GONSFANSHIS ENEMY !
Marquis de Mores Calls the i French Minister Hard Names. Story of Political Persecution ! to Which the Marquis Was Subjected. Arrested on a Trumped-Up i Charge of Murder and Fined. The Great Wedding at Athens i —Numerous Deaths From Cholera. Paris, Oct. 21.— The Marqnia de j Mores, whose arrest and trial on a ; charge of an attempt it murder during the recent election at Toulouse resulted in the mere imposition of a fine, is far i from ont of the woods as yet in connec- i tion with the matter. M. Constans, the j mini-ter of the interior, against whom j •ill the marquis' opposition was thrown j during the election at loulouse, is intensely and bitterly disposed to- | wards him, and set-ms determined j to proceed against him as far as ever the laws of the lan will permit. The Marquis de Mores meanwhile baa lost no opportunity of loudiy complaining of the persecution to which he is being subjected. M. de Mores has returned to Paris, and to-day said: "I am a personal enemy of Minister I Constans. and have been so for the last i rive months. When in Cochin China. 1 made friends with a man who was at that time governor general of Tonquin, a certain M. Kichaud. He 'was disliked and feared by M. Constans. Yon may ! remember the mysterious circumstances which at tended M. Richatsd's sullen death, and | which gave rise to t!ie most serious i charges against M. Constans. When | the general elections ame «.n I went to Toulouse- lor the express purpose or op posing the election of M. Cons? r as member for that city. On the first day that 1 was there the police received or ders from M. Constans to arrest meat nil cost and under any pretext. In spite •>f this I continued my wt>rk of opposi tion. Jl.\D A FIGHTING aumt. "I had suth proofs of the tricks of the minister's partisans and of their inten ?!■ ns to lake theeleition.that I engaged ; ah army of 21=0 men and let it be known that 1 should a c that no nonsense took j place ;irnund the ballot boxes, or that i we would show fight. Sly men had iii- | struftions from me to rush the whole j concern out of the window of the voting j room oii the Mignt'-st signs of trickery. ; M.'Constans: on the other LthrouHh I his agents, engaged KOO ruffians, in- i clutiing many moudiards or police §piesJ These were paid to interrupt my meet ings, and thus to give on the first op portunity a pretext for having me ar rested. Saturday, Oct. 5, we had or ganized gnat meetings in om* of the public halls of the town. Ml Constans had been invited to atu-iid. aiM we had I promised to see. that lie should be re spt-cted. lie did not ••<tu:e. however. but about !> o'clock, jurt as I was ail «!rc->ii!Lr the meeting; Mi Constans' gang came along outside and beza.il beating "La Gemrale." which is the signal <»t attack. At the same time these fellows commenced an attack on our, meeting j roomi The windows were smashed j with -ticks, and U>e ri-..t was so srr«-at j rh:;t it became impossible to continue ; the meeting. I therefore came out on the street! accompanied by my men. who were armed with sticks." At the door I s-aw that the crowd of M. Cou -tauV ruiiians was so menacing that with the object of .showing them that 1 intended to stand no non sense, I drew a revolver and walked <-ut with it in my Hand. 1 had not gone three paoes beiore lour iut n sprang on me and arrested rue. One <>£ these men ! was in police uniform. I therefore made no resistance, but asked the constable why I was arrested. He replied that it was because 1 had drawn my revolver. Just then one <>i the crowd lunged at tue with a spike. He missed me, how ever: and wounded one of the i our tel- j lows who were hauiins me off. KIGOIJ OF inn LAW. "1 was taKen oil' to prison, and in di rect violation of the law, which ordains that during election time the tribunes shall be permanently in session, was i kept in jail for two 'lays, bonday 1 in- j sisted on being told on what charge 1 was being held. i was told that it was ova cliarge ot" •iiig an accomplice in an attempt of willful murder against a police agent— a charge which, in France, might entail the penalty t>f death. It since has come to my knowledge that that same bunday the prefect for the department *ent for the magistrate who was to try ■ *y case, ann told him that if he did not treat Hit- to all the rigors of toe law. be ■Tould md the risk of getting meed Tom his post. The magistrate in 4<trs- i lon dared the prefect to make that i Statement before witnesses, and added hej should act ;isl;e thought just, and not otherwise. When mv trial | fame oil" a day or two ago the charge of attempted murder was abandoned, i M. Constans. having been sue- [ ee^iul in netting elected, couid afford to be merciful. The. oilier charge, how ever, was vigoreusly supported by a number of false witnesses who lied in a tneful manner. Their case, how ever, was too weak, ami the trial re sulted in my being fined SIJO." The correspondent hereupon re marked: "Although you are a personal tMiemy of M. Constant yet you will admit that he is a strong man?'' cr CON - ■•: •- ELECTED ny fkaud. "XI ConsUins is a strong man." said the marquis, "but he is utterly unscru pulous, lie is the paid agent of a num ber of big hankers who exploit, France, and he is tbe evil spirit or the Place de la Bourse. His election was secured by the most fraudulent maneuvers. Forged and false voting tickets were distributed by the wholesale, and 1 have in my pus >e>jiGii not ess than ■ _: '■ such tickets-. which were seized by mv agents in one. section atone. It was one of the most udaioiu jubs ever area. In America they would not have stood >ueh an election for three hours, How long they will stand this violation of vutiuir liberty here i should not like to say. Bat lam afraid that before long there will be bloodshed In France." "And danger?" asked the corre spondent. "Finished completely finished." said the marquis. "He only represents an idea— personality is nothing. The idea survives, thougn the man has gone under. It is the wish of many thou sands, indeed of the majority of those who voted for the general's candidates. to save the republic, and to prevent its being any longer the milch cow of a few bankers and of their tools. We want to decentral ize the government in France, which isto-dav as Napoleon 1 made it, with a mere republican it for show. As for Isoulange , his rote Is finished. He can never rise again. That was an other of M. Constans' master strokes. He bribed Mme. Bunemaine, Boulan ger's female companion, to use her in fluence with her weak general and get him to commit a series of blunders be ginning with his flight to Belgium and ending with his vojage to Jersey, all of which have so disgusted his former aupixjrters." Those, are the accusatiooa which the Marquis de Mores is freely and publicly making througn France against Minister Constaiis. The latter is grvaily provoked tuereby. and it is reported that he is takingsteps to set aside tne recent trial of M. de Mores, and to obtain a new hearing of the cast*, with a view to ob taining a heavier sentence agaiust the UMtfQUiS. THE WEDDING AT ATHENS Taking Up the Attention of Roy alty Generally. Loxdox, Oct. 21.— The London news papers, as well as those on the conti nent, are entirely engrossed with th? coming royal wedding at Athens. Column upon column is devoted to the subject.

