Oroon today , when thottmcplocoof Kobert Hay Hamilton was laid before hltn by the dead lawyer's ' brother , who ha * Jmt arrived from America with a commission empowering Consul Post to tike evidence proving the tlcatti. Dr. Grtcn turned to mo and said : "I wish the Herald would sny there Is not tbo slightest truth In the wild , fantastic stories nflont. Hamilton Is dead nnd ho un doubtedly was drowned whllo trying to ford a stream on horseback after dark. The Idea that n corpse was dressed up Iu Hamilton's clothes Iu order that ho mlirht quietly disap pear In sotno distant land whcro the story of his bigamous wlfo and bogus baby could not follow him Is absurd. To carry out such a 'theory ono would hnvo to assume n murder , for In no ether way could a corpse bo pro- curd" ! . Jackson's Ilolo valley , whore the body wni found , is surrounded by high moun tains , and Point Snake river , where the tragedy occurred , Is over ono hundred nnd fifty miles from Kentucky , the nearest rail way station. The suggestion of sutclilo Is equally foolish. "Mr. Hamilton was riding with his dop from his ranch at ono end of Jackson's Inlco to his ranch at the other end , 11 ftoon miles. Ills workmen , who were building a sort of log hotel , had cornptalnod that they needed Trcsh meat. Mr. Hamilton was , therefore , nnxlous to kill some g.imo and was led out of Ills path by an antclopo which ho klllod. It was probably after dark , because the mon fjonernlly wind their watches at dusk In the wilderness , and when I examined 3VIr. Hamilton's watch , I found it had stopped n few minutes past 9 and had only run down n couple of snake turns ot the winder. Ho had to cross the river to reach the ranch and -v there was nn Inviting looltlnR bar stretching Into the stream , Just where the body was discovered , but the water beyond was deep nnd swift and full of wood ) . Hamilton , weighted with a full cartridge bolt , had huge npurs , which , no doubt , caught In the woods. The saddle was pulled under the horse's belly nnd so the nog was able to pot nt the antelope's haunchs which were tied to It nnd keep himself alive , during the eleven days , before tbosearchors came upon the place. Until this moment , I have kept the secret of the real 1'oason for which the face of the corpse could hot bo recognized. I did not want to shock the family. The fact Is. It w.is not only swollen nnd discolored In a most nwful way , hut the fishes or turtles had mutilated It as the body floated , face downward , of course. AH the blood settled at the bottom and Ham ilton's father could not have told anything about the corpse except by the clothing or private marks. I wish the Herald would say that I strongly object to the statement that I Lave , nt any time , identified the corpso. "I did not know Hamilton la llfo , and cvon If I had , It would not have bettered the case. The reason why Hamilton was tiot missed BOonor Is very simple. Ills partner , Sargont , was in the ranch at ono end or the lake und Mrs. Sargont was In the ranch at the other. Mrs. Sargont supposed ho was with her hus- Tjand and Sargent thought ho was with the wife.Vhcn \ the husband nnd wife met , they knew something had happened , and they called for a general search. They supposed ho had been killed byhorso thieve * nnd it wns through ono of these searching parties that the hunting camp learned the story of the disappearance. Mrs. Sargent told them Mr. Hamilton ihtcndod to go to Now York In October to hnvo his raarriago with Eve. Maun nullified nnd return to the Rockies In the sprint ; nnd stay thcro for the rest of his llfo. I did not meet Sargent , but was told by the men ho had fully Identified the corduroy Jacket , the coat , dark trousers , leggings , gloves and boots of the dead ram as the olothos of Hamilton. Bo- eldos that I found a leather book , of trout flies iu the pocket with the nnmo Hamilton marked In Ink. It will bo Impossible to roach Snrgont for some tltno , as there must bo , nt least , twenty feet of snow on the trail Into Jackson's Ilolo. It is ono of tno wildest , moil Inac cessible valleys In the Kocklos. The trail I followed was the ouu Gonor.il Sheridan cut for President Arthur's Yellowstone park trip. It will bo impossible legally to identify Hamilton's corpsouutil Mr. and Mrs. Sargont nre reached. They nro the onlypcrsons alive who can do it , but no ono need hnvo any doubt that Hamilton is really dead and that ha tiled by accident. The last I saw of the poor follow wus the boat containing the body , covered tvltti green boughs , gradually disappearing In the distance. When I got to the head of the lalto , I stopped n carpenter who was building a house for Hamilton and told Him ho must build another kind of n house , a coflln. ' All the surrounding circumstances show that