The Action of the General Council Addi
tional Outrages Holding the Rioters In
The Scranton Eepublican of yesterday has the
following special telegram from Mauch Chunk:
The General Council of the W. B. A. has been
in session all day, and there was a greri deal of
discussion upon numerous topics, some of which
were to the point, while others were irrelevant,
and almost foreign to the vital questions now at
issue, and which are really the obstacles in the
way of resumption. Little has been accom
plished, and while the prospect is generally re
garded as hopeful, yet those who had anticipated
prompt,deeisive action on the part of the council
will be somewhat disappointed. It was at once
ascertained this morning, if not yesterday, that
there was a great diversity of opinion among
the members of the council on the subject of
arbitration. The fact is, a considerable number
of the miners, now that the question of arbi
tration has really become the foremost issue in
the present troubles, are suspicious and fearful
that it would not result in their favor. The
principle of arbitration is admitted by all to be
the only remedy that promises a settlement of
present diiliuulties and a guarantee for future
uninterrupted prosperity; and if the miners
could foretell the result, and know that it would
be favorable to them, there would be no dlv'
sion upon the subject.
A committee ot five was finally appointed to
report upon the question of arbitration. After
a protracted and earnest discussion of the sub
ject two reports. were at length submitted to
the Council a majority and a minority report.
Three members reported in favor of submitting
the question of wages to arbitration, while two
dissented, and made a minority report. It is
generally believed that the feeling, in favor of
submitting the question of wages to some kind
of reference or arbitration is growing. The
Lehigh and Hazleton regions oppose arbitration
bitterly, and it is understood will continue to do
so, while the Scranton and Schuylkill represent
atives are in favor of such a system. It is very
dlmcuit to determine what the final action of
the council will be, but the out-look altogether
is rather hopeful than otherwise.
We find also in the Eepublican the following
items of news in the turbulent coal district:
As Mr. David Owen was returning from
church at Hyde Park on Monday evening about
9 o'clock, he was assailed by two men near the
Welsh Presbyterian Church, Bellevue. He was
first shot at and then stopped by the men, who
demanded to know if he was not a blackleg
and a company man, and if he did not speak in
favor of resumption in 18G9. They further in
formed him that be ought to have been killed
then, and should be now. He was then set upon
and assaulted, but in the scuttle he succeeded in
extricating himself and started to run. He
was, however, soon overtaken, when he was
knocked down and kicked in a brutal manner.
Some young iaen in the neighborhood heard the
noise, and came to the rescue, when the ruffians
led in the direction of Taylorville, firing a shot
or two as they tied. These facts we learn from
Mr. Owen himself, who also bears evidence
upon his person of severe treatment.
RIOTERS HELD IN BAIL.
The names of a large number of the persons
engaged in the riotous proceedings on Thursday
and Friday were known, and warrants were
issued for their arrest. At the miners' meeting
held at Hyde Park on Monday, it was recom
mended by the officers of the W. B. A. that these
persons should appear before alderman Waters
and voluntarily surrender themselves. Accord
ingly yesterday morning Thomas Brooks, Charles
Gallagher, and L.Morgan came before Alderman
Waters and gave themselves up, on the com
plaint of Daniel Langstaff charging them with
riot, arson, and assault and battery.
The evidence elicited on this examination was
only a repetition of the reports of those dis
graceful scenes published in our columns, and
lully corroborating their truthfulness. Upon the
investigation it appears that Mr. Morgan, who
accompanied the rioters, was in ne way con
nected with their riotous acts, but was rather
counselling the men to desist from their evil in
tentions. He was accordingly discharge!. The
alderman censidered the testimony in the cases
of Gallagher and Brooks sufficiently strong to
hold them to bail for their appearance at court.
He accordingly required Brooks to give 15000
bail and Gallagher $2000 for their appearance at
the next term of the Mayor's Court of this city.
The W. B. A. officers procured the ballon which
they were released.
rOTTSVJLLE UNDER WATER.
