Milwaokek, Wis., April 11. Yesterday
two months ago tho Newhall Iloitso binned
to tho ground, ono liundre 1 people losing
their lives, and yesterday the trial of
George Schcller, charged with totting the
hotel on fire, began in the Municipal Court,
Judgo Mallory piesiding. Schcller, the
owner of tho hotel bar, and chief clerk of
the hotel for eight yenrs past, was arrested
a few days nfter tho tire on tho grave
charge for which he is held, and in the
courso of time was regularly indicted by
tho grand jury. The former high
standing of tho accused, who came to
tliis city a dozen years ago from
Detroit, where he is well conneced,
has mudo unusually the awful
crime laid at Solicitor's door, lie has considerable
property and a host of friends,
and will bo ably tl c feinted. The geneial
opinion is that he will not be found guilty.
Over one huudiod witnesses havo been
subpoenaed, and the trial will probably last
a week or longer. District ttornoy Clark
appeared tor the pioi cation, assisted by
P. J. Sonters, when the caso was called.
The defense is conducted by JelF C.
McICcnny and W. II. Kl.hitts. well-known
members of tho local bar. An iuinience
oiowd was present. Schcller, his wife,
and nttovic.s wcie in tho room
w lien tlio case was called. Solieller looks
iciuirkubly well, and his confinement has
blenched and fattened him ivonderfiillv.
At 11 o'clock Seliellcr. in charge of a Deputy
Sheriff, appeared in court, seeming
very cheerful, lie said that ho telt confident
of acquittal. When arraigned he
pleaded not guilty, and the cull of juiors
was con menced. A special enire was issued.
Tne outline of ihe prosecution is as
I'oIIoVh: To establish a motive for the
oritur, they will attempt to provo that
Seliellcr s business ntlaiis hud boo uuo s0

I'hcy will nl 40 try to show that

were itiMiied for much more than
th'ir actual value. Tims money getting

lotol until o'-ill o'c'ock. when ho left a
nuplo of friends on Bi midway and stinted
ill' in tho direction nf tho hotel, which
.lushed into flames bull' an hour later.' An
etlort will bo madu to disprove the statement
that was in bed when the
'iro broke out, by testimony to the fact that
Irs. Solieller searched for her husband
luring the progicss of the conflagration,
and c (esscd fears for his Milety, saying
that lie had not been at homo at all during
the entiio night. It is hinted
that somo now and quite sensational
lostimoiiy will bo introduced by tho
testimony caculated to prove beyond
any question that Solieller was in the si-loon
only n very few minutes bofoie t lie
fire, or, rather, that some one wus in tho saloon
at tho timo indicated, and that -onto
one must have seen Schcller, as ho always
carried a koy that would unlock tho saloon
door. Tho attorneys for tho defense
scorned to have outlined no particular
com so to be pursued during the trial. They
liavB n. fow witnesses of their own. to bo
used mainly in rebuttal, but will rely upou
a failure or tuo prosecution to utrccuy connect
Scheller with tho incendiarism lor an
acquittal. They know as littlo about the
nature of tho testimony to bo introduced
as tho general publio, 'and are fully us
much at sea as tho rest of the community.

London, April 11. Tho Times to-day
ciys thero was a piactioal reason for the
haste in which tho bill in legard to the explosives
was p.issctl through Parliament
yesterday, and explains by stating that
somo members of the dynamite paitjfare
believed to be on sto'imcts now coming
from America. A royal inojs:igo giving assent
to tho bill was read in Puiltameut this
Dun lin, April 11. The police hive just
como into possession of information that
a man has arrived in Dublin who is supposed
to be an emissary of the dynamite
party, nnd whose mission is titc destruction
of property. All tho hotels are being
watched with tho lmpo of aira?ting him.
Thu Coldstream Guards have bien plated

inspectel the underground p'tssiige
of th- l'arliameat btiildiugs.aud have beti
granted permits to enter not only that
building but Jlidc.iu Hall at nil hours, day
and night. Although the fact is not
generally known, eoushlerub'e uneasiness
is m inifestcd among the uicmbcis. The
night-watch furnished by the Dominion
police has been doubled, and every precaution
has been taken to pi event the possibility
of evil-disposed persons cicating
iniible. Detective Hotlgins had an

o some suspicious ciiciuistanccs which
took place at Itideau Hall lcceutly. It is

