?J. H. EBTILL, Editor nml Proprietor.} CARLISLE ON POLITICS. A LOUISVILLE PAPES INTERVIEWS THE EX-SPEAKER. He Explains that He Would Accept a United States Senatorship if Offered Him - A Belief that Tariff Taxes Will Now he Reduced -Pratee for the President. Louisville, Ky., May 3.—Hon. John G. Carlilse arrived lie re yesterday from his home in Covington. He comes to attend the State Democratic Convention, of which ho will be chairman. Ho is accompanied by Mrs. Carlisle. The Courier-Journal to-day publishes an interesting interview with him. Mr. Carlisle spoke freely and showed no hesitation in communicating the infor mation desired. To a question as to whether he would be a candidate for the United States Senate to succeed Mr. Beck, he re plied: “My relations, or rather my appa rent relations, to the contest have not been satisfactory to me for some time, and I have intended to make a public statement, but no proper occasion has been presented, and con sequently I have said nothing. WOULU ACCEPT IF ELECTED. “Two or three months ago, [ said, in sub stance, that although not a , candidate for the office, I would accept it if elected by the legislature. This was regarded as an an nouncement of my candidacy. I am glad of this opportunity to correct that impres sion. I have 110 desire to go to the Senate, and do not w ant my name considered in connection w-itli the position. If lam to remain in public life at all a seat in the House of Kepresenatives is entirely satis factory to me, and I can serve the people there at least as well as in the Senate.” TARIFF TAXES. As to the prospect for a reduction of the tariff taxes by the next Congress, Mr. Car lisle said: “I can only give you my opinion so far as the House is concerned. The Sen ate being a Republican body, i:o one can say with accuracy what it will do. I believe the next House will unquestionably pass a bill to reduce very materially the customs duties. Ido not, however, expect to see the passage of such a bill as the revenue reform Democrats would like to have, but I think there will be a substantial reduction. You see we have now arrived at a point in the tariff agitation where a reduction of taxa tion is absolutely necessary. The large and growing Treasury surplus makes it neces sary. NO POSSIBLE ESCAPE. “There is no possible way to escape it. All mrthods proposed in that direction are for the most part absurdities. The sentiment for a reduction of tho tariff is growing steadily, especially in the Northwest. Now, coupling this growing sentiment with an absolute necessity for a reduction, I think it requires but little power of political prophecy to assert with confidence that a reduction must come. A bill reducing the tariff must be passed, however, with the help of Republican votes. The deflection in our ranks caused by Mr. Randall and other protectionists will put it out of the power of the Democrats to pass a tariff revision bill, unless they arc aided by leveauo reformers from the Republican ranks. ENOUGH VOTES OBTAINABLE. “It will not be difficult to obtain a suffi cient number of recruits, in my opinion. The Republicans in the West and Northwest are getting more nervous on the tariff ques tion. In the Forty-eighth Congress all the Republican members except one voted for the Morrison bill. The gentleman who failed to vote for us was not re-elected. At the last Congress we got all but ono of the Minnesota members. In the next Congress the Democrats have three members from Minnesota. This indicates the growth of revenue reform. A Republican Senator said to me a short time ago that the next Congress must do something toward reduc ing the tariff or there would be an opeu re volt on the part of the people. INTERNAL TAXES. “I think there will lie no repeal of inter nal taxes, and there certainly ought not to lie. Yet it might occur in efforts to get through a bill reducing tho tariff that some compromises should lie made. Under the circumstances, with tho division of opinion mining the Democratic Representatives, a compromise that was fair would be honor able. In such a state of tho case the tobac co tax might be repealed. I see Senator Sherman talks about reducing the tobacco tax. In my opinion if that taxis disturbed it ought to be repealed. It is now Sc. per pound, and it would look like trilfliug about small things to simply reduce it one-half or one-third. FAVORS ABOLISHING IT. “It may as well be wiped out entirely. It to true that the tax yields an annual revenue of nearly $30,000,000, hut in order to get a. similar reduction in the customs list it might, be well to let the tax on tobacco go. You will find that these reform Republicans of wnom I spoke a moment ago are all op posed to repealing internal revenue taxes.” 