Cable Special to THE BEI : . ] The Moybrtek
case found its way Into the house of lords to
day and rufllod the tamper of the lord chan

his health. In language mild and ohoico
Lord Fitzgerald asked It during the coming
recess the question of constituting an effec

bo considered , and if it were doomed expedi
ent would a measure to effect such object bo
The face of the lord chancellor became-
covered with a hue that betokens the rapid
approach of apoplexy. Ho could only per
fectly express his regret , ho said , that such
& question should bo raised. It was" a matter -
tor ho preferred not to have discussed at
such a timo.
Lord Herscholl coldly stated that it was
Impossible to obtitn attention to the necessi
ty for any particular reform except when the
public mind was excited on the subject. Ho
trusted the matter would bo seriously con
sidered by the government nt the coming re
cess , ns there was undoubtedly a widespread
feeling that such n tribunal would glvo addi
tional security against Injustice and against
such agitation as the suspicion of injustice
The importance of the remarks made by
Lord Cross lies In the fact that ho has been
homo secretary , though the little ho did say
ivas of such an extraordinary character as to
deserve attention if bo had never occupied
such a position. Huvine said that ho would
bo prepared to express ideas at the proper
tlmo , ho added : "I am not
quite sure that , with the existing state of
things , criminals do not gain an advantage
rather than lese ono by the right of criminal
appeal. " Unfortunately , ho failed to explain
what criminals could possibly lese by a
change for the better In their behalf.
After Lord Cross had spoken the matter
To-morrow's Lancet , after n thorough re
view of the medical testimony , will say :
"Wo can have no deslro that the royal prorog

case , but as a duty to the living relatives of
tbo deceased , to the painstaking , fearless and
honest Jury , and to ono of the greatest orna

NEW YOUK , August 15. The Now York
council for Mrs. Maybrick to-day received a
letter from Lawyer Alfred Monck , of Mon
treal , In which bo states that a Mrs. Yapp ,
answering the description of Mrs. Ynpp who
was the chief witness against Mrs. May-
brick , was obliged to leave Montreal about
tbrco years aero to escape indictment for
perjury. At that tlmo Malvln Smith brought
action against his wife for separation. Mrs.
Ynpp was n witness for Smith , and gave
very damaging evidence against his wlfo.
It was shown that Smith's mistress and Mrs.
Yapp hud , with Smith's aid , plotted a con
spiracy to blacken Mrs. Smith's character
and prove her an adulteress.

womanhood in much her own way , and was

It was said of hortoo , that though she was a

No Sympathy for Terry.
NEW Yoim , August 15. [ Special Telegram
to THE BEE. ] The newspapers all over the
country , according to telegrams received to
day , comment freely on the killing of Judge
Terry , In California , Saturday , and with re
markable unanimity. Not ono , so far as
board fromr expresses sympathy for that
brilliant but reckless man , who met snch a
tragic fate. The concensus of editorial
opinion seems to bo that no regret Is to bo
expressed ; that BrodericH has , in a slight
measure , been avenged after many years ,
and that his slayer , who nowed the wind , has
reaped the whirlwind.
Verdict of the Jury.
STOCKTON , Cal. , August 15. At the Inquest
last night over tbo body of Judge Terry no
now fuels were developed. The jury re
turned a verdict that the deceased came to
his death from the effects of a Run shot
wound inflicted by ftavid Naglo at Lathrop.
Naulo'fl Preliminary Hearing.
SAJJ FRANCISCO , AUgust 15 , The prelim
inary bearing of Deputy Marshal Naglo will
come up before a Justice of the peace at
Stockton Wednesday next. A strong effort
will Do made after the examination to secure
ball. If It is refused the matter will be ap
pealed. United States Marshal Franks has
secured from Naglo the details of the affair.
Naglo says be is confident that Terry
drew back his hand after striking Jus
tice Field for the purpose of pulling
from bis'coat'a knlfo ho was presumed to bo
carrying , as he once made aQldavlt that ho
always went armed. It Is the theory of
those about'tho United States marshal's of
fice that Mrs. Terry , when she threw herself
on her husband's body , took a weapon from
him , though when the body was searched no
weapon was found.
The warrant upon which the arrest of Jus
tice Field fe expected to bo made was issued
by Justice of the Pence H. V. J. Swnln , of
Stockton , and Is addressed to the sheriff of
the county. The sheriff can not arrive in
this city until to-night , and it is thought
probable that ho will not attempt to servo
tbo warrant until to-morrow. No course has
been outlined by the friends of Justice Field
ns to the action ho will tatco under the cir
cumstances , beyond the statement made by
the attorneys for Naglo in Stockton to-day
that Justice Field would appear at any tlmo
if desired. The warrant for his
arrest was issued solely upon complaint of
Miss Terry , who did not witness the shoot
ing , so far as the evidence given before the
coroner's Jury showed. In fact , no evidence
was given connecting the Justice with the
tragedy id any way , beyond the fact that ho
was assaulted by Terry. For this reason the
attorney who appeared for the state , in 'tho
absence of tbo district attorney , refused to
Issue a warrant , and it was Issued on Mrs.
Terry's complaint In consequence.
A Warrant for Judco Field.
STOCKTON , Cal. , August 15 , A warrant
was Issued to-day for the arrest of Stephen
J. Field , on complaint of Mrs. Sarah Althea
Terry , who charges him with complicity In
the killing of her husband , David 8. Terry ,
at Lathrop , yesterday. Sheriff Cunningham

