Sold Kobbery of a Mexican Central Train
A Xear El Pud, Tex. Partially Foiled.
'El Paso, Tex., Nov. L When the Mex
ican Central north bound passenger train,
consisting of an engine, five freight cars,
a baggage and express car and two.passen
ger coaches, had reached a point twelve
miles this side of Ban Jose and sixty-two
miles from El Paso three masked men
crawled over the tender of the engine,
covered the engineer and fireman with
four six-shooters and compelled them to
stop the train. They then uncoupled the
two passenger cars and leaving them ran
on with the Test of the train. The Wells
Fargo messenger tried to get a Mexican, M.
T. "Villeggs, started out of the car, but the
robbers fired into the car and drove him
Six miles this side of the first stop tho
robbers stopped again and broke in the
end door of the express car. While they
were doing so the messenger jumped out
of the side door and ran off in the dark
ness, carrying the key to the big iron safe,
in which most of tho money and valuables
In his charge were stored. The robbers,
therefore, got only two packages of coin
silver amounting to $2,G00. The outlaws
next uncoupled the engine and came on
with that alone, running to within three
miles of Juarez (Paso del Norte), where
they abandoned the engine. Before leav
ing'it they started it back down the road
with a wido opon throttle aud it ran about
four miles stopping for want of steam.
The robbers are supposed to have come
across the river, but there is no clew to
their identity except that thoy were Amer
icans. There is but one telegraph station be
tween San Jose and Juarez at Samalt
yuca, forty-five miles from San Jose and
thirty from Juarez and the robbers, or a
confederate of theirs, had cut the tele
graph wire below San Jose before the
hold-up. They also cut it where they
stopped the train and again just this side
of Samalayuca, thus preventing connec
tion. The agent at Samalayuca sent out
section hands who found the break and re
The train was due at Juarez at 7:25 a. m.
and the first news of the robbery was. a
telegram from the agent at Samalayuca
to Superintendent Comfort received at
7:43 a. m. and an engine was at once sent
back after the engine and train that had
held up and tho train was biought iu at
3:30 p. m.
The only blunder of the robbers was in
failing to get the key to the safe, in which
was a considerable amount of money a d
valuables. The messenger's action in get
ting away with the key is generally coin
mended. The amount of gold and silve:
coin and bullion brought up by the Welis
Fargo messengers is very large some
times amounting to over $100,(X)0 at one
time. For.unatoly this happened to be a
THE PARNELL INQUIRY.
Examination of Captain OVsliea Sensa
London, Nov. 1. Judge Hannen's court
yesterday was crowded, the Pumellites
being present in full force, Pai neil. Har
rington, Davitt, Arthur O'Connor, T. 3L
Healey and Biggar keeping close watch
over the proceedings. O'Slioa proved s
good witness, giving his evidence in a
calm, matter-of-fact way. He wns clear
on the smallest detail, and equally cool
andprecise during cross-examination. His
narrative of tho Kilmainham negotiations,
though largely a matter of history, was
listened to with rapt attention. Expecta
tion was at its height on the production of
the alleged forged letters. Taking up a let
ter, he scanned it with careful deliberation
for a few moments and then said in a dis
tinct tone, without over emphasis, ''It is
Mr. Parnell's signature." Several other
letters were scrutinized in tho same way
and evoked tho same unqualified statement.
"It is Mr. Parnell's signature." The most
striking point elicited by the cross-examination
was his charging Sir William
Harcourt with coming as an emissary
from Mr. Gladstone to warn him to prc
Ferve tho utmost reticence in regard to the
"Hilmainhnm treaty." Although the wit
ness did not allege that Sir William Har
court advised tho destruction of the mem
oranda, he explicitly stated that it was on
hearing of Mr. Gladstone's wish that he
destroyed the documents.
Sir Charles Russell's cross-examination
was expected to elicit tho reason for the
rupture between O'Shea and Parnell. but
both sides chose to leavo this unrevealed.
The witness stated that up to June, 1!SG,
he believed in Parnell's honor and knew
that ho was opposed to outrages. Neither
Sir Charles Kussoll nor Sir F.icbnrd
Webster proceeded to inquire as to what
caused him to disbelieve in Parnell's
honor. Whatever was tho cause of the
rupture tho animus of the witness was ap
parent. The Parnellitos probably felt the
quiet malignity of the evidence more
keenly than the best informed.
A Norwegian Crew Shipwrecked Anions
ltarburitins In the Southern Senx.
Philadelphia, Nov. 1. A Norwegian
steamship arrive! here yesterday from
Jamaica having on board Captain Jacob
sen and one sailor belonging to the Nor
wegian lark Inga. which was wrecked ou
the Island of Cayman. September 17, when
on a voyage from Montevideo to Ship
Island, Miss. Captain Jacobson says that
soon after the vessel struck on the island
she was boarded by nearly 200 colored
wreckers, who made a bold and dar
ing attempt to take possession- ui
and rob the vessel. They made an
attempt to gain entrance into the
after-cabin, and were only prevented
from doing so at tho point of a pistol.
When they were driven from tho vessel's
deck the crew landed in their life boat; on
the island. They were the only civilized
people there and subsisted two vrceki on
cocoanuts and a little gin they had saved.
At the end of this time Captain Jacobson
got possession of a small sloop, in which
he and .his crew made sail for Jamaica.
They only had a small quantity of pro
visions, and expected to reach Jamaica in
two days, but instead of this they were a
week. Their sufferings from exposure ami
want of sufficient food were beyond de

