special Oable Dispatch to the N. Y. 8!ar.
LONDON, Septeiber 28.- Mr. Parnoll's
letter to Mr. Fitzgerald, President of the
league in America, is hotly assailed by
some of the leading government organs.
The main Tory argument is that evictions
are not general and arc diminishing. The
Parnellites are charged with trumping up
imaginary cases of eviction and represent
ing a state of affairs that has no foundation
in fact. The landlords, on the other hand,
are held up to public ad liration as lenient
and forbearing under ciunstances of ex
treme provocation. They are described
as reduced to the verge of ruin by the rc
fusal'of their tenants to pay the rents justly
due. Finally, the statement that evictions,
instead of being general, are rapidly dimin
ishing, is cappe( by the bold assertion that
it would be next to impossible for Mr. Par
nell to point out in these days a really
A singular illustration of the vclue of
these declarations is fernished in the col
umns of the tandurd itself, the most in
fluential Tory daily in the kingdom. here
we find a matter of fact repo t of a case of
eviction, which for cold-baloodecd cruelty it
would be ditilcult to beat. in the instance
referred to, one of the members of the
family to be evicted was a dying woman.
The knowledge that she was at. the roint
of death had no weight with the evictora.
The scene that ensued cause( keen distress
among the onlookers, who were powerless
to interfere without bringing on themselves
serious conse(Iuences. There have been
ninny well authenticated cases of eviction
of persons whose removal was almost cer
tain death; but the Tory papcrs iitore
them in their attacks on the ease na(le out
by the Parnellites. A reference to the
latest published returns of the Irish land
commission falls to bear out the at.sertionts
of the champions of eviction, and fully sus
taius the allegations of the Parnellites. A
reduction of the number of evictions is
shown in certain localiths, but over the
whole country the number is inereasctl.
The Tories appear to have taken the soli
tary cases of reduction and alplied them
to the country at large. The Liberal press
generally, except the extreme Unionist
press, favorably notice Mr. IPareali's let t er.
Reports current to-night at the clubs
point to an extraordinary at tetmpt on the
part of Bismarek to cripple British intlu

the view of inducing F'rance to enter into a

statesmen to a schemu+ of foreign conquest,
the main objct of which is the ejection of
the British from lX:yp, and the annexa
tion of that countryv to the French enipire.
Bfatmarck's Journal d' .1lsare openly ad
vises the French to prepare for a (amnpaign
to drive the lEnglish nut of Egypt and seize
the short cut to 111(1 in. An emissary sent
by Bisnarek to Paris lhas been preaceling
the mine doctrine to M. do Freycinet, wit Ii
whom he had three interviews before he
returned to (ermnany. The Debats frankly
adopts the suggestion, anld judging from
French susceptilility on the Egyptian

BARTOW, N. Y., September 80.-A ter
rific explosion occurred at the Ditmar
Powder Works at Baychester, on the liar
Icm river branch of the New York and
New Haven railroad, about 10 o'clook this
morning, resulting in the instant death of
four men employed in the factory. The
explosion occurred in the packing house, a
one-story frame building 20x30 feet, in the
center of the grounds and about two Ihun
dred yards from the main factory, a large
building near the water, where the bulk of
the giant powdler and nitro-glycorino used
lo the ace(uclet works is manufactured.
The n)Un were hard at work putting up
lund packmng c:lrtridges, when suddenly an
xplosion occurred, shattering the building
to splinters and blowing four men to frag
iniits. '[lhe explo(ing powder, of which
there was a large quantity, shot up in the
ir to a heigl. of fifty feet, a nd the splinters
;)f the buildini; were blown a mile away.
The inames of the victims were Ernest
D)ralcn, John lHusch, Max Shafholt and
leinhart. Nothing was left of them cx
aept fragments of their bodies. Ilands,
feet, legs, arias, pieces of skulls, Iackboms
and charred bita of flesh were scattercd in
every direction from h;U to 0U feet from
the packing house
Max Crager, foreian of the works, says
the explosion was caused by two muen shoot
