1 CHANCE TOR LIFE.
Mrs. Maybrick's Many Friends Will
1 Leave Ko Stone Unturned in
THEIR EFFORTS TO SAVE HER.
Members of Tarliament Take an ActiTe
Interest in the Case,
ASSISTANCE COMING FKOM AMERICA.
The Condemned Woman Firmly Belieres Thst Bne
Every effort is being made to induce the
Home Secretary to interfere to prevent the
execution of Mrs. Maybrick. A number of
distinguished personages will appeal to him.
New evidence in the case is being collected
in New York and elsewhere.
London, August 9. In addition to the
memorial to the Government in behalf ot
Mrs. Maybrick, which has been signed by
most of the barristers and solicitors of the
Liverpool circuit, and the petition which
has been circulated among the merchants
and brokers, Parliament itself has taken up
the case of the condemned woman. A num
ber of members of the House of Commons
have decided to make a combined appeal to
the Home Office for her reprieve.
Their action is based not only on the con
fusion in the medical testimony taken, but
also on the peculiar behavior of the Judge,
which has excited a ferment of indignation
throughout the country. The (preman of
the jury has been interviewed concerning
the verdict which he and his fellow jurors
so hastily brought in. and he showed no
knowledge of the merits of the case, and to
be possessed of only a confused notion of
the evidence which haa Deen presented in
A PEPtTMAB JUROR.
He did not know that Sir Charles Bussell
had oflered in court to call witnesses who
would orove that the statement made by
the accused was perfectly true, and that
Justice Stephen refused to hear this im
portant testimony. He admitted that he
would not be sorry if a reprieve were
granted, notwithstanding his voice in favor
of the verdict of murder. The general im
pression left by the interview is that the
jurors allowed themselves to be swayed and
biased br the grossly one-sided summing np
of the Judge, and that they gave a hasty
verdict without giving the case and the
evidence any personal consideration.
Mrs. Maybrick is completely prostrated
after the terrible strain of the trial, and is
unable to see anybody but her mother and
her counsel. To her mother Mrs. Maybrick
said that but for the Judge's severe com
ments and lengthy allusion to the wicked
immorality of which she had been guilty,
and which she freely admits, the jury cer
tainly would have acquitted her.
She continues to protest her innocence,
and declares that but for her evil connec
tion with Brierly and the prejudice occa
sioned against her in consequence of her in
fidelity to her husband, and to the Judge's
strong references to this infidelity, the jury
would never have found her guilty on the
gimsy though no doubt suspicious facts re
tted as evidence against her.

many who would remain
friend! v to her are making everv effort to ob
tain a reprieve. It bad. she considered, been
conclusively proved by medical evidence of
rae most weighty description mat ner Hus
band had not died from arsenical poisoning.
She felt that if the medical evidence alone

