GANs & KL EIN AMSOF Tle CORRUPT An Ex.Prefeot of Pollee Says He Can Give Them to thq Magistrate. A Royallet Says That President Carnot anew Who Had Been Bribed. Exeitlang Sene Said to Have Oeaurred Between Belelch and Hers In a Bank Omge. P-arns, Dec. 22.-Floquet, president of the chamber of deputies, appeared before the Panama mnvetigating ooppittee k q-day. Bi deolare ~'mphatioagi hat hel neVer *eoeived non i from the las opan far~the esere eevle, orRy Other .re.t. te*-uayot$, rmerly 'hlater of bli ,w tk, hase summoned tq sppear r fore tie commi to explaiq She tiapent made by him that a full list of names of men compromised in the seandal had been seen by President Carnot. The committee desired to hear Yves-Gayot to-day, but he r6fusd to appear on the ground that the statement attributed to him was distorted by a spy. He did not wish, he said, to countenance proceedings that mingled President Carnot's name with the proseou tion of those implicated in the affair. Marine Fontane and Charles DLesseps. directors of the defunct Panama Canal company, were taken from Mazas prison to the office of M. Franqueville, examining magistrate, by whom they were questioned for two hours. Bourgeois, minister of injus tice, appeared before the parliamentary commission of inquiry after Floquet. He promised that the papers of the dynamite sciety and other important documents re cently seized should be oommqgioated to the commission. M. Andrieux, ex-prefect of police, said he had a photograph of a statement and account written by Baron de Reinach. This showed the names of the payees of chocks drawn by Bason de Reinsob. Andrieux wrote a list of names on a pioej of paper and handed it to Brinson, saying, at the same time, that four other names, one of a very high personage, he was prevented from mentioning by dictates of discretion. Dr. Hers had shown him documents bearing the names of 104 deputies who had been bought by the lobbyist Arton for a total of 1,3850,000 francs. Andrieux could name most, if not all, of the men mentioned in this document. He would try to obtain the document from Herz. He wished it un derstood, however, he could not guarantee absdlutely the aceuracy of the document. In his opinion Baron de Reinaoh's word was far from unimpeachable. To his knowledge Reinach began to pay personal debts with the money of tha Panama Canal company. When asked to explain hie passing men' tion of the payment of ci . to Floquet, Andrieux ex lained that E.r'e. Clrttu, di rector of the canal company, told him Baron de Remnach once spoke of Floquet's needing 750,000 francs for the secreot sor vice fund. After several discussions, Cuttn was rendered so apprehensive by what he had that he consented to give the 'govern ment 750,000 required. Heo told Reinaeh, however, the whole affair was a black mail ing swindle and might onuse trouble. Reinach responded: "No, I can say I re ceived the money to pay the advertising expenses of the comuany, and nobody will know the diffe ence." Subsequently Reinach said Cuttn was too thin skinned. Cotta seized Reinabh by the beard, dragged him from the front room of the bank into a private office, and after onalling him an embezzler and coward demanded back the check for 750,000 francs. Reinaoh declared that it was at his house and suoceeded in holding off OCttn nutil the final crash came, but part of the amount had then been paid to the goveo nment. M. Baorau, advertising agent of the Pan ama Canal company, testified that same paid newpat:ers Iby the company ranged from 400 to 1,000,000 francs for each isaue of shares. Count Caffoelli, monarchist deputy for Aisne. told the commission he could ronfirm the repo t that President Carnrt had ia list of deputies corruptly im rlicat"d in the Panama canal lobbying. T'hi lit. he said. comprised manly deputies whose names have not yet been mentioned in connection with the scandal. PIRESS ()LPNION. On thle Effeet of the Revelations Made Thursday. LONDON, Dec. 22.--The Paris correspond ent of the News says that M. Floquet's ex planation to-day amounts to an admission that he indirectly induced the Panama Canal company to spend their press subsi dies on organs favorable to the government, instead of wholly on oppositirn papers. This is fair enough, ccording to French tradition. ' "It is quite clear." continues the News correspondent, "thalt Baron de Rteinach was a malefactor whose genine for intrigue inevitably would have ruined the republic were it not en dowed with extraordinary vitality. 'the attempts of Bourgeois to protect his family from the full revelations will tnot strengthen the government." The Paris correspondent of the Daily Chronicle says that M. Andriex is evi dently bent on to, tortilg his victims and worrying the committee. lie said enough to show he noiseassed datnaging testimony affeotine influential statesmen. The Paris Correspondent of the Times oays that Andrieux's senltsional deposition gave the lmpreasion that Baron doe einach visited 11erz with the hopa of recovering incriminating memorandum, failing in which he committed snicide. sMore to Comle. PAnts, Dec. 22.-La Ihanterne says the papers discovered yesterday in the examl nation of documents belonging to the com pany that espplied dynamite for work on the Panama canal show that Deputies Na quet, Lt Guerre, St. Martin and Laur re ceived sums from Arton, the go-between in corruption, for their votes in the chamber. Le Mntin says fifteen more warrants have been prepared against snators and depu ties; that public prosecuto a in the country districts have been instructed to search the residences of aeoused p.,rons and examine witnesses for evidence in relation to charges. Immedliate Saietlfiation at Death. Naw Youx, Dec. 22.-In the Brigge case this aftonnoon Lampe took up considera tlion of the sixth charge against Brigg- that he teaches that sanctifioation does not follow immediately after death. Lampe maintained the fact that Christ, when he came into this world as the second Adam to redeem the world, was proof that man leaves the misery, toil and sin of this world behind him when he is called away by death, and that the souls of believers are at once sanctifiad.

