The president's persistence in retaining tho Widow Thompson in the Louisville postoffice has had a discouraging effect on the blue grass politicians. One promi nent congressman has already expressed his intention to retire from the canvass for re election, as he feels assured that it would be impossible to hold the Democratic ma jority in his district together in the face of such discouragement. lie anjues that when the Democratic veterans who have borne the heat and burden of the conflict for twenty-five years are to be laid aside to make room for a Eepublican widow whose sinule recommendation is that she belonged to the same church in which Garfield used to preach, it is of no use to attempt tc keep up a Democratic organization in Kentucky. The discour agements under which the Kentucky Dem ocrats are laboring has awakened Mr. Wat- erson from his long silence, and he sig nals to the administration at Wash ington that it .is time to call a halt. After taking a careful review of the situation, Mr. Wattekson tells the president, through the columns of his paper, that the road is lined with In dians in ambush, and it is time to reverse the policy of the administration in regard to appointments. The talented editor of the Courier-Journal is just recovering from the effects of a long illness, and it i? possible that his mental vision is still obscured by a biliary tinge, and things seem worse to him than they really exist. At the same time it must be admitted ; that there is more reason than biliary f sophistry, in Mr. Wattersox's arraign '■. ment of the Democratic majority in con press for its failure to grapple with genuine measures of reform and retrenchment and ; disposition to follow in the line of Republi | can extravagance. The disposition of the ' Democratic majority to partake of the bene ', fits of any appropriation scheme deserves I the rebuke which the talented Kentucky ; editor gives. His exhortation to the | president to stand in the breach and, !by the use !of his veto power, to redeem his party from the ; error of wasteful extravagance is well • timed. He calls the attention of the presi ■ dent to the fact that while civil service re ! form is all good enough in its way, it is not ; the only issue before the country. A re ; vision of the tax laws in the interest of dis contented labor is of more importance in the present crisis than the matter of ap pointments. A reduction of government expenses and a reform of the tariff are of . more consequence to the public interests than squabbling over appointments. The Kentucky editor is right about it. He speaks well and to the point. Thus it is that the discontent growing out of the Widow Thompson's appointment may eerve a valuable purpose after all. It will bring the party leaders together in a dis cussion oi the policy that should be pur | sued by the administration which will doubtless result in great good to the Demo ! cratic party. LAND AND LABOR REFORM. The labor problem is the foremost issue in America to-day, and closely allied with it is the one relating to the public lands. The labor reform movement is closely allied ■ with land reform. The main difficulty to day is that there are more mechanics than 1 there is work, and that there is more laud than tillers of the soil. Such being the case, ! the remedy is plain enough. There must : be some inducements held out by the gov ernment to the laboring classes to settle on \ the public lands. Or rather the first i thing to do is for the government to I force the forfeiture of • all unearned and fraudulent grants of the public lands, i and then do something to induce the work ' Ing classes to leave the overcrowded labor field and go out to settle upon these lands. The argument is made that in time all the ! public lands will be occupied, and then I there will be •no outlet for the overcrowded ; labor field. Suppose that is so. That is a j matter for a future generation to meet and : settle. Sufficient unto the day is the evil ! thereof, and what this generation wants I to do is to find relief for the j strained situation now confronting us. The j evil from which the country now suffers ■ is an overcrowded labor field. There are I mare laborers than work. It is a strained | situation which must be relaxed. The remedy is in transferring the surplus labor ing population from the mills and work | shops to the public lands. The labor situa ! tion 19 strained and must be relieved. The only apparent relief is in inducing the sur plus labor population to occupy the public lands, and in order to do this will involve a j change in the system of taking up and set ! tling the public domain. The first thing to I do is to enforce the forfeiture | of all unearned and fraudulent grants I of public lands, and the next thing I •will be to adopt a system throwing open the public lands to settlement, which will induce workingmen to leave the over | - crowded labor field in the older commimi ; i ties and .go out upon the public lands. I Among the various schemes which have re- I eently been projected in regard to this mat j ter is a suggestion from Louis F. Post of ' New York, . who has long been identified j with labor interests, who proposes that the )_ public lands be opened to settlement ' on the condition that the settler . should pay » nothing, not even taxes, f. until the , land, irrespective of im ■ provement, should acquire a market I "*iue. and that wheu the land had acquired j a markot value ho should , pay an annual ground rent based upon tliat value aud ris ing anil failing with iluctuations. Or, 'in other words, that the land should forever ivumhi as public property and that the set tler should be a tenant forever. The argu nieut in tavor of this policy is that it would relieve the settler of the ftsar of being evicted by some speculator or corporation, whq had acquired the fee before him. The objection to it, however, is that it deprives the settler of permanent title in the land, which, after all, is the surest guarantee of a conservative and contented population. THE FARMERS KXOCKED. OUT. It is apparent that the Republican bosses in Minnesota intend to exclude the fanning ; element as far as possible from participat ing , in \ the work of constructing the next .Republican ticket in this state. A late convention means the exclusion of the fanning "classes. The main argument in favor ; of an early convention was that it would give the farmers an opportunity to participate in tho primaries and have a voice in the selection of delegates. To