A Bloody Street Fight in Which Many Head* Were Broken—The Dublin Dynamite Bplaode ia Fat In the Fire. Associated Press Dispatches. Cork, Oct. 27.— The feeling aroused throughout Ireland, and especially in this city, by the recent political and factional sayings and doiDgs, is very bitter, and threatens to result in serious oonflicts between the McCarthyites and Parnellites. There were several affrays here yesterday evening at the close of the various gaolitical meetings, and sticks and stones were freely used by both parties. The result is that a num ber of the members of the two opposing parties are being nursed in hospitals aud elsewhere for severe wounds incurred the frays. DILLON AND 0 - BRIEN IN CORK. Messrs. William O'Brien and John Dillon arrived here today. The two dis tinguished members of parliament were met by a deputation and an enormous crowd of people, who formed a proces sion headed by a brass band and es corted by a Btrong detachment of police. There was no disturbance. O'Brien, during his speech at the assembly rooms, said he was willing to give fair play to his opponents, but added that he would not yield to brickbats and dynamite bombs. Continuing, O'Brien said they (the Parnellites) mignt blow up the of fice (the newspaper- representing the views of the McCarthyites), "but," he exclaimed, "they cannot destroy the spirit which animates that party." O'Brien further declared that it had become his duty to drive the followers of I'arnell from parliament. The con vention thereupon called upon Dr. fvinny to resign his seat. A PITCHED STREET BATTLE. As soon as the convention closed its proceedings Dillon and O'Brien passed through the city, still accompanied by the procession which met them at the railroad Btation. Suddenly the Mc- Carthyites were attacked by a large mob of Parnellites, and both sides lough > desperately with sticks, clubs, shovels and pikes. A detachment of mounted police was sent for, and the ran in between the the two lines of combatants, striking right and left with the flat of their sabres, amid two crossing showers of stones and bricks. A large number of wounded were stretched bleeding and groaning in the streets before the troop ers restored order. A neighborhood hospital had to And accommodation for many wounded persons by the time hostilities were suspended. There was great excitement every where in Oork this evening. The antag onistic groups, it is feared, will reassem ble, aud there is danger thet the battle between them will be resumed. This evening troops have formed in the square for the protection of-the open air meeting to be addressed by Dillon and O'Brien. TIIE DUBLIN DYNAMITE EPISODE. Dublin, Oct. 27.—The National Press, the McCarthyite organ, referring to the attempt to blow up its office last night with a bomb says : "The men who laid the infernal machine at our doors have been taught ior the past ten months by the Freeman's Journal and by United Ireland that freedom of opinion will no longer be tolerated, and that every op posing Nationalist may righteously be mobbed, and if necessary murdered. The instruments of crime who have been educated by their masters to cow ardly practice, own the precepts of Par nelism. With the death of their creator, they have descended to the practice of Nihilists and Carbonara." The National I'reßS also declares that after the explosion of the bomb in the Abbey street area fifty or sixty men, supposed to be part of the gang of Par nellites to whose credit the explosion is placed, poured into the National Press office, shouting: "To hell with the Healy murderers. Ia Tim dead?" CHILEAN ADVICES. The Principles on Which the Govern ment is to Be Re-established. Panama, Oct 27.—Chilean advices say the different political parties that initi ated the revolution in Chile are making a draft of the programme that is to be observed by the new administration, and they will all sign a compact, promis ing to respect it, no matter who gains the presidential ele-Jtion. This pro gramme does not ten-* to provide a new style of administration; it merely estab lishes the general principles that, based on liberty, are to be observed by.the new political organization, and these principles are the right of suffrage; the punishment of any government officials who should interfere in the elections; absolute independence of the three chief authorities of the nation ; submission to a resolution of the chambers; the re sponsibility of the president and his ministers;'reduction of the ordinary ex penses : the conversion of the national paper currency into inetalic currency ; reduction of the army; augmentation of tbe fleet; the suppression of unneces sary employments; the steady develop ment of railroads; amicable relations with all other nations; the limitatian of the diplomatic service and the estab lishment of commercial treaties with different nations. A Ransom fer Captured Provinces. Panama, Oct. 27.—The latest from Lima, concerning the captured pro vinces held by Chile, is that Sefiora Rosa Vayan, the widow of Correa, and many of the principal ladies of Lima, are de termined to raise funds for the ransom of the Peruvian provinces taken by Chile in tbe late international war. HAWAIIAN DEPENDENCE. Cable Connection Will Make the Islands - Part of the United States. San Francisco, Oct. 27.—"When the Hawaiian cable is built and the United States utilizes Pearl harbor as a coaling and naval station, Hawaii will be as much a part of the United States as India ia a part of England," said Dr. Smith, minister of finance of the Ha waiian kingdom, today. Dr. Smith further stated that these islands are drawn to America in everyway, and the United States need fear nothing from England's efforts to obtain a foothold. There ia some amicable understanding between the United States and England wl.efeby the latter government doea not even maintain a coaling station on the islands. The completion of the cable will be a grand thing for the United States as well as for Hawaii. Riverside Items. .Riverside, Cal., Oct. 27. -The Ameri can Library association visited this city this morning. The citizens drove them over the valley until noon.