ities they would never indorse th sentence
of the jury a sentence which, despite her
terror ana anguish at the time, she knew
perfectly well wns not in accordance with
the feeling of the general public. Not a
single member of the jury was a Liverpool
man. The foreman belonged to St. Helens,
and all the other jurors WLre drawn in from
the diflereut parts of the country. No one
had held any communication with them ex
cept the waiter who served them with their
meals, and his conversation was entirely on
Mrs. Maybrick's two children have, since
the commencement of the prosecution, been
staying with friends of the family in the
neighborhood of Aigbarth. They have been
left in complete ignorance of the charge
against their mother and have not even been
told the cause of her absence, though, they
knew their father was dead.
If the popular movement for commuta
tion fails and the death sentence is carried
iuj,-ne lime for hanging rests solely with
.he Sheriff. H may be very soon. The law
implicitly requires' that three successive
Sundays must intervene between the sen
tence of death and the day of execution.
SOME NEW EVIDENCE.
A dispatch from New York says: Bowe
and Macklin, counsel for Mrs. Maybrick in
this country, have cabled their London
solicitors, asking if Home Secretary Mat
thews will consider new evidence, if fur
nished immediately. Mr. Macklin savs
they have considerable evidence to submit,
corroborating Mrs. Maybrick's testimony,
and also testimony as to' her standing and
character socially in this country.
He thinks that if this testimony was ad
mitted and considered, it would change the
aspect of the case to her favor. He ex
hibited this afternoon a photograph of Mrs.
Maybrick, taken at the age of 20 years,
showing a girl, handsome in face and figure
with brown hair and large, expressive eyes.
"I have known Mrs. Maybrick," he said,
"ever since she was 12 years old. She was
a sensible, high-minded girl. In 1882 I ac
companied her and hermotherto the steamer
Celtic, when they started for Europe.
Charles Stewart Parnell and Mr. Maybrick
both sailed on that vessel, and it was on this
voyage that Mrs. Maybrick first met her
husband. It seems a strange coincidence
that Sir Charles Russell should have been
counsel in both Mr. I'arneH's and Mrs. May
VERY BARE INDEED.
Regarding the chance of interference
with the sentence on the part of the Home
Secretary, Mr. Macklin said:
"They have a curious law in England,
providing that where an adverse decision is
rendered in any but a murder case, an ap
peal can be taken to a higher court, and
from that to the House ot Lords; but when
the case is murder the decision rendered by
the jury is nnal, and the cases where the
Judge's sentence has been overruled by the
Home Secretary are very rare. Still I hope
we can do something."
Sir. Macklin says the case is strangely
similar to the Witter poisoning case, tried
in Denver two years ago, with a verdict of
acquittal. He has telegraphed for the
records of that trial.

BOULANGER A BAD HAN.
A Terr Lone Array of Cbnrces Blade
Acalnst Hint by,lhe Government.
Paris, August 9. The trial of General
Boulanger before thehigh court of the Sen
ate was resumed to-day. The Procureur
Genera, continuing his Address, charged
that General Boulanger had hejd a veritable
political court at Clermont-Ferrand, when
he was in command of the troops there.
He had originated secret intrigues, electoral
agitation and a system for corrupting offi
cials. Notwithstanding these acts, he had
written to the War Office disclaiming any
connection with what had been done in his
name. Here there were protests from the
Senators belonging to the party of the
Eight, The Procureur General declared
there were documents before the Court
which clearly marked the downward path
of General Boulanger from Insubordination
to intrigue, falsehood and conspiracy. The
Government had also evidence to show that
General Boulanger had tried to have con
veyed to Prince Bismarck the information
that he (Boulanger) only desired to be ap
pointed Consul fc- life.
The Procureur General described the pro
ceedings of the League of Patriots at Roche
fort, and the initial steps of the attempt
against the State, which commenced with
the scene at the Lyons depot, .when Bou
langer started for " Clermont-Ferrand, and
continued until the Longchamp's review,

