Cable Special to the UKK.j-Tho news of
Ptineo Alexander's kidnapping tell hero like

had already had tlm secret locked in Ills
bosom for forty-eight hours. To him the
news wts to this extent a surprise , that
though ho was aware that Prince Alexander's
days of rule were intended to ho numbered ,
he did not know the methods which would
bo resorted to In securing his retirement. It
Is believed hen ; that the means employed
were too revolutionary to meet JJIsmarck's
approval , but nothing pleads so eloquently
for pardon as a fait accompli. Hut If so soon
done , for why begun ? You will have from

striking In a village where every ono sports
the Tjrolc.bo low-ciowneil hat and feather. Ho
was accompanied by Ins secretary , his ser

alter. Authoritative morning dispatches
state Hint I'rinco Alexander and his brother ,
Frances Joseph of liatteiiburg , reached tlie
Polish frontier station Podwolc/.yska ycster-
ilav shortly after 10. Their highnesses
were accompanied as far as the
rontier by the deputy governor of
Klschoneff , Mavor Ogllo , of Woloczyoskand
a detective. The Ihisslan ofllclals were cool
in their demeanor toward tlio prince , and re
fused to allow him the use of n saloon car on
the Russian line. As soon as he crossed the
frontier , he met with
r.VKnv I'OSSIIIM : ATTENTION
and a saloon car was placed at his disposal.
He appeared much depressed and had no
luggage whatsoever , not even a change of
clothes , for those who kidnapped him
icarccly cnvo him time to dress himself , and
he was compelled , on arriving at Lcmburg ,
to buy clean linen and other Immediate nec
essities. As noon as the brother of the
prince arrived they took a bath , immediately

According to telegrams from Bucharest and
Jassy an extensive concentration of Kussian
troops Is going on in Bessarabia. Pontoon
bridges are also being constructed for the sup
posed iiuposo of crossiim the Danube. Sus
picious movements of the Black sea fleet are
also reported. It is evident up to the
present date that the action of
Itussla , despite the denials given by the
c/ar's advisors , has led to the following re
sults : It has consolidated the loyalty and
devotion of the Bulgarians and Itoumelians
for I'rinco Alexander ; It has estranged more
than ever the Bulgarians from
the Russians ; it has reconciled the
Servians with the Bulgarians ; it has drawn
moro closely the bonds uniting the Bul
garians and the Turks , assimilat
ing and Identifying their interests
against Kussian aggression ; It has
popularized the cause of Bulgarian Indo
peudence In Germany , In Austria , Hungary
and Italy ; it has justified the action taken by
Great Britain in the question slncethorising

