The Next Lord Mayor of London
now London Is Governed Power ;
I tho Slnnlclpal Boards The Anclon.1
New YonK, Juno 12. Thcro nrrivod eti
the Scrvia last week, a hale and hearty
looking, English gentleman.
This was Mr. Charles Hadloy, who is at
present Alderman of tho Castlehaynard
ward, London, but who, on tho 20th of September
next, will becomo Lord Mnyor of
London. Interviewed by a reporter, ho
v furnished tho following interesting information
in regard to tho great corporation:
" Of course," said tho Alderman, with a
smile, in responso to a question, " wo' are
entitled I to boast of tho antiquity of our
Corporation. It is clalmod by somo that it
is a thousand years of ago. It has certainly
been eijiht hundred years in existence.
Various charters havo been grnntcd from J
time to timo, and privileges conferred upon
tho Corporation by succeeding rulers, EJ
ward 111., for instance, gavo and confirmed
many charters to tho city which arc still in
forco, and under theso ohartcrs and tho
rights and privileges conferred oven a
brief history of which would" fill your
paper the Corporation of London has been
onablod to carry out successively and successfully
all tho great improvements which
made the city what it is to-day."
"How is London governod?" asked the
"The government of the city," responded
tho Aldermen, " is mainly in tho hands ol
the Lord Mayor, as tho Chiof Magistrate,
tho Aldermen in number, elected
from wards,) who are magistrates of the
city; Commissioners of the High Court
and a Common Council consisting of 206
members, who are elected annually."
The Aldermen are magistrates of the
city of London, administering justice in
tho different courts, and aro commissioners
'with Her Majesty's judges the Lord Mayor
tfajjfcfttng first in tho High Court of
Jurisprudence. No Judge of tho realm
can render a decision unload an Alderman
bo prosont. It is necessary thai
two Aldermen shall bo presont at all times
during the sessions of tho Court of Common
Council. If only one Alderman
should be present no business o uld be
transacted. In tho Court of Aldermen
thirteen members, including tho Lord
Mayor, must be present boforo any business
can be done. No Alderman can
servo the oflico of Lord Mayor until he has
served tho ollico of tho Sheriff of London
and Middlesex. I might say here, speaking
of tho Sheriifs, that in. every 'other
county in England tlioy are elected or
' pricked ' by tho Lord Chancellor, but the
citizens of London some three hundred
years ago, by tho payment of a sum of
money, sccurod the light to nominate and
elect their own Shprills."
The Aldermen havo control of the police,
and of the streets, sewers and water service
jointly with tho Common Council.
The mombors of the Court 'of Aldermen
are ex officio governors of all tho tho hospitals.
Tho government of tho ho.phals
is under thoir control. We hnvo a'.so charge
of tho City School, in which from 1,200 to
1,G00 children aro educated. The National
School Board attends to tho other schools.
We grant licenses to all tho Stock Exchanges
and other brokers. No broker can
transact business fn the city unless licensed
by the Court of Aldermen. Then tho recorder
of London, who is tho highest
officer of tho corporation, a judge of the
roalm, and who is entitled to a seat in Parliament,
is elected by the Aldermon alone.
Tho Common Sergeant, who domes next in
rank, is eleoted by the, Aldermen and the
Court of Common 'Council. Putting it la
a gqneral way, the legislative body for the
city comprises the Court of Aldermen and
the Court of Common Council They meet
together weekly and discuss nnd carry out
all the legislation needed for the Government
of tho city."
"And the Lord Mayor how is he
Ho is elected by tho livery of tho city
in Common Hall. None but the livery can
vote for him." '
"What is, or who are, the ' livery? "
" The livery consists of members of the
various guilds of the city, who havo privileges
granted to them from time immemorial.
There are about seventy-two of these
guilds still existing in London. In the
early history of the city they represented a
trade, but now they are honorary rather
than actual. It is doomed an honor to be
eleoted a member of a guild, and although
they go by tho names of the difTerenHrados,
it is not necessary that tho members should
ever havo had the least knowledge of tho
trade which thoir guildB represent. For
instance, I have served master for two
years of the 'Brodcrers,' or Embroiderers
Guild, and havo just been elected for a
third term, but I don't know anything at
all about embroidery."
"Docs tho Livery both nominate and
elect the Lord Mayor."
" Tho office is a sort of a rotary one. On
the 28th of June in each year the namcB
of tho Alderman who have not served in
the office of the Lord Mayor nre submitted
to the livory assembled in Common Hall.
The livory return to tho Court of Aldermen
the names of the two senior juniors for
election to tho office of Lord Mayor. Tho
Aldermen then choose one of them almost
invariably the first senior of the juniors
and at onee report their choice to the livery.
On the 8th of the following November
the Lord Mayor takes his office. On that
day all the principal officers of the corporation
surrender their offices into his
hands, but he invariahly continues
them in office. For instance, Benjamin
Soott,. Chamberlain of the elty, has for upward
of quarter ef a century resigned
Tall office onee a year and been reappointed.
The day following the 0th of November
fjLtfee.memorable jay of the 'Lord Mayor's
Show,' when, at the'head of a procession,
he proceeds to Westminster. For the last
800 or 400 years the Lord Mayor's procession
has gono to Westminster to reccivo the
approval of tho ruling monarch of tho
selection of the citizens. This year, however,
owing to the romovnl of tho high
courts of law from Westminster to tho now
courts situated just outside of tho city
boundary, tho courso of the time-honored
procession will probably bo changed, but
all the pomp avd oeromouy will bo preserved.
After having been swoin in tho
now Lord Major receives Her Majesty's
Ministers nt a banquet.

