JCeither Assistant District Attorney Op'oorne rfM . Frederick P.. House, counsel for the de reaftuitß, was ready to go on with the case. end ar. adjournment until next Friday v. as ap t.'ied for/ Friday- was not convenient to the Magistrate, whereupon Mr. Osborne suggested that Monday should be chosen. Magistrate Brar.n was unwilling to allow the case to go ever so long and suggested Thursday, but Mr. Osborne pleaded that ii would be Impossible *or him to give his attention to the case Ft. soon because of pressure of other work. He urged that if sufficient time were granted to tim to study the evidence it would expedite the hearing. "Yes." interposed Mr. House, "that means that after the firet hour his mind will be so clear that ho will ask Your Honor to dismiss the case." Eventually It was decided to remand the de fendants until 10 o'clock next Monday morn- Ing. Mr. House asked for information as to the specific c res which would be brought against his clients, and was informed by Mr. Osborne that they would be proceeded against upen the $2-"i.(»ft" check, and That the charge cf forging the $05,000 check would be used in cnrrobnrailen. Bail was continued in the sum c f (10,000 each. Mr. Osborne said later in the day that it was his Intention t<"> charge Jones with forging the $25,000 check and Patrick with uttering it. He said he would place no obstacles In the way if either defendant being liberated upon bail, and that if the bonds could be obtained it was not the purpose of either the District Attorney or the police to rearrest the two men en other charges. Although both Patrick and Jones presented a little of the somewhat uncouth appearance vhich confinement in a cell produces, they were light spirited and seemingly unconcerned, and chatted and smiled with their counsel and friends. When Jones was asked if he had ever taken i<?ssons in hypnotism he laughed and said: ■] never took a lesson in my life. There i£ not the slightest truth in the report that I was ever a pupil at th» hypnosis school in Fifth ave. If I had been, why does not the man who runs the school corr.e down to the jail and S'l^ntify me. I understand that he was asked by some reporters to come here to-day to identify me, at lam told that he ha? no* been here." Patrick would not make a statement of any kind. He said he had been told by Mr. House to ray nothing to reporters, and he intended to follow that advice. Mr. House made no effort to obtain bail for his clients. "I may as well tell you frankly." he paid, "that there has been some trouble in ob taining hail. I could have obtained bail for Patrick two hours after bis arrest, but ■with re tard to Jones it was a little different proposi tion. Ten thousand dollars is a large sum. You cannot get it by going out into Park Row and whistling for !t. I want to get bail for both at the same time, and I want to be able to offer men of such financial standing that their bonds will not be questioned for a mun-tnt. . expected to find bail for Jones to-day, but even if I had I would not offer it until I have been informed as to the exact nature of the- complaint and have t definite understanding with the District At torney that the two men will not be rearrested cr. other charges."

If he had asked my advice he would certainly not have given a copy of it to Captain Baker. As a matter of fact, these criminal proceedings are a side issue to the civil proceedings. The people from Texas ex- Itx to get away with Sir. Kick's fortune, but Mr. Rice intended that most of it should go tg Sf\\-York.. and I wish to say that New- Tfllit Is going to get that money. When I say thai the < riminal proceedings are simply a side issue to the civil proceedings 1 mean that it is **!1 known that theee people who are trying io get away with this money think that by put ting Patrick, away in .State prison they will tot have to go to the great expense of the civil proceedings. This, therefore, is their first move in a very *ell planned ga-m*-. As to the last will and testament of Mr. Rice, I have seen it stated in lie newsxiauers that the subscribing witnesses «ay thfty suw jjr. Riot sign the will. May it Hot be possibly true tha; the testimony of two living eye witnesses may be of more value than the speculation of experts, should the experts -f.<'iude in their charges that of forgery of the Weond will?

