NEW HOME RULE SCHEME.
A CLAIM THAT THE LIBERALS
HAVE ACCEPTED IT.
Ireland Given a National Legislature
and Executive—No Separation of
Ulster- Irish Members to Continue to
Sit in Parliament—The Powers of the
London, Aug. 3. —The laud bill passed
through the committee stage in the House
o! Commons this forenoon. Sir Goorgo
Trevelyan’s victory continues to bo of ab
sorbing interest. The London and provin
cial Conservative newspujiers agree in say
ing that the election is an ominous fact, anil
that it would be unwise to attempt to ignore
or 'extenuate its significance. The Glad
stoninn papers aro confident that an imme
diate general election would result in the
return of a home rule majority.
The same view is shared by the Ministerial
ists, which fact leads to a free expression of
opinion that the government, being sure of
a compact majority during tho run of the
present Parliament, will not risk dissolution
until the end of the natural term, live years
hence, when Mr. Gladstone will probably
be dead, or his powers weakened. “Time is
on our side,” is an argument of the Unionist
mpers. Another argument is, “there is no
reason why the Ministers need appeal to the
country duriug the next five years.”
A NEW HOME RULE SCHEME
The Pall Mall Go ref to publishes anew
home rule scheme purporting to have been
accepted by tho Littoral leaders. This
scheme gives Ireland a national legislature
anu executive. There is to be no separation
of Ulster. The Irish members will continue
to sit in the imperial Parliament in their
present numbers. The powers of the Irish
Parliament shall he delegated, matters to he
controlled in Dublin being clearly defined
and also subject to revision by the imperial
Parliament. The appointment of Judges to
tvtuuiu in office fifteen years is to be vested
in the itu|tcrial government and afterwards
vested in the Irish government. The police
arete be similarly treated. Customs and
excise arc to remain under imperial control.
The proportion of tho Irish quota to the
imperial expenditure shall not be
more than one-fifteenth. The land
question is left to the Irish Parliament.
DOUBT WHETHER IT IS OFFICIAL
It is doubtful whether this statatement is
official. The statement is valuable, how
ever, as indicating the line of the amended
Silky of Messrs. Morley, Trevelyan anil
aicourt, which probably was assented to
by Mr. Gladstone and is satisfactory to the
Liberals generally. The manifesto of the
Prohibition party convokes a temperance
convention in London to organize
an effort to elect, to Parliament
and to municipal councils only
such candidates as favor prohibition.
After the debate on the report stage of the

Opening the Convention With a High
Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. B.—Tho dele
gates to tho seventeenth General Convention
of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of
America, before entering upon business,
proceeded in a body to the cathedral to en
gage in tho solemn services of high mass.
Ihe delegates numbered about 400, and
among them wore many of tho reverend
clergy, who are active members of tho total
abstinence societies. Archbishoi) Hyau was
the celebrant of pontifical high nines.
Bishop Moore, of St. Augustine, Fla., occu
pied a seat within the chancel. Tho music
of tho muss was finely rendered, and when
all tho lights were ablaze, tho scene present
ed was one of unusual brilliancy. The ser
mon was preached bv Rev. James M.
Cleary, of Kenosha, Wis., President of tho
Catholic Total Abstinence Union of Amer
ica, who took the place of Bishop Ireland,
of Minnesota. The latter wax unavoidably
detained at homo, and only at the Inst mo
ment was it learned that he could not be
opening the session. •
The convention met at the Walnut Street
Theatre at 2 o’clock and was called to order
by the President, Rev. James Cleary, who
opened the session with prayer.
Reports were presented from subordinate
unions after which T. V. Powderly, who
entered tho theatre, wax recolvocf with
much applause, and a motion to suspend
the order of business and listen to Mr. Pow
derly was adopted. That gentleman, how
ever, said that ho merely appeared to
gratify the desire of the delegates to
see him, and that he would speak at the
public meeting at tho Academy of Music in
tho evening. The report of General Secre
tary Nolan showed that there were now
affiliated with the general uuion twenty
two subordinate unions and fifty detached
societies. During tho year there have been
admitted 140 societies and 235 wero dropixxl,
leaving the present number at 757 with a

The Committee on Credentials reported
342 delegates in attendance.
After the appointment of committees on
constitutional amendments and resolutions,
the convention adjourned until to-morrow
the night’s speeches.
Fully 3,000 people crowded tho Academy
of Music this evening, one-third of the
audience consisting of ladies. On the plat
form were seated many ol' the visitors and
invited guests of the union. Among these,
aside from the speakers of the evening, were
Secretary Litchman, of the Executive
Board of the Knights of Labor: John W.
Hayes, of the Executive Board of the
Knights of Labor; State Senator McAlecr;
Rev. J. J. Eltvx-k. of Philadelphia; and
Rev. P. A. McKenna, of Marlboro,
Mass. The speeches of the evening
were characterized by a wide range
of thought on the temperance question, and
considering the condition of the mercury,
were marked by acceptable brevity. The
address of Rev. Thomas J. Conaty, of Wor
cester, Maas., rel erred particularly to the
progress of the Irish race in the Northeast.
The Boston of to-day, he said, was not the
Boston of Winthrop, but the Boston of the
O’Briens and Collinses. The Irish
there had made a record of which they
might well be proud, and they were deter
mined now to be sober men, and to be in
tlieir lives what God destined they should be.
Master Workman Powderly, of the
Knights of Labor, in the course of
his remarks, stated that he had never
tasted intoxicating liquor. Ho had been
among all nationalities, and had always
found that tho one great curse of life was
intemperance. Wherever ho found mis
fortune and sorrow he could trace its
source to liquor. Among the speakers
were Rev. Walter Elliott, of New York;
Hon. J. P. Thompson, of Louisville, Ky.;
Rev. Patrick Corrigan, of Hoboken, N. J.,
and John O’Brien, of Stillwater, Minn.,
President of the State Union, who brought
the evening's addresses to a close in an ear
nest appeal in behaif of temperance.
SINKING OF THE EARTH. .

