and Bismarck Cable Note.
London, March 30. The public feeling
regarding the case of Mrs. Jackson, who
was abducted by her husband some weeks
ago, and later released by order of the
court, has almost unanimously changed,
wing to late developments of the true in
wardness of the matter. It appears that
Mrs. Jackson inherited a large fortune
from a Mr. Anderson, who sought her
Land in marriage prior to her engagement
to Jackson, but whom she refused never
theless. When Anderson died, a short
time after her marriage, it was found
that his will bequeathed the bulk of his
estate to Mis. Jackson. In the event of
Mrs. Jackson dying without issue her
estate would fall to her nearest relative?,
members of a family of the name of Bald
win. Want to Make an Heir Impossible.
Mrs. Jackson is childless, and the peo
ple of Clitheroe hold Baldwin responsible
for the estrangement between her and her
hnsband in the first place and for the
subsequent attempts which have been
made to keep theiu apart and prevent a
reconciliation with the purpose of mak
ing it impossible for children to be born
to them. The popular feeling against
Mr. and Mrs. Baldwin and Mrs. Jackson
has rapidly increased of late, and Satur
day evening mob of indignant residents
of Clitheroe attempted to burn Mrs.
Jackson in effigy. In response to a call
quietly circulated hundreds of persons
gathered in the market place at an early
hour and marched in procession through
the chief streets, bearing the effigy aloft.
The Mob 1'rnceeris to Violence.
The police became aware of the purpose
of the mob, and when the crowd arrived
at the house occupied by Mrs. Jackson
they found the constables guarding it in
strong force. Finding themselves foiled
in their purpose, the mob became furious.
After a hasty consultation of the leaders,
the street lights were extinguished, and
the crowd attacked the house with stones
and other missiles, smashing the windows
and doing other damage, the utmost
efforts of the police ' beinc; necessary to
prevent the rioters from effecting an en
trance to the building. The maddened
people then proceeded to Mr. Baldwin's
house, which they pelted with stones,
mud, sticks, etc , breaking many win
do ws.'nnd but for the timely arrival of a
large posse of police would have battered
down the doors.
A TIME OF IT IN IRELAND.
Two Ilays Turbulence Hardy Controled
by the Police.
Sligo, March 30 But for the presence
of the constabulary and military there
would be a civil war in Ireland in less
than a month, and all about a woman.
Saturday the police were kept busy pre
venting the factions from coming togeth
er, or separating them when they got to
work breaking hea s. Yesterday it was
the same thing over again. Sligo was
crowded all day. At S o'clock a. m. the
streets were alive with music The bishop
and priests denounced Parnell from the
altar. Parnell took an excursion to
StrandhiM. where lie legan a personal
canvass, but meeting with a hostile recep
tion returned to i?ligo.
llaynnett Called I'pon.
Maurice llealy, Sexton. Davitt and
Collery, started at t iu the morning for
Tireagh, addressing small gatherings
until they reached Templeboy. There
the people formed into two hostile groups.
The Paruellites, armed with blackthorns,
moved against the MeCarthyites with the
intention of attacking them; but the
police interrupted with fixed bayonets,
and the storm subsided. At Dromore
Wet the Parnellites stoned their oppon
ents, and the police made a charge witu
clubs on the Parnellites. Then Davitt
led his followers off the ground amid a
fusillade of stones. Several anti-Par-nellites
were injured, and Pinkerton, M.
1., had his head cut.
Tanner Assaulted by a Mob.
At Eakley the anti-Paruell speakers
found the Paruellites barring the road
nnd by advice of the police retreated to
Sligo. Iu the evening a meeting of anti
Parnellites was held at Sligo, when the
speakers charged that the mob had acted
under instructions from the Parnell lead
ers. A telegram from Ilallina states that
Dr. Tanner was seriously assaulted there
by a Pamellite mob.

