iamson. Assistant United States Attorney
Semmes appeared in opposition to the pe
tition.
Introductory Statement.
In an introductory statement Judge
Mackey declared that the proceedings for
writof habeas corpus were not in forma pau
peris, as appeared on the record. A pro
ceeding for habeas corpus, he said, is the
legal right of an individual, and he there
fore declined to pay the deposit for costs
demanded by the clerk of the court. The
case was entered, as a result, it was point
ed out, as "In forma pauperis."
R. S. Farmer, a deputy United States
marshal, was called by Judge Mackey as
a witness. He explained that the 2d day

Judge Mackey asked his wife.
"I did it myself by complaining against

father, refusing to take her home. ' Some !
time ago her father had had her locked up

had destroyed all the flowers in her ward
at St. Elizabeth's. Al! she had done was j
to break the tops off some palms while ab
stracted.
Illumes Herself.
Judge Mackey had never chastisrd her,
declared Mrs. Mackey. His conduct had
always been that of a kind husband. Sne
added, with a smile, that his language had
been harsh at times, but she blamed her
wlf.
"Generally you were an angel," said
Judge Mackey, addressing his wife.
"No, I was not." she said.
"I thought you were," the husband of
the W'jman then remarked.
Mrs. Mackey admitted that she had !
changed her places of residence often, be- i
cause she disturbed the people in the houses, j
This disturbance consisted of screaming i
when the thought occurred to her that her '
father wanted to send her to an insane asy
lum. It was further admitted that her
father had sent the witness funds in small
sums from time to time.

"DON'T TEAR DOWH THE FLAG."
Incident at the Ilrjan Meeting at Al
ton, Illinois.
ALTON, 111., October 0.?Mr. Bryan spoke
to thousands of people here late last night.
His audience which assembled in front of
the court house is said to be the largest
ever gathered in this city. Mr. Bryan
spoke with his hat on and some one yelled
"Take off your hat like Teddy did."
Mr. Bryan did not, however, comply with
this request. He had scarcely begun speak
ing when he found that the bunting and
flags on the stand cut off his view of the
audience. He promptly tore down the ob
struction. This act was variously regarded.
Same one cried "Don't tear down the flag;
others "Tear it down; it is where it ought
to be taken down."
Mr. Bryan made no reference to these re
marks. and when he had concluded the
dismantling process sufficiently to answer
his purpose, he went on with his speech.
He talked first of trusts and then, speak
ing of the republican contention of good
times, said:
They tell us that we are loaning money In
Europe All of you that are loaning money
in Europe hold up your hands.
Not a hand went up and he exclaimed:
"Then it is they, not we, who are loaning
money abroad."
Mr. Bryan then took up the Philippine
question, handling it In his usual manner.
He spoke for about three-quarters of an
hour, and at the conclusion of the speech
returned to St. Louis for the night.
MIRDER MYSTERY CLEARED VP.
I. W. Keller Confessed to Killing Ber
nard YVestdossel.
DANVILLE, Pa., October I W. Kel
ler, who was recently executed in Okla
homa, confessed that he had murdered
seven persons, among them a man at Maus
dale, this county. The news has produced
the greatest excitement at the quiet ham
let for the two-fold reason that a murder
was committed there which had never been
satisfactorily cleared up and that such a
man as I. W. Keller actually lived in the
vicinity at the time, who later left, and
whose ? whereabouts have since been un
known.
The murder near Mausdale up to the
present day is known as the "mystery of
the mine." In 1873 the body of Bernard
Westdossel was discovered In an abandon
ed mine. The evidences of murder were
plain, robbery being the object. Westdos
se!. who had be*n a lieutenant in the
Prussian army, was studying for the
priesthood.

