haying Down the Imw.
WASMISOTOV , Oct. 27V [ Special Tclcgtam
to Uio HKE. ] A largo"numljcr of people
went to the capital to ilny to attend the an-
urchlsts hearing , but ns the court room Is
small , only about ono hunched nnd flftygot
In and sc\ernl hudicd fulled to get admission.
The proceedings wcrocry polcmn. All the
Judges paid tloso attention to arguments pro
duced and several of tlicm Intel iiiptcd the ut-
torneis to ask them questions. The anarch *
lots' counsel made tin Interesting picture. Hen
Butler was there In flue broad cloth , swallow
tall coat , broad shirt front und \cryflnc
button hole boqucit. Next to him Koger A.
I'rjor looking like n ciossbetwecu a phantom
long-bailed Puritan preacher and
wild Indian. Randolph Tucker looked
plain bcsido those two with
bin gray } mlr nnd gold-rimmed spectacles.
Behind these there sat Captain Ulack and
Salmon , the Chicago law1 , cis. At the other
end of the table sat Attorney General Hunt ,
of Illinois , State's Attorney Grlnnell and as-
distant , all three very plain , matter of-faet
looking men.
Itnndolph Tucker made the 111st aigumrnt
and one that surprised these of his old
filcnds who wcro picscnt. Ho has alwaj1 ?
been an cxtierne state's rights man , but to
day claimed that the fourteenth amendment
to the federal constitution virtually makes
the supreme com t the guardian of all the
rights and prhileges of eveiy clti/en in all
the states nnd cunfeis upon It the power tc
practically review all licenses in state courts.
Ho claimed that his clients had not been con
victed by duo process of law , us the four
teenth amendment required , and that u
charge to effect suftlcient
to nuthoii/o the coutt to issue
a writ of cuoi. Tor this the
application was made. The question as tu
whether thutchunge was \\ell foundul would
have to bo investigated under the writ. In
explanation of their position and the proofs
by which they would maintain it , he said that
they mainly icly on the mannei of Delecting
the Jury which tried the condemned ; that the
Jucy did not consist of imp.utial men , but
contained soaw who acknowledged they had
fonned opinions and that the c'uss ' of people
to whom the accused belonged weto vigoi-
ously excluded fiom the Juiy. The con
demned men weiu not ti led by a Juiy of their
j > oeiH. Ho finUKTstated that an unlawful
seal ch had lie-en nnidu m the houses of the
defendants for evidence to convictthem ; that
the letteis so obtained were not only used as
evidence against tliem , but that one of the
defendants ( Spies ) was foiccd to testify that
no hud lecehcd them fiom .lohnnn Most.
This , Mr. Tinker claimed , amounted to u
violation of two provisions of the constitu
tion : That against the scaich of persona
without warrant of law and that against
compelling poisons to nccuso or testify
ngainst themselves. Ho stated that thcso
constitutional piovi-ilons were contained in
the first ten amendments to the constitution ,
which woio In effect a bill of i Ights and that
the fourteenth amendment included them all ,
made them stronger and guaiantccd them to
nil citl/cns. Mr. Tucker was inteiruptcd
several times , once by .lustHo Field , who
miid that if Tucker's position was correct all
litigation would finally bo bi ought before the
supicmo coutt. The other justices seemed
to agree. With a somewhat theatiical appeal
to the court ho said that ho appealed against
the anarchists of lynch law as exemplified by
the trial of the condemned petitioners whom
bo represented.
