vsiiiNGTON, Feb. S— The president
to-day transmitted to congress a quan
tity of correspondence regarding the
Samoa dispute and the protocols of the
conference of ISB7. In his formal letter
of transmittal to the president, Secre
tary Bayard says that the governments
of Germany and Great Britain have
consented to the publication of these
joint protocols. The agreement to con
sider the discussions of that conference
confidential, the secretary says, has
alone caused the papers now sent to
have been, up to , this time, withheld
from publication. A telegram from
Mr. Pendleton on Feb. 1, informed the
department that the reported action of
the German consul at Apia, who,
against the protest of the' British con
sul, had declared foreigners under
martial law, - was contrary to
instructions, and .he . had been .
rebuked, and : that the 7German
government would adhere .strictly-to
treaty status. Mr. Pendleton added
that this statement from the "German
secretary of- state for. foreign affairs' ah-,
ticipated the representations ; Mr. Pen
dleton was instructed to make, and he
would therefore withhold. them "...the
present. The following note was sent
by Secretary Bayard to Count Arco, on
My Bear Count Arco: Referring to
my note of yesterday, 1 have now the
pleasure to inform you that a telegram
lust received from Mr. Pendleton, at
Berlin, stales that the object of my in
structions to him in reference to . the
declaration of martial law by the Ger
man consul at Apia, had been antici
pated, and at the foreign office he had
been informed that the assumption of
the German consul at Apia was dis
avowed, and that such action, if it had
been taken, .7777 v-
WAS REGRETTED AND REBUKED
by the German government. This was
wholly in the line of the note verbale
you read me this morning.
Prince Bismarck to Count Arco, read
by the latter to the secretary of state
Feb. 4. The present situation in Samoa
regarding the interests of the three
treaty powers, renders it necessary to
renew the attempt to bring the future
of those islands to an understanding.
The position of the three treaty powers
in the civilized world makes it their
duty to stop the bloody combat, accom
panied by barbarous customs, of those
numerous tribes, for whose welfare, ac
cording to the judgment of the civilized
world, it is a duty. of the treaty powers
to provide. Prince Bismarck, in conse
quence, considers it a duty of the par
ticipating governments to put an end,
by the agreement of treaty powers,
to the troubles which have origi
nated in Samoa by restitution of peace
among the Samoans themselves, and so
make an end of future bloodshed and
the horrors of a civil war, conducted
with barbarous cruelty among the
natives. . The best remedy seems to be
a resumption of the consultation which
took place between the representatives
of Germany, England and the United
States in the year 1887 at Washington,
and at that time adjourned without any
possibility of their representatives com
ing to an agreement. In consequence, I
have been requested by Prince Bis
marck to propose to you to resume with
Germany and the British government
the consultation regarding the Samoan
question. The last conference took
place at Washington. According to the
equal rights of the three treaty powers
it seems proper that, the place tor the
negotiations should 7.
CHANGE IN" REGULAR TURN.
Based upon this opinion, I am di
rected to invite the government of the
United States to a conference regarding
Samoa, to take place at Berlin, and a
similar invitation has been sent to the
British government. 1 am also di
rected to declare that any supposition
that Germany would not feel satisfied
with a neutral position in the Samoan
islands is unfounded. As we have al
ready declared in the last conference (of
1887), it is neither our intention to put in
question the independence of the island
group, nor the equal rights of the treaty
powers. We simply desire to create a
condition which otters permanent se
curity for bringing to an end bloodshed
and decapitation, and which grants per
manent safety to the commercial inter
ests of the three treaty powers in Samoa.
Mr. Bayard to Count Arco, Department
of Stale. Washington, Feb. s. Sir:
The president having been made ac
quainted fully with th. tenor of the in
structions received by you from Prince
Bismarck, and read by you yesterday
from my transcription, he requested
me to say that he fully shares in the de
sire expressed by the prince chancellor
to bring the blessing of peace and order
to the remote and feeble community of
semi-civilized people inhabiting the
island of Samoa; and that he clearly
recognizes the duty of the powerful na-""*
tions of Christendom to deal with these
people in a spirit of
MAGNANIMITY AND BENEVOLENCE.
On behalf of the United States gov
ernment the president instructs me to
express his acceptance of the proposal
of the government of Germany to re
sume the consultations held in this city
between the representatives of the
United States, ' Germany and Great
Britain, which was suspended on the,
24th day of July, 1887, such consultation
to be renewed as it was undertaken, for
the purpose of establishing peace, and
an orderly stable government in the
Samoan islands, on the basis of their
recognized independence and the. equal
rights of the three treaty powers. The
resumption of such c^ivfererjce. as is
now proposed by Prince Bismarck*. upon
the general lines advanced by each of
the three powers, as set forth in the
Erolocols of the conference as far as it
as progressed and embracing ceitain
points of agreement, appears to present
a hopeful prospect for securing the
welfare of the Samoan people, and such
a neutralization of territorial jurisdic
tion as will prevent preponderant con
trol by any nation, and secure equal
right.., or commerce and navigation to
.nil.'" The sooner this conference can be
resumed the better, and in view of the
late deplorable scenes of bloodshed
which have been . exhibited upon
Samoan soil, entailing deep, regrettable
Joss to Germany, it appears to _3 essen
tial that a truce should be forthwith
proclaimed, and further armed action
should arrested. - A contention of
arms by such a .7 7
. SCANTY BAND as THE SAMOANS, .
against the vast armaments of Ger
many has, of course, but one result, as
sured in advance, and would be mani- .
festly futile. 7 There is no feature of
equality in such a struggle. As the as
surance of Prince Bismarck, that the
pacification of the Samoan troubles and
the occupation of a neutral position are
his only objects, is frankly accepted by
the United States, as it is . tendered by
Germany, it is suggested, in further
ance of the desired result of the confer
ence, that instructions to suspend bellig
erent action and await the action of
such conference should at once be tel
egraphed to their respective officers in
Samoa by the three treaty powers. To
continue to prosecute a war of de
struction and reprisal, even upon ad
mitted provocation, would surely
not consist with the objects of
any of the •■ three powers. It
is hoped, therefore, that orders of the
nature indicated, will be forwarded to
Samoa without delay. The announce
ment of the conference between the
treaty powers, it is confidently expected,
will at once cause a cessation of hostili
ties among the natives. And their
speedy election of a king would certain
ly be a long step toward harmony. Ex
cept as the condition may be changed -
by a free election of a king by the nat
ives, itis deemed essential that the af
lairs in Samoa should remain in statu
quo, pending the conference. If we
may indulge in hope, which the adop
tion of suggestions promises for a suc
cessful issue of the conference, the gov
vernment of the United States
WILL AT ONCE TAKE STEPS ..-•
to tt properly represented at the meet-,
ing (i such conference in Berlin. The
statements you read me, as emanating
from the German consul at 'Samoa, in
which he finds fault with the conduct of
Capt. Leary, of the "Nipsic." and of i
Mr. Blacklbck, the United States con
sul, as violative of the instructions of
this government to maintain an impar
tial attitude in the conflicts in Samoa,
do not appear to be substantiated by an
averment of any personal knowledge of
the facts, but must have been based
upon information and belief only, or 7
are reported at second-hand and must
be classed as merely hearsay evidence.
These conflicting statements of the-
German consul wilt be brought to the
attention of Capt. Leary and Mr. Black
lock, ami their reply will u.e communi
cated. Much allowance must be made
for the excitement prevailing in Samoa,
which is not favorabie to accuracy or
moderation of statement, especially of
those concerned as actors. .•':.'

