Miscellaneous Foreign News.
London, Oct. SI. The presa comments
at great length upon the plan outlined by
Salvation Army Gan. Booth, in his book,
"Darkest Enidand an 1 the Way Out of
It," for tbe relief of tbe miserable poor of
England. The opinion is generally favor
able to a trial of the scheme. The least
enrnnraeing article on the subject is that
of The Times, and even this is only mild
ly in opposition. Tbe book has made
profound Impression upon all classes, and
to nm ny it ia a revelation of a condition
of affairs undreamed of by them.
Kyuopsls of Booth's Plan.
No one can r ad the work without feel
ing an uncomfortable sense of impending
dwnttr. and it is perhaps this which leads
nearly every one to cry out to Gen. Booth,
in eilect, "uo ahead aud try your plan.
and we will do all we can to help you."
ine suggest inn of the author is, lu brief.
the establishment of houRes of refuge all
over the kingdom, and tbe organization
of volunteer bands to seek ont and rescue
tbe unfortunate, and minister to their
minds and bodies until employment is
found. There are many ingenious details
in the scheme, which conld only have been
devised by a man thoroughly experienced
In tbe needs of the poor, and whose whole
heart was in the cause.
Soma of the Details.
Booth proposes to employ $500,000 to
start the project, to provide the "homes"
and houses of relief all over the kingdom
which form part of his scheme, etc.. and
to use the remainder ot the $5,000,000
which he is trying to raise as a perma
nent endowment fund, which shall real
ize $150,000 annually, to he expended in
carrying out the various divisions
of bis labor. Iu addition to bis
rescue work" on farms, etc.. for out
casts, whom be estimates to constitute a
full tenth of the population, and whom
he calls the "submerged tenth," Booth
proposes, from the rauks of the unem
ployed, to form a "household stlvage

which shall undertake a house-to-house
collection throughout London of broken

MORLEY'S REPLY TO BALFOUR.
The ftrest Liberal Hurls Rack the Charge
I.OSDOS, Oct. SL John Moley spoke at
Newcastle last night and rerliel to Bal
four's recent attacks upon him. He said
that Balfour's arguments were mainly of
the tu quoque kind, and were full of mis
representations and irrelevant statements.
Tbe statement that he (Morley) bad spent
only five daj-s in Ireland during his term
as chief secretary of Ireland would not
have beeu a bad joke if true, but as a
matter of fact it was absolutely untrue.
He denied that he was prejudiced against
the police. Balfour himself bad recently
done bim the justice to say that he had
never said a word auainst them.
The Trouble at Tipperary.
He reiterated his statement that tbe
police had used excessive force at Tipper
ary. It was not the bo lily injury
which, as Balfour had said, could be
mended by a little sticking-plaster but
It was tbe sting and insult of the treat
ment that inflamed the people. He de
clined to reply to Balfour's invitation to
express an opinion as to the innocence or
guilt of the Tipperary prisoners. He
would form no decision on any person's
guilt until the accused bad had a fair
trial before julge and jury as was cus
tomary in England.
Specially Aimed at Uncle Sam.
Paris, Oct. 21. In tbe chamber of dep
uties, which reconvened yesterday, one of
the first measures introduced was a new
tariff bill. It provides far a maximum
rate of duties applicable to goods from na
tions not conceding commercial advan
tages to Franco, and a miuimnm rate to
be reserved for countries consenting to
oustoma regulations beneficial to French
trade. Agricultural products figuring ex
clusively in the maximum tariff will not
be considered in any arrangement maie
with other nations.
Reducing the Home Rule Vote.
London. Oct. 81. The Conservatives
have succeeded in having several thou
sand names stricken from tbe voting lists
of Cork, thus disfranchising nearly the
same number of Liberals. This is a sav
age blow at Parnell, who is one of the
city's representatives in parliament. It
is apprehended in Home Rule circles that
the same plan will be tried in other sec
tions of Ireland with a view to getting
rid of opposition majorities.
Italy Inspecting the Convents.
Loxdos, Oct. 21. The Italian govern
ment is causing an inspection to be made

startling discoveries have been made, al
though iu some instances the health of
the inmates is injuriously affected by their
severe mode of life.

