Awoclated Presa Dispatches.
Cork, Oct. 29.—John Dillon was pur
rued and attacked last night while driv
ing to attend an anti-Parnellite meeting.
He was plied with stones, and during
the fracas he received a severe blow on
the knee from a stick. The wound is
not of serious nature, but on account of
the swelling,Dilion must keep quiet.
Consequently he has ceased his work of
canvassing on behalf of the nominee of
the McCarthyite candidate for the seat
left vacant in parliament by the death
The fighting which took place be
tween the McCarthyites and Parnelliteß
last night in this city, was more serious
than at first appeared. There was a series
of scrimmages between the contending
parties, the most severe being the one
in which Dillon was disabled. Crowds I
of McCarthyites were upon that occa
sion accompanying Dillon and O'Brien,
who were on their way to attend a Mc-
Carthyite meeting. The McCarthyites
came into collision with a procession of
Parnellites. Neither crowd would give
way to tbe other, and so a general melee
followed, several thousand combatants
taking part. Blackthorns, bricks and ,
stones were used by both parties.
Finally the McCarthyites succeeded in
wrenching the torches from the hands
ol the Parnellites. The victorious Mc-
Carthyites then continued their march.
Upon arriving at the market place
where the meeting was held, O'Brien
. addressed 5000 McCarthyites.
In the meanwhile the Parnellites,
with reinforcements, made another on- !
jlaught upon the McCarthyites. They
charged into the square, slashing right
and left with their blackthorns, and
splitting many heads. The McCarthy
ites, though they fought desperately,
were slowly driven back. Then for a
time the Parnellites held the market j
The McCarthyites soon found strong j
reinforcements, and thus strengthened, j
they again mustered in a compact body
and made a dash at the Parnellites.
After a most desperate battle, the latter
■were routed. Many on both sides
were injured, in addition to thoee
already reported as having been taken j
to the hospital to have their wounds at- I
tended to. '
ISinf'.'.Sr' Scenes, though on a somewhat
more modest scale, occurred at Bandon,
twenty miles from here. During the
fight a number of contestants on both
Bides were severely cat and bruised.
Late this afternoon it seemed that a
collision between the persons present at
two opposing meetings was.imminent.
The threatened melee was averted, how
ever, by the action of herculean John
O'Connor who forced his way through
the dense and excited crowd towards the
spot where a car containing O'Brien, was
standing. Arriving at the car O'Con
nor held a hurried and whispered
conversation with O'Brien, and finally
the two men linked arms and passed
through the crowd. This had a good
effect, for seeing the opposed members
so friendly with each other, the par
tizans allowed their ardor to cool, and
order was soon restored.
In spite of the doctors, Dillon drove
oat this afternoon and addressed several
Later—At a Parnellite meeting to
night, O'Connor, produced a weapon
which he said wars an assegai, and which
he had wrested from the hands of a Mc- |
Carthyite. He indignantly declared that
he would never speak to O'Brien again,
because when he interlered to preserve
peace in the afternoon, O'Brien had the
audacity to say: "Come with me, John,
and I will protect you."
Late tonight a force of Parnellites
marched out and made an attack
on an anti-Parnell meeting. A
free fight ensued. O'Connor re
ceived a wound behind the ear
from a police baton, he says. Showers
of stones were thrown and many persons
were injured, including William Red
mond. At a late hour the streets are
still filled with an excited crowd.
Dublin, Oct. 29.—Patrick MeDermott,
the McCarthyite candidate, was elected
without opposition to the seat in the
commons left vacant by the death of
John Pope Hennesey.
A MATTER OF URGENCY.
The French Senate Acta Favorably To
wards American Fork.
Pabis, Oct. 29.—The senate today de
clared argent the discussion on the ques
tion of the duty on salt meats. Minis- |
ter of Commerce Roche read reports ;
showing that trichinosis did not exist in j
Great Britain or Belgium, although I
tluwe countries imported American pork '
freely. The disease in Germany, he j
declared, was due to native meats.
All learned bodies, he declared, had
stated that American meats were innoc
uous, and their admission into France
would-be a great boon to the working
people of the country. After further
discussion of the bill, the government
demanded its adoption on the ground
that the demand of the United States j
was legitimate, and France ought to !
comply with it in the interests of the !
trade of the two countries. The motion !
■was then adopted, 179 to G4, and the
senate proceeded to discuss the details
of the measure.
TOO MUCH BONK
And Not Enough Meat the Complaint of
the Grenadier Guarda.
London, Oct. 29.—A report sent to
official headquarters in regard to the
recent trouble among the Grenadier
guards, practically confirms Truth's
story, except that it says only the cor
porals were arrested. The report denies
that there was any mutiny, and declares
that the trouble was merely a childish
refusal on the part oi the men to eat
the food provided for them. Because of
their complaint that there was too much
bone in the meat, the rations were
ignored. There has been no trouble
since the incident referred to.