Terrific Storm Streets and Cellars Inun
The Pottsville Miners' Journal of yesterday
Between 8 and 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon
a thunder storm came up suddenly and increased
in fury until it became one of the most territlc
and destructive that has visited this region for
many years. The rain came down In perfect
torrents, as if in one massive sheet, suddenly
converting the dusty streets, of a few moments
before into rivers of swift-running water, which
it was impossible for the inlets to the culverts
to accommodate. A heavy wind and some hail
accompanied the rain, which made the loose
signs, awnings, etc., hop around lively.
At (Second street and Church alley two im
mense streams of water came down, covering
either street from curb to curb and meeting as
they did struck the corner of Heffner'a livery
stable, and poured in through the door on the
alley front and out on the lower side, leaving
the stable floor thickly covered with mud and
stone washed down from the mountain side.
The back of the Pennsylvania Hall was com
pletely inundated, the water passing in on the
alley front and running through into the yard,
doing considerable damage. The saloon in the
basement of the ball was also drowned out, tne
water having overrun the pavement, and made
an entrance through tne windows. At tne cor
ner of Centre street and Church alley the gut-
ii were filled and tne street covered to the
deDth of a foot with mud washed down the
in Market street the damage was very severe.
munv fellara beinff filled with water and the
people being driven out of the lower story. As
far up aa Eleventh street the inundation com
menced, and 1st few dry cellars were to bo
found after the storm. The double frame houses
staudiLg back from Market street, between Mr.
Wolff's and Thompson's Church, were com
pletely iimnr'a'.ed, the water being four or five
feet deep in the lower story. From one of these
bouses a lady was carried by a gentleman, who
displayed great gallantry. Mr. Wolff's loss is
estimated at abont 92000, for which he blames
the borough authorities, averring that the enl
vert passing through his property is not of suffi
cient capacity nor properly constructed.
Near Centre, in Market street, the water over
flowed the pavement and ran into the new build
ing in process of construction by L. C. Thomp
son, where It worked its way down into Henry
Matten's cellar by tearing out a portion of the
stone foundation. In Lyon street the cellars
were all filled, and the piles of debris left along
the Bides of the street would Indicate that an
earthquake had visited that locality. In this
street the house of Uriah Good was struck by
lightning, and slightly damaged. The culvert
passing under Ulmer's slaughter house, back of
Centre street, burst in the basement of that es
bllshment, giving the water an outlet through
the building, thence into the cellars of Messrs.
Ulmer, Kennedy, and Zerbey, on Centre street,
doing considerable damage. In Minersvllle
street the damage to houses, cellars, nnd property
generally was very great many basements and
ground floors being Invaded by the element,
and families driven into the second story for
A GREAT DAY IN LONDON.
Opening of the "Royal Albert" Hull The
Ceremonies Speech of the Prince of
"Wales How the Queen Appeared, Etc.
Our London correspondent, in a letter pub
lished yesterday, gave some important facts
relative to the Kew London nondescript enti
tled the "Royal Albert" Hall. The following
additional particulars of the opening, from Eng
lish papers just at hand, will be read with
Queen Victoria, says the London JVt'ies, was
dressed in slight mourning. Princess Louise ap
peared in what looked like semi-bridal costume
namely, a bonnet, dress, and mantilla of white
corded silk, and looked fairer than on her wed
ding day a week before, while the Marquis of
Lome, who had assumed the kilt, made as hand
some and gallant a young bridegroom as eye
could wish to see.
In the Intervals of the ceremony an animated
conversation was carried on among the quartet
formed by the Queen and her royal daugnters and
daughters-in-law; and when the little Princess
Beatrice, who was dressed in pate green silk,
and with her pretty flaxen hair hanging loosely
down, appeared to call the Prince of Wales at
tention to a somewhat ludicrous incident then
in progre66,the good-humored gayety Increased.
