COURT OF GENERAL ASSIZE.
EASTER TERM, 1889.
MONDAY, 1st April, 1889.
Divine service was held at the Parish Church,
Pembroke, at 11 a.m., the Rev Mark James preach-
ing the Assize sermon from Romans, ch. 13 v. 1.
The small attendance at the service was no doubt
due to the distance of the church from the Court
House, and the difficulty consequently experienced
by those who attend in getting back to Court to
answer to their names when called. This inconve-
nience will disappear with the completion of the
Nave of Trinity Church for service, an event likely
to be accomplished during the present year.
His Honour the Chief Justice and the Hons. J.
H. Trimingham and T. N. Dill came into Court
shortly after noon and the business of the session
was proceeded with.
On the Grand Jury being empanelled, J. D. M.
Godet, Esquire, was chosen foreman. The grand
jury were sworn, when one of the number objected
to taking the usual oath on conscientious grounds.
A doubt arising as to whether the provisions of
the Jurors Act, 1881, s. 2, allowing a juror to
make a solemn affirmation instead of being sworn,
apply to grand jurors, the juror in question was
challenged by the Attorney General, and another
called in his place, the foreman and other grand
jurors being resworn.
The Chief Justice briefly Tharged the grand jury
calling their attention to some of the facts con-
nected with two bills for murder which would be
laid before them, and recommending them to find
a true bill whenever a primdfacid case was made
out to their satisfaction leaving the case to be gone
into in detail before the petit jury in Court,
The Grand Jury found a true bill against
John Davids for an assault on Joseph Bendall,
occasioning actual bodily harm. The defendant
on being arraigned pleaded not guilty and was
placed on his trial before a jury. The case
was not concluded when the Court rose.
A true bill was also returned against Thomas
Lusher Rayner for obtaining goods under false
The Court stands adjourned to this (Tuesday)
morning at 10 o'clock.

R. B. Y. C. Race for the Visitors'
It having been intimated to the Commodore of
the R.B.Y.C., on Wednesday last, by some liberal
and sporting members of the New York Yacht Club
who were spending a few days among us, that they
desired to present a cup to be sailed for by yachts
of the R B Y C, the sailing committee very prompt-
ly organised a race for Tuesday the 26th inst, and
with equal promptitude the owners of nine yachts
responded to the call.
The morning looked unpromising, but as the
day advanced the weather improved and before the
hour for starting, 2 p m, all were agog with high
anticipations of much enjoyment. Nor were they
doomed to disappointment, for a prettier race or
more exciting finish has seldom been witnessed
With a Westerly wind and a good steady breeze,
the leeward stake boat was placed between Dar-
tell's and Port's Islands while the windward one
was not far from Leach Bay, thus making a good
three miles course with plenty of open water for
those who preferred it.
Eight out of the nine yachts which had been en-
tered came to the starting point, the Cara unfor-
tunately having been detained in St George's har-
bour by the strong morning breezes, and about
2.30 the Undine was sent away to be followed in
the course by Nautilus, Nameless, Dauntless, Em-
erald, Zephyr, Iris and Diamond, and with very
little variation they all followed their leader in
taking the So soother course ; the
Undine, as he ialwas very well sailed and
kept well ahead of her larger rivals, although some
of them, notably the Zephyr and Diamond, were
making up their time in very good style. The
Nautilus began very well and was noticed to be
outwinding most of her opponents, but alas, some-
thing happened to her boom and before the spli-
cing process could be accomplished she had drop-
ped astern considerably, a'io the Zephyr, Daunt-
less and Nameless all too her down in the first
turn, while the Emerald,Iris and Diamond fol-
lowed her round the windward goal; and now
came the run back. Alas the worst part of the
whole performance ; seven, with varying success,
essayed to set their spinnakers on the starboard
side, but none did it as skilfully as we should have
liked to have seen, one hardly succeeding at all,
and eventually housing her flowing sail, while the
Undine had the misfortune, when about half way
down, to carry away her spinnaker boom which
deprived her of the further use of that sail: the
Diamond alone gibed over her main boom on
rounding to windward and.Lpread her large white
gauze in true seaman-like fashion, on the port side
where it caught every f ivouring breath and car-
ried her rapidly on her course.
The Undine, notwithstanding the loss of l.er
running sail, still held a good lead on rounding for
the second turn up but was soon hotly pursued by
more than one of the larger craft; the Diamond
on luffing too did not make such a good show in
handling her spinnaker, something having got
foul she made a tack to windward and went about
before she could get it housed, and even then to
accomplish this she had to send two men aloft. But
when this difficulty was overcome she made great
speed and came rapidly on the leading boats. The
Dauntless, after rounding, went under the lee of
the small Island and stood well over to the north
before she came about, thus improving her position
very much, and surprising the lookers on (who had
generally lost sight of her) as well as her leading
competitors by giving them a good wipe when she
came back to them, but after trying a little flirting
with the Undine, who was more than her equal at
this game, she took another "gambol to the north-
ward and stood so far that she allowed the Undine,
Diamond and Zephyr all to. Iip past the winning
goal, and finished a most exciting and closely con-
tested race, just ahead of her.
All who had the good fortune to witness this
acquatic contest must have been highly gratified,
as until the last moment it was impossible to spot
the winner, 35 seconds only separating the first and

