THE ARKANSAS STYLE
-ESTHETICISM AT A DISCOUNT IN
MR. GARLAND'S DEPARTMENT.
Roformrj nnd Ohanrros In tho Attorney
actional's Ofllco Slnco Mr. Brew
ster's Exit That Would Bring- Tears
to tho Eyes of 03car Wlldo.
There Is not as much stylo about the De
partment of Justlco as thcro used to bo, but
Just as much work Is dono thcro. Tho ap-
pe aranco of tho ofllco of tho Attornoy-Gon-cral
Is now In strong contrast to what it
onco was. Oscar Wlldo, should ho pay a
visit to tho Attorney-General now, would
not feel as much at homo ni ho would havo
felt in paying a visit to Mr. Garland's pro
deccesor. Ho would not now find much of tho
(rathctlo lurking around tho promises. His
feet would not fall upon costly rags ; his
eyes would not rest upon bric-a-brac ar
ranged profurcly in that carolos3 stylo In
which tho tcstheto delights. No dainty
statuettes nor figures lu brono of a largo
Blzo would greet his admiring gazo. Ho
would not find tho Attorney-Ucnoral seated
beforo a dc3k that was a thing of beauty
and a Joy forovor. Nor would tho mantol
bo found decorated with a rich, glaring and
costly lambrequin.
Tho Attorney-General would bo found to
bo a handsomer man than tho ono who wa3
thcro before, but ho would not havo such a
pretty shirt with rufltcs on its bosom and
around tho wrists. Tho lamps now thoro
would not cause Mr. Wlldo to throw himself
in a staincd-glassattitudo and remain thoro
in ccstacy tor about tbreo minutes and two
seconds by tho watch. Mr. Wlldo would
miss all these tilings and many moro. What
ho would find would bo an olllco furnlshod
plainly, but In oxcollont tasto. Thoro Is
no flummery there, but thoro is a room woll
appointed In ovcry respect.
And seated nt his desk, In plain ovcry
day attire, is Mr. Garland, no is always
busy and docs just as much work as if ho
had frills to his shirt and artistla antiques
in ovcry plgcon-bolo and on ovory projoo
tion. If Mr. Wlldo felt llko rostlng his ayo
on somothlng that would aid him In get
ting out of himself ho might hunt around
in tho corners of tho building. Ho might
find bric-a-brac In dark crannios and rich
upholstory in closots. If ho outorod a small
sldo room suddenly ho would bo startled
ut a flgnro that would suddenly como
within his rango of vision. It would bo a
statuo of Heury tho Fifth. This statuo was
tho lato Attornoy-Goneral's particular ptldo
nnd Elory it has rallies.
When Mr. Garland said "tako that thing
away," when ho first camo into his olllce,
tho statuo was hustled Into that room. Ou
tho wholo Mr. Wiido would havo a vory
unsatisfactory visit to tho Attornoy-Goneral's
quartors as thoy now aro. But ns
everybody clso would bo pleased with their
present appearance It Is probably just as
well. If by any chance Mr. Browstor should
mako a visit to tho olllco in which ho for
merly rovcllcd ho would be visited by a
scries of told shlvors running up and down
his back. Tho reporter is roliably lnformod
that ho might weep at tho vandal work
that has been going on.

