A Diabolical Deed.
Clevt;la:u) O., April 20 A special
from Kent, Ohio, tells of a diabolic tl at

that place with an infernal machine. A
small Jbox was left in the kallwav of his
residence. It was peculiarly constructed
and being suspicious he threw the box into
the yard when an explosion occored which
shattered the windows of an adjoining
house. There is no known cause of the

L.Ufeixo, April 20. The Republican
caucus met last night but adjourned be
cause the high license liquor bill was not
ready for consideration. Many prominent
Republicans have purposely stayed away
from both caucuses and refused "to attend
or be governed by any action that may be
taken'thereon. A great muiy members
are opposed to high license. The truth is,
the Republican majority Is so lirge that
binding caucus action on anv subject of
legislation is impossible. Whea the liquor
question gscs before the legislature the
discussion will be full and tree, but what
laws will result cannot now be foretold
It is said that all the liquor laws will be
put together in one bill and that the prts

Blaine 1b Chicago.
Chicago, April 20. Hon. James G.
Blaine crrived in this city this morniag
over the Wabash railroad. He was met at
the depot by his sons, Walker, and Em
mons, no crowd having aembled at the
station. Accompanying Mr. Blaine were
his wife, his daughter, Miss Harriet
Ulaine, and Miss Abagail Dodge. The
party were at once driven to the Grand
Pacific hotel, where they breakfasted. Mr.
Walker Blaine said this morning that hi3
father had completely recovered from his
late illness, aud was feeling better than for
some time past. Just what his plans were
he could not say, but would be able t tell
more later in the day.
Mr. Blaine was looking extremely well
and seemed to have grown stouter than
whea last in Chicago. During the morn
ing Congressmen Dunham and Jones of
the Illinois state central committee, sent up
their cards and desired to see Mr. Blaine.
Walker Blaine met them in the rotunda of
the hotel and explaiied his father's need of
rest and the callers withdrew. Later in
the day Mr. Blaine received a number of
personal friends but positively declined to
see reporters or to be. interviewed on any
any subject, political or otherwise.
Emmons Blaine stated that his father
would probably remain in Chicago sevcrd
days aud perhaps a week. He needed rest
at present after hie long journey, but to
morrow would quite likely receive all who
called upon him. It was announced to the
sons of Mr. Blaine that the bankers of this
city proposed to give a banquet during
their father's stay in Chicago, and would
request from him some expression of his
views upon the financial and business pros
pects of the country. It was not learned
whether Mr. Blaine would accept th8 invi
tation or not, but c committee from the
club will wait upon him tomorrow for the
purpose of extending a formal invitation
and of learning his wishes in the matter.
A Very Fine Scheme, That.
Chicag6, April 20. A Lincoln, Ne
braska, special says: There is a well de
fined rumor to tho effect that the Union
Pacific stockholders are quietly preparing
to surrender the old Union Pacific main
line for the Government debt and abandoned
their Omaha and Council Bluff termini,
making tho several branches of the Union
Pacific which are owned by them, inde
pendent of the government line, the new
system of line with Lincoln as tho eastern
terminus. The main feature involved in
this plan consists first of a through line
from Lincoln to Denver, with connection
at Lincoln with tne old Iowa pool lines;
and second, linking together all Union Pa
cific branches with this Lincoln and Den
ver line, making, with the Oregon Short
Line and Denver & Rio Grande, a new
system to be called the Lincoln, Denver
& Pacific. This will be conducted under
cever of the old St. Joseph and Grand Isl
and road, which is definitely known to be
owned by the old Union Pacific regime,
who have never parted with control of the
Union Pacific brwch lines. It is claimed
that by the time congress is ready to act
upon Union Pacific matters there lines will
be completed, and tho Uaioa Pacific,
shorn of its branches, will be ready to be
turned over to the government as a whito
After The Bald Knobbera.
St. Louis, April Mo., 20. A special
from Ozark, Missouri, to the Post dispatch
siys: The circuit court resumed its session
this morning and after some preliminary
proceedings adjourned. The grand jury
continued its iuvctigation and new wit
nesses were called, among them Win.
Johnson, one of the Bald Knobbera who
made confession when he wa? arrested.
It is expected that a thorough unravelling
vi me uuiu haiu nBouuor mystery win oe
effected before the grand jury closes its
work, and many members of theorder, who
are otherwise good citizens, aud who had
no hand ia tho E'lens Green killing, are
quite apprehensive, if they do not already
believe, that every min in the organization
will be indicted. Judge Hubbarti's charge
to the grand jury yesterday was very strong
against the Bald Knobbers and fully ap
proved by the citizens generally.
A Clever Lottery Swindle.
Chicago, April 20. A local paper says
One of the most impudent and barefaced
lottery schemes ever devised is now being
operated throughout the United States.
Theswindle is mainly designed for victim
izing the German speaking contingent in
large cities and has already achieved toler
able success. A concern styling itself
"Messrs. Thiele & Co., bankers, Hamburg,
Germany," through an agent in Baltimore,
Md., flooded the country with letters ad
dressed to German residents in all large
cities. These letters contain a circular
giving a glowing description of the "two
hundred and ninety-second German Gov
ernment Lottery, City of Hamburg." They
announce the amount may be remitted by
means of the American company's money
order, payable at Hamburg, Germany.
Baron Von Mordenflycht, tho German
counsel, said: "This is one of the most pal
pable swindles ever brought to iny knowl
edge. There is no such lottery as the "Ger
man Government Lottery." The govern
ment of the Germau empire ha3 no con
nection or control of any lottery or pre
mi'im enterprise whatever. This is not
only a fraud, but an insult to the govern
ment I represent.
A Battle Between Deputies.
PorL.vn Bluff, Mo.. April 20. Satur
day night Constable Charles Birfield, of
Butler county, went to Neelyville with a
passe of half dozen deputies to arrest two
outlaws and quietly took possession to
await their coming. On the fame nicht
the Ripley county sheriff came to Neely
ville on the same mission. Neither party
knew of the other's presence. The Butler
county men had hardly taken possession
when they heard the Ripley county depu
ties approaching and supposed they were
the outlaws, wfao had increased their num
bers in anticipation. The Butler deputies
opened a fusilade upoa them with Yin
chester nfles. The fire was returned and
for several hours the deputies waged a
desultory warfare. At daylight the be
seiged recognirtd the beseiging party and
a parley was effected which ended the bat
tle. Two men were wounded though not
faUUy. The outlaws have left the coun

