When Confronted by the Evidence Ono of the Accused Made a Fall Confes sion of the Crime. A SPECIAL GEAXD JUKI INDICTS SIX A conspiracy to pack the jury in the Cronin murder case so that a conviction could not be secured has been unearthed. The fall details of the plot are in the hands of the officers of the law, and six indict ments hare already been returned by a grand jury summoned for the purpose. As much as $5,000 was offered to sec are the ser vices of a single corrupt juror. Several court officials are prominent among the criminals. JSrECIAl TELEGBAM TO THI DISrATCIt.J Chicago, October 12. Sensation after . sensation in quick succession was the order of the day in the Cronin case, and at mid night a round half-dozen men are under in dictment on a charge which will land them, and probably many others, in the peniten tiary. The names of those who have been officially returned by the special grand jury are: Alexander J. Hawks, Mark Solomon, , Fred TV. Smith, Tom Cavanaugh, Joseph Kohn and Jerry O'Donnell. These men are indicted for connection with one of the boldest and most corrupt plots ever brought to the notice of the pub lic. Beside those named the conspiracy is believed to include, notonlyconnty officials, bnt outsiders of high standing, and the same of Alexander Sullivan is once more mentioned in connection with the murder of H Doctor Cronin. Even Women In the Plot. Lawyer Hills, the trusted assistant oi State's Attorney Longenecker, has made public facts which show that the arch-conspirators, not content with bribery of man, have attempted to drag even innocent women into the plot, and thus gain the end which the friends of the defense have been work ing on for the last five months. "It will be remembered," said the attor ney, "that on last "Wednesday afternoon a young man whj is employed as a foreman in a large establishment in this city was examined and refused." It is understood, though not stated bv Attorney Mills, that the name of the venireman attempted to be bribed is George S. Tachappat He is the foreman for J3. V. Page & Co., oil merchants, 41 to 46 Erie street. Approached by a Bailiff. "On Thursday alternocn," said Mr.Mills, "a very prominent citizen of Chicago en tered the courtroom and very privately communicated to the counsel for the State that his foreman,the venireman in question, before being called to the jury box had been approached by a bailiff of the ccurt with an offer of 51,000 to vote for the acquit tal oi the defendants. He said: 'This is not a "cock-and-bull" story and I bring it 1 before yon in the interest of public justice. He theu wtnt away and the next morning one of the counsel for the State went down to the factory of the man whote foreman had been offered a bribe, and the moment he saw the foreman he recognized him as a man whose honesty and independence bad im pressed itself upon the counsel for the State while he was sitting in the jury box. He Sacrificed a Friend. The man made a full statement and was requested by the counsel for the State to come to the State's Attorney's office'and re peat his statement in full. The man, with tears in his eyes,said: "It involves a friend, but if it involved myself I would uphold the law and honor." The gist of his state ment to the counsel, which he subsequently gave in detail to the States Attorney is as follows: In obedience to the summons he came to the Court House on Tuesday afternoon, sat in the ante-room, but was not called. He came again on "Wednesday morning and stayed in the ante-room again, and about half-past 10 o'clock a man came from the courtroom into the ante-room whojwas an old friend of ths venireman. The fact also ap pears that the wives of the two men were friends before they were married. A Very Pertinent Query. The man who came from the courtroom to the venireman suggested that they go out and have a cigar, and the two men went to a neighboring place, and after having a cigar, while there, the man from the court room said to the venireman: "Do you want to make some money?" The venireman innocently answered: "Certainly I do." "Very well, you get on the jury and stick for an acquittal and you will have $1 000. The contract and arrangement can be' carried ont with your wife. It can be arranged so that she shall wear a certain colored dress if the money is paid to her on ascertain day. If the money is not paid to her on that certain day she is to wear a certain colored dress and the contract is to be off." The venireman turned reproachfully to his friend and said: "I am not that kind ofaman," whereupon the bailiff said: "I am working for the Court" Aa Increase la the A'rlce. t the noon adjournment the venireman went back to his place of business and fcub sequenfly returned to the Court House at 2 o'clock, after which he was detained and called to the jury box, where he remained until 4:30 o'clock, when he was excused for cause. He left the Court House intending to return to his place ot business, and