risse and other Boulangist members ot the
Chamber of Deputies mot in tbe Place de
la Concorde before the statue of Strasburg
yesterday, intending to bold a meeting.
A crowd of several thousand persons
gathered and M Deroulede was about to
begin a speech when a police commhsury
named C emend forced his wav through
the crowd and approaching Deroule-ie
forbade him to sppafc. Derailed protest
ed, but the police official was obdurate.
Deroulede then began affixing floral
wreaths to the railing around the statue,
at the same tma leading tbe crowd in
shouts of "Vive Boulanger." Clemeuti
tried to arrest Deroulede, but the latter
stcutly resisted, saying th-t he had not
made a speech and bad only cheered for
Boulanccr. He refused to accompany the
officer to the police station.
Clementi thereupon seized him. but the
crowd came to Derouled's rescue and
took him away from tbe officer who was
being roughly bandied by tho mob, when
a large body of police suddenly appeared
upon the scene and charged the crowd,
driving tbem in all directions and rescu
ing the unfortunate commissary. A large
number of persons were arres.ed.
Laguerre and Deroulede during tho
scrimmagu jumped into a cab and were
driven to the office of La Presse, where a
mob gathered and indulged in noisy
demonstrations. The police cleared the
streets and made many more arrests.
Tbe incident has caused a sensation
throughout tho city and dangerous devel

London, July 15 The adherents of
Boulanger who came over from France to
take part with their chief in tho Loudon
celebration of the fall of tbe Bastile, fo.
the most part, express confidence in the
peaceful solutions of the problems which
the French people have before tbem. They
d-rido tbe speech of M. Brisson, in which
he declares that tbe people of France often
become incapable of protecting them
selves, instancing the feet that they once
allowed the Republic to be destioyed and
succumbed to the E npire. and in which
he concluded that the majority should de
fend the liberties of Frenchmen by force
Notwithstanding their disclaimer of
warlike intention, however, these Bou
langists do not pretend to deny that in tbe
event of their own success at the coming
elections they propose to remove Presi
dent Carnot from bis position at tbe head
of the French republic and th-t this will
bi done at the point of the bayonet if
necessary, unless he yields to ths
wishes of Boulanger and bows to the ex
pressed will of tbe people. It can be very
easily surmised that in view of these and
similar expressions on the part ot the
Boulangists and the eqnal y determined
tone of their enemies tbe outlook for Oc
tober is ominous. Bouianger's assertion
in his speech yesterdav that his aim was
to work for the strengthening of tbe Re
public is generally accepted as a ruse to
divert the threatened alliance between
the republicans and tbe supporters of tbe
Count de Paris, an alliance which if con
summated must prove a death blow to
bastile centennial observance.
Paris. July IS. The one hundredth an
niversary of the fall of the Bastile was
celebrated by tbe public meetings and
fetes in Paris and throughout the prov
inces yesterday. Transparencies bearing
representations of General Boulanger
were displayed in the windows of the
League of Patriots and other Boulangist
resorts. These devices called forth a few
boot:ngs from passers-by. but, with the
exception of the disorders in tbe Place de

London. July 15 M. Waddington. the
French Ambassador here, gave a banquet
last evening to prominent members of
the French colony. In a speech after tho
banquet be declared against Coulangism.
Ho asserted that the Boulangist pro
gramme had no pirallel in America,
because in America the Presi
dent was protected, not by uni
versal suffrage, but by delegates of tbe
State. Moreover, in America there was no
standing army and a coup d'etat was
therefore imposs h'e. Tbe triumph of
Boulanger would end in disaster for
France. He bim-elf did not believe that
Boulanger would succeed, but neverthe
less ho considered it nocessiry for his
countrymen to rally around President
Carnot in defense of tho Republic.

NASnviLLE, Tenn., July li Th ques
tion whether John L. Sullivan and
Charley Johnson could be Irg-illy held in
custody to await requisition p-ipers from
Mississippi was argued in tho circuit
court here yesterday afternoon. The de
fendants' petition for a writ of habeas
corpus was read, stating that they bad
been arrested on no process known to the
law and held without any charge against
them and without shadow of legal auihor
ity; that they had committed no offnuse
aga'ust tbe laws of Tenneueeand were
not sub j act to legal restraint. They had
committed no felony in this or any other
Tbe counsel discussed the matter at
length aad finally Judge McAllister ren
dered his decision. He was very em
phatic in bis opinion that to hold Sullivan
longer would be a most arbitrary act on
the part of tbe court; that the ctlicers had
arrested him without warrant or authority
of law; that misdemeanors were not ex
traditable by tbe rulings of Tennessee
courts and by precedents of Governor
Taylor. He therefore ordered Sullivan re
leased. Tnere was an immense crowd present
and tbe decision of the judge was greeted
with great applause. Sullivan was mado
a hero of and the town was his until be
left it at eight o'clock for i h East.
