An idea of tbe profits in electricity is
afforded by tbe statement that tbe Thomson-Houston
company for the first nine
months of the fiscal year shows an in

228 805. Its profits for this period over
expenses were f 1.631.715. an Increase of
f 850,452. The company's net profits for
1889 were over $2,500,000 The trN
cities will, in the future, contribute Its
share to these handsome profits through
the medium of tbe Holmes syndicate.
The Rock Island L'nUm saya that tbe
defeat of Congressman Jest in tbe dis
trict across tbe river was not due to sore
beaded ness but that be happened to ran
for office In a year when republicans
made "full grown fools of themselves.
Tbe Rock Island TTnion Is the only paper.
so far as we know, that has sbown the
disposition to get along without tbe help
of tbe same "full grown fools. Its ex
hibition of spleen is not likely to be re
peated, for some of the managers will
call around aud tell tbe editor that flies

The Washington Evening Critic is tbe
authority for tbe stitement that Mrs.
Senator Stanford, of California, hat be

and will soon enter Into the communion
of that church, having been converted by
Mies Helena McUarty. an anient catholic
and sister of Senator Stanford's private
secretary. If the repoit shall prove true
It will be a very great surprise to tbe
Methodist denomination of this country.

statistics, mhlch cover ten states and ter

track laid since January 1, 1890, and there
are now 8.617 miles under construction;
8,020 miles under survey, and 4.077 miles
projected for future construction. Tbe
greater part of the active work Is con
fined to the states of Washington, Mon

by the Northern Pacific, Great Northern

Shortly after the election the Moline
Ditpateh published an item to tbe effect
that Hon. B. T. Cable bad sent Mr. Chas.
A. Creutx,of Moline, the defea'ed demo
cratic candidate for county clerk, a check
for 950. The same paper subsequently
denied its former statement with a covert
Innuendo regard ing Mr. Cable's generob'ty,
With their ususl partiality tbe republican
papers of tbe district, copied tbe denial,
but not tbe original paragraph, thus seek
Ing to create the impression that Mr. Cable
Is not actuated by auch good motives as

therefore, tbe Arods wishes to state that
Mr. Cable did, unsolicited, send Mr.

