O'Brien's Views on the Arrest
of Irish Leaders,
It Bill Greatly Strengthen the nationalist
Cause in America,
Hot a Sign of Despondency at the Headquar
ters of tbe Land League at Dublin.
"- — Epeclal Dispatches to The Moasisa ______
London, Sept. 19.— The arrest of the
Irish leaders yesterday still occupies a con
spicuous place in the newspapers through
out the United Kingdom. Various explana
tions are surmised to account for Balfour's
sudden stroke The commonest one on the
1 art of the Liberal press is that its object
was to prevent Dillon and O'Brien from
going to America to arouse American sym
pathy and solicit American aid. The Con
servatives, however, scout the idea that
Balfour could have acted from such a
motive. They see in his present policy a
laudable effort to prevent the recurrence of
disorder in Ireland. On the whole, one gets
sthe5 the impression that the predominant pubiie
opinii n is so far extremely doubtful of the
wisdom or expediency of the Government's
O'Brien, in an interview this morning,
said he could not imagine what infatuation
had driven the Government to make the
arrests. It is easy to see, he thought, what
they are driving at. They are making a
supreme effort to crush out the organization
of tenants f r concerted action. This they
expect to accomplish, be thought, by simul
taneous clearances on all the estates where
_ the plan of campaign bad been adopted. The
evicted tenants they calculate on thus hav
ing helpless at their feet.
"But cau such a policy be successful?"
O'Brien was asked.
'"No," he replied. It is in my opinions
riece of inconceivable folly, but it seems
clear to me that this is what the Govern
ment proposes to attempt"
A.N' ABSri'.D CALCULATION.
"It is held by man)*," the correspondent
said, "that the main purprse of Balfour in
making the arrest? at this time is to prevent
Dillon and you from making your contem
plated trip to America."
"' That does not seem n probable theory to
me," replied O'Brien. "Uut it it is true. 11
more absurd calculation never was made,
even by the pto-eut Chief Secretary of Ire
land. Far from preventing our appeal to
America, lie has made it for us in a most
striking and impressive way. The story of
these arrests will ring through America like
a trumpet note, compared with which our
voices would have been feeble and inef
fective. All Irish- Americans know that Tip
perary is the key to the light for Ireland.
They will take care to frustrate the das
tardly calculations of the Government"
A BENEFICIAL Or- km:.
" What do you think," the correspondent
asked, "will be the ultimate effect of tho
Government's present course on the cause
- " It will i-Jaltogetber beneficial," O'Brien

Dublin, Sept. 19.— The busiest place in
Dublin to-day is the headquarters of the
Land League. Tno Nationalists are calling
in a constant stream to learn the latest
new;. Dillon, who came on to Dublin last
night, is the center of an animated circle.
No note of despondency is detected in the
utterances of the leaders. On the other
band, there seems to be fresh confidence
and new enthusiasm. Instead of regarding
the arrests as a calamity, the prevailing ten
dency is to rejoice at them as a blessing in
disguise, The action of Balfour the Nation
alists hold to have been an immense tactical
j ler for the Government. Tbey are sat
-^lrfiji'd that it will lesult in signal advantages
to tbe Irish cause.
The inability of Dillon and O'Brien to
make the proposed trip to America is much
regretted, lint the plan of presenting the
true state of Ireland to the American pub
lic by means of speeches by leading Irish
orators has not been abandoned. Who will
be selected to go to America has not yet
been determined. In O'Brien's absence it
was considered not desirable to come to any
decision in so important a matter. When
O'Brien reaches Dublin, a consultation will
be held by him, Dillon and other leaders to
discuss and decide upon the matter.
John Cullmane and Michael Dalton, mem
ber* of the National League, have _been
arrested. T. D. Sullivan will probably
make a tour of America.

