WASHINGTON. The Korr Scandal the Chief Topic of Conversation. Ejonorstion Only to Bo Found in the Impeachment of Harney’s Testimony. Xo Which Work Mr. Kerr’s Friends WIU Bond All Their Energies. Some of the Claims of West Virginia Fsalkncr to the Nation's Oralltudc. A Eoviow of tho Recent Career ef Hol brook, tho Scribbling Reformer, KERR. HIS ONLY WAT OUT. Special Ditpalch to 77n Tribunt. Washington, I). C., May 30.—The excitement over the attack upon the diameter of Speaker Kerr haa not subsided, and this most singular case has been almost the only subject of discus sion In public places to-day. Kerr’s friends show great Indignation at what they call tho wickedest political conspiracy that was ever In vented to destroy tho character of a man of un blemished reputation, and ore making great preparations not only to impeach the character and voracity of tho witness Harney, hut to cause his prosecution for conspiracy and perjury, and to discover and bring to punishment those whom they allege to have joined with him iu tho Infamous plot. Kerr, In Ids brief denial yes* terday, hinted that he ahould expose the manner In which the plot against Idm bud been worked op, and thus gave nn Intlmatlonof the policy which tbs defense will adopt A COMPARISON. Ucpnblicnnn who discuss the subject are as much undecided In opinion ns they were yesterday. It has been commonly remarked that the evidence ajjalnst the Speaker Is as strong a a that against ex- Secretary Belknap when the House voted to Im peach him, but notwithstanding this fact Kerr's case la treated with much more charity than that of the fallen Secretary of War. It would ho difficult to And a respectable llepuhllcan who will admit that he believes Kerr to he guilty, though scores of them say that nothing but a speedy and complete refutation of the accusa tions against him can save him. The one point In the case which seems to demand explanation more than any other Is the appointment of a New \orker and a Hcpnbllcnn to a much-coveted place, while there were no doubt many men In Kerr s own ois-4 trlct and of his own political faith who would have been glad to obtain the position, for while Kerr has always been looked upon as one of the most scrupulously honest men In Congress, ho has also been recognized ns A KTROHO PARTISAN, who would be less likely than ninny other* to giro an office which he might have hud at his disposal to a political opponent. If the attack upon Kerr Is the result of u political conspiracy, other and more prominent men than Harney have been con cerned In It, and the Speaker’s friends arc determined that they shall not esenoe discovery and punishment. Its only parallel in recent political history Is the nafe burglary conspiracy In the District of Columbia King. If Ills nut ft conspiracy, then the fall of Speaker Kerr la greater than that of Del knap. If Harney’s story is true, Kerr Is proved not only to have been a bribe-taker, but destitute of common prudence. Kllhcr hypothesis 1* ho im probable that the majority of those who dlscusa the subject dispassionately suspend their judgment and wall for further developments. A 81I.LY CIIAKOE. The Democrats arc making the low partisan mis take of charging that the testimony of Harney M the result of a Republican conspiracy. The triilli Is that Kerr has been treated by the Republican members of the Committee with tho utmost con sideration, am), without exception, in a much more decent manner than any Ropubllcanuiuler in vestigation has been treated tills winter. No pub lic testimony was permitted to he taken until Kerr was present with counsel, and the Democrats must concede thntthu Republicans granted this courtesy, ns tho Republicans at that lithe, owing to tho absence of Robbins and Blackburn, were tbe majority of tbe Committee. the Demo crats. In tho grossest partisan contradistinction to this, have slabbed In the dark ami without notice tho following persons: The President of the united plates, Secretary Bristow, Secretary Belknap, Sec retary Robeson, Attorney-General Plcrrcpont, ex- Postmaster-General Creswdl, and nearly every Republican whom they have assailed, and they have done this upon tbe testimony of such men aa Bell, Whitley, Lyon. Johnson, Ferguson Scelye, and others whose ox-parte testimony had been given to the world in Haring bead-lined. maiUICT-ATTOUNKV ni.iss. Nxw Ymm, May :k).— District-Attorney Bliss was before the Congressional Pub-Committee on the Administration of tho Deportment of Justice yesterday, and In the courne of bis examination an informal discussion look place, in which tho charges against Speaker Kerr were referred to by Mr. IJliso. On being questioned by Caulfield, Mr. Bliss said he was, he supposed, mainly responsible for Harney’s appearance at Washington as a wit ness. He (UlUs) bud known the facts in tbo pos session of Harney for about two month’. Ho hud communicated them to Mr. Bass, a member of tbo Committee. Hurnny was an Appraiser, and Darling's right-band man. When Darlings con nection with the Third-Avenue Havings Hank was under Investigation, an effort was made to stop the invcstlgntlo. , . threat Hint If Harney’s connec tion with Hie affairs of Hie bunk was exposed ho would make some damaging revelations about Kerr. Mr. BUsa said Harney had told him ho would not present auy charge against Kerruuless they seemed to bo well founded, and that iiu (Bliss) had care fully questioned Harney iu regord to hla relations with Kerr. HOIiIiUOOK. tub CAitcnnoK a swrut-scbntcu “ nKFonunit.” Special Corretpondence of The Tribune. Washington, D. C., May as.— lt Is risky husl ticss now-a-days to speak about a witness, be cause there comes along tui awful legislative frown, attended by a bowl of “ intimidation,” “ interfering with Investigation,” uml the like. This seems rather strange in view of the fact that these same witnesses are brought forward to swear away the character of men who have always been respected as honorable officials and upright citizens. and sui:n witnesses! Not only have trumps, vagabonds, ami general I tkad-bcuta been on tbu stand, but criminals, | and even Insane men have bad patient bearing while they related talcs wonderful to believe, and puzzled tbu Committees wit It the vagaries of diseased minds. Notwithstanding all this, you must not say anything to Impeaeb the cred ibility of these sealnps, because a Democratic House of Dcpreaentntlves buve summoned them to can disgrace upon the Government and blacken the reputations of eminent men. Not hliico the days of TITUS OATES, lIEIII.on, AND DAINGHIII'IEI.D have such nn army of disreputable witnesses been procured. Within the wails of each Committee* room some one leading witness is found who has made it a part of his duty to remain In the pay of the House, ami to hunt up tbo * ‘ great unknowns " to substantiate bis statements. One of these worthies was somo time since pretty well exposed inTnuTuiDUNB. and the scorching then inflicted Mlsedtho Iro of his “boss,” who runs the Com lulttee, and ho fortbwitli rushed into print to de fend Ids w itness, and to prove bis honesty as a re former. Did you ever notice that every scamp who Is turned out of ofthe for cause Joins the Demo cratic party and goes way up n« n reformer? tub witness in question, and he is cunsidvred tu Democratic circles such a damaging (?) witness, which Is too true, hud u record In Chicago, and that record Tut Tihuunk publish ed, but the history was not complete, particularly as he Is now such a brilliant light in tho great party bent on the reformation of the Government. If you spesk to any Democrat about tho Paul Pry inquisitions, they will tell you Hint next to Dell, the spy, comes llolhrook, the man who Just for sport blows up Departments und annihilates Cabi net odlcurs.