tho miuds' of the bosses who control the ttepublican organization In this state this was an argument in favor of a late conven tion. They do not want the fanners of Minnesota to have a controlling voice in the next, liepublican state convention. The little tub thrown out to a whale in the shape of an anti-butter'tne resolution will not suf lice to " blind the eyes of the Minnesota farmers to the fact that the Republican bosses are determined to exclude them from the control of the Ilepub lican organization. To a party that is in power witli a good record behind it, the time of holding its nominating conven tion would be a matter of no consideration. A long campaign would be no more detri mental to it than a short one. In such a case tho only question to be considered would be to fix a date that would be most convenient to tho members of the party or ganization. It was conceded that an early convention would be most convenient for the farmers of the state. But this very fact seems to have been the argument which weighed with the party bosses in fixing a later date. They dou't want the farmers to have a controlling voice in the conven tion. The candidates are expected to represent the interests of the monopolies, and in order to make a sure thing of it the bosses concluded to hold the convention at such a time as would be most inconvenient for the farmers. THE STORM EPIDEMIC. If this were not the age of common sense and enlightenment, the prevalence through out the world of the terrible cyclones aud hurricanes which have been creating such awful devastation and disaster, especially in this country, would ■ have been regarded with superstitious terror and awe by a panic-stricken people. As it is, fearful though their effects may be, they are prop ascribed to natural causes, altnough these may not be fully understood. It is certainly more than passing strange tbat two regions so remote from each other as Spain and the western portion of the United States should be afflicted simultaneously with the storms. If a coincidence, it is an exceed ingly remarkable one, and, if the result of the same primary causes, there is simply the demonstration that despite careful in vestigation the phenomena of such ele mental disturbances are but imperfectly un derstood. While the causes may thus be so completely hidden, something can be done to afford means of prevention. In this country the cyclones have raged fiercest in states where the flat or rolling surface of the country afforded little or no opposition to the progress of the storm. Were the Western prairies covered with a growth of timber it is more than likely that the too frequent storms would be of comparatively local character. The resistance of the for ests would prevent their onward sweep. But so long as the forests are permitted to be ruthlessly destroyed without replenish ment this valuable preventative cannot exist. Every owner of prairie land should be compelled to plant and maintain a certain number of trees upon his land. Besides the pleasing diversity which would thus be imparted to the landscape, the cy clone would find a substantial barrier op posed to its fury. One enterprising Dako tian has already had the prudence aud en ergy to plant upon his claim 21,000 trees. It probably is not possible for many other farmers to follow his example to that ex tent, but each can do a little, which in the aggregate will be a good deal. Let there "be more Arbor days and a better observance of them. IF WAR SHOULD COME. If the supposition is correct that Russia is urging Greece on to a resistance of the demands of the powers, with a view to wards provoking, eventually, a European conflict, into which Austria. and Turkey, with perhaps other . couutries, will be drawn, this country will also find itself concerned in a very material way, al though its part will be merely a passive one. Aside from the lanre sale of bread stuffs which would be disposed of abroad, there would be another and no less impor tant result. Already the military exactions of the various European countries . are so galling that emigration has been stimulated thereby. Should war seem actually near at hand emigration would increase enor mously. Some of it would not be of the most desirable character, the majority of the forced exiles would be of a class which this country could heartily welcome. Thous ands of peace-loving people are forced by military despotism abroad to take part in quarrel of whose real nature .they know nothing and care less. They are becoming too intelligent to submit auy longer to such a species of tyranny, and, though natur ally enough preferring to remain in the land of their birth, will turn their backs upon it rather than fight- the battles of thankless rulers. The rate of immigration indicates that this influence has already been felt. It will be greater as war appears nearer. Among the multitude of new-comers, the Northwest will attract many, and some of these are already knocking at our gates. They should not be denied admittance. MR. CAMPBELL'S IRMATIOX It will be a matter of congratulation to the people of this state to know that the contest over the marshalship is ended by the confirmation of Mr. Campbell,, A very bitter fight has been made against the confirmation, and in order to be sure that it was right in the matter the senate took its own time to consider the nomination. Parties who had charges to prefer against Mr. Campbell were invited to present them, and the. charges were given a patient and impartial hearing. The result has been that after a full inves tigation of the case the Republican senate declares that the charges were not sus tained and) vindicates the president's ap pointment by confirming it. This action of the c opposition senate is a complete viudica tion lor Mr. Campbell and will put an end to the squabble over his appointment. Li ""'5 t '■' ■ ' " — : — — 1.0 SHERMAN'S LUCK. Senator Siiekmax seems to be hoeing a stumpy row, as usual, in pursuing his pies idential ambition. Just as he thought he had the wires laid to capture his own state he discovers that his protege— For- A.KEH— has formed a combination with Mr. Blame which leaves Mr. Sherman out in the cold. People who supposed that Mr. Blame had retired from politics do not know the stuff the man is made of. Mr. Blame will go out of politics when the breath goes' out of his body, and not a minute sooner. So Senator Shebman may just as well commence preparing the cam SHE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE.

