P.uus , Oct , 17. [ Now York Herald Cabla
-Special to TUB Hr.K.1 The majority of
French papers comment upon the Interview
which u member of the staff of lOmo Slcclo
mauo Leon Say undergo. The account
of his interview , M published by
the lUmo Sicclc , Is completed nnd
explained by an article published In the
Journal DCS Debuts , which , If It does
not cmnnato from Leon Say himself , has ev
idently been written by his direct inspira
tion. 1'Yoni the Interview und the article in
the DCS Dobnts It appears that M. Say r.nd
his friends reject the Idea of n policy having
for Its aim the realization of ropuBllcnn con
centration , to bo obtained by means of con
cessions made by the moderates to
the radical party. Whllo admitting that
parliamentary groups may not bo reconsti
tuted upon the snmo model as these of the
old chamber , Leon Say docs not think It
cither possible or desirable that nil the re
publicans , radicals , opportunists nnd moder
ates should join in ono group. Tlio only
result of the adulation of all
these opinions of the most different
nnd contradictory character would bo a pol
icy without tiny precise direction , n govern
ment without principle or programme , a
ministry without homogeneity. If tlio radi
cals will accept the program mo of the uiod-
crate republicans they will bo welcomed , but
the moderates will not inako any conces
sion to obtain their concourse. Leon Say ,
enys the Journal DCS Debuts docs not deslro
n government which will bo the prisoner
cither of the radicals or of the members of
the right. Ho desires u government which
nhull Bland by itself , but which is composed
In uuch manner nnd id based upon such prin
ciples that. It will Inspire moderation in the
right and left and w ill bo accepted by tlio
moderates and the real conservatives of
every party.
The republican journals , beginning with
Lo Temps and La Kopubliquo IVanenls , nro
strong in their criticism of the ideas put for
ward by Mr. Leon Say. They accuse him
of causing { divisions among the republicans.
To them the policy imposed is one of repub
lican concentration. The ministry of
their dreams is ono which would combine
ingeniously the ideas of M. Floquot
and those of M. Mcliuo or At. Hobot , nud
which would keep an equilibrium between
radicalism and moderation. This would be
purely and simply a continuation of tbo sys
tem followed by the last legislature. It is
only hoped that thu radicals , becoming wiser ,
will bo loss exigent than in the past aud will
overthrow the cabinet less often.
There are thus two well-dollncd currents
of opinion and scnsiblo discord which mani
fests itself between tlio opportunists and the
modcrata republicans of the loft center. The
declaration of M. Leon Say is of great im
portance because it shows on what condi
tions ho and Ids friends would bo disposed to
enter Into a ministerial combination.
It is not nt nil impossible
that these conditions nro accepted ,
yet entirely different tendencies predominate
ut present in the majority of the republican
party and notably in the opportunist group.
It may therefore bo predicted that it will not
bo a cabinet of the loft center directed by M.
Loon Sny or by any other politician of
the same shade that will imme
diately succeed the present cabinot.
It will bo n cabinet of republican concentra
tion , llttlo different from that presided over
by M. Tlrnrd , and which will follow an
analogous policy. If it fails in its attempt ,
then perhaps it would bo necessary to try
some other combination.

Secretary Wlndorn has boon expected
dally this week to make n decision on the
Imported load question. Great pressure has
boon brought to bear by Now Yorkers In
terested ana miners in Utah nnd Montana to
have him reverse the old decision.
It is predicted that ho will make an order
which will meet tbo demands of the Ameri
can producers and protect their Interests ,
nnd that the president In bis message to
congress will not us It for further legislation
cu the subject.
General A. H. Campbell , of Kansas , who
was at ono time frequently mentioned as the
probable commissioner of pensions , is hero
and says It is not true , ns reported from To-
pckn , that ho has been tendered the consu

The secretary of the interior to-day de
cided the cnso of Francis W. Conloy vs John
Price , from the North I'lntto land ofllco. In
volving tlio northeast quarter of the north
east quarter of section , and the north half
of the northwest quarter of section ! 3J , town
ship IG north , range 2'J west , Nebraska.
