CARLISLE ON POLITICS.
A LOUISVILLE PAPES INTERVIEWS
He Explains that He Would Accept a
United States Senatorship if Offered
Him - A Belief that Tariff Taxes Will
Now he Reduced -Pratee for the
Louisville, Ky., May 3.—Hon. John G.
Carlilse arrived lie re yesterday from his
home in Covington. He comes to attend the
State Democratic Convention, of which ho
will be chairman. Ho is accompanied by
Mrs. Carlisle. The Courier-Journal to-day
publishes an interesting interview with
him. Mr. Carlisle spoke freely and showed
no hesitation in communicating the infor
mation desired. To a question as to whether
he would be a candidate for the United
States Senate to succeed Mr. Beck, he re
plied: “My relations, or rather my appa
rent relations, to the contest have not been
satisfactory to me for some time, and I have
intended to make a public statement, but no
proper occasion has been presented, and con
sequently I have said nothing.
WOULU ACCEPT IF ELECTED.
“Two or three months ago, [ said, in sub
stance, that although not a , candidate for
the office, I would accept it if elected by the
legislature. This was regarded as an an
nouncement of my candidacy. I am glad
of this opportunity to correct that impres
sion. I have 110 desire to go to the Senate,
and do not w ant my name considered in
connection w-itli the position. If lam to
remain in public life at all a seat in the
House of Kepresenatives is entirely satis
factory to me, and I can serve the people
there at least as well as in the Senate.”
As to the prospect for a reduction of the
tariff taxes by the next Congress, Mr. Car
lisle said: “I can only give you my opinion
so far as the House is concerned. The Sen
ate being a Republican body, i:o one can say
with accuracy what it will do. I believe
the next House will unquestionably pass a
bill to reduce very materially the customs
duties. Ido not, however, expect to see the
passage of such a bill as the revenue reform
Democrats would like to have, but I think
there will be a substantial reduction. You
see we have now arrived at a point in the
tariff agitation where a reduction of taxa
tion is absolutely necessary. The large and
growing Treasury surplus makes it neces
NO POSSIBLE ESCAPE.
“There is no possible way to escape it. All
mrthods proposed in that direction are for
the most part absurdities. The sentiment
for a reduction of tho tariff is growing
steadily, especially in the Northwest. Now,
coupling this growing sentiment with an
absolute necessity for a reduction, I think it
requires but little power of political
prophecy to assert with confidence that a
reduction must come. A bill reducing the
tariff must be passed, however, with the
help of Republican votes. The deflection in
our ranks caused by Mr. Randall and other
protectionists will put it out of the power of
the Democrats to pass a tariff revision bill,
unless they arc aided by leveauo reformers
from the Republican ranks.
ENOUGH VOTES OBTAINABLE.
“It will not be difficult to obtain a suffi
cient number of recruits, in my opinion.
The Republicans in the West and Northwest
are getting more nervous on the tariff ques
tion. In the Forty-eighth Congress all the
Republican members except one voted for
the Morrison bill. The gentleman who
failed to vote for us was not re-elected. At
the last Congress we got all but ono of the
Minnesota members. In the next Congress
the Democrats have three members from
Minnesota. This indicates the growth of
revenue reform. A Republican Senator
said to me a short time ago that the next
Congress must do something toward reduc
ing the tariff or there would be an opeu re
volt on the part of the people.
“I think there will lie no repeal of inter
nal taxes, and there certainly ought not to
lie. Yet it might occur in efforts to get
through a bill reducing tho tariff that some
compromises should lie made. Under the
circumstances, with tho division of opinion
mining the Democratic Representatives, a
compromise that was fair would be honor
able. In such a state of tho case the tobac
co tax might be repealed. I see Senator
Sherman talks about reducing the tobacco
tax. In my opinion if that taxis disturbed
it ought to be repealed. It is now Sc. per
pound, and it would look like trilfliug about
small things to simply reduce it one-half or
FAVORS ABOLISHING IT.
“It may as well be wiped out entirely. It
to true that the tax yields an annual revenue
of nearly $30,000,000, hut in order to get a.
similar reduction in the customs list it
might, be well to let the tax on tobacco go.
You will find that these reform Republicans
of wnom I spoke a moment ago are all op
posed to repealing internal revenue taxes.”
1 presume,” sakl the reporter, “that
President Cleveland’s administration is now
old enough for an observer to form an esti
mate of it. I would bo glad to know what
you think of it?”
NAUGHT SAVE PRAISE.
"President Cleveland,” said Mr. Carlisle,
'has given to the country a healthy, strong
and clean administration. He has’aetod as
no honestly believed for the best interests of
tlie country nd his party. He lias made us
a good President. I think he is the most in
dustrious man I ever saw. Ho certainly
works too hard. President Cleveland desires
nothing more than the approval of his own
conscience and the just commendation of the