A Young Woman Jumps Into the Biver
But Repents Her Rashness.
Xkw York. Oct. 2L "God help trie!"
was the despinng cry of a poorly dre-sed
but very pretty young woman, as she
leaped into the dark waters of the P-ast
river at the foot of Twenty-third street
Sunday nigh'. She had been seen to walk
slowly down the pier a few minutes be
fore, and stxnd in shuddering ciniemi la

took the awful plunge. William Btirnsund
George P. Phurl, saw her jump, and as she
arose ga-pmg to the surface, held out a
long boat hook, which sheeagerly grasi ed
witb both hands and held until sbe as

She was then in an exhausted ronditi n
and was taken to Bellevue hospital,
where she was pronounced a victim of
melancholia. She told tbe surgeons that

for seversl days sbe had been without
home or food. Further than this sl e
would say nothiug. The men whores-
cued her say that about two weeks aio
she came to the pier one evening and,
after gazing at the water for sevarsi min

laid upon the fact that 1H0 of the dea'lis

that the remainder of tbe accidents ..-ere

disposed of by the navy department.
These are the Thomas submerged moni
tor and the dyuamite cruiser. The Thom
as vessel, it is thought, will never be
built, though congress appropriated
600,000 for its construction. No plans or
specifications for it have been prepared;
in fart, the navy department has taken
no steps toward constructing the vessnl,
and as it is left discretionary vrith the de

ment amounts almost to conviction that
nothing will be done with it and that the
whole matter will be pigeon-holed.

Port Huron, Mich , . Oct 21. The
steamer Annie Young, of the Lake Supe
rior Transit company, took fira and
burned to tbe water's edge, off Lexing
ton, at 0 o'clock yesterday morning. The
steamer Ed Smith went to tbe rescue,
and took thirteen of the crew off and
brought them here, Tbe latter bore
down on the burning vessel from the wind
ward, and, despite the heavy sea and
wind, ran so close that the endangered
sailors were enabled to leap over ber
rail and escape from what had seemed cer
The Flames Discovers!.
The Aunie Young passed out of the St.
Clair river into Lake Hurcn shortly after
7 o'clock. The wind was blowing a rat
tling gale from tbe northward, a heavy
sea was running, and once she got beyond
tbe (shelter of the point she made little or
no headway. At 9 o'clock, just as sbe was
abreast of Lexingtou lighthouse, smoke
was seen issuing from the main batch.
The hatch cover was promptly removed,
tbe crew sent to fire quarters, and every
preparation made to extinguish the
flames, bnt the latter had gained such
headway in the highly inflammable cargo
that it was impossible to check them.
Tbey ran aft through the engine and
boiler rooms, through the cabin and of
ficers' quarters, and in less than five min
utes the entire fantail was ablaze.
The Sails and Kigging A fire.
Once her engines were stopped she fell
off into tbe trough of the sea, where she
rolled and plnnged in a way that threat
ened to send her to the bottom. Sea after
sea swept over her decks; tons of water
poured into the open batches, bnt the
fire seemed to burn more fiercely than
ever. As it approached tbe foremast,
driven on by tbe gale, it ignited a lot of
oil barrels stowed on the main deck.
Flames shot up through the hatches, set
fire to tbe sails and rigging and even
threatened the boats that were swinging
from tbe davits.
Kxploding Oil Barrels.
It was plain to Capt Miller that the ves
sel was doomed, and this conviction was
emphasized when barrel after barrel of
tbe blazing oil exploded with such force
as to tear the deck planks from under the
feet of his men. The fire spread all
through the hold with the rapidity of
lightning. 1 lunies shot out of the fore
castle batch and enveloped everything
about it. When the dauger to tbe boat
first became apparent Capt. Miller or
dered the starlward boat vleared away
and lowered. This was done In a jiffy,
and ni-e men took their places in it be
fore the falis were cast adrift. They
pushed away from the burning vessel,
manned their oars, aud made a gallant at
tempt to briug the frail craft head to
Loss of the Boat's Crew.
inst as they were rounding to under
the Young's quarter a terrific sea caught
the boat and seemingly lifting H clear
out of the water, threw it end over end.
In a moment nine men were struggling
with the waves for their lives. One poor
fellow reached tl.e capsized boat and was
working with an energy born of despair
to get astride of the keel, when be was
torn away by another sea and sent to tha
bottom. The catastrophe to the lost
happened in full view of Capt. Miller aud
the twelve brave fellows who remained
with him aboard of tbe burning vessel.
They watched tbe drowning men go down
one by one, all the time shouting words
of enToursgement to those who were try
ing tosaim to tbe doomed vessel, and
so intense were their interest in the scene
that they momentarily forgot their own
In Terrible Peril.
They were brought to a full realization
of their peril, however, when they felt
the scorching beat of the fire, which was
rapidly sweeping down on them from
every side. Then tbey began to retreat to
tbe bows. They could not reach the only
remaining lifeboat, for it was already
ablaze, and n barrier of fire flashed in their
way. It looked as if they must ail share
the fate of the poor fellows who went off
iu the first boat, for inch by inch the fire
drove them forward until they were all
huddled together in the forepeak. They
did not know rescue was so near at band
until they beard the cheery shout of the
A Fearfully Close Call.
Just as the two barges came together
Capt.Mtller'scoatcaugbtflre. Tbe clothes
of other officers were also bnrning, and all
bands were suffering so fearfully from
the beat that they were about ready to
follow tbe boat's crew. As tbe vessels
came together with a crash, however, and
they saw through tbe blinding smoke and
fierce heat the towering spars of the
Smith, they jumped for the rail like ti
gers, and scrambled over to the deck of
tbe rescuing vessel. To get the latter
beyond tbe reach of the flames required
but a turn of the wheel, and the Annie
Young was left to burn and sink.
Names of the Drowned.
Of tbe nine men drowned Capt. Miller
was aide tu furnish the names of but five,
as follows: George McManus, Port Hu

