Nothing sensational is expected to

has been on hand for some time.
The postmaster-general has decapi

Washington, April 5.— -The senate
consumed two hours again in an effort
to dispose of the nomination of Henry
W. Long, to be register of the Florida
land office. No voting quorum ap
peared, and the senate adjourned with
the case still in statu quo.
The vote was taken on Mr. Pasco’s
motion to recommit the nomination to
the committee, but Mr. Call and his
followers, who are in the majority, re
fused to permit this to be done. Mr.
Pasco insisted that the man be given
another hearing before the committee,
and Mr. Call asserted that it was suffi
cient to know that the nominee was his
bitterest enemy and that the nomina

front to him. This led to some warm
words between the two Florida sena

In New York City—lntense
New York, April s.— From revelry to
riot was but a step, and a short one at
that, at the masque ball of the Carmen
cita club iu Tammany hall about 3
o’clock yesterday morning. There
were upon the floor and in the boxes
not far from 1,500 persons, and though
the bar was closed there was no lack
of intoxicants, so that when the dis
turbance b.gan many persons were
crazed with drink.
Roundsman Shay preeipitated the
trouble by undertaking to stop the per

occupied by Eddie Hirtch, the keeper
of a Coney Island dance hall, and a
party of his friends. The officer was
told to mind his own business where

went to Shay's assistance. Bottles
and chairs were made use of by the
crowd. Clubs were swung lustily and
many heads felt the force of the lo
custs. In the midst of the affray the
lights were extinguished, but the
struggle did not even then abate.
When the lights were again turned
on one man was lying deal upon the
steps leading to the street. His name
was Terrence Gallagher, aged 33 years,
a race track tout, whose residence was
122 East 125th street. Mark Buckner,

cracked, and may die. George Bern

Washington, April s.—The threat of
Guatemala and Mexico to stop the pay

of silver is increased, has encouraged
the silver men in congress. The re

Negro Cook Killed In Darlington for Talk

Darlington, S. C., April s.—At the
Cleveland house here last evening Dr.
Spain shot and killed a negro cook, who
had reported him as being one of those
who were concerned in the dispensary
transaction which caused the recent
riots. Spain was at once arrested by a
squad of soldiers who were in charge
of the hotel and taken to police head
quarters. Everything is now quiet
and there is apparently no danger of
further trouble. Two companies of
militia marched double quick from the
camp, however, for the purpose of
thoroughly policeing the city.
ALABAMA SHERIFF KILLED.
Negro Desperado Shot Him Dead and
Ropton, April 5.—J. D. Foster, sheriff

of men, went to Tait’s house to arrest
him, and he was secluded in the woods
near by and shot the sheriff as he ap
proached the building. This same ne

The negro is still at large, heavily
armed with pistols and a Winchester
rifle with a full supply of ammunition.

