on invalid pensions, today received a
communication from Commissioner Raum,
in which he states that he has concluded
examining claims recorded to Dec. 6, un
der the new act. There are, he says,
172,946 original invalid claims. 55,823
original widow claims, and 293,330 claims
by other claimants. Mr. Morrill regards
this statement as an evidence that the
expenditures for pensions under the new
act will be much less than was anticipated,
and that there will be a considerable sav
ing to the government, from the fact that
arrears Oannot be collected on applications
for pensions filed under the new act.

"Washington, Dec. 11. Mr. Mitchell

reason why ho had had audiences when he

ANOTHER FINANCIAL SCHEME.
Washington. Dec. 11. The house com
mittee on banking and currency met this
morning, and there was a general discus
sion of tho financial situation. There was
considerable difference of opinion mani
fested. Several members thought that the
great need was a restoration of public con
fidence, and that, with thib secured, finan
cial affairs would right themselves. Mr.
Walker and one or two other members of
tho committee were in favor of additional
legislation in the interest of the national
banks, and Mr. Walker will draft a bill to
meet his views of what should be done to
permanently benefit the financial situa
tion. Tho result of tho discussion was tho
adoption of a resolution to request the
house to set apart a day for consideration
and disposition of Chairman Dorsey's bill
to reduce to $1,000 the minimum amount
of bonds which national banks shall bo re
quired to keep on deposit, and to permit
the issuo of circulating notes by national
banks to the full amount of tho par value
of bonds deposited. This would, it was
said, increase tho amount of money in cir
culation almost immediately by13 000,000
and would result in a freer issuo of
national bank notes by making the loss on
circulation insignificant, or perhaps noth
ing at all. When tho bill comes up in the
house Chairman Dorscy, on behalf of the
committee, will move an amendment to
provide for tho issue of greenbacks when
ever tne uatioual uauK circulation falls
Mr. Morrill, of Kansas, was authorized
to report favorablv a bill to subject
national banks and United States treasury
notes to state taxation. Iu his report on
the house bill, Mr. Morrill says the com
mittee fails to see good reason why one
form of currency should bo exempt from
taxation while another is taxable.
Mr. Dorscy, in speaking of the situation,
wild tho circulating medium was too
unall. Lack of confidence was another
cause for the strained condition of affairs.
People were alrmcd needlessly; but the
alarm was just as effectivo in causing a
cr.is as if good cause for it actually exited.
Washington, Dec. 11. Gen. Schofield
today received tho following favorable dis
patch from Gen. Miles about the Indian
'Reports from Gen. Rueer and Gen.
Brooke are quite favorable. The presence
of the troops now in position has had a
demoralizing influence upon the Indians,

CHICAGO, Dec. 11. Lieut. Chadwick,
one of the officers sentwith Buffalo Bill to
arrest Sitting Bull, is in the city. Cody's
plan, he said, was the most daring he had
ever heard of. Cody was dressed in even
ing dress, and was ridinc with only nine
followers Into the very heart of the Sioux
camp. His plan was to draw a gun on

bucks gave chase, he was going to protect
his body behind their chief and threaten
tho Indians with the death of Bull, if they
fired at him. All would have been
massacred, said Lieut. Chadwick, had the
plan been pursued.

Executive Silver committee today issued
an address to congre. It states that, be
lieving the the money stringency to bo

