Transaction on tho Washington Kx
chango Tho Situation,
Tho business of tho local stock board
Saturday was in volumo not much be
yond the usual avcrago of transactions.
For five shares of National Bank of
"Washington stock 475 per share was
paid. This is a falling off from tho
high figure realized several months ago,
when 585 was not an unusual prico for
this valuable stock. Theio isno special
reason for this decline, excopt that sev
eral lots wcro forced on tho market, and
the dealers, realizing that tho stock had
to be sold, let tho prico go off to securo
it as low as possiblo. In tho salo of
llftcen shares of West End National
Bank at 03 an advance of half a point
was scored over tho previous bid of
92J. The closing bid was 02, tho offer
ing at 93. For twenty two shares of
Ecklngton Railroad stock 72 was paid.
This stock has receded from about 03,
tho prico it obtained when tho bill to
extend tho lines of the road by adoublo
track through G street to Fifteenth
passed tho House. Subsequently, wheu
tho Senate amended tho bill io as to
limit tho valuable privileges granted to
a space of thrco years only, tho stock
fell back to about 70.
For soveral weeks tho bidding on
Washington eas stock has been nomi
nal. On Saturday a 111 tie lot of but 3
shares sold for 435. Tho bid stands at
48. with a small offeritig at 45. Tho
bills recently introduced In tho Somite
"by request," proposing that tho Gov
ernment purchase tho Washington Gai
Works and that one million dollars bs
appropriated for tho purposo, has occa
sioned some llttlo apprehension in thu
minds of holdcis, especially non-rosl-dents,
who are unacquiinted with the
tricks of Congressional legislation.
But Washington peoplo, familiar with
the methods of stock jobbers and lobby
ists, regard this apparent effort to
deprcclato this valuable property with
both amusement and contempt. As tho
stock and bonds of. tho company at
their par valuo amount to $2,000,000 and
tho franchiso and plant would probably
bring $10,000,000 under tho hamraor,
tho insincerity of tho proposal, to buy
tho Washington Gas Works with a mil
lion of dollars, is at onco apparent.
Thcro Is still a disposition making to
depress the price of Electric Light stock.
Possibly in a few days those who are
waiting to cct it at 110 may bo accom
modated. On Saturdar ten shares sold
for 112 Jand ten moro for 112. At 112,

There is no Graphophono stock on

Mr. Vest opposed tho bill, protesting
against tho assumption that tho judg

Tho action of tho Senate In recom

HUSK TO THE FARMKKS.
He Will Tell Them How Agricultural
Depression Can Ho Itemedlod.
It is understood that Secretary Rink
is about to issue an address to the farm
ers of tho country explaining how tho
depression in agriculture can be reme
died. Ho attributes the prescntstatc of
affairs In part to carelessness In culturo,
nnd says that in theso days of world
wide competition a successful farmer
must bo as well trained and careful in
business as tho storekeeper nud his
equal in intelligence nndgeueral educa
tion. Tho Secretary also thinks that the
farmer does not study tho market re
pot t as carefully as he should, and rec
ommends that he avail himself of tho
infoi motion supplied by the Agricultu
rin'Department. IIo thinks that farm
ers thould not acquiro moro land than
they can piofltably cultivate. After
touching upon tho questions of farm
mortgages, transportation, tho middle
man, gambling in farm products and
combinations to control tho market, thu
Secretary makes a long argument in
favor of higher duties on farm products.
IIo gives tables to show that our im
ports of agricultural pioducts amount
to $200,273,738, tho greater part of
which, ptobably $250,000,000, might
bo, with proper encouragement, pro
duced on our own soil. He thinks that