* there not some just cause of complaint
concerning his somewhat .supercilious treat
of men who hold office under him?”
Rightly understood there is not. In

Eau Claire, Wis., May 3.—One of the
worst hurricanes, unaccompanied by rain,
ever known in this section prevailed here all

clouds of dust. Considerable damage was
(lone in the city by demolishing plate glass
fronts and signs, and in several instances

SIX JAIL BIRDS ESCAPE.
A Trusty Uses His Key to Gain the
Worcester, Mass., May 3.—Six men es
caped from the county jail here this morn
ing. George A. Barton, who was serving a
term for polygamy, had been trusted to
work in the corridors and cells, and had the
cell key during the day. Yesterday ho had
a fight with George French, and both of
them were put in solitary confinement in
a cell in which was also another man. The
fight was part of a plot. The three men, by
use of Barton’s key, which had been con
cealed in one of the solitary cells, opened the
doors and concealed themselves, and at mid
night when Fred A. Hammond visited the
cell they bound and gagged and locked him
in the cell. With Barton’s key three other
prisoners were let out. Thoy then went to
the guard room and secured a “jimmy”
and jnckserew which was kept in the
museum and returned to the solitary cell
where they could work without being heard.
They pried the bars of a grated window
7 1-2 inches apart and got into a passage,
where they tore the casing from the door
and entered the blacksmith shop. Here
they attacked another grated window, pried
the bars apart and got into the yard and
over the fence and made their escape. The
watchman was found at 4:45 o’clock. He is
not much injured.

house three miles from Vienna with his
dying wife yesterday, who, he said, had
been assassinated while sitting beside him

with attempting to kill her. He tells a
rambling story to the effect that
while returning home from a
visit to his wife’s father, they wore
overtaken by two men in a buggy, who fired
oil them, liis wife was shot in the back,
and he himself in the arm. His story was
so disconnected that he was put in jail. His