Tbogamo to-day will decide wliothor tho
"Mela" or Nationals outer tho Amorican
Association,
Tho Bostons wcro dono up in beautiful
ttylo yesterday. For tho first two tunings
It looked as though tho homo nlno would
bobcaton.but thoy Bottled down to busi
ness after tho third and played a fluo gamo.
Gagus surprised avoryono by his pitching.
Instead of two, tho Nationals havo roally
four good pitchers.
How did Knowlcs' sccond-baso playing
suit you y estorday? If anyono In tho audi
enco has teen any better sccond-baso play
ing on tbo Nationals' grounds than Knowlos
did yesterday ho can can got a season
ticket at this ofllco by paying for It. It i3
lucky that Knowlcs was changod to second,
for at first baso ho was only fair, whllo
whero ho is ho can't bo beaten.
When it was certain that tho Nationals
would win yesterday, Bob Hewctt said In a
very modest way. "Well, wo do tho host wo
can, you know." Ills complacent smilo
told, howovcr, that tho "best" suited him
pretty thoroughly. .
Ycstorday was ladles' day, and tho fair
box was well represented in thogrand stand.
Less smoking was dono thoro by tho gontlo
men than at any gamo this soason. Tho
management vfonld do woll to mako ovory
day "ladles' day." Tho prcsenco of tho
ladles lends n brlghtor charm to tho occa
sion and exerts a wholcsomo restraint.
Morriesoy Is making a good ropulatlon as
a eafo battor. In fact, ovcry man on tbo
nlno Is hitting tho ball, aud Mooro promiios
to bo tho samo terror to pitchers that he was
last tcasou.
Tho Bostons Indulged in moro kicking
during tho second and third innings than
any othor club that has bcon hero this
season. Big BnQlngton did. not llko to bo
hit. They woro partially right, as it did
look from tbo grand stand that Gagus
stepped out of tho box ovory onco In a
whllo.
Tho Metropolitans arrived in tho city this
morning and aro iu oxcollent trim. Tho
manager, Mr. J. H. Grlflbrd, ptomiscd a re
porter of Tin: CniTit to show tho people a
good game. Tbo assignment of tho Metro
politan nlno for tbo gamo this aftcrnoou
was as follows: William Holbort, c; Bdward
Baglcy, p.; John Nolson, s. a,; Davo Orr, lb.;
John Troy, 2b,; Charles Kelp, lib.; S. Brady,
r. f.; Edward Kennedy, 1. f.; James Koso
man,c. f.
The gamo to-day with tho Metropolitans
will bo tho most exciting of any playod this
season ou account of tho great stako for
which thoy aro supposed to bo playing.
According to tho records of tho two clubs
for tho present season tho Nationals should
havo no trouble in winning, but basebUI,
llko whlto man, is "mighty onsartln."

Tho first regular meeting of tho now

they will Bend a crow to Frcdoricksburg on

John Kennedy has received nn offer to
put tho Fredericksburg four into shapo for
tho Virginia regatta. It is not settled
whether ho will accept or not.

particulars of tho Ilanlan-Hcach race. It
was for J 2,500 and the championship of tbo
world. Both men wcro In splendid condi

