A FABRICATION.
United Ireland's Story of tlie
Dublin Meeting Denied,
Intimation That Parnell Was Pelted Will
Mod Instead of Lime.
Eisbcp Hanogue of Sacramento Gives the
Result of His Observations During
a Trip Through Ireland.
Fj e rial to The Mobxino Calt.
Lokdox, Dec. 19.— Archbishop Walsh has
telegraphed to the London papers that the
account of the meeting of the Chapter of
Dublin, as published yesterday by United
Ireland, is a shameful fabrication. The
article declared the chapter adopted a reso
lution urging the ecclesiastical authorities
to abstain from taking any action on the
Paniell matter.
The branch of the National League on the
Island of Jersey has adopted a resolution
against I'arnell.
i'Arxell's ixjcmes.
A dispatch received in this city from
Michael Davitt states that the Injuries sus
tained l>y Parnell at Castle Comer were in
flicted by women nnd girls, who pelted him
with flour and mud. The story that lime
was thrown in his face and eyes, the dis
patch says, is Parnell's latest disgusting
dodge to eveke sympathy aud divert the
people's mind from the real issue.
The Kilkenny correspondent of the Tele
graph declares that he tasted some of the
matter thrown at Parnell and found the
sub«tance gritty anu acrid, and it was un
doubtedly collected from a small lime kiln
near Castle Comer.
— MUli INSTEAD OF LIME.
Drm.ix. Dec. 19.— Canon Cody asserts
that it was mud that was thrown in I'ar
nell's face and eyes, and not lime, as
claimed.
Parnell and his colleagues drove to Johns
town to-day. Redmomi, in alluding to the
denials that lime was thrown, declared that
two doctors stoked their reputation on the
fact that it was hrue they found in Paruell's
eyes.
McCarthy addressed a meeting at Kilken
ny to-day, as did also Sexton. The latter
deeply regretted the violence done to Paruell.
CAXOH lee's denial.
Canon Lee, Dean of the Dublin Chapter,
writes a long letter denying that the chapter
met in Dubiin as asserted by Parnell, and
adds that be is convinced that Ireland should
act in accord with the maDlfesto of the
hierarchy. ••Parnell's character as revealed
in the divorce court," Lee says, ''speaks for
itself, and since the verdict he has
given further abundaut proof of his unfit
ness for the leadership of the Irish party."
Lee proceeds at much length to state "his
opinion that in view of the exetal state of
public feeling it is inexpedient fcr the clergy
to mix up with violent meetings. He is no
less clearly of the opinion that (he clergy
have a duty to perform in impressing up^n
the people on every suitable occasion that
drspiie his many precious services they find
themselves forced to the conclusion that
they must regard Parnell as a fallen leader
no longer worthy of Ue people's confidence.
bishop manogite's views.
New Yoiik, Dee. 19.— Right Rev. Bishop
>..;,...■■ of Sacramento, Cal., has arrived
on the ilajestic. ' Bishop ilanogue was born
in Kilkenny, Ireland, and is on his way
home after spending eight weeks traveling
through Irelnnd. Speaking t.f Parnell and
the present Irish situation the Bishop says:
"At present the people of Ireland are so
greatly excited they have difficulty in view
ing the situation wisely. However, there can
be no doubt ihe leading people of Ireland
feel convinced that Parnell is making a
great mistake in maintaining his position in
face of the fact that it is more than likely
that he could, by temporary retirement, g:iii
home rule for Ireland in a short time. Tn
day the ardent well-wishers and workers
for lielaud'n cause believe Parnell is no
longer working for the well-being and wel
fare of his country. They believe ParnellJs
now making his right for Parnell and nit
for borne rule. He has the advantages of
the prejudices of the Iri«h people against
England, and Is now deliberately postpon
ing the further advancement of the cause
lor which he so long and honestly labored.
CHEATER THAN GLADSTONE.
" ITis tight to-day is to be a greater man
than Gladstone. He refuses to perform the
pieat act of patriotism Oy withdrawing, and
thereby giving v chance for the Irish mem
bers to remain intact, acting with the Lib
erals to confer upon Ireland the longed-for
boon of home rule. Tlie people of Ireland
could not have been weaned from
Parnell had it not been for the ex
posure of the divorce courts. In that
case he promised to come forth from
public trial unstained, and left many
of the very best Irish elements in doubt as
to the is'ue. But they trusted him and
believed him innocent. Then instead of
ottering himself be appeared neither per
sonally nor by couusel, and by thus confess
ing himself Kuilty he bitt rly disappointed
his mojf ardent friends. It 'is thin admis
sion or^Juilt which led so many supporters
of home rule to declare against Parneil. The
next general election will show how thor
oughly he is repudiated."
ALMOST DESERTED.
The Times' Cork special says: Although
at this juncture the eves of the world are
fixed on North Kilkenny, yet, being anxious
to observe for myself the strength oi the
feeling i f the people in other parts of the
country. I have made careful inquiries
throughout Cork. Nearly every public
board in County Cork has declared against
the ex-leader, while not a single
infill of iiny prominence in thn
county has declared in his favor.
Jn other counties si-Uttered Parnnllite ad
herents are occasionally able to make dem
onstrations in fav.ir oi Parnell by the con
struction of bogus resolutions. Tiie feeling
indeed against him is intensely bitter. Auy
priest who spoke in favor of Parnell would
Incur the risk of suspension. To insure a
favorable reception Parnell sent a consider
able sum of money to this city, aud it is no
torious that the torchlight procession which
met him on liis arrival was arranged at his
own expense. The tide of public feeling in
Cork has begun to set steadily against Par
nell.
CONFIDENCE IN PAKNELT..

