PlTTsiiL'KG. Nov. 4. If testimony is of
any value the witnesses in the lams case
yesterday did not leave much of his com
plaint standing, so far as the charge of
cruelty is concerned. The first witness was
Charles Hatfield, hospital nurse for the
Tenth regiment. He saw Ianis strung up.
The heel of his right foot was on the ground.
Then lams would change and rest on the
balls of his feet. His arms did not appear
to be very straight and the cord was not
taut. lams asked for a chew of tobacco,
which he swallowed. Witnesssaid: ""lams,
you should not have taken that tobacco,"
and Tanis said: "I did it for a purpose." He
said this while he was still strung np.
rbout five minutes later lams was cut
down. He then said: T) n the doctors;
we will fool them." Hetheii took a drink of
beer from h canteen.

Witness said further: "Monday after he
was tied up I saw m:n in 1 tmn -steal and

and lie said: "Thev are .'ill rijrht."' Hat-I

Counsel for the defense offered to submit
the case without a;..'.iTi:e!it , but Judjje Por
ter said the prosecution was not bound to
agree to that. Attorney lams said that the
counsel for the common wealt h preferred to
address the jury. The court then allotted
each sMe.au hour and a half. Mr. lirad

GREAT TAMMANY MEETING.
One That Demonstrates the Efficiency of
Xew York.Xov. 4. Tammany last night
gave another demonstrat ion of its efficiency
as a political organization by holding one
of the greatest meeting ever held in this
city. Tammany hall was crowded to the
doors, while from Third avenue up Four
teenth street and across Union square a
dozen stands were erected and the thor
oughfare was packed with shouting Dem
ocrats. In order to insure a multitude the
committee of thirty ordered every other
Democratic meeting in the city, scheduled
for last night, abandoned, and those who
would have attended said meetings were
ordered to the big meeting. And they

Tn Tammany hall the speakers were J. J.
O'Donohue, Senator Kustis, Senator Car
lisle: Hon. W. H.J. Ham, of Georgia; Hon.
J. D. Warner, and A. A. Allen, of this city.
Outside the streets were ablaze with fire
works and full of enthusiastic partisans.
At ten stands speakers discoursed the is
sues, and generally it was a great night for
the Gotham Democracy. At the hall meet
ing a letter was read from Senator Gorman
which was largely devoted to the charges
that the Republicans were makiiiga mighty

was crowded to the doors lasr night, the

the Minneapolis nominations, under the
auspices of 1 he Dusiness Men's Republi
can club. The hall was decorated with
American flags nnd banners of the different
organizations stood around the hall, whii h

officer to act on his own judgment without

General Wiley (recalled,) would designate
the offense "mutinous insolence." The pun
ishment was not unreasonable. On cross-

Chicago turned out in force at the Audi
torium last night and gave a right royal
reception to Cleveland's associate on the
national ticket of that party. Half an
hour aft;-r the doors had been opened the
vast interior, seats and standing room

Political Field Notes.
David B. Hill spoke yesterday at Syra
cuse and Canaud.igua, X. Y., to large au
diences. Chauncey M. l?pew was the orator at a
great Republican meeting at Buffalo last
evening. He then returned to New York.

"There are cases." he said, "when mutin v is ,Mj!waukee "Wistration is 10.000 over t hat
imminent an officer might. In? justified in
catting a man down with his saber."
Colonel Norman M. Smith, when sworn,
said he would consider the offense charged
to lams under the conditions existing
mutiny, emphatically mutiny. The pun
ishment meted out he considered mild. He
believed the oflicer had the right to inflict
nummary punishment. Witness said when
the army is in the face of the enemy the
rules and regulations of the army and the
articles of war are thrown aside. Major J.
F. Denniston and others gave similar testi
mony, and the defense rested.
IAMS ON THE STAND AGAIN.
A General Ienial Put In The lawyer
The prosecution then commenced their
evidence in rebuttal. Ex-Private lams, the
prosecutor, was recalled. He denied that
he assisted in taking the ropes from his
thumbs when he was cut down. He also
denied that he had taken a canteen from
his coat after licing cut down, or that he
made any remark about being sorry he had
taken The tobacco. He did not swallow the
tobacco. It may be well to state that in
his original examination lams told the 1
story of his offense and punishment with
out material modification from the way it
was told in these dispatches at the time,
in brief that was that lams Uxu hearing
of the attempt to assassinate Prick called
out "Three Cheers for Prick's Assassin''
or similar words, and that when taken to
task he had refused to retract t Ue words or
express regret lor them.
Wanted lr. 4irim IiHCli.trgel.
. The testimony closed with tin? examina
tion of Private Jacolts, who was questioned
on minor points. Mr. .Buchanan then asked
the court to discharge the jury as to Dr.
Grimm. A discussion arose over the mat
ter. Judge Porter said: "Where an en
listed man or officer acts under the instruc
tions of supei ior officers he is protected,
unless he uses malice. The evidence docs
not indicate that there was any malice on
the part of Dr. Grimm. So far as he is
coitcarneu it appears to the court that it in
i question to he determined whether he
acted under the instructions of his superi
ors or not."
Also Colonel Hawkins.
Senator Bobbins, counsel for Colonel A.
L. Hawkins, thea requested the court to so
Instruct the jury in liehalf of iiis client,
claiming that Colonel Hawkins wus in no
manner subject to the charge of assault,
and battery beyond that he bud reported
the fact of the punishment of Private lams
to his (Hawkins) superior officer. Mr. Bu
chanan then subuiitedjthe points on behalf J
ol ur. tirirum, claiming nis exemption
from guilt on account of his having acted
only upon orders received from his superi
ors in rank.
General Instructions Asked.
Mr. Braden offered the general point,
covering the whole case and all of the de
fendants. Mr. Braden claimed that no evi
dence had been offered that the officers of
the national guard were actuated by mal
ice, ill will, or revenge, and that the pun
ishment waa inflicted upon Private W. L.
lams for no other purpose than that of
maintaining good order and military dis
cipline in their command, then on duty.
Counsel for both aides Then held a brief
consultation as to the arguments.
Among the speakers at the Democratic
meeting at the Auditorium, Chicago, last
night were William M. Springer, General
J. C. Black and Judge A It geld.
There is appreheusion in South Carolina
that all the Democratic tickets are illegal
because they are not of the right dimen
sions. THE LEADER-SMYTH CASE-
Testimony That Is Not So Favorable to the
LoNDOU, Nov. 4. In the leader-Smith
case yesterday Major General Smyth, hus
band of the defendant, was called and
swore that the brooch produced in court,
which Mrs. Leader sold to Dildin, was his
wife's. His daughter gave similar testi
mony. Miss Ethel Wheeler, who had been
at Cairo with Mrs. Ix-adcr. swore she never
saw Mrs. Leader wear that brooch. The
most damaging testimony was given
by Astley and Currie, respec
tively jeweler and casemakcr, who swore
that the case brought into court by Mrs.
lender was never made for the brooch she
sold to Dilxlin. Also Astley swore that he
could not find three private marks there
should lie on the brooch, as it had been
scratched up so as to obliterate them. He
said tl.e brooch was one he had made for
Dominion Oov rninrnt Alarmed.
Ottawa. Nov. 4. The government is
alarmed at the steps taken in England to
ward scheduling Cananian cattle when
imported into Great Britain. At a meet
ing of the privy council yesterday the mat
ter was ful;y discussed, and, while up to
the present time the government has been
nnable to trace the district frotu which the
infected cattle recently lauded in Kngland
cr.me from, they will continue the investi
gation, as the result is an important one to
the Canadian ci'.t le t racle.
