WHAT WASJHE USE Of Chasing the Janesville Elo pers to Europe and Back Again, . As it Now is Said That They Will Not Be Prose cuted? Detectives Hunting for Bood ler McGarigle, of Chicago, at Winnipeg. A Secret Marriage Confessed By a Woman While Very 111. Special to the Globe. Waseca, Minn., Aug. 30.—The latest from the Seymour-Henry elopement is that the county attorney, under whose orders Seymour was held, has directed the officers who have him in custody in New York to discharge him. This is done on account of the lack of any evi dence on which to base a criminal prose cution, his wife refusing to make com plaint against him. It is understood she would so complain if the woman would also be prosecuted, but as it was deter mined to let her go without punishment Mrs. Seymour declined to complain against her husband. Those unfamiliar with the intricacies of criminal law may be somewhat astounded to learn that after a long chase and capture, a man who appeared to have committed a great crime, at least a great moral crime, should thus be permitted to go unpun ished. Yet so it appears to be. It is reported that Mrs. Henry will return, but on what basis the report is founded can hot be learned. Neither Mrs. Henry, her brothers or husband have yet arrived. HUNTING M'GARIGLE. A Detective Visits Winnipeg to Find the Chicago lioodler. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 30.—A Chicago detective passed through here last even ing on his way West. He made many minute private inquiries about McGari gle, who, he was confident, from in formation received from agents in Eastern Canada, had started for the West a week ago, and must have passed through Winnipeg. There was a man answering to the description of McGari gle registered here last Friday at one of the second rate hotels, but he gave the name of Robert Fortescue. He remained in the hotel most of the day, only going out at nightfall. He left the following day, taking a ticket for Modsejaw, a station on the Canadian Pacific railway west. The conductor says he pur chased a ticket there for Columbia, a point in the mountains on the Columbia river, It is thought he took the boat there, going further north. The report that tie has been seen in Victoria lends color to the assertion of one of the Canadian Pacific railway officials that he, instead of getting off at Columbia, went through to the coast. The Chicago detective who was here yesterday pre tended to be searching for a young girl who had absconded, but admitted to one of the local authorities that his real mission was to search for McGarigle. TOO MUCH MARRIED. A Bride of Two Months Discovers Her Husband Has Another Wife. Special to the Globe. Brown's Valley, Minn., 30.— About three months ago Frank Remit, who has worked in and around the Valley for several years, and Mrs. Bur ns, a widow with three children, which she supported by taking in washing, drove over to A\ ilmot and were mar ried. They returned, the newly-made bride happy in the belief that she had made a good catch. All went merry until one day last week, when a bomb shell burst in the midst of the happy household in the shape of a tell-tale letter that told the bride that Frank had another wife living in Wisconsin, whom he had deserted several years ago. This is the way it happened: Frank received a letter from a brother, living in Wis consin, but which he was unable to read, his early education having been somewhat neglected. He turned the letter over to his bride to read for him. She read it, not once, but twice, and from it she learned the horrible truth. The letter revealed the fact that her adored young husband had another wife. Then the air suddenly became sultry and Frank fled from the presence of the woman he had grossly wronged. In fact, he fled from the town and at present his whereabouts is unknown. The much-abused lady has the deep sympathy of the Valleyites. Handy With a Pitchfork. Special to the Globe. Owatonna, Aug. Yesterday af ternoon, on complaint made by his wife and son, Frank Pfeifer, of Aurora, in this county, was brought before Justice Newsalt to answer for an assault and battery alleged to have been committed on each of them last Saturday morning. Pfeifer, who had been drinking heavily the night before, assailed his wife and son while the latter were sitting at the breakfast table and apparently without cause or provocation, beat them severely with his fists and also with a bootjack. He afterwards made attacks upon them with a knife, p'tchforkaud large stones. The defender.t paid $20 and costs for his trifling amusement and was reverely reprimanded by the court. Secretly Married. Special to the Globe. " Redfield, Dak., Aug. 30.—The funeral of Mrs. W. Olmstead, who died here of typhoid fever a few days ago," took' place yesterday. A sister of the deceased, Miss Carrie Reed, who has lived with th i Olmsteads for some years, is now quite seriously sick with the same disease. Since the latter was taken sick she has revealed the fact that sometime last winter she was clandestinely mar ried to a young man who is a telegraph operator at Elk Point. The object of the parties in keeping the matter a secret is not generally known, although it is supposed that the young lady's peo ple objected to the union. Her father lives in lowa, and is said to be quite •wealthy. . Southern Minnesota Fair. Special to the Globe.

