The bullet which the prosecution claims was fired from u Flobert rilie Was found in the skull. The bullet wound was iu the right temple. Prof. Milton Jay, of Miuot Medical college, Chicago, «nd Dr. Rouseville, also of Chicago, were called as expert witnesses to prove that the! condition of tho skull revealed the effects of con cussion such ns would result from the discharge of a gun placed close to the head. The shot gun and rillo wounds were on the sonic side, of the head. The appearance of the skull caused a seiisa- tlqa ha court. At .the forenoon session Jerome Nay. lor was recalled. The defendants sought to prove that Noylor, since he testilied on Friday at his home, was in Seymour, had told several that lie had been aci. ing as a private detective and expected to get money from the state if the defendants were convicted and that he got mad at Felker anil tore the buttons off Felker's shirt.

GLADSTONE HAS THE OPPOSITION t ,.- IN A FIX. Secretary Morton Seeks to Undo Uncle Jerx-y's Work. Washington, June 29. — Secretaxy Morton is determined to do away altogether with tho meat inspection instituted by the last administration, which was the means of opeiniug an immense European market for American pork, It was a boon to the American farmer, Mr. Morton today sxxbmitted to Attorney General Olney the question whether the laws makes it obligatory for the secretary of agriculture to ex. pend the money appropriated for meat iusiiection. If the attorney general decides that it is not obligatory Mr. Morton proposes to terminate at one stroke the whole business, thereby putting a stop to tho meat inspection in Milwaukee, Chicago, Kansas City and everywhere else.

O., June 29.-^gecre- tary Carlisle received numerous callers today, among whom are many, members of congress. With all of these the silver question formed the principal topic of conversation and the continued decline of the price of silver was naturally advcxted to. The secretary had received a cablegram stating that the price of silver was today in London US 1-2 cents per ounce, at which rate the silver dollar as bullion was worth 53 cents. Nevertheless the point was of corn-so apparent that the purchasing power of the silver dollar wibh silver bullion «xt OS 1-2 cents per ounce was as great today as it was when silver was worth $1.22 per ounce and the bullion value of the silver was 93 cents. It should be equally obvioxxs that this is so because it is known that the credit dt the United Sates is behind its silver money, as it is behind all of its other forms of money, and without which none of them except gold coin and gold certilicates woxxld be worth their pox- value in the money markets of the world. This fact was several times emphasized at the last session of congress when ex-Secretory Sherman and others repeatedly declared during the senate debates that there was in the treasury the bullion gold value of every, silver certificate, issued by the government.

