clay In the trial of what is now generally
known hero us the Burlineton dynamite
cuso. Mho court room was tilled at an earl.y
hour with much the same kind of an audience
ua were there yesterday sturdy lookinj
engineers , as then , pit-dominating. The
United Slilles commis-iionor was In his seat
promptly nt 10 o'clock. The rcpoitciswoii
also In walling , but the long hand of Iho
clock had crept 16 the llrst mmiter marJ-
ivlien the attorney it and prisoneis entered
It was then Iho tlrsl surprise occuired Al
the little gate opening into tba bar the attorneys
tornoys for the prosrcution nnd dcfensi
entered , the former going to their seats ot
the north side of the room and tin
latter to thu south. When al
were seated Bowles , the pvisonui
against whom such damaging evidence wn1
given jestcrduy , wns observed sitting union/ /
the prosecution. It was ut Hi si thought IK
Jind miidn n mistake , mid he was. spoken to o
' It ; bill ho only shook his head in n sort of i
\vny mid remained where ho was. A grea
change had come over him hinco yesterday
His eyes were bloodshot , ns If ho had no

traces of tt'iir * . Instead , too , of silting eicc' '
and In nn ntlitifdo of defiance , M ho Inul tlom
nt the nflernoon session , lie leaned heivih
on the nrmsof his chair. His head , whicl
.had poised firmly on his powerful neck , sunl' '
deeply In his breast. Howies has an hottest ,
Open countenance withal , and the change
. which came o\er it , coupled with his wholi
. gcnaral nppoanntco , which wus ono of abjici
submission and lepentnnco , could not-fail tc
piako hn impression on all who saw him. II

* ' Jurlivclv as ho Mil acioss1 the room , and H
' . " ' . ' vrn < < plain to sio they rcgatdod the fuluio ol
p" the trial with anything but plensan
p"i. thoughts. BowlaV bitjthcr sat between At
i. torneys IJonahne and David , engaged will
them in earliest conversation. The auditor
who kngw Bowles g.izt d at him with nnv bu
friendly looks , and , with heads close lo
gcllier , uhlspeicd conjcclun-s alnong Ihem
sCWes. The iirpsecutiim sal iialtenlly wait
irig the time when the defense should signif ;
their tcadliifss-to begin. They scorned Un
Idast ntTected , but then they had Known of i
all nlghl and hud had lime lo compose tiicl :
When tbo case was begun to day tin
United Slates dlsirict attorney , Mr. Kwlng
arose and said :
"May It please the couit , I understam
from Uie defendant Bowles that ho does no
Ccsrlru lltrthcr examination so far as he i
concerned , nnd wishes to waive fuitlitr ex
. ttminnlloiir You can ask Mr. Bowles him
self. "
Commissioner Hoyno nskcd Bowles If thi1
. W so. Mr , Donahue , for the defense
Jumped up nnd said : "Slop. Iuint tu sa ;
eotccMnng , " but Mr. Hoynu Insisted on talk
. JSjf fit st to Bowles ,
. "Is thu Htatement true I" asked Hoyno.
Bowlci stood up mill said ; "Yes sir.
sire to waive examination. "
Then Mr. Donahue had his innings. "
Uavq always been t rev ted wath ordinnr ;

this. This man Bowles is our cliynt and 1
Jwas unfair to Inko him into consultatioi
With Iho gentleman who pretends to represent

' "What else can you get In this courU1

"Mr. Hoyno's face grew wjilto ai

' * 'Mr. Marbnnl , remove that man from th

' Marshal Marsh advanced and scired th
truculent attorney by Iho arm , but tbo h-at
.Mittlq lawyer Jerked away from hln
' -J'Whei'e's your authority11' ! shouted Mr. Don
olitiQ to thu court.
"I ntn n lawyer. I Imvo been admitted t
' thi bar , nnd I propose to bo respected , eve
if I mil HI a United States court , " said Davii
' 4'Why did yon order him removed 1" di
' Innndcil Mr. Donahue.
. "Because jon used Intemperate langung
' nnd. liiHUltcd the court , " answeied JIi
"Aly nssoclato meant every woid ho .said ,
Bald Mr. Donahue. "Ho said
\vlllfully and deliberately. 1 meat
every word I said , and I said it with deliboi
' ntlon andtnalico afoicthought. "
' "Tliis klnu of talk must stop , " snid tl
"I would stop tt now,11 said Distiict A
toruoy Ewing.
"Well , stop It , aiid we will take the consi
tjuencec , " replied Mr. David.
' "Wo'vo been Insulted at every step , " sa !
fclr. Donahue , "and we will take Iho cons :
Quonccs of protesting airalnst any nueh on

