Stockwell against Flo Darling ol the Windsor rooming house was called before Judge Kennan this morning. All the forenoon was consumed In a sparring match between the attorneys'for the Windsor's proprie tress and for the plaintiff. Nuzum & Sullivan were arguing for a demurrer and Winston was making a strong plea for an In junction against the house. Court was adjourned until 2 o'clock this afternoon without coming to any understanding. Thfft afternoon the ease took a different direction and the defend ants tried to show that Stockwell was merely an instrument In the game, that he was put up by others who were desirous of antagonizing the Interests of their client. They desired to give the coutl the Im pression that money was being used to gain this end. The testimony was of a sensa tional character and a large at tendance listened with much inter est to yie clever arguments of the able attorneys. Flo Darling Is on the stand as we go to press and seems to accept the situation with much ease. DOES A KIC*K WIPE OUT AN INSULT? Question Which Arises in French Affairs of Honor.

Harrow, Lloyd and Presi dent John Mitchell with his private Stenographer, Miss Morris, arrived at the New Willard hotel at 9:30 this morning.

The Marquis de Dion, the famous atltomobilist, read an article writ ten by ii. Oeraull Richard In La Pe tite Republic, which reflected upon him. Meeting the author jusi out side of the chamber of deputies, he Hung his gauntlet at htm ami re ceived v Mcl; in return. The noble marquis sent his Beconds to the journalist, but the latter, contrary to etiquette in such matters, insist ed that it would be rather silly to fight, us the kick which be had ad ministered was considered by him to have wiped out the insult he had recelv cd. Al last M. de Marquis' seconds convinced M. Qerault Richard that | he had been insulted, an I the fight came .iff.

Richard's arm was so badly ■ punctured that It actually bled.

He bas also taken a five-year lease of the interment location In the Protestant cemetery, the body to bo encased in v metal casket and probably removed to America at a future date. Rydzewskl, tho accused Russian whom all Rails seems anxious to befriend, stated that Mrs. Gore was killed through the dropping of v revolver to the floor. If this were true, unless Mrs. 'Gore wus leaning over directly to ward the spot where the weapon struck It is Impossible that the shot should have taken a horizontal t course. It is evident that Americans in 'Pails believe these circumstances too coincident to place faith in them against the knowledge of |Rydiewski's infatuation and Jeal ousy for the dead woman. The Spokane Press. At 10 Mr. Macveagh arrived, looking very careworn. He said that the strain of the examination of Mitchell had taxed his physical ability to tho utmost.
