I.OCAt STOCKS. Transaction on tho Washington Kx chango Tho Situation, Tho business of tho local stock board Saturday was in volumo not much be yond the usual avcrago of transactions. For five shares of National Bank of "Washington stock 475 per share was paid. This is a falling off from tho high figure realized several months ago, when 585 was not an unusual prico for this valuable stock. Theio isno special reason for this decline, excopt that sev eral lots wcro forced on tho market, and the dealers, realizing that tho stock had to be sold, let tho prico go off to securo it as low as possiblo. In tho salo of llftcen shares of West End National Bank at 03 an advance of half a point was scored over tho previous bid of 92J. The closing bid was 02, tho offer ing at 93. For twenty two shares of Ecklngton Railroad stock 72 was paid. This stock has receded from about 03, tho prico it obtained when tho bill to extend tho lines of the road by adoublo track through G street to Fifteenth passed tho House. Subsequently, wheu tho Senate amended tho bill io as to limit tho valuable privileges granted to a space of thrco years only, tho stock fell back to about 70. For soveral weeks tho bidding on Washington eas stock has been nomi nal. On Saturday a 111 tie lot of but 3 shares sold for 435. Tho bid stands at 48. with a small offeritig at 45. Tho bills recently introduced In tho Somite "by request," proposing that tho Gov ernment purchase tho Washington Gai Works and that one million dollars bs appropriated for tho purposo, has occa sioned some llttlo apprehension in thu minds of holdcis, especially non-rosl-dents, who are unacquiinted with the tricks of Congressional legislation. But Washington peoplo, familiar with the methods of stock jobbers and lobby ists, regard this apparent effort to deprcclato this valuable property with both amusement and contempt. As tho stock and bonds of. tho company at their par valuo amount to $2,000,000 and tho franchiso and plant would probably bring $10,000,000 under tho hamraor, tho insincerity of tho proposal, to buy tho Washington Gas Works with a mil lion of dollars, is at onco apparent. Thcro Is still a disposition making to depress the price of Electric Light stock. Possibly in a few days those who are waiting to cct it at 110 may bo accom modated. On Saturdar ten shares sold for 112 Jand ten moro for 112. At 112, oven at tho present dividends of 8 por cent, on 100, tho Btock will yield 71 per cent. There is no Graphophono stock on tho market. Tho (Jflerlngs on tho lioard nro only made to register low quotations. In this way 50 sharos were sold at 13, CO at 13 and 25 at 13 and 25 at 13. Tho clearing bid was at 13 nnd tho last offer to sell was of but 50 shares at 14.

Mr. Plumb introduced a concurrent resolution, directing tho Secretary ot tho Treasury to Increase tho Treasury purchase nnd coinage of silver bullion to the maximum amount 'iulhorl7.od by tho act of February 28, 1878, and gavo notlco that ho would ask for its con sideration to-morrow. On motion of Mr. Ilawloy tho Son ato then proceeded to consider tho IIouso World's Fair bill. Tho only amendment reported from the Senate. Committee is tho insertion of a now section providing for a naval roview in Now York harbor in April, 1893, and for the unveiling of a etatuo of Chris topher Columbus at Washington. Mr. Vest opposed tho bill, protesting against tho assumption that tho judg ment of tho IIouso was coercivo on tho Senate. Tho fact that tho olty of St. Louis had been an aspirant as a slto for tho World's Fair was a post-mortem procccdlncr, and ho did not intend to Introduce ghosts to dis turb the tranquility of tho city of Chi cago. He had always opposed all leg islation looking to an exposition in 1802 and the law should not bo passed which called it into oxlstonce. Ho did not beliovo that tho people of thc-Unlted States favored any such ox position. Tho agricultural peoplo of the country had neither time nor money to give to a national circus such as was proposed. Mr. Stewart opposed tho commltteo amendment for a naval roview at Now York, etc. Mr. Chandler favored the amend ment. In tho IIouso. Mr. Doncy of Ncbnska Introduced in the Home n resolution onccrnlnj sliver, similar to that Introduced in the fc'eniito by Mr. Plumb.

In the Senate Mr. Gorman introduced the petition of A. J. Brown and forty- eight others and Mr. Iligglns that of S. C. Clarko and fourteen others favoiing the removal of the Bal timore and Ohio depot and tracks to a place north of II streot. Tho action of tho Senate In recom mitting the IIouso bill to buy a part of the triangle at Ninth street and Penn sylvania avenue is logarded as virtually killing that bill and postponing for this session, if not indifinitcly, tho building of a citv postofllco hero at tho National Capital.

Tho suggestion that tho club intends to strike the name of tho great and only Quay from Its roll of honorary mem 1 ers unleRs ho answers tho chows of the New York World and New York Post Is repelled with a flno show of In dignation by Republicans, while Dam. ocrats say scornfully that tho club hasn't got tho nerve to do anything like that.

