LondonTalk Regarding the Big^Yacht Event - How People^There Look at the Affair-^General Gossip.
Copyrighted1895 by Associated Press.
Berlin,Sept. 14.^According to mili^^tary experts, the army maneuvers In^the vicinity of Stettin this week have [^been a great success and have demon^^strated amply the excellent discipline^of the men. It has also been shown j^according to the same authorities that |^the days of usefulness of cavalry are |^by no means past, us has been asserted j^In some quarters, -Both German and |^foreign experts are loud In their praises j^Of the skill displayed by Emperor Will-^lam In handling the troops In Thurs^^day's action, which followed tho plan^which he had personally designed. A^new system of Held telegraph which^was Introduced In this engagement^proved that most successfully. Per^^haps the only thing In connection with^the army maneuvers which has left^any ill feeling is the fat't that the^count of Turin, second son of King^Humbert of Italy, was treated with^decided coolness at Stettin.
Thesquadron of evolution maneu^^vering at sea off Dantzlc put ln'to the^roads to-day accompanied by the royal^yacht Holienxollern with Emperor Will^^iam on board.
Sincethe emperor's denunciation of^socialists the seizure of socialist pa^^pers and the arrest of their editors^have been Incidents of almost dally^occurrence. The Vossiehe Zeltung of^this city warns the government against^ill advised attacks upon the liberty of^the press. The ministers are all tak^^ing their holidays, and it is impossible^that any decided antl-soclallst meas^^ure will be adopted at once. It Is^known, however, that Count Von Eu-^lenberg, who Is credited with having^great influence with the Emperor Will-^lam, has been strongly advising his^sovereign towards more vigorous re^^pressive enactments. A Hamburg^newspaper declares that the Imperial^chancellor, Prince Hohcnlohe, will re^^sign his ofllce If the emperor should^Insist upon the introduction of any^such measure.
Thepromotion of Count Von Walder-^aee to be a field marshal has directed^attention anew to a man who is des^^tined to play a leading part In the next^great war in which Germany is en^^gaged. Von Waldersee Is regarded as^Von Moltke's ablest pupil. His hand^^ling of the ninth army corps at the^Stettin maneuvers proved him to be^a capable strategist.
Theconservatives are meeting the^attacks of Baron Von Hammers'teln,^impugning their political Integrity with^patriotic vigor. A committee repre^^senting the Kreutz Zeltung publishes^a statement to-day which is signed by^Count Von Flnckensteln to the effect^that Baron Von Hammersteln was sus^^pended from the position of chief edi^^tor of that paper In July and since^then facts that have been brought to^light which have compelled the com^^mittee Anally to break off all relations^with the baron and that the latter had^been placed In the hands of the public^prosecutor. In addition the Kreutz^Zeltung states that it is found, upon^competent authority, that Von Ham-^mersteln resigned his seat In 'the relch-^stag and the house on the 11th Inst.

l.ondnu'iiLetter.^Copyrighted 1895 by Associated Press.
London,Sept. 11.^Starboard tack^rules of the road at sea, the right of a^yacht engaged in a race to claim a^course free from the Impediment of^the pleasure craft and principally the^Earl of Dunraven's conduct In refus^^ing to finish the races for that most^famous of International sporting tro^^phies, the America's cup, have formed^the principal topic of discussion In^London the last few days. It must be^admitted, despite the fair comments^of the best among t'he London newspa^^pers and the polite assurance of such^a power In the yachting world as Mr.^Ormonde, vice commodore- of the Royal^Yacht Squadron, that American yachts^and yachtsmen will always be welcome^here, that this will not be the case.^There has always been a feeling here^against Americans, as has fairly been^shown In all the recent International^contests. Every American who has^lived for any length of time In England^must have become familiar with this^feeling, which crops out on all occa^^sions. A former American ambassador,^who was one of the most popular men^who ever came to England, once said^to a representative of the associated^press, alluding to an article in the St.^James Gazette: ^I regard that paper^the exponent of the true feeling of the^British as regard America. They do^not like us and there Is no use trying^to persuade ourselves otherwise.
Thegreat rush of Americans home-^w.irl 1 und Is perceptibly diminishing,^according to reports from the steam^^ship ofllce.
ItIs disputed here that the New^York Central ^ Hudson Itiver railway^In its run from New Tork to Buffalo^has beaten the English railway record.^It is elalmed that the run from Lon^^don to Aberdeen on Aug. 23, a dis^^tance sC 54S miles, was made in 512^minutes. Including stops, an average^speed of CJ miles and 490 yards an^hour, while the run from New Tork to^Bulf.il ^ average 17 yards less than^that mud in Gn at Britain.
