WENT TO JAIL IN A COUPE.
Ex-Pollccman James W. Cotton Will Servo
a Four-months' Term Jury's
An eoho of the notorious Daley-Gessford
charges was heard when ex-Policeman
James W. Cotton was sent to jail by
Judge Miller yesterday afternoon to serve a
four months' sentence, without fine, for en
gaging in the salo of lottery tickets in the
The case came before the court on a motion
. r awvor Hvman. counsoi for Cotton, inar
guilty by a police court jury several weeks
ago. Mr. Hyman argued that there was no
offense of promoting lottery undor the law in
the District. In reply to this Judge Miller re
marked that a man necessarily promoted lot-'
tery if ho sold lottery tickets, and Cotton had
been convicted of that offense.
Tho motion in arrost was grantod, so far
as it relatod to tho third count in the indict-
pent, and as the court had instructed the
jury to ignore the first count at the time of
the trial, tho argument was conllned to tue
second, and only count left. This charged
Cotton with having sold lottery-policy tickets
to ono William Gales, a colored druggist, of
No. 22S4 Brightwoodjavenue.
In deciding aguinst the motion Judge Mil
ler said it was shown by the evidence that
Cotton not only bad lottery tickets about his
person, but gift envelopes, which showed a
desire on his part to conduct this sort of
business. Then on auothor occasion, when
Cotton was airssted, Policemnn Gnrrowny
found fragments of lottery tickets scattered
about the -ell the defendant Had but recently
vacated. The information nbout lotterv
whiCh caused the trouble in the police de-
partment came out through Cotton. '"In

the defendant was still the responsible head
of a family and he hoped the court would not
impose a sentence which would deprivo bis
wife and children of his support and means.

attorney, "but he has a dependent wife and
"Cotton is a dangerous man," interposed
Prosecutor Mullownoy. "Ho does not care
what he says nor whom it injures. Ho went
off buggy-riding with his friend Murtin and
then treacLerously tried to get him into jail.

ignorant of the law he was violating. Ho de

Pears, however, that he has a natural
penchant ana aptitude for such schemes as
that of lottery. He has tho disposition of a
fakir. The lottery games appeal to tho poor
and ignorant classes, and they must be
broken up. This Is the first caso of the kind
in whioh final sentence has been imposed by
the police court, all others having gone to
the grand jury. The defendant must serve
four months in jail without line."
During tbe argument Assistant District At
torney Muliowney took occasion to deny in
an emphatic manner the statement made by
Cotton on the witness 6tand that he and Mr.
Muliowney had taken drinks of liquor to
gether in a certain saloon some months ago.
Cotton did not go to jail in the van with the
motley crowd of prison rs who went down
on the last trip yesterday afternoon, but was
allowed to make the journey in a coupe,

CORFESSED THF CRIME.
Mystery of the Packing Case Horror Solved
by One of the Murdcrors
Chicago, Dec. 8. John B. Jersey to-day
confessed that ho, with Ed Jordan, murdered
A. D. Barne3, whoso mutilated body wa3
found in a French shipping case yesterday.
Both Jersey and Jordan are under arrest,
several people having testified to having seen
them with the box containing the body.
The men were employes of Barnes, and the
motive for the crime is thought to have been
I rivalry between Jordan and Barnes for tho
chief janitorship of the Hiawatha building,
which position the murdered man held. Jor
dan being his grst assistant. Jordan has ex-
J hihited remarkable coolness throughout, hav-
I ing been tbe first to identify the body.
I jersey's confession, according to tho police,
shows that Jordan alone was responsible for
Barnes' death. Jersev said that Jordan nn
the afternoon of the murder, gave him some
money, told him to get a few drinks and bo
baek to work at 8 o'clock that night. "When
he reappeared Jordan ordered him to help
carry out the shipping case, and in doing so
some of the blood from the box ran out on
Jersey's sleeve. He asked Jordan what that
meant, and tho latter told him there was a
dead man in the box and that he (Jersey) had
belter keep quiet about what he had aeon.
Badly seared, Jersey kept quiet until the ter
rors of the "sweat box" wrung his story from
HE FELL INTO A TRAP.
Lawyer Ilaigh Tackled the Wrong Man
for iluying rorged Notes.
New Yore, Dec. 8. David L. Kellam, the
broker who was arrested last night together
with Lawyer Henry N. Haigh, on complaint
of H. E. Simmons, of Tacomn. Wash., who
charges them with obtaining notes from him
under false protensos, made n statement to
Inspector McLaughlin to-dny of personB who
held some of the notes involved.
The Wayne County Savings Bank of Hor
neilsville, Pa., holds two note3 for 61,500,
one being given for collateral and tho other
deposited with tho institution for discount.
Eellam and Haigh were arraigned before
Justice Grady in the Tombs polico court to
day. Haigh said his connec tion with tho alTnir
was purely legitimate. He was to receive
his commission for whatever- notes ho dis
posed of. Just who gave himthe notes he
would not say.
Tho Robert Hayes who negotiated with
Lawyer Haigh for tho purchase of $83,000
worth of tbe notes, was none other than Jos
eph A. Bnttou, of tho Society for tho Preven
tion of Crime and tho Enforcement of Law.
Alter a brief preliminary examination tho
defendants were each held in 25,000 bail,
and the further bearing was set down for
next Monday. The prisoners wero unable to
furnish this bond and were locked up,

