Londox, Oct. 7. A sharp and probably
salutary shock has been given to the highest
social circles by the startling exposure in
regard to the prevalence of drunkenness
among aristocratic ladies made by Lady
Frederick Cavendish and the Duchess of
Bedford at the Church Congress. Hitherto
allegations of widespread drinking prac
tices among women of rank and fashion
have been deemed prejudiced gossip; but
nothing that rumor ever sujgested equals
the outspoken revelations made by these
highly placed leaders of society.
Lady Frederick Cavendish said she had
recently been staying at a country mansion
where roomy dining room chairs were still
used, the seats of which were deeply curved
to cave the gentlemen from falling out of
alter dinner; that although heavy drinking
had been abandoned by the men, the women
were becoming inveterate tipplers; that
many ladies have recourse to "pick-me-ups"
at 11 A. M. brandy and soda during the
day, wine at dinner and something hot at
Polite Names for Vulgar Tipples.
I She said she found ladies who could not
get through the exertions of the London
season without taking a "cordial," a pretty
name for a dram kept handy; and that
after a certain morning -concert a lady be
side her had called for a "white-cup," a
deceptive name for a champagne sup.
Lady Cavendish protested especially
against the new fashion of young ladies and
old ones accompanying the gentlemen to
the smoking room after dinner and sharing,
not only the cigars, but also the spirits.
She said that a distinguished physician had
assured her that many ladies who were liv
ing idle lives had consnlted him for nervous
symptoms which revealed, in perfect un
consciousness on their part, a condition of
alcoholism bordering on delirium tremens;
but that alcohol was not the only fashiona
ble failing, as chloral, chlorodyne and mor
phia were taken in secrecy in boudoirs, and
were adding to the maladies of modern
The Dncbess of Bedford, taking up the
theme, put the blame for these evils on the

nerves required a fillip. The argument of
the necessity of stimulation, she said, af

Total Abstinence the Only Safe Flan.
The real remedy is avoidancb of mis
chievous forms of excitement, together
with total abstinence. The Duchess main
tained that "moderation" is a very elastio
term and would not meet the evils like
abstinence. It is a serious thing, she said,
for Christian workers, pledged to fight the
drinking practices of society, to reject the
practice of abstinence, and she besought
everybody interested to avoid the banter
and jesting so commonly used in reference
to the greatest evil -of modern life. The
whole topic is deeply stirring the social

Mr. Schnadhorst has recently offered his
resignation of the control of the Liberal
Executive, urging that his increasing deaf
ness makes it difficult for him to ensure
such effective management as is desirable.
The leaders of the party, in the meantime,
decline to accept his resignation, but they
will relieve him of a portion of his func
tions, assigning them to his assistant, Mr.
Hudson, who will ultimately succeed to the
office. Although Mr. Schnadhorst is so
deaf that personal intercourse with him is
difficult, he has never been mentally more
fit to supervise the whole work of the or
ganization. The sensational reports current of the
prevalence of severe depression in the com
mercial and agricultural interests of Great
Britain, have caused the i associated Press
representative here to make special in
quiries at the Labor Bureau and in other
quarters. The officials oi the Labor Bureau
stated that while the prevailing depression
is considerable, it is not unprecedented.
Five Tor Cent of British Workmen Idle.
Taking the returns of all of the trades
unions reporting during September, 5 per

trade is the worst affected. X ext come the
cotton, iron and steel industries. No signs
of improvement in the ship building trade
are likely to be seen in the near future. It
ceems probable that not less than from 20

As is usual during recurrent periods of
depression, the building trades are the last
to suffer. Masons and carpenters will be
fully employed during the winter, and
their prospects are good at an increased
rate for over time, with a reduction of their
hours of labor from US to 52 hours weekly.
The sum of information resulting from
other inquiries, is as follows:
On the Clyde the wages of engineers and

