The Discovery by Columbus Appro
priately Commemorated.
Sharon, Ga., Oct. 21.—The Columbus
celebration of the Saored Heart Seminary
here yesterday was a great success. The
old eburoh was converted into a miniature
theater and bold a large and attentive audi
ence. Tbe stage was prettily decorated
"ith bags of different nations and was
flanked by woodland scenes, which, to our
imagination, seemed a veritable San Salva
dor, as the realistio ship, the little Santa
Maria, manned by jolly tars, came
dancing over the waves. The little
drama ohosen for the occasion
"as made up from various episodes
in the life of Columbus. The great discov
erer was personated by Charlie Lynch,
Ferdinand and Isabella by John Kalvey and
Charlie Buckley and Dom i’edro by An
drew Failigant. There were also a num
ber of courtiers, sailor* and Indiana. A
laughable feature of the play, and one
"hiob pleased the audience immensely, was
the introduction into one of the scenes of a
sturdy little dinkey, whose wooden legs
were not too stiff to out many an antic and
finally to overthrow his rider. The various
scenes of the play, both grave and gay,
ended with the pathetic one of Columbus in
chains and the singing of the “Star
Spangled Banner.” Interspersed between
tne acts were recitations well rendered by
s luniiers and Joseph Clatins, M. Johnson,
8. Tlghe, Haines Keed, A. Failigant and
little Gerge Failigant.

CELEBRATIONS EVESYW.iEXK.
The Whole Country Gives Itself Over
to Patriotism.
Washington, Oct. 21.—The celebration
of Columbus’ discovery was universal to
day throughout the continent with an
elatoratiou and disp ay proportioned to the
SZ9 of the communities. In cities like Now
York, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston,
Baltimore, Cincinnati and St. Louis, the
event was worthy of extended space in
description of each, but they are
overshadowed by what has happened at
Chicago. The most prominent feature
everywhere was t e part taken by the
children. In no case was there a failure to
mention tbe little ones in the ceremouies.
Their absence would be as notable os tbe
absence of religious observance.

SANTIAGO DEL ESTEnO’S REVOLT.
It Fad Its Origin In an Attack on the
City Roll By i wenty-flve Citizens.
London, Oct. 21. —A spe dal to the Times
from Buenos Ayres says the revolt in San
tiago del Estero had its orig n in a l and of
twenty-five citizens, who were headed by
Garya, leader of the last outbreak in this
city. They mode an attack on the city
ball, which was defended by a number of
troops. The latter fought de-peraieiy for
an hour, but (tie attacking force compelled
them to surrender. The loss on bmp hides
was five me i killed and nine men wounded.
The governor and vice govern.r were capt
ured !>y th s rebels.
According to one authority the outbreak
was merely a meeting umo..g the soldiers in
the barracks at Santiago.
The Times corre.-pundent denies this,
however, and says the revolt is tue result ot
a well-matured plan to oust the provincial
government. Tbe city is quiet, but great
enthusiasm prevails among the people at
the success of the rebels.

THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY. OCTOBER 22. 1862.
ENGLAND’S CABINET ROW
ASQUITHS RESIGNATION NOT
LOOKED FOR.
A Belief That He le Too Ambitious to
Sacrifice His Position Despite Ru
mors to the Contrary—Tbe Mutiny
Among the Troops Causing a Great
Deal of Talk.
Copurioht , 1892, by the .V. Y. Associated Press.)
London. Oot. 21.—1 tis rumored that
serious difficulty has arisen in the cabinet
over tbe question of the release of prisoners
who were convicted of having
taken part in dynamite outrages
that occurred several years ago. A
prominent conservative organ even de
clares that the situation is so acute that
Mr. Asquith, home secretary, has threatened
to resign. It is au open secret tuat there
has been a difference of opinion in
the ministry as to the settlement of
the Trafalgar square question, but
the matter, was nrraiged by general
acceptance of a compromise which was
announced in these dispatches of Wednes
day last. This settlement was proposed by
Mr. Asquith himself, who oonverted the
other members of the ministry to this
simple so’ution of the knotty question,
which the conservatives had expected
would be a thorn in the side of the govern
ment for a long time to c >me. The present
difficulty has been greatly magnified in
tory q urters. Sir William Vernon Har
court, chancellor of the exchequer, is said
to be resolute against the release
of any of the dynamite prisoners, while
Mr. Asquith favors the granting of amnesty
to many of them though he even hosita’es
to favor a general pardon of all the dyna
miters. The liberals ridicule the idea that
there is any serious dissension over the
matter.
Besides, it is believed in independent
circles that Mr. Asquith, wh > is yoang and
ambitious, is not likely to jeopardize bis
newiy won position, to whioh six months
ago he had no suspicion of attaining, by
serious opposition to any solution of
the dynamite problem which had
received the general approval of bis col
leagues, According to reports from radical
centers one item of tbe Newcastle pro
gramme is certain of execution, Sir William
Vernon Hsrcourt having decided that the
next budget, which he intends shall be
thoroughly democratic, shall include pro
posals providing for a free "breakfast
table" by the abolition of the duties on tea.
coffee and oocoa, the resulting reduction in
the revenue to be met by increased taxation
of land. Such a scheme would give im
mense satisfaction to the working classes,
which have for a long time been agitating
this subject.
MUTINY OF THE TROOPS.
The recent manifestation of mutloy com
ing on top of another, in crack regiments
like the Guards and the Thirteenth Hussars
is creating a feeling bordering on consterna
tion throughout tbe country and causing a
groat outcry for a thorough inquiry into
the cause of what appears to bo widespread
discontent. Letters published in the news
papers from soldiers, some of whom still
belong to the discontented regiments, force a
belief that the officers are greatly to blame.
It is asserted that main officers of the Life
Guards are quite ignorant of their duties,
rarely attend drills, aro obliged to have
subordinates near them on field days to
tell them the word of command to give.
The soldiers- have even been known
to execute movements without command*
from their officers in order to save tbe
credit of the troops. Yet the same officers
when they inspect the rooms and stables of
the troops, find most stupid and most trivial
fault and impose extreme punishment on
soldiers for their alleged remissness. Radi
cal members of the House of
Commons have been discussing
tbe situation recently and when
parliament re-opens Campbell Bannerman,
Secretary of War, will be closely questioned
on the subject. The result of this
questioning will probably be an official in
quiry that wili prol.e the whole matter
to the bottom. The impression that the
chief fault of the mutinous manifestations
is not wholly on the side of the men is not
confined to the organs of the working
classes. This fact is shown bv an article iu
an outspoken tory organ, tbe Keening
.Veits, which, after severely criticising the
dismissal ot the non-commissioned officers
of the Life Guards, says: “They were ex
pelled from the army because
they could not correct the
blundering policy of their superior*.
It would be far better to cashier some of
the ornamental idlers who only upset the
discipline of a regiment and display their
own vanity and incompetence.” Particu
larly bard is tbe case of the married men in
tbe companies who were dismissed. They
were put to the expense of moving their
homes from W indsor to Shorncliffe before
they were told of their dismissal. Tbeir
case enii-ts the sympathy of even the Times,
which says that their dismissal has caused a
serious feeling throughout the regiment.
great indignation expressed.
Great indignation is expressed in regard
to the matter, aad other tn#n declare tbeir
intention to buy tbeir discharge. One of
the non-commissioned officers who were dis
charged was confined by illnei-s to a hospital
when the outbreak occurred. Yet this faot
did not prevent the authorities from deal
ing with him as severely as with those offi
cers who were on active duty. A significant
fact in connection with the insubordination
of the Thirteenth Hussars stationed at
Cork, when tweuty of tbe troopers refused
to parade as a protest against what they
claimed were useless and arduous inspec
tions, was the exceedingly light punishment
inflicted on the rebellious soldiers and the
di-continuance thereafter of the parade in
que.-t:on. This was accepted as an admis
sion of the higher authorities that the mu
tinous action of the men wore not entirely
unprovoked. The transfer of several offi
