I Evictions Continued Notwithstanding
the Showers of Boiling Water—The
“Thunderer” Keeps Up Its Denun
ciatory Articles—O’Brien's Level-
Headed Course Indorsed.
I Dublin, June T. —The evictions at
I were continued to-day. Tenaut McNamara,
I who was behind in his rent, defended his
I house, but the bailiffs broke a hole in the
I wall. Logs and boiling water were thrown
I through the hole at the force. A policeman
I who was holding the Colonel’s umbrella
I dashed through the opening, and the other
I officers followed him. A tight ensued, and
I the tenants were evicted and afterward
I arrested. The bailiffs charge the tenants
I with having thrown vitriol upon them, but
I this is denied. A tenant named Murphy
I also made a resistance against eviction from
I his holding.
THE LEAGUE THINKS DIFFERENTLY.
At the regular fortnightly meeting of the
I National League, held here to-day, the con-
I sensus of the opinion of those present was
I that the course of Mr. Davitt in advising
I the tenants to resist eviction bv everv means
I in their power was not wise. ’Timothy Har-
I nngton. Secretary of the League, announced
I that tiie organising council would implore
I tiie tenants not to allow anything to drive
I them to violence, which would be to play
I into their enemies’ hands. He, in his ad-
I dress to the League, quoted fully the closing
■ words of the speech made by Mr. Parnell on
I the night the Irish crimes amendment act
I was introduced in the House.

THE “TIMES” STILL WAXING FIERCE.
London, June 7.— The Times this morn-
I ing publishes another installment of its
I “Parnollism and Crime” article. Opposite
I its leader page, it prints a fac simile of the
I tenth page of the Irish World , of New
■ York, of Feb. 16, 1884, and also the greater
I portion of Patrick Ford’s address, published
■ m tiie same issue. The publications are ae-
I companied by an explanatory article de
■ scribing the various funds mentioned and
I the fate of the men connected therewith. In
I an editorial on the subject., the Times says:
I “The whole conspiracy, whether carried on
I by the mealy-mouthed gentlemen who
I sit at the London dinner tables, or by
I the foreign men who organize for arson
I and murder, is one and indivisible. It is
I paid out of the same purse, worked by the
■ same men, directed to the same ends and is
■ inspired by the one universal hatred of Eng
■ land, and a determination to bring about, if
■ possible, the complete separation between
I England and Ireland. Whether the money
I p>es to support Gladstonians in Parliament
I or to equip the desperadoes in the English
I towns is a mere matter of tactics. Wher
■ ever we find the constitutional agitators;
■ with their mask laid aside, as in the case of
■ Davitt, we find that their language and
I aims are identical with those of the ruffians
I by whose support they live, and whom they,
■ in Parliament, pretend to be ignorant of.”

BATTLING FOR IRELAND.
THE LEADERS PREPARING FOR
THE GREAT STRUGGLE.
Consultation of the Irish Loaders—
Gladstone in London —Sparring in the
House of Commons—Mere Pall Mall
Gazette Cases—Mr. Chamberlain Has
His Hands Full.
London, June 7. —In‘the House of Com
mons to-day Mr. Balfour, Chief Secretary
for Ireland, in reply to a question by Mr.
Dillon regarding the employment of the
gunboats to assist in the evictions on Clare
Island, declared that the government would
not hesitate to employ any of the forces at
its disposal to execute the decrees of
the law courts. W. H. Smith, in reply to
a question by Mr. Robertson stated that the
government was unable to inform the House
what measures besides the crimes act it
would proceed with. The progress made
with that bill was too slow to enable him to
anticipate when the measure would pass th
House. Possibly it might be his duty, but
he hoped it would not to take measures to
expedite the public business. He refused to
disclose the nature of the measures.
Mr. Odohertv having moved an amend
ment to the crimes bill, Mr. Parnell inter
posed, saying that, owing to the advanced
stage of the session and the large number of
important matters that had not yet been re
bated, he would suggest that "his friends
move only such amendments os they re
garded as indispensable. It was obvious, he
udiled, that the time would not permit the
discussion of the smaller points. Mr. Odo
lierty thereupon withdrew his amendments.
The next five amendments on the paper in
the names of the Farnellites were not
moved. An amendment to exclude cases of
treason and felony from a trial by a siieeinl
jury was defeated by a vote of 107 to 180.
Several more amendments were rejected,
the last with the aid of the cloture, the vote
being 219 to 93. Mr. Smith then moved
that clause 3 stand as part of the bill.
The Chairaian said that there were still
several amendments to be discussed before
he could put Mr. Smith’s motion. Three
further amendments were dlscuesed and re
jected, and Mr. Smith’s motion was then
carried—JH to 83.
GLADSTONE IN LONDON.
Mr. Gladstone airived at 6:10 o’clock this
afternoon. He was much fatigued. He
spoke at Newport, Gloucester and Swindon,
principally on the Irish question. At New
port. Mr. Gladstone addressed an immense
crowd. He ehaUenged the government to
facilitate the passage of the coercion bill by
giving the Irish combination the same pro
tection as the British combination, and
abandoning the insulting proposal of a per
manent coercion. Mr. Gladstone’s next slop
was made at Swindon. In his speech there
he invited his opponents to follow th 6 ex
ample of Wellington and Disraeli.and them -
selves propose what the country wanted.
If they did this, Mr. Gladstone promised
that they would receive the support of the
Liberals. Intense heat prevailed during
the homeward journey, and many persons
fainted in tho crushes at the various stations
where the train stopped.
MORE PALL MALL “GAZETTE” CASES.
Sinre the revelations made by the Pall
Mall Gazette and the passage of the crimi
nal law amendment bill the public have be
lieved the traffic in children to be impos
sible. The case in the Lambeth Police
Court has therefore caused a sensation of
universal horror. Edward Procknell and
three women were arrested charged with
keeping houses of ill repute, and with hav
ing procured for their patrons scores of
girls from 10 to 14 years of age. The pris
oners and their victims were all of humble
rank, and the evidence so far adduced
proves that the seducers of the girls belong
to the same class. The government will
prosecute the prisoners, all of whom were
remanded. Detective Stephens, who is in
the employ of the Reformatory and Refuge
Union and who has taken the principal part
in bringing to light these crimes, states that
during thr past four years he lias rescued
400 girls between the ages of 4 1-9 ami 14
years from lives of crime.

