NAUGHTY PARNELL.
His Cohabitation With His
Friend's Wife.
The Famous O'Shea Divorce Suit
On Trial.
Sensational Evidence Submitted by
the Plaintiff.
The Defendants Allow the Case to Go
by Default and Parnell Must
Pay the Costs.
Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Nov. 15.—The trial of the
O'Sheadivorce case was opened before a
special jury this morning. Parnell, the
co-respondent, was not represented by
counsel. O'Shea was the only prominent
figure present.
Coward briefly opened the case for the
petitioner. Ke said, as he understood
the case, the respondent denied that she
committed adultery, as did also the co
respondent. The respondent further
alleged that the petitioner connived at
her adultery, and wilfully separated him
self from her.
Lockwood, counsel for Mrs. O'Shea,
stated that he did not intend to cross
examine any of the witnesses in behalf
of Mrs. O'Shea, nor take any part in the
proceedinge.
Clarke, of the counsel for Captain
O'Sha, said Lockwood's announcement
seriously altered the position, now that
neither Parnell nor Mrs, O'Shea would
take part in the case. It was
therefore undefended. That con
tinuous acts of adultery had
been committed by the respondent and
co-respondent, would be placed beyond
doubt. A witness would prove that
while the respondent was visiting in
Bedford square she was visited by Par
nell, who went under the name of
Smith. At another house he visited her
as Stewart. On one occasion he had
escaped by the balcony to avoid O'Shea.
The respondent and Parnell were actu
ally together at Eastbourne and Brock
ley. Parnell could not face the evi
dence. He allowed judgment to go by
default, because he dared not go into
the witness box. He did not wonder at
Parnell's refusal to answer the charges
of faithlessness and falsehood, and be
trayal of the friendship of a man who
trusted him. O'Shea stood for parlia
ment in 1880. He was then introduced
to Parnell, who dined with him and
Mrs. O'Shea, Mrs. Steele being one of
the party. Nothing excited O'Shea's
suspicion until 1881, when Parnell vis
ited the respondent. His annoyance
over Parnell's approaches to his wife led
O'Shea to send a challenge. Mrs. Steele
saw Parnell, who assured her that there
was no ground for jealous suspicions.
5! The petition for divorce, he said, was
filed in December last. Parnell then
put in a simple denial. Mrs. O'Shea
made a denial, and counter charges
against her husband, alleging that he
had committed adultery with a number
of persons, including her own sister,
Mrs. Steele. She also charged him with
cruelty and having connived at her adul
tery for a series of years. Her plea al
most amounted to a confession of adul
tery. The husband would be able abso
lutely to disprove everything possible
suggested against him. He could show
that the charge of connivance was
groundless; that when O'Shea first
heard of the intimacy, he challcaged
Parnell to a duel, which was averted
through Mrs. Steele. Afterwards the af
fectionate relations between O'Shea and
his wife were continued. Parnell was
again invited to Eltham in 1882. After
Parnell was released from Kilmain
ham jail he renewed his visits to
Eltham; he almost habitually slept
there. Parnell used to drive from
parliament to Eltham and Mrs. O'Shea
would go down stairs to meet him.
O'Shea wrote his wife, remonstrating
against the visits. Furious scenes oc
curred between them. On one occasion
he found a portmanteau belonging to
Parnell at his house; he carried it off,
throwing it out of the 1 railroad station.
Continuing his speech, Sir Edward
Clarke described all the places and the
different hours where Parnell and Mrs.
O'Shea had met, and the various stories
about them. He said O'Shea wrote his
wife concerning these stories, and re
ceived a specific denial. For nineteen
weeks, in 1886, they occupied a house
together in St. John's road, Eastbourne.
Later they occupied another house in
Eastbourne. This occurred before No
vember, 1886, after the respondent's
promise to her husband that a new
course would be adopted. Later a gen
tleman, calling himself Fox, went to the
office of a house agent and engaged a
house on Trevillon street, Brockley. He
afterwards changed his name to Pres
ton. This man was Parnell. Mrs.
O'Shea frequently called herself the sis
ter of the occupant. The next house
was taken by Mrs. O'Shea in Regent's
park, she giving as references Mr. Pres
ton, of Brockley, and Mr. Parnell, "two
gentlemen in one," said Sir Edward.
These facts proved that the pair con
cealed their intimacy to the last, and
cleared O'Shea of the charge of conniv
ance. Respondent and Parnell used this
house together from 1887 until 1880.
All this, said Sir Edwin, would be
proved in the evidence, and would
liberate Captain O'Shea from a marriage
that he now looked upon as a shameless
bondage.
Captain O'Shea was then called to the
stand. His testimony was corroborative
in detail of the points touched upon by
Sir Edward Clarke in his opening ad
dress. He said, among other things,
that while he was a candidate for Gal
way, he heard statements about Parnell
and Mrs. O'Shea. He remonstrated
with his wife, but she said her acquaint
ance with Parnell was for political pur
poses. She told him she knew Parnell
had been secretly married. When para
graphs appeared in the papers about
