ThePresent Grand Jury to be Dis^^charged, the Question ot Nation^^ality Cutting a Figure.

Chka^.^^. May 2V ^ There h^Te bfen no^Dfw dPV^-lopiu^-iita 10 theCrotjin oiw to-^d.ty ot a start linn nature. The authorities^say the report ot the proceedings before the^grand jury, as printed in the morning^papers, and a portion of which Is given be^^low, ^ u greatly exaggerated. They claim^tliat there was no such testimony as that^accredited to Carlson, and that nothing^particularly new was adduced before the^jury. Capiases, in accordance with the in^tt'etmen;^. wi-ic served on three persons^to-day.
W^odrutf, wh^n seen by reporters, re^^fused to talk further about his confession,^^.yuiK he had said too much already^CouKhlm wouiit have nothing at all to say.^e ther to reporters or the chief of police^when the latt*r visited him.
Thecoroner's jury anseibhled this morn-^kas, but alter consulting with the state's^attorney the coroner decided to postpone^t ie inquest until next Tuesday. It ts uu-^^! ^ r*bxKl it was the desire of the authorities^t':^t this be t'one for fear some testimony^iiititht come out before the public inquest,^which would retard the police work. Chief^Hubbard.when seen by a reporter to-niifht,^said there was nothing new to be said; that^Ciey were busy working on several clues,^but no fresh arrests are contemplated.
Itis stati d to night upon apparently^good authority that the present grand jury^will not be asked again to give the Cronin^case any further consideration. The seri-^^ us character of this announcement is best^appreciated when it is remembered that a^considerable number of the members of^t'ie present grand jury are Irishmen, or of^Irish descent. While State's Attorney^l.oiigenecker is voiceless as a .sphynx as to^the reason for declining to continue the to-^%estigation under the present jory. those^high in authority do not deny that the ques^^tion of nationality has much to do with his^decision.
Thisevening Byron K. Smith, the re^^ceiver of the defunct Traders hank, in^which it is said some of the funds which^Cronin had mysteriously referred to in nis^pamphlet on the alleged stealing were de^^posited, was closeted with Chief Hubbard^f ^r an hour or more. This would indicate^fie authorities have widened the scope of^their inquiry beyond the responsibility of^the perpetrators of the murder, and are^acting on the inuendoes of the doctor's^friends.
Thepolice were busy all day searching^every conceivable spot in the vicinity of^the Carlson cottage and the place where^the body was found in an endeavor to find^some trace of Cronin's clothing ami the^c%se of medical instruments, of which no^trace has been found. The underclnthtnK^found by Widow llamburgher's children^prove not to he that of the dead man.
PeterMctieehan. the I'hlladelphia sus^^pect, talking this evening to a reporter,^s kid that several days ago he was taken by^a detective to gee Mrs. Conklin. She first^said Mr (ieehan was not the man who called^for the doctor, then her husband came in^and the detective introduced Mctieehan.^Immediately upon hearing the name Mrs.^Conklin surveyed M' (ieehan again and de^clared he was th^- man who lured the doctor^away. McGeehan said: ^1 b-lieve that^woman is capaMe of swearing a man's life^away. Conklin had added to her reckless^judgment some stories about me that I shall^call him t i legal account for. Oman, the^hvery ^^^^. says 1 do not answer the de^^scription ul lh^- man n-anted The police^now k - o v that 1 had nothing to do with^the ca^c I believe that the plot, conspir^^acy or ^ -. ever you may call it. was pure^^ly a i- - ... i. matter, and that the right^clue has not yet been struck, or if found^has not been published.
11.tor. the t.r o..i Jury.
Chk^At.^, May L'V.^ Several important^1 nks in the evidence connecting the cir^^cumstances surrounding Dr. Cronin's death^were brought out before the grand jury-^yesterday. Milkman Mertes testified that^shortly after he saw a man resembling^Cronin go up the steps of the cottage he^heard rounds like pounding and crunching.^Young Carlson, whose parents own the^blood-stained cottage, learned from the^Swedish truckman who brought the furni-^t jre to the cottage that it came from rooms^at 117 Clark street, opposite Cronin's office.^A description of the man who bought this^furniture and took it to 117 Clark street is^now in the hands of the police. Mrs.^Carlson gave a close description of the man^who hired the cottage.
