THE; INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER, 20, 1890.
so far extremely doubtful of tbo wisdom or
expediency of the government's course.
Mr. O'Brien, in au interview this morn
ins, said be could not imagine what in
fatuation had driven the government to
xnako the arrests. It . is easy to see. bo
thought, -what they are di iving at. They
are making a supreme effort to crush out
the organization of the tenants lor con
certed action. This they expect to accom
plish, he thought, by simultaneous clear
ances on all estates where the "Plan of
Campaign" has been adopted. The evicted
tenants they calculate on thus havinghelp
less at their feet.
"But can such a policy be successful,"
Mr. O'Brien was asked.
No," he replied. "It is in my opinion a
piece of inconceivable folly. But it seems
clear to me that this is what the govern
ment propones to attempt.7'
"It is held by many," the correspondent
said, "that the main purpose of Mr. Balfour
in making the arrests at this time is to pre
vent Mr. Dillon and you from making your
contemplated trip to America."
"That does not neeni a probable theory to
me," replied Mr. O'Brien. "But if it is the
true one a more absurd calculation was
never made, even by the present Chief Sec
retary for Ireland. Instead of preventing,
our appeal to America, he has made it for
us in the most striking and impressive way.
The story of these arrests will ring through
out America like a trumpet note, compared
with which our voices would have been
feeble and ineffective. All Irish-Americans
knows that Tipperary is the key to
the fight for Ireland.. They will take care
to frustrate the dastardly calculations of
the government."
"What do you think, Mr. O'Brien." the
correspondent asked, "will be the ultimate
effect of the present course on the cause
you represent!"
"It will be altogether beneficial," Mr.
O'Brien replied without hesitation. "It
will close up the ranks of our followers, re
vive drooping courago and banish every
shadow ox dissension. The combination in
Tipperary is absolutely impregnable. It
cannot be shaken."
Two More Arrests.
Dublin, Sept. 19. John Cullinane and
Michael Dalton, members, of the National
League, have been arrested. Warrants
were issued against Dillon and O'Brien, but
only summonses against the others. Mr.
Paruell is making arrangements for an early
meeting of his followers in London. Mr.
T. P. O'Connor, M. P., and Mr. James O'Kel
ly, M. P., will probably take the berths on
the steamer Teutonic, which Mr. Dillon and
Mr. O'Brien had secured for their passage
to the United States.' T. D. Sullivan will
likely accompany them.
Mr. Dillon, who. came to Dublin last
night, was the center of an animated circle
to-day. No note of despondency . was de
tected in the utterances of the leaders of
the . Laud League. On the other hand,
there seemed to be fresh confidence and
new enthusiasm. Instead of regarding the
arrests as a calamity, the prevailing ten
dency was to rejoice at them as a blessing
in disguise. The action of Mr. Balfour the
Nationalists hold to have been an immense
tactical blunder for the government. They
are satisfied that it will result in signal
.advantages to the Irish cause.
CEXEKAL FOREIGN NEWS.

Enacted In Their llehalf.

Louis Michel Still Rebellions.
London, Sept 10. Louise Michel, a noted
Anarchist agitator, who is residing in a
quiet southern suburb of London, is in very
poor health and her friends are anxious
over her condition. Her prolonged imprison
ment seriously impaired her energies, and
she is glad of the opportunity to recuper
ate afforded by her present retirement. She
has no desire to return to France lor some
time to corns,' and is very emphatic in her
denunciation' of the French government,
which she says is less liberal than a mon
archy. In fact she declares that she would
throw her influence on the side of the
Monarchists if they should openly enter
the held against the Republicans. .

Strike Riots at Sydney.
Sydney, N. S. W, Sept. 19. In conse
quence of the absence of the regular dray
men, who are on strike, and the inability of
the employers to engage non-union men to
fill their places, the wool merchants and
squatters to-day drove their own wool drays
to the quay. A mob hooted them and tried
to prevent the unloading of the drays.
Stones were thrown at the drivers, and the

cleared the streets.

