1'AiiiH ( via Havre ) , July 8 , [ New York
Herald Cable-Special to the HIK. : | General
Doulanger to-day had a veritable ovation.
He passed the afternoon lu his room , No.
2-18 Hotel du Louvre , writing letters and
arranging his private affairs before leaving
Paris for Clermont Ferrnnt to take command
of the Thirteenth army corps. As early as
half past 0 crowds gathered In front of the
hotel shouting "Vivo Uoulanger , Vivo Honl-
anger , " and slnidne tbo famous air , "Kn
lllvenant do la Uevue. " At 7:15 : the general ,
accompanied by two stalf officers , stepped
Into an open cab and drove to the Garo do
Lyon. The cheerlnc was tremendous. The
general , who was dressed In a Dlack cutaway
coat , dark brown trousers , white and black
checked cravat , a new shlnv stovepipe hat ,
bowed to the crowd every few seconds. Aa
the cab , which was , by the way , a rather
shabby one and bore the number 2.19S ,
reached the Hotel de Vllle , a young
cavrocho , In a white blouse , Jumped
up behind , waved a red paper
banner bearing the words , " 11 Hov
111 Kevlendra. " shouted "Vive Houlanger. "
The crowds at the corners of the streets sang
the Marseillaise and a few cries of "A bas
Grovy ; a baa les Prusslons" wcro heard.
When the cab reached the Hare de Lyons It
was accompanied by over a thousand of the
general's zealous admirers , half a dozen of
whom wcro perched on the axles and behind
the cab like crows. The general himself
looked as If bored to death. At 8 o'clock
the cab pulled up at the enhance to the sta
tion , the general Jumped out and , almost
mobbed by the populace , managed to get
through the passage outsldo the platform
where an ordinary light stoker express train
was awaiting him.
Hut at this moment one of the most 10-
markablo scenes that ever occurred tn Paris
took place. 1 stood on the plattorm of the
rear carriage reserved for the general. A
strange buzzing and rumbling nolso like
that of an earthquake was heard. Then
came a crash of falling railings , and In an
instant a perfect wave of humanity burst
Into tlio vast stationwearing red ribbons with
the motto " 11 Hevlendra. " A hundred popular
prints ot the idolized warrior In full war
paint moved In and among the crowds. I
noticed nil sorts of people , from solid bank
ing cleiks to tbo hyena-like faces of an
archists from Uellcvlllo. Show keepers and
their wives or mlsstresses were theio , na
were hundreds of noisy , shrill-voiced stud
ents from the Latin quaiter. Nearly all
wore white btraw hats , and as they swarmed
Into the station through the doors and windows
dews , seemed like the Incoming of a flood
tldo of foam-crostcd waves.
The 8 o'clock express for Genoa managed
to get safely out of tha station , but In less
than ton minuted 5,000 people had taken com
plete possession ot everything. Ono of the
most dangerous lircbrands of Europe , Paul
do Koulcdo , dressed lu a Ionic groy coat ,
stovepipe bat reddish Henri Quatrc , had
fierce , glilleilng eyes , made a tiger-llko
bound train a pile of trunks on thn
platform and landed on the steps
of lioulangcr's compartment Tricolor
flags were waved nnd Do llouledo
pronounced ono of his most impassioned
speeches , which was received with deafening
cheers , lint I must say that although I stood
within twelve jardg of him , the only words
of his oration I could catch wore "France , "
"the Ficnch army , " "tho lost princes , " and
"Vivo Uoutaugor. " The crowd then sang
the Marsolllase nnd shouted "Vivo la
Llglro. " Boulauger ! drew back Into
tlio further corner of his compartment.
The sweat rolled down his face and ho looked
tired out and Intensely bored. The air was
perfectly stilling. Ten policemen tried to
keep the crowd from Jamming themselves
n to the windows of the comnartmcnt. Hun-
difdH of youngsters clnmberea up , heaven
only knows how , on top of the train nnd
began dancing the can-can and shouting and
nhrickluK like wild Indians. The people
seemed to spilng up from the erotind.
