THE MONTREAL PRESS ON THE
Tbe Gazette Condemns tlie Speeches
Made at the Toronto Meeting on Sat
urday—The Herald Also Condemns
Them, and Insists that Lansdowne
Should Answer O'Brien’s Charges—
O’Brien Elected Member of Parlia
Montreal, Can., May 16.—The proceed
ings and utterances at the Toronto meeting
of Saturday have provoked much unfavor
able comment among the government sup
porters here, who hold to the opinion that
the Toronto speakers went too far and have
damaged their own case.
The Montreal Gazette, Conservative, and
government organ, in a leading editorial
this morning on the Toronto demonstration,
says: “It must be said that some of the
speakers at the anti-O’Brien meeting at
Toronto were more earnest than wise. They
fell into ways that they themselves, in com
mon with a tremendous majority of the
people in this country, condemn in the
agitator, whose presence on the mission
he has taken up Canadians resent. Some
things were said before 10,000 or 12,000 per
sons gathered in Queen's Park on Saturday
that will rankle in the minds of other citi
zens, who, while not endorsing the policy
that makes the Dominion a battlefield for
Irish quarrels, sympathize with the other
phases of the movement with which O’Brien
is connected, and will feel that they have
been needlessly hurt by words that would not
have been called forth had wiser counsels pre
vailed, and the cause of the present turmoil
stayed at home. Thus there is danger of a
collision, and even though due care be taken
by the authorities to prevent violence,
there is almost sure to be a certain amount
of trouble through people’s taking sides in
the quarrel that had been thrust upon them.
lV’e sincerely hope that wherever O’Brien
determines on going he will be left in peace,
and that those who cannot justify his mis
sion will keep away.”
The following is an editorial in the Mon
treal Herahl , whose politics are Liberal, but
which opposed at the beginning O’Brien’s
invasion iilmost as vigorously as the Ga
zette itself. It is headed: “Wanted—The
Other Sidle.” It would not only be proper,
but it seems absolutely necessary that the
statements made by O’Brien in regard to the
treatment of the Luggaeurreu tenants
should be met and negatived
if it is possible. Landsdowne does not ap
pear to have had knowledge of these trans
actions. His agent, of course, may be said
to represent hiui, but with his lordship on
one side ot the Atlantic and negotiations
proceeding on the other between the agent
and the representatives of the tenants it
might well be assumed that the negotiations
might go on and be disposed of before Lana
dovvue would bo informed of the de
tails. But for the eviction of large
bodies of poor people from his estates Lord
1 .atisdowue is responsible, and the whys and
wherefores of such action are ns debatable
in his case as in any other case. The fact
that lie is Governor General of Canada sup
plies no reason for silence. The question is
Hgitating the Engiish-sileaking people of
Britain, Canada and the United States. It
piatters little how or by whom the agitation
is brought about, very serious accusations
Rave been made. If they affected the
Premier of Canada they would have to be
assumed. The}- ought all the more to be
met and answered where directed against
ihe Governor General of Canada. The
question is: Arc these things true?”
WHAT O’BRIEN SAYS.
Today everybody is talking of what is
likely to occur at Toronto when O’Brien
lets there. Speaking of the Orange mset
ng there, O’Brien, full of gladness, said it
was the best thing that could have hap
“Why,” said he, “with Lord Lansdowne
row it is a case of ‘save me from my
friends.’ Haven’t the Orangemen got him
”*d his case into the same stew that bigoted
iittie Tory Charles E. Lewis got the govern
ment into the other day in relation to the
’harges of the London Time?, which lio in
sited should be summoned to the
tor of the House of Commons, and
men, to his astonishment and
a the consternation of the government,
*'ho united in vetoing the motion, found the
proposed action supported by the whole
orceof the Irish party? Personally lam
f lighted at their most extravagant utter
uices, and personally lam fearless. I pre
luded that Prof. Goldwin Smith would at
ast find his level, which prediction is ful-
Mlcd, as I see he was one of the most bian
ant speakers at the Orange meeting. If
uiy differences existed among the National-"
Hs of Toronto the publication of Archbishop
-coke's letter has swept it away and
laused them all to uni tans one mau.”’
NEWSPAPER MEN ON HAND.
The army of Now York newspaper men
vho are with O’Brien have been increased
ny reoortei-s from the Chicago papers, and
ncy are all so thoroughly prei >ared for a
dot in Toronto that they will be disap
an.t®d if if should not come off.
The presence of Ernest Derosier, a lead
ng trench Canadian, at yesterday’s meet
ng here in St. Patrick’s Hall, and his stir
mg anti-Lansdowne speech and the prom
, ,°i La Justice to supply French aid to
Jeiend O’Brien if necessary, causes public
eelnig to be decidedly in favor of O’Brien.
o'biuen’s view of a riot.
O’Brien says a riot during bis tour would
five such a tremendous lilt to the Irish
jause that he fenre it w ill not take place.
Much as the Orange riots in Belfast served
toe cause of home rule, much more would
•range riots in Toronto serve i he cause of
■ , .Lansdowne tenantry. Ho is of the
pinion that Lansdowne knows this and
Uayor Howland, too, and that both will
rork lard to preserve the peace. But the
. st lmd schemes are disarranged when pas
uons are arousod.

