Irish Homo Rule Bill Passes Its First Head

For Irish Sclf-Oovcrnmcnt.
, LONDON , . Anril la Sir William Vernon
Hnrcoiut , chancellor of the exchequer , to
night resumed the debate on the Irish bill In
the house of commons. Ho said that those
Who condemned the government's measure
failed to state an acceptable alternative
"Reference , " said the speaker , "has Dcon
made to the Irish In Amcilca. This liouso
cannot for a moment be Influenced by the
notion of dastardly assassins like ford
and others , but the Iilsh nation In
America Is as numerous as the Iilsh are at
home. All possess the Ramo Instincts and
the same sympathies. They have not been
- parties to the actions of assassins [ heart
licarlj. These actions of assassins receive
universal condemnation from the people of
the United Stales [ Irish and liberal chccrsj.
lint If you reject this bill do
you bclievo , are you sure , there will
not bo sympathy with those assassins
-nnd their schemes ? [ Hisses nnd cries of Oh I
Ohlj I believe there wilt bo universal con-
demnatlon and disapprobation from right-
thinking people Irlsn and American of
such treatment of the Irish people. " [ Irish
cheers. ]
In the course of an energetic speech , Mr.
Ooschen contended that there was no anal
ogy between the position of Ireland
and Kncland , and that of Norway
or Sweden , or Austria and Hungary.
Irish and English Interests , bo bald , woie so
Inteilaccd that when they came lo the
finance question they would linil it difficult
to decide whether the Income to bo taxed was
. .English or Irish. Their interest could
not bo disassociated. In conclusion
( joscheu denied Ihat liruiness could bo
called coercion , and said there would bo no
repression If thcio was no crime. The re
sponsibility ot weakening the ties which
unite the British islands tested with the pre
mier nnd his followers. Those resisting a
break up of thu enipho must close uu their
ranks , and shoulder In shoulder resist the
bill. [ Knthuslastic cheering. ]
Mr. Gladstone replied' considerable
length. Jlo denied that the safeguaids pro
vided In the bill were dictated by distrust of
the Irish people. On the contrary , they were
insetted In conscquciios of the mistrust
that was felt by otheis. Sir. Gladstone
argued that the lundiiinental fear
of those who attack the homo
rule measure was that the Irish people would
necossa'rily do wiong ; that the adniinistra-
lion of llio country would necessarily bo
changed. [ Cries of hear , hear.J In regard to
questions as to the power of the veto as pro
posed by the bill , he stated that there was no
limitation to that piopositlon , and
In lefetenco to the Income tax ,
that it would neccssaiily bo as separate In
Ireland as It would be In Knclaiid. Of the
bill generally , ho said It proposed to give to
the IrWi people a icasoimblo satisfaction to
their demand without imitating the example
set by llio former government In the
case of America. He ildiculcd the
fear that has been expressed as
lo llio future demands on the
part of the Irish members if this bill were
passed , and as to the question of there hav
ing been no mandate tor this measure , ho
contended that inasmuch as there had been *
no inundate lor coercion or for maintaining
the law , so no mandate was necessary
for proposals lo strengthen the means
of maintaining tlio law. He compared the
criticisms on the bill , and pointed out that
rpo one speech agreed with another , and
speaking of the measure as a plan , ho re
marked that It might bo improved , lint at
any rate It held the Held , as also did the
subject. [ Loud chcers.J
Tlio motion that leave bo given to Intro
duce was tint by the speaker and agreed to
without division amid protracted and en
thusiastic cheering.

Ati Accommodating Judge.
Texas Sittings : There is in Idaho
Tcrrilory n judge who is well known aq
"Alee Smith. " A woman brought suit
in his court for divorce , and nad the
discernment to select n particular friend
of her own , who stood well with the
judge , as her attorney. Ono morning
the Judge called up the Case , nnd , ad
dressing himself lo the attorney tor the
complainant , said : "Mr. II. , I don't
think people ought to bo compelled to
live together where they don't want to.
and I will decree a divorce in this case. "
Mr. II. bowed blandly. Thereupon the
judgcturning lo another attorney , whom
no look to bo the counsel for the defend
ant , said : "Mr. Mr. , I suppose you have
no objection to the decree ? " Mr. M.
nodded assnnt. But the attorney for the
defendant was another Mr. M. , not then
in court. Presently ho came in , and ,
finding that his client had been divorced
without a hearing , began to remonstrate.
"Alec" listened a moment , then inter
rupted , sayiui ; : "Mr , M. , it is too late.
Thu court lias pronounced the decree of
divorce , and the parties are no longer
man and wife. But , if you want to argue
the case right bad , tlio court can marry

