San Francisco, May 20. A Mr.
Snyder of Tuscon this State is the
possessor of valuable mining property
at Mineral Creek. This fact becoming
known to a Mrs. Vail, she determined
to have some of the property
transferred to herself. To this end
iha formed Snyder's acquaintnince and
a close intimacy sprang up between
them. Then she set systematically to
poison him, after her influence had
become strong enough'ovcr her victim
to causo him to deed the claims
to her. Snyder's health began to fail,
and a trip to tho hot springs near
Camp Thomas was decided upon, with
the nope of being benefited. Mrs.
Vail accompanied him, also a man named
Vail, no relation to tho woman. I he
suspicions of Snyder's friends . were
aroused and he was communicated
with through the postmaster at Fort
Thomas. Snyder was found frothing
at the mouth, almost in convulsions
.and betraying all the symptoms of
been "poisoned. The sufferer was at
once conveyed to Camp Thomas and a
physician summoned, who pronounced
t he case one of arsenical poisoning. Mrs.
Vail and her accomplice were at once
arrested and lodged in jail. When accused
of the crime she went into hysterics
nnd tried to throw herself upon
and kiss Snyder. It is supposed tho
poison had been administered in small
doses since about the 1st of February.
After starting on the trip to the
springs, which was made in a wauon,
his only' companions being Mrs. Vail
nnd her accomplice, Snyder began to
si'ow rapidly -worse, tho poison boing
.uhiiinistered in heroic doses. The case
will be thoroughly investigated.

New York, May 20 Shortly after
the arrest in Dublin of the men charged
with the assassination ot Lord Cavendish
and Secretary Burke in Phconix
Park, tho English newspapers announced
with a flourish of trumpets
that the famous or notorious, as the
case may be" Number Ono " of tho
Irish Invincibles was Patrick Joseph
Percy Tynan, and that he was then
hiding and skulking in England. A
few days later they announced that ho
had put himself in communication with
the authorities, with a view to turning
informer on his dupes. Then it
was reported that ho was in France ;
and again rumor had it that two detectives
had. discovered that ho had
gone to Mexico, and that they wero to
start after him.
The truth of tho matter is that
Tynan, aided by tho fidelity and tact
ot his wife, eluded tho vigilance of
tho English detectives and authorities,
and came, to this country, where
he has been living ever since under
his own name; and, though ho has
not obtruded himself upon public notice,
he has neither hidden nor skulked.
His whereabouts have been known to
5uite a number of people: and if tho
JInglish Government has been as anxious
as it professed to be for his apprehension
the wonder is that none
of'its detectives have been able to find
Saturday, through his counsel, General
Roger A. Pryor, Tynan took a
stop which may prove a momentous
One, not only to himself, but may involve
complications between the
United States and Great Britain now
undreamedof. Friday night he had
a consultation with his counsel, in
which he announced that he was
tired of living under tho imputation
of hiding or skulking, nnd he requested
General Pryor to announce
to the attorney for the English Government
here that ho was willing to
answer any charge that might be preferred
against him before the authorities
of the United States. The General,
unwilling to expose him to the
hazard involved in such a communication
to the British Government, after
writing tho desired letter, hesitated
nnd. delayed sending it until he had
again consulted his client, who
answered that if tho only objection
to the communication was the peril to
himself, to send it at once. As this
was the only objection tho letter was
delivered, and tho British Government
was thus placed in authoritative
information of his whereabouts.
If the English Government accepts
his .challenge, ho will be taken before
United States Commissioner Osborne,
a gentleman who is said to have strong
Anglican leaning. The English Government
claims that Tynan was
Phienix Pork when the assassination
of Cavendish and Burko took
place, and that they were personally directed
by him. Of course their only
authority . is that of
and it will be interesting, should
his extradition bo demanded, to know
just how much weight such testimony
will have in a United States Court.
Even if Osbomo should decide to yield
Tynan up, tho President can interfere,
and just what he would do should such
an emergency arise, it w.ould bo hard
j to determine.

from 325,000,000 a year ago to

Important Action of Irish ICoprcscnt.
Nr.w York, May 20. A cable
from Dublin says: At a meeting
of the Parnell Tribute Committee the
following resolution was adopted:
" That wo deeply deplore the action
taken by the Sacred Congregation with
reference to tho movement; that wo
believe the arguments advanced in tho
1ope's circular are founded on
lisreprescntations, and not justly applicable
either to tho public life
and work of Parnell or to an act of
national gratitude to him on the part
of the Irish people, and that we are
determined to persevere in tho work
which wo have undertaken; and to
obtain, to tho utmost of our power, the
help of the people of Ireland and tho
race in offering Parnell an adequate
recognition of his labors and
services for the Irish cause."

New York, May 20. Alexander
Jefferson, the negro murderer under
sentence of death in Raymond "Street
Jail, Brooklyn, thinks it is fortunate
that two persons only were killed by
him. You see," ho said yesterday. " I
had, a pocket flask . which hold
about half a pint of liquor, and I
would havo it filled at a bar, and then
go outsido and drink it all at a gulp.
I kept on drinking in this way until I
becamo a maniac." Jefferson says
that if ho had an armful of daggers
ho would not commit suicide. Ho believes
that if ho had friends and money
tho ropo would never touch, his neck.
The Lord, ho says, is with him nnd has
saved his life to tho present time for a
purpose. Ho is now engaged in writing
the story of his life, as ho wishes
to toll young men how rum brought
him to the gallows.

has judgments for about a quarter of
this amount hanging over its every

not a happy ono. Friday, at a mooting
of the bondholders, it was resolved to
look thoroughly into tho ability of tho
city to pay and dotermino what proportion
of tho debt can bo paid. This is
moro sensiblo than to proceed by mandamus,
but tho proceedings merely put
off tho general sottling day, which
sooner or later must corao.
