Washington, August 1. The features of the movement to appoint Detective Tom Furlong, of the Gould Bailroad system, to the chieftaincy of the Secret Service of the Treasury Department, grow more and more queer, the nearer the matter approaches a final conclusion. In answer to the resolu tion adopted by the Knights of Labor of Maryland and the Federation of Labor of that State against the appointment of Fur long, the President has thought it worth while to send the following communication which came into the possession of the correspondent of The Dispatch this evening: 41. M. Talbott, President Federation of Labor. The President directs me to acknowledge the receipt of yonr telegram, which has been called to his attention, and to say that the ap pointment is not Presldental, bntismade by the Secretary of the Treasury, to wbom jour telegram has been referred. It is but fair to gay, however, that Furlong's appointment has been strongly urged by leading Knights of labor, anion? others Mr. Blake, the Chief Organizer. Mr. Powderly has withdrawn his protest, saving that he had been misled and was mistaken. Very respectfully, O. L. Pbubex, Assistant Secretary. tub president's interest. The last paragraph of this communica tion shows conclusively tha, though the ap pointment is not Presidents, the President is deeply interested, and has kept himself informed of papers which, if Ihe President is not interested, should be known only to tbe Secretary of the Treasury. In regard to the withdrawal of the Pow derly protest, the following dispatch from Philadelphia, under this date, furnishes some explanation: Thomas Furlong, of St Louis, is an ap plicant for the position of Chief of the Se cret Service Division of the Treasury De partment. During the last campaign he was employed by the Republican National Committee to do secret work in Indiana. He was chief of the detective service on the Missouri Pacific during the strike of the Knights of Labor in 1886, and was then credited with persecuting many of the mem bers of the order. A FAVOR TO RUSSELL. For some reason Russell Harrison takes an especial interest in having Furlong ap pointed, as appears from a long communica tion from T. V. Powderly in this week's Journal of United Labor, which will be published to-morrow. Mr. Powderly says that when in Washington, April 7 last, he beard that Furlong was a candidate lor the position oi Chief of the Secret Service, and entered a protest with Secretary Windom on behalf of the Knights of Labor against his appointment. May 17 Mr. Powderly re ceived a visit from Mortimer D. Shaw, who was the agent of the United Press in St Louis, during the strike of 1886. During the conversation Mr. Shaw said: "I have seen Russell Harrison, and he wants you to modify your protest, if you do not withdraw it Mr. Furlong will be appointed anyway, and Mr. Russell Harrison thinks it would be A GRACIOUS ACT on your part to at least modify the protest you sent to the Secretary, for Mr. Furlong performed a service for Mr. Harrison, the President, during the campaign, and he wishes to repay him. I then asked Mr. Shaw if he heard that from Rnssell Har rison, and he said: "I have told you what Mr. Harrison said to me, and furthermore, he said that he controlled a number of new (papers, and it would be to your (my) interest to withdraw the protest." Mr. Powderly next day received a letter signed" "R. B. Harrison," in which the latter said: "I have known Mr. Furlong for rome time, and his friends are anxious that he should not, owing to your letter, be left in A rOSITIOX OP HOSTILITY to labor organizations. I trust that you will see your way clear to write a letter to Secretary Windom, modifying your posi tion in reference to Mr. Furlong. This, I think, would be an act of justice as well as generosity on yonr part, and consistent with your well-known reputation for fairness. His many friends, including myself, would appreciate this act of courtesy." Mr. Powderly wrote a long letter to Mr. Harrison, giving his reasons for his opposi tion to Furlong's appointment. After at first approving of Mr. Powderly's course, the officers of the order in St. Louis were induced to ask him to withdraw his protest, which the General Master "Workman subse quently did. Knights ot Labor here say that the action of tbe St. Louis Knights, and of Mr. Pow derly and of Mr. Blake, Is but another in stance of the manner in which the rank and file of