a meeting at the Cooper Union to-night,
which was called by the Municipal Coun
cil of the Irish National Le.igue. Michael

JUSTLY FINISHED.
Execution <i a Quebec Kurderer Whose
Crime Was P.eadiih.
Sherbiiooke (Quebec), Dee. 19.— Sheriff
Webb fcuddeuly died of heait disease at 8:45
o'clock this morning. The excitement at
tending the execution ot Itcmi la Montagne
was probably the cause. The death of the
Sheriff delayed the execution but a few mo
ments. La Montagne was hanged at 9:%
o'clock. The crime for which Montagne
suffered the extreme penalty of the law was
an abominable one. In July, 1888, he went
to the house of his brother-in-law. Napoleon
Michel, enticed him to the door, shot him
twice, cut his thaoat, slashed his body,
dragged him back into the house and set it
on tire. The wounded man dragged him
self from the Uauies, badly scorched, but
died after a few weeks. The murderer's
sister, Leda, a handsome French-Canadian
girl of 20 yer.rs, the wife of the victim, was
arrested for complicity in the crime, but
the brother escaped. It came out at the
trial that Leda and her brotiier had been
living Id incest. Slie was acquitted, ihe
fact that she was enciente evidently having
influenced the jury. A large reward was
offrred for the murderer and he was finally

Retaliuive Duties.
London-, Dec. 10.— The Bradford Cham

favoring the imposition by the Government
of disci iminating duties on French wares.
This action is recommended for the purpose
oi retaliating against France for its duties
on English products established by the new-

HYPNOTIC INFLUENCE.
Medical Hen Discuss Its Merits at the
Eyrand Trial.
Fatus, Dec. in. -In the Evraud trial te
dsy, Dr. Liegeois, the head of the Medical
Faculty Culligd of Nanoy, and a believer in
hypnotization, explained his Mea3 on the sub
ject, and expressed surprise that he had
not been allowed to see Mile. Bonrpard for
the purpose of a;ceitaining to what decree
she is susceptible to hypnotic influence. Tlie
prisoner ought again to be^iut to sleep by
mesmerism in order to revive her recollec
tion of the facts occurring at the moment of
her confession of the crime. According to
the indictment, Eyraud had not bern able to
put Mile. Bompard to sleep, yet she had been
proposed amenable to the hypnotic inrlu
euco of Gnranger, having revealed the crime
to him while hypnotized. For his (Liegeois')
part, if he were a Judge, bearing in mind
previous miscarriages of justice, he would
rather cut off his hand than pronouuee sen
tence upon Mile. liompard.
Yheti the sensation which this declaration
caused tied subsided, the proenreor asked
by what scientific means it was determined
whether hypnotic sleep is real ir simulated.
Lieeeois replied that a subject who has beeu
really put to sleep can bear without betrav
ine any symptoms of sensibility to pain, pm
pricks in various portions of the body. Dr.
liroiiardel was then called at d said he had
little esteem for the theoiies of hypnotism.
Liegois' statements wanted scientific proof.
Bronardel was not in favor of again hypno
tizing the prisoner. lit* did not wish to run
the risk of letting the audience hear revela
tions that might be surprised out of the
accused. Doctors Mollet and Ballet shared
his views. They thought the case too com
plicated to have beeu committed under
hypnotic influence.
Mile. Bompard's counsel and counsel for
Eyraud Jointly requested that the woman be
hypnotized in open court. Tlie Judges, after
consultation, refused the request.