Not a Word of Regret Spoken or Offer of Reparation Made for the Brutal Butch ery of the Baltimore's Sailors—Minis ter Egan's Instructions. Washington, Oct. 27.—The telegram which was sent by the president's order to Minister Egan on the 23d inst., after reciting the facts of the assault on the Baltimore's sailors, and the result of Captain Schley's investigation, says: "You will observe that the board of offi cers selected by Captain Schley to in vestigate this affair, report that our sailors were unarmed andgave no provo cation ; that the assaults upon them were by armed men, greatly superior in num bers, and, as we must conclude, ani mated in their bloody work by hostility to these men aa sailors of the United States. Yon will also notice that the character of some of the wounds indicate that tbe public oolice or some of them took part in the attack, and you will also observe that other American aailora were, without apparent fault, arreated and for some time held by the authori ties. The friendly efforts of a few of the police officers to give succor to our men, furnished the only redeeming incident of this affair. Thia cruel work, so in jurious to the United States, took place on the 10th inst., and yet no expression of regret or of purpose to make a searching inquiry with the view of the institution of proper proceedings for the punishment of the guilty parties has been, ao far aa I am advised, offered to this government. You will at once bring to the attention of the government of Chile the facta reported to you by Captain Schley, and will inquire whether there are any qualifying facta in the poßseaaion of "that government, or any explanation to be offered of an event that has very deeply pained the people of «the United States, not only by reason of the resulting death of some of our sailors and the pitileßs wounding of others, but even more, as an apparent expression of unfriendli neaa toward this government, which might put in peril the maintenance of amicable relations between the two countries. If the facta are aa reported by Captain Schley, thia government can not doubt that the government of Chile will offer prompt and full reparation. You will furnish the foreign office a full paraphrase of this dispatch, and report promptly to this government." AFFAIRS IN CHILE. Many Political Executions—A Peculiar Commercial Condition. New York, Oct. 27.—A letter from Iquique, Chile, dated September 16th, says: Reports received here from the south state that a large number of exe cutions occurred in Santiago and Val paraiao in the past few weeks. The vic tims are people who had been'particu larly active in their opposition to the but none of them persons of any special prominence. Commercial affairs in Iquique and in all other porta in the northern part of Chile are in a peculiar condition at the present time. During the revolution the ports in the south of Chile were closed against those in the north, and no pro duce of any kind was received here from the south; consequently large cargoes, principally flour and hay, were imported here from San Francisco and other for eign porta. More of theae articles were received here than could be consumed at the time, and merchants in Iquique, Antofogasta and other northern porta now have large stocks on hand which they are unable to dispose of. They will suffer heavy losses. Bennlng's Races. Washington, Oct. 27.—Five furlonga— Halenderl colt first, Knapsack second, Thiers third; time, 1:01%.

