DUIILIX , Oct. 15. [ New York Herald
Cubic Special to the Hen. ] Great scundals
nro again fathered by the Dublin Castle nils-
govermnent. The ofllclal appointed to assist
the county court judgeIn the administration
of the new land act in Queens county is no
less a person than Valentino Hinds , baillff-
in-chicf to Lord Lunsdowne at Luggacurran.
Ho lives check by jowl with Lord Luns-
downe's rent oftlco at Luggneurran and
within fifty yards of the cottages which have
been erected for the fifty families whom he
lias been the principal instrument
in evicting. As to-day's Freeman Journal
says : "The land net administered by Lord
Lansdownc's bum bailiff is the very latest
and most horrible of rascalities of Irish
life. " '
The second scandal occurred last evening
nt Taghoen , Wexford , when a special session
under the crimes act , the first kind in the
country , was held before Messrs. McLcod
and Uedkin , K. M. Twenty persons were
brought up charged with intimidation and
unlawful assembly. The greatest in
terest is centered in the proceed-
ings. Quo of the score _ was a _ young
girl , iMiss Alary Ann Luwler , who looked
defiantly pretty , but not so much defiantly as
to succeed in intimidating a bailiff. There
Vi3 : no jury. Senior Magistrate MoLcod
said"Now to como to this young and res
pectable girl. Wo did not like to send her to
jail , because girls , once sent to prison , the
stigma adheres to them through life. "
Mr. LeamyJ of counsel Under this aet it
is no stigma to go to prison. It is an honor.
[ Applause. ]
Magistrate What we suggest is that she
enter into her own recognizance for good
Miss Lawlcr I will give no security at all ,
n declaration received with loud and pro
longed applause in court.
Magistrate Clear the court nt once.
Tho. police set about carrying out this
order and the scene for a time was one of the
greatest confusion. Mr. Leamy jumped up
and protested against the people being shoved
by the police. Turning to Miss Lawlcr , Mr.
Lcurny cried out : "You arc the best little
girl in Ireland , and a credit to your country. "
Again and again the cheers resounded in and
around the court house.
Magistrate Wo did everything In kind
ness that we possibly could.
Miss Lnwler Speak up , please , sir I can
not hear you with the noise.
Magistrate We did all we could to relieve
you of being sent to Jail , but now , as you de
cline to give any undertaking , wo must send
you to Jail for fourteen days with the rest.
Miss Lawler , In a loud voice -Very well , I
will go to Jail.
Mr. Leamy It is n sliamc to send n little
girl like that to Jail. I would ask you to in
crease the sentence to six weeks' imprison
ment to allow us to appeal.
Mr. McMahon , for the crown Oh , no , ]
could not consent to that. I am acting here
on behalf of the attorney general and I have
not authority to consent to that. The sentence -
tenco lias been pronounced.
Mr. Leamy I am asking the magistrates
mid not the crown. The sentence must bo
passed before the application could be made.
Mr. McMahon The sentence has been very
lenient and the great kindness of the magis
trate has been repulsed in the most indignant
manner. I never saw such u scene before.
Mr. Leamy With regard to this little girl ,
what punishment is to bo inflicted on her ii

