( New York Work Cablegram Special Telegram. ) Informatlor retched me tonight , the accuracy of whlel I have since confirmed by personal inqulrj at Scotland Yard , of the arrest of thrci Irish-Americans ut Boulogne , Rottcrdan nnd Antuerp , and one at Glasgow , on BUS plclon of complicity In a fresh dynamite conspiracy directed against life and prop trty In England. Immense Importance Is nttached to thcsi arrests by the British detective department nn the man apprehended In Boulogne Is none other than Tynnn , the notorious "No 1" of the famous Dublin Invincible con Kplracy of 1881 , which resulted In the Phoe nix park murders. Officials here nro ex trcmely reticent concerning the arrests , bu I gleaned the Information that Tynan hni unly landed quite recently from New Yorl at Boulogne , when he was pounced upot by the French police. Tha man arrested at Glasgow * Is Pntrlcl Kearney , who was wanted In connectlor with the Glasgow dynamite explosions o ; 1883 , for which Dr. Gallagher and nine other men were convicted. Kearney hai since been In the United States. He , too barely landed , according to my Informant when the detectives seized him. The Identity ot the two men arrested al 'Antwerp and Rotterdam , where they alsc had arrived within the last tow days fron New York , has not yet been satisfactorily established , the names given by them belnt aliases , but the Mrltlsh police believe their to bo prominent members of the extreme Irish section In the United , States. HAD BEEN WAITING FOR THEM. It Is evident from the manner In whlcl these arrests have been effected that the British government had advance Informa- tlon of the alleged plot , as all arrangement ! had been madq with the foreign govern' iiicnts for their apprehension before the men landed. That arrests could bo ob tained abroad by Great Brltnln of men con cerned In a quasi-political offense Is a nov elty , but I learn since the British supreme court of appeals granted the extradition ol Francois , a Parisian anarchist and dyna miter , a few months since , European gov ernments have agreed that men Implicated In the employment ot explosives cannot be regarded as political offenders. The allegation against Tynan and the others Is that they came over with Intent tc UEB dynamite In this country , but althougl the continental governments have consented to place them under arrest. It Is doubted whether they will grant their extradition , at criminal Intent Is all that can be proved cgalnst them. * * Scotland Yard has had the Information foi some months of the recrudescence of dyna mite conspiracies among Irish-Americans , but the release of Daly and Ihe other pris oners was expected to extinguish these criminal enterprises. Should oven a prime facie case bo made out against these men II will effectually prevent the release of any more of the dynamiters now Imprisoned. . The ripening of this new plot nt this moment Is believed to bo duo to a desire to avenge the tortures Inflicted on Gallagher ami others. The arrests will create a tremendous deus sensation when knowu , but none of the Sunday papers have a line on the sub- Jeqt.

Tynan , the notori ous "No. 1 , " has been arrested on a Scot land Yard warrant , which was issued In 1S82 , Tynan arrived In Europe by landing In Gcno.n In August. Ho proceeded from there to J'arls , where ho remained for some days consorting with a number of the members of the djiiamlte faction of the Irish party , Ho had been traveling under the name ol Gcorgo Gordon and other aliases , when he arrived in Boulogne on Friday evening and put up nt the Hotel Folkestone , where he did not hcsltato to expound his Fenian views. Ills movements had been watched from the tlmo he had arrived In French ter ritory. The local commissary police , to gether with an English detective , burst Into his room at 4 o'clock In the morning. The dotectlvo held a loaded revolver to his head and threcteiied to shoot him If he resisted. Tynan was secured and admitted his Iden tity. IncrlnihintlnK papers and a large sum of money were found In hla possession. The prisoner was lodged In a cell In the Bou- Ji'gno police Jail nnd he will bo arraigned In thrt morning with a view to his extradition to England. The warrant on which the ar rest Is made charges that the prisoner was ( loneeniucl In the murders of Lord Frederick Cavendish , chief secretary , and Mr. Burke , under secretary. In Phoenix park , adjoining the vlce-regul lodge In Dublin , on May 0 , 1S82 , and wllh the manufacture * C dyna- mlto bombs for use In England. Detective Inspector Walsh has arrived hero from Scotland Yard to conduct the case. Ho said there wruld be some connection between Tynan's arrest and the arrest of n man named Bell yesterday nt Glasgow and of J. Wallace at Rotterdam. LONDON. Sept. 14. The first name of the man Bojl arrested at Glasgow on Saturday In connection with Tynan's arrest at Boulogne Is Edward , He ts described as an Anicrlcan. Ho was arrested quietly at the Victoria hotel In Glasgow , where ho had been staying for four days , The Standard has an editorial , based on a dispatch from Its correspondent at Boulogne , In which It expresses the belief that Tynan when arrested wna preparing for fuither dynamite operations In England. Boll Is charged with being concerned In n dynamllo outrage. Bell's ago Is about 80 , Ho arrived from the United States early lu the week. A dlspateh to the Time's from Boulogne Bays : Tynan was In company with Bell In Paris , and It was expected that both would cross to England , but Tynnn appears to liavo hesitated to venture so hazardous a trip. Hell went to England a few days ngo. Tynan had not suspected that his Identity was known , nnd he was astounded nt the entry of the detective nnd officers. Tynan has eliined his beard. He teems to bo de pressed over his capture , Detective Walsh of Scotland Yurtl arrived hero after arrest ing Bell In Glasgow. \VAIIXS TIlfJM AfJAIXST A WAIt.

