Serious Charges Made Against the Late President. He Hoodwinked the Directors and Run the Road for the Promotion of Private Interests. Associated Press Dispatches. . New York. Nov. 27.—Tomorrow the Tribune will print an interview with Jay Gould, in which he says Ex-Presi dent Adams of the Union Pacific i 8 a theorist, who conducted many affairs of the Union Pacific without the knowl edge of the directors. Gould said he learned when last in Kansas City, that Adams personally owned control of the stock yards there, and while the rail road was carrying in their live stock at bare cost of transfer, the stock yards earned $1,000,000 the past year. Such action as this, Gould said, would never be permitted under the new manage ment. He believed the Burlington and Rock Island will both come into the plan for securing better results from the western railway business. No further changes, he said, were to be made in the Union Pacific. Mr. Gould further said in part: "The Union Pacific has earnings of $40,000,000 a year, and its terminals are estimated by the congressional commission to be worth at least $15,000,000. I should not have gone into its management again if I had not known we had sometliing to bank on. Adams's statement about harmony during his admin istration is not wholly correct. The fact is the directors really knew vert' little about what the president was doing. There is a piece of road out in Utah, graded and ready for the rails, and although it is 150 miles long, the directors knew nothing about it. There is another piece eighty miles long in Southern Kansas, on which I believe the rails have been laid. It does not con nect anywhere with the Union Pacific system, and the directors were sur prised to know the company waa building it. These extensions, and the purchase of the Oregon Railway and Navigation company, which I think was a wise one, made a considerable floating debt, but it can easily|be handled. The addition of 4000 names to the \<ny roll is a mystery not yet explained." The change in the management of the Union Pacific insures har mony among the western railways, and the formation of a strong association on about the basis suggested by Chairman Walker. Instead of a great parapher nalia of agents and solicitors, the asso ciation will have agencies only in the large cities, and freight can be routed under direct orders of a committee chosen by the association. "A meeting of the western railroad officers will be held very soon, probably next week, but the certainty that such an association will he formed has al ready had its good effects." In regard to the general financial situation, Gould reiterated hia assertion that the most serious trouble has passed. Trust stocks, sugar, whiskey, lead, and things of that kind, produced much of the trouble, in hiß opinion. The public lost money by them, and consequently lost confidence in everything in AVall street. These stocks had some merit, but the compa nies were organized in the wrong way. New York, Nov. 27. —It is evident that the Gould-Sage party did not enjoy the farewell address of President Adams". Sage in an interview today said: "The tenor of Adams's address ia most un called for. There haa been no public criticism of his management by any of the directors, notwithstanding the fact that he was running the road to ruin. Mr. Adams says in his address that he has been president seven years, and dur ing that time the actionsof the directors have been unanimous. That ia simply saying that Adams ia responsible for the Union Pacific's condition. He should explain how it was that the pay roll in creased 4,000 names in nine months; what personal interest he had in the Kansas smelting works, in favor of which discrimination waa made in rates for shipping bullion, and half a dozen other matters." CANADIAN ENTERPRISE. Our Neighbors Reaching; Out for For eign Trade. New York, Nov. 27. —An Ottawa spe cialaaya: The Dominion government will shortly inaugurate a vigorous foreign policy, as the result of the McKinley bill. They intend to establish commer cial agencies in the Southern and Cen tral American states, to find out the prices Canadian products bring in those countries, together with the prices of products they can send to Canada. Re ports will be published monthly for the information of merchants, farmers and manufacturers. In addition, the govern ment will have regular steam communi cation with the places mentioned, and a monthly service to China, Japan and Auatralia. BXCITBD PASSENGERS.

