THE DEAD SOLDIER.
General William Mahona, tho Hero of
the Crater and a Confederate soldior of
great ability and true gallantry, died
yesterday afternoon at Washington,
whoro ho was stricken down a few days
ago by apoplexy. Tho record of his
lifo and description of his last illnoss is
given elsowhoro in The Times, but in
this connection it may ba well to add a
few words of common!; on tho career of
this reuoarkablo man.
No ono in Virginia, probably, had
more political enemies than General
Mabone and none stronger personal
friends. Of an iron will and Inflexible
resolution, his qualities as a loador woro
best shown as a Boldior, and it, is in
praise of his bravery in battle and his
skill as a commander that his country?
men moBt readily agree. From the time
that he entered the field as a colonel of
the Sixth Virginia Infantry to tho close
of the civil war, his career was ono con?
tinuous record of successes, earning for
him a high place In tho estimation of
Gen. Robert E. Leo as a soldier and
On the close of tho war ho devoted
himself to railroad matters, but
managed to find time to figure largely
in politics. Disagreeing with tha
leaders of Virginia Democracy on tho
question of settling the State debt ho
organized the Roadjustar party, which
elected Colonel Cameron govornor and
a legislature that sent General Mahonu
to the United States Senate. In that
body he Bided with the Republicans,
and after that decision his lifo was ono
. of constant political turmoil.
As a pioneer in a movement for which
the time was not ripe and tho condi?
tions unsatisfactory, ho was finally
forced from tho field; but not until he
had shown all tbo qualities of a leader?

FRUGALITY DEMANDS A FIGHT.
Recent cablo dispatches stato that the
Spanish governmont contemplates a
new departure In the principles of reci?
procity. Slnco tho Mora olalm has
been fully paid and Cuban war expenses
continue to roll up, the Castlllan states?

HIGH HOPES IlLHiHTED.
A Witness for the Defense Not so Import?
ant as Win Hoped.
San Francisco, Oct. 8.?The defense
in the Durrant case this afternoon sum?
moned to tbo stand two of the most im?
portant witnesses that have been called
since tbo prosecution closed its caso.
One of tho witnesses materially aided
the defense from the fact that upon
cross-examination he failed to give im?
portant testimony oxpected by tbo
prosecution. The examination of the
other witness had only just begun when
the court took a recess unt'l to-morrow
morning, but in tho short time tho wit?
ness was on tbo stand be testified to one
important faot which was directly op
posod to what tho dtfonse had hoped to
The most important witness of tho
day was Charles T Lonahan, tha youog
man whom the defenss contends was
mistaken for Durrant by Pawnbroker
Oppenheim. Lonahan, who dees not
bear a striking resemblance to tbo
prisoner, said on April 3 he attempted
to nawn a Bmall diamond ring, similar
to tbo ono worn by Blanche Lamont, at
Oppeiiholm's shop. The witneos said
that ho asked Oppenheim the same
qnestions and received the same answerB
that Oppenheim quoted in relation to
the conversation he had with the young
man that Oppenhoiro testified was Dur?
rant. Then camo tho surprises to the
defense, which counteracted nearly all
of the strength gained from witness'
tostlmony. Lenahan Bald he tried to
pawn the ring In the afternoon, while
Oppenheim testified that Durrant en?
tered bis shop in the morning.
Attorney Duprey was considerably
disconcerted by the statement of the
witness and endeavored to impeach
Lenahan's testimony by reading a lot
ler written by Lenahan to tho attorney
for the defense in which ho divulged
tho fact that he had tried to pawn a
small ring at Oppenheim'? on the same
day Durrant was said to have entered
tbo place. Too court interrupted
Duprey, howover, and lot him re&d only
such parts of the letter as referred to
tho question at Issue. Duprey then
asked that the Jotter bo admitted in
evidence and at the close of tho strus
glo over this move court adjourned for
the day. _

A motion to bo Mutlo to Dismiss tho Appeal
from the Circuit Court.
Washington, Oct. 8. ?On Monday,
tho 2Sch instant, a motion will bo mado
in tho supremo court of tho United
States to dismiss tho appeal from tho
circuit court of aopeals. which reversed
the dt clslon of Circuit Court Judge Goff,
who declared the South Carolina regis?
tration law unconstitutional. Notice of
this motion was filed with the olork rf
Iho court to day by Attornov-''

thereto is a brief *

of December, 1891, providing for tho
holding of an olection of members of a
constitutional convention to bo bold on
tho third Tuesday in August, 1893, bo
causo ho was unable to comdy with the
"unreasonabio, unnecessary and burd?
ensome rules, etc ," prescribed by the
law as a condition precedent to bis
right to register.
The notice filed to-day Is signed by
Wm. A Barber, attorney-general of
South Carolina, and others representing
the defendant, and the points on which
it is urged that the appeal be dismissed
are substantially as follows: "The
purpose, of the bill was to secure to tho
appellant the right to vote at an olection
whioh was to be held on August 20.
That tlmo has passed and the appollant
was either allowed to vote at thn elec
I tlon or he was not. If allowed to vote
his cause of action is gone. If not al?
lowed to vote no action of this court can
now securo him tho opportunity of do?
ing so. in neither case 1b there any
longer a subject matter upon which the
appeal can operate. The court is asked
(reversing the decision of the district
circuit court of appealB below) to securo
the appellant tho right to do something
on a day and a time now past. It is
now impossiblo to grant the relief
sought. Tho court is asked to express
its opinion upon an issue which no
longer exists, and upon which its judg?
ment would ba purely Bp culativo."

to report upon such c aiifros in tho ro?

that the convention labored under a
misapprehension. It was docided, with
tho concurrenco of the deputies, to namo
another commission to undertake the

The house of deputies this afternoon
had a warm debate over the question of

Tho word primate may bo the object of

as if it would finally bo adopted.
Tho deputies concurred with tho