The Interest and even Importance of th expected event to the Now York public , am especially to New York charities , lies ll the confident contention of Lord and Lad1 William's friends that the birth of a chili to his wife means' Inheritance by tha child of the Hammcrslcy millions. It I contended hero that , although the Hammers ley will provides the six or moro Ham mersley millions must be disposed of b' ' will of Lady William to charities of he own selection In default of n surviving rnal heir to Hooker Hammcrslcy , a child of he own has precedence of Hooker Hammerslcy' son or sons , even If they survive Lady Wll Ham , If her child survives. MILLIONS AND A TITLE. It Is my Impression that this Is Incorrect but the belief Is general among Lord AVI1 llnm's friends that It Is true , and prcsuuiabl therefore It is the -belief of Lord and Lad Wllllnm themselves. The fact Is Intcrestln as being the earnest hope nnd convlctlo : here , whatever your Investigations dlscove to bo the truth. It Is generally believed her that It Is only fact that Lord William woul lose the major r-art of his Income by th death of his wife , which has prevented hi elevation to the peernge , his title now beln ; purely ono of courtesy. If , however , th nbovo mentioned contention proves true , th government will undoubtedly risk it becaus of the long minority of his son , If Bon I proves to be , or even the minority of hi daughter , and Issue to the father a paten nobility nt n forthcoming anniversary of queen's longest reign. I am also Informed that n racing part ncrrhlp has undoubtedly been arranged be tweeu our greatest New York sportsman Pierre Lorlllard , now racing exclusively eve here , and Lord Wllllnm. The latter , al though without sufficient means prior t his marrlago to keep a racing stable ot hi own , has always been prominent In tur affairs , first in India and afterward on hi return home. It will bo curious If an heir or hclres of the Hammersley fortune should bo bon at historic Dcepdene. which Is the propert ; of tho. bankrupt Lord Francis Hope , wh married the American burlesque actress May Yohe , and who will likely be the nex duke of Newcastle. Lndy Beatrice Butler , the most beautlfu girl of the senson , will mnrry Lord Water ford.