Instead of 15s. Many farmers have paid off
their laborers for the winter. The low
prices of wheat are reducing the cultivators
to beggary, and the agricultural depression
is likely to create a greater public clamor,
as the various interests of the landlords,
farmers and laborers each have the power to
sound the political trump.
A Farmers' Alliance Movement In England.
The farmers project a National Agricul

rents will be advocated. M. Gardner, Pres
ident of the Board of Agriculture, accdm
panied by Mr. Gillespie, Commissioner of
Labor, is "about to make a tour of Scotland,
where he will hold conferences with
farmers and stock raisers. Judging from
casual expressions, Mr. Gardner has not a
ghost of a new policy except as his action
tends to reverse Mr. Chaplin's of a protec

The French Victorious In a Desperate Battle
in King Behanzln's Country.
Taris, Oct 7 .Colonel Dodds, com
mander of the French forces operating
against King Behansin, of Dahomey, has
telegraphed to the Minister ot Marine an
account of a battle between his command
and the Dahomeyans on October i The
natives occupied a strong position and a
desperate fight followed the attack by the
French. A thick bushwood surrounded
the Dahomeyans' position, which afforded
The battle lasted an hour, at the end of
which the Dahomeyans fled in disorder and
were pursued by the French. The natives,
being thoroughly familiar with the country,
found little difficulty in escaping. Five
Europeans and three Senegalese were
killed, and 21 Europeans and 13 natives
were wounded. The enemy's loss is un
known, but they left on the field 200 dead,
including 20 of King Bebanzin's famous
Amazons. These bodies were all counted
within ten yards of the French lines. A
judgment can thus be formed of the bravery

France has against Germany, for the French
claim that King Behanzin, besides the 2,000
rifles allowed him bv treaty, has an almost

repeating rifles that have been furnished
him by German traders.
The'battle was waged for three hours.
Both sides lough t fiercely, but the Amazons
were particularly noticeable for their
bravery. After the enemy were driven off

