The Cabinet devoted the whole of to-day's session to the consid eration of the report of the select commit tee on roval grants.

J ii v- J 41 ' u 1 1 V tilltilll til U U1U11UVO Ul gmeer tnrougli tne House, and he Unas his chief difficulty is to formulate a proposal acceptable to Mr. Gladstone and his fol lowers. Mr. Gladstone himself man ifests no disposition to be captious, but it is extremely doubtful if the leader of the opposition will be able to rally to .his support all the various types of po litical belief of which the Liberal party is made up, even if he lend his adherance to the most moderate proposals the govern ment can be expected radical wine of the Li to make. That the beral party will stand out, no matter wnat j - T . - . - X.I r. Gladstone decides. is very certain, for their opposition to any lurtner grants to royalty out of the publio treasury amounts to a crazes but the gov ernment relies on Mr. Gladstone's strength with the country to reconcile tho tax-payers of his party to their proposals. The position of Mr. Gladstone in this matter is rather unique. Though the leader of the opposition to the government, he stands between the government and its detractors; though the idol of tho very classes who take every opportunity to show their dislike for the Queen, he stands up boldly in defense of her privileges and prerogatives. . He argues that to refuse the moderate demands which the Queen now makes for her grandchildren would be a dishonorable repudation of the solemn compact entered into between the royal family and Parliament. Ho points out that the present allowance to members the royal family amounts to only 170.000 a year, while in the time of George HI the aggregate reached into the millions. Ho is willing that an understanding shall be had that the sums now asked for Prince Albert Victor and Princess Louise shall be the last grants made for these purposes, but he is nuwilling to insist that this proviso ehall be incorporated in terms in the act making the grant. There can bo no better indication of tho effect upon the publio mind of the proposal to lurther pension the scions of royalty than that furnished by yesterday' election in Marylebone, where the phenomenal cutting down of the old-time Conservative majority is attributed altogether to the agitation of the question of the grants. The preparations for the popular demon' etratiou in Hyde Park, to-morrow, to pro test against tho grants are on an enormous scale; aud it is expected that the working population of London will turn out en masse to add their voice to the howl of con demnation which is heard from other parts of the kingdom. Mr. William Kandall Creraer. the Gladstonian member for Shore ditcb, will preside. Tho Tories by no means distress them selves over the obvious differences which the grant proposals have developed in the Liberal ranks, and there is reason to believe that when the question comes up in the House on Monday ample scope will uo given the opposition to widen the breach already existing in their ranks by a judicious en couragement of the expression of the con tradictory views on the subject entertained within the party. The Conservative man agers hopo that the approval of the gov ernment proposals by Gladstone. Money, and the other milder Liberals, who favor moderate concessions to the Queen's wishes will result in a lasting rupture in tho Lib eral party. An Ovation to rarnelL - Edinburgh, July 20. The freedom of the city was conferred upon Mr. Parneli to day. In reply to the address accompany ing the presentation Mr. Parneli said that the Irish people would accept the tributo as another proof of the near triumph of their legitimate aspirations for freedom.' Keferringto the special commission ap pointed to investigate the Times charges against tho Parnellites, Mr. Parneli said that if he had known it would block any inquiry into the Piggott conspiracy he would never have entered the court. The presentation took place in the Corn Exchange, and it was packed to the doors, while hundreds were unable to gain admit tance. The Earl of Aberdeen was in the chair. Mr. Parneli was given an enthusias tic reception, the immense audience rising find cheering for several minutes. Deputa tions fromjall the Liberal societies in Scot land presented addresses. Mr. Gladstone in a letter to the Earl of Aberdeen wrote: "The time has not yet arrived for detailing the memorable experience of Mr. Parneli dur ing the last two yearn. I believe that ex- 5erieucetobo unparalleled in the history of Iritish statesmen in Parliament lor tho past two centuries. I consider the Parnell Jtes to bo in the best tense Conservatives. They have been a restorative force of great value to the peace of Ireland and tho honor of England, while the tyranny of the gov ernment has deepened the aversion of Ire land." Mr. Parnell's reception was ahead of