as a defeat for the Union Labor element.
The sub-treasury scheme, the Ocala plat

after submitting the cablegram received

Chilian sailors last week, to the president,
has made public the substance of the dis

Captain Schley stated that he had made a 4

sailors on the Ki'.h inst The investiga
tion shows that Petty Officer Charles Rig

Petty Officer Hamilton was wnnndpd sev

man Davidson were dangerously injured
by an assault with clubs, stones and

dangerously injured. Thirty-five seamen
were arrested by the authorities, but what
disposition was made of them cannot be
learned from inabilitv to translate the
Chilian Police Implicated.
The surgeons of the Baltimore are of
the opinion that some of the wounds were
inflicted by bayonets, showing clearly the
participation ot the Chilian nol ce. The
American sailors were without arms and
defenseless. The investigation shows that
they were sober and were in no resnect
guilty of misbehavior. Two of the seri
ously wounded are still in the hospital.
In several instances the sailors of the
Chilian fleet rendered assistance to the
American sailors, and several of them
were arrested. Secretary Tracy would
not say whether any action in the matter
had been decided upon.
Will Be Ijiid Before th Junta.
An unofticial dispatch from Valparaiso
says: "Lieutenant James H. Sears, of
the United States warship Baltimore,
started for Santiago yesterday afternoon
bearing with him a communication from
Captain Schley, of the Baltimore, to
U nited States Minister Ecan. containing
the full result of the inauirv made bv
Captain Schley into the killing of Boat
swain's Mate Began and the wounding of
several others of the Baltimore's crew.
The report shows the attack to have been
brntal and unprovoked. Minister T.ann
will lay the matter before the junta, but
will make no formal demand until he has
received instructions from 'Washington.
Refuse Safe Conduct for Refugees.
"Tbe Chilian government has informed
Mr. Egan that a safe conduct will not be
issued for the refugees now in the United
States legation. The supposed ground
for this refusal is that tbe men are crim
inals. Mr. Egan continues to demand
safe conduct for them. The question now
appears far from settlement."

There has not been a day for many years
when there were not about a hundred suits

Killed by a Train Kear Washington His
Sacrifice to Become a Citizen.
"Washington, Oct 24.--Su Penn, a Core
an prince, was killed Thursday night by
a train at College Station, Md., near this
city. He came to this country with the
commission sent out by Corea years ago
to investigate the progress of civilization
in foreign countries, and decided to make
his home here. His persistent refusals
to return caused the confiscation of large
estates owned by him. Becoming inter
ested in agricultural advancement he
studied at tbe Maryland Agricultural col
lege. After being graduated last June he
obtained a position in the agricultural
department, where he devoted himself to
translating and compiling data concern
ing agriculture in China, Japan and Co
res, Su Penn was 40 years of age. Re
eently he endeavored to obtain permission
to visit his native country, but tbe re
quest was re.'aed.

Cleveland, O., Oct. 24. There is con
siderable trouble in several of tbe natural
gas towns of Ohio over the fuel question.
Notice was served Thursday on the
factories at Lima by the natural gas
company that no gas would be furnished
after Nov. 1. The manufacturers at Tif

Potteries Resume the Use of Coal.
The potteries at Kast Liverpool can no
longer depend on gas and they are resum
ing the use of coal. Only private con
sumers are being furnished with gas in
Dayton, and unless the supply is increased
by the drilling of new wells the price will
be increased 25 per cent. The supply at
the wells at the points named is rapidly
decreasing. Co3tly litigation is likely to
ensue at Dayton and Tiffin over franchises
FATAL HUNTING ACCIDENT.
A Mm Hit Instead of a Deer, and Left
to Die by the Hunter.
West Superior, Wis., Oct. 24. An un
fortunate and fatal accident happened a
half mile distant from Dedham, a small
station on the Eastern road, Thursday
evening. hue Adam Miller and J. L.
Showers were hunting in that vicinity,
the former observed a movement in the
underbrush, and thinking it was a deer,
fired. A cry of pain followed the shot.
"A Scare That Was Almost Criminal.
Too frightened to investigate,Miller and
his companion fled to tbe station, where
they knew a train was soon due for Supe
rior. This they took and upon arrival
proceeded at once to police headquarters,
where Miller requested Jailor Kent field
to lock him up. This the jailor refused
to do, as there was no charge preferred.
Later a dispatch was received stating
that the man who had been shot was dead.
His name was D. Sitlz.
Freak of an Insane Man.
CoLVMBls, O., Oct 24.- Martin Rods, a
German, en route with bis wife and baby
from California to Pennsylvania, leaped
from a Miami express going thirty miles
an hour while the train was near South
Charleston. He placed his baby in his
wife's arms, and opening tbe window,
dived out into the darkness. The train
was stopped and' backed to the place
wkeie the affair occurred, but no trace of
tbe man could b? found. He was seen
to' alight on his feet and then run
away. The man was evidently insane.
Tbe passengers made up a purse for tbe