NEw HAvrE, Conn., Deo. 22.-Selectman Alfred W. Forbes quietly announced Batur. day night that he had been married for five yeare and besides a wife he has a son and a daughter. The announcement was a com plete surprise as everybody except himself; his wife and one relative had supposed he was a single man. The wedding has seen kept secret in order that he should not be disinherited. His father, who was a well known and wealt bhy resident of the Annex, had peculiar ideas about the mar riage of his two children, and Alft ed did not want to incur his displeasure.

THE ENDOWMENT PLAN. A Scheme That Will Commend Iteelf to Owners or Cemetery Lots. At the meeting of the stockholders of the Helena Cemetery association, held last week, the trustees were authorized to adopt what is known as the endowment plan for the care of lots in the cemetery. T'he plan has been tried in Riverside cemetery, Den ver, and at other places, and has proven a great success. In brief the plan is this: The owner of every whole lot or fraction greater than one-half pays $100, and every owner of a fraction of a lot leess than one hafir pays $0 to the trustees. The money thus received is placed in a separate fund and the income trom it used to keep the lots in order. The plan has the advantage that the one payment pays for the care of a lot for all time. As it is now the payment of $8 each season only does for that time, ant when the nayment ceases the care of the lot by the association also ends. 'I he trustees of the assooiation elected at the last meeting are N. W. McConnell, Cor nelius Htedges, A. M. Thornburgh, J. J. Lockhart and Peter Winne. Tho officers n.e Peter Winne, president; N. W.

Louis, Mo., Dec. 22.-The old colon ial legs of the young men who appeared in costume at the Daughters of the Confed eracy ball are still giving the young ladies who managed that affair a good deal of trouble. A number of the young men did not appear in the minuet because they would not consent to pad their un symmetrical nether limbs; others were not so squeamish, and the padded member was there in all his glory. The young ladies held a meeting Thunsday night to audit their accounts and were amazed, not to say shocked, by the presentation of a bill by one of the young men for $5, the amoiunt he averred he had to pay for a pair of pads wherewith to adl shapeliness, grace and beauty to his calves. The bill was presented while the daughters were debating the question as to whether or not dauners of the minuet should be charged for their tickets to the ball.

Promised Front Vest Superior, Wis., ito a short Time. WEST SUPERIOR, Wis., Dec., 22.-The dis charge of Capt. Mcltea, of the Superior police force, has led to startling deveiop monte. Details of the story have not yet been obtained, but there is no doubt of its importance. For some time the United States government has been in active par soit of the largest and most daring gang of counterfeiters known in the past twenty years. For the past few weeks silver dol lars and half dollars, well executed, have been floated in immense quantities. '1 irty secret service offlees have been employed on the ease. No arrests have yet been made, but they are expected soon. Among the men said to be involved is one of t.ru perior's prominent business men.

