M tbe World's fair bill was the speech of
Senator Vert in oppoutSoa to any bill or
tnv world's fair. Ha did not believe the
people wanted tbe protoae4 exposition
jtjey didn't have time to bother with it. He
then turned bis attention to Chicago. It
kai been said of him in a Chicago news

fnj t never lied it wu onawc i"ry tor

What hi did say was that in a popular elec

location of tbe fair, it would be a very close
poll between baiot ant Chicago. As be

and commented on them as a scandal to tbe
American name. If we must have an expo
sition it should !e managed by the nation; as
it was now it was simply an advertis
ing scheme. It was too soon,
anyhow, after the Paris exposition. His
final objection was that in holding such a
fair we were following the example of tbe
stlete despotisms in providing amusement for
tbe people so as to divert thuir minis from
the wroujrt they suffered.

tVben tbe name of Chicago was men
tioned, said Cullofn, tbo seaittor from Mis
souri seemed to bj seizd with a kind of
hydrophobia. The senator had said tbe peo
ple of Missouri were lu doubt w hether they
would go to Chicago or hades, and this
raised the question, which place the senator
repreeii'el, but the peop'e of Hiss uri
would lie at the print exposition by tens of
thousands, w hether Vest liked it or not.
Two More Maps at Chicago.
Evarts thought nothing could be more
cognate to tbe proposition of tba wbole bill
than the two features proposed by the senate
amendment the naval review and tbe Col
umbus statue. The wbole matter to be Cel
ebrated was the discovery of America by
Columbus; the Chicago lutematio nal fair
was but an incident.
I'lumb opposed the committee's amend
ment as incongruous and t taJly inapplica
ble to the purpose of tbe b.ll. Tbe purpose
back of the amendment was that New York
sbouU have something to break its fall;
something to minimize the fair at Chicago.
It would, I'lumb thought, be small enough
anyhow, without drawing otljiny portion of
the people to witness a naval review. His
opposition to tbe naval review waa mainly
because it was essentially a monarchic! idua.

Washixotox Citt, April 22. Since the

Scheme on foot to negotiate treaties of re

far as iu provisions related to the products

This was done by Secretary Blaine because
so few of the delegates desired to make the

As the trip would have cost f 10,000, it was

April 22. An old man, trem

North Side police court yesterday morning
at the sound of his name as tbe clerk called
it Nathan DalL His eyes were inflamed,
his hair matted, his face dirty, and his
clothes unkempt. A mora pitiable looking

A Veteran in Wickedness.
There was uotbtng in his appearance that
would indicate his character. He was too
much prostratel by his own excesses. This
terrible abas-? of the little boy, who is at the
county hospital suffering from a score of
cuts and bruise, is tbe basis of a story of
brutality that extends over nearly a quartet
of a century. I'ali and the boy, whose name
is Willie, lived at 1 SO Market street. DaU
has a wife, a grown daughter, who is a
member of the Bluebeard comjiany, and ft
20-year-oid son name. Georg. With the
exception of the toy Willie, his family hai
deserted him on account of bis excessive cru

had been a d.-z, and once or twice cams so
near murdering her that her life was de
His Iaity Amusement.
His treatment of the little boy is almost
without parallel. I-s than three weeks ago
he went home, and, fin. ling the lad playing
with some other children, he hit him a crush
ing blow in the head with a hammer. Tha
boy sank dowu unconscious, and lay in a
state of turr for a w bole day without at'
tendance of any sort except what the in
human parent gava bira. Scarcely a day
passed tbat V 1 did not assault the boy and
fearfully maltr.-at him, but the little fellow
made no complaint to the neighbors or his

and limbs. The ley struggled to bis feet
once or twice an i tried to get away, but
each time was caught again, thrown down,
and subjected to tbe same punishment.
Da 11 acted more like a madman than one in
his senses. He kicked tbe prostrate chad
with a force that threatened to crush out
bis life, all the time cursing and yelling like
a demon. The boy cried for mercy, but his
appeals were answered only by fiercer
blows aul kkks until a lady living in tbe
flat ov-rbead ran out anl summoned a

to Mall's door the boy was screaming witb

Tha officer did not wait to knock for ad

on t he old fiend, w bo was standing in tbe
middle of tbe room, striking and kicking
frantically at the writhing form of a lad

