I _ R WASHINGTON , Juno 29. [ Special Tele-
I B gram to the BEK. | Congressman Gros-
' - vcnor , of Ohio , said to-day , In an Interview :
B "The attempt to return the Hags aroused a
I B feeling such as has not been known slnco
Stimterwas fired upon. It will RO into the
Wcampaign and will hurt Cleveland and his
k party , and theru will bo no bloody shirt
F about It , either. The Grand Army Is moro
m active now than it has been for years. There
I B are to be grand patriotic demonstrations all
i over the country on the Fouith of July , and
the attempt to return the Hags will bo ccn-
surcd and denounced In the sueeches on
H > nearly every occasion. It Is the return to
W doctrines of states rights Calhoun teach-
B ins * doctrines that were stamped as fatso In
battle , that wo protest against. There In an-
H other thing. I assume the president Is golnicto
do as all the papers say , that is appoint
Mr. Lamar upon the supreme bench. To appoint -
point him upon the supreme bench to con-
H struo the constitution and decide upon the
legislation of congrnss will do Mr. Cleveland -
land great political harm. There may not be
all at once such a loud cry against U as the
flax Incident provoked , but it will bo Just as
serious In Its effects. Lamar represents the
dry bones ot democratic bourbonlsin the
dead past. Ills convictions are the samnas
before the surrender. Ho places upon the
constitution the same construction the con
s'federate states fought for. lie is the old
south with nil the old ideas. To appoint
f him will bo no encouragement to tlio south.
K A young man with progressive Ideas
should bo chosen. It such a man
as Howell E. Jackson was appointed
K there would bo no room for
i criticism. If an extra session Is called It
ft will do the democrats great Injury. As to
w ) the tariff I do not know what they can do.
ff I hear Indirectly that Ilandall claims as much
f strength as ho had before. I do not know
; what lie moans by that , 1 suppose , however ,
i that ho muans as great strength In proportion
L to the majority of fits party. Mr. liandall Is
I practically a republican. Upon all matters
I. of principle ho agrees with us. Ho only
stays In thu democratic party because It suits
E bpttor to do so. Ho defends the democratic
I party In speeches on the floor of the house
I and In campaigns and denounces the repub-
llcatis as a party. But ho thinks and votes
| with us upon all great Issues that
distinguishes the parties. Now this session
| - I think he should follow us. We will not
m. kill him. If hols golnir to join In the light
for protection let him come anil march In the
. rear of our line , recognizing the leadership
of Keed , McKlnley , and the rest of our Icad-
mt ers , The republicans want to reduce the
V < revenue and tney are ready to do so accordIng -
Ing to their own plans. Sherman is In
-t favor of revenue reduction. Ho has saia so
, repeatedly and said how he would do U. Ho
K may say something more on the subject
K < when the senate meets. 1 do not know Just
v What his Intentions are. "
f Representative Payson Talks.
f WASHINGTON , June29. [ Special Telegram
K to the BKE. ] Uoprcsentatlvo Payson , ot
p Illinois , Is In the city on a mission in con-
b nectlon with the restoration of the so-called
"Indemnity" lands to settlement Monday
I and to-day were the days set by the Interior
I department for the railroads to show cause
n why these "Indemnity" lands should not be
if opened to settlement , and Mr. Payson Is
'i here to glvo the department the benefit
f ot his knowledge upon the subject and to
' help tight the railroads. Ho says ho Is per
fectly satisfied with the way that land mat
ters are being handled by the adralulstr.v
| tlon. He Is confident that the Indemnity
t lands will be reopened to settlement , and
[ * this , together with tlio forfeiture , will niako
f about 75,000,000 acres of land restored to the
I < public domain. Ho believes that Clevo-
V land will bo ronomlnated. but that
tUe flag business is going to do
him harm. It was a very foolish
and unaccountable action and the sentiment
that It affronted Is strong. It-will lose him
many soldier votes. In regard to the repub
lican candidates he said : "It Is too soon to
say , perhaps. I do not much think It will bo
either Sherman or Blame. Sherman's
friends tried to make a boom for him on the
occasion of his visit to Illinois , but they
failed at this. He got such a reception as
would naturally be given to a republican
senator of his distinguished ability In- the
capital of a republican state , where
ft republican legislature was in
se&slon , but It amounted to
nothing more than this. Ills speech on that
occasion you of course have read , and It has
been more or less criticised. 1 think , per
haps. It would have been better if ho had re
peated his Nashville speech on this occasion.
That was the best speech. 1 think , that he
has ever made. On the other hand , 1 some-
bow cannot think that Blalno will be elected. .
1 think possibly Allison will be the most
talked or man at the next republican con-
vontion. " Uo thought an extra session nec
essary and would bo called.

