Haid he. Servants on the stairway, sta
tioned there by Co1..t:c1 Ainsworth, had
warred the clerks to K' easily up thest:sirs.
Concerninu the one stairway in the ihea
tre building Mr. Thompson said it was not
suflicient for the rapid exit of one-hall of
the clerks with safety. In K'.ijik down the
stairway he h:;d heard clerks to call on:
"Take care; the stairs arc unsi'e."
I5ittcr Feeliim Ajtuinxt Ainxworth.
Just at this.stiie in Thompson's testi
; mony there r.-as a stra in- s ; ne illitstrat
in a bitter feeling against Colonel Ains
worth. A majority of the spectators pres
ent at the inquest were clerks who were
employed in the old theatre building. Mr.
Warner, one of the jurors, asked th wit
ness what was the feeling of clerks in the
theatre buildiu'4 towards their superior of
ficer. Colonel Ainsworth.
"Thnt of abject far" ans-.verd Thomp
A slight buzz and shift inn of chairs fol
lowed; then a-slinht clapping of hands. A
lieutenant of joHce present held up his
hand to stop the attempt at applause, but
he was too late. A burst of hand clapping
followed that lasted a quarter of a minute.
It came from the portion of the room
where most of the clerks were sitting.
A Little Jail Seems Needful.
Then in reply to questions from juror
Warner as to whether the clerks were
afraid that if they mentioned the danper
ous condition of the buildini; they would
be discharged if there was that feel in ir of
fear, Thompson answered fervent ly, "It was,
it was." and that it even extended to
Jacob Freeh, Colonel Ainsworth's "rijrht
bower," as Thompson called him. And just
then came a note from Colonel Ijimont,
secretary of war, which would seem- to
have made it quit practicable for protests
to have been made without a man losing
bis place. Lamont's note simply said that
he was informed that tne lmpres. ion ex-
is ted that clerks would testi fy i-t their
peril. Of coarse this was not so, and he
gave his word that no employe of the de
'. partment need fear to tell the truth.
Testimony on the Other Side.
Carter, another clerk, had heard that the
building was unsafe. I). H. P. Brown was
fearful of replying to a question as o the
danger of protesting against Wbrking in
the building, not on account of Colonel
Ainsworth, who had done him two favors,
but of Mr. Freeh. He finally replied that
clerks feared discharge if they protested.
Then J. II. Smith, another clerk, had heard
of the danger of the building. The gas
escaped and clerks protested, and Colonel
Ainsworth, instead of demanding their of
ficial heads in a charger, had gone to the
building to investigate. Xo clerk who had
protested had been discharged. He also
contradictfed other witnesses by saying that
everybody in the building had confidence
in Colonel Ainsworth. Any feeling that
might have lieen developed was not direct
ed to Colonel Ainsworth, but to other of
ficials particularly Jacob Freech. The
talk against Colonel Ainsworth had leen
confined to a few "old soreheads."
hushed. He stepped forward, and stand
ing behind and directly over Colonel Ains
worth cried in a voice trembling with pas
sion: "You murdered my brother, and I'd
like to know what right you have to sit
here and intimidate witnesses."
The coolness of Colonel Ainsworth at
this moment was noticeable. He sat calm
ly in his chair and did not even turn his
head to see who it was denounced him.
It was Charles G. Banes, brother of one
of the clerks who was killed. The reply
of the clerks present to this outbreak was
prompt: "That's rightdie did it," from some,
and "Put him out," from others. And
then came the attempt to deprive Colonel
Ainsworth of being present to face
his accusers. It was stated by
Juror Warnerthat the best means
of silencing these outbreaks was
not to bounce the men who thus inter
rupted a court of justice but to require
the absence of the person accused because,
in the face of Colonel Lamont's note, he
intimated the witnesses.
Colonel Ainsworth absolutely declined
to withdraw in spite of the applause that
followed Warner's remarks, in which he
"mentioned no names," and the coroner
told the jury that Colonel Ainsworth had
a right there and he (the coroner) had no
right to exclude him. Juror Hanvey said
he had been told by half a dozen clerks
that they had been afraid to testify and
would have refused to do so but for the
letter of the secretary of war.
Mr. R. Ross Perry, as the representative
of Colonel Ainsworth, arose to make some
remarks on the subject and his first wonl
was a signal for the most exciting incident
of the day. Butler Fitch, an old white
haired clerk of the record and iension di
vision, started the trouble. "Sit down,"
he shouted, "you are an outsider and have
no right here. I protest against au out
sider speaking here."
"Sit down; sit down," echoed his fellow
clerks in voices that were not restrained.
Fitch cried out something about "murder.''
and his words were echoed from every part
of the hall. Record and pension division
clerks were on, their feet trying to make
speeches, as though a public meeting was
being held. All this time Mr. IVrry stood
immovable, and when the uproar had
quieted somewhat he apiH-aled to t he crowd
to let him speak.
"I appeal to you an American citizens for
fair play." lie cried. "You didn't give us
fair play,'" yelled an excited individual.
Old Butler Fitch kept crying: "Nomtnu
idation.'" Morgan Spencer, of Bridgeport.
Ala., another government clerk, called out
at Colonel Ainsworth: "You should be ar
rested for murder and not released on
Hare the tempest broke in its full fury.
"Hang him!" was shouted from a dozen
throats. Every man in the spectators'
seats rose at the cry, "Hang him! bang
lim!" The shouts grew louder.
Colonel Ainswort h sat cool and collect
ed. Somebody said after the"' uproar was
over that his hand moved to his inside
coat pocket and remained there. His feat
ures seemed absolutely immovable. There
was the faintest suggestion of a Smile on
Mr. Perry remained standing, but made
no attempt to quell the mob, for it had
grown to lie such. A mad rush had just
begun in the direction of Colonel Ains
worth, when Mr. Warner arose, and
standing on his chair begged for order.
WARNER APPEALS FOR FAIR PLAY.
OUTBREAK OF THE MOB SPIRIT.
Attempt to Drive Col. Ainsworth from
Facing His Accusers.
James A. Long believing the building to
be insecure bad been assured by several
clerks that there was no danger. He had,
however, secured leave of absence and in
sured his life. Albert X. Crosby, a-third
floor clerk, was not allowed to finish his
. testimony. While he was being examined
a man walked slowly to a place behind
; Colonel Ainsworth's chair and said some
' thing in such a loud voice that it brought
a warning "sh h" from some of those
present. , But . the. man was not to . be
The Court Adjourns and the Clerks Hold
an Indignation Meeting.
The sight of him standing stopped the
rush. Dr. Shaeffer directed Mr. Warner to
take his seat, but the latter refused, and
raising his voice managed to make himself
heard. His first words brought quiet.
"This outbreak of feeling must le sup
pressed," he said. "Not by the strong
hand of t he law, but by the hand of fra
ternity. Applause. I appeal to you to
have fair play an American citizens and
not to stain the fair name of the glorious
capital of the republic. I appeal to you in
tne name of the Master who reigns
The crowd fell into Mr. Warner's way of
thinking and cried, "Yes." He saw his
advantage, and made an appeal to let the
question of allowing Colonel Ainsworth
to remain to be settled by cool heads.
When he took his seat, however, there
were more threatening mutterings, and at
8:20 p. m. Dr. Shaeffer quickly adjourned
the inquest until 10 o'clock this morning.

