Farnell Foreiga Notes.
LoNDOS, June 30. All signs point to an
enthusiastic reception of the German em
peror. If there are any anarchists or so
cialists who meditate trouble they may
learn that, while- British law deals len
iently with insults to royalty, a British
taob does not, aDd the German emperor is
jnst now quite a favorite in Great Britain.
In his heart the Englishman dislikes
Prance, while he recognizes the German
kinship, and this feeling was strongly
displayed during the Franco-Prussian
war. Qneen Victoria will take no part in
the public reception to the emperor, part
ly because she wishes the emperor and not
herself to be the central figure of the dis
play, and partly also because she wishes to
make the Priu'-e of Wales prominent as
the representatives of English royalty.
His Grandmother Hu Faith.
The queen will personally receive the
emperor at Windsor next Saturday lie
her favorite graudchild, chiefly on ac
count of his mother, to whom the queen is
deeply attached, and also tiecanseVietoria
is suil to have a grandmother's faith ;n
the kaiser's future asan arbiter in the
affairs of Europe and confidence that lie
will yet win military fame for the rather
unuiilitary house of llauover.
IHiean't Like That Smuiay Visit.
The Kev. Dr. Parker, in his sermon in
the Temple yesterdHy. severely denounced
the selection of Suuday as the dale of the
kaiser's visit to the naval exhibition. The
preacher urged that it was a bad lesson for
Englishmen thus to desecrate the Lord's
day in pursuit of secular amusement and
instruction, and that the ruler of the tier
man empire ought to give a letter exam
ple. The reverend doctor alluded to the
ample time which royal and imperial per
sonages appeared to have for amusement
on week days.
Getting Tired of That Sort of Thing.
He thought the emperor might, without
loss to himself or his people, spare a little
of such time for the occasion in quest ion.
It was noticed that the remarks did not
evoke any signs of earnest approbation.
The fact is that everybody is tired of the
sensational whacking at royalty, and as
saults that might have been popular two
weeks ago'are received now with indiffer
ence and a versiou.

A New Dynamite Gun.
Manchester, Eng., June 29. A private
exhibition was given here Saturday of a
ik-'w gun which, it is predicted, will super
sede a great part of the ordinance now in
use. The inventor is J. E. Bott, an en
gineer, and the details as to the design,
etc, of the new piece, are kept a profound
secret nntil the American and continental
patents have been secured. The principle
of the gun is pneumatic, and it is claimed
that It will surpass the Zalinski gun in
range, and that it will throw fifty pounds
of dynamite a distance of three miles.
The new weapon, it is asserted, can be
fired twice a minute:
The French In Madagascar.
London, June 29. A Zanzibar dispatch
states that grave friction exists between
the French and the native government of
Madagascar. The interference of the
French residents at the- capital and the
arrogance of French missionaries have
greatly offended the Hovas, many of
whom belong to Protestant denomina
tions and do not propose to recognize any
Yale Challenges Oxford to Row.
Eon no?:, June 29. Oxford has received
a challenge from Yale to row on the
Thames late in August or earl- in Sept tin-lx-r.
The challenge was on the point ot
leiug accepted when the news of Yale's
defeat by Harvard at New London. Conn.,
was received. It was decided not to row
the vanquished crew, but a willingness
was expressed to row Harvard instead.

In a Scheme to Perpetuate Alienism In
the Vnited State.
BltrssELS, June 2!. A letter from Rome
received here says: "There has been re
ceived in Rome a memorial addressed to
the cardinals, endeavoring to enlist their
aid in the scheme of colonizing European
priests in the United States, by sending
with each shipload of emigrants Euro
pean priests of the same nationality as the
emigrants. The memorial boldly asserts
that the European governments must ex
ert themselves to retain their influence over
their eigrants to the United States
The memorial is very leiurtby, making
over 4.IXKJ words. It traces the loss of faith
by emigrants to first, the danger to which
their morals are exposed during the jour
ney: second, the lacK of national priests to
receive and care for the emigrants ou ar
riving in the United State.-; third, the
pecuniary sacrifices exacted of them in the
United States for the practice of their
religion; fourth, the public schools; fifth,