the order are MISREPRESENTED BY OFFICIALS who assume to be leaders, and who decide, PERSONA ftOK without consultation, apon any course which they may be influenced to pursue by capitalists or other considerations. It is possible that Mr. Powderly withdrew his protest simply on account of the alleged ac tions of the St Louis Assembly,feeling that he had no right to oppose their position in regard to the appointment, but this does not satisfy the Knights as a mass, who know how the officials of assemblies are often led by tbe nose by capitalistic and political in fluence. The Knights here have established the fact; that Furlong's appointment is to be a reward for his services in Indiana during the campaign, and to Russell Harrison in the ?4O,O0O libel sait of Schuyler Crosby against "Prince" Russell's Montana news paper, and with these weapons in their hands, with the declaration of Furlong that his mission in life was to break up labor organizations, they think they are strong enongh to make it very hot for the administration if the former Pittsburger be appointed. MANY KNIGHTS DISSATISFIED. A special from Franklin, Pa., to-night says: The District Assembly of the Knights of Labor, composed of the assemblies in Erie, Warren, Venango, Crawford and Forest counties, closed a three days' session in this city to-day. The representation was large. The sessions of the assembly were secret, but it was learned that a vast amount of very important business was transacted. The proposed appointment of Thomas Fur long as Chief of the United States Secret Service was discussed, and the members very emphatically expressed themselves as opposed to the appointment. MAKING THEM SKIP. Public Frlnter Palmer Cleaning Ilonie at a Lively Rate, The Dead Beats and Trimmer! Packing Their Grips for a Trip. ISFECIAL TEUOnfM TO THI DISrATCD.J "Washington, August 1. PublicPrinter Palmer has just been giving the Govern ment Printing Office a lively overturning. He has discharged about 40 employes, all of them Democrats, and nearly every one ap pointed through the influence of Senator Gorman by the late Benedict. Gorman got more employes into the printing office than all other Congressmen combined, and it was said that he would be able to keep them there through the Influence with the President of ex-Senator Davis, of West "Virginia, and Steve Elkins. But either Gorman has been indifferent, or the "influence" has not worked as anticipated. Among those dismissed is E. W. Oyster, foreman of the specification room, one of the most prominent Knights of Labor and mem bers of the Federation of Labor in the Dis trict. He is an old employe, and formerly from Pennsylvania. When Rounds was appointed Public Printer, Oyster was also an aspirant His failure soured him and he became a Democrat When Benedict was appointed, Oyster was also in the field, and, believing in Cleveland's re-election, he talked free trade and stuck to the Demo crats. After the election he endeavored to trim his sails for the new trade wind, but it was concluded he was too smart for his place. He and two or three of his enthusi astic supporters were among those who walked the plank. Ramsey, who is appointed to this very de sirable place to succeed Oyster, is a brother of Edward Ramsey, of the Crateman. which paper Oyster and others of the Columbia union endeavored in every way to "down" during the tenure of Benedict These removals are the cue to the determination of Mr. Pal mer to clean tbe trimmers, dead beats, "bar nacles and demagogues out of the office, and fill it with respectable and practical men.

Tho Great Prohibitionist la Senrch of the Mao Who Said' Ha Was About to Leave His Partr for the Republicans. rSPEClAL TXXEGBA3I TO THE DISPATCH! New York, August 1. There's a man in New Jersey somewhere whom General Clinton B. Fisk wants to catch. This man, whoever he is, has been writing articles from Trenton to various newspapers, saying that General Fisk has practically deserted the Prohibitionist party and is now a free lance, who will probably take tho first graceful opportunity he can to get back into the warm fold of Republicanism. The latest article of this description appeared in the Chicago JVi&une, on July 28. General Fisk says the man wrote a lot of stuff in the same vein for the Hail and Exprcts, until Colonel Shepard stopped it The Commer cial Advertiter, too, has been among the victims. The articles are based on General Fisk's