whom he was transferring from Frankfort
to a prlon on the Kentucky Central liall

and htarted on foot lor the prison. Later

The contest yesterday between the

resulted in a victory for the former,
with the Treadways barred iu the

CAPTURE OF SHEA.
The Murderer of Officer Doran to be Re
turned for Sentence.
St. Louis, Mo May !t. The capture
of Shea, the murderer of Olllcer Doran, Is
regarded with great satisfaction by the
police. Circuit Attorney Harvey sent on
a requisition to the Governor of Pennsyl
vania two days ao, and as Shea Is serv
ing a term for burglary it is expected he
will be pardoned the lesser offense In or
der to be hanged for the greater. Harvey
was Shea's counsel In the murder trial,
and on him will devolve the task of ask
ing that sentence be passed upon the
convicted murderer. His motion for a
new trial having been overruled, all that
remains for Shea Is an appeal or the gal
lows. S1IKA IX riTTSBunmi.
PiTTSitritiiii, Pa., May 'J. After his
escape from the St. Louis authorities
Shea made several attempts to cross the
Atlantic, but was unsuccessful. During
May, ls;s, he came to Pittsburgn and
worked in a glass factory on the South
Side, where he was shadowed by St.
Louis detectives, when he left the city,
but came back in a few days. The first
reliable clue to his whereabouts seems to
have been obtained on his conviction lu
this county. Ever since then the St.
Louis authorities have bten correspond
ing with Warden Wright. Shea's iden
tification yesterday by Detectives J. P.
Browning was positive and beyond a
doubt. The prisoner recognized Brown
ing at once and jocularly re
marked to him in the course of
conversation that if he had ever got to
Cuba, he would have been safe. On the
10th of June last Shea, under the name of
John Sullivan, was convicted of burglary
and sent to the Western Penitentiary for
live years, but had not been an inmate
long until, in connection with another
prisoner, he planned an escape, which
would have been successful but for the
vigilance of a keeper, who brought Sulli
van, or Shea, back from the prisou at tho
point of a revolver. After his removal
from the old pen he was again planning
an escape and again was frustrated.
To-day Browning applied to Governoi
Patterson at llarrisburg for a requisition
to take the prisoner to St. Louis.

Dr. Anderson, President of tho Uni
versity, made a short address upou the

press of telling the people that Christian
ity was falling and losing Its grip.
Tho Recent Suspensions.
Nkw Youk, May !). Wm, C. Smith,
of the Stock Exchange and a membci
of tho tlrm of Grant & Ward, said this
afternoon "I don't think the statement ol
the assignee will bo ready until the lat
ter part of next week. I don't think
the amount of liabilities will reach eight
million dollars. These figures are all
gossip, and are extravagant y large. 1
had nothing to do with the transactions
of the tlrm beyond the business done on
the exchange The railroad companies
which received loans ou securities,
and which have been taansferrej
to other persons are amply protected and
will lose nothing. The losses will fall
chtetly upon Individuals who Invested
money with the tlrm. Of course, General
Grant and son have known of the firm's
transactions, but I do not think they were
fully aware of the large amount involved.
lliey Dave been led on by ward, ana wui,
of course, lose heavily. The Marine Hank
has begun suit against Ferdinand Ward
for 8700,000, tho amount of over-drafts

New York; Enoch Hogalie, of Northwest

Keporta Anxiously Awaited.
Nkw York, May 0. There are no new
developements In Wall street this morn
ing iu relation to the suspension of the
Marine Bank, and of Grant & Ward. On
one hand the bank examiner's report Is
awaited; on the other a statement of tho
llrrn of brokers. It is not likely that
either document will be prepared before
to-morrow. The rumor that Ward was
to be arrested has not yet been confirmed.
It is said Ward has become a physical
wreck, caused by the strain attendant
upon the trouble and suspension.

Jubilant Over the Fine Condition ol
Their Wheat Crop.
Siiklhyvillk, I ix., Mav 9. The pros
pects for wheat in this section of the
State are much more encouraging than
they were two weeks ago. Abundaut
rains assisted by the recent warm weather,
have given it a wonderful impetus, and
iu some places the plant Is growing so
luxuriantly that it will fall down and
lodge. Some wheat growers who, dis
couraged with the outlook, were thinking
of plowing up their ground and putting
in corn, have abandoued the idea and are
jubilant over the change. Instead of a
meagre half crop, as reported ten days
ago, experienced farmers now predict
fully a three-fourths crop.