THE RED HAND OF RUSSIA.
Visible in the Work of the Assassin at
London, March 30. Public opiuion in
London and Sofia holds Russia responsible
for the assassination of the Bulgarian
minister of finance, Baltcheff, and no one
has any doubt that the intended victim
was Stambuloff. It is not the first time
that Ilussiuu intrigue has nerved the
hand of crime. Russia contrived the kid
uaping of Prince Alexander, and was
proven to be at the bottom of the Panitza
conspiracy against the life of Prince
Ferdinand. Stambuloff is acknowledged
to be one of the ablest men in Europe.
His genius and energy have created Bul
garia, and made it the most respectable of
the Balkau states, with the possible ex
ception of Roumania. He has made it a
military power which not even Russia
The Bismarck of Bulgaria.
While Stambuloff lives, it does not mat
ter how many princes Russia may kidnap
or assassiuate, Bulgaria lives. Stambuloff 'a
death now would be what the death of
Bismarck would have been in Germany
lifteen years ago, or of Cavour when Vic
tor Emanuel was not yet iu sight of the
promised land of united Italy. Therefore
liis murder would be of the greatest ser
vice to Russia and also in accord with
many dark precedents of Russian history.
As it is, the plot, like that of Panitza, has
miscarried, ;nd Stambuloff still lives to
hunt down the assassins of his fellow min
ister. So far he has never failed iu either
detection or punishment. Several pris
oners have already been taken into cus
tody. The Funeral of RaUcheAT.
Prince Ferdinand hastened back to
Sofia on learning of the assassination of
Minister Baltcheff and with the Princess
Clementine attended the funeral Sunday.
The prince laid a wreath on the coffin,
and followed the remains on foot to the
cathedral. There a special service was
held, attended by all the dignitaries and a
vast multitude of people. An imposing
cortege followed the remains to the ceme

Growing in t Popularity While Kaiser
Billy's Star I Somewhat Dimmed.
London. March 30. Prince Bismarck is
fitting up in an elaborate manner the two
houses he has purchased in the Konig
gratzer Strasse and thirty of the rooms
are being furnished in a style befitting a
wealthy potentate or the ambassador of
some leading power. The prince, his
friends say, will maintain a sort of per
sonal court in Berlin to which his follow
ers and admirers, German and foreign, can
resort, and from all appearances it will
be a center of considerable influence and
Lack of Coniidence in the Kaiser.
The war talk, which usually makes a
sovereign popular, has a contrary effect in
the case of the kaiser, aud there is hardly
concealed apprehension of his ability to
direct Germany in a crisis, while there is
also a feeling that his overtures to France
have had something to do toward bring
ing a crisis on. Bismarck grows in popu
larity as faith in the kaiser cools, and con
fidence in the kaiser just now is at a very

London, March Si). Advices from St.
Petersburg state that the Lutheran grand
duchesses are having a very unhappy
time at the Russian court sinca the con
version of Priucess Elizabeth of Hesse to
the orthodox faith. They are regarded in
some measure as the champions of Teu
tonism against Russia, and in the present
strained relations between Russia and
Germany this gives a pretext for coolness
on the part of the imperial family.
The Suffrage Farce in Austria.
London, March 33. A Vienna corre
spondent, commenting upon the wisdom
of extending the franchise iu Austria,
says that the memliers of the reichrath are
practically returned by about 3 percent,

every 100 possess the right of voting and
but a little over 3) per cent, of these go to
the polls, the great laud owners controll

Tiffin, O., March 30. The temperance
warfare at Bloomville continues with ad
ditional riotous demonstrations. After
the demolition of his saloon on Thursday
night William Miller procured a new
stock of liquors and and established him

his place was visited by a crowd of thir
teen men and eleven women, who assault

injuring the latter severely and giving
both of them half an hour to leave the

on Thursday on account of alleged frauds
in the unlawful use of untaxed brandy.
The value of the plant seized is about

since 1883 it has been marketing braudy

another, and made the excuse that young

which he luver forgave in any one during
