Fears of a Riot When tlie Irish Editor Speaks There. French Canadian Takinfl as tha Irish Causa Oraaga DUtursancaa mould Help tha Lant sosaa Ttnantrj-Tha 6oeraeiil Know ft. MontkkaIj, May 16. The pnK-eeding and utterances at the Toronto Anti O'Brien meeting of Saturday have jsro Voked much unfavorable comment among tlie government sujijMirters here wlio hold to the opinion tliat the Toronto ieaker went too far and liave damaged their own case. Tlie Montreal Gazette, conservative and government organ, iii a leading editorial, this morning, on the Toronto demonstration says : "It must lie Maid that Home of the speakers at the anti-O'Brien meeting at Toronto were more earnest than wise. They fell into ways that they themselves, in common with a tremendous majority of the people in this country, conilwiin in the agitator wiiime presence on the mission lie lias taken up Canadians resent. Some tilings were were said before the lO.not) or Vi.innY r sons f a there. I in Queen's Iark on Satur day, tliat will rankle in the minds of other citizens who. while not endorsing the Mliey tliat makes thedominion a lat tlefield for Irish quarrels, sympathize with other phases of the movement with which O'Brien is connected, ami will feel that they have l-en needlessly hurt by words that would not have l'en called forth had wiser councils prevailed and the cause of the present turmoil stayed at home. "Thus there is danger ofa collision ami even ttynigh due care lie taken by the authorities to prevent violence Here is almost sure to be a certain amount of trouble through eople taking sides in tlie quarrel that had been thrust upon them. We sincerely hoe that wherever O'Brien determines on going he will ! left in peace and that those who cannot justify his mission will lie kept away. The following is an editorial in the Montreal Herald whose jMilitics are lilier ai, but which ojijMised O'Brien's invasion almost as vigorously as the Gazette itself. It is headed "Wanted the Oilier Side." "It would not only lie projer but it seems alwolutelv mi-essary tliat the state ments made by O'Brien in regard to the treatment of the Luggacnrran tenants should lie met and r egatived if it is punri ble. Lord Lansdow tie does not apear to have had knowledge of these transac tions. Hisagent, of course, may lie said to represent him, but with his Lordship on one side of the Atlantic and negotia tions proceeding on the other between agent ami representat ives of tenants, it might well tie assumed that the nego tiators might goon and and betlisposed of before Lord lansdowne would le infomied of the details. But for the eviction of large liodies of poor people from his estates Lord Lansdowne is resjMinsible ami the whys and wherefores of such action are as de batable in his case in any other case. "The faet that he is Governor Genera! of Canada supplies no reason for silence. The question is agitating the English speaking people of Britain. Canada and the United States. "It matters little how or by whom the agitation is brought about! Very se rious accusations have la-en made. If they aifected the ITemier of Canada they would have to lie answered. They ought all the more to lie met ami an swered when directed against the Oover nor General of Canada. The question is: Are these things true? WHAT O'BRIEN SAYS. To-day everybody is talking of what is likely to occur at Toronto when O'Brien gets there. Speaking of the Orange meeting O'Brien, full of gladness, said it was the best thing that could have hap ened. "Why, said he, "with Lord Lansdowne now it is a case of "Save me from my friends! Haven't Orangemen got him and his case into the same stew that the bigoted little Tory, Charles E. Lewis, got the Government into the other day in relation to the charges of the London Time which he insisted should lie sum inoned to the Kir of the House of Commons ami who, to his as tonishment, and to the consternation of the Government, who united in vetoing the motion, found the proposed action tiupported by the wholeforceof the Irish jvarty. Tersonally I am delighted at their moat e.xtragant utterances and jmt sonally I am fearless. I predicted that Prof. Gold win Smith would at last find his level which prediction is fulfilled, as I see he was one of the. most blatant speakers at the orange meeting. " If any differences existed among the Nationalists of Toronto the publication of Archbishop Croke's letter lias swept it away and caused them all to unite as one man. EXPEOTINO A RIOT. The army of New York newsHijM-r men who are with O'Brien has lieen in creased by representatives from Chicago papers and they are all so thoroughly prepared for a riot in Toronto that they will be disapointed if it rliou'd not come oft. The presence of Ernest IV Hosier, tlie leading French Canadian at yesterday's meeting here in St. Patrick's Hall and his stirring anti-Lansdowne speech, the promise of Iai M.sf ice to sup ply French aid to defend O'Brien, if nee- ! eaeary, and the general tenor cf feeling prove beyond question that any if a se rious attempt at disturliance takes place, but especially if a hair of O'Brien's head te injured, a blaze will lie lighted from one end of the Dominion to the other, in comparison with which the Kiel excite ment was tame. RIOT WOl'IJ) BK.UEFIT HIS CAISF- O'Brien says a riot during this time would give such a tremendous lift to the Irish cause generally, that he fears it will not take place. Much as Orange riots in Belfast served the cause of Home Kule. much more would Orange riots in Toronto serve the cause of the Lans downe tenantry. He is of the ojiinion that Lord Lansdowne knows this and Mayor How land too, and tliat both will consequently work hard to preserve the peace. But the best laid schemes are disarranged when passions are aroused and passions are now arouse L O'Brien leaves for Toronto at o'clock to-night. SHOT IN THEIR CELLS.