PROTOCOLS i ARIZ ED:
They Show That Germany Wants
the Big End of Everything.
The protocols of the conference be
tween the United States, Germany and
England, which began at Washington
July 25, 1887, shows that at the first
meeting a memorandum was submitted
on behalf of the United States. It pro
vided for the independence and auton
omy of the kingdom of the island of
Somoa, for a native king and respect
for native customs and traditions. It
further provided for a constitution; also
that the foreign consuls should retain
permanent jurisdiction over their coun
trymen, ami that each of the treaty
powers could alternately keep a man-of
war in Samoan waters four months in
each year. The German minister 'said
that Malietoa had notoriously violated
his treaty obligations; that the Samo
ans are incapable of maintaining peace
and order, and therefore he suggested an
ADVISOR TO THE KING. Is~ 7
this advisor to "act as the mandatory of
the three powers." He acknowledged
absolute equality of : treatment in re
spect of commerce, navigation, juris
diction and all other matters.. The
British minister favored an interna- .
tional land court and an unaltered con- .
sular jurisdiction, as Malietoa and 'lain
asese were then at war. At the confer-:
ence on July 2, Mr. Bayard said he un
derstood that all a.reed upon the fol
lowing point: That there snould be no
annexation of the islands by any treaty
Dowers; that the independence of the
islands was to be preserved with equal
right of commerce and navigation for
the subjects of the treaty powers; .that '.
the native government was to be estab
lished and assisted to maintain itself ;
that the present jurisdiction of consuls,
over their own countrymen should be
preserved; that the present treaties be
maintained so far as the rights of the
three powers under them were con
cerned; that means for the raising of
revenue for the support of the govern
ment should be devised, and the ques
tion of taxing foreigners should be con
sidered; that a land court should be es
tablished to settle titles, etc. Mr.
Bayard said that Germany and. Great
Britain proposed that there should be
only a king and council of chiefs. The
United States would suggest a king, a
council of chiefs and a legislative
assembly, composed of representatives
elected by the people of the islands.
The German minister said if there was
such a legislative assembly as Mr.
Bayard proposed, it should have a con
NOT A DECIDING VOTE,
and with this understanding, he was
not opposed to such an assembly. Mr.
Bayard said that there were some other
points on which the propositions of the
powers did not run so closely together.
The first was as to kingship. The
United States, in view of existing,
treaties and declaration made by con
suls, had proposed the continued recog
nition of Malietoa Lanpepa as king and
of Tamasese as vice king. The British
and German government proposed a new
election. In this, for the sake of com
ing to an agreement, he was disposed to
concur. The customs of the Samoans
should prevail in it, and the result of
election should be announced to and de
clared by the three consuls, who
should not otherwise participate in the
proceedings. Mr. Bayard said his pro
posal to let Malietoa remain as king hail
been objected to by Germany and
Great Britain. The German minister
asked whether the . newly-elected
king should not be approved; by the
powers? Mr. Bayard thought not. The
German minister said people .might
nominate the king and the powers con
firm him. Mr. Bayard objected to this
on the ground that this would virtually
give the powers the choice of a king.
Mr. Bayard said that there had been a
proposition from Germany which had
met with a certain degree of recogni
tion from Great Britain, that the power
having the greatest present commercial
interest should exercise a preponderat
ing influence. To that he (Mr. Bayard)
would object. At the conference on
July 9, the land commission proposed
by Mr. West was _ discussed. Mr. Bay
ard opposed it as " _CTtaß '
EMBARRASSING THE COURT.
The German minister coincided with
Mr. West. At: the fourth conference.!;
held July 10, the German minister Said
that Mr. Bayard had stated that if the
German plan were followed, it would re
sult eventually in converting the islands
into a German possession. Mr. Bayard
replied that he had understood the prop
osition of the British minister to be thai
the three gOvefu_tß_& should alternate
in the appointment of, the mandatory,
but that in consideration of its greater
interest, Germany should have tne first
five years. He thought that the recog
nition of a preponderance lof interest
would weaken the neutrality of the isl

