THE DAILX INTER OCEAN,- THUHSDAX- JIOKNING; TUIiX 21.' lsas? tARCE STILL ON. nlc Shaw's Betting ShOpRun- nlngr wiae upen. POLICE DO JUST NOTHING. Ably Seconded by the Criminal Court Officials. Uoyd.trts Minegsr, Is Indicted but Hla Case Will Not be Called Until September The betting shop at No. 267 South Clark street, known originally a Frank Shaw'a pool-room or the Mercantile Telegraph Com-panr, thank to polios apathy, is enjoying an easy time these daya, and taking in the unsuspecting "sucker" without fear of molestation. Owing to the fact that celerity of action is not a characteristic of courts, that indictment against Manager Walter C. Lloyd which grew out of the raid of March 7 last will so oyer to the September term of court. The police department explain the delay in the prosecution of Lloyd's case by the significant statement that "it was not thought best" to present those gambling cases to the grand jury w hich was in session just subsequent to the raid. A month later when the following grand jury was called, its work resulted in the return of Lloyd's indictment bout six weeks ago. Will Run Unmolested. There is considerable talk heard around town that as in some previous cases, of this nature, so will the proceedings in the Mercantile Telegraph Company's cases be continued until they are forgotten and the offenders go scot free. Will this happen? " Judge Lont;eoecker says not. Assistant States Attorney Elliott says not. Assistant Corporation Counsel Chetlain says there is no necessity of the cases being lost aitrht of. But luxurious promises of this kind with the Til complained of unabated are wearisome. "We have the evidence," said Mr. Chetlain yesterday, "and there is no reason why there should be any unusual delay in prosecution. As to when it will be tried, you will have to ask Judge Longenecker." This Lloyd c9e was set fur hearing before Judge Adams March 23, and lasted four days. A week later he rendered hia decision, holding that they were all arrested as keepers of ordinary gambling houses. The defense set up thst they were not liable under section. 127 of the Criminal Code, and also that Lloyd was simply an employe, as manager of the Mercantile Telegraph Company, an organization under charter of the State for the purpose of doing business in transmitting quotations for the benefit of the public generally. They admitted that the Wetcrr Union had put in a line front the main office to the room n. Frank Shaw's request, for the purpos; of do-Uwting racing news. The public is familiar with the posting of the notices on the blackboard, that bets would be taken at St. l'aul, the money being paid in at this end. Claims of the Defense. The theory of the defense was that pool selling and betting on horse races is permitted in Minnesota, and that the Mercantile Company merely sent messages. acting as an agent. They hold that the bets were made in Minnesota and not in Illinois. The prosecution entertained the idea that the entire formation of the company, in renting quarters in connection with Frank Shaw, of Minneapolis, and of supplying a place where moaey could bo sent and winnings paid, was. in effect, a gambling-room, and that the entire outfit was a mere device for evading the law in Il'.inoia against pool selling; also when the blackboard was placed on the wall, with the notice that Shaw, of Minneapolis, would take odds on all the race, that was in effect an offer to bet.- And the jxjison who t-jok the same and sent the money, in effect in,ide a bet withiu this State which was in violation of the law. W lint Judge Adams Held. Judge Adams, on review, held that Lloyd, as manager of the Mercantile Company, was fteeper ot a common gaming-house within the meaning of the statute. bhaw hns been shown to be a part of the Ditmus As-iociation which makes and sends out all odds on horses for different parts of the country. That is evidence. When spoken to about the first raid Judge JODgenecker said that be could not tell ju-t why the ease had been delayed, without look ing it up. "Go and see Elliott," said he. "He will tell you. Ve have some later cases against Lloyd which we can not try before September. Why? Because they are so recent. We have lots of jail or emergency cases to try during August, even if the Judges do not have a vacation." "But is there Dot danger of the case being lost sign oi Dy aeiaysr "I don't see why. It will be taken up ip its regular