Cable Special to the BKK. ! The crowd
fduce midnight has grown and multiplied ,
and there nro now 30,000 people gathered
about Alt the rlif-rnff nnd scum of Belle
ville , nil the disreputable women and Idlers
nf the Boulevard Montumrtrc , all the morbid
foreigners at prcsentsojournlug In Paris nnd
all the iourna'.ists , whom duty compels to bo
hero , are gathered about the approaches to
the grim , frowning prison ot this
dnrk and solemn night in the Plnco
do In Raucuietto. The feublo glimmer of a
dozen gas lamps sheds a dismal light upon
this crowds pacing up aud down in front of
the prison. The trees which dot the place
nro filled with jeering gammons who defy
the Injunctions of the police , "Come down
out of that. " In cairiages there
nro hundreds of cocottcs In gay
toilets , drinking cbampngno and smoking
cigarettes. Hero and there a weary tramp Is
curled up nnd asleep against the wall or on
n bench. How any ouo can sleep nt all In
such a turmoil Is strange Indeed nnd yet long
habit enables scores of them to do It. Every
now and then a fresh gang of black guards
arrives , swearing , smoking and shouting , era
a carriage draws up , loaded with passen
gers relatively respectable , and Is greeted
with a derisive chorus of "Viola Praiulnl
qul arrive. " To while away the tlmo the
crowd makes occasional excursions around
the corner to a shed In the Run des Folles
Kengault , n predestined uani * , surely.
When M. ; Dclbler , the executioner , nnd
his drended assistants , wore picparlng the
guillotine during the evening long after the
regulation police hours , the wine shops In the
neighborhood of the tcrrlblo machine
wcro crowded with customers. Once or
twice the "Executor of Lofty Deeds , " as they
call the executioner hero , and Ills underlings ,
steal In to refresh themselves with a drop of
drink , but very few of tlio idlers recognize
them and those who do , of course , fall to
gain any information out of them.
Now couplets have been added to the lu-
gubiloussoiig :
C1 est sa tote ,
Qu Ml nous fnut
Oh ! ohloh !
fit Is his head which we desire. " ]
Shortly after midnight the rntllo of hoof
and clanking of sabers announced the arrival
of the mounted gendarmes nnd Gardes do
Paix. In a twinkle the place before the prison
was cleared of all but a few journalists and
the police ngcnts. The crowd , driven back ou
all sides , formed again nt either end ot
the place , shouting nud singing.
Then came a long pause. About
3 o'clock the rumble of wheels
was heard In the direction of the Rue des
Folles Kecnault. A few minutes afterward
a cart came jolting over the paving stones
towards the entrance of the llttlo avenue fac
ing the prison gate. There It halted and the
executioners assistants jumped off. .Then
for half an hour a dreadful sound of hammer
ing rose above the songs and cat calls.
"Monsieur do Paris" and his mon were pre
paring the Inn woods of justice for the tragic
business before them. As the hammering
ceased , a cab drove up In the place and tlio
prison chaplain , Abbo Fauro , stepped out
with tlio procureur de In rcpublHiuc and hur
rying past the guillotluo disappeared In the
prison door.
A IS o'clock precisely the priest was scon
Issuing fiom the prison gnte. Behind him
came Pran/Iul , gnastly pale , led by four
executioner's assistants. As ho neared the
scaffold ho faltered for n moment , then
turning with n dreadful smile of hgotiy
kissed the crucifix nnd walked forward
steadfastly. The next Instant the kulfo tell.
Prnnzlni had expiated his crime.
Meeting of the League In Dublin.
DUIILIN , August S ) . William O'Brlon
editor of United Ireland , presided to-day
over thu fortnightly meeting of the Irish Na
tional league in this city. The meeting was
unusually largo. A number of Catholic cler
gymen were present Mr. Hartington an
nounced that Charles Augustus Yanslttart
Conybeare , radical , member of parliament
( or North west Cornwall , and Charles Ernest
Bchwnnn , liberal , member for North Man
chester , had joined the league. O'Brien
laid that the first branch of the league against
which ttio government should issue the
proclamation would hold its meeting with
closed doors and refuse to open them for the
police , even If they demanded admittance.
This would leave the police nothing to debut
but to break their way In if they were de
termined to enter. As the police would
probably resort to this violence , the central
branch of the league would then ask the lord
mayor to grant them the use of the city hall ,
wltli special police to defend it during thu
league meetings therein. A majority of the
Dublin city council , as well ns the lord
mayor , are strong nationalists and leadois In
the league.

