PETTI AOTSOF OPPRESSION Superintendent Churned wltli Laying .Men Off for Tiilal Derelictions. "Unfair Dtaerliiilnutlnn In Fuxor of "Sealih" a rT Asulnst Union Men Board ot Directors to Act. ThJk differences between Superintendent Botelcr and" the eiffployes of the Columbia Ilnll,wav are notjmly not jot adjusted, but upon Mr. Holder's part, they seem to be growing more serious, and tho relations btjwcen the. opposing forces are becoming more (attained. "The Charges filed against Mr. Botelcr aro understood to bao been iuformally considired by tho board of directors, but declie action -was deferred until the mat ter can come before the full board at the regular meeting to be held ou the second Tuesday -In .this month. The men have been aEsurcd, It is htated, that they bball bac a hearing at that time. President Baker, it is alleged, called be fore him come of tho men whose names vicre appended to the charges and inter rogated them concerning the allegations made against the Mipenntendcnt. INVESTIGATION PROBABLE. Chkf Clerk .Adams was pre&ent, and the statements of the employes were carefully noted. This is regarded by the petition ers s corroborate e of the belief that a general investigation will be made. Meanwhile, the men allege, Mr Botelcr is htm lag by all the means at his command to goad them to open revolt, lie is punish ing conductors and gripmen for what they cluim are the most trivial orfenses, and instances of this alleged persecution are g lven. It is stated that Conductor Glasscock was laid off and made to lose time for talking to a pabR-nger; that another con ductor of the same name suffered the same pennlrv for resting on the rear end of ins car, and the fact that he was at the time suffering from rheumatism, con tracted in the February blizzard, was ignored For leaving home old transfers on a table in tiie office Conductors Coo per and Kelly v. ere both laid orf Con ductor Jamison was accused of reading a newspaper while on duty and of going in side the car during the recent storm, and he was made to lose time as a punishment. CouductorMannel, for l)eing Inside of his car during the same storm, was also laid ofr. Conductor Bell was punished in the same wav for leaning in the window of his car. Grip in an Uidgeway was also laid off for neglecting to fasten the gates ot his car, in tho hurry of departure over the line when his car was behind time ALLEGED TINDICTTVENESS. All these and other charges are dis cussed among the force, and they at tribute ir altogether to the vindictive spirit of Botelcr, who, they say, is mak ing good hib boast of making them "walk the chalk" and "toe the mark." Jt is further alleged that what Boteler does jwt learn of the men's acts through his "spj" lw obtains by driving along the line, watching for little departures from strict discipline upon which to baso his arbitrarj methods of punishment. Air. Boteler is said to have reprimanded Gripmau Brown for having left his fender up Investigation prmed that the car was not equipped with a fender. It is further alleged that a non union man ran Ins car off the track, and was after wards promoted to a conductor's place, and when one nf the old employes did the same thing he suffered the loss of a week's wages. TOND Or THE SCABS There are, it Is claimed, sixteen scabs new on tho line, and that these men are basking In the superintendent's favor. The union men believe Mr. Boteler's purpose is to drive the union men either Into abject sub mission to bis dictation oroff tho road, and as proof of this they cite the fact that union men have been laid off, one- or more each day, for offenses similar to thoso above enumerated, ever since they united wit h the organization, while, on the other hand, not a single non-union man has lost a day for similar offenses The emplojcs are patiently awaiting the action of the board of directors. They still claim that with a fair presentation of their case the board will do them justice. Tliy say the patrons of the road are in sj mpathV with thnm in the controversy.and that the company cannot fail to Eee that Mr Boteler is practically alone in support of the measures of oppression lie has been fit to enforce against men w ho have been much longer in the company's service t han lie lias.

