Manufacture and keep constantly on hand a Lawn
Dressing which is second to none in the world;
every article of which It is composed Is food for

the lawns, and likewise kills moss, which is often so
troublesome in old lawns. After applying stable
manures to lawn«, also Superphosphates and many
other lawn dressings now In use, it is a long time
before tbe children can be allowed to play on them
on account of the offensive odor. Not so with the
composition which we offer to the public, for there
is nothing of which it is composed to prevent ehil

aged 30, was burned to death at 10 o’clock last
night in his home in East Machias. A lamp
exploded in his hand while ! he was going up
stairs to retire, covering Ms person with oil.
In an iustant his clothing was a mass of
flames. His wife and two children were dir
rectly behind him and barely escaped through
a back door before the entire building was in
flames. The house and contents were unin
sured. Loss unknown.

WASHINGTON.
The Tariff Commission.
Washington, May 19.—No decision as to the
composition of the tariff commission was made
at the Cabinet meeting today.
A Southern Unpleasantness.
Representative Blackburn and Senator Wil
liams have had a belligerent correspondence in
reference to the question as to which should
have the credit for securing an appropriation
for a public building at Frankfort, Ky. The
affair grew out of a letter of Williams’ to a man
named Hoard, a bitter enemy of Mr. Black
burn, claiming for himself all the credit and
denying any to Mr.,Blackburn. A correspond
ence between Williams and Blackburn arose
out of this which ended in Bladkburn writing
to the Senator that he "deliberately lied” and
Williams turning the correspondence over to
Senator Aampton. The matter has created
considerable comment and a duel was antici
pated but it is now believed the affair will be
settled by a fipersonal interview of the parties
concerned. _

CYCLONE IN ARKANSAS.
Much Property Destroyed But no Lives
Lost.
Little Rock, May 19.—Although occurring
last week the news of a cyclone in the river
country in the extreme southwestern corner of
the State bordering on Texas and the Indian
nation and fifty miles from the telegraph, did
not arrive till last night. The tornado came
from the west and swept everything in its
path. All the buildings on the farms of W.
C. Slaughter, Nathan Ward, John B. Cesten
gane, Michael Harris, Zeke Fuller and Martin
Teel, together with fences and trees, were
blown down. Teel’s wagon was blown into a
tree top and three hundred acres of heavy
timber land were levelled. Ring Herring’s
house was unroofed and timber blown down.
A portion of Frank Palmer’s house was carried
away and his laud literally covered with fallen
timber. Goorge Ayer’s building was demolish
ed, nothing .being left, and every member of
the family were injured, two probably fatally.
No lives were lost so far as ascertained,
though the storm was evidently fiercer in
Sevier county than anywhere in the State.
THE STAR ROUTES.
True Bills Fouud Against Rerdell and
Others.

Rerdell, Brady and J. W. Dorsey and S. W.
Dorsey, charged with frauds in connection
with the Star route service and has placed
them in the hands of the district attorney so
he may draw up new indictments upon them.
At the adjournment of the court this afternoon
the District Attorney and Mr. Ker had a con
sultation with Judge Wylie, after which the
latter announced he would be in court at 11
to-morrow. This is, it is assumed, for the pur
pose of receiving tho report of the grand jury.
Indictments now pending and on which trial
has been ordered will be discussed. Con
tinuances have been had with an object of
procuring indictments from the present grand
jury, it being pretty generally admitted that
others were hopelessly defective.

AMONG THE ICE.
Thrilling Experiences of Allan
Line Steamers.
ARRIVAL OF THE PRUSSIAN AT
ST. JOHNS, N. F.
St. John, N. F May 19.—The British
schooner Chebucto has arrived from St. Paul’s
island. She reports speaking the steamship
Peruvian Saturday last completely disabled,
with propeilor gone. The steamship is firmly
embedded in a heavy mass of floe ice and quite
helpless. All the passengers and ship’s com
pany are well and the hull of the steamer has
sustained no serious damage. Her position is
about six miles easward of St. Paul's island.
