General Boulanger FinallyConuemned
by the Senate Court,

Two of Whom Were Included With Their
Chief in the Conviction.
A'OTIIUCH HOPE FOE MRS. MAIBKICK.
The Jadje Who Tried Her His as Interriew With
the Home Secretary.
General Boulanger has been adjudged?
guilty of treason to France by the Senate
court. After making a fight against the
jurisdiction of the body his friends with
drew irom all participation in the trial.
Meetings are being held in favor of Mrs.
Maybrick, but the prospect is not bright.
IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
Pakis, August 13. The attention of all
Paris nas to-day riveted upon the Senate
Court, which ha3 been trying General
Boulanper, but a few short weeks ago the
popular idol, on a charge of treason to
France. The scene in the Chamber during
the final hours of the deliberations was a
most impressive one, although at tinles the
war of words was of a decidedly tumultuous
order. Boulanger's friends composed a very
bmall minority of the body, but they made a
brave fight for their absent chief.
Nearly all of the Senators were early in
their seats, and the moment the gavel of the
presiding officer fell the fight commenced.
The members of the Bight, few in number,
but strong in voice and purpose, again pro
tested that the Senate had no jurisdiction in
the case. The war of words became fast and
furious and, at times, personal, it being en
tirely probable that a couple of quiet morn
ing duels will result from the offense taken
at some of the remarks.
THEY LEFT IN DISGUST.
But the majority had already determined
how all of the points should be decided, and
the fiery eloquence of a dozen orators of the
opposition was poured forth in vain. The
members of the Bight gave up the struggle
in despair, and declined to take further part
in the proceedings in the case.
The remainder of the court discussed at
length its course of procedure and its com
petency to try General Boulanger. His
friends having -nearly all withdrawn, the
debate was now more peaceful, and the de
cisions were reached with considerable
unanimity. It was finally decided by a
vote of 201 to 70 the court was competent to
try the General on all the counts of the in
dictment Two of the Senators refrained
The taking of evidence in the case was
then resumed. Quite a sensation was
created when five lodgers in the house of
Madame Pourpres swore that the General
was in Paris on July 15, 1887, the day on
which it is alleged lie visited the city in
disguise. Madame Pourpres is the lady who
accompanied the General on his recent
flying trip to Brussels. A mass of other
testimony, the most of which had but little
direct bearing, was hurriedly presented.and
everything was ready for the last aet of the
drama or farce, as many persist in calling
it because of the absence of the accused.
A VERDICT OP GUILTY.
Amid perfect silence the final ballot was
taken, and it was soon announced that the
court had by 20G votes found the General
guilty of conspiracy. Six of the Senators
did not vote. The court found Count
Billon and M. Bochefort guilty of com
plicity in the plot. It was decided by a
vote of 198 to 10 that Boulanger was guilty
of a treasonable attempt against the State
in connection with the Lyons depot incident.
Not satisfied with this the State Council
has annulled the elections in 12 cantons in
which General Boulanger was elected to
the Councils General, on the ground that
the General was not legally eligible for the
Irasition. General Boulanger has written a
etter in which he states that he gave the
sums of money which, he is accused of em
bezzling to the chief clerks in the War
Office to be used for the relief of widows and
orphans of soldiers.
A large number of Americans were pres
ent during the cession of the court. Among
them were Thomas A. Edison and Mr. Bus
tell Harrison. Later in the day these two
gentlemen ascended the EifTel'Tower and
took luncheon at the summit. A num
ber or artists from the opera were present
and sang into a phonagraph, which after
ward produced their airs.

ISFECTAL TXLZOBAM TO THE D18FATCR.1
Washington, August 13. General
James B. Coit, now a practicing attorney of
this city, late chief of the old army and
navy division of the pension bureau under
the Cleveland administration, Colonel of the
Fourteenth Begiment of Connecticut Volun
teers, and a Brevet Brigadier General, who
carries eight wounds as his war trophies, has
purchased the scaffold on which the hero
John Brown and several of his associates
were hanged, and it is now on its way to
this city, and will soon be employed in a
way that will appeal to the poetry and senti
ment of the whole country.
At the request of the authorities of Jeffer
son county, West Virginia, this scaffold was
erected in Charleston in the last days of
November, 1859, and on the 2d of Decem
ber of that yearthebody of oldOssawatomie
Brown was Bwung from its cross bar. It
was taken down and stored in the jail yard
and re-erected on the 16th of December for
the hanging of Edwin Coffoe, Shields,
Greene, John E. Cooke and John Copeland.
something of a history.
On the 16th of March of the following year
it was again erected and did duty for the exe
cution oi Albert Hazlett, alias William
Harrison, alias William Hayslett and Aaron
D. Stevens. When the ghastly history waa
ended, Cockrill asked what he would do
with the scaffold, and he was told to dis
pose of it as he pleased by Hon. Braxton B.
Davenport, President of the Court of Jeffer
Cockrill transformed the scaffold into the
frame work for a portico for the house of his
friend Daniel Sheets, at the corner of Lib
erty and Lawrence streets, in Charleston,
and there it remained for years. As time
changed and events wrought a new estimate
of Brown, even in the minds of his enemies,
it was recognized that in-Tuture years con
siderable value might be placed upon these
historical timbers. In the autumn of 1883
they were bought by John M. Coyle, and
stored away in the second story of thojail
building under lock and key. ,
These facts are attested bv numerous citi
zens of Charleston, by Andrew-Hunter, the
attorney who prosecuted the cases against
the insurgents, Dr. G. F. Mason, who ex
amined the bodies of the executed men, by
David H. Cockrill, who built toe scaffold,

