One of the most notetl characters o the Grant regime, anil at that ttme a loader iu the political and social world, tiled this morning. Close upon the news of tho dying condition of Justice Miller tlio city was startled by the an nouncement that Qoncral W. W. Bel knnp, cx-Sccretary of War, had bcon found dead in Ids ollkc rooms on New York avenue. The ofllce rooms of General Belknap are on the second lloor of the Evans Building, at 1-180 New York avenue, and consist of an ofllce room, occupied by himself and his law porlnor, Mr. J. W. Cameron, it private ofllco and a bed room adjoining, which General llolknap occupied during his wife's absence from the city. Mr, John W. Cameron, In relating the sad discovery, said: "General Belknap was found dead In bed this morning about 8-30 o'clock. I arrived at the ofllce somewhat before that time, but I was not surprised at not seeing the General In his private olllce, as he frequently does not get up until a lute hour In the morning. 1 thought no more about tho matter until the colored servant gltl asked me if the General had gone out. She said that hU bed room door was locked and she had knocked at it frequently but had re ceived no answer. This somewhat alarmed mc, and the Jtnltor of the building was Informed. "lie procured a siep-iatitteranu, look ing through the transom of tho hall door, discovered the General lying In bed apparently without life. The door was broken open and the General was discovered to be dead. Ills left arm was drawn up and his hand clenched, and his left leg buns out of the bed, as If he had suffered a sudden stroke. "The General was In perfect health when last seen alive on Saturday night. He had enjoyed a pleasant and so cial evening with a party of friends plating cards, as Is his custom on Sat urday evenings, and retired about 12 o'clock, seeming to be In the best of spirits. Ills death was probably due to apoplexy, occasioned, perhaps, by the excitement due to the critical condition of Justice Sillier. "Tho General was an Intimate friend of the dying Justice, and onlv on last Saturday spent considerable time at his residence. From all Indications I should judge that the death occur roil between 12 o'clock Saturday night and Immediately upon the discover? of the body Coroner I'ultersoa was notified and the body removed to Speare's under taking establishment on P street, where an autopsy was held. The autopsy showed that the General had suffered from fatty degeneration of the heart ami that the immediate cause of his death was Inflammation of the heart. After the coroner's autopsy the body was removed to his late residence, 1030 Vermont avenue. Mrs. Uelknap, who is at present in New York city, has been notified of her husband's sudden death, ami a telegram has also been sent to his son, Hugh II. lklknap, who is now in Chicago. The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed, but It is expected that the remains will be Interred at Keokuk, Iowa, where the General formerly livid.

The one to his parents merely contained his wishes as to his burial and the names of the pall bearers that lie wished selected. The nature of the suicide's letter to his wife may be Imagined from the closing sentence, which was: "May yout life lie a long one and may every day of your life be as unhappy as you have made mine." aTig'haul. BUROLARS RIFLE A JEWELRY STORE AND SECURE VALUABLE BOOTY. Tlio I.OM Will Itfnch $13,000 Tho Work or l'rorenilonn! Orackmiien, No Clue to Urn I'erpetratorii, For the second tlmo within a few months Frank Hoffa. the Seventh-street jeweler, bos suffered loss through theft. The last time, it will be remembered, a display of Jewelry had been left In the wlndoiv. Late at night the police of fleer on tho beat discovered that tho largo plate-class In front of the store had been broken with a stone and everything of value In tho window re moved. Yostcrday about 11 !W o'clock Sir. Hoffa went to his place of business to took about, as he customarily does on Sundays. He found everything In per ftct order In the front of the building, but upon going to the rear room was greatly surprised to see tint some valu able welches had been removed from the show rases and the shelves. "Well, I am thankful that they did not get Into my safe," renwked Mr. Hoffa, as he noticed that the front part of It looked as natural as ever. Upon going Into the small room In the rear Jewelry and settings were found strewn over the floor, also a number of burglars' tool. In the back of the safe a bole nearly two feet square was found. Little holes had been drilled a certain dis tance apart all around, and then by the use of a jimmy or chisel the Intervening metal had lieen cut. The composition mateilal between the Inner and outer plates was easily pecked out and the Inner lining completely forced out. The safe was more of a protection against tire than burglars, and was originally Intended to have been bricked up or used In a vault. Through this aperture the entire contents of the safe was removed. The burglars evidently took their time to the work, as they had deliber ately removed the diamonds from the settings ami left watches and other jewelry that they did not consider of value. Entrance was effected to the store by climbing out of the window of a photograph gallery in the adjoining building and then breaking the sky light over the little rear room. There was no window in the rear by which their operations could lie heard or seen. A small hole was bored through the partition, tbrouadi which one of the ac complices watched the store and the street in front. Sir. Hoffa immediately reported the robbery to Inspector Swlndels ami tlte uetective lorce wo at once put at work on the case. At first Mr. Hoffa esti mated his loss at ? 15,000 and after an investigation be feels satisfied today tbat it wilt not fall much short of this amount It is one of the most extensive and listing robberies that has been com mitted In Washington in many a day awl was evidently performed by pro fessional cracksmen, and it Is thought that they left the city before daylight.

