L1N Aug 27 Unless Mr Labouohero
ha some documentary evidence held In reserve
ol hls enemies he
serve for tho confounding olhll oneliol
Will not come out of his controversy with Mr
Gladstone with much credit Ho commenced
tho deliberate assertion
the discussion nlth delborlto Ilsorton
tat his exclusion from tho Cabinet was duo
t the direct intervention of the Queen but
his statement In this weeks Tridh does not
show that his complaint was founded upon
anything more than suspicion or Idle gossip
7 and against this Is to bo sot Mr Gladstones
emphatic declaration that tho Queen hud
nothing to do with tho matter
Tho suggestion that Lnboucherea opposi
tion In the House of Commons to tho granting
of money to tho members of tho royal family
Induced tho Queen to object to his Inclusion
In the Ministry seems disposed of by the fact
that an Important poat was offered to Samuel
Btorey who has oppoted such royal grants
more fiercely and porslstontlr even than La
bouohere Storey declined to take the office
but tho Queen had offered no objection to his
name which Figured In the preliminary list
fl submitted to her by Mr Gladstone Further
I more Sir Charles Duke I strenuous opponent
In former Gladstone
of royal grants was a forlor
The Information obtained by TiT HUN re
porters justifies the belief that Mr Gladstones
decision not to ask Labotichare to take office
a taken several months ago In consequence
of editorials which appeared In lYnth urging
the postponement of homo rule until various
British reforms had boon accomplished Tho
editorials which woro written In Mr Labou
r A oheres mojt cynical manner virtually urged
Mr Gladstone to betray tho trust which the
Irish members had reposed In him and to sot
S J at naught the most solemn obligations and
engagements Those articles caused some
stir at tho time and created a feeling of un
0 easiness among the Irish leadors which was
I only removed bY direct assurance that the
1 editor ot Tnitk In no way represented Mr
Gladstone views There is I good reason to
believe that this repudiation was followed
shortly afterward br a confidential Intimation
that Labouohere would not be a member of
the Liberal Government
S Labouchere has lost much prestige over this
J business Peoplo had learned to regard him
as a fearless Independent politician who did
bot care 0 button for place or powor no Is
tow seen In the unpleasant character of I dis
appointed office seokor criticising as mallg
bantlras any Tory members of tho Ministry
from which he has been excluded and sneer
ing a his leader Humors natural under
the rlraumstancee are current of Lnbou
eheres Intention to form a section of malcon
tents for the purpose of worrying Gladstone
in the same manner that Churchill and the so
called fourth portrharrlod the Tory leaders
BOle ears ago but in the present temper
of th country it Is not likely that many
men will venture to follow Labouohere In I
this dangerous and dlsroputablo work The
dragging or tbo Queens namo Into tho con
troversy has distressed Mr Gladstone and
greatly shocked constitutional pedants I is
not calculated t do Labouchore much good
eepeniajly after Mr Gladstone statement
Even In Labouchorels own Radical town
Northampton nt tho meetings held to protest
against his exclusion from office mention of
the Queens name has been enthusiastically
cheered and elsewhere I popular feeling Is undeniably
Of this
deniably against Labouchere course
does not provo anything except that Labou
ehcro has made a mistake
Speaklncr In Dublin tho othor day Mr Dillon
declared that tho Irish leaders wore In pos
I session of understandings and agreements
which In their judgment If carried out and
r be believed they would be honorably carried
out would satisfy the people of Ireland I
Is understood that some of thOM agreements
p are In writing and will bo made public should
i occasion require such UO to bo made ot them
At A matter of fact U good many Irish mem
bers believe that tho only gfnuino Homollulors
In the new Cabinet are Mr Gladstone Karl
spencer and Mr John Morlcyl and they hold
that It is their boundon duty bearing in mind
the lessons taught by history to bu constantly
on guard against treachery Such an attitude
mar appear ungracious at this juncture but
I Is eminently wise
Speaking at 1 nubile meeting In Newcastle
on Wednesday evening Mr Fowler 1 very In
fluential member ot the Cabinet said tho Irish
members were 1 power nt Westminster which
they could not despise I would mako Itself
J felt He dtd not like It any moro than tho
l 1 meeting did He did not like the power of
I I Irish members nor did ho Hko to give up the
time of Parliament t Irish questions
in which member ot
I that Is the spirit one mOlbor
the Cabinet avowedly regards homo rule It Is
pretty certain that there aro many other unwil
ling horses Inside and outside tho Ministry
who will have to bo spurred to their work
Many thine tend to show In fact that tho
Irish leaders will havo to be suspicious and
vigilant to the very end If the pledges publicly
of value
made by public men art any
Mr Gladstones Government in tho coming
will mako serious
Mislon of Parliament wi Ilko a
attempt to deal with the difficult question of
how to restore their holdings to Irish tenants
evicted during the agrarian war of the last
few ers Mr Hhaw Lefovre a member of
the Cabinet speaking at Gal way In December
1880 said the first work of tho now Parlia
ment would beto remedy the state of things
that had resulted from disputes on these sev
eral estates In the country Ho would not be
t I a member of any Government ho was going
to lay he would not remain lu Parliament It
same help wero not extended to the people
4 who through this long period have suffered
I and sacrificed so much
In thrt same month and yearho said lt Drog
hedathatho held nnd firmly believed that
the Masseroeno tenants wore porfudly just
ned In refusing to accept any terms until tha
evicted tenants wore reinstated and when
bOle rule was granted an equitable measure
l would be passed to put these tenants again In
possession of their farms as well as all other
vloted tenants In Ireland
p Ir Shaw Lefnvre was almost tho last man
appointed to a Cabinet position although his
claim were undeniable generally rocog
nleed and In the Unlit nt his public utterances
it may be presumed that tha dollY was duo to
his refusal to accept office without somo un
derstanding with Mr Gladstone In regard to
S the evicted tenants
The Tories are again attempting to force
Gladstones hand by publishing bogus details
respecting his Homo Hula U hut they do not
appear to havo Imposed upon anybody anti
they have signally fsllod tu draw out the Grand
Old Man who has spent the week as far as
outsiders can see In saying kind platitudes to
j Liberal excursionists visiting bazaars anti
making speeches about the cultivation of
flowers for all the world a though ho wern a
simple country suulro Instead ct t a statesman

