Found Guilty or UiiHclciitlllo Lying and Sentenced to Mend fair Three Hours Every l>ujr from Ills Own Works?Sportive Proceedings on nil Atlantic Liner. [Special Correspondence.] New York, Nov. 3.?It was iu tho month of July last that Murk Twain was put in irons and brought before an ad? miralty court upon serious charges. Tito story of that experience in tho life of tho famous humorist has just beeu brought back to this country by some of those who witnessed tho trial and who saw Mark Twain in chains, and nothing he lins overwritten contains more hu? morous suggestions than does this story. Among Mark Twain's follow passen? gers upon the steamship Lahn were ex Judge Dittenhoefer, of New York; Syd? ney Wobster, of Boston, mi eminent law? yer; James T. Wallach, a prominent merchant of New York city, und n party of twelve Ynlo students, among them being tho famous football champion of Yale, Mr. McClung. Mark Twain hud miido merry with the passengers. Ho told some of his most extraordinary stories, which, while they had tho appearance of having oc? curred to him tit tho moment, ho in? sisted were veritable chronic les, and as incredulity prevailed among the passen MARK TWAIN IN IRONS, get s it was at last publicly declared that Mark Twain was "in his capacity us si story teller an inordinate and unscien? tific liar." Tho humorist resented these accusations, insisting that if in any of his published narrutions thero appeared to be anything which justified such ac? cusation ho had written it in moments of irresponsibility or insanity, and bo declared that he was willing to stand trial upon theso charges. Captain Dampfer, who bus the power of an autocrat upon his ship, authorized a court of admiralty to be organized, of which Mr. Dittenhoefer was appointed judge. Mr. Wallach was chosen by the court counsel for prosecution, and Mark Twain selected the eminent lawyer, Mr. Wobster, counsel for the defense. The Yale students wero impaneled as jurors, and Mr. McClung was made foreman. Tho court was held on the evening of July 14 in the great saloon of the steam? ship. Judge Dittenhoefer took his seat on the bench, and ho never looked more stern when he was serving as judge in a New York city court. Tho jury were seated in a box to the right of the judge, and tho counsel were gathered at a table, and near them were the witnesses for the prosecution and the defense. After tho court was opened Judgo Dit? tenhoefer instructed tho sheriff to bring the prisoner in. Tho clanking of chains was heard, and a moment later Mark Twain, with disheveled hair, with .shuf? fling step because tho ship's irons bung heavy on his legs, and with Iiis wrists inclosed in handcuffs, was brought in and placed iu t!io prisoner's dock. At n command from the judge the irons were removed, and the trial begun with a speech from the prosecuting offi? cer, in which he declared that ho should prove that Murk Twain had been guilty of inordiualo and unscientific lying. Here the prisouer bent his head to conceal his emotion apparently, and seemed to be Fobbing. Miss B. 11. Dit? tenhoefer was called us the first witness. She read extracts from Mark Twain's description of the jumping frog. The jury looked very solemn when this evi? dence was introduced, uiid Mr. Webster, the counsel for iIil- defense, on cross ex? amination demanded of the witness what thero was unscientific in Ibis lie, if it was a lie, and she replied that al? though it caused people to laugh they smiled nt thi! improbability of tho story, and added that there was nothing funny in the suggestion of filling tlio stomach of a frog with shot to prevent its making a, jump, and thereby causing its owne; to lose n bet. Mr. K. I). Cheney, being summoned as a witness, produced ono of Mark Twain's books and read from it his as? sertion that he dropped a tear upon t ho tomb of Adam. When asked by Mr. Webster what thero was unscientific J about that lie, if it was a lie, Mr. Cheney 1 replied that the world know that Mark Twain never wept, und never made any ono else weep. If he hud writ ton that he searched the vicinity for the tomb of Evu or had exhumed Adam's remains, that ho might discover which rib was takon for the creation of Eve, that would have been an entirely scientific and ra? tional undertaking at Adam's tomb. Other witnesses read extracts from "Huckleberry Fiun" and quoted from tho exploits of Colonel Mulberry Sellers u-s narrated by Mark Twain to prove that the accusation that tho various humor? ous lies there narrated wero unscientific, and therefore improbable, and then the j prosecution rested. The defense was insanity or irrespon? sibility, and the two ship's physicians were put upon the stand, each of whom testified that in all their experience they had never met a man who talked so ir? rationally ns Mark Twain did. They declared that the stories he told them had not one grain of probability, in I thoy indicated an