to the BK.K.I The sensation of the hour la
the expose of the criminal record of the
vice president and manager of tliu American
Telephone company. The history of this
man lias been known ton number of news
paper men In Washington for some tlino ,
butns liuFcomcd to bo engaged In legltmato
business there was no disposition on their
part to Injure him or his prospects. It WAS
only after It became known that
the company was encaged In question
able operations that It was decided to print
the truth about the organ ! /.cr. Kvcnts have
shown that the story came out Just In the
nick of time. The local papers today are full
of the affair and the ofllnes along "News
paper How" have been beselgcrt by scores of
government clerks and others who have
cither Invested or who were about
to do so. The alluring circulars
prepared by Tyrcr were well timed. They
were distributed among department clerks
Just before the smnl-monthly pay day and It
IB learned that a great many employes of
the government proposed to Invest a part of
their salaries on the The publications
made yesterday and to-day will doubtless
chock them. There has been a creat deal of
talk about libel suits and last night one of
the directors of the company announced that
olio of the local papers ( onlay vrould print a
thorough vindication of the character of the
accused. Instead of a vindication the paper
referred to printed half a column which Is us
scvoro as any of the storUs which have
been sent. out. Tyrer cannot bo
found to-day. It is learned that ho took a
night boat to Norfolk last evening , and It Is
not likely that ho will bo present at the meet
ing of the directors which has been called for
to-morrow morning. Major IJuttorworth ,
president of the company , has been tele
graphed for , and will doubtless be hero In the
morning , it Is reported that there are sev
eral other members of congress who have
been caught by the oily tongue of Mr. Tyrer.
Senator Sabln , of Minnesota , who kni'.w of

It is said that ho encouraged T > rcr with

Washington's Elevated Itond.
WASHINGTON , . ) line 18. | Special Telegram
totho IKI.J ! It Is stated that efforts will DO
made this winter to Induce congress to grant
a franchise to an elevated railroad company ,
and that It Is the purpose of the corporation
to put In operation a complete system of ele
vated transportations. 1 have mentioned
the scheme to a number of property owners
here and politicians who will have to do with
It when the matter comes before concicss ,
It It ever does , and with one accord they speak
discouraging ! ) ' of the project. There Is no
place In the country where It Is so difficult to
get the right to occupy the streets as In Wash
ington. It will bo remembered that a very
able attempt was mane by well known citi
zens to eet a charter through congress last
winter for the construction of a cable rail
way , and that It failed. People are com
plaining that the streets are already too much
cut up and dlsllgured by railroads and tele
graph companies to put all their wires under
ground. With this kind of sentiment It is
not at all likely that the property owners will
submit to having the streets and avenues dis-
llgured by elevated railways.

A DcaMoincs Judge Says the AVhole-
sale Separations Must Ccano.
DF.S Moi.xns , la. , June 13. [ Special to the
Dr.E. | This city has become unenvlably con
spicuous for the laxity with which it has
treated ths marriage relation. Probably It
is not the city so much as the courts that
should bear the blame. Judge Kavanaugh
of the district court of this county has de
termined to call a halt In the rush forjjdi
vorces on the slight grounds of Incompati
bility and other insufficient reasons. Ho de
livered an opinion yesterday In refusing an
application for a decice which contains some
sound advice as well as some startling lig-
ures. Since Januarv 1 , Ibb7 , there have been
issued from the clerk's ollii-e 241 marrlago
licenses , but di.rini ; that time , according to
the judge , there have been pending in his
couit sixty-four applications for divorce.
Forty-two of those were commenced sluco
thu 1st of January. One-third at least of
the decrees granted are Immediately followed
by second marriages. HB declared : "This
conduct differs from the Utah system not In
principle but In method , " and publlcoplnion
will say ho was right. Sixty-four applica
tions tor divorce pending In live months In
ono court Is occasion enough for comment
and serious reflection.
An Insect Placuo.
TRENTON , Mo. , June 12. This town and
vicinity has been Infested for the past week
by an Insect , a description of which agrees
fully with the species of cantharldes , Span

pensary. The Insects come In perfect
swarms ana not only devour vegetation with
avidity but their vesicating power on the
human body Is equal fully to cantharldes.
Fully a thousand people in Trenton are at
present nurslnir blisters caused by this In
sect and lights in residences at night have
been almost abandoned for fear of attracting
the poisonous Insects.

