Arrest of a Leading New Jersey Politician. SENSATION CAUSED AT TPEmTON Frank A. Magowan Taken to Jail. WILL BE SUED HEAVILY TRENTON. N. J., August 22.-Frank A. Magowan, until recently rated as a mill ionaire and frequently mentioned in con nection with the republican gubernatorial nomination this year, was arrested today on a capias. charged with the seduction of Helen Ilith Barres and the alienation of her affections from her husband, John Al bert Barnes. The latter was superintendent of the Eastern Rubber Company, one of the Ma gowan concerns which a fortnight since passed into the hands of a receiver, and it Is he who prefers the charges against Ma gowan. Magowan wa : taken at cnce to the Mer cer county jail and detained under $2.,0 bail. The hecvy ball was fixed on account of the belief that Magowan was arranglg to leave for Mexico, and because Barnes is desirous of instituting suit to recover $11M), 1:1m1 damages against him. The complaint covers thirty typewritten pages and is a succinct description of Magowan's methods and doings in ruining the Barnes home. It is sworn to by Barnes, and, basing his action upon its contents, Supreme Court Commissioner John S. Aitkin granted a capias, stating in his writ that, having read and considered the complaint, it is sufficiently proved that the said Frank Magowan has been guilty of criminal relations with the said Helen Edith Barnes. Magowan's arrest on such charges has created a great sensation here. Reports were in circulation a few days ago that Barnes was seeking him with a revolver, and a tragic conclusion of the affair had been anticipated. Barnes swears further that Magowan frequently sent him tfarnes) out of the city on hi'siness trips for the purpose of better consorting with her. Several times he has found Magowan at his house arol has chased him therefrom, nid onme Magowan escaped his wrath by sialing fences at the dead of night. H-1s wife was completely under Magowan's control, and both. he says, are now living at the Hotel indisor. New York. Magowan h:.s made Mrs. Barnes believe that he intends to marry her directly he shill be divorced from his own wife. Mrs. Ba3.rm a refuses to return to the city, her husband says in the complaint, and in response to his entreaties to do so she re peat,ily declares she loves Magowan and will not give him op. At thit writing Magowan is in the cus to-iv of Sheriff lPg. of this county, no one having coie fornvard to give hail for him. Later. - apt. .awrtence irrell and Sen ator William H. Skirm this afternoon fur nished aill for Magowan. and he was at onc released from custody. Tire papers in the big damage suit were filed today, and the case will come up for trial at the November term of the supreme court. Chaunecy H. Deasley of counsel for Barnes is drawing up a petition for divorce for him, which, it is expected, will be filed within twenty-four hours. JOHN liRWN'S FORT.

WHY THE PIMA SHOULD NOT BE FILET Argument Made by the Attorney for the Complainants. THE DISTRICT'S REPLY Judge McComas today heard arguments in support of and against the rule to show cause why the District Commission ers s'iould not he enjoined from tiling with the surveyor the first section of the map for the proposed extension of streets and highways in tha District of Columbia. The rule was recently made by Judge Cole, on motion of A. K. and E. J. Tingle, who set forth that the present street extension plan results in taking nearly all of the four and a half acres belonging to them for use as streets and a small triangular park, le.tving their hcuse partly on a por tion of the property rot so used and part ly in the highway. The ground left for the use of the complainants, it is claimed, comprises narrow strips of land, and the grading of the streets through will be very heavy. Mr. William A. Meloy represented the Tingles, while Attorney for the District S. T. Thomas and his assistant, Mr. Andrew B. Duvall, appeared for the Commissioners. Mr. Meloy opened the proceedings today by explaining to the court that the mat ter at issue depended upon the constitu tionality of an act of Congress passed March 2, 1103, and then read the original and amended bills of the complainants, which have heretofore been published in substance in The Star. Mr. Meloy also read the act referred to, after which Mr. Thomas recited the answer of the Com missioners, printed in full in last Monday's Star. Mr. Meloy-'s Argumrent. In opening his argument. Mr. Meloy characterized the case in dispute as one of great gravity. He went on to speak of Washington as the center of free insti tutions, as Jerusalem was the center of religion when Judge McComas interrupted to say: "I understand that speculation in corner lots is now going on in Jerusalem." Mr. Thomas added that there is also considerable strife over the building of railroads there, and Mr. Duvall remarked that it is not near so dangerous to journey from Jericho to Jerusalem nowadays as it was several centuries ago. Resuming, Mr. Meloy declared that his clients are not obstructionists in any sense of the word, but they make objection to a map prepared to conform exactly to the mathematical lines and theoretical ideas of certain engineers. "They propose to rake away the greater portion of our prop erty, lea ring our dwelling sticking up in the air and on the verge of a precipice which the Commissioners are going to dig." The attorney, continuing, argued that the filing of the map is the taking and ap propriating of the property of the Tingles. It is not the taking of the sand, stone and gravel, it was maintained, but the taking af that which is of interest to the owner and without which the land is of no