Dillon and O'Brien Placed Under Arrest. Warrants for Other Nationalist Leaders Issued. An Evident Purpose to Knock the Prisoners' Proposed American Trip in the Head. Associated Tress Dispatches. 1 Dublin, Sept. 18. —Jolin Dillon waa arrested this morning, at his residence, near this city, and conveyed on a special train to Tipperary, accompanied by a large military escort. William O'Brien was arrested at GlengarifT and taken to Cork. Warrants have been issued for the arrest of Sheehy and Condon, mem bers of the Commons, Patrick O'Brien and Rev. David Humphreys, of Tippe rary. The charges on which Dillon was was arrested, are conspiracy and incit ing tenants on Smith Barry's estate not to pay rents. Thejirrest of William O'Brien was made at the Glengariff hotel. The charges against O'Brien are similar to those on which Dillon was arrested. O'Brien was immediately carried to Dublin. In addition to those already mention ed, it is ascertained that a warrant has been issued for a man named Dalton, who has been active in the work of the land league. Here in Dublin the police are keeping a strict watch over the headquarters of the land league. Dispatches from Tip perary report that the organizers of the local branch of the league there are un der close police surveillance. This leads to the belief that the authorities are contemplating further arrests. The Irish Nationalists had no suspicion of the impending blow, and are at a loss to know what it portends. Mingled sur prise and indignation are the predomi nant feelings. Dispatches from various parts of Ireland indicate that the Nationalists are everywhere excited over the arrests. O'Brien and wife arrived at Tipperary tonight. They were enthusiastically cheered during their passage through the town. In court the prosecutor asked that O'Brien be remanded until Thursday in £1,000 bail. Thiswasdone. The'police inspector denied on examination that the mission to America had anything to do with the arrests. Dillon was also received by a large'crowd, and after giving bail, addressed the people from the steps of his house. The warrant mentioned the offenses as occurring be tween March and September. A con stable served a warrant on Sheehy, but did not arrest him. PROFOUND SURPRISE. All England Excited Over the Irish Arrests. London, Sept. 18. The one topic in London today is tlie news from Ireland. The general feeling of profound surprise is that the government had kept its secret so well. No hint of the intended action had reached the public. No explanation of the reasons for the government's course is vouchsafed. On all sides doubts are freely expressed as to the political wisdom displayed, but it is too early to predict the elfect on the peo>ple of Eng land. The Parnellites, while greatly surprised, were not cast down. Their theory of the arrests at this juncture is that the government tried to prevent the departure of Dillon and O'Brien to America, because they feared the effect of the speeches of the Irish orators in America would be to create a fresh out burst of American sympathy with Irish home rule, which would be of great moral help to the liberal cause, cham pioned by Gladstone. Up to this evening no definite in formation had reached here of the spe cific utterances of Dillon and O'Brien for which they were arrested. It is sup posed, however, that tbe ostensible grounds for O'Brien's arrest are the speech he made last Sunday at Schull. Speaking of the failure of the potato crop and the gloomy outlook, he said the tenants should meet and con sult as to what proportion of rent, they could pay, and abide by the de cision. If the tenant would absolute ly refuse to pay a penny of rent until every family that tilled the soil was placed beyond the reach of starvation, then if the government evicted the starving people, it would be swept out of ■existence by a torrent of English indig nation, and the whole civilized world would send money and assistance, .Michael Davitt takes a hopeful view of the situation, and says the effect will be favorable to the cause. Balfour, he said, has never made a greater mistake. British Press Opinion. London, Sept. 18.—Referring to the Irish arrests the Times says the only surprise is that the arrests were so long delayed. , The Standard says the prosecution has nothing to do with the speeches de livered elsewhere than in Tipperary. The Daily News says Balfour has com mitted an act of stupendous folly for which it is difficult to assign a rational motive. The Chronicle says Balfour probably intended to avert disorder it Ireland. The Telegraph justifies the arre3t on the ground that the Parneilites are be coming more daring in the face of the supposed supineness of the government. Harrington's Theory. Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 18.—President Fitzgerald of the Irish National league received a cablegram today from Tim othy Harrington, informing him of the arrest of Dillon and O'Brien. Harring ton added: "It was evidently to prevent their visit to America and exhaust our resources." Storing In lowa.

