Mr. Okst told the people last night at
Moline tbat It was a good thing for them
to pay high taiea. That is hl say. The
people will have a chance to hare their
say in November.
The Chicago OUbe assim's the people
that Cook county will give a good demo

state of Illinois an overwht lining demo
cratic victory next month. Amen.
The republicans have found another
fault with Mr. Cable. He has painted his
house red. As Mr. Oest will be painted
blue in a very short time perhaps this
will even up matters a little.
The New York $!ir advises people to

What can there be in the appearance
or aroma of Mr. Oest that people are
aid to flee at his approach? The L'r.lon

The St. Louis Ulobt'Dtmoerat, an
out and out republican iournal, says:
"The typographical errors which have been
found in the new tariff are not half so
discreditable or damaging a the errors
in policy which are in that act." Will
Mr. Oest accept this as good republican
doctrine? He voted for the bill errors
in spelling, errors in justice, and was
only sorry that it bad not more errors
so tbat be couid show bU faith and stick
to the party bosses.
Mr. Gest says the republican party is
not the party of twenty years ago. He
did manage to Lit a fact that time. But
be could have made the statement strong
er by saying it was not the party of thirty
years ago. Twenty years ago the party
was getting pretty rocky to use a Iang
phrase and the best men in it were pre
paring to leave it. It was about this
time that Charles Sumner said that be

The new tariff which went into effect
on Monday last increases the duties on
Bilk and silk manufactures, yet simultas
neously with the increase comes the an
nouncement that a reduction of 10 per
cent in the wages of the ribbon weavers
employed in one of the largest silk ribbon
mills in Paterson, N. J., has been or
dered, and that a 23 per cent reduction in
wages is to be made in another, says the
Dubuque Telegraph. So hither duties,
the statements to the contrary notwith
standing, do not mean higher wages. In
this case they mean lower. The manu
facturer is the sole beneficiary of the
change. His proBts will be increased,

To show that Billy Mason and George
Washington had some points of character
not exactly in unison, it rhould be stated
tbat in Mason's speech at Moline last
night he said the only papers that pub

democratic papers. To show bow this
: truthful James plaved with truth, it may
, be stated that the Rock Island VnUm U
I the only paper in this county tbat has for
i years published such advertisements. In
its report of the speech the Union found
it convenient to leave tbat portion of it

A Plucky 1'or.ult.
New Yoke. Oct, 10. Shortly before
o'clock last evening James M. Dougher
ty, the insane lover of Mary ArHerson
Navarro, entered tha ofli-eof the Kinm
county insane asylum and asked to see
the superintendent. Dr. Fleming. The
assistant superintemlent. Dr. George F.
Lloyd, recognized him as having escaped
from the asylum a fortnight ago and
ought to engnga his attention. Dongh
rty had a lrwte.1 revolver in each hand
and 11 red them almost simultaneously and
Dr. Lloyd fell to the floor and instantly
sxpfred, one bullet lodging in hi throat
and the other entering the head.
On the Hunt for Another Victim.
Dongherty then left the asylum and
Started for the Kings county hospital with
the avowed intention of killing Dr. Ar
nold, one of the snrgeons there, but for
tunately that gentleman was out. From
the latter plai-e his steps were lost until
he was arn-steii at the New York terminus
of the brtilire. as ha was alighting from a
train, and ti k -n to the Oak street station.
His arrest was due to Dr. Kivrin W. Ash
ford, of Washington City, one of the spe

sus of the asylum itl the time of the mur
der. Tbe loctor Camped on His Trail.
As Dougherty passed Dr. Ashford in
tbe hall tne young Wustiiiiiitonian notived
that he was retimrkatiiy cool. He still
held the revolvers in his li.nn Is, and as he
went otit of the ilixir lie warned Dr. Ash
ford to keep bwk. But Dr. Ashford is a
man of nerve, arid, althuiigh un
armed, he determined to follow
Dougherty and have him arrested.
For nearly three-quarters of a
mite he kept less than a block liehind
the murderer on a deserted road. Every
now and then Dougherty would atop,
point his weapon at his plucky pursuer,
and warn him bac k. But he kept right
on when Dougherty resumed his flight,
sticking his pistols in his hip prekets. Tbe
doctor concliideil that the murderer would
return to NVw York, and sent word ahead
by a milkman.
A Farewell Letter to Mrs. Nerarro.
-n the very next train D mglierty came
and was arrested. Hn still had the two
revolvers and in his pockets were a num
ber of manuscripts nml several letters.
One of tbe letters was addressed to "Mrs.
Mary Anderson-Xav,irn," and read:
"Mt MarV: 1 niu-t now bid you good

