DEAD ON THE WITNESS STAND. TUB 6TBANOE AND ROMANTIC OAEEEB OF COL. JOHN 8. DTDK. MONTREAL, March trsgio scene was witnessed la tbo Court of Queen's Beaoli this morning during tbe trial of John 8. Dydo, of tbo firm of Eckeradorff Dyde. for uttarlnn forjfed notes. Tbo trial has been going on for some days and has excited the keenest Interest among business man, who look upon Dyde as almost an Imbecile and tho tool of bis partner, who cleared out after forglne notes by the bushel and getting Dydo to utter them. Too defense rests entirely on the simplicity of the junior partner, and Col. Drde. K. C. 31. O., father of tbe accused man. was called to testify to hla son's lack of business ability. He had only an- swered iwoorehnxj questions wben. In referring to his eon as the prisoner at the bar, he suddenly gasped for breath and, putt I tig bis band to his lorchend. fell back dead. Dr. Mount, who irai In court, made an examination and announced to Judge KaroBiiy that !Ke was extinct. Tbe prlEOdCr. whu had drawn buck In tho dock when Ills father called, burst Into tears when bo FUW tho latter lall. but apparently did not realise the position of affalrx. Tho Judre, who la a warm admirer of Col. Dydo, inado a touch- ing address on tho noble qualities of the deceased KL-ntleman and hla services to the country. Ho ttien In a broken voice declared tbo court Dd- Journed till the aftoruoun. The body was re- moved to tha Grand Jury room, to which thu prisoner wag afterward taken, and a heartrending scene ensued. On the LMiard found him cling- ing to tho dead body of bis father, and It was with dlmculty ho was removed to tho cells. In the afternoon the case was resumed, and the Judge ohnracU the Jury utronply against tho prisoner, saying that no sensible man could believe but that he was guilty. The charge was exccedlnttly violent, and even cruel. The Jury returned to court at U o'c-1 jck, and, being unable to agree upon a verdict, wore locked up for tho night. Col. Dydo was wstbln a few days of 00 yfars of age ujd was tbo oldest officer In the Canadian militia. Ho used to say tnat ho did not kuow which country bo owed allegiance to, as bis fa- ther was Irish, his mother Scotch, and ho was born In Denmark, under tho French flug. tho French Army having taken tbo town a few hours before he was born. His parents bad formerly resided in Paris, where hlsrathor was arrested br Hobosnlerro and abut up In tbe Bastille. Ho escaped and fled to Altona where bis wife Joined him. a short time before tbo French entered tho town. His mother managed to escape from Altona to Hamburg, disguised as ft sailor, with her child concealed In a basket ot clothes. After some time Air. Dyde managed to escape from Paris and rejoin his wife and child, and shortly after they reached EnRland. One of Col. Dydo'a earliest remembrances wag of Napoleon Bonaparte, whom bo saw during this period of bis life. A few years saw the little family in No w-York, and the breaking out of tbo war of 1812 again In- volved them In difficulties. Mr. Dyde would not sign tbe declaration of loyalty to the United States, and BO was forced to leave New- Pork for Uoston. whcro loyalty to tho United States was not Insisted upon so arbitrarily. While In Doston Col. Dyde saw tho famous soa light between tba Shannon and tho Chesapeake, when Lawrence met bis fate. They then camo ou to Quebec, and when the Americans Invaded Canada, Dydo shouldered a musket for the ile- fcnae of tho country. He was out Hijuln In tbo rebellion of 1837, at ench of tbo Fenian raids, and in tho Red Hlver expedition, when Kiel raised tbo first rebellion. A fow years aero be was ap- pointed atdo-de-camp to tho Queen asahpeclal mark of favor. Ho was almost tho nnly full Col- onel In tho Canadian service and one of tho most efficient and popular officers. Ho will be burled on Tuesday afternoon with Jlasonlo honors. OPPOSED 1O TORONTO, March a large mooting worklngmen held berg to-night it was de- cided to petition tbo Dominion Government to increase tbo tax on every Chinaman who lands In Canada to and also to discontinue tbo granting of certificates to Chinamen to re- turn to Canada after onco leaving tljo country. This action was taken at tho request of tho worklnjrmcn of British Columbia, where tbo country Is being swamped with Chinamen and tho labor market there la rapidly becom- ing demoralized. It wns shown at a meeting here to-ulgbt that Cblnamon have been cheating Canadian. Government authorities for some years past br thoir cunning manner of utilizing return certificates granted to them by tho Do- minion Government. These certificates, which are granted m order to allow thorn to return to Canada if they wish after China, have, in hundreds of cases been fraudulently retained by Chinamen who eluded tho vlallaoco of the Government agents at British Columbia and sent tbe certificates back to China by mall to other Chinamen to onablo them to secure free landing Iu thin country. Many certificates havo In this way been used to admit Cblnamon to land free in Canada.

