Prosecution of Officers tf a Defanct London Building Society for Fraud Begun. PARIS, Deo. 17.—M. Chariot Aime Marie de Lesaeps and M. Marines Etienne Fontane and M. San-Leroy have been arrested by direction of the minis ter of justice, M. Burgeoia, for their alleged connection with the Panama •anal frauds. M. Henri Louis Felix Cottu, for whose arrest an order was also issnnd, has fled to Vienna. San Leroy is charged with having accepted bribe as a member of the chamber of 4eputiee. The charges against the offi cers of the company, on which snm laonses were previously served, and on %hich they have now been arrested, are fhat they have jointly made use of fraudulent immaginary credit that Ihey have dissipated capital entrusted to them for a specific purpose and that they have swindled others out of part of *11 of their means of living on their fortunes. These offenses came within Jhe reach of seven articles of the penal Code. San-Leroy ia said ,to be badly impli cated by documents and other evidence brought to light. In the hearing before the Panama investigating committee a few days ago M. San-Leroy utated that he had changed his vote in obedience to the wishes of his constituents. It is understood that the government had documentary evidence showing the Sxact amount paid to M. San-Leroy for liis change of front. Besides making the arrests the authorities have searched the residences of De Lesseps, Fontane, Cottu and San-Leroy, and seized a mass «f document* throwing new and im portant light on the Panama frauds and Correction.

DR. BRIGGS' 0EFEN8E. Hie ttrrtfa Professor'* SpMck la Bis Own Behalf Applauded. NEW YORK, Dec. 17.—Rev. Dr. Briggs resumed his defense before the New York presbytery. He commenced his argument with a discussion of the disci pline of the church. He did not recog inize the infallibilty of the pope, and most certainly he did not recognize the infallibility of the Presbyterian general assembly. The prosecution, he claimed, 'jhad perverted his statements in his in augural address, and had misrepre sented his meaning. If they had studied and understood the true intent of his assertions they never would have made the blunder they have made. After quoting at length from bis in augural address, and citing passayes from the scriptures in support of his position, he exclaimed with uplifted hand: "Standing in the divine presence, and weighing well every word I say, I welcome this contest, and, as you stand in the presence of a higher court than any organized by maa, J..challenge you upon your faith, and trust in God to a righteous verdict." There was an out burst of applause, especially from the crowded galleries. The presbytery ad journed to meet Monday. OFFICIAL COUNTS. Wisconsin.
