Wrecks Strewn Alone; The Texas Coast. PABNELL SPEAKS IN COMMONS In Snpn.rt of His Amendment to Xne Address in Reply to tne Queen's Speech. London, Auk. 24. In the House of Com mons this evening Mr. Parnell spoke in sup port of bis proposed amendment to the ad dress in reply to the Queen.'s speech. The amendment expresses the fear that tenant farmers in Ireland will experience great dif ficulty in paying rents during the winter and numerous evictions will follow, causing widespread and social disorder. It depre cates any attempt to transfer the loss due to inability to pay rents from the owners of land to the taxpayers of Great Britain and Ireland by an extension of State assisted purchase on the basis of rents fixed when prices were higher than they are now. Mr. Parnell said that the people of Ireland had every reason to be satisfied with the progress which had brought them to their present position. With a majority of the Liberals favoring autonomy patience would make theirs a winning card. He admitted that the rent question would probably be a source of trouble. Mr. Gladstone's purchase system would have safely settled the land question and without a settlement it would be impos sible to settle the Irish question. The gov ernment must reduce the rent at the ex pense of the landlords or of the taxpayers of the kingdom. Mr. Parnell argued that the way to develop the resources of Ireland was to allow the Irish themselves to develop them. He accused the government of en couraging the landlords to make wholesale evictions, knowing that agrarian crimes al ways followed evictions. The Irish, he said, would try to be patient, but the exactions by landlords of impossible rents might pro duce exasperation. The landlords would then clamor for coercion, which would come, and which would not stop at criminals, but would attack political opponents. Mr. Par nell suggested as an alleviation of the situa tion that judicial tenancies be fixed at three years instead of fifteen years and that Tents be revised. He concluded by expressing his belief that the Irish people would never sub mit to a government not tneir own. Mr. Gladstone said tne government naa taken an unusual course by going outside of the speech from the throne. He intimated that he would take no part upon tne division on tne amendment to tne aaaress offered by the Parnellite members be cause he deprecated any attempt to force a definite as well as a premature ex pression of opinion upon the policy which government had foreshadowed for its future guidance. He thought the policy of the government a very complex one. The gov ernment evidently intended to introduce a large scheme of land purchase. Was the tenant to be treated upon the real rentable value of his holdings and the landlord upon the basis of the judicial rent and was the Slate to make up the difference? No parlia ment could ever execute such a fatal propo sition. The Unionists issued a whip this evening against the Parnellite amendment to the address in reply to tne yu: 3n s speecn. air. Chamberlain will move the adjournment of the debate to-moi.-ow, thus securing the floor for the opening of the discussion on Thursday, when he will offer a motion for a division upon the Parnellite amendment. Mr. Gladstone will start for Munich to-mor row for a three weeks' holdiday. He he? ar ranged to return at a moment's notice. SRVHK AT THE ALTAR. An Intended Bride Throws tne mar riage License In Her Intoxicated Lover's Face. Chattanooga, Aug. 24.

" The Woodbury murderer Insane. Waterburt, Ct., Aug. 24. Dr. C. A. Ward, of this city, who has examined the murderer Drakely at Litchfield jail pro nounces him insane, partly from hereditary causes, but directly "from dissipation. He does not think Drakely realizes the gravity of his crime. , A Cashier Who Warn Too Kind. BpsTON, Aug. 24. George R. Chapman, for thirteen years cashier of the Merchants National bank, has resigned and his resigna tion has been accepted. President Franklin Haven, jr., says that Chapman was too kind and too easy for a man in his position, but that the bank's accounts are all right. It is rumored that Ur. Chapman was mixed np in the speculations which resulted in the fail ure of C. P. Mudge and that certain brokers are very angry because Chapman loaned Mudge about $20,000, for which he received a memorandum note, and when he failed Chapman took $20,000 from Madge's account and placed in its stead the memorandum note. The brokers who lost mony by Mudge's failure have appointed a committee to wait npon the directors of the Merchants' bank to ascertain what action the bank would take to make good their loss es, and it is said the directors are considering a proposition to make good some part of the losses. One of the committee says that so far as the brokers are concerned Mr. Chapman has done nothing to call for prosecution. Whether the directors would do anything in this direction is a question.

THE RELBASE OP CCTTIPiCi. Lawyer Sedgwick Still Pursuing His mission. Washington, Aug. 24. Minister Jackson has telegraphed the department of State confirming the reported release of Catting. The release will not affect in the least Mr. Sedgwick's mission. The government does not at present concern itself with any ques tion of damages due Catting, but will use the information obtained through Mr. Sedg wick in the furtherance of its negotiations in securing a change in the Mexican laws in so far as they are given a light to try Ameri cans for acts committed in the United States. The Arresures-Mondragon case is still a sub ject of correspondence. At present the only grievance of which the government can take official cognizance is that of kidnapping Arresures, wno was domiciled on this side ot the border, it cannot be expected that Mon dragon will be bui rendered for trial in the United states, a special treaty clause inter vening to warrant the refusal on Mexico's part to surrender one of her citizens for any crime.