ST. Louis , Juno 12. The followtnc Is the
full text of the letter of General W. T. Sher
man which was brlclly reported yesterday :
"Tho rumor of your trouble In St Louis
reached mo by telegraph , and has lost noth
ing by distance. I believe wo hero In New
York now understand the facts : that tno
Grand Army of the Republic holds Its next
annual encampment at St. Louis on the last
Wednesday of September , 15S7 ; that the
great fair of the valley of the Mississippi be

of St Louis have Invited many prominent
men to bo the guests of their city on the
accidental coincidence of these two Impor
tant events , among these tin ) president of our
common country , Grover Cleveland ,
his family and suite. The Grand
Army ot the Republic is composed
exclusively of men who served In the
army and navy of the union , to which Mr.
Cleveland docs not belong , and therefore he
cannot participate In any of Its proceedings ,
but the moment the Grand Army emerges
from Its hall of deliberation , It becomes , like
the Free1 Masons , Odd Fellows and other so
cieties of good men associated for a noble
purpose , a part of the general community ,
subject to the laws [ and usages of that com
"Mr. Clevelandthe president of the United
States , by a lair election of all our people , Is
cominandcr-ln-chlef of the army and navy of
.he United States , free to come and go wher
ever the jurisdiction of this our nation
overmncnt extends. Ho may visit any fort
or ship where the national nag will be low
ered to manifest respect for him and his
office , and should a foreign ship fall to do
lilm full honors , none will bo so quick to
resent an Insult as the members of the
Grand Army ot the Republic , who
perilled life and limb to make that Hag re
spected at homo and abroad. Thu Idea of
his being Insulted , much less endangered ,
should ho be on the stand alongside of our
commandpr-ln-chlet , General Falrchild ,
when the Grand Army is passing In review ,
seems to me monsttous. 1 think I know the
Iowa boys too well to think such a thing pos
sible. Bravo men are never ungcuerous.and
the Iowa soldiers wore bravo men. 1 know
It of knowledge acquired In battle , and
I will pledge my life that no soldier will dose
so unmanly an act , aud should Mr.Cleveland
accept the invitation , which I hope ho will ,
to attend the parade of the ( irand Army of
the republic at St. Louis , on the 23th of Sep
tember next. 1 will stand by his sldo or
march past In the ranks ot Hansom post , as
may bo ordered by General Falrchild.
" 1 notice with pain that the president's
action on certain pension bills enter Into
th 8 unhappy controvtwy. There were many
private bills and one of a general nature
which the president vetoed. The constitu
tion of the United States compels the presi
dent to approve or veto each separate bill as
U roaches film trom congress. If approved It
becomes a law : if vetoed It requires an In
creased majority ot concicss to pass It ; but
the president can only account for his judg
ment by his own conception of duty and to
ills God. We , as soldiers , must submit to
it , because It is the law. I do not believe this
government can ever bo too charitable to the
old soldiers , wounded , or In distress by age
und Intlrmltv. and had I been hear Mr. Cleve
land 1 would have ventured to advise him on
the general bill , but as to the private
cases 1 would have said : Charity enters
largely into all pensions , and when any
special bills have passed the ordeal ot the
committees of the snimte and the house , ap
prove them ; but on tlm eeneral bill exercise
your lull constitutional power. Honest men
dlifer widely on this question of pensions to
our old and feeble comrades. Wo all want
do what Is right , but differ as to the means.
All wo know Is that twenty odd years
after the civil war the government of the
United States , under republican and demo
cratic rule , pay out to'our old soldiers of the
union army about SfiO.000,000 a year and n
few thousand to the Mexican war veterans ,
regardless of locality , and not one cent to the
lebcls of the south whom we fought during
tuo civil war. We old soldiers of the
civil war have not yet just cause
to make an Issue on the question
of pensions to our Inlirm and wounded com
rades. 1 advise you to go right along , pre
pare the way for the Grand Army of the Re
public at Its session of Wpdnesday , Sep
tember 23 , lbS7 , at St Louis , and receive
them as they deserve as honored guests ;
also the president of the United States , with
such other honoicd cuests as may grace the
occasion. If any of our comrades feel hurt
at the association they can remain at home ,
but the sun will rise each morning , the sea
sons will follow each other In quick succes
sion , and the world , with Its myriads of people
ple , will go rl | it { don * nil the same. Let us
do rlsUtjts near as we knawtqw , < VU4 trust
tbefmuie to thahoys who look on us old
veterans as prodigies or as old fogies ,
lingering impertinent on the stage of life. I
believe I know you both perfectly well and
that you would sacrifice life rather than
honor ; therefore , whatever you do I will
stand by you same as to Rainwater Ken-
nard , Cobb aid Jerome Hill A'ho took the