ArehbUliop Cor-rlgaM on (.i-orilim - The I'ope'a Kieht. New York. May 16. Archbishop Corrigan made his canonical visitation to the Church of the Sacred Heart this morning. Low Mass was celebrated, at the conclusion of which the Archbishop sttokeon the jn.pular error which he said were widely prevalent at the pres ent time. The first of these was the idea that private ownership of land was nn just. This idea the Archbishop charac terized as a fallacy against both philos ophy and common sense and as againrt teachings of the Catholic Church. Those the who claiii.sl that land. like sunshine and air. was the free gift of God and equably the projierty of all, overlooke-1 the great difference that sun and air can not Uvome private projierty. as can land. He declared tliat every man had a right to acquire by honest means as much projH-rty as he could and cited the Indians as an example of the disastrous results of a free land policy. He also said tliat the idea was in direct opjHisitioii to the decree of the PIe, ami that thone who favored it knew tliat they were infringing on the ordinances of G.-1. The second error which the Archbishop wished to combat was that the Pope had a right to command and to be olicyed in matters of faith and morals and when speaking as infallible. This idea had liec n decr-ed false by the a n Coun cil, who had ordered that "If any one should say that tlie Pojie had a right to command in matters of faith ami morals ami not in discipline let him ! anathema. The Pope, however, does not interfere in matters of Nlitics unless the Government interferes in matters of conscience, and he has warned all Bish oM and Archhishojis that they must Is oliedient to the government under which they are.

New York, May 16. A great crowd tried to get into Judge Barrett conrt. tliis morning, to hear the opening of the Jake Sliarp trial. It was so large tliat the officers finally decided to only ad mit talesmen, lawyers. reiorters and others connected with tlie case. Promptly at 11 o'clock Sharp came into court, fol lowed by ex-Commissioner Kollin M. Squires and accompanied by his counsel, Messrs. Stickney, Fullerton, Nelson, Par sons, Mitchell, Dupignae and Bird. He took a seat in the same place where the "Boodle" Aldermen Jaehne, O'Neil and Cleary sat. Placing his crape-bound hat on the table before him he leaned far over to catch the sound of everytliing tliat was Kiid. District Attorney Mar- tine and his assistants, Messrs. Fellows, Nicoll. Semple and Davis, were in their seats early, and at il:l Mr. Martine moved, in a low voice, that the trial of Jacob Sharp proceed. There was some talk aliout the trial of one of the several defendants alone, and Mr. Martine stated tliat the counsel for Kerr and for Richmond had each elected tliat their clients lie tried seierately. Sharp's counsel acknowledged that this was so. The jxill of the siecLd jury panel was then called and quite a large number of jurors were examined, who proved to lie unsatisfactory to either prosecution or defense. Altogether fifty-four talesmen were examined la-fore the adjournment of the court this afternoon, and at night but one seat in the jury Imx was occupied. Nine candidates for the lx were excused for lack of ordinary intelligence, or in ability to understand English; one made the most of his Nmition as m11 clerk and claimed his privilege of exemption from jury duty, two or three were ill and the remaining foity all escaj.Mil jury duty through their more or less firmly ritol bias.

