a week or so ago by Kennedy who represented
himself to be John Ransom nephew of the
late Charles Ransom who carried on the
gambling business In New York and Sar
tORa John Ransom told Hiss Mansfield
that he was In desperate circumstances and
he desired to borrow a hundred francs
or so in order to go to Mont Carlo
and try his luck Miss Mansfield lent
him the money and In a few days he returned
with one or two hundred franc notes wrapped
around a large roll of white paper and paid the
debt He said he had won several hundred

Lord Lonsdales feat in driving and riding
aent miles In four different heat in some
thing under one hour on snowcovered ground
attracted some notice In sporting circles but
a genuine Interest was taken out of the per
formance when the match with Earl Shrews
bury fell through The blame for the break
down ban been variously apportioned tfut
as Shrewsbury twice postponed the match
forLonsdalesconvenlence the latter had little
right to Bramble when Shrewsbury declined to
race upon the umpires declaring the road un
fit Lonsdalas communications on the subject
wero couched in a tone rather discourteous
even bra British peer and the aristocrats up
port Shrewsbury fn declining not under the I
circumstances This afternoon i raral maxls
trate granted a summons against Lonsdala for
furious driving in a public road sad b w
have to appear In answer to t charge en alit
Saturday Lonsdal by the way divided
Shrewsburys forfeit of lo among three char
ities of Belgate where the drive occurred and
a London fund for disabled oa driven
The Imbroglio at Belgrade grows worse
dally The regents closely bound to exKing
Milan by their ow Interests as well as by
pledges are seriously embarrassed bJ his
presence in Bervla So lon as be remained
away and kept silent the violence of the Queen
and her friends defeated itself but his appear
ance at Belgrade and hIs vehement attack
upon Garashanine his former Minister have
alienated the sympathy with him which was
giowing up among the people As one of the
regents said lately the King seems driven by
a Greek fate to damage his own cans and
dynasty While here in London Milan fre
quently declared his belief that the attack
mode on his life in the cathedral at Belgrade
three years ao by the widow of Col Markovlr
was Inspired by the Queen and that Gara
shanine was privy to the plot This seems to
have become a fixed idea with him though
nobody else sees any reason font Be said last
week In Belgrade to a friend that Garashanine
was bound to the Queen by this criminal com
plicity Doubtless he oelteves tla but I no
body else believes It his persistency in charg
ing It must Injure him with the country
rThe refusal of the Court at Belgrade to take
proceedings against Garashanine for bin
newspapers attack on tbe exKing Is the first
symptom of the public reaction against his
Majesty He Is making partisans for Queen
Natalie In Bervla r much as George IV
mae partisans for Queen Caroline In Eng
land These will increase in number when tbe
full report of the Inquiry mode Into the death
of Helen Markovlo and her accomplice in
prison Is published This report Is making
now by Judge Pautellch Pautellch was Min
ister of Justice In King Milans Government In
1888 As a member the highest court be
conducted the Inquiry referred to and he In
tends now to tell t the whole matter without re
serve That Helen Markovle deliberately I
smothered herself Pautellch asserts and also I
that Helen Knltyanlue her friend and a very I
beautiful woman was found not strangled as
the King asserts In his letter to Oarashunlne
but hanging from a window bar In her cell
She was an open follower of the Knrnaeorco
party and no friend consequently eIther
of Queen Natalie or of Garashanine While
the regents would gladly see Natalie leave
Beterade King Milan is making It difficult for
them formally to expel her This difficulty is I
further increased by the fact that Pasitcb the
actual Premier Is known to havo promised tbe
Empress of Russia in Bt Petersburg that he
would prevent extreme measures being taken
against Queen Natalie Pasltoh was treated
with great distinction In Russia both by the
Czar and Czarina The Empress for some
reason Is greatly attached to Queen Natalie
and having given his word to her on this sub
ject Fatiitch would be put In a awkward
position were tbe regents to Insist on expelling
the Queen The Archbishop ot Belgrade also
bound himself In like manner to the Empress
and he Is consequently quit miserable over
the existing situation i
It Is now announced that Pasltch accom
panied by the Flminot Minister will go to
Russia when the Sknptscblna rises partly
about this affair should it not b previously
settled and partly also to arrange tbe future
relations of Bervla with Russia
The Servian finances are much embarrassed
The Berlin financiers have not Arranged the
new loan and it li I DOW proposed either that
the Servian loan shall be covered by a large
Russian loan or that Russia shall in some
form guarantee tho sum needed to carry on
the Sen fan Government In either of
there events Bervla would become prac
tically a Russian dependency The Min
ister who surrouU King Alexander

and the failure to end the Karageorg diffi

It Is certain that the fall ot Crlspl and the
mortifying fallings ot the advances made by
the Emperor William France havedlstnrned
the confidence hitherto felt by Austria In the
solllltyof the Triple Alliance with Italy and
Germany The Impression too sedulously
propagated by Russian agents that Mr Glad

