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.
London, Auk. 4 —in tue course of an in
terview by an Associated Press representa
tive vn 1 h the a.«tronom-r in charge of the
observatory at Greenwich the latter said
tho planet Mars was tuo unfavorably situ
ated for taking observation* in northern
l*titud<'3. It occupies the position that the
sun does In midwinter. a few meridiar.al
observations have been takf n, but they Lave
resulted in nothing worth reporting.
Paijis, Auz. 4.— The Sf-cretary of the ob
servatory in this city states that the ob-
rvattoa of tne opposition of M«rs will
extend over a long period. Tha report of
the results obtained will ba postponed for
some time.
Bebux, Aujr. 4.— No scientific observa
tions of the planet Mars have been made
here owing to the low-ly lag position of the
planet makiug Berlin an unfavorable point
of view.
Washington, Aoc 4.— Professor Asaph
Hall of the Naval Observatory to-night ob
served a large whit* ipot near the 9 uthern
po'e of Mars. The cloudy weat!:er inter
fered with the observance of the spo',
tbeugb it did not prevent the professor
fr m examining the other spots on the
planet and its satellite*. Mars will be near
est to the parth on the 6th insi., when it3
Qts'ance will b»* about 36, 000,000 miles.
Hanoveu. X. H. Aug. 4.— The inner
satellite of Mar«, Pneebns, was observed at
Dartmouth College Observatory last n'ght.
GERMAN POLITICS.
The Bismarck Question Is Exciting Much
Discussion in the Newspapers.
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. So long as Bismarck con
fines himself to the use of the light artillery of
and eriticiMß the Government will
remain passive. The campaign will only
be resumed if Bismarck has recourse to tho
• beavy artillery of misrepresention.

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. N..w that
tin* convention has made the ticket and
fixed the lin»-s they are on» and all for
Cleveland aud Stevenson, w.th no longings
or regrets. ,^__^__

Ireland.
Special to Tits Monsixa Cali.
London*, Aug. 4.— The new Parliament
assembled this afternoon. The proceedings
to-day were purely formal and no business
will be transacted until next week. The
Queen's Council, at which the speech from
the throue is signed, will be held to-mor

A large crowd gathered at Westminster
Palace yard early this morning, watching
the arrival of the members of the new Par
liameut aud cheering loudly when friends
Rppeared.
Gladstone, accompanied . by his wife,
drove to the Parliament buildings In an open
carriage, and ali along the route was given
an ovation by crowds.
At the palace yard the police were unable
to restrain the crowd, which became almost
wild in its endeavors to do honor to the
leader of the Liberal party, Balfour and
Goschen walked to the llou^e together and
were greeted with hoot* and groans by the
crowd outside.
When Gladstone nppeared In the Ilonse
he was civen a wildly enthusiastic recep
tion. The Irish members, rising iu a body,
were jou.ed by the Liberals, waving their
hat« and ehe«>rinz.
Hon. Arthur We.llesley Peel, the Speaker
of the last House, was elected Speaker.
The rising of Gladstone to second the

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. In addressing the mem
bers of the club Blake said that he believed
that Ireland was on the eve of realizing the
resuit« that Paruell had fought for. 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.

New Yokk, Aug. 4.— Archbishop Corr!
gan was seen this morning in relation to a
cable from Rome charging him with dis
respect to the Pope in connection with cer
tain utterances in regard to Archbishop
Ireland. The Archbishop said he was per
fectly willing to give out for publication the
letter sent by him and his fellow-bishops to
the Pope. And if this letter gives a good
ground for the charge of disrespect he was
will<n« to stand by it. He declined, how
ever, to give for publication the letters he
sent the Pope previous to June 13. claiming
that what he thtin wrote was "his own pri
vate business." "If Archbishop Ireland
will publish his 'memorial' 1 am willing to
publish the preceding letters," said Corrl
gan. "The Farihault sctieme," said he, "Is
nothing; ik-w in this country. It exists in
PoughkeeDsie, in my own diocese, in Sa
vannah, Ga., and in fact In ten different lo
calities In the United States." Archbishop
Corrgan trusts that his friends will wait
with patience until next November, when
the whole matter will be settled by the

iug the i roperty of mine-owners and persons
of non-union employes.
After the answer cf the respondents to

clearly shown that they were guilty of con
tempt. His motion was overruled, and he
excepted upon being asked if they were
guilty or not guilty.
The respondents, whose names follow, en

of July 11 and was positive that it was dis
charged by one of a party of union men,
who were hidden behind logs on the hill
side above the Frisco mill.
Stationed within the mouth of a tunnel
were ■ number of Frisco guardsmen, but he
was sure they did not fire first. The initial
shot was loliowed by a desultory fusillade
of six or Mfn shots, and then there was a
volley of 100 shots fired before the force in
th*» mill begun to reply.
Kt.eeb'>ne said that after an abortive at
tempt to destroy the mill by sending a
powder-laden car down the steep tramway
at the back of the plank he saw the men
carrying a powder-box toward the head of
the penstock, and snortly after this the ex
plosion occurred, and the Frisco mill col
lapsed. He declared ho would know the
man who carried the powder if he should
see him again.
After theexploslon Kneebnneand hi* com
rades determined to surrender and hung out
a il:\z ol truce. In a short time several
hundred armed men came down from the
hiils and had surrounded the mill. Must of
the mob were union miners. They com

Uiiiic:-' union hall at Gem.
At the time of the surrender be saw