Iaeutonmit Dorn'H Case Tulten nn tho Opportunity to Xlnfoico u Uo&mhl in "Wutchfuliiesfc. and Care. Secretary Herbert has acted on the findings of the couit-martial fceld at tho Mare Island navy jard in, the cases of Lieut. W. "W. Buchanan, division officer, and Lieut. J". Bom, ordnance officer of the Oljmpia, who were tried for culpable neglect, resulting in an accident to a gun and causing the death of Gunner Johnson. Secretary Herbert approved the acquittal of Buchanan, but lu tho case of Dorn dis approed the findings of the court-martial, which also acquitted him. Both men, however, have been relieved from ar rest and restored to duty, and there will bo no further proceedings. In rem sing to approve the findings of the court in the case of Lieut. Born, Secretary Herbert read quite a lecture to naval officers. The accident was caused by the failure of some one to fill the re coil cylinder with liquid. The cylinder was supposed to have been filled at Mare Island. Daily inspection of the recoil cylinder is required, though no particular person is designated to make the inspection. The Secretary sajs. "it canuot be that on board a Uuited States man-of-war so plain a regulation can be violated and no one to blame." He quotes from the drill book and ordnance instructions, showing what is the duty on Bhip, ami continues "It would be impracticable to pre scribe in this book, or otherwise at the Department, that each of the several duties therein required to be performed should be imposed upon some particular person on board the ship. The Depart ment can not approve a decision which seems to hold that in a case like this an ordnance officer is tint responsible simply because the regulations do not so declare in so many words. "Responsibility and authority go to gether. An orficec exercises control over and superintendence of all who are be neath him. ir duties are required to be performed in his department of the ship, it ib for him to perform them or bee that others do. "It is abundantly proven that the ac cused was a faithful and zealous officer, but fidelity and zeal in other directions can not excuse such culpable negligence as has been exhibited in this case." LOOKING BKATH LS THE! FACE. A .Man Thinks llo'd Better Die and Take's Aconite. A well dressed joung man apparently not yet thirty years old, walked into Campbell's drug store, at 40 Montgomery street, in Jersey City, the other afternoon and ordered a glass or vlchy, aays the New 1'ork Sun As he sipped it blowly he mentioned to George W Best, the clerk, that he was thinking of committing suicide Best thought he was fooling and asked: "What do jou want to do that for'" "Well, 1 piess It's about time," said the man "1 don't see much in life for me any work 1 worked last winter in a hotel in St Augustine, Fla.,and my wife is now in an insane asjluni, and two of my children have recently died Isu't that a prettj tough record.' Best, still thinking that the man was jok ing, told him that he dldu t beheu in suicide "Well, I'm going to try it, anyway," said the stranger, as he walked out He came back a few minutes later and said to Best "If you were going to com mit suicide, what method would you u&e" .Would jou drown yourself or take poibou?" The clerk answered his questiou b saj ing that he wouldn't commit suicide at nil, and advised the stranger to go away He appeared so m earnest in his intention, how e er, that Best spoke to a policeman who was outside, and asked him to keep au eye on him Hair an hour later the stranger again came into the drug store and ordered a glass of Muhy As he saw Best behind tilt- counter, he raid "Hello, tills is the same drug store I was In before " "Yes," replied Best, "and I see that you are not dead yet " TELEPHONY EXTRA OIIDIXARY. Voice "Fl o Hundred Feet From Truiis; mitterlleiirdClearhnt Other End. The test of telephones at the Interior De partment last evening showed some re markable results. The new granular-carbon microphone, designed by J. E Kcelyn, of the "Western Telephone Construction Com pany, Chicago, demonstrated the wonderful sensitiveness of the telephone. One instrument was placed near the F street entrance and connection made to the switchboard located in the basement, and hence to another telephone. A gtiitlcman then whispered into the transmitter of the first mentioned telephone. The whisper being perfectly audible. Thc,n the gentle man proceeded to move awa from the tele phone step by step, talking as he moved. He walked out from the lobby to the main cor ridor to the Seventh street corridor and along the latter until opposite the superin tendent's room, which is distant imlf the length of the building. At this point, about 300 feet distant from the telephone, his voice was plainly taken up by the instrument and transmitted to the listener at the other end of the line. The line of sound had to take the three angles or the corridors. This is the most re markable results in telephony ever effected. FORGAVE HIS WIFE. Veteran Klnushury Exhibits a Hero ism Rare Nowndnyh. William J Kingsbury, Hie old soldier who married a young lady of Anacostia early in June and two daj's later filed a suit for divorce, instructed his attorney, Mr. Campbell Carringtou, yesterday, to step proceedings.

