In bis history as a Judgo was his connection
with tho habeas corpus in tbo caso of Mrs,
Snrratt.
Tbo Judgo showed great moral courago
in this matter, for which tho country has
honored lilm. When Washington was iu a
ft rment of excitement over tbo as3assinatlon
of tbo Prcsldont, ho Issued a writ of habeas
corpus, on tho petition of Mrs. Surrttt,
directed to Major-General Hancock of tho
army. Mrs. Surratt s counsel waltod ou
tho Judgo at his houso after midnight and
asked for tho writ. It was furnlshod them,
rctuAahlo tho next day at 10 o'clock, Tiio
next day tho writ was returned without
tho body of Mrs. Snrratt. Tho answer of
Msjor-Ucncral Hancock was accompaniod
by an order of President Ami row Johnson
suspending tho writ. Judgo Wyllo was
shocked at tbo conduct of tbo Prosldont In
suspending tho maudato of tho court, nnd
was not slow to denounco tho action Iu
strong torms.
In a conversation with somo lawyors re
cently tho Judgo said that ho roallzod tho
position ho put himself In by Issuing tho
writ. Ho said that tbo next morning bo
foro ho bad gotten out of bed thero was a
vigorous ringing of his door bell, and his
body servant Informed blm that tboro was

soldiers down stairs who wanted to seo
him. Ho expected to bo dragged oil" to tho

Tho question of a successor to Jutlga
Wyllo Is now moro discussed than It has
ever been slnco tho fact that Judgo Wyllo
would retire becamo known. Thoquostlou
will not be definitely settled for somo days.
Tho talk is quite general, howovor, that
Hon. William M. Merrick of Maryland will
bo Judgo Wyllo's successor. Mr. Morrlck Is
an undo of tho Hon. R. T. Merrick of this
city. Ho was on tho bench horo ou tho
old court. Ho Is about O.i yoarsof ago, nnd
for that reason many pcoplo thiuk that ho
will not bo selected.
Tho Attornoy-floncral was to-day asked
by Tin: Cnrna reporter about tho matter
nnd ho said : "I can only tell you this.
Tho pcoplo 'who say that ho has beon se
lected know 0oro about It than I do. I do
not oven know as yet that Judgo Wyllo bas
officially given uotlco that ho doslros to ro
tire from tho bench. I do not think that
any selection has becu oven Indefinitely
niaJo.''
Tbo rcportor subsequently met tho Hon.
Richard T. Morrlck and asked blm if It
wcro prohablo that his kinsman would bo
appointed.
"I havo ovory reason to supposo so," was
tho reply, "All my Information is in that
direction, aud anothor thing when Judgo
Carttcr rotlros I thiuk Mr. Morrlck will bo
mado Chlof Justlco, and that Auditor
Poyno will bo appointed Assoclato Justlco."
"You really think that will happon?'
"I certainly supposo so," ropeatod Mr.
Merrick with asmllo, "aud I havo no Infor
mation to tho contrary. It is tho right
thing to do and Prcsldont Cleveland gonor
ally docs tho right thing"
AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
Judgo Wyllo called at tbo Wblto Houso
shortly after 1 o'clock this afternoon, bar
ing previously called upon tho Attornoy
.General and notified him of his willingness
to rctlro. Judgo Wyllo was shown Into tbo
library and received by tho Prosldont, ro
inaining a few moments. After leaving tho
room JudgoWyllo said that ho had submitted
a letter to tho President, informing him of

They prcsonted n potitlon signed by

was untrue Ho know from his prl
vato advices that Nihilism was spreading,
but It is truo that littlo Is being dono openly.
Tbo present policy of tho Terrorists Is n
quiescent ouo. Tho Czar is oagor for war,
hoping thereby to divert tho attontlon of
tbo pcoplo from nihilistic views. It Is
truo that attention will bo dlvortod but
not sympathy. Tbo Nihilists will pos
itively not tako any action against tho
Government whilo tho war lasts. They
feel confident that the Czar's Government
will ruin itself by tbo war and will como
out of It crushed aud bankrupt. Nihilism
therefore reserves Its powor. After tho war
It may strike If so, that will probably ho
its final and dccislvo blow.

