London April 30 At the Bow street
police court to day the trial of Capt Ed
mund II Verney member of parliament
for North Buckinghamshire charged with
instigating the procuration of tho gov
erness Miss Nellie Beckett for immoral
purposes adjourned from Fridaj last was
continued The courtroom was crowded
with people of all classes who were de
sirous of hearing the sensational testi
mony which it was expected would be
the feature of this days hearing of this
celebrated case Many letters signed Wil
son tho name which Capt Verney is
charged with assuming wero identified as
being in Capt Vemeys handwriting Hall
porter of a fashionable club testified
to the fact that tho letters addressed
to Wilson were duly forwarded at
Capt Vemeys request to the various ad
dresses This testimony seemed to have
considerable effect upon the friends of
Cain Verney who were present in court
and the prisoners assurance seems to be
decidedly weakening
But this evidence had a mild effect in
comparison with the great sensation which
was caused in the police court when the
woman named Louise Adeline keeper of a
hotei situated in Rue Lafitte Paris
testified to tho fact that Capt
Verney had called upon her on
seven or eight different occasions and asked
her to procure for him two or threo girls
promising her 100 frances if she succeeded
Witness added that in spite of the captains
solicitations and the inducements which he
held forth she positively refused to under
take the procuration referred to
Capt Verney was finally held for trial and
the bail was increased from J10000 to 25

Honorable Gentlemen of the Senate and

urn glad to welcome you to the first session

for measures adapted of progress and de
velopment to the Dominion

United States to be notified of tho willing
ness of the government of Canada to join in
asking efforts for extension and develop
ment of trade between the republic and the
dominion as well as for friendly adjust
ment of those matters Of international
character which remain unsettled I am
pleased to say that these representations
have resulted iu the assurance that iu Oc
tober nest the government of the United
States will be prepared to enter into a con
ference to consider the best means of ar
riving at a practical solution of these im
portant questions
Papers relating to this subject will be
laid before you Under tho circumstances
and in tho hope that tho proposed confer
ence may result in arrangements beneficial
to both countries you will bo called upon
to consider the expediency of extending for
the present session the principal provisions
of the Washington treaty of 1SSS known as

safeguards for life and greater restrictions

that regard your attention will bo invited
to measures which will remove all reason
able apprehensions of abuses arising in the
future in connection with so important a
branch of our commerce
You will bo asked to consider amend
ments to acts relating to Northwest terri
tories to the exchequer court act and to
acts relating to trado marks
Gentlemen of tho houso of commons

FRENCHY NO 1
It Is Supposed That He Entered the
Womans Iloom Quarreled With Her
and Killed Her
New York April 30 Inspector Byrnes
this morning made a public statement to
the effect that the man known as Frenchy
No 1 was ascertained to have slept in the
East Rvrr hotel on tho night of tho mur
der The murdered woman Carrie Martin
occupied room No 31 while Frenchy No 1
slept in room No 33 On tho evening of
the night of the murder Carrie Brown was
seen going into the hotel in company with a
strange man This man left the place be
fore midnight It is believed that Frenchy
No 1 then went to Carrie Browns room
that they quarrelled and that the result of
the tow was tho murder of the woman
The belief that the murderer has been
found has been substantiated by the follow
ing facts
When Frenchy No 1 completed his
murderous work he recrossed the hall to
room No 33 In that room he left evidence
of his guilt When the police made their
investigation traces of blood were to be
found on every side The only chair the
room contained was covered with blood
smeared over it from tho clothes the mur
derer wore he having sat down upon it
when he entered tho room Tho bed
clothes were found to be covered with
blood the murderer sometime during the
night having thrown himself upon the bed
His stockings he having removed his shoes
to do his bloody work were soaked with
blood and his clothes were also covered
with blood
On the walls and ceding of the little
room many small spots of blood wero found
the man having evidently entered tho room
with his hands red with blood and in his
desire to remove it had shaken and slapped
his hands and fingers thus literally dis
tributing blood about the room
When the fellow was arrested Inspector
Byrno examined his hands and finger
nails The latter he carefully scraped and
found plain and distinct traces of human
blood To positively establish tho fact the
scrapings and dirt found under his nails
wore submitted to chemical analysis
From the time the man was arrested but
little could be learned of him He has
made few statements but all have been so
very contradictory that the police have
been able to make but little use of them

