Two Protuinout St. Louis Lawyers Dis
grace a Court of Justice With
Which They Fail to Back Up in Coolet
Moments After the Adjournment
of the Court.
St. Lons, Mo., .March 10. Another
ol those exciting episodes which every
now and then relieve the local courts of
the charge of being conducted In a too
tediously decorous manner occurred In
Court-room No. 2, presided over liy Judge
Lulike, Saturday morning, and, although
no blows were struck, there passed be
tween the antagonistic attorneys words
which for downright capacity of pro
ducing permanent Ill-feeling, far sur
passed the usual knock-down ami inop
t he-floor arguments which the bellicose
barristers of the St. Louis bar are prone
to resort In moments of undue excitement.
As Is usually the case in such exhibi
tions, the principal figures were
quite prominent members of the bar,
and the squabble was tho sudden
bursting forth of flames which had beeu
kept In a state of subjugation for a very
long time. .For some months past .the
condemnation suits of the St. Louis &
San Francisco liailroad Company against
the L'vens & Howard Fire Jirick and Clay
Company have been before the Circuit
and Appeal Courts in this city, and during
the somewhat prolonged litigation Gen
eral John V. Noble has acted as attorney
for the plaintiff, w hile Mr. Jacob Klein
has conducted the case for the defendants.
The result of the trial before Judge
Lubke -was the rendering of a verdict
which gave the railroad possession of the
plaintiff's property, and ordered them to
pay the Evens and Howard Company $30,
000, and the Missouri Company $l'5,000.
Relieving the price fixed by
the jury for the condemned prop
erty too large, the plaintiff tookan appeal,
the result of which was that the
verdict of the court below was sustained.
On Friday Mr. Klein made a motion be
fore Judge Lubke for an order on the
Clerk of the Circuit Court for the money
which nan oeeu paid Into court by the
railroad, but the same day Judge Sher
wood, of the Supreme Court, granted
plaintiff a writ of errorand ordered a stay
of execution in thecase. Saturday morn
ing while Judge Lubke was engaged in
the trial of another case he stopped for an
TO IlEAIt MI!. KLEIN
in regard to his motion made the day be
fore. Mr. Klein opened by stating' that
from what he knew he would have to
doubt the genuineness of the telegram an
nouncing the issue of a writ of error by the
Supreme Court until he had seen the "writ
itself with the seal of the Supreme Court at
tached to it. He followed this quite broad
insinuation up with a strong intimation
limine believed the telegram a bogus one.
lie further said that from what he knew
of tho geutleinen on the other side, he
would expect them to do anything. At
this point General Noble arose, and.
though displaying a large amount of
well-controlled anger, calmly said: "1
would like the gentleman to be more spe
cific. I would like him to state whether
lie means his remark to be personal."
"You can make a homeward application
of my remarks if you choose," was Mr.
General A'oMe, who had taken his seat,
again arose and, under the pressure of a
considerably larger supply of wrath, said:
Tour Honor, the courts in this city have
been so often disgraced by personal en
counters that I really feel that, as un
honorable practitioner, 1 cannot continue
to practice my profession without brawls
aud personal encounters, I shall be oblig
ed to abandon it altogether."
Judge Lulike rebuked Mr. Klein and
stated that he believed the telegram to be
Mr. Klein rose and excitedly said that
lie had doue nothing for which he felt he
OUGHT TO APOLOCI.K.
He made the remark with a full conscious
ness of the full force of what lie was say
ing, and of the truth of the allegations,
lie further said: "General Noble him
self, who had repudiated the homeward
application of the remarks so forcibly,
lias himself approached me"
At this moment General Noble leaped
quickly to his feet, clenched his lists,
and moved toward Mr. Klein, saying:
"1 have appealed to the Court for pro
tection. I'll not permit this liar to
stand her and make these false accu
sations. Mr. Klein turned very pale
but said nothing, and sat down when the
Conrt ordered him to do so. The Court
then proceeded to hear the case on trial,
when Mr. Klein again jumped up and
shouted: "Your Honor, I want to know
if you won't make Noble apologize for
calling me a liar?" Judge Lubke took
BO notice of the question, and simply
eaid to the other lawyers: "Go on with
the case." Mr. Klein was bent upon
having his motion heard for an order on
the other side to apologize to defendant's
attorney, and iu a low voice demanded:
"Will your Honor make Noble apologize
for calling me a liar in open Court."
The Judge still remained silent and
even a third repetition of the question
failed to move his Honor to decide upon
THE MOTION VIM APOLOGY,
whereupon Mr. Klein, in a somewhat
Botto voce tone, w hich was not audible at
a greater distance than twelve or fifteen

