, ESTABLISHED 1850. t ,J. H. KBXILL, Editor aud Proprietor, f I’ARNELL AWAITS PROOF. HIS ACCUSERS FAIL TO COME TO THE FRONT. Strong Speeches Which Betoken That Public Sentiment is in Favor of the Great Leader- Salisbury Again Snarls at All Lovers of Liberty The “Times” May be Forced to Appear at the Bar of the House. London. April 30.—Lord Salisbury, in an address delivered last night before the Prim rose League at Albert Palace, the occasion haing the sixth anniversary of tho death of Lord Beaconsfleld, said the hollow agitation jai-ried on during the Easter holidays by the opposition had failed, and that the govern ment's cause was the country’s. The gov ernment stood in Ireland facing a vast ma chine producing terrorism and crime, against which the government intended to struggle with all the powers Parliament would grant. Mr. Gladstone's imagination deceived him when he attempted to prove that his party’s prospects were very bright. The present Ir ish crimes bill would not com pare in stringency with Mr. Gladstone's bill of 1881. imprisoned without trial. Under the latter measure people were im prisoned without trial. This could not be done under the present bill. Suppression of crime in Ireland did not mean suppression of liber:v. Podceineti in arresting Bill Sykes did not interfere with liberty. Yet jtfr. “Gladstone condemned this crimes re pression bill. A danger of the present day lay in catchwords. Mr. Gladstone, who had spent his life in changing his opinions, men tioned those who separated from him in the tope of a father lecturing his children. He preached at, and almost prayed for them; but it never occurred to AJr. Gladstone that perhaps they bad something to complain of. They were unable to change their opinions in a night like he could. Lord Salisbury prophesied that Mr. Gladstone would find it difficult to gather around him any new re cruits. his present followers. His present adherents had gone too far to recede What had Mr. Gladstone gained; asked the Premier. He had gained eighty six very devoted followers of Parnell, wiio had hmi challenged with having approved murder and who had refused, or whose friends had refused for him, to enter the witness box and deny the charge, and this course Mr. Gladstone approved. Mr. Par nell had been assisted with funds subscribed by men who never approved murder. When n man was accused in such a manner it was not open to him to put the accusation aside with copious use of the elegant vocabulary his friends had introduced into the House of Commons. He was bound to enter the wit ness box and deny the charges against him most solemnly. How could Mr. Gladstone go before the country associated with men who refused to submit such a question to the judgment of an English jury; A FLOOD OF MISREPRESENTATION. .• 'UfcNwaW did uot believe in the Glad- Stone horoscope. The victory Mr. Glad stone obmbJfl in 1880 was won by a flood of misrepresentation that, could not lie re peated The Conservatives were now an organized party, powerful to refute false nood aud disseminate the trut h. This con dition of the party was largely due to the work of the Prii nrose League. The present government would, when it left office, hand down unimpaired to their successors the great trust of the empire committed to their care. {Cheers. ] Tbe Globe, of this evening, says that, Mr. Biggar will sue the Times for libel, and make that paper's articles on “Parnell fem and < rime, of the series of which the Par nell letter ws ti e culminating part, the basis of the action. MOTIONS FOR AN INQUIRY. Several Gladstone Liberals desire to have Parliament issue a summons to the editor j? die Timm calling him Indore the liar of toe House to answer for breach of privilege m accusing Mr. Parnell and other members r oe House of complicity in crime, or that air Gladstone propose the appointment of a committee to examine the Times' charges. A . ‘ srnellites have been consulted and their leaders oppose both propositions. If neither the Pornellit'i nor Gludstonians uke the initiative in moving for an inves tigation, it is probable that an independent motion will be made, which bah the gov ei nment and the Union members will sup port. 1 “COERCION” REPUDIATED, bowl Salisbury said: “We repudiate the onl coercion, because by long usage that appliol to repression of political opinion, nil which we have not hing to do.