congress to restore silver to unlimited use

FAITH CURE AND FREE- LOVE.
PlTTSBUrtG, Pa., Dec. 1L A faith cure
advocate has done some work in the ham
let of Center, in Plum fownship, this
county. The alleged healer by divine as
sistance, Rev. Mr. Willcts, eloped with
the wife of a man named Edney, and two
children died of diptheria because of the
delusion that Christian science alone
would save them. Rev. Willets has been
in Center for some time, and found many
persons willing followers of his faith cure,
free love, eat, drink and be merry creed.
He said appetites and passions were given
for man's enjoyment, and should be satis
fied. He also taught that if anv one was
sick they should pray to God for relief,
and if he was not willing to save them,
neither doctors nor any mortal power
could aid them.
One man named Forrester had four
children sick'' with diptheria. He
was imbued with the idea of faith cure and
refused any medical aid for his children.
Two of them died, and then a physician
was called in and the lives of the other two
were saved. Another familv, named
Stouffer, had two children afllicted with
this terrible epidemic. The parents were
believers in the strange doctrine, and re
fused all aid, but when the lives of the two
little ones wavered in the balauce, when
the blue-eyed children seemed half in
heaven, tho mo her's love for her babes
overcame her religious zeal. A physi
cian was called and the lives of the little
ones were saved.
In the same settlement was a miner
named Eduev, who was a devout follower
of Willits. lie also had a wife, who had
the bright eyes, tho fair, soft complexion
and all the general buxomness of the typi
cal English girl. She was the mother of
four children, all of whom are as pretty as
herself. The preacher saw and loved her,
Immediately he began to preach free love,
and told husbands their affection need not
be confined to one wife. Ho carried out
the sentiment of his preaching, and car
ried off Mrs. Edney. The couple went to
Salem, O., aud after an absence of several
months returned. The deserted husband
ijQuirluUiis wife jvould return to.blm.-and..
wmio iiu tso-ureamett uic preacuer auu tup.
miner's wife again went to Salem.
In the absence of Willets a fellow nnmed
Jones took up the song of faith where
Willets had laid it down. He preached
fora while and then went to join Willets
at Salem. Rather than see this happy
form of religion fall, another miner took
tiie place ns leader in the faith. He
differed from the former pastor in that he
would occasionally work, and he alter
nately dug coal and preached fath cure
and free love during his idle hours. One
day in the mine he became angry with his
son and knocked him in the head with a
crowbar. The father refused any medical
attendauce, but the boy's strong constitu
tion, nided by a mother's nursing, pulled
him through. Agent O'Brien, oue of the
Humane society, says he can not prosecute
the people now, because the trouble is
over, but lie will notify the authorities at
Salem of tho character of Jones and
Willets. Rev. Willets is the same man
who found bo many followers to his faith
cure doctrine last fall at Midway, Pa.
A CHEAP WIFE.
SUNBUKV, Pa., Dec 11. The strange cace
of a man selling his wife to another for 25
cents, and the woman being perfectly sat
isfied with the arrangement, has just been
proved here in court. After the barter and
sale, the husbatid and his aforetime spouse
and her new lord and master continued to
reside beneath the same roof, and all went
on for some time.
Mr. and Mrs. David Zimmerman lived
in Coal township, this county, and Mrs.
Zimmerman kept two boarders John J.
Stewart and John Clayberger. Five
months ago Zimmerman sold his wife to
Stewart for 2o cents and executed a writ
ten agreement of sale. After this
Zimmerman and Clayberger occupied
one room, while Stewart aud Mrs. Zim
merman occupied another. Things went
along smoothly until about two weeks
ago, when Cla berger aud Stewart had a
quarrel. Claj bergar thereupon went be
lora a justice of the peace and made com
plaint against John J. Stewnrt for unlaw
ful cohabitation with .Mrs. iimmerman
and a complaint of marital infidelity
against the woman. Both were committed
to await their trial at the present term of
court. The first case to come up was that
of Stewart, and he acted as his own attor-
new nnd displayed considerable talent as
Dublin, Dec. 11. The struggle for
possession of United Ireland assumed
another phase this morning, and again Mr.
Pnrnell is in possession of the offices of the
comnanv. When the opponents of Mr.
Parnell, who succeeded last night in effect
ing an entrance to the office, and in des
troying 11 the leaders prepared by Mr.
Leamy, who was appointed yesterday to
succeed Mr. Bodkin, who was actine edi
tor during the absence of Mr William
O'Brien, took theirdeparture, they left a
guard in possession, with orders to resist
any attempt of Mr. Parnell or his friends
to enter the building.
This morning Mr. Parnell proceeded to
the office aud with the assistance of a
crowd of his supporters, forced open the
doors and took possession. Tho police
witnessed the affair, but did not interfere
in any way. After he had succeeded in re
capturing the office, Mr. Parnell went to
a window and addressed the crowd out
side. To guard against any further attempt
on the part of Mr. Parnell's opponents to
recapture the office, no one was allowed to
enter and tne doors and windows were
closely bolted and barred. Mr. Parnell
was accompanied b3 the staff of editors he
appointad yesterday, and when the office
was secured against intruders all conver
sation was carried on through a key hole.
When Mr. Parnell made the assault upon
the office this morning, he himself was
armed with a crow bar, which he used in
forcing the front door.
THE COMING STRCGGLE.
The large and enthusiastic meeting held
in the rotunda last uight, and the speech
then made by Mr. Parnell, have already
had the effect of influencing public opin
ion in favor of Mr. Parnell throughout
Ireland, and the number of his adherents
is growing rapidly.
The Most Rev. Abraham Browning, D.
D Roman Catholic bishop of Ossory. in
which diocese is 'situated the town of Kil
kenney, has advised the voters therein, at
the coming election for a member of the
house of commons to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Mr. Marum, to cast
their ballots according to the dictation of
their conscience. The fight there will be a
good test of Irish opinion, and tho sup

