ULTIMATUM FROM THE GOVERN
Gladstone’s Reply to Mr. Smith’s Ap
peal to the House—He Assures the
Government That the Present
Difhculty Can Be Surmounted by
Only One Method.
London, June 10.—In the House of Com
mons this evening, Mr. Smith moved the
resolution previously announced, requesting
that at 10 o’clock p. m., on June 17. the
Chairman forthwith put the question on
any motion of an amendment and proposal
touching the clause of the crimes bill, then
under discussion, then on the clause itself,
and finally on each remaining clause. He
urged that the step was forced upon the
government by the continued obstructions.
It was absolutely necesssary for the dignity
and efficiency of the house, that the deliber
ate attempts to prevent the progress of
business should be defeated. It
was now the fourth month of the
session and practically nothing had
been done. The whole course of the
legislation had been stopped. The govern
ment desired that due consideration be given
to the rights of the minority and a respect
shown for the traditions of liberty and free
dom attached to the institutions of the
country. [Derisive Parnellite laughter.]
the government’s duty.
But it was undoubtedly the duty of the
government, in circumstances without a
parallel in the history of Parliament, to call
upon the House to take measures to prevent
the minority from setting at defiance the
controlling power of the majority. It was
impossible for the government representing
a majority to yield to the obstruction of the
minority. The government might' be dis
placed by an adverse vote and then be bound
to appeal to the country. But while sus
tained by the majority of the House they
must carry on the business of th* country.
The debate over the crimes bill had be
come a travesty, bringing ridicule, disgrace
and contempt upon Parliament. He ap
pealed to the House to support the govern
ment in trying to restore order in their pro
Mr. Gladstone said that a longer notice
should have been given of this important
motion. The present state of busi
ness and the entire paralysis of Parlia
ment had caused intense dissatisfaction
throughout the country. But the position
had boon brought about by the government
themselves. [Cries of “Hear!”] Thev had
been pursuing the false and evil pol'icv of
coercion without the justification pleaded
on a former occasion. They had disregarded
all the usages and traditions of Parliament
in the conduct of a measure which they had,
under the name of the crimes bill, introduced
a measure which was directed against the
combination apart from any crime [“Hear!
Hear!’’] He would suggest "to the govern
ment that the rational mode to expedite the
bill would be to make it temporarv, instead
of permanent, and to dlrike out all the pro
visions touching the combination apart
from the crime, thus assuring the Irish
tenants of the same protection in
respect to their land strikes,
as is given the English artisans in their
labor strikes. [Cheers and cries of “No.”]
If the Government rejected that remedv.
and had no other to propose, the offensive
character of the bill would be retained in
full force. He did not wish to create any
difficulty by offering an opposition whicn
be knew would be ineffectual. He would,
therefore, content himself with protesting
against the course now pursued.
PARNELL EDGES IN A WORD.
Mr. Parnell said hi? could not understand
the fatuity of Uie government in rushing
blindfold along a road which they had
already seen would lead to the greatest dis
order in Ireland. The government speakers
had harped on the theme of “obstruction.”
Asa matter of fact the Irish members
had not lifted one voice against
any measure except this coercion
bill, which t hey were bound to resist to the
utmost. The cry of obstruction was not
genuine when raised by the men who did
not desire to advance the ] mblic business.
Lot the government pnxieed with the real
business of the nation, instead of wasting
time over the crimes bill, applying to a
nation where crime was admittedly at the
minimum. He concluded by moving
an amendment that the House decline to
sanction the resolution limiting the free
dom of deflate and assailing the rights of
the minorities. Several of the Parnellites
continued the discussion. Mr, Smith then
moved cloture, which was carried by a
vote of 284 to IG7. Mr. Parnell's amend
ment was then rejected by a vote of 301 to
181. There is a chance now of discussing
the original motion.
POSTPONED TILL MONDAY.
After some further discussion Mr. Smith’s
cpmplete motion was carried under the clo
ture. by a vote of 245 to 05, amid cheers
and counter cheers Mr. Smith then pro
po#d to jiostpone further discussion of the
bill in.the committee till Monday.
Mr. Healy asked that the discussion lie
proceeded with on Saturday, but Mr. Smith
said lie was unable to accept Mr. Healy’s
suggestion, because it would be unfair to
the oilieors of the House. Mr. Chance de
nounced the government for depriving the
1 ’nemellites of a portion of the available
tune for the debate in order that the minis
ters could append the naval review.
The motion to postpone the discussion iu
the committee until Moudny was carried by
a vote of 205 to 12.