DROWNED IN THE CREEK.
DRUNKEN ORGIES OF A PARTY OF
Sporting Men and Women on a Picnic
Load Themselves With Whisky-
While in Bathing, Two Wpmen
Drown Before Their Drunken Com
Macon, Ga., June 7.—The news of a sen
sational tragedy, the scene of which was the
Seven Bridges, about four miles from the
city on the Houston road, reached the city
late this afternoon. This morning about 8
o'clock a party of men and women, the lat
ter being disreputable characters, drove in
hacks to the place named above, which
is the junction of Tobesofkee and
Rocky creeks, for the purpose of
picnicking and having a jolly time
generally. The party was composed of
late Lowenthal, Bon Meaks, Charlie Mc-
Allister, Henry Miller, all sporting charac
ters, and Jennie Scott, Flaggie Meaks,
Claude and Clio Thome. A liberal supply
of “John Barleycorn” was taken along, and
about midday the party were pretty well
“tilled.” In this intoxicated condition a
bath in the creek was proposed
and all joined in the movement.
While thus engaged Claude
and Clio Thorne, who were sisters,
wandered into deep water, and soon began
to flounder. They screamed lustily for help,
hut the men were either too drunk or too
indifferent to go to the rescue, and the un
fortunate women were both drowned. The
bodies lay in the water until late this after
noon, when some of their companions, honr
lg of the accident, went to the scone, and
recovered them. They wore brought to the
city to-night and prepared for burial. The
drowned women came here from Cleveland,
0., about six weeks ago. The affair pro
duced quite a sensation in this city.
THK MOORK TRIAL.
Macon, Ga., June 7.—The trial of W. A.
Johnson, one of the alleged lynchers of
James Moore, was continued in the Superior
Court. As on yesterday, the crowd was

Westcott, who identilled Johnson ns one of
the parties at the jail on the night of the
lynching, and who took a part in the affair.
Westcott said he bad a conversation with
him in the jail. Herman Bohnfeld also

fense introduced several witnesses who were
at the jail, who said they did not see John
son, and that he was not there. The evi

YELLOW FEVER NEWS.
The National Authorities Co-operating
with the Florida Boards.
Washington, Juno 7. —Acting Surgeon
General Stoner, of tlio Marino Hospital
service, yesterday telegraphed the President
of the Board of Health at Tampa, Fla., for
full information as to what measures have
been adopted at that city to prevent the
spread of the yellow fever. A reply was
received this morning saying passengers
from infected districts are detained in
quarantine fifteen days, their baggage dis
infected. Coast, counties, south of Tampa,
have also established quarantine against
Key West. In order bo insure thorough
fumigation of mail at Tampa employment
of extra help has been authorized.
NORSKS AND GUARDS PROVIDED.
The Secretary of the Treasury to-day
authorised the employment of six nurses
to attend the sick in the barracks hospital,
Key West, and four guards to protect the
property of persons remov'd to the hospital.

is also received. You may rest assured that
everything has been and will be done here which
your quarantine regulations demand and even
more. Not one person since your quarantine
commenced on May 10, has lieen given a certi
ficate of acclimation who was not known to be
protected from yellow fever and small pox. As
for the baggage, that has invariably oome Irvin
hoalthy localities in this city, or from some
place outside understood to as healthy as Ma

passengers for Tampa, one the American (ion

for t wenty eight years. The other passenger is
a priest from nere, and he was living in fine,
healthy house in the city. Ail dial baggage
was put in the hold and fumigated, though

It is to be greatly regretted that yellow fever
should have occurred in Key West, for that

scares the public there awfully, I am well
aware. It also gives any disposed to frighten
something to harp upon.
I am morally certain that the line is not in the
least at fault in consequenoe of that accident,
but that those cases of yellow fever wen caused
by a lot of old hotel furniture, pillows, mat
tresses, etc., which were carried over from here
during the winter. The hotel (Bolio’S) where
that furniture liad been used here liad had yel

lioiiing water has destroyed all vegetation
in the vallevs in the vicinity. One peculiar
feature of the volcano is its great activity.
Boulders weighing tons were hurled down