Men and women got jammed between
the carriages , and frantic students took
possession of the locomotive , decked
nil out with flags and laurel
wreathes , and gummed Into its crlm Iron
Bides portraits ot lloulangor , surmounted by
the watch word " 11 Kovlludm. " An oUh-
teen-year-olil gauorocha with handsome
Gypsy features made tremendous lilts by
climbing up the smokestack , standing on
ono leg , then turning a summersault nnd
landing on top ot tbo boiler. Thou ho
jumped up , pulled a huge pleco of chalk
from his pocket and wrote on the locomotive
the following inscription : "Vivo Buulan-
ier : ; a bas Gievy ; vlvl da guerra ; n bas
les Prusslon , a bas les ministers ,
a bas Forron ; a baa Kerry ;
n baa lo government" At leabt two hundred
people were wedged on the track In front ol
the locomotive , that stood pulling away Its
waste steam and ready to stait off. Hut thl
would ha\e Imolved the sacrifice ot human
llfo far exceeding an > thlu < achieved by tha
Juggernaut car. It was now half past U ,
General lioulangcr and his staff were nearly
sullocated. The windows of tlio compart
me tit were chocked up by dozens ol
pairs of Ions dangling from th <
roof ot the carriage. Shouts resounded on
all hides , "Don't let him leave Paris , "
nnd an attempt was made to tear up the ralli
In front of the locomotive. The situation
seemed desucrate. Scores of anarchist * cried ,
"AlElysee , a bns Grevy. " General Uou-
Inncer poked hU head , streaming with sweat
out of the window , aua motioned with hh
liund for the crowd to remain silent A hap
pily inspired band of .students nt this mo
ment turned thn ugly threats Into laiightei
by appearing with large glass pitchers o
beer , which they , after n frantic charge
managed to bear to the door of UoulatigerV
compartment. The general smiled am
emptied ono pitcher ot beer n
a single draught His staff ofllcrn
Rlworbed the contents of the other pitchers
It was now a quvter to 10 and the trail
Reomea no uonrer getting under way than I
did an hour and a quarter ago. Suddonl )
General Uoulanzcr put his head out of tlu
window again and Implored the crowd to tw
silent Then his Rtaft officer , with a loud
stirring , martial voice , shout * ! , "In the In
terests of Franco and In the interests ot tin
republic , will you lot ( J uii-rM licit
langer get out of hi ) { rsla am
KCt Into A special carrU'ju furthc ,
forward. " The , crowds shouted "jes , yes ,
we will. " In an Instant the gcnonl. fol
lowed by tils staff , got cut of his cotupart
uient and was literally carried by the eiowdj
tntilumph to another carriage , to whtu !
ipeclat loromotye ! was attached alwit i
luudied yards culsldo tliot KUtiau tul a
five minutes before 10 the general's carriage
was able to start.
The scene was perfectly Indlscrlbablo.
Thousands of voices sang the Marselllals ,
alternated witli "Ulvenant do la llovuo. "
Do/ens of people were Injured by being
jammed Into trains and Iron parts.
Hundreds of luckless travelers and
distracted females sat on their baggage In
utter despair. The crowd held for two
hours complete possession of the cntiro sta
tion. At 10 o'clock the mob broke up , and
although the leaders waved flags and shouted
"Down with the ministry , " "Down with
Grevy , " "To thu Elysee palace , " It gradually
melted away enrouto toward the Latin qutvr-
tler and Belleville ,
I afterwards drove pist the Elysee palace ,
President Grcvv's residence , which is luckily
about four miles distant from Garo do Lyons.
1 found all quiet the lights out , but the
guards doubled. The same wise precaution
of thu German
was taken In the neighborhood

The Crimes Illll Goes ThrouKh By a
IJlR Mujorlty.
Loxnox , July 8. Lord Hartlnston In the
commons this aftcinoon , continuing Uio do-
uato on tlio Irish crimes bill , said ho recog
nized that eveiy portion of the majority bup-
porting the measure must bear Us full onus
of responsibility for what had been done.
So long as the liberal-unionists weru sup
ported by the thinking and cultured classes
of England they would continue wltli conll-
denco in their course. "For , " said ho ,
"surely the masses cannot have a better
knowledge than tlm educated classes ot the
relations between England and Ireland. "
John Ulllon said ho was prepared to loyally
acknowledge the duty of the Irish member to
the empire , but ho held their lirst duty was to
the welfare and liberty of the Irish people.
