Tbe Swimj'Emmons habeas corpus
proceedings came up in the circuit court
last evening, the stale being represented
by State's Attorney Sturgeon and John
Looney. and tbe defense by E. E. Pars
menter and William McEairy. A large
number of witnesses were present, and
after some preliminary skirmishing on
the part of the attoroeva, the case was
taken up and the first witness called was
Fred Emmons the prosecuting witness.
The attorneys for tbe defense objected to
his testifying, on tbe grounds that be was
not a competent witness to testify in a
case tending to criminate his wife, and
the court sustained the objections. The
next witness, Edward Tierman, was put
upon the stand. He testified to being
acquainted with Frederick Emmons and
to his haying boarded where witness was
employed. He remembered that Em
mons had left the city last August snd
went to Denver, and that while he was
away one night he saw the call boy look
ing for Conductor Swicg, and shortly
after, while out in front of tbe restaurant,
be heard a gate close which he thouebt
was the one at Emmons' home, and a few
moments later, saw Swing coming down
the street. He could not say positively
that it was the gate at Emmons' home,
but that it was in that vicinity. Not be
ing able to tell anything else relative to
the case he was told to stand aside.
Tbe next witness called was Night
Caller Daly, of the C, R. I. & P. round
bouse, wbo testiSed to having looked for
Conductor Swing on tbe night referred to
by the preceding witness, and after look
ing for him at his boarding place and
about the depot without success, he
finally found him in bis caboose about 11
Mrs.- Sarah Fiynn, of FUnn's lunch
counter, was then questioned concerning
her knowledge of the case.
"Do you know Mr. Swing, the defends
ant," inquired Mr. Loaney.
"Did you ever see Mrs. Enmons and
the defendant together!"
No sir." 4
"Let me refresh your memory . Did
you ever see Mrs Emmons board a street
car and later see tbe defendant get on the
"Did you ever tell any one that you had
seen them together." .
Here the court interrupted tbe exami
nation and told the prosecution that it
wasjuseless to go on with an examination
of that kind, whereupon State's Attor
ney Sturgeon confessed the writ and ths
court ordered the prisoner dismissed.
There was a large audience present in
hopes of bearing some sensatioual dis
closures, buttbey were doomed to disap

Wednesday evening, in the Redpath
Star Concert company,' a wonderful
combination of artists, which we are
sure will prove one of tbe most
popular attractions that will be placed
before the public during tbe season of
1891-92. It soould be noted that all tbe
members of this'cembination are solo pers
formers, whose ability has placed them in
tbe front rank of popular entertainers,
and enables them to offer a programme
of unusual variety, absolutely free from
monotony, abounding in humor, and es
pecially adapted to the miscellaneous aud
iences of the lecture plitforni, embracing
Miss Ella M. Chamberlain, the whistling
soloist, Mrs. Edith Christie, violinist,
Edward P. Elliott, delineator, John Fran

that desirable quarters could only be
secured by families without children.
Be finally resorted to strategy, and find

the agent. "Have you any children?"
inquired the agent. "I have, sir, there
are four out in the cemetery." "Oh,
that's too bad. Well, you may have the
house." A few days after that the diplo
mat moved in. The agent passed by,
and noticing several children in the
yard, stopped and took the man to task.

were in the cemetery?"