Arguments by Defendant' Gounsot.
Charles E. Klncald's nrray of counsol
were beforo the bar of the Criminal
Court this morning at 10 o'clock, tho
time set by Judgo Bingham to glvo hbi
decision as to whether tbo defendant
should bo admitted to ball or not. The
court room was crowded with thoso who
hud come with the expectation of seeing
the prisoner, but they were dlsip
pointed, for it was not deemed neces
sary that ho should prcsont himself In
court on this occasion. Much discussion
had been indulged In between members
of tho legal profession as to whether
bail would bo granted on tho ground of
Judgo Klncald's Illness or not, nnd
there seemed to bo much difference of
opinion. In conscqucnco of this, con
siderable interest was centred In tho de
cision by tho attorneys,
It was 10:30 o'clock when Judgo
Bingham presented himself and lie pro
cccdcd at onco to glvo tho decision,
which was in substanco ns follows)
"Tho ground of tho motion for ball Is
that tho closo confinement in jail will
result disastrously and perhaps fatally
to tho dofendant, who Is charged with
a capital offense. It is of llttlo Importance
to tlio (jourt ns to 1110 antecedent stcic
ness of tho defendant or tho cause. In
cases of this description tho Court
must refer to tho prcsont and im-q
meuiato future In this caso tho afllda-1
vlts show that Mr. Kincald has a voryV
weaK physical constitution nnu nas oeen
atlllcted with many serious illnesses. I
think tho ovidenco established that a
continued confinement in jail would ro-
Milt in serious illness and probably'
tciminato taiauy. it is ucyonet me
power of mortal to tell whether it will
or not. .aicuicai experts is tuo nest au
thority on tills. A man chnrged with n
cilmo of this uaturo must bo presumed
to bo innocent until proven utility. Bo
causo of his being charged with tho
highest crime known to tho law tho ex
ercise of discretionary power by tho
Court is allowed nnd tho law says that
tho defendant may bo admitted to
bail. I have come to tho conclusion
if Mr. Kincald can glvo the bond necos
fin y to -guarantee his appearance for
trial to grant tho motion. The best tcstl
mony ot the wituess under the appli
cation came from men of undoubted
ability and integrity, and the testi
mony had not been contioverted.
Therefore-1 think that it is but fair to
allow the defendant ball.
Mr. C. Maurico Smith, General Gros
venor, Judgo Wilson and Senator D.in
W. Voorhees all stated that whon It
enmo to fixing tho amount of bill they
w ould leavejtbatcntlrely with his Honor,
tut, of couisc, would like to havo It as
leasonablo as possible. Judge Wilson
said that personally Mr. Klncald's
finances wero limited, but ho was rich
in friends, and ho felt satisfied that ho
could furnish any reasonable amount
asked. He understood that the highest
amount asked for was $25,000.
Juugc liogo seemed inclined to suli.
unit to whatever Judgo Bingham said
should bo the amount.
Judgo Bingham placed tho bail at
1520,000, and oidercd that tho defendant
ho brought into court this afternoon at
3 o'clock, at which timo ho would ap
piovo his bonds if they wcio acceptable.
Mr. Kincald was taken out of jail at
noon to day and placed in custody of
Deputy United States Marshal Spring
man. His appearance indicated tho
satisfaction ho folt in being given his
freedom and an oppoitunlty to aid his
crunscl in defending him against
tlio Indictment for murder. At
3 o'clock J. R. Yountr, R. J. Gvnne,
Fiank A. Richardson," David R. Wind
sor nnd John Paul Jones presented
themselves in tho Criminal Court and
wcro accepted ns responsible for tho
$20,0'00 bond required for Mr. Kln
cald's appearanco for trial.
Mr. Kincaid walked out of tho court
room, and his fiicnds consider his ad
mission to bail an important victory on
tho icry threshold of tho case.

Nr.wYontc, April 21. A special to
the Herald fioin Spoknno Falls, Wash.,
relates fevers! incidents in tlio life of
Patrck O'Donnell, tho slayer of Catoy,
the informer. Tho Herald correspon
dent claims that O'Donnell had no cim
ncclion withihe Irish patriots nnd that
his meeting with Carey was entirely ac
cidental, and finally that ho killed Catoy
For two or threo years previous to
18SI1 O'Donnell was In tlio service of a
cnttlo company near Bozeman, Mont,
Ho made frequent visits to Ilozcimin,
upon which occasions ho usually drank
a good deal nnd played faro. Ho often
spoke of having friends In South
Africa nnd said ho intended to visit that
country some day. Flnnlly, In the
spring of 1883. he left Bozcmnu. tclllni
his acquaintances that ho was bound
for Africa. IIo had $050 in cash in his
possession. On tho train between St.
Paul and Chicago ho fell in with somo
gamblers, who fleeced him out of his
monoy. O'Donnell had thoso gamblors
arrested at Red Wing, Minn., and after
laying around Red Wing and St. Paul
for several weeks ho succeeded in net
ting ills monoy back from tho swindlors.
Ho immediately went East, and ou"
July 4 took passage on the steamer Kin
fauns from Philadelphia for Capo
Town. At Darmouth Carey and his
family wero smuggled aboard this ves
sel. The two men becamo acquainted
and associated familiarly together on
the boat. Finally tho men cot Into a
dispute, the nutcomo of which was tho
death of Carcv. O'Donnell was takoti
back to London, 'where ho wns found
guilty of murder and executed. The
prosecution claimed that O'Dounell
was in tho servico of tho Irish patriots
and that ho murdered Carey as a mat
ter of revenge, on account of Carey's
having betrayed tho Irish cause. Thcro
seems no doubt, however, but that
O'Donnell's prcsenco on tho same ves
sel with Carey was purely accidental.

London, April 21. Thcro is overy

Tlio Cretans are being deliberately
driven to desperation by the Turks,
with a view to underdoing tho freedom
pained iu fifty j ears of struggling anil
to restoring tho unlimited Turkish rulo
of the last century. Tho Turks had
tho advantage of being nblo at tho Do
Sinning of last year's disturbances to
put tho Cretans In tho wrong, nnd at
the same timo to gain a mtlltary hold
upon the Island. Tho powers nro em
barrassed first because they cannot
contest the right of tho Turkish Gov
t rnnicnt to repress what was plausibly
represented as an Insurrection, nnd
secondly, because strong pressure on
Turkey might upset tho existing com
binations. Tho Turks have boforo ap
pealed to Russia for help, nnd might
do bo again. Tho powers nro rendered
even moro cautious by their own
present crounlnit into two camps and
by tho dread of precipitating a conflict
between themselves. But this very
hesitation involves tho greatost risk.
Tbo Turks will probably bo unable to
conquer the Cretans. In tho struggle of
1800 08 Turkey spent $50,000,000 and
lost C0.000 men without succeeding. If
a similar effort should bo again required
Turkey can make it only upon condi
tion that she has no distractions clso
whero. But at this moment tho Sultan
has to face a strained situation nllku in
Asia and in Europe
Tho outcomo of his latest attempt to
cocrco Crcto cannot bo predicted, but
thcro will probably bo somo Interference
by tho powers to put a stop to tho
butchery, not so much in tho interest
of tho Cretan sufferers as in that of
Turkish bondholders, who do not want
to sco the Ottoman revenues wasted in
a doubtful and useless warfare.
