London, March 2a Deep indignation, is
expressed among all classes of English
men in regard to the reports current as
to the treatment of the Grand Duchess
Elizabeth, grand-daughter of Queen Vic
toria, by her husband, the Grand Duke
Serg us of Russia, brother of the czar. It
Is no v well understood that the czar's
motivj for appointing his brother to be
governor of Moscow was not, as officially
mated, to g'ive him a mark of esteem, but
to remove the grand duchess from the
foreign society of St. Peters bury, where
her maltreatment by the imperial family
kaa alread caused an internati jnal scan
dal. The reports as to the abuse to which
the lady has been subjected are mere gos
sip, but come from high and trust-worthy
sources, and nobody in England has any
doubt of their truth.
Scratch a Russian, Find a Tartar.
The grand duke issaid to be really at
tached to his wife, but he treats her on
the same principle that Russia treats a
conquered province or state. Having an
nexed her by inarrins;?, he has claimed
that she must become Russian altogether,
!ven to the abandonment of the r-ligion
in which sbe was born and educated.
With this purpose coercion characterized
as brutal has been tried upon her. When
she desired to attend English services she
found no carriage to take her, and the
grand duke on such occasion has shown a
displeasure in ways that a Russian or Tar
tar, whether high or low, very well under
stands. Tliere is no allegation openly
made of physical violence, but rumors
even to that effect are current. The young
duchess appealed for a divorce to her
father, the Grand Duke Louis of Hesse,
and her urandmother. Queen Victoria.
That Ireailfnl Dread of Scaudai.
The queen, dreadiug scandal, appears to
have advised her to comply with her hus
band's wishes as to religion. Officially
the queen was simply stated to have sent
her blessing to her grand-daughter, about
to be converted to the Russian church.
The Grand Duke Louis, however, took a
different view of matters. He was indig
nant, and openly protested against bis
daughter beiu-; coerced as to her religious
profession, and wanted to bring her home.
Then ensued a correspondence between the
father and the grandmother, the former
urging, the latter deprecating, interfer
ence, but before anything could be dose
the Russian imperial family, nppr-heiiMve
of the disgrace that would attach to them
should the grand duchess leave her hu-s-band,
made the official announcement of
Sent Where Her Crip Can't Bp Heard.
Then speedily followed the decree ap
pointing Serius governor of Moscow and
removing him and his wife to that interior
Russian city, far from the glimpses of
England and Germany that may occa
sionally be caught at St. Petersburg. It
is not at all certain that the end is yet.
The Grand Duke Louis is thoroughly
aroused. It is lie wh has through The
Times and other newspapers appealed
from Queen Victoria to the English peo
ple in behalf of his daughter, and what
ever the result may le he has certainly
succeeded in exciting a strong public sen
timent. THE BLACKTHORN AT WORK.
Mnnduy IMventioii :it lis and Ina;hpda
London, March '-'3. Things were hot
at Slio yesterday. When the prieMs
were not in church they were busy attend
ing to politics, and for several of the rows
that occurred the Parnellites claim that
the ecclesiastics were responsible. The
McCarthy ites claim that the community
is absolutely devoted to the priesthood
which is true in good part and that Par
nell stands no chance against the hos
tility of the church. Parnell had a very
"warm" reception at Drogheda His
friends and enemies combined to make it
no. His friends met him when he ar
rived with great enthusiasm, and so did
his enemies. Hands of music, triumphal
arches and green flags were abundant.
Where the l'nn Came in.
One arch had been erected near a church,
and as the Parnellite procession came
along it was greeted with groans aud hiss
es, and finally the McCarthyites threw a
rope over the arch aud pulled it down
upon the bends of the Parneliites. Many
ot the Parnellites were thrown to the
ground, and in the struggle to free them
selves froi.1 this entanglement of ropes,
banners, flags, etc.. they involved many
others in the jam. Tins was the signal
for a bloody encounter, but the police ap
peared upon the scene in strong force in
time to prevent it by driving the attack
ing force away. The procession readied
the market place withc.it further inci
dent, beyond occasio ual jeering, and Par
nell made his speech.
A FACER FOR GLADSTONE.
The .Aston Election One of Very (ireat
LONDON, March 23. An election was
held Friday at Aston to till the vacancy
caused by the death of Kynoch, Conserva
tive. The candidates were Hutchinson,
Conservative, and Beale, Gladstonian.
The result is a surprise, in the Liberal
camp, at least, as the Conservative was.
elected by an increased vote over the elec
tion in lWsti. The figures were: Hutchin
son, 6,310; Beale, 2,332. In lS.sfi the vote
was: Kynoch, Conservative, 3,405; Reid,
Liberal, 2,713. The Liberals cannot es
cape the significance of the Conservative
victory this year. It is a severe blow to
them, even according to their own show
ing. Before the election, The Daily
Mews, the leading Gladstonian organ,
ttaid: "The result of the coming electiou
at Aston will be of far greater significance
that of either of the two previous ones.
At the first election which took place at
Aston Manor in 1385 the contest was
fought on distinctive party lines, the
candidates beings Liberal and a Tory
A Workiugman's Constituency, Too
"Then Mr. Gilsiau lie id, Jsiberal, was re
turned by a majority of nearly 1,200 over
Mr. Yates, who in addition to being a
large property -owner was a prominent lo
cal man, and has resided in Aston all his
life. This result emphatically showed
that Aston was a Liberal constituency.
In 1886 2,363 Liberals abstained from
voting, being displeased with Mr. Glad'
stone's home rule scheme, and thinking
the district safe for a Liberal any way.
The election of the Conservative candi
date, Mr. Kynoch, greatly chagrined the
Liberal party, and they L-sgao to make
great preparations to redeem the constit
uency. The register has increased large
ly, and as Aston is a working-class con
stituency the prospects are more in favor
of the Liberals than the Tories."
Getting Sick of the Irish Question.
The last sentence is the most significant.
Aston is a constituency of workingmen,
and in his appeal to these workingmen
Capt. Grice Hutchinson, the Conservative
candidate, made the Irish question promi
nent. He said all other questions were of
comparative insignificance beside that of
maintaining the union. Mr. Phipsnrj
Beale, the Liberal candidate, said on his
opening address that he came forward as
a Liberal and a Home Ruler, and sup
porter of Mr. Gladstone. The general ex
planation is that the people of England
are getting sick of the Irish question, a:.d
that the candidate appealing for votes b-.d
better have very little to say in favor of
Irish home rule.
The Costume Too Airy for Him.

