BIDS FOR NEW WAR VESSELS. Competition BrluR. Out A PlentifHl Supply of neir And Orlstnal Dt Isna. Washingtok, April 1. The designs which have been received by the Secretary of the Navy in answer to advertisements published in American and European news papers since last August for an armed cruiser and a powerful battleship were open ed at the department to-day. Designs and plans are submitted by the following firms and individuals: From England, the Thames Iron Shipbuilding company, London: the Barrow Shipbuilding company and Mr. Watt of Berkenhead. From France, A. H. Grand- jean, marine engineer, St. Nasier. From New Zealand, Captain M. S. Clayton of Auckland, and from the United States, Lieu tenant W. I. Chambers, U. S. N., chief con structor, T. D. Wilson, U. S. N., Construe torS. H. Pok, U. S. N., N. L. Tonns of New York, and F. L. Norton of Washington, D. C. The naval architects of the United States were well represented as well by the qnality as the number of plans. The bureau of construction as represented by its chief, Mr. Wilson, presented designs for both battle ship and cruiser. The plans from New Zealand included but a rough tracing representing some special ideas of the designer, who is Lloyd's surveyor at Auckland. It was expected that one or two other noted firms in France and Germany would offer plans, but press of business ap parently prevented. Secretary Whitney feels somewhat elated over the results of his efforts in this direction and this evening said: The notable thing abont this matter is that an advertisement of the department for designs has at last brought real competition com petition from persons entitled to considera tion. Heretofore it bas been a form. The advertisement was pnt out under a law pass ed in 1882. It was the first law passed by Congress iu recent yearn authorizing new ships. It provided that before any of the vessels hereby authorized shall be contracted for or commenced the Secretary of the Navy shall by proper advertisement and notice in vite all engineers and mechanics of established reputation and all repntable makers of vessels, steam engines, and especially -all naval constructors, steam engineers and ordnance officers of the navy, to submit plans, etc On this occasion I determined to make it at tractive if possible. The first thing was to allow outsiders plenty of time. " The prepar ation of plans by our officers takes many months. So when they were set to work the public were invited to do the same. The advertisement has been rnnniug seven months. It was also decided to allow a proper compensation for any accepted de sign. I ma was new. lho consequence has been some most valuable de signs from establishments of standing. No time has been lost for the bureaus are not ready yet with their designs. I shall appoint as fair a board as I can constitute to exam ine and report. Persons interested in the subject as we are detect new ideas at once in the plans. X believe tne spirit is becoming established in the department of welcoming new ideas from any quarter. The trnth is if we can begin our new construction by utilizing the best ideas all will soon not only make their own, but our inventive genius which is of the first order wiil carry us ahead of others." Oar Debt Twelve million Lc. Washington, April 1. The reduction in the public debt during Maroh amounted to $12,808,467 and for the first nine months of the present year $70,912,824.

St. John, N. B., April 1. A dispatch from Moncton to-day contains news' of the stalled trains on the northern division of the Inter-Colonial railway. A break has been made from St. Flavien to Cambellton and two blocked trains between those points are working their way out through a tunnel of snow. Fully fifteen hundred passengers, in cluding seven hundred immigrants, are halted on their route and the railway author ities are straining every nerve to get good to the passengers and the fifteen handred men trying to dig them out. One train is at Bivier du Loupe and another at St. Flavien, Sir Oharles and Lady Tuper being passengers on the latter. All the northern mails since last Thursday from Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are at St. Flavien and seven mail clerks are guarding them. Fully one-half the conductors, bag- gagemasters and express managers that run on the line are hemmed in at this point. A dispatch from New Castle says the Quebeo night train, the first that has passed the New Brunswick borders since Friday last, has worked its way through. It has seven ears all laden with people who have been delayed by the storm of the week, exhausted and worn by their long sojourn amid snow drifts and frost. They are freed at last only by the superhuman efforts of fifteen hundred msn who have worked night and day. On Tues day the shovellers were so exhausted that P. S. Archibald, chief engineer, started with a special train and all the men he could collect for the scene. He arrived at Campbellton, pushed his way through to St. Flavien and last night about 8 o'clock broke the block ade. People have no idea what amount of snow there is on the New Brunswick bor ders. In order to clear the track of snow five terraces were made from the rail to the summit of the bank and each line of men threw to the terrace above and in many places snowdrifts are thirty feet in depth. During the week' so journ passengers endured great hardships, although the railway authorities did all they could to make them comfortable. It was fortunate for tfie women and children that so many sleepers were snowed in with them and no scruples were observed in taking coal faom cars on the sides to supply them with fuel. The main line has been opened and a canal cut through the snow at enor mous labor and expense and yet the work is but half done. Every branch is blocked, every car on the siding snowed under and it will take more than a week to get the road in any kind of running order. A Well Deserved Sentence. Niw York, Aprii 1. Joseph G.

