Herald Cable Special to tinBiK.1 Fifty
thousand people , shouting at the top of their
voices "Vivo Boulangor , " "Vivo Boulan-
gcr , " came swarming into the Place do
Lopcra at 0 o'clock to-nlu'ht , causing tre
mendous excitement and commotion. The
opera house was magnificently Illuminated
and covered with Hags and trophies bear
ing Inscriptions. From the military club
corner the me do La Paris and the
Avenue opera directly opposite the Grand
opeia house three batteries of nlectrlc lUhts
own full upon the facade and gilded lyres
of the crown's statues , setting forth tlio
magnificent building In dazzling splendor ,
the occasion being the grand military festi
val organized by the army otllcuis and over
which General Boulanger , then minister of
war , was to preside , a duty that now de
volves upon his successor , General Fcrron.
During the whole day thn people wcro very
much excited , and as an American resident ,
who was here during the revolution of 18-18 ,
the coup d' otat of the third Napoleon and
the siege of Paris In 18TO-71 and tlio terrible
days of the commune , said : "Things look
lively. Paris Is hot tor something. "
Till : FlliST DIS1UIIIIANCK.
The first disturbance came elf In front of
the chamber of deputies at 0 o'clock this eve
ning , when several hundred students and
men In blouses collected , reading aloud Gen
eral Boulanger's farewell address to the
army , shouting "Vive Boulanger , " and sing
ing thu "Marsellalse. " The police dispersed
thu crowd with very little difficulty , the
ring leaders merely saying , with significant
Bintles , "Oh , all right , vvu "hall meet later at
the Place do Lopera. An revolr. "
nociii'.KoiiT'a ri.AMt.No AIITICLK.
To-day's demolish allons are greatly due to
the flaming leader written by Henri Itocho-
fort In Intransigent , headed , "LoMinistcio
Allomand , " which was seen everywhere this
morning , In thu boulevards , on the tops of
omnibuses. Tills is tlio time Hochclort hit
the nail right In expressing thu exact teeling
of ninty-nlne out of every hundred of the
inhabitants of Belleville and all the central
nnd northern quatters of Paris. After pitch
ing Into M. Kouvlcr , Hochcrfort turns upon
General Ferron and says : "Wo don't know
Geneial Ferron , but ho must be a verlta
bio hero if ho Is able to face the
shouts of "Vivo Boulanger" that are sure to
resound in his ears every time ho appears In
public , and especially at the great review on
the 14th of July. Nevertheless , as his by-
woid Is to merrily snore In his easy chalr-
and not make a single rltlo barrel without
first asking the permission of Germany , It
ficcms to mo to bo much better and certainly
more economical to annex the ministry of
war during this ploughman soldier's tenure
of otlico to the ministry of agriculture. "
WHAT THK EVENING 1'AI'EIIS SAY.
The ovenlni ? papers say this Is rather lough
on Forron , especially as ho [ served alt his life
In the engineers and belne on duty In Now
Caledonia In 1870 , was unable to reach
France and take putt In the war. So at 8
o'clock this evening Parisians worked thcm-
tclvcs up to a fever heat and marched 50,000
Btrouc towards the opera house , they shoutIng -
Ing "Boulanger , " "Boulanger , " "Boulan-
ger , " In short , sharp staccato syllable baiks
something like the Harvard cheer. Expect
ing that an attempt would be made to dis
tend the presidents slumbcrs.a strong force ot
soldiers and police was posted at all approaches
preaches to the palace Elyseu with the
strictest orders to challenge all suspicious per
sons to prevent a riot. Late in thu evening a
gang of several hundred Borges workingmen
men slouched down the faubourg St. Uonore
yelling and cheering. They cot as far as the
rue Boisny unmolested , but there came In
contact with thu troops , who quickly sent
them about their business. After they were
dlspeised they reformed and marched up
and down the boulevard do la Molclne , where
they made night hideous shouting , "Vivi
Boulanger , " and sinning a war song manii
factored for the occasion , with the Incohcr
ent refrain of "Grevy dart Bou
langer , est plus fort ministers. " Thej
did not seem to be veij
dangerous characters. Shop boys and IdU
apprentices seemed to bo in the majority
but among them I noticed a strong leaven ol
well-known communists and scores of frcn
zied scribes from socialist newspaper offices
one of whom flustered the bystanders for i
moment by suddenly Irrlne off a toy plsto
near the opera. Beyond the firing of tha
ono toy pistol no artillery was unllinbcrei
to-ulcht , and after bellowing till they wen
nearly black In the face , about 1 a. m. Ir

