LOUBET IS STROM FRENCH PRESIDENT HAS THE BETTER OF THE RECENT DIS TURBANCES IN PARIS PREMIER' Mill USDISHIfED will forces PROSECUTION of the: royalists who INSULTED the: PRESIDENT COMTESSE CASTELLANE DENIES Declare* She Did Not Take an Active Part In DlMtnrbance at Aulriill Race Track—Wild Scene* In tlie Chumber oUT Deputies During Dls ciiMhion of the Ugly l)f ministra tion—Examination of Offenders*. PARIS, June 5.-The scenes at Auteuil on Sunday and in the chamber c!" deputies today have only had the effect of increasing' the jopulariiy of President Loubet and of strengthening the hands of th<? government. The promptitude of the premier, M. Dupuy, in carrying out hi? promise to take meavjies to Insure justice as soon as the court of cassation bad pronounced judgment is regarded i'.s proof that he himself can show a clean biil, and although he wad premier at the tii.it, Geu. Mercier kept him ignorant of the measures adopted against Dreyfus. Interviews with various high personages who witnessed the incident at Auteuil yesterday are published this morning, all testifying to the savagery of the dem onstration. It is asserted that although the price of admission to the paddock was 20 francs, this was full of coachmen, footmen and valets, evidently sent there to create a disturbance. Countess Lourmti, wife of the Italian ambassador to France, was sitting on M. l.oubefs left during the affuir, and he a.'keel her whether she intended to stay. She rtplied: "Certainly, Monsieur le President, am 1 not in the place or" honor?" Capt. Baratier, of the Alarchand mis sion, attracted considerable attention to himself during the affair, and was pub licly kissed by Duchesse d'Uzes. Among those arrested whose names have not hitherto been cabled are Comte Fromsen, Vicomte Combe and Comte Moustlers Merinvllle. M. Lemercier, the examining magis trate, tonight began the interrogation of those under arrest for participating in yesterday's rioting. Ten. including M. de Panissapassy, have been provisional ly released. About fifteen will be prose cuted on the charge of rebellion, for ■which the punishment is five years' im prisonment. The charge against Comte Christiano is of assaulting a magistrate while in the exercise of his functions, an offense punishable by imprisonment from two to five years. CABINET ACTS PROMPTLY. The ministers met this morning, Pres ident Loubet in the chair, and decided to femove the advocate general, M Lom bart, and the minister of justice, M Le Bret, was directed to begin proceedings against M. Tardiff, president of the as sizes court, before the council of mag istracy, for the way in which they con ducted the case against MM. Deroulede and Marcel-Habert, who were acquitted V\ ednesday last of the charge of inciting soldiers to insubordination at the time of the election of President Loubet. The cabinet did not arrive at any de cision respecting Gens, de Boisdeffre and Gonse, pending the result of the inquiry regarding Dv Paty de Clam. The prefect of police, M. Blanc has ordered the closure of the Automobile Club de France, of which the Count de Dion, who was one of the ringleaders at Auteil yesterday, is president. A po lice commissary thereupon proceeded to the club's premises on the Place de la Concord, and cleared the members out, after which he affixed seals on the doors Vigorous measures have been taken to suppress demonstrations. Mounted de tachments of republican guards have been stationed about the Place de la Con ccrd, in the Rue de l'Elysee, and in the Rue dcs Tuilerles. VIOLENT SCENES. There were violent scenes in the cham ber of deputies this afternoon, owing to royalist denunciations of President Lou bet, and the soldiers on duty had to expel the chief anti-Loubet speaker, M. Rious de Largentaye. The chamber of deputies met at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The public gal leries were crowded with fashionable people, including many ladles in pretty toilettes who used their fans vigorously on account of the heat. The galleries of the senators and diplomats were also full. There was a large and early at tendance of deputies who animatedly dis cussed the incidents of yesterday. Pre mier Dupuy and the minister of justice, M. Lebret, sat on the ministerial bench. M. La Loge, who moved the interpella tion, rose at 2:25 p. m. and said the hour of action had struck. (Cheers from the Leftists and murmurs from the Rightists, and a bable of cries in which MM. Cas sagnac and Lassies, anti-Semites, par ticipated). M. La Loge asked the premier if he had been warned beforehand of yester day's demonstration. He then eulogized President Loubet, who, he said, under took the presidency in a time of stress. (Loud applause.) M. Rlous de Largentaye, Conservative, representing the Second division of Dl nan, Cotes dv Nord, shouted: "Loubet is not honest; he is a Panamaist." This