on leaving the Court House met on the steps leading to the sidewalk the man who had attempted to bribe him. The man turned to him and said: "Where were you this noontime. I looked every where for you. They said: 'We will make it 5,000, and him, make him do it"' It was too late, however, for the venire man had been excused for cause, bnt he at once returned to his place of business, hav ing reproached the man for putting such a low estimate upon him, and reported to his employer, the prominent citizen, what had taken place, who, the following day, re ported it to the proseoution. The BalllU" Forced to Confess. Pursuant to appointment the venireman attended at the State's Attorney's office, and having made a full statement of everything that took place, was requested to step into ante-room, and the bailiff was summoned. He proved to be one of the bailiffs of the Criminal Court who, during the trial, or at tempt to procure a jury, has been in charge of one ot the fire prisoners Coughlin. The bailifi was questioned closely by the State's Attorney and his associates, but professed profound ignorance until the venireman was called from the anteroom. The venireman was requested to repeat the statement he had made, which he did. where upon the bailiff made a complete confession, in which he implicated several prominent persons, including another bailiff. The attorneys fortbe prosecution, together with Chief Hubbard and others, at once went to work on the case, and have dis closed one of the most deliberate attempts to corrupt a jury and to defeat the law of Illinois which has yet come to the public attention. Any Number of Witnesses. "We have had confessions here this very day," said Mr. Mills at a subsequent inter view late this evening. "These confessions are from 6 to 10 in number. They are ab solute, giving us the whole miserable con spiracy. They reveal a most damnable or ganization against the law of the land, a conspiracy against the jurisprudence of this country that will startle the continent when it is thoroughly known a conspiracy of ramifications, of audacity, a conspiracy in volving men whose names will be a surprise to the country. 'It is no exaggeration when I say that you cannot magnify the damnable outrage of this conspiracy. In the taking off of Dr. Cronin, and the manner in which it was done, the whole world was startled. This second conspiracy will alike startle the whole world. It is an assault on the very integrity of our institutions." The Jnron to be Corrupted. Salomon has turned over to the State's attorney a list of names and addresses said to be prospective corrupt jurors. Only two of the list had yet been summoned and neither was yet examined. Salomon said the list had been furnished to him by Bailiff Hanks while they were seated in the court room just behind the Cronin suspects, whom they were guarding. Hanks had said $2,000 would be given for a fixed juror half to the man in the box and half to the bailiffs'. "Last night," Mr. Mills' narrative con tinued, "the men on the list were inter viewed by the Chief of Police. One man stated that he had been approached with an offer of S2.000 to go on the jury by Fred W. Smith, a hardware manufacturer's agent Another citizen was also approached by Smith. O'Donnell's part was similar to that of Smith's. He sounded-at least one man, and offered him $1,000. O'Donnell. who was arrested early in the evening, is said to have confessed that a person understood to be Kavanagb, guaran teed that the money offered would be forth coming. The supposed corrupted venire men were carefully instructed as to their manner while being examined in court, being told how they should answer, and be gruff with the lawyers for the defense. A STEAM BICYCLE. A Locomotive Which Hauls Two-story Passenger Cars First Kailroad of the Kind In the World Two Trains on a Standard Gnnse Track. rsrECIAI. TELEOBAM TO THE DISFATCII.I New Yobk, October 12. About 100 persons who are interested in railroads went to Coney Island this afternoon to attend the opening of the standard gauge Boynton Bicycle Bailroad. The Sea Beach and Brighton Bailroad of Coney Island has been purchased bv the Boynton Company and fitted up with their new system. The Boynton engine is really a steam bicycle. Its tandem wheels are placed airectly under it, and like the similarly ar ranged wheels of the coaches, they run on a single rail. The passenger coaches are built two stories high and are divided into com partments, eachholding fourpeople. High in the air above the rail on which the engine and cars run there is a guard rail, supported on crane-necked posts. This is several feet above the two-story cars. Arms reaching up from the body of the cars, as well as from the engine, support small horizontal wheels, which clutch the guard rail and keep the train on the single lail below. The upper rail bears np weight, and the in ventor declares the side pressure is very slight By this system the capacity