' - Lokdos. Doc. 1, JO p. m. Tbe French Ministry' ban evcured another delay on the Tonquin matter, to th surprise and disgust of the Treat majority of Frenchmen. At Icon Renault. Secretary to the Chamber and ' Ecportor f or the Tonquln Credit Committee, . thin evening- read to the Chamber of Deputies the full text of tha Commissioner' report The document was vajrue and unsatisfactory, and in. sur-h an oracular style as to engender a suspicion that it wai inspired and perhaps " manipulated by M. Ferry himself, for the puipose of affording the government an escape. If one should he desired, from its dilemma JL Ferry, when he asked for an Immediate credit of 9.000.000 francs with . which to carry on the Tonquln invasion, was pressed- to ' tell the country - the exact - situation ,. in Tonquin. He eraded the . mquest, and recommended that the question of the credit be referred to a commission, and promised to make the report of this commission the occasion for a full statement concerning the whole Franco- j Chinese difficulty. There was a great at tendance in the Chambers this evening to hear Jt Renault's report and the explanation ' that was expected from M. Ferry. THE EEO0MMXDAT1O3L The report recommended the credit, as It was cabled on the 28th inst it would, but upon the ground that the grant of D.OOO.OOO - francs was absolutely necessary to maintain the French status quo, irrespective of the question whether or not the dispute would even taste in war between China and France. Toe document makes no raoomniendatidn as to the matter at issue in Tonquin, but takes the ground that it' is at least necessary for - France to assume a ' bold - front, and that neglect to maintain and re-enforoe the French army of occupation can hare but the one effect, that of encouraging China in its demands, and thus make a settlement ou a basis satisfactory to Franca more dilBcuit to secure. The report concludes with the sitmi&cant statement that - there is nothing in the situation at present which excludes' the possibility of a peaceful 'settlement, and that, although the necessary precautionary measun-sf or re -enforcement of the troops hare been diligently attended to, no step was being' neglected in the direction of an amicable adjustment - TL Renault had no sooner done reading the report than the majority of the Radical leaders were on their feet demanding the promised explanation. Debate' wa however, cleverly cut off by the government agreeing to debate the whola question on next Friday.-, rotmcxL ornnox. Freucla politicians affect to see In the report indications that the government is making extraordinary exertions to effect a ' settlement with China. 1L Clemenceau'e ... persistent efforts to force the Ferry Cabinet to place themselves on record on the Chinese troubles are fairly illustrative of the temper Of the French Radicals on the Tonquin question. The relegation of the responsibility of a vote of credit to a commission was regarded . by M. Clemenceau and his followers as an Indication of weakness on the part of toe JBnirtry, and they feel that X. Ferry's re tha fusals to explain tbe situation at this time are mere subterfuges to keep the people quiet, until tbey are compromised to such an extent, that it will be impossible to withdraw "'with dignity. ' The purely Radical element in French politics, of which X. Clemenceau is . cndoubtedlytheexponentdoes not hold with any. undertaking which is so ephemeral and remote as a possible success in Tonquin. To-night in boulevard cafes, M. Ferry la freely condemned, and the indefinite tactics which be and bis Ministers are practicing Ai l . i.i.j i , n TKEtCOXDEKXATIOJC OF o'DOWJTELL. O'Donnell was pronounced guilty of willful murder at 8.53 o'clock to-night and at 9:30 had been condemned to be banged. The whole scene, from the time the case was given to the jury until the prisoner, bowling and cursing at bis fate, was violently . pushed from the court by the -officers, was one' of the most exciting which has ever been witnessed for many years, at even the Old Bailey. The counsel for the prisoner evidently gave up their case when tbey saw the tendency of Judge Denman's charge, which in its sharply defined Dlastra-tionsof what constituted willful murder, sentence by sentence, gradually took away tbe ground from under the elaborate structure of self-defense. One point which the Jndge tool: great pains to Impress upon the jurymen was that aftrr a fight between-two men occurred one might kill the other de-, libcrately with the premedidaOon which could easily occur after the firxt excitement 1 of the struggle- bad subsided. This, the J mure insisted, would undoubtedly be murder.' and could not be excused upon the plea that self-defense was tbe motive that Impelled the slayer to make the' original struggle.. This made an apparent . PEOFOUXD rjfPBEMIOX OB TOT JXTtT, and evidently brought back to their recollection with increased force the plea of the prosecution, that O'Donnell, who admitted that before the fatal Btrnjrgle be knew Carey's Identity, and intentionally roaded the informer into the fight for the purpose of getting an excuse to kill him, or after he had engaged him in the combat concluded to make it the occasion of murdering him. The Court also dwelt at length upon the point raised by the prosecution that tbe defense refused to allow O" Don-Hell's alleged wife to testify. Sir Henry James. Attorney General, on behalf of the Crown, built up a strong and ingenlus arsumcr. upon the fact He said the woman was O'DonnelTs 'woman," and not his wife, nd