Cabltp-Spccial to TUB Bnn.l You have
evidently had access during the past week to
cxrluclvo sources of Information which hava
enabled you to lay before your readers with
remarkable fulness nnd accuracy the chief
facts connected with the controversy that
has arisen over the proposed royal grants.
In not n single detail does your Information
need correction. Unfortunately the week
closes us it began with utter failure , o se
cure an agreement on tha immcdiato applica
tion for additional grants , and with every
prospect of still moro 'serious disagreement
In parliament when the entire question is
carried there for settlement.
To-duy's efforts to como to some compro
mise have been "ns Ineffectual as those
which have gone boforo. " Gladstone , Morley -
ley nnd ether liberals , with two exceptions ,
nro wiling to give the Prlnco of Wales
40,000 u year over und above his present al-
lowunco on condition that ho makes pro
visions for his own children , and that the
ether grandchildren of the queen shall bo
provided for by their parents or re
lations. lo ) not Imagine that in going
thus far Gladstone and his friends
have hnd a road all smooth before them.
Very far from that. A largo body eof the
radicals in the house are desperately discon
tented , and they do not scruple to dcclaro
that their veteran leader betrayea them.
They do not understand that Gladstone has
been a party moro than * once to arrange
ments of the kind which are now proposed ,
mid that ho feels it his duty , as nn old ser
vant of the crown , to stand by the sovereign
nnd her family.
Now , 1 should think It very probable that
Gladstone was consulted before the present
application was mudo , and he is known to bo
very good friends with the Prince of Wales.
Ho is familiar with all the circumstances of
the prince , and that bolng so , ho must bo
aware thut if the prlnco were to die tomorrow
row his children would bo loft totally
unprovided for , consequently it is not sur
prising that Mr. Gladstone has taken up n
very strong line in favor of the reasonable
demand made on behalf of the ormco's
children. But then the government
does not stop there , and that is
the unlucky part of the business
It makes this application , but It docs not say
that it or its successor shall not be free to
coico.forward ngal& und ask for more money
for any other grandchildren of the queen.
Thcro is where Gladstone draws the lino.
Ho Is perfectly conscious that a great strain
has been put upon his supporters In their ef
forts to go wlth.hltn ns fur as they have dono.
Morley has been very faithful , and Morloy's
constituents are by no means pleased with
him In consequence , and , after all , nothing is
gained by a man losing Ills seat In parlia
ment through loyalty to his chief. It does
not advance the cause ono jot. Gladstone
himself would not bo a gainer by Morley
icing thrown out of his scat , and this result
will not be Improbable If nn election wcro to
take place just now , for the radical party
throughout the country Is furiously opposed
to any moro royal grants. That you may
take to bo u fact qulto beyond dispute.
As for the conservatives , they simply grin
and bear it.
"Will the trovornmont civo way to that 1"
is a question which agitates all sections.
This evening I do not think It can or will.
. - Evidently there U u power In the back
ground whloh has to ' bo considered , which
thinks it .would bo betraying the younger
branches of the royal family If nil claim on
the country on their behalf wcro now repu
diated nnd forfeited. Thb government Is
therefore really in no position to recede from
the attitude it has taken. It Is willing to
leave the future take c.iro of Itself and bind
parliament to nothing. But tlio liberals will
not have it thut way. They say wo must
s bear nil future applications. As matters
stand now the ministry can not yield , but it
may bo authorized to do so before Monday
The queen stood out for her rights on the
bed chamber question and boat Sir Robert
Pool. She refused to allow Lord Pnlmerston
to Ignoio her In the management of foreign
affairs , nnd ho had to give way.
Hut Is the present u good occasion to make
another resolute stand I Is it wise to assume
this attitude ! We will tutco all you have to
give now , but wp will give no undertaking ,
not to present another bill for payment
whenever circumstances require , and we
Mono are to bo judges of these circum
stances. Is that wise ! I for ouo take leave
to doubt it , The word apparently is being
passed around to the conservatives press to
back up the ministry in Its refusal to yield.
