New York, Janurjr It.- The trill of tx-Aldsr-msn 0'eil (boudJer) was centiu4 todT. A lsr crswd of txpvctant spsciaUirs fii ed the roam, awaitlni; startling dnvelopmsnts that had sen promiwd Oae was in the shape of a Kiss Lou Fox, who lived at the residence f Mrs. Mc l.auKhliu, whose tentimony is rerj interestlnK. She was one of the witnesses for tse defanao, and proved a oid on. Her testimony, as hronght out bj O'Neil'a counsel, was the most important of any yet introduced. She said she reaided at Mrs. McLauuhliu's residence from Octoker. 1S8S, to June, Her testimuay was a completa denial of all that Katie Me and ex-Alermaa Waits said as U the meeting ot the comblnatioi at Mrs. Mc Laughlin's house. She sa:d they had never met there, becauae she had waited urn ths family con tinuously and without interruption, hhe was asked how it was that she opened the door, and icplii-d: "Mrs. McLaughlin asked mete, as the servant was loo atupid." Witness further said: "The girl only remained two weeks alter I came." "Did you know McLaughlin waa an alder nmnS'' "Yes, of course I AAf On reply to questions as to whether she had seen VVaite in the house she said she had not. "Then, if he stated he attended a meeting of al dermen at the house, he lied" "Indeed, he did." .Similar questions were asked as to other wit neebes and the Isdy made the same reply. She stated there were meetings of the Tammany gen vml committee at the house. , "Why did you not testify on the McCinado trial?" Witness did not answer. On cross-examination by Col. Fellows, the latter said: . , "You knew that McQuade was being tried. hy did you allow him to be tried, convicted and im prisoned without givini: information t" Objected to by counsel by defease, but the court allowed it. "1 would have testified," witnessed answered, "if I hud been sent fer, but no one came for me. In explanation she stated she had conversed with Mrs. McLaughlin about McOjiade, but did not think what she knew was of importance. Wit ness answered several question sasked her. Mrs McLaughlin was asked to take the stand. She said Lucinda Fox was her cousin, and her evidence waa the exact counterpart of that iven by Miss Fox. She said: , "My husband did not answer the bell. He was in a feeble condition. V e had frequent Tisitois. I alsays saw them." Mr. Mitchell said: ( "-tand up. Mr. O'Neil." Tl.en, turning to witness: "Did vou ever see that man? "I remember seeing him but once He came with Aidermun Clary, and 1 think it was in July, "Did you spend vour evenings at home? "Almost always'my husband was sick and 1 re mained in the house." "Could a meeting of thirteen gentleman have taken place in your parlor in May or June, lbM, without your knowledae?" "That woula be impossible. Ihere was no such meeting." ' Friends called almost every evening." Mr. Nl'ol cross-examined witness: He did not i u ceed in changing her evidence. Mrs. jicLaughlin declared she had never seen ex-Alderman W aite at her house, and he had never been there. This was in contradiction of Alderman Waite, who said when he was a member of the rail road committee of the house of aldermen he met with other members at McLaughiin's frequently Mrs. McLaughlin said the first time she ever saw Waite he was having his boots blacked on the cor ner of Sixth avenue and Thirty third street, a few weeks ago. When he was pointed out to her, she remembered Steiner, Sullivan, Caseidy and others in the Tam many general committee of of which her huB bandwas chairman. She eaid these gentlemen were at her house frequently in that year. As Mrs. McLaughlin was leaving the stand, Mr. Mitchell said: "You have committed no crime and want no im munity from the district attorney, do you?" Mrs. McLaughlin said: "That lady shook her head. Iiichard J. Sul livan, secretary of the Tammany committee, of which McLaughlin was chairman and clerk of the supreme court, testified he was at McLaughlin's house every evening from January 1, 1884, until McLaughlin went to Saratoaa in July that year. None of the 'Boodlers' were there on any of those evenings. Miss Fox invariably opened the door Sullivan waa questioned closely regarding his knowledge of the traits of Mciuade. Jus ice Barrett asked him sharply why he did not co me forward and tell hie story? Sullivan replied he did not wish to get mixed up with the affair. Then you sat by the officers of the court and heard testimony given against McQnade which you kne-v vou could contradict, and was silent? Justice Barrett's face wore a disagreeable, ugly look rb he turned In his chair from Sullivan. W. J. Cowley, who lodged in the hall bed room of the rear part, or at McLaughlin's, in 1883, was called and said he gave up his room to McLaugh lin's nurse after tha operation of February, 1884. After the nurse left, Miss Fox slept in that room. Cowley slept In the basement. He had never seen O'Neil at McLaughlin's house, hut bad seen Ful graff several times. BANK FAILURE.

