A verdict that surprised the court and most of thoe who beard the evid ence was brought in yesteriay before Judge Gordon, in Quarter Sessions Court No. 1, when the jury acquitted Joeeph Holland who was cbargea wnn conducting an extensive "speak-easy" under the cloak of a chaptered club. The verdict was wholly unexpected by the majority of those wno w.tness'-a the trial. Judge Gordon turned to wards the jury box and eaid: 'Gentlemen of the jury, I desire to say tbat I wholly dinsent from your verdict. It it agint tbe law and the evidence and is a signal failure of jus tice. A clearer cee of deliberate and persistent violation of law could not have been presented. For years the defendant has defied the authorities and gone unharmed, and now, when at last he is brought to the br of the court, and hia guilt establUbed by ab solutely incontrovertible evidence, by his own testimony and that of his wit nesses, by the papers te nas onerea in ev'denoe,and by the fullest possible proof, you have ignored your solemn duty and set him at liberty, trium phant over iuatice.

A State Campaign on National Issues Tammany and Governor Black Tammany's 'Tactics Have Thrown 10,000 Men Out of Work-Minister Woodford's Arrival The Awful Possibilities of a Panic in New York The Metal Markets. Special Correspondence of the Herald. New York, "May 10. A campaign on national issues is tbe meaning of the address to the people adopted by the republican state committee, last Saturday. Such a campaign, it is held, must heal the factional differences and unite the party. "Dissensions in our ranks would be little less than treason to tbe flag." That is tbe keynote of tbe address. Support the republican party in this state election and thus support the president in his eonduet of the war, the adjustment of a victor ious peace, and the maintenance of tha national credit against all crazy flnan cial schemes. Tbat is the substance of the argument advanced by the state committee, and no doubt it will appeal strongly to most, republican . voters It will also command tbe sup port . of many- . independent vot ers. , II tbe war is. in progress in November doubtless many independ enta and democrats may consider it a point of patriotism to vote tha repub lican ticket, simply that the president may be able to show the world t,hat be has. tbe support of .the country; but in all probability the war will be oyer before the election; take. place, and tbe old issues which divide the two parties will be fought over. again.. .The meeting of the state .committee has developed one fact, and tbat is if Sen' a tor Piatt should be foolhardy .enough to attempt to prevent the renomlna- tion of Governor Black because of his Independence of action this year, the attempt will almost surely v meet with defeat in the state convention, or if successful there will , result in party disaster at the polls. Tammany has not fared very well at the hands of Governor Black this year, The governor is a good organization man,, but he has discovered that trad ing with Tammany is not popular with tbe people. In fact, be has greatly in creaeed his strength and popularity by stopping all of Tammany's pet schemes of legislation. He is large'y respon sible for the law which prevents Tarn many from controlling the municipal civil service rules. One of his last acts has been to kill the bill for the in create of teachers' salaries in this city Although Mayor Van Wyck is com plaining loudly that the city has no money for bridges, rapid transit, pub lic library and new school bouses, he approved of this bill for the increase of teachers' salaries in tbe hope that, if the governor signed it. tbe legislat ure, and not himself, would be bfld responsible for the increased expend it ure. But Governor Black refused to sign the bill, on the ground tbat the local authorities had ample power to deal with the subject witbout legisla tive sanction. Thus he throws back on Mayor Van Wyck the responsibility for tbe measure. Tammany's policy of suspending near ly all city improvements on account of the alleged excess in tbe municipal in- debtness has, as has already, been re ported, aroused the indignation of the laboring classes, to whom this aotion means the throwing of about 10,000 GttKATMT,BerOTBjiItBorVafla actually purifies, and .awiohea. t) blood, tone th storaach, creates an . appetite, strengthens tbe system.. Greatest,-Because it k the result of scientific knowledge, careful study and wise . experiment ia adapting Nature's own. remediaa to jthe aeada of the human system. . Greatest, Because it holds the first , place In thousands of households aa the medicine which, having accom plished so many marvelous cures of serious diseases, may be depended ' upon to overcome lesser ills. Greatest, Because of tbe greatest cures, greatest merit, greatest sales, . greatest bold upon the confidence of the people as an hottest medicine. " My little boy broke out on his f aoe aad head with what seemed to pa a heavy rash. We consulted a physician who de cided it was a severe case of eczema. Ia spite of medical treatment the baby's head and face grew worse and in three months his entire body was covered with a thick, mattery, bleeding crust. The little one saffered from a terrible itching whiaa lad him to scratch himself almoet nnnne singly Be continued to suBar In this way for five leng years. I resolved to try Hood's Sar aa par ilia. I had not given tbe little suf ferer more than half a bottle of it when I could see a change for the better. Tha itching almost entirely ceased and he slept well and had a good appetite. I continued and applied three boxes of Hood's Olive Ointment to bis flesh. I then had tha pleasure of seeing my darling boy without a scar, and there has never been any retain ot the malady." Man.

