MARS' GREAT CANALS. Professor Sdiiaparelli Contends His Tkory Is Correct! BE SAYS TBE/ FLASET IS KDABITED. Snowiieliis Also Plainly Discovered — Hat Is Soled ly toiMMin Ali Over the Globe. Special to The Mokniko Cali* Milan, Aus. — Professor ScWaparelli says tbat he has kuowu of the observations by till* Lick astronomers, with whoru be has been lu correspondence, and expresses groat admiraiion for the American enter prise which U:is brought tbwir splendid ob servatory into existence at so great a cost. The people in Milan Lave always expressed their confidence in any statement regarding the science of astronomy which Schiaparelii might make, and it is a gratification to tbem to know that the Lick astronomers have Bonfinued the existence of his famous duplicated lines on Mars. Prolessor Scbiapartjlli says: "I saw the parallel duplication with almost 40 lines in 1882 and their number increased with suc cessive observation without duplication, however, being always visible. The identi cal direction of the lines proved their con nection with the soil; the varying visibility of their duplication arose from different atmospheric conditions at the times ol the opposition. Tie deuial of the existence of duplication always seemed absolutely un reasonable, for the markings were clearly seen by four astronomers. "Soiiip persons have attributed to mo the idea of finding In the duplication of tue lines of Mars proof that tbe planet was inhabited, and this they thought was based upon the supposition that the lines were the work of reasoning I>*m;,««. I never said anything of the kind. Natural forces may liave hol lowed out the*p deep canal?, 60 to ICO kilo meters long. Why they are double, itisiui possible to say. and it would be idle in an nomer to set up an hypothesis for dis cussion.} "Nature everjwiere c«u e« phenomena whicti are at present little understood. I am convinced of the habiubility of the planet, but my c nviction upou that point is based upon man other things than sim ple terva lions. "The conditions which prevail in Mars seem to approximate more clo*«ly t;,-»e of the Eartb than is the case with «ny other heavenly body. It would indeed be strange if a globe like ours In many of its important features should exist without life eonie kind." \ii\NA, Ang. 4.— ln an interview had by a representative of the Associated Press at the observatory on Turkenschanze with Assistant Astronomer Hildebrand the latter ssid: "Carefal observations of the planet ilars hnve been niade from the night of Jiiiv 30 to that of August 2. inclusivo, by Uerr I'alisa, chief assistant astronomer, and myself. Owine to the proximity of the p'anet to the 6uuthern horizon, however, the result of my observations were unsatis factory. The progress of the planet was watched for an hour. At a point 52 dee. above the horizon snow-fields could be seen distinctly, extending 30deg. from the South Pole. Immediately unaerueath this white p*t< 1 iee lar^e dark groups were ob «erv d. "Perhaps," jemarked Uerr Hildebrand, "tic-v are continents liko those of our earth. The ha/.e which euveloped the iower part of Mars, however, reLdered accurate ob servation! impossible. The North Pole and the equator wore completely obscured." The rvatioas were taken at 1:30 o'clock In the ranrnlne with the largest tplcjicone in Central Europe.

Bep.lin, Aug. 4.— The advanced liberal organ, Freislnnige Zeitung, Herr Eugen Richter's mouthpiece, which lately de fended Count Von Caprivi, prints on the Bi-marck ques'ion: "Just before the Emperor's return an announcement, wbirh seemed so unreliable tnat we took no notice of it, went around the press to the effect that we miaht expect to see the Government adopt a resolute attitude with regard to Prince B sniHrck's attacks. A semi-official an nouncement is being circulated in various Dewspapers in which it is said that no rea sunable man could think it possible that legal measures •houid be taken against Bis marck." It m;-y be added that the Government will not venture to publish any more docu ments or allow itself to be dragged into fresh discussions.