To a political party with au impregnable record the length of a campaign Is a matter of no consideration. Consqeuently the action of the .Republican state committee in determining upon a short canvass is a confession that the party is afraid of its record. And particularly so when this course was agreed upon In the face of the fact that the farming element demanded an «arly convention. - A party that is afraid to trust Itself to the guidance of the agricul tural classes is not a safe party to trust with power. "Pride jcoeth beroro a fall." When tho city at the lulls awakens to the fact tbat the bnso bull club upon which its pride was so flrir.ly fixed has fallen beneath the conquer or's bat, wielded by the wheat-proud Duluth of all places sho will, perhaps, uccept a tender of sympathy from the "village on the outskirts," which solely through the courtesy due visitors, permitted the. Duluth club to win it couple of aratuos, after an apparently spirited contest. But a score of 25 to 14 1 It is simply slaughter. Although Heiui Most Bas been indicted for Inoltlng riot and murder, It is to be hoped that ho will not be tried by a jury "of his peers." A jury composed of ; men pos sessing: oomrnon senso and strong convictions regarding the effloaoy of capital punishment should be especially chosen lor the trial. The National Millers are. in 6ession In Chicago, and the Chicago papers are endeavor iiiK to become familiar with the Minneapolis millers, that the feeling of terror which their slightest rumored movement In the wheat market has been in the habit of occasioning among them may be dissipated. A violent encounter is expected when the proposal to limit the use of the German lan guage comes up in the Austrian relchsrath. When an unprotected man rushes up against full-grown Gorman gutturals the encounter is very apt to be attended with violence. » Joseph Ardsox of Mandan, Dak., is the kind of man the Dakota and other pralrio re gions should hold up as a shining model to other Inhabitants. A man who on a single claim has the energy to plant 21,000 trees de serves substantial encouragement. Detroit is looming up as the coming 1 city in the matter of the base-ball championship, and already her papers evince a disposition to speak of New York and Chicago as provincial towns. There are occasions on which arro gance is in a measure excusable. The cablo.flashes the astounding fact tbat Mr. PAPAMiCHALOPOULoshas been appointed minister of the interior in Greece. And yet astcnishment'is expressed that the war feel ing is so prevalent. The name is concen trated riot and anarchy in itself. A bicycle race, wonderful in the way of endurance and record breaking by the con tcstants, is taking place in Minneapolis. The Northwest is never satisfied in doing anything unless it is done a little better than ever be fore. Senator Ei>munds and his Minnesota con freres, who have caused Marshal Campbell so m any bad quarters of an hour, will now realize the force of the a s aying, "It is hard to keep a good man down." Henry Watterson has sailed from New York, and the "star-eyed goddess" stands reudy to grant an interview to any one on ship-board who has a reliable cure for sea sickness. m With her ball nine winning repeated vic tories, and her harbor finally clear of ice, Duluth is persuaded that summer Is arrived and that it becometh her to put on befitting frills. The trail of the storm serpent seems to be over all, but Minnesota's ten ible experience a short time siuce has evidently won for her dearly bought immunity at the present time. As this is a Democratic administration and Ohio men have returned to their native heath, it is feared that many able-bodied voters may have been injured in the Ohio storm. The Campbells were a long time coming but they have "got there" at last. It will be "Marshal" Campbell on and after date, and t will be a very good marshal, too. —^^— .::•.;,'■ It is now said that early green peas are poisonous.

' When two or three base ball cranks are met together base ball is sure to be mentioned; and tho last game is gone over and discussed from beginning to end. They are sure to agree among themselves that if a certain play had been made or a certain player had been in good form, the result, would have been different.