1 presume,” sakl the reporter, “that President Cleveland’s administration is now old enough for an observer to form an esti mate of it. I would bo glad to know what you think of it?” NAUGHT SAVE PRAISE. "President Cleveland,” said Mr. Carlisle, 'has given to the country a healthy, strong and clean administration. He has’aetod as no honestly believed for the best interests of tlie country nd his party. He lias made us a good President. I think he is the most in dustrious man I ever saw. Ho certainly works too hard. President Cleveland desires nothing more than the approval of his own conscience and the just commendation of the Contl 7- These lie cannot fail to have.” * there not some just cause of complaint concerning his somewhat .supercilious treat of men who hold office under him?” Rightly understood there is not. In I resident Cleveland's onso some little time must be allowed to have him accustom him* *cif to his surroundings." GOOD PRESIDENTIAL TIMBER. ,' ’There is another thing 1 want to say noout President Cleveland. With him ns a candidate for re-election New England would lie doubtful. You would he astonished p , tho number of business men in tho Republican party in Massachusetts mid all New England who are for President Clcve laml. When I was in Boston some time ago I was amazed to learn that the Republican ““>*■ of several clubs were practically R"lid for President Cleveland. There is nri o.iier good thing, too, about those mug wumps. They are nearly all tariff refo-in *’?.■ I* they are property cultivated thoy "ill not lie long getting ill the Democratic whore they will lie mugwumps no Fears of Lynching.

Considerable Damage to Property But no Loss of Life Reported. Eau Claire, Wis., May 3.—One of the worst hurricanes, unaccompanied by rain, ever known in this section prevailed here all day yesterday, filling the air with dense clouds of dust. Considerable damage was (lone in the city by demolishing plate glass fronts and signs, and in several instances the wind partially unroofing houses. In the town of [aldington a dwelling and barn were completely demolished. The loss in this vicinity when fully reported will lie consider 4 hie. The water in Chippewa river is rising rapidly.

A Trusty Uses His Key to Gain the Outer World. Worcester, Mass., May 3.—Six men es caped from the county jail here this morn ing. George A. Barton, who was serving a term for polygamy, had been trusted to work in the corridors and cells, and had the cell key during the day. Yesterday ho had a fight with George French, and both of them were put in solitary confinement in a cell in which was also another man. The fight was part of a plot. The three men, by use of Barton’s key, which had been con cealed in one of the solitary cells, opened the doors and concealed themselves, and at mid night when Fred A. Hammond visited the cell they bound and gagged and locked him in the cell. With Barton’s key three other prisoners were let out. Thoy then went to the guard room and secured a “jimmy” and jnckserew which was kept in the museum and returned to the solitary cell where they could work without being heard. They pried the bars of a grated window 7 1-2 inches apart and got into a passage, where they tore the casing from the door and entered the blacksmith shop. Here they attacked another grated window, pried the bars apart and got into the yard and over the fence and made their escape. The watchman was found at 4:45 o’clock. He is not much injured. CAMDEN’g SLIM CHANCES. The Vote in the Two Houses Shows No Increase in His Strength. Charleston, W. Va., May 3.—The Sen ate and lower house balloted separately to day for United States Senator.

Tar bell, a laborer of Lyons, drove to a farm house three miles from Vienna with his dying wife yesterday, who, he said, had been assassinated while sitting beside him in the buggy, holding her baby to her breast.

