THE CANTIENY TRIAL
Drawing to a Clos'—The Jury to Be
Charged This Morning Yeste
The public interest in the Cantieny murder j
trial increased yesterday and the crowd at j
the court house was much greater than on i
Tuesday. After the court room was filled to j
Its utmost capacity the doors were all ordered j
slosed, anil none were admitted except on j
business. Nevertheless a crowd of several |
hundred bung about the court house, stand- j
ing in the halls and on the steps of the build- I
ing. The concourse was a motley one in ap
pearance and included some decidedly queer
looking people. The fascination of a murder
trial must affect some natures strongly for
some pushed and almost fought for admit
tance, and ouce inside the court room
seemed perfectly content to stand for hours,
crowded into uucoinfortable positions, in an
atmosphere which was almost stifling. There
was nothing of a sensational nature
developed in the trial yesterday,
and the interest was centered principally
upon the endeavor of the defense
to make out a case of justifiable homicide.
The trial was not resumed until 10 o'clock
because of the absence of a witness for the
defense, whose testimony it was claimed was
THE DEFENSE RESUMED.
The first witness called was William An
derson, the hackman, who had driven OHicer
Grattan to the scene of the shooting. As he
came to the front of the Windsor bouse, the
first lie saw was three men walking in front
of two policemen. Grattan got out of the
hack and struck one of the men twice,
knocking him down the last time. The other
officer struck one of the men on the side
walk, He saw one run and a moment after
heard two shots.
TKYING TO IMPEACH GORMAN.
At tbe conclusion of tbis witness' evi
dence, Mr. Davis, forthe state, moved that
the indictments found a number of years
ago by the grand jury against Cantieny and
Gorman be taken in evidence. Gorman bad
said upon cross-examination that lie and
Cantieny had never been indicted together.
He wished to show the jury that Gorman had j
lied. Mr. Woolly in answer contended that
the cross-examination was upon irrelevant
matters. The motion was overruled. Mr.
Davis then offered in evidence the Indict
ments, together with the records of the court,
showing the trial and conviction of Gorman,
and no objection was made by defense.
Officer Leonard was then put upon the
stand, who swore that Officer Laughlin did
not carry a club, but a cane. Officer Grid
tan testified to the same fact, and Officer
Lawrence testified that Gorman when ar
rested denied having been with Cantieny and
Parker. Officers Hill and Hem swore thai
they bad heard (form an tell this to Lawrence.
Gorman was then called and swore that he
bad never made such a statement to Law
Attorney Davis here offered city ordinance
No. 7, relating to the nature of public mis
demeanors. This was objected to, upon the
ground that this was not rebuttal evidence.
The motion was allowed. Gorman was again
called and was asked if be did not plead
guilty In the municipal court to having
broken the peace. This was objected to by
the defense, and the objection was sustained.
A back man named Merrill was next
called, but testified to nothing new, his evi
dence substantiating that of Anderson.
IN* THE AFTERNOON.
Court adjourned in the morning at 11:30
o'clock and opened at 1:30 o'clock in the af
ternoon. The attendance was larger than
ever, and the efforts to Bret in and obtain
standing room were more desperate than be
fore upon the part of the morbid creatures
who seem to regard murder trials as the
most entrancing of entertainments. County

ll is appearance, however. Indicates that the
worry and excitement of the trial Is wearing
upon him. His complexion is sallow, ami
he has a jaded look that betokens mental
suffering. Mr. Davis asked the jury to con- j
sider will the evidence, and to contrast the
character of the witnesses for the
prosecution With those of Can
ttcnv and Gorman. He claimed
that Cantieuy had with premeditation started
out with a revolver, intending to shoot
Laughlin, and had with this purpose In his
heart enticed him sway from the lighted ave
nue into the darkness of a tide street and
there (hot him down. He dwell upon the
enormity of the crime of murder, and said
the theory of the defense tfca: the killing was
iv self -defense was altogether improbable — i
an Ingenious plan to save a man who had
killed an officer while be was doing his duty '
in protecting the lives and property of the
citizens of Minneapolis. The testimony of
all witnesses was that the shots of I.^uahlin
and Cantieny were simultaneous, so the
prisoner did not think he was obliged to
•hoot to save his life. When he turned the
corner his band was in his pocket; did that
look like self-defense ? When he drew
Laughllu from the street into the darkness of
the ui<;ht and coldly and deliberately shot him ,
to death*, did that look like self-defense ? Did it
look like self-defense for him to throw hi* :
revolver into the water? When the officers j
tailed to arrest him, he said with the bravado I
of a ruffian, "Yon needn't be afraid. I'm on
to It." Contrast the statement of Robert
Laugbliu who died saying. "1 did my duty," ;
with the twaddle of convicted felons. Do
you expect truth from a man who has tbe
face aud eye of this man Uantienyl Tbe j
evidence of Cantieuy and Gorman is uncor- i
roborated, and it is a travesty to oppose the
dyiug statement of Robert Lauyhiin with I
the cunning story of such men. When Can

