ARE TENANTS COERCED*
CHARGES MADE 3Y THE G’CALLA
He Claims the Tenants Desired to Pay,
But the National League Forbid
Sentence of the Evicted Tenants on
Trial for Resisting the Officers -Riots
at Ennis Station.
London, June IS. — The agent of the
O’Callaghan estates at Bodyke, which have
been the scene of the recent evictions,
writes to the Times stating that almost all
of the tenants hold under leases at judicial
rates made by the land courts. They jwiid
their rent regularly until the National
League incited them to demand the IK) per
cent, reduction. Even then many of the
tenants paid their full rents secretly and had
their receipts dated back prior to the league
mandate, arid some went so far as
to implore that ejectments he served
On them, although they had paid all, in
order to avoid the league's vengeance. “The
whole resistance,” the agent says, “was
due to the action of the tenants. In the
final negotiations nineteen tenants offered
to accept the proposal to pay £3lB in lieu of
the £902 due, but Father Hannan declined
the offer on behalf of the tenants.” In con
clusion the agent says: “I have not the
least doubt I could have, effected a peaceful
settlement, but for the mischievous inter
faience of outsiders."
PUNISHED FOR RESISTING OKFICEES.
Dublin, June 18.—Several of the tenants
arrested at Bodyke for resisting the oUlcers
sent to evict them have been sentenced to
prison at hard labor for terms ranging from
one to three months. After being sentenced
they were taken to Ennis Station under a
heavy escort of police. Crowds of sympa
thizing people gathered and cheered the
prisoners, and became so demonstrative that
the police were ordered to charge and dis
perse them. This they did with a will and
plied their batons so vigorously that several
f the people were severely injured.
THE REICHSTAG CLOSED.
The Emperor’s Message—Sentence of
the Alsace-Lorraine Suspects.
[Copyright 1887 by the Xew York Associated
Berlin, June 18.—The Reichstag, having
to day disposed of all the business remaining
on notice paper, Herr von Boetticher read
the imperial message, closing the session.
The message expressed the grateful appre
ciation with which the Emperor regarded
the labors and decisions of the Reichstag
whereby the defense of the empire and its
financial position acquired that strength
and solidity which were the primary condi
tions of peace, as they were also of
the empire’s general development. The
message, concluded as follows: “You have,
by your diligent and faithful labors justified
the confidence with which the country sent
you here in order to promote and assure its
welfare and peace.” When the reading of
the imperial message was concluded the
members separated with three cheers for the
Last week's work in the Reichstag was
not able for the celerity and dispatch with
which the business was disposed of, the
members showing a decided desire to con

THE ALSACE-LORRAINE PRISONERS.
In sentencing the Leipsie prisoners to day,
the President of the court referred to the
object of the Patriotic League as being
plainly a reconquest of Alsace-Lorraine by
an armed force involving a war of revenge.
Therefore, persons becoming members
shared the designs of the league, and, if Ger
man subjects, were guilty of high treason.
In taking the milder view of tne position
of the accused the prosecution desired to
believe that they were unaware
of the significance of their acts. The
mildness of the sentence correspondswith the
tone of the imperial procurator through
out the trial. Bleichow’s two-year
sentence, was through his avowal that be
was a friend of Gambetta and a share
holder in the Bepublique Francaise.
Hchifmache, it was shown, also supplied the
funds to the French papers.
Koecblin’s letters, anticipating the recov
ery of Alsace after the death of the Em
peror helped to secure his conviction. The
usual number of press representatives were
present for the German court. Most of the
journalists in attendance were Germans,
although facilities were also granted the
French and English press.
The papers still talk of Emperor
William’s going to Gasteiu in August, but
all idea of Ids presence at the West Prussian
manoeuvres has been abandoned. His physi
cian forbids another indiscretion like his
Kiel journey, and orders that the Emperor
henceforth undertake no duty that will in
volve any strain upon him, or the chance
of exposure. Count Bismarck's rheumatism
has affected his joints. Before going to
Friedricharuhe he was only able to walk,
painfully, with the aid of a cane in each
hand. He will go this summer to
Vissengen for the sake of the
waters. The officials of the chancellerie
expect a prolonged period of diplomatic
calm. Prof. Virchow’s report of his analy
sis of the growth removed from the Crown
Prince’s throat fails to quiet the public
anxiety. The report is written for the medi
cal profession in technical language. Pub
lic interest centres in the con
cluding passage of the report,
in which Prof. Virchow affirms a favorable
prognostic so far as his analysis went, but
expressess uncertainty as to whether it is
justifiable for the malady as a whole. It
nas transpired that Prof. Virschow did not
meet Dr. MaeKenzio during tho latter’s stay
in Germany. Each kept his own special
domain; neither is yet willing to declare
the absolute certainty of a cure.
ACTIVITY OF THE POLICE.
The police have renewed their activity for
the repression of the Socialists. At Breslau
searches of domiciles are constantly being
made. The house of nx-Deputy Geiser was
searched and Herr Geiser and five other
persons were arrested. The leipsie Social
ists, Scebaeh, Ameer amt Sciiinidt, the
editor of the workingman's paper, has been
expelled from the country. Herbit, a fugi
tive from Stettin, has also been ordered to
quit the country.

