tion. It shows returns of prlvato and paro
chial sohools up to July 1, 1891, and gives
statistics of parochial schools by states

000; the total public school enrollment, in
cludlngabout 03,000 in universltles.schools
for training teachers, etc., nearly 13,730,
COO, and the total enrollment In prlvato
nnd parochial schools not far from 750,000
each. The gain In population from 1850 to
1893 was 133.66 por cent and In school en
rolment 105.15 per cent.
The relations of whlto and colored at
tendance In tho south show that 21.53 por

having more than twlco as many pupils as
till othors and tho Luthcrns about ono
fifth of the wholo numbor.
Public schools apparently havo about
twelve times as many elementary pupils as

great excitement provailcd. The wildest
reports reached Pittsburg. In almost less
time than It takes to tell tho story a special
train conveying oil- men and newspaper
representatives was en routo to tho scene,
eighteen miles on tho Pennsylvania road.
At the intersection of McDonald Creek
and Robb's Run, Smith & Co. had con
structed a huge dam for tho purpose of col
lecting the floating oil. A mlnlaturo lako
of oil has accumulated. This Is near the
enter of the tovtn and on Its border aro
frame dwellings, derricks and tanks.
About 9 o'clock a spark from an oil viell
boiler f eU into Bobb's run, Just a few yards
Above tho lako of oil. Tho oil float
ing on tho water in the run Ignited and in
an instant a broad shcot of flamo rolled up
threateningly. Should tho flro reach tho
lake below tho town was doomed. Thou
sands of hands rushed to tho work of con
structing a dam between tho flamc3 and
the lake and after an hour's hard work,
the tollers heaved a sigh of lollcf when It
was known that all danger was passed.
1 Several hundred barrels of oil nnd a
small tank of oil that had been dipped
from the lako were dostroyed.

Paris, Oct. 14. A reconciliation between

The prlnco was highly Indignant at de

Ireland has lost hor leader, but hot

an English statesman broke our ranks,
abandoned tho flag of independent opposi

and satellites of the British statesman. We

relying upon tho national conviction and
maintained intact the alleglanco to the in
depeodent national party, In tho conviction
that tho people would Justify and support,
Tho great leader Is dead, but tho cause
lives on. Relying on your devotion to Irish
nationality, wo propose to carry on the
struggles until the principles for which ho
lived and died triumph and tho national
unity Is restored. Tho parliamentary part;
is plcdgod to work for Ireland undor the
flag of tho Independent opposition abso
lutoly froo from tho control of any foreign
power or party. This is our rosolutlon.
Its realization depends on you. It involve:
sacrifices and struggles and wo call on you
to mako them.
True to tho principle that wo aro tho In

to call a convention of roproscntatl vo Irish
men to discuss in tho name of tho nation

diately responsible for tho disruption ot
tho national party, who, In obcdlonco
to foreign dictation, hounds to death tho
foremost man of our race, we can have no

thcro can bo no safety. Between them

JUSTICES IN BAD HEALTH.
At Least Tiro Member, of the Federal
Supreme Court Disabled.
Wasuootov, D. C, Oct. 14. It Is ex
pected that thcro will bo a postponement
of all tho ery Important cases boforo
tho supremo court which wcro ex
pected to como up at tbo beginning
of tho October term, which opened
on Monday. Tho Sayward case, tbo
cases Involving tho validity of tho McKin
ley tariff act, tho lottery cases and others
which nro of sufllciont Importance to re
quire that thoy should bo considered by
tho full court, or at least by substantially
a full court, will go over until lato in No
vember. Tho reason given for this Is that thoro
will bo at least two of tho Justices abscut
and probably three. Justico Gray, who
has been 111 with typhoid fever, will not be
ablo to attend nnd tho chief Justice is ex
pected to remain away on account ot tho
serious Illness of his daughter In Chicago.
Tho latest dispatch received from him
stated that her condition was critical,
but that they had not yet given
up all hopo of hor recovery. Her death,
however, was fcarod momentarily. Jus
tico Bradloy is still HI, but though unablo
to get out of bed yesterday ho wrote a note
stating ho would bo on hand at tho meet
ing ot tho court on Monday.
Notwithstanding hlscxtromo ngo Justico
Bradloy has an extraordinary amount of
pluck and ho will probably bo In his seat
on tho bench whon tho court opens. Tho
chief Justico and Justice Gray will bo ab
sent, however, and tho docket Is being pre
pared with tho idea that tho ordinary rou
tlno cases will bo proceeded witb.dlsrcgard
lng tho spoclal assignments. Thcro havo
been about fifty cases bolow tho nverago
filed for this term thus far, but that is not
attributed to the now law authorizing tho
circuit court of appeals, slnco tho Judges of
that court havo not yot been appointed.