Tha military fete Inside the opera was
triumphant success. The receipts exccedn
150,000 francs. The Intel lor ot the gram
cdlllco was aclow with electric , lights am
crowded to suffocation. Neither General
Boulanger nor Fcrron wcro present. Ferroi
had his hands full at thu ministry of wai
Itontangcr , who had not , as given out , lei
Paris , spent part of the evening at tlio Hole
du Louvre. Later ho went for a qulc
walk on . the boulevard. Every othe
public official , political and theatrics
celebrity lu Paris was present , many bla/ln
with every Imaginable decoration. A drn
malic Incident of the evening was Gouno
leading the military band of COO trumpets I
the soldiers' chorus from "Faust. " Th
master resembles Dom Pedro. Ho led wit
courage , showing that Mrs. Weldon was nr
n iho house. Distinguished members o
nearly all the Parisian theaters appeared o

little attempt at dancing , owing to the crusl

greatly bored , yawned and fin all

diverting the audience from U
political dcmonstiatlon outside. H

from the box. The sharp laugh of a giddy gl

Ho Will Make n Trip of Over a Year
XEW Yonn , May St. The World will print
to-morrow an Interview with Mr. Blalno at
Bar Harbor. In which ho gave fully his plans
for thu coming trip , discussed the f also re
ports of his falling health and referred at
length to the work ho has bestowed on the
books Just llnlthed. He says his visit abroad
will last over a year and doubtless
beyond the next national con
vention. Ho will Eall on Juno 8
with his wlfo and two dauzhtcrs. They will
stay at Southampton and upend considerable
time traveling through Great Britain , thence
to Germany , France. Spain and Italy , spend
ing next winter along the Mediterranean.
Keterrlng to the report that ho
contemplated In some way assist
ing Gladstone and the home rule
party Mr. Blalno said the story was purely
imaginative. Tlio reporter asked him as to
the truth of thu report that the trip is for
the benefit ot his health , and Mr. Blalno
said : It Is very serious about that report. I
have been made sick by various newspapers
at various times and been made to have
nearly every malady I know of.
I have , In fact , been singularly
free from sickness and never had an
organic trouble of any kind. " Mr. Blalno
positively declined to talk about politics ex
cept .speaking of the Burchard Incident in
IfcM , when ho said , "I did not hear what ho
said , but the reporters heard It and the next
d iy every pappr In tlm country had It of
course. But , as a matter of lact , I did not
hear It myself. That Is what lost me the
election. In Now York City alone
it lost mo several thousand votes. A
good deal more than enough to have
carried the state. 1 have felt sure that I was
not elected , It was a matter of less than fiOO
votes to have turned Now York the other
way. If It was close as that there
can be no certainty of the count.
I do not think It can ever bo said
with certainty which ono of us really got
most of the votes. "