Prior, Minn., Aug. 30.—The blowing well near Beardsley has acquired an ex tended reputation, and it is the talk of all the country roundabout. It is lo cated near the residence and on the farm of Mr. Flood, four miles north of the village of Beardsley. Mr. Flood has had a hard time at getting a supply of water for his farm use. but he came to the conclusion that there was water somewhere underneath and he was go ing to find it. He accordingly engaged a drill and went to work, and at the the time of striking the vein of air he was down 180 feet. After leaving the surface soil they passed through fifty feet of common yeiiow clay; they then passed through 110 of blue clay; next was ten feet of gravel interspersed with coal and slate, and lastly ten feet of clear slate, under which was the space occupied with this compressed air. The air as it comes up seems to contain a large amount of natural gas, which smells nearly like Fraser's axle grease, - and cannot be discerned easily only by placing the hands in the air and smell ing of them. It also leaves a greasy feeling on the hands. The temperature of this air as it comes out of the well is 50 degrees F., and it comes up with a power that has not been difinitely deter mined. A four inch one-half inch rod bolt thrown into the pipe is ejected imme diately and thrown up into the air about three feet. A twelve-inch bolt of the same sized rod placed in the tube keeps about three-fifths of its length out of the pipe, and when pressed down will be thrown out. Water thrown on the pipe is immediately turned into spray. A short pipe inserted partly in the current will produce a sound like a steam whistle, and can be heard three miles. There is constantly particles of coal and gravel, about nine narts coal to one part gravel, coming out with the column of air. As to what is below still remains a mystery. As dustings of coal are con stantly coming out, it would imply that there is a space between the coal and slate from whence comes the column of air and gas. But Not Killed. Special to the Globe. Northwood, 10., Aug. 30.— night about 12 o'clock, passenger train No. 8, struck a young man named F. S. Johnson, who was lying with his head upon the left rail of "the track, about a half a mile south of town. The engi neer saw him, and promptly reversed his engine, but did not stop until the train had passed by several rods. Strange to say, the young man was not killed, but his scalp was terribly cut up. At this writing he is unconscious, al though he will probably recover. Dis appointment in love is believed to have been the cause of his evident desire to commit suicide. He is a young man of good character and well thought of by all who know him. Open to Settlement. Washington. Aug. 30.—Acting Com missioner Stockslager, of the general land office, has issued the necessary in structions to carry into effect Secretary Lamar's recent order restoring to settle ment and entry the lands within the in demnity limits of and withdrawn for the benefit of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minne apolis & Omaha Railroad company, ex cluding those selected on the main line from Hudson to Superior, the Wisconsin Farm Mortgage company and the Wis consin Central Railroad company.

How the Wives of Naval Of ficers Secure Cheap House Furniture. Daring Texas Outlaws—A New York Swindler—The Chi cago Anarchists. Xew York, Aug. 30.—George H. Pell, of the firm of Grovesteen & Pell, the stock brokers who recently failed, was arrested to-day. Walter S. Stokes & Co. claim that Mr. Pell obtained $20,000 from them by fraud; that, on the day preceding the firm's assignment he bor rowed the sum mentioned on collateral, the value of which he misrepre sented. Pell was held in £15.000 bail. It Looks Like Theft. , Special to the Globe. New York, Aug. 30.—Developments that will create quite a scandal were made at a public auction of unused stores in the navy yards to-day. It has frequently been noticed that cuiious articles of household use get into these sales and are knocked down at ridicu lous prices to people with a "pull." Bidders were present to-day from almost every state. The Brooklyn Standard to-night says it has information that the navy officials conducted the sale very loosely and cheated the government. The silverware lot, for, instance, was stored in the equipment building. Be fore the sale, so it is charged, the wife and daughter of Naval Constructor Pook was allowed to go over the lot and picked out numerous articles to be sent to her house. They included sugar bowls, table cutlery, crockery and other household articles. The order giving Mrs. Pook permission to select the stuff was signed by Pay Director J. 11. Stevenson, who had charge of the sale. Other articles were taken by officers of the yard for their private use till less than 100 pieces were left out of a lot of 300. The officers concerned make no explanations. TEXAS OUTLAWS. They Hold Their Own Against the Officers. Houston*. Tex., Aug. 30.