Attoinoy General Hunt answered in n
clear , calm , plain uigument , which was
highly inteiesting. Ho justified the jury law
of Illinois , which had been made not to pro-
cmo Juries pijudlced to accused pusoiicis ,
but to put some intelligence in Uiojmybo\cs ,
In thcso times of piogic-s , of the telcgtapli
and newspapers , all intelligent men mo usu.
ally infoimed of ci lines happening und the
law only said that these men , if they had nc
opinions exi opt those foimcd bv leading the
nowspupeis or bi Illinois , nnd decline undct
oath that they can still lender an Impartial
vci diet aecoi ding to the testimony , sbouli
not bo disqualified as juiots. So far as tin
statement was concerned that evidence
against the condemned had been ptoduced bj
a search not dhectlv authorized by law , he
said the question of how it ( the letter fiom
Most to Spies ) , hud been obtained bud nothni (
to do with the case. lliosupiemocouita few
years aio und In the case of ICcrs. . the Pee
mo of the State of Illinois , had so decided
In that case the plaintiff in ciror had beci
kidnapped In I'ciu , hi ought to Chicago
tried und condemned. Ho bad pleaded thai
ho bud nBt lawfully come Into charge of the
coiut. but the supreme coiut said that I
mattered not how ho pot theie , the Illluoi1
couit bad the light to tiy him , and BO it was
In this case.
General Butler then announced that he np
peami for Spies and Fioldcn. Ho will speal
to-morrow. Ho claims Unit bis two client !
ore not citizens of the United States , but o
Germany and England , icspcctlvclv , ant
that under a special ticaty citi/ens of thcsi
foieign countiles enjoy special pi iv Urges
Ho makes the same points icgaiditig tin
search for evidence , illegal jury , etc. , tha
Tucker made , but claims that the provision1

pilvileges nnd Immunities as citizens of tilt

foieign citizens uccoidmg to the laws it
foico ut the time the treatise was e-oncludec
This position of Hutlei's is much lidiculed
nud It is not probable that bo will bo able ti
iiiulco a respectable argument for it.
[ Press. ! Shortly after 1 o'clock the elite
justice said that each side would bo allow ei
three hours and that Grinnell might speak
Tucker then said it was not ncicssaiy fo
htm to show as a condition pi ecedcnt to grant
Ing the writ that the action complained of Ii
the court below was actually icpugnant to o
In violation of the constitution ; it was enl ,
necessary to show that u conflict had ailsen-
that there was u question whether the actioi
complained of was not repugnant to the con
Btltutlon. That was enough to give this com
jurisdiction. It was the object of the statut
of IbtIT to gl\o free access to this couit In u !
cases where there was a question of tl.i
kind. Uwas not to show lepujj
nancy , but only conflict. If theio is a eon
lllct then this couit has jurisdiction , and if I
lias Juilsdletlon , then the petltioncis nro cr
titled to a wilt us u right. "Tillscouit , " sal :
Tucker. "Is a city of refupo from the avenge
of blood , and any man who comes hnio an
takes hold of thei horns of justice should no
bo repulsed. " The policy of this eouil
ho said , hud been to deal libciall
with petitions for wilts of oiror i
civil eases. How much moio should It dor
liberally with a petition for a wiitof cirei
In a criminal snse , involving issues of IK
nnd death In n case whom life \vus about t
bo taken away In violation of the constiti
tion , Proceeding then to the met its of th
case , Tucker said it was not necessary that
law of such n state should bo absolutely an
on its face unconstitutional in order to glv
this coiut Jui billet ion of a case under-It , ]
a law ; seemingly fall- and Just ou its fac
should have put upon It by thestuteexmits
construction contrary to the constitutloi
that wcs enough to gwo this couit jurlsdli
tion. Tucker then reviews the hlstoiy of th
Kdontlon of the fourteenth amendment , an
cam that although It was originally intcndr
to ffuamiitco partlculaily tights of cnfrai
Chlsijmont to the blacks , there wui nc rcaso
Why white citizens' should oi enjo

the benefits of its provisions. Tucker
quoted the Fourteenth amendment
and discussed the meaning of the
words , "duo process of law , " and said that
although it had been held by this court that
