LomsviM.K , Ky. , Junu'JJ. ' ln Kentuckj'H
flhaine , thu lawless county of Ktnvan , was
this morning enacted what will , beyond
doubt , prove thu tinal chapter In the bloodiest
mountain vendetta known to the history of
the state. The culmination was reached in
the tragic end of four desperate men who
forfeited their lives vvhllo resisting the man
dates of the law. After the destruction of
thousands of dollars worth of property , and
up to this writing , the loss of twenty-one
lives during the two years' continuance of
the leud , Kowan county can now return to
peace and prosperity. A special to the Cour-
rler-Joiirnat from Lexington , Ky. , gives the
following account ot the light : "I'lm news
from Hoan county Is of the most exciting
kind , as It appears to bo an indisputable
fact that Craig Tolllver Is killed and
his gang dismembered forever. Sheriff Hogg ,
presumably acting under Instructions from
the state authorities , has been tor about a
week quietly organl/lng a very large posse ot
determined men In thu upper part of Houan
county aud In adjoining counties lor the pur
pose of ariestlng Uralg T. Olllver , or all the
party who were Implicated In the murder of
the Logan boys some two weeks ago. T.
Olllver and his party , consisting of about tee
men , went heavily armed to meet eveiy
eastward bound train at the depot to search
for suspicious characters and to see that no
one got elf at Morehead but those whom
they desired , bheillf Hogg equipped his
largo party with Winchester rllles
find ammunition was scciotly convoved to
his rendezvous vvhllo ho was organl/lng the
posse. It was finally determined to attempt
the airest of the assassins Wednesday , Juno
' -J , In the day time , to prevent any women ,
children or Inoffensive cltl/ens fiom being
killed by accident. Accordingly , at an eailj
hour this morning peojilo living on the line
ot the railroad within two or three miles o !
Morehead on each side ot trnvn were noti
fied to stop all trains and Inform the
conductois what was going on In
.Morehead so that passengers a nd
trainmen would not bo placed In
danger. Sheriff Hogg's band ot resolute
men , numbering moie than two hundred ,
appeared suddenly at Morehead about
o'clock this morning. A cordon was lirs
established around the entire town In tlio
brush where the men could not be scon. The
sheriff then entered town at the head of about
100 well aimed men. Craig Tolllver and his
ten followers immediately retreated to the
Cottage hotel , which they had previously btn-
rlciuled In such a manner as to make It quite
a formidable fortress. Sherilf Hogg thoi
notified Tolliver that he had wai rants
for thu in rest of all the men
Implicated in the killing of the Logai
bojH , and asked tnat they all submit peace
ably toaricst undei the law. Tolliver'sroDlj
was that neither ho not his men would bo or-
lested , and that a hundred men could not
take thorn. His party then opened lire upon
the sherin's posse. Quito a brisk battle ot
musketry ensued , and the lighting was kept
tip probably for two hours. The only casualty
for a time was a flesh wound received by one
ot the sheriff's posse. The attacking party ,
however , were gradually drawing their line
closer around Tolllver's foitllicatlon , and the
besieged partj- , finding things growing
too warm , finally concluded to make a bok
rii'h for liberty , cut their way through the
sheriff's lines , nnd take to the adjacent biush
which once reached would alfoul them secure
escape. But as they made the rush they were
met by a tremendous volley , which klllei
Craig ' 1 olllver , Itud Tolliver , Jay Tolllver
nml Hiram Cooper. The other
men of the gang got throng )
safely , but as they approached thn brusl :
they vv ore met by a volley from the outslcu
cordon. This volley wounded Cato Tolliver
a twolvc-jeai old boj- , and three others , al
of whom were captured except Cato Tolliver
The other thieo also escaped , but one was
captured attciwaras. This brought the
battle to an eud.

