Cable Special to Tim UEEHobert T.
Lincoln , American minister , reached Lon
don last night aud was driven with his fam
ily direct to his house nt 5 Cadogan square.
Mr. Lincoln came over on the Inman
steamer , City of Paris , which reached Liv
erpool nt B.o'clock yesterday. A Herald re
porter won't over with n party of Lincoln's
friends to welcome him. Amontr them was
Hon. Henry S. White , charge d1 affaires of
the United States legation at London. On
reaching Liverpool , It was found that elab
orate preparations had been made by the
mayor of that city to give the now minister
not only a royal reception , but n banquet.
Charles T. Hussoll , the retiring American
consul , and Mr.Whlto had a little- steamboat
placed at their disposal by Mr. James Spen
cer , the Liverpool manager of the In man
line , to meet the City of Paris and bring Mr.
Lincoln ashore. A great throng of spec
tators gathered along the water to view the
Bccnc. The City of Pans , with her three
great smokestacks , lay at anchor In mid
stream , with some seven hundred cabin
passengers on board. When the tender put
off for the ship at least three thousand people
ple were gazing at the spectacle from the
docks. It was n perfect day , with
fair air , skies and summer sun.
Among the guests of Messrs. White
tind Husscll , on the tender , were :
Sir Jnmcts Poole , Sir James Picton , Admiral
Geough , Thomas Uarltor , secretary of the
Liverpool chamber of commerce , and James
Spence , manager of the Inman lino.
With flying colors the tender steamed out
to the City of Pans , and Mr.Whlto and Con-
BU ! Uussell went on board and introduced
their guests to Mr. Lincoln , who seemed
very much pleased with the announcement
that the mayor and other distinguished
Liverpool representatives were on shore
awaiting him. The impatient passengers on
the great ship were naturally very anxious
fe to get ashore ; but their baggage and custom
house oflleials were forgotten in the wel
come to the new minister. Mr. Lincoln and
his party boarded tlio tender to go ashore ,
nnd through the courtesy of the custom
house ofllclals there was no delay with lug
gage ; and when the signal was given to
steam for shoro.'the 700 passengers on the
ship gave throe old fashioned United States
cheers for the departing minister.
At the lauding stage in Liverpool the po
llco cleared a wida space and fenced off a
lane through the crowd from the water clear
np to Main street. Thcro stood Mayor E. H.
Cookson , with acres of spectators on every
side of htm. In his Immediate presence wore
Sir William Forward , ex-Mayor Okshott ; D.
Wothorell , editor of the Dally Post ; Thomas
H. Ismay , chairman of the White Star Steam
ship company , aud several representatives ol
the city government. As Mr. Lincoln and
party stepped on the shore they were mosl
heartily welcomed by the mayor. Minister
Lincoln was evidently touched by the sincerity
cority of the greeting nnd , shaking hands
-warmly , ho expressed his very great pleasure
uro In meeting the mayor and his friends.
Ho spoke of his remarkably quick voyag <
from Now York , the excellent uccommoda
tlons on board and the kind attention showt
himself nnd friends , during the passage. H <
said ho was not a stranger to England , hav
ing visited the country in former years. It
response to the Invitation to remain for tin
banquet proposed for his honor , Mr. Lincolt
said that ho regretted his inability to remain
even for ono night , us railway arrangement !
lind been made for him to go through to Lon
don that night. Tlio minister was driven ir
a special carriage to the Northwestern sta
and the party loft almost Immediately on UK
afternoon express for London.
In conversation with the Herald ropre.sen
tatlvo Mr. Lincoln said ho was pleased ti
find so cordial n greeting on every hand am
ho trusted that the future would bo as satisfactory
-factory as it promise ! ! . Consul Hussoll sail
ho wished through the Herald to thank Mr
Spence , the Liverpool manager of the Inraai
line , for his personal attention to the discm
barkation of Mr. Lincoln's suite , and t <
the transportation of the guests , which h
had provided for the occasion.