trial without indictment by a grand Juiy
might be "due process of law , " and might bo
perfectly constitutional , it never had been
held or intimated that trial by iwtlt Jury
could bo dispensed with. It seemed , he said ,
to be everywhere conceded that "duo pro
cess of law" lequlrcd trial by a Jury of one's
peei s. It Is essential that the Jury , should bo
unbiased , unpiojudlccd and Impartial and
that It should not bo n class Juiy. Tucker
then asserted that the Juiy law of Illinois
u us unconstitutional In that It provided that
thofoimingof an opinion from reports or
fiom newspaper accounts of certain transactions -
actions should not ncccssailly dis
qualify a person having such opin
ion from sitting in Judgment on
that transaction nsn juror. Even although
the law might seem to bo fair and Just , If by
constiuction und administration it w ere maelo
to deny to prisoners the right of trial by a
fair and impartial Jury , then such construc
tion nnd administration constituted law and
made it unconstitutional. The construction
given to the law In this case was different
fiom the coustiuction given to It in u largo
number of other cases in the same stuto. Ho
then lefeircd to the objections made by the
defense at the tiial to the rulings of the court
in the matter of challenges , to the refusal of
the court on the motion for n now trial to
hear evident o going to show that a bailiff had
said that "Tho men ho hud selected for the
panel would bo cei tain to hung , " and to vari
ous other lullngs and decisions of the tiial
court , which had the effect of denjlng to the
ptisoncrs a fair trial by an impartial
Juiy. Turning then to another question
raised bv the case , which , he said , was anew
one in this court , ho quoted the second clause
of the fourteenth amendment to the effect
that "No state shall make or enforce any law
w hich shall ubi Idgc the pi Iv ileges or immu
nities of citii-ons of the Uiiited States. "
Among the "privileges and immunities" thus
guaranteed by the fourteenth amendment
were , he contended , those set forth In the
Jirst ten amendments to the federal constitu
tion. It hud been maintained , bo said , that
these first ton amendments to the constitu
tion were limitations of federal power only ,
but It was his belief that unless the privi
leges und immunities wcio specifically said
tb bo merely limitations of federal power
they were privileges and immunities which
came within the pin view of the fourteenth
amendment and woie guuinnteed by it.
Chief Justice Wuite Then you would
bring all questions to this couit. I cannot
conceive ol any question which cannot bo
bi ought here if the fouiteenth amendment
makes "privileges and immunities , to which
it tofeis include nil those of the Hist ten
Tucker said he would admit that it was a
new question , but ho should like to aiguo it.
"Now , I make the asset turn , " said Tucker ,
"that the right to bo exempt from unicasona-
blo searches and semnes. the light of free
dom of specth , the light of a citi/en against
self-accusation nnd the light of u citizen not
to bo twice tiled bv a juiy , aio f-ceuied to
him by vlituo of the constitution of the
United States Being so , the fouiteenth
amendment comes in and sajs , 'No
state shall make or enfoico any
law which abildgcs the lights
or privileges of citi/ens " Tinning to the
action and lullngs of the tiial court , Mr.
Tinker' said the defence witb dm en to pot-
cmptoiy challenges In older tocxcluilo juiois
who should have been te-jcctod for cause and thcicby theio was a limitation of the
light of peicmptoiy challenge which this
couit his held to bo one of the highest
pi alleges of the pusoner. "The hist foui
jomois , " said Mr. Tucker , "weio put upon
us after out pcicmptoiy challenges had been
exhausted. In ono case ( Juior Honker ) , we
objected distini tly upon the giound that the
lulmg of couit was In violation of the consti
tution. " Tucker then lefciicil to the scuuto
of letteis , pi ivutc papois , etc , and their use
us evidence , and said this was a violation of
the fourth amendment.
In conclusion Tucker said : "Wo have a
light , in my judgment , to-wit : To
bo hcnid on the question whether
the constitution has been violated in
oidcr to compass the conviction of these men.
