Doubt aa to Durrant's Guilt Growing in the Publio Mind. San Francisco Police Think They Have the Right Man, However— Pastor of Church Nervous. SAS FRANCISCO, April in.—The excitement that followed tho discovery ol the murdered body of Minnie Williams in the library of Emanuel Baptist church Saturday, and the finding- of the mutilated, nude and decomposed remains of Blanche Lament in the belfry of the same church Sunday morning, has subsided in a great measure, but though nearly a week has elapsed since the tragedies camo to light, public interest in the case con; tinues unabated and it is the chief topic of conversation.. The body of one youthful victim, Miss Williams, is at rest in the cemetery, and the body of Blanche Lament is now on its way to Dillon, Mont., her home, and will reach there Friday. Tide In Dnrrant'* Fttvor. Doubt ns to tho guilt of W. H. T. Durrant, the young medical student •who is accused formally of idlling Miss Williams and suspected of having slain Miss Lamont, is freely expressed by many, and this doubt, fostered by the friends of the prisoner W. II. T. DUltRAXT. and those who mistrust circumstantial evidence, is spreading. There has bocn an undercurrent of opinion among those which was' expressed in a statement to the newspapers by the mother o£ the auousud man and which has also buon boldly stated in anonymous letters to tha coroner, which have been published, and the notions of the pustor of the church, Eev. John George Gibson, have been so peculiar as to create comment. 1'nstnr SnlTiTii from Nervousness. Unpleasant rumors reaching the ears of tlie pastor have naturally agitated and irritated him, and as a result he sent word to the reporters last night that he was suffering from nervous exhaustion. Earlier in. the afternoon he stated that the reason he had not visited Durrant, who was one of the active workers of his church, in his cell- at the city prison'was because of the inflamed sentiment of public ooinion, and if he did eall the people would be quick to say that he, as an accomplice, had gone there to steady the nerves of the young- man. Tlellove Entrant Guilty. The intimation by.friends of tho accused man that the:, police have ignored all clews except those that- point to Currant's g-uilt led . the chief of police to call his detectives before him. Thursday night so.as to fret aisummary of the evidence, and a .consensus of opinion. Five detectives have been at work on the case. The detectives were unanimous in declaring the belief that both women svere.- killed by one and the same man, and that man was Durrant, now under arrest. A Jfew Theory. The police have quit looking for bloody garments belonging to Durrant, and have a new theory which makes blood on .his clothes unnecessary. The theory is that the girl was first strangled in the reading- room, from one. corner, of which the dark little library opens, and was dragged there dead. There the catting was done. In this event the blood would have welled forth gently. Church H»» » Bloody Hkirory. That section of the city where Emanuel church is located was originally the Mission Dolores, founded by the friars 300 years ago, and is to this day generally designated as "The Mission." Popular sentiment of the mission favors the razing of the edifice. The church has always been under a cloud. A stain of human blood marks its history from one pastor who killed a newspaper proprietor and then blew out his brains to the awful tragedy that is now before the people. Everywhere is heard the expression: "Burn the place/' The feeling is that the church should never again oe opened as a place of worship. As a result of these expressions the insui^- ance companies have canceled their policies. PLAY BALL. ' rh« *«uoaoii the Green Diamond —K«»olt of the Gurnet.' The National Baseball league's iea- •on opened Thursday.. The pate receipts at all the games were large, and spectators exhibited much enthusiasm. The attendance wa» as follows: At XeT?

Hu Coumcl to Make H Flcht r ° r 11|UI for the Sunflower ApOBtlu. LONDON, April 30.— Oscar Wildo and his iriend Alfred Taylor wore arraigned in tho .Bow street police court at noon Friday for further examination. Wilde iooked greatly fatigued and really ill. His. hair was ruitted and his general-. appearance indicated carelessness.

