TEARFUL SCENES IN COURT.

Ohio Penitentiary nt
, llnrpcr Convicted.
CINCINNATI , Dec. 13. The greatest oroad
yet gathered in the corridors of the United
States court room , assembled this morning
long before tba time for the assembling of
the court. At 10 o'clock .ludgo Sage appeared
alone , the court was opened and n few min
utes later the Jury filed in. As soon as they
were seated Judge Sago nskcd if
they had agreed upon their ver
dict , mid tlio foi uman said they
had. The Judge directed the clerk to
received it. At this point Blackburn called
the court's attention to the absence of the
defendant. ' 'Let him be brought in , " said
the judge. In two minutes the marshal en-
tcied followed by Harper , looking pale mid
concerned. Behind him came his wife ami
her sister. When they were seated the clerk
took the sealed envelope inclosing the sen
tence , tore it open and lead the fatal words :
"Wej the. Jury , find the defendant guilty us
charged in the Indictment. " This meant
guilty on all thiity-thrco counts left
for the Jury to act upon. Hlack-
burn moved the arrest of Judgment ,
which the coin t Instantly overruled. Then
tlie district attorney , Burnett , moved for im
mediate senteni'o and that the sentence be
cumulative , .ludgo Sago overruled the mo
tion and asked if the defendant had anything
to say before the sentence was pronounced
upon him. Blackburn rose and said thut the
defendant wished to speak thiough him , and
say that ho. had nothing to add to what had
been said , ovoept to thank the court for Its
fair ami linJMrtial treatment , nnd
to ask that the couit be us merci
ful as circumstances and law would
permit. At 10:3."i : the court directed Harper
to stand up. Thu strong nnm stood erect
with teais coursing do\\n his cheeks , but
no other sign of of emotion. Behind his
chair with bowed head sat his wife in agony
that hud no better manifestation than wring
ing of her hands. The court recited the
usual form of sentence , saying the evidence
left no doubt of thu dutnndant's guilt , and
that the offense Mnoi-itcd tlio highest
penalty of the law , which the
couit would now impose. Ten years
in the Ohio penitentiary and that the nuushal
convey him thither at once.
Harper sat down , turning to his wife their
lips met , her hands went around his neck ,
ills arms encompassed her. The silence in
the court room was awful : The jurors wept.
Women and men all over the court room
were in tears. Tlie silence was broken by
Blackburn making n last request of
the couit , that was that the
order for immediate imprisonment be
suspended , as there was much business to bo
attended to by Harper in which his wife was
closely concerned , and it would bo cxcceel-
ingly difficult to attend to it unless Harper
could remain here for a few days. .ludgo
Sago said there would bo an opportunity for
his wife to sco him nt Columbus mid ho repeated -
peate-d the order to the nuushal to convey
him thither to-day.
1 he jury was then discharged , and the
marshal conducted the defendant to tie |
marshal's ofllce. i
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Harper was
taken to the penitentiary at Columbus.