1 MR. ku:ix
was geen shortly after the occurrence
He said : "It is a matterof fact that there
hat been a little feeling between General
'oblo and myself, which grew out of a
very Insulting remark which he made to
me in court a short time ago. We were
engaged in an argument in the same ease
.which was under discussion this morning.
General .Noble was speaking, and in tin)
course of his remarks he made use of iho
totally uncalled for expression to me (hat
he practiced law like a lawyer and not
like a mountebank. I retorted, telling
the Court that it could decide which of
us was the lawyer, and which the
mountebank. The language he used
to me on that occasion was ml ire
ly unprovoked, and It struck deep an I
certainly did arouse in me feelings of
animosity. Fully eight or nine lawyers,
w ho were present in Court that day, called
me and stated that they considered Gen
eral Noble's attack an unwarrantable in
sult. Now with regard to this morning's
affair I would like to say that if 1 had
been allowed to explain the full meaning
of my preliminary remarks regarding that
telegram More General Noble's excited
condition took possession of the situa
tion, the trouble oii'jht to have been
averted. The telegiamstated that astay
of execution had bet n granted by the Su
preme Court which was, as a matter of
fact, false. A stay of execution can only
lie granted after proper bond lias been
tiled, which in the present case has not
been done.- If I had had a hearing Gen
eral Noble would have found that there
was no foundation for all his virtuous in
dignation." "What step arc you going to take
"What do you mean?"
"Well, it isn't ended, is it?. Won't
there be a"
"What! Atrip over the river! Chal
lenge! Duel! oh no; as far as I am
concerned the affair is ended. General
Noble is an older man than I am, but I
remember General Butler's remark w ith
regard to a certain Chief Justice who had
sat dowa on him. The General re
marked, I am younger than he is and have
a better chance of getting even!"
General Noble was also visited, lie
made a statement of the affair which suli
tially agreed with the above account. He
did not seem to think that a sanguinary
termination of the affair was among the
Young Iloroea of the Dime Novel School.
Oil City, Pa., March 10. A band of
would-be cowboys, whose members do
not average ten years of age, has been
broken up in Franklin by the spanking
process liberally administered by paternal
hands. The boys had lixed their plans in
a manner that would have done credit to
Ihe worst desperado of the West. They
held their meetings, matured their
plans, and a few days ago had
everything in readiness for the departure.
Their captain, familiarly called "Dead
wood Jim," gave the Ileal command. In
order to have no cause to return he said
each member of the band must poison his
motlicr. lie promised to produce tho
poison and have it on hand the next dav,
when it would be divided. All the boys
were to poison their mothers in the eve
ning, and morning was to liml
them far away. ' No doubt they
would have carried out their dia
bolical plot but for one small seven-year-old
youngster who was afraid his mother
would suffer too much. The Captain to
satisfy him agreed to apply the poison on
the servant-girl first, and if she died eas
ily then the mother must follow. The
servant-girl happened to overhear the nr.
gument and informed the boys' parents.
The result was that each particular mem
ber of the gang was interviewed with a
strap in the woodshed.
Lynchers Foiled. "
Cincinnati, 0., March 10. It has
leaked out that at the trial last week of
lierner, one ol the Kirk murderers, there
was a plot agreed upon to strangle him in
the presence of tlieacting judge. A score
or more of the farmers, w ho are residents
of Hamilton County, have become so dis
gusted with the dcla.vsnud postponements
that they are indignant, ami had not Uer
ncr been closejy guarded bv the olicers
and the crowd compelled to keep at a re
spectable distance, there would have
been a lynching. One of the farm
ers had a lariat in hia pocket. The plot
was lor one man to throw the noose
of the rope over tho head of the mur
derer, and then tho remainder of .the
plotters, twenty-five in number, were to
take hold of the other end of the lar
iat, and pull it until life was extinct.
That the plot was actually about to be
carried out seems to be a fact, and it is
said that the oflleers were apprised of
it. Hence they guarded the prisoner