order in September." "But have the cases been pushed energetically?" "Of course they have. Now you go over on Dearborn street and see Elliott." More Precious Promises. Mr. Elliott said it was impossible to have tried the case during the last term. "LAoya was not nere when the case was called, said he, "and therefore forfeited his recognizance. On June 2H. Lloyd appeared and had the default set aside. He then entered information for new recognizance. June 28 was so near the term's end that the case could not be tried. The September calendar ia being made up now." "You do not think there was any unnecessary delay then?" "I do not." "And those cases will be pushed?" "Of course they will." "No interminable continuances as usual?" "Not that we know of. Those gambling cases will be pushed, you can depend upon it." In the mesntime the mercantile outfit are making hay while the sun shines. The place was open as usual yesterday by virtue of police non-interference, the recent injunction having been dissolved. A large crowd of men and boys bet openly and watched the blackboard with absorbing interest. Men were there who appeared to be in want of a square meal, and others possessing the appearance of illy-paid clerks walked up and bet with impunity. It was an edifying sight. Mrs. Harrison's Illness. Philadelphia Enquirer: The country learns with great sorrow of the seriousness of Mrs. Harrison's illness. Msny of her intimate friends fear she will not recover and the President is greatly troubled though hopeful of a favorable result. Mrs. Harrison broke down under the severe strain of official duties at the White House, which, until recently, was in the worst possible sanitary condition. It waa due to her energies, that it was put in its present condition, but in the meantime she broke down and for four months has been critically ill. Dr. Gardner, her physician, who ia constantly in attendance, says she is "suffering from general debility, caused by overwork, mental end physical." The whole nation will join in the hope that she may recover and that the favorable turn in her condition reported yesterday is indicative of returning health. There is no doubt, however, that there is great alarm felt over her condition because she has been so long ill and has not yet reached the convalescent stage. Mrs. Harrison ranks as one of the most accomplished mistresses of the'White House. None have excelled her as a hostess or a housekeeper. Her personal charms and executive ability have placed the social department of the White House on a plane never before reached. The President will have the sympathy of the nation in his anxieties over his wife, from whom he ia separated by the inexorable demands of official business. Let us hope that whin he reaches her after Congress adjourns it will be to find her Con nie Axnerlctm People's Snow.' - Milwaukee Evening Wiscomin : It is reach better to have the fair a success, eva if it be sot , opened ea Sunday, than to kill it -by insisting that Walesa Sunday ' openlnf ia araated tha exposition ah all prove a failure.

Memphis, July 20. The testimony Intro duced in the Alice Mitchell case pertained principally to her correspondence with her victim. Miss w ard, and to several personally unknown gentlemen with whom she had tablished acquaintanceships through the medium of advertisements. Judge Dubose was on hand very shortly after 8 :30 this morning, and the jury was seated by 8:40. Miss Mitchell entered the court room at 8:30 o'clock. Robert Mitchell waa again called to the stand for the purpose of reading letters. The first letter read waa from Freda Ward to Alice after the discovery of their plans of elopement. She warns Alios not to write any more letters to her as they will not reach her, declares her undying love and constancy, swears she will yet marry ber in spite of opposition, and expresses her hatred for her brother-in-law, Mr. Volkmar, whom she saya she hates worse than poison. Other memoranda in Alice'a handwriting were read to indicate that she was casting about for work to do when she married Freda. Then followed another letter from Freda, the last one she ever wrote. It "was dated Jan. 18, 1892. It expressed the great regret of the writer that she was forbidden to speak to her (Alice), expressed undying love for her, and cautioned her to "say nothing about that last summer's business," as no one knew of it but her family. Witness had spoken