Professor nalrd's Huccr-mor.
WASHINGTON , August 30. [ Special Tele
gram to the BEE. ] The appointment by the
president ot Prof. S. Brown Geode to bo
United States commissioner of fish and
fisheries is looked upon as an indication thnt
Senator Gorman , ot Maryland , will not hnvo
as muchc Inlluono with the president from
this time forward ns ho has enjoyed In the
pant Mr. Gorman had a man for this place.
Ho was a warm supporter of the candidacy
of Major Ferguson , the deputy commissioner ,
Ferguson Is the son-in-law of ex-Governor
Swan , of Maryland , and he was very anxious
to secure the promotion. He has boon un
ceasing In his efforts ever since Prof.
Balrd died. Ho became so Importunate that
ho president was distrusted. Gorman and
there were called upon to work In Fer
guson's Interest and on the day before the
resident selected Judge McCue to hold the
> ositton tcra-porurlly , Ferguson's friends told
ilm that the office must DO filled at once , as
he ten davs allowed by law were about to
ixplro. and Major Ferguson would not bo re-
ponslblo for the disbursement of tlio funds
of the commission unless he should bo offi
cially designated to act as commissioner.
This decided the president to act at one * , lie
asked Assistant Secretary Thompson to ac
cept the temporary designation , but that
; entleman said that be should have to do-
illne , as acceptance would bring too much
idlcule upon him because ho had no know-
edee whatever of scientific subjects. Juctpo
McCuo wns out of the city at the time , and It
was pnrtly because of this fact that the presl-
lent decided to name him for tlio place.
When McCuo returned to Washington , ho
considered that the place was meant tor him
> ern > anently. When ho heard unofficially
hat the appointment was only temporary ,
10 was very Indignant , and declared that ho
cnew better , that the president would not
'Insult" him by n temporary appolnt-
uent , and that ho could and would
till the position ns well as nny one else. Last
night the president sent for Professor Geode
and after a brief talk with him he decided
hat he was the best man tor tlio position
that could bo selected. The appointment
was made shortly after noon. An hour be
fore that Judge McCuo said that ho had not
made up his mind whether ho would accept
or decline. It was evident from his manner
that he Intended to accent. When ho heard
of the subsequent action of the president , ho
was veiy much put out and declines to dis
cuss tlio subject at nil. The selection of
Professor Geode Is regarded ns tlio best that
could possibly have been made. Mr. Geode
lias made fish n special study , and under him
the valuable work begun by Professor Balrd
will doubtless be carried ou under thu plan
which that gentleman had laid out. Tlio
onlv persons who criticise the appointment
are the friends of Gorman audlFerguson , who
arc very much disgruntled.
The Ute Trouble.
WASHINGTON , August 30. General Terry
telegraphs from Chicago to the war depart
ment to-day requesting that Indian Agent
Byrnes bo instructed to remove from his
reservation nil intruders , as tlio civil and
military authorities , In tholr excitement , may
forget that state writs do not extend beyond
Lho limit of a state and may precipitate a
general outbreak of the reservation Indians
by crossing the border.
Telegraphic Instructions were sent this
afternoon by the president to Governor
Adams to confine the actions of the civil au
thorities strictly within the limits of the
General Terry telegraphs from Chicago to
the adjutant general that ho has received n
dispatch from Commander Handlett , dntcd
Fort Uu Chesue , saj Ing that Colorow and all
his followers nre now nt Ouiny ngency , and
manifest a disposition to remain on the res
ervation. The militia and cowboys hold n
hundred horses nnd a thousand sheep nnd
gents belonging to Colorow nnd Chlplta ,
Onrny's widow. This stock was cnulng on
land claimed by the Indians as belonging to
their reservation , nnd where they have boon
permitted by their ngent to live for years ,
Colorado settlers have claimed locations there
nnd succeeded in driving the Indians In.
Colorow , has not in this trouble been ou the
war path , nnd has made his way to the res
ervation avoiding hostilities as lar ns pos
sible. J
WASHINGTON , August 30 , A telegram
from Indian Agent Byrnes to tlio Indian
commissioner says Colorow nnd followers
nro at the agency and do not want to fight.
Major Leslie , who fired on the Indians on
the Dorder reservntlon , took possession and
run elf 300 head of Indian horse ? . The cow
boys are breakinir these horses tor their own
use. The Indians , when attacked , were ou a
peaceable huiUlng expedition nnd believed
they ImdnrigV to hunt on these lands. Ho
requests the war department to instinct the
commander at Fort Duohesno to recover tlio
noises and other property and return them
to the reservation. The Indian commis
sioner lias Instructed Byrnes to remove from
the reservation all persons found thereon
contrary to law , to restore to the Indians all
the property abandoned by thum and that
the military would bo ordered to co-oper.uo
In enforcing the instructions. The secretary
of the intotlor has telegraphed Governor
Adams to deliver to Indian Agent Byrnes
the horses and other property taken by
Major Leslie.

says : " 1 simply could not accept the nomi

not accept a nomination for tlio vlco presi

regret the use of my name in connection
with nny public olllco whatever. It
seems d illicit it for the nvorngo American
to understand that it is possible for any ono
not to desire tint presidency , but I most cer
tainly do not I have seen too much of It. I
can well remember the ticmcndoiis burden
my father was called upon to bear. 1 have
seen enough of the Inside ot Washington of
ficial life to have lost all deslro for It. The
presidential otllco Is but a glided prison. Its
cares nud worry out weigh the honor which
surrounds the position. 1 don't think there