NEW YORK , May 31. ( Special Telegram to
the Bnn.l A dispatch to the Tribune from
Washington says : Sectetary Bavard's con-
duet In the Cutting case was different from
what It Is In the case of an untortu-
nato Cuban-American by the name of
Publo , who has languished In a
Spanlsn prison for over two years now , and
whoso liberation he does not seem anxious 10
secure. In the local organ of the adminis
tration ! Secretary Bayard says that his case
has not been brought to the attention of the
state department by anybody. This Is not a
fact. The case has been for two vears In the
hands of the American consul-general at
Havana , appointed by the present adminis
tration. Assistant Secretary Porter , of the
state department , cave to a friend of the
prisoner , who applied to him as a reason
vvhv tills government did nut act moro ener
getically in the case , the "lack of navy" to
support any demand upon a pnwerlike Spain ,
and ho made at the same time the humiliat
ing confession that England would probably
long before this have secured tlio release of
an Englishman placed lu the same position
that Publo Is. The president has on two
occasions been appealed to , but so far with
out any result. Publo Is a Cuban and was
concerned in an uprlbliu which ended with
the peace of Xanzon. After this ho came to
this country and settled in New York where
he edited a Cuban paper and became a natur
alized American citl/cu. Subsequently ho
engaged In the tobacco business in New
ork. Two years ago ho went to Key West
to conclude some purchase of tobacco and
make arrangements for some contracts.
While In Key West he heard of the death ot
his aunt In Havana , whereby his only sister ,
unmairled , was left alone and unpiotected.
Being much concerned about her ho deter
mined to go to Havana with a view of bring-
Ine his sister to tha United States and enter
ing into arrangements wMe there with rome
leaf tobacco merchants for such leaf tobacco
as ho should need. Ho went to tbo
Spanish consulate and obtained
his American passport which he
duly sinned and armed with his legal docu
ment then took passage on an American
steamer bound for Cuba. Ho was arrested
lust us ho landed , the Spaniards t nun pine
up a charge of conspiracy against him. He
did not have with him any papers of a com
promising character. The only grounds for
the charge against Publo is that while In this
country ho was a member of a secret society
and edited Cuban-Spanish papers. Publo
was arrested on or about November 20 , 18S4 ,
and In the twenty-six months that he has been
Incaiceiatcd In a Spanish dungeon he has
only heard from the United States consul
some three or four i lined.
THE DIG WHKAT DEATj.
Armour Undoubtedly the Man Who Is
CHICAGO , May 31. [ Special Telegram to
the BKK.I The "Mail to-night publishes a
letter which says : "lam fli inly of the opin
ion and have good reasons for believing so ,
that the wheat deal Is operated by Armour ,
together with parties In Galveston and the
Standard oil company. Whatever may be
said to the contrary , there Is no question but
that Armour Is the manipulator of the deal.
Any Impression that may have gone abroad ,
either through brokers who have been sup
posed to act for tboclique , orpurchases made
by himself , or his friends In other parts of
the country , is done to cover bis hand and to
assist in manipulation of the deal. There
is not the slightest doubt but that the clique
have every dollar necessary hero in New
York and other points to carry the deal
to c successful Issue. Of this there is no
doubt whateve. . Armour's sale of 12,000,000
atbSuJbOc was done tor effect , and inn chases
lu Minneapolis to arrive helped to fill cle-
valors. The market has been and Is , en
, tirely at their will , and has fluctuated up and
down , as It suited their purpose. They may
soil off to-day at bsc or S'c ! ' , not wishing to
pay hlirher , but I am satisfied Juno will
touch Ittc , and oven 31 has been talked about.
, They have an Influence on old quotations as
well as a hand In manipulating cron reports
in this country. There aio probably others
in tlio deal , of which 1 am not certain , but 1
am positive these parties aie interested ,
aud all rumors to the contrary
are only allowed to be circulated
to draw more shorts Into the trap. Some ot
the clique brokers may oven believe that
signs ot weakness have been shown , but that
impression 1ms been allowed to go abroad
purposely and designedly. It Is almost abso
lutely certain that they will take and pay foi
June wheat and that the corner will be on
after the first of June. The holdings of the
clique are enormous , much greater than any
figures that have been supposed. They ma >
fill orders today at 83 or b'Jc , but I think then
if : Is no question but that today will bo the lasl
y day of craco for shoits , DJC aild SI being price

They will not accept the decision asapnlylng
to any of tliu other olllccr.s dropped In IbS-l ,

based on tliu fact that while General llelknap ,

announcing his dismissal under sentence of

piesident ( Grant ) had opposed tliu Undines
and sentence , Grant's signature does not an-
peai In any endorsement on the papers. It