ands. The German minister said that
Mr. Bayard's plan for a co-operation of.
the three Dowers had been tried in the
municipal" board of Alpia, and had ap
proved a failure there. He quoted from
the report of I Mr. Thurston as follows :
"The great object of a Samoan party,
when seeking to gain an ascendency, is
to intrigue for foreign support, .and
hence much of the trouble has arisen."
The co-operation of the two other
powers! the minister said, with k the
power having the predominating inter
est, would best bring about the result
that all desired. On July 21st, the fifth
conference was held. The land title
court was discussed at great length and
during the discussion the question of
control came up again. Mr. Bayard
asked Mr. West if he expressed the
views of the British minister, when he
said that the mandatory scheme did not
involve the recognition of any prepon
derance of interest, which he thought
ought not to be taken into account in
dealing with the matters before the
conference. "Certainly," said Mr.
West. . The German minister inter
posed the objection that he could not
allow the adoption of a plan which
would at any time throw the
CONTROL OF THE ISLANDS
into the hands of either of the two
countries whose interests were less than
those of Germany. Mr. Bayard said
that the proposed land commission was
the corner-stone of the arrangement,
but in the plan proposed by Germany the
preponderance of interests were to be
made the beginning and the middle and
the end of the whole thing. Mr. West
said that he could not see it in that
way. At the conference of July -0 the
German minister read a paper in which
he defined the meaning of the. mem
orandum read at the second conference
to be that Germany, hying the largest
interest in Samoa, she claims to be en
trusted by the other two powers to ex
ercise the efficient control there, as well
for her own interests as for those of
Great Britain and the United States.
Mr. Bayard asserted that the plan of
the German minister was a foreign auto
cratic government, based on mercantile
interests. Mr. Bayard favored an ad
journment until autumn, in order to
give tne governments of Germany and
Great Britain time to consider the