deeply wronged me, but I understand the
extenuating circumstances and freely

President McCallin, of the Pittsburg

REVISING THE CONFESSION.
Wide Difference of Opinion Developed

PtnP.i i:ii. Pa., Xt. 10. -Yesterday's
metin of the committee on the revision
of the Westminster confession of faith
was devoted to consideration of the third,
fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh chapters.
No formal action has been taken, and it
is not now likely that there will lie a vote
at this meeting of the committee. Tbe
niemliers were permitted to discuss mat
ters fn-ely vesteplay. The opinions ex
pressed dilT-re l as widely as thns? of the
synods they represent. It is feared this
will cam.- con fusion when action is taken.
A' lew. from the Presbyteries.
Expressions on section 3, of article 3.
readiiu; as follows: "By the decree of
tiisl some men an I angels are predestin
ated unto everla-tin-i life, and others fore
ordained to everlasting death," were re
ceived from thirty-e'ght Presbyteries.
Three favored omissions, ten revision,
nine ins-rtions of various kinds, and six
teen the omission of tbe last clause.
When chapter four was reached a num
ber of scientific papers were read asking
for the elimination of the clause stating
that the earth was created in six days.
The opinion seemed to prevail that tbe
six days mentionei in the Bible refers to
six periods of time, and the section will
probably be changed to express that idea.

Otttmwa, la., Oct. 10 The president's
party reached this place at 8 a. m. yester
day, after a goo I night's rest. The city
turned out almost en uiasie to meet him
and the b. om of cannon added volume to
the vociferous charai terofthe greeting. He
was met here by his bro' her, John S. Har
rison, a real estate dealer ia Kansas City,
who will acc unpaiiy him to that place,
and was entertained part of the time while
here by Mr. J. P. Devins, w ho married

thousands from the surrounding coun

cheer that arose as the party appeared
was something to remember. Governor
Boies accompanied the president to the

and felicitous sentences introduced him
to the au lience. which again l.roke into

The president's Keech was quite long
and was frequently cheered. He highly
pmised the ingenuity brought to tbe con
struction of the coal palace and said the
lesson of it was that it showed how much
that is artisiic ami graceful can I found
in the common things of li e. He paid a
tribute to American home life, which ha
said was kinder, more he pful and more
benignant than elsewhere, and added that
the homes were the strength of our
institutions. He congratulated the p-o-ple
of Iowa iioii the prosperity of which
evidences were all around him and re
ferred to the progress in mechanics and
science during the past fifty years, sug
gesting that we are yet but tioii the
threshold of discovery and inventive ge

While in the midst of his speech tbe
president was interrupted by tbe noise of
a fountain, which had been started
through suuie mistake and nearly drowned
his voice. He remarked that be bad
spoken agaiusi a brass hand often, but
had never pitted bis voice against the
roar of Niagara. Hie water having been
turned oft, be went on to aay that it was
tacitly understood that no politics should
tie introduced oti ttiese occasions; "and i

Closing l:veut of the Ier.
The other memliers of tbe party were
then introduced and more speeches made
and then the tour of the palace took
place, the president showing tbe liveliest
interest in the exhibition. He then re
tired to his car, which was sojn sur
rounded by a great throng clamoring for
a t-ceeti. The piesldent responded by
thanking the people for their spontaneous
welcome and saying that sftth greetings
gave hup courage in a world which was
often wearisome and full of worry, aud

