tlw Cam Luk Dillon to Tcotifr.
ClHt AfiO, June 6. Ail the evidenco in
the C ronin inquest was directed toward
e-tahlishing the fact that the deceasec
wa firmly impressed with the Idea that
his life was eiidanptred through the ma
chinations of Alexander Sullivan. Mau
rice Morris, a member of the Clan na
ael, said that, at the last convention, ht
had heard several delegates srt that Cro
nin and Dr. McCahey, of Philadslphla,
ought to be gotten rid of. Cronln had
told him tiiat he belie ed McGeehan,
the Philadelphian, had come to CJiicapc
at the inntiputton of Alex Sullivan, to
kill him. Joiieph O'Byrne, eecior guar
dian of Camp 3ot!t swore that on the day
liofoi the physician disappeared, Cronin
had told him that ho was badly broken
up and discouraped, and that he be
lieved he would pive up and let tho
rascals, Alex Sullivan and Itecorder of
I'olice Slicliaid Itoland. of Kansas City,
complete their murderous designs and
kill him. O'Hyme went on to sav that
he had heard M'HiWhan say that Ciwiin
and McCahey ought to be kill.'d, liecause
they were scouiidrcls. lie had heard
that there was a trial in Camp 30, but
knew nothing dclinite on the jnint. lit
did not, however, believe that Cronia
was a t niitor.

Closely presstsl. he admitted that ru
mors that Cioiiin hail Isx-n tried and con
victed came to him through friends o
the laji r. I Mctiary. a Xjikeview
boiler maker and intimate friend of the
dead man, pave his evidence with sc
much dramatic effect that once or twice
he was applauded. He ti-slitied that
( Yonin had several limes told him that
bis life was in danger, that Alex. Sulli
van, if he was murdered, would be
found to be the instigator and that there
were pat icrs in his wife that would con
nect Sullivan with the divl. WituesF
told how he. went to Toronto and met
long, the rcxrler. who was responsible
for the circumstantial stories regarding
Cronui having lioeu seen in that citv.
Jlctiary olfercd him ?'.'.l)mi to suubtuh
tiaU' what he had written, but h could
not do it. Instead he Maid: "I wi.-Ji to
iiI I bail never bad anything to do with
this tttsinesw." lie had heard that Ice
iH-ah r Sullivan, Detective CVmghhii and
Detective Whaleil were InemtnTS of
Camp 2i. it was a matter of daily con- j
versatioti nmong tho memlierj of the
clan that there was a conspiracy to kill
Cronin. At one meeting of Camp 20,1
when tl.e witneM remarked that the
man who pave LeC'aron his credent itdi
vviis worse than LeCaron himself, l jiw
ycr li'iss rematked: "Them must lie
tin ion and unitv among Irishmen, even
if Uieie has to le war."'
Crealfil a Neusation.
Closely nuestioned, the witness said
that tlio man who pave I-C :utron hit
credentials was Lawrence II. litiekley ol
this city. This created a sensation. Re
Koning to another question the witness
said dramatically: "I thank Clod Unit I
don't Islong to any organization ol
which Alex. Sullivan is a niemUT, for 1
consider that man is the cause of all the
disgrace and shirs that have been put
uj'on the Irish people. '
The bust witness was Byron C. Smith,
rrsceiverof the Traders' bank. Heshowed
bv chei-ks on tile and ledger entries that
iii the summer of lw"-2 Alex. Sullivan
had altogether $lHU"!in the bank, of
which MO .Out) was a personal account
and the balance credited to "Alex. Sul

State's Attorney Longeneiker, Chief

ni-liL Dillon is to lie called as a w itnost
and is willing to tell all that he know
concerning tlie conspiracy against Dr.
Cronin. He is anxious at tho same
time to preserve, the secrets of the Clan-Na-tla-H
so far as its written work it
cono-med. He considers that in a
measure the oath of secrecy has been
removed from the members of the or
ptuiization, but only so far as the doinps
of the particular camp that condemned
the Nationalist to death is con
cerned. On this jioint tin
otlicials do not apree with him, and when
he is put upon the stand to-day an effort
will la? made to compel him to exsise
the inner nullifications of the organiza
tion. The iolice authorities confirm the
report that the expressman w ho hauled
the furniture from the Clark street Hat to
the Lakeview cottage lias lieen found.
He will lie plaited on the stand to-uior-row,
and his evidence will go far toward
fastening the crime on certain susjiected
individ tials.