Special to the Globe.
Washington, Feb. B.— The naval and
fortification appropriation bills were
reported and placed on the calendar of
the senate to-day. Mr. Evarts gave no
tice that he would call up Monday next
the resolution reported from the com
mittee on privileges and elections re
lating to the Texas outrages. Mr.
Stewart offered a resolution for the ap
pointment ot a select committee of
seven to consider the subject of irriga
tion and the best method of reclaiming
the arid lands of the United States.
Referred. Mr. Chandler's resolu
tion as to naval officers' claims
and in relation to the removal of em

the resolution of Mr. Gibson, for an in
quiry, as to the state of suffrage through
out the United States, with the substi
tute offered by Mr. Chandler as to the
recent election in Louisiana, were re
ferred to the committee, on privileges
and elections. The senate then tool
up the house bill to quiet title of settlers
on the Dcs Moines river lands in lowa.
Mr. Evarts opposed the bill. He said it
had been before congress for many
years, but had passed the two houses
but once (last congress), when it was
vetoed by the president in a message
that was brief and terse, and
presenting precisely the legal and
constitutional questions involved.
Mr. Wilson, of lowa, defended the bill,
and without further debate the bill was
passed. The legislative appropriation
bill was then taken up. The amend
ment to increase the clerical force of
the civil service commission was re
jected, and the bill Was passed. The
Union Pacific refunding bill was taken
up; the pending question being Mr.
Mitchell's motion to recommit the. bill
with instructions to include in its
provisions the Central Pacific railroad.
• Mr. Mitchell made a speech in sup
port of his resolution at the conclusion
of which the bill went over without ac
tion. The disagreeing conference re
port on the South Dakota admission bill
was presented, and a new conference
ordered. A message from the president
on Samoan affairs was read, and after
the passage of a number of private
pension bills, the senate at 5:30 p. m.,
adjourned till to-morrow. /

Washington, Feb. B.— The computa
tions made by the treasury experts upon
the probable effect .of the senate
amendments to the tariff bill reached
the committee -.on .ways and means to
day, and were sent to the printer. 7- A
Democratic member of the committee
says the tables shew that one-half of
the reduction of $25,000,000 effected by
the changes in the sugar schedule is
wiped out by changes in the other
tariff schedules, which in themselves
would result in a considerable increase
in the revenue. This would leave the
net reduction of revenue about twelve
or thirteen million, leaving the internal
revenue sections out of the calculation.

