A nyxterlouf) Epidemic Breaks
Out In I.Ubon,
London, July 10.—In a debate on the
criminal law amendment hill in tlie house
of commons last night Samuel Morley,
one of the gentlemen to whom the Pall
Mall Gazette said it was willing to piove
the truth of its revelations with full
names,. details, etc., said he was willing
to join one or two ethers of those men-
tioned and Investigate the truth of the
Gazette's statements. Besides Mr.Morley,
the Gazette offers to sukuiit the details
to the Bishop of Canterbury. Cardinal
Manuing, Earl Shaftsbury, Earl Dalhou-
sle or Howard Vincent, and Mr. Morley
has arranged for a meeting in the house
of commons on Tuesday to discuss the
protection of young giris. The govern-
ment after much meditation decided it
Cannot support Mr. "Parnell's motion to
inquire iuto the conduct of the officials at
Maam Basma and Bar Barrilla. This
decision will probably result in the Par-
nellltes withdrawing their support. The
house agreed to the government's pre-
position to issue fa00,000 in treasury
bi'ls to meet the deficits of lost year. On
the criminal law amendment bill during
the debate strong feeliug was displayed
botli for and against the bill, it was ul-
timately ordered to a third reading,which
practically insures its passage.
London, Jnly 10.—The most impor-
tant speech made by the Marquis of,Salis-
bury since his accession to office was
made in the house of Lords, and lie dealt
only with the foreign relations of the
country and plainly intimated that the
Tories had a policy of their own to en-
force, both in regard to Russia and
Egypt. He said the government felt
obliged to fulfill the pledges given by the
preceding cabinet. In regard to the
Afghan difficulty, it was true an agree-
ment had been made, but the country
could not rely upon promises alone. It
was the government's duty to do all that
was passible to defend the frontier with
a lirm front and to roll back the tide of
This announcement elicited , grcafc
cheering. The premier intimated that
the government did not intend to aban-
don the Soudan .vet, but recognized its
obligations to establish a stable govern-
ment before withdrawing from the coun-
try . The speech creates a very favor-
able impression, exccpt among the radi-
cals, who profess ultra peace ideas and
deprecate a possible reopening of a dan-
The unsuccessful attempt of Mr. Brad-
laugh to obtain recognition as member
from Northampton in the house of com-
mons, was the tamest of the many simi-
lar demonstrations by the famous agita-
tor, and attracted little attention.
Mr. John Dillon, formerly a intinber
of Parliament for Tipperary, arrived at
Liverpool on the Gallia, hut seems de-
termined to keep out of Ireland and out
of politics for the present. When the
steamer arrived at Queenstown,though it
was hardly daylight, a large crowd and a
brass baud were found on the dock wait-
ing to welcome him back to Ireland and
to present hlni with an address prepared
at a public meeting, but he declined to
land, pleading lack of time, and pro-
ceeded on the Gallia to Liverpool, much
to the chagrin of his friends.
He was requested to contest a division
of one of the English towns at the com-
ing general election, but he declined, on
the plea that he iutended to remain only
one year in England.
Cor.sul General Waller u organizing an
American relief Society fur the benefit of
citizens of the United States who become
stranded 111 London. In most cases the
embarrassment of the^e sojourners is only
temporary and could be remedied at once
if they were at home, but thore lias hith-
erto been no organized system for tiding
them over their troubles, and they have
been compelled to seek charity or suffer
until they could hear from home.
The new society proposes to do for such
persons in London ju»t what the St."
George's, St. Andrew's and St. Patrick's
societies do for all impecunious English-
men and irishmen in New York.
Mr. Waller has already enlisted the
hearty support of many prominent Amer-
ican residents in London.

Citv ok Mexico, July 10, 1883.
The editors and students who were im-
prisoned on account of the English debt
demonstration a few days ago, are still
in prison, but no furt her arrests have
been made since, and all is qu'.et at pre-
sent. Xo immediate further trouble is
feared just now.
The cause of the arrests above referred
to was that a proclamation, addressed to
the people and signed by several students,
was found placaided on the dead walls.
The document stated that the iccent de-
cree for the conversion of the debt was
humiliating to the people, and the sign-
ers of it protested that the law was one
of the most tyrannical ever registered in
the history of arbitrary governments. It
calls attention to the protest agaiust the
recognition of the English debt during
Gonzales' administration, a protest writ-
ten in the blood of the people. A call
was a!?'o rjiade for a popular demonstra-
tion of^ disapproval of the decree. The
government took immediate measures to
guard against au outbreak. All the
troops in the city were ordered to remain
in their barracks. The utterances of cer-
tain journals lately have been extremely
violent and denunciatory to the govern-
A veiy rich silver vein was found yes-
terday by William Davis in tiue San Lo-
renzo mountains, twenty- five miles west
of Jimulco. Several carefully conduct-
ed assays show the average Value of the
ore to be 8450 to the ton. This is near
the Nazas liyer and not far from the El
Banco mine, which is owned by Col.

