CHIVE STEPS AGAINST nMBI'STF.IMVi
TWO HOME RULE AMI NHMFNTS RE
.Iii Til) IS THE COMMONS.
London, .Tune 8.?Tho Radical memhffl of the
Rouse of Commons met in conference this even?
ing to discuss the wearisome and latia* protraction
ni the Homo Rale debate in committee. Henry
Labouchere spoke in favor of immediate and sum?
mary action to force the hill through the eommit
lee stajjo. The obstructionists, ho said, had wasted
weeks already in discussing and dividing an ut?
terly aseleaa and bopelesa amendments. The time
had come for ending the spectacle. Tho Unionist
amendments were nut intended fe be taker, seri?
ously, and it was ridiculous to treat them as if
they were offered ht good faith, when everybody
knew the contrary to he the cane.
Several other menihers spoke in support of y,r.
Labouchere? position, some of them expressing
oven more strongly then diaopproval of the Gov
ernment'a hesitation to shut off at once the ob?
struction of the Opposition.
Samuel Storey, member for Sunderland, who
prcidded at the conference, defended the Govern
merit's coorie Those on the outside, he said, must
realize thal they did not have all the moans of
knowing Mr. Gladstone's motives, and that they
would do bette! to let those beal acquainted with
the situation select tlnji own methods of push?
ing forwai I th.- bill Precipitate action on the
part of th.- Radicals would result, probably, only
in embarrassing the Premier.
Mr. Storey".- advil..- had the effect ol delaying
Bnal action until Friday, when the Radicals will
meet again Meantime pressure will be exerted
in private to move Mr Gladstone to decisive Mops
against the Unionist Bllibustcre.
In the House of Commons to-day a* G. Huteher.
L'onservative member for York, moved to amend
the Home Huh" bill so ns to preveni the Irish
Legislature Hom enacting lawn in reference to
tin- crimea ol conspiracy, combination, unlawful
isaeuil ty. rioting and cuni.- against the person.
(hi.f Soontar. Mer lo; san) that nothing

Sn Henry .lam.-, IJheral-L'nionist, then offered
i motion to tin- elfeni that anion., the powers
reserved from th- liish Ijcgialaturc should be the
i-ow.-; of thnling with seilition.
Ilome Secretary Asquith opposed the motion, on
the ground that there might ls? sedition against
the Irish (lovernment, and, tlierefore, the Irish
Li'gislature ought to have power to deal with
? -ii sedition The amendment waa rejected by
a vote of Jd! lo 255.

In short, iii" r.poit abowl t'ts unfavorable tarn
rn tanda) night had been exaggerated. Sfnee the
r.-.ort aros that Int >""u[ "", llv<> ,w" *V"i i""1
bim-o he (lid l^e t..' than two days, the report
no doubt was exaggerated. Judge Joseph F. Duly
was allowed to \ i-it flic actor at that time, *nd
he continued the statement in re.ard to his im?
provement, ftes- thia time the old auuv-Utto
.tenta werp resumed that Le was better each day
and always latter.
lt baa 'cou at all times since the case first
attracted attention extremely difficult to get
trustworthy information in regard to it. There
lins been an ehvtana effort whenever it was
possible lo ?ivo all nows of the patient's condition
a cl.rful turn at tho expense of absolute candor.
Not only have tim statements made Ivy different
persons leen constantly and systematically con
t ran ic tory, bot the same ajtiajaaj have practically
sontr-dleted themselves, fog instance, on a cer?
tain day it might in- announced that Mr. Bhoth
had recovered the uso of his arms, and throe days
lat.-r anxious inquiries about him would Ix* met
arith Hie reply that he was bettor to-day, and hal [
recovered the nce of his arms, implying, of course,
that be had not done so previous to thia day.
lhere were also occasional alternations aggaagasj
statements that ho had I COO Tared consciousness
and that ho bad never hoon unconsoious at all.
Titi; Sl.KIOt'SVKSS OF THF CASF ADMITTF.n.
