Deputy Coroner's Statement Zelativ* to the Autopsy-The Defedant's Aneggi Admt"lona Shortly after Criminal Court No. 1 WR opened this morning twelve men competent to sit 'as a jury and pass Upon the guIlt or innoonce of Berijamin G. Hill, accused At the murder of his wife. Carrie Theoda Hill, by shooting her November 8 last, were Impaneled as followed: WVilliam W. Tuckey, Frank B. Jonas. John T. Wade, John F. Darcey, W. S. Richardson. Noble J. Walker. W. Seymour McLeod. Frederick E. Queen, Frank D. Hospital, George W. Fairfax, Jame* Garvey and Richard J. Beall, Jr. The defendant, who is of middle age, with gray hair and moustace, and neatly dressed, paid close attention to the proceed inge. It is alleged that late during the aft ernoon of Saturday, November 8 last, he appeared at the boarding house, 815 Mis sourI avenue, which was conducted by Mrs. Hill, and without warning began discharg ing the contents of a revolver at his wife. who was at dinner at the time. Mrs. Hill died at the Casualty Hospital November 12. The first witness called by the govern ment was Dr. L. W. Glazebrook, the dep uty coroner of the Dstrict. Dr. Glase brook performed an autopsy on the body of Mrs. Hill at the morgue. He described the condition in whic!h he found the re mains, and declared that one of the three bullet wounds was necessarily fatal. Dr. E. Y. Gilchrist, who last November was resident physician at the Casualty Hos pital. told of Mrs. Hill being received at that institution about 6 o'clock Saturday evening November 8. The witness also de scribed the wounds and testified that Mrs. Hill died at the hospital November 12. After Mr. Wm. Schoneberger, superin tendent of the morgue, had explained that he removed the body of the deceased from the Casualty Hospital to the morgue, Mr. Edward F. Kane. who was one of Mrs. Hill's boarders. was called to the.stand as one of the eye-witnesses of the shooting. Witness Kane's Statement. According to Mr. Kane, the prisoner, who had not been living at the Missouri avenue house for several days, put in an appearance there about five minutes before $ o'clock, Saturday, November 8. Hill en tered the dining room. The witness, Mrs. Hill, the latter's step daughter. Bertha Marsden. Mr. Wilson and one other person were seated at the table. As Hill entered the dining room, the wit ness stated, he had on his hat, and a cigar was in his mouth. He remarked, "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen." then pass ing around the table, he added. sneeringly, "Hello, Carrie." Next he fired three shots at his wife. Turning to Bertha Marsden, Hill, saying "and you," fired one shot at the girl, but the bullet did not take effect. Mrs. Hill ran from the rbom, but turned while In the hall and uttered the words, "Let me go back and let him finish me." The witness In company with Bicycle Policeman Bean found Hill, soon after the shooting occurred, near the rear yard of the house. "Where Is the pistol?" Inquired the po liceman of the prisoner. "There is what I shot her with," replied Hill, pointing to a weapon lying on the ground, so Mr. Kane testified. "If I didn't kill her I made the saddest mistake of my life." As the prisoner was taken to the street by the policeman the former turned to th6 crowd that had assembled and remarked: "Here I am. Look at me. If I didn't kill her I made the saddest mistake of my life." mrs. Hills Wounds. After a recess Dr. J. R. Wellington was called as a witness for the government. He described the wounds received by Mrs. Hill and expressed the opinion that death was due to blood poisoning, the result of the wounds. Mr. James M. Goldaby, the next witness, explained that he has been appointed guar dian of Mrs. Hill's daughter and Is now in charge at the boarding house formerly con ducted by the deceased. The appearance on the witness stand late this afternoon of Bertha A. Marsden. Mrs. Hilrs little daughter, e,ttired In mourning garb, was a somewhat dramatic feature of the hearing. Bertha at times almost gave way to tears when referring to her mother. She described the details of the tragedy substantially as did Mr. Kane, and also told of repeated assaults of which, the wit ness declared, her mother was the victim and the defendant the perpetrator.. Mr. Hill was arrested several timnes, Ber tha testified, for assaultin-g the deceased. Almost continually while on the stand the little girl gazed at the .defendant with an expression on her face that plainly indi cated an opinion of him far from kindly. TBOOPS TO PARTICIPATE. Cavalry and Artillery to Help C.le brat. Washington's Birthday. Glen. Chaffee, commanding the Depart ment 'of the East, has ordered two troops of the 2d Cavalry and the 4th Battery of Field Artillery at Fort Myer, Va., and the 47th Company of Coast Artillery at Fdrt Hunt, Va., to participate in the celebiration of the anniveruary of Washington's birth day In the city of Alexadria next Monday. This action wasn takeli at the request of the committee of citisens in charge of the cel ebration. Dr. Salame Leaves for Rout. Dr. D. U.

