V l,yMlorel: Notes.
DcBUy April 6. the spectaf nUr effect
taass-rneeting held in Phoenix parjs yes
terday to express popular sentiment in fa
far of amnesty to Irish and Irish-American
pplitlcal prisoners In English jails
Sras spoiled by the drenching rain which
prevailed, and the procession had to be
abandoned. In spite of the bad weather
2,000 persons gathered in the park and
supplemented this manifestation of their
earnestness and enthusiasm by cheering
Parnell, and heartily groaning the elect
ors of Sligo, who voted and worked
e - . - . . icDummvuB W9CU
by the Amnesty society, demanding the
release of the Irish and Americans con
fined in British jails for political offense',
was placarded throughout the towns and
j-arneu aeuvereu a speecn in support or
A a Attack on the Liberal.
Parnell's utterances were very vehe
ment in tone and very intemperate, if not
wholly reckless,in respect to phraseology,
encouraging the belief that frequent de
teats at the polls will cause him to abaa
dou the constitutional methods which
hate heretofore characterized his course,
and lead him to adopt a more violent pol
icy. His criticism of the attitude of the
Liberal party was particularly harsh. He
declared that it had always been a Liberal
government thit had condemned Irish
men to long terms of imprisonment for
political offenses, and invariably a Tory
government that had released them. What
government,' he aked, had released Mich
ael Davitt from the hardships of prison
life? Certainly not Gladstone'3 govern
nAnfc. Why did not Gladstone's, upon
Itvtvtng oftice, unlock the prison doors
which he had closed upon members of the
party whose iuterests. he professed to up
hold? A Healylte Diversion.
Gladstone did not hesitate in 1SS6 to
ascertain the opinion of dynamiters in
America as to whether they would accept
the home rule bill, and he had even re
ceived those persons at Uawarden. Whv,
therefore, had he not released these prison
ers, who were certainly no worse than
those with whom his had bargained?
A Voice "Why did not you make their
release a condition of accepting the Lio
eral alliance?" Some Healyites here raised
a cry. "Kill him!" "Lynch him!"
Parnell stood unmoved, and replied,
without a quaver: "The Irish party has
never made conditions; and the prisoners
would rather not than that it should."
The Irish, he declared, had nothing to
hope for at the hands of the Liberals, but
the irhth nationhood, which was very
shortly coming, would release the prison
ers now wasting their lives in British
jails. Parnell ha retired to Avondale,
"where he will spend a few cays in recuper
ating preparatory to addressing a series
- of meetings in Ireland.
NEW TIPPERARY IS DOOMED.
Smith-Barry's Tenants Giving tip Their
Fight with Hint.
London, April a It is stated that
Smith-Barry hits notified his Tipperary
agent, Mr. Townsend, to make liberal
terms with the tenants returning to their
farms. The tenants have been gradu
ally coming back for the past fonr
months, but the large body have held out
"until now, when they make a complete sur
render.and practically throw themselves on
the generosity of the landlord. This is the
end. of New Tipperary, which has cost
many thonands of pounds to the Irish
National league and its supporters in
America and Australia.
Reason for the Surrender.
The reason for the surrender of the ten
ants at this time is their anxiety to tuVe
advantage of the Irish land purchase bill,
which comes up this week, and will be
come a law virtually without opposition,
except on the part of Lahoachere and a
few other English Radicals. Should th9
tenants not be in possession of their farms,
of the bill. It is said that both Irish fac
tions in parliament favor the measure.
THEY OBJECTED TO DAVITT.
The Irish Leader Rejected as a Royal
Los DON, April 6. The refusal of the
government to accept Michael Davitt as
Irish representative on the labor commis
sion is generally -approved by both parties
in England. The London -trade union
ists do not conceal their satisfaction, and
their leader Tom Mann, who proposes
himself to issue ftiabor paper is aid to
be gratified at the 'repudiation of Davitt,
v .1 . v. : . t.Mn : :
claim to regard as a foreigner, with no
right to interfere in the labor interests of
'o Place for Ex-Dynamltera.
It is stated that no sooner was Davitt 's
' un mentioned than urgent protests
poured on Smith, not from Conservatives
alone, but from Liberals of every rank,
claiming that a man convicted of connec
tion with dynamiters' was not a proper
person to sit in a royal commission deni
ing with most important interests of the
What Antl-rrnetlltes Say.
