There is enongh of interest in the gossip
about royalty in Bngland at present to sat
isfy those the heated term has otherwise de
prived of the means of excitement. British,
taxpayers are very tired of the expense at
tendant upon royal weddings, and they
don't view with much favor the coming
visit ot the Shah of Persia, remembering
what his visit sixteen years ago cost them.
"William O'Brien is again running the risk
of seeing the inside of an English jail by
inciting Irish tenants to strike against in
terfering Irish landlords.
London, June 29 Copyright. Of
course, the chief topic of interest on this
island to-day is the engagement of the
eldest daughter of the Prince ot "Wales to
the Earl of Fife. "Words can scarcely be found
sufficiently strong to express the Loyalist
admiration for the precedent established by
good Queen Victoria in allowing her
royal grandchild to make a love match.
Ihs Loyalist newspapers represent that
the sallow and angular princess of two and
twenty and the short and chubby Scot of 40
love each other with real Florentine, four
teenth century frenzy, though it is not pop
ularly believed that their affection was so
strong that they would have eloped if papa
and grandmamma had refused to allow them
to marry.
Some Things to Be Remembered.
The American who cares to form an un
biased opinion in the circumstances may
bear in mind that the Loyalists would ap
plaud with just as much enthusiasm if the
Queen had sent her granddaughter to a
convent or married her to the first native
prince that Stanley may bring back from
Africa; also, that there are 23 grandsons
and granddaughters of Victoria yet to be
properly married, with scarce a half dozen
eligible royalties in Europe.
The daughters of the Prince of "Wales are
not beautiful women, but they have fairly
pleasant faces. Victoria, the fiancee, has a
long and angular countenance, and when
she is seen driving with her mother in the
park they can scarcely be told apart. The
three sisters dress alike, and, like their
brothers and other near relatives, are heavy
and dull in public, though they are said to
be vivacious enongh when by themselves.
The youngest is the prettiest. She is plump
and has a good figure, unlike her sisters.
Too Much for the Taxpayers. ,
The radical element of English society is
not enthusiastic about the roval engage
ment. Not that it cares much who espouses
Princess Louise, but that it is apprehensive
concerning the dowry the taxpayers will be
called upon to plank down with the young
woman. Indeed, the prospective assault
on the treasury interests many of the sub
jects of Her Gracious Majesty, without
regard to their politics, and as the Radical
newspapers are appealing to Mr. Gladstone
to remember his promise, that no more royal
grants will be made without rigid inquiry
into the whole system, it is possible that the
Earl of Fire will be compelled to struggle
along with his wife on his own private in
come of scarcely more than $400,000 per
What English Royalty Has Cost.
The people are beginning to think of the
amounts they have already paid to the
royal family to enable them to form con
genial matrimonial alliances and live com
fortably in idleness. The King it the
Belgians and the-King of Hanover, for in
stance, have received an average of 5,000,
000 apiece; the Cambrige branch of the
family have pot away with $4,500,000, and
Prince Albert has managed to spend alone
almost $4,000,000.
The direct offspring of Victoria and Al
bert have not been unduly economical in
spending people's money, either: The Em
press Frederick has received almost $1,500,
000; that useful person, the Prince of Wales,
has spent ?12,250,000; the Princess Alice,
$640,000; theDuke of Edinburgh, $2,000,000;
Princess Christian, $780,000; Princess
Louise, $630,000; the Duke of Connaught,
$1,675,000, and U- Duke of Albany, $780,
000, so that, excising the Queen herself,
the institution of royalty has cost the tax
payers nearly $25,000,000 in the last 20
years, in hard cash, irrespective of the cost
of palaces and other accessories.
A Suggestion From O'Connor.
In these circumstances, the Queen, being
the richest woman in the United Kingdom
having herself accumulated $20,000,000
beside he expenses from the British people
the radicals consider she might dower
her granddaughter herself- T. P. O'Con
nor goes or far as to suggest that the rest of
the family ot the Prince of Wales be be
stowed upon Americans. He thinks
Albert Victor might do worse than
to marry the daughter of a
Chicago pork packer, and asks if some of
the Miss Vanderbilts will not step into the
breach to rescue this nation of taxpayers.
The announcement of the engagement of
the Princess, coming so soon after the mar
riage of the Duke of Portland to Miss Dallas
Yorke, has given fashionable society some
thing else to talk about The Earl
of Fife is a very rich man. He
owns six castles in different parts of- Scot
land, and has a seat adjoining that of the
' - "" " ' ' ' ' -- ' ' ' ' ""' "" "' .... i ..,,,,.,-, ... - v-g.