The Bureau or Legal Advice of Tho Times, conducted by Messrs. Ralston & Siddons, went into court yesterday for the rirst time and bcored a point by winning its first suit. The plaintiff was Mrs. Lucilla E Barnes and the defendant Col! George II. Ingrshani, a clerk in tLc "War Department. Mrs. Barnes stated her case to the law yers, and they advised her to bring suit. Mrs. Barnes owned borne furniture .which she rented out to Col. Ingraham without making any sjieeific agreement as to the rent to be paid. Alter the furniture had been in ube for several months, and, as shestated, considerably damaged and worn, bhe was offered only $2 in payment ot the rent. This did not strike Mrs. Barnes as a fair consideration, bo she brought suit to recover an equitable compensation. TRIAL OF THE CASE. The case came up before Justice Taj lor jefeterday, Mr rratikhn II. Mackay ap pearing for Mr Ingraham. The testi mony of several pcrbons acquainted with the values iu &uch cases was to the effect that $20 would bc.af.iir rental There was, however, an irreconcilable dispute as to tho length of time the furniture was in use The Justice took all things into con aideratUui and ga-ve Judgment for Mrs. Barnes 'far S10 It is not known whether there will be an appeal from the Judgment ot the Jus tice. This case is only a forerunner of others to be tried at an early day. "Whether It was that jesterday was the eve of the Fourth of July, or the cases are multiplying with alarming rapidity, there was a big rush of business at the bureau jesterday. Most of them are for debts alleged to be due. small amounts to those who owe them, but considerable items to the poor creditors. THROWN OUT BY HER LANDLORD. One of the cases yesterday was that ot a colored woman, who arrived post haste to saj- that a landlord had dumped her things out in the alley where she lived. She wanted an Immediate Investigation. It was one of the cases in which hurry was of no avail. The complainant alleges that the landlord's agent actually broke into the house to effect the distress. This part of her story, it true, may make an interesting feature of the case. The Shjlock clientele Is also increasing. Quite a number bf them w 1th papers and other evidences of fraud appeared jester-daj-. but as jetjthere is nothing different in the wajs and means of doing business in these cases from the others, except in one case, which will soon come to trial. One of the Shjlock companies, it will be shown, had one of the individual Sh lock's securities and vice ersa. The poor man. when he went to the companj to liorrow money found there the deed ot trust he had given to the Shjlock solo, and when he went back t'p the latter he found the deed of trust to the company. Truly, he was between the devil and the deep blue sea, the deil singular and plural. NOT CONSdlOrS OF HIS ACTS. Daniel T. Coleman to Bo Trented for the Mqrphluo lluhlr. Daniel T Cohman, rorty jenrs of age, and a resident at No 1522 Thirtj'-seeond street, was before Judge Kimball j esterday charged with disorderly conduct. James Coleman, a son of the prisoner, appeared in court to say his father was a Ma-ve to the morphine habit, and at times he was dangerous Policeman Bradley, of the Seventh pre cinct, then stated that he knew that Mr. Coleman was addict d to morphine, and when arrested on complaint tried to hang himself in thestation tell The prisoner then went to the stand. "My case is a peculiar one," said he, half opening a pair of glassy eyes. "As jour honor probably knows, at one time I was in the Geological Sur'.ej as pho tographer and MSiled manj climes and altitudes. In time I contracted catarrh of the stomach and the phjsician in the party gave me morphine. In that way r became a victim to the drug, and at times am not conscious of what I do." Judge Kimball sent lor Sanitary Officer Trank and held a consultation with him. Mr. Coleman will he sent to a hospital to be treated. To-dny'fi Morning Programme.