AN IMPERtIALIST REVIVAL The Followers of the Flag of Bona. parte Beeome Very Active in Paris. They Have Prepared a Manifesto Whioh They May Give to the People. ieoyllsti and Imperlalists Jealous of EJach Other-The Movegmenu of Both Are Clepely Watched. PADs, Dee. 22.-To-day it is the Bonta partists that are. stteppinp to the front to take advantage of the diffculties of the republio. The activity of the royalists has aroused the jealously of imperialist leaders, and at a secret eonlave they drafted a manifesto addressed' to the people of Franoe, urging them to recall the house of Bonaparte to the throne. This manifesto has not yet been issued, but awaits the ap proval of Prinee Vietor, present recognized head of the ex-imperial family, now in Brussels, and the Bonapartist leaders in Paris have sent agents to that city to induce him to sign the manifesto and authorize its publication. Victor has been living in comparatively retirement recently, but has kept careful watch upon the course of events, and his friends in Paris claim that he will be found fully equal to any crisis that may arise, and while prudent as to taking a decisive step, he will be positive and courageous in noation when the step is taken. The imperialists have been canvassing earnestly for supporters among the depu ties, but not with much success. As the chances of revolution against the republi can government seem to increase the divi sion between the monarchists and Bons partists wider. Members of the two parties, heretofore on common ground as oppo nents of the republic, are now showing considerable jealousy as to which party will profit by the diffioulties of. the republic. Already this jealousy is showing itself in the strained zelations between prominent members of the right. They will attempt to strike a blow in Paris, rather than in the urovinoes. They, like the monarchists, are being carefully watched, and every move ment is reported to President Carnot, The proceedings of the secret conclave, at which the manifesto was determined upon, were known to the government almost as soon as the conclave adjourned, and the govern ment is already in possess.on of the terms of the manifesto. Not so much importance is attached by the authorities to BogapaFtists as to the mona chist agitation. The ancient royal house has still a large follqwnii in the pro vinces, as was shown drlriit thb recent visit of the countess of Par is d E' France, when hundreds thrdnged to kies her hand, and she was received at various places with all the loyalty and honor that could be shown a queen. This following could easily be aroused into a formidable demonstration that would cost much effort to suppress, and the royalist cause would receive the amypathy of hundreds of thousands of swindled Panama stookholders, who, de spite what they regard as a bastard Bona partism that trades on the fame of the great Napoleon, have learned to hate the republic, whose representatives are exposed as a party to the Panama fraud. De la Fosso writes Figaro that the par liamentary republic is ruined and ought to be replaced by a consular republic with Prmce Victor Bonaparte as first consul. The suggestion is looked upon as an at tempt to revive the empire tbrough the same process by which the First Napoleon arrived at the throne. It attracts atten tion only as indicating the strained situa tion which makes suah suggestions possi ble. The Llly Drooping. LONDOw, Dec. 22.-Mrs. Langtry is rather better. i.ever has subsided' enough to al low her to sleep. The servants are kept busy answering messages of inquiry from many distinguished persons, includlng, it is reported, the prince of Wales, through his private secretary. Several cable dis patches of inquiry were received from America. Langtry's illness has brought back several to.mer admirers, who are dis playing by gifts of flowers and otherwise, anxiety for her recovery. There is no doubt that she is critically ill, although friends have strong confidence that she will recover. In Central America. CITY oF MEXICO, Dec. 22.-A dispatch from Guatemala says the municipal elee tions, held Dec. 11, at the capital, were ex tremelv exciting. The occasion was marked by a number of street brawls, in which seven persons were killed. The lib erals triumphed. Quiet is now restored. Thb conservatives, however, are gram bling.

