Tono.NTo , May 13. ( Special Telegram to
the BIK.I : It was not until at a very late
hour last night that the streets of Toronto
assumed their usual quietude. After mid-
nleht crowds of loyalists paraded the streets ,
Binglng , shouting and letting elf fire crackers.
Orangemen's banners and hastily Impro
vised Union Jacks mounted on walking
Btlcks and umbrella handles were being
nourished and waved in all directions , and
shouts of "Long Live Lansdowne , " "To
Hell Wi h O'Brien1 "God Save the Queen , "
etc. , filled tlio air. About 0 o'clock p. m. the
Young Britons' life and drum band marched
'down Yon go street , followed by a largo
crowd , and stopped In front of the Knssia
house , where O'Hi leu was being banqueted.
Here they exhibited their lung power lor
nbout half an hour In discoursing such af
fairs as the "Protestant Boy" and "Boyno
AVater , " but finding no ono took
any notice of them and that there
was not any likelihood of a row , they
marched down by the office ot the
Toronto Mall , which tnoy Kcrcnndcd and
cheered. Passing the News office , whlo.i Is
strongly In sympathy with O'Brien , the
crowd hooted anl : hissed and croaned , but
no violence ensued. Lansdowne managed
to have business out In the streets at this
late hour , and by a curious coincidence his
carriage and pair happened to bo driving
along VOIIKO street just as the mob was
marching down It. His driver was of course
Instantly recognized , the horses were un-
liilched and the carriage drawn by the crowd
to the government house , where the repre
sentative of loyalty stood baieheaded and
was Instantly surrounded by his noisy body
When O'Brlcn came down to breakfast
this morning he was fresh for another tiay.
1'iles of telegrams from New Yoik , Boston.
Atlanta , Ga. , and nmny other states , as well
as several piovlnces of the Dominion ,
awaited his perusal. Everywhere the news
of ycsteidav's disgraceful proceedings of
Landowno's sympathl/ers aio regarded as a
a victory for O'Hrien'H cause. Among the
telegrams ot congratulations was one from
Jauics Gordon Bennett , of Now York , who
expressed himself of the belief that the
crusade iiL'alnst Lansdowne has been Im
mensely strengthened by yesterday's work.
O'Hrlcn chatted ( rcely with your corre
spondent. "At last 1 hove biought Lor
Lansdownelaco to taco with mo , and I think
the verdict ot the woiId will bo that I have
not got tlio worst of It. "
TOHONTO , . May 18. ( Press. ] The In
curslon of O'Brien , the Irish agitator , seems
to have changed the whole face of Canadian
politics , and , It is thought , will have an Im
portant bearing on the future of parties and
politics In the Dominion. The Catholics ,
who spoke regretfully in regard to the Fo-
nlan Invasion of twenty years ago , don
speak so now , and the Orangemen , who
talked in a determined manner about
O'Brien's "invasion , " say. that If ho
attempted to speak hero axaln ho woul
probably pay the penalty with his life.
The Orangemen seem to teel that they have
committed a blunder , not In having attacked
the speakers and in disturbing the meeting ,
but In not having done so half well enough.
As cvldcoco that the Orangemen are not
solid against him O'Brien furnished for pub
lication to-day , with the remark , "Look at
that , boys , tlio most powerful Indictment
that has yet been drawn up against Lans-
ilownoand his rowdy defenders , and the
most complete vindication of my action In
the matter , " a letter from an Orangeman
sinned "Acosoii.'Mn which O'Brien Is upheld
and the action of Lansdowne denounced.
At half past 8 o'clock President J. A. Mil-
llean , of tlie local branch of the National
league , called at the hotel and asked O'Brien
to go out and have a walk , D. P. Cahlll ,
Dennis Kllbrlde , the evicted tenant , and J.
N. Wall , .special correspondent of the New
Yoik Tribune , were present and suggested
that It would not bo prudent to venture out ,
as darKnrss had fallen and a crowd
of about 200 rowdies had gath
ered around the hotel , hissing , hooting ana
groaning. O'Brien , however , persisted In
going. The crowd grew in numbers and
turbulenlo and surged to the very spot where
O'Brien and others wore standing. They
troaned and hissed Into O'Bilen's face anil
gave vent to such cries as "Away , traitor , "
"Down With the Dynamiter , " and "God
Save the Queen. " A riot seemed
Imminent , as the Oranuemcn were
armed with stout sticks , just as they
were at tlie meeting in Queen's Park ,
they came up to O'Brit-n as ho strode along
York street and jostled against him , making
several attempts to strike him on the head
with their sticks. Ho dodged the blows ,
however , and his friends rallied around him ,
but they were as one to fifty. Two police
men stood near , but made no effort to dis
perse the mob. As the party turned Into
Bay street Cahlll had his hat knocked off br
A stone. Now the Orangemen began their
real attack , for Bay street furnished a good
opportunity , being covered almost with
broken bricks and cobble stones. O'Bilcn
, ) Hd on a tall hat , which turnlshed a good tar-
ret. Wall was on his right and Kllbrlde and
Mulligan was on his left. "Look out ,
U'iirlen , " shouted Wall , "stouesaio coming :
Us Belfast over airaln. " "Oh , It's all
right , " replied O'Brien , "It would bo
better for Lansdowne If they lot
tis alone. " As ho spoke a volley of bricks
and stones came ( lying fiom the Orangemen ,
missing their heads hut knocking the olas-
terinf off the adjacent wall. Shouts of "To
liell with the pope , " "Kill the trailer , " so on
rose above the din. The O'Brien party were
still on the sidewalk and Orange
men thronging the sheets. D. T.
