SPRINGING THE TRAP.
MR. SMITH PROPOSES TO EXPEDITE
A New Move by the Government-The
Crimes Act Bill Amendment to be Ex
. pedited. Sound Advice to the Irish
9 People from “United Ireland”—fur
London, June o.—ln the House of Com!
mons this afternoon Mr. W. H. Smith, the
government leader, gave notice that to
morrow he would move that the committee
name a period at which they would report
the Irish crimes act amendment bill to the
House. The announcement was received
with great cheers and counter cheers.
AN KNOTTED THRONG.
Mr. Morley protested against so short a
notice. He toped the government would
postpone making the motion for another
day. [Cries of “No” from the Ministerial
benches.] Mr. Smith said he felt sure Mr.
Morley must have expected that the govern
ment would make such proposals. [Opposi
tion cries of “No!”] Mr. Smith then re
ferred to his statement in the House on
)Tuesday, in which he said possibly it would
become his duty to take measyres to expe
dite tho public business. Ho said the gov
ernment was unable, until to day, to finally
decide on what coui'se to pursue. The
terms of his notice would be on paper to '
night. He refused to name the period he
would ask the committee to fix for reporting
Mr. Smith then gave notice that at 10 p.
m. Friday, June 17, he would move that the
chairman forthwith put the question on any
motion of an amendment, or any proposal
relating to the clause then under discussion,
and on each reflrainiug clause of the bill.
Replying to a queston by Sir William
Vernon Harcourt, Mr. Smith said that it
was not proposed that these motions should
be carried by a particular majority, like the
rules of urgency.
Mr. Smith’s motion proposes that the
crimes bill be reported by June 17. The
Parnellites will oppose the motion by every
means in their power, alleging that it is un
precedented. The Unionists approve the
A CHANGE ALLOWED.
After the rejection of the several amend
ments to clause 4 and the application of the
cloture rule, Mr. Balfour moved that the
section providing for the removal of the
venue to London be omitted from the bill.
[Pamellite cheers.] He admitted that there
were strong objections to that provision
and said that as long as the ends of the gov
ernment would be attained they would not
show themselves obstinate as to the means
by which the ends were tombe reached.
They thought it wise and prudent to aban
don that clause in favor of providing
for a trial by the Committee of Judges.
[Cries of “Oh,” “oh!” and laughter.] Sir
William Vernon Harcourt declared that the
government would have been unable to have
faced the condemnation which the adoption
of the venue section would have brought
upon them. The present proposal, he said,
was a decent sham. Mr. Smith rose to
speak amid the Parnellite cries of “Cloture, ”
“Cloture,” and before he had finished his
first sentence, Mr. Healy moved that the
question be put. Mr. Healy’s motion was
agreed to amid loud cheers and laughter.
Mr. Balfour’s motion was then carried with
out a division.
THE GOVERNMENT YIELDS.
Mr. Balfour announced that the pro
vision for the Committee of Judges would
be included in the second bill, which would
be introduced immediately, embodying the
new proposals of the Government. [Loud
laughter and cheers.]
Sir William Vernon Harcourt congratu
lated the Government upon their new
method of saving time in the House. “Co
ercion bill No. 2, he said, “would probably
be so ridiculous that it would
require a third coercion bill to set it right.”
It is probable that to-morrow or Monday
the Pnmellites will raise the debate on the
evictions in Ireland. Mr. Gladstone, Mr.
Parnell and other leaders will sneak to-mor
row on Mr. Smith's proposal. If the debate
should be protracted the cloture rule will be
DAVITT DISCUSSED BY THE CABINET.
The Cabinet held a meeting to-day. lasting
an hour and fifty minutes. The subjects dis
cussed were the speeches made by Michael
Davitt in Ireland during the past fornight,

Dublin, June 9. — United Ireland. Mr.
Parnell’s organ, urges the Irish people to

who advocate retaliation for the oppression
of the Irish, and says that such a course
would undo the work "Mr. Parnell had ac