Gladstone will find that on the Liberal side of the House the spirit of Englishmen has not quite disappeared, and that a leader to he followed must be a leader who can be trusted to stand by his opinions. PARNELL’S POSITION. “Mr. Gladstone thinks that Mr. Parnell's position is perfectly reasonable and honor able and that nobody ought to ask him to clear himself. If Mr. Parnell and his asso ciates were men absolutely free from sus picion in this matter I would understand that reasoning. But they belong to a party of which a large wing has worked by mur der and has been largely supported by the contributions of others w ho openly advocate political assassination. PARNELL’S FRIENDS. “Mr. Parnells trusted friends have mixed on terfiis of intimacy whose advo cacy of assassination is well known, and the language of Mr. Parnell and his friends in speaking of the fearful crimes that have been committed is not above reproach, being marked by indifference to, and even by tol eration of murder. When such a gravecase of presumption exists it is uot open for him to take refuge in a mere denial, or to think that he can dispose of the accusations by liberal use of the wide and energetic vocab ulary which his followers have used in the House of Commons.” AMERICAN SYMPATHY. Mr/ Gladstone writes: “I attach very high value and importance to the manifesta tions, now incessant, of American as well as colonial sympathy with the Irish people in the crisis created by the causeless, insult ing an.d insidious bill at present before Par liament, apart form particular and more or less formal acknowledgments. lam not of the opinion that it would be proper or expe dient for me to take it upon myself to ad dress a>\y general communication to Ameri cans on this subject, which, however, I have noticed and may agaiu notice in Parliament. Still, 1 am very anxious that the people of this coun try should have the means of understand ing how much beyond the range of any sec tional impulses and how truly national the movement in the United States has become, and in this view I would recommend that an endeavor should be made to present some estimate of the aggregate numbers of persons by which the recent meetings in America have been attended, and likewise and especially an estimate of the number of Governors, Mayors, Senators, Representa tives, clergymen, and other official or highly responsible persons by whom such meetings have been countenanced, or sup ported.’’ THE TIMES SHOULD PROVE IT. Sir William Vernon Harcourt, in a speech at East. London to-night,indorsed Earl Silen cer’s recent assertion that there was no evi dence which showed that the Parnellites had ever associated with criminals. He further said that in view of Mr. Parnell’s denial of the accusations made against him. it re mained for his accusers to substantiate their charges. The Parnellites are indignant at Lord Salisbury’s speech at Albert Palace and there is some talk of bringing his remarks under notice of the House of Commons. It is reported that as a result of the re iteration of its charges by the Timex an ef fort will lie made to bring the editor and publisher of that paper before the House of Commons and make them prove, if they can, the truth of the allegations made by them. The charges against the Parnellites were brought to divert attention from the real question. Mr. Chamberlain’s statement that Mr. Gladstone refused to modify his bili was unfounded. The failure cif the round table conference was the personal doing of Mr. Chamberlain and nobody else. GLADSTONE A TRUE STATESMAN. John Morley addressed an audience of 4,<XX) peiuons ait Wolverhampton this even ing. Referring to Mr. Gladstone, ho said that no other great leader had ever launched a great issue or fought for a great cause with a spirit so entirely forgetful of his own personality and so entirely shutting out the mean and ignoble considerations which seemed to affect ignoble minds. The crimes bill, continued the speaker, awakened tens of thousands of Liberals to what they did when they reflected Mr. Gladstone’s policy. He repudiated the accusation that the Liberals countenanced violence ami obstruc tion in Parliament, and tliat they allied themselves with men whose hands were stained with outrage. He reminded Mr. Chamberlain that ho in the Fortnightly Review for February. 1886. advised that the ParneDite leaders be taken into the councils of the Queen. The round table conference had been suspended because Mr. Chamber lain, though conciliatory in conclave, con tinued in speech find letter publicly to re vive old bitterness. UNIONIST BLINDNESS. H The Unionists proposed to settle the ques tion by ignoring five-sixths of the Irish peo ple and dubbing their trusted represeutati ves ruffians. On the general charge of com plicity in crime brought against the Par nellites, he had to say that the charge was fully stated before Parliament in 1883, when the Irish government, after the fullest in quiries, found that the accusation could not be substantiated. With regard to the latest, charge made by the Timex , until that paper explained how it obtained the letter and the grounds for believing it to be authentic, he should content himself with Mr. Parnell’s denial. On the fringe of every popular movement were some had men, but it was a mistake to call the Irish American home rulers the scum of tho earth. The Chicago convention had re sulted in the defeat of the party of violence. The testimony even of prejudiced witnesses was thut they had to deal not with ruffians, but with all that.was best anil most honorable and most country-loving among the masses of the respectable men in America. [Cheers. 1 In criticising the government's proposals Mr. Morley raised u laugh by saying that bankruptcy had ls‘<onio what gardeners call a "tardy annual.” CHAMBERLAIN’S ANSWER TO GLADSTONE. With reference to Mr. Gladstone’s speech at. the dinner of the Eighty Club last, night Mr. Chamberlain says that Mr. Gladstone has lieen iiiaivumtcty informed. He says he was unable to obtain from Mr. Gladstone u promise that he would make any impor tant modification in his Irish lull, but he uever advanced that ns the reason of the Iniltire of the round table <*onfcrrnce. He is not aware that any attempt was mail** by Mr. Gladstone to secure the ci>-o|>eration of the Lil'eral Util* mints oil any Liberal question outside of the Irish problem. Ila says it Is a I isms Ito Mip|s>* that while Mr. Gladstone refrains front indicating what modifications he is willing to make in Ills hill the Lilieral Unionists will assist tn restoring him to power.

