The hearing in tho Chinese perjury cases -was resumed in the police court berore Judge Scott yesterday. Judge Miller testified to certain facts brought out before him in the trial of Moy F. Chew for shooting Ah Sing, and Assistant District Attorney l'ugh gave evidence that he "would not believe Miranda Shaw and Annie Brooks under oath.. Sue Gow v"H placed on tho stand and through his interpreter said that he had tesUfied that tho thot "was fired by Moy Chew from under tho tree directly in front of the house, and not from the tree in dicated by the photograph. Mr. Sterling contradicted tho testimony of the boy FraukHamilton.and the husband of Mary Crown -was next examined. Judge Scott, after listening to-arguroents by Messrs.

ALL BONES WERE BEOKEN Ho" Bounced trom Girder to Girder lu Ills Awful Descent Found Lying Acres n Benin A Plunk Ho "Was IVulklng on Broke In Two Oao of Jinny Accident. Auother fatal accident occurred at the city post-office building, iu course of con struction on Pennsylvania avenue, between Eleventh and Twelfth streets, at 2:45 o'clockyestcrdayaf ternoon. Charles Beach, an iron worker, and a citizen of Baltimore, lell from tbesoveuth story of the struclure aud was dashed todeath across an ironhcam ou the first floor.. His body Js now in the morgue awaiting the action of Coroner ilauitnelt. There were several men workiug about Becau' wheu Uio accident occurred. It ap pears that he btaried to wa lie across a plank which exteuded from one beam to auother in tiie northeast corner of the structure, when "With a loud cracking report it broke in 1 wn at its very center. Walter Fisher, a brother iron worker, who was. nearest to theuuforiunate man, saw him as ho went Whirling down to his death. "Great God!" exclaimed Fu-Jier, "there goes Beach, and he's- killed." The other workmen on the beveulh story near the Pennsylvania avenue and Eleventh htrcer- corner were William Keys, Daniel Bensou aud Isaac Lamford. They heard Waller Fisher's cry, and looking down ward, saw Beach 111 his awful descent. As be went down he turned over and over, his body liounding from otic iron beam or girder to auother, until the first floor was reached. There he hung limp and Iifelebs -over oue of the red-paiuted girders. TURNED SOMERSAULTS. In striking the 'beams Mil the descent to his death every boneL Beach's body was broken, his skull crushed, his chip nearly rut off, several ghastly wounds niade in the head, from which blood spurteu 4" miniature torrents. The first man to reach Beach was a workman named Mc Key. Ue found him doubled across the !.ain. blood pouring from his irouth and the awful gashes 0:1 the head. ttome one tet up a ihout aud tbe other workmen flockifd about the corpse aud lowered it Irciu the girder. The effects of the terrible buffetiug tbe body Lad re ceived by being dashed against the nu merous beani in as wlurlirg clef cent, could then be plainly seen. It was as limp as a rag and the almost pulverized bones ground together and rattled as the corpse was stretched upon a board aud removed from the interior of tho building to the yard. Bench struck the last beam equun-ly ou his stomach, aud hud it not been that the force of tSc deceeni had beeu broken by tho intervening girders, he would no doubt have been cut in two. A hurry call was tent to the Emergency Hospital and the Firtt precinct station, Just around the corner of Twelfth street. When the patrol wagon, 111 charge of Policeman Sprinkle and Samuel Cook ar rived, it wa. found that the Emergency ambulance was i.ot needed, aud it was turned back. Sprinkle conveyed the body to the morgue, where it presented a gory appearance as it lay upon the cooling board. Asfcoon as possible after the accident Mr. J. W. Kiu-ey, superintendent of the new pos-loflice building tent a telegram to the fatherofthe dead man, Richard Beach, who lives at No. 801 Remington avenue, Bal timore, announcing the .sid occurrence, and asking what disposition should be madeof the remains. Deceased was about twenty-three ycar& of age, and unmarried. Ills grandmother resides in this city, but he has few acquaintances here, lie had been working on the building leas than four weeks. Superintendent Kinsey saw Beach in his descent from the dizzy height. Ue said the man was turning somersaults in the air, and crashing from one beam to another. The sight was too much for him, and he turned his head away before the body reached the first floor. MANY FATAL. ACCIDENTS. The new postoffJce building has already received a pretty thorough baptism in blood. The first accident occurred on October D, 1804, when John P. Quill, a painter, fell from the (second floor to the basement, breaking his left leg. The second accident, two months later, was a fatal one. A three-ton stone fell upon and crushed the life out of Peter Nelson while he was at work in the tower. On December G, 1894, William Fielder fell from a scaffold on the third floor to the basement, and was so badly injured that he died soon thereafter. A. few weeks later a colored man foil from the second story to Uie basement. He struck head foremost on a heavy timber. The man was only stunned, and resumed work on the building the same day. On October 8, 1894, S. W. Cook, an Iron worker who was subject to vertigo, fell from the third floor to the basement. This was at 10 o'clock a. m., and the injured man was hurried to the Emergency Hos pital. There it was found that his only ap parent injury was a blue mark about bis left temple. After the noon hour he re turned to the building and wanted to go to work. He was told to return to the hos pital, lie did so, and growing worse, died in great agony at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Coroner Hammett viewed the remains of Mr. Beach at the morgue about 0 o'clock last evening. Ho will carefully investi gate the circumstances attending tho ac cident this forenoon.