Rapid City (S. Dak.), Dec. 10.— Four
hundred men of the Infantry
started to-day for General Cnrr's camp at
Rapid Creek and Cheyenne Kiver. General
Miles now has concentrator there c.bout
IJOO men with artillery. There Is a largp
encampment of hostile Indians in the grass
basin of the Br.d Lands, about ten miles
from Can's camp, and the Indians have
been making raids on the ranches from
there.
Troops are being disposed of tn guard
every pass and outlet and the cavalry is
scouting about to intercept Sitting Bull's
followers, who are supposed to be heading
for that point.
The indication* are that General Miles
proposes holding the Indians in the basin
until he is ready to nuike a movement into
tlie Bad Lands simultaneously with Genera I
Brooke's forces. As the troops are disposed
of, it now appears that tho escupe of the
hostiles is impossible.
FOBX Yates (N. Dak.), Dec. 10.- Bull
Head's body was buried to-day with military
honors. His squaw was up on the Cannon
Bull River when she heard of the fight
started at once for Fort Yates and walked

Constant friend of the whites, and his people
have no intention of going on the warpath,
lie never had anything to do with the gliost
dance. He complains of the Government
rations being cut down more and more every
year. The past two seasons were so dry
that the Indians could raise little, and the
rations so scant that they had to kill their
own cattle to avoid starvation. Many be
came sick from the want of the proper quan
tity of food, and 217 died from starvation
since the fall of last year.
Minneapolis, Dec. 19.— A Rapid City
(S. Dak. i special says: Reports of engage
ments between the troops and Indians at
Daly'a ranch and other points ar« false.
There have been three skirmishes between
Indians and Colonel M. H. Day's command
of settlers mid cowboys, numbering titty
men. The last one, on Tuesday, was a hot
one. The Indians attempted to burn the
haystacks at Daly's ranch, but were driven
off by Colonel Day and ten men.
A baud of 150 hostiles is moving west
ward, fifty miles north of here, in B;itte
County. Eighty men of the Ninth Cavalry
and sixty Cheyenne scouts have been sent
after them.
Dknvkr, Dec. I!).— A News special, re
ceived early this morning from Camp Chey
enne River by courier to Rapid City, says:
Frnm twenty to thirty ranchers rode inio
cnniu tn-day. All agree that the Indians
are augmenting their fores and are giow
ing bolder hourly. It »a> ascertained early
this morning that the deserted ranch anil out
buildings of a man named Wilson were
burned to the ground last night, l>i-m« first
looted. M. U. Day, aid to Gov. Mellette,
reports that beside seventy tepees between
Battle and Sprint: creeks, he paw another
large band further down tl.e Cheyenne
River. He thinks tliey number at least 000,
and estimates that they had luuO head of
ponies and a large number of cattle with
them, most of which were stolen. Early
this morning General Carr sent Captain
Stmiton of (lie Sixth Cavalry, 'with his troop,
numbering about sixty men, to scout and
look around for Indians in the Bad Lands.
Three heliograph stations have been es
tablished, one in camp, one ou the top of
the high blufls and onn which had followed
up as nearly as practicable Captain t>te*i
ton's command. A soldier from the helio
graph station reported to General Carr that
Captain Stanton was in ;m engaeement with
tho Indians. General Carr gave orders to
Lieutenant Scott and Troop 1) to go to his
assistance. Later Captain Stantm and
other troops returned. It w&s learned he
had a skirmish with a large party of In
dians heailing for the Bad Lands. Shots
were exchanged in quite a lively manner for
some time. When the Indians escaped to the
Bad Lands Captain Stanton followed them
for some time, but, fearing an ambush, he
withdrew his troops and returned to camp.
PISBBK (S. Dak.), Dec. 10.— George Mor
ris, store-keeper at Cheyenne City, near the
mouth of Cherry Creek, has just arrived.
He says the entire population of twenty
fiimilies, also a number of friendly Indians,
have left there, some going to Fort Ben
nett, some to Oaks, nnd other to Pierre. lie
says just before leaving there night before
last twenty Indians from Sitting Bull's
band arrived and held a big council
with the Cherry Creek Indians to see
whether they should fight or not, and
were joined after the council was
over by U«o Cherokee?, all of whom started
for the Brfd Lands. Morris says during the
time the relugees were getting away to the.
Bad Lunds Bbfcrp firing was heard between
the Indian police anu the hostiles, and that
a battle no doubt ha? been fought, but as
the settlers made haste to reach the towns
they can give no fuither particulars. As
the troops were oidered to that point yester
day it is believed the hostiles were routed
and captured. Morris says Sitting Bull's
Indians are well armed and determined to
avenge Bull's death.
Omaha, Dec. 19.— A special from Camp
Carr on the Cheyenne River says: John
Fainham, a scout, was to-day placed under
arrest. Karuham is suspected of giving in
formation concerning the movements of llm
troops to the hostile?, lie is a squaw man.
The troops are ready for movement as
soon ns orders are received and will have no
difficulty in penetrating the Indian strong
hold. Several easy routes have been found
in and out of the so-called impregnable
stronghold.
Kansas City, Dec. 19.— A special dis
patch says that 1000 Kiekapoo and other
warriors are dancing the ghost dance near
the eastern line of Oklahoma and that
troops are watching them. The report
lacks continuation. A Guthrie d'spatcu
says a number of Creek Indians asserted to
day that their people had not any sympathy
with the Messiah craze, although Sitting
Bull hnd sent couriers to all of the different
tribes to incite an uprising. The messengers
had been successful only with uncivilized
Indians.

