' m' ? ! :
f' 7neIJ-ODklyn Bogle last even-
.ngpuoiishea the follow-inz statement ,
made by Hon. Winchester Britton ,
Mrs. Sprague'a counsel , which will
ihrowsome new light upon the shotgun -
gun Interview which was eaid to have
taken place between Senator Conk-
ling and Governor Sprcgue :
Reporter Do you mean'that Mr.
u ? astatementa are correct as to
the celebrated Oanonchet affair ?
Mr. Britton Most certainly. The
sensational statements made through
the pre . are
wholly without founda
tion , and 1 had occasion , profession-
yy , to inquire into all the particulars
of thit nfl ir , and the whole story
published hed not oven a basis of
of trYith.
RYou do not mcin to say that
Senator Conlling was not there , and
that he was not driven away bv Gov
ernor Spragdu ?
Mr. B. Senator Conklmg was
° . and he left there , and that is
all there is of the published atate-
mente that U corroi-t. 1 mean to say
that there was no collision whatever ,
verbally oractunlly , botwasn lha sen
ator and the governor. The governor
fell into ODO of his charActeri < tic
frenzy Ms , &nd quarreled with Mrs.
fapwjae and a music tcscher about
'jo children's music Ifsson , and Sju-
ator Conklinit , vrho wa thora on the
governor's invitation , with stversl
other gueels , withdrew.
RHO T about the * hnt "in ]
Mr. B. Shot gnu ? Nonsense.
There no shot gun on the prem
R- How do yon suppose thi story
wascirciilatcd ?
Mr. B. By ths governor. He
strives to be a hero iu the newspapers.
He is struck through with a lore of
notoriety , and since thpn ho has per
sistently endeavored publicly to as
perse Sirs. Sprague whenever he could
manufacture an opportunity. I have
never been to Providonca that I have
not discovered evidence cf it. But
thia one-sided business
13 now at an
nnd. Heretofore she has had no
chance to speak , but now there will be
an opportunity to understand her side
of the case.
Cp Btated that tbo trial
would t- e place in February It wis
"suggested at first by the trlends of
both to tile a petition , charging only
neglect to stjpport.the governor agree
ing not to oppose , but it was of no
nVail. _ Mr. Sprague coull not toler
ate his conduce any longer , and a
record of his matrimonial enormities
was made and presented to tLo court.
Hnw she has borne with him so long
as she has is to mo n surprise , but she
is very much attached to her little
j rsand ] has endured much for them.

Remarkable Increase In the Use of
Albany Eromng Journal.
A qtmrter of a century ago the use
of I'piutn in Albany was meagre as
compared with today. Taera were
atth ttime but about 350 pounds of
opium and 375 ounces of morphia sold
daring a year. Thou the population
was about 57,000 and the consump *
kion of opium about forty-three grains
per annum to every ii.lubitant , while
the rate of morphine was less than
three graina year to each person.
To-day , with the census showing our
city to contain more than 01,000 , the
annual Consumption of opium haa
crept uo to U500 pounds , and mor
phia to 5500 ounces. Thia large in
crease in ilia consumption of three
drugs cannot entirely be charged to
the growth of the city. Since 1855
the increase in the city's population
ai > been .50 , while the increase of the
Bale of opium during that time haa
been 900 percent. , andmorp'iia 1,100
per cent. , making a total i f these two
drugs of 2,0-0 per cent , iu a quarter
of a century , or 206 grains of opium
and 24 grams of morphine to every
inhabitant. Besides the vast quantity
of these drugs , between 400,000 and
500,000 morphia pills are sold
throughout the city in a year. Those
pills contain from one-tenth to one-
quitter of a grain of morphine
aoieco. Taking on an estimate 450-
000 pills aa the average annual con-
aumptkn , averaging , aay , one-sixth
of a grain apiece , would make the
morphine in them weigh 170 ounces.
Opium pills also have a large sale , but
not half so many are sold aa of the
It is estimated by men up in the
business that there nro GOO times aa
many rnorpHne pills sold aa any
other kind.