LEAGUE LK9SI3NKD OUTRAGE.
O'Urlcn Continues Ills Testimony Be
fore the Parnell CommlRslon.
LONDON , Mnv 22. William O'Hrlon con
tinued his testimony before the Parnoll
commission to-day. Ho denied that ho bad
over published in United Ireland articles In
citing outrage. The league , ho said , was
founded chiefly to oppose secret landlord
combinations. The landlords had formed a
combination , having a nominal capital of
. 1,000,000 , , for the purpose of carrying out
evictions by the wholesale nnd replacing
tenants with colonies of tenants from other
countries. Ho had been n member of the
committee of the league since Us organiza
tion. Witness had never heard a suggestion
to courage outrage. Several branches of
the league had been suppressed in consequence
quence of strong language used at the meet
ings , and the excessive boycotting to which
they resorted.
Witness attended the convention In Amer
ica in 188(1. ( Ho had no connection with the
dynamiters while thcro , ns the bulk of these
who attended the convention were men of
high standing. Witness saw Patrick Ford
at the convention. Ho appeared to bo sorry
for the attitude ho had previously taken.
On cross-examination , O'Brien said he did
ot consider boycotting unconnitutlonal. It
vus simply Irish for black-balling. In
mswer to further questions by
.he . attorney-general , O'Hrlon ' said
t was Impossible to say what Is legal und
, vhat is Illegal in Ireland. Anything that
two resident magistrates said Is law , Is law.
The league certainly tended to lessen out-
agc , but no league or human power could
irovont crime ID such n crisis as that of 187'J. '
Iu had never advised people to assist the
government In the detection of crime bo-
auso that would bo accepting n responsi
bility tuo league wholly repudiated. United
reland had never denounced secret societies