Tbo decision rendered Is in favor of Con
loy , and it nfllrms tbo commissioner's find
ing. Mr. Conlov will bo recognized ns the
editor of the CAllnwny Headlight. The land
was llrst entered by ono Perry , who aban
doned It. Tlio government instituted pro
ceedings against it by an inspector of land
entries. Conloy hearing of this , built u house
on the land and moved his family into it.
Ho has over since lived on the land. For
reasons not stated the government proceed
ings were suspended and Perry allowed to
contest the entry. Ueforo his contest tiegan
Conloy applied for the land but was refused ,
Perry's entry being intnet. Conloy then ap
plied to contest Perry's entry. Ho
was refused , as Price was n
prior applicant. Price defaulted at the
hearing , nnd it was dismissed , but ho ob
tained n second hearing. Conley hearing of
the dismissal , applied to contest , but was ro
fuscd. ns Price had been allowed u second
hearing. ' 1 hen the Perry entry was can
celled. Notice of tills fact was mailed Price
Juno 0 , ISs" , but Price claimed the mailing
was on July It ) nnd that ho received notice
July 15. Hut Price made homestead entry
on July'7 , 1SS5. Conley also made applica
tion on Juno I , 1SS3. In August Conley con
tested the entry of Price , claiming it to bo
fraudulent and speculative ; that Price had
not made entry in thirty days from the no
tice of the cancellation of Perry's entry , and
because Price had not settled ou the land and
improved it as required bv law.
The local oflicers found for Conloy nnd
their action was nfllruied by the commission
er. Price appealed to the secretary of the
interior. The secretary holds the following
irregularities on the part of the register and
recorder :
a 1. The suspension of thocontest by the gov
ernment and the allowance of contest by Price
because his contest gave him n preference
right of entry to which ho wns not entitled.
Price's contest should have been received
but hold in nbeyanco to the result of tuo
government's contest.
0. The rejection of Conley's application to
contest. It should have been received ,
but held m abeyance to await the result of
Price's contest. Conloy should have ap
pealed so it might have been of record when
Price's llrst application to contest was dis
3. Tlio register nnd receiver should have
rcpiatered the notice sent Price of the can
cellation of Perry's entry.
4. The entry of Conloy was made prema
turely. Hut on the merits of the case tbo
secretary approves of the improvements
mndo by Conley nnd sustains his charges
against Price that his contest was bpecula-
tivo nnd in bad faith.
The secretary also rendered n decision In
the case of A. II Tuttle vs. John C. Parkin ,
involving homestead entry upon the south
half of the southeast quarter of section 1
and the north half of the northeast quarter
of section 2 , township 25 , range 60 , Cnadron
district , and also cash entry 942 of John C.
Parkin. A dispute arose on the publication
of the notice to make llnal prooi , improve
ments , etc. The decision of tno land ofllco
overruling the motion for n contest is de
clared to bo erroneous. The assistant secretary -
rotary of the interior declares that the proof
should never have boon accepted , and the
cas is remanded with Instructions to direct
the local ofllcsrs to require the heirs of Par
kin to make now proof , after now notice ,
nnd that the appellant , Tuttle , bo specially
cited to appear at the tlmo nnd place fixed ,
nnd then that proceedings bo neld in the
same manner ns in cases. Thus the
decision below is reversed.
Although foreign powers have for almost a
year been experimenting with smouclcss gun
powder and talking about its results , it was
only a few days ago that the ordnance de
partment of our navy concluded to look into
the subject seriously.
During the next three weeks some tests
are to he made In this country. However
slow our army ofllolals may appear to have
been In experimenting with smokeless gun
powder , they nave kept pace with the times.
Upon nil occasions whcro its claims were
presented by an oltlclal test In Kuroro the
United States had its representatives
present , and there have boon several onicial
reports filed upon this subject with the sec
retary of war. Although the attempt 1ms
been made to kccu the composition of this
now oxplcnlvo n secret , wo know pretty
nearly or what It Is made. Dynamite aud
gun cotton enter largely into Us com position.
Castor oil is also used in some samples. The
newspaper account of all the tests made thus
far in Kuropo nro flattering and predict a
revolution in modern warfare. Ofllclal nud
Impartial statements put the matter In u
different light.