NO VESSEL HANDY.
Washington, Oct 30. The. Navy De
partment has been requested by the Sec
retary of State to send a man-of-war tc
Hayti to look after American interests
there which appear to have been jeopard
ized by the seizure of the American
stoamer, Haytien Republic at St Marc
and other disturbing events at Port au
Prince. At present all the vessels of the
North Atlantic station are laid up in navy
yards for repairs, except the Boston.whicb
is now at some Central American port be
yond the reach of the telegraph. Efforts
will be made to communicate with her,and
it is expected that the vessel will be able
to reach Hayti in a few days.
To-night it was decided to send the
Kearsarga, now undergoing repairs at
Norfolk, and Commodore Harmony sent
instructions to hasten the work on that
vessel so that she could be put into com
mission in a few days. She will proceed
direct to Port au Prince.
TO RELIEVE WHALERS.
Steps Being Taken to Send Relief to Im
Washington, Oct 31. Acting Secretary
Thompson, yesterday received a long
telegram from San Francisco, signed by
Senator Hearst and others, informing him
of the perilons situation of the crews ol
about a dozen whalers supposed to have
been wrecked near Herald Island, in the
Arctic ocean, and asking that a revenue
steamer be sent at once to their assistance.
There are said to be nearly 500 men in the
party, and they are in no condition to
withstand the rigors of an Arctic winter.
The revenue steamer Bear is desired for the
purpose of sending provision and cloth
ing, without which, it is said, they will
perish of hunger and cold. Acting Secre
tary Thompson visited the White House
during the day and laid the matter before
the President saying that there was nc
vessel now in the revenue service fit for a
winter cruise to tho Arctic The steamer
Bear, now at San Francisco, which wa3
suggested for the expedition would re
quire extensive repairs, and Mr. Thomp
son added that there is no appropriation
which can be utilized for this expense.
The President said that the case was a
serious one and required prompt act
ion. He thereupon sent for Commo
dore Harmony, Acting Secretary of the
Navy, and instructed him to take immedi
ate steps for tbe relief of the whalers.
Commodore Harmony promised to do so,
and said ho would endeavor to communi
cate with Commodore Emery, command
ing the United States ship Thetis, now
cruising in the Arctic and which is ex
pected to arrive at San Francisco in a
short time. The present plan is to fit this
vessel out for a relief expedition as soon
as she arrives at San Francisco, and to
expedite her arrival there with that end

Department of TnE Interior, Washing

your communication of October 10 and care
fully noted its contents It was deemed ad
visable, if not necessary, to give the notice
contained in my oommuni ation of Septem
ber 28, in view of the apparent probability
that your Nation would soon renew tho pre
viously existing lease or make a new lease ol
the lands in the Cherokee outlet. I think that
he notice is sufficient to protect the rights ot
the United States, whatever thoy are. Ou the
other hand, I am so far from desiring to trench
upon the rights of the Cherokee Nation that
I wish to see all their rights fully protected.
If occasion should arise, and none has yet
arisen, for me to attempt to define a line
of demarkation between the rights of the
United States and the Cherokee Nation, I
shall then undertake it with careful considera
tion st the rights of the Cnerokees as well asol
the Government Meantime no further action ap
pears necessary on the part of the department
and I write this more particularly to assure
you and your people that there is no disposition
to diminish or abridge either your rights or the
full cxercie and enjoyment of them or depre
ciate the worth or value of them in any way
whatever. Very respectfully,