FIGHTING FOR LIBERTY.
Only Ten Jurors Obtained in the Sharp
Trial So Far.
New York, June 10. —When court opened
this morning for the, resumption of the
Sharp trial, Judge Barrett stated that he
would not render his decision in the case of
young Vanderbilt, examined yesterday on
the charge of embracery, until Monday.
The work of the court commenced with
thirty-two names of the sixteenth panel in
the w heel, and the seventeenth panel in at
tendance to be called. Having
exhausted its challenges, the de
fense was particularly pertinacious in
insisting on exceptions to rulings of the
court regarding questions as to the consid
eration of the testimony of informers. The
reason for this is that the Court of Appeals
has held that an exception avails nothing
if the defense has unused challenges, but
should the juror be forced upon the defense
by unjust rulings after peremptory challen
ges are exhausted, a good case
on appeal is obtained. This will
throw light on the defense's action in avail
ing itself of all its challenges.
ONE MORE JUROR OBTAINED.
Rudolph Wolff, at 44 Walker street, was
accepted as a juror by both sides. This
filled the box. After the recess Martino
challenged Juror White, and the court
excused Juror Davidson. This makes two
vacancies. Seventeen hundred talesmen
have been summoned. Of this num
ber 1,037 were examined—twenty chal
lenged by the defense, fourteen by
the people, and six were exercised by the
court. Of the fifty talesmen temporarily
accepted ten remain in the box. Wolff is
the "only juror obtained to-day. He is a
manufacturer of paper bags and boxes.
Nine hundred names of solid citizens have
lieen taken from tax lists and placed in the
clerk’s wheel. The panel will be drawn

IRON MILLS CLOSED.
The Coke Strikers Cause 1,300 Chi
cago Workers to be Laid Off.
CHICAGO, June 10. —The blast furnaces
and the steel mills of the South Chicago roll
ing mill closed down last night on account
of the exhaustion of the supply of coke, and
1,800 of the 2,100 men employed were thrown
out of employment inconsequence. Theex
haustion of the coke supply is caused by the
strike now pending in the coke regions.
The rail mill will be kept running
till Saturday night, when that department
will also be shut down and the 750 men em
ployed there will be laid off. Three hun
dred men will be retained on the docks and
and in making repairs about the mills.
South Chicago has a population of 1,200,
and of these, 900 draw their support from
the rolling mill, their pay roll amounting
to $12,500 per month. As the employes, as
a class, are not provident, this will entail
great hardships. The moment the strike in
the coke region ends, the mills will resume

STORMY SCENES AT THE BODYKE
The Bailiffs Defied—Boiling Water and
Missiles Assail the Officers—Desper
ate Fight at Yesterday’s Evic
tions—Crowbars and Rifles Prevail
in the End Further Irish News.
Dublin, June 10. —The evictions at
Bodyke were resumed to-day and there was
a repetition of the exciting scenes which
have attended the numerous attempts to
evict the tenants. The Sheriff and his body
guard were stubbornly resisted at the house
of a tenant named O’Hallaran. A hillside
near the house was covered with an excited
mob, who cheered the defenders of the
premises and urged them to hold out,
O'Hallaran and his party had dug a trench
around the house and barricaded the lower
rooms, while the upper portion of the house
was occupied by ten men, including two
who had returned from America, and some
women. The bailiffs made an attack on the
walls of the house with crowbars, but were
received with scalding water and fled. An
inspector of the police, with a drawn sword,
then mounted a ladder placed
against tho side of the house
but, whs beaten down. A constable with his
rifle and fixed bayonet next mounted the
ladder, but his head was battered by the de
fenders. Several gashes were inflicted upon
him, and he retired. Another constable also
attempted to climb the ladder, but failed. A
second ladder was then procured and several
constables mounted it, but were beaten
down. A Mr. Cox essayed to climb up the
ladder to speak to the inmates of the house,
but the police prevented him from doing so.
Finally a constable entered with his rifle
and fixed bayonet, but his rifle was wrested
from him and his safety was imperilled,
when Father Hannan entered and secured a
cessation of hostilities. The inmates were
then arrested and the work of eviction was

the evietors, whereupon they were charged
by the police, who brutally beat several of
them with their clubs.