with the cares of an empire on his mind The
Tories have no heart for anything today
Lvt since the ronoral election when Old
Sharlls won a Liberal sMt at Newcastle and
headed John Morley tho second man elected
by 3000 votos the Tories have been gleefully
declaring their Intention ot throwing Morley
out o his seeking reelection on acceptance
ot the office of Chief Secretary for Ireland
Tho Liberals themselves did not like tho
prospect ot having to overcome 1 hostile ma
orltr ot 3000 but they went to work manfully
and have just been rewarded by a host signal
trIumph the great Tory majority having
boon turned Into a Liberal majority ot
over 1700 Morley refused all requests
to modify his views on the eighthour
mentions although the Tory candidate had
truckled to tho worklngmcn Irreconellnblos
on that subject In 0 disgraceful manner He
preferred to rest his claims to the peoples
support upon his last services in tho cause of
labor and ho deliberately endeavored to raise
the contest to I higher plane br making home
rule tho chief point at Issue In doing this
he QuIte unconsciously dangled a bait to the
Tories which they swallowed wllh the greatest
gusto Thor wero absolutely confident ot
success and were onlr too glad to
proclaim that the election was being I
fought upon the question of confidence
or no confidence In tho Governments
Irish potter Now In their sore distress and
wild they howling threats of petitioning

The appointment of Lord liibblosdale to the
post of Master of the liuokhounds caused
much disappointment to the Liberals as it
was thought t indicate tho Intention t con
tinue the cruel sport of hunting tame doer In
Windsor Great Park I seems however that
the remonstrances in the newspapers have
been brought to the Queens notice and she
readily acquiesced in Mr Gladstones sugges
tion that the coming season for which prepa
rations have boen made which cannot well be
cancelled now shall bo the last Except look I

salary 1500 the only duty the master has

His lordship started In with tho weather
but larnoll was discouraging unanimous
Ultimately however tho Irish loader grudg

In the end the amateur reporter obtained a
very good story about that and other Interest

It Is not generally known that the flght be
tween Ted Prltcliard and Jim Hall took place
at Squire Ablutions place near Brighton
This fact In Itself has no great significance
but when I Is coupled with others It gives
strength to the rumor that Prltcliard was go
Ing to win time light by hook or crook Tho
fact that there was only ono of Halls friends at
tho ring sllo and that his two stanohewt sup
porters 1arson Davies and Joe Choynskl woro
loft shows that there was something more than
accident In the arrangement Whon Jim
Wakcley Phil Lynch and Charley Johnston
wero left behind at tho SmllhKllraln fight In

occasion the leaving of Davie and Choynskl I
was deliberately planned That those two I
gentlemen feel aggrieved BOOS without saying i

fact that Squire Abtngton had nil his chosen

Jimmy Carney Bill Smith and 81m Iacklock
The major part of those worthies wero Instru
mental In preventing Frank Slavln beating
Jem Smith in Bruges That 1ritchard did not
win Is no fault ol hl6 friends but the Immense
superiority of Hall was so pronounced that
nothing short of murder could have deprived
him of tho victory I a thought that
Hall would accompany DavIe and Choyn
ski back to America as ho had all
along said be Intended to bo pres

that t lie wa anxious to rUb I match with
Bob Fitzslmmons but every one was aston