A well-known metropolitan eugineer was ad
vancing from tho position he originally took up
on the dais to a more prominent central place
opposite the royal chair, and while edging
round inadvertently turned his back upon the
the Queen more than half the way. It is not
always easy to be natural when in the imme
diate presence of royalty, and the spectacle
of a distinguished professional gentleman
walking laboriously sideways, but with
the wrong side outwards, supplied the element
of humor to a scene which had lacked little else
previously. Ou the dais or
platform every one was either in uniform or in
professional or court dress. It seemed a little
bard on Mr. Bruce to be compelled to hold the
Queen's official reply to the address in his hand
during nearly the whole of the proceedings, for
it is difficult to carry a cumbrous roll of parch
ment like a swollen field-marshal's baton
gracefully, and the Home Secretary was moved
to keep it in his arms as if it were a baby in
long clothes moving it mechanically to and
iro, as n ne were emoarrassea witn tne same
baby or the Prince of Wales were reading it a
m'EECH OF THE 1'KINCB.
"May tt please your Majesty : As President of
the Provisional Committee of tne Koyal Albert LlaU
of Arts and Sciences. It is rny high privilege and
gratification to report to your Majesty the successful
completion of this Hall, an Important feature of a
long-cherished design of my beloved father for the
general culture of your people, in whose improve
ment ne was always deeply luteresteu. uncouragea
by your Majesty's sympathies, and liberally sup
ported by your subjects, we have been enabled to
carry out the work without any aid from funds de
rived from public taxation. 1 ana warranted la ex
pi eesing our confluence that this building will ju.Htiry
the conviction we expressed in tb report submitted
on the occasion of your Majesty laying its nrst
stone, teat by Its erection we should be meeting a
great public want. Your Majesty's Commissioners
for the exhibition of 1851, In further provocation of
my father's design for tbe encouragement of the
arts and sciences, an object which he always had
warmly at heart, are about to commence a series of
annnal international exhibitions, to the successor
which this hall will greatly contribute by the facili
ties wblch It will afford for the display of objects
and for the meeting of bodies Interested in tbe
industries wblch will form the subjects of suc
cessive exhibitions. Tbe interest shown in the
hall by the roost eminent musicians and composers
of Europe strengthens our belief that it will largely
conduce to the revival among all classes of the
nation of a taste for the cultivation of music. Your
MajeBty will hear with satisfaction that results
have justified the original estimate of the cost of
the building, and that, aided by the liberal assist
ance of your exhibition commissioners, the corpo
ration will commence Us management unfettered
by pecuniary liabilities, and under conditions emi
nently calculated to insure success. It Is my grate
ful duty to return to your Majesty our humble
thanks for the additional mark or your royal favor
which Is conferred upon us by your auspicious pre
sence on the present occasion, when our labors as a
provisional committee are drawing to a close. We
venture to hope that when we shall have resinned
our functions Into the hands of the governing body,
wblch will be elected under the provisions of the
royal charter granted to us, your Majesty will con
tinue to tbe corporation that measure of support
which bas been always graciously glveu to us."
Tbe Queen in a few words expressed her ad
miration of the hall, but her formal reply was
not read. It was printed in all the morning
papers, but is unimportant.
At tho conclusion of a prayer by the Bishop
of London, the Prince of Wales turned to the
anditorium and exclaimed in a loud voice, "The
Queen declares this hall open." Then came a
tremendous burst of cheering, clangor from
trumpets and loud booming from the park guns.
Mighty sounds burst forth from thousands of
lusty throats, and the vast crowds who were
wailing outside heard the cheering, and took it
up until the enthusiasm within and without was
acting and reacting, and cannon and musical in
struments were intermingling with indescribable
effect. The Queen moved from the dais to the
royal box, taking up her position there as a
spectator and auditor, the ceremonial of
opening being over. ner Majesty and
the royal and distinguished people
round her proceeded from the dais
down the crimsoa path, and'past the Beef-eaters
In the same order as on the arrival, the Princess
Louise and the Marquis of Lome enlisting much
attention, and the Queen bowing and smiling
graciously on all sides. A few minutes more,
and her Majesty is again bowing ber acknow
ledgments, but this time from her private box.
