TROUBLE IN BUTTE
4 A Challenge of a Voter Almost
Creates a Riot

Of tie Murder of His Uncle Ills Evidence on
the Trial Was Clear and With

1T rr Mont April 12Special t TIE
HERALDJ The registration of voters here
today for next Mondays election came
near ending in a serious riot Political
feeling has been high here since the last
election and every move on cither side has
been followed with most jealous care I
When a Republican named W H D eney i
challenged the registration of a Democratic I
voter this afternoon Miles Finlan a well
known Democrat tookit up and a row en II
sued Fiiilan drew his pistol but his arm I
was seized by exChief of Police L
P Smith and the gun turned
down just a it was discharged Smith I
was slightly wounded by a ball in the hip
but no ono ese was touched Following
the shot excitement ran high and it looked
a though a serous riot was imminent but
cooler counselprevailed and further trouble
was prevented
The Republicans are using the unfortu
nate occurrence for all it is worth claim I
fr ing it is a bulldozing scheme to intimidate
their voters and allow illegal registration
J by the Democrats but they do not believe
t themselves and their claims carry so
little weight here that no difference has
been made in the general political feeling
C TV Hatch not Guilty
COLORADO SPRINGS Colo April 12
Last nights session of the Hatch trial did
not conclude until nearly midnight Dur
ing the early part of the evening several
witnesses were called who testified to hav
ing seen C W Hatch at Flagier on the 27th
of April and that the deceased had told
them his nephew often sent him money
with whichto prove up on his claim
q Dr W L Strickler was the most im
poitant witness called He said I am a
physician of Colorado Springs I have had
an active practice for tent Tsix years I
was a medical official during war I heard
Dr Goflsman give his testimony I listener
carefully to his description of the body of
the deceased and of the autopsy Taking
into consideration the condition of the
body and the results attending the
autopsy I should have insufficient
data for giving any positive opinion
out so far as me uaui go a suuum say the
point t apoplexy a the most probable
cause of death It would certainly be
sompthing extraordinary i death ensued
from injuries of so trivial a character The
scalp wound was apparently a
scp apparent mere
scratch As t the bruise it was an exceedingly
ceedingly insignificant wound There i
no evidence that the bruise extended t the
slotH hence I infer that the violence cans
cus
ingliiViS of u onsuiffeanttidractr
Ift person had a sudden attack of apDj
plexv and fell to the ground and blood I
oozed from the ears after death it would
be exceedingly difficult t state the cause I
and it would be necessary t search fur
ther The shock of the fall might cause
blood t ooze from the ear in case the 1
drum membrane is defective
Dr Strickler was not placed on th
stand this morning but was allowed to
make a sew remarks about his course in
tIe ce
C W Hatch the defendant took the
stand and testified HI am thirtytwo
years old I have been on very intimate
terms wit my uncle deceased I lived in
his family two years when a Ilheq
helped him with money ever since 1876
Our relations were the most cordial I
have traveled extensively I went to
Denver last spring arriving there
April 20 I visited the land office
to see about taking up some land I wen
from ther6 to Flagler The train stopped
at the water tank and I got off there and
went to the hotel I met McDonald the
proprietor and asked him where f could get I
a buggy and team t drive t my uncles I
He referred me t Keegan We drove per I
haps two and a half miles out from Flag
ier and at a point nearest the cabin Irom I
the road I got out and he pointed out
1
the direction for me to take t reach the
cabin I went
cbin directly t my uncles
house and from the door I saw him
sitting at the table 1 spoke first I dont
know just what greeting took place We
talked mainly about financial affairs the
entire evening When I started back for
Flagler he accompanied me perhaps hal
the way I gave him 20 to purchase cow
cw
which be had
I bought on time I saw
Keegan at the depot and had a general
conversation with him Ho did not refer
t my uncle at that time I bought ticket

went t Denver the evening of the same day
and from there to Chicago
tlere Chicago Monday From I

