Arrest of a Leading New Jersey
Frank A. Magowan Taken to
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
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
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.

The non-appearance of a quorum prevent.
ed a session of the city council last night.
The council will meet Monday night, whn
it is thought the band question will be
brought up. It is understood, however.
that the bonds have been sold and that the
work of Improving Main street will begin
Monday. Mr. W. E. Anderson of Baltimore,
who secured the Washington avenue work,
will also do the Main street work at his
b:d of $23.9'45. The street will be sixty feet
wide, the sidewalks eight feet wide, with a
foot and a half parking. The road will be
nine inches deep at center or crown and
six inches In thickness at the gutter.
Ninety days are allowed for the completion
of the work.
The committee, consisting of the mayor
and city council, appointed Monday night
went over the Washington avenue work
Tuesday. The committee found a few pock
ets in the avenue, which the contractor
will he directed to fix up. The committee
will also order the proper draining of the
streets crossing and abutting on said
avenue. The committee also thought thene
was a little more sand than necessary put
on the avenue, and w:ll wait for heavy
rain to see how the sand settles. Outside
of these excetions. the work appears en
tirely satisfactty. and will no doubt be
ac optel at the 'Thlay night session.

Hearing in the Injunction Cast
Brought by the Tingles.
Argument Made by the Attorney
for the Complainants.
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
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
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

Mr. Thomas, Cor th Commissioners, fol
lowed Mr. Alelvy.
He contended that the mere filing 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

The filing of the map does not hurt the

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
"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
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

The Haur for Lighting Lamps.
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.

London Speculators Taking Profits
on St. Paul.
A Determined Bear Clique in Sugar
f "
s Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
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
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
Puhlic interest In speculation will revive
immediately that evidences of financial
growth are reflected in these publish.-d re

gradually give way before sn increasing