Prince of Wales at Sandringham. His
rent-roll is about $400,000 per year. He is
a descendant ot that 'MacDnff whom
Shakespeare has made popular. He has
sat in the House of Commons, has done
diplomatic service, and is a partner in a
London banking firm. He favors
Enslish Bnlo in Ireland
talks well, and is a general favorite among
his acquaintances, but the family of the
Earl of Fife has been under a cloud during
the present generation, since his two sisters,
Lady Adrian Hope and the Viscountess
Dupplin, have both been divorced from
their husbands. The house of Portland, on
the contrary, was free from scandal, and the
fortune ot the Duke far superior to that of
the Earl of File.
Now the gossips recall that there has been
a coolness between tire" Prince of Wales and
the Duke of Portland for some time. The
Prince and Princess went to Paris just be
fore tLe Portland-York marriage, and for
got all about a wedding present. More
significant still, the Queen omitted to send
the usual cashmere shawl to the bride, and
this is the interpretation thereof. The
royal lamily had singled out the Duke of
Portland as son-in-law for the Prince, and
delicate but comprehensible hints had been
conveyed to him to that effect, but Portland
had in his mind's eye the pathetic specta
cle the Marquis of Lome has made in the
world, and remembered the snubbings he
was compelled to submit to, and
FlghtlngShy of a Baynl Alliance,
he kept out of the way until he had set
tled" matters by engaging himself to Miss
Yorke. Eoyalty, which is not yet accus
tomed to slights of this nature, has taken
umbrage, and the Duke of Portland is in
the black books at Windsor and Marlbor
ough House.
Another event that is just at present caus
ing the bosom of fashionable London to beat
with eager anticipation is the prospective
visit of that amiable and virtuous monarch
the Shah of Persia, who is expected to ar
rive in London on Monday. The Prince
of Wales will go as far as Gravesend
to meet the distinguished guest, who is
to be brought up the river in a gorgeous
steam launch to Westminster Palace stairs.
where the Duke of Cambridge and Prince
Christian will be waiting. Then the mon
arch will be driven to Buckingham Palace
in the state carriage, with a full escort, the
roadway all the way being lined with red
British soldiers.
Many Honors for the Barbarian.
At the palace, the Princess of Wales and
the high officers of the household, all in
their prettiest clothes, will receive the royal
Persian, while three guards of honor pro
tect his sacred person in the palace yard.
The royalty, nobili'y and gentry of En
gland are already vieing with each to do
honor to this illustrious barbarian. Queen
Victoria is to attend two or three
picnics, which she is far too old and fat and
dignified to enjoy, in compliment to him,
beside putting him up, with his suite, at
one of her palaces, which is more or less of
a sacrifice, since the visitor scorns the elab
orate sanitary laws of civilized nations, and
his departure after very brief stays at other
European capitals has been signalized by
general fnmigation and bouse cleaning.
It has been observed that repairs were
suddenly begun on the royal yacht Vic
toria and Albert this week, which will pre
vent it being used to bring the Shah from
Ostend, and "
The Popular Belief
is that Her Majesty brought about these
conditions, in order to save the expense of
refurnishing her vessel -after her guest
should leave it, as was found
to be necessary with the steamer Princess
Alice, which brought His Majesty up the
Thames on the occasion of his last visit, 16
yean ago. The expense then of cleaning,
redecorating and refurnishing the
rooms occupied by the Shah in Buck
ingham Palace was a trifle over
$10,000, which the taxpayers provided. It
Is said the Qneen lodges him at Bucking
ham instead of Balmoral on this occasion,
as well, because the expense of cleaning up
after him would otherwise come out of her
private purpose, since Balmoral is private,
and not crown property.
On Tuesday morning is to be witnessed
the pleasing spectacle in Christian England
of a levee at Buckingham Palace, where the
most distinguished men of the United King
dom will repair to bow before
This Tyrant, Murderer and Thief,
which crimes he most cheerfully admits
since, indeed, his vices are almost sufficient
to qualify him for an English dukedom. In
fhe afternoon he meets Her Majesty, Victoria
Regina, Defender of the Faith, at Windsor,
and in the evening Albert Edward is to
take him to see Zelie De Lussan in
"Faust," when fashionable London will
crowd the house. After that he goes from
one fete to another, having no moment un
occupied by social functions until the end
of his visit and cleaning-up time in the
palaces arrives.
Already tales of this monarch's merry
humor are being told in London drawing
rooms. Having led court functionaries of
Berlin and St. Petersburg to believe that
the presents he would make on leaving
them were to be of the "Arabian
Night" order of Oriental magnificence,
he contented himself with giving them his
photo, when he left.