advocacy of a restoration of the high license law to the New Jersey statute books. He proposes to get it back by advising peo ple to vote with the party that will put it back. "I don't believe in high license," General Fisk said to-day, "but I believe in letting the people who do believe in it find out that with high license drunkenness increases, and that prohibition is the only true rem edy. I may vote for a Democrat or a Re publican next fall, but it will be under the Prohibition flag. The situation in New Jersey is this: We will all unite under the one flag, upon one candidate, for Governor M. LeMonte. For the Legislature the dif erent districts will probably adopt as their nominees such men nominated by another party who are known temperance men. In many cases, doubtless, such men will be Republicans. In my county, Monmouth, on the other hand, it will be policy to vote wtyh the Democrats if they put up a man of temperance princi ples, because Monmouth is strongly Demo cratic anyway. It Major Yard, a Demo cratic leader there, and a .temperance man, is nominated by the Democrats, as is likely, I will support him. 'So it will be elsewhere. Our policy is to put our Legislative votes on temperance men of any party where they can be elected, though of course there are many in the party who would not vote for any but a Prohibitionist under any circumstances." KILLED A SEA SERPENT. The Immense MonsterThat Was Slaughtered by Menus of Bombs. Panama, July 24. Captain William F. Smith, of the bark Nautilus, reports that when off Cape Berkely, Galapo Islands, a sea serpent was seen about 30 yards from the vessel. Captain Smith estimated the serpent's length at 80 feet,! and he was twice as large as a barrel in the thickest part The head was shaped like a snake, only on the extreme end of the upper jaw there was a ridge or bunch. The head was about three feet in length, and about two feet back of the head was a mane of hair. No fins were seen. The tail was long and spreading and shaped like that of an eel. All had a good view of him, while he was slowly coming toward the ship. The captain and mate loaded two bomb guns and banged away at him, and for about 15 minutes there was quite a circus, the ser pent lashing the water with his tail and running his head out four or five feet At last he ran out his head, whisked around and sank, dead. Both bembs hit him. Wtoen he went down he was not more than 20 feet from the ship, and so, of course, we had a good look at him. A CHICAGO JEWELRY JOBBER Comes A Grief, and nis'stack Is Attached by tho Creditors. Chicago, August L The Sheriff to day levied on the jewelry stock of Max Young, a jobber in jewelry at room 6, 170 State street The stock was first attached at the suit of the Dueber Watch Case Company, on a claim of about $2,600. Later in the day a judgment for $2,100, in favor of the Chicago National Bank, was entered up and a levy made to satisly it. His stock of goods on which the levy was made is esti mated at about $10,000. His liabilities are nearly all in the East, and it is not known how much they amount to. It is believed, however, that "they will considerably exceed the assets. Young dealt with watch and watch case manufacturers who are outside the trust. SEXTON REITERATES HIS CHARGE Tons President Harrison's Letter to Him Had Been Opoucd. London, August 1.

He reasserted that the letter had been wilfully opened and defaced be fore it reached his hands. The seal, be says, had been melted, and gum was scattered over the outside of the envelope. The gum used by the person who opened the letter and the gum or iginally on the envelope were palpably different BOULANGER ISSUES A MANIFESTO.

General Boulanger hasjissued-a manifesto in which he attributes his defeat in the elections for the councils general on Sunday last to the ambitions of local candidates. He declares that he is confident of the result of the elections In France for members ot the Chamber of Deputies. Political circles in Paris here regard the manifesto of General Boulanger as weak and as not likely to improve his position. A PALACE STEAMER WRECKED. Tho Pride of the St. Lawrence Rtrer Shivered Upon a Rock. Watertown, N. Y., August 1. The palace steamer St Lawrence, which has for several seasons been the pride of her officers and the best of the Thousand Island line of boats, ran on a rock off Hog Island, in the Canadian channel, to-day, and is going to pieces.