A Decision hy the Attorney Genera )
HpiuloriMl Ijnnt April.
NEW Yoitic , Juno 22. [ Special Telegram
to the BKII.J The Trlbuno's Washington
special says : There Is substantial ground
now to assert that before the tempest raised
by the publication of the order for the sur
render of thecaptuicd rebel flags , the war
department , probably with the knowledgeas
It already had the consent of the president ,
began the execution of the order. There Is
reason to believe that a good many of the
flags captured Irom Virginia regiments , par
ticularly those captmed lioin regiments
which belonged to Flit/ Hugh Leo's com
mand , were turned over and taken to Vir
ginia. Assertions to this elloct are so posi
tive and come trom such trustworthy sources
that they must bo respected. It Is dlllicult to
believe that even under this administration
the captured trophies which were the
trophies ot the United States government
have been suuejitloiislv surrendered to
representatives of commands or states Irom
which they vveie captured. It turns
out on Investigation that when
application was madn In behalf of
some of the heirs of the late General Lee for
the return of ceitaln articles ol personal
property belonging to him which are de
posited in the National museum , the museum
authorities biought the matter to the atten
tion ot the president , and that after consid
ering It he concluded , on the advice of a
member of his cabinet , that theaiticlcs could
not bo given up to the claimants except by
authority of congress. Certain member of
the cabinet retried to abovn appeals , accoid-
ing to the Sun's \ \ ashington dispatch , to bo
Attorney General Garland , who , In a letter
ot April 12 , said that while the Leo articles
were of llttlo value , the "uncertainty as to
title would render the ultimate disposition
of the property moro propeily within the
range ot congressional cognisance than that
of the executive. I would , therefore , respect
fully suggest that the status of the property
as It now exists bo maintained , and the sub
ject of Its final disposition bo left to congress
lor Its final consideration. " This letter met
and disposed of the very point Involved in the
controversy over the flags , and this too only
a little morn than two months before the Hag
order was Issued. How Jt was possible for
anyolllcerof thogovernmentvvith this option
before him to go wrong unwittingly Is a
great my sterj' . What Is now needed Is an
explanation that explains.

thn BKK.I The consideration of the pro
posed amendments to the constitution ot the
National Travelers' Piotectivo association
were yesterday made the special order for
this morning and provoked the liveliest dis
cussion. The greatest division of the day
was upon the question of admitting the em
ployers to membership In the association.
This amendment was llually amended and
adopted admitting them as honoiary mem
bers only. The amendment to removn the
national headquarters from Chicago to Wash
Ington , D. C. , was lost. The amendment
doing away with national committees and
giving the president charge of tholr work ,
putting the president on a salary , was car
ried. The remainder of the day was spent
on routine work. A binquet was given this
evening at the Llndell hotel by the
cltl/ens. There were 850 plates sot