TALK MANY MILES. The Longest leiephone Circuit Across the Water. LoHDOS, Oct. 21.— What is un doubtedly the longest telephone cir cuir on the Continent was opened to the public yesterday. The line is from Vienna, in Austria, to Leipsic, and every word couid be perfectly under stood and the voice recognized without ; difficulty. The distance between the ! two cities by rail is something less tnan j 300 miles, but the telephone wire*, in ! stead of being carried along the routes I of the railways, where the noise of | passing trains was found to interfere , materially with the working of the I long-distance instruments, are strung : along the highways, where the results are found to be much better, and the i ] actual distance on these routes is nearly i ;150 miles. A strange fact has been | noticed in connection with this route. While the speaker at Vienna is heard with remarkable clearness and accuracy : at Leipsic and at all points along the ■ route, as at Prague and Dresden, a i speaker at either of these points is heard with much more difficulty at ; | Vienna. The electricians of the com pany ire as yet unable to furnish a , satisfactory "explanation of this phe : nomenon. " Why sounds traveling from east to west should lie clear a id dis tinct, while those traveling in tiie other direction are more or less blurred, re mains a puzzle. Kins Luis' Body. Lisbon, Oct. 21.— body of the late King Luis was conveyed to Beleni I to-day. The members of the rovai : family, the cabin, ministers and a mil i itary escort, consisting of a regiment of i cavalry, accompanied the body.

