Two American Women, Outcast
and Hated, Are Now Titled.

peror Justinian Tbelr Threatened Salt
Against Inspector Byrne, for Libel.
To once noted "WoodbuU and Claflin"
have come into public notice again this time
threatening suits for criminal libel. They
first astonished the public by opening a brok

York, then pub

which began aa a

ended by lnaufru

one more amased
the gossipy world
by marrying two
men a wealthy
banker and a bar
ooet. In all the an
nals of womanhood, since the days of ths
Byiatitine bmpreaa Theodora, there baa been
no mori' tiinrlosl instanc-eof fortune caprices
and only in the most sensational romances
can parallels lie found.
Victoria Claflin that waa, later Victoria
Woodhull. and still later Bin. Col. Blood, is
now Lady Riddulph Martin, of Hyde Park,
London; and Tennis C. Claflin la now Lady
Cook and Wounteaa of Monserrnl, wife of
Sir Francis Cook. To Americans who read
the daily papers from 1H70 to 1878 it is not
possible by any rhetoric to heighten the con
trast of the pictures presented by thia simple
statement of farts.
They have Issued from their retreat with
a threat to prosecute Inspector Thomas
Byrnes, of the N.-w ork police, who, they
claim in their complaint, ha spoken of them
in print as "adventuresses" and that was the
last straw. Mrs. Biddulph Martin (Victoria)
ays that her husband will take a house in
New York city ami prosecute by wholesale,
and Ladv Cook (Tennie C.) says she and her
.husband will prosecute the inspector and the
paper for alluding to her hnshand a a "dod

Chief Inspector Thomas Byrnes has lately
completed twenty-six years in the police de
partment of New York city, where he began
Dec. 10, 11. as patrolman. His promotion
has fiern rapid ami his succ.-. phenomenal.
In 1971 he led a large section of the polios
during t ho urnnge riots and won high encom
iums. A little Inter he unearthed the mys
tery of the Manhattan Slaving Institution
robbery, which proved Ins skill to sm-n a de
gree that he was made chief of the detective
bureau. Some of his successes in that de
partment are more interesting than any de
tailed by the most sensational writers of
detective romances. In more than one noted
burglary ho has been able, within six hours
after seeing tho work, to narrow the aearch

A MISSOURI SENSATION.
The Tragedy at Liberty Which Has Kicked
Up Such a Row.
Clay and Jackson counties. Mo., and all
the region roundabout Liberty, are excited
about a murder (If it be proper to so call it)
of which there were no witnesses. The man
silled was John Lewton, the man who killed
him is James L. Bheeta, a leading lawyer and
Lp9seV - 4pvr
lately prosecuting attorney, arid the cause
of the killing was the pretty 15-year-old wife
of Lewton; but only the two were present at
the fatal affray, of whom the one cannot tes
tify and the other need not.
The testimony presents some curious fea
tures. On the evening of Jan. 7 parties in
the store below the office of Sheets heard five
shot, and the next minute the lawyer ap
peared, going in a full run to the office of
Sheriff Oscar Thompson. The sheriff says
that the lawyer bounder! in, fell on his knees
and clasped those of the sheriff and cried
bitterly. In vain did the officer ask him
what was the matter; he only cried harder
and implored the sheriff to come to his office.
Tbey went, no one else leing allowed to enter
with them, and on the flixr lay the corpse of
John Iywton, the top of his head laid open
by one bullet, his heart pierced by another.
The most expert marks-imn. tiring with ter
fect deliberation, could not have plaeed either
shot more fatally. Indeed, such instant
death must have resulted from cither that
some experts insist that one or the other
must have been fired after the man fell.
JOHN IBTN Mils I.KWTON NIlEtTE
Still more curious U the fact that all the
gossi of the place knew the cause, knew be
forehand that Lewton intended to whip
Sheets and that Mheetx had seduced Lewton
wife, and the girl herself never denied it.
She is so very frank atxut it that the sister
and other relatives of the murdered man
readily forgave ber, wanted to effect a recon
ciliation and aro now befriending her. To
add to the oddity of the situation the sud
denly made young widow gave the details
freely to a correspondent '( Ine Kansas C ity
Times, and at bis request went to a gallery
and had her photograph taken for him to get
a picture for publication. Peculiar sort of
young widow, that.
She is but fifteen years old and married
Lew tou last summer at her home in Barry,
Ills. In September be took ber to Liberty
anil left her with his sister while he went on
to California to seek a situation. According
to her story, she got lonesome, bacassM in
lunate with another woman, was by her per
suaded to go about a good deal, met Sheetr at
Kansas City anil yielded to him, then res'tited
and confessed all to her uncle and sister-in-law.
Her husband returned, heard the story
as told by bis relatives, did a great deal of
unnecessary threatening as to how he would
"whale Sheers," went to the Intter's office un
armed and was killed.
The slayer was taken liefore Justice L P.
Ornv and released on $l..Vl bail. hick raised
a storm of popular indignation. The lawyer
was afraid to leave town lest should he
followed and lynched, though, as he savs, he
went twice to the depot to leave, but saw too
many enemies watching him. After n Mgttty
Inquest he was again arrested on theevi
dence there presented and consigned to jail,
all bail being denied. The wife had written
her huhand a frantic appeal for forgiveness.
which he fiiilM to get, nnd it fell intt
reporter's hands. The character of the child's
intellect may erhaps lie juo. -i fr-un the
concluding linos, viz.:
"John, I will sta with you the rest of my
days and be faithful and trim if you oniy
take me hack. I will d- right if it kills me.
I love you; I love. You say 1 do not appear
to regret having done w hat I have, but I do,
and you would know if you only knew my
heart. Write to me aud come one day this
week. Oood-by. Your loving wife to my

"His Honor, or Fstc's Mysteries," is
the title of a new novel by Cynthia Cleve

might commend it; but it is deficient as a
character study and as a reflection of the