Obstruction Guns Spiked—The Premier Keeps tho House of Commons in , Session Until 4 O'clock This Morning—Anti Pariiollite Member of the Commons in Trouble. London, Jxuxo 29.—Of more than 1,000 amendments to tlie homo rule bill only 350 have so far been disposed of and the opposition appears determined to persist in obstruction until its wings are clipped by a strong measure of closure. When ithe committee stage ends, a month hence, under the new arrangement, the bill Avill have been longer In committee than any other bill in the history of parliament. Undoubtedly the patience hitherto exercised will have the effect upon which Mr. Gladstone calculated—of strengthening the linnds of the govei'uiuent in carrying out the drastic measures now proposed. Urgent whips were out for today's debate, and Mr, Gladstone is credited with a determination to suspend the midnight rule and continue the session until early tomorrow morning in order to secure the adoption of the resolu-i' rraiu Conductor Mauls an Outlaw With Speculation as to Yesterday's Cabinet Consultations. Washington, June 29.—Consultations between Cleveland and members of the cabinet today caused considerable gossip. The report spread that Cleveland was consulting with reference to tho advisability of calling an extra session earlier than September, but there is no foundation for the story. There is reason to believe that Clove- land intends to leave tho city within a few days for a long stay at Buzzard's Bay and that he and tho cabinet olli- cera were merely arranging matters. ANOTHER ROBBER FOOLED. tioii Avitiiout an adjournment. T. W. Russell's amendment really Involves a A'Oto of censure and Avill be supported by all the unionist forces. Mi. Chamberlain lias hurried to London to attend a meeting of the unionist leaders to decide Avhat tactics to adopt I in the face of the sudden change In' the situation. Mr. Gladstone's scheme, however, lias ibeen carefully di-UAvn, giving ample time for the discussion of genuine amendments, and the tories are placed in a fix by the awkAvard precedent of 1887. Besides yesterday's decision the government has determined to vote the Avhole supply before parliament rises. The ministerialists now calculate that the home rule bill Avill reach tho house His Own Gun. of lords atid that its fate there will be settled before the end of Axxgust. Should tho deposition attempt to obstruct the report and third reading stages the government is quite prepared Arkansas City, Kan., June 29.—Another train robber came to grief today. A rough looking character boarded the north-bound passenger train at Oklahoma City, carrying a large parcel. After the train Avas well out of toAvn ho Avent, into a toilet room and .soon emerged Avith a Winchester in his hand, held up tho conductor, compelled him to stop the train and then ordered him to go ahead to tho engine. As they stepped to tlie ground the robber alloAved his gun to slightly shift. The, agile conductor felled him Avilh a blow on (he jaw and be.-it him into submission Avith his own gun. He Avas placed in Jail at Wichita. He was equipped Avith two sticks of dynamite besides his gun. I Jlhoda Bird has secured a verdict foi' $2,000 against tho town of Otsego, Columbia county, for damages from a defective highway. Why the President Delays Colling the Extra Session. New York, June 29.—There is xuxxch talk in AVall street as to the reasons which prevented the president calling congress together immediately. One of the reports Avas to the effect that the president, in conversation with a leading member of the hoxxse, had said that while there was no reasonable doubt about there being a majority in the house favorable, to the repeal of the Sherman law, it was by no means certain that a like result would follow in the senate, and that this uncertainty of the senate was the principal factor against the calling of an extra session earlier than September. An intimate friend of the secretary of tlie treasury, in conversation with a reporter today, said that according to Mr. Carlisle, a canvass of the members of congress had been -made two months ago in behalf of Mr. Cleveland, with tho result that it was learned that there Avas a majority of the house in favor of the repeal of tlie rtlxorman silver purchase laAA', but that in the senate there was a majority of twenty the other way. It is believed, however, that enough senators (eleven at least) would be converted before Septemobi to enable a repeal measure to be passed in Ihe upper house. An ex-treasury official, Avhen asked about tho effect of the stoppage of free silver coinage by the Indian mints, said: "This is a vexy complex question, and xuxtil AVO know just exactly what the Indian British government's intentions are, it is impossible to discuss tiie question thoroughly. In some respects it may possibly be a good tiling for tills country. Heretofore an English merchant has been able to buy, say a dollar's Avorth of silver for GS cents, and have it coined into a dollar (Indian money), which, would buy a dollar's worth of wheat, and that gave him a decided advantage over tho Americans. The British government will no doubt try to avoid interferinj as far as possible with commercial interests, not only in their own dominions, but Avith the rest of the world. They are always A'cry conservative. Silver coin is still legal tender in