The Day in Parliament.
London, June 19. Great crowds of
people thronged all* the streets, in the
neighborhood of the parliament house to
day. The outpouring of people was greater
by" far than at any time since the beginning
of the present crisis in public affairs. The
police had great difficulty in keeping the
entrances to the houses of parliament clear,
that members might have easy access.
There was an unusual attendance of mem
bers to-day. Liberals and Conservatives
occupied their usual seats. The
Liberal leaders have not yet given to
the Conservatives any pledge of assistance
in the conduct of the government. The
privy council was not held to-day at Wind
sor castle for the formal transfer of the min
istry. Hence the Liberals will retain their
old benches in parliament.
in the lords.
In the house of lords to-day the Marquis
of Salisbury rose amid cheers and asked
Lord Granville to consent to an adjourn
ment of the house until Tuesday next. He
said the conference ofjthe Liberals and Con
servatives had not reached a stage to
enable either side to make a state
ment, therefore it would be more
convenient for all to postpone any discus
sions until Tuesday as he had suggested.
He wished, however, to make just one ob
servation. It was in respect to a very im
portant order on the paper. He was aware
of the importance of pushing the redistri
bution of seats bill to a conclusion, but a
very serious queestlon had unfortunately
arisen in connection with the measure. It
had become known that the redistribution
of seats bill had destroyed one
seat of a constituency. The Marquis
of Salisbury opposed the redistri
bution of seats bill because when
passed in its present form it would prevent
them from making an appeal to the country
before November. The motion of the Mar
quis of Salisbury to postpone until Tuesday
next the consideration of the redistribution
of seats bill was then adopted by a vote of
124 yeas to 50 noes. Earl Kimberly, who
was secretary of state for India in Mr.
Gladstone's ministry, voted against the mo
tion to adjourn.
in the commons.
In the house of commons this afternoon
Mr. Labouchere asked if it was true that
the Marquis of Salisbury was prevented
from taking office by his failure to obtain
an assurance of assistance from the retiring
government. Mr. Labouchere added that
he himself and many other Radicals strongly
objected to this assurance being given the
Conservatives in the event of their taking
office. Mr. Gladstone, in reply to the
question of Mr. Labouchere, said when he
was last asked a similar question he
stated that he had not at that time any con
ference with the Marquis of Salisbury.
Since -then, however, he had received over
tures from the Marquis of Salisbury. Should
there be any result of any correspondence
between the marquis and himself it would
be made public. There would be no secret
understanding whatever. " In that the Mar
quis of Salisbury himself concurred. The
house then upon motion of Mr. Gladstone
adjourned until Tuesday next.
There was another conference of the
Conservatives this morning in the residence
Of the Marquis of Salisbury. As hereto
fore, all present were pledged to secrecy.
The marquis, in an open letter, writes that
the imputation that the Conservatives desire
war with Russia is ridiculous. The neces
sity for such a letter, some Conservatives
Bay, is due entirely to the recent secret con
ference of the leaders of the party.
The question of the ministry is still very
much unsettled. Some of the Liberals be
lieve Mr. Gladstone will be compelled to re
turn to office, and his recent visit to the
queen is mentioned as giving the suggestion
the color of probability. The Conserva
tives remain confident that Salisbury will
accept office. There is a unanimous agree
ment that the Earl of Carnarvon will be the
viceroy of Ireland; Edward Stanhope, pres
ident of the board of trade; Lord George
Hamilton, member of parliament from
Middlesex, first lord, of the admiralty;
while Lord John Manners is spoken of for
postmaster general. Edward Clarke for at
torney general, and John Eldon Gorst solic
