Washington, January 26.?Although badly beaten by several man as he was leaving the Rockville courthouse yesterday, and bearing other marks of. their violence besides a broken nose, R. C. ii Moncure, a prominent attor? ney and member of the Muiicure fam? ily of Virginia, is not. as was at llrst feared. In a dangerous condition, and there is hope that his left eye, which was kicked, is not permanently in? jured. Or. II. Clifton King, of H'.'J K Srisset northwest, to whose bouse Mr. Moncure was taken b^; his brother Frank after the assault, said he had he ad by phone to-day from Dr. W. T. Moncure, of Fair-, fax, Va., Mr. Moncure's father, who is in ! attendance upon his son, that trie lat- 1 ter's condition is fairly good, and he expected that later in the day Mr. j Moncure wfculd be able to come to this i city tot a further examination of his eye. j Dr. King said there was a very bad j blood bruise on the cheek none near the left eye, no" he haS found a reason ! able amount of vision in the eye, and ! he was hopeful that careful treat? ment would bring it ?round all j right. Mr. Moncure's f;;ce bears (marks and abrasions as the re [: tilts of the kicks he had received. His j body, near the ribs, war. badly bruised, ! and his knee injured, said Or. King, I but a superticial examination failed to ; show an I broken bones, except in the ! nose. Mr. Moncure, he said, told him ! he was set upon by five men, three of j whom he knew, while on his way from the courthouse to the hotel to get his valise, and he was badly kicked after being knocked down. Attacked In Front of Court. The assault occurred in front of the courthouse. Sheriff Viett, of Montgom? ery county, placed Peyton Whalen, his chief deputy; Joseph Whalen, the lat ter's brother, and Joshua T. Offutt under arrest on charges of assault. They were taken at the time before Justice Reading, of Rockville, whose mother was then dying, and has since died, and he, knowing the parties and not realizing the seriousness of the assault, it is said, released them on j their personal recognizances. The assault, it is alleged, grew out I of developments during the day in the I Rockville Circuit Court, during a hear? ing in the suit to break the will of j Franklin I. Offutt, Mr. Moncure beirg one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs. Mr. Moncure is said to have asked Jos? eph Whalen during the hearing if. dur? ing the day. he had not made a certain flaTtqxj/zese, ore (to o~dBiscuits * Good biscuits are largely de? pendent upon good Baking Powder.

Special Suit and Fur Values 'at Baylor-Yarborough Co.'s, 207 East Broad Street DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION FAILED? THE GREAT KIDNEY REMEDY PROVES ITS MERIT. Il gives mc great pleasure to .-; iy a good word for Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root be? cause it has cured mc of a severe case of Kidney Trouble. I had suffered for sonic five years with this trouble, and more especially f?r the first three mouths of 1909. Physicians prescribed for mc, inn with? out much success, and any relief obtained was only temporary. I hud severe pains | in my back, and at no time was I free of ! pain. When I stooped down it was with j some difficulty that I could straighten my body again. ? I could not lift any j weight of consequence without great pain. ! I would be compelled to arise and give the ! bladder relief. A friend oi mine advised mc to take Swamp-Root, whereupon I wrote to Dr. Kilmer for a sample bottle, which ..so benefited mc that. I was led to believe it would be a great help to mc. Accordingly I purchased two bottles of Swamp-Root from Mr. A. P. Perry, my I druggist, and the effect has been truly j marvelous. I I feel like a new man, and have every j reason to believe that I am cured, and j that no other medicine could have accom ? plished so much. Now 1 can raise a heavy load, can bend my back over my desk all I day, and feel none the worse for it. In j view of the foregoing facts I sincerely , trust that this testimonial may reach j some of those who are suffering after the j manner before described, and that it may j convince them that the merit oi this great j medicine should be given a fair trial in their case.

It is said, testified he had made the statement. This alleged questioning of Whalen's veracity, it Is j-ald, led to the assault. Warren M. Mitchell, of the firm of Mitchell & Weaver, stenographers, who was with Mr. Moncure when he was at? tacked, said there was no other provo? cation for the assault. He and Mr. Moncure were on their way to the hotel, when the Whalen brothers. It is alleged, rushed tip to them and the as? sault began. Joseph Whalen Is said to have struck ! Mr. Moncure In the face, and when j Mitchell sought to intervene he was j pushed aside by several other men. In ! the meantime, it is said Mr. Moncure i was knocked down by Deputy Sheriff j Whalen. and the latter and others be- j gan kicking the prostrate man. It was . denied to-day that Offutt took part in i the assault, and it was claimed that he 1 was simply an onlooker and assisted j the injured man to his feet and to a I drug store after the assault. j Verwion of Mr. Spate?. W. Outerbridge Spates, who saw the assault, said to-day. It Is reported, that there was no conversation preceding, the assault; that Mr. Moncure stumbled and fell, and as he arose was struck and knocked down again, when the , men pounced upon him. He was not j clear as to who struck the first blow. Sheriff Viett to-day said he would take no action until after he had consulted with the State's attorney, who was away from Rockvillc to-day. The assault, it is claimed, was not Iii contempt of court, because under a \ legislative act of 1908 it was com? mitted outside the courtroom and did ! not interfere with the administration of justice. Mr. Moncure, after the assault, was taken to a drug store and Drs. F. N Henderson and George E. Cook, of ! Rockvllle attended him. Later he took a car for Washington with his brother Frank and went in a cab to the office of Dr. King. At 9:30 o'clock last night he was able to leave for his home, j Dr. King said to-day that Mr. Mon I cure's eyes had been injured some t time ago by an explosion in his motor car, and that he had been treating i them. After the assault much con? cern was felt lest the left eye had been permanently destroyed, it was for this reason that Mr. Moncure was hurried to Dr. King's office on his ar? rival in the city.

