Thn llnnt For McGnrlglc.
CIIICAUO , August 1. A telegram from
Sarnla , Ontario , liled at 1 o'clock this morn
ing , Rays Instructions have been received
from States Attorney Grlnncll , of Chicago ,
and the chief of police to arrest McGarlglo
on an Indictment In Montreal. The Sarnla
chief ot police has not been able to find him.
The supposition l.s that ho lias left town.
Chief of Police Ebersold admitted this
afternoon having sent a dispatch to the chief
of police at Sarnia asking that McGarlglo bo
arrested and held. Chief Ebursold said to a
reporter , "Under certain circumstances a ,
chief of police will recognize a certain esprit
do corps that exists among the heads of police
departments. " When urged to express him-
fielf more fully as to what action would betaken
taken by the Canadian authorities , ho be
came absolutely non-committal.
A special to the Evening Journal from
.Sarnla , Ont , says : McGarlglo was secluded
all the morning , but just where could not bo
ascertained. Ho was met on arrival by a
party with carriages , one of the party being
Patrick Malony , ot Chicago , formerly of Port
Huron , Mich. Everything had evidently
bean arranged for McGarlglo's reception , and
one of the party remarked that the entire
plan of the rescue was mapped out before the
escape was attempted. Had any attempt
been made to seize McGarlglo , a desperate
fight , ono of the schooner Marsh's crow says ,
would have been the result. The reported
effort to dlsf ulse the schooner Blalcc by paintIng -
Ing her red Is explained differently by the
sallou. They say red blankets wcro hung
over the schooner's side to prevent Identifi
cation. McGarlglo's wife and child are ex
pected In Sarnla to-night.
SAKNIA , Out. , August 1. McGarlgle Is In
hiding. The crown attorney has advised the
chief of police to proceed no further on the
warrant which he had last nlirht , as It was
defective. Trainmen on the Grand Trunk
report that McGarlgle went to London ,
Ont. , to-night. They recognized him from
Can't Touch McGnrlclo.
WASHINGTON , August 1. [ Special Tele-
graui to tjio BEK.J The report that the ex
tradition of McGarielc , the Chicago boodler ,
has been asked for is denied nt the state de
partment. Mcdarlclo Is safe in Canada , and
it Is the opinion of the law officers of thu
government that Chicago authorities have no
case against him upon which his arrest in tin
Dominion could be made.
But little Importance is now attached u
the Interview with States Attorney Grlnnell
in which that gentleman raises the point tha' '
one of thu owners of the Blake isaCanadlan ,
There may be some fact not yet given In tin
reports , It Is said , which would modify till :
view , however. The fact that one of tin
owners of the vessel is a Canadian would no
of Itself have any bearing upon the questlot
of the escaped boodler's extradition. Tin
owners of the vessel , both American am
Canadian , would , under our laws , be Habit
to anest If It were proven that tbev connlvei
at McGariglo's escape , knowing him to be ;
criminal , although that would not alfcct on
right to demand thu convict's surrehder b ;
A liocnl Ijcual Opinion ,
Mr. W. J. Connell was seen last night b ;
a representative ot the BKR and lnterroate ,
as to the legal probabilities of the arrest li
Canada , and return of Win. McG&rUlo to thl
"Mr. Connellgavo It as his opinion that th
Canadian authorities could not arrest an ,
hold the fugitive for a crime committed i :
this country , when there is no extraditio
treaty between this country and Canad
upon which McGarlglo can be extradited. "
do not understand , " said Mr. Comic
"that this government lias any power It ca
exercise In the matter In the absence of a
extradition treaty. If there was an extrad
live treaty covering the offense with whlc
McGarlglo Is charged then <
course the Canadian government coul
hold him ana await the demand from thl
government tor his return. The only \\n \
In my opinion by which McGariirlu can ti
brought buck to this country would be b
kidnapping him or throuith .some decoy By ;
tern , in the event this wore done I am nc
so positive but he could command protectlo
from the Canadian government though he b
a citizen of the United States. "From m
knowledge of the case , " continued Mr. Cm
nell , " 1 can see no legal power by which Me
Garlglo can bo brought back to the Unite
States when there Is no extradition treat
bearing upon the offense committed. It tak
It that ho U perfectly safe In any part of th
Canadian government from a process of u
"An olllcer of the Canadian governmer
would have no more right t
place McGarlglo under arrest than n
would anv other citizen of the United StaU
temporarily stopping within the jurlsdlctlo
of that country. "
Thn fact that McGarlgle was transportr
from this country to Canada by A clti/.en i
r the latter country commanding a Cunadla
vessel is not supposed to bavo any bearin
upon the case unless It can be proven that
was a conspiracy upon the part of the ere
of the vessel to spirit the fugatlvo away fro
tbe custodv of the otllcers ot this counu
Upon this question there Is difference i
legal opldlon. but with a preponderance ;
favor of thu case as hbovo stated.

