Upon the rra?*mbling of the Parnell com mission in London yesterday Richard Pipott *a? again called for examin liion. He testified that in January. 18-i?, ho had two or three in ierview? with Eag"He Dans at Lausanne. Wit mm tola Davis ihat h*? required material for a pamphlet on tbe 1*anue. and that the docu njnts procured most be ?abrftantiated bv ?ie iHtureii. J * i he next day Davis said he had carefnllr considered the matter an J conld not cotnolv *i-h the request because the Fenian brother hood was bound to Mr. Parnell n >t to inter *r? Wlt,i "i** movements until the expiration or a certain xriod. Several mouths later witness revisited Lausanne and attain saw Davis. Davis still adhered to his refusal to impart information until the day witness left. He then proposed to Davis to write the pamphlet and o<*te for its publication. He offered him A100 to give the principal facts. Davis did so. and witness took notes of Davis' statement. Immediately afterward witness wrote a de tailed account of the interview at the hotel at Lausanne on hotel paper. He gave Mr. Hous ton the copv that was read yesterday. In con sequence of a letter which lie received from a frieud in Pans early in April. 1886. witness bid a conference with Hoostop and then went to JTtns. He remained in that city a week or more before he learned anything. Then he waa . ACCOSTED OS TH* 8TKF.ET by a man giving the name of Morris Mnrphy. who said he had been a compositor in witness' e mploy. He did not recognize the man. but Mw no reason to doubt bis statement. Thev con versed for some time and subsequently met ?gam. when Murpliv said he had not' been able to ascertain anything abont the documents. A week later Mnrphy said he had found the documents in a bag. He described the bag to witness and said it contained live or six of t^an s letters, some of l'arnell's and some old accounts. W itness said he was authorized to ?nd tbe documents and asked the price for surrender. Mr. Murphv at tir-t wanted 1.000 pounds, but afterwards said he would take oOO pounds. The next dav Murphy showed the bog and its contents. Witness read the letters and made memoranda, but did not actually copy the letters. Piggott here identified six letters of EagarTs, five of Parnell's, including the letter a fac ?imile of which appeared in the Timer, and scraps of accounts, which were produced in court as the contents of the bag. A TRIP TO NEW TORE. Piggott said he did not know Mr. Pamell's writing when he looked at the bag. He knew his signature. He believed that the signatures attached to the letters were those of Mr. 1 urnell. He had no idea a** to who wrote the body of the letters. He did not know Mr. Campbell. Mr. Pamell's secretary, and had never seen his writ:ng. Wit less returned to Lnglanii and saw Mr. Houston, who. after con *a"! H WV Prepared to pay the amount demanded for the letters. He returned to France on April 30.18*5. and told Murphv that he wonld accept his offer. Mnrphv said that agents of the Clan-na-Gael from New York claimed the letters, and in order to obtain them it would be necessary to go to Sew York to obtain authority from the heads of the Clan na-Gael. Mnrphy suggested that witness go *,ro,n?lv to going, know ing that he wonld incur great danger. After a long discission Murphy told witness that it would be utterly impossible to obtain the letters unless wifne-- went to New York Wit YorkCOMUUed WlUl llou"ton *nd wel4t to New SWORE ON A CATHOLIC PBA1ER-BOOK. There he saw Breslin. to whom Murphy had given him a letter. He had not known Breslin before the meeting. He did not know what Murphy's letter contained: it was sealed.

These men. he said. repr. sented the Clan-na-GaeL He made me swear on a Catholic prayer-book that under no circumstances would I reTeal the source from which I had obtained the documents I also swore that I would not mention names, and if any proceedings followed the publica tion of the letters that I would not testify." DENIES THAT HE IS A POBGEB. Piggott did not get the documents that night Houston had said that he would take the docu ments on Piggott s description without coming to Paris himself, but Piggott pressed him to come. Witney detailed the purchase of the letters and Murphy's offer to repurchase them, corroborating Houston's testimonv on this point. Witness had nothing to do directly or indirectly with the writing of the letters. "The suggestion that I forged tiiem is quite untrue " he said. itness knew Egan's writing and sig nature and was convinced that Egan wrote the Jettors ascribed to him.

