matrimonially referred to in mv cable dis
patch of September 7. She U'cenlly
received a communication from her
husband's solicitors relating to tholr
domestic dillicultlus , Her solicitor
replied , and approached his solicitors with a
view to serve Solomon with a copy ot a peti
tion for divorce. It was arranged that ho
thould be served , with th < > understanding
that she should vote In fa4 , or of her husband's
olferat a meetlni : of his credllois under a
bankruutcy petition. This bho agieed to ,
nnd an appointment was madu for this morn-
Ing. At noon ho was at her .solicitor's olllcu
nt thu appointed time. The wife's solicitor
arrived shortly afterward. Solomon was
secreted In a room until all the preliminary
arrangements had been nude between the
legal gentlemen engaged. He was then
introduced and was served with the petition
nn agreed.
Without the slightest nppichenslon of the
Into awaiting him , Solomon Invited her
solicitor to luncheon. They went through
Turlington gardeds , near tlio Bristol hotel.
Detective Drew thereupon stepped up and ,
touching Solomon on the shoulder , Inquired
Ills name. The solicitor answered In Indig
nant terms , thereupon ttic detective blew n
whistle nnd Mrs. Solomon appeared. She
said : "Uc Is my husband. I uivo him Into
custody on the charge of bigamy. "
Both Solomon and his solicitors protested ,
requesting that they be shown a wanant , but
they were Informed that a warrant was tin-
nec.'ssaiy. Them , crestfallen , thu alleged
bigamist was marched otf to Bow street ,
whcroTor some hours ho had an opportunity
of considuiIiiK his position In solitude.

In the cell wheic I met him he said : "This

for ten ycai.s. This Is a case of consplincy ,
which 1 will show up clearly. I suppose the
court room will bo packed , as usual , when a
matrimonial sensation Is going on. 1 believe
that a technical point -j\liether any ceio-

lieve It has bcijn held that a marriage con
tracted lu America does not stand good In

more. Lillian Knssell Is In California now. "
"What was your wlfo when you married
lier ? "
"She was on the Music hall stage. 1 didn't
know that she was nllvo or that there was
such a person. "
In the court I found Lily Grey , a tall , fair
young woman and a Jewess. She , was with
her mother , who had as determined a look as

Mr. Lo Breton , barrister , a brother to

OTTAWA , Canada , hept. U'l. ISpeclalTele-
grain totho Bnr. . ] Tlio tuio mission of the
Irish loyal and patriotic delegates Dr. Kane
nnd Mr. Smith , became known here last
night. At a large banquet of a party of po
litical wire-pullers , given to the so-called
Irish loyalists ] ) r. Kane praised the domin
ion government for having put down the
northwest rebellion and for hanging Louis
Kiel. "Iieland , " ho said , "was struggling
with such a rebellion , and It v > as lor Britain
to put down 1'arnell and the I'arnellltes. "
Mr. Smith , however , outdid hl compan
ion. The local liberal paper , the Free Pie s ,
had criticised fairly their mission. Smith
blackguarded its editor and snceringly
pointed to the renresentatlve of the uaper ,
who sat at the table , angered because ho could
Bet a jouinallst , who was coolly reading the
paper. Enragea ho kept up this tirade ot
abuse , and stated that he could not expect
anythinc belter from the reform party. He
abused the French population , told stories
and ranted In a most inglorious manner
about the rogue generals of home rule.
The tory leaders here have found that thcv
have made a great mistake , and liberal stock
has pone up over this hoisting of King Wil
liam's tlag over a hundicdfolU. The banquet
lasted until an early hour this morning.

however , that auangcments have been com

Protest Asninst the Callina ; of the
Three 1'crCcRt. Bonds.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 20. Inquiry was
nmdo at the treasury department to-day in
regard to the published statement that na
tional banks .are being greatly disturbed by
calling In the three per cent , bonds which
form the prlucipal basis of their circulation.
It was learned that several of these Institu
tions have given notice of withdrawal from
the system and others are trying to havn
their called bonds returned as a basis for cir
culation , preferlng to forego the Inteiest al
together rather than risk buying tlio four and
four and one-half per cents , at tlio present
high premiums. It has been held by the
treasury department that wnen the bonds
cease to bear Intelest they become unavail
able ns a basis for circulation. This ruling ,
however , has lately been contested bv some
banks and the question has been referred to
the attorney general for his opinion. Until
this decision Is rendered the department must ,
of course , adliuro to Its practice. In many
OT-e-t. however , banks whose bonds havoh. ;
called are deferring their replacement , ex
pecting , apparently , a decision allowing
thosn bonds to remain. In the meantime the
comptroller of the currency , treasmer and
register are so busily engaged with replace
ments and withdrawals that it Is not consid
ered likelv the department will bo very exact
ing with the banks that have failed to .surren
der their called bonds. A letter was lecel ved
to-day from H leading financier of Now York
suggesting that , as an exchange of bonds will
lock up a good dcalot money lust at this
time when it is In great need In moving
crops , etc. , it would not bo well for the cov-
cinment to foice the banks beyond a reason
able degree of diligence In substituting other
bonds for the calU d Us. It Is understood thu
question will bu loll open until tlio return of
Attoiney General Garland , who Is expected
back about the lust of the ui'inth.

