tiona have fairly crowded themwlve
into the I.ihi day of the trial ; there had
hecn aome of the moat dramatic icenei
ttliich ever stirred up the diny little
court room, reeking an it was with the
memories of celebrated eases; there was
an approach to erHoiial collision between
Judge Wilaon and Attorney Charles Stoll
during the nianilicientclotiinir argument
of the WivhinKton lawyer, followed by
talk of a duel, and Judge Bradley, In

The jury retired at 3:03 p. m. The
first ballot was taken on the mertg of
the caHe, leaving out of contmleralion the
qut-Mioa of damages. It resulted in
eleven votes for a verdict fur the plaintiff.
Thereupon the dissenting gentleman
was figuratively cornered by bis col
leagues and lor some time was argued
with. In tjienkirig of this discussion
afterward, foreman Cole said tliat the
jurymen displayed fully as great familiar
ity with poinJi of the arguments as did
They laid the cane fully before the obdu
rate jurymen, calling for grounds on
which his belief was based and finally
overcome him by mere logic.

amount sued for, fM.OOO, should be

and punish Mr. Breckenridge sufficiently.
Each juror wrote the amount be con-
holered, j tnt, upon a slip of paper and the
balance being struck, the amount ranged
from to ')0,000. and $15,000, was the
average and this Inst amount was given
the plaintiff. The defense moved for a

Washington, April 12. The secretary
of the treasurer has received notice thai
about $2,000,000 in gold coin would be
required for export next Saturday, about
half of which would be drawn from the
treasury and an equal amount from the
New York banks. It is the opinion of
the treasury officials that this shipment
is the beginning of the usual spring ex
portation and they are likely to continue
lor some tune. This fact, however, is
not regai ded as a cause for alarm. The
net gold in the treasury at the close of
business to-dav was $10i,0tr,5'i9. Last
year at this time the gold exiwrtations
were about normally Heavy, reacumg
$19,148,fH'3 during April, and $lti,0U,S15
in May. In June they dropped to $2,
711,22(5 and in July to $174,212. The
financial and business conditions in
Europe as well as in the United States
have materially changed for the better,
and, in consequence of this, the predic
tion is confidently mado that the expor
tation 8 will reach only a fraction of what
they were one year ago. England and
France are now well supplied with gold
and Russia is not a buyer. Austria is
the only Kuropean nation that is making
any special effort to secure gold, and
with these conditions prevailing the out
look is not bad.

stage, but were not molested. One of
them would try to look around until the
robber threatened to blow his head off,
then he attended to his own business.
The other passensers were all frightened
fearing his foolishness would get them
into trouble. The robber worked very
coolly and seemed to le well acquainted
with the names of parties and locations
as he told Fred Wesson, the driver, to
tell the ag;nt at Millon, that be had
taken the silver and to have the box
fixed at his expense. Just as thestsge
was leaving, he said: "Fred, I will see
you in Angels in a day or so, and we will
take a drink on this."

authorities, civil and military, are be
ginning to take active interest in the
arrival of Coxey'a army. As the com
monweal approaches and stories of de
tachments from various cities are being
authenticated, the officers bein to look
for the settlement of a difficult problem
to be solved by the authorities. The
question is, w hat will be done wilh the
Coxeyites after they diilmnd. The dis
trict commissioners had prepared a list
of statutes under which Coxey and liis
men could be arrested and dealt with.
Three are 450 men in the local police
force, but of course only a fraction of
this body would be available to handle
the Coxeyites and the probabilities are
that it would be necessary to call on the
militia for assistance There are KS00
troops so well drilled that they could be
massed to inarching order in two hours

Sam bakcisco, April 16. There is
$15,000,000 lying idle in San Francisco
commercial banks, for which bankers
can find no use. This is said to be the
largest surplus that has been known for
many years, and it is still growing.
This money is offered for loan as low as
four per cent, on first class security. All
collateral is scrutinized more closely
than was the case a year ago and unless

