With the opening of the new year some
very earnest temperance people organized
the National Temperance League with
headquarters at Nq. IW Broomfield street,
Boston. The League is founded on the
hope of rescuing the cause of temperance
from political Prohibition. Pamphlets by
eminent persons, Rev. Edward Everett
Hilt, Mrs. J. Ellen Foster and others as
jrell known will be issued.
The first publication is from the pen of
Rev. Dr. Dorchester and is entitled "Nonpartisanship
in Temperance Effort." Dr.
Dorchester contends that a third party
weakens the temperance cause and he
says, "the third party, after sixteen years'
existence, has never put a temperance law
on onr statute books; and that the question
of advanced temperance legialation has
never been so complicated, embarrassed
ud hindered as since it has been brought
uuo uie antagonisms and prejudices ol
party strife by tliird part/ action." The

WHAT WILL .loll* KELLY llO (
Some Anxiety About Bli Welfare on the
Part of the Administration
Haw Yoaa, April 30.?As'Clereland's
administration grows plder an,d tbe talk
of the coming eiection.'n (his State growl
louder, we begin to hearof the Importance
to the Democratic party of uniting the
J)>m0cnUiciaciio2i8 in. this city. oecre*
tary Whitney liai been here this week
lookmgtata thingt, and the adminlstraI
lion wanW to know" all about Jolin
Kelly and his plans.
. There hu been a good deal of talk about
Kelly's. waning power;'declining health
arid general breaking down, and there nay.
be something in it alL His newspaper
has ceased its daily publication, and Mr.
Kelly himself baa been away mast of the
winter. Interest in him does not flu, however,
and there are those who would rest
easier at night if they knew
more about the fntnre plans of
this statesman. The Star issues only
on Sunday, but its presses, I bear, are kept
well oiled, and there ia not enough dust
on the cases to prevent its proprietor from
starting a pretty lively, daily paper almost
any of these bright mornings. The probabilities,
are, however, that be will remain
for the summer at least only an interested
observer of affairs about him.
A gentleman speaking of the Tammany
Chief a few days am, said: "There is no
doubt that Mr. Kelly made a great mis- ,
take last fall; (o^the first time in the
ijvhole.course of Kurilublic'llfe he tnrned
coward. What ka should have done waa ,

never wopld have "pat a candidate for the ,
mavoralltv in the field, and Mavor Grace
and Urover Cleveland would have been i
whipped out of their boots, instead of doing
that he decided to aupport Cleveland.
Hts followers had no heart to follow him,
but enough of them did so to
elect him and defeat their own |
candidate for the Mayoralty in ,
the bargain. It was the lamest tiling that j
John Xally ever acaimplished. As it It,
I das see very little future for'hlm: Dan |
Manning waa an old enemy ol Kelly, and i
KelT/Should have fought him, and, conse- ,
Suently, Cleveland. Sow Dan Manning ,
as. Kelly in bis power, and both he ,
and the President are determined |
that Tammany shall die. It will ;

Chicago.' Aoril 30.?A band of train
robbers a tucked a passenger train n eaj
Harrodsburg laat night, and in addition t?
securing many valuables, probably killed
two of the bain's crew who attempted to
repel them. The train attacked was the
Chicago express, on the LBuisville, New
Albany and Chicago railroad, which Jefl
Louisville last evening. The whole affair
was marked by the daring o( Missouri
desperadoes 67 the James boys* type!
When the train was near Barrodabnrg, a
small town, the bandits, numbering hill a
dozen, came out of the thicket, and as the
engineer sloytd up, the cab w? boarded,
and with revolvers pointed at his head,
the engineer was compelled to stop the
train. Leaving two of their number to
guard the cab, with a shout the remainder
went through the cars flourishing revolvers
and compelling the passengers to display
their pocketbooks and valuables.
The passengers, ol whom there was a fair
number, seemed paialjz id with fear and
allnvmi themselves to be HParnhvd without
opposition. All the care were gone through
in thin style and several thousand dollars
secured. . ?
While the robbers weresearchingtbe passengers
the people of the other train congregated
near the baggage car, and after the Knit
surprise wore off, attacked the robbers.
A abort and sharp conflict ensued, but the
trainmen hadexected nothing ofthe kind,
and were illy prepared to .nmist. The
robbers opened tire on the little band of
resolute fellows and several of their shots
took effect, while the side of the car was
punctured with bullets. Two of the crew
were mortally hurt, as follows:
ISeorob K DAris, express messenger,shot
and beaten.
Petck WmiiiK, baggage master, beaten
with a club.
The robbers then broke open the safe
in the car, bnt found only ?0U in it. They
jscaped to the woods. It is not known
tiow mueh booty they secured.
The Louisville express arrived about
three hours late, and the passengers and
trainmen relata an entirely different aejouut
of the-robbery than the one- first
telegraphed.' It apneam that there was
ao organised band of highwaymen. Shorty
beforethe train should have reached
Bloomiogton, a man having the appearing
of ?trtDPi entered the express car
from the smoking car, armed witll a hpayy
lickory stick. In the express car weru
Jeo. K. Davis, the express messenger, and
Peter ' Webber, the baggageman, He
Itruclf Webber on the head, felling him,
while Davia for ||i? revolver. Uefore
be could reach it the wan bit hfm al4u,

knd stopped the tpiin. but first fired
