Washington, June 13. The American
mob spirit seems everywhere even undei
the shadow of the Capitol of the country
that holds itself up as the example and
model of the civilization of the ninteenth
century and of whose citizens "Joe" Cham
berlainnot having read the papers while
here said that what most im
pressed him was their "reverence"
for law and order. For the fact
is that there was a mob in nearly
all that the name implj in the coroner's
court durinjj the exarnSSition of witnesses
in the Ford's theatre buildiriLrs case.

ISister T'oelln; Ajfriinst Ainsworth.
Just at this s.taie in Thompson's testi
mony there was a strange s ; ne illustrat
ing a bitter feclint; air.iiiist (" ilonel Ains
worth. A majority of the spectators pres
ent at the inquest were clerks who were
employed in the old thef re buildimt. Mr.
Warner, one of the j-iror), asked the wit
ness what was the feeling of clerks in the
theatre building towards, their superior of
ficer. Colonel Ainsworth.
"That of abject ftair" atis-.verd Thomp
A slight buzz anil shiftintc of chairs fol
lowed; then a-sliisht clappitut of hands. A
lieutenant of police present held up his
hand to stop the attempt at applause, but
he was too late. A burst of hnnd clappina
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 Seem Neelful.
Then in reply to questions from juror
Warner as to whether the clerks were
afraid that if they mentioned the danger
ous condition of the buildim; they would
be discharged if there was that feeling of
fear. Thompson answered fervently, "It was,
it was," and that it even extended to
Jacob Freeh, Colonel Ainsworth's "right
hower," as Thompson called him. And just
then came a note from Colonel Iamont,
secretary of war, which would seem to
have made it quite practicable for protests
to have been made without a man losing
bis place. I,amont'8 note simply said that
he was informed that the lmpret ion ex
isted that clerks would testify their
peril. Of coarse this was not so, and he
gave his word that no employe of the ae
' partment need fear to tell the truth.
Testimony on the Other Side.
Carter, another clerk, had heard tliat the
building was unsafe. D. H. P. Brown was
fearful of repl3"ing to a question as fothe
danger of protesting against working m
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. No clerk who had
protested had been discharged. He also
contradicted other witnesses by saying that
everybody in the building hail 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 been
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 right;he 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. K. Koss Ferry, as the representative
of Colonel Ainsworth, arose to make some
remarks on the subject nnd his first word
was a signal for the most exciting incident
of the day. Hutler Fitch, an old white
haired clerk of the record and jension di
vision, started the trouble. "Sit down,"
he shouted, "yon are an outsider and have
no right here. I protest against an 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
lieing held. AU this time Mr. Perry stood
immovable, and when the uproar had
quieted somewhat he appealed to the crowd
to let him speak.
t-I appeal to you an American citizens for
fair play," he cried. '-You didn't give us
fair play," yelled an excited individual.
Old Hutler hitch kept crying; "No intim
idation." Morgan Spencer, of Bridgeport,
Ala., another government clerk, called out
at Colonel Ainsworth: "You should le ar-

Hore the tempest broke in its full fury.
"Hang him!" was shouted from a dozen
throats. Kvery man in the spectators'
seats rose at the cry, "Hang him! hang
lim!" The shouts grew louder.
Colonel Ainsworth sat cool and collect
ed. Somebody said after the' uproar was
over that his hand moved tolas inside

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 be such. A ma1 rush had just
bejiun 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 front
Facing His Accusers.
James A. Long believing the building to
be insecure Lad been assured by several
clerks that there was no danger. He had,
however, secured leave of absence and in
sured his life. Albert N. Crosby, a-third
floor clerk, was not allowed to finish his
testimony. While he was being examined
s man walked slowly to a place behind
: Colonel Ainsworth's chair and said some
thing in such a loud voice that it brought

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.
"Tins outbreak of feeling must be 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

Thecrowd 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 steps
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
nunciations of Colonel Ainsworth, and of
those who justified his courses were in
dulged in. A committee consisting of
Smith Thompson, W. N. Say re. B. Fitch,
Percy Monroe and M. M. Jarvis, was ap
iwintcl to wait upon the president and
protest against the proposed secret session
and to urge the suspension of Colonel
Ainsworth, pending the investigation.

would resumed under better police arrange

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 State9 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 a seige, 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 Montiel went to Santa Fe to demand
an explanation from the American offi
cers there, but this was n ot 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 be with
