Exciting Scene Before the Coroner's Jury. London, September 20.—At to-day's hearing in the Mitchellstown inquiry Con stable Doran swore that he fired four shots at the crowd, twice with bnckshot and twice with ball. ^The first bullet he fired prostrated a man. HarringtOD, M. P., had quite a tilt with this witness, calling him a murderer, etc. Sergt. Rider deposed that he fired three charges from the window of the barracks. He declined to say whether he murdered any one ; he simply did his duty, he said. Mr. Harrington, interposing, said : ' Lis ten to me, you villain.'' Witness replied warmly that he was no villain, and asked the coroner's protection. Harrington said the witness had been sent there to bully him, and he was hardly able to restrain himsely from kicking him then and there. A spirited altercation en sued, the spectators taking Harrington's side. The inquiry finally had to be post poned. It is certain that a verdict of mur der will be rendered against certain police men. Branch Leagues to be Suppressed. Dublin, September 20.—The Evening Telegraph home rule, states that the gov ernment has decided to put into force the suppression clauses of the coercion act, and adds : This decision means that over 200 branches of the League will be at once prohibited from holding meetings. The Dublin Gazette publishes a procla mation suppressing the League and all its branches in county Clare, Cavan, Lei trim, Loughrea, Galway, Cork, Tipperary, Kerry, Condon, Roscommon, Kerry, Gal way and Wexford. The proclamation is signed by Prince Edward, of Saxe Weimer, commander of the forces in Ireland ; Iiaron Ashbourn, Lord Chancellor of Ireland ; A. J. Balfour, Chief Secretary for Ireland ; Henry l'ruen, Justice of the Peace ; G. G. Gibson, Attorney General for Ireland, and Gen. Boiler. The Gazette announces that Gen. Bulier has been sworn in as a member of the Privy Council. The proclamation makes it criminal to convoke, hold or publish meetings or do anything in connection with the League. The Nationalist leaders are hurriedly con sulting as to what measures shall be taken. Dillon und Irish Adairs. Limerick, September 20.—John Dillon presided at a great meeting held in Lim erick town hall to-day, under the auspices of the National League. The hall was crowded. Dillon made the speech of the day, and dwelt at length on the case of Editor O'Brien, of the United Ireland. Dil lon said that O'Brien would doubtless be a condemned felon, but if so, he would have the sympathy of the whole civilized world. The government must not, Dillon con tinued, think they could crush the league by any such means as those resorted to in the prosecution of O'Brien. Each arrest of that kind would but add fresh courage and spirit to the people of Ireland in their struggle for home rule and increase the gulf of separation between the land lords and populace and put new fuel into the tire now burning. The United States of America, Dillon declared, was now back of the great Irish home rule movement. Elected to Parliament. Dublin, September 21.—Kilbride, who accompanied Wm. O'Brien to Canada, was to-day, without opposition, elected to repre sent South Kerry in the House of Com mons.

Dr. Bar nard O'Reilly, of New York, who is stay ing at Glengariff, Ireland, to day received the appointment of Domestic Frelate to the Pope. Streets and Parks. We commend to our city council serious consideration and resolute action in refer ence to the width of streets, the plentiful insertion of alleys and provisions for public parks in all the new city additions. The old townsite is beyond any great improve ment in these respects. It was laid out without any regard to the future, for it was only regarded as a mining camp then. Bat now we have become a permanent and con siderable city, and there is no excuse for disregarding the future in all our arrange ments. No street should be less than seventy feet, and there ought to be some as wide as a hundred feet. Considerations as well of health, convenience and taste, as of safety from sweeping conflagrations, re quire this. Aud every addition of a quar ter section ought to bave a park of one block at least, as additional breathing space, a place for exercise and escape iu time of fire, aud as rallying points to make a stand against snch exposures. We know that Chicago, New Yotk, Bos ton and nearly every city in the country bas had these sweeping fires, though built of stone and brick and supplied with abundance of water. It is poor economy, poor policy to scrimp on street room and public grounds. With an abundant water supply we shall have shade trees in our streets, and their growth ought to be provided for and en couraged, but they take space, and our narrow streets will look still narrower when they are generally »applied. Proper ty owners should think that if the old town were swept with fire, there would lie danger of its being abandoned for a site where greater protection could be had. We are sorry to say that property owners about our city have generally been too short sighted to regard the future of public interests. They seem only to haveihought how to cut up their grounds into the great est number of lots. If there is any power any where to hold this tendency iu check, by all means let it be applied before it is too late. County Valuation. The assessor of Lewis and Clarke county, Wm. H.