President of the Local Government Board,

Unionists did likewise.
A BREACH OF PRIVILEGE.
Charles Edward Lewis, Conservative,
member for North Antrim, in the House
of Commons this afternoon called the
House’s attention to the breach of
privileges committed by the Timex
in an article charging John Dillon
with having told a falsehood in his denial of
complicity with Sheridan. In this article
the Timex declares that “Mr. Dillon, in his
denial, had presented to Parliament a tissue
of Action he had never taken the trouble to
examine. Sheridan was simultaneously an
organizer of murderous associations and a
close companion of the leaders of constitu
tional agitations. Mr. Dillon,” the Times
continues, ‘ ‘homever convenient his memory,
can hardly have sueceded in entirely forget
ting their personal relations. What con
fidence can now lie reposed in his disclaimers
which show the best of the Parneilite party
to bo destitute of that quality which English
men prize above all othes's, an indispensible
foundation of character?”
AN INQUIRY MOVED.
Mr. Lewis continued as follows. “Those
wholesale charges of lying against Mr.
Dillon constitute a distinct broach of privi
lege. I move that the House take notice of
Philip Albert Muntz, another Conserva
tive, seconded Mr. Lewis’ motion.
Speaker Peel, answering Mi - . Dillon, said
that if the House decided that the article
quoted was a breach of privilege a motion
could be made calling the offenders to the
bar to answer for their conduct.
\V. H. Smith, First Lord of the Treasury,
on behalf of the government, moved that
the House adjourn in order that n-cations
of fact might be argued. '
DILLON’S FIERY OUTBURST.
Mr. Dillon said he desired to have the
question brought to an issue right off. He
denied the right of Mr. Lewis taking the
course of putting him on the defensive until
hie accuser was brought to the bar of the
House When the publisher of the Times
stood at the bar lie (Mr. Dillon) would prove
■ him as base and cowardly a liar as ever
existed. [Parnellite cheers.]
Mr. Sexton said the Irish party had been
challenged much lately, and been taunted
with not taking up the challenge. Now they
took it up and insisted upon an inquiry by
the House. [Parnellitecheers.] The House
should let assailed members have an inquiry
by committee. “Then,” said Mr. Sexton,
“let the Times bring forward its battalions
of forgers and bare. The Irish members
will prove that they have been subjected to
a system of moral assassination. They will
be able to fully justify themselves.” [Par
SIR HARCOURT POINTS OUT THE AIM.
Sir Williarn Vernon Haroourt said that
though ostensibly Mr. Lewis’ motion was
against the Times , it was in reality raised
for the purpose of attacking Mr. Dillon and
was a covert method of accusation by one
section of the members of the House against
another. Yet when the Irish members
asked for an instant opportunity of meeting
the charges, it was sought by the govern
ment to adjourn the Houso.
Mr. Holmes, Attorney General for Ire
laud, denied that the motion was made with
the connivance of the government. Ho had
never heard of the motion until ft Was
made. On behalf of the government he
disclaimed all intention of postponing the
debate for party purposes.
THE TIME TOO SHORT.
“If the publisher of the Times was at
once calleu to the bar of the House, the
House would Iks unablo to hear evidence in
support of the charge and would be re
quired to decide the question off-handed.”
Mr. Gladstone opposed the motion to ad
journ. He said Mr. Dillon had been charged
with having stilted a deliberate falsehood
while addressing the House. If anything
constituted a breach of privilege this was a
breach. The parties accused demanded a
trial. It was impossible that the House
could resist this demand.
It had always been the custom for the
House to proceed to deal without delay with
motions relating to a breach of privilege,
and afterward, in special cases, appointing a
select committee of inquiry.
A division was then taken on the motion
to adjourn, resulting in u vote of 313 in l’avor
of the motion ami ) 14 against it.
Mr. Smith moved that on Thursday the
House resume consideration of the question.
Mr. Sexton moved that it be taken up to
Mr. Dillon demanded to know whether
the editor of the '/'imex would be brought to
the liar of the House.
Mr. Smith could only say that the usual
course would lie followed. It was then
agreed to take the question up again to
ALL IN DOUBT.
The closo of to-niirht’s debate in the House
of Commons on the breach of privileges left
all sides in doubt as to tomorrow's develop
ments Mr. Lev/is brought forward tlio
question against the advise of the Cousorva
tivc whips, who warned him that it might
lead to great delay in the progress of the
crimes bill. Tho Ministerialists would like
to have a committee of inquiry appointed,
but foreseeing that the debate would
hlo"k the crimes bill, they are
reaily to let the question drop. The
Ministers had a conference to-night, with
Attorney General Webster and Solicitor
(fiark on the question whether the govern
ment could declare to-morrow that there
had Ixxm no broach, and that tho matter
therefore was at an end. If Mr. Hmith
should announce that no breach of privilege
has occurred, Mr. Gladston i is expected to
apiieal to the Speaker to decide to the con
trary and order that the publisher of tho
Times must avow his error and apologize.
Whatever luippens the Fame Hites foel con
fident of scoring a triumph.
A UNIONIST MASS MEETING.
A mass meeting of Unionists was hold at
St. James Hall this morning. Admission
was by ticket only. Homo rutcr* wore ex
cluded. Maj. Saundorson, speaking on
tho resolution affirming the n'—it-sMry of u
definite public disproof by the Parnolute* of
tho charges that they associate with mur
derers, said be hoped that Mvksix Labouchre
and Conylieare, when tho crimes bill passed,
would carry outthoir throat to goto Ireland
to preach seditiou. They would then have
to perform the only useful work of their
lives, breaking stones and picking oakum.
The resolution was carried with enthusiasm.
Mr, Gladstone, in a letter asking to Ik - ex
cused from at tending a meeting in favor of
the anti-vaccination movement gives as one
of his reasons the statement that lie is
busily engaged opposing compulsory iuuoc
uiation of the whole Irish nation v itli the
BIIENNON GETS A VERDICT.
The trial of the suit of St. John llrennon
against William Ridgeway, publisher, for
libel in accusing the plaintiff of being a Fe
nian and former ally of the Invincibles, was
continued to-day. Tho counsel for Mr.
Ridgeway said that bo was unable to call
witnesses who could prove his charges, be
cause in disclosing tho name of the writer of
the black pamphlet, in which the charges
were made, it would endanger his life.
Neither could he cal) tho detective from whom
ho had obtainod tiie information, because it
would involve tho disclosure of secrets
of the profession. The plaint iff had been
brought into court ns a stalking horse for
others who dared not appear. The counsel
declared that the black pamphlet was writ
ten by a Fenian whose destruction would lie
certain if. his name became known. Mr.
Brennon’s evidence showed that he had as
sociated with and assisted the worst dyna
miters in Paris. The counsel held this to
have proved tho case against him. The
Judge, in charging tho jury, said that the
defendant had not proved justification. The
jury returned a verdict tor tho plaintiff,
awarding him £5OO damages.
CHAMBERLAIN AT GLASGOW.
Glasgow, May 3.—Joseph Chamberlain,
in a spooch to-day said he would willingly
welcome Mr. Gladstone and his followers
back to “the old liberal paths.” He pro
tested that the new heresy (home rule for
Ireland) was not ancient lilxwnlism, but the
doctrine.- of a sect whose chief dogma was
the infallibility of their political Pope.
CHAMBERLAIN ON TARNELL.
Mr. Chamberlain, speaking at the Unionist
meeting at Glasgow, said the enthusiasm dis
played convinced him of the growth of the
Unionists. Although he had paid little atten
tion to threats that he would be received
with hooting, he confessed that lie
had not expected such welcome as ho had
received everywhere. Referring to the Par
nellites, he admitted that he had advised
that they lie taken into the council of the
government, but that, he said, was be
fore Farnell rested under the burden
of the present imputation. No man of
honor could be content to meet such
an imputation with a simple denial. The
Times was a journal which throughout its
career had never for sensational purposes
brought an accusation against any man,
but if Mr. Parnell shrank from taking up
the challenge and compelling the Times to
give its proofs, then every impartial, intel
ligent man would feel’ that Mr. Par
nell had put himself in a po
sition which made him no
longer a safe and proper ally for English
statesmen. [Cheers.] After repeating tho
complaint thut the Gladstonians refused to
meet the Unionists, he concluded, “Mr.
Gladstone by one word eoukl unite the
Liberals to-morrow, but unless that word is
spoken soon it will be too late.”