An Englishman's Description of an
Audience With Krnnz Josef.
Vienna Dispatch to London Times : The
Englishmen who attended this morning's
audience at the palace obtained an insight
into the methods by which the emperor of
Austria retains such a strong hold over the
affections and loyalty of his subjects. The
ante-chamber of the audience room wns
crowded with generals and noblemen who
had como to thank his majesty for promo
tions or decorations. But mingling with
these were authors , inventors , professors ,
widows and 01 phans seeking pensions , and
a number of very poor men nnd women who
had petitions to present There are few
countries In which persons of this last
category would ever get a chance
of see ing their sovereign ; but In this
empire anybody who has 'any thing reason
able to ask of the emperor Is sure of an audi
ence. On one or two days a week his
majesty receives all corners who have ap
plied to bo received , and he receives than
alone. Every applicant takes his turn. A
master of the ceremonies opens a door , the
visitor walks In and finds himself face to
face with the emperor , who is unattended.
The door closes , and the petitioner may say
to the emperor what ho likes. There Is no
chamberlain or secretary to Intimidate him.
The emperor stands in a plainly furnished
study. In undress uniform , without a star or
grand cordon , and he greets everybody with
an ongngln ; smile and a good-natured ges
ture of the hand , which seems to say , "There
Is no ceremony here. Tell mo your business ,
and It 1 can help you 1 will. "
This Is a truly Imperial wav of receiving.
It Impresses everybody with the fathorllncas
of the emperor. Thu emperor of Austria has
a penetrating eye and quick , catching man
ner. By a glance he makes people feel at
homo , and by a word draws from them what
they have to say. Then hi- gives his own an
swer , straight out nnd fearlessly , but gener
ally with an acquleccinv smile , and whatever
he promises Is faithfully performed. There
is nothing petty or evasive in him. Ho is a
monarch who replies by "yes" or "no , " but
a'wajs with so much courtesy that the hum
blest of his subjects receives from him at departing -
parting the same bow as he vouchsafes to
ambassadors. A most lovable trait In him Is
that whenever he sees anybody nervous at

Only a Very Quiet Business ! Transacted in

St. 1'iuil's "New Departure " - Unimportant

Niw : YOIIK , Juno 12. ( Special Telegram
to the UKE.J Tim events of the week fur
nished some of the featuresof Inteiest iu share
speculation , but , excepting occasional spurts
of activity here and there on the llst.buslness
was very quiet , and , In fact , positively dull
at Intervals. Something approaching to a
sensation was created at the opening by the
unexpected announcement of the proposed
Issue of 510,000,000 additional St. Paul
common stock for the purchase and exten
sion of lines. As everyone knows , the policy
of the St. Paul directors has for a long time
been to Issue bonds for such purposes , and
the sudden dcpaituro from this established
practice naturally took the public by surprise.
It was a sreat card for the professional bears
and room traders generally , who were workIng -
Ing on the short side of the market , and the
most was niado of It to bring about a lower
range of values , an operation In which some
assistance was received from London , where
an unfavorable view was taken
of the proceedings. A heavy pres
sure was brought to bear acalust
the stock , and subsequently , in turn , upon a
number of other leading shares , and for sx
time a very feverish and unsettled leellng
prevailed , sometimes being Intensified by
sensational rumors regarding individuals
Gould having been reported verv 111 and Km-
peror William dead. The impression made
on prominent stocks ranged from 1 to 'i } {
points , which , under the circumstances , was
not wholly satisfactory to the bears , some
thing more having been expected from the
ellorts put forth. As the week drew to a
close it was evident that Insiders had sold
bt. Paul In advance , and they covered with
stock which the street afterward sold. In
fnct quite a little bull feeling was engineered
by Armour , who bought freely , and then
came out verv effectively In defense of the
new Issue. This started a general covering
movement all along the line , and the market
rallied , some stocks recovering ; partially ,
others wholly , and a few selling higher
than before. The lluctuatlons In the special
ties were confined within a much narrower
range than usual of late , and about the only
wide change was In St. Paul & Uuluth ,
which hrst broke 3M and then advanced CK
points , the rise havine been due to reports
that a compromise had been reached whereby
the common stockholders would eet
something to represent past earnings. The
position of individuals Is practically un
changed. To .sum up the situation in a few
words , it can bo said that there rs no cam
paign in sight for the Immediate future , only
such reactions and rallies as have occurred
ot late , and the public are anxiously waiting
for something or Homebody to lead the mar
ket out ot its present unsatisfactory condi
The movements in railroad bonds were far
less Important than of late. Thu changes in
the majority of Instances were conlincd
within narrower limits , and dealings were
comparatively light. Taken altogether , the
issues which declined early In the week sub
sequently-rallied , A tnct which Is partly duo
' i the Improvement of the share list.
Governments were lirni , on very moderate
Foreign exchanges weie heavy and lower
on account of very light Inquiry and tree of
ferings ot bankers' bills. In late transactions
a steadier tone prevailedand the actual rates
were a traction above the lowest touched.
The monetary situation was rasy.especlally
during the last half of the week , when rates
rarely got above r per cent. The future of
the market has been the subject of much dis
cussion and some definite announcement Is
eagerly looked for from Secretary Falrchild.
Thi ) project of paying a years' Interest on the
public debt In advance is not universally ap
proved and some objections are urged to It.
The government Is now paying quarterly
pensions , which amount to about S1-,000,00'J.
This money , however , Is paid out In small
amounts , and it takes somn time for It to get
around to the strt-ot , The July disburse
ments , now near at hand , will afford certain
relief , but what business men want to see Is
a considerable portion of the largo surplus In

