In favor of the nomination of Mr Hen

It Is to be hoped that Mr. Cable will

nominated would have an easy walk

Thk recommendation of the policy
board of the navy for a naval establish

in all respects the views of the secret

ahips of the first, second and third class
as recommended by the hoard, the secre
tary proposes but twenty, and instead of
190 cruisers, monitors and torpedo boats,
he advises twenty coast defence ships
ami sixty cruisers, of which thirty-one
are now built or authorized, making a
avy of 100 vessels He also adds the
recommendation of a fleet of fast
merchantmen, capable of being tiaed

of this city visited two "gallon houses" and

nearly 1,U00 worth of liquors. Such an act
was not unexpected. For months these two

rar as tho public could learn The contiuued
outrage of public sentiment lias aroused
much indigiiHticu, and it 1ms been evident
that a crisis would soon be reached.

Three of the secret orders have this week
taken actiou re 'urding the disregard of law,
and a petition was circulated Thursday aud

to do something toward closing them. This

Seal, chairman of the Democratic state
wmmittee during the last stato campaign,
was the first witness yesterday before the

.Jovernor Camphell did not have Halstead

that his suspicions were not correct
What He Meant by " Largely."
Ex-Governor Foraker wanted the witness
to statu why he used the word "largely."
"Do you think that I had anything to do
with the matter f
"No, sir," replied the wltne-s; "but I do
think that you were remiss in not coming to

Son or the Count or I'arla The Author

HI Adventure The Walea Mining
Paris, Feb. 8. Prince Philippe. Due d'Or
leans, eldest son of the Comte de Paris, was
arrested here yesterday. He arrived in
Paris in the morning, the bearer of a letter
announcing tho abdication of his father and
his formal renunciation of all claims to the
French throne, together with a manifesto of
the Conite de Pari to the tieople. The gov
ernment was aware of his presence in the
city, aud ho was at once taken into custody
for violation of the law banishing royal pre
tenders from France.
A Possible Pretender.
Nominally, and according to tho theory of
pretenders, a pretender is always a king,
and therefore the count of Pars abdicates
tho throne he never possessed ; and in virtue
of this abdication all his claims, rights, and
titles de, , iid to his eldest sou, the young
gentleman uow In the hands of the authori
ties. Tho gentleman is, therefore, not merely
one of many vagrant princes, but the actual
pretender to the throne in virtue of his
claims as the heir of Louis Phillippe aud also
as the heir of tho old Bourbon line.
And a Mighty Bash Young Man.
His coming into the country. In violation
of the law banishing all the heads and di
rect heirs of reigning families, is a rash es
capade, even if it stands alone. The fact
that he was equipped with an appeal to the
nation shows his intentions and may make
the escapade serious for him If it should be
develop that this movement is made in
virtue of an understanding with the parti
sans of the monarchy in France it may be
more than a mere violation of the law of ex
pulsion. The fiovernraeut Waa Qui Vive.
The govornmont was not caught napping,
however. It was promptly informed of tho
presence of the duke in Paris, and of his
whereabouts, and thoy took him in. In the
afternoon he was arraiguod before the mili
tary authorities at tho central bureau. In
response to the inquiry as to the objects and
purposes of his visit to France, he said that
having at turned his majority, ho had come
to Frauce to place himself at the disposal of
tbe military authorities. This dash of audac
ity is regarded as a very hap
py stroke, and is sure to make
friends for him, for a gallant French
boy who watits to take his chance for con
scription is a somewhat unusual and capti
vating figure to appear in the daily news.
But this did not touch the sensibilities of
tbe hard-hearted authorities, aud M. Con
stance, the minister of the interior, ordered
that the duke be held In custody. Further
disposition of the case of course depends on
whether it is discovered that there was a
plot for a general royalist movement behind