statement called forth violent pro tests and shouts of order, but M. de Lar gentaye persisted In spite of the uproar in declaring honest men were arrested yesterday. This was followed with shouts of "Down with Loubet," and a scene of wild excitement ensued. The Leftists shouted at the top of their voices: "Cen sure, with temporary exclusion." President Deschanel ordered M. de Lar gentaye to withdraw, but the latter re fused and the session was suspended, the deputies being requested to withdraw in or.ler that M. de Largentaye be expelled. When the order was given for the ex pulsion of M. de Largentaye the com manding officer on duty at the Palais Bour bon entered the chamber with a squad of soldiers and requested M. de Largentaye to withdraw. . The latter waited until many of his colleagues had left the house, then rose and walked out, escorted by the soldiers. There was cheering and counter-cheering when M. de Largentaye appeared in the corridor. The sitting was then resumed. M. La Loge asked what measures the government Intended to take in the future, and the premier replied that after yesterday's Incidents his first step was to address a respectful fj)g $1 fattl iluk greeting to the nation's elect and to "the firm dtisen .who was and who remains the guaranty of republican communion." (Cheers.) ROYALISTS EXCORIATED. Premier Dupuy said: "The representa tives of eleganco and good taste have given us an idea of what France may expect from their idleness and indolence. We knew secret meetings had taken Place, and that preparations were made for demonstrations. We took measures ! for the president s protection in driving to and from the race course, and nothing occurred on the way." Here a royalist deputy cried out: "You hid him." M. Dupuy retorted: "No, your friends hid behind the women." Protests from the Rightists followed and M. l.asslos, anti-Semite, cried: "Loubet and Delcasse (the minister of foreign affairs) hid behind policemen." This statement was followed by an up roar lasting several minutes. M. Dupuy continued: "We stationed police at the paddock with orders to intervene immediately in case of a demonstration, and did so, though the met with much opposition and protects. I assume all responsibility. ' "You have the evil eye," cried M. Las sies, a remark which caused laughter. M. Dupuy continued: "AH the police did their duty and an Individual threw him self on the president of the republic, who remained calm. The proceedings at Au teuii were all the more disgusting be en use they occurred in the presence of foreign representatives. The persons who have been arrested will be examined by a magistrate, who will decide whether there is a conspiracy. We are satisfied the accused are members of clubs which the government has decided to close. Yesterday's demonstrators pretend to represent France in the army, but the public are against them. We are sup porters of the republic and republicans who do not mix with those who are only borrowed in name In order to better de stroy her. They have given us a counter sign we intend to uphold. If you give us your confidence we shall know how to defend our institutions from those who attack them." (Applause.) HINT OF REVOLUTION. Here M. de Cassagnac, Conservative, In terjected: "The country is sick of the republic. As to the affair which has divided the nation and families, it will weigh heavily against you. The stories current in re gard to the measures which you propose against the generals—" "A certain amount of courage," ex claimed the premier, "is required to do what we propose.'" "To drag before a high court," retorted M. Cavaignac (the former, minister of war), "your former colleague. You have cause to close the clubs,,for the nation is awakening and is only awaiting the right man." (Applause.) After further debate M. Meline and his supporters moved the order of the day, approving the government's action. An order of the day was accepted by the gov ernment stigmatizing the occurrence at Auteuil and approving the declarations of the government. It was tarried without a division, after the first part" had been adopted by a vote of 513 to 32, and the second part had been voted by 326 to 123. GEN. MERCIER GETS A STAY. A heated discussion afterwards occurred over the prosecution of . Gen. ■ Mercier in the midst of which M. Lasies sug gested the impeachment of the premier and -violently; criticised : those c who were "persecuting" Gen. Mercier, which the deputy declared was a maneuver made to lnfluenc the court-martial .at Rennes. \--. Finally the* chamber voted to adjourn the appointment of the com mission -of Inquiry into the conduct of Gen. Mercier until after the court-mar tial at Rennes. •;/-'" ' \i'.'.~ '."■:■: ■ •* The Leftists moved . that the verdict of the r court of cassation -,; be' placarded everywhere In France, and M.