The Freeman's Journal, Nationalist, says:
If the Government's object was to stop the

arrests are a shameful confession of weak

A Denunciation of the Reports of German
Recognition of Slave-Trading.
Berlin, Sept. 16.— Lieutenant Schmidt
telegraphs officially from Zanzibar that
neither at Dares, Salaam nor at Bagamoyo
has any proclamation with referenco to
slave-trading been Issued ; that no licenses
have been granted to dealers; that no actions
against freed slaves have ever occurred on
the coast, and that the statement that Zan
zibar dealers had gone to the coast to engage
in the slave-trade Is unfounded. Schmidt
says that these reports are malicious false
hoods, which are being circulated in the
hope of creatine an ill-feeling against the
O .mans. Germany is determined tn con

The Alhambra Fire.
Madrid, Sept. 19.— 1t is officially stated
that it will cost $70,000 to repair the portions

that liie loss is irreparable. New walls and

Rare Old Coins and Curies Being Exten
Ottawa, Sept 19.— Superintendent Bell
of the United States Secret Service in
Toronto, accompanied by two detective offi
cers, have in hand one of the most extraor
dinary cases of counterfeiting in America
for many years. The investigation so far
progressed indicates that a regularly organ
ized gang of counterfeiters has been at work
for yeai's manufacturing base old coius, plate
and other curios. It has been discovered
that some of these counterfeits have been
manufactured in the neighborhood of
Toronto, and expressed to the United
States. The investigation has been con
ducted quietly for six months, but as yet
tho counterfeiters have not been run to
earth. When the first counterfeit was dis
covered it created a great deal of excitement
anions dealers in old coins, and the Numis
matist Association of the United States
started secret service officers to investigat
ing the matter and that action has so far
resulted iv the discovery of extensive coun
terfeiting in the States and Canada. The
one-dcllar issue of 1804 was recalled, and
four were only 1. -ft In circulation. Eacli of
these coins is now valued by numismatists
at $600. and it was a counterfeit ol cue ol
these that led to the first discovery. Detec
tives succeeded in locating several mints in
Louisiana, and among the stuff secured were
many counterfeits of old coins.
While inquiry was being prosecuted, an in
cident occurred in Michigan Prison, at
Michigan City, that threw light on the work.
In lhis prison there is confined a notorious
rleiter, l'eter McCartney. A short
lime ago ii letter ws^rj received at the prison
from McCartney's wifo to her husband, in
which was enclosed an old Roman coin. The
letter explained that the coin was sent to
Pete as a souvenir. Ihe officiate discovered
the coin was counterfeit, the Secret Service
men were notified and a detective was
placed on Mrs. Cartney's track. lie discov
ered ''tat she lived at Tioga, 111., and had as
an at ociate Dr. Baker, who was in the
habit of paying periodical visits to Niagara
Fulls and Toronto, driving to Oakville,
where lie sent small packages by express to
different dealers in old coins in various cities.
A United States detective was dispatched to
Oakville, and only a short distance from the
village, in the garret of an unoccupied build
ing, he found almost a complete counterfeit
ing outfit. Superintendent Hell came to
Toronto to follow up this clew.

Washington*, Sept. 19.— Tho filibuster

The Democrats had expected that an at
tempt would lie made to confine them in the
House by closing the doors, which would
have resulted in trouble, but this was not
done. All the Democrats except two or
three were out of the House, and many of
them were in the corridors, consumed
with curiosity, but they were afraid to poke
their noses within the hall, lest they be
counted for a quorum. Mr. Ilolir.an peeped

him in, amid the applause of the Republi

they kept nut of sight.