THE COLONEL LEAVES THE STAND.
Judge Wilson Asks the Defendant All
.Manner of Questions, and firings
Interesting Testimony Out in
Washington, April s.— Judge Wilson
began the examination of Colonel
Breckinridge with reference to the vil
lage of Goldsborougii, Ivy., and asked
him if he delivered a speech there in
The defendant thought not; then
Judge Wilson asked if he remembered
saying to the servant woman at Mrs.
Thomas', on the day after he had taken
lunch there with .Miss Pollard, “Mary,
that was very nice lunch, and when
Madeline and I go to housekeeping I
want you to come with us.’’
“Oh, that's not true; that's a mere
fancy sketch,” said Breckinridge, with
a laugh. “There’s not a word of truth
Wilson was particularly desirous of
knowing whether Breckinridge had
ever made any expressions of love and
offection to the plaintiff, and the de
fendant said that he had never used
such expressions to Miss Pollard.
“I did, however,” he said, “use ex
pression of kindliness”, and I was par
ticularly careful to he good and kind to
her when she was in delicate health. I
tried to make her take up some occu
pation and to keep her mind busy.
In answer to Judge Wilson the de
fendant said that he had told the plain
tiff many times that marriage between
them was impossible.
“I told her,” he said, “that she could
not expect me to marry her after her
illicit relations with Rhodes, and that
after she had bled Rhodes for three
years, and then thrown him away like
a sucked orange I could not contem
plate a marriage with her or look upon
her as a wife whom I could trust, or
whom 1 could take into my family.”
After questioning the witness about
his trip to New York in April, 1893,
when he was married, and his meeting
with the plaintiff at the Hoffman
house, Judge Wilson handed Colonel
Breckinride a paper, ad asked him if
that was a fac simile of marriage
Colonel Breckinridge said that it
looked like the original, but he saw it
“When you put down on this certifi
cate that you had been married once,
was that true?” he was asked.
“L started to write in answer to the
question as to how many times I had
been married, and I asked Dr. Paxton
if it were necessary to state that this
was my third marriage, and he said it
was not necessary, so I thoughtlessly
put it in once instead of twice.”
He filled in the certificate because Dr.
Paxton was suffering from nervous
headache, he said. He told Paxton to
keep it a secret. In answer to the
question he said he and his wife on the
night of their marriage went to the
hotel Lagreen, Eighteenth street and
Broadway, and registered under the
name of William J. Campbell and wife.
After Judge Wilson had made Colonel
Breckinridge say that Miss Pollard
went in the best society in Washing
ton; that she lived at most respectable
houses, and that her social standing
was of the best, he asked if there was
th n any social impediment to the mar
riage of plaintiff and himself, and
Colonel Breckinridge admitted that
there was nothing known to the world
that could act as an impediment.
Colonel Breckinridge ended his testi
mony after having been on the stand
almost continuously since Thursday.
This afternoon the defense may submit
some additional testimony, but it is
more likely that the rebuttal of the
plaintiff s evidence will begin, and
there is every indication that all the
evidence will be before the jury when
the court adjourns over on Friday until
Monday. The day was not sensational.

THE MAYOR TALKS AGAIN.
Speaks Plainly of Governor Tillman and
Ills Recent Address.
Darlington, S. C., April s.—Mayor
Dargan has made another statement
for publication, this one in rejoindePto
Governor Tillman's speech. He says,
among other things:
“There are one or two inaccurate
statements of his which I do not like to
pass over without correcting. He says,
speaking of the constables, that they
had been sent there because the mayor
had allowed them to be insulted and
cursed to their faces. If the governor
was so informed that I, as mayor, al
lowed that, his informant is a liar.
This is the first information I have
ever received of such a fact. He says
again two boys, mere stripplings, got
into a fight, and some fifty men, armed
to the teeth, went to the depot and
picked a quarrel with the constables,
and men on both sides were killed. I
don’t know who informed him of this
fact, but whoever did so just lied, and
knew he lied when he gave such infor
mation. Again he says the fault can
not be clearly placed and possibly never
will be known. As to that the gov
ernor is a very badly informed man if
he lays that flattering unction to his
soul, and I venture the prediction that
he will find the fault clearly placed,
and that it will be found that the con
stables simply did everything else but
TROOPS LEAVE DARLINGTON.
Unless Unforeseen Trouble Appears They
Will Break Camp Friday.
Columbia, S. C., April s,—The gov-
I ernor was called upon by three of the
citizens of Darlington, with whom he
talked over the situation in Darling
ton. No promises were made, but as a
result of the conference the troops now
in Darlington will be returned to their
homes Friday morning if the condition
of affairs there remains as tranquil as
it is apparently at present. The con
stables who were in the fight at Dar
lington have returned to that city to
testify at the inquest.
WALDO’S MIND RETURNS.
The Boston Charity Lecturer Receives a
Shock and Recovers Instantly.
Jacksonville, April 4. - Through a
shock, resulting from a fall, Edwin A.
Waldo, who has been missing from Chi
cago since Easter Sunday, has regained
his right mind.
Mr. Waldo is a charity lecturer from
Boston, and overworked himself re
cently in the west. Overwork brought
on an attack of congestion of the
brain, and the sufferer has no recollec
tion whatever of time, place or incident
since seeing the interior of St. James
church in Chicago. With the excep
tion of great lassitude, he is now doing
well in St. Luke’s hospital in this city.