of a road is doubled, and it is said also the expense of traction very much reduced. The cars are so narrow that a train can be run on each rail of the present standard gauge road, and yet leave eight inches between the trains. The only addition to an ordinary road needed is a stationary rail overhead. To day.the excursion party was taken over the Sea Beach road by an engine and a two story passencer car 43 feet long. The car ran very smooth. DOST WAST fllil. A Negro Relased Admission tq Eastern Medical Colleges. Baltimore, October 12. James O. Credit, a young colored man, being mis taken for a Spaniard, was given to under stand that he would be admitted to the Bal timore University School of Medicine, but, upon it being known that he was a negro, he was refused admittance. He then ap plied at the Maryland University, and being again turned down, will go to the Long Island Medical College. Dr. Michael, Dean of the Maryland Uni versity, says that the refusal to adin it Credit was not based on race on the partof the faculty but simply as a matter of expediency.

Two Russians Attacked and Nearly Killed A Boy's Novel Method of gabdulne the Enraged Animal. Philadelphia, October 12. Two men, who belong to a tribe of wandering Russians now camping in Wissinoming woods, were nearly killed by a big brown grizzly bear last evening, on Dark Bun lane, near Trenton avenue. The bear belongs to the two men who were attacked, and they mate a precarious living by taking him on dancing tours. When on these tours he is always securely muzzled and led by a chain. Yes terday the men thought they would see how the bear would behave while off the chain and released of his muzzle. The animal acted in a docile manner for the greater part of the day, and the men thought he bad be come entirely domesticated. About 6 o'clock in the evening they sat down by the road side in Dark Kun lane and began eating some slices of bread which they carried in their pockets. They were entirely oblivious of Brnin, who was hungry, too. The powerful brute finally decided to seize a share of the feast and he crawled np to one of the men and seized the unsnspecting wanderer in his claws. The victim shouted and his com panion Bprang to his help. He tried to get his friend from the bear's clutches, but his efforts only served to further anger the beast He held his victim with one power ful front claw, while he extended the other and drew the second man to him. When both men found themselves fairly in the bear's clutches they screamed in terror. They struggled in every way to re lease themselves from the viselike grasp, but were unsuccessful. "While they were fighting against almost certain death, Albert Dungan, a 15-year-old boy who was riding a mustang not far awav, heard their piteous appeals for help and dashed to the rescue. He took in the situation at a glance and bravely tried to ride his pony, head first, into the bear. This was more than his spirited steed could be forced to do. Failing in this the boy turned the horse's head around and backed it np against bruin. He was just in time. The bear was abont to bring his ponderous jaws down on one of the man's shoulders, when the little mustang, provoked by con tact with the unyielding mass, let fly its heels with such force as to literally kick the burly grizzly half across the lane. The bear was so surprised by this sudden and unex pected attack that he dropped his human load and started to tnrn to face his new enemy. Before he conld get fairly into a fighting position the little mustang's heels again flew ont, and again the bear, now thoroughly confused and vanquished, dropped in a heap. It was the work of only a few moments' time to place the chain and muzzle on the defeated brute. The two men were almost stripped. Their clothing was in rags, and they were badly scratched and bruised in their encounter. .They were so grateful to yonng Dungan that they wanted to make him a present of the bear, but the boy sen sibly declined. THE END SEAR. Unless the Governor Interferes tho Death Watch Will be Placed on Gibtin. rsrECIAI. TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCn.t New Toek, October 12. In a few days the death watch will again be placed on Charles Giblin, the murderer of Mrs. Val entine Ooetz, unless Governor Hill should in the meantime grant a lurther respite or commute the death sentence. Oiblin was to have been hanged on August 23, but was re spited for 60 days to enable him to present to Governor Hill certain evidence, which Giblin claimed wonld have been presented at his trial but for the fact that he was handicapped bv lack of money and the haste with which he was forced to trial. Tbe testimony, which is given in 3,000 type-written pages, is now in the hands of Governor Hill. The referee, Bernard Douras, who was appointed to take the evidence and submit it to the Governor, said that connsel would set a day next week when thev will make their argument upon the evidence.