itor general.
It is thought the feel ing between England
and Russia will grow threatening again, as
the latter country does not regard the new
ministry as friendly. At St. Petersburg it
is said the appointment of Churchill to
India does -away with all prospect of a
peaceful understanding between the two ,
powers. The Daily News this morning says
that if the news of Churchill's appointment
is true, the peace of Europe and Asia will
be seriously endangered. Some think
these . strong . expressions may influence
Salisbury from' appointing Churchill, but
the prevailing idea is that no change will be
Ireland's lieutenant.
The Freeman's Journal, Dublin, in a
leading editorial upon the new British min
istry, gives a cordial approval to the ap
pointment of the earl of Carnarvan as lord
lieutenant of Ireland. The Journal holds
that he will be a neutral "viceroy."
Negotiations between the Liberals and j
the Conservatives are proceeding through i
the medium of the queen. The Marquis of
Salisbury urges that if the redistribution of
seats bill* is finally passed, the Conservatives
will be deprived of the constitutional alter
native of appealing to the country, should
the Liberals unfairly|hamper the conduct of
public business; therefore, the Marquis of
Salisbury, unexpectedly, after taking; the
best legal advice on the subject, decided not to
allow the . seats bill to pass into a law until
further consideration has been had. It is
impossible for the new bill to come' into
operation before November, hence Lord
Salisbury insists upon having Liberal pledges
not to wilfully obstruct the Conservative
leaders. The Conservatives are alarmed at
the tone of Mr. Chamberlain's recent
speeches, which denote an intention on his
part to harass the Conservatives to his
utmost. - The Conservatives insist that the
Liberals will yet be compelled to accept Lord
Salisbury's terms.' Under the threat of the
Conservatives that they will appeal to their
present constituents, it is expected that
Gladstone will succeed in persuading the
Radical section to agree to allow the budget
deficit to bo carried for next year, though
the Liberals gladly avoid giving a pledge in
order to induce the Conservatives to propose
ndpleasant taxation .that -would prove dis
advantageous to them' at the general elec
: tian.~j^£S___S9S^Y
Lord Salisbury asked a pledge of the Lib
erals that they would fairly ■■ consider the '
budget scheme, and - if they disapprove it
." would consent to let the deficit be carried to
1886, .and to allow, the Conservatives s the
whole V time of „V the house of ' com
mons during the ".remainder, of ' the
session. Mr. Gladstone declined to give
! a pledge regarding .an unseen - scheme of
finance. The News says , it is able to state
that Mr. Gladstone's ply is final and that
there is no choice of the matter., being ar
ranged by liberal concessions. The Con
servatives are signing a memorial to Lord
Salisbury, asking him to refuse office
unless a pledge be obtained faom the
Liberals. The Liberals have resolved to
stop supplies until the redistribution of
seats bill is completed. They will probably
oppose the making of the first lordship of
the treasury as a sinecure when a vote is
asked for the salary of £5,000 for that . po
sition. It is understood that Sir Stafford
Northcote has accepted a peerage regard
less of any action that may be taken.
The Standard* believes that Mr. Glad
stone is willing to resume office if the
Marquis of Salisbury declines. In that
event, it says, the coercion act will be
dropped, and Earl Spencer and the Marquis
of Harrington will not enter the cabinet.
The Liberals are signing a memorial to Mr.
Gladstone, asking him not to give way. •
• The Standard declines to believe that the
refusal of the Liberal pledge will prove a '
fatal impediment and hopes that Lord Sal
isbury will not despair of his task, but trust
to the patriotism of the moderate Liberals
for sympathy and support
The morning papers contain nothing fresh
regarding the political crisis. The Liberal
papers counsel the Liberals to hold firm
and the Tories cry "no surrender."