— Wed nesday last, four of a gang of horse thieves which have been making raids near here for some time, rode to Thomp son's switch, a small station seventy miles from Houston, mounted on thor oughbred horses. They ordered dinner, after which they got drunk, fired off their pistols and terrified the inhabi tants of the settlement, when they rode off in a north westerly direction. On Saturday John Williford. a farmer and stock man. of Cipresston reported to Sheriff Ellis that he had two horses stolen from him on Thursday, and that the thieves were still in the vicinity of his farm. Sheriff Ellis started at once for Navasota. where he organized a posse and started after the outlaws in hopes of heading them off. Yesterday morning two men rode into Houston and notified Deputy Sheriff Albert Erichson that the outlaws were camped at Eureka, five miles from this city. Deputy Ertehson mounted a horse and immediately started for the camp of the outlaws. On arriving at the spot where the outlaws were camped, Erichson dis covered the gang were gone. After riding about for some time, the deputy found three men camped under a tree on the prairie. He at once telegraphed to Houston for assistance. A posse under command of Capt. Lubbock at once left for the scene of action. On arriving at Eureka the posse separated. Deputy Sheriff Erichson and a part of the posse proceeded in the direction of Smokeyville, and the remainder, under Capt. Lubbock, heading for the prairie. The latter posse soon struck the trail, and in a short while located the out laws, who were still camped under the tie;. Capt. Lubbock then FORMED HIS POSSE in line and advising all to reserve their fire until within thirty yards of the out laws, began advancing toward the camp. The outlaws seeing this, quickly saddled their animals and started out at a quick gallop. After riding a few mo ments the leader of the outlaws, who was riding a magnificent roan charger and having in his hat a wavy black plume, threw his Winchester on his arm, and slightly turning in his saddle, began shooting his rifle, sending shot after shot at the officers. The other out laws, who were armed with six-shooters, also began firing at the posse. The posse of Capt. Lubbock reserved fire as ordered, until it was evident that the outlaws would reach the timber. The command to fire on the robbers was then given, and about forty or fifty shots were exchanged, the outlaws halting and making a desperate fight. During the skirmish the horse of Capt. Lubbock was killed. -One of the German citizens, named Kass ner, who lived near Hockley, was wounded in the arm by a rifle ball. Af ter the encounter on the prairie, Capt. Lubbock returned to the city and an other party started out in pursuit. It is learned that the sergeant of a convict camp near by had a pack of bloodhounds on the trail, but withdrew them for fear the outlaws would kill them. From the peculiar method that the outlaws had of lying low on their horses and quick wheeling in running and firing, it was thought that they were a part of the old Sam Bass gang, who defied the state au thorities of Texas a few years ago. From the large rolls of money displayed by the outlaws on their visit and drunk en spree at Thompson's Switch, it is confidently thought that they are the same gang who robbed the Southern Pacific train at Flatonia in June. A dispatch was received from Sheriff Ellis at Cypress late last night stating that he was on a hot trail and expected to bag his game before daylight. The robbers are game and desperate, and a bloody battle is anticipated should they be dis covered. SUSS A SWINDLER CAUGHT. He Has Lived High, But is Now in Trouble. . New York, Aug. 30.—For many" weeks past the wholesale wine and liquor merchants, the brokers and the wealthy saloonkeepers have been pes tered by two men who had tickets to sell for various excursions and balls given by the "Turtle Bay club," the "Merry Mohawk's league" and the "St. Aloy sius : Benevolent . association." The tickets were nicely engraved on heavy card board, and hundreds of them were 1 sold. The excursions and balls, how ever, never came off, and a week ago Michael Dolan, of No. 18 Bleecker ; street, was arrested as one of the men on the charge of obtaining money under | false pretenses. The evidence against' him was insufficient, and he was dis charged at Jefferson Market police: court. Dolan was -again a prisoner yes-; terday on a similar charge, which this time is well substantiated. Edward L. Snyder, a wholesale liquor dealer, of. No". 121 Front street, appeared as com-; plainant. He said Dolan had a month ago represented himself to him as a col lector for the New York Bartenders' union. He gave Dolan $10 as his dona tion to the union, but afterward learned that he was not in any way connected with the union, and was not authorized to collect funds for it. Detectives Mc- Manus and Bruner, who arrested Dolan, have been looking up his record. They say that he has collected over $700 dur ing the last few weeks by playing the part of collector for the Bartenders' union, and that his profits this summer from the sale of tickets for mythical balls and excursions ran up into the thousands. .... "? 'V THE CHICAGO ANARCHISTS. They Probably Have Only a Week More to Live. Chicago, Aug. 30.