A Deputy United States Marsbnl Killed In Alabama. Htottsville, Ala., October 12. News has jnst reached this city from a reliable source of the murder of Deputy United States Marshal C. T. Sparks, near Bell Green, Franklin county, yesterday byLock Ezzell. The facts, as near as they can be ob tained, are substantially as follows: It seems that on Monday last Sparks arrested James Ezzell for a violation of the United States revenue laws, whereupon Lock Ez zell, a brother of James, came up with a gun in bis band and succeeded in releasing James. Sparks then went to Bell Green and arrested Tom W. Ezzell, another brother of James and Lock, who was bound over, and in default of bond was committed to jail by a United States commissioner. On the day of the murder Sparks went to Bell Green with two men to assist him in serving other warrants. He attempted to ar rest Lock Ezzell, who ran about a quarter of a mile to a syrup mill, where he stopped, and, as Sparks came up, he shot him, in flicting wounds from which he died in a short time. It is said Sparks made a dying statement, in which he said that Ezzell shot him from ambush. WAST THEIE H0SEI. Salnc to Recover on Judgments Against a Dcfanct Railroad. New Yobk, October 12.

SOME YERI STARTLING SURMISES, The Tories and Their Allies Defeated fa Their Chosen Etroniholds, A number of unexpected Tory defeats in quick succession have greatly encouraged the adherents of Mr. Gladstone. The Grand Old Man telegraphs to The Dispatch cor respoudent that he regards these victories as an important step in the march toward home rule for Ireland. General Bonlanger has been, obliged to postpone his attempt to re gain power in France, but will take advan tage of the first favorable opportunity. IBT CABLE TO THE DISFATCH.1 London, October 12. (Copyright) Lit tle more than a fortnight ago Joseph Cham berlain, in a speech containing a large Quantity of his anti-Gladstone venom, in-. formed the people that they were on the eve of a general election in miniature, the re sult of which would clearly prove the feel ing of the country In regard to home rule. The country has spoken, but not in the way the arch-renegade confidently predicted. At Dundee the Tories and their mug wump allies did not dare face the contest, and the Liberal candidate Leng has a walk over. At Peterboroueh the influence of the noble family of Fitzwilliam, heretofore paramount and almost unquestioned, was opposed and overcome, the Liberals thus winning a seat from the Unionists. Infuriated by this unexpected reverse, the Tories and Mugwumps concentrated upon Elgin all the weapons of intimida tion and corruption which had been inefieo tual at Peterborough. The landlord screw was mercilessly applied to the poor crofter farmers and villagers of the remote High lands; the law of registration was twisted and strained in a shameless fashion, with the result that 200 sturdy fishermen, known to be home rulers, were removed from the electoral lists at the beginning of the con test VICTORY IN EVEEX DIEECTION. The Liberal candidate, the Anglo-Indian banker Keay, unimpeachable in his politi cal principles, but of brusque and almost offensive manners, quarreled with his agent and his election committee, and there was talk of swopping horses in mid-stream, but in the face of the enemy personal differences were put aside, and when polling day came the Liberal was elected by a majority nearly five times that at the last election in 188S. At Sleaford the Liberals opposed the re election of Chaplin, the newly appointed Minister of Agriculture, unwisely, as many thought, because it is customary to allow a walkover in snch cases, bnt the Liberal partv managers desired partly to test the state of feeling in the Tory agricultural stronghold, which had up to that time been neglected by the Home Bule propagandists, partly to ascertain how Chaplin, a leading protectionist, would- treat that question pn promotion to the Cabinet rank, and lastly and most particularly, to find out the numerical strength of the Unionists. a The constituency was not contested in 1886 when Home Bule was the battle cry, and, as it had been claimed that -many Liberals in the division had become Unionists, the increase, if any, in the Tory poll would show the numerical extent of the revolt Chaplin increased his figures by just seven votes, and the battle was worth fighting, if only to show that in one constituency, at any rate, the Unionists could be numbered by units. The ex posure was crashing and humiliating