Special to Tun Bnr.,1 The Boulanglst
organs stnto that tha general will maka a
few weeks' stay In the channel Islands. This
way of pulling the matter recalls Iho cele
brated euphemism invented for application to
the defeated nrmlcs of "fall back in good
ordor. " Jersey's now guest did not receive
n very Haltering ndlcux from his old allies.
These conservative journals which form
erly supporicd the Boutangisb nllmnco
nro now uioro than reserved as to Iho gen
eral. From La Solicl to La Autorito all nro
agreed thnt , politically speaking , ho has no
existence , and that his star has been blotted
out , of the horizon.
Tlio group of Boulnnglsts who form a part
of the now chamber has boon decidedly cast
off from the right , and they will sit nt the
extreme left. Boulanglsm Is thus resuming
the form In which It flrst appeared and scorns
likely henceforward to bo nothing but n dis
sident fraction of the radical party. It is
likely that this rupture of the alliance may
lead to n schism in the conservative party , a
portion of which will , in nil probability , cut
loose from the Comto des Douzo , nnd , choos-
ng Us own lenders , follow n moro moderate
nnd less obstructive policy. Herve. of La
Soliol , advocates this course , while Do Cns-
Eagnac in La Autorito depends upon the
action of the Comto des Dou/so nnd pleads
for a continuation of the same policy.
Under these conditions U Is evident that
the conservative party is dcsliucd to undergo
a total transformation.

great speculative marts. "Brunswick" and
"B. nnd S. " stocks are said to bo low and
the bulls declare that the price will go to IS
pence before the end of the month. A mem
ber of the firm of Lewis & Peat said to the

price was ridiculous nmYthoro was no profit
In it for anybody. Ho remembered selling ,
qulnino for 11 shillings nnd did not expect-to
BCO it back to 11 pence for n good while. The

that if there is such a stock on hand as the

One Which Vitally .Concerns All Mu

CHICAGO , Oct. 10. [ Special Telegram to
Tiic Br.n.1 An Important law suit Is on trial
befor Judge Clifford , which vitally concerns
the mutual benefit Insurance societies all
over the country , nnd fills the court room
with representatives of almost every society
of the kind having a branch In Chlcatro. It
isthocnso of Bertha Dnlborg to recover n
$3,000 benefit for the death of her husband ,
from the supreme lodge of Knights of Honor.
Prior to July , 1SSO , J , Dalbcrg , the plaintiff's
husband , was a member in good standing of
Chicago lodge , No. 93i. At this time Dal-
berg was ill nnd had seine trouble with the
ofllcera of the ledge over the payment
of sick benefits. Ho claimed to
have boon unfairly treated , and when assess
ment No 14 ( bccamo dtio ho failed to meet it.
Under the rules of the lodge ho was allowed
thirty days to pay up , nnd , falling to do so ,
wns suspended. Soon after Mrs. Dalborg
tendered the nmount of iho assessment to
the officers of the ledge , but it was refused ,
and she wns given n blank application for
reinstatement. This she refused. The failure
of Dahlherg to pay his quota of thn assess
ment to the subordinate ledge did not pre
vent that body from sending the full amount
to the supreme lodge , and kocplnff in good
standing with that body. As each subsequent
assessment on members of the ledge be
came duo Mrs. Dalberg nnpoared be
fore the otUcors nnd tendered the
amount her husband would have
been assessed wcro ho not under suspension ,
but this was refused each tlmo because of
Dalberg's refusal to ttpuly for reinstatement.
As Dalberg wns very ill and rapidly grow
ing worse , it was thought that the applica
tion would bo unsuccessful and it was never
rondo , but when ho died. Juno 20 , 1833 , the
widow demanded the $ -.000 death bcncilt.
This was refused , nnd the present suit is the
outcome. The plaintiff alleges that , Inas
much as the tnono.\ was tendered to tlic sub
ordinate ledge nnd the assessments were
paid by that bo'd.v to the supreme lodge , the
latter body , which pays all death benctlts , Is
liable for the nmount which would have
been paid Mrs , Dalborg had her husbaud
nut been suspended.

