OF TRIED COURAGE
Ribot Will Yet save
NO RECORD OF TIMIDITY.
If He Is Not Great, He May Yet Be Great
Enough for His Oppor
Fpeclt! to Thb Mobnint. Call.
Nkw Yoek, J«n. 10.— Smalley cables to
the Tribune from Paris: The crisis has taken
an unexpected turn, and there is a new
Ministry. It is still a Eibot Ministry, but
with some very important changes. The
resignation snd reconstruction of th Cabi
net was a well-kept 'secret. It was known
to note dy this morning outside of the Gov
ernment. It certainly was not known at
the best informed embassy in Paris, an
embassy which has reasons of its own for
learning at tie ea:liest moment whatever
concerns, as this does, the French Foreign
Office. No morning paver had suggested
this obvious way out of the difficulties, or
out of some of the difficulties, which beset
the situation. Everything is obvious after
it Happened. The story was first pro
claimed in an evening paper, which signal
iz<s itself most often by a steadfast ab
stinence from truth, and so complete was
the surprise that the first remark on every
eide was that it was a "eocarde," which is
now good French for a canard. Presently
it became two that, although it had ap
peared in the Cocarde, it was true, anl the
liveliest conjectures were heard on all sides.
But the true explanation is the simplest.
The alternative which lay before the Cabi
net was collective resignation or the politi
cal execution of at least one of its members,
and probably two of there. It was thought
best that everybody should resign, Ribot
Included. De Freyciuet was saved the other
day only by the intervention of President
Cai lot, and it was known that even Carnot
could not rescue him permanently from the
consequences of bis own fault. Panama
lies behind him. It is the end of the bril
liant if not of the great career which De
Freycinet lias long hoped would end in the
Presidency. It is also a real misfortune for
France. She has nut had so competent a
Minister since Carnot organized victory for
tin- first republic. As Prime Minister, as
Foreign Minister, and in many anotcer high
office. Freycinet has shown great capacity
enough to see that he could net touch
Panama without being defiled.
Ribot's first act in forming the new Cabi
net is to appoint himself Minister of the In
terior. That is at least an act of courage,
and courage is to-day Invaluable. If Ribot
be not an ideal Minister for anxious time?,
not a Coastans, he at least has no record of
timidities, vacillations and uncertain tem
per behind him, like the estimable Loubet.
An Unexpected Turn in the Chamber
Paris, Jan. 10.— The Ministry lias just
resigned, owing to difficulties in the Cabi
net over the arrest yesterday of ex-Minis
ter of Public Works uhut ann other mat
People throng the streets and the greatest
excitement prevails. The police are out in
force Lisperslng tiie crowds.
President Caroos has charged Ribot with
tbe duty of forming a new Cabinet.
It i; undent* cd that llibot will retain the
office of Premier, but will exchange the
Ministry if Foreign Affairs for Ministry of
the Interior. It, is also reported that Lou
bet, Minister of the Interior, and De Frey
cir.pt, Minister of War, will probably not
be found in the reconstructed Cabinet.
It is opeuly charged that Ribot and Car
not were not in earnest In the Panama
prosecutions, and have no intention of bring
ing tbe bribe-takers to trial, and that (he
prosecution of Do Lsssaps, Fontane, Cottu
nn>] E ffel will be nothing more than a
farce. It is also charged that efforts are
being made to i osticne the exposure of cer
tain guilty partial until tne law of proscrip
tion has taken effect.
Although the resignation of the Ministry
cause. l widespread excitement, there was
do attempt to create disorder. The order
prevailing throughout the city, in fact, may
be nrd no doubt is due to the fact that the
lawless element well knows that any dis
turbance will be put down with a strong
band by the military.
The recess of the Chamber of Deputies
en;led to-day and the Boom resumed its
silting.*. After the usual formalities of the
opening wero complied with, Floquet was
presented for re-election to the presidency
of .he Chamber. This evoked a somewhat
unexpected and vehement opposition, and

publican group then nominated M. Cnsimir
Perier, and tie was elected by a majority of
During the proceedings in the Chamber a
group of thirteen men, proclaiming them
selves tnarchist?, gathered in front cf the
building, and refusing to move on when
ordered by the police, were arrested.
The new Cabinet organized by Ribct is:

terior; Develle, Minister of Foreign Af
fairs ; Tirard, Minister of Finance ;

Minister of War; Burdeau, Minister of

At 11 o'clock this evening it is learned
that M. Burdean has refused the Ministry

ably be offered to Admiral Gervais.

