were found to be disqualified because they
were obliged to confess to such a pre
jadice against the ClanaGael that the
accused might not receive a fair trial at
their hands. Tbrse candldatea for the
Jury bot but gave expression to a eentl-
eaent that permeates the entire country
Tbla does not mean that there ia any
lack of sympathy with legitimate efforts
to ameliorate the condition of Ire
land, bat It doe signify that the
great mass of the American peo
pie look with horror and hatred
upon any bsLsl of men whose avowed ob
ject ia a murderous guerilla warfare upon
a friendly power. It is a national shame
that this thing his been allowed to go un
checked as long a It has. What would
be thought la this country if the British
government permitted an aocleiion to
elt In Kokand that openly advertised
its intention of harravsing American com
pierce, murdering American citizens, and
actually did succeed on two or three oc
canons In inflicting serious injury to our
public buildings by the une of dynamite?
What would be thought if Hie British
government pandered to this society, even
going so far as to appoint one of Its
leading spirits its representative to an im
porta nt foreign power? It Is safe to say
that England would be called to account
with a very sharp turn.
Congress should take steps to at once
abate this breach of international comity

Sometimes the employee steps into Lit

v a are pleated to learn that Mr. C. C.

to Dr. Fleming in bis drug store, bat
bought out that store and will tucceed to
tbe doctor't buaineas. We are aorrv that

which be bat been long and profit ably
employed. About tbe 1st of May, 1304,
lira. Fleming X Lyford bought out C.
W. Bennett, who bad been keeping a
small drug store in what is now known
at tbe Trent warehouse, opposite Trent
ft Son't present store. They kept
the drug store la that building over a
year, when Honeywell, IMI A Co., wbo
owned tbe building, raised tbe rental and
tried to sell them the place at a large
price. Pr. Fleming, wbo meanwhile bad
bought out Dr. Lyford't interest, rot
clud.d not to be Imposed upon, and
made a bargain with Wainrigbt Jt Tem
ple to erect the building at present oc
cupied by tbe drug store, and moved hi
goods into the tame on tbe S2d day f
December, 198.1. Be baa remained here
since then, uniting tbe drug business
with bis active professional practice. C
C Coyne became hit clerk In January.
1877, and by close application aoon made
himself familiar with tbe business. Five
year later Mr. Coyne bought out Dr. Ly
ford't drug store, and moved it from the
west tide of Main street acroaa to its
present location. He hat been so pros
perous in business since then that lie baa
been able to buy out hia former employer.

He Was That Boy.
Sitting In the rotunda of tbe Alexander
hotel of Louiftvilla, Proctor Knott told this
"It was the most remarkable scene I ever
witnessed. It occurred during my earlv man
hood, when I was attorney general of Mis
souri. Robert Stewart was then goveroorof
that stnte. One day I waa in lis private
office wben he pardoned a tan.bnat man
for some erim. What it was 1 have forgot
ten, but that does uot matter. The man bail
been brought from the penitentiary to tbe
governor's odi -e. He was a Inrra, powerful
follow, with tbe rough manner of buclaaa.
"The governor looked at the steamboat
man and seemed strangely affivted. He
scrutinized him long and clcwely. Finally he
signed the document that reotored him to
liberty, but before he handed it to him said:
'Ton will commit some other crime, and be
In the penitentiary again, 1 fear.' Tbe man
solemnly promised that be mould not. Tbe
governor lookxd doubtful, mused a few mo
menta, and said:
"'You will go hack on the river and be a
mate again, I tupposef
"Tbe man replied that be would.
"'Well, I want you to promise me one
thing,' resumed tbe governor, '1 want yon to
pledge your word that wben you are a mate
again you will never take a billet of wood In
your band and drive a sick boy out of a bunk
to balp you kavl your boat on a stormy
night.' Tbe staaoilioat man amid that be
would not, and be Inquired what the gov
ernor niaant by requiring such a promise.
"Tbe governor replied: 'Because soma day
that boy may become a governor, and you
may want him to pardon you for a crime.
One dark, stormy night many years ago you
topped your boat on the Miausiippl to take
on a load of wuod. There waa a boy on
board wbo waa working bis pasaaga from
Mew Orleans to St. Louis, but be waa very
sick of fever and was lyinz In a bunk. You
had plenty of men to do tbe work, but you
wont to that liny wltb a stick of wood In
your band and drove him with blows and
rursee out Into the wretched niht, and knpt
him toiling like a slave until the kavl was
completed, i waa that boy. Here Is your
par. Ion. .Never again l guilty of such bru
tality.' And the man, cowering and biding
hie face, went out. As 1 never beard of him
again, I suppose be took care not to break
tbe law." Cor. Mow York Sun.

