A GREAT NEWSPAPER.
Our issue of yesterday, in which was
published the report of the St. Clair
Gibson breachof promise case, marked
an era in the journalistic, as the case
itself did in the legal annals of this
country. As one of the counsel engaged
upon the case remarked, it was the first
time that a jury in this city had been
asked to decide an issue of the kind. In
like manner it was the first time that a
legal report published by the press of
this city has extended over fourteen
columns, which for the most part con
sisted of solid minion. Further, we can
call to mind no instance in which so
much reading matter as yesterday's
paper contained has appeared in any
single issue of a local newspaper. Hun
dreds of extra copies were printed and
sold rapidly; so keen and so general
was the Interest manifested in this ex
traordinary case that at the present
time there are only a few remaining.
The report will appear in the weekly
edition of Monday next, with which Mr.
Soper and Mr. Hewett, the agents, will
be amply supplied. Some of our critics
of late have been sympathizing enough
to refer to the Pacific Commercial Ad
vertiser as a dying sheet. But the Ad
vertiser is not dead yet.

Following is the summary of the news
received by the Mariposa last evening :
lrlsb Home Rule
Gladstone addressed an audience of
4,000 persons in the Drill Hall, at Derby,
October 20th. He was supported by Sir
William Vernon Harcourt and Baron
Wolverton. Mr. Gladstone said that
their opponents were growing weaker,
while their own forces growing stronger.
He was accused of co-operating with
those whom he once denounced as march
ing with rapine and murder toward the
disintegration of the empire. All the
ODjections tnen presented naa passed
away. He did not believe that any Irish
member of Parliament now contemplated
or desired the dismemberment of the
empire. They wanted the union of
hearts, and not a undion on parchment
or paper. Why, he asked, should he be
accused of gross inconsistency because
he allied himself with Mr. Parnell and
the Irish party, who were acting on lines
of moderation, which assuredly would in
the end secure home rule?
He flatly denied that his course was
inconsistent. When told he had passed
passed coercion measures, he could only
cay that a measure such as was contested
at the latest session of Parliament had
never been passed while he was in office.
That measure was not aimed at the sup
pression of crime so much as at the
liberty of the press and the right of
public meeting, as its application proved.
The Act had been used in such a manner
ixa to painfully and flagrantly show that
its provisions were different from those
of any Act previously passed. It was
more subtle and piercing, and more fatal
to the liberty of the people than any bill
hitherto passed. Coercion had utterly
failed. Instead of trying to drive the
disease inward, he believed that the
liberals had found a plan which would,
by their home-rule scheme, solve the
long formidable problem.
It was said that Ireland consisted of
two nations. Italy was once in the same
condition, but the parties there coalesced
and formed one united kingdom. Why
should Ireland not do the same ? Glad
stone Baid he believed the people of
Ulster were simply laboring under a mis
understanding. They doubtless wanted
an assurance that the connection between
Ireland and England would be main
tained. It was an utter mistake to sup
pose that any action of the Liberal party
would have any other result. He be
lieved that a satisfactory arrangement
could be made by which Ulster would
be united with the rest of Ireland, and
that in the end all would give willing I

Cbnrcblll Denounces laIione.
Lord Randolph Churchill, in a speech
at Sunderland, October lytn, said ne