Mr. Leamy Indeed , it is not her own lookout

LO.NIIOX , Oct. 15. [ New York HoraU
Cable Special to the HUE. ] In libera
and Parncllito circles the conviction gains
strength that the government is in n serious
difficulty and may even have to resign. Dee ;
ing with the matter simply as n question of
fact , I have to say that 110 ground exists for
tiny such roK | > rts. The regular working ma
jority remain ! ) not less than eighty , which
can bo brought up to n hundred in n great
emergency. The liberal-unionists , in spite of
the defection of Buchanan and two or three
Others , will hold fast to the ministry. As in
dicated by Chamberlain's the
speeches , con
servatives remain solid with one doubtful ex
ception. There is not the faintest difference
Of opinion in the cabinet as to the proper
course to pursue in Ireland , If Churchill re
turned , the laws would still have been en
forced. His speeches provo his determina
tion to maintain the union. There are facts
that must be faced. No ministry ever re
signed with a working majority of over
eighty. As for the legal aspects , the pre
vious dispatches will bo found correct
Q'Brion must go to prison. The government
desired to let the appeal take its course , but
all the lawyers affirm that there can bo but
Ono result. Other prosecutions for
sedition speeches against English members
\ ybo \ \ \ instituted. New and vigorous meas
ures will bo taken against league theories or
wishes. Thus stands the case : The league
or the government must go under. Everybody -
body would cry out for the Impeachment of
' t 8u-'h A'juncture.
* o such idea was ever for a moment enter-
allied. The cabinet may be reconstructed ,
nit the change will effect the position of the
lostilo forces now drawn up In battle array.
Whether Salisbury , Hartlngton , Churchill or
Chamberlain is nt the head of the govern
ment that the result in this respect will bo
the same cannot be too clearly stated.
Gladstone's recent attacks on the police
have scared off many who wcro returning to
fold and immeasurably widened the
breach between him and the moderate inde
pendent men. These menacing crowds in
London do splendid work for the government
without meaning it. Everybody seeing them
asks , "Where should wo be but for
Ihe police , whom Gladstone tries
to weaken. " Taking up the cudgel
for Lyons , the socialist , his great mistake for
months past , the people feel as they would in
America if Cleveland made a speech defend
ing the Chicago anarchists. Gladstone repre
senting a gentleman named Lyons as a vic
tim of brutal ca-rcion has done more harm to
his Irish allies than the nttacksof their worst
enemies. You will hear much of this for
weeks to come.
As one of the decisive incidents In a Par-
ncllitc war , threats against Hnlfour pour In
daily. Ho has made up his mind to sec the
fight out como what may. Even in English
papers covert threats have appeared that
may prove awkward if anything happened to
Halfour. A strict record is being kept of
public Incitements to assassination. They
cannot help the Irish cause.
The deputation to the president started to
day. Aa one of the signers of the memorial
I may say that it represents all shades of
parties and opinions in parliament. The idea
inspiring it is that the two nations
ought now to set an example to the
rest of the world in agreeing to decide all
future disputes by arbitration. So much
the worse for the world. If it will not allow
the example of the proposed treaty to omlnato
from congress it would then bo pressed upon
the British government by parlicment. If
the idea seems quixotic to some , pray give us
credit for good intentions.
The French scandal will cause considerable
rattling of skeletons in certain cupboards
here. There is no corruption of which wo
can boast , or we hope not , but there js a good
deal of Jobbery. Government contracts are
too often obtained by all sorts of underhand
influence. The official reports show how dis-
honpstly they arc filled , one contractor being
supplying for years n peculiar paint con
demned all over tbo world by the navy , yet
ho continues to get the contract. It can't bo
n reward of virtue alone. The government
stores arc filled with rubbish bought at ex
travagant prices and never examined. The
original contract , perhaps , was jobbed out
three or four times over. I never
heard of admirals being dismissed
for corruption. The French papers
wcro VivoV.r.y ! ! thinking of poor buying.
General Wolsoly often denounced jobbery ,
being happily above all reproach himself. No
officer of the government has been accused
or suspected of jobbery for a hundred years.
Hut how about vestries and metropolitan
boards of works. Street opening jobs have
been perpetrated quite as scandalous as over
took place in New York. Architects have
paid largo sums for contracts they ought
never to have had. Corner lots have been
mysteriously sold long before the public had
a chanc6 of getting in. Many a man has
cause to bless his lucky stars that he had a
kind friend in the board of works. Yet wo
are all ready to shake our heads solemnly
over those awful Frenchmen. People arc
sorry Boulnnger is mixed up. Without
knowing much about him ho was rather pop
ular here. The steady increase in the do-
innnd for his portrait is n good test. The
public is inclined to join in the song that
Houlanger will return.
Hankers as well as brokers arc getting
seriously alarmed at one heavy blow after
another in American stocks. I know of
moro than ono eminent house that used to
strongly recommend American railroad
bonds to clients that now discourages all
such investments , and lays the blame upon
the Baltimore & Ohio. It has fallen from its
former high estate so far as this country is
concerned. In the time of the late Garrett
it stood first in estimation. Now it is difficult
to say. where it stands or whether it stands at
Think what people may of Hughcs-Hallett ,
there can only bo a sentiment of admiration
for the noble way in which his wife is stand
ing by him. A tissue of falsehoods having
appeared in ono of the contemporaries con
cerning Hnllett's designs on his wife's for
tune , she denounced it and fully vindicates her
husband. She also interests herself in his be
half at Rochester and begs to bo allowed to
appear before conservatives , which may , to
some extent , exonerate her husband. She
believes ho is almost as much sinned against
as sinning. Vanity Fair tries to convict
Captain Selwyn of the responsibility for
hounding Stead on. If this is established ,
Selwyn must go down with the others. Ho
would never be forgiven the exposure of his
sister. Hut Selwyn denies it. I happen to
know that ho was particularly reticient when
the story first leaked out. Long before
Stead got on the scent , Selwyn's position at
best was extremely difficult , his sister never
having anything much to do with him. In
coiucqucnco of a Jamily quarrel she had al
ways declined to regard him as any authority.
As at present seen , she still resent his inter
ference , and she alone seems to be ro
sppnsiblo for the publication in the Pall
Mull Gazsttee of the story which effectually
seals her ruin.