TYLER HOWLED DOWN
t Sensational Scene in Railway Direo
tore' Meeting in London.
TO REORGANIZE GRAND TRUNK
Ex-President Writes Insulting Let
ter to Sir Charles Wilson.
CHARGES OF FRAUD
LONDON, October 9.?There was a sensa
tional scene at today's meeting: of the share
holders of the Grand Trunk railroad of
Canada, between Sir Charles Rivers Wil
son. president of the road, and Sir Henry
Tyler, the company's former president. Sir
Charles Wilson, in addressing the meeting,
detailed the improvements made In the line,
congratulated the shareholders on the In
crease in revenue, dilated on the rise In
the cost of material and in the rates of
wages, and explained the resolution of the
day, which provided for the reorganization
of the Chicago Grand Trunk by the Cana
dian company.
After outlining the proposition. Sir Charles
said he had received a letter from Sir Henry
W.Tyler.the former president of the road,ex
pressing disapproval of the reorganization
and asking that the letter be read before
the meeting. White with passion. Sir
Charles declared that vile language em
ployed by Sir Henry justified him in putting
the letter in the fire. The president of the
road continued his denunciation of the for
mer president until the audience rose, cry
ing, "Put It in the fire!" "Burn it!"
"Shame!"
Scene of Great Disorder.
There was a scene of great disorder and
then there arose a cry: "Tyler is here."
In a moment the venerable figure of ex
Presldent Tyler was seen walking toward
the directors' rostrum.
As soon as Sir Charles Rivers Wilson re
covered his composure, he said:
"Tyler, stand up. Tou who have villifled
us. And repeat before us all the charges
you have made.
Cheers mingled with groans greeted Sir
Henry W. Tyler, who maintained that the
Chicago Grand Trunk was owned and con
trolled by the Canadian Grand Trunk, and
that, therefore, the directors were making
false pretenses when they represented the
reorganization as a transaction between two
Independent concerns.
Continuing, Sir Henry asserted that the
srheme involved the repudiation by Presi
dent Wilson of the Chicago second mort
gage bonds, which, he asserted, were cut
down from 5 to 4 per ecnt.
"Be honest," shouted Sir Henry Tyler,
"don't repudiate them."
Amidst a roar of hisses and jeers the
voice of Sir Henry was drowned, but he con
tinued waving his arms and shouting In
audible charges against Sir Charles Rivers
Wilson, who stood up. and In equally heat
ed language absolutely denied Sir Henry's
allegations and abused his administration.
(loth Speaker*' Voire* Drowned.
Half the time Sir Henry was on his feet
endeavoring to interrupt, and the extraor
dinary spectacle was presented of the pres
ident and ex-president of a great railroad
standing before a howling audience, both
of them shouting at once and neither
speaker being audible. It was oniy when
several persons stepped forward with the
intention of hustling Sir Henry Tyler out
of the room that he ceased speaking.
The meeting then, by a large majority,
approved the directors' plan to reorganize
the Chicago Grand Trunk, with a guarantee
of the interest on the bonds to be issued by
the new company.
The meeting also gave Sir Charles a vote
of thanks.
During the course of the report the pres
ident urged the shareholders to persist in
improving the line. He added that the sur- i
plus earnings of the Central Vermont road
would, for the present, be applied to this
purpose.
President Wilson expressed the belief that
the pan-American exposition at Buffalo
would greatly add to?the business of the
road, but he considered it doubtful if the
expenses of the road, in view of the labor
troubles in the United States, would be re
duced during the coming year.

TIIK KKKDKHICK FAIR.
Opening Today Wni Under Most Fa
vorable Condition*.
Special I>l?pat<-h to Thf Evening Star.
FREDERICK, Md? October 9.?The forti
eth annual fair of the Frederick County
Agricultural Society opened today under
the most auspicious circumstances. Yeater-*
day it rained during the entire day, but
this morning the sun shone brightly and
made the day an almost perfect one. The
exhibitors this year are more numerous
than ever before in the history of the as
sociation, and the departments are all full.
The stock exhibition is the finest that has
ever been seen in this city, the cattle being
especially large, and includes exhibitors
from New York, Ohio, Virginia, Pennsyl
vania and New Jersey. The art depart
ment and the ladies' fancy work depart
ment are both filled with the most beautiful
exhibits. The other attractions this year
are far better than last year, one of which
is the automobile races each day. Ains
worth, own'd by R. Hentche of Baltimore,
will go against the track record,
made by Halpoin-ter.
Adlai E. Stevenson is expected to be pres
ent on Friday to make an address, and he
is expected to make "get-away day" the
largest of the week. Democratic managers
are fearful, however, that Mr. Stevenson
will not draw as large a crowd as he ought
on that day and may abandon their plans
for his coming.
The advisory board of directors of the
Frederick fair for Washington. D. C., is
composed of Washington Danenhower, O,
G. Staples, George Boteler, George W." Cis
sell, Robert Weaver and John R. Kelley.

