Losroow, April 27. The Bow Btreet Foils Court was filled with artist to-day when the case ot E. J. Oox against Mr. Rudolf Blind, the painter, was called. The case was Mr. Blind's last picture. "The World's Desire," which was seen while on exhibition by Mr. Cox and was complained of by him as Indecent Mr. Blind says that the picture is his masterpiece, the result of his life's study, and an artlstlo work ot tho first merit. in which opinion he has been supported In the dally newspapers by the letters of several em inent artists. At the opening of the trial the picture was, brought In by two porters and placed where Mr. Yaughan. tho Magistrate, and the witnesses could see it- ..,., It represents a beautiful young woman standing undraped. whllo she attracts to her worship the poet, tne warrior, who is yielding his sword, and the ootogonarlan.

Mr. Blind said that "Tho World's Desire" was the hlghost of his artlstlo conceptions und the result of years of study and labor. Several other artists testlflod to the same effect Mr. Keith Frith said nobody denied that the pic ture was beautiful, but in its beauty lay much of its Immorality.

Everybody at first looks for tho chief work of the President Sir Fredorlck Lolghton. He has chosen a singular subject this year. The toxt. nn it may in this case bo callod, is from Revelations, xx.. 13: And tho sea gave up tho dead which wero in It and they woro Judged, every man according to his works." A "Last Judgmont" from Sir Frederick was hardly to bo expected, and some of his mostdovout admirers turned away from tho gloomy and awful scene, disappointed and shocked, but the work has beon skilfully and strongly done. It cannot bo denied that It is very striking in Its effects half ghastly and half ludicrous. Many gazed upon it fascin ated by its combination ot horrors: those who disliked It at first took another look, and nn ono who saw it can forget the impression It rr nlr Aft Sir John Mlllals, from whom much wna expected to lift this nightmare from the mind, was disappointing in another way. He sent soma landscapes, not what his frlonds liko from him most. They aro generally pretty and pleasing, nothing more. A picture which drew general attention was Stanhope Forbos's "Tho Forging of the Anchor." It was surrounded by a largo and admiring throng during tho evening, and is bound to be popular.

The stately Spelr residence Is reaohed by a path leading off from the IUdgewood road and winding between beautiful pines until it reaches tho crest of tho hill. The young man had three brothers, Franois. Jr., It. W and Lewis Bperr. The brothers said yosterday that one ot his Intimate friends, Graham Srower, a son of William A.

There was a report and immediately follow ing this my mother rushed Into tho room. Drown nnd Dodd exclaimed. 'Ollles hurt' He was unconscious when we went in, and after about threo hours, without once re gaining consciousness, he died. "Wo do not know just how it happened. Tho two frlonds say thoy did not seo tho re volver when it was discharged. It must have happened in ono or two ways. Tho floor was of hard wood.pollshed andsllppory. My brother at the tlmo was standing on a rug in front ot the bureau. While ho was handling tho revolver tho rug probably slid, he slipped, and tho revolver was discharged. It was on the floor when wo went Into tho room. It may bo that as he was removing his clothing and at ttiB , same tlmo holding tho rovolvor in his hand tho hummer might have been caught In somo wny and the weapon discharged."

In his book on " The Mammoth and tho Flood," Mr. Howorth odvunces a now theory with regard to tho remains of mammoths ami other large animals In tho soil of Siberia. All over this great plain, whorover tho ground Is frozon hard, nro f jund mammoths and othor animals preserved very fresh, so that tho wolvos and bears can feed upon their remains. Theso mammoths have boen found from tho eostorn border clear to tho Obi Itlvcr. They havo beon found under conditions which mnko itcortaln that thoy could not havo lived, un less tho surroundings nnd cllmato had. at the time they existed, been entirely dillHreutfrom the present condition's The remains ot tho plants on which thoy fed are also found, ami southern contemporary shells aro discovered with the remains pointing to climatic condi tions which no longer exist. Mr. Howorth believes that this vast plateau is ono of tho most recent foatuies In tho phy sical goography of the world, and that Its rapid elevation cnusod tho tremendous change ot climate which has enabled tho bodlos of those great beasts to lie preserved intact as wo find them. Hosassthnt unless those animals had beon frozen Immediately after they died, nnd remained frozen to this day. they would cer tainly havo decayed and' disappeared. A single Siberian mimraer sun would havo de stroyed thoni oomplotoly. It is known that further east tho bonos ot great animals havo been found 17.000 feot above tho son uudor conditions which Falconer declared to be ab solutely incompatible with their modu of life.

