LONDON' , Juno 8. The baccarat game was
plnycJ lu rouit today. The court wiw
crowded long before the opening time and In
terest In the case did not seem to have dimin
ished In the slightest degree. Lord Colo-
ridge , the lord chief justice of England , when
ho took his seat on the bench , was flunked on
clthersldo by about twenty-live ladies. With
the exception of the reserved space loft for
thu prlnco of Wales , and which the latter
promptly occupied , the body of the court was
filled with barristers , the plaintiff , the do-
* -4vidants , representatives of the press , the
jury and a few specially favored spectators ,
whllo the galleries were in the main part
filled with fashionably dressed ladles.
Tno plaintiff , Sir William Gordon-Cum
mlng , was as dlcnlflcd ns over , and , accord
ing to all outward signs , utterly mini died and
supremely culm nnd collected. The plaintiff
occupied a position almost under the jury
box , while In the same row , only further
away from the jury , sat tbo defendants.
During the delivery of the latter part of Sir
Charles Russell's speech for the defense , the
portion uttered today , the plaintiff calmly
listened to It with studied dignity , never for
a second turning his head towards Sir
Charles Hussell , who , hut a few foot away
from Sir William , was denouncing the latter
In the most severe manner. Occasionally
the baronet looked straight nt , the prince of
Wulos , who was immediately In front of the
plaintiff , but tbo heir apparent never motSir
William's ' gaze. The prlnco of Wales ,
< throughout the present legal proceodlnga , has
' "demonstrated the fact that ho. is "sticking"
to the Wilbon.s , mid that ho will continue to
do so. No bettor evidence of this Is needed
than the fact that young Arthur Stanley
Wilson has boon elected a member of the
Murlborough club , the prince's pot club , upon
tha nomination of the prince himself.
Sir Charles Hussell then took up
his address for the dofcnso which wns
interrupted lust Saturdaj1 by the ad
journment of court. Sir Charles com
menced by calling attention to Sir Will-
Tim Gordon-Cumming's method of playing
b.iccnrut , saying : "If Arthur Stanley
Mlson swore to took place , it excluded all
I thut clnss of suggestions , of which there Is
no trace in the correspondence between Sir
William , General Williams nnd Lord
Coventry to the effect that the
accusation arose from a misun
derstanding of the plaintiff's
system of play. " bir Charles said that in
his opinion the only course open to Sir Ed
ward Clarke , the leading counsel for the
plaintiff , was to announce the whole accusa
tion as an Invention. This , ho said , would
bo fatal. "Wns it possible for un.v innocent
in ( in to adopt the course taken by the plain
tiff ? " asked the attorney. "Ho savs bo did
not ask to bo confronted with the witnesses
because ho was advised not to do so. But
the impulse of nn honorable man would have
boon to that his accusers should bo
brought face to face with him. " Instead of
this the jury had had placed before them the
feeble suggestion that the witnesses mistook
f or acts of cheating coups trals. If this was
so the plaintiff's conduct could have boon ox-
plninoil , hut there was not a syllahlo of a
suggestion of that kind uttered ut
Trantiycroft. The plaintiff signed that paper
and know that tha so doing wns tbo sumo as
nn admission of guilt.
Sir Charles then cleverly endeavored to
discount tbo arraignment of the Wilson
nlly and other members of the Tranbycroft
ikrnrut party which ho anticipated would
bo oV.o of the few errors of the address for
the plaintiff which Sir Edward Clurko would
make. Ho concluded with the remark that
he confidently left the defendants' ' case in
tl'o bunds of the Jury , being fully aware that
tie | latter would do their duty and by their
verdict uphold the evidence which had Ocon
given In the defendants' bohulf.
When Sir Charles Russell sut down there
was a murmur of surprise , the counsel for
the defendants having closed his address
rather unexpectedly. Solicitor General Sir
" Edward Clurko.loading counsel for the plain-
' "tilt , look the lloor , and In a few sentences
tersely invited the attention of the jury. Ho
then commenced by saying it had been "com
mon talk" that tlio prince of Wales' continual
presence In the court during the trial of this
suit wns for the purpose of restraining
tongues of tbo lawyers engaged In the case
from commenting upon the prince of Wales
connection with it.
This remark caused a sensation , but It was
nothing to what , followed.