Vice-president Louis A. Lienan says that securi ties are intact. News of the wreck of the Germania bank spread rapidly, and the street was thronged with anxious depositors. ( pon the door was the following notice: "This bank is closed pending application to the chancelhu for instructions," and signed "Louis A. Lineau, second vice-president." The trustees met last night, and found the hooks all written up and eecurities intact, but there was not a cent of cah.

The strike goes hope lessly on, causing an immense amonnt oi incon venience to those against whom it is directed nd no little suffering to the strikers. Its managers are now threatening to stop the running of trains on elevated railroads. Trackmen were yesterday ordered to load coal ana tne men witnoot excep tion refused to go. Should the coal order be re noinwt It Is aniri that the trackmen will strike and their example will be followed by all the other employes. Th. attention of the strike to the railroad f relirht handlers on the several railroads having dock facilities on city water tront orouxni me nuinoer aivtfrnra now ont nn to nearlv 3u,l)00. The probability is that before the day is over the railroad employes win cease worn, mo meu oa the vew York city & Northern ailroad pier, on East river, claim to have had a grievance agaiBst the company, though this is denied by the com pany. The men, through sympathy with the coal !i.ioio nrl atflatnahin longshoremen, went ont yesterday. The railroad men on the Hartford dock. East river, will be the next te eo out, and it is rumored that to day the men on lue reuusyi vania and other railroad docks will go out. The gr-'atest difficulty ia moving freight on the docks along North river, where the most of the ocean steamships are berthed. All outgoing ves sels have been detained for want of coal. The Cnnard company expect to be able to sail the Gallia to-day. Jamee E. Quinn, of the execu tive board of the Longshoremen s union, was ar retted for ronsnirin; to injure the bminew of the Old Domiaion Stoamahip company. The aclioa Is broaght in the failed Statea circuit cnrc to re cover tl'.uOO damage, lie waa relaaasd en 5,UU0 bail. Although the place of many striker hav bn filled with green haade there ts considerable diffi culty in moving freight. The Mallory line refused to take any more freight to-day, and will act re ceive any more nntil the freight nn hand ha been shipped. Some old hands returned to work. Thirty new men were put at work leading. Th steamer will sail to day on time. The Carondlet sailed yesterday with a full cargo and plenty of coal New hands are at work oa the Woodline ateamer, Sau Marco, which will sail to day if the cno he loaded in time. Mr. Ward snid tue men had struck for an advance of It) cents, and nave been given that advance. He expected to have the vfsael ready to tail on time. He could not ay that the advance would be permanent. At the pier of th Clyde line the same diffknity in mov ing freight occurred. In North river more diffi culty occurred. Losg line of empty tracks stood In front of every pier where the men had been put to work, in iraiy cases truckmen helped to load their own trucks. - New York, January 59. Suit has beea brought, not only against Quinn, but also against J J. kcKenna, L. B. l'nmam, Patrick Mi-Gee, and Thomas McGrath, who, wilt) (jninn, conatituied the executive b ard of the Longshoreman' asso ciation. Council for Quinn said noae of the ac cused would run away aad as soon as hail could be procured for them they would be delivered to the marshal. Council said the char e was brought for the purpose of Intimidating and compelling the member of the execntive board to flee from the city. SULIVAW. The Great Pugilist Knocked Out by a Surgeon.

The hill was reported to the house and passed, and the house again went into a committee on the dis trict of Columbia appropriation bill. After a brief debate the committee rose, the bill was passed and the house adjourned. WASHINGTON NOTES. NOT INSANE. Washington. January M).