" "It Is not true , " replied the viceroy. "Upor my return to China I may be called ui-or to fill even more exalted offices. I expccl to pursue my work for China's advance ment until my death. " VANCOUVER , B. C. . Sept. 13. At 1 : o'clock this moinlng Ll Hung Chang arrlvei at Vancouver. Crowds lined the approach te the depot and wharf , nnd masses of people crowded all the eminences around the bar bor. The Chinese residents had erected i very handsome and artistic arch on the bridge leading to the wharf , and a long line of Chinamen In rich robes of blue , green plum color , olive and orange , stood In line before the wharf waiting to receive the greai viceroy. The bridge was carpeted for some yards on cither side of the arch , and on this carpet stood a carved ebony table , on whlcl Incense of sandalwood was kept constant ) ; burning In a richly carved bronzeburner. . The Chinese band , that sounded like bag pipes , played Chinese music as Earl Ll alighted from the train , A carriage drawn by four white horses nnd draped with the union Jack waited to convey him the short distance from the train to the steamer. When the procession started the coach was preceded by his celebrated scarlet chair : arrled empty by four men and several bands. A division of marines from the war ships In the harbor fell Into line behind the viceroy , followed by n long deputation if Chinamen In their picturesque robes. rho viceroy seemed delighted with the dem onstration In his honor nnd especially with the homage of his countrymen , who fell on ono knco nnd raised clasped hands to lilm as ho passed. The gang plank of the Empress of China was carpeted , as for roy- ilty , with scarlet , the rojirs were bound with yellow und draped with flags. As he was carried up the plank In his scarlet chair the Chinese dragon flag was run to the .mainmast and a salute of nine guns was fired from her majesty's ship Comus. rho absence of cheering was noticeable and ? ave an oriental solemnity to the proceed ings. All the ships In the harbor were ; ally decorated wllh rainbows and bunting ind many of the roofs around displayed codik fiends. Many prominent citizens had : aivls of admission to the Empress and srowded decks to catch a gllrapso of the : arl as he was carried aboard. For this ono day the usual social order was subverted and Chinamen everywhere took precedence of their white brethren In the good-natured throngs that lined the wharf. It was emphatically Chinamen's day. Almost Immediately on reaching the steamer Ll Hung Chang granted audience In the saloon to a deputation of gorgeously gowned Chinamen , from whom he received an ad ilress read from a scarlet paper. During the audience his servant several times put Ills plpo to the lips and all but smoked for Iho great potentate.

( Via Sofia Bulgaria. Sept. 13. ) To those who hnv < eyes to see there Is more anil more evident' ' of the approach of a crisis In the affair of the decrepit Ottoman empire. Uut th Turk himself offers no signs of an apprccl atlon of the fate that Is Impending eve him In the limit that has apparently.bcoi reached in the patience of the Europeai powers with the process of extprmlnatloi of the Armenians that has steadily am relentlessly been pursued by the Tuiks There la no diminution In the rancor dls played by the Mussulmans toward the Ar menlans and no sign of the rellnqulshmcn of the Turk's contention that the Armen lans arc persistent and determined revo Unionists and agitators against the sov crclgnty of the sultan and , as such , Invlti the stringent repressive measures that hnvi been used against them. Some color has to bo admitted to till ; contention of the Turks from the fact tha some of the envoys of the poworn have ro cclvod a circular note from the Hlntaehal revolutionary committee declaring that I the reforms demanded by the Armenians a the time of the raid by them upon the Ottoman there will b < toman bank are not granted a more ocrlous outbreak against the Turklsl authorities and over a much wider area thai was the last , which resulted lu the appar cntly Indiscriminate .slaughter of Armenian In this city. Since Friday there has been a large In crcaeo of the patrols of cavalry In Thcrapla the suburb of Constantinople. In which an situated the French and English ambas sadors * residences , and In Buyukedcrp am Pcra. This Is the sultan's precautlonar ; measure against future outrages , In com pltanco with the wanting contained In tin note from the powers. These troops , It I : understood , come under the authority o those wl'o are warned that they will bi responsible If outbreaks Involving the de Btructlon of property and loss of llfo occur Hut the troops are at the same time In structed that they are authorized to UBI their arms in self-defense If attacked. Thesi so-called precautionary measures have no Improved the situation and have rathci served to Increase the feeling of terrorise on account of the feeling of doubt as te what secondary and veiled meaning maj be hidden behind the letter of Instruction ! to the troops. Meanwhile the British re lief commission Is busy with the work o : helping the distressed Armenians. The Turkish estimate of the number ol victims of massacres In this city Is 1,100 Other estimates run pretty much all th ( way upward from this figure. The ofllcla estimate Is coupled with the allegation thai many of those killed were In reality Turks but that they were 'burled with the Ar mohlans and that so their numbers wenl to swell the supposed number of Armenia ! victims. This is undoubtedly designed as ar apology and explanation of the assertlor contained In the note of the powers thai the savage bands which murderously at tacked the Armenians and pillaged thcli houses were not accidental gatherings ol fanatical people or undirected mobs , bul that there was every Indication ot theli especial organization and of Its being known If not directed by the authorities. In for eign circles here the statements thac Turks were killed along with the Armenians is denied. The actual number of the victims of the disorders was certainly fi.OOO and will probably reach 0,000. The military authori ties state that three soldiers were killed and thirty were wounded. The Porto reports state that 170 Mussulmans were wounded. All Mussulmans who have yet been tried by the extraordinary tribune appointed tc pass Judgment on those Implicated In the recent massacre have been acquitted of the charges of complicity. The evidence against many of those was deemed by foreign resi dents here conclusive and the failure tc hold them adds to the conviction that the Porto has no Intention ot complying with the demand of the powers that the culprits shall be brought to punishment. In view of this failure to punish the authors of out rages upon Armenians , the state of terrorIsm - Ism among the Armenians continues un abated and the exodus of these people goes on with no diminution. The appearance of the refugees , many of them iii a state of destitution from the hasty nature of their flight and all laboring under extreme ap prehension of a blow likely to fall at any time , evokes the universal compassion of the foreigners who see them.