Beblix, Dec. 8. The nntl-rovolutionnry
bill Is now published textually and is every
where subjected to the most severe scrutiny
and, criticism. Although tho National Lib
erals alone give tho bill their unqualified ap
proval, tho general opinion is gaining ground
that tho mcosuto, if modified, will becomo a
law. For this result the Socialists have, to a
great extent, to thank themselves, their ac
tion in tho Reichstag on Thursday having
produced a very bad effect upon tho country.
Paragraph 130 is the ono which is most
likely to bo rejected. It runs thus: "Any
person who shall, in a manner calculated to
endanger public peace, publicly incite disfer
ent classes of tho population to acts of vio
lence, shall be fined up to COO marks or bo
imprisoned for a period not exceeding two
years. The same punishment will bo dealt
out to any one who. in a manner endanger
ing public peace, snail publicly nttaok ro
ligion, tho monarchy, marriage, family or
property, by insulting utternnces."
The fight will rago around tho above para
graph, whiqh will be opposed not only by tho
Socialists and Liberals, but by other parties.
For instance, tho antl-Semitesand Catholics
oppose it. Orthodox Catholics do not recog
nize tho validity of civil or mixed marriages,
yet botn are perfectly legal, and any attack
upon them, even by it priest from tho pulpit,
would be a violation of tho proposed law.
The anti-Semites are also liable to punish
ment for anti-Jewish agitation.
Tho Vorwaerts, tho Socialist organ, to-day
says that the paragraph is modeled on an act
of the State of Illinois, under which tho
anarchists wero hanged in 1887. The debalo
on the bill will be opened by Prince Holicn
lohe, the Chancellor, after the Christmas re
cess. According to tho Cologne Gazette, owing to
Thursday's scene in tho Reichstag, a bill will
bo introduced giving tho Reichstag power :o

BLIXT KILLED MISS GING
But Harry Hayward Was the One
Who Planned the Murder.
HIS BROTHER ADRY CONFESSES
Police of tho Opinion That tho Poor Girl "Was
Lured to Her Death by a Confidence
Game Bobbed of Her Honey and Mur
dered for Life Insurance She Carried.
Minneapolis, Dec 8. Adry A. Hnyward
has confessed that his brother Harry planned
Miss Catherine Ging's murder, and that C.
A. Blixt, tho engineer of the Ozark flat3, com
mitted the deed. Blixt was arrested this
morning and locked up in the central station.
After tho deed, Blixt returned to the city nnd
disposed of some of the clothing to a work
house prisoner named Erickson. Erlckson
left next morning for Iowa Falls, Iowa,
where his wife la employed in a hotel, and
had the clothing washed. He returned to
Minneapolis and sold some of the clothing
to a pawnbroker on Washington avenue. The
motive for the crimo was the securing of the
insurance on Miss Ging's life.
Adry Hawyard has been taken to St. Paul
for safo keeping. He is expected to make a
written confession of the whole plot there.
His attorneys are very indignant at the action
of the authorities in proventing them from
seeing their client. The manner In which his
nerve was llnally broken and he was induced
to confess is sensational.
When Adry was flnt taken under detention,
nnd the sweating process applied, he was
Invincible. His course in all of the terrors
which were applied to induce a confession,
and other appeals made, together with con
fronting him with pretended proofs, which
lovors wero applied by Assistant County At
torney Hall, was greatly admirod. Ho stood
like a mountnin in a storm, absolutely un
flinching. This was in the county attorney's
The scene wns most dramatic. Mr. Hall had
to guide him, first of all, only the intuitive
knowledge he had obtained from a study of
"I know nothing whatever," Adry reiterated
constantly. Finally he exclaimed:
"If all you say is'true, and I know aught
which would tend to convict Harry, still
would I keep my mouth closed. I would not
have the blood of my brother on my hands."
Thus matters stood until toward midnight
Inst night, aftor it was certain that Blixt and
Erlckson wero safely under cover. Blixt and
his wife wero then under examination in a
room in tho West Hotel. Lewis M. Stewart's
ofllco is in tbe Eosoka Building, ono block
away, and here Adry wns brought in a car
riage, Stewart having been requested to be at
It was the samo room in which Adry hnd
made his statement three days prior to the
murder that Harry was putting up the job to
murder tho girl, which fact had been written
to the county attorney in'Mr. Stewart's letter
of Tuesday morning, tho 4th. Mr. Hall alone
took Adry into Mr. Stewart's office.
The moment he was in Stewart's presence
ho showed the first sigus of weakening, but
made nn effort to maintain his nerve. As be
fore, denials wore on his lips, but when Stew
art said there was no use quibbling, that he
knew of his brother's wholo plot. Adry broko
down utterly. He turned to County Attorney
Hall and said:
"I'm dono. I will toll the whole story."
Ho did so nnd it covered his own knowledge
of tho plot from the time it wns contrived.
Tho plot was for Blixt and Erlckson to be tho
nctual murderers. As Adry understood it,
Miss Ging was to bo docoyod into being deliv
ered over to Blixt's hands aud Blixt was to
kill her and Erickson to assist in hiding top
clothes or whatever elso was necessary.
No ono was permitted to seo the Hayward
boys except their attorneys and relatives.
W. E. Hale was an early caller at tho county
jail this morning, remaining in their cell for
a long time. Sheriff Ego and his men wore
nt work nil Inst night and wero still on tho
trail of more evidence this morning.
"My theory from tho start has been that
Blixt was tho man who did the shooting," he
said. -'Blixt is a tough case."
'Was Blixt the' man who went riding with
Miss Ging?" ,
Tho sheriff looked stendlly at his questioner
for a moment and replied:
"Blixt is tho man who did -tho shooting."
Tho sheriff in ransneking tho Ozark found
many things that will be of vnluo in bringing
tho murderer nnd his accomplice to their de
serts. Ono of these was a white bandker
chiof, with several imprints of bloody Angers,
ns if It had beon used in wiping up small
flecks of blood. Tho handkerchief was rather
small, of quite fine texture, probably belong
ing to Mis3 Ging.
Harry Hayward was greatly affected by tho
nows broken to him at tho jail that his brother
had confessed, but he will stoutly maintain
his innocence. Hb said Adry might think
ho was tolling tho truth, but ho was not..
Blixt's clumsy attempt to arrange an alibi
after tho murdor has been thoroughly looked
up nnd tho alibi exploded. It is understood
thnt tho authorities believe that Miss Ging
was lured to her death by a confidence game,
allied in nature to tho gold brick swindle.
She was robbed of her money besides being
killed for her lifo insurance. This theory ex
plains the throe rides and tho mystery with
which sho surrounaed ber actions