Brutality to Convicts.
Columbia, S. C, June 19.— The reports
are renewee of the barbarous treatment /of
colored convicts on the Savannah Valley
railway in this state. Nine of these unfor
tunates have died .recently, it is alleged,
from the effects of cruel treatment by con
tractors employes by the railroad company.
A few days ago a squad of eight convicts
were returning from work to their - camp
when one of their number escaped. < The
next morning . the remaining seven were
, stripped and beaten unmercifully, and in a
short time one of them died from the effects
of his whipping. . On another occasion
a convict saw a fellow prisoner attempt
ing to file off his shackles and did
not inform on him. He was so frightfully
whipped that •he has not , been able to do
any work since. Another - convict was
bound up with wires and beaten until his
back was left raw from his neck down, and
he is how lying in camp in a very critical
condition. It is said convicts are called up
at 3 o'clock in the morning in order to reach
their place of work, which is five or six
miles away; that they are worked until
after dark, and that they do not get back to
camp until about 9 o'clock at night. Only
one hour for rest is allowed in the day, and
that -at dinner time. Seven disabled
convicts ~ from the railroad camp
arrived 'at the penitentiary, in this oily,
last night. They were in a deplorable con
dition, and were placed in the hospital. By
order of the governor of the state, Supt.
Gipscomb . and Surgeon Pope of the peni
tentiary have gone to the convict camp to
make an official investigation into the mat
ter. There is no doubt but that the investi
gation will show that sufficient cause ex
ists to justify the demand which was made
so emphatically several months ago, on a
report of similar brutalities, that such ex
hibitions of inhumanity to these defenseless
creatures shall henceforth be made impossi
ble by abolishing the system of leasing con
victs outside the penitentiary.
Expiating a Brutal Murder.
Faremersville, La., June 19. Perry
and William Melton, father and son, were
hanged in the jail inclosure here to-day for
the murder of John W. Cherry, ah old far
mer, at his home in the northern part of
this (Union) parish on April 15, 1884. The
two murderers were neighbors of their
victim, but bad blood existed between the
families, caused by the Meltons' jealousy. of
Cherry's superior social and financial posi
tion. The two families had frequent quar
rels, but hostilities were delayed by old man
Cherry's peaceful disposition. On the
morning of s - the murder the /Meltons '.were
passing Cherry's farm •'.'•-- and ; saw the
old*, man working in his field. ' The elder
Melton called out to him that now was a
good time" to settle scores, and the two ad
vanced on Cherry, who retreated and warned
them off. Finally Cherry was compelled
to use his revolver, wounding : the elder
Melton in the arm. His , antagonists
then closed in upon him and at
tacked him with hoes. Cherry
turned and ran towards his residence,
calling to his wife to bring out the shotgun.
William Melton headed him off and got to
the house first Just as Mrs. Cherry
stepped out of the door with the gun Melton
felled, her with a handspike that
he found in the yard and seized the
gun.- , Meantime Perry Melton: came
up and held Cherry until William knocked
him down by a dozen blows on the head.
Cherry begged for his life, but William beat
him with the handspike till the old man's
head was pounded to a jelly. Mrs. Cherry,
who had regained her senses, took L her
dying husband's head In * her lap
but was brutally thrust aside. Cherry
showed some signs of life, and the elder
Melton thereupon told Perry to finish him.
He did so by crushing his skull. - The Mel
tons ',' hid in the neighborhood for several
weeks, finally escaping to Texas, where
they were captured. The drop fell at 1:37.
Old man Melton's neck was dislocated,
and, with the - exception of a
slight shrug of the shoulders he died imme
diately after the fall without a struggle.
His son William hung in terrible agony, the
loop having caught, over his chin in de
scending. It remained so, allowing easy
respiration. After fifteen minutes, his con
dition being unchanged, the rope was read
justed, and death resulted in eleven min
utes. Neither of them made any state
ment. Their execution was private.