Chicago, Aug. 3.—A special from Evans

shock and "had Barely jumped to t heir feet
when the earth with a shaking, dizzy mo
tion suddenly sank 5 feet, carrying the
houses and the terrified negroes with it.
The scenes that ensue I baffled description.
The negroes fell on tlieir knees and in
frenzied tones prayed the I xird to save them.
Others Began shouting and praying to the
Almighty, and ever and anon casting an up

gradually became louder, and numerous
springs hidden for years suddenly found
opening, and Began to bubble upward in
cimstnntlv increasing streams. The terri
fied inhabitants, not stopping for household
poods or chattels, rushed away from the
doomed spot, and some of them are still
putting as much distance Between them and
the sinking laud as possible. The loss to
property is incalculable. A largo area of
corn ana tobacco is a total loss.

by tliut association repudiating the utter
ances of certain members of tho Grand

commending the President’s veto of tho

presented to the president.
To-day lie called on the President, and in
presenting them said:
Ms. PsKiiinitNT At tho request of the Nation
al Veterans’ Association, of Deis Moines, la.. In
muxs convention assembled on the lfith day of
July ult., 1 have the honor to present to you
this ensjroesod copy of resolutions then passed,
declaring the views of thoso veterans respect
ing the attempts of certain officers anil mout
hers of the society of the Grand Army of the
Republic to prevent the President of tlio United
States from accenting tho hospitalities
tendered to him by the city of St. Louis on the
occasion of the meeting of tho National En
campment ol' the Grand Army of the Republic,
which had voted to become her guests. Asa
member of that society It affords me pleasure
to perform this doty, and to state my concur
rence in the sentiments expressed in those reso
lutions. I am pleased to say that I believe the
general tenor of these resolutions is in
accord with the views and feelings of
a vast majority of tho members
of the Grand Army of tbe Remihllo us to the
loyal respect due the Chief Magistrate of tho
Union, and as to the impropriety of denouncing
him for doing wbut ho believes to be his official
duty. I feel equally assured that those senti
ments will command the assent of that much
larger body of Union soldiers now belonging to
the society of the Grand Army of the Republic
who are surviving members of the real Grand
Army of tho Republic, which, after hating
saved the nation s life, dissolved uud Joined the
great industrial body which assures the
weulth, glory and prosperity of our country.
President Cleveland replying to Gen.
Without reading the resolutions presented by
you in such a gratitling manner, I bane only to
say that, judging from the tenor of your re
marks the action of the veterans mentioned is
in the direction of acknowledging the duty
which devolved upon them as veterans to em
phasize the value of their services in the
field by patriotic services at home, and
to demonstrate the same bravery shown In bat
tle by courage no less conspicuous when called
upon to defend and maintain the freedom and
patriotism which in peace is tho sufetv of
American institutions. Understanding this to
be the case and purpose of the resolutions I am
glad to receive them at your hands.
Mr. Whitehead, in his letter to Gen. Rose
erans, asks the General to present these
resolutions in the name of at least 10,000 ex-
Union soldiers of lowa.
DR. SAUNDERS INDIGNANT.
He Did Not Run Away to Avoid
Birmingham, Aug. 3.—The dispatch sent
out from Huntsvillo, last night, to the As
sociated Press, contains several erroneous
statements concerning Dr. William H.
Saunders, of the State Board of Color
Blind Examiners. The dispatch stated that
Dr. Saunders had abandoned his work of
examining men at Stevens and run away to
Birmingham. He Is here to-day, and is
indignant at the position in which the dis
patch places him. He states, and his as
sertion is corroborated by all tbe members
of the board, that he was summoned by tel
egram to attend a meeting of tho board
which was held to-day to dispose of
a number of doubtful cases
involving color blindness and defective
sight. Dr. Saunders admits that there is
great reluctance to comply with the law in
the northern part of the State. lie declares
that there were only about 4,(XX) men in the
State to be examined, 3,500 of whom had at
tended, and only about 4 (ter cent, of these
failed to obtain certificates. Most of the
railroad men in the State refuse to pay the
foe of $3 per candidate allowed the examiner
An Amicable Settlement of the Trouble
Chicago, Aug. 3. —A special from Otta

the Fisheries informed tho Times corre
spondent last night that an order had boon
issued by the government releasing, on cer
tain condition of their paying a mere
nominal fine, all the American
fishing schooners recently seized within
the alleged prescribed three mile
limit. There is evidently something in the
wind, anil developments toward an amica
ble settlement of the fishery trouble are
daily being received by the officials of the
department. It is evident that a climax
has lieen reached, and that an amicable set
tlement of the great fishery troubles is in
the near future.