Tbe whole company is on its feet again, and tbe
Queen, who occupies the central seat between
the two divisions of ber box, curtsies deeply
three times, directly she is visible, and twice
again when she gains her seat in front.
After tbe opening of the Hall had been for
mally declared the national anthem was atrain
given, first by the orchestra, then a verse by tbe
choral sopranos, accompanied on the organ; tbe
next verse by tbe altos, with orchestral wind
instruments; and tbe concluding portion in full
choral harmony with orchestra and organ.

THE TRIP TO SANTO DOMINGO.
Some Unofficial Ideas About It and Annex
ation. George Alfred Townteod writes in his usual
free-aud-eay way to tbe Chicago Tribune about
the trip to Santo Domingo, as follows:
Franz Slgel nai returned with the San Domin
go party, and. if rumor be correct, looks npon
tbe.whole performance down there as ridiculous.
He has no opinion of Baez, no belief in the
island as a component of the American republic,
and no respect for anything about It. It Is he
who was said to have given Schurs the name
of the "Pickwick Club" as applied to the
8an Domingo Commistlon. General Boynton,
with whom I have talked about the trip,
gave tie following notions: He says that San
Domingo is a land of delight to the eye par
ticularly of a Northern man who has never
been anywhere near the tropics, on account of
the luxuriant growth of vegetation. He says
that the trip was like walking through scores of
miles of the Capitollno conservatory, through
flowers, vegetation rich colors, and all the pro
ductions of heat and moisture. Wherever a
rock could be made to crumble, vegetation
started forth, and those 'asclous features were
at first bewildering to the eyes of the explorers.
But, be says, there is no mortal reason why we
should want the island. A good deal of it has
gone to waste, and the rest is scarcely cultivated
at all. After spending some weeks among its
coasts, the view ef Kingston, in Jamaica a
town about the size of Alexandria, Va. seemed
like a social Paradise. He says that Baez
looks like a French dancing-master, and im
presses one as a conniving politician, and pretty
much of the "jockey" that Sumner describes.
He says that the Pickwick Club was a funeral
compared to this commission, so far as ridicu
lousness was concerned; for the three Commis
sioners had no harmony at all, Ben. Wade being
the only man who showed himself to be an
open-air, hearty old fellow. Dr. Howe and
Professor White looked upon their office as a
great secret State matter, and held frequent
private conferences in retired places, from
which old Wade would come out and blurt the
whole thing to the reporters, damning his con
federates up and down hill, for a set of ima
gines who thought themselves important.
Boynton says that there are no snakes on the
island, that he saw some centipedes and a great
many scorpions, that the people are all of a
come-day go-day -sort, idle and loitering, but
that as nobody in the commission on either side
spoke Spanish, they had hardly any conversa
tion with the people who could inform them.
Those who did speak it according to the books
could not make their learning Intelligible to the
natives. This shows how General Grant selected
his tan Domingo Commission, pretty much as
he does the most of bis officials sending them
to find out something, without regard to their
acquirements in the Spanish language, but that
their statements mlebt have some effect upon
the country. Boynton says that when they
came to Hay ti they did see a strong, sensitive,
cannibal-looking race, with negro skins, but
with straight noses, and all the appearance of
men who made a nation, and were going to fight
for it; who did not mean to be wheedled out of
it, and who could get up a revolution in earnest,
at short notice.
All the correspondents were delighted to come
home, nnd all who had a chance to go, and did
not do it, are delighted that they stayed at
home. Nearly all of them described the allair,
from beginning to end, to have been a perfect
farce. Three men and a lot of newspaper folks
were sent out junketing to a country, about
which they bad no knowledge, with a whole
fleet of sbips-of-war to accompany them, and
they came back knowing nothing about It, and
their only trophies are a lot of bugs picked up
by the naturallits. Was there ever such a farce,
even under this administration?
THE CHICAGO TRAGEDY.
The Killing of Dr. Scnnland by Ills Bro-
ther-ln-Law Committal of Leonard
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars Hull
From the Chicago Post, April 10.