India, but the government is going to put tho countiy gradually on a gold basis, and as a first step has made tho value of the rupee 1 shilling and 4 pence. If this countiy should stop the purchase of silver in September, I think it is very doubtful whether tho British government Avould be able to cany out its plans to raise the price of the rupee above tho arbitrary value it has now given to it. There is another question, too, as to which AVO are uninformed, and which makes it dillicult to discuss the silver question at this time, and that is the uncertainty as to the British (government's action in relation to council bills." taken itp iitt Europe, where all othe government securities Would Immedi ately drop; heavily* not being able t compete with American bonds. Then according to the theory, gold woulc flow into the United Stated and in short space of time bi-metalism woul have to be adopted by Europe and the enormous quantity of silver held by the American treasxtry would lise in value the whole trairxsaction being Immensely profitable to the United States. It is said here If nothing is done to bring about bl-metalism oil the silvex using countiies will begin manufactxir ing for themselvesi and the United States and Europe will lose enox*mousiy in their foreign trade. Tlie United States it is urged, has now a wonderful oppor tunity to settle the silver question permanently. The Colorado Silver Advocate on the Action of India. .Denver, Col., June 29.—Senator Hen ry M. Teller this morning said: The action of the government of India ought not to have depressed silvex ;o the extent that it seems to have done, and I think that the fall in silver has resulted largely from a mlsappre- xension on the part of the people of the East as to what action the Indian government will take. I noticed in the >apors of Txxesday that Mr. Leech and VIr. Cannon are -reported as saying hat India will cease to take silver. The fact is that if the mints are closed o prevent coinage It is the intention f the Indian ogvernnient to pin-chase liver and coin it on account of the government in the same manner prac- icaily as AVC coined under the Bland ict, and there is no reason to suppose ndia will not take as mxich silver in he next year as it took in the last. Iauj r friends of silver believe that that will enable the Indian council to ;11 Its council bills at a stipulated and ixed price and thxxs prevent the fluctxx- tlon of silver. HOT DEMAND FOR MONEY. NOAV York, Jxme 29.—The squeeze in xioney on call today Avas the se% r erest o far, the rotes rising to 3 1C per day nd the legal interest, or about 741-2 er cent, per annum. Loan certificates or cleaning house pxirposes Avere taken ut by the banks to the amount of early $0,500,000. This relieved the tension and call nouey dropped to 6 per cent, but ral- ed to 20. Sih'cr certilicates broke rom GS 1-4 to G2, Mexican dollars at 55. This morning the clearing house committee virtually formed a syndicate by greeing to take out a lot of clearing loan certificates for the purpose of putting a stop to the high rates for money and the panic that virtually exists in the money market. Some of the banks, the Gallatin and Fourth National, for instance, have never taken out loan certificates before and had no need to do so UOAV except for moral effect. By biking out certificates it is thought they Avill be enabled to lend large sums of money Several women who draw pensions as soldiers' Widows are dropped because they have re-married, and one woman will cease to draw a pension because she is living In "open and notorious adultery". The work of examining the rolls with a view to the detection of fraud will be continued, and at the same time current issues will be carefully scrutinized with the same object. .Secretary Smith and Commissioner Lochren, while prosecuting this work, renew the assurances previously given that just as much care will be exercised to secure the pensions of those who are entitled to them tinder the laws as will be used to prevent fraud. called him an " tmsophitetlcatea old> man" because he didn't seem worked* up a bit over the racket he had caused, but it was'training, and not Ignorance, that caused Ills indifference to the commotion.

He dined at the Victoria, and) left at 8 o'clock last night over the Santa Fe for Coli. fomia, where he will remain for a few weeks. The ministershlps to Brazil and Austria) wex-e offered the general, but he declined them, believing, probably, that there was something better in store for xim. Speaking of his intentions, the general yesterday aftexmoon said that the Jhinese mission was open to him yet; and he held a letter from President Cleveland to that effect. Gen. Bragg s in no hurry, lxoAA p ever, to accept the n-offered honor, preferring to await de- 'clopments and the effects of the Geary aw, Inasmuch as he voted against a similar measure Avhile In congress. The general has engaged a suite of •corns at the Leland, and will be here n September with his fr.niily to spend lu-ce weeks attending the fair. PEARY STARTS TODAY.

City of Mexico, June 29.—Tlie tremendous drop in tiie price of silver, bringing exchange on NOAV York to US Iit'i 1 cent., lias created much discussion an mig Mexican bankers. They generally regard the present situatoln as of. foring a good opportunity for the Unit. oil Slates to force bi-metalism on Eu- XOl'O.
