Did Mrs. Wilson Say to the Prince?
LORDOJT, June 2.—Long before 11 o'clock,
the hour fixed for the opening of court, ail
the seats were filled. Many of those pres
ent brought their lunches, so that they
would not be compelled to lose any part
of the proceedings by going out to eat.
The plaintiff, Sir William Gordon Cum
ming, resumed the witness stand. Pressed
by the cross-examination questions of
Russell, the plaintiff said that he took the
present legal proceedings because the bac
carat scandal had become a public matter
of conversation and comment, and because
It had reached the clubs to which he be
longed, the Turf Club and the Marlboro
Club, among otherj. and had he not taken
action in the matter his clubs would cer
tainly have done so.
A letter from General Williams to Cum
ming was then placed in evidence. It was
addressed, "My dear Bill," and its con
tents were to the effect that nothing was
left to him, the plaintiff', but to place him
self unreservedly in the hands of his com
manding officer, Colonel Stracey, as he had
done. The letter also contained the fol
lowing: "You are quite at liberty to tell
Colonel Stracey that you signed the docu
ment under extreme pressure and promise
of secrecy." The witness here said: "I
have never for a moment ceased to deny
the accusation made against me." Later
on, Sir William denied that he said to
Berkeley Lovell: "Could you not say that
you were mistaken?"
A sensation was created at this point by
Sir Charles Russell, who, after hearing
this last denial from the plaintiff, re
marked gravely, fixing his eyes steadily
upon the baronet in the witness box:
"Colonel Sir William Gordon Cumming,
you will have to be careful." A low mur
mur of comment passed over the people in
the court room as Sir Charles Russell
uttered these words. The plaintiff evi
dently noticed their effect, for almost im
mediately afterwards his manner seemed
to lose some of its jaunty carelessness,
and he acknowledged that he had said
something of that sort to Berkeley Lovell.
This caused another sensation, and it
seemed to be admitted that the counsel
for the defendant had scored his first real
decided advantage.
The Prinoe of Wales was next called -to
the witness box. The prince gave his tes
timony In a clear voice and with an un
ruffled brow. In substance, the prince
said:
1 have known the plaintiff lor twenty year*,
and have been his friend for the past ten years.
He visited my house several times, and our in.
timacy continued unimpaired until Isst Sep
tember. I observed nothing suspicious in the
play art the plaintifTs house in Tranbycroft I
was first informed of the report current in re
gard to Sir William by Lord Coventry. I did not
see any of the five persons in question until
alter Sir William had the interview with me
aud denied the charge brought against him.
When I heard the gentleman's story several
days afterward, Lord Coventry and General
Williams prepared a statement of what had
taken place and handed it to me.
On the cross-examination by Russell the
prince was asked:
Do you recollect whether, In addition to the
three gentlemen referred to, you also saw Lord
Edward Somerset aud Captain Somerset at
Tranbycroft?
I believe I did.
To whom certain statements were made by the
other three gentlemen?
Yes.
Had you also been informed that two ladies,
whom you did not at that time see, had alleged
that they also witnessed the cheating"
Yes.
Was the memorandum a suggestion of yours or
of another in which you acquiesced?
The suggestion was made by Lord Coventry.
I was greatly distressed at the occurrence. I
was present at the interview with Sir William
in the presence of General Williams and Lord
Coventry. I think he [Sir William] asked me
whether I believed the statement made
about him, but I do not recollect what I re
plied.
Do you remember the reference to the Duke of
Cambridge?
Decidedly.
Did you desire, under the circumstances, to
net HS leniently as possible out of regard for Sir
William Gordon Cumming?
Most certainly. The date of the document
was admitted by Lord Coventry and aiQxed to it
after it had been signed.
Have you met Sir William since the occur
rence at Tranbycroft?
No.
And have you intimated that you eannot
meet him?
It would be more agreeable not to do so.
At this stage a juryman caused a sensa
tion by rising from his place and asking in
a loud voice: "Is the jury to understand
that you were banking on these two occa
sions and knew nothing of the alleged
malpractices'?"
The prince hesitated for a moment as if
undecided as to whether he ought or
ought not to reply. Finally he said, with
a half smile: "It is very easy for the
banker, when dealing cards, not to see
anything, especially when in the company
of friends in a country house."
"You did not for a moment suppose that
anyone would play unfair?" the juror
asked. "What was your opinion at the
time the charges were made against the
plaintiff?"
