Tho most exciting toplo In tho city last even
ing nnd to-day was tho mysterious and sudden
escapo of Captain 11. W. Howrate, lato of tho
United Slntoa Army, and nt presont under In.
dlctment for embezzlement ot Government
Captain Howgato has been Incarcerated for
Bcvcrnl months, having been arrested in tho
West early last fall. Ho gave hall, nnd at ono
ttmo was Bupposod to havo lumpod It, as ho
disappeared for somo weoks. Ho roturned
voluntarily, however, nnd was commlttod to
Jail to await trial.
As Captain Howgato, dosplto tho charges
against him, was generally popular, great
leniency was shown him by tho offleers o tho
court and prison, nnd on Now Yenr's dny last
ho was allowed
Tim L'liimunl Vrlvlleco
of visiting his family nnd friends In this city..
Considerable comment was mado by tho pres
nt the time, nnd tho officials novor rcpoatsd
tho favor until yostordoy when, as tho matter
cv entuatcd, they paid dearly for tholr courtesy.
Captain Howgalo requested, through ono ot
his counsel, Mr. A. B. V llllams, permission to
visit his daughter, who Is horo on her Easter
v acatlon rrom Vnssnr Cullcgo, and strongth
cned his request by stating that ho had somo
documents secreted nt his rcsldenco which
wero ot essential valuo to tho pending motion
or his counsel to dismiss tho attachment or
dered by Iho Court ot his houso nnd property.
Judgo W)llo granted tho order permitting1 tlio

Not be Aliiciit for More tlmti Two
Mr. Williams took tho order ot Judgo Wyllo
to tho Jail, and tho wardon Immediately sur.
rendered his prisoner. Deputy Marshal L. P.
Williams took chargo ot Howgato and accom
panied him to tho corner ot Fourth and G
Btreots northwest, having previously raado an
arrangement with Ballltr Tall to meet htm
there. Mr. Tall then entered tho cartlago aud
took charge ot him, Mr. Williams gottlng out.
Mr. Tall then took him to his residence, on
Thirteenth Btrect noar G, whero Ballltr Doing,
who was In waiting, also hy previous arrange
ment, then became his custodian. Howgato
entered his houso accompanied hy Bailiff
Doing, Ho procccdod to tho dining
room, whero ho was greoted by his
wlfo nnd daughter. Ho left tho bailiff
In tho dining-room nnd went up stalrs'to tako
a drink and chango his clothos. After "remain

Howgato tomarked that ho had forgotten somo

Is all light, bowever, as no cluo to his where
abouts can bo discovorod. Tho surmises ns to
his location are various nnd conflicting. Many
niocf tho opinion that ho Is still In tho city
(.ecrctcd among frlonds, others that ho has
lied to New York. All aro certain of ono thing
that he has escapod,

Tho plan for his successful escapo has been
plotted for somo tlmo past, nnd thero Is no

skipping has cvidontly been concocted during
that period.

anxious torn trial, and could provo his Inno

Marshal Henry and Bailiff Doing wero oaily
visitors nt tho Howgato mansion this morn
ing. They carefully surveyed tho pi onuses,
and gnvo as their opinion that tho Captain
scaled several foncos in tho roar ot his house,
and thonpiobably mado his way to tho river
and took passago on .somo boat. Marshal
Henry Bald ho thought that tho fugitlvo Cap.
tain left tho clly by water, as ho was per
fectly familiar with the Potomac, having oneo
owned n yacht, on which ho would mako fro
quont excursions down tho river. Tho Mar
shal belloves, however, that tho Captain will

Bailiff Doing, who was bo completely dono

who asked :
"How much tho stait did Howgato gets"
"Only ten or twelve minutes. As soon ns 1
found that he had gono I did tho best thing I
could telephoned to pollco headquarters nud
notified them of his escapo. Then I mado a
complete Investigation ot tho promises, but

fold In this connection that a policeman In
South. Washington stated that ho noticed n
tug-boat betwoen 8 nnd ! o'clock last night
piling betweeu tho Soventh and Elovcnth

