The chief clerk of the quartcrmastcr-geu

i "This department has no knowledge what
ever of the action of the board. It has never
been brought to the attention of the quaKor-
mnstor-genoral , and whatever action is taken
will bo taken solely by the secretary of war.
Of course , after hu renders his decision It

VTOUMW'T TAKE IT ON A. flOLD PLATTEll.
It has been frequently asserted In political
circles hero thai-President Harrison Intends
to offer the vacancy on the supreme court
bench to Hon. Walter Q. Grcsham , now of
Illinois. Close personal and political friends
of Judge Grcshaui , hnwovor , Bay that no
would not take that position nr any other In
the gift of the administration if it should bo
offered him on a golden platter. The fact is ,
thcso gentlemen do not want to sco their
friend and favorite placed In any position
where ho would bo practically shelved awya
from higher political honors. Tnoro is no
authentic ! reason to bollovo that President
Harrison over contemplated tendering the
place to Mr. Grcsham , who will , without
doubt , try conclusions with nil other
comers for the presidential nomination
in 1803. Mr. Grcsham has had some of his
political friends hero recently , and It is un
derstood that they have been hunting for the
reported disgruntled republicans with the
idea of forming a combination with them In
the interest of their friends . for the next
republican convention for the presidency.
As far as co * do learned they have had but
llttlo success in this quest. The disgruntled
republicans , of suQlciont Importance' to beef
of value , have failed to materialize , and it is
only among a few anxious seekers for placca
who have been unable to jot at the crib up to
the present tlrno that the least growling is
There is qulto a commotion in Nebraska
circles to-day over the president's announce
ment of the appointments for the land of-
llccs in Utah. It is known that Mr. Hall , of
southeastern Nebraska , was indorsed by
Senator Mauderson for ono of theao places ,
and the statement was made bcforo congress
adjourned that _ Mr. Ball was slated for
cither register or receiver at Salt Lake.
The president was quite determined that
Ball should have ono of the Oklahoma land
oflicus , In order perhaps to let Sounders infer
for commissioner in Utah , but the delegation
named Roberts , of David City , ana this
was supposed to have slated Hall
for a land ofllco in Utah , as
Hall was ono of the president's especial
friends. The query now is , what will ho defer
for him ? Thus far the delegation has Egan
for the Chilian mission , erroneously charged
toNobraska.it scorns ; Captain Stidgcr , ot
Or nnd Island , for special land agent , located
in New Mexico , at ? 1SO ( ) per annum : Pick-
eroll , of Beatrice , special agent of the agri
cultural department at $ . ' 1.000 per annum ;
Harding , of Oakland , in the public printing
ofllco ut $1,000 ; Michael , of Missouri ,
in the printing ofllco , at $1,800 ; Slaugh
ter for United States marshal , Peters for
collector , Qillcspio for register at O'Neill ,
and probably Ashley , of Burt county , for
agent of the Winnobagoes ,
nrn on fllo with the secretary of the interior
department against Agent Warner , of thq
Winnobags reservation , and charges are also
on fllo against the register of the land ofllce
at Cluaron. and the outlook now is
th'at the administration will not hesitate
to remove the register and receiver there if
nny reasonable ground exists , especially in
the face of the determined attitude of demo
cratic ofllclals generally to hangon under re
publican rule. The democratic friends here
of the Chadron land ofllccrs are advising
these oOldals to resign to save themselves
from the political disgrace of a removal.

