M THE GMT CAPITAL The Next Lord Mayor of London Interviewed. now London Is Governed Power ; I tho Slnnlclpal Boards The Anclon.1 Guilds Etc. New YonK, Juno 12. Thcro nrrivod eti the Scrvia last week, a hale and hearty looking, English gentleman. This was Mr. Charles Hadloy, who is at present Alderman of tho Castlehaynard ward, London, but who, on tho 20th of September next, will becomo Lord Mnyor of London. Interviewed by a reporter, ho v furnished tho following interesting information in regard to tho great corporation: " Of course," said tho Alderman, with a smile, in responso to a question, " wo' are entitled I to boast of tho antiquity of our Corporation. It is clalmod by somo that it is a thousand years of ago. It has certainly been eijiht hundred years in existence. Various charters havo been grnntcd from J time to timo, and privileges conferred upon tho Corporation by succeeding rulers, EJ ward 111., for instance, gavo and confirmed many charters to tho city which arc still in forco, and under theso ohartcrs and tho rights and privileges conferred oven a brief history of which would" fill your paper the Corporation of London has been onablod to carry out successively and successfully all tho great improvements which made the city what it is to-day." "How is London governod?" asked the reporter. "The government of the city," responded tho Aldermen, " is mainly in tho hands ol the Lord Mayor, as tho Chiof Magistrate, tho Aldermen in number, elected from wards,) who are magistrates of the city; Commissioners of the High Court and a Common Council consisting of 206 members, who are elected annually." The Aldermen are magistrates of the city of London, administering justice in tho different courts, and aro commissioners 'with Her Majesty's judges the Lord Mayor tfajjfcfttng first in tho High Court of Jurisprudence. No Judge of tho realm can render a decision unload an Alderman bo prosont. It is necessary thai two Aldermen shall bo presont at all times during the sessions of tho Court of Common Council. If only one Alderman should be present no business o uld be transacted. In tho Court of Aldermen thirteen members, including tho Lord Mayor, must be present boforo any business can be done. No Alderman can servo the oflico of Lord Mayor until he has served tho ollico of tho Sheriff of London and Middlesex. I might say here, speaking of tho Sheriifs, that in. every 'other county in England tlioy are elected or ' pricked ' by tho Lord Chancellor, but the citizens of London some three hundred years ago, by tho payment of a sum of money, sccurod the light to nominate and elect their own Shprills." The Aldermen havo control of the police, and of the streets, sewers and water service jointly with tho Common Council. The mombors of the Court 'of Aldermen are ex officio governors of all tho tho hospitals. Tho government of tho ho.phals is under thoir control. We hnvo a'.so charge of tho City School, in which from 1,200 to 1,G00 children aro educated. The National School Board attends to tho other schools. We grant licenses to all tho Stock Exchanges and other brokers. No broker can transact business fn the city unless licensed by the Court of Aldermen. Then tho recorder of London, who is tho highest officer of tho corporation, a judge of the roalm, and who is entitled to a seat in Parliament, is elected by the Aldermon alone. Tho Common Sergeant, who domes next in rank, is eleoted by the, Aldermen and the Court of Common 'Council. Putting it la a gqneral way, the legislative body for the city comprises the Court of Aldermen and the Court of Common Council They meet together weekly and discuss nnd carry out all the legislation needed for the Government of tho city." "And the Lord Mayor how is he chosen 7" Ho is elected by tho livery of tho city in Common Hall. None but the livery can vote for him." ' "What is, or who are, the ' livery? " " The livery consists of members of the various guilds of the city, who havo privileges granted to them from time immemorial. There are about seventy-two of these guilds still existing in London. In the early history of the city they represented a trade, but now they are honorary rather than actual. It is doomed an honor to be eleoted a member of a guild, and although they go by tho names of the difTerenHrados, it is not necessary that tho members should ever havo had the least knowledge of tho trade which thoir guildB represent. For instance, I have served master for two years of the 'Brodcrers,' or Embroiderers Guild, and havo just been elected for a third term, but I don't know anything at all about embroidery." "Docs tho Livery both nominate and elect the Lord Mayor." " Tho office is a sort of a rotary one. On the 28th of June in each year the namcB of tho Alderman who have not served in the office of the Lord Mayor nre submitted to the livory assembled in Common Hall. The livory return to tho Court of Aldermen the names of the two senior juniors for election to tho office of Lord Mayor. Tho Aldermen then choose one of them almost invariably the first senior of the juniors and at onee report their