any thing ever known in the city, excepting only the periodical ovations to Mr. Glad stone. Over seventy thousand people lined the route over which Mr. Parneli and his party drove from tho station to tho hotel. Iho great Irish leader was himself im pressed by the enthusiasm of tho people, who pressed forward at every opportunity to touch his hand, at the same time utter ing an earnest "God bless you." ' Notwith standing the opposition expressed when the proposal was tirst made, not a word is heard to-day in Edinburgh disapproving of the presentation of the freedom of the city to the Irish leader. In view of Mr. Par nell's unfinished evidence before the Par neli commission it is expected that he will carefully refrain from making a political speech while in Edinburgh. Turkish Integrity to I Jo Maintained Copy right 1M9. by the New York Associated Press. J Bkklin, July 20. The long-pending nego tiations with the Porto, aiming at tho ad hesion of Turkey to the triple alliance, have linallv resulted in an entente, under which the breibund guarantees to main tain the iqteirrity of Turkish territory in accordance with the treaty of Berlin. The question concerning Crete is reserved. Prince Bismarck promises to influence Greeco not to interfere, provided further autonomy is conceded' the Cretans. It is stipulated that Turkish troops shall co-op-crate with Austria, Servia and Bulgaria in tho event of a war with Russia. The Sul tan received Count Kadowitz, the German embassador, on Wednesday, and arranged for tho reception of Emperor William, whose visit to Constantinople depended upon the Porte's conclusion of an entente. ' The negotiations were accelerated by the gravity of the situation in Servia. A Cabinet council held in Vienna, on Thurs day, debated whether the time had come for military intervention by Austria. Tho War Minister reported tho arming of the Servian reserves en masse, and tho distri bution of 250,000 rifles and abundant muni tions furnished by Kussia and Franco, they debiting the Servian treasury under easy conditions of defcred payments. Russian officers, he said, were engaged in inspect ing fortresses, barracks and depots in Servia. The Ministeradvocated immediate action. Everything was ready to march two army corps into Servia. The council declined to wait until Count Kalnoky influenced tho reappearance of King Milan in Belgrade. Tho partisans of King Milan are eager for a civil war to crush the Kussians. If it occurs. King Mi lan will invoke Austrian assistance, and thus give Kalnoky ground to interfere. the Kreuz Zeitung, referring to tne ar rangement with tho Porte for Turkish adhesion to the triple alliance, says: "The Sultan mnst above all be itilly. convinced that tho league will not violate the integ rity of Turkey, but recognize her as a state entirely independent within her own borderp. The Pesther Lloyd doubts the value of Turkey's adherence, but predicts that when tho decisive hour strikes, tho Porte, finding thequestion of its very existence involved, will co-operate with the powers desiriug to preserve Turkey. The Virginia Compromise. Special to tho Indianapolis Journal. "Washington. July 20. Colonel Dudley, one of the members of tho executive com mittee of the Republican national commit tee, in conversation with your correspond ent this afternoon, said: "I consider tho settlement of the dispute between the Ma hone and anti-Mahono factions in Virginia Republican politics as ono of the most im portant works which has been done in many years. It relieves the Virginia situation of one of the very worst of its features, and promises tobe followed by a more harmon ious understanding than has existed in the Old Dominion since the Republican party got ft real foothold there." "Do you think. Colonel inquired your correspondent, "tbat the chances for. Re publican success are now goodf" "1 most assuredly do. I consider that now, for tho first time, Virginia Republic ans have an excellent prospect of success, and that the differences of opinion which have heretofore injured the chances of Re publican success in that State have been wiped out." Colonel Dudley's idea in this respect is ; heartily seconded, not only by General Ma 'hone, but by tho other Republican leaders in the Old Dominion. General Brady, who was to-day appointed one of the internal revenue collectors for the State, was enj .thusiastic in his remaks concerning tho Re pnblican prospects there. General Mahono said with a smile. "The hatchet has been buried so deep that its handle is sticking out in China, and the Republican party of Virginia to-day is in a position to win." The work is indeed a most stupendous one, and is by far the most important polit ical movement which has been made for many years. Virginia has more Republic ans than Democrats within her borders to day, but the trouble has been for several years that