GRAY HAIRS DISHONORED.
Judgment by Default Against Count
Paris, Jan. 10.— Count de Lesseps has
delivered to the authorities a book giving
the key to the cipher in which was written
the account of the expenditures ot the
Panama canal directory. The revelations i
which it yielded are described as terrific.
It is declared, indeed, that the exposures
thus fnr made In connection with the Pan
ama canal are as nothing compared with
what is now at band.
Ferdinand de Lessen, although absent on
account of the state of his health, was in
cluded to-day as one of the defendants with
Charles de Lesseps, Fontane, Cottu and
Eiffel, and accused of complicity in tbe Pan
ama canal frauds.
The name of Count Ferdinand de Lesseps
was called amid profound silence. After a
short pause the physician's certificate that
the Count was physically unable to be pres
ent wa3 submitted to the court. The Pro
cureur-Gcneral asked nevertheless that
judgment by default be given, and the court
granted the motion.
The trial proper was opened in the first
chamber of th« Court of Cassation, as the
Court of Appeals is called, Perlvier presid

company. His father, he acknowledged,

but not for the purpose of withdrawing
money from the enterprise. In every case
Count de Lettepa had turned such
shares into money merely that he ruielit

as to the relations of the American Panama

When asked if this sum was not large for
the purpose for which it was applied, he
said, "Their assistance was valuable, and
they could have arranged for the expendi
ture of a still larger sum."
The prosecuting counsel asked several ques
tions intended to draw out that the feasibil
ity of tie canal plan was doubted by the
directors before the last loan had been ap
plied fur. Do Lesseps replied that M.
Rousseau, a competent engineer who
examined the works on the Isthmus in 1886,
bad expressed the. conviction that the canal
could be completed, provided certain modi
fications in the original plan were made.
"But Boyer and Jncquef, bo:h competent

