San Francisco, Juno 7.—Tho wine
merchants of this city have decided lo
require, producers to send thtir wines
attested by the new wine stamp aud

not provided for by the act, and it is
thought it may he resisted by tho pro
ducers. A number of leading vineyardwts

selling it, in order to secure themselves
from adulteration after it leaves their

the clarifying materials sold in tho mar

appeal from Michael Divitt has been
cabled to John Fitzgerald, President of
the Irish National League in America:
Patrick Ford and John Boyle O'Jleitly,
BOABIFV, County of Clare, Juue 7. \S7.
The work of exterminating our race is |
daily going on. The people are contest
lag every inch of ground with
spirit. Their resistance is admirable
but tho odds are terribly against then..
The Tory policy of eviction and enforced
emigration wo resist as one mm.
AN APPEAL TO AMERIIA.
The woikiugmen in America, in their
own interest, should protest against this
pauper labor being forced upon their
market. I would suggest that a deputa
tion of the friends of our cause and the
Knights of Labor wait upon the Presi
dent of the Uuited States and in
vito his attention to England's
policy in driving thousands of our
people every week from Ireland to the
United States. Humanity and enlight
ened self-interest unite iv urging Ameri
cans to action iv this matter.
We want means to succor the evicted
and make some small recompense to the
imprisoned. We sacrifice their liberty
iv resistance to injustice. Bodyke is
lighting the battle ot Ireland.

A l»rtcst at Anaheim Commits
Special Dispatch to the ■aaALO,
Anahkim, June 7.—When the house
keeper of the Rev. V. Foran went to
his room this morning at X o'olock, to
prepare his breakfast, she found the
priest in bed fully dressed in his best
clothes and with blood streaming
from bis mouth. She'gave (he alarm,
aud Dr. Ballard, who was among the
first to respond, found that tbe pritst
had been shot twice, once in the center
of the forehead and once uuder tbe chin,
both balls lodging in his brain. He was
then unconscious and has so remained
up to the present tune, but his death is
momentarily expected. The pistol with
which he shot himself was lying ou the
bed by bis side. It is undoubtedly a
case of suicide, and there is every reason
to believe that he has been iusaue for a
week past. Some sensational testimony
Will probably be uiven at the inquest.
Foran was deposed from the priesthood
some time ago for reasons which have
not been made public.
The Hawaiian Kintc Accused ol
San* Francisco, June 7. —Advices
from Honolulu show that the new war
ship at Kamailoa, which constitutes the
Hawaiian navy, has sailed for Samoa.
The ship cost the Government $100,000.

fighting, and a boatswain deserted with
his uniform and advance, salary. Tho

•The Honolulu QatetU renews its at

received twenty thousand dollars iv a

for ten thousand dollars was handed to
him personally. Subsequently fifteen
thousand more was demanded and paid
to the King by a Chinaman named Ah
Ki. The King, it is Claimed, in return
promised to grant Ah Xi a license for
selling opium but gave it to another

San Franiisio, June 7. —Referring
to a telegraphic statement tbat a French
syndicate bad puichastd a large tract of
land on (he San Pedro river, in Sonora,
Mexico, for the purpose of establishing
a colony of several thousand families,
M. A. Pesoli, Chuncellor ot Ihe Frtnch
Consulate, expressed tlie i-|4nion that
there was no truth in it, or it there wee,
its importance bad hem greatly over
estimated. Frenchmen, as a rule, do
not venture upon new soil in masses, but
rather alone when comparatively un
known countries are to be colonized.
The French Government would natur
ally be interested in the departure at
one time of several thousands of sub
jects, and probably raise some objections
if no detluite knowledga of the new
country were at hand. Mexican Consul
Covey had no information respecting
the proposed colony.

London, June 7.— Sinen the revela
tions made by the Pali Mall Gazette and
the passage of the Criminal Law Amend
ments Bill the public have believed that
trufhc in children is impossible. A case
that has just occurred in the Lambeth
! Police Court therefore has caused a uni
versal sensation of horror. Edward
Rockuell and three women were nr
rested, charged with ktepiug a house of
ill-repute, and having procured for their
pa'rons scores of git's from ten to four
teen years of age. The prisoners and
victims are of liuinble rank. The evi
dence, so far, shows that the seducers
of girls belong to the same class. The
government will prosecute the prison
ers, all of whom have been remanded.

A sWKKI'INI. ANALYSIS.
In an editorial on the subject tbe Timer
says: Tots whole conspiracy, whetha r
carried on by the mealy-mouthed gentle
men, who sit at London dinner tables,
or by their friends who organize arson
and murdir, is one and indi
visible. It is ail paid for out
out of the same purse, worked by
the same men, directed to the same end,
inspired by the one universal hatred of
England; and it is their fixed determin
ation to bring about if possible, a com
plete separation between England and
Ireland. Wnether money goes to support
Gladstone in Parliament or I* equip
desperadoes for the committal of outrages
in English towns is a mere matter of tac
tics. Whenever we liod constitutional
agitators wiih masks, a- in the case of
Davitt at Boduk, we find their language,
sentimeut and aims are identical with
those of the ruffians by wiin.e support
ihey live and whom they, iv Parliament,
pretend to be ignorant of.