While there I i received a telegram llch
COU 1U UlUUU < jrU5UUIl JHQ which SUHCC
that my uncle had been found dead on his
claim The sheriff of Oakland county
Mich called and said that be had been au
thorized by wire to arrest rue for murder
I IJR J no idea what the charge was After
leathered my I decided
Igathcrd composure dec to r
turn here by the lirst train I brought the
sheriff of Oakland county Mich with me
My father dead He died inlSi with
out a aoavints warning while shaving
himself The day before he died he was
feeling exceedingly
At this point Lawyer Thomas for the
defense made a motion that the judge in
4 t struct the jury t bring in a verdict o not
I guilty because of the fact that the prose
t cution had failed to produce the slightest
testimony going to prove that a murder
had been committed saying that if the case
was left t the jury and a verdict rendered
of guilty in one degree or another that it
would be the duty of the court to set aside
tho verdict
District Attorney Garrison followed Mr
Thomas for the prosecution calling the
attention of the court t certain law gov
crLg uch cases The jury which hud
been sent oat were ordered to come into
the court room and the judge ordered the
jury to bring jn a verdict of not guilty
The jury then retired ana In a short time
brought back a verdict as instructed

Republicans Wrest With the Silver Problem I
WASHINGTON April 12The Republican
caucus committee having under considera
tion the question of legislation on tho silver
question had another meeting today
while the subject is being thoroughly dis
Is
cussed wlth a view af ii5egataomo
common ground upon which nil can stand
Secretary Windom was before the commit
tee today on invitation He remained
with the committee about two hours and
engaged in the discussion He is not dis
posed to intrude upon his original bill but
ho expressed himself as willing to accept
the terms of the measure reported by the
House committee The session of the com
mitte lasted until 2 oclock and then on
adjournment was taken until Monday
morning No vote was taken on any prop
s tio No conclusion was reached The
delay in arriving at an agreement appears
to bo caused by the insistence of the ex
treme silver men upon absolute free coin
age The conservative element favors the
House bill and there is a leaven of restrict
ive feeling at work
The section of the House bill particularly
attacked by the silver men is that making
treasury notes issued in payment for bul
lion redeemable in bullion They argue
that the effect of this would be to pile up
bullion in the treasuiy and give a warrant
for the demand of the radical farmers
element for a government warehouse in
which their agricultural products may be
stored and the governments notes issued
thereon They want treasury notes re
deemed in lawful money which may bo
procured by coining the bullion purchased
On this point Secretary Windom contented
himself with reiterating his preference for
the House provision He also expressed
regret that the committee had stricken
ut of his bill tho provision giving him
purchases discretionary authority to suspend bullion
The members of the Senate Republican
silver committee have not had a meeting
since Thursday night and the indications
are that they will wait until the House cau
cus announces its conclusion upon the sub
ject The committee consists of Senators
Morrill Allison Aldrich Sherman Jones
and Hiscock the six Repuolican members
of the commute on finance and Davis
Mitchell McMillan Manderson Platt
and Teller rue silver men on this com
mittee are contending for the free coinage
of bullion produced in the United Sta es
and of Mexican ore smelted in United
States refineries They say the
entire amount produced in the United
States and Mexico as shown
by the statistics of the treasury depait
melt is 57000000 ounces annually all but
7000000 ounces being of native production
This entire amount they claim is not us
great at present values as the secretary is
required to purchase by the terms of the
Jones bill That bill requires the purchase
monthly of silver bullion to the value of
4300000 but they admit that the effect of
the passage of the bill would be to in
crease the value of silver In case they
are unable to secure anything from the
committee more favorable to them than the
terms of the Jones bill the silver men will
insist on a substantial increase of the
paper currency of the country There are
several suggestions in the bill of the com
mittee respecting this point
At 4 am nothing further had been heard
from Randalls house except that ttaudall
is still alive The watchers are simply

