The Mclirlctit O wo In Court.
LONDON , Nov. 12. The Sebrlght divorce
case wns brought up for preliminary hearing
to-day. The nction Is brought by Mrs.
Arthur Sebrlght , who asks to have her mar
riage declared void on the grounds that she
was induced to consent to have tlio cere
mony performed by fear , nnd that the mar
riage lias never been consummated. The
plaintiff Is the daughter of Lady Scott , of
Southampton , nnd 1 s noted for her beauty.
Tlio defendant Is n well known London
club man. The plaintiff's friends assert that
thu defendant , coveting her private
fortune of 8200,000 , matured to In-
' " " * velglu her into linanclnl transactions
"v which finally fell upon her for settlement at
n time when she had to choose between re
fusing to pay nnd be compromised , or es
caping by marrying the defendant nnd per-
mlttln/ him to liquidate. At tlio hearing
to-day Mr. Sebrlght's counsel admitted thu
marriage , which ho says was performed nt
n registrar's last January. Ho contended ,
however , that no marital relation had ever
taken place ; that the unities had never lived
together , and that there had been
no' Impropilety In the financial trans
actions whicli caused thu marriage.
Mr. Sebrlght had Induced the petitioner to
accept ceitnln bills , nnd she hnd been led to
bellevo that the marriage ceremony between
her nnd tne respondent would relieve her of
linanelal liability incurred. The judco said
L lie thought that under these circumstances It
would bu Impossible to nullify thu marriage ,
and announced that ho would hear the testi
mony with u view to deciding if there was
HUlllclent reason to grant a divorce. Mrs.
Sebrlght was called to thu witness stand and
Bworn. Shu testlllcd that through her father
the had inherited In tier own
name SK > 0,000 , in addition to n
reversion of S1.V,000 ) on the death of her
mother. She had met Mr. Sebrlght when she
was hut llfteen years of age , and the ac
quaintance had been continuous. Ho pro
posed marriage to her after they hnd been
acquaintances n short time only , but her
mother declined to permit nn engagement.
Mr. Scbrlu'hlcontinued his visits to thuhuuse ,
and was received on terms of irieiulshlp.
l-'lnally Mr. Seabrlght Induced the witness lo
engage herself to him in marriage unknown
to her mother. After this he persuaded her
to sign "bits of paper" which he supplied.
Eventually witness ascertained Hint she had
appended her nnino to notes nnd
bills nnd made herself liable for sums
amounting to SW.Oi'i. When they were
hoivcd upon her she appealed to Sebright.
Ho said the only way she could savu hersell
from ruin was by marrying him. This , wit
ness said , she refused to do. Mr. Sebrlght
, next requested witness to meet him alone ,
t Shu did so. llo took her to n place unknown
' to her , but which she learned was a rejtlstrj
olllce. Slut tylshod to leave thu room the
moment she found where shu was. Counl
Balhanny , a friend of Sebrlght's , who was
present , locked the door , and Sebright said
to her that lie would shoot her if she dared
Jf to show that she was not acting with tree
f will in the marriage which ho was about tc
have performed between them. Ho then
| L forced n ling on her linger , and witness throv
% . it oil' nnd again tried to leave the room
) Sebright seized her by the arm nnd forcee
her back nnd made her sign the register
Witness said thatshedld not hear the reglstrai
read the form of inarrlagcuor hear him say
anything. "I was too upset and too dread
fully frUhtencd , " she declared , "to hear any
thing at the time. "
The registrar being sworn deposed that
when Mrs. Scbrlcht was before him she was
agitated , but that shu repeated the marriage
declaration without nny hesitation , nnd alsc
tlio marriage form when Sebright took lie :
hand , Witness added that subsequently tin
lady throw the nmrrkigo ring on thu lloor
but slinied the registry without hesltatloi
or demurring.
Lady Scott , Mrs. Sebrlght's mother , niu
two doctors tcstllied that the petitioner wa :
completely broken down , mentally and phys
ically. after tlio ceremony , and was alwayi
tremulous nnd crvlng , and In constant terror
At this point thuliearing in thu case was ad