C. Christiane of ge Post Office De partment this afternoon. "You mean In connection with the iwo ance of,. fraud orderr said he. "Answer Ing your question directty, I will say that while I did nott Vqsosly consider or act upon the came of Asnold.& Co. when it was before this department, I am familiar with the records In it." "How about the fraud order recommend ed by Inspector Dicer" Mr. Christlancy was asked. "Although Mr. Dice's report is not before me, I do not recall that he recommended a fraud order. But that is, In fact, an un Important matter. for this office is able to and does accept full responsibility for its actions. Whher or not that report con-, tained a reco endation for a fraud or der, the case w considered upon the evi dence secured and presented. The "evt dence presented did not disclose any actual existing fraud, in the opinion of General Tyner, the assistant attorney general for the Post Office D?epartment, and he there fore closed the case. "Arnold & Co. refused to give the inspec tors who made the investigation a list of their subscribers but did present them with statements of their assets. liabilities and earnings, but the inspectors were not per mitted to verify these figures by an exami nation of the company's books. The Inspec tors, in their report on the case, stated that they were unable to furnish any substantial evidence for the department as to whether or not the company were paying uniearned dividends, or whether they.were in a solvent condition. Department Without Precedent. "E. J. Arnold &. Co. and John J. Ryan & Co., the only St. Louis 'book-making' schemes which have been before this office for consideration.- did guarantee to their subscribers the payment of a dividend of from 3 to 5 per cean per week; but they stated to this dfficet-that these profits had not been paid from the principal, but only from the earnings; and they gave the hold era of -their certiftestes the option of with drawing their prncipal, or leaving it with them without ank guarantee of dividend ex cept. I believe, they were to share in the profits, if any, up to frdm 8 to 5 per cent per week. "It appeared to the department that this insured the return qf the money to t'hose who had been foolish enough to place it with these conc&ns. and then if they rein vested it, they did sont their own.risk. The department is wtheu4 precedent or law to. and cannot. hold a scheme of this kind to be fraudulent utbri 'Its face. "It is, however, my opinion that a law declaring them to -be- such, should be en acted, and time klma ago, in a peraonal let ter, to Senator. Inne., .with. whom I had bad some correap nenoe in 'regard to a bill amending the fftuda. InIkdduced by him, I suggested a &rtwergdeedin*t'- to the present law 'which would-include within its prohibitions the'clawss of !betting' schemes such as the ones under consideration, which are becoming numerous, andi which are op erated, almost whvtly by mail. - "In the memorandum- sent to Senator Jones regarding. this- propsed amendment I stated.-that 'It is elieved; that.the use. of the mails should not be permitted for purposes of gambling on horse races and like events. Schemes devised - for these purposes are becoming very numerous and are widely advertised, remittances of money being solicited from the public by gambling concerns to be bet or wagered on such events under so-called 'systems' of betting. Amendent is Necessary. "That such an. amendment is necessary is apparent from the increasing number of such enterprises throughout the country, and from such climates as those at Chi cago, St. Louis and New York. "I am glad to see that the legislature of Missouri Is taking up this question. If the states would more -closely follow up these and other kindred schemes, so-called 'co-oDierative Investment' and 'bond-invest ment' schemes, operating within their own states, there would be much less chance for fraud than now exists. "If the Postmaster (heneral were to issue a fraud order against a concern without there being sufficient evidence to show that the promoters have been guilty of fraud, or that the scheme must- result in fraud, he would then be, as the Supreme Court says, 'going outsido' of the statute; and no such order could or would be sustained by the courts.- - "We may feel cer.tain within ourselv i that such schemes- as Arnold's and others of the same sort. wll resufi in fraud, yet to recommend the issua.nce of a fraud order, which will be sustained by the courts, we must have evidence -of -actual fraud, or evi dence that the scheme must necessarily re sult in fraud. Many a,culprit goes free be cause the eviden.9 .is Insudficient to convict him, whole the. judge altting in the- case may feel.-thoroughly.-convinced of his guilt, "I hope that. Arnold, and the others, If they have beezt.guilty of fraud, will be suc cessfully prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the la.w; although I have less sympathy for inxesty,rs .ii these schemes than I would have for those in almfost any other, for they must know that threy are risking their m'oney bn gambling, pure and simple.Let.