The Wlndom Ulnisier at Tako Inlet
Break* Apart.
TAKOMA, Wash., October 9.?Engineer
G. W. Garside, wno has returned to Juneau
from Taku Inlet, reports that ho found the
appearance of things wonderfully changed
by Che slipping into the sea of half a mile
of the big Wlndom glacier. For a century
this glacier has been dead, and its terminal
' extended Into the Inlet as an immense
crescent-shaped bar. Big trees grew on
the bar, showing it had been there many
years. Garside found all this changed. In
stead, an immense body of ice Is floating
about with huge Icebergs and a wide clian
nel has been cut through the bar to tide
water.
His Investigation convinced Garside that
tfne river running beneath uhe glacier be
came blockaded, resulting In backing up
an Immense volume of water beneath and
behind the glacier. This lake finally be
came so large that its tremendous pressure
forced Its way to the sea. In doing so li
broke off a section of Wlndom glacier a
half mile in length along the glacier's front
500 feet deep and several hundred feet wide'
This Ice mass was driven through the big
sand bar. cutting a deep, wide channel,
through which the river from underneath
the glacier now flows unobstructed to the
sea. Heretofore this subglacial drainage
reached tidewater through a number of
creeks. Several fishermen residing near by
were grearly frigmened at what they sup
posed was an earthquake when the glac'e
broke off.

The Holt will case waa to have been

TRIALS IN THE NAVY
INCREASED? WORK OF THE JUDGE
ADVOCATE GENERAL.
Iuaflleient Prison Aceomnodatiou
Compnliory Attendance of Civil
ian* at Courts-Martial.
Captain 8. C. Lemly, Judge advocate gen
era] of the np.vy, has made a report to the
Secretary qf^khe Navy kn regard to the op
erations of his bureau during the past fiscal
year. He s^ys that an Important part ot
the Increase of the business of the office is
the greater number of court-martial cases,
both general and summary, that have been
received, owing to the recent increase in
the personnel of the navy and the marine
corps. The appointment of a solicitor, to
be assistant to the Judge advocate general,
authorized by the? last Congress, will. It Is
believed, be of great advantage in connec
tion with that class of work for which time
and research are essential.
Since the passage of the act of Congress
extending the time for the removal of the
charge of desertion. May 24 last, more than
2U0 cases have been received and acted
upon. About 75 per cent of them received
favorable; action. Captain Lemly says that
this act of Congress, will enable the depart
ment to do Justice to many enlisted men of
the navy and marine cofps who rendered
valuable service during the war of the re
bellion and who, when they were no longer
needed, left the service without the formal
ity of a discharge and are now technically
charged with desertion.
Inanfflclrnt Prison Room.
The judge advocate general says that the
naval prison at Mare Island, Cal., Is of In
sufficient capacity to accommodate the num
ber of prisoners sent to It. which num
ber has considerably Increased, owing prin
cipally to the large naval force maintained
In the far east. It Is believed, however, that
the $15,000 appropriated by Congress for
enlarging that Institution is sufficient for
the purpose of accommodating all prisoners
likely to be sent there under ordinary con
ditions. The capacity of the prison at Bos
ton Is also reported to be Insufficient, and
a recommendation is made for the construc
tion of an additional wing to the building.
The prison Is reported to bo In a satisfac
tory condition.
Bonnty and Prise Cases.
The cases of Admiral Dewey, Rear Ad
miral Sampson et al. and Capt. Charles H.
Davis, on account of prizes taken during
the Spanish war, are pending In the Su
preme Court of the District of Columbia,
sitting as a prize court. With respect to
claims for bounty. It was found that dis
tribution could not be properly made until
certain questions of facts and law relating
to the vessels engaged, their cargo, com
parative force, co-operation extended by
shore batteries, torpedoes and mines, the
status and right or transports, etc., had
been finally determined. Claims for bounty
were accordingly referred to the Court of
Claims. That court has substantially de
termined all the questions involved, and
the claims have been referred to an audi
tor for detailed report.
Compulsory Attendance of Witnesses.
The judge advooate general renews his
recommendations for legislation compelling
civilian witnesses to attend naval courts- i
martial and courts of Inquiry, authorizing
the -use of depositions before such courts,
the simplification of the methods of exam
inations for promotion and retirement and
the reclasKiflvHtlon of naval vessels accord
ing to a more convenient and appropriate
rule than now exists. He lays emphasis on
the fact that while the legislation would
operate advantageopsly to the department
and to the service generally, no expense
Wiiuld result therefrom.

