Chicago, June 15.?Kershaw & co. are officially
posted as having failed to go through the clearlng

possible to gain any adequate idea or the amount
Involved In the failures ol the morning. B. J. Mc
Cleary's downfall is thought the heaviest,
and will reach more firms than any other.
Mccieary, it is said, was in the deal quite
heavily, but In the present unsettled
state of affairs even members or the firm had no

when July wheat broke to 70 cents.
c f,^TA"KE'JUne 15.12:30 p.m.?There is an un

Co. and the news of fresh failures. July wheat
sold down to 71 and reacted to 73.

the last report has been very much excited and
nervous. June delivery suffered the most, break

Later months are off from lal^c., as affected
by the depression in June and July. The specu

A Dramatic Scene in a Chicago Bank*
ing Houee This morning-.
Chicago, June 15.?There was a sensational and
dramatic council at the American Exchange Na
tional Bank this morning. It began at 7 o'clock,
and settled the fate of to-day's market. Tnere
were present Joe Wiltshire, of Cincinnati, a mid
dle-sized, swarthy man; Eggieston, Kershaw's
special partner, wlio&e fortune is at stake now be
cause, it Is claimed, be has tx-en active in the busi
ness, was there. Kershaw's face showed lines
made by
President D. W. Irelln, of the bank, and of the Arm
?L, ? ,n' Green ? Co., was the most determined
looking man of the lot. Cashier De War. or th *
bank, and several of the directors were present.'
l lils consultation began Just as soon as Wiltshire
got off the Cincinnati train at the foot of Lake
street, and hurried to the bank. He was accom
panied by a good-looking, smooth-faced youn.r tel
low, v\ hose sack-coat bulged, as ? lerks" coats some
times do when they are hurrying to the bunk to
make deposits. The pair at once entered the bank
and the directors' room, where the others were to
meet them,
The scene presented will not soon be forgotten.
Kershaw was busy writing, ilia face was hag
gard, but the man looked brave. Eggleston's face
was a study, too, as he sat in this Interview. The
perspiration dropped from his brow, and his great
red beard was all awry. Wiltshire at 8 o'clock
left the bank and walked to the corner of Dear
born and Monroe streets, where he met the young
tellow who had accompanied him on the train
and who had before this left the bank for the
Richelieu Hotel. The young fellow s pockets
bulged again, l'he two entered the bank, and In
thirty minutes more the council was over Ker
shaw had the money to pay his dlfferences'and to
margin the market. Immediately arter the open
In# of the board or trade the secretary rappea for
silence. It wan a difficult thing to obtain, but
when he finally prevailed he read the following:
"Gentlemen: We are prepared to pav all our
clearing house differences and to margin below
the market. C. j. Kershaw & Co."
broke out at this, and the galleries, which were
crowded to suffocation by ladles, responded by the
waving of handkerchiefs. The rew announcements
of several small failures that followed did not J
count. The board or trade directors held a special '
session berore the opening of Change to-day, ror
the puruose or deciding whether or not to take !
any action. It was thought when the meeting i
was called that It would be best to adjourn the
board for a day In order to allow the excitement
to cool off, but It was finally decided that no ac
tion was necessary.

