The Ministers Dine.
LONDON , August 11 , 4 a. in. [ New York
Herald Cnblc to thn Ur.i : . ] Lord
Major Staples gave n gicat dinner last
nutuinn to the Salisbury ministry anil last
winter to the ( JliilMonn cabinet. Ho gave
another to thu new Salisbury ministry last
evening. Tills Is a luiuai liable retold fora
single ninyotnlty. These entertainments aio
occasions of importance , because at such din
ners the cabinet olllccrs make "stump'1
speeches without belnz bold olllclally ac
countable for \\bat they say. Vet what tboy
say often indicates their policy. The dinner
was given at the Mansion hnu e , one cor
ner of which mints the Utnk of En-
pland nnd tlio Koyal Kxchaiige , within
a stone's throw of the Herald building. Tlio
triangular space thcioabouts was lilled in tlio
early evening with crowds eager to see tlio
ministers pass In and cheer their favorites.
Inside was

under ekctilc lights , with flowcis In banks
everywhere. The lord major and the lady
mayoress received In municipal state in a
main drawing loom of palatial slzo , out of
which tlio guests cnteicd the dininc ball ,
known as the Egyptian hall , but now all that
once was 1'haiaolc has been decorated out.
This hall Is the si/o of the Fifth Avenue
hotel dining room , but with n dome of
gieat height , supported by twenty
tinted pillars. The hall is
ornamented with mammoth mirrors and
thirty niches containing fine statuaiy.
The guests , numbering 145 men and sixty-
four woman , when seated presented

"These arc tory guests , " said a municipal
vagwhosat in my vicinity , "but you % vlll
find tlio a liberal one. "
On the host's right sat the Marchioness of
Salisbury , tiio daughter of the late Baion
Alderbon , the gieat judge. Her face op
pressed her pride in her htibband , her hap
piness In his success. She woreapuiple
velvet costume , richly tiimmcd wltli lace
nnd quite burled under the Cecil family dia
monds1. Near by sat her daughter , Lady
Gwendoline Cecil , In company with the wife
of tlio liist lord of the ad-
mil ally. Not far off sat the
Coniitess of Dtiugarvan , pale and fiagile ,
and Lady Charles Beie&foid , ilvallug in her
healthful her hcio husband.
Other pilmioso dames , Mich as thu Countess
of Iddeslelgh , tlio Viscountess Cur/on. Mrs.

American public dinners , wheie ladies aie

missel , but then her llego lord was
ill and under home mlo at their P.uldlngtno
house. His place supplied at the festive
board by Lotd Itevvton , who is the shadow of
Bcaconsflcld and Is the beloved of poetesses.

rapidly under the expectancy of what Lord
Salisbiuy wouldsay. Even the toasts to the
queen , the prince , the army , tlio navy and

until the one touching the premier
could bo readied. In vain Loid

loving cup had been passed , while cmlously
enough thu band played the poison song
from "Lueretla Uoi la , " But the premier ,
putting poison aside , began with honeyed
words tor the lord mayor , while tlio lady
mayor blushed when the honey seemed to
betoken a speedy knightage.
Then the premier plcasnntlj'lilntcd that this
was doubly a jubilee jear. He found a jnbl-
leo In the fact that thu classes and masses
had pulled to e.lher to malnt.iin thu Impeilal
union. It was a jubilee , too , because true
legislators had conqueicd false agitators. Ho
icfoued to thu Afghan and Egyptian dlflicul-
tles still under solution. Ho complimented
Lord Itosebcrry , and salil the foreign policy
of England's being a peacemaker [ should
Hoio a bluff ml ml ml exclaimed to a neigh
bor , in u whisper loud enough to bo heard a
long way otr , "Hut lieland. " Then Lord
Salisbury , lowering his \olee , said , "Yes ; the
old skeleton Is still at all political feasts. The
( -nil events of the last few days demonstrate
that Ireland Is not a homogenous country.
Auto what Is to bo done , It Is impossible
to say now , more than the Hist duty of the
goveinmuut will bo to devote Its whole en
ergy to fice thu loj ol people of Ireland from
illegal constraints and restraints. Every
remedy must be exhausted to allow the Irish
people to earn their own bread unmolested.
The advantage- this government Is that wo
represent the mandate of the people against
separation. The people have Irrevocably
eo decided. Their motto is 'Social Older in
Ireland , ' To maintain that is our primary
duty. I cannot now glvo details of the meth
ods we shall juiisuu nor of the nicasuieswo
bhall enact in fulfilling this duty. Wo shall lind
ourbolld substance in the lopro'entatlvcs
which \our \ London , myloid major , and its
eubuibs lui\o sent to paillament. "
These expiesslons I wrote down as they
were delivered. The premier's manner was
decided , though polished , and not only those
in uniforms and brilliant toilets , who foigot
their fashionable trlgldlly and pounded on
the tables and gave almost frantic applause
when Loid Salisbury resumed his scat ,
Bcemcd to understand ids words as betokening