Padgett, a com panion, was wounded in Alexandria shortly la-fore 1 o'clock yesterday morn ing. The tragtily occurred near the railroad dejiot in a recently vacated cir cus ring. Near the circus lot was a sa loon kejit by Sefer Blouse, who was re jMirtnl to have large sums of money alut him. lieing afraid to entrust it to the K-inks. It was known, moreover, that Blouse has taken in considerable money during the circus. Between ten and twelve o'clock Policemen Arnold ami Martin, observing two men lurking in the neighliorhood and whisjM-ring suspiciously, crept up near enough to overhear them jdan the robls-ry of Mouse's saloon at 2ocIiM.-k. While discussing what it was liest to do, the officers were joined by another jMiliceman, and Padgett, who had been the unsuccessful candidate for Police Sujierintendent at the last election. It was agreed that two of the officers should notify Blouse of the intended robls-ity. while Arnold and Padgett should come from the direction opposite Blouse's sa loon and thus the four should intercept the burglars. In following out this jlan rnold and Padgett discovered two men lying flat on their backs in the ring. They called to the suspected burglars to surrender and rushed forward to caj ture them. As they did so the two men drew revolvers, and one of them shot Arnold in the breast and escajail. Pad gett knocked the other man down with a stick, when a life and death struggle ensued, the roblr endeavoring to kill or disable Padgett with a revolver shot. One of the bullets fired inflicted a scalp wound just over Padgett's ear, but he held (il to to his man until other officers arrived and captured him. Arnold was taken to Blouse's saloon, where he died in aliout an hour, the bullet having jiassed through isith lungs. It was then found that Blouse, who liad just Is-en notified of the intended burglary, had received a flesh wound in the thigh from a stray bullet of the bur glar. The captured man was taken to the station house, where he was identi fied as John Curran, of Washington, a well known desa-rado. BLOODY WORK OF A MANIAC.

The wnl sown by the end of Sejitember commenced germination at once, and on the '.'-'lil of Octola-r I could transplant the twelve stiillings raised. I lx-lieve that these Misllinga made uj their mind to start ut once nnd to cpjoy our U-autl-f id climate.

HOME REMARKS, Iii giving ymi some of my experiences in hybridization, a stated alsive, I have to communicate to you some remarks, U fore jiublishiug some of the other ex-jN-rimeiits already made. If you ask ten -ion, what different kind of fruits can Im? raised on our soil. I inn convinced you will have eleven different opinion, your own included, and that after all the information re ceivnl, you will find youraclf juat as wise a you were Is-fore, You uity go w here you jilease, you will always have the same Mod e jMricnce. For some of the laiiple dislike the progress science is making ho rapidly in our time, they would .refer to sit Mtill, than to march on the road all civilization is now tread ing. Some are great talkers only, for as soon om it comes to the jMiint, they will .rove their ignorance at (Mice, while others think themselves to, wise and mill no further education or instruction ami others again w ill fle found that are yen tMi lazy to think for themselves. All of these are harmless beings. But we meet very often another clans of Muplo that will tell you all eicct the truth; and if you follow their advice, you may Ui-ome ruined by your credulty. These are therefore the worst of all humau be ing for uch Infernal unprincipled crea tures will lM-hold your ruin with a dia bolic smile, the real sign of a character and nature filled with jealousy and envy. Some of my readers may think tliat is a hard saying, but it is a true one. And as I am Uirn without gloves, I cannot do otherw ise, than to tell the truth, and if you have to meet such eijMi-iennee as said U-fore, you will find out tliat you are comjM-llod to follow the golden rule: "Help yourselves," that is to say: try the lant you can never give up until the struggle in over and the victory gained; do not lose confidence in yourself, he assured you will find the road finally that w ill lead you from theory to prac tice and from practice to success. Ex--rieuce is tlie mother of wisdom, Mays the proverb, sometimes a cisitly mother indeed, but always a good one. Ills l unal Way. Knterprfoa Harold.