Uf thd ofJOO pounds of opium dia-
pcaed uf io this city annually , carefnl
inquiry made by a Journal reporter
reveals tha fact that fully one quarter
is consumed by people in its native
a'ata. The
remaining three-quarters
are used in making the different opi
ates , -he largest proportion being used
the preparation of laudanum. One
druggist stitos that where twenty-fiva
year * ago he made it by the gallon , he
noTT prepares it by the barrel. A
quarter of a century ago an opium-
eater was a rarity ; to-day the number
is large and on the increase. Fully
four-fifths of the opium-eaters are
women. These eaters eventually ex
hibit nervousness. The skin becomes
shriveled and the complexion assumes
a saffron hue. At times the eater has
cold sweats and nauseo , besides num
erous other kindred ills.

"Or South county. The most intense
interest in the conduct of these triula
prevails here and indeed through the
whole kingdom. Very few psople
have any confidence in a conviction ,
holding Kini to the theory of a dis
agreement of the jury. It i * freely
3'atfd in land league circles that
members t > t me present pnei ore ou
rigidly "Boycotted" that they are not
in a position to answer to their
names. 'fbS line of defense
which has been sketched by
Mr. Michael Davltt , who , more
than any other man , is authorized to
speak for the league , ia to deny the
league's responsibility for the recent
flgr riin outrages and to fortify their
denial by q'lo.tinij press statements ,
and to show further that , notwith
standing the sufferings and distress
through which Ireland has passed ,
the percentage of attacks upon indi
viduals is unustully amill. Is is un
derstood that m case of the convic
tion of the traveraers , their offices in
the league will bo at once filled by
competent men already selected.
Soon after tha openin. ' of the court ,
Justice May ar03a iii hia place and
read an address , in which he said that
afttr the iimconcFption which had
arisen as to what he had said on the
occosion ho WAS of the opinion that the
course of justice would be best served
if ho declined to take any part in the
trial. After the reading of the piper
Justice May left the court. This in-
cidentj which , theroia reason to sup-
pise , was not unexpected by his
colleagues , created a profound sensa
tion ainoiii ; the lawyers and specta
tors. For a moment there were
symptoms of applause on the part of
the friends of the traverses , bnt it
was promptly subdued by lh >
court. It is universally understoi d
that the misconception alluded to by
May , had reference to the interpreta
tion put npon a recent charga of
his to 'ho grand jury , in which
he took ground against the
League , and for which not only
members of the League , but many
leading liberals pablicly averred that
ho ought to be imprisoned for degra
dation and abuaeof his office. Hia
retirement gives great satisfaction to
the defense , who [ had anticipated a
stubborn and persistent influence
from him ia the prosecution by rulings
averse to their interests.
After the excitement and buzz of
conversation produced by this inci
dent had subsided , the jury panel was
cslle'J , and IS jurors answered to
their mines. Of these three were
excused on the ground of physical in
firmity. At this point the counsel for
tha traveraors claimed their right to
challenge six of the pinel. This pave
rise to an excited discussion , in wh ch
the attorney-general argued agiinst
the claim of the defense , and
intimated that if the latter
wera allowed challenges , they would
use them and tnus overthrow the pos
sibility of getting a j iry from the pre
sent panel. The court finally decided
the poin. . in f ivor of the defense , but
as the roll of jurors was continued
they only challenged two. The jury
was then sworn end the court ad
DDBLIN , December 29 1 a. m.
In the afternoon session of the lind
leaguers , the a'tonu-y general , in his
speech ft r the prosecution , maintain
ed that the tmversers w re guilty of
unuiistakeable conspiracy , and quoted
in ill utralion cf his remarks the
speeches of tha various traversera ,
dwfllin : ; more especially upon thrse
of Bnyton , Brennan , Dily and Par-
nell. Tne court room was filled as in
the morning , and crowds of people ,
who were unuble to obtain admission
tickets , gathered outside the court ,
commenting upon the scraps of infor-
ma'ion tht-y could get c ncerning the
proceedings. The police arrange-
menta to prevent disturbance are ex
cellent , and perfect order prevails. It
in expected that the attorney-general's
speech will not be concluded before
this evening. The trial excites but
indifferent attention in London , the
j public being more bent on enjoying
