Cable Special to the Hrr. ] 'iho second
end of Dei ember is again destined
to go down in bistoiy as a ( lav
memoiablo in the annals of Pi ante. At
nn eaily hour this mot ning thousands of
Puilslans Unonged to the PI ice do la Con-
cotdo and peidied themselves like c'tows on
the benches and stone balustiadcs beneath
the statues Stinssboutg , L-vons and Mar
seilles. At I o'clock Genci.il Soussicr and
bis aide dc camp lode slowly down the
Champs Hljsces , a sqtiudion of tlio guide
lojmhlicuiiio cheval dealing the giound. The
eiowd vvns peifectly good natuied , shouting
"A bus Pel i yl"
At 2 o'clock the deputies all thtonged Into
the Palais Houibon like sthoolbojs , quid 10-
publlc.ilno on foot funning burners to enable
them to push thiough. Inside tlie ehinnbei
itself the hccno was vorj'impiessive. Hun
dreds of ladles filled the gnlleiies. In tlio
diplomatic logo weio Mr. MoLuuo , Count
Munstei mid nil the attaches. M. Ploquct ,
ut u ( pun ttr past 2 o'clock , brought his ivoiy
hammer down with a vvhiiik and in a stcnto-
lian voice shouted :
"I invite jou to piescivp thomost piofound
silence out of icspcct for join selves and for
the nation that jou i epic-sent. "
All the deputies at once became as still as
mice and Floquct lead slowlj' and distinctly
the president's message. When bo caino to
the pusnugo "Mon devoir et mon droit scr-
iilent do icsistet , " thoio W'us a loud muimcr
of dlsappiobiition. The i est of the message
was listened to in told silence I happened
to bo seated in the galleij- next to the Mar
quis do Heanvoir , who is the official tcpio-
sentulivo of the ComtodoP.nis Do Hcau-
vuir exclaimed us soon as the leading of tlio
message ended :
' I'll , bitnoila. . It is a vet j dignified mes
sage and is as thoiough ndenunciation of the
icpubllo as could have been wiitten bj'the
most reactionaiy coiibciv.itivo. "
M , Clovis Hugucs , the excitable deputy
fiom Marseilles , exclaimed , in an undei-
tone : "Oil , II est bitn moit inuintcnnnt. "
Evoijbody then t nulled Into tlio lobbies to
discuss tlio chances of candidates at the Vci-
sailles congicss to moilow and the wildest
chattel Ing and hullabaloo ensued. At the
coiner lobby , near the statue of Liocoon ,
Loid Kundolph stood cugoilj' discussing the
situation with Ploquct
At II o'clock I found the eiowds outside the
Palais Houibon being diiven off by detach
ments of soldieis mid police , the eiowd shout
ing nlvvujs , "Abas Peiij ! " "Moht a
The mob was a good naturcd one and sang
tbo "Mmsollles" and "Carmagnole. " Mean
while U few bundled hot-headed joungsteis
inmchcd fiom the Place do la Concorde
down the avenue Uivoli to the Hotel dtt
vLouvic , wheio Hoiilangcr lives , singing
"Kovcnantdola Kcvuo" and bowling out
"Vivo Houlungerl" but Houlanger had al-
icady quietly loft Pans bj garo d'Oi leans
for Cleimoiit-Poiiand to letako' command
of his thiitcenth in my coips. At
the Hotel do Villu wcikmpii stood
about In gionps , but offei eel no tin eat or 10-
slstance to the tioops At 5 o'clock , however -
over , gangs of about six bundled joungsteis
mid gamins headed by Cumelin.it , Quoicj
and Haslj- , with led , white mid blue banncis ,
tame mm thing over the Pont do la Concoido ,
singing "Cinimignolo , " and United down the
Hue Hlvoli en Kouto for the Hotel
do Villo When they got opposite
the eimcsti Ittn statue of Joanne
d'Aro a squndion of gnaids repubbcuino
f011 ed u passage , The emoutieis tiled to
lush thiough the tanks , and the oflicci indo
command teceived the but of a cigar in the
diook that some mischievous gavtoeho hud
thrown at him. Tlio officer dtow his saber ,
tind as ho did so a dozen stones wci 0 tinow a
at soldieis , several of them sinking the hi ass
helmets with a sound like a spoon dioppcd
into tin empty saucepan. The gaulo republi-
toino then , at the woidof command , diew
their sabtes and n tiuinpet sounded the
chaigo. Tlio tioopois , on lulg-j horses , ttotted
and then gallojied at the eiowd , tiding
down ten or twenty of them and
hltUnirtight and left with the flat of sables
Hasley himself was bit in the jaw by a sabto
and fell on the pa\ement howling with i.ige.
The eiowd in live minutes melted nwuy , leav
ing no dace behind it except a dozen men
and bojs sllghtlj biuiseiland limping about
Almost at the same moment two similar
lows took place on the place do la
Concoidu and tile Hojale , the mob
dlsnppcaiing like magic. Hut in the
tuo Kojitlo si'iiinm.igo a hot-headed I
joungstor ( lied a tovoher ut the euv.ili.v.
The ball stuukouo of the soldieis on the hel
met. This vuis followed bj a volley of stones ,
the oflli or In command being hit on the cheek
and the i ight ej o w ifli a stone The ti umpet
at once bounded a chatgo and tiot , and the
rue Uoyalo w as sw opt clear of all the crow d
na if with u biooni.
Suddenlv another gang of t evolutionists
appealed opposite the Muddoino. Throe or
four icvolver shots weio Hied bj them at the
troops. One of these shots bit the glazed
hat of a ooeher dtiving a jellow cab
number 7720. This cochor , whoso
name is Paul Viitor , tinned bis horses at the
ctowd , and , whip in hand , shouting featful
oaths , this Jehu diovo full tilt at the crowd ,
i mining over an old woman , and the cab ,
driving up against a lamp post , tuinod o\ oren
on its side Tlio ctowd smashed the tab to
pieces , but the cabman , whose whip was
toin fiom his band , seized ulaigowicndi
that all Pat islnn cabmen carry under their
box beat , and wounded six people on the head
with It , knocking two senseless. Several moio
vollojs of htonosand a fowhuimlebsievolver
shots wore Hied ut the tioops. The cavalry
clnngcd again , leaping over the cab , and at
the foot of the steps of tlio Madeleine about
llfty persons weio wounded bv kicks from