An Insincere Motion that, the Paper’s Breach of Privilege ho Taken Notice Of Picked Up bv the Assailed Irish Leader The Government not so Anxious to Proceed. London, May 3.—The home rule agita tion has been organized throughout the west. The Earl of lioseborry is announced to speak at Plymouth on May 30 in favor of the movement. James Stautsfeld, ex- President of the Local Government Board, will malic a home rule speech at Newton Abbott June 4. Messrs. Wolverton and Sexton will sj>eak at the meeting iu favor of the Gladstone policy at Exeter Juno 11. One Gladstone Liberal, Hon. Frederick Stephen Archibald Hanbury Tracy, voted witu tiro government last night to enforce tile cloture rule. Thirty-throe Liberal Unionists did likewise. A BREACH OF PRIVILEGE. Charles Edward Lewis, Conservative, member for North Antrim, in the House of Commons this afternoon called the House’s attention to the breach of privileges committed by the Timex in an article charging John Dillon with having told a falsehood in his denial of complicity with Sheridan. In this article the Timex declares that “Mr. Dillon, in his denial, had presented to Parliament a tissue of Action he had never taken the trouble to examine. Sheridan was simultaneously an organizer of murderous associations and a close companion of the leaders of constitu tional agitations. Mr. Dillon,” the Times continues, ‘ ‘homever convenient his memory, can hardly have sueceded in entirely forget ting their personal relations. What con fidence can now lie reposed in his disclaimers which show the best of the Parneilite party to bo destitute of that quality which English men prize above all othes's, an indispensible foundation of character?” AN INQUIRY MOVED. Mr. Lewis continued as follows. “Those wholesale charges of lying against Mr. Dillon constitute a distinct broach of privi lege. I move that the House take notice of them. ” Philip Albert Muntz, another Conserva tive, seconded Mr. Lewis’ motion. Speaker Peel, answering Mi - . Dillon, said that if the House decided that the article quoted was a breach of privilege a motion could be made calling the offenders to the bar to answer for their conduct. \V. H. Smith, First Lord of the Treasury, on behalf of the government, moved that the House adjourn in order that n-cations of fact might be argued. ' DILLON’S FIERY OUTBURST. Mr. Dillon said he desired to have the question brought to an issue right off. He denied the right of Mr. Lewis taking the course of putting him on the defensive until hie accuser was brought to the bar of the House When the publisher of the Times stood at the bar lie (Mr. Dillon) would prove ■ him as base and cowardly a liar as ever existed. [Parnellite cheers.] Mr. Sexton said the Irish party had been challenged much lately, and been taunted with not taking up the challenge. Now they took it up and insisted upon an inquiry by the House. [Parnellitecheers.] The House should let assailed members have an inquiry by committee. “Then,” said Mr. Sexton, “let the Times bring forward its battalions of forgers and bare. The Irish members will prove that they have been subjected to a system of moral assassination. They will be able to fully justify themselves.” [Par nellite cheers.] SIR HARCOURT POINTS OUT THE AIM. Sir Williarn Vernon Haroourt said that though ostensibly Mr. Lewis’ motion was against the Times , it was in reality raised for the purpose of attacking Mr. Dillon and was a covert method of accusation by one section of the members of the House against another. Yet when the Irish members asked for an instant opportunity of meeting the charges, it was sought by the govern ment to adjourn the Houso. Mr. Holmes, Attorney General for Ire laud, denied that the motion was made with the connivance of the government. Ho had never heard of the motion until ft Was made. On behalf of the government he disclaimed all intention of postponing the debate for party purposes. THE TIME TOO SHORT. “If the publisher of the Times was at once calleu to the bar of the House, the House would Iks unablo to hear evidence in support of the charge and would be re quired to decide the question off-handed.” [Cheers.] Mr. Gladstone opposed the motion to ad journ. He said Mr. Dillon had been charged with having stilted a deliberate falsehood while addressing the House. If anything constituted a breach of privilege this was a breach. The parties accused demanded a trial. It was impossible that the House could resist this demand. It had always been the custom for the House to proceed to deal without delay with motions relating to a breach of privilege, and afterward, in special cases, appointing a select committee of inquiry. A division was then taken on the motion to adjourn, resulting in u vote of 313 in l’avor of the motion ami ) 14 against it. Mr. Smith moved that on Thursday the House resume consideration of the question. Mr. Sexton moved that it be taken up to morrow. Mr. Dillon demanded to know whether the editor of the '/'imex would be brought to the liar of the House. Mr. Smith could only say that the usual course would lie followed. It was then agreed to take the question up again to morrow. ALL IN DOUBT. The closo of to-niirht’s debate in the House of Commons on the breach of privileges left all sides in doubt as to tomorrow's develop ments Mr. Lev/is brought forward tlio question against the advise of the Cousorva tivc whips, who warned him that it might lead to great delay in the progress of the crimes bill. Tho Ministerialists would like to have a committee of inquiry appointed, but foreseeing that the debate would hlo"k the crimes bill, they are reaily to let the