sovereignty, but after discussion it wag de
cided that this would not be the result, as
lii jury to the navigability of stieamswas
one of the important questions concerned,
aud Congress would there.lore have the
right to prescribe penalties In tiiepremisog.
Senator Felton 6uygedtcd that the word
"may" In section y lo changed to "must,"
thereby making it imperative with mine
owners to tile with tho Government
commission a verified petition setting
forth such facts as will comply with
lh« law and rules prescribed by the
c mojlssion before hydraulic mining can
be communced. Mr. Berry agreed that
siicn au amendment should bo made. Sena
tor Stewart thought that the change was
immaterial, and there being no objection
the amendment was agreed to.
Mr. Berry disclaimed tho credit of repre
senting either the agriculturists, river men
or in mine men of California. Sen*.C were
opposed to the bill under consideration and
others favored it. but some fourteen or
fifteen prominent "valley" men hud agreed
with himself that a penal clause such as lM
proposed should bo incorporated In the bill.
Caininetti made a statement iv which he
agreed to the amendments proposed by
Sen n lor Felton, which liavo already been
printed, and to Berry's proposed amend
ment, Ho explained that section three, con
ctrniug Injury directly or indirectly to
rivers as a result of hydraulic mining, had
been very carefully worded so as not to in
terfere with the Stale's sovereignty. In
answer to Senator Stewart's Question, Cam
liietti said. that under his bill the California
State courts could enjoin miners, as at
present, ii necessary, but it was understood
and believed that the State would co-operate
with the Government in carrying out the
provisions of his bill. The State would
permit hydraulic mining if no injury to
rivers resulted, directly or Indirectly, and
he understood that a bill had alieady been
introduced in the California Legislature to
provide means for the execution of the pro
visions of such a law, concurrently with the
regulations prescribed by Congress and ex
ecuted by the Government engineers.
in answer to a pointed question from
Mills, Messrs. Felton, Caminetti nnd Berry
each sjave bis approval of tho bill With its
At the conclusion "f the reinatks of Berry
and Camitietti, the committee went into
executive session, and .^eoutor Felton gave
h full explanation of the terms of the Cami
netti bill. l\o ;a.d that millions of d tlari
per year c<u!d yet be taken out by ti:e
hydraulic process if the suspicious conten
ti ns and jealousies of the factions in Cali
fornia could be appealed. Felton said that
bis amendments were drawn nnder the ad
vice of both agriculturists and miners.
He thought that wie bill would five justice
to all classes, and whs at least a step to
pave tbe w\iy for lemslation which would
ultimately prove a gre.it hoon to California
and the Counter. He said that his amend
ments wero calculated to render river pro
tection more secure by making the provi
sions of Hit! law more explicit.
Senator Milts thought that the tnx of 3
pet cent imposed by the bill upon mineis
ought to bf surikient without requiring an
appropriation of Sis,<xo by C ngresa, which
amount Senator Stewart had dt-clared to be
in.suflH ient. flu thought that the beueii
claries of the proposed law should bear all
fetowart explained that the appropriation
of H&000 was merely to defray the expenses
of tho Government commission, and that
the expense of erecting restraining and im
pounding works was to be borne by the
miners and paid by the 3-per-cent tax
levied on the output of thn hydraulicmines.
"As I understand it," said Mills, "this is
not a preposition to remove the debris, hut
to prevent its lodemcut in the streams it
mining is resumed."
"Yes," said Stewart, "fend to re&traln tho
vast amount of debris already there, wtiich
would otherwise find its way into the
"It can bo removed," said Felton, "for
half a cent a cubic yard, whereas it would
cost 15 cents to remove it after awhile."
Senator Call termed this wise economy
and other members of the committee were
inclined to agree with him. The question
of Berry's amendment then recurring, >i-n
--ator Stewart thought it a little too harsh.
He said that heretofore pure malice had
actuated the prosecution of the miners and
cited instances of this in Pluiiias County.
Lindcr tha penalty, as prescribed la Berry's
amendment, lie nas afraid that in tho
future, as had been the case in Hie past,
there would be n disposition to abuse the
process of the law.
Faltra said that Berry's amendment was
simply a counterpart of the penalty pre
scribed against the agriculturists for inter
fering with tho miners.
Mills saw no objection to Berry's amend
ment, and it was adopted.
All the members having expressed them
selves favorablo to the bill, with Felton's
and Berry's proposfid nmeudment attached,
Seuator iitewart, by instructions of the com
mittee, reported it to the benalp. Senator*
Stewart nnd Felton am not ready to say Hint
very much good will be accomplisltrd, but
insist tint the bill will pave the way for
future legislation of vast, btoefit to Califor
nia. They believo thai the bill will bucume
a law at this Mssios.
When the President Shall Have
Power to Act.
Washington; Jan. 10.— Section 7 of the
quarantine bill as passed by the Senate in
amended form reads: *
"That whenever it shall be shown to the
satisfaction of the President that by reason
of the existence of cholera or other infec
tious or contagious disease* in any foreign
country there is serious dnnger of thp Intro
duction of the same into the United States,
nnd notwithstanding the quarantine de
fiM'sn ttw 4 Ml|«r is so increased by the in
iroductiou of perjuhd or property from such
country that the suspension of the right to
introduce tho same is demanded in the in
terest ot public health, the President shall
have power to prohibit, in whole or in part,
the introduction of persons and property
from such countries or places as he shall
designate, and for such period of time as he
may deem necessary."
An appropriation of $1,000,000 is made to
enable the President to carry the act into
effect.' Compensation is to be made for
quarantine buildings and property received
from States or municipalities, and tho ace
of March 3. IS7;>. establishing a National