buy wheat are coming In from outside points, and

Judge Thurman Completes His Argro
meiit?Bell's Cane Opened.
Boston, June 15.?in the United States Circuit
Court to-day the arguments In the famous Bell
Telephone cases were continued. There was quite
a large attendance of members of the bar, as the
great array of counsel has rather Increased the
great interest In this case among the members of
the legal profession. The fact that Judge Thurman
was to continue hla argument also added Interest.
Mr. Thurman reviewed the manner In which an
Invention may be patented. By this rule patents
are all locked up from the public. The whole
thing Is done in secret. How is the examiner to
know thts thing has not been known before. He
cannot know It unless it comes to him by acci
dent. But if he hears that some person has some
such thing already made he has no power
to call testimony. It cannot, therefore,
be said that these examiners act Judicially.
Judge Thurman then explained different modes of
procedure in the patent and law offices, and said
that In the latter proceedings were as public as
the day. If the Government had the right to ap
peal to the courts to set aside a land patent,
much more had they the right to ask the
court to set aside an ordinary patent.
The next point which Mr. Thurman said he
should consider was whether the Bell Telephone
Co. was a bona nde purchase. What Is there In a
patent which makes It negotiable and gives to It
all the Quality of a bill of exchange If the patent
was void tor any sufficient cause? You cannot
breathe the life into that thing and turn It
over to the Bell telephone with consideration
or without. He then considered the statute of
limitation. The patent was not confined to time
In limitation as to jecelvlng its rights unless ex
pressly provided by statute. This was a principle
recognized by common law for many centuries.
This case has differed from others that have been
decided previously. This case had been regularly
brought before the court, and the decision
of the United States Supreme court
In the private cases now before It
would not In the least affect the decision of this
case at present before the circuit court. Judge
Thurman's turther argument was composed largely
of a repetition of the arguments ot counsellors
Lowery and Goode, who had preceded hlrn.
Mr. E. L. l>lckerson, of Xew York, then opened
the case for the Telephone Co., and dwelt at
length upon the question whether the Attorney
General had the power to bring such a suit as that
now pending. Courts have repeatedly decided
that the Attorney-General, representing the
President, had no power as now claimed.
In all ol these cases he has never appealed from
the decision of the court to the supreme court at
W ashlngtou to iind out whether he was right or
not. Mr. Dlckerson then considered Mr. Thur
man's argument that patent cases and land patent
cases were similar In the authority exercised
over them by the Attorney-General, and claimed
that the two classes of cases were ent lrely different,
and cited iroui the records of the Supreme court,
to establish this claim. This closed the argu
Decision Is reserved lor the present.

A Pleuro-Pneunionia Scare.
It was reported to Chief clerk McGinn, of the
health office, yesterday, that most of the cattle
arriving in this city from outside places were
affected with the pleuro-pneumonla. The person
who gave the information said that the city of
Baltimore bad quarantined against cattle from
Maryland, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Last week
the gentleman said mere were more cattle sold In
this city tlian there were In Baltimore.
Mr. McGinn said to a Star reporter this after
noon that they would Investigate the statements
made, to ascertain, if possible, whether there
was any foundation for them, and If they
found upon Investigation that there were any
cases of the disease in this city they would report
the facts to the National Bureau of Animal Indus
try and do wnat they could In the matter. The
recent act of Congress, he said, provides for the
destruction of such animals and appropriates
money tor that purpose. Mr. McGinn inquired of
the health department in Baltimore as to the
rumor and was lnlormed that the pleuro-pneu
monla scare had prevailed there for some time,
but It was now pretty well under control. The
Baltimore officer said that the Bureau of Animal
Industry had been working with them, and were
acquainted with all facts In connection with the

FRANK cookk's exploits in several cities.
S<vea wee s ago a joung man, who said that

N. J., for the sale ot rubber stamps. He borrowed
a great deal of money, and Anally obtained a $260
tricycle from D. Rogers & co., of Newark, on a
forged check. He was arrested In the Coleman
House, New York city, where he had registered
under the name of Martin, and has since been
locked up at Jefferson Market. Yesterday Mrs.

Wbjr Dr. Back Wants the Guard Be
Tbe Washington correspondent of the New York
Herald says: Ever since General Logan's death a
volunteer squad of regular Army soldiers hare
guarded his tomh In Rock Cn>ek Cemetery. The
other night when Dr. Buck, the venerable rector
of the ancient church with which the cemetery is
connected, sought to pass through tne grounds ho
was challenged by the guard, and was so much
annoyed by them that he said he would have the
soldiers kept out of the cemetery. He has com
p.alned that they desecrated it by playing cards
there and other unseemly conduct, and so there
^ /?ard around the vault. It Is in this
> auit that the remains of General Logan were
Pni *!n I)ec*roher 31, to stay until the state of
Illinois Is ready to receive the hpdy.
"When Mrs. Logan heard of the proposal to re
move the guard she was deeply grieved, and said
if the guard were removed the coffin, with her late
husband's body In it. should be brought to her own
home, Caluuiet Place, there to stay In what is to
be a memorial hall to her late husband, until In.
Illinois, or course her irlends do