1 * co ono seml-oflleiul paper says that there
must bo no surrender. Well , of course , there
Is nothing to prevent that line bolng taken ,
The ministerial majority Is strong enough
to curry u report couched in thut sense , but
the conservative party must make up its
mind to bo routed , horse , foot nnd d ragoona
at the next general election us n result.
Tall talk costs nothing now , but it will bo
dear In the end. You cannot make addi
tional royal grants really popular. The people
ple will not stand in the streets and throw
up their caps for them. And what they
expect now is tbatdoflulto limits shall be
fixed to the uuiouut to bo paid the royal
family , und this limit the ministry refuses to
tlx. There you have the case in a nut shell.
It Is ofu'u said that there was a bargain
between the crown und parliament when the
queen ascended the throne , by which the
crown lands wore coded to tbo country and
tbo country in return agreed to provide for
11 the royal family , but then comes In
another ugly controversy. What do you
mean by crowning lands ! What made theme
o , and I it a fact that they really be
longed to tbo people I It it very ill <
Judged to drag all uch matter ! upon the
carpet. When once the whole subject Is
thrown Into the political arena for nil parties
to fight over , there Is no naylng what may
appcn or who may get badly hurt.
The best friends of monarchy nnd the most
oyal subjects of the queen arc these who
vould gladly have seen the Issue postponed ,
admit that it could not bo deferred any
ongcr , but it might have been managed
vlth moro tact. Next week wo shall bo In
ho thick of the contest , for the com till t ten is
round to make some sort of a report. Will
ho ministry take the risk of going before
parliament wltn the admission that It has to
mcountor the opposition of Gladstone and
ho entire liberal party } Will It do
his after it lias become notorious
rious that some of his followers
ire disposed to act eoncrously toward the
crown and nrrango a fair compromise ! Yes ,
t Is quite possible that It will do so unless
omo common sense steps In and takes com-
nnnd between now nnd Monday at half past
2. when the committee will meet , most
> robably for the last time.
The ncck-or-nothlng supporters of the
jovernmcjit intw spur them on. They may
ilustor about nailing their colors to the
nasthcud , and shout no surrender till they
are hoarse , but there will bo a day of reck
oning , and then it will bo rcgrcttou that
moderate counsels did not prevail. Lot us
oven now hope that nt the eleventh hour
hey will prevail , before Irreparable mischief -

Thcro has been qulto nn epidemic of mur

Ono of the most startling murders was com-
mitcd in the Hue Lionaparto last Monday
night. Mine. Kulino , a respectable con-
cicrga of about sixty summers , was seated
in her lodge shortly after nightfall , when
three men , who had previously been ob
served prowling around the house , entered
the room and cut the ill-fated 'old woman's
throat before she could utter n sound. It
must have been immediately after the mur
der that Mile. Ciiado , the servant of Sena
tor M. Fcguerr , who occupied an apartmon t
on the flrst floor-passed by the lodge. She
noticed that the curtain over the glass
half of the door was drawn down
almost completely. Looking through an un
covered corner shu caught sight of a man's
figure. After un interval the woman opened
the door to outer , but seeing three disrepu
table looking men in the room she ran bank
to the street shrieking. The murderers
Jumped through a window and quickly disap
peared. A male neighbor now joined the
alarmed servant , and together they found
Muio. Kuhno lying on the floor with her
throat cut. Ttio arm chair In which sue hud
probably been sitting was overturned , the
other furniture had been pulled ubout in the
haste made by the murderers in searching
for the money which they thought the con-
clcgo would have received from the Inmates
of the house. JS'o trace of the murderers has
been discovered. The next dnv a daring
burglary took place In the Hue Vauglrard ,
where Mme. Sazurn , a widow lady of easy
moans , was found lying senseless in her
apartment wilh outs and gashes on her
throat nnd neck. The would-be murderers
had been startled by the neighbors und fled
before accomplishing their purpose. No
traces of them have been discovered.

