RESULT OF THK HOWARD TRIAL AT JAUKSO.N, TiiNN. A Baptist Preacher Convicted of Using Ihe Malls for Fraudulent Purposes. Ho Is Proved to Be a Wolf lv Sheep's Clothing. Jackson, Term., Jan. 3.—The jury in the famous Howard case this morning returned a verdict of guilty. George Frederick Burgoyne, alias Frederick Hewlett, alia; E, Rose, alias William Lord Moore, alias Joseph Ledger, was technically charged with using the United States mails ior fraudulent pur poses. According to the evidence he waa one of the most accomplished con- I tidence men in this country or any other. The etory of hie doings would fill volumes. According to the claims of the prosecution Howard, under vnri ! ous aliases', <tai;«udcd the American I people out of 155,01)0. He, alter a check ered career in various parts of die world, came to Jackson in 1883, identified him self with the First Baptist church, of which he was soon elected pastor, aud was (liven the chair of moral philosophy in the Southwestern Baptiut university here. After a time a division sprang up in hie church and his trial was tbe out growth of tbe enmities aroused while he was pastor of tbe church. Hia enemies spent large Bums to gather evidence against bim, both hero and in England. This evidence wae to tbe effect tbat he went to Now York in 1800 and under the alias ot E. Robs opened a claim agency, | duping a large number of Americans into , believing rich Euglinh estates awaited ; them which tbey could have by paying i him $35 incidental feeß. The postal ■: authorities broke up thia game and he ! went to London where, under the name jof William Lord Moore, he announced |to bis dupes tbat be bad succeeded to I the business of Rosa, and when driven i out again by the efforts of the United ! States minister he re-appeared in New j York sb Joseph Ledger, successor to ' Moore. lie came here a few montha ago to 1 negotiate bonds of Gulf end Ship Island i railroad, and approached old clients. ! For thia he waa arreated in Chicago; he eecaped to Canada, waa rearrested, brought here and tried with the above results. He iB a man of remarkable ability, conducted his own case, contin uing to preach at the Baptist church, bis friends continuing to stand by bim to the end. A motion for an arrest of judgment ia pending. A motion for a new trial was granted. An Aseociated \< <• :■■ correspondent j interviewed Dr. Howard tonight. He ; said tne verdict wae au outrage and a | great Burpriee to bim. There was no proof to enatain tbe judgment. He ; wouid reserve hia opinion nntil after sentence was pronouut-td tomorrow; then he would express himself fully ; and freely. There waa not a scintilla of proof to show that his Jackson busi ness was not fair and legitimate. The United Statea marshal arrested this afternoon Edgar Smith, W. J.Glea s«u and George Hesrtly, three of Dr. Howard's New York witnesses, charged with peijury. Being unable to give bonds, they were Bent to jail to await trial. ANOIHKK CItANK.

There wae considerable delay before a quorum was secured. After the reading of the jonrnal, Black burn of Kentucky presented the creden tials of Senator Eppa Hunton of Vir ginia, who took the oath of office. Hill presented a bill limiting the effect of regulations of commerce be tween tbe several states and with for-, eign countries. The bill called np by Pngh ol Alabama, for the relief of certain aliens! who bad acquired property in the DiaJ trict of Columbia, occasioned much dis-1 cussion, and it developed the fact that aliens are incompetent to hold property in tbe District of Colnmbia. Harris of Pennsylvania thonght the present law waa obnoxious and that • general bill ehonld be introduced per mitting aliens to hold property in the district. Iseue on this point waa promptly taken by Cock-ell of Mieeonri, who ap proved the present law and said he hoped the time would never come when aliens could hold property in the Dis trict of Colnmbia. 'After some further discussion Harris withdrew his objections and tbe bill waa passed, it being for tbe relief of David K. Goodwell and legalizing hit' ownership of real estate in the district.

Before the time arrived for Wilson to take the floor, McCreary tried to arrange an ami cable agreement by which two days, Friday and Saturday, should he given* to consideration of the Hawaiian resolu-j tion. 1 Hitt, Republican leader of the foreign* affairs committee, expressed hie willing- uess to acquiesce in the arrangement,; but Boutelle wanted to precipitate the question immediately by calling up bit resolution. Both sides were ugly, bnl after a lively row the speaker held thai Bontelle'e resolution was privileged. The Democratic members of the wayi and mesne committee were not willing to go ahead with the Hawaiian discus sion until tariff debate had been gotten well ur. :-r way, however, and the ques tion of consideration was raised again-] the Bon telle resolution. Tbe Republicans then executed I dank movement by refusing to vote The Democrats found themselves in 1 humiliating position, not being able tt muster a quorum. After revoking al leaves of absence Wilson relnctantl] moved adjournment.