Vote on First Kadinf l"urther Speea
latlon an the Parnll Case No Sign
That the Irish leader Will Retire Ob
the Contrary He Proposes to Stay with
Them Riht Along.
Loxdox, Nor. 88. In the honse of com
mons yesterday Balfour introduced the Ir
ish land purchase bill. In explaining the
oueasnre, be said tbat tbe Kovemmeut's
policy was tlie same as in 1889, but for the
sake of simplicity the bill bad been cut tn
halves. Both portions, taken together,
presented practically tb- same measure as
hat of 1SW. One variV on which had been
made met in some degree the views of Par
sell. He had suggested that the privileges
M purvlwse be confined to tenants of hold
ings under 30 valuation. Though Bal
four could uot accept exactly that limita
tion, he had altered the scope of the bill by
ixcluding all purely grazing farms and
tarnis on which the tenant did not reside.
The Limit of Purchase Dropped.
Another change was one in reference to
the objection taken at the last session to
the limit of twenty years purchase then
proposed. That limit did not appear in
the new bill. Cries of 'Hear," Hear."
The power would also be given the viceroy
f Ireland to extend the period of five years
during which 8 per cent of the purchase
money was payable. In regard to an in
crease of the powers of the local authori
ties. - Balfour said the land question was
largely used for political objects, and It
would therefore lie absurd to leave it to
the locnl communities, under the incite
ment of agitators, to determine whether
they should adopt a remedy going to the
root of agrarian discontent.
Liberal Leaders Fail to Tote.
Labouchere moved an amendment
aiminst pledging the imperial credit for
the purchase of land nntil the country
gives its consent at a general election. Tbe
amendment was rejected ar to 117.
tilndstone, Morley, and llarcourt walked
out of the house before the division. Par
nell and all tbe Parnellite members voted
with the government. The bill was then
read the first time.
fteem to Have been Paralyzed.
The ease with which the land bill was
put through Us preliminary stages was a
surprise, in view of the stubborn
resistance made " to it at every
stage on former occasions. Tbe gov
ernment leaders are jubilant over
the series of accidents, lucky for them
but disastrous to others, which has weak
ened the opposition, and they are making
all the bay they can while the sun shines.
The attitude of the two great parties has
been completely changed, by the recent
happeniugs. The Liberals, who, under the
leadership of Gladstone and Morley, were
prepared for an active assault upon the
government, seem paralyzed, and tbe To
ries, instead of being on tbe defensive, are
aggressive and triumphant.
PARN ELL'S SOLID PHALANX.
He Has Fifty Loyal Betalnera in the Na
London, Nov. 28l An analysis of the
vote in the various meetings of thePar
nellites on the question of Parnell's reten
tion of the leadership, shows that the
most eminent members of tbe parliament
ary group fnvor Parnell's retirement,
while the fifty men who were iusistent in
seasou and out of season upon bis remain
ing at the head of affairs in spite of every
thing, were those of comparatively minor
ability or individual influence. This solid
phalanx of half a hundred was made up of
men who are most dependent upon the sal
aries which Parnell has it in his power to
distribute, by virtue of bis undisputed
privilege of naming the parliamentary
candidates in the various Irish districts.
Put Them Through an Ordeal.
It Is learned tbat Parnell put the direct
question to every man in the room: "Are
you going to desert nie" The ordeal was
s ditlicult one for these dependeut mem
bers to withstand. Still, it is believed that
ii O'Brien and Dillon come out flatly in
favor of Parnell's retirement there will be
found enough waverers in the ranks of the
faithful to ninke up a majority against
Parnell's continuance in ollice. It is ex
pected that Parnell will announce his final
determination in regard to retaining the
the leadership as soon as he bears from
O'Brieu in response to'the cabled inquiry
for his advice.
Healy and Parnell Confer.
London, Nov. 28. Timothy Healy aud
Parnell were in conference together in t be li
brary of t he house of commons for some time
yesterduy. The feeling among tbe Nation
alists seems to have become more favora
ble to Parnell since Wednesday. The opin
ion prevails tbat at Monday's meeting of
the party Parnell will be sustained. Healy
is reticent as to the purport of his confer
ence with Parnell. Parnell seems to have
regained his good spirits, and displays
buoyancy and excellent health. It is de
clared that If Parnell remains in office Sex
ton and-tbe other Irish members who fa
vored bis retirement will apply for the
Chiltern Hundreds, in order to seek re
flection and test the feeling of the Irish
Davltt Still Pounding Away.
London, Nov. as. Michel Davitt's paper,
The Labor World, publishes an appeal to
the Irish race at home aud abroad, in
which Davitt implores them to arise and
show themselves equal to the present
emergency. He says there Is no hope if
Parnell remains as the leader of the Na
tionalist party that Ireland's cause will be
saved. He declares that the Irish party
contains more than one man capable of
leading it to victory and that there is suf
ficient patriotism therein to follow a
leader chosen from its own ranks by a
majority of its members. Nevertheless,
Davitt usserts that whatever decision is
taken at tbe Monday adjourned meeting
f the Nationalists the Irish cause as im
perishable. Determined to Kenuln in OrP.ce.
London, Nov. 28. The Pre a Association
states that Parnell considers himself most
unfairly treated by some of bis colleagues
who practically owe their positions to
bini, and he also feels strongly in regard
to Gladstone's attitude. He is more de-'
termined than ever to remain in ofUce.
The Erie Railway and Its Men.
NEW YORK, Nov. 2a The trouble be
tween the Erie Railroad company and its
employes has been satisfactorily settled. A
committee representing the firemen had a
conference with General Manager Thomas
Wednesday and a settlement was made
with them on the same basis as that made
with the engineers and trainmen. Every
body interested seems to be satisfied with

morning: "The Irish members in this
country will meet in the Burnet house
here to-morrow. I have no answer from
my cablegram to England as yet. I can

they would be glad to see the alliance with
the Liberal, broken, so that the Irish party
could become independent again.