London, April 1. A division was taken upon the rule of cloture in Commons to-night and it was carried by a vote of 361 to 253, The first reading of the crimes bill was agreed to without a division. Mr. Parnell, resuming the debate on the Irish crimes bill, said that Parliament had been put in possession of the com plete plan of the government with all its naked dishonesty. The government while pressing coercion with a flash that was indecent had refused to follow the recom mendations of the land commission appoint el by this same government and presuma bly constituted with a view of its making report as nearly in accord with Tory prejudice as decency would per mit. If the coercion bill - were passed the last barrier of defense standing between the Irish tenants and their wholesale robbery would be removed. The only hope of settling the land question lay in the passage of a jnstly regulated land purchase act. If this were done with the establishment of fair prices and the ab sence of coercion the Irish tenants would fulfill their obligations. The power which the bill gave to magistrates, which among other things permitted them to imprison their political opponents, Mr. Parnell denounced as absolute despotism and depicted with surpassing eloquence the horrors of the bill, which he declared disappointed all hopes of better times which just now seemed to be danwing upon Ireland, He urgently counselled the people of Ireland to submit to the injustice of the bill rather than ' resort to retaliation. Mr. Parnell's speech was one of the best he has ever made in the House of Commons. It was intensely dramatic throughout and commanded the close attention of every per? son within the sound of his voice. His per oration was remarkably effective and cre ated a marked seesation. In low, solemn tones he began it, but increasing in force and fire as he proceeded, his utter ances thrilled even those who scoffed at his cause. Mr. Gladstone and the entire oppo sition Liberals, Radicals and Parnellites frequently applauded Mr. Parnell and Mr. of the (jiaaatone ana many Liberal leaders exbn ssed their belief after the close of the debate that the Irish leader's address had completely overwhelmed Mr. Balfour and left that gen tleman's case as he presented it, a oomplete wreck. Lord Hartington and Mr. Conybeare spoke briefly for and againgt the biil respectively and Mr. T. P. O'Connor moved to adjourn. Mr. Gladstone in supporting Mr. O'Connor's motion said there were strong reasons why the debate should be adjovrned rather than closed. He defended Mr. Parnell's delay moving hia amendment, saying that the Irish leader's presentation of his case was one which demanded another night at least for discussion. Sir William Hareonrt said the policy of the Liberal Unionists was now shown to be coercion, pure and simple. Mr. O'Connor's motion was rejected, 361 to 254. A NOTED BVRDLAR CAPTURED. Surprised In His Sleep and Nipped Before He Has Time to Sboot. New Yobk, April 1. John Talbot, one of the most dangerous and notorious burglars in the country, was arrested this morning by Central office detectives on a charge of being: implicated in numerous robberies which have been committed in different parts of the United States during the past year, the principal one being the robbery from Miller & Co.

Having tried numberless so-called remedies and physicians of all schoohs, without relief, there seems to be no hope. Many such have as a last resort tried Athlophoros; and to their surprise and joy have found that it was a safe, sure and quick enre. Athlophoros is not an experiment ; thousands have been cured by its use and they testify as to its value. Waterbury, Conn., Oct. 11, 1885. I would have Athlophoros if I had to pay ten dollars a dose for it. It has done what our best physicians, aftej fourteen years of intense Buffering, could not do during that time. I toojc every known medicine for neuralgia of the stomach, but found no re lief at all until I took Athlophoros. The ef fect was magical. All pain disappeared, and my health was so much improved as to cause general comment. I cannot speak too highly of the merits of Athlophoros. George L. Pease. For three months I was confined to the house with inflammatory rheumatism. So severe was my affliction the doctors prescrib ed for me forty grains of morphine a day, besides steaming me for five hours each day, aud many other doses. Notwithstanding I had three physicians, their combined skill did not give me any relief, so, finally be coming discouraged, I determined to let the disease do its work, had a pair of crutches made, and nervously waited for the worst to come, when a friend came to see me and ad vised me to try Athlophoros. I took the first dose at six in the evening and two more doses during the night. The next morning, after three months' sickness, I went to work, greatly to the astonishment of my many friends, who all thought I wonld never get around again. 1 am a letter carrier and widely known here, and Athlophoros cured me, and it will cure anybody suffering with rheumatism. W. B. Goodalk, Hartford, Conn.
