Los POX, Nov. 10. Yesterday was Lord
t . Mayor's day in London, and was in one
Important - respect a disappointment.
From time immemorial the "Lord May
or's show" has been one of the bights of
London. The parade in honor of the
Lord Mayor is always a brilliant specta
cle, and one that Londoners flock by
tens of thousands to witness. But yes
terday it rained cats and dogs, and the
new official, David Evans, Esq., a Welsh
man, in whose honor his fellow-countrymen
were going to "do themselves
proud," had to bs content with the in
door part of the ceremonies, which wore
carried out in due order. The most im
portant of these was the banquet at,Guild
hall, for here Premier Salisbury, as is the
custom, gave some hints of governmental
An Optlrolat as to War.
Upon rising to make his speech Lord
Salisbury first paid graceful tributes to
the memories of his late colleagues, the
Right Hon. W. H. Smith and the Right
Hod. H. C. Raikes. He eulogized Bal
four's admini aration of Irish affairs, and
then went on to say: "There is not a sin
gle speck of cloud on the European hori
zon containing within it anything injuri
ous to the prospects of peace. It seems to
me that tbe warfare of nations, judging
from the interest they take in the subject,
is slowly changing .its field. It is indus
trial competition which io these days oc
cupies its chaucellories and its diplomac
ies. The great subjects of consideration
are those treaties of commerce expiring
next year. Tbe great question is, what
tariff will the various nations adopt in
respect to each other. I think I can hold
out to England, as regards material wel
fare the ruont promising anticipations, so
far as present prospects go.
England to stick to Free Trade.
"Respecting the industrial warfare,
which has for its weapons protective leg
islation, and for its prizes the markets of
the various countries, I am afraid we
must be content to occupy for a time a pe
culiar and Isolated position. The cause
of protection only sinks to rise. Tbe elec
tions in -America did show a
slight reaction, but it has spent
its force. Before very long, I think,
we will have tbe advantage of being tbe
Athanaaius contra mundum of free trade;
bat no doubt a commercial community
like England will not falter in its attach
ment to free trade. I don't ascribe to tree
trade any special credit in that respect,
because tbe lact is that articles respecting
which we should have exercised protec
tion, if we exercised it at all, are mainly
articles of first consumption bearing on
the necessities of the whole of our populaj
tion, which is an absolute guarantee that
we will never return to protection."
Will Mot Let Co of Egypt.
Regarding the foreign policy of England,
Lord Salisbury said: "The policy of the
government regatding Egypt will not be
changed. Mr. Gladstone's statement at
Newcastle was singularly unfortunate and
inopportune. It has given heart to all
who were unfriendly to England. It has
given pain to all who value the prosperity
of Egypt. England has made great sacri
fices, shed most precious blood, and scat
tered treasure freely, in order to rescue
Egypt from t he evils which have overtaken
her. If Eugland acted alone, that matter
was not her fault. Now that blood has
been spilt, and the treasure spent, she
cannot allow it to be all swept away like
last year's almanac, and su Her Egypt to
return to the anarchy which would be a
condition of danger to all its neighbors,
like a few years ago."
Created a Decided Sensation.
Lord Salisbury created a decided sensa
tion by this positive declaration that there
was no thought of evacuating Egypt, and
It was regarded as a direct challenge to
Gladstone on that issue, which Gladstone
bad raised at Newcastle. The lord mayor's
banquet is non-partisan, but ministers
usually take the opportunity to drop
significant hints of what their policy is to
be, especially when it is likely to be grati
fying to the holders of consols, such as
most of those present at a lord mayor's
banquet generally are. Gladstone's ut
' terance at Newcastle has been received
with such decided disfavor by Liberals as
well as Tories that tbe applause which
welcomed Lord Salisbury's emphatic
declaration was not a surprise.
HANDSOME GIFT TO WALES.
A Present from the Dramatic Profession
on Hla Birthday.
Lokdok, Nov. 10. Some time ago a
movement was started among tbe.dra
mtic profession lookiug to the formation
of a fund to purchase a present to be giv
en to the prince yesterday, the fiftieth an
niversary of bis birth, in recognition of
his patronage of the drama. The sub
scriptions to the fund poured iu rapidly,
and those having tbe affair in band de
cided upon a gold cigar box as a suitable
token of their regard. ,
One Hundred Ounces of Gold.
Yesterday Sir Augustus ' Harris, Mr.
John Hare, Mr. Bancroft, Mr. Beerbobm
" Tree, and Mr. D'Oyly Carte, representing
the theatrical profession, proceeded from
London to Sandringbam. where they pri
vately presented their gift to tbe prince.