HIS HEART CEASED TO BEAT. But Aettvity Was Renewed by a Darlns Surgeon. NMw Yoax, De. 22,.-The medieal profes lion is much stirred, so far as it is yet familiar with the details of the case, by the story of a remarkable surgieal operation performed within a few days by Dr. Albert Sbank, of this city. James MoCaughy, aged 12, was sufferlng from "appendicitis." The trouble was caused by some foreign substance entering the vermiform appen dix. The doctor, when called, found the patient in a bad way and recommended an operation, his diagnosis showing an abscess forming around the vermiform appendix. The parents delayed the operation until the arrival of relatives, who had been sum moned. When finally ready for the opera tion, the doctor dfkeovsrsd that the abscess had just broken and pus was flooding the abdominal cavity. In this crisis it seemed clear that the boy was dying, The doctor told the relatives it was barely possible the operation might save him, but the chances were many times against it. They insisted on his proceed ing. 'The patient was aneisthetized, and as soon as an opening was made in the ab domen there was a plenteous flow of pus. At almost the same moment the pulse ceased to beat, the heart stopped, and every evidence of a most complete collapse be. tokened the presence of death. The doo tor instantly enlarged the incision, and holding it open with one hand, he poured with the other the contents of a pitcher of hot water into the abdominal cavity. In a few minutes there was renewal of heart action, and, aided by hypodermic injec tions, the boy slowly reotrned to life. The foreign substance was quickly located and removed. The operation was completed, and the boy is now on the road to recovery. A QUEER BILL. Touching the Genersal Subject of Hypno tism and Mesmerism.

THE CHOLERA. Continunaton of the Plague in Europe May Come Over. WAsBENoTox, Dec. 28.-The continued prevalence of cholera in Europe excites ap prehension in administration circles. The hope entertained that the dread diseasehad been extirpated is dissipated in the face of reports of new cases, and the conviction is forced upon the government officials that, as predicted by many scientists, the dis ease will reappear with increased violence in the spring. The United states consul at Hamburg to-day increased the uneasiness by sending the following cablegram: "Yes terday, two cases, to-day four, one death." Commenting on this, Assistant Secretary Spaulding said the situation is far from reassuring, and was in effect notice that this government must not let down the bars or relax exertions to keep the cholera from gaining a foothold in the United States.

Seconds and Spectators Stampede for Trees and Other Places of Safety. The "Marderous" Weerk Then Stpped, "Honor" Berng Iattleed-Aa Arbi trator Who Settled a ueastlon, Peans, Dec. 22.-Gen. Felix Gustav slaas ster, military governor of Ptris and a vet eran of the service in Crimea, Italy, Mes foo and Africa, refeard to eot as an arbi. trator between Deroulede and Olemen oeao. The idea of arbitration was ridi culed as an evideneo of cowardioe on the part of Deronlede, who suggested it, and tauseier himself is said to have uttered an emphatio remark which showed his view of the case and put a stop to any idea of using the old soldier as a bouffer to prevent a col lieion. On iausefer declining to have any thing to do with the affair, Deslaudes was appealed to, and proceeded to arbitrate in a way to bring things to a climax. He de cided that Deroolede and Clemencean should have an opportunity to take six shots at each other. To come as near as five paces he considered too murderous and altogether contrary to the customs of French duelling. Be held that the com batants should be placed twenty-five paces apart, with the privilege of advancing three steps during firing. The one that happened to be perforated first to have the opportunity of stating, if able, whether his honor was sufficiently satisfied. If not, then firing should continue until the six shots or combatants were exhausted. Al though not made an open stipulation in the programme it was understood that Clem encean was not to get out an extra of La Justice announoing the result until the other newspapers were notified, and Deron lede was to have the privilege of having a camera and reporter on the tpot to take snap shots, provided Clemencean chose to do so. In the event of fatal result dying words were to be faithfully reported. Then they went out and fought according to the terms specified and neither was hurt. Both combatants bade an affectionate farewell to their weeping friends before departing for the bloody field of honor, and diatribut ed locks of their hair to their sor rowing admirers. Arrived at the duelling ground, twenty-five paces were measured and the surgeon prepared instruments for immediate use. The antagonists appeared pale but resolute. They faced each other, received the weapons from the bands of their seconds. At the word "fire" both pistols were discharged slmultaneously, ' he bullets flew wide of the mark, the spectators hastily slid down from the ad. joining fence end the seconds moved a lit tle farther off before the second round. Acain the weapons of death barked but didn't bite. Friends rushed forward and exoreased the hope that honor had been satisfied and that the murderous encounter should be closed. Both, however, demanded another shot, and solicitous friends hastily retired to a distance. Again there were two puffs of white smoke and a sharpvribra tion, which was the only result of the third round. .The seconds then insisted that the mur derous work must end, and the principals reluctantly accepted their decision. The duelists were overwhelmed with congratu lations for courage and coolness. DIAMONDS AND JEWELRY. If You Want Anything of This Kind for Chrlastua See A. Goldberg.
