Loss in Hungary.
London, June 2. —Mr. Gladstone has
Started for Wales where he will deliver a
series of addresses in favor of home rule
for Ireland. The Standard says the Radi
cal conference marks the turning point in
the political history of tfce country. Mr.
Chamberlain’s speech was one more im
portant and decisive than hitherto made by
any Liberal Unionist.
Mr. Chamberlain, responding to an ad
dress presented to him by the Liberal
Unionists of Manchester to-day, warned the
working classes against the falseness of
Gladstone’s statement that home rule was
an issue between the classes aud the masses.
It was not the classes that would suffer
most by the success of Gladstone’s
policy. Such success would destroy the
country and ruin the working classes. He
believed the majority of the people were
now so well aware of the dangers menacing
them that the next general election would
result in an overwhelming disaster to the
GLADSTONE’S HEARTY WELCOME.
Mr. Gladstone arrived at Swansea this
afternoon. He was enthusiastically wel
comed at all places at which the train
stopped. Mr. Gladstone made six short
speeches in reply to addresses, after which
he excused himself, as his voice was
fatigued. At a few places there was a slight
hissing when the train stopped. Mr. Glad
stone arrived at Swansea in good health.
He will spend to-morrow driving.
PARNELL IN BETTER HEALTH.
Mr. Parnell has returned to London much

He Leaves Boston Quietly With a
Parting “God Speed "
Boston, June 2.-William O’Brien, Den
nis Kilbride aud Charles Ryan, of the Dub
lin Freeman's Journal, left Boston this
morning for New York by the 11 o’clock
train on the Boston an* Albany ruilroad. A
dozen or more admirers gathered at the
depot to bid the visitor “good-by.” There
was no demonstration of any kind, owing to
the heavy rain, as well as to the general im
gressiou that. Mr. O’Brien would not leave
; oston until this afternoon or evening.
New York, June 2.—An immense crowd
filled the Academy of Music this evening to
welcome Mr. O’Brien. Among those present
were Mayor Hewitt, ex-Mayor Grace, Bishop
Farrell, of Trenton, N. J.; Vicar General
Smith and Gen. O’Beirne. Mr. O'Brien, in
the course of his remarks, said: “I am more
aud more astounded at the extraordinary
extent of American sympathy. I tell
you candidly that I fell pained and grieved
at the praise that you nave so eloquently
showered upon me, for we know
that our humble efforts for
Ireland would not have been much only for
Lansdowne’s action has been a more success
ful apostle for the Irish people than we can
over he. Our feeble voices would only have
told the simple tale, but Lansdowne’s deeds
and Lansdownc’s mob have told tfie tale all
the world over. We had some horrible
moments in Canada, but that experience
will lie lightly on my memory when 1 re
member that those incidents have illus
trated far more elaborately than
thousands of my speeches could
the true character of landlordism in
Ireland, and what a terrible thing evictions
are, as are being perpetrated in Ireland to
day. There is no man who loves liberty or
justice in the civilized world who does not
know what a powerful force we are fighting
against. How does the case stand between
us and Lansdowne to day? Lansdowue has
said everything he can say through the
papers, and we have convicted him of hav
ing laid waste the whole stretch of
country, laying it bare of men, women
and children, a country where in forty
years not a single crime has been commit
ted. We have convicted him of this, which
he has committed rather than a bate one iota
on his rack-rent. We have convicted
him of that, without any statement
by Kilbride or myself. We have
convicted him by the very land commis
sioners appointed by the Tory government
and out of the mouth of his own agents. I
venture to think that John Bright [Howls
and hisses]—l speak of him with sorrow,
rather than in anger—l regret that his life
is ending in bitter winter, rather than in
the glorious sunset in which Gladstone’s is
“He (Bright) disapproves of my mission
to Canada, in the same breath as that in
which he calls Gladstone a traitor. I am
not sorry to be in such company. Lans

