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
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.
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
The Revolution Makes No Progress—The
Rebel Army Dissatisfied.
London, June 26.—An official dis
patch from Santiago, Chile, asserts that
the revolt makes no progress, and that
the government's cordon takes posses
sion of the ports without opposition in
the provinces occupied by the rebels.
The rebel army is asserted to be discon
tented because of bad food and lack of
pay. The presidential elections will pro
ceed quietly in nineteen out of twenty
two provinces. The people and army

London, June 20. —The vigilance com
mittee in Whitechapel has been re
awakened to activity by an undoubted
warning in the shape of a letter in

No Beal Trouble With the Moquis and
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.
A Protest Against the Violation of the
Glorious Traditions of France.
Paris, June 26. —In the debate on the
Brussels inti-slavery act, resumed in the
deputies yesterday, Pion maintained
that the French plenipotentiaries at
the Brussels congress virtually ac
ceded to the right of search, thus
violating the glorious traditions of
France. The chamber ought not permit
the French government to cast itself at
the feet of Great Britain and Germany.
Ribot, minister of foreign affaire, sug
gested that the bill be referred back to
the government, which was agreed to.
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
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.
A Family of Counterfeiters Unearthed at
San Francisco, June 26.—The arrest
last Sunday night of Mrs. Sarah Reeves,
for passing counterfeit coin, has led to
the unearthing of a whole gang of coun
terfeiters. Mrs. Reeves, her husband,
son and brother have been living in Oak
land some time making silver dollars.
Having made a supply, Mrs. Reeves
came to this city, while her broth
ef, W. J. Marshall, and her son Willie
Reeves, started on a tour of the north
ern part of the state. They were ar
rested at Yreka, Monday; the boy con
fessed. He says they used a wagon,
and stopped at all the small towns from
Oakland to Yreka, passing one counter
feit on each storekeeper. The police
are now searching for R. J. Reeves, tho
woman's husband, who is believed to be
the actual maker of the coins. All the
rest are now in jail.

Associated Pross Dispatches.
Boone, lowa, June 26.—The first
direct news from the scene of the floods
on the Maple river branch of the Chi

ceived at the company's headquarters,
this city, today. The dispatch is from
the operator at Moville, and he says
that town is almost wiped out. The
water runs in at the depot windows,
and is up to the ceilings of all the build
ings. All the houses in the flat portion
of the town have been swept away, and
the railroad turn table is washed from
its place. Three miles of track are gone

Fort Dodge, la., June 26.—An eye*
witness of Tuesday's flood, who has just

age done. "Why," he exclaimed, "it
ia fearful the way the immense body of
water swept things before it! Houses
were seen to tremble, swing half round
and be carried along by the torrent.
Trees were bent and The most
remarkable feature of the disaster is
that any of tbe people in the track of
the flood escaped with their lives. So
far as I could learn, no lives were lost
at Cherokee and the immediate vicinity.
The storm rendered between 300 and
400 families homeless in and abcut Cher
okee. The amount of damage will reach
a quarter of a million dollars."

Galveston, Tex., June 26.—During
the prevalence of a severe storm this
forenoon, lightning struck aud exploded
the powder house of the American Pow

powder. The concussion caused the
Hazard & Dupont and the Latin
Grand powder houses to explode also,
and the fireworks magazine of
Victor Cortinez. Although these
powder magazines were located
near Kagle Grove, four miles
west of the city, the shock of the explo
sion caused houses to rock and sway in
the city as -if in the throes of an earth
quake. Glass was broken, doors flung
opt'ii, plaster fell from the walls, goods
came tumbling down from the shelves,
and people were badly frightened.
Where the powder houses stood, there is
not a vestige of the buildings left, and

circumfereuce and twenty-five to thirty
in depth. Buildings in the immediate
neighborhood and for three-quarters of

Directors of Insane Asylums Not Exempt
from Actions at Law.
San Francisco, June 26.—The su
preme court yesterday reversed the de
cision of the superior court of San Joa

directors of the Stockton asy
lum for the % insane, against
James Simth. Smith placed his wife
in the asylum as a pay patient, and in
due course of time was asked to pay for
her Smith refused to
pay and was sued. He resisted the suit
on the ground that the asylum
is a state institution, and * that
the state can neither sue
nor be sued. The Supreme court
of San Joaquin county, decided in
Smith's favor, the directors appealed to
the supreme court. The supreme court
holds that the directors of asylums for
the insane in this state are trustees, and
as such have the right to sue and be
sued. The judgment of the lower court
is therefore reversed.
