( via lluvro , ) Oct. 13. [ Now York
Herald Cable-Special to the Hii.J : : The
excitement over the CiilTnrul scandal
continues unabated. The public feel that the
nffuir U only lit the beginning , forty police
ugents huvo been searching Paris and scour
ing the country trying to find Gen. U'Audlnn. '
Not even the faintest trace of him has yet
IHJCII detected. The crowds * , at tlio Hourso
collect and talk , themselves Into the firm be
lief that Wilson and Uoulangcr arc linpll-
filled deeply. The procurer do In republlquo
has linked authorl/atlon to make a formal
search ill Elyseo Palace in the apartments of
Wilson , for compromising papers. M. Orovy ,
who Is still at Mont Sous Vnndrcy , In Jura ,
mid who Is expected to return to Paris Sat
urday , has not yet replied to the demand of
the procurer general. Of course this delay
gives Wilson a splendid chance to burn up
his papers , If he lias any. The police exam
ination of Gen. D'Audlun's apartment was
rather late In the day , as the officers on their
arrival found traces of a largo number of
papers having been burnt. They discovered ,
however some registers containing incrimin
ating entries. Count D'Andlun , who is sixty-
three yenrs of age , is u native of Nancy and
has u distinguished military record. Ho re
ceived his first commission in 1847. and re
ceived the cross of the Legion of Honor as a
reward for valor displayed In the attack of
the Mamolon and the Malakoff tower at So-
bastapol. Ho was attached to the personal
staff of the Emperor NiiK | > loon during the
whole Italian campaign and enjoyed the dis
tinction of bringing to Paris the flags cap
tured at the battle of Solferino. Ho subse
quently occupied the | > est of military attache
at Vienna. His dispatches from the Austrian
capiUd predicting the defeat of Austrian * in
IWilJ , led to his appointment as lieutenant col
onel. In the disastrous campaign of 1STO ,
hi * was attached to the general stuff
of the army of the Hhino and was
captured and u'tcred ' at Hamburg by the
Prussians. As u literary innii ho is known
ns the author of "Met * : the Campaign and
tbo Negotiations ; " "Cavalry in the Past and
Future , " "Tho Organization and Tactics
of the French Infantry Since the Origin. "
Amusing accounts are given in to-day's
Figaro of Mmo. Limou/in's modus opcrandl
towards persons introduced to her by her
agents for the purpose of obtaining decora
tions. On arrival at her apartments the vis
itor was struck by the number of photo
graphs of political celebrities about the room.
Mine. Liinoiiziii usually opened the conversa
tion with u little speech somewhat after the
following fashion : "I know what you want.
I can bo of great service to you and can com
mand success , lu fact , I am on the best of
terms with Wilson , Houlunger , Thibaudin ,
Herbetto and others. GeneralCaffarel never
misses one of my weekly receptions. "
Thereupon she produced letters from all
these notabilities and the candidate became
convinced of her oinnipotency. When it
came to the business part of the affair she
nrofessed disintorestncss , but asked for a
mrgo advance on the ground that her power
ful friends Were so exacting , saying , how
ever , that such wo\ild \ only bo regarded as u
loan in case of the decoration not being ob
tained. The price being agreed upon , the
pull naturally read every issue of the Journal
Official with avidity , expecting to find his
name in the list of honor , and gradually be-
ramo Indignant at not finding it. At last ho
would find some day the door closed in his
face and the trii'k was played. As a rule ,
the victims had the best of reasons for
not taking proceedings , mid these
dealings would possibly never huvo come
. to light but for tbo cutencss of the
detective , who represented himself as
n manufacturer from the provinces , and in-
tdtitud on an interview witli Cafl'arel.
The widow of the Italian statesman writes
to the papers to say that she has no knowl
edge of the woman professing to bear a simi
lar nuino. who has been arrested in con
nect ion with the Ciilfurcl scandals. M. Wil
son has also written a declaration tp the ef
fect that the compromising letter exhibited
by Mine , Limousin was not written by him ,
and energetically refuted the whole tissue
of lies connecting his name with the scan
dal. Wild reports are flying about that Gen-
qrul Uoulanger is 1o bo relieved of the com
mand of the Thirteen corps d'armce , but I
found no confirmation of this at the war of
fice. I had an Interview with Houlanger's
friend , Henri Kockofort , at the Intransigeunt
ofllcc. 1 sale1 , :
"What do you think of the red ribbon scan
dal I"
"Think of it , " said Uochcfort , "I think the
uffuir was originally got up by the min
istry to ruin Houlunger. They did not
Buucead , w they tried to run the president.
When they began they had no idea that such
big people would bo dragged into the scandal
mid now every one is mad and would give the
world to hursh it up. "
"You do not think Uoulanger will be dam
aged , then. "
"Damaged } No. What has he done ?
How can u public man help receiv
ing shady people who ask to see him I Their
position compell them to receive all sorts of
jmoplo. Why , if you were to go on that prid-
ciplo you would convict Mine. Cornet for let
ting Marchandon , the murderer , Into her
house. "
"Do you Intend intend to publish any now
letters about M. Wilson ) "
"No. 1 have none to publish. All I know is
that Krcltmnycr maintains the authenthicity
of the letters ho had published. "
"Do you believe in General D' Andluu's
"I do not. Ho is not the sort of man tn
kill himself. Ho Is too old. "
"Ami what will come of the scandali"
"It will cause the fall of the ministry. If
will not upset M. Grevy. Ho will simply repu
diate the people who huvo compromised them-
selves. As for Mmo. Limouzin , tnUo m\
word for it , she will get off with a fortnight's
Imprisonment , if she goes to prison at all ,
.which I doubt. Hut whoever else escapes ,
the ministry won't. "

