While tho two were disputing tho
door opened and Miss McCabe,
Booth's latest viotim, entered, leaning
on thenrm of Chief Crowley. Booth
was visibly moved. He started and
glanced nervously at her and at
the officer. She was much affected,
and sobbed and moaned. Tho scene
was sad. Gardner stood on ono side
with a determined iace and fists
clenched, breathing vengeance on
Booth. Tho latter soon recovered
his self-possession and continued to
arrnngo the trunk. Miss' McCabe
snoke a few words in a low tone to
him. Tears came into his eyes, and
he said he wished tho thing had not
happened, as U was bad for both. She
demanded a ring and $."i0 from him,
and after some demurring he gave
her tho ring, but refused to give up
the monev until he had seen his attorney.
Mrs. "Weeden will prosecuto
him for grand larcenv. complaint already
havinc been made at tho timo
he decamped last October. A correspondent
interviewed Miss McCabe.
She was in spisms nearly all
dav yesterday, and was hardly
able to penk upon the subject.
She said she l"ft an honored home
for Booth, who seemed kind and
affectionate all that a woman could
desire. She first met him in "Whitehall.
III., nt the house of her adopted
father. She is almost broken-hearted
by her lpvor's perfidy, and intends to
po back to St. Louis as soon as
Gardner has also abandoned all
his plans of going to "Washington
Territory. It is hard to place Booth's
nativity, hut he was probably born in
Canada. Beports have been received
from various quarters of Booth's desertion
of other women.
Death of n Man With n SVniisc Ills.
Tauis, May 20. There has just died
at Charenton, near this city, a man who
has had a very curious history. Thirty
years ago this person, whoso name was
Boussot, was condemned to deatlr at
Seine Assizes for the murder of an old
gentleman, M. Demoury. The case had
excited considerable interest, and tho
court was crowded with spectators.
Among the persons standing immediately
behind Boussot, who was
flanked by a pair of gendarmes,
was ono Planchat, an
of tho Prcsse newspaper,
who had somehow contrived to
wriggle himself intothat position without
attracting notice. Scarcely had
the sentence been pronounced when
Planchat,moved, as no afterward explained,
by an uncontrollable impulse,
)assed the side of his hand over the
prisoner's neck in imitation of tho keen
jlade of the guillotine, at tho same
Jmo emitting a whirring sound.
instantly fell forward with a shriek
of terror, and tho bystanders, indignant
at this heartless and shocking
act, rushed upon Planohat and roundly
abused him. Planohat was subsequently
condemned to two years'
imprisonment. As for his victim,
he nover recovered from?tho shook, remaining
insane until tho day of his
death. IIo was pardoned by tho Emperor
and confined, first at Bicotro,
and afterward nt Oharonton, whoro
ho has just, expired. Tho unfortunate
man was under tho impression
that he had .been actually beheaded
in. the Palais doJustico, and when relating
the story was in tbo habit of
imitating tho sound tljat haunted him
for thirty years. i-.A,