HON. JOHN C. SEW AT JiEW lORK.
He Talks with a Reporter on Current Topics
llis Visit Uome Not Political.
New York, Sept 10. Jno.C. New, Amer
ican Consul-general to London, arrived in
New York this morning on the steamer
City ot Berlin, and is stopping at the
Gilsey House. He said . ho came over
to look after his private affairs,
has sixty days7 leave of absence, and will
next week go direct from here to his Indi
anapolis home. As the President and
Mr. Blaine are in other places, he
said he would riot visit Washington
until they, returned. Mr, New wanted it
understood that his return had no political
significance, and he had not consulted with
any one about the next national campaign.
English merchants were greatly inter
ested, he said, in the McKinley bill, as they
are so conservative that a new idea startles
them. Mr. New is sanguine that after
the law is in force a month British busi
ness men will be satisfied with its
workings. He also expressed his belief
that England would before long increase
the tarilf on many of her ' duti
able articles. As a commercial
representative of America in Eng
land he declined to talk about
the arrest of Dillon and O'Brien. He had
not seen a copy of the federal election bill,
but said that every man should have an
uninterrupted right to vote, and, if not,
his rights should be enforced by law.
In Paris three weeks ago Mr. New met
Minister Whitelaw Keid, who explained to
him the retaliatory xneasuro against
.France's prohibition of American
pork. Mr. New said Minister
Keid's arguments are unanswerable.
Mr. New said Kobert T. Lincoln, American
Minister to England, will, in October, re
.turn to this country to see his family, now
hens. Mr. New was positive that Mr.
Lincoln's visit, like hs own, had no political
importance.
BONDS AND CASH MISSING. ,
$237,224 of the Assets of a Fire Insurance Com
pany Mysteriously Disappear. '
- New York, Sept. 19. Much surprise was
expressed in insurance circles to-day at a
report to the ellect that $237,224 in bonds
and cash, the assets of the Star Fire
Insurance Company, had disappeared
from a box in a safo deposit vault. The
statement, published in an evening paper,
purported to give the facts conceminglthe
missing money and the affairs of the Star
company. According to the sworn statement
of President Nicholas C. Miller, filed Jan. 1,
1390, the assets of tho company amounted to
the sum named, while the liabilities were
S2C6.275. The report, as published, said
that inquiring shareholders wero re
ferred to W. E. Hoxie, one of the
directors and an insurance-broker, as
President Miller had gone, it was said, to
Chicago and taken the key of the vault
with him. Six weeks ago Mr. Hoxie was
authorized, as stated, to go to Chicago to
get the key. He returned with
out it, and thereupon a resolution
passed declaring a dividend of 20
per cent, to the share-holders was
rescinded. It was further reported that
Mr. Hoxie subsequently opened the safe
deposit-box in tho presenco of Secre
tary C. S. Middlebrook, Mr. Miller's
son-in-law, and found in it, in
stead of $230,000, an empty envelope.
A reporter, who called at No. 68 Pine street
this afternoon, was told that Mr. Miller had
been in Chicago for some time and had not
returned, and that the entire assets of the
company were in Mr. Hoxie's charge. Mr.
Hoxie could not be found. After repeated
calls at his house on Greene avenue. Brook
lyn, it was learned that he would not be at
home till to-morrow.

Cleveland, O., Sept. 19. Henry Burris,
a wealthy Quaker farmer near Smithtield,
J e Hereon county, was swindled out of
$5,000 by two sharpers. They went to his
house and offered to buy his farm. They
left with him a satchel, tilled, as he sup
posed, with money about 818,000 the
sharpers said. A few days later they met
Burris at Smithfield and asked for a loan
of $5,000. Thinking the money in the
satchel was amplo security Burris made
the loan and the sharpers disappeared.
The satchel was filled with paper and pieces
of wood.