WASHINGTON , Juno 29. [ Special Tel
egram to the BKK. I The special committee
appointed by President Cleveland last week ,
during the conference in Washington of
local clvll'sorvlco officers from leading cities ,
to suggest modifications m the civil service
rules , finished tholr work 111 Now ifork yes
terday. It was decided not recommend any
change In the form of application by candi
dates , but to recommend that hereafter all
examination papers be marked in Washing
ton and that the marking be done by a board
of lit teen members made up as follows :
Seven chosen from the departments
of the government at Washing
ton , one each from the custom
houses and postofflcos of Now York and
Boston , one trom the Philadelphia custom
house and one each from the postofllces of
Baltimore , St Louis and Chicago. The
object In view in having all examination
papers marked by a central board Is to do
away with all opportunity for suspicion of
unfairness , such M obtains in certain locali
ties under the present local board system ,
and which tends to neutralize the objects
sought for under the civil service law.

Niw VOHK , Juno 29. [ Special Telojjramto
thu BIK.J : In regard to the sale of the block
60,000 shares of Manhattan Elevated railway
stock by Cyrus W. Field to Jay Gould , the
Times says : Jay Gould and Unssell Sago
are triumphant. Cyrus \V. fluid's scalp has
been taken. Wall street has a now victory
to celebrate and aboriginal savazory is once
more discounted by the stock exchange.
Field mailo a br.wo light , but ho did not real
ize until the end came that ho was to bo
struck down In the very house of his
friends. Ho knows a good many things now
that ho didn't evan dream of a week ago.
Ho has learned thu value of professed friend
ship and declared partnership. Uo has soon
ivhat dollars and cents have to do with loy-
Ity. Ho discovers how cheap is duplicity
ml double dealing and downright betrayal.
His feet have gene patter , patter , patter , just
as Deacon Sage prophesied they wore bound
, o go when the tirao was rlpo for the Sago
and Gould onslaught. On information com-
ng direct from Jay Gould and Itus-tell Sago ,
he Times chronicled the fact last week that
.hat distinguished twain had Field's finan
cial discomfiture in vlow when they precl-
patcd what amounted to a stock exchange
panic , by schemes that enabled
them to got n temporary corner
on money. Men of consequence saw through
thu Gould-Sue tactics early in the game ,
The terrltied tumbling that was givuu Man
hattan stock settled all questions as to the
purpose of the precious pair , and the con
victions thus formed were made indisputable
ivlien early in the panicky time of Fiiday ,
whllo Manhattan was stumping headlong
iown over 40 points , one of Field's most pro
minent personal brokers had to go begging
around the street for an extension on his
contracts. No hint ot this has hitherto been
made public. Had It baon announced dur
ing the troublous scones of thu stock ex
change , a sweeping panic could not have
been staved. But the extension petitioned
for was given , the disaster was prevented ,
and the man who was merciful
and generous at that moment was
a man whom Cyrus W. Field has
attacked ruthlessly. The generosity of im
enemy kept oil a panic then , just as thrusts
of triends and partners now accomplish em
barrassment and sack him of tearful spollR.
There is moro than one kind of man In Wall
street. Early yesterday morning Wall streut
bcean to bloom out with stoiius corrobora
tive of all that the Times had outlined , and
before noon the Iloatinj ; rumors hud
crystalized into the generally ac
cented belief that Field had been
obliged to seek Gould's favor ,
swapping a big lot of Manhattan stock for
needed money. Filty thousand shares of
stock. It was agreed , had been given up by
Field. The first quoted price was 8135 a
share , but that rate was not long accepted ,
and before business closed for the day It gen
erally passed on the stock exchange us an un
disputed fact that Gould had been obliged to
pay only S'JO a share for the 33,000.000 he had
taken. Some vury strenuous efforts wcro
made to disguise the transactions , but before
the day was over nobody presumed to deny
any ot thu main facts.
What are Mr. Fluid's losses ? That Is
something that nobody but himself can
figure out. A goo ; ' , deal of Field's stock cost
him very little. Ho picked it up hall a dozen
years ago when , with Sago and Gould , ho
carried a buar campaign to such an unscrupu
lous extent that tha most legitimate Investors
were frightened out of their stock at great
saciilices. But during tliu last two or three
yroirs , since the stock wes ballooned away up
10 and 'M and 50 and 75 points above par
ho lias been obliged to take
on a big additional burden of the
stock at the inflated prlco In
order to keep thu quotations safe and steady ,
and It Is hardly likely that his average prlco
fell any under par. Sago for certain and
Gould undoubtedly have salted him with
stock at high prices. Kussell Sage , for in
stance sleek , mild-mannered Presbyterian
elder that ho is-sold out on Cyrus over 2,500
shares of stock In ono lot two or three
months ago at about 158 , and to deceive Cvrus
Into the Idea that ho was playing fair , Elder
Saga has been borrowing that amount of
stock over slnco rather than run the risk of
detection by giving up the shares that stand
In his own name.
Mr. Sago says now : "Cyrus still has some
money lett. It is all wrong to report that ho
Is dead broke. "
If Mr. Field llnds that his surplus Is In any
way burdensome , however , he can tiud Mr.
Sao ; still In business at thu old stand.
IPressI Wall street was completely mvs-
tlncd at tbo developments In Manhattan
stock to-day. The transfer so far ns made
known , was of Field's third In the 150,000
share pool , and the price , Gould to-day told
a friend , was $125 per share. Field is still
believed to hold nearly 80,000 shares , and it
was reported that euoiuh of this would be
taken by Gould to five- him absolute control
of the property. The announcement of the
deal was tollowed by numerous rumors re
garding Western Union and Baltimore &
Ohio. It was said that Gould had
agreed to take the Baltimore & Ohio
telegraph system , form a nnw company ,
and place Austin Corbln In control. Corbln
ridicules the story , but the talk was ac
companied by heavy buying orders and the
stock advanced over 4 per cent on the
strength developed by it. Gould is also said
to have taken up 60,000 shares of Heading
and brokers are unanimous in the opinion
that moie deals aie forthcoming. New Eng
land came in tor its share of rumors and ne
gotiations are said to bo penulnc by which it
will entt-r Nuw York over the Manhattan
tracks. The story that Henry Hart had sold
the most ot his Pacilic Mall was continued
to-day by the delivery of a great many cer
tificates In his namn. It is believed he no
longer has control.