How Visitors Will He Entertained. How the Camps Will He Laid Out. Other Matters Briefly Touched Upon. On the 20th of this month the delegates and visitors to the grand encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic will begin to congregate in St. Louk, which city will then be quite ready to receive them. St. Louis is particularly well fitted for an encampment. A series of parks, great and smal 1 extends from one end of the city to the other, a dis tance of nine miles. In these parks the tents of the veterans will be pitched. The feature of the encampment week will naturally be the encampment of the visitors, 30,000 of whom are expected to inhabit the city of tents which will spring into existence Sept. 24. There are only about 700 delegates to the grand encampment, and there will not be more than 000 of these in the city. The rest of the visitors will be on pleasure bent. The encampment will not be the harvest for the caravansaries that the Knight Templar con clave was last year. Then men balanced themselves on chairs and slept on billiard tables all night, and paid $5, $8 and $10 a day for these sleeping accommodations with meals. During the encampment it is prom ised that a bed can be had at the best hotel in the city, with board, for $5 a day. Camp accommodations are free to the veterans, and they can get meals under contract at places in the vicinity of all the camps for I twenty-five cents each. ;ß. 1 —l__—- . j ffnT r mi i Vr Æ rrr u ill 9®? g erv if: r-.. T*T^ GRAND TRIUMPHAL ARCH. There is one point at which guard mount will be decidedly practical—at national head quarters in Washington square. An armed battalion attached to a Springfield, Mass., post will mount guard at the tent of the com mander-in-chief at all hours of the day and through most of the night. Washington square is the most centrally located of the public parks. It is only two blocks from Union depot audit is diagonally across the 6treet from the jail aud criminal court build ing. It exteuds west from Twelfth to Thir teenth street, and north from Clark avenue to Market street, crossing Walnut street. At the head of Walnut Etreet on Twelfth street, facing east, will be the headquarters of the commander-in-cliief. A large oblong tent will be erected as near the center of the park as is practicable, facing down Walnut street. In front of the tent will fly the national colors, while on either sido of the avenue leading to it will stand a piece of artillery. Along Twelfth street from Walnut to Market on one side, and Walnut to Clark avenue on the other, will be the state headquarters— large wall tents plainly fitted and decorated, each bearing the name of the state to which it is assigned. The delegations arriving will be marched from Union depot to their state headquarters, where they will report. Thence they will be transported to their camping places. The Kansas veterans will be encamped in Washington square, directly in the rear of national headquarters. Illinois will occupy Lyon park, in the extreme southern portion of the city. Missouri will be stationed in Hyde park, which is in the northern section. Jackson square, to which Nebraska has been assigned, is in North St. Louis. St. Louis park, one of the largest in the city, is further 60 uth. It will be occupied by Indiana, and probably by Kentucky. Carr park, which is much nearer the center of the city, has been assigned to Iowa and Wisconsin. Illinois will probably occupy, in addition to Lyon park, a smaller one—Concordia park—a few blocks away. Each camp will consist of an assemblage of regulation wall tents, each holding eight men, with a larger tent for the commander of tho camp, and the local adjutant having it in change. Next the commander's tent will be a small press tent. Each camp will have a branch office of the Western Union Telegraph company, and as far as practicable the camps will be connected by telegraph, so that communication between them will be comparatively easy. All tho larger camps will be illuminated through the night by arc lights. The chairman of the committee on camps. Col. John B. Gaudolfo, will have his head quarters in the Court House square. The court house building is of tho usual cross shape, the four corners of the square being open grass plots. On one of these corners Col. Gaudolfo will pitch his tent. The other three corners have been reserved for Gover nor Rusk, of Wisconsin, who announces his intention of coming with his full staff to par ticipate in the encampment. He will be escorted to the city by Robert Cbives post, of Milwaukee. Immediately on its arrival, Bept. 25, Robert