It is true they are said to bo anarchists , but
they aio men and ura entitled to the same
profction that 1 am. 1 know of no anaiehy
abioud in this land which the American
peoulo need fear except the tumichy ih the
administration of justice. I pi ay that the
couit will theiefoie award this wut , for , if I
do not mistake , theio nio e\idenccs in the
whole iceord which will demand a icveisal
of the Judgment. "
Attoiney Geueial Hunt then addressed the
com I In behalf of the state and in opposition
to the motion for a wilt of error. To w.u-
lant the issuance of a writ it must appear , ho
bald , fiom the iccoid , Hist , that theio is a
fedeial question iiuolvcd , anil , second , that
such question was laiscd and dct ulcd in the
state couit. Ho was not as well informed us
ho would like to b with icgaid to the exact
points upon which the counsel for the peti
tioners iclied. In the fiist pait of his aigu-
nieut Mi..Tucker planted himself fcquaiely
upon the lights "which belonged to his
client , under the fouiteenth amcpdimmt.
but in the lattei pint lie ch mgcd the giound
slightly and insisted that the Hist ten amend
ments weio declarations of individual lights
and that they weio all compi iscd in the proVisions -
Visions of the foiuth amendment. The nttoi-
ncy gcncuil opmscd hi , view and B lid that sc
fur as the petitioners iciy upon ahj thing
contained In the o amendments they can have
no standing in this court. The fouiteenth
amendment Is equally foieign to any light ,
piiulego or immunity hciei claimed by the
petitioners. The iccoid will show that the
complaint is not that the state has mudo or is
c'liloit mg a law whli It depuves thejipetitlou-
cm of any piiMk'gc'Hoi * immunities guuian-
teed by that section , but that they .11 e dcpi id
of their lights by an ciioncous constiuction
of the law placed upon it by the lual i ourt oi
the state. The petitioners did not claim in
the supieme couit of the state that the Illi
nois act of 1&74 was lopumiant to the consti
tution , treaties or laws of the United States ,
nor that the authoiity of the couit was oxci-
used under it , but that act was constitutional
and valid and the eomt cseicised its powci
in violation of that law. The potitioncis
weio tiled in the conns of the s-t.ito xmdcr
the laws of the state and tint constitutes
"duo pioees-i of law. " Jt is not material that
this or another coiut might have ruled
differently under the law. Due process
of law means the law of the land ,
Mr Hunt then cited the caio of Picsscrvs
thei State of Illinois let-aiding the militia hiw
of thu state , This decision forecloses and
bai s out the contention of counsel that the
lights contemplated in the language of the
llrst ten amendments weio all included m the
fouiteenth amendment , and extended
special guaiantces and immunities to citizens
of the United States. Attoiney Genera !
Hunt then tin ned his attention to the const !
tutional provision that "No state shall denj
to any person equal protection of laws , " ant
submitted to the , court that "cqiul piotcctioi
of laws" and "privileges und immunities'
contemplated by the amendment
weio only those for whoso en
forccimnt i-ongiess piovidee
by subsequent legislation , and hav
ing acted , conpiess has exhausted the subjce' '
until It chooses to take it up again. Turning tt
the composition of the jury lu the tiial couit
the uttoincy general s > aid ho did not see how
the pcisonnol of the jury which tried the pe
tltioneis In this cisu could properly bo sub
milled to tlio ( oui t or consider tl by Jt in tin
piescnt pi acceding. This Inquiiy must b <
mudo us to the caustitiimality of the Juiy lav
of the state of Illinois und not as to how tin
state couit may have cousldcicd that law
The iccoid showed , ho believed , that on tin
challcngo of one juror the suggestion wa :
made by ono of the counsel foi
the piisoncrs that thcie WTV
n pioxiblon in the const itutioi
of Illinois as well us in the constitution o
the United States guaranteeing to ovorj
poison a tiial by un hnpaitial JUJ.M. The per
Ron at w nose ohullengii the suggestion wai
made ) did not finally sit in the juiy that ti leu
the ease. Ho would submit that in order ti
give thopartles standing in couit asupgcstloi
or objection be madn with regard to tin
Jurov who actually tiled thecaso , or that b :
icason of exhaustion of their peremptoi :
challenge the pctltioiicis weio compelled t <
accept unlncoirpc'tcut juror and were thereby
Invpauibly damaged. This question wai
never raised with icgaid to any juror whi
did actually sit In that case.
