Amonj' the witnesses called by the
prosecution in the Doggo case yesterday
was M. A. Uartigan , the Plattsmouth law
yer , who testified to iiaving hadiinumbcr
of conversations with Doggo after the
Horold failure. Although badgered badly
by Judge Mason , Mr. Ilartigan swore
positively that Doggo had told him aboul
the attempt to swindle the creditors , giv
ing him to understand that it was a
crooked transaction from the beginning.
Mr. Uartigan was followed by Tome
TUeyor , who in the rojo of interpreter ,
road several letters written by Doggo to
i Mrs. Ilerold , in which the story the latter
was to tell to avoid searching inquiry was
plainly set forth. The sensation in tlio
case , however , came at the afternoon scs
sion of the court when Horold was put
on the stand by the state , and gave the
details of the deal with tiic defendant
In the fall of 181 , Horold said , he tound
himself some sfM.OOO in debt , having a big
stock of goods on hand and bul little
.nionoy'to ' pay for them. At this juncture
Dr. Doggo whispered in his oar thai
nothing could be easier than to arrange a
scheme by which his creditors would bo
forced to a favorable settlement. In furtherance -
thoranco of this scheme Herold gave
Doggo notes , dating back to 1883 , to the
amount of $5,000 , on which ho confessed
judgment. . although at the time tlicro
was no debt or valid consiHorution. Will
these judgments in his name Doggo waste
to have taken possession of the stock
forced a satisfactory settlement with tlio
creditors , and divided tlio profits will
Horold. How the * job was frustrated al
readers of tlio UKB know , but what the

Pittsburk Dispatch : llerr Drlesbarh's
life was full of remarkable incidents , and
ho frcxucntly tribk ploajure in relating
incidents of his life. The following is in
his own words :
" 1 was exhibiting in the city of Haiti-
more. We were playing a piece in which
one of my tigers was to suddenly leap
from above upon me , as if to kill me. Al
ter it would jump onto me we would roll
around on tlio floor , lo all apiiearunccs
engaged lu mortal combat. This theater
in which we were playing had a largo
pit , and it was filled almost to Miflbca-
lion that evening with boys and men
This time the tiger jumped over my head
and WIB : liyinir lor the pit when 1 caught
him by the tail and hauled him back. 1
needn't tell you that standing room was
made mighty quick itrthat pit when they
seen Iho animal coming. They rushed
out poll-moll , screaming for mo lo hold
on to him. "
When J'Mwin Forrest was playing at
the JJowery theater in New lork , hi.-f
piece was followed by an exhibition of
lions by their trainer , llerr Driesbaeh.
During their stay there Forrest remarked
one day that he had never experienced
tlio emotion caused by fright that ho
was never scared in his life. Drie&bach
heard the remark and duo evening look
Forrest homo with him. They entered a
house , and after passing through long
uud dark passages , Driesbaeh opened a
door and said , "This way , Mr. l-orrost. "
As Forrest entered the door was slammed
behind him. .Forrest felt something
touch his leg in the darkness , and reach
ing down nis hand touched what ho
thought was a cat's back , which he gent
ly stroked. A rasping growl greeted Uio
motion and he saw two liory eyeballs
glaring at him. "Are you afraid , Mr.
Forrest ? " asked thu lion-tamer , who was
invisible in the darkness. Forrest replied ,
"Not a bit , " when the lion-tamer said
something and the growl deepened and
the backliugan to arch. Forrest hold out
for a few moments , when he exclaimed ,
"Now lot mo out , you infernal scoundrel ,
orTll break every bone in your body. "
The lion king kept him there and ho did
not dare to move a finger , while the lion
kopl rubbing against his Jog. Forrest
fmallv promised a champagne supper if
Driesbaeh would let him out , which was
done and the bet was immediately paid.
The lion king was to some extent a
practical joker. On one occasion when
no was exhibiting in Broadway , Now
York , he had entered a don of animals
and was going through the customary
performance one Saturday night when
lie was suddenly strelclica on his back
and a largo Brazilian liger was on his
throat and Iho oilier animals were wildly
dashing about Iho cage. Dncsbach's
voice was heard calling for aid in a
hoarse manner. The audience became
excited and women shrieked. Several
keepers ran lo Iho prostrate lion-tamer's
aid , and he was dragged from the cage.
He came from behind the cage with his
face and tights covered with crimson
liquid like blood , lie was _ hastily taken
up-stairs , where a physician , who was
convenionlly near , examined him and
said that although seriously injured , the
lion-tamer would live. The next day
Driesbach appeared on the streets , with
his face covered with strips of court-
plaster and his arm in a sling. His
friends were greatly excited over his cs-
cano , but their sympalhy turned to dis
gust when they learned that the gore on
the lion-tamer's face bad been squeezed
from u sponge filled with rose pink , and
that the affair was an advertising dodge
arranged by the management of tlio
While traveling along the Ohio river
season Herr Driesbaeh was wanted in
Cincinnati to give an exhibition at tlio
old Wood's Theatre. Ho was showing in
Zancsvillo when ho received a flattering
oiler by telegraph , and ho accepted.
Hastoly caging a tiger in a ordinary
store box he proceeded to the Ohio river
and alarlcd for Cincinnati by boat. Ho
registered himself as Herr Driesbaeh and
the tiffcr as "Co _ ] , Alp-WinKT .1 W ° one
save tlfo captain of the boat know wuo
"Col. Alexander" ho
was , allhough was
assigned to Dricsbaeh's room in the boat.
After the boat put oil' , the passengers
became jolly from frequent center shots
on a black bottle. It was decided to
visit Driesbach's room and ascertain if
ho had anything good. The lion-lamer
assented , and taking his companions
thither , opened the door for lliom. A
bottle was found , and Driesbaeh excused
himself to got a pitcher of water. The
tiger was not visible when the crowd en
tered the room , having crawled under a
bunk to which ho was chained , as his
lamer had removed him from Iho store
box. Presently those inside the room
heard u scratching and growling , and
"Col. Alexander" emerged from under
the bunk and prepared to leap. The
crowd rushed neudlong for the door ,
through which they scrambled in llioir
hurry to leave Iho room , Drlostmch mot
them outside and laughed hcarlily at
their fright , and taking the tlgor's chain
fed him around the bert for passengers

