Losnov , Dec. 7. At the liberal union con
ference to-day , Maiqtils Hartlnglon , chair
man , among the distinguished persons pres
ent wi-ie llarls DeibynndNorthbiook , Baron
KotliBchlld , ( icorge J. ( ios"hen , ex-Altorncy
( icncral James and numerous noblemen.
Letters of regtet weieiead from Loid J'ennj-
son , tbo Dnko of Arcyle and John Blight.
John Blight said : "I do not attend because 1
might say something wlilch would glvo pain.
1 fear to speak , 01 even wille lespcctlng
( Hailstone's course which astonishes and
gically pains me , c pi'dall } his speech to
the Irish deputation which lately called upon
him. It seems ( iladstono hasgonoso tat in
ills w long course there is no liopo of bis 10-
turn. I dcploio and condemn Hitch action ,
and If present , might say something which
would widen tliu bicacli. ( iladslonc's lilsh
allies ate ililing mattcis to extiennty and
jet no word comes ftomPainelloi ( Sladstone
to lestraln them. "
Chamberlain vviote : "There Is no hope
of leiinitlng tiio libeial party unless dlad-
stono's scbemoof li ish government is aban
doned. "
Lord Hartlngton , In his address to the con
vention , fald the policy wlilch Gladstone
advocated was directly opnoscd to the opin
ions of the entlte liberal patty , and even all
tlm principals under him. Tlio liberal union
ists were as line exponents of llbetal princi
ples as were tlio majority who tollowed
Gladstone , and in maintaining the suprem
acy of the imperial parliament the better
icpreseutatlvo ot thostt principles. Their
association vvas formed , ' Loid lliutlngton
continued , to pteservo the elntacter ot its
members as unionist libciaK and by
orginl/illon they achieved success which
would have been Impracticable otherwise
and had only been achieved altei organi7a-
tlon by tlio tot tuition of an alliance with Iho
consenatives. blcges would be laid lo Glad-
ston's position which had not been taken bv
Htorm , and tlio liberal unionists would have to
vvoik until they wo-ro dele tted or obtUned a
moio decisive victoij. ' 1 lie time had not set
ariivod when a line of action in pitii.imont
( ould he laid down. 'Iho liberal unionist' )
must depend foi llieii line of patliamentary
policy upon tlio action ol tlio government.
Ghdstouo , ftii William Vcmon Haicourt
and John Mm Icy based tlieii Bpceches upon
granllng Irelanilexecntlvo govi'riiment , but
Ignored all the arguments ot the llbcial union
ists against such a jiolley. ( iladstone assumed
that the goveniineiit was rompetlnc with
liiiu In his sohenio ioi Ireland , but tlio gov
ernment was opposed to iinj tiling ol tlio
kind. 'Iho temoval of the present govern
ment would icsiill In the election of Glad
stone , who would settle tbo lush question in
bis own way. We must nlwavs ii'inombei
this when questions arise which might result
In displacing tlio government , 'liio liberal
unionists are Inteiested In sustaining the
government. Questions hid arisen which
weio conservative of tlio common iuteiest
and would foieo them to adopt some reform
necessary to maintain tlio union between
the government and thollber.il unionists.
Kcfcirlni : to tlio situation In Ireland , Lord
Hartington said the piesent tale agitation
was not spontaneous. It had been created
Joi a political purpose. 11 speeches like John
Dilliou's weio not checked , the result must
bo the subveislon of every principle ot
liberty in Ireland. "Wo are told , ' said the
speakei , "that the P.nglislidemocicy will not
stand these evictions , but I think llio Kng-
lish demociacv will ask who is icsponsible
for them. " "Gladstone. " added Loid llart-
Inuton , "may not bo able to control John
Dillon , but Gladstone can speak ono word
which will difisolvo llio alliance between the
agitatoisof John Dillon's class and the lib-
finl pnly. 'Iho English people are awaiting
that vvonl , which , if delajed , will sotlously
endanger tlie good name of llio llbcial paitv.

1IIK CItlME.
The crlmo for which Leo bliellenbcrirer has
been convicted was most heinous , being ono
of tbo foulest ever committed in this state.
Mazglo Shelleubeigcr , the victim , was the
oloven-j cat-old diughter of tlie murderer.
The scene of the crime vv as at Sliellenbercers
farm , about sl\ miles from Nebr.i'ln City.
The lamily consisted ol Shellenbeiger , his
wlfo and two childien , Jon and
Maggie. 'Ilie woman , however , wasShellen-
berger's second wife and stepmother to the
children , and her trcitment ot them , espe
cially the liltlo girl , was geueiallj icportcd
lo bo most abusive. The father seemed to
ofierno objection to Ins wife's tieatment of
tbo children , and home was made such u boll
for the little ones that sov eral times tliev lelt
and sought shelter at the neighbors' . " Ono
day. accoidlmrto the evidence utven at fie
trial bj the little gill's brothei , Joe , Maggie
was ordered by Mis. bhellenbeiger lo SiCinb
the cellat stairs. At tlio time tiio father
claimed to bo at a neiehboi's , and reluming
homo stalled to entet the cellar. As ho
stopped on the stalls , howevei. ho boint a
strange noise and called for n , light. "When
bis wile biought It be discovoicd Maggie
lying on the lloor with foni horrible gashes
In liet throat and rt butcher knlfo Ijlng by
her side. All the indicitions wete tint she
Imd been caught fiom behind and the twiblo
deed accomplished before the little ono was
nvvaro of danger , bhcllcnbeiger said that
Maggie was btill living when ho found her ,
and ho carried her up stairs and sent word to
the neighbors. Tito suspicion at once pre
vailed that Majglo hid been murdered
by her inliumiu pitonls and the coroner
was immediately notified , and Mi.andMis.
Shcilcnbergor weto placed nndei atiest.
Both claimed that Maggie had become despondent
pendent and committed suicide , but this was
proved entirely untenable bv tbo ciiciim-
btances surrounding the killing.