to his stepsister about her proposed marriage. She talked of it freely. She said Dr. Patterson was to marry them. Then they were going te St. Louis. This ended the direct examination and General Peters took the witaess. Witness admitted that Alice carried on a correspondence with others besides Freda. She had corresponded with various men, strangers to her. A letter addressed to V. J. Ward, Carbon, Texas, and written by Alice, was read. She expressed her pleasure that her correspondent is pleased and bad fallen in love with her description, and wonders how long it will be before he falls in love with her. She says she is writing without the knowledge of her parents, and says this is the reason sbo does not have her letters sent to the house. The letter is signed Freda Ward. Still another letter was read, dated Jan. 22, only three days before the tragedy. It is addressed to Tom L. Rieger. Pittsburg, Pa., equally affectionate with him aa with "Dear Birdie." She affects to ba an actress and says that it is told of actresses that they can't really love, that "they miss the prompter," but assures him that "this little actress can." She tells how a man 30 years old made love to her last Friday, and adds that she "bad not got over it yet. Then comes a letter to Freda written Aug. 1, ltl. It starts out with "Dearest Love." It is a jealous letter, accuses her of loving Ashley Rosall, and says she will kill Mr. Rosell before Freda shall have him. "Oh, if I could see you once, if I could only squeeze you. Oh, you wo' kjiow how I love you," she writes, and after ronnulauug :!iuf far an elopemont at some future time expresses the fear that if they delay too long she will fall in lova with somebody. Letters were read from Alice to "Henry," a young man she had met at Golddust. in which she refers to Alice as her sister. Another in which she speaks of "ner friend, Alice Mitchell." Then comes a daisy letter to "Henry." She tells of a trip taken under the escort of a "solemn old minister." She found him Dot so solemn inside as out, and they got along very well. But their baggage checks got mixed, and after the parson left her at a juuction to go to Iowa and she reached her destination, she tells what happened as follows: "The baggage master brought out a ruity old valise for my check. Think of it, my blue silk and things going off to Iowa and mo left with the parson's collars, pants, and things. Much good my r utiles and things will do him." The only thing that spoiled the story was that the assumption is the trip was a mythical one. The letter is sigued Freda Ward, but whs written by Alice. The next witness was Miss Lillie Johnson, the young woman whose misfortune if whs to be Alice Mitchell's companion when the murder was eomrni'ted, and which fact has caused her joiut indictment with Alice on a charge of murder. Miss Johnson was attired in a white costume. She testified she had known Aiice for three years. She saw her twice on the day of the killing, once in the morning and again in the afternoon. She said Freda was Alice's friend. She always spoke of her. and was telling witness how she loved Freda. After that visit she spoke only of Freda. When she was in jail she could only speak of Freda continually. After they were separated Alice was always crying and sick and saying she wished she could see Freda. Then, coming to the fatal drive just before the murder, she told how Alice followed the Ward girls, saying she must see Freda once more. When they caught up with the girls at the Custom House Alice said, "Oh, Lil, Freda looked at me and smiled." Then she got out of the buggy and said I must tell her goodbye. When Alice returned there were two spots of blood on her face. Witness asked what the Ward girl had done to her. Alice said "Let me in," and then jumped over the wheel into the buggy. Witness was arrested the next day and was put in the same room with Alice. Witness testified that Alice had confided to her that she wanted to marry Freda. Witness thought she had persuaded Alice out of attempting to marry Freda, but she still wanted to marry her. She did not know Alice was armed with a razor or any other weapon on the day of the murder. She thought she was only going to tell Freda good bye. This ended the direct examination and the cross-examination will be commenced tomorrow. CHEAM CITY NOTES. Georgo HUlling Peculation Wisconsin Dentists In sesaion. Mawiriu, Wis., July 20.

