THE IRISH PRESS.
.. ' Dublin,' Nov. 20. — The Freeman's Jour
■•• nal, In a leading article on Gladstone's let
ter, says: Gladstone assumes that the Irish
party portion of the Liberal party and the
' ' flitter arc qualified to de[t>«e the Irish lead

pendent opposition would be isolated and
- broken down if this power of the veto was
admitted. We. must never f oreet that Glad

" the Irish delegates, said this evening that
; to-day's London meeting was postponed
without action to allow the delegates here

' will probably meet Friday at Cincinnati
and interchange views. Gill warns the
friends of the Iri.'h cause to beware of ha-

probable decision of the party Gill would
give no opinion.
He added that when Farnell's mouth is

few days will allow all parties to consider

people and Parnell.
O'Brien, who is in Cincinnati, sent a ca
blegram to the other side, this afternoon,
earnestly recommend ina the party to open
friendly communications with Gladstone.
O'ISKIKN AND SULLIVAN.
Cincinnati. Nov. 26.— Messrs. O'Brien
and Sullivan of the Irish Nationalist party,
being asked if they had anything to say con
cerning the letter of Gladstone, replied that
it was a matter engaging their anxious con
sideration, but, Dillon not being here, no
conference could be had at present.
New Yohk, Nov. 26.— The Sun's London
special says: GlnrUti ne's retirement from
political life, which can only be avoided by
I'arneH'g resignation, means not a mo
mentary disaster but temporary ruin to
thft c:\uspi of home rule. Gladstone
up to Monday bad been giveu to understand
that Parnell would relire for a season.
When it became known that the Irish leader
had no such intention tho lei ter to Morley
was written and coufideutially communi
cated to Parnell. It was nut made public
until Parnell had publicly rejected the
solemn advice which it conveyed.
Trusted leaders, such ns Justin McCarthy,
Thomas Sexton, Michael Daviit and
Arthur O'Connor, have urged Parnell
to bow his head to the storm, lest
it may inflict serious injury upon the
cause, and thereby cause the. Irish Parlia
mentary patty to split into factions with
similar demoralizing effect iv Ireland.
The adjournment o( to-day's meeting was

A few days ago twelve bucks, well armed,

They were very surly, and made threats.

Minneapolis, Nov. 26.— A Tribune's spe

created much excitement there. Phillips
and Waldron are known to be intimately
acquainted with all the prominent Indians
and their ways, having married into the

assertion of trouble coining. What makes
the matter v ore serious is the report that
army officers have been ordeied to capture

Phillips and Wiil-.iron Are sure such an at

directly responsible for tbe Indian dUturb

Nye passed llii<n>i:li Rend he stopneit mwi

th- fitmous Indian interbreter. He was
quite struck with the pieuliarities of the
Indian, and had a lone conversation with
him. Afterward parties in Heno told Nye
several anei'dnlcs of Sides which he Incor

saw the letter in print, but heard of it from
parties who jnked him about it, and mnny
who saw tha' he was annoyed manufactured
All fcorts of jams übout him which
they said they had read in Nye's letter. He
finally became very angry because he has
lad a singularly honest life and is preud of
his semi-civilization nnd education. Parties
pretended to believe all sorts of things
about him and claimed that Nye had written
him up as a murderer, drunkard, gambler,
etc. In his innocence he saw nu humor iv
these things, and, thinking that he had lost
the confidence of the whites, he became
very moruse. He then preached anew Mes

not regenerated his chosen iex>ple, but
caused them to believe in wicked stories
about himself. People who could not dis

Referring to Johnson us the Messiah who
has promised the Indians all sorts of

of his career said, iv the St. Paul Ploneer

to create an excitement that will result in no
good to the Indians. Nor will it do good to
tiie white settlers who arc located within
reach of trouble that will result from the
plotting of this wily savage. In 1878 the
I'ti" tribe, of which Johnson whs a petty
chief, was located at White Kiver Agency,
in Graud County, Colorado. The head
chiefs were Douglas and Jack, while the
head chief of all the Ute tribes was Ouray,
who lived at Los linos Agency, some dis

strong feeling in Colorado that the Ute*

clamoiine for tho rich mineral deposits
supposed to be slumbering iv the mountains,
and Die grand valleys, aud parks, where tho
Indians fished, hunted, picked the luscious
wild fruit, and grazed their ponies. It was
the same old story : The Indians are a
thriftless lot anyhow. They have no use for
this grand country. In May. IS7B, ft C.
Meeker, who had fouuded tho town of
Greeley, Colo., utider the patronage or

