PAris, March 23. The jury in tho
Panama cases rendered a verdict of
guilty in the cases of Charles de Les

Those not guilty were: Marcus Foa

Deputies Dugue, De La Faucounera
Gobron and Antonin Proust.
The court after deliberation, sen
tenced Baihaut to imprisonment for
five years, to pay a fine of 759.0JO
francs and to lose his civil rights.
Blondin is sentenced to imprisonment
for two years and Charles de Lesseps
to imprisonment for one year, the one
year to run currently with five years'
sentence already imposed on him. All

The court also orders De Lesseps,
Blondin and Baihaut to pay Monichori
the liquidator of the Panama Canal
company, 375.00 J francs, the amount
taken from the treasury of the company,
and paid to Baihaut for influence in
favor of the lottery loan bill.
De Lesseps received his sentence
calmly, although the strain of the trial
has rendered him exceedingly haggard
and nervous. When he rose before
the retirement of the jury to reaffirm his
innocence he spoke with difficulty and
occasionally he was silent for almost a
minute to compose his feelings

afterwards he broke down and wept
like a child.
Baihaut talked for an hour in his
cell with his wife and two daughters.
Despite the hopelessness of his case he
was evidently unprepared to bear the
full weight of his sentence, for during
the interview with his family he
sobbed repeatedly and begged for
giveness for the disgrace he brought
upon them. Blodin was hardly less
affected when he bade good-bye to hia
son and daughter.
A Gattly Find.
St Josepu, Mo., March 23. Com pton
McCoy, a farmer residing a few miles
south of this city, on the Missouri
river banns, was duck hunting on a
sandbar when he discovered a large
dry goods box floating with the current.
Be hauled the box to the shore and
breaking it open was nearly over
powered by a terrible stench which
arose from the box. An investigation
disclosed that the box was filled with
dead bodies in an advanced state of de
composition, the remains being so
badly decomposed that indentification
was impossible. Coioner Reynolds
made an investigation and found the
remains were those of four men and
one woman, and appearances indicate
that they have been murdered, the re
mains placed in the box and then set
adrift. The cornmntiity is in a terrible
state of excitement. It is supposed
the remains are those of a family of
emigrants who disappeared in a
mysterious manner from i ear Rnlo,

The I'ope Speaks
Rome, March 23. The pope con -mited
his voice to the wax cylinder of
a phonograph, in a message of good
will, said he designed for the president
of the United States. Having done
this, he said to the American who was
demonstrating the machine: "I hand
yon this message. Guard it carefully,
for it is the expression of my love for
all the people of the United States and
I wish you to deliver it with your own
hand to the president."
Held for Smuggling.
New York, March 23 - Custom offi
cials at this port believe they have dis
covered an attempt to smuggle theatri
cal costumes into the country. Itap
pears a number of Itialian opera singers
arrived here on the steamer New York
Sunday. Each one bad from twenty to
forty trunks and it is said declared to
" the officers that they had nothing duti
able. An examination of the trunks
bowed that they were filled with new
costumes, in all enough for 200 people.
Mr. Abbey said he held bills showing
each individual member of the com
pany had purchased his or her cos
tumes, and they were therefore entitled
tinder the law to admission free of
duty as "tools of trade." There were a
few things, be said, belonging to the
management, and on these be wanted

New Tory, March 21. The fact has
just come to light that just before the
6hip Cyrus Wakefield sailed for an
Francisco on Friday morning two
dynamite bombs were found in her
hold. In consequence of this two of
ficers of the ship refuse 1 to sail on her
and remained in New York, positive in
the belief that tuere is some scheme
afoot to sink the craft before she
reaches San Francisco.
The first case of bombs was found
two weeks ago, when the ship was
loading, between the limber streaks on
the port side of the ship, with planking
laid over it. The dynamite was in an
iron cylinder, from the end of which
protruded a bunch of matches. A
piece of sandstone was suspended
above the matches, in such a position
tbat once at sea, the plunging and roll
ing of the ship would cause the sand
stone to sway against the matches, thus
igniting them and causing the dyna
mite to explode. This discovery caused
no little apprehension among the of
ficers and crew of the ship, but as
there was no address on the case, or
any clew as to how it came to be in the
ship, apprehension was allayed and the
work of loading continued and the in
cident soon forgotten.
Just one week after the first bomb
was found consternation was created
among those on board the Wakefield by
the finding of a second bomb This
was on Thursday last, the day before
the ship was to sail. The bomb was
like the first and was found iu about
the same part of the siiip.
On the finding of the second bomb,
Captain Morton refused to go to sea on
the Wakefield and another officer also
refused. Another captian willing to
take the ship out was found and on
Friday she put to sea.
Emporia, Kan., March 21. The town
of Hartford is agitated over the
mysterious disappearance of E. W. C.
Walton, a young Englishman who had
been visiting here and had started last
month for Steele, Neb. The last seen
of him was in Cansas City February
23. Foul play is suspected.
He is discribed as being 5 feet 8
inches high and having a sandy com
plexion. He was a member of several
different societies, including the Odd
Fellows, Masons and the Ancient or

Boston, March 21. The work of
searching the workshops and cells at
the state prison is practically finished,
and it is said that the convicts will ba
put to work. No firearms have been
found, but enougli other contraband
articles have been found, it is said, to
fill several bushel baskets.
Among these are slungsliots, billies,
steel saws, knives and a steel hook

complete plan of the north wing and

found, but the warden declines to dis
close the nature of it.

