Special Telegram to The BEE ,
NEW YORK , July 9. The Sun's cablegram
from London rays : The Pall Mall Gazette
sensation continues , and the third Installment
of Its exposures w as put forth yesterday ,
This , In some respects , is moro repulsive than
y that prooeded it , tvo pages are Jovotod
to its details. Every caea is so clearly de
scribed that the guilty parties coutdba located
within twenty-four hcurs by a detective -
toctive ot _ most ordinary _ Intelligence.
Every possible clua is given except
the names of the principals. Accompanying
is an editorial article , short but more aggres
sive than any that hava been printed slnco
the exposures were begun , The editor not
only defies , but invites prosecution ; but ho
warns Intending prosecutors that many
names of necessity will bo revealed during
the trial if any caios are brought against
him. Some men , he says , will be spared
until the last on ncsouut of their honest
ivivoa and worthy sons nnd daughters , of
whom they ara unworthy fathers. If such
men choose to load tha attack they will , It
says , bo sheltered behind woman whom they
know they are unworthy to touch.
The only persons who thus far como within
the clutches of the law on account of this sen
sation are a few news boys. The cumbrous
machinery of the homo office for the suppres
sion of newspapers canoot ba lightly pet in
operation , but any Inspactor can order tha
arrest ot any persons selling what he deems
to bo obscene publications. Honca it happens
that while the Pall MnU Gazett's praises are
running night and day and papers are being
told by tha truck load for circulation
throughout the three kingdoms , ten
uows venders have been arrested on
the charge of telling indecent prints. The
prisoners wore taken before Lord Mayor
JTowler and promptly released or remanded
under nominal bail. The lord may or ex pressed
tha opinion that the editor of tha Gazette was
actuated by the highest motives. Jlosajs
that If a crime has boon committed In point
ing out a nest of crimes , the publishers should
first ba dealt with , after which it would be
time enough to prosecute the men and boys
who bought and sold tha paper in the ordi
nary course of trade ,
The office of the Gazitte is in a state of
siege. A shrieking mob has possession of the
sidewalks. News vendors , regular and irreg
ular , are pressing forward to buy copies of the
paper at a shilling apiece. Eight policemen
are on duty forming purchasers Into line.
They are admitted at ono entrance , where
tickets for the papers are bought , and. as soon
as they receive the papers called
for by their tickets they go out
by another door and begin to sell
papers at almost any price they chose to ask.
The sale of the papers at tbo office is not only
tolerated , but regulated and facilitated by the
police , but as soon as the vender begins to sell
his wares on the street ho is liable to arrest.
In tbo editorial room of the paper every
body ts apparently serene. Letters have
boon received from Rev. Spurgeou and hun
dreds of other clergymen , statesmen and
merchants , thanking the editor for the expos
ures already made and exhorting him
to keep on with the good work and promis
ing their support In any way it can be made
effective. At the club the principal occupa
tion la fitting the names of the accused persin
to the description of them In the Gazetto. In
many cases the descriptions are so acurate
that nothing is left to conjecture. In other
cases there is a good deal of guess work. The
names of the members of tha royal family and
of the highest nobility are freely bandied
about. Many aristocrats are howling with
rage and their anger is intensified by ita Im
potence. If they deny the truth of any in
dividual case , they are mot with the awkward
question. "How do you know ! " In the re
form club it has been proposed to expel Mr ,
v Thompson , owner of the Gazette , for allow
ing the exposures to bo made In his paper.
THE rnroopa ARE KEADV.
LONDON , July 9 The Gazette in'editorial
this morning defies the authorities to prose
cute them and declare they am prove all that
has been published. Continuing It says , "We
can summons witness from the dean of
Canterbury and prince of Wales down
to Dr. Jrlfrles , ; wo will put our chief inform
ant nnd his assistant in the witness box. " In