After a Private Funeral In Washington
His Body Is Removed to Newark.
T\ a tint noton. May 16.—The United
States Supreme Court assembled at noon to
| day. The Chief Justice announced the
death of Justice Woods, whose chair was
draped in mourning, and said that as a
mark of respect the court would adjourn
until Monday next.
The funeral of Justice AVoods took place
at his residence here at 8 o’clock this even
ing. It was a private one, and only invited
friends and members of the family were
present. Near the coffin were gathered the
President and all the members of the Cabi
net, Justices of the Supreme Court, Gen.
Sheridan, Admiral Porter, ex-Justice Strong
an t Gen. Sclienck, who served with Justice
Woods in the army, lu the parlors in the
rear were seated Senators Morrill, Sawyer,
Blair, Dolpli, Pugh and Eustis, Gen. Green
B. Raum, Gen. H. \ T . Boynton, officers of
the Supreme Court and others.
At the close of the services the remains
were taken to a special car on the Balti
more and Ohio road to be removed to
Newark, 0., for interment. Several of the
Justices go with the family to Newark.
JUDGE WOODS’ SUCCESSOR.
It is certain that the successor of Justice
Woods wrill boa Southern man. It is cer
tain that he will be a comparatively young
man, for the reason that the Senate Judici
ary Committee has determined to report ad
versely the nomination to a judgeship of
any man who is nearing the statutory age
for retirement, The President, too, believes
in putting vigorous, growing men on the
bench. Of course no one has presented the
matter to the President formally as yet.
But this docent delay wiii
not continue long. The names of
candidates will be presented to the Presi
dent as soon as the funeral of Justice AVoods
is over. It seems to be generally regarded
as fitting that the successor of Justioe
Woods suould come from Georgia, since
Justice Woods was himself appointed as
from that State.
If Georgia would present one and only
one name, solidly supported by all her Sena
tors and Representatives, and that was the
name of a first-class and comparatively
young man, lie would stand a very good
chance of getting the place.
Senator Colquitt, who is here to-day, re
ceived telegrams from the friends of ex-
Congressman Hammond, of J. T. Gienn and
of Clifford W. Anderson, urging him to
present their names. It is understood, how
ever, that Glenn is not a candidate. The
latest suggestion outside of Georgia is that
of ex-Senator Howell E. Jackson, of Ten
nessee, now a Circuit Judge, who has all
the necessary qualifications, and stands
very high in the estimation of the Presi
HONORED AT MONTGOMERY.
Montgomery, Ala., May 16.—Judge

