A New Experience for Gen. B.
F. Butler. x
SAT UPON BY A DISTRICT JUDGE.
Itefused a Hearing In Open Cos rt, and
Accused or Lying A Tension Case in
Which the Bistlnsuishetl Lawyer Gives
a 'Woman Advice That Results In Hei
Conviction of Perjury The General
Lays It to the Pure C'nssedness of a
Triply "Inferior" Judge.
Boston-, April 15 Gen. Benjamin F.
Butler, probably the foremost lawyer and
cross-examiner in the country, was yester
day crushed, sat upon, and ruled out of
court by a district judge of the United
States court. Butler feels his position
keenly, and the judge rather glories in
his achievement. Some time ago Gen.
Butler advised a neighbor of his down in
Lowell, Mrs. Clara Johnson, that she was
entitled to a pension. She had been mar
ried twice, but Butler decided that the
first marriage was illegal, and that the
second was lawful. The second husband
was married while the first was still alive,
but Butler, deciding as he did, told Mrs.
Johnson to tell the court she had been
married but once. This she did.
The General's Advice Was Bad.
The prosecution heard of the first so
called marriage and arrested Mrs. John
son on the charge of perjury. Gen. Butler
defended her, but she was convicted. But
ler at once apealed the case and tlaims to
have filed exceptions. It is on this latter
phase of the case that the general uow
finds Limtlf ousted from court. Mrs.
Johnson was yesterday brought before
Judge Carpenter, of the United States
court, for sentence. As soon as the court
came in District Attorney Allen, address
ing the judge, said: "I move for sentence
in the case of Clarietta Johnson, who
stands convicted of perjury, and whom I
ordered brought here this morning."
Cutler Given the Iioyal Snub.
Mrs. Johnson was brought into the
room, and Gen. Butler also came in, and,
taking a seat at the counsel's table, pro
ceeded to arrange a number of papers
ami documents. Soon the general rose
and stood for some minutes looking at the
court while the judge aud the district at
torney were in consultation. Then he
'"May it please your honor
Judge Carpenter It is forbidden for
you to address me at any time, Mr. But
ler. Gen. Butler I want to file
Judga Carpenter If yon want to file
anything, do it with the clerk, you can
not address me now nor at any other
Gen. Butler I have amotion. I have al
ready filed it.
Judge Carpenter Very well, file it with
the clerk. You cannot be allowed to ad
dress me at any time.
Gen. Butler Mrs. Johnson, in her own
proper person, files this motion. You can
do what you please with it.
Will Recognize Him No More.
The genernl then sat down, pulled a
cigar out of his pocket and began to chew
one end ot its now and then taking it out
and clinching his teeth firmly, as he
glanced around the court room. Then he
walked back and forth in front orthe
bench three or four times, while his honor
and the district attorney again consulted.
Sentence was then deferred. District
Attorney Allen stepped forward and the
judge said: "Mr. Allen, I have informed
Mr. Butler that he will not be permitted
to address the court. Mrs. Johnson has
filed a motion in arrest of judgment, and
on this she has a right to be heard. But
she must get new counsel." Mrs. John
son was then remanded for sentence to
Says It Was Pore Cussednesv
Gen. Butler was asked if he could as
sign any reason for the action of Judge
"Yes." he said, "pure cussedness. Xo
other reason that I know of if it was not
"Have you and the judge been friendly
Xo, sir; I have no special reason to be
friendly with the judge. His position
does not require it. He is only an infe
rior judge of an inferior court in the in
ferior state of Rhode Island, brought up
here to held court while the regular judge
is unable to be present."
Never Had Such an Experience. '
"Have there been many cases in which
counsel has been prevented from address
ing the court?"
"I have never heard of any such, be
cause there were never many such judges.
1 have been a member of the bar of the
supreme court for forty-six years, and
have practiced in all the courts of the
United States, and I have always been
treated with respect and propriety, and I
have always treated the courts in the
same way. If I have not I have never been
Accuses the General of Lying.
Judge Carpenter says of the matter that
he feels that he was justified, since Gen.
Butler is a liar, inasmuch as he told an
untruth about the filing of a paner. and
that he shall not listen to the general at
The MMhigan Solons.
Lansing, Mich., April 13. The senate
yesterday passed a bill providing that
when a criminal case is appealed to the

THE PRESIDENT IN THE SOUTH.
He Itries a Warm and Enthusiastic
Knoxville, Tenn., April 13. President
Harrison has every reason to be gratified
with his reeeption in Virginia and Ten-
nesscee. At nearly every hamlet along
the line -of the route groups of people
waved handkerchief and hats as the train
passed by. At Roanoke, Va., the train
halted long enough to enable a crowd of
people assembled nt the station to shake
hands with the president, and similar dem
onstrations were observable as the train
passtd Pulaski and Abingdon. . At
Bristol the train halted ou the Virginia
side of the station. Large crowds had
pathered in and about the station, and
the windows of the houses in the vicinity
were filled with people.
Applause for Mr. Harrison.
The president, while the crowd cheered,
was escorted to the temporary platform
by the local committee, was introduced
by Judge Wood, of Bristol, and made a
brief speech congratulating the people on
the evidences of prosperity he had ob
served in Virginia. The speech was fre
quently cheered. He closed, wivi the
words: "May peace, prosperity, and social
order dwell in all your communities, and
the fear and love of God in every home."
Cheers. The appearance of Mrs. Harri
son in response to repeated calls brought
out great cheers from the crowd. At
Johnson City, Jonesboro, and Morristown
short stops were made, and at each place
the president made brief speeches to the
crowds that gathered at the stations.
A Royal Welcome at Knoxville.
Knoxvilie gave the president a royal
welcome. When the train rolled into the
station at 6 o'clock p. m. the local com
mitteemen met the party and escorted it
about the city. At 7 o'clock the party ar
rived at the hotel, where an immense
crowd had gathered to hear the president
make a promised address. When the en
thusiasm that greeted his appearance had
subsided the president said that it gave
him great pleasure to visit a city which
had given the country many eminent
men. The devotion to liberty of east Ten
nessee was part of the history of the
country, $ud he was glad to know that it
was as strong now as ever. He referred
to the material progress of the south, aud
said: "I b?g to say to you that whoever
supposes that there is anywhere in the
northern states any jsalousy of this great
material progress which the south is
making wholly misconceives the friendly
heart of the people of the north.
Words of Earnest Good Will.
"May every prosperity attend you. May
this ground, made memorable by one of
most brilliant assaults and by one the
most successful defenses in the history of
war, never again be stained by blood.
But may our people in one common and
all-pervading fealty to the great princi
ples of our government, go in to achieve
in material wealth and social development,
in intelligence, in piety, everything
that makes a nation great and a people
happy." (Great and prolonged cheering.
At night the president and Mrs. Harri
son and most of the members of the party
attended a large reception at the residence
of Cole J. San ford.
A Runaway Scare.
When the president and his party were
ready to return to their train they entered
carriages, and had just got started when
the horses drawing the carriage contain
ing Secretary Rusk and others took fright
and dashed into the president's carriage.
There was great excitement for the mo
ment, and Mrs. Harrison seemed to be in
imminent danger. They managed, how
ever, to get out of the carriage uninjured.
The frightened horses were finally con
trolled, but not until they had wrecked
Secretary Rusk's carriage.
