London, Sept. .4.— Michael Davitt wiil
begin in the Labor World to-morrow a re
markable series of disclosures to the effect
(liar, the fabrication of political events that
began with the dynamite explosions at
Die House of Parliament, the Nelson
column in Trafalgar square and the
underground railway, same years
ago, and ended with the Pnrnell
commission, was the result of a deep laid
cons; iraey on the part of the Government
to connect Parnell with these outrages and
s ■ destroy him and his movement together.
Davitt goes to the root of tlie matter. Pro
ceeding to divulge the secret of the dyna
mite conspiracy he showed that it was only
after the hiring of James McDerraott that
the dynamite campaign really began.
lie says: "We shall establish by indis
putable evidence all the charges we now
make; namely, that James McDermott of
Brooklyn organized the dynamite plot in
Cork and Liverpool in the year ISS3, by the
aid of money furnished to him by the British
Consul-General and officials in Dublin Cas
tle ; that McDermott supplied the dynamite to
his dupes, Featherstone, Deasy and others,
and then betrayed them to the police, using
the dynamite in their possession as proof of
♦**E7n?fr- guilt; that McDrfrruott, by bis
own confession and over his own signature,
admitted that he was cognizant of and
a party to tlie dynamite outrage which
occurred in London ; that French, the head
of the Irish constabulary and detectives,
was involved with McDermott in the dyna
mite schemes in Ireland, and that McDer
mott was sent to Montreal in 1883 with the
knowledge and consent of the British Con
sul to organ izc a dynamite plot in that city.
"We will undertake to make goid each
and all of these charges on oath, by wit
nesses who shall he examined before any
tribunal or committee of Investigation the
Hume Secretary may select for that pur-

FOR AND AGAINST.
Farther Testimony Offered in the Bnrcheil
Woodstock, Sept. 24.— The Burchell trial
was continued this morning. The prisoner
slept well and was up in time to perform his
usual careful toilet before being called to
face the Judge and jury. He was ready and
waiting for the sheriff when the latter
arrived in a hack. It had been reported
that Burchell was handcuffed on the way to
and from the court-room, but such is not
the case. He is the quietest, most easy
going prisoner any jailer ever had to do
with, and neither complains norgives trouble
In any way.
There was tho usual great crowd at the
Town Hall entrance to see him pass, aud his
appearance was warmly criticize! by many.
Burchell lias raised up in this community
two clearly defined parties, oue in his iavor
and the other against him. The latter are
more numerous, aud they are having their
own way pretty well during the presenta
tion of the case for the prosecution. But
the prisoner's friends aro stalwart, and
convinced either that he is innocent or that
it will be Impossible to prove him guilty.
There was a great crowd in the court
room, including over 100 ladies. The pris
oner's wife and sister-in-law were not pres

to stand the strain of watching the proceed
Dr. Taylor, the physician who called to
see Believe, 1 _ body when it was found in the
swamp, testified that the clothing was frozen
to the ground. It had lain there four or five
days. His examination showed that Ben
well died of wounds in the head, so located
that it could not be suicide.
On cross-examination the doctor became
considerably "rattled." as it was shown that
his evidence -fore the Coroner as to the
character and appearance of the wounds and
probable time they were Inflicted did not
coincide with that just given.
Dr. Wilford was the uext witness. He
described the appearance of the body
as it lay in the undertaking estab
lishment, and its preparation for the
post mortem. In two or three points
on cross-examination he favored the priso
ner. The shirt on the body was rather
clean and still, seeming in conflict with the
theory that it had been out in a rain-storm
all night. Appearances indicated that lhe
body had not fallen in the position fouud,
but that it had been placed there.
In the afternoon I'elley »vas recalled and
recognized as Burchell's several letters
which were put m evidence. . ' •-.

Frank Pieic--, teller in the bank nt Niagara

cluding eleven English ' sovereigns. This
point the Crown manes to coincide with the
statement of Policy that Benwell, the mur
dered man, had a handiul of sovereigns
An important discovery was made by de
tectives to-day. Burchell's attorneys have
laid great stress on the fact that "F. C- Ben
well" registered at the Commercial Hotel at
Brantfoid on January 13th. To-day two
young men of Branttord confessed that
they made the entry for a joke. This is con
sidered the heavy blow to Burchell.
A DEMOCRATIC PLOT. *--
The Tariff Bill to _c Used to K;ep Congress
in S-ssion Several Week).
WASUIK-TOX, Sept. Some of the
Democrats of ihe House aie seriously dis
cussing the wisdom of filibustering against
the Tariff Bill, probably with the sue ess
which crowned th-.ir efforts in the contested
election cases. Their present plan is to de
tail thirty-five men who represent districts
that are irredeemably or safely Democratic.
These thirty-five men will remain in the
House all the time, to demand the ayes and
noes on every possible pretense. Their
purpose is to force the Republicans to
keep a quorum here. The advantage
they hope to gain is that there are
quite a number of Republican close
aisrricts, and so close that they can
scarcely be carried unless the can
didate himself is actively in the field,
and to keep him he eiu Wash met to
make a quorum doubles his chancas of de
feat Only such Democrats are to be left
here whose districts are unquestionably
safe, so that doubtful districts can be car
ried by those who go away. It is a very
i retty plan and the Democrats will decide
on whether to adopt it or not. As a mat
ter of fact, most of them would rather let
the Tariff Dill go through and adjourn.