This indig nation was vigorously expressed at a Sunday meeting of the Central Labor Union, and a motion was carried to ap peal to the mayor at once. One of tbe delegates reported that even contract ors, about the legality of whose con tracts there is no dispute, cannot get their money from the controller, aod thousands of men in tbe building tra des are idle in consequence. "I am ashamed," he said, "to be a citizen of a city which will not pay its just debts." It is evident that Richard Croker be fore his departure to England ordered District Attorney Marean of Brooklyn to be easy in his prosecution of Police Commissioner Phillips on the indict ment, against him for complicity in the Brooklyn bribery scandal. A re port alleging Mr. Croker 's interfer ence is prevalent, and it is declared that he bas interferred at tbe request of Senator Piatt, who is supposed to be anxious to save Mr. Phillips, an old friend of his and a brother of one of thje -present police commissioners of New York City. Minister Wocdford arrived here Sunday on the Frenoh steamer La Touraine, but tha stprm. f spo ilea tb proposed reception to him at quaran tine. ( Nevertheless, t eight K of bis Brooklyn friends met him there, and others greeted him at tbe steamship dock,.. His law partner escorted him to his home in Gates avenue, and in the afternoon the minister left for Washington. .- He politely declined . to be interviewed on the ground that be ing still in , the diplomatic ., service it would bo improper for him to talk for publication., George S. Sickles, the secretary of legation, and the other members of his party, were equally re ticent. They were all, however, en thusiastic over Dewey's victory at Manila, of which they first learned when the news was , signalled to the steamer from the Nantucket Shoals Lightship. a "Of course," said a prominent mem ber of the chamber of commerce today, "I do not believe a Spanish fleet could get near enough to New York lo bom bard the oity, but supposing that the unexpected happened, and aSpanieh ad miral tucotded in getting in tbe same position enjoyed by Commodore Dewey at Manila, aod .was able to give tbe twenty-four hours' notice of bonbarc meat, have you ever considered wba' would be the lamentable . sltua tion of our peop'e? Take tbe map of Greater New York. You see that most of tbe oity is built on islands, Manhat tan Inland, Long Island, Staten I -land How eould 3,000,000 people escape to a piace of safety from these islands in twenty-four houro? In every direction water to be crossad, and at no time are there enough boats in tbe city to carry everbody across even in a day's time. What a panic there would be. Brook lyn people would be in tbe best pesi tion, for they could retreat out on Long Island, which is so large as to constitute a. reasocaoly safe refuge." : Alexander E. Orr has been re-elected to a fifth term as president of the cham ber of commerce, and George Wilson, the able, and popular secretary, was for the thirtieth time re-elected His term of service with the chamber bas been forty years. Tha chamber passed resolutions in favor of an inter national bank as an aid to foreign trade.,. " There baa been only modtrat 11 actu ation in pig tin prices the past wek. and the general position of tbe market has not changed to any remarkable ex tent. Spot business was mostly at prices in line with 14.65 14.60o ex ship or in store and 14.65 a 14.70a free - on board, for lots pf five tpna Pr more. In the Lon don market prompt deliveries . sold down to 65 7s 6d and reached to 65 15s, closing at the latter price, with three months futures at about 12s 6d premium. Importations at Atlantic ?)rts the past week . were 695 tons, he amount of tin afloat for the United States Is 4,470 tons. Generally the condition of the cop per market. was the sam? at the close of he week. During the interval no unusual developments have, taken place and about the only distinct fea ture is that shipments to Europe fell off omewhat Values held firm at about 121o for Lake Superior in round lots and 12ic for small parcels from store for immediate delivery; 11 a 12c for electrolytic bars, etc., and Hi a life for casting stock. Merchant bars in London declined to 51 7s 6d for prompt delivery aod 51 17s 6d for three tuontv a futures. The exports during the week ending May 6th were about 680 tons. There has been some endeavor to awaken livelier buying interest in pi; lead here, but this met resistance from buyers in tbe shape of apnarent determination to purchase as 8f arintl as possible. Besides the latter draw back, slight pressure by a few holders hai rather unfavorable bearing, and prices eased off to about 3.65 a 3.67 1 7c tor common domestic for early del ivery. In tbe London market soft Spanish opened and closed at 4 0s, meanwhile selling atlOj less. A full sort of market has been ex perienced here for spelter and tbe de mand at the close was spiritless. Prices have been somewhat unsettled by offerings of inferior product that come up occasionally, but popular rands are still quoted at 4.20c deliver ed here. Sales were made on tbat basis for delivery at various other points. Astor Place. jwwmiirmmmnmmwvmwrmMiUW A Sale of Housekeeping Necessities that will Delight Housekeepers.

From the New York Tribune. Anion the buoiotf-sts which have been benefited by the war ii tbat of the shooting galleries. Even before war was cellared the patrons of t!ie ebooiing galleries btg.n to increase in number, and in tbe lat fsw days tey are sa d to have exceeded ail pr- Vioua records. Tne galleries in the B. wecy and Third-ave. have b-n particularly .tie pe l by tbe rush, and many of th ii ha e beta fil.t-d wita cue .omr-' from Jay.'trb'. to dark or ratber till d ilgbt t gain.

The proprietors of the shorting cal lerk'3 have been by no metm slow o take advantage of the in 'reused bur ners which has of lata ci me lo their places, and they are offering extra io duotments to their customers in the way of new targets and other things. The revolving bird aod anima' targets have given way to targets of Spanish -oldiers, and among them are likeness ofvGunera' Weyler. It is needless to remark that tbe unpopular Spanish general hs been shot to pieces almost daily. . Whenever a soldier - or sailor enters a shooting gallery and sees a target represen mg General Weyler he seems to turn his gun instinctively on. tbat unfortunate mark, and is never satisfied until he has hit the bull's-eye at least half a dozen times. When a party of soldiers or sailors enter to- gethT and spy a Weyler target one of tbem will instantly ex-;laim: -uive me a craca at toe outcner. All 1 want ia one crack.'.' . "No, let me get at him!" a half dozen of his comrades will shout, and there is a gret scramble to get in the first hot. Tbe rest of the targets are ne glected, and every man insists on crack ing away at the Weyler image uotll the guns in the gallery have to be plut ged into a troueh of cold water to cool them off.

Love is a raging and tumultuous ocean Where waves, in thousand forma, leap hut and high; Friendship, a mountain lake where no com- j motion Breaks the blue image of tbe solemn sky.
