OF THE ASSAULT Tells How He Was Lured From His Home and Then Beaten By a Gana. CLAIMS HE RECOGNIZED ONE OF HIS ASSAILANTS MicCauley, It is Suspected, Was to Have Been Served Same Way-Midnight Messenger Tried to Find Him Same Night Johnson Was Beaten Up-Mys tery Shrouds the Assault on Johnson. 'The mystery of the midnight assault at the Moonlight mile, where four masked men clubbed dwn A. N. Johnsonl, the Arnaconda minei. rope foreman, deepened this morning. (,teore iBrown. whom John son alleges was pre.suit 1ii1nimisk.ed, was di. charie-ld by P'olici Magistrate lhhomn;a _oyle fior ha k of wvide ce' identifying him with the strange crime. Johnson in tell ing his story said his asstailants warned him to leave tihe. ciy on, pain of death. As broughit out by A .ista:nt I 'rosecut Ing Attorney IDan Yanc y. Johnslon's testi sony was picture'squte. lHe had heard whispers of troulle birewing. lie was called to the door of his room at midnight. An unknown messenger told him of a wreck at the Moonlight mine; then disap. peared. lie dressed himself andl hurried sway. It was a moonlight night. A fresh snow lay on the ground. Against it ob ¢ects stood out sharp anll distinct. Rocks Rained on Him. Johnson neared the minet. H )oniling a corner he was set Iupon by a group of miiten. A man grasped his waist. Another seized him fron bechind. A blow from a slung shot or billy felled him to the earth. Then rocks rained on and lhout him. lie looked upi as he lay andl says lie saws Brown standing nearby unmaskedl. The man saw the glance and shouted: "Beat him on the head, boys ;" then blows rained on him and he tried to shield his head with his arus. lie heard someone, shout. "Kill him; kill the - , A aman leaped astride him and started to go through his pockets, lie had only fi. This was taken. 'I hen the crowd closed on him again. A stranlger, whom he thinks lie knows, shouted to the men to stop their ugly work. \\'hen they ltegan to renew it this man closed in and at his own risk shileded the prostrate forem,:,i from more blows. Then the crowd lied. This strange man, the interceder, was ilentified at the last moment of the as sault by Johnson as Jerry Coughlin, a Iliner. He was subpoenlacid as a wittness. lie disappeared two days ago and the po lice have not been able to 'locate him. Another feature of the case was devel oped when Mrs. Clara McCauley, whose husband is a ropeman, told about a strange midnight messenger who tried to find Mc Cauley the same night that Johnson was beaten. McCauley was not in. His wife ,was alarmed because she had a large amount of money in the house at the time. The theory of the prosecution is that the same men who assaulted Johnson had planned to beat .McCauley. In his testimony Johnson said that his: assailants told him he must hire Brown, James Wilson and Jack Gray, whom he had laid off a short time since. lie said they told him, as they stlppld raining blows on him, that if lie did not he must leave the city or be killed.

Hunting men, says .M. \\'Woth, need solid support round the waist, such as is af forded by close fitting andi strongly honed corsets or belts, and they prefer the high kind for three reasons-because they give a more evenly distributed support to the body; because they do not shift out of place, and because the hunting coat sets over them without wrinkling and "work ing up" the back. "All the intricate mechanism of the body is braced," says a believer in male corsets, "and when bodily fatigue would naturally ensue, causing each part to as sume a position of less capacity to sus tain further strenuous exertion, the sup. port of the corset or belt is at hand to prevent this retreat of the bodily forces to a position of inferior strength and re sistance." W\orth ct Cie, are often called upon to supply corsets of a very feminine shape for officers who wih to assunie female characters in fashionable amateur the atricals. M. Worth relates many amusing incidents of burly guardsmen who wish to appear as delicate fairies with za-inch waists. Surgical corsets are worn by many men for physical weakness.
