NOT SUFFICIENTLY PURGED The French Ministry Needs Further Revising. Renewed Activity on the Part of the Royalists. A Close Watch Kept on the Camps of the Conspirators. Interesting- Developments In the Pa nama Inquiry Damaging Admis sions Made by M. Kurd on the Witness Stand. By the Associated Press.l Paris, Jan. 11.—There is a strong feeling in the chamber of deputies, ac well as among the general public, that Ribot has not yet sufficiently purged the ministry who, whether innocent or guilty, have been under suspicion of connection with the Panama scandal. In deference to the demand for further reconstruction, Ribot had a lengthy conversation with Admiral Gervata, chief of the department of marine and colonies, in regard to accepting the min istry of marine and colpniea in place of Burdean. Admiral Gervais declined the ministry. At a cabinet council later it waß decided to detach the colonies from the marine and attach them to the de partment of commerce, under M, Sieg fried. Tbe marine portfolio will prob ably be offered at once to another high naval officer. If Ribot should fail to explain to the satisfaction of the cham ber the reasons ior the changes made in the ministry, the Royalists will inter pellate him on the subject. ROYALIST ACTIVITY, The Royalists have shown great ac tivity within the paat 24 hours and the authorities appear to be in possession of some new and important information as to their designs. There has been con siderable telegraphing between Madrid and tbe ministry of foreign affairs, and while the object of the communications is secret, enough is known to make it certain that a watch on Royalist in-' trignes beyond the Pyrenees is kept, and that an equally careful watch is be ing maintained on the Royalists' plot ting in Paris.. The announcement that General Sauseier will remain on the activdSist as military governor of Paris, after paajsv ing the age of retirement, ia construe 1 as an indication that the government means to be prepared for any emergency. General Sausaier is considered the most reliable man in the army, and would by invaluable in the event of a public dis turbance. sansleboy's palpaiilr quilt, $ The commiesion of inquiry appointed in the chamber today heard th » t< ■ ti mony of members of the lottery loan association, showing beyond reasonable doubt that Sansleroy waa to a great ex tent, if not completely, guilty of the charges against him. It was decided to inquire into the contracts, the com mittee declaring that 77,000,000 franca had been virtually stolen, and that light on tbe subject was necessary. It ia reported that M. dv Freycinet, ex-minister of war, and M. Floquet, ex president of the chamber of deputies, were examined by Magistrate Franque ville. They, of course, are not under arrest or accusation. OHABLEB DE LESSEPS' STATEMENTS. With reference to the statements of Charles de Lesseps' attention having been called to tbe statements of Provost de Launy and M. de Lamarzelle, the latter said he waa told by Charles de Leaeeps that whenever a company issued fresh capital, large sums of money had to be expended on tbe press. Borne financial concerns even made the news papers a monthly allowance, but in the case of tbe Panama company, tbe journalists who flocked to its offices whenever a freab issue was made re ceived nothing. In spite of this the expenses of the different issuei reached a considerable sum. They did not, however, amount to 6 per cent. Various financial houses who formed a so-called guarantee syndicate and whose co-opera tion was indispensable, received large sums without really guaranteeing any thing. Whenever a fresh issue waa an nounced, numbers of people called on the company and offered assistance. Moat of these were Jews. It was not only bankers who made these offers, but all sorts of influential persona who would praise or decry the operations aa they received more or leea money. LABOE PROFITS FOR OUKAT RISKS. De Leaeeps added that there was noth ing astonishing in the large profits made by the contractors. Their high charges could not be cut down. They ran great risks. De Lesseps concluded hia state ment with the words: "If certain per sons and certain thinge are attacked, the success of the undertaking will be compromised, and those who make those attacks will contribute to the taking over of the enterprise by Ameri cana. Tboae who attack the Panama project are the people who wish to strike a blow at the Suez canal." A SOCIALIST MANIFESTO. The Socialist union has issued