Wilkesbarre,' Pa., Feb. B.— At the
trial of Red-Nosed Mike to-day, Will
iam Oplingcr, an old hunter, testified to
Mike's showing him. a rifle purchased
here in August last, and on i being'
shown the rifle found by Capt. Linden
in the woods, identified it positively as
being ; the same • one. Edward Kim
erer, of this city, testified to having sold
the rifle to Mike and his companions.
Antonio 7 Napellello, a bright young
Italian, nineteen years of age, says that
on July 1 Mike asked him to take part
in the. murder and robbery of the pay?
master; he refused, and Mike warned
him not to tell anyone tinder pain of
death. Two days .afterwards Mike and
Sevenno again approached him on the
subject, but he refused, when they ;
again threatened him with death. Wit-'
ness soon after-left^ here and went to
Shenandoah. He never told any one of
Mike's proposition, -as he was not
sure that Mike had done the murder.
Three witnesses testified to Mike's
having admitted committing the mur
der, but say that he claims to have done
it because he was afraid to refuse for
fear of a secret Italian society, whose
headquarters I are %in j New York. He
said he would sooner- commit the mur
der and take his chances, with the law
than refuse and take chances with the
society,., Francisco Chiviacco, of Phila
delphia, who had been in jail here for- a
month, was introduced > to Mike by
Beverino, and later on he and Mike
. were.. out together, when he said to
Mike: "Beverino told me all about
you," meaning that Beverino had said
that Mike was. the . head officer of a
secret Italian 7 society, which is very
strong in Chicago at present. Mike,
supposing that Chiviacco was referring
to the - murder. -told him ; : the circum
stances,-. and how he himself (Mike) was
the instigator. 7 When: Chiviacco told
Mike that his confederates had gone to
Italy Mike cried and said that the r 7*;i.
FATAL SHOTS WERE FIRED
and to no purpose, since they had taken
all the moneyand left him here perm less.
He then had the witness write to parties
in Italy, who sent back money for Mike
to escape the country. 7 At the evening'
session Capt. Linden detailed the cap
ture of MiKo. His confession- was read
in evidence. 7 It details one of the most
horrible and diabolical: schemes ever
perpetrated. 7 Mike was also put on the
stand.. He merely, testified, at this time
to what took : place in Capt. Linden's
office while: in Philadelphia. Capt..
Linden detailed how after they
left Philadelphia under cover of dark
ness. Mike led them to the mountain
spot, and there some of the money, the
rifle, satchel and several cartridges
were found among the rocks. He knew
everything. . Capt. Linden's . story
caused the r most intense excitement
in .court, . and 7 -the 7 wretch,; as
he sat at the defendant's table, -was a
picture of utter, dismay. The story
of the.planning and shooting reads like
a novel. The court adjourned until to
morrow morning. In his confession^'
Mike details how Antonio Napolello,
Beverino and himself ; were practicing
with a revolver, when Beverino re
marked, "By G— d, we ought to get that j
money from- the paymaster when he
comes up the road. The three of us can
do it without being : discovereo." An
tonio and I said "yes, we are satisfied."
Several more conferences were held,
and later 1 went to Wilkesbarre on
business. Beverino went with me, and
while going down the road he was look
ing for a good ... -7.
. PLACE TO DO THE MURDER. 7. ,
He mentioned two or three places -as
good ones, and I said yes. When we
got in town we went into a gun store
and bought a Winchester rifle. Then
we left the store and went to Parsons.
From there we went .to the shanty. 7 1
carried the rifle. It. was a 44-caliber
Winchester rifle, sixteen shots. On the:
way to the shanty Bevt-rino was hunt
ing for a place to hide the rifle. He
found a place about a quarter or halt a
mile from No. 7 shanty, alongside of a
creek under a big stone or rock under a
big tree. This tree stands on the rock.
He put the rifle under the rock, and
also the cartridges. He said nothing
about the murder from that time until
two or -three -7; days later. Then
be went away -to Philadelphia
to hear about work. He -returned
on Monday. The next morning I went:
into Wilkesbarre with Beverino and
Vinceuzo Vilello. We, went to a store
where there was a gun. Neither. of '
them would go inside but sent me In.
Beverino must have told Vilello about
the job and the rifle, |as he seemed to
know all about it. 1 got the rifle and all
three; of us went back to the hiding
place and placed the rifle under the big
stone. | Nothing was said about the pro
posed murder until the 17th of October;.
when the three of us stood in No. I
shanty and spoke about it and Bever-
said we would have to go down the'
road to-morrow or next day. Then
Vilello seemed to lose courage . and
Beverino said that the man who loses*
courage, gets killed. I then said: 'Who ■
is to do the shooting?' Beverino said:
" 7*l will it;' . 7 r .£
and he said to Vilello: 'All you got to
do is to take anything 1 : . hand you,' and
he said to me: ,'Mike, you go down the
road, and let us .know when they. are
coming.' He said: : 'I've ; got a ; good
rifle, and, could shoot more than two
men.' On the morning of the murder
it was raining, and I did not think they
wou'd go to get the money, so I went to
the clumps and saw them start. When
I got down to the place where we were
to wait they were not there. -McClure
and Flanagan passed me, but 1 did not
speak to them. When they got to a lit
tle hill they went slow, and I ~ followed ;
them. 7 I saw Beverino come up .and
s*-?ot from the bushes. He shot Mc- '
Cl ure twice iii tbe back.: He then shot
the other . man; and .I- think hie him.
Then Vilello came up in front of them. r
and shot the other man twice : in the'
face. I bad' a * revolver ;in my hand,
running after. . then. .7 The horse
ran, and McClure **ras hanging with
his feet under t]_-_- wheel. _W_ eh^ they