FLIRTATION BY 3IIRE0R.
A Novel Blethod of Exchanging Tender
Glances Discovered In Buffalo.
A flirtation by the aid of a mirror seems
like a novel idea.and yet this was the unique
performance witnessed by the Arounder
yesterday afternoon. They were standing
in front of a soda fountain drinking, of
course a youth, and a maiden. She was
passinc fair, shy, susceptible, and he,
thonghtful, even on the dreamy order, im
pressionable Derhaps, but withal a fair spec
imen ot intellectual young manhood. It was
not until they raised their glasses to their
lips that they met each other's eyes in the
large mirror above the fountain. She
blushed and looked down into her glass, and
he grew slightly crimson about the ears
and looked out into the street. Presently
they raised their glasses a second time, and
having grown bolder, they looked a little
longer each into the other's eyes and blushed
a shade deeper. Then came another breath
ing sDell. For their lives ther dared not
turn and loot each otber-sqnorely in the
face, but the glasses seemed to make matters
a little safer at long range.
Finally he thought he would have another
glass, itwas such "excellent flavor," and
she bless her sweet lips thought her glass
was a trifle too sweet and asked the clerk if
he wouldn't please put in a little more soda.
By the druggist's clock they were just six
minutes drinking their glasses of soda, and
as she walked slowly down the street, tap
ping her parasol thoughtfully on the pave
ment, and be watched her dreamily from
the druggist's door, the Arounder wondered
if it was not possible for matches to be made
at soda fountains as well as in heaven.
HONEST MR. BULLION.
An Example In BIoney-GettlBff Which
Wished His Son to Imitate.
Mr. Benjamin Bullion is a well-known
broker, and he was giving his son a lecture
the other day. "Koo, Johnnie," he said,
solemnly and impressively, "mind whit I'm
tellin' ye, ma son:ahune a' things be honest;
let naething drive ye frae the path o' virtue;
nae temptation or hope o' gain lead ye frae
the narrow way; tak' an example frae yer
auld faither. For instance, the ither day a
customer o' oors made a mistake in peyin'
an account; instead o' gi'en' three thoosan'
he owned me an' ma partner he gied me
four. "Well, whit dae ye think I did?"
"Paid it back," suggested his heir tim
idiy. "Hootsl havers," said Bullion, peevishly:
"but I'll tell ye whit I did," he continued,
in a self-satisfied tone; "ye ken I micht hae
kept the haill extra thoosan' to masel'; but
no, I gave five hu'nner o't to ma partner."

New Xobk, August 9. P. C. Mac
Court, of Deputy Collector Gano's liqui
dating division in the Custom House, said
to-day that he was from theNorth of Ireland,
where they never are at peace unless they're
in a fight. Mr. MacCourt had received a
letter from Secretary Windom, dismissing
him from the service from August 15. He
was appointed a messenger in 1885, and as
signed to the Internal Revenue Bureau.
Two years later he passed a civil service ex
amination as a clerk, and last October he
was transferred to the 'New York Custom
Mr. MacCourt sayshe was Rosa D'Erina's
guardian and manager, and is the friend ot
Mrs. Parnell. He objects to his summary
dismissal. He sent this letter to Secretary
Windom, at Washington.
"I have the honor to acknowledge re
ceipt of your favor of the 3d inst., only re
ceived this morning, and in which you in
form me that my services as clerk in class
E in the office of the Auditor of the Treas
ury for the Po3toffice Department, will not
be required from and after the 15th inst. I
protest against this action ft yours, as at
ILLEGAL AND UNJUST,
because I am under the protection of the
civil service law, of which your action is, in
my opinion, and I think that of the public,
a flagrant violation and unjust, because for
the last four years I have been a faithful
and diligent employe of the Treasury De
partment, earning from my chiefs the
highest encomiums. Three of these years I
did clerical duty for $70 a month, many
among my Republican friends doing similar
duty receiving double the salary under the
protection of a Democratic administration.
If I am to be a victim because of my Demo
cratic principles, then sir, allow me to in
form you that the hand that writes this will
not fail to make a public example of those
sworn to uphold the law, whose sacred
majesty is violated in my humble person."
Mr. Maccourt says that he does not mean
to be understood that he intends to slug
anybody when he says "the hand that writes
this will not fail to
MAKE A PUBLIC EXAMPLE
of those sworn to uphold the law, whose
sacred majesty is violated in my humble
person." Mr. MacCourt writes books with
his hand, and through tiicm he will get
even if his request is not heeded. He also
sent this letter to the President at Bar Har
bor: Mr. President As an Irish-American
citizen, a race to whom you owe your elec
tion in this city and State, I appeal to you,
as the executive of the nation, to protect me
under the civil service law, from arbitrary
dismissal by yourBecretary of-the Treasury.
To-day Mr. Windom sent me a printed
form, dismissing me from the Treasury De
partment, I being classified under the civil
service, ann. therefore, I submit, not to be
dismissed without cause. I have been four
years in the service of the United States
Government, two of those years doing cleri
cal work at $70 per month in the assessment
division of the Internal Revenue Depart
ment, for whien my Republican friends
doing clerical work received a double sal
ary. In this office there were 26 clerks, I
ONLT DEMOCRATIC APPOINTEE,
and during the two years not one of those
Republican appointees was removed under
Mr. Cleveland's administration. I there