to the contrary notwithstanding. Dr. Buck's resi

has been the rector over thirty years."
What Mr*. Lofan Knyu.
A Star r> porter this afternoon called upon Mrs.
Gen. Logan at her residence, Calumet Place, in re
gard to the above statement* She said that it was
true that Dr. Buck, of the Rock Creek parish, had
said that he would like to have the
guard removed. lie thought that it was
no longer necessary to have a guard
there, and, besides, that It was not
appropriate in a cemetery of that kind. Mrs.
Lo<an says that she told him that at present she
hud no other place to deposit the remains of the
General, and that she would not feel at all inclined
L. .{?ua V as romoved, to allow the remains to
stay there, in such an event she would bring the
coffin and place it in the halloi her house until the
place was prepared by the Illinois legislature.
Airs. Lo^an said that Major Rlttenhouse, a mem*
J**.1" of the vestry, was of the same opinion as her
self. Dr. Buck iiad said that he would bring the
I matter to the attention of the vestry, but she
I that this would not be done and that
nothing further would be done. As to the alleged
bud cO'iduct of the men, she had heard nothing
about li, out she had visited the grave frequently
and lound the members of the guard not only gf n
tiemaniy In their conduct but laltlilul in the dis
charge of their duties, she did not think that
their conduct had been in the least objectionable.
It cannot be learned that any protest was made
either at the War Department or at the Washing
ton barracks, from where the guard of a sergeant
and^lx men is detailed by order of the Secretary
O'Brien, of the Washington*, Sus
Word has been received that O'Brien, the flrat
basemen of the Washlngtons, has been Indefinitely
suspended, and it is said that intoxication
is the cause. Nothing la known here of
the reported suspension of Shaw, but
many people are of the opinion that
It might be true. They claim that no nine ball
players in the country can make thirtv-two base
hits off his delivery If he does his best. There
is no denying in ? fact that the Washington
team are not playing bail as It should, be played
and they can play K. Whether the demoraliza
tion Is due to the effects of John Barleycorn or
not is not known here, but many people believe
that the reports to that effect are not unfounded.

Plans harp been In preparation mr time In
the engineer department of the District govern
ment for beginning, under the appropriation re
cently made by Congress, a system of suburban
sewerage. The details of the plans for wwsring
the northern suburbs hare been worked out. and
now await only the final approval of CoL Ludlow.
Under the appropriation, sewers will be con
structed to drain Mount Pleasant, Le Droit Park,
and Anacostls. The Le Droit Park eewer,
an eighteen-lnch 9ewer, will i>e short, emptying
Into the Boundary sewer, and will cost about
*1.800. The sewer for Mount Pleasant has been
Planned, after careful consideration of the natural
features of the area to be drained, with the view
to following the natural drainage so tar us possl
j"id also providing a sewer for present use
which will ultimately become a part
of a more extensive system. This
^^er? _ beginning as a twelve-inch
a ' at 1110 point when* Park street and
lbtn street extended meet, will follow Park street
tJien P? alo?g 14' h street road to Harvard,
to l.ith street road, to Columbia, to the line of New
avenue extended. It will then proceed
. *"oug Iho line of New Jersey avenue ex
tended till it. meets the six-foot sewer
that runs out 8th street. It will con
1,113 sewer, and through It
?*'ir lts sewage into the great Boundary
*.As 11 proceeds from the starting point at
st.reot, extended, it win gradually be enlarged
until at Columbia street it merges into a brick
sewer i>4 inches in diameter, and when It reat hes
win street it will have boen enlarged to a four by
sewer. This enlargement is made in view
5ct ultimately a sewer to be con
structed on Sherman avenue will con
nect with it on 8th street. This sewer,
tneestimated cost of which Is $-J3,OH), will, c>>l.
Ludlow thinks, provide for the sewage of the
"leas*nt region tor some time to come. The
lOial sewers now laid In the Mount. Pleasant
streets win connect with it. It Is not Intended to
carry on the surface drainage,as,on account of the
topography, the natural drainage of the surface is
a J*1**5 part toward the north and west.
It will provide for the surface drainage of a part
or the area only. coL Luulow expects that other
sewers will be constructed ultimately draining to
tne north and west into Intercept lug sewers, and
that a pump will have to be Introduced to make
the proper connection with the existing systems.
. work on the Mount Pleasant and Le Droit
Park sewers will be done this season.
A sewer will also be laid In Anacostla of a ca
pacity large enough to provide tor that section.

