A foreign correspondent of The Dis
patch spent three dys of last week at' the
great gambling resort of Europe and the
xrorld Monte Carlo and cables an account
of what he saw there. A number of high
rollers are there, throwing away their for
tunes. The Carnot Cabinet is not a failure
just yet. The Queen's drawing room is to
be -a somber-looking affair. The gist ol
gossip aboutEuropean notables is especially
interesting to-day.
London, February 23. I have spent
three days of this week at Monte Carlo,
watching the queer crowd which swarms
there for sunlight and gambling. The in
teresting things seen and heard about were
too numerous to tell about in a few lines of
cabling. A friend of mine who lnnched at
the palace with the sister of the Prince of
Monaco assures me that there is really some
serious foundation for the rumors as to the
Pope's intention to make the principality
his residence. The matter has been seriously
discussed, and there is a rival in the field,
the Dnke of Liechenstein, who would like
to sell his duchy. The idea of buying
Monaco doesn't seem such a bad one. The
Pope would be absolutely independent, he
would have a place large enough for every
purpose, and would do a most excellent
deed from the point of view of the church,
by doing away with the gambling house-.
The Most Important Impediment.
But this latter is the gravest considera
tion. It has made the actual prince one of
he richest sovereigns in Europe. It pays
Jjl the expenses of the principality, giving
'iim his revenues free of charge, and pays
iim beside 1,600,000 francs every year for
he right to keep gamMing tables. This, of
course, the Pope would have to make good.
The croupiers of the gambling tables were
taking a pronounced interest in the news oi
the Austrian Crown Prince's suicide. They
are very well acquainted with Archduke
.Charles, whose house is next in succession to
the Austrian throne, and particularly with
f his wife, Archduchess Marie Therese. This
Princess, who has 29 names, but appears not
to be a very pleasant character, created a
great deal of excitement at the gambling
tables. "When she went there she would in
sist on taking her husband into the casino,
and she would be very exultant when she
won, but if she lost she would insult the
croupiers and cut up rough generally. One
one siappea me ranee's face
in the rambling room for trying to
take her away, and she was twice turned
out of the place, her card of admis
sion being taken away from her. It was
only as a special favor, and in view of the
very high rank of the Archduchess, that
the card was returned, although these cards
are freely granted to every fairly-blessed
demimondaine who chooses to run down
from Paris. People at the Casino even
imagine that the Monte Carlo scenes and
the scandal about the Archduchess there
have had some influence in inducing her
husband to give up the succession to the
throne in favor of his son rather than make
im empress of the quarrelsome lady with 29
The majority of the Americans whom I
caw in Monaco, I am glad to say, spent the
time climbing about the beautiful hills,
picking lemons and oranges, and having a
good time rationally. The wisest inhabi
tants of Monte Carlo, namely, the croupiers,
think that Americans are the least profita
ble of
The Flics That Corao Into the Web
of the biggest gambling establishment on
earth. The young people, as a rule, are not
supplied with money enough to make their
gambling profitable, while older people ap
pear to have a knowledge of the value of
money, which makes them more wary than
is good for the Casino. The English are
'the best gamblers and play the heaviest
game, with the exception, perhaps, of an
occasional Russian or other eccentric indi
vidual who comes along and plays yit all
ht fortune.
Interesting characters who were at the
table while I was there were very numer
ous. Lord Randolph Churchill played
t every night from 9 till 11 o'clock, standing
behind one of the croupiers of the trente et
quarante table. Behind the opposite crou
pier stood Lord Hartington. Hartington
played a slow game, paying down only a few
louis, but evidently with a keen interest in
the result. Churchill, without being a genu
ine plunger, played rather heavily, paying
down 10,000 francs with freedom andborrow
ing when fortune went too hard against him,
and in favor of a certain smooth-faced voung
nan who always had a fat pockctbook.
Churchill was losing while I was there, and
Hartington was about even.
Hardest Kind of Hard Luck.
Young Herbert Gladstone, on the day I
left, was just 4 ahead on his season. He
was complaining bitterly of a piece of ill
luck which had robbed him of "hie hard
earned profits. He had seen a certain man
losing who was betting on the columns at
roulette. He determined to betagainst that
nan, and when he carried the idea info
execution the man won 23 times out of 25.
Bir John Willoughby, a kind-hearted
nan, but poor in ideas and money, who re
cently went to Madagascar on an extended
trip, let his income pile up and put him
square financially. He was having such
luck as would indicate the early necessity
for a second trip to Madagascar. On the
evening I left, however, he lost 27,000
francs. The Duke of Dino, on the same
evening, lost 105,000 francs, and cursed
himself and fate not infrequently, but good
naturedly. The Duke is a favorite with
the croupiers. He chats with them in
friendly fashion, bets his bank notes freely,
and when I was there had succeeded in giv
ing the impression that he had a great deal
of money. As a matter of tact, he came
without anything, being very hard up, and
succeeded in piling up 600,000 francs at
trente ct quarante. It was this money he
was losing.
