These cased will ntimu m .eh atte:iii"Ti for the reason. 11 no other, tnai so many 1 r thepeopleof ISie 1-MsiriU have been .M!gi.i to do business wttli thestu modern HiijIikKs, who could gi t the old man or Venice curds, -jades, and big casino and beat htm at the round up. If all the victims were to attend the trial to-day most of them would be out in the meet lor the wautot even stauuing room only. The other reason Is that the decision la these cases involves the continuance of this kind of business in Washington which. The Times lias biougtil to light, and, judg ing from the cemmendatious of its ac tion, has made hateml to all Washing touians, except luo&e tliat derive benefit ironi the getting io detp into the pockets of innocent poor people 'who, once in tho net, are unable to escape. The WaMiington Mortgage Company lias also been brought into court, and there are pending against it two cases which they will Lave to plead to-morrow after noon bclore Judge Taylor. It is not known whether this company, or rattier Mr. Yennawine, will move lor a change of venue. The first case againtt this company is that or a herdic conductor. Tins com plainant has been paying" $2 .20 a mouth mterest on a loan of $20. Ilia suit is lor the recovery of live inouthb' usurious inter est. OXE OF THE WORST CASKS. The secoud cn'-c ib that of a laboring man at Ivy City who has been paymg a nionthlj interest of 3 -for a lean oi $30. These cases are chosen because tbej involve small amounts and are not removable by the certiorari derrick to the Higher courts. One of the worst cases jet was put in the hands of Messrs. Ralston k, Siddons yesterday. It is that of a hard-working mechanic at the Navy Yard. In June, '93, he borrowed $70 from one of the individual Suylocks. In December he jumped out of the frying pan into tho fire. He thought he would cancel ids debt to the Eingle Shy lock by raising money from the Washington MortgageCompany. Theygavehim enough to pay off his original note to the first lender, and between them he is now $250 out, and owes besides a note of 60. The Times' attorneys are having some in teresting experiences with people whodo not yot understand what their functions are in relation to the Shj-lock business. For In stance, a day or two ago one of the parties proposed in a forthcoming divorce sun, called at tho office and desired to enlist the good offices of The Times' lawyers. This caller had evidently mixed up the mar riage buroau of The Times with somebody else's divorce bureau. Another caller wanted to know if suit couldn't be brought against a man who charged her too much for hauling a load of furniture that was not mortgaged to a store-house.

North, and readily recalled bj' those who were present at tile prayer nicetlug at Garden Memorial Church, last Thursday evening. About a week ago Mr. LSnell confided to ids pastor, Kvv. J. B.

There is a melancholy iuterest at this place or opera'tioiis. They have dug up nearly all of the coifiue. Some of them are in splinters, others are in Mi.ipe but are full of holes, and the oucs referred to by the workman are complete with the exception that the tops have been removed and look exactlj like boats btrauded ou the beach. , The Collins, there j'esterday afternoon were perhaps (lie result only or yesterday's work becausehej' are removed when the contents have been dit-posed or.

There could have re mained Karcely nioie in these cases tlmn the poetic "duet" tQ which the dead return. The cemetery is quite an old one ud it is to be expected that such conditions as these should exist in this work. A pecul iarly interesting story was told there j'es terday afternoon, whah goes to show that burials were made there at an earlier period than most people imagine. A number or buttons were round in one grave witha lot of shredaud patches which arc believed to have once been the uniform of a Ccrtinental s icier. The button. have o .t lasted all the other monuments of the ouldier. and some of them are now in the posscisio:: or feergt. Mout-goinerj-, at the Clgt-tb precinct. The man in charge of the exhumations said yester daj' that it was tie intention ol some of those who had the buttons to have them examined by some one skilled in this ki'id ot lore to find out to what period of his tory they belonged. It miiy be that the grave from winch ihese.buttons -were taken was there belore the establishment of the cemetery and that the only burial suit the old soldier had was his tattered uniform, in wliicb he braved the bulletsof the Hni ish.

