TRIUMPH OP EIB0T
The French Premier Beats a
BIG MAJORITY FOE THE MINISTRY.
lllllevoye Makes a Violent Attack on the
Government and Calls lor Dissolution,
Bat Is Burled Out or Sight Intense Ex
citement and Much Noise in the Cham
ber Again A London Dally News Cor
respondent Declares the Republic All
Right Mine. Clemcnceau at Rockford,
Paris, Dec. 24. The scene in the cham
ber of deputies yesterday when M. Mille
voye interpellated the ministry regarding
advances of money by the Panama Canal
company was of the motit stormy charac
ter. M. Millevoye said that he desired to
question the government as to the facts in
its possession relating to the", usej of con
tributions by a former premier from the
Panama Canal company, whose corrupt
and criminal operations were now being
investigated. M. Ribot in behalf of the
government snid he accepted immediate
discussion of the subject. President
Floquet thereupon vacated the chair, M.
Paytral taking his place, and ascended the
tribune. There was a hush in the chamber
as the former minister began his address
of exculpation, and every face was turned
toward the speaker with the most cater in
terest. M. Kloqnet declared with emphasis
that while a member of the ministry he
has never received money from the Panama
Canal company for aDy purpose whatever.
A Royalist IlaiNes a Row.
Oount Jules de Bernes, an anient Roynl
ist, indulged in a " violent attack on .L
Flooquet and denounced his conduct in
the alleged bribing of newspapers. Count
de Berues continued: "You not only al
lowed tha people to be robbed of their sav
ings, but yoa were an accomplice iu the
nefarious crime," At this there was I'.r
wildest excitement. Deputies stood and
waved their arms and shouted, some in
denunciation and others in approval of 0:.'
language of Count de Bcrnes. Wh-ti
order had been restored in some decree M.
Millevoye arose and indulged in a violent
attack upon M. ltouvier. Millcvoyu was
repeatedly applauded by the Boulangists,
Royalists and Imperialists, but it was evi
dent that fewer Republicans were inclined
to join in the excitement. Kouvier then
took the floor and again denied any con t
plicity in the Puuuma canal frauds, he
was hissed and cheered.
Millevoye Demands Dissolution.
Rouvier was still in the aisle w hen AiiIIe-v
voye stepped into the speaker's tribim ',
The first -words of the lioulaupist deputy
showed his pur)Kse to precpilie u erisis
immediately. He spoke briefly but vio
lently. The present cabinet, he taid, was
treated neither by the ptople nor their
representatives. Both its meuiln rs and ad
herents were in the shadow of ;t fatal sus
picion. Men choseu to sere the high ia
terests of France were falling daily under
charges of misrepresenting those interests.
The time had come for an appeal to the
preferenee of the electors. Applause on
the right and disorder on the left. Ou
behalf of those who had the honor of
France at heart he demanded a dissolution.
At this point uproar ou the Hour inter
rupted M. Millevoye and he stooil silent
nntii the cheere and shouts of protest miIs
sided. Then he moved a vote of "no confi
dence." ; KNOCKED OUT BY RIBOT.
The rrtinler Replies and the -IliuUtiy Is
Rilot, the premier, then rose to defend
the government. The purpose, of Mille
voye, he said, was apparent to all. He in
tended to unload scandal after sc.mdal
upon the government .until he wrecked it.
Cries of "Xo, no," from the Boulangists
greeted this statement and.M. Millevoye
shouted: "The facts will suffice to wreck
it when all is known." "M. Millevoye"
continued M. Ribot, "is attempting to
bring to trial, not individuals but the Re
publican institutions of France. II is attack
was directed, not against the cabinet nor
against those persons charged with corrup
tion, but against uationalinstitutious which
have been built by the labor and self-sacrifice
of devoted patriots. The plotters azainat
the republic should not delude themselves
with the idea that a dissolution would ac
complish their ends, for the people know
their enemies and the masks of their ene
mies." Why Not Walt (or the VerdictT
"Honesty in politics above all, I say," M.
Ribot called out aa he turned to face the
Right, "but no toleration oi men who con
spire to ruin our republic The whoie
machinery of the law has been set in mo
tion to punish the guilty. Can you not
wait for the verdict? Prolonged cheers.
Others may be deceived by tardy protesta
tions of unsullied purity, but surely the
gentlemen before me are in a position to
perceive the motive of this sudden show of
virtue on the part of certain persons. Ap
plause from the Left. This agitation is
intended not to purify the government and
not to serve the people, but merely to serve
the ends of certain designing politicians.
To . those gentlemen I say: The present
government will not allow itself to be dis
turbed or intimidated by their demonstra
tions." Prepared to Defend the Republic.
. The applause with which-this statement
was received was stilled suddenly by M.