The Carnivorous jJriito' Attacks a
Waiter at thn Illchcllen.
Sarah Bernhardt and her pot tiger cub
"Mlnette" had a royal time on Thursday
afternoon , at the Hotel Richelieu , which was
not so pleasant for the other parties con
cerned. After wrestling with thu startling
and artistic emotional ecstacles of "Fedora , "
at the Columbia , Mine , Ucrnhardt gathered
her feline pet In her long , graceful arms ,
and entering her carriage with Maurice
Gran , was driven to trio Hotel Richelieu.
Hero ehe had ordered for herself and party a
sumptuous dinner to vary the monotony of
western railroad tare , which was served
according to her lavish and exiiens
ivo tastes. "Mlnette , " the pet Infant
tiger , was not to bo overlooked ,
and the madame , calling the artistic "chef"
of the hotel to her side , ordered a special dish
of "consomme and poached eggs" for the
snarling little brute which was attached to
her wrist with a golden chain , and was gay-
Ing with luiugrv eyes nt the tempting viands
upon the daintily spread table. The accom
modating "chef , " to win the favor of his Il
lustrious countrywoman , prepared the "con
somme" in most delicate fashion , and with
his own hands , an honor he seldom vouch
safes to the wealthy natrons of the Michigan
avenue hostelry. While tills dish was In
preparation the young tiger , with protruding
tongue and snapping eyes , could hardly bo
restrained from mounting the table and de
vouring the unpronounceable dishes upon
which the madame and her party were Bayly
feasting. When the "consomme" appeared In
a silver tureen , berne by a trembling and
awe-stricken waiter , named Frank Lugcl-
man , tne hungry young tiger made a spring
and fastened bis teeth in the arm of the ter
rified attendant which caused him to utter
a howl of agony and hastily deposit his as
sailant's dinner on the richly-carpeted floor.
This llttlo episode , artistic In Its natural
gracefulness and emotional In Its painful
realization of suffering , diverted the atten
tion of the madame for a moment but findIng -
Ing her pet uninjured , she laughingly re
sumed her repast The bitten waiter rushed
from the room , and In a short time his
wound became so painful that ho wns put
to bed and a summoned to at
tend him , anil ycsteiday be was un
able to perform his duties Thinking to
pacify the madam. Hugo Xicman , the head
waiter gallantly offered to take clmrge of
Sarah's amiable pet , and as he icached out
his hand to take the chain , a warning "take
care , " In madam's most dramatic tones , was
heard , and the terrified Hugo stepped back
just In time to escape the sharp teeth of the
snarling animal. This was enough
menagerie for ouo afternoon , and no ono
could l > i Induced to offer any further civili
ties to angry "Minotle. " When train time
arrived Sarah gathered up her volumlnlous
wraps and fondly caressing her delightful ,
though somewhat carnivorous pet , left the
hotel and was driven to thn depot without as
much as an Inquiry after thu welfare
ot the poor fellow who wss groaning with
pain in another part of the holuU It b said
that X.oelman's ; lujiirles'are quite suriousand

