Me.. May 19. 'lheexcitement the here over the se.zuie ot the schootner Ella of' M. Doughty by the Canadian authorities is increasing, as is the feeling that the gov- pot ernment is strangely silent. Letters have been received from all along the coast say Ing that common rause will be made with but the Portland fishermen and that a general ere union for defence will be arranged. A. i. Whitten. secretary of the Fish Ex- foi chance. said to day: "Kesolutions in favor wh of arming our vessels will be adopted at the the meeting of the exchange. In the present in: temper of the owners and fishermen, such a mi resolution could not be made too strong. in We shall do something more than adopt Bil resolutions. We shall act. Had I been in the Capt. Doughty's place. with twelve good dw men at my back. that one officer would nev er have taken my vesseL I should have said to him 'ret off, or I will loek you up and a take you with me!' The government is an doing nrathing for us. We must save our- ad selves and we shball do it." la Anotler prominent owner -aid: "We thu shall stand for our rights. anti if thegovern- an meat will not protect its we will protect our- In selves. HIad ('apt. DLugbty's men been agr armed the capture would never tave been fet made. When Capt. Doughty goes to sea tp again he will carry cannon and small ars, fal and all other fthinr vessels that to out of Ia this port will also he aimed and their cap tains will have direct orders to resist all at tempts that may be made to seize the ves- b els." up The fishermen -ay that the government an has not given the slightest sirn of interest in the matter. and that if Portland cannot send word to ('apt. Doughtv at Englishtown that the government ol the United States will protect him. then Portland can and will bl say to him that the people of the State of 511 Maine will stand hack or him. and that An- be encan vessels cannot heseized at will by the Canadians. al AT LAST. as to cia An Eminent Forger Arrested After wt a Long Chase.

Pa of bil A Police Captain's Statement of Dlscoveries. .o int What Iipurports to be the evidence given in before the grand jury in Chicago by Pollice Captain Schaack is published. The witness states that he can prove th4 the prisoner Lingg manufactured a number of dynamite bombs from material obtained at the office on of the Arbeiter Zeitung. Three persons ow were associated with Lingg, one of w ihom was under arrest. "I think." the captain continued. "that I have got to the bottom of this business. In a couple of days I will have it all. But I want a little more time. Then I can prove beyond a doubt that this Anarchist conspi racy has existed here for years and that t here do are two divisions of it. itne is an agitating section. Money is set apart for its purpoise. ve This is called the Socialist section. Besides Ti this there is an armed party-an Anarchist section. These drill and are trained in the mc use of explosives. I think I can prove that there was a well laid plan to sack and burn districts in Chicago, May 4. It would have ho been carried out but that the Anarchists lacked nerve and were unprepared for the vigorous action of the police. Men were told off to set tire to certain houses in the ha northwestern portion of the city and others do were told oft to throw bombs at the meeting if the police attetwpted to disperse it. I think I can connect every man of the So cialists now in jail with this. The houses l to be burned in the northwestern section of the city wereto be selected indiscriminately. The purpose of the burning was to attract the attention of the police to that section and co to draw them away from the main points of attack--the Haymarket square and the po0' lice stations. The early dispersal of the crowd tn the square. the premature throw- r int of the bomb-for it was premature-and ar the determined resistance of the polie ca frightened the would-be incendiaries and th those who were to attack the police barracks of in detail." A juror asked where the w itnese s to prove be this conspiracy were. "In the lock-up of the police stations," Schaack replied. "I can produce as many re of them before the grand-jury as may be at deemed wise and neeessary. They have Il confessed their complicity to me. I have explained to the state attorney and 1 am acting under his instructions." Ever since the night of the riots and the day following, when the search of houses of was commenced, the police of the West st North avenue station and residents of the di district have been finding bits of dynamite, tl gas-pipe, cartridges and ride cartridges in a houses on the prairie and tnder the side- m walks in their immediate vicinity. A little rC over a week ago a number of dynamite eart- t ridges wrapped up in a piece of red oilcloth 01 were found under a sidewalk. Next a boy pI on Quald avenue found some rite cart- P ridges, and two days after this another boy took to his mother for her inspection some P fifty rounds that he had picked up on a prairie. Today some small boys were play- h ing ball on Robey street near the old Chi eago and Pacific railway or Bloomingdal- l track when the ball went into the gutter and A under the sidewalk. A boy had to crawl 1M under and, while looking for his ball found a piece of gas pipe and reported more where a that came trom. He told his father and the police were notified. They searched and found under the sidewalk on the east side n of Robey street and less than two feet south ti of the railway track that a small hole had 1 been seraped out. In this hole were thirty- c one pieces of gas pipe one and one quarter r Sinches in diameter and one to ten inches t long wrapped up in a pleee of oil cloth. Of I these thirty were loaded with dynamite, be stoedat the end with oAnd bleks i. of wood. Afuse about eight inches in Icngth was attacbed to eah, and all were t ready for immediate use. e The last pleeeof the pipe was not laded, t but seemed to have been recently cut, as the a oil was still on is end. In the hole were e alsbo found two boxes of dynamite cae and a four-quart tain-dipper pall, containing a large qauttity of fuse, some warerproof and I some common. The expleive outft was takes tothe Chiage avenue station. The :$1 ecsr thee s wo e eatly sJmlaPr-to a LnLingoas e I is believed the stuf was a alaee there by some of the Anaarhist who a live in the neighburhood, and wbho teared that their homues might be searched.

