Mrs. Humphrey then hurried across

nue the. first man came nearer to her
and touched her on the shoulder, say
ing In an Inquiring tone of voice: "I
believe this Is Thirteenth street?"
"It Is," Mrs. Humphrey replied, calm
ly, "and you aud your friends behind
had better pass aloug." Without an
other word the desperado threw the lady
anaiust the Iron railing of one of the
houses aud said: "Lit go that bag or
beat voi n WUIXS OIT
on the railiug." Mrs. Humphrey shot
out her right arm and caught the villain
by the collar while she clung to her reti
cule with tlio other. The other two meu
then sprang forward aud bent the lady
backward over the railing, while she
screamed for assistance aud cluus to
the rctkule. The side from which the
lady's handkerchief protruded was to

The accounts of J. Farris Moore, Jury

examined the account aud claimed that it
was Illegal, there being no law In the

Under cross-examination, the witness

his docket fees ol $130. Witness called
attention of the Comptroller to the largo
per diems in this case and that officer, he
said, thought the account outrageous aud
conferred Ultli the Auditor respecting It.
The account was finally allowed. Cross-ex-uuiined
',. M ':ikeu, wiiii. s thought th-j
charges i. Ui.t cae w improper, as
th re were an uni ecess.i y number of per
diems charged fr attendance upon the
Court. At this point witness explained
thai his orders wen- to allow iieeoiints,
according to precedent, and that in his
examination of previous accounts of of

Libel Suit and a Criminal Prosecution
A reaJy on the Tapis A Nxe
-VtwYoKK, December 11. Mmc. Vic
toria Schelliug-Huelskemp, having been
greatly annoyed by Frederick Mordaunt,
alius Maurice A. Schwab, has placed the
case In the bands of her attorney, John E.
lSurke, of No. US Broadway, aud he Is
about to cause Mordaunt's arrest. Suit
will also bo brought against the Mail and
Kerens for libel, the grounds being tho
publication of an interview with
Mordauut, accusing Mmc. Huels
kernp of being a black
mailer, the paper having refused to make
a correction. Tho interview with Mor
daunt was to the effect that Mme. Huels
kamp had asked him to make a bogus
contract that she might show to her
father, aud so secure ,.'5,000 on con
dition that she would not go on
the Sige. Letters written by Mor
dauut to a lady on West Twenty
eighth street, and to another living on
West Forty-eighth street, are in Mr.
Burke's possession, and by means of
these and verbal testimony ho says he can
prove that Mordaunt tried to get one of
the ladies referred to in his power, in
tending to separate Mme. Huelskamp and
her husband aud to secure a reward from
Mr Moroslnl. Mr. Burke says the plan
was to have a certain young lady
MAKE VIOLENT LOVK TO ERNEST,
while Mordaunt looked after Mme.
Huelskamp. Falling In his purpose he
made tho statement to the Afat'f and Ex
press that It was Mme. Iluelskamp's in
tention to blackmail her father. The
only conclusion that Mr. Burke could
draw from the fact that the paper re
fused to insert a correction, was rhat
ttie Intimacy between Mr. Cyrus W.
Field, the owner of the paper, and Mr.
Morosinl was close enough to prevent the
publication of anything detrimental to
Mordauut while he was In the employ of
Mr. Morosinl. The lady on Twenty
eighth street, whom It Is alleged Mor
dauut tried to use as a tool in bis at
tempt to separate Victoria aud Ernest,
received the following letter from Mor
daunt: "Dear Bkktik It was impossible for
me to get there at four o'clock Saturday,
as 1 did not leave the Surrogate's office
until 4:15. Therefore, 1 am positive that
when I see you personally and explain
why, you will pardou the breach. Now,
Em', I must see you this afternoon or
evening, sure. I am on a piece of work
in which there is
VLKY Iltlx MONEY,
and I need Uie ;i--;stance of a true, loyal,
smart woman, such as you are. Thero
will lie big money also for you. This is
our business. I assure you that the past
experience has fully taught me to avoid
all and everything where there is even a
shadow of a risk. Should you have auy
other engagements break them, but at all
hazards meet me sure."
Mordauut then turned his attention to
'.ie West Forly-ei ;ht street lady, to
.vhom he represented himself as Freder
ick II. Thome. He wrote tfiat he was to
star uext season lu the dramatization of
Ouida's novel, "Strathmore," aud want
ed tho young lady to play the part of
Marion Vavasour. He told her to address
him in the care of "Mordaunt, So. M
East Fiftieth street." Mordaunt's char
acter became known to the lady also, be
fore she had known him long, and
HIS PROPOSITION WAS KKJht'TEO.
When his Interview was published In tho
MM and Express these ladies communi
cated with Mmc. Iluelskamp's lawyer,
aud iurnlsbcd him with the letters that
Mordauut had written, and told tho
story of his plans. One of the
letters to the lady on West Twenty-eighth
street was signed "Schwab."
Mm. Huelskemp said yesterday! "My
husband aud 1 have fully satisfied our
selves that Mordaunt is tho man who was
sent to the Penitentiary, and I learn that
he had just been released when ho at
tempted to make money out of us.
Wo are continually hearing of
evil things ho says of us, and as
the Mail and Express refuses
to retract, we will sne the paper for dam
ages, and Mordaunt criminally. We
would begin the case at once, but I am
sick with a terrible sore throat, and havo
had to cancel three engagements on that
account. I must sing before tho Balti
more Press Club on Friday, and It may bo
a week before wo can take any steps."
