LIBERALS WILL WIN.
This Is What T. P. O'Connor Sees in the Outlook in Britain. Conservatives Merely Wait ing- for Gladstone to De clare His Intentions. The Dastardly Scheme of a Tutor to Blackmail Ox ford Students. A Crank's Break Causes Ab surd Rumors Regarding Emperor William. London. Feb. 14.— 1n today's Sunday Sun T. P. O'Connor predicts that par liament will be dissolved very soon, and says that it seems as if ail the govern ment is waitinc for is to have Mr. Glad stone declare his intentions in regard to borne rule and other Irish questions. The ministers exhibit considerable anxiety to hear from the Liberal leader on these points, ana Mr. Chamberlain evidently !;as instructions to attempt to draw out the informaiion from the op position chief as soon as be can. This state of mind on Ihe part of the govern .iiH-iit. Mr. O'Connor thinks, indicates a couvictioti ti;:it the Liberals will win at the general elections, if the Lib eral programme is one in which the Conservatives ikiiik they can pick flaws with tolerable ease, they will be tvHling to no to the country imme diately. They are in a mood to shift the thorny burden of making laws for Ireland upon the shoulders of the Lib erals, convinced as they are, that it will l>e impossible for Mr. Gladstone to carry out a scheme lhat will receive the sup port of the country. The Irish educa tion bill is also likely to prove a stum bline block for the government and to hasten their retirement. Mr. Balfour, in the judgment of Mr. O'Conner, Is incapable of sympathy with Orange bigotry, and no doubt the educational scheme, jointly devised by him and Chief Secretary Jackson, will be one of justice to all creeds. IJut wherever an English min ister proposes justice to Catholics, the Orangeman sees red dreams of lire and slaughter. Hence the scheme is cer tain to alienate Ulster, whose members are capable of makiug a great deal of trouble for the government. Comment ing upon the debate on motion for am nesty for ihe Irish political prisoners. Mr. O'Connor expresses joy that the Irish factions agreed and cast their Totes together. He seizes this occasion to wave the olive branch again, and to dilate upon the advantages of reunion. A VIL.E TUTOR. flow an Oxford Instructor At- tempted Blackmail. Lcmio.v, Feb. Truth has un earttied a very disagreeable scandal at Oxford. The paper lias for sometime back been publishing a series of expos ures of attempts 10 blackmail swell un denrraduates at the university. The method employed by the blackmailer was to lure the unsuspecting student into a correspondence with a mysterious lady, under various pretexts, the object in view .ln>in« to gradually cause the correspondence to takeonihe appear- i ance of indicating a liaison discredit- I able to the too confiding undergraduate. i At the proper time, a demand for cash] I accompanied with a threat of exposure descended upon Die unhappy cor respondent, in some cases the victim paid vi) ana secured silence. In other ! words, the matter was brought to the at- I tention of tiie university authorities, and finally the matter came to Mr. La- , bouchere's knowledge and was venti laled in Truth. The, identity of the blackmailer was a mystery to rhe public until yesterday, when it was announced that Mr. Morelnnd, a law tutor, not offi cially attached to tbe university, had been arrested as the guilty man." The technical charge against Moreland. to which he will be called upon to plead in the Bow street poiice court tomorrow. Is that of fraud. If lie is inclined to fiirlit ttie case.it is believed he can make a number of hitherto highly respected Oxfordians appear in a very unfavora ble light by producing their epistolary effusions.

Pakis, Feb. 14.— The rise in prices of beef caused by the new tariff has led to a Isiree demand for horseflesh In Paris. According to a report of the police, prefecture, horses and males slaughtered represent over '.'"one third of the whole quantity of meat consumed. Fillet or horse or donkey is retailed 10 pence pound, steak at 7 pence per pound and interior parts at pence per pound. Worn out animals are rising in value, and are being bought up everywhere within a radius of 300 miles of l'aris. Havre im porters of American pork have obtained the abrogation of the order oy whicn a consignment of pork could not be landed until the order presented a certificate from a United States in spector. Such pork can now be landed at the convenience of the importers through the Havre chamber of com merce, which now asks lor ihe rescind ing of the order by which meat found unlit for use is to be destroyed. The authorities will probably be advised to hold such meat until the American ex porters decide to have it returned. QUIET AT KIO. The Heports of War in Brazil Are Untrue. Pabis, Feb. 14.— C01.