A Scnsatlonnl Day.
CHICAGO , June 11. It was given out at
an cnrly hour this morning that James
Moron , a driver in tho'employ of the ice
firm of McGlnnls & Moran , of Lake VIew ,
was arrested late last night , and is hold as n
witness In the Crouln case. It is alleged
that on the evening of Dr. Cronin'a disap
pearance Moran , in company with another
man. was seen In the vicinity of the Carlson
In the Cronln Inquest this morning , John
O. Garrlty , a saloonkeeper , testified that ho
was acquainted with Detective Coughlln ,
now under indictment for complicity in the as
sassination. Witness declared that Coughlln
came to him and said ho wanted to hlro a
tough character known as "Major" Samp
son , to slug a man. Witness told Sampson
about it , and a few days later Sampson told
him ( Garrlty ) that the man Coughlln wanted
slugged was Dr. Cronm. Ho wanted him
slugged with a base ball bat and disfigured
for life. If it killed him It wouldn't make
much difference. ,
J. D. Haggerty , railroad clerk , gave most
Important testimony thlo morning. After
the trial of Dr. Cronln , ho said Alexander
Sullivan told him that Dr. Cronln was a
scoundrel and a menace to the Irish cause.
IIS was the Impression ot the witness that
Sullivan was trying to express the opinion
that Cronln should bo exterminated. The
witness was of the same-opinion at that time.
About that tinm a circular had been issued
saying that many Scotland Yard detectives
had left England for America to try and flnd
out some of the secrets of the order and
every person who was a member was on the
lookout for informers. All that time Sulli
van was not aloao in his opinion. LO Caron ,
who was a friend of Alexander Sullivan ,
was a member of the committee which tried
Dr. Cronm. Ho was Introduced.to the wit
ness by Sullivan at the trial as a man worthy
of-conlidcnco in the Irish cause. Ho was
opposed to Dr. Cronin at the time on account
of the statements of Alexander Sullivan.
At the afternoon session a number of wit
nesses were examined'without developing
anything of importance. Chief of Police
Hubbard was sworn and told of an interview
which ho had had with \Voodruff , the liorso
thief. Hubbard asked him what ho knew of
the : Cronln matter and if ho really was the
ono who drove the trunk from the Carlson
cottage. Woodruff said-he was , and ho then
described the cottage.
"Ho said , " continued the chief , "ho took
the trunk about midnight on May 4. Ho had
been given $25 by two men the day before to
do the job. At 11:20 : p. m. on May 4 , two
meni according to agreement , rapped on the
door of DInan's stable. Ho opened the door
and lot out the horse with raps on its feet
and hitched it to a wagon. They then drove
to within ono hundred feet of the Carlson
cottage. Ho was then told to wait and the
two men loft him and wont Into tba cottage.
They 1t 1 remained there five minutes and then
beckoned him to drive up. Ho did so , and
two men , King and Fairburn , and a third
man came out with a heavy trunk.
The third man was R. O. Sullivan. When
dt the t trunk was put in the wagon Sullivan re
turned to the house. Woodruff , with King
and Fairburn , drove on Lincoln avenue to
Fullerton avenue , thence to Lincoln pork.
The men Intended to take the trunk and its
contents in a boat out on the lake and sink
them t , but owing to the bright nlghtand the
presence I of strangers , they changed their
minds and drove back. When they reached
the 1t t man-hole on Fifty-ninth street they tried
to 1I 1 dumo the trunk into it , but falling they
knocked 1I I the trunk openhaving lost the key ,
and I took the body from It and throw it into
the I man-hole. Woodruff was then told to
drive ( off. "
The chief was askedin regard to the
grounds on which McDonald and Mnronoy
were arrested in New York to-dny. With