Cambridge, Mass.. .January zc.?.In a concrete grave on the shores of Lake! Halcyon, in Mount Auburn Cemetery, , I here was laid to-day a bronze casket containing the body of .Mrs. Mary liaker Eddy, founder of tho Christian Science denomination. On the casket rested a bronze box enclosing a com? plete sets of the works of Mrs. Rdfly, together with all recent Christian Science publications, while the sliver plate beneath gave her name and tho dates of her birth and death. Tho ceremony was attended by the di? rectors of the church and a score of its strongest supporters. Judge Olif tord P. Smith, first reader of the Mother Church, repeated the Ninety first Psalm and the last two verses in Jude, which were read at the funeral on December S. Then the grave was sealed. Eater the spot was marked by a mausoleum General Henry H. Baker, Mrs. Eddy's cousin and executor of her will, was the only member of the family in attendance, but it was announced that, all claims to other burial places had been waived. So the church burled Its leader. Since tho funeral service of Mrs. Eddy on December S, the bronze coftln had reposed in the receiving tomb at Mount Auburn, with a guard beside it day and night. That guard was relieved shortly after noon to-day. and an hour later the coffin was drawn out and placed on a bier. The bronze plate covering the features of Mrs. Eddy was pushed back, and one by one the little company gazed for the last time on her placid place. The features had changed little In the seven weeks. There was a slight darkening hero and there, but signs of dissolution were lacking.

Legislators Could See No Chance of Breaking Senatorial Dead? lock This Week. .' Albany, N*. T., January 26.?Another throe nays' truce was declared to-night in tho hat tin to elect a United States Senator. Leaders of botli houses of the legislature said there would ba no quorum of the Joint assembly to-morrow. William v. Sheehan. whose strength on the eighth ballot to-day showed no apparent diminution. Intends to go home to-morrow, and Charles F. Murphy ami the other Tammany Hall leaders will spend the week-end In New York. The truce was declared In recognition of the general feeling that there was no chance of breaking the deadlock this week. The acrimonious debate In the Senate to? day was an example of the growing readi? ness of members to discuss their alleged grievances openly. Kxprcsslons of discon? tent llko these have set the leaders think? ing and encouraged those who hope for a "new deal'." between now and Monday. The tension over U*.o prolonged senatorshlp deadlock broke to-day In bitter charges and CO?htor-chargetJ on the Iloor of the Legis? lature. The trouble started In the Senate when Senator Roosevelt, leader of the "In? surgents," who have stood firm against Wil llum P. Sheehan, began It by offering a resolution directing the clerk to appoint Morgan Iloyt, a brother of Assemblyman Hoyt, dork of the forest, llsh and game committee, of which Franklin D. Roosevelt Is chairman. He had declared that this ap? pointment was taken from him because he rafust-d to como into Hue with the caucus majority that favored Sheehan. ?Senator Brackett declared that thi3 wan "another flagrant and brutal" Instance of trying to bring undue Influences to bear on the election of a United States Senator. | "The Senate cannot afford to ignore so [ grievous a breach of its \iri\lieges," he said.; and served notice that at an early data ho would demand an investigation of what he termed "Clerk McCabe's arbitrary and out-! rageous action." "I myself would like the privilege of : cross-examining him," Senator Braekettj added. "It Is a matter of common knowl- 1 od go that committee patronage and pap i have been withheld for the puivose of in? fluencing the United States sena\>rlal elec? tion." Majority Leader Wngner ehouted angrily: "I a#k tho Senator If ho knows that his statement Is an untruth and-" "I excuse the inexperience of the Senator\ for intlm-ntng that I am untruthful," Sen- i ator Brackett replied, and repeated his j charge that the public business was being obstructed for poliUcaO purposes. Senator Wagner replied with an impassion? ed attack on Senator Roosavelt. He insist? ed that th eclerk had acted strictly within his rights. Senator Roosevelt made a modest dis? claimer. A feature of the debate was a statement by Senator Saxe, of New York, that he would "stand by Senator Roosevelt to tho end of the United States senatorial quea- | tion." (Both have br.in voting for Shepard.) I But he considered that the point of order | raised by Senator Orady that the Senate had no power to Interfere with the preroga ' live- of its chief clerk in appointing clerical I help wan vvoll taken.

Mr. Cummins took the position that the Investigation had not been Justi? fied In suspending their inquiry in this direction simply because the attorney for the Chicago Tribune had said that he would not make any effort to con? nect Mr. Lorlmer with the bribery In his behalf, which the attorney was charging. Mr. Cummins's contention was that as the Tribune was not a plaintiff In the enso tho committee should have proceeded independently of tho concessions of counsel.

Stories Circulated That identity of Curtalu Minderer? Und Been Revealed. [Spoclnl to The Times-Dispatch. 1 Alexandria, Va., January 26.?Hum? ors were rife In this city this afternoon that tho police had learned the Ident? ity of tho parties who murdered Ceorge Curtain about six years ago. The rumor put into circulation Is to .the effect that a man who died recent? ly had made a statement that he knew the murderers. The. police place abso? lutely no credence In tho report, and are anxious to learn who spread the rumor that attained such wide circula? tion in such a short time. George Curtain's body was found In the Potomac River about six years ago close to Christmas time, and it was badly hacked. Following the murder, It was ascertained that Curtain, who was Iben collecting for an Instalment house, had on his person a roll of about $300. Police and detectives for many months van down clues.