Ni:w YoiiK, March 10. The fight be

Cooper for the Chairmanship of the Be
publican County Committee w axes hotter,
and yesterday tue politicians were ns
busy as though it were not Sunday. As
the contest is to be decided to-morrow
eveulng the fight excites the liveliest in
terest, because of the bearing it may have
on Arthur's chances for the Chicago nom
ination. O ISricn leads the "boys" and
Cooper the "better element." President
Arthur dares not offend either faction, as
both profess to be his friends. To-day
both sides claim that they will win the
tight, and the significant threat is made
that if O'Brien is elected n campaign club
will be formed to handle the election
money, which would otherwise go into
the hands of the County Committee.
O'lirien's opponents say that if t lie Fed
eral olllee-holders defeat him he may
throw the National delegates from the
districts lie controls against Arthur.

a Lose Residence at Wash
ington. (Correspondence Rochester Democrat.)
No city upon tho American continent lias
a larger flouting population than Washing
ton. It is estimated that during the ses
sions of congress twenty-five thousand peo
ple, whuse homei are in various parts of
this and other countries, make this city
their place of residence. Stme come here
attracted by the advantages the city oilers
for making the acquaitanco of public men;
others liavo various claims which they
wish to presctit, while the great majority
gather hew, us tho crows flock to the car
rion, for tho solo purpose of getting a mor
sel at the public crib. Tho luttcr class, as
a general thing, originate the many schemes
which terminate iu vicious bills, all of
which are cither directed at tho public
treasury, or toward that revenue which tho
black-mailng of corporations or private
enterprises may bring.
While walking down Pennsylvania are
nue tho other day I met Mr. William M
Ashley, formerly of your city, whose long
residence here has made him unusually
well acquainted with tho operations of the
Having made my wants in this partiou
lar direction known, in answer to an iuterg-
ative, Mr. Ashley said :
"Yes,during my residenco here I have
becomo well acquainted with tho "Third
House"' as it is termed, and could tell you
of numerous jobs, which, like tho "Heath
en Cninee," ore "peculiar."
''You do not regard tho lobby, as a body,
vicious, do you ?"
"Not neeessarilly so, there are good and
bad men comprising tliat body; yet there
have been times when it muit be admitted
that the combined powers of tho "Third
House" has overridden the will of the peo
ple. The bad influence of tho lobby can
ba seen in numerous blood-bills that are
introduced nt every session."
"But how can these be discovered ?"
"Easily enough to the person who lias
made the thing a study. I can detect them
at a glanee."
"Tell me, to what bills do you refer
"Well, take the annual gas bills, for in
stance. They are introduced for the pur
pose ol bleeding the Washington Gas Light
company. They usually result in an invest
igating committee which nover amounts to
anything more than a draft upon the pub
lic treasury for tho expenses of the investi
gation. Anothor squeezo is the abattor
bills, as they are called. These of course
are fraught by butchers and market-men.
The first attempt to force a bill of this dis
cretion was in 1877, when a prominent
Washington politician offered a fabulous
sum for the frenchise."
"Anything else iu this line that you think
of, Mr. Ashley ?"
3" Yes, there is job to reclaim the Potomac
flats, which had it become a law would
have resulted in aa enormous steal. The
work is now being done by the
Government itself, and will rid the place
of that malarial atmosphere of which we
hear so much outside the city."
"During your resilience here have you
experienced tho bad results of living in
this climate 1"
"Well, while I have not at nil times en
joyed good health. I am certain that the
difficulty which laid me up so long was not
malarial. It was something that had