Tbo Ilcro ol tho Week.
Every week has its prominent winner.
This position was filled while I was there by
a young American from Philadelphia, re
joicing in the possession of an unlimited
letter of credit, which the Monte Carlo
banker was ready to cash, but which he
wasn't called upon to do. I will not men
tion the young man's name, as it might
cause his father to withdraw the unlimited
part of the letter of credit, of which the
capital was.made in the iron business. The
joungmanwas betting what is known as
the transversal playing his money on a
certain row of figures and getting back six
times the amount. At the roulette table he
won 50,000 francs one afternoon and 60,000
in the evening, and started on winning
again the next day.
The Prince of "Wales came over one after
noon and bet $3,000 of the money which the
English kindly supply him, without ap
pearing to care much about the result
Pleasant little Sir Arthur Sullivan, who
was with him, played with equally royal in
difference. Rather Severo on the Dnch,ess.
The Dnchess of Manchester was playing
with her accustomed industry and perse
verance. She will perhaps be surprised to
learn that she was pointed out to me by
young Gill, from "Wisconsin, as an awful
example of the depravity of bad French
women at Monte Carlo. This horrified an
American girl, who declared that she had
seen the Duchess go up without an intro
duction and talk to Lord Hartington. She
was much surprised to learn that the tall
woman with the hard face and big flowered
satin dress was a genuine English Duchess.
Among the women at the gambling table
was one who passed as the Prince Inissi.
This young woman was dressed very fash
ionably, as a dashing young Frenchman,
and was very much noticed for the reckless
way in which she played, and is still play
ing. It was only known to a few that she
was not a Prince, and no other than the
Countess of Bellebceuf, daughter of the
Duke of Morny, who last year took to
wearing men's dress at the Paris opera, and
continued to do so in the French capital
until the police interfered.
The Queen's Drawing Room Not to bo
Very Gay Efforts to Control tho Dress
ing Having a Contrary Effect to
That Apparently Intended.
London, February 23. Society is in
teresting itself a good deal about the draw
ing room which is to be held by the Queen
on Tuesday. It is probable it will not be a
very gay drawing room. The royal family
and members of the court will wear mourn
ing. The upper set will probably do the
same, out of respect for the court, and the
announcement that the general, public can
wear what it pleases is calculated to make
the general public get mourning gowns with
all convenient speed, in order that it maybe
mistaken, as regards the description of its
dress, for something other than what it is.
A number of Americans are to be pre
sented, and it is to be hoped all these will
make themselves as gorgeous as possible.
Among them are Mrs. Bradley Martin, Mrs.
DeRoode, Miss Durant Mrs. George B.

Ian. These ladies will be disappointed to
learn that they will only meet Her Majesty
by proxy, as after the first few guests. Am

The new Duchess of Marlboro is to be pre
sented, according to present arrangements.
It will be interesting to note if a certain bit
of gossip which is going about will be justi
fied. The Duke of Marlboro's divorced
wife is going to be present at the same
drawing room, and the statement is that,
while the Queen couldn't do otherwise than
to receire the American Duchess, who isn't
to blame for her husband's shortcomings,
she nevertheless intends to show her sympa
thy for the divorced wife and her dislike
for the wicked Duke, in a' little way of her
own, by receiving the divorced wife in per
son, most spaciously and going away be
fore the American duchess arrives.
The royal proclamation by which women
were to be allowed, under certain circum
stances, to wear their court dresses higher
than usual, will not make any special
change in the appearance of the crowd. The
fact that this order was made by the Queen
out of consideration for those who are in
weak health or advancing years will tend,
if anything, to make dresses lower-than be
Princess Victoria Has Forgotten Her Bnt
tenberg and Will Marry Prince Carl.
LONDON", February 23. Eumors as to
the approaching betrothal of Prince Carl of
Sweden to Prince's Victoria of Prussia are
more or less officially contradicted or con
firmed on an average of twice a day. The
marriage is scarcely deserving of so mnch
fuss, but if the statement of the intended
betrothal is genuine it is interesting as
showing that the Princesses, like other
young women, can change their minds with
cheerful speed.