AT THE WHITE HOUSE
The French Note Discussed by the
Cabinet.
RETURN OF PRESIDENT M'HKLEY
? ? 1 ? 1
Will Soon Begin Work on His
Message.
TOPICS TO BE TREATED
President McKlnley and hi* cabinet spent
two hours and a half together today, the
session being the first in several months to
be attended by nearly all the members.
Secretary Root was the only absentee. So
many members of the cabinet have been
out of Washington during the summer
months, and even up to this week, that at
time3 not more than one member was here.
Frequently only two members were in the
city. While the Chinese outlook was the
main topic today, there was naturally much
(alk of a reminiscent nature, politics being
uppermost. No member of the cabinet, it
is stated, has the least fear of the outcome
of the election. There has never been a
more sanguine body of men surrounding a
President. They do not see a weak place
in the republican lines, and they congrat
ulated the President on the satisfactory
trend of the campaign.
The French note was the main topic of
the Chinese discussion. It 1s said that a
reply to this note has been partially fin
ished, and will soon be made. It la under
stood that Information has been received
from Minister Conger in response to the re
quest that he send the names of the most
guilty of Chinese officials In connection
with the Boxer uprising. Mr. Conger has
sent the names of fifteen or twenty promi
nent Chinamen who ought to be punished
or disciplined for their part in the attack
on the legation and the uprising In general.
As these names have been furnished by
the best source to be had, the government
can say what it thinks is commensurate
punishment, at least It can indicate such
punishment to the Chinese government.
The main proposition of the F rench note
was that the governments have their rep
resentatives in China ascertain whether the
r<cent imperial edict completely names the
persons deserving punishment. The other
pri positions relate to the dismantling of the
Chinese fortifications and the prohibition of
the importation of arms Into China.
It is stated that a telegram has been re
ceived saying that the marines at Pekln
will leave there on Thursday.
The President'* Message.
The cabintt officers will at once begin
work on their annual reports to the Presi
dent. so <hat he may have them in the
preparation of his annual message to Con
gress. on which he will soon begin work.
The President's message this year will be
a long one and will necessarily tcuch upon
many important matters. The one of great
est Importance will be the subject of the
Philippines.
Should the November elections definitely
show the country's approval of the admin
istrations Philippine policy it is expected
that the President will make some valuable
recommendations to Congress as to the fu
ture of the islands. These recommenda
tions will be based to some extent upon a
r? nort that will be made between now ana
December by the Taft commission, now
workinif in the islands.
The condition of affairs in Cuba. Porto
Rico and Hawaii will take up much of the
space of the message. The President will
sneak of the constitutional convention in
Cuba, and may go so far as to recommend
that the United States take the preliminary
steps to retire from Cuba. This, however,
is such an important matter as to be held
open until the' time for solution has ac
''There'will be some dit?cua?lon of the war
revenue act. A reduction in the taxation
will be urged by the President and flgures
will be presented" showing how rouch t
treasury can afford a reduction. It to pos
sible that the matter may not to ftrily dto
cussed in the main.message, but may be
held for a special message. The treas >
has not shown as larnre a s"rP,us
expected this fiscal year and the adminis
tration might prefer tohoidofffor afew
months to see the direction of affalra in tne
treasury finances. An accurate knowledge
of what can be expected must be p?S3*Sf*g
before the President and Secretary
can make detailed recommendation* as
a reduction in the war taxes.

