Bllfour Prefers That Some One Else Lead English Conservatives . to. Dvert. , The Entire Oblnet onVonoed of Disaster at the Next Gen. oral Election, Gladstone's Predtlletion forTalking Ataln Necessitates Msplaastione-Insinuates That He Knows something. [Corright. 181, New York AsooCated Prese. Lomol, Oct. 16.-The conservatives have been prematurely jubilant over having es caped the leadership of Goobhea. Mem bre of the Carlton olub to-day reviewed with a shook of dieappointment a telegram from Balfour denying that he had been offered the leadership. Douglas, conserva tive whip, denies that the premier has yet definitely offered the vacant post to any member of the eabinet. He woald not say whether it had been offered to any one out side of the cabinet-meaning Marquis Hartington. The truth of the positron, as known to the inner official oirole, is that Balfour wants Hartington to become leader, with a reversion of the post to him self. Behind Balfour's ostensible reasons i, the fact that he does not care to have hisi early peribd of leadership signalized by the coming deoiaive defeat of the party. 'No one having even casual contact with a government minister can escape the conviction that forebodings of a grand disaster at the next general election fill their minds. The indecision of Salis bury is damaging the position of the gov ernment. Comments of of icial organs of the French and other European govern ments on Gladstone's announcing at New castle his intention to move an order for the evacuation of Egypt awoke the liberal leaders to the prospective dangers of the declaration, and semi-ofroial explanations have appearsed, nutting a gloss on Glad stone's words greatly at variance with the frst general interpretation. Gladstone, it is said, did not mean that as soon as he at talis power he would discontinue the occu pation; he would simply look for some way for bringing to a close the present pro visional regime. James Brice, as the next liberal under foreign secretary, has declared the same in a speech. All this shows that Gladstone hal again been floundering into a blunder 'on, foing .policy which his colleagues find Sto correct. Pierce Mahoney, I. P. for North Meath.. speaking at a meeting of the followers of P.arntll at Dublin to-dey was reeted as the new leader. He railed at Dillon and O'Brien. Mahoney is a mee figurehead. He is a poor epeakerand hiU'so known gifts as a tactioian. The section has but three men of proved parliamentary ability-Red mond, Leary and John O'COonnor. The first named has become the actual leader. Exasperation of the factions increases daily. Hesly is especially marked out for detestation. His utterance recorded during the Kilkenny contest about Parnell, "I will drive him into the grave or a lunatic asylum," is recalled and made much of. The feeling of the Methodist Washington conferenoo toward union-of the ohuroes has not the entire sympathy of Methodists here. Toward the approaches of the non conformist council for closer relations, the Wesleyan council, in session this week,gave absolute refusal. Mr. James Dredge and Sir Henry Wood, of the royal commission to represent Great Britain at the World's fair, have prepared a draft of their report, eulogizing the pros pects and arrangements of the fair, and urging wide participation by the people of Great Britain. Exports froni Bradford to the United States for September show a decrease of £828,546 compared with the same month of 1890. The new American tariff is prov ing ruinous to the trade of Bradford and the markets of other countries no not come to the rescue. O'BRIEN 18 BITTER. He Threatens Disclosures Unfavorable to Parnell's Chief Followers. LONDON, Oct. 16.-William O'Brien, mem ber of parliament, to-day made 'public a statement or manifesto in reply to recent Parnellite defiances. He writes: "I hays waited since the funeral hoping that the late Parnell's leading supporters, knowing my relations with Parnell at Boulogne, would have the manliness to disassociate themselves from the diabolical charges cir culated broadcast by their special organ that Dillon and myself hounded their leader to death." He continues by saying that as the insinuations as to his treatment of Parnell have not been rebuked or repudiated by the men who knew them to be false, he felt absolved from all obligations of silence in regard to the conference at Boulogne. The unalter able basis of all communications with Par nell at Boulogne was first and last, O'Brien said, 'his retirement from leadership. O'Brien adds: "Parnell's four most influ ential lieutenants professed themselves as eager as ourselves to secure Parnell's with draral. These same men are now silent, while their organ charoes me with plotting to get rid of Parnell. They themselves pressed me to consent to Parnell's first proposition, which was that he ehould retire in favor of myself, and at the close of the negotiations they repeated their convic tions, that it would have solved the difi. culty had I consented." The letter from Parnell to O'Brien is then given, in which the former expressed his gratitude for kindness and gentleness of spirit shown him by O'Brien. O'Brien concludes: "Thus closed the Boulogne communication, with the full recognition that we parted as honorable opponents." A tallroad Southward. SAN ArNToNo, Texas, Oct. 16.-Frank Brittain, in from the Mexioan border, says the last of a bonus of $150,000 for the Pan American railway it raised and the party of Boston capitalists accepting it have put sunrveyors on the route with the promise of beginning construction from Peotoria, Tex., southward within twenty days. larringto In iReply. LoenotN, Oct. 16.-Timothy Harrington, replying to O'Brien'smanifesto, denies that the Bonlogne negotions were based on the absolute retirement of Parnell and says the sooner O'Brien publishes the text of the negotiations the more delighted Parnell's followers will be. The Government Defeated. Synley, N. S. W., Oct. 18.--The goverb ment yesterday opposed the motion to the effect that the government bill regulating the mining laws should be returned to the committee in order that the eight-hour labor clause, which it contained, might be eliminated. The motion 9arried bya vote of forty.·ne to folry-one. It is enderstiod that 16 oonsquene of the defeat of the government the cabinet will resign. note tram the iops. Rotm. Otc. 16.--The pope, in a note to the powers, says the recent Pantheon dis orders were of extremae importance and in. sate that it is impossible for both the Ital anovernment and the papacy to remain froeig.n /lsnhe. Lady McDonald, rellet of the late Cana dian premier, has received the royal patent oreating her a baroness. Gosohen, speaking at Cambrldge Thure day, intimated that Balfour will be govern ment leader in the commons. It is roposted, that a marriage has been arranged between the ozarewitch and the Duchess Elesa, of Wurtemburg. A lirge and enthusiastic meeting at Belle River, Ont., adopted resolutions favoring politioal union with the United States. A dynamite bomb was found on another railroad track at Reichenberg, in Bohemia. in the vicinity of the one recently placed which jeopardized the emperor's life. The vessels which' have arrived at Eng lish ports seeking shelter from the stolm are in a pitiable condition. The storm is how over. The London newspapers, commenting on Balfour'e appointment as first lord of the treasury, the position held by the late Will iam Henry Smith, say the choice is a good one. The charge d'affaires of the Brazilian embassy at Washington received official cablegrams from Rio Janeiro deolaring all alarming rumors concerning Brazil with out foundation and the . inventions of speculators. The British steamer Parrameta, which arrived at Plymouth. England, reports that the crank shaft of her freezing engine broke while she was in the gulf of Aden, causing its stoppage for twenty hours. The hot weather caused the carcasses of 20,000 Australian sheep in the freezing compart ments to spoil. MISPLACED CONFIDENCE. Reposed in President Hoey by the Adams Express Company. NEW Your, Oct. 16.-The application of Henry Sanford, president of the Adams Express comany, for an attachment against the property of John Hoey, deposed presi dent of that company, in a suit to recover a half million dollars was granted to-day. The summons attached to the papers an nounces to Hoey that if he defaults in appearing to answer the suit judgment will be taken against him for $712,960, with interest and costs. Lovejoy, in an affidavit, tells how at vari ous times Hose, either individually or with other persons, acquired all the interests of the New York and Boston Dispateh, the Kingely Express company and Union Ex press company, at an aggregate expendi ture of $E158,000, which was the full value of the stoek. It was sold to the Adams Ex press company for $850,000. the surplus amount being appropriated by Hoey to his own use and that of others in the fraud on theAdams Express company,and in violation of his duties as an officer and trustee. Lovejoy further alleges that when Treasurer Babcock died in 1885 he was indebted to the company. $10,000,. and to. discharge' this indebtedness his administrators turned that mrn over to. loey. Lovejoy chargie. stn. By' reasonf of all tihse facts, figuring interest, etc., it is alleged that there is now due the Adams Express company from de fendant $95I,905.

