The suggestion of the governor to have the prisoners removed to Douglas is believed to have aroused strong opposition in Johnson county and created the impression that the prisoners were to be taken out of the reach of the county authorities, and escape punishment. No steps have been taken to bring the prisoners to Douglas and the governor disclaims any intention of shielding them from the action of the law, and says they will be turned over to the civil author.

DrorvEK, April 18.--A Gillette, Wyo., special says: Col. Van Home of the Sixth cavalry was to have left McKln- ncy yesterdaj with his cattle prisoners, Ileisse, Fodd and Elliott, and it is sup posed he did, but nothing was seen or heard from him. He had three troops of cavalry and his destination was Fort Douglas near Salt Lake City. It is feared he will not reach there without trouble. A thousand well armed "rustlers," commanded by M. A. Ryder, young preacher, are lying in wait for the troops and swear they will get possession of the prisoners and hang them if they have to killVan Home and all his men to do so. It is thought that Van Home will change his eftursc and take his prisoners to Fort Russell near Cheyenne, where the Seventeeth in fantry is stationed evidently being under the impression that he can make this post without being intercepted by the "rustlers." It is considered ominous that no word has been received from the troops. Many wires have been cut downifor several hours and it is thought they have been cut by "rustlers," who have met and fought the troops and want the news kept from the military authorities as long as possible. The Hotue. WASHINGTON, April 18.—MoRae, from the committee on public lands, moved to suspend the rules and pass the bill to adjust the swamp land grants and to fix limitations for filing claims thereunder. The bill provides that for all swamp or overflowed lands granted to any state which were sold for cash, such state shall have credit for the full amount of the purchase money received by the -United States, and for all of said lands in any state located with , warrants or • scrip or which were otherwise disposed of by the United States, and for which indemnity has been granted, such state shall have indemnity in cases, the amount thereof to be limited to the price at which the lands .were held at date of their disposal by the United States. Mr. McRea explained that the main purpose of the measure was to quiet the titles of settlers and to place to the credit of the stato what these settlers had paid to the United States government. Mr. Kilgoro of Texas opposed the measure, contsnding this would cost the government $50,000,000 .to settle the matter. After further discussion a motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill defeated: Yeas 113, nays 77; not a two-thirds voting in the affirmative. Wants to Face Ills Accusers. WASHINGTON, April 18.—Mr. James Rankin Young, lately executive clerk of the senate, has addressed a letter to Vice-President Morton in relation to the action of the senate in declaring his office vacant for alleged betrayal of executive session secrets. After reviewing the circumstances connected with his dismissal, Mr Young calls upon his accusers to come out from be hind the closed doors 6f the senate and make the charges against Mm openly, so that he may be' able to protect himself. Hoanien In Council. CHICAGO, 111., April 18.—Seamen's hall was well filled this morning with Seamen's. Unions of the (iulf, Atlantic and Pacific ports ind of British Columbia, who assembled for the purpose of organising an international Seamen's Union and bo- nevoleut association. Each of the lcoal unions is represented by three delegates, and a body as a whole represents nearly fifty thousand sailors. The convention will be in session nearly two weeks, and should all the branches, lodges and. unions be blended in an international order it would be tho most powerful organization of the kind in the world. The proceedings are being transacted with closed doors. At the opening session this morning President Elderkin of the Seamen's association of Chicago delivered an address of welcome. The "Prince" In Jail. Divrjiorr, Mich. April 18.—"Prince" Michaels to-day waived examination upon the charge of adultery and was held in a bond of SI,000 to the Recorder's court. As Mills and Eliza Courts were conducted back to jail, followed by their disciples, a large crowd surged closely upon them, pulled their hair and otherwise amused themselves, but the prince got safely within the jail. It came out this morning that an attempt was made Saturday by tho 'prince's" attorney to have Mrs. Mills drop the charge of adultery made against her husband. She was offered ,000 if she would cease to presecute her husband and was also to give up all marital claims upon his property, Mrs. Mills refused. upwards of two centuries, is buried in Abombcy, the capital of Dahomey. Allowing largely for exaggerations, this treasure, the writer declares, is said to bo worth a sum equivalent to 500,000,000 francs. It is known that .the successive kings of Dahomey have buries vast quantities of bullion within the pre- cints of the palace, in a number of large pits, ten or more of which are said to contain gold and silver to' the amount of several millions of francs each. Authentic reports of the existence of this treasure reached the French through missionaries and traders and this readily accounts for the eagerness displayed by the French to capture Abombey. The attempt, tho correspondent says, has been postponed for various reasons, but now that the French Bcnateand chamber of deputies have voted credit for the purpose preparations will be made to march on Dahomey. The French parliament a few days ago, voted over 3,000,000 francs for the purpose of sending reinforcements to Porto Novo, and orders were issued by the minister of marine for the French cruiser at Montevideo to. at once pro ceed''to tho gold coast and join the warship already there. Troops were ordered to proceed from St. Louis, Senegal, to reinforce the Garrison at Porto Novo and much activity was displayed in military circles. An air of probability is given to Globe's correspondents statement by fact that although the King Itohanzin and his forces who were said to bo threatening the French settlements had withdrawn northward, there was no cessation of military preparations and they are now being pushed forward with all possible speed. It may be that French imagination has been excited by the stories of vast treasures in theDahomeyan capital and that under a pretence of punishing King Behauzin for his many crimes against civilization, particularly his slave hunting raids, France -vill seize Upon it and at the same time cut short the career of the absolute despot whoso murders of helpless victims cry aloud for vengeance.

The groom is a young lawyer who has already made some reputation in his profession. The bride was a great belle in official sets during the Cleveland period, and she has hosts of friends and admirers here' and elsewhere. Owing to the recent death of the groom's mother tho wedding was a quiet affair, only relatives and intimate friends of the two families being invited. At St. John's church Miss Kato Brewer, daughter of Justice Brewer of the supreme court, and Mr. Karriek of Boston were made man and wife.