Au Englishman , writing about the stage
in. France , says : "Stage jewelry now 1,5 , a
regular manufacture , nuil , though many
actresses wear real diamonds , it need not
be said that the mimic stones arc more
effective. Sham furniture looks more
like furniture on the stage than the finest
that could bo ordered. It would take _ too
long to expound this , but in illustration it
may be said that at tlio Theatre Francois
there is a properly clock for a boudoir ,
eleganllv painted and made of papier
macho "which cost 500 francs or GOO
francs. "
A law enacted in Denmark compels
all makers and sellers of aduiturated ,
imitation and bogus buttnr to nack it in
elliptical tubs , conspicuously marked
"margarine. " and punishes infractions
of the law by a line of from 200 to 2,000
kiouos ( $51 to ? 510) ) . The enactment
was forced by the agricultural clement of
the country , despite the opposition by
the bogus butter people.
Of tlio thirty-three and a fifth miles of
the new Croton tunnel , eight and a half
miles have been opened , and the present
weekly rate of advance is one-third of a
mile. Over 400 men are atvorkt and
RO.OOO pounds of explosives are consumed
weekly ; Probably 000,000 pounds of explosives -
plosives will have been consumed in the
entire work of shattering 00,000,000 , , cubic
feet of rock" .
The entire ofllux through the sewers of
Paris is ascertained to amount , on an
average , to 003,000 , cubic metres a dav ,
or about 00,000,000 gallons , this being al

amount of water furnished by the aque
duct ; and the rainfall , thu other quarter
being carried oil' by evaporation , absorp

A young Swede makes a living in Bos

thu size of the dog , gives the pots thor

the thought of a well known charitable
woman. She wanted to help the young

City Council Meetings.
Novcr more , probably , will the inoli-
lluous and excited voices of Messrs.
Thrano , Lccder , Furay and Belnn bo
heard in the council chamber. Their
race is run. Their law-making days are
o'er , and with sad hearts and subdued
feelings they took thoir'seftta last night
in the last , very last mooting of the old
city council. A largo number of specta
tors assembled to see the death If such
it may bo called of this body , and if
they expected a tumultuous one , they
were doomed lo disappointment , for ,
with a few gasping slgha , they blow out
the candle and vanished. Among those
present wore Mayor Boyd , City Attorney
Council , Marshal Cummlups , Messrs.
Broach , Gray , McShanc , Crelgh-
ton , Riley , Young and all the
newly elected members of the council.
Following is the city councll-as , they
answered to the roll call :

