Chicago, July 18.—The sickle of the sun
cut a wide swath in the population of Chi
cago last week, and yesterday it had its
victims in every grade of society and left
them in every part of the city. The wel
come breeze that sprang up last evening
saved many lives, but many a sufferer was
jiast all help, and diming the night and
morning many were added to the death
list. Twenty deaths from sunstroke were
reported yesterday and as many more this
morning, and 263 babies less than a year old

COOLED BY A STORM.
Baltimore, July IS.—A severe thunder
storm, accompanied by rain and nai 1 ., visited
this city and vicinity late this at, rnoon.
Within a few minutes the streets were
flooded in every direction, and the hail was
so severe that pedestrians sought the nearest
shelter. The day had been oppressively
warm and tho hail had the effect to cool the
temperature. During the storm signs and
awnings were blown away, but no personal
damage was done.
At the Emory Grove camp meeting
ground, about twenty miles west of the
city, where about fifty families spend the
summer in tents, Miss Ida Andrews, of Bai
imore, was killed instantly by the falling
of a large tree, which struck her square in

several degrees above previous reports tele
graphed. Telephonic inquiries at 3 o’clock
this afternoon showed that in all quarters of

between 100° and 106’ in the shade. The
effect of this prolonged term of heat on man
and beast has been very severe.

of prostrations from heat in the past two
days, six resulting fatally. Several indus
tries employing huge numbers of operatives
suspended work to-day, owing to tile ex

horses, a majority of them lielonging to the
street car lines, have succumbed.

London, July 18. —Walter Hume Long,
Conservative member of Parliament for
the Devizes division of Wiltshire, called the
attention of the House of Commons this
afternoon to a breach of privilege committed
on Friday last in the lobby by Dr. Tanner,
Parnellite member for Middle Cork,in calling
him (Mr. Long) a “<J— snob.” Continuing,
Mr. Long said he had by letter warned Dr.
Tanner of his determination to bring the
matter before tho House. Notwithstanding
this Dr. Tanner was now absent, although
he had full knowledge that his presence was
required to defend himself. Tho facts of
the case were that Mr. Long having heard
that Dr. Tanner had complained that his
vote had not been recorded in several divis
ions, and meeting him in the lobby asked
him what was the matter and if anything
was going wrong in the record of the divis
Dr. Tanner replied: “You’re a Tory,
aren’t you? I wish to God that you
wouldn’t speak to me. I have told you
and Tories never to speak to me. [lrish
cheers.] Talk to your own and lot.”
Mr. Long answered: “I wasn’t aware you
didn’t wish to be spoken to.”
Dr. Tanner then went on: “Keep your
and tongue in your mouth. Don’t make
a blasted fool of yourself.” [Laughter by
the Parnellites.] As Mr. Long was hurry
ing away Dr. Tanner called out: “There
goes ad snob.” Mr. Long, after giv
ing the history of the incident, said he
would rather have passed over the affair
with contempt, but as it occurred within tho
precincts of the House, and in the presence
of several members, he felt it to be his duty
to bring the whole matter before the House.
W. H. Smith, the government leader, said
that in view of the necessity to maintain
decorum, he would move that in conse
quence of his disorderly words Dr. Tanner
be suspended for one mouth.
Mr. Sexton said he considered such pro
ceedings scarcely less disgraceful than tho
language complained of. Dr. Tanner had
frequently requested Conservative members
not to address him. Mr. Ixing would have
acted wisely if he had not spoken to Dr.
Tanner. At the time the doctor was excited
over his exclusion from the division. The
incident did not deserve the treatment it was
accorded, and Dr. Tanner did not deserve
the severe penalty proposed. As to his ab
sence be was in Ireland keeping a public en
He would meet the accusation any day
appointed for him to do so. Mr. Sexton
moved to adjourn the debate until Dr. Tan
ner should lie present.
Mr. Smith reminded the House that no
request for delay, nor any apology had been
offered by Dr. Tanner. He had had ample
notice that his conduct was to be brought
before the House.
Mr. Parnell submitted that there was no
precedent for suspending a member for a
month without giving him a chance to be
heard to repel charges against him.
Mr. Gladstone said he thought that the
proposed punishment for the offense, sup
ported by ex parte evidence only, was dis
proportioned to what was usually adminis
Mr. Smith after hearing Mr. Gladstone
said he would not press his motion, and in
stead would propose that Dr. Tanner should
attend on Thursday next. This was agreed

