WILMINGTON, DEL., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1892. FIFTH YEAR. NEWS ACROSS THE SEA. A Budget of the Day's Events in Old World Centres. CONTROVERSIES RACK FRANCE A Search for Missing Papers of the Late Duron Kelnaeh, Which Will, It is Thought, Throw Some Light on the Panama Canal Steal—Carnot Perplexed Over the Formation of a New Cabinet. Other News. Paris, Nov. 80. —The relatives of Baron Reinach, while opposing the dis turbance of his body will, it is said, not offer any vexatious resistance to the authorities, should an autopsy bo deter mined upon. His friends claim, how ever, that even if poison should be dis covered, it would prove nothing, owing to the baron's habit of experimenting with poisons. What the public are most interested in is the baron's papers, some of which, it Is said, have disappeared, and which would be highly valuable, If reports are true, in showing whore much of the money went which was expended In peculiar ways for the Panama canal. There is no doubt that scores' o f deputies are trembling with fear and ex posure, and all of these voted for the overthrow of the 'government in order, if possible, to cover up their tracks dur ing the ensuing examination. The supporters of the new Panama company are also strongly opposed to the prose cution. M. Moncbicourt.the judicial liquidator of the Panama canal company,is reported to have declared that he has had noth ing to do with the prosecution of the directors. In his opinion such action will be detrimental to the re-cOntruction of the company inasmuch as the public will only look at the faults committed , losing sight altogether of the efforts by which it has sought to resuscitate the scheme with reference to the reported prolongation of the period of the com pany's concession. Still Angry Toward De I.es»up». Notwithstanding the sympathy of many with M. De Lessups, public opinion throughout France Is in favor of the action of the government against M. De Lessups and his associates lu the Panama enterprise. Even those who do not doubt his good faith or honesty, say that he carried his optimism too far and led them astray. It was he they add, and be alone, who induced them to invest their bard-earned savings under the pretention that Pan ama would outdo the Suez canal and ensure them and their families large fortunes. This deception, however, un intentional It may have been, they can not forgive, and although since the final collapse of the undertaking, now three years ago, their anger has calmed down, still they demand that justice shall be dealt out to all parties guilty of irregu larities. Much speculation exists as to whether M. Ricard will be in the cabinet. This is considered as impossible, as President Carnot has been as strongly opposed to the Panama prosecution a» M. Loubet, to say nothing of De Freycinet, Ribot and Bouvier. Clerical» Rejoice at Klcard'» Downfall. The clericals are greatly rejoiced over the dowfall of H. Ricard on account of his severity in dealing with the church and especially with tho archbishop of Avignon and the bishops of Niroes, Montpellier,Valence andVlviers for their address to Catholic electors in April last. N. Ricard has sternly repressed every indication on the part of the clergy of a disposition to interfere in secular affairs and has thereby incurred the hearty Ulwill of the church party iu the chamber. President Carnot Perplexed. President Carnot is said to be deeply perplexed by the situation which he had hoped to the last to avoid. It is inti mated that he views the overthrow the ministry as strengthening Constans his rivalry for the presidency by causing a tendency on the part of the Bourgeoise to look to the strong han d of Constans for protection.. Mrs. Deacon Answers Charges. Mrs. Deacon says, regarding the charge that her husband would name as co spondents in a suit for divorce Prince Poix, Leon Renault and Rochefourault: "My acquaintance with the gentlemen mentioned is most formai. I know their wives slightly, but husbands have never been in my house. This is, also, only another instance Mr. Deacon's infamy. "In regard to the refusal of the vent authorities to daughter, Gladys, Mr was so scandalous that the mother super ior, who is a good friend of mine, properly refused to keep Uie child. told Mr. Deacon whea he called course she would jje obliged to pursue if he pçrsistç(J-*n to^presa," M.