Battenburg, son-in-law of Queen Vic

Lincoln, Xeb., March 23. The state s.j -ate
chamber presents a novel appearance.
Since Friday the bo.ly has been in a dead
lock over the maximum freiht rate bill,
the Republicans and Democrats deter
minedas to a majority that it shall not
pass, and the Alliance men equally de
termined that it shall. Consequently
neither side will agree to adjournment,
and cots have been brought into the ha'.l,
audit lookslike a hotel corridorin national
convention tune. Five members are all
that are necessary to keep the senate in ses
sion by insisting ou a call aud the five
are always ready to do so.and declare that
they will continue their tactics until the
close of the session if necessary to defeat
the bill. Only five days of the session re
main, aud the opponents of the bill seem
cheerful over the situation.

the bill surprised everybody Friday by

Washington City, March 23. Actintr
Secretary Nettletou, of the treasury de
partment, makes public the following
circular letter to the revenue collectors
throughout the country:
''SIR: Letters are frtqueutly received at
the department stating that in many parts
of the country retail liquor dealers claim
to hold a permit orliceuse from the United
States for carrying on their business; that
in many cases where local law prohibits
public drinking places the law is openly
violated by persons who claim to do busi
ness under nt least the moral sanction of
a 'federal li. ense," and that this fact, to
gether with the belief common among
many good citizens that the United States
government does in fact issue such li
censes, grea'ly retards the enforcement of
wholesome restrictive laws and promotes
The License Only a Keceipt.
If should be unnecssary to state that the
United States government does not issue
a license or permit of any nature to any
person in any state to carry on the busi
ness of rvtai liquor dealer, and it is diffi
cult to uiid.-rstaiid how any intelligent
citiZi'ii can i.e imposed upon by the oppo

revenue stamp tax of $2 per annum on

deavors to collect this tax, wherever and
by whomsoever the business is carried on;
bin no semblance of permission, express
or implied, i . given by the United States
government iu its revenue laws or othf
wise to begin or continue such business iu
any place contrary to state or local legis