OCTOBER 28, 1891.—TEN PAGES. M'KINNEY'S VICTORY Comment on the Great Four- Cornered Race. The Strictures of Wanda's Owner Answered. Palo Alto Now the Second Fastest Trotting: Stallion. His Record Lowered to B:lo—Smith Whips Riordan in a Bloody Twen ty-Six-Round Fight—Other Sporting News. • Mr. Frank H. Burke, the owner of Wanda, has had himself interviewed in regard to the four-cornered race held in thia city laat Saturday. It waa natural to expect that Mr. Burke and the other northern ownera and trainers would feel a little sore over the result of the race. They had expected to, make the coup of the season. The statement made by Mr. Burke is remarkable to say the least. He is credited with saying that Frank M. won the second and third heats. Thousands of people saw the race, and it is safe to assert that no one outside of Mr. Burke can be found who will state that McKinney did not finish first on both the second and third beats. Mr. Burke has in all probability been misquoted. He was in the timers' stand and must certainly have Been both finishes. There waa not a Shadow of a doubt that McKinney won. lorn Keat ing, the driver of Frank M., admitted to the writer that McKinney finiahed first in both the second and third heats, yet Mr. Burke haß the effrontery to 6fate that Frank M. came in first. Mr. Burke is talking through his stove pipe. Frank M. beat MeKinney in the fourth heat by less than eight feet after a driving finish. The judges gave the heat to McKinney, holding that the drivers of Frank M., Wanda and Silas Skinner had combined to beat McKin ney and bad forced him all over the track. In the second and third heats McKinney was kept in a pocket for three-quarters of a mile and was then compelled to trot all round the other trottere. . The late race cornea in for considerable discussion. While the majority uphold the decision of the judges, still there are some who think that it would have been more polite to have called the heat no heat or have given it to Frank M. and sent Wanda and Silas Skinner to the atable. The heat was given to McKinney in accordance with the fol lowing rules: Rule 74. Although a leading horse is entitled to any part of the track, except after selecting his position on the home stretch, he shall not change from lite rigid to ihe left, or from the inner to the ositnr aide of the track, during any part of the race when another horse is bo near him that in altering his position he compels the horse behind him to shorten hia Btride, or cauae the rider or driver of euch horse to pull him out of his stride ; neither shall any horse, rider or driver cross, jostle, or strike another horse, rider, or driver, nor swerve, or "carry him out," "sit down in front of him," or do any other act which constitute what is popularly known as "helping," or which shall impede the progresa of another horse: Rule 75. In any heats where there Bhall be a violation of any of these re strictions, the offending horße shall not be entitled to win the heat, and he may be placed behind all the unoffending horees in that heat, and if the judgeß believe the forbidden act was intentional on the part of the rider or driver, hia horse may be ruled out, and each rider or driver may be fined not to exceed the amount of the puree or stake contended for, or he may be suspendedor expelled. GAME OLD PALO ALTO. n< Trots a Mile In 3:10 Flat, Koual- Ing Nelson's Time. Stockton, Cal., Oct. 27. —A week ago the famoua stallion Palo Alto was driven by Charles Marvin iv 2:11%, lowering his record one second. Today Marvin drove him a mile over the Stockton track in 2:10, lowering hia rec ord one and a quarter seconds, and equaling Nelaon'a time. Palo Alto came cut last week limping from hia old lameneas of several years' standing, and many horsemen said he could not lower his mark. But he' has been improving all the while, and tfow it is the general belief of turfmen that a week hence he will go a mile faster than Allerton's rec ord of 2:09%. The horse came out fresh and fast to day, aud in hia warming up it was Been that he was ready to go a very fast mile. After three miles of preliminary work, Marvin nodded for the word, and with a runner close up, Palo Alto was sent away at a record-breaking gait. Marvin had hia hands full to hold the old fellow down to the proper rating, but he kept him level and went to the quarter in 32 seconds, which was said by many to be too fast. With Marvin pulling hard he went to the half mile in 1:03%, making just one skip in the quarter* The runner kept at close quarters and the trotter went to the three-quarters in 1:36%, strong and game. In the straight finish, where many thought he would weaken, the old