correspondent for the New York Tribune
over the signaluie of N. C. M., was put in

the. relator, "no one doubted who knew him,
but ho wholly misunderstood ludi.in

The Kidnaped Boy Believed to Be Imprisoned
New Toisk, Nov. 26.— World say 3:
It is more than probable that Charley Koss,
the loug lost kidnaped son of Christian K.
Ross, has at last been found. The detective
bureau at police headquarters seem reason

has been received iv this city that Master
Workman I'owderly aud a committee of
Knights of L.ibor would be at Ocala, Fin.,
next Tuesday at the convention of the
Farmers" Alliance. It has been under
stood since election day that Powderly aud
his chief men of the Knights of Labor
would make every effort to obtain recogni
tion at the ron\ention. They have now
definitely determined to present themselves
aiui a*k to tw permilts'd to join issues witl->
the Allianre. l'owuerly mid his assistant
leaders think iiio best thing the Knights
can do is to join hands with the Alliance on
all questions and propositions advanced by
it. There is decided objection on tlie p.irt
of the Alliance to Powderly's securing re
cruits for li is organiz-ation iron; among
farm-hands. There would be danger that
these ia: ii -hand- would organize divisions
of their own among tin; Knights, aud un
der ttie Inspiration of Powderly insist on
higher wages Hiid shorter hours. The own
ers ut farms do not propose to have auy
strikes among their hands, particularly at
harvest times. With these facts in view, it
is believed that the Alliance will turn a
cold shoulder to Powdeily.

Washington, Nov. 26.— A great many
peopls in Washington are inquiring why
Cleveland wrote that letter to Acres of Kan
sas City, unless he wanted it published. He
and Acres art 1 uot intimate friends; they are
not eveu acquaintances. He never saw
Acres in his life, aud knew nothing about
him except that lie had a letter from Acres
aud felt moved to answer it. Upon what
principle of good taste or exvoliency did
Cleveland proceed to uncork the vials of his
secret feelings and empty them into the
bosom of unknown Acres? Only a little
more than two years ago Cleveland had oc
casion to pronouuee a very severe Judgment
upon a gentleman named Sackville West,
who answered a letter from a stranger iv
Los Angeles. How is it that wo find him in
dulging in that same blunder himsell '.' The
probability is that Cleveland thought bis
letter to Acies a uii;:hty fine tiling when he
wrote it, and contemplated with equanimity,
if not with pleasure, thu irospect of its
getting into priut. Publii: comment, how
ever, has changed his mind ns to the per
formance, and now he is jumping on Acres
fordoing exactly what ho might have been
expected to do. That gentleman no doubt
honestly thought he was carrying out his
correspondent's intentions. At any rate, it
will help Ingalls in his fight for the Senator
ship, iv the opinion of politicians in Wash-
In a letter lo a friend Senator Ingalls says:
"While the legislative situation Is not en

a selection of operatic numbers and an ex

Meanwhile, the participants in the carnival
began to make their presence known, and

The preliminary entertainment continued

spoke to him and told him to climb down by
the vet. Then Ceballos tried to climli t<> the
boy, but his added weiglit careened the bal
loon still more and increased the danger to
both, and he had to go back. The boy held
on bravely until he could hold no longer and
then he fell, grazing Ceballos ashe went
down. He struck on the ground and was
killed instantly.— Bridgeport (Conn.) special

Constitutional Catarrh. , '•^
No single disease has entailed more suffering or .
hastened the breaking up or the constitution than f
Catarrh. The. sense or smell, or taste, of sight, of ..
hearing, the human voice, the mind— one or more -
and sometimes all yield to Its destructive influence. ' .
The poison It distributes throughout the system at- ■-
tacks every vital force and breaks up the most ..
robust of constitutions. Ignored, because but little ','
understood; by most physicians, iinpotently assailed •
by quacks and charlatans, those suffering from It-,
have little hope to be relieved of it this side of the-
grave. It is time, then, that the popular treatment • '
of this terrible disease by remedies within the reach, . .
or all passed Into bands at once competent and trust- •
worthy. The new and hitherto untried method ■ ■
adopted by Dr. Sanford In the preparation of his '
Raiiical Cure has won the hearty approval of
thousands. It Is Instantaneous In affording relief :
In all head cold.-*, sneezing, snuffling and obstructed ' .
breathing, and rapidly removes the moat oppressive " ,■
symptoms, clearing the head, sweetening the breath, : .
restoring the senses of smell, taste and hearing-, and .'
neutralizing the constitutional tendency of Che dl» ..'.