Moum McGregor, July 10.—There
are rumors direct from Mount McGregor
of slight abrasion between Mrs. Grant
and the owners of that resort. The offer
of accommodation there was ou tho basis
of a glad gratuity. Banker Drexel, a
heavy shareholder, gave up his lnu»c,
and the meals and service are provided
from the hotel. The aim was to adver-
tise -fount McGregor, which is a beauti-
ful but hitherto little known resort. Pla-
cards and hand bills have, beeu widely
distributed in Saratoga and elsewhere,
announcing excursions over the compa-
ny's railroad to the top of the mounfain,
and containing the big type name of
Grant to catch the eye. Mrs. Grant, is
vastly annoyed by the staring of visitors.
The general long ago became used to
sii':h impertinence, and sits daily <xu the
veranda stoically enduring it in perfect
calmness; but his wife frequently seeks
to have tiiani driven olf, as do the other
ladiss of the household. But the man-
agement naturally do not wish to shut
out the sight for which the tourists come,
and they decline to do more than pre-
vent au actual intrusion upon the Imme-
All the Grants except Buck, who is
farming in New Jersey, are dally group-
ed on tho veranda, and sightseers can
approach close enough to be a decided
nuisance to them. They have been pho-
tographed repeatedly by amateurs and
professionals, using instantaneous appa-
ratus. Gen. Grant himself sits most of
the time storing into vacancy, oblivious
of his surrounding, but now and then a
movement among the spectators rouses
him, and then he will often lift his hat iu
acknowledgement of a salutation. The
sentinel who has been mentioned as on
guard against intruders is of little use. He
is a comical old crank, it is so easy to
get past him that patent medicine men
and peddlers have gained access to the
A burial place for Grant has not been
selected. Discussion wf the topic is dis-
tasteful to the family, and the General
himself lias said nothing about it. There
is a beautiful cemetery, called Oakwood,
in Troy, alwut thirty mile6 from Mount
McGregor, and the trustees have resolved
to offer a plot close by one iu which He
the remains of Gen. Wool, a veteran
commander in the war with Mexico, and
under whom Grant served as a lleutmant.
Wool's nijnument is notable as the lar-
gest single stone ever quarried iu Ameri-
ca, and the site overlooks the Hud on
Grant and a Priest.
Mount McGregor, July 10.—Rev.
Father Didier of Baltimore called on
General Grant yesterday, *nd in response
to the statement of the priest that they
were all praying for him, he wrote: '-Yes,
I know, and I feel very grateful to the
christian people of the land for their
prayers in my behalf. There is uo sect
•ir religion, as shown In Old or New Tes-
tiraenc, to which this does not apply.
Catholics, Protestants and Jews, and all
the good people of the nation, of all poll-
tics as well as religions, and all natio-
nalities, seem united in wishing for or
praying for my improvement. I am a
great sufferer all the time, but the facts I
have related have compensated for much
of it. All I can do is to pray that tho
prayers of all the good people may be
answered, so far as that we may meet In
another and a better world. I caunot
speak, even iu a whisper."

Washington, July 10.—The Star says
the President is preparing to depart from
Washington for a summer vacation. His
plans have been arranged and it is ex-
pected lie will be able to get away with-
in a day or two. His plans have beeu
made vary quietly and he will probably
leave as soon as the appointed tune ar-
riyes without making any previous an-
nouncement. The President wants a
period of perfect rest and does not pro-
pose to be followed iu his recreation.
Office-seekers will wake up some morn-
ing very soon and find the White house
Appointment Clerk Hifflu.
Washington, July 10.—The much
discussed and roundly abused Higgins is
again to the front. The New York
Times prints a column and a half letter
from its Washington oorrespondem, iu
which Higgins is severely handled aud
emphasized it by au editorial paragraph
calling for Higgins' immediate retire-
ment. This is the opening guu of a fire
which is to be general among the mug-
wump and republican papers, and which
is to bo continued, it is threatened, uutil
the object of it is officially no more.
Higgius takes the matter very coolly,
and is eveu indifferent as to the result.
His friends declarc that he has found his
office no sinecure, and his path beset by
so much criticism and so many annoy-
ances that to escape from it all, even at
a very dear price, might not be unwel-
come to him. It is even reported that
the secretary of the treasury has called for
Higgins' resignation, but this is not gen-
It is most likely that even should Hig-
gins lose his present place he will be
given another. Senator Gorman is still
backing him, and while the senator baa
not been called for much with the ad-
ministration lately, he probably could
command a place somewhere for a per -
so ial friend and near political ally like
Washington, July 10.—It is noted
here that there are very few leaves of ab-
sence bdng applied for by clerks iu the
departments. Heretofore at this season
the clerks have sighed, like millionaires,
for the seashore or the mountain resorts
and have, disappeared from their desks by
the hundreds. Now, however, it is
thought to be too risky to be absent for a
dsy. There is an atmosphere of business
about this administration, from the Presi-
dent down, wliloh seems to nerve certain
people up to greater and longer continu-
ed exc.-tions than ever before was known.
It is one, and uot the least one, of faany
signs of the new times.
The new pension building is almost
ready for occupancy. A portion of the
office force Is already installed there.
The President was so busy yesterday
that lie was obliged to excuse himself to
tboso who had gathered in. the east room
for regular afternoon reception. He and
the postmaster-general are busily engag-
ed together examining the papers of ap-
plicants for presidential postofflces. Be-
ginning today, the postmaster-general
will devote two weeks to the considera-
tion of these cases, to the exclusion of all