Would Have the Term "Sound Money" Explained— He Write* for More Light. OMAHA, Seb.. April IP. — Ex-Congressman W. J. ]iryun,who \vas Eland's lieutenant in the last house in the fight for silver and who stands In tho front ranks of free coinage democrats, has sent the following letter to President Cleveland: ••BOX. GllOVHIl CLEVELAND, PllKSIDKNT— De;ir Sir: 111 your recent letter declining an Invjuaioi: to ;iuond the Clilcnso •|,~atli<sr- Ing i» in« interest of sound money. you say -What is now needed more thun anything olso is 11 pluin and simple presentation of the argument in favor ot sound money.' Since you secured ia.« unconditional repeal of tho Sherman !:iw you liiivo very properly taken the place so Ion? hold by tho author of tnnt hiw' Senator Suerman. and :iro now :ho ncknowledpcd leader of tliu Bold- stundard advocates of tl-.u United Stales, both domocrsiilo and reiwblicun. and to you. therefore as the loader of that clement, the people natdrully look for a plain and simple presentation of the argument in favor of sound money. uccordlnB to your understanding of sound money, or at least for an Intelligent, dcllnitlon ollt. What I* •• Sound IXouvfl" -What do you moan by the puraso 'sound money?' In your latter you make freq.ueat use of that and kindred phrases. In fact, In the course of your letter you speak throe times of 'sound money,' twice of a •safe currency.' once of a 'sound currency, once of :i 'safo and sound currency. ouco of 'safe and prudent financial ideas,' ar.do'.ieo of -wholesome financial doctrine,' lou ulso speak once ot a 'debased currency, onco of -i -degenerated currency' and once of -cheap money.' In one pluca you describe your opponents as 'tho forces of silver monomot- iiUts-n.' but you nowhere explain what you mean by 'sound money' or what you consider choup money-' , -Nov.- everybody favors 'sound money and a rare currency,' and a plain and simple stnus- ment of what you maw by those euphonious and universally admired phrases mitrht dispel the war clouds and make a 'lino of battle unnecessary. If by 'sound money' you mean a -old standard wliv did you avoid tho use of the word Told' in your letter? If by a -safe currency you mean bimetallism why did you avoid tho use of tbe word "bimetallism In your letter? \\"lml IJoi-s -Mr. Clovclimd Favor? -Your opponents have always given you credit for Ju'uratteously deliului; your position on public auctions. Will you prove their conildence well founded by statlac frankly what kind of a llnaneial system v;e shall enjoy it tho sound-money sentiment abroad In the land -succeeds in savins us from mischief and disaster.' Your opponents candidly avow their purpose and clearly outline tho legislation wlitch ihuy desire. Is it not fair to ask tliat you dell.ne your policy with as much frankness? ,,_i, -Your opponents favor the free and unlimited coinage of fc'Old bunion Into dollars, each containing SS.8 tfralns ot standard pold. Are you in favor of this? Your opponents are in tavor of tin; free and unlimited coinage of silver bullion into dollars, each contaln- inir' -112.5 gralnn of standard silver. Are you In favor of this? If not, are you in favor of the coinage of silver bullion into dollars of any size? If not in favor of the free coinage of silver, what charge, If any, would you mako for coinage? If you are not in favor of tho unlimited coinage of silver, what limit WOUld you SURKOBt? -Your opponents not only believe In the restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of both sold and silver at tho present rate of ID to I, but they are In favor of talcing this action at once, without wulllnif for tho aid or consent of any other nation on earth. Do YOU asreo with' them? If not. do you favor the'restoratlon or bimetallism by international u K reemont? If you are in favor of an intcr- natlon agreement, what ratio would you advise and what nations are in your opinion necessary to such an agreement? Sn.v» OKI President Is Frlchtnned. -Your opponents believe that the free and unlimited coinaR-o of K old and silver at tho present ratio of 10 to 1 by the United States, rcuardloss of the action of other nations, will give us sound money and a •safo currency.' They not only believo this but they support their position by arguments so plausibly presented that even you are -i-iRlitened Into .the belief that -the sound money 'sentiment must bo crystalled and combined' and made immediately active' in order to pcovent their success at the polls. Can you deuno your position so clearly and defend It so plausibly as to scare your opponents as badly as they have scared you? Is the failure of the gold-standard advocates to define their pur- noses and dcfe.-'d their financial system due to lack of knowledge of tho subject or to an un- wllUneness to let the people know what they intend? Want* an Answer. -If -the proprieties 1 of your -official place oblige' you -to forego the enjoyment' which vou would derive from the writing ot another letter explaining your last letter and denning your position on the financial question please designate some one who DM authority to speak for you so that the people may be -afforded an intelligent opportunity,' as you suggest, to study and decide this now paramount public question.
