A very interesting feature of the cam paign in Virginia is the fact that President Harrison was one of the leaders in the move to Harmonize the Mahone and the anti-Ma-hone factions. The Democrats seem to re alize the power of the new combination, and while talking little but doing a great deal of thinking, they don't hesitate to ad mit that they think a protection or Randall Democrat mnst be nominated for Governor. Congressman Brower enunciates bis plat form of principles. He insists on the adop tion ot the internal revenue system, no mat ter by whom accomplished, and is confident he holds the balance of power. ISr-ECUI. TELEGUtM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 "Washington, July 22. As more de tails are learned here about the compromise between the Virginia factions it is evident that the plan adopted was dictated by Sena tor Quay and Mr. Clarkson, of the Republi can National Committee. The call that was adopted is neither the JIahone call cor the Brady call. Mahone was forced to accept the compromise which is involved in the new plan as the condition of recognition by the administration and of co-operation by the administration in the State campaign this fall. The anti-Mahone men hod" very strong supporters on the National Committee, and the compromise was really dictated by them and the President The President consulted with the members of the Republi can National Committee at every point in the proceeding, and is unquestionably as much A Forty to the Entire Deliberation as if he had been present at the two nearly all-night sessions during which tbe subject was considered. Harmony, as illustrated by appointments to office, is to be carried t till further than it has been. General Brady, the leading anti Mahone man, has already been rewarded by the appointment of Collector of Internal Revenue in the Norfolk district. This is an office worth 55,000 to 56,000 a year. It i controls, also, a very considerable part of the Federal patronage of the State. The ' collector has the appointment of SO deputies. The amount of tax to be collected annually exceeds $1,000,000. This patronage is to be used to promote the good of the party. How Lnncston Is to be Fixed. Prof. Langston, who has been very inimical to Mahone, and who claims that JIahone prevented his election to Congress, and who even intimated that he would accept the independent nomination for Gov ernor of the State, is, it is learned, to be placated by an equitable share of patronage in this internal revenue election district. He is relied upon to support the compromise. Another important appointment is to be that of John S. "Wise, ex-Congressman, son of ex-Governor Wise, one of the best known of tbe young orators of the South, to be postmaster of Richmond, Va. Mr. "Wise has within a comparatively short time re moved to New York and opened a law office there. It was supposed that he would have sothing more to do with the politics of his native State, but it is said that he is on tbe siLte for postmaster of Richmond and will accept the appointment One Way to Bar? tbe Hatchet. Jlr. "Wise is credited with the statement bat the only way in which the Virginia Re publicans bury the hatchet is to bury it in each other. It remains to be seen whether he will accept the Mahone-Brady-CIarkson-Quay omnrtmise, and become a Federal officeholder and an earnest supporter of JIa hone as a candidate for Governor, if the lat ter shall be nominated. The Republican leaders of Virginia insist that the Democrats will be likely to nomi nate a Randall Democrat as a candidate for Governor, in order to prevent the disaffec tion from the Democratic ticket in the min ing regions in the southwestern part of the Mate. Jlr. "William Venable is mentioned as oneot the men likely to be recommended for the nomination. He is a Randall Dem ocrat, a strong protectionist, and a very wealthy man, who would rely upon the lib eral contribution that the tobacco manufac turers of the State would be likely To Make to becare His Election if nominated. How the small majority of Randall Democrats in the State of Virginia expect to secure control of the nominating machinery in the State Convention is not clear. The election in Virginia this fall is an im portant one. It involves not only the elec tion of Governor and the control of the State administration, bnt the election as well of 21 members of the Legislature, who will be hold-overs in the Legislature that will elect the next United States Senator to succeed John "W. Daniel. JIahone is a candidate for the Senate. He will devote all his energies to be restored to his old position. He will endeavor to sec to it that these 21 hold-over members of the Legislature shall be Republicans and JIahone men. It ia not yet certain that JIahone will get HARRISON AND II , 7 ; "A l the Republican nomination for Governor. The compromise is not so harmonious that he will be nominated without a contest He will dietate the terms, however, and will either be nominated himself or say who shall be nominated. The Democrats Not Saylne Macb. "Virginia