Thecoroner's jury met this morning^without taking testimony, and adjourned^till Monday.
Theattorney sent to Toronto by Dr. Cro^^nin's friends to see c. T. l.onc. the news^^paper correspondent who wrote fictitious^interviews with the dm tor. has returned,^ljon'g was laboring under a great nervous^strain, but could not be brought to confess,^in spite of the fact that Cronin whs dead,^that the alleged interviews wer- not gen^^uine. While the attorney was in Toronto^t.e ine' ^Hilly^ Starkey, the Chicago attor^^ney who left the t ity to escape going to the^penitentiary for jury bribery. He found^upon investigation that Starkey and Long,^who were professional shorthand writers^in Chicago six or seven years ago, were on^terms of friendly intimacy and that about^the time the fictitious dispatches were^wired to Chicago they were in daily con^^sultation. From this he deducted the con^^clusion that Starkey had a hand in concoct^^ing the dispatches. He knew Cronin well,^tor be was engaged in an effort made to^compel Cronin to make certain statements^before a justice of the peace in a fictitious^suit put on record by the doctor's enemies.

No disruption is ap^^prehended from this action.

Testimony of Irish Leader* foucerniaa*^llo * eot t lug and League Books.
Lomdon.May 2V ^Maurice Healy, mem^^ber of parliament, was before the Parr.eii^c*inmi*s^on to-day and admitted that the^Cork branch of the lea* je received appli^cations fromothtr branches for a list of^merchants who were members of the^league, in order that other merchants^m grit l^e boycotted. Healy held it was^legitimate to place s^ch pressure upon^shopkeepers.
JosephH g^ar. member of parliament,^testified that he bad been a member of the^supreme council of the Fenian Brother^^hood, but bad been expelled in 1NK7 for ad^^vocating constitutional action. He joined^the lard league in 1H^si. He declared the^meaniLg of the speech he made at Cork^in the sprng of 1880, Id^whici he referred to the anarchist^liartiuann as having imitators^in Ireland, had been mif understood. As a^fact ne was the only warm supporter of^the whiggisb candidates and the distrust of^HM p. ople was likely to result in the use of^dynamite. In a subsequent speech at Cas^^tletown he advised the people to take care.^The land they occupied should be of no^benefit to land grabbers. He further said^it was no part of the league's duty to rec^^ommend the shooting of landlords, but that^it was its duty to defend any h sly charged^with shooting landlords or their agents^He said that was bteatise no confidence^was placed in the administration of the^law and be held that the league ought to^dcfeni prisoners whose crimes were the^outcome of bad laws, lie and Patrick^Emu and himself were the trustees of the^turds of the league. He could not asso-^Tiiteeithf r Kir.au or Sheridan with outrages.^ii g^rar said he contributed nothing ^to the^Fenian funds. His object in joining the^brotherhood w as to obtain its assistance in^p rliamentary action. Sir Henry James,^tor the Times, cross examined Kiggar^Witness said he never iook part in the^work ot the le gue as treasurer: never^drew a check or saw the bankbook. He^was naturally indolent and lettthe work to^others. He did not know where the rec^ords i f the money dealings of the league^were kept, nor did he even know why he^associated with Kgan as treas^^urer. Just before the suppression of the^Imid league most of the books were te~^inovd; thirty-two books hs.d been handed^to Soames. the solicitor for the Tunes.^Presiding Judge Hanuen remarked this^was the first time he had heard about these^b toks. Sir Henry James said It was a^mistake, there were no such books In^Soames' posses ion. Blggar said all im^^portant book s ot the league had been re^^moved to Kngland; they were very bulky.^He did not know any of the books had been^destroyed. He had not the slightest notion^of what has become of the missing docu^^ments.