as to the probabilities of his return , buttho

ACCOUNT Olf HIS RTirWAUDSlftP.
Gladstone Iteclti.-s His KtroftH for
Dome lliilc In Irolnnd.
LONDON , Autjmt 27. Mr. Gladstone' . ' ,
brockmo on the Irish question was published
to-day. It contains Jlfty-clglit jwsia , At the
cutset Mr. Gladstone compaics it with the
apology ho wrote on his change of altitude
regaullng the Irish church. "But , " ho con
tinued , "in the presentcasa 1 have n change
to indicate , but have only to point out the
mode In which my language and con
duct were governed by uniformity of princi
ple. 1 have simply followed the various
stages by which the great questions of
autonomy for Ireland has been broueut to
the stage of Tightness for practical leglsla-
Ion. " The brochure launder two heads--tirst ,
The History of tlie Idea. " in which Glad-
tone summarizes tin- following conditions
intler which alone , in his view , it would be
come possible : 1. The abandon-
nent ot hope that parliament would
serve as n possible leelslatlvo
nstiuinent for Ireland. 2. Tlio unequivocal
and constitutional demand of the Irish mom-
icrs. ; J , The possibility of dealing with
Scotland In a simlliar way of circumstances
) f equal and equally clnar desire.
Gladstone then parses on to defend him
self from the charge of havliie sprung
ho home rule nirnsmo upon his friends. Ho
Ionics that it Is thu duty ot the minister to
uako known , even to Ills colleagues , evcrv
dca forming In his mind , which would tend
o contuse and retard , Instead of aiding
mslnos * . He continues ; "What istruols
that 1 have not publicly and In prlncl-
ilo condemned It , and also that 1
nave mentally considered it , but 1 have
neither adopted nor rojecU'il It , and for thu
very simple reason that It was not prepared
for adoption or rejection. " Gladstone then
goes on to point out that , during all the
many years of his public life , tlm alternatives
were u-peal on tlio ono hand and on the
other the relief of Ireland from
grievances. It was not possible , ho
said , at that time to prognosticate how , In n
short time , parliament" would stumble ami
ilmoM writhe under the constantly acciuuu-
latlng burdens , or to pronounce that U would
eventually prove Incapable of meeting the
wants of Ireland.
It was early In 1S71 , Gladstone
says , that ho took the lirst step
lowards placing the controversy on
Its true b.isls. He opposed Mr. Butt's scheme
because the alternative had not been ex
hausted , but even as that time , he did not
close the doors utrainst the recognition of tlio
question in a different state of things , for In
stead of denouncing home ruin as de
structive of the unity of the
empire lu the following words he accepted
the assurance given to the contrary : "Let
me do the promoters of this movement the
fullest justice , always speaking under the
conviction , as they most emphatically de
clare and as 1 fully believe them , that the
union of these kingdoms utjder her
majesty Is to be maintained , but
that parliament must he broken up. "
Similarly In 1-S7-1 Gladstone accepted , with
out ( lualllication , the nrlncinlo that home
rule had no necessary connection with sepa
ration. When Mr. Shaw succeeded to tlie
home rule leadership , in 18SO , Gladstone
hailed Ins speech as showing evidence of a
disposition to respect the functions of the
house of commons and the spirit of the consti
tution. In ISS , ' , at Guild hall , he announced
he would hall with satisfaction and delight
any measure of local government for Ire
land. Coming to the electoral campaign of
1SS5 Gladstone says ids great object was to
do nothing towards t'io ' prosecution oftho
question by the lories , but fo use
his best effort to impress the
public mind with thu Importance
and the uruini : of the question. It wius In
this spirit ids Midlothian address was writ
ten. The Irish question was severed from
the general subject of local government.
It was pointed out that It would probablr
throw into the shade all other important
measures , which were ripe. Once ripe the
time for action had come. Just us
if It had been a cornfield wo were not
to wait until It was over-ripe. The healing
of Inveterate sores would become more diffi
cult the growth of buddlnir hopes more
liable to bo checked and paralyzed by tlio
frost of politics. Kor England , In her soft
armchair , all security , considerations with
adjournments interposed , as it had been
usual , so also would it have been comfortable.
But for Ireland , in her leaky cabin , it was of
consequence toicep out tlio weather.
In the second poition ol' the pamphlet , the
"Lesions of tlie Kleetions. " Gladstone
begins by drawing certain lessons trom
the election as they affect mlltlcal par
lies. In Ihe course of his calculations he
estlmalcslhe loss ol the liberal party from
thu unionist pchlsm nt two-sevenths of' the
whole , commanding , ho says live-sixths of
the liberal peer. " , but not more than one-
twentieth of the liberal workintimeii. Ho
points out tint even now the lories have
failed to sectiro an absolute majority
and draws the final conclusions that at the
lirst moment liberalism is again nulled it
must become pu'domlnnnt. Ho sees a
further ground for hope In the abatement al
ready taken place in the tory opposition ,
Mr. Gladstone then goes on to point out
that the unionists are already pledged to an
Immediate and largo concession. Many of
them are on such n scale that they give to
their idea the name of homo rule , declaring
themselves favorable to its principles and only
opposed to the awkward and perverse man
ner in which it was handled by the late
administration. " "Look at the question , "
Gladstone continues , "which way wo will ,
the cause of Irish soif government lives and
moves and can hardly fall to receive moro
life , more propulsion trom the hands of tho.se.
who have been its successful
opponents in 0110 of Its particular
forms. " Gladstone points out that In the
ease of England what o have really is not
a retu.sal but only a slower acknowledge
ment. The elfect ol this upon Ireland he de
scribes as follows : "Ireland knows what She
never has Known before ; that even , under
her defeat , the deep riJt of divis
ion runs through nil Iho E-igllsh
nation In her favor. Under these happier
circumstances what is there , Gladstone asks.
In separation that would tend to make It
advantageous to Ireland ? As an Island with
many hundred miles of coast , with a
weak marine and a people more
military than nautical , u smalt population
and limited resources , why should she expose
herself to the risks of an Invasion and cer
tainty of enormous cost for defense , rather
than remain under Iho shield of tlio greatest
maritime power in the world. " Gladstone
acknowledges that the most power
ful agent In brlngiii' ; about thu
defeat of the government was the aver
sion to the laud bill. He hopes that
the pat tnorshlp between the enemies of homo
rule and Iho enemies of Ihe land bill , which
bionght about this result , may now bo dls-
solved. The enemies of home rule have even
been the keenest promoters of land puichaso
In the Interest of Iho Irish land-
hints , and the enemies of thu land pur
chase bill will now have to use all
vigilance for the purpose ol preventing the
adoption of Iho schemes of hind purchase on
principles very different Irom Iho recent bill.
Gladstone does not go beyond the expression
of undoubted belief that a measure of self-
government , not less extensive than than the
proposal ot lsb < ) , will bo ultimately carried.
IN TUB COMMONS.
I'urnoU'a Amendment Hojouted Se.v-
ton Makes n Strong Speech ,
LONDON , August 27. In the commons lo-
dav Lord Randolph Churchill unvu notice
that the government would propose tlio aboli
tion of the secret service tund , which amounts
to JL'IO.CO'J yearly.
Mr. Sexton was loudly cheered when lw
arose lo speak. ' Ho scathingly criticised
Chamberlain's speech last night regarding
Parnell's amendment , and said ho regarded
Chamberlain as a political mlsdocr , only re
quiring to bo given sutllclent material to
execute the end of public justice upon him
self , Although the queen'b xpc < > cli contained
no allusion to land purchase , Mr. Sexton
challengedLoid Randolph Churchill to deny
that land pmclnwo formed a part of the gov-
ernn.i'iit schomc. The British government
bi-lng pattly answerable for the wrong doing
of Irish landlords , Gladstone had made the
landlords thu 1110.4 liberal ollors thfay would
over receive. When that olfcr was spurned
ar.d used to brills illsciedit upon tlm author ,
there Mas no obligation In honor to rouuw It.
Gladstone's land purchase scheme was HI-
cured by overv penny of thu public revmmo
of Ireland. True union would have resulted
Irom the adoption of that policy , and no.iin-
natiir.il combination of intiigulni ! politicians
could long d"lay that union , "ho appoint
ing of General Duller would not nrvmoto
Mich union , but would give Ireland ttio'char-
ni'tcrot a lorclirn country. The proposed
commissions would bo productive ot no ben-
eit ! ai'i only delay dealings with pressing
questions. In conclusion , Sexton said the
Pnnii'lilk's wo'iId counsel Irishmen not to
ho intimidated by any fear of
combinations. They would do everything
possible in lairnessand justness | o promote
peace , but would not make themselves Irult-
or.i to 11 eland by asking th'o people during
Ihe coming winter to pauporl/.e themselves
j la o'derio luiiiish arguments to their own
ruin. [ Chcers.j Soxlon spoke nearly three

