ARCHBISHOP WALSH PRO
POSES A CONVENTION.
Repreneiit alive of Oie Merzr ami People
of Ireland ami AdvlT From Atirixud

ToitOXTO, Oct, l8.--An the result of
his recent visit to Ireland, Archbishop
Walsh of Dio Roman Catholic church
, last night made public bin propositions
for harmony in Ireland as follows:
"Let a great national convention bo
held in Ilublin, composed of chosen
representatives of the clergy nnd
people of Ireland, und of tin advisory
representation of the Irish race abroiid.
In thatcoaventioti let Ireland speak out
Iier mind; let not her void be like
a broken musical instrument, emitting
discordant notes and jarring sound,
but let it, on the contrary, bo clear,
loud and emphatic, imirUng on unity
ami condemning faction. Let her
point out and uphold her parliamen
tary representatives whoso methods
urn conduct Ehu approves, and lot her
intirk out and condemn those whose
intolerance of control, personal jeal
ousies and animosities have done so
much to break the unity and wa-.te the.
strength of I he National party. Dis
heusions and feiulii have in the past
been tho ruin and cuims of Ireland.
Let her (stamp litem out anil cast them
from her as things moio noxious than
the serpents St. Patrick banished from
her shore In tltut convention let the
voice of Ireland's sons abroad bo
heard and their advice consid
ered. They live under free in
fctitations and arc accustomed to
the working of deliberative assem
blies anil representative govern
ments, and hence tho nuviee and ex
perience of tltcir chosen delegates,
in the present condition of Irish
affairs, woj Id be of the-utmost value
and importune;1. A gi'tmt national
convention, such as I venture to mg
gest, speaking with authority of tiie
nation itn l voicing its fixed and on
alterable pur:oxe to labor for and to
win the right of nelf-gnverument.
would give new hopo ur.d heart and
energy to Irishmen ut home and
abroad, und it would be able to restore
,unitv amongst the ranks of the Irish
Jx'titionalist reprctetitntivcs, to make
of them once more a compact body
and irrcsistoble power in the imperial
parliament. When Ireland speaks to
Kugllbhmen through such a body her
just demand cannot ha Jong refused
Lriward Make, member of parlia
ment for Longford, Ireland, heartily
concur in the piopositiooa, and urges'
their acceptance by all the factions in

noplp correspondent of the Times
dwells upon the vague rumors current
there ami upon the feeling of unrest
manifest in j iuclf by a decline upon
the bourse, by long faces in tho ba
yarn and by mysterious whisperings
of massacres in tins provinces, which
are wholly unsubstantiated. Mahom
medans declare a storm is brewing
which will sweep away the whole
dynasty and liberate Islam from the
thraldom of the hated ilatuidiun sys
tem, which cramps its energies and
paralyzes all its forces. The activity
at the Dardanelles continues, and
lO.Ouu additional men are under orders
to join the garrison. Now batteries
are building ut Purdatios, Nauiaisio
und Madjiitieh, armed with heavy
guns, All the. flannel in town ha

and all the whitesmiths are busy mak

THE POPE ON CONGRESSES
Text of llio Letter of the 1'ontlff Concern
liiB Mixed KellgioD Meeting.
MlLWAiKKH, Wis., Oct. 10 Arch
bishop Katzcr has reccireit a copy of
thi! letter of Cope Leo, sent to Mon
signor Satolli, bearing on religion !
congresses. It is typewritten, in
Latin, und addressed to Monsignor
Satolli. Following is a translation:
Venerable lirothor: Health und
apostolic benediction. We have
learned that in the l.'nited States
of America conventions are some
times held in which peoplo assem
ble promiscuously, Catholics as well
its those of other denominations, to
treat upon religion ns well us upon cor
rect morals. In this we recognize tho
desire for religions things by which
this people is unlimited more zealously
from day to day. Hut although thewo
proiui.scoiii conventions have lint ithis
day been tolerated with prudent
silence, it wouhl nevertheless seem
more advisable that tho Catholics
should hold their e inventions separ
ately and that, lest the utility of t he-o
conventions dhould result simply t'
their own benefit, they might bo called
with tho understanding that the ad
mittance should bo open to all, in
cluding thoso who aro outside, of the
"Whilst wo consider it incumbent
upon our apostolic ofiice, venerable
brother, to bring this to your knowl
edge, we nro also pleased by our rec
ommendation to promoto tho practice
of the I 'mi list fathers, who prudently
think to speak publicly to our dissent
ing brethren, in order to explain Cath
olic dogmas and answer the objections
gaiust them. If every bishop in bis
own diocese win promote this practice
nnd a frequent attendance of (hesouu ex ;,,,,,. was inevitable. Mo in
liMtt..lVIU if ill 1 l. ... 1 ' .....1 I . ,. . ...
sermons, it will be very pleasing and
acceptable to us, for we nre cootidcrit
that not a small benufll for the welfare
of souls will uriso therefrom.
"Wishing you in tho meantime, ven
erable brother, the gifts of divino
providence, wo impart to you with
the most, loving (spirit the apostolic;
benediction, a proof of our special
"f.'iven in Uoine at St. Peter's, S.;p.