The district attorney opened, the case for the people and named the ", bribery count . . In the indictment as the one on whicn the trial could bo hud. Then the prisoner's counaol moved to dismiss the case on the grouud that the section of tho statute uudur which the count is drawn does not upply to municipal officers. This wus overruled by the court. Tho Jury will be strictly guarded during the trial und will not be allowed uny communication except through the court. THE LABOR QUEST ION . LOCKED OUT. Twenty-Five Thousand People Out of Employment in Cliicuu o. Special to tho Globe. Chicago. May 18.— The wholesale cloth ing houses of the city at (5 o'clock this even ing decided to close for an indefinite period. This decision was reached at a meeting of the principal firms last night. It is caused by a demand made for an increase by the tailors. The wholesale linns claim this demand is wholly unreasonable, and cannot be granted; that their own margin of profit is bo small, and the competi tion of Eastern houses so sharp that any further increase of expense would be simply ruinous. The boss tailors claim that they were moved to make this demand on the wholesalers by the strike among the journeymen and the women stitchers. The tailors concede that the wages they have been paying their employes, now on a strike, have been low and the hardships of the strikers were many. At the same time, though willing and ready to keep these employes, they were unable to do so unless they gain better terms from the wholesale houses. Hence their demand on these houses and the result noted. "We have been driven to this by the un reasonable demands of the tailors," suid Mr. L, Simon, of the firm of Simon & Co., Monroe street. "They presented a schedule of prices which involved an incroase on old rates of from 33 to 50 per cent. We have no idea, how long we will remain closed but certainly until we can do business with some reasonable show of profit." This action of the clothing houses will throw fully 20,000 men and women out of employment. Western Boot and Shoe Men. Chicago, May 13.— Labor was the chief topic of discussion by the Western Boot and Shoe Manufacturers' association to day. About thirty delegates were present, representing either in person or by proxy a majority of the manufacturers in Chicago and other cities west. All the firms agreed at a meeting five weeks ago to give the eight hour day a fair trial for two weeks. To-day they unanimously decided to resume ten hours' work May 17. About 1,500 em ployes will be aft'eeted by this change. It was resolved that each employer should treat directly with his employes in the mat ter of wages. Failing to agree, either party may call upon \he executive committee of the association an adjustment. The association also unanimously adopted the following: Wishing to encourage and protect honest labor, we hereby resolve that we will not knowingly employ au avowed anarchist or socialist. The Curtin Labor Committee. St. Louis, May 13. — The managers of the railroads centering in East St. Louis appeared before the Curtin labor investi gating committee to-day and testified, almost without exception, that the strike in that point was wholly in support of the position taken by the strikers on tlie Missouri Pacific, and that they had no serious grievances of their own. In a few cases their switchmen demanded the Chicago scale of wages, but they felt cer tain that this would not have caused a strike. The K. of Li. Convention. Clevkland, May 13. — Apartments have been engaged at the Forest City house for the delegates to the convention of the Knights of Labor, to be held here May 28. There will be 175 delegates, and meetings will be held in an obscure hall on Ontario street. A prominent member of the order says that every assembly in Ohio, with but ten exceptions, will vote for Powderly and against Irons at the Richmond convention, which meets in October. A public meeting of German anarchists was held this evening on the West side. A squad of police iv citizens clothes was pres ent, but no arrests were made. A Threatened "Tie-Up." ■ Philadelphia, May 13. — A "tie-up" is threatened by the conductors and drivers on the lines of the Philadelphia Traction com pany. The men allege that the company is violating its agreement and is getting rid of the union men by discharging them. This the company denies. A committee of the men had a very unsatisfactory inter view with the president to-day, and they are in au ugly mood. An Unsatisfactory Experiment. Grand Rapids, Mich., May 13. — The Bissel Carpet Sweeper company has an nounced to its employes that the eight-hour experiment is not satisfactory, and they will return to the old style next Monday. Some other companies wish to return to the ten-hour system and the old system of wages, but the Furniture Workers' union has decided to insist on eight. Industrial Items. The trouble at the Morewood, "Pa., coal works has been settled, and the miners have resumed operations. All the large works are now runiug, ued no general strike is expected. Eight hundred cigarmakers have been locked out at Reading, Pa. A MURDERER RESPITED. Gov. Offlesby of Illinois Postpones an Execution. Special to the Globe. Woodstock, 111., May 13.