THB BOY CHIEFTAIN. Ths life and advoutures of Hugh Roe O'Dnnnell, or Red Hugti, properly depicted, wonld alone surpass the most thrilling tale of Scottish borderland v;u-rre. During the Fourteenth century the daring and heroio spirit of Hugh, wben still but a boy, attracted the notice of Sir John I'errou, lord justice of Ireland. In order to get him within his power, Perrott sent a ship into Lough Bwilly laden with samples of the Quest Spanish winos, and maimed by his own seamen dis guised as bpauish wine merchants. Hugh, wun otnera, was lurwi abroad, and, while being feasted, the batches were battened, and the young chief carried tj Dublin, where he was immnrid in the tower.

To Irishmen, or, mifed, to all men who an earnest students uf the history of anv raeo, people or hind, the dear old ruin on the coast below Uont-ral, near liuliyshannon, must possess an afwrbmg fascination. Here stood tbe lone, semi-monastic castle of til- barron. aa ancient fortaiice and seat of the American citizenship should uot be per mitted to enjoy some of the emoluments of the small offices that might be in the gift of the party in power.

If it were not for that cumbersome tad obsolete machinery known as the electo ral college, the Djmorats would now be re joicin in a great national victory. On the principle which we submitted to the people &t the last election there was a large major ity ot the people who decided in favor of the ulatferm of tbe Democratic party.

If it was the desire to destroy the commission honestly ind manfully, tbe way to do it was to bring in a bill to repeal tbe civil service law.

Mr. Lubnow experienced what may he termed "hay hauler's luck" on Friday morning last, when between Watertown and Moline, by tbe breaking down of one of bis wauon wheels a calamity which is well calculated to make a man feel like singing "I would not Life Always " However, he did not exhaust Websler'8 Unabridged in exp!t-ttvs, but took the matter very philosophically by selling the load for biz dollars and returning home the best way he cnu!d. Mr. Nathaniel Mumma. too, has had a little experience in tbe same Hue. On Tuesday morning last he left home with a load of hay, and the market being some what glutted with that commodity, had to stand on the market three days before he disposed of it, and of course it does not require a very astute mathematician to see at a glance tba' after paving three days expenses he would not be'comoelled to hire an extra train to haul home the balance of the proceeds. After disposs ing of bis free trade hy he invested a few dollars in protective Unff lumber and started for home.

Mr. Mumma, who got a severe shaking up and is somewhat severely hurt, was brought home by Al fred Wainwright. Is it not a great privilege to live in a country where equal rights is one of the chif corner bIodh? of the government? Tbe citizens of Zuma are very much astonished at tbe decision of the appel late court which gives a farm of 13 acres to John Kitson . By this decision not only Mrs. Ileeren loses a large amount of money, but tbe school fund of this town is a loser likewise to the extent of about $75 . John Sherman is reported as sayiug In the senate in regard to trusts that he looked upon them as one of the most dangerous ani subtle inventions of man, (Oh Blaine) and was id favor of breaking them up. They were contrary to the spitit of the common law of England, but tbe only way he thought to break them down was by competition . How in the name of common sense can competition 'break up" or "break down" a trust when a trust is formed for tbe special purpose of controlling competition . What next? Letters are constantly beiug received at prohibition headquarters stating that H can be proved by creditable and truthful witnesses that the prohibition vote has ln numbers of instances been returned as "scattering" and In scores of instances not been returned at all.

But down the coast, behind the sand hills, is rare old Bailvhanaon upon the stately Erne, where, as its waters leap with a roar into tbe bay, was once one of the most Splendid salmon fisheries in Ireland.

THI "COLLEEN BAW5." On beyond the old town along the cir cling bay is Bundoran, where families of the Irish gentry from the middle counties and the west come iu summer to the glorious Bundoran donkeys and tUe soa. While back along the beach from Ballyshannon, down behind the o.d Kil barron ruins, is the tiny hamlet of Wardtuwn, tbe old seat of the FfoUiott family, where the incidents of that tenderest and most pathetic of Irish love dramas, "Colleen Bawn' had their mourn ful origin. Here once really lived Squire Ffolliot, whose daughter Helen, a ias of radiant beauty, was enamored of a bright Irish lad servant, Willy Keiily. In vain the stern old squire sought to stem the torrent of their love. Finally tbe couple stole away together, tne girl taking with her her jewels. They were pursued and overtaken. Tbe jewels beiug found on the lad, he was prosecuted for felony and sentenced to transportation for seven years, but from the moment poor Reilly's sentence was known Helen, the colleen bawn, the lovely maiden, the pride of Donegal, became a raving maniac. For longyears Kfeilly suffered the pains and deg radation of penal servitude; for seven long years Squire Ffolliott's daughter called madly for ber lost lore .Nothing like the excitement occasional by the woe of these two lovers was ever known in this blessed land of marvels.