—A week from to day the fate of the anarchists now con fined in the county jail will be made public. The supreme court meets at Ottawa Tuesday next, and the decis ion on the appeal will be among the first papers to be handed down. As the fated day approaches the condemned men are evidencing numerous signs of anxiety, and although it is given out by their friends that they are confident of securing a new trial, their actions belie the statement. Sheriff Matson, more over, is not a whit less anxious than the prisoners themselves. He dreads the task which he will be called upon to per form should the law be permitted to take its course, and he is credited with hav ing on several occasions expressed to intimate friends his fears that should the anarchists swing his own life would pay the forfeit. That is to say he is profoundly impressed with the convic tion that a policy of revenge will be in augurated by the sympathizers with the doomed men, and that his own name would be among the first on the roll of retaliation. Meanwhile it is given out that arrangements have been made by which the sheriff will receive advance notice of the character of the decision and should it be unfavorable to the prisoners, they will at once be searched and placed in separate cells. The visits of friends and relatives will also be stopped, and every possible precaution will be taken to frustrate any scheme or plot for their release or the escape of any one of the number. The McGari gle episode has taught the sheriff a VALUABLE LESSON and he does not propose to be caught a second time. Just what step will next; be taken, should the decision of the su preme court point in the direction of the gallows, is a mooted question. Counsel say that they will endeavor to get the case before the supreme court of the United States, but some of the old est and most experienced members of the Chicago bar do not hesitate to. aver that there is not a solitary feature in the case which would warrant a justice of the supreme court in issu ing a writ of supersedas. If this view of the matter proves correct nothing, remains but an appeal to the executive clemency of Gov. Oglesby. Little is ex pected from the court of last resort, although the defense committee, which willr esume its work on Wednesday if the decision is against the defendants, say that the appeal will be backed up by a petition miles long, and the signa tures upon which will represent every state and territory in the Union. Presi dent Cleveland cannot possibly inter fere in the case, although there is talk to the effect that his interposition will be asked. Nor is it within the bounds of reason that the German or English government could be induced to plead for the lives of the prisoners, who, not having shaken off the yoke of allegiance, are still natives of those countries. In short, the indications are that the su preme court is the only bar between the condemned men and the satisfaction of the law. and that should the decision to be handed down sustain the verdict of the court below, there is no power on earth that can or will prevent the Hay market tragedy being expiated upon the scaffold. ■ Two Chicago Crooks. Brooklyn, Aug. 30.—John Harris, a bookkeeper, was arrested here to-day charged with victimizing several Illinois firms in sums ranging from $1,500 to $4,000. One of the victims was Hesseo & Co., stove manufacturers, of Chicago. Two Peoria firms also suffered from his manipulations. He was arrested on the strength of a telegram from the chief of police of Chicago. Byron M.Howard, of Chicago, was also taken into custody charged with obtaining a loan of $2,G00 from the German and American Loan and Trust company, of Philadelphia, by false representations. Both prisoners are held for requisitions from the gov ernors of their respective states. Had No Leader. Flemingsburg, Ky., Aug. 30.—Over 100 colored men gathered here last night to lynch the negro Coleman, who as saulted a white girl near here recently.. The mob lacked a leader, however, and no attempt was made on the jail. Elihu and Joe Hughes, who. it is alleged, as saulted thirteen-year-old Fannie Berner, a few weeks ago, were badly scared. Had Coleman been lynched these two brutes would have suffered a similar fate. There is now no evidence against these two men, and they will be re leased, Fannie Berner having been spirited away by friends who did not want her shame paraded in a court of trial. ■'.'.:,. Five Times Married. i Baltimore, Aug. Clinton E. Williams, who is 23 years old, arrested yesterday on the charge of bigamy, had a hearing this morning, at which it de veloped through his own confession that he was a polygamist, his wives are five in number, and he married them on the following dates: In San Fran cisco in 1883, he married his first wife, Louisa H. Keyser, 135 Ridgley street; Baltimore, Sept. 4,; 1834, Lena Morse;; New Orleans, in 1885; in 1886 he mar ried a woman in Philadelphia, and on: July 25,1557, he married Nellie Hewitt, of Baltimore. Kicked to Death. ZfM Indianapolis, Ind., Aug., 30.— Joseph Wallace, a patient in the In diana insane hospital," died a few days ago, and his body was sent to his rela tives with the information that his death was caused by hasty consump tion. A brother of the young man sus pected something wrong and had an ex amination of the remains. On the breast was* found a bad bruise, where the patient had evidently been struck or kicked by some one. George Wal lace declares that his brother's death was caused by brutal treatment and that he will hold the hospital officers responsible for it. ■ J" A False Report. -. ; Lawrence, Kan., Aug. 30.—Dr. V.