To His Honor It Y Kercodes Mayor of

Sir I have this day examined tho pa
tients sick of smallpox five in number and
the places infected and think that every
precaution necessary to prevent the further
spread of this disease has been promptly
and intelligently taken
I hereby give assurances to neighboring
towns and contiguous counties that quaran
tines against Ro kwall are altogether use
less and all such quarantines should be dis
solved I have the honor to remain your
obedient servant R M Swearenqen
Three of the sick are convalescent and
the people are hopeful that we are ncaring
the end Some of tho neighboring towns
have quarantined against the town of Rock
wall but as there are no cases of smallpox
in the town it seems they are more anxious
to secure the trade of Rockwall county than
to protect themselves from smallpox

Allotment by the Government
Special to the Gazette
Guthrie O T April 30 Hon John C
Robinson the Iowa alloting agent and CoL
Eugene F Weigel special traveling agent
of tho interior department wero in the city
yesterday direct from the Iowa country
and concerning the dispatches recently sent
out from the Sac and Fox agency which
states that tho Iowas had refused to re
ceive their land in allotment Agent Robin
son said
The facts set out in that dispatch were
true a week ago but since an amicable ar
rangement has been brought about and the
Indians are taking their allotments without
objection Tho principal trouble in both
Iowa and Sao and Fox allotments has been
to get the Indians out of the idea that they
could have a body of land for a village
where they could come in for their sun
dances have a congregation of tepees and
a place to graze their ponies during the fes
tival The Indians are loath to give up
their last home where they were allowed
at least a little freedom and while tho pro
vision of the treaties which they have al
ready signed forbid their having dance
grounds tepees and the like as a matter of
course they now at the last moment mako
objections but to no avail and the alloting
is now in rapid progress
Mr Robinson has sixty days from April
IT to allot the Iowas but will finisk his
work before then Thero are 111 names on
the rolls They get sixty acres apiece
3o00 in cash and 2400 in breeding and
farm stock agricultural implements and
seed besides the US annually the latter
being due in September and tho former as
soon as the allotments are completed
There are three agents at work in the Sac
and Fox reservations and the allotments
are being rapidly made In the Cheyenne
and Arapahoe reservations five agents are
required to do tne work The agents have
been appointed and will soon begin their
work Each allotting commission has a
corps of surveyors and the greatest diffi
culty andlmost the only one to yetimpede
progress in this work is thezdifftculties in
finding the old corner stones placed there
seventeen years ago by the government
Boomers and Indians have almost totally
destroyed them It is thought from May
15 the invincible boomers will increase their
clamor and that shortly thereafter the
president will issue his proclamation open