Sentence Passed on Cluverius.
Richmond, Va., June 19.— The hust
ings court room this morning was packed
with the largest crowd seen there during
the four weeks of the trial of T. J. Clu
verius, for the murder, of Fannie Lillian
Madison, while hundreds of people filled
the corridors and the - street in the imme
diate vicinity. The cause of the gathering
was the expectation that the death sentence
would be "pronounced on : Cluverius and it
had been intimated that he would make
some statement The prisoner was brought
into court and occupied a seat behind the
bar with his counsel. He , appeared
calm and self-possessed. Clerk Lawton
told the prisoner to stand up, and pro
pounded the usual question as to whether
he had anything to say as to why death, sen-"
should not be pronounced against him.
The prisoner, In a rather low and husky
voice, addressing the court, said: "I will
say, sir, that you are pronouncing on an
innocent man. That is all I have . to say,"
sir." Judge Atkins proceeded then to pass
sentence, briefly but impressively, : fixing
the time of the execution on Nov. 20 next
The prisoner stood unmoved without mani
festing the least emotion, and when the
judge had concluded took his -seat quietly.

Gala Day in New York Over Its

New York, June 19. The . day broke
auspiciously for the formal welcome to Bar

was cloudless and the rays &$ the June-sun
were tempered by a gentle -southwest wind.
Along . the lower, river front"/ and the Bat-*
tery wall great crowds gathered early in the
day/ As' the morning wore on the multi
tude increased. Over the waters, which
sparkled brightly, all sorts of gaily decked
crafts sped hither and thither. The streets
swarmed with human life and many carried
small bands of music. The tall buildings
in the neighbornood of Bowling Green, not
ably the stock exchange, and r also several
dwelling houses, displayed the - stars and
stripes. Here and there might' be seen the
national colors of France. Governor's island
looked like a great emerald gem. The scene
in the : harbor - was*, one "Yy of
the liveliest description. - Nearly
every vessel," small or large, waved
the tri-color and the stars and stripes, ■
and all. were dressed up, so •to
speak, for the occasion; When the vessels
that were to escort the Isere to Bedlo's
island arrived in the * lower bay, the water
was swarming with crafts, and as far as
the eye could reach there were vessels with
out number. Every sort of vessel had
been pressed into service by ambitious
sight-seers. j Soon volumes of smoke were
belching forth from the funnels of the Isere,
; her propeller began to revolve, and she was
headed In the direction of Bedlo's island.
The French man-of-war, ,La Flore, !
headed the procession. Soon her gunners
opened the salute of honor by' firing twenty
one guns in the short ' space -of . sixty-one
seconds. Hardly had the smoke cleared
away : from her deck when the United
States man-of-war Omah replied with a
broadside. ; Then the Alliance and the
Powhattan fired their guns. The guns of
Ft. : Wadsworth ' thundered - out a salute as
the naval procession passed. Such a scene
as was then presented | has rarely been wit
nessed in the bay. One hundred steamers
and yachts with ; flying i ■ flags - : and.
streamers crowded with people, followed for
the Isere. The music of a dozen bands
floated over the water, while the war ships
thundered and the forts re-echoed with
booming guns. - - The guests on.the Atlantic
shouted themselves hoarse. The „ French
officers of the Isere stood on the quarter
deck bowing to the j salutes ; which , they '
heard on every side. - . All the way. up the *
harbor until the head of the procession had
arrived off Bedlo's island, the
shores - of New Jersey and . Long Island
resounded with the crash ; of ; , guns. It
seemed like V a battle .;' at sea without the
disastrous attendant circumstances. When
the anchor of the Isere was at*- length' low
ered and had obtained a firm grip, there
more firing of ■ cannon, -blowing of whistles
and shouting of people. Bedlo's island was.
crowded with spectators. Mcd had climbed
up to the top of the pedestal and v seated
themselves on the huge stones. The At

