the stand to-day, confessed that, at the time of
the fire, she was pregnant by iluriey. Sundry
letters between them, written after the tragedy,

that Hurley clubbed or chloroformed his wife

New York, Jan. 80.—Tho Tima says: Jay
Gould walked Into the lobby ot the Windsor to
night about 0 o’clock, and, as be passed through
Uic throng, but five persona recognized him.
Among the crowd about blm were man like
Mr. Beldea, bis late partner, Samuel
W. Boocock, James Keene’s principal broker,
Frank Work, Charles Osborne, a few years ago
bis confidential agent and broker, D. I*. Mor
gan, and others not leas active la “the street”
at this time, but none of them seemed to know
him. A few years ago, bad ho entered
that vestibule uuder such circumstances,
half tho crowd would have rushed to
shake hands and hare the first word with
him. Ills appearance to-night was somewhat of
a surprise, for ho has not lately visited the
Windsor frequently. The opinion was express
ed that It was done as a piece of tactical side
show, to let “ tho street ” sec he was still alive.
The same construction was pul upon the after
noon movement lu tho slock market,
oo his “Jong” holdings ami “abort’’contracts
goaded blm Into desperation, and led him to
make a savage “bear” attack, which bad the
effect of shaking prices down a few points, and
was followed • by a quick recovery.
The whole movement was over in
half on hour, and, If it was
bis work, It was planned well, for U was beeim
at t moment when the market was quiet but
strong, and tho “bulls” off guard. The mar
ket opened buoyantly, and nothing unusual oc
curred until about 1:10, when suddenly, as by
aconccrteU movement, a simultaneous “bear”
raid was made by tho brokers all over the floor.
Tho stocks principally attacked were Lake
Shore, Northwestern, ond 8U I’aul. These were
offered freely, and,
dropped at tho rale of balf a point at a time,
and In one or two Instances at the rate of ono
point, until Lake Shore bad fallen points,
Northwest Bt. Paul 4. Canada Southern 3,
Michigan Central B><, Hannibal & St. Joseph
2X, and Western Union 4%. These were the
principal sufferers, but tho entire list was de
pressed more or less. For awhile It
such was the rash of demoralized weak holders
to realize. It wa« fully half an hour before
those not In the movement began to re
cover from their scare, and then
slocks rebounded almost as quickly os
they tumbled. Tho excitement Inside
the Exchange was more than equaled outside.
Evcrv gold ami slock Instrument was surround
ed by a pushing rriob, esger to learn the latest
nows. Lawyers deserted Uielr ofllccs, and met-,
chants their stores. It seemed as though the
entire down-town community was engaged In
the stock business.
until the raid was over and Uio reaction set in.
(July a few Wall-street men give Gould tho
credit ot the break, and even those, believe It
was purely “wash” so faros Gould’s share In
It was concerned, and Uiat whatever actual
transactions wore made during that brief flurry
were not on his account. 8o far as
may be Judged from outward appcoranccs,
It was n Gould “woshlng" raid, for a reporter
who was on tho Exchange at the lltno saw what
appeared to be squads of five or six brokers en
ter the room tn a body, act apparently In con
cert, though scattering themselves oil over tho
room, und subside by a similar concert of move
ment. Dy far the roost intelligent to-day of
men on the street believe that tho temporary
break was but a natural result of the strong nn '
high market.
with leading broken, one of them said people
had rather
iu fixiujt them at $100,003 a week on an nrerage,
unci that, if he U actually carrying 125,000 shares
of stock, It costs easily $500,000 a week, against s
market whose average rise Is 0 points a week.
It is asserted that dividends oo Union Psclllc
have nut beau actually paid for some time past,
although Mr. Qould claims it is paying a dlvl
dend of 2 per ccut per quarter. It U claimed
that the dividend has been paid only
limits, among outsiders for appearances’ sake
alone, and (hat tlio manipulators of the inside
ring have agreed to pass or omit collection of
(heir dividends. A loading man oo the street
said this was a fset not generally known or sug
ccitcd. but ho knew that the UnjQiirtdfis man
agers could not show how or when a dividend
had been paid. Ho also elated that quite re
cently Gould parted with some Union Psclllc