STEVENSON'S SI'KECH. The Democratic Nomine* for Vlc#-I>re*l dent nt th« htterimi < lul>. Louisville. Ky., Aujr. This has been a great day and niglit for Kentucky Demo crats. Tho opeuing and dedication of the new Watter^on Clubhouse drew together all the leaders of the party In the State. Tho Governor and his staff came down from Frankfort and the Legislature was left without a quorum. But tho chief feature of the occasion was the presence of tho Hon. A'lla: Stevenson, the Democratic nominee for Vice-President, who came at the Invita tion of the Watterson Club and spoke botn to a great concoureo of people at Lieder kranz Hall and* to a smaller gathenn« nt tho Watterson Club house, where he was given a reception, aud where Watterson, in spite of his recent severe illness, of which he shows decided tracea, also spoke. Fiaga aud bunting shone every whore. The Watterson CIuD home wag gorgeous with decorations by day nnd ablaze with illuminations by ulj:ht. .The Hon. John Young brown. Governor of Kentucky, In troduced General Sleveusou to the im nionse audience. lie was greeted with tumultuous enthusiasm. .Mr. Stevenson, in toe course of his re marlt Raid : " W hen U.e momentous Issues that divided the peoplo end sections had passed from the domain of the debate and the ballot to the dread arbitrament oi arms, I believed with Stephen A. Douglas that the most direct road to peace lay through the most stupendous preparations for wnr. From tho beginning to the close of that great conflict 1 wa* for the maintenance, at whatever -st, of the Federal Union, with the restoration of Ptderal authority. "I believed with the Democratic party in the North that the perfect restoration of the Union w;»s to be wrought out In the spirit of patriotism and not hate. With some of the States the period of reconstruc tion was but another name . for misrule ; for the political ostracism. of the white race, for the robbery of the people already Impoverished by war, for outrage upon the rights of property and the people, so mons strous as now almost to challenge belief, in a word, all that was loathsome and ali that was offensive in that which was called government in many of the Southern States can be summed up in one word—recon struction. "It would sorve no wise purpose to re vive the memories of this era but for the reason that we are confronted by the start ling fact that the party in power stands pledged to the re-enactment of the force hill. History would but repeat itself. The evils that would follow the legislation now threatened would find their counterpart only In those which make up so shameful a part of the reconstruction erlod. In view of what I have mentioned, and the further fact that with such powerful auxiliaries as Northern enterprise aud Northern capital the South stands upon the threshold of a material development unknown to this gen eration, can it be possible that the AinTicau people will now consent that the hands be turned back uoon the. dial, and an ara of misrule, outrage and violence again be in aiigiirai'ii? "I believe that the dedication of the Watterson Club house is an event that m:»y be far-rearhine in its consequences. Within its walls great public questions will oe dis cussed. I cannot doubt in the pending struggle for political supremacy, nnd iu those which are to follow, that tb«#Vatter son Club will prove a faithful ally and counselor of the great historic party which cam« in with Jelferson, and which for near a century has been the bulwark of the rights of all the people more than all. "With the years will come new problems for solution; grave problems, the outgrowth af advancing civilization; problems which lertaiu to social government aud municipal administration: which pertain, it may be, to questions of diplomacy and of war; ave, which take hold or the very founda tions of tho social fabric. L-*t us trim tli.it in all the coming years from the hall dedi cated to-night there will bpring an influence and power ever for the right; ever for the defense of the uufortunai« aud of the op pressed; ev«r for that which is noble and pure at the hearthstone and in the council; ever for tiie maintenance, at whatever cost, of our democratic institutions and the perpetuity of the American republic" Speeches were also mad* by Hon. J. Proctor Knott, Hon. James A. Mackenzie, Hon. Hoyd Winchester. Hon. Albert S. Wil lis and others. After the adj >urniuent of the mass-tucotici: General Stevenson gave a public reception. The members of the Watterson Club and the gue»tJ then re paired to thn elabhoaaa. Wattaraoa made an adlresi", in which he paid that before the national convention the D.-rnocrats had ttieir choice of candidates, a> was tba rijzht of each to have.

A Liberal I.mdcr Kxplalns the Situation in Ireland. London*. Aug. 4.— A dinner was given to-night by the '80 Club to Hon. Edward Blake, formerly Premier of Ontario and the leader of the Liberal party in Cunada, who wa« returned to the House of Com mons from tiie south diviilon of Longford in the recent election.

Tho combined efforts of the Liberal sections weie certain to attain the coiumon objects that they had in vlow. The Irish party, he said, was created and maintained for a definite object under a strict system of discipline, allowing only limiird latitude. The Parliamentary vse.ip ons forged under Parnell's leadership had Buch weight, solidity, temterand keenness and had wrought such gre.U things for Ire land that the Liberal* c< uld take up the ln«h cause in an honorable and cordial manner and create a friendly leeling be tween Irish and Knglish democracy. Parnell's weapons may have been lessened in might, but they were yet fully adequate for the original purpose for which th»«y w<*^« intended. lie hoped the Irish minority would ultimately "se.e that the tMtlea of tiie majority were sound. Everyone had the interests of Ireland at heart arid de9ir>d the passage i tlected ot a borne rule bill. It might not be that every detail of the measure would b« exactly what some Irishmen would like, but, as Parnell once said, any sound measure would b« cheer fully accepted. The speaker said if the Irish nunnWrs desired to make a sim •-- of a substantial measure there would be neither Una nor inclination for captious criticism or factions agitation. COIN' SiS*.