FHEMOXT , Xeb. , August 27. [ Special Tel
egram to the Br.i : . ] To-day closed tlio lire-
men's state toiirnniiinnt. It was u big day Tor
Fremont and a tremendous crowd was In I ho
pity. The chlct Interest of the week centered
In to-day's races. The llrst llilnc of Interest
was Iho exhibition of tlio water works at 10
o'clock , which was novel to many citizens
who had never seen such proceedings. Two
lines of hose was uureoled and attached to
hydrants , the water turned on and thu Tri
bune building was drenched for hull' nn hour.
At llrst only the reservoir pressure was used ,
but when direct pressure from the engine
was turned on It threw water In line shape ,
and was considered very satlsfaetory by the
spectators. This was peculiarly Interesting ,
because our water works are not yet accepted
by the city council.
In the afternoon the people began gatherIng -
Ing at the fair grounds early , and when the
races opened the attendance was variously
estimated at from -J.OOO to 7,000 , much larger
than any previous day. First was the state
race for hook and ladder companies First
prize , 5100 and belt ; second prize , 3100 ; third
prize , 350. There were four entries the
Frontiers of Fremont , York , Kearney Pro-
teetlves mid Wahoo , running in the order
named. The Frontiers in ado the run in 4SJ5
seconds. The York team , which won second
money , then astonished the spectators with
the llnest hook mid ladder run ever made In
Nebraska In the phenomenal time ofJ5 sec
onds. Great cheering ensued , The Kearney
champions followed York. They made tliclr
usual rapid run , but the laddorman was un
fortunate In climbing. Time 17 B-n seconds.
Wahoo's time was4i % seconds.
The ladder-mini's contest followed the hook
and ladder races , tlio prize being a gold
badge and S10 to the best man , with thu lul-
IOWIIIK result : Phillip Sparks , Fremont , 0 >
seconds ; < ! eorgo Uhilcoteork , no time :
Charles Mott. Kearney. 0 seconds ; Fred
ilountford , Wahoo , 0 4-ft seconds.
The state lioso race was the big race of the
tournament and was looked forward to with
great interest. The timers for this nice were
Hackerberiwr , of Wood Hlver , Seeigler , of
York , Uardanlcr. ot Scrlbner ; Judges , Tern-
pleton , of Council Bluffs. UrecktiUeldt. of
Plattsmonth. The Dorscys , the champion
green team , ran first , but got the threads of
the coupling crossed and were allowed no
time. Bl-isell hose team , of Columbus , fol
lowed in 40 1-5 seconds. Tim Kearney Wide
Awake , no time. The three succeeding teams
were tiie best in thu state and the excitement
ran high. Tim Clelands , of Fremont , who
won the lirst prize on the lirst day , Hew down
the track In a mazuilicent run. When the
time was announced as 41 2-5 seconds
ends the cheering was deafening.
This was the best record over
made In the state and second best In Amer
ica , but there was a surprise. In store. The
1'aellicij , of ( Jrand Island , went next , and
sped down the course Hke race hones. Their
'Champions ' , of Lincoln ; but the time had
already been lowered below their reach.
Their time was 41 4-5. These three last races
were conceded to be the best ever witnessed
at any tournament. The Fit/.ijeralds have
hold first place two years , but took third this
The couplers contest followed. Coserovo
and Heed of Omaha were the only ones who
got the time of 4 % seconds.
To-night all the visiting liremen are enjov-
Ing the hospitality of the Fremont liru de
partment , who have spread an elaborate
feast at the skating rink at a cost of 4 03 or
SJiOO. The board of control also hold a meet
ing and divided the prizes. Among other
business they passed a resolution condemn
ing the report in the Omaha Ilepubllcan
which claimed the tournament u failure. On
the contrary It has been the most successful
ever held and everybody is much pleased.
The firemen are leaving to-night lor their