Dcbux, April be national tress,
the new McCarthyite newspaper, enys of
the Sligo result: "Despite the fact , that
nearly 1,000 Orangemen supported the
candidate of the Parnellites, and that the
votes of almost as many members of the
National Federation party were abstract
ed and in the face of the grossest bribery,
Sligo has struck a smashing blow for the
national cau. In spite of bully ings,
ki,i.uinninM nnd mob law nersonallv or-
wftui.fei ' - - -
ganiztid by Parnell, the Nationalists have
won the most remarkable triumph ever
achieved for home rale."
British Wives Have Some Right.
x London, April 0. The decision iu the
famous Jackson case that a wife can live
apart from her husband if she chooses to
do so has apparently wrought a consid
erable change in the interpretation of
English law on this subject. Sinse the
decision was rendered, judges ha m ire
qneatly informed wives who appli id for
legal separation from their but bands,
that proceedings are unnecessary t effect
the desired separation. . ?,
U f GERMANY ASKING QUESTIONS.
How the Amxrleo-Italiaa Imbroglio Is
'.-: ,-v ' . Used la the Fatherland.
f London, April It is stated tht the
.German government has sent instructions
to its minister to ascertain what, it any,
guarantee-of protection the An.erican
government gives to German subl ets re
siding in the United States. The present
controversy between America and 1 taly is
viewed with no little satisfaction at Ber
lin, and the worst possible form g.ven to
it by the German press ; generally. The
motive is not as much unfriendliness to
the United States as to put a stop in Ger
Trying- to Check Kmlgratlon. '
This is already making itself felt in the
lack of laborers for agricultural work.
The Conservative party and the large
landholders generally are in favor of pro
hibiting emigration for all except Jews,
as is done in Russia. The governb ent is
not prepared to go this far, but nt ne the
less appreciates the fact of the drain upon
the industries of Germany. Tie im
pression is, therefore, sought to lie cre
ated that America is a lawless country,
and that scenes like the New Orients mas
sacre are of ordinary occurrence.
IN THE CHINESE NAVY.
Cheerful Sort of Punishment Met d Ont
London, April 6. The German officer,
Florschutz, who took a command some
time ago in the construction of theC hinese
navy, has written home some interesting
facts about the war vessels of that empire.
The native officers, he says, insist upon
treating sailors aud marines guilty of of
fenses just as Chinese criminals an- treat
ed on shore, and it is not an inf r -quent
spectacle to see three or four men m irehed
up on deck to have their heads cut off in
the presence of the crew, while occasion
ally a cage may be seen hanging from the
yard-arm with a poor wretch inside of H
undergoing n slow death by starvation
and lack of sleep. They have also intro
duced the practice of keel-hauli lg, in
which the crews take great delig'it, al
though it is usually death to the subject
of the punishment.
A Doctor Makes a Had Patient- -
London-, April 6. An amusing story
is told of Sir William Thompson, the
great physician, who has been ill for some
time, but who is now mending. KU med
ical attendants declare that they never had
a worse patient in the matter of obstin
acy. He would not take his medicine for
days together, and it was only ly the
doctors threatening to abandon hint alto
gether that he reluctautly consected to
swallow the prescribed draughts. The
leading physician expressing a disbelief in
drugs as a remedy when his own ail xtents
are under treatment is somewha, of a
novelty and calculated to rouse many sus
picions and misgivings in ordinary lay
Here's Another Complication.
Pakis, April 6. If Chicago expects to
get the bast work from leading Trench
artists for the World's fair better guar
antees than any yet given at American
exhibitions must be assured. Ben
jamin Constant says he is not iocli led to
Fend other pictures than those a ready
in the United States. Bongnireau,
whose opinion is very weighty, he being
president of the Society of Arts, tu5 s that
while he is most kindly disposed to .yards
art movements in America, it is too great
a risk to expose valuable works to such
long absence when it is difficult to ,-et re
dress in the event of irregularities.
London, April fi. Dr. Gossct, of Paris,
has been experimenting with the Brown
Seqnard elixir. He says: "I do not cure
anything, bnt I give the sick means .1
getting well, beginning with strength,
sleep, and appetite." Gossett says 1 e has
made 6,000 injections in a patient f offer
ing from' hereditary tuberculosis. He
said he had oeen receiving treatment six
months and had gained thirty three
More Russian Villainy In Bulgaria.