cers of the command had been expected.
CARLISTS ACTIVE AGAIN.
A porlentious fact in c mneefion with tbe
illness of the King of Spain i< the revival of
activity in Carlists centers in London and
Paris. Rig: e are cot wanting that prepar
ed ns are being made by the < ’arlists to
strike a blow before long for possession of
tbe Spanish throne. The Carlists abroad
are in active communication with the net
work of the committee with which the
whole of .Spai is overrun. Every town in
the highlands of Spain, and a majority of
the towns in other par s of the country,
have Corbst clubs.
Gn top of tbe discovery that an American
bullock imported into this country was in
fected with pleuro-pneumoma comes an an
nouncement that the disease has also been
discovered in a Canadian cow, which was
landed m Dundee and taken to Fifeshire,
where the disease fully developed. All ani
mals with which the infected cow had come
in contact were ordered to be immediately
destroyed. An inquiry as to the destina
tion of the others conveyed on the steamer
With the infected cow has been instituted,
and a stricter in-pection of all Canadian
cattle in the future has been insured.
Scottish Rite Mason*.
Washington, Oct. 31.— Tbe supreme
council of the Scottish rite Masons for the
southern jurisdiction to-day voted to hold
its next meeting in 1894 at Bt. Louis Vari
ous propositions looking to an amalgama
tion of the s lutbern and northern jurisdic
tions have been submitted, and it is thought
likely that a union will take place, but how
soon cannot be predicted. A petition from
tbe Cernean Scottish Rita Masons praying
for recognition was unanimously rejected.
A Foot Ball Player Killed.
Poughkeepsie, N. V.. Oct 21.—Joseph
E. Perez and other students of Eastman
College were playing faot ball when Perez
came in contact with one of the other play
ers and was thrown to tbe ground and sus
tained such injuries that he died last night
at 10 o’clock. Tbe fall produoed concussion
of tbe brain.
SICKLES NOT A BOLTER.
He Stands by tha Democratic Platform
and Candidates.
New York, Oct. 21.—Gen. Daniel E.
Sicklee. speaking at a democratic meeting
to-nigbt at the Harlem theater, said: “Now
let me make a few remarks about national
affairs. I have been tenderly em
braced by my republican friends
for a camp-fire speech that I made, or
whioh they thought I had mads. They
were of the opinion that I might be induosd
to join them. I accept the platform of the
Chicago convention and no thanks, for I
helped to make it, and I accept the candi
date tasif I helped to make them. 1 said to
my soldiers at Washington, and this is the
foundation for all the talk, the night Presi
dent Harrison returned with his siok wife,
and when the men were disappointed be
cause the President could not see them,
as they had expected, because Mrs. Harri
son was ill, I said, comrades you have nee i
disappointed to-day and lam sorrr. You
expected to bo received by the President,
but he is at the bedside of his sick wife. He
has not forgotten you and you must not
forget him. That is what I said.” con
tinued the speaker. "President Harns.m
was a brave soldier, for I saw him lead his
men ou to victory at Resaca, and I say it
now, and I asked my men to direct their
secretary and chairman to go up
to the white house the next day and shako
bands with tho President and extend their
sympathy to him in his trou’ le. If that
makes a Harrison man of me so be it. But
the bravery of President Harrison was
nothing to be compared to the bravery of
Mr. Depew in leading ant army of office
holders to nominate President Harrison at
the Minneapolis convention and put to rout
the Blaino forces. That in itself is the issue
for this campaign. So you see that Presi
dent Harrison as a comrade is one thing and
as the leader of a political party seeking to
perpetuate his power iu office by means of
his mmions-in tha employ the government
is another thing.”
BLAINE NOT TO SPAK.
The Ex-Secretary Reiterates His De
cision in the Matter.
New York, Oot 21.—A story was pub
lished this afternoon stating that James G.
Blaine had formally placed himself at tbe
disposal of tbe republican national commit
tee and that ho would make three speeches
during this “ campaign. An Associated
Press reporter saw Mr. Blaine at 2 o’clock
this afternoon and called his attention to
tho foregoing statement Mr. Blaine said
it was absolutely untrue, and that he bad
not placed himself at tbe disposal of the re
publican national committee. “I am doing
nothing further ia politics,” Mr. Blaiue
said.
M’MAHON ALL RIGHT.
He Will Not Carry Cut His Threat to
Run as an Independent.
New York, Oct. 21.—Gen. Martin Mc-
Mahon has withdrawn bis threat to run as
an independent candidate for congress in
the Tenth district with a view of defeating
Gen. Dan E. Sicklee. This is said to be the
result of a conference between Gen. Mc-
Mahon and Thomas Gilroy at the Mansion
house. Mr. Gilroy told Gen. McMahon that
if he became a candidate he would help
elect a republican. "I am a true demo
crat," Gen. McMahon said, "and will not
imperil the democracy’s success in the state
or national election.”
MRS. HARRISON SINKING.
The Patient Growing Weaker and
Weaker All the Time
Washington, Oot. 31.—Tbe condition of
Mrs. Harrison was this morning reported
to be about the same. Hr. Gardner, after
tbe morning visit.said thediseaso was mak
ing rapid progress in the left lung, and the
patient is getting weaker and weaker all the
time. He could not say positively that she
would not pass away within a few hour-,
nor would be surprised if she lingered for
weeks.
As the day wore on Mrs. Harrison seemed
to get a little stronger, and the terrible feel
ing of alarm that prevailed at the white
house gave way during the afternoon to a
more hopeful feeling.

