General Manager E. St. John, of the

enthusiastically of tbe excellent crop

He says the prospects have never been so
flattering at this season of the year, and
so far as wheat is concerned an enormous
crop is assured. There is also an in
crease in the acreage sown with grain
this year in Kansas alone of nearly 1,
000,000 acres. Oklahoma, he says, is

shirking disposition as regards his ap
pointments, and asserts that tbe mayor
avoided his duty, and that the only way
be can fail to vole is "by calling an alder
man to the chair and absenting himself.
His vote for Mr. Reddig would have con
firmed him; bis silence was as effective as
tbe loudest 'no' that could have been
pronounced." The Union expresses tbe
hope that before next council meeting
the mayor will see the matter in a "clearj
er light as to the quality of his functions
as executive and as a member of tbe city
council will ue his own vote, if it is to
be cast, to sustain bis own nomination."
But the mayor has emphatically asserted
that he would not by his casting vote
confirm tbe appointment of bis own
brother if made by himself, and he has
also ssad that Mr. Murrin suited him for
superintendent. Will he still further
evade his duty as be sees it himself, or
will he act tbe part of a man?

Justifying; the law or the Mob.
At the meeting the determination vaa
shown that the people, could not submit
to the surrender of their rights into the
hands ot midnight assassins and their
powerful allies. The assassination ot the
iate chief of police shows the culmination
of a conspiracy. His death was deemed
necessary to prevent the exposure and
punishmeat of criminals whoso guilt was
being fast established by his diligent pur
suit. Tbe condition of affairs in this com
munity as to a certain class of violat
ors of the law, had reached such a
stage that the law itself was well nigh
powerless to deal with them. So far reach
iug was their power and influence in the
trial of criminal cases, that good citizens
were profoundly impressed by the repeated
and signal failure ot justice. The arts ot
the perjurer and briber seemed to predom
inate iu the courts, paralyzing and ren
dering powerless the ends of justice. Cer
tainly this was a desperate situation.
The Cprising 'Was Invincible.

New Orleans, La., May fl. The long
delayed report of the grand jury in the
International affair of the parish prisoners
March 14, was presented late yesterday to
Judge Marr. It justifies the citizens, pre
sents no indictments, and a full condensa
tion is given below. All tbe jurors sign
the report, w hich is first devoted to a re
cital ot the facts of the killing ot Hen
nessey, and a review of the trial of the
accused, ending with the statement that
the verdict was a shock and disappoint
ment, and resulted in the conviction that
the jury had been unfaithful to their
duty, and khat tbe evidence against the
prisoners was clear, continuous, complete
and convincing. The allegations of jury
fixing are considered, and it is stated that
all the jurors were examined and made
statements treely, rather welcoming the
jiportunity. They nearly all justified
their verdict by the assertion that the
state had a poor case.
Criticised the Mate's Evidence.
This statement was made in the jury
room as early as the first day ot the trial,
and repeated daily uutil the close, and

jury to the evidence, and the fact th" 1

Evidence of Jury Fl Xing.
The grand jury then proceeds to exam
ine the allegations that the jury was
fixed. The report says that talesmen who
had been previously marked were seen
alone, and told that there was big money
to be made by going on the jury and do
ing right, and that this temi.itiou in
fluenced some while it was rejected by
Others. This assertion is made on the cvi-1
dence of talesmen who had ref use i to be I
purchased. It is charged that the list i
of talesmen was ordered to be kept secret, i
but that Lionel Adams, counsel for the
prisoners, and Detective O'Malley pro- I

THE BRIBERY CONSPIRACY.

froceedmg, the report hers mentions
the testimony of Thomas (.'. Collius who
"secured employment in O'Malley
& Adam' office, and was commissioned a
special officer by the mayor and paid by
the city for this service. T.iis report un
folds the whole story of the iniquitous
workings of the arch-conspirator and his
lieutenants, revealing the boundless
power made to overcome and defy tbe
majesty of the law, criminal and civil
proceedings, through the operations of an
unscrupulous piivate detective agency.
In the attempts to icflutuce talesmen
and the successful part of it, whispered
words conveyed the insinuation or direct

wuce will erve to show the barriers
this it. quest has encountered in securing

und reliable witnesses to justify the in
dictment of six men as follows: Thomas
McCrystol and John Cooney. with D. C.
O'Malley, for attempting to bribe a tales
man, and Bernard Glandi, Chanes

attempt by each to bribe three different

sliown to have been intimate with'O'Mal

report, however, says that O'Malley wns

were old offender.', whose crimes run
