alderman assured him when he (Mer
rm) look out a license for his saloon
there was no danger of the pool rooms
being closed. He voted for and sus
tained ;ht measure from the very first,
and this made Merritt exceedingly
wrathy. One word brought on another,
and many unpleasant things were said
by both men. Finally Merrilt remarked:
"It seems that you don" t keep your
pledges here auy better than you did in
This remark caused all the hot blood
in the little aldermau's be ing to rush to
bis lieati, and lie immediately "mixed
up," as they say in volsar parlance.
Trie result of ibis mixing iip was that
Merritt got a black eye, and now the
two gentlemen do not speak to each
other as they pass by. The reference to
Indiana has M.nne personal significance
iv which the public is not interested.

TRIAL. STILL IN PROGRESS.
The State's Witness on the Stand
Most of the Day— He Tells of
His Trip Around the Country .
and IJow the Money Was
Spent — Holbrook Minus His
Mr. Holbrook. the elderly gentleman
who cut sucn a prominent caper in the
recent trial against the Chamberlain-
Zublin combination, was one of the
interested spectators at the Floyd trial
yesterday afternoon. He is a stock
holder in the Hank of Minneapolis, and
naturally interested in the disclosures
being made by Scheig. Many people in
the audience knew him: they remem
bered him from the other trial. It was
noticeable that he wore no diamonds.
The famous tlolbrook diamond will go
down to posterity. Scheig was on the
stand the greater portion of the day,
and Mr. Byrnes in his cross examina
tion brought him around the continent,
over to England and back again. The
witness showed a disposition during the
day to make it appear as badly as pos
sible for the Floyds. He never missed
an opportunity to declare the boys
never had any money, and that he had
it all. He spent his money like a
•prince, and the others fed upon him.
When court adjourned in the evening
fully nl ty women hung about the court
room for a chance to see the witness as
! he parsed out to the jail, his hands
manacled and his head hanging down,
probably from shame.
During the forenoon session at the
instance of Mr. Byrnes he continued his
journey across the country in company
with the Floyds. He said:
"We went from Nashville to Guthrie,
Ky.. on the train and stayed there one
day. We took in the town and bought
a lot of champagne at $5 a bottle. I
can't say for sure, but we spent a good
deai of money. 1 wanted to forget the
plight 1 was in, and drank a good deal or
brandy. All our things were in a freight
car and we slept there. When we cot
to Chattanooga we remained there three
or four days, and spent most pf our
time in sporting around. Frank was
with me most of the time."
"Now, Phil," asked Mr. Byrnes, ."do
you remember being at a sporting
house there and showing your 'wad.'
currency or money, and handing it
around to the girls to count and han
"Yes. I did show it to the girls, but
they did not handle it."
"Where was it that revolver was shot
off and Frank came near beine killed?"
■'In. one of those sporting places.
There was no danger of Frank being
killed, for the bail didn't go nearghim.
The revolver went off accidentally as 1
pulled it out ol my pocket-"
Scheig then told of unloading the "out
fit" from the freight car in the Louis
ville & Nashville yards and how they
hitched up and drove through the city,
after which they started out into the
"Did" you ride at the head of the pro
cession as you went through tne town
and blow a horn ?" asked Mr. Byrnes.
"No sir, 1 didn't blow a horn. 1 rode,
however, with the outfit."
"Did you have a horn?"
"Yes, I think we had a horn. We
attracted considerable attention, for we
had been drinking some. There were
two of us on horseback, and we had a
mare from the stock yards with us. We
had two wagons, one of which was
covered. We also had five hunting
"After leaving Chattanooga, were
you arrested at Kockford, and what
"\es. I was arrested for carrying con
cealed weapons, but after explaining
matters to the mayor he remitted the
fine. When we got to Oakdale we went
out for a hunt but found no game."
'•Lou left the party at Oakdale, did
"Yes. sir. He went to Charleston to
arrange for our South American trip.
1 don't remember how much money 1
gave him. He remained away three or
four days and sent me several telegrams,
one of which 1 answered. 1 destroyed
oi;e of me telegrams: which one 1 don't
"A\ hat did Lou say when he got
"He said we would have to go to New
York to sail for Suuth America. While
in Oakdale we gave the impression that
we were a party of bloods from Pitts
burg out for a hunt. We went back to
Chattanooga by rail. Lou went with the
freight, but Frank and 1 went sporting
and got left. We met Lou at Atlanta."
"You started from Atlanta on your
march to your sea?"
"We didn't march. We took a freight
train for Charleston, and when we got
there we unloaded. When this had
been done we went out to Hibernian
park and remained there about a week.
The friends we had met came out to see
us. A police officer also came out to
see if we were going to have a prize
"A\ c satisfied them that we were not
goiug to have a prize fisht. I told him
we were out on a bunting trip, that my
name was Mansfield and that we came
from Pennsylvania. That evening Lou
and 1 went in and talked with the chief
of police awhile. He showed us his
horses and wagons. We told him the
same story about our trio."
"Did the girls ever come out to see
"Not there. When we stopped about
seven miles from there two ladies came
out. AYe had never seer, them till they
came. AYe had pictures taken of the
camp and the girls. The Floyd-boys
usually took the pictures."
He identified a package of photo
graphs,thiee of which he said were taken
while he was with the party.
"The pictures were developed in
Charleston and in New York while the
party was waiting tbere. 1 don t know
whether Sarony printed the pictures or
not," said Scheig.
A lot of testimony concerning the ar
rival of the party in New York was
gone over, and Mr. Byrnes asked:
"Did Frank want to find his mother in
"He wanted to telephone to his moth
er, but 1 told him not to. We were in
New York two days and a half, and
staited for Brazil about 3 o'clock Nov.
1. The accident happened at about 8
o'clock. We remained there all night,
and the next clay we were towed back
to port. We stayed on board the boat
for two or three day?, and the boys went
up town each day. Frank went up once
or twice and Lou three times. We did
not send lor the Minneapolis papers.
Wheu the boys came back they finished
dinner £nd then went up on board while
I went to the slate room to play the
zither. Pretty soon they came down,
and Lou a&ked me how I'd like to go to
Europe. I told him i didn't want to
go. He said the detectives were
on our track and would soon catch
up to us. He said 1 and " Frank
should go to Europe. Lou said that they
wonidu't molest him. They showed me
a clipping from a New York paper of
about a dozen lines or so. We then
looked up the sailing of the ships for
Europe, aud picked on one which left at
7 o'clock the next morning. After 1
gave him tne $100 to buy the tickets
there were no more money transactions
between us. 1 handed him a certificate
of deposit for 51,000. w!:ich I indorsed
over to him, but he didn't want to keep
it. and returned it to me."
Mr. Byrnes then took another tack,
"Did Frank or Lou tell you to steal

