HARTINGTON TO TAKE UP GLAD
Tlie Government Debating on Its
Next Move—John Bright’s Opinion of
Gladstone-Evictions atßodyke Con

LonqON, June B.—lt is expected that the
Irish Land bill will reach the House of Com
mons next week and that the government
will ask the second reading of that measure
before taking up the final stage of the
Crimes bill. Lord Hartington will
speak at Manchester on June 34 with refer

JOHN BRIGHT ON GLADSTONE.
John Bright has written a letter in which
he says: “Sir. Gladstone, while in Wales,
spoke as though there was no province of
Ulster and no Protestants or a loyal Catho
lic population in Ireland. It is sad to see so
great a man descend to artifices so trans
parent to deceive his count rymen.”
Mr. Gladstone’s recent tour does not seem
to have forwarded the cause of the Liberal
reunion. The English Libeial Association
lias passed resolutions regretting that while
Mr. Gladstone makes minor concessions with
reference to his Irish bill of 1886, he adheres
to the plan for an Irish Parliament, and ex
pressing the conviction that his speeches .in
Wales will discourage the hope of the re
union, which the Liberal-Unionist® desire.
A CHANGE OF FRONT.
Lord Hartington and Mr. Chamberlain
had an interview with the members of the
government yesterday, and it is reported
Fhat the result was the dropping of the

UNIONISTS MAKING CONCESSIONS.
The Unionists are willing to support the
proposals to substitute for the change of
venue clause of the crimes bill a
clause providing for the trial by a
commission of judges. Mr. W. H. Smith
spoke at a banquet of the Constitutional
U nion last evening. He gave no indication
of the measures he proposed to adopt in re
gard to the crimes bill, but said it was the
government’s duty to press forward the bill
until a final verdict hail been obtained. He
gratefully acknowledged the sacrifices made
bv the Unionists in support of the govern
DEPLORABLE EVICTION SCENES.
Dublin, June B. — The gunboat Banter
took the Sheriff of County Clare and a body
of police to Clare Island to-day, where they
evicted twelve tenants. The scenes wit

the women were arrested.

Archbishop Walsh, of Dublin, in sending
to Mr. Harrington, secretary of the Irish
National ljeague, the £3OO which had been
forwarded to him by the Irish residents of
Kimberly, Africa, together with a letter
expressing the hope that the people of Ire
land would avoid crime, despite coercion,
trusts that the moderate councils of Parnell,
Harrington and other political leaders will
not be thrown aw "as long as the national
movement is kept within its present lines,”
writes the archbishop. “Irishmen may
safely defy most of the vicious efforts made
to slander them. At Rome, especially, may
they disregard, with the utmost confidence,
the efforts to persuade the Pope that the
Nationalists are revolutionists.”
DAVITT SAYS ITS “TIT FOR TAT.”
Mr. Davitt made another speech at Bodyke
to-day. He said he had received a letter
from Mrs. Davitt intimating that if he
should lie arrested she would speak in his
stead. He said that for the last eight years

English Govt rnors had given the Irish kicks

Early Mid-Summer Start of the New
York Republican Club.
New York, June B.—The Republican
Club of New York adopted a report this
evening, with only one dissenting voice,
which contained the following: “The confer
ence with the leadens of the Irish Americans
who voted for Blaine in 1884 discloses that
they will again vote for him and prefer
his nomination to that of any
other man.” A member moved to strike
out the attempt, to boom Blaine. He said
he voted for Blaine and would vote for him
a?ain, but lie deplored any direct in
dorsement of the candidate in ad vance of the
convention. Mr. Mahlon Chance ex
plained that the report simply stated facts
and that the manes of Foraker and Kherman
"ere suggested to the leaders. They, how
said they emphatically preferred
'>mmo as the only man who hud excited the
' [approval of their English enemies. They
not object to Foraker and Hherman, but

A Waterspout Causes Great Destruc
tion in a Pennsylvania Town.
Pittsburg, Pa., June B.—A special from
Johnstown, Pa., says the flood yesterday
was caused by a waterspout west of Hoov
ersviile, Somerset county, a village on the
line of the Somerset and Cambria railroad.
The village was entirely under water, and
the destruction of property is great. Many
thousand logs belonging to the Latrobe
Lumber Company passed here yesterday.
The bridges above here w r ere carried off.
" he Keeruville bridge was jiartly destroyed.
One at Coopersdale was entirely swept
away, as was one at Von Lumen’s, neartne
The destruction of property is enormous,
but the amount cannot be ascertained now.
At Hooversville the work of the flood is
appalling. Upward of twenty residences
were washed off their foundations and de
posited on the ground. At least 100 families
in this borough alone lost everything in the
lower story and cellars of their houses.
ruined homes and ‘property.
The water having subsided, the scene to-,
day is one of demoralization and ruin. The
yards and streets are blocked with the debris
and rubbish, and houses are filled up with
water. The merchants’ goods are filled
with sand, mud and water. Lots of women
and children are standing about weeping
and mourning over their ruined homes.
In Grubbtown, Conemaughborough, Mor
rillville. Minersville, Cambria City and
Coopersdale the same scene is presented, and
it is estimated that in the suburbs and in the
city 300 people were temporarily rendered
homeless and dependent for shelter on the
charity of their more fortunate neighbors.
No estimate can be made of the damage at
present, but it is thought that it will reach
$150,000 in this vicinity alone.
No lives, so far as known, were lost.