head executive of the Government, to pro
tect me in my rights, and to request your
Secretary to have me placed on the roll of
this custom house, where I have been in the
liquidating division for the last nine
months, and refer to my record as to how I
hane discharged my duty."
Neither Mr. McClelland, Acting Col
lector, nor Mr. Hunt, Private Secretary,
knew of Mr. MacCourt's removal. The
awful deed was done in Washington.
A SATISFIED SUCKER.
He Preferred Living- In the Had to Sizzling

New York Herald. 1
"Why don't you cultivate a little style?"
asked a Trout of a Sucker whom he hap
pened to meet. "Why do you insist on liv
ing in this mud hole and never visit the
clear, cold springs? Limber up your body
and hire somebody to get a section of a rain
bow and sprinkle it over you. I would not
live like you for anything, grubbing away'
all the time for a meal in the mud. Flies
form a delicious diet. Just look at that
beauty there which has just dropped on the
water. Just watch me take him and then
envy the life of a Trout."
Saying this, the Trout made a dash for the
fly and seized it But the fly had buried in
it a steel hook, and on the hook was a line,
and on the line a rod, and an angler held
the rod. The Trout soon disappeared from
the water, and the next noise he made was
when he was sizzling over a fire.
"It may be nice enough to be a Trout."
philosophized the Sucker, "bnt I would
rather be a poor, despised Sucker, with no
rainbow attachments, in a mud hole than a
proud Trout in a frying pan."

Mr. Charles A. Hendrickson and Miss
Anna Hildebrand were the names of two
passengers on the steamer Katie Stockdale,
from up the river. Both were from Alle
gheny City, Pa. They are young people,
handsome, cultured and apparently pos
sessed of wealth.
Although in each other's society a great
deal of the time on the trip, there was noth
ing about their actions that excited in the
steamer's officers the slightest suspicion that
the couple were journeying toward Aber-
?.in with matrimonial intentions. But SO
it-w!m- Thevhftd heard of the fame of
'Squire Beasley, and were resolved that
onlv he should make them man and wife.
It was still an hour before daybreak

ben previouslv instructed and properly
"tipped,"' awoke the young couple and
gtri ded their footsteps to the side of the ves

the Ohio shore. On the bank of the river

PAINTING THE TOWfi RED.
Orlsil of a Phrase Which Soon Came Into
"Pi lintingihe town red," meaning to see
the eights or have a lively and convivial
time i yhile seeing a to wn, had its origin with
athca.trical advance agent. He went to a
town, found fiis bills had not reached there,
and h. id only a short time to get new ones.
The oi lly printing omce there had Ted ink
only with which to print them. He had to
promise the printers and bill posters to treat
then i -to get his work out after working
boors. -By these means he soon had the
town in a blaze of red, making a conflagra
tion of posters, and he and the printers and
bill -posters became hilariously drunk over
the affair. The next morning the people
were astonished at the display of red post
ers. Tlie pacer wrote it up and the story spread
and became celebrated. The agent in tell
ing it said: "I took those fellows out and
got them drunk, and we painted the town
red. " Since then the phrase has become
gem sral. It is not elegant, but it is forcible
and has enough meaning in it, as drinking
has a tendency to turn thincs red, to stay.
It n ill become permanent.

