Proceeding of the Trial An American
CorrestKtaileni H ho Cannot Believe the
Young Scot t.ulrty.
LoxWX, 'June 10. The pnat baccArat
trial Is over, and the result is the Masting
of the life of one of the most brilliant and
daring soldiers t f the British army. The
Prince of Wales was not present at court
yetenlay,: preferring to attend the races
at Ascott. The sensational feature of the
day took place early when Gen. Owen
Williams, in a voice husky with emotion,
asked Justice Coleridge's protection
against the imputations made by Sir Ed
ward Clarke that the general was sacrific
ing an innocent man. Sir Kdward vigorously-protested
aiainst the general being
permitted to speak, hut the latter per
sisted mA In a very augry manner repu
diated the insinuations made in Sir Ed
ward" speech. Fiually Justice Coleridge
peremptorily ordered the general to sit
down and hold his peace.
The Lonl Chief Justice's Charge.
Jritrtkv Coleridge's charge wasdistinctly
agaiar. the plaintiff. He particularly
warned the jury to confine themselves to
the evidence, and pay no attention to the
claim by plaintiff's attorney that there
was more in the case than appeared in evi
dence. This claim the justice emphat
ically denied. He said the jury had th.
whole cae before it in the evidence. He
spoke of Sir William's services in the
army, and credited him with a career of
bravery that did himself and the country
honor, and remarked that Sir VTilliaro.
was a sort of lion at Tranby Croft, u guest
of hrior, ot whom t he Wilsons were proud,
as t?y Wl a riirht to 1.
-V Verdict Ouickly Rendered.
It did ii. t take the jury more than fif
teen minutes to come to a conclusion, and
when they returned to the court-room the
foreman, in reply to the question of the
clerk, pronounced the sentence of Sir
William tiordou Camming in words to
the elTect th:tt the jury found for the de
fendant. So, in the opinion of the jurv,
with the evidence liefore them, it was no
slander to say that ir William had een
guilty of cheating at cards. Nothwith
sianding the terrible nature f the find
ing to Sir William, he seemed unmoved
by it. He s.tt cch.1 ami calm, and looked
straight at the jury, without change of
color or tremor of muscle. When he left
the Totirt -room the crowd outside gave
him a cheer.
, 'rushing Kect of the Verdict.
Thl verdict means much to the plaintiff.
It .his social ruin. It means that he
uf,e cashkred from the army, expelled
from the clubs, warned off the race courses,
and socially ostracised where heretofore
he has been a welcome and honored guest.
It means that he has but two alternatives
suicide or a life out of Enuland; an
obscure existence on the continent, or
somewhere else where those who once
knew and met him will know and meet
him no more.
What a Jnror Say.
One of the jurymen has lieen inter
viewed, and says that from the moment
they entered the jury room there was no
doubt as to what their verdict would lie.
They were all for the defendants. Only
one inclined toward the plaintiff, and he
was not at all inclined to prevent unan
imity.. Personally, all would have liked
to find a way to vindicate Sir William,
but the evidence was so strongly auainst
him that they could not conscientiously
liuude in his favor.
ONE WHO KNEW SIR WILLIAM.
John l;uell Voiint Can Not Ilelieic His
.nilt a I'oil.iIit.
The eminent correspondent. John Rus
sell 1 ouiik who is on terms of c-los in
timacy with ?:r William Gordon Cum
ruine, says: -I know ir William Gordon
Cumniing well, and for week was his as
sociate, journeying with him in India,
Egypt, and AlbaUa. I had, Wfore I met
him. known one of his relatives, the fa
mous Mi-s Gordon Cumming. whose
works have told us so much about China.
Japan, and the islands of the Pacific. I
found him of a type we never see in the
United Ftates hard to understand when
seen with American eyes, such a character
a-saori fiad aixiut in novels a spare, lithe,
active, well formed man, with a finely-cut
devp. intense grey eye, a face that
had a go-deal of the Grant in it.
A Descendant of Kings.
"There are all kinds of traditions and
legends twisted around Lis family tree,
but as blood goes, blood in direct descent
and alliances, the family of Gordon Cum
ming is iietter than that of the Prince of
Wales. There was a I)e Comyn, ho was
killed .it the battle of Alnwick. Malcolm
was also slain in the siege of Alnwick caw
tie, and I)e Coniyns at his side so we ma v
know there was fightim: blood in his taai-
ily siM yew ag. i. There Was likewise a
liruce dear to all Scotchmen Hulwrt the
Bruce, a renowned sovereign who died in
la.".' to the lasting sorrow ,f Scotland, as
we must dutifully lielieve. He had a
daughter Marttnret. who married a Suth
erland, and among other maternal dut ies
was the production through various an
cestries of Sir William Gordon Cumming.
Likewise through another ancestor there
is a IfBk with James I., and by these ties
interlaced with Austrian archdukes, the
royal ?tuarts, the Plantagenets, and other
species of princes to a degree quite incal
culable. The Camming Arm.
"The coat of arms is a complicated af
fair. Its motto, 'Sans Crainte' 'without
fear' borne likewise by Baronet Tyrell,
the same family as did service to Crook
Backed Richard at Bosworth field. There
is a crst 'courage' and quarteriugs of the
Gordons, Badeoochs. Setons, Erasers aad
Butberlamd. Aly Scottish readers will
know vwnat this means, and how toe
Scotchmen of Forres and Elgin will be
moved at the spectacle of one of such a
race a race who were sovereign when the
ancestors of Albert Edward were minor
German noblemen chasing the wild boar
through Pomeranian forests sitting
under the invective of an Irish lawyer,
charged w,,n stealing a few pounds by
cheating at cards.
. Inka of Cambridge' Opinion.
"He bad dared the tiger in the jungle,
the alenaXat In the Indian forests, and
traced the Rocky mountains and tha Mex
ican Cordilleras in his cravings fo sport.
I could see the uian who won fane as a
gallant soldier in the army, could -realize
his daring deeds m the Soudan and
Africa, his invincible, joyous coura,re, his
Highland nature, which danger a lected
as though with wine, and I could quite
believe what an officer said to me in Lon
don, that Cummings was, iu the wc rds of
the Duke of Cambridge, 'the best toldier
in war, and the worst in time of pe ice in
the British army.'
Sir William at Cards.
I have seen Cumming play cards a great
deal, have played whist with him. There
was nothing to show that he cared more
for cards than any other man of the v-orld,
that a rubber of whist was a good bnak in
the monot-ony of seafaring, and no more.
He played an ordinary game, no better, no
worse than what you may see in the aver
age rubber at the club. - The play of Sir
William, whepever I witnessed or scared
it, was not that of a gambler, but the play
of a gentleman. I could imagine any
thing of Sir William Gordon Cumaiing
rather than his cheating at cards.
An Unacceptable Theory.
I can only fancy the possibility of such
thing upon some theory that the devil is
in us more than we are apt to imagine,
and there is no knowing when or in what
form he may come out. I do not ai-cept
such a theory, but rather take my own
impressions of a man as I find him. It
is a little over a year ago since I took my
leave of Sir William Gordon Cumn ing.
We stood on deck under the very shadow
of the Bridge of Sighs and looked out
upon the beauty, the majesty, the tuoarn
ful splendid decay of Venice."
Hurrying Home to His Rnln.
He was hurrying back to England,
home military ambition he loved so v eil,
and in which he hail won so earlv at. en
viable renown. Home to the Highlaids,
to Mayfair, to the companionships of the
proudest and noblest, so much of w hat
was brave and beautiful in England, a
young nobleman in the fullness of joy nd
proud manhood. And now the c no
sure of all eyes, the jest of the music hall
and the slum: his name, that was fatuous
lefore that of his sovereign waskuewn
beyond the German forests, battered and
tossed, the very football of ignominy and
Hill Never lielieve His t.uilu
"I can conceive no contrast so terrible.
Whatever the result of the trial. Sir Will
iam Gordon Cumming has died a thou
sand deaths, and passed through "he
wretchedness of sorrow, aironv and t.es
pair. I shall ever think of Sir Willi iu
Gordon Cumming as I last saw him on The
Adriatic, and never lielieve it possible
that he could fall to the deaths into wh ch
the eloquence of Sir Charles Russell
would con-ign him."

