A Cursing Parson Who Followed
Hotspur's Advice to
He Swore Boandly at the Man who Brought
Him Into Condemnation
at the Bar.
However, He Will Pay Five Dollars a
Week for the Support of
New York, April 4. If the Rev. Grif
fith H. Humphrey was surprised at the
decision rendered in the .Special Sessions
yesterday when Justice Smith notified
him that ho would be compelled to pay
$5 a week for the support of tho child of
Laura C. Jones, of which he Is charged
with being the father, ho did not mani
fest it. All the counsel In the case were
present and tho seats for spectators were
well filled, tho Injunction of secrecy hav
ing been removed. The defeudant occu
pied a seat uear the trial table. His
face was pale, and the ouly Indication
of nervousness was an occasional twitch
lug of the fingers of the right hand.
The complainant, Miss Jones, was not
present, but she was represented by
Owen E. Owen. After the witnesses had
signed their depositions, Justice Smith
took his seat and iuqulred If counsel had
anything further to offer. There being no
response, he said, addressing Mr.
Humphrey: "The prosecution has estab
lished the truth of the allegation, and tho
decision of the Court is that you furnish
security in the sum of 500 for the pay
ment of five dollars per week for the sup
port of the child of Laura C. Jones."
Mr. Humphrey slightly Inclined his head
but said nothing. Counsel for defendaut
immediately entered an appeal, and se
curity for the appearance of the defendant
was given by Mr. ltobert Lewis, one of
the deacons of the church of which Mr.
Humphrey is pastor. This ended the pro
ceedings and the Court passed to the con
sideration of other cases.
ALL THE PARTIES IXTERESTKD
then withdrew from the court-room to the
rotunda, where they stood in little groups
discussing tne result. Mr. Owen was ac
companied by his son and daughter, the
latter a girl of fifteen years, and, with one
or two others, they were standing on one
side of the corridor. Pastor Humphrey
and Mr. lieese, one of his friends, were
on the other side. A moment later the
attention of the reporter was attracted by
loud talk. The groups had broken up,
and there was au animated dialogue going
on between Pastor Humphrey and Mr.
Owen. The conversation was carried on
In the Welsh language. It was very evi
deut, however, that the presence of l'as
tor Humphrey's enemy had so excited
that gentleman that even the Christian
resignation with which he had so meekly
borne his troubles, could not restrain
him, and he poured forth
VIALS OF WRATH
on the head of the luckless Owen who re
torted, aud the preacher, approaching
closely to him, shook his finger near
Owen's face as he continued to abuse
him. Owen fell back In good order and
Mr. Humphrey followed him. The excit
ed pair gesticulated wildly, describing a
semi-circle In their movement arouud the
corridor, much to the amusement of spec
tators. "What did Mr. Humphrey call you?"
was asked of Mr. Owen after the pastor
had cooled down.
"He cursed me," said Mr. Owen, "and
charged me with having been instrument
al in bringing the charge aainst him. I
denied this, telling him that Miss Jones
had made the charge, and that I simply
gave her my aid in getting redress for
her wrongs. He then coutiuued to abuse
"You ought to have heard what Mr.
Humphrey said," spoke up Mr. Owen's
little daughter. "He cursed and swore
just like any man on the street."
"Yes," said a young man who also
spoke Welsh, "he called Mr. Owen names
that I would not repeat."

Convicts Confessing to a Cold-
Warrensbl'ro,.Mo., April 4. Charles
and W. II. Hamilton brought here, yes
terday, from Sedalia, for the murder of
the man whose mangled body was found
on the railroad tracks near here on Sun
day night, have confessed to one
of the most atrocious murders yet
recorded. The two Iluniiltons are
not related in any way,
one being an American aud the other a
Bavarian. They first met in the Jeffer
son City Penitentiary, two years ago,
w here both were serving time. Their vic
tim was Carl Steldle, a machinist in the
Missouri Pacific shops in Sedalia, who
had saved up a few hundred dollars and
was going to California, ('has. Hamilton
said in his confession thut he was dis
charged from prison six or eight weeks
ago. He went to Warrensburg three
weeks ago and was employed as porter
In tho Simmons House. At nine
o'clock on Sunday nifjlit Hilly Hamilton
came to him there and told him that he
had fetched a man from Sedalia on the
way to California, ami wanted Charles to
go with them as far us Kansas City. They
went to the depot where Steldle was
waiting and persuaded him to come out
of tho depot. Charles Hamilton struck
him oh the head with a wrench and
choked him. Then they laid the body
across the rails and waited to see that
the train ran over It. They got about
875 apiece by the murder. v. H. Ham
ilton also made a confefession substan
tially corroborating the above.

and Means. Tho bill brought lu by Mor
rison is moderation Itself. Is there any
valid reason why any enlightened econo
mist should refuse to support It? It is to
be regretted thut this question of tariff
reform should depend on partisan consid
eration. It is a question in whoso
solution the welfare and property of the
entire people Is Involved. I would be
glad, indeed, If It wero totally eliminated
from partisan politics. It would then have
fairer play and better opportunities for
successful legislation. Nor do I despair
even now; some good work will result If
nothing more than debate. 1 maintain
that protection cripples Industry. It keeps
genius In. Its swaddling clothes. The
Custom-house Is a necessary evil. It is a
frontier system of affront and surrounds
the nation with a cordon of robbers. "

In the Danville investigation to-day
Cornelius Warrock, a native Virginian,
aged sixty-six, black as midnight, tall,
cadaverous, wearing long and flowing
locks, testified that he was a black Dem

ple of his race because he preferred pur.
Democracy to corrupt Republicanism.
"How were yu badly treated?" In

New York, April 4. The trial of Jesse
Williams, the mulatto who is accused of
gagging and binding Miss Margaret Har
vey, the sister-in-law of George H. Slone,
in the Slone flats on the night of March
8th, and packing up SHOO worth of silver
ware for removal, was begun yesterday
in the general sessions. The case Is in
teresting, mainly from Its resemblance
to the' celebrated HulJ murder case,
wherein Mrs. Dr. Hull was bound by the
mulatto, Chastine Cox, who, it was
always thought, had no intention of kill
ing the woman, but was bent simply on
robbery. There was an attractive array
of ladies In pretty bonnets and handsome
garments present. Williams, a medium
sized, slightly built mulatto, seemed to
be blandly unconscious of the ladies' fixed
gaze, ins Kinky nair was parted in tno
middle ana bruslied Into sleekness, ills
mustache was twisted into a slight curl.
The nicety of his dress amounted to
foppishness. He reminded the court
officers of Chastine Cox, and he sat In
the chair that Cox occupied during the
trial that resulted in his conviction and
death. Miss Harvey, a slender blonde,
very pretty, gave her testimony, which
did not differ materially from the story
already told of how Williams stole into
the room where she lay In bed with her
baby niece, choked her, gagged her,
dragged her from the bed; then she
fainted. Shu Identified Williams, whom
