Arrested in Germany for a Chicago Defaulter. The Result of Looking Like the Photograph of Another Man. He Experiences Trouble and Delay Reaching the Ears of the Au thorities at Washington. By the Associated Press. Paterson, May 7. Walter W. Mc Cormick, a son of the late Major Gen eral McCormick of Pennsylvania, who now holds a place with the Edison Electric Illuminating company in this city, ie awaiting the action of the sec retary of state on the conduct of United States Consul Mason at Frankfort-on-the-Main, Germany, and of the police of that city toward Mr. McCormick last fall. He says that on the evening of his arrival in Frankfort he was arrested and thrown into jail on suspicion of being the defaulting cashier of the Chi cago Tribune. He had put up at the Swan hotel and in the evening he got aboard a car to go to Palm Garden to hear the music. He could not make the conductor understand him, and a passenger who spoke English and Ger man came to his aid. He gave the man a gold piece equal to 2 and asked him to pay his fare. When the two had been seated at a table in the garden enjoying refreshments which the stranger had ordered, the latter refused to Day for them, although he had failed to return to Mr. McCormick the change for the $2. He then called a policeman and said Mr. McCormick had refused to pay for what he had ordered. Boh were arrested. Mr. McCormick was detained several days, when a man entered his cell and Questioned him in English. He told the stranger his story, and the latter retorted that he lied and told him he was the Chicago defaulter. He pro duced a picture and a description of the defaulter, and so accurate was the resemblance that Mr. McCormick says he didn't blame the police for the mis take. During his incarceration, he says he suffered many hardships. The landlord of the hotel went to United States Consul Mason and to'd him one of his guests, an American, had been ar rested for a criminal by mistake. The consul wouldn't believe it, and said he bad heard nothing about it. Mr. Mc Cormick finally got a letter to Mr. Mason, and the latter then sent his assistant, Mr. Hogue, to the jail. The prisoner told his story to Mr. Hogue and the latter procured counsel for him. He was liberated after proving beyond a doubt that he was not the defaulter. He says the authorities were frightened when Mr. Hogue told them the de faulter had been captured in Spain, and they offered him a carriage to take him from the jail to the hotel When afterward Mr. flicuormick called unon Consul Mason and proved by his papers who he was and told the story of the hardships he had been subjected to. Mr. Mason promised to re port the affair to the secretary of state. When Mr. JHcUorniick returned to this country, several weeks ago, he in quired of the secretary of state whether any such report had been made and learned that the secretary knew nothing of the case. Mr. Mc Cormick then retained his brother, a New York lawyer, to look after the matter, and the latter went on to Washington, pressed the case, and the secretary of state asked for an explana tion from Mr. Mason. The latter re cently submitted a full report of the case. A SECOND VISITATION. THE ONLY United States Depositary IN ARIZONA. Paid Up Capital, - - f 100,000 U. S.

ENDING TROUBLES BY SUICIDE. Dreyer Shot Himself and Frass and BIoss Resorted to Hanging. New York, May 7. Otto Dreyer, a tinsmith, 30 years old, shot himself through the left temple in his room at 156 West Twenth-eighth street early yesterday morning. Six months ago he lost his job and became despondent. A few days ago he told a friend that he had no money, and to avoid being turned out of his room he intended to kill himself. He left two postal cards addressed to friends, on each of which he had written "Good-by." Otto Frass, a shoemaker, 64 years old, hanged himself in his shop in the base ment of 61 Beaver street yesterday morning. He left a letter saying that he did not want to live any longer, be cause he had too much sorrow. He lived alone in a little room in Deiancey street. His daughter died a few months ago, and he was obliged to send his wife to a hospital. He had worked in the shop for more than twenty years. A few days ago he was notified that he would have to move. This notice was the last straw, it is supposed. Gabriel Bloss, a German, 50 years old, was found dead in his room at 3S4 East Eighth street yesterday. He had com mitted suicide by hanging himself some time between Sunday night and yester day morn-ng. He had evidently planned suicide carefully, as about a week ago he began to give away his clothes and other property. Bloss formerly worked in a sugar refinery. He was discharged about a year ago.

The defense had an inning today in the trial of Coxey, Browne and Jones for their May Day demonstration. Attorney Heyman had the opening statement for the de fense. There was no denial or defense for what the corumonwealers had done. He began by saying his defense would consist in the lawfulness of their ac tions. He could remember but one similar occurrence in history and there upon be produced the bible and began to read scriptural passages. He read the passage in the old testament re citing that the Lord commanded Moses to take off his hat because he trod on holy ground. It was evident from this statement that the defense would be based on the brutality of the police toward Brown and be shown that Coxey had not walked on the grass and Brown waB driven through the shrubbery by the police, frank Harper, a newspaper man, was the first witness. He was certain Coxey did not walk on the grass, but various other persons had been allowed to remain on the grass without being arrested, among them Senator Allen of Nebraska. One witness saw the police drive people on the grass. ' COURT BEGINS. AGAINST BRECKINRIDGE. Ministers of Lexington Protest Against the Colonel. A Resolution Denouncing the Candi dacy of the Kentucky Orator. By the Associated Press. Lexington, Ky., May 7. The preach ers of Lexington have united in their fight against Col. Breckinridge's re nomination, and from now on he need not look for any favors at their hands. Today the ministerial union of this city adopted the following which clearly de fines their attitude: Resolved, That the Ministerial Union of Lexington, Ky., deem it a duty of conscience in the fear of God to bear the following public testimony against the renomination or re-election of our present representative in the congress of tbe United States. On the witness stand in the courtroom he has confessed that for years he has indulged in a course of adultery and hypocrisy, and in the light of such a confession we regard his canvass for re- nomination and re-election (1) as an open defiance of all personal chastity, domestic purity, and religious integrity ; (&) as an appeal to voters to ignore personal morality when choosing politi cal candidates; (3) as a corrupt and cor rupting misrepresentation of the social order of our community; (4) as a de- Dauching example to youth ; (5) as in every way a peril to truth and righteousness. LOCAL BRIEFS. An Elderly Woman Said to Have Been Duped In a Conspiracy. Philadelphia, May 7. John Riss Landers, of Chicago, aged 30, who mar ried Mrs. Catherine M. Shacklett, of Alexandria, Va., aged 65, ot the Hotel Andover in this city on last Saturday, was arraigned before Magistrate Eisen brown today on the charge of conspir acy.

The court house was aroused yester day morning from the condition of tor pidity in which it has rested for the past two months. The May term of territorial and federal court was ush ered in and right from the beginning there was activity. there was, ol course, the usual going over of the docket and the usual orders for panels of jurors, grand and petit, but there was also more. Several caaes were set for the same day and were taken up at once. They were generally demurrers and in most cases were overruled. So general, in fact, was their fate that one lawyer paesing out ot the court room last night, said : ' The court seems to be determined that evervthing shall come to a square trial this term." Instead ot the usual early hrst day adjournment the session was continued to a late hour. Among the more inter esting matters at the head of the docket are the many-sided electric light company cases. A panel of faftv trial lurors was or dered for tomorrow. The district grand jurv panel will be returned next Satur day and the federal grand jury on the 21iet. The closeness of these dates marking the supposed divisions of civil, criminal and federal business indicates that no vegetation is going to spring up in the court room during the May term.