Rome, June 10. —In the Chamber of Dep

reconciliation with the Vatican. Minister
Zanardelli replied that no act of the govern
ment, or of any foreign power, justified
such a qeestion. He was opposed to
any conflict between religion and State,
but he would always have law
respected, and would maintain intact the
mission of liberty confided to Italy. Min
ister Crispi said the government was at any
rate not seeking conciliation, and had no
wish to know what was occuring in the
Vatican. The time had ripened, however,
for many questions that might lead to re
conciliation, which would never be detri
mental to the national rights.

WEEKLY TRADE REVIEW.
Dun & Co.’s Reports Show the Effect
of the Labor Troubles.
New York, June 10.—R. G. Dun & Co.’s
weekly review of trade says: But for the
labor contests and excessive speculations
the outlook would be entirely satisfactory.
The crop prospects and the financial situa
tion have both improved during the past
week. But the effect of the important
strikes is felt more seriously every week,
as the resources of the idle workingmen be
come exhausted, and the consumption of
the products by their,families and by the
various manufactories indirectly affected,
is diminished. How great the disturbance
of trade which may result from
singlo strike, is forcibly illustrated by the
returns of the iron furnaces in blast,
A REMARKABLE INSTANCE.
The Pittsburg accounts usually differ a
little from those published here', but this
month the statements vary very widely.
The Iron Age making the weekly output,
June 1, ttlxmt 37,675 tons, or 27 per cent, less
than on May 1, while the Pittsburg statis
tics, forwarded by our correspondent, make
the decreased output 3,065 tons. Either
statement represent* a remarkable decline,
ranging from $600,000 to *150,000 in the
value of the weekly production, and to this
must lie added the decrease in many impor
tant branches of manufacture, which de
pend upon their material on the
furnaces now idle. In spite of the
great decline, the prices have lieen weaker,
heavy sales of Southern iron having been
made in the eastern markets. The stove
business has revived, the lockout of the
moulders having terminated, but tho nail
market is demoralized by the over-produc
THE WHEAT SPECULATIONS.
Wheat speculation seems weaker, though
prices, after rising to nearly $1 for No. 2,
red, have not quite declined to last week’s
level. The crop reports from all directions
are favorable, and the accumulation of 2.800
cars about Chicago, still loaded, because
wheat room is scarce in the elevators, gives
a jsiint to the observation that a great quan
tity of wheat seems still to be left in the
farmer’s hands. The official reports show
net exports equivalent to 125,167,748 bushels
in the ten months ending with April, with
probably 11,500,000 more in May, but the
exports this month bid fair to fall lielow
those of last June. In that case, the sur
plus to lie carried over July will probably
exceed 49,000,000 bushels in addition to the
minimum always had on hand. Sales have
lieen only 20,000.000 bushels here, but Chi
cago exchange on New York, still 40c. to
50c. discount, shows that the speculators are
preventing the natural movement of money
Eastward at this season.
Accounts from the various sections con
tinue almost uniformly favorable. Rain
has helped the farmers throughout tho
Northwest. The stove moulders have re
sumed work at Detroit, though tho builders’
strike continues at Chicago. Money is re
ported in good supply at all points, and
collections everywhere good or tail - , with
improvements in some localities. The
tSouthem reports show a natural dullness in
trade, but confidence in an earl wand pros
perous fall business. From Northwestern
points great activity is everywhere reported.
THE WEEK’S failures.
The business failures occurring through
out the country during last week, as re
ported to R. G. Dun & Cos., number for the
United States 140, Canada 33, total 173,
against 150 last- week and 17 the week previ
ous. In the Eastern and Middle States the
failures are exceptionally light. In the
other sections there are aliout the average
number reported, but in Canada there is a
considerable increase, arising mostly in the
Burning Out Of the Western Union’s
Office at Pittsburg.
Pittsburg, June 10.—The First National
Bank building, a five-story structure on the
corner of Fifth avenue and Wood street, the
upper fiooi's of which were occupied by the
main office of the Western Union Telegraph
Company as an operating department and
battery room, was partially destroyed by
fire at 6 o’clock this morning. The fire
started in the operating room, and is sup
posed to have been caused by the crossing
of wires in the rear of the switchboard.
The flames spread rapidly and great diffi
culty was experienced by the firemen in
getting their ladders in position on account
of the network of wires. After a gallant
fight, however, the flames were subdued,
but not liefore the three upper stories had
lieen gutted completely, and the communi
cation by the Western Union Telegraph
Company with the outside world entirely
cut off. "All their fine machinery was total
ly destroyed and every wire prostrated.
Temporary headquarter have lieen estab
lished at the Mutual Union office, at the
corner of Wood and Diamond streets, but
their facilities for handling business are very
poor. Communication by telephone has
also been suspended, and all kind* of busi
ness, in consequence, is greatly retarded.
The loss at this time cannot lie’ estimated.
The building was one of the most imposing
in the city. It was built alxiut fifteen
THE LOSS OVER $70,000.
By noon communication was established
by means of the Mutual Union wires and
the Western Union branch offices in differ
ent porta of the city. The telephone wires
will not be in a condition to work for ten
days and it will be several weeks, jierhaps
months, before they will lie in ns good sliujie
as liefore. The estimates of the loss vary
greatly. The loss of the Western Union
Com [winy alone by the destruction of th
wires and machinery is $35,000. The direct
loss of the Telephone Company was placed
by the same good judge* at from $15,000 to
$20,900. The loas to the First National
Hank on account of the damage to the
building will lx' $15,090. The whole direct
loss closely approximates $70,000. There
were no casualties.

