THE PANAMA MAELSTROM Freycinet the Next Victim to Be Engulfed. The Ex-Minister of War Kept Bad Company. His Intimacy With Dr. Hen Lays Him Open to Suspicion. Progress of the Canal Trial—Charles de Lesseps Severely Censured by the Presiding Judge — Dirty Jabs Farmed Oat. By the Associated Press. Pa bis, Jan. 12.—The Panama develop ments form almost the sole topic of discussion everywhere, and the next move looked for on the part of the au thorities is said to concern De Freycinet. Tbe recalled ex-minister of war was sn intimate friend of Cornelius Herz, and 'frequently drove to Herz'a place at Tresserve, near Aix, to enjoy the hospi tality of Dr. and Mra. Herz. How far this close personal intimacy may have gone is a matter of conjecture, but tbe friendship of De Freycinet is believed to have been put to industrious use by Herz in bis peculiar operations. It is stated that there iano evidence of actual corruption on the part of Freycinet; that nothing more can be ahown against bim than complaisance towards othera who were corrupt. Freycinet ie repre sented to have been terribly shocked by the statements from America regard ing the antecedents of Hers, whom he professed to consider a per son of probity and excellent character. Freycinet's friends cite on this subject the fact tbat previous to the recent exposure, the record of Hers at the cbancelleric of tbe Legion of Honor was not only creditable but brilliant; that Freycinet had no better opportuni ties than the chancelleris for knowing the real history of the adventurer. Freycinet denies having gone with a slouched hat and his collar up about bis ears, to tbe doctor's place, because it is not his way to do thinga in a melo dramatic fashion like a stage brigand. PROGRESS OF THE TRIAL. The court room was thronged agtin today at the resumption of the trial of the Panama defendants. Roseignol, tbe accountant for the Panama company, was examined. Presi dent Perivier remarking that the ac counts must have been recast before being submitted to expert examination. Monchicourt, liquidator for the Panama company, depoeed that Ferdi nand de Lesseps disregarded all warn ings, insisting on proceeding witb tbe Panama enterprise regardless of coat. The expenses, Monchicourt stated, were excessive throughout. %* Monchicourt added that Baron de Reinach and MM. Levy and Cremieux were deputed to pay for certain support to be given the company in its schemes, but he was certain tbat Reinach re tamed the greater part of the funds en trusted with him for the purpose. CHARLES DE LESSEPS SCORCHED. President Perivier turned to Charles de Lesseps and reproached him severely for having permitted this. M. Monchi court stated that De Reinach sucked the blood of the company by obtaining enor mous sums witb which to bribe senators and deputies, and other influential men. ''You bad no confidence in hia mor ality ?"'asked Judge Perivier. "Wo, but he was very clever," replied Monchicourt. Turning to Charles de Leaseps, Judge Perivier inquired, sharply: "And how did you understand that Baron de Reinach used these enormous sums?" "In remunerating financiers." an swered Da Lesseps, "and, without doubt, senators, deputies and ministers. A number of persons, however, offered assistance to Baron de Reinach and M. Cremieux, who were first charged with the distribution of the money." "That is, you gave them a dirty job which you preferred not to do yourself, but provided them with means of do ing?" Charles de Lesseps winced and looked down, but made no reply. FERDINAND DB LESSEPS' BLIND FAITH. Engineer Rousseau next described the method of inspecting the canal on which he based his famous report which was iv part suppressed. He also stated that Ferdinand de Lesseps had blind faith in his own good fortune and supreme in fluence and direction in the manage ment of the work on the canal. A GOOD WORD FOB DE LESSEFS, JR. The first word spoken at the tiial in favor of Charles de Lesseps came from Sir John Stokes, Great Britain's repre sentative on the Suez canal, who testi fied that he regarded Charles de Lesseps as loyal, upright and incapable of a dis honest act. Engineer Dinglere estimated that the cutting of the Panama canal could not have been done for leas than 2,000,000, --000 francs, or in fewer than 15 or 20 years. IMPORTANT PAPERS SEIZED. Search was made this afternoon of the office of M. Popper, formerly partner of Baron de Reinach. It is reported that papers concerning tbe lobbying done by the notorious intermediary, Arton, were seized. THE CABINBT COMPLETED. Vice-Admiral Riunier has accepted the office of minister of marine, formerly occupied by M. Burdeau, thus complet ing the cabinet. CONFIDENCE IN THE OOVEBNMENT. The chamber of deputies showed its confidence in the government today by defeating, 266. to 229, a motion asking the government to fix a day for a new election. Cleveland Goes to Jersey. New York, Jan. 12.—President-elect Cleveland will leave tbe city tomorrow for Lakewood, N. J., where he will re main till a special train conveys him to Washington for tbs inauguration. MADERA COUNTY. Considerable Sentiment In Fresno in Favor of Division. Fresno, Cal., Jan. 12.