S trial on tho charco of consplrlmt to rob Mr.
Mahon Ono of tho visitors to tho courtroom
was United RtMes Senator-elect Josoph Blmon
of Oregon, who was a frlond of Mrs. Mooro'a
fathnr.
Mr Jlooro Is regular of feature clear of com
plexion and has large, rather dark bluo eyos set
under heavy eyebrows. 8ho Is. In fact, a pretty
woman of a certain type, and she dresses so as
to accentunto such advantages as alio possosoes,

Is precMy the sort of young woman of whom
one would csrect that sho would woar larco
diamond earrlncs to a criminal court If sho
had them 8,ho has tho earrings very larco
ones-ami sho woro them yesterday, be
sides a number of other dlamouds. Through
out the testimony, whloh was ouch that
Assistant District Attornoy Mclntyre warned
and llecorder Goff requested alt women
to leao tho room, eho sat either
Indifferent or openly amused, and this despite
tho fact that tho worst of tho testimony had to
do with her bchaUor. From beginning to end
he was much raoro comfortable, to all appear
ances, than tho complainant witness, from
whom, unwillingly, tho occurrences or his call
upoa the woman woro dragged.
Mahon was on tho witness stand nil day ex
cept for ono hour In tho morning, when Mr.
Jlolntyro outlined tho prosecution's case to tho
lurT. The lawyer described tho career of tho
noman. saying that her relations with Mahon,
which began nbout threo years ago, woro
broken off because of her friendship with a
negro nnmod Hills: that aftor lonvlng tho
negro she wont to lire with a riding master
calling himself CounfHatonyi, and that Moore,
thoush ho know of these matters, took hor
from the apartments of tho ".Count" and went
abroad with her. Mooro know of her former
relations with Mahon, ho said, and the pair clo
dded tosotn trap-tor the hotel keeper. How lie
fell Into the trnu Mr. Mclntyre told andalso of
the attack upon Dctectivo Sergeant Cuff when
he went to arrost tho pair. , . .
Then Mahon was called. Tho proprietor of
the New Amsterdam Hotel repealed himself as
amUldlo-agod Irishman, mild of manner, slow
of comprehension ot the questions put toh m.
and considerably embnrrassod. Ho said that
he IIM mot Mrs. Moore at a dinner party at his
hotel threo yeurs ago. LHe rose hero to Identify
her. and sho looked him straight in tho eyes
without a tremor.) Sho left a ring nt Ills hotel
by mlstako und camo back after It. on
hloh occasion thoy became better ac
quainted and tho acquaintance was kept up.
but lapsed when bIib went abroad. Throe
, months ago thoy met again at tho Waldorf
i and again became friends. , To her request
for a diamond honuhoo pin which ho was
wearing, ho responded by letting hertakotho
pin to wear, lending It. as ho understood the
I matter. Then-alter Bhe called at his hotel
seiernl times, nnd he mentioned tho mntterof
tho pin, but she alwayB succeedud In turning
the conversation toother mibjoet. On Nov. 4
hhe called him up by telephone and asked him
tomeetherat the Metropole. sajing that she
hud matters of importance to talk to him about,
and also that he could pet his pin there. Bo ho
went, Gittlnu there late, ho went into tho
1 ladles' parlor, nnd saw Mrs. Mooro sitting on a
wifanear the window talking with a man who
was standing outside.
At this point Jlr. Moore, who was sitting at
the rear of the room almost hidden from tho
fpectnton.. leaned forward and seemed to llbten
with more interest than she had before evinced,.
Mr. Mclntyre asked:
"Could you recognize thl" man ?
"Vs.slr: Itt was Moore, tho defendant.
"What did ho do nt that time?"
" As noon as I camo in n lett tho window, and
Mrs Moore, walking across to me, said that I
was late, and so I wns, for It was nearly 7 and
she hnd said for me to bo there at O."
" Did you remain long at the Motropolo ? "
"About half nn hour. Wo had dinner there.
Then sho said for mo to como up to her rooms
at the Grenoble. It wan not far. sho said, and
she would bo clad of my company there, as her
huibiind was In Washington and sho was
lonely. Wo might play n .little game or cards,
she snld, and when I asked hor again about tho
pin she snld I might get that, too."
"And j on went with her to her room?"
"ies sir." tho witness answered with some
reluctance.
" What did you do thero?"
" Well wo Played cards."
" How was Mrs. Mooro dressed ?" , - -
"Hhe went into the other room and un
dressed, and put on somo kind of a wrapper
thine It was a gown, or a sack, or something,
maybe. Then slio camo out and wo played
caniR."
"Did she sit on your lap?"
"Well es. sho did "
"And sho kissed you?"
"Well yos, sho did."
Here Recorder Goff began to show slgnB of
uneasiness, and at the next question he eug
eested that all tho womon in the court leave
the room. At the instance of tho court officers,
who Interpreted the Iteeorder's words as some
thing more than a suggestion, tho women, pro
testinel), departed. Mr. 'Million then told ot
the appenrnnco of Moore upon the nceno.
"Mrs Moore coughed and tho dofondantran
In and cot a big pistol out of the drawer. Ho
held it to my head and asked mo who I was. I
told him, hut hn didn't like it. nnd hit mo ovpr
the head and told mo to shut up. Then he told
me to cign n eonlesslon. I signed It because
I thought tliut li was going to shoot. Ho said
sverr minute that he would blow my head oft
nnd hohworougly. Ho put tho confession in
hla pocket nnd told me I'd have to sottlo $50.-
000 on tho woman for tho wrong I hnd done.
He nald he could iiover live with hor after that.
1 told him I didn't have that much. Hn
turned on Mrs. Moore and said: "What the hell
kind of a millionaire Ih this you brought me?
llecnn'tclNo up for ten thou?.' Evory minute
he wns swourinc ho'd kill me. sol signed a
note for$r.000. halt to be paid Sunday and tho
rest Monday He wanted It madn payable tho
next day. but I begged for tlmo and ho pavo it
to me, liy that tlmo I thought maybo he was
through with me. but he wasn't. All that I had

