Exposed in Courl Yesterday.
JUDGE WHITE'S SEVERE REMARKS.
The Eesnlt of a Complete Trial in an Old

of All the
County and State
Revelations were made in the Criminal
Court yesterday touching the manner in
which liquor cases hate been settled in
Aldermen's offices. They caused Judge
"White to make some pretty severe remarks.
Arguments are still being made in various
cases in the Supreme Court.
Iu the Criminal Court yesterday, before
Judge "White, Charles SIcClure, Isaac
.Brown and Thomas Carney were on trial for
conspiracy. The defendants were alleged to
have brought a suit against a Mrs. Begina
Lies, of James street, Allegheny, for belling
liquor without a license and causing tbe suit
to come before Alderman Porter and again
before Alderman Xo'an. Before tbe bearing
Sirs. Lies was told by 'Squire Porter the case
could be fixed by seeing Constable Carney, who
told her it would take SlUO to settle it. It
never came to a beating, and the presumption
was that it had been so settled.
In charging the jury Judge "White was very
severe on aldermen in general for settling suits
in that way in their offices, and Aldermen
Porter and Nolan in particular. He said such
action was in violation of their oaths and pros
tituted their offices. It tended to induce suits
to be brought on frivolous charges for the pur
pose of extorting money from people unac
quainted with tbe law. Iniquity was added to
miquit to prosecute tnem and settle for a
consideration. The jury was out but about live
minutes w hen they returned with a verdict of
In the same court Joseph Chnsticeveiz, of
the boutbstde, was tried and found guilty of
celling liquor without a license and on Sunday.
Surmg his trial he made the statement that he
had given 100 to John Co'letL an ex -police
officer, to have the case settled. Judge White
called District Attorney Porter's attention to
it and said Co-lett must be indicted. It is said
Coslett is in Canada.
Win. Fisher, an old colored man. plead cnilty
to selling liquor in a prohibitory district. His
home is in NcwicUey, and in answer to Judge
White's question he told tbe names of several
young men of that town who bought of him.
He was not an extensive dealer, having bought
but about five or eight gallons of whisky in the
past tw o years. He bongbt it bv the quart bot
tle and sold it by the drink. He told the
Judge he could not pay a fine or even the costs,
afld the Judge told him he would tuint about
Ins case until Saturday, until which time
Fisher could go back to jail.
George ilcLogen and Win. Werner were
tried lor assault and battery on J. A. Arm
strong. They were found not guilty and the
costs were divided. Frank liomnght plead
guilty to a charge of assault and battery and
was sentenced to the workhouse for one day.

A EAILE0AD COMPANY INDICTED.
The Inter-State Commerce Law
Tested In Minnesota.
St. Patjx. October 9. The Milwaukee
road has been indicted by the TJuited States
j .- ..-:-i.: -r .. s-...c.
grand jury for violations of the inter-State
commerce law, and the trial of the cause
will be of the greatest importance, testing,
as it will, the right of railroads to charge
higher rates to the interior towns than to
St Fanl and "Minneapolis. There is also
involved in the issue the question of hun
dreds of thousands of dollars revenue to the
railroads. It is said that Faribault, at the
instance of which town this indictment was
secured, pays to the railroads the sum of
5100.000 a year freight rates.
The "Soo" road was notindicted because
there was io case against it. It had only
shipped one consignment of alcohol at a low
rate and it did not appear that it was not
ready to ship all the alcohol it could get at
the same rate. The trial of the Milwaukee
case will demonstrate the right of railroad
companies to ignore the long and short haul
clause cf the inter-State law, in instances
where it effects the roads revenue.