The firct unoflicial account of Mr. Booth's sick
nesa which was aprend on tho day of the attack
wis that he mad had a stroke of paralysis. In
tho evening it was oin'eially announced that he
had merely exnertamoed ? return of his old trouble
of temporary loss of speech. The n?M day the I
seriousness of the OBOS ha I to ho admitted. From
every muree except Dr. St, Hair Smith reports
of danger have been constant. If wa- d'claro 1
that the actor waa gradually sinkinsr, that be
"ns fT .1 great part of the Baas \n n comatose
.-t;ifo, and that ho had boen at time* unconscious.
Pr. Smith said that, he slept well, and not foo
much, and that his condition was crrowin'.' more
hopeful, and be advised those arno made ini|ulric_
of him ti pay no attention to what they Blight
near from other aourees. The danger from tho
clot of blood on tim brain was never denied,
however, by anybody, and nobody daaded that
another hemorrhage in tho brain, like that arhleh
was thc cause of tho first attack, would be fatal, j
Open complaint was finally mid.'' thal the reports
given out by l>r. St. (lair Smith and Dr. Fre?

THE ELEMENTS IN A RAGE.
RAIN. WIND AND LIGHTNING IN TUMUIr
TUOUS RIVALRY.
i
MICH DAMAfiE BY ALI, THREE-BOLTS STRIgB
CASTLE GARDEN AND OTHER BUILDINGS-;
TREES OVERTURNED AND STREETS
FLOODED ? OPPRESSIVE HEAT
EXDKD BY THE STORM.
In thunder. lightning and in rain tho elemental
met yesterday in a carnlvul of deduction. Ai
heavy rainstorm, accompanied hy thunder, and
lightning, descended upon the city in tho after?
noon and loft in its trail roofless buildings, dam
axed piers, devastated parks and burning ware?
houses. An immense warehouse filled with thou?
sands of halos of cotton was struck by lightning,
and the occupants of several buildings in Broad?
way narrowly escaped death hy tko bolte. The
foundations of Castle Garden were shaken, and
the roof of the old struafure was broken by tho
fall of coi Holding and bricks, which were ka_M
down upon it hy the stroke of the lightning.
The electric flames hovered about tho spam of
raaaeaa, and brilliant flashes of lightning darted
across tho darkened sky. On the ferryboats
whi.h were in the stream when tho storm waa at
ifs height, there was almost a panic, and on
Several of the trains of the elevated railway
women scroniu-d and hid their lad's (rom tho
blinding glare of thc lightning.
Har day had Ishmi intensely hot and sultry and
the air was stifling and humid. When the first
few dr ps of rain began to fall at .1:0S p. m. it
looked as il a brief shower had eoRW to cool the air.
The shower became a rain and the rain became
a thunderstorm. Thc water seemed to fall in
sheens, rho gutten and sewers erato flooded in less
flinn half an hour and tho streets looked like run
Rlng rivers. Sowers in Brooklyn and New-York
wore choked until they burst aad sent up muddy
waterspouts.
FAr.f. IN THE TEMPER \TURE.
The rain pounsl down at irregular intervals un?
til .'. :30 p. in. The total rainfall was l.O.'l inches.
Before the naaning af tho rain the temperature waa
K8 degrees. While the storm was ut its height
the thermometer fell to 08 decrees, nnd last even?
ing the temperature was 71 degrees. The moot?
ing of a cold wave with the intense heat of yes?
terday produced the storm. The wind blew for
tho greater part of the time from thc southwest
and sctirriid along at the rate of forty miles in
hour when tho storm was in possession of tho
town.
Old Castle Garden was one of tim first marks
of the element*. Tho building is being fitted up
as an v inariuni, and 100 workmen were busy there
yesterday. A tall chimney is building. It ia
now fifty-two feet high, mid the pkms call for a
height of seventy-two foot. The great circular
chimney was yesterday surrounded hf stout scaf?
folding. Tho lightning struck tlie scaffolding
yesterday and stripped U fi oin the chimney. Tha
wind hurled the mass of timbers upon thc root of
the (inrden and broke scores of windows and sky?
lights. Tlio chimney was crackid clear around
twelve foot from tho top. A larne part of it must
be removed and rebuilt.