Pigott continued: '*A man named O'Brien visited me in Dublin under the aliasof Sinclair He said that Parnell had sent him to try to get me to assist Egan.

Attorney-General Webster now read a long correspondence between Piggott and Lewis. WALKED 12?TO A TBAP. In his letters Mr. Lewis averred that he and his associates were aware that Pigott was a forger before they saw him. He suggested that P:ggott meet Mr. Farnell again. Piggott r< plied that Lewis' letters confirmed his convio tion that when he acceded to Labonchere's wmi for a private interview he had walked into a trap. He was prepared to meet any proceed ing->. and he declined to meet Mr. Parnell aga;n. Witness, continuing, said that Mr. La bouehere repeatedlv wrote to him in Dublin, pressing him to testifv and offering to pay his passage. At the end of January he received a letter containing ?10. He was anxious to avoid testifying. He was aware that it was dangerous to offend the Clan-na-Gael, and that he might be murdered. A CUIBOOKAPHIC TEST. Sir Charles Russell cross-examined Piggott. He asked the witness to write the words "live lihood. likelihood, Richard Piggott; prosylit ism. Patrick Egan. P. Egan. and hesitancy." This the witness di& Piggott said he had cor responded with Mr. Fonder from 18S1 to 1884. He denied that he had communicated with every Irish secretary since 1870. To the best of his belief he did not write to Earl Spencer in 1H73 offering valuable information for money. He wrote to Sir (J. O. Trevelvan asking for money on account of his support of the gov ernment, but be did not offer to furnish infor mation. MOOOTT's COXTFSSOR. ne denied that in his statement to Mr. Lewis he said that the publication of the letters by the 7\met had alarmed him, and that he had. therefore, asked Archbishop Walsh to place him in communication with Mr. Parnell in or der to expose the forgeries. He did not think that Sir Charles Russell ought to question him regarding the letters to Archbishop Walsh, be cause he regarded the archbishop as his con fessor. He denied that he knew that the arti cles on "Parnollism and Crime" were being prepared. A LETTEB TO ARCHBISHOP WALSH, Sir Charles Russell here produced a letter from Piggott to Archbishop Walsh, dated March 4. 1887, and .marked "private and confidential." In this letter Piggott told the archbishop that he was aware that proceedings were contem plated with the object of destroying the Par nellites' influence in parliament. All that he could indicate was that the proceedings would consist of the publication of statements tend ing to show the complicity in crime of Parnell and his colleagues. He assured the archbishop that he wrote with a full knowledge of these designs, and could indicate how they could be suecessfulv combatted and defeated. Sir Charles Russell pressed the witness to explain how these designs could have been de feated if the letters were genuine. Piggott re plied that he had not the slightest recollection of writing anything of the kind. He did not recollect what charges were meant in the let ter. and. in fact, he did not recollect the letter at all. He could not have had the Parnell let ters in mind when he wrote to the archbishop. He must have been thinking of other charges, but lie could not say what those charges were. Sir Charles Russell then read the postscript to the letter, as follows: "I need hardly say that did I consider the parties really guilty I should not dream that your grace would pur take in an effort to shield them. M v only wish is to impress upon your grace that the evidence is app.-trt ntly convincing and probably suffi cient to secure a conviction by an English jury." Piggott reiterated that the Parnell letters were not in his mind when he wrote the post script. He added that he never thought the ; letters in themselves constituted a serious charge. He asked for the archbishop's reply, which Sir Charles Russell produced. Piggott, after inspecting the archbishop's letter, said he believed that he never received it. The commission then adjourned. Jlen's Fashion Notes. From the Sew York World. An idea of the coming styles of neckwear for ! spring may be had from advance samples. Miny of thejpatterns are exceedingly loud. A notable effect is a crushed-strawberry or rose tint, set off with showy broad stripes and large figures. The puff scarf will give way somewhat to the four-in-hand in fashionable circles, and the Teck will also be much worn by medium dress ers. The opera hat. which for some time past has been onlv a recollection, promises to return. London club men are affecting it again. Pongee silk handkerchiefs, with edges of colored embroidery, are in considerable favor. Neat plaids and small checks and stripes will be popular patterns for suits this season. The bath wrap is slowly but surely gaining ground as an adjunct to gentlemen's ward robes. A soft material resembling Turkish toweling is the most popular fabric, although rii-her and heavier materials are in consider able use. Mustache combs in solid gold are a luxurious conceit greatly prized bv a few 5th avenue swells. The fad is too costly to gain a wide cir | culation. Velvet collars on swallow-tail coats are seen in London. It is considered in good mode to