Thodelcctlvesand pollco wero very silent lu
legard to Howgato's oscapo to-day, and ex
ptesscd themselves ns unnblo to glvo nny
opinion, or foim any conjocture, ns to his
whereabouts. Major Brock Btatod that ho
ralherlcaned toward tho opinion that Howgato
hadnotlcttlhoclty; and tnisseomed tobotho
general Impression.
All Sorts or Humors.
Thero wero all sorts ot rumors In conuoc
Hon with the escapo ot Captain Hon gato on
tho streets to-lay. Early this morning a re
port was In circulation that tho Captain had
taken passago on his old steam-yacht, which
Is now owned by Mr. NoiTls Peters. This was
emphatically denied, liowover, byono or Mr.
Pclers' cnjplo es, w ho said that tho yacht was
now nt Wilmington, Del., hauled up lu tho

How tho Doors Wero I.oelioil,

and tho Captain repaired to tho bath-room up

down to tho pallor, whoro tho ballltr snt, and
said, " No I w HI go In tho noxt room and look
after my papers." It Is supposed that ho had

suggestion with reference to tho bailiff pockot

to mako his escape.
All tlioltcleclltesnt Worl..
Tho whole detcctlvo corps wore working on
tho Howgato enso to-day, but up to a lato hour
thlsarteinoon, ns far r.s could bo learned at
Pollco Headquarters, no cluo or nuy kind had
been found.
Where Iho Sympathy Rests.
Tho sympathy of tho public scorns to bo
largoly In favorof Captain Howgato. Nearly
ov ery ono expressed tho opinion that tho Cap
tain had not been treated altogether light, ill
not being given a trial beforo this, when tho
Uovcinmeut counsel havo assorted tlmo and
ngaln that they have sufficient evidence ot a
documentary chaiacter which could bo pro
duced ut any tlmo and which would convict
thoCnptaln ot the crlmo charged against him.
It this boso, then tho puhllo would like to
know why tho enso has not been brought to
trial long beforo this. It is understood that
tho trial ot Howgato could not tako placo uutll

In lils testimony yesterday, Mr. Shlphord
sworo that William Henry Hurlburl, editor of
tho New York lloiW, nnd brother of the lato
Mlulstcr Hurlburt, hail showed him a dispatch
with tho words "Oo it Ptevo" on tho margin.
Mr. Hurlburt, In this morning's lipid, denies
tills most emphatically. Tho following Is his
editorial lu full:
Mr. Belmont yesterday turned tho eourso ot
tho Kblphcrd examination In a direction
which, It followed up ns ho cvidontly moans to
follow It up, will bring before tho country cor
talu aspects ot this South American business
much moro Interesting and Important titan
tho ways and works or tho voluble Impostor
who hns been taking up so much valuablo
spneo of lato in tho public press. It Is or very
little conecquenco what becomes or Shlphcrd
nnd tho mysterious "Peruvian Company,"
nbout tho comiiosltlon ot which that olhcr
wlso fluent cicaturo preserves such n
comlcnl rotlccncc. Possibly, llko Iho needy
knlle-grlnder, Shiphcrd mny rctuso to glvo
up bis list ot stockholders for tlio ovcollont
lensou that ho never has had any list otstock
holders to glvo up. Never wnsn man moro
amusingly addicted to darkening counsel by
words without knowledge. Ho gavo Mr. Bol
mont n delicious dominion ot his ldoa ot tiuth
yesterday when ho described his nllogod
"knowiedgo" ot n certain tact as a "matter
which w hen brought to tho last analysis Is ono
ot opinion lathor than ot absolute know lodgo :"
and ho Illustrated this dcllnltlonasdollclouslr
when ho spoko ot an nlloged "marginal note"
nsono ot Secretary Blaluo's dlspatchos ns
having been cited to him by tho editor ot
tho New York Woilii. As a mntter ot ract
tho editor of tho Now York WorH nover
saw orspoko with Shlphcrd In his llfosavo on
tho occasion ot nstnglo visit which Shlphcrd
lequcsted permission through two or tlireo
lnlermedlailes to pay blm, nor did thoodltor
of tho lloriever lnrorni Slilpherd that lio had
in ills possession auy dispatch whatovor sout
or Intended to bo sent by ox-Secretary Dlalno
to tho United States Minister In Peru. In this
case, as in tho caso In which Shiphord tho
other day put into tho mouth ot his coun
sel, Mr. Scott Lord, certain languago which
was Instantly repudiated by that gontlo
man In n letter published lu this Journal,
Shlpherd's evidence being "brought to
tho last analysis," turns out to to of
tho sort which ho calls a matter "ot opinion
rather than ot nbsoluto knowledge'" but
which peoplo moro economical In tho uso ot
tho lexicon aro opt to dcscrlbo by an old Kug
llsh mouosyllablo or thrco lcttors. Through
tho rog and mist of Shlphcrd, however, thanks
to Mr. Belmont, tho country may now bogln
to mako out tho truo proportions and tho ronl
purport of Mr. Blaluo's policy touching our
South American relations. It Is or Importanoo
that theso Bhould bo lully appreciated.
To-Dn.yn Investigation.
Tlio wltucsE, Shiphord, was asked a great
many questions in regard to his provlous tes
timony, tho result simply being that ho cor
roborated what ho had already said. Ho re
iterated what ho had said about tho dispatch
In Wm. Honry Hurlburfs possession. Ho said
In explanation ot his remark about "having
something to sav it Blaltin said ko nml ro
that what ho intended to say was ot a personal
nature, and would in no way affect tho caso.
Ho regaided Blalno's letter or December 0 us a
lIeco or INiro Hypocrisy.
Ho said that nothing had taken placo between
him nnd President Arthur that boro directly
or indirectly on this Investigation. He de
nied tho right ot tho commltteo to luicstlgnto
tho nffalis ot tho Peruvian Company. Ho de
clined to iroduco tho letter of Introduction
from Giant to Arthur oxcepton tho authority
of ono of them.
On tho 17th of November Mr. Blaine sout a