regard to the man McDonald , who seems to
bo the most important of the two prisoners ,
Hubbard said :
"VVo attach no great Importance to the ar
rest , as all the follow has to do with the case ,
so far as wo know , Is this : Ho is a well
known Now Yorit crook , nnd was absent
from Now York at the time of the murder ,
and wo think ho was hero , but wo don't know
yet. Ho can not or will not tell where ho
was on May 4 , but that doesn't prove ho mur
dered Crouin or had anything to do with the
"It is learned that the Carlsons can ident
ify him as the man who rented the cottagol"
"Bah , sheer nonsense. "
' And that ho was , lu nil probability , the
man who drove the doctor away ! "
OTho chief's reply.though inolegentwasthe
expressive ; "Hats ! "
Luke Dillon , of Philadelphia , on whoso In
formation the arrests wore made , declined to
say on what grounds.
State's Attorney Longeneckor would talk ,
however , if Dillon would not.
"The men are arrested and there is noth
ing to conceal now. Maronoy is the man who
is suspected of driving the doctor from the
ofllco to the Carlson cottage. About the other
man I don't Know so much , but wo expect to
prove ho was In the conspiracy. Muronoy Is
a laboior , I think , and McDonald Is a black
smith. I got this infprmatlon from Dillon ,
and wo will learn how much truth there Is In
U later on. "
VF.UWCT OF THE COHONEU'S JDKV ,
The following is the full text of the vor-
dlct of the coroner's Jury : "Wo , the under
signed Jurv , appointed to make Inquiries
according to law as to how the body viewed
by us came to its death , state our verdict
from thu evidence.
" 1. That the body is. that of Patrick II.
Cronln , known as Doctor Cronln :
'J. That his death was not from natural
cause , but by violent means.
"a That said Patrick H. Cronin was de
coyed from homo on North Clark street on
the ovenlng of May 1 , 1880 , by some parson
or persons , to the oottaga known us the
Carlson cottage , situated at No. 18713 North
Ashland avenue , in Lake View , Cook county ,
" J. That at said cottage the said Cronin
was murdered by Doing beaten on the head
with sonio blunt instrument in the hands of
some person or persons to us unknown , on
the night of said May 4 , or botweoa May 4
and May 5 , 1S39.
" 3. That the body after said murder was
committed was placed in a trunk and carried
to Udgowatcr on a wagon by several persons
and by them placed in u catch basin ut the
corner of Evanston avenue and Fifty-ninth
street , Luke View , whore it was discovered
May 27 , IbbO.
"That the ovldenco shows conclusively
to all minds that a plot or conspiracy was
formed by a number of persons for the purpose -
pose of murdering the said Cronln and con
cealing his body. Bald plot or coasplraoy
was deliberately contrived and cruelly
executed , iyo
" 7. Wo have carefully inquired Into the re
lations sustained by nald Cronln to other
persons while alive , to asccrUin if no. had
any quarrels or enmities , with any person ,
sufficient to cause liU murder
fc . It is our Judgment that no other ) n
or persons except some of these who are , or
who had becD , members nt a certain secret
Eoclety known as the 'United Brotherhood'
or Clan iia-Gad , had caunQ to bo. lhe.la.sUga.
tors or executnro of such plot or conspiracy
to murder said Cronln.
"l . Many of the witnesses testifying Innt.
said case havedono so with.much evident ,
unwillingness , and wo believe with much
mental reservation. Wo flnd from the evl
donco that a number of persons wore par-
tics to the plot and the conspiracy to mur
der said Cronln. nnd that Daniel Coughlln ,
Patrick O. Sullivan , Alexander Sullivan , and.
ono Woodruff , alias BJucH , were either
principals or accessories , or had guilty
knowledge of said plot and conspiracy to
inurdor said Cronln and conceal his body ,