Estimated That the Liabilities of Grant &
Ward Will Figure Up Ten
Nkw Yohk, May 9. Tho suspicion
grows that tho Grant & Ward failure
Is much more serious thati at first
intimated. A well-known member of
the Stock Exchange to-day said: "For
four or th e months I have heard rumors
of the queer transactions of Grant
& Ward. I do not think $8,000,
0oo by any means an extravagant
estimate of the liabilities of the tlrm.
My belief is that they will exceed $10,
ooo.ouij. When their failure was an
nounced I said it would bo the largest
Wail street ever saw, and I am more
firmly convinced than ever of the truth
of these estimates. What the assets can
be no one knows, but probably very
small, and the disparity in the llgures
w ill undoubtedly cause a surprise."
Nkw YciiiK, May 9. President Fish, of
the Marine Bank will not be asked to re
sign until a receiver Is appointed, when a
new President will doubtless be elected.
Fish repeats his statement that the de
positors will lose nothing. The bank,
according to its own statement, had 81,
450,000 in cash last Saturday, and on
Tuesday its cash was ouly $250,000. It
is stran.'e how the large difference disap
peared iu three days, and the matter ex
cites much comment. Graut & Ward are
sued by the New York, Chicago & St.
Louis Hallway Company, aud the Su
preme t'ourt has granted an order re
quiring defendants to show cause why a
receiver should not be appointed to wind
up their affairs. Meantime, they are re
strained lrom Interfering with tho part
Vauderbilt alleges that Grant & Ward,
upon tho receipt of certain notes aud se
curities from the N. Y., C. & St. L. Com
pany, made reckless use of them iu bor
rowing money. U. S. Grant, Jr., has
conveyed city property to Jerome Chaffee,
his father-in-law, for 300,000. The last
effort of Graut & Ward to weather the
storm was made ten days before their
failure, when they borrowed through an
agent $5oo,ono from a foreign bank. It
is not know what securities were used
In negotiating this loan. The members
of the firm, by agreemeut, drew out
$3,000 each per month for living ex
penses. The younger partners lived very
extravagantly. Both Jesse and Fred
Grant have lost heavily.

members of the Cortes, resulted lu the
Conservatives' return by a large majority
to both the upper aud lower chambers.
The Republicans claim that the Con
servatives used the whole force of the
Government organization to secure the
return of their candidates. During the
elections the Republicans sent delegates
to watch the procedure, and the dele
gates were, it Is said, obstructed by
the Government ofllcials. A large num
ber of Liberal candidates withdrew
from tho contest on account of the fact
that It was Impossible to maintain the
light with Government candidates.
Bkiilin, May 9. The debate lu the
Reichstag on the anti-Socialist bill was
resumed to-day, Bismarck delivered a
strong speech In support of the bill, de
claring tho provisions of tho bill neces
sary to enable the Government to success
fully combat the Socialists, who claimed
to be not only a revolutionary body, bull
also aimed at tho disorganization of so
ciety, aud were the cause of many strikes
and Increased suffering among tho work
ing classes. Continuing, tho Prince said :
"In 1S8:', recognizing tho rapid growth of
Socialism lu Germany and through
out Europe and the contemptible means
employed to get rid of an objectionable
persou, I proposed that a conference of
the powers be held, at which measures
should be agreed upon for joint action
for tho suppression of the dynamite policy
adopted by tho outlaws of the society, bo
they socialists, anarchists, nihilists or dy
namiters; but England and France re
fused to join In the conference. It re
malus tor us to adopt a policy which will
effectually rid Germany of such persons,
and tho Government Is fully determined
that the measures contained lu this bill
shall become law, aud If the Reichstag
should reject the bill, a dissolution will
follow and an appeal be made to your
electors to condemn your action by re
turning members who will fully agree
with the Government that socialist, excess
es must be vigorously combattod."