hero came down well within himself, and made his great eat rate Btrong, with Marvin swishing hia whip occasionally but not uaing it. When he went under the wire in the desperate finish the three timers made the record 2:10 flat, and a great shout went up. But for the break he would have got in faster. He cooled out well, and did njt show distress over the ef fort. If the weather holds good he will go against his record a week from today. After Palo Alto'a wonderful perform ance, a number of other horses went against their recorda. Novelist, a two year-old, made 2:17 in a race againat Boodle. Guide equalled his former rec ord of 2:16%. Frou Frou, yearling, to beat 2:42, went in 2:354. Stamboul has been ordered home and will not trot against the rd "a his owner wants to save him fc i n. « Ask for the Agnes Boot!: 0 , BLOODY BRUISERS. A Sickening- Exhibition of the Manly Art In San Francisco. San Francisco, Oct. 27.—1n tbe Smith-Riordan fight tonight, Smith forced the pace, and while Riordan countered effectively at timea, the clean eat and hardest blows were Smith'a, who landed repeatedly over Riordan's heart. Riordan waa knocked down in the firat round, also in the aecond. From the fifteenth to the aixteenth rounds, Smith kept aggresaive, driving his right for the jaw, and planting hia right over the heart. He bled a little at the nose from Riordan'a left Btops. Riordan'a play aeemed to wear Smith out. From the aixteenth, Smith gradually tired, and Riordan cautiouely aaaumed the aggreasive. In the twenty-second Smith brought a stream of blood from Riordan'a eye with a terrific back-hand left." He pounded the injured optic till Riordan'a cheek and breast were covered with blood. Smith repeated his new blow at every opportunity, and in the twenty fifth, Riordan's face and chert were cov ered with gore, and the men's gloves were slippery. Riordan went to the floor, remaining eight seconds and mse to he knocked down and was car ried to a chair at the close of the round. In the twenty-sixth Bmith smashed both hands into the injured eye. The scene was sickening as the game and bleeding Riordan struggled about the ring twice and rising only to receive Smith's powerful upper cuta full on hia injured member, and tbe spectators cheered their approbation when Referee Cook stepped into the ring and stopped the fight, awarding it to Smith. Tug of War. San Francisco, Oct. 27.—The inter national tug of war at Mechanics' pavil ion, tonisht, resulted as follows: Ger many beat Sweden in 39 minutes; Nor way beat Canada in 45 minutes; Amer ica defeated Italy in 13 minutes. The Scots beat the Danea in 29%' minutes. A WORD FOR TAMMANY. GROVER CLEVELAND PRESIDES AT A CAMPAIGN MEETING. He Takes tTp the Cudgels for That Much Abused Organization, Tammany Hall. Mr. Flower's Honorable Career Praised. Governor Hill Also Speaks. New York, Oct. 27.—When Grover Cleveland waa presidential candidate in 1884, the leading men of his party on the produce exchange organized the Business Men's association, which was very active. The organization was maintained and last winter incorporated aa the New York Democratic club. Un der its auspices a campaign meeting waa held at Madison square tonight, at which a series of resolutions of a bitter tenor loss of the world'a fair to New York, and other topics, were passedi.y ' , Ex-Preaident Cleveland was then in troduced as chairman and spoke in substance as follows: Those engaged in business pursuits have kept too much aloof from public affairs, and ao generally acted upon the theory that neither their duty aa citi zens nor their personal intereata required of them any habitual participation in political movementa. Thia indifference and inactivity have resulted in loss to the public service. The ex-president said he is firmly of the belief that if a few business men could be substituted for professional men in official places, the people would positively gain by the exchange. Mr. Cleveland had something to say about the proper adjustment of the tar iff, tbe economical administration of state affairs and the Republican plan of shrieking throughout the state the de merits and dangerous proclivities of a certain political organization whose members aupport the principles and candidates of the Democratic party. Even if all they alleged against thia or ganization were true, the perila they present are baaeleaa and absurd. Every man ought to satisfy himself whether the principles and candidate of the party are such aa he appprovee. Mr. Cleveland closed with reference to the purity of Mr. Flower's business career and approved the other candi date. Both Mr. Cleveland and Governor Hill who also spoke, were roundly cheered.
