THE LONDON TIMES COLLAPSE.
\/ *1 "mm v i ,.T.^^*gE John Walter, Chief Proprietor of the Paper. The London Times, which has been the victim of the infamous Pigott in its use of the forged Parnell letters, and has suffered incalculably in prestige on this account, is owned by a company,of which John Walter is the leading member. This gentleman is a grandson of the John Walter who pub lished the first number of the Times, Janu ary 1, 1788, and had previously during three years issued the Daily Universal Reg ister, its immediate ancestor. John Walter the Second, continued the publication of the Times with increasing enter prise and success. His successor meets stronger competition and the paper is not as supreme as in its best days. Its resources and ability are still superior, but its course on the Irish question bad impaired its dignity and influence before the complete collapse of its charges against Mr. Parnell. John Walter was born in London, in 1818. He received his preparatory educa tion at Eton, and was graduated in honors at Exeter college, Oxford. In 1843 he was made Master of Arts, and in 1847 he was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn. Since that year he has been a member of almost every Parliament elected. His views are moderate, perhaps best described by the now little used term. Liberal Conservative Proposed Increase of War Vessels. London, March 7.—In the House of Commons to-day Lord George Hamilton, first Lord Admiralty, stated that the gov ernment proposed to build eight first-class men-of-war of 14.000 tons each, and two of 9,000 tons, nine fifst-lass cruisers, twenty nine small cruisers, four of the Pandora type of cruisers, and seventeen of the sharp shooter type of torpedo vessels. The total tonnage of all these vessels will be 319,000, and the total cost £21,500,000. Lord George Hamilton asked that £10,000,000 be appropriated from the consolidated fund for the proposed increase of the navy, and that the remainder of the amount required be provided for in ordinary esti mates. He promised the admiralty's pro gramme wonld be executed within four and a half years. EDITOR C. E. BUCKLE. The illunderer ot the "Thunderer." The work of the Special Commission sit ting in London has shown that the snicide Pigott was the forger of the Parnell letters, and that the Times erred disastrously in judgment or worse. Previous to the Buckle administration that newspaper had the reputation of being fair and "level headed." Its opinions were moderate, as its news was trustworthy, and stated with gentlemanly tone and expression. Those who have read the great newspaper of late years have noticed that its anger against the Irish party has impaired its dignity both in its editorial and reportorial columns. While probably regretting the change, the habitual reader of the Times had the confidence that its charges against Mr. Parnell would be made good. This is why the compelled admissions, retrac tions and apologies of the oracular news paper are particularly injurious to it. Rated so high it falls so low! The scholarly Mr. Buckle was at the helm when the Times ship struck the rocks. To this bad eminence has a man of great ability and attainments fallen. Beautitul Presents to Mrs. Harrison. Washington, March 7.—A pretty scene was enacted in Mrs. Harrison's private apartments this afternoon, the occasion being the presentation to her of an elegant evening reception robe by the Gen. Lyon's Woman's Relief Corps of Pc. Louis. The presentation was made at the request of the association by Mrs. Charncey I. Filley, president of the woman's executive com mittee of the Mississippi Valley Sanitary Fair. In addition to the dress there was , also presented to Mrs. Harrison from the Relief Corps a pair of white slippers deco rated with small sprays of white lilacs, hand painted, and the artist who painted the dress and slippers presented to Mrs. Harrison, on her own behalf, a richly bound copy of the Bible, with a hand somely adorned cushion. Government Printer. Washington, March 7.—The New York delegation has decided to ask that A. R Hart, of New York, be nominated for public printer, and the Iowa delegation will pnsh Ex-Gov. Stone forcommiseioner of the general land office. Newspaper Enterprise. Denver, Col., March 7.—The Rocky Mountain News to-day bought one of the finest corners in the city for $125,000. A mammoth newspaper office will be erected thereon which will rival anything of the kind in New York or Chicago. a CHARITABLE INSTITUTIONS. Delicate Question in Regard to th9 District of Colombia. Washington, March 10.—The reply of the commissioners of the District of Colum bia to Senator Edmunds resolution asking information concerning the exclusion of persons from any charitable institution in tne District on account of race, color or previous condition of servitude, has been received. Many if not all of these institu tions have received aid from Congress, which was one reason why the inquiry was made. The replies show in a great major ity of cases that no discrimination was made, but several are either not so clear or admit that colored applicants are not ad mitted. Sister Clara, of St. Rose's indus trial school, says: "It would not be sup posed that we could mix them with our young girls, who are mostly orphans from good families." Mrs. J. Curtis Smith, of the Washington hospital for foundlings, says no colored applicants have been pre sented, but adds: "We have to employ a number of wet nurses for nursing children, and while we regret the fact that any race prejudice should exist, yet we are com pelled to recognize it as a fact, and it isap parent that the necessary help could not be had if it should be attempted to |keep white and colored children in the same wardB." Sister Mary Vincent, of St. Vincent Orphan Asylum, writes : "This institution is for white children." St. Ann Infant Asylum says : "Sister Agnes receives in fants and children from the public