Parnell's visits to Eltham, O'Shea wrote
to his wife expressing annoyance at the
circumstance. There was talk shout
taking criminal proceedings against the
newHpapers, but, us it. was- thought it
would only ariake the scandal worse, the
idea wan abandonee!. Afterward be saw
a paragraph to the effect that
Parnell had been staying at East
bourne with Mrs. O'Shea and
wrote her. Some time after,
his (O'Shea's) son showed him a para
graph stating that Parnell had been at
BUI hem. Plaintiff showed this para
graph to Parnell, who seemed much an
noyed. On April 15, 1887, plaintiff Baw
his wife and had a long and painful in
terview with her, showing her son's
letter.
The letter referred to was read by
counsel. It communicated matters rel
ative to the visit of Parnell to Mrs.
O'Shea. The son said he had heard the
voice of that awful scoundrel, Parnell,
and should like to have knocked him
down, but did not wish to upset his
mother, who told him that Parnell had
only come to dinner.
The letter continues: "Perhaps 1
ought to have kicked him. You, how
ever, know more about these things
than I do. But if you wish me to kick
him, it shall be done on the lirst oppor
tunity."
There was no cross-examination of
O'Shea.
Photos of Parnell and Mrs. O'Shea
were placed in evidence, and Harriett
Bull, formerly in the service of Mrs.
Dawson of Brighton, was called. She
remembered Mrs. O'Shea. Some five
or six years ago, Captain O'Shea came
there, as did also another gentleman,
whom she identified by photo as Par
nell. He would come every day, and at
all times. When he came the children
would go out, and no one be in the house
but he and Mrs. O'Shea. They would
be together for hours. He once slept in
the house when O'Shea was not there.
She recollected on one occasion going to
Mrs. O'Shea's bedroom to speak to her.
She heard voices, tried the door and
found it locked.
Caroline Pethers, a widow, residing in
Cheltenham, rented a house in the lat
ter part of 1883 to Captain and Mrs.
O'Shea. Two or three days after the
family arrived a gentleman appeared
whom she identified as Parnell. He
went by the name of Charles Stewart.
He and Mrs. O'Shea were in the dining
room for several hours on one
occasion with the door locked.
They were in other rooms with
the doors locked. They used to drive out
in the night. Parnell "slept frequently at
the house when O'Shea was not there.
He was in the drawing-room at one
time with Mrs. O'Shea, "with the door
locked, when Captain O'Shea rang the
front-door bell. Parnell escaped from
the house, went to the front door, rang
the bell, and asked to see Captain
O'Shea. He did not escape by the stairs.
There was a balcony outside the window,
and two rope fire escapes in the house.
[Laughter. I
Witness saw Mrs. O'Shea once go up
stairs, pull down the blind and enter
Parnell's bedroom. Mrs. O'Shea used
to carry hot water to Parnell's bedroom.
The court here adjourned the case
uutil Monday.
The refusal of Mrs. O'Shea to make
an.v defense, and failure of Parnell to
appear in court to refute the charges,
have caused an immense sensation. The
utter collapse of the defense is tanta
mount to an acknowledgment of their
guilt, and will result in Parnell being
condemned to pay the cost of the di
vorce proceedings.
BROUGHT TO A CLIMAX.
THE DIFFICULTY ABOUT THE
"WORLD'S FAIR EXHIBIT HALLS.
The Unconditional Use of 'Washington
Park Demanded, or the Whole Ques
tion of Site Will Be Again Opened.
Chfcaoo, Nov. 15.—The executive
committee of the World's fair national
commission today took a decided pre
liminary action in the matter of the ap
portionating of the various exhibit halls
among the parks constituting the site.
Uncertainty as to the extent to which
Washington nark would be used, has
for some time past constituted one of
the main difficulties, involving in
directly the lake front problem.
The several schemes for Washington
park have been objected to by the South
park commissioners, as involving a too
great defacement of the existing land
scape. Yielding to their objections
would necessarily mean a diminished
use of Washington park, and the in
creased importance of the lake front and
Jackson park.
This afternoon the subject was
brought to a climax at the meeting of
tUe executive committee, which after a
lengthy debate, adopted a resolution
insisting that the local directory obtain
from the South park commission before
the meeting of the national commission
on the 18th inst., consent for the uncon
ditional use of Washington park.
Unless such action is taken the ex
ecutive committee will feel constrained
to'recommend to the commission the ab
rogation of the resolutions adopting the
various sites heretofore tendered.
The classification committee of the
national commission were in session to
day, closing up their work. The depart
ments, as laid out by Commissioner De
Young of California, which had been par
tially changed, were restored to their or
iginal shape, and ratified finally by the
committee, as the final recommendation
of the main classification.
The committee expects to have most
of the sub-classification finished when
the commission meets.
In Honor of Keddiok.
Mokelumne Hill, Cal., Nov. 15.—A
great demonstration was held here to
night in honor of John B. Reddick,
lieutenant governor-elect. The town

