There was very llttlo Interest for outsldo
spectators in yesterday morning's business
in district court , but thora was aorao very in
teresting testimony introduced la the after
noon , that Induced tbo attorneys to cluster
ns near as convenient to the witness stand ,
and the spectators crowded as close to the
railing as It was possible to got , so that not a
word should bo losL Itvns not a spicy dl-
vorco suit , or of the kind which usually
draws a crowd to hear a rehearsal of dis
gusting nnd nauseating details , but \vas sim
ply onu of the saloon cases , In which John
A. Lnndstrotn In plaintiff , and George F.
Doulton attorney. The case is entitled
Landstroui vs Chris Hudlo ot at , the other
defendant bolng Thomas Mctcalf , the owner
of the building , No. 013 Uroadway , against
which an Injunction was sought. Jacob
Sims appeared for Motctilf , and Colonul D.
H. Uailoy for Kudto. It was evident from
the start that tnoro was to bo con-
si'Iorablo horse play , and that 13oul-
ton would bo the victim of It.
Ho movwl for n judgment by default , ns no
record npponrod of any answer having buen
filed by the defendant. Then the fun
jogun. The delcndant's attorneys demurred ,
objected , executed , filed motions , vorillod
answers , etc. , etc. , until Uoultonvas nearly
xvild. The attorneys outsldo the case till
jecixmo Intensely interested , and the fact
soon became patent that Houlton was fightIng -
Ing the whole bar. If ttiero wus anything
that the two nttornoys employed could not
think of It was promptly suggested by some
of the others.
The court could not help but sec what was
tjolng on , but it was all done so quietly tnat
tliero was no occasion for interference. For
fully two hours Boultan was mercilessly
"horsed.1 * to the Inlhilto amusomunt of
everybody but himself. Even the witnesses
took'a hand , nnd would testify to anything
but what ho wanted them to. Finally the
court got weary of the exhibition which
Uoulton was making of himself , and
told him that ho was wasting the
court's tlmo In making foolish ob
jections , and that It had required
longer to got through , the preliminary mat
ters than should huvo been required to try
the case. At length ho was called as a wit
ness by the defense , and then ensued such n
questioning as would take the stiffening out
of the knees of a marble statue. Colonel
D.iiloy took the ilrst hand , and after com
pelling Boulton to acknowledge n number of
things around which ho tried unsuccessfully
to squirm , the witness was turned over to
As Is very well known , Boulton and Sims
are the attorneys representing the two classes
of prosecution agulnstthosaloons , tlio former
representing the diigruntlod ex-saloonlsts
nnd tno latter the tompcrnnca ulllanco. Con-
sldcrnblu personal fooling has been engon-
gored between the two gentlemen , oaeh main
taining that the other is in the business for
revenue only , and that ho is not sin
cere In his clTorts to close the saloons.
In tha answer filed by the defendants it is
also charged that Boulton , Ford , Gray and
Landstrom have entered into a conspiracy to
prosecute the saloon for the purpose of black
mail , or In other words , to got what they can
out of It.
There have been several lively tilts be
tween the gentlemen heretofore , but yester
day was tno first time that either of them
has had a chance to handle the matter with
out gloves. Boulton was on the witness
stand , and Sims shot questions at him with
the bark on.
There was quite a jungle as to who paid
the money with which Uoulton was conduct
ing the case. Boulton Insisted that hn paid
"Who gave you the money with which to
pay the illine fees. , Mr. Boulton ! "
"I a well a-um , now if it please the
court I don't think that is a proper question ,
and I shall object to answering It. The
statute provides that communication between
counsel and clients are not to uo revealed in
this way. "
The objection was overruled.
"Well , but I don't think ills at all material ,
and"It doesn't make any ililTorenca what
counsel thinks. I have overruled the objec
tion. Answer the question. "
"Well-er-or , I don't know. "
"Isn't It a fact that Dave Qrav gave you
money with which to prosecute these cases ,
and this one in particular ! "
"I can't say that ho did. I don't remember
anything about It. "
"Havon'Cyou boon paid money to go ahead
with thcso cases , with the understanding
that all the parties who put up the money
should have n share of the attorney's fees ! "
"Now then , your honor , I am accused of
conspiracy , und I don't think It Is right to
put me on the stand to testify against my
"You can talto advantage of the statute ,
and can refuse to criminate yourself , " said
the court tersely , whllo several winks
traveled around the court room.
"Oh , no , I don't moan to do that , " replied
Boutton hurriedly , "but I think that the
com ought to dccido that it is an improper
"Tho court don't think so , " came the chill
ing answer , "
Again Boulton's accommodating memory
came to his relief , and ho could not remem
ber that any such agreement had taken
placo. Likewise as to Cray's going to Mr.
Everett and guaranteeing the rent of Boul
ton's ofllco. Boulton tried to get In his say
a few times , but SIuis shut him off.
"Didn't Cray toll you that ho had boon enjoined -
joined from selling liquors in the state by a
decree of this court ! "
"I don't know that ho did. But I know
what ho did sav. " with a triumphant look at
Sims. "Ho told mo that "
Never mind that , answer the question 1"
"Ho told mo about a certain building which
bus an Injunction against It , und you "
"Never mind that ; never mind that. If
your honor plouso , wo would lilco to have the
witness answer the question. "
" \\'oll , I guess I havn some rights hero ,
and will tell what I choose. "
"No you won't , you will answer my ques
tions , and toll nothing but what I ask you. "
So the battle progressed , ui'd ' Boulton
rcall/ud that no was helpless In the camp of
the Philistines. Ho saw that the jig was up ,
and slid out of It as quietly and qulcklv as ho
could when ho was finally released from the
witness stand. The case was submitted and
taken under advisement.

outlet. Returning to the hotel , they sat
down to a sumptuous dinner. The return to
the city was mudo about 0 o'clock.
The visitors expressed themselves ns very
favorably Impressed with the lake and its
prospects , nnd Messrs. Mlllurd nnd Barton
were highly pleased , it being their flrst visit
to the place. It la understood that an elec

It Is intimated that the Main

upon Industry and the products of industry ,
and the taking , by taxation upon land values