Bermuda Agricultural Association.
A meeting of the Committee of the Agricultural
Association was held at the Public Buildings,
Hamilton, on Friday, 29th March, when it appear-
ed that the subscriptions to the Exhibition fund so
far amounted to 130 7 0, but it was hoped and
anticipated that substantial additions would be
made thereto during the next fortnight so as to
enable the Committee to carry out the proposed
It was determined to hold the Exhibition in
Mount Langton grounds, on Thursday the 25th
and Friday, the 26th April, commencing at noon
of the former day and closing at 6 p. m., and con-
tinuing from 11 a. m. to 5 p. m. of the latter day.
Admission, on the first day, 2/ to 3 p. m. and I/
after that hour; on the second day, to 1 p. m. 1/,
after that hour 3d.
The sub-Committee were authorised to provide,
on the best terms, shed and other accommodation
in which exhibits might be protected and dis-
It was decided that exhibitors of live stock, &c.,
should be requested to notify the Secretary in writ-
ing on or before Saturday, 20th April, of their in-
tention to exhibit, specifying the class and number
of their proposed exhibits, in order that space may
be assigned and they may receive tickets to entitle
them thereto. Live stock and articles intended for
Exhibition will be admitted on the morning of the
25th April, up to 10 a. m.
The Secretary was authorized to insert an adver.
tisement in the newspapers inviting tenders for the
privilege of having the monopoly of supplying re-
freshments (exclusive of alcoholic drinks) within
the Exhibition grounds.
The meeting was then adjourned to Thursday

Berdmua Hunt Club Steeplechase.
The above came off on the afternoon of the
29th, in the presence of a large number of in-
terested spectators. The entries were as follows:
Owner Horse Rider Order of com. in
Mr Burrows b g Leo, owner 0
Lt Reynolds R E b g Boy, Do. 1
Col Sandford R E b m Stella Do. 2
Mr Chambers b m Lady Cavendish o
Mr. Barritt's ch g Venture was entered but
did not come to the post.
At four o'clock the four competitors came to
the post in the field north of Langton Fort, and
were started at the first attempt by Capt. Gall-
wey, A.D C.
His Excellency Lieut-Genl. Newdegate, C.B.,
who was with Mrs Newdegate on the ground
kindly officiated as judge.
The first fence, a fairly stiff four foot wall
was cleared in capital style although Leo can-
noning against the Boy very nearly brought
the career of the latter to on untimely end.
The second fence was taken in the following
order. Lady Cavendish, Leo, the Boy, Stella,
but the three first immediately afterwards went
the wrong side of one of the flags and having to
hark back to retrieve their mistake, let Stella
go to the front for a time. Lady Cavendish and
Leo erelong overhauled her and on repassing
the starting field on their course westward the
winner of the Bermuda Hunt Cup was again
in front, Leo second. At the jump in front of
Bleak House the Boy came up to Stella and
passed her and no change in the order of the
horses took place during the passage of the next
mile of the course. The post and rail, fence in
the valley below Sea View Cottage nearly gave
Stella a fall, but she managed to smash the rails
and to pick herself up without damage. At the
third fence from this, a wall into the valley run-
ning up between AEola and Watlington, Lady
Cavendish overjumped herself, and then bolted
with her rider across the valley and came to
grief over a low wall, scarcely visible in the
underwood, over which she fell, throwing her
rider. The other three went on without mishap
or change of relative position until the turn
down hill towards the North Road under Sea