The Chebucto saw the Peruvian again Wed
nesday morning and her position had not ma
terially altered. The chief danger that now
menaces her is a westerly gale which would
drive her town on the perilous coast of Cano
Race. Her Majesty’s warship Grillin goes to
her rescue, but is feared that site will prove of
little service as she dares not come in contact
witJi the heavy floe ice that encompasses the
Peruvian.
The steiimer Prussian of the Allan line from
Liverpool via QueenRtown, arrived at St.
Johns this morning She narrowly escaped se
rious disaster at 1.30 o’clock Wednesday after
noon in latitude 45, longitude 47. During a
dense fog she struck an iceberg, carrying away
her figure head, a portion of the head gear and
badly shattering the bowsprit. The shock was
severely felt but there was no excitement, the
passengers and crew acting with remarkable
coolneBs. The ship is not leaky. She was
steaming slow at the time, otherwise the con
sequence must have been disastrous. Two
children belonging to steerage passengers died
of measles duriog the voyage. Another case
is reported hut is likely to recover. The Prus
sian leaves this evening for Halifax.
XLVTIth Congress-lst Session.
SENATE.
Washington, May 19.
Mr. Anthony reported favorably from the
printing committee a joint resolution authoriz
i ing the printing and sale at cost price of the
Congressional directory and the current num
bers of the Congressional Record. Passed.
The Senate considered bills reported for pub
lic bnildings.
Mr. Rollins, chairman of the committee on
public buildings, said these bills were more
numerous than heretofore, yet the aggregate
of oppropriations under them at the present
session was less than at previous sessions.
Several House bills for public buildings were
passed.
Bills were passed appropriating $200,000 for
a public building at Syracuse, and $75,000 for
one at Poughkeepsie.
A controversy ensued between the New
York Senators over a proposed building at
Rochester, Mr. Lapham insisting upon the in
sertion in the Honso bill advocated by his col
league Miller, ox a proviso the effect of
which was to secure the [retention of the Unit
ed States courts at Canandian.
The bill was passed.
Bills for the erection of several public build
ings and to incorporate the Garfield Memoral
Hospital were also passed.
The five per cent, land bill was taken up.
Various amendments were rejected, as also
one offered by Mr. Hoar.
An amendment admitting Calfornia to the
benefits of the bill and requiring money paid
that state to bo held as a school fund was
adopted.
Mr. Morgan moved to provide that none of
the money to which any state shall become en
titled under the act shall be retained by the
United States on account of any direct tax
remaining due or unpaid from any state to the
United States under the Act of August, 1871.
Adopted and the bill then passed—yeas 23,
nays 17.
After placing the Geneva award Bill on the
order as unfinished business the Senate ad
journed until Monday.
HOUSE.
The House resumed consideration of the
bank charter 'bill, the pending question being
an amendment offered by Mr. Crapo as an in
dependent section as follows:
“That no national banking association now
organized, or hereafter organized, deeiring to
withdraw its circulating notes, upon a deposit
of lawful money with the Treasurer of the
United States, as provided in section 4 of the
act of June 20, 1874, entitled ‘An act fixing
the amount of United States notes, providing
for a redistribution of the national bank cur
rency and for other purposes,’ shall be re
quired to give ninety days’ notice to the
Secretary of the Treasury of its intention to
deposit lawful money and withdraw its cir
culating notes, provided that not more than
$5,000,000 of lawful money shall be deposited
during any calendar month for this purpose,
and provided further that the provisions of
this section shall not apply to bonds called for
redemption by the Secretary of the Treasury;
but when bonds are called for redemption the
banks holding such called bonds shall surren
der them within thirty days after the maturity
of their call.”
Mr. Jones of Arkansas moved to amend the
amendment by inserting three million dollars
in lien of five millions dollars. Rejected, yeas
92, nays 194.
Mr. Cannon of Illinois moved to amend Mr.
Crapo’s amendment by striking out the words
“but when bonds are called for redemption
banks holding such called bonds shall surren
der them within 30 days after maturity of their
call.” Rejected.
Mr. Bayne of Pennsylvania moved to amend
the amendment by adding the following pro
viso, “That said banks may withhold said
bonds in whole or in part for one year on noti
fying the Secretary of the Treasury of their in
tention so to do, in which event said bonds
shall not be redeemable until the expiration of
the year, nor shall they bear interest. Re
jected, 42 to 169.