FIGHT FOR A TRUCK.
Republicans Capture n Platform From
Democrats In a Political Kow at Now
New York, Oct 30. A row occurred in
the Eighth Assembly district last night be
tween the Tammany organization and the
John J. O'Brien Legion of Republicans,
the latter capturing a truck from which
the Democrats bad been making speeches
to a crowd at Eldridge and Canal streets.
The meeting was about to close when the
O'Brien Legion, who had been parading,
raided the truck. The leaders were well
acquainted with each other and regarded
the affair more as a joke than seriously,
but some of the followers on both sides got
excited and there was quite a fracas, in
the course of which two pistol shots were
heard. Whether the firing was done in a
Pickwickian sense or in earnest is con
jecturaL At any rate, the police thought
it justified them in taking a serious view
of the situation, and the street was soon

retary Bayard's I.etUr.
Washington, Oct 3L By direction of
thn President, the Secretary ofState yes
terday informed Lord Sackville that for
causes heretofore made known to her Ma
jesty's Government his continuance in his
present official position in the United States
was no longer acceptable to this Govern
ment, and would consequently be detri
mental to the relations between the two
countries. Tho grounds of this action on
the part of the United States are stated in
the following report of the Secretary of
State to the President:
Department or State, Washington, Oct
20, 1K& To the President: The undersigned
has the honor to submit for your consideration
the following statement with a view to receive
your direction thereon:
On September 4 last a letter purporting to
be written by one Charles R. Marchison. dated
at Pomona, CaL. was sent from that place to
the British Minister at this capital, in which
the writer solicited an expression of his views
In regard to certain unsettled diplomatic Ques
tions between the United States and Great
Britain, stating at the same time that such
an expression was sought by him for the
purpose of determining his vote at the ap
proaching Presidential election. He stated
that he was a naturalized citizen of the
United States, of English birth, but that ho
still considered England the mother country
and thl f jet led him to seek advice from tho
British representative in this country. He fur
ther sta'ed that th2 information he souht was
not for himself alone, but to enable him to give
certain assurance to many other persons in the
same situation as himself, for tho purpose of
Infl'?ncing and determining their political ac
tion as citizens of tho United States of English
birth, but who still regarded tbolr original obli
gations or allegiance as paramount The letter
also contained gross reflections upon the con
duct of this Government in respect to ques
tions now in controversy and unsettled between
the United States and Great Britain, and both
directly and indirectly imputed insincerity in
To this letter tho British Minister at once re
plied from Beverley Mass.. under date of Sep
tember 1 last In this reply he stated that
"any political party which openly favors the
mother country at the present moment would
lose popularity and that the party In power
is fully aware of that fact:" and that in re
tpect to the "questions with Canada which
have been unfortunately reopened slncu the
rejection of the Fisheries treaty by the Repub
lican majority iu the Senate and by the Pres
ident's message to which you allude, allow
ances must therefore bo made for the polit
ical situation as regards the Presidential elec
tion." The Minister thus gave his assent and
sanction to the aspersions and imputations
above referred to. Thus under his correspond
ent's assurance of secrecy, in which the Minis
ter concurred by marking his answer "private."
he undertol: to advfc-e a citizen of the United
States how to exercise the franchise of suffrage
iu an election close at hand for the Presidency
and Vice-Prcsideney of the United States, and
through him, as the letter suggested, to influ
ence the votes of many others.
Upon this correspondence being made public,
the Minister received the representatives of
of the public press and in frequent interviews
with them, intended for publication, added to
the impugnments which he had already made
of the good faith of this Government in its
public action and international dealings. Al
though ample time and opportunity have been
afforded him for the disavowal, modification or
correction of his statements, to some of which
his intention was called personally by the un
dersigned, yet no such disavowal or modifica
tion has been made by him through the chan
nels in which his statements first found pub
licity. The question is thus presented whether it is
compatible with the dignity, security and inde
pendent sovereignty of the United States to
permit the representative of a foreign govern
ment in this country not only to receive and
answer without disapproval and confirm by his
repetition aspersions upon its political action,
but also to interfere in its domestic affairs by
advising persons formerly his countrymen as
to their political course as citizens of the
United States. As between this coun
try and Great Britain there can be no
controversy as to complete severance of tho
ties of original allegiance by naturalization.
Disputes on this point were finally put at rest
by the treaty of naturalization cone uded by
the two countries May 13, 1SV0- Therefore it
will not be contended, nor was such contention
ever admitted by us. that citizens of the United
States of British origin are subject to any claim
of the country of their original allegiance.
The undersigned also had tho honor to call
the attention to the provisions of section 5,531
of the revised statutes of the United States by
which severe penalties are visited upon citizens
of the Unitfd States who.without the authority
or the permission ot this Government "com
mences or carries on any verbal or written cor
respondence or Intercourse with any foreign
Government, or any officer or agent thereof,
either with an intent to influcnco tho action of
such Government or its agents in relation
to and disputes or contro ersies with tho
United States or with an Intent to de
feat the measures of the Government
ot the United States." These penal
ties are made equally applicable to every citi
zen of the United States not duly authorized
who "counsels, advises or assists in any such
correspondence," with similar unlawful intent
The undersigned Tespectfully advles that tho
attention of the Attorney-General of the United
States bo directed to these enactments in order
that an investigation may bo made with a view
to ascertain whether they have not been vio
lated in the present case by the correspondent
of the British Minister.
By your direction the attention of the British
Government has, in a spirit of comity, been
called to the conduct of their Minister, as
above described, but without result It there
fore becomes necessary for this Government
to consider whether a3 the guardian of its
own self-respect and the integrity of its in
stitutions it will permit further intercourse to
be held through the present British Minister at
this capital. It Is to be observed that pre
cedents are not wanting as to the question
under consideration. It is a settled rule, es
sential to the maintenance of international in
tercourse that a diplomatic representative must
be persona grata to tho Government to which ho
is accredited. If by his conduct he renders
himself jurtotut non grata an announcement
of the fact may be made to his Government. In
the present case all the requirements of comity
have been fulfilled, the facts having been duly
communicated to her Majesty's Govcmmeut
with an expression of the opinion of this Gov
ernment in regard thereto. Respectfully sub
mitted, T. F. BATARD

