Scene Witnessed hy o.OOO Persons to the

Netting the Professor Sl.OOO A Tri
umph of Humanity 0er Horseflesh -The
Chkaoo, Dec. 10. It took Professor
Oscar R. Glcnson, the noted horse tamer,
just an hour anil a quarter last night to
subjugate the stallion Julius, the "Ghost,"
the man-eating animal, that has been t lie
terror of central Illinois for half a decade,
and through whose previous tendencies
half a dozen men are minns fingers or
thumbs. Five thousand people at from $1
to $2 a head packed Battery II, where the
feat was accomplished, and 3.000 more were
on the outside at 8 o'cloc k, when the police
authorities ordered the doors to be closed.
The Timer l-nterw the Ring.
Karlier in the day it had taken four
hours to get a sack over the head of the
terror, and lead him two blocks from the
stables to the battery, where he was placed
within an inclosure surrounded by a wood-
en fence eight feet in height. During the
afternoon lie varied the monotony by kick
ing down one enrire side of the inclosure.
lrnfcssor Gleason entered the ring at S:4.,
After l.erov 1'avne and G. W. la'ihcyhad
been selected as judges, and J. Steiner,
secretary of the American Trotting associ
ation, as referee.
flow He Managed the Animal.
The tamer carried a whin in his left
hand and a bull dog revolver loaded with
blank cartridges in his right, while in the
outT circle ten attendants with bull dog
revolvers loaded with bullets, stood guard.
prepared to perforate the animal it occa
sion demanded. (rleason s tac tics were
simply an alternate cracking of the whip
and discharging of the M:K cartridges.
For the first ten minutes the animal wa-
inclined to kick and bite, and tileason had
hard work to avoid his attacks.
The Terror Hegins to ( aim Iown.
At the end of fifteen minutes lie wa
stroking the terror's neck; in twenty he
was holding his mane. Ten minutes later
he had put on its neck the first halter it
had ever worn; in forty minutes Julius
came and went as commanded: in fifty he
permitted his tamer to place his hand in
his mouth, meanwhile standing as meek as
a Shetland pony.
Final Triumph of the Professor.
Just an hour from the time that (ileason
entered the ring the terror was harnessed
to an open, one-seated buggy, and for fif
teen minutes the professor drove him
around the ring, while the audience howled
itself hoarse. Afterwards the animal, now
as docile as a luibe. permitted stnimrc nt
teitdanta to lead it luic k to the stables.
SELF-GOVERNMENT FOR ERIN.

Dri'l.ix, Dec. V.l.--The new newspaper,
l lip Irish Independent, after several inef
fectual attempts had licen made to issue it,
o.ving to difficulty with the printing ma
chinery, made its first appearance yester
day morning. In its oieiiiiig editorial it
says: ul)cprived of the advocacy of a jour

most ungrateful anil meanest ac t of pol it
Cal turncoat treachery in newspaper an
nals, and chafing under the grossest mis
representations by pens in organs of scur
rility and deadly treason to thennity ot
the Irish race and our martyred leader, our
countrymen have awaited with eagerness
the hour when a national mouthpiece will
be at their service and they will no longer
be compelled to sit dumb while their
travestied motives are malignantly as
persed and the policy that was carried to
the date of victory by Parnell distorted and
What the Flat form Mean.
"Our objects are: First, national nelf
govcrnment; second, land""" law reform;
third, local self-government; fourth, the
extension of the parliamentary and mu
nicipal franchise; fifth, the development
and encouragement of labor and the indus
trial interests of Ireland, and sixth, the
reinstatement in their holdings of all ten
ants unjustly evicted during the agitation.
Our definition of national self-government
is the restitution to the Irish people of the
right to manage their own affairs in a par
liament elected by the people of
Ireland, which shall have full power
over Irish affairs, including laws relating
to the ownership and occupat ion of land,
and that any acts passed by it shall be
subject only to the, veto of the crown or
the representative of the crown in Ire
land. The Irish executive should lie de
pendent upon parliament, which should
have control of the constabulary and the
appointment of judges and magistrates.
The power of the lord lieutenant to con
trol the constabulary should be repealed."
Looks Like a "Physical Force" Scheme.
Among the news items is a statement
that a large package liearing no address
was recently posted in the Dublin post-otic-e.
The sorters of the mail noticed the
absence of an address, and while examin
ing the package found a fuse protruding
from it. The postal authorities were im
mediately notified, and the package was
taken to Dublin castle, where it was found
to contain a quantity of dynamite.

that the professor was. within one hour,

order to get him oiu and to the stable in
the rear of the Palmer house lassoes were
used to shackle his feet and reduce the
habit he has of using them too freely to
short fidgety steps. A sack drawn over
his head and blindfolding him enabled the
attendants to tie his month so that he
could not use his teeth. Thus manacled
and muzzled, with six attendants walking
la-side him, the savage brute was con
ducted to the suible. There he was put in
a itrong stall. A big manillu rope was
parsed around his laxly and securely tied
and then fastened to heavy posts on each
Kide of him. When liberated from the las
soes and muzzle he attempted to kick
down the sides and door of his stall and
tear to pieces the wire netting in front of