his -father; by Frederic Douglass, who

THE GENUINE ARTICLE.
There is no doubt of the genuineness of
the relic. Curious to Know what disposal
General Coit would make of the scaffold the
correspondent of The Dispatch called at
the residence of that gentleman this evening
and inquired regarding the matter.
I was in Kansas at the time of the Kansas-Nebraska
difficulty," said the general,
"and was a great admirer of John Brown,
though I never saw him. Having some bus
iness at Charleston recently I discovered the
existence of the scaffold, and it occurred' to
me that instead of allowing it to be hawked
about, possibly by fakirs and speculators, it
might be put to a serious and sacred use. I
am interested In some property on the histori
cal Bolivar Heights, overlooking the Shen
andoah and Harper's Ferry. It is a beautiful
spot, commanding a magaificent view and
overlooking all the region where was en
acted the immortal tragedy of John Brown.
"Once, when stopping there, it seemed to
me that this was the spot of all others for a
monument to the memory of Brown, and,
when I found the scaffold was in existence,
I thought- as Brown earned his undying
name finally on that scaffold, it might be
made more than a quarter of a century later
to earn funds with which to
ERECT A MONUMENT
on the spot overlooking the scene of his
most remarkable exploit. I am a lawyer
and not a showman, but it is my present in
tention, if I can find the proper person to
take charge of the scaffold, to exhibit it,
and appropriate the proceeds, above ex-
Senses, to the erection of this monument,
'n the property of which I speak there is a
fine marble quarry, and of this marble I
would construct the monument I have
offered a portion of the property to the State
of West Virginia for a reform school or
other public Institution.
"It is possible the place may become a
summer resort, as the scenery is grand, and
Harper's Ferry is already a place much vis
ited. In any event, if the monument be
erected I would reserve enough ground to
lay out a pretty park around it.
"I have inquired into the sentiment ot the
people on the snbject, and I do not believe
there would be any serious objection or in
terference. The views of the old inhabitants
have changed greatly in regard to Brown,
many Union soldiers having settled there
abouts, and any who might otherwise ob
ject would probably be silenced by the fact
that any additional attraction would bring
people and money to the town. This is the
way I have arranged the matter in my mind.
Possibly I may find obstacles in the way I
have not thought of, but I hope .not."
A FUTURE BEFORE IT.
Though the General did not s&y so defi
nitely, ft is probable the scaffold will be
placed in one of the public museums here
after it has earned a monument fofold
Ossawatomie Brown. General Coit was the
first man in Connecticut to enlist for the
war, though General Hawley claims that
distinction. The news of the firing on Fort
Sumter was received at his home in Nor

rolled his name and had organized a com

Bailroad traffic is considerably interrupted
and much damaee has been done to prop

between Firth and Table Bock, and at
Tecumseh the rise of the Nepa river drove
many.people from their homes. At Beatiice,
on the Blue river, houses on the bottom lands
were flooded, people escaping in boats. The
new paper mill was swept away and other
small buildings were wrecked. The dam

have been washed away three miles west of
the city. At 10 p. M. one or two Union
Pacific bridges between the city and West
Lincoln were in great danger. Salt Creek
and the salt basins are a vast lake, and the
water has as yet shown no signs of subsid

flooded and the people have moved out of
danger. The city promptly arranged to

If I had known of too Cuticura Remedies
28 years ago it would have saved me f2U0 00

of suffering. My disease (Psoriasis) commenced
on my bead in a spot not larger than a cent.
It spread rapidly all over my body and got
under my nails. The scales would drop off of
me all the time, and my suffering was endless,
and without relief. One thousand dollars
would not tempt me to have this disease over
again. I am a poor mn tut feel rich to be re

doctors and no enm T mnnnt nraiae the CUTI

my skin as clear and free from scales as a

Cuticura, and three bottles of Cuticuba

would have cured me for $200 00 you would

" Is No Fairy Tale,
But a Downright Fact.
It is in this one, but all important particular that it differs from the
so-called sacrifice sales announced by certain houses at present Those
who doubt the genuineness of- our reductions are most earnestly and
sincerely requested to call and be convinced. We want all persons to
set themselves right in this matter, for the result will certainly bear out
our statement. The attention of gentlemen wishing to buy clothing is
called to our
Special )),) (J Counter

Ask for these two counters as soon as you enter our store. You are
at liberty to take any Suit for $j 50, any pair of Pants for gi 50. There
are light patterns and dark patterns; checks, plaids, stripes, mixtures
and solid coloripgs; Cassimeres, Worsteds, Serges, Flannels, Wide'

BOYS' CLOTHING DEPARTMENT
Our buyers are now in the markets, and before the close of this
month the first Fall novelties will put in an appearance. In the mean
time, we shall try our best to clear our counters of this season's goods.
Mothers, there never was a better time to do your purchasing than dur

and, if you are shrewd, you will improve the opportunity by an imme
diate call and purchase. "The earliest bird catches the worm" the
earliest buyers catch the best bargains.
SUMMER COATS AND VESTS. .
We have sold piles of them this season, but, having made oar pur
chases on an extremely large scale, we still have thousands of these
light and airy garments on our counters, and, owing to the far advanced
season, we are quite willing' to part with them not only without our
usual small profit, but with a positive loss. Our white and fancy linen
Drs Vests are also included in this sale.
MEN'S FLANNEL AND SILK SHIRTS
The popularity of our Flannel Shirts is simply immense, and we be
lieve we have sold more of them this summer than any three firms in
this city combined. During this week, however, we propose to break
all records and sell more Flannel Shirts than during any previous week.
How will we do it? Simply by naming prices so low as will tempt the
closest buyers to purchase one or more of. these comfort giving shirts.
All our fine French Flannel and Silk striped goods are included.