New Yokk.

Death was i probably from natural causes. The old i man probably sat alongside of a liehted I oil stove just before death overtook | him, for when found, his race was resting airainst the stove, j the flesh of which had been J burned away to the bone. Gambidge ! was a classmate of ex-Senator Evarts. I but beyond this fact little is known of ; the man. His barn-like ' apartment, vyliich was illuminated only by a sky light, was filled from floor to ceiling with paintings and portraits, many of which are said to be rare gems. Be sides this dust-covered statues, plaques and medallions were scattered about the apartment. The only known friend of the reelr.se is Ilev. Dr. H. S. Gardner, of Milford, Pa., with whom he is corre sponded every month or so. GOVERNMENT TELEGRAPH. A Plea for It by a Prominent Cana- Bflß dian. Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 14.— Th: re has long been an effort made to induce the government to take over and operate the various lines of telegraph of the domin ion. F. N. Gisborne. superintendent of the government telegraphs, has pre pared an elaborate paper on the subject, which will be presented to the house of commons at its coming session, when it is probable that legislation will be intro duced to effect the transfer of (he lines of the various companies to the federal government. Mr. Gisborne advocates very strongly that for the purposes of trade it will be advisable that all the telegraph lines Should be put immedi ately under the control of the postoftice department, as they are in England. He says there are thousands of letters trans mitted from one part of the dominion. to another, which, if the government liad. control of the wires, would be exchanged by telegraph. The revenue from 500.000 messages at 25 cents for 100 words, less three cents for delivery, would be §110, --000. plus the press news income. ,g,i — Killed With an Ax.

A \TKI.Ii AND AL.LEKTON. ' The Talk About Racing the Pair of 1 horoughbreds. Tkrbb Havtk. Ind., Feb. 14.— Budd Doblo and Col. Conley, of Chicago, spent the day here with W. P. ljains, and the three owners of Axtell passed much of the time at the stallion's stable. Mr. ljams was asked about the inter view with C. W. Williams, in which he announced that three match races would be trotted this year between Axtell and Allerton. ''Mr. Williams must have been misun derstood," said Mr. ljunis, "and 1 can not believe that he ever made such a statement. No match between Axtell and Allerton has been, arranged. Ax tell's stud service will not end till about the first of July. He will then be taken up for regular work, and it he trains as we have every reason to believe he will, we are standing ready to race him against any horse. But you can see the folly of making match races now so far in advance of the time when we shall be able to deter mine what Axtell can do." JERSEY TRACKS IN DANGER.

