IRELAND FOR. THE IRISH.
the National League Issues an Address
to Friends of Freedom.
HELP THE STRUGGLING GAEL.
A National Ccnvetticn Will Be Held in
Philadelphia at a Date Not
Special to the Globe.
Cincinnati, Feb. 7.- The following
address was issued to-day by the execu
tive committee of the National League
of America, now in session here:
To the Friends of Ireland : The centnriea
struggle of our kindred in Ireland for the
inalienable right of self-government main
tained by them at such tremendous sacri
fices, and against such mighty odds, is just
now being subjected in the persons of its de
voted leaders to another ordeal of excep
tional siVL'i'itv. The Tory government of
England has thrown aside even the forms of
decency, under which it has heretofore, at
times, veiled its malignity, and now stands
for the remorseless executioner of naked,
unblushing despotism. We view with just
pride the unity and perseverance ex
hibited by the Irish people in this latest
struggle against their titled oppressors.
Freedom of action and expression have been
denied them by these ory tyrants, under
British forms of law, but bril es, menaces
nnd judicial murder have failed to dampen
their spirits or materially check their on
ward march. We assure them that their
countrymen iv America stand ready to sup
port them in any steps which their wisdom ,
and prudence may dictate in their struggle
to recover th"ir liberties. We regard with
indifference. If not contempt, ihe daily
PERJURIES in. the COMMISSION
court and declare in advance that a tribunal
so constituted and packed cannot render any
judgment which will in tne least deter us
from supporting our brethren, nor. are we
sure, lose Ireland the friendship of the
masses in all civilized communities who have
watched Ireland's struggle for freedom. The
Times may rail, suborn perjury and continue
its heinous work of endeavoring to destroy
the national cause by the tarnishing of our
leader's reputation, but in vain. England's
tilled clashes have no longer the ear of the
world exclusively baconings and blud.Aon
ings, jails and prison garbs have been shown
to have no terrors for the people and their
leaders. They added the murderof Mandeville
to the innumerable list of martyred Irish he
roes, and Balfour, -the latest representative of
England's official tyranny in Ireland, tried to
keep his expressed word that he won hi kill
William O Brien and John Dillon by long
terms of imprisonment. Still there lias been
no faltering, and the splendid spirit of the
people shows that they are worthy of our
best efforts, and should receive our prompt,
effective and continued assistance until it
has been demonstrated that peaceful a na
tion has failed to produce in England, a
sense of justice and a desire to repair her
INJURIES INFLICTED UPON IRELAND.
In proposing the remedies for these wrongs,
•which in the language of one of Ireland's
tried and truest sous, "Cry to heaven for
vengeance," we have taken no hasty action,
but after days of deliberation we have for
the present decided upon the following plan
and now turn to you, lovers of Ireland's
cause in An.ei"'ca, the cause of justice and
humanity, to co-operate with us in ihe work.
"We have decided to call a national conven
tion in Philadelphia, the date of which you
will soon learn. To this ctnveution every
organization, however closely or remotely
connected with the Irish national cause in
the past, will be invited to send rep
resentatives. This the last national conven
tion of the "ex led Gael" should be
the greatest in numbers, the most emphatic
and effective in its proposed line of action
and should be the fitting close to hi last ten
years of heroic sacrifices, which lovers of
liberty and justice in America have so
grandly made. That the proper act may ac
company the words of hope and encourage
ment which Ireland needs in this, her trying
hour, we hereby authorize the treasurer of
the Irish National League of America, Key.
Charles O'Reillv. D. D., to send immediately
to Mr. ParneU, the sum of §20,00.

Miners and Operators Fail to
Agree Upon a hcale.
Special to the Globe.
Indianapolis, lnd., Feb. The
report last night that the miners and
operators in convention here had agreed
upon a scale seems to have been erron
eous. The convention adjourned this
afternoon until the second Tuesday in
March, to meet at Columbus, O. The
meeting resulted in no satisfactory con
clusion, the scale committtee failing to
agree. The Indiana miners entered a
strong protest against the feeling shown
by the - Indiana operators, who
were pretending to be working fairly,
while they were seeking legislation
detrimental to the miners' interests.
Trior to separating, the Ohio and Penn
sylvania miners and operators met and
passed resolutions condemning the dis
crimination of the Northwestern railway
in favor of certain Illinois operators
and the decision of Judge Cooley, sus
taining this dircrimination and recom
mending that all the operators in this
district proceed against the Illinois coal
fields as a common enemy.