DR , CRONIN'S ' BODY FOUND
In the Catch Basin of a Lake Vlow

A BLOODY TOWEL ON HIS HEAD
The Rcmalna Stark Naked nml 1'utrl-
1'yli'K A Dozen Cuts on Ills
Bcnlp mul Ills Skull
Cracked.
A Hnrrlhlo Sight.
Cmcuflo , May 23.- The dead body of Dr.
Cronln was found this evening some distance
north of the city in a sewer on Evanston
avonuo.
A bloody towel was wrapped about his
head , but the body was stark naked. A
Catholic emblem , wnlch the doctor always
were next his skin , suspended about his neck ,
was untouched. On his head were a dozen
cuts which had savored the ncalp und in
dented the skull. It Is the opinion of the
police that Cronln was foully murdered.
Much excitement was shown at detoctlvo
headquarters when all doubt as to the Iden
tity of the body was finally removed by
definite messages from Lake Vlow. It was
evident from the expressions of the pollco
that ono of their first objects will bo to hnvo
explained some expressions made by sup
posed friends of Cronln.
Lieutenant Elliott , chief of the detectives ,
will hnvo these people nt the Inquest and
demand an explanation , full and complete.
The detectives claim they have bocn handi
capped from the start by lack of assistance
: rom those who claimed to know all con-
ernlmr the doctor's ' disappearance.
"I will have this information now , " said
jlctonunt Elliott , "or there will bo a number
if prompt arrests. "
Wholly accidental circumstances brought
, hp corpse to light. A gang of laborers who
, vcro cleaning the ditches along Evanston
avenue , noticed near the corner of Evanston
avenue and twenty-ninth street , a strong
smell. Ono of the men pried off the cover of
the catch basin at the corner , and discovered
the corpse. It haa apparently been hastily
pitched into the basin , ns the head was un
derneath , und the feet and logs in the open
ing. This basin Is located nearly a mlle from
where the mysterious blood-stained trunk
was found on the day after Cronln's disap
pearance.
It seems altogether remarkable- It was
not sooner discovered , for the Lake View
police started out to search all the catch ba
sins In tlat suburb the day after the trunk
was found. Ono of the searchers said to-
[ iight that they had missed the basin whore
the body was hid.
The body was immediately taken to the
Lake View morgue , and within an hour a
dozen of Cronln's friends were in the sta
tion. They were quite sure it was the body
of the missing doctor , and thol r opinion was
verified by T. T. Conklin , with whom Cronin
lived , and also by others.
Dr. Brandt , who examined the body , said
the blows on the head must have been in
flicted by some sharp instrument.
There would seem to bo no possibility of
doubt ns to the identification of the body.
Among many others who expressed a posi
tive opinion in regard to It , was the dentist
who recently wonted on Cronln's teeth , and
also a man who for many years has been
Crouin's ' tailor. It is thought that Cronin'a
body was carried in the mysterious blood
stained trunk. There was cotton
found ab6us the feet and under
the chin of tlio corpse , of the same
quality as that found in the trunk , and
threads of cloth found in the cotton corres
pond in appearance with threads of the
towel wrapped about Cronin's head. The
body was much swelled and in nn advanced
state of decomposition owing to its long stay
under water in the catch basin.
The man Woodruff , or Black , who after
arrest , confessed to having helped carry off
a trunk containing a corpse , which he
claimed was that of a woman , from
a barn in the city on the night of Cronin's
disappearance was interviewed to-night in
jail. Ho manifested no surprise when told
of the discovery , but while talking freely
about the matter , seems careful not to go
outside of the story ho had originally told.
Ho repeatedly said that if ho * had not been
locked up in Jail ho could and would have
cleared up the mystery buforo this time.
Alexander Sullivan Horrified.
CHICAGO , May 23. Alexander Sullivanex-
president of the Irish National league , was
horror stricken , to-night , when told of the
discovery of Dr. Cronln's body. Ho said ho
he was at a loss to know what
to say , further than that ho
was dumbfounded , as ho has believed
nil along that Dr. Cronin would , turn up nil
rignt. Ho had no theories whatever to ad
vance as to the probable cause of the doctor's
murder. In referring to the statement made
by some of Cronin's friends ns to tbt latter's
disappearance , Unit ho ( Sullivan ) knew
more about the matter than ho cared
to tell , Mr. Sullivan said ho had treated that
report with contempt at the time , and had
nothing else for It now. Ho added that ho
will do everything in his power to help place
the guilty persons where they belong.
TWENTY'-TWO MILLION DOLLARS.
Robert Shields ts Get That Amount

TACOMA , W. T. , May 22. ( Special Tele
gram to THE DEE. ] Twenty or thirty years
ago Robert Shields , then n comparatively
young man , acquired a homestead down on
the bank of the Missouri river , on the site