Victoria is the young Princess who took
on so terribly last spring when Bismarck
wouldn't let her marry Prince Alexander of
Battenberg, on which occasion very many
sympathetic tears were shed, and letters
written. The tears and sympathy were
wasted so far as the Prince is concerned, for
ho has actually married a young woman,
Marie Loisinger, who sings in opera with
no great success, and whose father was a
valet dc chambre.
The singer who captured Battenberg is 23
years of age, of humble parentage and a

Goes France Has Moro to Fear From
Socialists Than From
Paris, February 23. The French Cabi
net, which has just been completed, prom
ises to jog along and run the business of the
Republic fairly well for a while, perhaps
all through the exhibition, Freycinet is an
able man, and a cunning one beside. M. de
Blowitz and similar luminaries predict
dreadful happenings; that the Frenchmen
are going to do something dreadfully revo
lutionary, led by Boulanger, etc., but this
is mostly nonsense.
Boulanger is quiet, and will remain so
because he can't help it. The fact cannot
be too often Impressed upon those who hare
been periodically excited over his move
ments and rather inclined to think that the
end of the French republic had come when
the Parisians chose him for their deputy.
The Government has the army, which is a
big one, and Boulanger's political muses
for of course he does not manage himself
are painfully aware that they have nothing
good enough to oppose to 400,000 bayonets.
A crowd of Parisians yelling, "Vive Bou
langer!" are impressive, but they won't do
for the present.
Boulanger may be almost overlooked
while the real danger which has threatened
the Republic long before Boulanger's time
still exists, namely, intelligently organized
Socialism. Frenchmen have a decided way
of telling out their feelings when they are
hungry and generally dissatisfied. " The
Socialist leaders see a fine opportuity just
nowof making trouble under the cloak of
Boulangerism, and will likely try to do it.
M. de Freycinet will find Boulanger, who
has lots of money and a comfortable home,
far more easily managed than the Socialists,
whose leaders have many times Boulanger's
brains, and who have proved that they are
not afraid of being shot. A Socialist dem
onstration to commemorate the revolution of
1840 is organized for to-morrow, and a row
is looked forward to. It will probably not
be very serious, for somehow big events in
Paris do not come- off when they .have been
looked forward to.
The Cabinet turns out to be, as I predicted
last week, a purely business one, designed
by Carnot to act really as the committee of
the big exhibition.
An Englishman's Sadden Acqnisition of an
Aristocratic Fnmlly Tree.
London, February 23. The Chinese
are a great nation for filial piety and re
spect for ancestors generally. The Empress
Regent, of China, desiring to honor Sir
Robert Hart, has thought of no better way
than to ennoble three generations of his an
cestors dead and bnried.
It is to be hoped that excessive respect
for parents, which reminds one of the
famous venerable disciple of Confucius,
who at the age of 70 dressed up in children's
clothes and played about the floor in order
to make his parents believe that they were
still young, will produce a proper im
pression on Hart, whose services are so
curiously recognized.
Empress Frederick Gets a Few Moro
Francs Than She Expected.
London, February 23. Empress Fred
erick, it seems, has come in for a much bet
ter thing than was at first supposed by the
Dnchess of Galliera's will. It appears that
10,000 francs is the sum which has been left
her. The Empress intends spending very
little time henceforth in Berlin, not more
than will be absolutely necessary in her po
sition of Dowager Empress, in respect to the
large sum of public money she receives.
It is likely that, in view of the many at
tacks made upon her in Germany, she will
spend as much time as possible with her
mother in England.

An Interesting Chapter in the Career
of the Thunderer' Witness.
To the Cause of His Country, Leading His
Companions Into Crime
As Mnch Feared as Hated, or HIi'.Llfe Hal Lcnr
Since Been Forfeited.
The career of Eichard Pigolt, the sensa
tional witness in theParnell case, reads
like a romance. Pigott no less than three
times has associated himself with Irish pa
triots, only to betray them later and strut
around a free man, while they suffered for
their indiscretion. At such times as these re
appearances he was eager for war and blood
shed. Several times he was recognized as a
paid spy of the English Government.
New Yore, February 23. The early ex
ploits of Richard Pigott, the vender and
suspected forger of the famous Parnell let
ters, form an interesting chapter in the
story of his career. In youth he was a care
less fellow, drifting about the city of Dub
lin, intent npon pleasure and excitement.
His father was the chief baron of the ex
chequer, and was one of the firstCatholic
judges Ireland had. The youngecjpigott
was educated in Clangow's College, with a
number of enthusiastic young Irishmen
whom he deserted in the hour of peril, a few
years later.