What to Do AVItli Them the Greatest

LONIION , Oct. 13. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Hen. ] A problem
scnrrely Inferior In Importance to the Irish
question must shortly cull for the considera
tion of the government , namely , what to do
with the unemployed , continually inert-using
in number. AH who cnnnot find employment
in other parts of the country flock here ,
filled with the spirit of the old legend , "Lon
don streets nro paved with gold. " Too soon
they find the truth of Dequlney's saying ,
"Oxford street a stony hearted step
mother. " Poor agricultural laborers nnd
artisans from towns , spend their last shill
ing to go to London , only to find themselves
further from work than ever. They go to
swell the immense crowd of homeless outcasts -
casts of a city , which grows at n rate that
alarms every one familiar with its
population , which amounts to 4f)00,0000 ,
always rolling up. With no important
manufactures hero and no productions adding
to the national wealth , London is fast becom
ing u source of weakness and danger to the
entire community. The government is pow
erless , yet it is expected to do something. The
early uppeurunco of winter on the scene
ileepcns the anxiety of the authorities. Large
crowds meet dully in Trafalgar square not
'cnuino workingmen , professional loafers or
pickpockets , but away In the background a
large mass of suffering humanity , thousands
of women nnd children on the verge of starv-
.itlon. Private charity is active. Thousands
of pounds are spent that are never he rd of
n the papers , but still the horrible cry of
hunger and want still rings through the vast
ity. What can any government do I Very
few people are rich. Even u general division
of property would go no way now. The rich
are getting poor and the poor arc sinking into
destitution. It is not the fault of the present
ministry , but it will suffer from the preva
lence of trade depression and discontent.
Every consideration should induce it to
specially close up its ranks and act in solid
body and prepare for a winter that will tax
all the statesmanship in the conservative
The verdict as anticipated of willful mur
der Zt Mitchellstown produces little effect on
public opinion , the somewhat violent scenes
in court having discredited the procccdidgs.
I do not anticipate that the matter can go
further. Either a nolle proscqui will bo en
tered or the grand Jury will throw out the
bill. Ilightly or wrongly the opinion is gen
eral that the police fired In self-defense.
Conviction for murder is entirely out of the
question. Attacks on authority everywhere
must inevitably produce a strong reaction in
favor of the police. An imitation of the
National league is being formed in Lgndon
for bringing about a reduction of house rents ,
csi > oeially in the poorer districts of the Edit
End , where in'thousands of houses not fit to
live in the rents are excessive. No grace is
allowed. When the people cannot pay , more
evictions take place in London in ono month
'than in Ireland in a whole year. Monday
morning the rent is demanded and If not
paid out goes the tenant. If in debt the bro
kers' man call and the goods are sold. I
never heard a complaint , such is the English
respect for law. Hut it is time that some
thing was done to save the honest tenant
from the grasping landlords. If the new
league takes cautious action a largo body of
public opinion will bo In its favor.
All this outcry abe Salisbury's health is
mere Idle sensation. The fact is his health
Is not strong nnd exercise work docs not Im
prove matters , but no change for the worse

a tree feller is of no account. If ho would be

health would bo improved nnd his party be
better satisfied. The prospective changes In

The health of another well known man
who has done moro real good in the world
than all the politicians put together , excites
real uneasiness. Spurgcon , n murtyt

causing the approach of ouch winter to be
regarded with apprehension. Ho has taken
more poor children off the streets nnd started
them comfortably in life than any man who
can be nuificd. His orphan asylum is u mar
vellous proof of what ono man can do to
mitigate suffering1 His state of health ,
though not unusually bad , is a source ol
greater anxiety to many thousands than
Gladstone's or Salisbury's.

