LOXDOV , Nov. 15. [ Now York Herald
Cnllo Special to TUB BEE. ] The Impend
ing panic on the stock exchange nnd among
great commercial houses , the horrible con
troversy of Barttclot and Jameson , the approaching
preaching session and nil other topics are
cast In the shade by the Interest taken In the
dlyorco suit of Captain O'Shea.
It will bo remembered that O'Shea wns the
medium employed by the Gladstone govern
ment in 1SS2 to communicate with Parncll ,
then in prison nt Kllmnlnham. Ills negotia
tions resulted in the celebrated Kilinalnham
treaty , under which Parncll nnd his fellow-
prlsoncri were liberated and promised to glvo
general support to the liberal party. At that
tlmo and for long afterwards O'Shca was on
most confidential terms with Parncll , greatly
to the disgust of many Parnellites , who nl-
wnys distrusted him. Tim Hcnly , especially ,
followed him up with an exceedingly sharp
stick , nnd ulthough Pnrncll Insisted on re
turning him to the house of commons n second
end time , ho did not Jong remain thcro.
\Vhnt happened afterwards to boring about a
total breach In the relations between Parnell
nnd O'Shca must bo largely a matter of con
jecture. It could not have been a new
development In domestic affairs , but all nt
once O'Shca took an attitude towards the
Irish leader , which has culminated In the
present suit
Bearing in mind that upon the result de-
pind's Parnell's future position In public life ,
the interest attaching to the proceedings
need cause no surprise. Should Judgment go
ngalnst Pnrnoll , It U not doubted that ho
must practically rollro from the leadership of
bis party , and I have reason to believe thnt
this is the opinion In which ho liolds himself In
n very decided manner , nnd It will stand or
fall by the verdict of the jury.
I understand thnt O'Shca Is confident of
the result of the trial being in his favor , and
has "brought together a mass of evidence cal
culated to damage tho'defendant. It would
not be difficult , considering the very close ro-
Intlons which hnvo existed between nil the
parties , to do as much as this. Mrs. O'Shea
Is thought to hnvo made a false move In en
deavoring tp procure a postponement , of the
trial , nnd it Is no secret thnt she regards the
proceedings with much nervousness , ns she
iiilghtwcll do in any case. Parnell himself
Is silent , nnd , Indeed , hns been Invisible for
weeks past. Even his lawyers have not al
ways known where to find him. It may bo
mentioned that thcro nro children In the
O'Shen household , nnd one of the jnost pain
ful features in the case will turn upon the
destiny of these.
While the trial cannot but glvo rise to most
painful charges or susplclons,3nnd the home
rule party generally , Including Olndstonlniis ,
will wutch It with breathless attention , no
little surprise was manifested when it was
called today before Justice Butt. The court
was crowded , of course , but the spectators
were not of 11" * variety expected at such a
trial. Ladles were scarce and thousands of
the fair sex will gnash their tcoth to think
of the chance they have missed.
When the nnnoxincomcnt wns made by
Lockwood , who represented Mrs. O'Shca ,
that ho would take no part lu the case , every
body i gnsiwd. They gasped again when
the judge asked If anyone appeared for the
co-respondent and the only reply was a dead
silence. On every sldo the question asked
was "Whatdocs It mean ! " On every sldo
the answer was a shrug of shoulders. The
general Impression may bo wrong , but It is-
that Parnell hns thrown up his hands.
His action recalls a llttlo story I heard some
tlmo ngo. Mrs. O'Shoa lived nt Kltlmm.
Colonel North lives there , too. Parnol , It is
snld , lived there also. One morning a ballilT
walked into the garden Captain O'Shcn's
garden. In his hand was a writ. He saw a
man in the garden and presented the man
with the writ. The man said ! "What tlio
devil do you mean ? " The bailiff said : "You
ore Captain O'Sheal" The man said : "lam
not. " Ttio man told the truth. Ho was Pnr-
nell. Not. a few people at Elthatn thought
Parnell was O'Shca.
Stories llko tills might have nn ef
fect on the jury.
At nny rate Parnell .lies perdu , and Mrs.