uer, and in the afternoon Scheig was
told to resume his testimony concerning
the time spent in New York. He did
so and recounted the going on board the
German steamer at Huboken aud the
experiences on board en route. They
all went as steerage passengers.
"Do you remember the day you
reached Southampton?" asked Mr.
"Yes. sir. We were arrested on the
boat. Officers came on board the boat
and asked me if my name was Manning.
1 nidn't answer, but when he showed
me my picture and asked me if my name
was Scheig I told him it wa?. They
asked Fratik if his name <vas Frank
Floyd and he said it wasn't. He gave
them the name he shipped under. There
was a scene on board the English boat
when Frank tried to tear up a letter or
"Wasn't it a cablegram?"
"1 don't know. He didn't say any
thing to me about it."
"Did you meet Mr. Giilig there?''

Nordeen's Anti-i'ool Room Ordi-
nance Made So Yesterday.
Nordeen's anti-pool room ordinance
became a law yesterday morning, the
mayor's signature being attached, and
it is understood it will go into effect at
once. The mayor held a consultation
with the proprietors of the various pool
rooms yesterday afternoon, and if .all
signs do not fail, tr.eir places will be
closed before the week is up. It is
understood that A. D. Smith, the vvell
knowu attorney, has been retained liy
the pool room owners to test the con
stitutionality of the ordinance, and it
may be the whole affair will be thrown
into the courts.
It is claimed by some of the aldermen
that there was "an irregularity in the
passage of the ordinance. It is claimed
the irregularity appears in the record
ing of the vote on Aid. Long's motion
to recommit the ordinance to the
special committee. Aid. Long, ln
geuuutt, Jenniugs and Rand arc
recorded in the official proceedings
a 9 voting nay on this question, and
the aldermen named, say that they
voted yea. Assistant City Clerk Sturt
zel. who acted in Mr. Hanky's absence,
however, states that his record of the
vote is perfectly correct, and his state
ment is endorsed by numerous of the
aidermen. It is probable that the alder
men will this evening attempt to change
the minutes of the last meeting in this
respect, with the intention of bringing
the ordinance again before the council,
when they hope to secure enough votes
to defeat the measure.

To ike Publishers of "THE MAGIC CITY:'
. ; Dear Sirs:— l desire to express to you both my admiration and astonishment
at the marvelous beauty of your grand publication. It surpasses any work of the
printers' and engravers' art that I have ever had the pleasure of beholding. The pho
tographs in natural colors are a revelation to me. They are beautiful beyond all con
ception. Your book is rightly named "THE MAGIC CITY," and lam sure it will
receive from the intelligent people of your country the hearty recognition to which it
is entitled by its superlative merits.
It was originally my intention to accept the very kind invitation of President
Harrison to visit your great World's Fair last summer, but a sea voyage is always quite
fatiguing and occasionally dangerous, and I, therefore, hesitated until .your beautiful
book was announced, when I at once realized that it would be more desirable, and cer
tainly far more instructive, than a personal visit. Hence, I abandoned all idea of
going to the Fair, and am well pleased with my conclusion, for your splendid book
gives me a permanent view of the great Exposition in all its details, as I sit in my
library. lam particularly well pleased with your presentation of the world's art, as
represented at the Fair; and also with the curious and interesting types of the Midway
Plaisance, both of which I observe you have wisely made special features of "THE
MAGIC CITY." ,
With congratulations and good wishes, I beg to subscribe myself
THE PRINCE ADMIRING "THE MAGIC CITY."
We desire to say. by way of explanation, that th 9 above letter was not actually
written by the Prince's own hand, bat it correctly expresses his sentiments re
garding "THE MAGIC CITY."