The witness was talking now without any
rollesof Ma foriueromlmrriissment,and ho was
about lu continuo the talo ot his misadventures
when u reee-w was taken. At tho afternoon
""km Mr Mclntyre soon got him into the
awing ot IiIk nnrratlvo again and ho told of his
leaving the hotel. Meantime thero had been u
wild nmh for seats, and tho room was so
iTowded that the Hecorder ordered tho doors
kicked In tho rush the court officers had a
hard time, and C'upt, t heelock of tho squad

For the crnss-oxamlnntlnn Lawyer Abraham
Low took the witness In hnml.
."Now. Mr, Mahon," said Mr. Levy, "during
nil tho tlmo that you know Mrs. Mooro were
your relations with her lionorabler" . , .
At this tho woman leaned oscrsothnt sho
could son Million's face, nnd when. ho ropllqd
" Ves" sho exololmod " Oh 1" under hor breath,
then shrugged her shoulders and laughed.
Did you toll her right awny that you woro a
married man?" . . .
" I did not. Thoro wns no reason why I'
should." , ,
"Did you suggost her going to live with a
Mrs, Johnson ' .
"Well, sho wanted to know whoro thoro was
a nleo boardlnc house, and I told hor nbout
Hero Mrs. Mooro made gestures of dissent.
" Did yon pay her board?" . ,
"Well, I lent her inonuv nnd sho forgot to sho
it back.' , ,
LnwyorLovy then went over again tho call at
the Grenoble, and the witness said that, barring
tho ono Incident of Mrs. Monro disrobing in
plain sight of whore ho sat. though In another
room, her actions woro "entirely ladyllko." Ho
admitted hnving ghen hor'' n diamond and
sapphire bracelet to wear. Ho was then asked
about taking hor to tho theatre nnd todrlvo
and to dinners, nnd why hn did nil thesn things.
" I wanted to see the sights and shn wag good
company," said he. a reply which nfTorded tho
roolplont of tho compliment n vast deal ot
amusoment,
Lawyer Lovr wont Into details as to Booing
tho sights. Ho jnuntod with them to road
houses, to tho I'nrk; ho sat down and rosn up
with them at tho dining tnblesot various ho
tels and restaurants: ho oven participated In
tho frequent aim friendly calls which tho
woman made upon Mr. Mahon nt tho Now Am'
sterdam Hotel, but ho could get nondmtsslon
from the witness-or conduct that was other
than rigidly clrouraspoct. Mr, Mahon wouldn't
oven admit having over called Mrs. Mooro
"denr" or "pet," although Lawyer Levy lin
gered with unctuous relish on these, forms of
address. "1 always called hor Mrs.Mooro after
sho was married, said tho witness, " and Miss
Btrahan before."
"At nny rate." said Mr. Lovy. you were
much attracted to hor."
"Well. I liked hor company."
"And you ran nfterher?"
"Not ns much as she ran after mo."
" You didn't repulse her ?"
" No. fllr; I wouldn't Insult a lady."
" Did you over wrlto to her ?"
"No. I dictated a letter once." i
"Why did you do that? Woro you afraid of
her?"
"No. I was never afraid ot her. Thero was
nothing to bo afraid of."
"Thon why did you dictate Instoad of writ-
" Well I don't wrlto very eood. I dictate all
my letters."
Lawyer Lovy conducted Mr. Mahon back to
Mrs. Moore's room at the Gronobio and kept
him thoro In great uneasiness until-court adjourned.