Emperor William will hold a series of pro

various departments Chancellor von
Caprivi Baron von Burlepsch and Baron
von Beiderstein successively I is re
ported to be the determination of the Em
peror to exercise rigid personal scrutiny
over every measure Besides overloading
himself with work he in the meantime
threatens to paralyze ministerial work
None of the bills based on the de
cisions of the labor conference and
proposed by Berlepsch has re
ceived the final imperial sanc
tion The assent of the Bundesrath to the
measures is doubtful The federal govern
ments do not share the Emperors eager
haste for reforms The prospect is there
fore that when the Emperor opens the
reichstag iu the speech from the throne
announcing his labor measures ho will
speak without the quality of definiteness
which characterized the announcements of
the Bismarck regime Beyond the preg
nant fact that the reichstag will be asked
to grant a military credit of probably
bO000000 marks nothing i known of the
governments programme The Progres
sists press indulges in visions of a
change in tho tariff policy a reduction
of the duties on cereals and progressive
modifications of the customs so as to
Io custlms
aoolisn tlie tax on articles that are abso
lute necessaries for the people and that a i
simultaneous adoption of tariffs so as to
develop the industries of the country I
is not believed in otllcial circles that the
Emperor will be rash enough to entangle
himsel in the difficulties entailed by a re
vision of the tariff which would invole
complete reforms in the whole
financial and fiscal system of the
empire Already the leading federal
princes of the empire incredulous of the
Emperors capacity and methods of govern
ing are trying to tone down his selfcon
fidence It is an open secret that the gov
ernments of Bavaria Wurtemburg and
Saxony will not cooperate in any of the
Emperors mtasures unless the Emperor
consuls them more on the general lines of
his policy One of tho chief features of
the movement is the disunion in the
Freisinnige party Since the Freisin

dictatorial and inelastic in the face
of the expected coalition with the Conser

NEWARK J April 121or seven years
Mrs Joseph Mether of 92 Charlton street
has every Sunday strewn flowers on the
grave of a stranger under the impression
that it contained the remains of her hus
band Now that she has discovered her
I mistake she is greatly worried because she
has no means of finding out the resting
place of the man she once vowed to love
honor and obey Her husband died twenty
five years ago and was buried in Fair
mount cemetery In November 1SS2 Eliza
beth Barr died and she was buried in the
same grave as the records show Methers
bones had been disinterred and removed to
some other part of the cemetery and the
grave was sold to Mrs Barrs relatives
The mark that Mrs Mother had placed on
her husbands grave was moved to one
side so it rested on the next grave in
which was buried Captain Kernan
I Mrs Mether was surprised last Decoration
tion day when she found head boards had
i been erected over tho grave she thought
contained the body of her husband She
made inquiries and found her husbands
remains had been dug up and removed but
the cemetry people dont know now in
what portion of the cemetery they are
Even if the cemetery officials should pro
duce bones purporting to be those of her
husband she has no means of identify
ing them and she fears she never will
know where his last resting place is

of flogging Dr Guervich the prison
physician was strongly opposed to the
Hogging He furnished the governor of r
the prison with a certificate setting forth
that Madame Segida was receiving treat
ment nt his hands for heart disease I
had long been customary for the prison
officials to accept such a certificate as suf
ficient warrant for suspending the inflic

prison rules should be rigorously en
foyced in the case of political prisoners

the presence of soldiers she was thrown
upon a bench and held down while a i
hundred cruel blows were laid upon her