Another Victory for the Thistle. ,
London, June 18.—The race between the
Thistle and two Irex, arranged by the Mer
sey Yacht Club, took place to-day, and the
Tliistlo added another to her list of victories.
A flying staid was made from New Brighton
at 11:50 o’clock this morning, and the Irex
soon had a slight lead. A light southwest
wind was blowing. The Thistle gained on
the Irex and soon forged ahead. The Irex
was never able to regain the lead. The
wind almost died out, but the Thistle still
stole away and crossed the winning line sev
eral miles ahead of the Irex. The Thistle
finished at fi:44 this afternoon.

Sensational Elopement of a Beautiful
Paris, June 17.—The Figaro says a sensa
tion has been caused in French high life by
the successful kidnaping of a Countess re
cently divorced. The kidnupers wore masks,
the Figaro says, and seized the Countess as
she was walking in the Bois de Boulogne.
They eluded pursuit, and the present where
abouts of the lady, the paper says, is un
known except to her captors, who have
managed to completely baffio their prison
er's friends as well as the jiolice.
It has been ascertained that the kidnaped
lady was Countess Campos, the divorced
wife of the Due de La T orre, a sou of the
late Marshal Serrano, of Spain. The Span
ish Embassy have instituted an energetic
search for flip lady, but as yet have no clew
to her whereabouts.
The Temps says the abductor of the
Countess Campos is a Frenchman, who had
been assiduous in his attentions to the
Countess and vainly endeavored to persuade
her to marry him. *
a prize indeed.
The lady is Mercedes Martinez Campos, a
Cuban heiress and a great beauty. Sno re
ceived a dowry of £300,000 on her marriage.
The marriage was nullified through the pas
sage of the Naquet law, although she nad
sued for divorce long before. Sue recovered
part of her fortune and resumed her maiden
name. She lived quietly and elegantly with
an elderly lady in the Rue Christophe Co
lombo. Both were walking in the Bois de
Boulogne, when a party of men,
two of whom were masked, seized
the young lady, thrust her into
a carriage and drove rapidly away,
unnoticed. The female accomplices ii\ the
meantime coarsely abused the lady’s com
panion, Mile. Louise, until the carriage was
out of sight, when they slipped off. The
household domestics have also disappeared,
giving color to the conjecture that the lady
herself was privy to the scheme which had
been concocted in order to force her family
to give their consent to a love match.
Being legally a spinster and a Spaniard, she
will not be of age until she reaches her 22d
Paris, June 18. —As a result of the in
quiries in the Campos abduction case, the
police are of the opinion that the affair was
prearranged, as both parties are of age. The
jwlice will not interfere. The alleged abduc
tion is said to be M. Delatour Gainoeuf. It
is said that he wrote a letter to the young
lady instructing her to wear a light dress if
she was willing to accompany him; other
wise to wear a dark dress. On the day be
fore the alleged abduction it is reported that
the lady implored her milliner to be punc
tual with her new light dress, and it is said
that she wore the same dress in the Bois de
Boulogne. Ex-Queen Isabella does not be
lieve that the lady consented to go, and has
written a letter to the authorities asking
them to pursue the matter further. All
kinds of rumors are in circulatipn, but no
facts can he learned.
“BARKIS” WAS WILLING.
The man with whom the Countess Campos
left France is Viscount Delatour Garboeux.
The couple went to Antwerp, and will go
from there to England, where they will bo
married. The Countess has written to the
papers saying that her object in running off
with the Viscount was to secure her release
from her oppressors and to regain her lib
erty. The fortune of the Countess is esti
mated at 7,500,000 francs.