concluiion it says : "Let those who da not
wish to shako the very foundation of social
order think twice before compelling us to con
front in court the brothel keepers with princes
of the blood and prominent public men with
the victims of their lawless vice. "
" "
LONDON , July 9 , The crown lawyers are
considering tbo advisability of prosecuting
the publishers of the Gazette , and their
decision is awaited with anxiety , Two news
boys wore arrested and fined this afternoon
for creating a disturbance by demanding
twenty-five cents per copy for to-day'a issue of
the paper , A number of other venders ,
arrested on similar charges , were remanded
for trial. The Right lion , George A. Ben-
tinck , conservative member of parliament for
Whltehaven and formerly judge advocate
general , publishes a letter in to-day'a St.
James Guzatto denouncing the conduct of the
editors of tha P ll Mall Gaz tte. Bentinck
alleged tbat Stead , chief editor of the Pall
Mall Gazette , on the Hli of Juno requested
an interview with him on the tubjoct
of the criminal law amendment bill.
"I received him received , " continued Mr ,
Bentinck "at my house and answered all his
Inquiries on ondltion tbat the information I
g ve him should be considered as absolutely
confidential. Mr , Stead accepted this condi
tion without reserve , but last night ho vie
lated his promise by Lubliihing a private let t-
ter on the subject which I lent him. "
In furth r detente of its course tha Pall
Mall Gazette this afternoon publishes a num i-
ber of letters written In commendation by
peers , blshopi and members of the haute ?
commons , omitting the names. In addition <
the Gazette publishes approving letters from
the Key. Dr , Lawrence , professor In ths uni
versity of Cambridpo , and from n number of
other distinguished clergymen of all
denominations and ladies , It alia reproduces
articles favorable to its cause from religious
newspapers ths Western Mercury and the
Belfast News together with letter j ol protest
from Mr , John Hrlnton , liberal , member of
parliament , for Kidderminster and other per
sons of prominence. This afternoon it pub
lishes au editorial thanking the city authori : i-
ties for > ttemptlngto suppress the sale * of the
paper , thereby breaking the conspiracy of dhe
lence maintained by the press coccernlog the
Gazettes revelations.
"Polloo seizures of newfptpen are common
In Vienna , " continues the Gazette 'but such
high handed outrages on the freedom of the
press iliould have been impossible in London ,
Instead of waging war against the street boy *
let tha authorities take tction against tha re
epauslble parties , in thli business. If rewe
have published anything obicenp , let em
protecute ur. We deny that anything its
been publlibed by ui deiertincc cenaure , nd
\ve declare the authoiltlei are cowardi , or
worse , If ILoy fail to proceed against us alter
having charged in open court that the Pall
MaU Gazette was an obs ene publication ,
* We reluctantly adopt this mode
of publicity In order to aro01 o men to A just
sensa of the horrors existing all around , Nnw
the moro publicity ; wo are prepared to prove
our statements. "
The editorial In the GazetU this afternoon ,
In which the pap r warns the authorities that
th y are prepared Jto _ prove everything they
have said that the Princs of Wales nndother (
princes of the blood will bs uimmoned as
their witnesses creates even moro of a sen
nation than the revelation * heretofore pub
lished. The clubs are fairly astounded at the
editor's audiclty , and the Prince of Wales Is
threatened with another ugly exposure of hla
private pleasures ,
Northumberland street , where the Pal
Gazette office ii located , has been packed
with masses of people all the afternoon. Atone
ono time the pressure of tbo crowd was so
ureat that all the lower windows of tha Ga *
zotto building were pushed in. When the
doors of the publication oilico opened for the
sale of the first edition there was a tremen
deus rush for papers during which women and
boys were knocked down and trodden upon ,
and In many cases injured. The paper makes
no new revelations to-day but promises an
installment of revelations to-morrow.
Albert H. Groy , liberal member fnr South
Northumberland , complained tbat public ac