Ray, of Nor wich, called at Republican state head quarters today and gave his views on the speakership contest. "It's all up with New York," he said to a reporter, "Henderson has enough votes to elect him already and in a few days he will have nearly every state In th* Union back of him. Under the circum stances all that the New York delegation can do is to fall into line tomorrow and whoop for Henderson. If we adopt any other course we will be dragged in the mud behind the Henderson chariot. More over, to put forward a New York candi date when all the rest of the country is with Henderson would not Improve the chances of New York congressmen to get well placed on committees." DEFINES HIS POLICY, Probable Speaker Henderson la Drawn Into an Admission, MILWAUKEE, Wis., June 6.—ln an interview Col. D. B. Henderson, of lowa, expresses gratitude for the effective ef forts of Wisconsin congressmen In his behalf as candidate for speaker in the national congress to succeed Speaker Reed. In regard to the report that he is an anti-imperialist and with reference to other like matters, Col. Henderson said that now is not the time for individuals to fix policies. "See where we are," said Col. Hender son, "and then see whether it is reason able for us to attempt to anticipate the conditions which time brings. Here we are on June 5 in a period of transition and readjustment, and congress will not meet until next December—unless, which is not likely, there should be a special session—and we should not attempt to forestall future action with the light of developments may show to be advan tageous and proper. What we all should do at this time is to stand steadfastly in support of President McKinley. As the chief executive he is in possession of hourly acquired information as wto the ever-changing conditions. This he, in time, will give over to us, I have no doubt, and in the meantime I believe it the duty of us all to give him our firm, loyal support. That Is all I care to say— in fact I have said more than I had in tended faying." WOMANLY WOMEN. Compliment for the Wife of William Jenningw Bryan. WASHINGTON, June s.—The Demo crats of the District of Columbia held an enthusiastic meeting tonight, at which many speeches eulogizing Bryan and In dorsing him for the new president were made.

Remarkable Discovery Is Reported by Two Oregon Miner*. ' '■. ". PORTLAND, . Or., .1 June '- s.—Joseph Walsh and J Edward . Burke,: who; have grown' gray prospecting in Oregon, ■ say they have at last struck - a bonanza in Josephine county. y, They ;j found ; a mine little more than a month ago, and Its lo cation is known only to themselves. They came here yesterday en route to Ban Francisco to arrange ' for a ten-stamp mill. •■ They have with them $30,000, which they claim to have taken from a depth of less than a foot on their location. Walsh states that within the short time Blnoe he and his partner struck their mino they have dug a Bhaft about twenty feet, at which depth they found a well defined quartz ledge, or rather god edge, as the deposit contains 80 per clent gold. "I believe it to be the richest thing ever unearthed on this" coast," remarked Walsh. '"There is enough gold in sight to make multi-millionaires of both of us." He added that with * hand mortar alone there would be no difficulty in two men pounding out $10,000 a day. Walsh, who is now sWty-five years old, was working near Alvinza Hayward'B great mine in Amador county, California, when Hay ward struck It rich. Hay ward's luck did riot light upon him a moment too soon, because a few days be fore he struck the bt& body of ore he could no longer* obtain-'credit for a sack of flour. Walsh and Burke were In a similar fix when they found their bonanza. The joint capital was ddwn to Jess than $3, and they were without prospect of obtain ing work. r FINANCIAL LEGISLATION. .

On the other hand, a large faction of Demo crats are anxious to rid themselves of the free silver burden, and they are tak ing up the anti-expansion and anti trust cries. So It looks as if by the time the convention meets they will be ready for a big political trade. "They will bargain to buy off free sil ver by giving up the demand for a big army and navy and will go before the country on an anti-imperialism and anti corporation, socialistic and labor party basis. If this occurs there will be an other tremendous fight, but the Republi cans will win. Such a platform would mean the nomination of Mr. Gorman." PRESIDENT THOMSON DEAD.