.The New Bermuda-Halitax Cable.
The announcement made on Thursday by the
British Postmaster General that the government in-
tended to lay a submarine cable between Bermuda
and Halifax will be good news to all Atlantic sea-
men and all American and European meteorolo-
Bermuda is a natural observatory for watching
hurricanes emerging from the tropical ocean and
threatening to assail the United States, or to advance
northeastwardly from the Gulf Stream into trans-
atlantic steamer tracks, and subsequently to burst
upon thesbores of Europe. Of course an observer at
Bermuda cannot see with the naked eye what a
Gulf Stream storm is doing or determine by ocular
demonstration what its course will be. But by
watching the fluctuations of the barometer at this
mid-Atlantic station and by reporting them by
cable to America and Europe meteorologists on
either continent will be enabled to feel the pulse of
the storm, and to determine more accurately its
intensity and its future movements. For purposes
of weather and storm forecasting in our Atlantic
States, therefore, weather cablegrams from Ber-
muda will be invaluable.
Bnt if the interests of Atlantic navigation be
consulted maritime nations should co-operate in
an attempt to form a network of ocean weather ob-
servations both to the northwest and southwest of
Bermuda. From Bermuda to Halifax is seven hun-
dred and fifty nautical miles. This requires quite
a long stretch of cable. A floating observatory
could be anchored on the southeastern side of the
Great Newfoundland Bank in thirty fathoms of
water and connected with the telegraph system at
Cape Race by a cable only two hundred miles long.
With a telegraph station on the Great Bank-very
near the main transatlantic tracks of steamers-it
would be easy to obtain intelligence of the move-
ments of Atlantic storms on both sides of the oceans
Moreover, all vessels crossing the Atlantic could be
warned from such an observatory of the progress
of dangerous storms and the movements of ice fields
and icebergs in the main highways of ocean com.
The time is ripe for some international effort to
be made to secure to the merchant marine the ad.
vantages of storm and ice warnings, which can on-
ly be done by the establishment of mid-ocean ob-
servatories. It is to be earnestly hoped that the
International Marine Conference, which meets at
Washington this year, will take up this subject.-

VICTORIA AND CHRISTINA.
SAN SEBASTIAN, March 27.-Queen Victoria paid
her expected visit to San Sebastian to-day. Her
Majesty was accompanied by Prince and Princess
Henry of Battenberg and members of her suite,
including Lady Churchill. Sir Francis Ford, the
British Ambassador at Madrid, and representatives
of the Queen Regent Christina met the royal visi-
tor at Irun, on the frontier, where a train was
waiting to convey Her Majesty to San Sebastian.
Upon the arrival of the train here, the Queen
was greeted with salvos of artillery from the
Lemotta citadel and volleys from the troops that
lined the route to the Royal Castle. The Queen
Regent, accompanied by the Duchess of Bailen and
the Countess Sastago, was waiting at the station,
together with numerous officials and deputations.
The Queen of England, upon alighting from the
train, kissed Christina on both cheeks.
After mutual presentations, including the intro-
duction of Prime Minister Sagasta to Victoria, the
two Queens entered a state carriage and drove to
the castle, attended by a brilliant military escort.
As the royal carriage passed between the long
lines of troops on either side of the roadway the
military bands played the national anthem and the
populace cheered enthusiastically.
In a second carriage were Prince and Princess
Henry of Battenberg, while five others were oc-
cupied by Spanish officials and the members of
Queen Victoria's suite.
Luncheon was served at the castle, and shortly
before eleven o'clock the whole party re-entered
the carriages and were driven to the Town Hall,
where a sumptuous throne had been erected. Here
Victoria formally received the Mayor of the town.
Her Majesty afterward witnessed a series of Bas-
que dances and games in the square from the win-
dows of the Town Hall, and was heartily cheered
when she appeared upon the balcony after the en-
tertainment was concluded. From the Town Hall
the party drove to the railway station, where Vic-
toria and Christina exchanged affectionate adieux.
At the last moment, however, the Queen Regent,
with her suite, entered Victoria's carriage and ac.
companies Her Majesty to Irun, where farewells
were again exchanged.