PAULS , Oct. 15. [ New York Herald Cable
-Special to the HUE. ] The weather contin
ues cold , wet and windy- Umbrellas and
waterproofs monopolize the boulevards , and
not. even Bouhinger's arrest nor the extraor
dinary panorama of swindlers and dupes that
makes up the 'Caffarel-Limouzin-d'Andlau-
Withon-Ratozzi scandal has yet fanned Par
isians into anything like the bluzo of excite
ment and revolt that had been confidently
predicted. The carefully planned hunt for
the corpulent but still inevitable General
d'Andlan has become n sort
of standing joke. All day and all
night six policemen and six detectives
pace solemnly uy and down Rue Scribe in
front of the Jockey club where the missing
general used to dine. These vldcttes are re
lieved every four hours. Other squads of
police and detectives are patrolling up and
down in front of Twenty-fifth avenue , Dan-
tin , where the general used to sleep. Still
larger detachments hover around the beau
tiful chateau of Vcrdcrpnno near Llancourt
whcro the general used to shoot pheasants
and partridges. Still moro detectives are
stationed at every railway station within a
radius of twenty miles of Paris. In fact the
entire police force of 'Frauco has for three
days been hunting after the general and try
ing to stack him as if ho were
a deer , but the wily general , handicapped as
ho.is by corpulency-ami gout'.has completely
bullied all Ills pursuers , _ T uiikQ the hunt of
General d'Andlan moro amusing it turns out
that General d'Andlan had an intimate ac
quaintance with two American ladles , named
Harriet Hare and her daughter Miss Emma
Hare , who are also in the decoration scan
dals. These occupied very luxuriously fur
nished apartments at No. 4 Kuo Boceador ,
near the Champs Elyscs. Forty police agents
arc now in full chase after these Hares , but
they seemed to have left Paris a year ago ,
and the jwllcc have so far been unable to get
upon their scent.
The way in which the Parisians received
the news of Boulanger's arrest proves un
mistakably that the "bravo general" has
fallen many n peg in popularity. Even his
own supporters , ' Kochofort , Clcincnccau ,
Emmanuel , Arnia , acknowledge that , Judged
from a military point of viewGeneral Ferron
had no other choice left open to him but to
arrest the once popular hero , and M. Francis
Mnynard in to-day's Figaro hits the nail
exactly on the head and says what ninety-
nine out of a hundred Frenchmen really feel.
M. Maynard writes : "Ex-army officers
demand that General Houlanger
should bo put on the retired list. I
think the slight punishment that General
Ferron has inflicted is much moro spirtuello
and in exact proportion to the fault commit
ted. It required a head far strongerand far
better ballanced than General Boulanger's to
resist the avalanche of popularity that was
showered upon him. When ho denied hav
ing written the famous letters to the luke
d'Aumulo ho compromised , to my
mind , the dignity of his. profes
sion much moro than his recent com
ments on nets of his superior officer.
His friends tell us with tears in their eyes
that he bows his head in silence before the
pnnlshmcnt inflicted upon him but , great
heavens , what else could ho doi Suppose ho
resigned , why then ho would no longer bo a
general , ho would no longer have his famous
black horse nor his white plume and oven his
beautiful beard would become merely n vivll-
iaus beard and bo no longer of the slightest
use to him. Non , non , ho won't resign. Ho
will como beck to Paris about eagter holi
days , perhaps cuen New Years day and the
gobo mcnchcs of the capital will continue to
admire themselves in the person of their
hero made after their own image , like them
selves mediocre bavard and tupajeurs. "
Quito a stir was made in American and
English colonies In Paris by the news pub
lished in the New York Evening Telegram
and cabled to the Herald's ' European editor
about Messrs. Brentano's intentions of start
ing a branch establishment in Paris. This
morning a Herald reporter , walking along
the boulevard des Capacinis met Mr. Artrur
Hrentano Just as the latter was buying n
European Herald at the newspaper Kiosquo
in front of the Jockey club. Mr. Brentana
was surrounded by several New
Yorkers who asked him , "when
is the great book shop going
to start ! " Bentano replied , "Very soon. I
have just been hunting for premises. Wo
mean business. " "Well , " was the respon
sive chorus , "I'm glad there's no mistake
about it. "
"Where do you think of settling ? " the re
Brentano said , "I have not yet decided ,
but symcwhero near the Place do 1' Opera.
It's the only quarter now suitable. The Kuo
d' Ilivolis is a thing1 of the past from our
point of view. I have my eye fixed on the
place to lot next to the Herald. "
The reporter asked , "When do you think
of beginning operations , Mr. Brentano ? "
"Just as soon as ever I can rent a place.
Our stock could bo here in about three
"Havo you found any wide felt want for a
new bookseller hero ? "
"Yes , indeed. I have heard lots of in
quiries. At present , you know , there is not
a single bookseller in Paris worthy the name ,
as I understand the term. "
"Will you cater onlp for Americans ? "
"Oh , dear no. Wo will have books and
papers for Englishmen , Americans , French
men , Italians , Germans , in fact for every
body. No expense will bo spared. Wo
mean business. "
Mr. James G. Blaine , who is still en
trenched at the Hotel Binda , has deferred
his journey south and is looking for private

