THE ARGUMENTS WERE MADE At YcMtnUy'i Ntiilou, ?uil the Jury will Probably h* Charged Ibli Morning. Ooorgo WillUint, Accnard of Conutrifelting >1 BelUlrr, wm OlKb?r|?l by the Kqmlr* AfUrthe llwrlUR VwUrtlay Aftcruuou ?Oihrr Cunrt Doing** Th?t trial of Joseph Jucnk, of the South Side, charged with attempted burglary at the saloon of Frank Ayers. at the corner of Chapline and Thirty-first streets, is nearing Ha conclusion la the criminal court, Judge Hugus. I^ite yesterday afternoon. the attorneys, Mr. Sommervllle fop the state and Colonel Arneti for the accused, were making their arguments, and it ww thought the case would go to the Jury before the day'a session had ended, but the argument* lasted longer than waa expected and the case waa continued until I thla morning, when the Jury will be charged and u verdict probably reached before long. There has been great interest In this 1 caao through the connection of Juenk with the robbery of the Maxwell house on South Market atreet, for which he waa convicted In his first trial, but acquitted in the second. The Jury la compoaed of the following: Louis C. Ilartman. Charles A. Helmbrecht, F. C. A. Frederick. William Hess. O. A. Beuter. W. J. Duval. Jacob Lash, Jr., C. H. Sem?*ney. Thomas J. Hail, Seaton Aiexunder. Thomaa Clark. Q. W. Wor la. The first witness of the uay was Frank Ay ere. the prosecuting witness, whose story was In substance that which he told at the recent preliminary hearing. First, about 1 a. m.. witness had heard a noise at the rear of (he house, and at 5 a- m. the knob of the door was turned. Then he had gone out to investigate and had seen a man Jump over the rear fence. Running out to the front of the saloon Ayers had run Into Juenk. who was fly irk in me otner direction. Wltntti had dragged Juenk into the saloon where ho resisted. Finally he was released and later In the morning was arrested. In the afternoon Juenk was put on the stand In his own defense and was followed by Mrs. Juenk. who testified that her husband had been at home on the night of the robbery until 5:30 a. m. Other witnesses were examined, but very little new testimony waa brought out. At 4:30 o'clock In the afternoon the testimony was all In ami Mr. Sommervllle opened for the state. He raid It was true no eye had seen Juenk attempting to effect an entrance to Ayers' place, but that Is not necessary. A rale of evidence is 1 that all testimony that goe* to satisfy the mind Is allowable. It had not been denied that somebody was at the side door trying to get Inside. Ayres saw a man | jumping over the fence. Whoever that man was he was not on an errand of mercy. He was attempting a theft. The | fact of his flight Shows that conclusively, j The question is to show who thl? man | was. Ayres took steps to satisfy himself on thla p??lnt. He ran out on the street and ran into the accused who was run| nlng away. Juenk had fa Id he waa In I the vicinity at this early hour In order to I uppl.v at the Wheeling pottery for work. ' But the foreman. Mr. Mnchlm. testified that he had told Joenk there was no Job for him. Then there were the rubber shoes Juenk was wearing; th? wearing of these shoe* on a warm and dry morning ha? not been satisfactorily explained. These and other facts have woven a web around the defendant that should convict. Colonel Amett. for the defense, followed. He said Juenk had been unfortunate enough to become suspected through no fault of his own. But these unfounded sutpiclons should not operate In the minds of the Jury In considering this cue. Continuing* the oolonel said no man can say that there la not a reasonable doubt In the guilt of Juenk. He ridiculed the theory that Juenk loitered about the Ayres place from 1 a. m. to 6 a. m.. doing nothing. There had been no testimony to prove there was an attempt at robbery. Juenk. in fact, had not been connected with the affair. Juenk's action In running in front of the saloon was cited as anything hut the route a thief would have pursued. The only baslti for Juenk's arrest was that he had been in trouble before. At 5:30 p. m. court adjourned until & o'clock this morning, when consideration of the Juenk case will be resumed. THE COUNTERFEITING CASE OMrgt Wllllama wn DlamlMcd by Squirt M??on Yrilrrrfajr, The preliminary hearing of George W. Williams, the old man charged by Bob Mason, the notorious counterfeiter, with having made counterfeit money, took place before Squire Mason, In Bellalre, yesterday. The bleached and blanched Bob was brought down from Hteubenvllle to give testimony agalnM Williams, and there were about fifteen other witnesses?one, they said, didn't come because he was Implicated In such a way that he feared arrest. A girl whose appearance would Indicate that she was quite a child In '83, testified that at that lime she saw Williams give a peddler some good money and some nan money ana .icia mm now to arrange It In his pockets, keeping the good money In the pocket on the right wide nnd the counterfeit in the left han?j pocket, nnd to only use the counterfeit