4 HARD FIGHT TO EYICT.
BAILIFFS AND POLICE MET WITH
STONES AND HOT WATER.
Five Men and Four Women Barrioade
Themselves In a House for the Fray
—A Crowd of Howling Sympathizers
Surging About the Police on the Out
Dublin. Aug. 80.—The evictions on the
O’Grady estate at Herberlstown began to
day. Tbo bailiffs were re-enforced by 100
soldiers and 300 policemen. All the houses
occupied by tenants were barricaded and
guarded for the defense. The house of Mrs.
Crimmins, a widow, was the ilrst advanced
upon by the bailiffs. The widow and her
friends were well armed with paving stones
ind boiling water, mid both were showered
upon the bailiffs with such tolling effect
that they were repulsed no less than four
times. Tho Sheriff's men in their attacks
attempted to crowbar their way through
the walls and roof, and Mrs. Crimmins had
the scalding eater poured over their heads,
faces and necks. After the fourth repulse
of the bailiffs, police attempted to
storm the house. They also were
driven back. Finally, a joint rush was
made by tho bailiffs and police, and tbe
house was broken into ami captured. It
was found that the defenders numbered but
live men and four women. All were taken
prisoners. A large crowd had collected
about Vie bouse to witness tho contest. Tho
crowd all sympathized with Mrs. Crimmins,
and did all in their power to cheer her up
m her battle and to annoy and exasperate
When the widow's party were at last
overpowered the crowd became frantic aud
pressed closely up toward the house. The
prisoners, when they were led out, sang
‘•God Save Ireland.” The crowd joined in
the singing and became So demonstrative
that the police had to club their way out
with their batons.
Numerous tenant farmers in the county
Limerick have instructed their solicitors to
apply for a revision of rents under the
new land act.
A MEETING OF THE LEAGUE.
William O’Brien, editor of the United
Ireland, presided today over the fortnight
ly meeting of the Irish National League in
this city. Tho meeting was unusually large.
A number of Catholic clergymen were pres
ent. Mr. Harrington announced that
Charles Augustus Vansittart Conylieare
(Radical) member of Parliament for North
west Cornwall, and Charles Ernest
Schwann (Liberal), member for North
Manchester, had joined the league. Mr.
(.''Brian said that tlie first branch of the
1 ague against which tbe government should
issue a proclamation would hold its meet
ings with closed doors and refuse to open
them for tbo police even if they
and ’manded admittance. This would
lrave the police nothing to do but to break
their way in if they were determined to
enter. As tbe police would probably re
sort to this violence the central branch of
the league would then ask tho Lord Mayor
to grant the use of the city hall, with special
police to defend it during the league’s meet
ing therein. A majority of the Dublin City
Council, as well as the Lord Mayor, are
strong Nationalists and leaders in the league.

HEALY DENOUNCES BALFOUR.
11l the House of Commons this evening, in
the debate on the vote for the Irish Secre
tnry’s office, T. M Hoaly denounced Mr.
Balfour as a Scotchman ignorant and care
less of the duties of his office. He then
outdo a long and violent attack upon Col.
King Harman, the Under Secretary, and was
loamy called to order for referring to the
Under secretary as a convict because he
had once been imprisoned for making an
assault upon the police at Cromorne. Ho
accused Col. Hnrrnan of inducing Timex re
port to suppress his admission in the
House of Commons, that he had threateued
to shoot ouo Weldon. The chairman also
reminded Mr. Healy that Col. King
Harman was absent. Mr. Healy retorted
that he was within call proceeding. Mr.

on application from Mr. Balfour, ruled Mr.
Healy out of order. Mr. Healy accepted
the ruling, but refloated the allegation amid
an uproar oil both sides. After denounc
ing Col. King Hannan's connection with
Orangemen who, he said, had committed
•’>oo murders to the Ribbonmen’s one, Mr.
Healy declared that th" Pamellites objected
to dealing with the Secretary “through a
glass darkly." Since they had to deni with
Col. Harman, they preferred to deal with
him as Chief Secretary. At this point
( '"1. King Harman entered the house, and
fer his edification Mr. Healy re
lented the charges he lmd made.
He added that his appointment