KING OF THE BOODLERS.
Jacob Sharp’s Trial Begun-A Great
Crowd iu Attendance.
New York, May 16. —A greaterowd tried
to get into Judge Barrett’s court this morn
ing to hear the opening of the Jake Sharp
trial. It was so large thatthe officers finally
decided to admit only talesmen, lawyers, re
porters and others connected with the case.
Promptly at 11 o’clock Sharp came into the
court, followed by ex-Commissioner RoUin
M. Squire, and accompanied by his counsel,
Messrs. Stkl-ney, Fullerton. Nelson,
Parsons. Mitchell, DuPignac and Bird. He
took a seat in the same place where boodle
Aldermen Jaehne. O’Neil and Cleary sat.
Placing his crape-bound bat ou the table be
fore luni. he leaned far over to catch the
sound of everything that was said. District
Attorney Martine and his assistants, Fellows,
Nicoll, Semple and Davis, were in their
seats early, and at 11:15 o’clock Martine
moved in a low voice that the trial of Jacob
There w as some talk about the trial of one
of the several defendants alone, aud Mar ine
stated that counsel for Kerr and for Rich
mond had each elected that their clients be
tried separately. Sharp's counsel acknowl
edged that tbli was so.
SELECTING A JURY.
The poll of special jury panel was then
called and quite a large number of jurors
were examined, who proved to be unsatis
factory to either prosecution or defense.
Altogether fifty-four talesmen were exani
anied before the adjournment of the court
this afternoon and at night but one seat in
the jury box was occupied.
Nine candidates for the box
were excused for lack of ordinary intelli
gence or inability to understand English.
One made the most of his position as ]x>U
_clerk and claimed his privilege of exemp
tion from jury duty. Two or three were ill
aud the remaining forty all escaped jury
duty through their more or less firmly
l ooted bias.
A MANIAC’S DEED.
He Wounds One Man and Kills Another
and is Then Shot Dead.
New Orleans, May 16.—Saturday night
Raymond Butch, overseeer of the AVood
luvvn place, Plaquemine parish, forty miles
below here, was shot through the legs by an
insane man named Williams. The musket
with which the shooting doue, was loaded
with buck shot and both of his legs were
badly lacerated. The wounded man was
brought to tlie Charity Hospital where he
is now being treated.
This morning the Sheriff, accompanied by
George Osmond, editor of the Plaquemine
Protector, started out to arrest the maniac.
When they approached Williams he opened
fire, shooting Osmond through the neck, it
is thought fatally injuring him. Tho
Sheriff then pursued the maniac, who took
refuge in his house. The house was set on
fire, and when AVilliatns came out he was
i shot dead by the Sheriff.
George Osmond is a native of England,
and is well known ip this city. About two
years ago, while editor of this Hancotte, lie
was attacked in his office by J. L. Houston
and Robert Brewster. Pistols were freely
usixl, and each of the party was wounded.
Brewster was shot in the body and died a
few days inter.