WILL KOT BE TAKEN LACK
The Strikers Who Left the Employ of tho
New York Central Left for Good.
Webb Says the Road Will Stand ly the New
Men Probability of a Strike in the Illi
nois Coal Fields Printers in Jail.
Albany, X. Y., Sept 19. II. Walter
"Webb, third vice-president of the New
York Central railroad, who has been west
as far as Buffalo inspecting the workings of
the road, arrived at Albany at 5:S0 r. m. to
day," on his palace car Grassmere, accom
panied by superintendent of Motive Power
Buchanan. An Associated Press reporter,
who was in the depot at the time of his ar
rival, asked Mr. Webb how 60on the strikers
would be reinstated. In answer to this and
several other questions. Mr. Webb said: "It
may as well be understood right here that,
from now on, none of tho strikers on the
Central road, between New York and Buf
lo inclusive, will be reinstated.. It is
better for the men, for their famil
ies, and for all concerned, to know
now that none of the men who are ont will
be taken back. The men left the employ
of the company six weeks ago to-night, and
they have had ample opportunity to apply
for work before this week. They well
understood the policy of the road from the
beginning and they have seen it success
fully established, f hey did not seek re
employment until the strike had been de
clared off, and since then they have nearly
all asked to be put to work. This would be
impossible, as wo have enough men now in
our employ to operate the road in
all its departments. During the
last few days we have weeded
out all the undesirable men who usually
slip into employment dnring a strike, and
we now have an experienced class of men.
Then, again, in justice to the old men who
have been loyal to the company and to the
new men who came to our assistance
when their services were welcome, we
could not reinstate any of the strikers,
especially by turning any of our new men
away. Even if any of the new men should
leave, their places will be tilled by new
men. as we have firmly determined not to
employ men who have been doing all in
their power during the last six weeks to
injuro the road."
Southern Illinois Miners.
Chicago, Sept. 19. The rumor that Pat
rick McBride, member of the executive
board of the United Mine-workers, was on
his way to Springfield yesterday from
Pennsylvania to stir up the miners in this
State and Indiana, caused much excite
ment among operators whose offices are in
Chicago. The Brazil block coal people ex
hibited a contract that was binding on
their Indiana workers until May 1, 1891,
and they claimed it could not bo their men
who were going to strike. Tho same was
true with the Wilmington and the Scott
companies. During the day, however, a
report was received from southern Illinois
saying that there can be but little doubt
that a strike will bo ordered in that region
around Springfield, Danville, Mount Ohvot
and Belleville. The prices paid mine
workers below Springfield are much less
than those received in Indiana and north
ern Illinois, This, it is said, has been due
as much to lack of organization on the part
of the workers as to any other cause, . and
the movement is with a view to bettering
the condition of the ten thousand miners
in that locality. The Consolidated Coal
Company alone has about eighty mines in
operation, and it is supposed that the men
will all walk out of these. It was not
thought the strike could extend further
north, perhaps, than the. region of Grape
creek and Danville.
The Spokane Falls Strike a Failnre.
Spokane Falls, Sept 19. The carpen
ters strike on the exposition building is a
failure. Bankers, merchants, professional
men and capitalists rallied at the btdlding
yesterday by the score. It was an inspiring
sight. Hon, A. McCannon, father of Spo
kane Falls, with his long white patriarchal
beard, clad in blue overalls and hammer in
hand, was one of the first to arrive at the
building. Nearly every banker in town re
sponded to the call, and when night came
the superintendent declared that more
work and better results had been accom
plished than upon any previous day. A
large number of strikers gathered upon the
grounds early in the morning, but the
cheering of the workmen as new recruits
kept arriving had a depressing ellect upon
them and they soon faded away. The en
thusiasm and spirit of the people is remark
able. The affair is the most exciting incident
in the history of the city, with the excep
tion of the great fire last year.
A general strike of all union carpenters
in this city was carried out to-day. This
was done in the hope of forcing tho public
