A FALSE ALARM.

Morley Replies to toe Criticisms on His
Recent Speech Condition of Affairs
Special to The Moknixo Call.
Buenos A tues, Oct. 7.— A .panic was
■ caused here last night by the rumor that a
fresh revolution had broken out. Troops
were called out and patrolled the streets dur
ing the night. The police were rapidly
armed with rifles and held in readiness at
the Central Station. A special train was
dispatched to Zarata for re-enforcements of
artillery, which arrived this morning.
';.'-'• The cause of tlie'alarm was the report of
' a police agent that attempts had been made
by the sergeants to suborn two regi

A Keply to the Criticisms on His Becent
Speech— The T.m s Attack.
London, Oct. 7.— ln an address at Swin
don to-night Morley replied to the criticisms
ion his recent speech. He ridiculed the idea
that because be had been a Cabinet Minister
be should be blind to tlie state of affairs in
Ireland. Every word he had told was true,
and he was glad to bave helped in tbe"ex
posure of the magisterial authorities. After
describing the distress in the congested dis
tricts of Ireland, Morley suggested thata
remedy was avail by renewing the pro
posals made in 1886.
Sir Michael Hicks- Bench, speaking at
Gloucester to-night, characterized Morley's
Story as a "traveler's tale." The recur
rence if the famine of is^«; was impossible.
The Government had taken measures t.i
prevent any extended suffering on account
pf the failure of the potato crop.
tecretnry of State Stanhope, in a speech
atUorncastle, declared the alleged famine in
Ireland only existed in the imagination of
tiie Parnellite leaders and American anglers
for the Irish vote. Referring to the new
United States tariff he said it was directed
largely against England and Canada, and
would do Canada a serious injury. Tbe
greatest injury, however, would be done to
tbe Americans themselves. It behooved
the Government, he sail, to find fresh out
lets for Brit .-li capital.
The Times has another leader on the
American contributions for Ireland, lt
says: Tbe promoters of that Ingenious bit
c£ electioneering, the American-Irish Fam

The Herald correspondent in Ireland tele

Tie Defeat of i_ International Copyright Bill
-iscussed at a London Meeting.
London, Oct. 7. — The International
Literary Congress met here to-day. Jules
Lemma, tbe permanent Secretary, pre
sented a report on the copyright law in
America. He attributed the defeat of the
Copyright Bill in Congress to the prevailing
unquenchable antagonism to England and tbe
antagonism at home between the Eastern and
Western States. lie beld out little hope of
a favorable settlement of the question. For
the present he proposed as a means of
reaching the desired cud that the congress
send thanks to all in America who had de
fended the good cause. Count Keratry,
speaking from bis long experience in
America, declared the report 100 gloomy, and
.that a successful Issue might lie expected far
sooner than the report indicated. It had been
easy hitherto, tinder the rules of the House
of Representatives, for a few active oppo
nents to prevent a copyright bill arriving at
a stage of discussion, but the recent accession
to power of Reed, who is a great friend
of tlie Copyright Association, would tender
such tactics more difficult A fresh bill, be
said, will be discussed in December, and
tbis bill would pass.

Vienna, Oct. 7. — A crime, committed
for the gratification of private malice, has
been made public Py the arrest of a scullion
named Lederer, employed in the kitchen of
the Archduke Sigismond at Gmunden,

that be put arsenic in the food prepared for
the table of the Archduke. The Archduke
and his suite partook of the food and all
wen- taken sick. The doctors arrived In
time to neutralize the effects of the poison.
Lederer's sole object was to effect the dis
charge of the Archduke's chef, who had in

THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Letter From th; Director-General to the Press
of the Hailed States.
Chicago, Oct 7.— The following was
To the Press of the United States: The
undersigned has been elected to the position
of Director-General of the World's Fair at
Chicago in 1593 by the joint action of the
National Commissioners and Board of Di
rectors. In accepting this important po
sition be accepts all its responsibilities, ana
trusts with the aid of the press of the coun
try that this great international exhibition
may prove to be sucli a success as will be
creditable to the American nation. By an
act of Congress it is provided that the build
ings for the World's Fair shall be dedicated
i n the 12th of October, 1892. and the ex
hibition be open to visitors on the Ist day of
May, 1893, and close uo later than the 30th of
October thereafter. Thus we have two
years in which to arrange the grounds and
erect the buildings and seven months addi
tional in which to receive and place ex
hibits. So far as this country is concerned
the undersigned feels justified in the state
ment that the presentation of agricultural
and stock products will be in every respect
superior to any previous exhibition; also
that in inventions the progress of the United
States will be indicated in a most remark
able manner, There is also every reason to
anticipate exhibits in large numbers from
every oilier nation on the globe, it being es
timated by practical experts that the total
number of exhibits will be not less than
50,000, divided equally between the United
States **.ud ail foreign nations.
It is proposed to make this exhibition
specially interesting in all that relates to
manufactures by the representation of the
most imp -riant processes iv active operation;
In comparison with these will be presented
the methods used in other countries 400
years since. Already there are indications
that nearly every State and Territory iv the
Union will be fully represented, and that
large appropriations will be made at the
approaching sessions of the different State
Legislatures. Circulars and blank applica
tions for space will be forwarded in due
season to all intending exhibitors. The
unucrsigaed would call upon tbo press of
the United States to assist in the great
international undertaking, which, if success
ful, will establish the United States of Amer
ica as ihe first nation of the globe.

The Ohio Coagreisman Opens the Campaign
U_?r Fnv-irab'.e Conditions.
MiLLEBSBURG (Ohio), Oct. 7.—Congress
man McKm lev opened bis campaign in the
Sixteenth District here this evening. This
is the county seat of Holmes County, one of
the Democratic 'strongholds added to his
district by the gerrymander passed last
winter. The Major ■ was greeted by
a fine audience. Major McKiuley spoke
briefly of the gerymanaer and devoted most
of His remarks to a discussion of the tariff.
In the course of bis remarks he said there is
not an item upon whicli protective duties,
have been .aid that has not been reduced in
price to the people who buy it The Repub
lican party ii teen jears ago gave the
country free coffee and tea and has
now given it free sugar. Wo have as a re
sult a free and untaxed breakfast table.
The duties under this bill are lower than
those of any bill since 1861. We bave re
duced the duties wherever it would not in
terfere with or injure home iudustries,
and have increased it only where tho
protection of our own manufacturing
interests demanded it. Duties on wool have
all been made protective. If in 1883 the
farmers of Ohio defeated the Republican
party for its reduction of the wool tariff, as
the Democrats then claimed, it is their
duty now to vole lor the Repub
lican party, as it has not only restored the
tariff of 1803, butmade it stronger by a high
tariff on all substitutes f;:r wool. The
American market is the best in the world,
and it has been made so and can only be so
maintained by protection. They say we
have increased the price of everything.
I would lite to know what we have
increased the duties on except champagne,
brandy, plushes, velvets and ihe luxuries 01

The infant daughter of a Liverpool woman,

160.000,000 or £10,000,000. If she dies
before attaining majority, or before

Within a couple of years after obtaining her
divorce, she married the late Juan Terry,

Wilmington (Del.). Oct. 7.— An explosion
of powder occurred at the Duponts' powder
works, Dupont. Del., this afternoon. Tbo
mills are seven miles from this city. One
of the magazines went off first and the roll
ing and drying mills near by, set off by
tbo concussion, followed in rat-id succession.
Tliere were nt least seven distinct, succes

or more or less damaged. Telephonic in

above the scene of the explosion. It com
prises a large paper-mill, owned by the Jes

dwellings, in which chiefly reside the mill
employes. Its population is about 200. The
evidence of destruction at that distance
leads to ths belief here that the number
of killed and wounded has not yet been fully
When an Associated Tress representative
arrived on the scene be found women and
children, wives, sons and daughters of the
men employed in the ponder manufactory,
madly rushing here aud there, seeking in
formation about tbe safety of their loved
ones. The yard in which the mills stood
was littered with debris of the
fallen buildings, and at some places
where buildings had been the only
traces left were empty cellars and a few
foundation stones. The little village of Du
pont and the banks immediately outside
the powder-yard presented a most pitiable
appearance. A hundred dwellings were
either demolished or badly damaged. Build
ings were unroofed, the fronts of houses
blown out and wrecked. Inside the dwell
ings the devastation was complete. The
rooms on the ground floors were strewn
with broken crockery, crushed stoves, rem
nants of tables, etc.
The Dupont Powder Mills extend along
the Brandywine, chiefly on the west bank
and close to the water for about two miles.
They are divided into the upper (Hagley)
and lower yards. The former is three
miles and tbe bitter five miles from Wil
mington. The report of tho damage done
at Rockland proves incorrect as to
locality, the name of Rockland ! be
ing erroneously used for buildings
clustered around what is known locally as
the "upper yard." There are some fifty
bouses inhabited by employes of powder
mills clustered here, and thesj were all
wrecked. The damage to property cannot
be thoroughly estimated to-night. The
force of the concussion even broke windows
in some parts of Wilmington,' four or five
miles away. Following is a partial list of

