NO. 167 THE ACME OF ATROCITY Extraordinary Case of Firm Superstition AWFUL FATE OF A WOMAN The Unfortunate Held While the Husband Burned Her Superstition Predominated In the Treatment of a Simple Case—lt Looks Like Faith Cure WATERFORD, Ireland March 26.—An extraordinary case of murder, arising from superstition, was inquired into to day by the special court of Clonmel, twenty-five miles from here. •Ten persons were arraigned before the court charged with murdering a Mrs. Oleary. The prisoners included the wom an's husband and father, and the evidence showed that she was suffering from nerv ousness and bronchitis, and her husband, believing her to be bewitched, obtained a concoction from an herbist of the neigh borhood. While the other prisoners held tbe un fortunate woman in bed, he forced the concoction down her throat, Tho suffering woman was then held over a fire and dreadfully burned until she de clared she was not Clcary's wife. This torture was repeated on the following day, after which he knocked her down, ■tripped off her clothing, poured pararfine over her body, then lighted it, and the woman was burned to death in the pres ence of six male and two female rela tives. Cleary declared that he was not burning his wife, but that he was burning a witch, and that she would disappear up the chimney. The husband collected the charred remains and buried them. The prisoners, who were remanded, nar rowly escaped lynching, and had to be removed to jail under the escort of a strong force of constables. THE PAROCHIAL SCHOOLS Pint Step In the Fight In the Manitoba Legislature ST. PAUL, Minn., March 26.—A Winni peg, Manitoba, special to the Pioneer Press says: The first step in the renewed fight over parochial schools in Manitoba began in the legislature this afternoon, when the full message was presented from the Dominion Government at Ottawa, order ing the Manitoba legislature to give the Catholics their rights as they existed be fore the abolition of parochial schools in 1890. d The reading of the Ottawa message oc cupied over an hour and, all verbiage re moved, it amounts to the request as above stated. Mr. Martin, a French Catholic, member of the Legislature, urged that the Government should take immediate ac tion, but Premier Grecnway protested, saying the message should be printed in order that all members might know with what they were dealing. Here the matter rested and the discussion will now proba bly not take place until Thursday. Mean while the situation grows more compli cated. the Catholics and their friends say that Greenway anil his followers, if they reject the order from Ottawa, are reject ing an order signed by Her Majesty, the Queen, and such act would he equivalent to open rebellion. They say they cannot conceive how the Dominion Government could do otherwise than make the formal request they have m de, as they were bound, so far as lay in their power, to take immediate action upon the de cision of the highest court and see tnat the grievances of Her Majesty's subjects of the Roman Catholic faith in Manitoba received redress at the earliest possible moment. The Greenway government con tends, on the other hand, that the pres ent school law is satisfactory to many Catholics if it were not for the agita tion by the priests of the church. They say that if Manitoba is coerced into recre ating a dual system, dualism both in lan guage and eduation will be extended to the territories as well, and thus there would be perpetuated in the West the evils which have caused dissatisfaction and stagnation in the province. Among the members of the Government side to night it seems to be a matter of opinion that the remedial order will be disposed of during the week and without any great amount of speaking. Premier Greenway, when spoken to on the mutter, said the length of the discussion would depend upon the amount individual members wanted to talk. Premier Greenway denies that lie will compromise the matter by introducing a bill making the schools en tirely secular. TO GO THROUGH THE TRAP A Colored Woman to Be Executed In Chicago CHICAGO.

THEY MUST PAY TRIBUTE Decision Rendered by the Venezuelan Commission Principle Involved In the Decree Is of CJreat Importance to Owners of Vessels WASHINGTON, March 26.-After many months of deliberation the Venezuelan commission today concluded its labors and announced its decision, being a judg ment in favor of citizens of the United States for $143,500. about one-third the amount of the claims. Of the total award the Venezuelan Steam Transportation Company of New York is to receive $141,500 iv American gold with interest, and Captain A. G. Post, Jacob J. Muurinus und David J. Sturgis are to re ceive each $300 with interest. The claim of Cornelius J. Brinkerhof, master of the San Francisco, was the only one ilisallowed. The claims date back to 1871, when in the course of a revolution in Venezuela three of the vessels of an American cor poration were seized by the Venezuelans on either side in the controversy and were much damaged by use in war. The ships were finally recovered, one through the good office of the commanders of a British warship and the other two by the com mander of the United States Ship Shaw mut. The claim also included items based on the refusal of the vipto.ious revolutionary government to allow the company to ex ercise the franchise it had to navigate Venezuelan waters, and also items for the imprisonment of the masters of the seized vessels. The principle involved in the judgment rendered today is of great interest to the countries of Central and South America, which are subject to revolution, for it amounts to a declaration that such coun tries are responsible for acts of insurgents aguinst the rights and properties of for eigners, even if these acts are beyond their control. Senor Andrade, the Venezuelan repre sentative of the committee, has given notice that he will file a dissenting opin ion in the case.

NEW YORK, March 28.—Health Officer Doty has received no reply officially to the letter Collector Kilbreth and Captain Watkins in relation to the landing of W. K. Car'isle, who was transferred to the revenue cutter Hudson prior to a visit of the health officer aboard the steamer Paris. Dr. Doty, his secretary said, was very loth to criticise the action of Secre tary Carlisle or Kilbreth. This violation of the quarantine law was so flagrant he was compelled to take cognizance. Mr. Carlisle, when questioned, said if there had been any violation of the local quarantine laws he was ignorant of It. His father reached the ship when she was lying to, at anchor, and coming aboard waited about half an hour for him to dress. As soon as he was ready he left the ship and came up the harbor in tbe cutter with the Secretary, Mr. Ham lin, and a customs officer, before whom he made his customs declaration. One singular feature of the matter, Wil liam Carlisle thought, was the fact the New York weighed her anchor and im mediately followed the cutter to her dock, There certainly was not sufficient time between his leaving the ship and tier weighing anchor for the quarantine offi cer to make any examination, it any were made, was concluded before he left the ship. A prominent official, in speaking of the matter, said that if the Secretary had violated any law, it had been done hundreds of times before. It was a very common thing for passengers t) be met by friends and come with CHINA A 5 IT WILL BE | them i nto the city witnout any exami nation. At tbe most, there could not I have been more than a technical violation of the law.

May you look upon this >S .1 token of gratitude of deeds recorded iv history which were brought to a conclusion twenty-five years ago. I 'Let us, comrades, shout hurrah for His Serene Highness, Prince Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg." Bismarck, in reply, said: "Will Your Majesty permit me to lay at your feet, my humblest thanks. My mili tary position towards Your Majesty will not allow me to further express my feel ings. I thank Your Majesty." Prince Bismarck, who was deeply moved, then re-seated himself in Ilia carriage and the Emperor oruered the troops to march past tbe Prince's carriage. At the end of this ceremony Prince Bis marck thanked the Enip :or- for his kind ness and courtesy and kissed the Emper or's hand. After this the Prince returned to the castle, stood on tbe terrace, from which he addressed the delegation yester day, and the Emperor led the curassier i to the front of the ct s le. His Majesty voted three cheers for Prince Bismarck, at I lie conclusion of which a response was given by the troops and people. Tbe Emperor then, amid renewed cheers, grasped Prince Bismarck's hand.