question drop. The Ministers had a conference to-night, with Attorney General Webster and Solicitor (fiark on the question whether the govern ment could declare to-morrow that there had Ixxm no broach, and that tho matter therefore was at an end. If Mr. Hmith should announce that no breach of privilege has occurred, Mr. Gladston i is expected to apiieal to the Speaker to decide to the con trary and order that the publisher of tho Times must avow his error and apologize. Whatever luippens the Fame Hites foel con fident of scoring a triumph. A UNIONIST MASS MEETING. A mass meeting of Unionists was hold at St. James Hall this morning. Admission was by ticket only. Homo rutcr* wore ex cluded. Maj. Saundorson, speaking on tho resolution affirming the n'—it-sMry of u definite public disproof by the Parnolute* of tho charges that they associate with mur derers, said be hoped that Mvksix Labouchre and Conylieare, when tho crimes bill passed, would carry outthoir throat to goto Ireland to preach seditiou. They would then have to perform the only useful work of their lives, breaking stones and picking oakum. The resolution was carried with enthusiasm. Mr, Gladstone, in a letter asking to Ik - ex cused from at tending a meeting in favor of the anti-vaccination movement gives as one of his reasons the statement that lie is busily engaged opposing compulsory iuuoc uiation of the whole Irish nation v itli the coercion bill. BIIENNON GETS A VERDICT. The trial of the suit of St. John llrennon against William Ridgeway, publisher, for libel in accusing the plaintiff of being a Fe nian and former ally of the Invincibles, was continued to-day. Tho counsel for Mr. Ridgeway said that bo was unable to call witnesses who could prove his charges, be cause in disclosing tho name of the writer of the black pamphlet, in which the charges were made, it would endanger his life. Neither could he cal) tho detective from whom ho had obtainod tiie information, because it would involve tho disclosure of secrets of the profession. The plaint iff had been brought into court ns a stalking horse for others who dared not appear. The counsel declared that the black pamphlet was writ ten by a Fenian whose destruction would lie certain if. his name became known. Mr. Brennon’s evidence showed that he had as sociated with and assisted the worst dyna miters in Paris. The counsel held this to have proved tho case against him. The Judge, in charging tho jury, said that the defendant had not proved justification. The jury returned a verdict tor tho plaintiff, awarding him £5OO damages. CHAMBERLAIN AT GLASGOW. Glasgow, May 3.—Joseph Chamberlain, in a spooch to-day said he would willingly welcome Mr. Gladstone and his followers back to “the old liberal paths.” He pro tested that the new heresy (home rule for Ireland) was not ancient lilxwnlism, but the doctrine.- of a sect whose chief dogma was the infallibility of their political Pope. CHAMBERLAIN ON TARNELL. Mr. Chamberlain, speaking at the Unionist meeting at Glasgow, said the enthusiasm dis played convinced him of the growth of the Unionists. Although he had paid little atten tion to threats that he would be received with hooting, he confessed that lie had not expected such welcome as ho had received everywhere. Referring to the Par nellites, he admitted that he had advised that they lie taken into the council of the government, but that, he said, was be fore Farnell rested under the burden of the present imputation. No man of honor could be content to meet such an imputation with a simple denial. The Times was a journal which throughout its career had never for sensational purposes brought an accusation against any man, but if Mr. Parnell shrank from taking up the challenge and compelling the Times to give its proofs, then every impartial, intel ligent man would feel’ that Mr. Par nell had put himself in a po sition which made him no longer a safe and proper ally for English statesmen. [Cheers.] After repeating tho complaint thut the Gladstonians refused to meet the Unionists, he concluded, “Mr. Gladstone by one word eoukl unite the Liberals to-morrow, but unless that word is spoken soon it will be too late.” DRAINAGE IN IRELAND. Dublin, May 3.—The Royal Commission on Drainage has recommended the exjxsndi ture of £1,825,000 in improving the river Shannon and £109,000 in improving the Bonn. RUSSIA’B NIHILISTS. Tho Prisoners Recently Convicted of Rare Intelligence. St. Petersburg, May B.—One of the persons who have just been convicted of plotting against the Czar is a student named Oulianoff, son of a high Russian official. During his trial he displayed tho highest in telligence, and maintained a most dignified bearing. Entering into a minute scientific dispute with Feodoroff, the renowned chemist, ho compelled tho latter to acknowl edge that tho prisoner was in the right and he himself In the wrong. At tho final sit ting Oulianoff made a brilliant speech. He declared that neither lie nor his companions feared death. Ho could imagine nothing more sublime than to die in an endeavor to deliver tlio unfortunate Russian people. Hundreds of young men would imitate nim until tho Can l would be compelled to change his despotic system. Tho prisoners, with one exception, are all intelligent, gentle manly, and oi good families. One said that he, had intended to murder the Czar with a revolver, but afterward thought that bombs would bo better. POLICE ROASTED ALIVE. London, May B—Advices from St.. Peters burg states that on April 3fl a Nihilist set fire to a police station in that city and that eight men perished, while nineteen others were more or less injured.