The Hamilton Woman Bays Her Rich
Husband Borrowed Back
MORE MONEY THAN HE GAVE HEE.
The One New Phase of the Prisoner's Story,
From Her Cell.
JOSH MANN, DEE EUE0PEAH EBCOET,
Is SH Held Accountable, for the Things He His Said of
There is only one distinctly new feature
or allegation brought out by "Nellie Bly"
in her Tuesday's interview with Mrs. Era
Hamilton in the latter's prison cell at Tren
ton. That is the claim that rich Mr. Ham
ilton gave his wife no more money than he
borrowed back from her.
A greal deal of pompous circumstance
and detail was given by the World yester
day in its publication of an interview with
Mrs. Eva Hamilton in the penitentiary at
Trenton. Mrs. Hamilton there told "Nel
lie Bly," as she had before told reporters
and officials, that Baby Beatrice was her
own; that she really loved Hamilton; that
Josh Mann and the Swintons were the
cause of all her troubles, and that Mr.
Hamilton, rich as he is, had never given
her more money than he had borrowed back
from her. The latter is the only distinctly
new feature in the interview, and this is
how Mrs. Hamilton told it:
"Mr. Hamilton claims he gave me 510,000.
That is not true, I will tell you how it hap
pened. He and a friend of his went out the
road with (she again gave the names).
They stopped at a road-house and they all
drank too much wine, and when Mr. Hamilton
came back, ho told me all about it and what
had happened, which was something dreadful.
I got angry and we
HAD A QTJABBEIi,
and I threatened to go to .the hus
band of tbe lady (giving his'name') and tell him
the whole thing. Mr. Hamilton begged me
not, and said if I promised never to tell be
would give mo $10,000. I promised. He
gave me 9,000, which I intended to
pay for a house I had bought at Passaic
Bridge, N. J. In a few days he asked
me for $6,000 back. I gave it. Afterward be
borrowed 4,800 of my own money, and still
aeain 3,250. He had never paid tbe other he
borrowed back, so this time I said to him: 'Ray
Hamilton, you will promise to-day to pay this,
but to-morrow you will deny every word of it.
so I won't give you a cent unless you give me a
receipt to that effect'
"He wrote out: 'I owe Eva Hamilton bor
rowed money, etc' This receipt is with my
papers in the Atlantic City Bank. At three
different times after this be borrowed 8150, 1100
and J150 from me. He never paid one cent
back, and they have all been saying I was tak
ing his money from him.
"Mv diamonds tbey taiK about are only
worth SL500. Tbe majority of them I owned.
Mr. Hamilton gave me very few. Besides, I
have 52,700, all of which is in bonds and
mortgages except 900, which is on deposit in a
NO CHECK OK THE BOODLE.
"Mr. Hamilton, as I have told you, never
raised any objections to my giving money to the
Swintons. I kept Mrs. Swinton, Josh Mann,
Mrs.'Swinton's granddaughter (Carrie Swinton,
or Collens, as her right name is). I kept them
all, because they threatened me. At
last Kate Collens, Mrs. Swinton's
daughter, found out abont Mr. Hamilton
and she also made me pay her money.
When I went to Jersey they all went along
and lived with me, and Mr. Hamilton knew it
and did not object. Josh Mann got knocked
down with my horse, which was very vicious,
while in Jersey. He struct on the back of his
bead and lay insensible for almost 24 hours.
When we returned to New York I took him to
Dr. Bull, Dr. Paine and half a"dozen other doc
tors. He has never been right since that, and
should not be held responsible for what he says.
"One year ago last spring I told Mr.Hamilton
I wanted to go to Europe. He gave me $1,000
to go on. I told him I wanted to take Josh
Mann for company, and he said it was all right
r I went in May. 1 returned from Europe sooner
than I had expected and1 went up to tqe mount-
ains, still taking Josh with me. September 1

An Aliened Plan to Elevate Bevenne Com
missioner Mason to tho Vacant Pen
sion Bureau-Green B. Bnum
to Get His Old Job.
rtIICIAI. TELXQBAX TO TUB DI6PAT0II.1
Washington, October 9. There is a
new "combination" under discussion in con
nection with the pension commissions rship.
It involves tlie transfer of Internal Eevenue
Commissioner Mason to the Pension Bureau,
and the appointment of Green B. Eaum to
his old place at tho head of the Internal
Bevenne Bureau. Ever since he resigned,
in the spring of 1888, General Eaum has
been engaged in the practice otthe law here,
making a specialty of the class of cases aris
ing in the liquor and tobacco trades, with
which he became quite iamiliar daring his
term as commissioner. He is aEepublican,
of the ultra-partisan stripe, and at one time
was supposed to divide the political owner
ship of the State of Illinois with John A.
Logan. What drove htm temporarily ont
ol politics was his- yearning to be a Benator
at the same time that Mr. Cullom was seized
with a similar fancy.. He broke with Lo
gan, also, on the question op State boss-ship.
There are plenty of persons within his own
party, as well as without, who refer with
severity to the way he used to marshal the
whole force of his bureau, and the distillers
beside, to the support of his sjate ia a con
vention. Mr. Mason, who seems now to have
taken General Eaum's place in this pro
gramme, distinguished himself a few weeks
ago while on a visit to his home State.West
Virginia, by making a speech to the old
soldiers which, even Corporal Tanner would
have found it hard to outstrip in radicalism.
He proposed to get rid of the surplus by
shoveling the money out of the Treasury
into the pockets of the veterans under a
service pension system, so that every man
of them should have his share. When your
correspondent inquired of him whether this
speech embodied the President's ideas on
the subject, he answered:
"It was my own speech, sir, not the
President's. I commit nobody to those
sentiments but myself." I
He added that he had held no communi
cation with the President about the speech,
but did not venture to assert whether it was
or was not in accord with what he knew to
be the policy of the administration. If he
goes into the Pension Bureau it will be safe
to prepare for a revival of the era of

- If words, instead p? actions, decide tbe merit of Make or mcrciaa- ' (

cheap Johnism brazenly claim to have the finest and most stylish g--ffj?

per cent, actually nave tne, "'gair- to announce tneir prices the fewest

The people, however, are not to be hoodwinked by higB-soaading
pretensions of unscrupulous advertisers. They very well know that
Kaufmanns', although they are'not given to "blowin' their own horn"
continually, serve the interests of their customers so much the better.
And nowhere is the truth of this more apparent than in Kaafmanns
grand bargains of Men's Overcoats. Read the following few:
MEN'S GOOD OVERCOATS at $7 50.
