Marquis de Mores Calls the i
French Minister Hard
Story of Political Persecution !
to Which the Marquis Was
Arrested on a Trumped-Up i
Charge of Murder and
The Great Wedding at Athens i
—Numerous Deaths From
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

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

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

came along outside and beza.il beating
"La Gemrale." which is the signal <»t

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

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.

that during election time the tribunes

was being held. i was told that it was

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

attempted murder was abandoned, i
M. Constans. having been sue- [

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

admit that he is a strong man?''

"XI ConsUins is a strong man." said
the marquis, "but he is utterly unscru

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

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

east to west should lie clear a id dis
tinct, while those traveling in tiie other
direction are more or less blurred, re

Kins Luis' Body.
Lisbon, Oct. 21.— body of the
late King Luis was conveyed to Beleni

i cavalry, accompanied the body. The
: Italian court will wear mourning for
i three months in memory of King Luis.
A large number of pathetic messages of
condolence have been received from
Tired of Flummery.

Salvator. of Austria, hasexpressed a de
sire to resign ail his titles and appoint

thought unlikely that Emm rjr Francis
.Joseph will give his consent to the arch
duke's taking this step.
Anything to Beat Eiffel.
Loxdox, Oct. 21. — A company has
j been formed here for the purpose of

! plan. The tower is to be L.250 feet high.
! Five hundred pounds is otfered as a

Goschen and Mr. Balfonr had a long
conference with Lord Salisbury at the |
foreign office to-day. The subjects i
under discussion were the defeats re- j
cently sustained at the polls by the i
Conservatives and the projected Irish

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.

Fatal Result of a Quarrel in a
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. His i
father was a wealthy slave-holder and !
i plantation owner. ilia brother is a ,
! large manufacturer and one of the j
'• prominent citizens of Dallas. Tex. j
: Nunnelly was known as a very bright i
business man. He went into a hundred |
| different projects, but, lost by reason of ;
! dissipation.

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
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
"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
"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."
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.
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
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.

To-day bis improvement was not so

The Felonious Ten Now Safely Behind
Prison Bars.
Fly Into a Steamer and Several of
Them Are Cap
The long-expected Felonions Ten, or
Satan's Sons, arrived from Winona yes- i
terday in charge of the sheriff and four j
guards. They were met at the depot

■•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."