Dr.Nvr.it , Cor. , Dec3 , ; [ Special Telegram
to the Bur. . ] The excitement at Denver and
the eastern portion f the state over the
bloody work of \\\o \ \ \ desperado Newt Vorco
during the pas\fow diys , has reached a fever
heat. Since hl escapade at Deer Trull a few
days since , whop ho .dangerously wounded
Deputy Shci Iff Cuntley , particulars of which
wore wired the Br.K , Voroc has been n fugi
tive. After leaving Doer Trail ho went to
leaver Itnnch * whcro" lie stole a horse mid
liiick for the open prairie. The officers
clng in i-losc pursuit , ho made but few stops ,
ut these wore at ranches which Intervened
etwccn the Mill Iron nnd Cuttle company's
ropcrty nnd the Brocdcimnu place. Finally
Is trail was struck , and jestcrday morning
owns seen making direct for the "L. H.
J. " dug out. This place ho i cached late
the afternoon , Deputy Slier-
llolllngsworth ami his men
vcrc In hot pwsuM , so close in fact , that
vhen Vorco disappeared in the dug-out , the
lorse which he had been riding was sei/ed by
lollingsworth. Vorco still retained his
voapons. The dug-out Is a portion of a
astily erected structure about thirty feel in
cngth cut Into the side of a knoll and within
i few feet of Muddy creek. The south por-
lon is occupied by .tho man us n kitchen or
louse proper. A partition seperatcs this
rom the dug-out und is filled up with bunks
nto .which .tho men roll for sleep und rest.
L'hu officers culled upon Voreo to como out
md surrender , but receiving no reply stir-
oundi'd thu place , thinking this wus the
Busiest way to secure their roan. Vorco had
evidently punched * y hqjtftn the side of the
lug-out for no sooneiti ! f the posse como
ivithln range than th Almrp crack of n rillu
vus heard and Gay Hollingsworth , brother of
he deputy , rolled down the bank of the creek a
As the desperado fired the officers returned
t , and for several minutes heavy firing wi.s
( opt up. The body of the dead officer was
e'covered , and will be shipped to Browning ,
111. , to-morrow. TcH'grams were at once
sent to Denver for assistance , and messengers
started for different ranches to get ull thu uid
tossiblo , witli the determination of capturing
Vonee dead or nlivo. Four deputies loft
icro to-night , to bo Joined by four others at
Deer Trail , and if they find it impossible to
got Vorco to surrender , un attempt will bo
nadu to se-t the dug out on tire mid burn him
out. While the officers were watching the
| ilace this afternoon u man came out of the
rear door und sturtedtowm-dsCorona. After
lie hud gone a quarter of u mile hu was over
taken by un officer , who ee > voreel him with a
Winchester und cominanded him to halt and
: ell his business. The man , who o numo was
Frost , plcadeel to bo allowed to go
on saying he was on his way to get a physi
cian for Vorce , who hud his thigh badly shut-
tei cd in tliu fight last night and was unable to
stand or ride. Ho also stated that the dug
out in which thu outlaw had taken refuge was
occupied by Mr. mid Mrs. Foster , who were
compelled to admit Vc-rco and four compan
ions who came with him. They have about
two weeks' supply of provisions and the
chances of starving them out arc discourag
ing. Thu ranchmen are determined to riel
Iho country of this gang of horse and cattle
thieves which Vorce toads. Ho , however , is
so securely barricaded that , unless ho con
sents to surrender , his capture without more
bloodshed is extremcydoubtful. )

I wus not John's mistake that ho was born
beyond the confines of the Emerald Isle. I

Almost each worel was emphasi/ed by
cheers but as the "big man" fairly looked up
Hid out like a Venetian statue suddenly seen
, n n misty picture by Turner , tlie cheers
row stentorian amid cries of "Hurrah lor
America , " and "Tho Hoston Boy Forever. "
The delight manifested is best expressed by
lie word yells. These scorned to stagger
Sullivan. They appeared to bo blows upon
lis orators trap. Hut recovering himself , ho
thus struck out boldly with his rhetoric :
"Ladies and Gentlemen : I thank you
very heartily for this unexpected kind of a
reception. 1 hope I shall always deserve it.
My parents were of this country. I have al
ways tried to bo a chip of the old block. I
have the same sentiments toward Ireland
which you have. I do not come to boast , but
: eave you to judge for yourselves. After this
Irish tour 1 shall go back to Knglund
to prepare to meet the best man it
: ms to bring against me. I hope
before I revisit you the Englishman and I
shall meet Inside a twenty-four foot , ring and
; et the public Judge which is the better man.
If ho beats me this sentence was greeted
with a chorus of "never , never" I shall still
extend him the right hand of fellowship. If
I beat him" shall expect the same. "
This brought forth more cheers and cries
such us "An1 you will John , darling. "
Mr. Phillips , his backer , was then Intro
duced , whoso genial looks induced fresh
cheers for the manager , with whom , on his
simply bowing his thanks , several on the
platform heartily shook hands of welcome
There were then some amateur contests as
appetizers for the piece do resistance to fol

Weinas , commander of the forces in Ireland ,
entered uccoinpanicel by Cuutain Orr , adju

of his staff , which evoked alternative hisses ,
boo-hos and huzias , according to the feelings
of the partisans in the audience , but all in a
chaffing spirit. This , however , was stopped
by polite Mr. Phillips , who , with Mr.
Gallagher , then in sight of the audience ,
introduced Sullivan to the prince commander ,
who , following the example of the Prince of
Wales , shook Sullivan heartily by the hand
and accompanied tlio latter to the dressing-
room. There the prince commander told
Sullivan IIQ had sedulously followed the lat-
tcr's record ami it was a pleasure to meet
the owner of it and to wish him good luck in