Continuing , Sir Ed ward intimated that tha
presence of tlio pilnco In court would not
prevent him from making any comment , nec
essary , saying that the counsel hud a painful
duty to perform und that ho Intended to per
form , it honestly nnd fairly. His opponents ,
ho continued , had always been careful to-
allude to him. the counsel for the plaintiff , as
"solicitor general , and , " ho added , "while 1
am proud of thut title , I must lemind the
Jury that 1 nppoar in this case simply ns nn
English barrister , nnd 1 am obliged to disre
gard my friendships nnd even my own inter
ests , und comment on the conduct and evi
dence of ono of the highest in the land. "
Sir Edwavd Clurko , us ho uttered those
last words , turned smiaroly around until ho
faced the prince of Wales , upon whom every
eye In the court then turned and who ner
vously crossed his logs , whllo the audience
was utterly aghast nt what wns considered
to bo the audacity of the solicitor general. In
several directions the whispered comment ,
* "Why , ho Is going to attack the pilnco of
TvTNos , " wns distinctly heard , mid caused all
attention to bo riveted upon the plaintiff's
counsel. Continuing , the solicitor general
remarked :
"Sir Charles Hussell for the defendants'
behalf has snld that oven if the Jury found for
the plaintiff and disregarded the doi-umenl
the latter hud .signed at Tranbyeroft , the
military authorities would take the mutter
up and thut Sir William Gordon Cummlng's
name would bo striukon from the army list.
1 wish to say In unmistakable terms" ex
claimed Sir Edward Clarke , raising his voice
until It echoed tellingly through the court ,
"that It wou'd ' bo Impossible for the authori
ties to do nny such thing and yet leave on
thut list the names of thn field marshal , the
prince of Wales , and General Owen Wil
liams. "
This bold statement seemed to completely
take awny the hrcatn of the audience and
caused by fur the groutoit sensation of the
tiinl. A hushed murmur of astonishment ,
not unmixed with dismay , swept
over tbo couit room. OHO
must thoroughly understand the almost re
ligious worship of royalty which prevails
throughout Great Britain to clearly grasp
the full meaning and crushing significance of
thn solicitor gnnornl's ' words , aimed directly
fit the heir apparent.
Amidst this storm the prlnco of Wales sat
on the bench to the left of the lord chiaf jus
tice , Immovable- a inusclo of his fuco ap
parently twitching , loaning his head upon his
arm and endeavoring to appear totally uncon
After the sensation hud somewhat subsid
ed , Kir Edward devoted his attoutiou to the
discrepancies which ho assorted existed be
tween the precis drawn up at Trantiycroft
\sJilch accused Sir William Gordon Cum-
filing of withdrawing as well as adding coun
ters to those ho had previously staked at
baccarat and the statement which
the Wilson family disclaimed , that
Ihoro was a preconcerted plan to watch
Cuiamlng on the second night of the baccarat
Claying. Sir Kdward followed this with an
arraignment of the Wilsomi , whhh was most
severe nnd cutting.
"Yes , " exclaimed the solicitor general , re
ferring to the Wilsons , "thov undoubtedly
have money , but oven If Sir William Cum-
tiling would condescend to take it Irom such
n source , I shall not usk the Jury to fix the
damnsrcs beyond n nominal FUtti. "
When the court adjourned for luncheon the
prince of Wales hurriedly loft his scat on the
bench and contrary to his , usual habits of
politeness completely disregarded the hUtnblo
courtesies of the several dames seated in his
immodInto vicinity.
After luncheon Sir Clnrks resumed his ad
dress to the Jury , saying that there wns noth
ing In the accusations against the plaintiff
thut could not bo explained by the system of
play which Sir William Gordon-Cummlng
adopted , though Ilia Jury were * asked to bo-
llovo that the plaintiff hud descended to a
depth of tricks the lowest shurpor would not
do. The solicitor general then commented
surc.istlcally upou the ornamental position
occupied by the head of the Wilson family ,
who , counsel said , was notconsultcd through
out tlfo proceedings and who apparently had
to give Ins son-in-law Mr.
way to - - , Liycott
Green , who wns deputed to defend the family
honor. "A man of the mature ngo
of thirty-one , " said the solicitor general ,
cuttingly , referring to Mr. Green , "who rode
to the hounds four days In the week. When
Mr. Gruen heard tbo prlnco of Wales say ,
glvo him another tenner , I wish people
would put tholr stakes lu a conspicuous
place , ' he ( Mr. Green ) catno to the conclu
sion that Sir William Gordon-Cumming had
been cheating and rose from the table , but ,
changing his mind , Mr. Green wrote to his
mother-in-law in magnificent tones of elo-
vatcd morality nnd then returned to play
again , afterwards directing the attention of
the prlnco of Wales , who was again present ,
to the affair and who , without hearing Sir
William Gordon-Cumming's version of the
occurrence , condemned his intimuto friend.
