CASE NOT YET CONCLUDED Doc Xot Think Mis Methods Woro Reprehensible nnd Declares He Wiih hh Considerate as Possible Under the Circumstances Difference of Opinion. The police trial board, composed of Capt. Aiiblin and Lieuts Heffner and Swin dells, met in star chamber session yes terday afternoon at police !sdquurters, and bt-gati an investigation Into tlie case of Detective Charles Proctor, which lasted from 12 until n o'clock, and was then con tinued over until this afternoon. The investigation tvas oixleied by Com missioner Tu.cMlell, and by hit direction Assistant Attorney for the District James L. Pugh appealed for the prosecution. De tective Pi ocmr connected his own case and cross-exam i net the witnesses The charge? against Proctor are viola tion of uaraiapn 9 o the police manual, 'hieb. efct to cdiiduct unbecoming an officer. The trial is tee result of (he Moxwell-ryaon t rrest 6eeral days ago, an I, it is alleged i'tat Hie accused officer dl hoi use i.roi.er discretion In niaLiiig the arrest, aim tLatl.a woat ojt f his ay to hecure ovldeii'c in a case which was only a nnndeiut-u.'or. PROCTGifS STATEMENT. The deteci.e went on ti e st-ind and stated that he was assigned to the case by his chi'if. and furnished with a warrant lor the arroot of Mr. Maxwell and Miss Tynau by Assistant District Attornoy Mullo'vuej He said that m securing the evidence he had followed the instructions ol the assistant District attorney, and did not think his methods were reprehen sible. He" said that on tlie night the ar rests were made he was accompanied and assisted by Detective Gallaher, vlio had not, it seems, been previously connected with the case. The arrests, lie declared, were made without violence either to the persons or reelings of the people, any mora than it was pobsiule to avoid. Mr Vv' H Main, iu whose Iioueo the arrest took place, was the first witness examined after Proctor had made his statement. Mr Main was on the stand over two hours, and was examined at great length by Prosecuting Attorney Pugh, and cross-oj.amlued by Proctor. Ho gave a detailed accouut ot the case from bis knowledge of it. and told of the information iurnubed by lnm to tlio as sistant District attornoy. which resulted in a warrant Iwmg issued and Proctor being assigned to the case. AVitness tes tified as to the relations of the two people whilo in his house, and of the manner of thir arrests by Detectives Proctor and Gallahor. Mr. Mam was followed on tlie stand by the colored chambermaid in the houso, -whose testimony was unimportant, inas much as it referred ouly to the relations of Sir. Max-well and Misa Fyuan. UDLLOWNEY AND 1'UOCTOH DIFFER. Theuext witness -was Assistant District Attorney Mullowney, -who issued the warrants and directed Inspector Hollm berger to put a detective on the case. There was a difference of opinion between Mr. Mullowney and Detective Proctor as to the instructions iued by the former to the latter in regaid to working up evi dence in the case The detective claimed that he acted only upou the instructions of the prosecuting at torney when the -vi arrant was placed in his hand, but Mr. Mullowney, while he did not remember the conversation between them, -was under the impressions that the directions he gave as to tcci'nrg evidence in the cat-c were of a different nature. He said, however, that bo would not be positive in that regard, as Mr. Proctor Lad stated differently and be did Lot think Mr Proctor would kuov.'inglj misstate the facts iu the rase The next -witness called was "Warrant Clerk 'Washburn, of the police court, who testilied as to the lthulng or the warrant for tbe arrest of the two people. MORE THIS AFTERNOON. The lmestigation will be resumed this afternoon at 2 o'clock, when Iuspector Holhnberger, Detectives Gallaher and Hliodes, and Mr A Johnson will be exam ined. The specifications upon which Proctor is being tried embody, it is said, a large part of the report which he was required to give soon alter the arrests were made, and which -was sent by Chief Clerk S1- ester to Commissioner Truesdcll, and upon which the investigation was ordered. Tbis report was made out some time be fore Detective Proctor was made aware that there was to be a trial, and is in the iture of forced evidence against him self. Absolutely nothing is known as to the disposition which will be made or the case, and until the lipdings or the board are officially made public, statements as to the final result will be mere guesses. Whether or not Mr. Proctor will be re duced to the ranks or otherwise punished for his alleged indiscretion ih a matter that the Commissioners will decide after tlie repoit of the trial board. HOIVGATE'S SEXT MOVE. Motion In Arrest of Judgment I'llcil by His Counsel. A motion in arrest of judgment was filed yesterday for Capt. Henry W IXovgate, convicted last week of forgery and falsi fication of accounts in connection with Ins roljlwry of tbe government sixteen years ago. The grounds of the motion are that the laws under which the indictments was found do not fit the charges and ttiat the In dictment for false accounts fails (o Mate that Howgate knew the account to be false when betransmitted it to the treasury. The motion will probably, be argued within the next ten days. Decree of Di orce for Mrs. Bench. Mrs Henrietta Beach yesterday obtained a divorce from her husband, Frank L.

