Bniler In Trouble? Walter Phelps on Blaine, Etc* 8pecial Dispatch to Thi Evxning Stab. New Tore, April 26.?Out of the results at Utlca the followers of faction are still trying grimly, but In vain, to extract comfort. The only persons thoroughly satisfied are the independents, and they are making as much of their success as though they feared it might be elusive and was to be enjoyed in full measure at once. Three members of their orSanimation are delegates-at-large, Messrs. White, ooeevelt and Packard. They claim that the fourth member Is with them, although not of them. It is hard to see how either Arthur or Blaine can make terms with these men. The Independent organization has virtually declared against both candidates. Resolutions making such a declaration outright were ofTered at a recent meeting, and would have carried had not the Pennsylvania auxiliary threatened to bolt. The need of preserving a harmonious front, rather than lack of votes to carry the resolutions led to their being held over. Roosevelt, their leader In convention, has an old Bcore, on his father's account, to settle with the President, and the young man is also hard-headed against the Maine recluse. Packard Is president of the young men's club, of Brooklyn, who recently dined President Seelye and applauded Carl Schurr. Packard's opportunities are too roseate to allow him to fly In the face of this record. Andrew D. White's purposes are beyond question, and as much Is claimed for Mr. Gilbert. The outcome might have been worse, no doubt, In a general sense; but In regard to the great factions it only leaves the battle to be fought over again at Chicago. ?en. Grant's Washington butler, Emlle Jourdan, and his wife are at legal points. They are French, and she is pretty. Emlle's duties were too confining, and Madame had to have recreation. A sportive liveryman put his horses and himself at her disposal M'sleur "caught on" in time, and made sundry charges, which led her to threaten to go to her mother. Lately he spied her behind a spanking team on the boulevaijL with the liveryman as comE anion. Considering that he had been dreaming of er for several months as fh Europe, this discovery rather stunned him. Now he has filed papers for divorce in a Brooklyn court. Jourdan was employed as butler In various families In Washington for Ave years after Gen. Grant left the White House. Since 1877 he has lived here. in to-day's Evening post there appears a letter from William Walter Phelps In defense of Mr. Blaine. It will, no doubt, be taken up greedily by the Blaine newspapers, and hurled back at assailants vigorously enough between now and convention time. The Post has pursued Mr. Blaine with almost cruel persistency, and Is thus made the vehicle of his defense. Latest Foreign News by Cable. kkvolutionary movement in spain.

Nkw York, April 26, Wall street, 1:50 p. m.?The Post says:?The stock market was apparently supported for about half an hour this lorenoon, frv?m 10:15 to 10:50, but with that exception was weak, and the decline assisted by the hammering of the bears and room traders. Reading and Jersey Central was not so weak as yesterday, but the rest of the general list was weaker. Northwestern and St. Paul were made the special points of attack in the forenoon, a variety of rumors about the Issue of new stock by the former, etc,, being circulated for the purpose of alarming legitimate holders, and In which purpose they were, to some extent, successful in forcing some long stock on the market. The bank statement was not as unfavorable as was anticipated, and after this began to be understood the market was steadier, though the prospect of higher rates for money within a month still hangs over the market as an unfavorable influence. Tne market for railroad bonds was again weak and lower on a small volume of business. Tbe ITIarkets.

Yesterday morning, as stated in The Pta*, Mr. Philip Wallach, the jeweler, reported to the police that seventeen gold watches, valued at $700, had been stolen from a safe In the residence of Alfred M on rote, No. 805 D street northwest. Monrote In employed by Wallach to repair Jewelry, and last Thursday evening after he stopped work he put thiwatches Into an Iron safe and locked the safe, Ti v w?tcnes were rtolen after dark. Detectives Rait ana Block to-day recovered the watches, hungup in a chimney over Wilson's second hand store, corner of 8tn and D streets northwest, and arrested Frank Monrote, son of the watch repairer, about 18 vears old, and Joseph Roberts, about 15 years old,* who was formerly employed by Monrote In the repairing business. The boys were locked up on the charge of grand larceny. After being taken to the station, Koberts made the following confession to Detective Block: "I had been reading the testimony of Horace ??Tan. alias Llttte Horace, in the trial of the exaetectlves. and at once thought that I would like to figure in the same way. About two weeks ago I distance beyond Union town. In company with Monrote, and dug a hole in which to bury the stolen Jewelry. After waiting the two weeks we concluded to perfect our arrangements on Thurs"V-. Accordingly I went to Kelehefs stables, on 8yi street, and hired a horse and buggy, while Monrote went into the house and procured the watches. After getting the horse and buggy I drove to the corner of 8th and D streets, where I waited jor Monrote, who soon came across the street with the watches, it then being about 8:80 o'clock p.m. we then drove out to where we were to bury the watches, and being unable to Hud the hole we returned. I took the watch<js and hid them In the chimney, after delivering the team." Monrote denies having any knowledge of the stealing of the watches, but admits taking the carriage ride wit h Roberts and Irvln Cox, saying that ne became frightened, and when he got the other side of Uniontown he came back. Frank Monrote was released on ball this afternoon. The Prize Eaufa, public school pupils who received thk 8. p. c. a. prizes this afternoon.