I went afterward to the "ship , " told me over

The Police Succeed In Keeping Peace
for n Day.
Hnt.FAST , August 11. fNevv York Herald
Cable Special to the Br.r.- ] Belfast has been
perfectly orderly to-d.iy. Several funerals
have taken place lo day , among them that of
Kobcit Str.iun , an iilsli-American , who was
shot on the eve oi his Intended return to the
United States. The colleges cros-ed the de
batable ciound between the catholic Falls
load nnd tlio protestantSliank Hill load , thus
offering a great temptation for n renewal
of the disturbances , but no breach of the
peace oecuncd. The "Island" men have re-
tured to work as usual. A compact mass was
prepared to light Its way through the catholic
quarters on North street , Peters Hill , to their
homes on Shank Hill load , but double cordons
ot troops keep the prolestants and catholics
too far apaitto allow of stone throwing.
The cavalry also paraded up and down
Peter's Hill , continually forcing the crowd of
laboicrs to scatter or pass on.

opened , it ml has never been tenanted
since it was vacated by the wounded

Arthur had a horror of the place , nnd that
the present occupant of the white house
is equally loth to break the sombre si
lence of the apartment. This course
is natural , but it is scarcely wiso. Gen
eral Garliohl did not die in the room , so
theio is scurooly eron n ghostly presence