The marriage of Viscomto Emmanuel
d'Harcourt with the Duchess do Castries
came off very quietly to-day at the Chapello

the families and other relatives were present.
The witnesses for the bridegroom were Due

and for the bride , Prince George Mavrocor-

Duchess do Castries , who wore a simple but
charming dress of faille grioperlc , embroid
ered with silver and n delicious little eapoto
with a dazzling nigretto of silver and pearl
grey ostrich feathers.
Crowds of Americans wcro selecting beau
tiful furs and garments at Hedlirm's yester
day. A wealthy Husshin princess purchased
a real black fox and plain clue cloth evening
wrap for 15,000 francs. Another pretty
evening wrap was of pearl-colored plush
lined with white Thibet and rolling collar of
Thibet. The queen of Portugal had a blue
electric cloth suit with white underskirt
braided with gold and a pointed out
side piece in sleeves of white
cloth braided with gold buttoned
inty the sieves. A small pointed plasteron of
whlto cloth braided in gold adorned the cor
sage. The costume was rich and handsome
and something beyond the ordinary street
gown. A toguo cloth hat was with it with n
brim of blue velvet braided in gold and two
stiff gold patterns completed the costume.
Among the others of the pretty street toilets
was ono for Margherita , queen of Italy. An
olive green cloth suit trimmed with astrak
han. The jackets had a small cloth vest of red
across which wcro cords of braid around the
edge of the pocket were narrow bands of
Astrakhan loops of military braid led from
the right shoulder not unllko the Italian of
ficer's striking uniforms. The skirt was of
plain green cloth and down the sides were
broad stripes of Astrakhan over which they
hung in long graceful folds , though very
plain and simple. Another gown for tlio
qticcn was a wh'ito .cloth skirt braided in
an l a.hjng pol9aa.Sse _ of light gray cloth
topped high on the sides , corsage buttoned
on stdo and trimmed with white and
gojd. The skirts now worn are without bus
tles , thoiii'h full and plain in the back. Many
of the handsomest street and visiting gowns
are of plain pearl cloth .braided and with
black cloth or lighter color of the same ma
terial draped over them. An Irish cloak for
evening was very pretty of whlto cloth lined
with silk or fur and a hood lined with silk.
Miss Hattlo Mitchell , daughter of Senator
Mitchell , of Oregon , had a handsotno long
black Astrakahn coat bordered with
? ray .of the same material , reach