Which, If They Shall Materialize at the
Toll. Are Likely to Make a Diversion
Col. Conger, of Ohio, Speculates Some
on the liuckeye State Situation A
Democratic Congressman Indicates
Where Appropriations Can Be Reduced
by the Coming National Legislature.
Lacrosse. Wis.. June 10. The state
convention of the Farmers' Alliance was
held here yesterday. There were over 200
delegates present when President Butt
called the meeting to order and appointed
a committee on credentials. Bob Schill
ing, of Milwaukee, made a speech advocat
ing the establishment of a newspaper for
the Alliance. The convention then went
into secret session and was addressed by
President Polk, of North Carolina, and
Jere Simpson, of Kansas. A monster
mass-meeting was held at Germania
garden in the evening, uron which occa
sion Congressman Simpson, of Kansas,
addressed the multitude.
Simpson for Tariff Reform.
While Mr. Simpson seems to be heart
and soul in the cause of the third party
movement, he is not by any means rabid.
He believes that the farmers of the west
are paying too much royalty to the manu
facturers of the east, and his remarks
would make a very good chapter in a
tariff reform document. He said that in
addition to the National Farmer's Alliance
and Industrial Union, there are the Col
ored Farmer's Alliance, the Farmer's
Mutual Benefit association, the Patrons of
Husbandry, and the Northwestern Alli
ance. Strength of the ti ranger Vote.
The first claims a membership of 1.300,
010, the great mass of which is. of course,
in the south. The Farmers' Mutual Ben
efit association has about l.V'.in0 members,
nearly all of whom are in Illinois, Indi
ana, and Ohio. The Patrons of Husbandry
are about iV'.iVJ strong, and are pretty
well scattered over the northern states.
The Northwestern Alliance is strong in
Nebraska, Minnesota. Wisconsin and
Iowa, and its roll of membership reaches
about 175.01O to Ao.uw men. He emoted
j from the pres dispatches lately published
to snow the increase of memturship since
the Ocaia convent ion.
Will Scud Monopoly to Hade.
He said that the majority of leaders in
the west and south favor a new party, but
that the southern Alliances were not anx
ious to proceed until after the national
Democratic convention was held, as they
wanted to see what action that body would
take. The labor organizations of the
country, he said, would unite with the Al
liances, and the result would be to send
monopoly to that region where fire predominates.

district, died at his home in Geneva Mon

of Ohio, who is at the Grand Pacific, was
talking about the great coming struggle
in his state last evening. He is a member
of the Republican national committee, an
ex-congressman, and can talk Buckeye

Campbell expects a renomination from the
Democrats, and is opular, but will not
get it. because the Cincinnati wing of the
party will oppose him owing to his action

No Room for a Third Party.
-Will the newly born party have a state
ticket in the field
-It's generally understood and stated, in
fact, by the third party leaders that they
will not interfere with the coming state
fight. Lines will lie so closely drawn that
a third party, unless led by Gov. Camp
bell, would get but a scant sprinkling of
votes. Politicians in every state are watch

calculations may be made upon the presi