Peonu, II)., Jan. 30.—The Cunningham wills
ky ease acema to be drawing to a close. Ihe
testimony of one of the defendant 1 * witnesses
to-day baa caused a good deal of excitement,
and made such a destructive and unexpected re
bound Into Uio defendant's ram p Uiat t hey cunuot
get over it. They have been calling witnesses
lor a while to prove that the whUUy was not
used In the Whiting campaign. They have care
fully selected a few respectables who knew
almost nothing of the running of the campaign,
nnd put them on the stand to prove that they
did not have any knowledge of whisky
being used on Whiting's side In
the campaign. To-day the defendants put on
Capt. Adam Staber, of Chllllcothe, iu this coun
ty, to prove that bo did not drink whisky In the
Collector's office when Todd aald he did.
Cant. Staber sworo that be did
not remember drinking there. Mr. Kla
took him In croaa-examteatlon, and a change
come over the spirit of his dream. Capt.
Staber Is an old Democratic politician. He has
been one of the boys up to a few months ago.
Thuu ho Joined the Red Ribbon Club,
and baa been ever since a devoted
friend of the cause. Ho said that
he ran the Whiling campaign In Klckapoo and
vicinity, where he was sent to influence the
Democratic German vole for Whiting. Whil
ing made a bargain with him that be
was to Influence the Democratic vote.
He did this work principally with
whisky; that Whiting most have known It.
When ho employed him (Staber) Whiting paid
him for doing It. He sent him acme of the
money during the campaign, and paid him the
rest after election. They made the settlement
in the Collector's office, and alter be
and Whiting fettled, Knowles, the
present Collector, went out with biro and got
the money. £ls asked him U be didn't drink a
good deal of whisky In those days. Ho told bo
did drink about as many times as be was asked.
He was asked if ho didn't drink iu
Um Collector'* office at the time
of settlement. Ho said lie hm prcl ly sure he
didn’t, because, when ho started from home
that day, he determined to keep Ids head clear
until after he had settled with Whiting. In an
swer to a question by the defense, lie said ho
is now a member of the lied-Hibbon
Club, and could not be got Into such a scrape
again. When asked what he meant by that, lie
said: “Maj. Whiling couldn’t hire me with
f 1,000 to corrupt men with whisky again.”
This attempt by Mr, Whiting to vindicate bis
past political character haa resulted so dis
astrously that the Ring are very sick, and it is
not likely they will earrv It on much farther.

New York, Jan. 81.—George Blosson and ’
Maurice Dalv played this evening Uic most ex- |
citing game ol the Brunswick A Ilalke chain- |
pionshlp tournament in the presence of a large
assemblage of ladles and gentlemen. It
resulted in a sorry defeat for the previously-
Invincible Chicagoan, Uio changing hands
of a very largo amount ot wagered money, and
tho general upselling of the calculations of the
sporting fraternity In respect to winning combi
nations. As a tournament contest, the game
has not been equaled in Interest by any
play here lu many years. As far as
tho tournament la concerned, Daly's well
earned victory leaves Schaefer at present
with Uic best chanco for the championship em
blem and first prize, and assures Daly himself a
prize. As Schaefer has still to meet Bextuu and
Blosson, however, It Is posriblu there will be
three lies between Uicse brilliant experts,
the “playing off” of which will insure fine
exhibitions. In the afternoon game Schaefer
defeated Gallagher, adding four victories to
bis banner. The game opened slowly, nothing
being done until the fifth inning, when Daly
gave up playing “safety,” and counted fid
points, retiring on a freeze. Blosaon, be
yond running 19, showing no signs
of bis ability to handle the cuo
up to the twelfth Inning, inclusive, had scored
bv£ blanks and thirty-two points. Daly now
got the balls on the rail, and coaxed them
along skillfully. They clicked 100, and,
traveling down tho left rail, turned
the corner, crossed the bottom rail,
and then, In the best of humor, went slowly
along Ute right rati toward tho top of the table,
caroming so softly that the sound could scarcely
be heard. Two hundred were counted amid a
tumult of applause. Then, at 2SO, the round ot *
table waa completed, uml they started afresh
on the same journey, making 800 just os
they act out. Slossou meanwhile wiped his
bands with bis handkerchief, and remarked to
the referee, “This Is a nice game for me I"
The constant glare of the gas hurt Daly’s eyes
after u time, and ho began to grow so dizzy he
could hardly see, and sat down to recover,
lie arose shortly afterward, and continued his
piny. But pow the Ivories began to show a dis
position to scatter, and, after making 870, the
largest and most brilllaht run of bis life, Daly’s
arm failed blm, and, missing a “kiss carom,”
the player retired amid an ovation. Blosson
made but 0 on a good “leave,” to which bis
tired opponent responded with two caroms.
Blcisson changed bis cue later, r.nd the change
proved beneficial to bla Interests, for ho
gathered tho bilta on the rail In balf
a dozen shota, and settled down to one
of hla long “nurse’’runs on which he always
relics to crush the effect ot any lend his adver
sary may gain. With each shot the player re
gained his >( nerve,” and the winning of the
game seemed only a question of time, an
to how long the Chicago boy’s band
could keep up tho “clock-work” carom
ing without losing Its skill In
weariness. On tho 271st shut, however, the
balls froze, and Slossou slipped on the “string”
shot. The score stood Hto-soa, Hid; Daly, 477.
Thu latter played 12, to which Slosson
responded with 24, th'i lutcrcst of the
spectators having lu tho meantime raised to
high pitch. Finally Daly had only 89 to 00 to
defeat bla Western adversary, and he played
“safe” shots with great judgment to guard his
score, while Blosson began to grow sbnky again.
Taking advantage of these opportunities, Duly
gathered dm balls in his twenty-second Inning,
began to “nurse” them with great care, uml,
at length, amid tho wildest enthusiasm, closed
tho game with a finely-played run, beating
Blosson 2£4 points.