Mr. Crapo’s amendment was adopted with
out division.
Mr. Crapo offered as an additional section
an amendment providing that on deposit of
bonds the association making the same shall
beentitled to receive from toe comptroller of
currency circulating notes equal in amount to
ED per cent of the current market value not
exceeding par of United States bonds so trans
ferred and delivered. It farther provides that
at no time shall the total amount of such notes
issued exceed 90 per cent of the amount actual
ly paid in of capital stock, and repeals sections
5171 and 5176 of the revised statutes.
Mr, Holman of Indiana moved to strike out
the clause repealing section 5176. Rejected,
yeas 86. naySjllO.
Mr. Crapo’s {amendment was then adopted,
yeas 109, nays 92.
Several other amendments were offered and
rejected and the previous question was then
ordered.
Mr. Morrison offered an amendment provi
ding that Congress may at any time amend,
alter or repeal this act and acts of which it is
amendatory. Adopted. The bill then passed
as amended—yeas 125, nays 67.
A joint resolution was passed appropriating
sixteen million dollars to supply deficiency in
the appropriation for army pensions.

state rested we should agrtt to submit the case
to the jury without putting a witness for
the defence.”
Deputy Sheriff Peck was called by Mr. Doo
little, who said in answer to an objection by
the defence that be wanted to show that this
girl volnntarily made » confession and that it
could be properly introduced in the case. Ho
added, "I want to show all that was done with
reference to this girl so that Your Honor can
datermine whether it was a voluntary act to
show that she acted upon the advice of her
friends Riley and the girl Sadie Monroo whom
she kuew longer than she did anvone in Con
necticut. I want to show all the iuflueuce
brought to bear on her and I want to know
what connection she had with Riley." Mr.
Peck testified that Riley told Blanche it was
best for her to tell all that she knew and 10
cut loose from the Malleys. The interview
lasted half to three-quarters of an hour and
Riley advised her to discharge her counsel and
have nothing more to do with him.
There was no argument upon the quostion of
admitting the confefsion of Blanche Douglass
before the coroner’s jury, and the Jadge de
clined to allow its admission. There was no
doubt, he said, the girl was induced to tell the
story from influence brought to hear upon her.
In this confession Blanche stated the two Hal
ley’s with herself and Jennie Cramer passed
the night in the same house, and that dnriug
the night James took Jennie by force from the
bed she was occupying with her into auother
room where he made her remain with him
during the night.
Shortly before 3 o’clock the court adjourned
until Tuesday. _
The Orangemen’s Letter.
Boston, May 19.—The card printed to-day
by John Durgin of Arlington, in which he
claims that the letter read at the Irish indigna
tion meeting in Fanouil Hall recently, tender
ing the frrternal greetings fof Orangemen was
without authority, has brought out a reply
from Mr. H. D. Miller, who presented tho let
ter at the meeting. Mr. Miller says: “Durgin
speaks as the head of the Oranage jordor of tho
State of Massachusetts. There is no such or
der. ,The Orange order is an order of Great
Britain and Ireland and must hold a charter
from the Grand Lodge in Ireland. No person
can bo an American citizen of the United
States and an Orangemen at the same time. I
spok and still speak for Orangemen residing in
the United States. Let Durgin produce his
lodge’s charter, signed by the Grand Master
of Ireland, without which it is invalid, and I
and my Grand Master and secretary will meet
him and answer his alleged repudiation.

IRELAND’S TROUBLE.
Alleged Confessions of One of the
Assassins.
THE REPRESSION BILL PASSED ITS
SECOND READING.
Michael Davitt on the Situation.