to exert its pressure against the boycotted
mill company to induce it to yield to tho
demand of its employes. "Altogether 6o0
union men have gone out. including
two hundred at work on tho exposition
building. Work on that great structure
goes merrily forward. A larger force is
now on the building than before the strike.
The surrounding towns and cities are offer
ing to send non-union carpenters. Thei
strikers are eager to arbitrate, but are met
with the statement that there is nothing to
arbitrate. .
Non-Union t 'rioters Assaulted.
Monmouth, i'! , Sept 19. The union
printers on the Daily Journal, of this city,
struck last Tuesday. The force was about
evenly divided between union and non
union men. The foreman, who was a re
cent acquisition to the force, discharged a
non-union man to make room for one who
belonged to the union. The proprietor
would not allow this, whereupon the union
men quit work, forcing the non-union men
togoout also. Tuesday night the union
men received information that Linn, , one
of the non-union men, was going to work
the next day. They immediately visited
him and threatened to kill him unless he
left town immediately.. He was last seen
being escorted to the depot Jt is feared by
some that Linn has met with foul play.
Lebnecher, another non-union man. went
to work Wednesday. When he left the of
fice the union men, who were lying in wait,
assaulted him with clubs and brickbats,
aud would probably have seriously injured
him but for the intervention of some citi
zens. The affair caused much excitement,
and the alleged leaders of the strike have
been indicted by the grand prtry for con
spiracy and intimidation. Fivr. are now in
jail and quiet has been restore!.
. Illinois Central Trainmen.
Chicago, Sept. 19. The committee rep
resenting the trainmen employed on the
entire system of the Illinois Central rail
road waited on General managers Beck and
Sullivan to-day, in pursuance of an agree
ment made a few weeks ago, at which time
a number of grievances of tho men were
presented. At to-day's conference the re
sult was hardly of a nature to please the
committee, and it may require all of next
week before an adjustment of the ditler
ences can be arrived at Tho men demand
an all-around advance in the scaie of
wages now paid of about S3 per cent
Toledo to lie Headquarters for Conductors.
Toledo, 0. Sept 19. The International
Brotherhood of Kailroad Conductors to-day
practically decided two things: First, that
Toledo will bo selected for the headquarters
of the order, and, second, the re-election of
Grand Chief Conductor Geo. W. Howard
for next year. The salary of that office
was formally increased by 81.000. but on
Mr. Howard's protest it was fixed at the
same figure as before. $3,000. Considerable
time to-day was speut in the consideration
of secret work of the order. The conven
tion will remain in session several days yet.
Wages Increased Ly Vie Tariff
New Yokk, Sent. 19. The last shops have
just acceded to the demand of tho gold-
beators for increased waf.es, aud now 1,000
nf them throuirhont tlit ronntrv nre nt
work at an increase from $9.50 to $13.00 per
wek for workers by the week and from 4
to 0.25 for beatiua fifty pennyweight tor
piece-workers. Charles Brice, chairman
of tho gold and silver-beaters' national
tariff committee, ascribes the' success of
the strike to the McKinley bill, which pro
vides for an increase of duty on gold-leaf
of S313 percent.
THE FRIENDS CIIURCII.
TroceediDss of the Western Yearly Meeting;
in Session at PlainfielJ.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Plainfield, Ind., Sept. 19. The Western
Yearly Meeting of the Friends Church com
menced its annual session here yesterday.
A large committee appointed last year on
the revision of the Book of Discipline, met
at 9 o'clock a. m., and a regular me jtingof
the representation meeting, a body repre
senting the "yearly meeting during its re
cess, was held in tho west room at 10 o'clock.
The attendance was small, the members of
that body not having yet arrived. Ko
business of special importance was trans
acted. Some general routine matters were
attended to and an adjournment taken to a
later day.
At 2 o'clock p. m. the meeting for ministry
and oversisht, composed of the ministers,
elders and overseers of the yearly meeting
convened as usual. The attendance was
larger than usual. The deep reverential
silence which covered the assem
bly at its ODonincr was broken
by the earnest words of prayer
by Calvin W. Pritchard, of Western
Springs. 111., editor of the Christian Worker,
