A LIVELY SESSION OF TIIE ENG
LISH CABINET COUNCIL.
English Indignation at Russia's Treat
ment of Prisoners Great Demon
stration Meetings to be Held To-Day
Distinguished Men to Speak.
By United Press.
London, March 8. At the Cabinet
council which was held to-day, Mr. W.
H. Smith urged his colleagues to accept
the amendment to his own motion, of
which notice of introduction was given
by Mr. Jennings in the House last
night.
After a brief discussion the Cabinet
rejected Mr. Smith' t proposition and re
solved to stand up on its own idea of
the construction which should be placed
upon the commissions report by the
Ministry. Meanwhile the government
organs are earnestly appealing to Lord
Randolph Churchill and Mr. Jennings
to withdraw the amendment, making
no concealment of their fears as to the
effect of Lord Randolph's speech in sup
port thereof. Even now, moderate Con
servatives express belief that the gov
ernment majority on the motion will
not exceed fifty, while many of the
liberal politicians, who have pretty
thoroughly canvassed the situation, are
convinced that it will not exceed forty.
Tho meeting to express indignation
and horror at the recently reported mal
treatment and slaughter of political
prisoners in Russia, which is to be held
on the Thames embankment to-morrow
promises to be an enormous affair. In
accordance with the. arrangements an im
menso procession will march to the em
bankment where stands have been erected
from which speeches will be delivered by
Mr. John Morley, Prof. James Stuart,
Mr. John Byrns, Mr. Labouchere, Prince

By United Trebs.
Boston, Mass., March 9. An organ
iz.id effort is baing made to induce an
exodus of Southern colored people to

The French in a Critical Position
Four Thousand Troops Needed for
Protection.
By United Press.
Paris, March 8. A special dispatch
states that the position of the
French in Dahomey is critical. M.
Bayal, the French ageut, considered
that an attempt to conquer Dahomey
would prove futile and that tho security
ofFrench rule on tha coast would be pref
erable. He demands tha 4,000 men
be sent to defend the French post, and
declares that 8 000 men will be necessary
if an expedition to the capital of Da
homey is to be undertaken. The Jour
nal Des Debates is opposed to the con
quest of Dahomey, declaring it would
create a feenng of jealousy between
France, England and Germany, and
would occasion great difficulties.

EX-SULTAN DEAD.
HE WAS ONCE DEPOSED ON AC
COUNT OF ALLEGED INSANITY.
Attempts at RelormTaken as Evidence
of Insanity by TurksSaid to Have
Confined Fourteen Years But Be
lieved to Have Died Long Since.
(By United Press )
London, March 8. The Berlin Tag
blatt prints a special dispatch fiom
Constantinople reporting the death of
Ex-Sultan Murad V. who succeeded his
uncle, Sultan, Abiul-Agiz on May 29,
1876, and was deposed in favor of his
brother, the present Sultan, on August
31st of the same year. Murad was edu
cated outside the Harem, and in addition
to his unu-ual attainments, he imbibed a
disposition to institute reforms entirely
at variance with the Moslem policy and
tradition.
His peculiar tendency soou attracted
the attention of the Shiek, Ul-Islam,
who causad it to be understood, true, or
not, that the Commander of the Faith
fuLwas insane.
The exhibition of Murad's attempts to
introduce reforms being most convinc
ing evidence to the mind of a Turk, of
the insanity of the would be reformer,
Murad was accordingly deposed, after a
reign of three months; and has since, it is
alleged, been confined in a palace;
though, as nobody ever afterwards laid
eyes on him, it is widely believed that
his death occurred almost immediately
after his dethronement.