ono of the most foul and brutal that over

that ; the proper authorities offer a large re
ward for the discovery and apprehension of

Alexander Sullivan's arrest was effected
without the slightest trouble. Before the
verdict was read in public , Coroner Hertz
emerged for a moment from the room In
which the jury was in ses
sion. Ho beckoned to an * officer and
handed him a inlUlmus. The oftlccr , with
a comrade , hurriedly loft the city hall and
Jumping Into u carriage drove straight to the
residence of Mr. Sullivan on Oak street. Mr.
Sullivan had gene to , bed a short tlmo pre
vious , but after the object of the officers was
explained nnd the information given that ho
would not bo permitted any tlmo for nny pur
pose , ho promptly and quickly dressed and
unhesitatingly accompanied his visitors.
The prisoner's domcaunr was calm through
out the cntlro proceeding. Entering the
carriage which had brought the olUcors , the
trio were driven to the afilcc of thu county
jail. After the usual preliminaries Mr. Sul
11 van was taken , through the cage into the
gloomy prison itself. The ox-prcsidont of
the Irish National League of America was
then Immediately incarcerated In cell No. 25 ,
In the tier known as "murderer's row. "
Two. Arrests in New Yorlc.
NEW YOIIK , Juno 11. Acting upon instruc
tions from Chicago , Police Inspector Byrnes
to-day caused the arrest of John
Maronoy and Charles McDonald , two
man whom ho has been shadowing
for suspected complicity in the murder of Dr.
Cronln. The men are now at police head
quarters and will bo hold to await the ar
rival of officers from Chicago. These men
have been shadowed by Byrnes' men for
some time past , and yesterday the Inspector
received a dispatch from Chicago ,
signed by States Attorney Longnecker
and Chlof of Police Hubbard , asking for
their arrest. i
The man Maronoy is John D. Maroney , n
dry goods merchant. iHo has been a promi
nent llguro In Irish affairs * for many yours ,
especially in the land league. Ho often
spoke publicly against the use
of violence in behalf of Ireland.
Very llttlo Is known of McDonald.
Both prisoners were taken before Inspector
Bvrnos iu the afternoon. They denied any
knowledge of the crimov They admitted they
were members of the IClan-na-Gael. Im
mediately after the prisoners' arrest they
were taken to the Tombs -polico court. They
will be held for murder , in accordance with
the instructions given Inspector Byrnes
from Chicago. ,
An evening pqper prints this or Maronoy :
"Ho resided onco. inilihHadqlphia. Ho was
eventually couipolledito leave that city , and
since that tlmo has been- understood to
have performed missions of a private
nature in connection with the Olan-
na-Gaol. On the occasion of the queen's
jubilee , n few years ago , Maroney was
one of ft number oi-men who went to Eng
land with the funds of a revolutionary or
ganization for the avoSyed purpose ol blow
ing up several public buildings. Maronoy
blow up nothing , and two of his companions
were arrested. Maronoy has never had any
regular business , but was generally well
supplied with money. Ono of the charges
made against Sullivan's administra
tion was that S700 of the funds of the Clan-
na-Gaol wont into the men's furnishing
business , which Maronoy carried on in Phil
adelphia , nnd in wb.io.li ho failed. Maronoy
was ono of the men. who before Crontn's body
was found in the sewer , was most pronounced
in the opinion that the , doctor had not met
with foul play , but h4d loft Chicago to avoid
the disgrace resulting from some scandal with
whioh ho was professionally connected.

to-day will bo under the supervision of Ad
jutant-General Hastings. One of the first
things to bo done by General Hastings will
bo the discharge of 800 policemen now doing
duty hero. It has been decided that they
should not bo paid out of the relief fund , but
that the county whoso sheriff deputized
them , should pay for their services. Sonio
persons look for trouble from this source.
All the men employed by Booth nnd Flynn
will bo paid off to-day nnd discharged and
transportation furnished for as many as do
not wish to work for the state.
A more cheerful and hopeful feeling prevails -
vails and is daily increasing , and work all
over the valley is being pushed to-day with
vigor. The horror of the situation has notrdl-
mlnishcdbut grows. The search for the dead
continues , and iu nil sections and directions
bodies are being found. A number of bodies
are no w"coming to the surface of the waters ,
and these whoso work has made them com
petent judges , say as many moro bodies as
have been found are lylug somowhero.
Notwithstanding this is the twelfth day
since the flood , most of the newspaper corre
spondents are still without slcopine accom
modations of any kind , and * as on the first
day are sleeping in barns , brick kilns and
other places without cots or blankets. Cots
have been sent , they are told , but so mo one
else gets them. The supply of provisions is
Improving some , nnd they now manage
to get ono , and sometimes two
fair meals daily. The provis
ions sent to this valley don't scoui
to have reached the right places. A number
of carloads of all kinds of supplies have been
sent to Morrollvillo , nnd as there was no
damage done there by the flood this stuff has
been misapplied. A prominent citizen of
Morrollvillo said this morning : "There is a
largo class of people here who have not Iqst
a thing in the flood , yet every arriving train
finds them in line ready to receive a share.
It is safe to say thcso people have secured
enough provisions to last them six months ,
and clothing cnouch to last flvo years. .
After to-day the commissary departments
will bo lu charge of Col. Spangler , assistant
quartermaster-general , with three assistants.
There will bo two post commissaries nnd
and eleven district commissaries , the latter

"Twenty carloads of provisions and cloth
ing were unloaded there to-day. Enough
clothing is arriving In Johnstown to supply
the city for twenty years. "
Thirty-eight bodies were recovered to-day ,
all of them being in an advanced state of de
composition. In one or two instances maggots

so soft that extreme care was necessary lest

was to construct and operate a railroad from

through the counties of YolioWstono , in