Washington, Oct 30. Dr. Mary Walker
has issued an appeal addressed to "the
great sisterhood of Maryland," urging all
women to register and to vote. She says
that if women ore prevented from the ex

money will be forthcoming to prosecute
such persons as may attempt to interfere,
and if necessary the suits will bo taken to
the Supreme Court of the United States

Early maturity is an important factor in
the qualifications of bsef cattle. A good

It is well known that corn readily ab

It was many years ago discovered that
lime was a preventive of the disease

applied than to cabbage. Even late in tho

be used on cabbage with profitable results.
Some farmers aro adopting the practice
of buying their own chemicals and doing

the materials in the right proportion, so
as to get just what is needed in a concen

engaged in tho business, with all the ap

Down here in a beautiful town south,
of us an infidel and about as good a
one as you will find came to me and
said: "Ms. Jones, I am an infidel. I
don't believe the Bible; but you have
got something that I have not got, and
I wish I had it. I don't know what it
is." I said: "I will prescribe for you
and cure you if you will take my med
icine." He said: "I will do it." I
said: "To-night when I get through
the preaching come up to the altar
and say, 'God be merciful to me a sin
ner.'" He says: "But I," I say:
"Shut your mouth; your trouble has
been your mouth and if I could keep
that shut twenty-four hours I will get
you on the road to God." Sure enough,
that night he came and knelt at the
altar and after the service I said to
him: "When you go home read a
chapter from the IJible and have fam
ily prayers." "But I," says he.
Shut your mouth," said I; "your mouth
has gotten you nearly to hell, and if I
can keep it shut forty-eight hours I
will cure you." He got his Bible that
night and prayed. The next morning
he came back. I told him when the
door of the church opened for him to
go up and join. "I -I," he began.
I said: "Shut your mouth, but do as
I tell you." That afternoon he walked
up to the front and joined the church.
I put a padlock on each corner of his
mouth and one in the middle, and kept
his mouth shut forty-eight hours. He

Bible, and hero is my hand to lead a

I have received many letters in refer
ence to my testimonial, lately published,
commending Allcock's Porous Plasters.
I cannot spare tho timo to answer them
in writing, therefore would again say,
through the press, that I have found All
cock's Porous Plasters invaluable as
chest protectors and shields against coughs
and colds. Furthermore, I have found All
cock's Plasters unequaled for pains in

Underrating a Very Serious Matter.
People are apt to underrate the im
portance of regulating the kidneys when
inactive. Hence, and from the perverse
disregard of medical aid, tho prevalence of
dangerous renal disease. Give a healthful
impulse to these organs when needful with
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, and avoid im
pending danger. Tho bitters also insures
digestion and regularity of the bowels, and
prevents malarial complaints.
Telephones are a great convenience,
and yet people are all the timo talking
against them. Tonlters Statesman.
Foul poisons that accumulate in the blood
and rot the machinery of the system, are
eradicated and expelled by using Prickly
Ash Bitters, a medicine that will not irri
tate the stomach or bowels. It acts in a
gentle manner on these delicate organs,
and restores health in every case.

But do not use the dangerous Alkali and
Mercurial preparations which destroy your
nervous system and ruin the digestive pow
er of the stomach. The Vegetable King
dom gives us the best and safest remedial
agencies. Dr. Sherman devoted the grea'er
part of his life to the discovery of this relia
ble and safe remedy, and all its ingredients
are vegetable. He gave it the name of
Prickly Ash Bitters !
a name every one can remember, and to the
present day nothing has been discovered that
Is so beneficial for the Blood, for the Liver,
for the Kidneys and for the Stomach. This
remedy is now so well and favorably known
by all who have used it that argument as
to its merits is useless, and if others who
require a corrective to the system would
but give it a trial the health of this coun
try would be vastly improved. Remember