The table etiquette of Persia, as exem
plified in the conduct of the Shah, is to
throw the contents of one's plate on the
floor when one has finished with what pleases
the palate, but as
The Royal Fiat Bias Gone Forth
that His Persian Majesty is comme il faut,
London society is willing to' degrade itself
to obtain his good will. England expects
to get her return when the question of her
supremacy in Central Asia is again dis
cussed with Russia. Russia has similar
expectations, for the Czar laid himself out
to be polite to the Shah with the same
abandon displayed by the Queen.
The royal family has kept itself before
the public to an unusual extent this week.
The Queen has appeared twice at the royal
agricultural show at Windsor Park, each
time with a large party of foreign and do
mestic -royalties and nobilities, which
attracted "far more attention and drew
much larger crowds than the other
animals on exhibition. The visitors at the
show were mostly loyal farmers, and they
shouted themselves hoarse at sight of their
Queen. Their greeting to the Prince of
Wales was no less hearty. "Good old
Prince" was shouted continually as he made
his way to the stand. The Prince, I fancy,
had no idea he was so popular. He over
looked the familiarity and
Appeared to Enjoy His Reception.
Victoria said afterward that she was more
than pleased, she was delighted and amazed.
Perhaps her amazement was due somewhat
to the free and easy way in which her sub
jects shonted "Good old Victoria."
To-day the anniversary of the coronation
of the Queen was celebrated by the ringing
of church bells throughout the city, produc
ing a discordant clamor not calculated to
cause even loyal subjects td' recall the cir
cumstance with a very high degree of pleas-
A Sclirmo to Cause Interfering Irish
Landlords Considerable' Trouble
Tenant Strikes to bo Organ
ized on Their Own Estates
Parliament Un
usually Dull.
London, June 29. Semi-tropical heat
has rendered politics limp and uninterest
ing this week, except in Ireland, where
William O'Brien is engaged in mak
ing arrangements for a new plan of
campaign which will keep the tem
perature torrid throughout the winter
for the few landlords who have decided to
keep on fighting their tenants. This new
departure has been rendered necessary by
the unwise action of Smith Barry, who re
cently married Mrs. Arthur Post, who,
not content with managing his own
extensive Irish property, interfered in the
struggles on Ponsonby and other estates,
and had since been doing his best to keep
the landlords and tenants from settling
their differences in an amicable manner.
O'Brien, following the strategy invari
ably adopted by English trades unions in
their industrial struggles, will organize
tenant strikes on the estates of Smith
Barry and every other landlord who
should interfere in struggles with
which he is not immediately
and personally concerned. Archbishop
Croke,that most patriotic of prelates, has
given the new movement his blessing, and
already Smith Barry has had cause .to re
gret he did not mind his own business.
William O'Brien has during the week made
several speeches qualifying him for jail, and
Balfour's law officers are understoodto be
engaged in framing an indictment, but the
good work will go on just the same.
Since his return from the West, Mr.
Gladstone has been writing magazine
articles and political letters with character
istic profusion and energy, and has also
found time to dine out every evening this
week. Next week he hopes to get back to
Hawarden, and cut down trees.
Parliament, as well as outdoor politics,
has been unusually dull this week, though
much time has been taken up with the pre
vention of cruelty to children bill. This
measure, evidently modeled upon a statute
existing -in the New York clause
prohibiting children under 10 years
of age from performing in theaters, has
met with considerable opposition, though if
honorable members should attend the
Pavilion Theater, and witness the hazard
ous performance of the tiny Japanese boy
who nightly risks his life on the high
trapeze there, they would surely be in
fluenced to enact the bill.
General McMurdo's Friends Wish the Help
of the Secretary of State.
London, June 29. A few personal
friends of the late General McMurdo, who
joined him in. his Delagoa Bay Railway en
terprise, seem sanguine of getting Mr.
Blaine to espouse their quarrel with
Portugal, and to compel that thievish
State to give up the railway which
they have unjustifiably seized. The Delagoa
Company held its meeting to-day, and judg
ing trom the exultant tone prevailing, it
would appear as though Portugal as a nation
had been already wiped out. They talk
of stopping Portugese credit at all
the bourses in Europe to stigmatize
as her a breaker of covenants, and in En
glish parlance, "send her to Coventry." An
effort is also being made to indnce Lord
Salisbury to have a turn at the merry game
for the bondholders' ;benefit, but his. lord
ship seems camions.
The boures are pressing Portugal, and
Salisbury doubtless has a vivid recollection
of what came about the last time England
interfered with them, therefore I think
Delagoa Bay shareholders are just a trifle
too sanguine, though if diplomatic pressure
can do anything Portugal ought to yield.