entirely qualified to testify; that eat was the prisoner's 'constant companion before sd about the time of the assassination, and, next to the defendant himself, knew better than any other living person whether sr act O'Donnell was tracking Carey, and whether or not tbe killing was premeditated. ' The refusal on the part of the defense to allow this woman to testify, tbe Attorney' General argued, was the strongest posslbie indirect proof that ' ' . o'uo-trnx'8 act was rEKwxxrrATED. ard tbe dvt;tf-rat trick, resorted to for the purpose of keeptojr her testimony out of sourt aaturaily ttat of eetting up tbe claim i ah vaa ki vUa a&d therelort Ci.xtrti& Ids papaa applautlUS OTeaMUj qualified as a witness either for or against tha prisoner, forced the deduction that the woman knew that CDonnell premeditated ths killing of Carey, and that if she had been won she would hare been compelled to admit that such was tha fact . The Court emphasised this argument, and apparently inclined strongly toward its support It is absolutely certain that both this point ancf the one raised by the Court Itself when describing premeditation had more effect upon the spectators than all else said together, and there can hardly be a doubt that they likewise affected the Jury When 'Judge Deman had given the case to the jury and the latter had retired, the Court said to O'Don-nell: M Prisoner at the bar, if you so wish you may retire while the Jury is out - I would as lief sit here where I am as not to hear what tha verdict is," replied the prisoner. - ' For awhile O'Donnell and his counsel appeared composed, although expectant - But as the time of the jury's absence lengthened composure gare way to uneasiness, After an absence-of exactly forty-five minutes tha jury returned, not with a verdict, but with a question, and O'Donnell fetched. a dee man er bkutt. The formalities through, the foreman asked the Court the following question: "If one man shoot and kills another man, the first man thinking at the time that the other is about to shoot him, would that be murder?" The question held out such hope to the prisoner that his whole demeanor changed to comparative cheerfulness. ' The Court answered: "It might be murder, or it might not But in this ease no evidence baa beeu produced to show that Cony intended to shoot" This interjection hv the Court sent a cold thrill through the audience and cast the cloud of despair again over O'Donncll's countenance. During the sncona retirement of the jury O'Donnell became anxious, and frequently attempted to conceal his excitement by holding' close conferences with Jlr, Guy and General Fryur. Tbe jury this lime remained out one hour, - and the suspense among; the people in the court-room had become quite painful, when the jurymen once more emerged. Tbey again cam roi rsroRXAnox, and again the prisoner's face lightened up with hope. The Court was- requested to inform the jury of tbe precise meaning of the expression: "Malioe aforethought" Jndge Deman defined the. term, without comment The jury retired for the third time, and the look of hoe remained on O'Donncll's face. He turned around to his. counsel, and was beard to say: It looks better." Five minutes later the jury denied solemnly into the court-room, and with eyes cant down, resumed their places. Then the terrible strain attending the formal colloquy between the court, clerk and the jury foreman was terminated by the foreman's slow and deliberate announcement of the verdict, "Guilty of murder." O'Donnell turned pale aa death. 5reai drops of perspiration fell from his brow, and with a sort of a crazy surprise be half emitted a cry, but by a tremendous effort be almost instantly regamed possession of himself, biting his under lip until it bled, and then clenching both his fists, with his arms extended down his side, he straightened himself up to his full height and stood staring at the court with all - TBI AFFEABAJIOE or DinANOt be was able to summon to bis command. Judge Denniaa is somewhat notorious for his aversion to death sentences, and hesitated great deal before be began his disagreeable task in this instance, During the earlier part of the Judge's address O'Donnell stood at bis fullest height after tha first utterances crossing' his arms on his breast As the sentence was approached he began to swag ger and lolled back and forth and smiled scornfully - upon both the jurors and the Judge. When the Judge said Carey may have been a wicked and abominable man, but that gave the prisoner no reason for murder ing him, O'Donnell loudly sneered. He made ao sign, however, during the pronouncement of the death sentence, but immediately anon its conclusion he asked permission of tbe court to make an address. What O'Don nell said was: "Jndge, 1 ask permission to make aa address. I want to say something that will forever ring in the ears of the Irish people." The reporters, counsel, spectators. and officers present heard these words very plainly. Judge Den man pretended to not have heard them, and putting his hands to bis ears, aaif to bear better, asked the clerk what the prisoner bad said. -HK WAKTS TO XAU A SPEECH," answered the clerk. "Oh!" said the Jndge and the officers, taking this for a signal. grabbed a strong bold upon the prisoner, and began pushing him from the room. O'Don a ell fought hard to stay and speak, but was dragged out amid the wildest excitement yelling at -the top of his strength, "Three cheers for Ireland. Good-by to the United States! To hell with tbe British crown." Tbe officers kept tbe excited - crowd back from the aialea. but O'Donnell was beard struggling, cursing, and howling hor- riblv all the way . down tbe stairs. - During tha, latter ' hours of the trial thousands of people surrounded tha Old Bailey, the crowds extending into Kewgate street and Ludgate Hilt; and occupy ing every available point of observation. One hundred special police were distributed around to preserve order. The predominant sentiment of the crowd was ia favor of O'Donnell. . A tew minutes before. 