P'tni.11 I.ANI)s. Reprtwstarttzve I'a yson of Illltnjoi. 11:1 ,l'. a pared areprt lon the bil! to present atlien the from acquiring real estate in the territoties of of the Unitedt Stats. The report -ays the fol bill has for its basis the piropo-ition that wi American soil shall be owned ty Am.\ercans ea, wo far as C'ongress can control it. The corm- pe imittee on publi, landis in this I 'nglre. as d!e in the last. is thoroughly mmiutt*wl to the thi policy of admiinini tering our t.hlie lanld aU systeni that the ;ag icinltitral lands of the Ia- n tion shall i'e parted with, without o-t. to cal be held in small tracts, by actual settlers te only, for the purpose of cultivation by the nac owner, securing Ihereby the thrift of the 4o0 citizen and economy in his managementilil. which ownership always stimulates. lThis sp pollcy, the report -ubnlits, shou!d become an the national -ue. The experience of so of many thouLsanIds of our people in the secur- ov ing of homes in the vast areas of public wi 1hnds has been so successful, that the desire the for owniership of a home, capable of pro die dueing support for the family, is more uni- (i versal here than in any country in the world. m: This, the report says. was the prevalent idea when the homestead law, one of the ad most beneficent acts ever adopted by Con gress, was passed. It was the duty of the o, government to furnish to its people cheap ty homes; to aid the actual settler whose labor ye would make the land fruitful and produc live, civing added wealth to the locality su and stability and strength to the country. It had a megnlficent possession in the public domain of that time, which, under proper management, would have afforded grand th results for generations to come. n Areas of land sufliciently large to make Lj great estates were donated with reckless th liberality, to railroad and other corpora- ax tions, and by a lax. easy administration of an injudicious laws. men with wealth, and oo companies. ;ave been illegally permitted to va acquire other great areas of the public th lands, and now this generation had seen gr the vast territory we had at its beginning so 2,( reduced that less than 5.000,000 of acres of Eg arable, agricultural land-upon which crops t can be raised without Irrigation-remain for dr the settler iunder the general land laws of th the United States: and about fifty millions o of acres only of landsl. susceptible of i.n provement by irrigation. T''ese lands are tw becoming more and more valuable year by os year, and tempted by the promise, sure to be F realized, of immense profits, as well as the K absolute security of the investment, these in lands by devious methods in many cases 1 have been secured in great areas and hold ings by capitalists and corporations, foreign as well as domestic. In the hands of many of those foreign owners and holders these lands are made b subject to a system of landlordism and con ditions totally unameriean ad kindred to h that existing in the Old World systems and conditions which have slread rain and misery wherever they have existed in Eu- e rope. Besides this, out of the heritage of 1 the American people, the common property of this nation-its public lands-we are at > present permitting the coining of immense private fortunes in the hands of forelan no. bility and gentry at the expense of our own people and giving these foreigners the con- I trol of the homes sad happiness of thous- c ands of citizens, or those who have come here to Identy themselves with us. As an illustration of this, a published to statement showing that 20.747,000 acres of t lad are held by foreigners is ded. Among the large bolders mentiond are the I Marquis of Tweedale Sir Edward Reid, the c Hollard company ard several foreign syn-C dit the possessions of each numbering n e millions of aresr. e There is no question, the report says, as o to the power of Congress over the subject. Endland exercised it during all the years of t her progress, and has only recently granted n h the rigs t to hold real estate there to aliens. d The question, the report continues, of how heap homes for the poor can best be s cured will soon be upon us. At the present r rate of disposition, this generation will see a the last acre of publle land, wor tahing f for a home by farmerdisposed of. 0. In conclusion the report tgives the follow Sin s mmry of the work of the eommittee I Sdringtheprent sesion: '"The commit a tee has deotd Its best eforts and most I I, the House for Its eoasidertion ad actio Ssuch measures as, in its judgment, would re Selaim suach lands as had been improvidently d grantedto o rporations nd to whbehthey Sare nos entitled, also for the repeal of sen d lawss rendered posible the improper me Squaitiou ofrat reas of lad from the is governmet, nd to peserve wht it had 0 and sbhold rclaim of the pubic Imia assa is reserveir to be drawnupo by the actual i settlerwithoateeast in homesteada.