arrest Justice Field. The attorneys who
have boon engaped to conduct the defense ol
Deputy Marshal Naglo promised that Justice
Field would appear when wanted , but Mrs.
Terry's complaint was made against both.
The funeral of Judge Terry will bo holt
Friday. The body is still at the morgue.
Mrs. Terry has not loft It at any time.

shal Naglo Is still the chief topic of discus
sion hero , though no developments have

CHIEF AUTHUK'3 GUANOES

CHICAGO , August IB. [ Special Telegram to
Tnn BEE. ] The members of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers nro begin
ning towarm up" over their annual con
vention , which is to bo hold In Denver in
October. The principal business will bo
the election of a successor to Chief
Arthur , and there is a great deal of
earnest canvassing going on over It. That
there Is sorao opposition to Arthur's ro-olco-
tlon even his most ardent admirers admit ,
but the prevailing opinion among the con
servatives Is that the "old man" will pull
through all right. Ono of the best posted
men In Chicago on brotherhood affairs said
"I don't anticipate much opposition to Mr.
Arthur. There will bo some , of course ,
but ho will bo re-elected all right enough.
The brotherhood is essentially a conservative
organization , and the conservative element
is naturally going to run it. There are but
few among us who favor a federation for
that very reason. We want to preserve our
conservatism. The brotherhood , for Instance ,
Is opposed to strikes , because wo
believe that in nine cases out of ten the
points wo are after can bo gained "without
them. If wo were to amalgamate with other
railway organizations more radical in their
beliefs wo might often bo forced into strikes
against ourfbotter Judgement. "

RICHMOND , Va. , August 15. The state
democratic convention mot at 10 o'clock thla
inornlng and proceeded to take'a second bal
lot for governor. Before tbo roll call was
completed Captain Phil McKluney was nom
inated by acclamation. J. Hogo'Tylor ,

county , was selected chairman of the state
central committee. The platform was then
adopted and the convention adjourned sine

tion of the people of the state that , through
the wise legislation and administration of
the democratic party , the public schools have
been preserved in cfllulcnt operation
and their accommodations extended ;
that tbo resources necessary for
the conduct of the government In
all Its departments have been secured , and
that tbo debt question has been put In tbo
line of final and acceptable settlement. Wo
would reprobate as mlschovlous to all inter
ests , " runs the text , "tho reopening of an
issue which has been the sourch of so much
embarrassment and'vcxation to the common
wealth and with the continuance of tbo party
administration which has dealt with It , so
ably and wisely , wo confidently look to Its
solution upon the lines of adjustment which
the democratic representatives have faith
fully executed. "
The platform closes thus : "Wo oppose
the republican party as the party of high
taxes , of the corrupt and extravagant ex
penditure of the utiullc revenues , of unjust
and oppressive treatment of the people of the
southern states , as the creator of trusts and
the promoter of monopolies. Wo oppose the
republican party as the stirrer up of strife
between races , as a false friend to the col
ored race and an enemy to the white race. "