nothing wa prearranged about the tragedy. Hamilton loft ono ranch to go to the ether ; took with him n horse and dog found near the body. The clothes on the body wore his. Tlio nntolopo haunches ac count for tlio late hour ot the accident and the place whcro it occurred. Ho floated away ; Ills rilln sank In tha stream. Searchers told mo they coultl find it by drugging the bottom but it would bo rusted and use less. Hamilton's blankets wcro loft in the ranch by him , showing that ho did not intend to stop out ever night. Besides no was-full of plans and actually died while they were In progress. I have no pitlonco with these who say the failure to bring the body to Now York U suspicious. The body was buried on my ndvico. I am a physician. I examined It to see If there wcro nny evidences of crlino nnd my duty to society was ended. Then I told the people there , that , as the corpse had boon In the water olcvon days nnd was bloat ed to such an extent that by the tlmo It was carried a hundred mid fifty miles to a railway It would bo In a condition that would compel the railroad to refuse It transportation , the project was out of the question , and so I said llatly that tbo body must bo burled at Jackson's Hole. "At Mrs. Sargent's request , oao of our party photographed the hillside whcro Hani- llton onca said ho would love to bo burled. You may bo sure , when Sargent Is reached , lie will knock all these iliino novel theories to pieces nud establish the death ot Hamilton perfectly. Ho is a mau of education and in- telllsronco. " This was substantially Ihe story Dr. Green also repeated to Consul 1'ost under oath. Ho positively denied any Identifica tion. Parnoll ( o OMlrlon. LONDON , Fob. 11 , 1'arnoll , in a letter to 'O'Brien , says : "Tho last luforinatlon 05111 convoyed to mo on our negotiations being of a final character , I concluded that nothing X U loft to bo iloao on my part but to bring our endeavor * to a closo. I roRrot that It baa not been rendered possible for mo to consider national Interests so safely guarded that I could feel thcro would bo no danger to the cause In my now surrendering the responsi bility which hai boon placed upon mo and which I have accepted from the hand * of our nation nnd rnco.

William O'llrlon has Issued another long statement on the Irish situation. Ho says : "Tho experience of the past llvo weeks , gathered from personal Interviews , letters nnd news papers , completely confirms my ton- vlctton that only reunion can save the Irish cause.-noferringto the ro- ccnt Boulogne conference ho soys : "lean- not too strongly express with what feelings wo found a sottlcmcnt so vital shipwrecked at the last moment by tnoro contests of words and phrases contests which , to my mind , offers a shockingly Inadequate excuse for committing the country to a struggle Involving consequences so ap palling. " In conclusion O'Brien save : "Ono of the saddest things In this traflic business is that circumstances rendered it Impossible to give organized effect to the overwhelming public longing for a reconciliation whllo the field is held by heated partisans who iavo done their worst by exasperating language and Insulting suspicions , scarcely veiled threats nnd rumors nnd Intrigues to mnko the work of peacemaking Impossible. The Irroconclllablcs of all sections have car ried the day. Dillon and myself cannot longer stand between them and their de plorable work.Vo \ can do nothing more till wo have recovered freedom of action by getting through with the sentence standing ngalnstus. " Mr. O'Brien expresses thohopo that the Inevitable conflict forced upon tbo country may bo conducted without personal bitterness , so when the unhappy passions of the hour have exhausted themselves all may again co-oporute In the nation's cause. Dillon in n short statement admits that ho has been largely Influenced to mediate by the vindictive notion of Parnell's ' most promi nent opponents. The personal clement in the struggle had in many minds hopelessly obscured great public Issues and driven thousands in Jxelaiut nnd America into Pnrnell's ' camp AVho otherwise would have opposed hn continued leader ship. "Kvents have fully berne out O'Brien's vlevs as to the method of compromise , but from the beginning of the negotiations power ful Influences worn working on both sides against pence , and wo arc now compelled to sorrowfully announce failure. " A. Heavy llcsponslbillty. " LONDON ; Fob. 11. [ Special Cablegram to Tun BKK. ] The Pall MallOazettoln Its Issue of today says n heavy responsibility rests upon Messrs. O'Brien nnd Dillon , who ac cording to the Gazette , have shown a strange vacillation iu treating Mr. Parnoll as co-equal with the Irish representa tives and in negotiating in the old lines of committee room as if no deposition