" KOCHEN."
American Physicians Experience Much
Trouble in SecnriEg It.
Xew Yoiik, Dec. 19.— A cablegram re
reived in this city says that Koch's lymph
is now known as "Koclien." Several prom
inent physicians, who had gone lo lierlin to
study the new treatment as practiced by
Koch, have returned. Among them were
Dr. 11. P. Loomis, Dr. 11. S. Steams and
Dr. J. li. Llniey. llic two former physi
cians brought with them a small quantity
of lymph, secured from Dr. Libertz, chief
assistant to Dr. Koch. It was obtained
after considerable trouble, for Kocli ob
jected strenuously to supply the fluid to any
but tho^e representing hospitals, and ail
credentials were scrutinized with great care.
The vial of lymph brought by Lnomls was
the last given out before lie sailed. Only a
nominal charge, 28 marks or SO, is mude for
the lymph at the Koch laboratory.
Dr. Loomis said at that rate the quantity
on the open market would bring in thou
sands of dollars. He knew personally that
English physicians had offered as much as
SIOO a drop for the preparation. LoomU'
vial, when diluted, will suffice for about
MCiO injections. In speaking of the effect of
the discovery in Berlin Jxximis said: "The
effect 011 the people of Berlin and the sur
rounding country is something wonderful.
The entire community seems desirous of
paying homage to Dr. Koch."
Loomis said the piofessional ethics would
not perniit him to make his conclusions pub
lic until after he had conveyed them to
members of the profession. He would prob
ably put his observations into the form of a
paper, which he would read before the
Academy of Medicine at an early day. He
said that Dr. Libertz had on file about six
thousand applications for lymph. Among
them was one from Warren Cnlemnn, who was
sent to Berlin by fcjur«e< n-Uencral Hamil
ton to procure some of the lymph for the
Government. Up to the time Loomis left
C'oleman had been unsuccessful, notwith
standing his Ktrnug baclunu. Dr. Loomis ex
prmed much surprise when told that sev
eral vials of lymph had been received in
this country. He said that before he leit
Berlin he had a long talk with Professor
Libertz, who assured him that only two
vials had bet>n sent to America. One of
them was addressed to Secretary Blame
and the other to Dr. Abraham Jucobi,
M unt Sinai Hospital.
Dr. Steams also whs surprised when told
that several vials of lymph had reached
America in advance of his arrival. Theso
New York doctors are confident of the effi
cacy of the lymph in cases of lupus, bone
tuberculosis, etc., but as to its effects on
pulmonary diseases they seam to entertain
some doubt.
Dr. Loomis says that the first injectinn of
Koch s lymph was made in the Bellevue
Hospital to-day at 3 o'clock. A nnmber of
patients were injected with the lyii.ph who
were aflected by different varieties of tuber
culosis, viz.: Tuberculosis of the lungs,
bones, skin and external glands and one
case of lupus. All these and other pa
tients voluntarily submitted themselves
to the experiment. The injec
tion of these and other patients
will be continued as often rs is necessary to
make a complete experimental test of the
method. As soon as this method has been
fully tested the results will be mndo known
to the professors and to the public through
the Aew York Academy of Medicine. If
tho newspapers will avoid publishing any
thing in regard to these experiments until
they shall have been completed they will
confer a very great favor upon the medical
and surgical staff of the hospital.