HIS GRANT NOT HOPELESS
tVnlter' CoiicttHKlua in Mmlaeiwnr to lie
WAsniNfi'iov, Oct. is, - Counselor
Kennedy of the Waller ease is of tho
opinion that the turn which the course
of military affairs has taken in Mada
gascar in favor of tho French will
favorably affect the financial interests
of the ex-consul in that island. Jle
holds that the ownership of the laud
conceded to ir. Waller by tho Hova
government is a question entirely
M'paruto, from that of his guilt or
innocence of tho charge of aiding
and abetting the Hovtis in their war
with tho French. He bases this
opinion upon tho fuet that the grant
w as made previous to tho Frencli con
quest, und says that while Franco, at
the time, questioned the right of the
Ilovas to make the concession, the
government of tin: Tinted States had
not conceded France's right to Inter
fere in the management of tho internal
affairs of Madagascar. When France
assumes an undisputed protectorate in
the island, as it is presumed she will,
in view of the recent success of her
arms in that quarter, it will find that
various grunts have been made to citi
zens of ether countries, not only of
England aud ilermany, and it is sun
posed that the Waller grant will be
put on the same basis as these.

WAS ROBBED OF $50,000.
fort '! t Slate Itanlc t leaned Ont by
For.T Scott, Kan., Oct. IS. The ag
gregate of the embezzlement from tho
closed State bank of this city of ex-
Cashier J. 11. Colcau is declared by
Vice President J. S. Stewart to bo
fully $50,OOD. This has renewed tho
excitement and shattered tliobopcsof
many of the depositors and all of the
stockholders. The amount stolen is
two-thirds of tho paid rip capital stock
and more than the other third will be
required to collect on the securities.
Colean literally robbed tho bank of
nil the ci'.sh except 00 ) of thu re
serve fund and realized on jf'.'O.OOl) of
the best securities by rcdiseounting
Tho recreant casheir has mado a
btatemunt to Vice President Stewart,
telling from which accounts lie took
tho money und says that most of it
was taken since he made his last
statement in July, lie confessed hav
ing robbed tho fo, lowing aceounts:
Kansas City tanks (cash) Hf-VWO; St.
Louis banks (cash) $'1,300; Now York
banks (cash) $',.100; reserve fund, S'.i,
OIM); deposits on certificates (cash) 8V
4un, rcdiscountcd notes Jfl l,(ioo.
The examination has resulted in the
development that Colean, in bis con
fession, did not tell ul bus ?'.'. 0(10 of the
best notes cannot bo found and liome
of them are known to have been rcdis
countcd in St. Louifi.
In his lust statement Colean said
that ho went to St. Louis for tho ex
press purpose of confessing to Presi
dent Coon, realizing that his robbery
had so crippled the bank that it eou d
run only a few days longer nnd that
sistcd that lie had lost ull the money,
having dealt largely through tho
stocks und bonds commission house of
(iaylord & blessing in St. Louis.
The bank oflicers stiil promise a pay
ment in full to all depositors, but it is
ii'luiilti'd that the stock is literally
wiped out. The fact that the robbery
was systematically perpetrated under
the very fyes of the otlieet'ij and that
thu defalcation i;o far exceeds the sum
first announced has created conster
nation. Colean will be arrested as soon us bo
recovers siilliciently to be taken to
jail. He is still helpless from nervous
prostration and is perfectly childish.
The full extent of the shortage will
not be known till outstanding drafts
und tho foreign accounts are fully re
ported. FOR CORBETT'S ARREST,

