which has been exciting the greatest interest
was fixed to coma up In section B this morn-
Intf. O'Mallcy and MeCrystol were to bo
tried for an alleged attempt to bribe Tales
Juror McCabo. There had been delays with
out end almost In the case an J postponements
from time to ttmo and the defense uoout
exhausted itself In putting the trial back. A
morning paper stated that hU case would bo
callid before Judge Joahua Baker In Section
It , criminal district court , consequently when
court opened tnoro was a largo attendance of
After Judge Baker had dispatched the
customary business of the morning , O'Mal-
ley and MeCrystol were called. They both
appeared , accompanied by their counsel ,
Captain A. D. Henrique. The prosecution
was represented by District Attorney Lu-
zcnburg , Judzo W. L. Evans and Mr.
Charles J. Tbcard.
After the witness , had been called District
Attorney Luzcnburg asked Tor a severance of
the two accused , as the state proposed to
place MeCrystol on trial first. Accordingly
D. C. O'Malley was told to step aside. The
purpose of the severance , Mr. Luzenburg
said , was to reduce the number of challenges
permitted to the accused. The empannol-
ling of a Jury was immediately begun and
soon completed.
McCabe testified that he was a collector.
Last February he was living at No. i4 Julia
street and bad lived there about twenty-four
years McCabe was summoned as a tales
juror In tno Hennes < y case , but did not
serve. He was challenged by the state. Wit
ness was summoned on a Sunday and
from then to Monday. U itncss received
his summons Sunday morning at his
house. McCabe now MeCrystol for about a
year. He knew him tn speak to , but did not
know where he lived. McCrystol's employ
ment was selling lottery tickets so far as wit
ness know , and was also connected with a
clothing store. MeCrystol called on witness
at No. - " Union street , where witness had a
desk. .MeCrystol como between 10 and 11
o'clock on Monday. McCrystol said he was
goinc up to the court and McCabe said so
was he. They walked to the court together ,
and McCrystal said McCabe could make some
money on the McCabe said he did not
want to because ho did not think ho would
be taken. .Witness was not called as a talcs
juror on Monday. In the evening McCrystol
met McCabe and walked with him from the
ofllce to McCabo's home. McCrvstal told
McCabe that ho could make SoOO by poing on
the jury and working for a mistrial or an ac
quittal of the defendants. McCrystol said if
ho ( McCrystol ) had the subpoena as a tales
juror it would be worth $1,000 to him. McCabe
Cabo refused the offer and said ho was not
that kind of a man. McCrystol said ho
would go out and get the money right away.
MeCrystol did not say where ho would get
the money. Soon after McCrystol's indict
ment and while In the parish prison ho sent
for District Attorney Luzcnburg and made a
confession. This confession the district at
torney desired to go in as evidence today , but
Judge Baker promptly ruled against its ad
After further testimony the case was given
to the jury at 4 o'clock and the jury retired.
In a few minutes it returned into court with
a verdict of guilty us charged.
The ruling of Judge Baker , in refusing to
admit the confession of McCrystol , saves
O'Malley in this cose , the only case connect
ing him directly with the bribery cases. The
court will now bo forced to try him upon ono
of the other charges , If at all , and they are
all cases of several years ago.
McCrystol was tried for murder several
years ao and acquitted , O'Malley helping
him out of the trouble. Smco then he bos
been O'Malley's faithful lieutenant. Mc
Crystol will tomorrow bo tried upon another
charge of bribery in connection with John
Coouoy , and O'Malley's men. Ono of the
facts much commented upon in connection
with the bribery cases is tnat Lionel Adams ,
formerly O'Malley's partner , has not ap
peared in any of the cases , even neglecting to
come ns u witness In response to forthwith
Charles Granger , another of the Hennessy
jury bribers , was tried today. Granger was
a member of greater importance than Glnudi ,
being connected with prominent families and
having an average reputation. For eight
mon'hs Granger has been in the employ of
the fruit Importers , among the Macbecas and
Oteris. Tbo state tried to connect him with
O'Malley's office during the Hennossy trial
and to provo statements ho made to O'Malley
in the presence of Detective- Collins , who
served the state In the camp of the defend
ants. Granger's counsel objected strongly ,
and the court confined the testimony to the
time of the offense. Granger was tried for
attempting to bribe ono Sbarre. The latter
said ono morning after be received bis
summons as u juror Granger coma to
his house and woke him up. When
ho came down Granger asked him if he
wanted to make fVX ) . Ho said "Yes , "
and Granger told him ho would give him that
much to go on the Hennessy jurv and work
the jury Sbarro tben declined the offer.
Granger's defense was a general denial. Ho
oweu Sbarro a debt at ft > and Sbarro come or
sent to his house thirteen or fourteen times
to collect It. On February I" Sbarre left n
message with Granger's family that Gnngor
should como to see htm. Granger went the
next morning and told Sbarro bo would pay
him tbo following week. Casually the Hen
nessy case was mentioned and Mr. Granger
remarked that amouc alt tbo parties arrested
there were some innocent people. That was
all that was said and u bribe of JjOd was
never mentioned. After being out several
hours tbo jury could uot ugreo and a mis
trial was entered |
The jury stood 0 for acquittal and 3 for
conviction. Five members of the jury who

the position In which sbo Is placed Is doubt
ful , but there H no doubt as to the terrible
nature of the position Itself.
I believe the baccarat counters In the pos
session of the prince of Wales were given to
him shortly before the Tranbycroft affair by
one of his friends , a member of the house of
commons. Ho thought no more of having
them than if they had been whist counter ? ,
but the public Hikes a very different view of
the matter , as is proved by the censures al
ready passed upon his conduct by tbo Wesleyan -
leyan nnd other religious bodies.
Arthur Wilson and their lot also suffer
severely. Nothing could have been worse
than their conduct. If Mrs. Arthur Wilson
likes to encourage her sons to gamble against
their father's wishes that Is her affair , but it
is universally felt that after cheating bad
once been detected should have
been stopped forthwith and the prince noti
fied that reasons had occurred for breaking
up the game. Mrs. Arthur Wilson nnd Lycett
Greene came out of the trial almost as badly
damaged as Gordon-Cumiuing himself.
The solicitor general's speech is allowed to
be one of the finest delivered for yearn in a
court of law , but ho admits that the signed
document followed by Gordon-Cuuimlug's
letter to General Owen Williams asking for
the benefit of a doubt were too much for
him. He could have got his man off easily if
it bad not been forthoso documents.
The scandal may for a time clear the social
