Efforts to Have a Quiet and
FOE SPALDING'S TEAMS.
President Kimick Expresses His
Opinion on the Matter.
,' LANKON AND ASHTON MATCHED.
The Australian Teams Will Wind Up on
GENERAL SPOETIKG SEWS OP THE DAT
As the American ball players get nearer
home the talk of Riving them a "send-off"
at each city they visit in this country be
comes more general. A few weeks ago
Pittsburg papers made public the idea of
giving the boys a hearty reception when
they return. After the scheme had been
suggested New York and Philadelphia have
practically indorsed it. The players are
really to nave warm welcomes at the two places
named. It had also been intended to arrange a
"great welcome back" in this city, but a few
days ago Mr. J. "V. Spalding wrote Mr. A. G.
Pratt, ot this city, to the effect that President
Al Spalding did not desire public demonstra
tions in honor of the teams at the various Amer
ican cities to bo visited. This request seemed
to infer that by the time the teams reach New
York the time for gayety will have ceased.
There is considerable force in this, no doubt,
and Mr. Pratt is quite aware of it. Durins
yesterday and Monday, however, he has been
urged to try and promote
SOME KEfD OF A TTELCOME
that will at once be quiet and indicative of the
good and earnest wishes of Pittsburg patrons
of the national game regarding the players
who have represented America so well among
foreigners. President Nimick was spoken to
on the matter yesterday afternoon and dnring
the conversation he said:
"I believe with Manager Phillips, that when
the players again get foot on American soil
they will need much rest to get them into good
condition. Personally, I think the American
trip should be abandoned, not only in the in
terests of the players, but also of the patrons
or the League. Holding this opinion I cannot;
therefore, be expected to favor the idea of
banquets and demonstrative receptions."
"Will the Pittsburg club assist in promoting
any reception that may be agreed upon?" was
"Well, now 1 am not in a position to say what
we'll do. All that I say is that we believe re
ceptions will do the players no good."
Mr. Pratt and his friends are not by any
means disposed to act contrary to the wishes of
President Nimick and the local club, but it is
likely that a reception of a modest kind will be
arrancetfc A gentleman interested in the mat
ter yesterday mapped out the following pro
gramme, which will probably be accepted. He
A VEKT MODEST PROGRAMME.
"When the players arrive here we can have
carriages totmeet them at the depot, 'and
headed by a brass band, take them to their
hotel. At the latter place we can have a
modest and palatable repast provided for
them, which in no serfcecan do them any harm.
A few invited guests can be there, and the
Mayor and one or t o more prominent citizens
can make a few remarks ot welcome; replies
can be made by Bpaldlng, Anson, Ward and
others. The carriages will then convey the
players to the grounds, where a short prom
enade concert can be given before the game.
Now, there is nothing gay in this nor
expensive. Without any reception at
all the players would run round
a little, :.nd, if anything, tire and
weary themselves more than if, by
ineir presence, iney assisted to carry out ine
above programme. .We certainly must do
something, but I don't by any means want to
take part in anything that will have a tendency
to injure or interfere with the good condition
of the players."
The players, judging from indications, will
have a good, lively time in England. All the
leading sporting papers are taking considera
ble interest in the matter. The London Ref
eree, which, as a rule, is much opposed to any
thinglike hero-worship, sajs:
"According to a circular addressed to me by a
gentleman wLo, strangely enough, seeks to for
ward his proteges' interests and not advertise
himself, the American base bailers recently
starring in Australia lay much store on friendly
reception in England. Theycannot really
doubt being warmly welcomed in this country,
I should guess, for we always greet talent with
open arms, and more particularly when such
talent spreads itself in directions hitherto un
explolted within our gates. Men of Chicago,
also of all America which might be thought to
include Chicago, but illogically does not make
yourselves sure of a good time, and 'as
high a one as you care to have it.
You may be coming to introduce a new popu
lar craze vxich will perhaps cause one or
more of our fportlntr institutions to be shunted.
On this score I have my fears, because lawn
tennis has tauekt us that we have not room for
new pastimes except at the expense of stand
ards. But in sport or pastime, as In pretty
nearlv all thincs except Government offices,
the fittest will survive, because people will
have what they like best. So, supposing that
that we freeze on to baseball, and that sort of
freezing induces frost in other outdoor amuse
ments, all 'we can do is to thank you for intro
ducing something better suited to our wants
than we were able to elaborate for ourselves.
We have, however, yet to see whether base
ball suits us, you know." ,
WITHDRAWS HIS REQUESTS.

rSFXCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
NEW Yobk, February 28. Some time ago
A. G. Spalding wrote to all of the League clnb
Presidents, asking that the opening of the
League championship season be delayed for a
few days, until he could complete his trip.
J. W. Spalding found that this would be im
possible, and he wrote his brother to that ef
fect. A cablegram was received from Mr. Spalding
to-day, dated Florence, asking that the request
for a delay in openinc the championship season
be withdrawn, ft also stated that the exhibi
tion games wonld be finished on April 20, in
Chicago, just six months from the day they
were begun. The party expects to be in Lon
don on March 10.

Money for Kilrain.
Baltimore, February 26. Charlie Mitchell
writes Kilrain to go abroad at once, as he says
there is big money awaiting him. Six weeks,
Mitchell thinks, will enable Kilrain to add
$5,000 to his wealth, and at the same time en
able him to return in ample time forhis fight
with Sullivan. Kilrain lias the proposition

Cureainer arm, compelling her to retire. Woods
Sins Aewu are leading.
Shea's Backers Don't Satisfy Joe Ridge-or
Mr. J. Philan. of Wheeling, was in the city
yesterday trying to arrange a match for a fight
between Shea, of Wheeling, and either BIdge
or Hogan, of this city. A backer of Ridge
met Philan during the afternoon and stated
definitely that Ridge would fight Shea at 117
pounds, London prize ring rules, for S200 a
side, and if th6 referee could not determine
the winner at the end of 20 rounds,
the contestants to fight until he,
the referee, could decide. Ridge's
representative asked t2 expenses for
his man to ficht in Wheeling, and that the re
ceipt be divided between the principals. He
also stated that the smallest gloves that the
law will allow shall be -used. It was further
added that the Shea party would be al
lowed all the foregoing privileges asked if the
contest took place in Braddock.
In replv Mr. Philan stated that the only offer
he could make was to match Shea to fight
Ridge for S200 a side. Queensberry rules,
and that the receipts be divided as
follows: 40 per cent to the winner; 20 to
the loer and 40 to a certain party or club in
Wheeling who would manage the affairs.
These conditions ended all negotiations, as
neither the Ridge nor Hogan parties would
entertain them. Last evening Mr. Philan
made efforts to meet the Hogan party again,
but his conditions were deemed too onesided,
and nothing was done.
Ridge's representative offered to match his
man to fight Shea, who is 5 feet 8 Inches hish,
a catch weight on Saturday next, or to-day,
for 5300 a side. Ridge is onlv 5 feet 3 inches,
but the offer was not accepted.
ABOUT THE DUQCESNES.
Manager Swreenev makes a Pointed State
ment About Bis Club.
Manage J. J. Sweeney, of the Dnquesne
Ball Club, of the County League, called at this
office last evening and made the following
statement regarding reports about his club.
"Undoubtedly there are two or three cliques
using all possible means, of an ungenerous
kind, to ruin the Duquesnes. Why this shonld
be so I don't know,because we have done nobody
any harm. Despite the fact that we are a mem
ber of the league for this year and also that we
are ready to fulfill every obligation required,
it was published yesterday that we are on the
ragged edge,' and that we havo no financial
backing. Now tbts is not gentlemanly, inas
much as it will be time enough for anybody to
complain when we fail to comply with require
ments. The people who busy themselves in
circulating such reports are no friends of the
league or of baseball. What we pledge our
selves to do is to produce a good team when
the County League season opens and carry
that team through the season. Were the for
feit $100 instead of J25 we would still be in line,
and depend upon it we'll have our men ready
when the umpire calls play.' However, it
seems that those who are trying to wreck us
are the people who want to fill our place."
THE LOCAL MEN WON.
Hoggins and Rothn-etl Win the Interesting
Messrs. J. A. JIuggins. of this city, and J.
W. Rothwell, of Washington, Pa have de
feated Messrs. Richardson, of Boston, and
Jewell, ot Lawrence, Mass., in the big rifle
match. The final of the series of three con
tests was finished yesterday, and as a
resnlt the two first named won with consider
able to spare. The local men had given up all
hopes of victory, as previous to the commence-'
ment of the third contest they were 16 behind.
The last effort, however, changed matters con
siderably, as it placed Hnggins and Rothwell
winners of the match by 39 points.
Yesterdav's schooting was as follows: Roth
well, 416: Hnggins, 410. maklnc a total of 826.
Mr. Hoggins was very sick. The score of the
Eastern men were: Richardson, 397: Jewell,
374. The grand total for each contestant for
the three contests, 150 shots each, are: Hnggins,
1,251; Richardson, 1,242: RothwelL 1,211; Jewell,
1,185. It is likely the Eastern men will request
HE WANTS SHEEDr.
O'Connor Wants Sullivan's Old Manager to
Go to Australia.
Sau Fbaxcisco. February 26. Aquatic cir
cles, in a stir over the Gandaur-O'Connor mud
dle, were further stirred up to-day by a move
on O'Connor's part.
The Kanuck called upon Pat Sbeedy, John
L. Sullivan's old manager, and submitted a
proposition to go to Australia under Bheedy's
management. Sbeedy told him he could
not give him an answer until after he saw the
race with Gaudaur. If there was nothing
crookco in that affair he would consider the
Australian trip. He stipulated, however, that
should they go they share the money equally.
This met with O'Connor's assent.
O'Connor awaits the arrival of theZealandla,
expecting to learn from Ned Hanlan some ad
vice relative to Australia and its scullers.
It is hinted here that Joseph Rogers, the
Toronto druggist who is behind O'Connor, is
afraid to back his man against Searle.
MATCHED AT LAST.