shot the horse and shot McClnre - again
; in the face.- -He then shot a good many
-times at the horse. 7 1 was standing still
; and he cursed me and got very white,
"and said: 'Here, you hold this gun and
If anybody comes you kill them.' 1 held
it and .with the knife he cut the straps
that held the valise to the - buggy, then
put the valise on his shoulders and said,

»nd muddy, and •we went up and took
the money and' hid : it 7: a - couple 7of
miles from; the scene, of the murder;
also the gun. I shot four times: don't
know whether 1 hit anybody. Beverino
fired about fifteen shots. . ;.;7 ':'

An Explosion of Dynamite Wrecks
|v-" a Brewery iii Gotham.
' New York, Feb. B.— A terrific ex
plosion this evening blew a hole through
[the two-foot wall of David : Stevenson's
brewery, and : shattered * hundreds of
windows on Tenth avenue in the neigh
borhood "of Fortieth street, where it oc
curred. : Fortunately, scarcely a human
being was seriously hurt. Who placed
the dynamite bcmb— for such, it is be
lieved, was the cause of the explosion— ■
is a mystery. The motive for the deed
is only a matter of -conjecture. David
-' .Stevenson's brewery and malt house
stands on the southwest corner of Tenth
avenue and Fortieth street, in the neigh
:' borhood of a ' bad region -known
as "Hell's Kitchen." The struc
ture i extends from Thirty-ninth
street to Fortieth street - and
westward about 250 feet. The struct
ure is seven stories high. 1 Between the
sidewalk and the wall of | the brewery
extending from the corner of Fortieth
street westward, is an open plat of
ground, surrounded by an -iron: railing.
In .this area the explosion occurred.
'Mr. Stevenson has lately been involved