These have been the President's only offi

Dispatches and important letters are sent
on from Washington, though, and a few
letters addressed to the President here have
been received, making his mail consist of
perhaps a dozen letters. To these his pri

Callers upon the President were quite
numerous, though almost entirely consist

national affairs were a tabooed subject.
Among them were Hon. John B. Thomas,
of Illinois; Baron Bosen, the Bussian Min

These visitors came at different hours in the
day, but the President devoted much of his
time to resting.
He had slept more hours in the previous
night than in any night in three months, he
said, and the result was that he felt much
refreshed. His first step out of the cottage

A MYSTERY IN A TOMB.
A Wonderful While Tine ThiU Suddenly
Changed Into Ashes.
AngnitatGa.) Chronicle. 1
For some vears there were no deaths and
the silence oftneTtomb was unbroken, save
for the visits of loved ones who knelt with
out and offered a prayer for the dead or paid
loving tribute to their virtues. 'At last
death came once more. The good old grand
mother bowed to the will of time and dear
ones gathered to pay their last respects.
The solemn procession wound its slow way
to the cemetery. ,
The door of the vault moved heavily on
its hinges as it swung back to receive its
dead. A flood -of golden sunlight filled
tbe tomb, dispelling the gloom and reveal
ing a strange sight. There, creeping along
the walls and over the coffins, was a white
vine. Pure and pearly it stood out in bold
relief against the dark background and
glistened in the sunlight. There was no
mistaking the resemblance. It was almost
a perfect urn.
But the wonder did not stop here. Curl
ing further on.it formed a letter I), the
family initial. Astonishment ceased not
here. It was a triple mystery, and the cli
max was' yet to be reached. The minister
offered up the prayer: "Ashes to ashes and
dust to dust," Those who were looking at
the white vine-taw it tremble, then tit shook
and fell- in fragments, scattering over the
coffins of the cjead.

Nashville, August 9. The Mormon
trouble in "Wilson county has been settled
temporarily by the expulsion of one of the
most active of the proselyting elders.
The excitement, however, has by no means
subsided, and the remaining elders
are threatened with coats of tar and
feathers if they, too, do not clear out.
The elder who was driven from the county
delivered an exordium Sunday. He told his
sympathizers that the Mormons owned the
country: that they were preparing to take
it by force.and that the church was organiz
ing an army for that purpose and to punish
scoffers and non-believers with death. Said
"The blood of Joseph Smith must be J
avenged, and God commands us to over
throw this Government for its oppression of
the Saints. The greet wine press of his
wrath has not yet been trodden. We are to
tread it. and tread, it we will until we have

the excitement created in the Mormon com

to Bev. John Barrett. The latter repeated
them in the course of his sermon the same
night, and read a letter from a lady in Ken
tucky, who had joined the Mormon Cnurch,
gone to Utah, become disgusted with the
practices of the sect, apostatized and re
turned to her home. She denounced Mor

and the priests and many of the laymen as a
set of scoundrels.

An Exponnder and Defender of Mormon
Dietrlnea la Canada.

Ottawa, August 9. Mr. A. Maitland
Stenhouse, the British Columbian Legisla
tor, who has resigned his seat in the Assem
bly to join the Mormon colony, at Leth
bridge, Northwest Territory, and comes for
ward as the champion of polygamy, and u
an exponent and defender of the Mormon
doctrines, will contest that constituency at
the coming general elections for the Domin
He says that polygamy will soon become
one of the institutions of the territories, and
believes that if properlv represented in Par
liament, many of the restrictions which
now make polygamy illegal will be with
drawn, and the prejudices which now exist
against the sect overcome. He says that only
among the Latter-Day Saints are the rights
of women fully recognized and admitted.
His plan for reforming the marriage laws of
tbe Dominion, he says, is the substitution
of polygamy lor monogamy. He lauds the
intelligence and industry of the Mormon,
and say: tbat if the Mormon, like the
Chinese, must go, monogamv, with its foul
following of betrayals and worse will go
also, and that very early, in the country.
Notwithstanding the efforts of the Gov
ernment to prevent it, reports reaching here
from the Northwest say, thatlhe Mormons
are not waiting for the Stenhouse legisla
tion, but are openly practicing polygamy.