It Will Extend From Clew Bay to Greenly Island. Ottawa. Ontario. Oct. 21.— R. R. \ Dobell. of Quebec, has been here inter- j ; viewing members of the government in I | connection with the Canada Atlantic Cable company, of which he is the pro i jector. He reports that every arrange ! ment so far necessary has bet- per ! fected and that the cable is a solid fact. Work will be commenced next year and • will be pushed forward vigorously. The capital expenditure of the company is estimated at $1,000,000. One of the prin cipal manufacturing companies of Lon- I don has tendered to provide* lay and I guarantee a cable of the most approved i type f<>r f1.000.000. The company's lilies will thus cost one-fifth less than j any ot the Anglo- American cables, one qnairter less than the Direct United Mutes. Western Union, and Compagnie I Francaise lines, and one-ouarier less than that of the Commercial company's ■ connection. The Canada Atlantic cable ! will extend from near Clew bar, in Ire land, to Greenly island, in the straits of ■ Bell Isle. The cable will be l.'.m miles j lone. Dangers to be met with from ice bergs grounding in this northern region are not reared. The object in having the cable laid so far north is that it will j be absolutely free from risks during rt pairs of other cables, and can be more j easily raised when required. The Can- ' | ada Atlantic line will be laid 150 miles j north of any of these. — » BOTH WKBK DKOWNKD. Fatal Result of a Quarrel in a Boar. Chicago. Oct. 2L— Benjamin F.Nnn nelly's corpse, with the throat slit from i ear to ear. was found floating in the j Chicago river to-uay. Two weeks ago he went on a spree with John Ranks. whose dead body was fished out of the river that night by a bridge tender. There seems to be no doubt that they ! engaged in a drunken quarrel on the i i docks, that Ranks knifed Nunnelly, I and that the latter in his death struggle ■ pulled Ranks into the river and j drowned him. The death of the two j men together is a remarkable sequel to i the r lives, which were strangely alike. i Each of the men was born in good cir- c umstances. and destroyed a bright j i prospect by overindulgence in strong i ; <innk. Each had wealtny relatives and j j friends who were ready at any time to i extend the helping hand. Nunnelly ; was married, but his wife got a divorce ; and is now living in New Orleans.

THE SAIXT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: TUESDAY MOEXING, OCTOBER 22, 1-39. MONEY ISPLENTIFUL. Secretary Windom Sees No Indication of Stringency in Uncle Sam's Boodle. The Predicted Bond Corner Does Not Loom to Any Conspicuous Extent. Banks Have the Surplus, and Are Feeling Quite Easy, Thank You. No Pror pacts of a Tight Mar ket or a Big" Demand for Money. New York. Oct. 21.— Washing ton correspondent of the Times yester day hod au interview with Secretary Windom in regard to the money mar ket, lie was asked whether he feared a stringency or knew of a corner in the bond market, arranged to force the treasury to raise the prices for bonds. "1 can see no indications of a strin gent money market." replied the secre tary. "As" far as I can learn, there is no abnormal demand for money; noth ing more than what there is usually at this time of the year. The interior has made but the customary demand on New York, but crops have been pretty »yell moved, and money appears to be reasonably plentiful." "Can you detect any sign of a bond corner?" Have you any information as to whether the bonds or a majority of them are in the hands of a few people, or are they pretty well scattered?" "I have heard nothing to lead me to believe that there is a syndicate at tempting to get control of the bonds. I believe that the registered bonds are pretty well scattered. There are -oine 40.000 holders of this class. The un registered bonds, of course, we cannot tell anything about. Some of the form er bonds may have been transferred of late by their original holders, and the treasury department would not neces sarily know anything auout that, but I have* not heard that such transfers have been made, or that bonds are being ab sorbed by a tew people." "If money were tight and commanded heavy interest, would not the holders ot bonds be more anxious to sell than they are now?" "That would naturally seem to be so. ■but the purchases have not been small by any means. They are about what they "have been for some little time back. I cannot give you the exact figures. as I have not been Mining the mail during the last few days, and As sistant Secretary Batcheller has acted as secretary wliiie 1 have been busy on my report, but I believe that we pur chased last week about 55.000.000 worth of bonds. The money we are disbursing in the purchase of bonds is about equal to the daily surplus -that is, to the ex cess of revenues over disbursements." "Suppose there were danger of astrin gent market, would you feel justified in paying more tor bonds than you are at the present time?" "i should not like to answer that ques tion oil-hand, and I should want to know the extent of the danger before 1 should act. The surplus, however, in any ease. is in the hands of the people at pres ent." "In what way?"' "By being distributed among the na tional bants. Toe policy inaugurated by the last administration in this re spect has not been disturbed as yet." '•But the banks are naturally not '. a .ins: this money as fxeeiy as they would if it were notsucject to call." "That need not cause them any an prehension." said the secretary, "as the deposits are covered by bonds, and if they are not at>le to return the money when the demand is made on them for it. it is easy enough for them to sell their bonds. " "But at a loss, probably?" '■No. 1 think not. 1 do not believe that the majority paid the top prices for the bond.-, and the loss would not. in any event, he greater now than it would be if the bonds were held until ma turity." "Then you see nothing in the present outlook to cause any alarm?" "I do not: and. unless something un foreseen arises, there are no indications to point to a tight money market or an excessive demand for money, which cannot be readily supplied." TYPHOID AT YALE. lint There Is Nothing to Justify Sensational Stories. New Haves, Conn., Oct. 21.— There is notning in connection with the two deaths from typhoid fever at Yale to justify the sensational stories of a threatened epidemic. Dr. Seaver, the college physic says the health of the students is fully as good as usual In the fall of the year. There have been four cases of typhoid fever. Two have proved ratal", llupert Doty Brown, of New York, died last week, and Thomas J. Roberts, of Scranton. Pa., died yes terday. The two students now ill with the fever are Mark Borden. of Chicago, and E. P. Drew, of Vermont. Borden rooms away from the college, lie 13 quite ill. There is a chance of his re covery. Drew is convalescent. Arthur B. Kussell. of South Norwalk. and S. S. Hatching, of Danielsonville. both suf fering from malaria, have been sent home, as the college physician thinks their recovery may be hastened there by. These are the only cases at illness of consequence among the students, and no two of them have been located in the same dormitory. WATER MKN CO-OPERATE. Plan for a Temperance Union of Fire states. Kaxsas City, Oct. 21.— Jam^s A. Troutman. presided! of the Kansas State Temperance union. has sub mitted a plan to the presidents of the temperance unions of North and South Dakota, lowa and Nebraska for the formation of a central organization. His plan, as outlined in his letter, is as follows: The. success of prohibition next year in Nebraska closes the gap and cements five imperial states lying side by side in a united crusade against the liquor traffic. There ought to be a strong cen tral organization, embracing these five states, and I suggest that a convention be called at Omaha, about the first of Januaiy, for the purpose of forming such an organization. Limit the or ganization at first to these five states, adding adjacent states whenever they submit the question of prohibition. Mr. Troutman to-day received replies from C. F. Atkinson, president of the NebrasKa association, and W. W. Barnes, president of the South Dakota association, indorsing the plan and promising their co-operation. Foraker Very 111. Columbus, <•-. Oct. 21.— Gov. For tker*9 condition is still a matter of seri ous apprehension to his friends, al though he is reported as convalescing.. To-day bis improvement was not so marked as yesterday, and it's reasona bly certain that the governor will not be able to rill any of ins appointments for tills week, and by some it is considered doubtful if he will be able to speak again during the campaign. To-night the governor is reported as resting easily, but there is not much improve ment in his condition. -^B" Have a firing to Them. New Y<i:k.