18 Rounds for 81.000.

Providence, and Joe Lannon, of Boston, are to
have a go at last. The Criterion Club, of Provi
dence, has offered a purse of $1,000 tor them to
ficht 18 rounds in their rooms on March 19.
This fight will be by all odds the best that has
taken place in a long time. Both are good men
and there is bad blood between them. Sullivan
has always said that Lannon could fight if any
body wonld make bim do his best. Everybody
knows that Asliton is a good man, and those
who are behind the men say everything will be
on the square. Charley Johnston, of Brooklyn,
was asked to referee the fight, but he declined,
and Jim Wakely is now considering the propo
sition. He would be a good man for the posi
tion. Armalndo and Stanley Matched.

THE EEYENUE BILL AMENDED
Bo as to Exempt Iron, Steel, Cotton and Woolen
Makers From a 3-1I1U Tax
The Republican factions of this State are
drifting toward war. Chairman Andrews
evades the issue, but surface signs point to
the formation of a combination, which will
endeavor to wrest party control from those
now in power. The first move is hinted at
below. An amendment to the general reve
nue bill exempts iron and steel and cotton
and woolen goods manufacturers from the
mtOMA STAFF CORRESPONDENT.
Habbisbcbq, February 26. State
Chairman Andrews by this morning
had - read the interview, in. The
Dispatch in which he was represented as
offering to Senator Rutan, on behalf of Sen
ator Quay, but on conditions not prescribed
by that gentleman, the Republican nomina
tion for Stite Treasurerof the Common
wealth. He had nothing to say in reply,
and his form of response to a running fire of
questions was calculated to inspire belief
that in the Republican party a degree of
harmony existed that must indeed be grati
fying to the chiefs of the party. The State
Chairman smiled blandly on the corre
spondent as this information leaked out,
and was delightfully solicitious concerning
the latter's pulse, respiration and general
condition of health.
However, it is rumored that a combina
tion is slowly being formed that will make
a hard fight to wrest the control of the Re
publican party organization from its pres
ent possessors. Gentlemen who are alleged
to be concerned in the matter are discreetly
silent nd uncommunicative, but it is re
ported that a first move will include the
selection at the close of the present session
of Thomas Cochran for his old place as
Chief Clerk of the Senate. From thitt, if
successful, the new combination will go on
to greater things.
A partial confirmation of the rumors may
be seen in a remark made by Senator
Cooper to Senator "Watres during the de
bate in the Senate this afternoon on the
peace arbitration resolution, championed
especially by the Senator from Delaware.
The resolution requested our Representa
tives in Congress to take action on this mat
ter, and instructed the Senators to favor it.
Senator "Watres thought it wrong to do this
latter and said so, when Senator Cooper,
quickly rising and wearing a smile that
was not all a smile and a flushed counte
nance, remarked: "Occasionally it is a
luxury in Pennsylvania to instruct our
United States Senators." "When the yeas
and nays were called on the resolution Sen
ator Cooper was defeated by a vote of 16 to
18, though on a rising vote it had been car
ried by 16 to 15. Simpson.