authori ties without distinction, bat to receive all who present themselves at onr door, par ticularly colored, would be an utter im possibility." The Sisters of the Holy Cross, of St. Joseph's Asylum, in reply says- "Our asylum is for male orphans, and none are excluded but colored. We find, from experience, that white boys cannot be mixed with colored." US HENRI LECARON. The Spy in the Employment of the British Government. The story of Pigott's forgeries and sui cide, while more sensational than that of LeCaron, a witness who preceded him belore the Special Commission in London, is not nearly as fascinating as the career of this man. Pigott was a clnmsy bungler in comparison with LeCaron, who wonld make an excellent snbject for a novel in the bands of a master in handling compli cated plots. LeCaron's revelations, hap pily for the Parnell case, preceded the con fession, flight and death of Piggott, which obscured, to the vision of most people, their power, regarded by themselves to prejudice the Irish cause. LeCaron's real name, it seems, is Beach. He has lived in this country since 1861, and has had the unobstructed opportunity, as he says, to know the secret business of the Clan-na-Gael. He claims to have had interviews with Mr. Parnell in London, in 1881, when the great Parliamentary lepder, he says, impressed him with the necessity for a good understanding between Irishmen who advocated the use of physical force against England and those who work to promote national objects by assisting the party led by Mr. Parnell. LeCaron is a graduate in the class of 1872, of the Detroit Medical College, and has kept drag stores in varions places. He has travelled also for a drag house, and practiced medicine in the State of Illinois. Other parts played in his remarkable career have been those of a Fenian in Can ada in 1865, "organizer," Nationalist, etc. Oar pictare of the spy is an accurate one, and is obviously that of a very adroit scoundrel. Severe Storm. London, March 8. —A fearful storm has been raging in the sooth of Russia for three days and the vessels in the Black Sea ports are unable to proceed. Railway traffic in a part of Austria is stopped. London, March 8.—A thaw and heavy rains have caused serions floods in the mid lands in the west of England. Numerous fatalities are reported. t* 2 f 'ii I AM# i V l Ë * y£ ^°^SS;/=/r£5SM f RICHARD PIGOTT. The Irish Judas—-Forger---Suicide. The sensational developments of the Special Commiseion sitting in London cul minate in the flight and death by his own hand, at Madrid, of Richard Pigott, who, according to a statement made by himself, forged the letters made to implicate Mr. Parnell in the Phoenix Park murders. What is known of Pigott's career shows that early ih life he wae a newspaper man in Dublin. Twenty-five years ago he owned the Irishmans aad the Flag of Ireland two revolutionary jonrnala, and a periodi cal family paper. He continued to publish the Irishman after the Flag of Ireland had been dead a long time—until the appear ance of United Ireland, edited by William O'Brien and the organ of the movement headed by Mr. Parnell. Pigott had been going down hill for a good many years pre vious to that time, financially and in his relations with the Irish leaders. Suspi cion rested upon him with the first produc tion of the forged letters. The man whose miserable ending is chronicled had good ability, writing with facility and force. Hie friends, if he has any, will be able to find no better excuse for his treachery than the temptation in volved in the financial misfortunes which overtook him. A In to to to A to for son the 3 of of in or of a 73 ■W*, u w MILAN, THE FIRST. The Profligate Ex-Sovereign of Servia. Milan I„ ex-King of Servia, was born August 22,1854. He was the sou of Milos Obreuovic and succeeded to the throne as Prince Milan Obrenovic IV., and was con firmed by the election of the Servian Na tional Assembly, after the assassination of his ancle, Prince Michael Obrenovic III., on June 10,1868. He was crowned Prince of Belgrade and assumed the government on August 22,1872, aud was proclaimed King on March 6,1882. King Milan was married on October 17, 1874, to Natalie, daughter of Col. Kescbko, of the Russian Imperial Gnard. The Queen was born in 1859, and was divorced from her royal hnsband on October 24,1888. The accession of Alexander 1, her son, in volves her return from exile. Their only offspring is a son, Alexander, the new king, who was born on Angnst 14,1876. Two wars make Milan's reign memorable. Twelve years ago he attacked Turkey, when the intervention of Russia saved his Principality from being reabsorbed by the victorions power. Hardly three years have passed since Milan was defeated in a war with Bulgaria. The ex-King is a profligate and a worthless character. A Daughter of Senator Stanford Seek ing a Divorce. Chicago, March 12. —Special from Nor walk, Conn.: Mrs. Thomas B. Gunning, daughter of Leland Stanford, of California, one of the most estimable ladies here, has been troubled beyond measure by the con duct of her husband, who, if current re ports be trne, has not only squandered her money bat divided his attention with other women. She has applied to the Supreme Court for a divorce. In the meantime her hnsbaDd bas made use of her signature upon check s for large amounts and with the fonds thus obtained, extended his outside performance», going to Canada, to be in fashion. Having squan dered all be returned like the prodigal son, to beg his wife's pardon. His visit was a flying one, bnt long enough for him to learn Mrs. Conning wonld agree to no reconciliation. Then Gunning went to South America where he now is. It is said he got away with over half-mil lion of his wife's money before she began to realize the enormity of his operations. Then she pat her foot squarely down. In court last Friday she easily made it appar ent that her case was j ust and an absolute divorce was granted. 5? A?