EvanstonCn eftain: A gigantic scheme^11 on foot to bui.d an irrigating canal 100^miles in length, which will start at Bear^river canon, about one mile from its mouth^and run to Ogden. * The river will be^(lammed and water raised twenty feet^above its present level, which will give a^great bead of water. The canal will be^twenty feet at the bottom, with capacity^enough to take all tbe water in the river.^There will be several tunnels on tbe line,^and a part of tbe way It will be put^through solid rock, winding around^the mountains. Tbe coat of its^construction is estimated at $2,000.^000, which will give several hundred men^employment. When completed, tbe canal^will irrigate and redeem thousands of acres^of land, making it fertile, which at present^is almost worthless without water. The^projectors of the wonderful scheme is com^^posed of New York city and Cheyenne par-
Washington.May 2V ^Gardner Van^Nostrand, brother of one of the American^laities arrested in Mentone. France, at the^instance of a milliner, was at the depart^^ment of state this morning. He made s^formal statement of the case. Tbe papers^have been filed and the department will^look into the case.
TbeNew York Herald, of late date, re^^ferring to the above, says:
Tbeladies are Mrs. Dorr, widow of Ho^ratio Dorr, a prominent insurance man:^Miss Van Nostrand, a daughter of one of^Brooklyn's wealthiest citizens, and Miss^Marvin, daughter of a partner in Marvin^Krothers, bankers. All belong to the Four^Hundred.
.Thetrouble arose at Nice over the pur-^Chase of some dresses from a dressmaker^who tried to force tbem to take unfinished^goods at tbe moment of their departure and^refused to makeover a dress. After try ing^every means of bulldi zing and browbeat^^ing to get the money the dressmaker, Mad^^ame i oturien. had all tbe ladies arrested,^notwithstanding the dresses were but for^two of tbem.
Ofthis outrage Mrs. Dorn tells the fol^^lowing story: ^We came to Mentone and^occupied apartments at the hotel Mentone.^After dinner we were informed that some^one desired to see us. On going out we^found a rough looking Frenchman with a^piece of paper in his hand. He informed^us that he was ordered to arrest us. He^read a description of our persons from the^paper, but had only one nf our names, 'hat^of Miss Van Nostrand. Expostulation was^useless, but the hotelkeeper, saying it^would only be a matter of form, accom^^panied us to the bureau. The same person^who arrested us accompanied us to a mis^^erable building, in a room of which, seated^by a table, ha assumed the magisterial^office, asked our names and demanded^everything from our pockets, even our^handkerchiefs and gloves.
Wesent for the American consul,^Leucy, who arrived with his secretary.^Tbe consul was a Frenchman and the sec^^retary, his brother-in-law, an Italian.^They said they did all they could, but the^man who arrested us decided that nothing^would do but we must all go to a cell,^where we were locked up. The cell was a^regular dungeon, with a grated window^high in the wall and a smaller one in the^door. Along the side was a slanting^wooden shelf, about six feet wide,^leaving nuly standing room on the^floor. It was a damp, filthy, evii-smelling^place. Our feelings may well be imag^^ined. Tbe police officers then locked us up^and we had tbe pleasing consciousness that^there were two sentries patrolling in front^of the cell who oi*casinnaily looked through^the grating of the door. The consul left^us, promising to t^legraph at once to Nice^and procure permission for our release un^^der surveillance in our rooms at the hotel.^About 1 o'clock in tbe morning we were^released under police surveillance and^taken to our rooms at the hotel, where we^were locged in. The policeman kept guard^at the door with the freedom of looking in^at us at his pleasure.
TheFrench authorities at Nice tele^^graphed Miss Van Nostrand that the party^could be released upon payment of the bill;^otherwise they must remain in durance,^not in the hotel, but in tbe dungeon. The^commissary at once decided against us,^giving Miss Van Nostrand five minutes to^decide between paying the entire bill, with
coursewe paid, and as tbe matter now^stands we have been put in prison, insulted^beyond expression, compelled to pay $100^tor garments which have not been de^^livered to us^and all in the name of law.