—A meeting was held here this evening to protest against tbe division of Freano county. Quite a number of prominent citizens of Madera were present, all being in favor of division. They also had many support ers among the local people. The meet ing seemed more like one called to ad vocate division than one called for the purpose of protesting against it. Thomas E. Hughes, Alex. Gordon, W. Phillips of this city, and Supervisor J, Myer of Madera spoke in favor of divi sion. W. D. Grady, -T. R. Reilly, W. Ferguson and others opposed division. W. D. Grady was chairman and ap pointed a committee of management, consisting of W. H. McKeDtie, J. R. White and Fulton G. Berry, to oppose the bill and take all legitimate steps to secure its defeat. The Teat Oath Most Go. Boise, Ida., Jan. 12 —The committee on privileges and election of the house today reported favorably a bill for the repeal of the Norman test oath act. The purpose of the bill is to remove the retroactive feature of the law, whicb prohibits anyone from voting who, since January, 1888, belonged to a church whioh teaches or practices polygamy. CARNOT IN THE TOILS. A FRKBH ATTACK ON THR PRESI DENT OF FRAN 08. It Will Be Openly Charged That He Re eelved Some of the Panama Ca nal Boodle When la the Cabinet. New York, Jan. 12.—The Paris corre spondent of the Tribune says: You a 111 likely hear something during the next few days of a fresh attack on the presi dent of the French republic. It has been told already that an attempt would be made to connect him with M. Bai hut. When the suggestion was first offered, tbe decent public scouted it as preposterous. But today the note is different. The attack comes from an other quarter. The Radicals have fast ened on it and seem disposed to make it their own. According to Charles de Lesseps, whose testimony is evidently believed by the prosecution to be true, in 1886 Baihut, then minister of public works, asked him for a million francs as the price of his support of the bill for the Panama lottery loan. De Lesseps made no mention of Carnot's name, but in 1886 De Freycinet was prime minis ter, M. Baihut minister of public works, and Carnot minister of finance, and tbe bill was brought in by M. Baihut, backed by M. Sarrien, minister -of tbe interior, and M. Carnot, the minister of finance. There fore, say the authors, the presumption is that the money paid by De Lesseps to M. Baihut was divided by him with M. Sarrien and M. Carnot, either for their own benefit or the secret funds of their respective departments. Never, perhaps, did a political intrigue or per sonal attack on a great officer of state or the chief magistrate of a great republic rest on so slight foundation. It is so slight tbat in ordinary times it would not support tbe most casual calumny; but these are not ordinary times, and it is believed by some men that something can be made out of the Baihut inci dent. BTBTKNSONIN THB SOUTH. Adlai and His Partner Guests of Honor at Nashville. Nashville, Term., Jan. 12.—Hon. Adlai Stevenson and Mr. Ewing, his law partner, reached Nashville this morning, accompanied by a committee of Nashville gentlemen representing the Ladies' Hermitage association, who bad gone to St. Louis to meet them. They were met at the depot by Col. D. B. Cooper and went immediately to his home, where they spent tbe day meet ing a number of prominent citizens at luncheon. Tonight General Stevenson and Mr. Ewing are the guests of the Ladies' Hermitage association, and the guests of honor at the annual Jackson ball and reception feiven under the patronage of tbe association. A DARK HOBSB MAY WIN. Tha Washington Senatorial Baee Is Very Complicated. Olympia, Wash., Jan. 12.—0. W. Griggs of Tacoma tonight received tbe can v nomination of the Democrats for United States senator. Tbe Democrats practically control tbe situation and as sert they will dictate the election. The Allen|and Turner forces are hard at work, though neither has enough votes to eleit. Should tbe Allen and Turner men refuse to caucus and the contest drag through tbe session, Governor Mc- Graw would appoint, and Allen would be tbe man. Some believe tbe deadlock will be broken by a dark horse in the person of W. H. Calkins of Tacoma. A NEBRASKA SENSATION. Governor Boyd May Appoint Senator Paddock's Successor. Omaha, Neb., Jan. 12.—A sensational story comes from Lincoln at a late hour tonight. It is to the effect that the constitutional time for the elec tion of a senator by the legis lature expires next Thursday, and unless the deadlock is broken before that time Governor Boyd, who still holds over, will be enabled to ap point a successor to Senator Paddock. Governor Croonse cannot be inaugur ated until the deadlock is broken and the legislature meets in joint session. After Hawley's Toga. Hartford, Conn., Jan. 12. —In the Democratic nun us today, ex-Congress man Carloß French was nominated for United States senator. A joint sesEion will be held Tuesday next. Successful men secure fine tailoring with pleasing fit from H. A. Gets, 112 West Third street. COMPLETELY ICE-LOCKED. Arctic Weather Along the Atlantic Coast. Severest Winter Experienced in Many Years. Mountains of lee Block Navigation in New York Harbor. The Sea rmii at Nantucket Bra Mile* Oat—Tha Dataware and Ohio Froaen Over—Extreme Cold In tha Dominion. Br the Associated Press. Naw York, Jan. 12.