Mnjor-Gon. William It. Bhafter wns tho
guest of honor at a dinner given Inst night at
tho Montauk Club by I). S. Grant Post. G.
A. It. Llcut.-Oov. Timothy L, Woodruff nnd
Capt. Francis A. Cook of tho United Blntcs
cruiser Brooklyn wore also guests of the post.
Gen. Btownrt L. Woodford wns Iho tonstmas
tcr. Oon, Shnttnr was ory wnrmly Vo
celvod. nnd ns ho told tho story of tho
Bantlago campaign ho wui' Interrupted by
round upon round of applauso, choers nnd
shouts. Ho wan undoubtedly tho hero of tho
ovonlnc. It wns thought that Gon. Bhafter
might havo something to say In roforonco (o
tho report mado by Hear Admiral Bampson on
tho Joint operations of tho nrmy nnd nnvy before
Bantlago, In which tho Admiral mado public tho
correspondonco bclwoen hlmsolf and Gen.
Bhafter prior to the capitulation of Gen. Tornl.
But Gon. Bhaftor. as ho did a wook ago to-,
night at tho dinner given to him by tho Bons ot
the Revolution, confined himself entirety to
the operations ot ( he nrmy, nndwhllohopratsod
tho navy for Its work before Bantlago,
and said most emphatically that tho victory
would nothaio been won without tho nrmy'o
help, ho did not mention tho nnmo of tho com
manding ofllcor of tho navy nt Bantlago. Ho
said a word, at tho closo of his aftcr-dlnnor
snoech. which Is ovldently nil that ho Intonds to
Bay upon the matter.
"Some ory harsh criticisms havo been
passed upon tho Bnntlago campaign," said Gen.
Bhafter. " All I have to say Is that tho Ameri
can army came out on top. (Cheors.l I
hao carefully abstained from entering Into
nny controersy over the cnmpalgn. It
has scorned to me that ,in n time llko
tills wc should bo so happy aud so proud oor
tho neh!oomenta of tho American land and
naal forces that wo should ba patting each
other on tho back Instead ot calling each other
names."
In an Instant tho whole company was on Its
feet cheering like mad.
" Threo cheers for Gon. Bhaftorl" somobody
yelled out, and three cheers woro given a dozen
times over.
"God bless you, Gon. Bhaftorl" cried an old
veteran of til, his nyes wet with toars.
Gen. Bhaftor, in opening his speoch, said that
speechmnklng had never boon his business;
action had boon his business. Thirty-seven
years ago, when ho marched nwny from his
father's fur in lu Michigan, he little expected
that ho would ever command an army of tho
United Blates and lend it to n great vic
tory. But Hit had happened, and It wns
far more thnn he ever had n right to expect.
Ho was glad to know thnt his ofllclnl earcer re
ceived the approbation of his countrymen.
Gen. Hhafter then went on to relate tho story
of the fnll of Santiago. ,
' Wo had to undergo privations down at San
tiago. If you're going to hurt a mnn you'vo
got to gt up to him so that he can hurt you.
That'sn principle of war. Tho United States
were not prepared for war, but wo did the bORt
we could. Your honored Governor, or. rather,
tho man who will bo your uovernnr very
soon (Great cheering and cries of ' ltooso
volt"). camo to mo with tears In his oves nt
Tampa when I wns going to takeaway only
ono battalion of his regiment. Ho wanted to
go with me. nnd so did all of his men. So did
every American soldier at Tnmpa. IApplauso.1
Bo badly did they want to go that they were
willing to sloop on tho yards of tho
transports going down. (Laughter.) I selected
tho most efficient troops nnd took all the regu
lar troops I could. The regulars were selected
because thoy wore trained soldiers. In HI.
vou will remember, wo hnd no fighting until
'02. und we had a ear to weed out tho sick and
wenk. Tho volunteers that camo to me had
been but twoweeksln thesorflce. Col.Groone.
who was then nt tho head of tho Beventy-flrst,
camo to me and snld thero were flOO men In his
regiment who had never fired a gun. This
amared me. I was brought up in tho West,
whoro ovcrybody shoots. I was amared thnt
thero was a soldier with mo who had never
even fired u gun. But thero was never a better
army in America than the army I took with
me to Santiago.
"Wo might have taken Santiago In tho first
day of the lighting, but it wo had Con era would
havo sunk ills fleeut inthe harborand wo would
hao captured only tho 7.000 Spanish soldiers
then In the city. Hnd we takou Santiago the
first day 1 am auro the war would not have end
ed so suddenlvaslt did. But wo captured tho
city. (Cheers.l ,
''Whllo I don't say that tho flag of America
will always float In Santiago, for probably It
will not. 1 do Miy that the flag ot Spain will
novcr return." . ... .
Oen. Shaffer again referred to tho stories of
sufTnring among his troops. No war. he said,
wns over waged without suffering. He ap
pealed to the urand Army men all oDOUt him,
and they said that ho was right.
" I well remember." remarked Gen. Bhafter.
"that in Jnnunry. 180. whilo wo were pur
suing Hood's rapidly retreating nrmy wo were
onenmped on Gen. Joe Wheeler s farm, or near
there. For two days nil wo had to oat I" tarchod
corn," shouted somebodyl yes. iiarched corn.
There was no kicking about it." (Applauso and
cries of "That's right.")
Capt. Cook of tho Brooklyn told tho story of
tho sinking of C'flrvera's fleet outside of tho
harbor or Bantlago.
Lleut.-Go. Woodruff followed with a speech
for expansion , ...
Among the lotters of regret rend was tho fol