followed by Francis W. Thomas, of Dun-
reith, Ind., and Anthony Kimber, of rro vi
olence, ic 1. Mne key-note of the church's
need was touched by a few pertinent re
marks of John Henry Douglas, of Iowa.
David Hadley, the vearly meeting's snper-
,1 a. i? 1 r 1 a. 1
juicuucui ox evangelistic anu pastoral
work, called for a special season of confes
sion and nraver. manv kneeling with him.
Nathan II. Black, who has served the meet
ing as its clerk for many years, read the
opening minutes and called the names of
delegates, forty-one being present and
twenty-one absent. x
lhe credentials of the visitinir ministers
in attendance were read for Amos Bond and
F. W. Thomas, of the Indiana yearly meet
ing; Amy L. Trueblood, of Archer, Fla.;
Barcley Jones, of .New lork yearly meet
ing; John Henry DoUglas and Enos P.
fctubus, of the Iowa yearly meeting. Also
there were present Anthony Kim
ber and George M. Chase, of
Khode Island. without credentials.
A committee, with Samuel Trueblood as
chairman, was appointed to prepare a suit
able essay or minute, expressing tho spir
itual exercise of the meeting, to bo read and
adopted at a future sitting.
At 7 p. m. a devotional meeting was held
in the west room. Orlando Tomhuson led
tho song service, and vocal prayer was of-
ierea oy Mother .Laura S. Haviland, of Chi
cago, now in her eighty-first year. Enos P.
Stubbs read from Second Peter, first chap
ter, and commented briefly on tho reading.
A praise service was led by David Hadly,
in which prayer, eong and testimony pro
vailed. At the close E. C. Silcr suggested
the thought that possibly we fail in our
spiritual work for the want of detiniteness,
and urged that we make our pravera. testi
monies and service for Christ specific, driv
ing direct at that which we need or desire
to accomplish. He cited the practice, of
John Wesley, in his work for the salvation
of souls, in his great meetings, in his day of
having one mourners' bench for all who
were seeking pardon for sin, and another
for all Christians seeking sanctilication.
This morning an adjourned meeting for
ministers and elders was held in the west
room at 8 o'clock. The delegates, as di
rected at the last meeting, reported N. H.
Clark and Lydia Ann Perisboe for clerks
for the ensuing year. A number of dele
gates not present yesterday answered to
their names this morning. Credentials
were read for Dr. Elias Jessup. of Law
rence, Kan., and Richard A. Cox, his com-
anion, who were present. The queries ad
ressed to this body were read, and a sum
mary of tho answers from the quarterly
meeting, setting forth the-standidg of the
members, from which is gleaned the follow
ing statement: A commendable interest is
manifested in the work of the conversion
of sinners and in the building up of the be
lievers in the faith and hope of the gospel,
and, with but little exception, unity pre
vails among the brethren, and a religious
concern is apparent for the advancement
of the truth as it is in Christ and in the
support of the discipline of the chnrch.
Care is taken in family discipline and in
the right training of the children and
youth in a religious life and conversation,
and a belief expressed that all are sound in
tho doctrine of Christ. In the discussion of
these important subjects earnest and en
couraging remarks were made by
Barclay Jones, Amos Bond, Francis W.
Thomas, B. C. Hobbsand Laura S. Haviland
A devotional meeting was held at the same
hour in the tent. The service was led by
John Henry Douglass, opened by song and
prayer. The theme of the hour was "Pres
ent Acceptance." At the closo of the ser
mon way was made for testimony, . and
many gave pointed testimony to present
salvation.
The first regular business session of the
yearly meeting began at 10 o'clock, a large
attendance being present. "All Hail the

If Calvin S. Brice is a citizen of Ohio he
justly owes the State this money, and his
failure and refusal to pay it stamps him as
a man endeavoring to defraud the State of
its lawful revenue. If he is not a citizen of
Ohio, but of New York, then he does not
owe this money. But under these circum
stances he was unlawfully elected to the
United States Senate, and should never be
allowed to take his seat in that body.

That plank of the Republican platform fa

the hearty approval of every oue who
desires the best possible results from the
large annual expenditure of money for
their support. We have had sad experi

should be rendered impossible in the fut
ure by removing the control of these insti
tutions beyond the pale of partisan politics.