He Will Tell Them How Agricultural Depression Can Ho Itemedlod. It is understood that Secretary Rink is about to issue an address to the farm ers of tho country explaining how tho depression in agriculture can be reme died. Ho attributes the prescntstatc of affairs In part to carelessness In culturo, nnd says that in theso days of world wide competition a successful farmer must bo as well trained and careful in business as tho storekeeper nud his equal in intelligence nndgeueral educa tion. Tho Secretary also thinks that the farmer does not study tho market re pot t as carefully as he should, and rec ommends that he avail himself of tho infoi motion supplied by the Agricultu rin'Department. IIo thinks that farm ers thould not acquiro moro land than they can piofltably cultivate. After touching upon tho questions of farm mortgages, transportation, tho middle man, gambling in farm products and combinations to control tho market, thu Secretary makes a long argument in favor of higher duties on farm products. IIo gives tables to show that our im ports of agricultural pioducts amount to $200,273,738, tho greater part of which, ptobably $250,000,000, might bo, with proper encouragement, pro duced on our own soil. He thinks that the ptoblcm can bo solved by the impo sition of high rates of duty onngilcul tural products. DUBtU'S LITTLE GUN. Mr. I) uli out 8hh It Wan Fired nt Him With Deadly Intent. There is a warrant hanging over tho head of Captain John A. Dublo, who resides nt 810 Missouri avenue. It Is claimed that ho is a traveling arsenal And too dangerous to havo at large. On Thursday last tho Captain entered tho stable of James A. Dubant, who keeps a cab in tho alley in the rear of Dublo's house. Tho latter objected to tho keeping of a cow there, and tho owner of tho stablo told him to go homo and mind his business. Dublo did go home, but ho got his revolver and seeing tho head of Dubant peering over tho wall, ho blazed away, tho bullet striking tho wall in closo proximity to Dubant's bead and chipping off a piece of tho coping. On Saturday night Captain Dublo was cruising around with a double-baneled shotgun, but did not use it.

TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS BAIL GIVEN THIS AFTERNOON. iludco Illnahnm'fi Interesting Doctslon In ft ltnro Cnso Further Conllno mont Might Kosult ratnlly AI1I0 Arguments by Defendant' Gounsot. Charles E. Klncald's nrray of counsol were beforo the bar of the Criminal Court this morning at 10 o'clock, tho time set by Judgo Bingham to glvo hbi decision as to whether tbo defendant should bo admitted to ball or not. The court room was crowded with thoso who hud come with the expectation of seeing the prisoner, but they were dlsip pointed, for it was not deemed neces sary that ho should prcsont himself In court on this occasion. Much discussion had been indulged In between members of tho legal profession as to whether bail would bo granted on tho ground of Judgo Klncald's Illness or not, nnd there seemed to bo much difference of opinion. In conscqucnco of this, con siderable interest was centred In tho de cision by tho attorneys, It was 10:30 o'clock when Judgo Bingham presented himself and lie pro cccdcd at onco to glvo tho decision, which was in substanco ns follows) "Tho ground of tho motion for ball Is that tho closo confinement in jail will result disastrously and perhaps fatally to tho dofendant, who Is charged with a capital offense. It is of llttlo Importance to tlio (jourt ns to 1110 antecedent stcic ness of tho defendant or tho cause. In cases of this description tho Court must refer to tho prcsont and im-q meuiato future In this caso tho afllda-1 vlts show that Mr. Kincald has a voryV weaK physical constitution nnu nas oeen atlllcted with many serious illnesses.

Bo causo of his being charged with tho highest crime known to tho law tho ex ercise of discretionary power by tho Court is allowed nnd tho law says that tho defendant may bo admitted to bail. I have come to tho conclusion if Mr. Kincald can glvo the bond necos fin y to -guarantee his appearance for trial to grant tho motion. The best tcstl mony ot the wituess under the appli cation came from men of undoubted ability and integrity, and the testi mony had not been contioverted. Therefore-1 think that it is but fair to allow the defendant ball. Mr. C. Maurico Smith, General Gros venor, Judgo Wilson and Senator D.in W. Voorhees all stated that whon It enmo to fixing tho amount of bill they w ould leavejtbatcntlrely with his Honor, tut, of couisc, would like to havo It as leasonablo as possible. Judge Wilson said that personally Mr. Klncald's finances wero limited, but ho was rich in friends, and ho felt satisfied that ho could furnish any reasonable amount asked. He understood that the highest amount asked for was $25,000. Juugc liogo seemed inclined to suli. unit to whatever Judgo Bingham said should bo the amount. Judgo Bingham placed tho bail at 1520,000, and oidercd that tho defendant ho brought into court this afternoon at 3 o'clock, at which timo ho would ap piovo his bonds if they wcio acceptable. Mr. Kincald was taken out of jail at noon to day and placed in custody of Deputy United States Marshal Spring man. His appearance indicated tho satisfaction ho folt in being given his freedom and an oppoitunlty to aid his crunscl in defending him against tlio Indictment for murder. At 3 o'clock J. R. Yountr, R. J. Gvnne, Fiank A. Richardson," David R. Wind sor nnd John Paul Jones presented themselves in tho Criminal Court and wcro accepted ns responsible for tho $20,0'00 bond required for Mr. Kln cald's appearanco for trial. Mr. Kincaid walked out of tho court room, and his fiicnds consider his ad mission to bail an important victory on tho icry threshold of tho case. A DISOIIDUKLY UOUSK.