Chief Justlte Wiu. it not raised In San
fprd's cv.s4)l Ithink , It U tuown in the mew
orandum which wo have that It was raised as
to Sanord.
Mr. Grlnnell , interrupting If the court
please , the memorandum is not n fair tran
script of the record.
After some colloquy the chief Justice di
rected that all the parts of the record relat
ing to the question thus raised should bo
printed and submitted to the court to-morrow.
Attorney General Hunt , resuming , once
more icferrcd to the fact that the Jury law
of Illinois was not attacked by counsel on the
other side in the state supreme court. They
stated there , ho said , that they did not think
It necessary to attack the constitutionality of
the law "because It may bo given a con
struction which would make it unobjectiona
ble. " Mr. Hunt believed it to bo
well settled and established that this
court will not review the decision
of the supreme court of a state as to the con
struction to bo given toalts own constitution
and Its own laws. Ho then spoke for some
time of the jury law , which , ho said , has
been a common law all over the United
States , and always. The law was substan
tially the same as these of New York , Michi
gan , Arkansas , Colorado nnd Nebraska. He-
cent changes in the Jury laws of the states
had for their puriwso and obfect the procure
ment of a better und more intelligent class of
men as jurors. "Is it imssiblc , " the attoiney
general asked , "that the states ate to bo so
bound by the federal constitution that they
cannot change their jury laws in accordance
with the changing conditions of their social
and political life I" Ho hoped the couit
would matin cly consider the far-reaching
consequences of the construction which
the petitioners desired to have
given to the fourteenth amendment.
As to the alleged "Unreasonable search
and seizure , " Mr. Hunt said ho would like
to Know how a criminal's instruments of
crime could legally bo taken from him. Ho
knew of no process by winch it could bo done
If they were his own. The question for the
court , however , was not "How was the
possession of these things obtained ! " but
rather , "What do they provol"
The attorney general cited the recent case
of Ker , brought back from South America
without extradition. The court held that the
question was not "How did you get here ? "
but "Aro you guilty I" The attorney general
then took up the case of the prisoners.
Ficlden and Spies , and said ho understood
that it would bo argued by counsel
on the other side that they being foreigners
Fieldcn un Englishman nnd Spies a Ger
man were piotected by the treaties between
the United States and their respective gov
ernments ; that they should have immunity
because the treaties provided that citizens of
England and Germany living in the United
States should huvo all the lights and piivi-
legcs guaranteed by law to citizens of the
United States at the time the ticaties weio
Chief Justice In what respect is it said
that this violates the citi7cnship of Great
General Butler They wcro to have all the
piivileges of Amci leans at the date of the
tieaties , and among these piivilcges , wo con
tend , was a tiial by Jury under the laws then
In force. No laws could bo passed to change
their condition under the oiganio law the
highest law.
Attorney General Hunt icplied that If this
wcro so , then the pusoners , without being
cltl/ens , wciopiivileged prisons , above the
laws of the state which they set nt ) defiance.
At this point the hour for adjournment ui-
rived and fuither argument was postponed

Le > X ! > ONOct. ST. [ New Yoik Herald Cable
Special to the BJ.E. ] I visited Llojd's this
afternoon to obtain details touching the stu
pendous gales on all the coasts , where I met a
veteran shipmaster who said ten years ago
the storm would have mudo great havoc , but
the Herald's warning , that every paper
copies , begot caution and prudence. Many
sallots affect to tieat these with indifference ,
jet , neveithelcss , leracmbcr the predictions
and take precautions. I found that details
came in slowly and telegraphic whcs weio
woi king badly. At many points the meteoro
logical office hael to issue a foiccast without
elata from Baltic ports. Tour vessels ar
rived nt Shields. These lost all the deck
loads. At Grlmsby the Johnnno Marie , from
Honfleur to Elslnore , caught the full severity
of the gale and came In leaky for rcpaiis , re
porting a genuine hurricane. At Harwich
the Pioseidon reported having been struck
by u sea when off Tcxel during a heavy galo.