Among the men in this city who knew
Pigott well at this time is Colonel John
O'Byrne. He describes the Pigott of that
day as a talented, smooth-talking young
man, with pleasant and persuasive man
ners. His father's position gained for him
admission into the best circles, where his
rampant talk against the foes of Ireland
made him appear to be a man willing to
sacrifice everything for the sake of his
Pigott was on friendly terms with a num
ber of men interested in the Young Ireland
party, and when the party separated, in
1847, and the Moral Force party was organ
ized in its stead, Pigott became prominent
in the councils of the latter. He was one of
the 21 delegates to the council of the Irish
confederation. Among the others were
Judge O'Gorman, Charles Gavan Duffy,
Thomas Francis Meagher. Thomas D'Arcy
McGee and "William Smith O'Brien.
Pigott was a prominent figure in the
meetings of the Council, and talked a great
deal about the necessity of bloodshed and
other terrible things. It was difficult -to
fnlm liim nffpr rmt np hi nnthiircfo ftnA h
1 acted as though he wanted to go right out
and whip England himself. He couldn t
bear to hear a suggestion of peaceful meas
ures, and protested again and again that
bloodshed alone could accomplish the ends
It was as much due to Pigott's inflamma
tory speeches as to any other consideration
that, at the convention in D'Olier street, in
.uiiDiin, in Juiy, isio, it was resoivea
to attempt to raise tho peasantry of
Tipperary to insurrection. Pigott grew hys
terically happy over this, and demanded
that he be assigned to a post of danger and'
difficulty, xne council sent Kicnard o Gor
man, Thomas Francis Meagher and Morris
Leyne, a nephew of Daniel O'Connell, to
different cities.
John Lawless,a solicitor, Patrick O'Dono
hue, Colonel O'Byrne and Pigott were
stationed in the counties of.Wicklow and
Kildare. They were to meet and arrange
for a division of their work. All were on
hand at the appointed time, except Pigott.
After a dreary wait it became evident that
Pigott would not appear, and O'Donohue
declared that he must have betrayed them.
The result of this attempt to rouse and
arm the peasantry of Ireland is well known.
Scarcely a month had passed before O'Don
ohue, Meagher and O'Brien were arrested
and lodged In prison. Pigott had myster
iously disappeared. It was rumored that
efforts were making to arrest him, but when
at last he reappeared he was permitted to
strut about unmolested.
The three prisoners were hurriedly tried
and promptly convicted. They were sen
tenced to be hanged, drawn and quartered.
The sentence aroused widespread indigna
tion, and Minister Buchanan vigorously
protested against its execution. He said it
wonlrffhock the sentiment of the civilized
world. In spite of an apparently earnest
fight on the part of the prosecution against
clemency, the sentence was commuted to
transportation to Vandieman's land. "The
men were taken there, but all of them
eventually succeeded in escaping.
His former companions had hardly been
taken away before Pigott bobbed up' again.
He was terribly enraged at the way thev
had been treated by the Government, and
talked loudly andfuriously about war and
bloodshed, as formerly, but the people were
shy of him, and his harangues were mostly
addressed to ominously silent audiences.
The hunt after the men engaged in the
councils of the Confederation was vigorously
prosecuted, and there was a scramble
among them to get out of the country. The
people wore awed by the prompt conviction
and terribly severe sentence of the men who
were captured. This Emboldened Pigott to
appear again in Dublin and try once" more
to lead Irish patriots into trouble.
For a time Pigott was recognized as an
agent of the English Government, whose
plan was to betray men into expressions of
ill-will against the Government, and
to organize them for the purpose of
resisting it, and then to deliver them up to
the'prison and the gallows. His life might
have " been in jeopardy in other circum
stances, but he was feared as much as!hated,
and lived to engage in tho plots which are
now king revealed before the Parnell conii
mission of inquiry.

fs a little village of 1,700 inhabitants about
CO .miles from Montreal. On "Wednesday
last was nomination day for candidates for
Mayor of the parish, Mr. Chatrand, village
schoolmaster, who has also been counsellor
for several years, was the only one put in
nomination, and in consequence he was de
cided Mayor by acclamation.
On Thursday night Madame Chatrand
gave a dinner to all the village notables, in
honor of her husband's election. The com
pany hid just sat down to the table when
they were startled by a tremendous crash
and three large windows were shattered to
atoms. The cries of the startled ladies had
not ceased nor had gentlemen regained their
presence of niind when a perfect storm of
stale eggs began to pour through the broken
windows. Eggs were no respecter of per
sons and, in a few seconds the ladies' toilets
were mined.