WHAT WAS DONE IN THE OLD
Progress of the Coercion Bill—Pro
posed Modification of the Land Bill-
Discovery of an Immense Treasure
in India-Affairs in Germany and
London, May 16.—Lord Harrington to
day had a long conference with tho Marquis
of Salisbury, W. H. Smith and Mr. Gosclien
with a view to hastening the passage of the
coercion bill. The proposal of Smith
that the House adjourn for AVhitsun holi
days from May 24 to June 6 leaves the llouso
only four nights for debate on the coercion
bill before adjournment, as all other sittings
will be occupied with estimates. It is
doubtful whether the first clause of the coer
cion bill can be passed before tho adjourn
AN IMPORTANT AMENDMENT.
Sir AVilliam Vernon Harcourt proposes
an important amendment to the bill, ex
empting from secret inquiry all proceedings
relative to public meetings or agrarian
movements, including combinations to ob
tain reductions, of rent.
The Gladstonians will make this a test
amendment. If the government accepts it
the bill will be permitted to progress, but if
the government refuses every possible de
vice will be used to obstruct the measure.
TO MODIFY THE LAND BILL.
The government will modify the Irish
land bill in the House of Lords. The
original clauses enabled solvent tenants to
apply for reduction of rent under an appeal
in bankruptcy. It is now proposed as a
substitute that joint application be made
for a bankruptcy order ‘by both landlord
and tenant, and further that the court be
empowered to stay an eviction without
declaring bankruptcy by granting an exten
sion of time for payment.
AN ATTACK ON BALFOUR.
AVhen the credit for the civil service came
up for consideration iu the House of Com
mons to-day Mr. Dillon led in an attack on
the appointments of Balfour and Col. King-
Harmon, charging the former with incom
petency, neglect of duty and contemptuous
treatment of the Parnellites. Mr. Dillon
was supported by Campbell. Bamiemian,
Fowler, and Harrington. Mr. Balfour re
plied that it was a difficult thing to the Par
nellites, who complained that his salary
was too large, while Col. King-
Harmon received no salary at
all, and that ho knew nothing about Ireland,
while Col. King-Harmon knew too much.
Smith defendevl the appointments. Tho
subject was then dropped.
In the discussion ou the coinage Goschen
said he was averse to proposing the adoption
of the decimal system.
CONDEMNED THE COERCION BILL.
Sir George O. Trevelyan, sixuiking at the
banquet of the Eighty Club tonight,
strongly condemned the coercion bill as un
just and exasjierating to the Irish. He said
that what divided the Liberals w r as not the
question of granting home rule to the Irish,
but of granting them liberty. Although
the text of Gladstone’s bill was dead, the
spirit of generosity toward Ireland
still existed. The speaker Warned the
Unionists for adopting an attitude of hos
tility before they knew whether the Glad
stoiiians would accept their conditions.
He believed that there were not more than
twenty Liberals who desired to exclude the
Irish members from Westminster, and that
there was not one who was not
willing to give up the point to secure the
return of Harrington to the Liberal ranks.
He concluded by declaring that the Liberals
wanted the Unionists to rejoin their old
party and would pay an honorable price to
get tnem back. The speech created a sensa
tion in rite lobbies of Parliament. The
Home Rulers regard it as a triumph for the
IMMENSE TREASURE DISCOVERED.
The Financial Secretary of India has ad
vised the government of the discovery of
an immense amount of treasure estimated
at over $3.5,000,000, which had been secreted
in the Palace of Gevalior by the lato Ma
The treasure had been sunk in pits under
vaults beneath Ze.-ena, and the secret was
entrusted to a few confidential servants.
The secretary was present when the treasure
was unearthed. After removing earth to a
depth of six feet the workmen uncovered
great flagstones. Beneath these stones were
several pits filled to the brim with silver,
chiefly freshly coined rupees.
In each pit was a plate recording the
amount of the treasure and the names of of
ficials who had assisted in secreting it. The
government has taken the hoard as a loan
from the young Maharajah. The native
papers protest against this action of the

Chicago, 111, May I(l.— The initial step
in securing a complete lockout of all carpen

hours work or nothing. The carpenters
were unaided in stopping work. Their re
turn to ten hours a day was dis
cussed in a recent meeting of
the Master Carpenters’ Association,
but was fiuuliy laid upon the table. The
present state of affairs shuts out all car
lieuterx at work upon brick or stone build

frame buildings. Hence, the only way to
secure a complete lockout of those laborers
is to demand a retium to the long day.

PRIVATE LAND OWNERS.
ARCHBISHOP CORRIGAN ON THB
ERRORS OF THE DAY.
Land Ownership Not a Fallacy—Every
Man Has the Right to Acquire Prop
erty—The Pope Does Not Interfere In
Matters of Politics-All Bishops Must
Be Obedient to the Government Un
der Which They Live.
New York, May 16.—Arch Bishop Corri
gan made his canonical visitation to the
Church of Sacred Heart this morning. Low
muss Vus celebrated, at the conclusion of
which the Archbishop spike on popular
errors which he said were widely prevalent

the Idea that private ownership
of land was unjust. This idea the
Archbishop characterized as a fallacy,
agoin.-it botli philosophy and common sen se
and as against the teachings of the Catholic
church. Those who claimed that land, like
sunshine and air, was the free gift of God
and equally the property of all, overlooked
the great difference that the sun and air
cannot become private property as can
right to acquire propertt.
He declared that every man had the right
to acquire by honest means as much prop
erty us be could, and cited the Indians as an
example of the disastrous results of a free
land policy. He also said that the idea was
in direct opposition to a decree of the Pope,
and that those who favored it knew that
they were ini ringing on an ordinances of
The second error which tho Archbishop
wished to coniliat wns that the Pope had the
right to command and urfie obeyed only in
matters of faith and morals, and when
speaking as infallible. This Men
lind lieen decreed false by tho Vati
can Council, who had ordered that “if any
one should say that tho Pope had the light
to command in matters of faith and morals
and not in discipline, let him be anathema
The Pope, however, does not interfere in
matters of jiofftics unless the government in
terfere in matters of conscience, and he has
warned nil Bishops and Archbishops that
they must lie obedient to the government
under which they lived.