At a British Cabinet council to-day it
was decided to send additional warships to
Delagoa Bay.
A Petition In the Honse of Commons Folly
Three miles Lone.
London, June 29. Last Tuesday Mr.
Stevenson, in the Honse of Commons, begged
leave to introduce a petition signed by Gen
eral Booth, of the Salvation Army, other
members of that valuable organization,
and citizens to the number'of 465,500. The
petitioners said that they had heard with
great satisfaction that a bill was before the
House for the closing of public houses on
Sunday, and they humbly entreated that
honorable body to pass the bill during the
present session of Parliament.
Mr. Stevenson was given leave to present
his petition, but he did not It was too big.
It had been brought to StStephen's in three
cabs, towered higher than the Speaker's
desk, and was said to be three miles long.
The house was ' moved to laughter when
Admiral Field rose to ask, in entire good
faith, whether Mr. Stevenson hadmade him
self familiar with the signatures, according
to the rules, before presenting it, bnt the
petition was referred to the proper commit
tee, and a gang of men got it out of the
way. The Salvation Army had enhanced its
influence with Parliament only the day be
fore by organizing a row in the street and
fighting the police.
Despite tho "Wild Work of the Peace Con
eress. All is Serene.
London, June 29. The discomfiture of
the war-scare monger has been completed
this week by the ostentations manner in
which the Czar and the German Emperor
have been making preparations .for
holiday making, and by the surmis
ing peacefulness with which the Servians
have celebrated the five hundredth anni
versary of the day upon which the Turks
smashed up the Servian Empire on the
battlefield of Kossoro. Some remarks
by the 'Emperor of Austria 'fluttered
the bourses for an hour or
two, but His Majesty's ministers have
promptly explained that he spoke in a
purely Pickwickian sense. Europe immedi

drinks, without which just now life would
not be worth living. s

has been passing resolutions, the enforce
ment of which would deluge the entire con

United in the Person of the Charm
ing Bride of Yonng Dahlgren. .
Joins the Fortunes of a Millionaire's Daugh
ter and an Admiral's Son.
The Ceremony Taklns Place In the Presence of a
Distinguished Company.
Miss Elizabeth Drexel, daughter of the
late millionaire banker, Joseph Drexel, and
John Vinton Dahlgren, son of the late Ad
miral Dahlgren, were f wedded yesterday
morning. Archbishop Corrigan performed
the ceremony in the presence of distin
guished guests. Diamonds and innumer
able valuable presents were bestowed upon
the bride.
New Yobk, June 29. Miss Elizabeth
Drexel and Mr. John Vinton Dahlgren were
married at 11 o'clock this morning It was
the most fashionable wedding of the season.
The ceremony was performed at the Fifth
Avenue Cathedral with all the pomp of the
Roman Catholic Church. Miss Drexel is
the daughter of the late Joseph Drexel, the
banker and millionaire. She has been con
spicuous in society ever since her debut
several years ago. She is a tall, slender
young woman, with dark hair and eyes, pale
complexion and self-possessed manners. She
is said to be a good amateur artist She is
in .her 22d year. -
Mr. Dahlgren is the son of the late Ad
miral Dahlgren, -and is of the same age as
his wife. He is somewhat taller than she,
very slender and pale, with a large head
and rather stern features. He graduated
lrom Georgetown College this year. These
voune peoDle have started in life under the
most auspicious circumstances, and with
the good wishes of hosts of friends. The
number and beauty of the wedding presents
bear testimony to this fact. The Cathedral
was crowded long before the hour set for the
wedding. The soft, radiant glow of light
that penetratedjts recesses made it seem a
cool and pleasant retreat from the hot street.
It was a hot morning, and many a stiff
linen collar was wilted before its owner
reached this haven. There had not been
much attempted in the way of decoration.
Lots of growing palms and "ferns of beauti
ful varieties were placed around the chancel
and on the altar were, two tower-shaped
bunches of dark jacqueminot roses. About
a score of hyacinths in riots stood near the
chancel rail.
Messrs. Thomas Bayard, so'n of ex-Secretary
Bayard; George W. Childs Drexel, of
Philadelphia; Thomas Jenkins, of Balti
more; Edward Hosmer, William Bliss,
Harry Martin, Horace Wylie, Count Pierre
De Chambrun, of Washington; C. Stacey
Clarke, of New York, and Manuel de la
Cueva, Vice Consul of Spain at New York,
were among.the guests. The wedding party
was promptly on time. Mrs. Joseph Drexel,
the mother of the bri.de, was shown to
a pew that had been reserved for her.