The ox-president paid a high tribute to the
character of the dead statesman. After
speaking at length of his nubUo spirit and
high Integrity , Air. Cleveland sum : "But
while thus conlcmplating the value of use
fulness wo cannot refrain Iroin a reflection
which has a sombre co.'ormg. What is the
condition of the times when wo may justly

public servant because ho was true and
honest and faithful to his trust. Are wo

NEW YonK , Oct. 10. The Inrnnn line
steamer City of Now York , which went
aground in the lower bay yesterday , is still
there , and eleven tugs have been sent to tier
assistance. Her passengers are being taken
off , and it is feared she Is sinking in quick
sand. The company expects to get the
steamer afloat by 3 o'clock this afternoon.
At 11 o'clock ono of the big togs which
went to licr assistance icturned to quaran
tine and reported that all efforts to float , the
ocean racer were unavailing. This tug aid
not coullrm tlio report tUut the steamer was
sinking in quicksand. There Is considerable
excitement among the passengers on board.
There are 500 cabin passengers nnd 173
second cabin passengers on the City of Now
York. The steerage passengers are numbered
in hundreds. Among the first cabin passen-
cers nro Wilson Barrett , the great English
tragedian , and his company. Peter Wright &
Sons , agents In this city for the Inmaii line ,
state thu big steamer is in no danger what
ever. The passengers are beinc brought up
to the city on steamers.
Among the cabin passengers taken off tlio
City of Now York by n steamer were Georco
Gould and wife. The hitter was 111 nnd had
to bo carried aboard. It was learned later
that Mrs. Gould's illness is not serious. The
big steamer seems to stand as if she was in
dry dock. Her bow is more elevated than
tier Btcrn. Her twin screws sUml almost
clear of the water and she is visibly listed to
port.Tho pilot who was In charge whan the
steamer went aground said no lud been a
pilot for seven years and never mut with an
accident beforo. Ho stood on the bridge
with six ofllcors of the vessel. When look
ing forward ho saw n pilot boat crossing the
steamer's bow bearing n torch. Ho
ported to nvoid a collision , and ran
airround. Before ho could starboard
his vessel the steerage pnsscnccra
wcro so wild' and excited they wanted to
lynch the pilot , but were soon subdued by
Captain Lewis nnd the ofllcors. The steamer
Star took the remainder of the cabin passen
gers and a good deal of baggage to tills city

vvero loft aboard. It was determined to-night
to have tugs try and haul the steamer off the

The reception to-ulght nt the homo of Mrs ,
General Logan ends the triennial conclave.
Thousands loft the city to-day nnd to
night and nearly all of these remaining will
leave to-morrow. Hy Saturday Washington
Will have assumed its normal condition.
The ono hundred brass bands which have
paraded the streets for four days nnd nights
are departing , and there is loss noise and
moro music. Late to-night there wcro the
usual scenes presented around the city of
marching commnndcrics , many of them ac
companied by ladles , all going from head
quarters to headquarters singing songs ,
waving lints and handkerchief * , and having
a great , good time. It is conceded that this
has been ono of Iho most pleasant and suc
cessful conclaves ever held. The attend-
nuco of the knights who participated in the
parade is ns near twelve thousand as can bo
computed. Outside of this there wcra
probably two thousand who did not
participate iu the capacity of knights.
The largest number that has attended any of
the conclaves heretofore Is estimated at
0,000 , so that there wore C.OJO moro nt this
conclave than any of those In the past. Fully
twice as many ladies have accompanied tba
sir knights hero as wcro over in attendance
upon a conclave before. There were quitoas
many ladles hero as Knights Templar , nnd the
number of visitors who do not belong to the
order wns probably twice the number of
knights ana their ladies , malting in all in the
neighborhood of sixty to seventy thousand
visitors. This is the most careful computa
tion of the number of visitors in Washington
that can bo made , nnd is not iu excess of the
number actually present.
As usual the California Knights Templar
have achieved great luurols nnd attracted
unusual attention during iho conclave. Their
headquarters at the Normandio iiuvo been
open day and night slnco they arrived on
Sunday. Tno luscious things of Iho Pacific
slope , fruus , wines , clc. , have been on tap
constanlly , and u bounteous spread procured
by the best caterers in Washington always
greeted the visitors who called at their head
quarters. They capped the climax this after
noon by visiting Newspaper Row with loads
of the most delicious California raisins , tigs
und other fruit. They handed out Iho boxes
With Iho injunction that "tho proof of the
puddiiicr is in the eating thereof , " nnd de
clared that there was no better advertise
ment for anything than n sample of the ar
ticle itself. The hospitality of the Californians -
nians hns only been equalled by the natural
products of their clime.
Nebraska Knights Templar are greatly
pleased over the selection of Denver as the
place for holding the next triennial conclave.
j. noy woruua .ia u , miuy unu line ueavors rur
the city In Ihe Rockies. In fact there was a
combination of the entire section of the
country west of tbo Mississippi in favor of
Denver , but that city had more support from
the outside in the Nebraska coinmnudenes
than from any other source. It was a great
victory for Denver to overthrow the unani
mous report of the committee , which de
clared In favor of Louisv llo. Many of the
knights from Nebraska called at TUB Bcc
bureau this evening to express their gratifi
cation , nnd the Nebraska headquarters has
been heartily congratulated generally and
thanked by the Colorado cominanUorlcs for
Iho hearty and substantial support rendered.
The limp selected , the second Tuesuny in
August , is regarded as Uio most pleasant.
It will bo presidential election year , how-
ovor. The climate of Colorado in August is

