Washington Citt. Oct 3T. Sir Julian.
Panncefote has retarded to Washington,
and on Secretary Blaine's return Thurs
day will renew the negotiations concern
ing the Behring sea controversy. Sir
Julian said yesterday: "I shall renew to
Mr. Blaine my proposition for arbitration,
for that is the only sure remedy for the
existing condition of affairs. Despite the
fact that the articles for a convention
looking to this end were not acted upon
last April, when I presented them, it
speaks well for Secretary Blaine and the
people of the United States that no acta
of hostility were perpetrated during the
sealing aeaaon juat closed.
Blaine Doing a Lot or Thinking.
"There has, however, been no change in
the negotiations since Lord Salisbury
submitter) the proposition for arbitration
to Mr. Blaine, to which, by the way, the
latter has thas far vouchsafed no reply.
Slill, it ia an important matter, and I
presume the secretary of state desires to
consider it very fully and in all its bear
ings before making any recommendation.
From the commencement the sole object
of investigation has been the preservation
of the fur seal species for thebeneBtof
mankind, and no considerations of ad
vantage to any particular nation or of
benefit to any private iuterest should en
ter into the question.
To Save tha Seals.
"Hence there ia an urgent necessity for
a mixed commission of experts, which
should be allowed at least two year in
which to make a thorough investigation
of this question, and submit the result of
that finding to the governments inter
ested as speedily af possible. Pending the
result of such an inquiry it is improbable
that any appreciable diminution of the
fur seal species would take place. But in
order to quiet all apprehension on that
score I propose the following provincial
1. That pclruric sealing be prohibited In the
Behrinit Sea. Sea of Avhotsk, and adjoining
waters dtiriiuc the uioDths of May and June,
and during the mouths of October. November,
and December, the miicration periods of the
- All sealinic vessels be prohibited from a,
prosrliitiK the breeding inlands within a radius
of ten mile.
I Ready to Dlacn Matter.
"If these suKKestion are accepted by her
majesty's government, it would certainly
manifest a friendly desire to co-operate
with the United Slates government and
that of Russia in the protection of the sea
rookeries and the prevention of any vio
lation of the laws These proposals have
been framed in the spirit of justice and
conciliation, and with an earnest desire
to terminate this controversy In a manner
honorable to all parties and worthy of
the great n.itions concerned. Now. if Sec
retary Blaine desires to discuss the mat
ter with me on this plane, there will
Bhortly be an end to the Behriug's sea
fisheries trouble "

PlTTSBL'KO, Pa.. Oct 27. Sanator Sher
man addrexsed the Republicans 'if this
city Saturday night. He of coo -sa dis
cussed the tariff, the new house rules.
Speaker Reed's coure (which he varmly
endorsed), and all the other iss tes to
which the mind of the nation i. now
turned. But the feature of hia apee .-h was
what hs said of appointmenta to office.
Opening on this subject, he ren arkod
that in 18S8the people of the roootrr gave
to the Republican party the politual au
thority of the nation, among the privit
leges goin therewith being the power to
appoint to office.
A Weakness to Any Party.
Continuing, he sai l: "That powe in
stead of being strength to any party, la a
weakness to any party, and upon that
basis nearly all the pubic men who fall
in public life by the wayside fall by the
exercise of patronage. ' I say to you now,
if I had the power, I would not all w a
member of congress to recommend any
man for any oftice whatever. Cheers. I
would take from your political agents
all the power that ia invested iu them by
common custom not by law. I would
take from them all that power, md I
would not eveu allow a member of con
gress to reconi mend postmaster!, because
it is an element of weaknesa: it weaena
the member of the house and the senate,
and it makes a cause of constant tro able
and quarrel, and I think the time will
come, and the Republican party will be
the agent in that great reform, when a
law will be passed separating enti-ely
the appointing power from the lawniak
THE OTHER WAY THIS TIME,
Playing Shottleeoek with the Iowa Pro
Dks Moisks. Ia-.Oct 27. Judge Shiran,
of the United States district court, Sat ar
day made an important ruling involving
the Iowa prohibitory law. The matter
came up on a petition for liabe is corpus
in which K K Spickler was plaintiff.
Spickler was adjudged guilty of con ten pt
of couit in Carroll county on Sept 12 or
selling I quor in original packages
and imprisoned for the same. In
applying for a writ of habeas corpus
his counsel set up the plea thnt he wis
not violatiug the Iowa law. as, in so far as
it applies to original package, it ia inop
erative under the Wilson bill. .Iudk;e
Shiras iu hia opinion held that the Wilx. 11
bill ia inoperative, and thnt the laws of
Iowa clearly prohibit the sale of liquor in
original packages, and therefore deuiid
the application for a writ ot habeas cn--pu,