Chives post will take a train on tho Iron Mountain road for Jefferson barracks, the military post just below the city. One of the features of the encampment will be a series of excursions to this point by rail and river to visit the National cemetery, where several hundred soldiers are buried. The programme committee was in a quandary for some time over the question of transportation to the barracks, ns ail the large excursion steamers on the Mississippi go south for the cotton trade in September. It is not unlikely that Ohio l iver boats will have to be obtained for the excursions. In addition to the daily trips on the river to the National cemetery, a numlter of excursions to old battle grounds in Kentucky, Tennessee and the southern and southeastern territory around St. Louis have been arranged. For Thursday of encampment wee': a general excursion to Springfield, Ills., is on the pro gramme. The programme at Springfield in cludes a trip to the National cemetery and the Lincoln monument and a lunch. From the returns received by the general executive committee there is promise of 75, 000 visitors in the city during the encamp ment. The committee on camps figured out some time ago that tent accommodations would be required for 24.200 men, as follows: Missouri, 5,000; Illinois, 7,000; Indiana, 2,000; Kansas, 6,000; Iowa and Wisconsin, 1,600; Kentucky, 800; Nebraska, 800; scattering, 1 , 000 . In addition to their headquarters in "Waan ington square, most of the northern and western departments, and all of the eastern departments with the exception of New Hampshire, have made arrangements for headquarters at some one of the down town hotels or at some other central point. The commander-in-chief, Gen. Fairchild, and his adjutant, Gen. Gray, will have headquarters on the parlor floor of the Southern hotel, at the corner of Fourth street and Walnut street. The state headquarters, as assigned, are: Arkansas, Southern hotel; California, South ern; Colorado, Lindelt; Connecticut, Southern; Dakota, Southern; Delaware, Lindell; Florida, Southern; Gulf, Hotel Barnum; Illinois, Lindell; Indiana, Sixteenth street and Lucas place; Iowa, Iaclede hotel ; Kansas, Lindell; Main*', St. James; chigan, St. James; Minnesota, Southern; Mis souri, Masonic hall; Nebraska, Laclede; New Jersey, Lindell: New Mexico, Planters' house; New York, Southern; Ohio, Lindell; Uennsylva» nia, Laclede; Potomac, Hotel Barnum; Vermont, Hurst's hotel. The programme for the entertainment of the guests of the city during encampment week includes a parade on Tuesday morning and a reception to the Grand Army at Cham ber of Commerce hall Tuesday evening; the grand nocturnal street parade of the Trades' Display association and the reception and hop to the Women's Relief corps at the Chamber of Commerce hall Thursday evening; a banquet to the encampment delegates Friday evening, and a breakfast to tho visiting pres3 representatives Saturday morning. These are the chief features. They will be varied with camp fires, excursions, pyrotechnic dis plays, and hundreds of other smaller features. On the evenings of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the principal streets will be illuminated for miles with lines of glit tering gas jets shaded by parti colored globes. Huge arches of fire will span the streets at intervals, and special designs in brilliant ca thedral glass, illumined by electric light, will bid the Grand Army welcome. At the inter section of Fourth and Olive streets will be the equestrian figure of Gen. Grant; at Broad way and Washington avenue, the figure of Abraham Lincoln; in front cf "Railroad row," on Fourth street, an engine and tender picked out in 3,500 gas jets, the L „' _ and the whistle blowing at intervals. At the intersection of Twelfth and Olive streets will be the Grand Army triumphal arch. It will span Olive street from curb to curb. On top of one of the columns that support it will be the figure of a soldier, musket iu hand, stand ing beside a cannon ; on the other column will bo t he figure of a sailor armed with a cutlass, one hand on a cannon and the other on an anchor. Beneath each of these figures will hang suspended a huge fac simile of the G. A. R. badge. Beneath these badges, iu niches sunk in the columns, will stand mortal's. In the cen ter of the arch will be a transparency, with an equestrian figure of Gen. Grant. This transparency will be illuminated at night. Grouped around it will bo the flags of war and peace. Surmonnting the arch will be a chariot drawn by four horses. Tho parade ot' Tuesday will brine together 20,000 veterans. Tho number