The killing of Dr. Scanland by his brother-in-
law, Mr. Leonard, on Friday evening, has
created a widespread ana proiouna sensation,
not only on account of the prominence of some
of the parties involved, but also because of the
peculiar character of the antecedent circum
stances. The facts, as developed by the Coro
ner's inquest on Saturday, are briefly stated:
There was a sharp hostility existing be
tween the homicide and his victim, origi
nating in the lact that sura, ecanlaud
and ber brother, Mr. Leonard, believed that
Bcanland was guilty of a "flirtation" with a lady
who was ostensibly merely a patient, and tbe
resulting fact that Leonard took his sister's
part and remonstrated against the Intimacy.
Hcaniana was a tan, poweriui man, irregular
in his habits, and in the interviews that were
held seems invariably to have fallen into a pas
sion and abused Leonard, sometimes threaten
ing to chastise him, and even striking him on
at least one occasion. leonara universally bore
the reputation of an exceptionally excellent
young man, and being physically inferior to
Bcanland, and withal temperate, modest in hid
demeanor, and peaceful in nis disposition, gene
rally retreated whenever he found himself sub
ject to the doctor's uncontrollable rage. Once,
indeed, he sought the Intervention of the police,
but tbe sergeant on duty tailed to respond to his
Tbe fatal collision was precipitated by the
fact that Leonard desired Scanland to seek board
eleewhere, at the same time removing from hla
walls a portrait of the lady whose conduct was
1b controversy; and tbe ultimate consequences
were doubtless aggravated by the circumstance
that, a lew days before, Dr. Scanland bad
abused Leonard's si6ter and attempted to choke
her to compel her to disclose the hiding-place of
the portrait, and that he bad the day before
threatened Leonard with an uplifted cane.
Leonard procured a pistol and re
solved to defend himself. Scanland was
again betrayed Into a passionate as
sault, in which he drove Leonard out of his own
house to the sidewalk, and followed him up
with aggressive menaces. Kolf Obermeser testi
fied thai be stood within ten or fifteen feet of
them, and that Leonard, being persistently fol
lowed up and threatened, told Scanland, "If you
don't keep away I'll shoot you." The augry
man still advanced and strove to get near enough
to strike Leonard, when the Utter shot and

Court of Quarter Semiom Judge Paxson.
Henry Williams and Kate Stanley were convicted
of Btcaltng a balmoral skirt from an Eighth street
Thomas McQlInn, a little bootblack, was con
victed of stealing a nalr of shoes from the kitchen
I a awciitnK on s. is road street.
Emma Holland, otherwise known as "The Sailor
boy." was tried npon tne charge or blgamr. Alder
man White testified that In 1851 he married her to
Tommy Holland, who Is now living. Rev. Mr,
Allen testified that In 1870 he performed the marriage
ceremony between tne same woman and uutja
ynlnn. Colonel Small, representing tbe prisoner,
ollered to prove by Tommy Hollimd that when he
man led Emma he had another wife then living, and
he said he would argue from this that the mairlage
to Holland was a nullity and therefore not bigamy,
ber-anse the act of Assembly said that If any person
should have two husbands or two wives at the same
time such person should be guilty ef bigamy, and
the second marriage should e void, and Tommy's
marriage to her, being his second within tne mean
ing of the statute, was void, and she was at liberty
to marry whom she pleased.
The Judge said the point was a good one, but
there was difficulty In the way of proof, for Hol
land was not a competent witness to these facts.
Nothing was left, then, but the speech of the
Colonel, which was a very laughable one. He
argued that the act of Assembly under which this
case was tried was an absurdity, because It said the
second sarriage was both an oflense and a nullity,
and also that the first marriage with Tommy Hol
land, being a nullity because of hU previous mar
riage, and her second, being a nullity because of her
former with Tommy, she was never a wife, and was
now as free as the wind and as much at liberty to
choose her mate as a maiden of sixteen summers.
The Judge said a few words, and the jury said
