BLOODY BALFOUR.
A Fresh Outrage ou the
Irish Race.
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.
Council Bluffs, la., Sept. 18. —A
heavy rain storm, accompanied by
severe lightning, visited this section
this afternoon. Many cellars were
flooded and great damage done. Several
buildings were struck by lightning and
three persons severely hurt.
Dcs Moines, lowa, Sept 18.—The Reg
ister's Atlantic, lowa, special says a

BAY CITY BRIEFS.
Charles Meyer Killed at the New City
Hall.
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

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 committee on shipping reported
strongly in favor of the Frye and Far

ranges from $50 to $250. McAuliffe will
fight at 200 pounds, twenty-four pounds
lighter than when he fought Jackson,

before. Slavin has been boasting that
he will quickly knock out his opponent,

San Francisco boy. The amount that
will change hands on the lesult
will exceed $1,000,000. The resorts
are crowded with sports from all
the principal cities, as well as

tion says tonight's meeting of Slavin
and McAuliffe will be purely a formal
affair for the purpose of making ar

Precinct Hoards to Consist of Three

San Francisco, Sept. 18. —In March

bers, and the election board should
consist of two inspectors and two judges,
to be selected from opposite political
parties,and that precinct registration offi
cers should not aerve on election boarda.
The Republican county committee took
the position that a precinct registration
board should consist of four persons to
be selected from opposite political par
ties, equally, and they therefore brought
a writ of mandamus to compel the com
missioners to appoint four members in
stead of three, in an opinion filed to
day, written by Justice McFarland and
concurred in "by Justices Patterson,

TAKING A NEW TURN
World's Fair Commissioners
Reconsider.
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. Finally the matter

was laid over till the committee on titles
reported.
A resolution waa passed calling upon
the local directory for an immediate re
port as to what extent the consent of the
authorities having jurisdiction over the
lake front and Jackson park sites had
been obtained, the cost of preparing
both places, and out of what fund they
proposed to pay this toat.
The Chicago local directors held a
meeting tonight until after midnight.
The result waa the endorsement of
George R. Davis, of Chicago, for direc
tor general. In answer to an
inquiry aa to the proposed
divisions of exhibits the directory
submitted a rough draft, showing
the art hall and some kindred exhibit,
on the lake front, and the agricultural
mining and other displays at Jackson
park. The directors estimate that it
will cost a million and a half to prepare
tne proposed lake front site, and a mil
lion and three quarters to prepare the
Jackson park. The ten millions guaran
teed ia not to be touched for site prepar
ation, that amount being reserved for
the construction of the buildings.
UTAH'S EXHIBIT.
The Mormon Territory Intends to Be
Eclipsed by None.
Chicago, Sept. 18. —P. H. Lannan, of
I Salt Lake City, world's fair commia
! sioner from Utah, has applied to the
j committee on aite for ten acrea of ground
i for Utah's display. He says all of it
! will be utilized, and no state or territory
i will make a more interesting or varied
display. They propose a main build
ing to consist of minerals, a palace
conatructed wholly of Utah mineral and
building material. Inßide of a central
j court, one hundred feet aquare, will be a
series of galleries. The floor of the
j court will be an exact reproduction of
i the surface of Utah —mountains, lakes,
! cities, streams, railways and everything
I reproduced on a proper scale.
The faur wings will contain
I the mineral, agricultural, manufacturing
j and art exhibits. The walls of the gal
leries will be decorated with paintings of
| Utah scenery, birds-eye views of cities,
| historical and prominent buildings.
! Models of mills and mines will be con
| structed, and a prominent feature will
!be an ingeniously contrived imitation
of the great Ontario ailver mine.
; Free concerts and other entertainments
I will be given by various organizations of
! Salt Lake City while the exposition
: lasts. The grounds will be laid off in
| the highest art of landscape gardening,
j and irrigated in such a manner as to
I show Utah irrigation and its auperior-
I ity over all other systems of irri
gation. All the agricultural pro
ducts and vegetables known to
Utah, from silk and cotton to sugar
and corn, will be cultivated. One of
the moat unique features will be a re
production about an acre in size of
