April The Chinese minister has acknowledged the receipt of the telegrams of Collector Hagar sent to Assistant Secretary Fnirchild and by him forwarded through the proper chaunel to the Chinese minister. Beyond this formal acknowledgement nothing was said. Whether tho explanation of Mr. Uugar was Mr. Hhiels took advantage of this fuel to procure a writ of Italtcns returnable before Judge Gar- of tho Supreme direct- that the persons having him custody bring him. before the court aud explain his but at p. m. the grand jury came into the Court of General Sessions and handed to Recorder Smytbe indictments for bribery against twelve of the suspected including Sayles.

Recorder Roiythc has rendered a decision uu the application of counsel for a bill of particulars ai to i-ha upon which the grand jury found the indictment ngainut The decision will be made public until to-inorrow. Several aldermen of the board of 3884 are mecubeis of the present but Mr. Cieary was the only one of who at- tended to day's session of the board. His colleagues regarded him with curious glaucea and lie seemed ill at efsse. Ex-Alderman Waite was taken before the jury again and it is sup- posed hR continued revciacionc to the transactions of 1334. All sorts of rumors are afloat as to who will be the next victim of. Now that all the aldermen are gathered the men suspected of doing the bribery are thought to stand a good chance of receiving visits from the police. No one be sur- prised to see Jacob Sharp invited to call at police but some smaller fry are likely to be summoned first.

The Slate Senate to-day extended until May 5th the time during which the Senate Commitlc may take evidence in the TSruad- way franchise matter. It is expected that this will result iu obtaining information upon which to cause the arrest of .several well known persons of higher grade than the aldermen. Hitherto the committee for lack of time has been obliged to conGne its inquiries to tho quarters where suspicion was most plainly directed. Tho excite- ment in local political circles is of course very great in consequence of to-day 'a events. Tlio Syndicate Charged .With Complicity. April Rumors are current here to-day that Messrs. Wciduer r.nd the Philadelphia purchasers of the stock oi the Broadway Seventh Aveiinc Railroad arc to be arrested on the charge ot complicity in the bribery of the New York Board of Alderoieu. Thoieport is thai these cap- italists will be accused of furnishing a good part of the money with which the bribery was accomplished. Mr. Wcidner denies that any one of them advanced a cent for the purpose and pays that tho rumors have no foundation. Mr. Kemble is confined to hi.s house by illness. The Supreme Court Sets Aside a Verdict in a Breach of Promise Case. April Judge Pax- son in the Supreme Court filed an opinion in the famous breach of promise case of Clara Lerch vs. Charles Berks in which the jury in the lower court gave a verdict for Misa Lerch for Miss Lerch resided in the family of Henry Posey aa a domestic and brought suit against Gring ou the 25th day of for breach of of mar- The trial resulted in Miss Lerch's favor for damages. At the trial Mr. Gring did not dispute the promise of mar- alleged to have been madein Novem- but sought to excuse the subse- quent refusal to marry upon the ground of the physical incapacity of Miss Lorch to perform the physical functions of marriage. Mr. Gring testified that iu he ascertained from Miss Lerch that there tvas a physical deformity about she de- scribed its character and promised to have it surgically attended because she al- leged she could not perform the duties of a wife without haviug such surgical oper- ation performed. She told him she would have thft necessary operation performed. Failing to do this after repeated Mr. Gring ceased his visits and refused to marry. Afc the trial of the case both Drs. Amiuon and Reeser testified as to the existence of the physical defect and that it would have to be removed by instru- ments before the Jady could cohabit with her husband. Upon the trial no asper- sions wore cost upon the character of Miss Lerch or the defendant. Judge Sassaman took the ground that the moment the en- gagement of marriage was made between the parties they mutually bound them- selves to the fulfillment of the contract to marry ench and that the moment either refused to do that there would be a breach of and that the oue whose refusal cmsed the contract to be broken would be the offender and subject to dam- ages. Miss Lerch. on the strength of recovered damages. The case will have to be tried again. THE CLUB. Words of Cheer Extended afc the Meeting Last Night. Last evening was an auspicious one for the Prohibition Club of Bradford. Not- withstanding the gaa meeting aud a ing of the Presbytery iu the both of which commanded the attention of many there was more than the usual attendance at their new head- quarters. Hevenor T-fnii Soon opening a delegation of ladies ot the W. C. T. IT. came in and were enthusiastically welcomed by cheers and by congratulatory speeches for the club by the W. H. Peter FLndlay and F. W. Perkins. Seven of the ladies signed the constitution and by-laws and were made members of the club. This is a new era in its only malo members having been received heretofore. Several other ladies have signified their intention of joining. Prohibition campaign music and speeches from half a minute to five minutes partici- pated in by twenty-five or more enlivened the occasion. A report was made of the Prohibition victory in Rhode Island last whereby that State voted by more than the three-fifths vote necessary to carry it in favor of constitutional prohibi- that the Prohibition party candi- date for Attorney Col.

