THE PEARSALL TRIAL.
A DETECTIVK HONTINO UP BVIDESCK
FOR THE STATE.
SanAhtosio June 13. The trial
of Alfred Y. Allee Jasper Lyons and
Andy Boone for the murder oi Editor
Bowen was continued at Pearsall to-
day. The court room was crowded
and the most intense excitement pre-
vailed. Edith Miller a 14-year-old girl who
was in the coach was put on the
stand and she remembered nothing
save that the asile was filled with
smoke and a man shooting. She then
cowered down between the seats.
Blair. G. Harry a railway brakeman
said that when the shoeing be-
gan he was on the out-
side and he rushed into
the car when the firing ceased and
found Bowen kneeling between the
seats. He had been shot twice
through the brain and his hands ham-
mered nervously on the seats. Harry
grasped his arm and with the others
straightened the body out in the aisle.
Despite the desperate nature of bis
wounds Bowen lived four or five
minutes. He did not speak. There
was no weapon in his hands. Lying
on the seat was a weapon of a very
small calibre which Harry picked up
and W. J. Bowen the wounded
brother exclaimed "that i brother's
pistol." Beyond establishing the
fact that both' Allee and Lyons was
on the scene of the trasredy the state
has done nothing.
It is understood that important wit
nesses are in reserve including tne
brother of the dead man who has not
been able to test i fly because of his shat-
tered arm. One of the witnesses for
whom the state is looking is a St
Louis drummer named Babbitt who is
said to have occupied a seat behind
the Bowens and to have witnessed the
whole affair. He will be put on the
stacd Monday or Tuesday next.
There is a special detective on the
ground whose business it is to hunt
up the evidence. His name is spencer

AGEKEROUS HAN WHO RESPONDS

The committee appointed and upon

arduous labor of raising the fund to
secure the permanent military en
campment at Austin have worked un
In some quarters the committees
have met with cheering words and
substantial encouragement. In others
with frowns insults and sullen refus
als to assist Austin to the extent of a
In this connection it is singularly
appropriate to mention an instance
which came under the immediate
notice of quite a number of one of the
committees and which is entirely
worthv of the tellinsr.
There was one little piece of ground
only five acres a beautiful grove lying
near tne ground selected Dy tne mili-
tary board as combining all the eicel-
i . .i : i i v. .1 i. : .. 1
lencies desired by them and which
will be donated by the city
which the Military Board particularly
desir.d should be included in the do-
nation. In fact they made it obliga-
tory on the part of Austin to include
this five acre tract in the donation or
they would refuse to locate the en-
campment here. This five acre tract
is the property of Mr. J. D. Doxie
who Jives near it an old gentleman
who hus resided here forty years and
who desires complete repose aud abso-
lute immunity from noise or bustle.
When he was approached with a prop-
ositio.i to purchase it for the purpose
designated he refused to entertain
any proposition whatever. When
however lie had the whole matter ex-
plained to him how he would be an-
noyed perhaps only a couple of weeks
each year; that the city would fail to
get the encampment if he refused to
sell; that he would but bo perforuiiug
the a(?t of a patriot to al'ow the city
to pay him a round sum for his land he
readily consented to tell the beautiful
five acre grove. Expert real f-state
men estimated it worth $300 or 400 an
acre. But note the cenerosity the
self-sacrifice of this patriotic man.
He not only accepts the noise and the
hurly-burly necessarily attendant
upon such an encampment and which
must surely reach his ears and disturb
his nerves but. he places the price of
the land at $200 per acre and donates
as a contribution to the fund two acres
of the five.
Such liberality under the circum-
stances is worthy of the highest com-
mendation and when contrasted with
the selfish and contracted spirit of
some others of this city who are amply
able to give five times the amount con-
tributed by Mr. Doxie and without
inconvenience their souls shrink in
size until 300 of them could dance the
Highland fling on the point of a cam-