A FRENCHMAN’S DUTY.
Military Duty Declared Imperative—
The Pope’s Wishes.
Paris, June 18.—The Chamber of Depu
ties to-day passed clause 1 of the army bills.
It declares it to be the duty of every French
man to perform military service.
The Journal Dcs De Bats has a dispatch
from Rome which says that the autograph
letter sent by the Pope to the Queen of Eng
land congratulating her upon her jubilee,
expresses a wish for the re-establishment of

After the passage of this clause o f the
army bill the Chamber proceeded to the

after a short debate, was adopted. The
clause provides that the duration of tne
military service shall be two years, that the

BETTER GAS, MR. WORLD.
Albany, N. Y., June 18. —A special dis
patch received here from Centralia, 111.,
says: The descent of the big balloon was
caused by the poor quality of the gas and
the illness of Aeronaut Moore, who lost
much blood from n:i accident to his hand.
He fainted during the ascent. The party
went up l<i,()00 feet. Gen. Hazen says the
trip, which was full of exciting incidents,
was scientifically successful. The balloon
will be taken to St. Louis, from whence
another start will undoubtedly be made.
RIGHT SIDE UP WITH CARE.
St. Louis, June 18.—A special from the
World's balloon correspondent, Mr. Duffy,
says that they were compelled to land at
Hoffman, Clinton county, 111., near Cen
tralia, at 8:15 o’clock last night. Aeronaut
Moore received a very painful injury be
fore starting yesterday, and the messages
from Centralia state this, and the giving out
of the gas was the cause assigned for the de
scent. None other of the occupants of the
car were hurt, and the balloon was securely
anchored without a tear.
A TALE OF THE AIR.
The World and Post-Dispatch, balloon at
tained a height of 16,000 feet above the sur
face of the earth yesterday afternoon at
5:20 o’clock, according to the markings of
the instruments of United States Signal
Service Officer Hazen, who was one of the
four in the car. This is the highest on
record in America. At this point the ther
mometer marked 37° Fahrenheit. Corre
spondent Duffy says:
“It seemed very cold, coming from a heat
of 75° in the shade an hour before. The air
ship left the earth as if reluctant to dejiart,
but once on its voyage upward, it gained
speed rapidly and was quickly among the
clouds. Mr.” Doughlv is photographing
the earth, Mr. Duffy is writing his
dispatch, Gen. Hazen looks up from his in
struments amazed and sees Moore helpless,
the loss of bloixl from his injury having
rendered him senseless. Gen. Hazen sings
out: ‘We’re going too fast 1’ There is much
excitement, but it calms in a minute, for
the instrument records the balloon falling.
Again the signal officer gives the w-arning,
‘We are falling dreadfully!’ and throws out
a handful of circulars. They shoot down
A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
“Moore, half his peril

sand falls scarcely faster than the car and
the earth seems to fly upward. Rivers and
. houses spread out as a vast map, growing ter
ribly- nearer each minute. Moore sings out:
‘Something wrong boys. If we don’t stop
her. We are lost, one thousand feet from
the earth and still tumbling madly down.
Seven hundred feet and tho drag rope
touches the earth; COO and a check is per
ceptible. At 400 the balloon skims along,
falling no more; the 300 feet of drag rope
resting on the earth gave relief. More
ballast was thrown out and the ship
again ascended, this time to
6,000 feet. The aeronaut then noticed that
tne bag was sagging and announced that a
landing must be made. When within a few
hundred feet of land the drag rope skimmed
along the earth, making a train for four
miles, aud in its wake followed a crowd of
natives. Several times they caught the
rope aud were hurled roughly to the ground.
A FEMININE SAVIOR.
“At August Palmer's farm, seven miles
from Centralia, 111., his sturdy wife gave
the drag-rope half a dozen turns around an
apple tree and brought the monster up with
a jerk. The. wind caught the folds of the
balloon and it soared up like a kite and for
an hour the fanners tugged at the
rope, and when the aeronaut pulled
the ripcord, to his amazement he
found it already loose, and this, it was
found, was the cause or the feartul fall, so
nearly disastrous to the occupants of the
air-ship. The carrier pigeons that were re
leased from tho balloon at a 2,900 feet alti
tude, have appeared at their homes.. Gen.
Hazen reports the voyage a success.”
The balloon will be brought back to the
city, and arrangements are now being made
for another ascent.

AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
Bank Directors Trustees for Deposi
tors as Well as Stockholders.
Springfield. 111., June 18.—An impor
tant decision has been rendered by the Su
preme Court in a bank case which has been
in the courts for several years. Gardner
Case was a depositor in the Bunker Hill
bank, at Bunker Hill, 111. The bunk failed
while holding his deposits, and lie brought
suit against tho directors individually. It
was claimed that if the deposits were re
ceived when the directors, by exercising'duo
diligence, might have known that the hank
was insolvent, they were legally liable for
the deposits. The Circuit Court of Macou
pin county gave judgment in favor of Cose
and the defendant* appealed to
the Appellate Court, which affirm
ed the decision of the court
below. The case was then carried to the
Supreme Court which again affirmed the
decision of the court below. The opinion
declares the following doctrine: First, tiiat
the directors of a bank are trustees for the
depositors, as well as for the stockholders;
second,-that they are hound to the observ
ance of all ordinary care and diligence, and

An Enterprising- Advertiser- A Few
Points About the Oas Monopoly.
Charleston, June 18. — This city has en
jey ■(! two weeks of ealm. undisturbed ex
cei>t by the MeElree incident, which, by the
way, is a very, funny incident. Mr. MeElree
is one of the most successful business men
in L harleston. He came here some ten or
twelve years ago and opened a kind of
jewelry store under the Waverly House.
~IK a I'TOgn ssive Irish-American he spent
nl>ut half ais business income in printers’
ink. He knew the secret of profitable
ad'eitisint;, which is to spend money
iUHiially and to mako ins advertise
ments always unique, novel and attractive.
In other words, he followed the example set
by Sam Wilson, who is to day one of the
richest men in the city, aud who commenced
business in a lit tie corner shop grocery
about sixteen years ago. Mr. Wilson mains
a specialty at that time of‘-dollar tea.” It
was at a time when the cheapest tea offered
m the market commanded from SI.BO
to #2 a pound. The country had
w- returned to the specie basis.
W ilson’s “dollar tea” advertisements were
so persistent, so unique, so novel, so utterly
endless, that the little corner grocery in a
year or two had blossomed out into one of
the finest ami most popular of King street
groceries, and Mr. Wilson is to-day a capi
talists who has coupon clippings every
McElvee worked the same plan and die too
soon made it pay. It paid hun so well, that
lie purchased and is now running a jewelry
jiulnce in the midst of the most fashionable
portion of King street, and has bought and
unproved a considerable quantity of real es
tate in other portions of the city. Among
his numerous investments in real estate
was the old Gayer homestead on
Meeting street, next north of the old artesian
well lot. On this he spent considerable
money, converting it into a model modern
boarding house, which was occupied before
the earthquake, and brought In a good in
vestment on the outlay. The artesian lot
had in the meantime been converted into a
sort of public park, with a handsome orna
mental iron fouutain in it. Bome
time before the earthquake the city had
been considering the advisability of con
centrating its fire department at, n central
station, and the old Artesian Park has been
selected. The earth quake and the sale of
the old guard house to the government for a
post office and court house enables the city
to carry out this plan, aud steps were taken
looking to the accomplishment of that object.
It was then that MeElree began to put on
his war paint. Ho W'rote column and
column of communications, got up lengthy
petitions and liegan the agitation
which has Rince became known as
the “MeElree incident.” The newspapers
refused to publish his communication which
would have occupied too much space. But
MeElree was not to be deterred tu this way.
Ho bought out a column or two in the AVor.s
and Courier and has tillod the Rpaoo witli
vigorous communications —anew one every
day—arraigning the city administration,
Im* rating everybody and earnestly protest
ing against what he calls this desecration.
The MeElree column has attainod so much
notoriety that It is regarded as one of the
chief features of the paper. Everybody
reads it and everybody is anxious to see
what McEhee has to siy. Mr. McElroo will
hardly prevent the building of the new cen
tral stntiou, but be is getting a vast amount
of good advertising, as his proclamations are
all signed "John MeElree, proprietor of
McElreo’s jewelry palace, 367 King street,
etc.” This is a hint to Savannah merchants
which they might do well to take. MeElree,
as has been stated, is one of the most suc
cessful business men in Charleston. He
came here an utter stranger ten or twelve
years ago and built up ids enormous busi
ness solely by liberal and judicious advertis
THE OAS MONOPOLY.
Another event of the week is the resump
tion of the gas monopoly war, the details of
which up to a certain point have been givon
in this correspondence. The gas monopoly
in Charleston has succeeded in killing one
electric light company, anil swamping about
$50,000 of Charleston capital. It lias also
succeeded in crushing out all attempts to
establish new gas companies. The new
electric light company, however, which
commenced business soon after the earth
quake, did not ask for city pap, and has
hence been allowed to get a footing without
much trouble. As soon, however, as it be
gan to get ;on, the giant gas octopus
began to stretch out its arms. It applied to
the City Council for permission to erect
poles on the streets for furnisuing electric
light. The permission was granted without
hesitation. Then the Electric Light Com
pany applied for iiermistrion to run mnins
through the street for the furnishing of gas.
This petition was promptly burlod in u con
venient commits* pigeon hole. The purse
of the gas octopus reaches even to the com
mittee rooms of Council. The Electric Light
Company, however, are determined not to tie
licattn. Linder the omnibus incorporation
law they obtained a charter for the incorpo
ration of an electric light, gas, steam and wa
ter-power comimny. Tpe old company was
transferred to the new, and at the last, meet
ing of Council an application was filed by
the new conqiany for permission to run
their mains through the streets. The peti
tioners offer to give bond to keep the streets
in repuir, the repaving to be done by expert
workmen under the direction of the street
department and at the expense of the peti
tioners, and also promise not to interfere
with the mains of either the gas or water
(-ompaniee. The petition was referred to the
same committal* that, buried the former, and
the gas octopus will huve another opiortu
nityof burying it. Hut the fight will not
stop here. The new concern represent*
Charleston capital, and has at its head some
of the moat enterprising and influential citi
zens. They mean to make a vigorous fight,
and they will he burned by a large major
ity of the long-suffering consumers of gas,
who can see no reason why the city should
oppress them by forcing them to pay $3 a
1,000 feet for gas when other comiuiies are
reaiiy and anxious to furnish it to them at
$1 is*r 1,000. It is astonishing how long
this community has consented to suffer this
affliction, and the present struggle is watched
with eager interest.
BASE BALL GOSSIP.
Public interest in hast* ball matters has
lteen considerably revived by the prompt
ness with which the stockholders of the
local club declined the offer of SO,OOO re
cently made them for their franchise. The
public did not have much faith in the direc
tors’ declarations that they wouid stick
through the season. The action of the
stockholders, however, has shown that the
club will not lack down, and interest in the
national game has been revived. The mati
nees, or telegraphic reports, are largely
attended, and the community—for the
whole community is interested—await
with anxious longing the return of their
team. The club has been offered all the
financial assistance It wants to enable it to
continue the fight to the bitter end. At
present, ho vev#r, it is not in need of finan
cial help. The series of home games
were very profitable, the receipts amounting
to a sum sufficient to pay all the expenses of
the team in making the circuit of
the present series. It will be
remembered thnt last year the club kept it*
team in the field long after t!earthquake,
and fulfilled all it* engagement* at a heavy
expense. It is not likely that it will sell it*
franchise now, when the promise of a suc
cessful season is so great. The entire com
munity would lie shocked at a linckdowu
under the circumstances and will willingly
pay to prevent it.