9 o'clock, and when tha nature of tha verdict known to the leading officials, the police be came alarmed at the increase of the crowds. Advantage was taken of tbe popular feeling, and word was sent out that O'Donnell was acquitted. '. . . . A DECEIVED CBOWD. . This news wss received by tha people in the streets with tremendous cheers, which were plainly audible in the court-room. The crowds began at once to disperse and carry the news In all directions, screaming and hurrahing as they went - la this way the old Bailey was well cleared of the crowd before the jury rendered their verdict which was silently received in tha court, except by the prisoner. When O'Donnell was removed from the court be was placed In a "condemned cell," In Kewgata prison, which ad joins tha old Bailey. The police feared to risk taking him on a night journey tosfill- bank prison. A special guard has been placed around Newgate prison. ' " j KB. cixrvAx'a opnnoin. . A. X. Sullivan, leading counsel for O'Donnell, told a cable news reporter to-night that he behaved that the jury were virtually coerced Into rendering tbe verdict of murder against O'Donnell by the Court's volunteered statement that there was no proof that Carey was about to shoot O'Donnell when the latter Rhot him. - "Before Judge Den man made this statement," said. Xr. Sullivan, "I had expected to secure either a disagreement or a verdict of manslaughter. 7 Certain! v, before the Court made that statement the jury were In a state of hesitation. I anv sura tbey were convinced that young Carey was a liar; and also convinced tbat'Curev did ' have a pistol. -There was a time when I feared the extracts from the Jrltk World and otner as an Invincible, and so forth, would affect the' verdict throuch public opinion. . But now I think they did not I believe the Judge wss painstaking and fair a he could be, and that the jury were attentive, les. an attempt may, be made to secure a reprieve, but the attempt will be hopeless after O'DonnelTs utterances to-night trout the dock.". , : . . . OEXXBAL PBTOB (aid to-night to a cable news correspondent: "Everything-possible was done for CTDon nelL In my opinion Mr. Charles Russell's speech for tbe defense was a most masterly effort and tbe peroration the most touching I ever heard. If I ever get into a bad box I shall want 3ft Russell to defend me. O'Donnell is a man of tremendous courage. Nothing could bare been liner than the scornful look. tbe folded arms, and the defiant attitude of the man while the Jndge was bidding aim be contrite for his deed. n 3fr. Guy. in an interview with a cable news reporter after tha verdict said: "When the Jury first retired, I thought matters looked favorable for O'Donnell. But when the jury came out the first time- and were sent back with the Judge's damaging statement about the total lack of proof of any Intention to shoot on Carey's part I "aid to O'Donnell: 'It looks very black, O'Donnell. He answered without the slightest bravado, and without moving a muscle of bis lace: I uon't care a damn.' But when the jury came again and asked for a DEFixmox or belf-detexse. I again grew hopeful The verdict on this account was the bitterer. O'Donnell in tended to moke a speech before tbe sentence was pronounced, but bis request was misunderstood, and ho did not eorrect'y catch tUe cIerk' audible question aa to what he wished. But it is, perhaps, well enough as it is. He could not have said more, had be spoken for an hour, than he' did in his few pathetic and defiant, words, which, in my opinion, express as mnch as did Emmet's speech; but O'DonnelTs utterances have destroyed all chances of a reprieve." . General Pry or returns to New York on the Germanic nixt Thursday. Lord Xsyor Fowler has invited General Pry or to a banquet with him on Tuesday evening next General Fry or will probably accept tbe invitation. ' Xr.

General Pryor left court in the company of two ladles, one attached to each of his anna WESTMT5STEB ABBKT - The agitation in favor of aa enlargement of Westminster Abbey is growing rapidly. and plans are being submitted for tha proposed extension. .The discussion of the condition of the cloister has revealed some unpleasant facts. It has been known' for years that the burial-place was crowded, but to what extent the general public hod not realised. The remains of Livingstone, the great explorer, were thrust among the disjointed skeletons of members of the ancient guilds of engineers and clockmakers; Ben Jon- son's bones are sadly crowded by John Hunter's coffin; the remains of a queen are hope lessly mixed with those of a duke of later days, who built his vault over them, and Addison's body, laid atop of that of the Duchess of Albemarle, was in turn surmounted by that of the poet Craggs. So great has the 'crowding- now become that it is actually impossible to find room for mora interments. Naturally the English dislike to abandon the Idea of laying away their great dead in this noble and venerable place, and architectural considerations are not likely to stand in tha way of proposed enlargement of the abbey.