Washington, July 10.—A dispatch
was received at the offioe of the Com-
missioner of Indian affairs from Inspec-
tor Armstrong at Fort Reno, reporting
that some of the Indians have broken
awav from the reservation and gone into
the Panhandle of Texas. Secretary I>a-
mar sent the dispatch to the President.
Austin, July 10.—When the news of

New York, July 10.—The Sun's Lon-
don special says: The people of Rome,
and especiall}' the tradesmen and real
estate owners, are alarmed over an intri-
gue betweeu the Vatican and the Italian
cabinet to secure the removal of the cap-
ital from that city. The.pope is declared
to be urging the cabinet to make Naples
the capital of the kingdom, which would
leave him more freedom of action than
in Rome. The prime minister is favora-
bly impressed with the proposed remov-
al, but King Humbert has expressed
himself as decidedly opposed to it, for
practical as well as traditional reasons.
Portland, Oregon. July 10.—At
Corvalles, Oregon, E. Rosenthal, a pros-
perous young Jewish merchant, recently
lost his wife. Ins father-in-law and
mother-in-law, named Kline, insisted
that he should marry his wife's younger
sister. This he refused, and they had
frequent quarrels. Sunday night
Mr. and Mrs. Kline went to his store,
where the quarrel was renewed, and
ended in the old folks cowhiding Rosen-
thal. Thereupon he wrote a note saying
they had driven him to death, and blew
out his braius with a revolver.

arose suddenly from her breakfast and
disappeared. A search instituted by her
parents aud neighbors found her tearing
through brush and weeds along throught
Crooked creek, one mile from home, per-
fectly wild. When approached she
fought like a tiger. A snake bite Is given
as the cause of her crazy freak, it being
just two years ago yesterday since she
was bitten by a large moccasin.
Judge Wallace and the Presldeat-
Washington, July 10. — "Business
took tne to New York some days ago,"
said Judge Wallace, of San Francisco,
to a reporter a few days ago.
* 'Wliile there I heard on every side the
highest praise of Collector Iieddeii, and
the warmest indorsement of the presi-
dent for making the appointment, it is
» mistake, the too prevalent idea that
only politicians should be placed in oflice.
It was characteristic of the president to
say the other day, when the effect
of the appointment on the cam-
paign in New York was canvassed ii# his
hearing, that the effect upon the cam-
paign was not the quostionvbut by whom
those offices could tie most faithfully and
efficiently administered. There is uo
doubt that the president is gaining a
strong hold upon the country. The peo-
ple. will eventually indorse his support of
the civil service reform laws. Indeed, if
there are not thoughtful, just and patriot-
ic people enough iu this country to rally
around and sustain the president, whose
sole object is so transparently to make
able and incorruptible men the servants
of the people, then I think we had better
Lisnow, July 10.—A mysterious epi-

The Memphis Postmaster.
Memphis, July 10.—The agony, so far
as the appointment of a postmaster for
Memphis is concerned, is over. Mr.
Jeptha N\ Fowlkes was the lucky indi-
vidual who won the prize. He was
recommended by Senator Harris, and it
is presumed the courtesy dife a Senator,
to allow them to name the 'postmaster
wheie their mail is received, left the
President powerless to appoint another.
Mr. Fowlkei is a prominent young busi-
ness mau, and uutil quite recently was a
member of the cottou and commission
Arm of W. B. Galbreath A Co. He was
indorsed for the position by the Cotton
and Merchants' Exchanges, and his ap-
pointment gives general satisfaction
to the merchants' community.
From a political standpoint it is hard
to guess why Senator Harris ignored the
claims of Col. J. M. Keating, of the Ap-
peal, and Capt. J. II. Mathes, of the
Ledger. Both these gentlemen were ap-
plicants, and their qualifications were
conceded to be equal to the fortuuate
gentleman who will handle the. mail at
this point for the next four years.
Deserved III Vale.
Charleston, S. C . July .10".—Charles
Williams appeared in Highland Home
some weeks ago and since then has caus-
ed the ladies of that county much fear.
He would meet them on the road and
flourish his pistol until they were thor-
oughly frightened, and then demaud a
lock of their hair and allow them to go.
A few nights ago he entered the house of
a lady aud deinauded the usual lock of
hair. The lady's brother answered with
screams. The ruffian ran, was after-
wards arrested and placed in cbargo of
two deputies and takeu to Lawrence*.
While the party was on their way, they
met masked men who riddled the priso-
ner with bnliets.
Sensational Pall Mall qaaette.
London July 10.—The Pall Mall Ga-
zette in one of its editions bid* defiance
to the authorities in their work of at-
tempting to suppress the sale of that pa-
pei. It claims honor for leading in the
cause of exposing the vice of the rich,
aud declares the best men of England
support it in its crusade. The Gazette
challenges the courts of London to pros-
ecute It for Us work, and nays it might
subpoena half the legislature of England
to prove the accuracy of its.revelations.