The War on the Irish National League Made for Polit ical Reasons. Progress of Evictions on the O'Grady Estates Fo reign Notes. : By Cable to the Globe. : London, Aug. 30.— report from Copenhagen that the czar is ill with rheumatism and carries his arm in a sling because of the pain arising from that malady, is not generally believed here, but rather it is suspected that he is suffering from the effects of a wound received from the pistol of the nihilist who, disguised as. an officer of the Guards, tired at the emperor as he was journeying from St. Petersburg toKras azseloa few days ago. The guarded despatch announcing the occurrence admitted that one of the assailant's bul lets perforated the imperial coat, and the inference is that it also pierced the cuticle, if not the flesh of the czar of all the Russias, since Russian despatches relating to imperial state matters, or the movements, health and safety of the czar are usually constituted of one part truth and ninety-nine of fiction, mys tery and unadulterated falsehood. A CLOSE ESTIMATE of the value of the grounds upon which various official and parliamentary opin ions on the subject are based induces the belief that parliament will rise for the recess on Saturday, Sept. 10. The supply bill will be pushed with all pos sible haste and the other matters which the government a few days ago hoped to dispose of before the adjournment, will, without doubt, be laid over until the next session, the present temper of the members showing pretty conclusively that these bills could#not possibly re ceive the attention they require during the present session. The Irish credit votes will be fiuished on Friday and both parties will then begin extensive preparations for a lively campaign dur ing the recess. Already a %| - GREAT MANY ENGAGEMENTS have been made for speeches by prom inent members and before the final day of the session arrives every one of the members of both of the great parties whose oratorical ability is known, the Pafnelites being included with the Lib erals, will have been booked for a series of stirring addresses to the electors. Mr. Goschen and several other speakers of equal prominence on -the; government side have thus far been engaged to de-: liver one speech a week each, and it is likely that the number of their engage i ments will within the next ten. days De increased to at least three a week. The settlement of the question of - SUPPRESSING THE LEAGUE s still hangs fire. Tlie government, in . view of the fast changing state of pub lic sentiment, does not dare to apply the power it demanded and secured upon the representation that its application to the. conduct of affairs in Ireland was vitally necessary, and the unionists are becoming more persistent each day in their demands that the proclamation be not enforced, while the Tory squires in crease their clamor for the total annihi lation of the Irish organization. The government can snap its fingers at the .suggestion that its standing and strength is impaired by Irish evictions, but it cannot ignore the rapidly increas ing power of the popular protest against the proposal to make war upon a polit ical association for the sole purpose of ' CRIPPLING AN opposition party. Evictions are too common and too often justifiable to attract more than local notice, but the government's war upon the league brings forth as em phatic condemnation from Scotland as from Ireland itself, and the report that the cabinet to-day decided to confine the proclamation to certain districts is undoubtedly true, and, if so, equivalent to a square back down on the question of suppression. Timothy M. Healy, M. P., one of the foremost of the Irish par liamentary orators, declined . a particu larly flattering and highly lucrative offer to make a lecturing tour of America in consequence of the government's proc lamation of the league which necessi tates his presence here. '.'.;. i , '■- THE FRENCH MOBILIZATION .operations will begin to-morrow and their results will be watched with close attention by the various nations of Eu rope and more especially by Germany. Already the German press, actuated by apprehension, jealousy and hatred of everything French, are predicting that ; the work will end in a flat failure to ; achieve the objects sought and the most spacious arguments are resorted to to convince the German reader and the outside world that the matter is not worth talking about; yet no German paper ignores it, for all that. .'- M. Stambuloff is making very little headway in forming a Bulgarian cabi ■ net.

At this point King-narmon entered the house, and Mr. Healy repeated his assaults upon -him in a violent and taunting tone. Col. King-Harmon said the Cremerne affair was a boyish escapade, and the Weldon story a lie. Mr. Healy said he did not blame King-Harmon for accepting office, but he did blame the government for-' supporting a law-breaker and re : leased convict. Col. King-Harmon ap pealed to the chair, who censured Mr. Healey for his language. . Mr. Healey accepted the rebuke of the chair, but i said that King-Harmon was a landlord ' where rents nad been reduced by the land commissioners. It was wrong, therefore, to place him in a position where he could influence the appoint ' ment of commissioners. , Concluding, • he moved a reduction of the vote of credit to £2,000. Further discussion took place, Messrs. Balfour and Smith testifying to the efficiency of Col King-Harmon as under secretary for Ireland, and the motion to reduce was negatived, 113 to 52. -' ;»cM>gfflß»g»fgr|l|Mljy|| i'l Mil 111 ___i'WWI '■■'•• The League Programme., ;f Dublin, Aug. 30.—William O'Brien, ;: editor of United Ireland, presided to . day over the fortnightly meeting of the Irish National league in this city. The meeting was unusually large. A num ber of Catholic clergymen were present.

