FORMER BRITISH MINISTER TELLS HIS TALE OF WOE, tn a Secret Publication He Attacks Amerl cans In Public Life and Makes Sotae i Disclosures That Are Undiplomatic Was Afraid of Belrc Killed. New York, Oct. 9. Tho World today prints a long story sent from London by Ballard Smith. Tho article says: An extraordinai-y and in many respects Unprecedented publication by a British or Dther high diplomat has been quietly but amazedly discussed during the past few days among tho foreign representatives to the oourt of St. James and in higher offi cial and social circles of London. , This is a handsomely printod pamphlet marked, "For private circulation only," ond entitled, "My Mission to the United Stafcns. '81-'69 and has just been issued by Lord Sackville, who, a3 Sir Lionel gackvillo-Sackvillo West, K. C. M. G., was the English minister to Washington for the period named. It will bo remembered that President Cleveland, almost on the evo of the elec tion of 1888, sent Sir Lionel his passports bocauso of a letter written by him to an alleged Englishman in California, com menting upon the approaching election. This pamphlet is Lord Sackville'3 do fense and explanation, after seven year3, of that incident. But tho probably unprecedented part of it, and the part which has aroused very excited comment in tho circles named, is, first, the freedom of his strictures upon tho American people and American pub lic men, and second, his own expressed Indignation that the British ministry Ehould havo accepted Mr. Bayard as em bassador to this country, while as secre tary of stato of the United States Mr. Bay ard had wantonly insulted in person its accredited representative. A Secret Famphlet. The pamphlet consists of 53 pages, 15,000 words, and, I am informed, is of very limited iss.ue not more than 100 cop ies. These have been sent under seal only to leading foreign diplomats, tho higher English officials and a few personal friends. Lord Sackvillo prefaces his story with the fcllowing quotation from James An thony Froudo: "There are some practices in tho name of politics which tho historian, in tho cam of morality, is bound to condemn, which, nevertheless, in this false and con fused worii!, statesmen to the end of timo will continue to repeat." Tho lato Chester A. Arthur was presi dent and James G. Blaino secretary cf state when Lord Sackvillo came to New York in 1831. He says hs entered upon his dutie3 with greet fio'iclturJe.

Lord Sackvillo here deliberately states that Lord Granville, upon representa tions of Lord Spencer, then lord lieuten ant of Irelp.nd, and lately in Lord Rose bery's cabinet, telegraphed tho fust assist ant secretary of state saying that his.

The latter in vited him to a trip in "tho president's yacht." All preparations were made in seoret, and they spent ten days cruising In the James river, after which "it was deemed that tho excitement caused by the Irish executions had abated. " He saw a copy of Btato department to Minister Phelps, ac- cusino- him of "political cowardico." He took this offensive telegram to Mr. Bay ard, saying ho considered it a personal in sult. Mr. Bayard was "embarrassed and confused, and at last said that as secretary of state he knew nothing of any such tele gram having been sent." He was furnished with a copy cf the following telegram received by a member of tho cabinet from the Democratic na tional committee in New York: "Does the president know that the Irish vote i3 slipping out of our hands because of diplomatic shillyshallying. boeLarnont (tho president's secretary and chief wiro Duller) at onco. Something ought to be done today." Accordingly ho received his passports that afternoon, and Mr. Herbert, the sec ond secretary, who married Miss Wilson of New York, was made charge d'affaires. For sovcral moro pages ho cites in stances hostile to Mr. Bayard's contention that a diplomatic agent must be persona grata to the government to which ho i3 ac credited and recalls successive appoint ments of Keiloy to Italy and Austria. He calls Keiley "a notorious southern demagogue and wire puller." He refers to President Cleveland in bitter terms and adds, "There is no baso action which an American politician will cot resort to in order to gain an election."

After dispos ing of a number of unimportant witnesses tho defense in tho Durant case summoned to tho stand two of tho most important witnesses that have been called sinco tha prosecution closed its case. One of tho witnesses materially aided the defense from tho fact that upon cross examination ho failed to give important testimony ex pected by the prosecution. Tho examination cf the ether witness had only just begun when the court took a recess, but in tho short timo tho witness was. on the stand ho testified to me im portant fact, which was directly opposito to what the defense had hoped to estab lish. The most important witness of tho day was Charles T. Lonahan, tho young man who, tho defense contends, was mistaken for Darant by Pawnbroker Oppenheim Lenahan, who dors not bear a striking resemblance to tho nrisoner. said that cn April 3 he attempted to pawn a small dia mond ring similar to the ono worn by Blanch o Lainont at Oppenheim's shop Tha witness said that ha asked Oppon hcini the same questions and received tho same answers taat Oppenheim quoted m relating tho conversaion ho had with tho young man whom Oxpenheim tostifiod was Durant. Then, to tho surprise of tho de fense, Lcnahan said ho tried to pawn tho j ring in tho afternoon, while Oppenheim j testified that Durant entered his shop in tho morning. Attorney Duprey was considerably dis concerted by tho statement of tho witness and endeavored to impeach Lenahan's tes timony by reading a letter written by Lenahan to the attorneys for tho defonso, in which ho divulged the fact that ho had tried to pawn a small ring at Oppenheim's on tho same day Durant was said to have entered tho place. Tho court interrupted Dunrov. however, and permitted him to 1 read only suoh parts cf tho letter as refer red to the question at issue. Duprey then asked that tho letter bo admitted in evi dence, and at tho clcso of tho struggle over this movo court adjourned for the day. The court refused to admit 4ho whole letter m evidence, as some passages were devoted to tho expression of tho writer's opinions as to tho correctness of .Oppen heim's testimony. Tho remainder cf tho letter was admitted; BLOODY MINERS' RIOT. A Woman Who Sax? It Dropped Bead From Frglit. Grove City, Pa., Oct. 9. A riot among the miners at Chestnut Ridge has caused great excitement here. One woman is dead, and ono of tho miners is in the lockup in a critical condition.

