Mr. Parnell concluded his testimony be
fore the Commission yesterday. He stated
that he had no desire to conceal any letter
that he had ever written or received. Arch
bishop "Walsh then took the stand. His
testimony was objected to by Attorney Gen
eral Webster. Parnell's counsel asserted
that similar testimony on the other side had
been heard. The Court decided against re
ceiving the testimony.
Loxdox, May 8. Mr. Parnell's examin
ation was finished before the special com
mission to-day. He testified that the recep
tion committee in America comprised lead
ing merchants of New York, representative
citizens and ministers of religion. In his
speeches in New York witness had declared
that not a farthing contributed to the Irish
cause would go toward organizing rebellion
Thronghont his tour of the United States
he had never swerved a hand's breadth from
that declaration. Attorney General Web
ster, the witness said, had quoted from five
out of sixty speeches he had made in the
United States, ignoring the general tenor of
his speeches so as to misrepresent his words.
All the names the Attorney General had
mentioned as those of persons who were as
sociated with the meetings were only a
mall fraction of those who had attended.
Men of prominent position and of un
doubted respectability attended those meet
ings. In no sense could the American re
ceptions be identified with the proceedings
of the physical force party.
Witness nrmly believed that none of nis
colleagues, since joining the Irish Parlia
mentary party, had had anything to do with
the Fenians. Only casually did the Fenians
come within the orbit of the constitutional
movement. Here Mr. Parnell scored by re
marking that the Tories were more certainly
associated with the movement, for instance
when they co-operated with the Farnellites
to obstruct the criminal code bill to the
Referring to some letters of bis, Mr. Par
sell said he had copies made from his Sec
retary'! shorthand notes. At this point
Attorney General Webster said:
"It seems that there exists a book of copies
of Mr. Parnell's letters. I would like to
see that book."
Sir Charles Russell By all means.
presiding Justice Hannen If these let
ters refer to the League they ought to have
Mr. Parnell Your Lordships are wel
come to see any letter I ever wrote or re
ceived. Attorney General Webster, recurring to
the examination of Mr. Parnell's private
r bank account, wanted to trace a number of
' checks, and a warm discussion ensued, Sir
Charles Hussell declaring that such action
would be unfair. Justice Hannen sug
gested a postponement of the inquiry into
this matter until further documents were
before the Court
Archbishop Walsh here took the stand.
So-testified that he came to the conclusion
before 1879 that there was need of a de
fensive land organization, and was proceed
ing to give his opinion of the necessity for
such an organization, when Justice Hannen
interposed, saying the inquiry must be lim
ited to whether or not the Land League was
necessary. Attorney General Webster sub
mitted that matters of opinion were sot ad
missible. TTJB1T ABOUT FATE PLAT.
Mr. Biirger urged that opinion evidence
had been given over and over again by
"hirelings of the Government" Justice
Hannen warned Mr. Bigger that he must
sot make use of such expressions. Mr.
Bigger then said that unless such evidence
was admitted the whole inquiry would end
in a farce.
The jndges here retired to consider the
matter privately. On their return Justice
Hannen announced that they had decided
that it was not permissible to ask any wit
ness, however distinguished, abstract quest
ions of opinions. The facts known to the
witness ought to be laid before the Court
before opinions based thereon were men
tioned. The mere expression of Archbishop
Walsh's opinion, the Justice said, was in
admissible. The Archbishop, continuing, said that in
the course oi his visits through his diocese
he had abundant means of knowing that the
League denounced outrages. Many priests
had joined the League with his full ap
proval. He saw nothing in the action of the
members of the League to forbid the clergy
joining the organization.
AMEBICAKS AB HOSTS.
Th Samoan Representatives Give a Dinner
at the German Capital.
Beblin, May 8. The American dele
gates to the Samoan conference gave a din
ner at the Kaiserhof this evening. The
guests and their hosts were arranged as fol
lows; Mr. Kasson sat at the middle of the
table, having on his right Count Herbert
Bismarck, and Messrs. Coleman, Beauclerk
and iGemsch, and on his left Sir E. B.
Malet, Lieutenant Buckingham, Dr.
Arendt and Lieutenant Parker. Opposite
Mr. Kasson sat Mr. William Walter Phelps,
who had on his right Mr. Scott, Mr. Bates,
Herr Bicthofen and Mr. Sewall, and on his
left Dr. Kranel, Mr. Crowe, Dr. Stemrich
and Mr. Crosby.
Dr. Stemrich succeeds Dr. Arendt as Ger
man Secretary to the conference.
AT THE EXPOSITION.
It Is Not Tet Entirely Heady, and the At
tendance Is Not Large.
Pabis, May 8. The attendance at the
Exposition thus far has not been tip to ex
pectations, and the majority of those present
teemed to be strangers.
This indicates merely that the Parisians
have sense enongh to realize that they hare
all summer in which to see the show, and
that there is no cood reason for hurrying be
fore it is ready.
It is certainly nowhere near ready yet.
The best department at present is that of
fine arts, the representation of most of the
European countries being, quite in shape.
The American Art Section, which is sit
uated upstairs, is, however, barred to the
public, and will not be opened before Satur
day. A Conflict With Striken.