of Wesleyan Methodists is now in session
in this city. ReT. G. P. Riley, pastor of
the church at Marion, Iud., for forty
three years a minister, presented himself
as adelegate from the Illinois conference,

Speech Since Becoming the Tory Lead
er John Dillon's Advice to the I1UI1
Tenants Kaiser William's Whiskers
Give Berlin Something to Talk About
. European Notes.
London, Oct. 24. Martin Flavin has
been selected by the McCarthyites to con
test the seat from Cork made vacant by
the death of Parnell. When Michael
Davitt arrived in Dublin yesterday from
Queenstown be was driven rapidly to the
headquarters of the Irish National Federa
tion, where he was received by the leading
members of the McCarthyites now in the
city. A prolonged consultation was held,
the result of which was the announcement
that Davitt had consented to stand for tbe
northern division of Kilkenny, the seat in
the house of commons which was n-ade
vacant by the death of Sir John Pope
What Would Have Pleased Davitt
It is known that nothing would have
pleased Davitt better than to succeed to
Parnell's place, as a triumphant rounding
off of his long antagonism to Parnell. But
be did not care to risk defeat. Davitt's
election to the seat of Sir John Pcpe Hen
nessy may possibly raise a question as to
whether he will be admitted to parlia
ment No Irish member of parliament
has ever been in a convict prison, so far
as tbe public are aware. For this reason
Davitt was rejected in the selection of tbe
royal commission on labor, and it remains
to be seen whether the Tories and their
Liberal Unionist allies will be any less
squeamish when Davitt presents himself
as a member from North Kilkenny.
Kalfour Attacks the G. O. M.
Balfour delivered his opening speech
last night as leader of the majority in the
house ot commons, at Bury, in Lauca-
shire, a Liberal-Union stronghold repre
sented in parliament by Sir Henry James.
His reception was enthusiastic, aud he ad
dressed a crowded audience.
Tbe Liberal "Motley Throng."
Balfour said that prosperity would
soon follow the social peace now prevail
ing in Ireland. He was confident that
the Liberals would not confide perma
nently in the ill assorted and motley
throng, bound together by no common
principle, and aiming at no common ob
ject, which Gladstone desired to enlist
under tbe home rule banner. Tbe great
mass did not want home rule, but Glad,
stone promised them indefinite loot, and
bribed each section to help htm take the
the fortress; but his specious promises
would not deceive the community.
DILLON'S ADVICE TO THE IRISH.
The Tories Quote It and tbe Liberals
Don't Like It.
London, Oct 24. John Dillon, at the
Wexford convention, advised the farmers
to ignore both the Ashbourne act and the
Balfour land purchase act in the settle
ment of the land question. He said that
when Irishmen had obtained control of
the country the farmers would get much
bettei terms from the landlords.
How It Affects English Parties.
This advice has caused a decided sensa
tion among English Liberals. The Tories
are quoting Dillon's utterances as show
ing that the aim of the home rule move
ment is confiscation, and that tbe most
generous movement of relief and assist
ance to the tenantry would not be ac
cepted as sufficient by the agitators. Re
ports from all parts of Ireland show that
the tenants are very generally claiming
the benefits of the land purchase act, and
it is thought that fact may have alarmed
THE KAISER'S CLEAN SHAVE.
Those Whitkers Sacrificed to Please
Berlin, Oct. 24. The kaiser's conclu
sion to be clean shaven again, all but his
mustache, is said to be prompted by the
earnest objections of the empress to the
change in Mb appearance. He has also, it
is whispered, been much annoyed by hav
ing his whiskers frequently and painfully
pulled by tbe younger members of his
household, on one occasion to the uncon
trollable delight of a French nurse, who
