LAND AND CRIME IN ERIK
LORD CHURCHILL SPEAKS ON THE
FORMER IN THE COMMONS.
Be Supports Mr. Dillon’s Criticisms on
the Restrictions of the Leaseholder’s
Clause— The Bankruptcy Clause De
clared One of the Measure’s Worst
Features— Baron Ashbourne Starts
the Debate in the House of Lords.
London, July 14. —The Unionists will
abstain from voting on the bankruptcy
clauses of the land bill if they are not aban
doned. In the face of the threatened pro
longed opposition to the bill many of the
Conservatives are urging the government to
be content to pass the lease holders’ clause
and to leave the remainder of the new bill
over till the next session.
DEBATING ON THE LAND BILL,
in the House of Commons this evening
Lord Randolph Churchill, the de
bate on the land bill, objected to Mr. Ban-
Derman’s amendment (that the bill be re
jected) only as raising a false issue. There
was a general agreement, he said, on the
point that the bill was absolutely necessary
to afford relief to the Irish tenantry. It was
a great mistake to impute want of good
faith to the government in the proposes of
the bill. The government had been forced
to offer a temporary land measure before
the session closed, for no more odious duty
could devolve upon the Irish government
than to administer the crimes act unaccom
panied by a measurse which would satisfy
the tenantry. [Cribs of hear, hear.]
Proceeding to examine the clauses of the
bill, he supported Mr. Dillon’s criticisms on
the restrictions of the leaseholder’s clause,
which lie hoped the government would
amend. He did not see that the tenantry
would derive any benefit from the clause
dealing with evictions. [Parnellite cheers.]
He would fear to entrust Irish agents, ad
visers of landlords, with the powers con
ferred upon them under that clause. [Cries
of “Oh” from the Conservative benches and
cheers.] What would have been the state
of Ireland if this clause had been in opera
tion last winter?
APPALLING TO CONTEMPLATE.
He did not doubt that from one-quarter
to one-half of the tenantry would have been
•victed, and the result would have been a
state of tumult and disorder appalling to
contemplate. [Cheers.] It was not within
the limit of physical possibilities to deal
with the clause this session. The bill must
be lightened by throwing it over. The
bankruptcy clauses were equally objection
able. inasmuch as they would tend to lower
the moral tone of the tenantry, besides pro
ducing an immeasurable mass of litigation.
[Cheers from the Irish benches.] The gov
ernment, in view of the large number of
tenants who it was expected would be forced
into bankruptcy, seemed to be trying to
build up a system of national credit on a
widespread foundation of national insol
vency. If the government, with the Irish
members, would agree to deal with arrears
and division of judicial rents instead of the
bankruptcy clause, the bill would be de
prived of its worst features and would be
come acceptable to the country. [Cheers.]
SIR HARCOURT REPLIES.
Sir William Vernon Hareourt congratu
lated Lord Randolph on his clear exposition
of the defects of the bill. If Lord Randolph’s
speech led to anew development of the bill
the House would have no difficulty in pass
ing it, Lord Randolph had performed a
capital operation under chloroform upon
the measure, transforming its nature and
leaving a mere skeleton of the bill. If the
government assented the House would now
try to put some decent clothing on the
skeleton. Lot the government throw over
board the clause that both the Tories and
Literals opposed and the bill going without
delay to committee would find an easy pass
GOSHEN DEFENDS THE BILL.
Mr. Goshen, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
(Waking in behulf of the government said
tout while they would not attempt to dis
guise the difficulty oi their task they must
refuse to buy a single vote by
making any concession against their convic
tions. Dwelling on tlie temporary character
"f the bill lie said the government would do
their best to meet the views of the gentle
men on the other side with rognrd to the
lease-holders’ clause, but he boldly defended
tlie eviction clause. He could only
understand the opposition to that
c*ause on the supposition that it
was deemed advisable to keep) up the evic
noii agitation with a view of influencing
puhlie opinion. Tlie government was not
prepared to drop the clause, believing that
Ule s, oiipuge of evictions would take
away halt the stock in trodo of
r , Irish agitators. He defended the
Bankruptcy clauses, and denied
“ Randolph Churchill’s assertion that
iue government was trying to found a sys
eni nf national credit. He opposed the
I, **"r a revision of rents, advised by the
j-ow per commission as fatal to the coming