out of this station at 9:56 o’clock this morn
ing. As the connecting train for Oazeinovia
did not leave Canastota uic and 11:30 o’clock,
the sjxH-ial train was run at n moderate rate
of speed. Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland looked
quite well. The night and morning were
most exhausting. A heavy rain fell at in
tervals, but this added to tiie discomfort
rather than comfort.
At 10:30 o’clock tho Presidential partv
passed* through the city of Rome, it not
being generally known what time they
would arrive, consequently not over 150
people were at the depot. Those flocked to
the track and watched the sjK-oiat train as
she made her way slowly along. President
Cleveland was on tho roar platform of the
single car which tho engineer drew in full
view of the people. As the car reached the
depot he doffed his hat and bowed gracious
ly twice to the admiring crowds. The car
rail very slowly hut did not stop, Mrs.
Cleveland and Secretary Fairchild were
standing just within the door, and smiled
in appreciation of the remarks that were
made by the ladies who wore trying to get
a full glance at the fair lace. Mrs. Fair
child sat on the left side >f the car, near the
I>aok window, and looked considerably worn
and tired, as did the whole party. They
were only visible for a short time before
the train passed out of sight, bearing its
illustrious passengers on their westward
journey to the home of the President’s
CHEERED AT ONEIDA.
The President and party passed through
Oneida at 10:43 o’clock. Long la-fore the

in front of the Allen House, awaiting his
arrival. The Oneida battery fired two
minute guns as the President and his party
left Oneida, which resulted in filling all the
available ground in front of the hotel. The
Pi-aidant’s car drew up just as the 10:87
o’clock train was passing out. Tho crowd
surged around the rear end of the oar and
greeted the President with loud cheers as
he and his wife appeared on the back
platform. Mr. Cleveland had a pleasant
smile and a hearty grasp for all within reach,
wiiile Mrs. Cleveland stood in the door and
smiled and nodded pleasantly to the ladies.
Just before the train started, an old lady,
who was trying vainly to get to the Presi
dent, was noticed by him. "Let that old
lady come np,” he said to several men who
were standing in the wuy. The old lady's
face was flushed with pleasure at his kind
ness, and site shook his hand heartily.
The President and his party were again
enthusiastically cheered as the carjmoved on.

A Demonstration to be Made at the
Tomb of President Juarez.
City ok Mexico, July 17.—Great
preparations are making to commemorate
in San Fernando Cemetery to-morrow the
death of President Juarez, and this after
noon the approaches to the cemetery are
being superbly decorated. It is the inten
tion of the chief men of the biberal party to
make the affair one of great prominence.
Nearly every newspaper office in the city
and throughout the country will send
wreaths ana flowers to bo laid on the tomb.
The Clerical press is taking no jiart
in the affair. All the paper* in the city
belonging to the liberal press turned their
column rules to-day and published long ar
ticle* eulogistic of the dead patriot. The
Puedo Later al hus an article on the ene
mies of President Juarez, protesting ener
getically against the assertion of the Clerical
press that to-morrow's manifestation is an
anti-Catholic demonstration. It says that
the manifestation to-morrow will include
all iiatriots, and will only exclude traitors
and renegades. They are traitors, the paper
says, who in reviving ancient feuds and
hatred insult .the heroes of liberty and the
SUPPRESSION Of El, TIEMPO.
A high official said this afternoon that the
arrest of the editorial staff of El Tienijto,
the loading Clerical organ, was not the act,
of the government, but was done by order
of a Judge acting on lxis own volition under
that section of the penal code relating to
liberty of the press. It is intimatotl that
the action of the Judge was taken to pre
vent n popular outburst against El 1 tempo.
This paper has of late violently attacked
the United States, stating that its mission
in this country is one of pacific conquest.
These attacks on the American people liavc
given much nnnoyanco to the adininistra
turn, ns they were reproduced promptly in
SUING A UNION.
The Right to Prevent a Man Getting
Work to be Tested.
CIIICAOO, July 18.—Michael Reirko, a
practical maltster, has brought suit in the
Circuit Court against the International Beer
Brewers’ and Maltster Union No. 1, of this
city, and Peter Jung, an official of tin; union,
chummy SIO,OOO. The allegation is that
through the agency of the union and the ef
forts of Jung, Maltster Reirke has suffered
deprivation of employment and been pre
vented from securing any work in this city
at his trade. It is represented that Reirke
is an expert in his business. He learned his
trade in Germany and is proficient in all the
processes of beer making. He came to this
country some years ago, and until J line 3 last
was a valued employe of the brewing com
pany. Prior to that time he was also a
member of the Browersand Matltaer* Union,
but fell behind in iiis dues a few payments.
He was notified of this and, it is alleged,
made a tender to the union of his dues, but
it is said the officials refused to accept the
money and dismissed him from the union.
Then Jung, it is alleged, in the cajmoity of
“walking delegate,” visited the brewery
where Reirke was employed and demanded
his discharge on |Miin of causing a general
strike. It Is alleged that Jung told the
foreman of the brewery that, unless Reirke
ivas discharged he would call off all mem
liers of the union employed at the brewery
and stop work. Roirke was given liis walk
ing pupers, and has been unable to obtain
employment since. He sues to recover the
full amount of wages he would have earned
during his period of enforced idleness.
COKE WORKERS TO CONVENE.
The Advisability of General Shut
Down to be Considered.
Pittsburg, July 18.—The striking coke
workers have called a convention at Ever
son to-morrow to consider the advisability
of causing a total susjiension of tho working
regions by calling upon those working at
the advance to come out uutil the strike is
settled. They think that a gen
eral shut down would soon compel
the operators, who want coke, to bring a
strong pressure to iiear on the others. An
attempt will probably also lie made to stop
the importation of new men by sending a
committee to New York to explain tho situa
tion to any whom tho agents may propose
to send. There is no change in the situation

