Ni:w Yoiik. March 21. The suit of
Mrs. Lavlnin B, Thayer for a limited
divorce from her husband, Cushman F.
Thayer, a clerk in the Park National
Bank, came up before Justice Baitlett
in Binoklyn Saturday. Mrs. Thayer
alleged cruelty on tho'partof her hus
band, nnd described herself as being
sickly nnd unable to look after her
Mr. Thayer p.it in a long answer, de
nying that his wife was in anv way
feeble, but asserting that she was too
lazy to get out of bed. She compelled
him to wash the dishes, Mr. Thayer
said, and continually abused him. 'Ho
weighs 115 pounds and his wife tips tho
scales at 1(15, and ho say's she could
easily whip him if ho over tried to In
jure her. He gets s?r(i a month and his
wife takes all except ten cents a day,
which he has for car faro.
Mr. Thayer says that his wife is part
owner of a fine farm In New Jersey,
while ho hasn't a cent and is heavily
iu debt. Strange to say, ho dales all
his tinublo from tho death of his
riiothcr-in-Inw in ltiS.1!, Previous to
that event, he says, his wife spent all
her lime quarreling with her mother,
and was very pleasant to him'. Ho adds
as his belief iliat if Ills mother-in-law
were allvo now he would have an easy
time of it, for his wife would rather
fight with a woman than with a man.
Justice ISnrtlelt took the papers and re
served his decision.

Halifax, N. S., March 21. Advices
from Newfoundland show that the peo

Tho chief objection seems to bo
that it was negotiated without
tho knowledge or consent of
tho government of Newfoundland, and
that it is therefore an insult to tho dig
nity of that colony. The Herald, the

corner Four-and-a-half sticct and Penn

committee of Bakers' Assembly, No,

three linns Charles Schneider, 41!) "I
street northwest; Charle3 SchafTcr, 120
Four-and-a-half street southwest, and
Fied. Stohlmau, Thirty-second street
The hall presented an animated ap
pearance when a Critic reporter called
this forenoon, and the bakers were
eagerly discussing .the situation. Tho
question of appointing n commlttco to
call on the three, bosses nnhied above,
was discussed, but it is mora than pos
slblo that tho twenty-nine strikers will
ho held in readiness at their hall, whore
their former employers, should they do
site, enn call nnd negotiate with them.
A ripplo of excitement was caused
at headquarters when tho report
reached thero that Schneider had
gone to Baltimore or New York
to employ journeymen for his
bakery. Immediately upon tho re
ceipt of this information a volunteer
committee of the journeymen pinned on
their gold nnd blue badges and started
for the depots to intercept tho new
comers. "Don't send them home," Shouted an
oillccr of the assembly as the commit

hall, and let us have a talk with
Another ripple of excitement was
caused by the announcement that Frauk
Faulkner, late treasurer of Bakers As

"scabhed" last night at Stohlman's by
taking the place of one of tho strikers.
Faulkner was roundly denounced hy

think they would succeed. Ho also
said that tho bosses cannot find any
men m Washington to tako the place
of the strikers.
Foreman Wesbury of Havenner's
bakery said the situation was decidedly
favorable to the loeked-out bakers.
"The men will not sien the iron-clad
agreement," he said, ,faud public sym
pathy is on our side. We will win,
sine. Even the drivers arc on our sldo
and will help us out."
The executive committee of District
Assembly was called together at tho
Bakcis' Hall at noon to-day In confer
witli the latter in .reference to the
lock-out. The session was secret, but
it is learned .that important action was
taken. A committee of Hnvenner's
bakers called on tho members
of that firm just before noon
and through their spokesman, Joseph
Wesbury, asked that the obnoxious
rules bo' taken down from the walls of
tho bakery .where they had been posted.
The fhm readily agreed to the demand,
nnd the rules were removed. A similar
committee called on Charles E. Kohlcr,
Thirteenth street, between C and D
sticcts, and wcie likewise successful in
having the rules taken down.
Upon the return of these committees
to the hall their reports were greeted
with applause. Other committees arc
calling on Mr, Kraft, corner of Eight

and some of the larger bakeries, arid
they are all confident of success.
Tho commlttco on duly nt the Balti

icplied that they wore not and proceeded

Mith Mrs. Soybold. This Is false, as It
Is Miss Scybold, and not her mother,
who Is In lovo with Brady, but the

and started a scandal.
On Thursday night nboul n dozen
men, said to bo alt prominent citizens
of Westllcld, went to Seybold's houso
during the master's absence. They
wore handkerchiefs over their faces,
and told Mrs. Seybotd that Brady