Democrats are not saying much at present," said United States Senator John S. Barbour to-day, "but they are thinking a great deal, and will be found wide awake when the votes are counted. "When the question is presented to the white people of Virginia whether the State shall be turned over to JIahone and his followers there is never but one response nowadays, and that is an emphatie negative. The taxpaying people of Virginia have not forgotten the reign of JIahoneism, and their memory is so, keen on that point that they do not wish to return to it. It is too early to outline the issue on which the campaign will be waged, but I presume General JIahone will attempt to thrust the industrial issue upon us, or, in other words, the high protective tariff issue. Now, it should be understood that Virginia Democrats are not and never were in favor of free trade. They are in favor of tariff reform. Not nn Issne Jmt at Present. "I do not think the State's debt question will cut any figure in the campaign this year; but whatever the issues presented by the opposition may be, the Democrats will be prepared to meet them squarely. "We do not propose that General JIahone shall make the pace for us, by any means. The campaign on our part will be aggressive from start to finish. In 1881 and 1883 JIahone had Governor, Legislature, Su preme Court of Appeals, two United States Senators in fact, everything that was out The world knows how the JIahone dynasty used its power; the people of Virginia know only too well. "We have gradually wrested everything irom tbe JIahoneites, in spite of tbe -fact that they had control of what is known as the machine. Now we have it, and we expect to hold it The Eigld Discipline of a Soldier. "JIahone still issues his orders as if he was at the head of his division in Lee's army. His discipline is of the most rigid character. He carries everything on his own shoulders. I do not underrate his or ganizing capacity. He generally foots the bills for the State conventions, which he calls, pays for the hall, and pays the board of the negro delegates while the convention lasts. A JIahone convention, frequently misnamed a Republican State Convention, is worth something to the curiosity-seeker. The negro delegates generally comprise the major portion of the convention. They do cot put up at hotels, but are quartered in squads of half a dozen or more at some pri vate house owned by a negro. A member of tbe squad does the cooking, if any is re quired, Usually, however, very little cook ing is done, as corn bread and a cud of tea or coffee and some whisky suffices. 'Hott BInbone. Work is Don. "Much has been said about Mahone's or ganization in Virginia. As a matter of fact, he has no organization in the sense known to Northern politicians. His work is done mainly through colored preachers, who proclaim from the pulpit Mahone's wishes, and who exhort their flocks to go to the polls and vote the straight. Republican ticket, from A to Izzard. "I do not know how much of a figure Langston will cut in the impending canvass. He hates JIahone enough to give him trouble if opportunity offers. Langston is able and shrewd, bnt it is probable that if he is found to be formidable in his opposi tion to JIahone, tbe administration will try to buy him off with some good office. I do not think JIahone cares to be elected Gover nor of Virginia. Jly opinion is he would like to decline the nomination, and it is quite probable that it will be given him. Plenty of Good Men In the Field. "I cannot name the Democratic nominee for Governor. Several good men are in the field, any of which can be elected this year, I think. "Whoever is nominated, whether it will be an ardent tariff reformer, like O'Ferrall, or some man of more conserva tive views, the candidate will stand square ly on the platform indorsed by the conven tion. "The campaign must from necessity be of mote than local interest, from the fact that the Republican National Committee in tends to give the Republican party in Vir finia financial support and the aid of its est speakers. The administration will throw its influence in favor of Mahone, and every effort will be made to place the State permanently in the Republican column, but we are not frightened. The State is naturally Democratic. Pour-fifths of the white voters are with us, or against Mahone, and the apathv that existed during the Cleveland administration, and which came so near causing us to lose the State, has vanished." TOO STBONG A GEESHAM MAX. One Indiana Editor Whom the President Dared to Turn Down. rSrXCIAI, TXXECBJLK TO TUX DISPATCn.l Washington, July 22. Colonel Hol loway, of the Indianapolis Nevis, started home to-day, one of the most disgusted of all the Republicans who haven't got an office. He is about the only editor heard of who has been "turned down." His first ef fort was for chief of the Government Print ing office. He failed to get that, and the contest huing on for so long that iu the meantime Indiana had got more than her. full quota of persons in office. This didn't daunt tbe Colonel, however, as