BARCLAY'S PLIGHT. A REAL, ESTATE MAN CHARGED WITH FALSE PRETENSES. Jesse *W. Woodruff Alleges that F. H. Barclay Obtained Money by False Pretenses by Means of a Mortgage. Points ol the Case. The examination of F. H. Barclay for obtaining money under false pretenses waa begun in the township court before Justice Stanton yesterday. Barclay has dealt very extensively in real estate in this locality and one of hia buaineßS transactions brought trouble upon him. He claims that he has com- nitted no offense, but hia actions in the transaction by which Jease W. Wood ruff swears he obtained money by fraud were, to say the least, very peculiar. Woodruff alieges that the defendant obtained $2,205 from him by false repre sentation. The money was obtained on a promiisory notc,naymentof which was secured by a mortgage on property at Monte Vista where Barclay owns a num ber of town lots. The mortgage ia dated early in 1890 Woodruff says he waa asked by Bar clay to loan him some money and went out to see the property he Wanted to mortgage. He drove out to Monte Viata in company with hit wife and met the defendant, who directed his atten tion to the hotel property which con tains three lota numbered 13, 14 and 15 of block 4. Woodruff thought a mort gage on the building and ground ample aecurity and advanced the amount named above, and Barclay executed a mortgage and delivered the instrument to him. Woodruff thought be had made a good investment, and supposed until recently that he held a mortgage on the hotel property, but waa completely turprieed aome few weeks ago to dis cover that he had as security for hia $2200 nt.thing more than three barren lota. The arrest* of Barclay soon fol lowed this discovery, and things look rattier blue for the young man. From the testimony of a man named Morgenhaupt it appears tbat Barclay secured a loan from him in the same manberand by meana of the aame rep reaentatioiiß a 8 in the case of Woodruff His mortgage was given on the same lots described in the mortgage given t> Woodruff, and which he supposed waa the hotel property, but afterwards found them to be in anottier block. The examination waa not concluded yester day, and will be resumed at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. ORAVE9 ON THE RACK. The Doctor Denies the Evidence of Other Witnesses In His Trl.l. Denver, Deo. 20 —In the Graves trial thia morning, Attorney Stevens- an nounced that after the examination of a letter the prosecution withdrew all ob jections to its being admitted in evi dence. This is the letter which it is claimed the doctor wrote to Mrs. Bar naby in San Francisco at tbe time she was on her way to Denver, and at about the time the fatal buttle was mailed. Its intention is to prove that the doctor thought Mrs. Barnaby was in San Fran cisco, and therefore he could not have mailed the bottle to her in Denver, if he thought she was elsewhere. Judce Forman read the letter, which explained to Mrs. Bnrnaby how to get the doctor's checks cashed and told of the death of his.brother. It was dated March 27th, and was posted at Providence, March 30th. Stevens then said lie wished the letter to go into evidence under the in structions of the court. The letter was passed from juror to juror and finally handed back to Judge Furman. The judge resumed the doctor's direct exam ination, and he denied that be told Mrs. Hickey that be engaged Dollie llanleyto spy on Mrs. Barnaby. Ile'waa in Den ver in March last with his brother's re maine. This concluded hia direct exam ination, and Mr. Stevens began his cross examination. The crofß-cxamination of Dr. Graves waa lengthy. The doctor denied nearly everything aworn to by other witnesses. Or if he did not deny that testimony, he would say he could not remember. He acknowledged he did not attempt to find out about the autoi sy or analysis of Mra. Barnaby'a remaiua when he ar rived here, notwithstanding'that he had heard she waa poisoned. Instead of thia he and a friend visited a ball game on the day of his arrival. Dr. Graces aaid he did not tell Worrell he thought the Bennet family sent tbe bottle of wliisky. He acknowledged being inter viewed by Reporter Lincoln in the Pro vidence telegraph office and said he might have told Lincoln that Mra. Bar naby had many lovers, and that some of them were vile, but lie denied hav ing paid he saw Mrs. Barnaby and Ed ward Bennett in a compromising posi tion. He acknowledged that the letter he wrote to Mrs. Barnaby in regard to putting a guardian over her, waa pis own invention, and that the executors of the' Barnaby estate knew nothing of it. The proeecntion inquired as to where $10,000 of .tfra. Barnaby'a money, supposed to have been deposited for her by Graves, was. He said hia account books had been lost, but there was no auch balance due Mra. Barnaby, and that he had accounted for every cent of her money. He denied having told James H. Conrad tbat he sent a bottle of whisky to Mrs. Barnaby. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report RoY&l Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE IN SOCIETY.

Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 26. —In the dis trict court of Lancaster county today Judge Tibbetts awarded John Fitzgerald $476 000 in his suit against the Fitz gerald-Mallory Construction company and the Missouri-Pacific Railway com pany. The case is a complicated one, and dates back some time in 1887, when the Fitzgerald & Mallory Con struction company, of which plaintiff was the head, took a contract for build ing a line of railway from Chetopa, Kan., to the Colorado line, about 150 miles, known at the time as the Denver, Mem phis and Atlantic railway.

FONSECA'S FATE. President Peixotto Heaps Coals of Fire on His Head. Rio de Janeiro, Dec. 26.—The fallen dictator haa been treated with the ut most consideration by President Peix otto, who, in a manifeato juat issued, warmly praises "Fonaeca's abnegation and patriotism in spontaneously resign ing the presidency to avoid strife be tween brethren, the shedding of Bra zilian blood and a collision between comrades in arms," and says: "The generous factors of the immortal move ment of November 15th are destined to defend the nnited or national honor and the integrity of our country against for eign aggreßaion, and to maintain inter nal order and republican institutions." The printing offices of two journals that supported General Deodoro's adminis tration, were destroyed Wednesday by a mob. This is the only circumstance that has tarnished the victory of the Constitutionalists. This victory seems to eratify every one except the adher ents of the dictator. General Peixotto, who being vice-president, has ex-officio become president of the republic, holds office only until a president can be elected.

It was so when Gambetta died at 5 in the morning. At midnight he was pro-J nounced convalescent. The death watch; of reporters was relaxed. Yet one ofj them, a Frenchman, member of a email Parisian news agency, came out of a wine, shop at early morning and saw a maid] servant running across the grass. ■ "The master is dead," she called to him. He stood there in great perplexity.! To whom should he sell the news? He, hesitated between the Paris, London; and New York papers. He finally cabled ( thus, "Gambetta died at 5 this morn-J ing." The dispatch reached a New York office at ten minutes before 2, there 1 being five hours difference between Paris and New York.