hall talking excitedly over the incident.
Colonel Ainsworth sat in his chair for a
minute, and then walked quietly out of
the building through a side door connected
with Willard's hotel. When the hall was
emptied the excited language of the clerks
continued on the sidewalk, and finally
Butler Fitch mounted the entrance steis
of the building and proposed an indigna
tion meeting immediately. The proposi
tion was adopted, and the clerks took pos
session of the hall.
Smith Thompson who made many
bitter remarks against Colonel Ainsworth
and Jacob Freeh in his testimony, was
chairman of the meeting and bitter de

those who justified his course were in

Smith Thompson. W. X. Sayre, B. Fitch,

OUR BLUE JACKETS IN NICARAGUA.
The People of that Country Not at All
New York, June 13. A special to The
World from Managua, Nicaragua, says:
The landing of marines and sailors from
the American warship Atlanta, who es
tablished a camp near the village of Santa
Fe, close to the canal, has caused the great
est excitement, even exceeding that which
prevailed during the last revolution or up
on the overthrow of Sacasa. The agita
tion has extended to all ' classes, who fear
that the United States is taking possession
of the country and the passive attitude of
the government is severely commented up
on, even called treacherous.
The explanation of the American offi
cials that they merely landed forces in
order to protect the property and works
was considered a subterfuge for such war
like preparations as the landing of troops
without warning, placing artillery and
Hotchkiss guns in position, preparing the
place to withstand aseige,bringing to shore
a large quantity of supply and camp
equipage, seems to indicate a long stay.
Crowds from this city went to Santa Fe
to see "Los Americanitos," as the invaders
are called, and it is feared thai unless
some precautions are taken or a satis
factory explanation is given serious
trouble may arise.
A large deputation of citizens has been
chosen to demand an explanation from the
government. It was rumored that Gen
eral Mont iel went to Santa Fe to demand
an explanation from the American offi
cers there, but this was not generally cred
ited, as it is known that the American
minister was closeted with the cabinet for
more than an hour. There is a report here
that the rest of the Central American gov
ernments will protest against this action
of the United States. A late rumor is that
the United States troops will le with
