natural places for Royalty to embark at. Bub
this time Royalty, wisely coming as other and
Jess distinguished passengers, sett sail from
the greatest ocean trade and passenger port in
the world, from the busy waters of the Mersey;
and, although Liverpool has in her time ex
tended bounteous welcome to crowned heads,
she shines in other Helds than in slate cere
monies. Halifax, with every natural advantage
over the English city, acquitted herself with a
brilliancy worthy of her history. About 10
tho steamer Edgar Stuart, which had been se
cured for tbe purpose,was boarded by numerous
representatives uf tho press, and at a quarter
past she was unmoored and stcamod
out into tbe harbor. The British
fleet of six ships of tbe Hoe were
moored in the upper end of tho harbor in two
lines, headed by the Bellcropbon on the Halifax
side, and the other beaded by tho Black Friuce
on Iho Dartmouth side. Tho press boat steam
ed down thu harbor and around the Barmattao.
A* tiiu Edgar Btuart steamed around tbo stem,
thu ITloeess, dressed In black, with tho Marquis
by her side, was seen standing on the deck.
About half-past 10 the Harmatlan began to get
steam up for a start, and was soon seen mov

powerful volley, and, afterwards, when thu
BarmalUa was about oddoiUo Market wharf,
tbe (runs from thu Citadel boomed forth Us
grand salute. The occasion was a decidedly In*
spiring one. As tbe cannon thundered forth
tbe echoes from tbe bills reverberated the
sounds la a score of crashing reports. When

approached, the tar* roared forth a hearty and

When the Sarmatlan patted the Bltok Prince,
the baud of the latter played •* Uod Save the
Queen." The Sarmatlan replied by a ScotUth
air from the plpca. After tbo Edgar Stuart bad
teen everythin? possible, and the Sarmatlan had
been moored ioriho nldtt of the fleet immedi
ately off the dock-yard, the prett repreacuta