Redwood Manufacturing Association of
San Francisco, telegraphed the interstate
commerce commission: Our two corpora
tions. employine: eteht to ten thousand
men and about thirty million dollars capi
tal, have addressed you by mail stating
that our eastern business has been entirely
destroyed by the operation of the law, and
asking your interpretation in our behalf.
Meanwhile will you allow roaas over
which we have been operating to give old
rates and so revive our business with the
A. Lusk & Co. telegraph for similar re
lief for fruit interests,
The representatives of the various busi
ness Interests entering in Boston were be
fore the interstate commerce commission
this morning. Judge Soul, attorney of
the Boston & Albany Railroad Co., said
theTOute taken by shipments to Boston was
not the same as that to New York, but was
between sixty and one hundred and fifteen
miles longer. Ot course tne rates to Hew
York were fixed by the shortest line.
There had grown up a large export trade
in Boston, made possituo ry an arrange
ment with the roads which brought traffic
at the same ratos charged by the New
York roads to that city. This trade ren
dered it possible U maintain a line of
steamers to England, which line would not
be maintained without this tramc. The
local rate from the west to Boston was slo
five eents greater on grain and cereals and
like classes of produce than that on the
same merchandise extended for export. It
the local rates were changed on the export
traffic it would kill it.
Mr. Win. H. Lincoln, agent of a line of
trans Atlantic steamers, then addressed the
commission under oath. Thecommisbion,
he said, could hardly appreciate the grav
ity of the question presented. The whole
business of Boston was involved in this
matter, both local and export. This ques
tion was of Biich importance that lie had
cabled his people in Liverpool the day be
fore leaving Boston to delay the sailing of
a steamship which was about to sail until
it should be settled, and he knew that
other lines had done the 6amc. Despite
the equality of railroad rates in the past
such were the other advantages of New
York that one half of his company's steam
ers during the year had been diverted to
Nw York. The through rate from Chi
cago to Liverpool today is les than the lo
cal rate from Chicago to Boston.
Charles H. North, packer, said that the
export packing trade of Boston, amount
ing to fifteen millions annually, could not
go under the present arrangement.,
Edward Kemble, addressing tne com
mission, asked that the railroads should
not be permitted to slugle out a certain
class of citizens of Boston as beneficiaries
of the desired action of the commission. If
the roads could haul freight from Chicago
to Boston for export for 25 cents, why
could they not do it for consumption?
The commissioners gave no intimation as
to what their action would be.
After recess the commission gave a hear
ing to the representatives f certain north
western railroad interests. J. A. Hanley,
general superintendent of the Minnesota
a Northwestern railroad, presented a peti
tion for an order to allow that line, in con
nection with the Wabash & Central Iowa
Company,, to regulate its tariffs upon
through busbies between St. Louis and
St. Paul and Minneapolis to meet the wa
ter competition upon the Mississippi; alo
to allow the company to regulate itd tariffs
upon through traffic to meet competition
upon the lakes.