Arrests, as Usual.
Houston, Tex., June 18.—The most
daring train robbery that ever occurred in
Texas was perpetrated this morning at 1
o'clock, a short distance from Behulenburg,
< n the Southern Pacific railroad. A* the
train drew up at the station two men with
drawn revolvers mounted the engine, cov
ered the engineer and compelled him to pull
the train out to the open prairie, a few hun
dred yards to the east, where the Are was
burning, around which stood eight or ton
men, armed with Winchester rifle*. The
two robbers on the engine stood guard over
the nmn at the throttle, while the other*
went through the mail, express and passen
THEIR SLUMBERS RUDELY BROKEN.
Nearly all the passengers were asleep and
did not know what was going on until they
were aroused by the robl*ra. The first man
tackled by the thieves was W. Newberger,
of New 5 ork, whom they struck on the
head with a revolver. They secured from
him $75 in cash and several diamonds aud a'
gold watch, valued at about SI,OOO. P. C.
Mayer, of Cincinnati, was relieved of #35.
K. L Armstead, of New York, gave up S3O;
ht* hail a larger amount of money with him,
but it was hidden in the sleeping
car. A gentleman from Mexico,
whose name could not be learned,
lost SIOO. All of the passenger* lost
what valuables they had ana it is difficult
to form any estimate of the amount of the
money and jewelry secured. It is reckoned,
however, at #5,000. Wells, Fargo A Co.’#
express car was also gone through, but tlio
amount of money taken from it cannot be
ascertained. No mail route agent was on
the train, hut the ttirough mail pouches in
the express car were all cut open and their
contents appropriated. The total amount
secured bv the robbers is put down at SB,OOO
or SIO,OOO, but when a careful revision of
the matter is made the figures may he
changed. There Is no doubt but that con
siderable booty was secured, and the gang
made off with it successfully. The whole
country is aroused and in arms. Several
parties have gono in search of the robbers.

looked as if a repetition of yesterday’s big
drop was imminent. Last night’s dosing

showing a decline of nearly Wc. per bag.