LIEBIG COMPANY'S EXTRACT OP BEEP for WWOVED AMD ECONOMIC COOKERY private counsel. Assistant District Attorney T'ngrer was also present, and the conference lasted nearly an hour. In that time Patrick's attention was called to a number of very sus picious circumstances, particularly as to the em balming of the body with argenious fluid when It was about to be cremated. He gave no expla nation of this, but admitted that all. or nearly all. of Mr. Rice's property had been assigned to him, but the object of Fuch assignment he did net disclose. Thr- question? asked seemed to cause him some agitation. «s hif> hand Rhook perceptibly, which was noticed by both Mr. Uncer and myself. Assistant District Attorney Osborne has entire charge of the investigation on behalf of the peo ple. I have Keen a number of the checks of Mr. Rice drawn to the order of Patrick, and two of th?m appear to me to be clumsy forgeries. The whole Subject will be thoroughly investigated, not only as to the cause of the d?ath of Mr. Rice but also as to this remarkable series of proceedings. To me it seems that there has been a conspiracy to obtain possession of the bulk of Mr Rice's property. More handwriting experts reached this city yesterday and went to work on the checks and cssijrnmems. Captain Baker has retained al most every well known expert in the country. They wen conducting th^ir examinations throughout the flay at the ofn>»s of Hornblower, Byrne, Miller A- Potter. Captain Baker's at torneys They had no report to submit yester day, hut they have made enough statement! i<*pardlng their investigations to lead to the he llef that they will unanimously report that the r-irrnMurcs to the checks and assignments are forgeries. It is believed also that they will de clare that the same hand which wrote the bodies of the doruments also wrote the signa tures. It is admitted that Jones filled in the checK««. It was learned yesterday that upon the $25,000 check presented to the Bwen«on« for certification is stamped "Accepted, Septem ber -4, 1000, payable National Park Bank." Two lines are drawn over the stamp. It would seem from this that the Swensons at first be lieved the check to Re authentic, and only re fused to certify the check after they heard of Mr. Rice's death. TO GET A FOMTVKE OF $200,000 IUEST TO atRB. Bt"TTEKrTEt.D PROM F"RMI:r LOVER. St. Paul. Minn . Oct. S.— Through the publication of a dispatch from Milwaukee in to-day's "Pioneer Press" Mrs. H. E. Butterfield. of 'his city, has dis covered that she is $200,000 wealthier than she had imagined. Mrs. Butterfield was formerly Miss Belle Griffin, of Minneapolis, and In 1890, while upon in excursion to the Pacific Coast, she met Tnomas P. Harkin. of Boston. Their acquaintance was later carried on by means of correspondence, and they became engaged. Shortly after the en jrapemfni Miss Griffin visited New-England with her mother, and the wedding was fixed for a few months thereafter, and she returned home to prepare for the event. Shortly after this Harkln was attacked by severe hemorrhages of the lungs and died. The night before his death he sent lor a lawyer and had him execute for his affianced wife a quit claim deod to a mining property in Hon duras. Last winter, as the result of syndicate op erations, th«» property greatly increased in value, and the attorney, who is now practising in De troit, learned of this fact, and on communicating v iih the syndicate, whs offered $200,000 for a quit claim deed from Miss Griffin. All trace of that young woman had. however, been lost. Mrs. But tertield. on reading the dispatch printed to-day, at once took steps to establish her identity, and will shortly receive the $286,060. Her husband is a clerk in a railroad freight office. PO/ATfi MADE AGAINST YQUTSEY JURY. Georgetown, Ky.. Oct. The jury was completed to-day to try Henry E. Youtsey on the charge of being a principal in the shooting of Governor Gcebel. The talesmen were sworn, and Common wealth's Attorney Bradley proceeded with the opening statement The defence moved to di.» charge the jury on the ground that the jurymen are all Democrats. Judge Cantrill overruled the motion, declaring that the defendant is indicted for murder and not for any political offence. Anothvr motion was then made by the defence, ;i.skinjr that the Commonwealth elect whether it will try Youtsey for actually firing the shot or foi aiding and abetting the man who din fire the shot. To this the attorneys for the State replied they simply wished to try y/oui under 'he In dictment and l-tl -t the jury say whether he tired the fchot. A demurrer was then filed by the defence on the ground that the indictment named no one as firms: the shot, and that it did not sufficiently de scribe the offence charged against Youtsey. The Court took the demurrer under advisement. At the afternoon session Judge Cantrill overruled the demurrer to the indictment, to which the de fendant excepted. The Commonwealth's Attorney said he preferred the defence would not make Its. statement till after the prosecution concluded its direct testimony, and it was so ordered. The list of the Commonwealth's witnesses, being called, showed " present an-: 54 absent; witnesses for de ft-nee. 7 present and 53 absent. James A. Scot*, an attorney of Frankfort, was the first witness. 7.. T. Thomas-on, a Frankfort politician, al?o testified. SEW VTELLESLEY OBSERVATORY. ■Wellesley. Mass.. Oct.