Mr. O'Brien, said that the first branch of the league against which the government . should issue -a proclamation would hold its meeting with closed doors and refuse to open them for the police, even if they demanded admittance. This would leave the police nothing to do but break their way in, if they were determined to en ter. As the police would probably re sort to this violence, the central branch of the league would then ask the lord mayor to grant them the use of the city hall, with special police to defend it during league meetings therein. A majority of the Dublin city council, as well as the lord mayor, are strong Na tionalists and leaders in the league. THE O'GRADY EVICTIONS. The Officers Find the Job Given Them a Tough One. Dublin, Aug. 30.—The^ evictions on the O'Grady estates at Herbertstown began to-day. The bailiffs were backed by 100 soldiers and 800 policemen. All the houses occupied by the tenants were barricaded and guarded for de fense. The house of Mrs. Crimmins, a widow, was the first advanced upon by the bailiffs. The widow and her friends were well armed with paving-stones and boiling water, and both were show ered upon the bailiffs with such telling effect that they were repulsed no less than four times. The sheriff's men in their attacks attempted to crowbar their way through the walls and roof, and Mrs. Crimmins had the scalding water poured over their heads, faces and necks. After the fourth re pulse of the bailiffs the police attempted to s.orm the house. They also were driven back. Finally" a joint rush was made by the bailiffs and police and the house was broken into and captured. It was found that the defenders of the widow's habitation numbered but nine persons—five men and four women. All were taken pris oners. A large crowd had collected about the house to witness the contest. The crowd all sympathized with Mrs. Crimmins and did all in their power to cheer her up in her battle and to annoy and exasperate the officers. When the widow's party were at last overpowered the crowd became frantic and pressed closely, up towards the house. The prisoners, when they were led out. sang "God Save Ireland." The crowd joined in the singing and became so demon strative that the police" had to cut their w ay out with batons. Three tenants were evicted to-day. Capt. Plunkett was in charge of the evictors. The police made desperate charges against the crowd and specta tors and used their batons freely, injur ing Mr. Condon, M. P.. and several En glish visitors. Several more tenants will be evicted to-morrow, IRATE MR. HEALY. He Stirs Up the Animals in the House of Commons. London, Aug. 30.—1n the commons on the question of the vota of credit for the office of the chief secretary for Ire land, I. M. Healy violently assaulted Mr. Balfour and Col. King-Harmon, al luding to the former as an ignorant Scotchman, careless of the duties of his office, and stigmatizing King-Harmon as a convict, because of his previously hav ing assaulted a policeman in the Cre morne gardens. He also accused the Irish under .secretary. of hav ing induced reporters for the Times to suppress- their account of the occurrence and also of having threat ened to shoot a man of the name of Wel don. The chairman reminded Mr. Healy that Col. King-Harmon was not present. Mr. Healy retorted that Col. King-Harmon was within call, if he de sired to defend himself. Mr. Healy continued his denunciation of Messrs. Balfour and King-Harmon, declaring that Mr. Balfour had been appointed to the office of chief secretary because he despised Ireland. The chairman, upon Mr. Balfour's appeal, ruled Mr. Healy out of order. Mr. Healy accepted the ruling but The Cabinet Alarmed. London, Aug. 30.—A cabinet meeting was held to-day. It was hastily sum moned, and it is understood that the ob ject of the conference was to take action respecting the serious and determined opposition of the Liberal-Unionist lead ers to the governments' action in pro claiming the Irish National league. It is reported that the cabinet has decided "to modify the proclamation so that it will appiy to certain districts only. A Tribute to the Queen. • London, Aug. 30. — Mr. Gladstone, speaking at Hawarden today, said the most important political change that had taken place during the reign of Queen Victoria was the re-establishment of a representative parliament.

Berlin, Aug. 30.—The annual assem bly of German Catholics opened at Trev esy to-day. Three thousand delegates were present.

Miss Harton had met him while traveling in Europe, and he accompanied her and her father to this country, and on the steamer she became affianced to him. He did not come up to her expectations, however, and on Sun day evening she told him that she could no longer receive his attentions, having proof that he was a gambler and a con fidence man and only seeking her for tune. ~ Snyder then drew a revolver and fired two shots at her, one taking effect behind the right ear.

