Ross Perry Then Threatened to

PIPING HOT SCEXB IN COURT
Mr. Worthington Declared That He Would
EethaTast Kan to He Slapped by Mr.
Perry The Latter Attempted to Carry
Out .Sis Throat, But Was PreTeatad b?
Kr. Erowning Counsel and Jury on Edge
The lie "was passed, and two well-known
attorneys, Mr. It. Ross Perry and Mr. A. S.
AVortbington, came near a personal encounter
yesterday at the lunacy trial of Mr. O. P.
Doun, of No. 925 Massachusetts avenue.
After the danger ot physical violence
was averted Mr. Perry, trlien he came to
apeak, continued to &all Mr "Worlliinzton
and his clients in keen aud bitter terras.
Mr "Worthington is to speak again to
day, and it is reasonably certain be vill
jnake a masterly, scathing reply, both for
himself raid his clients.
Mr. "Wortliington is an old soldier, lame
"with a gun shot wound. "When 31r. Perry
on account of Juror Mitchell's avowed be
lief that Mr. Donn is ii competent, a&ketl
that the case Ix taken from the Jury, Mr.
"Worthington said a juror has a right to
express his opinion any time.
SATS WHAT IS FALSE.
"Mr. "Worthington is misleading the jury
lliy mlsri'preseiitlng tbc law," taid Mr.
"If Mr. Terry says I have stated "what I
know to be not "law," ans-.v-ivd Mr.
"WortJiincton, 'hit-aays what is also, t
"Mr. "Wortflln&lon'fl physical condition
is such that he moy call any one a liar.
He has fsKely represented the law to the
jury, he is unscrupulous in his conduct
before the juri, he is a liar, and if it
were not forhi3 physical condition 1 vcu!d
slap his face," was the Tetf.rt.
Mr. Browning, who is Mr. Perry's asso
ciate in tlie case, stepped forward as Mr.
"Mr. Terry needn't mind my phjsicnl
condition. If he blaps me he liefer will
&lap another man."
Mr. Browning was just in time, for Mr.
Perry was already inovmg forward to
execute his threat. Others came tc his
side and the two men were kept apart.
The jury retired, and returning in a rewmo
menLs said they would go on .ilh the case
in spite of Mr. Perrj's objciiions to Mr.
Mitchell. Mr. Browning resumed the ar
gument begun yesterday. Referring to an
authority, he said: "I will jead from
the opinion of a judge who knows more
about the matter than even Mr. Ciagett."
JURYMAN CLAGETT'S UEPLi'.
His remark was taken as offensive by
Mr. Dorsey Cloggett, of the jury, and he
sharply directed Mr. Browning not to go
outside his argument to insult jurors. Mr.
Browning concluded his address quietly.
Mr. Perry followed. He said Mr. "Worth
ington. knowing that Dr. Johnson uid the
colored nurse would say, ir put on the
stand, that Mr. Doun was propi-rly cared
for, told the jury they had not of
fered tb show how the old gentleman had
been misused, and said it in a, way to have
the jury believe the nurse and Dr. Johnson
would so testify.
"If that is not uttering a lie," he ex
claimed, "it's acting oie. and it is wholly
unfair." Further, there was not a syllable
to show that Mrs. Todd and Mrs. Burton
could not come and go to their father
free as air; the attempt wan made -o have
the jury believe they were shut out.
Brown to exclude Mrs. Todd from the house
was invented only to be proved absolutely
falbc. Yet Mr. "Worthmgton argued neon
the assumption that Mr. Doun was kept
from his daughters.
MR. BERRY'S ARGUMENT
Again Mr "Worthington had, he said, tried
to make tlie ju ry believe that if it wasproved
Mr Donn is partially insane his property
should be taken from him. Mr "Wortklngton
know better. Any law student standing
about tiie court room ought to kuow better.
It was admitted, he said, that Mr. Donn
is partially unsound m mind. He is said to
have delusions that he is mistreated, that
he is imprisoned, that somebody is trying
to rob him. But he has no delusion that
be has to sell his real estate, that he has to
give las money to somebody, no delusion
whatever about hie property.
The only approach to it was when he
made amistake abouttheloanto Mr. "Wilcox
and Dr. Johnson had testified that this was
fully accounted for by the disturbance
to his memory caused by this controversy.
He then read an English decision ot 1878
fls.ylnr acontractis notvoided by adelusion
of the maker unless it is shown that the
delusion absolutely controlled the making
having mn since last Saturday.
ROBBED HIS EMPLOYER.
Ei-Mnynr Slnart Systematically Victim
ized by One of Ills Trustod Clerks.
Philadelphia, April 19. Ex-Mayor Ed
win S. Stuart, who returned to his large
book store recently, after four years of
service to the city, made the startling dis
covery a few days ago that during his
absence from business a Oiief had gained
a foothold in his store and was robbing
him Detectives were put ou the case, with
the result that to-day D. Elmer Penny
packer, aged twenty-nine years, who had
been a trusted employe in Mr. Stuart's
store for thepastelghtyears, wasarrested.
Pennypecker confessed that since last
November he has been stealing about $10
a day 'in cash and lias taken a few books.
The detectives say, however, that the rob
ber has been working on a murh more ex
tensive scale and that his peculations
may extend further back and reach into
the thousands. Through an accomplice,
Pennj packer did a big business with an
auction house in tlie sale of books, hun
dreds being disposed of in this "vay.
Pennypacker's residence was formd to
be filled with valuable books, 'ind from
tlie headquarters of a temperance organi
zation with which the man was connected
were recovered many more. Penny
packer claims that a paper he published
in the interest of the cause of temperance
was the cause of his downfall, as it ran be
hind, and he stole to meet the expenses of