What was Sir William Gordon-Cunimlng's
reason for signing the document about which
so much has been suid C' asked the solicitor
general , looking straight into the prince of
Wales' eyes. "It was , " ho said , after nn
effective pause , "to save the prince of Wales.
Among the mass of the people , " Sir Edward
continued , uttering each \\oril with startling
distinctness , "it is known that n club or
inn could bo prosecuted for playing baccarat ,
and in a great part of the com
munity there wns a feeling that this
unhappy accident ought never td have been
allowed to become known because the cir
cumstances were at variance with the feeling
and with the conscience of the people.
"Then there was the strange und suttle in-
lluonco of royalty , " still''more solemnly nnd
dramatically said the solicitor general , "and
Sir William Gordon-Cummtng's ' action in
signing that document was due to the inllu-
once which has adorned history nnd which
bus made many a knight do an unknlghtlv
and dishonoring deed to save their king , be
cause they gave their honor us freely ns they
would have given their llvos for the Interests
of the dynasty or to conceal the foibles of a
prince. "
A slight ripple ofj applause , which was
promptly suppressed , broke out in court as
the eloquent Jurist uttered the lust words in
n most touching and impressive manner.
"Tho document , " continued Sir Edward
Clurko with increasing toree and amid the
most deadly silence throughout the court
room , "was signed Dy Sir William Gordon-
Cummlng in order to save the prince of
Wales from scandal. The motto of Sir Wil
liam Gordon-Cuinming's race is , 'Without
fear. ' He came into the witness box without
fear , confident of a verdict which would
wipe thl1 , stain from his record of service
. , with his gallant regiment of brave soldiers. "
Sir Edward Clarke used plain language
throughout when ho referred to the prince of
' .Vales , and whan ho made the assertion that
tbo afternoon precis was prepared by Lord
Coventry uud signed by Sir William Gordon-
Cummlng solely to shield the prince of
Wales from scand'il , it caused ono of the
greatest sensations of this sensational trial ,
find ttinaA ll'Tm Virtitnl tVin v/trti ilra rtinrln { n
court were so surprised with them that they
were generally discussed afterward and were
commented on In club and other circles far
into the night and early morninir.
The solicitor genera ! quoted us the basis of
these startling allegations an extract from
the earl of Coventry's dairy , In which the
following words occur : "We were Induced
to recommend this course because wo de
sired to avoid scundal and in order to keep
the name of the prince of Wales out of It. "
"Sir William Gordon-Cumming , ns well as
tbo curl of Coventry , " said Sir Edward , "is
loyal to the prince of Wales , who has been
most kind to him , and Sir William Gordon-
Cummlng signed that document because ho
was willing to sacrilico himself , as his old
friends were willing to sacrifice him , in order
to save the reputation df , the recollection
of whoso friendship will always DO bright in
his memory. "
The solicitor geuoral then said slowly to
the Jury : "It is too late to undo much of the
mischlor which has been done , " nnd then ,
facing the priuco nnd looking the latter di
rect In the fuco for about the space of a
minute , ho continued in a voice apparently
shaken with emotion , "and It may be too late
to SIIVB the reputation of some people men
tioned in this case , but" again turning to
the jury "it is not too late for you to pre
vent the completion of the sacrifice of this
gallant officer. "
Sir Edward Clarke's speech was regarded
as a most olomiont und telling effort , and
when he closed his remarks there was a
burst of spontaneous applause , cheering and
clapping throughput the court which caused
tlio lord chief Justice to shout , "Silence , this
is not a theater. "
The action of the lord chief Justice had the
desired effect , nnd the applause stopped , hut
as Sir William Gordon-Cummlng rose from
his seat a nilnuto later and while the prince
of Wales and Lord Coleridge were still on
the bench there wns a renewal of the cheers
and hand clapping , of which the plaintiff ap
peared to take no notico.