here to convict him, out of his own mouth,
of the crime we have charged him with. It
he has men in Canada to carry out his
diabolical work, If their law can be called
upon to stop us from denouncing him, I will
do it on the free soil of America. Lans
downe started for Toronto the same day we
started for Canada. He insnired those who
canned out his outrages, and those were the
men who yoked themselves like jackasses to
HIS BODY GUARD.
“I charge him here with that crime to
night. We went to Canada with four
representatives of the New York press with
us. These men were literally and truly our
saviors. The mob would have trampled us
to death but for the powerful shield of pro
tection thus thrown over us.” Mr. O’Brien
closed with a review of the Irish question,
and predicting the ultimate success of con
ciliation over coercion. Mr. Kilbride, an
evicted tenant, a companion of Mr. O’Brien,
Letters of regret were read from Gov.
Hill, ex-Gov. Headley of Ohio, Archbishop
Corrigan, Roseoe Conkling, and others. A
series of appropriate resolutions of welcome
were then adopted.
A LIVELY VOLCANO.
The Intense Heat Keeps Curiously In
clined Parties at a Distance.
Tombstone, Ari., June 2. Senor t ’antpa,
who has just arrived from Nacesari, states
that authentic news has reached Oposura
that at the time of the first earthquake a
volcano broke out on the Chihuahua side of
the Sierra Madre mountains Mar Piedras
Verdes, and about, thirty miles west of
Casas Grnndes. Different parties, number
ing some thirty persons in all, have gone
from Casas Grandee to ins|iect the volcano,
hut owing to the intense heat they have been
unable to approach nearer than within three
miles of the mass of molten lava, which
pours down the mountain side,
and which is estimated to extend
fully ton miles from the crater of the vol
cano. Dense volumes of smoke are emitted
by day and night, and the glare by night
from the burning mountain is visible for
long distances. Gov. Torres, of Sonora, has
directed that a party he sent from Oposura
to inspect and report upon the phenomenon.
A slight shock of earthquake was felt here

All the McNeill Station Train Robbers
Chicaro, June 2. —A special from Austin,
Tex., says that John and Cheod Craft, Ike
and Bill Ussery and Charles Buckley, the
alleged McNeill train robbers, had a hear
ing before the United States Commissioner
yesterday. Buckley, to the astonishment of
the other men, turned States evidence, and
before he got through with his testimony,
disclosed that he was in the employ of
the Sheriff of BexarJ county, and
had been for some time. He
had been detailed to watch the men, and he
and they had planned to rob a bank at
Ruling, a town on the Sunset route. This,
however, was abandoned, and on May 4
they planned the McNeill train robbery. A
fellow named Hall was the captain of the
gang. He and Craft, Ussery and others,
not Known to Buckley, committed the rol>-
Iwry. Buckley was hot with tin gang. The
robbers' was to occur on May IS, but for
some cause was delayed until May 18.
Buckley, who is a very bad man himself

A PRECARIOUS FOOTING.
Heavy Opposition to M. Rouvier on the
Left Entrenchment Proposed A
Doubtful Scheme for Revenue—Dis
inclination to Discuss the Army Bill—
The Paris Relief Fund.
London, June 2.—The Paris press com
ments indicate that in the Left groups there
are 150 Deputies solid against M. Rouvier,
and, therefore, that he will be unable to in
crease his Republican majority of elevon;
and any measure that would alienate the
support of the Right would make the Cabi
net’s extstence precarious. M. Rouvier
hopes to effect the retrenchment of
from sixty to eighty million
francs from the estimates of tile Ministers
of War. Marine and Public Works. He
also hopes to gain 4,000,000 francs by the
establishing of a revenue police to repress
the practice of domestic distilling which is
extensively prevalent in Normandy. The
success of the scheme is doubtful as the
NormanD.eputies will refuse to support any
measure likely to deprive them of their

In the Chamber of Deputies to-day Bishop
Freppel moved that the debate on the army
bill be postponed until the next session.
The question wa< a dangerous one, he said,
from a foreign point of view, and France
should not exhibit the weakness of the anny
now while under the full work of reorgan
ization. Premier Rouvier declined to al
low any postponement of the debate.
He said that the government
intended to maintain the measure as a neces
sity in the interest and for the honor of the
country. [Applause from the Left and
Centre.] The motion was rejected by a vote
of 44fi to 60.

A PARIS SENSATIONAL RUMOR.
Paris, June 2. —It is rumored that in the

Clemenceau snubbed Gen. Fen-on, the new
Minister of War, who, he said, formerly
stigmatized the promoters of the Tonquin
scheme as criminals and now- entered tnoir
service. Gen. Ferrou, according to the
rumor, thereupon assured M. Clemenceau
that the government would order the evacu

NO EXTRA SESSION OF CONGRESS.
The statements to the effect that the Pres
ident made up his mind liefore he went
away to call an extra, session of the next
Congress for October, and so informed his
Cabinet, are without foundation. The
President will not call an extra session of
the next Congress unless it U absolutely
necessary. He does not wish to do it at all.
Nothing hot a necessity growing out of the
financial condition of the country would
move hini to bring the next Congress here
before December. He talked it all over
with Secretary Fairchild before he went
away, and came to tho con
elusion that whatever tho future
might bring, there was no such necessity ill
the present. The President will probably
wait until Die end of next month before con
sidering the question again. By that time
the effect of the contraction of the circula

the surplus revenue will begin to be appa
V A TARIFF REDUCTION.
One thing may he regarded as certain In
this connection, and that is, that the admin