She had laid aside her mourning for the oc
casipn.and wQreOut.elaborate.gown of laven
der and white, with a train, brocaded in
silver and draped with old point lace. The
corsage was cut V-shape and adorned with
a point lace scarf and diamonds. The
bride's dress was
It was of thick white satin, with a long
train heavy enough to strain most men's
shoulders. The front was draped in rare
point d'Alencon lace, 150 'years old, and
valued at $2,000. The garniture of the
drapery was orange blossoms fastened with
diamond pins. The corsage was cut square
and edged with heavy white braided cord
with long tassel ends. The neck was
trimmed with the same rare point d'Alencon
lace, and the veil was made of the same
delicate fabric. It was arranged on her
head with a magnificent tiara of diamonds,
a present from her mother, and secured with
sprays of orange blossoms fastened with dia
mond pins. White satin slippers, trimmed
with pearl-spangled bows, and white suede
gloves, completed her costume.
She carried a large bouquet of nephetos
roses tied with a 'satin ribbon, and a prayer
book presented to her by the bridegroom's
mother. This prayer-book is a marvel. It
is bound in vellum and the covers are orna
mented with a cross, crown and anchor of
diamonds, rubies and sapphires of large
size and great brilliancy. It cost a small
fortune. The bridesmaids were Miss Lucy
and Miss Kate Drexel, sisters of the bride;
Miss Helen Dudley, of this city, and Miss
Ulrica Dahlgren, sister of the bridegroom.
Upon the arrival of the bridal party the
"Coronation March," from the "Prophets,"
was rendered. The procession was then
lormed in tne leu outer entry. Jnrst came
the ushers, two abreast, then the four brides
maids in the same order, then the bride on
the arm of John B. Drexel, her cousin.
Mrs. Joseph Drexel, who had left
her seat and joined the bridal party,
headed the procession and returned
to her pew. The bridegroom and his best
man, Mr. Eric Dahlgren, his brother, met
before the altar. The music ceased as the
party stepped within the chancel rail. Arch
bishop Corrigan sat at the foot of the altar
awaiting the bride and groom. He wore his
mitre, and his right hand held the crozier.
The nuptial mass then followed and was
beautiful-and impressive.
After the Archbishop had concluded the
marriage ceremonv Dr. McDonald whis
pered to the bridegroom, and he produced
a ring and placed it on the bride's finger.
It was afternoon when the mass was over,
and the bridal procession re-formed to
march down the center aisle. The newly
wedded couple went first, while the organ
ist played Mtndelsshon's Wedding March,
and as soon as they reached their carriage
they got in and drove to the residence ot
the bride's mother, 103 Madison avenue.
Delmonico had a breakfast ready in the
dining-room, and thither, after congratulat
ing the young husband and wife, the guests
repaired. Mr. and Mrs. Dahlgren stood in
the front parlor, where they received their
friends. Early in the afternoon they took a
train for South Mountain, Md., where Mrs.
Dahlgren, the bridegroom's mother, was
awaiting them, having been unable to at
tend the wedding. Here Mr. and Mrs.
Dahlgren will spend their honeymoon.
The bridal gifts were displayed in the
Sicture gallery and engraving room of Mrs.
irexel's house before the wedding. A chain
with locket and diamonds came from Mrs.
Dahlgreen. the bridegroom's sister; an em
erald and diamond star pin was presented
by one of the bride's sisters. There
were diamonds and other jewels in profusion
valuable bric-a-brac, paintings and objects
de art innumerable. The most unique was
the gift of the groom. It is a curious, large
silver ring, with a ruby at the top, and is
the famous engagment ring which Martin
Luther gave to Catharine Von Bora, his be
trothed. It has been in the possession of
the Dahlgren family since 1625.

Philadelphia, June 29. Judges Fell,
'Wilson, Bregy and Gordon composing the
License Conrt held an executive session to
day and at its conclusion granted the brew
ers and bottlers licenses applied for, by the
ProspectBrewingCompany. Judge Gordon,
however, dissented from the opinion filed
by his colleagues, and placed on record a
short paper in which he briefly gives his
reasons for so doing. While the court was
in session quite a number of people who
were interested in the result collected about
the court room, and their opinions as to the
probable outcome were freely given. The
Court 'made the following order:
Andnow, June 29, 1889. in obedience to" tho
decision of the Supreme Conrt, it is ordered
that the petition be granted and that a licenso
be granted as prayed for.