A Crime Thnt Further strains Relations
with the Vatican.
Rome, Nov. 10. This city was startled
.Sunday by the announcement that some
Bcoundrel or scoundrels had desecrated
the tomb f the Countess Mirafiori, the
morganatic wife of the late King Victor
Emauuel. Following close upon the
Pantheon incident which occurred on Oct.
2 last, the present outrage has created an
other burst of indignation and has again
dangerously strained the relations ex
isting between the government and the
Vatican. Tbe tascals implicated in out
raging the tomb of the Countess MiraAori
forced it or en and set fire to the coffin,
evidently with the object of consuming
the remains of the lady.
Charc;f-s and Counter-Chrrgcs.
The corps-e was not burned because of
the metal case in which it is enclosed.
Opinions aie divided as to the cause of
this sucrileg. The supporters of the gov
ernment, who are in the veiy large major
ity,, claim tiiat it is the worL either of
paid agents of the Vatican or of fanatics
who are inn nsed at the fact that there is
a possibility of the pope being compelled
to leave Roue. Ou tbe other hand, the
friends of M e Vatican say that they can
sse in the M irafiori incident further evi
dence of the ( esire of the Italian govern
ment, through secret agents, to increase
the bitter, dangerous feeling already ex
pressed against the Vatican.
Another Move of the Irish Priests.
Cork, Nov 10. A meeting of priests
i hs been call 3d to consider tbe next step
to be taken relative to the suppression of
the Parnellito movement. There is now
little doubt that Redmond will attempt to
prevent the seating of Flavin on the
ground of clerical intimidation and undue
influence in the election. If Redmond
does not take such a step it is possible
that the Tories may do so in behalf of
Captain Sarsln ld.
Say Iteconc illation Is Imposntble.
London, Nov. 10. William Redmond
is reported as s ating that reconciliation
bat ween the I'arnellites and McCarthy
ites was im possible unless the latter ac
cepted the principles for which the Par
nellites were struggling, and rejected
from their ranks tbe men who were re
sponsible for hounding Parnell to the
grave. It is said that McDermott, who
horsewhipped ealy, threatens to repeat
Buffalo for English Parka.

FATAL FIRE AT DENVER.
Fonr Hen and Thirty-Four Valuable
Dexveh, Nov. 10. A terrible fire in
which four men and thirty-four horses
were suffocated was discovered in the
Mansions stables, 18 '6 Lawrence street, at
a few minutes last 3 o'clock yesterday
morning. The dead are: Thomas Bowen,
Peoria, Ills.; George Richards, Lineoln,
Neb.; David Elmore; Otto Helbin, St.
Louis, Mo. They were sleeping in rooms
over the office of the livery stable, and
were employed in the Cable restaurant.
There were four others sleeping in the
place, bnt all escajied with tbe exception
of the four named above.
Fonnd Piled In a Heap.
George Richards was the only one of the
four unfortunates who lost tbeir lives
that was burned el ternally. His face was
horribly burned end blackened and his
hair was siuged from his head. David
iCImore managed to get out in the ball
before he was overcome by the heat and
smoke, and as the firemen were peering
through the smoke and beat searching for
any spark of fire 1 hat had escaped tbeir
notice one of them stumbled over the
body, which was tLe first notification the
firemen had that al. had not escaped from
the building. Penetrating farther into
the building the fin men found the bodies
of Bowen, Richards, and Helbin piled one
upon the other upon the floor of their

The scenes about the burning building
were horrifying as the smoke rolled

horses were kept, ticenting danger their
cries of alarm and fright were pitiful,
and in their efforts t escape they climbed
into their muugers kicked down their
stalls and some managed to break away

burned were the most valuable in the
barn and tbeir average value is estimated
at tl50 each.