much space in the vyhitu bouse , nnd no

That Speck of War.
WASHINGTON , Aueust 11. [ Special Tele-
cram to the Bni.I Secretary Uajard Is
repoited very much worked no over the Cut
ting alTalr. That Incident has taken a much
tnoro serious aspect than ho contemplated.
When in violation of thostatules ho peremp
torily demanded the release before
asking the Mexican authorities the
reason for Cutting's arrest , as ho Is
dhcctcd to do by law before rcsortlne : to de
mands for release , he has now taken the
step which he should have done on the first
Instance. Hu has asucd the authoiltlcs of
Mexico why they did not release Cutting.
Of course he knows well enough the reasons
which actuate the greaseis , but diplomacy
demands that formal olllclal reply shall
be made. Meantime all a\.iilablo war ma
terial Is being massed on the bonier. Artil
lery and ammunition in pi eat quantities aio
said to ha\e been hastily shipped fiomail -
ous parts of the country and the United
States is as well prenaicd to force compliance
with the iclterated demand for Cutting's iu-
lease when it shall bo made , if Secretary uav-
ard dech'CH that a second demand is neces
sary. ' 1 hat actual warbetweon the two na
tions is imminent , no one hem believes for a
moment , but an outbreak of a local character
between the lough chaiacters of the two
sides of the balder is expected.
Close an n Clam.
WASHINGTON , August --Special [ Tele
gram to the BKK.1 Tlio secretary of state Is
chagrined over the publications In the news
papers about the Cutting affair , There is
only one answer now gi\en byeverjono
connected with the department and that is
there is "no news. " That means simply
that them Is no news that will bo given to
the public. The fact Is there is a great deal
being received and sent every day. All cor-
icspoudoncc with Minister Jackson Is being
conducted In cipher. The key to tills cipher
is kept a profound secret and is changed fre
quently. The cipher is susceptible of more
than one hundred thousand variations and is
not likely to bo discovered by the public at
large. The last dispatch of Importance
sent to Minister Jackson Instructed
him to make a demand on the Mexican
goveinmciit that the governor of Chihuahua
beoidered to release Cuttliu. An official
who ought to know what Is coins forwaid
said to day that the follow lug would piobabiy
be the outcome ot the whole mattci : "Alter
Uniforms of tiial ha\c been gone through
with , and Cuttinir has been iotmally dis
posed of by the Chihuahua autlioiities. Presi
dent Diaz will paidon him as hu has a per
fect rluht to do under the Mexic.m constitu
tion. When Cutting is at llbeity then will be
tlio proper time to consider tliu methods
have been pursued toward him. The Mexi
can autlioiities have followed tlio course of
law they claim , \\lillo we claim they have not.
With Cutting at libertv the whole matter 13 a
piopor subject for arbitiation. It is absurd
to suppose that tlieio will bo war over so
trivial an affair and so cheap an adventuier. "
Germany's Position.
WASHINGTON , August 11. [ Special Tele
gram to the BEI.J Speaking of the rumor
that the German government was backing
the Mexican government in opposition to the
demand of Secretary Bayard in the Cutting
atluir , a high olllclal of the state department
to-day said that veislon of tlio matter Was
absurd , It was true the German government
was taking a jrreat interest In Mexican af
fairs , but only with a view to extend Its com
merce theio. Otheiwlso the German govern
ment was well awaio of the fact that no
quaircl between the United States and Mexico
ice could bo settled by outside interference.
The Geiman government has always lecog-
nlzcdaud w ill hereafter lecogime the Monioo
doctrine , and while it may follow German
coloul/ailon In Mexico , that government is
too intelligent to believe those colonies can
overbeeomu subject to its contiol or form a
pait of the Geiman empire. German coloniz
ation in Mexico can have no other object than
to extend German commeico in that conntiy.
Germany knows very well the United States
will never submit to a French piotectoiato
over the Isthmus , ami to prevent that Gci-
many has only to side with the United States
against It and uphold the Mortice doctrine.
El Paso Is Not Afraid. .
EL PASO , Tex. , August 11. | Special Tele
gram to the Bni : . ] The tmpicsslon Is gaining
ground In El Paso that the Cutting case will
bo a subject for diplomatic coriospoudence
for some months to como , and that mean
while the prisoner will not bo. released. A
peed deal has been said duung the last few
days about tlio defenceless condition of El
Paso In case of a sudden attack by the Mexi
cans , but there Is really no cause for alarm.
There aie a few hundred Mexican soldiers in
Paso del Norte , but they seem sullen ,
dissatisfied , and ready to desert at
the fust chance. On the other hand
Y.\ \ Paso contains some splendid lighting ma
terial and could raise in an cmoigcncy 1,000
armed men , who would hold their -place
against any toico the Mexicans might bilng
against it until help could arrive by railroads ,
but these will probably all bo idle specula
tions as the wholu distuibanco seems to bo
quietly slmmcilng down.

letter was icceivcd hero to-day.fiom a

' I asked him , " hosajs/'pattloiilarly as to his
alleged circulation personally in Mexico , of
the article complained of. Ho replied :
Upon going over to the Mexican side on
the morning of publication , 1 had In
my pocket a copy 6t the paper

whether universal bmlniscment would not
glvosllvei an equal jvaluo with gold , Just as
universal cndoisenu'tlt gave gieenb.icks an
equal value with gold , notwithstanding that
gold was at a prcmljini of forty rents on the