The gentlemen made a sortie against the
assailants. They found quite a crowd of
roughs, some of them masked, engaged in
the attack. But all fled on seeing there was
a probability of a fight. -Two of the mob
were followed to a hotel, but there they dis
appeared. The hotel was searched,
and in a hayloft two of the mob
were found concealed in tho hay. One
was captured, but the other escaped by
jumping from a window. The prisoner was
marched to a hardware store and a barrel of
coal tar was procured. Although the night
was bitterly cold he was stripped to the
waist. Coal tar was plentifully supplied to
his naked body, and when thoroughly
painted a pillow was ripped up and he was
ornamented by a thick sprinkling of
feathers. The captive was then let go.
The Strange Story Told to the Judge by n
Brooklyn Woman.
New York, February 23. Joseph E.
Jarvis got an absolute divorce from Mary
Elizabeth Jarvis, of 53 Lynch street,
Brooklyn. Yesterday her counsel, David
J. Teese, applied to Judge Van "Wyck,
in the City Court, Brooklyn, for
a vacation of the degree. Mrs.
Jarvis, in her affidavit, says that
on February 8 a man called at her residence
and handed her a paper, which she has since
learned was a' copy of the decree of the di
vorce, dated October 1, 1888. "When her
lawyer saw the paper she was astonished to
learn from him its nature, because her hus
band had been living with her almost con
tinuously during the year.
Onemorning in June last, she says, her
husband told her that a paper would be
served on her that day, but that she needn't
mind it, and might burn it if she
liked. She obeyed her husband's in
structions, and did not know
that it was a notice of the suit. Her hus
band lived with her up to February 6, 1889,
when he left her, taking -her three children
with him. "When she sent for them he re
turned a copy of the divorce decree.
Mrs. Jarvis says she does not know one
co-respondent, Budworth, mentioned in her
husband's complaint, and she submits affi
davits from five other co-respondents deny
ing her Husband's alleeations. Judge Van
"wyck gave the husband a week to submit
counter affidavits.
A Funeral Stopped by the Young Man Who
Was Supposed to bo in tho Coffin.
Louisville, February 23. Near Pem
broke, in Christian county, a few days ago,
a body was found which was supposed to be
that of Sylvester Layne, son of Thomas
Layne. The body showed that death was
the result of whisky. Mrs. Layne recog
nized the body as that of her son, who had
been missing sometime. She was pros
trated with grief. Her husband and the
family physician also said it was the body
of young Layne.
The body was prepared for interment, and
on the following day the,funeral procession
started to the cemetery. On the way ic was
joined by young Sylvestet Layne himself,
who wanted tX know who was dead. He
said that he had been off having some fun,
and his parents were so much rejoiced at his
safety that they did not upbraid him. The
body has not been identified.

A Harlem Young Man Who Will Now Poso
in a museum.
New York, February 23. Hiram C.
Van Dusen, the Harlem young man who
claims to have fasted since December 22
last, went to Bellevue Hospital to-day to be
examined by Dr. J. "W. Parrish. The examin
ation was very short indeed. Dr. Parrish
evidently desired more conclusive evidence
than was' presented to him to show that the
Harlem young man had actuallygone with
out eating for Co days. So far as the doctor
could observe, the condition of the young
man was perfectly normal. f

Imperfections In the Thnriow Cast
Still Being Sought lor.
"Washington, February 23. The au
thorities of the Bureau of Ordnance have
ordered that 12 more bore impressions in
India rubber, such as those described in
these dispatches a few days ago, shall be
taken of the interior of the cast G-inch gun
of the Standard Steel Casting Company,
of Thnriow. showing the imperfections
throughout the entire length of the bore.
It will be some time before this -and the
work of star gauging can be finished and
the final report made, on which will be
based the decision of the bureau in regard
to the acceptance or rejection of the gun,
but its rejection is a foregone conclusion.

Most of the Indianapolis Goodbyes Spoken
and Last Errands Run.
General Harrljm laics it wim Him to Put on the
Finishing Touches.
The last day of General Harrison's lost
week in Indianapolis for at least four years
has passed. The latest Cabinet is unbroken
for that day. Fipishinsr touches will be
put on It in "Washington. General Har
rison had his last Hoosier haircut yester
day. Another horse has been bought for
his "White House stable. The President
elect much dislikes the idea that he has to
be constantly guarded by secret service de
Indianapolis, February 23. Another
day has passed and left General Harrison's
Cabinet slate unsmashed. The pressure
that is being brought to bear to break it,
seems to be solidifying it. It is now cer
tain that if any changes are made it will
not be until General Harrison is in "Wash
ington and gets from the party leaders there
better reasons than have yet been presented
to him for a change in his plans. Partner
Miller, in spite of the fight Hoosier Repub
licans are making over his appointment,
feels so sure of his place that he has ad
mitted to several personal friends that it is
true that he is to be Attorney General.
