Niles this morning filed suit for divorce
ngainst his wife, Paula Do Branco Niles,
in the Common Picas Court The petition
is quite lengthy. The petitioner
accused Sirs. Niles of gross neglect of
duty during the past six months in that
she had refused to live or cohabit with
her husband, and to fulfil her duties as
a wife.
It further expresses a belief that from
the action of Mrs. Niles it is her intention
to either secreto their two children
in this country or spirit them otut of the
country, jirj. juics now nus mu custody
of the cliildren, and Dr. Niles states
that she farmed one of them out with
peoplo of whom lie does not approve.
He also accuses Sirs. Niles of violent
temper, almost Insano jealousy and incompatibility,
and intimates that his
life with her was a hell on earth, owing
to their inability to agree. Mrs. Niles

From a Terrible Disaster oil Long; Island
New IIavex, Conn., July 31.?As tho

at 7 o'clock last night with about 1,300
excursionists on board, was about half
way botwecn New York and Bridgeport,
firo broko out ovor the boiler room near,
the port paddle wheel and blazed up in
a most alarming manner. Tho flames
were mostly below dock, but a dense
blnck smoke curled up which struck
terror to the hearts of the passengers.
The excitement on board was intense,
and for a few minutes amounted almost
to n panic. Women screamed, and the
little ones clunj: to their mothers. ^ A
mau and womfln in state room 49, which
is immediately over the boiler, were almost
[suffocated by the smoke which
tilled the room. Tho prompt work of
theofficors of the boat was tho only
thing that averted an awful disaster.
The overheated boiler ignited tho wood
work in tho engine-room. A few of tho
women fainted during tho fire, but no
ono was seriously injured.

A Lot 3Ioro Unclean Municipal Matter
Exposed Among tho Mercantile Approver*.
Philadelphia, Pa., July 81.?City
Treasurer Wright has written a lettor
to Auditor General McCaraant in reference
to certain practices in connection
with tho mercantile appraiserahip system
in this city. From tho facts
grouped together by Treasurer Wright,
it appears that the glaring abuses have
existed and especially in the collection
of delinquent mercantile taxes.
Last year G.550 delinquent suits were
broucht before magistrates at a cost of
$31,194 20, resulting in the securing of
judgments in but 240 cases and tho collection
of $2,075 60. Tho State was
thus mulcted for $28,807 70 in this
single item. In addition to this 10,307
nnnies wore stricken from tho list by
the appraisers after they had boon paid
02} cents per name for classifying them
and had aclvortised them at an additional
expense of $100 per name to the
Treasurer Wright charges that exemptions
have been mado for political
reasons, and with any diligence tho appraisers
should have known that the
persons afterwards exempted should
not have been put in tho list at all.
.In all it is shown that $007,000 of State
money was wasted In this way last year.
For the present year the appraisers
havo returned the large number of 10,970
delinquents and havo exempted 8,778
persons, while only 9,332 havo paid tlio

Lo.vdo.v, July 31.?Messrs. Dillon and
O'Brien's repudiation ot Paroeli, though
a foregone conclusion, has profoundly
depressed tho Parneilites, who relied
upon a belief that both would suspend
a public pronouncement..
Sir. l'arneli sought, through private
communications made on the ever of
their release, to resumo negotiations,
but neither responded to theso secret
overtures. Mr. l'arneli hoped until the
last moment yesterday that he would
again entunglo them in manouvroa tora
reunion. Their prompt and decisive
declarations as soon as they wore outside
the prison doors, and their refusal
to listen to any advances from the Pnrncllites,
fell like a death blow 'on tho
The last flicker of hope went out
when tho Lord Mayor of Dublin and
other devoted 1'nriiellites vainly tried
to induce Mr. O'Brien, who was supfio.'ed
to bo more ductile than Mr, Dilon,
to reconsidor the position. Mr.
O'Brien bluntly declined a renewal of
the Boulonge negotiations or any approach
thoreto. When tho attitude of
tho released leaders became definitely
known tho chief Dublin Parnellites
held a meeting privately and had a
warm time disputing over tho courso
tlioy should take. An intimation
reached them of the desertion of tho
party organs in Dublin and
Belfast and several members of theTarnellite
committo withdrew, leaving
the Btoadfast adliercuts to pass a resolution
denouncing Dillon and O'Brien
and urging Mr. l'arncll not to yield.
To-day -Mr. Parnell telegraphed to tho
committoo that defofoctions on every
aide would not make liiin alter his
courso a hair's breadth. He proposes
on Sunday to speak at Thurles, the
strong ecclesiastical centre in Ireland,
probably, anew to hurl defiance at the
bishops and to prophesy his future
But tlio truth now penetrating the
stoutest I'arncliito hearts is that thoir
cause is nigh extinct, and that it will be
useless to contlnuo the struggle. If
continued it will no longer have a constitutional
character. The composition
of the League sections now adhering .to
Parnell points to the reversion of the
faction to the old Fenian type. It is
safe to predict that Parnell will soon
appeal for the support of revolutionary
partisans abroad.
Mr. Parnell's personal embarrassment
docs not appear to have been relioved
by marriage. Ho has made an extraordinary
claim against Captain O'Shca
fori.'),600 ndvauced to him between
Snnlnmher. IftKfl. and November. 1690.
partly during tho period of tho divorce
proceedings. Captain O'Shoa denies
tho debt. Curious disclosures nro exported

London', July 31.?A dispatch was
published in this city several days ago
stating that tho Czar at tho instance of
the United States had ordored a temporary
relaxation of the laws and regulations
providing for tho expulsion of
Jews from ltusiio. On tho day following,
a dispatch was published hero from
Washington, D. 0., saying that tho

that tho Stuto Department )mJ said it
was absolutely untrue that any such intelligence
had been rccieved there. Tho
Dunlap-Dalioit agency, tho authority
for tho first dispatch, agoin assorts that
tho State Department at Washington
has received tho information referred
to, adding that tho information was received
direct from tho Stato Departmeut,
and that it has not denied tho
truth of tho Dunlnp-Dalziot statement
in tho United States.

Washington', D. C., July 31.?Acting

that the Department of State Is without
any information respecting the alleged
suspension of the Russian edict airainst
the Jews at the instanco of this government.
Nothing has been heard from
Dr. Crawford, tho Unitod States Consul
General at St. Petersburg, for a long
time past, which is convincing proof to
the Department that no action of such
importance as tho suspension of tho
edict has been ordered.
