Depew, is still an inmate of the county jail, nor has her rich and influential relative, the Tew York magnate, been heard from. An effort will probably be made to day or tomorrow to effect the release of Mrs. Freeman by a writ of habeas corpus. While her bond, as fixed by the magistrate, is only $300. yet she lias been unable to find surities and there seems to be little or no probabil ity that she will gain her freedom by giving bond. There were no new developments in the rase this morning. While Mrs. Freeman claims thai her attorney had had news from Senator Depew. who sent her tne tuu sue re n nested her attorney, il is said, states that he has heard nothing from the senator. He is said to have told this story to an officer but he has said nothing to newsDaDer men about the case. Her relations or alleged relation to the noted . New york senator makes her case a peculiar one. Depew denies having ever known her and yet she has a set of silverware in her trunk bearing an engraving. "From Chauncey at Tlenew to his niece. Mrs. W. J. Freeman." If she is not a relative of the senator the silverware might tell another story not yet printed here. Police Business Light. Only the names of a few drunkards and vagabonds appeared on the police docket this morning and these were leniently dealt with. Darby Ford Case. The case of the United States vs. Dar by Ford was called for trial before the United States commissioners at 10 o'clock this morning. Ford was ar rested on the charge of having gov ernment DroDerty unlawfully in his noseession. Several weeks ago Constable Tom Bendy was given a search warrant to go out to Ford's place to look for the property. He served the warrant ana recovered some of the property. Ford has long been residing near Fort Bliss, a few yeards outside the reservation, where in the past he op erated a saloon or beer hall that re ceived considerable patronage from the soldiers. He is a discharged sol dier himself and hence does not like to reside far from army posts. Ford came into prominence at the time the negro soldiers raided the police sta tion. Although he had no connection whatever with the parlies connected with the raid. One of his hired men was arrested and kept in prison for a time. Philippine Saloon Surrendered. In the suit of the Houston Ice and Brewery company vs. E. M. English, proprietor of the Philippine saloon, filed by Attorney Uvalde Burns to re cover $700. the saloon proprietor made no fight but surrendered the saloon with its stock and fixtures. Ysleta Murder Suspects. Attorney Burns applied to the dis trict court today for writs of habeas corpus for Marce'.ina Aberta, S. Gon zales, and B. Carmona. three of the men charged with the brutal murder and robbery of a merchant at Ysleta. These are the same men in trailing whom Mr. B. .Alderete, the father of the district clerk, displayed such skill as a detective running them to earth, if reports be true, after many months of silent and untiring work. The writs were granted and the hearing of the prisoners took place to day. They were being held without bond and sought to have bail placed at a reasonable figure. Chiles Wants to Play Ball. Pearce Chiles, the Philadelphia base ball player, who is in the county Jail here charged with robbing a discharg ed soldier on the Southern Pacific train a few weeks ago, has written his sport ing friends in Philadelphia asking them to assist him in some way. He says that the base ball leagues are not fully organized now. but he has signed to play through the season for $200 and would like to arrange his affairs so as to be there. In case he could make bond he would IN TEXAS LEGISLATURE Special to The Herald. AUSTIN.

The Coons-McKelligon assault case sr zit impaneled f to hear the story of the fight between the collector and the attorney aa , the on,ttt rvr innn. cence of the assault of Maurice Mc Kelligon. '. Owing to the unusual publicity given the case by the press the trial attracted more than a passing interest and a good sized crowd had assembled when the first witness. Coons, took the stand. The witness formerly studied law: Hidden tears a union and stated his case like an attorney 'A lake in Utah Salt Like explaining the allegations of an in-i Kids food.... ; Milk dictment to the jury- His language was well chosen and it was soon evi dent to the attorneys that his com mand of English was good. ' Rich Burges. counsel for the defen dant, gave the prosecuting witness plenty of rope and permitted him to tell all about the incidents leading up to the fight. The cross examination was also quite brief. . When asked to state If in his opin ion as a lawyer it was customary or courtesy for a client to place his case in th ehands of an attorney and then go and consult another without noti fying his attorney, witness said : "The hypothesis, your honor, is not parallel." i ne jury aia noi unaersiana wnai mai meant but the court did and the plain- tiff s attorney demanded a direct an swer and not an argument from the witness and finally got it. The prosecuting witness and the de fendant told stories almost similar to their statements as published in The hv,oM tho. tho. no. nn -O"- ' At the conclusion of the argument tho jury ordered the defendant dis charged. Absolutely Cleared. Louis I. Dreeben, a merchant tailor of Silver City, came in from Dallas last night where he was taken by a deputy United States marshal two weeks ago on the charge of fraud in the settlement of his bankrupt case in the federal court at Dallas. He came back here a free man. hav- ng been cleared before a Jury there last week. He was accused of shipping goods from his store in McKinney to his brother in eastern Texas and then tak ing the bankrupt oath. The jury cleared him of the charge after being out only -a few minutes. In Pursuit of the Robbers. Special Detective Long of the G. H. & S. A. railroad went out this morn-, ing in company with George Harold of the police force and is searching the woods east of town for the train rob- bers, who have been breaking open box cars for several weeks. : ., A Mexican came in from that direc tion yesterday afternoon and said he saw the men with a wagon full of goods driving away from the cars, and they could not have' gone very far. Two more determined men never went after a criminal than the two detectives now on their trails and they ar.e expected to report a capture this afternoon. It is believed that the thieves have crossed into Mexico and in that case all the officers can do is to locate them. i ii 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 n i Today's quotations on the New York stock " exchange.