A few tovolvcr shots vTC' * also filed at the

The Ijincoln Council Cnse.
WisiiisoTov , Deo. 2. [ Special Telegiam
to the Hi r.i The supreme court has
granted a rule i etui liable on December 12 , in
the Lincoln council case.
The decision was announced by Chief Jus
tice Waite and was vei bid. He suit ! : "Wo
have decided to grunt uiulo in the applica
tion fiom Lincoln , Neb , made bj' Andiow J.
Savvjer andothcts for a vvnt of habeas cor
pus , but do j ou pi efer u rule or n wi it of ha
beas coipus I" addtessing Mr. Lambcitson ,
w ho stood at the bar ,
" 1 pi efer a iule , " was the teplj' .
"When shall it bo i etui liable i" the chief
"I can miange , " said Mi. Lumbcrtson , "to
have it ictinliable at once I will telegraph
the mmshal. "
"Wo weic thinking of making it t etui liable
on December 111. "
"That Is a longer time , " said Mr. Lambert-
son , "than is ncccssaij' . I should saj the
bth would give ample time. "
"We'll make it the 12th , " suid Justice Mil
"On the Uth thoiulo will bo returnable , "
said the chief justice. "Then If we deem it
advisable , the date can bo changed to suit
"Can j on not i olcaso the pi isonci s on baili"
inquned Mr. Lambcitson. "
"No , " said the chief justice , "we could not
do that If jou dosiio , howevci , wo will
grant j'ou a wi it. "
"No , I picfer u ittle"replied Mr. Lambeit
son , "but I w ant to get these men out of jail
as soon as possible. "
"The piisoneis mo in the charge of the
United States maishal , " intciposed Justice
Miller , "and I suppose they aio not buffer-
"Probably not suffering , but they do not
want to languish by the grate anj' longer
than is absolutelj' necessary , " icspondcd Mr.
Again the chief justice said the piisoneis
could not bo icleased on bail. Ho added :
"Now , Mr. Lambertson , if jou conclude that
jou would picfci a vvnt of habeas coipus toi |
iule , wo will giant H. "
Mr. Lambcitson did not desire that , as the
expense of biingmg the piisoneishcie would
be considerable and the journey would be no
moio pleasant than to remain where thej'urc.
If a wilt of habeas corpus was granted the
piisoneis would in poison be bi ought before
the court heic , when the argument for iclief
would bo made in their presence. The mlo
simplj' icquircs the United States marshal to
show cause vvhj the piisoneis aic held and
the argument will take place without the
picscnco of the piisoncrs heie , thus saving
the expense of their tiip. Mi.
Lambcitson believes that if Judge
Hrcwer had been piescnt to-daj' and
heai d tbo dialogue above outlined , that he
would have been willing to reduce the mi-
piisonmcnt of the pt isonci s to simple cus
todj of the United States maishal Hobo
licvedalso that the time for loturning tbo
nilowould be i educed to the 7th 01 bth , and
ho is vcij' favoiablj' nnpiesbcd with the turn
the case has taken. Mr. Lainbcitson's biief
is spoken of as a model of tetseness and
sttong in its mgumcnt.
Should the United States court of Ncbiaska
icfuse to admit the Lincoln pilsoncrs to bail ,
Mr. Lainbei taott Will to-moiiow ask the su
piemceouit of the United States to issue a
w t it of habeas coi pus , which w ill bung them
heio. Once here , they will bo icleased on
bail , as Chief Justice Waite has so stated.
Mr. Lambeitson , Senator Paddock and Hep-
lescntativo McShanc mid othcis in Washing
ton expect the couit in Nebuiska to admit
he piiscr0' ' s to bail. The couit bcie to day
expi cssccl gi cat sui pi iso \i\vr \ 'paming ' that
ho Lincoln men wore actually in jail. Jus
tice field said to Mr. Lambei tbon : "These
n"ii mo onlj' nominallv in the eustodj' of the
inaishal , mo tboj' not I"
"No , indeed , " leplied Mr. Lambcitson ,
'they mo actually m jail , and aio kept in
close confinement. When thev w 01 o 01 del oil
n the custody of the maishal the couit di-
ictted that they should bo confined in jail
Thut mount confinement for all the vvotds
When Mr. Lambcrtson asked Chief Justice
Waitc to admit the piisoneis to bail the latter
leplied : "Wo huvo no authoiity to admit
them to bail unless the-j' aio before us. If
jou want it wo will issue a writ bunging
them heio and then wo may admit them to
"No , " leplied Mr. Lambcitson , "I picfer
to save the expense their coming heio would
make , cspcciallj'when thev can just as well
be admitted to bail at Omaha. "
"Peihups , " said Justice Miller , "that the
eouit at Omaha will icleaso them on bail
when it loams that wo have issued nwiit
and mo willing to giant avviit of habeas
After such plain talk us this talk which
means u suggestion that the piisoners ought
to be on bail the Ncbiaska people and all
who aio familiar w itli today's pioceedings
anticipate thut the couit bus all cad j admitted
the piisoneis to bail.
Hofoio asking for u wilt of habeas corpus
to-moriow , in tlio event tbo touit at Omaha
does not admit the piisoiiets to bail , Mr.
Lmnbcitson will propose to deposit a bond
hero in any sum which may bo named for the
bail of the prisoners , thus making unneces
sary their trip to Washington.
Ueprescntutivo McShuno , who is very in
dignant at their impiisonmcnt , is anxious to
suppl.v anj'bond the court muv lequire. It
is sate to piedict that the piisoneis will not
be In jail long ,
Mr. Lamboitson met Judge Dillon , of Now
Yoik , in the snptemo couit loom to day and
the judge , who is the highest authority in the
tommy on tha subject of habeas coi pus ,
having w ritten stundaid decisions on it , ox-
pi ess'ed gic.it binpjiso thut tno Lincoln men
weio in Jutland thut in fuct they hud been
lined for contempt. Judge Dillon is high
uuthoiityon the question of fcdcial juiis-
etiction I'U'l ho declined that the fedei al coin t
had no light to attempt anj' inteifoience. as
it did at Lincoln. Ho is of tbo decided
opinion that Mr. Lambeitson has uliendj'
won hU case. The supiemo couit of the
United States bus done evcijthlng asked
except to flbail , which , it s.ijs ,
it has no iicht to do unless
the piisoneis will como bcic. Then thej'
will bo within ioaeb. Mr. Lnmbertson is lu
constant anticipation of the announcement
fiom Omahu , that the piisoneis ate out of
Jail , and ho expects to have . \ ictuinoftho
i ulo in time to get a healing befoto Decem

