Much of the matter consisted of alleged praise of Mrs. Cleve- land with the idea of making a contrast to his (Mr Cleveland's) disadvantage. Cranks were sure to send Mrs. Cleveland clippings, and they an- noyed her very much. Mr. Cleveland said distinctly: "The old Hiief, Dana. 1ms not hesitated to drag my wife's name into his scurrilous attacks. A man who makes war on women is infamous."

A Republican Canons Docines to t.et tne Kiver Harbor Bill WASHINGTON, May after the adjournment of the house, the republican members assembled ill conference to endeavor to ascertain the feeling respecting the proper time to be allowed for debate m. tlie house upon the tariff bill, and reach an understand- ing that may be adopted as the policy of the party. Tho river and harbor bill managers made a Strenuous to have that appropriation bill made a. special order for consideration to the conclusion before the tariff bill is taken up, and Mr. Henderson, who is chairman of the committee on rivers and harbors, hy direction of that committee made a statement of reasons why it should be done. He pointed out the danger of the failure of the hill, 'through de- layed consideration, and offered a resolution setting apart Wednesday and T-liursday for upon the mil. Apparently a majority si the members could not be made to take his Hew of tlho matter, for it was decided rjy a yote of 90 to 19 that a.matter Inesday river and harbor men mafia another effort, this time seeking to have adopted a: special rale, providing forihe consideration of their bill immediately after final action upon tariff bill; but again- they were defeated. There was some talk about the, remaining business before congress, and it be- came evident that the geueral feet ing was that final adjournment coma uo reached about the middle of July- Members ol the committee' on nvers and harbors foel somewhat indignant over the manner in which their bill has been side- tracked. They appreciate the fact that unless early action is taken upon that measure it may fail by reason of a lack of time for due con- sideration by tlie senate. Yielding to the in- evitable, however, they are determined to press its consideration as soon as the taritt Di l is out of the way, and will antagonize all other legislation until tbe river and harbor bill is disposed of.

THIS .KEMTVIXEK CASK Before the United States Siipi-ecie Court on n Writ of Habeas WASHINGTON, May M. Sherman oday made an application in the United States upremccourttora writ of habeas corpus for veuuulcr. under sentence of death in New York by electricity, pursuant to the order of Wallace, of New York, directing that he hould make the application immediately. The court denied the application for a writ of habeas corpus, but informed Mr. Sherman that >u tl-e 191'ii of May the court would hear a mo- tion for a writ of error in the case, notice to be given the attorney-general of tho state. Ibis will permit tlio whole record to be brought here and tbe case aix'licd. The court follows the precedent established ill the Sp.es anar- chist casn. As the court adjourns for the term, on May lOtli, tho decision denying or granting the writ of error will lw announced almost im- mediately after the argument. The chief jr-stice, in denying the application for a writ, of habeas corpus, said that he did so inasmuch as a writ had been granted by Judge Wallace. Justice Blatchford then said that as Mr. Sherman had applied to hi-m in chambers, as a justice presiding over the circuit court, for a writ of error to the case here for review he would suggest that Mr. Sherman should make such an application before the full court, as was .lone in tho anarchist case. Mr Sherman said that ho would do this, and the court said it would hear the application at its next am! final session of the term, on May "'should the application bo denied, as was done in the anarchist case, it ends the case, but should it he granted, it simply defers for about a year the final disposition of the mat- ter, the case having to come up again ill a more extended form.