one man should have only one vote un

principal, a contingency unlikely to

his ideas on all subjects in the vaguest
manner. Gladstone spoKe ot aDoiisuing
land entail. If he meant simply refer
ence to the lives of children yet unborn,
he (Churchill) agreed with him, as did
probably the majority of the members
of Parliament ; but he was opposed to
more radical innovation. He thought
the protection question the subject for
mediation. The main reason that he
himself had not joined in the argument
was that he believed only low prices for
the necessities of ' life were compatible
with the ability of the Democratic Con
stitution. He favored bold legislation
in the direction of temperance, not on
moral, but on economic grounds. He
was strongly opposed to the disestab
lishment of the church, either in Eng
land or Scotland or Wales. Nothing but
unmitigated evil and disaster could pos
sibly result from the appropriation of
religious property for secular purposes.
Gladstone was silent on all the greatest
domestic questions, questions of reform
and retrenchment in the Finance De
partment, and Public Education. He
(Churchill) advocated the cause of tem
perance and free education as Conserva
tive measures. Unlike the Gladstonians,
the Unionists were prepared to deal
wTith those questions immediately. He
had yet to learn how a majority of one
hundred, when led by intelligence and
courage, could be successfully resisted
by a disorganized, vicious minority, even
if Gladstone succeeded in forcing a disso
lution and obtaining a majority. The
home-rule proposals should be fought to
the last grip, even to the abolition of the
Lords, thus certainly postponing those
vital reforms until at least 1891.
A Suyar Trust.
The New York " Sun " of October 18th
says that it was seml-officially announced
in Wall street yesterday that the forma
tion of a sugar trust, to control the pro
duction an i price of refined sugar practi
cally has been completed; that Henry
Havemeyer and John E. Searles, both of
Brooklyn, would be President and Gen
eral Manager, respectively, and that II.
S. Sursburg, F. C. Mathies and Mr.
Searles would be the Executive Commit
tee ; that several refineries in Brooklyn
and Boston have been ordered to shut
down, and that two Brooklyn refineries
shut down yesterday; that others would
follow this week; that New Orleans re
finers have consented to enter the com
bmation, but that certain renners in
Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore are
still out . The " Sun ' adds : ' ' It is said
that $15,000,000 in bonds and $50,000,000
in stock have been or will shortly be
Some 15,000 so-called socialists met
October 17th in St. Andrew's road, Lon
don, under the auspices of the Social
Democratic Federation, to protect against
the execution of the sentence which
hangs over the seven Chicago anarch
ists. The language used was more vio
lent than that which characterized the
Ferisbury meeting. The resolutions,
carried unanimously, were the same
An old man of feeble frame, but stento
rian voice, was introduced as a comrade
from Chicago. When asked his name,
he refused, saying: "I desire no per
sonal glory in trre matter." ne evi-

dently has been in Chicago, lhe an
archist journals of that city bulged out
of his pockets and under his arm. He
carried a copy of the appeal made by
Black on behalf cf the condemned men.
He also showed great familiarity with
the monstrous lies which have been
circulated about the trial, and also gets
off some original ones, which indicate
splendid powers of mendacity.
He said: "My blood boils when
think of the sufferings to which the
workingmen of Chicago have been sub-
jected in the hope that in their agony
they would peach' on their comrades.
They were imprisoned in what are called
sweet-boxes dark cells, five feet high
and four broad. The walls and beds are
attached by galvanic batteries, turned
on at the will of a turnkey. The hope
less prisoner can neither sleep nor rest
through secret windows powerful,many-
colored lights are turned on suddenly,
and the prisoner goes wild with fear.
Late at night scoundrelly Irish hirelings
are let in the cell to belabor the prisoner
with clubs until dawn, to be commenced
another night and continued till he ex
presses a willingness to testify to j
District Attorney what may have been
necessary to conviction."
Germany ana Russia.
The relations between Germany and
Russia are becoming more embittered
No mask-is now worn on either side. An
article in the " Kreuz Zeitung " candidly
warns Russians that the Germans
may favor a restoration of the ancient
Kingdom of Poland, consisting of the
present provinces of Russian Poland
thus forming a bulwark between the
aggressive Czardom and the rest of
Europe. - The "Kreuz Zeitung" con
tends that Prussian Poland will soon be
Germanized, while Russia has failed to
Russianize her provinces. The Poles,
the "Zeitung" says, ought to look to
the regeneration of their country in
Russia, relying on the support of Ger-
many. Diplomatic intercourse between