hough the charges were disproved, a

■removed however, as unjust. 7- Not' one
of his men left him during the fight how
ever, and now in the vicinity of the
brewery it is thought that malice, be
cause of these facts, prompted % the -act
to-night. -7 -Nearly -opposite,, the ; spot
where the supposed bomb burst is the
residence of Key. Father Gleason, pastor
of ( the church of | St. Raphael. The
priest was standing at the % window ot
his study in the central front room on
the second floor. He tells the story of
"-.lie explosion as follows: "While 1 was
looking out 1 felt a sudden shock and
heard a terrific noise at the same in
stant. Glass was falling in splinters all
around me. Mv first thought was that
a frightful accident of some kind had
happened, and I rushed for my stole
arid oil stock and breviary to -be ready
to administer the ' 7.
7' SACRAMENT OF EXTREME UNCTION.
7H'I felt horrified to think what fearful
scenes I might soon witness, of injuries
to life and Umbras- I made my way to
the street. Thanks to God no one .was
injured so far as I could see.' There was
9 blinding glare 7 accompanying the
sound of ; the ."explosion; but j ! what the
color of the flash was I could not say."
One of Father^Gleason's? assistants is
Father Daniel Dwyer. He was
also In the house when the bomb burst.
Said he: '■* "1 thought it j was *- 'hell's
kitchen' blown up. 7 : . For a second or two
1 was so stunned by the concussion of
air that! could not think. Then seizing
mv stole arid - oil stock I went to the,
ground floor. A glance on the street
explained all." One of -the domes-:
tics -'-'in ■'thetv*'- house said that
she was in the dining room
on the street .floor and . looking
almost across toward where the missile
exploded. She said she saw something
like -a ball of fire, and at the same in
stant she heard the big boom, and the
glass flew from the window panes as if
invisible "sledges were hammering
them. • All the glass in front of the
church was broken. 1 John and"Edward
Dunn, brothers, are bartenders in a
'neighboring saloon. : John was drawing
a glass of beer when the explosion oc
• curred, and the glass was blown out of
his hand, and Ed was flung back against
the pump with a .force that caused in
ternal injuries. Just at the spot where
the explosion is thought to have been
are five drying kilns, but Mr. Stevenson
is positive that gas did not cause the
explosion. Fire Chief Gicquel, who was
present, was of -the opinion that the
bomb was thrown from the roof of the
tenement across -the way by a steady
hand and a good shot. : It is stated that
at a drug store near the: scene four
women had been brought to premature
confinement by the explosion. 77

/•: Wheeling, W. Va., Feb. B— The
greatest excitement prevails among the
tanners throughout a region .; covering
about ten milef in Wetzel county, the
-cause being the '■ discovery, that 1 there
are from eight to ten dogs afflicted with
rabies, within the territory named, run
ning-wild through the woods and over
the fields. For a month past live stock
on numerous farms have been found
dead, and hogs , and cattle observed to
'be suffering from what was thought to
be fits, but the cause was not suspected
until yesterday, when it was ascertained
a number of horses, cattle and hogs had
• been bitten . by mad dogs, and that two
! children," Morgan by name, had shared
■in the same fate. The 7 disease; is sup
posed to have originated in the county
'late last fall, and. to have spread since.
There is the" greatest anxiety for the
Morgan children,' as the dog that
"jvoanded ti.em has- since- died, and an
-1 other dog bitten by it before its death
has gone mad. The farmers will inau
gurate a general raid; and kill all dogs
for a dozen miles around, in the hope of
stamping out the disease.' lln Marshall