troubled me for years. A shooting, sting
ing pain Hut at times attacked different
parts of my body. One day my right arm
and leg would torture me with pain, there
would be great redness, heat and swelling
of the parts; and perhaps tho next day the
left arm and leg would be similarly affect
ed. Then ngain it would locate in some
paiticular part of my body and produce a
tenderness which would well nigh drive me
frantic. There would be weeks at a timo
that I would be afllicted with an intermit
ting kind of pain that would como on every
afternoon and leave me comparatively free
from suffering during the balance of the
twenty-four hours. Then I would have
terrible paroxysms of pain coming on at any
time during the day or night when I would
be obliged to lio upon my back for hours
and keep ai motionless at possible. Every
time I attempted to move a chiliy sensation
would pass over my body, or I would faint
from hot flashes. I suffered frem a spasm
odic contraction of the muscles and a sore
ness of the back and bowels, and even my
eyeballs become sore and distressed mo
greatly whenever I wiped my face. I be
came ill-tempered, peevish, fretful, irritable
and desperately despondent."
"Of course you consulted the doctors re
garding your difficulty t"
"Consults 1 them? well I should tay I
did. Some told mo I had ncuraljjia; ethers
that I had inflammatory rheumatism, . for
which there was no cure, that I would be
afllicted for all my life, and thattiuie ftlono
would mitigate my sufferings."
"But didn't they try to relievo your mise
"Yes, they vomited and physiced me,
blistered and bled me, plasterod and oiled
me, sweat, steamed, and everything but
frozo me, but without avail."
"But how did you finally recover?"
"I had a friend living m Michigan who
had been nfllicted in a similar way and had
been cured. He wrote mo regarding hit
recovery and advised me to try tho remedy
which cured him. I procured a bottle and
commenced its use, taking a table-spoonful
after each meal and at bed timo. I had
used it about a week when I noticed a de
crease of tho soreness of the joints and a
general leeling of relief. I persevered in
its uso and finally got so I could move
arouud without limping, when I told my
friends that it was Warner's Sate Rheuma
tic Curo that had put me on my feet."
"And do you regard your cure as per.
"Certainly, I haven't been so well iu
yean as I am now, and although I have
utBu Buujccieu 10 irequent ami severe
changes of weather this winter, I have not
felt the first intimatiou of the return of my
"Do you object to tho publication of this
interview, Mr. Ashley?"
. "Not at all, sir. I look upon it as duty
I owe my fellow creatures to alleviate their
sufferings so far as I am aide, and any
communication regarding my synip'oms
and cure that may be sent to me at 500
Maine avenue will receive prompt and care
"Judging from your recital. Mr. Ashley,
there must be wonderful curative proper
ties about this medicine?"
"Indeed, there is, sir, for no man suffer
ed more nor longer than did I before this
remedy g:ive me relief."
"To go back to the original subject, Mr.
Ashley, I suppose you see the same famil
iar faces about the lobby session after

New faces are constantly seen and o'd ones
disappear. The strain upon lobbyists i

to this tho demoralizing effect of late hours

A negro named Wm. Singleton, who

ed some washing thet belonged to them;
he refused to surrender the property and
when they started to take it, he prevented
them by striking and choaking them. They
made him pay a fine for this and when he
returned from conrt, finding them both in
his shop, he drew a knife and unceremoni
ously slashed them until both lay prostrat
ed at his feet, bleeding from two or three
ugly wounds each. Tho women's
are Lena and Amelia Wright. The former
is cut in the face and on the left arm; the
litter hae a long cut across her left shoulder
blade and another in the left temple, tak

others, Mr. Stephen Rradly joined in the