Nkw York, Nov. 27.—The champion ship football game between Princeton and Yale, which waa conteßted in Brook lyn today, was won by Yale, 32 to 0. The game was witnessed by 25,000 per sons, who had recovered from the dc- Eression caused by the accident of a few ours before, and manifested their en thusiasm in every manner. Nearly all the different colleges in the east were represented among the coaches. Their sympathies were evenly divided. The game was a great one, but the Princeton eleven was over-matched. Their rush line seemed mere striplings compared with Yale, and frequently used bad judgment. When the first half was ended, Yale had a score of 10 and Princeton 0. When the second half be gan no one waa in doubt about the re sult, and gloom had fallen over the Princeton contingent. Their eleven seemed incapable of stopping the irre sistible rush of Yale. In thirteen minutes Yale had increased their score to 28, and thereafter only exerting them selves to shut out the Princetons, suc ceeding well, as the score tells. HAMMER AND HATCHET. The Instruments Used In Settling Do mestic Troubles. Atchison, Kan., Nov. 27. —George Weston and wife fought over domestic troubles last night.

San Francisco, Nov. 27.—The Call this morning states that complaint was filed in the United States circuit court on Wednesday, by the government of the United States, through Attorney- General Miller and Special Assistant Charles Martin, of Chicago, against the Southern Pacific company and Central Pacific railroad company, and the West ern Union telegraph company. The object of the complaint is to secure the cancellation of the lease of the Central Pacific to the Southern Pacific, and also to secure the cancellation of the lease of the Central Pacific's telegraph lines to the Western Union telegraph company. In addition to the cancellation of the leases, the complaint demands that the lines referred to, be operated and main tained separately and independently, in accordance with the original agreement between the corporations and the gov ernment. In the document, which is withheld from publication until the court can is sue the necessary processes, the entire history of the relations between the Central Pacific railroad and the government is reviewed, and it is souglit to show that tho railroad com pany has violated its pledges to the gov ernment in the matter of the leases re ferred to. It is the intention to issue the legal processes today (Friday), and in the absence of President C. P. Huntington, who is now in the east, it is said that the secretary of the Central Pacific will be cited to appear and show cause why the leases should not be annulled. Sydney Sporting Notes.

The empress of Germany is a daughter of the Duchess Adelheid of Schleswig- Holstein-Augustenburg. The latter is a singularly modest and reserved per sonage, quite averse to display and pala ver. She is in the habit of traveling about incognito, and this is incognito invariably of the strictest kind. Recently she went to Vienna, and, as the Comtesse de Wolfersdorf, hired apart in a bourgeoise partof the city. The land lord treated her as he might have treated any other elderly lady, whose only visitors were her physician and a few solemn-looking friends. One day, how ever, this landlord was stricken nearly aghast when the emperor of Germany, who happened to be visiting Vienna, whirled up in front of the modest man sion and inquired after the Comtesse de Woldersdorf. Afterthis imposing visitor had departed, the landlord scuttled up to his lodger's apartments. "Do you know, Mme. la Comtesse, 1 ' he inquired breathlessly, "who your caller is? Why, it was the emperor of Germany." "Of course," answered the old lady, quietly, "he happens to be my son-in law." The sister of this estimable woman is the wife of Dr. Esmarch, an eminent Burgeon, who is very chummy with the kaiser. It seems rather curious, (doesn't it) that theempetorof Germany should have for an uncle a professor of Kiel university!—[Corr. Chicago News. The Progressive Party's Primaries. The Australian ballot system plan of holding primary election, tried by the Young Men's Progressive party yester day, was a success.

FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 28, 1890. THE IRISH CAUSE. Balfour Introduces His New Land Bill. An Amendment by Labouchere Rejected. Parnell and Part of His Party Vote With the Government. Gladstone and Morley Do Not Vote at All. Late Allies of Parnell Snub Him. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 27.—1n the common*, today, Spencer asked the government, in view of the recent financial crisis, to introduce a bill to amend the bank act by providing for the issue of £1 notes. Balfour introduced an Irish land bill. He said the government's policy was the same as in 1889, but for simplicity the bill had been cut in half. Both por tions, however, were practically the same as the bill of 1889. One variation of the present bill from that of last year, was that it met in some degree Parnell's views in regard to the privilege of purchase. It excluded all purely grazing farms and farms whose tenants did not reside on them. The limit of twenty years to purchase, objected to last session, had been re moved. In regard to increasing the power of the local authorities, Balfour said it would be absurd to leave to communities under the incitement of agitators, to deter? mine whether they should remedy it By going to the root of agrarian discontent. If they were to give local control in any form, it ought to be by a plebiscite of rate-payers, enabling them under the safeguards of the ballot, to vote upon the question of granting a contingent portion of the guarantee fund for each county. Labouchere moved an amendment against pledging the imperial credit fdr the purchase of land, until the country should have given its consent at a gen eral election. Rejected. Gladstone, Harcourt and Morley walked out before the vote was taken. Parnell and the Parnellite members voted with the government. The bill was then given its final read ing, among the cheers of the govern ment supporters. When the Parnellites were flocking into the division lobby to vote on La bouchere's amendment, there was a sud den movement,apparently instigated by Healy, who, with Sexton and a number of others, turned back and abstained from voting, while Parnell, Powers and thirty others supported the government. After the house rose, a hurried meet ing of the Nationalists was called in the conference room. Parnell was not pres ent, and great secrecy was observed as to what was done. WILL SUSTAIN HIM. Feeling More Favorable Among the Na tionalists Toward Parnell. London, Nov. 27.—Timothy Healy«flnd Parnell had a conference today. The feeling among the Nat ionalist members is more favorable toward Parnell than yesterday, and the opinion prevails that they will sustain him. Healy is very reticent and refuses to say anything about the Irish leaders' in tentions. Parnell appears to be in buoyant spirits and splendid health. A noticeable incident occurred in the commons today, when Parnell went to vote on Labouchere's amendment. Par nell had to pass the Liberal benches, and his late allies studiously ignored him. It is stated that if Parnell remains in the leadership, Sexton and other Irish members will offer themselves for re election in order to test the feelings of the electors. The Press Association says Parnell considers he has been unfairly treated by some of his colleagues, who practically owe their position to him. He also feels strongly about Gladstone's attitude, and is more determined than ever to remain. If Monday's meeting opposes him, he will appeal to the Irish people. Labouchere has written Parnell urg ing him to withdraw. Earl Spencer, in a speech tonight, while eulogizing Parnell's work, said the opinion of the Liberals is clearly against Parnell's continuance as the leader. If he did not retire, the Irish cause would be rolled back, and it would be a mighty misfortune to both Ireland and the em pire. The News again appeals to Parnell to accept Lord Spencer's calm advice, and not give his followers the painful duty oi rejecting him. One of Parnell's closest personal friends declares that Parnell regards the movement to expel him as a radical re venge for his support of the royal grants last summer, and that he will resist to the last this attempt to destroy the in dependence of the Irish party, and make them a mere appendage to the Liberal party. It is understood that at Monday's meeting of the Parnellite members, a resolution will be adopted recognizing Parnell's great services, but calling upon him to resign the leadership. Dublin, Nov. 27.—The Freeman's Journal says Parnell will issue a mani festo to the Irish people, and mean while asks them to suspend judgment. STORMS IN EUROPE. A Regular Blizzard Sweeping Over the Continent. London, Nov. 27.—Severe frost and heavy snow prevails throughout Kurope. In Paris the snow is several inches deep. Many railroad lines in Austria and South ern Russia have partially suspended op erations because of snowblockades. A heavy snowstorm is raging in the channel. A large steamer is ashore at Folkestone. Carlsbad, Nov. 27. —The damage by the floods is enormous. Hundreds of sheep-keepers are ruined. Hundreds of thousands oi dollars will be ri go red for public repairs alone. A terrific ?torni is raging on tire Baltic sta. DISASTER AVERTED. Thf U.B.S. Alert's Narrow Escape from Total Destruction. San Francisco, Nov. 27.—The Chron icle says the United States steamer Alert, which is under orders to relieve the Swatora on the China station, and has been at Mare Island several months undergoing repairs, was to have sailed December 3d, and everything was in readiness. On Monday last, as a final preparation, she was taken to the dry dock to have her bottom scraped and painted. The workmen had hardly commenced operations when they heard a rumbling noise overhead. An" inves tigation showed that about twenty square feet of iron boiler sup" . porters, which form an in terior or second bottom, had fallen in amidship. The heavy iron beams were found to have corroded away, aud the heavy boilers were resting on the ship's bottom. The Alert, although an old ship, was regarded as a stauuch ves sel. A large force was at once put to work making repairs, and are working night and day to get the ship in readi ness to sail December 10th. Had the supports of the boilers held out nntil the vessel was at sea and given away there, the heavy boilers would probably have fallen clean through, leaving the vessel not only without steam power, but with a hole in her bottom so large that she would have immediately sunk.