The Czar will return to St. Petersburg
on the 18th instant, and will go thence
to Moscow. The official expectancyT is
that he wTill denounce' the Berlin treaty,
claiming entire freedom on the part of
Russia to take her own course. Coinci
dent with proclaiming the treaty abro
gated the Russian Government, it is
thought, will endeavor to effect a treaty
with the Porte, resettling the Bulgarian
and Roumanian affair, the alternative
to the entente offered the Sultan being
Russian occupation of Armenia. This
scheme presumes that the Sultan will be
left isolated if Russia is not assailed in
the Balkan peninsula. It is believed

The Panama Canal.
A report was published by New York,
October 15th, to the effect that the
officers of the Panama Canal Company
on the isthmus were in a precarious
condition. According to the report there
is not much activity prevailing along the
line of the canal, except at two or three
stations. Although several shipments
of machinery and other materials have
been received recently, they are not
used, and remain exposed to the deterior
ating effects of the climate. The laborers
are greatly discontented, especially those
from Georgia, who are liable to make
trouble at any time. The sanitary con
dition along the line is bad, and the
yellow fever is epidemic among the
laborers, A reporter called at the office
of the Canal Company, and was informed
that the representatives in this city did

A dispatch from Paris, October 14th,
says: J. tie order relieving uenerai iiou-
langer from his command and placing
him under arrest directs that he be placed
under close arrest for thirty days. Dur
ing that time the Ministry, is to decide
whether he shall be deprived of his com
mand. The Radical members of the
Chamber of Deputies to-day decided to
make him a candidate for that body if he
resigned or was removed from his com
mand. Rumors have been persistently
circulated to-day that General Boulanger
has resigned his commission in the army.
At a meeting of the Budget Committee
to-day Cavagnac stated that General
Boulanger, in December last, ordered an
outlay of 8,125,000 francs for clothing for
the territorial reserves. This expendi
ture, Cavagnac said, had not been au
thorized by the Chamber of Deputies;
therefore it was illegal.

Much uneasiness is occasioned in Lon
don by the ever-increasing crowds which
gather daily in Trafalgar Square clam
oring for bread or work. The meetings
are always surrounded by the police and
all iossible precautions are taken to pre
vent a riot. The meetings are not or
ganized by the usual socialistic propa
gandists, but are composed, in great
measure at least, of laborers, homeless
and workless, of which at present there
are estimated to be over one hundred
thousand. Near midnight on October
17th a man was arrested for addressing a
meeting in St. Paul's churchylird, in
which he cursed the canons for keeping
the cathedral closed while his poor were
In the Lower House at Vienna, Octo
ber 14th, the Minister of Finance, Duna
jewski, announced that the budget for
1888 showed a deficit of 21 ,200,000 florins.
The additional expenditures arose from
the manufacture o'f new rifles. He hoped
to get a larger portion of the deficit from
funds in the treasury. He was confident
that no necessity would arise for an ap

The New York "Sun's" Washington
special, October 17th, says: Great sur
prise is occasioned at the Department of
State by the allegation of Canadian and
English officials that this country has
repeatedly disputed the Russian Gov
ernment's claim in Behring Sea, and
moreover, that the seal fisheries were
the cause of such dispute. At the State
Department no record of any difficulty'
regarding the seal fisheries with Russia
can be found.
The British ship Monarch, Captain
Corbett, from Manila, August 30th, for
New York, has been lost on Mindoro
Island, one of the Phillippines. The
Captain and three of the crew, named
Drews, Bedford and Crupp, were
drowned. The remainder of the crew
have arrived at Manila.
A special from Little Rock, Ark., of
October 20th, says: At a late hour the
report comes of a fight in Indian Terri
tory between vigilantes and outlaws, in
which fifteen men were killed or severe
ly injured. It is impossible to get the
facts to-night. ,
The gunboats sent out to search for
the British gunboat Wasp, which is sup

found nothing of the vessel.