How Bulli-n Is Paid For.
Washington, Sept. 19.— Acting Secretary
Batchellor to-day sent to the Senate a com
munication In response to Plumb's resolu
tion as to the manner of paying for silver
bullion. He says the checks drawn In pay
ment for silver bullion pass through the
New York Clearing-house, the same at other
checks drawn on the Assistant Treasurer
at Mew York. It was necessary, he said, at
the time the law took effect to Issue notes of
large denominations in payment for silver

The Bankruptcy Bill Placed on the Calendar.
Measures Passed. '
Washington, Sept. 19.— the Senate
Plumb's resolution to recommit the Bank
ruptcy Bill to the Judiciary Committee with
Instructions to amend by making it apply to
voluntary bankruptcy only, was taken up,
and alter discussion was placed on . the cal
endar. The matter will not be brought up
again this session.
Voorhces introduced a joint resolution for
the immediate Increase of silver money by
the purchase and coinage _of 10,000,000
ounces of silver at a price below $1.2829
within tbe next thirty days, this purchase
to be in addition to the amount required by
the existing law. Referred to the Finance
The Senate then went into executive ses
When the doors were reopened the Senate
passed a number of bills, including the
Douse bill to discontinue the coinage of S3
and $1 gold pieces and 3 cent nickel pieces.
The House bill to reduce the amount of
United States bonds required of national
banks and restore to the channels of trade
the excessive accumulations of lawful money
Held in the Treasury, having been reached
on the calendar, Sherman said he believed
its passage would tend much to quiet even
the present agitation in the money market.
Undoubtedly the effect of the bill would be
not only to prolong but encourage the na
tional bank system.
Plumb feared the bill would finally result
in the eon ion of currency. While ho
agreed that the national banking system, as
a system of discount and deposit was wise
and ought to be continued, it was plain to be
seen that it was not long to be a system hav
ing any relation to currency. The banks
themselves wanted to get out of that busi
ness. Congress could not afford to let the
national bank currency disappear without
supplying a currency in its place. lie be
lieved the business of the country to be in
greater peril than for years Irom lack of
sufficient circulating medium.
Power moved to stiikeout the first tion
reducing to $10,000 the deposit of bouds to
retain charters. ,
After further discussion tho bill went
over till to-morrow.

. -i _>;■:
London, Sept. 19.— Advices from Hiogo,
Japan, state that the Turkish man-of-war
Ertogroul lias foundered at sea and 500 of
her crew wen; drowned.
Osman Pasha and Ali Pasha, envoys of
the Sultan to the Emperor of Japan, are
among the drowned.
Osman Pasha, whose bravo stand against
the Russians at Plevna gave him a high rank
as a fighting General, had been on an official
visit to Japan, having been intrusted with a
special mission from lite Sultan to the Mi
kado. The progress of the Ertogroul since
she left Constantinople for the east, many
mom lis ago, has been most ludicrous. Leav
ing Turkey short of money it was under
stood supplies were to be sent her at the
ports at which she was to coal, with the re
sult that her sojourn in those countries was
Indefinitely prolonged, as the officers at
home were unable to keep their promises.
In this way she lost some of her crew and
her officers were many times on the verge
of rebellion, induced by starvation, while the
Governors of the cities visited refused to
remit harbor dues and grant other privileges
of the right due her as a Turkish man-of
war, on the ground that she was sailing
in a false character, as there was not powder
enough on board to enable her crew to fire
the regulation salutes. After many adven
tures, only worthy of an opera-bouffe navy,
the Ertogroul finally arrived in Japanese
waters. It was on her return voyago that
the disaster occuned.
The Ertogroul was built at Constantino
ple in 15 .3. She was a wooden steam frigato
of 2314 tons' burden, 250 feet lone, 48.9
breadth of beam and had a draught of 23.6
feet. She carried an armament of twenty
one 6-inch, 3-ton, and twenty -l ;_i-incli breech
loading cuns. She had a horse-power of
600, and could steam ten knots an hour.
Osman Pasha (Ghazi) was a Turkish Gen
eral, born at Tokat, Asia Minor, in 1832.
lie began his education in a preparatory
school in Constantinople, under the su
pervision of his brother, Hussian
Kll'eiidi, who ' was professor of Ara
bic in the, institution. He entered
the army as a Lieutenant in 18j3; was ap
pointed a Captain in the Imperial Guard at
Constantinople at the close of the Crimean
war; was created Major in 1866; Colonel in
18611, and went into the Turko-Servian
war as a Brigadier-General. By an Im
tcrial hade he was for gallant
conduct promoted to the rank of
Sluschir or Field Marshal. He served in the
war between Russia and Turkey, and was
at the battle tf Plevna in 1877, and for his
conduct there was given the name of Ghazi,
or Victorious. December 10, -1877, lie
made an unconditional surrender .of
Plevna to the Russians, and was made
prisoner, but was released in 1878, and re
turning to Constantinople was made Com
mander-in-chief of the Imperial Guard.
Since then he has served in different cap
acities, and on December 2, 18.2, he was
made Minister of War, with tho title of
IN A HURRICANE.
The Ship Ch-lleag.r Has a Terrible Experi
'-.--'ence at Sea.
Boston, Sept. _9.— ship Challenger
of Bath, before reported, put in here in dis
tress to-day. She has nothing but fore and
main lower musts, with fore and main yards
standing. Captain Thompson reports hav
ing experienced adverse winds nearly the
whole time after leaving West Hartlepool
until, In the hurricane of August 31st, eight
men were lost overboard and four injured.
During the threatening weather just pre
ceding the hurricane he shortened most of
tho sails, and when the wind struck the
ship all hands were aloft hauling in the
others. The jibs tilbd and curried away
the ji-borm top-mast and the topgallant
mast, and the men were either thrown into
the sea or landed ou portions of the
wreckage, a few falling to the deck injured.
H. C. McKeim had his left leg broken ;
Thomas Quinn, two ribs fractured; Seaman
Ramon, his right leg broken. Seaman Bunk
was hauled In from tho sea badly bruised.
The following were cast overboard and 1 st:

Winvern of Germany. At 5 o'clock in the
afternoon the wind blew 100 miles an hour,
and the furled sails were blown out of the
gaskets, anil by (i. 45 o'clock in the evening
the mizzen-mast was gone. Everything on
deck was smashed or carried away, and the
ship left in tiie condition reported above and
at the mercy of the waves. The ship labored
heavily in tie trough of the sea until the
wind moderated at 2 o'clock in the after
noon, when such men as were uninjured set
about putting her in as god condition its
possible. It required three days. Mean
time the captain attended to the wounded.
When the wreckage was cleared away sails
were set on the remaining spars and the ves
sel kept away for Boston, the nearest port.
The hull is in gocd condition, notwithstand
ing the severe straining, and she probably
will be taken to Bath for repairs.

THE SAN FKANCISCO.
Irving M. fcott Thinks the Trial Course Wai
New York, Sept. 19.— Irving SI. Scott
said to-night concerning tho San
Francisco's trial trim "I believe
that the distance was greater than it
was estimated. There is considerable
difference between our figures and those of
the Government board and I have asked the
Secretary of the Navy to order the course to
be resurvej'ed. The San Francisco steamed
tne last -0 knots in less than one hour and
I claim that under favorable circumstances
she can do -OJ knots an hour. I can account
for the marked difference In the figures on
no other basis tnan that the cruiser covered
more ground than she should have done."

I have used the nam . Kkvi r.oir. ., and Sad

anil cure of acne, pimples, etc. Some time sine
my brother was troubled with a ringworm of a very
malignant type, and the caustics Uiat were applied

removed It. A friend of mine was troubled with a
running ear and au ulcer In his sea: that suppurated
continually, Physician? and their remedies proved
useless. At last, his father, arter spending several
hundred dollars in trying to cure his son, tried
Cuticura m i:"iks. and before ten dollars wer_
spent for them my friend was completely cured;
and. with the exception of a small scar lv his scalp,
one would never know of his having had su oh asore. .

used the Cutktba Remedies, and now my skin
and race are as clear as even berore I was affected
with tne disagreeable disease. Many or my friends
who suffered with blood troubles, to whom I _eo>
ommeuded them, are thankful to me.