Commissioner Trnesdell Bays They Are In

to Act Hastily.
The resident property owners on 0 street,

west are very indignant because tho Commis
sioners have not accorded them any relief
in response to their petition asking that tlie
management of tlie BeltLine StreetRailway

horses on O street, near Eleventh.
Many of the residents of that locality were
seen by The Times jeslerday and wath one
accord they characterized the action of the
management of the Belt Line, in Btabb'ng
their horses there against their protest aa
an outraje upan law and public decency,and
a want of respectf or thefeeliiufciud comfort
of inhabitant!! of that neighborhood.
It is not alone of the filth and the olistruct
iuj; f the ttreet that Uiey complain, butof
the continual clatter, clatter, clatter of
the horses in the street from 5o"elock In the
morning until midalght, and also of the
IjjATliiig and loud talking of the boys while
they w.Ut for the next relay to be brought.
During the ls.st day or two an effort has
been made to keep the "stable" clean aud
the lKiya quiet, but how long this will last
is not known.
"It is not a question or appearauce,"
saad one of the residents, "it is a matter of
health and comfort, and no matter how i

"Why, yesterday and last night I had to Keep
my windows closed on account of the dis

HIS IDENTITY A MYSTERY.
SulriuV 1r Aatiliyxiittloii of a Sinn Cnll-
Ihk IlJumelf JiuiifH AVulterx.
A man registering as "James "Walters,
Washington, D C," commmltted suicide
in Rooni3GotthAmencan House Thunday
night, by breaking off tlie gas fixture in
the room, and allowing the escaping gas
to asphyxiate him. He was found dead In
bod about 11 30 o'clock yesterday morn
ing by one of the employes of the house,
and after notifying the police the body was
sent to Lee's undertaking establishment.
The suicide evidently went to the hotel
for the purpose of securing a place where
he could quietly put an end to his life.
A thirty-eight caliber revolver, of the bull
dog pattern, fully loaded, was found on a
fctand in tlie room, and with it lie probably
intended to end his connections with all
things earthly, until he charged his mind
in favor of the less painrul method. After
deciding upon that, he used every posibIe
precaution to prevent dlscoverj , plug
ging tlie key hole up, and stuffing a sheet
around the edges of the door and transom.
He then undressed himself, broke off the
gas fixture and launched himself into
There was absolutely nothing about tho
man by which lie could be identified. A
piece ot the hat band had been torn out,
looking as though It might have tieen
marked with tlie owner's name, and de
stroyed to prevent Identification. Tiiere
were no otiier marks about his clothing,
except the letter "L," embroidered In
one corner of a handkerchief.
Tlie su.cide is a very large and heavy
man, weighing about 225 pounds, and ap
parent! j about fifty years old. He has Ger
man features, lijiit hair and mustache,
slightly turning gray, blue eyes, very fat
cheeks, aud well shaped hands aud feet.
His hands are soft aud smooth, ami do not
indicate a working mau. He wore a No.
8 1-2 patent leather shoes, made by J. Cam
meyer. Sixth avenue and Twelfth street,
New York, and his trousers buttons bore
the name of J. L. McEwIn, also of New
York. A black four-in-haud tie, with red
dots, bore the name ot James L. Miller,
303 Smithaeld street, Pittsburg. His
clothing was of good material, though
somewhat worn, and in his cuffs he wore
n pair of gold link cuff buttons, each set
with a small turquoise.
The body is still at Lee's undertaking es

commendable and should meet with the
prompt response not only of the ministers
(the creator, with the press, of public sen
timent), but ot every right-minded citizen.
"It would be my pleasure to preach on
the subject tiie following Sunday, as you
request, but previous arrangements will
make it impracticable. But I will take
occasion to make a short prelude on the
subject. I have already preached on
the subject gambling. I pray that success
may attend your efforts. I shall be willing
at aU timed to do anjthing I can as a
teacher of morals to enforce the principles
of good government.

Rev. Albort M. HUlikcr, of Epiphany
"1 leave the city to-night for a Ktay of
about two weeks, so that I cannot comply

the evil would, of course, be gladly said
