ANOTHER VICTIM Wabash Clairvoyant Found a Credu lous Woman. Wabash. Ind., March 16. Another victim of clairvoyant TerroU, who fled from th3 city after a stay of two weeks has come to light. Augusta Schultz, a German girl, who came here recently, announced that she had placed $1,000 in Terroll's hands on the latter's promise that he would double her. money in four weeks. The confiding young woman called on Terroll a week ago and told him she had $950 in bank. He told her she was foolish not to have it earning something and suggested that he knew a way to make it earn a big profit without risk. On his advice she got the money and took it to him. He sealed it in an envelope and plac ing it on a string, hung it around the girl's neck, telling her not to open the envelope until a month from that day. The girl followed the instructions until she learned of the fraud perpe trated upon Mrs. Lee Porter, who lost $500, and opened the envelope and dis covered that her money was gone. No trace has been discovered of Ter roll. Collins to Bear Blame. Indianapolis,. March 16. In the op ening of the trial, in the United States district court, of Justus L.

Washington, March 16. During the discussion of the postoffice appropria tion bill in the house the recent re port of the postoffice department re garding congressional solicitation of clerk hire allowances and rental of quarters to the government was again JAMES M. GRIGGS. brought up. Mr. Griggs, of Georgia,' got into an argument with Mr. Cooper, of Wisconsin, as to the authorship of the document and insisted, over the protest of Mr. Cooper, that it was prepared under the direction of Gon. Bristow. He defended the committee, of which he is a member, in giving publicity to the report, sajing that the United States is too powerful and too great to convict any man by a suppression of the facts. He said the members of the house after threats to "tear the roof off the department" had turned tail and voted that the de partment should investigate the con gressmen. The senate passed the fortification appropriation bill after a three hours' discussion of the amendment authoriz ing the purchase of an experimental torpedo boat and the provision for the purchase of sites of defense works in the Hawaiian islands. The torpedo boat provision was stubbornly fought, but- the amendment suggested by the committee on appropriations was re tained. The Hawaiian provision which had been eliminated by the committee, was restored and the sum increased from $200,000 as fixed by the house, to $526,100. Several other bills were passed. One of these appro priates $1,000,000 for a public build ing at Atlanta, Ga. Gen. Wood's Case. Washington, March 16. The con duct of Gen.

BALFOUR MAY RESIGN Those Terrible Irish" Catch the Government Benches Xappinjr and Score Heavily. An Karly Dissolution of Parliament Is Foreshadowed by liesult of This Vote. London, March 1C. Premier Bal four's government has been defeated In the house of commons by the com bined Liberal and Nationalist vote. This reverse .vas due to the prohibi tion by Mr. Wyn'lham. chief secretary for Ireland, on the teaching of Gaelic in the junior grades of the Irish na tionalist schools. Mr. Balfour, though defeated by a majority of eleven on this question does not regard the vote as one of want of confidence and he will not resign on the account. His determination not to resign was strengthened by the fact that shortly after the foregoing defeat he was able to secure a majority of twenty-five. The failure of the government to carry the house with it on a question of purely administrative policy in its Irish department is generally admit ted to greatly weaken its already waning prestige with the country, al though it is not thought probable that any immediate development will en sue. In the house of commons itself to use the words of a prominent mem ber of the opposition, "all the artillery in the government arsenals would not make them surrender office." It is learned that Premier Balfour regards it as one of the essential prin ciples of his party to hold on to the reins of government for the present at any rate. What he may do after Easter still remains in doubt. The blow just administered makes the premier's task of holding his party together doubly difficult, and many supporters of the government frankly said that they favored an early disso lution of parliament rather than again undergo the humiliation experienced yesterday. "Those terrible Irish," as they are described for the moment by the Unionists, were entirely responsible for Mr. Balfour's defeat. On the ques tion of Catholic education, Monday night the Nationalists had voted with the Unionist government but even while so doing they ..were planning the jr Lf ORCHARD- Da tzs .r .. oi me conservatives. Yes terday afternoon the mine so Ingen iously laid was set off with a success that thrilled the country. The strat egy with which the whole coup was planned and the scenes that marked its culmination recalled the times when Gladstone and Parnell waged a titanic struggle in the same arena. An unusually short list of questions had brought on the business of the day nearly half an hour ahead of the usual time. Then languidly the house resolved itself into committee of sup ply to dicuss the vote for Irish edu cation which had already been de bated. Profound peace reigned and there was not a sign of the coming parliamentary storm except to the few initiated who keenly watched the whispered conference taking place be tween the Irish whips. John Red mond made a complaint about the pro hibition of Gaelic in the schools, but instead of a long speech which It would seem he had prepared, Judging by the volume of notes in his hand, the Irish leader said only a few words. Mr. Wyndham replied with equal brev ity and it was evident he was saving himself for a string of protests from other Irish members. No one rose to reply to Mr. Wynd ham, the Irish party for once utilizing silence as its deadliest weapon. Mr. Redmond had said there were to be no speeches and though the rank and file of Nationalists did not know the rea son, not having been admitted to the secret plan set on foot the previous evening by their leader 'and their chief whip, they obeyed implicitly. Discipline triumphed and not one word came from the Irish benches. The Liberals, too, sat silent though they were ignorant of the projected coup, and without a reply a division was inevitable. Only then did Mr. Wyndham and the government whips realize how deliberately they had been outwitted. It is learned that John Redmond and Sir Thomas Esmonde had plann ed the division for 3 o'clock and the bells therefor clanged out through the house at 2:55. In desperation the government sent messengers in cabs and with telegrams and to telephones, but without avail, for when the tellers of the vote returned the clerk of the house handed Sir Thomas Esmonde the coveted little slip of paper which is given to the winning side. In a second the members who had crowded in realized that the govern ment had been beaten and then there arose such a cheer as Westminster has not heard for many a day. Sev eral times Sir Thomas Esmonde tried to read out the figures but his voice was drowned in the uproar. Mr. Bal four who had been just in time to vote for the government, sat smiling grimly. Finally tnere was compara tive quiet, and Sir Thomas Esmonde read: "Ayes 141, noes 130." At this the storm of cheering broke out afresh. The government was defeated by eleven votes.