will be made

The Merit System
Special to the Gazette
Washington April 30 Civil service re
form may not play a very important part in
the contest for speaker of the house of rep
resentatives of the Fifty second congress
but the friends of the merit system will
watch the fight with a good deal of interest
There will be a good many men among tho
majority of the next house who have had
no opportunity to acquire any personal
knowledge of what the merit system really
is and who may be very lukewarm in its
support A hostile speaker can do a great
deal of indirect damage to the cause in his
make up of committees and in hindering
the needed legislation and its friends will
do glad to see an advocate ot tne merit sys
tem obtain the office
MILLS TOR SPEAKER
It seems to be taken for granted by a few
politicians now in Washington that tho
failure of Governor Hogg to appoint MilLs
as Senator Reagans successor and the evi
dent disposition of some of the Texas Demo
crats to try and prevent his election to the
senate by the next state legislature has
hurt his chances forgcttingtho speakership
next December It puts him in the light of
being less popular in Texas and it w ill be
used for what it is worth against him in tho
speakership fight Mills has not much of a
record one way or the other ou the question
of civil service reform but adherents of
reform have never regarded him as one of
their number They do not assign him to
the ranks of their active opponents but
they would be agreeably surprised if as
speaker ho should be found taking any
active interest in keeping up or extending
tho merit system They are therefore not
at all disturbed by the suggestion that
Mills is losing ground
TI1E POSITIVE ANNOUNCEMENT
that Secretary Blaine will not allow him
self to be considered as a candidate before
the Republican national convention next
year was the general topic of conversation
here to day Nothing was heard to throw
any light upon Blaines positive withdrawal
and it is expected by many that he will very
soon come out in a letter
The friends of the president are in a much
more satisfied mood than they were a few
days aero when they feared that the sec
retary of state would be seduced to enter
into tho fight again They have had assur
ances such as Russell B Harrison prints in
his paper for some time but that satisfies
them that Blaine is sincere in fact that
his confidential friends have heard some
language from his lips and that they are
quoting it with the evident knowledge that
it will not displease him
The fact that Quay and Clarfcson have
bowed to the inevitable is also taken as
conclusive
THAT SO FIGHT
is to be made against the president
Neither of these gentlemen love Harrison
over much and each have been looking
about for a candidate more to his taste but
they are shrewd politicians and have been
quick to catch the popular drift in the
party
It will be Harrison by acclamation
was what another warm friend of Blaines
said discussing the situation Blaine
could have the nomination if he wanted it
but he will not allow his name to be pre
sented to the national convention He can
not be a candidate whilo he is in tho cabi
net and he will bo loyal to his chief
This is probably one of the secrets of
Blaines early decision If ho meant to
take the nomination in spite of Harrison he
would be obliged to leave tho cabinet This
he cannot afford to do in the midst of his
reciprocity negotiations and he likes his
place too well to give it up if ho can keep
it If Harrison shovld be elected next year
Blaine would bo retained in the cabinet an
other four years and his enthusiastic
friends say he would deviso new measures
for extending our trado and adding to our
prestige which would be as novel and suc
cessful as the reciprocity policy
Blair on the Back Track

Blair in obedience to a dispatch from Sec

My diplomatic future is somewhat prob

derstand that I may be sent to
Japan to succeed Minister Swift
deceased That will suit me equally as well
If not better than China The Japanese
mission is as satisfactory both as to char
acter and the dignity of tho country
and salary Of this possibility as to Japan
however I know nothing definite I should
have proceeded to China emperor or no em

Paris Tex April 30 Moses Morgan
who is charged with the assassination of
his nephew-in-law James Ward is being
tried to day
Ward was shot in October 1SS3 after
nightfall as he was returning home from the
village of Blossom Several grand juries
have investigated the matter but no action

investigate Near where they found Ward
they met Mose Morgan coming from the
direction of the place where Ward was
found He did not go with them to inves
tigate When they found Ward he was
dead and had been shot in the back of the
bead and body

Special to the Gazette
New York April 30 London was chief
factor iu the stock market to day Arbitrage
houses receiving an immense number of
orders in all American stocks dealt in ou
tho other side including inactive securities
like Kansas and Texas and Norfolk and
Western preferred The total purchases
for London account in tho first hour
amounted to 330X10 shares or nearly one
half the entire business
Although the weekly statement of tho
Bank of England showed quite heavy losses
in reserves the directors did not raise tho
discount rate Tho monetary lightness in
London is due chiefly to tho liow of funds
to Scotland and Ireland and tho fact that
the rate was not raised was apparently
enough for London operators and London
prices for Americans wero strong and our
own market opened strong St Paul was
by far the most active feature of tho
market London operators bought it ex
tensively They also bought other
stocks to lesser extent Union Pacific
Burlington and Quincy and Missouri Paci
fic were other strong stocks
It is noticeable that trading has been
gradually diminishing in volumes during
the past few days This is not generolly
suppcrcd to mean that tho bull movement
is onthe wane but many persons are dis
posed to think that some definite news of a
favorable character must come out before
the market will again become as active as
it was a week ago
To days market was more active Stocks
of anthracite coal roads are rery strong
Money wa3 bid up to 0 per cent in the
afternoon
Tho bond market was active and strong
and the notable features of the market were
Reading issues Oregon Improvement 5s
and Kansas and Texas 2s which wero all
actively dealt in and advanced sharply
Wisconsin Central incomes were also strong
and advanced over 2 per cent Final prices
were generally about yesterdays