ated. There was a torchlight procession
over half a mile long, with barges and
transparencies. Fireworks were dis
played all along the line. Delegations
were present from all over Calaveras
and Amador counties. An open air
meeting followed the parade. Mr. Ked
dick was introduced amid great cheer
ing. A number of speeches were made,
and the demonstrations closed with a
grand ball.

MURDER WILL OUT.
The Ivett Mystery Will Be
Cleared Away.
A Plain Case Against August
Olsen.
The Old Man Was Evidently Slain
By His Brother-in-Law.
Circumstances All Point that Way, and
His Arrest is Liable at
Any Hour.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Merced, Nov. 15. —The criminal por
tion of the Ivett affair is being held back
for the time being, and the ground work
is being laid for a contest before the
courts for the administration of the es
tate. The pond near Ivett's house is
much lower than yesterday, but not
enough water has been discharged to
show the bottom in any place. A detec
tive from San Francisco, who has been
working up the case, unbosomed himself
today, as follows:
"In any other place but this, I would
have sworn out a complaint and had my
man in jail long ago, but I find
that I must proceed differently here.
I have seen the bloody overalls and
shoes worn by Olsen on the night of the
murder. I have seen awful gashes in
Ivett's head made with a hammer that,
beyond all d übt, I have heard Olsen
admit that '..e had carried around with
him for several days just previous to the
tragedy ; a hammer which, from his own
description, would make just BUCh a
mark as the head of Ivett shows, and he
cannot make any sort of explana
tion as to the whereabouts of
the hammer. I have -measured
the bloody footprints, and compared
them with his. I have seen that the
feet of his unshod horse tally exactly
with those at the gate. And, in spite of
the fact that every scintilla of evidence
obtained points directly toward August
Olsen as the murderer, I am advised not
to make any arrest, but to wait a
while."
Sheriff AVarfield is biding his time,
and it is said that Olsen's arrest may be
announced at any time.