A RACE QUESTION.
Trouble Over tbe Employment of Colored Men
by a Railroad Company, .-/?'-•
-!____ Haiti: (Ind.), Oct. 7.— A Supremo
Council of the federation of Hallway Em
ployes has been called to meet at Houston,
Texas, next Thursday, to consider the
troubles on the Houston and Texas Central
road arising from the employment of col
ored switchmen. Grand Master Wilkinson
of the Switchmen's Union, lias been there
fur several days, but is unable to effect a
settlement. The company refuses to dis
charge ttio colored employes. If a strike
should be ordered on tho Houston and
Texas Central it might involve all of
Huntington's lines in tho southwest and
thus be a matter of grave importance.
Grand Secretary Debbs says this is the
first instance of race trouble coming before
the federation, and the matter is likely to
be a serious one. lie said not one of" all
the railroad organizations accepted colored
men as members. White employes are en
deavoring to raise wages in the South, but
colored labor can be procured cheaper. Tho
colored men havo organizations, but are nut

an address to the Presidents, in which Wal
ker p resents his views as to the proper so
lution of existing railway problems. He de
clares the roads should discard independent
action in initiating competitive rates; they
should relieve traffic departments from the
responsibility of making rates and should
put the whole subject of their establish
ment in the hands of a central agency, re
sponsible directly to the President and Di
rectors of the associated lines. In addition,
he says, it would be well for the roads to
seriously consider the question of placing
the entire joint traffic to and from their
Eastern connections ln cliarge of a common
agency, either a single individual or a joint
stock corporation. The purpose of this
agreement would be to provide means of
equalizing traffic between competing lines.
Incidentally enormous expenses, he be
lieves, could be put to an end.

Washington, Oct Lyman E. Knapp,
Governor of Alaska, in his annual report to
the Secretary of the Interior gives an ac
count of the condition and resources oftlie
Territory. Duriug the year, lie states,
about 100,000 full-sized seal skins were taken
by the Alaska Commercial Company under
their contract with the Government, and
that probably half as many more were cap
tured at sea and stolen by poaching vessels.
De speaks of the value of tbe fur and fish
ing interests and mineral products. The
value of the exports last year was nearly
$10,000,000. Of this amount, among other
items, were $1,000,000 representing tbo
value of whalebone; 52,000,000 worth of
seal fur, and S'-'.000.000 worth of gold
bullion. The Governor recommends that
provision be made for acquiring title to
lands, the passage of a townsitolaw adapted
to Alaska, and an extension of mail facili
Governor Knapp says the law prohibiting
tbe sale and manufacture of intoxicating
liquors in the Territory is a dead letter ex
cept as to Indians. The reason for the in
efficiency of the law, the Governor says, is
that prosecutions would b>. of no avail. The
Grand Juries refuse to indict and the petty
juries refuse to convict. Legislation which
would provide more effective machinery for
tbe enforcement of the present law wou Id
Undoubtedly afford a solution of the per
plexing question. He calls attention to the
inadequacy of the laws for the administra
tion of justice, etc., and recommends that a
commission, consisting in part, at least of
gentlemen acquainted with the country and
Its needs, be appointed to prepare a short
code of special laws to be submitted to Con
gress. The work of the Government schools,
of which there arc fourteen, the Governor
says, is measurably satisfactory, though the
attendance Is not large, the children pre
ferring to hunt and fish, and their parents