To this the prince savagely replied:
"The charges made against him were so
unanimous that I had no other course
open to me than to believe them."
The prince's last answer caused another
flutter of excitement, followed by whis
pered comment.
The juror apparently had succeeded in
bringing out squarely and beyond any
possible doubt the fact that the Prince of
Wales, in view of the evidence which had
been placed oetore him at Tranbycroft by
the ladies and (jentlemen who piayed bac
carat with Sir William gumming. Septem
ber 8 and 9, had oecome convinced of the
plaintiff's guilt.
When the murmurs of astonishment,
which greeted the juror's question and the
prince's answers, had subsided, Sir Ed
ward Clarke, seeing that he must do'every
thing possible to regain the ground which
seemed to have been lost by the plaintiff
in the estimation of the jury, said, ad
dressing the Prince of Wales:
"I take it that your highness' answer to
the hrst question put to you by the juror
was substantially that you had not seen any
malpractice during the game of baccarat
played at Tranbycroft last September *"
The prince assented to this and hia ex
amination was concluded. Ue gate his
eT *^* nc * 4 halting, besitatinsr manner,
and he seemed to be very glad and ex
ceedingly relieved when his examination
was over.
<3«»eral Owen Williams was the next
He related everything connected
with the games, his testimony in the main
concurring with the previous witnesses.
'Crow-examination by Sir Charles Rus
sell he said that on the second night of the
playing he heard the Prince of Wale«
tell plaintiff that he should keep his hands
further back because he (the prince) could
not aee the stakes. The general said that
he and others who were present at Tranby
croft told the plaintiff that signing a doc
ument agreeing never to play cards again
was the only way out of the difficulty, and
if he did not do so he would have to leave
the house and would be warned off every
race course in England or elsewhere.
•T Pfe®® °f testimony caused a de
cided sensation. When Sir Charles Russell
•sked Williams why he continued to ad
dress plaintiff as "Dear Bill" in letters
after the scandal, witness explained that
plaintiff was suffering agony of mind and
that he [Williams] did not wish to add to
his old friend's grief.
At another part of the crO&s-examination
the general admitted that the plaintiff had
reproached Lord Coventry and himself for
giving plaintiff bad advice.
Charles' cross-examination of Sir
William Gordon Cumming is pronounced
to be a very successiul effort. What Sir
Charles wanted was that plaintiff should
admit that he remained quiet so long as
he thought the facts in connection with
the scandal would*»ot get about, and the
fact that they did" get out and no loftier
motive led Sir William to take the present
proceedings. But between Sir Charles
and the plaintiff there was a long and
stubborn contest, Sir William parrying
the lawyer's thrusts skillfully. Fi
nally, alluding to the compact of
secrecy, plaintiff said: "Yes, I lived in a
fool's paradise for a time. At least I had
to act so, because had I not done %o the
thing would have been taken up by my
club, by my friends and my regiment."
"That is what I wanted," remarked Sir
Charles.
Sir Charles cross-examined the Prince of
Wales with some BIIOW of airiness. The
word "you" in Sir Charles' cross-examina
tion took the place of "your royal high
ness" and "sir," which had plentifully in
terlarded Sir Edward Clarke's questions.
Bat, though Gladstone's attorney general,
Russell, showed to a certain degree
his liberal tendencies, he was
manifestly tender in his handling
of the royal witness. In fact, the general
opinion formed in the court-room was that
there was evidently a tacit agreement be
tween leading counsel that they were to
fish for and fret nothing from the prince
which any other witness could supply.
Only once did the Prince of Wales betray
any open sign of impatience, and that was
when Sir Charles asked, "What did Mrs.
Wilson say to you about Sir William Gor
don Cumming cheating?"
The prince replied shortly, somewhat
angrily, it appeared: "She said very
little," and there the subject was dropped,
as any lawyer can see, at the most im
portant stage. The prince had admitted
that Mrs. Wilson told him something
about Sir William's cheating, and Sir
Charles wanted to find out what she stfld
to the prinee, but the latter's show of an
noyance at the question caused the counsel
to tarn his legal mind to other matters.