Murder or Suicide.
Martinez, Cal.. Nov. 15.—0n Friday
the town of Clayton was disturbed by
the startling intelligence that James
Pavagnero and wife, residents of that
place, had been discovered dead in bed.

at the scene, found evidence
of a brutal murder to justify
him in notifying the sheriff

New Yokk, Nov. 15. —A Quebec special
asserts that Laurier, the opposition
leader, is in possession of proofs of a

cant, and that he will spring them at
the next session of parliament.
It is alleged that boodle was paid
Thos. McGreery, M.P., by contractors for
the Quebec and Esquimau docks, for
information from the public works de
partment, of which his bosom friend,
Sir Hector Langevin, is minister. It is
said the friends of the government are
urging the ministers to dissolve parlia
ment before Laurier can present and
jprove his charges. Unless it is done,

HOLDS SUPREME SWAY.
PROF. KOCH THE LION OF THE
HOUR IN THE FATHERLAND.
Intense Interest Taken in His Discovery
at Home and Abroad—French Physi
cians Alone Are Skeptical.
Berlin, Nov. 15.—[Coprighted (1890)
by the New York Associated Presß.]
Prof. Koch holds supreme sway over
public interest. The publication of his
statement at home and abroad has in
tensified the excitement, and messages
are pouring in from all parts of Europe
and America. Many medical men, in
cluding English and American physi
cians, have been studying the process
under the aids of Prof. Koch. Interest
ing reports of progress of treatment in
many cases continue to be made. To
meet the pressure, another hospital is
about to be established.
The secret of the composition of the
lymph has been communicated to Koch's
intimate colleagues ; also to Prof. Weig
artof Frankfort, Dr.Rast of the Hamburg
hospital, and Prof. Nothnagel, of the
Vienna university. Nothnagel, in ad
dressing his students on the matter,
said the discovery has a far wider scope
than Jenner's discovery of vaccination,
and is perhaps the grandest feat in the
history of medical science.
Prof. Billroth holds that Koch's
method places it beyond a doubt that a
remedy will be found before long for
cancer. The only criticisms on Koch's
discovery come from French medical
men, some of whom advise incredulity
until the nature of the remedy is fully
known, and scientific proof given of its
effectiveness.
Religious Instruction In Germany.
The leading feature of the primary
education bill of the government con
cerns v religious instruction. The bill
provides that every child shall be edu
cated in its own creed, and that classes
in religious knowledge shall be con
ducted by the respective religious
bodies, representatives of such bodies in
each community being authorized to
preside over the classes. Classes for in
struction in the evangelical and catholic
creeds will be intrusted to the parish
pastor or priest.
Arch Duke John's Will.
The will of the Arch Duke John, of
Austria, has been opened in Vienna.
He leaves everything to Milly Stubel,
his morganatic wife. The will will be
contested as invalid under the Austrian

Socialists Beaten.
The Socialists were badly beaten in
several communal elections the past

valued at £24,000,000. 'f he government
has authorized the Bank of England, if
necessary, to issue an additional £2,000,
--000 in notes, and will suspend the bank
act if requisite. The original cause of
the firm's trouble was Russia's with
drawal of several millions deposits on
learning of the firm's dealings in Argen

that incoming investors will gradually
relieve the strain in the market.

Redondo, November 9th. —The citizens of this place
were thrown into a state of great excitemenit>this afternoon
by the strangest catch ever known in these waters. The
angler, a well-known resident, was armed with a bamboo
rod of only ordinary size. He had waited in vain for a bite
for nearly half an hour when he felt, at the end of his line,
a fish evidently endowed with enormous strength. The
battle which ensued has probably never been paralleled in
piscatorial annals. It attracted two-thirds of the popula
tion of the village, so rapidly was the exciting news circu
lated. The beholders could scarcely believe their eyes
when, as the finny monster was drawn out of the water, its
side was found to be adorned with the business card of the
LONDON CLOTHING CO., whose bargains are now
attracting almost as much attention as the fish itself will
receive from anglers all over the country.