Unseen and Unknown.
Atlanta, Ga. , June 10. —The Board of
Visitors held their final meeting at the
capital to-day and submitted their reports
to the Governor. The State University re
port is common-place and conventional,
containing nothing of special interest. The
board compliments Administrative Chan
cellor Mell, and commends the university to
the support and patronage of the friends of
liberal education in the State The report
of the Atlanta University, colored, is an
abler and more ihteresting paper, with some
features of public importance. The report
goes carefully into the details of (he
instruction, making wholesome suggestions
here and there. There are twenty-four
teachers and attendance nearly 500 stu
dents. The majority is from Georgia, but
eight other States are represented, among
them New York and Massachusetts. A
striking and significant feature of the report
is a reference to the fact, that white pupils,
of various ages and both sexes, are. in at
tendance, and on entirely the same foot
ing with negro students. These generally
are more or less closely related to the tom Ji
n's or officials, but in. one instance, in no
way related. The hoard learned that it was
the avowed intention of the institution to
admit all white cliildron applying, and to
encourage it, thus striving to break
down the barriers to co-education of
the races, so well established by policy.
This the State board strongly condemns on
the ground that not only is it intrinsically
wrong, but contrary to our civilisation, and
the genius of our "institutions. The hoard
further asserts that the Atlanta University
is using the #B,OOO appropriated by' the
State directly contrary to the terms of the
appropriation and the spirit of legislation.
From tlie act of 1874 to the present year, it
charges a misuse of the funds, as they' are
appropriated solely' for the benefit of the
colored race. They call the special atten
tion of the Governor to this matter, and in
dicate between lines that it is a matter for

was a dismal failure and a matter of some
amusement over the city. A few of the

represented about #5OO of the liabilities.
The desire of the large dealers to
avoid publicity' is well illustrated
by one of the largest, who bad #OO,OOO
to his credit at the time of the failure who
sent word to Phelnn not to consider his
claim and not to let it be published. Mr.

said he would now make the only settlement
in his power. In profits and margins there