THE DEFICIENCY AND EDUCA- TIONAL BILLS PASSED. MB. 8PHINQEB WANTS TO TORN OUT THE RASCALS THB NEW BKCORDEB Off' AMD PRESIDENT. WASHINGTON, March was not many months ago that Mr. Springer, of Illinois, wsa engaged in a very earnest effort to prevent tho President from keeping out of office one Judge Vincent, who had been summarily suspended for distinguishing ex-Senator Steve" Dorsey by choosing him as a Commissioner to draw jurors In New-Mexico. Tho President did not fibaro with the suspended Judge and Mr. Springer the Idea that tho act was one of no consequence. Ho turned Mr. Bprlng- er'a man out; yet Mr. Springer now thinks tbat tbe President does not practice celerity enough In gettlug rW of rascals. Plain- ly enough be discriminates la favor of Demo- cratic rascals. Hla vlowa wero mada known In the course of a debate this afternoon upon tbo Urgent Deficiency bill, a bill thrown rapidly to- gether to enable tbe Government to meet somo unforeseen expenditures and containing among Its Items one for to pay for tbe arma- ments of tbe four now cruisers now being com- pleted. Mr. Durnos, ot Missouri, explained the features of the measure and gave gome Informa- tion about tbe guns for tbe new ships, a large proportion of them being woll advanced toward completion. Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, one of the Republicans of the House who la constantly oa the alert to make political capital of a cheap sort. Indulged in gome criticisms of the Navy Department for making tbe armament cost more than originally estimated. Mr. Springer, evidently is not quite pleased with tbo re- jection of hla negro candidate for Recorder of Deeds, and who baa an idea that tbe Navy Depart- ment baa not been run in a proper Democratic fashion, talked about Its being filled with men are obstructing tho Secretary In bis work, and tnon be wanted to say. and old gay, that If tbe Administration was derelict In anything, It was In its slowness In turning tho rascals out." For tbat reason be desired to see unworthy offi- cials Inherited by Mr. Whitney from his prede- cessors turned out and honest Democrats put In. Mr. Hewitt objected plainly to the ex- penditure of money for any purpose In exceed of appropriations, regarding such disregard of law as Indefensible in any Administration, and be expressed the opinion tbat it waa the duty of every friend of tho Administration to point out evory violation of the law. Tne bill passed by a vote of 829 to 20. It appropriates Oy tbe overwhelming vote of 86 to 11 the Sen- ate late tbla afternoon anally passed tho Blair Educational bill, which bad taken up Its time lor weeks. Numerous amendments were made to tbo measure as It was originally reported, but its substantial features wore unchanged. Tbe opposition Included the two Kansas Senators, tho two Texas benators, Mr. Cookrell of Mls- eourl. tbo two Maine Senators, Mr. Gray of Del- aware. Mr. Harris of Tennessee, Mr. Jones of Nevada, and Mr. Wilson of Maryland. Mr. Sherman failed to answor whon bla name was called. Messrs. Everts and Miller -were recorded in favor of the bill. Twen- ty Republicans and IB Democrats voted for tho Dill, and six Democrats and five Repub- licans votod airalngt It. The probability of its passing in tbe House Is very great. If it ob- tained tbo solid vote of tbe States which were to-day recorded favorably in tbe Senate It would have a majority of more than two to one.

