The police department was yoster cln yaaked to lookout for an arrest Richard Scannel and Patrick Speedy, deserters from the United Stales navy, who escaped from the brig of the army transport KilpatrlcU Monday night. Scanne! and Shectly "stowed nwny" on the Kllpalrtck at Manila, it is Bald,! after deserting from one of the men of war In the Philippines. They thought their Identity would not be discovered and expected thnt thov would he able to land without diffi? culty upon the arrival of the transport nt this port. At Oibraltar. however, the sktpner of the KllPatrick was not? ified to look out for several deserters nnd the stowaways were identified.

THE TITLED SPENDTHRIFT. How Count Boni Castellane Made the Gould Fortune "Sk'.ddoo." At the Hearing ot ino castellane creditor's cases to-day Maitre Cruppi, us Mine Gould's lawyer, told how Count Bon I tell into the hands ot tlio money-lenders and how he was driven to desperate straits to raise money. Count Honl. the lawyer said, was even compelled lo descend into trade to raiae money, and bought and aold goods just like the common tradesman whom It Is tlie tasluou I of the Kreuch aristocracy to ue nounce. Maitre Cruppi talked lor I four hours, mostly with the tech nu ul road lag or the civil code, the marriage contract, and other dry doc? uments. In the middle of his speech the Judge went to sieep and slipped la his chair, aim several persons among the audience snored. Cruppi demonstrated how Count Uonl had been the victim pi usurers, Isidore Zlegler, the principal cred? itor, claiming over a million trancs (or sums advanced with which to manage the count's household arfalrs. /regier showed lilniselt the cniei of the nand of nincy-lenders, aho I Cruppi said that i&iegler was n sly I ox, tor he advanced the least ikis Blble amount of money bimseir and always got somebody else to turnish the funds. Cruppi advanced proofs of usury in the lollowing trans? actions: in one case Count Mom gave a note ror 44,(iuu francs, but actually received in two payments only 29,0tn> rrancs.. Again he gave a note for 21,000 rrancs and received actually H.ooo rrancs. Being unable to pay this when due, the money? lender exacted a note renewed at 20,000 francs. The sum total re? ceived by Honl, however, was only 17,000 rrancs. , On another note tor 5ft,0i?0 inines Bonl actually got 20,000 trancs. Countess Anna ileiiied any partic? ipation in or benefit from these loans and said they were made without nor knowledge or consent. She re? fused, thererore, to Do held respon 'stulu for the same. Concerning the tradesmen's bills, said tMnitre Cruppi. Countess Anna is always willing to pay the same when they are le jglttmatc demands. Cruppi snowed liow a dressmaker, claliuiiig nearly 20,000 francs, did not fumlsh any dresses to the count? ess, but lent the money to Boni. Mo, too, an antiquity dealer, claim? ing pay men i for numerous objects of furniture, really sold the countess only two. The other items or the ?nil figuring as pieces of furniture were disguised loans. One denier claims that ne sold the CaBtellanes two sofas, one tor tiO.000 rrancs and the oilier for 80,000 francs; a chest ot drawers tor ,9.000 francs and a ..esk ror 20,000 trancs. countss Anna says the last two items were delivered at her house, but she never saw the others. Notes tor the same were signed by Count Moni without his wife's knowledge. Another dealer sent his bill for a cone pot, 200 francs, and an antique bottle. 20,000 rrancs, but these object * Bonl sent as presents to his women friends. Concerning Count uonl's extrav? agance, Cruppi said he had not only spent his wire's entire income, whicp she paid directly Into his hands our Of generosity, but used up his per? sonal sources of revenue. Cruppi detailed mortgages amounting to nearly V.ooo.ooo rrancs raised by Count Bonl on five separate personal and real estate properties. Bonl also speculated la an i hint ties, but did not have much luck in these transactions. He generally lost, and Anna had to root the bills. However, sometimes Bonl did make a profit, notably with a transaction with So llgman, the antiquarian or the Place Vendonie. nere Bonl bought goods which he resold, making a pront of 570,000 francs. '1 his sum should have been contributed to the expen? ses ot the household, but It was not. it wont in the usual direction' of lordly extrnvagunce. Count Bonl's oxtrn*/agaiiee,"""CriippT hiiki. sometimes ran pretty close to wiiat ijy anyone eine might bo called a swindle, One piquant detail con? cerned Mademoiselle Nlmidorr, a great beauty ami a singer at the Ura'iid Opera here. She sold Honi a jivb lot oi rich rings, pins, and neck? laces lor I20,UI)U ..alles. She holds Honl's reeelpt for the goods, hut never got the money. She applied to the countess Tor payment, hut Anna declared she hud never set eye? on the jewels or heard them mentioned. Moni, when asked for in explanation, declared he had shown them to Anna and she hud picked <>ut those she preferred and hud sent them to a jeweler to reset, and he had intended returning tho remainder to Mile. Nlmldoir. it turned out. however, so Cruppl de? clared, tnat lion I hud simply taken i he jewels arnuiitl the corner and ?"old them to a jeweler tor 6t>,UUt) l runes. Munition; then wrote Count Mom a letter which was read in court, saying that she knew all American women were charming, and was sure that the countess would see this attair was properly settled. Cruppl declared (hat Anna was wax in Honl's hands. Ho used to write letters to her family or to business people and obliged her to Copy i hem and a\an her name. Crup? pl snld (hat Honi resorted to tricks to make Anna write these letters, telling her they were Intend? ed f ir line person and then he mailed ihem to somebody else. Honi wrote very well in Rngllsh. Cruppl summed up by saying that Countess Anna was perfectly willing to pay the tradesmen's bills, but refused to settle the claims or dress? makers! and furniture dealers who had never delivered goods to her.
