With Revolver la Bis Hand.
St. Louis, Ma, Deo. 15. A riot oc
curred in the first district police court
yesterday, during which Judge Thomas
II Pcabody, on the bench, eat with his
revolver in hi hand, while Attorney J.
D. Storta, with drawn weapon, de
nounced the judge in unmeasured
terms because of a decision he declared
unfair to hi clients. The attorney
was defending fonr women charged
with being questionable characters, and
the Judge declined to continue their
cases for more than one day. This
angered Storts, who drew his revolver
and launched into lurid denunciation
of the judge. The judge drew hi re
volver and called for officers to throw
the attorney out. The officers re
sponded, and after a battle, during
which furniture was demolished, the
lawyer was placed behind the bar.
The trial was taken up and the wo
men fined heavily.
Last night while Judge Peabody
waa about to enter hi home on I'age
boulevard, two men, supposed to be
friends of Attorney (storts, sprang up
on him and began assaulting him
with their fists. The judge attempted
to defend himself, but was overpow
ered. He was being worsted when hi
cries attracted a private watchman,
who ran to hi rescue and the assail
ant disappeared. The judge wa
bruised, but not seriously injured.
Referring to tho trouble in the
court the judge said: "When Storts
made that charge at me with his re
volver, of course I was prepared for
him and I would have fired if it had
not been that there were a dozen per
sons behind him. I considered that
my life was in Jeopardy and I meunt
to shoot at the first opportunity."
As there is bitter enmity between
Attorney Storts and the judge, it 1
feared there may be more serious

Dr. Hyde, Ex-Police Surgeon ot
Kansas City. Arrested.
He Is a Demonstrator of Anatomy at the
Dolversltr Medical College Police Bar
Negroes Engaged With Him Have
Told AIL
Kansas Crrr, Deo. 16. Dr. IS. C
Ilyde, formerly police surgeon, one of
the 'demonstrators of anatomy ' at the
University Medical college, was ar
rested soon after noon to-day for grave
robbing. T. B. Carter, the negro jan
itor at the college, was arrested at the
same time. The charge Ilyde
is taking the body of Michael Kelly
from its grave at St. Mary' cemetary
last fall, but the polloo say they have
evidence to convict him with other
grave robberies.
The police have hinted si
fcsslon of Ham McClain,
who, with Charles 1'erry,
grave of Lenbra Todd in
the con
ie negro,
robbed tho
cemetery last Saturday night, that a
prominent physician was implicated
In the recent grave robberies, and
that as soon as tho evidence could be
gathered together ho would be ar
rested. What with "sweating" and
the best elforts of the detective,
ilie police have succeeded in accum
ulating evidence which they say
will disclose au organized gang of
irave robbers that have been respon
ilble for all the ghoulish work done ia
Kansas City for years. Besides the
warrant for Dr. Ilydo, others were
issued for Charles Perry, Sam McClain
mil T. It. Carter, the negro janitor at
the University Medical college. Carter
was under urrost but was released
Monday afternoon. He was let go to

Todd, a young uegress, was the inci
dent that led to the arrest of Dr. Hyde.
Charles Perry and McClain drove to
Woodiawn cemetery, Kansas City,
Kan., about midnight Saturday and
dragged the body of the young negress
from it grave. They delivered it to
Carter.the negro janitor of the medical
college, and were dividing the 20 they
received when they were arrested in
Flynn's saloon on Independence ave
nue. The officers who arrested them
supposed they had captured some foot
pads, but when McClain broke down
and confessed to the grave robbery the
police began at once to ferret out the
plot, with the result that they now al

dence against Dr. Hyde and others.
Declsrei Ha Must Either Resign From
the Army or Congress.
Washington, Dec. 15. Representa
tive Joseph W. Ualley, leader of the
minority, has formally and publicly
opened his fight on Major General Joe
Wheeler of Alabama, one of the heroes
of Santiago and a member of the
House. Mr. lialley announces that
General Wheeler cannot remain in the
army and vote and act as a member of
Congress. The constitution, says Mr.
lialley, clearly prohibits a member of
Congress from rccepting any ofllce un
der the United States while serving his
term, and this being true, General
Wheeler must resign from Congress or
from the army.
