Ban Francisco, Sept. 19. George King,
the organist of the Emmanuel Church, who

said to have told another story of his meet

Uie one he gave yesterday on the witness

It is more dramatic, it is luller or details,
and lie is said to have imparted it to a few
intimate, friends aAfew days or so after
tho discovery of tbe 'church horrors.
It has been repeatefl and reached the cars
.of tho district-attorney somewhat after tJjls
' When King "returned from tbe drug
store with, the bjcpmo seltzer he met Dur
rant and immediately handed tbe drug to
him. A violent chill iiaescd 'through the
frame of the latter, and he half staciri-rcd
tos he turned to"gotobc back of t lie church.
King accompanied him to tbe kitchen, and
asDurrantjjrepared the dose, his com
panion noticed 'that another chill shook
bis body. t.
IT WAS HORRIBLE.
"What's the mattertr he asked.
Durrant gave-ho-aniwcr, but placed tho
glass to his lipgnrxl drank half the con
tents. Almost immediately he shuddered
"Horrible, horriblcl" ho said to him
self. He lifted tbe' .glass to bis lips again
and emptied tbe contents.
"What," asked King, "tbe seltier?"
"No," said Durrani, with a chill that
shook blfcand, "no; tho gas."
This is rather different from the story'
that K3ngto!d on'the stand yesterday that
Is, In the,.fact, that ic contains details.
Several people imimateipacqualnted with
King are said to nave beard this story from
bis own lips In the, -week following last

"One-halt million or more of this gold"
Mr. Cornwell said, "could be shipped to the
Treasury and legal tender substituted In
tbe Me deposit vaults without the slightest
Inconvenience, and so far as a local
medium for tbe oettlement ot exch ange, tbe
legal tender would fill every requirement,
"If the leading cities ot the country would
all take this action the twenty or thirty
millions needed by the Treasury would
immediately be forthcoming, and matters
would be tided over until exports of
produce began to bring gold this way."

certainly foreshadow a sudden and sur
prising change in the attitude heretofore
chalntalnedby theadmlnbtrationln respect
to the peudiug Campaign in Kentucky.
Astonishing as it has appeared to poli
ticians in this city. Mr Cleveland has from
he outet planned ..nd executed a policy
if unfriendliness tuwasd the Dcruocralia
party and its State ticket In Kentucky
that has seriously threatened ti cnlminata
In Republican success.
Xot only this, but the deliberately de
viled programme of destruction, amounting'
almost to annihilation, is having a disas
trously depressing effect In other States
where Xovembcrelectiiins will be held.
But William C. Whitney, realizing the
exigencies of the situation, and foreseeing
th far reaching effect of the President's
system of punishment and extermination as
applied to Kentucky Democrats, has done
that for the party which the Chief Ex.
ecutlve would not himself perform or pct
mlt others to do.
WHIT-VETc'S FIND HAND.
Mr. Whitney, by virtue of his leadership
and great services to the party, has Issued
commands, framed In no uncertain orcquivo
cal language, to the effect that the unre
lenting fight waged by tbe Administration
must at once be discontinued and not again
prosecuted. The injunction is not only pe
remptory but conclusive.
As the representative of the Administra
tion so far as the fight in Kentucky is con
cerned. Secretary Carlisle was selected
as the man upon whom the injunction was
formally served. It is impossible to mis
take the language or to hazard disobedience.
The Secretarj will acquiese in the views
of Mr. Whitney and the ruthless persecu
tion of Kentucky Democrats will cease.
Xot only will this change of front by
the Administration be clearly apparent to
even those who run and read, butthc re
vulsion of sentiment will go farther and
be more clearly demonstnited. A faith
ful, honest, persistent effort will be made
to repair the damage already accomplished
and to secure, if possible, tho success of
the State ticket.
There are a number of gentlemen Inpubho
ife here -who are fully conversant with tho.
fact, that neither the President nor Secre
tary Carlisle have had part or parcel In the
changing of their plans, as applied to Ken
tucky. They bave not conferred on the
wbject, and have neither exchanged advicaj
WHAT CLEVELAND WANTED.
So far as external impressions would
indicate, both were- jointly determined, by
means of administration influence, as
exerted through Federal officeholders, lo
cated In every village and at every cross
roads, to utterly disrupt the party, the
question of finance being the bone of con
tention and wedge of division.
But the mouthful bitten oft was too large
for, mastication, and neither the zeal In
spired by the hope of reward, nor the per
formance of duty obtained through threats
of condemnation and punishment, could
carry to a consummation the carefully pre
pared policy of disaster and destruction.
The beneficial effect of Mr. Whitney's In
tervention will be soon apparent, and un
less the seeds of discord shown by tbe
President and bis Secretary of the Treas
ury have been too widely-distributed, and
developed too vigorous a growth, the great
injury done the Democratic party in Ken
tuckey may be eo far retrieved as to m.iko
success a certainty. In the approaching rr