Col. Harman was a landlord whose reuts

it was obviously wrong to place him in a

the uppoiutment of commissioners. Mr.
Healy moved to reduce tho rate to .ttl.OdO.
Other Parnellites continued the debate.
Mr. Balfour testified to the ability, effi
ciency and industry of Col. King Harman,
and accused the Parnollitos of inventing
and exaggerating the charges against him.
The Chairman called Mr. Balfour to order.
Mr. Balfour defended himself against tho
charges made agaiust him. He said that
few Chief Secretaries had been irishmen.
Mr. Smith repeated Mr. Balfour’s good
testimony regarding Col. King Harman,
and said lio hoped the time would come
when the Irish would cense such personal
ties, whereupon Mr. Bigger exclaimed:
“These remarks come witn peculiar force
from a vendor of ‘Parnellism and Crime.’ "
Mr. Hoaly’s motion was negatived by a
vote of 118 to 52.
LONDON’S PEACE SOCIETY.
John Bright Writes of the Blessings
London, Aug. 30. —John Bright, writing
to Secretary Jones, of the London Peace
Society, who is one of the deputation going
to the United States to present a memorial
to President Cleveland in favor of the es
tablishment of an international arbitration
treaty says; “There is talk of a permanent
arbitration treaty between the United States
and England. The project is a reasonable
one and discussion may lead to its adoption.
If the government of the United States
were willing and wore in any way to signify
its willingness to become a party to such a
treaty, there is a force of good men with us
to induce our government to consent. If
this be done it will be a grand step forward
iu the world’s march, and be followed in
some not distant time by other nationalities
willing to escape the sorry burden of mill
tary armaments. Two hundred mem
bers of the House of Commons
sign the arbitration memorial. But far
more than this number will be ready to
urge acceptance of the troaty upon our gov
ernment if the action taken at Washington
bo favorable to the success of the scheme.
England anil the United States will still re
main two nations, but I would have them
always regard themselves as one people. An
arbitration treat}’ honestly made, and ad
hered to would tend much to bring about
this blessed result.”
The London Standard Thinks There
Should be a Compromise.
London, Aug. 30. —The Standard, re
ferring to the Manitoba railway trouble,
says: “The more clearly the rights of the
question are understood the more emphatic
will be the opinion here that Mani
tobans are trying to derive
an unfair advantage from their
geographical position. The best prospect
tor a settlement lies in the direction of a
compromise, of which the preliminary
ought to be immediate suspension of opera
tions on the Manitoban railway line. No
effort should be spared to conciliate the
Manitobans, but they must be made to con
form to their duties as British subjects and

EXPRESS COMPANY TOLLS
JUDGE CHISOLM ANSWERS THE
A Claim that t'.'.o Act of Congress
Does not Oovfl' Companies Merely
Doing an Express Business An
Opinion by Chief Justice Waite on
W amiinuton, Aug, IK). — "W. H. Chisholm,
general counsel of the Southern Express
Company, lues submitted to the Interstate
Commerce Commission a printed answer to
the circular communication of the Com
mission, in which answer the company
argue* that it is not legally bound to fur
nish a schedule of rates. It is, says the
answer, a corporation established under tho
laws of Georgia, using various railroads,
steamboats, steamships and other vehicles
of oonveyauuo. The use of the
railroads has always been subject matter
of special contractu which dilfwr in their
terms and conditions, and are subject to
change or abrogation at the will of the rail
roads. The re.toe niul charges of the ex
press company arc therefore made up of an
estimated reasonable allowance for the use
of its own property and for the use of other
linos. W ith one railroad it may contract
for car space, with another upon the ton
nage basis, and to a third it may pay a per
centage of its revenues.
LEGALIZED TO MAKE SPECIAL RATES.
The answer quotes from an opinion by
Chief Justice Waite sustaining the rights of
an express company to make special con
tracts with railroads, and it likens the rela
tions of the express and tho railroad to those
between the railroads and the Poet Office
Department, or tho Western Union Tele
graph Company, it is submitted that legis
lation to reverse established legal principles
should certainly make some inference to the
law or principle to bo changed, yet section
ti of the interstate law not only contains no
reference to the express companies
but declares in unambiguous lan
guage tnat its provisions apply only
to railroads. The schedules provided for
are required to state places upon tho rail
roads and contain clnssiiication of freights
in force upon the same, and copies of the
schedule are required to bo kept in every
depot or station, yet the express company
owns no railroad, has no control over rail
road rates of classillcation, and has no
offices or agents in many depots of lines
with which it has contracts.
PUBLICATION OF SCHEDULES.
The sixth section, it is averred, no more
requires the publication of schedules of
rates, fares, charges and classifications by
express companies than by other customers
of railroads. Again it is asked how would
it bo practicable for the respondent to make
joint contracts with several railroad
lines with some of which it may
have percentage and with others space
on tonnage contracts. And what would be
the condition of the respondent if forced to
make joint contracts in case one or more of
the lines observed the contracts and others
did not The statute makes provisions for
the protection of the innocent rail lino in
such case, but no provision is made for the
protection of the express company.