I7io IMijivllNt (tinrrclH Willi III Wife,
mid Knocks Her Out In One Itoimil.
Boston, Juno 12. Profossor John L. Sullivan,
the champion pugilist, during tho
fow months, has had moro money than
o know what to do with moro than ho
evor had before. As n consequonco he has
been lionized by everybody from tho
bruiser and most any rato gambler to
tho aristocratic resident of Bcncon Hill
Mid tho Unck Hay. Tho Professor has
jpent money like a princo, nnd, as Is tho
custom with princes who spend money in
that way, ho has a host of friends who fob
lowed close at h n heels and never allowed
him to iniss an opportunity to wasto a dollar.
Tho result of this Is that ho had a good
time, nnd has been moro or less under the
influence of liquor while having it.
Tho other night ho wound up an expensive
epree, in which champagne formed a largo
clement, by going homo in a decidodly ugly
framo of mind. When Professor Sullivan
is ugly ho is a dangerous man and his conduct
is not always regulated by that
chivalry and gallantry which should
characterize tho strong and tho brave, and
bo it is the further ono keeps away from
him the better it is, whether ono be a man
or a woman. Mrs. Sullivan is a lady of
great beauty and clognnco of manner,
dresses with the richness nnd taste that
hecumcth the wife of a pet professor
in this great center of ethical
culturcf and of intelligence, too. Sho was,
however, unacquainted with somo of his
recently developed peculiarities. So when
ho stnggered tinto tho room sho began to
remonstrate. This nngored him, and be
begun to abuse her-In Inn gunge which was
forcible, but extremely shocking. Mrs.
Sullivan did not relish this treatment and
was not accustomed to.it, nnd so informed
her husband. Ho appeared unable to appreciate
tho fact, however, and becoming
more angry proceeded to maintain his reputation
by squaring off and knocking her
out in one round.
This report is mado up from tho statement
of the vanquished part)', and is as
she told the talo to the Court when
she obtained a warrant for tho professor's
arrest. It is understood that the
professor is now at a private retreat a few
miles from Providence, Rhode Jsland. It
is also understood two oiucors laftvthitcity
last evening to bring him back. It is sad
to romark that Professor Sullivan is on
probation now for a similar offense, and it
is more than likely it will go hard with
him if he is brought into Court again.

the pugilist, is in the city, tho guest

II Expect to Be In Control of Ilia
Tho Xow York Theaters Again This
New York, Juno 12. Mr. J. II. Haverly
expects to resume tho oontrol of his theaters
in .Now York and Brooklyn by .tho
middle of tho week. His friend, Mr. Chas.
H. McConuell, of Chicago, has" arrived
hero, and a conference was held in tho
Fifth Avenue Hotel, in which Mr. Haverly,
Mr. McConnell and their respective
Bel participated. No plan for extricating
Mr. ITavorly from his financial difficulties
was definitely, adopted, but tho preliminary
stops to bring about that result were agreed
to. Mr. McConnell said to a reporter:
" I have come on here to reinstate Mr.
Haverly in the control of his theaters, and
I mean to do bo. I am not his partner, and
nevor have been. Ho owes me a good deal
of money, but I'm not afraid that I shall
lose it. I have no doubt that wo shall be
ablo to lift all theso attachments against
his property. Tho claim of the American
Exchange National Bank will bo easily
Bettled, for I am on most of that paper. I
shall have that fixed. I don't think that
we shall have any trouble with the claims
of Shook and Collier. I am told that tho
Gilmoro and Colville suit for 13,000 is a
friondly action. If that is so we can easily
settle it. It looks to mo, however, liko an
attempt to get a theater cheap. But if
thoy get it they will havo to bid moro than
S1,000 for it."
Mr. McConnell denied that Mr. Haverly
intended to abandon the theatrical business.
His loase of the Fourteenth Street
Theater had six years to run, and, he would
be thore for that time in any ovent, and
perhaps might get a better ono.

a strong argument in refutation of the
charges which had been made, nnd the
House, on a division, refused to adopt the
motion of the Conservative party for nn adjournment.

