Judge Miller asked the officer several questions, when Con- K res»man I'euce (pop.. Neb.) arose and created something- of a sensation by dcclarin K that it was evident the court was endeavoring to help the prosfecutr inj? oilkers out of a hole from \yhich they liad shown absolute incapacity to lift themselves. "Can you show any impropriety m 'the questions?" asked the judffe. "I can object that the questions were absolutely improper and leading," responded Mr. I'euce. Judse Miller declared with considerable show of warmth that it was his privilege and sworn duty to elicit all the facts in the matter. Mr. Pence askc.d some questions of the officer, which showed that, although he was recorded as the complainant in the case, he had not entered any complaint. He could not tell how it happened that charges of disorderly conduct and assault had been entered against Browne and afterwards withdrawn. The officer denied that Browne had been clubbed and when he was asked •whether Browne had not been roughly used the judge said that was not in the case. Officer Aldrich followed. Qo was on duty May 1 at the capitol grounds and identified Browne and Jones'as two o! the men he had seen there. Jones carried a stick and banner, which witness took away from bun. At the time, witness s»id, Jones was interfering with witness, who was near Browne, who was under arrest crying out in an excited manner that "It was an outrage." Jones returned to the charge a second time and then Aldrich and Officer Flather placed him under arrest The crowd about at that time, witness said, was large aud disorderly. On cross-examination Aldrich said he didn't see Jones strilte anyone, and that he didn't know how it came about that be was charged on the station house blotter with interfering with an officer. He hod made no complaint against him. Court adjourned until Monday. • O uo nuuurvu IVIMCH lu r»icu>. SAS SALVADOR, May 5.—Gen.