Arretted for Embezzlement.
Denver, Colo., March 21. J. D.
Mordaunt was arrested yesterday on
a telegram from inspector Ross of
Chicago. Mordaunt is under indict
ment for embezzlement. The arrest is
a most important one, as the sum
named is $53,000.
Mordaunt is a young man, 23 years
of age, with a boyish face. In Chicago
he was employed as confidential book
keeper by Smith & Webster, a big
plumbing supply company. He stood
high in the estimation of his employers
and great was their surprise when he
failed to appear at his accustomed
desk on the morning of February 24.
An examination or his books re
vealed a shortage of nearly $25,000 and
small amounts received by Mordaunt
during the past year were unaccounted
for. Mordaunt says he is innocent of
the charge against him. He will be
taken to Chicago. No money was
The arrest of another Chicago crlmi
nal has been made here. His name is
Richard Sims alias Georgo Randolph,
alias Colonel McDonald, a bunco
steerer. The arrest was made at the
instance of Inspector Ross, who stated
that Sims was under indictment for
conspiracy and swindliag. Sims has
attempted to bunco several citizens os
Denver by trying to get them to pay
$2,000 for an alleged system of his to
beat the game of faro. He la thought

In Hi favor.
New York, March 22. There was a
framatic scene in the court of general
sessions when Carlyle W. Parris, the
foung medical student, was called to
the bar to receive sentence of death for
poisoning his secretly wedded wife,
Helen May Potts. Public sympathy
aas been aroused to an unusual degree
in behalf of the young man, and it
went to the extent of holding amass
meeting in his behalf in Madison
Square garden, but all without avail to
stay the action of the law. An im
mense throng of people was around the
ouilding in which Recorder Smyth sat.
Admission was forbidden to all except
those bearing cards from the district
attorney, but in spite of this the court
room was crowded before the time for
sentence to be passe 1. Harris was fin

evidences of extreme weakness. Asked

to those immediately at his elbow. Af
ter one or two unintentional interrup

Ihe words of the doomed man were still
inaudible, except once in a while, when
lie reached some point in the case
which moved him strongly, when he
would utter a sentence or two with
startling strength and distinctness and
then gave way to evident weakness
and talked in an undertone.
At the close the recorder sentenced
him to be electrocuted in the week be
ginning May 8.
There were wet eyes in the court
room at times during Harris' speech
and nameless sounds of throngs deeply
moved. Among tha most dramatic
points in the speech were where he de
nounced Dilworth Choate, the news
paper man, as a sneak, prejurer, out
cast and ti e district attorney's tool;
where he denounced Assistant District
Attorney W'ellman as a liar, and
where, with tears streaming from his
eyes and sobs convulsing his frame, he
turned to thank his counsel, Lawyer
Howe, sayed lie was a poor man and
could never repay his devotion. He
ended by handing him an envelope
which, he said, contained his dearest
possession -Helen's last gift to him.
Harris spoke for an hour and forty
minutes. lie made no sign as the re
corder hurriedly pronounced the date
for the execution. At the close of the
scene he was taken back to the' Tombs.
The envelope which he handed his
lawyer contained a pair of cuff buttons.
A great throng ran after Harris as he
walked from the general session to the
Tombs. A remarkable feature was the
applause that was given him. When
he reached the Tombs there was a big
crowd awaiting him. "Three cheers
and a tiger for Harris," cried some one.
They were given and Harris, still hand
cuffed, walked inside with a smile on
Later he said: "Well, it's all over
now, but I :im ready to die, although I
declare solemnly that I am an innocent
man. I feel like a man who has done
a good day's work and is tired. Iam
surprised at the way I held out, tor I
was very sick. I am very happy now,
for I have proved my case."
Mr. Howe said that in accordance
with the special request of Harris no
mass meeting would be held in his be
half. His lawyers believe that the de
monstration indicates a general public
sentiment in favor of giving Harris
another chance, and are confident that
the governor will be successful in
averting the execution of the sertence
Tlie Behrnr 8a Arbitration.
London, March 22. In the House I
of Commons Mr. T. Gibson Bowels,
conservative, called attention to the
subject of the Behriog sea arbitration
and urged that it involved the ques
tion of the freedom of the high seas
and ought not to be submitted to ar
bitration. England, he continued,
never succeeded under arbitration, be
cause England had not a single friend
among European powers. In view of
the decision in the Alabama contro
versy, and the San Juan and
Delagoa bay disputes, no satisfactory
result could be expected from Ben ring
sea arbitration. There were advanta
ges in war was as leading usually to
lasting settlement, and war usually
left sentiments of mutual respect be
tween the combatants. If the country
was unable to protect the high seas and
had to coerce a great colony on such a
matter, all the dispatches the foreign
office could issue would not hide the
fact that the greatness of England had
Sir. Edward Gray, parlimentary
nnder secretary for the foreign office,
replied that the remarks of the hon
orable members were singularly
Inopportune, seeing that the arbitration
relating to Uehring sea was now pro
ceeding. Sir Edward deprecated further
discission. "Hear, Hear."