BANKERS AT ATLANTA
ANNUAL CONVENTION OF
rrealdent Odetl Prali- i (lie Adm!nUtr:tlon
Highly In Jin four's ou tiie llonil Qce"
tlon Our 1'resent Currency System In
It Drplorahlo Mate.
Arr.AUTA, Ga., Oct. 10. The Ameri
can Bankers' association began its
annual convention at 10 o'clock this
morning with an unusually large at
tendance of delegates and a liberal
sprinkling of visitors and on lookers.
Tho association was welcomed by May
or King and 0. (I. Jordan, president
of the State Hankers' association.
President .John J. P. O'Oell respond
ed in behalf of the visiting bankers
and then delivered his annual address.
He concluded us follows: "A year
Bgo, ut your convention in Balti
more, a plan for the reformation
of our ' national currency system
was adopted, and while tho recom
mendations of tho association did
not meet xvitu universal approval, the
action of the convention gave rise to a
most extensive agitation of tho cur
rency question, both in and out of
congress, und a great deal of valuable
discussion followed. Tho effort of
the association to deal with this sub-
Ioct has not been fruitless, aud it is to
10 hoped that the agitation thus initia
ted will continue until the government
shall abandon the issuance of notes,
and a more perfect currency system
shall be adopted. The evils of our pres
ent system were never more apparent
than to-day. During the period
fclnce we last met together our
country has passed through an experi
ence that will not soon be forgotten.
Following a season of universal liqui
dation ami distress, the country was
confronted by a national treasury
forced almost to the very verge of
bankruptcy, and was saved from this
only by the heroic and patriotic action
of a wise and courageous president.
For weeks uncertainty nnd confusion
prevailed, and were, not allayed until
by the sale of a large amount of bonds
the government recovered its gold
reserve. That this expedient offered
but temporary relief we Lave
had ample evidence and the signs are
not wanting to indicate that we have
yet more trouble in (store, unless we
shall depart entirely from the present
makeshift and pernicious system of
governmental note issues. With a sci
entilie monetary' system, based upon
the standard which has received the
indorsement of the most civilized na
tions, we may feel assured that
the intelligent and energetic peo
ple of the United States will de
velop aud utilize to all extent beyond
the dreams of the wildest visionary
tho marvelous resources which nature
has with such generosity bestowed
upon hs, until wo shall take our
true place among the nations of
the earth, tho foremost in material
prosperity and moral worth, which
will be manifested in the advance
ment of our arts end science,
nnd iii the daily life of our people.
Toduy were it not for our uncertain
currency system, wc might well con
gratulate, ourselves on the condition
of affairs. Abundant crops have
rewarded the labors of the husband
man, the xvheels of industry lire mov
ing more smoothly and rapidly, con
fidence is taking the place of doubt,
assurance of hesitation, and altogether
the prospect but for one fciugle cloud,
is full of encouragement. With the
increasing prosperity of the people we
may hope to prosper, even us
we suffer with them in their
misfortunes. To us, as bonkers, is
committed the duty of maintaining
the credit of our people. This xvo can
do by abiding by those principles of
financial morality the truth of which
time und experience have demon
strated. Upon us, ns an association,
rests a large responsibility to combat
error, to contend for the truth, to as
sist in raising the standard of commer
cial and national honor, to extend the
hontiment of brotherly fellowship
this is our mission. Are we capable of
discharging tho tru:-tV I think xve