UNDERNEATH THE WAVES.
Eating, Drinking and Smoking In the
Water by the Champion Swimmer of
New Yokic, June 11. Mr. Willid Beck-with,
the ohampion lwimmor of the world,
and his sister, Miss Agnos, who holds the
female championship of the samo planet,
both of whom arrived from England a fow
days ago, gavo an exhibition of their art In
the Natatorium, Nos. 2 and 4 East
and their performances were
really wonderfully. Willie Bcckwith is n
short and stout young man, 25 years of ag;e
and ho scorns as much at home in tbo water
as a fish. He wont under water last
evoning and devoured two sponges
cakes without coming to the
surface, and afterward drank a bottle of
milk underneath tho waves and thon
smoked a pipe under water, with tho bowl
above. In fact, it would seem that ho
might as woll stay under altogether, for
if a man can eat, drink, and smoke under
water during the hot weather New York is
at present oxperionoing, it is folly to
eomo above tho surfaco to bo roasted. It
took two minutes to oat tho cakes, one
minuto and a half to sinoko the pipe, and
the milkvwas consumed in ono minute. Mr.
Beokwith has a reoord, howovor, of staying
under water three minutes. His sifter's
exhibition Boemed' even moro wonderful
than his own, and as, unlike most female
performers, Miss Bcckwith U
pretty, it was more interesting. She
was attired in flesh tights, and a very
dccollotto bodico. She swam on her chest,
feet first, propelling horsolf with her
hands; she dressed in a sailor's suit
over hor tights, and took it off on the
surface of the water; sho swam with a
small hoop and passed her body
through it at each stioke ; she walked
in the water with her hands above her
her head, sho waltzed in the aqueous
fluid, nnd sho swam with her hands and
Willie Bcckwith gave an exhibition of
the " side stioko," swimming on his side
and using both arms, by which his father
held the championship of England ten
years; and ho also swain with the "overhand
stroke," by which ho hns won all ills
races in England, reaching over his head
whilo lying on his side, and moving with
great velocity. Ho swims with all his body
and most of his head under water. Miss
Bcckwith uses the " chest stroke," striking
out both aims simultaneously, and holds
her head high above tho water, and is as
graceful and as lithe as a mormaid. Mr.
Bcckwith swam undor tho water, holding
ono log abovo tho Burfaco that he might
breathe through his foot, and ho went underneath
and took off a sailor suit in which
ho was nttirod over his tights before coming
to tho top. His Bister gave an exhibition,
designated on tho programme, as
" the prayer," in which sho swam
with her foet, holding her clasped
hands above her head. This stylo of swimming
is recommended for steamboat collisions
and ocean wrecks, ns it gives ono an
opportunity to pray for help while he or
she 'paddles shore fltrd. Another exhibition
was that of the " Christian Martyr,"
after tho picture of that .name, in which a
maiden, clothed in a halo, is floating to her
doom with her hands angelically clasped
on her bosom. This was imitated to perfection
by Miss Beokwith, who was towed
about the tank by her brother to make the
illustration more realistic. The exhibition
closod with illustrations by the two of bad
swimming and diving, and tho easiest
method of saving life. Mr. Beokwith also
imitated a porpoise with great offect, and
Miss Beokwith personated a propellor to
the lifo. Tho two will give exhibitions
throughout tho country, and may deoido to
givo lessons in swimming.