Beginning of the Addresses to the Jury in
the Anarchist Oaso.
Assistant States Attorney Walker
Arraign * ) the Defendants an Guilty
Whether They Were at tlio
Ilajinnrkct or Not.
Anarchists' Trial Ncnrlne the Knd.
CIIICAOO , AiiKiist 11 , A little before 10
this forenoon the defendants In the anarch
ists' trial marched Into Judge Gary's crowded
court room , headed by August Spies. Tlio
prisoners all looked smiling and apparently
unconcerned and giceted their lady friends
with smiles. They had scarcely taken their
scats when a young lady with a basket on her
arm went alone the line and presented each
of them with a bunch of flowers. One of the
papers this morning stated that Mr * . Hlnolt ,
wife of otho leading counsel fer
the defense , supplied the anarch
ists with their morning bouquets ,
She was nuotcd as saying In n tlorlst shop
" 1 wanttiiesc for the pom saints at cilmlnal
court. The dear maitvrs aio being solely
abused bv the tyiaiils now and 1 fear some
thing will happen to them , but If an > tiling
iocs there are thousands ic.uly to tear their
oppressors to pieces. " Mis . Black indig
nantly denied the remaiks attributed to her
to a leportcr tills moinlng.
Ofllcer Palmer was called to the stand by
the state and testified that Schnaubclt could
speak Kngllsh , contradicting tno statement
made by Spies on tlio stand. Tlio witness
was notcross-evuiilned. Detective Boutiuld
said that when Spies was arrested that no
ono offered him any violence whatever and
declaring that the statement madu by Spies
as to his ticatmont when taken before Super
intendent Kbersold was untiuu. A long dis
cussion then followed as to the order in
which speeches should be made to the jury.
It was finally decided that Assistant States
Attorney Walker should open for the
state , to bo followed by Zeisiei
for the defense. Ingliam will
follow for the state , and he will bo fol
lowed by Foster and Black for the defense ,
Grinnell closing the case foi the state. Mr.
Walker began by stating that In this republic
all men stood equal before the law , and when
the perpetrator ot any crime stood before the
bar for trial , the Goddess of Justice was in
dited blind until his guilt had been proven ,
no matter whether he was a socialist or an
anarchist. The very law which ho
had desired to "throttle" now stood
as his piotector until his guilt was shown ,
and In tills case proof had made the defend
ants guilty bovond a shadow of a doubt.
The speaker next called the attention of the
jury to the definition of a "reasonable
doubt" Ho quoted numerous authorities to
deline the crime of murder , and quoted to
show that any one who aided , assisted or on-
comaged a murder should be deemed guilty
and punished accordingly , and whether the
piinclpal is puuWied befoie or atter or not
punished at all. those who assisted , aided or
encouraged were equally guilty , and
should uo deemed guilty ol minder.
He then quoted from tno speech of
Solomon ot the defense , In which the latter
said if tno defendants were guilty of couscir-
acy , convict them of conspiracy but not of
mm dor. Ue timber quoted tiom Solomon's
sutecli , In which the latter asked : "Have
thev muidcred many people ? " Mr. Walker
said only seven men had been nuirdcicd and
some sixty wounded , and vet tlio counsel
asked if they had .muidiued many people.
The speaker iald but for tlio heioisiu
J&f-UieJoHcd6u Way 4 , many would have
been inuidered , and a social revolution for
which tliO'doldndants ' admit that they bought
dynamite and aims , would have oeen ac
complished. These men formed a conspir
acy , the lesult ot which was the throwing of
tnu bomb and the death of Matthias J. Dee-
gan. "The punishment foi minder , " said
tlio speaker , "is death. "
Continuing his succch at the opening of
tlio afternoon session , Mr. Walker defined
the law ol the state in i elation to accesioiies ,
and said the conviction of any ono of the
defendants was nulhoilred by the law though
ho was not piesent at the place of commis
sion ot the crime , nor had ever agreed that
the crime was to have been commuted at that
time. The fact that he had advised or eu-
couiaged the commission of such crime ,
through a speech at public meetings or
through published articles or private conver
sations , made him an ncccssoiv. Walker
spoke with contempt of tlio eflorts of ceitaln
defendants to base their hopes of acquittal
unon tliopiouud tliat they were not piesent
at tlio Haymarket when the bomb was
thrown , and characteii/ed them as the lead
ers in the conspiracy to commit wholesale
murder. lip then lead trom Most's Instruc
tions to the defendants on the witness stand
advising them first to save themselves.
If possible , for "future deeds , " and
If that pioved impossible , to use their posi
tion in thu w itncss chair to teach the princi
ples ot revolution. "This. " said the speaker ,
"was the course followed bj 1'aisons. Find
ing no loophole tor escape he turned the wit
ness stand Into the stool of piopaganda. "
Walker w as rewarded with a muimnrof
applause from the audience when he re
ferred to Spies' speech at Giaud llapldson
Washington's blithday. Said the speaker :
"Spies compared himself to ( ieoigo Washing
ton. Ho said time will bo a i evolution in
1880 when the eight-hour movement i caches
Its culmination. George Washington led
the revolution. If he had tailed ho would
have been punished. If 1 fail 1 will bo pun
ished. They aie known by numbers and not
by names , and any one can join oy applica
tion. "
Walker then icad from the testimony of
Witness Wilkinson , who swore that Spies
told him the lovolution would occcur
on the 1st of May or about that
time. "Does not this , " asked tlio speaker ,
"look like conspliacvV'1 Walker devoted
some time to an editorial iiitlclo In the
Ahum , which closed vtlth the woids : "Tho
social war has come. Whoever is not with
ns is against us. " "Does this look like con-
pnlia-iyV , asked the speaker. "The editoi of
the Alarm was A. It. Parsons , defendant.
Walker dwelt at some length on Spies'
speech to McCormlck's strikers , during the
progress of which a largo number nf his mi-
dienco bioUo awav and Joined In the riot In
which several peisons weio killed and
wounded. "Then , " said the speaker , "Spies
came back to the Arbciter Xeilung , believing
that ho ban 8,000 new converts at his back ,
and wrotuthu editorial containing the woids ,
'Had they been provided with good weapons
and ono djnamltubomb , not ono of the mur
derers would havu escaped.1"
At tills point W.ilUer read the celebrated
"revenge" circular in which the woid and
sentiment "levengu" Is thu inducement held
out to tlio rcadeiH ot the circular to attend
the meeting , and Ibo purpose to "revenge the
victims of the bloodhound police. " "Does
this look Ilko conspiracy to murder the po-
HcaV" said the speaker ; "and Is there no sitr-
nliicancu in the luct that Spies called thu re
venge meeting to meet on thu llaymaikct ,
the very place designated toltepoilcr Wil
kinson as tlio location ot the commencement
of the social i evolution ? "
Walker was still speaking when the court