Neither sex, nor age was spared from this
odious, ferocious cowardly tyranny. It
was slander upon trades unions to compare
them with the National League i and it was
absolutely startling to bear Mr Gladstone
cloak the abominable system of boycotting
under the euphemism of “exclusive deal
NO LIBERTY IN IRELAND.
The bill was called a coercion bill, but
what- liberty existeddn a country where a
man was not allowed to build a house or
supply goods to his neighbors without ex
posing himself to outrage and murder?
\\ here people could not buy, sell, employ or
be employed without being subjected to tho
direst tyranny? In submitting a measure
that was necessary for the protection of
honest subjects the ministers had a right to
rely on the loyal co-operation of the oppo
sition. [Cries of “Hear I" Hear I”] A weak
bill would be worthless, and this measure,
while strong enough to be a terror to evil
doers, would not jeopardize the liberty of a
single innocent man. [Cheers.]
Earl Granville said he would not deny
that the government, finding itself unable
to maintain law and order by the existing
machinery, had a right to apply to Parlia
ment for further powers; but when re
strictions were proposed suspending com
mon personal rights, the clearest proof was
required to justify an exceptional" law.
ERIN’S PRESENT CONDITION.
The state of Ireland was as peaceable now
as it was in 1885, when the ordinary law
was found to be sufficient. Everybody knew
that the real aim of the bill was" to suppress
combinations that interfered with the policy
of the government and to brand them us
illegal. It was the undoubted right of every
man to deal with his neighbors or not as he
liked. The measure was of a deplorable
and dangerous character and would cer
tainly lead to grave evils in Ireland. Tlie
opposition having done its utmost to resist
tne passage of the bill must leave upon the
government the responsibility for the re
The Duke of Argyll, Lord Carnarvon and
others spoke, and the bill was then read the
second time. The measure will be discussed
in committee to-morrow.
Prof. Tyndall, in a communication pub
lished to-day, says that he has received
numerous letters from all parts of America
on the Irish homo rule question, and they
all recommend the utmost resistance to Mr.
Gladstone's policy. “Inasmuch.” says Mr.
Tyndall, “as a desperate gamester, miscalled
statesman, has chosen to invoke ignorant
foreign opinion against the instructed
opinion of his own countrymen, it is worth
showing that American opinion is not en
tirely on his side.”
TREVELYAN’S ELECTION ADDRESS.
Mr. Trevelyan has issued an election ad
dress to the electors of the Brighton division
of Glasgow which he is contesting in the
Liberal interest. He says: “From the first
I disapproved of the Liberals supporting
the Conservatives against the Liberals.
No word of mine can be
quoted in which I favored this course,
trie adoption of which proves to every
unprejudiced man the policy of the dissi
dents’ aims not at a settlement of the Irish
question by amending the bills presented in
1888, but at the suppression of the Liberal
party I cannot partake of that policy. The
dissident leaders have not accepted Mr.
Gladstone’s offers and refuse to lie recon
ciled to the Liberal party, pronouncing to
give tljpir support to the Conservatives.”
LESS CRIME IN KERRY.
Dublin, July 14.—Justice O’Brien in his
address to the grand jury of county Kerry
to-day admitted that there was a decrease of
crime ill the county. He said he could
not, however, congratulate the people on
the fact, the cause of it being the complete
subjugation of the peaceable members of
the community to a lawless organization
which was now allowing tho well disposed a
little repose from violence.
PARIS ESCAPES A RIOT.
The People Cheer for Boulanger, But
Preserve the Peace.
Paris, July 14.—The fall of the Bastile
was celebrated in this city to-day without
demonstrations of a serious nature. A
demonstration was made at the statue of
Strasburg this morning, but it was entirely
of a peaceful nature. The members of the
Patriotic League and of other associations,
with banners and trumpeters, marched past
the statue and deposited upon it colossal
memorial crowns. As this was done there
were a few cries from the procession of
“Vive la France!” “Vive la republlque!”
and “Vive la Boulanger!” but there were
no attempts at disorder.
President Grevy, accompanied by all the
members of the ministery, left the palace of
the Ely sees at 3:30 o’clock this afternoon to
attend the review of troops. An escort of
cuirassiers preceded and followed the Pres
ident’s carriage. The people along the
route greeted the President with cries of
A FEW HOSTILE CRIES.
President Grevy and his Ministry were
also greeted with some isolated cries of
“Vive Boulanger” and “Resign,” and a few
hisses on their arrival at Long Champs to
witness the review, but the cries of “Vive
la Republlque” dominated and tho people
seemed generally disposed to be friendly.
The review of the troops passed off without
incident. It was witnessed by an immense,
but orderly crowd, which cheered the troops
heartily. The march past ls*gan at 4:80
o’clock and was finished at 5:50. The Presi
dent and his Cabinet then returned to Paris.
The populace this evening is calm nnd all
fears of disorder have vanished.
ROCHEFORT CRIED DOWN.
Ilenri Rochefort, Deputies Laisant and
Languerro, and a number of other irreeon
cilables, attempted to excite a hostile de
monstration (luring the review at iiOng
ehuraps to-day, but tho people
around quickly drowned out their
voices with cries of “Vive Grevy!” Presi
dent Grew hus addressed a letter to Gou.
Perron, Minister of War, in which he says:
“The review was magnificent. I admired the
martial 1 .earing and perCeet precision of the
troops. Convey them my hearty congrat
ulations." .... .
At a late hour tonight the streets pre
sented an animated npi>earniice, but noth