Sofia, April 6. Prince Ferdinand and
Princess Clementine have received letters
threatening them with death unless they
leave the conntry at once. M. Gre iscoff
is also threatened with assassination if he
does not resign the office of minis er of
foreign affairs. There is strong evi lence
that the letters emanated from an olBciul
connected with the Russian embassy in
American Editors Alarmists.
ROME, April ft Minister Fava will sail
for Italy on the 11th. The Opinione new
paper protests against the alarmist state
ments of the American press as intended
to excite feeling against Italy, at dob
scure the rval position, which cotcerns
the whole world equally with Italy.

London, April 6. The pope has orlered
100 churches in Rome to be closed, they
being unable to support themselves on ac
count of the sequestration of their i;oods
by the government.
STANLEY'S BOY SAU.
Re Gets an Idea What "Equality" leans
in the United States.
ATLANTA, Ga,, April 6. Stanley's serv
ant, Sali, has come to the conclnsiot that
it is more pleasant to be a negro in Eng
land than in the United States of Amer
ica.. "While I was sitting in the Kimball
house," said be, "a man came in and i hook
me and called me a negro. I iound
that he was the policeman. He toll me
to get out; that they wanted no negroes in
that hotel. Of course I left. The people
in England are white, and yet they do not
do that way. I do not want to sU.y in
such a country as this." The hotel peo
ple say that they could not entertiin a
negro under any circumstances, but that
Sali was "impertinent," and d esorved
what he got.
' An Echo ot Parrlen's Abdr.ctioo. .
Detroit, Mich., (April a The ecio of
the now famous abduction of Joseph Fer
rien recently was heard Saturday x ight,
when Chief of Police Borgmann tendered
his resignation at the request, it is said,
of the police commission. When Per
rien's abtlaction first became knowt the
newspapers put their best men at voi-k,
with the result that they laid clewr and
news before the department. Borgi lann
laughed at the case aud belittled it. The
newspapers openly acensed him of i leffi
ciency and demanded his removal. !i ;

THE FUNERAL PASSES OFF QUIETLY.
Two of Those Wounded Thursday Die ot
Tbetr Wounds Watch orn and Frlek
Engaged In an Issue of Veracity, with
the Former a Little Ahead So Far A
Labor Meeting at Chicago Sits Down
on a Speaker Who Didn't Speak to Suit
Mount Pleasant, Pa.' April . The
fnneral of the men killed here Thursday
by the deputy sheriffs took place at Scott-1
dale Saturday without hindrano, and
notwithstanding the gloomy predictions
given out, no trouble followed. After the
funeral speeches were made by the labor
leaders, bat till of them were appeals
for peace. Several shots were fired
last night on . the hill back of the
works at Morewood, causing a great
deal of excitement,' bnt at' 10 o'clock
everything was quiet. Superintendent
Ramsey's house was surrounded by senti
nels and eleven soldiers were sleeping in
the kitchen. There is some ill-feeling
against him because men who are not ont
on strike have been ordered to go to work.
The strikers threaten violence to any one
who goes to work. A check for $10,000
from the headquarters of the United Miue
Workers of America was received by the
local officials in Scottdale Saturday night.
Think the Disorder Is Over.
The men in charge of the strike think
there will be no more disorder. Their idea
is to have large numbers of the strikers
visit the plants now in operation and per
suade the men to come out. At different
places in the region notice was given yes
terday that the fight for the 8-hour day
and against a 10 per cent, reduction has
begun. The number wounded in last
Thursday's trouble has been greatty ex
aggerated. The list will hardly exceed
fifteen, aud they are all now doing well.
But two of toe wounded died ot their in
juries Saturday night Paul Salinsky and
Having a Little Controversy.
A controversy has broken out between
H. C. Frick and Robert Watchorn, secre
tary of the United Mine Workers. Frick
is reported in an interview as holding the
labor leaders responsible for the troubles.
Watchorn, when shown the interview,
ssiu he-would have, affidavits made to
show that II. C. Frick paid for the pass
age of workmen from Europe to America,
and that many of these men were forced
to go down in the mines at the muzzles r
rifles and revolvers, where they were com
pelled to stay until such time as Mr.
Frick saw fib to liberate them. He also
indignantly denied that he was at all re
sponsible for the bloody affair Thursday,
and said that he had counseled peace in
and out of season and always denounced
lawless attacks on property and persons.
The Charge Denied by Frick.