"Did you know that the legend 'E
Pluribus Unuui,' which has appeared on
diilerent United States coins, was never
authori3od to be so plaoed by law?" said
a cnniismati&t. " "It was first used in
tliat way in 1736. There was no United
States mitit then, but there was a private
one at Newburg, N. Y., and the motto
cf the United States was first placed on
a copper coin struck at that mint. Few
collections have specimens of this coin.
They ere valuable. In 1 787 a goldsmith
named Brasher coined a piece which
was known as the $10 gold piece, and Uie
motto placed in this form, 'Unum E
Pluribus,' was stamped upon It. The
coin is worth today $3,000, and only four
are known to be in existence, in 17S7
tlie motto also appeared on various copper
coins of the State of New Jersey.
"A great many of cur early coins,
before thero was any legal authority for
national coinage here, were made In
England. The State of Kentucky liad
some peculiar copper coins which were
minted in England in 1701 and bore the
national motto. The United States mint
was established in 1792, but the use of
the motto on any of the gold, silver or
copper coins was not authorized or
directed by any of the provisions of the
act establishing it. The motto had not
appeared on any of our coins since 137
until the present silver dollar was coined.
It remained on our early gold and silver
coins until 1834, when it was omitted
from the gold coins. In 1826 it was
dropped from the silver twenty-five cent
piece and the following year from all
silver coins." Philadelphia Press.
A Mouker Felo I Hi Sc.
Not long ago the authenticated case
of tlx t suicide of a dog from grief at
being beaten by its master was chron
icled, and now we read of a monkey de
stroying itself tinder very remarkable
circumstances. The facts of the case,
which are positively vouched for by a
corresxntlent writing to a Paris con
temporary from Montrichard, in the de
partment of Loir-et-Cher, are as follows:
A learned monkey, named Bertram, was
deeply attached to its owner, who, nmong
other tricks, had taught it to fire a pistol
w hile galloping on the back of a dog.
The master of the animal, it feems,
lately met with certain domestic troubles,
and, in a dejected frame of mind a few sent a bullet through his
head, death being instantaneous. The
monkey was present at the death of his
master, and probably took in every par
ticular. In any case, w hen a doctor was
called in to see if life was extinct in the
man, he was astonished to find himself
iopresenee of a double suicide, the
monkey's body being stretched beside
that of his master, with the revolver
clasped between its fingers. It is stated
that the animal picked up the pistol
after his master liad blown out his
brains and imitated what he had just
seen done, sending a bullet through his
head precisely as tho man had done.

The Voltale Battery.
At tho very beginning of the present
century Volta, stimulated by Galvani's
recent discovery of what ho called "am
mat electricity," invented the "pile" and
the "crown of cups." Wo now speak of
any equivalent arrangement ns a voltaic
battery. Without attempting to trace
out the path of discovery and invention
pursued by Volta, it will be sufficient for
our purpose if we make clear the gene
ral construction and action of such un
If a plate of zinc and a similar one of
copper be nearly immersed in water con-
taininga little sulphuric acid, which may
bo held in any suitable vessel, no note
worthy action will bo apparent so long
as the metals do not touch; but if they
be brought in contact, or bo joined bv
means of a conductor, bubbles of hydro
gen gas will at once appear on tho sur
face of the copper, and the zinc will
more or less rapidly dissolve to form
zinc sulphate with the acid.
If the plates be separated, and the por
tion of the zinc which remains above
the liquid lie tested with a very delicate
electroscope, it will . be found to be
charged with negative electricity, and in
like manner the corresponding portion of
tho copper plata will be found to be
charged w ith positive electricity. Pro

ririitjr of Oil.
The fear that there would bo an oil
famine in the near future has been ex-
pressed again and again; but the figures
given by The Oil city Derrick and in
dorsed by BratUtreet go to show that
the Pennsylvania and Virginia belt alone
is practically inexhaustible. So far the
yield from this tract of 204 square miles
lias been over S-IO.COO.OOO barrels. Tie
cstiiuato is that the possible future yield
will not be far from 2.COO.CC0.C00. This
estimate makes no refeence to the fields
that exist in Canada, in Colorado, Cali
fornia and elsewhere, both at homo and
abroad. Tlie yield per square mile has
boon for fifteen years l.WW.OOO barrels.
There seems to lie no reason to fear that
the cil supply will fail before its eubsti
tute is fully established. Ut. Louis

The ElflVt Tower.
The whelo tower could be lifted by
four men of average strengtli. The case
has been proved. When it was about
half its present height a few menuctually
did lift it. This is not humbug: tiie
thing is perfectly simple. The construo-
ticn of the tower is based on the canti
lever principle, and its bulk of C400 tons
is so adjusted as to press on Uie founda
tion with less weight than that of a man
in an armcliair on the floor.
Is the tower "beautiful? No. But it
has the erect," fragile looking elegance
of au olieliak not hewn out of rod granite.
but knit of dark hued meshes. Eiuilo
