THE KANSAS CITY JOURNAL, FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1895.
SAVED BY HISLAWYER'S ZEAL,
Lambert, the Nor Jersey Murderer llninlut
t May ii the lots! Moment.
iMmdcn, N. J .Ian. 3. An hour before
the lime ret for the execution of Iomlcrt
In the county Jail thin morning n May of
proceedings grouted by Judge Shims In
Washington Until March t was served on
Sheriff IMrrcit. At Hint time u score of
witnesses had assembled In tlio execution
room. Notice of (lie May wns. glvfti Lam
bert by his attorney, Lawyer Semple. The
comlemncil mini fell to the ttoor In a faint,
from which ho recovered In n few inlntite!,
lie fell into a second fnlnt, In which he
remained for nearly live minutes. On be
ing revived he shouted, "tltory to llod,"
nnd then fell on the neck of his coun"l
and kissed hlln.
laimbert's mind lin been temporarily
turned bv his good fortune. Since learn
ing thnt he lias two months more to live
he has not been able to talk Intelligently
Rhouts and sings at turn, t'ounty Phft
flan Jones has hint under treatment.
After leaving the Jail Lawyer temple
went to Lambert's home, where hl mother
was nwultlng the news of her son's .xecu
tlort. th" laer iif Inmly promising to
come to her Immediately lifter It laid taken
plarc. When he entered she cried! "I he
dead yef.' I thought he would not be
linnged until 10 oVIoek,"
When told of the stny she fell tike n
log on the tloor. A physician had to be
called to restore roncloiisn"ss, She went
nt once to the Jail with the lawyer and
the mother and son were permitted to have
thtlr meeting alone. The scene was nf
fectlnK. Mrs, Lambert refused to leac her
pon's cell and the was allowed to remain
Lawj.r Somple's efforts to rae his
client's lite have been extraordinary. He
claims that l.imbert Is locally dead. The
date first set for his execution was De
ember 13. Lawyer S-niplo asked for a re
prieve, which the novel nor at lltst re
fused on the ground that he had no power
In the ease, as the thirty days' limit from
the time of his conviction had expired.
Jtwyer Semple claimed that comletlon
elated from the time of sentence and trot
from the time of the rendering of the
verdict. Tin- matter was referred
to the attorney Rent rat and he took the
fame view of the rase as sold by Semple.
The reprieve was then granted. After
December 13, the day on whb h Lambert
was to be executed, had passed, Lawyer
Semple took the opposite ground that con
viction did not date from sentence, but
from the time of the rendering of the ver
dict. As the day set for the execution had
passed, Lambert was legally dead.
He exhausted every means provided In
New Jersey to save his client on the tech
nicality n fortnight ago and then appealed
to the federal courts, ralMng the same
point which had been dismissed In the New
Jersey courts. He went before Judge Dal
las In Philadelphia yesterday, but was re
fused the application for a writ, lie next
went to Washington and called ori Justice
Bhlras, of the supreme court, lie was re
ferred tiack to Judge Dallas, lie remained
In Washington, however, and shortly be
fore 12 o'clock succeeded In having the
Flay granted. lie took a midnight train
nnil reached here early this morning, but
did not serve the writ on the sheriff until
9:30 this morning.
HOT TIMES IN THE SOBRANJE.
1'remler StllniT Call M. l)nc(T a I.lar and
a (ireat Uproar follows.
Vienna, Jan. 3. Theie Is considerable
comment here legardlng the stormy and al
most unprecedented scene which took pines
in the sobrunje. or national assembly, nt
Sophia, on Friday night Int, December -",
nnd early Saturday morning. During the
debate on the credit of 50.ij09.000 francs
usked for by the government for the pur
pose of suppressing brigandage. M. Dos
seff. the opposition leader, declared that
brigandage no longer existed in Ilulgarla
and that the premier, M. Stlloff, asked for
this money for the purpose of establishing
a system of political espionage. An uproar
followed, the supporters of the government
strongly denouncing the assertion of the
opposition leader and M. Dosxefl replying
with strong expressions reflecting upon
the ministers. This caused Stllotf to ex
claim: "You're a liar and a slanderer.'
This served to bring matters to a most in
terna pitch of excitement. All the deputies
-prang to their feet and hurled insults at
each other, while M. Dosseff continued his
attack upon the government. Finally the
president of the sobranje. Dr. Tlieodoroff,
announced St. Dot-sett's expulsion from the
chamber for the remainder of the Session
and directed the quae-iois to remove him
from the precincts of the house. The Lib
erals replied to this order with a storm of
hisses, and, with the members of the op
position grouped nboui him, M. Dosseif
--truck at the quaestors nnd bent them off,
but not until some of the deputies hml
During this exciting scene the ministers
withdrew and left the Liberals In posses
fclon of the house.
After an hour's Interval the Mlting was
resumed at midnight. The opposition pro
tested against the action of the govern
ment, dtvl.irlng that the scene was caused
by M Stiloff calling M. Dosseif a liar and
a slanderer, ami later the opposition left
the house in u body, in oixler, as they
claimed, to avoid witnessing further nets
of Injustice to the courftry and its repre
sentatives. During tlie absence of the opposition dep.
titles the government dlscusse., and adopted
the pollihal amnesty bill, Including the
propositions to grant amnesty to Zankoff
nnd Karaveloff. The measure ts regarded
(is sealing thu Itiisslo-Ilulgarla rappro.tch
ment. An exciting debate had been expected
upon this bill,
After the measure had been adopted the
opposition returned to the sobranje and this
most exciting all-night sitting was con
cluded. TOPEKA'S BIGDAM SCHEME.