Something had to bo dono. Payne's friends
know that if an investigation came U would

Special to TUB Biu.J Since the heavy
rains of Sunday last , which went far to spoil
the pleasure of the holiday * makers on the
national fete , the weather has been unusual
ly cool for this season. Td-day it is again
oppressive , with the wind In the southwest ,
nnd every appearance of mi approach hit ;
The police are still without a clue to the
murderers of the old woman , ICuhn , tha con-
clorgo in the Kuo Bonaparte , who was
strangled Monday night. Goran , chief of
detectives , said yesterday that he has every
hope that his men nra on the right
track , nnd will shortly have the criminals
under look nnd key. The old conclergo was
evidently murdered by persons who sup
posed that she had collected the rents for the
expired quarter from the tenants of the
house. Fortunately for the landlord she
had not dona so. Several arrests are made
dally , but until now without practical result.
Among the persons arrested to-day was a
youth nloxnamcd "Toatlllard , " who hud
scars upon his forehead and broken thumbs ,
just as hud ouo of the suspected persons
seen in the house. ' When confronted with
witnesses they said that although bearing n
strong resemblance to the man
wanted , ho was not the same
Individual. Besides , " Toatlllard
was able to prove an alibi. When asked by
the police commissioners where ho lived , ho
replied In the Hotel dos Pontros , nnd earned
his living In an honorable manner washing
dogs in the Seine. Some times ho earned as
much as 1 franc and 50 centimes a day.
Upon being questioned by the police officers
as to where the hotel was situated , ho re
plied that it was upon the embankment near
the river. This was found to bo the case.
Between the bridge Saints Peres and the
bareo landing exists some scaffolding.
Amongst this n number nf young gamins had
fixed packing cases nnd made themselves
rooms , furnished with old straw matts. They
cen went so far as to lot lodgings for the
moderate price of 2 cents a night.
Goron seems convinced that this murder ,
like that of another old woman committed
the following night , was by BO mo precocious
boy murderers. His llrst impression wus
thut the sumo hands committed the two
crimes , but this has been proved not to bo
the cnso. The second attempt was not suc
cessful , and the poor old coachman's wife ,
although half strangled and much knocked
about , wus able to designate the assailants ,
who wore bovs she had befriended to the
best of hnr ability.

Field throws co'ld water on tha suggestion of
a correspondent that a 1,000 cup should bo
provided for international yacht racing1. The
Field savs it Is by no means certain that any
American would compete for such a cup
under the Ordinary rules governing yachting
in Great Britain , and considers it doubtful
if Americans would compote under their own
conditions , as two American challenge cups
the Capo May and Brcnton's reef cups
have been on this side of the water four
years. Ono is held by the owner of the Gn-
ncsta und the other by the owner of the
Irox. These cups nro hold under conditions
made by the Americans , who also selected
tba course , vet no American is sulllcicntly
spirited to challenge for thorn. The u [ old
thinks 1,000 too much and says the fate of
tho"Dunravon tureen" should bo un example
of what may bo tlio fate of a perpotua
challenge cup , Tlio Field regrets to suy that
the American cup "Seems to have almost en
tirely lost its importance. " It rather ex
pects the new challenge cup started by
Boston yachtsmen W > eventually extinguish
the American cup. Should the Yulkyrio
win the Boston cup , all the challenge cups of
American manufacture will bo held by
British yachts. Doubt Is expressed that the
Valkyrie could win from the Katrinn or
Titania , which the Field considers "Ro-
markabla vessels In an ordinary match. "
The Field attaches no Importance to the re
peated defeats of the Valkyrie by the
Yaruna. and considers the former the best
all-round boat.

Special to THE BIJK.J Great Interest wus
awakened by the yachting hero to-duy , thoraces
races being sailed under the flag of the Koyal
Clrquo. The Port Yacht club's now lugger ,
Paradox , was entered for the maiden race ,
No vessel of a similar class has been under a
racing flag since tbo time of the celebrated
three-masted lugger of Lord Willoughby , n
quarter of u century ago. There were two
mutches , ono for vessels over forty tons ratIng -
Ing , and ono for those rated under forty.