O'Shoa , after nn unsuccessful effort to drag
her sister , Mrs. Stcclo , Into the case , ns
guilty of adultery with O'Shea , follows the .
example of the loader of the homo party. It
is curious how women In light quarters of
Ji this Idtid will try to drag in others. Lady
Colin Campbell tried to shift her sins on her
sister's shoulders. In her ease the slstor
wns dead nnd could make no defense ; Mrs.
O'Shoa's sister , however , Is nltvo and vigor
ously objects to playing the victim.
Solicitor General Sir Edward Clarke Inder-
wick and Lewis Coward appeared for
O'Shea. The former said Captain
O'Shen sought n divorce from his wife
on the ground of her adultery with Parncll.
Lockwood and Piitchard were supposed to
represent Mrs. O'Shea until Lockwood , for
both , said ho did not Intend to take part iu
the proceedings.
The solicitor general said that , though the
case stood as undefended , ho was bound to
put sufficient evidence before the jury , but It
was not necessary to enter into some of the
details unless the case was seriously con
tested. AVhen the petition for divorce wns
filed December 21 of last year , Parnell put In
n simple denial. Mrs. O'Sfcca did moro ; she
made counter charges and imputed thnt ho
had connived for years at adultery , which
Parncll denied , The pica of connivance was
EO remnruablo that tlio solicitor general felt
hound to call attention to it. Ho then told
liow Mrs. O'Shca nnd Parnell. became uc-
, qualntod and how the acquaintance ripened.
But O'Shca also told a story and I will allow
tun to tell it hero.
O'Shca ' looked careworn'when ho stepped
into the box. Ho spoke low , but distinct.
Ono among the listeners was his son , Gerald
O'Shca , who occupied a retired seat. O'Shca
paid ho married ICnthorino Wood January 24 ,
1607. After tue marriage they stayed in
Madrid for some tlmo In the interest of a
bank thoro. The family is of Spanish origin.
There were three children of the marriage.
In 1831 ho was elected member of parliament
lor West CUres. Ho was soon aftcrwnid In
troduced to Parncll by O'Oarmou Mnhou und
inrltod Parnoll to Thomas' hotel and Introduced -
ducod him to his wife. In 1681 he hud a
quarrel with his wife about Parncll'a visits ,
Which he discovered by accident. He wont
to the Salisbury club and wrote the following
challenge to Parnell t
/51is-WUl you please be so kind as to bo at
Lisle or any other town In the north of Franco
which may suit your convenience on Sntur-
day , the HJth lnst.1 Please let mo know by I
p. in. today whether to expect you on that day
so that I may bo aolo to inform you ns to the
sign of the inn at which I shall stay. I nwalt
your answer In order to lese no time In
arranging for a friend to accompany mo.
Ho received no answer , but Mrs. Stcclc ,
who saw Parncll , assured him his suspicions
were groundless. According to Parnell's '
story , Mrs. O'Shea assured him nothing was
wrong nnd thcro was n reconciliation. The
Imprisonment of Parncll followed. As stated ,
O'Shea took an active part In obtaining Par-
ncll's rclc.isc. After Parnell's release he got
In good health nnd O'Shea Invited him to
Klthain. Mrs. O'Shca afterwards went to
Brighton , Parnell visited her there or nt
Medina tcrmco. In 1884 ho went to Lisbon ,
nnd on his rcturm heard rumors that Parncll
hud been at Kltlmm. llo wrote to Pamell ,
accusing him of bad faith. Pnrncll denied
any ground for scandal- did Mrs. O'Shca.
When ho started for Oalway last year , Gen
eral Elston beard statements about Parncll
nnd Mrs. O'Shea. Ho remonstrated with his
wife , nnd she said her acquaintance with
Piirncll was for political purposes.
Mr. Imterwlck asked O'Shca If his wife
had told Mm anything about Parnoll. O'Shca
said she told him thnt Parncll had been se
cretly married In 1SSO.
Ho invlted'l'arneU to call at Eltham. On
thcso occasions ho { Mr. Parnell ) returned to
town on the evening train. Ho had no knowl
edge of his returning the same evening and
staying at his houso. In May , 1SSU , ho snvf a
paragraph in a London newspaper about
them nnd ho telegraphed Mrs. O'Shca asking
what it meant. On May So , 1SSO , ho got a
letter from her stating she had not the slight
est Idea what It meant , nnd she did not sco
that It had anything to do with them. Ho
suggested thnt they go to a solicitor's and sco
whether they could not toke proceedings
against the newspaper , but she argued that
the proceedings would only brlng'tho scandal
Into creator prominence.