has been vari ously estimated at 50,000 and dow nward, but I think I am safe in saying that the number will approximate 20,000. Gen. Grier will act ns grand marshal of tho parade. He will head the column, followed by the Springfield, Mas?., armed battalion of 100, which Las offered to act as escort to the com mander-in-chief. Gen. Fairchild and his aids will follow, mounted, and then will come the veterans on foot. Mis souri will head the column, and Frank P. Blair post, No. 1, of St. Louis, will have the right of line. There will be one mounted post in the procession—John A. Logan post, of St. Louis, which will turn out forty men. One California mounted post conceived the idea of bringing on its horses, but it is under stood to bave abandoned the plan. The pro cession will move in columns of twelve or six teen men from Franklin avenue, on Broad way, to Morgan street, to Fourth street, to Chouteau avenue, to Broadway (or Fifth street), to Washington avenue, to Fifteenth street, to Olive street, to Twelfth street, where it will pass under tho triumphal arcli and in front of the reviewing stand and dis band. The line of march is about two and a half miles long. The business session of the encampment w ill begin on Tuesday in tho Exposition hall, and continue morning and evening until Fri day, when it is expected the session will con clude with tho election of officers. Friday evening's banquet will practically wind up encampment week, and Saturday will be de voted to clearing up the debris. Ail the local arrangements Lave been in the hands of a general executive committee, of w hich Gen. D. P. Grier is chairman, and Capt. J. U. Steger, secretary. The commit tee includes in its membership a number of prominent citizens, many of them ex-Confed erates. They have under their control a fund of nearly $100,000 raised by popular subscrip tion for the entertainment of the visitors. The Toronto Exhibition. Tho Industrial Exhibition association of Toronto, Canada, opened its exhibition on the 6th in connection with the Dominion exhibi tion, to continue until the 16th, tiie governor general officiating. Tho buildings of the exhibition, exclusive of the grounds.cost $250, 000; C40.000 in addition was expended during kc Frrfm 7f. C23 va' « TORONTO EXHIBITION BUILDINGS, the summer just past in new buildings to provide for the extra number of exhibits to be entered. Thousands of people from nil parts of the Dominion of Canada have been in attendance during the fair, and r.ot a few from tho United States as well. Tho "Old Folks'* iu Engiaiul. A rich Londoner without a title, but. a city father, is taking his vacation here, lie is an exception to the typical Englishman, who would leave the stranger to burn up in tho hotel rather than hazard an acquaintance without credentials. Possibly tiie sound of his own cheerful voice is agreeable to him self. His maimer is a trifle patronizing, and his conversation something of the style of ex hortation, but he is intelligent and of benev olent opinions, and he has the grace to com mend American talent. Turning the leaves of The Century Maga zine which lie held, he said in an oratorical manner: "In these matters you quite outdo us—and as for speech making, America is far away beyond England." He wears on his finger a ring which belonged to Napoleon I, and was worn by him during his exile in St Helena. It is the head of Josephine in intag lio set around with diamonds, and an inside locket contains her hair, and it cost the pres ent owner £.500. The son is here at present, but has taken a shooting lodge for tho autumn, where the partridges are being raised in a poultry yard like chickens, and will be driven into the bush when the young man goes up to the country. He is evidently past 30, but his respectful deference to his father and the amiable relations existing between tho two furnish additional evidence to previous obser vations that at least the letter of the fifth commandment is in force In England. "The old folks," as a rule here are not the parties left "at home," and the element which is termed "Young America" in the United States is manifestly under subjugation in this country.—Tilbury (England) Cor. Cleveland Leader. A Bad Spell. A few mouths ago an old gentleman was seen nailing a notice on a fence on the south side of Austin avenue. A friend passing, said: "Why don't you have the notice put in the daily paper, where people can read it?" "Waal," said the old gentleman, "if I took it to the newspaper office them newspaper fel lers would get it spelled wrong, and then somebody would think I didn't have no edifi cation."