This morning an interesting case on the construction of the landlord and tenant law came up before Justice John T. C. Clark at his office on 12th street. The parties were Samuel A. Drury, plaintiff, against Frederick Schlosser, defendant, and the action was brought to recover the premises 13151 street northeast on a thirty days' notice. The statute states in effect that the notice must be served on the tenant in hand or to some person of proper age on the premises, or in the absence of such tenant or person, then such notice may Le served by affixing the same to a conspicuous part of the premises where It may be conveniently read. ' 'n this case the notice was served on the tenant, Schlosser, not on the premises rented, but at the house of the landlord, Drury, several squares distant. The point raised by the defense was that the notice must be served at the premises, while the plaintiff claimed that a personal service on the tenant anywhere In the District would be sufficient. The justice decided that the statute required the ser v ice of the notice to be made at the premises, and gave Judgment In favor of defendant. The plaintiff appealed to the Circuit Court Robberies Reported.?Albert C. Stevens, Columbia road and lfuh street extended, reports to the police that some time between the 10th of February and the 3d of April there was stolen from his house a quantity of clothing and silverware, valued at $85.

Judge Wylle stated In the criminal court yesterday that he had received a communication from Mr. A. K. Browne In relation to the term at Erie penitentiary of a client named Samuel Morris, whose time, counting from when sentence was passed was out, but whom the authorities rerused to release until the term for which he had been sentenced had been spent In the penitentiary. The question was whether the time a man spent in confinement while waiting for an appeal to be settled should be credited to his term of Imprisonment under his sentence. Judge Wylle said that while the appeal was pending the punishment was suspended In the eye of the law, and the prisoner was simply confined for safety. The sentence did not begin to run until the man entered the penitentiary.

CoL Thomas P. Ochiltree says be thinks, alter looking the Held over, that President Arthur la the strongest man the republicans ever nominated. lie says that at first sight It doe* not look as If the results ot the Utlca convention had been raror.ible to the Arthur Interests, hut that when '< t'i thing is carefully looked into a different conclusion is reached. "There is," be said, talking to a Star reporter to-day, "there Is to be added to his strength with the machine, which was measured at the convention, and found not insignificant, the business interest ana the liberal ?>atiment throughout the state. I believe the Edmunds men will go for Arthur, and all the business ' Interests are tor ntm. He Is, 1 believe, the Btroiurest man In New York." , "You will notice," added the colonel, cocking his head on one side with a knowing wink. "You will notice that all the conventions have endorsed hN administration, though many have sent delegates instructed for souie one else. Now, you may Judge for yourself what this means. If his administration is endorsed why should he not be. That's the point. It shows that they j like him well, though some of them like another better. They all like htm." And the Colonel cocked his head on the other side with another wink. "They all like him, and that's what cant be said for any one else. So, when the fight becomes close, and It Is evident that their several favorites can't be nominated, they will all unite on him. Seer But Klalne and Arthur may each hold their forces so well as to necessitate the selection of a black , horse." "Who is the likeliest black horse*" asked The Star. "Robert Lincoln, probably; or they may have to put up a New York man, In which case it would be Andrew D. White." "Yet,? he added, knitting his brows and shaking his locks in russet ringlets over the back of his collar, "yet the horse may have A man on his back." Then he explained, with a wink, that "Grant, you know, is called the 'man on the horse.' One thing In this matter," be said, "I greatly deprecate. There Is nothing proper or politic In personal abuse. I have opposed Blaine, but I donl believe anyt hlng that Is said against him. Nor do those who sav it. He is a great man, and would, it elected, make'one of the grandest I'residents we ever had."

Alexandria Affairs* Reported for The Evening Stab. The Canal Stoce Case.?The United states circuit court, Judge Hughes, held a session here yesterday, when a motion was argued to compel the city of Alexandria to pay a money value for the shares of Alexandria Canal stock which were not transferred to the United States under the decree made In October, 1882. The total stock which the United States claimed at the time was 3,500 shares, and the court sustained the claim. But Alexandria had In 1847 transferred 1.220 shares to the state of Virginia; so that only 2,280 shares remained In Its possession. This was transferred to the United States on the 10th of November. 18K2, and the court decreed that for the shares not delivered the United States was "entitled to compensation and damage." So the matter has remained. A suit was brought to compel Uie board of public works of Virginia to transfer these 1,230 shares to the United States, but last February Judge Hughes dismissed the bill. The present suit is to fix the "compensation or damage" which the United States Is entitled to receive from the city of Alexandria. The stcck of the canal has, for the third of a century, had no market, and been considered of merely nominal value. After hearing the argument the court reserved its decision. School Board.?The city school board held Its regular meeting last night, Hon. C. E. Stuart In the chair.