thnt an attempt nt f rcolng tho prisonors may bo
made. , ,
11. 31. B. Jllldurn has returned from a six
months' enilso among the Now Hebrides. Tho
British wnrshlp ant tho French warship Euro
were doing patrol duty sldo by side. At tho
liost of the French company two convict
eallod on another, drank his liquor, and
thon shot him dead. Tho natives attacked
tho whites, nnd numerous murdors took plnco.
Tho Mlldura and Euro landed at tho place,
rounded up tho rlnrilcadors nnd punished I
them. The Mlldura then called ntthn Island ot
Arhn, nnd learned thnt tho British Consul.
James Duncan, had been murdered by nntlve
villagers. A squad of bluejackets landed and
burned tho offending village. Tho Inhabitants
lied to tho hills. . , ,
Atthe Frromnngo Islands tho natives were
punished for lining up on tho bank and firing
a volloy into n British schoonor dospito tho fact
thnt tho British schooner had returned tho tiro
and killed sevornl natives.
At I'enteeoit Inland the arrival of the Jllldurn
saved n titimhnr of Mnlaneslun missionaries
from a verdict of death passed upon them for .
killing n nativo who had attomptud to stub ono t
of their number. I
At Ambyrm Island the natives and whites
woro in revolt. A tribe ot frlendllcs had joined ,
tho whites and a bloody war was lmmliiont,
when tho commander of tho Mlldura quieted
matters and arranged peace overtures by
threatening to blow up tho Island wlthdjna- I
mite.
At Arba Island a startling stato of affairs was '
discovered. A young nattvo girl, dnughtorof
the relmilng chief, had boon carried otr by tho t
Captain of n French cutter. The cutter was
still In sight and the Captain ot tho .Mlldura
crowded on full steam, overtook the, French- i
man and compellod hint to givo up tho
glr), who was carried back to hor parents by
tho French wnrshlp Eure. This pernicious
custom Is reported ns prevailing to an alarm
ing extent In Now Hehrides. the French be
ing tho offenders. Sometimes a shipload
ot girls Is taken, ono for each sailor be
ing carried away. It Is not customary
to purchaso those nativo girls. They are.

Allen street, and he communicated with Capt.
Reynolds, who sent four detectives to that ad
dress with a picture ot Larkln. Tho peonlo In
the house said that the original of tho picture
occupied the first floor front room, and tho