Austria In the existing status That Im

both for King Milan and Bervla had he accept

Charles Stewart Parnell la not doing himself

whether his cause Is making much progress
in Ireland He has this week drawn up hIs
American manifesto and he line sought to
rouse a fictitious interest in I by playing one
newspaper against another as to which should

that he has made no friends and not a few
enemies Then he tried to arouse curiosity b

has leaked out that he fled on Wednesday

Theiqaslstorin of Monday night reminded
Amerieaiafln London ot the New York blizzard
of tr e M It began soon after 6
oclock A hurricane blew and snow rs and
when the f theatres closed ninetenth 0 the
cabs had sought shelter and the remaining
tenth were charging exorbitant fares for short
distance The result was that hundreds of
ladles and gentlemen were obliged to walk
home long distances through a foot ol snow In
a blinding storm while others were compelled
to In hotels and friends
star I 101 Id houses
The blizzard was general In southern Eng
land and northern France Somerset Devon
and Cornwall were visited with particular se
verity From many places In the two latter
counties there has been no communication of
any kind since last Monday and how the p
ple fare there Is only a matter of conjecture
The record 1 ta shows that 115 lives have
been lost and thousands of cattle and sheep
Railway lines are still blocked and the
English people have undergone the
amt novel experience of being
burled In snow drifts for twentyfour
hours The railway officials working with
almost superhuman energy to clear tracks
nave taken tbe desperate expedient of
lave taln desprte expient throw
ing some ot their finest rolling stock which
had become derailed the
bcme derie over embankments
in order C get a passage through for their
trains SomerMt on one local line where
train was hopelessly burled in snow the
travellots made their way across a weary
waste to the only jamhonse within reach
There were twentythree victims and only one
spare b but by general consent this room
was given up to a young couple who h only
that morning received the blessing of the
Church upon their union One incident of the
storm was an adventure of travellers by the I
Club train to Paris The Duchess of Edin
burgh was one of the passengers by this train
and I was one of tho small boats that was
waiting at tbe pier ut Dover to cross the
channel to Calais The Duchess refused to
cross oy this steamer and all the passengers
bad to wait two hours while a larger boat was
made ready When I finally came to the pier
the Duchess decided not to cross at all and
remained at the Dover Hotel al night with a
majority of the Club traIn travellers
TbosA who did cross had an experience they
wilt always remember The ordinary time of
crossing under two hours but on Monday
night the stormiest known in twenty years
the steamer was fourteen hours beating about
tbe channel The London Times makes this
Incident the text for an article on the storm
In which a better harbor for Dover Is advo
cated and closes thus
The bUzzl d or Monday which nearly lost
us three mal steamers and which cawed
raooh inconvenience to a Royal and Imperial
Highness may have been a blessing In dis
guise I It stirs UP tbe Government and
Parliament and Local Harbor Board at last to
perform tbelr obvious duty
As I anything that caused much Incon
venience to a Boa and Imperial Highness
could be a blessing in any disguise I
Tbe Ivmnt sentiment Is much the
Mntmlnt II laDe as
that which animates the Telegraph comments
upon DOyly Cartes performance of The Gon
doliers before the Queen at WindsorSays this
journal Mr Oartl may not only b congratu
lated on the royal favour which has been extended
tended to him but also on the manner In which
he has shown his appreciation of the honour
Carte showed his appreciation of the honor
by refusing to accept payment for the performance
formance The dar commenting upon the
fact that the Queen has commanded the
company of the Garrlck Theatre t appear at
Windsor next week says
What mOlt of the theatre managers are
bursting to know Is whether the Queens Iud
dun enthusiasm for the drama bee been in
spired bJ the special merits ot The Gon
doliers or by Mr Cartes refusal to take any
payment on the ground that the honor ot per
forming before her Majesty was reward
Mr Beverley Tllden nephew of the late Sam
uel JTIlden one of the leading American
dudes In London has fallen upon troublous
times His apartments at Old Bond street in
Piccadilly one of the swellest and most magnificent
nificent In London were this week sold out by
the Sheriff The articles sold Included many
valuabe paintings and much rare brlc braD
all of which went at ridiculously low prices
Tilden who Is i but little over SO and has been
In London ten year Is not to b found about
his usual haunt and his friends wonder what
has become of him
The bonds and shares which are Included In
the claim ot the representatives of the late CoU
McMurdo In the Delagoa Bay and East Afri