he thought Indiana, and especially Indiana editors, -had unlimited claims on the administration He put in a bid for Superintendent of Foreign Mails. Knocked out of that, he asked for the very comfortable post of Sup erintendent of the Dead Letter Office. It is said tbe President at last told him bluntly that he did not dare "to appoint any more Indianians to office. Now Holloway's friends claim that it is cot because of the number of Hoosiers in office, but because he was an enthusiastic supporter of Gresham instead of Harrison, which is the cause of his failure; and many express tbe opinion that if he was so strong a-Gresham man, while living in the same city with Harrison, it would have been good taste for him to refrain from pressing his claims fo- anything. A BIG SDH MISSING. 'Nearly Half a Million Dollars Mysteriously Disappears. rsrxciAx. tilxobam to thb msrATcn.i "Washington July 22. For several days there have been hints of the myster ious disappearance of the sum of 5468,000 paid by tbe Government to representatives of the Creek Nation as first payment for the lands which they ceded to the United States, and which are now a part of Okla homa. To-day National Treasurer Moore, of the Creek Government, and Raley Mc intosh laid before Secretary Noble all the facts in their possession, which are that General Pleasant Porter, ex-Chief of the Creeks, and two other men were about two months ago authorized by tbe Creek Na tional Council to come to Washington and draw the money doe them from the Govern ment The money was drawn, but has me $m$im& m$pmin. never been carried into the Creek treasury. Then the Secretary of the Interior and the Attorney General had a conference about the matter and decided to send a special at torney to the Indian Territory, with author ity to recover the money if possible, and to prosecute criminally the derelict persons. Ex-Congressman Zack Taylor, of Memphis, is likely to be sent on this errand. Porter and his companions are said'to be in the Creek country, explaining the disap pearance of the funds by saying that it cost them 5468,000 to ret the bill of purchase through Congress." When the bill appro priating 51,700,000 for the purchase of the lands was pending in Congress Secretary Vilas was informed that ex-Governor Craw ford, of Kansas, a claim and land agent, had a contract with the Creeks by which he was to get 10 per cent of the purchase money for his services. Vilas sent for the Creek Commissioners and Crawford and com pelled them to write a compact declaring that no commissions whatever were to be paid. Now not only the 10 per cent com mission but the entire principal has disap peared. BKOWELPLATEOEM. North Carolina's Candidate for Speaker De clares His Principles Absolute Aboli tion of the Internal Revenue Sys tem nis War Crj, ISFXCXIL TXLIQBAM TO TOX DISPATCH. I Washington, July 22. Congressman Brower has arrived in Washington to push his contest for the Speakership of the next House. He said to-day: "Yes, I am an in dependent candidate for Speaker, and I am going to be elected. I have assurances of enough support to give me the balance of power in the House. My friends and I will go into no caucus, neither the Republican nor the Democratic We shall be a party by ourselves, and a party with principles. I take my stand on the abolition of the in ternal revenue system. TfTat is an outrage upon a free people, a war tax that must be removed. My platform is that I will not go with any party that refuses to pledge itself to abolition of the internal tax as tbe first step to be taken in tariff reform. On this question I have the support of The People of the South, irrespective of party. Jly colleague, Mr. Ewart, like myself from a mountain dis trict, can please his people in no better way than by abandoning party for this tax re form. Why, for a dozen years the Demo crats have been promising the people of my State that as soon as they obtained power they would abolish the spy tax system. The Republicans have told the people that the Democrats were making false pretenses, and that their only hope of "riddance of the ob noxious system of taxation lay in the Re publican party. In the present condition of party politics I see little hope from either the Republicans or the Democrats, and my plan of campaign is to lift aloft the banner of absolute abolition of the, internal reve nue, and to Rally Around the Standard a small band of devoted, determined men. There are 17 Republican Representatives from the South and the border States, and one-half of these, by standing together, can compel the Republicans to agree to abolish the internal revenue, or turn the organiza tion of the House over to the Democrats." Jlr. Brower says his people are tired of playing the patient role; that they have been patient these many years, and the revenue spies have not been taken away. Now they are going to see what courage and audacity will do. Brower is not afraid to go clear over to the Democrats, for if by so doing he can succeed in abolishing the internal rev enue, his people will triumphantly