Meanwhile the people who know keep us busy selling to them all da'. Cor. 7th and E Sts. H. W. No Branch Store in This Citv. &gmmEmMEm3m&& tragedy might not have occurred. An officer of the police force heard a group of them talking over the arralr shortly after it happened, and the government and the contractors came in for a large share of condemnation. The officer said that they were agreed that tho lives of the workmen depend entirely on their own avoidance of always immineut danger, and some of them said that unless the government would take official notice of the ca6e in point they would quit the work. The Times looked up one of the most intelligent of the ironworkers and had a talk with him on the subject. The worK man said that he had tx-cn engaged on many buildings in the United States, and that wherever he was it was the imperative rule that in-all buildings the floors should be built In. either finally or temporarily, to within two stories of the point where the men were working at any time. In some Stales, he said, and especially in Ohio, this arrangement was made a matter of stringent legislation, and a failure to comply was punishable with a fine It was the rule and tho law in Chicago and elsewhere, but he had not noticed Hint the United States had any such regulation -T-hv w !Ujr"ry 111 Washington, he said, was perhnp an exception to the custom of the government. He had worked on Hint building, and its condition was always safe for tho artisans They kept the arches for the flooring and the flooring itself up to within two stories of where the men were at work. Such being the case, he said, the contrac tors. Iwing bound by no law, did Just what thy pleased and let the work lie done lu the most penlousmannerand perhaps caring nothing for the deatli of a percentage of tho men engaged in the work. "I have this to suggest," he continued. "There might be more inconvenience in putting in floors on tho sixth and seventh floors, but there is not the slightest reason why the fifth floor should not le covered over with boards at once. If the contrac tors will not do it, then let the govern ment have it done and ded.ict the cost from tho compensation of the contractors." "I hope that Tiie Times will make this point Btrong, so that the government may s?e it and interest itself in our behalf. I make It now as an appeal to the government through Tho Times."

HUMAN LIFE NOT VALUED Government Contractors Reckless as to Their Employes' Safety, Charles Ueach's Death If a Flooring AVoro Laid the Accident Could .Not Have Happened. One of the most expert steeple climbers in this section of the country has made an examination into the causes which led up to the death of Charles Beach, who fell from the seventh story of tho new city post-office building yesterday afternoon, lie found that the Ironworkers on that structure iiave no flooring to work upon, but are compelled to climb alwut and lift heavy weights at a height of nearly 200 feet from the ground on narrow iron girders five feet apart and freshly painted. Thts. he said, was almost criminal. "The seventh floor ts finibhed, so far as tho ironworkers are concerned," said the man who climbs steeples, "and should lie floonM temporarily with heavy two inch plank The Umber jius employed could be otherwise used in the construc tion of the building. The only expense, therefore, would be the time of n few laborers in laying the flooring. The awful price, so far, of not doing this has been several precious lives. "However, we cnuiiGt;7""'.CLr afc t!l5a when -weconslder how the average govern ment contractor gtrugglei and schemes, to save money wherever ho can, in order that his total profits on a job Minll be so much greater. Labor and material cost him money. Human iirecosts him nothing. If the contractors on the new city postorfice were to employ the time oC a few laborers several hours each day inlaying this floor ing, it would save life and limb, but would cose them a few dollars. On the other hand, should a dozen men fall to their death from the top of the high structure,' the cost to them would be nothing only an other human flame gone ouL Iron, lime, mortar or stone are reckoned in his esti mates.