Beerutary Fairchild said this afternoon,
in explanation of his action offering to an
ticipate interest on the public debt and to
purchase bonds, that he did it simply be
cause he regarded it as the best thing that
could be done under the circumstances. Tho
purchase of bonds, he said, is for the pur
pose of providing for tho sinking fund, and
anticipation of interest is for the
purpose of gotting rid of the surplus. The
latter operation, he said, is only what any
good Business inun would do to discount his
obligations. Anticipation of interest is one
of two means given to the Secretary of
tho Treasury for disposing of surplus
funds, and he regarded it as
the cheapest and most advantageous. The
interest covered by the circular amounts to
$223,107 84. It is impossible just now to
state tho exact amount of the rebate. The
sinking Tund requirements ill amount to
about SB6,(XX).OOu in addition .) $20,030,000
of 3 |>er cent. txmds already applied. The
surplus, said Secretary Fairchild, can lie
put out only through tho eo-oiK-ration of the
bondholders ami if they do not accept, the
terms of the proposition made to them it
would seem that they are not in very great
need of money.

Washington, Aug. 3.—A meeting of the
Cabinet was held last evening at the Presi

by all the members except Secretary Bayard
and Attorney General Garland. The former

impossible to learn the object of the meet

Tho Physicians All Confident That It

Petersburg, Va., Aug. B.—Tho only
witness examined in the Langston-Ktiftlu
murder trial to-day was Dr. R. D.Mcllwaino,
who was kept continuously on the stand,
with tho exception of a recess taken for
dinner, from 9 o’clock in the morning until
7 o’clock at night. Ruffin was Dr. Mell

to his treatment, then to tho post mortem
and the facts revealed thereby, and then as
to the general eourso and treatment of gun
shot wounds. Tho jury appeared weary
with the two days mass of export testi

days more of it before the evidence for the

they are kept together the white and colored

A LIVELY TIME IN COURT.
BOODLER WREN RAGES AT BEING
CALLED A PERJURER.
Ho Repeatedly Calls the Assistant
State's Attorney a Liar -Tho Judge
Also Grows Excitod at the Accused’s
Contempt of Court -The Defense
Pleads the Statute of Limitation.
Chicago, Aug. 3. —The defeuse hi tho
boodle trial rested tlieir case this morning.
Practically, no testimony was produced on
behalf of the accused except a general de
nial from each of them and evidence ns to
their previous good charnotor. Judge Jami
son immediately limited tho lawyers to two
hours each In ploodlug, and the speeches be
Tho first, address was made by Assistant
State’s Attorney Walkor. It was a terrific
excoriation of the defendants, particularly
of Commissioner Wren. As Mr. Walker
went on with his denunciation of Wren,
the faeo of the huge defendant grow pale
with anger uud pulsion. Ho tried to smile
at first, but gradually his brew became
overcast, and when Mr. Walker alluded to
the fact in tlio record that Wren had
forged Mr. Walker’s name to a bill
for buggies supplied to the county
by him (Wren) under Mr. Walker’s name
he turned round, and, pointing to Mr.
Wren, said, solemnly; “And when ho said
in court that ho did not know his own writ
ing when his forgery was placed under his
eyes he |KU'jured himself. Don Wren is a
“You’re a liar I" camo thundering from
the defendant's corner, and the ponderous
Commissioner reso steaming with passion.
Instantly oil was in commotion.
Mr. Walker’s face turned crimson uud
his eyes sparkled like lire. “Yes,” ho cried,
“I repoat it—Dan W ren, you're a perjurer I”
“kou’ru a liar; you’re a liar," yelled Wreu,
os with clenched hands and teeth he ad
vanced toward the State's advocate.
But now it was Judge Jameson’s turn.
“Oouao this moment,” exclaimed tho court
the moment the interruption came from
Wren, und lie hit tlio desk a blow with his
hands. When Wren repeated iiis insulting
remarks the Ju.lgo turned pale and then
turned rod. “Don’t let uie hoar another
word out of your mouth, Wren,” he thun
dered, and in another moment Wren hud
been forced into liis seat by a pair of Builiffs
At once Wren's attorney, Col. Mumi,
sprung to hie feet und tried to address the
Tho oourt, angrily and decisively—l will
hoar nothing. Uo on Mr. Walker.
Col. Munn—lf tlio court please—
The Court—l won’t hoar any speech from
the counsel or anybody. Goon Mr. Walker.
Col. Munn (excitedly)— If the courtpleose,
Ido not want to make any speech; I want
to exercise our right of making an explana
tion to the remarks of Mr. Walker.
The Court —Well, take your exceptions
without making any speech alsjut it. Go
on Mr. Walker.
The speuker renewed his assertion that
Wren had repeatedly committed perjury.