The attorneys for the plaintiff stated that
they had not expected the case to close so
soon, and were not prepared on the spur of
the moment to begin their evidence in re

noon, when a large number of witnesses were

The irrepressible Irish question again oc
cupied the attention of the Souse of Com
mons yesterday. Healy demanded that the
Government take immediat steps to ar
rest Pigott Home Secretary Matthews
promised that it shouldbe done Sannderson
and Dillon then sharply debated the treat
ment accorded to political prisoners. The,
Parnell members interrupted frequently
with jubilant cheers.
London, February 26. In the House of
Commons this evening Mr. Healy asked
whether Home Secretary Matthews had or
dered tho arrest of Kichard Pigott and if
not, why he allowed Pigott to escape. Mr.
Matthews replied that a warrant had been
issued against Pigott. Mr. Healy then
asked whether the Government had taken
measures to prevent Pigott's escape by tele
graphing a warning to the police authorities
of the various seaport towns of the King
dom. Pigott, he said, was a valuable per
son. Had any attempt been made to cap
ture him? Mr. Matthews admitted that as
yet'he had taken no steps in the matter.
The knowledge of Pigott's disappearance
had reached him within tbe past hour. He
promisd that the Government would do their
utmost to capture the fugitive.
A CONSEBVATIVE PLEA.
Major Sannderson (Conservative) then re
sumed the debate on the address in reply to
the Queen's speech. Beferring to Mr.
Morley's remarks in the House last night,
he charged that gentleman with ignoring
the fact that crime in Ireland has lessened
since the enforcement of the crimes act.
The number of agrarian offenses was less
now than it had ever been since the agita
The Parnellites complained- that they
could freely make speeches in England for
which in Ireland they would be imprisoned.
Quite so. Men might smoke a cigar in
many places without offense, but to light it
down in a mine would be criminal, as the
act would endanper the lives of others.
Cheers. The freedom of speech which the
Parnellites wanted was not allowed because
they advocated law breaking, which led to
murder. Parliament had sometimes ac-"
ceded to'the claims of the Parnellites, but
the House had seen the unwisdom of it.
A cry was now got up to attract the peo
ple. Pamellite shouts of "Pigott! Pi
gott 1"1 Well, Pigott had amply qualified
himselt to be a member of tne first Home
Eule Ministry. That cry might for a mo
ment be substituted foranother "O'Brien's
clothes." Laughter. The Irish mem
bers ought not to make such dunces of
themselves bringing down everlasting ridi
cule upon their country. He could not
find a reason why Parnellites should not be
sent to jail, nor why, when once there, they
should ever be let out. Laughter.
Mr. Dillon thought Major Saunderson's
performance less amusing than usual. His
remarks were mere interludes in opera
bouffe stale jokes, unworthy of the atten
tion of the House. The question of Ireland
could not be set aside by jest. He em
phatically repudiated as a calumny any
suggestion that he or his colleagues worked
for the increase of crime. ' The decrease of
crime was not due to the coercion act, but
to enormons concessions got for the tenants
throutrh the nlan of campaign.
It was also due to the knowledge of the
increased sympathy of the English people.
The declarations of Mr. Gladstone and his
followers had more effect in stopping crime
than all the coercion acts ever passed.
Cheers. Begarding the question of prison
garb, they objected to wearing the livery of
crime and associating with forgers and
thieves. Shouts of "Hear, heart" Pos
sibly, judging from recent events, certain
members of the opposition did not entertain
the same objection. Parnellite cheers.
He proceeded to criticise Mr. Balfour's
statements regarding the treatment of pris
oners, contending that there were manifest
contradictions in the stutements making the
whole unworthy of credence.
A SHABP DEBATE.
Sir G..O. Trevelyan charged Mr. Balfour
with causing Parnellites to he arrested in a
place and manner calculated to inflict the
greatest possible outrage upon "public feel
ing and opinion. The Government, he de
clared, were responsible for the melancholy
incidents that attended the arrest of Father
McFadden, and they were especially blame
able for risking a repetition of such inci
dents by the arrest ot Father Stephens. The
speaker alio attacked Mr. Balfour on the
subject of the treatment of political' pris
oners. In the course of a speech in defense of the
Government Mr. Edward Stanhope, who is
a member of the Cabinet, asserted that wher
ever the plan of campaign existed tbe
amount of crime was greatest.
"There is not a word of truth in that," ex
claimed Mr. Dillon.
Cries of "Ob, oh," greeted Mr. Dillon's
remark, and Mr. Stanhope appealed to the
Speaker, whereupon Mr. Dillon challenged
him to prove his statement. In reply Mr.
Stanhope adduced statistics showing an im
provement in the condition of Ireland,
which he claimed was due to the Govern