The Great Demonstration of
May 1 Causes Apprehension
AMONG THE TIMID OF THE CITY
The Number of Men the Socialists will Mass
Various Opinions Concerning the
Outcome of the Matter
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
PARIS April 12By cable to the New
York Herald Tho Parisians are begin
ins to look ahead to the first day of May
with some apprehension On the one hand
ire arrayed the forces of socialism men
resolute to show by an imposing demonstra
tion that their demands are such as cannot
bo lightly set aside and on the otljer there
are centered in M Constans all the powers
of law and order as represented by thou
sands of police and soldiers
The minister of the interior it will be re
membered has declared his intention to
prevent any demonstration of the kind
predicted cost what it may In no wise
staggered by this declaration of the gov
ernment the Paris Socialists are working
with a will to organize their demonstration
Despite M Constans and all his police and
soldiers they vow they will meet In such
numbers that the powers vested in the
government will pale into insignificance in
comparison Thus it is that timid people
are already heard asking if it will be safe
to venture into the streets to breathe the
balmy air of May and if it will not be
probable or at least possible that those
streets will run with gore
For the last for might meetings have been
held every third day in different parts of
Paris and hand bills by hundreds and
thousands have been distributed among the
toilers The hand bills set forth the ob
jects of the demonstration The document
goes on to recount how the idea of holding
this demonstration of the universe was
hootedt at the International Socialist con
gress which was held in Paris in July ISbO
May 1 was fixed as the date of a univer
sal demonstration of labor and the same
was chosen as the grand annual fete of the
laboring world It was unanimously de
cided that the toilers of all countries repre
sented at the congress shall demand the
public powers to give satisfaction to their
just claim and the following added that the
demonstrations will be for the most wil
fully blind a revelation of the gigantic
work which has been accomplished in
masses of toilers since the commune was
established and the necessary outcome of
which will be the advent of the new social
istic order of things
Each country was left to determine
what kind of a demonstration best suited
its own purpose In France the idea was
welcomed with enthusiasm among th
Socialists and the municipal council even
promised moral and pecuniary support In
Germany where the authorities have de
cided to quash any attempt at demonstra
tion the latest news Is there is a split in
the Socialist ranks Bevel and Beknechtba
being opposed to the scheme In Austria
the strikes now in progress are believed ts
be an augury of what May 1 will bring
forth In Belgium the demonstration it
expected to bo notable and oven in Norway
a demonstration is in progress
With reference particularly to Park
Jules Gueside soninlaw of Karl Marx
whose mantle has descended upon his
shoulders declared to the reporters that
the demonstration would be grandiose
We shall number 200000 toIlers Ho
continued Two hundred thousand
resolute men will crowd the streets
of this capital The government has
announced Its intention of dispersing us It
is easy to disperse 500 not so 200000 How
ever we desire that our demonstration be
quite pacific but I am confident that the
good sense of the Parisian workingman will
obviate such an eventuality
Other Socialistic deputies share the same
confidence but M Joufrin labor candi
date whom his political opponents still nick
name the elect of the minority in cease
quence of his sitting as deputy for Mon
martre instead of Boulanger is inclined to
be sceptical I am persuaded it will be a
fiasco he said today Many of the lead
ing spirits of the demonstration are Bou
langists and consequently have no influ
ence on the vast body of workingmen Wo
shall see that the French workingman will
not lay down his tools and quit his shop io
the middle of the week

The Evangelical Church How
CHICAGO April 12 Todays sessions of
therival factions of the Evangelical church
were very mild Manifestoes were ex

pletely separate organizations just as if
the other party was not in existence
Bishop Eshers faction however is deter
mined to have the records and other books
and the legal fight which will be begin
next week will probably hasten the com
pletion of the rupture in the church

Astigmatism which is the inability to sea F
lines running in different directions i
equally distinctr Is the principal cause of
defective sight and by far the most annoy
lag and is only detected and corrected by
a specialist thoroughly acquainted and
practiced in the application of the scien
tific tests In such cases not only must
special lenses be provided but they must
also be mounted just the properway a
the same lenses fitted any other way will
bo positively hurtful
Dr G W Tibblts the occulist and auris
of 10 East First South street is very sue
cessfulin such cases His office is provided
with all the scientific tests and he is thor
oughly competent and practiced In the use
of these tests for full and complete cor

from optical defect will secure permanent
relief applying to him and will also save
money
