CHICAGO, March 22.—J'rentlerg-ast beti'iiyetl no emotion when he was informed thai the supreme court had decided against him. He simply stareiJ at his informer aud did not appear to be at all concerned by the information. Attorney Clarenou S. Harrow \va.s engaged in the trial of a case in a. local court \vlict) lie received a telegram from Attorney Gregory at Ottawa announcing tin: decision of the supreme court. Jleatonoe took action to secure a respite. A petition was hastily prepared asking Acting Governor Gill to grant a respite in order that a fuller investigation of Prcudei'gast's sanity might bo tnailo. Anujng the signatures secured werii those of t'igiit of the various judges holding court in tilt 1 county building. Took Kitriiitrdiii.'ir.v .step*. Ijatu Wednesday night the attorneys for the assassin of Curler 1.1. llarritou asked J iul,;'0 Woods for a writ of habeas corpus, which, if the prayer is granted, may have the cifcct of freeing 1'rendergast. When the. supreme court at Ottawa denied the application for a supersedcas thu attorneys for the condemned man decided on this step, which is e.vtrcmely i:nu- s:i;tl in criminal jurisprudent'!; of the country. The judges met at the Auditorium hotel at 0 p. m. and there Mr. Gregory, who had just returned from Ottawa, presented his case in a speech which lasted two hours. Mr. Gregory attempted to make thu same matter re- viewable in his application for a writ of habeas corpus that ht; would if he had been applying for u, writ of error, dwelling at great length upon the alleged numerous errors in procedure. Judge Woods, by frequent interruptions, und Judge Jenkins less frequently, endeavored to convince Air. Gregory that the only point to bo considered by the federal court was the one of jurisdiction. Mr. Gregory did not concede this, and continued, setting forth the errors of procedure in the trial court ,by which Frcndergabt had been, as he alleged, deprived of his constitutional rights. He finished at 11:^0 o'clock and retired, leaving the judges to consult us to what action they should take. This conference lasted for lifteen minutes, after which they separated for the night, simply saying they would announce their decision later. J The Flea for rrenderg-.it. In brief, Mr. Gregory's plea was to the effect that Prendergast had been deprived of certain rights guaranteed under section 1 of article 14 of the constitution of the United States, which reads as follows: "All pereonB born or naturalized In the Unlwd States, and mbjeat to the Jurisdiction thereof, ara citizens of tho United States, and of the »Uto wherein they reside. No sum shall make or enforce uy la<r which ihall abridge the privileges or Immunities of oltliens of the Unlud State*: nor shall an; out* deprive anj person of life, liberty or property without due protew of law. nor deny to any porsou within Its jurisdiction tho equal protection of tho laws." He made a strong point on the separation of the jury, and also of the fact that Z*renderjra*t was not allowed to be heard in hts own behalf, and said the' prisoner had been convicted on depositions, being thus denied the right to confront the witnesses, and that this constituted a gross cane of depriving a citizen of life without due process of law. He also excepted utrongly to the instructions to the jury. Writ of Habeai forpnn Itofuirrt. Another effort to save Patrick Eugene I'rebdergast from the gallows came to naught, but as if to atone for it, another hope was held out to him for at least prolonging his life. The judges of. the United Slates circuit court refused to grant a writ of habeas corpus, but suggested that an .appeal might lie from their decision, and agreed to perfect tho record at once if an appeal were desired. Io that case a writ of supersede*! would be applied lor Irom one or tne judges, and, If granted, the execution would be postponed pending the ap peal. This would be the procedure it was explained, but no appeal wa taken at the time. final PleH for IIiggln>. Attorney Hanlou returned from Ottawa shortly after 11 o'clock. The au preme court listened to his plea for un extension of time ou behalf of Higgins and after considering it for a shor time refused. Tho application was made late last night, Mr. llanlon hap pening to find the court in sessiou. held up the fact that the day was Good Friday, but the court suggttsted that <hc';ircumtitancc would not lend nay weight to the decision.

WASillXfiTO.v, March 'Ji.—The esti mutes of the amount of revenue which the lariil' uill reported to the senate will probably show that the total amount will be aboulSUSl.OOO.OOO. This is arciliictionof between {13,000,000 and $14,000,000 from theosti mates in the first bill reported to the committee. The principal reduction is made in the internal revenue part of the biil through the rcswnUiou of the present tax rates ou domestic cigars and cigarettes, which amounts to a loss of over $10,000,000. Them will also be an appreciable falling off iu the duty on tin plate, caused by changing vhe duty on that importation from I J-13 cent to 1 cent per pound. The change in the fruit schedule, whereby bananas, pineapples aud cocoanutR are taken from the dutiable list, will malie up tho other principal items of losses. As the bill stands, if the estimate is correct, it will produce a.t least tso,000.000 more of revenue than will be needed. M'KANE'S MEN CONVICTED.

WASHINGTON, March 22. —The reading of depositions was taken up again when the court met, to the regret of many spectators, who had assembled with the expectation that Representative lireckinridgc would tell his story. Madeline I'ollard was seated beside her lawyer, Judge Wilson, talking- to him, with a smile playing across her face, and once us she talked she glanced over her shoulder at the white-haired defendant. .Before Attorney Stoll had proceeded far with his elocutionary effort, iss Pollard and her company rose and glided from the rooju, interrupting 1 for a moment the reading. The first deposition was that of Sister Augustine of the Norwood convent asylum. This sister has been for years at the convent, did not recognize Miss Pollard who had been at the convent, and said there had been but one Louise Wilson there aud she gave jirtli to H child last fall. During the inu 1 Miss Pollard claimed to have been n the institution there had been a 'oung woman inmate veiled most of he time. There was a rather unusual incident vhen Mr. Stall read out the name of his young woman, who had claimed to >e from a northern state, then apolo- gi/.cd and explained to the court that he sister had only given the name un- er the condition that it. was to be kept ecrot and not to be repeated. This sister had beeu present at the interview in the couvent between Miss Pollard, Attorney Carlisle and Johnson and Sister Agnes, whose deposition had been read yesterday. Sister Augustine also failed to re-cognize Miss Pollard. Her recollection of Miss Pollard's explanation of her mo- U\v for bringing the suit was that it would secure justice. Tiie entries ou the convent books under the name of Miss Itnrgoyne corresponded with the dates which Miss Pollard ami Dr. Street had given of her admittance to the asyiuni, and birth of the child and her departure. The name of the child on the record was Marie Ccrtrndo Hiirgoynp. According tn the recollection of tho .sister. Miss Jiurgoync had visited the convent twice after the child was born. The child had died in July, 1S85. When Miss Pollard was told of this, the sister deposed, she Dad thrown up her hands aud run from the room, but when she returned there were no evidences of grief in her face. When in the course of the deposition Attorney Stoll began to read testimony concerning the visit of one of Miss Pollard's attorneys, Mr. Mallon, to the convent, Mr. Carlisle objected to it as irrelevant. lirccklnrldge'il Frleodd Detert 11 Im.