There is still some talk that Busk may be
left out in order to adjnst the geographical
unevenness of the cabinet, but the best in
formation obtainable here is that he is a
fixture, and that the only uncertainties are
as to the disposition of the Agricultural De
partment if "Warner Miller doesn't take it,
and of the Navy Department, which hag
rbeen 'left practically open to "facilitate the
adjustment of complications that may arise.
To-night it is said npon unquestionable
authority that John C. New has received an
offer of the Austrian Mission, and is hold
ing it under advisement. It isn't believed
he will accept it, for no one can imagine
why he should want to cut loose from his
local political connections just when he is
on the top and able to jump upon the Hus
ton faction with both feet.
Colonel Bridgeland has just purchased
another horse for the "White House stables.
Like the two previously bought, it is a bay,
16 hands. Besides this, the animal is a
grandson of Lexingtdn; and can be used for
cither driving or riding. It comes from
near Lexington, ivy., ana is to De sent at
once to "Washington.
Tho "West Virginia situation was put be
fore General Harrison this afternoon by N.
B. Scott, of "Wheeling, the member from
that State of the Republican National Com
mittee. Mr. Scott had a long talk with the
President-elect and left town at once. It is
supposed he wished to arrange some under
standing as to the action of the National
Government in case of the establishment o
rival Diaie uovernmenis in t est v lrginia
after March 4. Mr. Scott and a delegation
of other West Virginians were here some
time ago, and at that time it was understood
they received from General Harrison as
surances that encouraged them to believe
that he would support Goff, should there be
an excuse for Federal interference. Since
then there have been important changes in
the situation.
The cars for General Harrison's special
train are arriving to-day. The finest one of
the lot is the private car pf President Kob
erts, just refitted, which will be reserved for
General and Mrs. Harrison. The other cars
will be 'the finest parlor and dining room
cars that the road can get, and the private
car Iolanthe, one of the most elegant owned
by the Pullman Company. AHogetkij, it is
claimed by the railroad men that it will be
the finest train evermadeupin thiscountry.
George H. Thomas Post, of the Grand
Army, to which General Harrison belonged,
has been ordered to turn out on Monday
afternoon as escort to its distinguished com
rade on his way to the station. A good
many of the old soldiers of General Harri
son's regiment have been calling at the
house to-day to bid him good-by. Along
with them went "Ancient Mariner" It. "W.
Thompson, of the "Wabash, to give his bene
diction to the new administration.
Chief Bell, of the secret service, is an
noyed that the fact that the secret service
men are to look after the President-elect's
safety until he is inaugurated should have
leaked out, and he is abundant in his de
nials. This is principally because Gen-'
eral Harrison doesn't like the idea of
being guarded, and is disposed to tell
Chief Bell that his services are not required,
General Harrison remarked to-day to some
of the newspaper men who ate also going to
"Washington, that he thought he should as
sign Chief Bell and his detectives to look
after the safety of the correspondents.
General Harrison had his final hair-cut
before inauguration to-dajr, patronizing the
barber wno nas cared for his head for many
years, and who, it is said, will accompany
him to "Washington to be the "White House
barber. In addition to the usual trimminsr.
General Harrison submitted to a mysterious
Western manipulation known as an
"egg shampoo, and came from the
barber shop looking as fresh and cheerful
as though he had never been elected Presi
dent Approaching responsibilities have
not seemed to weigh very heavily npon him
physically, at any rate, for during the past
two weeks he has seemed in better health
and spirits than at any time since election,,
and has been growing pleasanter in his ways
and springier in his walk with every day.
The last of the packing up at the house was
finished before dark to-day, and most of the
chests and boxes were taken to the express
or freight offices and shipped East.

Evansville, February S3. Mormon
missionaries have been proselyting in Law
rence. Crawford, Harrison and Dubois
counties. They set up the claim that they
could make the lame walk, the blind see,
and bring the dead back to life.
Two of them in Dubois county, within 30
miles of this city, announced that an old
woman of the neighborhood, who has been
blind for CO years, should bo made to see.
The people gathered to see the miracle, but
the imposters, after working for a half day
with the case, gave it up, assigning their
failure to the weakness of the subject. The
poor woman had been subjected to such ex
citement that she fell into a faint and atlast
accounts was not expected to live.
This caused much indignation, but the
elders were let alone until last night, when
they were told to leave the county by a
body of citizens. The elders informed them
that they proposed to remain. This led to
a conference of the regulators, who at once
decided on extreme measures. "While the
elders were still exhorting a small crowd,
four men came in from the rear wearing
masks and in a twinkling pinioned the
elders and led them away into a
distant ravine, where they were stripped to
the hare back and received 0 lashes. Both
men knelt and prayed during their castiga
tion and they were incorrigible- After ic
was finished their few belongings were
brought them and the regulators notified
them they would be left to themselves until
morning, but would be killed if found in
the county to-day.