AMERICANS ARE DENOUNCED Cuban Pres* and Officers of the Cu ban Army Join In Open Condem nation of the Methods Employed by the Intervening Nation—Rev olutionary Utterances That May Lead to Serious Trouble. HAVANA,June 5.—A dispatch from San Apitonio de los Banos says that Jose La Bregat, a notorious agent of Gen. Wey ler, who outraged defenseless women and killed children, arrived there yesterday. His appearance was the signal for the gathering of relatives and friends of those whom'he formerly persecuted. The excitement continued throughout the day MRS. MAYBRICK, WHO MAY SO ON BE RELEASED FROM PRISON, ' ■ ' A "' — ' ' ' ' * - ■' . ' J American women—and ■ men,, too —by the tens of thousands will find "pleasure In in the report that Mrs. Florence May brick may soon be released, from the English prison, whose doors shut behind her ten years ago. It would be hard, in deed, to find a convicted person, and one, too, convicted for such • a crime as the murder of a husband,- for whom such general sympathy has arisen and whose fate has excited such widespread senti mental interest. A petition signed by 503, --000 persons, resulted In the commutation of Mrs. Maybrlck's sentence from death to life Imprisonment, and since then ef forts on a great scale have been inter mittently made to secure her complete pardon. The center of all -the efforts has been among American women, who have never for a moment beUeved that Mrs. Maybrick was guilty of the crime charged and last n!ght. About midnight a crowd surrounded the house where he was, and began to threaten him. He attempted to escape, and, on meeting the demonstra tors, emptied his revolver, wounding two persons. The crowd closed in and cap tured him, and he was lynched in tliu public square. The anxiety following the excitement caused a commission of Spaniards to come to Havana yesterday to ask the in terference of Gen. Brooke. He could not receive them before a late hour of the evening, but he readily offered to send a detachment of American soldiers to the town. The commission, which left San Antonio before lynching, returned to find La Bregat dead. Col. Figuerro, of the Cuban cavalry In Havana province, in a communication to I.a Lucha, passionately appeals to the soldiers who were mustered out last week to refuse to give up their arms and ac cept the American gratuity. Tie de nounces those who act contrary to such advice as "cowards" and "voluntary out casts." Ho says: "The offer made by the United States insults the honor of the army of libera tion, which did not desert its posts even In the terrible battlefield and disgraces the graves of soldiers who died covered with glory. I do not doubt the sincerity of the American promises, but if this money is presented as a gift, why do not the Americans purchase plows and oxen with it, Instead of insisting upon the de livery of our arms. Guard, therefore, the flag, which will be mine through life, and guarded by my sabre, which will be un sheathed until the declaration of our Inde pendence or until the necessity arises for returning a Titanic Btroke." TO PROTECT ANIMALS. Although the laws of this city prohibit ing cruelty to animals are perhaps suf ficiently explicit and comprehensive. It now seems that either through the Igr norance or apathy of the police arrests of offenders are seldom made, though In stances of cruelty frequently come un der the eyes of the authorities. Ameri cans who are anxious to see established here a branch of the Society for Preven tion of Cruelty to Animals have recently discussed the matter with the civil gov ernor, Gen. Ruiz Rivers, the mayor, Senor Perfecto la Coste, and other prominent Cubans, as well as with MaJ. (Jen. Ludlow, and all are agreed that a branch office could do excellent work here under existing laws if certain lo calities had agents with power to make arrests and with the disposition to Inter est the public generally in enforcing the law. Under the present law any citizen is authorized to order the police to make an arrest for a specific and patent act .of cruelty, and the officer so ordered miiet obey, under penalty of dismissal for re fusing. "Very few people, however, are aware that this is allowed and the prin cipal end sought by the organizer* of the reform is to make the general pub lic acquainted with Its right in this re spect. Q«n.

When seventeen years old she met and married James Maybrick, a man of previous fast life, and still ad dicted to stimulants and drugs. He w?.s known to be an arsenic fiend. In 1889, after exposure on a race track, he be came sick and died. Mrs. Maybrick was arrested. Doctors testigfied that her hus band's death was not due to arsenical poisoning, and there was no evidence to show that Mrs. Maybrick had bought arsenic, though there was much to show that Mr. Maybrick personally used it. Yet she was • convicted. Now there is hope that the vigorous efforts of Joseph Choate, the American ambassador In London, may secure her release.