The governp accordingly respited the boy until May 9th, in order that a motion for a new trial might be made. THK GOVERNOa DENOUNCED. The people of Lexington, in mass mecthif denounced him for his action, and sent a doze of their prominent men to demand the retun of the prisonerand to be put in possession o all the papers filed iu the cose. Tlie governo refused to show the papers until the excite mcnt had abated, as'it was feared the lite o the person making the affidavit upon wind tho judge acted, and of the prison er's lawyer, might be taken. liavin" no power to send til prisoner back to Lexington, referred the del gation to the ju Igo, who, upon tlie members the committee signing a bond pledging them- selves for the safety of tbe prisoner, granted an order remanding Lepahart tojthe Lexington Tho principal complaint of tlie people Of that county had been that they had been doubted, and were not considered law-abiding men. Lepahart was taken back to Lexington just three -weeks ago. THE ASSAULT ON THE JAIL. Between one and two o'clock tills morrgng, a party of about fifty men dismounted ftom their horses at the jail door, nnd some of them knocked down the door of tiro I section of the build- ing occupied by the sheriff. He was covered by half a dozen revolvers, and the keys of the jail demanded, and these he at once surren- dered and the doors of tho jail, although secured by combination locks, the workings of which were supposed to be known only by the sheriff, were Boon opened and the party en- tered. 4. THE PRISONER SHOT DOWN. An attempt was made to bring Leaphart out- side and hang him, but the negro fought with desperation. He seized a bar or club tfiat was in his cell and knocked down several of the foremost men. The lynchcrs thereupon opened tire upon the prisoner with rifles and revolvers, and in a few minutes ho was rid- dled by over a hundred bullets. The party then left the jail, and this morning the streets were placarded, charging the governor and judge with the responsibility of the murder. IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN HAND.

Tbe Succession to Senator Becli. WASHINGTON, May the question who will succeed Senator Beck is under discussion- The general impression at first seemed-to be that ex-Speaker Carlisle would unquestionably be the man. He is con- siderod.the ablest man in Kentucky, and tlie ouef man above all others who is entitled to anything within.the gift of the people of his state However, i friend of Mr. Carlisle said today that he wanted to come back to the house. He) leels that he-can be of more service to his party in the lower house than in tbe senatefthat he would favor his friend, Repre- sentative K. Bieokinridge, the silver- tongued and silver-haired orator of Kentucky, for the senate. Representative McCreary, however, wants to go to the senate and ho, too, is very strong in Kentucky. Should Mr. Car- lisle not enter the race there will be a very lively scramble for the senatorship. However, in the event there is a candidate, his election is almost a certainty. Futtlug C> Carlisle for tbe Senate. LOUISVILLE, Ky., May Buck- ner, contrary to last night's announcement, to- day sent formal notice of Senator Beck's death to the legislature, and the election of a succes- sor will consequently take place on May 13th. A joint resolution of respect and regret was adopted bv the legislature. Governor Buck- ner is spoken of as a candidate to succeed Mr. Beck, but he has frequently said emphatically that he wants to serve his term as governor, and is uot seeking any other office. Congressman Brockinridgo, it is understood, will nSt be a candidate, nor will Lieuteuaut- Govenior Bryan.

A run began as soon as the placo opened. Shortly before 3 o'clock Vice-Presi- deht Chain, ot tho Trust company, appeared t and read the following to thirty or more de- positors who were in line at the time: "The board of directors, as at present advised. deem it for. the interest of all depositors that Montgomery Insurance, Trust and Safe Deposit company should suspend payment, and there- fore .announce that no more money wfll be paid. From an examination of the assets which has been made, we feel confident in saying that all, depositors will bo iraid in full, and that it is not likely that tlie company will sustain any loss. All; trust funds are seDarately invested and safely i secured." ASSoon as they heard this the depositors as- sembled went home confident that they would "et their money. The suspension tho Trust; company is due to unauthorized loans made by Treasurer William F. Slingluff. who resigned i Saturday and assigned his property to the; company. Slingluft .was also cashier of the. i Montgomery bank, an institution closely allied; to the Trust company, and there has been a! run on the bank today, which, however, ex- hausted itself about 2 o'clock.

Of the ..amount taken out of tho uaiilfc comprised'the regular monthly with- drawals of the. railroads. President Slingluff Eaid this evening that the trust company would resume as soon as possible. The directors were going to convert collateral into cash, and if favorable arrange- ments could be made they might rosuma within a day or two, or inside of a week at the latest. They had gone over the paper held by the bank and trust company, nud the loss would probably not be more than SJO.OOO, anil in no event not more than and a sur- plus ol amply secured every depositor. Sometime ago it was discovered by the di- rectors that the cashier and treasurer (Sling- luff) had borrowed on his own re- sponsibility. He secured the loans with what he considered ample security, but the company demanded, additional collateral, which waa furnished. The collateral is said to consist ot stock of the Philadelphia Finance company. the People's Railway company and the Amer- ican Life Insurance company, three institn- tiens in which the syndicate controlling tlia suspended bank of America, of Philadelphia, and the institution in New Jersey, which it carried down, are largely interested.