This' order was made upon both of the
petitions for brewer and bottlers' license
and was signed by Judges -bell; w also n
and Bregy. Jndge Gordon did not sign,
but filed the following paper with the peti
tions: Though no writ has yet been served upon us
in theso vases peremptorily commanding us to
issue these licenses, and I would preter wait
ing until such formal proceedings were taken
by the Sfcpreme Court, I yet do not wish to dis
sent from my brethren at this rime
in Utelr prompt course. Tbe con
sequences of our compulsory action are so
important, however, and it seems to me the
opinion ot the Chief Justice, stripped ot its
epithetsyis by its radical terms and general
method' ol characterization so far reaching
and, creative of so much incongruity in the
whole subject of licensing, both wholesale and
retail, that I reserve the right at a later day
for setting forth at length my reason foraction,
in obedience to the mandatory precepts of the
Appellate Court, together with such observa
tions on the law and facts as are pertinent to
the subject. I do not wish by any present
action, however, to certify to what the Supreme
Court designates the "insensible" Conclusion
that this corporation is "a citizen of temperate
habits and good moral character," yet, while
tbe license is obliged to be granted, I cannot be
forgetful of tbe law stated by the sams
tribunal, that only "citizens" possessing such
"moral" qualifications are entitled to a license
under our statute. James Gat Gobpon.
The future action of the Court under the
decision of the Supreme Court has not yet
been determined upon, but will probably be
at an early day.
Chicago Has Annexed Enough Territory to
be 174 miles Square.
Chicago, June 29. The question of the
annexation to Chicago of the closely ad
joining suburbs of Hyde Park, Lakeview,
Cicero and Jeflerson was voted on
to-day. The campaign which has
been conducted for several weeks
past was a spirited one and both sides have
been making a tremendous struggle. The
Anti's were.generally headed by the pres
ent office holders in the suburban govern
ments, who made a bitter fight against com
ing into the city. While the official
vote from all the points has not yet been an
nounced, there is no room for doubt, from
the figures receiyed, that all the suburbs
named have been carried by the annexa
tionists. ,
The various towns give to Chicago an ad
ditional population of nearly 200,000,
bringing the total up to probably 1,100,000.
The territory annexed will give Chicago a
total area (approximately estimated), of
about 174 square miles, making it the
largest city in area in the United States.
All of the subnrban towns annexed are
built up solidly for miles.radiating from the

Piper had paid the advance, and their men
were at work, to do likewise on Monday. It
is not known yet for certain what action the

will take, out the advance having been
granted at Gallitzin, it is likely that the ad

Seven persons are now under indictment
for the murder of Dr. Cronin. Of these five,
including Martin Burke, are in custody.
Patrick Cooney and John Kunze are still
at large. Alexander Sullivan has not yet
been indicted, but his case will be continued
before another grand jury. His friend,
Lawyer Beggs, is one of the seven.
Chicago, June 29. The clock in Judge
Shephard's courtroom registered the hour of
5:10 this afternoon when the special grand
jury which has
been investigating
the Cronin mystery
filed into.the room
with their report
Every juror an
swered to fiis name
as the Clerk called
the roll, and as the
.call was completed
Judge Shepard,
who had been wait
ing since 4:30
o'clock, addressed
Foreman Clough:
Patrick Cooney.
"Have you a report to make?"
"We have," and a document upon which
all eyes fastened with eager interest was
handed to the Judge.
"Have'you further business gentlemen?"
was the next query. ,
"I think we have finished what we have
to do." " .
"Then you may be excused from any fur
ther service."
With this stereotyped conversation ended
the work of the grand jury.
The report indicted seven men, of whom
three were already in jail under previous
indictments Coughlin, O'Sullivan and
Woodruff and a fourth, John F. Beggs,
was under arrest on suspicion. The fifth
man was Martin Burke, tbersuspect in cus
tody at Winnipeg. The sixth and- seventh
men indicte'd are still at large Patrick
Cooney, "The Fox," and John Kunze, a
friend of Detective Coughlin, whose alleged
complicity was onlybrought to the attention
of the authorities within the past two days.
Within an hour after the return of the
indictment a capias had been made out for
John F. Beggs, v the senior guardian of
I Camp 20, of the Clan-na-Gael, whose place
iu ueieubiuu uas vceu iu a uuwu-iuvu police
station. He was at once transferred to a
cell near the other accused in murderers'
row at the county jail. None of the pris
oners or suspects were represented in court
when the grand jury reported to Judge
Shepard. Few persons at all were present
besides officials except a number of news
paper men.