Cumberland'! Champion yiarble Playet
From the Cumber land News.
The Hilty boy, who a few months ago lost both
arms In a railroad accident, Is a remarkable lad lc
many respects. Our readers will remember wltto
what nonchalence he bore his sufferings, and that
In an amazingly short time after the operation b?
was out on the streets, as bright and chipper a*
you please. Ills misfortune has not prevented
him rroui enjoying himself in many respects a:
other buys do. For ins- a nee, he plays marble-,
and plays far better than many boys who havt
two arms, eight fingers and two luumbs. In short,
he Is a champion ot the ring. He does much of his
playing on the West Slue, and it Is said he has
"broken" a number ol tne best players over there,
or course, the reader will have by this time guessed
that he plays with his toes. That's what he does,
and his "shots" show wonderful accuracy ana
lorce. Perhaps, as he grows up, he can train these
substitutes ror fingers to do useful and even
artistic work. There are well-authenticated cases
of this having been done.
The Deadly Spider Again*
From the Chattanooga Time*,
A colored man named John King prepared for
bed last Tuesday night. Being very warm he un
dressed hlmseir and sat down on a back porch to
cool off. He was Just In the act of going Indoors
when he felt a stinging sensation on his left hip.
Thinking It was some Insect he crushed It with his
hand, and upon investigation found the Insect
was a red spider. King thought nothing of the
incident, and in less than a minute was In bed.
In a very short time he discovered that his lea
was swelling rapidly, and he Was suffering in
tensely. Local remedies were applied, but they
did not alleviate the pain, and finally a physician
was sent ror. When lie arrived King was round t?
be in a very dangerous condition. The bite or the
little spider h.:d prostrated him, and as the poison
was absorbed the man's boay swelled to enormous
size, and was cohered over with small white
splotches which gave him a most peculiar appear
ance. After a vigorous combat, with a remark
ably strong constitution to back bins, a doctor has
succeeded in saving the man's lire, but he will
never be the strong rellow he used to be.

their bodily pain, and saves them rrom the anguish
of the final parting with those they leave behind.
It is not uncommon, however, for clearness or
comprehension to persist to the last, and perhaps
It is still more common for some of the special
senses to preserve their activity. We think It was
Ernst Wagner who, In his "General Pathology,"
dwelt particularly on the preservation of the sense
of heating In many cases long arter the apparent
occurrence of unconsciousness, and who tenderly
cautioned his readers that this possibility
should be borne In mind. The following touching

Thk Fkle Gas v^vestion.?The question of gas

Hi or gas which has been consumed beyond the
$50 worth allowed free be canceled, and that here
after all the gas used at the armory, which now
serves exclusively military purposes, siiaii be free.
The pressure on gas matters will probably lead to

Now Where In JVloloney)
A dispatch from Lachlne, Canada, to the New
York Times, dated June 14, says: A visit made to
day to Lachlne, where "Billy" Moloney has been
passing t he summer, revealed a fact which may
nave startling meanlhg for those aldermen of the
board ot 18M, who accepted bribes, and more
directly for Jacob Sharp, the man accused of brib
ing them. The man who carried the "boodle" was
missing. His family were at his summer residence,
but the much sought for and much dreaded "Billy"
was not with them. Not a particle of information
could be obtained from Mrs. Moloney, but spurred
on by the fact that all the recent sensational
rumors in regard to the ex-readlng clerk's plana
had united in the prophecy that be would be In
New York on Wednesday, tne Ttmea'a correspon
dent instituted a vigorous Inquiry. Nothing
definite was discovered except that Moloney was
In none of his accustomed haunts. Hack driven
and station agents were interrogated in vain.
None of them could or would admit knowing any
thing of the exile's movements or In what direction
he bad gone.
Ail the hotels were visited last night in a search
for Moloney, but on none of the registers appeared
his name or a name which there was any reason to
suppose had been assumed by him. The fashion
able hoarding houses were visited one by one. At
all of them the answer was the same, nothing had
been seen of Moloney. Moloney was not in
Montreal, Just as he was not at Lachlne. This
does not prove that he had not started lor New
A Costly Bonfire.

luck boxes, poker tables and chips, markers, ?w>r?

wagon loads. They were hauled to the most pub

piles. The tables and fortune wheels and faro
boards were broken and split Into ""?n pieces,

aggregate values of the two piles of fuel was not
less than $10,000. After pouring several gallons