cess to the oilico of the PA ! ! Mall Gazette wns
obstructed. Sir Illchard Gees , homo cecre-
taty , replied that it was the duty of the po
lice to keep the streets clear and preserve
The chiefdirector of the Pall Mall Ga
zette's secret Inquiry commission , through
which the revelations woio obtained , writes
concerning tbo whole matter us follows : ' Tbo
Investigation wai begun on May 21th nnd the
work was unremitting to date. The commie-
sion had valuable assistance from the salva
tion army , from the London committee for
suppression ot traffic in KuglUh girls and from
the vast experience of Mr ? , Josephine Butler.
Tha commission was composed of members
of the Gazette staff * and acted independently
cf the police. The homo olBco deprecated on
official grounds allowing journalist ) to inter
view the police. The commission anplied to
the Archbishop Canterbury , Iho bishop of
London , and Cardinal Manning for advice
and thes" great authorities on morals while
deprecating the risk involved in the com
mission' * task all supported its
object. Keady help was accorded
to the commission from the Catholic and Con
gregational clergyman ; also from the Miners'
Joint Protection committeojthe White Ribbon
army ; the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty .to Children ; the London'City mis
sion ; the Reformatory Refuge , union ) the Res-
cua society ; the Pimllco Ladles' association ,
and the Moral Reform union.
"Tho commission vi Ited all the hospitals ,
homes , nnd refuges whcro harbor is given un
fortunates. The inmates readily eave all the
Information In their possession. The moat of
the revelations , however , was obtained through
interviewers. Everybody , high and low ,
likely to have the information desired by the
commission , from Lord Dalhouse to Mrs.
Jeffiies , was subjected to an interview by some
member of the commission. Mrs , Jeffries sent
a flood of lighten the whole transaction. The
lord mayor said ho thought it would best to
await the decision of the government , which
had before it the consideration of the same
ca e. '
The proprietors of the Pall Mall Gtzetto
to-day asked Sir Richard llossholm , secretary ,
for protection against the crowds surrounding
their publication office. The entire cost of the
investigation amounted to $1,500 , , Thirteen
newspaper vendors , who had been arrested
for selling copies of the Pall Mall Gazette ,
wote arraigned before the lord mayor today ,
ha city colicltor In presenting the case
against the prisoners charged them with pub
licly selling obscene literature and said bo had
marked for the court's perusal , passages In the
Gazette's article npon which the charge was
baied. Ho must , he said , decline to read
the passages in open court , and said
he thought that a repetition of those object
ionable statements with little alteration dally
indicated no good object. Tha solicitor then
stated that ha would require further time to
consider what charges to formulate against
tbo prisoners ,
LONDON , July 9. Ibe lord mayor gave no
tice in the house of commons this afternoon of
his intention to ask the government if they
intended to erect a monument to Gen. Gor
don in Trafalgar square.
PATHS , July 9. Paris is excited this even'
Ing over a horrible boulevard tragedy just ro ]
ported by the police. The architect Coudray ,
although married and having children , main
tained a llason with Mma Besiier. wife of a
shop-keeper on the Boulevard Voltaire , and
who had an amiable huiband and dutiful
daughters. The lovers quarrelled , and to
day , during , the shop-keeper's absence from
his business place , Coudray called npon Mme
liessior and with a pistol snot her dead. _ He
then ended bis own" " by putting a bullet
through his heart. M , Bossier soon afterward
returned to his shop and stumbled over the
dead. Ho had never believed the stories he
hid hoard of bis wife's infidelity , and the
revelation came upon him so suddenly that
his tnlnd broke down nnd ha fled from tbo
scone , a raving maniac , yelling bjs shame up
and down the Boulevard Voltaire. When
tbo policemen overpowered him ho made them
understand , and the corpses were taken away
from the shop. No living being knows wb :
tha suicide killed bis miatro's. It is thought
that M. Bossier will never recover his sanity