I Juno 2-J. [ Now York Herald Ca
ble Special to the Itnn.J The Jubilee was
best celebrated here by a grand meeting of
the National league. Never since has there
been such a Iar e attendance. Lord Major
Sullivan presided. Mr. Harrington , on be
half of WllJIam O'ltilen , apologl/cd for the
absence of the latter In consequence of the
fatigue of his jouincy and medical necessity
for rest. He could read the letter of L'UReno
Kelley to Parnell , dated Juno 7 , enclosing
$ ! ! ,500. Lord Major Sullivan's address was
lilled with wise suggestions. Among other
things he said : " 1 suppose we may all regard
thlsas a jubilee meeting. We are not without
getting a jubilee present of the co
ercion bill. We have a vciv
handsome jubilee present to-day
from our friends In America , whom most
heartily and sincerely wo thank. 1 had a
little Invitation to be present elsewhere as
lord major of Uublln , but 1 preterrcd to be
where I am , amongst my own people and
doing my humble best to stand by them and
share whatever trouble , risk 01 sacrlhce
mleht bo before us. To-day about the streets
of Dublin we see bunting waving In the
breeze , but { hero is another Hag waving to
day in Ireland , which may not be visible to
the naked eye , flouting proudly over the
Irish people and nation , and that Is
the Hag of the plan of campaign. "
In London Is a display of tlrcworks , but It
seems to mo that there Is another exhibition
of light tlamo that , if reproduced In that city ,
would add to the Interest of the occasion , and
that would be , If In 1'lcadilly circus a repre
sentation had been got up of the flaming
cabins of Ocnbelgh. There are coming also
near London the military tnaneuvics , re
view , sham light , etc. In like manner It
would add much to the scene In London if a
representation was got up of the slego of
Bodj ke. 1 am proud ot the light that w as
made there tor the houses and in bolf
defense. I rejoice at the fact that
It required the presence of a small army In
ordei to carry out those evictions. I hope for
the future In all parts of Ireland whore vil
lages or numbeis of people aio to bo evicted
that affairs will also bo so arranged that the
presence of a small army shall bo necessarj *
In order to got these people out of tholr
homes. Gentlemen , 1 am decidedly against
a foolish collision with the armed forces of
the crown. 1 think It would boa highly 1m-
Vroper and toollsh procedure , lint , on the
other hand , 1 am In favor of decidedly offer
ing resistance on those occasions and of
making these operations so dlllicult that It
will bo necessary , in order to presoive the
peace , that the British government will be
compelled to goto the tiouble and expense of
brtuglni ; down to those scenes a larco force
of military. I do not tlilnlc It
would be creditable to our people
if , on the raising of the little linger of n
biilllll , they \\oie to walk with heads down
out of their homes. The time was when that
otder ot things did exist and when the people ,
without a show of resistance and nothing
but tears In their eyes , walked out of tholr
little cabins at the bidding , almost uncoin-
plalnedly , to diift Into the workhouses or by
the roadside. However , If the order of things
that took place at liokyko had been acted on
In those days , we would have had a veiy dif
ferent tale to-day In Ireland. There would not
have been so many cloaianceg , so many llttlo
villages swout oil , and so many holds added
to other fields to make hugo grazing grounds
for cattle and sheep. One thing ; more In
order to make my position neifectly clear.
Anything in the nature of what is consid
ered an outrage it Is our duty as well as Inter
est to condemn. Resistance is one thing ,
even if it was carried to an extreme. Still
manly resistance in open day theiOugllsh and
lush people understand. But what neither
English nor right minded Irish people can
undeistand Is mean and cowardly midnight
outrace. "
The applause hero was vivid. Hcsuuilng ,
tlio lord mayor continued :
'We face the future with a brave , stout
heart. We tell the government to do their
best with their new coercion act. If they en
deavor to suppress the National league , wo
know the hl&tory of the country. Such pro
ceedings will never bo achieved. The object
ot the coercion bill Is to put down free speech ,
frco writing and combination amongst the
tenants against rack renting and oppression ,
but I say wo are resolved to do our best to In
sure that all these things shall , aye
shall , go on In Ireland desplto the coer
cion act ; and it all other oiganlzatlons
aie to bo persecuted and suppressed , there Is
one great organl/atlon which will bo ready
to taku their place , and that Is tbo organiza
tion ot the Irish parliamentary party. Let
us see how the British government proposes
to deal with such an organisation. On jubi
Ice day , at this crisis and this moment , we
pledge ourselves anew to the Irish national
cause , and declare our readiness and deter
mlnatlon to stand by that cause , despite
whatever this tyrannical tory govemmenl
may have In store for us , "
When Sullivan , without passion but with
his face as pale , doubtless , as once was that
of Henry , or Otis , or Samuel Adams , In 1770
in America , pronounced this epilocuo , while
many applauded , the faces of most present
who remained silent became studies In the
resolution that Hashed from eye or were un
mistakably manifested by nervous folding
up of hands and arms. Ilia speech would
bo a good piece tor the Irian bojs to speak
nt school. Then a stillness for an Instant
pttssed over the assemblage of SOU delegates ,
until Dillon , pale , but cool , arose. He
gave a succinct sketch of the workings of the
plan of campaign ; how you prevent land
lords reoccupy ing their expenses and costs In
evlctloiiH , as used to be the case , and how
It secured to the evlctors support wlthoul
public charity or absolute penury.as formerly
was the case ; how the plan was practically
evicting the landlords of the enjoyment of
their land. His entire speech would till
nearly a page.
Next Hanlngton said : "I am asked from
America and everywhere , what are we going
to do against this coercion bill. There Is a
general Impression that we ought to Issue a
manifesto to the Irish people directing them
how they should meet the bill. I wish to
point out to friends that we are perfectly
prepared to meet tbo act Inch by Inch , but
that [ hero he spoke with marked delibera
tion ] we do not by any means consider It the
wisest course- that early In the struggle wo
should tell our opponents how It Is. We are
going to tight It. Some think It would bo a
wise Issue to call tbo Irish people to
give no evidence at any secret Inquiries
under tug net. Vo-u j-.vy d-e-p-e-u-a

The applause and shouts that greeted thcso
words of Import can bo better Imagined than
described. Then , vtlth cheers lor Gladstone ,
D'ilrlen , 1'arncll and Eugene Kelly , the
league adjourned.
Thcso utterances deserve marked attention
because It Is well understood that Mcsirs.
Sullivan , Dillon and Harrington , allhoiuh
speaking for themselves , apoko what the
caucus of Irish members of paillamcnt had
considered and agreed upon with the appro
bation of the Oladstonlaus In parliament.