DECLINES TO STATE.
The secretary of stato declines to either
confirm or deny the statement cabled from
London to the effect that Lord Salisbury
bent a dispatch to this government on the
subject of the fisheries, offering to revert
to the old condition of affttirs without pe
cuniary indemnity. Secretary Bayard also
declines to express any opinion with regird
to the subject matter of the dispatch as
The subject matter of the dispatch is not
exactly news iu diplomatic circles, the
same proposition having emanated from
the Canadian government some time ago.
The well informed are inclined to be of the
opinion that the offer referred to in the ca
blegram has been thus indirectly made as a
feeler to ascertain in advance of an actual
tender how such a proposition would be
received by the American people. As the
representatives of the Uuited States on the
commission that negotiated tho treaty of
Washington, and the Halifax commission
which fixed the award, England, for the
use of the Canadian inshore fisheries, ex
pressly denied that tho privilege
accorded to the United States vessels of
fishing in Canadian waters was mee valu
able than the coecendon made to Canadian
fishermen of a like privilege in waters
of the United States, tho free eutry of their
fish. It is safe to assume that the depart
ment of state never entertained the Idea of
renewing the treaty of Washington with
the understanding that a cash indemnity
was again to be paid to Great Britiun for
the right to enjoy the inshore fisheries of
Secretary Bayard today said that he wiui
glad to noto the increased interest mani
fested In the subject. He felt that the
people of tho country outside of Massa
chusetts, had never realized iVt Importance
or appreciated the gravity of the
alternative left to the administration,
a cie-curation oi non-intercourse u u
failed to affect a peaceab o ndjintment of
the differences between the United Sutes
and Great Britain respecting the construe
tion of the treaty rights of our fishermen.
It 13 doubtful, he mid, if the interest of
San Francisco is maintained her present
forco of coal supply from British Coluui
bin, aside from the importance of Chica
go's great business connection with Canada
and 01 tne vast trade that ebb3 and Hows
across the 3,000 miles of our northern
boundary, do not exceed the Interest of
Massachusetts in the results of thu applica
tion of such an alternative rs commercial
non iutercourbc. The negotiations with
Great Britain oa this subject are progress
ing and tho secretnry hopes that thoy will
result In a harmonious and satisfsctory un
derstanding between that country ana the

Loxdox, April 30. It b officially stated
that Lord Salisbury, in a dispatch sent to
Washington on Mirch 2 1, Mild that the
British government, understanding the
action of the United States in denouncing
the fishery artiolc of the treaty of Wash
ton to boiu great, degree tho result of dis
appointment at being called upon to pay
eleven hundred thousaud pounds under the
Halifax fisheries award, offers to revert to
the old condition of affairs without pecuni

commend itself to the American govern
ment as being based upon that spirit of
f;ood will and generosity which snoul.4 an
mate two great and kindred nations which
a common origin, language and Institutions
coast itute as bonds of amity and concord.
Several Gladstone Liberals dolre to
have parliament issue uinmoas to the edi
tor of the Times calling him before tho
bouse of commons to answer for a breach
of privilege in accusing Mr. Paraell and
other members of the house of complicity
in crime, or that Mr. Gladstone propose
the appointment of a committee to examine
The Parnellites have been consulted and
their leader oppose both propositions. If
neither Parnellites nor Gladstone take the
Initiative in movhtg fur an Investigation it
Is probable that an Independent motion will
be made which both the government aad
Liberal Uunton members will support.
The London Globe this evening says that
Mr. Biggar will sue the TIbbc for libel
and make that paper's article on "Parnell
km and crime," the scries of which the
Parnell letter was the culmination, part of
the basis of action.
Gladstone writes: "I attach very high
value and importance to manifestations row
incessant, of American as well as colonial
sympathy with Irish people iu tho crisis
created by the causeless, iiwulling, inshlu
ous bill at present before parliameut. Apnrt
from parliament and more or less formal
acknowledgements, 1 am not of the opin

me to take upon 1113'Kclf and uddrutH any
general communication to America on
this subject, which, however, I uoticcd and