Tho Fl'sst Official Keport or the Tight
and Capture of the Indians.
Tucson, A. T., June 12. A courier ar.
rived nt Tombstono Inst night from Crook's
headquarters, at Silver Creek, Arizona
bringing the first official information of
Crook's expedition. It left Amcricnn soil
on tho 3d of Mny, marching 200 miles ,
southeast from San Bnrnardino. on tho
boundary line of Chihuahua and Sonora,
following tho trail of tho hostiles.
Crook was gtiidod by tho Apache,
who was captured near San Carlos,'
just previous to tho expedition leaving. At
a point about 200 miles south of the line the
command crossed flic Sierra Ncvndas
range, advanced fifty miles over an Indescribably
rough trail, eight mules being
killed by falling over piccipices, and
pressed on without delay. The men wero
roudoio I ne irly barefooted by sharp rocks.
After fourteen days hard inarching, night
and day, the Indian camps of Chato and
Bonito were discovered in tho henrt of the
Sierra Maihcs in nn almost linpregnnble
position. Tho Apaches did not dream of
an attack for tho entrance to the stronghold
wns next to impossible and the warriors
were principally out on n raid under
Juh, only bucks' being in the
camp with the women and children.
The San Carlos scouts, under Cnptnln
Crawford and Lieutenants At wood and
Mackey, with Al. Sebree, Mcintosh and
Michoy Free, chiofs of tho scouts, surrounded
the camp before the hostiles wore
awaro of their proximity, and advanced
from different points and were noar before
they wcie discovered. The scouts soeretod
themselves behind rocks and commonced

A number succeeded in oscaping, though
nearly all surrendered. Seven wero found
dead in camp. Five Moxican women and
a little girl wero rocaptured. Thoy wero
taken from Carmen and Chihuahua, and
aro now with Crook "in good hoalth.
Everything in camp was burned or carried
off by the acoufs.
Among the property captured were 100
ponies nnd mules, forty being loaded with
plunder, baddies, cirdles, clothes, gold and
silver watches, and several thousand dollars
in gold, silver and greenbacks, showing
that they had been very successful in
their raids. After the fight most of those
who escaped came in. Altogether 383
prisoners wero taken.
Tho chiefs captured wero Chato, Bonito, ,

After the fight, tho command, with the
prisoners, marched leisurely back to the
American suil, and the entire command,
with the prisoners, are now encamped on
Silver Creek, about sixty miles south ol
Tombstone. Not ono of Crook's command
wns lost during the campaign.
The courier states that the reason why
Crook remains at Silver Creek is thnt he is
awaiting news from the Secretary of War
as to what disposition to make of the Indians,
as Wilcox, agent at S.m Carlos, refused
to receive them, and that he will g
back to tho Sierra Madres after the rest of
the hostiles it thoy do not come.
In conversation with a courier he stated
that he had plenty of money. Quite a number
of buqks had silver stars and other ornaments
beaten out of Mexican dollars on
thoir head-gear, and several of them American
double eagles made into ncoklnces,
A rough estimate of the amonnt of wealtk
among them is fully 5,000, and probably
A NARROW ESCAPE.
An Attorney at Tcrro Ilauto, Ind.,
Fires at Congressman Lamb, Who
Saves Hlo Life by Dodging His
Terrb Hadte, Ind., June 2. S. C. Davis,
a prominent member of the Bar of this
city, of tho firm of Davis & Davis, attempted
to kill Hon. John E. Lamb, Congressman
from this city, in this oity about four
o'olook this afternoon. Tbo affair took
place at tho foot of tho stairs leading to
Lamb's office, on Wall street, and grew out
of feeling in an important case in which
tho attorneys wore opposing counsel.
Davis was standing at the' foot of the
stairs with Edward Pugh, a young
lawyer, and H. G. Thompson, whon
Lamb crossed from the opposite
side of tho street ,to address them
Davis said: " Don't you spoak to me.'
Lamb roplied, "Yes, I will, and I want, to
talk to you." Davis answered, " No you
won't speak to mo, you s n of a b , or I'll
kill you, ' at the samo time pulling a revolver.
Lamb had a roll of 'papers in ono
hand and a oano injtho right. Ho threw
up his right arm in an attempt to knock off.
the revolver, and Pugh caught Davis' cuffjf -.
but could not pre&nt him from shooting;
He pointed the rovolvor directly at
Lamb, who attempted to seize it, and, falling,
ducked his head just as Davis fired.
This action saved his life, and ho ran into ,
Brown's dry goods store, where Davis made,
no attempt to follow.
The ball from the revolver passed through
the sido of a passsing wagon and struck
the foot of Josiah Hioklin, a Sugar Creek
farm or, inflicting a painful, but not dangerous,
wound. Davla immediately surrendered
himself to tho authorities,
but Lamb refused to file an
'against him, and ho was
reloased. News of tho shooting spread
rapidly and a orowd had gathered at the
scene, The report was carried to 'the
Circuit Court, whioh immediately adjourned.
Something of tho kind has been expected
for several days past, as the feeling
tho men has boon intensified by talc-
bearers. It oamo to the ears of Davis that
Lamb was carrying a loaded cane for, tho
purpose of attaoking him, and it is, said
that tho latter was waiting on purpose U
meet him. Davis declines to glyo any
statement to tho papers.