Though .it only lafted twenty minutes
the examination of the prince evidently
wearied him exceedingly and made
him extremely nervous. He kept
changing his position, and did not
seem able to keep his hands still. When a
question more pressing, more to the
point than usual, was put to him, the
prinoe's face was observed to flush consid
erably and then to turn pale again, show
ing the state of nervousness in which he
found himself. Except the lord chief jus
tice, counsel, jurors, press representatives
and others in proximity to the witness
box, only about a couple of the prince's
answers were audible throughout the
court-room.

OTTAWA, June 3.—A bulletin issued at mid

OTTAWA, June 2.—Sir John Macdonald passed

Since that time he has shown signs of beat pros

OTTAWA, June 2.—Now that Sir John Macdon
aid's death is so near the question of the leader
ship is being discussed. The general opinion is
that Sir John Thompson will be premier, al
though a majority of the Western members fa
vor Sir Charles Tapper. The French Conserva
tives are almost a unit for Thompson, and many
insist upon his appointment. The matter, to
a very considerable degree, rests with the gov
ernor-general, who, it is stated, learned the pre
mier's wishes during the election campaign.
Sir Charles Tupper at that time was his choice.
J. J. C. Abbott is also strongly spoken of.
TORONTO, June 2.—ln discussing the question
of what will follow in the event of Sir John
Macdonald's death, the Globe, the principal or
gan of the Liberal party, says: The bints that
have been thrown out about a coalition are out
of question. The Liberals would not coalesce
with Tupper or Langevin upon any terms uor
join with Abbott or Thompson, except upon the
clear understanding that the national
policy should be abandoned in favor of
free trade with the United States. Whoever
Sir John's succevor may be, the task before him
la one of extraordinary difficulty. The Liberals
are prepared to do everything that is fair and
reasonable, but they cannot be expected to con
done things which they have condemned, or to
support a fiscal policy which they know to be
wrong.

PORT Towitsisp, June 2.—[Special.]—
The Washington Pioneer Association met
in this city this morning, and will be in
session again today. In the absence of the
president, E. C. Ferguson, of Snohomish,
the forenoon meeting was called to order
by First Vice-President James G. Swan, of
this city. He suggested that the morning
business be put over to the afternoon meet
ing, in view of the fact that a large num
ber of the association had not yet arrived,
and this was done. At 2 o'clock in the aft
ernoon the meeting was called to order by
President Ferguson. The session opened
with prayer by Rev. Mr. Blaine. The roll
was called by Secretary Francis Henry, of
Olympia, after which the minutes of the
last meeting were read.
There being no regular business
to come up for action, President
Ferguson asked the indulgence of
the members while he suggested
that some effort ought to be made
to secure a permanent home for the Pio
neer Association. He had called atten
tion to this matter at previous meetings,
he said, and desired now to again impress
it upon the members as something worth
more than passing notice. Judge Jacobs
said it seemed to him that there should be
a requirement in the by-laws making it
necessary for the officers to all reside in
one place. Under the present manage
ment there is no system about the man
agement of the organization, simply
because the officers cannot or do
not get together and talk matters
over. If all the officers reside in one
town they can get together and consult
on association matters whenever occasion
arises. Judge Swan supported Judge
Jacobs in this view. He was in favor of
electiug all the officers from Seattle.
Hon. A. A. Denny wanted to see Judge
Swan elected president, and for this
reason was opposed to tlie selection of
Seattle. Judge Swan said he appreciated
the honor Mr. Denny would confer on
him, but would not accept the presidency
under any circumstances. Mr. Eldridge
was against sectionalism. He was afraid
there would be a charge of this kind
lodged against those taking part in the
present meeting if such a change as had
been suggested was made. Judge Jacobs
said the trouble had been that the otjicers
got negligent after the meetings adjourned
and they did not think of their duties
until next meeting, and by that time there
were a great many things that should
have been attended to before.
Finally, on a vote, the proposition to re
quire all the officers to live in the same
place was not adopted, the vote being 33
for to 19 against—not the required two
thirds majority.
Section I of the by-laws, making the
headquarters of the association at Olym
pia and requiring the secretary to live
there, and also to keep all the records,
archives and relics there, came up for dis
cussion. It was finally stricken out alto
gether. The two following amendments to
the constitution were then read and re
ferred to a committee consisting of Thomas
Prosch, James G. Swan, Orange Jacobs,
Edward Eldridge and Jesse W. Gorge, who
reported recommending adoption, and it
was done by a unanimous vote. The mem
bership article now reads:
All persons residing in the territory of Wash
ington prior to January 1,1&60, and all members
of and persons eligible to membership in the
pioneer organizations of California, Oregon,
Idaho and British Columbia, and none other,
are eligible to become members of the associa
tion. Any resident citizen who has lived in the
territory or state of Washington twenty-one
years and upwards, not having the qualifications
specified in article 9, may, upon payment of <2
admission fee and otherwise complying with
the requirements of the association, have the
privilege of participating in all the deliberations
and social benefits except in the matter of
voting and serving on committees at annual re
unions. Payment of such annual dues as are
chargeable to other members shall be necessary
to retain honorary membership in the associa
tion.