Waahingtonspecial to the Caicago Inter^Ocean: A congressman, who is on as close^relations with the president as any con^^gressman and who has recently had re^peaU'd interviews with him. gives this^opinion as to the course of appointments^during the remainder of the fiscal year:^^It is my judgment that most of tbe dis^^content relative to appointments which ex^ists on the part of a good many congress^men will disappear ^with the begin^^ning of the new fiscal year.^Most of the leading place* have already^Is-en considered. The decision as to the^greater part ot them is. I am convinced,^substantially reached. There will be a^pretty general jail delivery of the demo^^cratic incumbents by July 1. You can see^in talks witb ail of the members of the ad^^ministration that there is some sort of a^concurrent plan as to the fiscal year as a^terminal |k^int for the old and an initial^point for the new order ot things.^Whenever you call up any officer^the first consideration is wherever^you go, what is the date of the com^^mission ^ Books are then taken down and^an inquiry made to ascertain when the in^cumbent of the office that you are talking^about was appointed. If the date of tbe^commission is anywhere near the fiscal^year^if it runs into August or September^^1 have been led to understand that resigna^^tions will be asked for if th -y shall not^already be at hand. Everything is substan^^tially slated already and tbe last day of^June will be the general clearing house^day.
ChicagoHerald: Tbe Methodist and^Episcopal minister of Sheffield, Ala., no^longer speak as they pass by. and the feel^ing between them is extending to the men -^bers of tbe churches. It all crew out of a^scheme of tbe Methodist ministers, who or^^ganized tbe Preachers' Investment con-^pan) for the purpose of speculating in real^estate. A few days ago an Episcopal min^^ister published in a Sheffield paper a com^muni cation suggesting tbe organization of^a preachers' improvement company, to^which all ministers, and especially those^of tbe Methodist church, be admitted. He^suggested that the object of tbe organ za^tion be the moral aad spiritual improve^^ment of ministers, and they be especially^warned of the evils of gambling and specu^^lation. This drew fortn some red-hot per-^sonal replies from the Methodist ministers^and then tbe laymen took it up.

PUBLICSCt!CQl-8 CLOSED^Helena Teachera and I'uplls Will Take a^Three Months* Vacation.
Yesterdaywas a glad time for the chil^^dren who attend Helena's public schools.^It was the last day of school and they are^now free to enjoy a three months' vaca^^tion. While the approach of vacation is^always welcome to the boys and girls, it is^also mingled with regret and affectionate^partings with the teachers who have la^^bored among them so long. Closing exer^^cises were held in nearly all the schools^and were attended by many of the parents^of the pupils. The high school class gave^a very entertaining programme in the^afternoon. During the morning Mrs. M. S.^Cummins, the efficient principal, addressed^her class in an instructive way and hoped^she would be able to meet them again at^the next session and wished them an en^joyable vacation. At 2 p. m. the exercises^began. The high school room proved in^^adequate to the attendance and many peo^^ple stood in the hallway. The programme^rendered was as follows:

MissJennie Tonn's recitation ^ Too Late^for the Train,^ was excellently spoken and^very amusing, and Harry Yaeger's essay,^^Formation of tbe Consitution,^ showed^careful research for facts and was a paper^highly creditable to the young mm. In^each of their parts the scholars did well^which was a source of gratification to their^teacher, Mrs. Cummins.
Asa cloaing event Prof. Carleton ad^drewaed the school. He urged tbe pupils to
continuein their onward path and assured^the children that during Iris year's experi^^ence in schools be had yet to meet a mo:e^intelligent body of the rising generatioo^than those ot Helena He told them all to^first try and graduate in the high school^that they might lie better tit to enter a col^^lege, lie cited several instances of Helena^graduates who had taken a prominent rank^iu the noted colleges of the east, and ot ^^young man in particular who had gradu^^ated in Helena and was now^tenth in a class of five hun^^dred. He mentioned that Helena^students were honored in Iowa colleges as^pupils of no other state are. When a^young man or woman presents a certificate^from a Helena school he or she is mim-di^ately admitU d to the freshmen class, which^he considered a high compliment to tbe in^^telligence of Montana's youth. He said it^was not without a feeling of regret that he^would take bis leave of the scholars among^whom he bad spent a number of years,^which he shall always look back upem with^pleasant memories He also referred to the^cramped condition of the high school^quarters, but assured the children that at^no distant day they would be given a large^and commodious structure for the proper^pursuit of their intellectual labors.
Prof.Carleton then went through a gen^eral handshaking with the scholars, and^wishes for success were cordially ex^changed. The pupils dispersed after bidding^their esteemed instructors farewell.