Oulianoff, son of a high Russian official.
During his trial he displayed tho highest in
telligence, and maintained a most dignified
bearing. Entering into a minute scientific
dispute with Feodoroff, the renowned
chemist, ho compelled tho latter to acknowl
edge that tho prisoner was in the right and
he himself In the wrong. At tho final sit
ting Oulianoff made a brilliant speech. He
declared that neither lie nor his companions
feared death. Ho could imagine nothing
more sublime than to die in an endeavor to
deliver tlio unfortunate Russian people.
Hundreds of young men would imitate nim
until tho Can l would be compelled to change
his despotic system. Tho prisoners, with

ANOTHER BATCH OF FISHERY
Canada’s Piscatorial Minister Armed
With a Bulky Volume on the Sub
ject of Contention- Secretary Bay
ard’s Proposals for Arriving at a
Settlement of the Voxod Question.
Ottawa, Oxt., May 3. —The Minister of
Fisheries brought down the fishery corre
spondence this afternoon. It is a bulky vol
ume. Much of the correspondence has al
ready appeared and it is only the later dis
patches which are of public interest. Fol
lowing the recent negotiations for a settle
ment of the dilflcultias, it appears that on
Dec. 3 last, Mr. Phelps, United States Min
ister at London, transmitted to the imperial
government a copy of an outline for the pro
posed ad interim arrangement, between the
two governments on tiiis subject, which had
been prepared by Secretary Bayard.
A MIXED COMMISSION PROPOSED.
After reciting the differences which had
arisen in regard to the treaty of 1818 Secre
tary Bayard proposed a mixed commission
for the following purposes: 1. To agree
upon and establish, by societies of lines
limits which shall separate the exclusive
from the common right of fishing on the
coast and in the adjacent water of the
British North American colonies, in con
formity wwu the first article of the conven
tion of 1818, except that bays and harbors
from which American fishermen are in the
future to bo excluded, save for purposes
for which entrance into bays
is permitted by said article, are
hereby agreed to be taken to be such 1 ays
and harbors as are ten or less than ten miles
in width, and a distance of three miles from
such bays and harbors shall bo measured
from a straight line drawn across the bay,
in the part nearest the entrance, at the first
point where the width dot's not exceed ten
miles, said lines to bo regularly numbered
and also clearly marked on charts prepared
in duplicate for the purpose.
2. To agree upon and establish such
regulations as may be necessary and proper
to secure to fishermen of the United States
the privilege of entering liays and hurlxirs
for the purpose of shelter and of repairing
damages therein, of purchasing wood and or
obtaining water, and to establish restric
tions to prevent abuse of the privileges re
served to fisherman of the United States.
8. To agree upon and recommend the ]>en
alties to be adjudged and such proceedings
and jurisdiction as may lie necessary to se
cure speedy trial and judgment for viola
tors of the rights and transgressions of the
limits aud restrictions which may be udopted.
AN AD INTERIM TRUCE. >
Pending a definite arrangement there was
to be an abstention from seizing United
States fishing vessels unless found within
three miles of the Canadian coast. Secre
tary Bayard further proposed that each
country should each send a national vessel

is also suggested that fishing vessels of the
United Htates are to have in Cauivlian ports
the same privileges ns other vessels