CHICAGO , Sept. a ? . ( Special Telegram to
thu UIK. ) ( ifivei nor Dick Oslcsby , wearing
a critical look bun I ml liU "specs , " headed the
parly of plouio pneumonia experts that took
the ic ular dally excursion out tothol'liicnlx
distillery this morning to Inspect the cattle
there tor traces of the dreaded disease. The
governor was accompanied by Dr. Salmon ,
state \cterlnarlan ; Attorney General Hunt ,
who came up to discuss the le a ! aspect of
the matter ; Dr. Itauch , secretary of the state
board of health , who saw In the excursion a
good opportunity of Investigating the quality
of milk extracteil fiom cows fed on swill and
quarteied In bad-smelling sheds , and by Dr.
ISobeitson , president of the Iowa state boaul
of health ; Dr. Do Wolf , Vetcilnarian Cas-
well , Dr. W. O. Baker of Champaign , 111. ,
Mr. Pearson and Mr. MeCliesney of the state
live stock commission. Pearson's streak of
economy , which led him to make i o of the
North Side street cars to get to the distillery
jestciday , vanished this moining In the
presence of so much authority , and ho hired
tin ee hacks to carry the distinguished visit
or ? . The party left the Giand Pa
cific at 11 o'clock and got to
the distillery a llttlo before noon.
A half hour was consumed by the go\ernor
In nibbing his rleht ear against the cow's ribs
to detect the presence of some tlaw in the
lungs , and In scraping small spots of swill
from his fall overcoat , and then the crowd
adjourned to sco a sick cow despatched by
Dr. Baker. The governor shuddered as the
animal kicked In her last struggle for life and
cast her fast-glaring eye on him lu mute
appeal. But when the doctor dragged thu
ungsoutand sliced thorn up , the governor
pa/ed on the moist chunks with the Inteiest
of an old expert in animal diseases. All thu
doctors agiced that the animal had a splen
did case ot plemo , and Dr. Uobuitson took n
slice of the light lung away with him to show
the Iowa people what kind of a breathing
apparatus the Illinois cattle have. After this
examination the excursionists dioyo over to
the Shufeldt distillery to make an inspection
The visit of Dr. Rauch Is looked upon with
suspicion by milkmen , as It is feared he will
make n report to thu boaid lecommunding
the stoppage of the sale ot milk I mm dis
tillery cows. Dr. Kauch took possession of
the I'lucnlx about twelve yeans azo ,
ns he savs , because of the filthy
condition of the stables. He would
not say to-day whether the stables aio any
cleaner now than they were at the tiuio men
tioned. Ho also lofused to tell what ho in
tended to do with refeienco to the milk ques
tion. Tlio milkmen aic still protesting -
oiously against the condemning ot the nni-
maK Ono of them this morning objected to
the doctors "making any experiments" with
his cows , and ho looked with stloomy disfavor
on the governor in his act of testing the les-
pliatlon of thu brutes. He was told that ho
would be paid for all the cows killed and his
wi.xth subsided. Another milkman last
night got his cow out of quarantiuo and ,
eluding tlio sheriff , swam it across tlio river
behind a boat. But the cow was unable to
land on the other side , and after repeated
efforts to get a foothold on the dock , sank
back into a watery giave , leaving the owner
to mourn her loss.
Tlio state live stock commission held a long
meeting with closed doois this attcrnoon
and evening , and discussed the disposition
of the cattle aflllcted with pletiro-pneumonia
In Chicago distilleries. Governor Oglesby ,
Attorney General Hunt and Dr. Kauch , ot
the state board of health , took part in thopio-
coedlngs. Veterinarians Salman. Casewall.
Hughes , Baker , Murray , Atkinson , and the
Iowa state veterlnailan were present. J. 13.
Sherman , president of the live stock ex-
chanire , Elmer Washburn and the exchange
attorney , Mr. Coy , also attended the session.
The latter three gentlemen admitted that
whether tlio sickness was contagious plcuro-
pneumonia , as the veterinarians had all de
cided , or something else , it was unquestiona
bly a dangerous disease und one that should
bo exterminated at all ha/ards. They agreed
with the board and veterinarians
that the only safe thing to do
would bo to destroy all the animals that
had been exposed or were ntfected. It was
proposed that a post mortem examination on
napfi animal should be held , and these found
to be healthy should fco 8 M for beef. The
representatives from stock yards strenuously
opposed his proposition. They said they
would not allow the exposed cattle to bo
placed on the maiket either on hoof or as
beef. The live stock interests of the west
weio too great and widespread to be so jeep
ardised. Humors would soon be cast abroad
that diseased meat was ollercd for sale in
Chicago. The eastein and foielgn trade
would surely suffer. Canneis would not
daio handle beef , as a largo part of their
trade was with foielgn countries and they
would not take the risk of having edicts Is
sued by other nations pioliibitlng the Im-
poitatlon of American canned beef. Tim sale
ot healthy caicasses mlcht also give nn oppor
tunity for the disease to spread and become
a standing irenace to the gieat cattle inter

During the discussion it was developed
that should the cattle now under quai-
antino bo slaughtered and either actuated or

tional S50.0X ) would bo icqulred to replace
the sheds If burned. To cover this outlay of
MSO.uoo there Is only available an appropria