the factions have succeeded in lighting one another to such an extent that success was impossible. By the compro mise which was erlected the other day by means of Quay, Dudley and others. Re publican prospects aro enhanced, and Dem ocrats from the Old Dominion do not hesi tate to say that their 'chances are blacker than they have been before since the organ ization of the Readjuster party, which was the birthday of the new Republican party in Virginia. Express Company Sued for 850,000 Damages. Chicago, July 20. A somewhat peculiar damage suit was instituted in the Circnit Court to-day. The plaintiff is Herman B. Chapman, and tho defendants are the United States Express Company, Thomas C. Piatt. George R. Blanchard, C. K. Cros by, Daniel P. Eells and C. S. llryce, as in dividuals and as directors of the express company, and Joseph Shephard, Georgo A. DcLong, Alfred M. Jones and Frederick Marsh. The suit is for trespass, and the damages are laid at 650,000. In 1ST8 Chapman was an employe of tho express corapaify at La Salle, 111., aud was charged with tho delivery of a $14,000 express package which nover reached its destination. Chapman claimed that he was assaulted and robbed of the Eackage, but the company insisted that o had stolen it. Years of litigation fol lowed. Chapman was acquitted on the chargo of theft, but subsequently con victed of perjury, and sent to the peniten tiary for seven years. Meanwhile the com pany began a civil suit against the prison er, and in 18S0 obtained a verdict in the United States Court for the 14,000 and costs. A special writ of capias ad satis faciendum was sued out. Armed with this the marshal arrested Chapman on his release from Joliet in 1884, and he was brought to Chicago and lodged in the debtors' department of the jail. The express company determined to make an example of Chapman, and paid his board weekly in jail for three years. They would doubtless nave kept him incarcerated for life, but in 18S7 the Legislature of Illinois passed a law providing that persons held in custody on capias ad satisfaciendum should not be held longer than six months after turning overall their property not exempt to tne creditor. This law went into effect July 1, 1S67, and that very day Chapman was released. In the meantime. Chapman's attorney had appealed to the tho United States Supremo Court, and yes terday that body handed down a decision setting aside tho judgment of the lower court, upon which tho capias had been is sued. Chapman naturally claims that the three years spent in the county jail were years of false imprisonment, and expects to recover damages to the extent of $50,000. The suit creates a decided sensation in le gal circles. A Fireman Heroism-Rewarded. No. 3 engine-house, on Virginia avenue, was the scene last night of a pleasant sur prise, which had been prepared by tho tire meil and citizens, for At Kight. Ho res cued two boys from drowning on June rt, when Julius Merssen, jr., lost his life m White river, near May wood, and his friends did not wish to have his heroism go unre warded. They had a gold medal made, with the inscription: "Al Kight. Presented for the heroic act of saving two boys from drowning." Over fifty persons were among tho donors, and last night was fixed upon as the time for the presen tation. Kight had been playing checkers with the boys at the engine-uouse early in the evening, and at 9 o'clock ho was sur rounded by a score or more, who had sauntered in from time to time. Jasper Phinue3 of D. P. Erwin fc Co., in a very fitting speech, infoimed Mr. Kight that his friends had thought his noble act worthy of some notice other than verbal praise, and that tho medal was otfered, not ibr its in trinsic value, but. as a token of their es teem. Mr. Knight, in reply, said that he re garded what he had dono not as heroism, but as duty; but as long as life would last he would never forget the friendship that had prompted the gift. Monslgnor Corcoran' Funeral Special to tho Indlanai-oll Journal. Philadelphia. July 20. The funeral of the late Monslgnor Corcoran took place to day. t The services over the remains were held in tho Cathedral, and were the most solemn in the ritual of the Catholic Church. The sacred editico was packed at an early hour. Sisters of the various religious or ders occupied tho front pews. The services began shortly after 0 o'clock. A proces sion of priests and acolytes, headed by Bishop O'Hara, of Scranton. filed from the sacristy into the sanctuary and took np positions. Follow ing Bishop O'Hara were Itfohopt Me (j'overu, ofHarriaburg, mid Xm-thmp, of North Carolina, and Ilia-hup Quiuey, of Charleston. Immediately upon tho priests and acolytes takiif: their seats the scred office of .the dead was chanted, and at the conclusion a solemn hieh mass was begun. Its celebrant was Archbishop liyan, and tho assistant priest was tho Very