Another case of interest that occurred some time ago was that of a soldier of the Mexican war, -who was taken up in tint cemetery. lie had been sent on to this bur j'i ng ground from .South America. When the exhumation took place the wooden casket had rotted away and the old soldier was found incased in armor from head to foot. Attached to the steel cap in front of the cj'es was a glass fixture, through which ins friends in a foreign country had taken their last look at the stranger.

Beat ty, Winchester, Va .June 23. Historic, beautiful Winchester, as an nounced In the telegraphic news of The Times, lias been in the potc&-ion of the cavalrj-men from Washington since noon yesterdaj'. Its citizens, who so gen erously entertained the troop on its visit here rour jears ago, again displayed that same well-known Southern hospitality which has made the name of Winchester an honored and lavored one in the mind or every tiooper. About three miles out or town Messrs. Edgar Wonhington and Urvan Conrad met the column a:.d escorted it through the mam street to the tame old camp on the fair grounds. The appearance made by the men as they marched, through the old place was a striking and thoroughly nulitary oue. The Trooper,, after a week in the saddle and exposed to tbeiun,coered with dust and clad m their serviceable blue ihirts and campaign hats presented that same likenes? to regulars winch has been to ravorably commented upon throughout the line of march. Thr three trumpeters seemed to be pos sesied or an extra stuck or blowing power, their lungs having been invigorated by tae pure mountain air, and Iron the time the town was entered until'the rair grounds were reached the strains of tne lannliar bugle marches re-echoed through Winchester streets, which Iconic doweled as if bj iiiagic, and many a father and mother weie seen who api eared to be telling their children interesting anecdotes of years ago regarding the blue and the graj-. KKCEIVHD ATFAIKGKOUXDS. At the fair grounds the Troopers were received by t he following prominent c itizens: Capt. J. J Williams, Judge W L. Clark, aud Messrs-. It. T Barton, J B.

No public reception wns tendered the Troop, as was done four jears ago, because the good people or Yt'inchc-ter did not look upon Capt. Barbour's command as btraugcrs, but as old friend?. A most satisfying lunch with ice-cold beer was awaiting the Troopers, who. alter giving the necessary attention which every cavalry man extends' to ins horse, marched to the main building, and, after giving three rousing cheers ror Winchester and its! citizens, proceeded to demolish the good tilings provided lor them. Everything desirable was on the table in plenty, and the hungry and thirsty troopers did lull justice to the repast Thej- had niaich"d but nineteen miles, which, to them, is now a mere nothing, simply a liule exer ciso required to keep them Trom Kettinc too stout on the meals rurnihhed them by the commissary department.

Private Barton was immPdiately. by unanimous con snt, promoted to the rank of major and carries his new title with as much grace and modesty as he did his old one. TJx-Ma j'or Alexander, Winchester'sorator, who gave tho Troop an olficial welcome on its last visit, repeated the cordial welcome in eloquent language. FORGOT HIS INTELLECT. Mr. It. w. Ward amusd the troopers, when lie was called upon to make a few re marks, by saying lliathi3distinguisli0d name sake, Artemus Ward, upon being asked to make a speech on a ceitain occasion, told his audince that lie was a man of gigantic intellect, but unfortunately, he had left his mtoilect at home. Mr. Ward proceeded to say that he was in Mm same predicamentand that rather than wait until he could send for his intellect he would resume his scat. Alter Mr. Stephenson had given a few words of welcome, Capt. Barbour in a few well chosen remarks, thanked the gentlemen present and thegood peopleor WmcliVsterfor thir kindness, and assured them that the Troop appreciated it and Avould take ad vantage of it. Tents were soon put up thorearter. The camp is a beautirul one, having plenty of water, besides stalls for tho horses. It was not long until the fair grounds were deserted by all except the guard, and the nien repaired to Winchestcrto make, ft tends and meet old acquaintances. Many of the prominent citizens received calls from the orficers, and open house was the order of the daj'. Tiie boj-s thoroughly en joyed themselves, and returned to camp in a seasonable hour.
