(Bib ?. The explosion ol Issi nlghl n?? doubt had
nnieh to ?'.o with the spparent unwillingness of
the jurors to serre In this ease, for it is taken
ta? prove that the police will noi be able to pro?
tect ths jurors after the trial is finished. There
pas a reninrl?-.iiile collection of materials on a

several stonca All <?f three articles were part

that Denoti and Bulot should hate demanded

. the brutality of the police when they
Miested my comrn ios revolted my conscience, snd

Geminili explosion, I loaded s bomb thai contained
slvtv Calrtridges. I dressed myaelf in broodoloth

Ittenti? n. Alter depositing the machine and light
lag the fu^e, I un downstairs and reached tbe

operation in tbe IG * a*-? l?- ( lichy was much the same,
only ? earried the bomb in s i>?c? ? p rt?-iti <rt the
powder became displaced, and thus n-nderoi it ex?
tremely daofsrscts te light, ss i' might expio'le in
an instant. Yet I did not hesitate to take tin.?
risk."
Ravachol ooneliided his remarks w.'h an tXr

Another in the long lint of chups wherein an
old and trusted employe betray.? the Conti.lene"
repoeed in him is now nsder Invest-gatloa by the
Central Office detectives. The defaulter in this
instanee Is Mid to be Ferdinand C. Ewer, who I
for many ?rears has occupied a responsible position
tn the c.rhin Banking Company. The passion
for betting on torse>?aeee bss driven Mr. Ewer to
Ir? rnin. broken np his home sad m-nle him s
ti ?? from pitici?.
The bank controlled hy Austin Corhin at No.
IBS I'.r.iadway is divided into iwo departmento.
The lirst of these ?s devoted entirely to ordinary
hanking btaidnesa The second if? given over
mainly to the negotiation of loans on real estate.
Mr. Ewer win? employed in the loan d?pannant
and tlii'io, it in Understood, had ucees? to mogi
of the Correspondence on matters relating to the
negotiation of lo?n>?, the payment of interest, nnd
ti e r?demption of nrtortL-H^es.
__ it his defalcations extend over a consider?
able period of time is almost certain. Just
when be began to Steal or how he contrived to

pleted tlieir examinations of the accounts ?nd

fused to enter into the details of tlio story. As
to tbe particular set of dishonesty which leti be
the dlseoveiy of the defalcations and t<> Mr. Ewer's
flight? the facts ere however clear.
For some years the hank suthorities bad been
aware of Mr. Ewer's weakness for ra'dn? and
hetting. They had several times ?rarned him to
desist, but always without effect? Finally, it is
ul, they suspended blm from duty, only allowing
him to resume work oa the undentandlng that
be would give up gambling. It was just an hour
before noon on net Bat-arday, how?
ever, when Mr. Edgell, who bad lf>

the mortgage pait?is ?sere noi yel ready, sad that
he would have to wun until Monday before he

To only three ?? the clerks was the combination

All thronirh Monday morning Ewer lemalned

IBT niO-ffg TO THE TB1DIME.1
Albany, Apri. _<J.?? I.?*_i.s!?itivo Apport I anm-MTl
bill which defrauds tbe rural voter? of fee State
nnd puts controlli'ipr leglalative power into the
bande of the Crn!;i-rs, Miupliy? und Mcf/mghlina
who contr.,1 the De amera tie ?rotee of tbe ?zreat
eltiea was paaeed by tbe D?mocratie ?>*iri?lature
to-day, and then the body adjourned sine die. It
ana a iittinir eoneluaton to the labors of a Le?ie
lafire tbat wns ereated hy fraud, went ot cheating
tbe voter?, and finally d ?strane h is-d thwi.-tui'ls of
voters livi-ii? in the interior of the State. Hut)
the work done to-day was what ?wm especially
aimed at by David H. Mill, Isaac [{. Maynard, Kiori
ard Croker und Edward Murpby, jr.. wlien they
?iole the Legtalatan lant Dermi lier. They eotitrh?
an i.pportuTiity to arrange ibe Sonate an. AseeniMy
Diatrioll so that tbe Kepublican ri.ml voters ebon Id
not bnve an equal voice in legislative affairs with
tlie De m n?? ntt i e, voters in tin? cities. They have
accomplished that am. te far tit? a lecielntive emwit
ment eaa accnmpli.slt It : but in eo doing, they bave
also annihilated the legislative influence of tli?
Democratic voter? in tbe rural port of the State.
It tb? Democratic voter llsring in rural New York
does nnt., in coming State electiane, show bis re
?ent.ment at thus heimr disfranchised, go far -in the
Leg-donate is concerned, praettcal politici.ias will
be much surpri^d.
Vet the bill was aocepted with slight protesti
by ihe Democratic, le<_b,lrunrs reprcecntitijt; rural
constituencies. Senator Walker succeeded in pre?
servili!? the two nieml.ers nf bis own county of
Stauben, Senator Ofebome tbe two members from
bis county of Dutohess, and S-nator Parker the
four members of bis eoantg of Albany. Dut these
were the only conce?inn- made by the " bnssee"
to tbe rural Democrat?. It will lie p-reeivixi
that these paltry grants tn tlie rural voters con?
cerned tbe As-emMy districts alone. Tbes,? votera
w.-re retentleaaljr robbed ?when the Senate die?
tr?ete w.re cniiccrned. Tbe nature of tbe Senate
reappnrtiiinment can be Jedged of from tbe fact
tbat, with tbe unit, of population at 1*1,OnO for
euch Senat? di-iriet. the nine New-Y irk SenatOM
will repeeaeal 174.000 population eaeh : tin? it Iha?J
Senators I5?S,??3, tlie Binan: la? Pnlntnhlg Sen
atnr 1 '14,71?>, and one of the Krie Senatori only
150,007, On tbe other hand, among tlie rural .Sell?
ale diatrfctn WillOh, of cours??, are all liepublican?
tbe XXIsf, with seven coiintic-, contains a popti??
loti?.11 nf 220,0.14; the XXIId, witb tliree counti"s,
215,946; tbe XXYtb, witb live c,unties, 101,001]
and the XXYItb, with live oonntttn? 207,00t.
There is thus a difference in population between
tl.e liVpuHierin >\lst lii-trict nnd tlie Demo?
gratte XXXtb Distri??! anintintinir tn 70,070.
Nor is the As-cmhly apportionment much bet?
ter. New-York and Brooklyn De tun?ente between
tli??m will bave forty-eight votes in the Assembly,
out of G-'?*: auil it taken only M\tyiive VotM to
Oontrol the body. At le st the-e two Demo?
cratic eitle? iu future will hav.? ? clc.ir n:aj ?rity
in tbe Deaaoeratie Aaeembly ea wxtt?, and will
name tlie Speaker of the Assembly. Tbe daya
of Tweed are fust retuminix, and Twee !'?s Speaker,
'Hilly'' l?itnhieen. would now bave "another
chance. ?
In both branch?e of the Legislature, of eour-ae*