On Juno 8 ho went to Carlsbad and she
went to Eastbourne. Ho went toEnstbourno
for two days nnd stayed at the Queen's ' hotel.
Before going to Carlsbad ho wrote to her
from abroad on August 20 , 18SO. Ho wrote to
her thnt It would Do advisable not to settle
anything definitely till ho returned. Mean
while ho forbade her to have any com
munication directly or indirectly with Mr.
Pnrnell , and sugccstcd thnt she should con
sult her brother , Sir Evelyn Wood , or n so
licitor acting for her. On September 13 ,
1880 , ho saw a paragraph stating that Par
nell had been staying at Eastbourne during
the summer. On October 10 , 1SS < ) , ho wrote
to the effect that what had appeared In the
newspapers about her and Parncll wns to
put an cud to his public life , and thatns she
would not consent to do ns ho suggested ,
ho must seek some other arrange
ment. In December , ISSfl , ho saw moro
paragraphs la the newspapers nud on April
11 ! ho received n letter from his son stating
that as ho came In by a back way ho heard
the volco of that awful scoundrel , Parncll.
Ho bad nsked his mother if It svas ho and she
said ho had como to town , and ho thought it
better for his father to Itnow ubout it.
Ho next got a letter from his solicitor stat
ing that Mrs. O'Shea Indignantly denied that
ho had the least ground for his suspicions.
On April 22,187 , ho wrote to Parnell tnat it
had como to his knowledge thnt ho con
tinued to communicate with Mrs. O'Shca ' ,
and ho now asked him to discontinue !
It. In June , 18b7 , ho had reason to believe
that Mrs. O'Shca had broken oft the compli
cation with Mr. Parnell , untl a paragraph
appeared In the Times stating that Parncil
was living nt Brockiey under the name of
Preston. In September , 1SS9 , ho saw moro
paragraphs In the newspapers in reference to
Parncll and ho then consulted his solicitors.
Ho knew of his wife living at a house In
Brighton in the end ot 1SSO , and ho went
down there and stayed at a hotel and nnly
saw Mrs. O'Shca at the theater on that occa
sion. On Ucccmoer 10,1880 , ho received
Information that led him to suspect
that Parnell wns living in the house , and ho
therefore Instructed his solicitors and the
petition was filed.
O'Shea was asked if the charge was true
that ho committed adultery with Mrs. Steclo.
lie said that It was not true and had never
heard of it until he saw it In the pleadings in
1681.
1681.Mrs.
Mrs. O'Shea nnU Mrs. Stcelo were on most
affectionate terms , but afterwards ill feeling
arose between them owing to a probable suit.
This suit is anent the will of Lady Wood ,
sister of Sir Evelyn. Wood , who died
some tlmo ago. She was a saving soul and
had 200,000 at her bankers' . She left money
to Mrs. O'Shea ' , and thcro ore some ugly
rumors afloat about undue Influence. Thcso
may bo groundless , but there promises to bo
a contest.
O'Shca was followed by Harriott Bull , who
wns in service where Mrs. O'Shca lived nt
Brighton. She recognized Parncll by a
photograph as tno man who visited Mrs.
O'Shea every day. Ho stayed long nr.d when
ho came everybody but Mrs. O'Shca went
out. Ho frequently stayed until 11 nt night.
Ho slept In the house ono night. On ono
occasions ho went to Mrs. O'Shea's bedroom
to speak to nor nnd heard Pnrnell's voice.
The door was locked and she saw them como
outtbroo quarters of aa hour Inter. Caroline.
Pctbera , cook nt Medina Terrace , said Par
ncll visited Mrs. O'Shca ns Charles Stewart.
Ho came to the house by a back way and had
a cloth cap pulled over his eyes. Ho used to
drlvo Mrs. O'Shea about at night , but never
in the day. When not driving they were
locked In a room together , sometimes for
hours. Whenever she had a mcssago to Mrs.