They disappeared last night and one of
them, Elder "Williams, made a journey of
20 miles to "Winslow, which he reached this
morning. He had left his companion, who
had fallen by the wayside" and he himself
was in a half-demented condition and per
fectly exhausted. They are looking for the
other elder to-day, but up to the this after
noon he could not be found. It is thought
that "Williams will die from the result ofhis
treatment and exposure.
For tbo Cowles Tobacco Tax BUI Until the
End of the Season.
"Washington, February 23. What,
with the deficiency bill and funeral orations
to-day, it was deemed inadvisable by Mr.
Bandall to attempt to call up in the House
his resolution for the appointment of a time
for the consideration of the Cowles tobacco
taxb ill. Such progress will have been made)
probably, by the appropriation bills on
Monday afternoon or Tuesday noon as will
enable him to take that step. It does not
seem now as though a compromise is possi
ble, and in that case Mills and his colleagues
will filibuster as long as they can against
the resolution, which will doubtless be till
the end of the session. Bandall counts on
having at least 50 Dpmocratio votes with
him, and there may be 20 more than that
If, with their small minority of the
House, the Mills faction obstructs all busi
ness to defeat the adoption of the resolution,
the Bandall men claim they will still have
gained a great advantage in showing that if
the Texas and Kentucky contingents can
not get what they want they will play the
dog in the manger, and permit nothing at
all to be done. In this case the responsibil
ity of the extra session of Congress, if one be
called, will be thrown on the shoulders of
the free traders.
A Remarkable Change Noted In Ono of the
Democratic Prosccntors.
Indianapolis, February 23. The un
expected publicity given to the fact that a
warrant had been issued for Colonel W .W.
Dudley, has disconcerted the plans of the
prosecuting authorities, and has caused
much pressure to be brought to bear upon
them to secure the cancellation of
the- warrant, as the one issued in
the same way just before election, was
canceled. Democrats deeply interested in
the prosecution urge that the proposed ex
traordinary action, after the long investiga
tion of the case by the Grand Jury and the
failure to indict, will simply react upon the
prosecutors and sustain the Eepublicans'
plea that the whole case is one of political
Curiously enough. Assistant District At
torney Bailey, who has all along been most
bitter in the effort to bring Dudley to jus
tice, is the one who is urging this plea,
while Acting District Attorney Claypool
overrules all objections and insists that ex
treme measures must be resorted to. Judge
Claypool has, however, delayad his trip to
Washington with the warrant. It 13 un
derstood that he will start to-morrow.

Louisville, February 23. "Jnice"
Latham, the once noted baseball player, has
very mysteriously disappeared, and his
friends are looking everywhero for him
without success. A gentleman who knows
him well saw him last Thursday morning,
and so far as known he has not been
seen or heard of since. "When seen he was
going toward the river and looked so de

commit suicide, as he was heart-broken,
penniless, and hard put to make a bare liv

as a street car driver, and a number of his
former admirers saw him often, not coach
ing the great Devlin and Snyder, the once'
brilliant battery, but a pair of old mules.
Erio's Most Famous Hostelry In n Bad
Hnnitarr Condition.
ERiE,February23. TheEllsworth House,
atone timeone of the most famous hostelries
in the country, was condemned to-day by
Health OfHcerWoods for sanitary reasons.The
hotel of late years has been closed, and has
been used for tenement purposes, and is
now in a very bad -condition. The Health
Officer has given the owners, who are New
York people, until March 1, to vacate the
premises, when the cesspool of filth will be
fumigated and purged to pristine health.
The condemned building covers half a
square and is very valuable, but it is a con
stant menace to tbe safety of adjoining
property, and the health of the community,
as it now stands.
An Invitation Extended to tho Inter-State
Cattle Inspection Folk.