to the people a manifesto which says: "Opportunism has become engulfed in a quagmire of blood shed at Four mies and mud from the Panama scan dal. As it sinks the nation's workers, the system of delivering up parliament and the presidency to a handful of criminals, mußt be abolished. If the republic is to be a republic of honesty, and to maintain the place it holds with co much glory in thevangard of nations, we must organise a government by tbe people, through the medium of uni versal suffrage." The manifesto cloeea with a call for a great meeting at Paria on Saturday. The manifeeto is signed by 15 Socialiat members of the chamber. " CHARQBS AGAINST DB FREYCINET. Le Gauloia accuses De Freycinet of having been implicated with Baron Reinach and Cornelius Hers in the swindling of a man named Wenzel, who invented a new railway brake, out of his patent. Wenzel died mysteriously on the day he received a check for 500,000 francs from Hens, on the same day Reinach died. DIPUTY LAUR's SKIRT* CLBARBD. The statement recently published that tbe house of Boulangiat Deputy Laur had been searched by the police in con nection with the Panama inquiry and incriminating; documents found, proves entirely without foundation. LATEST DEVKOLPMKNTB. Deputy Hubbard has announced his intention to request tbe ministry to take steps to hasten tbe next general elec tion. The ministers have decided to agree to the urgency of Hubbard's re quest for an interpellation and will make their r°ply practically a minis terial declaration. According to a semi-official statement issued tonight M. Baihut, wnen he was minister of public works in 1886, sub mitted to his colleages in the ministry a mutilated version of Engineer Ros seau's report on the Panama canal pro ject. Rosseau'B report, it is now well known, condemned the wnole enter prise. THE PANAMA TRIAL. Examination of the Accused—M. Eiffel's Damaging Admissions. Paths, Jan. 11.—The trial of Charles de Lesseps, Fontane, Cottu and Eiffel, accused of complicity in the Panama canal fraude, was continued in the court of appeals today. Long before the hour set for the opening of the court, the room was filled to its utmost capacity with a crowd of interested spectators, to most of whom the prisoners were well known. The audience discussed the evidence given by De Lesseps yesterday and the general opinion seemed to be that he had not bettered bis case by his statements regarding the transactions between himself and the late Baron de Reinach. Little confidence iB placed in hie declaration that he had no knowl edge as to the usee to which the large sums of money he handed - tbe baron were to be put, beyond tbe fact that they were to be expended for the canal company. H. PONTANE EXAMINED. When the court solemnly convened President Perivier proceeded to examine Fontane, who said that shortly after the formation of the Panama Canal com pany he waa placed in charge of the company's business with the press. He detailed at length what his duties were, and gave much valuable information regarding the bribery of newspapers to prevent hostile attacks upon the com pany and prevent the publication of matter that would have shown the true condition of affaire on the isthmus of Panama. Fontane stated tbat he had held hia position aa manager of the com pany's preas affaire until 1885, when the exactions of the newspapers became so heavy that he was compelled to abandon his position. Siuce that time he had been merely private secretary of De Lesseps. He had distributed to the presß only 60,000 franca in dra<"ta pay able to bearer. m. oottb's testimony. Upon the conclusion of Fontane'a ex amination Baron Cottu waa called upon to explain bin connection with the bribery and corruption of officials and others. Cottu declared that hia dutiea as director of the Panama company were merely mechanical. He dealt exclusive ly with tbe internal administration of the work of the company. It. Eiffel's damaging admissions. In the examination of M. Eiffel, today, he admitted he had cashed checks for 12,000,000 francß which were ostensibly drawn io pay for machinery, while he actually expended only 1,500, --OCO franca for that purpose. He gave 2,000,000 franca to M. Hebrard to secure contracts with tbe company, and 2,000, --000 to De Reinach to aecure the latter'a influence in hie favor with the govern ment. Two millions was also paid by him to a certain contractor, whose favor, like that of Hebrard and Reinach, waa indispensable. BEMUNERATION FOR HIS BISKS. All