TERRIBLE BUFFERINGS IN HUNGARY.
Vienna. June The situation in the
flooded districts in Hungary is but little
changed. In some cases the rescuing parties
liave boon obliged to force people into the
boats, as they refused to leave their Rouses
and property, without which, as they ex
pressed it, their lives would be worthless.
Ihe women generally, through fright,
move about in a passive and apparently
listless way. In one case the rescuers found
a man about to hang himself. Marauders,
wading t hrough the waters at night, plunder
the houses found deserted. Several of these
have been arrested.
ON THE WARPATH.
Murderous Apaches Creating Great
Trouble in Arizona.
St> Louis, June 9.—A special from
Nogales, Ari., says: “The Indian outbreak
in this Territory is assuming serious propor
tions and widespread. The indications are
that there are many more than seventeen
bucks, as at first reported, on the warpath.
The whole country is fired with excitement,
and it is feared that parties will organize to
visit the San Carlos reservation. In such
event there will be a great slaughter.
Reports are coming in from all directions of
tue outrages. Word comes from W. E.
Leek, of Crittenden, that he and two others
were aroused yesterday morning by several
rifle shots mid found they wore surrounded
by the Indians. Mike Graoe, one of tho
party, an old pioneer and a highly esteemed
and prominent citizen of Arizona, was
killed. The other two made their escape
through a canyon, pursued by the assail
ants. The people of the country have ap
pealed to tile station agent at Nogales “For
God’s sake send us aid.” In fifteen minutes
a special train had soldiers on board in
charge of Capt. Lge.
ON THEIR TRAIL.
A portion of the command under Capt.
Nutt is on the track of the hostiles. His
courier reports that he ran into a party of
Indians, and is now chasing them over the
hills. They seem to be making for the
Patagonia mountains, and it is quite evi
dent that the ho3tiles intend *to reach the
Sierra Madre mountains.
A telegram from Calabasas to the Chief of
the Police at Nogales says that the Indians
fired upon McCuilock’s ranch, and are on
their way south. Another party is reported
southwest of Calabasas. Juan Ceneochio,
Commandant of Magdalena, has twenty-five
mounted men, who leave to day to try and
intercept the Indians at the principal passes
along the international line. Frank Wal
lace, of the Sonora Land Company, arrived
from the Montezuma district yesterday,
and reports that all the settlers along tile
route who are likely to be exposed had been
notified by Governor Torres that the In

brother of ex-Mayor Grace, of New York.
Wyoming Valley Experiences a Severe
and Destructive Storm.
Wilkesbarre, Pa., June 9.—Wyoming
Valley was visited by a terrific rainstorm
this afternoon. At Manticoke there was a
cloudburst which did great damage to prop
erty and created consternation among the
inhabitants. The water fell in great vol
umes, and in a few moments the streets
were entirely submerged. In many places
tho water was from two to four feet deep,
and as it swept along toward the Susque
hanna river in its course it dislodged several
residences. In Evan Morris’ house a tumble
down stove was upset and the building set
on fire. Thu fire department was called
out, and the flames were soon
sutidued. Morris, who is totally
blind, was rescued from the burniug
building with difficulty. The water also
entered the mammoth boiler house of the
Susquehanna Coal Company putting out the
fires in the nest of twenty boilers and stop
ping all the work in and about the various
mines. Thirty tenement houses were nearly
surrounded by water before the in
mates could make their escape. They
were, forced to go to the top of their
house for safety. After the rain ceased
they were rescued bv parties in boats. The
road bed of the Pennsylvania railroad was
washed out for nearly 300 feet, stopping all
trains for some time.