FRIDAY, NO LINE WAS DEAWN.4 Xortb. and South Unite in a Memor able Dedication Service. A MONUMENT TO THE PILGRIMS Unveiled at Plymouth Hock With Appro priate 'Ceremonies. KENTUCKY FURNISHES THE ORATOR. Hon. W. C V. Brtctlnrldje Elco.nently Describes the Puritan Virtues. A handsome monument to the memory of the Pilgrim Fathers was dedicated at Plym outh Rock yesterday. Congressman Breck inridge, of Kentucky, was the orator of the occasion. The exercises were of a very in teresting character. rgrKCIAL TH.e6ejuI TO Tint DISPATCH.! Plymouth, Mass., August 1. Under skies which ever and anon poured forth a copious libation in honor of the ceremonv a vast concourse of people to-day assisted in the dedication of the monument erected in memory of the Pilgrim Fathers. The mon ument is situated on one of the highest hills in Plymouth, about northwest of the rock on wliich the Pilgrims landed, and west of the anchorage of the Mayflower. As it now stands completed it cost about $200,000. It is of solid Hallowell granite throughout, and consists of an octagonal pedestal 45 feet high, upon the center of which stands the figure of "Faith." This figure is 36 feet high, and rests with one foot on Plymouth Rock,' holding in her left hand the open Bible, while the right arm, uplifted, points heavenward to empha size the meaning. Mr. Hammatt Billings, a Boston architect, designed the monument, which was started in 1853, and after his death in 1871 his brother Jack carried it on. The following is the inscription on the main shaft: "National Monument to the Fore fathers, erected by a grateful people in re membrance of their labors, sacrifices and sufferings for the cause of civil and religious liberty." A DAY OF REJOICING. The celebration began at sunrise with a salute by Battery A and the ringing of bells. The morning trains brought vast numbers of strangers and a great throng surrounded the new monument at 9:30 when the dedicatory exercises were carried out by the Masonic Grand Lodge according to the ritual of their order. At 11 o'clock tbe pro cession moved over an extensive route in seven divisions. At the completion of the parade the offi cers and members of the Pilgrim Society with the orator, poet and invited guests, took their places in the great dining tent, and the feast provided for the occasion was discussed for an hour. Governor Long then introduced Hon. W. C. P. Breckin ridge, of Kentucky, the orator of the day, with the following remarks: Tbe celebration of the completion of tho na tional monument to tbe Pilgrim Fathers would, indeed, be dwarfed in the cr ndeurof its pur pose if every State in tho Union, and every race and color that is an element of the Ameri can people, were nofpartlcipant in person or in interest in Its dedlcation.'for the pilgrim still lives wherever the American flag floats. Ho shines in every star of its constellation and waves in every stripe in its folds. His stock has spread vide across tbe 'Republic, and his characteristics and influence, MOLDING ITS INSTITUTIONS, bavo spread more widely still. The great Fed eral Union, ruichtiest among the nations of tbe earth, is Itself substantially tbe expansion of his compact in tbe cabin of the Mayflower. What then could be more fitting than that tho oration of the day should be spoken by a son of a Bister State? Let us call him from theSouth! Let us call him from Kentucky, birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, himself of Plymouth county descent. And from Kentucky whom else shall we call than her most 'eloquent orator, who represents in Congress tbe home of Henry Clay, and who so recently on the floor of tbe National Honse spoke words of graceful and generous tribute to Massachusetts. Always sustaining tbe high reputation of tho orators of his native State he will to-day sus tain tbe reputation of the successive orators of Plymouth Rock. And yet when you look on his face, as I have so often looked on it with tbe eyes of personal friendship and esteem you will say that it seems liko tbe face, not of a stranger, bat of a veritable descendant of tbe Mayflower. I present to you and I bid a hearty old colony welcome to the Hon. W. C. P. Breckinridge, of Kentucky. The appearance of Mr. Breckinridge was greeted with applause. After this subsided hedelivered his oration, during which he said, in part: No historian has given to those who first suffered for tbe sublimo truth that human freedom was impossible except by tbe separa tion of church and State, that place of em inence which is by right theirs. This is the truth to which the Pilgrim Fathers testified. This truth they first brougbt to America: this is their true honor; thhv is their fadeless crown. A NOBLE INSTRUMENT. These immigrants did not believe lna-theo-cratlc State any more than In a secularized church. It was necessary to organize a form of government and out of that necessity sprang that noble instrument known as the