The Paradox was entered In the first class ,
and started with the Wcndur , Gudrun ,
Sloutlihound and Vol au Vent. The new
lugger made a false start , and wus fully thirty
minutes behind the rest before she
came round the buoy. There wus tcarcely
any wind at the outset , but about mid-day a
breeze sprung up which freshened Into half
a gale before the finish. The Paradox never
Improved her position , but gradually fell
away , and about 1 o'clock dropped out of the
race. She carried two big sails , a top sail
and jib , and presented anything but an ele
gant appearance among the other crafts.
The finish was very exciting as the lot came
pitching along over the high seas , the Wen-
dur first , Vol au Vent second and Gudrun
third. The owner of Paradox Intends to null
her in a race to Boulogne on Monday , and
hopes to do much better after rectifying cer
tain defects in the vessel's ' sails.
A Momeuloiia Mooting.
CniCAUo , July 20 , The meeting which Is
probably to determine the fate of the Trans
continental Railway association began in this
city to-duy , but owing to the absence of
several representatives of Important
lines adjourned until , Monday next.
The association has just now reached the
critical period of Its existence , both the
Southern und Northern Pacltlo roadi having
given notice of withdrawal. Should they
persist In their Intentions It would 'bo folly
to attempt to continue the association , Ef
forts will ho made to persuade
them to rconsldor their action , nnd
In the cnso of the Northern Pacific
thcro is hope of success. Traffic Manngor
Hannaford said to-day that ho thought the
matter would bo amicably adjusted so far as
his road Is concerned , but the grievance of
the Southern Pacific is the competition of
the Canadian Pacific. It claims Hint the un
reasonable differential allowed that
road , coupled with its free
dom from legal restrictions , has
enabled It to absorb the bulk o ( the Pacific
coast tradlc , nnd the American lines are
powerless to moot Its competition whllo re
maining members of the association.
Strangely enough , the representatives of the
Canadian Pacific are in attendance asking
still further differences on San Francisco
trnfllc ; BO the prospect for adjustment of
the existing difficulties is not bright ,

She FilcH a Sensational Damniro Suit
Against a Mmiiphls Colonel ,
MEMPHIS , Tonn. , July 80. [ Special Tele
gram to Tun Ben. | Some time ago Colonel
II. Clay King filed a bill in the chancery
court against Mrs. Mary E. Pillow , widow
of the well known confederate general , in
which ho alleged that Mrs. Pillow exorcised
undue Influence over him and induced him to
deed a largo amount of his property to her ,
but that ho did so with the expressed
understanding between them that she would
not present the deeds for registration until
after his death , which obligation nnd agree
ment she had violated. The object of his
bill was to got n decree vesting the title to
the property again in himself.
Within the past week the lady has brought
a damage suit against him in the circuit
court for $100,000. Supplemented to this , she
filed , through her attorneys , In the
chancery court this morning , her an
swer and cross-bill to the bill filed
by Colouol King. The bill is n
very sensational one , and contains wholesale
dentals of all of Colonel King's allegations
und sovcro strictures upon him. Among
other things , she charges that the complain
ant , upon a hollow pretense , inducijd her
house maid , during her absence , to pet him
the deeds in question , nnd that once in his
possession , ho throw them into the flro ,
where they were consumed , and that "every
allegation of his bill putting any other con
struction upon this transaction is un inge
nious falsehood. " The bill further says ;
"Notwithstanding the complainant wishes
to destroy respondent's reputation , ho has
repeatedly , in conversation with his friends
in Memphis , solemnly declared her purity ,
In the llrst year of their business connection
ho told her ho wished to got a divorce from
his wife in order to marry her. Respondent
dissuaded him. Afterward ho drew up a bill
of divorce and sent it. to Judge Morgan , of
this city , to bo tiled , and sent a copy to de
fendant's son-in-law , J. S. Shield , of
Birmingham. Shield at once replied
that the disgrace attached to his
actions could only bo wiped out with blood ,
mid asked for a meeting In Memphis to ar
range hostilities. Respondent came to Mem
phis nnd induced Judge Morgan to suppress