— A trifle be fore 1 o'clock this afternoon Sheriff Udell received the following dispatch from Springfield, whither Juror Murphy and Patrick Dacey had gone to intercede be fore the governor on behalf of James Dacey, the slayer of Aid. Gaynor of Chi cago: Springfield, 111.. May 13, 1886. AsaD. Udell, sheriff of McHenry county, Woodstock. 111.: Make no furthei- preparations for the execu tion of James Dacey to-morrow; have res pited him, aud will send you official papers to that effect by Judge Murphy, who leaves here to-night and will arrive in Woodstock to-mor row at 11 a.m. (Signed) R. J. Oglesby. The sheriff immediately went to the jail and read the message to the priaoDer who smiled faintly and said: "Well, I suppose the law must take its course." He shows no particular signs of relief, but remains in a state of cool indifference as to what his fate may be. All of the forenoon he sat at the window of the jail corridor and watched the workmen raise against the scaffold, and evinced not a sign of fear or despair. The sheriff gava him this liberty at his own request, as he would feel much easier than to be locked in his darkened dingy cell to hear the pounding of the hammers. This act of respite on the part of the governor is not approved by the people here, as it will prove an additional burden and expense to this county. Mitchell the Better man. A St. Paul citizen who was in Chicago Monday night and witnessed the fight be tween Jack Burke and Charley Mitchell, says Mitchell had decidedly the better of it, and in another round would have knocked Burke out Up to the eighth round Mitch ell appeared to be toying with Burke, but after that he knocked him all over the stage. Once he knocked him through the ropes, and Burkes face was badly cut, bleeding profusely. A little later the men clinched, and Burke smeared Mitchell all over with blood, and the fighters looked like representatives of slaughter houses. That the fight was declared a draw, he said, surprised the audience. Wilkinson, End.. Blown Down. Gbeenfield. Ind., May 13.— News has reached this point from Wilkinson, fifteen miles distant on the Indianapolis, Bloora ington & Western railway, that the storm yesterday blew down all the buildings in town except three. Samuel White was killed and his wife was fatally injured. A boy named Shaffer was also killed and about twenty persons seriously hurt, several of whom will die. The wires are down and direct oommunicatioais cut off. The Ohio legislature has re-euacted the Scott law. RESISTING HOME KULE. Continuation of the Debate in the Com mons on Gladstone's Irish Measures. An Expectation That a Vote Will be Beached on the Bill on May "5. , The Premier's Wins of the Party Said to be .Losing Strength Dally. loyalists Reported to be Arming and Diilllnu In Various l'urtsol the Country. The Home Rule Debate. London, May — The house of com mons was crowded this afternotan in antici pation of an exciting discussion on the re sumption of the debate on the home rule' bill. H. Campbell Bannerman, the war secretary, in reply to Mr. Heaiy, said the statement made by William Johnson, Loy alist member for South Belfast, that Gen. Lord Wolseley declared If home rule were granted Ireland and he were ordered to suppress an Ulster rebellion, he would re sign and with 1.000 other British officers join tjie Ulster rebels, was an absurdity. The secretary added that Gen. Wolseley authorized hini to formally contradict any statement that he (Gen. Wolse.ley) ever alluded to the subject in any speech he ever uttered. Mr. Gladstone, replying to Sir Michael llicks- Beach, conservative, stated that the government would propose that the debate on the home rule bill be from day to day beginning on Monday. The government would not take Friday lor such day for debate because John Morley, chief secretary for Ireland, would then take occasion to move the second reading of his bill relating to the purchase and use of arms in Ireland. , The debate on Gladstone's Irish bill was then resumed by Sir Henry James, liberal member for Bury. He criti cised the measure. II t5 said he was only influenced by a desire to arrive at a right and just conclusion concerning the best way to govern Ireland [cries of ''Hedr, hear," from Gladstone]. The premier's scheme CONTAINED FIVE CONDITIONS: unity of empire; supremacy of ; imperial parliament; safeguards for rights of Irish minority; upholding social orders, aiid , a final settlement of the Irish question, but the bill offered no security whatever for the fulfillment of these conditions, because whatever Irish bill England might pass could be repealed next day by the Dublin parliament. The speaker said lie repro bated the threat of Ulster royalists to re sort to arms, and every one should dis courage such threats. But the govern ment : had mentioned what dyn amiters and assassins ■ would "do unless it was passed. Here John Morley corrected the speaker by stating that whirt ever had been said was that dynamiters and assassins would be delighted if the bill was rejected. Sir Henry, continuing, said the veto provision' in Gladstone's bill was inadequate to protect the Loyalist minority, because the police of Ireland