Measres are beinU taken for the rescue of labebitants. Vast volumes of flames are iaosing from the crater of the a volcano s ad present a most lampostnl g speet * cle. rrerro t of lava are aminl from t eleven raters. A stream in some places S of metres bared. is owing toward the town of It wss fld L C. that the fa stplosloP SS.OMLEsof whieLh thereis ray record, ocure. But what was then a compara ively smeall heap has been ineased by the ejected material of the intervenalnag age to the immense Et·n of to day. The mountain now rises to a beight of 10,874 feet and has a circular base nearly ninety miles in cir cumferee. It ordinarily pours forth the Ins matter from one central crater, and bthis :he elected ashes, dust, laAlli anrod meulten rlava id running down the sidts of the aeuamulated sly bheap destroy or rather prevent theasecm * ulation of nourishment for vegetable life for a lhng distance from the sumit of the ov. mountai. But whena there is no eruption at a deep ssilece prevails on the mountain's "r top ad a thousand mkeatacks contribute toa rest olameof whle vaper that leese up between the jet black and steel gray walls of the immense crater. Ater the first recorded eruption of Etna it poured out comparatively little matter un- Fat til 4t9. when the moot remarkable outburst In its history took place. Catanla, a flour ishing commercial town founded at its base, was buried beneath the molten lava and Ins 15,000 people were destroyed. tLOTHER TERRIFIC EXPLOSI ',N. and Etna sent out a streamof lava and asies N that buried two villages and a creat number pen Of their inhabitants. That eruption was ton followed by about ti) years' caim, which thrc was followed. in turn, by numerous smaller parl eruptions at irregular periods of time for a Jan period of ten years.

Passengers, jut drivers and conductors were injured, and gri the wildest uproar was kept up, the rig nolice being powerless to do anything.

Edward A Moore, agent ot the Louisiana State Lottery n company, was tried in the federal court to w day for using the malls to forward the lot- w tery swindling schemes and convicted in X two of the ten cases pending against him, e the penalty being $100 and cosr in each as case. Moore pleaded m'ul!ty to the third la charge, when the court held up the judg- th meat on a promise from Moore that he Pi would not violatethelaw again. This action th of the higher court will doubtless have more weight in checking the lottery business than in the state courts, which have tackled It so mildly in the past.