the IHu.1 It was about C:30 : this morning
when Packlngtown began to assume the np-
uearanco of business activity. Long before
this the militia had been posted on picket
duty around the yards , nnd soon the rush of
men in search of work began. At 0:43 :
o'clock a train of six cars pulled out on the
Lake Shore road , Every car wns jammed.
The cars were designed to hold sixty pcoplo
acli , hut It Is safe to say that COO men got oil
.hoso . six cars. This train was followed by
nothcroftho same kind , Most of the men
, vent Into Armour & Oo.'shouso nnd a few
wittered to the various packinghouses In the
ards. At Washington Hutcher's Sous
louse fully 0,000 men were in line wnltlnc
'or a chance to reach the breakfast tables. A
eng line of deputy sheriffs kept the crowd in
irder. A similar scene Is enacted every
nornlng In Armour & Co.'s three dining
oems , nnd In those of Swift *
'o. . Noise Morris , nnd Fowler Bros ,
There was n large increase In the nuinbci
if men at work to-day , nnd It would
eem that In a few days the houses would
mvo full gangs nt work. Ono packer , on
ooklng over n crowd ot a thousand or more ,
remarked that the mat crlnl wns none of the
best nnd would need considerable weeding
out before it would bo very serviceable. Then
Is a crowd of colored people among tlir Inr
jtorted men. Of the imported men one was
recognized ns an ex-captain in the Thirtieth
inccn's dragoons , onn of the crack Kngllsli
regiments. Seven years ago ho drove throncli
London in ills own drag nnd kept four ser
vants. He was a prime tavorito , but lived
above his means and this morning applied
"orn position at 82 a day. A prominent
.tackcr , who replied to a question as to the
probability of a speedy settlement , said thai
whllo they would all willingly have peace
they would not now take back all or even
nny largo percentage of the strikers. In the
lirst place there wns not nearly ns mucli
business to transact ns formerly , owing to
the loss ot European contracts , which the I in
pending trouble bad proven ted competition
for by the Chicago packers , and in the secom ;
place the employers were provided will
many uood men who had come to them ir
their time of need , and who would be kept ni
work. They would not be allowed to go a ;
they were at the settlement ot tlie last strike
because they were much stronger In mimboi
nnd because if they were not protected anc
were forced to leave by Intimidation tlioj
would never bu wllllnir to uo to work nni
hell ) the packers out in nny trouble in tin
future. "Liesides this the election Is over , '
said the speaker , "and wu an ; convinced thai
the authorities will not dare to wink at 1x113
violations ot the law which the striken
might commit In assaulting the now men , a ;
they might do In order to gain votes befon
the election. You can put It down that thi :
time the new men will be protected , am
will not bo driven from their places bj

Ono small riot , promptly nipped In the bud
was all that occurred at the stock yards tc
day to relieve the monotony of the situation
A hundred or so of strikers attempted to tea
in pieces the ontlit of a recently engaged em
ployo of Armour & Co. , who was moving to i
new place of residence. Some of the sheriff *
deputies interfered before much damage wa
done , but the mob remained In the vicinit1
for some time , and ut last accounts the nri
fortunate employe was still under protoctloi
of astrone guard. There Is n larco Increas
In the number of men at work , and it wouli
seem that in a few days the houses wo ill
have full trangs at work. A committee con
sistlng of Messrs. Harry , larleton , Marshal
and Schilling , was In session all morning a
the Transit nouso. Numerous visitors wer
ushered up stairs to the room in which th
committee sat , but no amount of inqiilr
could elicit any Information , A new featnr
of the strike Is the boycotting of Armour'
meats by District Assemblies 57 and 2-1
Knights of Labor. A local boycott has bcei
placed on Underwood & Co.
To-night many people are of the opinlo
that the slock yards strike will bu settled Ix

Armour knows more about the probabilitio
nnd possibilities of a settlement tnan an
ono. Ho to-day decides not to take any mermen
men until Monday , and It Is this fact tha
gives color to thohtiliof that the matter wli
be settled before that day. Many rumors n
to the settlement are in circulation , but non
that could bo continued. One report was thn
thn proprietors of two smallc

leaders received as well ns sent many tele

lately declined to nay n word as to whothu

to-night Messrs. liarry and Carleton sai

Idea that the meeting would ho fruitless an
that tlio packers merely wished to show th ;
the employers' original plan had not ix-o
changed. Messrs. Harry and Oarleton di

WASIHNHTON , Nov. 12. [ SpecialTelegram
to the JJKK.J Senator Sherman is at his
Wnshlnaton homo now. Ho nrrls-cd last
night from Now York , llo says the recent
elections hnvo boon n great surprise to both
parties , but have been favorable to the repub
licans , llo is gratified over the gains In
Ohio nnd thinks Inbor hns become n factor so
important In politics that It must bo recog
nized. ' 'In Ohio , for some reason which It
would be dlfllcult to explain , the Knights of
Libor made n determined light against ( Sen-
oral Kennedy and reduced the rcirular ma
jority In ono county nioro than ton thousand
votes. There Is ono noticeable Icaturu In the
labor movement. It Is confined almost en
tirely to cities and towns. People living In
the country districts rarely change their poli
tics. There nre counties In Ohio that have
given democratic majorities from Andrew
.1 nelson's time down. The vote against
Speaker Carlisle wns confined almost entirely
to the clt'es ' In ills district. Undoubtedly the
result of the election is a blow at free trade.
1 bellevo that there has been n decided
growth in protection ideas all over
the country and especially In the south.
The people are Impressed with the
fact that American Industries should bo pro
tected. The democrats in the south who
have naturally voted with the democrats
when It comes to the direct question : Shall
tlio duty on tliis or that article bo removed V
will vote with the republicans before they
will consent to it. Industries are starting
ip in many places in the south and the pco
ilo will naturally wish to protect them. Free
rode , in my judgment , has received n very
severe sot back. The outlook Is very promts-
tig for the republicans In 1SS8. "

