" 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." 8tortn la Kngland. . - 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 riving in port in a battered condition. 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 Gap market are so snowed up as to be in accessible, in consequence of which the supply is becoming scarce. It is re ported that five fishing smacks have been wrecked off Hastings and three persons drowned. A coast guard boat, whilo attempting to effect the rescue of the distressed seamen of Sandgute cap sized and several of those on board were drowned. IMltte Will He a Candidate. Loysox, March 10. Sir Charles Dilke has consented to be the liberal can didate for the Forest of Dean. In ac cepting the invitation to be a candidate SiT Charles said that he had often re lated his decision not to return to public life until he had cleaned his char acter. No legal process existed where by he could prove the falsity of the charge against him, and his vindication, presented to the public in pamphlet form enabled him to prefer tho troubles of political life to the case of a literary career. If the constituency, therefore, should ratify the action of their coun sel, he would coiucnt to be their can didate, Krvrii Killed by an J.iplwuinn. Glasugw, 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 made for several days. The Republi cans have as yet called no caucus. PROMISED PAY FOR TIME IN PRISON, An Ohio Man Goes to the Penitentiary 1'or a Coaalderatlon. 8pmxoiKi.D, O., March 10. Michael McFadden of Woodstock was released from the penitentiary few days ago and instituted suit against David Hen ley, a wealthy resident of Rush town ship, to recover f 1,340. In his petition McFadden cjaims that when he was sent to the penitentiary in lie8 for larceny it was on an agreement with Henley that 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- Ifaddea it is claimed that Homey eon was kept out of the penitentiary. Since McFadden' release Henley has refused to keep his part of of the agreement and the suit id now brought to recover the amonnt. J oh anon' CollapiM. Clevelaxp, O., March 10.

OPENING NEW RESERVATIONS. . A Stauipetla at the ( mur d'Alene and General Rejoicing In Mouth Uaketa. Spokane Falls, Wash., March 10. The passage of the bill opening Camr d'Alene reservation to settlement baa 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 tion, during the lat two days. More settlers are coming in by every train. They are waiting for the president to is sue a proclamnl ion. Trouble is feared, because some of the Indians will object to giv.ing up their lands. Brown's Valley, Minn., March 10. Hundreds of Indians belonging to the Sisseton and Wahpeton bands gathered here from the reservation and took part with the whites in celebrating the open ing of the 1,000,000 acres of the finest agricultural land in South Dakota.

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.

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 meets this week. Wilson is 72 years old, a Republican in pojitics, and has been a prominent figure in state politics in former years. In 173 lie represented Macomb county in the state legislature, STAY AWAY FROMcTflCAGO. The Starving, Hoasele and Idle Already T Numerous. 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 A Carload of Mall Ha rued. .Amkteiidam, N. Y., March 10.

"Will" Stroley and "Red" McCarthy, two burglars, were the ringleaders.

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."