BECAUSE OF BAD PRESSURE. Natural Gas Working Sad Havoc at EI wood, Ind. Edmund Dodison Disappears from Nsenah, Wis. General News The Fir Record. In May, 1891, the lumber yards of the J. W. Day Company, at Minneapolis, were burned. It waa claimed that the fire started from aparka which escaped from the aawdutt burner of the Akeley Lumber Company's mill, by reason of the fire spark arrester be ing out of repair and having several holes in it. By reason of this claim the Day Company, backed by the insurance companies that held policies on the lumber yard, began suit against the Akeley Company for $209,000 damages. The case has been on trial since June 22 last, the defense being that the arrester was all right and no sparks escaped, or if they did that Day k Co. were negligent in having their yard covered with inflammable sawdust so that it would take fire readily. This wss caused contributory negligence to that extent as to defeat a recovery, but J udge Lockrenin his charge withdrew .this question from the jury, and told them that the only question ior them was that of liability, and if the Akeley Company was found liable to fix the damages. The jury, after five hour's deliberation, returned a verdict for the defendant, BECAl'SE OF BAD OAS PRESSURE. Companies Considering the Advlaablllty of Withdrawing from El wood, Ind. A special agent's report on El wood, Ind., sayi: "The town is supplied with gas by two companies, the CitizonV and the DeHority Company, the supply being obtained from well in the town limits and immediate vicinity. The pressure at the wells is 2s0 and 325 pounds. The high pres sure ia the Dellonty system is forty pounds. which is reduced to one pound low pressure for domestic use. 'A .mall proportion six-inch main was recently laid, the remainder is four and two-inch, the lat ter being a high pressure pipe.

"As these plants are put down on the plan of chf-apnesa backed by ignornnce, it will cost them more than the original expense to put them in a eafo condition, and it will never be done while insurance companies pay tho dammro." Several prominent general accnts are prospecting and the outcome will undoubtedly be the withdrawal of their agencioa from the town. THAT SHOOOY MILL FIRE. Claim. That the Large Los. Waa the Fault of the Department. T. W. Eustice, special agent of the Phenix of Brooklyn, in a reort to his company regarding the .pnnklor fire in the Henjamin Hey A Company -Shoddy mill, at Cincinnati recently, states that it appenrs very doubtful if tho fire started in tho drying boxes as reported, for the reason that while tho boxes aro badly burned on the outside, the inside .hows no signs of lire. The report continues : The honda nil opened and tbey threw water in abundance until the tank waa empty, relyinar thn nton a four-inch feeder in the alley, supplied by an cigUt-ineh main, the pressure on which was not great enough to be of service. Th streams drew from cisterns, .applied by a main on Broadway, and in no way directly affected the presaure on the four-inch pipea referred to. but one-half, perhaps two-thirda of the lues could have been avoided had the Ore department roado use of the Siamese coupling on the front of the building, attached to a four-inch riser, which waa connected directly with the aprinkler and which waa a part of the sprinkler equipment. This coupling was immediately at the front door, and the nearest tire company had been advised of i's uh and purpose; bat, instead of attaching hose from a steamer and distributing the water through the sprinklers, three lines of hose were carried up ataira through the front building, which ia the warehouse, separated by brick walls and double iron-covered doors, and they fought ths tire in that way, although the stairway for the factory ia ou the aide of the building, and access could have b:-ea bad from there or from the rear. The bursting of the hose in the warehouse canted a considerable loss of stock therein, the water standing to a depth of twenty inches in the basement, after running down from the third Moor. The (Drinkler equipment was really a one-source supply, with the auxiliary source, which unfortunately was not put into service, HAS LEFT MJCSAH. Agent Dodgaon Skips Oat Owing Thousands of Dollar. Advices from Noenah. Wis., state that Edmnnd Dodgaon, who created such a sensation in that city for some time as an insurance agent, has decamped owing everybody, and is now supposed to be in Europe, Hodgson, it will be remembered, ia the agent who offered to write all the retail lumber yards in Wisconsin at 1 per cent, in such companies as the Liverpool and London and Globe, Home of New York, Phenix of Brooklyn, Manchester, Traders and others equally responsible, none of which had given him any right so to do. As a consequence, several companies secured the services of an attorney to prosecute Dodgaon for using their names without authority. In September last he waa thrown ont of he compact in Neenah for rate cutting and keeping a double set ot policies for some of his companies. Another of the brilliant schemes of Dodgson was to organize a company to write nothing but special hasards in the State of Wis-s main, on which the rate was very high. He gave out that when the company had secured a good line of premiums it would quit business at once. It is understood that the Oakland Home has secured an attachment of the office furniture which is left in Neenah. WILL MEET AT HARTFORD.