social compact of the forefathers. That such a com pact was deemed necessary demonstrates how scrupulously these men held to separation of church and State. Already they by their own convictions of tbe province of its powers and the limitations of its antbority, felt compelled to form a civil body politic. True emigrants do not leave their country behind them; they carry it with their faith and custom. Men die. these survive. They enter into the beliefs, convictions, life and hopes of composite people who are born, trained and live nnder their influence. These forefathers bronght with them their conception of En glandtheir England. They bronght no titles or ranks, priestly hierarchy: no ecclesiastical ranis and orders: no complicated system of fees. Dnt they did bring with tbem monogamic marriages, with its individuality and sanctity of home, the rights of the subject to the pro tection of. law, the1 saeredness of individual property, the precedent of consent before tho The Pilrjrlvys Monument. ! ATTG-UST 2, 1889.,' levying of taxes and tbe right to express in some legal and prescribed .manner their will for tboao who were to represent them in legis lature and church. It Is not true, except in a narrow sense, pat they were freed from the institutions of tho old world and at liberty to choose what material they would use in this new world. No men were ever fully committed by tho pre potency of blood, race, training, life and con victlons as these grave, earnest, heroic "pil grims," and the highest praise to be awarded them it that they were faithful to those convictions, steadfast in that faith, unwavering in devotion to these beliefs. Let us be just to all. These were not exclusively theirs, nor did they alone bring thm in. But this immigration was peculiar that a church, as a church, should found a settlement and, therefore, peculiar in the form of organization which this produced, and in the selection of the persons composing it; peculiar in that It was the first colony because of its belief in the freedom of the church from btate regulation; peculiar in that it landed In territory not included in the permission grant ed to lr, and where there was no superior, ex cept the somewhat uncertain rights of tbe King, and, therefore, it had to form a govern ment for itself; peculiar in the instrument which this exigency produced. During the first year, nnder tbe compact made on shipboard, meetings bad been held and some laws or ordinances enacted. These meetings were the first "town meetings" which perhaps Is the peculiar political f eatnre of New England development. And in tbe congrega tional form of church government tbe congre gational meetings are simply religious town meetings. The influence, educational, political and religious . of these town and congregational meetings on the development both individually and politically of tho citizens of the State can not be overestimated. ' My countrymen, the chlefest merit of those to whose memory this monument has been erected was their loyalty to the truth, as they saw the truth. This is the noblest attribute of man that he can love truth supremely the ktruth as we see it. To be loyal to that truth is uiu aupceiaesc amy. A BANK IN MOUENIM. Two of the Employes of a Wheeling; Insti tution Alleged to Have Appropriated Over 830,000 Both of Tbem Aro Now Under Arrest It Will Can so a Social Sensation. rsrxciAL tklxgbjlu to tiix dispatch l Wheeling, August 1. There will be a big sensation in social and financial circles to-morrow when it becomes known that Harry Seybold, teller in the Bank of Wheeling, and George Hennig, also an em ploye in the institution, have been arrested charged with embezzling the funds of the bank. The parties named were takerinto custody very late to-night and are now in charge of the sheriff and his deputies. Tho amount of the shortage is large, reaching at least $30,000, and perhaps ex ceeding that sum. It is understood that the crookedness extended over a period of about two years, and that a systematic method was pursued, the books being falsified so as to conceal the true state of affairs. The dis covery of a shortage was made sometime aeo, and the bank officials attempted to un ravel the mystery themselves. They ran out two or three clews, and then concluded to call in outside aid. This was done, and about ten days ago it became settled that at least $30,000 was missing. Then the question of settling upon the guilty parties came up, and this took time. Finally it was decided that Seybold and Hennig were the ones responsible for the crookedness, and at 10 o'clock to-night officers started out to make the'arrests. Hen nig was captured without trouble, but it was midnight before Seybold was taken into custody. The latter is the son of the cash ier, and comes ot a family standing high in social and business circles. At 1 o'clock Harry Seybold made a full confession. He exonerated Hennig frqm all