Mr. Carl C. Tliram took his downfall
gracefully , his face having a pleasant ,
kindly look , and his conversation beiuc ;
as llucnt and interesting as over. Mr.
Behm acted as thoueh ho had read the
maxim , "What must be , must be ; " but
still his eye emitted a dangerous sort of a
look when he glanced toward Mr. Leo.
Mr. Lecdor's disappointment was prob
ably made up by the thought that Mr.
Furay was also compelled to step down
and out. Mr. Furay's countenance
looked benevolent and friendly. It
showed that his feelings were not very
badly wrought up , and ho seemed to
think the better plan to forgive and for
get. All of them , however , felt that they
had lost a little of their power , but
should remember that the "rising geaera-
tion" must have a chance.
Lobbying was going on with vigor , and
expressions of belief in the truthfulness
and capability of the new members were
heard. The old council received many
commendations for their course , and
hardly a murmur was heard against
them. The new members present list
ened in wrapt attention to the proceed
ings , although few , and took in with
avidity all the "pointers" possible to be
picked up. The business of the meeting
was very light , the members secminji to
wish to finish up as speedily as possible.
A resolution was introduced by Mr.
Furay by unanimous consent of thu
counsel. It was a resolution of thanks
to the president , Mr. liechcl , for the
cfllcicnt manner in which lie has presided
over the meetings of the council.
Mr. Furay spoke as follows : "As I
shall soon pass out , and my gentle
voice will not bo heard again , I wish to
say that our thanks are duo to Mr. Bechel
for the manner in which ho has presided
over our meetings. In the lights of mem
bers and I was generally "at homo"
while they wore going on he has pre
sided with justice and pleasure. I esteem
him for the excellent judgment ho has
shown in rulings rulings that have given
this council thu dignity w/iich / it has at
tained. I am passing away-my ; sword
will soon be turned into a plowshare or
horse-shoo or something else , and I do
not regret a single , , measure that has
come up in the council. To no one are
the ncoplu more indebted than tq Mr.
Bcclicl for the good we have done. CHd
will bo here next year to uass along the
good work he has dono. The conductdq- (
portmout. etc. , of the president is 9110 Of
things indelibly iniprintoriidhfniy heart. "
Mr. Bchin spoke , eulogizing other
chairmen of the council ; "but , " sajd ho ,
"I remember that many a time wo had to
appeal from their decisions , but wo never
have had to from Mr. Beohol'sr1 Hjj has
been kind to mo in every mannerand I
thank him personally for the assidtancc
he has given mo. "
Mr. Leeder then took the floor. "My
friends , " ho said , "wish me. .Lo 'say a
fuw words before I pass in my checks.
For the good work.that I have , dojid for
my constituents , the records will shqw.
But one thing I point to with pride is
that I am the every 'liibor
measure passed by this council since I
have held a scat in ttr.Twas sent herd !
by the laboring classes back to ( them
will I go. I defy any ono-to gay anything
to the contrary. My friend fro. 1)1 ) - the ;
Sixth ( Furay ) and myself , have had
bovoral tilts , and I will say right here
that 1 don't retract anything , and if any
one wishes to have any explanations
from mo they can incut mo on the public
highway. There was a plan made out in
the last primaries that some should got
that , and some the other , and I got left.
My successor is a young man , and
capable , and may do uotter than I have.
Politically , I have achieved success. "I
don't have any hard feeling "toward any
gentleman , As I said bclore , if anyone
1ms anything to say to mo , now that the
shackles of the council are oil' , I want
them to say it. Mr. Bechel has boon a
good and elliciont president , andlboliovo
lias done his full duty. "
Mr , Leo eulogized the out-going mem
bers , saying that although many wordy
spats hud passed , it has been a busy
council. He also spoke of Mr , Bcclicl in
the highest terms of commendation.
Mr. Bcclicl said ho felt deeply the , testimonial
menial of respect. "If in my duties I
have done right it is for you to decide.
[ 'You have ! You have ! ' spoke up several
of the members. ] In going I wish you
all a hearty God-snood. "
Resolutions of thanks were ulso passed
as to the city clerk and his assistant.
A motion was then passed to adjourn
without day.
"Hero wo go go go , " said Mr. Furay ,
as ho took his hat ami coat and left his
There wore many expressions of regret
among the councilman , from the mem
bers who stay , to those going , and many
petty feuds were amicably settled be
tween them.
The now council was called to order by
City Clerk J. B. Southard. The roll was
called , and the now members ot the coun
cil were sworn in , and took their seats.
Messrs. Bechol and Uoodric'h wore
nominated to servo as president of the
board during the ensuing year. A ballot

The rtov. Mr. nitlcr's "Work of Evan-
Kclizntloii Meeting With Success.
The people were lute in assembling at
the exposition building last night , and
it was after 8 o'clock when the services
began. The audience was composed
largely of women , in whom the religious
sentiment seems to bo most strongly de
veloped. The ushers wore resplendent in
bright yellow badges and had all they
could attend to iu seating the crowd that
came surging in. The music was not as
good as on previous evenings , as there
was a woeful lack of male voices
to sound out the harmony. The
people , however , sang with spirit
and earnestness. During the singing
people continued to come in , and when
the Kev. Mr. SUankopened the meeting
with a fervent' prayer there were about
1,203 in the hulL , " ) The opening prnyor
was listened toiM'UU deep attention , and
met with hearty responses in the way of
nmcns. - " '
The Rev. Mr. 'M"oKaig announced that
Mr. Bitter wottld 'deliver ' his "private
talks" Sunday afternoon. The lecture
was written exp usiycly for young mon.
"Our God is ( Marching On"was then
sung to the air ofiltbo famous old war
song , and. stioeecde'd in stirring up the
audience to sncU'an'extont ' that the ush
ers who had Upun "flaking a tour ot the