Interested and tha Men Determined
on Their Pnrpoae.
New Yoke, Oct. 10. The New York,
I-ake Erie and Western railroad, through
President King, last evening made known,
by means ot a brochure addressed to all
its employes, its reply to tbe demands of
its engineers, conductors, and firemen
and trainmen made some time ago. These
demands numbered eighty-three, and re
lated to a schedule of pay and regulations
to govern the employes of the road. They
came from the federated body of employes
of the system.
Cannot Afford a Balae.
The reply aaya: 'The company is ena
ble to advance wages generally. It does
not expect or desire to pay lens wages for
similar service than those paid upon com
peting and adjacent roads, but, on the
other hand, as it cannot obtain higher
rates for transportation, it cannot afford
to pay rates higher than those of it com
petitors, and the fact is that its present
rates are almost without exception high
er than the average paid by them. In the
few instances where it is not the case the
company will, however, readjust its rates.
The Central Question Again.
'So far as the management of the cor
porate business aud the employment and
discipline of tbe company's officials are
concerned those matters are committed
by law to the wise discretion of the. of
ficers aud directors in office when ques
tions regarding the same may arise. The
interest of all concerned of tbe employes
no less than of all ot hers require that
the law in these respects should be
obeyed. But the officers of the company
will continue in the future, as they have
in the past, to faithfully endeavor to pro
mote the welfare of each and every em
ploye, as well as tbe efficiency of the
The Meat ot Another Matter.
"Of tbe demand tbat ten hours shall con
st itnte a day's work the reply says: '"One
of the articles of the schedule proposes
that ten hours shall constitute a day's
work, and over-time shall be paid for at
tl e rate of one tenth day per hour. While
tl is apparently relates to the length of
time during which employes shall be on
di ty.it is in fact a proposition for in
crease in wages. The proposition is not
to limit continuous hours of work to ten,
but is merely that any time beyond the
limit shall be paid for as extra work.
Rule. Should Work Roth Way..
'The system of pay in force is the trip
system: all runs are computed as a day or
more than a (lay as the division may war
rai.t. It is manifest that many of the reg
ular trains occupy much less than ten
hours. The prosent proposition is that
for every hour in excess of ten occupied
by a run additional wages shall be paid.
But if the runs are to paid for strictly by
the hour it would naturally follow that
fort very hour less than tea, wages would
be correspondingly reducer'. "
It Look. Like n Strike.
A reporter saw Chairman Youngson of
of the emp'oyes' union Inst night and he
did i ot care to make any statement.
"Is it trne that the Erie pays higher
wattes than competing lines?"' was asked.
"No; it pays less."
Vou said some time ago that the men
would insist on their demands?''
If we did not intend to insist on them
they would not have been formulated,"
and Mr. Youngson withdrew. The men
are reported to be in no mood for trifling,
and some of them think that the company
is playing a game of bluff. If there is a
strike it will involve the Federation of
Railway Employes and be a great one.