iilvcR Aroiiost.
itloNTHBAL , May 23-iJ-Tno steamships Cyn
thia and Polynesian collided this morning
near Long Point , ft fo\v 'miles cast of this
city. Eight lives tire reported lost. The
collision occurred In the channel opposite
Long Point. The Cynthia was a freighter
and was inward bound from Glasgow. The
Polynesian was outward bound with freight
and passengers for Liverpool. Immediately
after the collision the Cynthia sank In
twelve fathoms of water. The survivors
from the Cynthia swam ashore and the Poly
nesian proceeded to Quebec In a damaged
condition ,
Following Is n list of the crow of the
Cynthia who lost their lives : Hugh Irving ,
chief cook , of Glasgow , Alxcandor Nicholas ,
sailor , of Glasgow ; Romance and Charles
McCraekon , trimmers , James Low , lire-
man , Glasgow ; James Forron , boatswain ,
Charles Blnckstock , mess-room boy , and
David Young , stowaway , from Glasgow.
The Cynthia was built by Henderson , of
Glasgow , and her cargo consisted of about
5.r)0 tons of pig Iron und COO tons of coal.
When the Cynthia struck bottom there was
a report hko a cannon and n shock that uindo
the chimneys tumble down. Though tlio
people on the Polynesian must have bcou
aware of the damage wrought , the vessel
never stopped to tender aid.
The sailors of the C.vutliln claim that the
Polynesian steamed right along , and that If
she mul stopped she could have saved the
men who were drowned. They also state
that there were fifteen men on shore who ,
although there were boats near by , did not
raise a finger to rescue the drowning sailors.
Tlio pilot on the Cynthia says the Poly
nesian was not In her proper course , and to
this ho ascribes the collision. The weather
was perfectly clear , and those on board the
Cynthia were surprised to see the course the
Polynesian was making. Instead of
coming straight down the channel
she was crossmtr the course of the Cynthia ,
which was ngrccnblo to the marine law ,
keeping on the starboard side of the river.
When fifty feet away the Polynesian blow
her whistle to signal the Cynthia to take the
opposite side of the channel. The pilot ac
cordingly put her about and en
deavored to cross , but seeing it
could not bo done signalled to bavo
the engines reversed. It was a vain effort
and the next in inn to the vessels had mot.
After the Polynesian kept on her course the
captain of the Cynthia tried to run that ves
sel ashore and save iho cargo , but almost
immediately she capsized , and all tried to
make their escape us best they could.
Ono man was crushed to death at the time
os the collision , mid seven were drowned
while attempting to ronoh the shore. Mariners
say it was impossible for the Polynesian to
render the Cynthia any assistance. With
"tho way" on her , caused by the full sliced
down stream , she could not have ssopped ,
and oven she could have stopped in the short
distance , she would have been unable to
turn.

MRS. CARTER'S SHAME.
On Hearing the Verdict She Is Almost
Prostrated. - _ ' ;
CHICAGO , May 22. [ Special Telegram to
THE BKE.J The vindication of Leslie Carter
and the shame ot his- wife , were simultane
ously proclaimed , when tlio Jury came into
Judge Jamicson's courtfthls morning , nnd re
turned a verdict finding Leslie Carter not
guilty of the charge of cruelty , and Mrs. Car
ter guilty of adultery. The jury arrived at this
conclusion after a heated sessionlasting until
3:30 : this inoruing.moro than 12 hours.Nolthcr
Mr. nor Mrs. Carter were in court when the
jury came in. Mr. Carter's brother , Ernest ,
was there , and when the verdict was read ho
smiled triumphantly. The fair platntifl's at
torneys looked dumfounded , while these of
the other side were jubilant.
There was great rejoicing nt Leslie Car
ter's mansion over the victory. Ernest Carter -
tor was driven at a gallop to the residence
and was the first to toll Leslie the news.
Then , as soon as the verdict became gener
ally known.carnages rattled up to the house ,
and the friends of the defendant in the cele-
brat ed suit extended their congratulations.
But when u reporter called at the Carter
homo the victor refused to be interviewed.
The news of her crushing defeat by her
husband In their legal battle was brought to
Mrs. Carter by Mr. Morrison , ono of her
counsel , and she was almost prostrated by
the shock. She hud not anticipated such a
result , and the sudden reaction was too
much for her. Her nervous condition be
came somewhat alarming , and Dr. King was
called , and she grew calmer us tbo day
passed. She seemed to suffer most keenly
over the part of the vordlct finding her
guilty of adultery , A motion for a new trial
lias been made by hnr counsel , and the day
for arguments will bo sot to-morrow. Should
it bo denied , us will probably bo the case ,
Mr. Carter's ' lawyers will ask for a decree
giving him a divorce and the custody of the
child , while Mrs. Carter's counsel will take
an appeal to the appellate court , and ask for
a continuance of the present order of the
court allowing each parent to have the child
alternate months. Should this request be
denied , a supersedcasHvill bo asked for from
the appellate court stopping the judgments
of the lower court.
The trial of this case has cost Cook county
several thousand dollars , but how much it
cost Leslie Carter can ; only bo estimated.
The lawyers say it certainly can not bo less
than $50,000.