Constantinople says that the Powers arc
again exchanging views on the con 11

tliely ngiccd on the line of action to
be adopted nor on lho wny in which

lo be unwilling lo tlo anything that

Germany has intimated lo the Porto
thai Crclo being a Tuikish province,
any difficulty on tho Island should be
settled between tlio Sultan and his
subjects. This cynical disre
gard of tho obligations Germany,
in common with the other powers, Is
under towards Crete, Is entirely on a par
with Lord Salisbury's action in the mat

In the absence of nny outside action
In Crete things are steadily tending to a
general rising of the people, whtou tho
weakness of tho Turkish garrison of
the island invites, nnd the stupidity nnd
bad faith of the Turkish administra
tion provokes. More than half tho
difficulties in Crete, as everywhere else
where trouble picvalls In tho Ottomau
empire, spring from Constantinople and
tlie universal mistrust that pervades luo
whole system of Turkish administra
tion. No man, however capa
ble, ever has a free hand
given him in Turkey lo do anything
but plunder, and that" he may do with
impunity so long ns lie sends'enough in
backsheesh to Constantinople from
time lo time to satisfy tho parasites who
are dragging the empire to ruin. If
anything is going to bo done by tho
powers nbout'Cretoithad better be done
quickly, for otherwise, much blood may
be shed and tho sufferings of the un
fortunate people prolonged to no pur

tho Tillies bill precedence over the
Iiish Land Purchase bill. The sup
pollers of tho Government as well as
the opposition desire a reasonable op
portunity of examining tho provisions
of the bill before the second reading Is
debated, nnd this renders it practically
impossible that the measure should be
pmcicdcd with until afler Easter.
Meanwhile thero would bj advantage
in gctling the Tithes bill read a second
time, as there is every indication
that the longer tho measure is
cousidpicd, tho greater will bo
the amount of opposition. Already
tho favorable effect it made on a certain
number of the agricultural supporters
of ihe Government Is passing away and
objections aro taken lo its provisions
from many points of view. A proposal
will certainly be mado to make re

application is made by ono of tlio inter

where the lithe is under twenty shill

The battle over the so-called "Lo
pecq Rembrandt" rages in Paris with
undiminished violence, and threatens
to divide the critical world there as seriously-as
the burning question of tho
exhibition recompenses has already
sundered the Paribian painters. Tho
correctness of ihe attribution to tho
master himself Is still supported with
energy by M. Gonse and M. Do Lostnl
of Iho (Jttzctle tk'x Jlcmt.r Arts; and
n ciltic of much greater eminence,
M. Paul Mentz, one of tho greatest
Fici)ch nuikoilties on Flemish art, has
cxpicssed himself unreservedly and
with fervent admiration with regard to
tliu worlc. Yet by far the greatest
weight of evidence is against tho as
sumption that tho rediscovered "Abram
with tho Angels" is to be attributed to
the brush of Rembrandt himself, al
though it Is practically admitted on all
sides that thesignaluro "Rembrandt, f.,
lGufl," has all the appearance of heinc
genuine. M. Henry Harvaid, Andre
Michel aud Albert Wolff, among

specialist. Heir llrediiis of Amsterdam
and Heir Bode of lierliu, absolutely

opinion is further shared by the famous

telebiatcd poitmillst M. Leon Bonnat,

whose lesponso to tho tempting sum

the Stress of Easter requirements Is nl
Us greatest with the fair hahitues of thu

No moio hefurrcd nnd bright eyed
beauty lounge languidly In big chairs
behind tho marble pillars and plume
itself foriltly greeting Congressional
manhood when for n moment it lays
down the cases of state to regale Itself
in sweet converse with frail femininity.
The blow fell with crushing sudden
ness, lloth the Heprescntativcs and
their fair visitors wcie taken unawares.
Tho ladles' receiitiouroom had so ltmtr
been the exclusive field of negotiations
relative lo the tender passion,
had been so entirely given over
to the ladles and their designs
on Congressional fancies in " n
word to "mashing" that it
had conic to be regarded by both
parties to these affairs in clover as a
permanent tiling. So when Miss Maud
tripped up tlio long Might of white
marble steps on the toe of her dainty
French boots, happy In the conscious
ness that the sharp air had given her
round cheeks n most temptingly roseate
huo.iho was given quite n turn by the

with lis marble columns seemed like a

her that the ladies' reception room had
been moved to Statuary Hull. "IVhal'