Frick absolutely denied the charge that
he had assisted men to emigrate to this
country to work in his plants. He said:
"I am notf ready and willing to state that
neither myself nor my company, nor anr
one in its behalf, directly or indirectly,
assisted, procured or requested any man
to emigrate to this country." And he adds
that he is reedy to meet Watchorn on this
issue ot fact, and can prove that the
statements are false, and that Watchorn
knew it when he made them.
Two Witnesses Brought Forward.
In reply Watchorn resents the charge
made by Frick, and presents two affidavits,
one of which is sigued by James Collins,
who says he sigued an agreement in Lan
cashire, England, to come to this region
and work for H. C. Frick & Coat the rate
of LT5 to $2.00 per day. it being asserted
that there was no strike in existence or
pending. This was in January, 18S6, and
when he arrived the whole region was on
strike. William Mullan swears that one
of Frick's superintendents went to his
house March -7 last, and ordered him to
go to work, and upon his refusal, ordered
him to leave the company's house, which
Forced to Join the Fatal Raid.
Robert Ramsey, superintendent ot the
Frick works, said: "I have a list of the
houses where the strikers damaged the
doors to make the men go with them.
Out of the thirteen houses so far exam
ined ten door panels were broken out; in
one house half of the door was complete
ly knocked out, and a number of locks
were broken. One poor fellow who wes
compelled to go with the strikers was
DIDN'T PLEASE HIS AUDIENCE.
Chicago Seamen Disgusted with a Mil
waukee Man's Speech.
Chicago, April ft John Dolan, who
came all the way from Milwaukee, pre
sided at a meeting of the Seamen's union
in Columbia ball yesterday afternoon.
The meeting broke np in a row. because
Dolan's remarks displeased the members.
Dolan is president of the Milwaukee
union. He advocated the interests of the
easel owners without touching on the
grievances Of the seamen, fo which pur
pose the meeting had been called. He
was frequently interrupted with cries and
cat-calls and such remarks as "Who's
paying your salary and expenses?" "Is
thin a meeting of the Vessel Owners' asso
ciation or of the Seaman's union?" The
audience grew more impatient as the
speaker informed them that under the
existing circumstances they wonld be un
able to secure better wages the coming
Advised to Go Home.
He then argned on railroads, freights,
farmers, and almost every other subject
except the particular object of the meet
ing until those present howled themselves
hoarse. . Finally Richard Powers, a mem
ber of the Chicago onion, jumped to his
teat and denounced Dolan and his meth
ods. He advised Dolan to go back to
Milwaukee and attend to his own busi
ness, and said that the chairman had in
sulted all present by bringing policemen
into the hall. He invited the audience to
tnrn their backs upon the meeting and
leave the chairman alone with the police
men for an audience. As soon as he had
finished the audience arose and left the
hall. Dolan said that his expenses here
had been paid by the Milwaukee branch,
but that he would return immediately to
Wisconsin, and not attempt to hold any
more meetings in Chicago.
Tla Workers on a Strike.
St. Paul, Minn., April ft Seven hun
dred tin, Bheet-iron and cornice workers
of St. Paul and Minneapolis laid down
their tools Saturday night and will not
resume work until their differences with
the bosses are adjusted. They demand
nine hours as a day's work from Hay 1
and 20 per cent, increase in wages. Min
neapolis tin, sheet-iron and cornice work
ers have a similar fight on hand, and the
unions of both cities will stand together.
A Bequest to the Preachers.
PrrrsBUKG, Pa., April 6. At the meet
ing of the Pittsburg Central Trades coun
cil Saturday evening a resolution was
adopU. asking the clergy of Allegheny
county to preach at leasv one sermon be
tween now and May 1 on the eight-hour
question, as a means of educating employ
ers. Some of the ministers will not grant
the request. .

A CKBTAIH BKLIE7-
Many aged people suffer
greatly with a dry, hard cough,
a painful feeling of tightness
and oppression across the
chest and a sense of a dull un
comfortable pain in the side
They carry this about year
after year, sometimes feeling
better and sometimes worse,
but never being able to throw
it entirely off. They fancy
that it is one of the accompani
ments of old age which they
must perforce put up with as
best as they can. This need
not be the case, all' of these
symptoms are simply the result
of inflammation more or less
pronounced of the air passages
of the lungs, and of the thin
membrane tha contitutes their
i ning. They cat, b9 relieved
by taking Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Care. It is
the best remedy for old age
that was ever discovered be
cause it is in itself stimulating
and nutritious and aids the en
feebled digestive organs to re
gain their former tone.