THE MORMON CHURCH.
How the Action of the Conference Is Se
eorded ia Washington.
- WAsniNOTON, Oct. 7.— Most of the Sena
tors and Congressmen have left Washington,
but the news from the Mormon Conference
was beard with profound satisfaction by the
officials here who have mainly to deal with
the church In Utah. " This is indeed im
portant news," said General Noble, Secretary
of the Interior, when informed of the action
■of the General Mormon Conference. "I am
glad to hear of it, and hope the action of the
Mormon Church was taken in all sincerity.
If the action of the Mormon Conference
brings forth proper fruits, naturally it will
tend to relax the rigor of the law. It is
polygamy that it is desired to exterminate.
I confess the recent 1 Hiding of a large num
ber of female immigrants at New York does
not, to my mind, tally very well with this
official action of the Mormon Church, nor
does it indicate reform. However, let us
accept it in the spirit ot sincerity and trust
that they really propose to conform to the
law of the land. It is much preferable to
have them relinquish polygamy voluntarily
than to be compelled to crush it out by the
strong arm of the law.'*
Attorney-General Miller, upon whom de
volves the duty of prosecuting those
charged with polygamous practices, said:
•'The significance of ibis proceeding on the
part of lite General Mormon Council will
have to be developed by circumstances.
Whether a set of men who in the past have
been as wise as serpents are suddenly going
to become us harmless as doves is a problem
which the future alone can solve. Probably

Mount Vernon (Ind.), Oct. 7.— To-day
has been one of ovations for the Chief Mag
istrate of the nation. Kentucky, Ohio and
Indiana have joined in doing him homage,
and in the land of Dixie the greeting is co
less warm than iv the native State of Presi
dent Harrison. It was hardly more than
daybreak when the Presidential train passed
through Newport and Covington, but the
President was up and bowed acknwledg
meuts to the bristling, enthusiastic Ken
tuckians that crowded the depots as the
train passed through. Cincinnati was
reached at 7:30 o'clock in the morning, but
despite the early hour several thousand peo
ple were gathered at the Central Station to
greet the President. At 8 o'clock the train
THE OLD HARRISON HOMESTEAD. /
The principal event of the day was to
come. Near North End, Ohio, tlie old Har
rison homestead was reached, and the train
came to a stop just abreast the house in
whicli Benjamin Harrison first saw light,
and but a few yards from the white shaft
lhat marks the tomb of his illustrious an
cestor, William Henry Harrison. The oc
casion was uot one for words, and as the
President passed to the rear of the platform
be was unaccompanied. The rest of the
parly delicately left him to the solemn
memories tbat the scenes of bis childhood
and youth called forth. After a brief stop
the train passed on, but the President was
visibly affected by tbe sights that brought so
many tender memories to bis mind, and
when the iiltle town of Lawrenceburg was
reached bis vi ice was heavy with emotion
as he addressed tlie crowd of old neighbors
and friends that thronged to greet him.
"My friends," said the President, "I
want to thank you very cordially for this
greeting. All the scenes about here are
very familiar to nie. The town of Law
renceburg is the first village of my childish
recollections, and as I approached it this
morning, part tbe earliest home of my recol
lections, a h me in which my childhood and
early manhood were spent, memories crowd
in upon me that are very lull of interest,
very lull of pleasure, aud yet full of sad
ness. Tiny bring back to me. those who
once made the old home very dear, the most
precious spot on earth. I have passed with
bowed bead the place where they rest. We
are here in our generation with the work of
those who have gone before upon us. Let
us see, each of _*, that in the family, in the
neighborhood and in the State, we do, at
least, with equal courage, grace and kind
ness, the work so gravel}*, kindly, graciously
done by those who lilbd our places fifty
year ago. Now, for 1 must hurry on, to
these old friends and these new friends who
have come iv since Lawr. nc burg was fa
miliar to mc, I extend again my hearty
thanks for this welcome, and beg, in part
ing, to introduce the only member of my
Cabinet who accompanies me — General
Tracy, Secretary of the .Navy."
Secretary Tracy contented himself by
merely bowing to the enthusiastic crowd,
and lie and the President had time to shake
a few eager bands extended as the train
pulled out. At Milan and Osgood large
crowds also assembled, but the President
merely appeared in the rear platform, in
troduced Secretary Tracy, bowed to the
cheering li-.diatians, and the train passed
AMONG OLD FRIENDS.
Seymour (lud.), Oct 7.— North Ver
non, Ind., the crowd would be satisfied with
nothing less than a speech from the Presi
dent. "1 am very glad, my friends," be
said, "to see you, and very much obliged to
you for your pleasurable greeting. [Great
applause.] It is always a pleasure to see my
old Indiana friends. We have had this
morning a delightful ride across the south
ern part ef the State, one that has given my
heart a deal of refreshment and pleasure.
[Cheers.] Let me again assure you I am
very much obliged to you all here for this
evidence of your iriendship. I hope you
will excuse me from any further speech on
this occasion. It gives nip pleasure, my fel
low-citizens, to introduce to you General
Tracy of New York, Secretary of the Navy,
who accompanies me on this trip." Three
cheers and a tiger were eiven lor the Presi
dent and the Secretary of the Navy. .
REMARKS TO SCHOOL CHILDREN.
Mitchell (Ind.), Oct. 7.— Seymour. Ind.,
gave a rousing evidence of Harrison's Pop
ularity in that little town, and after he had