Mrs. D. J. Morrell, the widow of the Hon.
D. J. Mon-ell, died from heart disease about

Cooper, a wealthy and influential citizen of
Coopersdale, also dropped dead from over
excitement. He and Mrs. Morrell were
each about 65 years of age. A number of
other deaths from the flood are reported.
WASHINGTON BY WIRE.
Dismissal of the Only Colored Man in
the Signal Service.
Washington, June B.—W. H. Green, the
only colored man ever admitted to the sig
nal service, has been dismissed from that
service without a character. The only
significance in this order lies in the fact that
he is a colored man and is-the man over
whom Gen. Hazen and Secretary of War
Lincoln had a controversy. Mr: Green was
a graduate of a New York college and was
highly recommended, and the Secretary
overruled Gen. Hazen’s order. Green, soon
after the appointment, was assigned to duty
at Pensacola. The Sergannt in charge of
The signal office there refused to accept
him as his assistant, and was
courtmnrtialod and reduced to a private for
his disobedience of orders. Green was then
placed in charge at Pensacola, but did not
give satisfaction either to the signal office
nor to the community he served. He was
sent to Rochester, New York, where his
record has boon very unsatisfactory, and it
is stated that had he been a white man his
connection with the signal service would
have been summarily cut short a long time
before this; but they decided to give the
colored man every possible indulgence,
which led to his retention until his own con
duct necessitated his dismissal.
CAVALRY FOR VIRGINIA.
Upon the recommendation of Gen. Sheri
dan the Secretary of War has decided that
two companies of c-avalry shall be perma
nently stationed at Fort Myer, Virginia,
which has been abandoned since last sum
mer, when it was used as a school of in
struction for the signal service. It has not
been definitely settled what companies will
bo ordered there.
LAMAR FOR THE JUDGESHIP.

man, who talked with him about it before
he went away, to believe that he wopld ap

it. It is said by the friends of Mr. Lamar

these statements cannot be verified.

A TERRIBLE HOMICIDE IN CRAW
Neighbors Have Words Regarding In
truding Hogs and the Ever Ready
Shotgun is Used With Fatal Effect
No Verdict Yet In the Moore Lynch
Macon, Ga., June B. —Meagre details of
a most unfortunate homicide In Crawford
county reached the city to-day. Owing to
the distance from the city the account is
necessarily imperfect. From the most re
liable information obtainable it seems that
the affair really grew out of an old feud be
tween two families, who ure among the
best known and most highly re
spected in Crawford county. Yesterday
afternoon John C. Hancock discovered Bur
nett's hogs in his field and told Burnett to
remove them, at the same time going into
his house and returning with his shotgun,
saying that unless they were removed ho
would shoot the hogs. Words passed be
tween Jack Burnett anil his son, Jerome,
on the one hand, and . Mr. Hancock
on the other. They were standing
about sixty yards apart, and Hancock (so
the report says) opened fire on the Burnette,
a few shots striking the younger Burnett,
whereupon ho discharged both ban-els of his
breech-loading gun at Hancock, riddling
him with bullets and killing him almost in
stantly. Jerome Burnett is a. lad 1(1 years
old, and Hnnoock’s age is between 50 and 60.
NO VERDICT YET.
The trial of Johnson was concluded in the
Superior Court to-day. The court room was
[lacked to hoar the closing arguments in the
case. R. W. Patterson, in a lengthy speech,
that drew tears all over the house, appealed
to the jury for the prisoner. He was fol
lowed by Attorney General Clifford Ander
son, who, ns it is conceded by
everybody, made the effort of his
life. His arraignment of Johnson is
pronounced the finest, legal effort ever
delivered in the court room. The Judge's
charge was closely listened to. It covered
all the points in the ct.se, anil was lair and
impartial throughout. The case was given
to the jury at 12:30 o’clock. Late to-night
a verdict hail not been agreed upon. A mis
trial will preliably result.

nr. this list was made out aliout two weeks
Ixjfore the voting, and many paid after the
defaulters’ list was made, very few, if any,
convictions will likely be had.

Speculations Rife Concerning the New
Tallahass' e. Fla., June 8. —All man
ner of speculation is being indulged in as to
whom the Governor will appoint un the
Railroad Commission. Applicants are
plenty and persistent. It is quite probable
that the present Chief Justice of the State,
Hon. George G. McWhorter, will he one or
the Commissioners, as he desires to retire
from the bench. No better man could bo
found for the high trust.
Should Judge McWhorter resign, the
present Associate Justice, Hon. George I’.
Raney, would most likely be made Chief
Justice. It would not be surprising if Hon.
E. J Vann, of Madison, were appointed
to the vacancy that would be made by
Judge Raney's promotion. He hits recently
retired from the circuit bench, wljere lie
made an enviable record.

works are anxious to become organized, and