Washington, Oct. 21,11:30 p. m.—Mrs.
Harrison has slept the greater part of the
day and her slumber was natural and re
freshing. Asa result she has recovered con
siderably from the effects of last night’s
sinking spell, the reports of which naturally
alarmed everybody this morning. At 10
o’clock to-night Dr. Gardner said to the
Morning News correspondent that while
Mrs. Harrison’s general condition was no
better she had certainly recovered greatly
from last night’s bad attack. He said she
might have several such sinking spells be

SEIZURE! OF THE SEALERS.
Rußßia’s Treatment of the British Flag
Respectful.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 21.—The Official
Messenger pu'lishes to-dey the first au
thorita.ive version of the Russian capture
of sealing vessels in the Pacific ocean. The
paper declares that six vessels were seised
at points distant eighteen or twenty miles
from the Russian coast, not from thirty to
forty miles, a9 has been asserted.
The captures were nearly all mads outside
the territorial water boundary. This is ex
plained by the fact that the sealers, seeing
the Russian cruisers approaching, fled ana
the cruisers chased them, sometimes for an
hour and a half. Only vessels, the logs,
charts, etc., of which proved that they had
been sealing in Ru sian watvrs, were
seized. Three of the vessels captured
were released with a warning. The conduct
of Russian officers was blameless. The
British flag was not insulted, it was only
hauled down ami replaced by the Russian
colors after the vessels bad been seized. 'lbe :
crews of the caiitured vessels were well
treated, but when they became quarrelsome i
and insulting to the Russian officers order !
ha tto be restored by force of arms. The i
Official Messenger says that tip) Door catch
of seals on Cooper Island is due to the fact
that the rookeries have been destroyed by
sealers, especially English.
DISQUIET IN SAM A.

partite Convention.
Berlin, Oct. 21.—The Vossische Zeitung

many is now convinced that the Samoan
convention was one of the greatest mistakes
of German diplomacy. Great Britain, the
United States and Germany, it ad:is, are all
agreed that the present situation in Samos
is insupportable and that the oonveniion
must be amended. Pending thia the Vos
sische Zeitung reoommsnds the immediate
construction of a cable to Samoa to enable
the governments to communicate with their
consuls without delay.

purporting to be an interview with Mrs.
Lease, which appeared in the Chicago Inter
Ocean, was vigorously denounced here to
day as being unqualifiedly false. H. W.
Reed, from whom Mrs. Lease claimed to
have received her information, was called
upon by oitizens of the town and ashed
what he had to say in reply to Mrs. Lease's
charges. He complied by giving out the
following written statement:
“1 have too high a regard for Mrs. Lease
to believe that she is quoted correctly, as I
have never had any communication with
her nor any one else regarding the treat
ment of herself and party while in Oeorg'a,
neither did I sit up all night to protect
them. At the request of the acting mayor,
I assurbd Gen. Weaver that he would nave
ample protection while in Waycross, and
as a law-abiding citizen desiring to secure
to Waycross immiin ty from the charge of
maltreating her guests, I did all In ray
power to make the assurance good. On
the night they thougl t of leaving I went to
tne depot before the leasing time of their
train, aud met a crowd of aliianceinen and
others, who said tmt they had positive in
formation that Gen. Weaver would be
rot ten-egged on leaving. I also learned
the same thing at the hotel, and the
acting mayor was preparing to prevent it.
1 remained at tbe derot until the train left
ab ut 10 o’clock, and the naxt morning I as
sured Gen. Weaver that the may r and the
best citizens of Waycr ss hart seen to it that
the few irresponsible men belt on mischief
had been prevented from carrying out their
plans, and he seemi.d to be satisfied with
the result. I can only account for the in
terview in question on the ground that the
republican papers in the west are hard up
for campaign material. Tho report is an
Injustice to our city, which is noted for its
law and order and the protection of ‘the
stranger within its gates.’ ”
The Morning News correspondent also
called upou Mayor Knight to know wbeiher
or not the charges were true. He said:
“You can say for me that while I was ab
sent from the city at the time of Gen.
Weaver’s visit to Waycross, I have i iveeti
gated the charges made by Mrs. Lease as to
their treatment while in this city, and pro
nounce them as fabrications and malicious
falsehoods.”
NEILL FOUND GUILTY.
The Jury Out Only Five Minutes.
Sentenced to Hang:
London, Oct. 21.—An immense crowd
gathered about the old Bailey this morn
ing, all anxious to gain admission to the
court room to hear Justice Hawkins sum up
the Neill case. On the bench with Justice
Hawkins were Lord Roylston, Bir Reginald
Hansen. UoL Mlldman and a number of
other well-known men.
Neill did not appear to be at all disturbed
bv bis position, and after taking his seat
he looked about the oourt room with great
composure. At 11:40 o’clock Justice
Hawkins began his summing up.
He reviewed the evidesce at length, saying
that the jury was not to expect the prosecu
tion to submit material proof of tho com
mission of the crime. The case was given
to the jury an J they retired.
Before the people in the court room had
time to thoroughly discuss tbe judge's
charge the jury returned aud announced -
that they found the prisonor guilty of the
murder of Matilda Clover.
They were only five minutes in agreeing
on a verdict.
Justice Hawkins at once put on the black
cap and sentenced Neill to lie hanged. Neill
is suspected of the murder by poisoning
of several women of Matilda Clover’s class.
