Special Telegraphic letter. There is
more political gossip here to-day than on
'lie eve of elections. While President Cleve
land, Secretary Gresbam and party were
spending Sunday at Wilmington with Am
bassadors Bayard and Kustis, Secretary
Lamoot, Lieutenant Governor Sheehan and
others who had just come from Washing
ton were seen hen? and the wires were kept
bo busy between Xew York and Wilming
ton it was evident that appointments, es
pecially for Xew York, had been under
consideration more than foreign affairs.
Pheehan has returned to Albany and Lis
friends expect that lie and the Xew York
senators -will get their ultimatum at the
conference with the president next Friday.
Sheehan I-nI-s a Report.
Blue-eyed Lieutenant Governor Slieihiin
of course denies that the little black bag
which he carried when he cailed on Presi
dent Cleveland (Niturday contained Tam
many's ultimatum, as the newspapers had
Insinuated. With charming naivete the
lieutenant governor declares that not be
ing a member of the Democratic state gen
eral committee he'takes little or no interest
In the distribution of feiler.il paronage in
Xew York, and he further states that he
simply went to Washington to confer with
the president regarding some appointments
in Buffalo and Krie county his home. As
he will return to the national capital for
another interview on Friday of this week
the suspense will not last much longer.

The Trial of Iturtianan.
Last week was a great week for the de
fense in the case of the little Xova Scotian,
Doctor Buchanan, who is charged with
having killed his wife with a mixture of
morphine and its a.itulote, atrophine. The
prosecution is still on, but most of the
witnesses have proved of valuable assist
ance to the defense. In fact it is asserted
confidently that the original plan of at
tack by the prosecution has been practically
abandoned. All this because Mr. O'Sulli
van, one of the counsel for defense, is as
thorough a medical man as the experts.
He cross-examined so "expertly" that they

WILL CASE THAT IS SENSATIONAL.
A Countess Who Was Particular
Brooklyn is reveling in a senational will
case which will probably come into court
for trial this week, the preliminary pro
ceedings having already been taktta. The
case is sensational because of the peculiar
conditions of the will and the socUl promi
nence of the decedent, who was the Count
ess de Yandricourt, widow of a nobleman
at one time attached to the French lega
tion at Washington. The countess' estate
was not a large oue, but what there was of
it she divided up among thedifferent mem
bers of her minister's family, an old serv
ant, and a charitable institution which it
is claimed does rot exist.
Wauled a Dry Day for lSurial.
The relatives wish to have these be
quests set aside, alleging undue influence,
incapacity to devise, etc. In support of
their side of the case they cite the direc
tions as to the funeral contained in the
testimony. It was stipulated that the
casket should be of polished oak, lined
with satin; that the plates and handles of
the casket should be of solid silver; that the
burial robe should be of black silk, and
that the funeral should be held on a dry
day and that t he vault should b.j opened in
sunshiny weather only.

in at 3 o'clock in the afternoon at 115
pounds and 7,500 for Dixon and Griflin,
to weigh 1-20 pounds at noon. If these are
not satisfactory to all hands the feather
weights are invited to go elsewhere.
Petition for Carlyle Harris.
Carlyle Harris' case still occupies a good
deal of space iu the newspapers. A bundle
of petitions, bearing the signatures of 40,
000 citizens, was put into a big box in
Howe & Hummel's office, and when Howe
left for Albany last night, accompanied by
Joseph Moss, the petitions formed nosmall
part of their luggage.