from tho start bo was half a leugth ahead

GOING FOE MAXWELL,
THE GOVERNMENT TAKES A HAND
IN THE ST. LOUIS TRAGEDY.
Groat Britain Askod to Aid In tho Cap
ture of Prollor's Murdoror Intorast
Manlfostod by Minlstor West Prep
aration of tho Extradition Papers.
Tho Government has begun to tako an
actlvo interest In tho St. Louis Sou thorn
Hotel tragedy. Throughout yostorday and
to-day tho Dopartmont of Stale was busily
engaged on such international preliminaries
as will bo necessary to sccuro tho capturo of
Walter Lennox Maxwell and bring him to
Justlco for tho cruol murdor of Charlol
Arthur Proller. Ycstorday Socrotary Biy
ard prepared a formal application upon tho
British Govornmont, which was presontod
to Minister West this aftornoon, for Eng
land to join In tho pursuit of Maxwell to
tho fullest oxtont of Its consular and police
system,
Extradition treaties exist betweon
Hawaii, Groat Britain and tho Unitod
Btatcs, which covor tho Sandwich Islands.
Unfortunately, howovor, thoro is no treaty
with Samoa, whero it Is feared Maxwoil
may disembark and oludo nrrcst, but it Is
believed lu tho Stato Dopartmont that tho
Government could mako tho arrest thcro
without any treaty. It was hopod In Mis
souri that Great Britain would tako sulll
ctcnt Intcrost In tho mattor to assumo nt
least n portion of tho heavy oxpenso Inci
dent to Maxwoll's pursuit and capturo, or
that tho Genoral Government of this coun
try could bo asked to sharo In that outlay,
but It appeals that all oxtradltlon trcatlos
rcqulro tho country making application for
oxtradltlon of fugitives from justlco to moot
all tbo attendant expense, and It Is tho
custom of tho Stato Department hero to
causo theso expenditures to bo met by tho
Statodoslrlug tho fugltlvo's return.
Thcrcforo Missouri will bo called upon
to carry tho load, which must bo exceed
ingly heavy when It Is understood that
ono cablegram from St. Louis to Now
Zealand amounted to $130. Tho Amorican
consuls nt Honolulu, Auckland and all
other points along tho lino of Maxwoll's
flight wcro ycstorday notified by tho De
partment of Stato to uso ovory nvallablo
means for tho capturo of Maxwell, nnd
wcro further instructed tn communlcato
promptly with tho authorities at all ac
cessible points.
Tho Secretary of Stato has suggestod tint
tbo cfilccra at St. Louis prepare immedi
ately a formal application for tho oxtradl
tlon of Maxwell, both fiom tbo British Gov
ernment and tho Hawaiian Islands, and
that theso papers bo sent hero for prompt
uso. At tho British Legation tho greatest
interest Is manifested In tho caso, and Min
ister West has assured Hon. John M.
Glover, Mombor of Congross from St. Louis,
that Great Britain would old In tho pursuit
and capturo. Mr. Glover last night tolo
graghed Chief L. Uarrigan that ho had per
sonally advanced tho roonoy necessary to
tho preliminary details horo and had suc
cessfully ovcicomo all diplomatic obstacles
and red tape.
Tho Congressman stated this morning
that ho bcllovod tho otlicors wcro on tho
right trail, and that Maxwell would bo cap
tured. Now that tho responsibility for tho
expenso has been definitely settled, tha
pcoplo of St. Louis will to-day socuro tho
necessary means by subscription.
THE DICiCSOH TRIAL.
Tlio Testimony of IVItnesteM Con
cvrnliii; Ilio Allceeil Ilrllte.
Tho DIckcon trial was resumed In tho
Criminal Court this morning, Judgo Mic
Arthur presiding. Tho attoudanco lu tho
court-room Was largo nnd of a moro thin
utual Intelligent charactor, Ex-Marshal
Henry, who will bo callod ns a witness, was
tinseut, Tbo first witness callod was
Matthew McNclIy, a shoo dealer in l'.ist
Washington. Ho was a member of tho first
Star-Routo jury. His examination was
conducted by Mr. Wells.
"Thojury left tho court-room," ho bsgan,
"about 11 o'clock In tbo afternoon. Tho
first thing that wo did when wo got to tho
jury-room was to tako a voto ou tha ques
tion whether all tho defendants woro guilty
of conspiracy. Tho noxt voto was as to the
overt nets of tho respective defendants."
In rcfcrctico to tbo attempt to bribo Mr.
Dickson with 125,000, ho said that ho first
heard of tho mattor on Four-and-a-half
street, opposlto Mr. Dickson's olllco a few
days beforo the termination of tbo trial.
"I mado very little of tho report, how
ever," continued tbo witness, "and re
marked to Mr. Dickson jestingly, 'Dickson,
that's $2,000 for each of tha jurymen and
$3,000 for yourself.' I didn't tako much
stock lu tho rumor. At anothor conversa
tion Mr. Dickson expressed somo doubt
about tho offer being for tho purpose of brib
ing blm, but to find bow ho stood on tho
cato. Tho noxt tlmo tho 8tibccl wa3 al
luded to was In tho jury-room."
Tho witness continued : "When I said
that I did not tako any stock lu tha mattor
I meant that I did not bollovo Browstor
Cameron was authorized to mako any such
offer. I thought Bowon's actlou was gotten
up to entrap Cameron."
G. W. Cox, anothor mombor of tho jury,
said thcro was only ono mombor who votod
against tho reading of tho paper when a
ballot was taken on tho question.
Henry A. Olcott. another Star-Routo
juryman, staled that Mr. Dickson's action
had no lufluonco on his verdict.
Hugh T. Murry, another mombor of tbo
Jury, was called, but tcstlfiod to nothing
now.
Mr. Wells, on being Interrupted In bli
remarks, exclaimed : "I hopo that I will
bo treated decently. It Isonough to bo at
tacked when I am away," ho continued, ro
fcrrlng to tho remarks of Mr. Smith yes
terday. "I am sorry you wcro not prcsont yester
day,'' retorted Mr. Smith.
"You acted so," rotortod Mr, Wulls.
Henry P. Godwin, a reporter of tho Slav,
was called by tbo Govornmont with refer
ence to an Interview ho had with Mr. Dick
son on tho ovonlng tbo jury was discharged.
Ho stated that ho got got tho Impression
from Mr. Dicksou that tlio nttompt of
Bowcu to bribo him lu tho interest of
tbo Government had its weight in work
ing tho acquittal of tho defendants. Ho
also stated at tho tlmo that ho w,i3 going
to lay tho facts of tho nttompt to briba hint
beforo tho District Attorney tho noxt day.
Brewster Cameron, who was formerly
general agent of tho Dopartmont of Jus
tlco, on being called, denied that ho ho-ird
Bowcn mako any such proposition to Mr.
Dickson, ns had bcou described, no also
denied that ho authorized Bowon to bribo
Mr. Dickson. Bowon reported to him
that Dicksou demanded $25,000 for a ver
dict. On cross-examination by Mr. Smith ho
staled that Bowcn reported to him that Mr.
Dickson badbeonapproached by thodefenso.
Tho reason why wltnosi did not go to soo
Mr. Dickson was because ho had no coutl
denco in him on general principles.
This caused a emilo In tho court-room,
Tbo Court eald ho had a mind to strlko
out this testimony from tho reeoul as It
bad no connection with tlio caso.
Tho witness sworo that ho did not em