As the drill tests the territory on the southwest it com- mences to peter as is shown by X Farrnll'fl No. ou lot which very producing not more than fivebfurcls. As the drill proceeds northeast of I8fl the wells grow there being only oue small well and several dry holes in that direction. On the Etnerson farm the Benson Oil Co.

It was tubed Monday and i.s good for that amount. Now they are try- i'ng to force a connection between this sec- tioa and Glade. There is about' a mile nnd a half between these two places that is now being tested by the drill. Neil Co. have a well on tho same lot that is due to strike the snnd to-day. Logan Co. completed an exceptionally producer on lot TOO roda west of their 41 which was next to a duster. They will drill to the lower rock.

Collins Morse's White well made nine inches in a 250-barrel tank yesterday. Anchor ganged ten inches in a iioO-barrel tank and nine the day before. Phillips Co.'s wildcat on the hill passed through seypiity-five feet of very inferior finding nothing whatever. They are now drilling in slate and in hopes of finding the Dew-drop sand that Parker got right after the first rock. KAXE. Kane has had a fair opportunity of show- ing itself and from ita present condition experimenting with the drill with the ex- pectation of increasing ita capacity is any- thing bat encouraging to the wildcatter. Kane has seen its best day and as a bear to the trade is no longer a factor. The prodnction of this field is gradually fail- ing off. Within the past including the Union Oil Company's pair of produc- ers that were completed Kane has been behind 253 barrels instead of in- which was characteristic of her prior to this. What the wildcatter is doing here is too fresh in the memory of the trade to require a repetition of what has already been said. He is still ponnd- ing away with the same resnltsafl shown in our last report. Swain ought to show up a dry hole in the course of a day or so. At least the present outlook indicates that after which the trade will patiently wait to see if R. E. Stone will tabulate a duster or producer on 379. WASHINGTON. Since the time Joe Craig was reported to enter tho Washington field with sand- wiches and paraphernalia for the greasy campaign the words meant all they im- plied. He has made the derrick his bead- quarters with drawn curtains and barred and he has toyed and played with his well aa a school boy his top. He has been very reserved with his knowledge regarding the depth of the well and the rock they are in. Now conies word that the gauge is no longer given out. Can it be that the No. almost due the Willetts on the Mnucie little north of which is iu the Gautz sand aud gassing the Marshall northeast in the Ganlz sand and a strong the three wells in about the same can it be that the Dyer No. 1 opened a pocket similar to the Manifold well and the tremendous pres- sure of gas from these wells was what was forcing No. 1 oil aud now that the gas has fouud vent that it i.s really taking the oil away and No. 1 is losing tho redeeming quality that she once held in the Washington aud that .Toe Craig is trying to hide it from the There is now no doubt that No. 2 is tho strongest g-.waer that the country has over seen.