for Hartington, Chamberlain and the rest of the leaders without the rank and file. LIBERALS PEEL ENCOT7BAGED. The last fight in Chamberlain's general election in miniature was fonght in North Buckinghamshire yesterday, and the result, made known this afternoon, is the loss of another Tory-Unionist seat by a majority of over 200. The victory was won, as at Peter borough, against territorial influence, and, as in Elgin, in spite of landlord intimida tion. The immediate effect of these striking successes is to give such confidence to the Liberals that they have had the unheard-of audacity to set np a candidate for the va cancy in Brighton caused by the suicide of the Tory member, Sir Tindall Bobertson. At the last election the Tory majority wds over 3,000. The Liberals, even in the confidence begotten of snecess, do not sup pose thev can win the seat, but thev do not doubt their ability to reduce considerably the Torv poll. Mr. Gladstone is at Hawarden, too far away to be communicated with except by telegraph. In reply to an inquiry wired by your correspondent the Grand Old Man telegraphs to-night: "I cannot undertake to describe with precision at this early date the full effect of the recent elections, but they appear to mark a stage in the progress of the Home Bule controversy. BOULANGER'S HEART FAILED HIM. The French Expedition Has Not Yet Been Entirely Abandoned. However. BT CABLE TO THE DISFATCII.I London, October 12. Copyright The faint heart of the brave General has once more averted a crisis in French history. Boulanger left London last Tuesday with his plans entirely completed for an im mediate descent upon the French coast Thursday morning was the appointed time, and either Brest, Nantes or Cherbourg the Elace. When he learned that his plans had een made known and that the Government had taken measnrea to insnre him a warm reception he faltered. His chance then was to strike suddenly and swiftly, but he chose to await a more favorable opportunity. Nevertheless the project is by no means abandoned, and secret and reliable informa tion from Jersey is that a most active or ganization is in progress for an early descent upon the French coast. Already the League of Patriots is prepar ing the way by circulating a manifesto in the North of "France, calculated to bring the military under the Boulangist standard. The idea is to excite the patriotic sentiments of the army by means of a cleverly worded pamphlet in which the recovery of Alsace Lorraine is declared to be hopeless under the present regime.

TBY CABLE T6 THE DISPATCH. 1 London, October 12. Copyright At Clonmel, Tippcrary, this evening, a young farmer named Patrick Dillon was com mitted for trial on a eharge of murdering his Xather, by beating him about the head with a stick on February i8, 1838. The case is a most remartaple one. -The doctors who attended old Dillon in his last illness certified that his death was due to natural canses, and it was not until June of this year that an ex-soldier named Byrne, who, hy the" way. was discharged from the army with a bad eharacter, accused" young DiUon of the crime. The Government took the case in hand and ordered the exhumation of the body, which took place last month. When the coffin was taken up a small hole was no ticed in the lid over the head of the corpse and the body was turned over on its side in such a manner as to lead to the inference that the man was not dead when buried and must have turned in a dreadful struggle for life. The surgeons who conducted the post mortem examination discovered a small hole behind the ear, whence several fractures radiated. This wound the deceased doctors positively declared was not on the old man's head when they attended him, but it must have been inflicted during life or soon after death and before decomposition commenced. The prisoner declares that tbe whole affair is a diabolical conspiracy against him con cocted by Byrne out of personal spite, and he suggests that Byrne went to the grave yard soon after the burial, dug out the earth and drove a small pickax through the coffin into the head of the corpse, delaying the accusation until he thought nature wonld have obliterated all traces oi the crime save the fracture in the' skull. Sev eral witnesses, one of them Byrne's son, have sworn thatthey saw Patrick Dillon beating his father; but on the other hand the wound on the head was in a line with the hole in the coffin lid, and Byrne paljl taoK than one night visit to the lonely graveyard at Mul linahon.