—1t ia many years since tbe harbor and rivers of this city wsrs so blockaded by ice as at present, and instead of improving, the situation is steadily growing worse. So dense and compact is the mountain of ice wedged in tbe narrows by the ebb tide tbat no boats dared to force a passage there to day. The ferry boats run only on the go-as yiu please plan. The Long Island and New Jersey patrons of tbe ferries are de layed and harrassed in innumerable ways, and scores of them will doubtless be forced to spend the night in tbe city. Hundreds of tons of freight is block aded on the wharves and lighters. It will be out of tbe question to retain tbe extreme congestion until the advent of milder weather. Blinding snow, driven by a high wind during the day and night, aggravated tbe discomfort and danger by making it impossible for pilots to see far enough ahead to seek out tbe best channels. Six boats are fast in the ice in the upper harbor. The steamship Hudson, which arrived from New Orleans this morning, reports having had a hard time getting up the bay through the ice. The flow of ice in the sound is unprecedented. A number of tugs, schooners and barges, south and east, are both ice and weather bound. The British schooner Cricket, which arrived from St. Johns, N. 8., December 30th, was crushed in the ice in North river today. The captain and crew had only enough time to save a few personal effects before she went down. Reports from quarantine state tbat the steam&bip Massachusetts, from London, iB anchor chains and being forced sloww down the bay by tbe huge cakes of ice which hem her in on all sides. Two oil tanks and two coal barges, torn from their anchorage at Tompkinsville, are also being carried down the lower bay by ice. Division Superintendent Hempstead of the New York Central railroad said today that the schedules of trains are more demoralized today than at any time since the blizzard. All western trains are four to six hours late. Several tugs with heavy coal tows are fast in the ice In the npper bay. Pilots are unable to get their boats away from the shore of Staten island. During the blinding snow storm today a number of i vessels were driven ashore along the Jersey coast. It is estimated that $50,000,000 worth of freight, much of it perishable, is lying on the piers, unable to be moved on ac count ot the ice blockade. Camdkn, N. J., Jan. 12.—The Dela ware river is frozen over solid from Oooper's Point to this city. A number of freight boats are fast in the ice. Tbere are 150 loads of freight cars for Philadelphia stalled at this place, being unable to get across the river. New Bkdfobd, Mass., Jan. 12. —Ice in the harbor is now five inches thick and crews from several imprisoned vessels walked on the ice to tbe Fairhaven shore. Nantucket, Mass., Jan. 12. — Nan J tucket has been shut off from the out side world by the ice blockade the past two days. The cold snap has closed up both the harbor and bay. The ice ex tends out six miles beyond the break water. With present indications it is impossible to state when communication will be opened. Ottawa; Ont., Jan. 12. —The cold weather in this section is unabated in intensity. At Ottawa this morning tbe thermometer registered 39 below; at Pembroke, 40 below; at Ironside, 32 he low; at Maniwaki, 34 below; at Kazu bsgua, 35 below; and at North Wake field, 34 below. Niagara Falls presents a beautiful sight. A complete ice bridge covers what is known as tbe Big Kettle, extend ing from about 100 feet below the sus pension bridge to within 50 feet of the foot of tbe falls. This is tbe first time in 100 years that this has happened. Louisyillb, Ky., Jan. 12—Tbe river is frozen solidly from Jeffersonville bri Ige to Twelve Mile island, and men and boys wefe walking across all day. Below heavy gorges have formed at Al ton, Wolf Creek, Leavenworth, Brnn donburg and Salt river. Smaller gorges have also formed at intermediate points. The rapid falling of the river in the harbor last night caused the boats to be left aground. Cincinnati, Jan. 12.—The ice gorge in the river is causing serious apprehen sions of a coal famine. The supply is tbe shortest the city has known in 20 years. Coal is $6 to $6.50 a ton, while directly across the river, at Covington and Newport, it is only $4. Powdorly Avow* Socialism. Scrantom, Pa., Jan. 12 —General Master Workman Powderly in an ad dress to union carpenters, said: "lam a Socialist and I say it without blush ing. If the avowal brings condemna tion, lam willing to take it. I am one ol 65,000,000 Socialists in this country. I believe railroads are public highways and should be nationalised and that the telegraph system should be owned and operated by tbe government." Chil.ls Whips Soldier Walker. San Fbancisco, Jan. 12.