O'Shea witness would have to wait outsldo
the doors five or ten minutes. Mrs. O'Shen
would then como to the door nnd open It an
inch or two. Captain O'Slicn once called
when Parncll was In the drawing room. It
was dark , nnd Mrs. O'Shea would not have
the gas lighted nnd witness went down
stairs. Immediately afterwards Captain
O'Shen ' rang the street door bell nnd came in
und a few 'minutes Inter Parncll , who had not
como down stairs , knocked at the front door
nnd asked to see Captain O'Shea. ' There
were two rope fire-i-scnpo ladders la the
houso. [ Laughter. ] On another occasion
Parnoll sat In the drawing room until mid
night. Ho then wont up to bed. Mrs. O'Slicn
followed nnd went Into his room. Witness
nnd her. husband were standing on the land
ing nbovo and saw this. They watted some
tlmo , but as Mrs , O'Sliea did not coma out
they went to bed. Parnell's hot water was
nlwnys taken up to his room by Mrs. O'Shea ,
who would l.rlng down bis orders as to
breakfast.
At this point the case ndjoumpd. As Mrs.
Stcolo was at Brighton , the solicitor general
said there would bo no other -witnesses ready
before Monday. The judge said ! "If you
llko to close the case now I am prepared ton
tell the Jury what I think has been proved. n
The solicitor general said bo preferred to calla
xlld
a few moro witnesses , so the case was ad
journed till Monday.
The case Is the talk of the town nnd you
can get any odds on a verdict for O'Shea.

WALL STREET AGAIN WILD ,
A Eegulnr Panic , Especially Among Hold
ers of Railroad Stocks.
BIG LONDON BANKING FIRM SHORT ,
Ilrotlit rs Find Themselves In a
Xlulit IMnoo ami Arc Forced to
Siical--Tho | Itotliftulitldu
to the Itcsoiie.
Nr.\v YOUR , Nov. IB. The stock market
today during two hours of the session was the
liveliest since the great slump of December
15 , ISSO , and for the space of an hour or moro
there existed a perfect panlo among holders
of securities , especially railroad stocks , and
the declines established during that tlmo were
pi-enter than ever before seen at the same
time. The only cause of excitement was the
announcement from London that the Minn of
Baring Bros , had been forced to seek as
sistance to tldo thoin over the present finan
cial crisis , and holders of stocks ba'.Amo panic-
stricken over the news without reflecting that
the dangers had really already vnssci1 when
the Dank of England and Ilothschlld came to
the rescue.
Early advices froai London were rc&asur-
Ing , and the crisis was represented ns over
there and continuing the Improvement begun
yesterday. First prices were generally frac
tionally higher than yesterday's figures. The
announcement about the Barings was
thrown nt the market Immediately , however -
over , and the good feeling disappeared
In aa instant , and from prospective buyers
the whole i-oom bccamo sellers at the best
prices obtainable. The force of the decline
may bo gathered from the fact that In the
short space of an hour Lackawnnna had
dropped away DV , Jersey Central 7) < f ,
Atchlson 5J , Pullman f % Canada Southern
C ) , Burliigton | 7j , Hock Island G' ' and
others from 2 to fi per cent. The drop , how
ever , soon brought Into the market a class of
buyers who are paying outright , for their soj
cu ritlcs , and the current was soon turned by
this support when the bears Joined In the
buying to rcaluo profits accrued upon the
tremendous drop. The early Belling soon de
veloped tlio fact that thcro were largo selling
orders In the market and the trading nnd
professional element soon took the market
away from the sellers and Innumerable stop
orders were quickly uncovered , rendering
the stampede more serious every minuto.
After the downward movement was
checked the bank statement was
Issued , showing a 'material gain in
the surplus reserve and growing
strength that the banks have no further feel
ing ; of apprehension among Wall street
houses , and the general Impression Is that as
soon as London becomes really quiet there
will bo no disturbing Influence found here.
The rally" which obtained In the first hour
extended to 4 per cent and over In some of
the most pronounced cases , but the upward
movement was Insuillcient to inako 'up any
thing like the losses incurred.and thcro was
an extremely feverish and unsettled condi
tion of the market lu trading throughout.
The close \vas very active and strong for
the moment at material losses for the day.
The final losses were very material nnd
Laclcawnnna was off 45/ , Jersey Central 5 ,
Hock Island 4 , Missouri Pacific 3 % , Atchlson
8 , Burlington ' . % Silver Certificates 2 , and
Northwestern Vi percent. .