re-elect mm as aDyinuepenaent That Brower has some independence and nerve he has already shown. He Toted for the Mills BUI in the last Congress, and on Washington's Birthday introduced a bill granting amnesty to all citizens who have been convicted ot offenses against the revenue laws. Brower himself has had trouble with the Govern ment about collection of the revenue from his distilleries, and knows what it is to eet into the clutches of the Federal law. A prominent Tennessee Republican says it is understood that Judge Houk and the other Republican Congressmen from Ten nessee will join the revolt against Harrison, and seek to control the organization of the House. For some inscrutable reason Sena tor Harris, a Democrat, has had more in fluence in the appointments made in Ten nessee than the trio of Republican Congress men from that State. They Will Come Terr Hlch. Probably the Administration, under the advice of Quay and Clarkson, will now go to work to buy off these disaffected South erners, and bribe them, if possible, into loy alty to the regular caucus, just as an effort is Being made to bribe the anti.Jlahoneites of Vifginia into submission to tbe boss which the Administration has set up in that State. The prediction is freely made here that if the Administration does succeed in buying oft the independent Congressmen, it will have to pay a very large price. TREATED AS A EAEE JOKE. The Propaganda at Ilomo Ixiajchs at the Idea of an American Pope. ISFZCIAL TELZOEAM TO TUX DISrATCH.1 New Yobk, July 22. Bishop JIcQuaid, of the diocese of Rochester, returned from Rome on the Normandie, to-day. He has been paying his usual decennial visit to the Pope, and secured a decision, the tenor of which has already been published, in the case of Father L. A. Lambert, whose bitter attacks on the Bishop to the. Pope have caused much comment in Catholic circles. The offending priest is first to publish his act of submission to the Bishop, retract all the attacks he has made, the Bishop to pro vide him with a suitable place, his return to Waterloo being barred. The Bishop has re ceived notification that Father Lambert had on the 19th instant signified his willingness to submit Bishop JIcQuaid was cot prepared to say what berth he had in store for the offending clergyman. The Bishop said that the Pope had taken no cognizance of tbe troubles in the Clan-na-Gael. Years ago he had con demned the Fenians. '"The Clan-na-Gael, the United Brotherhood, once tbe Irish Re publican Brotherhood, is substantially the same sort of organization, said the Bishop. "The oath they take has been condemned by the Catholic Church." Bishop JIcQuaid said the talk about an American Pope as the successor of Pope Leo, was treated as a rare joke among the Cardinals at Rome and in the propaganda. A PECULIAR DEATH.

CATTLE QUEEN KATE Ends Her Notorious Career at the End of a Cowboy's Strong Lariat. LYNCHED WITH HEE PARTNER. The Postmaster at Sweetwater Accompanies Her on Her Last Journey. SHE DIES CUBSIN6 HEE EXECUTIONEES. Their Bold Thieving Brousht to an Abrnpt End by Angry Cattlemen. Kate Maxwell, the notorious cattle queen, was lynched by cowboys Sunday night from the same limb of a tree as James Averill, the Postmaster at Sweetwater, Wyoming Territory, and a partner of the female cattle thief. The tragic death of the Cattle Queen was a fitting climax to her adventurous life. She died cursing her executioners. I SPECIAL TXLXGBAX TO THE DISPATCH. Cheyenne, Wto., July 22. James Averill and the notorious cattle queen, Kate JIaxwpll, were lynched by cowboys last nicht The bodies of the "Bustler" and range queen dangled from the same limb of a big cottonwooa, tnis morning. J-ne scene of the lawless but justifiable deed of the midnight riders is on the Sweetwater river, in Carbon county, near Independence Rock, a landmark made historical during the rush overland to the California gold fields. Averill was 'postmaster at Sweetwater. Kate Maxwell was the heroine of a sensa tional story which appeared in the news papers throughout the country three months ago, when she raided a'gambling house and recovered a large sum of money won from her employes. Stockmen of the Sweetwater regiou have been the victims of cattle thieves for years. On account of prejudice, it has been impos sible to convict on this charge, and the rustlers have become very bold. A PAIR OF ACTIVE THIEVES. Averill and his remarkable partner have been very active in thieving. The woman could hold her own on the range, riding like a demon, shooting on the (lightest pre text, and handling the lariat and branding iron with the skill of the most expert vaquero. ) Fifty freshly-branded yearling steers were counted in the Averill and Maxwell herds, Saturday morning. A stock de tective, whose suspicions were aroused, was driven from this place when he was noticed viewing the stolen property. This circum stance was reported to the ranchmen, who determined to rid the country of the desper ate pair. Averill and the woman have several times been ordered to emigrate or cease ap propriating