A KEW AND GOOD USE FOE DEMOCRATS
Frederick, Md., Oct 7. When Hon.
Charles Foster, Secretary of the Treasury,
and party arrived here to-night they were
given a most vociferous reception. They
were escorted to the hall, where the speeches
were to be delivered, by a big procession
and two bands of music. Fully 1,600 peo
ple crowded within the hall to hear Repub
licanism expounded. Other speakers fol
lowed the Secretary of the Treasury. There
was great enthusiasm.
Secretary Foster began his speech by
contrasting the records of the two parties
during and since the war. He pointed to the
splendid record of the Republican party on
all the momentous questions ot the war and
of reconstruction days. He would not pre
tend to say there was no excuse for the ex
istence of the Democratio party, adding!
"The country needs a good, strong party to
criticise, to find iault, to scold, if you
please; as fault finders thev are a remark
able success. They may be denominated a
common scold. As critics I am not so cer
tain of their value. But as a governing
party this country has no use for them."
He gave the Democrats credit for unusual"
frankness in this campaign. They denied
the constitutionality of protection, and
came out for the habilitation of State banks
of issue. He took up the Democratio charge
that the Treasury is bankrupt, criticising
especially Vice Presidental Candidate Ste
venson for gross ignorance on this question.
"If," said the Secretary, "Mr. Stevenson
were not ignorant upon the subject, he
would know that this administration bad
redeemed and paid off $259,093,650 of its
debt at a cost of more than 296,000,000, and
with a laving in Interest by the time the
right to pay matures oi $55,352,493 51.
TJneqoaled Credit of This
"What about the inability of the Govern
ment to pay abont $50,000,000 of 4 per
cent bonds, the right to pay them maturing
September 1, 1691, and which Mr.'Steven
son says we conld not pay? The holders of
more than $25,000,000 of these bonds re
quested that they be continued at 2 per
cent, and this administration enjoys the
enviable position of having placed a Gov
ernment loan at a lower rate of interest
and in a more advantageous position than
any Government on earth, and illustrated
by a political test that the credit of the
United States Government, under the
Presidency of Harrison, enjoys the highest
and best credit it ever before enjoyed. The
remaining $25,000,000 have been paid.
"Upon this subject of the condition of
the Treasury the Democratio partyno doubt
felt that the appropriations made by the
Fifty-first Congress (the 'billion dollar Con
gress,' as they call it), would cause such a
heavy drain upon the Treasury as to be em
barrassing a situation that would have de
lighted them, and the Treasury, it is true,
is not overflowing with money, and doubt
less requires closer scrutiny and care than
The Secretary naturally would be pleased
with all efforts, by whomsoever made, that
would prospectively improve the situation.
He then sarcastically spoke of the gratifica
tion given him by the announcement of the
Democratio leaders in the Fifty-second Con-
fress that they would reddce appropriations
100,000,000, and of his plans for using this
Only a Delusion and a Snare.
"But, alas!" said he, "this promise
turned out to be a delusion and a snare;
my pleasurable hopes were dashed to
pieces. The Democrats discovered that
ours was 'a billion-dollar country,' that
after all they had said in denunciation of
the 'billion-dollar Congress,' they were not
only unable to reduce appropriatlons"5100,
000000, but they actually increased them
$40,000,000. Notwithstanding the enorm
ous appropriations, this Congress did crip
ple tbe service in many of its branches by
lack of adequate provision.
"While the Democrats of this Congress
were at work increasing the appropriations
they were continually charging that the
treasury was bankrupt For more than
18 months the cry of a bankrupt treasury
has been kept going, but at all times tbe
treasury has promptly met every obligation
of the Government Our Democratic friends
have put themselves in tbe unpatriotio at
titude of desiring a bankrupt treasury.
This administration does not expect to add
to their pleasure in this respect The
revenues are increasing at the rate of
$3,000,000 a month over last year. Of
course there is an increase of expenditures,
owing principally to payments for pensions,
but the first three mouths of the year show
a net gain in cash of $5,203,541 3L"
Secretary Foster on the TarMC
Taking up the tariff question, Secretary
Foster said he did not propose to discuss
the constitutionality of protection. Wash
ington, Jefferson and Jackson settled that
long ago. The Secretary then quoted
statistics to snow tne oenents arising irom
the policy of protection. While the popu
lation of the country has increased, the
wealth of the country has increased 293 per
cent Hi referred to the increased deposits
of the savings banks as illustrating the
savings of woreingmen, the Increase In
capital invested in manufactures, the in
crease in wages. Common labor had doubled
in price and skilled labor bad increased 125
per cent, while the cost of living had de
creased 15 per cent He defended the Mc
Kinley law, and said that while no law of
this kind can be absolutely perfect, upon
the whole he believed "this law comes
nearer the ideal of the policy of protection
than any previous enactment Cue effect
not expected by its framers or friends was
the crop of campaign liars it produced
within two months of its passage and ap
proval." Two years' experience had re
luted the prophecies of those compaigners.
The Benefits of the McKinley Law.
The Secretary added: "Under the oper
ations of the McKinley bill the revenue has
been decreased $51,367,650. The value of
the free imports and also the percentage of
the same in 1892 were the largest in the his
tory of our commerce, so thp.t trade is freer
than ever before, and largely of such
articles as are not produced in this country
and which enter into the daily consumption
of the people. The reciprocity of the new
tariff act has opened new foreign markets,
and our exports to the countries with which
reciprocity relations have been established
have increased by the sum of $10,286,881.
Established industries have oeen stim
ulated and new industries started which
are giving employment to hundreds of
thousands of men, so that great prosperity
exists in all lines of trade, while in nearly

sonal experiences the Secretary gave a de

former years. If we returned to the system
we would surely have repeated the curse of
Speaking of the international money con
ference the Secretary said: "I am in pos
session of advices that lead me to hope that
uoh action will be taken by this conference
as will result in a satisfactory solution of
the vexed silver question. Being a bi
metallist myself, and earnestly desiring
that silver shall take its rightful place be

