To Take a Revenue Cutter at
San Francisco if Necessary and
Go to Honolulu and Get the
Facts for Mr. Cleveland.
By Telegraph to The Herald.
Washington, March 16. —Secretary
Carlisle this morning declined to af
firm or deny the sty./ ment that the
revenue cutter Rush, at San Francisco,
had been ordered to hold herself in
readiness to carry Mr. Blount to
Hawaii. It is unofficially stated, how
ever, that the revenue cutter will be
placed at Mr. Blount’s disposal on his
arrival, and unless arrangements can
be made for a Pacific mail steamer
which sails for China on the 23rd
instant to touch at Honolulu.
Mr. Blount will sail on the Rush. It
will take that vessel about a week to
make the trip. The supposition that
the Rush has been ordered for this
duty receives confirmation from the
fact that several marine officials who
three days ago denied positively that
any orders to this effect had been
given, are this morning as dumb as
oysters on the subject.

to take a boat for Honolulu.
He is accompanied by Mrs. Blount

Piano Factory Case Decided in
Mrs. Holliday’s Favor.
In the contest between the first and
second mortgagees against the assets
of the late Atlanta Piano Forte Man
ufacturing company, Mrs. J. S.
day, who held a second mortgage, won
The bonds issued on the first mort
gage were in the hands of the Lowry
Banking company, and the issue of
the Holliday side of the case was that
these first mortgage bonds drew an
usurious rate of interest.
This view of the case seems to have
been taken by the jury, and a verdict
of $13,500 was given to Mrs. Holliday.
Thirty questions were submitted to
the jury,, each of which had to be de
cided before the rendering of the ver
dict. After the foreman announced
his verdict, the jury was complimented
by his honor, Marshall J. Clarke.
There have been many subtle legal
points involved, and the case has been
watched with deep interest by the
lawyers of the city.
The winning side was represented
by Messrs. Arnold & Arnold, while the
Lowry Banking company employed in
its behalf Messrs. Candler & Thomson.

District Attorney Darnell says about
“Redwine will be tried as . soon as

attorney, was seen and said :
“As far as I know there will be no
steps taken out of the ordinary chan

The grand jury convened at the
usual hour and started the third day
of its work in the Redwine case.
The first witness summoned this
morning was Mr. John Henderson, of
the Gate City bank, who told what he
knew of Mr. Redwine’s character as a
banker, as well as other matters per

Mr. John B. Wheat, of the bank, was
also called in and gave what informa

important character. Mr. Harry Flynn,
an attache of the bank, also testified.
Isom Lewis, the porter, told all he
knew of the defaulter, but his testi
timony developed nothing startling or
new. Mr. Alf Caiquhoun also testified
in the case.
The most important witness sum

place, when Redwine was there, and
who remained with the fugitive in a

Miss Leila Nott to Dance the
At the Kleibacker Benefit at the
The Ricketts-Mathews company will
close its engagement in this city on

they will remain for two weeks.
During the company’s engagement
at the Edgewood Avenue theatre it
has been shown many courtesies by
Manager Kliebacker and tonight he
will be given a benefit.
Aside from the fact that the com
pany will draw a good-sized audience
on its own merits, Mr. Kleibacker has
a host of friends who will attend the
performance in compliment to him.
The patrons of the house have long
since agreed that the company was at
its best in “A Legal Document” and
that has been chosen as tonight’s at
An additional feature has been
added to the company, for tonight
only, in the dancing of Miss Leila
Nott who will give the beautiful Um
brella or Serpentine dance.
An additional charm will be added
to the dancing of this little lady by the
fact that she is an Atlantian
She is the daughter of Professor F.

been taught by her father, all of the
dances that are now given on the
She is only 13 years old and this
will be her first appearance with a
professional company, though she
has danced at several of her father’s
When the Serpentine dance was first
introduced Professor Nott began the
work of teaching it to his daughter
and now says that she has learned it
so perfectly that he is satisfied that she
cannot be excelled.
Miss Leila is a perfect little bru
nette with a charming face and figure
and dances with the ease and grace of
one born for the art.
The Rainbow dance is numbered
among the accomplishments of the
young lady, and in a few weeks she
may be seen in it here.
This dance has never been given, as
it was originally introduced in Paris,
in this country, and it’s presentation
in Atlanta, and by an Atlantian, will
make it doubly interesting.

Said Horace Owens:
“I knew that I would come clear of
this thing. It’s mighty hard, you know,
to convict an innocent man, and on

There is a very general sentiment
that Redwine will go to the peniten

away the persons who are alleged to
have profited by the amounts which
were abstracted from the. bank. The
reason of this is that Redwine would
profit nothing either in the lightening
of his sentence or in the service which
might afterwards be rendered by
these friends if he told on them. Then
his acquaintances claim that he has
sufficient sand in bis fibre to go
through with his terrible ordeal with
out implicating others in it.