A Plan to Make it a Feeder of the Wisconsin Central. A New York Paper Says Some thing About Mr. Broy ton Ives. Still Pushing Things on Mani toba's New Road to the Border Line. Chicago, Aug. 30.—1t was reported here to-day that the Wisconsin Central company is heavily interested in the deal on foot to oust the present manage ment of the Northern Pacific, the pur pose being to turn the Northern Pacific traffic over to the Wisconsin Central lines, and to make the Central's Chicago terminals more valuable. The latter property represents an outlay of 16,000,000, and : the larger part of ff the money was advanced by J. A. Rockafeller, of ; the Standard Oil company. At present but two companies are using the facili ties, the Wisconsin Central and the Min nesota & Northwestern, and their busi ness is not sufficient to pay the interest on the bonds. Rockafeller owns $5,000, --000 of Union Pacific stock, is a large shareholder in the Oregon Transconti nental, and, with Elijah Smith, has pooled issues to secure control of the Northern Pacific, as stated. Both par ties are actively canvassing among Chi cago shareholders of the last mentioned company to secure the use of proxies at the coming elections. A SERIOUS STATEMENT Made by a New York Against Certain Roads. ' New York, Auk. 30.—The substance of the following appears conspicuously in the Sun. this morning:. There was practically an absence of distressing rumors in Wall streetyesterday,and the. change from last week.when the air was fairly laden with reports of impending disasters, was grateful to nearly every one. The most serious statement, how ever, was made in reference to the Ore gon & Transcontinental company, and was to the effect that through the specu lations of some of its directors it had be come saddled with $3,000,000 of Oregon Railway & Navigation bonds, which in creased its floating indebtedness to $11,000,000. This charge has no basis in fact. The bonds referred to were part part of an issue sold to a syndicate, and as the Oregon Railway, & Navigation company wanted the money for them, pending" the delivery of the bonds,it bor rowed . the: money from the Oregon & Transcontinental company, giving its notes for the amount and the bonds as collateral. Granting that the Oregon & Transcontinental may have had to bor row some of the money to make this transaction, it holds the notes and the bonds as an asset against whatever lia bility it may have incurred on account of the transaction, and is no worse off financially than if it had not engaged in this piece of financiering. The whole matter was probably within the province of the Oregon & Transcontinental, which was formed to build and financier the Northern Pacific and allied companies. It may be noted that on account of its operation in behalf of the Northern Pa cific company it is now trying to collect a claim against that company of about $3,000,000. Its efforts to have this claim adjusted are spoken of by some of the Northern Pacific people as an effort to wreck that company. Wall street would not have known much about the attacks referred to had its attention not be'en called to them by A COMPREHENSIVE SUMMARY that was published on Friday morning by Kiernan's news agency, the mana ger of which appears to have been ig norant of that section of the law relat ing to libel, which sets forth that the previous publication of a libel is no de fense for circulating the same. Mana ger William P. Sullivan, of Kiernan's, does not appear to have been alone re sponsible for publishing the matter, so far as Wall street is concerned, since he was instigated cor in induced to do so by Director Brayton Ives, of the Northern Pacific Railroad company. An investigation of the re lations of these two persons to the wider and more complete publication of the attack would reveal some interest ing facts. Since Wall street has learned of the part Director Ives played in the matter, and has, in consequence of the row it has raised, procured copies of the entire article, the expression is very general that the literary work is, to say the least, a very close imitation of Di rector Ives' style. It is also remem bered that only a few months ago Di rector Ives was caught practically in the act of filling the financial column of the Evening Post with misstatements calcu lated to depreciate the Oregon stocks. Friday's effort was more successful, for it unquestionably helped knock 3 per cent, off the price of Oregon & Trans continental, and 5 per cent, from Ore gon Railway & Navigation. No one can complain that the libel was not ef fective. Naturally Mr. Brayton Ives' persistent attacks upon the Oregon com panies and those identified with them have excited a good deal of interest in the street, as Ives is prominent in the management of the stock exchange, being an ex-president and now a gov ernor and a member of the law com mittee, and also of a special committee that is inquiring into the causes of the present dullness of business on the ex change. A Strike Threatened MiLWAVKEE,Aug. 30.—A special from Waukesha states that the locomotive en gineers employed by the Wisconsin Cen tral railroad threaten to strike against H. S. Barnes, the superintendent of machinery in the shops at that point. Mr. Barnes has offended the engineers in some manner, but the malcontents are reticent on the subject, which is now in the hands of the brotherhood of locomo tive engineers. A resolution demand ing Mr. Barnes' removal has been sub mitted to the management of the Wis consin Central company. ZZify- Interstate Cases. Washington, Aug. 30.—The parties to some of the cases appointed for hear ing by the interstate commerce com mission in Chicago about the 7th of Sep tember, having asked for a postpone ment until October, it is probable that the commission will give its assent; and that it will hold no public sessions after concluding its . labors :at Rutland, Vt., until the middle of September, at which time it meets in Minneapolis :to hear I a series of cases relating chiefly *to the ■ - . .. ■■ L- --: "■ THE GLOBE The Leading Sporting Paper OF THE NORTHWEST, > And the Recognized Authority.

