Madrid, June 21.—There are rumors
current here today that the Cortes may

event it is thought the Premier, Senor
Sagusta, will be compelled to submit to
the Queen Regent a question oi confi

It is possible, therefore, that Senor Sa

a National Government, pledged to the
most energetic course, will succeed his
Ministry.
The Republican's have again vainly
tried to induce Senor Emilio Castelar to
return to lead the Republican party.
Castelar says his health is bad, ana that
he is too ofd for the work, but he ex

_'
The case of Thomas S. Clark, churgrtrl
with aiding and abetting William -V.
Boggs in misapplying funds of tlie First
National Bank of Dover was resumed in
the United States District Court yester
day morning.
Ihe defense closed its case after court
had been in session about an hour and
United States District Attorney Lewis C.
Vandegrift called a number of witnesses
in rebuttal.
Among these were a liuinoer of promi
nent men from the home of the defen
dant at Dover and they were unanimous
in their opinion as to one thing, and that
was that tlie reputation of Thomas S.
C lark for veracity was bad.
Rev. Alfred Smith, pastor of Weslcv
M. E. Church of Dover, of which Mr.
Clark is a member, was also a witness in
, this instance and he asserted that tlie
reputation of Clark in the community
fur peace and good order was bad. He j
was cross-examined by .Mr. Biggs, conn- 1
sel for the defense, and asked if be would I
believe ( lai k on oath. Hie gentleman !
was evidently surprised when Dr. i
bimtli emphatically asseited that lie
would not. [
In tlie afternoon William X. Boggs |

Mr. vandegrift exhibited a letter
which Ford said he wrote. When Mr.
Vandegrift asked him to whom it was
written Mr. Biggs examined it. He then
b »ndcd it back.to the witness. Mr.
Vandegntt offered the letter in evidence.

Mr. Biggs remarked that the district

I Mr. Vandegrift then asked the wit
ness to whom the letter was written.
"To William N. Boggs," witness re
plied.
JJr. Vandegrift withdrew the letter,
but said he would offer it later.
I Mr. Biggs next placed ' Thomas S.
Oldrk, the defendant, uptin the stand.
Mr. Biggs asked him: "Mr. Clark, you
are charged in this indictment with hav
ing aided and abetted William N. Boggs
to abstract certain funds of the First
National Bank of Dover, by giving two
checks for $250 to K. B. Cuthbert« Co.,
dated May 8th and 13th, 1890, respec
tively. l'lease state in your own way
what you have to sav about the alleged
checks."
Mr. Vandegrift objected. Before rul
ing on the objection the court consulted
the law on the subject. The court over
ruled the objection. Clark signifying
his desire to testify.
Clark testified to buying 100 shares of
Bay S.ate (.as at the time specified and
during the week he bought 200 more
shares, making 300 shares bought and
200 sold. Two checks for $250 were
When the first check came in he said
Boggs told him the check was there and
there were no funds to meet it. Boggs,
lie alleged, told him lie would pay both
checks if the account should be trails
ferred to him, the second check not hav
ing been honored.
He transferred the stock to Boggs,
who, on the following day gave him tie
checks, with bale marks across
them. In reply to Mr. Biggs, lie said
there was no understanding that any
profit was to go to him. Witness ex
amtned a telegram, which he said he re
ceived from the First National Bank of
Dover. _
Mr. Vandegrift objected to the tele
gram, not knowing who gave it to Clark
or what bearing it Imd on the case.
Mr. Biggs said it was part of the trails
action and was given to him by the
First National Bank. Tlie objection was
sustained.
In reply to another question, Clark
said he got it from W. N. Boggs of the
First National Bank and it was in con-,
nection witli a draftwhich he had given
to pay tlie fi.st check.
Mr. Vandegrift asked witness whether
the draft was given to the First National
Bank.
Mr. Vandegrift objected, saying that
as the dratt was said to be protested tlie
best evidence would be the draft itself.
Witness said, however, that lie could
not find tlie draft.
The court sustained Mr. Vandegrift's
objection to the telegram.
In reply to a quesiioii bv Mr. Biggs,
witness said the draft in payment for the
first clii-ck, which was either in favor
of the First National Bank or W. N.
Boggs, raine back either protested or not
paid,
' In regard to the two checks for $50
given to Joseph McDaniel, witness said
be paid belli of the checks. Concerning
the Ilarrv McDaniel check, lie said he
had purchased land in Easton, Pi. A
deed came Bv Adams Express and lie
paid tne check for $100, which had been
ordered collected C. O. D.