The combustion of ono sampla of the
smokeless powder produces such nn over
powering Dtonch that it sickens persons com
pelled to bo in the vicinity.
In other cases the results are so uncertain
that the practical utility of the invention is a
matter of serious doubt.
if it is discovered that practical nnd per
manent results nro likely to bo the outcome
of the tests , investigations will bo carried on
Indefinitely until the merits or dements of
tbo scheme have been developed.
Theru is n craze now for tbo adoption of
rifles of greater calibre than heretofore , In.
vestigatlons have boon in progress in this di.
rcctlon for nearly two years.

Rvnrvtttlnir On the Qnl Vivo.
CHICAGO , Oct. J7. Great excitement pre
vailed about the grand jury room this morn-
Witnesses cauio nna went nnd ofllcors
were dispatched hero nnd there rapidly , nnd
oppcnrancos Indicated that something Im
portant was in progress.
The llrst witness was n man named Kelly ,
When ho en mo out ho refused to talk to the
reporters Henry Stoltcnbcrg1 , stenogra
pher in Wludcs it Sullivan's ofllco , was Infer
for half an hour and when ho came out
ho rushed off in a grout hurry to Und Mr.
Wlmlcs. After ho had disappeared that gen
tleman made his way into the court house
nnd was examined by the grand Jury. When
ho cauio out of tlio room ho said to the re
porters thut ho hadn't tofd the grand jury
much because ho didn't know anything they
wished to hear. Ho had como in the interest
of Stoltenborsr.
At 1 o'clock the grand fry carao
into court nnd handed in twelve
Indictments , eleven of which were
ou jail cases , und the twelfth was n , joint
bill against Mark Solomon , John Graham ,
Thomas Kavnnngh , Fred Smith , Jeremiah
O'Donnoll , Alexander L. Hanks and Joseph
II. IConcii. Alt these man were already
under Indictment for conspiracy to bribe
After Mr. Windes left the grand jury room
ho asked State's Attorney Longenuckor for
an order to see Stoltonborg. Thu state's
attorney wrote something on a cant and Mr.
Wmues went to his olllce , where the policeman -
man on guard refused to lot him In. The
attorney wont away , but returned with an
application for a writ of habeas corpus ask
ing for Stoltcnborg's ' release. The matter
was set , for hearing nt1 p. in. . but as in the
meantime Stoltcnbcrg hudxbccn released ,
the application was withdrawn.
Stoltenberg refused to answer any ques
tions put to him before the grand jury until
ho could sco an attotnoy. Ho declared ho
was unlawfully restrained of his liberty nnd
that ho could give no tostimouy under du
ress.No jurors were obtained to-day in the
Cronlu trial. Four places remain yet to bo
filled. The defense still have eight peremp
tory challenges and the stuto thlrty-threo.
For the lirst time since his arrest on the
charge of conspiracy to murder Dr. Cronin ,
Attorney John F. Hoggs , senior guardian of
Camp 20 , Clan-iia-Gacl , to-day consented to
an interview by a representative of the press.
"It is reported , Mr. Uegrs , that you have
confessed and will bo a witness for the state.
Is that true ? " ho was asked.
"No , " indignantly reported the senior
guardian , "theru is no more truth in that
story than there has been in any of the other
stories publisnod about mo. It was all a
'fake. ' Hut what is the use of denying these
stories ? The papers treat us as if wo were
outlaws. I can merely tav that I should hate
to bo in a position whereby I would bo en
abled to make a'squeal. ' I am not guilty ,
linvo no guilty knowledge and therefore can
not confess'to , anything in connection with
the crime which lam charged with. "
According to the Dally News the omnibus
indictment returned this afternoon was n
useless proceeding , except on the theory that
the persons npnlnst whom it was brought ,
all of whom were already under indictment ,
have baen made subject to some now charge.