FiTTsnunou Aug 27An attempt to wreck
time westbound Chicago limited from New
York on the Fennsrlvrnla road ono mile east
of Enon Valley was mndo last night A largo
pile ot ties were heaped high across the main
track nnd across the siding at that point as
A farmer named Adams saw the obstruction
and his efforts In removing them which ho
continued In spite of the two gunshot wounds
which lie received from the wreckers hiding
In ambush saved the train
The train carried considerable money and
tlio supposition Is that a cane ot train robbers
placed the ties on the track for robbery
Enon olley Station Is fjrtrflvo miles west
of Pittsburgh and the country la I wild There
Is not I house within half a mile Time Chicago
limited left the Union Station at 045 oclock
city time Tho train was a llttlo late and was
running very task when approaching Enon
The express reaches Fnnn about 1045
oclock Farmer Adnnn had been visiting
some friends near Enon and was returning
home While walking along time track he saw
something largo and blaok on Ito track Ho
know that the limited was almost duo and
hastened see what the objoetwas Ho found
I plo of ties heaped up on the main and side
tracks In such a war as to mako It but too
evident that they were placed there to wreck
tho train There was no time to bo lost or to
give an alarm
Mr Adams sot to work to remove the ob
struction single handed As ho throw tho
first tie ono sldo ho thought ho heard I silent
noise at the edge ot the woods but In his haste
ho paid no attention to It
Ho had removed two of the ties when a shot
rang out of tho darkness and his hat was
knocked off his head by tho bullet Then
elmo a voice
Let upon that or well kill you
No I wont replied the farmer
rlIlod Ill clear
this track or die In tha attempt
Then a bullet wont whizzing by his ear Ho
paid no attention to tho shot and kept throw
Ing oIT tlio ties when another bullet struck Ms
hit Even this did not dotor him and a mo
ment later another shot was Arnd
Time ball grazed his forehead over tho left
eye With tho blood streaming down his face
ho kept at his work and just had tho last tie
removed from the track whon a fourth shot
was tired This timno the bull struck him In
tho lee Tho last tie had hardly been
leI 10 hld hlrdl re
moved whon tho train camo dashing along nt
I high rate ot speed
Tho passengers or trainmen never know the
danger they had escaped and the train con
tinued on Its journey After removing tho
ties Adams fell t tho ground exhausted
After ho had regained strength enough to
walk he continued on down the track and was
met by two menho had their uUontlon at
tracked by the shooting Ho continued on
down the track until he reached
trak unU tho American
Hotel at Enon whoro ho told the story of tho
attempt to wreck the train and his exulting
experience Ho was tjuvoreo nun blood from
his wounds and was taken to the hotel where
his Injuries were dressed after which ho was
taken to his home and a doctor summoned
His wounds are painful but are not danger
ous unless blood poisoning should sot In
Adams bays that ho saw tho two men who
shot at him when he was removing tho ob
struction from the track Ho cannot give a
description ot them as It was too dark but ho
could see that they wore both tall Whon tho
second shot was tired athim Adams cried out I
Ha I know you felons I
Shortly after the news of tho attempted
wreck reached Enon a POSHO of men started
out and RnnrMipil the wnnda In i ttA > flfl I

tho train t and cave his engineer orders to run
slowly When the train reached Galileo two
men boarded tho train and had tickets from
that point to Allegheny
Their actions seemed peculiar and attracted
tho attention of thin conductor who after
watching them for n time decided that they
might have been connected with the attempt
Ho telegraphed to Allegheny to have a cnuplo
of policemen moot the train Ofllcors Mom

The men gave their names as M I A Kritno

to strip time walls and boxes of their beautiful
decorations and leave them black and bare
Time lire broke out shortly alter 0 oclock It
had Its origin on the fourth door directly over
the stage whero tIme frame said to be the
largest In tim world upon which the scenery
la painted Is fixed Just how the fire started
Is not known positively The only person who
was In the room at time tlmo Is Cornelius Ho
gan time steno painters boy who says hi
doesnt know Secretary H M McLaren at
tributes it to spontaneous combustion The
most probable explanation offered Is that the
fire was started by a lighted cigarette Young
Hogan had bean alone In the room for an hour
before time fire broke out
The opera house occupies the plot of ground
200 by JCO feet bounded by Broadway For
tieth street Seventh avenue and Thlrtynlnth

roaflng which was sot with glass forming a 5
mammoth skylight f4
1 itP
Those trusses carried the wolcht of the loft
and the croat nro tank In addition to the roofing
Time fire tank was suspended under the ridge
of this roof It was of Iron and was 78 feet
long It held 8000 gallons of water and was
intended to supply automatic sprinklers
which were expected to flood the whole stags
area If time occasion should demand it The
tank was regulated to open automatically 1U
numerous valves at 120 degrees

Seventh avenue wall and the platform was
raised and lowered br a mechanical device

auditorium in case of fire was not down be
cause the house was not In commission