baskets heavy-vrith gold and silver coins.
Together witht tliec money the baskets
contained slip3jof.paper upon which a
number of those present had written re
quests for the prayers-of good people for
their friends. " .Pray for my papa , " wrote
a little girl iri large scrawling letters
" for " asked mother
"Pray two boys , a
Requests for prayers for various relatives
and friends were also read , and then the
real work of the evening the Rovi Mr.
Biller's address begun.
His exhortation was prefaced by a few
minutes of silent prayer. "Think on
these things , " moaning all the things that
pertain to the higher nature
of man , was the subject upon which
ho spoke. " 1 know many people
think a revival meeting is a more surface
agitation , and speak of it in a sneering
way. " said ho "Wliona people begin to
think of God , eternity and ttic welfare of
the human soul it is a solemn tiling and _
is not surface agitation. It isn't wildfire -
fire , it isn't enthusiasm , it's the spirit of
God settling down over the congrega
tion. "
In speaking of the success of the re
vival , ho said that the spirit of God was the
topic of conversation on the streets and
in the street cars. Mon were beginning
to think. His idea of agnostics and
skeptics was to send thorn among the
Hottentots and advisothcm to leave their
mother country who made them all they
wore , and whom they requited by a

"Tho policy of the devil"hct continued ,
"is thoughtlessness. When God is striv
ing with people the evil one steps in and
says , away with all this saying , thought
lessness is my kingdom. Over all the
haunts of vice thoughtlessness is written
in blazoned letters. In those places of
'sin where the women appear to bo angels
of light , but whoso foot take hold on hull ,
all is as thoughtless as hell wants it to bo.
At this point a jeering voice was hoard
from the outside yelling out , "Hi there ,
take a beer1'
"Havu you policemen in this city ? "
asked the speaker quiotly.
"Yes , " rejoined Mr. McICaig , "but
mover mind , goon. "
The interruption made no break in llio-
.speaker's tram of thought , and ho con
tinued to relate in a graphic and eloquent
way the depths of degradation to which
mon were brought by more thoughtless
ness.Tho evangelist concluded his powerful
address by an eloquent appeal to his
auditors to prepare themselves for death
and their future , for they "know not
what a day may briiig" forth. "

