theieforc certain the matter must be fought
out on the iloor of the convention. The
signal for ihc onslaught Avill be the nomi
nation of Alex Sullivan for the presidency,
and it is understood that it Aill be done in
order to gie the latter gentleman an oppor

Ireland's national demand.
We are perfectly Avilliug to see them ac
cept such bills as that of Gladstone's as a
settlement on account, but that must not be
accepted as closing the transaction. "We
sec no wisdom in it; it loAvers the tone of
the Irish cause: it low crs thespirit of the

Boston, Mass., Aug. 17. The fact that
AA'illiam Gray Jr., tieasurcr of the Atlantic
and Indian oi chard mills corporation, is a
defaulter to an enormous amount, created
great excitemens here. It h believed his
stealings will amount to over half a million
dollar-."". Gray Avas deposed from the treas
urership several days ago. The assets of
the two corporations are more than $4.
000.000, and it is not believed that the 2ol
vencv of either is impaired. The capital
of the Atlantic mills is $1,000,000 and its
assets $2,000,000. The capital of the In
dian Orchard mill is 000,000 and assets
are neatly three times that sum. Gray had
been treasurer of the former for ten j-ears,
and of the latter eight, and had occupied
the fonnost position hi business and social
circles. He lived magnificently, and Avas
regarded as very Avealthy.' He owns a line
cutter A-acht, and has be'en commodore of
the Do'rchester Yacht club for several years.
He is about fifty year old and ha a Avife
and two sons.
The managing directors of the Atlantic
mill are still engaged upon the books of the
corporation in i elation to the shortage -.f
AYm. Gray, Jr., late treasuier. but the
exact amount of his defalcation cannot be
learned with certainty; it is believed it Avill
not exceed 00,000. "

ripple of excitement has been caused by
Judge Sinclair lining Dr. J. Y. Young, :
prominent physician 25 and sentencing
him to ten days in jail for contempt.
Young has antagonized the committee of
Tri-State Veterans :issociation regarding
the approaching re-uuion hen.1. Extensive
advertising has" been done by the commit
tee, and Young has distributed throughout
Northern Ohio and Indiana, dodgers claim
ing, as an official of tlie association, that
there will be no reunion, and that the prom
inent generals nnd others advertised to be
in attendance. a ould not come. The com
mittee, through the superior court, had a
restraining order issued, which Avas ignored
by Young, and this caused the line and sen
tence. The committee also circulated
posters advertising Young as a
forger, convict and fraitd, for Avhich Young
hascommeuccd suit for criminal libel.

long-haired man from Texas, was in charge
of the preparations, and A-ith his corps of
colonels, majors and captains, discussed the
best mode of procedure. After Avasting a
pad or two of Western Union Telegraph
blanks they decided on the following mes
sage to Governor Ireland:

THE LAST DAY
Of the Anarchist Trial but One The
.Jury Calls for a Hast.
Chicago, Aug. 17. This is the fifth day
of the arguments in the anarchists tnal.and
Captain Black, the leading counsel for the
defense, began the closing plea for the
misoners. Captain Black began his argu
ment soon after the jury was seated, by
May it please your honor, and gentle
men of the jury: On the morning of May

Avhat happened at Ilaymaiket. Fear is the
mother of cruelty, and perhaps that Avill
account in some "measure lor the bitterness
Awth which the state prosecuted "the ease.
The serious question which confronts
us, however, is to Avhat extent you gentle
men in your deliberations may be
influenced "by passion or prejudice.
On the the night of May 4th a dynamite
bomb Avas thrown on the Haymarkct in
this city and exploded. It caused a ide

Captain Black reiterated that-dynamite o
far as the origin and manufacture of it is
concerned had no connection at ail Avith
the doctrines of socialism, and he laid doAvn
this to be a rule of law. The jury should
follow closel the cidence in their delib

the bomb Avas thrown, avIio did the
deed, and must show that thes, di

the guilt man. He then proceeded
to enlighten the jury that the state
mistook" its functions altogether. Tin
speaker said that the counsel forthe state
were Avrong when one of them advised the
jury that upon them it Avas dcicudcnt to
maintain laAV and government because the
defendants a ere against the state. They
were revolutionists, it Avas said, but that
Avas not the truth. There could be no rev

Continuing, the counsel ga'.'e a -eientific
account of dynamite and experiments Avith
it as an agency of modern warfare, and
then declared "that dynamite Avas in the

"WAsniXGTOX, D. C, Aug. 17. The j
secretary of the interior drew warrants on
the treasury department for $7,7."52.4o0 on ,
account of quarterly payment of pensions, ,
and some time ago Acting Secretary Fair- j
child instructed Ir. Krites, chief of the!
division of aumdoned property, to canyl
into effect the nrovbious ot the act Ol con
gress authorizing the secretary of thc.trea-; forwanledto the
im- tn (l.lit-rr tn'tlio rirhtful oAA'ners certain i ommendation to
articles of jewelry, etc., captured by the
United States army during the civil Avar,
and denosited in the trcaMirv dep.trtment.
3Ir. Krites has accordingly prepared rules j
and regulations aaIucIi wilt govern tlie res
toration of all such article, and lia jut
concluded an examination of the deposits.
Thev are contained in iavo large boxes
and "consist of siher Avare, jewelry, por
traits, etc. One of the boxes contained
nearly 000 watches, gold, silver and bra,
and a number of jack knive iocket books,
letters, etc. These were mostly taken from
prisoners of war a1io died in hospitals
around Vashington, Caie Lookout and
Elmiraand AAere deposited in the treasury
by General Eetchum. Some1 of them,
him ever, belong to union soldiers who dienl
during the Avar near the places designated. !
The other box coutaiued a Jot of articles
captured bv General I lerman's troops m
Camden, South Carolina, in the early part
nf iM5."i Tlnv (insist of family nlate.
jewelry, etc, AAhich had K-en deposited in
a bank at Camden hy Jlcliae ana outer
we'althy re.-idents of " thai section. "When
the union army approached the town an ef
fort aa as made to transfer the articles to
a place of safety, but it
did not succeed as tlie troops came ujon
the scene Avhile the transfer av;l-. being
made. Manv of the principal articles be
longing to M"r. Melioc Avere restoreil to him
by a .special act of congress in lbSO. An
inventory lias leen made and it is thought
the articles can only lie identified by their
owners. They Avifl be restored upon appli
eation accompanied by s:tisfrctory evi
deuce of ownership. The two boxes refer
red to contain all property of the character
described hoav in the United States treas
ury except possibly the presentation swords
belonging to Gen.Twiggs and captured b
Gen. Butler in New Orleans-. It is an un
settled question as yet aa hether these sAords
can be lCstored under the provisions of the
act referred to above. All the other articles
mentioned Ahich have not been re
storeil by April next Avill be adver
tised and such as shall still
remain in the treasurer for one year from
that time Aill be sold at public auction.
It is expeeted that the formal exchange
of the copies of the extradition ticaty lc
twecn the United States and Japan Avill be
soon announced from Tokio and that its
promulgation by the two governments w ill
take place immediately thereafter. The
Japanese authorities are quiie entliusT.i&tic
over the consummation of this treaty but
not so mui h on account of its proNiotis
Avhith are similar in general terms to tho-e
of the existing treaty Jietween the United
States and Great Britain, :is becausr of the
fact that it constitutes a step in the progress
of that nation tow ard a position of equality