SAVANNAH, GA., FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1887.
PRESIDENT AND PASTOR.
CLEVELAND THE GUEST OF HIS
One of Mrs. Cleveland’s Eyes Painfully
Inflamed as the Result of a Sting or a
Blind Boil—The Travelers Enjoying
Much Needed Rest in Their Quiet
Utica, N. Y., July 14.—President and
Mrs. Cleveland left for Forest Port at 0:15
o'clock this morning. Their special train
consisted of a boudoir car and locomotive,
and was occupied only by Mr. and Mrs.
Cleveland, the latter’s maid, Supt. Ham
mond and Conductor Daniels. They were
accompanied to the depot by Senator Ker
nan and his son. Mrs. Cleveland’s eye is
very much inflamed and pains her exceed
ingly. Dr. Beith, of this city, was called
and pronounced it either a blind boil or tlie
sting of an insect.
CROWDS AT THE STATIONS.
The journey to Alder Creek was without
other incident than the appearance of
groups of people at the various stations as
the train passed. A request from Reming
ton that the people might huvo an opportu
nity to see the President was referred to
him by Assistant (Superintendent Hammond,
who was in charge of the special, and the
wish was answered by the train running
slowly through the village, where the con
course gave a pleasant greeting to the dis
tinguished travelers, who were once more
upon their platform. On the arrival of tho
train at Alder Creek there was
a respectful gathering of people.
MET BY HIS BROTHER.
The travelers were met by Rev.
Mr. Cleveland and his wife and escorted in
a carriage to their residence, about two
miles east from Aldon creek, on tjje odge of
the village of Forest Port. It is a pretty,
new cottage, built two years ago under the
supervision of Rev. Mr. Cleveland, who is
pastor of the Presbyterian mission flocks at
Forest Port and White Lake Corners. The
mistress of this neat country home has been
a warmly welcomed visitor at the White
House, and this, with the brotherly affection
between the President and pastor argues
that the restful visit of tho President and
his wife during the ensuing two or three
days will be one of great enjoyment.
THE MEETING AT THE DEPOT.
Forest Port, N. Y., July 14.—The Presi
dential party was greeted; at the depot by
Dr. A. G. Brower and Rev. and Mrs. Cleve
land, and was driven rapidly from Aldon
Creek Station over three milt's of sandy
road to this village. Arrived at
Rev. Cleveland’s place, the guests at
once proceeded to rest, of which
the fatiguing labors of the past
few days had put them so much in need.
The village contains but 300 or 400 inhabit
ants, mostly engaged in the lumbering and
tanuing industry, and there was no crowd
on hand to welcome thedistinguislied guests.
THE ONLY DECORATIONS.
The only attempt at decoration was made
at Alder Creek, wuore a large flag and Cleve
land and Hendricks campaign banner were
flung to the breeze. The President took special
interest in the latter. Later in the dav Com
missioner Kernan and Postmaster Water
bury called and arranged for a public re
ception to be held at the parsonage to-mor
row between the hours or 7:30 and 0 o’clock
at night. Rev. Mr. Cleveland and his wife
were warmly in favor of the reception.
THE BROTHER’S POPULARITY.
Rev. Mr. Cleveland has been the pastor of
the Presbyterian church hore for eight
years, and is very popular. At 5 o’clock
this afternoon Postmaster Waterbury took
the President, Mrs. Cleveland and the
President's sister-in-law for an hour's drive.
Mrs. Cleveland, who had already made her
self a general favorite with the rs-ople, won
many new friends during the drive by re
sjionding to the slightest evidence of recog