who has been In the southern prison since
1871, ate his Thanksgiving dinner a free
man. Governor Horey having pardoned
him Wednesday. There Is little doubt in
the mind of the executive that Bailey is an
innocentman, and the pardon is given un
der this conviction. Bailey lived in Dear
born county, and one day, while nnder the
influence of liquor, he and McDonald
Clark took a buggy ride together. On the
way they met Thomas Harrison, Clark's
father-in-law, with whom Clark was not

Clark left the buggy, and, following
Harrison a short distance, killed him.
Both were arrested and Clark was sen
tenced to be banged, but got a new trial
aud was sentenced to imprisonment for
life and shortly after Bailey was similarly
sentenced. Clark has alwaya contended
that Bailey had no band In the murder and
wrote to Governor Hovey protesting
against the continued punishment of an
innocent man. His statement made such
a strong impression 00 the executive that
Bailey's pardon resulted.

is dead. Several years ago Mr. Dunn died
that is, he was declared dead by the doc
tors. His body was placed In the coffin,
and the burial rite was being performed,
when to the horror of those present mani
festations of life were exhibited. The cof
fin was quickly opened, and Mr. Dunn was
found to be alive. The story of his ex

conscious of all that went on about him
while he lay apparently dead.

since and begged that his body be held till
death was absolutely demonstrated.

A Man Who Knows the Hions.
Dr. V. T. Magillcuddy, formerly agent
here and the best posted man on Sioux
character in America, is at tbe agency
now. Asked what he thought about tbe
situation, tbe doctor predicted an after
clap in the shape of an investigation that
would determine the responsibility for tbe
scare. He indulged in some severe strict
ures on the Indian bureau's policy. The
present trouble arose, first, because the dis
cipline at the agency had been relaxed;
second, because tbe Indians were not prop
erly fed, and partly because the Messiah
craze was a good excuse for a demonstra
tion in the Interest of righting tbe many
wrongs under wnicn tne Indian labors. ,
A Good Word for Little Wound.
Concerning LKtle Wound, of whom so
much has been said, Dr. Magilicuddy said

New York, Nov. 2H. The new open
stand in Eastern park, Brooklyn, waa
crowded with men. women and young
girls yesterday to witness the Yale-Prince
ton foot ball match, when tbe whole north
end gave way with a terrific crash and
roar, carrying the rest of the stand with It
instantly, and with a noise that Bounded
like thunder. The cries of the men and
the ahrieks of the women were wholly
drowned by the crash, and the other spec
tators spranK to their feet with shoot of
fear and horror. When tbe wreck lay st ill
the crowd rushed in to rescue those im
prisoned nnder the rafters and for over
half hour the unfortunates were being lift
ed out and carried away.
None Killed but Many Hart.
No one was killed, which was nothing
more than miraculous, but any number of
women and young girls were carried out
fainting. The worst hurt were as follows:
J. S. G. Dunning, Princeton fti, foot
broken at tbe instep: John Weed, of Yale,
injured internally; Stephen P. Spear, of
Yale, arm broken; Curley, Princeton 1H,
injuries serious: Mr. Leonard, of New York

had her foot crushed. The lowest estimate)
puts the number of those who are hnrt at
fifty. This does not take account of those
who were merely bruised, but in
cludes those who bad limbs broken and
who were wmnded internally. The acci
dent stopped the born-blowing and cheers
for three-quarters of an hour, bnt the foot
ball game was called at 2 p. m., and tbe
crowd recovered its spirits.