\ Desperate Affray at a Picnic Near
Union town , N. J.
Jr.nsKY CITY , Juno 1'J. A desperate-affray
took place this afternoon at Conrad Schnei
der's Oak Cliff park , Uniontown , N. J. It
was engaged for the day by the socialists ,
who assembled about 2,000 strong to hear ad
dresses by Most nnd his co-laborer , Uraun-
schwelg. The park was decorated ami < i
a rgo quantity of beer was tapped. Each of
the socialists .Invested 23 cents In a
ticket which admitted them to the
grounds and entitled them to sK
glasses of beer. Thu proceeds ot the picnic ,
It was announced , wore to be used to obtain
n new trial for the condemned anarchists in
Chicago. Admission was denied to all sus
pected of being reporters or detectives. They
enjoyed themselves unmolested until soon
after noon , when a disturbance occuricd.
The row was caused by Hcrnnrd Wiun. n
laborer , who attempted to pass through the
woods , us was his custom. He was seized by
several of the socialists and assaulted when
ho declined to answer their Inquiries. Wlnn
managed to break away and escaped , hater
In the afternoon a game of base ball was
commenced on thn adjoinlnc grounds by the
Monitor club , ot New York City , and a nluo
Irom Danbury. Conn. Several hundred men
and boys were witnessing the game. When
Wlnn re tinned to the picnic giounds he
scaled the fence , but had scarcely done so
when the socialists , many of whom wore
armed with clubs , swarmed around him.
Winn drew a revolver , but was disarmed
before he could use It and was horribly
beaten. When his assailants tnoiiirlit that
ho had been sutllclently punished they hurled
him bodily over the fence. William P.
Willburgpr , of th Hoboken police , tried to
rescue Wlnn , but was himself assaulted ,
The outcries attracted the attention of the
crowd on the base ball grounds , and they
began hurling stones at the picnickers. A
general mrlco ensued , during which a do/en
or more pistol shots wore tired. Constable
Jackson was struck in the arm , nnd a boy ,
whose name was not learned , had two lingers
shot off. Several of the socialists wore
struck with stones , and pandemonium
reigned. vVlllburgcr was dragged by the excited -
cited throng of socialists , who yelled "Hang
him , " and similar cries. While the uproar
was at Its height , Justice of the Peace
Walker and three constables appeared. The
justice was admitted , but the constables were
compelled to remain outside the gates. An
excited throng surrounded and threatened
them. The justice , alter a long parley , suc
ceeded in securing Willburger's release. Ho
presented a trluhtfnl appearance. His head
was cut open In three places and ho was
covered with blood. Constable Patrick
Tlmmany of Wechawkon , was also beaten
and several other men were roughly handled.
Ho Delivers It Whllo the Authorities
Are hooking For Him.
Duni.tK , Juno 12. In consequence of the
government's proclamation forbidding the
meeting announced to bo held at Dodykn to
day , an extra military torce was drafted into
service to enable the authorities to enforce the
proclamation. Michael Davltt eluded the
authorities , however , and addressed 5,000
persons at Fcaklo while the authorities were
searching for him. Ho afterwards spoke at
Scarltf. He asserted the people's right of
meeting In public , and said It the people
were aimed they could deal with the mack-
coated burglar biigada as they deserved.
In his speech at Scarlff , Davltt denied hav
ing counselled uny further resort to extreme
violence. He had only maintained that It
would be cowardly now to nhow ra
tional resistance. He expected thin would
be the last meeting which he would have a
chance to address before the coercion act
would again Indulge him with the luxuries
of a prison plunk bed. Before going into po
litical retirement for six months ho would
give them this ndvico : "Boycott the inquisi
tion causes ot thn coercion act nnd welcome
Imprisonment rather than assist the govern
ment to make the act operative. "

was concluded after some discussion , to ,
await the coming of Uulfnlo 1)111 , wno waa

to then contrive that a hostile meeting should
occur between them.
In course of time HulTalo Hill appeared In