A Plea for City PUygronud.
City children are undoubtedly happy
in their play but 1 cannot watch them
without sa lness and a regTet that the
fnllor pleasures of a country life will
never Lo theirs at tii time tbey are best
fitted to enjoy them. The earnest plead-
ing for a leaf or blossom from the flower
laden tourist as returning from his out-
ing he passes np the street; the eager
band of merry children in pursuit of a
wandering butterfly fairylike visitor
from a strange land tell of a formless
longing for the unknown freedom of the
woods and fields. What can we do to
add to the joys of a youth which is all
too brief? As you enter your high school
these boys and girls enter on the serious
duties of life. Then follows the strug-
gle for existence and a severe one it
We cannot give all these children
homes in the country we cannot give
them all even an outing there; but we
can give them playgrounds in the city; a
very little plot here and there will do.
We have reserved great parks and
squares which .we permit them to look
at and sometimes to venture on. Bat
as playgrounds these are practically useA
less; they are accessible to comparative-
ly few. A vacant building lot in the
proper district is far more to the pur-
pose. Happy is the boy who lives near

use it shows the small "baseball "dia-
mond" clearly outlined every smooth
place pitted with marble holea
What better investment could our
cities make than to purchase small plots
like this at intervals throughout the city
tear down the buildings fill np the cel
lars and leave them with no forbidding
sign open to the children. Their little
feet would soon grade and harden the
ground. In giving the nation's future
workers such an opportunity to lay the
foundation for stronger and healthier
bodies and brighter wits the city would
reap abundant interest on the capital in

A gentleman who lives in Cincinnati
returned home a day or two ago after a
fortnight's sojonrn here deeply impressed
with the honesty of the New York shop
girL On the day after his arrival in town
he went into a large retail shop in Four-
teenth street and made some trifling pur-
chase. The next day he missed a pocket-
book containing fifty dollars in currency.
He thought that he had mislaid it in his
room at the hotel and a diligent search
was made for it He gave it up as lost
and would have dismissed the matter
from his mind had not the clerk of the
hotel suggested that he might possibly
have left the pocketbook in some store. -
The gentleman attached little impor
tance to the suggestion but about a week
afterward he stepped into the Fourteenth
street shop and laughingly asked one of
the floor walkers if a pocketbook con-
taining fifty dollars had been found
there. Much to his surprise an affirma
tive answer was given and in a few sec
onds his property was restored to him.
He learned that the saleswoman from
whom he had made his purchase found
the pocketbook on the counter after he
had departed and promptly turned it in
at the office.
"Are all your clerks as honest as that?"
asked the Cincinnati man.
"Certainly" replied the superintend-
ent of the store. "We have never yet
failed to return property lost in this store
to claimants who could prove their right

Good news for smokers comes from
Havana. It is expected by the best au-
thorities on the subject there that the
present tobacco crop will even surpass
that of ten years ago in quality and
quantity. It promises moreover to
"cure" early enough to enable it to be
sampled by July. The interior harvests
of the last nine years with the excep-
tion of 1888 which was a comparatively
good one had all been late in arriving.
For instance that of 1890 in spite of the
most careful treatment could not be got
to "cure" fit for smoking until last Jan-
uary. The crop is roughly estimated at
a quarter of a million bales each of 100
pounds weight London Telegraph.

Rather an interest-'ig contest is in
progress at the Santa Fe Land office en-
titled the United States against O. F.
Terry and involving the Litter's ' entry
of 100 acres which includes Monument
rock and is said to cover the Breenden
mine upon which J. M. Breeden has
been at work for the past six years. It
is the old conflict between agricultural
and mineral lands. Judge Sloan on the
witness stand said he originally located
the Breeden mine in 1882 and afterward
it was located by Breeden in 1885 who
has since worked it almost continuously.
Attorney Seward wanted to know if the
judge rode his "old roan pony" when he
first discovered the mine and was an
swered in the affirmative.
The case will be on for several days
yet and is being warmly contested on
both sides. Reference to the "old roan
pony" is of local interest because of the
'magnetic influence" as frequently in
times past claimed by Judge Sloan for
this bumble representative of the equine
family now supposed to be dead.
It is related that this pony was a veri
table matrnet for the discovery of gold
silver lead or copper deposits; in fact it
is said that whenever in going along
any street road or mountain path he
crossed ground beneath which was pay
mineral his hair would immediately
stand erect quite on end "like the quills
of the fretful porcupine" and that his
rider Judge Sloan would receive a
shock which warned him of the pres
ence of mineral wealth beneath that
ground and this it is said is the secret
of the judge's numerous mineral loca-
tions all over northern New Mexico.