Ills party represented the vast , overwhelm-
liu majority of people whose fortune the
bill affected , and those who contended that
the bill of the majority ought to prevail
ought not to assist in passintr the
measure. The opinion of no civilized
country in the woild was of moro value
to Intelligent Englishmen than that
of America. It was absurd to assert that
line-tenths ot the educated people of Amer-
-Ca were not on the side of Ireland. Un
questionably the whole American press was
on their side. Ho maintained thatO'Urion's
ulsslon had been a conspicuous success both
n the United States and Canada.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt criticized the
bill at length and in conclusion said tliat
every town nnd village in the kluirdom
should understand that the government ro-
tused to Irish tenants that protection from
an old oppression , against combinations
which they granted trades unions.
Goschen then rose to speak , whereupon
the Parnellites left the house in a body.
( ioschen t > ald the Kovornmont's contention
was , not that the bill was justified be
cause otncis as diastic had been
passed , but that It was necessary.
Goscher denied that the literature ot the civ
ilized world condemned the government's
policy. The Ameiicans In their strungle lor
the maintenance of the union were not in-
luoncod by thu opinions of English states-
inon.andit the Ameiican opinion was against
continuance of thu union ot England and
Irelaud , which ho did not believe the
unionists would not bo influenced
by that opiniou in their defenses of so treat
a clause. Kedinond concluded the debate
amid signs of impatience.
At the eonslusion of the debate the bill
passed the thlid reading 319 to ! 2 < W. 1 ho
announcement of the vote was received with
cheers and counter cheers.
The Distinguished American Shut
Out of a Keccption.
Emxtiuno , July 8. The freedom of the
city was conferred upon Andrew Catnegle
to-day In recognition of his gift to the city ot
5250,000 with which to provide n public li
brary. The ceremony took place In the coun
cil chamber. James G. Blalno was invited to
bo present , and went to the city hall and at
tempted to make h's ' way Into the chamber ,
but was unable to do so on account of the
Tlicro is a great deal of iudUuatiou rnanl-
foskullover the failure ot Blalno to obtain ad
mission to thu council chamber to-day during
the presenattlon of tbo freedom of
the city to Carnegie. Now that
it Is known It appeals that the oc
currence was biought about by official lack
ottaet. Illaino and Senator Halo arrived
halt and hour late. All the approaches to
tlio council chamber were crowded anil the
visitors had a hard time reaching the cham
ber door. When they got there they found
they were without tickets. The Janitor did
not know them and would not them.
Cainegie was at the tlmo dellveinu' ills ad-
dross. Ulaluosent n messenger to the pio-
vest stating the situation. The provost
waited until Carnegie finished his address
before sending orders for tlio admission of
tbo distinguished Americans , lly this time
both Blaine and Halo became disgusted and
retired. Carnegie. , when ho learned what
had happened , became \ery anury and would
scarcely listen to the provost'a apologies.
The workmen ot this city to-night presented
Carneu'lo with an address welcoming him to
Edinburgh and thanking him for hisuiftof
the library to them. Blaine and Mis. Car-
were present.

A Clerk's Crookedness.
WASHI.NOTON , July 8. Something of a
ensatlon was created In the treasury do-
lartmont this afternoon by the discovery
hat a trusted olllclal In the department has
> ecn cuilty of a systematic attempt to do-
raud the government. The ollicer was ar-
ested at Wllkes-barrc , Pa. , yesterday after-
iLon. as ho was obout to take thu train for
Washington , and his dismissal from the scr-
Ice VNas ordered by Secretary Falrclilld tills
afternoon. His name is Oscar J. Harvey ,
and ho has been employed in the department
incoJune , 1S35 , when he was appointed
chief of thu horse claims division of tlio third
auditor's olllce. It was while ho held this
lobltion tliat ho perpetrated the frauds with
vlilch ho Is now charged. On thoM
M of Juno last ho was trans-
erred to the head of a division
n the second comptroller's ollleo ; a division
which has charge of claims of tlm same na-
lire as those In the division which he had
iibt left. Austin 11. Drown , of Indiana-
polls , succeeded Harvey as chief of horbo
claims , and soon atter ho took charge ha dis
covered the frauds of which his predecessor
tad been cuilty. These consisted of the
lassako of forty-three tiiuiduletit claims for
lorses , aggregating 59,200 , and the prepara-
tian ot money additional cases of n .similar
nature , which were under consideration In
he olllce. In moat cases the claims are for
lorscs lost during the late war
ind are presented in the rmmo
of officers ot I'ennovlvanla and New
Jersev regiments. All of these cases ap-
leaied to have been prosecuted by "W.V. .