Rev. Nicholas Cantwell. At its conclusion Arch bishop Rvan and his attendants withdrew. Bishop Oiara then ascended the pulpit and delivered a brief sermon, reviewing the life and services of the dead prelate. When Bishop O'Hara had concluded. Cardinal Gibbons entered the sanctuary wearing the red cap and cape. He was at tended by several priests and acolytes. As cending the archiepiscopal throne, he di vested himself of his cap and cape, reveal ing tho tightly-ntting red skull-cap. Upon being invested with suitable vestments the Cardidal approached the foot of the casket, while a cross-bearer stood at the head. Behind the Cardinal stood the assistant priests. Tho Cardinal roverently knelt, and with bowed head and clasped hands spent a few minutes in prayer. Upon aris ing he pronounced absolution of the body, and withdrew. Then the priests of the diocese aud neighboring dioceses passed around tho catafalque. After allhad viewed the remains the casket was closed, and re moved to the vault beneath the altar. . The Recent Frie-Flgle. New York, Jnly 20. The Evening News, in an extra edition, gives to the public this: A letter received from a well-known news paper man puts a new aspect on the result of the battle between Sullivan and Kil rain. The writer says: "From informa tion I have received and from investiga tions I have made, I am confident that Kilrain was 'dosed prior to his battle with John L. Sullivan, and later I will have the names of tho parties who concocted the plot, The 'business' was done at Richmond on Sunday, on the evo of tho light. Kilrain was given Indian hemp, mixed with jelly, and the effects of the drug did their work steadily with the assistance of the torrid sun. One of the parties who put up the ring with Denny A. Butler has the secret, and it is more than probable he will expose the plot" A News reporter called on Frank Steven son in regard to the above. Stevenson said: "Kilrain informed me after the light that he had a strango feeling. Whether he was drugged or not I do not know." Johnston, of the Police Gazette, said: "Flynn, who put up the ring, said to me: Richard K. Fox would give $.1,000 if he know what I learned at Richbnrg.' Flynn knew of some plot, but ho refused to dis close it, though he promised to do so somo time." Flynn was at Richburg the night before the fight, and Johnston says Flynn hunted him up to make the above remark. instead or "seeing tne town," to-night, John L. Sullivan remained in his room at tho Vandcrbilt Hotel. Billy Muldoon was summoned from Long Branch to accompa ny bullivan to Boston, but tho trip was postponed until Monday. An eveninir paper states that Charlev Mitchell and Pony Moore sailed for Liver pool, on the Etruria, this morning. Just before tho steamer sailed Mitchell said: "I am glad to get out of this blasted country, and.you can bet I'll never return." Needs of the White House Washington, July 20. The Star this afternoon prints' an interview with Mrs. Harrison which Quotes her as eaviug that tho insufficiency of room m the White House has become a matter of very serious inconvenience. Mrs. Harrison savs that although the household of the President is not the largest ever domiciled in the official home of tne chief magistrate, tne encroach ments of official requirements of late years upon the apartments used for family pur poses has reached a point whero relief has oecome absolutely necessary, r-ven tne li brary has been take up for office business, and the Cabinet-room now serves the double purpose of a public ante-room for fcenatorsandothersadinitted without cards, as well as the place for the meeting of the President and his advisers. In speak ing of this subject, Mrs. Harrison contin ued: "Wo are here for four years. I do not look beyond that, as many things may occur in that time, but I am very anxious to see the family of the President provided for properly, and while I am here I hope to bo able to get the present building put into good condition. Very few people under stand to what straits the President's family has beep put at times for lack of accommo dations. . Really, there are only live sleep ing apartments, and there is no feeling of privacy." Mrs. Harrison says that tho idea of nnvk- : i. : A iL. i i: A f : ' jug mi eieiisiou 10 iuo riccuuu jisdmuu on the west side would not involve any loss on account of removing the present con servatories. Tho extension would enable the President's family to have a private home where the President's wife might eeo ner irionas privately. The President's Vacation. Special to the Indianapolis JouraaL Washington', July 20. Tho President and Mrs. Harrison went to Deer Park this afternoon, where thev will remain for about two weeks. The President will then return to W ashington.andafterspend ing a few days here will join Secretary Blaine at Bar Harbor, remaining there per haps a fortnight. Mrs. Harrison