It is not known when screws were first made
and brought into use. The tirstinstance known
of machinery bieng applied to the making, of
screws was in Frandce, in 1569, by a man nam-
ed Bessqn, who contrivedascrew-cutting gauge
to be used in a lathe. The early method had
been to make the heads by pressingthe blanks
while redhot between dies, and then to form
the threads by the process of filing. In 1741
Besson'd device was improved by Hindley, a
watch-maker, of York, and for a long time'the
watch-makers of England: employed the latter's
method.in making the. small screws used in
their work. The first English patent appears
to have been issued to Job and William Wyatt,
in 1760, for three machines-one for making
blanks, another for nicking the heads, and a
third for cutting the threads. Between that
date and 1840 about ten patents were issued,
only one of which is.worthy of notice- namely,
that of Miles Berry, dated January .28, 1837,
which was for a gimlet-pointed screw.

THE STORY OF PIGOTT'S LIFE.
The story of Pigott's life has been to a very large
extent told by himself in the witness-box, and if
he had had theassurance to stand the fire of Sir
Charles Russell's cross-examination several chap.
ters which are now missing would no doubt.have
been added. He was born 51 years ago, and at
an early age he entered on a career of journalism
and duplicity. He became proprietor of the Irish-
man in 1865, and was soon after sworn in as a
member of the Fenian Brotherhood. In Febru-
ary, 1868, he won the martyrs' crown by being
sentenced to 12 months' imprisonment, subsequent-
ly reduced to six, for publishing an article on the
Manchester executions; and soon afterwards he
gained further distinction by four months' impris-
onment for contempt of court. Journalism was too
exciting for him, and in 1879 he opened negotiat-
ions for the sale of his paper, which ultimately
passed into the hands of Patrick Egan. About the
time of the disposal of the Irishman Pigott wrote
the piteous appeals to Mr Forster for monetary
assistance of which we have heard so much. The
most generous and unsuspecting of men, Mr Fors-
ter was easily imposed upon, and he made Pigott
several advances from his private purse, and prom-
ised to introduce him to Mr Knowles, the editor
of the .Nineteenth Century. When at last the
stream of Mr Forster's charity ceased to flow, the
grateful Pigott turned round upon him and sav-
agely abused him. About this time ffacmillaan's
Magazine published an article bearing Pigott's sig-
nature, in which he endeavored to justify the then
common argument that the Land Act of 1881 had
left Ireland nothing more to wish for. His next
public appearance was in the Contempary .Review of
April, 1883, when he denounced what he called the
"Land League Fenian Invincible Confederacy."
In June, 18L5, he contributed an article on the
Parnellite Programhe to the Fortnightly Review,
the object of which vas to excite distrust of Mr
Parnell in Ireland. -Pigott next played the part
of the forger, foisting upon the Times, as the pro.
ductions of Mr Parnell and others, letters which
he subsequently confessed to have fabricated.
After forgery, perjury was easy. His suicide has
been a tragic end to a singularly dramatic episode,
Remarkable Scene in a Church. -An extraordinary
scene was witnessed in the Catholic Church of St
Peter and St Paul at Clonmel, Ireland, on Sunday,
March 3. It appears that the Catholic soldiers of
the garrison attend Mass there every: Sunday
morning, and whilst the officiating priest, Father
Byrne, was reading the Bishop's Lenten pastoral,
in which he strongly condemned the action of the
Government towards Ireland, and adjured the peo-
ple to pray for their country in this time of trouble,
Lieutenant Geohegan, who was in charge of the
troops, rose in his seat, and ordered his men to