Grand Army Men Jubilant.
CHICAGO , August 13. [ Special Telegram
to Tim BEE. ] Grand Army veterans nro
Jubilant over the action of the Monon road in
making the cont-a-mllo ruto to the Milwau
kee encampment. To the most of the veter
ans It looks Ilka a soramblo on the pirt of all
the roads to make the rate which , up to the
Monon'a notice , had been refused Unani
mously. The Knnkakcc , running between
Chicago and Cincinnati , promptly duplicated
the notice of the Mouon. All the veterans
from south of the Ohio rlvor and from
southern Ohio and aud Indiana are certain
of the "fought-and-dled"-for rate of a cent a
mile to the encampment. General Passen
ger Agent Darker , of the Munon , explained
the reduced ruto ns follows :
"Wo learned definitely that the Pan-
hamllo would make the rate of a
cent a mile and forstallod the move
by making It ourselves. Mora than that , wo
contracted this morning for the transporta
tion all voternns from Indianapolis , Cin
cinnati and Louisville. "
Opinions vary as to the possible spread of
the cont-a-mllo rate. Chairman Abbott , of
the Western States Passenger association ,
docs not believe it will go beyond the lUonon ,
Knnknkoo and possibly .tho Panhandle. Vice
President McMullon. of the Alton , than whom
there Is no bettor Judge of railroad matters ,
thinks that at the Very least every ruto
south of the Ohio rlvor and east of the Mis
sissippi will be affected. as well as rates
from all points east of Cincinnati. Secretary
Fulton , of the Ohio lilvor Trafllo association ,
of which the Motion , Kankakco and Pan
handle are members , agrees with VIce PresIdent -
Idont McMullon. Should this view bo cor
rect it In very llkolv that the cont-a-mtlo
rate will spread in all directions. Tlia
break would then come from such roads as
the Illinois Central , which has a line
to Now Orleans. The other southern lines ,
connecting at Cincinnati and Louisville with
the Monon and Kankakeo , will manifestly
do the bulk of the business unless the Illl !
nols Central "gets on the band wagon. "
Should the Illinois Central uiako the ruto it
will bo extended to St. Louts , aud all the
western and southwestern road ? must tncot
It. On the other hand , the eastern connec
tions at Cincinnati of tha Monoa and Kanka
kco will do the bulk of the business unless
the central traftlc and trunk line roads make
the cent-u- mlle
- - rato.
The whnlo rate mouhnnism is so llnoly adJusted -
Justed that good Judges do not sco any way
out of the trouble now except for every rood
to make the oent-a-mllo rato.
The Pennsylvania ofllclals hold a confer
ence in Plttsburg to-day , to discuss the posi
tion of the Panhandle. An apparently au
thentic rumor became current hero in tha
evening that the Panhandle would probably
still further lower the rate. Assistant Gen
eral PassongorJViiont Adams , of the Penn
sylvania , had not been notified of any action
at .tho close of office hours to-day.
The Alton Still Kicking.
CHICAGO , Auguut'15. The Cjilcago & Al
ton , at a mooting of the southwestern alyl-
siou of the Western Freight association to
day , claimed that the action of the Santa Po
in excluding It from participation in through
rates on cattle from west of the Mississippi
river to Chicago , absolved it from its ngree
incut with that , road and that ft would here
after make rates to suit itself. Chairman
MIdgoly was of the opinion that the Alton
had thn right to protect its through business
by mooting the rates of Its competitor. The
Rock Island and Santa Po dissented from
this opinion and the question was argued foe
several hours , the mooting finally adjourning
without reaching any conclusion.

licro that If President Strong , of tbo Atclil-

has not resigned , ho will do so at a very early

Mr. Strong Is a practical manager. Each is
perhaps unexcelled la his department , but
neither Is an adept at the other's work , so
when Magoun insists upon interfering with