The republican canvass has , o course , been conducted under the more fa vorable circumstances. Maine has novel heard so many distinguished republican or atora as during the past tow weeks. On the other hand , the democratic hos has had many dissenters within Us line : and the number of prominent deserters ha ; been large. Six weeks ago nil was confu slon and disorganization In the democratic camp. The fighting fund was small , am victory was practically Impossible. But th < supporters of frco silver rallied the faltcrlni army and took up the contest , detcrmlnci to make the best fight possible , and untl the last gun was fired they resisted stub bornly. .Tho democratic managers inaliv tain that the doctrine of free silver wa : practically unknown lu Maine two month ! ago , and they argue that the democratic vote which will be cast tomorrow mcam that their policy has made great gains Ir the last few weeks. They declare that II the republican majority falls below 20,00 ( it will be a democratic victory. The governor is the only state officei elected by the people In Maine , all others being chosen by the legislature. The caiv dldatcs on the official ballot tomorrow will be Hon. Llewellyn Powers of Holton. re publican ; Hon. Melville P. Frank of Port- iand , democrat ; A mint S. Ladd of Ratals , prohibitionist , and Luther C. Batwln ol Auburn , popullat. The name of William Henry Clifford , the nominee of the gold democrats , Is not on the ticket , and those who wish to vote for him must wrlto hif name on thn ballot. Candidate Batwln ImE waged a hot flglit for the populists , but aa many of that party favor free silver anil desire to bo counted 'on that s'l'de ' tomorrow , hts vote Is likely to be ICES than It was ti5vo.years ago. The dissensions among the prohibitionists over the currency question have not affected the party In this state and their strength will probably be about the same , as in the last election. It Is not expected that Clifford , the gold democrat , will receive more than 2,000 votes. In all ot the congressional districts In creased majorities are looked for. Speaker Thomas B. Reed of the First district will probably be honored with the largest ma jority he has eve'r received , as it Is ex pected that many democratic ballots will bo cast for him. His democratic opponent , Edward W. Staples of Blddeford , has not conducted a very thorough canvass. In the Second district the majority for Hon. Nelson Dlngley will probably bo In creased several thousand. Hon. Seth L Mllllken of Belfast in the Third district , lepubllcan , is expected to obtain a majoilty of over 10.000. Two yeais ago It was 7,700. In the last election Charles H. Boutelle , republican , had a majority of a little over 8,000 In the Fourth district. Thcro Is a rep resentative contest In Bangor which may have Rome effect on his vote tomorrow , but It is thought that many democrat : ! will de clare for hint and Increase his lead. U Is unlikely that more than ten demo crats will be elected to the house of rep resentatives and only half that number arc regarded as sure of success. In Bangor and Blddeford the contests over representatives are hot and the result Is very doubtful. It Is not expected that a tingle democrat will secure a seat In the senate.

( Special. ) From nil over this section of the range country the reports show that a far larger amount it hay than usual has been put up and whatever the winter may be there Is but little danger of shortage of feed for stock. Hay making here would bo a novelty to those who live In a section of the country ivhcro the only hay to be secured Is from the cultivated field grasses. Here a man attaches a rake to his mov.-er and rakes the hay as ho mows It , dropping it In win- lows , which are gathered up with a loader when the Imy Is taken from the field ; or gathered up with a "bucker" when the stacking is done whore the hay Is cut. There Is less labor and e'xpenso than In securing tame hay , whichever method is used.