Prospects and Indications on the Eve Of the Convention. Columbus, Ohio, August 24. The candi dates and delegates to the Republican State convention have been coming in on every train to-day and things are beginning to put on the usual appearance of an approaching convention. The candidates and their friends are working earnestly but quietly, and there is not as much bustle and excite? ment as there generally is. The present Secretary of State, General J. S. Robinson, seems to have the field pretty much to him self and will probably be renominated by acclamation, but a slight opposition this evening wants to nominate Daniel J. Ryan. The only noticeable contests are for the supreme judgeship and school commissioner. Hon. L. J. Critchfield of Franklin, Connty Judge Cox of Hamilton and Judge Marshall J. Williams of Fayette are the candidates and have about an equal showing, with Wil liams possibly a little n the lead, with Judge Cox second. The friends of. Critchfield are confident,' how ever, and claim he will go into the convention to-morrow with as strong a following as any of the candidates. Judge Knowlee, of Marietta, is also a candi? date, but as yet has exhibited but little strength. Hon. W. SI.. Matthews, TJ. H. Hester and Orange Fraser are candidates for the clerkship of the Supreme court. Mat thews and Fraser are abpnt even. The can didates for school commissioner, of whom Professor Eli Tappan, Elijah Burgess, Jay P. Treat and E. S. Cox are in the field, em body more interest than is usually centered in this portion of the ticket. Professor Treat, of Geneva, has an assured lead and is named as the winner, but in spite of this Professor Burgess and his friends are very active and are building up a good vote. The other candidates, while not prominent, are hopeful and will cling to the last. ' William Hahne, of Richland,-is the most prominent candidate for the board ot public works. The delegates from Hamilton connty are considerably torn np over the ed itorials in the Commercial Gazette cautioning the convention not to have any thing to do with that delegation as they were a set of bums and ringsters. A prominent delegate said to-mgni tnat it was wholly un true and done through malice; that the Com mercial made the statement because it did not like two of the delegates, Alexander Sands and T. C. Campbell. He said the del egation was composed of the best men ever sent to a convention. There will be 732 votes in the convention. Base Ball Yesterday. Detroit Philaderphias 10, Detroits 8.

Dr. Ward and their guides went to Hoyle pond this morning, bat though it was a traditional fisherman's day, the sky being overcast, the President's luck seemed to have deserted him and the total result of the morning's sport was a three pound salmon and a small speckled trout. While the Pres ident was on the jaunt Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Folsom sat among the ladies on the hotel porch and watched a game of lawn ten nis in front of the building. The only ex citing episode of the day was the report that a bear had swam across the lake. The guides who bad brought the story in found much food for hilarity in the recital of how easily the bear got away from some city hunters who were after it. A murder In a Police Omce. Montgomery, Ala. Aug. 24. Hai.is Gun- ter, a lawyer of this city, entered police headquarters about 1 o'clock this morning attired in his night clothes with a shotgun in his hand and shot W. D.

Starln. New York, Aug. 24. The story that J. H. Starin had sold Glen Island and had bought Pawson Park near New Haven is denied.

Glen Island is good enough for me and I am not in the market for any more islands." TELEGRAPHin JOTTINGS.