mavericks, but had disregarded all warnings. After her celebrated gamb ling bouse escapade, Mrs. Maxwell degener ated from a picturesque Western character into a reckless' prairie virago of loose morals, and lost most of her following, but continued partnership with the postmaster. taken at a disadvantage. Word was passed along the river, and IS to 20 men gathered at a designated place and galloped to the cabin of AverUland Cattle Kate without unnecessary noise. The rustlers were at home, and a peep through a window disclosed the thieves and a boy in their empty cabin, sitting beside a rude fireplace smoking cigarettes. As half a dozen men rushed into the room a Win chester was poked through each window, and a command came to throw up their hands with unmistakable earnest The trio sprang for their weapons, but were quickly overpowered. Averill begged and whined, protesting his innocence. Kate cursed. Her execration of the lynchers was something terrible in its way. She cursed everything and everybody, challenging the deity to harm her if he possessed the power. An attempt was made to gag her, but her struggling was so violent that this was, abandoned. She called for her own horse to ride to the tree selected tor a scaffold, and vaulted astride the animal's back from the ground. BOPES ABOUND TIIEIE NECKS. Averill did not resist, and the boy, who had been told that he would not be harmed, followed. Either end of the same tope was fastened about the necks of the rustlers as they sat in their saddles. The boy made a pass with a knile at the man who was pre paring Kate for hanging. He was knocked insensible by a blow with the butt of a re volver. The lad was a nephew of the bandit queen. When preparations for the execution had been completed, Averill and the woman were asked to speak. The man spoke only of his office, saying that he did not wish a certain man to be his successor. He was promised the influence of the party for an other candidate, Kate made quite an ad dress. She wished the affair kept as quiet as possible, desiring that her mother be kept in ignorance of her disgraceful career and tragic death. It was USELESS TO DENT that their herd had been stolen from the ranchmen of that 'section, but if they did not wish to divide it among themselves, she would like to have it sold and the money given to a home for wayward girls. Kate bade her nephew good-by and com menced to deliver a blasphemous harangue. The horses were led from under the pair while Kate was still cursing. Both kicked in lively style for 10 or 15 minutes. A lew bullets were fired into Averill's body, and the lynchers rode away. It is doubtful if an inquest will beheld, and the executioners have no fear of being punished. Tbe cattle men have been forced to this, and more hangings will follow un less there is less thieving. CATTLE THIETES LYNCHED. Chey Are Captured by the Sheriff and Strang Vp by Cowboys. Albuquerque, N. JI., July 22. Last Saturday three Mexican cattle and horse thieves were captured by Sheriff Charles Lowens and posse and imprisoned in a vacant house near Kelly, N. M. Before the capture the thieves, three in number, engaged the posse in battle, during which their leader and Deputy Lowens were shot dead. Last night a party of cowboys proceeded to the house where the remaining two thieves were imprisoned, overpowered the guards, and hanged the prisoners, after riddling their bodies with bullets.

Boatmen Use Their Fleets for Battering Unms to Knock Down the Pan- handle's Falsework That Blocked the River Highway. rsrxcuxTxi.xaRAM to thb dxsfatcit.1 Steubenvtlle, July 22. As has been predicted for tbe past week the Panhandle jRailroad Company and the steamboat men collided this morning. The railroad com pany recently received permission from the Secretary of War to close up, the channel of the river at Steubenville bridge for the purpose of replacing the channel span. No sooner was this announced than loud protests went up from the river men who have had an unparalleled season on account of high water in the Ohio. The railroad folks began driving piles a week ago for the falsework, and as the work proceeded .the river men became more active in their opposition. They appealed in vain to tlje Secretary of War to have the permit re yoked, and tbe railroad to compromise the situation agreed to dredge out a new chan nel. The rise in the Monongahela brought ont the coal fleets from Pittsburg.and when the boats arrived at the bridge this morn ing they found the channel almost entirely filled with heavy piles arranged in bents. There was a short consultation and then without advising the men at work in the channel of their intention, the eoalboat Ad vance with three large barges abreast, eame at full speed upon the pile bents, breaking down about 25 of them, breaking the pile driver barge loose from its moorings and badly damaging it The men on the barge had a narrow escape from being drawn under the tow and the work was imme diately suspended. Hardly had they time to recover from their escape, when another boat, the Pacific, came down by