THE PFrr\*E OF I-.NTIFNY.
Mr. Woolly first asked tbe court to charge
the jury concerning the differeut d egrets of
murder of which the defendant might be
found guilty, also as to what constitutes a
felony and a misdemeanor. Ho also read a
number of references to the court bearing
upon tbes.' point*. He then commenced bis
plea by referring lv grandiloquent language
to the dignity of the law. etc.. .ir.d gave a re
view of the conduct of intieny. Gorman
and Parker nn the fatal night, showing how
they carelessly wandered out on the street
and tad walked lack to Cantieny's saloon,
where Cantieny, by the merest accident,
picked v;*- a revolver and put It in his pocket,
Tbey started out, Cantieny still wearing his
slippers aud walked along, stopping to talk
to poiiccmen and going to Know lea' saloon.
where tbey drank a glass of beer. Was there
auvlbing to Indicate any design or premedi
tation to commit a felony! Starting tore
turn home tut heard shots in the direction
of tbe Manitoba depot and hastened taoir
pace slightly. When between Second
and Third avenues Laughlin .came
up behind and passed them.
Gorman made a remark "There goes . a man
from Maine!" The ; remark probably in
censed Laughlin, for he turned and came
back and said, "what are you : doing
at this timed the night?" Laughlin did
not arrest him there, but waited until' they
got to Anthony. Kelly's warehouse, when he
struck Gorman and turned him over to
Grattan, and then struck Cantieuy upon the
neck. Cantieny, with the probability of an
arrest staring him in tbe face and hearing
Gorman cry "Don't murder me," started to
run with Laughlin after him. Cantieny
hears first the snap of his pursuer's revolver
aud then a shot coming from about fifteen
feet behind him. He pulls out his pistol and
fires back, and keeps on running until he
comes to Bassett's ereek^where he throws the
pistol into the water. It should be borne in
mind that these men were sober; all wit
nesses saye one agree to this. They had
made no disturbance, because witnesses who
heard the row between Laughlin and them
had not beard any noise. Cantieny had
never known Lamrhlin and could therefore
have had no grudge against him.
If he had planned to kill him why did he not
do it before the other officers came up, and
why did he run away. "He described the of
ficiousness of certain policemen, aud com
mented upon the habit which some officers
have of clubbing and abusing citizens who
have done nothing wrong. No evidence had
been introduced to show that these men had
been guilty of a breach of the peace. If
Laushlin then struck, abused them'and fired
at Cantieny he did so at his own risk and
! paid the penalty. Concerning tne effort of
I the state to blacken Cantieny's record, be
I said that he had, so far as the evidence
j introduced shown, lead a good life
i for ten years past. He was sent to the re
form school when 14 years old, but the mis
j takes of his boyhood should not be thrown
jup in after years, especially since he had
| changed his course of life. Mr. Woolley
i closed with an eloquent plea for the riirht of
citizens to defend themselves when attacked
by men who act in violation of the very law
which they are supposed to iuforce.
Git was nearly 6 o'clock when Mr. Woolley
concluded, and Judge Koon decided not .to
charge the jury until this morning. Court
was according adjourned.
The goreeous flag flying at full mast over
the postoffice was a subject of some comment
yesterday, and that the office had "flopped"
was frequently said. The commission of
Postmaster Laraway will run for over a year
yet, but it is said some good Democrats have
been developed recently within the walls of
the postoffice. Its flag was not the only one
that kissed the breezes yesterday. A large

and another ever the Citizens' bank, on Nic

The salute of a hundred guns, talked of by
the Democrats, was not fired. The only
thing fired was a host of Democratic hearts,
and many Republican ones, too. The dawn
of a new era was the theme of many tongues
all day, and the demand for advance news
from Washington was so great that the large
edition of the Globe was exhausted before