Chicago. February 23. The directors of
the Chicago Live Stock Exchange to-day
adopted a resolution inviting the proposed
inter-State conference for the discussion of
cattle inspection bills to hold its sessions in
Chicago. The resolution urges that Chicago
is the most accessible point for all con

gates can personally investigate tbe methods
of the dressed beet companies and form a

Pretty Irish Peeress Becomes"
Desperately Infatuated and
With Her Father's Coachman; and Despite
Earnest Entreaties
The GUTs Father Crossinj the Ocean In Pursuit of tho
Another victory for the family coachman
has to be recorded. This time he carries off
the bright and beautiful daughter of an
Irish peer and the Colonel of a British regi
ment. The lovers reached Boston ahead of
the irate father, who is crossing the ocean
in hot pursuit. A detective, forewarned by
cable, met the elopers, and tried to persuade
the girl to leave her lover and await the ar
rival of her father. This the peeress refused
to do, and walked off arm-in-arm with tho
Boston, February 23. A pretty maiden,
daughter of an Irish nobleman, attended by
her father's coachman, was a passenger on
the Beaver line steamer Lake Huron, which,
arrived here last night from Liverpool. That
was their relation when they left Dublin.
Now they are husband and wife, and an
angry father is on the ocean, where his pro
test cannot be heard. Superintendent
Cornish, of Pinkerton's force, tried hard to
induce the girl to await her father's com-,
ing, but she left the steamer to-day leaning;
on the arm of her former coachman, and be
came his wife this afternoon).
The couple registered as "Mr. and Mrs.
Neil," when they took passage on the)
steamer. It is an assumed name, and do
tectives refuse to give the right one. They
received word from London several days
ago to be on the lookout for the fugitives,
and they were, on hand at the wharf when,
the steamer arrived last night They were
instructed to detain the- couple until ther
father's arrival, but as each wo3 of age they
could snap their fingers at the police.
It was the same old story of girlish infat-'
nation with the man who handled the rib
bons. 'The father holds a Colonel's commis
sion in the English army and is absent from
home much of the time. The lady is a
charming brunette, just past her majority,,
with a pretty face and figure and a striking;
carriage. If the statements of her fellow
passengers are to be taken for anything, she
is amiable as she is pretty.
White the girl is attractive and the per
Bonification ot sweetness her gay Lothario,
is just the reverse. He is a man verging on
two score, with hair slightly tinged with
gray, and has nothing about his personal
manners that would seem to be attractive '
to a woman. His dress is that usually
worn by a gentleman of the better class. Ha
was a good conversationalist, and in their
long drives the girl learned to love him.
Away from the eyes of the father they felt
safe, thougbrthey should appreciate the old,
gentleman's anger, should he discover their
advancing intimacy.
LOVE peevahed.
The coachman prevailed upon the maiden
to leave Ireland and come with him to this
country. The girl gave her consent only
after long and painful entreaties from her
lover. They took passage on one of tha
night boats that ply between Dnblin and
Liverpool, and on their arrival in that city
went to the officers of the Beaver line and
engaged a second-class passage on board the
Lake Huron, which then lay in the stream
waiting for her cargo. They went on board
the steamer after securing a passage, al
though the Lake Huron wonld not sail for
some time and the second-class quarters
were not eqnal to the hotel accommodations:
on shore. Thev knew it would be a secure
place for them, however, and their pursuers,
if any there might be, would never 'find
When the father discovered the elope
menty he notified the Scotland Yard detec
tives, who easily traced the fleeing coupls
to the Beaver line offices, and found they
had been notified one day after the Laks
Huron had sailed.
The father then called on Pinkerton's men
in this country to intercept the couple on
the steamer's arrival in 'Boston. Superin
tendent Cornish, of the Boston office, easily
identified the couple. He used all his per
suasive powers to induce the young laJy to
leave her lover, bnt without avail. t
Sne obstinately refused to leave him and
said: "My affection for him is stronger than
any love of home and my father. I cannot,
I will not leave him."
Superintendent Cornish was accompanied
by the English consul, who also made a
fruitless attempt to have the girl return
home. She declared again her undying af
fection for her lover, and in spite of the en
treaties of the two men she firmly refused
to leave the boat with them. Again this
morning Mr. Cornish made another attempt
to induce her to place herself in his chargo
and await the arrival of her father, who is
on his way to this country. Again she re
fused, and at about 0 o'clock the couple left
the Lake Huron arm-in-arm, with tha
avowed intention of going to the first min
ister and be married. They have not been
heard from since.
Tho Supremo Court's Expected Decision
May Forco Her Into the Second Class.
Harrisburg, February 23. Louis "W.
Hall, who was the Speaker of the Senate in
the days before the adoption of the present
Constitution, disturbed Senator Eutan con
siderably to-day by asserting positively that
when the text of the Supreme Court's decis
ion on the Wallace municipal act of 1874
appears, it will declare all ot the act con
stitutional except the optional clause. In
this case the special charter of the city of
Allegheny is knocked out, and the city will
have to come nnder the act of 1874.
Ex-Attorney General Palmer, however,
expressed himself positively on the other
side. If Mr. Hall is right Allegheny;
under pending legislation, must become a
city of either the first or second class.