would be the minions majority. The minority should not be thus deserted. [Cheers.] The ! speaker did not believe the bill would prove a final settlement of the Irish question, but did not believe Irishmen would use it simply as vantage ground for warfare on England to eventually obtain TOTAL SEI'AIiATION. [Cries of no, no, from Parnellites.] In conclusion Sir Henry said: "We have indeed now come to a parting- of roads. As the premier say 9, each member . must make his choice. I have made mine. I believe the bill will lead to contusion and cbaos. I hope the house will maintain un bioken the union as it at present exists be tween the three kingdoms.',' [Cheers.] > ; ' 11. Campbell Bannerman, secretary for war, said he did not believe the Irish would exhibit all the vices and none of the virtues of a nation. The very fact that all rival schemes for reform government in Ireland had been withdrawn to give the pres ent one entire possession of , the field, testified to the soundness of the bill. The late government allows things in Ireland to drift till English rule in Ireland comes to be despised. He be lieved tnat a majority of the house favored the cardinal principle of the bill. If so he would ask what could be more deplorable than the failure of the house to give legis lative effect to that principle. In conclusion Mr. Bannerman declared that the govern ment was quite ready to consider all sug gestions for retention of Irish representa tives at Westminster. [Laughter from the opposition benches.] Mr. Morgan, under colonial secretary, re plying to Mr. Charles Vincent, member for Center Sheffield, said Earl Grauville. secretary for the colonies, cabled to the Marquis of Lansdowne, governor general of Canada, asking him for full details of the seizure of the • AMEKIUAN FISHING SCHOOXErt, David J. Adams, atDigby, N. S., and re ceived a reply stating that the schooner had uot complied with the maratime law; had concealed her name, her port and regis ter; that the case would be investigated in the Halifax admirality court, and that no question of territorial waters was involved. Resuming the debate on the home rule bill, E. G. Clark, conservative, said if the bill was rejected the fact would not soon be forgotten. This expression of opinion was. greeted with significant Parnellite cheers. Mr. Redmond denied that if the ' bill was enacted it would place Ireland in the position of a colony. Mr. Dillon said that although he recognized the fact that the measure was defective in some respects, he was ready to accept it as a settlement of the question and would endeavor honestly to aid in ; its enforcement in an amicable spirit as re gards both England Ulster. It was im possible, he continued, that members should think the Nationalists . anxious to sit at Westminster . while the affairs of Ireland were . going, on to wreck and ruin. [Irish cheers. ] He appealed to those who agreed to the principle of home rule, although dissenting from the provision of the bill involving non-representation of Ireland in the imperial parliament, not to wreck the measure on its second reading on a point of details. Mr. Leathern, member rom-Huddersfield, reformer, asked whether Mr. Parnell would accept the bill as a settle ment of the Irish question. Mr. Parnell rose in his place and emphatically replied: "Yes." Mr. Leathern. then retorted that he had been unable to gather that idea from Mr. ParnelPs previous speeches. Mr. Healy at this juncture sprang to his feet, and turning to Paruell excitedly shouted: "Tell him he's a liar." Uproar ensued, and < Mr. Healy resumed his seat on cries of "order" from all parts of the house. . : AFFAIRS IN GR£ECE. . The Blockade in Operation Against Her Ports. Athens, May 13.— Copte de Mony, the French minister to Greece, has sailed for France. The ministry formed by M. iVal vls is colorless and the only duty imposed upon It is to convoke the chamber of depu ies. The Zea, a Greek vessel laden with arms for Antwerp, has been allowed to pass the blockading squadron. , Italian offi cers have notified the people of Andros, the citadel of the island of that name, that a blockade has been established, a notice to that effect having been posted in the mar ket place of the town. An Austrian tor pedo boat has seized a Greek , brig and towed it into Causto. . The chamber of deputies has been con voked for next week. Permission has been given to vessels ot < the foreign squadron to convey to Athens deputies from various island districts. GLADSTONE'S MEASURES. Mr. Parnell's Silence Not Properly Understood. London, May 18.— It Is stated that Mr. ParnelFs reticence has caused misappre hensions as to his views on the question of the retention of Irish representatives at Westminster and the nature and extent of his concessions. Mr. Paruell believes that Mr. Labouchere's references to : these mat ters .vrera; misreported. Mr. Parnell zwill speak, in the course of the debate, on the home rule bill. At a convention to-day of members of parliament i from :• the .