Indianapolis, Feb. 7.— The conven
tion of miners and operators adjourned
this afternoon to meet in Columbus, 0.,
the second Tuesday in March. The
session to-day was devoted mainly to
discussing certain mining legislation
now pending before the Indiana legis
lature. As there is a misap
prehension in some quarters con
cerning the scale adopted last
night, it is here repeated: Hock

Reynoldsville, 05; Indiana block, 80;
Indiana bituminous, 65. After the ad
journment the Ohio and Pennsylvania
miners and operators met and passed
resolutions condemning the discrimina

favor of certain Illinois operators, and
the decision of Judge Cooley sustaining
this discrimination, and recommending
that all the operators in this district

Chicago's English-Speaking Sec
tion Repudiates Garside Now in
Chicago, Feb. The English
speaking socialists, of Chicago, at a
meeting to-night adopted resolutions
repudiating Prof. J. C. Garside, the gen
eral organizer and official lecturer of the
National Socialistic Labor party.
The discharge of Garside by the Na
tional executive committee is called for
on the ground that he is an anarchist,
advocating violence and bloodshed.
Action was taken after a long wrangle
in the meeting between the anarchist
and socialists, in which one faction was
charged with trying to run the Socialist
Labor party here in the interest of the
Republicans, and the other side was
trying to cause a split for the benefit of
"•lie Democrats in the spring election.

notwithstanding Moore's rascality, the
year had been a very prosperous one
for the company, not only wiping out

IT WAS THE GLKNCOE.
The Steamer Sunk in Collision
With the Bark Largo Bay Car
ried Down Fifty-Two Souls.
London, Feb. 7.— has been ascer
tained beyond doubt that the steamer
which was sunk in collision with the
British bark Largo Bay, off Beachy
Head, Monday night was the Glencoe,
belonging to the Glen line of Glasgow.
The Glencoe was bound from Liverpool
for London. She carried '. a crew num
bering fifty-two men. all of whom were
presumably drowned. She had no pas
sengers. She was last reported as hav
ing passed Prawle Point Monday. The
Glencoe was a three masted iron, screw
steamer of 1,901 tons. She was built at
Glasgow in 1878, was owned by Mc-
Gregor, Cow & Co., and was rated 100
A 1 at the British Lloyds. It is now
learned that the crew of the Glencoe in
cluded twenty-three Chinamen. The
force of the collision was so great
that the foremast of the Largo
Bay was jerked out and . fell
across her deckhouse, crushing it.
A wild tempest was raging at the time
of the accident and . snow was falling so
thickly that it was impossible for the
lookout on either vessel to see the lights
of the other until the collision was in
evitable. The Glencoe forged ahead,
trying to cross the Largo Bay's bow,
but failed to do so and ran at full speed
into the bark, demolishing ten feet of
her bow. The Largo Bay would also
have sunk had she not been provided
with water tight sections. The sudden
ness of the shock dazed the crew of the
bark. They saw nothing further of the
steamer, but could make out her crew
struggling in the water, It was impos
sible, however, to render them any as
sistance, all of the Largo Bay's boats
being smashed. The wind blew with
such force that the sails of the bark
were torn to shreds and a boy was car
ried overboard. The bark weathered
the storm until rescued and towed into

He Should Also Be Thanked for
Vindicating the Laws of Hu
Paris, Feb. 7.— M. de Freycinct,
minister of war, rtferring to Col.
Senart's order of the day commenting
on the action of the German authorities
in refusing a passport to a French army
surgeon who wished to visit Strass
burg to see his dying mother,
has instructed the commander in
chief to report on the matter with a
view to the punishment of the offender.
Most of the papers here think that Col.
Senart ought to be formally censured,
but also that he should be thanked by
every Frenchman for his vindication of
the laws of humanity and his courage
in showing resentment. La France
says: "If Col. Senart is punished
the whole world will believe that
it wns by the order of Prince
Bismarck. The secretary of the Ger
man embassy exonerates Count yon
Munster of animus and says the pass
port was refused because the sergeant
failed to obtain an official permit from
the Strasburg police." Gen. Boulanger
has unexpectedly returned to this city.
He considers his presence here neces
sary in view of the coming business in
the chamber of deputies. He contem