As the steamer Henrietta was coming up the lake early yesterday morning a flock of probably seventy-five wild geese rose from the lake about 100 yards ahead and made direct for the steamer, attracted by her electric liirht. ■' The Henrietta was under full headway, and the impact of the birds against the pilot house, smoke stacks and chains was such that the geese fell stunned or disabled all over the boat, fore and aft. Six of them wen; captured, and in the darkness and excitement th;- remainder floundered and flopped themselves over board into the lake. Jimmy Carter, the colored janitor of the armory, an indispensable part of Company X's camp equipment and uni versally known and liked in Stillwater, met with an accident yesterday that j will make it impossible for him to earn i his livelihood for some time.

The city has been well canvassed for the sale "of tickets to this evening's benefit performance for the King's Daughters ami Knights of Pythias, and the lower part of the house is already pretty well sold.

William Washington, an ebonv-hued individual, who was attired in a stylish silk hat and a long linen duster, ap peared before Judge Emery in the mu nicipal court yesterday. "William, you are charged with dis orderly conduct. What have you to say?" asked the court. "Not guilty, sah," answered William, displaying two rows of perfect teeth. His counsel asked for a postponement until to-day, which was granted. Will iam was employed as a "barker" in front of a shoe store on Henuepin ave nue, and he was extolling the excellent quality of his employer's goods when a policeman run him in. Pawnbroker Detective Mallon yester day had Charles D. Kaymer and Uria A.

Mr. Kaymer told the court that the purchase was so small that he had not thought it neces sary to make the report.

Officer stavilo testified that about 1 o'clock Sunday he went into a restaur ant on Washington avenue south and MitcheU insulted him. Under cross-ex amination he admitted that he was very angry and struck Mitchell twice with his list. Mitchell testified that the offi cer had struck him without any provo cation and then locked him up. ■•Why did you strike him?" asked Judge Emery of the policeman. "He was talking about me and I was very angry," was the reply. "In this case you went entirely too far. You have no right to strike a pris oner unless it is absolutely necessary." Turning io Mitchell, the judge contin ued: "Officer Stavilo don't generally overdraw things. I shan't impose any fine on you this time, as there is a doubt, and the law gives you the benefit of the doubt, you are discharged."