Late -Commissioner of; Agriculture,
Washington, - D. C. Sir: Tour account
for payment sf or the laboratory In the de
partment of agriculture from June 1, 1884 >
to April 3, 1885, has been adjusted in this
office per report of the first auditor No.
246, 347, and a balance has been found due
the United States of $20,229.' Your current
account show a balance due yourself of $578;
difference between the accounts, $20,807.
The . balance v found due the United States, .
$20,229, is a part of a disallowance made in
this account, as explained by the schedule
herewith .'transmitted.; As . shown r bv- the ,
schedule referred to. you have paid out from
the appropriation for the laboratory, of 1885, - ;
the sum of $20, 807, which should have been
charged to the appropriation for the - pur
pose of prorogation and the distribution of
valuable seeds in i 1885. The above sum
seems to have been paid for sorghum seed;
for pay rolls in preparing said seed, or other
seeds for distribution, and none of it seems
to have been paid for chemists or apparatus
for y the use of chemists or
microscopists ... or. for any ;i " experi
ments . made in the manufacture of
sugar made from sorghum and other vege
table plants. It seems very plain to my
mind that all of the above amount as stated
in the vouchers presented should have been
charged to the , fund appropriated for the
purchase, propogation and ■ distribution of
valuable seeds and not the laboratory fund.
I find nothing in the precedent of this office
to warrant an allowance of ' said - account in
the .form as how presented, and the amount,
$20,807, is therefore^ disallowed. § The bal
ance found due the United States, $20,229,
you will please deposit in > the treasury at
your earliest convenience in order that your
account may be closed on the books of the
department. Very respectfully, : V Yr y. V*

Information for Our Manufacturers.
Washington, June 19. Secretary Bay
ard has formulated a plan by. which he pro
poses to obtain for American - manufactur
ers, through the medium of the United
States consuls in Europe, all : the informa
tion' they ' desire - regarding manufactures
abroad. He has written to a large number
of manufacturers of all I kinds jj of articles
throughout the country, asking • them to
submit to him any questions covering sub
jects upon which they desire i information
regarding the manufacture of their respect
ive classes of goods in . foreign countries,
and these questions will be sent -to the
United States consul abroad, with instruc
tion to obtain the information sought Mr.
Bayard hopes .by this plan to procure for
our manufacturers such information as will
show conclusively whether in the price of
the raw material, the cost of labor and im
proved machinery the American or the
European manufacturers | have | the advan
tage in I the production of manufactured
articles. Secretary Bayard believes that the
possession of - such information regarding
the cost of \ manufacture and the price of
raw materials abroad will I also be of great
advantage to the United States government
in the collection of duty on imported arti
cles :of foreign manufacture. Secretary
Manning is in full co-operation with the
secretary of state in this new project.

Washington, June Macßea, the
■new captain of the watch at the treasury,
department, is making himself amusing to
all but the unfortunate watchmen. His
order directing subordinates to give military
salutes is -in full 'operation now. ; When
ever .an official- moves down a corridor,
watchman "after watchman goes out of his
chair, stands bolt unright, moves three paces t
the front, salutes, retires, and. sits down.
As the watchmen are numerous, and the
•movements of officials from one division to
another are frequent the salute pantomine
Is going on all the time. This saluting busi
ness has come to be looked upon as a huge
joke, at which even the higher officials can
not conceal their amusement. When Sec
retary Manning walked in this morning, ac
companied by a gentleman, the watchman
at y -: the door went through with
his :■/■■ maneuvers, v just as he
had been \ instructed. : The : secretary
looked at his companion and then put his
hand - to his . face, partially concealing a
broad grin and smothering a snicker. Yes

Inspection, tour, scrutinizing his men with
the ardor of a young . lieutenant fresh from

