TCSZT CIUMIXAL LAW.
OlailstoHj lirautitc * Jhbnte In the House of
London , March ! 2) . Gladstouo resumed the
debate on the Irish criminal law amendment
bill iIds vvenin * ; in the house and was loudly
cheered wheu he arose. lie said that an
bme so irravc , proposals so extreme , as thou
now put forth by the jjorermncut , require
ample tune for consideration. lie found hlm-
bound l'lirnell's amendment
elf to support ,
because the ground upon which Balfour
baMd Uie government's case was absolutely
instd'icient ami unsatisfactory. The govern-
uteut's bill Instead of being a cure for Irish
Ids was a measure that would aggravate deep
nested disorder. He then controverted
Dalfour's statements regarding au Increase of
crime in Ireland , referred in detail to cases
adduced by Ilalfour of league tyranny over j
persons , and , continuing , said that boycotting
was bad I'tiouirli. but Has not coutlued to tl' .e
naUonallxtH. He kucu of a l'rotestaut clergy-
man who hau been deprived ot his living be

The oppos.tion. the sueaker continued ,
wou.d insist upou having the fullest opportu
nity to examine the provisions of the bill.
Every Irl-h and every Kuglish member should
have the fullest scojic for juvscntiug his views
[ theeml and for silting and scrutinizing the
proposal * of the government. Among its
nuist insulting aud exasuentting proposals
ihe worst ever submitted to parliament
was the urovision that Irish trials should be
bed in London He had never known such a
blow at the national feeling of Ireland. The
government could devise nothing more likely
to aggravate every existing evil. As to the
permanent duration of the bill , the proposals
mane one's blood boil. To establish what was
formrrlr oulya temporary remedy as a per
manent rule of exiuteuee for society In Ire-
laud would put the brand of Inferiority upon
Irelau.l forever , recognizing as a llxed princi
ple that lorce was a remedy.
If tUe liberals Hceeded to the appeals of the
government the result would be retro resslou.
Irish people would return to a state of things
which liberal efforts had already partly reme
died. He closed by predicting liberal success
as the result of such efforts.
Mr. Go chcn taunted Mr. Gladstone with
his alliance with the national league. He
a > ked him how he would continue to met't the
league's constantly increasing demands until
absolute scuaration should Le completed. He
regret ed the absence from Mr. Gladstone's
-tvech of any condemnation of Irish crime or
; iie violent language of Irish agitator.The
liberal leader had rather suggested a defens-e
of those crime : ? . He read extracts from
judge 's charges ou the dilliculths attending
the administration of the laws , and , contin
uing , asked whether this evidence , though not
slati-tieal. should be disregarded. It was
well kuowu that jurors were in danger of their
Gladstone's speech was widely commented
apoti as an effective ex5 > c < ure of the feeble
ness of the government's reasons for demand
'us coereiou. The strength of his reasoning
was admitted by the conservatives and felt
keenly bv * the unionist liberals , most of whom
threaten to secede unlets the coercion bill be
reduced to simple provisions against boycot
ting .md the ulau-of campaign. The conser
vatives already talk of drooping the proposals
relating to the transfer ot jury trial. , espe-
ca'ly since the uutouist papers iu the pro
vinces d < ciare them untenable.
'the Giadstonians are confident that they

aud in the meanwhile arc ho ; > cful that the ev-
'iution of events will foil the whole scheme.

IJad.cal societies throughout the country
are passing resolutions against the coercion

English radical press denounces the measure
in laugu : ge of passionate indignation.