—Frank Obilds, the colored pugilist of Los An geles, and Soldier Walker of San Fran cisco fought a hurricane battle at the Palo Aito club tonight. Childs won in three rounds, knocking tbe white man senseless. PRICE FIVE CENTS. HOMESTEAD POISONERS. The Trial of Dempsev. DarlAi.m aa* Beatij- Begun. Pittsburg, Jan. 12. — The trial of Hngh Dempsey, district master work -1 man of the Knights of Labor; J. N. Davidson and Robert Beatty, charged with poisoning non-union workmen in the Homeßtead steel mills, began here today in a crowded conrt room. Beatty is accused of having arranged aith Da vidson and other cooks at the mill to administer poison, which, it is alleged, Dempsey furnished. The defense en deavored at the start, unsuccessfully, to secure a postponement. The jury was then impaneled, then tbe package con taining the result of tbe analytical tests on the stomachs of tbe men who died were brought in, aud the attOrney for the prosecution made bis opening' ad dress, in which be told of tbe confession of cook Gallagher, which led to tbe ar rest of the accused. He eaid Davidson and Gallagher would tell their stories on the stand, and be corroborated by other witnesses. The court took a recess. In the afternoon Dr. Cooper testified that he attended several men who showed every symptom of arsenical pois oning. The Dispatch will say in the morning it is positively known that arsenical poison was found in tbe etomacbs ot the men by the analytical chemists and this will be brought out tomorrow. BLAINEJA.GAIN RELAPSES PHYSICIANS HASTILY SUMMONED LAST JVKMSC, Great Excitement for • While at th* Blame Mansion, bat the Danger Tided Over—The Pa tient Sinking. Washington, Jan. 12.—Blame was re ported much improyed this morning. DOCTOBS t|UICKLY SUMMONSES. Early this evening messengers were hastily dispatched for both Drs. John ston and Hyatt. Young Mr. Blame was also quickly summoned. This, taken in connection with the evidences of un usual commotion about the family resi dence, led the newspaper men to believe tbat Blame had suffered a serious re lapse. After 20 minutes' consultation, Dr. Johnston left tbe bouee. He stated that nothing of a positively serious na ture had occurred and that Blame's con dition was practically unchanged. He stated that whenever any symptom de veloped that might be construed by the attendant as unfavorable, the physicians were immediately notified, but this did not indicate a change for the worse. Dr. Hyatt said the trouble was the difficulty the invalid expeiieneed in breathing. The attendant supposed hie labored respiration wns caused by an attack of heart failure, but htß heart was found not to be affected. Medicine was administered and the unfavorable symp toms passed away. THB PATIENT,VERY WEAK. Blame is weaker tonight than since his relapse two nights ago. His phy sicians, Drs. Johnston and Hvatt, called at 9:30 o'clock and remained in the sick room for 46 minutes, durirg which time they made a thorough examination of the patient and gave him come addi tional medicines. Tha guarded utter ances of the doctors are especially sig nificant, more from what they nailed to say than from what they actually said. Dr. Hyatt is still at the hotue and it looks as if one or both doctors will re main nil night. At 1 a. m. all ie quiet about tbe Blame mansion, one of tbe doctors still being there. At 4 o'clock there is no apparent change in the condition of affairs at the Blame mansion. MO Ii TANA SENATOBSBIP. Democrats Beginning to OniteiAiitrate on a Single Candidate. Helena, Mont., Jan. 12.—The vote for United States senator t morrow wiM robably show a decided change' The supporters of W. A. Clark called a caucus of Democratic members tonight at the Hotel Helena. T« enty-six leg islators, all Democrats but /.eecher, Populiet, responded, the Dixon men alone staying out. Hauser'H name was withdrawn and his friends urged to sup port Clark. A ballot was then taken and Clark got all of the Ui votes. He will get the name iv joint session to morrow. The Clark men are now holding a big celebration at their headquarters, as they seem to think victory assnrtd. All they have to do ie to whip into live the Dixon men,but those wrio know Marcus Daly's hatred of Clerk think lh;a is no easy matter. Sanders, Republican, cf ill holds his 33, and may yet get two Populists. If he shall, this would leiive Bteclier, Pop ulist, with the deciding vote, aud today he jumped into the Clark ranks. Governor Rickards has appointed R. O. Hickman, ex-state treasurer, to be state land commissioner, vies Granville Stuart. FBINCB GEORGE COMING. England's Royal Representative at the Columbian Fair. London, Jan. 12.—1t iB given out here tonight, on reliable authority, that Prince George of Wales is seriously contemplating a trip to America dur ing the coming spring, to participate in the naval review iv New York harbor. The idea is favorably regarded by the queen, the prince of Wales end the heads of the admiralty. If Prince George goes he we will be escorted across the At lantic by Beveral meu-of-war, and probably a large squadron of bat tle ships and cruisers will be sent over in advance to receive him. The prince also contemplates a trip to the Chicago exposition, after the festiv ities in New York are over, but nothing yet has been definitely settled. Household Goads In great variety at the W. C.