Deroulede, who sprang to his feet and
waved his right arm above his head, shout
ing: "Down with the parliamentary sys
tem." After the president had restored
order by repeated appeals to the deputies,
M. Ribot concluded his defense with the
words: "Those who flatter themselves that ;
there is no government in France are de
luded, and it the occasion came the present
cabinet will not hesitate to prove it. This
government is prepared to defend the re
public" The firmness and calmness of M.
Kibot's address evidently had won for him
the sympathy of the chamber, for as he left
the tribune he was cheered with excep
Even M. Deroulede seemed to realize
this and Lis subsequent speech was mild
to the point of tauieuess. Ha explained
bis plan for revising the constitution at
some length and in his peroration astound-1
cd his hearers bj declaring that he felt full
confidence m tne proDiiy ana lnieiiiKeuce
ot the ministry. M. Millevoye's motion of
"no confidence" was then put and was lost
by a vote of 3o3 to 91. Tremendous cheer
ing and applause from the Left followed the
announcement of the result.
No Danger to the Republic.
London, Dec 24. The Daily News cor
respondent at Paris telegraphs: "The pres
ent political crisis could have been foretold
at any time in the last ten years by a care
ful watcher. The only regret is that it has
been so long hidden from the public The
best course now is to apply the caustic
France is uone the worse for the expulsion
of President Grevy. 1 anticipate that the
scandals will arouse the electorate to a sense
of the value of moral character. I do not
apprehend a revolution that will sweep
away institutions which France has strug
gled for a century to secure. 1 see no sign
anywhere of a desire to rush back to any
pretender; but it is pretty certain that an
entirely new set of deputies will be re
turned at the next election unless the pres
ent deputies insist upon making examples
of their corrupt colleagues."
Late Wile of the Noted F, enchman, at
Rockford, Ills., Dec. '.A Madame
Clemenceau, the divorced wife of the
noted French duellist and statesman,
whose name is now so prominently before
the public, is at present in this city, the
guest of her uncle, James S. Teckner,
president of the West Knd Street Railway
company. The lady separated from her
husband last February in l'aris and came
here among her rehr.ives for rest and
quiet, being somewhat delicate. The lady
denies absolutely that there is any truth
in the leport that her husband killed a
man in his first duel because of undue
familiarity with her.
All His Duel About Polities.
Clemenceau has fought, she said, four
duels, all of which have grown out of poli
tics. She became acquainted with Clemen
ceau while she was attending school at
Stamford, Conu., where he was teaching
French. He subsequeuily practiced medi
cine in New York City. Mme. Clemencean
has many friends here and seems to dread
the publicity which she fears this affair
will give her. She obtained her divorce on
GASKING HAD BETTER EMIGRATE.
He Doesn't Deserve a Wife Anyhow
A Ixmg Inland Romance.
New York, Dec at. Mrs. Emily A.
Cot, of FJwood, L. I., a hamlet near
Huntington, is a bone of contention be
twei n two men, both of whom claim her as
a wife. Her first liuslmnd, George 1L
Gawking, whom she thought dead, has just
tuVued-up very much alive to find her liv
ing happily with another husband and a
child. She claimed to have secured a di
vorce from Gaskiug.buthe declares that he
was never notified of her suit and that the
decree was obtained by collusion. He will
probably apiel to the courts to get her.
Gasking married Miss Emily. Young in
1WNS. At that time he was employed by the
Cornell Steamboat company and was well
known in this city.
Dldu't Defend His Own Home.
Gasking shortly afterward became jeal
ous of Richard X. Cook, an old friend who
had become a frequent caller at his house.
Cook was a ruurried man whose wife had
deserted him, taking fci.OOO of his savings
with her. Finally Gasking left his wife
and went to France. Cook and Mrs. Gawk
ing boarded for some time at the same
place, the house of Mrs. Richard Mott, iu
Lafayette avenue, Brooklyn, and hearing
nothing of Gasking both applied for di
vorce. Counsellor George V. Pinckney
secured a divorce for each. It was largely
on the testimony of William F. Pendleton,
once a friend of Gils', ing. that Mrs. Gask
ing got her divorce. Cook and Mrs. Gask
ing were married immediately after the
successful termination of their suits.
There's a Little Money in the Case.
At El wood Mrs. Coo became acquainted
with a wealthy widow, Mrs. Snelling, who
died, leaving her $12,000. There was a con
test, but Surrogate Tuthill, of Suffolk
county, sustained the will. An appeal has
been made from this decision, however.
Gasking mealime returned to this country
and finally learned the whoie story. He
bus employed lawyer L. B. Beckley.of No.
132 Nassau street, this city, to bring an ac
tion to have his wife's divorce set aside.