John C. Fremont, aud which passed the

he will sign it immediately.
Rodney M. Price was a member of Congress

had gone through the stirring experiences
of early settlers in California. lie was there
during military occupation, assisted in
framing its Constitution and was a member
ot;tlie first City Council of San Francisco,

A NOBLE WOMAN*.
"I was greatly interested," said the ven
erable ex-Governor, with animation, "in
the passage of the bill to grant Mrs. Fre
mont a pension. 1 was Intimately asso
ciated with General Fremont in early days
on lhe Pacific Slope, and 1 know far better
than the generation that has since come
into existence what an immense debt of
gratitude the country owes that man. It
-distresses me beyond expression to hear
that his widow is in need. Mrs. Fremont is
one of the noblest women I ever knew.
Combined with the intellectual force and
acumen of her illustiious father, Senator
Benton of Missouri, she has ail the refilled
feminine graces, and her character Is truly
lovable. Her life and that of her husband
are part of our national history."
Following is the text of a bill passed by
the Senate to-day and which the House
Naval Committee has favorably reported:
"The President is authorized to advance

By a vote of 5 to 4 the House Com
mittee on Judiciary to-day decided to make
a favorable report on the Senate bill for the
forfeiture of the property of the Mormon
Church. The bill was introduced to carry
out a decision of the Supreme Court ot the
United Stales, delivered just before the so
journment of its last term. The bill passed
the Senate, and after it reached the House
Committee on Judiciary hearings were given
to representatives of the Mormon Church in
opposition to ' the measure. There is no
probability of the passage of the bill by the
House this session.
In the case of Michael Shane on appeal
tho Secretary of the Interior has affirmed

own defense, making, however, uo apology
for his previous remarks.
Kennedy, in his speech, referred again to
the pledges in the Republican platform and
iheiact that the Elections Bill nad not yet

this that he had spoken of the broken
pledges. It was not the lault of the House,

Salt Lake, Sept. President Wood
ruff of the .Mormon Church to-day Issued a
manifesto in which, referring to the state
ment in the report of the Utah Commis
sion, tbat plural marriages have been
solemnized during the past year,
and that the leaders of the church
have encouraged a continuance of
polygamy, he enters a sweeping denial that
such things have occurred. President Wood
ruff further says that inasmuch as the
law forbidding polygamy has been pro
nounced constitutional by the court
of last resort, he hereby declares his
intention to submit to those laws and use
his influence with the members of the church
to have them do likewise. There was noth
ing in his teachings to the church, or in the
teachings of his associates during the time
specified, which can reasonably bo con
strued to inculcate or encourage polygamy,
and when any elder lias used language
will, li appeared to convey such teachings, he
has been promptly reproved. The manifesto
concludes: "I now publicly declare that my
advice to the Latter Day Saints is to refrain
from contracting any marriage forbidden by
the law of the laud.''

A Strike in the Yards of the Union Pacific at
' Denver, Sept. 24.— For some time the
Union Pacific at this point has been having
trouble with the switchmen and the block
ade in the yards has been a matter of seri
ous detriment. It is asserted that one of
the chief difficulties has been a disposition
on the part of the switchmen to keep the
yards blockaded in order to exact " tips"
from shippers. Several days ago the
Switchmen's Grievance , : Committee de
manded the removal of Assistant Superin
tendent IJuiiis, making several charges
against him. Hums was suspended pending
an investigation, ■■■ but the charges being
disproved, - General Superintendent Meek
to-day reinstated him. He notified the men
of the trouble that had been complained of,
and said the men unwilling to work cordially
with Burns must leave the service of the
company to-day at noon. At l o'clock this
afternoon not one of the 125 men employed
in the yards put in an appearance. The
company soon secured thirty new men and
has given the striken until to-morrow to
dei-ide what to do. Should they determine
to stay out the officials of the road will get
a complete new force.' They do not antici
pate an extension of the trouble to other
points on the system.