As In the -absence of the inspector who made the Investigation the department was unable to contradict this statement, we gave him the opportunity to prove his statements, but suggesting to him that we would have the inspectors go over his books if he would give them access to them. to ascertain whether or not he had paid dividends from the principal or from earn ings only. "If it was found that he had, as he claim ed, the principal intact, we asked him whether he would return to the Investors their principal and such Interest as they had actually earned and was to their credit. This he said he would do. and would give satisfactory evidence that he was complying with his promise, and he stated he would eliminate from his scheme any guarantee of profits and would simply state that If there were any profits he would distribute them up to a certain amount. "The case was, therefore, referred to the inspector in charge, Dice, at St. Louis, who made a full and satisfactory examination of their books, and in submitting his report to the department recommends that the ease should be closed. Application of the Law. "As to the application of the law to these schemes, on the ground that they are lot teries, I might say that there seems t be a very general misapprehen$ion by the public as to the scope of the act of September 15. 1890, popularly known as the 'iottery act.' "It is evidently supposed that this statute prohibits the use of the mails not only to lottery enterprises, but to every sort of gam'bltng device as well; and the Post Of fice Department has been severely criti cised. especially, because it has not sup pressed these many concerns which have been of late so widely advertising and car rying on by mail their so-called 'systems' of betting on horse races, soliciting money for Investment in such schemes, and un doubtedly receiving remittances aggregat ing very large amounts. . "The question whether the making of bets or pools on races or like events constitutes a lottery within the meaning of this act, does not seem to have been passed upon by any federal court; but the courts of the several states have held in numerous de cisions that the laying of, such bets or wagers, or this formation of such pools, ts not an offense against statutes prohibit ing the operation of lottery enterprise. - "For example, in People v. Reilly, 50 Michigan, 384, it was held that pool selling is not 'a lottery' within an ordinance against keeping any 'lottery, policy, bucket shop, board of trade, or any other scheme or place for drawing or disposing of money, wheat, or other property.' This decision was explained in the later case of People v. Elliott, to be found in volume 74 of the Michigan Reports, at page 264. Other de cisions to the same effect are: Reilly v. Gray, 77 Hun (N. Y.) 402; People v. Falion, 152 N. Y. 12: Brennan v. Brighton Beach Racing Association, 56 Hun, 188 Opinion by Mr. Thomas. "In an opinion dated January 2, 1894, upon the question whether money may be received each day through the malls from various correspondents, to be placed by the recipients as bets on certain horses entered for the races, without violating the pro visions of the postal laws, John L. Thomas, the then assistar.t attorney general for the Post Office Department, said: "The use of the mails * *e to carry on correspondence for the reception- of money which parties desire to bet upon certain horses, while undoubtedly a gam bling scheme, does not come within the terms of the anti-lottery act. No award is made depending entirely upon chance or lot. the idea being that the investor exer cises his foresight, sagacity or design in selecting the horse upon which his nioney is placed, full opportunity being afforded him for that purpose. * * * - "Apparently the Post Office Department would have no authority whatev'er for ex cluding from' the malls matter relating to these horse race gambling enterprises, on the ground that they are lotteries, for, ac cording to the weight of legal authority, they are not such."