Last even ing placards bearing representations of cross-bones ami coflins were posted in the List Owl, threatening with violence any man who should take a l'arm from which a tenant had been evicted. At Mayor Bridge to-day a woman re sisted eviction by barricading her house and throwing boiling water on the evictors, wiio retired without accomplishing their task. Three constables at Castle Island and one at Groom have resigned, and a demonstra tion in their honor will be held on Sunday. PITTSBURG’S PROTEST. Pittsburg, I’a., April 20. —At a large and enthusiastic anti-coercion meeting, held here to-night, resolutions were adopted pro testing against Ireland as a stop backward in civilization, as a stain on England, and an insult to the Irish people: also denounc ing the letter attributed to Mr. Parnell by the Guidon Times, which implicates him in the Phoenix Park murder, as a foul and ma licious lie. fabricated for the purwse of dis associating Mr, Gladstone and the Liberal party from Mr. Parnell and influencing pub lie opinion in England and thus insuring the passage of the '‘infamous coercion bill.” The meeting was attended by over 1,500 persons and included a large number of the most prominent citizens of Pittsburg and Alleghany, irrespective of nationality. Let ters of regret were read from Senator-elect Quay, Gov. Beaver, Lieut. Gov. Davies, ex- Gov. Pattison, Congressmen Boyle, Scott and Hall, and many others. SALISBURY'S MISTAKE. He Thinks This Government Chag rined at an Award. London, April 20.—1 t is officially stated that Lord Salisbury, in a dispatch sent to Washington March 24, said that the British government, understanding the action of the United States in denouncing the fishery articles of the treaty of Washington to be in a degree the result of disappointment at being called upou to pay VI, 100,000 under the Halifax fisheries awards, offers to revert to the old condition of affairs without pecu niary indemnity, which offer, it trusts, will commend itself to the American govern ment as being based upon that spirit of good will and generosity which should animate two great and kindred nations, whose com mon origin, language and institutions con stitute so many bonds of amity and con cord. BAYARD NON-COMMITTAL. Washington, April 20.—The Secretary of State declines to confirm or deny the state ment cabled from Loudon to the effect that Lord Salisbury has sent a dispatch to this government on the subject of the fisheries, offering to revert to the old condition of affairs without pecuniary indemnity. Sec retary Bayard also declined to express any opinion with regard to the subject matter of the dispatch as cabled, which is not ex actly news in diplomatic circles, the same proposition having emanated from a Cana dian source some time ago. ONLY A FEELER. Well informed persons incline to the opinion that the offer referred to has been thus indirectly and unofficially made as a feeler to ascertain in advance how such a proposition would lie received, as the repre sentatives of the United States on the com mission that negotiated the treaty of Wash ington, and the Halifax Commission which fixed the award made to England for use of the Canadian inshore fisheries, expressly denied that the privilege accorded to United States vessels of fishing in Canadian waters was more valuable than the concession made to Canadian fisherman of a like privilege ni the waters of the United States and free entry of their fish. THE DEPARTMENT’S POSITION. It is safe to assume that the State Depart ment never entertained the idea of renew ing the treaty of Washington with the un derstanding that a cash indemnity was again to be paid to Great Britain for the right to enjoy the inshore fisheries of Cana da. The negotiations with Great Britain on this subject are progressing, and the Hocre tary hopes that they will result in a har monious and satisfactory understanding be tween that country and the United States. Ho many applications for information and copies of the treaty of Washington have poured in upon the department since the ad journment of Congress that 10,000 copies have been exhausted and a fresh supply ordered FRANCE’S CROWN JEWELS. Wives of American Senators to Wear Some of the Glittering Gems. Paris, April 20. —The exhibition of the French crown jewels was opened to-day in the Louvre. The palace was thronged with visitors, mainly ladies. No one was allowed to stop and admire the jewels, but persons who were regard's! as possible purchasers could obtain orders for a private view. The rooms in which the jewels are displayed are beautifully draped. Orders from America, especially from the wives of United States Senators, indicate the probable destination of the greater part of the jewels. 10,000 Sovereigns Won by a Racer London, April 20.—The city and subur ban handicap of 10,000 sovereigns to-day at Epsom was won by Marry Duchem, with Carlton second and Caster third.