A balf-doien caucuses of Deinoerettg membera
of the Aaeembly were held in the course of the
day, to whip into line various" reprearntntlaeg of
the country eountien who, for the time beiti??,
dared t<> exhibit a mall legree of independenet?
At one time the nolon ??f lh?ree country Detaeomlg
became eo ??G"????G, and looked -?? formidable,thai
u committee wai appointed i<? try to pi, ily them.
In this work the committee was aided by t'oin
u,??inner Qllroy, ?l New-Yuk. who was bere to
run thing! in the inter.-t of Tammany Hall and
Hill. The linst caucus was bel 1 at IO o'eloek t'ala
morning, but the oonntiy Demoerata eonld not at
that tune be Induced t?, v.,;e for tl.e bill.
Thev wanted two members for Niagara,
C'attaraugua, Caynga, Cbautauina, Jefferaon, <>*
wego, St. Lawrence, Dntebeea and Steilen 0 eintlia.
Steuben and Dutchew, however, were the only
comities thai ivoived the increase, and they gag.
ceetled only beeanae the tore Democratic Senatore
repreecnUog th?-,? ,?auntie? bad the aoauaon s^nse
to demand the additional repivscnt.itinn; and to
adhere t,? their demanda.
Tl.e A.ssemlily nift at 11 i.Vl? ck ibLs morning;
but tbe Democrats had not then pntehed up their
Internal differences, and a leeeea was taken until
2 o'eloek tbi.s afternoon. At flial hour go a^ree
mea* had ben reached, and ?till annther ???** waa
taken until ? o'eliok. Late iu tbe afternoon
Meaara Lalng, of Chautanqna'; Jndd and QUIettaj
of Singara, and Tappen, of 1 incida, broke down ami

,11.111 Holly, of Dm Ida ^ was the only memlier who
pretend.? ti stand out ; but his position wai merely
for form's sake. He is a profeaaiooal labor man.
Immeiiiiitely after the opening of the evenin?*
--.-nu, a call of the Hoaae ?wee ordered, t<> ??et
in eSBie ?>f the D?mocratie memlier.? who bad not
, made tiieir eppgnrnaoe. The call liste?l for nearly
, an liniir. At Its cln-e then? began a series of pro
I eeedinga such as only a reckless majority and a
I brutal and unfair Speaker could lie capable of.
I The Speaker banded down the engrogggd Senate
bill; whereupon Mr. Blieb, the leader, moved it to
? geeond reading.
" 1 object," shouted <?onerai Iliiste.l. To tliia
tbe Speaker paid not the len-t attention. Theu
(?eneral Heated made the point of nrder that an
objection prevented the advnneeeen*? of the bill.
"There are no rub?.?,," sneered the D?mocratie
leader. '
"The bill ha? been -?ent fe ? second reading,*?
added the Speaker, .with a wliat-are-ynii-^oinu-to
doabout-it air. At tbe same time be declared
that (ieneral Hunted'? point of order
trai not well taken. Aawntoentl offered by.
Assemblymen Judson. of Fulton and Hamilton,
and BeUeak, of Oewegeb ehaagiag the Senate dit?
