LONDON, May was a notable gathering of free traders at the Cotxlen club yesterday, the occasion being the presentation of an address to Mr Thomas Bayley Potter, Gladstonian member for Rochdale. Mr. Potter for several years occupied the position of honorable treas- urer of the club and recognized as one of the highest authorities on tariff matters iu England. The address was presented by Mr. Glad- stone who, in the course of his speech, re ferred to the anti-Chinese legislation iu the United States. Owing to the nmbig- nity of the legislation on the Chinese ques- tion, he said, he was not altogether clear whether the American government taxed Chinese who entered or barred them all ont. Any way, he thought that tbe general unrest prevailing throughout the country. The prices of all commodities, said, bad fallen and continued to fan. greasive fall iu the general range of prices had always exercised baneful an influ- ence on the prosperity of mankind that it never failed to excite attention.

The motive of demonetization tn the cose of .cold, as well us silver, was to aggrandize ihe creditor class of the world and to con- fiscate, so far as possible, the rewards of the hardy toilers.

Waylaid and Murdered. s FALLS, N. Y., May lit.-Lean.der Pasco, a prominent citizen of Thurman, ttarren county, was waylaid and mur- dered Saturday evening. The news of the murder reached here Sunday evening and District Attorney Patterson and Coroner Streeter drove to the scene of the tragedy Several witnesses were examined during ere examined during the inquest riddled with The dead buckshot. bar armies had inflicted on France; aud i when this evil began to have its effect, a evening at veritable begira of the German population 1 man hack wan began to take place.

No better remedy could be applied than the abso- lute reversal of that legislation, and put- ting back tlie monetary system of the country to what it was before 18T3. If the mouometallists would compare gold and silver with commodities in gen- eral they would see how the metals had maintained their relations, not to each him. The murderer took up n position one side of the roatl and as Pusco passed, shot him down. Footprints show where the muiderer concealed himself.

In an Interview subsequently, Mr. Potter declared it to be his conviction that the tariff question would again be the Issue in the presidential campaign in America in 1893, when the free traders tariff reformer." would, in all probability, be successful. STANLEY IN A BAD LIGHT. Mr. Henry M. Stanley is giving way to an exhibition of ill temper which discloses in his character an element of egotism which threatens to increase the number of his enemies if allowed to remain uncurbed, -lust now he is complaining of the cow- ardice of tlie public men and the press of Kuglaud in not taking an aggressive posi- tion against Germany in Africa at his hest and is inclined to belittle the intellec- tual finalities of those who do not agree with him in the mutter of England's im- mediate domination of the lake and other desirable portions of the interior. He ad- mits, however, that there is plenty of room in Africa for both Germany and England, but thinks that an English rail- road should be constructed lit once to con- nect tbe lakes aud place that region be- yond the possibility of occupation by other powers. Such a railway, he asserts, would open the interior to trade, the value of which can scarcely be esti- mntpd. Tie expresses admiration for Mai. WiHSiriann, but is disinclined to speak of Emm or of his new expedition. Through- out the inlerxiew In whii h Mr Stanley expressed luinsell' ns above he refened to himself as an Englishman. MBS.

Y., May la.-A IS-yesr- old boy named McDonald shot, aud killed hih 4-year-old coiutm at Lunerue on Sun- day. The circumstances lemliug to the tragedy are peculiar. William McDonald died m an Insane asylum some time ago leaving a widow and two children. His brother then left bis own wife aud resided with the widow, taking uiH 12-year-old son with him. The house was so arranged that another family who lived in it had to pass through the McDonald apartments in order to reach their own sleeping in the second story. Recently the two families quarreled, and McDonald com- pelled his neighbors to use a ladder in reaching tlieir rooms. On Sunday Mc- Donald went away from home, telling his son to shoot the neighbors if they tried to get into his part of the house.

Discussing the bill pending before the senate, Mr. Jones declared himself at all times and in all places a firm and un- wavering advocate of the free and unlimited coinage of silver. In view, however, of the great diversity of oplBlon on the subject and the possibility that by reason of such diver- sity tbe session of congress might termin- ate without affording the country any re- lief from the baneful and benumbing ef- fects of tbe demonetization of silver, he had joined with other members of the committee in reporting the bill. Krt iirning to his argument, Mr. Jones .said that In order that prices might be kept from falling, the number of dollars out should not be reduced in number for the purchasing power of each dollar de- pend on the whole number out. At tbe suggestion of Mr. Teller, Mr. postponed further remarks until to- day. The senate then went into executive session and a few moments later adjourned. IN THB HOUSE.