STORIES OF SHIP WRECK.
The Loss of the Ship FIJI and the Steamer
Sax Francisco, Oct. 29.—Advices per
the steamer Alameda state that further
particulars of the loss of the ship Fiji
were received at Sydney before the Ala
meda sailed. Fifteen of the crew were
landed by a life line which was sent to
the wreck from Warrnambool, via Port
Campbell. Twelve of the crew were
drowned. The ship broke up, and the
beach was strewn with wreckage. The
scene of the wreck is three miles east of
the Gallibrand river. The Fiji struck
against a low reel a short distance from
shore. Sailor Gebauhr, one of
the survivors of the wreck, said
she was from Liverpool, having sailed
previously from Hamburg, on May 29th.
Captain Vickers, Second Mate Camp
bell, four apprentices, a sail-maker and
seven sailors were saved. Chief Officer
Brisbane, Third Mate Lardman, cook,
steward and Apprentice Porter are
known to have been drowned.
The steamer Wallarah, of Lund's An
chor line, was wrecked some time atro
at Lassen island, near Cape Town, while
en route from London to the colonies.
No lives were lost. The ship and cargo
were valued at £150,000.
A MARKHAM REFORM.
The Governor Proposes to Change the
System of Pardoning.
Sacramento, Oct. 29. — Governor
Markham has decided to inaugurate a
new plan in regard to the granting of
pardons. He thinks the pardoning
action should be more opeu and public
than in the past, and will receive all ap
plications and carefully examine each
one. If he deems the action of the
court proper and just, he will deny the
application. If after reading the
appeal he finds there is rea
son for executive clemency, he
will submit the subject to
the board of prison directors, and ask
them by a vote to express their opinion
in regard to the prisoner's worthiness to
receive clemency. The board will hear
what the warden has to say of the con
vict's prison life, and they may examine
I fully all the circumstances that may be
brought to their attention. If the board
! approves the application, then the
governor will exercise his discretion as
to whether a pardon shall be granted or
not. The governor will insist that these
meetings of the board shall be public.
News or the Great Disaster in .lapan
Yokohama, Oct. 29.—There have been
terrific earthquakes along the southern
coast of Nipon, Hondo and the other
principal islands of Japan. The shocks
were most severe at Kobe. Hundreds
of houses were destroyed, but the extent
of the fatalities is unknown, and may
remain so for some time to come, owing
to the destruction of the telegraph lines.
In addition there is considerable dam
age along the coast.

AriA, Samoa, Oct. 15, (via San Fran
cisco), Oct. 20.—Baron Senft Yon Pil
sach, president of the municipal
council and adviser to King Malietoa,
has resigned. The reason he assigns is
that certain white residents of Samoa
have been writing letters to the king
about German currency and other mat
ters, and that the kidg wrote direct to
them in reply. Pilsach claims that no
one should either write or speak to King
Malietoa before first securing the presi
dent's permission, thereby actually
assuming the position of dictator of the