wear embroidered trousers. Double-breasted I evening vests are also much worn in the British ! metropolis. j Every indication points to a continuance of the popular Lin shades in hats, gloves and un 1 derwear. Diagonal cloth in wide wale will be a favor ite fabric for spring top-coats. The erstwhile popular ruffled shirt fronts, slivjhtlv modified in accordance with the dicta of modern taste. are being to some extent re vived. A strong prejudice exists against them, however. A convenient contrivance for wheelmen is a leather wristlet containing a pocket for a watch, so arranged that the dial of the watch is at all times exposed to view. There are no less than twenty extreme shapes in collars now on the market.and the list is being constantly added to. Outfitters sav there can no longer be anv doubt that public taste is undergoing a decided revolution as to the styles of collars. Many of the novelties are quite picturesque. In watch-chains there is a noticeable leaning towards large links in both plain and traced gold. Sqnare-pointed link cuffs have won in the contest for supremacy for evening drees wear. The neglige dining suit, which came out in Loudon during the past season, has made its appearance in Sew York, but it has not as yet caught on. The suit consists of a coat and trousers made of velvet, satin or other soft material, and is designed to be worn at infor mal home dinners. The trousers, which are loose and easy, are supported by a girdle about the waist. TJhe coat is double-breasted, with small shawl collar and square points. It is held in place by corded loops. Americans are becoming more and more fas tidious about their umbrellas. Some of the l..test makes have spider frames, so small that when tightly rolled ihey are less bulky than an ordinary st-.ut walking-stick. Pocket-knives, with pedometer and calendar attachments, are among the fashionable in genuities of the new year. They cost all the way from *3 to $18, according to the character of mourning. The rage for ultra-wide trousers has appa rently d.minished in intensity. Some of the swell tailors are making medium widths for several well-known exemplars of fashion. Notwithstanding the many recent attempted innovations in the domain of dress suits tfie clawhammer coat, in all its severe simplicity, is recognized as the correct garment for even ing wear. Designers auJ fashionablo tailors scout the idea of any greater change than slight modifications of the swallow-tail being indorsed by men of good taste or good judg ment. Poisoned by Burning Fur. cubious accident is a* iowa school?teaches AXD SCHOLARS OVEBCOXE. A singular case of wholesale poisoning that came near proving fatal is reported from the Morning Side school, in Sioux City, Iowa, taught by Miss Hattie Conniff. Shortly after school was called Wednesday a peculiar odor was noticed, and searching for the source, the teacher opened the door to the closet where the-scholars keep their wraps. A fur cap, be longing to one of the boys, had fallen into a bncEet containing hot ashes, and was sending off clouds of smoke. The teacher seized the bucket and started for the door, but when half way across the room was overcome by the smoke, and dropped into the nearest seat al most unconscious. A boy thea took the bucket, but at once succumbed and fell to the floor. Twentr of the pupils who sat where the smoke reched them were deathly sick, and were un able to rise alone. By superhuman efforts the teacher managed to get the door open, and the fresh air revived her so she helped the chil dren out doors, where they lay on the ground in agony. At the end of three hours all had recovered sufficiently to be taken home, but were very weak. It is supposed that poison was contained in the coloring matter of the cap, and that it waa set free by the burning. WHEN FORTTTTfK SMILES. The Turning Point In One's Career Come* at Forty Yean. From the Philadelphia Times. Alexander T. Stewart came h? 1825 from Ire land, where he waa born in 1903. Ha opened ? little linen store on Broadway, and gathered wealth very slowly at flrat. a* moat other men had done. He waa prudent, shrewd and origi nal. and gradually became a heavy importer; but he was forty-fire year* old when he became' able to pot up the first of two great store* in which he afterward transacted his businea*. Henry Clews, the Wall street millionaire, spent his early manhood at. a clerk, and when the war broke out and fonnd him a broker in a small way, he began to make money. He and his partner, Mr. Livermore. who retired at the close of the war with half a million. Jobbed in certificates of indebtedness, and laid the basis of the wealth which Clew* afterward ac crued. Henry Villard came from Germany at twenty years of age. and sold subscription book* at flrst. then became an irregular writer for the press. He studied law later, bat gave that up and adopted journalism as his profession He wag forty-one year* old when, in 1874. he began the great Oregon railway operation that made him wealthy. Nme years later, when the famous golden spike was driven through a railroad sleeper, he was worth ^j.iWO.OOO. He impoverished himself in trving to sustain the value of his property and went under. Next, at more than fifty years of age he rose again as a financier, .