A Gang of Letter-Box. Robbers
A HOT PURSUIT AND ALONG ONE.
Followed AH Over the Country the
Crouka Are Marked Down by Their
Proceeding and Fonr Had Men Mill
Take a Long Penitentiary 'Beat from
Their Unrighteous Labors Mail Sto.ea
from Boxes In Many Big Cities.
NEW YOKK, Nov. 10. Henry Armstrong
yesterday started from here for St. Louis
nnder arrest on a charge of stealing from
a letter box there a draft drawn by the
Monks & Son's Distilling company. Arm
strong is the fourth member of a gang of
letter-box thieves on whose track post
oflice inspectors have been' for over a year.
They first began operations in August?
1S90, in which month the postoflice depart
ment at Washington began receiving no
tifications of a scries of letter-box rob
b ios. The first information came from
tha far west. It stated that a gang of
thieves was evidently at work on a large
scale. The postmaster at Denver reported
that a street box in that town had been
fonnd broken open one morning, with lid
and lock goni
Complaints from All Over the Weat.
Since that occurrence complaints have
been received by him daily from business
men of Denver that letters containing
checks, drafts, and money were inter
cepted and their contents extracted. Then
an official communication came from St.
Louis chronicling the robbery of a letter
box atrl the disappearance of a lock there.
Next Chicago swung in line, followed by
St. Panl. In each instance the postmaster
reportel tbe bre.iking open of a single
letterbox, followed by a wholesale tl eft
of letters. Suddenly the department was
paralyzed by receiving exactly the same
report f:-om the postmaster of the cap
ital. This was in February last.
Operating in Gotham Also.
The case was put in the bands of fonr
postoffiae inspectors, who were just begin
ning their work when this city made its
first complaint. Detectives were at once
put to watching thi! letter boxes here, and
tbe thieves evidently discovered the fact,
as no more robberies were committed in
New York. The four inspectors detailed
on the case began their travels in search
of the culprits, and no more than reached
oue city when a story of a fresh robbery
started them for another. At every town
there was sufficient evidence to show that
the work was done by the same hands, but
that was all. Even the checks which bad
been extracttd from letters and cashed
noon forged indorsements or by altera
tion "to harT." failed to give the insp. tt
ors any clue to Work upon.
HOW THEY WERE RUN DOWN.
A Tip Obtained Thronglt a Convict In
The rascals were good forgers and they
used their skill in thi to cover their
tracks. It was while cuasing from city 10
city that the inspectors got the tip which
led to tbe arrest of the gang. In Detroit
it was learned tbat Prentiss Tiller, alias
Charles Price, was doing five years in the
Michigan penitentiary for forging a
check which he had stolen from a letter,
and that he was occasionally visited by
lriends who bad been arrested with him
at Cleveland on a different complaint, bnt
discharged for lack of evidence after tbeir
pictures had been takeu. Tbe inspectors
got these pictures and found that the men
were J. K. Strait on; Charles Hubbard,
alias Charles Diamond; T. C. Boalan,
aiias T. Clayton, and Henry Armstrong,
all well-known forgers and crooks.
On the Trail or the Scoundrels.
Through the prison officials at Jackson,
Mich., Hubbard was placed, and the in
spectors found tbe other three men with
him. They were westward bound, and
were kept nnder surveillance. When they
reached Den-r the party consisted of all
except Armstrong. Inspector Williams
took the tree under his eye at Denver and
followed them to Nw Orleans, where a
letter box Was immediately broken. From
New Orleans they went to Atlanta. An
other letter-box was broken open in At
lanta. Three Worthies Takeu In.
Then tbe inspectors were certain. On
Nov. 2 Hubbtrti took a small sachel to
the expiess onice and was arrested there.
Hubbard's two companions. Si rat ton and
Boalan, were arrested at the hotel, and
the three men were takeu to policj head
quarters and searched. They bad sixty
live letter-box keys, four bottles of eras
ing fluid, two boxes of craven colors, a
number of raws and eleven files of var
ious sizes. Besides these the inspectors
found on them about $-'5,000 worth of
their own checks drawn against deposits
of tbeir plunder and returned to them as
Talked tbe Matter Over.
The three men were locked up, and to
secure additional evidence Inspector Ja
cobs got himself arrested us a counter
feiter. He was put in a cell between
St rat ton and B alan, aud heard them talk
the matter over and agreeing upon a
straight story. It was decided by them
to pretend not to know each other. In
spector Jacobs proved an alibi aud got
our, coming direct to New York to look
for Armstrong, tho other member of the
gang. Saturday morning Inspector Ja
cobs ran right iuto Armstrong on Suffolk
street. He took him into custody and had
him committed to the Ludiow Street j til
Evidence of His Gollt.
Armstrong bad two checks in bis pock
et which be bad extracted from tbe stolen
letters. The indorsements on both of
them bad been forged by Armstrong, aud
oue bad been raised from $23 54 to $'J34.54
iu a very clever way indeed. Yesterday
Armstrong was taken to St. Louis. Hub
bard and Mrattoa are charged with par
ticipating in the same forgery with Arm
strong, and Boalan is on his way to Nash
ville irom Atlanta to answer for a similar
crime. The four men are all old offenders.