BOSTON , July 9. 0. C. Goodwin , editor ol I
the Salt Lake Tribune , who has been in this
city a few days , says that the demonstration
of the Fourth of July In Salt Lake City was
the exhibition of pure cussednesa designed 1
and perpetrated by Mormon loaders who saw
in it the means of emphasizing tha idea which
ii sedulously cultivated by them , that the
"saints'1 are martyrs , A schism ID
the church by which the polygamists will be
put in the minority is probable. This disinte
gration will accomplish what the enactment t
and enforcement of the law can now do only
Imperfectly , But the Mormon leaders hope
that before this happens by the apparent
abandonment of polygamy their territory will
become a sta to , and by ; their Independent leg-
islatura polygamy will ba made . The
only way to deal effectively with the Mormons
Is by a commtision which should take
tbo place of this present territorial leglsla-
ture. and in whose composition tha Mormons
tshall have no voice , The Mormons are held
in the east in favorable estimation , because
they buy goods annually worth § 11,000,00) or
more , and they are scrupulously careful to pay
their bills. Another reason is that on the
railroad * in tha territory no taxes are levied.
Thus Mormon * itand in the position of bene
actors to powerful corporations.

CHICAGO , III. , July 9. The wheat market
WAS in an unsettled and nervous condition the

statements and rumors. The opening was
strong , prices advancing l@ie under free
buying , based largely upin reported dntnigo
to the crops In the west by last night's storm
and rain , The market turned abruptly on

receding S@jjc , but rnlllod Jo on n fair do

southern Franco cnusod another wave of
weakness , and tnices fell elf to the inside
range , fluctuated eomo later , nnd closed on the
regular board Jo under yesterday. Tlioro was
a further decline of Jo on the afternoon bo.\rd ,
duo largely to tbo cholera scare , The re
ceipts hero were only moderate , and show a
Fallingoff at all primary points , Wheat afloat ,
bound for the united kingdom and continent ,
showed a decrease of 1,320,030 bushels during
the east week.
The feeling developed In corn was weaker
and prices averaged lower , Tim receipts woio
small with larger arrivals estimated for to
morrow , which tended to weaken thi market ,
Prices declined id and closed | c under

The receipts continue to increase and had
there been an average supply of Texans on
the market the number would have reached

eighteen care of stillers and glucose stock and
thirty-five cars of Texans. Trade was only
fairly active and prices on the ordinary run of
fat cattle were again a strong lOo lorfer. and
they are now down to near where they were
a week ago. The advance of Tuesday has
been nearly wiped out of fair to good beeves
and grassy stock , A few loads of choice and
fully matured natives averaging along about
1,600 pounds sold at S5.S74 to SG 10 ,
but the great bulk of fat cattloof 1,000 to
1,250 pounds and thereabouts were selling at
95 40@5 70. Nlco handy steers , such as are
at all times favorites , sold , proportionately
higher than heavier weights. First-claw naM
tive butchers' stock continues to sell at good
prices , but low grades , such as have to com
pute with cheap Texans , continue to toll ex
tremely low. There Is more life in the stocker
and feeder trade , yet the general market re

from Texas to the Pan Handle of Texas and
Colorado have been forcibly stopped and pre
vented from pasilng over the .common trail
for such cattle through the Indian country ,
Cherokee strip and "No Mans Land" and are
now stopped tliera by an armed band in the
pay of a rival cattle interest. Th'se cattle

speedy delivery in Colorado and the Pan
Handle and the contracts for which are now
expiring or have expired. All these cattle are
sound and healthy and from a healthy dis
trict , clean of disease. To further aid In stop-
these cattle , criminal proceedings have

cattle north with a full knowledge of the re
quirements of the quarantine regulations of

of the state of Colorado , the only state or ter
ritory having a quarantine regulation In
which we proposed entering , and we were
careful to govern oura lves so that wo would
not violate the laws of ( hat state. The oppo

progress of all these herds , law or no law , and |
by force , Other herds from four hundred
miles farther south from Texas had previously
passed over the same trail without any com-
inunicatin ? disease and theie herds are of the

tricts which had been coining over the trail j
for years and about which no complaint had
been heretofore made.

instructions to thecommandingofQcerdirectlng
him to disarm ths Indians. It was sent by
Lieutenant-General Sheridan. The Cheyenne
Indians are armed with the best make of

ammunition , For some time they have an
ticipated an attempt of the army to take their
arms from them and have In some instances
hidden them. If the troops undertake to dis
arm them it ii thought by officials hero who
have dealt with the Cheyennes that they
will resist until overpowered. There are between -
tween 1,20 ! ) and 1,000 fighting Indians among
them , It was said hero to-day that Gen.
Augur favored disarming these Indians , but