\arl?er ^ler is -veari old. Beginning in the humblest way he managed to organize a mill company and worked sixteen hour* a aay for ten years to make his fortune. He was past forty when his bank accounts showed him that he could afford to take the world more easily. He is a millionaire now. ii ^'or'on ** about aixtv-three years Old Twenty-five years ago. when he was thirty-eight or thirty-nine, he founded hi* banking honse. He wa* fifty-one when hi* wealth enabled him to devote a part of his time to public life. His great stroke was made when he established hi* London house in 1868, and soon afterward went into the syndicate for fundthg the United State* debt. He was past forty-three then. John li Slawson. the car-fare box inventor, was twenty-fife years old when he went to Now Orleans in 1*40 from New York. There he slowly made his way upward. But for the war he would have pushed bis invention at forty six years of age, but he had to wait and he was past fifty when his big money began to pour in. Jav Gould's early life was a failure, but this phase of it was very short. He was born in Mttl ana went into speculating in railroad stocks in 1859, when he was twentv-eight years old. He was very successful and'made use of the war when it broke out to gain large returns on small or shrewd speculations. His fortieth year found him, in his present opinion, onlv starting in life, but the world already knew him as a master money maker, for he had been more than three years president of the Erie railroad, and his associate, Fisk. had startled America with his share of the partnership. ?Samuel J. Tildcn made his first considerable money as a lawyer; but he was more than fortv years old before he put other aspirations aside for the time and begun that devotion to his profession which was quickly distinguished bv his connection with the greatest law cause of the day. He was fortv-one when, in 1855, he was defeated as a candidate for attornev-gen eral of N w \ork. After that came his greatest legal triumphs, and after thein hi* still greater financial Operations. The Standard oil fortunes nearly all prove the rule. .Mr. Rogers made his share of that pile while younger than fortv years old, but -Messrs Rockefeller, Starbuek and Flagler were beyond that age when they grew rich Augustin Dalv is fifty-tw'o years old. He was thirty-four when he began his brave struggle with the dramatic company that is now world famous. Wealth did not reach him till he was beyond forty. The ISirtli Kate of Newspapers. From the New York Sun. The Paper World disclose* the interesting fact that the news companies receive an aver age of thirty new periodical publications every week in the year. They find not more than one out of the thirty profitable to handle, and not one in thirty is permanently successful. The great majority of the new progeny of intellect and enterprise hardly get their e'ves open be fore they die. The wonder is what they were begun for. if so soon they were to be done for. A birth rate of thirty a week seems verv high. That is, 1.560 a year, or. looking at it another way, five for every week day in the year. A new periodical is born and sent out to the news companies to nurse every four hours and forty eight minutes, day or night. How few of the interesting little creature* ever cut their eve teeth! 3 But the statistic* procured by the Paper World from the news companies by no means represent the actual rate of increase, since comparatively few of the new journals started in the L nited States find their wav to these agencies of distribution. Notwithstanding the tremendous mortality among the new born and the great number of older newspaper* which drop out of existence every year the net annual increase in the periodical"publica tions of all sorts, daily, weekiv, and monthly political and commercial, heathen and Chris tian, smart and sillv. is from 500 to 1 500 It varies much in different years. The least pro lific year since 1880 was 1882, when the net in crease whs 344. Ihe most prolific year was 1SH4. when the excess of births over deaths was 1 475. Next to that came another presi dential year. lK.-O. when the net increase was 1.020. We take these figures from Mr. Row ell s American Newspaper Directory. In fact, during the past twenty vears there ha- Oeen only one.year when there were more at ;id ducks than fledglings. The total fell from K 129 in 1876 to 7,'J5S in 1877. The truth is?and we violate no law of professional se crecy? that it is one of the easiest things in the world to start a new newspaper. ? IIow Women Run a Restaurant. From the New Tork Star. Two ladie* entered a well-known, restaurant for ladie* in this city a few day* ago.one of them wishing to entertain the other. Luncheon was ordered, and the oysters were brought swim ming in a dish as innocently as if they had never seen a shell, after the cu*tom adopted by the house of serving oysters aud eggs. The ladies proceeded to eat what thev had ordered when the waiter girl bawled ; "Sixty cents!" No attention being paid to this remark Rhe bawled out again. A second time she wa* taken no notice of, so she said: It is the rules of the bouse, ma'am to pav when you order."