the same route and took awar 33 more of the piles, leaving over half the channel clear for the following boats. Immediately after thli the railroad company ordered the construction of a large apron pier above the bridge which will effectually block the channel for boats. Both railroad and steamboat men are equally determined to enforce their rights in the premises, and the outcome will create intense interest along the Ohio and among the river men generally, as the serious trouble threatened will demand the inter ference ot the Government to settle whether the railroad has the right to impede river navigation that its own trains may run un interruptedly. THE HEB0INB OF THE DAT. The WKe of a Newsdealer Saves the Life of n Deaf New York Broker. ISPKCIAL TELIGEAM TO TUX DISPXTCI1.1 Nyack, N. Y.. Jnly 22. Mrs. D. F. Meissner, the wife of a newsdealer, is a heroine here to-day. She saved a man this morning from being crushed beneath the wheels of a locomotive on the Northern Railroad of New Jersey. O. M. Bogert, a well-known New York broker, is spending the summer at this place. This morning, just about the time for the early freight train up was due at South Nyack, Mr. Bo gert, who is quite deaf, walked across the railroad track to look at something on the opposite side. The approaching train was at that time near the station, and persons standing by remarked that Mr. Bogert had just got over in time, when, to their horror, he turned back t recross the track, his deafness preventing him hearing the engine. The engineer blew wildly, but the gentle man did not hear the alarm, and several Ti-firss standing near were horror., stricken. Suddenly Mrs. Meissner, who was deliver ing papers in that vicinity, gave a shriek and dashed bravely in front of the iron horse. Catching Mr. Bogert quickly by the coat collar, she pulled him with light ning speed from the track, just in time to save him from being struck by the engine and probably crushed undet the heavy wheels. TWO OHIO CONYICTS ESCAPE. Bold Break far Freedom From thV Peniten tiary at Columbus. isrrcux. txlxgbui to tbk disfatcili Columbus, July 22. Two convictsin the Ohio Penitentiary, John Hill and Jo seph Davis, made their escape this morning about 3 o'clock. They were employed as night nurses in the hospital, and cut a hole through the hospital kitchen roof, and ran from this roof to a point where the roof of the State tobacco room came to within a few feet of the ground, where they jumped without injury. The wall was climbed by means ot the stockade, and the prisoners used a rope made of long bandages to let them down from the high wall to freedom. Their long absence in the kitchen aroused the suspicion of the guard, and when he went to look for them all he could see was the tell-tale hole in the roof. The alarm was given and a vigorous search instituted, but the men mnst have gone into hiding at once. It was daylight when they left, or nearly so. and no trace of them has yet been found. Hill was serving a three rears' term, beginning March last, for pocket-picking, and Davis was a United States prisoner, sent up from Barnesville December 13, 1888, on a five years' sentence for robbing the postoffice there. A HUBDEBOUS NEGEO E0BBEE. Special Officer Henry Call Fatally Stabbed Almost a Lynching-. Kansas City, July 22. A special po lice officer, Henry Call, janitor of the Ben ton school, arrested Lee White, a negro thief, this morning in the act of carrying off a sack full of stolen property. He started with his prisoner for the St Louis avenue station. Arriving at the door the negro drew a long dirk knife from his pocket and thrust it twice up to the hilt into his cap tor's breast He then attempted to escape, but was arrested by an officer, who hap pened to be passing. The occurrence hap pened in the vicinity of the packing house, just at the hour when hundreds of laborers were going to work. Hearing of the attempted murder they gathered in crowds around the jail, and planned to lyncn tne prisoner. Anticipat ing their purpose, Captain Flabine took the man to the Central station, where he is safely guarded. Henry Call, the victim, is mortally wounded, and the physicians say he cannot survive the night .

Luke Dillon, the member of the Clan-na-Gael executive who is helping the police of Chicago to run down the Cronin murderers, was in this city to-day. The object of his visit was to make a last effort to get the entire Executive Com mittee of the Clan-na-Gael in session, to de cide upon the time and place "for calling a convention of the order. It resulted as hare all the others only four committee men met An effort was made to learn the views of prominent members of the Clan-na-Gael as to holding the convention. It was said to-night that the convention would be held. It will not be attended by the Sullivan faction, and it is said an effort will be made to remodel the entire organization. Another mission of Dillon was to secure the presence of John L. Sullivan at the picnio of the Philadelphia Clan-na-Gael, bnt he was not successful ia this; either. AUSTKALIMK.

