that every gambler was a *rood soldier II wss a

Home, Nov. 27.?King Humbert Mas charged
Signor Giuseppe Zanardelli. president of the
Chamber of Deputiea, with Ihe formation of a
Cabinet. The selection ol' Zanardelli for the
Premiership was urged strongly by General
Nlcotera, who conferred with the King this
morning. For Minister of Foreign Affairs Nico
tera recommended ex?Premler Crtepi. He ad?
vised thal the Cabinet bc kepi as clear as po.n
siblc of all Kadical inlluences.
Giuseppe Zanardelli. soldier, lawyer. 8tate*man
and one of the greatest orators of the Italian Parlia?
ment, was born of respectable parents in Hresela.
in 1?'J9. He studied In the public schools and the
university, until about nineteen years of age. In
184S and 18iy. he voluntarily fought for liberty
against Austria, in the Tyrol, cove-ring himself
with glorv at Pastel Tobllr. and at Ihe slepe of
Mantua. After tl..- defeat of the Italian Arm;,.
he went to Pisa, where he was graduated In law.
He then returned to Brescia, but was never per?
mitted to practise hts profession in that city on
seconal of his persistent refusal to y'eld allegiaaes
to Austria. He supported himself, his mother and
ulsters by Klvln* lessons to law students, mean?
while conspiring with th, patriots of Lombard] ant
Piedmont for the unity of Italy. In IBB, Victor
Emmanuel and Cavour Rave him th.- commission
to revolutionize Brescia. This he did successfully
and. after the unity of Italy was accomplished,
he was elected a member of the first Parilamen*.
represmtlng the constituency of !?eo.
when the Progressive partv went tnto power, on
March 18, 187?, Zanardelli entered thc peprtUsCab
inet as Minister of Public Works. He then pre?
pared his scheme of the great railroad system in
South Italy. On March 28. 1878, Benedetto ('aimil
became Premier, and appointed him Minister of the
Interior, which office he retained until December
ll of the same year. In !**> he compiled Italy's
new Electoral law, hy which J,?nfi.f**i men acquired
the right to vote. He was recalled to the Cabinet
by Hepretls, and appointed Minister of Justice,
which office he retained after Crlspl assumed
power. After his new Electoral law had la-en tri?
umphantly passed, he devoted himself to the com?
pilation of th.- Commercial Code and the Penal
rode, the latter judged by the most eminent Euro?
pean Jurists to be a perfect work of its kind When
t'rispi fell. Zanardein voluntarily retired. One year
ago he was sleeted president of the italian chant.
ber of Deputies by a unanimous vote.
No man In Italy ls more popular and more re?
spected than Zanardelli. Politically he represents
the Progreoalvi party, th* aim of which is to make
the Menarche more democratic. His selection for
the Premiership will be approved by Germany and
Austria, -md w 'ii be favorably accepted by nance,
for which nat,on he entertains a profound sym?
pathy. In his policy with the Church he will as?
sume a tlrm attitude for civil and national rights,
but will ael rather upon the defensive.

Bight Indictments were found against each of

Herman Jantaen, Walter J. Lee, John Ireland
and Davis S Sanford, three of whom made

has gaven counts, covering the seven deposits.
Bach of tin- Indictment! regards tin- transac?
tions from a different light; the distinctions are
so finely drawn that only the l railed legal
mind can grasp them. The directors are ac
eiis.-il of receiving deposits, of aiding and abet?
ting the receiving of deposits, of receiving the
deposits as principals, of recelv'ng them us
agents, .ind so on. The alleged offences are all
misdemeanors, punishable with Imprisonment

There ls still another hatch of Indictments.
These are against seven director.-i, Hlaut, Bel

Mr Nicoll said last week that when the (Hand

he would muk;- good Illnure Ind' M^nwii lo
the bank. It was no doubt, to bax ol 'hlmann
testify on this point that Mr. Nicoll sated him
i from indictment for being Implicated in the
' fraudulent insolvency of the bank. Uhlmann was
j arrested with the other directors on that oom
I plaint. Mr. Nicoll was asked if this subject
! would be referred to the Grand Jury to-day.
, He replied:
"The present Grand Jury will adjourn on
| Wednesday, and will have no time to give to
any feature of the bank case. There are some
fifty or sixty" defendants In prison awaiting Its
action, and it will also consider some complaints
made by Dr. Parkhurst. Therefore, the Unter
myer matter will have to lie over until next
month. I to-day received a letter from the re?
ceivers, in which they explain why they did not
let me know sooner than they did of their dis?
covery that criminal offences had been com?
mitted. They say that their lawyer. Mr. Cnter
myer. was out of town from August 12 to Octo?
ber 1, They say that any talk about giving the
directors Immunity from criminal prosecution
was based on the understanding that the Dla
j trlct-Attorney would have to assent to any
agreement to make lt of value. They say they
are ready to explain their conduct to the Grand
Jury at any time."
T,ofral proceedings were begun yesterday
against John Y. McKane and half a dozen other
residents of Gravesend, including Justice of the
Peace "Dick" Newton, for contempt of court, in

