" \Vo \ understand Mr.l'arnrll Intcmls to innki ?

States to assist the tenants \\lio may bo

IIEIIATK OX nVICTlOXI.
The eviction cases which ha\o resulted In
the Imprisonment of Father Kahey occupied
a larne poitlnn of tlm expired parliament In
the speeches i > y Messrs. Dillon , Sexton ,
Clancy and six other lilsh members. In
the course oC Dr. Tnimci's speech ho said :
"I was struck In the course of the dcb.ito
\\Ithtliomannerln which the BO\ eminent
allowed themselves to bo swayed by land-
lonlism. as they had always donu In the
treatment of Irish alTalrs.1'
The speaker then ordered him to be morn
Dr. Tanner then , refmliiK to the Imprison

would bo to stimulate the actions of the land
lords In the south of Ireland In evicting the
tenants , lluwas pioccedlng to lefertothc
question of rack-rentliiR evictions In the
south of Ireland when the speaker observed :
"The question of the landlords In the south
of Ireland has nothing to do with the Impris
onment of Father Fahcy , and as I have al
ready called the honorable member twice to
older , I must now ask htm to icsiime his
lint Tanner Immediately arose to continue
the discussion , when most of the coubciva-
tivcs loft the IIOIKO in a body.
The honorable member who was three
times called to order in the early part of his
speech , protested as a nationalist and a protestant -
testant against the impihonmcnt of Father
Kahey. The honoiablo member \\aspioceed-
Ing to refer to the subject of the giant fnt
the .Belfast Hojnl hospital , when the
speaker ruled that any general discussion
on that matter would be out of order , as the
approiumtlon bill contained nothing in refer
ence to the hospital. Dr. Tanner then ic-
sumcd his seat amid seine laughter , and im
mediately afterward ho toso and , putting on
his hat , exclaimed :
' ' 1 shall leave this house. 1 am dlsxustcd
with it. It Is evident that an Irish gcntlo
man cannot get a hearing In this house of
commons , " and walked toward the door.
The sneaker called out sternly , as did other
mcmbeis , "Order , older , " but Dr. Tnnuci
hurriedly parsed out of the house , turning ,
as ho did so , toward the conservative benches ,
gesticulating with the remark , "Yes , I say
As parliament will bo prorogued on Satur
day afternoon , no further notice will be
taken of the matter. It is clear that tin

At 1:80 : o'clock yesterday afternoon the
frame building at the transfer , known as
the Emigrant house , was discovered lobe
on lire by Superintendent Newton , of the
bridge and building department of the
Union 1'acilic road. Mr. Newton had left
the building about live minutes previous ,
and on returning for something he dis
covered the fire. He immedialely gave
the alarm , which , wns responded to by
Hie Union Pacific lire company and all
the hands employed at the freight trans
The Union Pacific hosts reel made good
time from the pump house to the lire ,
but before they could get a stream on
tlioiiames shot hiirlt in the nir and thu
whole north side of the building was in
flames. Three streams were bent into
the lire by the company's firemen , and
one of the van ! engines , which has a
pump sitlaclied , came over from Omaha
The blowing of the whistles nt the
transfer wore hoard by Charles Nichol
son , driver of No. 1 hose carl , and ho
wjlh four oilier men made for the lire
without waiting to receive tiic alarm.
No alarm was sent up town , and No. 1
was the only apparatus from life city that
wont to the lire , and they stretched ono
line of hose.
After the lire had been raging for some
time the walls fell in and the roof came
down with a crash. The building is a
total wreck , much to the joy of many to
whom it has been nu eyesore.
While the lire was still burning at the
west end of the pile , Captain J. J. Hath

work removing the debris and piling the
lumber , etc. , to the northeast of the
The origin of the lire is not known , but
it is generally supposed to have been
caused by a spark from a passing en

1150 : ! o'clock yesterday morning
the platform on tlm south' side of Iho
building was noticed by some ono to bo

Arc was from in under the building , it is
very probable that the lirst lire discovered
was not thoroughly extinguished , and
kept eating its way along under the
building until the whole structure was on
lire under the lloor.
The building was owned by Messrs.
Markel & Swobc , of Omaha , and was
erected in 1877 , having been brought
over from Omaha in sections in that year ,
and put up on the prairie about live hun
dred foot west of the passenger transfer
depot. It was , up to within the past
year , used as an "emigrant house" by
the emigrants who arrived from the east ,
it being then necessary for them to lay
over at the transfer nearly a day before
they could leave for Hie west via the
Union Pacific , but since the Union Pa
cific have been sending their emigrants
attuclied lo lirst-class passenger trains
leaving this city twice a day , the emi
grant house has boon closed and has
only been occupied by live laundry girls
and four men connected with the Union
Pacilic hotel at the depot , for sleeping
The loss falls mostly on the girls ,
whoso clothes were up stairs in their
rooms. One girl lost a now hut , hoven
dresses , a cloak , two pair of shoes anil
all her underwear , except what she
had on , while her room mate lost all she
had in the world , except ono dress , which
some one managed to get out of the lire.
The building was insured , but the
amount ot insurance and loss is not
known on this side of the river.
A Tinned Woodman ,
Ou last evening there was a regular
meeting of Ila/.ol camp , Modern Wood
men of America , of which the genial E.
E. Adams , of the DosUin boot and shoo
store , is a member and in which ho holds
the oilico of banker. The business of tli3
mooting was taken up in its regular
order , but for some reason unaccounta
ble to this oflicer it seemed as if there was
an unprecedented desire for despatch ot
business during the evening , and the
society completed all the business that
seemed to como before it at an earlier
hour than usual , when lion W. A. Myn-
stcr entertained the members present with
an interesting address on the subject of
natural History , during the close of which
he was inlcrruplcd by about ono hundred
ladies and gentlemen that came march
ing into the hall , laden with packages ,
consisting of tinware , etc , J. J.
Slowiirt was then called upon to
explain the cause of tno intrusion.
Ho responded in a nout spoecli
in behalf ot the many friends of Mr. and
Mrs. E. E , Adams , that this was the occa
sion of the celebration of the tenth mini-
versarv of their maniago , and closed by
extending to them a hearty welcome and
the best wltihos for their future , and that
each recurring anniversary may bo cele
brations of merry lives joined by a simi
larity of tastes and strengthened by the
true sympathy of souls ,
The recipients were taken by over
whelming surprise when Mr. Adams ex
plained that under the circumstances he
feared , thai if ho undertook to deliver an
address ho would como out "at the little
end of the horn , " which remark seemed
the moro appropriate from the fact that
included in the load of presents tliei'u
was a tin horn about six feet long , and
therefore applied to Neighbor Mynbter
to respond in Ins behalf.
This gentleman delivered the address
accepting the presents , and expressed
moro fully the appreciation of the pres
ence of so many.friends of the couple for
whom ho was sneaking. After congrat
ulations , the tables wore spread with such
delicacies that none but the peer of mod
ern woodman ladiea can provide. Uy
this time Hanker Adams had sullicicnlly
recovered himself that he added to the
"menu" a portion of the stock of a con-
fectiomuy store's candies and best llu-
vanas , after which all present joined in
social entertainment , consisting of music ,
card-playing and appropriate toasts until
the "wee btna1 " hours , wiion they ad
journed , rejoicing that "all was well"
with Mr. and Mrs. Adams and the mem
bers of lluzol camp.