choice to the livery. On the 8th of the following November the Lord Mayor takes his office. On that day all the principal officers of the corporation surrender their offices into his hands, but he invariahly continues them in office. For instance, Benjamin Soott,. Chamberlain of the elty, has for upward of quarter ef a century resigned Tall office onee a year and been reappointed. The day following the 0th of November fjLtfee.memorable jay of the 'Lord Mayor's Show,' when, at the'head of a procession, he proceeds to Westminster. For the last 800 or 400 years the Lord Mayor's procession has gono to Westminster to reccivo the approval of tho ruling monarch of tho selection of the citizens. This year, however, owing to the romovnl of tho high courts of law from Westminster to tho now courts situated just outside of tho city boundary, tho courso of the time-honored procession will probably bo changed, but all the pomp avd oeromouy will bo preserved. After having been swoin in tho now Lord Major receives Her Majesty's Ministers nt a banquet. " PKOFESSOIl SULLIVAN. I7io IMijivllNt (tinrrclH Willi III Wife, mid Knocks Her Out In One Itoimil. Boston, Juno 12. Profossor John L. Sullivan, the champion pugilist, during tho fow months, has had moro money than East o know what to do with moro than ho evor had before. As n consequonco he has been lionized by everybody from tho bruiser and most any rato gambler to tho aristocratic resident of Bcncon Hill Mid tho Unck Hay. Tho Professor has jpent money like a princo, nnd, as Is tho custom with princes who spend money in that way, ho has a host of friends who fob lowed close at h n heels and never allowed him to iniss an opportunity to wasto a dollar. Tho result of this Is that ho had a good time, nnd has been moro or less under the influence of liquor while having it. Tho other night ho wound up an expensive epree, in which champagne formed a largo clement, by going homo in a decidodly ugly framo of mind. When Professor Sullivan is ugly ho is a dangerous man and his conduct is not always regulated by that chivalry and gallantry which should characterize tho strong and tho brave, and bo it is the further ono keeps away from him the better it is, whether ono be a man or a woman. Mrs. Sullivan is a lady of great beauty and clognnco of manner, dresses with the richness nnd taste that hecumcth the wife of a pet professor in this great center of ethical culturcf and of intelligence, too. Sho was, however, unacquainted with somo of his recently developed peculiarities. So when ho stnggered tinto tho room sho began to remonstrate. This nngored him, and be begun to abuse her-In Inn gunge which was forcible, but extremely shocking. Mrs. Sullivan did not relish this treatment and was not accustomed to.it, nnd so informed her husband. Ho appeared unable to appreciate tho fact, however, and becoming more angry proceeded to maintain his reputation by squaring off and knocking her out in one round. This report is mado up from tho statement of the vanquished part)', and is as she told the talo to the Court when she obtained a warrant for tho professor's arrest. It is understood that the professor is now at a private retreat a few miles from Providence, Rhode Jsland. It is also understood two oiucors laftvthitcity last evening to bring him back. It is sad to romark that Professor Sullivan is on probation now for a similar offense, and it is more than likely it will go hard with him if he is brought into Court again. Piiovidence, It. I..

II Expect to Be In Control of Ilia Tho Xow York Theaters Again This Week. New York, Juno 12. Mr. J. II. Haverly expects to resume tho oontrol of his theaters in .Now York and Brooklyn by .tho middle of tho week. His friend, Mr. Chas. H. McConuell, of Chicago, has" arrived hero, and a conference was held in tho Fifth Avenue Hotel, in which Mr. Haverly, Mr. McConnell and their respective Bel participated. No plan for extricating Mr. ITavorly from his financial difficulties was definitely, adopted, but tho preliminary stops to bring about that result were agreed to. Mr. McConnell said to a reporter: " I have come on here to reinstate Mr. Haverly in the control of his theaters, and I mean to do bo. I am not his partner, and nevor have been. Ho owes me a good deal of money, but I'm not afraid that I shall lose it. I have no doubt that wo shall be ablo to lift all theso attachments against his property. Tho claim of the American Exchange National Bank will bo easily Bettled, for I am on most of that paper. I shall have that fixed. I don't think that we shall have any trouble with the claims of Shook and Collier. I am told that tho Gilmoro and Colville suit for 13,000 is a friondly action. If that is so we can easily settle it. It looks to mo, however, liko an attempt to get a theater cheap. But if thoy get it they will havo to bid moro than S1,000 for it." Mr. McConnell denied that Mr. Haverly intended to abandon the theatrical business. His loase of the Fourteenth Street Theater had six years to run, and, he would be thore for that time in any ovent, and perhaps might get a better ono.