LONDON , Dec. 12. [ New York Herald
Cablu Special to the Hun. ] The contro
versy whether Lord Lyons lived us well as
died n Catholic , or wus unduly proselyted ,
having reached thu press here , both secular
and religious , I sought tills morning Father
Godwin at Brompton oratory , a friend of the
Duke of Norfolk , und nil the Howard family.
He was shown copies of thu European edi
tion wherein Chaplain Gill of the British
embassy had raised thu question. After
reading these Father ( Jill impressively said :
"I know Lorel Lyons well , and also his sister -
tor , mother , the present Duke of Norfolk and
all the Howard family. Lord Lyons has been
a protostunt ull bis long life until
within the present your. Ho boo.imo
a convert to Catholicism , but what
wonder ! One of his sister's children ,
Lady Minim Charlotte Howard , is a nun , mid
another , Lady Etheldra Howard , Is a sister
of charity. His sister became a Catholic
xnvarel her end , and on her death bed , not
long ago , had a serious interview with him
urging him to obtain that peace In the
'hurcli which she enjoyed. I know this pro-
luccd a great effect on his mind , and he
) egan to study our faith and attend our
church. During thu last two months ho
ilmost dally attended mass publicly , either
it the Warwick street or Corpus Christ !
churches. His nieces , tlio Ladies How
ard , were also his Instruotors in
our tenets. When the sublect of
ing formally received into our
church was broached to him a few weeks bo-
foru his stioku of paralysis , ho said , with a
reverent modesty : ' 1 fear I am not good
enou'ghyct for that.1 But If he had lived in
health a few weeks longer , that blessed event
would have publicly occurred. I was called
to thu Norfolk house at thu timu thu stroke
llrst occuircd. I heard his secretary and
friend , Mr. Sheffield , ask him would ho like
to sec the Catholic bishop of Southwark. He
was then speechless from the stroke , but
sensible , and I saw him nod an assent. When
the bishop nrriveel wo all "left them alone.
The prolutu propouneled many questions as to
the faith mid feeling , to which ho responded
by intelligent looks and ufllrmtivu nods.
Shortly afterwards we wore summoned back ,
anil I assisted the bishop in n conditional bap
tism of Lord Lyons. I nm satisfied thut he
wus sensible of all that occurred. I am sur
prised at the duubt uxprSsscd for he went to
muss regularly. Tills w.is first fully known
by a housemaid of thu Norfolk house recog
nizing him umong the kneeling worshippers ,
rich und poor alike , at the Warwick street
Your correspondent next sought Father
Pin-cell , resident priest in charge of Coi pus
Christ ! chapel , Covcnt garden. Ho said :
"Each Sunday that Lord Lyons was in Lon
don after ho quilted Paris ho came hero at 10.
a. m. to low mass. The first I knew of
this was' from the man who took
charge of the offertory coming to mo with
reference to an elderly gentleman placing a
sovereign In tlio bean unusual incident for
a chuich mainly ficquontcd in this district by
humbler classes. The next time hu came ho
was pointed out to another father , who
recognised him as Lent Lyons. Each Sunday
ho left us the sarnc practical proof ot his at
tendance bjkphicing a sovereign in the poor
box. llo camu and went unobtrusively and
unattended nnd without making himself
known. On the day of his death the two
Ladies Howard , his nieces , came here asking
our prayers for him , and saying how
gratified they were that ho had attended
mass. 1 have a letter to the same effect from
the Duke of Norfolk. It seems a shnmo that
some newspapers should say wo Catholics
look advantage of Lord Lyons' unconscious
state to proselyte him. I feel cortuin ho had
been a Catholic believer long before his ill
ness. 1 remember being at the Irish cottage
in Paris at the time of tliu Jesuit expulsion ,
when Lord Lyons said if any of them wanted
a home they could como to his house and find
it. Certainly these und other matters seem
to prove old sympathies with Catholics as u
ground work of his later faith.

Weir drew Hi.st blood in thu first round ,

Tlio building adjoining , occupied by Gimbcl

burning , and the general offices ol the Chl-
oago , Hurlingtcin t Quincy railroad , and the
enormous now building of Marshall , Fold &

wind was blowing from the southwest and
myriads of large , ihiming cinders were car
ried as far ii the north side of the river at
Clark street , dropping in great quantities
about the city anil county buildings. For a
time it was feared that the fire would con
sume the entire square to the south and east