NEW YORKERS FIND SOME FUN REGISTERING THIS YEAR. IN The Cltixen Who Wants to Vcta Must Give Ilia Pedigree and Description Foi Identification Men With lied Hair Gal Ac cry. New York, Oct. 9. It takes something more serious than a funeral to kill the sense of humor of the avcrago Now York er. That is why tho voters of the city had so much quiet fun with the new registry law yesterday. They enjoyed it. It re quires each voter when registering to give "an intelligent description of himself" tc tho clerks, so that he may bo identified in case of trcublo on election day. What soma of tha voters thought of themselves was quaint and curious. Early in tho day in the Thirtcsnth dis trict a fat, well dressed man of about 5C started in to register. At every question ho became more angry. Ko said ho weigh ed "over 1C0," and when tho clerks in- psisted that ho bo moro specific ho shouted: "Why in biases don't you look at my teeth? Why den't you foel my ribs, and ask me if I'm a bigamist or a Morrnoni All you pocplo need to mako you a com bination of horse dealer and insurance agent is a little hayseed and a table o; rates!" And ha strutted out in high dudg eon. Over . in tho Twentieth at ono plaoo ol registration a man with a mop of red hair that would havo roused tho most venera ble and agod bull to rage stood all the questions calmly until tho clerk, whose eyes were fixed on tho- book, queried, Color of hair?" "Green, confound you, green! Can't you see it's a pale pea green?" howled the irate subject, pulling off his hat and pounding it to pieces on the table. Then ho wanted to lick everybody present, sin gly and collectively, but was at last in duced to leave without killing anybody by tho patient policoman. Eomo Voters Got Angrry. Some voters had prepared tho answers to the questions beforehand and read them off. One man in tho Twenty-third, who wore glasses, raised a royal row when k wanted to add that fact to the description. He argued that he did not always wear glasses; that they might be broken on election day, and if they were noted the fact might thus cause him to loso his vote. "You might as well say I wear a white shirt or a black hat, " he said, and then concluded, "If you put that dowD, I'll sue you for damages." It did not go. In many of the districts tho same question about glasses was raised, and ia almost every instance sustained. Ono well known Brooklyn policeman? who weighs 37 pounds, when asked what hi s, weight was gravely replied, "I guess over 75." j "What do you moan by that?" snarled tho already worried clerk. "You weigh ever 200." "You can't provo it by mo, " smilingly replied tho voter. "Tho last time I was on tho scales I tipped them at 75. It's a long time ago, so I shouldn't wonder if I was a little heavier now." In tho Fourteenth district a well known ,an about town and an habitue of tha Hoffman Houso sworo a lurid yellow and red streak when he heard tho clerk say to his follows: "Put down gray mustache." The individual to bo thus identified poses as an Aaoni3 in tno primo oi iuo. He had beon sick socio days and had neg lected to havo the hair on his uppor lip dyed as usual. "Take that off," said he. "It'll bo black all right on election day, or I won't voto." Identified ty Ills Jag. A breezy individual in tho Tenth, when asked for marks of identification, smiled blandly and said: "Y'r oughter know this jag w en y'r sco it again, an then I voto for Tammany, 'r know." "Can't identify all the Tammany jags, " said the clerk. "Something else, if you please. There are too many of them." There wero pathetic as well as humor ous instances, in tno J? irst ward, m re ply to the usual questions, one grizzled veteran raised tho stump of his left arm and said: "That arm is missing. I left it at An- tictam." Ia tho Twenty-fourth another simply said: "I can show tho scars of 11 bullets if necessary." Neither had to answer further. The number who registered was far in excess of that of former years. There are 1,892 districts in tho city, and at 8 o'clock in tho morning that number of books wero opened by the inspectors of election and remained open until 9 o'clock last night. Last year tho registration m the city for the gubernatorial election on the first day numbered 103,812, and tho total regis tration was 09,585. Tho entiro voto cast at that election was 2 1 4, 171, or within 34,411 of tha entiro registration. Murder and Suicide on tho Street. Sckantost, Pa., Oct. 9. Edward P.