Wounded In a Freight Car. thoi
Motive Being Robbery.
Fostobu, Ohio, Dec. 8. In a fight between
tramps in a box car on a Baltimore and Ohio
train two were killed and another fatally
The fight occurred about midnight last
night. The murder was not discovered until
the train reached this city. Tho dyingtramp,
whose name Is Harris, mado a statement of
the murder, charging it- to two men who
came aboard tho train at Auburn. He says
the murderers alighted from tho train before
it reached Fo3toria and escaped.
'Ibe ghastly find wa3 made by Brakeman

Ier, about twenty-five miles west of here,
four men boarded our car and mado a de
mand for our money. Wo had a fight and
thoy commenced shooting and I was shot
down. I think tho men left tho ear at Desh

Reesh wa3 found to have four bullets in
his head, any one of which would prove fa
tal. Brown was shot five times in the body
and onco in tho head. Harris had two bul
lets in his head and one in the left breast.
The car, In which tho shooting was done,
looked like a slaughter pen, and about
twenty-five empty shells were found on tho

-LET THE GOOD WORK GO ON,
Chairman Lcxow Thinks Other Depart
ments Should Be Investigated
New Yobk, Dec. S. Chairman Lexow, of
the police investigating committee. Is author
ity for tho statement that during the present
month thero is little probability that any high
officials of the police department will be sum
moned as witnesses.
He says that having already examined three
of the Police Commissioners, he does not see
how tho committeo could go much higher,
and he does not know whether Superintendent-
Byrne3 will be called or not. During tha
two weeks which intervene before
the holidays,. Chairman Lexow
thinks the testimony taken should
b'Sof a character that would aid the commit
teo In framing remedial bills to be presented
to tho senate, and implies in his statement
that sufficient evidence of tho corrupt prac
tices of the polico department has been offered
to show tho necessity of such legislation.
No sessions will be held during the holi
days, and after the assembling of the legis
lature on January 2 somo time will probably
be taken up in preparing the report of the
committeo. Chairman Lexow, bowever,
says if tho majority of tho members
of tho committeo approve of it he
will offer a resolution to extend its powers for
another year, or for such a period as may be
necessary to investigate other departments of
the city government, and that hearings could
be held during the legislative session on Mon
days, Fridays, and Saturdays.

many other dignitaries of the church.
Farther Murphy was asked if it was true
thnt tho principal object of the papal able
gate's visit was to take a band in tho Corri-gan-Ducey
"I do not bellee he thinks the matter of
sufficient importance," was the reply.

from his lato home, at No. 114 Ninth street
southeast, with Masonic honors. Mr. Steele
was a member of Myron M. Parker Lodge,
No. 27, F. A. A. M., and had a wide acquaint
ance. The death of Mr. Steele will probably never
be officially investigated, as Coroner Ham
mett viewed tho body yesterday and deemed
an inquest unnecessary, although tho friends
and family of the deceased believe that some
body was to blame.