Lotvdos-, April 22. The attack on Bal
four's Irish land purchase bill was begun in
thi hanss of commons yesterday by
Parnell, who, after taunting th Tories for
coming round to the views of the National
ists, said they had not come far enough
a'sound yet. He wanted to know whether
the British taxpayer would stan 1 the propo
sition. Generally the UI1 would'nt do, be
cause it was a schema to help the landlords,
not the tenants. Paruell objected to tbe
b Hon tbe ground that it did not provide
fur carrying out what it proposed, wbile it
exhausted the only Irish credit available.
The bill, be declared, was unsafe to the im
perial taxpayer, tbe guarantees and counter
guarantees it provided being Illusory anl
Ihe Irish Not Consenting.
Parnell further objecte.1 to tbe bill lo
calise it would exhaust tbe IrUh credit
without the consent of the Iri-h and with
out any total control in tbe application ot
the money to be distributed under tbe pro
visions of tbe bilL Ajaiu, while coercion is
applied as it is now tbe tenant can never be
a lrea ajn-nt lue bill did not deal a itb tbe
congested distrii-U. Dealing with tbe in
sufficiency of tbe brtl I'arnell said that the
land question was not so larg- as many
peopl supjosed, but they could make it
large by tbe met bo I of purchase propose-l
If adopted the bid must make the question
a larger question.
Not One-Fourth Enough Money.
The Lrinciid of tbe bill was to bay whole
estates, and t-CtrJ0,QUU was a ridiculously
inadequate sum for the purpose. Ireland
contained 14.000,00) acres of land, the poor
law valuation of which was A'f.CMV-""',
amounting at eighteen and a half years' purr
chase to liv. .).- O, which amount would
be necessary to provide a solution of the land
question. Otherwise three-quarters of tbs
question would be left untouched. Xiue-
tenths of tbe landlords wouid have no pros
pect except to cootinui the slr f", with ten
ants trving to obtain tbe same treatment as
the favored minority.
Propose a Crucial Test,
Paruell said that a true test of the worth
of the guarantees provided would be for
Goscben to take them to tbe London mar
ket anl try what he cou d realize upon
them. "Tbe securities, be said," cn not be
real un"ei they effect a settlement of tbe
question under local authority. Otherwi-
tbe bill is a parody on laud purchase and a
swindle on tbe English tax-payer. Cheers.
If you adopt tbe limit of tenants not
exceeding valuation you re-luce the
amount needed to work. Mr. Balfour pro
poses to give ibe landlords so many years'
pi rclia.se for reducing the rents of judicial
tenants to a sate-factory standard. The
landlord may use tbe money so ol taiael to
pay off the most onerous incumbrances,
thus effacing tbe heavy arrears of interest.
while the tenants will get the 3.1 percent
reduction hey clamor for, w.thout which
peaceable agrarian relations ar impossible.
Has a Scheme of His Onn.
Parnell suggested a proposal for a substi
tute for Balfour's bill, which be describes!
elaborate y. It is full of terms that are un
intelligible to any one not thoroughly posted
on tbe involved Irish land question. The
Parneliite members are divided in opinion
on Pameli's motion, anl think a com
plete explanation necessary.

Losdos, April 32 William O'Brien's
nove which be wrote while he was in
prison, has just b.n issued by Longman,
Green & Co. The look, w hich is entitled
"When We Were Bovs," is a historical story

well received and the revies-ers have
treated it solely on its merits, without the
slightest reference to the political character
of tbe work or the pililical I-anings of its
author. Ibe Pally News regards it as the
equal of the lst writings of Lever.