It would srive confidence in silver as a safe medium of exchange, leaving no pre text whatever fur the apprehensions now indulged in. There could be No Hoarding ol'liold. The stocks ol coined silver that would ad Jto the world's oney would in the nature of things cheapen cold and ren der it less burdensome to meet gold contracts than now. To take $60,000,000 of gold circulation immediately and be fore the vacuum* could be supplied by free coin would necessarily lower prices to such an extent that gold would buy more of the commodities thau now. Consequently gold investments here would be more remunerative than now." M The report then takes up the* question of the relation of the silver question to India for the purpose of showing that silver demonetization operates as a bonus on Indian exports to our disad vantage. It says: "The fact that nearly the whole of our exports of agriculture goto Eu ropean cold-using countries to be sold in competition there with countries on the single silver basis is cited by eco nomic writers of this country and the world to show the disadvantage of tne American farmer in t>uch competition. It is claimed, aud history of the prices shows.lhat as silver falls as compared to gold, so in about t te same ratio the prices of our farm products fall. To say that silver is now a drug is tanta mount to raying . that the prices of cot ton, wheat and'other farm Exports* Are Depressed. "The reason is plain. Countries hav ing the silver standard avoid as far as possible foreign debts in money for the reason that silver is, compared with gold, depreciated. Free silver is coined only on gold account. We are thus tied to the single irold staudard. Con sequently when gold goes up as com pared to silver the lower- farmers' wheat, cotton and other exports will be in price. In other words, as silver falls below goid, so do also our arti cles of export trade, especially farm products, fall in price. These facts were clearly brought out in the inves tigation of the British royal commission. If. therefore, wheat is worth a dollar a bushel in London, a bushel of wheat sold there will get a gold dollar. This gold dollar will buy silver enough now, in the London market, to coin a dollar and twenty-five cents at our ratio and more at" the ratio of India. The farmer in silver-standard countries gets for his wheat a sufficiency of silver to coin it in his home mint into a dollar and a quar ter, or in other words he has in reality erot a dollar and a quarter for his wheat. Not so with the American farmer.' He gets his dollar in gold, but he cannot with that gold dollar buy silver For Coinage at Home, for the reason that free coinage is de nied him, silver coinage here being lim ited to government account. The Amer ican farmer, gets a dollar for a given amount of his wheat, meats and cotton products, whereas the farmer in silver using countries gets a dollar and a quar ter for the same amount of his product." On this point the majority quote from an article printed the past week in a Wall street paper calling attention to the fact that silver and cotton (ot the latter of whicli we exported in 1891 $276,-, G35.029 against 1281,422.890 of all bread stuffs) are selling at the lowest Drices in history. A telegram from New ' York dated Feb. 1, is also quoted. This telegram related that cotttmjiad tum- ' bled the day before, and. after noting that the decline was partly due to the ' large unused supply* said: "The low price is als^a factor in the decline, as England settled with : India in silver and the lower silver goes the cheaper England can buy in India." Continuing, the report says: "Bread stuffs are doing somewhat better now than cotton.owing to the failure of sucn crops nearly everywhere except in the United States. Yet, notwithstanding this unusual feature, our food products are now selling too low for any profit. They are also fallinir.and will suffer the same as cotton unde liker conditions." This brings the report up to a discus siou of Bullion Purchases. "Bullion purchases," it says, "will not restore the parity cf the two metals. Bimetallism does not tolerate the idea that one metal, gold for instance, shall be set up as the standard by which the other metal, silver, shall be purchased or measured. This is gold mono-metal iisui, and fixes gold as the measuring metal or the sole valuator. Bi-mjjtallism means that each metal shall be a stand ard with itself. Free coinage of silver means that all silver bullion of 412>£ grains standard and3BlJ^ grains pure silver shall be worth a dollar in lawful payments. The stamp of the govern ment is affixed to it solely for the pur pose of a guaranty of its weight and fineness. It is the bullion that in fact is legally mon etized. This being so. the bul lion 412K grains of standard silver, is always worth a dollar because the law so declares. Silver cannot fall below the value which the government gives it at the mint because the mint is an open market for all of it at a rixed price. The same may be said of gold, yet other countries may make such a demand tor gold as to make that metal more valuable than silver. They may in time make such a demand for'silver as to put it above gold, but at our/nints they remain the same in debt-paying power." The report : then quotes from a well known authority to the effect that as people want always to pay In tne riieaper ITlonej the demand under the double standard for the metal which falls off in price re sults in raising the value of that metal again and brings the two together. The report of last year, giving an exhaustive review of the way in which France held the two metals together, is cited with reference to the ability ot the United States io maintain each metal at par, and also as showinz that the minority (then the free silver" men) predicted that under the present Conger bill the di venrenee between the two metals would increase instead of diminish. Ihe majority then go on to show that free coinage would put more money into circulation, be sides doing what is of Drime importance, viz.. raising the status of silver the world over. In conclusion, the major ity submit the report made last sess"ioa by Mr. Bartiue, of Nevada, who, as the leader of the free coinage Republicans on the coipmiitee and in the house; made a comprehensive, exhaustive and judicial review of the silver question in all its details. In this document Mr. Bartine went into the ciy that free coinage would flood the United States with cheap silver, showing by a con sideration of the financial conditions in Europe ana in India that it was not to be apprehended. The quotations from Mr. Bartiite's report also ico with more elaboration into most of the points out lined in the first part of the report to be submitted tomorrow. I COLORADO UKESIT.

Hklena. Mont. Feb. 14.— Gov. Toole has received from Secretary Blame a letter enclosing thenoteof PungKwang Yee, the Chinese charge d'affairs, of Washington, protesting against the treatment of Chinese subjects by resi dents of Butte. It is charged that the labor unions boycotted the Chinese, and punished all members found patroniz ing them. Several Chinamen have been roughly handled. Landlords are for bidden to rent houses to Chinamen, and ordered to raise the rent of those now tenanted. It is required that Chinese register their names and pay $io for the privilege. Pung Kvvang Yee's letter concludes: "As Chinese subjects resi dent in the United States are entitled to protection of ' the laws guaranteed to ; them by the treaty of 1885, I beg re spectfully to solicit immediate relief on the part ot the outraged Chinese of Butte, and hope that necessary instruc tions shall be issued to the local author ties of Montana to take prompt meas ures for the suppression of such illegal acts and outrages committed on Chinese subjects there." .Butte, Mont., Feb. 14.— Gov.