San Francisco, Sept. 18.--Charles Meyer, of the well known firm of Meyer & Simms, riggers and stevedores, was instantly killed at the new city hall this afternoon. The firm had a con tract for raising the girders employed in the construction of the northeast wing, and Meyer was acting as superintend ent while raising a 300 ton girder. The rope broke, and Meyer was struck by the boom of the derrick, crushing in his skull and chest. He was 40 years of age, and leaves a wife and fonr children. * Eugene McCabe, the goo of a feather dealer, was arrested this morning for assault to murder. McCabe waa in a drunken condition, and William White, a barber, tried to induce him to go home. McCabe objected, and drawing a pocket knife, stabbed him in the ab domen, inflicting a bad wound. George Ingalls, a fireman in the em ploy of the California electric works, narrowly escaped being killed this morn ing. He was climbing to the roof of the Concordia club building, when a piece of scantling gave way, and he fell a dis tance of about thirty-five feet to the sidewalk. He was removed to the re ceiving hospital. He had his left knee broken and his face severely cut. The opening exercises of the Mechan ics' fair took place in the Baldwin theatre this afternoon. President David Kerr made.an address; George H.Max well de _.£d an oration, and a lengthy literary programme was rendered. The exhibition at the pavilion opened to night. Treasurer ,I. P. Dockery, of the joint committee of Native Sons, was busy all today disbursing funds raised for the recent celebration. The largest sum paid out was $2,075 lor fireworks, and the total payments amounted to nearly $15,000. THE WHEAT SURPLUS. A Serious Shortage of Tonnage Tor the Export Trade. San Francisco, Sept. 18.—A promi nent grain broker, in discussing the outlook this morning, said, in reference to wheat surplus and tonnage supply : "Starting with 050,000 tons of wheat for export on the first of June, consisting of 250,000 tons of old crop, and 700,000 tons of new crop, we had on hand on the loth of September (after allowing for imports from Oregon) remaining in the state for export, 820,000 tons. Against this we had in sight on the 13th of Sep tember, tonnage amounting to 308,000 register tons, capable of carrying, say 508,000 short tons. This shows we have yet to have directed this way in the next two months, a further carrying capacity of 312,000 short tons, to have sufficient tonnage to enable the exportation this season of the balance of our wheat on hand for shipment. It is probable that considerable wheat will come down from Oregon this season, which of coarse, will shorten the tonnage supply on the above figures for our own wheat. This shortage is going to be a serious thing, and will possibly cause a continuance ol' the depression in the wheat market. COAST COMMERCE. General Gihlion Heads a Paper Before the Board. Sa.s- Francisco, Sept. 18.—The Pacific Coast Board of Commerce today adopted the report of the credentials committee, admitting to membership organizations from Aberdeen, Walla Walla and Oregon City. General Gibbon, commanding the department of the Pacific, read a lengthy paper on coaet defenses, in which he took the ground that though the chances for war nowadays are slight, no premium should be olfered for for eign men of war to come into our hat bors, and propose the alternative of taking away millions of our gold, or bat tering our cities about our ears. The committee recommended that a thousand copies of Estee's address on reciprocity, yesterday, be printed for distribution.

The Double Site Is No Longer Wanted. The Local Commission Will be Asked to Offer Washington Park. George R. Davis, of Chicago, Selected for Director-General—Utah's Pro posed Exhibit. Associated Press Dispatches.l Chicago, Sept. 18.—From today's action of the national world's fair com missioners, and from a can vass of the commission, it can be stated that the majority of that body is finally and irrevocably opposed to Jthe double site for the world's fair, and that on Saturday next a resolution will be offered and adopted, requesting the Chicago directory to ten der Washington Park (or what is gener ally known as South park). In case this is refused, the commission will report to Washington that no adequate site has been offered. There are indications of a change in sentiment in regard to the director-gen eraikhip, and from indications tonight, the local directory will select one man as probably George R. Davie, is thought the national commission will elect a man of their own, with the title of commissioner- general, and will place him in charge of all foreign and inter-atate exhibits in conftection with the fah\ This will, of course, curtail the powers of the di rector-general. Today's meeting of the commission was an exciting one. Soon after the body was called to order a resolutiou was offered by Mercer, of Wyoming, which had already been agreed upon in caucus. It sets forth that the act of congress provided for the tender of "an adequate site," and whereas a resolu tion adopted by the commission at ita first session, implies that it adopted two sites, resolved, that the former action be reconsidered and the Chicago directors called upon for a site adequate and in one compact body. Mercer, McDonald (California),Sewall (New Jersey), St. Clair (Virginia) Martindale (Indiana) and others spoke in favor of the resolution, and their comments on the action of Chicago so far, were scathing.