8EXSAT10XAL DAT IX COURT.
Made So by the Fact that Zeavltt Testifies la
the Killing of Rev. Haddock.
A Sioux City dispatch of the 28th saya :
Not Dne-qunrter of tho crowd that sought
adriiittniico to tho court house to-day
could Ijo admitted. A much larger number
of Indies than ever before were present.
Harry L. Leavitt was called to the stand
• early. Al Adams , Wm. Williamson , Geo.
A. Long and Simon Adelshcim preceded
Leavitt , but nothing now or startling do-
' velopcd. Leavitt engroBBed attention and
J told a wonderfully well connected and
graphic story of tho tragedy , together with
important incidents before and alter. He
i j testified that he became acquainted with
I I ' John Arensdorf in January , 188G. Said
• tho witness : "Ho furnished mo beer , S15
• to $75 worth of beer a weok. I used to
see him at my flu titer. I returned from
' > tho cast threo days before tho killing of tho
Ilev. Haddock. That night I slopped in a
' room over Jack McOie's place. 1 opened
tho theater August 10 , metF. Munchrath ,
jr. , next Monday und J. M. Simon-
son about 2 p. m. Simonson and I
went out to call a meeting of saloonkeep
ers. Wo went to Charley Warlich's Tric-
ber's , Cormeny's and several other places.
Siinonson talked to each saloonkeeper.
SinioiiHon notified tho men to meet at
Holdenreid's hall that night. 1 joined the
saloonkeeper's union. That night ride
was about one hour in duration. I went
into Champion & Sharer's saloon and then
camo to tho courthouse and saw F. M.knch
cratli. I remained in the court house
about twenty minutes. The injunction
cases against saloonkeepers were being
tried. I went from the court house to
Dock Darlington's saloon , near the depot.
Dr. Haddock was on the witness stand
when I was in the court house. I weut
with Dock Darlington to the saloonkeep-
cib' meeting that night in Holdenreid's
hall. The meeting was in the front room ,
upstairs. Munchrath , Cormeny , I lock Dar
lington , Warlich and John Arensdorf wete
there. The meeting was called to order by
Simon Adelsheim. Adelsheim said he did
not know what authority Siinonson had
to call this meeting. Simoiisiin said the
meeting was called for the purpose of mak
ing Leavitt and Dock Darlington members
of the union. Munchrath said it would cost
me $25. I told him to put my name down
and call at the theater and get the money.
I signed my name to the membership list.
Darlington said he would pay but $5. I was
then admitted. Ilessegioa moved toadjo.urn
aud the meeting then adjourned. Just as
they adjourned Trieber and Munchrath
called to me andsaid : Wait a few moments.
Siinonson , Trieber Arcnsdmf , Mimclirath ,
Platli and myself remained. One other
man remained but I don't know who ho
was. Trieber said he had succeeded in get
ting two Dutchmen to whip the Kov. Had-
.dock , or they would if they could get pay.
Arensdorf replied that there was $700 or
$ S00 in Junk's safe , and that ought lo bo
siifiicient. Munchrath asked if Iliad a slug
ger. I told him 'Yo , and that he was
working at the depot. ' He said for me to
go down with liiui to the depot and t bathe
would approach him about whipping the
Kev. Haddock. The mini's name was Dan
Moriarity. Arensdorf then said we ought
to blow up or burn down Haddock or Tur
ner's house , and that brewers had too
much money at stake to bo ruined by theso
. We then adjourned. Met Munch
rath near Nash's store the next day about
II a. in. We went down to the depot and
talked to Dan Moriarity ; met him in the
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul yard. We
talked to Moriart.y about whipping Had
dock and Wood. Moriarity said he would
not whip anybody. He was then offered
$100 to do the job. He refused. We then
left. Was at the court house in the after
noon. Injunction cases were then going on.
Remained in the court room ten or fifteen
minutes ; saw Fred Munchrath in the court
room that day ; saw George Trieber also.
Got supper at Johnson's about 5:30 or 6
o'clock. Was in Cochran s gambling house
after supporforsonie time ; left and went to
the English Kitchen after some beer and
lunch to take home ; met Platfc , Trieber ,
Munchrath , Peters , and two Germans on
the corner near the Sioux City National
bank. T"e Germans were Granda and Bis-
Marck. 1 t-topped and talked with them.
They said that Kevs. Haddock and Turner
had gone to Greenville to get evidence
against saloon keepers. Tribersaid 'let us
go down ami see liow they get it. ' Myself ,
Trieber and Peters and Piatt got in a hack
and went to Greenville. Peters got out at
Greenville and asked if the preachers wero
there. The saloon keeper said 'no. ' Wo
then drove back to Junk's saloon and got
out. Trieber got money of Junk and paid
the driver.We went into a saloon and re
mained there three or four minutes. Saw
James Scollard , R. G. Granda , John Arens
dorf and James Junk. Then we went out
ou the sidewalk. Bismarck came up and
said tho buggy had returned. Arensdorf
6aid , 'Let us go up and see. ' We all walked
up toward Water street. Trieber , P att ,
Bismarck , myself , Arensdorf and Peter
walked down the street , the two latter in
the lead. Henry Sherman walked with me.
Wo met Jack Ryan near Pearl street. We
stopped on the corner of Fourth and.Water
streets. While standing there Munchrath
said , 'Give the Rev. Haddock a black eye ,
but don't get us into trouble. ' Arensdorf
said something about drunken Dutchmen.
I saw Haddock coining along the street
from toward the Columbia houue. John
Arensdorf started towards him. The Rev.
Ha block and Arensdorf met about the cen
tre of the crossing , when they met Avens
dorf looked into Haddock's face. Had
dock raised his hand. Arensdorf walked
on a step , then fired , Haddock
staggered and fell ; Aienstlorl ran on west ; 1
ran toward Water street. Everybody
stood in amazement for a second add then
ran ; Peteis was behind Arensdorf ten feet ,
but ran on west. I lost sight of Arensdorf
as he was running about tea feet from me.
Peters was seven or eight Teetbehind Arens
dorf. I ran to Ryan's house on Water
Btreet. Mr. Riley and Mr. Dawson and
wire were there. I went into Riley's room
to talk to Mr. and Mrs. Riley. I went to
Dawson's room and talked with hini and
his wife about the murder. Dawson left my
room and returned with my wife , whom I
had left at Johnson's. My wife and I went
to our rooms on Fourth btreet. I went to
Johnson's house first ; saw Mr. and Mrs.
Johnson there ; traded hats with Plath be
fore the murder ; saw John Arensdorf next
morning after the shot. I Baid : 'Hello ,
John. ' He said : 'Hello. Leavitt. 5 He said
he felt well ; he asked it I saw the shooting.
I said'yes , it was a bad thing John , and
you should not have done it. ' He said : 'I
know it , but we all must keep it still. ' Ho
asked me if ho could depend on me , a
brother Knight of Pythias ? I said he
could. I met him again that day in front
of Mason's barber shop. He said he had
just been up before the cor
oner , but ho did not know anything.
He said Harry Peters would W