The Condition ofstoelc on the Feeding

CIIICAOO , 111. , August 11. [ Special Tele
gram to tlio BKB.I John N. Simpson , presi
dent of the Live Stock association of Texas ,
is at the Palmer , having just tiavelcd over
the cattle country from the coast to Wyo
ming. Ho was asked last night about the
condition of things in that section. "There
has been an unprecedented drought , " ho re
plied , "all the way fiom the gulf to Biillsh
America west of the Mississippi , and the
effect in homo sections , especially in the
southwest , is that there will be no cattle
fiom that region tills jcar I mean fiom
Texas , Now Mexico and paits of Arizona.
Faither north the cattle aio getting fat and
are being mnrketed liom Montana now. My
observation In Wyoming was that theio
was good fair range and that the
cattle wcro fat and looking well.
There is plenty of grass now , but
it will bo short theio next winter. Aiovolu-
tlnn Is going on in tlio beef business. There
will bo a chance fiom shipment of live stock
to a shipment of dicssed beef and In my
opinion It will come fiom the Missouri river
points Kansas City nnd Omaha and also St.
Paul , Eventually moat will bo dressed theio
and shl piied east and tlio stock j aids busi
ness ot Chicago will bo nlfectcd very much.
But I do not know that It will hint tno laigo
slaughter houses lieie. They aie supplied by
a lane distilet of coin ted cattle. Aiinonr ,
bwlft , Morris and Hammond diaw their sup
plies fiom it and aio not dependent on the