Mrs McKinley's health has greatly im
proved at Canton. The Prudent himself

Ambamsdor to Italy.
The President is expected to soon an
nounce the appointment of an ambassador
to Italy. This vacancy was caused by the
resignation of General Draper. The place
was offered to ex-Governor Wolcott of Mas
sachusetts, but declined by him. A majori
ty of the Massachusetts republicans have
now united on Mr. George von L. Meyer,
and It is thought he will receive the ap
pointment.

ur THE SITRBXE COURT.
HotJoa Mad* to Advancc tkt IlMlf
Ettr?4ltloa Caic.
In tta? Supreme Court today Assistant
Attorney General Maurey for the govern
ment moved to advance the Neely extradi
tion case and announced that he had re
ceived a telegram from the opposing coun
sel In New York stating there would be no
objection to this course. The date which
will be set for the case has not been de
termined.
The court announced that It would hear
oral arguments in the Chicago drainage
canal case November 12. This suit Involves
the state of Missouri agatnst the state of
Illinois and the Chicago drainage commis
sion, the contention being that the Chicago
drainage canal from l^ake Michigan empty
ing Into the Mississippi river pollutes the
drinking water of the city of St. Louis.
A motion was made to advance the case
of John H. Goertxe, the New York tobacco
Importer, involving the right to collect duty
on goods Imported into this country from
Porto Rico. Mr. Goertxe appealed to the
Supreme Court against the attempt to col
lect 16 per cent of the Dinglcy rate on to
bacco bought from Porto Rico, in accord
ance with the provisions of the Porto
Rlcan tariff bill. A similar case, involving
the Importation of fourteen diamond rings
from the Philippines, also will be moved
forward at the same time. In this rase one
M. L. J. Peipke was arrested in Illinois on
charge of smuggling the rings mentioned,
the contention being that the Philippines,
as part of the United States, are not sub
| ject to tariff laws.
Counsel In the case of Alice Well and
others asked leave to have case dismissed
from the Supreme Court. The matter will
be taken under advisement. The Weil case
is a companion case to the famous La
Abra mining case, in which a decision was
rendered in the Court of Claims last session
against the La Ahra Company on the
ground that they had obtained fraudulently
a large indemnity to which they were not
entitled from the Mexican government.
Motions were made to advance five cases
involving similar pointa known as the Ken
tucky railroad rate cases. These cases are
to test the Jurisdiction of the state railroad
commission in Kentucky to tlx rates on the
railroads.
The cases of the United States against
the states of North Carolina, South Caro
lina, Florida and Louisiana today were dis
missed in accordance with the decision of
Congress in these cases during the last
session. They involve certain funds due
the United States from the four states
named. The claims were adjusted In the
settlement following the state expenditures
on account of the Spanish-American war.
and the action of the court today was
merely formal in clearing the cases from
the record.
FISH COMMISSION" WORK.
?
Gratifying; Renin in in Propagation
and Distribution.
Mr. George M. Bowers, United States fish
commissioner. Is receiving most gratifying
reports from the various branches of his
Important bureau about the excellent re
sults of the work accomplished bo far this
year In the propagation and distribution of
fishes and lobsters. The record of the year
ending June 30, 1000, was the best in the
history of the commission, but the record
of the present year thus far shows even
better and broader results of a beneficial
character. Particularly satisfying success
has attended the work In connection with
lobsters.
the: NAVAL POLICY BOARD.
Secret Session Held by Ita Memliern
Today.
The naval policy board, also known as
the Dewey board, held a session today, at
tended by Admiral Dewey and various
other members. This board has to do with
the larger questions of policy concerning
the navy. Its deliberations are strictly
secret, but In view of the pending naval
movements In China it is presumed that
the Chinese naval situation came in for
some attention, as well as the general de
velopment of the navy, which will soon
come to the consideration of Congress.
?
THEY WITHHELD INFORMATION.
Forty or Fifty Arrests for Failure to
Aninrr Census Qneationi.
Information has been received at the cen
sus ofilce which shows that forty or fifty
persons throughout the United States have
been arrested for refusing to reply to ques
tions of census enumerators. When the
bill making an appropriation for the cen
sus was passed a penalty clause was em
bodied in it providing for a fine of not to
exceed $100 in oase of any one refusing to
answer questions of enumerators. While
forty or fifty arrests were made not over
half a dozen fines were imposed and those
were for small amounts, for the reason
that when the situation of a court trial
was faced by the culprits they decided it
would be better to answer the enumer
ator's questions. In the cases of those who
never did reply to the schedule of ques
tions because they regarded it as inquisi
torial the information was obtained from
some other source by the enumerators.
EVIDENCE AGAINST YOUTSEY.
Lieut. Rlckett* Gives Damnglng Tes
timony at Today's Trial.
GEORGETOWN, Ky.. October In the
trial today of Henry E. Youtsey, charged
with being a principal in the shooting of
Governor Goebel, Arthur Branch of Frank
fort f?aid he delivered a one-pound package
to Youtsey for ihe Adams Express on Jan
uary 24, sent from Cincinnati.
George L. Barnes, auditor's clerk at that
time, sail he saw Youtsey and Dr. Johnson
from the mountains examining a box of
cartridges, and that Johnson said he would
take the cartridges as they fitted the gun.
Lieut John Ricketts of Knox county tes
tified that Youtsey told him the only way
to settle the contest was to put Goebel out
of the way; that Goebel could be killed from
the executive building, and the man who
fired the shot could escape through the
basement; that his (Youtsey's) job depend
ed on this contest, and he wanted it settled
his way. ?
He said Youtsey posted men in the hall
way of the executive building and told
them something was going to happen; that
a mam would come down the stairway.
When they could all go out together. Wit
ness did not remain, but was across the
street when the shots were fired.
On cross-examination Ricketts admitted
he did not know the name of a single one
of the men.
Sam Shepard of Frankfort said he saw
Youtsey about a minute after the shooting
running through the hall of the executive
building from the east entrance, with a
pistol in his hand.
With Youtsey and all the attorneys in the
case the jury was then taken to Frankfort
to examine the scene of the shooting.