these admissions were made only after a severe course of questioning. The presiding judge then asked Eiffel what he did with the 6,000,000 francs received by him for taking to pieces, shipping to the isthmus and reconstruct ing machinery which, aa a matter of fact, he never even supplied iv thia country. "I kept that sum," replied Eiffel, lamely, "because it formed part of my remuneration for the risk 1 waa undertaking." ''Your contract," said the judge, "provided that you should receive 30 per cent to be paid within 30 days of the date of sending the orders; now you took 2,875,000 franks from one firm ac percentage, although the order was never executed." Eiffel replied tbat it was not bis fault that the order wae not executed. He himself had often paid on contracts which were never executed, besides thia contingency waa contemplated by tbe general condition of the transaction. "I consider such transactions void," eaid the judge severely, "siuce it waa the result of error, to call it nothing worse. The procureur-general will tell you more about this tomorrow and at aubeequent sittings." Eiffel quailed visibly under theae worda. M, Florry, the government account ant who examined the accounte of the company, testified that Eiffel had been paid 69,000,000 franca on bie contract, and made a profit of 33,000,000 franca on it. TUUN ON THS HOSE. Prisoners Create Pandemonium in the San Bernardino Jail. San Bebnabdino, Jan. 11. —About 50 tramps confined in the jail here were put on an allowance of one meal a day for Betting fire to tbe jail. 'I hia has made tbem vicioua, and they are howling day and night and pounding the steel cages in a perfect fury with furniture and clube of any kind. The jailer is powerless to keep order, and threatens to turn on the hose and flood the jail. Rheumatism knocked higher than a kite. Mr. J. N. Bncher. Mineral Point, Ohio, deposes and says; "1 have used Salvation Oil for rheu matism, and in one or two applications knocked it higher thtnakite." CHOKER AND HILL ARE OUT A Strange Rumor Circulated at Albany. The Tammany Boss Criticises the Senator. Murphy Will Not Be the Tool of His Colleague. A Monkey and Parrot Time In the Kan sas Legislature—No Prospect of a Compromise—Polit ical Notes. By the Associated Press. New York, Jan. 11.—Men are whis pering a startling rumor to each other in Albany tonight. "Boss Croker and Senator Hill are out," says the Herald's Albany correspondent. The caustic criticism made by the Tammany leader on the senatoi'a presence and action during the meeting of the electoral col lege is not forgotten. It ia asserted that Croker repeated hia condemnation to several political friends at the governor's reception, and said bluntly: "Hill has done the Democratic party a deadly in jury." However this may be, it is cer tain the machine magnates have had a serious difference among themselves. How far the resentment of Croker to wards Senator Hill is likely to go no one carea to predict, but it ia taken for granted by politicians that the big com bination has been broken by the senator. They also believe Murpny will rciuee to be made a tool of by his associate in the United States senate. It is said New York intends honestly to support Cleveland, and that a policy of pacifica tion will be adopted toward him from now on by Tammany. It looks very much as if tbe future action of Murphy ia understood, and in any further opposi tion to Cleveland tbe senior senator from New York state would get but little backing. KANSAS LEGISLATURE. A Begnlar Monkey and Parrot Time Orer Organisation. Topeka, Jan. 11.—The rival houses of the state legislature have been in session in the representatives hall since yester day. At 1 o'clock this morning the rival speakers agreed that no further move should be made during the night, and a blanket being produced, they lay down amicably and slept the rest of the night under the common protection of its folds. The other members were obliged to put up with chairs, the floor and other inconveniences, in lieu of hedß. During the night the Republican members prepared a memorial to the governor, Bigned by 04 membsrs, two more than a majority of the whole num ber of members, setting forth that Aher bad a certificate of election from the state canvassing board, certified by the secretary of state; that they had partic ipated in the Republican organization, and petitioning him to recognize that body as the legal one. Thia waa pre sented to the governor, who was aroused from hia sleep for