cort. Mr. William O'Brien was arrested at
Glengaritf and taken to Cork. "Warrants
have been issued for the arrest of Messrs.
Sheedy and Condon, members of thellouso
of Commons, Mr. Patrick O'Brien and Rev.
David Humphreys, of Tipperary.
The charges "on which Mr. Dillon was
arrested art? conspiracy and inciting the
tenants on Smith Harry's estate not to pay
their rents. When Mr. Dillon -was arrested
be was visiting at the house of an uncle.
Ho was at once hurried, under strong guard
and with the utmost 6tcrecy, to the railway
station, where a special car was in waiting.
As soon as he entered this the train was
started for Dublin. Only a brief stop was
made in this city, when the prisoner was
carried ou to Tipperarv, the tenants of
which town he is charged with having in
cited to by his speeches to refuse payment
of rent to their landlord. Mr! Smith Barry.
The arrest of William O'Brien wa made at
the GltngarifF Hotel. Mrs. O'Brien was
present at the time. The charges against
Mr. O'Brien are similar to those on
which Mr. Dillon was arrested.
These charges are based on speeches
made by him At Limerick andTipperary, in
which, it is alleged, he advised his auditors
not to pay rent. From GlengarifF. which is
at the head of Bantry bay and not far from
Cork, Mr. O'Brien was immediately carried
to that city. In addition to those already
mentioned, it is ascertained thac a warrant
has teen issued for a Mr. Dalton, who has
been active in the work of the Land Lea cue.
Here in Dublin the police aro keeping a
strict watch of the headquarters of the
Land League. Persons entering or leaving
are subjected to close scrutiny. Dispatches
from Tipperary report that the organizers
of the local branch of the leagne there are
under close police surveillance, and
are being constantly , shadowed. This
special activity of the police leads to the
belief that the authorities are contemplat
ing further -arrests. It is considered, al
together probable that warrants are al
ready out against many leaders in the Land
League of secondary rank and importance,
who have made themselves obnoxious by
the active part they have taken in recent
anti-rent campaigns. No one will be sur
prised, therefore, to hear at any moment
that other men have been taken into cus
tody. This sudden action of the govern
ment has fallen like a bolt from a clar
sky. The Irish Nationalists-had no bus-
Iiicion of tjie impending blow, and aro at a
oss to know what it poitends. Mingled
surprise and indignation are the predomi
nant feelings in Dublin to-day. Dispatches
from various parts of Ireland indicate that
the Nationalists are everywhere greatly
excited at the arrests. The arrests were so
utterly unexpected that the surprise with
which they were first heard soon gave way
to a feeling of suspense as to what the
government would do next.
In an interview after his arrest Mr.
Dillon said that he was mystified as to the
object of the government, unless it were to
prevent Mr. O'Brien and himself and others
lrom proceeding on their intended mission
to America on Oct. 1. He was certain,
however, that the American friends of Ire
land would not in any event
withhold needed support from the
unfortunate tenants on the Tipperary -and
other ' estates. The " unjust and
arbitrary action of, the ' government
would injure the opponents of the tenant's
rights more than a dozen public meetings
would have done. He called attention to
the coincidence of Father Conway de
nouncing him and his colleagues from the
altar in the Tipperary Church at the very
moment when the warrants of arrest were
being drawn,- and appealed to the people
to say whether this could have been merely
accidental or whether It did not indicate
collusion between certain members of the
Iiriesthood and the Tory enemies of Ireland.
Ie had satisfied himself that all reports of
dissension in the ranks of the Nationalists
were unfounded. He had traced these ma
licious stories to a drnnken renegade mem
ber of Parliament. The Nationalists were
stronger to-day than ever before, and would
only be more firmly united on account of
the arrests.
Mr. O'Brien and his wife arrived at Tip
perary, at 9 o'clock, this evening. The
public lamps had been left unlighted in or
der to discourage any gathering of the peo
ple, but many citizens met the party at the
station and cheered them as they , passed
through the streets. Canon Cahill and
other friends visited them at the court
house, where they were taken.
In the Tipperary court formal evidence of
the arrest of O'Brien was given before Mag
istrate Irwin, and Mr. Ronan. who conduct
ed the prosecution, asked that O'Brien be
remanded until Thursday. Counsel for
O'Brien cross-examined Inspector Rafter,
with a view of showing that although
O'Brien had committed the alleged
illegal acts in June no stops
had been taken for. his arrest
nntil it was heard that ho was going to
America. Inspector RatFer denied that the
mission to America had anything whatever
to do with the case. Mr. O'Brien here re
marked that the whole world knew the
government's motive for making tho
arrests. Mr. O'Brien was admitted to