The Fire Jump HOO Feet.
From the shingle mill to Ujodmau's
warehouse, on the block bounded by
Front, Beauregard, Water and Lipscomb
street, the distance is about ro yards,
and almost as soon as smoke was seen
issuing from the roof the cotton blazed
np. In Goodman's there was stored about
900 bales of cotton. When Goodman's
warehouse was in a blazs smoke was sen

mem the Gulf City oil mill on the east
side of Commerce, between Adams and
Lipscomb streets, with warehouse, which
waa stored full of cotton oil, oil cake and
meal blazed out.
Firemen Driven Away.
The firemen and the lar;e crowd of
spectators which bad gathered in the vi
cinity had to flee from the advancing
flames. There was now no stop to the
flames except by a dispensation of Provi
dence. Almost immediately the flames
spread from building to building, until
Gage & Lyon's artificial ice factory on
Commerce and St Anthony streets, and
the Merchants' Press were destroyed.
The prop.-rty descroyoi U 5,63

There has been no casualty reported.
The wind died away about 5 p. m., and
the fire department got the fire under

factory exp'oded it seemed to stay the
progress of the flames to the south ward.

THE DISTRESS IN IRELAND.
Roman Catholic Prel.ite Want Heed Po
tatoes Distributed at One.
London, Oct 27. A pastoral letter has
been issued by the Roman Cathidic bish
ops of Ireland on the condition of the
country as the result of the failure of the
potato crop. The letter declares that if
the crisis ia not dealt with immediately
and effectively the results will be fatat
and far-reaching in the future. The gov
ernment, the letter continues, should pro
vide for the procurement of potato seed
for the coming season, aud no delay should
be made in arranging for Its distribution.
It denounces the attempt of government
officials to make it appear that the grav
ity of the situation i greatly exaggerated,
and on the other hand condemns the plan
of campaign as putting a weapon into the
hands of the government The letter is
signed by all the prelates in Ireland.

body down if be is not careful. See what
a grip he has on the reins."
That was the observation made by a
bystander at the Lewis Avenue Congre
gational church of Brooklyn at noon yes
terday. Hia attention had been attracted
to a buggy which was going down the
avenue at a high rate of speed. Many
others noticed the vehicle also. There
were several hundred people on the av

were on I heir way to the Sunday schools.
There was imminent dangerthat some

A White-Halred Driver.
In the buggy sat a man with white hair
and beard. lie seemed to be totally un
mindful of the unlawful gait which he
waa drfving. The spirited bay horse with
Its neck arched and was drawing tight
npon the reins. The driver sat bolt up

before him. He clutched the reins aa
though he was exerting his strength to
hold the animal in, and there was some
thing very like a grim smile upon Lis
"Come, drive slower," yelled a police
man who stood on the corner of Monroe
street. He ran into the roadway and tried
to seize the horse, but made a miss.
A Corpse Held the Rein.
There was something iu the appearance
of the driver's face that sent a shiver
through the bluecoat's frame. The ashy
whiteness of his face and his wide staring
eyes were such as are seen only in a

as the buggy passed him. He started in

There w as great excitement on the ave

The jar caused the old man to topple
over sideways. His head struck one of
the wheels, and a si renin of blood flowed
upon the cobblestones. Then it was seen
that the oocupHiitof the buggy was in

to get the reins from the death grip. He
proved to be Gilbert De Revere, a wealthy

years of age. and had been subject for six
or seven years to heart disease. It had
been his custom to take daily drives to