The Wonders of the Camera."-The wonders of
photographic art will never cease. According to a
correspondent a well-known artist of the camera
was called in lately to photograph the body of a
young lady who had just died under peculiar and
distressing circumstances. The body was laid out
on a sofa in the drawing room, and presented a
singularly beautiful spectacle. The photographer
was left alone in the room with the body, and took
a negative. After inspecting it he was not satis-
fied that the exposure had been sufficient, and he
took another. And then, to his amazement, he
discovered 1 hat the two negatives were not alike.
The body must have moved. Not having lost quite
all his nerve by this extraordinary occurrence, he
took a third negative, which was exactly like the
second. He instantly summoned the nurse who
had been in attendance on the deceased girl, and,
after some difficulty and delay, had the doctor
fetched. To cut a long story short, the young
lady. was not dead at all, but is at this moment
convalescent. This is a true story.
Death of a Noted Man-Dr W H Monk, the emi-

not long incapacitated from the active pursuit of
his profession. He was at St Matthias', Stoke
Newington, where he had for some years superin-
tended the Musical service, so lately as February
24, having the day previous attended the perform--
ance in the metropolis of Dr Hall's degree exer-
cise." As the Professor of Music at King's Col0-
lege, London, his name was very familiar. His
services as an organist were in great request, but
besides his ability as an executant, and the heavy
claims of teaching upon his time, he was an in-
dustrious composer of Church masic in its varying
forms. It is, however, in connection with the
hymnal-which in its day may be said to have
effected a species of revolution-that the musical
skill of Dr William Henry Monk will be best re-
An Incident of the Times Commission.-An amus-
ing illustration of the absorbing extent to which
recent occurrences in the Commission Court occupy
the public mind was afforded by an incident in the
House of Commons smoking-room during the pro-
gress of the debate on February 27. A few mem-
bers present agreed that each new-comer who
mentioned the subject of Richard Pigott should be
called upon to pay a small fine. As member after
member entered, invaribly commencing conversat-
ion by a reference to Mr Pigott, there was a shout
of laughter. When the joke was explained, the
successive victims cheerfully acquiesced and joined
heartily in the amusement at the expense of those
who followed them. About 40 members in all
were thus penalised for gratuitously introducing
the name of the famous Times witness.

SHORT SERMONS FOR BOYS.
Most boys and girls do not like sermons-they
say they are too long for their highnesses. Per-
haps they may like these short sermons. They
will give food to think over, and must not be
read too hastily.
A Swedish boy fell out of a window and was
badly hurt, but with clenched lips he kept back
the cry of pain. The King, Gustavus Adolphus,
who saw him fall, prophesied that the boy
would make a man for an emergency. And so
he did, for he became the famous General Bauer.
A boy used to crush the flowers to get their
color, and painted the white side of his father's
cottage in Tyrol with all sorts of pictures, which
the mountaineer gazed at as wonderful. He
was the great artist Titian.
An old painter watched a little fellow who
amused himself making drawings of his pot
and brushes, easel and stool, and said: That
boy will beat me one day." So he did, for he
was Michael Angelo.
A German boy was reading a blood-and-thun-
der novel. Right in the midst of it he said to
himself: Now this will never do, I get too
much excited over it. I can't study so well
after it. So here goes!" and he flung the book
out into the river. He was Fichte, the great
Do you know what these little sermons mean?