A Fire Horror.
Cleveland, March 25. A fire
horror unprecedented in the history
of Cleveland occured shortly afternoon
yesterday when lour women and one
child were burned to death in a fashion

flames in the hall on the second floor.

Mrs. Miller jumped from a sceond

the alarm. The lire spread rapidly
through the halls and . hundieds of
neople congregated and attempted to
rescue those who were in the building.

New York, March 24. The jcial
iommittee of the reform club of this
city has completed a draft of a bill
which, when perfected, will be urged
upon congress as a substitute for the
present tariff la ws, and as a f ulfillment
of the pledges under which the demo
cracy obtained control ol the national
government. The general principles
upon which a proper tariff should be
formed in main are as follows:
Crude material in general made free
of duty. In taxing otlier articles the
general object has been to fix such rates
as would produce the largest amount
of revenue in a series of years, consist
ent with large importations. The pur
pose of obtaining the largest revenue,
ho sever, is limited lya consideration
of the welfare and necessities ot tho
people at large and especially the
All duties are made strictly
ad valorem, except some of those which
are levied as compensatory lor internal
revenue taxes upon similar articles pro
duced at home. In order to insure a
perfect administration of an ad valorem
tariff it is essential that rates of duty
upon the great mass of articles should
be kept at very moderate figures. Up
on other articles experience has shown
that duties cannot be raised above 25
per cent without incurring dangerous
incentives to fraud. A few articles ol
luxury may be excepted from the oper
ations of these general rules.
LIQUOUS AND TOBACCO.
Foreign articles which, if made sub
ject to lowdut, must of course be
subject to at least an equal tax. As to
liquors and tobacco, duties upon them I
should be made with a view of obtain
ing the greatest possible amount of rev
enue without any concern as to
whether we give or withhold protection
to the domestic producer.
Yielding in part to popular opinion
on the silk luxury we placed silk man
ufactures generally at 20 per cent. .Silk
yarns, thread and sewing silk wen
placed at 20 per cent, and spun ant
thrown silk at 15 per cent, leaving raw
Bill forms of cruds metal, not merely
ores, but pig iron, ingots and bars, witli
the exception of iron and steel, are
made free of duty. The duty upon
woollens and worsted manufactures ol
every description are placed at 25 pel
cent Leather gloves and all othei
gloves except silk are placed at a 2i
per cent schedule.
TAX UI'ON tin plates.
Tin Dlate should not be taxed mort
than 20 per cent, and perhaps not more
than 15 per cent. Manufacturers o'
wood In the most finished forms an
placed in tho 20 per cent schedule, as
also buttons, except metal or glass
Most provisions made free of duty, bu'
some which partatce in a mild degret
of the nature of luxuries are put in th
20 per cent schedule, while breadstuff;
are mostly mada free. Potatoes lefl
si bject to a duty of 15 per cent.
Domestic bo ks could not be admit
ted without ne consent of domestii
publishers, and foreign books copy
righted here could not be admitted ai
all. On the other hand, so long ai
paper, binding materials, and machin
ery are taxed, it is not just to makt
competing books free. Demand foi
revenue may turn the scale and 10 pel
cent will probably be the revenue duty
NO SPECIFIC FKEK LIST.
Tt would be desirable to have nc
specific free list, but make everything
free which is not made expressly
subject to duty. All articles upoi
which the revenue collected is to;
small to pay for collection, and upot
wl ich it is not probable any more re
du ion of rates would produce i
substantial revenue, are placed on the
We are satisfied the proposed tar if)
would produce an immediate revenut
of $120,000,000, if not more. If tb
existing duty of half a cent a pound
on refined sugar should be retained
it is suggested that a specific duty ol
seven-sixteenths cent per pound might
be imposed on raw sugar, which would
produce an additional revenue ol
probably (15,000,000, besides reducing
the bounty by $2,000,000. To this,
however, one of us is entirely opposed,
and three express no opinion. Th
amount of revenue which would b
produced by a duty so large bas mad
a full discussion of the piopriety ol
the tax necessary.