There are few white domestic servants here,

a letter in wh ch he aay: "Say what tbe
sentimentalists of tbe north may, tbe south

long enough, and to stand longer in our
own light is to be untrue to our section and
to those wbo tire to follow in our places.
We have argutd and with these people only
to receive their answer at tbe polls: 'We are
opposed to yoi and your methods.' Free

Chicago, Oct. 28. The Herald says: The
Vaoderbilt-Union Pacific coalition will be
met by combined opposition on the part of
all tbe lines not in tbe deal Tbe leaders of
the opposition are tbe Union Pacific's old
partners in tbe tripartite agreement ot 18h5.
Tbat agreement waa made by the Union
Pac.n Chicago, Rock Island and Pacifio
an 1 tbe Chicago, Milwaukee and 8t Paul
It provided for an interchange of all traffic,
both passenger and freight, to the exclusion
ot all lines outside of the agreement, Tbe
compact was made for twenty years, and its
foundation stone waa the provision that it
could not be broken save by unanimous con
sent. rhe "Q" Broke la, Uowever.
Single bandel the Chicago, Burlington
and (juiticy attanked the allied lines and
forced them to modify tbe ironclad regula
tions regard ing the interchange of traffic,
and admit it to tbe agreement as a full part
ner. Time and time again Charles Francis
Adams has veroally and in writing protest
ed tbat Uie tripartite agreement wae a sa
cred one, and come what might should never
be violaU-d by tbe Union Pacific. The agree
ment made between the Chicago and North
western mid Union RiC nV, which is now
cLtimin tbe atutnuou of the entire railway
world. Is charg-1 br the Ciiicag t, Burling
ton and Q uncy and tbe Rock bland to be
a direct violation of the tripartite agreement
Aa Aggravating Feature.
An especially aggravating feature of this
violation is that the Northwestern is analien
hue Jut.si.le tbe oil alliance. Believing
that agreement really do amount to aome
tliing, tbe roa Is with whom the Union Pa
cific has brck-n faith are now making ar
rangements to compete with the Northwest
ern and Union Pacific alliance. It means
nothing less than fight from tbe drop of tbe
bat. It not already signed, there ia in ex
istence a compact tie t ween the Burlington,
tbe Rock Inland and the Milwaukee and St.
Paul roads providing that tbey shall stand
shoulder to shoulder in the fight against tbe
Vanderbilt combine. The manager of one
of these roads said yesterday:
"What the Burlington did single-handed

Rome Railway Geography.
Tbe Burlington and tbe K cfc Island
reach from Chicago to Deuver. From Den
ver to Ogdn there is tbe Rio Grande,
which in a short time will be changed from
narrow to broad guage. From Oden to tbe
coast the Southern F acinc controls nearly
every mile of track south of tbe Oregon
slate line clear to Mexico, with a branch
into Portland. It is germane to the subject
to mention tbe fact that the Southern Pa
cific is a bitter foe of the Union Pacific. The
Milwaukee and St Paul competes with tbe
Northwestern to every important point on
the letter's system, and from St. Paul there
is an independent line to Lake Superior at
Lululh, with which tbe Milwaukee and St
Paul can easily fleet a trtflij arrange
ment. TI.e llovrntt to Take a Hand.
It is proposed by the lines above to boy
cott every line in the anderbilt svstem.
Neither ir-ight nor passenger traffic is to be
interchanged with tbe anderbilt or Union
Pacific systems. AU east-bound business ia
to 1 divided equally between the anti- an
derbilt lines running east from Chicago. It
anv rate-cutting follows the strained situa
tion the Milwaukee and St Paul is to punish
the Northwestern in its own home. It is
proposed to read the riot act aboat violating
agreements and the formation of gigantic
consolidations which rouet result in ruin to
vast systems of railway. It is more than
probable tbat tbe Gould lines will be invited
to join in the fight against the andcrbilta.
