The supreme court this morning decided that the city council did not have the right to select u suc cessor to City Treasurer Bardslcy. The ap pointment of Wright by Governor Pattlson is therefore sustained. In n lengthy opinion the chief justice says : It Is sulllclent to say that for the purpose of this cnso wo must regard the oBlco desig nated as city treasurer as n county and not n city ofllce. The treasurer , by whatever name ho bi called , is n county oflleor , comprising his functions Just ns the shurllT , recorder of deeds and other count } * olllccrs exercise their functions. The court holds that every ques tion now presented was raised and decided in the case of Tngirart vs Commonwealth , the fact that , the ofllco of comptroller was con tended for In that case making no difference , as the same law applies to each. A dissenting opinion was filed by Justices Williams and Mitchell , In which the princi pal contention was that the olllco of county treasurer was abolished by the act of consol idation and the oftlco of city treasurer there by created , and that therefore the council has the power to fill the vncnnoy. Another arrest has been made In connec tion with thu treasury scandal. This after noon H. II.

The World prints this dispatch from Philadelphia : The details of a conference that occurred on the Satur day night before President Marsh's depart ure would cast moro light upon the mystery that envelopes the affairs of the Keystone bank than anything yet brought out. A large sum of money was offered to Marsh and Lawrence to leave the country. The sum mentioned to your correspondent by his In formant was $20,000 each aud an assurance of ono week's start on the way to liberty. President Marsh sailed for Burb.idocs on the following Wednesday under an assumed name. All the stories slncn told by Inter ested parties about having met Marsh on the streets or elsewhere are parts of thu plot to shield tbo bank eprcsidcnt. Ho did not nt first accapt the otiers that were inado to him because Marsh did not think the hum large enough. Mr. Lawrence , the assistant , de clined. Ho said that whatever ho had done had been atthu direct command of Mr. Lucas and Mr. Marsh , and that ho had never profited to the extent of ono penny by ttio falsification of the books of the bank. Ho was already under lurgo ball , which had boon furnished by his friends , and ho did not con template leaving his bondsmen In the lurch. Ho had decided to face the music nnd give tbo committee all the Information In Ills power. John Bardsley was present nt that very Interview and implored Marsh nnd Law rence to go away until ho could "arrange" matters. Bardsloy never appears to have contemplated flight , but fully expected to have the bank reorganised and to como out of the entanglement safely. Council * Committee Inquiry.

The attention of Mr. N'ottloton , ttio assistant secretary of the treasury , was this evening called to the testi mony today of General L. E.

After Mie bank had been closed some days nnd when the comptroller ot the currency , who hud little acquaintance in Philadelphia , was considering several mimes for the receivership , I suggested that of Mr. Evuiis and recommended that the comptroller make Inquiry In Philadelphia as to his fitness , which he proceeded to do.

I had not n suspicion of any financial weakness or complications on the part of Mr. Evlins or the Spring Garden National bank until thu announcement of the failure of the bank. Mr. Evans had no knowledge that his name was to bo n.on- tioned for the Keystone receivership until some time uftor It was douo.

When first asked if ho hud made such n statement to General - oral Wagner Colonel Drew said it was absolutely false aud that ho had never told General Wacncr such a thing. Colonel Drew afterwards withdrew this denial nnd qualified It by saying ho had no recollection of having said anything on the subject , but still it was possible that General Wagner's memory was better than his and ho would therefore neither deny nor nfllm it. Colonel Drew was asked , "Well , is It so that General Nuttletou was n borrowerof the bank ! " "I can't ' answer A question like that , as I am not allowed to do so , " replied Colonel Drew. "Would it appear on the books of the bank If General Ncttloton had boon a borrower ! " "Yes , certainly , " said Colonel Drew.