The jury , it wns plainly Jovldont , nppeared
to bo greatly impressed with the speech of
the solicitor general , and ns he ended a re
mark was hoird throughout the court. It
was , "Gumming will got n verdict , or at least
the jury will disagree. "
The court wns then adjourned till tomor
row , when the lord chief justice will sum up
and thu case will bo given to the Jury.

Souio fanncra In Nebraska , Illinois uml
Indiana and n low ether states' ' huvo been
writing to the ituornul revenue office that
they fear there will bo so much rod tape in
securing maple mid boot sugar bounties that
they will have to abandon hope for it.ho
law gives u botmtyof about" cents a pound ,
so that all the bounty realized on 1,000 ,
pounds , which is a Rood yield , will bo $ JO. To
secure this a farmer must take out u liccnso
and submit his product to n government inspector
specter to be tested , weighed , etc. Further
more , as the Inspector may not get around
on tlmo , ttio fanners say they may
miss the opening of the market In
the first part of the maple sugar
season when the product demand- * about 0
cents more than It does later in the season.
Commissioner Mnsun said today that he ex
pected to recommend to the secretary of the
treasury the nppointmontof the ton or twelve
sugar Inspectors within a week or then days.
Ho would not Indicate who were to get , thcso
positions , which pay 5 < 5 a day and traveling
expenses , but said that Ohio would got two
by vlrtuo of the fact Unit it was a maple
sugar producing state anil was the homo of
the author of the present tariff law ana Sen
ator Sherman , ono of the leading tarilt
authorities In the upper branch of congress ;
that the president's state would have to Do
given ono because it produced a
great deal of sugar , anu innt
Kansas. Nebraska and California , each
a sugar producing state , would got throe
more. Louisiana , ho said , had demanded the
appointment of all the others , basing Us
claim for the places upon the fact that It
produced more sugar than all the other states
combined. The commissioner said that
sugar producers will never have any trouble
about an early and prompt inspection of their
productions , as deputy collectors of internal
revenue can bo called to assist the regular
inspectors In their work , aiid that the pro
ducers can combine or concentrate at given
points In such a way si * to or.ablo an inspector
specter to pass upon a great many samples iu
ono day. The treasury department is
arranging every facility to glvo sugar pro

Mystery begins to surround the rumored
approaching marriage of the commander-in-

gram announcing the marriage of General
Scholleld , as wo have authority to atato that
the reports are absolutely false. " This pos
itive assertion by a seml-oflicinl paper which
says it speaks from "authority" is causin ?
much comment in army circles. Many
prominent ottlcers Insist that the wedding
will ndvcr take _ place , and , the fact that the
general's relatives hero arc In the dark on
the subject makes the affair speculative , to
say the least.

Several Offers for nti Intension He-
oelvccl by tlio Treasury.
WASHINGTON , Juno S. Several offers for
an oxtontion of 4 } > j per cent bonds were re
ceived at the treasury department this morn
ing. They were all from western banks.
Secretary Foster called on the president
this morning and Informed him of tlio result
of his recent conference with bankers in Now1
York and of tholr proffered willingness to
take up the entire \yt per cent loans If ex
tended at 2 per cent.
No conclusion was reached at this confer
ence as too best course to bo followed.
The question will bo again considered at the
cabinet meeting tomorrow.
There is u great conflict of opinion us to the
future action of the treasury department with
respect to this loan , but It Is generally under
stood that Secretary Foster favois its exten
sion at 'J per cent. Ho nil ml tied as much this
afternoon. He said that Mich a course- would
raise the credit of the government ; and at the
same tlmo cui.blo the national banks to in
crease tholr circulation , allowing greatl }
needed relief nftor the great exports of gold.
Ho said also , however , that tncro were so
many arguments In favor of an extension at
u low rate of interest that ho really did not
know but what It might llnnlly bo concluded
to fix the rate at 1 per cent ,
A statement prepared at the treasury de
partment shown that the 4 par cent bonds
hold by national bunks are geographically
distributed as follows ; Now England states ,
era banks , which are said to favor tlio 1 per
cent rates , hold more than one-half of the eii-
tlro amount hold by national banks and more
than tbo banks of the Now England and mid
dle states combined , Tlio strongest point in
favor of the a per cent ruto Is the agreement
of the eastern bankers to purchase the ontiru
outstanding loan of fYIOOU,000 , at that rate ,
wlillo the western bankers , known to favor
the 1 per cent r < tto , have so far spoken only
with icspeijt to tbo bonds now hold by them ,

pointed out forcibly the dissension In regard

that ono hud but to notice bow tlio teachers

At llvo minutes before 0 o'clock last night
woritmen engaged In Syndicate park hoard
the report of n gun.
