THE DQWSETT-JQNES CASE.
A Suit in Which a Son's Debts
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
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.

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
