Ftockton, Cal, Aug. lfl, A warrant was

remains at the morgue, and Mrs. Terry is

Rak Francisco, Aug. 1ft. Justice Field
resumed bis judicial duties yesterday, and
tat in the circuit court with Judge Sawyer
snd Judge J. D. Prower, of Kansas. He is
still constantly tinder the protection of a
deputv marshal, as is also Judge Sawyer.
As Mrs. Terry did not witnees the shoot
ing, and as there was no eviileiust before the
Stockton authorities connecting Justice Field
with Hie killing of Terry, it is considered
doubtful here whether the sheriff can en orce
the warrant for the arrest of Justice Fiel.l,
It is not known, however, what course tbe
justice's legal advisers will take.
United States Marshal Franks bas received
from Nagle the details of the affair. Nagle
ays be is confident that Terry drew back bis
Sand, after striking Justice Fluid, for tbe
purpose of pulling from his coat a knife he
was presumed to have carried, as be once
made affidavit that be always went armed.
It Is tbe theory of tbiste alsnit tbe United

she threw herself on her husband's body.

Sak Francihto, Aug. IS. When inter
viewed yesterday Sarah Althea made a poor
showing. She was attended in ber all-night
vigil by a male cousin, who cut a prominent
figure in the Sharon trial. After having al
most an atlai-k of hysterics she tnrned and
said: "I don't want to talk with you. The
newspapers have treated my husband bru
tally. I saw Field take a shot at him as he
was down." She then became melancholy,
and spoke of bow admirably suited were
Jude Terry Vdisposition and ber own. She
acted ber part admirably, but tbe cousin
looked wofully out of place, ami seemed not
to know where to put bis eyes. Sarah Althea
baa worked herself into believing 'l- saw
Field take a shot at Terry as be lay on the
floor. She seemed not to be able to under
stand that she bos tbe uuanimous testimony
of those who gave their evidence at tbe iu-qut-st
Always Carried a ristoL
On being asked whether she bad a pistol in
ber sacbel she replied: "Yes, I always car
ried a pistol, but the judge never did, and
that's why they shot down my darling un
armed." She was then asked why toe mo
ment she saw Justice Field she returned to
tbe car to get ber sacbeL She sai l she car

lie stolen. All the morning eople came in

Among those who arrived kite Wednesday
night was Clinton IL Terry, only son of tbe

stantially that all bis father's recant troubles
grew out of the evil influence of Surah Al

to prejudice bis father against bim. The son
lie was a different kind of a man after lie

little to do wtth him after bis second mar

The Attorney Oonaral Talks Again.
iMiiANAroi.m, hid., Aug. 1& Attorney
Oenoral Miller was seen again at his resi
dents yesterday, and asked if be bad any
thing further to say about the shooting of
Judge Terry by Deputy Marshal Nagle. tie
I see from the papers that the ar.tlon of the
deputy Is pretty generally Indorsed. It -pcar
to be considered that Nagle's presence
was necessary, and his action Justitlab e. J
do nol care to speak of the legal asiects cf the
rase. I do not know any rase analogous to it
In our history, aud I do recall that It bas ever
been necessary lie (ore to provide protection
for a Cnlted States judge. If the case conies
lo trial 1 suppose I will be called to testify,
but 1 question whether there will ever be a
trial. The grand Jurv luav refuse to act or
the coroner's jury may find It a case of Justi
fiable homicide, I have not examined the
legal side of the question, however. I thought
the protection of the officers of the law might
he necessary, and 1 knew something about
the desperate character of the man with
whom Justice Field had to deal. I thought of
trouble when the trial began, but of course
I did not look for It nt a way station or upon
the train. If the Justice's life was In danger,
though, be was as much entitled to the pro
tection of the oftlcer at an eating boose as in a
court or upon a bench.
Though the attorney general was very
guarded in bis utterances bis manner indi
cated very plainly that be believed Deputy
Nagle justi lied in shooting Terry.

s un n you nave extended to me. 1 believe
the framers of all constitutions, state and na
tional, shoul I be careful to recognize and ac)r
arate the executive and legislative branches
of tbe government, but I am sure the careful
framers of these instrumeuts did not have in
mind an occasion like this; and that I may
meet you here this morning as American eiti
xens charged, as you are, with responsible
public duties,in the assurance that upon what
ever lines we may differ we stand here to-day
having the high and consecrated purpose to
serve tbe public ends for which our state and
national governments are organized, and in
our resk.-tive places, to do what we can to
maintain social order, and to lift up & st at
home that its lust re may be seen abroad, the
dignity and honor of American citizenship.

does not stand by the administration of tbe
government under all circuiustences, whoever
may be at its head. Fellow citizens, 1 present
you to the president or the Cnited States.
Prolonged cheers and applause.

ions, personal to themselves, he turns
to the great body of tbe people who have only
one and that the highest concern of the gov

ants shall hear themselves well in the dis
charge of their duties. From that source I
thank yon most cordially for your earnest

A Fat Maiden Voyage.
New York, Aug. 10. Tbe new steamship
Teutouic,' of the White Star line, arrived at
her ' dock early yesterday morning and
landed her passengers. Tbe City of New
York beat her across the ocean by thirty
three minutes. Tbe Teutouic' time is 6
days, 14 hours and 33 minutes, and as it ap
pears in print seems to indicate that the Ten
tonic has made the fastest muiden voyage
on record. Tbe America's record for
maiden voyage is 0 days l. hours and 41
minutes. When it is considered, however,
that tbe ships of the present dav calculate
their time from the moment they get out of
sight of land until the moment tliey see the
first lights nr signs of their destination, it
will Le seen that tbe Teutouic bos not beaten
the time of the America.