Then liefore he could rollover and complete his downward journey to the basemont and his death, he was seized and held by a fellow-workman. His injury was a broken hip, and he is now an inmate of the poor ward In Providence Hospital. "Tho men on the postoffice have to pos sess agility as well as strength. They work all day on four-inch girders, five feet apart. Standing on these insecure perches the .workmen are compelled to handle great iron teams and girders weighing from hundreds of pounds to several tons, with only the sky above them and the concreted basement, nearly 200 feet below. "Tho postofiice is a government building and adequate means to prevent the loss of life should beadopted. On private workthe contractors are more humane and lay floor ing for tho iron and other workers.

HE WAS ITS CONDUCTOR Hud Failed to Tnsten the Lever Se curely When He Stepped Out Ite turnliis, Tie Jumped on the MhcIiIiio "Which Shot Tip with. Him and Jammed Him Against tho Girder. A painful accident, resulting in the almost instant death of Martin Murphy , an elevator conductor, took place in the basement of the Btnte, War, and Navy Building, on the Seventeenth street side about 3:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Murphy was caughtbetweentncedgeoftheelefltor floor and the girder of the ceiling above, and life was literally crushed out of him. The elevator is one run by hydraulic pres sure and is worked by a lever, instead of the usual cable. When Murphy lowered the elevator to the basement flour, he threw the lever back, but neglected to see that it caught firmly. He stepped out for a moment, leaving tho door opec, and la some way the handle of the lever worked back, for on his return he saw that the ele vator was alwut two feet above the floor and ascending. Thinking hecouldget in in time to stop it, he ran and attempted to jump in. The machine had attained too great a height, however, and he landed about half way in the elevator, the pit of his stomach resting on the edge of the floor, and his linib-s hang ing out. BROKE HIS BACK. In a twinkling the huge machine shot up until the unfortunate man's back struck the iron girder running across the top of the door, a short distance from the ceiling. The force was so great that it must have rendered him unconscious immediately, for he never even uttered a groan. Jack Heustey, a young workman tempo rarily employed in the building, came by a few seconds after the accident, and happen ing to glance up he saw Murphy's legs and purt of his body hanging over the elevator floor. The position looked so natural that he at first thought the conductor was at work in that position, but on closer inspec Uou he ascertained that the man was stuck fast, and he seized his feet and tried to pull him down. He was unable to do so, however, and a couple of colored laborers, horrified at the fearful position of the man and his significant silence, rushed upstairs, and getting on the elevator jumped up and down trying to force it down a short distance. They were unable to move it, however, and not until the engineer was notified and worked the elevator down by the machinery could the unfortunate conduc tor be extricated from his fearful position. When laid on the floor he was barely alive and did not survive more than two minutes. Medical aid was unable to restore him, and the police and coroner wereuotificd. NO INQUEST NECESSARY. The ambulance responded immediately, but it was not deemed advisable to remove the body until the coroner had viewed it. About half an hour later Coroner Hammett arrived and Investigated the matter, ex amining all who knew auything of the affair. There was nothing to show that it was the result of carelessness on the part of anyone but Murphy himself, so Dr. Ham mett decided that it would be unnecessary to hold an inquest. The body was re moved to his late home, and a certificate of accidental death will be issued by the coroner to-day. Murphy was thirty-five years old, and has resided with his wiro and family at No. 420 L street northwest. He has been employed at Uie department a considerable length of time, and was generally well liked. His tragic death was a source of grief to mauy of the clerks and other employes of Uie department, and his wife was completely prostrated wheu she was informed of Uie disaster. Noue of the bones in the body was broken by the vice-like grip iu which it was caught, but the fleshy part was crushed and bruised terribly, his life being literally squeezed out of him.