Manyot the teachers have laid their^plans for a much-needed summer's recrea^^tion, and in a short time will depart for^various points of tbe compass.
VVholesalr Horse atealiag.
MilesCity Journal: The residents in^and about Old Town awoke yesterday^morning to find a shortage of from ten to^fifteen head of their best horses which had^been run off during the night by a gang of^expert horse thieves. The principal suf^^ferer is Charley Young, the superintendent^of the poor bouse, who loses three^nnrses. a saddle. three blankets^and a bridle. Mr. Young informs^os that for some time past an old^shack in tbe neighborhood has been a ren^^dezvous for a gang of tram pa, and as there^was no one to be seen about there yester^^day, It is supposed that they are the thieve*.^One of the hoaaes stolen from him was^picketed inside an enclosure and footmarks^in the soil about the entrance to the en^^closure show that parties wearing cowboy^concerned in the act. The sup-^is that they crossed the Yellow-^at tbe rapids and have struck out for^the British line, sheriff Irvine has started^in pursuit.
Lastweek we publish**!, from tbe Bos^^ton Herald what purported to be a report^of a speech made by Mr. Haggin, the own^^er of the Anaconda mine, at the recent^meeting of th-^ oopper producers In Paris,^^says the Eagineeriug and Mining Journal^of the 25th inst- ^We are autboriz ^d by^Mr. Haggin to say that this report is wholly^inaccurate and 'manufactured out of^whole cloth.' The owner of tbe Anaconda^is not at all given to boasting or -blurting,'^and he considers it would have been dis^^courteous and out of place to have used^th.j language attributed to him by tbe Boa-^ton report Though the speech was apoc^^ryphal, it must be confessed that the re^^porter had a pretty accurate idea of the^possible cost of producing copper at the^Calumet A liecla mine, and if the senti^^ments expressed were altogether his own,^he proved himself a vastly more competent^writer on the copper question than the av-^erage reporter or even editor on tbe New^York dailies.
Theetipper situation has not improved^much during tbe week. It is even reported^as we write, that a lot of Anaconda matte^has just been sold in England at 7a 10-,d.^per unit, an extremely low figure. And^there is as yet no arrangement concluded^by which the stock of Syndicate copper^now in this country, and which amounts^to fully 30.000 tons, is to be taken care of.^Tbe American producers very naturally^insist upon the European banks taking this^copper away, so that it may not be a men^^ace to our market; but it is certain that the^banks would like to dispose of it bete at^our relatively- high prices, should this be^attemptid, the price would go far below 12^cents for laxe copper, and, as tbe quantity^to be exported by the producers would be^increased by the amount of the present^stock sold here, the foreign market would^be more injuriously affected than if the^European banks took their copper out of^this country and marketed it themselves in^Europe gradually.
Americanmines can undoubtedly pro^^duce copper far cheaper than tbe Euro^^pean, even than tbe Rio Tinto mines, and^if driven to it they will put down the price^to a point where many mines both here and^abroad will have to stop, while at the same^time the consumption of copper will be^largely increased. There is still a possi^^bility that such a war in price* may be^avoided. The siainex tbe foreign producers^appreciate the ability of our mines to sup^^ply the world with very cheap copper, the^sooner will they co-operate with ours in^affecting some reasonable ^working basis'^for marketing the large stocks now in the^couutry.
Relativeto tbe recent West Granite-^Elizabeth deal, a St. Louis correspondent^ot tbe Engineering and Mining Journal^writes:
Whatits future will be is very hard to^determine. Well informed mining men^think it rather probable that ultimately a^vein of value will be discovered, but this^is by no means an accomplished fact, and^the future alone can determine whether or^not after all the old West Granite was a^humbug or not. There is one thing, bow-^ever, to be noted in the fl actuation of the^stock, since tbe deal became an accom^^plished fact, and that is that, instead of
swMairiaa*lsMs^^would seem from this the public were not^interested to the same extent they formerly^were, and that tbe parties in iuterest now^^adays are brokers chiefly. I cannot help^believing that a great many of tbe pros^^pective holders of tbe Elizabeth are allow^^ing themselves to take tisj sanguine a view^of the future of the stock, and that it will^have many more ups and downs^than its friends are counting on.