the bill. Complainant demanded that re
spondent marry him , saying that ho was a
ruined man if she did not. Complainant has
always avored that respondent was a chaste
woman , and is under obligation to marry her
on the death of Mrs. King , or on the secur
ing of an Honorable divorce , "

LONDON , July 20. ( Now York Herald
Cable Special to TIIK BIK. : I Ono of the
most interesting nnd pi'rhnps most signifi
cant poluts connected with the murder of
Alice Mackenzie , the last victim of the
Ripper , is ono to which intention has not
been called. When the August , September
and November murders wcro committed last
year the number of constables on patrol duty
in the "murder district" was strengthened ,
by a hundred extra men from the ether di
visions. Those were at that time UOO men la
uniform nnd plain clothes on night duty In a
comparatively small area. As the excite
ment lessoned the force was gradually
decreased until two weeks "upo there were
only forty loft of the extra nllowanco. Last
Monday , by order from headquarters , the
extra forty were withdrawn. On the follow
ing nlgbt , the Sth , tha murder wns commit
ted. This singular coincidence would of Itself -
self have some value , hut added to the faut
that every ono of tha murders showed n
knowledge of police customs nnd rules , U
must provo to the police that the field to bo
covered In scorch of au assassin Is not largo ,
nnd is probably within the Whltcctmpol dis
trict. The celerity with which the Ripper
accomplished his purpose after the with
drawal of the extra police might bo accepted
as evidence that ho was waiting1 for such nil
order , and the moment the order was given
ho was aware of the circumstance.
The ox-pollccman is at times a doubtful
character , because no man is discharged
from the force without good cuuso. The in
formation of police matters possessed by the
Ripper seems sufilelent grounds for an In
vestigation of such ex-members as spend
time in or about Whltechapoi.
In hunting for clues tha police display
much patience , if not much Intelligence.
Absolute lick of the trail has a paralyzing
affect on every man , woman or child , whllo
every story tending to throw light on the
murders Is listened to , but without ndvantaga
so far.
Brodie , the man who walked into tha
station and said ho had committed
the murders ho did not appear
to know whether eight or nine-
was given a hearing to-day. The testimony ;
of the lodging housekeeper was that lirodlo
was In his room from 11 o'clock Tuesday1
night until noon Wednesday. Brodio provodj
untruthful on ether material points also , blithe
ho insisted so strenuously that ho was the
Ripper that he was hold on his own con *
fession with being the murderer of Alice
Mackenzie , though the charge against him
was a wandering'lunatic. Ho said to the
magistrate :
"Do I look like ono. I am ns sane us any
man in this court , I can assure you. "
His appearance belied his words.
John Royal , the man arrested on the
charge of attempting to dissect Nora Brown ,
on the Surrey side of the Thames this morn *
Ing , was remanded for n week. Nobody
thinks ho is the Hipper.
Everybody is still talking of the Ripper
aril the smooth style in which ho docs his
a\yful work. Many persons are under sus
picion , but day by day the number lessons.
Jack seems us safe from detection ns If In
the center ot Africa instead of in the center
of Loudon.
Much of tlio Kcoeiit News of u Favor
able Nature.
ST. PAUL , July 20. Much of the moro re
cent crop news is of n favorable nature und
grain men In the Twin cities Jure much re
joiced. From Isolated towns nnd villages
over In Dakota reports have been sent of tha
total or partial fuiluro of the wheat crop ,
but the reports from the whole northwest do
not warrant such broad statements as to the
condition of the crops. Grain men
who have just returned from trips
over the territory say there will bo
probably two-thirds or three-fourths of the
avcrugo crop In Dakota. It Is generally ac
knowledged that the condition of affairs In
Minnesota Is much more favorable. This
state has had considerable rain at the proper
times , and the fields nro generally reported
in line condition , although In u few sections
the crop will fall n little short of tha uverugo.
Within the past few days good rains have
fallen in immv Darts of the northwest , nnd
In flomo Instances , at least , the rain huj been ,
not too lute to bo of benefit. Western Wis
consin nnd northern Iowa also send in favor
able returns.