hundreds of others completely tilled the lu
ways , thronged tbo elevators , and
tended far out on thn hltlewa
aboiblp question wn whether i
eleven defendants would surrender uncondi

the court. Plainly a majority of the crowd
expected some mo\o , but many voiced the
opinion that It was too late and that the de
fendants only hopi ) now was to tight to the
last In belief that some accident would favor
them. Ju t before the opening of the trial

He denied seriatim all the charges of bribery
against him , and In explaining how he came
to reccl\e curtain sums ot money said : "In

bring the convention here. I colleoteti money
everywhere. Wo went down to Washington

The state did not take the trouble to cross-
After several other witnesses had testified
to the gootl character of thu defendants Com
missioner Mlko Leyden took the stand. He
denied that Commissioner Lynn , the In-
lormer , ever gave him boodle or that he ever
received a cent from Btpper , except a little
contribution when Leyden went to see
Cleveland Inaugurated , witness being in
poor circumstances then.
Commissioner dells made similar denials ,
and was followed by Commissioner "Buck"
McCarthy , who paid he had attended the
famous meeting In the janitor's room to "fix
up committees. " Nothing was said about
percentages , and witness never got a dollar
dishonestly from the county.
Another Mild Sensation.
CHICAOO , August L Another mild sensa
tion has been created in the county board by
the discovery that a certain wholesale gro
cery firm of this city , which secured .the
recent contract for the Infirmary , have been
supplying goods far Inferior to the samples.
The sugar furnished was the brownest In the
market , the soap was the poorest to be had ,
and the "Java" coffee was halt chickory.
The firm has been called to account.

his contract but did enough work
to amount to 850 , leaving a balance
duo of 830. Eldrldge heard that Bobbins
was making preparations to remove ,
to No Man's land and attempted to collect
the balance of the debt Ho found Bobbins
In the barn yard and asked him for the
money. Bobbins ordered Eldridgo to leave
the promises , which ho started to do , and as
soon as ho turned his back on Bobbins the
latter picked up a four-longed pitchfork and
attacked htm with It. Ho succeeded In In
flicting half a doien ghastly wounds and It Is

WASHINGTON , August 1. The Indian of
fice , with tlio approval of the secretary of the
interior , has prepared letters of Instruction
for the guidance of special aconts recently
appointed to allot lauds In severally to In

signed to duty on the Crow reservation In

thcso Indians are to be governed by the
treaty of Agreement approved by act of con
gress of April 11 , 1SS.3. By this
treaty each Indian will receive , In

ried to Indian husbands , ami have children

been divorced from such husband after
the Indian custom , the mother .should receive
an allotment of land as the head of the fam
ily , and should bo allowed to select the land

makes a now era In the history of the Flowciy

were the beginning. The gentlemen

were apt to bo the result of any attempt In
that direction. During these experiments
the llrst newspaper message over transmitted
irom Washington to New York was sent by
T. C. Crawford , the correspondent , to the
World. As teen as these gentlemen became
satistled that there was no unoccupied ground
for telephones In the United States , they
turned their attention to other countries.
South America attracted them for a time.

They examined it , found It practically worthless -

attention to far Cathay. Colonel llobert
Christy , their attorney at Washington , had
for a number of years been on friendly terms
with the Chinese embassy , especially with
Mr. Bartlctt , their American secretary. The