*, Scotch burghs the supporters of Mt. Gladstone asked him to call a meeting tit the whole Liberal party, including the malcontents, for a conference. Mr. Gladstone In an inter view with Mr. llliiigsworth, member of parliament, said he thought it would be best U> leave the disputed questions with the house. He saw little chance that a gathering of the whole paijy would lead to a reconciliation. A FALSE BEPOBT. The report of the appointment of Gen. Koberts to the military command in Ireland is a ridiculous invention. Gen. Roberts is a conservative, and is openly hostile to Mr. Gladstone. No garrison changes in Ulster are contemplated. The Dublin executive re port to the government throws discredit on the rumors that Orangemen are preparing to light. LOSIBTG STKEStiTII. Further Secessions from the <>lad- t>tone I'arty. Londox. May Further secessions from the Gladstone section of the Liberal party are reported consequent upon the dis appointment created by Mr. Campbell-Ban nertnan statement in the liouse of commons this afternoon touching the home rule bill. A number of supporters of the measure made a combined representation to the government whips urging: that Glad stone should announce before a division is taken that if the bill passes the second reading lie will consider the result of the division as a simple attinnatibn of the prin ciple of home-rule and withdraw the bill and frame another measure for the next session. It is expected the debate will be concluded on the 35tn inst Numerous pe titions have been presented to parliament against the bill, including one signed by 12.000 Loyalists of Cork. ■; Tim Morning Post says: Mr. John Mor ley had a conference with several Parnell ite members of the house of commons, and hinted at the necessity of modifying the home rule bill in order to conciliate Cham berlain, but he was unable to persuade them to consent to changes. To Resist Home Rule. Armagh, May 13.— A large association of loyalists has been formed here for the purpose of forming and drilling opponents of home rule. The organization lias ar ranged for the purchase of an ample num ber of rifles at twenty-five shillings apiece, and quantities of war materials have already been obtained. It is stated that several bodies of men have already been under drill tor some days, exercising every day, and by leading gentry in this city do nations of money have been liberally made for the support of these loyalists' military movements, contributions ranging from £10 downwards. Loyalists everywhere here abouts express a stern resolve to resist home rule in any shape. Preparing? for Trouble. . Doblix, May 13.— Freeman's Jour nal says that Sir Frederick Roberts, com mander of the Indian army, will be recalled from India to take the chief command of the army of Ireland. The Journal also says that the garrisons in Ulster will be in creased. Foreign Flashes. The general assembly of Presbyterians of Ireland has prepared vii appeal to Presbyter ian churches iv America to support the re sistance to home rule. Schumacker & Rice, merchants, of London, have failed, with liabilities of £183,000. The i flrru has no nssets. The failure is due to the falling markets. Mr. Charles H. Spurgeon, the well known Baptist preacher, of London, is suffering from v severe" attack of gout. JT DIDN'T WORK. A Scheme to Save Blalne's Hench men miscarries. Special to the Globe. Boston-, Mass., May 13.— The Manchester Mirror. Stalwart .Republican, and not over friendly to Mr. Blnine, is moved by the re moval of Supt. Bigelow of the railway mail service, to tell this story: Nearly a year ago a prominent New England gentle man c called at the White house and made with the president this arrangement: '■ That no one who was offensive to James G. Kiaine should be appointed to succeed Joe Manly, whose term as postmaster at Augusta, Me., had expired; that Mr. Bigelow, who is from Maine, should uot be removed from the super intendence of the mail service, and that several other similar concessions to Mr. Cleveland's defeated competitor should be maae. In re turn for these favors the president was to have the help of Senators Frye and Hale in confirming Piilsbury and Chase, and some other pets whom he wished to put in office. Accordingly Col. Morton, who all the Democrats of New England insisted should be postmaster at Augusta, was not appointed: Mr. Bigelow was not removed, and a number of ather gentlemen saved . . THEIR OFFICIAL HEADS. Mr. Cleveland did as he promised, and did it, too, in spite of all the strength of nearly all the Democrats in Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire could muster. But the party of the other part, to-wit: the distinguished gentleman who called at the White house could not deliver the goods he sold. It turned out that he did not own I Senators Frye and Hale, and could not control their votes, and instead of helping confirm Piilsbury and Chase, and otherwise showing their gratitude for Cleveland's kinduess, they fought this brace of bandits to the death, and. not content with that, made open war upon the president's no tions in regard to the fishery, foreig-u mail and other- questions, and he, in turn, retaliates. He cannot well remove the inoffensive Demo crat he has commissioned postmaster at Augusta, but he shoves Bijrelow's delicate neck into the guillotine, and the rest of the spared monuments might as well be getting ready to go.