Mr. Lambcitson received a te'ojrram fiom
Omahu to nlcht , stating that the couit theio
bad intimated that It would admit the prison-
01 b to bail ujKin the iccommendatlon of the
biipierne couit bete , and to-moirow ho will

Mr. Lambeitson and ConejC'sninn Mo-

of his forthcoming annual message to con-
gioss. It was fully anfl ftcoly discussed for
nearly four houis and will again bo sub
mitted on Friday to the cabinet in the form
in which It will be sent to congiess. Mean-
w bile speculation is t ifo as to the contents of
what will probably bo one of the longest
ofHcial documents ever1 wiittcn by Cleve

approximate ' 22OJK ) welds Unusual pre
cautions seem to huvo been takan to prevent
Its publication bcfototho pioper timo. It

is asccttaincd that Ua\aid's ' department will
ubsoib the lion's share of the message. Ho
vvirt announce In the flist place
cither the icsult of the labois of
the Jlsherles commission or the fact that
they mo still at work. Tlieie is an impres
sion pi availing today that the commission
will sit for the lust time on Saturduj' next. It
is based upon the icpoit that one of the Ca
nadian commlssioncts asserted atone of the
dinneis iccontlj' given to them that all of the
commissioners , Chambcilain Included , will
cat their Clnistmas dinners at homo. It in
dicates , too , that the negotiation of n now

said to bo favoied bj'.Uavaid , who js icpic-

able to announce in bis message is that the
commission has agreed upon an intciprcta-
tion of the treaty of 1818 Ho will not allude
to the appointment of Angel and Putnam ,
"negotiatois , " nor is it expected that
the names of lUiose two gentlemen

Dickcnson was tircjd and dibindmed to talk