Eating, Drinking and Smoking In the Water by the Champion Swimmer of (ho World. New Yokic, June 11. Mr. Willid Beck-with, the ohampion lwimmor of the world, and his sister, Miss Agnos, who holds the female championship of the samo planet, both of whom arrived from England a fow days ago, gavo an exhibition of their art In the Natatorium, Nos. 2 and 4 East and their performances were really wonderfully. Willie Bcckwith is n short and stout young man, 25 years of ag;e and ho scorns as much at home in tbo water as a fish. He wont under water last evoning and devoured two sponges cakes without coming to the surface, and afterward drank a bottle of milk underneath tho waves and thon smoked a pipe under water, with tho bowl above. In fact, it would seem that ho might as woll stay under altogether, for if a man can eat, drink, and smoke under water during the hot weather New York is at present oxperionoing, it is folly to eomo above tho surfaco to bo roasted. It took two minutes to oat tho cakes, one minuto and a half to sinoko the pipe, and the milkvwas consumed in ono minute. Mr. Beokwith has a reoord, howovor, of staying under water three minutes. His sifter's exhibition Boemed' even moro wonderful than his own, and as, unlike most female performers, Miss Bcckwith U pretty, it was more interesting. She was attired in flesh tights, and a very dccollotto bodico. She swam on her chest, feet first, propelling horsolf with her hands; she dressed in a sailor's suit over hor tights, and took it off on the surface of the water; sho swam with a small hoop and passed her body through it at each stioke ; she walked in the water with her hands above her her head, sho waltzed in the aqueous fluid, nnd sho swam with her hands and legs tlod. Willie Bcckwith gave an exhibition of the " side stioko," swimming on his side and using both arms, by which his father held the championship of England ten years; and ho also swain with the "overhand stroke," by which ho hns won all ills races in England, reaching over his head whilo lying on his side, and moving with great velocity. Ho swims with all his body and most of his head under water. Miss Bcckwith uses the " chest stroke," striking out both aims simultaneously, and holds her head high above tho water, and is as graceful and as lithe as a mormaid. Mr. Bcckwith swam undor tho water, holding ono log abovo tho Burfaco that he might breathe through his foot, and ho went underneath and took off a sailor suit in which ho was nttirod over his tights before coming to tho top. His Bister gave an exhibition, designated on tho programme, as " the prayer," in which sho swam with her foet, holding her clasped hands above her head. This stylo of swimming is recommended for steamboat collisions and ocean wrecks, ns it gives ono an opportunity to pray for help while he or she 'paddles shore fltrd. Another exhibition was that of the " Christian Martyr," after tho picture of that .name, in which a maiden, clothed in a halo, is floating to her doom with her hands angelically clasped on her bosom. This was imitated to perfection by Miss Beokwith, who was towed about the tank by her brother to make the illustration more realistic. The exhibition closod with illustrations by the two of bad swimming and diving, and tho easiest method of saving life. Mr. Beokwith also imitated a porpoise with great offect, and Miss Beokwith personated a propellor to the lifo. Tho two will give exhibitions throughout tho country, and may deoido to givo lessons in swimming. Memphis, Te.v.v., June 12. A telegram just received from Fulton Station, Ky., states that in a riot at that place last night two men, Will Oglos and a negro, wero killed and four men wero dangerously wounded. Tho marshal of tho placo attempted to arrest OgloB for drunkouess, and boing resisted a battlo ensued with tho abovo result. A nogro working on tho N. 0. & N. E. Railroad, at or near Easfobutche, grossly insulted a lady. Sho told her husband and ho, with sovcral other white men, went to the camp and ohastised the negro. This incensed tho nogro laborers, and about sixty of them attacked tho white men arid compelled them to rctroat, firing upon tho mob. Ono of the white men was oaptured and beateu to doa,th. A Supposed Murderer Nhot. Dxcatuk, Ala., Juno 12. Mr, Madison Goodgamc, while on his way homo from Clinton, Sunday afternoon, was shot and killed by a party in ambush.