And you will oblige me by not bawling out the price of what I have ordered; I have invited mv friend to lunch with me, and it does not suit me to have her informed of Just how much she is costing me." This startling harangue, and ignoring of the rules of the establishment, awed and silenced the waiter girl, and collected quite a crowd of waiter girls, who eagerly discussed *uch un heard-of independence. The two ladies ate their luncheon regardless of all comments, and when they had finished, called for the check No checks are given in the house, so the amount was stated by the girl, this time in a low tone. But she wa* not to be let off easilv "No check? Thep how can I know that I am paying the correct sum?

FROM OGRMAX SOURCES. A Late Budget of New* from Samoa Reporter Klein's Nationality. A steamer, just arrived at Ban Francisco, brings an interesting budget of Bemoan news from the Honolulu BuW-tin of the 12th Instant The paper contains a consular letter dated at Apia. January 90, to the different German con sulates, Riving the German version of reoent events in Samoa, Mataafa's men had driven nearly all the black plantation men from their land, aa well as robbing farms of pig*, poultry and horses. The letter quotes the order of Consul Knappe proclaiming a state of war. which alarmed the foreign resi dents. The searching of the Richmond's cargo was rendered necessary from the fact that on her previous trip she had imported 27.000 pounds of ammunition in barrels marked salt meat. Upon the arrest and subsequent re lease of the ship's passengers the English con sul issued a proclamation advising all British subjects in the islands that notwithstanding the German declaration of war, they were sub ject to the jurisdiction of the British authority, and enjoining them to observe strict neutrality. Ihis was dated January 20, and pleated the English residents greatlv. The next move was a written notice by Capttritze, of the Adler, the senior naval officer of the squadron, stating that, notwithstanding the proclamation of neutrality by the British con sul, he declared all British subjects in Samoa to be under martial law. and that they would be tried by court-martial if they should in any way interfere with the German authorities. This was severely criticised by the English and Americans, and called forth explanations from the Germans, who claimed it hadbeen absolutely necessary to declare war when war had been the order of the day for about a month. They said that the effects and rights arising from that declaration were the same as if a declara tion of war had been issued, and that martial law had therefore with reason been proclaimed, und all nationalities were subject to it. The English consul issued another proclamation, which bore the appearance of retracting some what his previous publication. United States Consul Blacklock then issued a proclamation, duted January 22, forbidding all Americans from taking any part in the hostile operations on either side. He declared that so long as tii. \ remained non-combatants they were entitled to personal immunity and protec tion. aud that any offense committed against them or their property was an offense against the laws of war, and should be promptly re ported to him, so that the offender or offend ers might be brought to justice. klein's nationality. The German papers assert that Klein, the American correspondent, was born at Lahr and served as a sergeant in the German army dur ing the Franco-Prussian war. and was subse quently compelled to leave Germany and went to America. Word comes from San Francisco, however, that Klein was born in Englund. his mother being an English woman and nis father a Danish professor. The family came to the United States when Klein was a child, aud he received an education thoroughly American. In the house of commons yesterday Mr.W. H. Smith, the government leader, referring to the Samoan question, said that pending the conference the government was unable to ex press any decided opinion on the subject, although he might state that Germany had strongly declared that she would not recede from any of her engagements as to the rights of Englishmen and Americans in Samoa. The U. S. S. Mouongahela sailed from Mare Island, CaL, yesterday afternoon for Samoa. WINTER RESORTS. JJOTEL MT. VERNON, ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Keopens March 1, near tlie beach.