ROBBED BY A CASHIER.
The Philadelphia Times Victimized to
the Extent of $30,000.
Philadelphia, July 14.—Joseph M.
White, who has been cashier of the Times
newspaper office for about ten years, is said
to be a defaulter to the amount of at least
880,000. An examination of Mr. White’s
books was made a short time ago and os a
consequence he was asked to tender his
resignation, which he did. Since that time
ail examination has been progressing, and
each day tho deficit has increased, until
now it reaches the figure above stated, al
though the examination of his books is not
yet near completed. •
NINE YEARS OF STEALING.
As indicated by the books, the peculations
have been going on for at least nine years,
and although suspicion was at various times
aroused by the extravagant habits of White,
it was dispelled by a statement made by
himself that his wire had fallen heir to quite
a large sum of money. It now appears,
however, that neither he noV his wife huve
any property or money beyond White’s in
come from his position, and that the money
taken by him has been squandered in a
lavish way in maintaining a position in
society which his salary of #2,500 per year
would not warrant.
No steps have as yet been taken by the
Times Publishing Company against the de
faulter, but it is said that he is now and has
been since his resignation uuder police sur
veillance. He lias been at the office assist,
ing the experts iii the examination of his
accounts for severul days, and the discov
ery of so large a shortage, whieh may be
considerably increase! by future develop
ments, has caused considerable excitement.

New York, July 14. —Jacob Sharp slept
better last night than for some nights previ
ous, but'it seemed to bo the sleep of utter
exhaustion, and he apiieared to bo but little
refreshed by it when ho arose this morning
at 0 o’clock. His wife sat by his bedside
through the night, fanning him while he
was sleeping, and giving cooling drinks in
his waking intervals. After bo arose from
bed she assisted him to dress for his second
trip to the Court of Oyer nnd Terminer to
receive sentence. He bore the same listless,
indifferent and almost dazed manner notice
able in him since his conviction. Ho ap
peared almost unconscious of the attention
his wife lavished on him, and scarcely ex
changed a word with her.
THE RIDE TO THE COURT HOUSE.
Mr. Sharp remained sitting in a reclining
chair with Ins wife beside him fanning him,
until the hour came at which ho was to start
for the court house. He hail been able to
take but little nourishment, and was very
weak. He was escorted from the jail to a
carriage awaitting to convey him down
town by Warden Keating, Under Sheriff
Sexton and Deputy Sheriff Curran. Mrs.
Sharp accompanied her husband and took
the carriage with him and the Warden nnd
Under Sheriff. The Deputy Sheriff sat on
tho box beside the driver. It was 11:30
when tlie carriage drove away from the
jail and just twenty minutes Inter it stopped
before the county court house.
A CURIOUS CROWD.
The party alighted and passed through a
lane made for them by the [Kilice through
the waiting crowd of curious spectators to
tho Sheriffs office, and thence to the court
room. Sharp was so weak that in going to
the carriage from the jail, and on leaving it
on his way into the court house and up the
stairs to the court room it was
necessary for the officers guard
ing him to support his tottering form.
Long before Sharp's arrival crowds
invaded the court house, trying to obtain
entrance to the court room, or stood on the
sidewalk without the building. Compara
tively few of the throngs that applied for
tickets to the court room sin-ceded in get
ting in. There were a sufficient number
admitted, however, to fill every scat. Judge
Barrett, whose illness yesterday compelled
postponement of the sentencing of the coil
victed man, had recovered sufficiently to
day to be present in court. He arrived
at the court house at almost
the same moment ns tho prisoner.
A SAD SCENE.
The clock was indicating exactly the
hojur of 12 when Sharp was almost carried
into the court room. His suffering wife and
son-in-law were dose behind him and deop
lines of weariness ami sorrow ovet spread
their faces ns they seated themselves besides
the dejected man and fanned his livid face
without bringing anything like a semblance
of color back to it. His grandson took the
same seat he occupied during the long trial,
and Lawyei-s Nelson, Stickney nnd Parson*
seated themselves on the right of
their client, opposite his wife
and relatives. Sharp sat with
clasped hands nnd bowed head at the foot
of tne table. His face, almost buried ill his
chest, became flushed and sickly lookmgtin
dcr the riveted gaze of all present, who were
silently staring at the convicted railroad
jklng. Mr. Sharp and the rest of his family,
ike the prisoner himself, was silent. The
excitement was becoming quite feverish,
when a sudden hush came over tho room as
three raps on the door announced the ar
rival of Judge Barrett, at exactly 12:15
APPLICATION FOR A NEW TRIAL.
After calling the court to order Mr. Mar
tine got up ami stated that a* lie heard the
defense had some l'cmarks to make he wished
to hear them.
Mr. Mitchell responded, saving that he
had no application to put in for delay, but
would move for anew trial, and wished the
stenographer to make a note of the fact.
Judge Barrett said that if the document
contained nothing new he would deny the
application for n hew trial.
Mr. Mitchell then read a paper, stating
that the trial was an unfair one In several
ways. The jury was prejudiced against the
client ami gave an unfair verdict. More
over, the Judge's charge was an unjust one.
Several other points were raised, but all
were of the same variety.
Judge Barrett stated that the motion
would projierly be denied.
MOVING FOR SENTENCE.
District. Attorney Martino then stood up
to move the court to sentence the prisoner.
He stated that lie considered it his duty to
a*k the court to appoint physicians to look
into the prisoner's condition of health, and
road some certificates from Dr*. Allen
McC. Hamilton and Janeway to tho effect
that the prisoner’s health was very bad, and
that ho was suffering from dialietes, in
flammation of the kidneys and organic dis
ease of tlie heart, which were of serious im
port, to a mail of his years.
He then read Dr. Hamilton’s report on
the condition of Bing Sing, and tho arrange
ments for the cure of the sick, which he said
were of a most excellent character all
around, and the place was most healthfully
situated. “In view of these facts," con
cluded Mr. Martino, “there is nothing left
for me to do but to move for the sentencing
of the pris< >ner. ”
Mr. Mitchell then stood up to make the
last appeal for tlie defense. He said he did
not wish to detain the court, but would ask
the court to teiupor justice with mercy.
PRONOUNCING THE SENTENCE.
Judge Barrett then proceeded to deliver
his sentence, lie said that he had never
jierformod so delicate a task in his whole

