Loxdox, Sfarch 10.A Dublin letter
aays Archbishop Walsh does not ap
prove of the extreme course taken by
those of his fellow prelate who bold
out excommunication as the penalty for
the followers of Parnell. While hold
ing positive vkws, both os to tho folly
and evil effect upon tho nation's politi
cal and moral interest of giving count
enance to Parnell, tbe , archbishop does
not propose to treat either clergymen or
laymen among Parnell'B aupiiortcr any
different in a religious sense from what
he treats others. This, however, is not
the view generally held by the high pre
lates, and the indications are that the
Irish people will have to choose between
Parnell and the church.
The Freeman' Journal publishes a
letter from bir Charles Cavan Dnffy in
which that gentleman says that the
policy of the independent opposition
which Mr. Parnell has so far carried on
successfully, originated in 1847 with the
Irish confederation. Then, with Catho.
lie episcopacy, they resisted the policy
with all their power and banished the
priests to penal parishes for their sup
port of the independent party. Later,
by reason of corruption and intrigue, it
became reduced from fifty to live mem
bers of parliament, the bishops always
condoning or approving every act of
treachery. Tlie letter concludes us fol
lows: "Until all this clerical inter
ference is changed there is no more hope
for the Irish cause than there is for a
corpse on the dissecting table."

Loxpoir, March 10. The worst snow
storm of the season swept over the
United Kingdom, tho wind blowing at
a fearful velocity, driving the snow
around in drifts two and three feet
deep. The streets are deserted by both
pedestrians and vehicles, while railway
communication with the eubarbs of
London is almost entirely cut
off. Telegraphic communication
with the provinces is suspended,
as the wires are down in
all directions. The English channel is
simply one expanse of boiling, seething
water, the waves dashing over the pier
at Dover, washing everything away.
Across the channel steamer -are "ar

It is possible that but little is known
of the magnitude of the storm. The
banks of the Thames from - Richmond
are inundated. The wagons iu Covent

accessible, in consequence of which the
supply is becoming scarce. It is re

FIGHT FOR PLACE.
Chicago Iteteetlvea to Watch the Call-
Sachaiiexto, Cal.. March 10. Bal
loting for a successor to Senator Hearst
will begin to-day. A queer develop
ment of the senatorial fight is the story
that five Chicago detectives have arrived
here to witness the balloting. Iu
formation of their presence was brought
to the city by a Sacramento man, who
came from the cast on the same train.
The detectives said they were going to
Monterey to escape the rigors of a
Chicago winter, but got off at Sacra
mento. What business they have here
can only be guessed at, out as tney are
known to havo been making the ac
quaintance of lobbyist and members, it
is believed that they are here on sena
torial business. One story is that they
have been employed by the national
Democratic committee to procure evi
dence off-corruption, and in case the
senator to be elected boys his seat, he
will be followed to Washington and
prevented from taking his seat. The
candidates are Morris M. Estee, ex-
Congrcssnian George u. Felton, M. II.
Delonng, George II. Bonebrake, ex
Governor George C. Perkins, General
N. P. Chipman and ex-Senator A. P,
Williams. Tbe Democratic vote will
probably go to one of the following per
sons: James V. Coleman, ex-Mayor
Pond. Congressman Thomas J. Clunio
or Wm. D. English, The Republicans
have a maiontv of sixty in the legisla
ture, but it is thought no choice will le

McFadden of Woodstock was released
from the penitentiary few days ago
and instituted suit against David Hen

McFadden cjaims that when he was sent
to the penitentiary in lie8 for larceny it

if lie would file a plea of guilty he
would be paid for the time in the pent
tentiary. Tbia McFadden did and was
in the peniteniary about two years. By
the plea of guilty on the part of Mc-

Spokane Falls, Wash., March 10.
The passage of the bill opening Camr

created a stampede almost equal to the
Oklahoma craze. For several months
large numbers of people have been
camped along the borders of the reser
vation, and fully 2,000 men have ioured
into Port Falls and Ccenr d'Alene City,
which are on t b border of the reserva

settlers are coming in by every train.