value when the government takes away the value of property and pluces incuntrances on it, from that moment it has appropriated the property. The value of property was d'S 'lared to be the right of building therein for th owner's use, the right of enjoying ivitg thereon and the right to sell. and, it was stated, the law providing that the property of a person shall not be taken away without due process of law may Ie violated without ar y physical taking of the property. That which destroys tthe value or any of its attributes, said Mr. 31eioy. takes away property. "Whether or not this land shall ever I used as proposed. whether or riot it shall ever he pail for, lies entirely in the handis of the Commissioners. it will Le at their disposal if the map is tiled. Thereafter the hands of the owners are tied." d-ela red Mr. Meloy. "it is set down that private property shall not he taken without emn pensation. but in this case there is a t akimg without compensation.' His Closing Remnarks. After recess of one hour Mr. Aleloy read from artit, hoities to show that it is uncon stitutional to deprive a person of the ordi nary use of his property, and that an owner should not be left in a state of uncertainv tegarding his rights. "By the filing of this map," said Mr. Meloy, in conclusion, "the Commissioners do take frot that moment an integral paIrt af our propert.. There is no provisn in the law for payment. although that tak'ng away is instanter with the tiling of tie map. t'hey should take sor.e other mode frot this, which is maniftly gross, for the levelopment of the city." Mr. Thomas, Cor th Commissioners, fol lowed Mr. Alelvy. He contended that the mere filing of the nap will work no injury to the complain rnts, and does not amount to a taking of he property within the meaning of the 'onstitution. Mr. Thomas read from sev ral authorities. and next declared that all property may be needed for public use end it is always subject to the dominion if the state. He thoroughly agreed with lIr. Meloy as to the latter's definition of 'property," but claimed that such has iothing to do with the case. The govertrnent cannot enter this land intil it is paid for, and until that is done he owners may do as they please with the iroperty. "i submit that there is nothing in the ase," corteludetd Mr. Thomas. "The only oint-the constitutionality of the law ras been decided mn former decisions. The filing of the map does not hurt the 'omplainants. They may go ahead and >t-ild, lay out lawns or gardens or do any hing they desire. I think the rule against he Commissioners sholdl lbe dismissetd." Mr. 1Uuvall marie a statement supptle netting that of Mr. Thomas.

WHAT IS THOUGHT HERE LEAVENWORTH, Kan., August 22.-Sen. ator Baker is in receipt of an autograpl letter from John Wailer, formerly Ameri can consul at Tamatave, written from the latter's cell at the Maison Centrale le Clair . vaux, commenting upon his imprisonment. Waller says in part: "As you are a lawyer of long experience I ask you to carefully notice the testimony of Capt. Leavezot and notice that it was on his testimony that the prosecution seems to have based the charge that 1 was guilty of corresponding with the enemy of France. "I submit that the evidence for the prose cution utterly falls to sustain or support the charge under which I am in solitary confinement for twenty years, and by the failure of which the case against me should have been dismissed by the prosecution in so far as it related to a violation of the peral code named In the indictment. "1 further submit that the testimony of the only witness on this point falls to show or prove that either my wife or George E. Tessien are enemies to France in any sense whatever. "it sec ms, then, that the whole case against me rests upon the letter which I wrote to Itatsmania, a young Malagisie man. This relates solely to a business af fair with which France has nothing to do nor does it relate to or concern the French government in any particular whatever." The American Demand. PARIS, August 2'.-A semi-oflicial note was issued today saying it is inexact that the United States government has demand ed the release of Mr. John L. Waller and the payment of an indemnity on account of hla sentence to twenty years' Imprison ment by a court-martial on the Island of Madagascar, where Mr. Waller was former ly a United Status consul. Ground for Demanding Reparation. The following is given in official circles as a statement of the Waller case, so far as the facts have been reported to the United States. They claim that there is no doubt that while in a country occupied by the French Mr. Waller wrote letters to the people the Freach were opposing. These letters were traced to him, and were made the pretext for his arrest and conviction. This arr-st and conviction was irregular. His trial was not fair, and during his im prisonnent, both before and after convic tion, he was treated with great harshness. He was taken to France chained to the deck of a steamer, and though ill and suf fering he wvai imprisoned without proper care. The French government has not explain ed in any satisfactoty manner the irregular arrest and trial. It has attempted to ex cuse it by sayii,; that in time of war mili tary courts and trials are differaiit from civil procedings in time of peace, but this explanation, ini the opinion of the tnited States, does not meet the ease. and in the opi.ion of the State Depattment there is st ita stong probability that Waller's treatment was due to the concessions he hiumed in .\lalagascar. Whein the c"-, was first presented to the I homrtmnt of State it aipetrel that there was little that could he done for Wa!ler.