ANOTHER BATCH OF FISHERY CORRESPONDENCE. Canada’s Piscatorial Minister Armed With a Bulky Volume on the Sub ject of Contention- Secretary Bay ard’s Proposals for Arriving at a Settlement of the Voxod Question. Ottawa, Oxt., May 3. —The Minister of Fisheries brought down the fishery corre spondence this afternoon. It is a bulky vol ume. Much of the correspondence has al ready appeared and it is only the later dis patches which are of public interest. Fol lowing the recent negotiations for a settle ment of the dilflcultias, it appears that on Dec. 3 last, Mr. Phelps, United States Min ister at London, transmitted to the imperial government a copy of an outline for the pro posed ad interim arrangement, between the two governments on tiiis subject, which had been prepared by Secretary Bayard. A MIXED COMMISSION PROPOSED. After reciting the differences which had arisen in regard to the treaty of 1818 Secre tary Bayard proposed a mixed commission for the following purposes: 1. To agree upon and establish, by societies of lines limits which shall separate the exclusive from the common right of fishing on the coast and in the adjacent water of the British North American colonies, in con formity wwu the first article of the conven tion of 1818, except that bays and harbors from which American fishermen are in the future to bo excluded, save for purposes for which entrance into bays is permitted by said article, are hereby agreed to be taken to be such 1 ays and harbors as are ten or less than ten miles in width, and a distance of three miles from such bays and harbors shall bo measured from a straight line drawn across the bay, in the part nearest the entrance, at the first point where the width dot's not exceed ten miles, said lines to bo regularly numbered and also clearly marked on charts prepared in duplicate for the purpose. FIXING REGULATIONS. 2. To agree upon and establish such regulations as may be necessary and proper to secure to fishermen of the United States the privilege of entering liays and hurlxirs for the purpose of shelter and of repairing damages therein, of purchasing wood and or obtaining water, and to establish restric tions to prevent abuse of the privileges re served to fisherman of the United States. 8. To agree upon and recommend the ]>en alties to be adjudged and such proceedings and jurisdiction as may lie necessary to se cure speedy trial and judgment for viola tors of the rights and transgressions of the limits aud restrictions which may be udopted. AN AD INTERIM TRUCE. > Pending a definite arrangement there was to be an abstention from seizing United States fishing vessels unless found within three miles of the Canadian coast. Secre tary Bayard further proposed that each country should each send a national vessel to the Gulf to superintend the fisheries. It is also suggested that fishing vessels of the United Htates are to have in Cauivlian ports the same privileges ns other vessels of the Unites! (States, including purchase of bait and other supplies; the release of all United States fishing vessels now under seizure and to refund all fines, A copy of this dispatch was forwarded to Canada, and under date of Dec. 38 Lord I<ansdowne forwarded the reply of the Canadian government with regal'd to the first article. SURRENDER INVOLVED. It says this reservation involves the sur render of the exclusive right of fishing in bays which have hitherto wen regarded as beyond all question within the terri torial waters of Canada, such, for instance, as the right of fisheries in the inner waters of Bayou des Chaleurs at points forty or fifty miles from its mouth, which, roughly speaking, may be less than twenty miles wide at its opening. Article 2 prejudices in favor of the United States one of the most iimmrtant of the points which liavo lieon in dispute by deciding ad versely to Canada the construction which is to lie placed upon the imperial und Cana dian statutes, tno proper interpretation of which is at this moment the subject of liti gation before the Canadian court. Article 3 was objected to as likely to lead to frus trating the ends of justice. DECLARED PREJUDICIAL. Article 4 prejudices in favor of the United States an Important question which has arisen as to the commercial privileges to which United States fishing vessel* are enti tled while In Canada waters. The history of the negotiations which preceded tlie con vention or 1818 makes it perfectly clear that the purchase of bait was not one of the purposes for which it was intended that United States fishing vessels rtioulil have the right of entering Canadian waters. Sec retary Bayard’s proposal* amount to this; that the government of Canada is to submit its conduct in the past and its rights In the future to tho arbitrament of a coiumlesion. RENUNCIATION INVOLVED. Such on admission would involve public renunciation of substantial uiul valuable rights and privileges for all time without any sort of equivalent and without any compensation. 