THE DQWSETT-JQNES CASE. A Suit in Which a Son's Debts Figures. The pending case of Dowsett vs. Jones i3 becoming'historical. The rec ords of the case show that Dowsett brought an action in the District Court aeainst Mra. Jones, December 21, 1S93, on a receipt signed by her, dated De cember 27, 1SS7, for "two hundred dol lars a3 a loan to be returned." To this action the defendant pleaded the non joinder of her husband, whereupon plaintiff wa3 allowed to amend by making Mr. Jones co-defendant, and when the case came up, finding that his second summons had not been served on Mr. Jones, he took a third which was served. To thi3 amended complaint, the defendant demurred, on the grounds that it showed no cause t apti'nn arairmt the wife. The de- murrer was overruled, and juugment given for the plaintiff, on the evidence presented, from which judgment de fendants appealed to tbe Circuit Court, which affirmed the judgment. The Supreme Court, on exceptions, held that tbe husband was improperly joined and, that under the married women's act of 18S, the wife alone was liable, but that the plaintiff might amend again by striking off tbe de fendant Mr. Jones name, and have a re-trial. At this last November term of the Circuit Court, the defendant again de murred to a part of the amended com plaint, and answered by general de nial of the rest. The demurrer is overruled by Judge Cooper, leaving the defendant to answer that part, or carry the question to the Supreme Court on exceptions. Tbe contest which tbe defendant is making on tbe law of her case, is owing to her belief that her father, who haa ulnce deceased, had, as he as sured her that he ha1 done, paid the claim to tbe plaintiff, by off-setting a like amount owing to him by Mr. Dowsett'! son. She ha thus far been unable to get Igal proof of such set tlement, which Is denied by the plain tiff. It remains to be sen how this case will eventually reault. -i o . . , . . Committee Can't Decide. "Ihirf. is a variety of opinion? regarding what form of entertain merit will give the leper on Mo lokai the tnot happy Christmas, The committee having in charge the expenditure of the fund real ized from Mr. Wray Taylor's con cert met yesterday afternoon, and after diseasing how to ftpend the money for about an hour adjourned to meet Saturday forenoon at 10 o'clock. It waa thought best to invite Agent KeynokU to offer ?,ug geationsi. The committee ha about $270 at ita disposal. POINTS STRONGLY TO SUICIDE. Sudden Ending of the Master of th8 Paul Isenberg. SECRECY ATTACHED TO AFFAIR No Bportr Allowed at th Iaqaeat and the Verdict Withheld An Empty Bottle Shows by Which Means the Captain Hade III Exit Despondent. John C. Biet, the master of the German bark Paul Isenberg, now in the harbor, died early yesterday morn ing under suspicious circumstances. A coroner's inquest was held in the afternoon, at which no reporters were allowed to be present, and a verdict of some kind rendered. For some reason the result of the investigation is with held from the public by Marshat Hitchcock. It is understood, however, that the jury found that the death was due to an overdose of laudanum. The facts of the case point strongly to suicide, as the deceased was a man who enjoyed good health, and was seen at 8 o'clock Wednesday night, apparently all right. At the hour mentioned he went below and was not seen again until early yesterday morn ing, when the steward entered his stateroom to call him. The boy found the captain breathing very heavily and concluding that something was wrong, he called in the mate. The man did not appear to get any better and finally a doctor was sent for. It was soon discovered that he was be yond medical aid. . .... . r 1 1 41.. An empty Dome was iouuu iu iuw berth occupied by the captain. It had contained laudanum. It was learned yesterday that the deceased had heard some unpleasant news by the Oce anic. Ho was informed that his for mer first mate had been convicted of manslaughter, committed on the high seas, and had been sentenced to serve eight years imprisonment. It the let ter It was intimated that the captain, would fare still worse for his part in the crime. This information had a depres sing effecton the master aud while in a despondent mood he took a dose of the poison with suicidal intent. The crime for which the mate is now im prisoned was considered a brutal one when the facts were known. It hap pened while the vessel was on her last voyage to Germany. A young sea man was triced up and kept in that position until his superiors were afraid to keep up the punishment any longer. He was liberated and died soon after. Of the mate it is said that while the boy was triced up he treat ed him most Inhumanly. Finally, when tbe vessel reached her destina tion, the captain and mats were ar rested. The master was liberated on a heavy cash bail. Various reasons are mentioned for the great secrecy connected with the whole affair. One is that Marshal Hitchcock thinks the deceased met with foul play. Another story, and one that finds favor, i the statement that If it is decided that he committed suicide, his bail money, which amounts to quite a sum, will be de clared forfeited. Another reason is that the dead man held a life insur ance policy with a "noulclde" clause inserted. Thedecead leaves a wife and family in Germany. The funeral took j'lace yesterday afternoon. TTACKED 7 A DOG. J. J. Williams Ha3 a Startling Ex perience on Beretania Street. Early yesterday morning J. J. Williams had an experience that he will not forget for fiomo time. He wan on lieretania street on hia way in town and when near the ice works a big mastiff attacked him and bit one of hia leg3 in Beveral place-. The animal is owned by a member of the mounted police and is eaid to be a moat ferocious beast. While the dog was biting the pho tographer two mounted policemen stood by and, according to Mr. WilliarW statement, neither of fered any agifltanc;, giving as a reason, W thought it wrh a China rn an."