The above bill of attraction , prepared
by one of the saucy , clover little pages of
thu senate , nnd which fell into my hands
by chance , is being most effectually car
ried out. Not since the days of thu "Am
nesty debates" and "clcctorial count"
discussions lias there been such a crush
for seats in the galleries. Thu tide of
emigration turns toward tlio eapitol nt u
very early hour in the morning and long
before the hour of convening 12 o'clock ,
sharp every nook big enough to hold
halt of n man is tilled and nt standing
room to bo had. I will embrace this op
portunity lo frco tlio minds of irate "sen-
iitoro1 families" who arc obliged to go
away on many occasions because there is
no sittings in the galleries , where there
is a long front seat in the senators' re
served gallery , empty with the little gate
upon which is a plate marked " 1'resi-
dent , " locked and no vulgar American
citizen can enter. It is on Iho most rare
occasion that this seat is occupied. Across
the way is the blue upholstered diplomat
ic gallery , vacant the year around , un
less some committee room lunch party
repair thither , as they did not long since ,
tlio observed of all ob.sorvcrscspecially as
"injured wife , " who hadn't been naked
the "festive board"was "
to join , "hunting
: i man , " and that man left the blue up-
liplslorcd gallery in a hurry , much to the
amusement of seine lookers on. Well , it
is a shame to withhold these scats on
these crush days. It should bo iirst come
lirst &crvud. If the president's family de
sires to visit the oapitol at any special
time , why they can easily telephone and
u seat will bo reserved of course. And
as for reserving a hundred sittings or
moro for the diplomatic corps who sel
dom visit either house of congress except
on great occasions , and then they have
seats on the lloor , it is enough to rile tlio
temper of intelligent Americans. Tlicro
are no reserved seats in parliament for
us "furrinors , " or in airy other foreign
seat of government that I have heard of.
'No doubt special occasions may receive
speeitic treatment ; that's all very well ,
but reserved seats the year urouud is too
"KDJIUNDS LOADED FOR BEAR , "
said a distinguished member as the old
Vcrmoiiter entered the senate and took
his seat behind a pile of formidable
looking books and papers ; "ho never
lircs an idle shot , and no knows game
when ho sees it. " All of my readers
have read Mr. Edmunds' siieecn ere this ;
if they haven't they ought , for though
there were "dry legal points" discussed ,
it is good reading , as you will iind. It is
senate ctiquotto that when ono of its
members is about to make a set speech
lie must appear in his best clothes , not
his state dinner cloth-pin suit , but Ids
Sunday , buttoned up close across the
chest a manly style to bo commended to
all men as the most becoming , aud sen
ators are human enough to like to show
off to tlio very best advantage. Senator
Edmunds had on his black 1'rinco Albert
suit and appeared mighty well , nay al
most luiudsqmo , if it had not been for
the awful wicked look out of his cyo.
That left cyo of his has a peculiar
way of drawing his brow down over ,
while his right brow is uplifted. There
seems to bo division to his head -from the
nape of his neck to the tip of his nose.
At any rate you can look that man
square in tlio face and see two legal
opinions nt once ; that is ho always
keeps two points in view the man and
his game. Well , it was his game eye
that had the widest rango. Physically ,
ho never was handsomer : his complexion
has a freshness about it this winter which
it has lacked for several years. A rear
view of Senator Edmunds from the gal
lery is deceiving , standing as ho ( Iocs
witli his shoulders thrown forward , and
his head , all but a lillle fringe of hair on
Iho ouler edge which makes a kind of a
halo , is clean and smooth as a darning
ball. In his case distance docs not lend
enchantment ; the nearer you gel lo Son-
iilor Edmunds the younger and better ho
looks. Ho is not an old man in years by
a long way ; but there is no question
about niij Jii\viupr an old , as well as long
ucau 60 thj's'o bre.rJ. Ui'MDlpg shnulders
ot his. Of course the whole town was
lalklng about lhat speech attacking the
adminislralion Tuesday night and when
EDMUNDS Al'rnAHKD AT THE ItECEFTIOH
with his his wife on his arm , there was a
slir and buzz of surprise. Ho did not fol
low in the line of "move on. please , " but
appeared in the door directly opposite of
the president and receiving party in the
blue room. Evidently some of the ofll-
ccrs had sent him hither as the special
unexpected guest of the evening and if
Mr. Cleveland and his sister gave a start
of surprise and looked at each other for
a second only , what else could bo expect
ed ? But the blank surprise gave way to
smiles that traveled miles over the presi
dent's beaming face as ho cordially greet
ed Senator and Mrs , Edmunds , and Miss
Cleveland was rosy with pleasant greet
ings. "Well , did you over see tlio like of
tlnsV" blurted out an astonished member
standing hard by "only a few hours ago
Edmunds was justgolng for Iho adminis
tration ami here he is just us calm and
pleasant as though nothing had hap