he must shave three times a week without
fail, another was directed to procure a new
necktie at once, j and so it went. Not a
frayed shirt-front or a missing one among
the buttons escaped the eagle eye of
Macßea. ________ .
How Stallo Got the Italian Mission.
Special to the Globe.
Chicj_go, June 19. — A. C. Hesing has a
lengthy, communication 'in - to-day's Staats
Zeitung in which he explains how the ap
pointment o* Judge J. B. Stallo of " Cincin
nati to be United • States minister to Italy
was brought about According to this re
cital Judge Gant and Carl Daenger, editor
■of the Anzeiger in St Louis, and ex-Gov.
Koernero- Belleville were the ; .;' first to rec
ommend the eminent German-American
jurist for the position, fortified .by a letter
from Oswald Ottendorf er, editor ■of ?. the
New York ■'•' Staats Zeitung. .No per
sonal l attendance ; ; upon the . president
to ,i urge )■ the fitness of V their candidate
for the mission had been thought necessary,
though, by these gentlemen, and A. C. Hes
ing was the first to do this and to - acquaint
President Cleveland f with the dissatisfac
tion felt by our German-Americans at the
comparative disregard to their claims in the
way of i' government appointments. 1 -/ Presi
dent Cleveland and Secretaries Bayard and
Manning both" assured Mr. Hosing that no
slight of the German-American element was
intended. Mr. Hesing ' thereupon pre
sented to Mr. Cleveland a couple of ; letters
from :■. the _• pen of Stallo, in one of :
which V the V latter y intimated ;;; that
the Italian mission would not be refused by
him. ■•''' To this the executive is V said to have
responded: "I should not wonder, as it is
the best place in the gift of the • govern
ment" Mr.' Hesing also presented a list of
the - German-Americans « appointed - ; in the ;
foreign service and at home during Presi

was after 10 o'clock this morning when
Gen.' Grant was aroused for. the day. He
had slept well after the ■ doctor , attended

through the morning. Dr. Douglas this
morning used the words after having , ex
amined his patient: "The general's voice
is I audible j this morning. He seems ( very.
we 11..; The swelling outside seems less- and;
t the irritation inside seems light -To -sum
up his condition it is very good, better than
a week ago. ! I think the change is begin
ning to benefit him." •(-.' . . '- - •
• • At : noon the general, just after being
dressed, 1 walked' out on the piazza : and
joined Dr. Newman and 8 the % family; who
again sat for a family picture. The entire
family is now here at the cottage. Late in
the afternoon Judge Hilton and' son came
up from Saratoga and sat with' the - general
and family upon the piazza more than an
hour. Dr. Gray of the insane asylum of
Utica was also a visitor of the - general's,
during the - afternoon. Dr. • Gray is an
extremely stout man and : Gen. Grant,
wrote upon a card, which he handed "to his
friend, this bit of grim humor: "your
shadow has grown no less since I last sajw !
you, but you will notice that mine has."
The doctor laughed; and the generakfaintly
smiled. The little engine of the Mt Mc-
Gregor railway . pulled Yup the y mountain
two cars foil of people from: Saratoga.' A
number had come up on the morning train,
and many strolled down the - paths by the;:*
cottage, and while the general, Hilton and
Drs. Gray and Douglas (, formed .a group
on the front corner of the piazza; the sight
seers formed a group among the trees at a
respectful _ distance. The : _ unavoidable
weariness caused by visitors \to the gen
eral was not wanting to-day, thbughnot
affecting him in a marked degree. v Miss
Drexel, the young mistress of the cottage,
came up on the afternoon train 1 and spent
the interval until the time ( of . the return
ing train with (the ( (ladies on,
piazza. Several times the general lent his
presence to the party. ' ■ The sick man's
right ear, oh the side of the ' glandular
swelling, § was to-day ' filled with cotton to
protect the ear, which is sensitive through
sympathy with the local difficulty. ; The
general coughed occasionally, though his
cough was not unusually troublesome. ■',: Y"A

by the " sick ( y man ( ; I from * his V place

in all, however, the general was hot out of
doors so much as yesterday. This evening
no ( noticeable '.variation Vof the conditions

tired. There had been no coughing after

demonstrated his assurance of '« good night

Baltimore, M. D., June 19.— For the

law in 1882, a white man was lashed here
by order i of , the : court. . Frank Pyers, . a
good-looking young fellow, was convicted' in
the criminal court • yesterday of beating his
wife and sentenced by the judge to six
months' imprisonment and to receive fifteen
lashes. The sheriff executed the sentence
this morning in the city jail. The weapon
used was a cowhide, three feet long and
clipped at the end. Pyers' arms were fas
tened to the cross pieces • above the post and
two | iron ; bands placed one , above and
the other below the knees. . ; At. j - the . first ,
blow l the wretched man's . every . muscle
quivered with pain "and his features worked