She had pre viously been arrested on a charge of 1 mining an unlicensed bar. The officers jesteiday found tho house filled with cliFoidcrly men and women, aud there was enough beer in stock to run a sum mer gatden in Alexandria. Alice appealed for leniency, but tho judge said she received tho monoy that hilongedto the families of haid-work-ing men, and that it was such places as beis thnt was tho means of luring young tills who wero In service to their ruin. "Your sentence will bo four months in tbo Dl-trkt jail. I pioposo to so.i if somo of theso places cannot bo broken up." was tho judge's sentence.

O'DnniiMI, It Is Claimed, Hud no Con mctluu With timlrliili rutrlota. Nr.wYontc, April 21. A special to the Herald fioin Spoknno Falls, Wash., relates fevers! incidents in tlio life of Patrck O'Donnell, tho slayer of Catoy, the informer. Tho Herald correspon dent claims that O'Donnell had no cim ncclion withihe Irish patriots nnd that his meeting with Carey was entirely ac cidental, and finally that ho killed Catoy in self-defciiip. For two or threo years previous to 18SI1 O'Donnell was In tlio service of a cnttlo company near Bozeman, Mont, Ho made frequent visits to Ilozcimin, upon which occasions ho usually drank a good deal nnd played faro. Ho often spoke of having friends In South Africa nnd said ho intended to visit that country some day. Flnnlly, In the spring of 1883. he left Bozcmnu. tclllni his acquaintances that ho was bound for Africa. IIo had $050 in cash in his possession. On tho train between St. Paul and Chicago ho fell in with somo gamblers, who fleeced him out of his monoy. O'Donnell had thoso gamblors arrested at Red Wing, Minn., and after laying around Red Wing and St. Paul for several weeks ho succeeded in net ting ills monoy back from tho swindlors. Ho immediately went East, and ou" July 4 took passage on the steamer Kin fauns from Philadelphia for Capo Town. At Darmouth Carey and his family wero smuggled aboard this ves sel. The two men becamo acquainted and associated familiarly together on the boat. Finally tho men cot Into a dispute, the nutcomo of which was tho death of Carcv. O'Donnell was takoti back to London, 'where ho wns found guilty of murder and executed. The prosecution claimed that O'Dounell was in tho servico of tho Irish patriots and that ho murdered Carey as a mat ter of revenge, on account of Carey's having betrayed tho Irish cause. Thcro seems no doubt, however, but that O'Donnell's prcsenco on tho same ves sel with Carey was purely accidental. I'KESIDISNT NOCK'S D12ATII.

THE CRETAN CIVIL WAR THE FIRST MUSKET SHOT MAY BE FIRED TO-DAY. ltotoltlng Against Turkish Tyranny Arrangement for thu Liberal Union Club llantiuct Interesting Nom I'rotu Foreign Countries. London, April 21. Thcro is overy reason to believe that thu first shot ot a now civil war will be fired in Crete to day nt AmbclloH, whero nil tho prepa rations for such an event havo been made. Tlio Cretans are being deliberately driven to desperation by the Turks, with a view to underdoing tho freedom pained iu fifty j ears of struggling anil to restoring tho unlimited Turkish rulo of the last century. Tho Turks had tho advantage of being nblo at tho Do Sinning of last year's disturbances to put tho Cretans In tho wrong, nnd at the same timo to gain a mtlltary hold upon the Island. Tho powers nro em barrassed first because they cannot contest the right of tho Turkish Gov t rnnicnt to repress what was plausibly represented as an Insurrection, nnd secondly, because strong pressure on Turkey might upset tho existing com binations. Tho Turks have boforo ap pealed to Russia for help, nnd might do bo again. Tho powers nro rendered even moro cautious by their own present crounlnit into two camps and by tho dread of precipitating a conflict between themselves. But this very hesitation involves tho greatost risk. Tbo Turks will probably bo unable to conquer the Cretans. In tho struggle of 1800 08 Turkey spent $50,000,000 and lost C0.000 men without succeeding. If a similar effort should bo again required Turkey can make it only upon condi tion that she has no distractions clso whero.