sum of the claim against Portugal bJ the
United States arenow In process of collection
for deposit with the United States Government
There is a very general Impression that the
BnrkePrilchard fight at the Albany Club on
Thursday night was fixed Men who knew
that Bard alias Ablngdon a ruffianly young
Crceftus who hired a gang of roughs to break
up the SlavlnHmith fight was backing Burke
were surprised that he had only one or two
very small bets on his man and that most ol
Balrds friends had wagered heavy amounts
upon Pritchard The fight itself looked very
muon like acting too Burke get all the best
of I In tbe first round Pritchard not scoring a
point In the second round there was a change
about and Pritchard knocked Burke down
twice When Burke was finally knocked out In
the third round b lay on the floor and squirm
ed until the ten seconds allowed him to rise
were over and afterward seemed all right
again Mitchell asked Burke before he left the
ring If the fight Was square to which he replied
Yes I was fairly beaten I swear bJ my
wife and child that I was honestly licked
Burke says that he will now retire from the
ring for good Whether Prltahard is really a
wonderful man remains to be seen when he
moots jrltzslmmons
The engagement Is announced today ol

PouanKKEPMK March HAl last week both
here and at Albany efforts were made bJ the
lawyers In the case to bring ubout a comprom
ise between Vassar College and tbe next ot kin
of John Guy Vassar to prevent contest of that
portion 050000 of his will which gives the college
The contention of the next ot kin was that
the bequest was illegal because Vassar Col
lege canot under Its charter receive 1 in
come of more than 40000 a year The appeal
on the construction of the will was to have been
argued In the Court of Appeals last Thursday
but it was not reached
Last Thursday night State Assessor Jamoa
L Williams attorney for one of the next of
kin Homer A Nelson attorney for the will
and Robert E Taylor one of the wii
Trustees of the collogemet In a room at the Del
avau House in Albany and mad snotneuffort
for a compromise They were sucoeMiuf and
a settlement was agreed nixm on the oasis
that the college should pay the eighteen bolts
two new ones having turned up thetUeOOO
named in the first compromise proposition
This agreement was carried out late this
afternoon in the office of the executors in Mar
ket street Thirteen lawyers were present
The final negotiations lasted lal day ptllent
M there were seated at a long table in the
office Joseph Fettrecthof New rprlc attorney
for Caroline Vassar Henry M Taylor of
PouBhkeepBle attorney for Matthew Vassar
2d Cyrus Swan attorney for Vaaar College
and wlllnrd Dean Treasurer ol Vassar Col
leer Behind them sat President Taylor of the
college and standing In groups about them
were the other lawyers
The executors of John Guy Vassals estate
handed to Treasurer Doan of the college a cer
tified check for I20UOOO after which Mr Dean
made out eighteen certified checks for812097
each all drawn on the armors and Manufacturers
turers Bank or this ely He laid them In a
pile before him and as Cyrus 8win called out
each lawyers name the lawyer stepped for
ward and reeehed his check each having pre
viously signed I release for his client pr
Thus the muchvexed question came to a
final settlement Both sides are satisfied with
the result The settlement will leave Vassar
Colleeo out entirely in the argument before
the Court tOI Appeal and will Iriment t tecol bror
lair nhniit EF04LMO
During the talk this afternoon Frank Has
brouck attorney for the Vassar Orphan Home
said whether jocosely or not that be would
settle with the next ot kin so for as the proposed
posed Vassar Orphan Home was concerned by
giving them twentyfive per cent of the 700
100 set apart by Mr Vassar for that institution
Hut hI added thy wont consent they
waRt the whole
Tho main argument in tie Court of Appeals
on Monday will b on that particular point
wi p1rtoular
The objections to the legacies given point
orphan asylum me that they are made de
pendent upon tho Incorporation of an asylum
By the Legislature with antborlty to take the
gifts for the purposes stated in tue wilL te
Them was of course no orphan alum In
existence at tbe time of the death or John
Guy Vassar The next of kin contend that
this contingency of the Incorporation of the
orphan asylum vitiate tbe legacies for the
reason that their venting Is made dependent
upon time and not noon lives in being at the
death of the testator as the statute against
perpetuities requires
Every lawrer In this city and many elsewhere
believe that tbe next of kin will succeed In
breaking that part of Mr Vaasars will and if
000 they more do the eighteen next of kin will get 170