bail. Cannon Cahill being his surety.
Ou the application of Mr. Konan. war
rants were issued for the arrest of
other members of the National League.
There was a slight disturbance outside the
court-house at Tipperary. A large crowd
of people, accompanied by a drum and fife
band, were waiting at the station here for
Mr. Dillon, who drove in the Mayor's car
riage to his own residence, where he ad
dressed the people from the steps. He said
the more frequently arrests were made
the more resolute Irishmen become in the
.national cause.
Dillon was also bailed, giving 1,000 as
security. He was remanded until Thurs
day. The warrant mentions offenses oc
curring between March and September. A
constable served a summons on Mr. Sheehy
at his residence, but did not arrest him.
TV 111 Tend to Increase Contributions.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. IS. Presidont Fitz
gerald, of tho Irish National League, re
ports that tho delegation of Irish members
who intend to visit this country will be
composejd of William O'Brien, John Dillon,
yT. P. Gill and Secretary Timothy Harring
ton. Mr. Fitzgerald received the following
cablegram to-day, dated Dublin, Sept. IS:
Dillon and O'Brien arrested this niornintr, evi
dently to prevent a visit to America and to ex
haust our lesources. Hakiusgtox.
Mr. Fitzgerald says such tactics will only
serve to exasperate the Irish in America
and make their contributions ten-fold larger
than they otherwise might be.
And Ten l'ertbns and Several Horses Torn to
Pieces by Lions and Other Animals.
London, Sept. 18. Advices from Kimber
ly. South Africa, tell of an awful occur
rence there at midnight on the 1st of Juno
last. Some person, evidently one bearing ill
feeling toward the proprietor of the Tillis
menagerie, opened the doors of the cages
confining the wild animals and set them all
free. The most terrible scenes followed.
Four attendants sleeping on the premises
were mangled be3ond recognition, being
actually torn limb from limb. Tho entiro
population within a radius of a mile was
aroused by the roaring of the lions, the
trumpeting of the elephants, and tho groans
and shrieks of the other wild beasts. Four
big male lions, named Pasha, Abdul, Caliph
and Mustapha, sprang from their cages and
made for the stables, where Pasha leaped
upon the back of Murat, the great jumping
stallion, ana buried his teeth in the ani
mal's neck. The screams of the hor&e
aroused the attendants, a Scotchman
named pAterson and three Kaffir boys, who,
armed with stable forks, rushed to tho re
lief of Murat. They endeavored to beat
Pasha back, but were attacked from behind
by three other lions and one chetah,
thrown to the ground and dragged oil.
Their bodies were mangled and torn open,
their bones smashed into bits and the heads
'of all, except one of the Kaffirs, crushed
into a pulp. This one katlir lived long
enough to tell the story, but both arms and
legs were torn off, and his body was cov
ered with lacerations.
Having tasted blood, the lions and leop
ards regained all their natural ferocity and
sprang at every living thing that came in
their way. Four performing Hungarian
horses were killed almost instantly, among
which was the equine beauty Black Bess,
and a number of ponies wero devoured. An
enormous elephnnt known as Blood burst
through the heavy iron gate in his fright
and rushed into Curry street, followed by
nearly every animal in tho menagerie. A
cabman named Nelson was sitting on bis
carriage before the building, and sprang
for a post that supported an awning around
(Hover's Athletic bar, while1 his horses
L4lted madly down tho Dutoitslrau road,
closely pursued bv two lions and four
wolves. Tho rest of the wild animals scat
tered in everv direction.
A little child of James Grinley happening
to be in a room opening on a garden was
pounced upon by a chetah and dragged in
to the open air. where its agonized mother
saw it torn to pieces and devoured before
help could reach it. Other harrowing in
cidents are renorted. among them the kill
ing of live women. When the mails left,
four lions, two lionesses, two tigers, three
bears, two wolves, ono hyena, two chetahs,
one elephant, one camel and seventeen
baboone were still at large. The police had
been organized into hunting parties, and
the people wero keeping in-doors.
Portuguese Engaged In Kidnaping Natives
Germans Assisting in the Traffic.
London, Sept. 18. A dispatch from Cape
Town says: Great excitement has been
caused here by the arrival of a Portuguese
steamer loaded with kidnaped natives from
Mozambique, en route to the west eoast.
The tribunal here decided that it war.un
ablo to interfere with the steamer, but
fourteen natives, who, after a desperate at
tempt, succeeded in escaping, from the
steamer, were declared free, and the tri
bunal refused to assist in recapturing them.
The Governor referred tho matter to the
government at London. In the meantime
the steamer proceeded.
Tho News urges Lord Salisbury to send a
vigorous remonstrance to Capetown with
reference to the Portuguese slave steamer,
and says he needs to refurbish -England's