sulted : Denver 101 , Louisville 08 , with
some scattering votes.
Nebraska's headquarters will not bo aban
doned until Friday afternoon , although
many of the Sir Knights aud their ladies
will leave to night and to-morrow morning
for various points en route homo. It is
enough to say thnt no knights have enjoyed
themselves moro than these from Nebraska ,
nnd none have made moro lasting friends era
a better reputation at the national capital.
The last of tha visitors from the state will
go out of the city on Saturday.
The knights from lowu and their ladles

sioner Smith received largo bundle of Iho
regulation slips from an Indiana man who is
classed as n congressman. There wcro piti
ful appeals In many of iho oasoe , alleging
nit sorts of precarious conditions nnd depths
of poverty. The uniformity of the appeals ,
and the fact that all alleged good reasons for
making their cases special , excited the sus
picion of the acting commissioner , nnd in
quiry led to the fuel that a firm of pension
ap nts wns "working" the congressman for
Influence. The requests were all returned
with the compliments of the ofllee.
At least two of the republican
congressmen from that state have had at
tempts mndo by this flrm to "worn" their
Influence nnd secure special action for cli
ents' applications. No doubt congressmen
and senators in all slates have thus boon Im
posed upon. The Indiana congressmen have
determined in view of this aspect of pension
affairs to confine their attentions to constit
uents in their own districts whom ithoy can
learn of personally. They will not bo the

For Shooting Ilia Fathcr-in-Liaw.
AunoN , Nob. , Oct. 10. [ Special to TUB
BEK. ] Ilanscrd Garrison is now being tried
for shooting John Myers. The circumstances
relating to the shooting are as follows : Han-
scrd Garrison married a daughter of John
Myers about three years ngo. Ho lived on
a farm in Wheeler county. They did not
live pleasantly together , and the best of feel
ing did npt exist between the Myers family
and Garrison. Mr. Myers moved to Cedar
Rapids. Boone county , last spring and took
lila daughter , Mrs. Garrison , with him.
Legal steps wore taken by Mrs. Garrison to
get.ajllyorcjvJjRhjjnr.agod her -husband.-
Garrison thought If ho could'BCO his wlfoand
speak with her she would not wish a divorce.
He wont to Cedar Itapids on the 20th of last
April , mot John Myers in town and said ho
wanted to see his wife. Mr. Myers told him
not to go near her. Garrison went to the
lioUso. His wife saw him coming nnd went
into the front room and shut the door. Garrison
risen followed her. She told him to stay
out , but ho forced his way in. Mr. Myers
followed Garrison in. Garrison turned upon
him with a revolver nnd llred , but
missed Myors , who jumped toward Gar
rison. As ho did Garrison llred acuin ,
the bullet grazing the side of his head. They
then clinched. Garrison being the stronger ,
nnd as Myers only had ono arm , having lost
the other in the late war , ho got Myors upon
his Iniecs. Ho then put the muzzle of his re
volver to his face and lired the third time ,
the bullet entering Iho face close to the right
side of the nose , passing through the head
and coining out above the left oar. Garrison
then made for Mrs. Alvors , who was in the
kitchen , and as aho went out of the door Garrison
risen lired at her and struck her in Iho shoul
der. At this tlino his wife caught him nnd
ho dropped the revolver. Mrs. Myors re
covered from iho effects of the wound she
Garrison Is snid to bo of n good family , who
live in Chicago. At the ago of sixteen years
ho had a sunstroke , and since then has been
somewhat peculiar. The defense will en
deavor to show that Garrison Is insane nnd
not responsible for the shooting. Garrison's
brother nnd sister , of Chicago , are hero at
tending the trial. The trial will bo lengthy ,
as there are many witnesses to testify. Garrison
risen appears very nervous. After giving in
his own testimony yesterday ho brolio down
and cried after going to his scat. There is
not tlio usual amount of interest taken in the
caso. Perhaps it is because murder cases are
becoming common in Boone county.