WERE UNABLE TO AGRE Reported to Ilave Stood Ten to Two for Acquittal Judge Cole Charged TheiuNottoHelIeeWiIlIaiiisi:xeept When Circumstance- Corroborated Him Marlon Hrnndon Captured. Tho jury in tho case agahibt Auffort and Desmond for the burglarj-, in April, at the "Washington Steamboat Companj 's office, was locked up, disagreed at 0.30 o'clock lost night. It is expected they will cbme in at 11 o'clock this morning and poesibly be discharged, If they have not jet reached a verdict. The witness, Marion Brandon, Harry Candler's cook, w ho could not be got here for the government, is now in custodj-, and tho fact that her testimonj- will now be available will be a reason for trjing the case over again. It is understood th.it when Judge Cole came down last night the jury stood ten to two for acquittal. Auffort's mother and sister and his wife, with their three-j ear-old child, were at his side in court jesterdaj' morning, when Mr. Andrew Lipscomb began his speech for tho defense. MR. LIPSCOMB'S ARGUMENT Mr. Lipscomb referred m sarcastic terms to tho e Idence brought forward in this case by the combined detective force ofWasbing top. Some things indeed tuej had proved; for instance, they showed that a robbery had bsen committed, andthediscovenea they had made with "Billy" "Williams as pilot established bejond a doubt that Williams had a hand in the job. Nobody denied these facts. But Williams' evidence contained every essential fact alleged against Auffort and Besniond. Without it the government had nothing better to offer than the proof that Besniond lfTed at Harrj Candler's m Jack son Citj and Auifort Lad tried to get changed at Orange, where he was on a trading trip, some gold coin he had got m selling a horse here. Mr. Lipscomb dwelt at great length upon Williams' bad character, pointed out that Williams hoped to be set at liberty as tl.e price of his testimonj and aiked if it was reasonable to believe him in preference to sixteen reputable witnesres who llatlj" contradicted him. He asked the jurj- it thej' could Le a party to putting these two boj sin jailuponsuch evidence and liberating such a hardened criminal as Williams who had pro ed his own guilt in this case bej ond a doubt. To liberate the 6eir-confejsed crooki.pon histestimonj againstmenwhoare not otherwise proved guiltj would be to imperil life and property here bj- offering an easj road to escape the couseiuicnces of crime. DISTRICT ATTORNEY BIRNEY'S CLOS 1NG Mr Hirney, in closing for the govern ment, asked the jury to put aside senti meat and consider whether they believed the defendants were party to the burglary He said many of the witnesses against Williams were from Jackson City, aud some of them ery littlo lie tter than Williams herself. He defended the po lice and made good use of Mrs. William-' testimony iu support of her husband's story Judge Cole charged tho jury that they ought not to believe tho testimony of Williams except where it was corroborated by testimonj of circumstances. Thej' might convict, hoeer, ecn if they found no sufficient support of his story Ou account of the recent roersal in the Le Cointe case, by reason of his charge con cerning a reasonable doubt, Judge Cole simply told the jury that if thej had a reasonable doubt of guilt they ehould ac quit; he did not explain what constitutes a reasonable doubt. Marion Brandon, the witness wanted bj the goernment, but who eluded tlie officers for a time, was caught at Rich mond j'esterdaj', and brought hero late yesterday afternoon by Beputy Marshal Pleasanton. She spent tho night in jail and will probably be brought before Judge Cole this morning. Both "Were Looked Up. John Mundare, aged forty-one years," and Osborn Fliat, colored, aged thirteen j ears, were both arrested by Policeman Hiller, of the First precinct, yeaterday, and locked up at thestation house on cbrfrges preferred against each other. Osborn is alleged to have stolen three spoons from Mr. Mundare, and when the latter saw the colored boy on the street he proceeded to thrash him. Osborn had him arrested tor assault, and when they got to the sta tion house was himself charged with petit larceny and locked up. Writs In Lunacy I-sMied.

EAMSHAW FACTION'S SIDE It In Asserted That tho Torbert Side Ha-v o No Legal TItle'to Back Their Claims "Lade ot Klndllne. Is Com plained of Source of tho Reaction in tho Affulrn of the Purbilf. The contest between two factions of parishioners over the control of the prop erty ot St. Mark's Church, at Third and A streets northeast, will come up before Chief Justice Bingham next Monday. The answer to the suit brought bj- the Torbert faction for possession ot the church and the revenues was filed jesterday by the Earnshaw partj'. It is claimed that the plaintiffs have no legal title to be called vestrjmen or wardens, and that Mr. Torbert's records as registrar, upon which the prosecution relies, are inaccurate and unreliable, because Mr. Torbert did not takea correctviewot his duties. Mr. Torbert was registrar, it Is ad mitted, during the jear prior to last Easter Mondaj-, but did not strictly follow the rules in enrolling the sevcatj-one members whom lie enumerates as legal oters. It follows that insignificant and technical irregularities in the enrollment or other members can not be used to exclude them from their rights as voters. IT IS ESSENTIALL YPREE. As to the claim that pew renters and contributors are qualified voters, it is pointed out that St. Mark's is essentiailj a "free church." The assertion that twenty -one voters were illegally dumped jnto tho meeting which elected tho vestry now In control is igorously combatted.