THE SUBSIDY BILL.
Strong Opposition Developed in
tlie House.
Doubts Expressed of Its Being Passed in Its
Present Shape.
Teller Likely to Follow Stewart in Opposing
tlie Federal Elections Bill— Coast
Semen's Memorial.
Special to The Morsixo t'Ai.r.
Washington, Dec. 10.— The Subsidy
Tonnage Combination Bill will probably oc
cupy the llouso for a day or two at least,
and what the final result will be is very
doubtful, as the opposition has not yet fully
crystallized. The members have been busy
with other work that has been assigned to
them, or that is of especial interest to them,
and they have not had time to thoroughly
examino this proposition. There are some
members who oppose all subsidy schemes
on general principles, and therefore do not
have to look very deeply into the question
to determine where they stand, but some
others will be inlluenced mostly by the ques
tion of cost. Some favor the mail subsidy
proposition, who will not vole for the tounnge
bounty scheme, ngainst which there is the
strongest opposition. The idea of the
friends of these two DKMUU was that by
combining them they would bring together
the supporters cf both propositions and
so secure the passage of a 'measure that
would give all they wanted, but the indica
tions are that they have
UADK A MISCALCULATION
And have materially weakened their posi
tion by the amalgamation. The fact that a
majority voted to consider the matter does
not injure ihe passage of the bill proposed.
Snnie less comprehensive scheme may be
adopted or the whole thing may fail. At
present they are poino: over the whole ques
tion in committee of tlie whole, and a num
ber of very material amendments will be
proposed during Mie course of its considera
tion. The outcome may be a bill for a mail
subsidy merely between this country and
Central American purls. The Democrats
are hopeful of knocking the whole thing
out.
The consideration of the bill will lead a
nnmber of Republicans to vote against it.
Cannon, Cha<iiMin of the Appropriations
Committee, said to the California Associa
ted Press correspondent to-day that he did
not consider the taking up of the bill in the
House as signifying that It would pass.
" We have plenty of money," he sail, " for
the ordinary expenses of the Government,
but we are rapidly approaching that point
where we will have to be, careful abait iu
cr.rring unnecessary obligations. We are
happily near that iioint where we
WILL HAVE TO ECONOMIZE.
"We have revenues enough to run the
Government this year aud next year aud
fiji year after, and so on, but we have none
to spare."
Cannon evidently does not expect the
Subsidy Bounty Hill to pass in auy form,
but believes that there may be a possibility
of the passage of a modified mail subsidy
bill. The conversation drifted on to the
general subject of finances and the pros
pects of financial legislation during the ses
sion. Cannon said significantly that the
Senate seemed to be acting on the assump
tion Mint they could enact financial legisla
tion without the aid of the House. "It
would be tlie best thing for the tiuances of
tliis country," he said, "if this Congress
could end to-night/