said: "I feel I ought to thank you, my

beautiful morning, lt is indeed a pleasure
to me to gieet so many of you, aud, thank
ing you lor this welcome, I hope you will
excuse me from any father speech." [Ap

A QUESTION OF RELATIONSHIP.
Vincennes (Ind.), Oct. 7.— lt was quickly
demonstrated that the village of Washing
ton, which was reached at 1 o'clock in the
afternoon, had many old friends of tbe Pres
ident. An old gray-haired man elbowed his
way sturdily through the crowd to the Pres
ident, and, grasping bis hand, said: ''How
are you, Dan ? 1 am glad to see you. I
voted for your grandfather, then voted for
you, and I hope, Ben, I'll have a chance to
vote for you again. You don't mind if 1
call you Bin?" [Great laughter from the
crowd.l The President assured his visitor
that to his old friends he hoped always to
remain "Ben," as of yi re, and the crowd
loudly applauded the sentiment. The en
couraged an old lady to exclaim as she
grasped the President's hand: "I feel as
though I am related to you, Mr. President
Your grandfather and mine ate roast turkey
and pig together, and that makes us related,
doesn't it? [Great laughter.] The Presi
dent bowed atlirmation to this logic as the
tram moved rapidly out. -

The principal event of the day was the
receplion at Terre Haute. A stand had
been erected and fully ten thousand people
assembled to greet the party. The arrival
of the train was heralded by the whistles of
every engine and factory in the city, and tho
noise was deafening. When the sneaker's
stand was finally reached it was fully ten
minutes before the thousands of cheering
people could be quieted. Mayor Daniels
welcomed the President to the city. and in
troduced him to the people. The President
in responding said he very heartilly appre

in your midst are to-day producing their
varied products, and that these find a ready
market at remunerative prices. I was told,

very pleasant to know that this prosperity
is generally shared by all our people. Hope

views of public policies, but I trust every

TRACY AND GROSVENOR. j
The President then introduced Secretary
Tracy, who made a brief address, in which
lie said he had been delighted with his trip,
but more especially with the enthusiasm
with which the people of Indiana nave ev
erywhere gre-ted the President and the
warm personal friendship they have mani
fested. Tracy concluded his speech by say
ing: "The same qualities of band and
heart that have so endeared him to you will
cause him to be equally esteemed by all the
people of the nation." Congressman Grosve
uor Ohio, in a brief speech, congratulated
the farmersof Indiana upon tbe appearance
of prosperity, saving be had expected from
the representations made to find them a
pallid-cheeked, poverty-stricken, mortgage
ridueu people, instead of a class upon whom
the gods of agriculture seemed to be smiling.
It required considerable exertion fur the'
party to again reach the train through the
surging crowd. As soon as possible the
journey was resumed.
Bloomington (III.), Oct. 7.— When the.
Presidential train reached Danville Depot
thousands of piople were found assembled.
Congressman Cannon introduced the Presi

whom did me any good. 1 -Uttered ail a, nun can
suffer and live. Hearing of your Oirr-icraA Hemic-

been using them about ten weeks, and am fnost
happy to say that 1 am almost rid of the awful sores
that covered my face and lio.'y. My face was as bad,
if not worse, tban that of Miss Boynton, spoken ot

cured. You may use this letter in tbe Interests of