Cody .was under indictment for shooting McGregor about two years ago, which in dictment was found at the April term last, of Warren Superior Court. Cody promptly gave bond for his appearance at the October Superior Court, which embraced the pres ent week, bnt owing to his unreadiness for trial this week, he decided to forfeit his bond, in prder to get six months more for preparing his case. His leading attorney, Colonel H. T. Lewis, of Greensboro, is absent in New York, while his local counsel Emory Cason, Esq., and E. P. Davis, Esq., have asserted all the week that Cody would not only be on hand for trial at the next court, but that he was perfectly satisfied with his defense, that his shooting McGregor was justifiable, and that the public would so consider it, when it should be revealed. McGregor's dread of this revelation is now ascribed as reason for his infamous murder of to-day. The story leading up to this affair is a most complicated one. Both gentlemen are wealthy and hitherto have been influential members of the community. Botn had been fast friends for a score of years and there is a veil of mystery enveloping the whole affair, which invests it wlth a weird interest, as is almost always the ease in every affair of this kind. A woman, -or ebtrasE. A woman has been lugsed in to supply any hiatus that may exist and furnish webb and woof for the manitold stories in circulation as to the origin of the difficulty. It is but justice to say, however, that these, rumors appear to be entirely without foundation and are repudiated alike by the reputed as sailant and his victim. The facts, as gath-. ered from strictly reliable sources, are briefly these: At 820 p. Ji. on the 23d of December, 1887, Mr. McGregor was returning to his home, which is situated in the heart of the town, from a meeting of the Boyal Arca num. After entering the gate of his yard f he was shot by some one concealed in the adjacent shrubbery, tne Dau entering nis right side below the nipple. He was able to reach his dwelling, about 60 feet distant, but fell in the hallway. As soon as possible, Dr. B. W. Hubert and son, associate practitioners, were sum moned. These medical experts dressed the wonnd and rendered every other necessary assistance. The next day the ball, which had passed clear through the body to the opposite side, was extracted. Their patient remained in an extremely critical condition for a week and then began slowly to im prove. His physicians said that death was to be expected within an hour after the shooting, and that 99 persons in 100 would have died. no attempt to escape. Mr. Cody, the alleged perpetrator of the deed, who it is said has since confessed the crime, made no attempt to escape, but went to his business as nsnal the followine dav. Things remained quiet until the grand jury met in April, 1889, more than a year after ward, when a true bill was found against Mr. Cody. He was arrested, and after the execution of a bond for $2,500 to answer the charge, was released. Mr. Codv's friends declared that he did not dread the result A curions circum stance of the affair is the refusal of Mc Gregor to institute suit He spoke very freely if the attempt to assassinate him and the snbstance of his talk Is given. Mr. Mc Gregor affirms that for 20 years his relations with Cody had been of the most friendly and intimate character. He was not aware, previous to the com mission of the deed, of any ill will whatever, on his part Wnen he entered his gate and received the murderous bullet, though feel ing the shock, he thought it was cansed by the discharge of a cannon cracker and asked who fired it. There was no reply, however, and feeling that he was wonnded, he shouted "murder," and running ont or the gate gave the alarm. His assailant had made off, how ever. Dpon reaching home McGregor fell, overcome by loss of blood. Medical help, as above stated, was summoned and his condi tion for several days was very critical. CODY'S PBIENDLT CAIXS. During that time Cody called frequently, expressing the greatest sympathy and even offering to nnrse him at night -These pleasant relations continued tor some time. At length, however, while confined to his bed, Mr. McGregor learned that a certain negro named Andrew Davis, by his own confession, had been hired by Cody to kill him for the sum of $300, but he conld not snmmon courage to do it It seems that McGregor had taken this negro out of jail and otherwise befriended