CHICAGO AS A BOOK MART. It Is Mow, Says A. L. Burt, the Great Distributing Center. Publisher A. L. Burt, of New York, has been spending a brief season in this town in the interests of his trade. Before returning home be bad some interestiug observations to make yesterday on the subject of Chicago as a book mart. What he said is worth re producing. "Chicago," said he, "has become a great distributing point for the whole sale book trade. During the last three weeka msny of the room at the Palmer House have presented the appearance of a great library, or perhaps it were better to say a literary bazar. I here were in this hotel about sixty representatives of Eastern publishing houses. Each had his own room for the display of his particular lines of books, which were spread out in at tractive form upon long tables. Here buyers were entertained, and there was of course great rivalry among the representatives of different publishing houses. "Not only the local buyers of Chicago houses, but buyers from Kansas City, St. Louis, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Grand Rapids, Milwaukee, and many other inland cities and towns come to this bazar to make their purchases for the autumn and holiday seasons. This was an object lesson on the greatness of Chicago as a distribution point. Buyers from all these surrounding inland cities are compelled-to go no farther than Chicago to get books at wholesale from any of the big Eastern publishers. Agents of these publishers would hardly visit all the smaller cities, but are willing to set a time to meet the buyers at this central point. "lhe ew lork, Boston ana I'hiaaeiptiia publishers have boen in the habit of sending representatives hero for several years past, with full lines of their publications to show buyer. Theio representatives usually open up their displays at the Palmer House about July 5, and continue doing business fur three weeks. Buyers are given as Javora t.e terms and prices as they could obtain by visiting the Eastern houses. This method of supplying the Western book trade seems to be increasing in popu larity, and Chicago is becoming more im portant as the point where interests may be concentrated. Books are usually delivered by slow freight, by water and otherwise, at very low rates, and those sold now will reach their destination on or before Sept. 1." SECOND DAY AT MONONA. The Attendance at the Assembly Greater Than Ever Before. Madison, Wis., July 30. Special Telegram. The Monona Lake Assembly is now in full progress and people are flocking in to take np temporary abodes on the shore of the lske. The indications are that the attendance will be twice as large as that of last year. Mrs. Virginia Terhune, of Brooklyn, X. T., known to the literary world as Marion Harland. read the first paper before the Woman's Council this morning. Her subject was "By the Day.' The important feature of the day's programme was the lecture delivered by Ur. John xtarrowa, oi inicago, upon '"The World of Shakespeare.'' The speaker at first discussed at considerable length the theory that Bacon wrote the plays and pronounced it absurd for many reasons. By all the evidence possible to obtain at this time the assumption is warranted that Shakespeare was the author of the plays attributed to him, while the theory that Bacon was responsible for them had the merit only, if merit it was, of plausibility. Both Shakespeare and Bacon were saturated with the events of that great period, yet the former adored the English language while the latter despised it Bacon translated his works into Latin because, he said, "the English language would bankrupt literature." Shakespeire's plays show breadth and the hand of one in touch with humanity, while Bacon was scholastic and erudite. Shakespeare's life was rich in all those varied experiences which gave him material for depicting human nature in all its phases. Bacon was closeted with Peers and surfeited with books. From his mother, Mary Arden, a lady of tine Norman family, Shakespeare inherited to some extent his imaginative, romantic disposition and his fineness of perception. If be waa ''too wicked" to write the works which bear hs name. Bacon was infinitely more debarred from partaking in their purity for hia life waa that of a genteel criminal, while Shakespeare's errors were faults not of a nature to undermine the force, and strength, and nobleness of his great mind. The speaker then made comparisons of the poetry with the events of Skakespeare's life and the stirring event of the time in which he lived. SOCIETY WEDDINGS.