HILL AND HIS DEAL
Spite of It, Bis Friends Are Betting
Money on Cleveland,
New Yoek, Oct 7. "Senator Hill has
made his deal. From an excellent source
I have it that the Democratio State Com
mittee will indorse the Republican nomi
nation of Charles Andrews for Judge of the
Court of Appeals," says an Albany
dispateh to the Herald. 'The Cleveland
men are much disturbed over this pro
gramme. They fear that the Senator
intends to knife Cleveland, and
have taken this step to prevent
conviction after electftn. With no
contest in the State, if Cleveland is beaten
there would be no telling what did it If,
however, a Hill candidate for Jndge ran
ahead of Cleveland it would be pretty evi
dent that there had been treachery. It
is the Hill shrewdness in working to have
Andrews indorsed that makes the Cleveland
men excited over the reported deal They
want a Democratio nomination for Judge
made so as to 'hold tabs' on Hill, and they
swear they will break the deal.
"These men seem to me to be unneces
sarily alarmed. There is no evidence that
Hill will play Cleveland false. I find Hill
men betting on Cleveland, which is a pretty
good sign of their personal loyalty.
Hill's object in not wanting "a
Democrat nominated for the Court of Ap
peals is more likely to be because he fears
that while he is loyal, many of the over
zealous Hill men may vote for the Judge
and against Cleveland.''
HABBIS0N HEABTILY EULOGIZED
At the Quarter-Millennial Celebration of the
Town of Wobuxn.
WoBtntN, Mass., Oct 7. It is estimated
that 20,000 strangers were in town to-day,
the second of the quarter-millennial celebra
tion. The weather is all that could be de
sired, and the big procession, the feature
of the forenoon, was a pronounced success.
The 'climax of the great celebration came
this afternoon in the banquet in the
new armory. Ei-Mayor Johnson performed
the duties of toastmaster in a most graceful
manner. In his introductory address he
called attention to tbe fact that three Presi
dents of the United States Franklin
Fierce, Grover Cleveland and Benjamin
Harrison traced their ancestry to families
now or formerly of Woburn. His mention
of the name of Grover Cleveland brought
out a burst of enthusiastio applause, but
when he spoke the name of President Har
rison it was greeted with a perfect ovation
of cheers and clapping of hands.
. The first toast was "The President of the
United States," and after a brief letter of
regret had been read irom President Harri
son, his representative, in the p'erson of
Hon. John W. Foster, Secretary of State,
was presented, and was given a reception
that must have stirred his heart with de
light His eulogy of President Harrison
was well worded and heartily applauded.
BOLTERS IN KANSAS
Protest Against Their Party Being Turned
Over to the Populltes.
Topeka, Kan., Oct 7. The anti-fusion
straightout or bolting Democrats of Kansas
met here to-day in State convention. About
400 delegates were present when the Chair
man rapped for order. The temporary or
ganization was made permanent, and then
the resolutions were introduced and adopt
ed. They eulogize the Democratio national
platform and ticket, bnt denounce as an un
paralleled political crime the action of the
State Convention of July 6, which attempt
ed to bind the Democrats to the snpport of
the People's party State ticket.
The resolutions further deny the charges
of the People's party platform and leaders
that the State is on the verge of political
and moral ruin; oppose the enactment of
any legislation tending to impair obliga
tions or credit, and declare that every Dem
ocrat is tree to exercise his individual
Judgment in voting for State officers. A
engthy address to voters, similar in char
acter to the resolutions, wasjriso presented.
HILL A VERY BUSY MAN.
He Has Speeches to Make in Six of the

Albany, N. Y., Oct 7. It was reported
that an invitation had been extended to

know nothing about the San Francisco trip
except what I see in afternoon papers. I
would prefer to sav hothing about it until
I know more about it"
It is not expeoted here that Senator Hill
will accept the reported invitation extended
to him by California Democrats. He has
an extensive campaign tour now before him,
ami with only four weeks remaining before

a fortnight's trip to the Pacific coast He
has promised to speak in Virginia, West