Matthew 8, ot Albany, to bo Recorder of Deeds to succeed Frederick Douglass disappoints a number of District candidates who were hungry for the honors and tho income tbat goes with tbe place. Democrats generally regard the appoint- ment as a good one politically, Southern men, would not bo glad to havo colored meu named for such high offices in their States, ad- mit that the Liewaof tbo appointment will go lar toward assuring the colored men of tbe South of tbe friendliness of the Administra- tion toward their race. Even Mr. William. Dlckson. tho author of the home men" plank iu tbo Chicago platform, said, wben asked Bla opinion: "I Dave been asked my opinion a hun- times to-day, and I have Bald every time that 1 am a lifelong Democrat and I am for tbe Administration." Recorder Douglass, wben what no knew of bis successor, said: 1 know Mr. Matthews to bu a Kentleuiau and a scholar. I havo nothing to complain of, for President Cluvoland bad treated me witb tbo Utmost courtesy. I am not iu a complain- ing mood, but rather tho reverse, for I Bhall leave tbo office in a very efficient condition, for which 1 think Col. Scbajer is entitled to the credit. There baa already been some talk of antagonizing the nomination of Mr. Matthews in too Senate, but I do not expect tbat It will be serious, and 1 am quite certain tbat I will not oe a party to any such proceeding." Whon asked if there was any truth In tho report that be Intended to go to Europe, Mr. Douelase replied: "1 have bean thinking of going to Europe on a visit for eome time, and will tako a trip abroad whoa I have made my arrangements." A member of Mr. Douglass's larally told a reporter T .t ..iu waa worth trom to S4.600 ar U- now pending in Congroas provide- uo1 ji fees and allows tho Recorder i ui.'r a rear. Friends of Senator Ransom aro atlli disposed to resent tbo Indirect Insinuations against him made by Mr. Klddleberger In his clumsy attack upon certain private secretaries of Senators on Wednesday and retracted in an equally clumsy way yeslerdiiy. No responsible bonator who knows Mr. Ransom, they bay, would ever tbluk of accusing him of having anything to do wltb lobby Into, and tbey denouucu ibe Virginia Sen- ator roundly tor hiviug said anything which would glvo color to any contrary Senator Ransom la generally credited by bis col- leagues as occupying a very different level in tbe Senate from that of Mr. Uiddlebonior, and in nothing, bis friends say. Is this difference more marki-'l than In tho views of the two Sen- ators upon the subject of tbe use of Intoxicating drinks. Mr. Rtdalebergor's offer to strike out ol the LiiiiQriiutwnal titan d such of bis remarks as were regarded as offensive, and bis disclaimer of any Intention to otlend tbe North Carolina Sen- ator will, however, be regarded as the best be could do under the circumstances, and the mat- ter will probably bo dropped. It is understood that the namo of tho particular private secre- tary wbo aroused Mr. Kiddluburger's Iro will not appear iu tbe list of secretaries to bo printed In tho next week, aa the card entitling him to admission to tbe floor is no longer in nls pos- session. f From au almost unquestionable source It la learned tbat Senator Stanford, of California. U manifesting some uneasiness about the adhe- siveness of tbe distinguished ttev. Dr. Newman to him in tbe efforts of. the learned clergyman to secure the position of Pastor to the Metropolitan Church in tbls city. Tha Baltimore Conference la sitting Lere and IB about to make appoint- ments. It boa boen noised about that Senator Suntord was exerting himself to make Dr. Newman's appointment sure, but at tbe Bamo timo tne Senator, although he bad attended tbe Metropolitan Church, has recently taken a Dow at M. John's Protestant Episcopal Cburcb aud Intends to occupy it. Among the reportdabout tuis matter Is ono to the effect that Dr. Newman ta. been confident that ho could, as tbe bolder 01 u prominent place here, materially advance the iiilereKs of Senator Stanford as a Presiden- tial candidate, although Mr. Stanford boa declared that ho has no aspirations In the illmcflon of tho Presidency. The people of tho Metropolitan Church have boon given to understand that If Dr. Newman Is called to tho pastorate tbe chuion will receive substantial aid, from Senator Stanford. Thla tbo Senator's friends assort to be a totally unwarranted aiuur- ancc, and they aro making an effort to disabuse the minus of ull persons wbo have boen led to build blgb hopes whon basking !u the favor of tbe millionaire Senator. V Having taken a wcAk In which to digest the contents of President Cleveland's special mes- sage explaining bla views of tbe rights and privileges of bis office, and to map out the course bo proposes to pursue In tbe Senate. Mr. Edmunds called up, just before tbe Senate ad- journed to-night, the report of tbe Judiciary Committee relative (o the Duakln ease. By thu action, tbe matter will oome up as un- Untsbed business when tbe Senate meets again on Monday, and tbe debate which has been awaited with so much Interest will then betrJn. Mr. Edmunds Bald to-day that he thought it could be disposed of In two or three days. He la probably tbe only Senator wbo does not look for a much longer contest before tba resolutions proponed by tbo Judiciary Committee are adopted. Democratic expect tbe Republicans to pau tbese resolutions as a matter of course, but-they rely upon tbe President's message, the minority re- port of the