"Oh , but It is the party and not the

While there willjbo no gieat swell occasions -

A. Practical Joker's Method of Pool-
in Unsuspecting Freight Agents ,
From a Now York paper : Contracting
Agent Abrams , of the Chicago & North
western llailway , received a business-
looking postal card on Wednesday , in
viting him to call nt noon on the next
day at the Kings County Hydraulic
Machine Works , Kingston avenue and
Winthrop street , Brooklyn , nnd "namo
the lowest rate to Omaha on 200 tons of
machinery. " Ho spent nearly all
Wednesday evening figuring on the ex
pected job. Twenty other freight
agents , unknown to Mr. Abrams , were
similarly engaged. They had all reappear -
appear at" the macnliio work to name
their rates for transporting 200 tons of
machinery to twenty different ulaces on
ttiis hemisphere. Tno neighborhood of
Kingston avenue and Winthrop street is
saved from being a wilderness by a big
building that looks llko a factory and
by several shanties nnd a small black
smith shop. Well-dressed men hopped
nimbly up the felono steps of the building
at half-hourly intervals on Thursday
morning , and iwkcd the man who re
sponded to the jingle of the boll if the
building belonged to the Kings County
Hydraulic Machine Works. They were
told that it was the Kings Coiinty
Lunatic Asylum and by and by the man
at the door began to invite them in.
After visitintr the asylum the freight
agents wont over to the blacksmith shop
to see if the blacksmith had 200 tons of
machinery concealed about his place.
U hen the tenth man called the black
smith ran him out of the shop. Two of
the agents climbed over a feneo sur
rounding a shanty nnd stopped on a
mammoth boar half concealed in the
mud. The outraged boar raced them to
the door of the shanty , which was
opened by an Irish widow. She said
that the only maehinny about the liou.so
was used by her'daughter Mary Ann to
make shirts. It was dark before all the