The most important business of the
afternoon was the election of officers for
the ensuing year, and resulted as follows,
all the officers being unanimously elected:
D. T. Denny, Seattle, president; James G.
Swan, Port Townsend, first vice president;
Thomas Prather, Olympia, second vice
president; W.G.Latimer, Seattle, treas
urer; Charles Prosch, Seattle, secretary.
David Shelton and Edward Eldridge were
added to make the board of directors.
During the afternoon session Judge
Swan called attention to the fact that at
the meeting of the association last year in
Seattle it was urged that the legislature be
asked to provide for a proper celebration
of the anniversary of the discovery of the
Columbia river by Captain Robert Gray.
He said that although the legislature,
at its last session had appropriated
$1(0,000 for the Chicago World's fair it had
not even noticed the coming anniversary,
that was of much more interest to the pio
neers, and could be made of great practical
benefit to the state at large. In order to
get this matter again before the people,
Judge Swan offered the following resolu
tion and moved its adoption:
WHEREAS, The 11th day of May, IMG, is the
centennial of the anniversary of the disco very of
the Columbia river by Captain Robert Gray,
which discovery gave to the United states the
great region of Oregon, Washington ana Idaho;
tiQ'l
WHEREAS, But for this piiority r,f discovery by
Cupta.n Gray over the discovery of Ore a Britain
we would now be under the English hag aa a
province of Great Britain; be it therefore
Ratoiced, By the Pioneer* of Washington, in
regular anmal meeting, that we consider it em
inently right and proper that this great centen
nial even: be property celebrated.
Resolced, That we consider that the proper
method oi celebration of this cetuennial ii by a
fair to be held at Vancouver, Wash., at which
lair should be collected and displayed all the
products of thia state which are to be sent to the
W or.d's fair at Chicago, and that the transcon
tinental roada be requested to reduce rates of
fare to persons desirous of visiting our state.
Raolved. That a committee of pioneers, con
sisting of five member*, be appointed to confer
with any committee of citizens who may be
•elected or appointed by the governor to carry
the plan of thia centennial celebration into
effect.

SOLDIERS ON PIYALLCP LANDS.
To Oaat Squatters and Prevent Construe-
tlou of Railroads.
TACOMA, Juno 2. [Special.] Eleven neat
tents at the Puyallup Indian reservation siding
designates where the detachment of sixteen sol
dier* of the Fourteenth iufantry United Stot--a
regulars from Vancouver on Trucks are stationed
under Lieutenant Cabell at the I'uyallup reser
vation. The detachment arrived this raorniiiß,
with orders to evict the squatters on the reser
vation school farm. A sentinel patrol* in front
of the tents, while the soldiers off duty visit with
the Indians and try their luck at trout tiabing in
the Puyallup river.
The squatter* on the school farm arc William
Mclntyre and Richard Roediger, proprietors of
the Evening New*. J. M. Morrison, city engineer
of Tacoma, and William Berry. At the request
of the attorney for the squatters the Evicting
will be done tomorrow, in order to give the squat
ters time to be on hand and be removed, so thai
they may continue their case in the courts and
show that they were forcibiy removed. They
will not re«ist.
It ia unofficially stated that the troops will re
main on the reservation several weeks, snd pre
vent any attempt of railroad companies not
having authority from crossing the reservation.
The only mm who has the required consent of
the Indians to build a railroad through the
reservation is Frank C. Ross, who proposes to
build a street car line to I'uyallup and Sumner,
and a standard gauge road to Puyallup. Several
street car companies, besides the Union Fari lie,
are surveying a right-of-way through the
reservation.
When the campof the Vancouver soldiery was
visited today by a correspondent of the Po*T
iKTELttcxKCxa the regulars seemed more in
terested in the "mesa" tent and comely squaws
than in evicting squatters or heading off rail
road companies.