JAMES LICK'S REMAINS.
Statement From Professor Holden Regard-

Mount Hamilton, Sept. 24.— Deferring
to the rumors that the remains of Mr. Lick
were to be removed from their present rest

"So far as I know it is not now pro
posed nor has it ever been proposed by
any person to remove the remains of
tho generous, founder of this observa
tory from the tomb in which they now
rest. .To such proposal or suggestion has
come from any person at Mount Hamilton,
and so far as I know no such proposal
has been made by the Regents of the Uni
versity. It is, however, intended by the Re
gents to expend a large sum of money iv
making the external surroundings of Mr.
Lick's tomb suen as to convey an idea
of the respect due '.-..t0 his" memory.
When , the , University took possession
of the observatory, the surroundings of this
tomb were lacking in dignity and even in
decency. I It is now proposed to I expend a
considerable sum of money in covering the
tomb with white marble tiling, in making a
white marble platform about it, lv inclosing
this platform with a handsome railinr, in
covering the unsightly water-pi pcs from view
and in isolating the machinery from the im
mediate surroundings of the tomb Itself. In
this way it is intended to honor the memory
of Mr. Lick, and to make his tomb exter
nally what it is in Idea, that is, 'a monu
ment as no old time Pharoali could have
imagined or commanded,' - I submit that
those engaged in this work deserve the
hearty support of j all Calif ornions, and I
hope that this note will sat at rest any un
founded rumors regarding this matter."

Annual Report to t&e Govern
ment of Its Affairs.
Extensive Improvements Absorb Nearly All
the Surplus Earnings.
Tie Directors Advocate the Passage of the
Frve Bill Extending tie Time for
Settling Its Indebtedness.
Special Dispatches to The MoKxrsa Call.
.Washington, Sept. 24.— The annual re
port to the Government of the Directors of.
the Union Pacific Railway was submitted to
the Secretary or the Interior to-day. It
shows that since the last report tho condi
tion of business throughout the entire
Union Pacific system has improved. While
tbe increase in the gross earnings during
the year 18S8 over lt>_& was only 574.G59, the
increase during the six months ending June
30ih of the present year over thesame period
of ia«9 was $3,295,027. The Oregon Railway
and Navigation Company and the roads
formerly in the Denver, Texas and Fort
Worth system, which are included in the
system of 1890, were not, however, included
in 1889. The surplus earnings of all the
lines operated and leased during the first six
months of this year were £0,051,434, an in
crease ii 8222,048 over the same time last
Tlie number of miles operated was 8034,
against 7849 for the same time last year,
and the expense of operating them was
514,004,500 against $11,501,521 in 1889, an in
crease of £3,092,978, taxes not included.
The Oregon Short Line and the Utah North
ern Hallway showan increase in earnings,
but their surplus earnings are reduced from
$1,203,3-0 for the six months ended June 30,
1889, to $1,129,983 for the. same period this
year. The Oregon liailway and Navigation
Company shows a falling off in its gross
earnings, they being reduced from £1,907,10.
to $1,866,86. forthe same period this year,
while the expense of operating the road was
increased to the amount of £427,534.
The Denver and Boulder Valley Road also
shows a decrease. The falling off in the
gross earnings of the Oregon Railway and
Navigation Company is in part attributed by
the Directors to the partial failure of crops in
Washington and Oregon last year. Informa
tion is received that crops this year are
The report says: The continued growth
of population and the advancement of busi
ness in the country tributary to the Union
Pacific from Nebraska to Washington make
the expenditure of a very large portion of
the earnings imperatively necessary for the
increase and improvement of facilities. -As
far a3 the Directors have been able to see,
the company is meeting the reasonable de
mands of its patrons as rapidly as its means
and circumstance.: wi_f permit. These im
provements every year require the expendi
ture of a larger proportion of the surplus
EXTENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS. «££??.
In the opinion of the Directors, the man
agement is pursuing a wise course in its
endeavor to meet the reasonable demands of
Its patrons, as the money being expended in
the extension and settlement of the system
is safely Invested and returns of the future
will, they think, prove the wisdom of its
course. Tho report speaks at some length
of the Improvements being made in the
way of extensions, steel rails, iron bridges,
new general shops at Cheyenne, develop
ment of coal mines, etc. These mines, the
report says, have not inly solved a great
problem in affording fuel for the system, but
promise a surplus which will be a source of
THE NORTHWESTERN" AGREEMENT.
Traffic arrangement with the Chicago and
Northwestern is approved. It i? expected
that the consolidation of several lines in
Colorado during 1889 will give the Union
Pacific access to and control of a large
amount of traffic from which it has hereto
fore been excluded. In view of the neces
sary improvements already in baud and the
urgent calls upon lhe company on the part
of its patrons for extensions, it has been
deemed best by the Directors to postpone
for the present the establishment of a sec
ond Sinking Fund pose I a year ago.
The Directors believe the cost of improve
ments made in the meantime greatly en
hances tho value of the property subject to
the liens of the Government, while they ex
ceed in money value the full amount which
would have been paid into the proposed Sink
THE company's indebtedness.
The total debt of the Union Pacific on
January 1, 1800, principal and iuterest, was
£50,902,705. This, with the accruing in
terest, tails duo in the years 1893 and 1899.
The -Hectors say the debt cannot be met at
the lime specified without doing an injustice
to hundreds of thousand') of people directly
and indirectly concerned in the welfare of
the system, In order to meet it the im
provement and extrusion of the com
pany's lines would have to be brought
to a : standstill, subje.ting the people
who have settled along the system
to • serious and perhaps irreparable
loss, while the territory which naturally be
longs tfi it would inevitably have to bo sur
render., d to its more enterprising competi
tors. To a large extent the welfare of the
people of the West, who depend upon this
system as the main channel of intercourse
with the markets of the world, is liable to
be affected favorably or unfavorably by the
attitude of the Government in connection
with the readjustment of the indebtedness.
The lighter the burden the Union Pacific
management is compelled to carry, the
easier will it bo for the management to meet
the constant demands of tho people for
greater anil belter accommodations.
"A FLEA' FOB THE PEOPLE.' t.^'
The report gives figures regarding the
mineral output of the States and Territor
ies tributary to the system in order to illus
trate the magnitude of that industry as a
single item, and says it is hut a foretaste of
what the future is certain to bring forth.
The best interests of the people of the
great West should be considered paramount
to all others in the settlement of the ques
tion. What is best for them must, in the
long run, be the best for the Government
and best. for the Union Pacific liailway,
these people demanding not only that the
: present first-class character of the Union
. Pacific shall be maintained, but that every
dollar that can possibly be spared from ' its
earnings shall he used in the betterment and
extension of the road. And they aro act
ing within reason, for the yearly increase in
population and business of their section re
quires extraordinary lacilities, consequently
there is no such thing as resting: upon Its
oars possible for the Union Pacific until it
shall have given the millions destined to
spread over the plains and mountains of the
West and Northwest nil the I accommoda
tions for freight and passenger traffic they
will be entitled to.
-, A WISE MAXAGEMEST. "'; .
"We are convinced," say the Directors,
"that the present management of the com
pany is an Honest and wise one. It oilers, in
return for -an extension of time for the pay
ment of its debt, and a lower rate of interest,
a mortgage on its entire property, which
would increase its security to the Govern
ment, to the ■ amount . above that held at

