He knew him tn speak to , but did not know where he lived. McCrystol's employ ment was selling lottery tickets so far as wit ness know , and was also connected with a clothing store. MeCrystol called on witness at No. - " Union street , where witness had a desk. .MeCrystol como between 10 and 11 o'clock on Monday. McCrystol said he was goinc up to the court and McCabe said so was he. They walked to the court together , and McCrystal said McCabe could make some money on the ca.sc. McCabe said he did not want to because ho did not think ho would be taken. .Witness was not called as a talcs juror on Monday. In the evening McCrystol met McCabe and walked with him from the ofllce to McCabo's home. McCrvstal told McCabe that ho could make SoOO by poing on the jury and working for a mistrial or an ac quittal of the defendants. McCrystol said if ho ( McCrystol ) had the subpoena as a tales juror it would be worth $1,000 to him. McCabe Cabo refused the offer and said ho was not that kind of a man. McCrystol said ho would go out and get the money right away. MeCrystol did not say where ho would get the money. Soon after McCrystol's indict ment and while In the parish prison ho sent for District Attorney Luzcnburg and made a confession. This confession the district at torney desired to go in as evidence today , but Judge Baker promptly ruled against its ad mission. After further testimony the case was given to the jury at 4 o'clock and the jury retired. In a few minutes it returned into court with a verdict of guilty us charged. The ruling of Judge Baker , in refusing to admit the confession of McCrystol , saves O'Malley in this cose , the only case connect ing him directly with the bribery cases. The court will now bo forced to try him upon ono of the other charges , If at all , and they are all cases of several years ago. McCrystol was tried for murder several years ao and acquitted , O'Malley helping him out of the trouble. Smco then he bos been O'Malley's faithful lieutenant. Mc Crystol will tomorrow bo tried upon another charge of bribery in connection with John Coouoy , and O'Malley's men. Ono of the facts much commented upon in connection with the bribery cases is tnat Lionel Adams , formerly O'Malley's partner , has not ap peared in any of the cases , even neglecting to come ns u witness In response to forthwith subpoenas. Charles Granger , another of the Hennessy jury bribers , was tried today. Granger was a member of greater importance than Glnudi , being connected with prominent families and having an average reputation. For eight mon'hs Granger has been in the employ of the fruit Importers , among the Macbecas and Oteris. Tbo state tried to connect him with O'Malley's office during the Hennossy trial and to provo statements ho made to O'Malley in the presence of Detective- Collins , who served the state In the camp of the defend ants. Granger's counsel objected strongly , and the court confined the testimony to the time of the offense. Granger was tried for attempting to bribe ono Sbarre. The latter said ono morning after be received bis summons as u juror Granger coma to his house and woke him up. When ho came down Granger asked him if he wanted to make fVX ) . Ho said "Yes , " and Granger told him ho would give him that much to go on the Hennessy jurv and work the jury Sbarro tben declined the offer. Granger's defense was a general denial. Ho oweu Sbarro a debt at ft > and Sbarro come or sent to his house thirteen or fourteen times to collect It. On February I" Sbarre left n message with Granger's family that Gnngor should como to see htm. Granger went the next morning and told Sbarro bo would pay him tbo following week. Casually the Hen nessy case was mentioned and Mr. Granger remarked that amouc alt tbo parties arrested there were some innocent people. That was all that was said and u bribe of JjOd was never mentioned. After being out several hours tbo jury could uot ugreo and a mis trial was entered | The jury stood 0 for acquittal and 3 for conviction.

Special to Tin : HKE.J I understand steps are ooln ? takan for the immediate cx- culslon of Sir William Gordon-Cumnitnt ; from the Carlen and other club ) to which ha belongs. There will not bo a single club In London to which ho will bo able to enter , nnd all doors will be closed.

Finally , ho will shortly bo cashiered from the army and lose tils half pay as well ns his military rank. Whether really the American lady wnom ho has married realizes the position In which sbo Is placed Is doubt ful , but there H no doubt as to the terrible nature of the position Itself. I believe the baccarat counters In the pos session of the prince of Wales were given to him shortly before the Tranbycroft affair by one of his friends , a member of the house of commons. Ho thought no more of having them than if they had been whist counter ? , but the public Hikes a very different view of the matter , as is proved by the censures al ready passed upon his conduct by tbo Wesleyan - leyan nnd other religious bodies. Arthur Wilson and their lot also suffer severely. Nothing could have been worse than their conduct. If Mrs. Arthur Wilson likes to encourage her sons to gamble against their father's wishes that Is her affair , but it is universally felt that after cheating bad once been detected baconr.it should have been stopped forthwith and the prince noti fied that reasons had occurred for breaking up the game. Mrs. Arthur Wilson nnd Lycett Greene came out of the trial almost as badly damaged as Gordon-Cumiuing himself. The solicitor general's speech is allowed to be one of the finest delivered for yearn in a court of law , but ho admits that the signed document followed by Gordon-Cuuimlug's letter to General Owen Williams asking for the benefit of a doubt were too much for him. He could have got his man off easily if it bad not been forthoso documents. The scandal may for a time clear the social air and chock the prevailing gambling spirit , but the fast .set which leads certain sections of society has obtained too tight a hold to be dislodged.