A number of in quiries have been received nt the state de partment from philanthropic organizations and individuals ns to tbo failure of the United States government to signify its adhoicnco to the Congo treaty , the final ratification of which must bo exchanged before the end of the month. This treaty Is an agreement to suppress the slave trade nnrt the sale of breech-loading llro arms nnd intoxicants in the Congo district of Equatorial Africa , and nearly nil of the great powers of the world have joined in accepting its obligations. The state department has replied to these inquiries that the subject Is still under con sideration by the United States senate in ex ecutive session and the department does not feel nt liberty to discuss the nuttor gener ally , nut it is proper to say that as a result of rcccut correspondence it is not Improbiiule that the treaty will go into effect at the ap pointed tlmo in respect of all the signatories except the United States and that it will bo loft open to this government to give its ud- lieaion hereafter. L'lio department has been working to this end , and the senate , having failed to take definite action , that was all that could bo done pending further action by the senate. This treaty was negotiated at Brussels and a representative of the Utdted States govern ment assisted in its preparation. It was laid before the scnatn toward the clcwo of thu last congress lor approval and attention called to the necessity tor speedy action. After a long debate In executive session the treaty was rejected , but us a motion to reconsider was entered the matter is still ponding. Tbo vote upon the acceptance of the treaty was close nnd its opponents take their stand upon the several propositions. Ono was that the ap proval of the treaty by the United States would carry with it a recognition of certain French claims to n largo part of Liberia , which recent events show are now being actively and forcibly pushed , and ns that count 1-3- is regarded us ono of our wards wo could not permit such aggression. H was also urged that the United States could not consistently with its holding to the Monroe doctrine un- dcrtako to Join In n plan of dictation respect ing the affairs of another continent , and still another reason put forward in opposition to the treaty was the contention that It would bo unwise for the United States to glvo rec ognition to the present rather broad and In some cases doubtful claims of European na tions to the best nortlons of Africa which are tacitly recognised by the treaty. All of these urBiimonts wore used by thu opposition hucccstifullv to defeat the treaty , but as the motion to reconsider It Is still pending the department of slate regards it as u duty to still save a place lor the United Status among its adherents until the subject is finally acted upon by the notmto.

The storm rising round the prince of Wales Is at lust obtaining In tensity , endangering his chances to HUCCCS- slon to thu throne If not the existence of the English monarchy.

Whenever lt-4 voice becomes nudlblo Us earnest denunciations of the prince of Wales nro accompanied by regrets nt his nearness to thu throne. Hopresontntlvo gath erings of religious bodies Congrega tional , Methodist , Baptist , Unitarian , aud Presbyterian have already recorded their condemnation. Boards of guardians nro going out of their accustomed paths to discuss motions branding tbo gambling pro pensities of thu prince of Wales as a dlsgraco to the country. Several liberal societies have adopted protests against his contluuanca In the nrmy. The agitation has every char * actcr of permanence. It has not yet touched more than n fringe of the political parties , but ere long tlio1 * glowing fierceness of tl.o pcoplo must penetrate the core of politics , causing party action within ami without par liament. The radical members of the house of com mons nro opening the attack upon the prlnca of Wales , but they have been warned that Mr. Gladstone resents the movement nnd that the leaders of the opposition will ac tively show their repugnance to associating liberalism with an agitation tending to cast disgrace upon the crown. A group of radicals , meeting the night after Cummliig's dismissal from the army was gazetted , concurred in the opinion that the leaders have mistaken the feeling of the nation ; that even on party grounds It Is Im possible to noglcut the duty to tuko the sense of parliament on tbo position of tha prlnco of Wales nnd the others con cerned. The radicals will not bo con tent with anything less than action by the military authorities , Involving the same official reproof of the prince of Wales , General Williams aud Levitt. The prosecu tion of Cummlng nnd others for gambling will bo made a part of thu demand on tha government , but It will not bo earnestly pressed. Conferences bavo boon bold nt tbo war of llco , attended by Mr. Stanhopo , the duke of Cambridge , the duke of Connaught , General Hodvcrs Buller and Colonel Strucoy , und it is reported that they decided that the priuco of Wales , General William and Levitt had com mitted no otTcnso iigainst military law , out only a technical breach of regulations. Mr. Stanhope therefore , basing Monday's re sponse to the questions on thu decision of the conference , will probably declare that the will deal with thu commaudor-ln-chiof casa privately , without regard to regulations. In roferenco'to the curl of Coventry It is re ported in court circles that he has Intimated to Lord Salisbury his readiness to resign thd ofllco ofmaster of the Buckhounds but that the acceptance of his resignation is delayed ! till the government sees howLord Coventry's retirement is likely to alTc'ct the position ot the prince of Wales. Court circles are much exercised over the letters from the Gorman court reflecting the opinion of Emperor William. It Is believed that the emprror has written the queen a long nnd serious criticism on the prince's life , diluting especially upon the gambling of ofllccrs ns n grave offense to military honor nnd made worse by the signing of a paper permitting n colonel of the guards to bo convicted of cheating to retain his com mand In the army. The queen , U is said , forwarded the letter to the priuco of Wales. Sir William Gordon-Cumnung arrived at Granthum today nnd then started for Forros.