ON A BROAD BASIS.
How Senators Have Approached
the Silver Problem.
Partisan Advantage and the Question
of Expediency Will Not Enter Into
the Matter at All.
Special to The Mup.niko Cai.u
Washington', Jan. 10. — The Senate
Finance Committee to-dny be^jan nn in
formal di<cussion of the silver question
that indicated thoroughly the bent of the
committee and the outcome of the preposed
effort to repeal the -Sherman act of 1890. It
developed that there was uot perfect unan
imity muong Republicans regarding the
strategic move of yesterday on the put of
Aid rich. .Sherman, although it Is under
stood that he Is opposed to such aggressive
action on the part of the younger member?,
is, however, in favor of the repeal of the
law which bears his name, and so expressed
himself on the floor of the Senate. Senator
Merrill is also in earnest in supporting any
proposition that will tend to remove the
dancer of free coinage, and he also favors
the repeal, while the standing of Allison on
tho money question is tuo well known to
ueed explanation. Paity lines were oblit
eratdin the discussion of the matter, and
attacks were indulged in by Senators at the
meeting which showtd that the proposition
is LeiDg considered upon the broad basis of
Statesmanship, rather tbun the narrow
plane of paity policy or political expedi
Representative Cate of Arkansas has pre
pnrcd the report of the majority of -the
committee to accompany the Sherman silver
bullion purchase repeal bill agreed upon
by the House Cotrmittee on Banking and
Currency yesterday. it asserts that the
circulation will be increased between 515.
--000*000 and 116,000,000 by the first section of
the bill, which provides that national banks
may issue bills to the par value of the bonds
deposited. The committee submits its re.
peal of the bullion-purchase clause of the
Sherman act with no other comments
than that tho experience of the past two
years has demonstrated that the policy en
tend upon at the time of its passage has
failed to afford substantial benefit to any
one, and its continuance is a menace to the
prosperity of the country. The committee
realizes that its proposition will stop the
increase of the circulating medium by the
issue of treasury votes in the purchase of
silver, but the. first section of the bill fur
nishes a largo increase in the circulation,
and one which in its opinion Is much safer
and mere likely to tupply the needs of the
country at large.
The committee also lelieves that the
cessation of all silver purchases by the
Government will not merely ad in the effort
to rea^h an international agreement fixing
tne ratio of gold and silver for coinage pur
pose?, but is a prerequisite to the reaching of
such an Internationa] agreement. With re
spect to the Cue amendment providing for
the coinage of t!;e silver bullion now in the
treasury into dollars, tho report says that
this will also furnish a considerable iucreaso
to the circulating medium.
The friends of the Andrew-C;ite bank
ing and silver repeal bill are confident that
they can get it up iv Ibe House for consider
ation, but are in doubt as to their ability to
bring it to a vote. They expect a special
order from tie Rule* Committee giving the
b.H ■ diiy in the House.
Xiv YoRK, Jar. 10.— Prominent financial
men in Wall street express a decided opin
ion that the Sherman bill will not be
repealed at thjs session of Congress, and
seem to have generally concluded Hat there
is more alarm ti.au I* Justified regarding

longer. The Wall-street Journal still holds
this op nion and Quotes Senator Blackburn

MURPHY THE MAN.
New York Democrats Re
THE«E WAS NO OPPOSiTION.
Coclcr^p Stood Aside and the Protest
of McClelland Did Not Amount
Special to Thh Morning Call.
Albany. N. V., Jan. 10.— The Assembly
.chamber wn3 filled wit li Democrats of high
and low degree from all quarters of the
State to-night, when the Democratic mem
ber* of the Senate and Assembly met in
joint caucus to fix upon a candidate to sue- ]
ceed United States Senator Frnck Iliseoclr.
All of the Democratic Senator* an.i As
semblymen were present with one excep
tion. Senator Canton arose and congratu
lated the members on baing in a position to
elect a Democratic Senator. He formally
presented the name of Hon. Edward Mur
phy Jr. of Troy for the Senatorial Domina
tion. At the mention of Murphy's name the
larjre audience began clapping, but this soon
gave way to cheering, which was kept up
for several minute*.
Assemblyman William M. Konan of the
First Itensselner District seconded the nomi
nation. In a speech eulogistic of the can
Leader Quigley of Brooklyn said that
since Edward J. Murphy Jr. was tho only
choice of the unterrified and Intrepid
Democracy, it was, with great pleasure that
he seconded the nomination.
Senator McClelland then made a protest.
He said that in this day and generation the
Democratic party has greater interests at
stake than the spoils of office. It stands for
principle, and is committed to specific re- '
forms in the interests of the people. He
then stated th it he would cast bis vote for
Hon. Bourke Cockran, who, he believed,
was the choice of seven-tenths "of the
Democracy of New York.
j Senator Brown seconded Cockran's nomi
nation in a stirring speech. Several other
: speakers followed, and then Senator Can
ton read the following 7 telegram, dated
Washington, January 10:
To William F. SheeJian: If my name is
mentioned in tha caucus I beg you. to say
that I am not a candidate for the office of
Senator and that nobody has authority to
present my name.
W. Boui:ke Cock ran*.
Balloting then commenced, and the Sena
torial licall showed that ail the Senators
voted for Murphy except two, who voted
for Cockran. On the rollcall of the Assem
bly all but three voted for Murphy. The
total number of votes cast was 90, of which
Edward Murphy received 85 and Bourke
Cockran 5. The vote whs read and the
chair announced the nomination of Mr.
Senator Brown immediately moved that