'I he masons who w.to working oo fha chimney
had inst stopped in-ile the entrance of th- Ua_r l<-n
when the cush came. (hm mun arno was star.d
lnc under a skylight was badly cut upon Hag arma
bf splintered wood and bits of llyimr xlass. Tho
tall flagpole upon tho top of the building was
split in two and the roof was strewn with splinters
of thc pole several feet in length.
A STARTLING ELECTRICAL DISPLAY.
Several of thc tenants of the Washington Build
ins aaw tho lightning flashes darting over tits
old <Jnrdon like forked tnfguos of flame. Thef
Hld that they never witnessed such a weird
electrical display. Nour hy, Pier A, of the Dock*
Danni lineal, was badly damaged, and the cor?
rugated iron doors at the ede were lieut and
twiged like cardboard.
i Tho buildimr No. 7! BroodWOf and its oo
I cupania hui a Barrow escape from a lightning
flash. The storm arne at it? height when there
j was ii fln*h of lightning which blinded every
one tn that part af the eily. An instant hitor
it was followed hf ?'? terrific thunder clap that
sounded ii? if it came Hom immediately ahem
I the building Tho aound of tho thunder Iud
' .scarcely died nwav when the occupants of thia
. building found that the hallwafe wore full of
! moke and fulling soot. An examination waa
mud.' by Hm Janitor, nnd ho found that tho elec?
tric bolt had gone down tho chimney and dis
appoared i.?t>> the earth. It atlrred ag 'he soot
iiiui arni it pouring uni ol every oneniag No
mm was hurt, but everg ORO in the building /
, f. lt that he had Ind a narrow eacono.
WOODWORJ" gBATTERED ASH i.I.ass BKOK-ST,
Ons of tho oif.cts of tho storm w.is the partial
eui lying awry of the bri.lue which oouiioet.s tlc*
I Custom House building arith tho ban__taag opposite
it in Exchange Pteee, in which are thc qtnrtors
of the Naval Oilier. It toro away the western
aide of tho bridge and smashed most of thc glass
in it.
It was ? wild prank which tim wind plafOd with
the roof of the be?gag*>-reom of the Staten Island
Ferry. The room kl a strmtum about 100 feet
long and IS feet in heights It is at tho mar
of the Staten Island ferry benet. It is d building
consisting ?t ? framework of iron covered hf
I rotragated iron. The rout projected far over tho
I sulo ol the building. The wind caught the pro?
jecting Bange of nattai and peted and aaaggoi at it
until a section of tiic roof lorty feet long wan
lifted up anil earrted over upon tho house Of tho
| Hamilton-ore. ferry and upon the South Ferry
Station of the Manhattan Flevuted Hallway.
I The big sheet was in its flight through the air,
divided Into f?ur pieces. The sheets of metal
loll With a, crash, and narrowly mt.sxd fulling
j upon persons hurrying to tho ferries jt*
A part of thc tower on the Thuty-nlnth-at. ?*?
ferry wis blown off and tho heavy front of a
freight house of the Now.-York Central and Hudson
River Bailrsad was hurled down upc a the -round.
Along South and Vtfest eta. horses attached to ?
heavily loaded trucks were maddened with fright*
tine team ran into the South Ferry lions;', and
others narrowly missed rushing Into tlie rivr.
The nubile parks eecro nt the merci of the wind
iind lightning. Si\ ol tho liucst trees in lottery
I'nrk were ruined by the lightning or torn up by
the nols by the force'of the winds. Tho gras*
in tie park-* was strewn with tho branches torn
from the tr.vs.
j LHillTN'lNQ STItlKES A >1'1 UK.
In the h.'L'ht af the storm the cross on tho
spire of St. Mary's Uoiuau Catholic Church at
timmi and Badge sts. was struck by the lightning.
A part ol the cross was broken oil and lol! upon
tho pavement Mow.
Tho rainstorm took advantage of every open
window, and many nooses and apartments wera
flooded. The windows of the Produce Exehajajjg
were all up when the storm cunio, and before tho
attendants could clow them the floor of tho Ex
ahongaj wus flooded. As it wan covered with flour
titre roaulteu a sticky mixture which the san*
ployes could not remove wit lunn much trouble.