The state's attorney has declined
to allow the new indictment
to bo seen , and this is taken as an indication
that a new charge lias been made against the
alleged jury fixers. It Is suggested that the
accused nio to bo put in the same boat ns the
Cronin suspects , as accessories after the
fact. All the persons rcindieted wore again
an estcd , except Uailift Salomon , who , it is
supposed , will confess. Graham secured
bail , but the others were kept in confine
The News explains the proceedings regard
ing Stoltenberg by stating that Otto Uricson
and William Dahl had informed the state's '
attorney of a mysterious correspondence
which StoltenbcrR. had conducted in July
through Dahl Letters had been received
for Stoltcnberg from Toronto enclosed in en
velopes mailed for Dahl. The efforts last
night in the state's attorney's ofllco to make
Stoltenberg disclose what ho know-about the
letters proved fruitless.

It Proves No SnlVgiinrtl Against the
Wiles of Politicians.
Cmo\oo , Oct. 17. [ Special Telegram to
TUB Hni : . 1 The recent primary election
law of Illinois , which was supposed to provide -
vide every safeguard uerainst the wiles of
politicians , seems to bo qulto ns subject to
manipulation us the former statute. The
Chicago election commissioners met to-day
to investigate the bcrious charges which have
liccn made , and at the sumo tlmo to ascer
tain the best method of punishing the vie
lators. Strange to say , the most sensational
charge is made against Hcprcsnntutivb
William Kent , ono of tlio legislators who
vo tea for trm enactment of the law ho is
charged with violating.
A. S. Newman , Judge of election , testified
that n few days before the primary was
hold ho was approached by n friend of Kent ,
who asked if tie did not doslro to bo tollovud
from his duties as judge for the balauca of
the year. Mr , Newman said it was an irk-
seine duty. "All right , " said the follow , ' !
will have you relieved. "
Sure enough , on primary day another man
was the judge in Newman's ' place. Tlio roc.
ords in the election commissioners' ofllco
show the entry after Newman's name ,
"moved out , " yet Mr. Newman had never
thought of leaving the precinct.
Commlttceincn Kent nnd Downey are hold
to bo the guilty parties , but the commission
ers find themselves embarrassed us to just
how to Institute criminal proceedings against
the conspirators , The election law 1ms no
provision which clearly fills the case , but It
was an evident attempt to nullify the law ,
nnd Hint in itself Is a crime. This 1s ttio
llrst flagrant violation of the election laws
in Chicago since Joe Muchly was sent to
Jollet for li vo years for ballot box mulling.

Cniciao , Oct. ir. ( Telegram to
Tin : Hiii.l : It leaked out to-day that the
northwestern rends will Join tlio Southern
Pacific in its forthcoming dcmaml on con
gress for legislation protecting roads In the
Unltoil States from the unchecked competi
tion of Canadian line * . The assistance of
the northwestern lines will bo duo partly to
the fact Hint they feel most keenly the effect
of competition , iind pirtly bcoauso the cen
tral trunio and trunk lines Issue Joint tnrlffa
with Canadian line * and rofOso to iio so with
the western ro.uis. Said t\n ngenl of ono of
the northwestern roads lo-dny ;
"Senator Davis , of Minnesota , claims there
will ho no legislation nt the coming session of
congress against Canadian roads , but
I thlnlc ho is mistaken. The chances
nro that when navigation closes rates to the
northwest will ho raised. Tlio "Son" has
imrcod to an ndvnuca und the Chleago-SU
1'uul lines will cortnlnly agree. Our line has
never been In favor of the 15 cent propor-
tlonal rate between Chicago und St. Paul ,
which the Uurlington & Not thorn forced ou
us , but if the ruto is raised to ! 10 cents wo
want all ttio trnnio wo can get. If the rates
nro raised theio will still exist the same dis
crepancy between tlio local and proportion
of the through rates , which Is now 10 cents
for tlio former ami 15 cents for the latter.
Ucmeinber , too , Mint wo can only carry
through trafilc at the 15-cont
rate from lines which issno joint
tariffs with us. Otherwise Judge Coole.v .4
has adjudged suoh tariff Illegal. 1 don't sen
any right or justice in the eastern roads
practically robbing us of tnifllo and turning
It over to foreign corporations. Mono of thu
northwestern roiuls , except the Burlington &
Northern , care particularly now whether
tlio eastern roads issno tnriffs jointly with
us or not , out if the rates can bo raised to u
paying basis you will sco u kick that will
amount to something. "