To the Editor of The Evening Star: It is to be hoped that people who reat the weather reports in The Star will als< read the schedule for the city lights an< see to it that it is complied with. Las night's Star reported that all gas lamps must be lighted by 7:01 p.m. "The lighting is begun one hour before." The first lamp on my street was lighted at 7:30 p.m., and the boy informed me that he was instruct ed to begin at 7:01 p.m., and that The Stai was "off its base." It ought to be consid erable in the pockets of the gas company to begin lighting an hour late'r. and as the people who pay taxes are just that muel out of pocket, it seems that some cne ought to see to this. The policeman on the bloci says it is none of his business. F. C. K. Expensive P'enehes.

NEW YORK, August 22.-Opening prices this morning were slightly lower than I those recorded at the close of yeterday's business, but subsequcntly advanced under a well-distributed volume of business. London tock advantage of the higher 1 prices recci ded yesterday to realize on long holdings, the sales of St. Paul for foreign account being pat ticularly noticeable. The market for foreign exchange was unusually dull, as remitters were not dis posed to pay bankers' rates for foreign ac ccmmodations, in view of the fact that in dications of a general shading off in rates are daily multiplying. Increased offerings of grain and flour bills were reported and all classes of com mercial bills were fracticnally lower. The absence of cable transfers against pros pective gold shipments is encouraging, in dicatipg an early collapse of the outward movemen The railroad list was again forced into a position of secondary importance, the more volatile industrials again monopolizing the bulk of the day's trading. The trading in sugar again demonstrated the presence of a determined opposition to improvement. A reduction in the company's manufac tured product, which extend to all grades, aided the depression during the early transactions, but covering operations later in the day advanced the price for a sub stantial gain over initial figures. In trade circles further reductions are generally ex pected, which will, as a matter of course, be reflected by concessions in the market value of the stock. Chicago Gas was depressed at the open ing on the prospect that the validity of the Fidelity Trust receipts will be determined by judicial inquiry In the very near future. A buying movement inaugurated about the noon hour in the interest of the short account forced the price back well beyond opening figures, but sentiment was not in harmony with the change in figures. American Tobacco sold up 2 per cent to 96 during the first hcur, but was liberally sold down to 9i3'. on assurances that the independent manufacturers would immedi ately begin the manufacture of cigarettes and invade the territory of the present n'onopoly at every possible point. This latter deterrmination is generally regarded as a serious menace to the profits of the American company, and prevailing senti ment is strongly pessimistic on the future of the stock. With tangible evidence of the ability to prevent any serious depletion of the treas ury's gold reserve and the probable early discontinuance of liquidation In the indus trial list, railway speculation should short ly become of such a character as to in spire confidence in much higher prices. In some sections, notably along the lines of the Rock Island system, crops are ready for transportation, and increased earnings must socn be reflected in weekly state ments. Puhlic interest In speculation will revive immediately that evidences of financial growth are reflected in these publish.-d re ports, and the present level of values will gradually give way before sn increasing and leg'timate demand from inves.ors. The final dealings were unchanged in the main features, with prices stea.y around the best for the day. FINANClAL AND COMMIR(IAL.