him. Hearing this, Mr. Cody called upon Mc Gregor and consulted with him upon the Eropriety of hanging the negro to make im tell the truth. This McGregor 'failed to do, not crediting the statement Several weeks after, becoming satisfied from certain developments that Mr. Cody was his assail ant, he addressed him a threatening letter .charging him with the deed and making certain demands. Thereupon Cody confessed the crime and threw himself upon the mercy of his antag onist for the sake ot his wife and child, but begged that he would kill him, as he had no longer any desire to live. He even sug gested the manner and place by which this should be done, proposing that McGregor should meet him in Jeff H. Cody's store on the following Thursday, at which time he would assault McGregor with a small pocket knile which would FUBNISH A PBETEXT for McGregor to shoot him. This McGregor JfetZZZZ savs he refused to do. and declari wonld not harm a hair of his head. he CCodvl and himself could never 1 the same communitv hereafter, and he leave for pood within a limited time (1 davs These terms were accented by Cody, bnt have not been complied with. This is the storv, according to McGregor. Cody has a host of relatives in the, county and-a strong backing. The friends of Mc Gregor do not hesitate to say they consider, his life in danger. Mr. Cody; then a mem ber of the City Council, was instrumental' in havintr a reward offered for the appre hension of the assassin, and alto addressed. a letter to Uovernor uordon asiung tnat- tne State should take action in the premises. If guilty, never has such stupendous du plicity been exhibited. The lady who rumor implicates as the canse of ther crime is one of the fairest and purest of Georgia's daughters, againt whom not even a shadow ot spspicion could possibly rest. It wonld be almost a crime itself to mention her name in this connec tion. STATEYfiT. 0. A. The Association Malta for the Year Chosen A New Financial Policy Outlined Dr. F. A. Graham, of Chester, Elected President. fSKCIAL TXUtORAX TO THE DISTATCH.t Netv Casixe, October 12.

The chief swvwfn th seheaw ia Mr. Charles Barso to' t editor andi-jiiotiiety of J.I JkTCigrttto liauy-Amencano. tie nas already through the medium of his paper, collected nearly:f3,000 in cash, besides al most as much in articles to be sold at an Italian fair which will be held in this city in aid of the scheme. Mr. Barsotti has also sent letters to the Italian Minister of Public Instruction, Signor Briselli. requesting him to bring the matter before the leading Italian sculptors. The Minister has done this and next month there will be on exhibition in the Italian Museum of Arts products of the skill of nearly all the sculptors in Italy. A com mittee will be appointed by the King to select the best model from those submitted. This will be immediately forwarded to America, and if it meets with the approval of Mr. Barsotti and his col leagues an order for the Ixecution of the design will be returned. The statue will be of giganticlsixe, will be made of Carrara marble and will cost nearly $20,000. A site for the statue has already been chosen. It is on Battery place, near the Barge Office.

New Obleans, October 12. To-day Attorney General Bogers, before the Civil District Court, sued out two writs of seques tration, one against Maurice J. Hart and the other aeainst Miss Laura Gaines, sister of Mrs. E. A. Burke, both to recover cer tain portions of the stolen State bonds, which he alleges to have been transferred to these parties by ex-State Treasurer Burke. The necessary documents directing the Sher iff to sequester these bonds were immedi ately executed under the Attorney General's personal supervision. These are constitu tional bonds which were unlawfully taken from the treasury and pledged by Burke, no consolidated bonds having been exchanged therefore, or any other consideration given the State. These complete the $15,400 new Louisiana fours that have been taken from the Treas ury. There are still outstanding about 5300,000 worth of bonds, which disappeared during Burke's term of office, and these, it has been shown, were used by Burke as col lateral and were finally disposed of, mostly in this city, and so well distributed that only one or two parties have among their holdings more than 10 per cent of the stolen bonds- After deducting the recovered bonds from Burke's deficit, he is still about $400, 000 short THE 0BLT GENUINE.