Judiciary Committee, and their speeches during tbe debate to convince the peo- ple that tha Administration desires support In its efforts to uphold tne dignity and preroga- tives of tbe Executive. "NOTORIETY IN ART.' PROF. HERKOMRR, OF OXFORD, LF.OTOBES TO THE STUDENTS OF HARVARD. BOSTON, March 5. Berkomer, tho eminent art orltlo and artist and Slade Pro- fessor In the University of Oxford, gave an In- teresting address this evening at Sever Hall. Harvard College. In tbe audience were President Eliot, a large number of tho Professors, and a representative body of the studeuts. The special subject of the lecture waa "Notoriety In with references to art as a pro- fession, ao tbat tbe lecture might prop- erly como wltbin tbe ecopa of the course now being delivered on the professions. If nothing succeeds Itko success, aald the lecturer. it Is certain tbat success brings with it notoriety, and notoriety, though It be an ac- companiment of success, too often loaves Its victim insatiable. It blinds. It Intoxicates, it misleads, it engenders a feverish sensitiveness. to praise, and surrounds wltb a mlsg-uldlnft and artificial atmosphere. Thus It is some- times morclful lor the band of notoriety to touoh a men's work only wben bo has oeased to exist iu the flesh. Notoriety plays an Important part In tbo worldly is- sue of art. and tho laws that underlie it are tbe same that underlie or govern notoriety con- nected wltb all otbor kinds of mental perform- ances. There aro obances In our day for notori- ety so freely offered because tbe man who Is and the man wbo seems are now BO much alike that some people are sure to mistake the one for tbe other. The man who has a grievance Is often tho one wbo attracts most attention; without a grievance he could not agitate, and without agitation of some sore there can be no notoriety.

BEAKLVO OF A POINT IK COKMEBCIAL ON THE K1LLJNO Off TOM DAVIS- PLAIN TALK ABOUT BIS BROTHER. The trial of James T. Holland, of Ahl- lene. Texas, for tbe killing of Thomas Davis, of this city, oa Aug. 31, 1885, ended last evening in a verdict of not guilty, to agree upon which tho jury required only a quarter of an hour. The prisoner was In court bright and early, as usual. He bad been freshly shaved, anil iiad on a new collar. Uo looked confident, and chatted pleasantly with the coterie of Texan friends who surrounded him. Among them were Thomas Jordan, of Waco, and Henry G. Lamar. of Georgia. Tbe wlfo and daughter of Keeper Bagwell, of tho Tombs, were In court: yesterday, as they havo been every day of tbo trial, to show their interest in tho prisoner. The court room was filled wltb spectators, and curiosity seekers passed in and out in tbo course of tho day. bent solely on getting a look at tbe man who abot Tom Davis. The Jury men -svero all in tho box early, ana manifested a decided interest In the gorlous question whloh they aro called upon to decide. TUe foreman. John Harlln, asked somo ques- tions as to OOlcer Sullivan's testimony. Tbo Juror wanted to get at tho position of tho body wben it was found. Then Juror Morrison want- ed to know tho denomination of the bills found on Da v la's body. Judge Van Bruut informed dim that there were five ono-hundrod-dollar hills, four tons, one five, ono two, and two ones. The money waa sent for and closely examined by the Jurors. Gea. Itoger A. Pryor. tho senior counsel for Holland, then got upon bis feot to bcein the summing up for tbe dufonao. He read that por- tion of tao code which bajs that a mania pre- sumed to be innocent until proved guilty. Then he proceeded to argue that it waa not Incumbent upon tho defense to offer any testimony uutll tho prosecution bad established a good case. Then no turned his attontion to Mr. Da vis's testimony, and gave the ex-sawdust swindler such, a tonttuo lashing as tbat gen- tleman probably never before heard In tho course of his checkered career. He shook bis nnger in Davla's face and pourod out bis Invective bitterly, but tbo brother of tao dead man smiled even when Gen. Pryor. refer- ring to his being sworn aa a witness, said: "Such an abandoned malefactor sullied tbo Scriptures by bin putrefying salutation." Ho considered the possibility of Tho Davis telling the truth, and said that a man who would think of noth- ing but securing tho money and running away it while bis brother was (ring in tho acronles of death was uuworthy to be believed under oath. Such a man could not apeak tbo truth. Ills conscience waa so blunted tbat he could not tell the dlfferonoo between trutb and falsehood. Tho General mado a strong point of Tbo Da- vis's statement that bis brother crlod out, "Tako tho bag and or lot mo go." Yet, tho Gouural told tbe Jury, this man wbo had come all tho way from Toiua to set tho which be knew was In tho bag refused to take it and go, re- mained in the room to shoot Tom Davis, aud, after doing it, to go away without it. Gen. Pryor. In speaking of tbe ban, picked up District Attorney Marline's silk bat ana hammered vig- orously on it. while evory ono in tno courtroom Uttered audibly; but at the conclusion of tho Gonornl's speech, which lasted just four hours by tho eight-day clock on the wall of tbe court- room, tho spectators bunt Into spontaneous ap- A moment later they wished they adn't, for Judgo Van Brunt exclaimed: Clcik, clear tbo court 1" Handsome Billy Iticketta was down off hla perch behind tho witness stand in less than a jiffy and ordered nil tlio men on tbo benches to leave tbo room.