BRYAN ON SUPREME COURT Chicago Platform Really Demands an Elootivo Federal Judiciary , CONSTITUTION MUST FIRST BE AMENDED roixirriiltc Ciini1liln < c tor I'rcxlilrnt OiiiiiinlKiMl AKIIIIK | ( the Contliiii. mict > uf a Life Tenure Amnilittlva Siuiri-nio Court In the U. S. Next IP the platiU of the Chicago ph - form which declares fci the frc and un limited colnigo of silver nt 10 to 1 , the declarations which rnlso thp greatest con troversy , and about which there teems to bo less understanding of their meanings than any other In that document , arc the clausta which rcl.ito to the federal Judiciary. Theoo clauses are two In nimbcr. The one In connection with the Income tax Is In the following language : "Wo OecUro that U U the duty of con gress to use all the constitutional powers which remain after that decision or which nuy como from its rovirsal by the court as It may hereafter bo constituted ! so that the burden of taxation may bo equally and Impartially laid , to the end that wealth may bear Its duo proportion of the expenses of the government. " The other , relating to the civil service- , roads : "We are opposed to life tenure In the public servile , except ns provided In the constitution. " Referring to these ambiguous demands Senator Hill In his speech before the Chicago cage convention whllo the platform was under discussion , said : "Why was IUlsc to assail the suptcmu court of your country ? Will como ono say what that clause means In this platform ? If Jim mean what you say , and pay what you mean , will some one explain that pro vision ? That provision. It it means any thing , mean * that it Is the duty ot congress to reconstruct the supreme court ot the country. It means and It was openly avowed It mci'.is the adding of additional members to It or the turning out ot olllco and reconstructing the whole court. I sold I will not follow any such revolutionary step as that. Whenever before In the his tory of this country has devotion to an In come tax been mode the test of democratic lojalty ? Never. Have you not undertaken enough , my good friends , now without seek ing to put in this platform those unneces sary , foolish and Hdlculoiu things ? What further have you done ? In this platform you have declared for the first time In the history of this country that you are opposed to any life tenure whatever for olllce. Our fathers before us , our demo cratic fathers whom wo revere , In the es tablishment of this government gave our court Judges a llfo tenure for office. What necessity was there In rovlvlng that ques tion ? How foollah and how unnecessary , In my opinion. Democrats whoso whole llfo haa been devoted to this party , men whoso hopes , whoso ambitions , whose aspirations , all He within pnrty lines , arc to bo driven out of the party upon this new quvstlou of life tenure of the court Judges of our fcdeial courts. This U a revolutionary step , this Is an unwise step , this Is an unprecedented - dented step In our party history. " HAS DODGED IT KVER SINCE. In answer to Senator Hill's request fop an explanation of this novel plank In their larty platform Mr. Bryan In his "cross of gild" speech replied : "They complain about the plank which declares against the life tenure In office- . They lwv tried to strain It to mean tbtat which It docs not mean. What we > oppose in that plank Is the- life tenure that la hieing built up In Washington , which ex cludes from participation In the benefits the humbler members of our society. I cannot thvell longer In my limited time. " Since the Chicago convention Mr. Bryan and all of the silver leaders have studiously avoided referring to the question of the supreme court. In his speech at Madison Square Garden , responding to the speech of Governor Stone notifying him of his nomlna- lon by the democratic party ns Its standard jenior , he said not ono word on any Issue except that of free coinage. In his formal ettcr of acceptance the only reference ho unkcs to this Important part of the Chicago cage platform Is as follows : "That the Anicrlcan people nro not In favor of llfo tenure In the civil service la evident from the fact that they , as a rule , make frequent changes In thplr ofllclal rep- FSMitatlvw when those repicstntatlvcs nro chosen by ballot. A permanent offlco-hold- ng claj > 3 Is not in harmony with our Insti tutions. A fixed term In arpolntlve nlllcee , except wlvsre the feleral corstltutlon now provides otherwise , \\ould open the public , bervleo to a large- number of citizens with out Impali'l'Jg Its efficiency. " In all his expressions upon this subject dr. Bryan leaves the public In the dark as o his real Intentions and as to the real uuanlng of the declaration against llfo enure. Mr. Bryan , however , previous to ils nomination , gave hla views upon thla subject to the public and those views are now of the utmost public Interest. Only nst January , whllo editor of the Omaha World-Herald. Mr. Bryan wtoto at length n editorial disquisition upon the Judiciary , n which he takes a .decided Bland In favor if an elective federal Judiciary holding olllco or definite terms. The article In quentlou s to bo found In tha Issue of the World- lerald of January C , 1S9G , In which It occu- iles over u column and a quarter of space.