April 12. thero havo boen stories told of what at re mondous upheaval ot publlo opinion against "ring rule" It was that dofeatod the Demo crats. Mayor oleot Wansor's majority scraped 3,000. The Uepubllcnns have asserted that tho Democrats, by means ot repeaters, polled 3.000 fraudulent votes, and that thereforo Waneer's majority was 0,000, though the town Is nominally 1,500 Democratic Thoro have br.en sevoral stories told about those ro-, pcators, and about tho way'thollcpubllcans got tho upheaval. Tho most remarkable one came out yesterday. Three or four days before the election a rough-looking man. apparently an Italian, met somo Democratic workers, and without Introduction, said: " Would you liko to havo somo rapeatora?" Tho workers lookod at him In sururlse. "That's right. Would you liko to haro somo?" tho man continued. "I've got fifty over in Now York and I can lot you havo 'ora cheap. Only S3 a voto. No vote, no pay." The man was taken aside and he repeated his offer. Ho said ho would nrrd his men with quill toothpicks, bo thnt thoy would bo known to the workers, nnd if thoy got a list of names to vote on thoy would voto, but thoy must havo S3 a vote. Ho svas vory particular about the price, and made a lot ot inqutriesnbout ability to pay. Aitor considerable haggling a bargain was struck. The man was instructed to have his voters on hand at 0 o'clock the morning ot election. Thoy would bo met at the ferry by workers, who would tnko thorn and fit them out with ballots, namos, and polling places. .To be roc ognlzed thoy must carry tho toothpicks In their mouths when thoy reached tho elty. and each mnn must havo a sufficient supply of toothpicks to last him nil day. On tho U n clock boat from New York olectlon morning fifty mon, it is said, eucn chowlng a null! toothrick, wero passengers. Thoy wero divid ed Into small partlos. each party headed by a guide, and finally all found their way to a sa loon. In the back room of which they wore fit ted out for their day's work. They went out, two or throe nt a time, and sauntered around until thoy came in sight of a polling place, . Then thoy consulted their lists of names and wont in. The Itepubllcans had shrewd challengers at the polling places, butthcy didn't appear to soo that thero svas anything susplolous about a man with aqulll toothpick, oven It ho did clnlm the name of a dead man. It svas noticed in somo ot the pre cincts that the Ilepubllcnn challengers ac tually turned away whon n man with a quilt toothpick appeared. Theso strangers were alwnyn grooted familiarly by tho Democratic workers, and it was seen that their votoB woro polled asexpeditlouslyasposstblo. When they hnd gone away somo of tho Democrotlo work ers would be delighted. Things went smoothly all tho morning. Hardly a precinct in tho lowor part of tho city, but was visited by tho quill toothpick gentle men. It wns in ono ot tho precincts down near tho ferry that tho regular ltepubllean chal lenger got hungry about noon, und leaving his booi: containing the mimes of voters in eharao of a green man. ho went homo to dinnnr. Ho dldnt say anything about quill toothpicks whon he left Tho first threo voters after he was gono were toothpicks, and tho first one of the three elatmod tho namo of a dead man. Tho green ltepubllean challenger didn't find the name in his book, nnd shouted. " I olial lenge that voto." "Oh. very well." answered the Demoorntlo worker. "I know tho gentleman; he will swear his votn In." "Ito I won't oithor." Bald the toothpick mon. "I didn't como here to bo Insulted, nnd I don t intend to voto when I am insulted. I guoBS it tno cause of lionost government can stand it I can." With that he dropped tho ticket he had in his hand on tho floorand walked out "I wonder how that fellow was going to vote, any way." askod an Innocent election official as he reached down nnd picked up tho ballot. It read: "For Mas'or, Fetor K wan sor." It was a Ilopu oilcan ticket. A Democratic challenger saw It and turned pale. Nearly tho whole fifty toothpick gen tlemen had voted In that precinct. At tho noon reeoSs there was n conferenee ot workers from all the precincts nnd tho story was told. It was too late then to do anything. The re peaters had got In their work. Tne Democrats admitted when the votes wero countod that they had been outwitted. Tho quill toothpick Rang came from Philadelphia to work for tho epubllcans. Thoy had bamboozled the Dem ocrats into hiring Uiem, and tho story goos that they pollod upward of a thousand votes, not ono of whlcb was for McDormott Tho idea is credited to a Pennsylvania ltepubllean. 9ood Work Djr Y. 01.