Political Character of the Move.
These six points are elaborated most
skilfully which elaboration is said to lie
the work of Father Villeneuve. The third
aud sixth points ore especially dwelt upon.
The field of operation is confined entirely
to the United States. The political char
acter of the movement is inadvertently
manifested by the statement that the Eu
ropean governments can no longer regard
the matter with indifference, and that it
is of the most importance to them to re
tain their influence over their people in
America. It insists for this purpose on
the preservation of their national lan
guage and the formation of national so

PARNELL AND HIS ENEMIES.
His Marriage Disappoints Them The
Campnlgn In Carlow.
London, June 2!). The marriage of Far
nell and Mrs. O'Shea has made a deep im
pression in Ireland, and one generally fa
vorable to the Irish leader. The anti-Par-nellites
were noticeably disappointed when
the news came to London, as some of them
bad been declaring all along that Parnell
never would marry Mrs. O'Shea. Theanti
Parnellites now declare that Parnell has
abandoned the home rule principle, and is
making the struggle in Ireland a question
of one man's dictation; that Parnell will
gradually drop out of politics and devote
himself to Kitty and her fortune.
Carlow Is a Ground Hog Case.
Paruell's cheerfulness since his marriage
has struck all obervers. He seems to re
gard his political prosjects as greatly im
proved, and is arranging to push the Car
low campaign on a fresh basis. He admits
that be must win Carlow if he expects to
carry Ireland as a whole. The district is
pretty evenly divided, aud it looks like a

London, June 29. Last week a speci

placed on exhibition here. The specimen

looks 40, and is about the most impish,

ies of Lieutenant Totten, who is endeavor
ing to convince people that the world will
end within the present decade.have already
had one disastrous result. Rev. Frank L.
Slavens, a bright young minister who had
taken a post-graduate course at the Yale
divinity school, was committed to the
Hartford insane asylum Saturday as a
hopeless maniac. He fell in with Lieutenant
Totten, with whom he soon became very
intimate. He shortly became the most
sincere disciple of.Totten's milleuium the
ories. The proximity of the world's end
was too much for his brain, and he has
slowly but surely lost his mind.
Thinks He Is the Redeemer.
Mr. Slavens' insane idea is that he is the
redeemer who Lieutenant Totten prophe
sies will return to earth. He had beeu sta
tioned at Southington, Conn., but last
week was called to Brooklyn to supply a
pulpit there. While on the way his wife
ilisiovered the first symptoms of the terri
ble oalamity and at once took measures to
discover what she feared but dreaded o
know. It took but little investigation of
the family physicians to show that the
once fine uiiLd was destroyed.

building at Denver. This year the event
will le the opening of the Colorado min

on the silver question a vote will Isj
taken to decide whether they favor the

"Court etiquette forbids that. In fact, I

' For instance, they came out in boats to
meet us, and the main statement they
mi'rie on their return was that the prince
ha 1 taken the ship's clerk as his most inti

to have it said that he had been so intimate

"I am certain that we know the truth
regarding the cause of the attack. Up to
a short t ime ago a certain class of nobles
in Japan received a pension from the gov

taken from them and they are now

Peculiarities of the Law.
CHICAGO, June 29 George J. Gibson,
the ex-secretary of the whisky trust, looks
Kke a winner in his case. He was charged
with conspiracy to murder, attempted
arson and procuring gunpowder for the
unlawful destruction of property. The
judge Saturday quashed all the indict
ments except the last, and took the quash
ing of that under advisement. The evi
deuce, circumstantial and direct, in this
case is pretty strong as shown in these di
patches at the time of the arrest, and the
quashing was done in every case on the
technicality that the law did not exactly

board of the Knights of Labor now in ses

attitude of the order towards the domi

is not a party organization and never will
be, but would be governed by circum

quest ion wuh them is: What can be ac
complished, and upon that depends the
action of the knights. In Ohio it would
be guided by future developments.