The Methodist iof Genoa dedicated
their new church edillco on Sunday last.
Bishop \V. X. Wiml3 delivered a very im
pressive sermon in the morning , which
was followed , in the evening , by a very
able sermon from Rev. Dr. Pillabury , of
Fullerton , A special train was run from
Cedar Uapids and Fullerton to accommo
date the people wishing to attend the ded
ication. About $900 was pledged , which
places the church in very comfortable
circumstances. The edilico is a credit to
the town , and ono that the Methodists
may bo proud of. Its audience room is
1)3x55 ) feet , with a class room 0x18 feet ,
and n side tower 10 foot square and 05
feet in height , The interior is neatly
liiiished , thu seats being of polished ash ,
The big snowstorm in Maine packed
the principal streets in Dixmont with a
drift fifteen feet high , and so-solid that
horses could bo driven over it. The
young men and boyo of the village tun
nelled this drift , and , after two days'
work , made a tunnel 175 feet long , 7 foot
high , and 8 feet wide , through which
teams were driven for several day's.
t'otcr Vnnco ChnrRcd with Inhuman
Cruelty to Ills Wife.
In llio back room of a small frnmo
house on Fourteenth street between Wil
liams and Hinkory a woman named Mrs.
Vance is lying in agony. The neighbor
hood is considerably excited over her
condition , but no two people can bo
found whoso views arc the same. Yes-
terdny a s\vcdo plasterer came into the
coroner's oflico and made the statement
that Vance , the woman's husband , had
kicked her in the .stomach , and that from
the results of the blow she gave prcma-
turo birth to n baby , which cited
before seeing the light of clay.
The coroner anil Ollicor Turnbull
at once wont to the house nnd made an
investigation of the facts in the case.
Vance domes that ho over struck his wife
and claims that a meddling woman , who
has spite against him , is the cause of thu
whole transaction. Mrs. Vance states
that her husband kicked her in the back
but not hard enough to produce any
serious results. It seems that last Thurs
day Vance came homo nnd found the
doors to his liouso house locked. His
wife refused to admit him nnd when ho
did effect an entrance , the neighbors
state a quarrel ensued. Mrs.
Vance afterwards came out of her
liouso and told a woman living next
door that her husband had kicked her in
the breast. She then wont to bed nnd
has not risen since , Upon her arms are
largo black wolts.which look like bruises ,
but which nro claimed to bo caused by
hemorrhage of the Ilesh. The doctor
states that n6 other marks are visible
upon her person. The woman is said to
bo a hard drinker and a great many people
ple blame her for the trouble.
Rail Notes.
The rumors of a strike on the Union
P.icilio still continue to iloat through the
air , but still the walk out cometh not. It
is believed by those in a position to know
that , there is nothing in the rumors.
"rou may take my word for it , " said n
prominent K. of L. man to a reporter yes
terday , "that there will be no strike on
the Union Pacific. All these ru
mors arc the merest nonsono.
The men have nothing to strike for. To
be sure , they , have had grievances , but
then have presented them to the olhcials
and have been met half way and treated
in a square , manly stylo. It would bo
foolish , consequently , for the Union Pa
cific men to strike. Thomas Ncnsham ,
the district master workman at Denver ,
is a cpol-hpaclod man and ho will do ev
erything in the future , as he Las in the
past , to avert a strike. "
C. K. Wilbor , traveling agent of the
Union Paeilic railway , and ono of the
most popular officers 01 the saekliammor
brigade , is in the city for a day.
F. Milligan , general passenger and
freight agent of the St. Joseph & Grand
Island railroad , is in the city.
There is no change in the passenger
situation , and from present prospects
there is but little hope of the diflieulties
between the warring roadsboing adjusted
in the near future.
W. II. Firth , general agent of the Bur
lington road with headquarters in Kan
sas City , is in Omaha.
The latest railroad on paper , the Oma
ha & Southern , is causing considerable
discussion in local circles. The scheme ,
which will at once bo proceeded with ,
moans a good deal for Omaha , and
nothing more nor loss than an extension
of the Vandalia to this city. 1 1 is under
stood that the representatives of that
road will shortly submit a proposition to
this city which contemplates the exten
sion of tlio line into northwestern Ne
braska. The routu of the road is to be
from Omaha to a point on the south line
of the state in Jefferson county , running
through the counties of Douglas , Sarpy ,
Uass , Otoo , Johnson , Lancaster Gage
and Jefferson. The capital stock is
i2,000,000. ? This extension will give
Omaha a short line of seventy miles to
Beatrice. _
Interesting Lecture.
Dr. Everett W. Fish delivered the second
end of his course of lectures at Unity
church last evening. It was an analysis
of aucipnt records , cxtcmting into the
glyphs , and into the barbaric religious
formalisms , to show the ultimate religion
of all races , religions and 'cults to
Noaclnan theism. Such an investigation
demands a wide philological acquaint
ance , find a varied scholarship. 'llio fact
that the doctor talked with unusual
rapidity , even at the sacrifice of clearness
, a'tctimc > , ; using no manuscript or notes ,
and also 'that he was unquestionably com
pelled , .to select from more facts at dis-
ppsal than the hour and thirty minutes
would permit him to use , gave evidence
that thl ) lecturer lias devoted a life-time
in these fields of study. Soi 'o of his
statements arc not a little startling as
that the most abject of the human race
in Polynesia and Australja ( as the Fijians
and Australian blacks ) still continue their
death festivals on the sidereal date of the
flood , as'give'n by the culmination of the
P.lciados ( in Taurus ) . The most import
ant deduction , however , is that all animal
and .star worship is derived from this
sidereal date Of tlio Hood Apis , the bull.
and the God Thor ( ) being the original
thprcof. The fact that the primitive
No'uhs , as Monos , Minns. Manes , Menu ,
Mann , Nau.JKo , Maul , Bulu , Bulo , and
Uulotin , weregiyphcd by the bull and the
-warcrpotr was an interesting develop
ment. To-night Dr. Fish lectures upon
the "Origin of Man" from a geological
btamlpoint. The doctor is a prominent
representative of the "catastrophic"
Onuihit Glee Club. "

I UK' a decrease In the visible supply , accord-
hip to the ofllclal llguios , of over 1,000,000
bushels. The market , however , was not
without strength. At the opening , prices
wcio quite linn at nn nitvanco of la or so
over Monday's latest quotations. Tills came
from the public cables reporting an mlvanco
of ! ? d for wheat on cargoes off the coast. Hut
the advance could not bo explained In any
way and failed to meet with general belief.
For a time this , with local buying , that always
roinos out In response to higher cables , kept
the market around the opening figure. There
were few shorts to take the vast quantities
ottered and the later cables came tit weak nnd
dcpiosscd. This , oven In splto of the state

Induced May wheat to settle bank to 74Jfc ,
but It went there very quietly and during
the sagging process no partlcularattcmpt wan

orders were secured , which loft the control
of the market largely , If not entirely , In the
hands of the local crowd. Hut they saw so
llttlei In the wheat market from a spcculatlva

remain out than to enter It. llccoverles and
