A Statement Neceeury.
London, England, September 4.
So strong has been tbe criticism , of tbe
radical papers npon the alleged luxu
rious surroundings of Dr. Jameson and
bis fellow raiders, since their sentence
was so modified as to . make
them first-class misdemeanants,
that the governor of Holloway prison,
Lieutenant-Colonel Everard S. Milman,
bas found it necessary to issue a state
ment of tbe conditions by which the
prisoners are governed.
Interest In Theatrical Circles.
London, England, September 4.
Great interest is manifested in theatri
cal Circles over the forthcoming pro
' duution, at the St. James theater, of
Miss Grace Hawthorne's stage version
of "The Pilgrim's Progress," and it is
heightened by the announcement that
Miss Hawthorne will play "Christian"
in black tights and doublet. The book
of tbe play has been approved by the
censor attaobed to the lord chamber
lain's office, and it is consequently to
be assumed that it contains nothing
likely to shock the sensibilities of the
dmrers of John Banyan's eternal
.allegory. .i; ; ;

MAY CUT A FiaURfi.
The Release ol Dr. iiallagner May Re-Open
the or. Cranio Cat.
New York, N. Y. September .
The release from Portland prison of
Dr. Thomas Gallagher, tbe Irish politt
cal priboner, is likely to again re-open
that phase of the Irish controversy that
is connected with the assassination in
Chicago of Dr. P. H. Cronrn. Dr
Gallagher was one of the Irish-Ameri
cans sent to England by tbe Clan-na
Gael in 1882, and whose identity was
disclosed to the British police, almost
immediately on their arrival, with tbe
result that they were nnder surveillance
until they committed some overt aot,
or the police could capture tbem with
dynamite in their possession.
Dr. Cronin was tbe chief of those In
this oountry who: insisted that these
men were betrayed from this side of
the water, and strong testimony in sup
port of this position was given before
tbe investigating committee that met
in tbe Westminster hotel. New York,
on July 80th, 1889. It was also charged
by Cronin that Dr. Gallagher's family
bad been allowed to softer want and
privation after his arrest and convio
tion.
Dr. Cronin, daring the week of his
murder, was busily engaged npon a
verbatim report of this investigation,
and it has been generally believed that
those who took his life imagined that
be bad the manuscript on his person.
It is still in existence, however, and
will cut considerable of a figure in any
statements that Dr. - Gallagher may
make concerning his alleged betrayal.
FILLED CHEESE..
Tbe U. S. Law Ooyernlng Its Sal Went Into
- Effect To-day. :
Washington, D. C, September 4.
The law passed at the last session of
congress, at the instanoe of tbe nation,
al dairy union, which is aimed against
the manufacturer of filled cheese, goes
into effect to-day. Under its provis
ions, the retail dealer must pay an an.
nual fee of $8 for tbe privilege of sell
ing it, and the manufacturer n tax of
one cent a pound for tbe privilege of
making it. Moreover, the cheese must
be stamped on tbe top and on the bot
tom and around tbe outside. " Notonlv
this, but tbe retailers must display out
side or inside of their stores' a sign in
letters six inches in height: "Filled
cheese sold here." Disregard of tbe
law is punishable with a fine of f 50
and confiscation of the cheese for each
offense.
The bill is a telling blow to tbe filled.
cheese interests of northern Illinois,
where last year 150 factories turned
out nearly 18,000,000 pounds.