SHARP ADVANCE IN WHEAL

Corn nnd Oat Were Firm, but Wllhont

Willi (lood Adtsncei.
Chicago, Jnn. 3. livcrythliiR opened
weak In the speculative markets to-day,
nnd closed strong ns regards wheal, firm
o to corn nnd oats nnd strong for pro
visions. Whent closed with a net gain of
Mc,, corn and onts show no change and
provisions nro higher. A demand for
cash whent and the melting away
of the visible supply of the world gav
wheat, Its upward direction. Despite plenty
of bullish news, the bears were winners
In the fight nt the opening of the wheat
market. Chicago received only forty
eight cars Instead of eighty rstlmated.
Minneapolis rcKrtcd receipts of 111 Cars
nnd Dulilth 6., or 176 cars together, com
pared with 216 on Thursday of last week
nnd 360 on the corresponding day of last
year. The total of the primary market
receipts was 230,0o0 bushels, against 3S3
0t bushels n week ago atitt 4.00,000 bushels
on the corresponding day of last year.
Foreign markets were quoted fairly steady,
London quoted cargoes of Argentine fronj
3d to 4t4d per quarter higher. Liverpool
wns dull and easier for red American and
Paris 10 centimes higher for wheat nnd
Hour, The export clearances from tho
Atlantic ports were liberal, particularly
of Hour: 463,000 bushels were the equlx'a
lent of the shipments In hour nnd whent
combined. The market began to stiffen tiQ
gradually after the tlrst few minutes of
the session, but not until Ilradstrect's vis
ible supply statement wns received did
tho advance proceed with any degree of
spirit. The publication of a decrease of
2,463,0iXI bushels 111 the world's visible sup
ply stirred up the discouraged bulls and
caused May whent to rise from 57?i to
B'OifiS.-K. Previous to that the price had
been playing wearily between 57',i and
S7?S157!sc. Some sales near the opening
were made nt 57!iiIi57l,SC. .Late cublegroms
quoted French markets closing strong,
with decidedly bullish tendency, owing to
very light farmers' deliveries. May closed
nt 57?.c, helped by reports of very liberal
Corn, wns dull and heavy nnd nppearcd
to be only saved from a smart decline by
the llrmness of wheat. May opened at
from 47!Jc down to 47ic, Improved to 475e,
dropped back again to 47Jic and at tho
close wns at 47?ic bid.
Oats met a fair sale and was active dur
ing the greater part of tho day. The In
fluence of a weaker corn market was for
ward In causing the slight heaviness no
ticeable. May started at 31?c, sold at
31Vic, oft to 31!,c and at noon was selling
at 31t.li731?;iC, closing at the latter price.
Provisions opened quite weak, due to
the realization of yesterday's estimate of
41,000 hogs as the run for to-day. At the
close the early loss was all recovered.
Compared with yesterday's closings pork
rested with u gain of 7V5c, lard i'ia and
ribs 5c. Tho reaction was due to rather
liberal buying and sympathy with the