Chicago, Oct 27. Pretty Frances
Dncbak had a terrible experience yester
day. She was assaulted and knocked
down by aa unknown man, successfully
resisted him, and was then thrown on the
track just as an express train came thun
dering along. Her younger sister pulled
her almost from under the wheels and
saved her life. The girl, who is 17 years
old, lives at Stewart avenue and Eighty
seventh street About 9 o'clock yester
day morning she was walking home from
church. She was accompanied by a
younger sister. At the corner ot Wright
and Seventy-ninth streets, an unknown
man seised her around the waist and
threw her violently to the ground.
Fought Bravely for Her Honor.
The girl Is as plucky as she is pretty
and fought desperately for her honor.
She regained her feet and dug her deli
cate nails Into the scoundrel's face. Like
the brute that he was, he knocked her
down. The younger sister now directed
the assailant's attention and her sister
again struggled to her feet The assault
happened near the railroad track. An
inward-bound paisener train was ap
proaching at a high rate of speed. The
engineer and fireman saw the man and
woman struggling by the side of the
track. It was a dramatic scene.
A Devilish Determination.
It came near being a tragedy, though,
and for a second the hearts ot the engine
men leaped Into their mouths. Knowing
that he conld not accomplish hia nefari
ous design, and fearing that the train
would be stopped and the girl rescued,
tbe wretch attempted to add murder to
the dastardly crime of assault He again
seized tbe girl by the waist, and, stifling
ber screams by placing his rough hand
over her mouth, hissed in her ear, "I am
going to kill you. The wheels will grind
you piece." A look of terror crept into
the girl's eyes and she fought like a ti
gress to break away from the villain's
Faved by a Heroic Sister.
When the train waa only a few rods
away he violently threw the girl into tbe
narrow space that separates the two shin
ing rails, ami ran away. Miss Ducbak
struck on her side, and death teemed cer
tain. Then, at the rick of her own life,
the young sister heroically rushed upon
the track and fairly dragged Frances from
under the wheels of the snorting locomo
tive. The train whirled by, and tbe young
girl, more dead than alive, tottered home
end told her story. Tbe police were noti
fied, but the unknown scoundrel made
good his escape.
BEATEN MOST BRUTALLY.
A Boone, la.. Widow Assaulted hjr Some
Boone. Ia, Oct 27. Mrs. Signs, a well-to-do
widow of this city, was attacked at
5:30 Saturday morning In ber room by
some one unknown, and beaten almost
into unconsciousness with a gun barrel.
In her efforts to escape she , crawled out
on a porch roof, where she was found by
neighbors, with ber head almost beaten
to a jelly and one band split the whole
length by tbe force ot a blow. The only
other occupant of tbe house at tbe time
was Austin Signs, a nephew, who had
been adopted. He says that he was awak
ened by his aunt's screams only in time
to see her assailants run through tbe
room and down-etairs.
Chance Against Her Recovery.
The attending physicians say the chances
are against her, though there is hope of
recovery. There are sixteen distinct blows
on her head made by the heavy gun bar
rel. Tbe physicians do not discover any
fracture ot the sknlL but fear tha shock
will prove fatal. . She is a strong, healthy
woman. In the prime ot life, or she would
hsve succumbed before Ithis. She par
tially recovered consciousness for a time
Saturday afternoon, and County Attor
ney O. M. Brockett took her statement,
but she was too dazed to tell an intelli
gent storv. All that could be learned
from her is that her assailant was a short,
stout man. Young Signs was examined,
but there is nothing to incriminate him,
and the affair so far is a complete mys
tery, as no robbery waa committed.

what she could tell It was understood
that she bad been kept in slavery on A
large farm a few miles from New York,
and had been subjected to an awful
course of treatment, being whipped for
every trivial offense.

They were given a rope and told to tie
"Professor'' Johnson up is seventeen dif
ferent ways if tbey could, and the spirits
would release him iu full view of the au
dieuee. One member of tbe committee
said that seventeen was just his limit,
and he turned up the gas to its lull bent,
much to the dismay of "Professor" John
son. Then be tied "Professor" Jobnsoa
in such s business like way that he col
lapsed. Walking to the footlights be
said: "Indies and gentlemen, I dou't want
to get into trouble so I'll jest state that I
aint Prof. Johnson and I aint got sothing
to do with spirits. I am a sleight-of-hand
performer and this man hired me to eome
out here and do some tricks"
The Aodienre Felt Hart.
In a minute the audience was a bowl
ing mob. They rushed on the stags,