X Railway Sagine Dashes Into a Panes
ffer Street Car Its Occupant! Scat
tered In Every Direction Tho
Gateraaa Wei Not on Doty.
Kalamazoo, Mich., May 8. A shock
ing accident occurred about 6:30 o'clock this
evening at the West Main street crossing of
the Michigan Central Railroad. A street
car, containing seven ladies and two men,
was crossing the track when a switch engine
dashed down upon it at a high rate of speed,
and the driver, being unable to get the car
out of the way, the helpless passengers were
hurled to a terrible death. It was but the
work of a moment and the fearful catas
trophe was over.
The street car. was carried almost to
Academy street, the pieces flying in all
directions, and the human freight being
mangled in a frightful manner. Those in
the car were: Mrs. Alexander Haddock,
Mrs. M. P. Wattles, Mits Gertrude Tillot
son, Mrs. George Smiley, Mrs. Middleton,
Mrs. Van Antwerp, Mrs. S. A. Gibson,
Mrs. Jonathan Barnes, Mr. L. C. Lull, Dr.
The first six were killed, two being found
'dead in the cattle guard, one in the creek
near by, two on the track and Mrs. Middle
ton died an hour later. She was thrown in
the roadway. Mrs. Gibson was injured in
the head and side and Mrs. Barnes was
bruised badly. The male passengers both
escaped. The driver of the car escaped by
jumping. The switch engine was running
at a high rate of speed. The gates at the
crossing where the accident occurred are
not used between 5:30 and 6.58 p. M., the
gatekeeper going home at that time. This
custom probably deceived the driver of the
street car, who was a new man and probably
supposed that the gates wonld of course be
down if an engine were coming.
A KEW BLAST FUBNACE
To Be Bnllt by Carncglo Bros. 8s Co', at
Braddock, to Cost 8330,000.
Carnegie Bros. & Co. have everything in
readiness to commence work on the new
blast furnace H. It is to be built next to
furnace G, making the plant a line of blast
furnaces nearly, if not altogether, a quarter
of a mile long, with the Whitewell stoves
and all the appliances.
In the last three years three new blast
furnaces have been added to this plant,
which is the finest and one of the largest in
the world, each casting 250 tons daily. The
new furnace is to be a similar one, and will
cost over $250,000, and it will take about
one year to build it In its construction it
will require nearly 1,500,000 of fire-brick.
The company has now nine blast fur
naces, including the two Lucy lurnaces in
Pittsburg, from which they can cast 1,800
tons a day, but the consumption of metal at
their four immense plants is running up to
almost 2,000 a day.
A Farewell to a Faithful Pastor.
Last evening a large audience gathered iu
the First Christian Church, Allegheny, the
occasion being a farewell sociable given by
the ladies to their pastor. Rev. William P.
Cowden, who departs next week for Wash
ington Territory, where he expects to travel
as General Superintendent of Missions of
that Territory and the adjoining States.
Prof. O. H. Phillips, in a few choice words,
tendered to Rev. Mr. Cowden a well filled
purs; as a generous contribution from his
iriends in the church. He will preach his
last sermon as pastor on Sunday evening.

street and North avenue, Allegheny, the
price paid being 80,000 cash. Mr. Boggs
objected to the erection of the poles along
the line of tne irieasant valley road on
huicu electric wires-win ue girung, ana ta
order to save trouble, the company agreed to
purchase his property. Mr. Boggs is well
satisfied with the price paid.

Tonne Blood Wins Every Time.
Five years ago we stepped into the ring
with three of the greatest battle guns known
to the commercial world. Low prices, solid
values and enterprise were our bulwark
while we battled year by year, determined
to knock out old fogy methods and old war
prices until from the little midget, which
we then were, we have become the giant of
to-day. We've been wonderfully successful.
Our bright, new and honest ways of doing
business seem to take the public's fancy,
and look through the newspapers any dav
you will, you'll see our methods copied and
our advertisements stolen bodily. When
other concerns are doing apparentlynothing,
call at the P. C. O. C. and you'll see a crowd
of busy, satisfied buyers, having their wants
supplied by gentlemanly salesmen. Just
now we are selling as a leader men's fine
suits at 510 (and we'll stake 51,000 that
these suits can't be produced elsewhere un
der $18). They are made from costly
cheviots, Bannockburns, corkscrews,
worsteds, tweeds and cassi meres, and lined