or Kilkenny election had occurred. The Gazette adds that when Mr. Parnell's ' defeat promised to become final It was In credible weakness to consent to a one-sided truce , leaving Mr. Parncll free to prosecute his ends whllo Mr. O'Bricn suppressed the only organ of Dublin opinion left to the Irish people. Mr. Pnrnell has haughtily ruptured the negotiations his opponents humbly initi ated. The Unzotto does not doubt that Messrs. O'Brien ' and Dillon will repair the the mischief done nnd revert to the nntl-Par- nolllto position which they assumed in their December manifestos. "What Ijomlon Papers Say. LONDON , Fob. 11. Tlio Standard says It Is understood that Parnell took exception to the inadequate assurances given in regard to the right of imperial veto nud Irish representa tion at Westminster. The Irish campaign will bo based upon the principle of resistance to clerical dictation. The News assumes also that the negotia tions failed because the llbor.il leaders de clined to give any assurance regarding the home rule bill. The Times says O'Brien's ' "lachrymose gehlus walls through the turgid and Inflated sentences of tlio manifesto like a literary banshee. " The Telegraph thinks It h a serious quos Uon whether Lord Zetland might not for the safety of the Irish pcoplo quash the convic tion of Dillon and O'Brien to cnahlo them to take such active part In the coming war as they and their constituents may eonsldor host for mutual urotoctlon , MoCnrthyitcB on Pnrnell. LONDON , Feb. 11. McCarthylto members who were seen In the lobby of the commons today say that Parnell's refusal to cotno to amlc.iblo terms will stiffen tholr attitude and increase their resolves to resist ; his claims. It Is not certain that all points will bo settled at tomorrow's meeting. I ariicll Will Not Hot-ode. LONDON , Fob. 11.

TUB JJEn.j The Chronicle , referring to the card scandal says : The prluco of Wales ad dressed Sir Gordon Gumming in very strong language , which was keenly resented nnd which according to Cummlng , was the cause of his signing in a moment of panlo and agi tation a document In which ho forswore the card table. After this midnight scene , the prince of Wales locked the doors and pledged the llvo partloi present to secrecy. When it leaked out , nil were vastly surprised and do- dared tnat they had rigidly kept faith with the princo. As for the prluco of Wales , though ho was laudably keen on the | > olnt of honor , ho Is not without responsibility for the evil fashion of high play in English society , Ho cannot complain that ho has received no reminder of Its dangers. Ono or two high dignitaries of the church addressed him privately , urging the use of his influence to stop the ovll , but the prince's parties nro still conducted on the old linos.

An animated meeting was hold yesterday afternoon at the rooms of the builders' and traders' exchange In response to a call Issued to all Interested in the proposed changoln the mechanic's lien law. Tbero was a largo attendance of members of the exchange , and a number of real estate men and others , not members , wcro also present. The committee appointed at a previous meeting to consider and report unou any changes in the present law , presented the bill prepared by the real estate exchange , which changes the law In such n way as to give laborers - borers only a lien upon property , doing away with that feature of the , present law which protects material men and elves thorn a lion upon the property second only to a prior mortgage. The bill was submitted by the committee without recommendation. The report of the committee was nccuptod ana the mutter brought before the exchange for discussion. Chris Spocht was the first speaker. Ho was opposed to any change In the law. The greater part of the buildings in the state had been erected by Irresponsible parties , and the adoption of the lavas proposed would only servo to increase the number of these pooplo. Robert Llvosey spoke in favor of the pres ent law , and said that if any change was nado It should bo a clean sweep and not a one-sided arrangement which would bo only favorable to the rich contractor. George H. Boggs of tno real estate firm of Boggs & Hill was present and was invited by President Hussoy to address the mooting , Mr. Boggs said ho had had some disastrous experience with the present lion law , and had lost considerable laud through the construc tion placed upon the law by the supreme court. Under this decision nay person has u rletit to squat upon tno land of another and encumber It with a lion without the knowledge or consent of the owner. Ho ad vocated the abolishment of the present law and the adoption of the law presented by the coinuilttoo , which would give all au equal show. Mr , Boggs wont Into details In ex plaining