There was all sorts of racing at Morris Park yesterday afternoon. Some v.-as fairly good and some was pretty bad. The general opinion among professionals and amateurs alike is ,that If the stewards do not put a atop to the foul riding some afternoon there will be a bad accident. The risks that all the jockeys are taking these days are ex tremely dangerous. Henry and Miles were called into the stand to explain some of the mix ups they were in. but no action was taken further than a reprimand to all the boys to stop their reckless riding. Henry on Advocator and Miles on Annoy had narrow escapes. The first race was run in a bright and glowing sunshine. The last was run in a cold, driving rain storm. Intrusive was the favorite in the last race when the horses splashed to the post, but all the wise money had been staked on Senator afcCar rf n's colt, Potente. There was a long delay at the post, during which time the jockeys were drenched. "When the barrier went up there was only one horse in the race— Potente. He galloped all the way and won without an effort. Charentua was second and Intrusive third. Beau Ormonde, from "W. 08. klacdonough's sta ble, cap'ured the first race In the easiest possible manner. Dr. Barlow, Trlllo and Yelp were with drawn. Hardly was a 6 to 5 first choice, and ran an Indifferent race, finishing a poor last in a field of three. Nearly everybody was glad to see Mr. Mac donough's colt win. because fortune has not favored him very bountifully since he began racing. The Olympian Stakes for maiden two-year-olds brought nine colts and fillies to the post. Basuto, J. E. Seagram's Canadian colt, was the favorite, and with Bullman on his back came in first. It Is possible that Advocator would have won had he not been interfered with on the turn for home. This colt ran a fair race, and he will probably be a contender In the White Plains Handicap on the last day of the meeting, if he retains his present form. August Belmont's Orienta ran second to Basuto and Advocator was third. Colchester, an other Canadian from Mr Seagram's stable, was thought to have an excellent chance to win the Ballyhoo Bey Handicap, with only 100 pounds on his back. Second place was nest he could do. Gold Heels, the favorite, won the race in rather clever style. Mitchell had the mount on A. H. & D. H. Morris's colt Choice, and he tried to make a run away race of it. rushing to the front and leading by two lengths until well into the stretch. He found the distance, six and one-half furlongs, too much for him and finished third, out to the last ounce. Compensation at last won a race. He was a top heavy favorite for the fourth race, and won a victory that was fiercely contested. To Burns be longs the honor of winning, for Daly's Belgrave was the better of the two, and with jockeys re versed Compensation probably would have lost. As usual, Belgrade was at a long price, 20 to 1 to win. Some of the plungers thought they saw an opportunity with 'Walt Not, and he was well played, but third was his lot, after much bumping and interference. A wild tip was circulated In the local poolrooms on a beast named Sea Robber in this race, and so eager were some people to bet large amounts on him to win that he was actually backed off the boards. His race was a study of rateneas. Lamley rode, and he was last every foot of the journey and losing ground at every jump. Daly found consolation over the defeat of Bel grave by winning the fifth race with Annoy, beat ing the well played Brisk and The Amazon. An noy was next to last In his field half way from home, but Miles persevered with him and got him going like a steam engine at the seven-eighths pole. He rushed through the field in the most reckless manner and won easily from Olea, who had been leading tor most of the distance. The Amazon was third, a head behind Oleu. The patrol judge complained against Miles for foul riding, and the stewards questioned the boy at some length before they awarded Annoy the race. McJoynt has signed a contract to ride for W. K. Vanderblli in Paris next year and Henry will ride for the Keene Stable in 1900. B. C Hlldreth has bought Golden Age from .1. E. Madden on private terms.