this case.

Opening; or (ho Content tr tho
:i.nlo Admlrnl rowell'M Will.
A caso of moro than ordinary lmportanco
camo on for trial beforo tho Circuit Court
this afternoon. Tho suit in quostlon in
volves tho validity of tho will of tho lato
Admiral Levin M. Powell of tho .navy.
There aro two Important questions to bo de
termined by tho suit tho disposition of
about $180,000 in proporly, and also
whether tho endowmont of a froo naval
preparatory school by tho admiral will bo
allowed to stand.
Tho school in quoatlon is for tho prepara
tion of young men who aro not able toodu
cato themselves for tho Naval Acadomy
and tho liovcuuo Marino Service. Tills
school, which is tho only Institution of tha
kind, ii to bo conducted at tho Columbian
University in this city.
Tha plaintiff In tho caso Is Sarah C.
Colemcanll and tho defendants Charlo3 B.
DrakonndWm.il. Webb, uominatod oxo
cutors of tho Admiral.
Mr. K. 11. McKay, a famous wlll-tostcr
from Kentucky, who has contested twonty.
sovon wills with phenomenal success; Mr.
J. J. Johnson nnd Mr. W. S. Abort appoarod
for tho plaintiff.
Mr. McKay stated that tho ovldcnco
would show that tho tcttatordicd at 81 or
83 years of age. Ho said tho w III was mado
In October, 1.81.
"Tho proofs will fnrthor show," ho con
tinued, "that tho property descoudod from
tho mother's, or tho Thrustou sido of tho
houBo. Sldnoy Tbruston, tbo mother of
tho Admiral, was disinherited by tho will
ot her father. Admiral Powell hlmsolf at
tacked this will. Tho grandfather's will
was set asldo In Kentucky in this suit, and
tho cstato in controversy Is tho property
now lu dispute
"When tho Admiral died ho had no
children. After tho death of his wife tho
Admiral grow gloomy, nnd for somo tlmo
beforo ho died ho becamo absolutely blind,
was partially lubccllo. After tho death
of Mrs. Powell tlio frugal tablo of tho
Admiral was changod to ono abounding in
such things as canvas-back duck, partridge
nnd diamond-backed terrapin aud wlnoaud
brandy."
"Tho proof would show," counsel con
tinued, "that Mrs. Stewart had bodily pos
session of him."
Colonol Bnoch Tottca said that it was
certainly a mclancholuy circumstauco that
tbo charges should bo mado agalust tho
Admiral becauso thoy speak through tho
mouth of their ceunsol. Ho would show
that tho mind of tho Admiral was sound
and vigorous until a vory short tlmo be
foro ho died, Ho was a man uso 1 to com
mand his own houso aa bo did his ship.
If tbo opposing counsol should produce a
previous will, It will bo ecou that Mrs.
Stewart lost by tho second will. Tho Court
then began to hiar testimony. Tho will
was then proven.
II. K. Webb sworo that ho was ono of tho
witnesses. IIo sworo that Admiral I'owoll
was of sound mind when ho signed the
will, no raised hlmsolf In bed by ropes.
Tbo two other witnesses to tbo will testi
fied to tho samo effect. Mr. P. B. Snydor
testified to tho effect that Mr. Stewart had
rower of attorney to act for Admiral Powolt
in banking affairs.