I<ansdowne forwarded the reply of the
Canadian government with regal'd to the
It says this reservation involves the sur
render of the exclusive right of fishing in
bays which have hitherto wen regarded as
beyond all question within the terri
torial waters of Canada, such, for
instance, as the right of fisheries in
the inner waters of Bayou des Chaleurs at
points forty or fifty miles from its mouth,
which, roughly speaking, may be less than
twenty miles wide at its opening. Article 2
prejudices in favor of the United States
one of the most iimmrtant of the points
which liavo lieon in dispute by deciding ad
versely to Canada the construction which
is to lie placed upon the imperial und Cana
dian statutes, tno proper interpretation of
which is at this moment the subject of liti
gation before the Canadian court. Article
3 was objected to as likely to lead to frus
trating the ends of justice.
Article 4 prejudices in favor of the United
States an Important question which has
arisen as to the commercial privileges to
which United States fishing vessel* are enti
tled while In Canada waters. The history
of the negotiations which preceded tlie con
vention or 1818 makes it perfectly clear that
the purchase of bait was not one of the
purposes for which it was intended that
United States fishing vessels rtioulil have
the right of entering Canadian waters. Sec
retary Bayard’s proposal* amount to this;
that the government of Canada is to submit
its conduct in the past and its rights In the
future to tho arbitrament of a coiumlesion.
Such on admission would involve public
renunciation of substantial uiul valuable
rights and privileges for all time without
any sort of equivalent and without any
compensation. 1 trust her majesty’s gov
ernment will discourage the Unit'd States
from pressing these proposals in their pre
sent shape, aud will avoid any action which
might induce a belief thut tlie offer em

The answer to this came in the form of a
telegram for Hu- Henry Holland under date
of lo b. 21. 1887, us follows: “Your din

feel it right, to intimate to you whilo en

To this Lord Isuisdowue answered under

MK. FUSTIC It'S ADMONITION.
Under date ofApril Id, Mr. Foster says;
“In reference to the letter of this depart
ment, dated March hi, 1886, I have to inti
mate to you that during the present season
and until otherwise ordered, you wall lie
guided by the instructions in that letter. I
have every reason to believe that these
have been executed with efficiency
and firmness, as well as with
discretion and duo regard for
rights secured by treaty to foreign fish
ing vessels resorting to Canada waters. 1
desire, however, to impress upon you that
in carrying out those instructions you
should lie most careful not to strain tho in
terpretation of the law in the direction of
interference with the rights remaining to
tho United States fishermen in Canada
wnt ts under the convention of I*lß. To this
end tho largest liberty compatible with full
protection of Canada interests is to bo
granted United Htates vessels in obtaining
iu our waters shelter, repairs and water.
Cain should Ik' taken that while availing
themselves of these privileges such vessels
shall not engage in any illegul practices, but
it is not deemed necessary that
in order to effect this an armed
guard should lie placed on board or that any
reasonable communication with tho shore
should not lie [lermitted. Blank forms of
entry and clearance are furnished to captains
of cruisers. These, on being tilled in, are to
lie forwarded by the captain of the cruiser
to the custom officers of the port within
whose jurisdiction they liavo been used. In
case of distress or of sickness on board any
foreign fishing vessel, all needful facilities
are to be granted for relief, and both you
and your officers will lie carrying out the
wishes of the department in oourteously and
freely giving assistance in such cases. The
above special instructions, while designed
with regard to the fullest recognition of
all lawful rights to which vessels are entiled,
are not to Ik) construed as authorizing a lax
enforcement of,the provisions of the laws
for the protection of Canada fisheries. Fish
ing, preparing to fish, procuring bait,
trading or transhipping of cargoes by
United States fishing vessels within the
three miles limit fare manifest violations of
the convention of 1818 and of the imperial
and Canadian statutes, and in these coal's
your instructions, which are explicit, are to
be faithfully followed.”
Outstanding Paper to the Amount of
SBOO,OOO Brought to Light.
Philadelphia, Pa., May 3.—The Evening
Telegraph to-day says: “The appraisers ap
poited by the court to ascertain the amount
of the assets and liabilities of the insolvent
drill of John & James Hunter liavo been zeal
ously engaged in performing that duty for
nearly a month. The disclosures made to
them in the prosecution of their work have
proved of a startling character.
Since entering upon the task, which
has proved a very arduous one,
they liave had returned to them
over $860,000 of outstanding pajK)! - issued
by James Huuter. This enormous liability
has come from every conceivable channel of
trade and finance, and tells in emphatic
language the story of James Hunter’s awful
perpleudty and utter ruin. In the mean