REQUEST A TEIAL BY JUEY Declaration Submitted uy Plaintiff That Suit Is Brought for Recovery of TT.surlouH Interest Defendant's Plea Denies the Loaning of Any ilonoy Vhatoer. There was some more of the law's delay inthecaseaKaln8tMr.0 J. Bairett, trading as the Capital Guarantee Loan Company, which was to have been disponed of yes terday before Justice Church. Mr Rals ston. for the complainant, and Mr Uailey, for the defendant, appeared promptly, as did the parties in mterest. On the call of the case Mr RaLston an nounced that in order to &.uuro o final de termination of the suit he would ask for a trial hj jurj, no appp.il being allowed in cases so tried. Justice Church thereupon insisted that there should he something in the shape of formal pleadings so that an issue might be Joiued as pnnided by the statute MR BAILEY'S OBJECTIONS To the declaration, as first made, Mr. Bailey raised the objection that, as it was a statutory action it should set forth that the actiou was upon a contract or agree ment for a loan, or Uie conveyance of money between the plaintiff and defend ant Mi Kalstou then submitted a declaration, in which Uie plaintiff brings suit for $20.23 and costs in the paper being an allegation of usurious interest. -Mr Uailey thereupon withdrew his ob jection'j and entered tlie following pica 1. The defMHlant now comes, ami for pica s,t s he is not indebted as alleged. 2 For further plea the deferdant says that neitLer the Mini of $24 75 nor any other sum of money was loaned by him to the plaintiff as alleged 3. For further plea the defendant says that neither the bum ot 520 25 nor any other bum or money has been paid to him by the plaintiff as and for usurious inter est as alleged. PHINTirF'S CLAIM. The plaintiff claims that In each of the months of July, August, September, October. November, December, January, February and March in 1894-95, she paid to the defendant, upon the sum of $24.75 loaned and paid her by defendant, thefium of $2 25, being thereunto required by the defendant, the same lwing usurious interest Mr. Bailey intimated mat any objections he might have to argue as to the Juris diction or the courtnvghtbemadeiuarrest of Judgment The justice then made out the venire for tlie jury, and it was agreed that thee ase shall be tritd at 1 30 p m to-day The plaintiff lias been ready since last Friday. There was Quite a crowd in court yester day, and among them some of the next de fendants in similar cases. The summons lias not jet been served on the manager of the Washington Mortgage Company. It was intended that the w nts should be returnable to-day at 3 p. m. but the constable had not been able to find Mr. Yennowiiio up to jesterday afternoon. TWO DISTRESSED LADIES. "We will luvettiat furniture by to-morrow at 12 o'clock." was the cruel ultimatum or an agent of the Capitol Loan Guarantee Company to two distressed ladies of this city 3 csierday There is a story m llm that vroiiid stir a Plolc The two ladies in question v. ere at The Times office last eening. One of them is the wife of a United States prieoncr, and the other is the mother ot the sorely distressed wife. Both have made a hemic struggle for existence, and there appears in The Times to-day an advertisement by winch they hope to be able to Gell a val uable piece of their personal property to make terms with the inexorable Shylock into whose hands they have fallen. A j ear ago latt May the husband or the complainant brought his family to Wash ington in the hope of securing a government job at $1,400 per annum. They brought with them a uorce and carnage and fur niture enough to furnish a hotiie with four teen rooms. Delay in securing the piomited employment caused the jcuug husband and wife to borrow from the Capitol Loan Company 200 en all their peiFonal prop erty last May a jear ago. They were charged for this indulgence $11.70 per month exclusiM' of the record fees and all that kind of thing. HUSBAND WAS IN TROUBLE. In October last the Luband got into trouble with the United States govern ment, having Tor some tare been working on a government Job that paid $150 a year, instead of $1,410, as expected. The arrest and imprisonment of the hus band were a shock that prostrated the wife, and she became desperately ill. The landlord caine down v,ith a heavy hand for the rent due, by which they Io3t all their furniture with a reservation of $300 worth nnd tho horse and cairingc. Then when in thcee desperate straits the Shylock company called on the wifo m her enfeebled condition, ard she made four separate