Ciiitic'h standpoint, tho chances aru a lit
tlo in favor of tbo homo nlno's winning.
Thero seems a disposition to slnr Powell's
playing. Ho has not been batting as strong
as some, but certainly as well as Gagus,
and, lu tbo opinion of most of tbo spec
tators, bo Is a better pitcher. His Holding
at light has beon good, and, at times,
brilliant. If ho was released his loss would
ho felt.
Tha boys utterly failed to do anything

in regard to tho rccont game of polo be

to the EniTon op the OniTiO! I notlco an
nrtlclo in your paper rolattvo to a game ot
fn lo betweon the stars and Nationals, in wtilcu
t was stated that tho game rosulted lu a vic
tory for tho Nationals. I beg leavo to orroct,
througli tbo columns of your valuable paper,
tho misstatement. The Stars, of which I havo
tbo honor to bo captain, played tho regular
rules, and, wnonevor a clear aud pilpatilo
foul cccurieil, claimed tho same, Tho Na
tionals, on tho contrary, wHbod to play ina
como regardless of any rules wnatover. Too
referee, Mr. Lancaster, who for throo years
was an active membor ot tho renowed l'rovt
denco team, allowed tho fouls claimed, and
decided that tho gatno resulted In a tie, tho
score being 1 to I. It seems to me that It tho
Nationals would send ror tho Loaguo rules
tbcy would thou uuderstand moro fully the
many points to a game, and that It Is not al
ways necessary for tho ball to bo struck
through the coal to consilium a goal, as, ac
cording to all ruling and prooodonce, turoo
fouls, other than when tha ball loavos tha sur

Tho Cancer Evldontiy Spreading:.
Nbw York, April 23. "Tho dlsoaso In my
father's throat Is spreading all tho tlmo,"
says Jcsso Grant. This is also tho belief of
Ihootbormcmbcrsof tho family and of all
tho attending physicians. Thoro was nogro.it
cbango In tho General's condition yostor
day, but it was thought ho was a littlo
wcukcr. Tho doctors say, prlvatoiy, almost
ivcry day that tho cauccr Is steadily ap
pleaching a fatal stage. It bas not been ur
rcitcd by tho recent general tmprovomout
In tbo system.
Ono of tho doctors said, a fow days alnco,
that tho cauccr must provo fatal within
two months, unless it acts contrary to what
has been medical experience nnd observa
tion for centuries. They do not onoourago
tho plans which aro talked of for taking
Iho General Into tho country. Dr. DougUs
called at tho houso nt 10 o'clock last nUht,
Intending to roturn homo, but after uxtm
lulni; tho patient's throat, dismissed his
carriago and remained all night. Tho (ten
crnl showed fallguo during tbo evening
and sorno npptchons!on was foltnt tho la
tiring hour for his comfort, though none for
his safety during tho night.
now he parsed the niciht.
General Grant did not got settlod for
tho night until about 1 o'clock this
morning. IIo recolvod fivo minims of mor
phino and after 1 o'clock ho slept at inter
vals. Tho soro at tho bxso of
tho tonguo appeared angry last
night, and tho restlessness may havo beon
tho result. Between six nnd eight o'clock
this morning tbo patient slept most of tho
time and when ho nweko and his throat
was examined thero wore moro favorablo
Indications than yesterday.
Wbou Dr. Douglass left at 8.30 a. m. ha
said tho General had passod a vory qulot
night, though his slcop was somowhat
broken. So far as tho physical condition
of General Grant is concerned, he might
with safely bo rcmovod to tbo mountain
or sensiilo to-morrow, but no chango wilt
bo mado until tho (list of July.
That tho General will survlvo tha sum
mer is tho belief of thoso in position to
judgo of tha probabilities. Ho will, it is
thought, pass tha summer without ro
lapse, but tho recurrence of cold weather
will, perhaps, eflcct a chango that It is not
desirable to anticipate at this tlmo of Im
proved conditions. Dr. Douglass will re
turn to tho houso nt 0 p. m.