Rainmaker Frank Melbourne Agrees to
Moisten Kansas Lands.
Goodland, Kan., Oct 14. Frank Mel
bourne has signed a contract, agreeing to
produce crop rains next season in forty
Western Kansas counties for $20,000.
From the Kansas agricultural reports thi
HUmber. of acres of.larld ill the forty colim
tie! under cultivation in iS&J wcro Bggre:
Sated and tho Australian agreed to water
tho 3,000,000 acres at 10 cents per aero.
It Is n ono-sldcd affair at present, bind
ing Molbourno alone. It Is thought here
that u scparato contract will havo to be
signed with each of tho forty counties
through tbo board of county commis
sioners. Under tho Irrigation act enacted
last winter tbo commissioners nro author
lzed to oto bonds for Irrigating purposes
and this is ono possible solution. Another
Is to raise the amount through notes given
by tho farmers themselves.
It IS expected that the Irrigation com
panies In Coloradd and Kansas will fight
tho proposition. MclbodiuB has every
confidenco in bis ability to glvo the people
Just w hat they have long waited and prayed
Molbourno knows nothing of American
ways and customs. He is nt all times pro
occupied, and if tho men with whom ho
has businoss dealings succeed in getting
him to glvo a few minutes to them they
are fortunate. He takes everything as a
matter of course. Everybody, ho thinks,
Is honest and willing to assist him In dem
onstrating tho success of his discovery.
He is surprised to find opposition front any
source and Imagines that tho very moment
that ho demonstrates his ability to make
lain to tho pcoplo of ono community the
wholo country ought to accept
Although dubbed an Australian the rain
maker is an Orange Irishman. Ho has
twclvo brothers, all of whom expoct to
roll In untold wealth, as a result of their
brother's discovery. His father still re
sides In Ireland, but his sons nro scattered
all over tho world. Frank carpo to this
country about ten years ago, but shortly
left for Australia. He has devoted all his
time to Inventions of different kinds and
when sixteen years of age invented a
churn, which be patented. Ho now has, so
his brothers" say, threo or four Important
Inventions, which ho will make public
nftcr the success of his ralnmaklng dis
covery has been demonstrated. Ills
brother, Will Melbourno, who travels with
him, Is of no assistance to him whntevcr.
Ho Is both egotistical and Ignorant and
well calculated to mako himself obnoxious
to any community. His ono redeeming
trait Is his faith In his brother.
Melbourno continues his experiments
here and this morning tho people gavo him
credit for another drizzling rain. The
weather Is too cold for him to preclpltato
rain under his old methods, and ho Is
changing tbem to conform to tho now con
ditions ho finds In this latitude.

St. Paul, Minn., Oct 14. Tho weather
of the past tow weeks has undono much
of tho good that was dono by tho fine
weather oarly in the season In North Da
kota, and tho farmers of tho northwest
will suffer losses aggregating In tho mil
lions. Tho damago can as yet only bo es
timated, but that tho loss will bo very
great there seems no doubt
Tho railroads had made special arrange
ments to handle a great crop and tho farm
ers considered their own plans amply suf
ficient But so great was tho wheat crop
that at first It was almost impossible to
hlro enough harvest hands to secure the
crop, and a very largo part of it had
to be left standing in the shock.
Then It was found that tho supply
of threshing machines was Insufficient and
that caused a delay which left fully half
the crop still In the fields unthreshed when
the rains came. Rain has been general
and abundant and it is this which has
caused tho greatest loss. There Is stlU a
great shortago of threshing outfits, but
tho weather has prevented the work more
than half the time.
At Jamestown, In tho North Dakota Red
river valley, rain and snow fell Monday
night It was snowing yosterday, and last
week there was but ono full day's wheat
threshing. Reports aro received of grain
sprouting In sovcral stacks.
At Devil's lake, In tho northern part ot
tho stato, a heavy rain fell yesterday,
which will stop threshing several days.
No grain has been stacked, owing to the
scarcity of laborers.
North Dakota reports snow, threshing
stopped entlroly and fears that unless tho
weather clears soon much of tho grain will
bo unfit to thresh. In tho northern part
of the stato thcro will, howe or, bo mora
loss from lack of laborers than from bad
Northwestern Minnesota gives about
tho samo repot t as do tho Dakotas.
It commenced raining again about Crooks
ton Monday and continued all day. There
havo been only a few days of dry woathcr
In four weeks and farmers are getting dis
couraged. In Travorso county nnd cen
tral western Minnesota the lurgcr portion
of the wheat has not yet been threshed
and men and machines wcro greatly need