BOARD OF SBLfiOTlBEN. miss Foster's Jewell Street Home Visited A Favorable Re tort Br The Committee Dr. Winchell Testifies To Excellence Of The Institution. A regular meeting of the Board of Select men was held last evening. Present, Select men Tyler (presiding), Feldman, Treat,Beech er, Brown and Klenke. Selectman Klenke reported that the Whal- ley avenue bridge needed repairs to make it safe and the committee on roads and bridges recommended that this board request the Board of Public Works to appoint a commit tee to act with a committee from this Board in regard to the matter. The committee's recommendation was adopted. The Pearl street bridge in Westville, was also reported as in need of painting. The work naa peen oroerea. Selectman Feldman reported that himself and Selectman Brown had visited Miss Fos ter's baby farm on Jewell street so palled and found the children contented and happy. He said they went from cellar to garret in both houses, inspected " the food and bedding, and found the place as clean and neat as could be ex- pec tea in a nonse ot tnat kind, mere were sheets on the beds, and they were clean ano neat. They found nq vermin anywhere. They examined the flour, meal, milk and food, and found them good enough for any one. They then visited the storeroom and found everything all right. "So far as the meat was concerned," said Mr. Feldman, "it was as good as I have in my house. The outhouses were no woxs.e than in many other places.. Miss poster said she bad them cleaned last fall and. should have them cleaned ftgain this fall. J would say frankly and freely, Mr. Chairman, without knowing what tne bouse baa been heretofore, that to-dav it is in better condition than great many houses and tenements in this city." Mr. Feldman said he told Miss Foster that she must make monthly reports to the Board and she promised to do so. one re gretted that she had not made her reports recmlarlv and said that there would be no cause of complaint in this regard hereafter. In closing Mr. Feldman said he proposed to visit Miss Foster's place every month regu; larly hereafter and there wouia De no mis take about it. Mr. Brown corroborated what had been said bv Mr. Feldman. Mr. Treat said he had seen some of the members of the Board of Health on the sub ject of baby farms and they had told him that they thought the Boaid of Selectmen were the proper authority to look after such places. Dr. Winchell entered the room at this time. He said that he called at Miss Fos ter's place yesterday by accident. He said he had known much of Miss Foster from the time she was with the Home for the Friendless. He said that Miss Foster at present had seven children of her own by adoDtion: thev were children that had been left with her and then had been deserted by those leaving them. The doctor then read from his memorandum and said that he found that in one large sleeping room there were eight single iron bedsteads, one double iron bedstead and two - wooden bedsteads. He found seven beds in other rooms all sup plied with mattresses, and one good sized lively bedbug. He said in the attic he found plenty of bedding stowed away and in the cellar several tons of coal. The doc tor said that things were not in that order that he had seen them on some other occasions, as Miss Foster had been overhauling and cleaning and had not got set to rights. The doctor said that Miss Foster had made some mis takes in taking very young children and she had done tbis out of pure sympathy for these children. He further said that after his visit to Miss Foster's he called on two responsible ladies in Westville. who said that they had visited Miss Foster's house at various times and thev believed the children were well cared for and very much regretted that so much had been said absnt the place, as they considered it entirely uncalled for. It is, said the doctor, a real home for orphan chil dren and for children of nnnatural parents, and although the compensation re ceived for their care was some times very meagre, yet .they were all well cared for. The doctor read letters endorsing Miss Foster from Rev. Mr. San- ford of New York and Rev. Dr. Vibbert of Fair Haven. Continuing, the doctor said that the public needed just such institutions as that of Miss Foster's. He thought such an attack as had been made on that lady was entirely uncalled for. H. Beecher was given permission to erect a barbed wire fence in front of his property adjoining the to wn farm, and simi lar permission was granted Xjancrait .Bro thers in Fair Haven East. Bills were approved as follows: New farm, $12; roads and bridges, $48; almshouse, $40.50; general account, $2.50; temporary loan, $30,375. A New Haven Pastor In Ohio. The Mansfield, Ohio, Herald of Monday last says: The auditorium of the Congregational church was filled yesterday morning with the many friends and admirers of Dr. J. E. Twitchell, a favorite pastor of the church in former years, who had accepted a warm in vitation to occupy the pulpit. He preached an interesting and tnougnuui discourse, which stiuck home to hearts that are trou bled and weary of life. His themf was Peace." which he said could only be ob tained through ti ast in God. The sermon was embellished with apnropriate quotations from the poets and hymn writers and with pathetic illustrations. The selected hymns sung by the choir were appropriate to the thoughts contained in the sermon, which was listened to with rapt interest and was con soling and solemnizing in its effect. Two new members were admitted into the church on confession of faith. The solo by Mr. Charles J. Harris and the duet by the Misses Smith and Carrothers were well 'rendered. In the.evening Dr. Twitchell conducted the servioe, but the attendance was not so large as in the morning. He returns to his charge at New Haven, Conn., this week. mANV imPROVEmENTS n Runnell's Grand Opera House and museum Handsome Changes made During The Summer A New Scale of Prices. " Proprietor G. B. Bunnell, of Bunnell's Grand Opera House and Museum, has made some extensive and handsome improvements in the place during the summer, which will be highly appreciated by the patrons of the place. The general appearance of the audi torium has been greatly changed and many minor improvements in all parts of the house will add to the comfort and pleasure of the patrons. All of the wood work excepting the gallery fronts has been finished in ma hogany. Two new boxes, having entrances from the audience room, have been added. The floor of the halls has been separated by mahogany railing covered with plush into the orchestra and parquet. The orchestra will contain nine rows of plush upholstered seats of the most improved pattern, with the exit by side doors to the street. This will avoid the crowds so often experienced by the patrons of the house meeting in the general passageway trom tbe bail. The gallery fronts have been painted a light drab tint, the medallion heads being ornamented in different tones of bronze. The seats on the floor and galleries have been re painted and on eacb side or tbe proscenium are large miirors in elaborate bronze frames. The main entrance hall has been divided by heavy mahogany doors to cut off drafts of cold air and to shut out the noise from the street and Curio hall. The Curio hall has been almost entirely changed, both in arrangement and appear ance. A new stage tor ligbt plays bas been put in and the whole interior richly painted and ornamented. Several new attractions will be added to this room and it will be de signed also for a smoking room. The front of the building has been painted an imita tion of Milwaukee brick, the wood work sboqt the doors being finished in mahogany. Bennett & Mouiton's Opera company in comic opera will open the season at this house on Monday, September 6th, they playing for a week, witb Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday matinees. Another thing Mr. Bunnell has done and that is to alter the scale of prices. All the new front rows of orchestra chairs are provided with hat racks, foot rests and umbrella stands. These will be fifty cents each. All the rest of the lower part of the house will be 25 cents, instead of 30, as last year. . All the gallery seats will be 15 cents each, instead of 10 and 2Q, according to loca tion as last year. One-half of the gallery seats last year were cents eacb.