The 1'rinco and 1'rlncess of Wales and sous

of royal guests , visited the park during Uio
fete. The children at once freed themselves
from restraint , broke tlio rope barriers ,
rushed pell mell toward the visitors and
packed themselves In solid groups around
them. All etiquette vanished. The princes
and princesses , who seemed deluhted at
their position , mixed among the children
with perfect freedom aud pleasure. The
queen soon arrived. The children massed
themselves in an orderly manner on both
sides of the road over which her majesty's
carriage passed aud moved with It toward
the stand , the assembled bands playing the
national anthem , which the children sang
with grand effect. The queen reached and
ascended the platform while the music was
proceeding. At Its conclusion she presented
a memoi ial cup to a llttlo girl , vv ho had been
selected to represent all the children assem
bled. When the queen departed the whole
assembly ang "Kule Hrlttanla. " Mrs. Glad

sistance , making the fete a .success.

The captain ot 11. M. S. Shannon , upon no

What a fall I
The Omahns and Llucolus met again yes
terday afteinooti , mid the Omahas were
very oadly deteatcd In fact , next to annihi
lated.
The score was 14 to 31
Thu Llncolns won hands down , and the
game \vns devoid of either Interest or enthu
siasm.
Iho Waterloo of the Omahas can bo ex
plained in four words :
Weakness In the box.
However , young Healy was not the only
one to blame not by a long odds ; for
the Omahas played a slovenly game all
around.
And they fell with adull , sickening thud 1
Healj * , who was a giant ot strength thu
other day against the Kinias City sluggers ,
was a pigmy In the hands of Dave Howe's
ballot danceis. They luiind his delivery ap-
mreutly wherever they wanted It , and
he way they ent the ball a-whlz/.intt' to all
parts of the field was a caution.
The umpiie was there , too.
Yes , Deaelcl He made Healy fairly split
the plate with the sphere , or It was a ball ,
dead certain.
Thociowd didn't care whether ho laid
down to day or not , but they tried to hoot
him to death.
They might as well have thought of dam
aging the Niagara by thiustlug their feet before -
fore the waters.
But It is to be hoped that the management
hereafter , if they must have Mr. Deaglo pres
ent at the games , will keep him well In the
mellow chiaroscuro of the uttei background ,
Give us ouu ol the e umpires , just once , we
hear of so olten and see so never.
Then we'll die happy.
In the tirst Inning Swlit and Walsh both
went out to lust , Dwver. however , made his
base on a fumble by Latig , but was caught
trying to steal second.
Hall , for the Llncolns , hit safe to center
and stole second , lieckley was given a lite
by Dwjer's muff , and he and Hall both came
In on nn overthrow to third by the same
plajer. Lang , Shatter and Howe then re-
tiled In order. .
In the second , Krehmever took his seat on
a 11 v to llcrr , Itourko got his base on a tum
ble , second on an overthrow but was lott ,
Bartson striking out and Bader perishing on
a fly to second. For the Llncolns old man
Dolan smacked the globe for three bags , and
ran homo after Herr'slongtlv was exquisitely
caught by Genius after a long and hard run.
Toohoy got lirst on n second frightful mull
by Dw > er , but was killed endeavoring to
steal the nett bag. Hart then struck a high
foul which Dwver took In magnificent shape
luunlug at the top ot his speed with his back
to the audience.
The Omahas broke the ice In the following
Inning. Genius hit sate to lolt.but was caught
at second ; Healy fanned out , and then Swift
made a two-bagger , nnd cauio home on a
wild tluow by Lang of Walsh's hit.
In the fouith they retired in order ,
but In the fifth and sixth each added
another tally to tholr slim total.
Alter this they failed to score , so clean and
faultless was the fielding ot the Llncolns ,
and so effective theTJltchlug of Hart
In the fourth Shaeffer hit safe , and Rovvo
went to lirst on a fumble of his hit by short ,
Shaetfergolnic to second. Dolan drove both
In by n two sucker. Toohoy struck out. Herr
retired at first , but Dolaii leached third. Ho
was caught napping hero , however , by
Krohmoyer and inn down. They scored
again In the fifth , and In the sixth piled up
no less than six runs In this way. Shaeffer
made tirst on a tumble of Uourko's , Kowo
fouled out , but Dolan hit safe to center , aud
Shaelfcr took second. Toohoy'n long hit to
Bnrtsou was then miserably mil tied and uioro
miserably thrown in , the four pairs ot white
stockings coming In on the two errors ,
Toohoy making the complete circuit. Hart
then cot to lirst on a uiiiif , stole ecoud , and
scored on Halt's safe hit and Hall on Buck
ley's. Lang flow out to first. In thu seventh
Kowe tallied on his own single , a pass ball ,
Hurt's two bagger , and two outs , and In the
eighth lieckley made the final score on a
iiiufl by Bartson , Lang's hit , and an out.
Hut why continue the harrowing tale.