AMEBIC! DID IT ALL.
Snlllvnn and Bean Furnished the AH-Im-portnnt
Evidence Carried to Par
nell by a Chicago Priest Al
most a Romance.
London, February 26. From a gentle
man high in the authority 'in the prosecu
tion of the Parnell- Times case to-day, came
the true story of how the conspiracy against
Parnell was detected. It constitutes one of
the most" romantic and extraordinary 'narra
tives in the history of politics. The evi
dence by which the conspiracy was exploded
was sent to London from a distant point in
the western portion of the United States,
and without this evidence complete in de
tail and invincible at every point, the
Times wonld undoubtedly have won, not
withstanding the spurionsness of the letters.
Up to July of last year Parnell, his
counsel and colleagues were wholly at sea.
They surmised, conjectured, investigated
clues and found each of them false. They
knew the letters were forged, but the for
geries were so adroit and the text of the let
ters, to say nothing of their penmanship,
was so like the habitual phraseology of
Egan and Parnell 'that it was clear the
crime had been committed by some one
having access to the correspondence of both.
But although the most astute detectives
and the most ingenious of English solici
tors were in the case, every effort to discover
the forger proved futile, and Parnell and
his eonndants were, if not hopeless, at least
depressed and disheartened.
AMERICA TO THE BESCUE.
One day last July a young Irish-American
priest, Bev. Maurice J. Dorney, of
Chicago, accompanied by Bev. Herbert,
Dunn, of the same city, sent his card into
Parnell at the House of Commons. "When
they met Father Dorney informed Parnell
that he had a package to deliver placed in
his hands the night before he sailed from
New York. It contained, he said, the evi
dence that would reveal the forgeries and
identify the forger of the letters printed in
the London Times.
The circumstances under which he came
to be the bearer were singular and almost
accidental. He received a telegram from
Alexander Sullivan, of Chicago, whose
came has figured prominently dnring the
trial, asking him to meet Patrick Fgan at a
railway station in New .York the night be
fore he was to sail for Liverpool. He did
so. Egan said he had come directly from
Chicago, where he had been in consultation
with Mr. Sullivan, when he had requested,
after they had gotten the documents and
their history in form, to select a trustworthy
man to carry them to Parnell.
Sullivan learned that Fathers Dorney
and Dunn were to take the steamer that
Saturday for Liverpool, and he selected
Father Dorney to bear the message. Mr.
Egan was met at the station by Father
Dorney, who was told the duty that had
been imposed upon him. They sat up all
HOKE THAN MILLIONS.
The priest learned the whole story and
was able to make it clear to Parnell. He
told Parnell he had carried that package
with more solicitude than if it had been
millions, for if it were lost all the gold
the Irish race could send to help him ia his
trial could not replace it. He expressed to
him the anxiety of Egan and Sullivan for
the safety of the package, and when its real
nature and inestimable value became ap
parent to Parnell, the home rule leader
was deeply affected.
The depression which had been visible on
his pale face for months began to soften,
and during the recital of the story he
yielded several times to emotion. "When
the story itself was over he asked .with pain
ful apprehension how many men in the
United States,knew what the package con
tained. Father Dorney replied that only
Egan, Sullivan and himself were familiar
with it, but that Patrick Ford would be
taken into confidence by Egan. Parnell
He inquired, fearing some one knew who
might indiscreetly tell the story to warn the
Times. He was solicitous for secrecv. But
he said the gentlemen named would" under
stand the need ot secrecy without a re
quest or a word of caution, and they were
all men whose names and services msnred
safety. A series of interviews followed,
participated in by Dorney, Parnell, Sir
Charles Kussell, Lewis and Laboucnere.
The discovery that Pigott was the forger
was made by Egan in Lincoln, Neb., while
detectives and experts were vainly trying to
find a clue in Great Britain. Egan writes
that he was sorely perplexed by the forged
letters, fac similes of which he got in the
London Times. The signature of those at
tributed to him was remarkably eood. Ex-
Sressions and odd abbreviations peculiar to
im were in the text.