On tholr way front work Ole Carlson , ono
of the laborers , discovered the body of a
man lying on the bank oloso to the roadway.
On nttprouiihlng the body ho dlsoovorod a
olstol hole in the left breast with llfo
scarcely extinct , and on the ground bosldo
the body lay n largo stnglo barrelled 44-cnli-
bro pistol.
Mr. Carlson ntonco notified ether men in
tin * punt , nnd soon the news spread over
the city and a large number of persona gath
ered at the place where the body lay.
Coroner Harrigun was summoned at once ,
and on examination found letters identifying
the deceased as William II. Doyle , aged
about twenty-live years , who resided with
his mother at 1710 Davenport street , and who
has been cashier of the Western Union tele
graph company In Omaha.
Mr. Doyle went lu the park along the main
avcuua leading from Twenty-fourth street ,
and nftor passing tlio turn-stile entrance
loading to the second lake , crossed the wlro
fence and laid down on the sloping bank , fac
ing the south , and fired the fatal shot , the
ball entering near the loft nipple and evi
dently passing through the heart , causing
death almost Instantly.
As soon ns possible the coroner had the
body convoyed to Heafey & Heafoy's under
taking establishment. Letters were found
upon the body , but the coroner declined to
make all of them public. Ono letter ad
dressed to his mother was a very tender ono ,
and In it ho enclosed a cheek for $300 , drawn
in the mother's favor.
Another letter to bis brother , August J.
Doyle , stated that he had been In poor health
lately and dlspatreu of evorgotttng bolter. The
letter closed with an affectionate farewell to
his biothcr , sisters uud mother.
W. W. Utnstod , manager of the Western
Union telegraph company , was at his homo
4022 Farnnin street when ho heard the news
of his cashier's suicide. Ho started at once
for Heafoy & Heafoy's , whore bo saw the
Manager Umsted was soon later by a BUG
reporter nnd stated that ho was greatly
shocked ns well us surprised.
Contluulne. Manager Umstod said : "Mr.
Doyle bus Ueou ailing for a long Ho
had the grip early in the spring , mid had
never fully recovered. Iu April lust Doyle
took u trip to Salt Lake and was gene a
couple of weeks , expecting to bcnolit his
health. No gooil resulted from the trip ,
as wo could see ; and Mr ! Doyle
returned to his desk still in poor health. The
last thrco weeks in May ho was at home the
greater part of the tlmo , trying to rest UD and
hoping hoping that the warm weather would
rovivo'hlm. Ho returned to work on the 1st
of Juno anil was at his desk part of Sunday.
Today ho did not como down and a messen
ger was sent to his house for the keys to his
desk , as was customary when ho was not
nblo to be nt work. Nothing was thought of
bis absence , us ho frequently stayed away
when not icellng well.
"Mr. Doyle entered the sorvlco of the com
pany about six years ago. For the first two
yours ho was delivery clerk and later was ap
pointed to the cashier's desk. Ho bus held
this latter position for the last three yours.
"Wo always reposed the greatest confi
dence in him , and ho was well liked by all
the employes of the ofllco and these ho cnmo
in contact with. His accounts do not con
cern mo a bit. I am positive , that his books
ara all right and in good shape. "
A call was made at the dead man's Into res
idence , 1710 Davenport street. The reporter
found the mother and three sisters in tears.
They were completely hoartbroitou and could
scarcely spsnk. The aged mother was es
pecially shocked nt the sad news , for William
hud been her favorite.
Air , Doyle hud a stroke of paralysis some
years ago and consequently walked with a
cano and n blight halt iu his step. Ho was
nn exceedingly sensitive man and dreaded to
huvo any ono notice his Infirmity. He was
Kind and his homo llfo most happy. Ho guva
a great deal of his earnings to charily , and
never saw a person in need without making
an effort to help him.
The sisters thought that tholr brother must
have been laboring under a temporary lit of
insanity at the time , caused by bis co'utlimed
failing health.