The article continues; "A private telegram from a reliable house says the crops in Texas are much larger is generally thought the total supply of cotton being scarcely 100,000 bales nnber the yield of 1801." The News, sperking of the monetary conference, says it is understood the proposed limit of the legal tender silver will be reddeen to £4. It also ts that inasmuch as Sir William Harcourt selected Alfred Rothschild as a delegate to the monetary conference tho last named gentleman probably received an inkling that during except Vernon British government will support hist "The silver The Standard says: market is not favorably impressed with M.

The entire silver currency now amount i $480,<100.0 K) and ' Rothschild's scheme would demonetize $100,300,000," Mr. Bland says tho adoption of ills plan would mean the loss of $ 100 , 000,000 of U. 8 . silver currency, and Mr. Bland cannot believe that the United Stales commissioners will over agree to it. It is the boldest scheme for the con traction and demonetization of silver ever proposed he says, and is nothing less than Die first step toward an en deavor on the part of the gold borons to stop all use of silver as currency.

Hradley Makes a Plunge as a Speculator In Special Con stables' Commissions—He Is a Heavy Loser. Tho partisan spirit displayed by United States Mahaffy in this and previous elec tions has cost New Castle county a pretty penny. The question now upper most in the minds of many persons is whether the Levy court, as now consti tuted, will pay for the special constables appointed by Governor Reynolds to offset the Federal interference of Mahaffy and Chief Supervisor of Elections Samuel A. Macallister, who-made themselves more obnoxious to Delawareans than Daven port is to New Yorkers. Tho special constables will cost New Castle county just #18,080. Vouchers fur this amount were sent to Secretary of Slate David T. Marvel yesterday. The number of commissions issued by the governor was l,3h0. Of this number 1,007 constables were appointed and seventy-nine of these only did service two days. Tho balance were under orders for three days. The amount paid to each mau was #5 a day. .Mean» .ImUlled the End.. There is not a conservative man in Wilmington who does not acknowledge that tho peaceful election In this city due to an Australian ballot law passed by a Democratic General Assembly and a force of special constables ap pointed by a Democratic governor and commanded by a cool and level-headed Democrat. The knowledge that Chief Dolan could send (KM) or 800 determined men to any given point in the city in from ten to twenty minutes served to quell the law less element and to prevent Marshal Mahaffy 's creatures from interfering with the election and fomenting strife when they should have been the conservators of the peace. Tlie Democratic party leaders boldly assert that Marshal Mahaffy is responsi ble for the appointment of those (consta bles. His outrageous methods two years ago wore Assembly tepass the law authorizing the governor to make such appointments. Mnhaffy's breach of faith with Hon. Thomas F. Bayard and other Democratic leaders ef'that time compelled the Demo crats to distrust him and ;to resolve to appoint the special constables, no matter what assurances of fair treatment might be sent out by tho self-constituted auto crat or satrap of the District of Dela ware. Want of faith in the Individual who said that a mau could doubt his respecta bility but he'd he d—d if a mau could doubt his decency impelled both Demo crats and Republicans to exclude him from the peace conference composed of Chairman Willard Ssulsbury, Jr., of the Democratic county executive committee ; Chairman ■ ■ what constrained the General 11 . Burris, of Martin KepnbllOM I live committee, and Sheriff William Simmons, guardian of this bailiwick. Tlie same want of faith caused Chair Burris to suggest that deputy county execu tho man marshals and special constables be done away with and that the preservation of the peace be left in the hands of Sheriff Simmons and a »mall, nonpartisan force of deputy sheriffs', Knowledge of Mahaffy 's political tac tics led Chairman Saulsbury to insist upon the appointment of the constables and to agree to allow Sheriff Simmons to have control until such time as Marshal Mahaffy should show his offleiousueas. An utter disregard for party faith aud want of common sense Induced Marshal Mahaffy to oppose the wishes of both parlies by swearing in hordes of negroes as depute- marshals and rushing into publie print to defend the indefensible „land which he had taken. His want of ability cost the people at large about $5,000 for deputy marshals and the people of New Castle county $ 10,000 for special constables to r rnicious influence of Mahaf Macallisterism.