1'aiiis, April 11. Tho temporary conation
of jiolitieal excitement, while it Iris
(initially rcassiiicd tho bourgeon, does
not silence Mine. Paul Mincke, and does
not please M. lleuii Hochefort. Tho
is still printed at Marseilles, and.
although tlteio havo been no riots, she
blithely nnnounces that the social revolution
Is at baud. She accounts for tho going
by of tlie day set for tho last entente
without any disturbance by saying
that thero was no visible result to bo expected
from a lising nt that time, except a
massacre of Communists, her meaning being
evidently that the Revolutionists were
not quito ready to precipitate an outbreak.
M. Itochcfort, in the Intrausigcaut, boldly
compares M. Jules Ferry to M. Gambella,
and accuses him of (-coking to plot tor tho
Presidency of the Republic. Ho declares
that tho journey to Araclion was full of
meaning, nnd that M. Ferry is now feeling
tho pulso of tho piovinces. It is evident
theiefoic, that M.ltochefort will hunt down
tho new Cabinet with tho samo reckless
hatred which impelled him to stab each
member of tho Gambctta Ministry, and.
unfortunately for tho hopes of those who
seek to establish a stable government in
France, this propaganda succeeds. The
unscrupulous'writer may be descried nnd
discredited, but the circulation of his paper
is tremendous, especially among tho
working classes. Fivo other daily organs
preach extreme doctrines of collectivism

Another Awful Chapter In
BoT(iN, April 11. Governor Butler was
pre?nt at the Tcwksbury Alms-house investigation
yesterday. Joseph A. Chase
testified that ho had worked for"
Miss Manning, nnd with her knowledge
hid taken bodies to the Harvard Medical
Sclu.ol by order of the Maishul.
The Governor then introduced the

W.isin.vno.v, April 11. Tho Ciitic publishes
a sensational rumor relating to How-gate.
It has been impossible to procuro
anything further than tho ono story, and
its truth is doubted, but here it is:
"Captain llowgate, tho dofaulting signal
officer, is now in Washington. At 2 o'clock
this afternoon ho v;h sccn to alight
trom a coupo and hurriedly enter a residence
iu the uoi thu ostein portion
of tho city. Tho hack wus tho
of a priv.ito citizen, and one of
llowgnto's well-known fiiends. Hu remained
about t went y minutes, and win
then diivcu cast on P stieet. Ho wus seen
by a member of tho Signal Servico w ho
served under hint and who it- well acquainted
with him. Tho latter attempted to
spc.ik to Howgate, but was fiiistiatcd by
tho gentleman who accompanied him. Tne
vehicle was driven by an elderly
Irishman hi full livery. Tho party who
accompanied Howgato woro a tull
beard, n silk hat, and was beyond
tho moridinu of life iu ago
The paity who recognized Howgato did
bo from his peculiar features about the eve-and
mouth. Tho gentleman who recogiiiod
llowgate remarked to the Critic that the
fact that ho sprang quickly into tho coupe
when tho word " llowgate'' wus uttered is
prima facie ovidenco that his convictions of
true recognition were concet. The informant
also stated that ho felt positivo iu his
mind that ho knew the gentleman who accompanied
Howgato, but that ho is too
prominently known hero to be mimed unless
his eyesight was confirmod more fully ;
that ho was ono of tho defaulter's heaviest
Dynninite l'lcnd In Washington.
Washington, April 11. British Minister
Wost was to-day asked a9 to tho truth
of tho story which was in circulation,
that Zell Hoover, of this olty, had reportod
to him a plot to blow up tho legation with
dynamite, and that Hoover had been paid
$300. Mr. West stated that all tho truth
that thero was iu tho story was that Hoover
did call upon him and direct his attention
to a certain matter, but it was not a plot to
blow up the legation with dynamite, or anything
of tho kind, Ho investigated the
mattor nnd found it to bo fallacious. He
did not pay Hoover any money, but merely
heard what bo had to say, investigated it,
and found it to bo untruo.

Wasiiixuton, April 11. A statement of
the United States bonds hold by tho Treasurer
to secure National Bonk circulation,
just published here, shows that ncnrly all
tho thiee per cents, recently issued aio
held by banks for that purpose, and that
of the 5357,000,000 of bonds held for this
purposo, about $200,0i)0,')00 are throo pir
cents. This is somewhat interesting in
itself, but becomes much moio so when it
is considered that thoso threo per cen'.

fhci and sixes) nic out of tho vvuy. Tlavc
three-and-a-half per cent, bonds will n t
last longer than about the end of tho present
fiscal year, and then comes tho attack
on the thicopcr cents.
At the late thu bonds have been called in
during Senator Folgor s lorm tbeso would
not last two yean, and by the end of 1881
one-half the National Banks would find
thoir jinaucial foundation gone. Thero will
bo nothing left with which they may continue
to furnish sccinity for their circulation
save the four and four-and-a-half per
'cent, bonds. When it is considered that
tlie former arc at a premium of 20 per cent,
aid the latter of 1 1 per cent., it will be seen
that there will bo great hts tnnoy on tho
part of many to invest iu tliem for
securities. How inpidly thco
remaining tlttce per cents, will bo paid oil,
since asi winter's redact hm in the revenue
can not of cjurso be told, but they must
soon begin to melt avvav. When they begin
to go tho four nnd four-and-a-half pir
cents will probably go higher, and when
your national banker finds that for every
$4 ho invests in bonds ho enn only issue
thiee in curieucy, and that lor every $-'
so invested ho will only get four back