Exactly how much money he has hidden

many different stories about tbe amounts

he had several thousand dollars there, and
that he drew all out but $240. This was as
certained by his brother, John, a few days
before he started on the road last month
with his "Hustler"1 company.
Several persons who would not say any

home the bottle was dry. Another time he
purchased a lot of baby powder and some
bunion plasters which he did not need.
Tuesday morning he met a farmer with a
load of hay. He bought it, but insisted on
paying ?20 for it, although the; farmer only
wanted 815. When the load was delivered
Harry had no room in his barn for it, so he
sold it to one of his neighbors for $10.'
. One of the phases of Harry's disordered
mind was a desire to bathe himself several
times a day with witch hazel. He frequent
ly purchased six and eight bottles of witch
hazel a aay. ie naa in nis nouse a large
quantity of bric-a-brac ot all kinds that he
purchased last year, after he became the
owner of tbe summer home here. This he
offered to give to several of his friends, but
Mrs. John Kernell was told of his actions,
and she induced him to give it to her for
safe keeping, and she now has it at her cot
tage. The First Signs or a Falling Mind.
The first sign that Kernell's mind was
weakening was the wonderful fancy he ex
hibited for animals of all kinds. He pur
chased, in addition to two fine horses, two
teams of pretty little ponies and a full
blooded milph Jersey cow, a monkey, a
goat, several dogs, a lot of fine chickens, a
parrot and an opossum.
After he came here, a few weeks ago, he
spent the greater portion of his time in
taking the horses ana ponies to and from
the Fenton farm, near Deal Beach, where
he paid their board. He took them to the
farm one day and then would bring them
back to hiB cottage early the next morning.
After his wife, "Queenie Vassar," took
Baby Willie to New York, Harry became
angry about tbe cow one day and sold the
valuable animal for $25. No one knows
what he did with some of the other ani
mals. He has given away a number of
costly articles of all kinds.
His appetite was enormous and he would
eat 15 to 20 times a day, and he would go to
the table every time he happened to think
of food. He would arise before daylight
almost every day and sit at the table several
hours waiting for his breakfast to be
served. He went to the city several times
and created scenes in the dressing room of
his wife at Hoyt's Madison Square Theater,
where she is playing in "A Trip to China
town." Several times Kernell awakened his 4-year-old
son, Harry, Jr., at 3 o'clock in the
morning and forced tbe child to wash and
dress for school. "
Harry Kernell Not a Drinking Man.
In spite of all reports, Kernell has never
drank anything except an occasional glass
of ale. , He was taken to the asylum by
Mrs. John Kernell, who told him her hus
band was ill and she wanted him to go to
the hospital with her. All the way, curi
ous to relate, Harry talked abont Billy
Scanlan, although no one had spoken of
him. He insisted that he had seen Mrs.
Scanlan that morning, and that she wanted
him to go and see her demented husband.
When he reached the asylum he refused to
enter the building until told that Bloom
ingdale was the name of the man who lived
there, and he had his name placed over the
As soon as Kernell entered the asylum
the physicians sent for Scanlan. When he
came into the office, with great emotion he
said: "My God, Harry, what has brought
you here to this plaoe?" Harry shook
hands with Scanlan and began telling about
the alleged theatrical engagements he had
secured at heavy salaries.
This afternoon Harry's ponies were taken
back to Fenton's farm, where they will be
boarded for the present ' The trotter Peter,
which was so badly injured last Saturday
by being partly forced through a barb wire
fence by one of the ponies, could not be
taken to the farm, and it is a question if it
wil!not be necessary to kill him.
Evangelical I,utherans to Establish a Home
for the Aged on the Korthside.
Oil Citt, Oct 7. Special At the
meeting to-day of the Eastern District of
the Evangelical Lutheran Joint Synod of
Eastern Ohio and adjacent States, Bev. P.
M. Beidenbach, of Pittsburg, read a paper
on "The Church's Mission With Begard to
the Rapid Growth of Our Large Cities."
The paper and its subsequent discussion
were to tbe point that the only way of rais
ing the standard of morality in these large
cities is through the power of the everlast
ing Gospel of Jesus Christ
The Committee on the President's Re
port referred this afternoon to one of the
most important matters that will come up
during the meeting of the Synod the es
tablishment of a home for the aged. Two
Allegheny gentlemen, G. D. Simon and F.
Hespenheider, have subscribed $5,000 and
$2,000 respectively for the establishment of
such an institution, provided it is located
in Allegheny or vicinity. The considera,
tion of the matter to-morrow or latter will
result in the appointment of a committee
ot ministers and laymen to proceed with
the formal arrangements for tne establish
ment of the home. It is almost certain
that it will be located in Allegheny.