causing her to take water. The master
thinks the cargo damaged. A survey will be
held on the ship to-morrow. At Green-
ock it is reported that n coal-
laden lighter was driven ashore at
Innelton. At Liverpool a schoonci
isioported agrouuel. The master of : the
British steamer , Serugfar , arrived from New
Castle at Yumiden reporting that , twenty-
eight miles north-north-west of Yumiden
piers he spoke a Spanish steamer , with ma
chinery broken down , for Hamburg. A tug
has gone out fiom Yumiden in search other.
The name could not bo discovered on account
of a high sea running , but the vessel is prob
ably ono trading between Baicelona and Ham
burg. The London & Northwcstci n railway
company's steamer , Alcxaudiia , which left
Holihcad ut 0:40 : p. m. last night , cncoun-
tcied a most sovcio weather while off the
South Stack and in the race heavy seas
swept over her , damaging the bulwarks anil
smashing her deck erections. A number ol
Iiishlmivestcrs , deck passengers , whoweic
returning from the English hanest , suffered
terribly. Some of them wcic swept about
the deck while others w ere pitched down
into the engine loom with the result that
John Fleming , of Lavnllyroe , County Mayo ,
was crushed to death and three others were
seriously injured. Captain Goidon thctc
upon , 'cnrh'g-fiuther damage , put back intc
Holyhead , where tiid"JL d.V of the deceased
was landed nnd the three injured J'icii taker
to the Stanley hospital. Some passengers
wcro on board to catch the White Stai
steamer ut Qucenstown , nnd would have Ios1
it , only this was delayed so they oveutuallj
caught it. Twelve ft iiermcn belonging tc

Uneasiness Over Possible Frcncli
ministerial Changes.
lCop/rfy7iKSS7 | fctf JaniM Gordon Bcntifff.l
LONUOK , Oct. 27. [ New York Herale
Cable Special to the BtK. ] Some disqui
ctudo is felt in official circles at the contcmpla
tion of the probable resignation of the Grcvj
and Ilouvier ministry. True , it may be
assumed that the convention just agrcce
ujKm between the English and Fiench gov
crnmcnts is binding on both , whatcvci
changes in the ministry may take place , bu
It Is also feared that l might not stand tin
shock of a return to power of Clemcnceai
and Boulanger. The failure , fiom any cause
of the recent negotiations would bo a licav *
blow to the English ministry , but as th <
Fiench public appear Well satisfied with tin
convention there seems no good icason to ap
prebend such njcsult The fall of Houviei
could not but add greatly to the serious cle
mcnts of disturbance ahcady existing ii
Europe , ready to burst out at any mo
ment , Russia Is straining in the Eas
Franco restless , Germany irritated , Austrii
eager to i ecover her lost influence. All tin
world is familiar with the circumstance !