Tbe Most Uorgeons Treasures of Arabia.
What a splendid picture is brought
before your mind! You read the glow
ing description of the secret treasures
which the genii of the ring spread before
Aladdin's gaze. You perused this fav
orite story of yours in "Arabian Nights"
when a boy, and your imagination
pictured brilliantly for you everything
that the words suggested.
That was when yon were a boy. To-
dav, possibly, you are unable to do it.
Shall we tell you the reason why ? Most
probably because your liver is sluggish,
and as a consequence vou suffer from
sick headache, dizziness, and constipa
tion. Do you want it to cure all these
troubles permanently, make your liver
active, your imagination lively, and in
general enjoy things as you did when a
boyT All you have to do is to use Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, purely vegeta
ble, perfectly harmless, the smallest
and easiest to take, and they
are the cheapest because they are
guaranteed to give satisfaction, or your
money is returned. What more can you
is constantly turning the world, keeping
it in commotion. Its vigorous exercise
keeps the whole hotly active. But it's
the constant going on that wears.
You've no time to rest, no time to eat,
and hardly time to live. It's miserable
living at the best. Constantlndigestion,
Biliousness and Constipation. The body
crank needs attention. Keep the liver
active with Simmons Liver Regulator
and you can go as much as you please.

(Jons Eminent Jurist Dead
Great R. R. Htrlke.
Wasiiinotos, April 17. The house to
day has by an oerwhelming vote decided
to Adopt the quorum counting rule,
which for all practical purposes is the
same as that which speaker Reed, of
Maine, inaugurated during the 51st con
gress. It won lor ttiem a world wide
reputation. Neither nndue excitement
or tumultous scenes marked the quashing
of the oIJ barriers.
Reed and the republicans generally
are in a nappy humor over the victory
they have achieved. Those who expected
Reed would tackle and jibe bis political
adversaries over their inconsistency were
disappointed. Only fifteen minutes on
a side were allowed for debate and Reed
consumed his portion with an arrange
ment of the democrats. He, gxd
naturedly. distributed most of it to those
democrats wLo desired to oppose the
Wben the rote was taken forty-seven
democrats were against it, but it secured
every republican vote and carried by a
vote of 212 to 47. The populists did not
vote on the proposition.
The adoption of tbis rule today taken
in conjunction with the decision to en
force the old law of 1846 to dock tbe
salaries of all members absent, save on
account of sickness, will it is thought
put an end forever to parlimentary ob
itruction. After the adoption of the rule it only
required a few minutes to straighten out
be parliamentary tangle which the
douse has been in for some days, and
the house then quietly proceeded with
the consideration of the consular and
Big Gum Tried.
Washington, April 12. Naval ordin
ance office rs'fi red two shots from the big
tbirteen-incb gun at Indian Head prov
ing grounds today, which proved to their
complete satisfaction that the gun is
probably onsnrpaiweil for alt practical -purposes.
The object of firing the great
gun today was to test the nickle steel
projectiles, each weighing more than
half a ton. The target was a twelve
inch nickle steel plate, and both sheila
went entirely through it, one of them
breaking to pieces and the other remain
ing intact after it bad cleared the plate.
The Carpenter shell was unhurt bv the
operation of rushing its half-ton mass
through a foot of solid steel, which is ex
actly what the ordnance officials have
been looking for as a means of testing tbe
seventeen-inch armor for the battle-ships.
Today's testa were, therefore, only pre
liminary to the trials for the acceptance
or condemnation of the heaviest armor
plates yet made in tbis country.
David Dudlty Field u Dead.
New York, April 13. David Dudley
Field died today. He was born in Had
dam, Conn., in 1S05. He was graduated
from Williams college in 1825, and was
admitted to the bar in 1823. In 1847 he
was appointed a commissioner by the
New York legislature, and formulated a
penal and ciyil code that had been
adopted by manv states. In 18U5 he
completed a political and civil code. He
prepared an international code in 1S73.
He was acknowledged tbe foremost jurist
of the country. He was a brother of
Cyrus W. Field, of Atlantic cable fame;
Stephen J. Field, United supreme judge,
and Henry M. Field, the famous clergy

Helena, April 13. The strike on the
tireat Northern system was peacefully
inaugurated today at noon. At the
stroke of 12 the men all left their posts of
duty and gathered at the station to
await the appearance of the east Wind
passenger train at 12:25. As soon as
the train stopped, two men, delegated
for that purpose, uncoupled the mail car
from the coaches. The baggage and
express was all taken from the car, and
then the engine and mail cars were
ready to proceed eastward.
