The Ex-Esthete ’ s Own Admissions on the Stand Caused His Arrest to Be Made. Unexpected End to His Famous Libel Suit Against the Marquis of Queensberry. L ondon , April 6. —Oscar Wilde was ar ­ raigned in police court this morning after having spent the night in a cell in the Bow Street station. This adds a startling and wholly unexpected chapter to the proceedings in the sensational suit against the Marquis of Queensberry. The sesthetic Oscar, after making a fierce attack on the marquis on. a charge of libel, suddenly finds the tables turned and is himself languishing in durance vile. And now Queensberry has the whip hand. He is all smiles today, and the voice of derision over Oscar ’ s plight is heard from Mile End to Kensington. It came about with dramatic quickness. The verdict of the jury started it. Just as every one had been expecting from the nature of the testimony revealiug the vile ­ ness of the man, the jury found that Wilde ’ s libel charge was false. He had accused the marquis of libeling him by writing that he was a scoundrel and a moral leper. The marquis ’ son, Lord Alfred Douglas, was being debauch ­ ed in Wilde ’ s company, and the father warned Wilde. The passion poet retorted by suing the marquis for libel, and the upshot came when the jury returned a ver ­ dict finding the marquis not guilty of li ­ bel, going a step further and declaring that his charges against the poet were true and made for the public good. When the jurors had rendered a verdict of not guilty, Sir Edward Clarke assented and supplemented their verdict with the declaration that the charges made by the defendant against Wilde were true, and that they had been made in public interest. When the verdict was rendered, the Marquis of Queensberry left the dock amid loud cheers. The judge granted an order requiring Wilde to. pay the costs of the defense. Wilde was not in court. The wily poet had caught a whiff of danger in the air. Wilde Scented Hanger. He had hurriedly left the building dur ­ ing Sir Edward Clarke ’ s statement and gone to the Holborn restaurant. A war ­ rant for his arrest had not yet been ap ­ plied for, hut there was one to be secured to put the leper behind prison bars. After leaving the Holborn hotel Wilde went to the Westminster bank, where he drew out the funds to his account. He was constantly shadowed. He returned to the hotel, accompanied by Lord Alfred Doug ­ las only. Remaining a few minutes, they drove to Ely place and thence to the Cadogan ho ­ tel, where they temporarily vanished, and the Scotland Yard authorities issued de ­ scriptions of Wilde and spread them over the city. In an interview the Marquis of Queens ­ berry said: “ I have sent this message to Wilde, ‘ If the country allows you to leave, all the better for the country, but if you take my son with you I will follow you wherever von go and shoot you. ’ ” m. I. W. SILL. Pastor Methodist Church, Accord, N. Y., Says Cancerous Hisease Can be Cured. ' A ccord , N. Y — Under the old echo o method it was believed that any disease of cancerous growth could never be cured. The surgeon ’ s knife was resorted to, but the old trouble was sure to break out again. Since the discovery of Dr. Kennedy ’ s Favorii e Remedy, all this has been changed — the action of Favorite Remedy upon the system leaves no trace of poison in the blood, the seeds of disease are expelled and lost health restored. A notable case of the efficacy of Dr. Kennedy ’ s Favorite Remedy is that of the Rev. I.W. Hill of ibis town Some years ago he was suffering with a cancer of long standing, on his lip, and finally concluded to have it removed. In speaking of his case Pastor Hill said: “ About three weeks previous to having the operation performed, I purchased Dr. Kennedy ’ s Favorite Remedy and continued taking it for some time after the cancer was removed. Ten long years have passed since then and no trace of the ugly thing has ruturned. I speak with know ­ ledge in the highest terms of Dr. Kennedy ’ s Favorite Remedy as being able to cure the troubles for wnich it is prepared. ” One of our local physicians said, in ex ­ plaining the demand for Dr. Kennedy ’ s Favorite Remedy : “ It acts as a nerve and blood food, and to mj knowledge it has made manj% permanent cures of Nervous Debility, Sleeplessness, Dyspepsia, Rheu ­ matism and of the sickness peculiar to woman, where other treatments have failed. For headackes, constiptions and the run down condition, one often suffers with, there is nothing