He considered as the possible forger each
of several men whom the Parnellites sug
gested or suspected. But none of them
could have had letters from him which
would have made the spurious concoctions
possible. He recalled Bichard Pigott, but
he had been so long dead in politics and
covered with accumulated shame that Egan
dismissed him from his mind. He remem
bered that Pigott had been in forgeries
many years before. But the idea that he
might be concerned in these seemed absurd.
In scrutinizing the iorged fac similes he
finally discovered that one signed with his
own name was written avowedly nt a certain
address in Paris, and the recollection flashed
upon him that Pigott was the only man to
whom he had given it. Pigott had written
him asking for a confidential address to
which he might send important communi
cations. THE IMPOBTANT KEY.
This address proved the key to tbe forg
eries. Egan, who is methodical in habits,
had saved his correspondence for years. In
stead of keeping a letter press he has been
accustomed to writing on the fly leaf of a
letter recording his answer to it, and then
copying the answer to be sent to his cor
respondent. Thus he had letter and answer
together. He searched his volumes of let
ters until he found Pigott's. By comparing
them with the handwriting on the forged
letters he saw that he had the iorgcr.
He submitted letters written by Pigott to
experts, together with the fac similes of tbe
forged letters. They immediately detected
characteristic peculiarities, which were con
firmed under the microscope. Egan had
Pigott's letters and the forgeries photo
graphed, and started for Chicago,where he
placed ait tne papers ueiore nis inena,
Alexander Sullivan, who is also a solicitor.
The brief was drawn up by him and Sulli
van in tbe latter's office in Chicago.
It related the chief incidents in Pigott's
career, and. showed that he had been a
forger belore. Years before, when Piggott
tried to sell the Irishman, a newspaper, to
Parnell and Egan, he furnished an in
ventory apparently authenticated by well
known Dublin accountants showing the
value of tbe property of the concern. Egan
proved that the inventory was false, and
Pigott had forged the accountants' signa
tures to it.
HE IDEOED BEFOBE. .
Pigott was caught in another similar
transaction. In the office of Pigott's news
paper was a man who contributed to the
Boston Pilot. His nom de plume was Leo.
After his death a relative discovered that
Patrick Donahue, then editor of the Pilot,
had remitted to Leo a draft which his fam
ily never received, and that Pigott had
opened the letter, taken the draft intended
for Leo, forged his indorsement, and drawn
the money. Pigott was compelled to dis
gorge. These facts Egan committed in writing.
He had meanwhile ascertained tbe process
by which Pigott made the spurious letters.
He found among his papers some letters
written by him fn which entire sentences
Psoriasis 5 years, covering face, head, and
entire body wlih whits scabs. Skin red,
ifchy,ssnd bleeding. Hair sll gone. Spent
hundreds of dollars. Pronounced Incur
able. Cured by Cuticurs Remedies.
My disease (psoriasis) first broke out on my
left cheek, spreading across my nose, and al
most covering my face. It ran into my eyes,
and the physician was afraid I wonld lose my
eyesight altogether. It spread all over my
head, and my hair all fell out, until I was en
tirely bald-headed: it then broke out on my
armand shoulders, until my arms were just
one sore. It covered my entire body, my face,
head, and shoulders being tbe worst. Ther
white scabs fell constantly from my head,
shoulders, and arms; tbe skin would thicken
and be red and very itchy, and would crack
and bleed if scratched. After spending hun
dreds of dollars, I was pronounced incurable.
I heard of the Cctictjea Remedies, and
after using two bottles Cuticuba Besolvent,
I could see a change; and after I had taken fonr
bottles, I was almost cured; and when J had
used six bottles of CtmctTBA Bisolvent
and one box of Cuticuba, and one. cake of
Cuticuba Soap, I was enred'of the dreadful
disease from which I had suffered for fire
years. I thought the disease would leave a
very deep scar, but the Cuticuba Remedies,
cured it without any scars. I cannot express
with a pen what I suffered before using tbe
Cctictjka Remedies. They saved my life,
ana I feel it my duty to recommend them.
My hair is restored as good as ever, and so i3
my eyesight. I know of a number of different
persons who have used tbe Cuticuba Reme