blame, and said he took the money on the 10th day of last May. The package contained $24,000 in cash, and was removed from the valt to Seybold's home. There .he kept it until May IK when he de posited $12,000 in various .banks to the joint credit of himself and Hennig, and told all who asked about it that they had won the money in tbe Louisiana lottery. To Hennig he said he had borrowed the money, and intended to buy a gold mine with it. About $14,000 of the money has been recov ered, and property to about tbe like amount has been attached, so the bank will be am ply protected. WILLIAM IN ENGLAND. Germany's Emperor Visits Ills Royal Cousins and Takes Dinner. London, August 1. The German Impe rial yacht Hohenzollern, with Emperor William on board, accompanied by the German squadron, has arrived at Cover. Salutes of artillery were fired in honor of the Emperor. Emperor William will land at Trinity Pier at Cowes, where he will be met by the Prince of Wales. The Emperor and suite and the Prince of Wales will then enter carriages and proceed, under a military es cort, to Osborne, where the Queen will re ceive the royal visitor on the steps of the main entrance. Lord Salisbury and the other Cabinet Ministers and the principal Court officials will be present. In the even ing the royalties will have a family dinner. A BLOCK WORTH 91,000,000 la Wichita Is to be ths Prlzo of a Legal Straggle. Wichita, August 1. Suit has been commenced in the District Court of this county by alleged heirs of D. W. Gilbert to recover a block of property here valued at $1,000,000. D. W. Gilbert was a banker here in 1871, but before he died he moved to Ohio. His will provided that his prop erty should be distributed among his legal heirs, and in a codicil his sisters' children were named as such, together with the testa tor's father and mother. The property was divided between the two latter. The nephews and nieces now sue for possession. The property is now owned by as many as 200 different people, and they have combined to fight the suit. CANADA STILL EXCITED. The Dominion Is Angry, bat Will Have to Do as England Says. Ottawa, Ont., August 1. Excitement over the seizure of the sealer Black Dia mond in Behring Sea still continues. The Government is in communication with officials at Victoria, British Columbia. The report that Canada has advised a bold policy of reprisal is unfounded. The Government is cot disposed to recognize American pretensions in Behring Sea, but after all will have to acquiesce in the course of the imperial authorities. No word has been received from England on the subject, but it .is believed that Lord Stanley is in constant communication with Lord Salisbury. THE1 WILL GO AHEAD. mitvrankeo Will Dave n. G. A. K.

TXLXOBAX TO TITS prSFATCH.1 New York, August L It may have been tbe effects of a night spent iu police headquarters, where there is no bar, that gave Champion John L. Sullivan such a rusty appearance this morning. His mas sive, square face was colorless, and there was a deeper droop to the corner of his mouth than usual. Being a great fighter, he was, of course, treated with profound deference, and so much time was given him to prepare himself that it was nearly 11 o'clock before he started for the General Sessions. Mulberry street was jammed with a wild assortment of men, women and children. The coach could scarcely find a passage, and it took half a dozen big policemen to keep the crowd from forcing an entrance into ihe building. When Sullivan ap peared 'and squared his shoulders at the lowering day, the crowd cheered hoarsely and waved their arms like a multitude of roosters flapping their wings and crowing. personnel of the party. The big fellow wore a stiff-brimmed straw hat, with a broad black band, a woolen shirt and a cutaway coat. He has started in to raise a mustache, which has not yet gone beyond the bristle period. He lum bered down the stone steps and clambered into the coach. Closely following him were Deputy Sheriff Child, the bearer of Gov ernor Lowry's requisition from Mttussippi, a slender man, with a reddish mustache and long chin whiskers, and Detective Sergeants Adams and Kernan, of the Central office. The proud coachman cracked his whip and drove rapidly for a dozen blocks before he had succeeded in shaking off the yelling mob of boys that pursued him. News of the champion's expected arrival at the Gen eral Sessions had already sptead about, and Chambers street, in front oi the brown stone building, held an excited mob. When the coach drew up before the build ing there was a rush for it, but the police men threw themselves into the breach and kept a passage open for the champion. He was led into Colonel Fellows' private office, where be seemed a little out of place. Assistant District At torney MacDona said to him: "Sullivan, the only wayyou can get of this is to deny your identity and say yon are not John L. Sullivan." Around Sullivan