else so good. ” Grand Central Station Attendants. “ A practical demonstration of the wis ­ dom of establishing a free messenger and guide service at the New York Central station in New York city was given a few days ago, ” remarked a gentleman who had just returned from the metropolis this morning. “ I went to the big town on the 9.20 evening train, arriving at New York at 7.30, on time to a minute, as usual. In the car that I was in was a charming old lady who had a big satchel. When we got off the train I proposed to carry the old lady ’ s baggage to the street from away up at the forty-fourth street end of the depot. It ’ s a long walk, you know, from that end of the Forty-second street exit, and the old lady was all alone. I was j ust about to take her satchel from the porter when a smart young man in a blue uniform, wearing a round red hat such as British soldiers wear, and having em ­ broidered on the front in gold letters, ‘ Grand Central Station Attendant, ’ stepped up to her, touched his hat and politely asked her where she wished to go. He took the satchel from the porter and car ­ ried it to the entrance, where, after pro ­ tecting her from the horde of hackmen, he put her and her baggage on a cross town car and went hack into the station. Of course it was only what he was hired to do, but he did it so nicely that 1 was greatly pleased, and the little lady was pleased also. There was a troubled look, on her face when she stepped off the train, but when she saw the uniform of the young fellow who spoke to her it all dis ­ appeared. She knew she was in good hands and need not worry more. Thgt messenger service is a great institution. When a lady boards a New York Central train for New York alone now she knows that she will be protected from the time the train starts till she is safely in a car ­ riage or car in New York city. What more could be asked of a railroad than that. ” -.[Rochester Union and Advertiser. NEWS OF THE WEEK. Wednesday, April 3.

Dr. Lan ­ sing and his subsequent published in ­ terview accusing the president of intem ­ perance was shown to Mr. Cleveland, ,he said with considerable warmth: “ This is simply an ' outrage, though it is not the first time a thing of this kind has been, attempted. I cannot avoid a feeling of indignation that any man who makes claim of decency, and especially one who assumes the role of a Christian minister, should permit himself to become a dissem ­ inator of wholesale lies and calumnies not less stupid than they are cruel and wicked. ! T easily recall other occasions when those more or less entitled to be called ministers of the. gospel have been instru ­ mental in putting into circulation the most scandalous falsehoods concerning my conduct and character. The elements or factors of the most approved outfit for placing a false and bare faced accusation before the public appear to be, first, some one ■'with baseness and motive sufficient to invent it ; second, a minister with more gullibility and love of notoriety thhn piety greedily willing to listen to it and gobble it, and, third, a newspaper anxiously willing to publish it. “ For the sake of the Christian religion I am thankful that these scandal monger- ing ministers are few, and on every ac ­ count l am glad that the American people love fair play and justice, and that in spite of all effort to mislead them they are apt to form a correct estimate of the char ­ acter and labors of their public servants. ” B oston , April 9. —Rev. Isaac J. Lan ­ sing, pastor of the Park Street church in this city, who. in an address before the New England Methodist conference at Sa ­ lem last week, called President Cleveland a drunkard, has declared himself as fol ­ lows on the subject: “ My allusion made in a temperance ad ­ dress at Salem on Thursday, April 4, to the drinking habit of the president of the United States was based partly on com ­ mon report and partly on the testimony of eyewitnesses. From various and inde ­ pendent sources which I believe, to he wholly reliable I had been informed that the president had been seen on different occasions and in the presence of many persons in an intoxicated condition. “ The case being one of conflict of testi ­ mony between witnesses of equal credi ­ bility, I cannot decide, and since I have no personal knowledge apart from the tes ­ timony I withdraw the statement and ten ­ der apologetic and sincere regrets to the president of the United States and to the public. ” *■' PLATE GLASS TRUST.