ley, the national committeeman
from Maine, had expressed the
wish to him that San Francisco
might bo tho next convention place ol
the Republican party, and that many
of the other members of the Eastern
states had expressed tho same desire.
"As for myself," he continued "I have
not made up my mind. It is sure to
go to Chicago, Pittsburg or San Fran
cisco, ami every ono of tho three
places named will suit me.
"What do I think of the probable
nominee of the party?" Mr. Thurston
went on. "Well, my state is rather
inclined toward Mclvinley, but I hear
Allison or Reed of Maine frequently
referred to as available or safe for the
party. Harrison, did you say?
Never. Ho ia entirely out of the
question. 1 believe there was
an attempt to work him into
tho tight, but it has about given up.
Don't you recall that old line, 'Thou
dost protest too much.' That ap
plies to Harrison. He will never do.
Will the Republican party give the
West a free coinage plank? ' Yes, 1
think so. Ono similar to the plank of
the last campaign; but 1 do not think
the Republicans or the Democrats
either will ever declare for the free
and unlimited coinage of silver with
out regard to any other country. I
think the money question will ha-e to
be settled in sucii a way that there
will never be any great disturbance in
money values. I have always thought
that way aud cannot see it in any
other light. So far as the political
situation is concerned as a whole it is
a little early to make any definite
statements, as they would l8 some
what in the nature of a conjecture."
GOV. CLARKE WARLIKE.
ArLanmu XilllU to lie Called Out U
Stop the Trize Flutlitcrs.
Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 10. Gov
ernor Clarke yesterday furnished fresh
evidence of his determination to pre
vent the Corbett -I'itzsimmons fight at
Hot Springs in Arkansas. A telegram
was sent by the governor to Rrigadier
General George P. Taylor, of Forest
City, of tho Arkansas state guard,
summoning him to a conference at
once. The meaning of this conference
is that the governor desires to acquaint
himself xvith tho available strength of
the state militia so that he may net
knowingly if tho situation at Hot
Springs reaches a crisia where thi
services of the militia may be required.
According to the offers contained in
telegrams and letters received at the
executive oilice, Governor Clarke esti
mates that the services of 10,000 men
are at his disposal for the purpose of
putting down the fight if needed.
These offers come from all parts of the
A vigorous determination to prevent
the fight is plainly discernible in the
significant proceedings at, the execu
tive ofiice. Indeed, Governor Clarke
was more emphatic than ever in say
ing that the light would not bo al
lowed to come off in Arkansas. He
goes so far as to say that if the affair
occurs as advertised at Hot Springs he
wouhl resign and try to find an ofiice
he could run. The governor says Cor
bett and Fitzsimmpns have been
warned, and if they liow arrive at Hot
Springs, bent on the mission of light
ing, their presence in that city or
county will be construed as an over!
act and treated accordingly.

sa quorum at the Centropolis hotel

meeting was changed into a general
nnd informal conference of Populist
leaders under tho chairmanship o)
Mr. Rozelle. The financial problem
and its attendant question the free
coinage of silver came in for a liberal
share of discussion, and the consensus
of the conference favored a continua

At last night's session the question
of the "initiative and referendum'
came up for consideration in the form
of a resolution introduced by J. 11.

"We recommend that in the next
national platform of the People's party
there be a demand for nueh direct leg
islation as is embodied in tho initia
tive and referendum."
The document was only formally in
troduced last evening, and at to-day's
session it was presented to tho con
ference. Immediately upon its read
ing Percy Pcpoon, a St. Louis repre
sentative, offered an amendment add
ing to it. tho words "including pro
portional representation. "
The amendment precipitated a
heated argument. The resolution
was, however, adopted. The confer
ence then proceeded to map out a plan
for raising campaign funds.

ticed medicine there till two years
ago when she brought her children to
Kansas City and opened tin ofiice here.
On the witness Ktand Dr. Stevens

contempt. As an instance of his rougli
conduct toward her she related that
once she was consulting with another
doctor down stairs, when the baby,
which was in bed with its father up
stairs, began to cry. She went upand
said to him: "Why didn't you put that
oaby to sleep?" and ho to d her ho

not attend to her household duties."
At another time she had been up all
nigiit with a typhoid fever patient and

band to send the carriage for her.
She had to walk home, and when she
reproached him for it, lie replied: "A
little walk w ill do you good."
Dr. otcvens said that when she got
home that jnorning he didn't even
have breakfast ready. "And more,
than that, ho just laid around and
didn't help me get the dinner."