that he would hand over the funde here

collected by them before the arrival of
Two days before he resigned Baron
Yon Pilsach stated that he intended to
hand over the archives of the munici
pality and the funds to Mr.Weber, man
ager of a German trading firm, who had
been appointed president pro tern. The
coubuls. however, contended that he was
exceeding his powers, and that while he
remained in the country he could not
relegate his powers to others, as the
treaty does not make provision for a case
He afterward requested permission to
withdraw his resignation, but the king
told him it was out of his power and
must go to the treaty powers.
It is contended that he is incapable of
tbe position, and it is further contended
that the position should not be filled at
all, and that the taxpayers should be al
lowed to elect a mayor and allow him a
email salary for expenses.
The papers are full of discussions as
to the expenses of the government, and
it was shown in one communication
that while the total revenue collected
was but |20,000, the expenditures to
October Ist, amounted to over $22,000,
fur salaries for officials under the Berlin
treaty, with many items for which no
provision has been made.
Mataafa has at last been proclaimed a
rebel, and all the chiefs who are sup
porting him, have had their lands con
fiscated, and everybody is forbidden to
assist them in any way. The American
consul haß been instructed by his gov
ernment, to inform Mataafa that the
government was annoyed at the
latter's attitude, and that he should
at once break up his party at
Malic. There are only about 3000 in
his party, hut it is stated that fully half
the population are against the treaty
government, chiefly because of its inac
The attitude of the natives in the Sa
moan group haß changed toward the
whites in the last few months, much of
the former friendliness having died out.
This some of the prominent chiefs as
cribe to the impression which has got
abroad that the whites are responsible
for all the trouble in Samoa, and they
express the opinion that if another war
broke out, the whites in some of the
outlying stations would not be as safe as
The chief justice is still away on his
vacation, aud a large number of cases
are awaiting his return, for trial, the
land commissioners having commenced
hearing claims. There are thirty-seven
hundred claims now on hand. The
commissioners are passing upon one
claim of McArthur & Co., who had pos
session of a piece of land for cix years,
and ha.c erected buildings on it.
They claimed a quit-claim some years
ago from Chief Sevmavatafa, who'now
disputes the claim on the ground that
he did not know what he was signing.
If the native chiefs pursue this line of
action, the titles acquired from other
natives will cause much more trouble
before finally adjusted.
The United States government haß
perfected its title to important and com
manding points at Pago-Pago, and the
coaling station is regarded as one of the
j strongest positions in the South Pacific.

A prolonged debate took place in the
New South Wales assembly, September
29th, on the management of railways by
a board of Railway commissioners. A
section of the assembly headed by Mr.
Schey, were opposed to the commission
ers, desiring to increase the power of
parliament in the matter, or rather to
abolish the non-political system of the
managemnt of railways. Schey charged
the commissioners with being corrupt,
but gave no particulars. Sir Henry
Parkes, the premier, then responded
at length, according his support to the
present railway policy. He pointed out
that the resolution which Schey desired
to pass amounted to an order to the
government to bring in a bill to amend
the railways act in the direction of cur
tailing the powers of the commissioners.
He declared that the house might pass a
resolution for the purpose, but the gov
ernment would not obey it. The pre
mier's speech virtually converted the
motion into one of censure of the ad
ministration. The motion was finally
negatived by 43 to 28.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Why, simply this : A few weeks ago we opened a store in
Pomona, filling it with the choicest Clothing, Hats and Furnish
ing Goods in the country. Now, we found it necessary to move
these new goods into our Los Angeles House, and thus over
stocked ourselves to such an extent that we must make every
possible endeavor—at any sacrifice—to unload, not only for the
purpose of making room, but to raise cash for immediate use.
Now, we don't want to revive that old fake of a closing-out
sale, a fire sale, a removal sale, but a sale we must have at any
cost; in other words : You can buy goods of us at and below
wholesale prices FOR CASH, which we positively must have,
and which we can easily obtain, if you can te induced to visit our
store and examine goods and prices.

London, Oct. 29.—1n Canadian circles
in England great disappointment is ex
pressed at the failure of the British
postoffice authorities to make the neces

English government to undertake to
fumish'a postal service equal to the best
similar service between New York and

the efforts made in this direction, the