PnILADELPHIA, Oct. 16.-Before Judge Biddle to-day' hearing was had'on habeas corpus asies in the interest of Julius Moskowitz, Isidore Brenner and Morris Gillis, Russian Jews. charged with breach of the peace, distributing anarchistio circn tars, making incendiary speeches, and in citing to riot. Officers testified as to their utterances. At a meeting they advised their hearers not to believe in God, not to fear the police, condemned the president of the United States and said he ought to be killed. Judge Biddle declared that he had no doubt that the preaching of their doo trines was seditious.

A Tale From the East of People Known Here. BosxTo, Mass., Oct. 16.-The Juch Opera company ended its engagement at Provi dence Saturday night. As there was not money enough in the treasury to pay all their singers and to pay their fares to Buf falo, where they were to sing next they re mained at Providence over Sunday. Just before the announced time for departure messengers conveyed the information to members of the company that their de parture would be delayed until the arrival of Charles Locke from New York. Inquiry developed the fact that the funds in the possession of the treasurer did not appear to be sufficient to settle the local in debtedness, At 10 o'clock Looks arrived and held a consultation with Miss Juch. Then he endeavored to telephone to M. Stelnert & Son, at Boston, and not succeed ing in obtaining an answer tried to reach the same firm at New Haven. His efforts, however, were unsuecessful. George Gould, one of the tenors, smil ingly said that there was no novelty in the situation, as the same company was stranded three or four times last season. He said they always managed to pull out of It. The majority of the company looked lightly upon the affair. Those who com plained of not receiving their salaries were not as light-hearted.