London, May 19.—In an interview in Paris
yesterday Michael Davitt said he did not ques
tion the honesty of Parnell. He (Davitt)
couid give no information as te the future ac
tion of the I,and League. A meeting of the
leaders of the Land League is to be held short
ly, at which the whole situation wi 1 be dis
cussed and the future movements of the
League determined upon. He said the new
repressive legislation of England will prove a
measure for the better encouragement of secret
societies. It is really aimed at the Land
League movement, and is intended to prevent
free political discussion, political meetings and
political organizations. This would leave the
government face to face with the power it pre
tends to be anxious to grapple with, namely,
the societies. In my opinion no power that
can be wielded by the English government
will be able to crush the secret organizations,
which will, after the suppression of the Land
League movement, be regarded by the victims
of Irish landlordism as the only power that
can defend or avenge them. I have hope, nev
ertheless, that the outrages will not continue,
but I am afraid to say what may happen when
the Irish people are confronted by this horrible
additional coercion policy. Davitt says he does
v not intend to comply with the conditions of
his ticket of leave, and said so to the governor
of Portland prison when the order for his re
lease arrived. He says: “I have received a
number of telegrams asking me to visit the
United States at once, bus owing to the double
crisis on this side I feel it my duty to remain
with my old colleagues.”
Alleged Confession of One of the Mur
derers.
Dublin, May 19.—The Dublin Journal pub
lishes an eight-column story, anonymously sent
and bearing a London postmark, professing to
bo the confession of one of the assassins. It
intimates that the crime was conceived as an
answer to the appointment of Cavendish, by
the Irish assassination society having branches
throughout the kingdom. Over twenty per
sons are said to be implicated in the crime, all
of whom have now escaped to England in vari
ous disguises. The writer says they attended
the funerals of the victims.
Debate on the Repression Bill.
London, May 19.—The debate on the gov
ernment’s repression bill was resumed in the
Commons to-day. Dillon emphatically de
nounced;the bill.
Mr. Gladstone denied that the bill was the
outcome of English resentment. It was not
founded on the Phoenix Park disaster, but was
contemplated long before ita occurance. He
desired that it pass unaltered in its main
lines.
Mr. Parnell also spoke. His remarks were
most moderate.
The bill passed its second reading by a vote
of 383 against 13.
General Notes.
Dublin, May 19.- The report is general
throughout this city that the murderers have
escaped in the garb of priests, and are now on
their way to America.
The city police are now armed with swords.
They have not carried such weapons since the
Fenian disturbances. A Sheffield firm sent
knives to Duilin to order just before the PhtB
nix Park murders.
As the steamship Wisconsin, whioh arrived
at New York on the 17th, sailed from Queens
town at 8 o’clock on Sunday morning, May 7,
all the passengers, including the man Turner,
who was taken into custody at New York, re
ported at the company’s office the previous
evening. Hence it is impossible for the assas
sins to have been on board.
London, Maj 19.—Thomas O’Connor, an
Irish-Ainerican, was arrested in Chatsworth
Park at midnight last night on a charge of be
ing there unlawfully.
In consequence of anonymous Fenian threats
the guards at the government establishments
at Plymouth have been doubled.
Mr. O’Shea, member of Parliament for
county Clare, writes to the London papers af
firming that despite the denial of Forster they
had been in frequent communication, and that
it was Forster who suggested the best plan for
O’Shea to quietly visit Kilmainham jail.
The examination of General Curtis on
chargo of collecting political assessments in the
New York custom house is progressing.
Commissioner McBride, of Long Island City
has absconded with $G,000 of the City’s
money.
Land riots have broken out in southwestern
Russia. Two houses pf nobles have been sack
ed by peasantry.
A long deferred report of the Arkansas Sen
ate commiitee on the State treasurer will show
that according to the books the treasurer’s de
ficits are about $114,000 and the auditor’s about
$20,000.
At Waxaliatcbic, Texas, Thursday night,
fire destroyed 25 buildings. Loss estimated at
$100,000.
Dr. H. W. Kendall, who was shot while pre‘
paring to rob a grave at Onondaga, Hill, N. Y*
Thursday night died last night.
A fire in Leadville, Col., yesterday destroy
ed property valued at $200,000. Two bodies
have been taken from the ruins.

Foreign Notes.
A peir at Queenborough, England, and a
brigantine alongside were burned yesterday.
The Cumming Divorce Suit.