KANSAS CITV , Mo. , Oct. III. The demon
stration in Kansas City In honor of the pres
ident of Uiu Untied States was u noisy and
tumultous proceeding , but Is.attended with
no more disorder than bccms to bo Inevitable
wherever the president appears. The advent
of the president has hardly left standing
room In town. The rldo was mi enjoyublo
uffuir. The carriages of visitors nnd
the escort committee were pre
ceded nnd followed by small
troops of cavalry. The marshal
of the procession , Colonel Milton Moore , ac
companied by about twenty deputies , headed
the lino. The party set out from the hotel at
0:30 : amid the cheers of the mult itudo and inudo
Its way rapidly through the western portion
of the town without stopping until it reached
the highest eminence- the city. Imme
diately beneath stretched five or six square
miles of railroad yards , nnd as the president's
carriage made its upputirnnuo on the brow of
the hill every locomotive of all of the fifteen
ruilrouds centering hero blew its whistle. A
brief pause .was made at the exposition build
ing , but the president did not alight. From
this point the party proceeded to the site of the
projected Y. M. C. A. building , corner Ninth
and Locust streets of which the president
laid the corner stono. Tills ceremony was
preceded by singing of hymns , a brief ad
dress , prayer by Bishop Hcudric , mid an ad-
"ress by the president.
The president's remarks on the occasion
, vcro as follows : "In the busy activities of
mr daily life we are apt to neglect the In
strumentalities which nro quietly but effeo-
.uully doing the most important service in
Holding our national etiaracter. Among

hroughout our country. All will admit the

irlndplo which forms Christian motives and
mrposcs , and nil will acknowledge the sad
mil increasing temptations which beset our
, 'oung men and lure them to Destruction. _ To

couraging condition reflect the highest honor
upon the good men who have devoted them
selves to this work and demonstrate that the
American pcflplo are not lucking in apprecia
tion of its value. Twenty years ago but ono
of these associations owned a building and
hat was valued at only $ il,0KT. ( To-day

active and growing city , and trust that the
encouragement given to the Young Men's
Christian association locutcd here may be
commensurate with its assured usefulness
mid in keeping with the generosity and in
telligence which characterizes the people of
Kansas City. "
While the ceremonies were in progress the
corps of pickpockets which has followed the
presidential party throughout its tour indus
triously plied their trade. Ono of these
gentry was discovered by his victim in the
act , just too late , however , to prevent rob
bery. Loud cries of "Catch that man" in
terrupted the impressive proceedings for a
time. The man was seen to dash from the
crowd , Jump oft a stone wall , knock over ono
or two women and rush for freedom , with
three or four policemen after him.
When the brief proceedings were ended
the president and his party went to their
hotel , where an hour was given to lunch.
In the afternoon President and Mrs. Cleve
land were escorted through the business
streets of the city to the government build
ing , wiiero they arrived about 8 o'clook.
They were escorted out upon the front portico
tico , where a stand had been erected , facing
a crowd of fully fifty thousand people. Mayer
Kumpf nuulo a formal speech of welcome , to
which the president replied at some length.
Ho spoke of the wonderful growth , prosper
ity and enterprise of Kansas City , quoted
statistics and made comp.irisons which ho
thought indicated substantial prosperity. Ho
closed as follows : "When I leave you I shall
go on my way of travel to visit our fellow-
citizens in the south. I shall bear to the
older cities the impressions made by my ob
servations of the new , fresh and astounding
growth of these of the west. I shall see the
section of our country whoso prosperity is
necessary to your prosperity. I shall
not find people heedless of our
nation's growth and .welfare , but I shall find
there as well as here a determined , cheerful
American pride of country , stimulating to
activity and enterprise and leading not less
there than here to national greatness and
glory. The west and south , and every sec
tion , are hand in hand in this sublime mission
and no discord of partisan hate and runcor
should bo allowed to interrupt the cadence ol
their steady tread. "
At the conclusion of the president's re
marks the people were given an opportunity
to greet him nnd his wife. The reception
continued until fl o'clock , and there were
then still a number in line who loft disap-
iwinted. The party returned to the Coates
house for dinner.
Tills evening at 0 o'clock President anil
Mrs. Cleveland and party were entertained

day nnd will meet again to-morrow morning.
The meeting is supi > oscd to bo for the pur
pose of discussing freight rates and "com
promising" the fight between the state board
and the railroads. What was done In this
direction can only bo conjectured , ns Mr.
Klmball , whoso flncsso in this kind of busi
ness was recognized by making him spokes
man , oiwmed his speech by requesting that re
porters bo excluded. The president of the
board , Auditor Babcock , thereupon rose and
requested the reporters to give the board the
room , which was valued moro than their com
pany , the board refusing to muko n
motion to that effect. There were in attend-
unco the following rullroud men : T. L. Kim-

icon mudo to Lincoln shippers to give them
i-hut they ask , und If the fight of the board

ray It will probably bo dono. Naturally
nough there would bo no desire to bring this