Says It Is Falsa and Taneott That It
London, Oct. 10. Michael Davitt's pa
per yesterday contained a long article of
the series he announced some time ago,
by which be proposed to prove that the
dynamite outrages in England were con
cocted by the British government for po
litical purposes. In the article referred to
he attacks Mr. Hoare, British consul at Kew
York. He declares that Hoare, in 183,
sent James McDermott from New York
to Montreal for the purpose of getting up
a dynamite agitation in that city, and
supplied him with money and means to
carry out his pnrpoae; that Hoare com
municated with Dublin Castle about the
time that McDermott started and asked
tbe home government to request the Ca
nadian government to facilitate the
performance of the work which McDer
mott was to carry out, and that the Do
minion govern met refused to do so?
The Plnkertons Also Involved.
He charges Hoare with having at the
present moment in his employment Bob
Plnkerton in New York and VY. Pinker
ton in Chicago, who at a costly sum to
the secret service fund, manufactured
any number of secret conspiracies against
England in America. He charges Hoare
with having in 1883 employed one Matt
O'Brien to enter the service of the post
office in New York iu order to tamper
with the letters going through the post
office, and that through Hoare's influence
with a federal postoftice official named
New corn be O'Brien had free access to tbe
O'Brien's Alleged Operations.
Davitt says he can prove that O'Brien
opened letters by tbe score, and wrote let
ters to Irishmen in New York which pur
ported to come from Fenians and dyna
miters in California, St. Louis, and Chi
cago, and that he stamped these bogus
letters so as to make the recipients believe
they were communications which came
through the postoftice. He says ha is pre
pared to prove that tbe beginning and the
end of the Cork, Liverpool, and London
dynamite conspiracies of was James
McDermott, and the money expended by
him for Ihe purchase of nitro-glycerine
was given to him for that purpose from
the secret service fund.
EVERY CHARGE REPUDIATED.
Billy Plnkerton Say. There I. No Truth
In It Hoar and Vnneott.
Chicago, Oct. 10 When Billy Tinker
ton was shown the charges made by
Michael Davitt he read the article care
fully and then said: "It is utterly false
from beginning to end. It is a pure fab
rication so far as we are concerned. We
have never had any connection with this
wing of detective work. We frequently
act for the English government in crim
inal matters such as forgeries and mar
de rs, nnder instructions from Scotland
Yard officials, but in Irish matters, never.
We have never been, are not now and
never will lie connected with these Irish
troubles. I do not know the man Hoare,
said to be British consul at New York.
The w hole thing is a huge falsehood."
A Crasher from Taneott.
New YORK. Oct. 10. Postmaster Yan
cott says of the Michael Davitt charges
that one O'Brien opened letters in the
New York poetoffice in 13, thst such a
thing was impossible. There was a pri
vate detective named Newcombe employed
in the postofSce about the time mentioned
by Davitt, but he had never heard of auy
such charges being brought against him.
He did not remember any such msn as
Con.nl Hoare's Comments.
Consul Hoare characterized the charges
as absurd. He said: "The idea of her
majesty's consuls being concerned in any
thing like an outrage on the British gov
ernment is too absurd for discussion. I
decline to enter into any discussion of
such matters with the Irish editor. As to
this msn McDermott, I have never seen
him, nor have I ever communicated in
any way with the postoftice inspector
Newcombe referred to In this article.
The charge is absurd and without the
RELATIVE OF PETER WILKINST
An Eleetrieal Story That Would Make
Kdfson Weep. Probably.
New Yoke. Oct. 10 Talbot Wilkins,
an amateur farmer of Westchester coun
ty, has recently made some very interest
ing experiments in farming by electrici
ty. Mr. Wilkins took up the subject of
electrical farming with enthusiasm. He
bought a small battery and before he
planted his onions he gave every onion an
electric shock. His radish seexl. Tom
Thnmb peas, butter beans, Hubbard
squash, turnips and cabbages were treat
ed in the same way. The result was that
his garden was green and growing a
month before anybody else's garden was
Wilkin. Is Too Modest.
The particular pride of Mr. Wilkins'
garden was the cabbage. He used to take
his visitors out to walk around the largest
cabbage in his garden and admire it. It
was about as large as a small stack of
hay. and crisp and tender. Mr. Wilkins
refuses to make any public statements
yet about his experiments in growing
crops by electricity, and remains very reU
icent about it. But it is understood that
the experiment on his little farm has been
very successful, and that many of the
amateur farmers of Westchester county
are going to raise their crops by elec
tricity. Wouldn't Admit Evidence.
TlPPERART, Oct 10. The case of Har
rison against the police for assault at tbe
opening of the Dillon-O'Brien trial was
begun and ended yesterday. The testi
many against the police was direct and
the witnesses swore tbat there was no
reason for the officers to use their batons,
that tbey outnumbered the civilians, who
were perfectly peaceable. Healy then
called for some photographs of the fracas,
but tbe judges refused to admit them as
evidence and Healy then withdrew the
cases and left the court room.
THE BANISHED GRENADIERS.
A Report That They are In Bad Health
Tba Uoeea'e Solicitude.
London, Oct. 10. Much sympathy is
aroused in London by tbe published state
ment from Bermuda that the aecoud bat
talion of the Grenadier guards, who were
exiled to that island for insubordination,
are being ravaged by disease. Tbey were
great favorites with the public, and
considerable indignation is expressed
against tbe government for failing to
properly protect tbe health of one of the
finest battalions in the British army. Tbe
government has no confirmation of the
Victoria Makea Iaonlriea.
The queen is much disturbed by the
reports of fatal illness among the grena
dier guards at Bermuda. She sent her
private secretary. Sir H. F. Ponaonby, to
the foreign office twice yesterday to de
mand the latest uews on the subject. Up
to last evening, however. Lord Salisbury
had received nothing from tbe island.
