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. " THE GAZETTE SHOWS FIGHT. WALES AND OTIIEK I'RINCES Of 11LOOD TO DE WITNI3SKS , " " 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 order. 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 , GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS , WHAT 01' A GORDON MONUMENT ? 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. A PAH13IAN TRAOEDV , 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 THE PU&GUB OP WIVES. ! THE MABTYH3 OF POLTOAJIV AND THBIB METHODS. BpscialTelegram to The BEE. 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.