chase of the 4 1-2 per cents, of 1891 in
anticipation of their maturity. It will
suggest to Congress whenever it meets a re
duction of the tariff tax as the best means
of reducing the revenue in very much the
same recommendationa as ivom sent to Con
gress last year. Both the President and
Secretary Fairchild believe in reducing the
duties on necessaries and the raw materials
of the necessaries first. Both think that the
first reduction should be in the war taxes on
A HAPPY BENEDICT.
All Go a Fishing to Celebrate the Mar
Saranac Inn, N. Y., June 2.—The anni
versary of the wedding day of the Presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland dawned beautifully
at Saranac Inn. At sunrise there was not a
breath of air stirring and the surface of the
lake clearly reflected every tree, hill, moun
tain range and cloud. But at ft o’clock,
when the cottage party came over to the
hotel to breakfast, n breeze had sprung up
from the west and the white caps were run
ning in the bay just off of Prospect Point.
When Mrs. Cleveland sat down to break
fast sho found a little cluster of four-leaved
clovers at her place. She and the President
were heartily congratulated upon the anni
versary and were wished ail manner of hap
piness and good luck. At 10 o'clock, after
smearing their faces liberally with fly
ointment, the President, Mrs. Cleveland
and Dave Cronk went off in one boat; Col.
and Mrs. Lamont&nd McCaffrey in another,
and Dr. and Mrs. liosman in a third, to
sj;>ond the day at Holt's pond, about three
miles distant. They took lunches and
unless the flies aud mosquitoes m ove ton
annoying, will remain all day. When they
return the cottage of the President will
probably be decorated in a simple manner
to recall to its occupant*’ memory the cere
mony that took place in the Blnti room of
the White House just one year ago.
AN ENJOYABLE DAT. *
Mrs. Cleveland soon caught the flrst fish.
She also caught the second, landing it after
a long struggle. The lunch was eaten in
picnic fashion, and after the meal there was
more fishing. A heavy shower came up at
4 o'clock, which put ap end to the sport
after Mrs. Cleveland hail taken five fish.
The President's luck was transferred
to his wife, for he caught
nothing. Mrs. Cleveland’s first, fish
was a seven-pounder. Mrs. Lament.
Col. Lament and Mrs. Rosman were also
lucky in making catches. They reached

Heavy Damages in Campbell County,
But No Lives Lost.
Fairburn, Ga., June!!.— A terrible cy
clone passed a few miles south of this place
between 7 and H o’clock last night,
carrying destruction In its path. Crossing
the railroad alsiiit one mile lielow Palmetto,
it took a southeasterly direction, tearing
down the gin house of Mrs. Hi-akk-n and
scattering the timlier in its course in every
(liivs-tlon, Reaching the plantation of Mrs,
Collingsworth, it swept away the dwelling
and outhouses, Vmt, luckily, injuring no one.
Next, in its course was Mrs. Hudson’s, where
it tore away the dwellings, outhouses and
fences, but harming no one. At the planta
tion of T. H. Jenkins are the most fearful
evidences of its work. The house, a
large, one-story building, wa* literally
torn to pieces arid scattered for some dis
tance around, even blowing down the rook
pillars upon which it rested. But, strange
to say, not one of the family, some six or
seven in number, were hurt, with the ex
ceptlon of a few slight bruises, notwith
standing the fact, that they were blown in
different directions from 50 to UK) feet
from the house. The uext place in its path
was tile cross-roads, where it blew ((own
every house, four or five in number, and
three ladies barely escaped with the lives.
The house which they occupied was blown
down and scattered for half a mile. The
ladies happened to lie in a portion of the
house where there were two or ’three
barrels and they protected them from the
failing timbers, About one half mile fur
ther it swept away a comparatively new
church; known as ‘‘The Rock," aa if it had
lieen but a feather.
Upon reaching this point it seems to have
spent itself, as no damage was done any
further. A regular hail storm then ensued,
which ruined a groat deal of cotton and
com. The hail stones fell as large as hen's

“At last night's meeting of District

the Chicago Knights of the expulsion of

them against receiving any traveling carifi
from thnt assembly. No action was taken
and the document was very coldly received.
Another and an extremely interesting cir
cular is being received by the secretaries of
all assemblies in this city and all over the
United States. It emanates from District
Assembly No. ISM, and is an appeal for as
sistance and revenge,
After reviewing the facts as above stated
from their standpoint, it charges General
Master Workman Powderly and the Gen
eral Executive Board with criminal incom
petency and hints broadly at corruption.
fSiv specific violations of the constitution
are alleged. The circular concludes with
an appeal to all the assemblies to arise and
deimse Powderly and "the corrupt and in
efficient gang” with whom he has surround
ed himself. From every indication the ap
peal will be met with a hearty supports
from many of the Chicago local assemblies.
The antagonism to Mr. Powderly is not con
fined to the Socialists, and in this fight
Socialism is not involved. It
is tile inevitable struggle be
tween the mixed assemblies and trades
unions. District No. 40 represent* the for

claimed, is tlie increase of the Master Yvork