the purpose, but he declined to say what action he would take. Jamea Wilson, an independent, waß among the signers. Sandwiches and coffee were served to the membera this morning in lieu of a regular breakfaet. Both houses,, were called to order simultaneously*at 10 o'clock by the rival speakers. Two Populists responded to the Republican roll call by mistake, making 66 members apparently present. The Republicans adopted a concurrent resolution for a joint committee of the senate and house to call on the governor and inform him that both houses were in session and ready to hear from him. They then closed the legislative day of Tussday and began Wednesday's ses sion. Meantime the Populieta did nothing except await the return of the committees sent to the governor and senate. While this waa going on, Governor Levelling, the attorney-general and the Populist senators held a canons and de cided not to recognize either bouse, in view of the doubts as to which was legal, if either, bo after the meeting the senate at once adjourned till afternoon. Both houses of representatives were still in session, but doing nothing. A caucus of the senate appointed a com mittee to get legal advice aa to which house was legal. A conference including the governor, both' speakers of the house and commit tees of Republicans, Populists and Democrats, held thia afternoon, decided to adjourn the bouse till tomorrow and appoint a joint committee to formulate a plan of settlement. The five Demo cratic membera informed tbe governor that if it came to a show down they would vote with the Republicans as the legally constituted house. Both speakers then returned to the representatives chamber, explained ar rangement and both houses agreed to an adjournment till 9 a. m. tomorrow. The equabble in the house of repre sentatives haa stopped short all efforts' of Treaßurer-elect Biddle to secure bondsmen, and the legality of the ap propriations has been involved. Treas urer Stone will honor no requisitions upon the etate treasury, and no money will be available until Biddle qualifies. It will thus be impossible to carry on tbe business of the etate bo long ac there ia any question as to the legality of the house organization. Before adjourning thia afternoon tbe Republicana adopted a resolution to call upon tbe Populist eecretary of state to turn ov?r to the Republican house of representatives, aa the constitutionally organized body, all records, deposi tions and evidence in con tested election cases, aa required by law. The eecretary thia evening declined to obey the demand. Tomorrow morn ing, unless in the meantime the joint conference which in considering means to organize the house arrives at Borne conclusion, the Republicans will in stitute mandamus proceedings in the supreme court to compel the secretary of etate to show why he does not obey the law. The joint committee appointed for the PRICE FIVE CENTS. purpose of unraveling the tangle in tbe house adjourned at midnight without having fo/mulated any plan to present in tbe morning. It is probable that the conference win meet in the morning be fore the bouse convenes. It is not likely that any agreement in the matter will be reached. THE NEBRASKA SENATE. A Republican Elected Freaident by Democrat, and Independents. Lincoln, Neb., Jan.' 11.—The senate, after a deadlock lasting: more than a week, organized today, a combina tion of Democrats and Independents having been effected late laat night. The independents tried to make tbe con dition of the compact that Correll, Republican, previously elected president pro tern., should he unseated, but to this a portion of the Democrats would not agree. A resolution in the interest of econ omy, offered by Correll, limiting the number of employee to the stat utory number and providing that they should not draw pay for more days than tbe Penate set. was tabled, on motion of Darmer (Indpt) The motion to lay on the table received tbe polid Democratic vote and the votes of all the independents, except Sen ator Dyaart, who refused to vote. Other motions were tabled by the same vote. Organization was effected by tbe election of Democrats and independents alternately, t-everal motions in the interest of a reduction of expenses being voted down by them.

SENATOR HENNA'S DEATH. It Wag Welcomed aa Relief from Long and Severe SnUermg. Washington, Jan. 11.—Senator John E. Kenna of West Virginia died at 3 o'clock this morning, of heart disease, of which he had been for some yearß an acute sufferer.