has not yet determined whether she will accom pany tho President on his Northern trip. When the President returns from Bar Harbor to Washington, the latter part of August, no will prepare lor another visit to Deer Park, intending to remain there dur ing the month of September. This is tho President's vacation programme as he had it manned out in his mind to-dav. and it is probable that it will be carried out, al though the length of the President's stay at eacn place may be cnanged through per sonal desire or the demands of public busi ness. Secretary Hal ford accompanied the Presi dent to Deer Park this afternoon. Somo appointments may bo determined upon and the announcements given out at Deer Park, and such matters as have to be recorded at tho executive mansion will be brought here and attended to by Secretary llalford. Secretary Windom did not go to Deer Park to-day, but will probably get away next .Monday or Tuesday lor a two weeks' vaca tion there. President and Mrs. Harrison arrived at Deer Park a little after midnight, and wont direct from tho station to their cottage. The Socialist Congresses, Special to tTie Inillanawlis Journal. ' Paris, July 20. Both congresses of the Socialists are in full blast. At the session of the Marxist Congress to-day Herr BebeL the German delegate, warned those present that 6pies in the pay of the German govern ment haunted the cafes and other resorts where the German delegates were wont to gather. At this Ilerr Liebknecht suggested that the Ger man delegates take every precaution to prevent the mandates given them bv tho societies they represent from falling into tne nanas ot tncir enemies, and requested that all delegates hand nn their mandates that they might be destroyed to prevent the authorities at their home from hunt ing down the victims of their rage and malice. This request was quito generally heeded, and many papers were handed up to be destroyed. Tne police authorities of Pans have granted pt mission to the Marxists to go to tho cemeterv of Pere la Chaise to-morrow en masse to decorate the craves of the Communists buried there. At the meeting to-day of the other sec tion of the Socialist party, the Possibilists. whoso convention is Known as the Interna tional Labor Congress, Mr. Hyudman, the English delegate, urged the union of the Socialists with the trades-unions in all countries. Tho congress passed a resolu- tion stating that, in its judgment, tho dele gates from each nation were the best judges of the wisdom of their own political and social tactics. The Municipal Council of Paris, last evening, gave a grand ban quet to the delegates of both tho Socialist congresses. The Flood In the Kanawha. Pakkkkshuro. W. Va.. July 20.

Supplemental to this she filed, through her at torneys, in the Chancery Court, this morninjr, her answer ana cross-bill to the bill tiled by Colonel King. The bill is a very sensational one. and contains wholesale denials of all of Colonel King's allegations, and severe strictures upon him.

Flemoii's counsel aked for this concession on the j?round that they had been unable to see any of the Supreme Court jucticcs to bring the matter before them. This case promises to become a question of national Interest, inasmuch as Fleiuon's friends claim that the murder in which he is said to be Impli cated was a political affair, which occurred in the latter part of the Cleveland -Blaine cam palcn, and phould the accused bo taken to Edgo tield county, South Carolina (the scene of the trouDie), Tor trial, he could not secure justice.

The Prlze-IUng in the Olden Time. New York Sun. An examination of the) classics, with spe cial reference to tho modern prize-ring, shows that the recent pessimistic philoso phizing of the Potterite school about Messrs. Kilrain and Sullivan, was as op posed to facta as the Rinhop's recent incur sion into old-time politics. Virgil, as he is translated, thus describes in the .rEneid the ring that once happened to be occupied by an old hero named Entelius and a younger boxer, Dares: Both on the tiptoe stand at full extent. Their arms aloft, their bodies inly bent; Their heads from aiming Mows tuey bear afar, ith clashing gauntlets then provoke the war. The clashing gauntlet mentioned here is the ccstus, that barbaric boxing-glove of lead, leather and iron which no modern sparrer would touch.

After that age, everyone iiudsout how much he or she requires, though, as a general rule, at least six to eight hours are necessary. Eight hours' sleep will prevent more nervous derange ments in women than any medicine can cure. During growth there must be ample sleep if the brain is to develop to its fullest extent, and the more nervous, excitable, or precocious a child is, the longer sleep should it get if its intellectual prnjrreaa is not to come to a pr.'-i...tn:' v itm! till, cr its life cut short at au tally a;c.