abnormally' diseased condition of bis mind. Mark Twain himself was put upon the stand. He testified that he had no recol? lection of ever having written anything about a jumping frog, and that ho felt liko smiting tho men and women who came to him and told him, as thousands of them did, that tho jumping frog was tho funniest story they ever had read. Ho testified that if he ever said that ho wept at tho tomb of Adam it must have been in moments of hallucination, sinco his emotions at tho discovery of that tomb would certainly have been those of joy. He attacked the testimony of Mr. Cheney, declaring that ho was unworthy of belief as a witness. "Why," said he, "I met Cheney's father a few days be? fore I sailed, and ho told mo that his son was being sent to Europe to cure him of a mania for prevarication. Not long ago that young man disappeared from his homo for several days. When ho camo back in a shamefaced manner his father said: ' Where havo you been?" "I havo been hunting boar." "Well, if you killed any bear I shall not punish you; but if you did not kill any, then I shall banish you to Europe for awhile. How many did you kill?" "I shot 1892 bears, father." "You aro a falsifier. You havo mixed np the year of our Lord with your bear shooting exploits. You will havo to go to Carlsbad to bo cured." When Mark Twain finished this anec? dote the prosecuting attorney declared that ho had been convicted out of his own mouth, for the anecdote itself was an unscientific lie, insomuch that Mark Twain had mentioned bear as the game, whereas ho should havo said fish. Everybody expects that a fisherman will exaggerate the number of fish caught, but nobody ever knew a bear hunter to do it. The jury convicted the culprit without leaving their seats, and Judge Dittenhoefor was called upon to impose sentence. Ho com? manded Mark Twain to stand up, and ho declared that for tho first time a jury of his peers had formally and very properly on tho evidence found him guilty of unscientific lying. He should thereforo sentence! him to read for three hours every day from his own works until the steamer reached port. As sentence was pronounced Mark Twain groaned, and then, falling on his knees, implored the judge in those words: "Anything but that! Hang mo if you will, but do not compel meto road my own works. That; is a slow and horrible death!" Without heeding the appeal Judge Dittenhocferadded that as Mark Twain was going to Germany to live for awhile lie should also condemn him to abandon tho American form of his name, which means two marks, and tise instead the German word "Bismarck." "There can? not be two Bismarcks in Germany," said tho judge, "and it will bo a part of your punishment to carry on battle with the prince of that name for your right to use it." Mark Twain served his sentence f tith fnlly. He road three hours every day from his own works, but most of the passengers wished that he had not. mark twain bcqs for mercy. Of course all these proceedings were ! sportive, but they netted fur the Sea? men's fund some ?600. and wore said by the captain to havo been the most in? teresting and delightful of nil the enter? tainments ever arranged at sea upon any of the steamships of that line. E. J. Edwards. A Politician In Piece*. LSpcclal Correspondence] New Orleans, Nov. 8.?Governor Nichols relates with much relish his peculiar experience in a hotel. During the late unpleasantness tho governor, then general, had the misfortune to lose his riylit log, having parted company with his right arm in an accident several years before tho war. Dining the last campaign he was I stumping Mississippi and stopped over night, at a hotel in Natchez. "Send a man to my room," said tho governor, and in a fow momentsn typical southern negro made his appearance. The dis? robing process had boon continued for some time when tho governor command? ed, "Take oif my arm." "Sali!" said the astonished negro, his wool fairly rising. "Tako off my arm," repented the governor, and Sambo edged suspiciously toward the couch, assisting in removing the artificial member. Laying it upon tho table he gave the limb a long and careful examination, but w suddenly interrupted by the rommand, "Take off my leg." For a moment ho gazed at the reclining sol? dier and then started for the door. It required innumerable threats, ex? planations and promises to get the darky near tho bed, but finally a largo portion of tho governor lay upon the table, nnd thero was a mischievous twin? kle in Iiis eyes. "Come here, Sambo," he shouted, lean ? ing forward. "Come here and unscrew my head." The darky waited no longer, but with ono wild rush bedashed from tho room, and bursting into the ofiico shouted, "Oh, Mass:i Charles! there's a man in ?i! who is coming to pieces." A crowd followed to 48, and the governor "set ?em ud." G. C. K. COMPACT AND TASTEFUL TnIs Com moil lous Modern House Con Ilo Ilullt for $4,000.