There is no truth in the com plaint so far as the charge of violence is concerned, hast .November the labor I unions of Butte declared a boycott against all places run by Chinese or where Chinese were employed. As a consequence one-half of the Chinese estaurants and laundries have been orced to close. The boycott, however, has been conducted by peaceable meth ods. The only violence used at all was a few nights ago, when the Chinese flag was torn down from in front of the joss house, and the stars and stripes hoisted on the staff in its stead. This was done by the members of the Patriotic Order Sons of America, on the ground that no foreign flag can float in America unac companied byanAmerican flag. FELL ON HIS SIDE, And May Die of His Serious In •jsj juries. ggragjjj ~ Cincixxati, Feb. Meredith Stan ley, the bridge-jumper, made what in all probability will prove a fatal leap yesterday from the Cincinnati & Cov ington bridge, a distance of over 100 feet, into the Ohio river. Only a few : weeks ago Stanley and his wife made a successful double leap from the Chesapeake & Ohio bridge. ' Since then they have been on exhibi tion at a dime museum iv this city. Stanley ia now lying in : bed suffering intensely and unable to talk. His side is badly hurt, and it is feared he has received fatal injuries. A party of men a few weeks ago raised a purse of $25, which they offered to Stanley and his wife to leap from the bridge together. This morning she re fused on account of the sum being too small and the water too cold. She ac companied her husband down town and then went to see her mother when Stan ley went to the river, telling her he in tended making the jump. All knowledge of the proposed . jump was couhued to tnose who had subscribed to the purse. At the hour named he walked out to the center of the bridge and made the leap. As he jumped he saw a piece of wood floating in the water, aud turned his body in the descent to avoid striking it. In consequence he fell on his si'le, and when he sank into the water he did not reappear very soon. When he did come up it was seen ttiat he was hurt. A boat took him to the shore, where he was dressed and taken home. Those who subscribed to the purse were alarmed at the result, and made themselves scarce without handing over the money.

LEATHER IV TEN HOURS. B The English Working a Big Scheme in America. 'Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 14. — A morning paper says: One of the most gigantic schemes that has ever been projected in the leather trade is now being attempted by a combination ot English capitalists, whose agent or representative has been for some time in this city. I is the combination of the tanners of the United States into a trust or syndicate with headquarters in. the East and a local office in each state. The English syndicate has already been formed and $5,000,000 of its capital stock has been subscribed. The names of its members have not yet been made public, but are stated to be amone th*» most prominent leather merchants in that country. The inducement which the syndicate holds out to the tanners of this country is an entirely new process of tanning the leather by means of a liquid that practi cally eliminates time from the opera tion. Under the old method it takes lrom forty to fifty days to tau a calf skin, while with the new process it can be accomplished within ten hours. NO PLACE i.ijii; HOME.

"Go away, sir. Don't you know bet ter than to disturb me when I am writ ing? . Xow that idea is gone and I must begin all over again. There is no place " It was a woman's voice this time. "Reginald, the gas is leaking like ev erything, and you must see the company and have it stopped." "There is no place like home," began the wretched man, just as Hannah, the girl, thrust her head in to ask: "Did you order tiie kindlin's?" Then he seized his pen and wrote flu ently for fully five minutes before he gave up his wild dream of fame.