laws of justice. A Judge i* appointed to

with tlie commission of the offence have

The defendant here, in asking for mercy,
cua give nothing as it plea for clemency but

case he certainly is entitled to none. It is
alwimi to state that be waa not guilty of

case of the aldermen, any attempt to prove
the defendant's good character. The criuio
itself was an enormous one—the raising of
#500,000 to corrupt half the legislature.
THE BOOUH COMPANY.
Judge Barrett reviewed the eorrn[>t ac
tion of the dafcndint. iu forming a bogus
company to contract with tlie Seventh Ave
nue railway, of which he was a director,
and nllu'li dlo tl'( dctend.i: ' ■ cinng #l,

MRS. SHARP WEEPS.
At this Mm. Sharp burns 1 her face in her
handkerchief and wept silently, while tho
prisoner himself did not lift his face from
t lso table. “The Legislature does not allow
us to go lielow the minimum penalty in such
a grave offence as the present is,” continued
•fudge lin r reft, “All cannot lie satisfied.
Those who called for tho prisoner’s receiving
the full penalty of the law, and those calling
tin' a reprimand, all tilings have beon con
sidored, and the judgment of this court is
that the prisoner be confined four year* at
hard labor, and that hepayaflneof $1,000."
An attempt at applause was made in one
corner of the room as the sentence was pro
nounced, but it was suppressed quickly.
A CHEEK WITHOUT.
As some of the spectators moved out of
court Mr. Mitchell shssl tip to ask fordehiy
in the removal of (Sharp to Sing Sing until
he had settled some affairs in the city.
Judge Barrett denied the motion, as
there was no provision of the law for such a
course of action, and ho did not think it
would be deserved by the prisoner if there
was. At that moment a faint cheer was
heard outside as the sentence was announced
by those wiio had left the court room. The
audience then began to melt away quickly.
Sentence had been pronounced at 1:04. At
1:10 o’clock nearly all the mere curiosity
seekers had left the room. At 1 :13 o’clock
t here was another excitement of a moment’s
duration as the prisoner was led out of the
court room, still followed by his faithful
wife, son-in-law and grandson. Sharp wus
half led, half carried from the court room
by his son-in-law and coachman, ami War
den Ideating and Deputy Curran keeping
close by his side. He was token to Sheriff
Grant’s office in the basement of the court
house. It was decided after Sharp had left
tho court room that ho was to lie returned
to Ludlow street jail. As it was for one
night only the court considered it would not
bo anything too great in the way of conces
sion to allow him to stay in that place rather
than to send him to the Tombs prison.
A stay of proceedings has been granted by
Judge Potter in the Sharp case until Mon
day next. The order is returnable in the
Supreme Court on Monday next. It was
served on Sheriff Grant immediately on its
being granted. The order directs the Dis
triet Attorney to show cause why a perma
nent stay of proceedings should not bo
The stay was granted on affidavits of
Sharp’s counsel that they need more time to
preimre a bill of exceptions and that Judge
Barrett had said that he was too ill to give
the matter of a stay his attention.