1 trust her majesty’s gov ernment will discourage the Unit'd States from pressing these proposals in their pre sent shape, aud will avoid any action which might induce a belief thut tlie offer em bodied in them U one which deserve* a favorable reception at the hands of the Do minion government. ENGLAND’S SUGGESTION. The answer to this came in the form of a telegram for Hu- Henry Holland under date of lo b. 21. 1887, us follows: “Your din pet, cli of J)(v\ 28 .‘lo* Ihvh carefully con sidered by lior majesty’s govniip .it, who v/iil communicate with the United States in general accordance with tlie views of your Minister. There are, however, one or two pc,!nts on which further communication will be made to you. Her majesty's government feel it right, to intimate to you whilo en deavoring to bring about an ad interim ar rangement that they tire disposed to think that tlie liost solution of the difficulties might lie found if both parties would ngrro to revert the condition of things existing under tho treaties of Washington, fisheries iiolng again thrown reciprocally open, and fish mvf fixlt products lieing again recipro cally admitted duty free. “Tills amuigeuie.it, if not permanent, is to subsist at least for n term, so os to admit of discussion. They think, however, that it would tic c'iariy to the interest of the Do minion to offer tnis arrangement without any suggeeton ” CANADA AGREEABLE. To this Lord Isuisdowue answered under date bf Fob. 2(5: “In reply to your telegram of tho 24th in stant,, my government will accept your .-sug gestion of reverting temporarily to the con dition of things under tnc treaty of Wash ington, and do not desire to raise tlio ques tion of indemnity.” Tho substance of tlio dispatch of ljCid Saulsbury, hi communicating to t ho Ameri can government the consent of tho imperial authorities to a mixed commission to report upon tho matters referred to in the throe first articles communicated to the burl of Cirfcuatet bv Mr. Adams*in 1880. has bo- come publio. It is the one in which he offers | to revert to the statute of the Washington treaty without indemnity.

Under date ofApril Id, Mr. Foster says; “In reference to the letter of this depart ment, dated March hi, 1886, I have to inti mate to you that during the present season and until otherwise ordered, you wall lie guided by the instructions in that letter. I have every reason to believe that these have been executed with efficiency and firmness, as well as with discretion and duo regard for rights secured by treaty to foreign fish ing vessels resorting to Canada waters. 1 desire, however, to impress upon you that in carrying out those instructions you should lie most careful not to strain tho in terpretation of the law in the direction of interference with the rights remaining to tho United States fishermen in Canada wnt ts under the convention of I*lß. To this end tho largest liberty compatible with full protection of Canada interests is to bo granted United Htates vessels in obtaining iu our waters shelter, repairs and water. Cain should Ik' taken that while availing themselves of these privileges such vessels shall not engage in any illegul practices, but it is not deemed necessary that in order to effect this an armed guard should lie placed on board or that any reasonable communication with tho shore should not lie [lermitted. Blank forms of entry and clearance are furnished to captains of cruisers. These, on being tilled in, are to lie forwarded by the captain of the cruiser to the custom officers of the port within whose jurisdiction they liavo been used. In case of distress or of sickness on board any foreign fishing vessel, all needful facilities are to be granted for relief, and both you and your officers will lie carrying out the wishes of the department in oourteously and freely giving assistance in such cases. The above special instructions, while designed with regard to the fullest recognition of all lawful rights to which vessels are entiled, are not to Ik) construed as authorizing a lax enforcement of,the provisions of the laws for the protection of Canada fisheries. Fish ing, preparing to fish, procuring bait, trading or transhipping of cargoes by United States fishing vessels within the three miles limit fare manifest violations of the convention of 1818 and of the imperial and Canadian statutes, and in these coal's your instructions, which are explicit, are to be faithfully followed.” HUNTER'S SHORTAGE.