Judge Barnard on behalf of \V. J. Gaynor
against the election inspectors and police officers
of Gravesend to prevent their interfering with

the affiant reached Gravesend he saw Justice
of the Peace Newton on the highway. ISO feet
from the Town Hall. He commanded the party
to atop. He had others with him, some of them
uniformed policemen. The pupers were shown
to Newton, and n copy was served on him.
Newton turned his back and said: "I don't

Washington, Nov. 27.?The majority of Uta
Committee on Ways and Means, after tolling In
secret more than two months, to-day graciously
consented to submit the results of Ita labors to
the minority, and also to spread them before
the country accompanied by a carefully pre?
pared written statement and argument In de?
fence of the bill. This statement was furnished
to representatives of the press associations even
before the bill Itself was made public. Chair?
man Wilson and his colleagues seemed to realise
that the bantling was about to be subjected to
the buffetings of an unsympathetic world, and
they were anxious that the excuses for its exist?
ence should be heard before Its features could
be studied and Hs deformities exposed. Thia
statement is substantially what the written re?
port of the majority of'the committee, which le
to be submitted to the Housr> of Representatives
after that body reassembles, will be, and In that
sense lt is important. In some respects the
statement ls true, and in others it widely misses
the truth, and it ls calculated to mislead every
person who does not take the trouble to In?
vestigate the facts 'or himself. The trouble la
that the bill which lt ls sought to defend and
apologize for ls so bad, so utterly wrong and
vicious in theory and irretrievably bad In fact
and in detail, that any statement in support
of it must necessarily be misleading and full of
faults and errors.
The bill is a long one, and time will be required
to analyze Its provisions and compare them with
the existing law, but certain general features at
once attract attention. As has been repeatedly
asserted In these dispatches, every specific rate
of duty has been wiped out as far as practicable
and ad valorem rates have been substituted.
This alone ls enough to condemn the measure.
In the metal schedule specific rates are retained
In only two out of sixty-eight paragraphs, and
the same thing is true in a greater or lesa de?
gree In all the other schedules except those re?
lating to tobacco and liquors. In the statement
he gave out to-day Chairman Wilson said that
specific rates had been discarded as far as prac?
ticable because they were d-ceptlve and would
not be tolerated If expressed In percentages, and
he mentioned the duty of 8 cents on 100 pounda
of salt, which he said was over 80 per cent ad
valorem, as a case in point. Well, the majority
placed salt on the free list, but rice, upon wblch
the existing specific duty of 2 cents a pound la
equivalent to about 95 per cent, ia retained' on
the dutiable Hat at a specific rate of I cent" s>
pound, which la equivalent to about 47 per cent
Again, aome of the ad valorem ratea fixed by tho
majority of the committee will be higher than
existing specific rates unless the new rates cause
undervaluations, as will probably be the case.
Tor example, the majority proposes a duty of 25
per cent ad valorem on blacksmiths' hammers,
sledges, wedges, crowbars and track tools of Iron
or steel. The existing specific rate of 2?4 cents a
pound is equivalent to about 10 per cent ad
"The boldest Innovation of the bill," saya
Chairman Wilson, "is the large free list of raw
materials." An examination of the addltlong
proposed to the free list will persuade every?
body to agree that the "Innovation"' is of the
boldest, whether or not they agree that coal
and coke, cotton gins, cotton ties, mowers,
reapers, iron ore. salt, sawed lumber, wool,
binding twine, copper in plates, ingots, bare and
pigs, bad ore when disguised as silver ore,
ploughs, harrows. luise rakes, harvesters, grain
drills, hatters' plush. Max, hemp, tow, various
chemicals and many other articles are properly
classified and described by grouping them under
the head of "raw materials." The articles
which it is proposed to add to the free list aa
"raw materials" yielded a customs revenue of
about $13,500,000 In UM. The following tabla
shows the natiies ot the articles, the existing
rates' of duty and the amount of revenue de?
rived from each article in the year ended June
