Quay; exSiate Treasurer Benjamin J. Haywood, end Charles H. McKee, of Pittsburgh, law partner of Lieut.-Gov. Lyon. They are accused of conspiracy with John 8. Hopkina, formerly caahler of the People's Bank, to use public moneys for their own use. Hopkins killed himself tat March, shortly before the hank's failure. Senator Quay and bis son came up from Atlantic City as soon as they beard of their Intended arrest. They promptly ^rendered themselves, and Magistrate Jermon held them In $5,000 ball each for a hearing at noon next Thursday. Da vld H. Lane, the Republican leader, became their bondsman, and title afternoon they returned to the seashoreByadvlce of their attorney they declined to discuss the case. They will come back to the city on Wednesday, so as to be In full time for the hearing. Mr. Haywood Is in Montana and Mr. McKee Is In New York. TJnlted States Senator Penrose was with his colleague this afternoon, and spoke freely after the later** departure for Atlantic City. "I presume Senator Quay will not make any statement at this Juncture,"' said he, "regarding this last daetardly attack of his malevolent enemies, though he doubtless will In the proper time. There le, however, no reason why | 7. as his colleague and personal friend, ehould be silent. "Attempted assassination of character has been almost the sole weapon of attack employed by Senator Quay's opponents for several years, and the methods pursued have been augmented In vlchusnes* and vlndictlveness as their futility has been demonstrated. As the last despairing effort of unscrupulous conspirators, comes thls brutai move of the "opposition, whfch*"they""Sad upon their programme for weeks, with the desperate hope that It might In some way aid In the election of a Democratic legislature. The people of Pennsylvania are, above all things elsfc, fair and just, and they can be trusted to aee through the sinister motives animating the small coterie of disgruntled, defeated politicians who are responsible for this sensational rcaort to the courts. In due time there will be a. complete exposition of this latest act In the drama of character assassination, now so conspicuous a feature In Pennsylvania politics." The warrants were made out on Saturday by District Attorney Graham, and on the affidavit of Charles F. Myers, of the district attorney's office. Myers Is a detective, and acted on Information furnished by Thomas W. Barlow, re cover 01 mc reopie s ssnii. The affidavit, on which the warrants were iuued, Is as follows: Tli? Affidavit. "State of Pennsylvania* City and County of Philadelphia, S. S.: "Charles F. Myers, being sworn according to law, doth depose and cay that Matthew Stanley Quay, Benjamin J. Haywood, Richard R. Quay and Charles JI. McKee and other persons to this deponent unknown, did unlawfully combine, confederate, conspire and agree to and with eaoh other and the said persons unknown to use the publlo moneys of the oommonwealth of Pennsylvania for their own use, and also did combine, confederate, conspire and agree to and with each other and divers oersons to thla deponent unknown and to and with John 8.

District Attorney Graham said that from evidence In the shape of letters and piper* furnished to hlra he believed it bit duty to begin proceedings. He added: "I propose to have a hearing as quickly ns possible, and to produce at that bearlns all tho fant? n?rMmrv its bind. In* over. Some of the facta will be reserved until the time of the trial." Mr. Graham expressed a Arm determination to proceed vigorously. James McManea, a former president of the defunct People's Bank, aaltf he ha<l known the warrants were to be Issued, although he had nothing to do with the action. He asserted Ignorance any transactions Justifying It. Mr. McManea aald: "Seriator Quay and his son llichard both had their personal notf/i discounted at the bank, the last of which matured after the bank had closed Us doors These notes were nil promptly paid when due, and neither Mr. Quty nor his son Is Indebted to the bank one dollar that I know of.