nofs to cancel the debt winch, notwithstanding tho monthly payments, e to October amounted to mora than $200. Without a friend or a dollar the brave little -wire undertook to pay the notes. Her boarders decreased and at the time when she needed them most. She dis missed all tho help and she and her mother did all tho menial work. Threats of fore closure were made every week until at lasr thoy let the hoise go at a sacrifice of $30. Of this half went for rent, which is forty dollara a month, and half wiit on tho firat note. Since the sale of the horso their inability to pay has increased and the agent of the company insists on thn monoy to-day at noon or the furniture. The agent was told that they had been Wu Ub bill! & q uU 811 jOufcdoori I Lounges!' I Worth i I At I I While 100 last. I j g fASH. s fjflLLU-isJ 1 Cor. 7th and D Sts. N. W. trying to sell the carriage and would pay a part of the debt with the proceeds of the hale. Shylock appears, however, to be deaf to entreaty or appeal and is expected to be on hand to-day. If the furniture and carriage are taken, these two heart-broken people will not have a thing in tiie world lert. It was with much difficulty that the younger lady could tell her story yesterday artenioou, so hopeless to her appeared her case and her future. These two people have paid on the debt $75.50 aud are anxious to sell their car riage at a tacrlfice to keep tbe ballff from leaving them an empty house to inhabit and making them objects of charity, as they arenowobjertsofthedcepphteomruiseration. James W Bell, colored, a earpeulcr, and another victim, called at The Times oHice to tell his story. Eight months ago lie bor rowed $C0from the Capital Loan Guarantee Company. Since then he has paid in in terest $45.50 and still owes as much as ever. He "doesu't understand it at all," and has gone to see The Times attornejs.

INTENDED FOR POOR PEOPLE Cnuso ot Ttljrht and Humanity to Ho Championed Actively IJeroro tho Courts hy Counsellor in tho Im ploy ot Tho Times All Who Want nnd Deserve Help Will Got It. The Times bureau of legal advice was yesterday established. It is for the benefit of tlie people and the counsel aud protection of men "learned In the law" will be furnished by The Times without cost to all who apply. Two of the most important functions of a modern great daily rewspapcr are, first, that it furnish all the news of the world, at home and abroad, nnd, second, that it champion the cause of right, or the oppressed against oppressor, of the pcor against the powerful, and wage unrelenting warfare upon all violators., whether individuals or corporations, or public rights, trusts, or privileges. THie columus of The Times daily have ample evidence that it fulfils its first duty to its intelligent and ever-increasing con stituency. The local field or happenings la fully, concisely, and Li -tt, y laid before the rcade EVIDENCES OF FAITH. The best proof that The Times has not failed ij the second duty is found in the fact that under its merciless attacks Jackson City aud Rosiyn are fast crumbling away; the "DlviBion" was closed to little mes senger lads and other minora; Edmunds act violators havce been married free; the shj locks have been made to loosen their clutch on the needy; the gas barons have been put on Uie dctensiveiln fact,ihcre ever in the fields of labor, politics and morals, right has needed a champion and the people a defender and prosecutor, Tne Times has labored without fear or favor. In establishing a bureau of legal advice The Times believes it gives the latest and best evidence that it's heart is in the peo ple's cause . There's an old saj-Jng that "money makes the mill grind," and It is just as true of the legal machino as it is of the flour mill. OFTEN OF OPPRESSION. Law is not always justice, and tho man with wealth, the world over, can purchase brains and skill to defend his cause, too often of oppression, while the poor man Is ground between the upper and the nether millstones. If, now , thero are any in this city who wrongfully suffer from their fellow-man's act; if employes are injured by employers; if an individual is ground into the mire by a corporation; if pcoplo'a rights have been Invaded; if the law has been violated, and justice outraged. The Times will undertake to right the wrong and fight the fight. Let it bo understood, however, that The Times will not lend itself to any cause except the defense of principle and people People with axes to grind, petty spites to vent, or neighborhood ecandals to air, will not be heeded.

