BIQ INSURANCE FRAUP8.
A Sensational Trial of Prominent Peo
ple at Morehead City.
A ppecial from Morchcad City says :
The thin! 1ay of the sensational trial
for conspiracy in life insurance -was
devoted to proving the physical and
financial condition of Charles Arthur,
one of the alleged victims. If the
evidence of the prosecution is not re
butted Arthur is proved to have been
a pauper and almos-t a living skeleton.
Fraud is proved by the evidence as it
fctnndn, but as yet there is no proof of
W. L. Arendell was put on the stand
Wednesday morning. He testified that
Clnrles Arthur was a walking skeleton
and the nearept to a dead man he ever
paw alive. The Justice said this did
not f-how conspiracy and further evi
dence was ruled out.
It is a matter of recorJ that Arthur
was a pauper and received $2 a mouth
from the county fund, and that ho was
an object of charity for the citizens of
Morehead City and JJeaufort.
lr. L. W. IVrkinp, the last man ar
rested, is mayor of Newport and ex
town constable of Morehead City. At
the beginning of this season Perkins
was in charge of the police department
of tho Atluntie Hotel. Here and in
Ueaufort people are discussing the
sensational arrests, but seem to with
hold their opinions until all the evi
dence has been brought out. They
say prominent citizens should not be
condemned as guilty of these dark
crimes until strong proof lias been of
fered. The prosecution claims to have
this proof. Tho attorneys for the de
fence say there has been no evidence
to prove conspiracy and as yet no case
has been made out.
On the fourth day of the sensational
cases of conspiracy to defraud insur
ance companies the evidence brought
out was in the line with that of the
day before, but was much more explicit
and conclusive. Fraud w as proved con
clusively in one cse after another.
The following shows, first, tho actual
ages; second, the ago named in the
policy, and third, tho real physical
condition of the parties named below,
w ho were all insured for good amounts:

at 2 p. in., and after two hours of terrific
rainfall a cloudburst struck the mountain
about five miles above Socorro, and in les3
than half an hour after dark gigantic wave?,
bringing bricks, mud and dobru. took their
destructive course through the streets. Th?

resulted to the main line south of the city.
Of several houses which stood near the

Many adobe houses in different parts of tho

None of the business portion of the city is

some damage. Many of the citizens have

OUR WASHINGTON I; UTTER.
First Examination of Government
Printers Under Civil Service Rules.
By Our Regular Correspondent.
The first examination of applicants for ap
pointment as compositors in th f Government
Printing Offlee, since the employes of that
establishment were pla -ed under civil service
irules, is now beiuc hef 1. There are more
than two hundrod applicants, and it will
take tho rest of the week to complete the ex
amination of them all. Those who get the
required percentage will bo placed on tho
'eligible list and appointed when there aro
'vacancies or when more help is needed at tbo
O. P. O. Judging from their talk the
"comps" who have taken the examination
'are not overburdened with admiration for
tae wisdom displayed by the questions asked.
One of them, who had wide experience both
In newspaper and job offices, aiid who is cre--J
ditedby all who know him with being a flrst
'class all-around printer, being equally at
home when petting type, making up or read
ing proof, was asked what he thought of the
questions asked at the examination. He re
plied: "Some of them were good, calculat
ed to show whether a man had the knowl
edge every first-class printer .should have
but others were, in my opinion, absolute rot,
dealing with matters having no connection
with any of the practical branches of tho
craft with which I am acquainted."
A business man who has just returned
from a trip through Florida says: "TheroJ
is intense interest in Florida over tho Cubanj
revolution, und every scrap of news from
the scat of war is eagerly sought for andj
read with avidity. Everybody down there
'sympathizes with the Cubans, and if it werej
not for fear of Uncle Sam's interference Ij
believe that 10,000 young and daring spirits
wonld leave the Slate at a day's notice to help
the Cubans in their strusrurle for liberty."