CROOK AND THE HOSTILES Tho Fl'sst Official Keport or the Tight and Capture of the Indians. Tucson, A. T., June 12. A courier ar. rived nt Tombstono Inst night from Crook's headquarters, at Silver Creek, Arizona bringing the first official information of Crook's expedition. It left Amcricnn soil on tho 3d of Mny, marching 200 miles , southeast from San Bnrnardino. on tho boundary line of Chihuahua and Sonora, following tho trail of tho hostiles. Crook was gtiidod by tho Apache, who was captured near San Carlos,' just previous to tho expedition leaving. At a point about 200 miles south of the line the command crossed flic Sierra Ncvndas range, advanced fifty miles over an Indescribably rough trail, eight mules being killed by falling over piccipices, and pressed on without delay. The men wero roudoio I ne irly barefooted by sharp rocks. After fourteen days hard inarching, night and day, the Indian camps of Chato and Bonito were discovered in tho henrt of the Sierra Maihcs in nn almost linpregnnble position. Tho Apaches did not dream of an attack for tho entrance to the stronghold wns next to impossible and the warriors were principally out on n raid under Juh, only bucks' being in the camp with the women and children. The San Carlos scouts, under Cnptnln Crawford and Lieutenants At wood and Mackey, with Al. Sebree, Mcintosh and Michoy Free, chiofs of tho scouts, surrounded the camp before the hostiles wore awaro of their proximity, and advanced from different points and were noar before they wcie discovered. The scouts soeretod themselves behind rocks and commonced firing upon tho camp, creating a perfect panic. A number succeeded in oscaping, though nearly all surrendered. Seven wero found dead in camp. Five Moxican women and a little girl wero rocaptured. Thoy wero taken from Carmen and Chihuahua, and aro now with Crook "in good hoalth. Everything in camp was burned or carried off by the acoufs. Among the property captured were 100 ponies nnd mules, forty being loaded with plunder, baddies, cirdles, clothes, gold and silver watches, and several thousand dollars in gold, silver and greenbacks, showing that they had been very successful in their raids. After the fight most of those who escaped came in. Altogether 383 prisoners wero taken. Tho chiefs captured wero Chato, Bonito, , Geronimo, Nnchoz, Loco and Nana. Tho two latter were long reported dead. The Tho chiofs say an American boy, six years old, captured a month ago in New Mexico, is with the squaws in the mountains. H is, no doubt, Charlie McComas. Runners were sent out, nnd he is expected in hourly. After the fight, tho command, with the prisoners, marched leisurely back to the American suil, and the entire command, with the prisoners, are now encamped on Silver Creek, about sixty miles south ol Tombstone. Not ono of Crook's command wns lost during the campaign. The courier states that the reason why Crook remains at Silver Creek is thnt he is awaiting news from the Secretary of War as to what disposition to make of the Indians, as Wilcox, agent at S.m Carlos, refused to receive them, and that he will g back to tho Sierra Madres after the rest of the hostiles it thoy do not come. In conversation with a courier he stated that he had plenty of money. Quite a number of buqks had silver stars and other ornaments beaten out of Mexican dollars on thoir head-gear, and several of them American double eagles made into ncoklnces, A rough estimate of the amonnt of wealtk among them is fully 5,000, and probably more. A NARROW ESCAPE. An Attorney at Tcrro Ilauto, Ind., Fires at Congressman Lamb, Who Saves Hlo Life by Dodging His Head. Terrb Hadte, Ind., June 2. S. C. Davis, a prominent member of the Bar of this city, of tho firm of Davis & Davis, attempted to kill Hon. John E. Lamb, Congressman from this city, in this oity about four o'olook this afternoon. Tbo affair took place at tho foot of tho stairs leading to Lamb's office, on Wall street, and grew out of feeling in an important case in which tho attorneys wore opposing counsel. Davis was standing at the' foot of the stairs with Edward Pugh, a young lawyer, and H. G. Thompson, whon Lamb crossed from the opposite side of tho street ,to address them Davis said: " Don't you spoak to me.' Lamb roplied, "Yes, I will, and I want, to talk to you." Davis answered, " No you won't speak to mo, you s n of a b , or I'll kill you, ' at the samo time pulling a revolver. Lamb had a roll of 'papers in ono hand and a oano injtho right. Ho threw up his right arm in an attempt to knock off. the revolver, and Pugh caught Davis' cuffjf -. but could not pre&nt him from shooting; He pointed the rovolvor directly at Lamb, who attempted to seize it, and, falling, ducked his head just as Davis fired. This action saved his life, and ho ran into , Brown's dry goods store, where Davis made, no attempt to follow. The ball from the revolver passed through the sido of a passsing wagon and struck the foot of Josiah Hioklin, a Sugar Creek farm or, inflicting a painful, but not dangerous, wound. Davla immediately surrendered himself to tho authorities, but Lamb refused to file an 'against him, and ho was reloased. News of tho shooting spread rapidly and a orowd had gathered at the scene, The report was carried to 'the Circuit Court, whioh immediately adjourned. Something of tho kind has been expected for several days past, as the feeling tho men has boon intensified by talc- bearers. It oamo to the ears of Davis that Lamb was carrying a loaded cane for, tho purpose of attaoking him, and it is, said that tho latter was waiting on purpose U meet him. Davis declines to glyo any statement to tho papers. A j.i &v mx.. - -,