NEW YORK, June s.—(Special.)—A special from Manila says: "The situa tion here is one of uncertainty and un rest. The departure of the volunteers is not regarded with pleasure. Jt is feared that after they leave the rebels will be emboldened to attempt reprisals, as it Is one of the pet schemes of Aguinaldo to take advantage of just such happenings by informing his followers that ths Americans are leaving because they have had enough of fighting, thus encouraging WASHINGTON.June s.—(Special.)—The There is need for more troops rather than less." his forces to continue the struggle, recent ' conferences at the White houso have given rise to all sorts of rumors, and today it is. believed that the presi dent called in the adjutant general and other officials for the purpose of prepar ing to comply with- the suggestion of Gen. Otis that more soldiers be sent to Manila. Whatever the dispatches of Gen. Otis contain, they are not being made public, and that fact adds to the general disquietude here. It is predict ed that a sensation of no meager dimen sions, in Philippines affairs, is about to be sprung. PLOT IS CONFESSED. Americans Have Been Famishing PlltplnoH With Guum. WASHINGTON, June s.—Capt. Joseph Henry Grimes has made a complete con fession of the part he took in aiding the Filipinos, and the document is in the possession of the government. He is a British subject, born in Hong Kong, 23 years ago. He was office manager at Shanghai for L. Seltael & Co., and there became acquainted with the agents of the Filipino rebellion. On June 7 Grimes' firm conracted with Agoneillo to supply ■ 5,000 Mauser rifles, two Maxim guns, 1,000,000 cartridges, the steamer Pasig and provisions, etc., at a cost of 9138,000. The outfit was seized by the British, authori ties at the request of the Spanish consul. Then, says Grimes, B. F. Sylvester, a member of his firm, arranged with Ed ward B«dloe, American consul at Canton, to send the arms to that point by means of a false sale to the Chinese govern ment. The Chinese governor seized 4,500 rifles and kept them to suppress a re bellion in his territory. The local auttior tles refusing permission to sail, she was transferred from British to American register by Consul Bedloe, the name changed to The Abbey, and Bedloo cleared her and the supplies for the Fili pinos for Singapore. On Aug. 27 the Abbey, flying the Amer ican flag and commanded by Capt. G. G. Ellis, an American citizen, left VVham poa, fifteen miles from Canton. On board was Lewis Leonard Etzel, American citi zen, whose mission it was to teach the Filipinos how to use the Maxim guns. Sylvester, Grimes asserts, falsely told him that the facts about the expedition were known to Admiral Dewey and Con sul General Wildman. The captain put into Santangas. eighty miles south of Manila, and turned over the supplies to the insurgent government of that town. The cargo consisted of 496 rifles, 15,000 cartridges, two Maxim guns and 2,000 rounds of Maxim ammuni tion. After discharging the cargo Grimes went to Bacor, where he met Agulnaldo, who said he wanted more ammunition. Grimes returned to Hong Kong, but was not successful in his further plans. Syl vester visited Aguinaldo and failed to conclude a contract with him to procure arms in Germany. "It will be seen by the above state ment," Grimes saya, "that both Sylvester and Etzel plotted on American soil against the American government." The Abbey was seized about Sept. 25 last by the American revenue cutter Mc- Culloch, which was attached to Admiral Dewey's flotilla. Grimes was arrested In Manila on Nov. S. DRIVEN FROM MOROM.. Another Oofrnt fotr the Filipinos, With Nine Killed. MANILA, June s.—Two battalions of the Washington troops, under CoJ. Whalley, on board cascoes, were towed from Paslg to Morong on Sunday and landed under cover of a well-directed fire from the "tlnclad" army gunboats Napidan and Covadonga. The rebels, who were entrenched in the outskirts of the town, reserved their fire until the troops were ashore and in the open. The American artillery opened fire on the In surgents and drove them from their po sitions, killing nine of thorn and wound ing five. The Washington troops then took the town, the rebels fleeing to the hills. WWle the Americans were on their way to Morong the insurgents opened fire from a shore battery at Ancona, the first shot striking the Covadonga's awning at a range of 3,500 yards. The Napidan also was fired at. NOTHING TO GIVE OUT. Cfen. Corbln at the White Honsr on Manila Bnttlness. WASHINGTON. June 5.-Gen. Carfeln was at the White house tonight, going over the dispatches from Manila and other places and considering matters in connection with the campaign in Luzon. There was nothing, however, from t»en. Otis that the officials care to make pub lic. Although aware several days ago of the prospective campaign for driving the insurgents out of the peninsula of Mo rong, no detailed report of the move ments of the troops has been receiped by the war department. There was a long dispatch from Gen. Otis, but it dealt mainly with routine matters, including the examination of officers for promotion, but filed to give any account of the latest Continued on Fourth Page.