Suddenly forgetful of his previous on slaughts on fraudulent contractors. he allied him self to the one detected by the Department, and entered his service to secure an acquittal. This service even went to the extent of associating with the Clovermuent witnesses, so as to he able to con tradict their testimony should they unwittingly deviate In the least from his memory of the trans action discussed.

Thcv decided to demand the dismiss! of 'the Grand Vizier, the Hhelk-ul Islam, and the Minister of War. and proceeded In a body to the palace. Their conditions were presented to the Sultan, with an Intimation that, If necessary, stronger measures would he adopted. 11 h almost Incredible that the man who It en shrined In tho feelings of thu people of Islam us the highest personage upon earlh, In whoso presence no one tiny stand erect, hiforn who«e glance nil eyes must he turned to the ground, should have accepted the dictate* of u clamoring mnh. For an hour, It I* said, he hesitated: then gave way before the fierce lb reals of the Soflus and acceded to their demands. The brand Vlzer and the Shells who had incurred (In- hatred of the great majority of Miifl-mtmuns as • • Itu-slanV traitors to their country, who hail bowed down Turkey beneath the fuel of Ignatleu, were dismissed, Thu Sultan, In a terrible fright, had gone to a Klo*k alnne the Palace of Teller* again and was telegraphing frantically for troops hut thu Sofia*, having gained Ihclr object, quickly dispersed. Emboldened by success, it is said (hey now propose to present a second petition to the Sultan, on bis way to the Mmiiue. mid should It be refused they will forthwith pul) him off hi* burse. In Ihtm acceding to the demands of the most fanatical portion of the Turkish mob. says the cor respondent of tho Dally AVo*. the Sultan lias f liven about the best evidence pos«ih!e of his ul ter ncapacity to govern. Tho Bofta«, whether con sciously or not. are evidently aspiring to ploy tho iiari of thu Janissaries. The only defense which the Sultan could oiler forgiving way to them would he that, knowing their numbers and their Influence, lie could do nothing else. The Capital contains ul the present time only I.OUd regular soldiers; the rest are liudlfs and recruits. Turkish olll com liere openly state Unit they do not cx- I pcct In case of an outbreak that they will 1 lie able to control the latter. These recruits, swept in for the most part from Asia Minor, are fall of fanaticism, and would. It Is believed on every hand, l>c only too happy to obey the Sottas, and at once perform a religious duty In killing the Glniiors and illllng their own pockets. The Sultan may well have feared that his refusal todismisa tltc throe ob noxious Ministers would lead to a violent revolu tion, In which the mob soldiery, for ns such the recruits and Hcd I fs may he regarded, would act with the Softus. Mohs of then- latter have, during the . pant three days, been marching about Stambou). de manding the’dismissal of Mahmoud. Threats have ! been made against the Christians generally, and ‘ two or three murders have occurred, which the po . lice do their utmost to hush up. At the last ina , mint, before I close this letter, the Sofia? are still ; In the streets, and arc masters of the situation. 1 Constantinople h. hi fact, In revolution. Everywhere the cry Is raised against Husslan In fluence, and for a National Parliament. At the Jlajazct Mosque a large number of Softas gathered, anil when the reader came to the prayer for the ; Sultan there arose a shout of ••Stop!" Whut will 1 ho the end of all this It Is Impossible to predict. An > Oriental revolution is not easily checked, and the • Sofia* have commenced one which may dethrone Abdul Aziz, and place Prince Murud, the heir, ’ upon the throne. ♦ The existing situation is summed up In a special ! telegram to the Loudon Time* thus: ■ “Yielding to the petitions and demonstrations of the Boftus. the Multan hit* appointed Mehcmcit ’ Ilushdl Grand Vizier. llusshm Avni \Var Minister, f and Abhul Kerim (Into War Minister) Generalis i slino. A great revolution U thus accomplished. 1 This la tho ilrst Instance since the time of the Jim t binaries that the Sultan bus yielded to popular pres* i sure.