whether Mr. Randall will bo able to control

declaration on tho tariff the resolutions
adopted by the Chicago National Conven
tion in IHAi. or whether Congressman Scott
and Mr. Hingerly, of the Philadelphia
Record, will bo able to commit the party to
the more pronounced utterance of
President Cleveland in favor of reform of
the tariff. All other issues havo been for tho
moment cast aside, while tho battle royal
upon this question has been waged by the
loaders aud delegates. Mr. Randall was
early on the ground, and this morn

the hotel Allen, where he has been assisted
by Congressman Sowden, Gov. Curtin and
others all day long in work among the dele
gates. At 5 o’clock Messrs. Scott and
Singerly an-ived, and the fight soon became
as interesting as any one could

Veritable Demons of the Plains.
Chicaoo, Aug. 30. —The Times' Houston,
Tex., special says: “On Wednesday last
four of a gang of horse thieves which had
been making raids near here for some tint*
rode to Thompson's Switch, a small station
seventy -seven miles from Houston, mounted
on thoroughbred horses. They ordered din
ner, after which they got drunk, fired off
their pistols and terrified the inhabitants of
the settlement, when they rode off in a
northwesterly direction. On Saturday
John Williford, a farmer and stockman of
(Jypreaston, reported to Sheriff Ellis that ha
hud two horses stolen from him Thursday,
and that the thieves were still in the vicinity
of his farm.
SHERIFFS ON THEIR HEELS.
“Sheriff Ellis at once left for Navassla,
where ho organized a posse and started af
ter the outlaws, i:i the hope of heading
them off. Yesterday morning two men
rode lap) Houston, uml notified Deputy
Sheriff Altiert Krichson that the outlaws
werocuuqied ut Eureka, five miles from this
city. Deputy Krichson mounted u horse
and immediately started for the camp of
the outlaws. On arriving at. the spot where
tile outlaws were cainiKxi, Erichsou discov
ered that the gang Imd gone. After n-.i'ig
about for some time the Deputy found three
men camped under a tree on the prairie. He
at once telegraphed Houston for as
sistance, and a posse, under command
of ( apt. Lubbock immediately left for the
scone of action. On arriving at Eureka the
posse parted, Deputy Sheriff Erichsou and
a part of the posse proceeding in the direc
tion of SmokeyviUc, and the remainder un
der C'apt. Lubbock heading for the prairie.
A RUNNING FIGHT.
“The latter posse soon struck the trail,and
in a short, whilo located the outlaws, who
were still comped under the lone tree.
I 'apt. Lubbock then formed his posse in
line, about fifteen feet apart, and advising
all to reserve their fire until within thirty
yards (if the outlaws, begun advancing to
ward the camp. The outlaws seeing this,
quickly saddled their animals and started
out at a quick gallop. After riding
a few minutes the leader of the outlaws,
who was riding n magnificent roan horse,
threw his Winchester on his loft arm, and
slightly turning in iiis saddle, began shoot
ing his iiflo v sending shot after shot at the
officers. The other outlaws, who were
armed with six shooters, also liegan firing
at tho posse. ('apt, Lubbock’s men reserved
their fire as ordered, until it was evident
that the outlaws would reach the timber.
The command to fire on the outlaws was
then given, and atsmt forty or fifty shot*
were exchanged, the outlaws halting aud
making a desperate fight.
“During the skirmish the horse of Capt.
Lubbock was killed. One of the German
citizens, named Kassnor, who lives near
Hockley, nnd accompanied the party, was
wounded in the arm by a rifle fiall. After
the encounter on tho prairie, Capt. Lub
bock returned to the city, and another party
started out in pursuit It is learned that
the Se -geant of a convict camp near Ciollis,
on the Internationa* road, had a pack of
I fiord munds ou tit trail, but withdrew
them for tear the outlaws would kill them.
From the peculiar method the outlaws had
of lying low on their horses, and their
quick wheeling in running and firing, it is
thought they wero iart of the old
.Sam Bass gang, who defied the
State authorities of Texas a few
years ago. From large rolls
of money displayed by the outlaws on their
visit and drunken spree at Thompson’s
Switch, it. is confidently thought that they
are the same gang who robbed tho Southern
Pacific train at, Flatonia in June. A dis
patch was received from Sheriff Ellis nt
Cyresss last night Htatlng that he was on a hot
trail, and oxpected to Hag liis game before
daylight. The robbers are plucky and des
perate, and a bloody battle is anticipated
should they be discovered.”