STEWART'S SPXXCB.
Stewart's speech in opposition to the Fed
eral Election Hill was ihe feature of the
Senate proceedings to-lay and is the prin
cipal topic of conversation here to-night. It
is the general opinion here that Stewart's
bolt will encourage other Republican Sena
tors to follow rait Like Stewart, Senator
Teller (Colorado) is very anxious for silver
legislation this sc3slon, nnd it is expected
his opposition to the Election Bill will nud
expression in a speech to be delivered
soon. Very few Senators were in their
seats this afternoon wnen Stewart arose to
address the Senate, but beforo he had been
speaking ten minutes most Of the seats were,
filled by both Republican and Democratic
Senators, who listened with the clos
est attention. The Democratic Senators
crowded closely around him, and frequently
clapped their hands in response to Stew
art's vigorous denunciations of tlie hill.
The galleries frequently broke hito ap
plause, which was not stopped t>y the pre
siding officer's admonition. At the close of
the speech, Seuator Teller shook Stewart
warmly by the hund, and the Democratic
Senators crowded around him and did liko
wise.
Although his scheme is universally looked
upon as a vngnrous financial proposition,
entirely visionary and utterly iin practicable,
Stanford's speech to-day was listened to
with attention by every Senator ou the floor.
Stanford read his speech from manuscript.
SHEBMAN'S FINANCE BILL.

THE SENATE.
Stanford Explains His Lodn Bill — Btewart
Opposes the Lod?e Bill.
Washington-, Dec. 19.— After the com
pletion of the routine business in the Senate
to-day Stanford addressed the Chamber on
his bill to increase the circulating medium.
He explained the working of his bill, which
is practically the same as his Land Loan
Bin, introduced during the last session.
At t lie conclusion of Stanford's remarks
the bill was referred to the Committee on
Finance.
The Senate then took up the Printing De
ficiency Hill, on which som#dlscus9ion took
place reflecting on the House for the in
adequacy of the regular appropriation bills,
thus necessitating frequent deficiency bills.
The bill passed.
A resolution was introduced by Gray on
the subject of reciprocity with Mexico and
Canada. It provides that for the expansion
of the markets and the promotion of friendly
intercourse with the Governments on tlie
northern and southern boundaries it is
recommended that the President of the
United Mates institute negotiations with
the countries of Great Britain and Mexico
whereby the reduction and total repeal of
import duties on the leading articles of pro
duction o? the peoplu of those countries may
be effected by combined and co-operative
legislation.
A bill by Ingalls to allow the exchange of
the interest-bearing debt for legal-tender
notes was referred to the Finance Com
mittee.
A resolution by Manderson was referred
to the Committee on Indian Affairs, in
structing tiiat coitynittee 10 inquire into the
condition of the Indian tribes of >"orth and
South Dakota, Montana and elsewhere, the
steps necessary t0 disarm them, etc.
Ihe Senate bill for a public buildlnc at
Fresno, Cnl., to cost 575,000, was placed on
the calendar.
The Election Bill was taken up aud Bate
anil (iibseu argued against it.
(Stewart m. .Me an argument against the
bill on the eround that the attempt to exe
cute it in the would be disastrous to
both races. He was a friend of the colored
uian and deeply sympathized with him, but
lie could not ask him to put his life in
jeopardy in order to light a political battle
for his (Stewart's) advantage. He whs
equally a friend to the white man, and de
mrtd to refrain from auy act which might
justify the white man iv making war upon
the defenseless race which Congress had
enfranchised. Whatever was dime in the
matter of the protection of suffrage in the
South, unless done through the voluntary
action of the people in that section,
would liave to result in one of tuo things.
If the negro was protected by force, the
same force would inevitably be driven to the
necessity of destroying his enemy. That
Involved tho enslavement and linal extermi
nation of the whiles. The employment of
force would result ultimately in iheextermi
natinn of either tiie, blacks or whites. If
military power wae to be used in the exeeu
tiuo of the p. nding bill, then the bill
should bii defeated. If it w ns to bo a dead
letter, wliy pass it? Public opinion at the
South was entirely agaiust it. Instead of
protecting the colored man it would b:ing
upon him persecution and misery, if not
death. So assumption of party necessity
could justify such an act. It was the plain
duty oi the Semite to trust to natural causes
in the hope that they would remedy the evil.
The bill ought not to pass, because it never
would be enforced; because it would con
solidate Southern whiles; because it would
increase sectional animosity and kindle
anew discords of the past.
Stewart recalled the speeches in opposi
tion to the Force Bill of 1K75 miide by Sena
tors Hoar and Hawley, then Kepresenta
tives. Among those voting against the bill
Stewart re ailed Foster, Gailield, William
Walftr Phelps, Kasson aud Kellogu. He
sugcested that Supervisors and other officers
wiuld become marked men, and from the re
port if investigating committees and all
Knowledge obtained uurlng the past twenty
years it was plain what their f;ite would be,
unless Congress was disposed to proceed to
a remedy under the Constitution— that of
denying representation on account of ex
clusion from or obstacles to the exercise of
the franchise. The uuly remedy that ex
isted was in the enforcement of laws al
ready ou the statute books, and in the as
surance that no pressure from the outside
would be exercised. Iv his judgment
the solid South was maintained by the
use of the cry that it was in
tended on the part of those who
con ti oiled the genrnri Government to inter
fere with their local affairs. Tho moment
such a cry was effectually proven to be
wilhout fi undation, the South could not any
longer be kept solid. The sectional party
there had already begun to disintegrate.
That disintegration must necessarily bring
about protection to the negro vote. The or
ganization that is now inesistible in some
Mates in* suppressing that vote would be
among the earliest to bid for it when they
found it necessary for their existence.
Hoar had the provisions of the Force Bill
of 1875 read for the purpose of justifying
tho opposition to it by himself and other
Kepublicaus and to shuw that there was no
inconsistency in their support of the pend