There Is much speculation as to Presi dent Cleveland's choice for the- United States Supreme Court bench to succeed the late Justice Jackson, but beyond the mention of available names there is little of a definate nature thus early. It Is the general understanding that no appointment will be mada until after the meeting of Congress, as Uie placets one of too much importance and dignity for a re cess aopolutee to go on the bench and take the chances of subsequent rejection by the Senate. It Is suggested that tho selection is most likely to be made from the east, and prob ably from New l'ork.asMr. Cleveland made the last appointment that of Justice White from the south, after the Senate had re jected Uie names of Hornblower and Peck ham, both of New York. As is usual when an important place is to i filled the rame of Sc " .rhsle is mentioned, but tbe general opiuion is that, should Mr. Cleveland go to his Cabi net for an appointee, he is more hkely to consider Mr. Wilson orMr. Smith. The name of Representative Josiah Pat terson, of Tennessee, will probably be called to the attention of the President, as he comes from the State of the late Justice and is known as a most loyal friend of Mr. Cleveland. Tbe names of Don M. Dickinson and Solicitor General Holmes Conrad are aUx mentioned. Justice Jackeon's family wus jesterday advised of the departure of Chief Justice Fuller and Associate Justice Brewer, who had been visiting the Chief Justice, from Sorrento for Memphis to attend the funeral. No responses have been received from any of the other justices, although it is supposed that Justice "White, who is in "Washington, and Justice Brown, who is in Jamestown, R I., will also attend. There will be nothing official in the arrangements, it being the practice of the court not to invest the funeral of a deceased member who dies during recess with any official formality. Mr Frederick E. Chnpiu, private sec retary of Justice Jackson, left "Washington last night to attend the obsequies. Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 9. The hour for the funeral of Justice Jackson has been fixed at 10:30 o'clock Monday morning. It was at first intended to have the funeral Sunday, but a delay was determined upon in order to give Chief Justice Fuller and the other members of the Supreme Court time to reach here.

Mayor Delmargo, of Spring Yatley, has just aaneuneed that to-night he will increase the police, even over its present proportions, and will makeeve ry effort hcoanto see thatrberfc.u do not break out afresh. All day to-day the roads between Spring Valley and Seatonville have been trav eled by teams hauling back the household goods that were taken away the few days following the nwrderous riots of Sunday. States Attorney W A. Johnson js in Spring Valley to-day, but as yet nothing has been decided upon in regard to making arrests of the lawbreakers. It Is dou btf ull f any a rrests a re made .and in this case the citizens will be as restless as ever. This afternoon 430 men are at work in No. 3 shaft, part of whom are, colored people.

Barney Rollo. the Italian who was held up on the highway Sunday meroing and shot three times, died to-night. It was this crime charged to the negroes whlt-b led to the murderous attack n the race; The funeral will be held Sunday and will be sure to be largely attended. The extra police force of white men was put oh by the mayor at the request of the merchants, but It was really a farce. The business men demanded the increase ef the force in order to protect their stores fmra mob violence. The mayor said all right, and at once named the business men. who had made the request. Among them was Manager Dalzell and the entire clerical force of the Spring Valley Coal Company, who have pressing work to attend to now. These men, how ever, turned the tables oa the mayor by demaiiduig firearms as officers of the law. The mayor then said they should re turn to their places of baslnes and. when he was ready for them he woold lei them know. A. prominent business- man remarked before tbe meeting broke up: "Now, Mr. Mayor, we are ready to servo in any emergency when you call upon us as you say you will, bat we want ypa toun derstand. that we expect you to lead ns m such emergency, for we know that we will then be at a safe distance and fretr from harm." COLORED MEN ARMED. The ten colored men who were appointed have armed themselves mostly with horse pistols, which are considered sufficient to protect the colored settlement, provided, they keep together. Among the business men of Spring Val ley there is much apprehension over the situation to-night, and a neting- was held to take some concerted action which has been kept secret. Tbe committee of colored peolpe from Chicago arrived at SeatouvtUe during: the da y, and after investigating the trouble there drove to Spring Valley to learn more. The whistles sounded to-night for work to-morrow, and uuless trouble is caused by the news of the death of Rollo about 1,000 tne nwill go to work iu tbe mines. Represent aive Buckiier, of Chicago, ia still in the city, and says he will remain there until saticfied the colored people are going to be protected in their rights. Nothing has been done in the way oC making arrests for the Italian outrages or the murder of Rollo. Death of Photographer Merrltt. Information was received here yesterday of the death of John D.