CoFFEryiLiE,' Kax., Oct 7. It is
learned by a dispatch irom Wichita that
Ollie Ogee, who it was supposed was the
only member of tbe Dalton gang to escape,
is the're and has been there for nine months
past He works in the packing houses, and
his foreman says he has not missed a day's
work in the last 'three months, so It is im
possible for him to 'have been with the
Coffeyville robbers. Dr. ' Wood, Ogee's
foster father, says' he cannot understand
how Ogee's name became connected with
that of the Daltons. The identity of the
escaped bandit, if one did escape, is unknown.

I was sick in bed at our home on our farm
when we received the news-or the awful
affair, but managed to come with mother
and the others. We had not seen the boys
for two years, and had no idea where they
werejor what thev were doing. I never had
much in common with the ones who lie here
deal and dying, as I am a farmer and try to
be a good citizen. I wish you would state
that mother and I have no ill feeling against
the people of Coffeyville, and no words of
censure. They simply did their duty, and
while we naturally deplore the loss of our
boys, we also sorrow for tbe citizens who
gave up their lives in defense of the town,
Emmett tells me he has been treated better
than be hoped for by your people, and we
are feeling sad, but not angry.
Broadwell and"E. B. Wilcox, brother and

Mrs. Cacace Says Suo Was Denounced by a
Rejected Custom Inspector.
NEW Yoek, Oct 7. Special Mrs.
Campbell Cacace made public to-day a lot
of letters purporting to have been written
to her by Special Inspector Charles H.

tended thereby to substantiate the accusa
tion she made yesterday that the inspector,
who, with Inspector Sengers, seized a lot of
pictures which she had imported as house
hold goods, seized the pictures because she
would not permit him to make love to her.
The first letter begins "Dear Mrs. Camp

paragraph is as follows: "I hope I need not
emphasize how very happy a part of that
letter made me.
Mrs. Campbell Cacace says he refers
merely to an invitation to visit Saratoga.
Another part of the letter refers to an en
closed money order. The last letter is
official and formal.

The Famous SteubenviHe litigation End
In the Defendant's Favor.
Steubenvtxlb, Oct 7. Special Thej
celebrated "moon-eyed horse" case, which
has exhausted all the horse knowledge of
tbe two County Courts, where it has been
fought over since the spring of 1891, was
finally decided to-day. The defendant,
who played the "moon-eyed horse" on the
plaintiff, won. Both parties live in Warren
township. Nearly two years ago Henry
Merkle sold a sound horse to George
Medilh Two weeks after the sale the horse
went blind. Veterinary experts pronounced
the disease hereditary, declaring that It
could not develop in the short time men
tioned, and, therefore, the seller must have
known of the animal's defect Then earner
the long legal fight.
The queer feature of the case was that
while the horse was unquestionably blind
at times, at others he was blessed with
better than normal sight The moon's,
changes did the business, the brute's vision
varying as the moon waxed or waned.
Finally scientific knowledge pronounced
the case one of periodic ophthalmia. Merkls
made good his defense that he sold the
horse on trial, and that up to the time tne
trial ended and the horse was accepted,
there was nothing the'matter with it
