THE Tl Lives of Women Plated in Jeopardy Two Saloon Keep ers Arrested. (Atlanta Journal.) Houston, Texas, July 30. Some two months ago Rev. Sam Jones held a revival here andetirred up the town. As a result of his work the gam bling houses were closed up and the Sunday closing law was enforced, and a number of citizens formed a league to see that the LAWS WERE ENFORCBD. Since then there have been two factions in the city, one favoring law and its carrying out, and another element condemning the law6 and denouncing Sam Jones AS A MOUNTEBANK. Last night he was secured to lecture here at Ilutchins Park lavUion and he had a large au dienee, composed principally of adies, who occupied the pavilion. It had been given out during the day that a crowd of toughs had been promised ten kegs of beer to HOT TEN-EGG MR. JONES, but this was discredited. However, just as he was in the middle oi ins discourse tnelignt went out and a shower of egS from the CO outside was thrown in on the pavilion, most of which STRUCK THE LADIES. . Just then the cry of lire was raised, and the audience began to stampede, and some one on the outside began to break up sticks so that the noise would cause them to think the pavilion was crashing. At this juncture cooler men rose to their feet and got the assemblage quiet. After a lapse of five min utes the hall got lit up again and Mr. Jones CONTINUED HIS LECTUBB for a brief period. But seeing the ladies were greatly excited he soon brought it to a close. There is the greatest indignation orer the outrage and a reward will be offered for the arrest of the guilty parties. Those who themselves are not Sam Jones' disciples are indignant because of the LIVES OF THE BEST LADIES in the city being jeoparded and also insulted by being egged. Two arrests have been made and more will follow. The parties arrested are Gus oauter and John Roesalar, both saloon keepers. Protecting Behriac Sea Fisheries. Very little has been heard from Senator Vance since the cablegram that he threw up everything except his seat in Congress on the sea voy age. North Carolinians will be in terested in anything that interests the junior Senator whether at home or abroad. Rev. R. A. Young, D. D., of Tennessee, is traveling in Eu rope and met Senator Vance. We quote from his letter in the Nash ville Christian Advocate : We are comfortably quartered in London at an inn where we have stopped twice before. At the table adjoining ours we have the compa ny of a friend of my boyh6d Zeb Vance, of North Carolina. He and I parted at Washington College forty-five years ago. With no in troduction or hesitation we shook hands instantly. We are both get ting old, fleshy, and gray. How did we know each other at this distance of time and place?

We did not talk about ourgelves, but of the boys we knew long ago of their history, successes, defeats, death. Then we spoke of the chances in religious history and worship. At the close of this con versation, he looked me earnestly in the face and said : "Young, you have read the history of the Church and have now seen modern Christi anity in all its phases. Is not our A good old country meeting-house wor shin the purest and best?" To which I replied, with emphasis, "It is." And then I delivered my mind on every species of Ritualism.

(By Cable to State Chronicle.) London, July 31 John Dil lon's accession to the McCarthyite ranks is still the leading topic in London, as well as Dublin. Dillon will, it is stated, take ac tive leadership at once, even though his formal announcement as leader may be deferred for some time. He will be a formidable antagonist for Parnell, as he is strong with the "Hillside men" and other extrem ists who form the bulk of Parnell's followers. "It will be dimcult," said a prominent McCarthyite to-day, "for the honest folks who have stood by Parnell to resist the ap peal of a man who has j ust come trom serving a term in prison for the Irish cause, and wh' has al ways been fearless and c i awoken toward the common enemy. For this reason Dillon will be doutless put oil the platform a.s soon possible. As for Parnell, his friends say that he is as far from yielding as ever, and that he will deliver one of his most earnest speeches at Thurles on Sunday. On the other hand Mrs. Parnell is said to be anxious for peace and rest, the present situation mate- j rially interfering with her social duties and ambitions. Mrs. Parnell makes no secret that she aspires to presentation at court. In this she will be greatly assisted by the Queen's recollection of the aid that Mr. Parnell s father extended to Queen Victoria's mother at a very critical period. Mr. O'Brien does not intend to go into the political struggle for the World's Fair Committee Does Not Meet With a Warm Reception. (By Cable.) London, July 31 A Paris dis patch says the reception of the Chicago Fair Committee was little more than polite. The feeling there is very lukewarm toward the American Fair, owing partly to the absorbing interest of the European political situation, and partly also to the fact' that the American dis play at the late Paris Exposition was considered inadequate, as compared with countries vastly lees (important in wealth, population and industry. Again, there is evi dence that the historic attachment to America is gradually dying out with the advance of time, and that sentiment is supplanted by hard ma terial interests.

(By United Press.) (By the United Press.) Washington, July 31 The treasury surplus to-day aggregated $57,018,504, ofTvhich amount $20,- 578,113 is in depository banks $19,311,755 is subsidiary coin and $360,277 is in minor coin and frac tional currency. The reduction in the public debt during July, treasury officials esti I mate, will be about four and a half millions; customs receipts during the pnst month will aggregate about fifteen and a half millions. In ternal revenue receipts about four teen and a half; miscellaneous re ceipts about four millions. This with five millions and a half of repayments will swell the re ceipts of the month to forty millions against which there will be thirty five millions and a half expenditures, including $13,600,000 for pensions. These figures point to an increase in the treasury cash of about four and a half million since July 1st, or the equivalent of a reduction in the debt to tnat amount. A WILD TXXAS D1SKF.T.