A CHEAP TRICK That Can Enillj In OMokauUd-Arrut fMutor Qnf Md Otto?ra Narvly a RMklm Ion u> rndm CamptlffB Tliandcr. PHILADELPHIA, Pa.,OcL S.-Offlclll I confirmation vu gives this afternoon to the rumors which have been In circulation since la?t nlfht, that warrant! have been lamed for the arrest of United States Senator Quay and others I prominent in state politics, charging , misuse of state funds. District Attorney J | Graham this afternoon stated that warrants had been issued, charging United States Senator Quay, bis son, Richard R. Quay, ex-state treasurer, B. F. J. Haywood and Charles R. McKee, with conspiracy with the late John S. Hopkins, formerly cashier of the People's bank, to make use of the state fijnds In stock speculation. The affidavit upon which the warrants were sworn out waa made by Detective Myers, who Is an attache of the district attorney's office. Hopkins, who Is named in tho affidavit, committed suicide in March last, and an examination of the bank's condition showed that the bank's assets were impaired. The bank at once went into liquidation and President James McManes obligated himself personally to protect all creditors. At that time the deposits of state funds amounted to $505,000, which amount has since been yum iuiv uiu mkftiu ufc?Mui/ -/ ?... McManes. Thomas A. Barlow waa. appointed receiver of the bank when it closed its doors. Mr. Barlow Is assistant district attorney, but district attorney Graham to-day stated that the prosecution had originated In his ofllce and that Mr. Barlow livhls capacity as receiver, had not In aty way been instrumental In bringing the charges. The warrants were to-day placed in the hands of the Plnkerton Uetectlye^gency for service. 8enator Quay arrived In the city from Washington to-day. When seen at his hotel he Baid that he^came here to permit the service of any summons and to answer any charges made against him. He refused to discuss the matter. Senator Quay and his son Richard,appeared before magistrate Jermon thh afternoon, ond entered ball in the sum of $5,000 each for a hearing Thursday. David* H. Lane,a prominent politician, became security for both men. PITTSBURGH, Pa., Oct 8.?Mr. Rich ara yuay is saiu \u uc in auuuuu vu*. Ex-State Treasurer Haywood is in Minnesota, and Attorney Charles McKee is In New Tork City on business, hence none of those mentioned in tiie case from the western end of the state, could be seen. Lieutenant Governor Lyon, who Is Mr. McKee's law partner, says the Incentive for the issuing of tha warrant was to produce campaign thunder, but he thought It a decidedly reckless pleco of business, inasmuch as there was not the slightest shadow of wrong doing on the part of the defendants, and it would react to such an extent upon the prosecutors that more harm ttian good would-be done their cause. He explained that Richard Quay had borrowed money from the People's bank, of Philadelphia, to build the New Castle street railway, and he presumed Senator Quay was brought into the matter by his having signed His son's notes. Lieutenant Governor Lyons said the money had all been paid back to the bank, and the state had lost nothing. Tha Arm r?f T.von Xr MrTfpp neted an attorneys for the New Castle street railway, but had no connection whatever with the financial end of It and could not understand why his firm had been brought Into the matter.

Candidate Blair ? ? led Into a trap by bis own party, and wo* compelled to engage In a Joint ditcuidon at thti place with Captain Dorener. The latter had be^h billed here (or two weeks, and for eome reuon, Blair1* friend* announoed (hat their candidate would speak at the u? hour. ,1 uKgERin Kji It I* no secret that they were surprised to And both men present. In addition to the congressional aspirants, Messrs. | Kldd and Morrl*, senatorial candidates, were pitted against each other. Mr. Blair opened the discussion with a speech one hour and ten minutes In length. It oonsisted of apologies and denials for his party's past, and finally a virtual acknowledgment that It at present represented no real living issue. Captain Dovener followed In an hour and thirty minute talk, during which fie made plain the fact that he belonged to a party which had Issues, and which represented progressive Ideas. He was frequently and loudly cheerett toy his audience, and so completely worsted his antagonist that the latter'* thirtyminute reply was so weak and his argument so scattering that he was really an object of pity. His own party friends acknowledge a complete triumph for Dovener, and openly admit that they made a fatal error by permitting Blair to attack a foeman with whom he was unable to cope. Seeing their standard-bearer so badly beaten, and hoping yet to get soma little glory out of the affair, they proposed a half hour's talk each by Messrs. Kidd and Morris. Kidd Is noted for noise, but the effect of his oratory was soon destroyed by the calm statement of facts made by Mr. Morris. B^e made many friends because tils simple advocacy of the cause of the plain people made them feel that his official conduct would be In their favfir. The Republicans are naturally Jubilant, and every one of them Is more than pleased with the day's meeting. It will make Republican votes In Gilmer, and leave the party harmonious and in the best of lighting trim. DOTBHEK IHBRAXTOY. Th? Dawgtat7 Captain Ho^ds a Roaatng Meeting at Sntton.

A more enthusiastic and appreciative audience was never assembled in the court house. The meeting closed with three rousing cheers for the gallant captain, in which it seemed that every one In the court room tried to drown out the voices of the others, after whlcto the party hand-shakes of the throng almost lifted the captain off the floor.