FRANCE'S MILITARY SCANDAL.
The Attention of All Berlin Occu
pied With It.
( Cojijyrff/M 7SS7 by Xew 1'ork Atroctatcil Press. )
BiitiiN : , Oct. 15 , The French military
scandal occupies the attention of both public
and official circles. It is impossible to deny
that the revelation gratifies German senti
ment toward Franco , chiefly because of the
disclosures of internal disorders and of cor
ruption and discord in places which help to
thwart the rcvanchist designs and even tend
toward abating rcvanco rancors. Gen
eral ' conduct is
pecially condemned by the whole press ,
whoso opinion is practically unanimous that
ho has irreparably injured himself. Tills con
sciousness of newspaper opinion is not quite
shared by official circles , whcro the re-
surganco of Boulunger ns n military leader
of tlio radicals and revanclsts is predicted as
the certain ultimate issue of the warfare
of parties. General Boulanger's innocence
of anything but nn indiscretion is
accepted hero ns unassailable. Another
noteworthy aspect of the German feeling is
the tendency of sympathy for the French
people. The Vossicho Heitung claims for the
French as national qualities , morality , so
briety and industry , and says it would bo
unjust to hold them responsible for vicious

NASTIVILLK , Tenn , , Oct. 15. At MeKenzic ,
Tenn. , the president , Mrs. Cleveland and the
postmaster general actually got loft , the
train starting gaily off for Nashville without
them. McKenzlo is a crossing of two roads
and the train had to bo switched from ono to
another on a "C. " When the train reached
the station the mayor cnmo aboard and
told the president that a platform had been
erected and.the people were waiting to hear
and sco him. Tlio president said that since
they had made preparations ho would go out
and show himself , but wouldn't talk. Ac
cordingly he , his wife and Colonel Vilus
alighted while the train was being switched.
The railroad people put the general mana
ger's car in between the cnpino and
the vestibule train , and when this
was done started right off from the
opposite side of the depot , the manager
of the railroad supposing the president and
party were aboard. The train had gone a
milo down adtqap grade before the manager
could bo reached , and then , owing to the
light engine and heavy train , it took quite n
little time to back up to the station again.
The party came aboard laughing , but the
president said for the future ho would con
fine himself to the getting off places indi
cated in the programme.