which tin eaten tranquility in England. /
calm survey of the whole field is nssuredli
not encouraging to the friends of peace
Should a war bieak out anywheic , the flamei
must quickly spread. ' Boulanger's icturi
would cause u tremor to run tluougli over :
court and cabinet in Europe. Fiance has al
ready had twenty-two ministers in sevcntcei
j cars and Is now apparently destined to have i
twenty-third. Some Englishmen chuckle eve ;
the Instability of government In France , no
maiking the signs of the times nearer home
and forgetting the fou changes in the minis
try here In little moro than twelve months
At that i ate Englarfd will soon bo at th
French score. I
The unionist party is about t
take a leaf out of the National League'
book. At the latfl elections the Icagu
sent a strong deputation of speaker
to their constituencies , and no doubt thi
had a great effect in turning the scale in sev
crul shaky places. The unionists now intcm
to bi ing over examples of boycotted person
to tell their stories , personally , to the Enj
llsh public. They also intend to import
number of Ulster farmers to explain thei
true position and proclaim their sentiment
regarding the Institution of an Iiish parlit
nieut in Dublin. Thus the Irish question wi
be argued out by Irishmen. Should the o *
posito faction hapixm to meet in the Bam
town there will bo w'igs on the green and a
historical parallel at last bo found to th
legend of the Kilkenny cats. Both sides hav
been very hard at work for the past fen
night , and both aio equally confident the
have made progress. Predictions must b

Marriott , Judge advocate general , has re-
timed from Cairo whet o ho has been en-
-aged in advocating the claim of Ismail
, 'asha against the Egyptian govcinment.
You may take it for granted that Maulolt
earned his fee , said to have been very heavy ,
but it would bo very Interesting to know how
much Ismail has paid to English friends and
supporters. I have heard the sum estimated
at 600,000 gone in all directions chiefly
among lawyers , but the journalists ha\o had
helrshaio. Ismail's claims tcqulrcd a good
deal of writing up. It Is not likely that this
work was done on the cheap lead
ing men nnd jomnals , of couisc , not
n the scramble. But a good many wires may
jo pulled apart from them. Ismnlls' private
account book would a lively tale unfold. Sev
eral Indian princes have come over from time
o time and their gold has also fertilized the
arid soil of Temple and Lincoln's Inn not to
mention Fleet street. That the money was
alwaja legitimately earned I need not say but
mighty llttlo was got for it by the oriental
visitors. Ismail's ' case stands pretty much
where It did bcfoio ho spent a penny but his
sons remain hopeful and their interests are
frequently pleaded In the English journals
of course from the most disinterested motive.
Dhulep Singh's son is in charge of Law
rence Ollphant , so well known in America
from his former association with Brother
Harris and his community near Buffalo.
Ollphant went to live in Palestine some tlmo
ago with gicat projects , among them , the
return of the Hebrew race. As the Hebrews
would not return to their ancestral soil
Ollphant came back. Ho always tumbles
into a good thing ; sometimes an Atlantic
Cable company , sometimes an Indian pi luce
to lead in the paths of virtue and peace. Of
late his literary effoits have been sociammcd
with mjstieism in consequence of his spit its
having obtained the upper hand that ho has
lost many of his admirers but ho has
mndo great successes , notably in starting
a small newspaper called the Owl , and
in his novel Altiora Pete , in which
two well-known New York ladles , ono now
married to an Englishman , flguic promi
nently. It is a pity the spirits have got such
n tight hold , but nothing can take away OH-
phant's great charms. No better leader
could have been found for joung Singh ,
whoso father is in Kussia vow ing vengeance
against England. Ills thicats awaken no
tenors. The Singh's themselves caio nothing
for him and ho can never wield the influence
of his terrible father , the famous Lion of
A bombshell 1ms fallen in the Baptist com
munity by the withdiawul of Mr. Spurgeon
from their union. Spurgcon'sjdissatisfuction
at the lay theology of many of bis brother
ministcis has been no scciet. He holds fast
to the rigid tenets of his church , deems any
relaxation a wrong to the chinch and Chris
tianity iiSCif. Gi ear euorts have been mnda
to smooth his susceptibilities and quiet his
scruples , hjit his conscience refused to bo
silenced , hence his withdrawal from the Bap
tist union. This will not in any way affect
his position in his own church , whcio ho
preaches such doctrines as ho pleases , un
challenged. Ho expresses a dcsiie that the
day may come when nil true Christians maybe
bo united in ono community laigcr than any
existing sect can provide for. This w ish
meets with a simpathetle response fiom
many outside of Spuigeon's church. Public
approval follows his course , but whether It
did or not would make no difference to Spur
geon , who would go to the stake to mou ow
for what he believes is right.