IVynti , " lifbt of I'liiladelphia , and then of
Washington , and the services ot "J. U. Man-
lord , " notary public , In Philadelphia ,
ivere called into requisition in
Connection with the necessary allidavits.
I'ho work Involved the stealing of
numerous Incriminating papers from thoiiles
of the department. In thirtun claims It was
found that the signatures , Involving tlio
names ot thlrty-elulit ollleers , were forgeries ,
jubscquently it was found that the second
auditors name lias been forged in thu cer-
ilieates received from tliat oftlce , an.t also
that nouo of the Pennsylvania anil Now
Jersey cases In \ \ liicliVvnn was attorney
were entered on tlio records of that ollice.
The claims which bad been allowed were
then overhauled , and In almost every in
stance it was found that the second auditors
certificate as to the slgnatuies had been ab
stracted together with other papers. Tlio
stamp of the mall room , In the third auditor's
ofllce , and tlio stamp ot the horse claims di
vision had been torccd and the dutes ar
ranged so as to bring them within tlio limita
tion fixed lor tlio tilinc of tliChU claims. The
htamp of the quartermaster general's
otlico was also forged. Drafts were
reeularlv issued , and an examination of such
as had been returned as paid shows that
Harvey and Wynn are one and tlio same per
son , and that although the drafts weie drawn
in tavor of the claimants , the money , with
ono or two exceptions , went directly to
Harvey or some ot Ills inlatlves. He had se-
cuied their payment by forging the signa
ture of the payee and then endorslni : the draft
witti Ills own name. Monfoit , the Philadel
phia notary public , like Wynn , tlio attorney ,
was found 10 be a myth. Most of the nota
ries and persons named In the claims are un
known to tlio department. In addition
to the forty-tnreo cases passed
there have been ISO similar cases
adjusted aegregatlng ? ! .0,000 , and there are
still pending and unadjusted sixty-eight
cases amounting to 510,000 , making a total ot
101 fraudulent cases which niUht eventually
have been paid but for this discovery. Har
vey was biought to this city by officers of the
secret service who had kept him under sur-
veilanco since lie was hrst .suspected. Ho
asked to sco tbu secretary , and when ho was
informed of the evidence acalnst him , broke
down completely ami unilu a lull confession
of his guilt.
ScninUnnnl Contcitq.
WAPUINOTO.V , July 8. [ Special Telegram
to the UIE.J : The reports that Senator
Hearst , of California , Is not to bo allowed tn
take ills seat without a contest , together with
the fact that there will bo a strngu'lo also be
fore the West Virginia and Indiana sena-
torships are settled , causes uneasiness among
the demociatlc politicians , who had counted
on celling Hictdleberger , of Virginia , tci
abandon the lebublican side of the chamber.
With Illddlcherger voting with them tlu
democrats would tie the republicans , nnd tin
latter would have trouble In retaining con
trol of the senate , but it two or three seats
remain vacant for a season , or until eveiy-
thing Is under way lor the session , there will
be no hope for any caln for the democrat ;
with or without Itlddleberger. The opinion
has been expressed that the senators holding
the certificates will , as Is the custom In the
house of representatives , bo allowed
to takn their respective beats
pending a decision of the contest , bill
such Is not the case. The senators are noi
allowed to take any part in tlio proceeding
it their ciedontlals are questioned until the
matter has been examined into by the com
mittee on privileges and elections , and tin
senate comes to a decision touching the rec
ommendations of the committee's report ,
Democratic politicians nro doing their lies !