When yesterday the jury brought In a vr
diet of not trnllty against six of the Italian o
trial and disagreed a to the other three a
howl of indignation was heard The press
unanimously denounced the verdict and de
dared that alas Jnrhad been bought TAe
Grand Jury had already found Indictments
against two men charged with tampering with
the jut and other indictments were 8 td
The jurors did understand the public
juror notndlrtad Iblc sen
timent and were surprised at the public Indignation
dignation Mr Bellgman the foreman
dlaatlon Ir 8ellman lorma ex
plained that the jury bad found its verdict
because I did not tellers the State witnesses
but his explanation was hailed with derision
The jury stood twelve for the acquittal ot
Hsoheca Enoarcada Matrazo the two
Marebesls and Bagnetto and nine to three
for the conviction of the othen
NIne of the jurors regarded with suspicion
the three dissenting jurors and one of them
expressed the opinion that these jurors were
bouhl for throughout the trial they expressed
their intention to bring a verdlot of not guilty
The excitement over the verdict reached fever
heAt by night and three four
nlahl ad thr or secret meet
ings were held to consider the situation
The trial of the cave had oost the city tOO
and lasted for over a month and yet none of
the prisoners had been convicted The general
feeling was that a new trial would result in
the conviction of all the
al men Widespread
threats were beard and nearly every well
known citizen was approached with the Ques
tion whether be would join an organization to
avenge the law
Boon alter the assassination of Chief Hen
flesHy a law and order committee was ap
pointed by Mayor Shakespeare to take charge
of this case and to Investigate the murder and
116000 was appropriated for that purpose by
the City Council The committee showed a
disposition at first to resolve itself Into a vig
ilance committee but better counsel prevailed
largely though the Influence ot the
thouah Inuence news
papers and the committee agreed to let tho
law take its course but with an understanding
that In case tho law failed they would resort to
lynch law
h committee met yesterday after the ver
dict Tbe first proposition was to hold a mass
meeting at Cay statue last night but the lead
ers became convinced that this would have a
bad effect a it would be impossible to control
a mob at night I one should be formed It I
would get out of the hands of the men who
should lead and become dangerous to the iii
A proposition was then made that a body ot
chosen men should proceed to tbe parish
prison at 2 oclock in the morning and force
open tbe gates I was not thought that much
resistance would D ottered a only a few
deputy sheriffs would be on duty These wet
known to b friends ot Honnessy who would
not resent the mobs Intrusion
Thirty or forty picked men offered their
for otend ser
vices but It was finally decided that such work
might cause bloodshed of innocent citizens
and that it was better to act In daylight A
call was then drawn up by E H Farrar a
lawyer and President of the Committee of Law
and Order It was short and read a follows

decided on was held on Neville street fifty
citizens being present There were also a
large number of guns on hand which the men
present were told would b distributed t
those who needed them this morning These
gum It Is understood came from the armory
of one of the State militia companies
After the publication of the cal for A mass
meeting It was well understood that there
would b violence The men at the head of the
movement are men of courage and determina
tion and I was known that I they went down
to the parish prison to take It they would take
It at the con of life The fact that the call bad
been Issued hiked but last night about mid
night and was very generally discussed f the
barrooms At an early hour this morning
was universally conceded that there would b
an attack on the prison today and the only
question was whether the authorities would
make any effort to suppress It and whether the

Governor would order out the militia The
M or did not detail the police and the Sheriff
did not swear In deputies protect the I

the prison would have cost a great I

capable of being easily protected and fifty

A large portion of the men who had promised
to godown and capture the prison were mem
bers of tbe militia and it was generally under
stood this morning that in case the Governor
called out the militia to do duty he would find
no men rat serve It was also known that
in cue any serious resistance was mal at the
parishprison the mob had artillery belonging
to one of the Independent military companies
which it conldand would u to batter down
the gates
teI was also w understood that the polO
would not fight t f the murderers and
would welcome their lynching Flnalry it was
knownDut the Sheriff u oouM aol er
would mot find asn who would be willing to
act as deputies and that there would be only
the usual number of eight orten men on hand

The newspaper this morning denounced
the jury bnt opposed the mass meeting and
tried t quiet the mob but I was evident that
nothing could stop them and that there would
b a lynching of the prisoners or a bloody riot

from tbe people stationed at Bt Charles street