The state historical society was en riched yesterday by an image of pottery supposed to be an idol of some prehis toric race, probably the mound build ers, says the Topeka Capital. The idol was found near Aron, Inde pendence county, Ark., and was dug from a mound by relic Hunters along with a number of decayed human bones, copper arrowheads and broken domestic utensils. It is the property of G. W. Hume, of Stratsburg, Mo. Tne idol is seven inches in height by five inches in diameter. It is rudely constructed, having evidently been formed by hand, or at best very crude tools, from common clay and afterward hardened by being dried in the sun. The idjl represents a human figure in a kneeling posture, the arms extending at the side. The features are rudely formed, yet, notwithstanding this, are not altogether repulsive, tne nose being gracefully aquiline and the lips well formed. The ears are missiug, but tfie rem nauts show that they were adorned with rings. The body is "squatty" and might be said to resemble a toad. At the top of the head there is a hole, which seems to have a parpose.probably that of fastening a head dress to the figure. The image would hardly be cat alogued with the works of art, but it is, nevertheless, an interesting relic. The race whose deity was represented by this clumsy bit of clay inhabited the Mississippi valley from the great lakes to the Gulf at a time to which the tradi tions of man runneth not. Who they were.where they came from, what their manner of life was, is all a mystery. True, many mounds, excavations and burying grounds of this lost people have been discovered, but so far they have given but little of their history. That they lived and died before the race of American Indians existed is proved by the fact that the traditions of this latter race contain no reference to this lost people, although their mounds and relics are mentioned. Many mounds of this kinds are found in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennes see. Ohio and Indiana, and a few have been discovered in nearly all the states in the Mississippi valley. This Was in Boston. She was a dainty Boston lass, with soul above pork and beans and vocabu lary above the ordinary, and she carried them both into a Woodward avenue res taurant with her, says the Detroit Free Press. "Waiter," she added, after giving her order, "bring me also a few tuber culous fungi." "A few tuberculosis funei," she re peated, with a supercilious elevation of her eyebrows. "What's them, mum?" inquired the waiter, helplessly. This time she looked positively severe, yet withal pitying. "They are a species ot morbid extrav asation of vegetable suerars analogous to oak-balls or nut-gal ls,~doubtless orig inating as these latter from the sting of some of the insectivorous fatnilv," she explained, lucidly. The waiter was paralyzed. "What's the matter with you?" inter posed his partner at the next table, coming to the rescue. "The young lady wants truffles. You had ougfht to been raised in Boston, like I was." The customer was served properly. m Opening for a Live Man. Detroit Free Press. He arrived in a small Western town from the East, and after supper he in terviewed the proprietor of the hotel. "Is there an opening in this place for a liyo newspaper man?" he queried. "Thar waz las' week," replied the proprietor pleasantly. "Has it been filled?" "Well, no. not egsactly, I reckon, but its got a man in it." "Who is he?" "A newspaper chap from the East." •'A live man?" '•1 reckon not. Leastways not so live as he waz." "How do you mean?" "Well, you see it waz this way: A live man came out here, started a paper, jumped on the prominent citizens and raised tlinuder generally.

A Lady Correspondent Writes Us in Confidence — What We Have to Tell Her. Some Suggestions of Value to Any Ladr. (From the Ladies' Home.) To the Editor: I am a woman, and I presume no more subject to biues, cryiutc spells and de spondency than most women, but I must say 1 feel depressed very- often. Men cannot understand us at such times, or why we feel as we do— women can. Men call us weak— we are not. We are delicately made, and have tender and fine sensibilities. We may be gen tle, but we are not weak. There is no greater error than to think that we are. Being as we are, we have nerves, and very tine ones, too. What man would care for us if we did not have fine nerves? But is that weakness? What i feel in terested in, and what I write you about, is how I can make my nerves, which are delicate, a little stroneer. I don't want to change them; I only want to help them. They are quick to perceive all the fine and nice things in life; I want them so they will keep on doing this, but leave me stronger after it is over. 1 want to go to a reception or a garden party and not feel half-dead the next day. What can I do? If you will answer me through yonr columns 1 will thank you, and it may help other women who may be just as I am. Yours. Gkiitkude Gkanville. Dear Young Lady: Your question is hard to answer. If it were not, most women would be hap pier and healthier than they are now. Every atom of a' woman's body is filled with nerves, and it is just because they are so delicate and acute that women suffer so. Women have higher pleas ure than men and keener pain. They cannot change their natures. All they can do is to help them, and keep them healthy. We do not pretend to tell you how to do this. Many ways have been advised; few are good. We do know, however, that a careful and constant use of a pure nerve tonic is a great as sistance. We also know that the only discovery of the present day which is admitted to be superior and can answer this purpose, is failed Paine'a Celery Compound. There have been so many instances where women who have beeu weak and nervous, who have lost color and attractiveness, and who fret so that happiness was impossible, have been restored to beauty and health by its use that we unhesitatingly advise you to try it. It may not perform a miracle few tilings do— but it will certainly make you feel younger, fresher and happier if you carefully foilow its use. Of course, we presume that you live carefully, and that your habits of life are regular. With these conditions you need have no fear for your future health, happiness aud life.