do with tho Cochet claim. On tho loth ot
November, tho next dayTitter ha (Slilpherd)
had sten tho President, Mr. Blalno sent n
very different Ulspatch,
Ho did not know that Ex-Senntor Baton was
on attorney ottho Landrail claim. Ho ac
cepted a retainer trom tho Peruvian Com
pany. ;
Ho did not want any ptlrato quarrel with
Mr. Blalno to obtain undue publicity. What
he understood, what tiU Impressions were, Aoiw
tie was Impressed, &.c., A.c, took n long time.
His Impression ot tho "go It Btovo" dispatch
was that Mr. Hurlburt was to "go It."
Ho declined to go Into Ills Impression as to
Grant's Indorsement.
With rererenco to arms or munitions bolno:
cut to Peiuhfs only knowledge was n letter

Ho nover had a letter from Secretary lllnlno lu
his own handwriting. In fact ho had no let

Whatever wltuess had dono for iho Lan
drnu claim was nt their request. Ho de
clined to nnmo who iho attorneys for tho Lau
diau claim were.
His clients taken collectively own tho Cochet
Inteicst. Ho declined to stato how much was
paid for tho Cochet claim. 1 ho commltteo has
every scrap of paper with lorcronco to tho"
Cochet claim that was evor submitted to tho
Department. Ho was not awarothatho had
over pushed tlio Landrail claim as a mou
ejedlutcrest. "Did it ever occur to you that you wero liu
properly using a United states Mlnlstor?"
"I expected that I was communicating ill
rcctly with President Calderon, I was look

He had taken no Important Btop slnco May

Moro than a llttlo complaint Is belug mado
Just now about tlio notoriously disgraceful
extent to which cx-Merabors ot Congress aro
carrying tho lobbying business upon tho lloor
ot tho llouso and of tho Souato. It Is no un
common thing to seo halt a-dozen or theso ox
pub. tunes, on tho floor ot the Senato or tho
Houso nt n lime, buttonholing Senators and
Members, and taking advantage ot tholr
privileges, in order to mako tho domand
for their scrvlcos tho moro sought after
and valuable. ACItiTic reporter saw ono ex
Member go In ou tho iloor yesterday five dif
ferent timeB lnstdo ot nn hour, and each iimo
bo took a Member out and Introduced him to
tho agent of a powerful railroad combination
in this country. Iho rules ot thoRonatonnd
House El ould bo so altered as to compel theso
cx-Mcmbers and ex-Senators to display a llttlo
decency, nud, It they have no respect ror
themselves, they should be taught to respect
tho dlguily and sanctity or tho Congress of tho
United btatcs.
Put them out, and keep them out uutll they
learn to act decently.
