London", Miirch 10. Mrs. E. Jackson
cm leaving the church at Ciitheroe, near
Manchester, Sunday, when thres men
jumped out of a carriage, seized the ladj,
put- her by force in the carriage, and drove
wsy. The people, greatly excited, fol

P'irsuers. The leader in the abd action

privately some years ago. He went to
Australia, returning in 1889. Mrs Jack
son in the meantime had succeed.nl to a
fortune. She refused to live with her
husband. lie applied to the courts and,

Oa the authority of that order ho ab

Laid .siege to the Honse.
Throughout Sunday night the party
uatclie 1 the housa to see that no one es
canad, ami yesterday morning the weary
watchers were relieved by friend, who
c-mtimied the vigil all day. Occasion
ally during yesterday Mrs. Jackson would
appear .it a window, when the t rowd,
which seemed to increase rather tl an di
minish, would cheer her and encourage
the beseigers with words of sympathy
and expressions of confidence in thoir ul
timate .success in compelling the besieged

town Mibord:nated every duty to their fe
verish interest in the determined struggle
between the besiegers and the besieged,
and business was almost wholly sus

Strangers poured into the town frcrn all
directions, aud at nightfall the streets in
ttie vicinity of the Jackson house were
thronged with people, who, but for the
Iiresence of the police, would have forced
an entrance into the house in short order,
k was hoped by the besiegers nnd their
sympathizers that the inmates of the
house, would be .starved into capitulatiou
before night, but this hope was dissipated
whin toward nightfall two or three ham
pers of provisions were brought by the em
ployes of tradesmen, and quickly c;irried
within the police cordon and hoisted up to
a second-story window. It was then
learned that the house was provided with
a telephone, by which the inmates were
enabled to commuuicate with tradesmen,
and the besieging party will endeavor to
intercept any luture supplies.
May Result in Needed Reform.
The abduction of Mrs. Jackson will
probably be the subject of inquiry in par
liament. Knglish law on the question of
conjugal rights is rather antiquated for
present ideas of woman's rights. It was
extended to India about a quarter of a
century ago, and is used by Hindoo hus
bands to compel wives, who were wedded
in infaury and had never seen their hus
bands, to live with them, the wives ia
many iustances being mere children. The
J t kson case illustrates its possible ise in
Inland and may lead to a change that
vill give a wife security from an outrage
that at Ciitheree.
THE IRISH PRIEST IN POLITICS.
What Sir Gavan lnfly Says of the Mat
ter Archbishop Walsh.
Dublin, March 10. The Freemans'
Journal publishes a letter from Sir
Charles Ga van Duffy, in which that gen
tleman says that the policy of independ
ent opposition which Parnell had so far
carried on successfully originated in
147 with the Irish confederation.
Then, with the exception of two
bishops, the whole Roman Cath
olic episcopate resisted the policy
with all their power, and banished priests
j penal parishes for their support of the
independent party. The latter, by re ison
of corruption and intrigues, became re
duced lrom fifty to live members of par-1-anient,
the oishops always condoning or
approving every act of treachery. The
later concludes as follows: "Until all
t his clerical interference is changed t here
w no more hope for the Irish cause than
there is for a corpse on a dissecting ta3le."
Archbishop Walsh' Position.
London, March 10. A Dublin l.;tter
xuya that Archbishop Walsh does not ap
prove the extreme course taken by those

both as to the folly and the evil ellect
ttpon the nation's political and moral in
terests of giving countenance to Parnell,
the archbishop does not propose to t reat
either clergymen or laymen among Par
Cell's supporters any differently, in a re
ligious sense, from what he treats oth
ers. Has No Further Use for Gladstone.
London, March 10. The Evening Stan

longer of use as an instrument wherewith
to secure home rule.