Irst time In the history of our jurisprudence
when a man had be ; u made to face the
charge of giving a brif o. Both to give and
ccclvo bribes were Ci lines. The court read
ho law on bribery \ -id went on to say that
ho only direct evid nco that money had
> een given was that o , o UoLacy had given
nonoy. It Is not necemry that the person
charged glvo the money with his own hand.

JoLacoy rocewod the money from Rich-
nond and Richmond again from Sharpe ,
lien Sharp Is guilty.If Sharp had guilty
cnowledgo and atdcu or abetted In any way ,
.hen ho Is guilty. Judge Barrett believed It
tad been clearly shown that FullgratI was
> rlbed. If ths jury believed DoLacoy bribed
ilm with 810,000 , then the jury must ask who
jribod loLacoy. Any person who was bo-
itnd DuLacoy In the 'matter was as guilty.
The judge reviewed the contributory evi
dence of Sharp and the lobby work at
Albany to get Mho railroad bill
passed , and having succeeded , nt once
set to work to get the Broadway franchise.
The court added : "Ills anxiety caused him
to do any thing to frustrate his opponents In
obtaining the benefits of his efforts. This
was Sharp's motive. He had spent a iifo-
tlmo In the hope of material reward. Ho was
ready to do anything to obtain that reward.
This was a matter of life and death to .ho
Seventh avenue road , and as a director ho
had a motive , while he was to obtain a per
sonal reward In bonds , which were to be
guaranteed. " The judge then took up the
story of the Issuance of 850.000 worth of
bonds ana thu disposition ot the money ,
which lias boon fully recounted In the
past evidence. Ho told the jury that
It thev had the evidence and believed
that Kerr and Forshay used this
as a corruption fund without the
knowledge- Sharp ; they should acquit
Sharp. There Is abundant evidence that
tliero were falsllled entries by Sharp himself.
The jury must determine whether Sharp had
connection with "lixilig" the aldermen , or
whether his use of that expression was an
Innocent one. The j ml 1:0 further instructed
the Jury that they miwt not bo influenced by
the prisoner's rt''O or Infirmity , nor by the
fact that he did not tnko the stand In his
own defense. The jury then retired , and after
an absence of thhteen mlnutps returned with
a verdict of guilty , with n recommendation
to mercy. The aged prisoner's head dropped
and ho was removed to the jail. Sentence.

Herb Rothery , Miller's backer , yesterday
wrote to Tommy Warren to the effect that ho
would bo witling to oiler him two-thirds of
the $500 purse , or as much as that of the
tickets sold , to show him that he can find a
man hero to meet him. Those are terms
which Warren can scarcely afford to decline
If he means business. Another proposition
of Mr. Rothery was that the light talte place
within fifty miles of Omaha. This would
enable It probably to take place In Iowa , or
at no great distance from this city.

Cable Special to the BEK. | I learn from
a reliable source that the emperor
will leave for Ems next Wednesday. His
stay there will probably bo shortened to a

strength , the emperor will certainly go to
Gastein , stopping as usual en route several
days with hls'daushter , thu grand duchess of
Baden , In the Island of Malnau. The meet

the emperor gains strength bio-.vly.
The Crown I'rlnco's Throat.
LONDON , Juno 29. The British Medical
Journal savs : Dr. Mackenzie has removed
almost all the fungus growth that remained
in the throat of the German crown prince
when ho left home. The Journal adds ,
however , that since the last operation the
prince has caught a severe cold , the result
of which Is that his charynx and larynx arc
both acutely congested , the parts In the vi
cinity of the growth being less effected than
others. Local swelling has caused some dif
ficulty In swallowing but It is hoped that this
will soon disappear. The case at present re
quires the greatest care and will require It
for several weeks , in the meantime the sur
gical operations on the prince's throat will be
suspended. Mackenzie Is not troubled at the
