(fresham the Man.
Washington, Feb. 10 There i
general belief bere now tbat the rumored
appointment of Judge Gresham as secre
tary of state will prove a fact. In con -
nection with tt is coupled the statement
tbat during Mr. Cleveland s term be ex
pects to have one or more so pre me. court
vacancies to fill, and tbat Gresham will
be placed on tbe supreme bench. By
tbat time tbe Behring sea matter will
be adjusted, aDd Cleveland can tben fol
low bis first inclinations and make E. J.
PheluB. of Vermont, secretary of state
It is ffenerallv understood amoDgr Re
publicans th .t Harrison named Judge
Jackson for tbe supreme bench in order
to prevent Cleveland from gi-ing tbe
place to Gresbam. United btates sena-
tors of both sidi s were questioned today
as to whether Gresbam could be con
firmed, and it developed tbat be would
urnbably be. The Republicans would
not feel like extending Harrison's fight
asaiost Gresham, and Cleveland has
enough men on tbe Democratic side to
make the. confirmation sure. Tbe seem
mglv sure cabinet plans now are': 'Grfcsh
am lor secretary ol Btate or attorney
general; C.rlisle, treasure; Lament, war.
and Hoke, of Georgia, for the interior de
partment, the last being at tbe request of
Henry Villard. There is also authority
for saying tbat Villard has already been
promised tbe German mission.
London, Feb, 10 Tbe Fans corre
spondent of tbe Times says of tbe sen
fences in the Panama case: Pans records
this cruel judgment witb a feeling of
profound pain. Nobody would volunteer
to maintain tbat the outdoor clamor has
invaded tbe supposed icviolable sanct
nary of justice. If eyer there was a case
which appea'ed to the pity and indul
gence of the judges, It was tbat of Fer
dinand and Charles du Lesseps and M.
Fontane, whose main offense was that
they followed a chimera, forgetting the
Teality of things, the passions of men.
and the msumcency of the means" at their
disposal to overcome tbe; most formida
ble natural obstacles.
A CRUEL JUDGMENT.
The judgment is sailed witb the
cruelty which characterizes tho present
campaign. It strikes at a man who torm
erly was claimed as the representntive of
French genius, energy and greatness
How all but a corpse, as bis council re
marked today, we may speak of De Les
seps as if entombed. The judges thought
that their coup de theatre would appeal
to tbe unrelenting imagination of the
populace. Tbcy have, in fact, secured
unenviable immortality as the judges of
Ferdinand de Lesseps. Pardon is certain
to be granted to him, but if cognizant
even of tbis be would suffer as much
from clemency as from condemnation.

Managua, Feb, 10-:A financial crisis'

This is the same woman who commenced

testimony today Mrs. Keames said tnat
while she was damaged in health and
reputation to some extent by the publi

So soon as the accident happened an
electric danger signal was rung in at the
company's offices and tbe mills and work
ever v where tt;oriTted at once .' ' All the
doctors in west Rutland and Rutland
were called by telephone and responded
quickly. Scores of men were also sent
down to tbe quarrv. Soon tbe news
spread to the streets, and hundreds of
men, women and children hurried to tbe
quarry, and oy 5 o clock tbe vicinity was
crowded. In tbe crowd were many rel
atives of tbe dead or injured men, and
thev were frantic witb grief. The accl
dent was near tbe extreme end of the
quarry, tar under the mil. ine Killed
and some of the injured were ouned un ¬

is necessarily difficult. The cause of tbe

B. Morse, treasurer of tbe company, said
tbe ciuse was not certain, though tbe
"scale" or part of tbe roof that fell was
probably loosened by freezing.
The Shadow Of ATl-gne.
London' Feb. 12. From St. Peters
burg comes the news tbat 10 persons
have died of cholera. Witb tbe cessation
of frost tbe Marseilles people are trying
hard to cover up their dead and to quiet
tbe fears of the hying. But tbe worst of
all, as directly affecting America, is tbe
news from Hamburg. Ia the suburb of
Altona a prisoner in jail has just died,
and five other cases are being closely
watched. Tbe port of Hamburg itself is
allowed to escape. On board the steam

stricken with the disease. Tbe weather

the warm sunshine is bringing back to

Will Xot Volunteer Further Aid.
New York, Feb. 11 Tbe local banks
will not volunteer farther aid to tbe
treasury, and will do sq reluctantly on re
quest. Many banks, which have thus far
contributed aid, concur in the principle
laid down by the banks which held aloof.
The latter say they will turn gold into
the sUD-lreasuty as members of the clear
log bouse, but not as individuals. Tbcy
hold tbat the clearing-bouse should act
as a whole; that assessments should be
levied oo the banks on a basis ot their
gold holdings. It was generally under
stood today a conference of bankers
would be held on the arrival hero of Sec
retary Foster. Comptroller Hepburn,
who was in Wall street during tbe day,
is tbongbt to have arranged for tbe-at-tendance
of several bank presidents. If
such a conference was held, nothing
could be learned of it tonight.

The reported discovery of a sulphur
spring on the Willamette heights traot at