Kansas City carpenters are satis fied with nine hours' pay for a day of nine hours. Chicago, July 22. A charter was granted by the Executive Committee of the Knights.of Labor this morning to the first district assembly of the order ever organ ized in Australia. The new.district is com posed of five local assemblies, with a total membership of over 500, all of whom have joined the order within tbe past rear. Ac companying the application for a charter was a request for Mr. Powderly to go to Australia and head the labor movement there, all of his expenses to be defrayed by the Australian branch of the order. It is not likely that Mr. Powderly will be able to accept the invitation for some time, be cause of urgent business requiring his per sonal attention in this country, but some 'member of the board will probably be sent to Australia during the coming winter. No session of the Knights of Labor Board was held in the alternoon, the members separating as usual to visit different locali ties. Master Workman Powderly was en gaged in several localities in private con sultation with different individuals. Jlessrs. Devlin and Hayes risited the Seaman's Union. FOWDKBIiY APPBOVED. The members of the board are not wholly satisfied with the reports of the Sunday evening meeting at the Bricklayers Hall. "This meeting," said John Devlin, of the board, "was called by our board for the pur pose of explaining all points concerning which there might be some question. As soon as the meeting was called to order and it was found that none but members were present, Mr. Powderly exclaimed the pur pose in calling the meeting, and said that he was prepared to answer all questions about either his own or the action of the board. He asked that if such explanation did not give complete satisfaction that those dissatisfied so express themselves. He spoke on a score of things and to each there waa unanimous approval." Mr. Devlin also told him Mr. Powderly explained to the meeting his famous order instructing the strikers of 1886 to return to work or forfeit their charters, and how it was all the result of Barry's failure to carry out the instructions of the General Assem bly. Mr. Powderly told the meeting that it was the General Assembly in session at that time in Richmond, Va., that moved first in the matter. A delegation from the strikers ajked the Assembly to ct for-them, end, in response to the request, Barry was sent to Chicago to adjust matters if possible, '!but under no circumstances to bring the order into the matter." DECEIVED BY BABBT. "Barry went to Chicago," he said, "and In two weeks came to Philadelphia, where the board was in session, and told us every thing was satisfactorily adjusted. Two weeks later the board, having adjourned and separated, he telegraphed to me at Scranton that the men were again out. I was away irom nome ana aia not get tne message un til a week later. Then, as that was all the information I had, and as Barry, the dele gate of the assembly, had formally reported to us that the matter had been adjusted, I had to draw only one conclusion, that was that the men had broken faith with tbe packers. Believing this I ordered them to work. Afterwards I learned that Barry had not arranged matters permanentlv and that the men cad only returned to work two weeks. We were deceived by bis report that everything was adjusted. With what Information I had if I had the thing to do over again I think I should do as I did." NINE HOUES A DAY. It Is Conceded In Kansas City to Union and Non-Union Carpenters, Who Make a Joint Demand Only Nine Hoars' Pay. , Kansas Cut, Mo., July 22, Between GOO and 800 carpenters struck to-day for a nine-hour working day, instead of a 10, and 11 hour day. No advance of wages was demanded. The strike was cot ordered by any labor organization, but was the result of a conference held last Saturday between the union and non-union carpenters. At the meeting they were all ot one mind that their working day was too long, and that they would refuse to go to work on Monday unless the bosses should reduce tbe number of hours to nine. The contractors and bosses had no intima tion that the carpenters would make such a demand, and were taken completely by sur prise when their men reported for duty this morning. They refused to grant the de mand until they had considered it in a meeting, which they expected to hold at noon. At that hour about 20 of tbe princi pal contractors decided to yield to the de mand, provided the strikers would work nine hours at wages proportionate to their hours. This action was reported to a meet ing of the strikers at 3 o'clock this after noon. It was acceptable, and those who had been employed by those contractors who made the report determined to go to work again to-morrow. There were about ten contractors not present at the contractors meeting, but the majority of them have de cided to grant the demand. A few stub born ones refuse to yield, and they are con fident of finding plenty of men willing to work ten hours. Their" refusal to yield af fects about 150 men. TEIING TO EQUALIZE WAGES. Low-Priced Leather Workers Want to Be come as High Priced as Others. I Philadelphia, July 22.