But States It Will Be Bloodless-An ticipates Victory for Laboring - asse. If the predictions of Mrs. Mary Jones, familiarly known to every miner and coal operator of'th6 entirei - Alnited Stktee as 'Mother" Jones. are fulfilled a great change will take place in this country -within a few years. Mother Jones is in the city for the purpose of delivering an address before the Bellamy Club this evening, and-will be with the people of the District but a short time, Her work as organizer of the United Mine Workers.-of-America compels her, shd says, to leave timorrow morning for the New River soft coal region of West Virginia. The situation there -Is so appalling, accord ing to Mrs. Jones, that she must' buckle down to work and allow nothing to Inter fere with efforts in behalf of the toiler in the mines. No more optimistic labor leader than Mother Jones ever lived, and it is her hon est opinion that the day of reckoning for all opponents of human liberty is not far distant. She declares that she expects to live to see the day when' tha laboring masses of the country shall be triumphant entirely over their oppressors. Her hairis ashen white, but her features are clean cut and her eyes flash when she speaks of oppressed human beings. Mother Jones' Views. In an interview with a representative of The Star today Mother Jones said: "The majority of the people of this coun try have a queer conception of the labor movement; they believe that we are a lot of rabble, and that we have worked so long that we don't know how to do any thing else. They are mistaken, as will be plainly demonstrated at a date not far dis tant when these unfortunate men and boys who are compelled to work in the bowels of the earth for a livelihood and .under an op erator wljo thinks he owns an employs body and soul will strike a blow and throw off the shackles which now bind them. "The working men of this country are step by stej beginning to realize the grav ity of the situation and are (loing every thing in their power to lift themselves from their lethargy. They are becoming to be readers,- investigators, and at last their feeble eyes are being opened. "Some la~bor leaders say t.hat- labor and capital must mEet on COmmon grounds for mutual beneflit. 'dch' a ntatemlent furnishes laughing stock, and is, without doubt, one of the, most absurd utterances I have ever heard. Can the lion and the iamb lie down together? No; the lion would devour the lamb. Buch i5 the practical example of capital and labor. In my opinion, labor and capital will never be brought together, as the interests of both bre always cl5posing each other, and it will be so until the labor people -become A'horoughly organized and assert their rights, Two Tormag of Boejism. "Let no man, woman or child think that there are niot tiro forms .of socialism. It is the capitanitic spcialism that- has placed the countiy in peril. This form of socialism is flor ethe benefit and aggrandisement of a few and -the oppression of the many. The socialism of thei laboring classes is more liberal than that of the rich man. It Is for the benefit of the entire country and plaees every man on the same footing. "Du I believe that there will be a classa war? Most assuredly, but without blood shed. It will, be a peaceful class conflict with the ballot, not wIth pistois, swords or implements of war.

OLD JOHN GRAHAMl SAYS ABOUT SPECULA TION There are several reasons why it Isn't safe for yuto trade on 'Change just now, but the particular one Is. that Orahame & Co. wilt fire you if you do. Trading on margin Is a tioed deal Hike paddling around the edge of the old swimnming-hole; It seems ae ad easy at first, but, before a felew knows It, he has stepped off the edge Into deep water. The wheat pit is only thirty feet across, but It reaches clear down to hell. And trading os margin means trading on the ragged edge of nothIng. When a .man buys, he's buying something that the other fellow hasn't got. When a man sells, he's selling something that he hasn't got. And it's bees my experience that the net profit on nothing Is nit. The only safe road to follow in speculation leads straight away from the Board of* Trade on the dead run. Of course, the Board of Trade has Its legitimate uses, but all you need to know just now Is that speculation by a fellow who never owns more pork at a time than he sees on hIs breakfast plate Isn't one of tem.