In the Cumming divorce suit in the Supreme
Court of Massachusetts, the case of the libel
lant rested on Thursday with the deposition of
Charles H. Rogers. In opening for the libelee
Gen. Butler said he proposed to enter a cross
libel. It was his intention to show that the
character of Mrs. Louise W. Rogers Cumming
the libellant was not above reproach. The evi
dence to be produced would show conclusively
that her declaration in the libel that she had
ever remained true to her marriage vows was
not warranted by the facts. He should prove
that Mrs. Cumming had broken her faith in
Paris and had been discovered by Mr. Cum
ming in her hotel chamber with a man who
had travelled about the continent with the
party, ostensibly as an interpreter. Mrs. Cum
ming, it was claimed, had confessed her un
faithfulness andjhad;been condonodjby her hus
band. The general proposition of the case of
the libelee was that unless the libellant had
been faithful herself, she could not legally pe
tition for divorce on account of her husband’s
lapse from virtue. Various authorities were
cited to support this positiod.
Mr. Sohier urged that the cases referred to
by Geneial Butler were not to the point, and
read from the statutes, with the object of
showing that, a condoned offence did not pre
vent crimination of the other party for a simi
lar misdemeanor.
Chief Justice Morton stated that if forced to
rule on the point he should decide that, if Mr.
Cumming condoned the unfaithfulness of his
wife, it was virtually a full forgiveness and
pardon of that offence, if such should be estab
lished by testimony. The matter could not af
terward be brought up as a ground of recrimi
nation. The point being crucial, it was of no
object to take further testimony until it was
decided. At the suggestion of the court and
with the consent of counsel, the full bench,
which sits in November, will decide whether
condonation by the libellee of the offence of
the libellant would destroy! the libellee’s plea
and render his defence nugatory. If the decis
ion if affirmative Mrs. Cumming’s divorce will
doubtless be grantod; otherwise the case will
be oontinued.
St. Luke’s Cathedral.
To-morrow having been appointed by au
thority as a day of special intercession for
missions will be duly observed as such in the
Cathedral. A mis ionary service will be held
in the evening at half past seven o’clock.
Particular interest will be attached to the
services owing to the presence of the venerable
Archdeacon Kirkby who will preach both
morning and evening, and of whom the New
York Times speaks as follows:
In St. Luke's Church, Hudson street, yes
terday, the venerable Arohdeacon Kirkby,who
for over 28 years has labored in the British
American mission field, discussed, “The Great
Mission Work of the Age.’’ Small in stature,
he is erect, and his movements are quick and
nervous. His lace bears few wrinkles; his
hair has not yet grown gray. He has Been
much of the world, more particularly of that
region included in the far northern dominions
of Great Britain in this hemisphere. To him
belongs the honor of having first preached the
Gospel within the arctic circle. During his
many years of service in the mission field, the
greater portion of which was in the Mackenzie
River district, he witnessed rapid and remark
able advances in the Gospel cause amoug the
people to whose good his life and labors were
devoted. He told something yesterday of his
work and of the results which had come from
it, speaking for nearly an hour most interest
ingly. Of the Esquimau and other Indians he
had many anecdotes illustrative of their sim
ple mindedness, their thirst for knowledge,
their loyalty to religious convictions, and their
general integrity, when treated as men and
honorably. The pre icher inveighed strongly
against the popular notion that the best Indiau
is a dead Indian. Dwelling upon the spread
of Christianity among tho natives he adverted
to the fact that the missions of the English
church among them have done such good
work and developed so rapidly that at present
the work in progress requires the oversight of
four regularly settled Bishops and the active
labors of over 70 missionaries, nearly a half of
the latter being native preachers. The work
dono among the Esquimaux, he insisted, could
be done as well and with success equally mark
ed among the Indians of our own West, and
he pleaded earnestly for the awakening of a
warmer interest in missions for that field.
RAILROAD NOTES.
St. John & Maine.
Representatives of the all-rail line betweon
St. John and Boston held a meeting at St.
John, Wednesday. It was understood by rep
resentations of the representative of the St.
John and Maine railroad, who has recently re
turned from Euglaud, where he has recently
visited and conferred with the English bond
holders of that rond, that the proposed railroad
bridge across the Si. John river at St. John is
likely to be realized in tne near future, and it
is also understood that the bridge will probably
be provided for by the St. John & Maine peo
ple, backed by the Dominion government.