for the "Pathfinder's" family.
Judge Silent of Los Angeles is still here
enlisting public favor in behalf of the desti
tute ladies. In a recent conversation with .1
reporter he referred to facts which had been
overlooked in the published accounts, and
which put a new phase upon the situation of
the family. From his statements it appears
that Fremont was at one time owner of con
siderable land around Black Point, which
the Government condemned formilitary pur
poses, but while the adjoining owners were
all properly indemnified, General Fremont
never had a settlement.
In addition to this the General Government
has owed him since IHSO a sum of Sisoo,
which it refused to pay on the alleged
ground that he misappropriated . certain
funds. This charge lingered for years and
was never thoroughly investigated, until
Fremont himself demanded that it should
be, immediately prior to his being put on the
retired list. When his omits were then
settled up, his integrity was completely vindi
cated and the balance of .1800 acknowledged
to be due liim, but neither it nor the interest
has yet been paid.
A Pioneer truly remarked in an interview
yesterday that General Fremont was in
every sense of the word a public servant.
His whole life was devoted to the interests
of his country. His duties as a public man
gave him no time to make material provis
ions for the future, and the character of his
service unfitted him for the pursuits which
have money getting for an object In conse
quence he died poor.
This poverty, which is the result of faith
ful public service, is as worthy of relief at
the bauds of the people as was that of the
Grant and Garfield families, for if he had
been less faithful tn his trusts there would
have been no need for this appeal for the
help of his family.

A dreadful sight was witnessed yesterday
morning ou Fourth street, near Marker,
when a horse belonging to the Union Ice
Company fell and broke its hind leg short
off. As the animal's injuries were beyond
cure a policeman was called upon to put it
out of misery. This he attempted to do by
shooting it, but a quarter of an hour later it
was seen to be still suffering, and another
shot was fired through its head. When It
was seemingly dead the harness was re
moved from It, but the unfortunate animal
instantly revived and struggled to its feet.
Almost ■ half an hour alter the accident a
third shot was fired, but only with the re