Profit Taking by Small Operators a
Feature in Stocks.
ONE BIG SALE BY LONDON
Steel Shares Were Stronger on
Reported Big Order.
GENERAL MARKET REPORTS,
Special Dispatch to The Evening Star.
NEW YORK. October y.?Profit-taking by
small traders, sales to test the market by
pools and the marketing of lO.OtW shares
by L<ondon were the chief features In to
day's stock market. In view of the fact
that selling was the conspicuous feature,
the net result Is encouraging, in spite of,,
the fractional changes.
During the first hour the sales for foreign
account checked the advance and gave the
market an appearance of heaviness. I^ater
in the day, and after London selling had
ceased, prices rallied slightly, and there
was no pronounced selling from the various
cliques.
The money market continues lo act as a
deterrent influence, and commission houses
refrain from advising immediate purchases.
There is an undercurrent of good buying
based on probable election results. Aceu- '
mulation of stocks In the trunk lines Is go
ing on quietly in anticipation of a later ad
vance. The money rate is ignored in these
transactions, and the good news of another
character is relied upon to outweigh even
a temporary advance in money.
The legal rate for call loans would only
supply bargains to the larger interests, who
are equal 10 holding their putx-hases under
adverse conditions. What there la of really '
significant business is found to favor the
long account. A i>o!ltical market Is sure to
be in evidence for another fortnight, but
after that the market is apt to follow its
proverbial custom of supposing the elec
tions over and begin a discounting of their ,
significance.
Rumors of impending gold imports were
rife, but no confirmation was to be had.
The leading foreign houses were quoted as
being willing to bring gold to this side, but
thus far had made no definite contracts.
The fact that gold can t>e had If wanted>
goes a long way toward disposing of the
desire to Inaugurate the movement. 8hould
the money market reach a point of activity
making operations burdensome the banks
can easily adjust the difficulty.
The money that Is going to tne south and
west goes as the result of purely normal
conditions and is not alarming. Should
traders in stocks be obliged to pay a higher
rate for their loans it will be only because
of the commercial needs of the country.
Such a condition is healthy and prices are
not likely to decline materially simply be- ?
cause th$ exceptionally low rates for money
i due to idleness of capital gives way to a
fair return under a normal demand.
The Steel stocks were given some strength
by rumors of a purchase of 100.000 tons of
steel .rails at li*? per ton. This contract
was said to have been made by a large
eastern trunk line, and would be significant
to the extent that it would be taken as a ,
victory for the steel companies in their
efforts to control the market. Heretofore
the railroads have insisted upon at $2.'! rate,
and the making of such a contract would
bring in many duplicates. The closing was
irregular, but confidence in the future of "
the market does not decrease.