Kulley , a reporter of the New York
Sun , now rushed bchslid O'Brien and was
about to warn him , when a stone struck
O'Brien's hat and knocked It olf. " O'BiIen
stooped his Iii-ad , and Wall , uho was stand
ing by his side , lifted his head to IOOK In the
direction whence the missiles came , when a
huge stone struck him on the side of the
head and tumbled him heels ovei
head. Huwas can led Into a drug store ,
whern his wounds were dressed. O'Brien
attempted to take relugo In Sharp's laundry ,
and falling In that , rushed Into a bicycle
stora adjoining. A volley of stones shat
tered the windows and the mob burst Into
the store , jelling like demons , and showeird
missiles In the diieetlon inUilch O'Brlon
was. Some ladles and old women screamed
and fainted , \\lillo the mob tumbled
pell mell over the machinery , smashing them
one against Urn other In savace fury , and
amid cries of "Kill the traitors , " "Han
him , " "Lansdowno forever. " O'Brlon , however
over , was safely led away by an
officer and reached the hotel In
safety. Calilll was knocked down and
received two cuts and moro than
a score of other persons were Injured. The
mob now seemed satisfied.
Treasurer Tcofy , of the local branch of the
Icngup. sent the following telegram to lead'
crs In Mew Vork and Chlcaco :
"O'Brlon was mobbed In the streets of To
ronto by Orangemen. J. M. Wall , of tin
Now York Tribune , was seriously wounded. '
O'Bileu said to an Associated press repre
sentative : "Lansdowne has now done lih
worst. Ills policemen absolutely sur
rendered us to the mob , and had wo not taket
refuge In a bicycle shop we would havi
been killed. " O'Brien will speak Ir
Ottawa to-morrow and in Kluiston Friday
O'Brien spent the dav visiting several Oath
olio Institutions in this city. Ho declares to
night that ho will certainly go to St. Cathci
ines , and the more the Orangemen oppos
him the longer ho will stay In Canada.

Positive. Assurance That the I'lumed
K nluht Will Sntl In June.
Niw YOUK , May 18. [ Speclal Telegram
to the iiKiA : | New York special from Au
gusta , Me. , to the World says : Mr. Blalne ,
accompanied by Joe Marluy , Governor Bod-
well and Attorney General Orvlllo D. Baker ,
returned heroMonday afternoon after nearly
a week's trip to Bar Harbor and Mount De -
ert. Yesterday U was officially announced
for the first time that Blaluo has finally de
cided to go to Europe this summer. When
the party left hero last week Blalno said that
the report that ho had entragcd passage on a
steamer to sail fron New Yoik June I , was
untrue. Ho now , however , says Ids plans
have been made and that ho will go abroad
early next month. Ills decsllon
was made while at Bar Harbor with
tlio well known lieutenant who went with
him. The reason assigned by Blalno for his
tripacoss : the waters Is poor health and
much needed rest. This no doubt Is ono of
the reasons whv the Maine statesman \ylll
travel. Since his sickness In the \\est Blalno
has been thoroughly alarmed about his
health. At the time h was stricken ho lost
his courage and insisted that a physician bo
sent lor from St. Louis. Although lie recov
ered quickly and Colonel Coppinger and his
wife urged him to remain at the fort , Blalno
would not listen to them and hiuricd back to
his homo at Augusta. His physicians as
sured him there was no danger. Since his
return hero from tlio west Blalno has taken
care to say nothing publicly about his alarm
tor his health. His family physician
drops In to see him nearly every dayr The
doctor , who has talked with Blalno's physi
cian , and who sees him almost dally , says :
"Blalno Is the must trlghtcucd nn.u alive ,
but ho Is no moro sick than I am. What
signs of sickness can bo observed are attrib
uted by his irloiids to his constant worry.
Blaine's friends have been opposed to UIH
Idea ot going abroad , and have uried him to
remain at home. Thov point to the fact that
the next campaign is not far elf , and that
gieat political changes frequently occur In
si'ort Intervals of time. Besides this , the
Sherman boom Is still alive , and other mat
ters of Importance. MO- likely to como up
which may require his Immediate at
tention. Following Immediately upon the
announcement that the Maine statesman
is to cross the water comes the repoit that
several of his most trusted lieutenants aio to
follow him. That Joe Marly will accompany
Mr. Blaine is well settled , and It is said that
many lesser political lights will sail later.
Kx-Governor Hoble , who is an aspirant for a
United States senatorslilp. or any other office
within reach , Dr. Smith , of Whitelield , of the
ex-governor's counsel , and Goveinor Bod-
well are all contemplating a sojourn to Eu

among the number.