his position and the oxperloncc ho had had in llio supreme court , during which rccltol ho was subjected to a running flro ot cross-questions by Urals Bradford , who sought to show that Mr , Hoggs was In the habit of selling lots on contracts with small cash payments with the UndcMttindlng that the purchaser was to Improve the land by erecting a houso. A member of the exchange rnlsod a point of order nnd Mr. Uofgs took lili scat. Mr. Gibson of the Una \\elshiuis &Gll > - Ron nrguod that tin malarial men should bo protected. If the present laws wore repealed material men would have no protection from the dcndbeats , and thorn would bo no Induce ment for them to comq to Omaha. Louis Uradford wos.tho next speaker , and ho opposed the stand taken by Mr. Boggs. Ho said the real estate men were In the habit of selling loti on contrast * , taking1 ? , ) or $10 an the llrst payment nnd compelling the pur chaser to erect a house on the lot In order to make the security better. Under the de cision of the supreme court referred to by Mr. Boggs , the seller who compels the purchaser to build becomes a ro- sponslblo party and n guarantor for the mnterlnl furnished. If the real estate men wanted protection they should sell lots legitimately and tuko mortgages , which should bo put on record. They would' then bo abend of nil the Hen holders , who would hnvo to take their chances. John Wakofleld endorsed what Mr. Brad ford had said , and was followed by Chris Spccht , who read the riot net to these real estate men who buy acre property nt $200 nnd sell It nt f10,000 to poor men , from whom they take a very small payment and require the purchaser to improve the property at once. If thcso men wanted protection they had It in tholr power to protect themselves , and should not seek the repeal of the Hen law , which gave the material men protection. Mr. Boggs took the floor again to protect himself ngidnst the attacks which had been made on him. Ho repeated his assertion that the decision of tbo supreme court made it possible for an irresponsible party to plnco a lien upon property without the owner's knowledge or consent , and challenged any ma terial man to contradict him. Then followed a prolonged dlscasslon in the matter , In which tlio sumo ground was gone over again and again without developing any now features , all the material men being op posed to any change In the law and Mr. Boggs being alone In his position in favor of Its repeal. During the course of this discussion Chris Spccnt , In Innguapo more forcible than po lite , denounced the contemplated change as a laud shark scheme designing to rob the poor tnau and sell property at n figure far In ex cess of its value. After these present hnd fullv discussed the subject , nil who wcro not members of the ex change were invited to retire nnd u vote was tnlccn upon the adoption of the report of the committee , which resulted in the report not being adopted. _ TUB ANi'i-Tim-r ; SOCIETV. Its Precautions Laughed to Scorn ly the IjIght-ViiiKored Gentry. The members of the Douglas County Anti- Thief society nro in sackcloth and ashes. Their heads are bowed In grief. Some weeks ago this society , which has its headquarters m McArdlo precinct , published to the world that a toward of $50 would bo paid for the arrest of any person caught stealing from any member of the society. Since that time the tiuovcs have been making the lives of the ofllcors very burdensome. First the treasurer , Car son Uhorcr. was visited by the light-lingered gentry , and when thoy'left , all of his turkeys and chickens , some ono hundred iu number , went too. A few nights later they visited the residence of Glaus Slovora , the late secre tary , aud whllo ho slept drove awav n line fat cow , no trace of which was ever obtained. The present secretary , J. U. McArdlo , was then visited , and two weeks ago ho was aroused from his slum burs , and gun in hand ho rushed to his hen house to ilnd that some person had walked iu\av with 150 gcoso , turltoys und chickens. But the raid that lays all others In the shudo was mndo Tues day nipht. The captain of the association Is .Tames Walsh. Tuesday ho spent the day In Omaha and remained over night. When ho went homo Wednesday morning it was to flr.d that during the preceding night some person had visited bis premises , broken open the granary and stolen nearly ono hundred bushels of oats , boslaea completely demoral izing bis stock of poultry by taking away all of the fowls. The members of the society hold a meeting ycstoraay , renewed their vows and swore vengeance on thieves. Hereafter members of _ the association will nightly patrol the pre cinct , and if a man who cn'nnot give an ac count of himself is found , his chances of llfo will bo exceedingly slim. fi I'ttl'VliATIOX.