Politicalquestions have begun to at^^tract attention again in London. Just^now the difficult problems of tire rais^^ing of ra-^^ty funds and the perfecting^of party organization are troubling the
leadersof the liberal party. Most of^the old-flaehioned and wealthy liberals,^who had been accustomed to support^the party, have been driven Into the^ranks of the liberal-unionists by the^veering of t'he party toward extreme^radicalism. As a result the radicals are^only able to look to successful trades^^men and others of that class who axe^willing to take peerages and other hon-^ora In return for contributions of^money It defray the party expenses.
Atthe British Scientific association's^annual session at Ipswich on Wednes^^day, there was a rattier dull and acad^^emic discussion of the bimetallsia'^proposition. Mr. Crehl, secretary of the^Gold Standard Defense association,^spoke for the monomeralHsts and read^to the association the letter from Mr.^Gladstone, In which the venerable^statesman declared his adherence to the^opinions which he expressed In parlia^^ment two and a half years ago, and^predicted that the bimetailists agita^^tion would be short lived. Little inter^^est was shown In the discussion.
Thenewspapers haye not ceased to^comment on 'the fiasco of races for the^America's cup. The press of London Is^practically unanimous in the expres^^sion of o|^lnion that there will be no^more challenges to sail for the famous^trophy under the present generation.
Thereare rumors of the approaching^marriage of the Marquis of Worcester.^Should they prove true, the event^might have a vital bearing on the for^^tunes of the son Of Lady Henry Somer^^set, the nephew of the Marquis of Wor^^cester, who in view of the celibacy of^his uncle up to this time, had come to^be regarded as the future Duke of^Beaufort.
TheGerman firemen on board the^American line steamship St. Louis,^were In a condition of semi-mutiny dur^^ing the time the vessel was at South^^ampton this week. They are motley^and dangerous, and for the most part^unable to speak the English language.^They appear to be Jealous of the pres^^ence ot Englishmen among them. They^etig.iged in a general fight on Wednes^^day, In the course of which an English^trimmer was stabbed and thrown over^^board, the German firemen threaten^^ing to kill him If he should return. He^appealed to the local magistrate for re^^lease from his engagements, but the^ship's agents refused to discharge hlni^and Instead warned the engineers of^the St. Louis that they would be held^responsible for his safety.
SEEKINGA DIVORCE
LANGTRYHASN'T LIVED WITH^HER HUSBAND FOR YEARS.
HerLawyer Talks About the Case^sheIs^Is Now In linden linden - Will^Apply in California.
NewYork, Sept. 14.^The oft-irepeated^rumor that Mrs. Langtry, the actress,^was seeking a divorce from her hus^^band, from whom she has been separ^^ated many years, 1s again revived, this^time wfth some appearance of truth.^The application will be filed, it Is said,^in the California courts, Mrs. Langtry^having a residence in Lake county In^that state. A. H. Hummel, her coun^^sel, said: ^I can't say that the suit^has not been forough't. I will neither^affirm nor deny the story as to the^suit.
Ihave received a communication^from Mrs. Langtry,^ he added, ^dated^lladen Baden, where she now Is. If^the suit is brought it will be the first^time she has ever tried to be legally^freed from Iher husband. The idea that^a divorce pranited in this Country would^not hold In England, that she would^commit bigamy if ah6 married a second^time over there, is all wrong. Her di^^vorce In the California or any other^courts would foe effective anywhere.
Mrs.Langtry's husband is a gentle^^man of very quiet manners. He lost^one fortune on the London stock ex^^change, and has made another .

loa lliitry.^Special Dispatch to the Standard.
Helena,Mont., Sept. 14.^Gambling,^which opened up in this city a week^ago, was stopped for good to-night bv^County Attorney Purcell and City Mar^^shal McCann. For several days It has^been common report that faro games^were running at four places, all up^stairs, In the city. The music of the^chips could be heard on any still night^fmm the walk In front of Parchen's^drug store or Tom Cronln's place on^Main street. The county attorney and^Marshal McCann visited the places^yesterday afternoon and ordered them^to close up If gambling was going on.^They were not able to find any games^running, but were satisfied that gamb^^ling had been going on. To-night the^marshal and Sergeant Callahan raided^the joint In the Parchen building, ar^^resting the alleged proprietors, Pete^Kelley and Donald Mitchell, and three^other men. Half a I ^zen men who had^been bucking the tiger escaped. The^two principals were brought before^Judge Oage. They waived examina^^tion and were bound over to lh^^ dis^^trict court on the charge of gambling,^giving 1500 bonds. The other men were^released on their own recognition.