It had been arranged that a. baseball came would take place between the Troo'p ers and the "Trilby's, of ""Vmclsester. tins afternoon, bat tbe sudden downpour of ram which commenced about 2 o'clocfcand lasted till 5 effectually prevented the men from wnimrp a game from their hosts ia Win chester. Quite a clond of glocra was east over hi camp when it wsb announced that Qaarter niasted Sergt. Fred Spnnman bad re ceived a telegram announcing- tbe death, of his grandchild in Washington. He im mediately left for tbe city greatly to th regret of the eutire conimand. Hus absence will be quite apparent, for he is at all times and in ail places a most valuable man Tlit re is nothing he cannot do and nothing that he is not willing to do. Many of the men had an opportunity tosee the nianuer in wli.ca Winchester lire tt m panics turn out and fight a fire At ab ut 4 30 this afternoon tbe fire bells gave tlie alarm and it wes dsecovered that tl More of'Mr. Nulten on Water meet was burning FIXE FIRE FIGHTERS In a remarkably short time the Union Fire Company were on the spot, and in ten minutes the fire was extinguished, even before it was poss-ible for the other tym panies, quickly as they got to the i-pot, to get to woiK. The rivalry between the different fire companies is very great, and when they , sci iu mi; scene oi u lire iney are ucunu to get som exercise, even if the fire has been extinguished. Oue of the last com all danger was over, m playing water on top or the House, until the proprietor of the store, wringing bis bands, begged them to desist. "The Keneral" has sounded, the tvaprors are loaded, and "boots and Raddles" is ringing in the ears of tlie troopera, call ing upon thera to saddle their horses and leave Winchester, something that every man in the command regrets. It was in teresting to hear the remarks of the men showing their desire to. remain longer. Even the captain hated to go, but Wash ington must be reached by balnrday next, nnd therefore he determined that the sooner the leave-taking was over the better As the command marched through, the pripcipal business ard residence streets of the city preparatory to taking the road to Berrjvillo every one in the column was engaged in bidding farewell to the fnenda he had made. LEFT THEIR HEARTS. The citizens of Winchester hoped that th" leave taking was simply "Au revoir, I3.1t not good-bye " It is said that Lieut. Pil'bury, Lieut. Simmons and Gna Macias wore notably affected, as was evidenced by the rrequent application of their hand kerchief to their ejee. It is estimated that these troopers have left their hearts in Winchester. Th danco at Jordan Springs last night was a grand success, and was largely at tended by the beauty of Winches' er" ami vicinity. About ten of the troopers, in cluding Ll-uts. Beatty and Pilisbury, were th" lions of tl o evening. The haV.dson-e cavalry uniforms of the two good look ing officers made all the ladies worship at their feet, a homage ihich they received with Incoming grace and modesty. Tl.e captain, kindly recognizing the pleasure it arromed his two lieutenants to attend tho dance, reluctantly remained in camp and took charg" Hereof. It wa3 half past thre o'clock this morning when the happy troopTS returned, and the notes of rev eille at six o'clocst mod'' them almost wish th"y were not fioldiera. TENDER SCI'GEANT SIMMS. Srgt. Simms was the vittim of a rather funny joke at the hands of the irrepre'5 Mbl Gus Macias. A largo bus conveyed th" men and their ladies to the Sprirgs. Gus happened to ! near the sergeant, who a,ceomp.inid a beautiful Winchester lady. Gus has a land which is neither too small nor too boft. but h" managed to plae" it where the unsuspecting sergeant imagined it to be that of his Tnir partner. H" took it in bU own affectionately prfss'"'! it again and again, probablj mean ing to convey what his lips cculd i.ot express, until Gus turned to him and said. "Dug, if you are through with my hand I would liko to use it a little while my slf." The sergeant remained very quiet during the rest of the journey. It is only rair to say that th sergeant insists ho was quite aware of the fact that the hand ho was squeezing was that of Mactas. Farewell Winchester! It is safe to say th" President's Troop will be with yon again. Departmental Game To-dur.