He Thinks His Side Should Be Given—
He Analyzes the American Patriot
and Freely Gives His Views on the
Questions at Stake—A Breezy Docu
New York, June 9 JohnMcMackin
writes to the newspapers to-day and makes
the following points: It is time that public
attention should be directed to tho gross
inconsistencies, not to say dishonesty, of the
leaders of the Irish cause, and of their pro
fessing friends and admirers in America.
One of the reasons assigned by Mr. O’Brien
for not attending the labor demonstration
on Saturday was, that his doing so would
“increase the difficulties” of Ireland
by “embroiling” the Irish leaders “in
“Why, then, should Mr. O’Brien ask the
Americans to embroil themselves in the
British or the Irish issues* If it be an im
propriety for Mr. O’Brien to attend a meet
ing in New York at which the American
landlordism is condemned, manifestly it
must be an impropriety for tho citizens of
America to take a part., either by contrib
uting money or by holding meetings, in
condemning the landlordism in Ireland.
Mr. O’Brien came to Canada to denounce
Lord Lansdowne for doing what
the American landlords do every day,
without a word of censure from the men
who dined Mr. O’Brien in the Hoffman
House. Mr. O'Brien admits that the land of
Luggacurran is the private property of
Lord Lansdorvne, just as his American
friends admit that the laud of New York is
the private property of the Astors, the
Rhinelanders and others. If New York
landlords may, as they do, demand
what rent they please' for the land
they hold as their own, and
evict, as they do, the tenants who refuse or
who are too poor to pay, why should not
Lord Lansdowne do the same? There are as
many evictions, in proportion to the popu
lation and as cruel evictions, in America,
as in Ireland. The land laws in Ireland are
as much more favorable to the tenants there
than the land laws in America.
two different plans.
In Ireland the tenant who thinks he is
over rented can go to the courts and get the
rent reduced. In America the tenant must
pay any rent the landlord chooses to fix or
go, For years the Irish cause has been sus
tained almost entirely by the funds supplied
by the Irish of America. All along we
were told that the money was asked for,
and was to be used in the work of abolishing
landlordism. Mr. O’Brien now tells us that
this is not what the Irish movement aims at.
He virtually says that they do not want
to abolish the landlordism, but to perpetu
ate it. They want a reduction of rent first,
and then the clearing out of the present
landlords to make way for other landlords
to take their places! If this is what Ireland
has desired and still desires, then the vast
sums received by the Irish League from
America, have been obtained on false pre
tenses. What is right in Ireland cannot be
wrong in America.
AMERICAN EVICTIONS NOT RIGHT.
We have not heard a word from Tam
many Hall or even Bishop O’Farrell in con
demnation of the brutal evictions a couple
of weeks ago in Pennsylvania, when scores
of families were pitched out of their houses
into the streets and obliged to remain there
all night, as the landlord forbade, under
penalty of eviction, any one to
give them shelter. Such a thing
happening in Ireland w-onld be in
dignantly denounced by the O'Donohues,
and Graces, and Kellys, of York,
but happening in ‘Free America’ those
‘haters of oppression’ have not a word of
censure or disapproval. ‘Apatriotin Ireland,
an Anarchist in America’ sterns to be the
form that applies to the position of the men
who have been shouting around O’Brien.”
Whisky Producers to Shut Down Till
Oct. 1, 1883.
Louisville, June 9.—At a meeting of the
Kentucky Distillers’ Association to-day a
resolution recommending the cessation of
the production of whisky until Oct. 1, 1888,
was adopted. At least 95 per cent, of the
producing capacity of the State was repre
sented. An officer of tho association stated
that there were now in bond in Kentucky
39,0tX),000 gallons of whisky of which
18,000,000 gallons were distilled in the last
year. There are 5,000,000 gallons in foreign
ports belonging to Kentucky men, and all
this makes the supply large enough to last
three years. He thought there would not
lie a drop of whisky distilled in the State
of Kentucky this year. It did not pay
because the supply was greater than the
demand, that prices were almost nominal.
The resolution just adopted would balance
things again and every whisky man in the
country would be benefited. The resolution
goes into effect July 1.

Chattanooga, June 9.—About 4:SO
o’clock this afternoon a tank of gasoline ex
ploded on tho first floor of a two-story brick
building near the northeast corner of Fourth
and Market, streets, and caused a disastrous
and fatal fire. The flames spread rapidly
and made their way into a two-story brick
building adjoining, on the south, tho
first, floor of which was occupied by
George J. Moreheing, a grocer. The Morgan
House, a three-story frame building,
north of where the explosion occurred,
"#) soon enveloped in the flames, and the
proprietor, Mrs. Smith, and family, barely
oseaped with their lives. Twenty-three men
who lodged in the house lost all their pos
sessions. The flames spread with remarka
ble rapidity, and although tho firemen
fought them bravely and contested every
inch, yet the fire gained steadily, lieing fed
with all kinds of Inflammable material.
BRAVE MEN AT WORK.
Henry Iler and Mat Peake, two nozzle
men of the Lookout Fire Company, nscended
to the ton of a burning building and were
doing noble service, when the rear wall fell
with a crash, burying the two unfortunates
in a mass of debris. A dozen heroic citi
zens and firemen, led by Chief Whiteside,
rushed to the rescue. The fire was raging
on all sides of them, and the walls were tot
tering, and tho men were shrieking
for their rescuers to flee for then
lives, but this appeal only caused their
efforts to be redoubled. Peake was buried
up to his chin in the hot debris, and a portion
ot his hand and bead were the only signs to
indicate where the men were buried. Peake
was rescued in an unconscious condition,
and will die from the effects of his terrible
burns and internal injuries. Iler was found
dead under the inass of debri.-. Humphrey
Reeves, manager of the Standard Gas Ma
chine and Economizer Company, was blown
out of the building across tho pavement
with liis clothes ablaze. He threw himself
into the gutter and extinguished tho fire,
but not until he was horribly burned. His
condition is dangerous, but not necessarily
fatal. James Reynold and W. D. Miller, of
Washington, D. C., two white men. and a
negro named Peter Jones were also terribly
burned by- the explosion. Several other fire
men were slightly injured and some were
overcome by the heat.
The Morgan House and the brick structure
occupied by the Gas Company were owned
by J. T. and C. F. Dufeler. The loss is $4,
000 and insurance about S2,OX). The double
two-story brick house on the corner and also
the one in the rear were the property of R.