NewYork. 8ept. H.^The chief attrac^^tions of the last day's racing at Slueps-^head bay was the eastern handicap for^2-year-olds, on which there was a good^deal of betting. Several were heavily^played, although Margrave had the best^of It In the end. The flag fell to a good^start and Margrave was the first to^show. He ran well and true to the last,^but Ono I Love was too much for him^In the last eighth, when she rushed^ahead of Applegate, who dropped away^back from second and then for a furlong^there was a ding-dong finish, In which^the filly got Ike verdict by ^ seed, la^the first rare Excess was an even-money^favorite, but could do no better than sec^^ond. There was a big field In the sec^^ond race and Premier was finally settled^on as the favorite, although Grannon's^persistent attacks drove Prince Lief^down from 10 to 1 to 5 to L at which^price he went to the post, lie took the^lead with the fail of the flag and won In^a drive from the outsider, Carlb. A sorry^lot was In the third race, with Darlen as^a 1 to 2 shot, and he won by half a^lengbth. Then came the great eastern^handicap and the Autumn ei:p followed,^only three being 1n the latter, Orlnda^taking the place of Counter Tenor, who^was scratched.

Missoula,Sept. 11.^If ever e verdict^gave surprise to the general public. It^was the one brought In to-night by the^Jury In the Clark murder ei.t^. anl^when the clerk of the court r i l to it^the Jury found Edward and Anna^Clark guilty of inut I r in the second^degree, amazement was depleted upon^evrry face In the court room, except^the Jury and Judge. It was generally^believed that the Jury must, under the^law, find rhe defendants either guilty^of murder In the first degree or inno^^cent, as Mm case had been such as to
createtlpinion that the death of
rltewurtwms either a deliberately^planned murder or else suicide.
Whenthe court opened this morning^I. G. Denny continued the argument^for the defendants. He spoke for an^hour and a half and made an eloquent^and able plea, for his clients. He re-^viewed all the evidence In the case and^argued that all led to eulwrtantlate, the^theory of suicide. S. O. Murray fol^^lowed with the closing argument for^the state, and his discussion of the^case was devoted to the breaking down^of the suicide theory and to tile estab^^lishing of Use motive on the [nan of the^Clarks for killing Stewart. Mr. Mur^^ray made a clean, clo.se argument and^his speech crested a favorable Imnres-^slon. Judge Woody gave the Jury In^^structions and declared a recess soon^after noon.
Allthe afternoon speculation was^rife regarding the verdict, and tile gen^^eral opinion was that the state had^made .i w eak .use. an l . it.it a eonvlc-^tlon of murder In the first degree was^Impossible. The evidence waa entirely^circumstantial, and although the uni^^versal opinion In the neighborhood of^the scene of Stewart's death waa that^MM Clarks were guilty there was no^^thing In the evidence that seemed to^connect them with the crlnae,
Itwas 7:52 o'clock when Sheriff Mc^^Laughlin and ivputy Corbett brought^Edward and Anna Clark Into the e ear^room, w'here the Jury and officers of^the court were assembled. There was^only a scattering audience, as the foot^was not generally known that the Jury^had agreed. At 7:55 Clerk of the Count^McConnell received the verdict from^the'hands of Judge Woody. There was^a minute of bnsithless silence, and^^then the clerk read the verdict which^pronounced Edward anl Anna Clark^guilty of murder In the second degree.^No sound disturbed the deathly silence,^save the violent weeping of Mrs. Clark^and the low tones of her husliand as lie^endeavored to comfort her. It was an^affecting scene. Ti en the attorneys for^the defense asked that the Jury be^polled. One by on^ the Jurors answer^^ed to their namcti until 12 had nss. ntc.l^to the verdict. Then nil was over.^Judge Woody set Tuesday, at 1 o'clock^p. m. as the time for sentence, and the^Jury was H Med
Mrs.Clark was borne weeping from^the court loom and t/lie audience filed^solemnly after. This was the c] sing^scene In one of the most sensational^trials i vcr ImM In this | cjntry. As^stat. l iilmve. the whole community Is^surprise! at the verdict. No matter^what the opinion was as to the guilt^of the accused, It was generally con^^ceded that the state IM 1 failed to^prove the charge.
Severalhundred people are trying to^figure out how there could b ^ any com^^promise verdict. The Jurors made an^agreement before leaving the Jury^room to divulge nothing of the pro^^ceedings.