opposite the Jackson street front of the (Jrand
Pacific Hotel would be selected for tlx build

had been spoken of, and could probably
be purchased, but lie did not think It would be
large enough. The ground now occupied by
tlx Johnson building, corner of Clark and v> ash-
Inaton streets, would be very desirable, but he
did not believe It could be obtained at a reason
able figure. However, there were suitable attea
on Monroe street and on other thoroughfares,
close to the business cenlre, and now
was the lime to secure one mid
build a handsome building. The pres

been a pacing concern, and be saw no reason
why a more suitable edifice would not be ad

Cleveland, 0., Jan. 80.—Judge Spear, ok
the Common Picas Court of Mahoning Connty t
this morning gave a decision In tbe case of
State of Ohio vs. George W. Halo et aL for con
tempt of court. Tbls la Important as getting at
the bottom of tbe matter In controversy. In tho
Iron-mill war tho question to be determined waa
whether, under tho facta as developed by the
evidence, the respondent, George W. Halo,
should be held to answer for violation of tho
restraining order of Jan. 21, granted In the case
of Joseph 11. Brown, Herbert O, Ayer, and
Henry J. Higgins vs. George W. Bale and
Brown, Borrcll & Co., a mining and mannfao
turing corporation organized under the law of
Ohio. That suit was brought to obtain
an Injunction against tho defendants,
in order to prevent George W. Hale
from voting, at tho annual election to be held
on Jan. 21, at 10 o’clock, forDlrectors of Brown,
Horrell «fc Co., upon certain shares of stock of
said corporation, representing at Its full value
$(25,000, which It was claimed was in fast owned
by the plaintiffs, but which bad been assigned,
or, rather, certificates bad been assigned,
to Mr. Hall as collateral security
or a note for some $33,000
or over, hold by him against the plaintiff,
Brown, coming due in the year 1860. The do
dfslon Is very long, and rendered In careful
legal language. Tho conclusion is as follows:
“ Upon all this showing, It would seem that tho
conclusion Is Inevitable that within tbe mean
ing of that order of Jan. SI, Mr. Bale’s action
was a participation tn the election, and, whether
Intended or not, waa a disregard of the order. It
Is uot desired on the part of anr one, and least
of all on mr part, that Ur. Bale’s conduct
should be hardly criticised and he harshly
treated; hot, bolding these views, confidently
believed to bo Justified by the facts, we can do
no leee than order that Mr. Bale mate restitu
tion as far as he can, and put the complaining
parties, so far as bis action may do that, In at
good position aa they were before. It is
not believed that tbls Court has any
power to order tbe expurglng of aur record, nor
would Ibo Induced to do so, but it la believed
that Mr. Hole, In order to purgo himself fully,
and make restitution, ought to distinctly and
Irrevocably resign tho ofllco of Director, and bo