the horizon and came so near sweeping the

"IJeed Is what wo call in Colorado a 'daisy
itreacher , " ' said Major W. S. Peabody , of
Denver. "Ho Is onu of the best all-around
preachers and rough-and-tumble politicians 1

people leirnrded him with indifference foi
awhile. But his habits were unusual for r
minister , and they were popular , llo wcnl
on the streets everywhere , into Hie public
places , attended tlio courts , conventions ,
everywhere , and the fruits of his observa

out into the mining districts , remaining
weeks at limns , camping with thu boys , toll-
ins stories and making smiles everywhere
nnd nt the same time preaching on Sundays

full of Howcrs and rhetoric
nnd lie always onrnnturcs the

the ladles. Ho usually wears a great
white sombrero , nnd ottcn goes liorscbact

At the treasury department It is said tha
the most , serious problem to come before congress
gross , ami one ot the most momentous nov
before the country Is the national bankiiu
Interests. Ity the end of the prudent lisca
year , Juno : ! 0 next , nil of thu 510,000,030 : i pui
cents nre to bo culled in. Nearly nil of thesi
are held by Iliu banks to secure circulation
nnd us fast as they are called others must lit
deposited with the treasurer or the charter
of the banks ownlnu them will be forfeited
One of the most serious aspects In which tin
situation can bo viewed IB the dissolution o
n majority of the national banks In the smal
cities , banks having less than 5200,000 eapl
tal. Most of tliufl's are owned by the sinnl
banks , and they are notlfvlnu thoconiptrollc
of currency that they will not buy bonds a
the- premiums commanding now , am
will therefore go out of business. The largi
banks In the great cities lenort thnt they in
preparing lo reduce their ciiculatillg medlini
to the minimum 5r,0,000 nnd thnt thoywil
stay. Their capital stock will remain. Thl
process , they say nt the treasury department
acts thu MUIIO ns high license upon the snlooi
business thu bitr ones will stay in. but th
small ones will bo fiq/.en out. Thu smal
banks me the ones all'ordlng most nn !
versal accommodation. Under thu prcsen
picssuro of nubile sentiment against , th
national banks , It Is not now thought thn
congress will provide other bonds forbccurln
circulation till nfter the next preshleiithi
election , That Is three years away. It 1
conceded that eighteen months wil
not pass before the foundation I
n majority of the small banks wl !
bo removed. Then there will bo opportunlt
a Herded the lo/lslnlnre to inaugurate system
of state banks before congress can act. One
established , the state banks will bu slow t
comn back with thu national system , Thl
Is the viuw the most experienced treasury oil
cluls take of the situation. It is sm-'geste
bv an experienced national banker in thl
city that Instructions should bu clvun by al

however , she thought 'the s.ild is soon

Civil Service Commissioner Kdgerton has

Mr. Kdiierton's home is at Fort Wayne , and
although he Is n nnd Mr. 'Lowry is
n democrat he spoke his mind , privately
though remarkably plainly , to his domociatle
friends when al home on two or tliioo occa
sions during the campaign nnd advised them
to vote lor Captain white , thu lepubllcau
candidate , "because one represents the cor
ruption of olllce spoils , whllo the other Is
nbovo ollice Jobbery nnd the slum system. "
Mr. Kdgerton takes some prldu In tno over-
vlielmlng defeat of Lowry , since , ho says ,
ho canvass was made purely on the snolls
ssne. Ho thinks that If the civil
ervlco reform policy of the ndmlii-
stnttion had been hel'oro the
otcrs of Indiana for endorsement , nnd
hat It was pitted against thu spoils policy
of tlio leaders of the party there , as rnpro-
ented by Mr. Lowrv , that It would have
carried by at least 20,000. Mr. Kdgerton pie-
nres in uhnvtng colors the manner In which
wmo federal ollloers were made to no out nnd
vork for the spoils candidates , nnd is happy
lint their masters were properly rebuked.
Jo takes pleasmo In the election of his per
sonal friend , Colonel Robertson , to bu

ho warmest triends. He says ho will go

sed to mnku In thu event the latter was

only speak of the colonel personally.
