A VE11Y PKTTY SESSION.
Yesterday was not only a marked day but
an adjourned petty session day also and a
remarkable potty session It was In some re
spects. To a person accustomed to the man
ner In which a divisional magistrate In Dnb-
lln discharges his functions the practices of
the provincial potty sessions Is a revelation.
To the Englishmen present the proceedings
wore not only n revelation but a positive puz
zle. Three or four Englishmen , all tourists ,
were present In court ana expressed them
selves with great freedom concerning the
proceedings. The dread and deep resent
ment felt hero lust now In landlord and po
lice circles at the Intrusion of the Inquisitive
English tourists Is grunt. There was a fam
ily squabble tried In court and one person
suggested that another was n troublesome
suangcr. "Oh , yes , " said Mr. Stand Ish
O'Grady , solicitor for the mortgages on the
Kingston ostatos."ho is ono of those wonder
ful English tourists seeing Ireland for Him-
An English gentleman visited the police
barracks a few days ago to niako Inquiries
as to what defense the police could suggest
tor their murderous fuslladn on Friday.
"Are you an Englishman , " said a police
"I am. "
, "Well , " replied the valiant warrior , drawIng -
Ing hlmsclt to his full height and expanding
bis chest , "if it were not for the Irish
, police you would not have Ireland to-day. "
The Englishman afterwards laughed heart
ily at the suggestion. "It is not our army or
our navy , " said ho , "that we hold Ireland. It
. Is by the men who fled olt the square on Fri
day like a lot of frightened sheen and then
'fired on their unarmed countrymen from the
windows of the barracks. "
> There were two magistrates on the bench
' Eaton and O'ltcagan. The person next In
Importance , to all appearances , was a wild-
looking fellow named Jim Nelll , who
does the chief crowbar work on the
Kingston estate. Next in Importance
.came O'Grady , the solicitor , and Mr. Friend ,
the agent on the same estate. All the others
followed in varying degrees of Importance
until it came to some poor people there , who
didn't seem to bo ot any Importance at all.
No one , however , was left in doubt as to
Nolll's Importance. Ho Interfered In every
case. Interrupted his solicitor , in order that
be intent argue on his own account a difficult
point with their worships , which ho did not
think Mr. O'Grady competent to do In n satls-
* factory manner , laughed and sneered at any
person who ventured to disagree with him
a.s to law or fact and burst Into ( its of indignation -
' nation at the pica that any ono would cast
r the slightest doubt on the honor or varaclty
of Jim Nelll. Occasionally ho addressed the
I court In a manner which In ordinary people
i would hardly bo regarded as very respectful.
* "Look hero , " said Jim Nelll at one time
, -When their worships ventured to disagree
- with him , "tills Is what ye ought to do. "
THE I'EUSECUTION OF O'lllHK.V.
And It Is such a tribunal that O'Brien , by
the crimes act , must como before for judg
ment and sentence. The police have not
BO far troubled the peace of Mr. Mandevllio ,
who It co-defendant with Mr. O'Urlen. Mr.
Mandovlllo was present at Sblnnlck's
funeral , but the authorities took no steps to
take him Into custody and lodge him in the
county jail In company with O'Brien , it Is
Btatud that they will not take him up until a
few days preceding the resumption of the
case on Friday week. This shows the malice
of shutting un O'Brien and not balling him.
The proceedings of the past week hare , how
ever , not In any way altered the determina
tion of the people to stick linn and unflinch
ing by the attitude they have adopted up to
the present On the contrary , .they are now
morn determined than ever to continue their
' , fight until their just demands have been
W granted. _

arrived at Berlin this evening. The em
peror's sojourn in Stettin was an unquali
fied success , the reported fainting lit being
erroneous. The return of the Imperial party
to Boilln finally disposes of the reports that
the emperor would have an in tin view with

The success of the German candidates at
the election for members ot the Bohemian
delegates place the Czech majority face to

A ( Jront Undertaking.
St. PAUI. Sept. 17. ( Special Telegram to
the BKE.J There are pretty strong Indlca-
cations now that the present Northwestern
Daso ball league will go out ot existence nt
: lie close of the prasont season. The league
s never been a success , either financially
or otherwise , and there is a gigantic scheme
being quietly worked for the formation of a
new league association. The probabilities
are thit it will be called the Western Base
Hall association and the number of clubs will
jo Increased. The plan is now to take
in Kansas City , Omaha , Chicago , Milwau
kee , Minneapolis , St. Paul , Des Mninca ,
Dubuque , St Louis , and perhaps St. Joe.
Correspondence has been going ou between
all the above citlrs for some time past. Rep-
rescntatlves from Kansas City , Umnba ,
Chicago and St. Louts have been in St. Paul
ind Minneapolis to look over the situation.
The whole thinz has been done secretly.
This secrecy has prevailed for the reason that
the men Interested are planning to sign
some of the best plajers in both the National
league and American association , at the
close of the season. It is Intimated that
many of the best players In the above associ
ations have been touched and with success In
some Instances. There will bo ample capital
back of the association. * President Von dcr
Alie , of the St Louis Drowns , has been
asked to bring his club Into the
new association and now has
the matter under consideration. In
case ho refuses a new club will bo formed in
St. Louis. The Kansas City and Omaha en
thusiasts are the principal movers in the new
scheme. A base ball man who Is cognizant
of the overtures made by the Kansas City
and Omaha representatives says that thn
Kansas City team if organized , will bo one of
the strongest in America and that they have
already bid high enough to capture some ot
the best players from the two leading clubs
of the country. Omaha promises to do
equally as well. The Chicago men are anx
ious to put a club into the new
association. It is whispered that A. O.
Spaulding favors the now sehcmo and while
ho will still fitict to Ms lirst love , the Chicago
club , it is said he might bo Induced to take a
hand on the nulet In the organization of the
new club , whether the new association is
organl/ert or not hangs on the action of
Minneapolis and St. Paul. It is said. If the
"twins" come In. as they are aski-d to do ,
there is but little doubt the new association
will bo in the Held next year.
