London, Juno 1.?[Special]?What
will probably provo tho moat exciting
trial of tho season, if not of recent
years, was begun to day boforo Lord
Chief Justico Coleridge and a special
jury, boing tho judicial inquiry into tho
notorious baccarat case, in which Sir
Wm. Cordon Cummings is tho plaintiff
and tho Princo of Wales tho most inter?
esting, if not tho chief witness.
Tho court-room was crowded, and tho
audience comprised tho flower of Lon?
don society, representing all circles and
including as many leaders in profes?
sional life as could possibly manago to
getaway from their engrossing occupa?
tions. The Prince of Wales entered the
room shortly after 11 o'clock, accom?
panied by that veteran in serial func?
tions, Sir Francis Knollis. Tin1 jury
having been sworn, the lord chief jus?
tico took his scat and a brief discussion
followed regarding tho examination of
the Prince of Wales, the avowed object
being to oorue to some understanding
that would curtail tho attendance of his
royal highness to as brief a period as
Sir Edward Clarke, solicitor general,
who conducted the case for tho plaintiff,
in his opening said tho question was:
"Did Sir Gordon Cummings cheat at
cards or not'.'-' Tho question was a
serious one, involving tho honor of a
man with a distinguished military
record. Ho explained how the game of
baccarat was played, adding that the
hank at Trandry Croft,where tho games
took place, was limited to t-MJO, and
when that was lost the gamo was at an
It would bo his duty to put tho Prince
of Wales -and General Owen Williams
in the witness-box, and they would sat?
isfy tie jury that they saw nothing
wrong in Sir Gordon's play. It was his
system to double bis stakes, if lie lost,
until bo recovered his losses. Ho would
then revert to his original stake. Hac
carat was played for twooveniDgs at
Trandry Croft, but it was not until the
third day that any suspicions wore
An/i then tho plaintiif gavo Lord Cov?
entry an absolute and unqualified denial
of the charge.
Late on Wednesday evening Sir Gor?
don was allowed to seo tho Prince of
Wales in tho presence of Lord Coventry
and I icneral Williams, when bo again
repeated a positive denial. In reply to
a question by Sir Chas. Russell, Sir Ed?
ward said that he did not propose to call
Lord Iiartington, as in his opinion the
testimony of General Williams would be
su file lent.
The solicitor general then read the
famous .agreement signed by Sir Gor?
don in which he solemnly undertook to
never play cards again as long as he
lived. He added that it might como out
in thocourso of tho trial that the plain
tiir bad made a greatmistako in affixing
the Signa tu ro but that ho was over per?
suaded by such old frinds as General
Williams and Lord Coventry. After an
impassioned appeal for his client Sir
Edward called the plaintiff. Sir Gordon
Cummings, who gavo his version of
what occurred on the three evenings In
At tho end of the game on Wednes?
day evening the Prince of Wales said
laughingly, "How come you to win so
much money?" to which Sir Gordon re?
plied, "How could I help winning with
such tabloaux," calling tho Prince's at?
tention to tho witness tableaux. Tho
following evening Lord Coventry and
General Williams came to him and said
that something very disagreeable had
occurred and that some people staving
in thoisonse had objected to Sir Gordons
method of playing baccarat.
Lord Coventry then explained that
he was accused of resorting to foul
play. Tho witness characterized the
charge as a "foul, abominable false?
hood,'' and asked his informers, who
wore two of his oldest friends, for
advico, placing himself entirely in
Lord Coventry asked witness to leave
them alone for a few moments. On his
re-entering tho room ho was told that
there was but one way to avoid the
horrible scandal and that was to sign
the agreement not to play again. Wit?
ness pointed out that this was a virtual
admission of guilt. His friends admit?
ted this, hut still advised him to sign,
which bo finally did.
Kelucantly, Sir Gordon then in a reply
to a question by tho solicitor general
formally and emphatically denied the
charge. The cross-examination of tho
plaintiff was then commenced by Sir
Chas. Russell, leading council for tho
defendants. The court then adjourned
after bearing further testimony for the
plaintiff. Tho Princo of Wales remain?
ed throughout the entiro session.

Contrary to expectations the trial of tho
accused and suspended ministers was
not commenced at this morning's ses?
sion of the Reformed Presbyterian
synod. *This fact, however, did not pre
! vent the synod once more engaging in a
wrangle, that, if possible, surpassed in
I violence of language and action the wild
scenes enacted during tho past week.
I Tho church was crowded to its limit
during the early hours of tho session.
I Tho mero mention of the trouble
creating letter read by Dr. McAllister
last week was again tho cause of all tho
disturbance. Ministers noted for their
dignity and spirit of Christianity, went
at each other in most scathing lan?
guage and were not a bit backward in
characterizing each other as per vor tors
of the truth. During the debate the vast
audience was worked up to a state of
tho highest excitement. The moderator
was powerless to control tho warring
clergymen and bis appeals and com?
mands went for naught.
A motion to grant Dr. McAllister's
request resulted in a split, and tho
matter was laid on tho table it was
during the discussion of this motion
that tho wild scenes wero enacted.
The report of tho disciplinarians was
submitted and sustained the action of
tho Pittsburg Presbytery in having sus?
pended the ministers at the recent
trial. Tho committee recommended
that the suspended ministers and
those against whom Dr. McAllister bad
preferred charges should be granted a
full and impartial hearing.