Private cables received before the
opening of the stock exchange an
nouncing the troubles of Baring Broth
ers , and stating that the Bank of England ,
the Hothclillds nnd other bankers had taken
up the accounts of Baring Bros , amounting
to 15,000,000. created a profound sensation.
The brokers had a conference nnd decided to
bid an advance at the opening In every
stock that could bo handled , so as
to arrest the sudden shock. As a
result prices for nearly all active stocks
op'iiied Yi to ! J per cent above last night's
close , the extreme-gain being made by North
ern Pacific preferred. Then prices gave way
rapidly in all directions. Atchison fell 2 per
cent , Sugar 2 ! , Lnckawnnna 2 , Western
Union 1J and Big Four % I101' cent in the
first fifteen minutes.
iCldder , Pcabody & Co. , who are the agents
hero for Baring llros. ifc Co. , say thoy.havo
private advices from London that whatever
trouble there may have been Is completely
arranged. The trouble was doubtless caused
by the depression in Argentine securities.
In an interview this afternoon Thomas
Baring said i "It is true that tlio Bank of
England , the Rothschilds nndothc * largo
English banking houses had agreed to guar
antee the credit of the Barings to the extent
of ill,000,000. "
Banker Seligmnn. speaking of the condition
of nffnirs in Wall street , said ho presumed that
if within a reasonable time the market takes
a favorable turn hero and abroad the Barings
will take up their collateral and go on as al
ways. "No one can say this is the beginning
of the end of the Barings , for the simple rea
son that no ono knows anything about it. "
The Evening Post says : ' -Three months
ago , when the Argentine revolution first
began to crlpplo the resources of houses
floating Argentine securities , on examination
of the uTail's ( of the Barings showed a clear
balance of 15,000,000 , over nnd nbovo all lia
bilities. The shrinkage of 11,000,000 , or say
about f.5,000,000 In three months , shows
what a tremendous strain London nuances
have been subjected to. The prospect of n
resuscitation of the value of thcso Agentlno
securities Is good. It Is reported thata meet
ing of the bank presidents of New York Is to
bo held between now and Monday morning
to consider tha financial situation and deter
mine upon n policy of conservatism , If events
should Justlfv or necessitate Joint Interposi
tion in that direction. "

Ttie CniiHo of tlio Panic.
Nnw YORK , Nov. 15. The Evening Sun
says the facts in regard to the extraordinary
monetary situation which has prevailed in
London for the past ten days may bo summed
up authoritatively as follows : Owing
to the extent of their operations in
railroads and lands in South A-merlcn
Messrs. Baring Bros , have been moro or less
embarrassed for over six months. Last
Thursday week the Messrs. Baring nt the
conclusion of business decided that it was
impossible for them to continue , and on Fri
day morning , November 7 , they so notified
the directors of the bank of England ,
who immediately convened and startled
the whole financial world by
raising the rate of discount. The
proceeding was most unprecedented nnd
culled for n halt of speculation at every
money center In the world. The present
week has been ono of most painful suspense
in banking circles and this feeling Is reflected
In a minor degree In Now York , where only
a few of the moro important houses having
European connections have been aware of
the real nature of the difficulty in London.

CHICAGO , Nov. 15. Prices on 'change ' hero

Impossible to do tiny business. December

It Is amazing what anxiety exists to secure
the best scats on the floor of the senate. No
sooner does n senator die than thcro is n rush
81f
for ( the chair ho makes vacant , and bcfuro
the returns are all in from nn election and It
tla
appears thcro will bo changes , then n scram-
% bio is mndo for nny chnngo there may bo m
anticipation on the floor.of the senate. The
rule of the senate provides that whenever It
appears that thcro Is to bo a change In n scat
on the floor by reason of .death , resignation ,
election or otherwise the chair to bo vacated
shall go to the senator who first requests It
of the doorkeeper. In less than
hours after the recent election , or ns soon as
It appeared that Wisconsin bad gone demo
cratic , Wolcott of Colorado , who occupied a
seat on the extreme outsldo wing of tlio re
publican side of the senate , wired Captain
Bnssott , the doorkeeper , saying that ho
wanted Spooner's seat. Ho was promised
the chair by return telegraph. So Senator
J3pooner's chair Is disposed of long
before the tlmo when the legislature
which is to elect his successor convenes. Mr
Stuwart or Nevada and other senators wired
for Spooner's seat , but their applications
cnmo too late. Of course the chnlr will not
bo vacated until March 4 next. Even Sena
tor Ingall's chair Is being fought for by re
publicans who are not so well located ,
although It Is by no means sure that the sena
tor will not succeed himself. Senator Wash-
bum of Minnesota wired his application for
Ingall's chair us soon ns it began to look as
though the democrats and fuslonlsts had se
cured u control of the Kansas delegation.