Death nt the licccptlon.
MEMPHIS , Tenn. , Oct. 15. Judge H. T. El-
lettwho , made the welcoming addrcssto Pres
ident Cleveland hero this morning , died on
the stand before the ceremonies were over.
The tragic incident occurred just as Presi
dent Cleveland closed his remarks in response
to the judge's welcome. Though the day was
not uncomfortably warm the spot in the cen
ter of the court square where the speaker's
stand had been erected was an exposed ono
and Judge Ellett stood for a time
with his hat off. As the president was speak
ing ho sat down and was soon overcome with
the heat. Dr. Bryant , of the presidential
party , took direction of affairs and remained
V.'ith the gentleman while the president was
cscoi-tcu-tc1 the Cotton and Merchant's Ex
change. ' JudgC-EUsJ't ' died just flyo minutes
after the president left -reviewing stand.
The fact has BO fur been kept fron ? tlio presi
Judge Ellett was a man of high local re
pute. His speech which was not for Mem
phis alone , but for the whole south , was n
memorable one. President Cleveland's ' re
sponse was no less notable. The other as
pects of the occasion had combined
to" " niako tlio affair extraordinary
in all respects. The dccoaations
visible everywhere , were moro elaborate and
general than those of any place visited by
the president , with the possible exception of
Madison , ahd it was remarked that twice as
many people were on the streets us had ever
been seen in Memphis.
In his speech welcoming the president.
Judge Ellett , referring to the celebration of
tlio hundredth anniversary of the formation
of the constitution of the United States , in
which the president participatedsaid : "That
the southern heart was in full sympathy with
that interesting occasion , and that no where
in all this broad land will yon find moro
loyalty to the constitution and to the govern
ment created by it than among the
people of southern states. " Speaking
of the war and its results , Judge
Ellett said the southern people have bowed
to the stern logic of events until they have
in a frank and manly way accepted the re
sult of the struggle as a final settlement of till
questions in dispute , and they have since
labored With rare courage , fortitude and
cheerfulness to accommodate themselves to
their new condition , to reconstruct their
broken fortunes and to contribute as far as
possible to the general prosperity and happi
ness of the whole country.
Iu responding to Judge Ellett's address the
president said : "Tho patriotic sentiment ex
pressed in your behalf by your honored fol
low citizen in his address of welcome , I am
sure , I may say , will bo generously responded
to by your countrymen of the
north. They want , I believe , rest from
sectional bitterness , and they know that the
destiny of our country is only to bo achieved
by true union in sentiment , and in feeling , ns
well as in name. The business interests of
the people are too alert and intelligent to bo
sacrificed or injured by selfish appeals to
passion which should bo allayed. They only
insist that all the results of the arbitration of
arms to which reference has been made ,
shall bo fully retained and enforced. "
After leaving the stand the president drove
to the cotton exchange whcro a reception to
the public was held for an hour. The presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland were assisted by
Postmaster General and Mrs. Vilas. From
the exchange the party was escorted to their
train , and at 1 o'clock left for Nashville.
When Judge Ellett sank into n chair In a
fainting condition some confusion ensued.
Dr. Bryant , assisted by Postmaster General
Vilas and Colonel Robert F. Looney , caught
him ns ho was falling. Several gentlemen of
the entertainment committee aided in the
efforts to restore him , as did also some of tlio
ladies. Dr. Kennedy Jones came to the as
sistance of Dr. Bryant and the two worked
with the prostrate form , but without avail.
President Cleveland , who had just fin
ished his address , stood looking at tlio
efforts being made to restore the vcnerablo
jurist , with sad and sympathetic counte
nance , while Mrs. Cleveland seemed deeply
affected. The presidential party had left the
platform before Dr. Bryant arose from over
the body and said to nn acquaintance : "Let
us join the president's party. " In answer to
.inquiries as to what was the matter with
Judge Ellett , Dr. Bryant answered : "Ho
fainted and has not recovered conscious
ness. " This was said to dispel the shadow of
gloom that might otherwise have been cast
upon Uio festivities. T4ie immense multitude
did not know that death had como among
them , and rushed after the president to the
exposition , leaving to a few friends the sad
duty of conveying the lifeless remains of the
vcncrablc.Judgo to his home.