In a trunk they found a quantity of clothing
marked "John Phillips" and eleven pawn tick
ets. Ono of those tickets was for a watch
stolen from Col. Roberts and another was for
a pair of diamond earrlncs stolen from Mrs.
Creamer. An overcoat had the name "Howard
T. Bayne" written on the lining ot ono of tho

ellers wcro found. Tho skulls wore lutaot, ox
copt tor holes mado by an axo wloldod by the '
murderers nnd bullet holes in tho skull of
Edmlnston,
The finding ot these bodles'clears up one ot
tho mysterlas ot the Southwestern dosort that
havo so otten baffled alt attempts at unrnv
etltnc, and fastens upon John Hancock, who
was sentenced yestenlay at Santa Barbara to
ten years for robbery, one of tho most ntro- ;
clous crimes ovor commlttod In a region
whoro bloody deeds hnvo not boen uncommon.
In April. 1807, Goorgo Fngolko, n well
known veterinary surgeon ot Los Angeles,
and Peter Edmlnston, hts drlvor, started with
alight wagon overland for Salt Lake across
tho desort. They woro never hoard ot until
Nov. 3 of this year, wtien Jtrs. Winifred Gross
told a story of hew tho missing travellers lind
been murdered in Nevada by John Hancock,
whoso mistress sho had beon, nnd with whom
nt tho tlmo of tho murders ho wns travelling i
ovor tho desert from Ban Bornadlno to Sale
likc. Hancock nnd tho woman had fallen lu
with Lngelke nnd Ldmiiiston. and Hancock's
cupidity was aroused bv Ktigclko'n statements
that ho had had n profltaolo season as n trav- '
oiling votorlnarian, and was.on his way to en- I
joy the fruits of his work with his family.
Tho travellers camped on tho second nisht I
In ono nt tho most desolnto spots Imaginable.
Hancock told tho woman that ho believed
Lngelke had a large sum ot money, and ho
stated his Intention of killing l'ncelko and Ad
mliiston., Tho woman says that sho pleaded
with Hancock to spare the men. During the
night, however, sho was aroused by a noise.
Springing up. sho saw the bodies of Kngelko
and kdmlnstou on the ground, while Hancock
stood by with an nxe. with which he hnd t
crushed tho skull ot his victims. The men
were still moaning, so Hancock shot them with i
aplstol. then, soIzhiI with a bloodthirsty fury,
he again took up tho nxo nnd slashed nt ths
heads nnd bodies of Ills victims until their
groans ceased. Hancock got from Dr. Kncclke
ii silver watch and chain, a pocket kntte, n few
trinkets, nnd a bankbook shonlng that he had
several hundred dollars on deposit. From
Kdmlnxtou ho got $i;i.
Hancock nnd tho womnn burnod their own
wagon and went to Salt Lake, thence to Ore- t
cou. and finally drifted tuck to eoutliorn Cali
fornia. In Porris the woman u few weeks ago
married a man named Myers. Hancock
threatened tier life, and in terror sho made a
detailed confosslon, which lias boon substan
tiated by finding tne bodies of tho victims.
On Tuesday nicht Inst, In Los Angeles.
Hancock, whilo ou his way to tho penltontlarv.
also made n confession, saying that the woman
had Instigated the crime through foar of be
ing left on tho desert without water, ond had
actually struck Iktminston from behind with
tho nxe. According to Hancock, Lugclke
reached for tils rltle whon Han:ook shot htm
through the head. Hancock, howovor, admit
ted that his confession wns prompted by a de
sire to bo revenged on the woman and make
hor share his Dunlshment.

owing to tho reported resurrection of a 3Inort
girl by the-Maori KincTonhuzu, or his father
confessor, eallod Te Ehau. To Rerea. a con
fessed wizard, was accused of causing
tho death of manv natives by witchcraft and
l'nthor Te Ehau was sent for. Among those
whom To Rcrea, ns alleged, had killed by
witchcraft was one Mnrlta, a young girl. Arriv
ing at tho scene of tho trouble the. prlost called
ou To lleren, who acknowledged thnt he had
killed Maritu. but no one else. To Khan
told To ltnren lio would savohim this time,
but that it Im klllod moropi-oplo he would him
self dlo nnd be torn to pieces in hell. Tho
King t. confessor then ordered the coflliiof tho
dead girl. Manta, to bo brought into the street.
1 liousands of peoplo were presont when this
was done. A mass ot humanity watched the
proceedings.
Te Khau shouted inalnud volcototho mourn
ers to stop weeping, thnt Marlta would bo re
stored to them. Ho then placed his hands on
tho girl's forehead and performing somo in
cnnt.ition told her to rise, which she did, to tho
astonishment of all present,
Tho 31aons are trautic with joy. and are
showoring presents ou tho priest. The authori
ties have investigated tho matter, and severely

and would hnvo been but for tho arrival of tho
priest. Is vouched for by scores of white persons.
An oxplunatlon ot tho strange happeulng Is not

holy person can bring hack, tho spirit of a per
son that has boen chased nway by witchcraft.