Ho also said tbat Holland's belief that bo was doing a good not In doming here to got out of tbo Davis brothers did not make it a good thing. Ho also told tbe jury tbat tbo prosecution had fully proved tbat Holland camo to New-V'ork with tbe Intention of getting bold of tbo and on the stand bo had admitted that It was bis Intention, alter bo got hold of tbo money, to "hold on Co It" with Just as much forco as waa necessary. Col. Follows could not refrain from paving nil respects to Tho Davis. He said that some Parts of Davis's testimony were unquestionably false. When bo said ho wasn't friKUtenod. he did not tell tbo truth. Col. Fel- lows said that Tbe Davis was as frightened as a tltnid bare. Ho also told au untruth when he said tbat be searched the prisoner. Ho told theso things fur tho purpose of giving himself au un- duo prominence In tbe case. Tho Colonel also devoted himself for a time to breakinir down tho todtimony of tbo export, Capt. Day. and suc- ceeded In making ex-Senator Grauy so angry that bo tried to Interrupt tho Colonel, but tailed to stem tho Uow or that gootloman's eloquence. Col. Fellows epoKo nearly two hours and a half, and mado a argument lor tba people. When liocloaod, long alter 6 o'clock, tlio court. room was still full of paoplo ougor to kuow whether tho cuse was going to be decidud boforo tbla mornlug. Ex-Senutor Grady, at tbo conclusion of Col. Fcllows'a sueecb, called tbo attention of tbo Jury to one or two accidental errors Into which Col. Follows bad fallen In his recital of tho testimony. Judge Van Brunt then arose lo cnargo tbo Jury. Heeald that ho bad boen asked to cbartro certain propositions by tbo defence. Ho proceeded to read those which bo thought wero proper. In- structing the stenographer to note an exception whenever be omitted ono. Aflor readlnir tlio propositions, tbe Judgo said that tbo ques- tion of itullt or innocence was involved in a small Tho question depended, atraugcly ououirh, largely upon n question of commercial law. If Tom Davis did not Intend to givo to Holland tha for his and no actual sale of tbo sum was comlempialcd, the money did not be- come the property of Holland, and bti had no right to use violence in order to keep it. Ou tbe contrary, Davis had a right to use violence in order to got bis property nut uf Holland's hands, nnd If the latter shot tbe former under tbeso circumstances, bo wasguiltvot murder. On tlto other bund. It Holland toOK tbo property under the behel thai Davis Intended actually to sell it to him, he bad a right to defend It. The jury went out at 7. JO o'clock. Thoy were out only 16 minutes, when they agreed un Hol- land's acquittal. Uut Judge Van Brunt bad (rone to diiinor, and, as ho dines woll and delib- erately.

Ho waa preparing his mouth for a long and loud whoop of joy, wben Lawyer Edmund E. Prlco caught lilm aud switched him off the road to LudlQw- citreet Jail for contempt of court, on wuicb he bad started. Holland's face did not ohango when he heard tho foreman eay Not guilty." Everybody jumped up and began to shake his hands, bo kept as calm as wben be waa undor crosa-ex- aminatton. When everybody else bad pulled him hltber and tblthor and pinched bin ears af- fectionately ex-Senator Grady, noticing tbat Judge Van Brunt yet sat upon the bencb, bald to Holland, "Go up and shake hands with tbe Judge."