WASHINGTON Huitr.AU , Tun OMAHA Hen , )
5111 FOUUTKKNTH STIIKET , , \
WASHINGTON , D. C. , May S3. j
A good deal of cheap capital has been made
by democratic newspapers out ot the an
nouncement that all pensions had been
drawn from the treasury and that there Is
no more money to pay pensions. Commis
sioner Tanner to-dny took the trouble to explode -
plodo this announcement , and to mnko it
ridiculous.
Ho said : 'Certoluly ' , thcro Is no moro
money In the treasury department for the
payment of pensions now , and the appropria
tion is exhausted no far as the vaults of the
treasury are concerned. 13ut this Is true
only of the appropriation for the fiscal year
ending Juno 30th next. It Is true also that
the money Is now resting quietly In the de
positories of the United States , subject to
the rcqulstlon of pension agents. What was
the money appropriated for if it was not to
pay pensions I Is not the appropriation for
pensions or anything else always exhausted
nt the cud of the fiscal year ) The
law contemplates that it shall bo
exhausted. Wo took the money
out of the treasury the other day
and put It In the United States depositories
so that it could bo reached easily by pension
agents. So , you sco , the Idea that the 'last
appropriation for pensions has already been
exhausted by that reckless spendthrift , Tan
ner,1 is too silly to bo funny , and the demo
cratic newspapers have wasted their thunder.
Hut I Intend to call attention to the fact that
General Ulack refused to ask the lust con
gress for more than fSO,000,000 for the fiscal
year , although the secretary of the interior
told him that $10,000,000 or $15,000,000 moro
would bo required to meet the demand. If
there was a deficiency in tlio last appropria
tion for pensions it would bo the fault of the
man who failed to ask congress to give him
sufficient munoy. "
THIillC IS NO QUAIinCL.
An intimate personal friend of Senator
Quay who dined with that gentleman the
other night and has been In his company
almost constantly for several days , muuo
this remarkable statement to your correspondent
pendent this afternoon :
"There has been no quarrel between Sena
tor Quay and the president. No harsh words
have passed between them. The senator ,
however , has been greatly pleased to see the
reports In the newspapers throughout the
country that there was a difference between
him und the president , and that ho would
ask no moro favors at the white house. Ho
has encouraged , by his refusal to talk and
his peculiar actions , the circulation of these
reports. His object in desiring the impres
sion to gain currency that ho was 'out' with
the president and the administration wan
to rid himself of offlceseckors. He believed
'thatJftho people thought ho had no favors
to-ask * at'the hands of the president and
had , ceased.to , visit the executive depart
ments , ' he would bo rid of the army of office-
seekers which surrounds him almost con
stantly. Although Senator Quay has been
in Washington several days his most inti
mate friends cannot find him. Ho is in con
stant hiding und when ho goes about the
streets it is in a closed carriage. When ho
goes to his lodging nt night it is by a back
way , from which ho emerges in the morning
ns mysteriously as a barn burner. If Sena
tor Quay did not , do this ho could not cat or
sleep. As long us his residence was known
ho was beseigcd continually from early
morning till after midnight by offlco-sceKcrs. "
FLOATING GOSSIP.
Another interesting bit of gossip was floatIng -
Ing around the hotels and departments , to
day , in connection with the alleged changes
which are soon to take place in the cabinet
consequent upon the filling the vacancy on
the bench of the supreme court of the United
States. It was stated that whep Attorney-
General Miller is appointed to the bench of
the supreme court , General Goff , of West
Virginia , will become attorney-general ; that
General Goff expects to bo counted out of the
governorship of West Virginia by the com
mission which is" now in session for the pur
pose of determining whether the democrat
or republican is entitled to the ofllco. As a
kind of "dust-in-tho-furrow" to the report , it
was rumored that Judge Woods , of the fed
eral court of Indmnu , would be appointed to
the Matthews vacancy , and that Attornoy-
Gcacral Miller would retain the position ho
uo\v occupies.