\V. Smith, aged seventy, is lying at the

MUNCHAUSEN 1. 8, CARON.
He Continues ; His Wild Tale Be-
.* fore the Parnell-. Commission. - *
Special Cable to the Globe. 7.77:'
London, Feb. The session of the
Parnell- commission was resumed this
morning. . Mr. Parnell, who was present:
during a part of yesterday's sitting, did
not appear to-day in court. Le Caron' s
cross-examination : was continued.' -' He
said that during the last fortnight he.
got various documents from Mr. Ander
son, an official connected with the home
office, who allowed him to- see all the
correspondence with the department on
this subject. ' Mr. Anderson after
wards . introduced * Le - Caron - to
Secretary ~ " Houston, "of the Loyal j
Patriotic union The - witness said
that for the first three years of his self-;
imposed employment as spy he received;
no pay from the government, and now :
he only received pay in part. Mr. An
derson had opposed his testifying be- *
fore the commission, and declared if he:
did so he would do it on his own re
sponsibility. Anderson selected the doc
uments he thought would be useful in
giving evidence, 'but it was Houston
who selected those which had been read
in court. "I made the first proposal. to
come here and testify," said Le Caron.
Referring to America, the witness said
that the Irish brotherhood had captured
and controlled the National league. . Le
Caron said he had "practiced medicine
and kept a drug store and had become
rich. 7 He had held a high military office
in the brotherhood, but never an execu
tive office. Bradley, of Philadelphia,
was now at the.
HEAD OF THE EXECUTIVE. 7
In 1882 the Brotherhood numbered
22,000 members. . That number is now
higher and is increasing. The sup-_
pression of the league and the persecu
tion of Irish members of parliament
gave an impetus to the organization.
"Devoy," said Le Caron, "is a profes
sional Irish politician. After the con
vention in 1881 both parties were of the
same mind about outrages. Some
thought that the league would become a
source of danger to the Brotherhood."
Sir Charles Russell quoted from a re
port which read: "Serious danger
menaces us "from the league, which
threatens to crush revolutionary move
ment." The witness said he believed
the words in the report "extreme lead
ers" referred to Parnellite members of
parliament. The League and Brother
hood sent out- subscriptions to the
League in Ireland. The Brotherhood
tried to control the subscriptions in
tended for the league. Le Caron said
that all the delegates to the convention
had credentials from the league or clubs
affiliating therewith. Sir Charles Rus
sell asked that Le Caron's letters to the
government, covering this matter, be
produced. Le Caron— Do you wish to
risk men's lives? Sir Charles Russell—
The judges will see the letters first and
decide whether the names should be
published. Later Mr. Russell handed
to the: judges a paper, stating that it
contained so grave a statement that he
wished to obtain the opinion of the
judges whether -it should be . noticed.
The witness said that in the West of
Ameri.a the Irish demonstrations were
exclusively, and the East mainly, in the
THE REVOLUTIONARY PARTY. 7' -
At the most of the meetings the
mayors of ■ the : repective * towns pre-,
sided, and respectable people attended.
Sir .Charles Russell quoted from the
preamble of the constitution of the Na
tional League of . America to show that
the object- of the organization was the
establishment of peasant proprietorship
and just laws. Witness said . that Gen..
Jones was the originator of communica
tions 7 between the "17 R. B." and the
; Russian " minister „at : Washington in
view of a possible war between England
and Russia. .-7 7 -*> ■■■'--- r.

to-day with committing perjury in his
. testimony before \ the Parnell : commis
sion. Charles Matthews, counsel for the
Times was "prosecutor. He stated that
Molloy had tricked the Dublin solicitor
for the Times by revelations concern
ing the Fenian brotherhood and the In
vincibles. Molloy afterward denied be
fore the commission that he was either
a Fenian or an Invincible. The prose
cution ascertained that Molloy had been
both, and they had evidence to prove
perjury. Patrick Delaney, who was
sentenced to death for complicity in the
Phoenix park murders, his sentence be
ing afterward commuted to life impris
onment, was the first witness. He
knew -Molloy;- first met him at
a Fenian meeting at Mullet's pub
lic house in Dublin in 1880. In 1881
Molloy : became "sub-center." having
charge of 7 arms. HHre r gave witness a
rifle and a sword bayonet. Mullet kept
a secret arsenal, which was supplied by
the American- association. ; Witness

Hynes. The jurymen were to be made

"1 ain't built that way."
The grangers had control of the hous_
yesterday on the Sevatson resolution
that the speaker should appoint a
special committee of seven to inquire
into the approximate cost of the con
struction of the several railroads in this
state and their present value. The ob
jectionable part of the resolution was
that which authorized the committee to
employ a clerk, said clerk to be selected
by the chairman of the committee, and
to be an expert in railroad construction
and to receive the same pay as is re
ceived by the assistant sergeant-at
arms. Mr. Crossfield introduced a sub
stitute for this, providing that the reg
ular railroad committee of the house
should; do this. Mr. Capser amended
by referring, that the board of railroad
commissioners should ascertain ' what
was desired. Mr.' Benson was the first,
to take the floor in opposition to the
resolution. His text is well expressed.