Special to the Globe. Chicago, May 13. — Millers' na tional convention concluded Its business at the Grand Pacific hotel to-day, and ad journed. It was decided to take no action I in regard to defending the millers against tha ; claims of the Downton patentees, wha threaten to bring suit for the al leged unlawful use by the mill ers of the United States of tha j secrets of milling,- or combination rollers, patented by Robert L. Downton. The niaUes*vas left to the decision of a sub- a 1/33551 '&&SSS <i&jir ' PKESIDEXT CROSBY. committee, but the opinion expressed was that the machine men were more properly I the parties to undertake the defence, if any was required, and as many of the millers in the country were not members of the asso ciation it would be unfair for the asso ciation to voluntarily assume the defence. The following papers were read: The Use of Centrifugal Wheels as a System, George T. Smith, Jackson, Mich.; Flour Dressing, Jonathan Mills, Cleveland, O.; Corn Meal Milling. D. H. Rank. In dianapolis; Flour Brands. Alexander Smith, St. Louis. Tlie association listened to some suggestions made by C. M. Wicker of the Chicago freight bureau in regard to the quality of the flour sacks now used for the export trade. He complained the material now used was so poor that the railroad com panies were forced to transport the flour except at the risk of the owner, who was obliged to accept bills of lading, in which he relieved the railroad companies of ali risks save that of train wreckage, which he regarded as a great injustice to the shipper. This difficulty, Mr. Wicker said, could all be avoided by the millers making theii sacks strong enough to carry their flour. The following officers were elected: John Crosby, Minneapolis, president; C. H. Leybt, Highland, 111., and Homer Bald win, Youugstown, 0., vice pres idents, and S. H. Seanians, Wisconsin, secretary. The following subcommittee to take any action that may be considered necessary in the threatened suit of Robert L. Dounton, was appointed: C. H. Seybt, Illinois, chairman; F. L. Greenleaf, Min nesota; I. H. Seaman?. Wisconsin: J. A. Hines, New York, and Alexander H. Smith Missouri. The meeting then ad journed, and this evening a number of the prominent members of the association took the train for Jackson, Mich., where they will inspect some improved machinery in use by the millers of that place. GEORGE BCI'LEK'S WIFE Takes Her I.egral >ame After Ilia . Death- Special to the Globe. Washington, May 13.— The Evening Star of yesterday contained the following notice: Chesney— Butler — On April 23, 1850, by Her. Bynon Sunderland, Josephine Chesney and George H. Butler. And a few lines below, in the death column, was this: But ler—On May - 11, 1888} «* Itf»' J TiH £ : '46th year, George H. Butler. Interment at Lowell. Not many who read in the local papers the statement that Gen. Butler and the few friends who escorted the remains of the bril liant and erratic deceased to Lowell were ac companied by a lady dressed in the deepest black, knew that the lady was the widow of the late George H. Butler. Few in the city know that he was married. The marri age announcement calls attention to a secret that has been well kept. The marriage has for years been known to those who have watched ( this eccentric man, but none cared to disregard the secret, and many endeavored to aid the noble and devoted woman to reclaim the man who has just died. The officers of the law here, who were such frequent guardians of the late George H. Butler, knew the secret of the woman, who was always on hand when needed, and they gave her whut help they could. Now that the grave has closed over the remains of George Butler, it has been thought best to let the world understand the secresy of the devoted woman who for six years has been endeavoring to reclaim her husband, and who now takes her legal name. THE SXOKJI IN OHIO. A Section of Country Visited by the . Storni. Cincinnati, 0., May 13.— The storm of last night which did such fearful work at Xenia, 0., was far re aching. It is heard of in Illinois, through Indiana and Ohio and at Winchester, Va. Here there has been an unusual electrical disturbance for the past three nights. On Monday night there was almost uninter rupted lightning from 11 p. m. until *i a. ra. Tuesday night a similar condition existed ac companied by heavy rains and hail, the latter of very narrow range. Last night ! there was another electrical storm with heavy ' rain and hail. The Xenia storm, however, was much more furious. The counties ■of Montgomery, Ciarke, Butler, Warren and Greene lie adjacent in Ohio, and form an elevated plateau with but shallow valleys and low hills. In the counties are the towns of Dayton, Sp.intrtleld Hamilton. Lebanon and Xenia. In the eastern county of Idiana, adjoining the district, i 3 Connersville. At all these places the rain of last nig-ht was of the heaviest volume ever known. Dayton measured four and one-half inches in about three hours'. Xenia was sit uated so as to meet the worst results. Shaw nee run traverses the portion of the city ad jacent to the Little Miami railroad, which lies lower than the main portion of the city The railroad embankment rises above the general level and the stream flows through it in a large culvert. Last night's rainfall wa3 entirely too much for the caprcityof the cul vert. The water rose and at last swept away the embankment, and with accumulated force rushed upon the small cot tages located in the low banks and without warning bora them from their foun dations. At Springfield the flood was nearly equal iv volume, bnt the drainage was better. East High street bridge was undermined and is a mass of ruins. In the eastern and south eastern portions of the city many families were driven from th«ir houses by the en croaching flood. Dozens of bridges over the streams were washed away. The losses cannot be estimated, but will be exceedingly heavy. At Lebanon the M. E. church, the Lebauon house, grist mill, ware house and several residences are unroofed! Nearly every railroad across tlte state was crippled. . Some will require several days to repair. An Elevator Burned. Special to the Globe. Jamestowx, Dak., May 13.— Yesterday morning the elevator at Tupper, owned by Van Dusen & Co., was discovered to be on fire. A chemical fire extinguisher, was used without avail. The explosion of the dust blew off the roof and the building was burned to the ground. It contained 35, 000 bushels of wheat, insuredfor 520.000, and the building for 56. 000. Some of the grain was saved. The loss on the building is $8,000, and on grain 512,000. The origio of the fire was sparks from an engine. Ready for lHuldoon. Special to the Globe.