Such a conclusion would be natural in the
matter, and the bridge ought to originate in
this way. The benefits, should the bridge bo
built, would be large for the line and for that
section of the country especially, and lively in
terest is taken in the matter there. The mem
bers of the all rail line east of Portland are the
Maine Central, European and North Ameri
can and St. John & Maine lines, and the Eas
tern railroad is the Boston outlet.
Minor Notes.
The refrigerator oars run on the Maine Cen
tral during the summer months, were replaced
on the freight trains of Tuesday and Thursday
this week, for the season between. Bangor and
Boston.
The Ogdnsburg & Lake Champlain Co.
have just received ten Tiffany refrigerator
cars which will be used on special butter trains
this summer. A neat folder aud map'w'itb
general information relating to the Adiron
dack Mountains aud the leading summer re
sorts, has also recently been issued by the Og
densburg railroad.
The differences between the St. Johnsbury
& Lake Champlain Railroad Co. and the Cen
tral Vermont and Vermont & Canada roads,
relative to the alleged unfairness of rates
charged for running over the first named cor
Eoration’s line from Rouse’s Point to Swanton,
ave been satisfactorily adjusted. The matter
was referred to a board consisting of Thomas
Russell and E. W. Kinsley, Railroad Commis
sioners of Mass., and H. M. Witter of Wor
cester, and the St. Johnsbury’aod Lake Cham
plain has accepted the decision of a majority
of the referees, Messrs. Russell and Kinsley,
which is that the “arbitrary” be reduced from
ninety cents per ton, as fixed by a former
award, to thirty cents. This reduction will be
of mutual advantage to the Ogdensburg and
Lake Champlain railroad, in connection with
its through traffic both via lake and rail.
The Grand Trunk Railway is putting the
new Westinghouse automatic brake on all its
trains. The whole train is placed under the
control of the engineer by this brake,- if a car
is accidentally detached from the train, while
in motion, the brake immediately applies it
self. The Lewiston trains have had the brakes
applied. _
The Late Hon. Edward O’Brien.
The State of Maine has lost one of its most
distinguished sons, and the United States its
largest and most successful ship ownor, in the
death of Edward O’Brien of Thomaston. The
history of this remarkable man, whose last
days were spent in adding to the fame of
American commerce and in deeds of unosten
tatious but far-reaching philanthropy, is a
bright example to the youth of our country.
Mr. O’Brien deserves to be remembered in
Virginia. He was one of those enterprising
New Englanders who,more than a quarter of a
century ago, appreciated her resources and
assisted in developing them. And, while true
to his home in the days which tried men’s
souls, his friendships formed in the Old Do
minion before the war secured us his sympa
thy in our sorrows. He was a great believer
in the future of Norfolk, and the O’Brien fleet,
floating the stars and stripes amid the foreign
flags which have crowded our wharves during
the cotton season,was always a sight to inspir e
pride of coqjptry and gladden the hearts of pa
triotic Americans. Associated so intimately
with onr commerce, it seemed most appropri
ate that one of his grand fleet should now be
in our harbor to half-mast her flag to tell our
people of the great loss the world of commerce
had sustained—Norfolk, Va., Review.
Good Carriages.
At a recent convention of carriage men in
a Western State it was noticed that of the car
riages and coupes in attendance nearly 8 of
them bore the plates of being made in New
Haven, Conn. This “City of Elms,” which
Mr. Hubbard has appropriately called the
"Pearl of New England,” contains 800 manu
facturing establishments in active operation,
and for this and all other business purposes is
most fortunately situated. Within two hours
of New York, 20 trains a day each way, 5
hours of Philadelphia and Boston, there is no
spot which is so easy of access. Among its
manufacturers there is none more deser- iag of
mention than that of Henry Killam tc Co.,
who make a specialty of the finest class of
family carriages. They use the highest grade
of material and labor, and a great saving can
be made by ordering direct from this old estab
lished house. Their productions consist en
tirely of Landaus, Landaulettes, Coaches,
Coupes and Broughams of the latest stylei and
are unsurpassed in beauty and elegance in all
their appointments by anything in the whole
world. The firm guarantee their work fully
equal to anything in the market; their name
plate is familiar in Central Park and our men
of wealth cannot go amiss in buying their car
riages in this thriving New England city.—

Cape Elizabeth.