The Populists of Kansas Will Rule
Topkka, Kan?.. Jan. 10.— After wrangling
over the various plans proposed until after
1 o'clock ibis morning, the Populi3t caucus
adjourned, with a victory for the conserv
atives. Duusninrr, fusion Drn]osr4t, was
made the mucus nominee for Speaker, and
Ryan, fusion Democrat, for temporary
Speaker. It whs further agreed that the
State officers, contestants and representa
tives of the press be admitted to the hall.
The matter of organizing by force was
fought to the finish, and the victory of the
conservatives was sweeping.
When Secretary of State Osborne ap
pealed in the House this morning be said*,
that unless there were objections he would
assume the chair while the roll was being
called. Douglas, Republican candidate for
Speaker, objected. Dunsmorp, Populist
candidate for Speaker, said it was do
House, tf.at body not being in session. He
said the Populists wore entitled to organize
the House, and would object to those vot
ing whose seats were contested. No under
standing could be reached, and the parties
separated, each organizing its own Ilouse.
* So the fight for United States Senator is
fairly on, and ■ grave situation confronts
the Kansas Legislature. Amid the most
intense excitement and the greatest uproar
the two separate organizations were per
fected in the House to-day. The two
houses both organized at the same time and
in the same place, and both held sessions in
tlio representative hall this evening. The
Democrats held aloof and enjoyed the fun.
The House is composed of 125 members,
and of these sixty-three, or -a majority of
one, hold certificates of election and com
pose the Republican House, claiming that
their organization is the only legal one.
The Populists number fifty-seven, bat claim
that those members whose seats were con
tested have no right to participate in the
preliminary proceedings or pass upon their
own qualifications. The Republicans or
ganized with a majority and would doubt
less be upheld by the courts if the matter
goes so fur. The session is limited by stat
ute to fitly day?, and the Republicans say
they will hold the fort all that time if neces
sary to carry their point.
The Governor has not as yet recognized
either house. He has received committees
from both house?, but informed them that
he had no communication to transmit to the
body which sent them to him. He will
doubtless recognize the Populist house, and
the Adjutant-General will assist the ser
geaut-at-arms in the removal of the Repub
licans from the representative hall. They
say they will not resist the militia and will
withdraw quietly to another hall, where
they will maintain their organization. So
the matter stands.
Senator Perkin* is here looking after his
fences. United States District Attorney
Ady is in hope of getting the United States
senatorship in case the Republicans finally
capture the House. •
Tho Populists have decided to join in no
conference looking to a compromise of the
disa firemen between the two parties. Con
gressman Simpson, this evening, in an in
terview, said that the Populists /plans were
matured and that they had arranged to put
the wheels of legislation into immediate
operation to-morrow morning.
" When asked what action the Populists j
would take if the fiaht was taken to the
Supreme Court by the Republicans and de
cided against the Populists, he said: "If
the Supreme Court decides that laws passed
by the representatives of the people in
Legislature assembled are illegal such ac
tion will be revolutionary and the court
will lay Itself liable to impeachment, and
we will impeach it, too, if it takes any such

The Seuator sail he did not think a cor
ruption fund had been used in Congress in
behajf of the Panama caual scheme. In
regard to the Nicaragua canal he said:
"I have been out ol Congress a year and
a half and have spout most of the time in
Europe, so I cannot state positively what
action will be taken in tho matter. But ray
opinion is that it will be favorable. About
eight years ago, just prior to the. election of
Cleveland as I'rsidont, I took an activ*
part in promoting the Interests of the. canal
as oneuf the Committee on Foreign R la
tions. It received an overwhelming majority
but lacked four votes of the necessary two
"Strange to say, immediately after the
election of Cleveland a decided dampening
of ardor was apparent on the p.trt of many-
Democratic members who had prior to that
been among the strongest advocates of the
canal. Cleveland's adverse influence was
unquestionably brought to bear on them.
Thus you see one of the most important
enterprise* for our country ever under
taken was shelved by a Democratic Presi
dent and eight years of time lost".
"The Nicaragua canal will be finished, and
when it f«, it will revolutionize the com
merce of this State and promote its growth
hi wealth and population as nothing elso
can, in fact beyond the anticipation of
even its own people; it will give the United
States the key to the commercial situation,
making it the greatest commercial maritime
power on earth. Ju<t think of ' lie wonder

merce of England and then multiply them

to the United State* of the completion of