The Frenoh Customs Laws Bar Importa tions of the Lymph Because of Its Secret Properties. Burlin, Nov. 27.—The Post publishes a statement by Dr. Danelius, a colleague of Dr. Levy, in which he admits that 500 marks was asked and paid for a single injection of Koch's lymph. The nioney was paid to Doctors Carnet and Dengel. Koch haa declined a further supply either to Levy or Dencel. Pakis, Nov. 27.—The French govern ment will not allow the importation into France of Koch'a lymph. The refuaal of the customs officials on the frontier to admit the lymph sent Pasteur by Koch was based on the ground that the importation if medicines, the composi tion of which is not known, is illegal, the law prohibiting such imports being in existence. FRENCH FINANCES- The Largest Public Debt In the World, But has Good Credit. Paris, Nov. 27. —The budget commit tee report on the financial condition of France, shows that the debt of the country is 30,300,813.594 francs nominal capital, and 22,824,043,609 francs actual capital. The nominal rate of interest is 3.48 per cent., and the actual rate 4.62 per cent. This, continues the report, ia the largest public debt in the world, but the French credit is sufficiently solid to allow French stocks to be reckoned as 3 per cent. The commercial tribunal has ordered the Bank of Eddetat to go into liquida tion. Deputy Raynaud, managing director, has absconded, and it is re ported, suicided. He is reported to have gambled heavily in storks and offered 20 per cent, interest on deposits. The bank's liabilities are 400,000 francs.

Desertions from the Hostile Camp Continue. The Craze Spreading in Indian Territory and Oklahoma, But No Danger Is Apprehended. Associated Press Dispatches. St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 27.—At the headquarters of the department of Da kota, no news of the reported battle with the Indians near Fort Keogh was received this morning, and it is not thought that there is any truth in the report. Lieutenant Woodruff stated to an Associated Press reporter that the Cheyenne Indians near Fort Keogh were all friendly, and have asked permission to fight the Sioux in case the latter go on the war path. Most of the Cheyenne Indians in the neighborhood of the fort have enlisted in the service of the gov ernment. He says if there had been a fight the department would have been advised before this. Chicago, Nov. 27.—General Miles was this morning shown the report say ing that a fight had occurred yesterday between United States troops and In dians, near Fort Keogh, Mon tana. He said he did not think there was a word of truth in it. He has received no official news whatever of the reported conflict. A dispatch received by the Associated Press this evening, from General Mana ger Mellen of the Northern Pacific rail road, said the report from Missoula, Montana, of fighting between Indians and soldiers, was absolutely without foundation. The Trouble Subsiding. General Miles this evening said to day's advices from General Brooke were of a very satisfactory nature. He con firms the report that Chief Little Wound came into Pine Ridge agency yesterday, and says every hour seems to lessen the strength of the disaffected Indians. Short Bull, of Rosebud agency, has also come in, and his people, numbering nearly 2500, are reported as following. The general considers Short Bull one of the worst and most treacherous In dians in the northwest. The general 1 " ~~ IU W*** 1 IV I THIS TURKEY WAS NOT IN IT.