After tbe meeting had been called to order the report of tbe committee on organisation was received through the chairman, A H. Smith. The report consisted of four resolu tions, as follows: I'-esolved. As the sense of this committee, that we recommend to all merchant milts of this country a curtailment of their output for Janu ary to ooe-half of their average capacity. Kfsolved, That a committee of thiee, consist ing nf A- A. rreemao, . L Urettnleai and A.. H. Smith.be appoint l; tills committal to communi cate with the millers attending this convention, and with others int'-restt-ri tn regulating the out put of the onus of this country on or about the &th day of each month, beginning with Jan. tt). concerning the wis'ies and views of the miLIra regarvliag the output of the coming month; and that this comuiittt-e shall be empowered to order partial nhut-downs iu conformi y with tbe wishes of three-fourths of their correspondent. Resolved, Tlit the chnir appoint a committee of rive to ak the railroads to make the export rate per cent, less than tt.e internal rate. Resolved. Tnat no mill shall consign any flour lor three months attar Jan. 1, lo6J. Ferdinand Scbuchmacher moved that the first resolution be adopted by a rising vote. The chair said he understood that the res olution was not mandatory. A. H. Smith, one of tbe most advanced ad vocates of the trust, principle, said: "There is hardiy a doubt that the recommendation of this convention will be accepted by the millers all over the country. There is too much flour and too much wheat in the conn try. Whwt we are here for is to reduce the supply ot fljur. What we want is cheaper wheat arid dearer fljur. We are not here to lower prices. If we can maintain the price of wheat and se-l flour at a profit that is what we are here for. "Wo aim to bring the supply and demand nearer together. It one mouth don't do it let's take the dose for an other month." Mr. Ui ban said it had been stated that one half the mi lis in the country could grind enough to uppiy the demand. He did not propose to be one of tbe millers to shut down ail the time. Mr. Schuchmacber said the resolution was only to pave tbe way to a better understand ing. It was not intended to shut down so as not supply the regular trale. This brought protests from the friends of tbe combine who t ionht a shut down meant just that The chair suggested that if Mr. frjchucbmacber did uot have enough flonr for his regular trade he could buy from hi in. Mr. Seibt had added to the original reso lution a sentence that the January shut down was to take place as soon as the com mittee received reports from a majority of tbe millers of the country. With thin ad dition the resolution was adopted unanimously. -.he second resolution, appointing a rgu lating couiiniUee cwstiog of A. A. Free man, or LaCrosse; J. H. (Irecnleaf, of Min- newrK-lis, and A. H. Smith, of "St. Louis, bad an amendment flrti tn'kd on to the ett'-ct that the committee be empowered to termi nate the shut-down whenever in its judg ment tne conditions of trade demanded. Mr. Freeman modestly siK;cte-i that thi jvould be too bucIi ri-epomtMeW-f w - committee to shoulder, .Mr. Seibt insisted, but brought in the amendment a a separate resolution. At this point the Minneapolis man began to show suspicions of getting the worst end of tbe bargain. Their fears were partially allayed when it whs pointer! out that tbey had two members of tim committee, Messrs. lireenieaf and Freeman. They were not en tirely satisfied, and demanded that capacity count in deidsion for a shut-down. Mr. Freeman suggested that there was a public opinion among millers that wonld govern. A milk-r sotto voe0 It will take some thing mo than public opinion to prevent Chartey Pilsbury from running if be wants Bodies of White Men Scouring the Neighborhood LOOKING FOR THE NEGRO O0TLAW8. to. After more argument it was decided that capacity ought to count fcr numbers, and an amendment that three -fourths of the millers of the country, representing three-fourths of the capacity, must vote for a shut-down be fore the committee order it was passed. That resolution and that of Mr. Seibt were then uuf nimously adopted. The transportation resolution went thsough witnout debate. The chair ap pointed as a committee on transportation Messrs. D. B Merrill, C Espenscbild, F. H. Fonlds, C. H. Seibt and Fahrer. Tbe only resolution that caused a division was that providing that no consignment should be made after Jan. 1, ltsst), but tbis whh dually passed. Alter the usual passing of resolutions of thanks a roll-cull of the milling capacity present was made. The result showed the mills represented to have a daily capacity of Sb,i& barrels. The convention then adjourned. A Brave Fire Llnutentnt.

INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT. Cfrcantzatlmi ot the I'rlntlnc Trndee la tMtwithn t the Pending BlIL Kew York, 1ft An organization ciilt-J the i'riiiLiiig Trade Onnosition to tbe International Copyright Bill has leen formed hero and is extending tbroughuut tbe coun try. It baa reached a membership of about B, 000 in this city, aud has forwarded to Washington lengthy petitions against tbe passage of tbe biiL It claims that tbe early endorsement of the bill by several local brnn ties of the Typographical union was secured without a full discussion or under standing of itf merits, and that the measure is really antagonistic in a pronounced degree to the inter eats of the arti sans of tbe prit ting trade, and also of small publishers, tbe newsdealers and paper trade. It uNaerta that the present system of free competition in tbe publishing business gives the people tbe cheapest literature in the world, while it furnishes employment to a much larger number of printers, pressmen, electrotype, stereotyners, binders, artiste, engravers and newsdealers, and consume much larger quantities of paper, than if the prices of foreign reprints were raised to the higher Euglub level, as K proposed by the copyright bill. The organization recom mends that compensation be guaranteed to foreign authors, and that Americans be re lieved from the stigma of pirating foreign literature by a grant to foreign writers by congress of tbe right to collect a reasonable royalty on tbeir books reprinted here, leav ing American publishers aa free to repro duce foreign books as at present, and with out creating monopolies of foreign litera ture in this country. It claims that the pending bill is practically a gi ant of monop oly to a few rich and powerful publishing houses in London aad on our Atlantic sea board to control the publishing business of the English-speaking world, and in it re sults to raine tbe price of books and mak tbe dissemination of intelligence more costly and hence less universal Brought t Life by a Barber.