The most important case to be heard is one in which the Ameri- , can trunk lines are presumably inter ested as against the Grand Trunk, being _ substantially that the latter, a foreign corporation, is making departures in the matter of through as compared with local rates, which, under the interstate law, the American roads are compelled to heed. ~'f_f:_ff:i .'.' f Manitoba's New Road. Special to the Globe. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 30.—The wort of grading the Red River Valley roac was completed to-night, aad track lay ing will be commenced as soon as the rails arrive. Considerable uneasiness ii felt about the delivery of the rails, as the Canadian Pacific railway have con tracted for their carriage, and it is feared they will side track them on their line. The local government has notified the contractors that they will send the rails over the Canadian Pacific railway at their own risk. London, Aug. 30.—The Standard, re ferring to the Manitoba railway trouble, says: '*y7-y---:' : _-7 The more clearly the rights of the question are understood, the more emphatic will ba the opinion here that the Manitobans are try ing to derive an unfair advantage from theii geographical position. The best prospect foi a settlement lies in the direction of a com* promise, of which a preliminary ought to ba the immediate suspension of operations ou the Manitoba railway line. No effort should be spared to conciliate the Manitobans, but they must be made to conform to their duties as British subjects and Canadian subjects. A Lucky Newspaper Alan. M. Roche, for several years the railroad editor of the Pioneer Press, will leave to-day for Boston, where he will represent the Minnesota & North western road. Mr. Roche is one of the most widely known and best-liked young men in St. Paul and his several years' study of the railroad questions of the Northwest have given him a knowl edge of the situation that will make him a valuable man for the company. The entire newspaper fraternity of the Saintly city will wish him good luck as he quits the field of active journalism for a more remunerative "sit." . :~ : Have Got the Cash.

Allentown, Pa., Aug. 30.—The following platforn of the young Demo cratic battalion of Philadelphia, will be presented by Mr. Vaux upon the as sembling of the Democratic state con vention to-morrow: There Is but one political party in the United States which is the traditional repre- ■ sentative of Democratic principles. There cannot be two sets of principles or a many-' - " sided, policy existing in this party. Those who resist the affirmance of the cardinal principles of the Democracyare not Democrats and are not worthy of their acknowlegement, or support. These traditional principles ; . are known. Jefferson asserted them, and. their confirmation by Madison, Jackson, Polk and Cleveland have canonized them as essential to the integrity of the Democratic party. Among these time-honored and inde structible doctrines are the inherent rights of the states, the limited and granted powers to the federal government within which con stitutional limitation the federal authorities can alone act. The power of congress to levy duties on foreign made" products, to raise revenue for the support of federal government, is plain and positive, as also to levy taxes, imports and excises, all of which are powers granted to congress by the states by the federal constitution and these powers include legislation for the payment of the public debt and pensions to those who have earned them. These powers granted to congress are amply sufficient for all the needs of the people. To enlarge them by judicial construction or legislative usurpa tion is open violation of the organic law on which our federal government relies lor its existence and which die Democratic party it pledged to maintain. A tax for the support of the government is absolutely neces. sary. This tax is called the tariff. All the money necessary for the support and maintenance of tne government, the army and navy, the civil list and the payment of the public debt and pensions, must be sup plied by a tariff tax as least obnoxious to the * public sentiment against direct taxation. A tax to protect the manufacturers only and force the laborers to "strike for their share of this protection is not within the purpose of the tariff tax and is an abuse of the duty to make laws for the greatest good . to ' the greatest number. The im mense surplus now in the federal treasury and daily increasing from taxation by federal law is positive evidence of the abuse of such legislation. To relieve by law the people from the burden of this tax, levied without justice or reason, it is the paramount duty of congress promptly to enforce the tax on whisky as the least objectionable of all taxes for internal revenue by imposts or excise law 6. We endorse the opinion of President Cleveland in his message to congress: "I recommend that the increasing and unnec essary surplus of national revenue annually accumulated be released to the people by an amendment to our revenue laws which shall cheapen the price of necessaries of living and give fr^er entrance to such . imported material as by American labor may be manu factured into marketable comodities. . Legislation which encourages American industry within the specific power granted to Congress to lew duties on foreign products is wise and patriotic, and such legislation most surely reaches this- result when it gives to industry increased material, as well as facilities for its employment, and enables it to overcome foreign competition and stimu late the skill, enterprise and ingenuity of the American mechanic." True American states manship discourages all legislation which in terferes with the liberty of individual action, unless it assails the rights or puts in peril the same privileges of others. Hence the attempt - to enforce by law questions of morals is without the sanction of equal justice to all men. 'Probably Fatally Shot.