Berlin, Feb. B.— The North German

to the uew-born Chauvinism in France.
A clear light is being thrown upon the
manner in which French papers view
the anti-German propaganda in the
army. The ; French press marches at
the head of the most reckless inciters of
war, and will no longer be able to hide
its real thoughts and longings under an
occasional pretense of a desire for

HAD TO PICK UP THE TYPE
A Printer's Devil Delays Four
Long Lines of Street Cars.
Two young and well dressed men,
while walking on Madison street this
morning, were discussing the activity
and business tact displayed by the cit
izens of Chicago, and one made the re-_
mark that If the sidewalk under their
feet should fly up and kill ten people
trade aud traffice would be resumed in
"Why, the patrol wagon comes and
carts the slain away, the morbid crowd
disperses, and everything goes on in
the even tenor of its way."
Just then a boy, pushing one of those
hand carts used by porters and errand
boys, attempted to cross the street
at the corner of Madison street
and Fifth avenue. The pavement
was washed by the ram until the gran
ite stones looked like cheap restanrant
crockery. Little pools of dirty water
and soft mud lay between the network
of track. The boy made a rush, but
cruel Fate stood on the corner clapping
her hands and telling the crowd to look
out for fun.
The wheels slipped into a rut and
over went the cart and boy. The boy
landed squarely in a bed of water. The
contents of the cart— two forms from a
neighboring printing office— were hope
The boy scraped off three pounds of
dirt from his clothes and started to pick
up the type. The form was made up
for a large "ad" and the type was of
large size. Th^se who have seen this
corner at 7:30 o'clock in the morning
know how many street cars, teams, and
pedestrians cross the place. Well, that
little boy, wringing wet, shivering, and
shedding pigeon-egg tears just waded
into that puddle with his sleeves rolled
up and leisurely began to pick up
the type. Soon a long procession of
streetcars had gatheied on the four
sides of this obstruction, and the blue
oaths and strong words of drivers, con
ductors, and others went bowling
into the catchbasins. The boy
heeded them not. When he picked
up the •.•■;• last display type, a
letter G. he turned to the big, burly
driver of a Blue Isand avenue car, who
had driven his horses just as close to
the boy as he could without injuring the
lad, and remarked: "Well, you can
drive on now. I ain't got any string ter
yer, hey I?"
The cars disentangled themselves, the
impatient passengere sighed with relief,
and the two young men said in concert:

Farmers do not need to run foot races
or practice with dumb bells for exercise
in haying and harvest. The main thing
is to economize muscular action. To
this end horse labor is substituted for
human labor, machinery supplements
manual efforts, and yet the farmer gets
tired. His labor is often wearisome.
This is too often aggravated by doing
things the wrong way, by unnecessary
expenditure of streugth,or by ineffective
A little thought will often save much
useless .expenditure of strength. We
can all smile at the farmer who twice a
day "boosted" his calf over a seven-rail
fence to let it suck the cow, and wonder
he had not "gumption" enough to put
in a gate and save his strength, but at
the same time perhaps we have pitched
hay for years upon a high wagon with a
rack some eighteen inches higher from
the ground than necessary. If so, mul
tiply this by the number of forkfuls to
the heap: multiply this product by
the number of heaps to a load; multiply
this by the loads hauled a year; multiply
this by the number of years you have
used high wagons, reduce it to miles,
and see what an immedse amount of
useless boosting has been done, what a
wealth of time and strength has been
squandered that might have been saved.
There are olher ways of wasting
strength which will come to mind with
What the Woods Are Worth.
It may be surprising to learn that in
18S0 the estimated value of our forest
sroducts was $800,000,000. This is nearly
double that of wheat, more than ten
times that of gold and silver and forty
times that of iron ore. The consump
tion and destruction of the forest so far
outruns its reproductive capacity that
at the present rate the forests will soon
disappear and this enormous product
will end. „P_fK__^&
Such facts serve to explain the care
of forests in other and older countries.
Every important state in Europe has its
forestry department, which yields a net
revenue. Instruction in forestry is
given in forest schools, and in Austria,
Italy and France there is considerable
forest planting. Thirty years ago the
redwood belt of California contained by
'•far the most valuable body of soft tim
ber in the world. But it is doomed by
the manner in which it has been treated,