their use. MBS. ROSA KELLY.

Pigott had traced these sentences carefully
word for word. Then he interpolated or
added other sentences or phrases completely
changing the meaning of the whole letter
while preserving the integrity of portions.
Dates were also changed to make the
criminal interpolations applicable to illegal
events. Egan also found letters by Parnell
which had been similarly used. Photo
graphs of all these and ot Pigott's becrsrinp
and blackmailing letters were inclosed with,
tbe originals in the package with tbe mem
oranda, recalling to Parnell all the circum
stances attending the writing or reception of
This was the precious piece of luggage
the young clergyman fetched to Parnell.
Until it came the Times' case was as invul
nerable as fraudulent. No hint of the con
tents of the package ever became public un
til Parnell himselt, in an interview he had
with Pigott in the presence of Labonchere
and Lewis, asked Pigott certain questions
wnicn disclosed to tne culprit that evidence
was secured convicting him ot the crime.
Pigott either reported his fears to the
Times or was watched by its detectives and
traced into ParneU's presence. Then he
had to partially confess to his employers;
nnd the Attorney General and his col
leagues then compelled LeCaron to'testify,
and be as malignant as possible, swearing
that Parnell declared to LeCaron that be
favored armed revolution and that Alex
ander Sullivan got him (LeCaron) into a
secret revolutionary organization. This
was for the purpose of breaking the force of
ParneU's information about Pigott's ante
cedents. But Pigott had no suspicion of the over
whelming completeness ot the knowledge
conveyed in the package to Parnell, and
did not realize until he got into Sir
Charles' clutches that no calumny could im
pair the fatal effect upon him and on the
Times' case of what Parnell knew. Had
Egan not made the discovery, the truth of
the letters could have been only denied, but
their falsehood could not have been demon
strated. The situation would have been a
Times victory, and victory of the Times
wonld be tbe ruin of Parnell, the Home

Gcorso Aonnstns Sala Relates How Pigott
Told Bis Story.
Londcw, February 27. Mr. George Au
gustus Sala writes to the Telegraph an ar
ticle a column and a hall long describing the
interview on Saturday between Pigott and
Mr. Labonchere. It is written in the usual
gossippy style of Mr Sala and confirms the
statement that Pigott went to M. Labou
chere's house voluntarily to make a confes
sion, but that, apparently owing to the
gnawing of his conscience, he had great dif
ficulty in owning up, and took a lull ten
minutes to make up his mind. .
He then began, in a musing tone, a
soliloquy, but by degrees his voice rose, and
he became as fluent that it was rarely neces
sary for him to hall or reconstruct a phrase.
The copy of the confession which Mr. Lewis
obtained was from the beginning to the end
literally and verbally the composition of
Pigotty who confessed that he forged the
Parnell letters, and minutely described the
manner in which they were written. Pigott
said that ho alone executed the forgeries.
Mr. Sala continnes:
Whether he is telling the truth or another
batch of lies is not for me to determine, bnt to
my mind he seemed to be confessing facts, and
nothing but facts. Io pressure was
pnt upon bim and no leading ques
tions were asked. He went on quietly and
continuously to the end of bis story. I should
have thought it amazing had I not had occa
sion to hear many more -astounding tales.
Pigott did not apuear to be overcome by shame
'and treated his actions more as incldPntal
weaknesses. Both myself and Mr. Labonchere,