Congressman Washburn telegraphs from
Washington the announcement of the agree
ment of both houses of congress to the ap
propriation for the new Minneapolis govern

early be recommenced. Our retiring con
gressman also felicitates himself on the fact
that the last vote of his career was in favor
of placing Grant on the retired list.
Tt seems to be the opinion of many men
who are in position to know that Minneapolis
will spread north and south and the advance
in property will follow in that direction in
stead of east and west, and acting on this
belief owners of property on those streets
are expecting to realize on it. This is
smiled at by dealers who are holding else

dealer, "that be rezards Fourth street as the

A conductor on the Milwaukee road was
speaking yesterday of the great travel South
from Minneapolis this season, which induced
the writer to question a ticket seller on the
subject. Said he: "Yes, it's a fact. Noth

The Girard company concluded its engage
ment at the Grand last evening, having
played to two good houses. "A Cold Day
When We Get. Left" seems to have been a
taking title, and as the weather was not cold,
the company was not left. „ The attendance
nt the matinee was', average • and
at night large, and at each per
formance the lauirhter and applause were
the same. Frank Will and Charlie Burke
were the principal laugh-inakera and Grade

went on her shape alone and was rather too
conscious, but all of the several parts were
well enough taken. The fun never slackens
and as it is easy, convulsing fun, the house

IX HONOR OF EMMET.
Last ni<"ht the anniversary of the birth' of
Robert Emmet, the Irish patriot, was hand
somely celebrated, by the literary society of
that name. The- exercises were listened to by
a large and appreciative audience and con
sisted of appropriate essays and recitations.
The life and death of Emmet were well told
in oue essay, and his address before sentence
was admirably recited. "Shamus O'Brien"
was dramatically declaimed and several
others of a similar character followed. The
society is in a flourishing condition and last
night's successful entertainment will give
the work a new impetus. The improvement
of many of its members is marked and the
good work of the organization is marked.
LECTURES TO YOUNG MEN.
The third of the series of "talks'' to young
men at the parlors of the Y. M. C. A. was
given last evening. The attendance was
about the same as usual and the interest was
marked. Dr. A. W. Abbott was the lecturer
aud his subject The Young Man's Strength;
What it Is. He talked for about half an hour
and gave some wholesome and important
facts. After the lecture he invited his audi
tors to ask such questions as had suggested
themselves, and the result was to draw out
.considerable more information.
There are five more lectures of this series
to be delivered weekly and varied by occa
sional receptions. ' They are free and all
young men are cordially invited to be pres
ent and enjoy them.
THE CHAMPIONSHIP RACE.
The interest taken in the championship
race between Alger of Minneapolis and Ed
dy and Barron of St. Paul was so great as
to draw out an audience that completely
filled Washington rink last night. The
friends of each were there ready to back
their respective favorites with either tongue
or cash, and the cheers that continually rent
the air showed the intense tnterest. The
three men got off together with Alger in the
lead, but Eddy pressed to the
front on the second lap, . amid great cheers.
Soon Alger regained the lead and the cheers
were deafening. In this it was maintained
throughout, first Alger leading and then
Eddy. Barrou never showed front in the
race, and at the eleventh lap dropped out.'
On the twenty-first lap Alger and Eddy were
abreast, and came down the stretch for all
that was in them, Alger getting to the front
and winning the first three-mile heat in 10
minutes and 12 seconds. Tbe race is best
two heats in three, for a purse of $50.
THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.
The Can t-Get-A way club held sway at the
Crocker rink last night, with what was one
method of celebrating inauguration day.
At 8 o'clock a company of Continental
troops marched with a band to the Milwaukee
depot and there met Messrs. Cleveland,
Blame, Butler and St. John and Belva Lock-?
wood, and escorted them to the rink. This
popular place of amusement was jammed
with sp?ctators,and the surface quite covered
with skaters, many of whom were masked and
in costume, A detachment of Ames zouaves
was also on band and participated in the
promenade. The presidential race was the
feature of the evening. Gotten up in humor
ous costumes and wearing masks that bore a
ludicrous resemblance to the faces of the il
lustrious quintet, the racers started. St.
Jobu refreshed himself with frequent
draughts of amber fluid, Butler did the clown
act to perfection, and Belva was handicapped
with her skirts, while Cleveland and Blame
had a close race, the former, of course, win
ning- 219 laps to 182.