stood Billy Mnidoon, tT. Pinna TnnV Tt--nl(t Xfl-A fM . TJhar!ey Johnston, Jimmy Wakely, Daniel Murphy nnd Diuy Dennett, ueiancy Nicoll had been retained shortly after Sul livan's arrest on Wednesday night, but it was midday before he appeared. He then led Sullivan into a private room" and ad vised him to return to Mississippi without a legal fight. He assnred Sullivan that this would be the wisest thing he could do, and would tend to make his punishment very light. "The nicest thing to do is to go right back," said Nicoll. "It would be a great deal nicer not to have to go," growled Sullivan, and then he added, hastily: "I am your true and per sonal friend, John L. Sullivan." HE TAKES niS MEDICINE. Having paid for the advice, the big fellow concluded to take it, and announced his readiness to go back to Mississippi. Then there was a rush for Supreme Court cham bers. As soon as the champion appeared the crowd on the street tore wildly after him, and in a jiffy the court room was packed. Judge Morgan J. O'Brien gazed in as tonishment at the crowd. Assistant Dis trict Attorney MacDona explained that Governor Lowry was the author of a requi sition for the apprehension of John L. Sul livan, Which had been duly sighed by Gov ernor Hill. He said that a writ ot habeas corpus could be applied for if the identity of the prisoner was denied. "Mr. Sullivan docs not deny that he is the person named in the warrant," said Mr. Nicoll. "I have had no opportunity to examine the papers, but I am satisfied that the proceedings are Tegular, and that they can't be successfully attacked. Mr. Sulli van has already made up his mind to return to Mississippi and submit himself to the authorities there." not a law breaker. Mr. Nicoll made a speech to the effect that Sullivan had no idea, when he became engaged to fight, that he would violate any law. He had been advised that there was no law against prize fighting. He supposed wben he left New Orleans that he was to fight in the State of Lonisiana, and it was not until the night before the battle that he was informed that the fight was to take place in Mississippi. The champion had sat right behind Nicoll during this speech. In obedience to an order from his counsel he rose, and, leaning over tbe lawyer's table, carefully adjusted a pen in his muscular fingers, and, with his head bent on one side, laboriously wrote his name on the papers. When Sullivan left the court he drove to the Yanderbilt Hotel, where he had lunch eon with Deputy Sheriff Childs, Detective Sergeant Adams, Jack Barnitt and Dan Murphy. SULLIVAN VERT BLUE. The champion felt verv blue, and was in clined to be surly. "What's a teller going to do," he said, "when he can't follow his business? Eightin' is my business. That's how I make a livin', and I ain't got any other way of doin it." Then he moaned over the loss that the forced journey to Mississippi would entail. The Academy of Music, which had been en gaged for the big fellow's bene fit to-morrow- night, was to be paid lor by a percentage of the receipts; but about $2,000 worth of tickets had been sold, and this was considered as a dead loss. Then the Academy of Mnslc iu Brooklyn had been engaged for a like purpose lor Saturday niht. A deposit has been paid to the manager, and this will be lost unless the date for the show can be set forward. Deputy Sheriff Childs was anxious to get back home as soon as possible, and as nothing ronld be gained by delay, Sullivan AGREED TO START AT ONCE. None of his friends cared to go with him except Muldoon, Murphy and Barnitt, all of whom were compelled to remain In town on business, and so Clune, tbe hotel proprie tor, said he would see the big fcHow through.

The motive which prompted the deed cannot be surmised, but it is whispered that hers is a case of unrequited affection.

Robert Mar vel, ot Pike township, this county, has reached the fiftieth day of his fast A doc tor from this city goes out every fifth day. The doctor said to-night that Marvel has not eaten an ounce of solid food in 60 days, and may live on in this way for 100. He continued: "That story recently published about his eating a piece of pie and some otner things is un true. During all these days he has taken several pints of milk. He is quite vig orous and pugilistic This fasting has entirely changed his nature. Before he was very genial, now he is ready to fight any one who comes near his bed. I have great trouble in feeling his pulse. He strites at me, and if I tet my hand on his wrist he twists it until I have to let go." The disease Mr. Marvel is suffering from, the doctor thinks, has affected his brain. It is a disease of the arteries. Bound, bony accumulatibns can be felt in the arteries at the wrist, and are probably present through out the system. These cause naralysis of the swallowing apparatus, which prevents the taking in of food. Marvel is 86 years old. O'Snlllvan Wants a Change of Venae.
