day before the date she originally fixed.
The person to whom the alleged stolen
brooch was sold was a jeweler named Dib

, Strong Toint for Mrs. Leader.
Mr. Dibdiu told at lenjfth about the visits
cf Mrs. Leader and Mrs. Smyth. When
the brooch was handed to Dibdin he said
that it appeared to be the one Mrs. Leader
had sold, but he often saw many others like

had seen the police notice to pawnbrokers

notice had a picture of the brooch printed

Money Is All on One Side.
Jamkstowh, N. T., Nov. 8. In his speech
yesterday afternoon before an audience of
8,300 people, in the Jamestown wigwam,
Chauncey M. Depew took up the "boodle"
issue raised by Grover Cleveland Tuesday
night. Depew commenced by saying that
Cleveland's speech had been very carefully
prepared, and in respect to preciseness and
clearness of utterance it was the best speech
Cleveland ha1 delivered this campaign. It
was meant to be the final appeal to the vot
ers of this country to support the Demo
cratic ticket. But it said not a word ex
cept incidentally about any of the issues
of the campaign.
As to the "Boodle" Inline.
In place of these issues the ex-president

Pittsburg, Nov. 3. The fifth day of the
lams case opened with Colonel Hawkins
again on the witness stand, and his cross
examination by Attorney lams was con
tinued. The questions, answers, and
arguments sproved an interesting analy
sis of military law. During the exami
nation of witness a number of rulings
were made by .Tudge Porter touching the
authority of military commanders to in
flict summary punishment upon members
of their command for breaches of discipline
which were considered favorable to the de
fendants. In redirect examination Colonel
Hawkins said the punishment inflicted on
Private lams was in accordance with mili
SaitI lie Would Shoot Streator.
Roliert V. LKrliert, of the Piitsburg
Dispatch, was the next witness. Herbert
recited at length and in detail the story of
the Homestead trouble as gleaned from
personal oiSI rvat ion. Herbert testified:
"The d:;y following tl.e punishment of

men. He sjwikeof the Irerlmut he had

the latter what 1. mis hail said. In s,rak

even with Streator; afterward he said he
would kill Colonel Streator.
The Doctor Arcuril the Cne.
The feal lire of the afternoon session was
the testimony of Dr. Ullum. of Waynes
burg, assistant surgeon of the Tent h regi
ment. Dr. L'liitm said the first he knew f
the propositi punishment of lams was when
Dr. Neff ordered him to go along to assist
in administering the punishment. "I re
fused to go at first," said Dr. Ullum. "W e
argued the matter for some time. ;t.-:i; then
Colonel Hawkins came along. The i!uit-l
told r.te I did not understand lay :u;y; that
I was not to assist in ad minis; :::-i:ig the
punishment, but to see that no hanu came
to lams. Dr. Netf and I came to the con
clusion that lams should not suffer. The
orders were that he should le allowed to
hang as long as he could stand it."

Dr. Ullum also stated that when lams
was cut down he told him to feign sickness
so that the regiment would have the im
pression that he had been severely pun
ished. E. E. Robins counsel for defendant

On the following Monday lams told Dr.
Ullum that he intended to shoot Colonel
Streator, and the witness reported the mat
ter to Colonel Streator and told him that
he should leave ilomestead for his own
safety, but the colonel laughed at the mat
ter. Did lams Swallow Tobacco?
Captain Cuthbertson, officer of the day
when lams was punished, said he gave
lams the chew of tobacco which he is al
leged to have swallowed for the purpose of
making him sick. Surgeon Major Neff
had charge of the punishment. He said
his orders from Colonel Streator were to cut
lams down before he was injured perma
nently. He would have cut him down 1k
fore he did if lams had indicated that he
was suffering much. It is expected that
the case will go to the jury today or tomor

the brooch soon after her return to Cairo.
The brooch lent to her was, witness said,
Identical with the brooch produced in
court. She had also seen the brooch in
Mrs. Leader's room. Miss Amy Scott said
that she had seen the brooch in Mrs. Lead
er's possession when she returned to Cairo
and Mrs. Leader told her it had been p re
ten ted to her by Captain Trench.
Piling I'p the Evidence.
Miss Maud Thompson, a sister of the
plaintiff, identified the brooch in court as
one which Mrs. Leader had shown her when
he returned to Egypt. Louisa Brun, a
nervant, and Emily Page, a servant, testi
ied that they bad seen the brooch in Mrs
Leader's possession months lefore Mrs.
Smyth had lost the brooch. Solomon Ja
cobs, a jeweler, testified that he had made
the brooch from a design which was not
registered, and had made twelve similar
brooches. Henry Stokes, a jeweler, corrob
orated the statement of Mrs. Leader in re-
Dejiew then said: "The Democrats haven't
raised a cent; they are not going to spend a
cent, according to Mr. Cleveland. They
did not spend any money last year when
Mr. Flower ran for governor. There are
half a dojien men in both parties who know
precisely how much each party has raised
to carry on this campaign. There were
probably six men sitting back of Mr.
Cleveland last night who knew to within
$1,0(10 how much money the Republicans
and Dtmocrats each have in their treasury.
They know that the Democrats this year
have at least 30 per cent, more money than

"The Democrats have $17,000,000 of

the case for the plaintiff.
Testimony of Mrs. Smyth.
Mrs. Smyth then took the stand. She
testified that she bought the brooch in ques
tion in 1887 and wore it on every possible
occasion. Mrs. Header otten stayed at the
borne of the witness and saw the brooch
frequently. The witness never saw Mrs.
Leader wear any simila; brooch. "When
I saw the brooch in Dibdin's shop," said
Mrs. Smyth, "I was so upset that I cannot
remember now what I said then. I may
have accused Mrs Leader of the theft. I
io so now, anyhow."

sfbe Fact Demonstrated by British Ball
London, Nov. 3. There was a terrible
railway accident near Thirsk, Yorkshire,
yesterday, by which ten persons were
killed and about thirty m,qre or. less in-
employ bands, etc., and I want to say that
in whatever channels the Republicans
spend money for campaign work the Dem
ocrats are ready to spend money in the
same channels. In view of these facta it
looks like a great confession of weakness
for Mr. Cleveland to turn his back on all
the issues for which he has been fighting
and bring up the charge of corruption at
this late hour. The Republicans will not
be hurt by it- They will win this cam
paign, not through corruption, but through