M. Herrick, President of the Pacific Pine Lumber Com pany, and E. C.

Mean while will you all allow t-hh roads over which we have been operating to give the old rates aud so revive our business with the East, provided the rate is open and available for all.” CALIFORNIA’S FRUIT INTERESTS.

The rest of the time before their departure they will give up to hearings, such as that or to-day in tlie case of Massa - chusetts when counsel were heard and wit nesses examined. Bhrewd observers of the leasings so far think that the Commissioners will decide finally against the railroads. BOSTON INTERESTS.

The burial of the International Working People's Association took place at No, lid Emma street in the presence of about fifty men who still re mained in the various groups. THE GROUPS REPRESENTED. “They were memliers of the Northwest,, Southwest and Southside groups of the International Working People's Association, of the General Committee, f lic central body of Internationalists, and of thp Lehr and Wehr Vereln.

His speech made quite an impression on the scared crowd. After he had finished one member moved that the organization l>e disbanded. Heverul speakers made a faint attempt to oppose the motion. The conservative again made an earnest ap peal. ‘You have no organ.’he concluded. ‘Yourname is mentioned with horror and contempt even by workingmen. If the lives of the convicted men now in the county Jail are dear to you, disband and lot ail past experiences he’ forgotten forever.’ The motion was finally submitted to a vote and carried without a dissenting voice."

Lincoln, Neb. , April ‘JO —There is a well defined rumor to the effect that the Union Pacific stockholders are quietly preparing to surrender the old Union Pacific mainline for the government debt, and abandon their Omaha and Council Bluffs termini, making several branches of the Union Pacific,which are owned by them independent of the gov ernment line, anew system of lines with Lincoln as their Eastern termi nus. The main feature involved in this plan consists of first, u through line from Lincoln to Denver, with a connection at Lincoln with the old lowa pool lines, and, second, the linking together of all the Union Pacific branches with this Lincoln and Denver line making, with the Oregon Short I fine and Denver and Rio Grande, a new system to lie called the Lincoln, Denver and Pa-ific, this to be con ducted under cover of the old St. Joseph and Grand Island road, which, it is definitely known, is owned by the old Union Pacific regime, who have never parted with control of the Union Pn rifle branch lines. It iR claimed that by the f ime Congress is ready to act upon the Union Pacific matter these lint's will rie completed, and thelTnlon Pacific, shorn of it-sbranches, will be ready to be turned over to the gov ernment as a white elephant.

The following is an extract from Mr. llepew's sjieech: President Arthur will lie distinx guithed Ivitb for wliat he did amt what he refrained from doing. The strain and intensity of public teeling, the vehe< liienreof the angry and vindictive passion:, of the time, demanded tile rarest of negativa as well as positive qualities. SENSIBLE AND STRONG. But, though not aggressive or brilliant, his adminurtration was sensible and stronfß and admirably adjusted to the condition* which created and attended it. He s{>oke> vigorously for the reform and of the civil service, and when CnugressJ acting upm his suggestions, enacted th law, he constructed the machinery for it execution which has since accomplished! most satisfactory, though us yet incomplete results. ON THE CURRENCY. On the question of currency and finance h<\ met the needs of public and private credit,: and the tiest commercial sentiment of that country. He knew the necessity for effi cient coast defenses and a navy equal to t.luj requirements of the age. He keenly felt tha weakness of our merchnut marltje and the total destruction of the proud position vb* had formerly held among the nvtritiiw* tia* tions of tin' world, and did whagfMcould te move Congress to wise and patriotic lpfeUlk *♦* - ■ GAINED IN POPULARITY. There has rarely been in the history of popular governments mi great, a contrast as' in the public appreciation of Gen. Arthur at the time of his inauguration and when he retired from offiee. The President of whom little was expected and niueh feared re lumed to private life enjoying in * larger degree Hum moat. of his predecessors the profound respect and warm regard of the fioople wii aou* distinction of party. He was n warm -her rted, B<v ft!, pleasure-loving man, but capable of the greatest industry, cud ranee and courage lie dearly loved 1 gratify his, but if lie thought the public interest - so reouired no one could more firmly resist their desires or their importunities.

HIS GREATEST AMBITION. He said to me early in his administration* “My sole ambition is to enjoy t.lie confidence of my roup try men.” Toward this noble ideal he strove with imdeviating purpose. Even in the mistakes Uo made could tie seen his manly struggle to be right. Once again in private station and resuming the practice of his profession, he mot cd among his fel low-citizen* receiving the homage and recog nition wliieb came ol their prole in the way lie had Isirne the honors aud administered the duties of the chief magistracy of the re public. _ LEPROSY IN LOUISVILLE.