Carious Instinct of the Horse.
It is not an uncommon thing in the
Argentine pampas I have on two occa
sions witnessed it myself for a noing
hosse to come home or to the gate of its
owner's house to die. I am speaking of

treated mercifully that look on their
masters as an enemy rather than a
friend: horses that live out in the open
and have to he hunted to the corral or in-

I retain a verv vivid recollection oi
the first occasion of witnessing an action
of this kind in a horse although I was
only a boy at the time. On going out
one summer evening I saw one of the
horses of the establishment standing un
saddled and unbridled leaning his head
over the gate. Going to the spot
stroked his nose and then turning to an
old native who happened to be near
asked him what could be the meaning
of such a thing.
"I think he is going to die he an
swered "horses often come to the house
to die." And next morning the poor
beast was found lying dead not twenty
yards from the gate although he had not
appeared ill when I stroked his nose on
the previous evening but wnen i saw
him lying there dead and remembered
the old native's words it seemed to me
aa marvelous and inexplicable that a
horse should act in that way as if some
wild creature a rhea a fawn or dilo-
chotes had come to exhale his last
breath at the gates of his enemy and

John Regan has among his collection
of animals two most remarkable speci-
mens viz. a cat and a dog. The latter
is a small fox terrier and some six
months ago gave birth to a litter of pups
which are now well grown. Puss some
five days ago gave birth to three kittens.
All went well the first day but on the
second Nellie the dog seemed to take
an unaccountable fancy to the kittens
and very calmly took possession of them
driving puss away.
Nellie watches over the kittens with
jealons care and snaps and snarls at
their mother whenever she approaches.
The dog is taken away from the kittens
in the evening to give puss a chance to
become acquainted with her offspring.
Nellie keeps up a constant howling dur-
ing the night and when released in the
morning is with the kittens in an in-
stant and puss is obliged to vacate the
cherished pobt of wet nurse and betake
herself to a chair which she occupies all

ever given in southern Illinois was that
given at Duquoin by Professor Nod
Hathaway. Ten thousand people wit-

face of a strong wind. Fully 2500 feet
high did the balloon go before the nervy
professor cut loose and down he came

The echoes of the baccarat scandal
suit still fill the air. Solicitor-General

entirely lost the use of his voice and is
obliged to retire from any cases in

The denunciation of the Prince of
Wales by the newspaper press ana
especially his denunciation by the
Tory press nas causeu ireuioimuuo
sensation throughout Wreat Britain
and it is freely asserted mat tne reve-
lations made during the trial of the
-.nnarat annndfl.1 suit in court are
judged to have done more to iry.lfe
the imperial monarcby thaXi any event
which has taken placs ior many years
past in England
The first assertion made by the
Daily Chronicle to the effect "that
until the Prince of Wales on oath
swears as 'his confederates' did that
he the prince did not violate the
solemn pledge he gave to Sir Gordon
Cumming he the heir apparent rests
under the imputation of dishonor
quite as shameful as that which the
jury put upon Sir William Gordon
Cumming" reilects the general feeling
on the subject.
The Kubstance of the proceedings
was telegraphed each night to the
queen who is now at Balmoral Castle
in Scotland aud her majesty is said to
have expressed her displeasure in
ruch strong terms that Truth (news-
paper) of this city asserts that it
would not be surprised if the court of
queen's bench revelations were the
cause of the Earl of Coventry's
resigning his office as master of her
majesty's buck hounds or chief of the
royal hunt of her inajesty'shouj ehold
for which office the earl dra ws an
annual salary of $7500... The queen
does not attempt to conceal the fact
that she is angry with every one con-
nected with the scandal and the
effects of the royal displeasure may yet
be felt in several quarters.
At Ascot yesterday the Prince of
Wales was visibly nervous until after
he received a dispatch announcing the
Wilsons' victory. As soon as. he was
in possession of the result of the jury's
deliberations the prince fairly beamed
upon his friends and relatives taking
no pains to conceal the pleasure he
felt at the result of the verdict.

under the head of "Royalty at the
Stakes" says that the Prince of Wales
is the male head of his race. The
women of his honse are virtuous self
restrained and reliant. The English
people throughout the world want
the men to be more like the women of
this royal line. The Star adds: "This
is a proud country and the man who
aspires to represent Englishmen must
keep everything about him fresh and
