Balfour, chief secretary for Ireland,
announced in the House of Commons
that the eovcrnmuit had proclaimed the
Irih National League, ; The Govern
ment had thus taken the power conferred
Uon them by that etntute to prohibit
and suppress the League. The Pall Mall
Gazette very vigorously attacks the gov
emment party for ad iptlng in the House
of Commons t ho Iuxrl of Cadogan's
amendment to the Irish Land bill relat
ing to town prks. The Gazette urges the
Liberals to revolt against the govern
ment's Irish policy in the House of Com
mons, toobstincttue passage of supplies
measures, and thus force dissolution
Mr. Parnell, aaid that the action of the
government in proclaiming the League
was a f rntuitious insult to the
Irish, considering the present condition
of Ireland. It was merelv a move to
cover the weakness of the land bill. If
the bill did not protect ' tenants from
eviction, trouble would be inevitable dur
ing the coming winter. A riot occurred
at Kcnmare, County Kerry. Ireland, and
t mob attacked and stoned the barracks
where the police were quartered.
The police charged with drawn
swords upon the rioters, injuring many
of them and arresting a number.
The Irishmen of Liverpool adopted
resolutions protesting against the proc
lamation of the Irish National League.
Similar resolutions were adopted at n
meeting of radicals in London. A dele
gation of members of the English home
rule union will soon visit Ireland in order
to give expression to the good-will of
English liberals toward the - Irish. A
public reception will be given the dele
gation in Dublin on September 14th, at
which the Lord Msyor will pw.-ide, Mr.
Gladstone's declaration in favor of the
Channel tunnel is, whatever else may be
said of it, n tactical mistake. Till he
poke, the great majority of Englishmen
regarded the tunnel scheme aa dead and
buried and took a humorous view of Pir
Edward Wstkins's fitful effort at resur
rection. Mr. Gladstone's language re
vives their fears. There sre largo num
bers of . Englishmen who consider
the question whether a tunnel shall be
made under the channel as considerably
more vital than the question whether
Ireland shall have home rule. The effect
of Mr. Gladstone's uncalled-for profession
of faith in this scheme will be to alienate
the votes of such Englishmen.

Emigrant train No. 83, going on the
Baltimore &Ohio Railroad, ran into a
freight train at the Easton siding, twenty
miles east of Wheeling, W. Va. A. F.
Smith, engineer of the emigrant train,
and Isaac Arbuthnot, fireman, were in
stantly killed. The engineer and fireman
of the freight tram were only alightly in
jured. Fifteen of the emigrants are
seriously, but none were fatally hurt.
Smith and Arbuthnot lived in Wheeling
where they have families. The accident
was the result of a misapprehension of
orders on the part of the engineer of the
freight train, who thought he had the
right-of-way and pulled out of the siding
just as the emigrant train came up. The
Baltimore & Ohio express train which
left Pittsburg, Pa., jumped the track at
Hermitage station, six miles east of Con
nellsvillo, badly wrecking the engine and
and baggage can, which went over an
embankment. One passenger coach was
derailed, but none of the passengers were
injured.; The train men escaped by
jumping, the only person hurt being the
fireman, who broke his leg. A passen
ger trail on the Peoria, Decatur & Eyans
ville Rlulroad was derailed near Salt
creek, Ho. The engine-and all the cars
left the rails while going forty miles an
hour. Fortunately, the entire train re
mained on the grade and came to a stand
still, after bumping on the ties two hun
dred fast Search was made for the
cause o the accident and was discovered.
The fist plates and spikes had been re
moved from the rails. In weeds on the
bank a crowbar and other tools were
found, with which the work .had been
done. There is no doubt the purpose of
the fiends was to rob the train. A freight
train following close behind was stopped
a few yards from the derailed passenger
train, and thns what might have been a
horrible disaster was averted. On the

It was decided to clean out' the well
on tbe Woolfolk place near Macon, Ga.,
the residence of tbe late Capt. Woolfolk,
who was so brutally murdered with his
family. After going don pretty deep
a pair of socks was found ail blood
stained, which were identified as the
socks commonly worn by Tom Woolfolk.
This adds another lit k to the chain whu h
is already drawing about the neck of the
murderer. The searchers hoped to find
hi pistol in tbe well, but they failed,
as it hud been either sold or pawned in
Macon before the deed was committed.
Shortly after the discovery of the mur
ders, a photographer took a large and
life-liko picture of the horrid scene,
which was shown Tom Wolfolk in his
cell at the Atlanta jail by a fellow-prisoner.
His eyes came in contact with it, but
rested there but a second only. Then
they rolled quickly away and about the
cell. As quickly, however, they re
turned to the picture, and then away
again. A fascination drew bia eyes to
wards it as rapidly as some unexplained
feeling carried them away. The fascina
tion mastered the situation, and in less
time than it takes to tell it, the prisoner's
eyes were riveted upon the picture. The
gsze was intent and ateady, and as the
outlines began to be defined, Woolfolk
began to tremble. The tremble soon be
came a shake, and raising both hands to
bis face as if to ahut out the horrible
bloody vision, he turned upon his heels,
.saying: "Oh, my God I that is horrible I"

Mr. Collier, of Chicago, was granted
an audience by the Bueen at the Oborne
house, when he presented to her majesty
an address of Chicagoans of British birth
and parentage in honor of her jubilee.
The queen then handed a document to
Mr. Collier, which read as follows: "I
thank you for the adaress you have pre
sented to me. Coming, as it does, from
persons of English birth beyond the seas,
who retain feelings of love for their
mother country, and sympathy for her
welfare. I receive it with pleasure and
satisfaction. That the people of Chicago
should have given expression to these
kind sentiments, not only toward tho
Anglo-Saxon race in these realms, but
also toward myself, is to me a source of
much gratification, and sustains me in
the belief that the friendship and good
will which now exists between tiie two
countries, and which I have always en
deavored to promote, are of a real and
enduring character." Mr. Collier was
driven to Cowes in the royal carriage.
He returned to London in the evening.
Being asked if he kissed the queen's
hand, he replied: "No; that would be
improper, aa I am not a British subject
I am proud to be an American citizen."