Chat About the Society Prospects at the
It is evident that the next administration
is to be conspicuous for something else than
the display it will make in society. It is to
be a business administration. Mr. Cleve
land himself is a business man. He is not
fond of general society. He enjoys himself
more at his desk than at a dinner table. ' To
all of his recent callers he has put questions
about cabinet candidates looking to their
ability to do desk work. Mr. Cleveland ap
parently does not appreciate genius unless it
is accompanied by ability to perform
a great amount of work. He intends
to surround himself with men who are
actuated by his spirit. I have not heard a
single one of his callers report him as ask
ing: a question about a man's social stand
ing or wealth iv connection with a cabinet
place. Judging by the most prominent men
in tbe list to-day the uext cabinet will not
do much in the , way of entertaining. Mr?
Bayard, who is now booked for secretary of
state, has a daughter who goes out in soci
ety a great deal, but his wife is an invalid.
She sees people who come to see her, but
she is unable to go out and return calls, and
could not endure the fatigue of anything like
elaborate entertaining. Mr. Lamar is a
widower, with no family with him. . He
lives the life of a student recluse, and while
he is in the habit of going out to 'din
ners cares nothing for general society. Gar
land is also a widower. He lives in the
plainest possible way upon Massachusetts
avenue, where his mother keeps house for
him. She is a lady of plain, simple ways,
and has never gone in society. It is not
probable that she will very much change her
habits of life when her son becomes attorney
general. Mr. Manning, who is now classed
as the future secretary of the treasury, has
recently married. He has means and un
derstands the art of entertaining. His wife
is said to be by those who have seen her an
interesting lady who is fond of society.
When it comes to the class of what is con
sidered the undetermined appointments,
McClellan still occupies a prominent place.
Mr. Cleveland has spoken of him to a num
ber of prominent men as ,if it were abso
lutely certain that be was to be bis secretary
of war. When a prominent Democrat called
upon Mr. Cleveland the other day McClellan
was spoken of. This gentleman said lie did
not think that it was a good plan to appoint
any man secretary of war who had been in
volved in any of the feuds among the
leading officers of the army. He
thought as a general rule it would be better
to make a civilian appointment. Mr. Cleve
land, in speaking of the old quarrel between
McClellan and his former associates, said:
"All this occurred twenty years ago. I
don't think this point is a serious one. I
am sure it would not effect McClellan now."
The positive way in which Mr. Cleveland
spoke of McClellan led this gentleman to
believe that Mr.- Cleveland's mind was
absolutely made up on this subject. • Gen.
McClellan has spent one winter here recently.
He kept bouse while here and en
tertained upon a very liberal scale.
His wife, who was the daughter of
the late Gen. Marcy, was very well
known in Washington before her family
came here. Her father was, for a number of
years after his retirement, a resident of
Washington. She has spent a good portion of
a number of winters here visiting him. The
Blames last'winter lived in the old Marcy
house. The McClcllans have several child
ren. The oldest is a daughter who was
brought out here two years ago. She is
handsome, stylish and popular. One of Gen.
McClellan's sons is a student at Princeton.
Gen. McClellan has an ample fortune.

Piles Cured Without Using Knife or Ligature
There are many at the age from thirty to sixty
who are troubled with frequent evacuations of
the bladder, often accompanied by a slight
smarting or burning sensation and weakening the
system in a manner tbe patient cannot account
, for. On examining the urinary deposits a ropy
sediment will often be found, and, sometimes
email particles of albumen will appear, or the
color will be of a thin, or milklsh hoe, again
changing to a dark and torpid appearance.
There are many men wbo die of this difficulty,
ignorant of the cause, which is the second stage
of weakness of vital organs. Dr. S. will
