COLONEL AINSWORTH DENOUNCED Witnesses anil Clerks Much Excited, and Indulge In Threatening Language- Sen tlonal Evidence rrainised. Associated Press. Washington, . June 12. The Inquest over the bodies of the victims of the Ford's theatre accident began here to day. Colonel AInsworth, chief of the record and pension division, was pres ent. The first witness was Benjamin ReJss, who testified that, he had not seen the area roped off as dangerous inside the building. For several years he had heard rumors that the old building, particularly the rear part, which did not fall, was unsafe. Charles Troutman, a clerk, testified that he had been warned by J. W. Webb,v In charge of the first floor, not to approach the area of the floor roped off while the excavation was going on. No other warning of 'insecurity of the building was given. Smith Thompson, a clerk; testified that the messengers of Colonel AInsworth, stationed on .the stairway, had frequently notified the clerks with bated breath, that It was the colonel's orders that employes should walk on their tip-toes up and down the stair way. The witness was an engineer and examined- the building. There were no props where the excavation was going on. - He declared the feel ing of the clerks toward Colonel AIns worth one of abject fear. This afternoon there was an ex citing scene. Charles Barnes, " a brother of one of the men killed, walk ed forward, shook his fist in Colonel Alnsworth's face, shouting, "You mur dered my brother, and you shan't sit here Intimidating these witnesses." Colonel AInsworth Btarted to speak, when the excited clerka began shout ing for him to "sit down," "shut up," and the like, followed by cries of "Hang him!" "Hang him!" and the men sprang forward as if to execute the mandate. They were finally quiet ed, however, and the Inquest was ad' journed. A letter from Secretary Lam on t was read at the inquest giving the assur ance that no clerk need fear dismissal on account of his testimony. " A number of the clerks testified that they felt the building Insecure, but they were afraid to protest against working in it for fear of losing their positions. Before. a witness was al lowed to proceed, B. H. Warner, one of the Jurors, suggested to the coroner that the episode showed the existence of a , feeling that would best be si lenced by the withdrawal of the party against whom It was directed. Loud applause followed Warner's remarks, and Dr. Shaffer whispered a request to Colonel AInsworth tow Ithdraw. He refused to do so, however, and the cor oner said he had no right to exclude him. Juror Hanvey said he had been told by a dozen clerks that they were afraid to testify, and would have re fused to do so but for the letter of the secretary of war, stating that no clerk need fear dismissal for his testimony.- Ross Perry, the representa tive of Colonel AInsworth, arose and his first word was the signal for the most exciting Incident of the day. But ler Fitch, an old, white haired clerk, started the trouble, "sit down," he shouted, "you are an outsider and have no right here. I protest against out siders speaking here." "Sit down, sit down," echoed his fel low clerks. .., Fitch cried out something about "murder," , and the words were ech oed from every part of the hall. The clerks were on their feet trying to make speeches, as though a public meeting was being held. Morgan Spencer of Bridgeport. Ala., and a government clerk, called out to Colonel AInsworth: "You should be arrested for murder and not released on ball." Here the tempest broke In full furry. "Hang him," was shouted from , a dozen throats. Every man In the spec tator's seats arose at the cry of "hang him, hang him" and the turmoil grew louder. Colonel AInsworth sat cool and col lected. Somebody said after the up roar was over, that hla hand moved to his Inside eoat pocket and remained there. His features seemed absolutely Immovable. Perry remained standing, but made no attempt to quell the mob. Lieutenant Smiss was utterly power less to still the tumult. A mad rush had Just begun In the direction of Col onel AInsworth, when Warner rose and begged for order. The sight of him standing stopped the rush. "This outbreak of feeling must be suppressed," he said, "not by the ptrong hand of the law, but by the; hand of fraternity." Tie crowd fell in to Warner's way of thinking, and cried: "Yea, yes." He saw his advantage and made an appeal to let the question of allowing Colonel Alnsworth's remain ing be settled by cool heads. When he took his seat, however, there were mora threatening murmurlngs, and Dr. Shaffer quickly adjourned the Inquest until 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, at the First precinct police station. Department clerks stood about the hall talking excitedly 'over the ' Incident. Colonel AInsworth sat In his chair for a minute and then, walked out of the building, entered a carriage and quick ly drove away amid angry expressions from the crowd. When the hall was emptied, In exolted language the clerks continued, and finally Old Butler Fitch mounted the entrance steps and pro posed itn Indignation meeting, Immedi ately; ), Smith Thompson was elected chairman of the meeting, and de nounclatlon of Colonel AInsworth and those who Justified his course were In dulged In. A committee was appointed to wait upon the president against the proposed Becret investigation at the police station, and urged the suspen sion of Colonel AInsworth pending the Investigation. Subsequently it was said the inquest would be resumed tomorrow In the same hall, but under better police ar rangements. Judge Jery Wilson, vol unteered his services to represent the clerks, at the inquest tomorrow. THEFORD'S THEATRE ACCIDE.NT. Washington, June 12.