Special to the line. ] German taste will
not i > ormlt theatrical caricature of foreign
officials , even though these officials are
French. That Is about the way the verdict
on the play In Berlin , "In Wort und Mild , "
reads , but it cost the Frlederlch WilhemslaJ-
crseho theater something like 100,000 marks to
get the verdict. Last Saturday this theatre
through the excitement of the French Fron
tier saw an excellent opiwrtunlty to put on
the boards a new play with General
Boulonger as a burlesque hero. To-day , af
ter a week of howling by all the Berlin crit
ics the burlesque was withdrawn indefin'toly '
so damaged by the attempt to profit r
political excitement that the theatre ma. .
tiger thinks it will bo six months before his
100,000 marks costumes can bo again used In
n reconstructed version of the play. I saw this
afternoon the dramatist Jacobson and askcdhls
opinion regarding the failure of his play. Ho
evidently was a good deal puzzled by the dlsj
aster as ho had thought Boulangcr would
make an cxccllnnt draw. Ho said every
thing was well arranged. "Why , wo spent
100,000 marks on costumes. Tastes nro un
accountable. My first experience was to
have the police go through my play and
strike out all lines of political import. The
police said , owing to the excitement , they did
not wish to risk giving offense. The
French burlesque hero was made
to resemble Boulanger but really
after the play passed police censorship there
was nothing left. Boulanger's part was the
least offensive to France. The public would
not wait to sco this fact. The actor repre
senting Boulanger was not allowed to speak
his part. The audience seemed determined
not to allow such burlesquing. It was a sur
prise to mo , as I thought nil nations were
pleased at seeing a little harmless rldicu
cast at their neighbors. It is not so in Berlin ,
though. So wo take off the piece to remodel it
and bring it out again next year when the
fury against it has worked off. No , in the
remodeled play of the "BouluiiRcr" all allu
sions to France will bo left out. "
At the theatre I have found a strong dis
position to discuss the reasons for the play's
failure , but n very emphatic statement was
made that "Boulanger" would not appear on
their stage again. Among the critics ns well
as among the public generally I find strongly
expressed views that it was an outrage
to attempt to burlesque a leading
French officer on the German stages. It
is n source of considerable pride
that in n city of Berlin's size Germans
enough cannot bo found to support n play
caricaturing a French general in a way
which would bo unpleasant for Germany's
Molko to bo caricatured. On the whole this
theatrical episode , though costly for the
theater , has considerable political value.
Unless the continued steady fall of Rus
sian securities can bo properly called nn
event , Berlin has passed a week which leaves
nothing worth registering. Russian se
curities have been dropping all week with
monotonous steadiness in the fnco
of well sustained prices for other stocks.
There has been no panic or sudden drop in
Russians , but each day's friction wears off *
to 1 per cent in values with as yet no really
just reason. Why Russian values which have
been hem firm during tllQ mn"y war panics
of the last year should r,5T , ' 1' ? "lowly sinking

lin has been equally puzzling over the two
tailless kittens which are interesting for the

in sonic unexplained way , had her tail chop ;
pod off soon after they were born and these
kittens have no vcstago of tails. Therefore ,
of course , naturalists ask whether they are
merely freaks or whether the mother's mis

MixNEAi'ouf , Oct. 15. The report that
General Master Workman Powderly had re
signed at 12 : 'aO this morning created genuine
surprise. It was not generally believed.
Powderly was seen early this morning. Ho
emphatically denied having written his resig
nation. Regarding the lack of harmony
among the members of the executive board
which has been given out as the cause of the
alleged resignation , Powderly refused to ex
Since the convention opened Barry and
Bailey have been known to advocate every
measure presented by the "antis. " This has
been strikingly true of Barry. Ho took Usno
against the administration when the anarch
ist question was being discuseed , and made
such a sensational speech supporting the
resolution that the general assem
bly protested. Ho also advocated the
side of the "antis" in the light
over the Chicago stock yards strike motter.
In each case tlio "antis" were defeated by n
heavy vote. It is assorted that Bitrry lias
been making this fight on personal grounds.
There is no doubt ho and Bailey have many
warm personal friends among the delegates
and that they have been working hard to
gain more. They know a fight was to
bo nnido to get rid of them in
the present convention and they
have been making preparations for
it , but none too soon , it is now on , and bit
ter it promises to bo. There seems to belittle
little doubt that the "antis" will bo rou'cd.
Although the press committee would take
no report this noon , it is learned that the
general assembly spent the forenoon in a red-
hot discussion over the resolution introduced
last night regarding the change In the man
ner of appointing the executive board , which
was for the purpose of providing for getting
away with Barry and Bailey. It is under
stood that no decision has yet been reached.
The situation in the general assembly to
night is unchanged , and it is now thought
the examination of the charges against the
members of the executive board will not bo
completed before Tuesday. Powderly de
nies that ho has written his resignation , but
it is generally believed that if not yet writ
ten its execution is Imminent.

gineer discovered the trestle to bo on firo.
The train passed over in safety , the engin

had passed over the burning section , and an
examination was made. A section ten feet
square was found to bo in flames , and the fire
had evidently started on the under side of
the timber. The fire was soon extinguished.
The flames had not eaten dangerously far
into the wood , and Urn trestle was still sufo.
Had the train been ten minutes later , how
