Wasuinuton, D. C. May 12.?Hearing
thut a concerted effort was to be made to
teat the Democracy of tills administration,
I weighed anchor and dropped down the
jtrfarn an far as this. 1 reached the
National Hotel in time to see the troops
[all in, and it was lay blessed privilege to
itand on the curb and soe the procession
jo by. You may be sure It was a striking
performance. It was told in confidence
I hat three photographers asked leave to
take the cohorts on the fly. This was sup
poeuu iu ue ? mere uuviuu m gut a new
Napoleon from Charley Wolla. Colonel
Smith, of Mawn, said it hurt liis feelings
to hear that they had been mistaken for
the delegation of Pom as now sojourning
bore. The passage of the Avenuo was
made with heavy, confident tread, an allpervading
air of assurance taking the place
ot any brass music. It is but the truth of
history to say that they straggled back
jgniu ''down-in-the-uiouth."
I made it convenient to be at the National
to see them drop in, the dashing
body now broken into small war-worn
iq tiads. It had been a bold assault, a handto-hand
encounter in which the President
nras clubbed with the butt-end of our
tiomely but exprt'soi.vtj.ff rat Virginia vernacular.
It wiw plain that tlicy bad met
the President aniWw was not thoirs.
of the firstwiuail of stragglers I asked:

"Oil, I reckon there's lots of fun In this
[or you all. 1 don't think Cleveland
inons there is such a thing as a Demo:ratie
party. Talk about getting Democrats
in, and he raises objections about
putting Republicans out. We thou (lit he

"I'erhaps the President wants time to
look the field over and get a minted
ivitli his party," I suggested in the intersi
nf harmony.
"Which in his party'.'"' chimed in an>ther
dirgustcd in ?u. "I think lie is payng
more attention to George William t.urlis'dudes
than to Democrats."
"Maybe he wouldn't have bion there if
it hadu't been for the George William
Curtis renegudts," 1 ventured, still m the
interest of peace.
"Well, sir," said a big chief with an explosive
that might, have been heard at the
White House, "I'd rather have kept on
beii g beaten than hare a Democrat In the
White House with Republican 'band-cufts
jn him."
Several of the company assented to this,
ind the others insisted that a llimocrat
bus better at any price.

London, May 13,?A SL Petersburg dispatch
says Gen. KomarotTs latest dispatches
regarding the collision between
me Hussions ami Aignans near renjuen,
reiterates with fuller details his earlier accounts
of the affair. He says the Afghans
sent a taunting message to the Russians,
declaring that "they would thrash the
Russians as tlify had thrashed the English."
The Afghans, Gen. KomarolT
again insists, fired the first shots and so
were responsible for bringing ou the engagement.
General KomarolT says be
learned from prisoners who wore taptared
in the battle the Afghan leaders
had oidered the Sariks to lurnish a
contingent of 1,UOO men to the Afghan
army. The time which had been allowed
the tiariks to determine whether they
would comply with this expired on the
very day the battle occurred, and an
answer from tbein was expected by the
Afghans on that day. The effect produced
by the Russian success on the minds of
the neighboring people was so great that

A few days after the battle, namely on

inander at Paujdeh, he had no further
animosity a^aiuat the Afghans.

thousand men hod assembled in the
square to make a demonstration against

the dutieg on spirits and beer. The
or wd was very unruly, a large portion of
it consisting of an olement on a search for
sport. The police found themselves
unable to maintain order, andthepressure
on the speakers and resolution readers
compelled them to mount the pedestal of
of the Nelson monument,, when from this
eminence the specchti were resumed.
They were rendered inaudible to the
audience addressed by the uproar among
theroystera. The police intervened to secure
silence lor the orators and then a
great struggle ensued between the mob

the examination of a few important
witnesses, the Attorney General
asked that the statements made by
Burton to .Constable Jarvla, at the time of
bla arrest bo admitted aa evidence. To
the admirslon ol tbcae statements Burton's
counsel strenuously objected, but
the court decided that they were admlaalble.
Constable Jarvla waa then called to
the atand and briefly went over the statements
made to him by Burton when he
took the latter Into enatody. Witness testified
that on Tuesday, February H, he went
to No. DO Turners Road, where Burton had
removed from bla l'rescott street lodgings,
and had a conversation with him.
Witness asked him if he waa the man who
, removed a brown trunk from Prescott
street, and Burton answered as follows:
"Yea, I bought it for eight shillings from
' a stranger whom I met in the street and
; took It home. I don't know thejnan and
have never seen him since. I came from
' America on litirisimas ova oy tun urejon,
1 and stopped *t Liverpool one night. I
came to London next day, which was
r Christinas day. I have been in England
i before."
Officer Jarvis continuing untitled that
i Uarton told him that he waa a cabinet
maker by trade. Barton baa no beslta'
tion in producing tbe brown trunk. "I
then placed bin upder arreet," uid the
wuueaii, auu iiuuruivu mm llim nu Mas

Cunningham in tho recent dynamite exploalon."
At the conclusion ot Jarvia' .
testimony ovidenco was iutroduced to
show that Cunningham took a room at 30

lits name as Burton.

There waa no other obwb from there to- ["

about the Cumberland region. A special
from Baltimore last evening stated that
the operators had bad an informal interchange
of opinions, but taken no action 1

expressed by the presidents, Lowcver, it is tU|

that the presidents will send a committee J*