denial in regard to the allegod slave-dealing
proclamation, and thinks that Schmidt's
inquiry is very necessary.
A Zanzibar dispatch corrects tho state
ment that Zanzibar Arabs have gone to
Bagaraoyo, and says that the dealers at
Bagamoyo aro local men. Emin Pasha

tured a lot of guns, ivory and cattle from
Sultan Sike there, and then proceeded to
Lieutenant Schmidt to-night cabled from
Zanzibar an official denial that a proclama

Col. DakeBaillo Opens an Artery and Bleeds to
Death Ilia Boy's Love for Him.
CniCAGO, Sept. 13. Col. Duke Bailie,
f orinerly of the regular army, but more re
cently an author, committed suicide to
night in his room on one of the upper floors of
No. 236 State street. He opened an artery in
his leg and permitted himself to bleed
to death. The ex-soldier's twelve-year-old
boy was asleep in the same
room with him, and awakened to find the
father in the agony of death. Colonel Bai
lie has been a widower four years, lie was
mustered out of the army directly after the
war, and had been in receipt of a small pen
sion ever since. He was horribly disfigured
from wounds received in fighting his coun
try's battles. A bayonet thrust had car
ried away his nose, a saber cut left a
long, ugly scar across his cheek, and
one foot had been taken off by a shell.
Ragged scars on his breast indicated that
his face was toward the enemy when the
wounds were inflicted. Despite the old
veteran's appearance, his boy was passion
ately fond of him and was in the habit of
throwing his arms around his neck and be
tween kisses calling him his "dear old cut
tip papa." The pair have been eking out a
bare existence with the Colonel's little
pension and what he was able to earn from
his writings.

Dion Boucicault, the Weil-Known Dramatist,
Author of Many Famous Plays.
New York, Sept. 18. Dion Boucicault,
the playwright and actor, died, after a
lingering illness, at 9:15 o'clock this evening.
Mr. Boucicault had caught a cold, which
enveloped into pneumonia on Tuesday aft
ernoon. He rapidly became worse. Ho
was conscious to the time of his death. The
only persons with him when he died were
his wife and nurse.
Dion Boucicault was born in Dublin, Ire
land. Dec. 26. 1822. He was the son of a
French merchant, and was educated at tho
University of London for a civil engineer,
but chose the drama. In March, l&l, he
produced the comedy "London Assurance,"
which met with great and immediate suc
cess. In 1853 he married Agnes Robertson,
visited the United States on a lecturing
tour, and returning to London in
1800. brought out his famous "Colleen
Bawn." . In 1SC1 he produced The
Octoroon," illustrating the evils of Ameri
can slavery. After that he brought out in
ranid succession over one hundred plays,
best known among which was "Rip Van
Winkle," mado famous byjetlersou. His
plots were seldom original, but his delinea
tion of character and handling of dramatic
situations and incidents wero his own. In
1874 he returned to the United States, and
has since, for the most part, resided in New
York. He wns an actor of no mean abilitv,
and frequently played the title role
in his own plays. Ho also had
a disastrous ambition to bo a manager.
During' his first residence in the United
States he established a theater at Wash

Southern Republicans Conderqn the United
States Senate for IU Recent Course.
Memphis Eagle. ,
From the Chicago convention, tho Na
tional Republican League convention and
every other local stump and township sinco
Harrison's nomination, tho party has
pledged to pass a bill protecting every
American citizen mugwump, Republican
and Democrat equally and alike in tho
casting and counting of bis lawful ballot.
Now, under the Bourbon bull-whip, a few
of our "courteous" Senators, fearing the
wrath of their free-trade opponents, (who
are now grinning in their eleevcs with
ghonlish glee at their successful tactics,
and who in their hearts despise their Be
publican antagonists for their coward
ice) have abjectly swallowed their
pledges and endangered, by their coward
ice, the Republican supremacy of the next
House. Tho earnest Republicans of tho
country have nothing but contempt for
those so-called leaders who will thus crawl
and cringe upon their knees at tho feet of
Bourbon bulldozers.
We Southern Republicans, who have
for 60 many weary years borne the brunt of
the unequal battlo tor political fair play in
these Southern States, are now 6adry dis
heartened, and if our good friends in tho
House, who have so nobly done their duty,
should, at the convening of the next Con
gress, see only Democrats from theso
States instead of an occasional Republican,
they can easily account for it
by tho astonishing political ob
liquity of professed friends in tbo
United States Senate. Wo sincerely
hope that our fears may not bo realized,
bnt we are frank to say that the prospects
for Republican success aro not near so tlat
teringasthey would bavo been had the
policy inaugurated in the House not been
slaughtered by a few of our Senatorial
Republicans may expect to confront the
same policy that distinguished the Demo
cratic party in 18S8. Bulldozing, ballot
box etufiing. false counting, and cverr
other possiblo fraud may be expected. All
tbat is left for Republicans is to do their
whole duty, thoroughly organize the party,
see that net a single member of tho party
fails to qualify as a votr, and let every
Republican voter go to the polls on Nov. 4
and cant his vote for the nominees of tho
Republican party, and trust to Democratio
jnstico, (a broken reed) and what protec
tion can be given them by the united'
States deputy marshals in tho way of a fair,