After the last formalities of the long in
quisition were ended, State's Attorney
Longenecker-told a number of reporters
that he had not yet dropped the case in its
relation to Alexander Sullivan. The Stale's
Attorney claimed that the grand jury had
been unable, owing to the expiration of its,
term, to hear all the evidence that could be
presented against Mr. Sullivan. The in
quiry as to Sullivan would be continued to
the "next juryt ' Whether it would be
another special,panel or the regular body
could not at present De stated.
It was conceded by Mr. Longenecker in
private conversation that up to the moment
that the term ot the grand jury expired the
authorities had not secured sufficient evi
dence upon which Sullivan could be con
victed. An indictment of him, therefore,
so the State's Attorney reasoned, would trn
doubtedlyiresulc in an immediateftrial and
acquittal, barring forever any other pro
ceedings, a result which, from Mr. Longe
necker's standpoint, was not to be desired.
looking for an informer.
Another reason for the State Attorney's
course is said to be a hope on his part that
before the trial of the men indicated is
ended some of them may be indicted
through hope of saving their own necks to
give evidence directly incriminating Sulli
van. Ever since the investigation into the mur
der of Dr. Cronin began there has been a
persistent search for a policeman who ap
peared at Dinan's livery stable late on the
night of Dr. Cronin's death and inquired if
all the horses were in. It was at Dinan's
stable and on the order of Detective Cough
lin that tlie horse and buggy were secured
in which Dr. Cronin was decoyed to his
It was a natural supposition that the po
liceman who inquired whether the horses
were all in, had this particular horse in
mind and that he was therefore implicated
in the crime. It is said that John Delaney,
lockup keeper at the East Chicago avenue
station, which is about a block distant from
Dinan's stable, is the man. Delaney is a
member of the notorious Camp No. 20.
Delanev. when questioned about the mat
ter, made a nervous denial of the truth, bnt
showed signs of breaking down.
Strong Evidence to be Produced Agnlnat
Rome of the Cronin Suspects.
Chicago, June 29. Kunze, the Cronin
suspect, whose name became talked about
for the first time to-day is a picture frame
maker, who spent a good deal of time
around the Chicago avenue police station,
to which Detective Coughlin was
attached. Kunze is supposed to
have driven Coughlin to the Carl
son cottage the fatal night of May
4. States Attorney Longenecker talks very
positively about having evidence enough
to surely hang Coughlin and Kunze. It is
intimated that the State has in reserve two
witnesses who will swear to seeing Coflgh
lin and Kunze near tbe cottage that night,
and equally direct testimony against Cooney
and Burke. One of the witnesses is said to
be a member of Camp 20. The evidence
against Beggs is understood to consist
chiefly of suspicious passages in his corres
pondence with his superior officer in Clan-na-Gael,
Edward Spellman, of Peoria.

The Big Amount of Money Involved In a
Minneapolis Real Estate Title.
Minneapolis, Minn., June 29. A sen
sational land title snit is about to be insti
tuted here which involves 51,000,000 worth
of property in the heart of the city. The
property in question is block 67, Minneap
olis, and is bounded by Third. and Fourth
streets and Fourth and Filth avenues south.
Upon it is situated the Minneapolis Cham
ber of Commerce's magnificent stone build
ing. A. C. Brown, a young attorney, in
looking over soma musty old records re
cently found what he conceived to be a flaw
in the title running back to the year 1855,
before the town was platted. He investi
gated further and became still more confi
dent He, with capitalists who are backing
him, has recently seenred quit claim deeds,
and will now prosecute, the claim for all
there is in it
It is said that other valuable land in that
vicinity is also involved, Brown has to
day for record the transfer of two more lots
in block 67 for 5500 each. The Chamber of
Commerce people are totally oblivious to
what is going on. Neither President Loring
nor Secretary Sturtevant could be found
his afternoon, but it was learned that while
the bnilding was being constructed a flaw
in the title was discovered and work was
suspended for some time. It was supposed
at the time that everything had been
straightened out.

Hope3 for a SatisJactoiy Settlement of toe Homestead
Steel Scale.
There will be no strike among the iron
workers this year, ancLFittsburg's chief in
dustry is safe for that period. A number
of the largest firms have already signed the
scale prepared by the Amalgamated Asso
ciation, and the others are confidently ex
pected to follow suit It 13 also believed
that the troubles at the Edgar Thomson
Steel "Works will be amicably arranged.