A Grocery Firm Arraigned for Selling
Liquor to a Drunken Man.
Columbus, Ga., June 10.— King & Daniel,
a prominent retail grocery Ann of this city,
were arraigned liefore Judge Smith to-day
under an indictment charging them with
selling whisky to a drunken man. Their
attorney, Hon. J. McNeill, demurred to the
indictment upon the ground that, the Geor
gia Legislature had never made it a crime
Si sell whisky to a drunken man,
but had paused an act that a man guilty of
this offense should be liable to the same jsin
altv os is inqsised on a retail dealer who
seifs whisky without a license. Mr. McNeil!
held that the legal definition of the word
“Penalty” was a money forfeiture, and
therefore it was not a eririiinnl offense under
law to sell whisky to a drunken man. In
rendering his decision Judge Smith sus
tained the demurrer, thus quashing the in
dictment. The caeo promises to be of much
importance in a legal view, and will proba
bly be carried to a higher court.

gram from Cedar Keys to-night states that
the Board of Health received a letter front
Sam Sota this morning announcing the
death of a refugee from Key West at Sara
Sota, and the landing of thirteen passenger*
at Sara Sota. Another schooner from Key
West with passengers is retorted at Sara

munication Is permitted from shore, as it is
feared the schooner has fever on board.

Monroe, Hillsboro and Manatee counties.

a sensation to-day by their retort of the
county jail, which they severely censured,

feet, which they considered a disgrarc, and
rerommended that the prisoners be at once
removed to the stockade and the premises
t>e thoroughly reconstructed.
The Board of Health received a telegram
this evening from Dr. Bruner, at Punta
Gorda, stating that the board of health at
that piare was unorganised, citizens keep
ing the quarantine. There were no funds
to continue, and unless funds Were furnished
the quarantine will be abandoned. The
sanitary condition of Punta Gorda is bad.
From there Dr. Bruner will continue down
the coast thoroughly inspecting, and will
report any negligence. Dr. Bruner's opinion
of Jacksonville is satisfactory.

PRINTERB IN CONVENTION.
Another Day Required to Finish Im
Buffalo, June 10.— The delegates to ths
Typographical Convention met promptly
this morning and settled down to business.
This is the flfth day of the session, and it
was generally expected to be the last, but it
was found that by far the most important
questions are yet unsettled, and it is not
likely that the business .yet to be transacted
can "be finished before to-morrow. Plate,
nine hour and apprentice questions were
still in committee and remained to be acted
on in secret session.
REPORTS OF COMMITTEES.
The committee appointed to visit the non
union offices in this city, endeavoring to ge4
them into the union, made their report yes
terday. The inference gathered is that ths
overtures were rejected.

labor, recommending the organization of
women and equal pay for equal work, which
The Committee on Constitution and By
laws re|K>rted unfavorably on abolishing
tho office of Chief Organizer, and favorably
that the time of holding the next meeting
be the second Monday in June, and also
that the salary of the Secretary and Treas
urer be changed from $1,200 to SI,OOO. The
rejwrt was agreed to.
In the Typographical Convention to-day
the Committee on the Nine-Hour Law re
ported a resolution that nine hours consti
tute a day’s work, ufter Oct. 1, in all offices,
except those of dally papers. Referred.
The Committee on Plates recommended
that the subordinate unions have power to
act; that the International Typographical
Union executive officer endeavor to ar
range with the manufacturers of the
plates not to furnish such matter
to non-union newspapers: that an executive
board of five be appointed to have charge
of the matter; that union printers
who, sanctioned by the Executive
Committee, strike against plates be sup
ported from the strike fund. After discus
sion, a motion to discountenance the use of
plates was voted down. The report was
all adopter! except the third clause A re
cess was then taken. At the afternoon see
sion the new officers wete sworn in.
A TREMENDOUS SECRET.
Immediately afterward Mr. Jackson,
of Rt. I/mis, moved that the convention go
into secret session for the re-eipt of a com
munication of such great importance that no
inan not Mwom to secrecy should listen to it.
Mr. Jackson’s manner was bo impressive
that the motion was carried. The secret
session lasted half an hour. The Committee
on Non-Union Offices reported, hut the
report was secret. Three times during the
afternoon the convention went into execu

to fill the vacancy. The International Typo

month, an application for the pressmen’s
charter. After a spirited vote the roll call
was demanded, a two-thirds vote being
necessary. Tlie vote stood 80 to 30, anil the

the Treasurer from paying the amount.
The case was taken to the Supreme Court

funds of the society could not be used for
any such purpose.
