On the Contrary It Seems to Be Just the Thing. Mrs. Parnell to Open a Social and Political Salon in London. Having Squared Himself Socially the Ex-Irish Leader Expects to Ue 'Speedily Reinstated In His Old Position. Associated Press Dispatches. London, June 26.—Parnell, during an interview at Brighton, today, upon his marriage to Mrs. O'Shea, said he found it impossible to procure a marriage license for any country church, and in order to prevent delay he thought it best to have tbe ceremony performed at the registry office at Steyning. Parnell added that a church ceremony would be celebrated in London as soon as he and Mrs. Parnell were able to put ih a fort night's residence there. This would probably be after the elections at Car low for a successor in parliament to the late O'Gorman Mahone. Parnell intends in the future to de vote special attention to the Irish indus trial question, in which he is more in terested than any other at present. Recently he has given general support to Balfour's Irish land bill, believing it is a well-conceived measure, and that it will greatly benefit Irish tenants and land-owners. Parnell said he intends, if possible, to visit the United States during the com ing autumn, being of the opinion that the .sentiment of the Irislijand Irish-Ameri cans on the other side is in his favor. He will try to attend the Irish conven tion to be held in Baltimore. When asked what he thought would be the political effect of his marriage, he said he has not given that question a thought, and did not intend to think of it. He was now experiencing greater happiness than ever previously during the entire course of his life. The reporter with whom Parnell had this interview adds that he never saw Parnell in a more healthy condition or in better spirits. FAKNELL'S Fl 11 XX. H« Expects to Profit Politically and Socially by Hit Marriage. London, June 26.—[Copyright, 181)1, by the New York Associated Press.] — Mr. and Mrs. Parnell entertained some friends yesterday evening at Walsinghara Terrace, and leceived today several inti mates. Parnell has sent greetings to several of nif> intimates in the cominous, expressing pleasure that the prolonged period of suspelnse is over, und thanking them for their steadfast friendship dur ing his troubles. He writes under the apparent conviction that his marriage will ouable him to he reinstated as the Irish leader. A strong impression in the same direction prevails in the commons, in spite of the knowledge of the fact that the Catholic clergy will not accept the marriuge as condon ing his offense. The Knglish Liberals are ready to hail him as a man doing his beet for bis fault. No immediate restoration of confi dence between Parnell and the leaders is probable, nor is it probable that the fac tion feud will end without the long op position of some of his now irreconcila ble enemies; but his marriage has de prived his foes of one of their most po tent weapons of attack. His moral position is assured ; his political restora tion, it is generally believed, becomes a matter of time. The future plans of Mr." and Mrs. Parnell indicate that it is their inten tion to enlarge their social life. Mrs. Parnell talks of leaving Brighton and taking a large house in London. If she wins her probate suit she will be rich and able to entertain. Those knowing her best say she aims to form a politi cal aud artistic salon, to create which she has capacities equal to her ambi tion, It has long been known that she has been a valuable political ally of Parnell, with whom she has discussed every turn of affairs more intimately than the members of bis party. It can be predicted with certainty that under her open guidance, Parnell will imme diately modify his tactics. In his fight with the MoCarthyites, reconciliation will be the watchword. The first con test (Carlow) will be fought on the Par nellite side with greater attention to personal amenities. McCarthy has practically withdrawn from the leadership of his party, his physicians warning him to avoid ex AFFAIRS IN CHILE. The Revolution Makes No Progress—The Rebel Army Dissatisfied.

Denver, June 26. —A dispatch from Albuquerque, N. M..says: The alarm ing reports sent out concerning the In dian trouble on the Navajo reservation are more sensational than the facts war rant. One of the paymasters located here says the Indians this season in dulged in a snake dance. A few white settlers near the reservation, un aquainted witli the habits of the Navajos, became timid and made exaggerated reports. Several troopß of cavalry are on the ground, but no trouble is anticipated. There is some difficulty with the Moqui branch of the Pueblos, living near the Navajo reserva tion. They object to the United States authorities taking their children and sending them to school in the cast, and some of the young bucks are indulging in the war dance—kind of a bluff—but the troops at the reservation can easily handle them.

The People Want an Abundance of the Rascal Counters—Trade Dollar Bullion to Be Converted Into Standard Dollars. Subsidiary Coinage. Washington, June 26. —The trade dol lar bullion which is to be coined into silver standard dollars is stored in the mints at Philadelphia and New Orleans. It results from the melting into bars of trade dollars redeemed at their face value under the act of March 3, 1887. The total number redeemed was 7,689,036, a portion of which have already been coined into subsidiary coin. The act of March 3,1891, provided, however, that the balance should be coined into standard dollars only. The amount stored at Philadelphia is 1,305, --325 fine ounces, and the amount at New Orleans 3,038,879 fine ounces. This will mats in all about $5,148,281 in aiandard silver dollars, a net profit above its cost of ft little over $600,000. A large amount of subsidary silver and mint coins will also have to be re coined at Philadelphia during the same period. The demand for dimes contin ues unabated, and most of the recoin age for the present will be of that de nomination, although 25 cent pieces may also be coined at San Francisco. The coinage of dimes during the past three years lias been $3,176,471. It is proposed to distribute this recoinage between the mints at San Francisco, Philadelphia and New Orleans. By law, the coinage of 1-cent and 5-cent pieces is confined to the mint at Philadelphia. This coinage has been very heavy for several years past. Dur ing the last three years the coinage of 5-cent pieces amounted to $2,093,161, and the coinage of 1-cent pieces, $1,395,364. This has all been ab sorbed by the public, and there is every indication that the demand for these coins will continue large for months to come, and will add consider ably to the work at the Philadelphia mint. Coinage at the mints at San Francisco and Carson City after July Ist will be confined to gold pieces and Buch recoin age of subsidiary silver coins as may be reauired on the Pacific coast.