election did cost him a pile of money
ho was determined to " < cratch his name a1
senator. " In the West Viiglnlacasetho lulu

of that party are afraid the light will be con

Attorney Usher Kxplnlns Certain
ltcm < * to the V. ! > . CnimiitHHloii.
KANSAS CITY , July 8. Tha Paciiic rail-
vay commission to-day examined at great
encth Judge J. I * . Usher , the attorney of the
Cansas Pacific railway , and now one of the
Attorneys of the Union P.icitic , and the man
vho drew up tlio mortcago consolidating tlio
Julon and K.UISIS Pnciilcs. Judge Usher
larrated tlm story of the Kansas Pacific from
ts Inception. Commissioner Anderson In-
errosated the witness with regard to the
crtlllcates of stock of the Lcaveuwortli ,
awnee & Western road , xrhlcli General
Stone had said had been distributed In
arco quantities to poisons supposed to have
nlluence with members of coo cress. Judge
Jshcr denied positively that the certificate
ttrlbutcd to him had ever been In fact de
lve red to him. Ho characterized the certifi
cates as spurious and said ho had not learned
of their existence till after the passage of the
act of July 1 , IbO'J. Ho had no knowledge of
any attempt to Influence members of con
gress. The witness described at great length
lie prozress of the Kansas Pacific up to 1878 ,
vhcn vigorous efforts were made by the
company to aequlio by legislation tlio right
of through freight over the line of the Union
'acliic by compelling tlio latter company to
accept and deliver through freight
it Cheyenne. Witness and others went
o Washington In the winter of ' 78. There
10 met Jay Gould who suggested that Kan
sas Pacific stockholders sell their stock to
ilm ( Gould ) . All the Kansas Pacific stock-
lolders agreed to cell at VJJ } per cent and
he bargain was eoncl tided In tbo spring of
71) ) . A peculiar feature of the moitgagiMvas
, special provision by which the securities ot
fay Gould and Kussell Sauo were
) xempted from commutation rates and
vero entitled to bo retired at a speel-
led sum , 53,400,000 In bonds. Tlio
amount In bonds to which their sccuri-
les would have been entitled at commutation
rates pi ovided for other holders was 8 J'X- ! ! )
XX ) . Judge Usher could not remember why
his provision had been Inserted. Tlio only
iistructlons he had received were from Jay
lould personally. The witness was then
\amincd with regard to a number of Items
'ound on the Kansas Pacillc books showing
mynients for "legal expenses. " Among
hum were 57,500 to William E. Chandler
n ' 71 in assisting to get a pro-rate
till passed by concicss. An item
of S. " > ,000 lor "extraordinary expenses" at
I'opekn by Attorney Dennis , S4.7-1U to John
! . Henderson , of St. Louis , S74.'i paid Horace
ace White , S'-.OOO to R M. Shoemaker , 811,000
> aid to II. G. Ingersoll , of Washington , for
isslstlng In thu passage ot bills. Judco
Usher said ho had never had anythine to do
with such bills. The Dennis item had no
loubt been expended lu entertaining inem-
icrs ot tlio legislature at Topeka. Will-
am E. Chandler's bill ho considered
' " business " to
'or "soliciting , explaining
members of conzrcss tlio necessity for
bills becoming laws , vtc. John B. Hender
son's bill was for 'legal argument Horace
Willie's was for proDUring and delivering a
speecli before a congressional 'committee on
a pie late bill and other bills he knew noth-
ng of. Judge Usher criticised tlieofticlals'jf
the war and postolllco departments for not
givlni ; tlio Union Pacific a larger share of tlio
; overnnicnt transportation business. As to
the debt , the witness thought if the government
ernment would take Its securities
and out the interest In two making
it "M per cent , and lirst mortgage
Bondholders would do likewise the road
would p. iv Its debt and tliat plan would enable -
able Iho Kansas and western states to take
an immense stildo forward as they could
then have cheaper freight rates. The princi
pal ollico of the compauv should ho lemoved
to the west wheio itn Inteicstsaro located.
The commission will make a personal ex
amination of tlm Kansas Central road next