STATE RIGHTS
A Question of the Autonomy o
the State of Texas
RAISED BY GOVERNOR HOGG
The Request to Permit Mexican Troops to
Cross the River in Uniforms
Answered by Governor irogjr During tho
President Trip Throuch Texas Tho
itlpht of a Stato tv ltcgulato
it Domestic Affairs
Special to the Gazette
New York April 30 Tho Evening Pot
says editorially An interesting incident
cf tho presidents iiissigo through Texas
escaped the attention of the press agent-
who accompanied the party Shortly after
Governor Hogg joined thf partj at Palestine
a message was received bv the
from the acting secretary of war at Wash
ington iuformiug him that the Mexican g
had expressed a desire to do honor
to him and the natiou he represented by
sending a guard of tho Mexican army tc
partiUpate in the reception and p irudu at
El Paso and requested tho permission ol
the president allowing Mexican soldiers t
cross the line and cntr r the state of Texas
in uniform and wearing their side arms
Governor Hogg learned of the receipt
the message and he promptly declared thai
the president had no power to grant tho
permission asked
If any one was to say whether or not
the soldiers of another nation in time ol
peace might cross the borders into the ter
ritory of the sovereign stato ol Texas ho
said it should oo the governor of that
state
The discussion that followed ended in thu
presidents acceptance of the governor
jiosition and tho request was answered 1
the governor who of course granted tho
request
The incident is not only interesting in it
self but significant of tho restoration of tho
ancient relation between states and thu
Federal government which wero estab
lished by the constitution but was dis
turbed hi- war and left for some timo after
ward in an uncertain condition until tho
supreme court came to tho rescue of tho
constitution
Late Justice Miller laid down principles
which governed the decision of such ques
tions as that just raised in Texas when hu
said in his striking address before the law
alumni of Michigan Uhh orsity in ls
It may bo considered now as settled that
with the exception of specific provisions iu
the the new and last constitutional amend
ments for the protection of tho personal
rights of the citizens and people of tho
United States and necessary restrictions
upon the power of the states for that pur
pose with tho power of the general gov
ernment to enforce those provisions no
substantial change has been made by the
civil war The necessity of the great pow
ers conceded by the constitution originally
to the Federal government was an equal
necessity to the autonomy of the states and
their power to regulate their domestic
affairs remain as great features of our
complex form of government
SAGE OF SEGUIN
HIS OPINION ON THE RECENT AP
POINTMENTS
lie is nn Opponent of Governor Hogg
But Says Kuuiorsuf a Preconcerted
Arrangement between Jllui
Chilton are Fulte
Special to the Gazette
Sin Ajttosio Tex April SO It ha
been freely charged in all portions of tha
state that Governor Hogg made Senator
Reagan a member of die newly created
railway commission and then appointed
Horace Chilton to succeed Mr Reagan in
tho expectation that in the struggle bcfoio
the next legislature that Chilton would step
down and allow Mr Hogg a walk over for
the United States senate
Ex Governor Ireland talked upon tho ru
mored deal to day He is an opponent ol
Governor Hogg in that he is opposed to ths
railway commission and tho Alliance at
tack on corporate jiower and consequently
cannot be charged with favoring the pres
ent executive He said As for the com
mission I know nothing about it and I
know of no one who does As for the a
pointment of Chilton Ican say unquali
fiedly that it was a good one tho appoint
ment may have been a disappointment to
Terrell but that Chilton is an old time
friend and boyhood companion of Governor
Hogg and a man fitted for the position
What do you think of the rumor that
tho appointment of Chilton was to subservu
the ends of Hogg two years from nowl
Knowing Chilton as I ao now I can say
that it is false He is a man who could not
be brought to bo a party to such a scheme
1 think tho appointment was made in tho
spirit which I have already suggested
Hogg may be a candidate for tho senate
Whether or not I cannot say He is an am
bitious man but certain it is that there is
no preconcerted arrangement between him
self and his appointee
Mr Ireland has no idea who will be tha
third commissioner and Judging from his
remarks in general he thinks it is possibly
a matter of small moment whether or not
the vacancy is ever filled