It looks very much ns if Coquelin wcro not
going to make a great hit in London. His
talents are uppieciatcd , but the plays thus
for produced don't strike the fancy of the
English public. Moreover , the absence of an
attractive leading lady , and the generally in
different quality of the company , toll heavy
against Coqucltn. In Don desar ho may
excite greater interest , but at piescnt , the
fact must bo i ecorded that the new season
riench plays have not opened bo biilliuntly
as was anticipated.
Prince Krapotkino's Views.
[ Cojii/i fy/it / JSS7 / / / James Coixlon llcnnett. ]
Puns , ( via Havre ) , Oct. 27. [ Now York
Herald Cable Special to thoBtt. ] Piinco
Kiapotkino , the gieat nihilistic king , wioto n
long letter from Harrows , England , to the
editor of the Herald's European edition , mak
ing a stiri ing appeal on behalf of the Chicago
anarchists that makes a sensation in political
circles. The Figaro , Intransigient ami the
Cri du Peuplo all publish extracts from
Prince Kropotkine's letter. The pi inco wntcg
that the Chicago sentence indicates that the
contest going on is to make an Ameiican
revolution more acute and brutal than ever
took place In Euiopo. The very first pages
of its history open with an act of retaliation
of the worst kind. Only thirst for retaliation
and nothing else can explain , in fact , the
Chicago sentence "I have carefully read the
minutes of the tiia.1 and have weighed Indict
ments of evidenco"sa\s the princo"nnd I do
not hesitate to aft Inn that a parallel to the sen
tence may bo found in Europe only in the re
taliation sentence pronounced by the couit-
martial after the defeat of the Pai is commune
of 1871 , unless wo go so far back ns during
the ten or of the restored Bourbons of 1815 ,
On this account I am fully In accordance
with the Paris municipal und Seine general
councils in the memoirs they addressed tc
the American ambassador on behalf of the
condemned Chicago anarchists. But the Chicago
cage court had not even the excuse of the
Versailles court-martial , namely , the excite
mcnt of passion which follows a civil wai
after a great national defeat. It Is obvious
first , that seven men could not throw * one
single bomb. It is evident , moreover , and 11
has been proved , that sevcial of them wen
not picscnt at the Haj market meeting while
others left before the police took te
their infuriated charges. Moro thar
that , a the state's counsel himself doei
not maintain that any of the seven did throw
the bomb. Ho accuses , of that act , somr
other person who is not In court. Only Spies
is accused of having given a match to lighl
the fuse of the bomb , but the only man to give
that testimony Is a certain Gllmer , whoso bae
reputation for truth and veracity has beer
sworn to by no less than ten persons , semi
of them largo property holders who had llvce
in the sumo liouso with him and who rccog
nizod himself as having received money fron
police. " The pi Ince thus concludes : "Aftoi
the Haymnrkct conflict the legislative powon
of Illinois have promulgated a law agalns
keeping explosives nnd they are going ti
promulgate another law , a conspiracy law
According to this latter , any illegal act
however done , for legal purposes will bo con
sidercd as criminal. It means thus to tear t <
pjcccs ono of the most fundamental article
of the constitution and , inoi cover , any incite
rnenttowaidsrcooitlng to an illegal coursi
will bo considered as criminal and Breads
reads- the future law. It' needs note
to bo proved' ( hat , the person' guilt ;
of such an net hnd read the papers or listened
o the speeches which Incited to commit It.
That means , of course , the eventual abolition
of any liberty of speech and writing. Even
ho French law requires direct connection
ictwccn the Inciting in speech and writing
or print nnd the net committed. But the new
Illnots law docs not much Interest mo In
tself and what I wish to point out
s mcicly this ; "Tho seven Chicago
cage anaichists have been condemned
0 death In accordance with that schema of
nw which was not law In 1S7G and Is not law
ct. The proposed law icsulted from the
Chicago ti lal and this future law has been
applied to the seven condemned anarchists.