back that the instructions would be
obeyed. Mr. O'Brien then cabled Bodkin,
the acting editor, to see that no attacks
upon Mr. Parnell appeared and to sup
press the cartoons.
Two of Mr. Parnell's supporters later
cabled Mr. O'Brien to come to Paris and
to direct United Ireland on a neutral basis?
Mr. O'Brien replied that he would go to
Paris, and would conduct United Ireland,
mean time, neutrally. One of the men
who cabled O'Brien assisted in the attack
on the newspaper. Parnell was not a
director of the company, Mr. O'Brien said,
and he did not own a majority of the
stock. He resigned from the directory
purposely, to free himself of possible
pecuniary or criminal resDonsiaflity for
tne paper, mt. u unen himseii naa Dome
that responsibility. He had concurred in
P-irnelPs retirement from the directory.
One of the directors of the paper support
ed Parnell in his attack upon the paper.
O'Brien himself had had nothing to do
with the recapture of the paper. His
friends had doubtless done that.
It was a mournful thing for him. after
having spent vears of his life in founding
the paper, undergoing tne tyranny of the
coercion acts, and -weathering so many
years of a continuous life-and-death strug
gle with Dublin castle, to experience such
treatment at the hauds of the leader he all
but worshiped, and while his hands were
tied by bis absence from Dublin. Still, he
was eager to forget that, if, by any possi
bility, honorable men on both sides can
stay the fatal strife in Ireland.
New York, Dec. 11. The visiting 'Irish
parliamentary envoys tonight issued an
other manifesto. It states that five weeks
ago a home rule victory at the next gen
eral election was almost assured. All that
was needed was to secure the necessary
funds to preserve theevicted tenants from
destruction and keep their organization
complete. The Americans were rapidly
supplying the fund. The causes of the
ruin of the party are a matter for consid
eration oy every true irishman, jarneu
says the treachery of Gladstone and the
corruption of the Irish party were the
causes. The manifesto argues that neither
of these was the cause, aud upholds Mr.
Gladstone's cause, while declaring that
Parnell himself was the only cause of the
present crisis. The signers of the mani
festo appeal to the Irish people to sustain
the majority and save home rule. They
pledge themselves, however, to abide by
the decision of the people.
THE CHEROKEE COMMISSION.
Tahlequau, L T., Dec. 11. Negotiations
progress slowly. The Cherokees have
made answer to the government's propo
sition. For obvious reasons they object to
having it published. When the two com
missions met in Joint session to discuss
the answer, the commission on the part of
the Cherokees, who are in the majority,
moved to exclude the members of the
press. From a reliable source it is ascer
tained that the Cherokee proposition was
very voluminous in detail. They asked
SJ.JK) per ncre, and that the government re
move the Cherokee freedmen from their
present homes and colonize them on the
strip. The nation agrees to give
eighty acres to each adult and
forty acres to each minor, also,
to compensate them for their improve
ments. Thoy also wish to retain a largo
tract of land known as the salt claim, and
whenever any differences arise between the
United States and the Cherokee nation
have a right to carry this difference to the
supreme court of the United States. The
commisson, on the part of the United
States, is known to have objected to sev
eral features of the proposition, and have
submitted briefs to that effect. The Chero
kees, while deliberating on these object
ions, were startled with some gigantic
offers for the land west of the ninety-sixth
meridian, from a syndicate iu Chicago,
offering $10,000,000; another from capital
ists in Kansas City, offering $20,000,000; a
third from the Lucas Cattle company, in
Uolorado, ottering 30,000,000. This is hull
ing the market, aud will have tho desired
effect of blocking the negotiations.

THE LIBERAL UNIONISTS.
JjONDON. uee. n. rue executive com
mitteeof the Liberal Unionists association I only to Poland,
has issued a long manifesto, which con
cludes as follows:
"Parnell and the Parnellites have
alway been an untrustworthy body, upon
whose pledges no reliance could be placed,
and whose parliamentary antecedents
made them unsafe allies for any great
party, aud who.se acts have forced this
consideration upon the minds of many
home rulers, o distinction can be mado
between Parnell and his adherents and the
majority of his party who seek to depose
him. The latter condoned his delin
quencies and accepted his apology, and
now makes a sacrifice of him as a means
of extorting fresh terms from their allies.
The mistake the British home rulers
made was in allowing themselves to
be convinced that either the methods or
the object of the Irish revolutionaries had
changed. Neither the Parnell! te faction
nor the seceuers will accept home rule
without a mental reservation for absolute
separation and complete In-h independ
ence. Any scneme lor home rule oaseu on
their theories and declarations is, and
always has been, illusorj."

CAUSED BY JEALOUSY.
PARIS, Dec II. A terrible tragedy was
enacted today at Clermont Fexrand. A
wedding procession was on its way from
the church where the ceremony had been
performed, when suddenly two shots were
heard in quick succession, and before the
startled guests could realize what had hap
pened, both bride and bridegroom fell life

undetected, but it is suppo-ed the awful

them to sell all real estate that they may

THE CHICAGO CASH.
Chicago, Dec 11. Tho final disposition
of the money subscribed for the Irish cause
on the occasion of the late meeting to
listen to auarcsses oy the Irish envoys,
then in this city, remnins in doubt
The aggregate of subscriptions nnd
money realized from tho sale
of tickets was between 10.
000 and $18,000. Less than half
of this has been realized in cash, as most
most ot the subscribers, in view of the
spiit in the part, have thought it best to
keen their money in their pockets until
the air has cleared. Speaking of the mat
ter todav, .Mr. J. v. Clarice, treasurer of
the tund. said: "I have on hand about
$7,000, which I hold subject to the ioint
instructions of William O'Brien and Tim
othy Harrington. The day before the dele

This motion was warmly espoused by

Mr. Brown, of Logan, intimated very
strongly that very selfish motives actuat

disgraced themselves, and wish to erase all

Mr. Brown of Oklahoma That land Is