TICKET SCALPERS.
The American Ticket Brokers' An-
mini Convention.
New YOIIK , May 22. The American Ticket
IJrokors' association began its annual con
vention to-day , with fully ono hundred dole-
; ates present from all p.irts of the country.
The convention will last nt least two days.
To-morrow night n banquet will bo given , to
which all the leading railroad oflleials In this
citv and vicinity will bo invited , and at
which nu informal general discussion on the
subject of ticket brokerage will bo In
dulged in.
President McCrary called the convention
.o order and read tno annual address. He
called attention to the fact that the great
railroad corporations have been for the past
few months endeavoring to have the busi
ness of the members of the association
branded as illegitimate. These magnates ,
lie said , had by every moans in their power
tried to have laws passc'd l > y the different
legislatures declaring their business
Illegal , but they Signally foiled.
The small railroads , ho said , princi
pally depended on the' ticket brokers
for their subsistence , and that was the
reason why the largo railroads wished to de
stroy the business of the brokers. The re
port , of the executive committee dealt mainly
with what was termed the persecution to
which the members of the association were
subjected to duriug past years. It says in
part :
"Our occupatiou has been maligned , scan
dalized and misrepresented , charged with
conspiracy , with crime , with fraud and with
all that is evil. Uut the public has been our
ally , and truth and honest dealings our only
weapons , and wo stand to-day victors upon
a hard fought field.1
The report was adopted. After several
communications had been read the conven
tion adjourned.
Evolution Tabooed.
CHATTANOOOA , Tenu. , May 22. The evolu
tion quest'on ' came up again to-day in the
discussion of a resolution to disapprove of
the action of the South Carolina synod con
demning as unwise , Irregular and uncon
stitutional thu action of the Ccarleston Pres
bytery in forbidding public contending
against the decision of the Baltimore assem
bly in the Woodrow evolution case. After
several heated speeches a resolution disap
proving of the action of the South Carolina
synod was adopted by n vote of 11'i to 31.
Thus the doctrine of evolution was again
snowed under. In a particularly vigorous
speech on sustaining the action of the
Charleston presbytery , Dr. Glrardcau said
they had the right , as guardians of the
church , to prohibit the circulation of such n
false doctrine.
"Tho matter comes down to the question
whether we. as n church , uro to consider the
scriptures as silent or not In regard to the
manner of creation. The Baltimore assem
bly said not. The Charleston presbytery
said not , und I hope this general assembly
will say the sumo. "

Soon after this doctor resigned.
"What is tliu matter with the institution

"It is under the influence of boodlcrism. It
is in a bad place , on unsalubrious grounds.
Tnero should bo two now buildings , ono for

county board should bo kicked out and the
asylum put in the hands of u stuto commis

Dr. Clovengcr told how boodlcrism had
prevented investigation. Even ministers of
the gospel were afraid of the boodlcrs , who
occupied seats in their churches. Ho said there
has been repeated testimony that vermin ,
abounded In the wards , mid Dr. ICohlor ,
nn assistant ph.vsicinnfound ; maggots in the
wounUs of neglected patients in 18S4. Bed
bugs would torture patients under their
straitjackets and rats would mutllato the
bodies of those who had died unattended
during the night. The nmlo attendants were
usually appointed by tlio county commission
ers for their lighting qualities ut the polls at
election time. Brawls , drunkenness , oaths ,
incessant alarms , pistol shooting , immor
ality , stealing , etc. , exerted n very depress
ing inlluenco upon the decent ofll-
eials there and caused them to
waste much of their energy in keening
out of rows. The county board's financial
reports were falsified ana confusetMn a var
iety of ways , and often the expression ,
"General expenses , " would cover $1,000 or
more of unaccounted bills. Everything
was douo to make an apparent allowing ot
external cleanliness , but the whlto-wahhlnu
and the flowers and well-kept lawn constl-
stutcd the place but n whlted sepulchre.