A TARTAR BREAKFAST.
I went into one of the stone-built recesses, whlre
several of our Tartars were crouching round a
small grass-root fire, and was considerably edified
by watching them cooking and despatching their
morning repast. To begin with, a very dirty cop-
per vessel was put on the fire and filled with some
green weed like nettles, barley, flour, and water.
While one of the men stirred this pottage round
and round with a wooden ladle another produced
some raw meat-a bit of the dog I haa shot. This
he proceeded to tear up into small strips andthrow
them on the fire, every now and then' popping a
raw lump into his mouth and masticating it with
the greatest apparent gusto. Even. the bits on the
fire were quickly disposed of after 'being merely
As soon as the pottage was considered ready' it
was ladled out into little wooden cups, Ilike the
whiskey '* quaighs of the. Highlands, minus the
handles, which each man produced from inside the
breast of his dirty woolen coat, and gulped up
from them with a prodigious amount: of noise.
After being replenished again and again until the
pot was emptied, the cups were carefully licked
clean and redeposited from whence they had been
taken. Another course of flesh was about to be
partaken of after the manner of the first, but a re,
gard for my own appetite for breakfast prevented
my waiting to see it discussed. These hardy Tar-
tars are quite independent of any other dishes be-
yond their little wooden bowls. In these they mix
their suttoo (meal made from barley) with a little
water and salt, and make an expeditious repast of
if whenever they feel hungry. Indeed, this kind
of uncooked porridge seems to be their staple food.
THE SAILOR AT THE PLAT.-A strange scene was
witnessed in a Birmingham concert hall a few
weeks ago. A dramatic sketch was in progress, in
the course of which a sailor who has returned from
abroad with a quantity of diamonds in his possess-
ion, is enticed into an inn, and, after being mur.
dered and robbed, his body is thrust through a trap
into the sea. When it came to murder, a young
sailor who was sitting in the body of the hall rush-
ed from his place towards the stage, declaring that
he would not see a comrade- robbed and murdered.
The fireman and threat pther officials who tried to
hold back the sympathetic tar were floored one
after another, and it was only after four policemen
had come to the rescue that Jack was prevented
getting at the stage robbers. He was perfectly
sober, and had returned from a long sea voyage the

and North Water streets, with its valuable store
of teas and coffees, was burned to the ground
this morning, entailing a loss of about $1,500,000.
The great Galena grain elevator of Munger,
Wheeler & Co. and other adjacent buildings
had a narrow escape. The walls of the ware-
house fell upen the engine room of the elevator,
crushing it like an eggshell.
The building was a six story brick structure,
which cost $50,000.
The manager of the warehouse, Alderman
Manniere, thinks the fire was of incendiary
origin, because there was nothing in that por-
tion of the building in which it originated to
cause it, and because this is the third mysterious
fire which has occurred there within a year.
There were about forty thousand cases of tea
in bond, as it was a government warehouse, and
a few thousand packages of coffee and other
miscellaneous articles belonging to firms all over
A statement of the Deputy Collector to the
effect that all the tea had passed out of the
hands of the government officers and had been
taken out at first created a sensation, but Mr
Mauiere explained later that while it had passed
out of their hands it was still in the warehouse.

Bright, M. P., died peacefully at half-past eight

Hon. William H Smith, the government leader,
with much emotion, referred to the death of Mr
John Bright- He said that he would postpone

Gladstone would be present.
Mr Morley thanked Mr Smith for his consider-
ation in regard to Mr Gladstone.

Bright's face. Political deputations will follow

ed to the meeting in the house.
THE GREAT MAN'S CAREER.
John Bright, the greatest English orator of his
generation, was born November 16, 1811, in the
village of Greenbank, near Rochdale.
He came of a family which belonged to the So.
ciety of Friends, and during his life he remained a
member of that religious bjdy and an advocate of
its ethical ideas.
His first appearance as a publicist was as a tern -
perance' speaker. He was not a great orator at the
beginning of his career and his first public address
did not impress those who heard it.
In the great free trade agitation which recked
England for seven years, Bright and Cobden went
throughout the breadth of the land and raised the
storm that swept away the policy of protection.
They led the workmen and the commercial class
of England and the peasantry of Ireland against
Cobden was the debater of the movement; Bright
the orator. Cobden convinced the understanding
of the people; Bright aroused their indignation
and their enthusiasm.
SIn April, 1843, Bright was an Anti-Corn Law
.candidate for a seat in Parliament for the city of
Durham, and was defeated
A few months later he again stood as a candi-
date. He sat for Durham till 1847, when he was
elected for Manchester.
His first Parliamentary speech was in favor of
a motion to extend the principle of free trade, and
until the Irish famine made protection no longer
possible, he was one of the able and courageous
minority that advocated free trade in the House
He was friendly to the welfare of India, and in
a great speech moved the appointment of a com-
mission to inquire into its condition.
In 1854 Mr Bright took part in a Quaker meet-'
ing which sent a peace deputation of Quakers to
the Emperor Nicholas to try to prevent war be-
tween Russia and England.
He opposed the Crimean War, and soon after it
broke out he was prostrated by a severe nervous
illness which turned his raven black hair as white
as snow, and from which he never wholly recov-
In 1857 Mr Bright was defeated in the Liberal
city of Manchester, owing to his opposition to
A few months later Birmingham returned him
to Parliament, and he continued to sit for that city
for a quarter of a century.
In 1866 he visited Ireland, and at a banquet in
Dublin made a speech which was a splendid vindi-
cation of the Irish people, from whose views he
strangely departed in his latter years.
In both Mr Gladstone's Cabinets Mr Bright held
office as Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster,
with a salary of #10,000 a year.
In the dark hours of the American civil war,
when the friends of the North were a minority in
England, Bright and Cobden faced unpopularity
to advocate the cause of the American Union to