THE TORIES YIELD A POINT OR

Third Time in the House of Lords.

Mr. Gladstone on receiving a copy of the
Political Revie w writes that it, like all other
such reviews, shows that the Liberals have
carried nine-tenths of the lieneflcial laws oil
all great subjects. This, he contends, pow
erfully accredits tho Liberal claim to popu
lar support. The Liberals, he says, have
suffered mainly from their own successes.
Many electors are moved more by a sense of
grievance than by a cordial love of improve
ment. When this grievance is removed
they lapse anil again become Conservatives.
Hence the Liberals have recruited for the
Tories. If the Tories hail had their way",
there would have been revolution in Eng
land long ago. The Unionists are laboring,!
Mr. Gladstone says, in conclusion, however 1
honestly and unconsciously, to disunite th
English and Irish peoples.
CONCESSIONS TO THE UNIONISTS.
Lord Hartington had an interview to-day
with Mr. Smith on the amendments to the
land bill. The meeting resulted in Mr.,
Smith’s acceptance of the mum proposals ofi
the Liberal unionist*. Lord Salisbury, at al

will announce the extent, of the concessions.
.Sir William Vernon Harcourt, speaking
at a meeting of the National Liberal Fedcra*
tion to-day, congratulated the party upon,
preserving admirable spirits, though in ai
minority, while the government was dis
mayed and discomfited. The recent elec
tions, he said, had shown that there were
only two parties in the State—Lilieral and
Tory. The Unionist masqueraders
either rejoin tho Liberals, as Mr. Trevelyan
ha<! done, or follow Mr. Goschen into the

Dum.iN, July 18.—Archbishop Walsh, of
Dublin, is endeavoring to induce the gov
ernment to susfiend further evictions in
Ireland until the land bill has been passed
by Parliament. He suggests that a con
ference on the subject behold by the leaders
of tho vurious parties.
REMONI) AND DAVITT HAVE A TILT.
Mr. Redmond, Nationalist member o|
Parliament, speaking at Coolgraney, saidi
he deeply respected Mr. Davitt* ser
vices, but regretted his latest speech
which amounted to a charge that wad
little short of folly against the advica
given by the Irish leaders and a charge of
cowardice against the people. The tenants*
Mr. Redmond said, ought not to engage ia
un unequal struggle against the bayonets of
t heir enemies. Mr. Davitt, replying to Mr.
Redmond, said ho would act in accordance
witli Mr. Parnell’s advice, but would not ba
dictated to by any sub-leader of the Irisbj
Air. Dillon, speaking at Arklow, thanked
tho people of Coolgraney for their admira
ble adherence to the plan of canqiaign. Ha
was unable to refrain from expressing r©<
gret at Air. Davitt’s speech finding fault
with the advice of the Dublin executive,
He desired to defend Air. Harrington, whose
official position precluded him from replying
liersomilly. He hoped tliul, in future them
petty differences would be settled in council
