in view; that the comparison is of bIx busintsss(lay8

3Ck\v Youk, September 18.?Captain Gunner
and Dctcctivo Campbell, ot tho Fifty*
ninth Street Pollco Station, went before
Justice Powers, at Police headquarters, last
night, with James II. Elliott, a lawyer of
No. 51 William street, who lives in the
Uijiveraitylhiilding.iK'AVftHhinjjton Square,
that lie might obtain bull on the charge of
having broken into the house of Emmeline
Laurent, No. 50 East'' Severity-ninth
street, on Friday night, and having stolen a
transfer deed of property, wortli $20,000 and
other valuable papers. Captain Gunner
staled that on SVttirday about half past 7
o'clock he was summoned, to the house of
llcnjamiu S. Clark, at No. 5S Dust Seventyninth
street, on an urgent matter, lie
went to the place witli Dctcctivo Cumpbell,
and was told by Mr. Clark that on Saturduy
morning Jamoa,II;;Klliott, during his
own ubsence from home, bad passed
through liis house into tho back yard; had
crossed to the rear of Madaxno Laurent's
house, had entered'this at tho Becond
floor, had remained Micro for two hours,
and bad then gone away. Mr. Clark was
anxious that ttieplace should be searched,
us he had seen noon'e go from kthe bouse
since that time, and he did not know but
what the occupant was dead.
G'apt. Gunner, with Detective Campbell
and Mr. Clark, then entered Madame
Laurent's house from tho rear by means of
tlin niiffiiwl (lnn? .. : I

All tlio doors of (ho buifdmg'wero blocked.
They went from room to room, from the
cellar up, until they reached u door on.the
second llo'orrear, which was lockoil. On
breaking this open, the Captaiu found that
he had entered Madame Laurent's bedroom.
She lay in bed in un apparently
unconscious condition. She appeared to
be a woman about thirty 'years .of age, .a
brunette, of slender form, and of handsome
face. The Captain attempted to rouse her,
and succeeded after several attempts. The
woman, for a few moments, seemed in a
dazed condition,; but at; length regained
power of speech enough to lell the Captain
her story.
Madame Laurent said that on Wednesday
morning she had locked up her house,
fastened herself in her room, and had then
Kone to bed with the intent ion of starving
herself to death. "I was tired of liviifg,
and desired only to die,", said she. She
sent away her only servant 011 Wednesday
morning] and then began the process of
starvation. She remained in bed until Saturday
morniug, having eaten nothing. '.In ,
the forenoon of that day Madame taurent
Jay in a semi unconscious eonditiou, when
she wasaroused by the uppearance of a men
inside the rear window of her room,
which ho had evidently just entered.
She was startled, but "was too weak
to crv out. SI11* thoti
the intruder us James II. ^Elliot, a lawyer,
whom she knew. He . bad been1.at her
house on the Tuesday evening before with
Elliott Smith, n lawyer, who Las-rooms at
the University building, and an ollice at
No. 59 \Vall street. Madame Laurent had
been living with Smith ami his wife for
over a year, and since May < 1 at So. 56
East Seventy-seventh street- She was too
weak to speak above a whisper, and Elliott
approached her bedside, when she said: UI
am goiug.to die; I desire to live no longer;
when l am dead send my body to "Franco
for burioLL' ;
Elliott declined to do this, and then
added, "If yon wish to die you can; it is an
easy matter,only, a question of a minute or
two." Finding that Elliott would not acccdo
to her request, she then pointed'to a
pet cat which was in-the room, and asked
him to take care of it, which.l^lliott promised
to do. Elliott* ilien nroceoded toexamine
Madame I,aurent8 legal papers,
which; were scattered about the room. She
was too weak to make any opposition,
and Elliott prosecuted his search at
his leisure. After: reimiiuing some
two hours, the lawyer departed,
taking a transfer, deed of certain
property in Twentieth street made out in
the name of Elliott Smith to Emeline Lailrent,
which was valued at $20,000. Madame
Daurentsaid she had purchased this property,
paying $20,000 for it, in Smith's name,
under what inducements ehe'did not say.
Smith in return had drawn tip this document
for the nominal transfer of property
to her. This nanor Elliott. ??L-on fr
had bcendrawn up by'him nud by Smith, ,
who was his cousiu. Madame Laurent
claimed that Elliott had taken other papers 1
also, lie carried away the pet cat m a
basket. - .
; After obtaining the woman's story Cupt.
Guunersent for au ambulance and surgeon
at the Presbyterian Hospital. The latter
on his arrival finally induced Madame
Laurent to take foine nourishment, and
theu advised, in accordance#with her wish,
that she be left at her home. Capt. Gunner
and Detective Cumpbi'U .were unable
to find either Elliott or Smith on Saturday
night. They did not leave Madame lament's
house until nearly? midnight.
This inoruing they went to;the.University
building and arrested Elliott
lie acknowledged having gone to the
house, and having taken tliu-trai:afcr deed,
and admitted that he probably had done
wrong in entering the building, and securing
the paper as he did. The document
and the patent were found in his pocket.
Smith war not, to, be found. Mr. Elliott
stated that his cousin had "been out of the
city for-6cveral days.

ille at her home in Sharon llilljast night E
11 regard to Melville's desertion of his fain- ^
v. He left the house Saturday night t
Her the reception, and has not been seen ^
ince. According to Mrs. Melville's story j
lie received her husband warmly, as did j,
ie children, but his treatment of them all v
:as very cool. She bore it all patiently 8
ntil tho reception was ever. When re* t
ring time canic ho asked where his room t
as,and upon Iter informing him that there t
;as only one room and ''this was-it," ho
lid, "I'll be d?d if it is," and Btarted 3
own stairs, taking a pillow with him. 3
he then commenced to turn oil' tlie gas, ^
rhen he with an oath aud curse, exclaim- t
d: "Turn out those lights." This was too g
lucli and she upbraided him severely for j,
is harsh treatment. At this he seized his j
at and left the house, saying lie would ^
nd the matter for all time. Miss Maud,
:ie eldest daughter, corroborates her moth- j
r in this statement, as docs also Mead, a 1!
ounger child. Mrs. Melville sayB she |,,
?ars an attempt will be made to take the j
hildren frojii her, but she will guard q
gainst it in every way. She is completely Vi

Another dispatch savs: "The report of s
tie outrapeous treatment of his wife by En- ,|
ineer Mellville is denied bv his friends. p
l is asserted that Melville fins borne pa- {|
ieutly with the eccentricities of his wife n
)r a longtime, and that the reason of his ,|
isappearance was tbat his wife was drunk c
aturilay. Iu an interview, while speak- j|
ng of Melville's return home, Mrs. Mel- c
ille is credited with making the following j
tatement: I do not want him to; lie left e
io in a most heartless manner, and I j,
ever wapt to sec him again. Ob, this is a
30 terrible, but I never want to sec him
gain. I have heen a true wife to him ever |t

ly children, too. I'll work my fingers j.

ad Henry E. Knox. Doreey has wi

larfield.to suppose that he "was using up
is valuable time and his precious ink and Fc

Jent of the United States out of puro and dL
nadulterated love. Dorsey is all love. It he
oes not necessarily lollow that lie \V

i'y. In this particular case there is W
unehow or other a curious coincidence
etween Dorsey'a interests ami Doraev's
dvice. Mr. S. J. Tilden had had in his
ossession for some time before Dorsey ^
ame to Garfield's assistance with counsel
3 precious as it was pure and free, all the ,
icts about the Star-route swindlo which f
ave been sensationally developed at the- c
trical intervals. D*.

MacLean is the law partner of Mr.