Learning that this application had been made ,
Chandlcrof Now Hampshire has entered his
application for the scat to bo vacated by the

TKflUctaoi.iM , Honduras , Nov. 15. [ New
Yoru Herald Cable-Special to Tun UBI : . ]
General Longlnos Sanchez , who headed the
recent attempt to overthrow tl.o government
of President Bogr.m , and who , with his
forces , held this the capital city , for the brief
period of ono week , has been captured , and
with the principal leaders of his army has
been shot.
The revolution Is nt nn end. After yester
day's lighting It was n foregone conclusion ,
ns was stated In the Herald , that this would
bo the end. His troops had been defeated in
n series of bloody engagements , nnd
ho , with the brief remainder ,
were penned up In the Son Francisco bar
racks. So , surrounded by a vigilant foreo
flushed with victory , President Bogran last
night had stationed n number of cannon upon
the barracks , and early this morning ho
opened lire. Sanchez nnd his Imprisoned
comrades , knowing thnt death awaited them
In any event , fought with tlio desperate cour-
ngo of despair , but It was n hopeless struggle
from the start. After a brief cannonading
the walls of the barracjts wore almost com
pletely battered down.
Then there was a determined charge of
Bogran's soldiers , a brief but desperate hand-
to-hand fight , nnd then nil that remained
alive ot the rebels were prisoners ,
Without the formality of a court-martial ,
Sanchez with several of the principal officers
engaged In tlio revolt were taken to 0110 of the
principal squares In the city , blindfolded , and
stood In line in the presence of hundreds of
the cltiiciiH. A firing party was told off.
The doomed men were given a brief'tlmo for
prayer. Then the word was given. There
was a crash of muskets , nnd the revolution of
Longlncss Sanchez passed Into history.
Sancho/and his men met their fate without
'
out flinching. The bodies of the dead rebels
were exposed to the public gaze all day , to bo
n warning to future aspirants to the presiden
tial chair who desire to get supreme power
by foreo of arms. Snucho/ was not popular
with the citizens of Tegucigalpa , and the sym
pathies of tlio people were altogether with
Brogan. Hence , though nearly everybody
was grieving over the death or wounding of
some relative or friend , thcro was general re
joicing over the signal victory of the govern
ment troops. General Sanchez , during his
brief term of power , caused two of the mem
bers of President Bogran's cabinet to ho shot.
Onooftho executed ministers was Simeon
Martinez.

All Europe is still discussing Koch's con
sumption euro. So far as known the treat
ment consists of Injection under the skin of a
clear brownish llimld. The place for the In
jection Is between the shoulder blades in the
region of the loins. The liquid soon produces
constitutional disturbance such as nausea ,
shivering and n rise in temperature , but the
first effects soon pass and If the patient Is in
ordinary health nothing further will ensue.
Koch has proved the effect on himself. If
the patient Is suffering from scrofula and
secondary action begins , it fixes upon the
diseased spots and proceeds to cure. It has
not been shown to do this In
a demonstrable way In consumption.
The process is hidden from observation.
Koch sees the curative action with the eye of
faith. Ho says : "Nevertheless wo are Justi
fied In assuming that bore , too , changes take
place similar to those seen In lupus cases. "
Ho says the remedy does not kill tubercular
bacilli but tuberculous tissue. Kocks state
ments regarding the cure of pulmonary con
sumption nro carefully guarded nnd one of his
claims Is that It will in the future form an in
dispensable aid In diagnosis. The English
medical iraternlty Is disposed to bo hopeful ,
for the benefit ptomlsed Is so , great that re
sponsible persons dccllno to scout them ; but
the consumption cure doe i not now seem to bo
so popular as the first , announcement of the
discovery warranted the public in believing.