COLUMBUS. O., 31. The bouse of repre
sentatives was only in srstion long
enough yesterday afternoon to insult
Governor CampbelL Tbe house was
called to order at 4 p. m. and reading of
the journal immediately proceeded with.
During this reading Claude Meeker, the
governor's private secretary, entered and
took the usual position of the bearer of a
message in the center aisle, carrying a
document in his hand. It was already
known by the members that the docu
ment which Meeker carried was a mes
sage, and ita purport was generally un
derstood. Communication Broken Oft.
Speaker Hysell would not recognize
Meeker, and at once, upon the conclusion
of the reading of the journal, Geyer (Dem
ocrat) moved to adjourn to 10 v-m. to
day. Another Democrat promptly made
a second, and the house adjourned with
the governor's messenger rtauding on the
floor waiting for recognition. Governor
Campbell feels the insnlt deeply, and de
clares that ha will hold no further com
munication with the legislature unless
they send a committee to him.
Leading Democrats have been very
guarded in their conversation regarding
the special session, bnt they all. without
reserve, condemn this apparently studied
insnlt to the chief executive. The new
reeommendatian of Governor Campbell
(which is to let Mayor Mushy appoint two
Democrats and two Republicans on the
board until the April election) is not
likely to be received by tbe Democrats
with any better welcome than tbe first.
"We v. ill never vote to give the power of
appointing a controlling board of Cincin
nati, even if it is to be non-partisan, to
Mayor Mosby. He is a bosom friend of
ex-Governor Foraker, and we might as
well let Foraker appoint the board and be
done with it as to give the power to
Mot-by, said one democrats.
Campbell la Only Disgusted.
Cincinnati, Oct. 21. The report that
Governor Campbell will retire from the
gubernatorial office is denied by that gen
tleman over his own signature. The fol
lowing telegram was received yesterday
morning: "Keplying to you inquiry just
received, I may say that the telegram to
which y.iu refer is absurd. I am not dis
couraged, though somewhat disgvsted. I
am positive of legislation in strict con
formity to mv wishes. My only regret is
that it has been so slow in passing.