In making change. She told this with as much detail ns if It had occurred only yesterday morning. Some of IV other witnesses told of circumstance* that looked auspicious along In th*? early eighties, but there was an absence of testimony as to recent events, except what the notorious Boh Mason gave. R. G. McGaughey. who made the affidavit upon which the warrant for Williams' arrest was issued, conducted the prosecution. J. B. Smith, asslted l?y R. G. Campbell and Elijah Kennedy, looked after the defense. One of the McMurray Brothers, who keep a a tore near where Williams Uvea, was up and gives the old man a fair reputation never having Been any sign of his being crooked, ami other persons of respectaMllty from that section sustained the old man's reputation They had known him a long time and had never known him to be crooked, and one of them went ho far as to Huurantee the fee for another attorney, if It ahould be found necessary, to acquit the old mat). The ease was long drawn out nnd while they had some testimony to mistain a case for possible offense In 18S3. or about that time, the matter was y< complicated that It is not oerta'... whether the squire will hold the accused or not. At the conclusion of the testimony last rrlght. the juatire oiflmiKwn uninmp, the evidence not being downed sufficient to hold the mnn. Carnival ??r DbiivIiis, On<? hundred pupil* of th*?

Uhflbi'i Japan*** Troupa at Wtiaallaff Park taatua. Oka bp's Imperial Japanese troupe made another pronounced hit at the Wheeling Pork Casino bat night, ami the performance was applauded to the echo by the gond-alzed crowd thot was present. The feats performed by these Yankees of the eost are little short of marvelous, and every act was truly wonderful. In costumes novel and curious, from the land of the Mikado, the company presented a most attractive appearance and held the attention of every one who was there. The tallen: features of the entertainment were the break ladder and shoulder net of Mis* Bute and Master Matsu. the "grand slide for life." by Mr. Okabe: "the principal act," by Mr. Okabe and Master Matsu. the contortion act by Mls.? Jlro, the triple ladder performance, by Mr. Nujfaso and Master Matsu. and the floor acrobatic act by Miss Fuku. end Masters Matsu and Taka. While all of the programme u superb,these art? picked out for apodal mention. It will be noticed that Master Matsu figures largely in all these. He is really a most unurual little fellow, and althouwh only seven years old, he enters into his parts with all the zest of an older performer, and u pleased smile overspreads his queer yellotv-face all the time. He looks at times. when for instance, he is glued cross-legged to * balancing pole like a little Japanese idol, lie seem* absolutely without bones and without fear and Ills the centre of attraction In every act In which he take." part. The company j deserves crowded houses at every performance. This afternoon a free inatlnee will be given f?>r ladies and chlldren on the arrival of the 2 o'clock mo-1 tor. at 2:45. and to-night the regular performance will take place, the, theat- I rlcal special leaving the station at 7:30 I o'clock. The prices are very luw. 15 c-nts for adults and 10 cents for chll- I dren. One cannot afford to miss th? treat offered. The park Is now In most glorious attractiveness and electric lights blaze everywhere. So go out tonight. You will like it.

When a gentleman possessing the reputation and the experience of Mr. I R. M. Smith, of No. 2132 Market street, a gentleman who has not and never had any monetary interest in any preparation, comes out boldly and declares that preparation "acted promptly and brought positive relief," It ought to stagger the skeptic and non-plus the doubter when they cavil over the claim* made for or discuss the merits of Doan's Kidney Pills. Mr. Smith has no earthly object In giving publicity to his K,.# nnA lha tn llo his fellow men n service who suffer from any derangement of the kidneys. He Is very brief, but at the same time pointed in hit statement. Read It. He says: "I hud back ache on and off for the past six years, and It grew worse iteadlly. The trouble I thlnlc was first brought on by a fall I had while working a: my trade as a carpenter, and a slight cold or the least exposure always produced an attack. In time secretions from the kidneys became irregular, and i suffered a great deal from long spells of dlxxiness, so bad often when walking on the street I would nearly fall over. I used porous plasters, but as they did me no good, gave up their use. I have also used a great deal of different kinds of medicine but the relief. If any, was only temporary. When I saw Doan's Kidney Pills advertised I was so bad I could not walk up town after them, to I took a car to the Logan Drtig Co.'s store and got a box. I never had anything act so promptly or do me audi positive relief as did Doan's Kidney Pills and I can conscientiously recommend them as the very best remedy I have ever found for any form of kidney trouble."