There will be no wage trouble in the
iron industry during the year beginning to
morrow, as the A malgamated Association
scale has been practically agreed to by
the manufacturers. Fourteen of the
large iron firms signed the scale
yesterday and the important documents are
in the large safe at th e National Headquar
ters. Others are reported to have signed.
but President Weihe and Secretary Martin
claim nothing until they receive the official
The most important signature was that
of Carnegie, Phipps & Co. This firm signed
for their two large iron mills at Twenty
ninth and Thirty-third streets. The other
firms who have signed are appended:
Riverside Iron and Steel Company,
of Cincinnati; Maumee Rolling Mill Com
pany, of Toledo; Elba Jron and Bolt Works,
Pittsburg; P. L. Kimberly & Co., Green
ville, Pa.; Brown, Bonnell & Co., Youngs
town; Brown & Co., "Wayne Irpn Works,
this city; Standard Iron Company, Bridge
port, O.; iEtna Iron and Steel Company,
Bridgeport, O.; Republic Iron Company,
Limited, Pittsburg; Steubenville Iron Com
pany at Alieanna, O.; Etna Iron Works,
Limited, of New Castle, Pa.; New Albany
Structural Mill, of New Albany, Ind., and
the Mahoning Valley Iron Company, of
mill workers pleased.
The workers are well pleased with the
prospects for steady employment for another
year, and are surprised that so many have
agreed to their terms so soon. A delay
of even two weeks in signing would'
not have been an indication of trouble,
as most of the iron firms will have to repair
their plants and will delay signing until the
last minute. A mimberof firms are so
crowded with orders that they cannot afford
to take time for repairs at present, and will
continue in operation until a more favora
ble time for the work.
Other big firms are expected to fall into
line to-morrow, or within the next few days,
including the Pittsburg Forge and Iron
Company, this concern being crowded with
orders, Oliver Bros. & Phillips, also with,
many orders on hand and some in view, and
Jones & Laughlins.
. Mr. D. B. Oliver, of Oliver Bros. &
Phillips, visited the Amalgam"3teiItA.ssocia- V.
tion headquarters yesterday afternoon and
held a two hours consultation with the
officials on tbe scale. There are
some objectionable features
for this concern m the scale which they "de
sire to have estimated. These features-do
not particularly affect the firms who have
signed, but do seriously affect this com
pany. The workers have lopped
off so many extras in the scale
in order to avoid a conflict with the manu
facturers that they do not care to make any
further concessions. They do not doubt but
that a satisfactory agreement will be reached
at a conference to be held to-morrow.
When the mill committeevisited the office
of Carnegie, Phipps & Co. yesterday after
noon, to talk on the scale, they found they
had plain sailing. The scale for the Thirty
third street mill was signed without a word,
but there was a hitch in the one for the
Twenty-ninth street mill. To this scale
was added one for the Universal plate
mill. Tbe prices included in this scale
were not at all satisfactory to the firm and
they were not agreed to until the matter had
been discussed for about two hours. Some
slight changes were probably made, and
both sides separated well satisfied over the
The signing of the Amalgamated Associa
tion scale by this great concern, which em
ploys 16,000 men, is an indication that it is
not fighting labor organizations, as has been
the impression since the trouble at the Edgar
Thomson steel works and the ultimatum con
sisting of a sliding scale proposed for the big
steel plant at Homestead. If the men at the
steel works accept the company's proposi
tion they will be compelled to leave the or
ganization, but this matter has not yet been
considered. No one has yet signed, and
when Chairman Abbott was asked
yesterday abont what would be done he
had nothing to say, but he did not seem to
be worried over the result, and, in fact, ap
peared pleased over the prospect An ar
rangement may be made whereby the work:
can be run as usual and the men remain in
their organization. If both sides decide
on a fight it will undoubtedly be a bitter
one. The men are in good shape financially
for a lockout, and the firm is wealthy and
can afford to close their works. Over 2,000
skilled steel workers are needed to operate
this plant, and it will be a difficult matter
to secure that number of skilled non-union
men. Over 4,000 men are employed at the
two iron mills of this firm,
All the members of the Amalgamated
Association'who were seen, last evening
agreed that there would be no disturbance
whatever in the iron industry, and if there
is any trouble at all it will be in the
steel departments. All trouble in this lisa
will be avoided if the Homestead scale is
signed, they say, as manufacturers who have
looked at the Carnegie scale state they can
not compete with them unless the wages
paid are uniform.
J. he list or 14 scales signed given aoova
are official, and were obtained at head
quarters. Telegrams were received at this
office late last night from Youngstown and
Wheeling,- giving the names of three add!-
tional concerns that have signed. 'They are
the Andrews Iron Company, of Haselton,
Summers Bros. & Co., of Struthers, O., and
the Crescent Iron Company, of Wheeling.
Tbe scale for the Millvale Iron Company,
limited, the company that are operating
Graff, Bennett & Co.'s old works, was also
signed. These scales will not be received at -headquarters
until Monday, and are there