Brutal Indian Murderers Die on tis
Gallows,
Missorr.A (Mont.), Dec. 10.— The greatest
hanging whicli ever took place in the North
west occurred this morning, when La La
See, Pierre Paul, Antley and Pnscnle, four
Indian murderers, were hanged at the Court
house here. All died game, Pierre Paul and
Antley smilingly bidding their friends good
by. Twenty minute* after the trap sprung
all were dead, their necks being broken.
The crimes for which the Indians wero
hanged were mest cowardly and brutal.
I'ascale killed a prospector named J. M.
Dunn in tlie spring of 1889, near Damere
ville. Dunn traded horses with him, and
when lie refused to trade back the Indian
shot him, taking the horse and what money
he had. Pascale hid the body in the brush,
where the bones were discovered months
later by another Indian, to whom Pascale
admitted the crime. The hones were identi
fied by remnants of clothing, and Pascale
was arrested.
Antley 's crime was participation in the
murder of three white prospectors, McDon
ald, Seeley and Thompson, in the fall of
IHB7 at Wolf Creek, near Tobacco Plains.
The prospectors were surprised at theli
camp-fire by a party of six Kooteuai ludians
and muraered in cold blood. Two of the
Indians were captured soon after and
lynched by the people of Damersville. Ant
ley remained at lurge till last summer.
La La See and Pierre Paul killed two
white men, names not known, in August,
1887, and threw the bodies into Jack River,
where they were found by a hal {.breed
woman, wlio was cautioned by the murderers
to 6ay nothing about the bodies. She noti
fied the authorities and the murderers were
arrested last summer. The murders wore
unprovoked.
The four prisoners were tried and con
victed before Judge Marshal at Mi^oula last
fall.
The four Indians protested their innocence
before dying. Their bodies will be taken
to St. Ignatius Mission for burial. Several
prominent chiefs were in attendance at the
execution, but there was no protesting demon
stration on their part or from the members
of the tribe as tiad been anticipated. About
oue huudred persons were present.

CUTICDRAJEMEDIES
The Greatest Skin Cures, Blood Pu
rifiers and Humor Remedies
of Modern Times.
I h.ive used the CTTinrRA Remedies, and find
th.it there Is nothing equal to them in tne removal
and cure of acne, pimples, etc. Some time since
my brother was troubled with a ringworm of a very
malignant type, and the caustics that were applied
had little or no effect; at times, in fact, aggravating
it. one set ot the Outiuuba Kkmki>if_s completely
removed It. A friend of mina was trouble! with a
running ear and an ulcer In his scaip that suppurated
continually. Physician* and their remedies proved
useless. At last, his rather, after spendlug several
hundred dollars In trying tq cure his son, tried
Cuticuba Rkuedibn, and before ten dollars wera
spent for them my friend was completely cured
and. with the exception or a small scar In his scalp,
one would never know of his having had such asore
In his head. Ilia hearing Is perfectly sound, and li s
ear is as good as Its companion to-day.