her with having two or three other hus

ECONOMY IN FEED.
A Discussion of the Silo in Its Re
lations to Profit in Cattle Grow
For the benefit of those who are. con
sidering the economy of the silo in the
keeping of farm stock, the following
very candid communication of Prof.
Sheldon, of the Kansas Agricultural
college, to the Industrialist is given, as
a fair statement of the appreciation of
the silo at the present time :
The question of the value of ensilage,
and the system of preserving green fod
der in air-tight vaults, called silos has
been the subject of spirited controversy
since the first employment of the meth
od in this country a dozen years ago.
The advocates of the system, it must
be admitted, have often made the most
extravagant claims for the silo. To
them it was not merely a convenient
method of storing and preserving green
fodder; by them the silo was made to
possess certain superior, occult quali
ties, by virtue of which the baser ele
ments of vegetation were transmitted
into the pure gold of perfect cattle food.
The often wild, claims of the cham
pions of ensilage for their favorite
method have provoked a corresponding
vehement opposition to the system.
Nevertheless, the progress of the silo
has been the agricultural event of the
decade. For every one that has been
abandoned a hundred have been con
structed. To-day thousands of farmers
who, ten years ago had never heard of a
silo, now own silos, and are using them
with profit and to their entire satisfac
Brushing aside all of the extrava
gances of statement that all the advo
cates of new measures of every sort are
pretty certain to indulge in, it yet re
mains true that the silo, wherever
Indian corn can be grown, has proved
its great worth with that constantly;,
growing class of farmers who estimate
COST OF EVERT OPERATION. ~f
The slipshod farmer, he who "roughs"
his cattle through anyway, in stalk 1
fields and the "timber," is not likely to
favor the more expensive methods of
the silo. ■<
We are not of those who believe that
the silo can add anything to the value 1
of contained silage. On the contrary,
the process of fermentation is neces
sarily a wasteful one, but this seems":
clear to us that this waste of the silo is
next to nothing compared with the loss:
sustained by the commoner method of
handling forage. For example we have
found, as a result of careful and oft re-*"
peated tests, that cattle will waste—
fuse to eat— all the way from.
20' to 60 per cent of com*,
mon corn fodder when cut in half
inch lengths and fed in a manager.
Good ensilaire, on : the contrary, wastes
next to nothing. . The quite uniform
report of those having in charge the
college herd has been that the uneaten
portions of ensilage, coarse buts,' etc.,
left daily by a herd of fifty cattle, when
on full allowance, could be carried in a
. half bushel measure. , This practical
; utilization of all of the feed recovered .
from, the. silo is an argument for the ;
system of ensilage not likely to be over
estimated. . 7 7' : 7,7;; .-.::;: ::"'"
■ The stock objection to the use of the .
: silo is the great cost of filling. That the
cxpensiveness of this . operation is =
greatly overestimated by inexperienced '
persons we have no doubt. The fact is,
filling a siio is nothing like as serious an
operation as threshing or even husking,
', on an ordinary farm. In filling; the silo
we simply are compelled to do a large
amount of work within quite a i limited
time. Considering* that, in filling^the : :

it, husk the ears, stack the fodder, cut
it into suitable lengths for feeding, and
grind tbe grain, "cob and all," the silo
route is the cheapest one that corn can
take between the field and the animals'
mouths. -We,' during the past season,
fill an eighty-ton silo" at an actual cost
of a fraction less than 63 cents per ton.
COne fact is ; better than a thousand
.theories, and we have in mind a fact
which to us is argument enough.. We
halve just finished feeding the contents
of a small silo, having a capacity of
Jthirty-five tons. At the rate at which
:the ensilage has been consumed, our
i crop of silage, obtained from ■ less than
nine acres of ground, will carry a herd
of fifty cattle, of which only a small
•number are under one year, from Oct.
15 until March 1, without grain, except
in a limited number of special cases.and
without hay or provender of any kind,
'.except a light midday feed of stalks or
other rough fodder fed in the yard.