o * Mr. Hoyno "I told the marshal to rcmnv

f Mr. David "I meant no disrepcct to tl

Mr. . Donahue "Assuming Unit my ass
elate wr.s In contempt has he nol purged hn
Belt of that contempt ) "
Tlio couit " 1 know he has now. "
Mr. David started with some forcible r
tnarks about the method of Iho prosccullr
Inducing Iho dofendanl to waive cxaminatii
Vilhoul llrst asking whether lie had co
pulled his lawjois as to the meaning and u
lect of xncli a htcp , when the courl ink
knpted him with "sit down and proceed wi
$ ho co e. "
Theto wns a moio dramatic scene tofolloi
Mr. Ewing asked that the case be continue
\intll ID o'clock Monday morning , ns il
goveir.mcnl was nnt icady to pr <
cced. Mr. Donahue opposed the coiilinuani
. . . "It is veiy strange , " said he , "that b
Cause Ihoy Imvo induced Uils poor m :
Mowles to go in n private consultation wl
tbo great lawyers nnd Iho railroad nmgmil
on the other sldeof the case , thai they shou
not bo ready to-day , although they we
ready yesterday. "
> fllr. ICwing said It was for the Intercut
justice that ho desired timo.
b "Of course , " buid Mr. Hoyno ; "if t
furtherance demands It , It will Imvo to
granted. "
Jidforo the lust word had fallen from 11
" 'tonimisslonor'K lips , Bowles nroso from !
'chair and look a few steps toward Iho com
'r ' "With his head turned toward the Judge in
half avoided fiom the [ faro of the spcciatoi

resolute but ycl trembled In its lone , he sal

only bo for the sake of Justice and to pro

Bowies' volco broke ns ho finished the se
tonce , and the tears rolled down his biou
checks , while emotion that ho could not ct :
trol shook thu gplendld proportions of 1
tnasslvo frame. Bowles Is n powerful man
bt least fix feet high and looked n gia
among the slightly built lawyers nnd rnilro ;
, tnon by whom.ho wns surrounded. When
took his scat ho wined nls eyes with n r
cotton hiinilkercldof nnd leaned his head '
the back of his chair. Poor Bowles w
tadly broken down.
Mr. Donahue said , with a sarcnstlo smll
"A * Mr. Bowles i > not in this case , I pi
unto we may go on.1' '
f Mr. Dnnahuo wanted to know whether bi
'tfrnild bolhcit in Bowies' C4ise. "Bisbrolh
, 'Is ' hero ami bus remitted us , " ho said.
Mr. ICwIng objected , tliat Mr. Donnhi

Mr. David's ' speech was delivcied with In-
cnso feeling nnd enrnestness , nnd the uttor-
icys on the other side squirmed because the
court would not stop the young man's Invec-
Ive nor punish him for his boldness. When
m closed the court deelaicd the case ml-

vas amended at the last moment by thu in

shall not cost more than ono third of the Mm

the bill how in the president' * hands , ex

will permit the purchase of 040 acre

About four years ago while tUo ill fated
\onng voiiinn , who wits then buaiitlful nnd
attractive , was living in Ked Oak , she was
the Hwet'ttKMit of a younghniuu'opathlc phy
sici.m nami.ll Heavy duller. As. 1ms often
happened before , and will happen In the In-
turc , the guileless roMbtr.gtrl fell n VJcfiin
to thij blaiul'Mim.'ijt.s ' of her lever , and in an
evil hour , uilder piomiso of speedy iimrriago ,
surreiiilercil to bun that which is moii ) price
less to a woman than llfo Itself her vlitue.

Her persistent annoyancus. lln.illy became

jjnphtuiblu hatred burning in her In-art Him
followed him , Jn .laclison she resumed hdr
old tiutlOs , and a thousand and one times did
Dr. Cudlor regret the en or of his
Mattel s llnaltv culminated in Alice mooting
the doctor's ' wife on the sUcet oio ( day , and
distorting her ioituivs in a hoi'nblo wtiv ,
she spr.mgat her. Mis. t'ndler was in
( b-Hc its ; condition -and fell 10 tli sidewalk in
a taint. S1'0 was then taken lioine , iutd for
weeks and wcojfs lay at the point of death.
Tlio luuy ni'ver fully legained her healtli.
For this Alice was arrestc/d , tried and by

abode with a nmirlod sister , and instead of
bolnu regarded as an imilvidiial mentally
unlKilanced , she was looked upon as a per oit
of oven extr.iordlmiry intelligence and aim-

from Ottumw.i nprtn Alice's appearance ,