He was twice married-in 1839 to a beautiful

and in 1847 to Margaret Leatham.
EGAN WORKED IT.
Without him Pigott would not have so com-
pletely broken down.-I called upon Mr.
Labouchere to-day and asked him whether the
stories discrediting the discovery by Mr. Egan
of forgeries published by the Times had any
foundation. Mr. Labouchere replied that the
proof that the forged letters had been written
by Pigott was entirely due to Mr. Egan. That
gentleman had fortunately left the drafts of
certain letters written by him to Pigott. Egan
sent these drafts, together with the Pigott
letters, to Labouchere during the discussion of
the Royal Commission bill.
He at once showed them to Sir Charles Rus-
sell and to Mr. Parnell and subsequently to Mr.
George Lewis when he was engaged as solicitor
in the case. The draft letters conclusively
showed that the forgeries could have been
written by Pigott and by no other man, for
many phrases-in one instance three consecu-
tive lines which were in the drafts-reappeared
in the forgeries. One of Egan's letters to Pigott
had been published in the Freeman when it
was written. Before the arrival of Mr. Egan's
documents in London there had been a vague
idea that very possibly Pigott was the forger,
but this idea was based upon nothing definite,
and "had we not had the Egan documents it
is very improbable that his authorship of the
forgeries would have been brought home to
Subsequently we learned that Houston had
offered his letters to Lord Hartington and to
the Pall Mall Gazette, and we subpoenaed him,
but if we had not also subpoenaed Pigott at the
same time it is possible that Houston would
have said that he was pledged not to disclose
several of the names of persons from whom he
bought the letters, leaving it to be inferred that
the persons were more reliable than Pigott,
whose bad character was a matter of no-
Lord Harting.ton's Confidence.-LONDON,
March 22.-Lord Hartington, in an address
before the Council of the liberal unionists to-
day, said that the home rulers, need not hope
to reverse the judgment given by the people at
the last general election. "The rancor shown
by its opponents dispelled the suggestion that
the liberal unionist party was decaying.
Germany's Penal Law. -BERLIN, March 24.-
The new Penal bill, according to the news-
papers, is much briefer than the anti-Socialist
law which it replaces. It tends to remove the
distinction hitherto held regarding Social De-
mocrats, provides for a more stringent dealing
with political crimes and insults to the sove-
reign, abolishing permanent expulsion by mere
police authority, and provides for short or long
expulsion, after trial for, attacks on the founda-
mental bases of the State organization and the
monarchy or on the sanctity of marriage and
The most important new provision authorises
the permanent interdiction of periodicals and
papers guilty of offenses against the law, and
the dissolution of societies and meetings. It is
stated that the bill will be discussed secretly
by the Bundesrath, and that it wili be submitted
to the Reichstag before Easter.
Attacking Mr. Webster.-LONDON, March
24.-Mr. Lew is, solicitor for the Parnellites,
writes to call attention to an amazing and
important misstatement" with reference to
Pigott which was made by Attorney-General
Webster in the House of Commons Friday last.
He says that the letter referred to by Mr.
Webster as having been placed in Sir Charles
Russell's hands five days before Pigott's appear-
ance in the witness box was a letter from Mr.
Soames, solicitor for the Times, to Pigott, and
that two other letters, from Pigott to Mr.
Soames, in which Pigott admitted that he
feared to undergo a cross-examination, were
withheld by the Times's lawyers. Mr. Lewis
says it is a fact that neither the counsel nor
the solicitor for the Parnellites had notice of
the existence of these two letters until Pigott