Chicago, March 10. One universal
aigh of relief went up from the passen
ger departments of western roads when
it was learned that there was another
postponement in the Alton' demand
for a 2 cent miloage rate. Preoident
Hook of the Jacksonville and Southeast
ern had telegraphed to Chairman Finley
that he would like a delay and could
give the Alton assurances which would
obviate the necessity of the 2 cent rate.
This reduction ha been the most prom
inent qnestion for some time to western
roads and they propose to nuite in any
proposition which will save the present
rate basis. The Alton's position has
not been changed.

Lansing, Mich,, March 10. All Lens
ing was stirred up when Thomas M.
Wilson wa arrested on a warrant con
taining six counts, charging him with
embezzlement of state fundi. He has
for fourteen years been a member of the
stato lward of auditors, and the charges
contain amounts aggregating fi.CW, the
period ot peculation extending back
over n period of two years. The cora-
glaintts made by Secretary of State
oper. For aeveral years tho money for
rent of a building owned by the state aud
formerly occupied by state officers has
been paid to him, and for two year he
has not turned it in. When arrested ho
was "all brokrn up," but confessed to
having appropriated tl.200. He begged
for mercy, and said if given five hours'
time be would pay back the money. The
officers, however, were not disposed to
settle it, and he was at once taken into
court. He waived examination and was
held for trial to the circuit court, whiish

The Starving, Hoasele and Idle Already
Chicaoo, March 10. Despite the
warning that have been printed by the
press throughout the country, unem
ployed men and lads from almost every
section of the continent oouKnue to
pour into tbe city in anticipation of
finding something to do, and as a result
the situation is getting absolutely ser
ious. The number of eople out of
work in this city can scarcely be esti
mated, and private residences are Iw
sieged and pedestrians importuned by
unfortunate strangers, the majority of
them of a much higher order of appear
ance than the genus tramp, but who find
themselves literally without a crust
to eat or a place to lay
their heads. Extraordinary a it may
seem. Chicago, with all its wealth and
its charities, has not one solitary place
where a hungry man can get a loaf of
bread or a cup of coffee, or even where
he can find a rough board plank to rest
hi weary bones. Hundreds, if not
thousands, of men are traveling the
streets all through the night witb the
thermometer at zero, or the skies pour
ing down sleet, and knowing not where
to get a bit to eat when daylight comes
again. Unless history fails fo repeat it
self, a carnival of crime, and possibly
bread riots to boot, will be the outcome
of this condition of affairs. Meanwhile,
the fact cannot be too strongly empha
sized that men without employment an
better off almost anywhere than in Chi
cago. . ;- ,r

Pardon Pa nloni
Washisoton, March 10. Western
people here are taking a great deal of in
terest in the new semi-political organi
zation known as tbe "Knights of Reci
procity." They think they in it a
counter-irritant for the Farmers' Al
liance. The Knights of Reciprocitf
tarted in Kansas last November after
the triumph of the Alliance. Mr. 8. B.
Peters one of the founder of tbe order,
ha gone back to Kansas. Before going
he aaid: "Application has been sent
from Washington for the establishment
of a lodge of the Knights of Reciprocity
here. Application have been received
at the central office from every state aad
territory in the union. The new order
is a secret organization, and therefore
the public baa not been made aware of
it rapid growth and development. It
has the same social feat area
a the Farmers' Alliance, and its object
is to embrace, eventually, all those who
believe in the following principles:
'First, a desire for t he perpetuity of tbe
Union, advocacy of liberal pensions to
all honorably discharged soldier and
sailors of ths late war, the protection of
American industry, reciprocity between
all friendly nations, or fair trade, esne-,
daily with those nations on the Ameri
can continent; reciprocity also between
all classes in our ualion; including a
community of interest which should ex
ist between producers and consumers,
between manufacturers and operatives
between common carrier and shippers;
a fair and honest ballot; and lastly the
disfranchisement of every person offering
or accepting bribes or attempting im
properly to influence the balloting."