THE SHOOTING AT IIILLSBORO.
Various Reports of the Revenue Raid
in Which a Negro was Killed and
O Hiccr Kirkpatrick Shot.
Reports from Greensboro are to the
effect that Officer Kirkpatrick, who was
shot at Hillsboro some days ago while
looking for illicit distilleries, is in a
very unfavorable condition. Ho is suf
fering greatly, and is closely kept in a
dark room, and requires the most vigi
lant medical attention.
Various reporU have been sent out
about the occurrence, and they differ so
much that positive facts in the case are
not yet known, and it is probable that
they will not be reached until there is a
judicial hearing.
One Report of the Shooting.
A gentleman who resides near Hills
boro and who is conversant with the
matter as it is understood in that com
munity, gave the Chronicle the follow
ing account of the affair yesterday:
Officer Kirkpatrick, leading a party of
officers and deputies, started from
Hillsboro to look for sumo illicit distil
leries which were said to be located a few
miles distant. The members of the party
were Special Deputy Collector Patter
son, and deputies Dixon, Cates, and
Dodson.
After going a few miles they met a
colored man of whom they made in
quiry concerning the stills, and ho
said he would guide them to the place.
They followed him for some distance
and came in sight of a cabin. While
approaching the cabin they saw the col
ored man's sister, who was milking the
cow. He remarked to her as he passed,
"I have got a big crowd with me." then
started toward the cabin. The officers
called to him to halt; but he walked
on, and without turning around said, I
will be back in a minute. As the neero
reached the cabin Kirkpatrick fired at
him with a pistol. The negro then
seized a gun and returned the lire, the
ehot striking the officer s face, mutila
ting it fearfully and tearing out one
eye. Officer Patterson then fired at the
negro with a ptstol. He staggerd a few
steps and then fell on his face dead.

Pastoral Receptions.
The new feature of holding congrega
tional receptions recently adopted by
some of the pastors of the city, has
proven to be the source of unlimited
pleasure iu the relation of pastor and
people. Tiie first one was held some
time since by Rev. Dr. J. W. Carter of
the Iirst Baptist church, and it
proved to be a strong factor in extend
ing aud iipciiiag the acquaintance and
t,'ood will of members of the church one
v.ith another, and with the pastor.
Oa Friday evening Pastor J. J. Hall
of the Baptist Tabernacle held a recep
tion from half past three to 9 o'clock in
the evening, lhough tho weather was
excessively forbidding, about three hun
dred of the members of the church
called during the evening and found
rich pleasure in the cordial greeting
aud reception by the pastor and family.
lor the time the house belonged to
everybody in common, and there was
prevalent a delightful social case. The
younger members eD joyed music in the
parlors from time to time, while other
rooms were monopolized by older mem
bers who are now ready to affirm that
the occasion was one of the most de
lightful they ever knew. Delicate re
freshments were served to all callers
during the reception.

Another Account.
Officer R. H. Brooks was in the city
yesterday, and the Chronicle had an
interview with him concerning the af-
iair. tie was not at the place of the fa
tal occurrence, but he was quickly
summoned and had the earliest advices
of the atTair. He said :
-The officers left Hilkboro about
four o'clock in the morning, and after
going a few miles found two placea
where stills had evidently been located.
They met a colored man named Henry
Mack and asked him to show
them the way to a place they
named. He said he could
lead them to that dace by a new and
noirer route than the one they were
taking. He led them into a by-road
and they soon approached a cabin.
They passed a colored woman to whom
Mack spoke. Then ho said ho wanted
to go into the cabin a moment. The
officers followed him closely up to the
house and the negro entered. When
he went in, he seized a gun, Jleveled it
and fired at Kirkpatrick at a distance
of only ten feet, and how the offioer es
caped instant death is a mystery. Two
hundred shot strnck him in the face
tearing it all to peiccs and destroying
one of his eyes. The negro then aimed
at another officer, but before he oould
fire, officer Patterson shot him and
killed him.
Officer Brooks stated that the negro
was a tough character and that he, with
his father, has for a long time been
under heavy suspicion as a desperate and
dangerous illicit distiller, lie stated
that warrants Lad been issued for the
arrest of the officers, and that Kirkpat