At 12 oVlock the Admiral and the command*

Between the time of the Aral appearance of the

Further Testimony Showing Where Much
of ft Went—The Case Embellished by a
Street Knock-Down,
Special Dfnateh to TTu Tribune.
Peoria, 111., Nov. 25.—1 n the Cunningham
whiakr case to-day tbc cross-examination of J.
B. Todd «as continued, the greater part of tbe
examination was spent on the details of the
drinking in the Collector’s office. About half
an bour was spent In finding out whether Whit-
Ing’s campaign commenced before or after Mi
nomination, and much more time was spent In
finding out whether roust of those who drank
the Cunningham whisky drank it for campaign
purposes, and whether they received any whisky
for electioneering. Ho was asked whether the
religious brother-in-law, Mr. Klrkbrlde, had
drank more thin once, and if that once
was not at a time when ho was sick, and thought
of going home. Todd replied that he did not
know how sick he was, as hu had drank a good
many tiroes, and that ho did not know hut what
the entire clerical force was sick.
Todd was cool and unmoved all through the
tiresome repetition of question after question,
lie named other parties who drank there. lie
named two prominent Democrats who had
drank of Mr. Cunningham’s whisky,—Messrs,
llumpbrev and 6tnber, of ChUllcollic,— and
would give them other names. He said
that soon after be went into the office
under Whiting that ho (Whiting) waa talked of
for Congress. It continued to be the chief topic
of conversation In tbo office, and with those who
came there until after Ills nomination and fficc*
tloo. He did not pretend to siv that tbe Cun
ningham whisky was oil drank between Whit
ing's nomination and election, but it was drank
during what he considered to be tbe campaign.
It was necessary to have tbo delegates all right.
Ho was asked if the whisky would have been
drank Just tbe same If there had been
no campaign. He said while the whis
ky would undoubtedly bare been drank,
there would not have been such a wholesale
slaughter of it In so short a time If there bad
been no politics mixed with It.
Concerning the Cunningham whisky, it waa
coucldcred by those who drank it to be the best
that came to the offUc.
The defense requested Mr. Ela to allow them
to suspend Mr. Todd's testimony, and put two
bosom friends of Mr. Whltlo&’s on the stand,
Messrs. Van Arsdalc and Gordon, os tbese get>-
tlemou lived In the country and bad to leave
town before dark.
Mr. Vuo Arsdate testified that be hod
been in the Collector's office several times
during the campaign, hut he could not recol
lect that he ever drunk unv whisky ttu**e. On
his cross-examination by Mr. Ela lie said that
he went to the Collector's office to sell some
pigs to Mr. Klrkbrldc. lie remembered going
to the Collector’s oUleo to receive bis pay for
the pigs. He was uncertain us to the year, hut
drank no whisky there, lie could not remem
ber at seeing onv one else there hut
the religious brother-in-law. Hu dually swore
that he could remember nothing sure, only
that ho sold his Digs and got bis pay.
Ho begamu completely bewildered, and could
scarcely utter a word, and those who beard the
testimony and know tbo connection between thu
witness and Wiiltlup, consider It would have
been far better (or thu defense if bis testimony
bad been omitted. 'Ho admitted that he wan a
political friend of Whiting's and thul he was a
drinking-man. Ho electioneered for Whiting,
and had been in the Collector’s office fifteen or
twenty times during two years, and nearly that
many limes during that campaign.
Mr. Gordon was men put ou the stand. He
acknowledged that be was at the Collect
or's oUUx*, as Todd testified, but
went there to sign a bond lor
a Government appointee, but said that he drank
no whiskv there. On ills cross-cxainlnslloa Mr.
Ela made it plain to bo seen that he bad been
Interviewed by the defense. He testified tost
ho could nut say who was In the Collector’s
office at the lime he went thereto sign tbo bund.
Neither could he tell when he was there; said
he was obliged to go there several times before
tbo bond was got In proper condition for his
signature, but be mixed all three of
the times together. ,He hod a treach
erous memory. Ho could remember
nothing. Hu could not even recollect
where any man stood or tat. It could nut even
tell who ntuded him tho bond to sign, or where
abouts In the olllce he stood at any time. Ho
further testified that he could not recollect
anything that was dune or any word that was
son! during auy of the times he was there.
Mr. Els then asked him why be hudeotnc
upon the stand, and swore positively in his
dtrcvt domination that be drank no whisky lu
the Collector's otllec, when he uow ad
mitted that ho did not recollect o thing
that was dooe, or a wonl that was
said, or thing that was seen. The witness re
fused to answer fur some time, aud finally said
that ho knew he drank no whisky, because ho
didn't drink any. lie afterwards admitted that
he had drank whisky with some of the parties
•who occupied the olllce. lie further admitted
that he bad been to Hotchkiss' store drinking
whisky during the last two Uavs. He also ad
mitted that ho had a conversation with Hotch
kiss last week about whether be bod ever drank
auy whisky in the Collector's otllec, but denied
that he had auv conversation with Whllluff on
tbe subject, mid lu less than ten minutes admit
ted that he talked with Whiling on the subject
oulyudav or so ago.
it Is the opinion of those who beard tbe testi
mony of Van Arsdalc aud Gordon that they did
the deleuse more damage man could ever be
remedied. Those amoug Whiting’s former po
litical friends sav that it would have been far
better for him to have paid Cunningham for
the stolen whisky, ami saved the Collector's
olllee the disgrace that has been brought upon
It by this expose.
This evening Todd was accosted ou the street
bv a former Uuvernmeut titorekeeper named
McDermott, under Whitiug, when hot words
ensued and resulted in Todd knocking bis as
sailant down. It ts vaguely hinted that this was
a lixed-up matter to get Todd lulu tbu cala
boose aud lined. He was arrested and released
uu hu own recognizance to appear ut the Pullcv
Court wbeu wauled.