The plan of organization of the tenant movement against the oppressive landlords is given out It is designed to beat Balfour, who will not dare to suppress something that has long been legal in England. CBT CABLE TO THX DISPATCH, London-, July 22. The Irish Parliment ary Party held a meeting to-day, at which the new Tenants Defense League was for mally constituted. Following are the rules and regulations as approved by Sir Charles Bussell and other eminent lawyers: Tbe Irish Tenants Defense League is founded, to assert and maintain the right of the tenant farmers of Ireland, now attacked or threatened by aggressive combinations'of J rish landlords to protect their legal and equitable inter est In their holdings by defensive combinations among themselves. The ob ject of the league is to counteract by legal means all combinations of landlords used to exact excessive rents,- to extort unjust arrears, or to impose inequitable terms of pur chase, or to stimulate eviction or in any way to destroy or imperil the security of tenants in their holdings. In order to effect this purpose, tenants throughout Ireland are invited to con tribute to the tenants' defense fund in fixed proportion to the poor law valuation holdings. Tenants on any one or more estates combining to assist the League, and subscribing to the tenants' defense fund, will be entitled to tba help of the League in case of need. BRANCHES OP THE LEAGUE will not be formed, but each body of tenants combining to sustain tbe League will appoint at a meeting held annually for that purpose, treasurers to collect and remit their contribu tions, and secretaries to communicate with tho council of the League whenever occasion may arise; and such treasurers and secretaries shall be recognized by council and by the League ia ' tbe transaction of all affairs in which Interest of sneb tenants is directly concerned. In the event of an emergency the council of tho League may rote the collection of a special levy from the associated tenants. Such levy not to exceed the amount of the annual con tribution. The League will exert Itself to inform tho public, especially in Great Britain. ottbe pro ceedings and aims of combinations of land lords in Ireland, and will devoteparticular care to contested bye elections. The League will afford legal advice to tenants in connection with any proceedings constitnted or threatened by or at instance of any combination of land lords or by any landlord who ls'engaged or con cerned in such combination, and. in the event of the eviction of any such tenants from their holdings as a result of such proceedings, tba League, to the full extent of iu power, will afford them sbelter and support provided the council Is satisfied such are willing, and refer to arbitration the questions iu dispute between them and tbeir landlords. AFFAIRS OP THE LEAGUE stall be directed by a council of 15 members, elected annually from tbeir own body by mem bers of tbe League, the first council to be elected within a month from the formation of tbe League. The admission to membership of the League shall bo determined bytbe Council. Tbe subscription of members shall be any sum not less than 1 per annum. Donors of sums of 10 and upwards will be eligible for election, by the council as honorary members of the League. The meetings of the League will be held from time to time as summoned by the council. Tbe council will make 'and publish, from time to time, such further rules and snch alterations In the constitution of the League as it may deem to be expedient In England there could be absolutely no question as to the legal of this pro gramme, and it is believed even Balfour's lawyers will be unable to bring it within the meshes of the law, although they will try very hard to do so. The most novel feature of the new league is the absence of branches, an omission deliberately made with a view to increase Balfour's difficulty should he ever attempt to grapple with the League. The rule as to honorary member ship was inserted to meet tbe desires of many English friends who desire to identify themselves with and give financial support to the new movement OPPOSING E0TAL GEANTS. Labouchere Gives a Hit oa Boyal Economy A Solid Liberal Front. London, July 22. Mr. Labouchere, in the debate in the House of Commons to-day on the grant to Princess Louise on the oc casion ot her marriage to the Earl of Fife, moved the rejection of the report of the com mittee and to substitute therefor an ad dress to the Queen, reciting among other things that the sums already voted by Par liament to the royal family should be am ply sufficient for all their proper purposes, and that if further supplies are needed they ought to be supplied through retrenchment of the expenses of the royal family, not by fresh demands upon the taxpayers. It is expected that the debate on tbe royal grants question will be tbe keenest party struggle of the session. Tbe refusal of the Government to accede to the proposal of Mr. Gladstone to deprive the Queen of the right to make further demands upon Parliament led Mr. Morley and other Liberals in the committee to vote against increasing the al lowance of the Price of Wales. The differ ences among the Liberal groups on this question have been arranged and a solid op position, supported by some Liberal Unionists, will confront the Government It is not likely that Mr. Gladstone will take a prominent part in the debate. BOULANGEB BATED MONET. He Had Extraordlnarr Expense, but Spent Less Than Tulbandln. Pabis, July 22. With reference to the charges against General Boulanger of mis appropriating public funds, M.