A LEITTEH FROM BLAIE, Why the 'Seoretary Opposed the McKinley Bill as Prepared by the Major.. It Opened no Market for a Bushel of Wheat or a Barrel of Flour. No Pretense That It Would B*enet Amer leaa Workmeg or Was Needed to Protect MaILnuettrers. New Yonr, Oct. 16.-An Ohio editor hav ing written Mr. Blaine that demooratio pa peas were parading him as an opponent of tz McKinley bill, he replies as follows: Aoou~rt$, Me., Oct. 14, 1892.-John Hop lay, Esq., Editor Journal, Buoyras, Ohio. My Dear Sir:-You inform me that a demo oratio paper in your town and many demo cratic papers throughonu Ohio keep the fol lpwing paragraph standing in type: "But there is not a setion or a line in the Mc Kinley bill thas will open a market for an other bushel of wheat or another barrel of pork.-Jas. G. Blaine to Senator Frye, July 11, 1890." This sentence is garbled and. taken from its proper connection, it creates a wrong impression. What I did say is the following: "I do not doubt that in many respects the tariff bill pending in the senate is a just measure, and that most of its pro visions are in accordance with the wise policy of protection, but there is not a section or a line in the entire bill that will open a market for another bushel of wheat or another pound of pork." The letter in which this paragraph occurred was writen to Senator Frye, July 11, 1890, and the McKinley bill did not become a law until Oct. 1, nearly three months there after. In my letter to Senator Frye I ob jected to the bill because it did not con tain a reciprocity clause which would pro vide a market for wheat, pork, for other products of the farm, and for various fab rice. Before the bill was finally passed a reciprocity clause was inserted and a large addition was made to the free list. It will, therefore, be seen from what I said in my letter that the objection which I made to the MeKinley bill was entirely removed be forei he bill became law.. Let me further say that the reciprooity OlaRe ue gaven a s IlmsaaranouI auar barrels of lour and many pounds of pork. Brazi some months since entered into a treaty by which many American articles ate admitted free. Flour is made free and pork is admitted at a nominal duty. Cuba and Prto Rido have reduced the duty on flour from $5.80 a barrel to $1, which gives us thp market, besides putting nearl~ a hundrt d articles of American production on tbe free list. Ban Domingo has made a reoiprp.g.ttrAatry witkIlur and pork onthib free e.-1. , bbaside large number' of artiOles. Othertreaties for retiprooity are in progress. Germany, without negotiting a formal treaty, has removed the prohibi tion on pork, and our government, in con sideration thereof, has left her sugar on the free list. Thiu opens to us an entirely new market, and $15,000,000 to $20,000,000 of American porkt will be consumed per an num, where not a pound had been taken for ten years. The rboiprooity provision is proving very successful, especially in farm products, and more particularly in the case of the two articles mentioned in the paragraph quoted-flour and pork. I am not, ttfre fore, an opponent of the McKinley bill, as the democratic papers in Ohio are con stantly alleging. On the contrary. I have cordially supported it ever since it was per fected by the insertion of the reciprocity clause. Very respectfully yours, JAMES G. BLAINE. CONVIVIAL JERRY. He Denounces Rich Men, but Drinks Champagne at Their Expense. CLEVELAND, Oct. 16.-Congressman Jerry Simpson came here last Saturday and talked to about 300 people in the public square. He scored the, millionaires and monopolists unmercifully and said ugly things about everybody who had accumu lated money. When he had concluded his speech Con gressman Tom Johnson, a rich democrat, carried Nimpson of to the cafe, where they sat down with L. A. Russell and .8 ). Dodge, both democratic lawyers and wealthy men, to. champagne supper. When the people's party committee heard of the wine supper they were angry. They went to the restaurant and upbraided him then and there for his conduct. One of the committeemen told him that if he had no respect for himsetf he ought, at least, to have respect for his party. They refused to pay him for his speech or pay his expenses. Simpson cot mad, said he did not want their money and would do the same thing again if he took a notion to do it. To-day all the peoples' party workers are denouncing Simpson in unmeasured terms. Porter Makes a Guess. BoavoN, Mass., Oct. 16.-Census Superin tendent Porter to.night talked about the census before the American Statististical as socination. He stated that, when completed, the eleventh census will not make less than twenty-five quarto volumes of 1,000 pages each. The result of direct inquiry as to debt on farms and homes is not yet completed, but is so far advanced that Porterwas abletostate that the average farm and home debt, estimated from partial re turns from counties throughout the union is $1.283 for farms and $925 for homes. If these averages hold good for the United States there is an existing debt in force of $2, 500 000,000 on the farms and homes co onpied by owners and incumbered. It has csut nearlc a million dollars thus far to col lect these statistics of mortgage indebted ness and will take another half million to finish up. In With the Steal.

There Miller refused to accept the officer's aid any further, and broke away, Dooney let him go and went to police headquarters to report the affair.

The special officer remained at headquar ters while Policemen Vanasse and Callahan went on a search for the wounded man. If wounded. his injuries cannot be great, as he walked of alone after the policem an let him go.