The strong constitution of .IttsUce Sillier sustained him in his struggle against death Ions; after the doctors had given up hope. Yesterday morning his condition was found to be slowly chang ing, and the steady approach of death was evident. Dr. Lincoln left the dying Justice's bedside about 0 o'clock, bellevln that he bad made his last call. He did not think It possible, he said, that the Judge would survive until midnight, but he bad known similar cases In which the patient had lingered for several days. I)r. Cook stated that the Justice's face bad begun to show the marks of paraly sis more plainly, being drnwn from Its natural shape and discolored by blood. During the day, and until late In the evening, a large number of callers visited the house, tunny of them simply inquiring the condition of the Justice. Late In the afternoon Mrs. Harrison called and spent a short time at the house. Chief Justice Fuller and Marshal Wright of the Supreme Court remained during the earlv part of the evening at tho tiedsldc of 'the Justice. Sirs. Sillier, although almost com pletely prostrated, has borne up well under her bereavement. Justice Miller's family and a num ber of friends were anxious watchers at Ids bedside all through the night ex pecting that the end might come at anv moment. But little change In the sick man's condition was noticed during the night. His sturdy constitution seems to continue the unequal struggle against death lone beyond the time It was thought possible for him to survive the fiital strokes. This mnrnlnir bis breathing Is so rapid and dttticult that his death is momentarily expected. Un conscious and propped In bed. with the organs of respiration filling with phlegm, It Is felt that his vitality can't much longer resist the strain, and that the end must come soon. At 11 o'clock this morning the robust form of the Justice, lying utterly un conscious, was hovering between life and death. Drs. Lincoln and Cook ex press surprise at the tenacity with which the patient clings to life. Sirs. Touz.tIIn, a daughter of the Justlce.wIIl arrive In Washington from Omaha to morrow afternoon, as will also his niece, Miss Corklilll. Professor Wilson, who has charge of the sick room, at Id this morning that no arrangements for the funeral had yet Ixen considered. The whole matter, he said, would lie determined upon at a meeting of the Supreme Court, after which the family arrangements would be made.

Die Urge Kurnter of Priaonirs Thai Art DtiAiafd Orir Sumliy a nmm imm to the witricl Seme Valaibls kirm That ShiuU Ak4 Ob Tfie Xtwrd of Ike Trarel itg Temple of Justice. The uueellon of having magistrates' courts in Washington has quite fte rtuently been tllecttseetl, ami the manner In which police justice is at present being administered in the IMslrlel has revived the agitation of the question. The matter at the present time is brought up In the Interest of justice and humanity, and I bote who have very closely watched tlte "court on wheels" during the pest week have come to the conclusion that It was about time there was a change. There Is not a rliy In the 1'nlted States of the same imputation of the District where so many cases have to come under the jurisdiction of one court. In most of the large cities ibey have cither justices or magistrates' courts. In which prisoners arrested for trivial offenses can have a speedy trial. In n city like Washington, where there are a large numlter of arrests of this nature, in consequence of the exlstlnir laws which requires the selection of olllccrs from either the Army or Navy, the demand for magistrates' courts seems more Imperative. A review of tho arrests made durlnj the pail live or sl months show ilia the arrests made between the hour of 8 o'clock a. nt. on Saturday ami & o'circk a. m. on Sunday will average over one hundred. From s a. m. Sun day until the same hour on Slondjy the average Is shown to be about fifty. To Illustrate: On Sundav morning, Sep tember 7, the arrests made tnthe various pircliicls reached 113. which, added :o the flfly nne made between H a. in Sun dav and H a. in. Monday, made a total of 101. On Sunday, September It. the num ber on the blotters at the several ttatlont was 110, and on Monday 37, making a tolal of 141. Iu many Instances the prisoners are released on collateral whete they happen to have It them selves or are iorttinate In having frlsnds who will put up for them. Then again the majority of those arretted are re quired to remain locked up very often ftom t n'clerk Saturday morning until the time of opening the court on Mon day, and very frequently until the mid dle of the afierEoon or until the case, can be rtachtd. In the meantime these people, who are entitled to a speedy trial, hwe to be pro vided with food at the expense of the District, and from the record kept of money paid out in this direction the cost will aggrtgate a little over ftoo a month. The appointment or magistrates would dispense with this expense almost en tirely, as they could visit the stations on Satuidsy afternoons or evenings, hear the cases, lock up the guilty ones ami allow those who had been taken in by some ovtrotllclous ofiicer to go to their homes. "This change Is bound to come, and very soon, too," said a gentleman who is about as well posted as any one on the way in which things nave been run ning lately. "Why, this peripatetic system Is making it all the worse. I'ris oners are being hauled about from sta tion to station like a lot of cattle, and there are lots of cases that have to be continued over from day to day." "Well, what can you suggest as to magistrates-" was asked. "I have looked into the nutter very carefully, and feel tsturt d thnt four jusilcis or magistrates could dispose of the business very readily, and la this wanner: Justice No, ), I'rcdncts Kos. 3 and ?

Tnte would relieve the Criminal Cwrt of many of the burdens imposed upon it ami at the tame time expedite justice. The Police Court could at the seine time have eselualve jurisdiction over tke trial of liquor cases, sanitary end buikiteg violations ami ether cases of "The CntTii teems to come to the important question of interest is the Dfcukt. tndibi f wMfctes MMoftbe m two rBEcwcm n'JPfiE KILLS AS.U BIS WAMBCUISy COVST HVB 4 K1S WAV.