An Official Account of the Late EarthqitaUe
Washington dispatch : Tho secrotary ot
itato has received Irom Hat > eway , United
States consul at Nico , a dispatch d ated tin
3d instant , containing an arcouu t ot tin
earthquake which occurred at th at citj
on the 23d ot February last. Ha Ihewnj
states that tho phenomena wore mor o dis
tinctly perceptible at threo minutes to G
o'clock iu tho morning. The vibrations
were vertical , longitudinal and transversal ,
and oi not less than 30 seconds i u dura
tion. The maBsivo stone buildings of th
city were then moved , lilted and shaken , as
it seemed to their occupants , liko ships at
sea or trees struck by a tempestuous wind.
Tho inhabitants at that time were wearily
sleeping after the excitement and festivities
ot the carnival. Tho first shock was fol
lowed by another ot somewhat less intens
ity , undulating from east to west , and ac
companied by a noiso in the air like tho
blowing of the "in stral , " tho sound of fall
ing walls and terrible voices mingled in
alarm. Tho sky became illuminated with
a red glimmering light , apparently elec
tric in its quality , ami unusual
at dawn. The entire population , hal
clothed , wero in the streets. Many
were quite linn and courageous. Otheis
were trembling and unnerved. At thirty-
five minutes past 8 o'clock a. in. a third
shock was felt , more intense than the pre
ceding , which consummated the excite
ment. The railway station then beca tne
crowded with fugitives pressing for escape
to Marseilles and Paris. Some soughttin -
mote open streets and public squares. A
few obtained carriages for shelter and some
less fearful watchfully remained in the
basements ot their dwell ngs or hotels.
Tho weather was warm and cloudless.
Happily but one life was lost as the imme
diate result ot this disaster. The munici
pal committee entrusted with the pro tec
tion of all damaged houses have reported
that of 58,000 buildings iu Nice three have
been demolished , eight must be taken
down , fifty-one in danger , and 3" )0 ) are
cracked ond otherwise damaged. The act
ual loss to real property alone isestiinated
at 50,000 000 francs. The National
Chamber of Deputies have voted 1000,000
francs for the relief of th ? poor. Not only
Nice and its neighborhood , but the whole
const , from Genoa to Marseilles , was more
or less affected by the earthquake. But
few of the transient people of Nice remain
in that city.

New York special : A local paper to-day
says : Since the time when the members of
the Irish National league of Boston , with
John Boyle O'Reilly at their head , issued
the announcement that $1,000 would bo
paid if an informer could be found to tell
who assaulted Lord Frederick Cavanaugh
and Mr. Burke , in Phoenix park , Dublin ,
nothing has occurred in this country that
has created such a sensat.on among tho
Irish-American element as the proclama
tion by John Fitzgerald , president of the
Irish National league of America published
yes-teiday , ostensibly an appeal for money
to help along the Parnellite modo of war
fare. It is thought by many to be really
a call to arms and a distinct threat that
preparations will be made on a
large scale to carry out the dynamite
explosions , which was the order of the day
two years ago in London and other .
large renters or English population. If the g
Irish sentiment both here and in Brooklyn 1
is to be believed , there will soon be a reign j |
of "blood aud thunder" in England should
the coercion act bs passed by parliament.
Several Irish nationalists from this and
neighboring cities met last evening to dis
cuss the present position of the Irish ques
tion and to suggest what , in their opinion ,
should be done to meet the proposed coer
cion act. William J. Knoud was present
and his speech was the most important of
the evening. He said it was a waste of
time to rely any further on parliamentary
effort and that if anything was to be dona
it should be in the line of force of some
form or other so that the English would f
understand that the day for speech- "
making and wordy resolutions which hurt
nobody had passed. He added :
"Mrs. Parnell , mother of the great
Irish leader , was under this roof several
months , and what I told her many times I
now repeat : That while Parnell may be
an able man , his usefulness has reached its
limit and the work ot Irish nationalists
henceforth must be revolution and dy
namite or other force that will help to
paralyze the ojipressors of our country.
[ Applause. ] How can we fight , do you
ask ? Look here [ pointing to old swords
and guns and revolvers that be brought
back from the war hanging around the
room ] , do you see these ? We have given i
jp attempting to fight England with such ; ;
weapons. WtJ will fight her now with dyna-
mite , poison , knives , fire , every weapon ' ;
die ingenuity of man can devise , in the jfe
words of the manifesto if , of course , th * *
: oercion bill1 be passed. Doyouknow that ;
this continued persecution of Ireland haa * \ -
made dynamiters of moderate men ? "