COKE BROTHERS COMPLAIN.
The Lehigh Valley Charged With
Washington, Feb. 7.— The hearing
in the case of Coxe Brothers & Co., of
Drifton, Perm., against the Lehigh Val
ley Railroad company, was brought be
fore the interstate commerce commis
sion to-day. The petitioners, in their
complaint, allege that the railroad com
pany charge them a higher rate upon
anthracite coal than they charge others
upon bituminous coal, thereby giving
an unreasonable advantage to the ship
pers and producers of bituminous coal,
and that the charge so made on an
thracite coal is unreasonably high, and,
therefore, unjust. They also allege
that the Lehigh Valley . Railroad com
pany is the owner of stock of and con
trols the business of the Lehigh Valley
Coal company, a producer of anthra
cite coal aud a rival for the business of
the complainants, and that the railroad
company gives the coal company dis
criminating rates, against which the
complainants are unable to compete.
The case will occupy the attention of
the commission two or three days.
CUTS OFF THIRTY MILES.
The Northern Pacific Surveying a
Special to the Globe.
Little Falls, Feb. 7.— Civil Engi
neer W. L. Darling, of St. Paul, accom
panied by a party of ten, arrived iv this
city yesterday afternoon for the pur
pose of surveying a short line for the
Northern Pacific road, from this city to
either Wadena or Aldrich on the main
line. This cut-off will shorten the line
to Fargo about thirty miles, which will
be a big saving to the road. It is ex
pected that this move will make Little
Falls the end of a division, and all the
western business will go over the short
cut line. About three months will be
consumed in making the survey. The
party left this morning for Lake Alex
andria, from which point they will look
out the most feasible route for the new
road. This route, when built, will :
bring Fargo one hour or more nearer*

Will Reduce All Rates. 7' ,
; Chicago, Feb. The Rock Island, •
and others of the lowa lines' have de
cided to reduce all rates in that state to
the same level instead of availing them
selves of the omissions iv the commis- .
sioners schedule. ' They take the posi
tion that if they maintain the present
rates on grain, coal, live stock and salt,
no good will come of it, as the commis
sioners now have authority to reduce
those rates, and will doubtless imme
diately rectify their mistake in omit
ting the articles named from the sched
No Actual Sale Made Yet.
Boston, Feb. 7.— A prominent official
of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe
railway said to-day that he knew noth
ing of the reported sale of its Gulf,
Colorado & Santa Fe branch to the St.
Louis & San Francisco railroad. The
Boston News Bureau says:
We have interviewed both Atchison and St.
Louis A San Francisco people in regard to
the reported sale of the Dallas branch, and
they all agree it would be a good trade for
both roads, but they do not think any actual
sale has been made yet, though one may be
made after President Winslow, of the St.
Louis A San Francisco, arrives home from

Lessons of Experience Gathered
by the St. Louis Republican.
Put but little salt and pepper in the
poultry food. Excessive conoimeutal
feeding is to be avoided.
If corn is to be fed to young poultry
the better plan is to crack it, rather than
grind into meal.
During the winter care should be
taken to have the nests warm, espe
• daily if the eggs are to be saved for
If from average-sized hens small eggs
are secured, it will often be found that
the hens are too fat.
In raising what are considered fancy
fowls it is not only an item to know how
to raise them by proper mating and
breeding, but also : to know how to sell
to the best advantage.
One way of keeping the poultry house
and yard free from unwholesome odors
is to add a pint of crude carbolic
acid to about ten gallons of water and
sprinkle with a watering pot. When
the weather . will permit, spading up
will often be beneficial.
! One item that adds unnecessarily to
the cost of poultry is keeping too many
males, and especially during the win
ter, when most of their food must be
supplied. With fewer males the liens
will lay more eggs, the eggs will keep
better, and there will ' be less disturb
ance among the poultry. They are use
ful only in the latter part of winter or
early spring. 7
"-.There is one advantage in keeping
ducks and geese. In addition to the
income from the fowls when they are
ready for market, a sufficient amount
can, with a little care, be derived from
the feathers to pay well for the" cost of.
feeding. Care must be taken to pick
regularly from early in the spring until
late ; in the fall . The feathers sell
readily at good prices.
Hens that are from one to three years
old make the best breeders. It is.not a:
good plan to. use young pullets nor old .
hens. 7; Young, vigorous, well matured
stock will, in a majority of cases, give
the thriftiest offspring, that will make a •
strong, rapid growth. 7 7;
Experience .is a good teacher, even
though it is somewhat expensive. It is
an easy ■ matter to figure out on paper
that if ten hens, with good management,
can be made to return a profit of $5 1,000
hens can be made to return $500; and; j
as, under average conditions, 1,000 hens
can be purchased for $250. it figures out
a nice investment. But in a great ma
jority of cases this arrangement works
■ out better ; before this experience than
afterward. 7 7 .
