LOXDOS, Nov. meeting of the Irish home rule members of parliament was held j-esterday before the opening of the session of the house of commons. Mr. Parnell w.is present. He was loudly cheered as he entered the room. A motion was made that Mr. Parnell be re-elected chairman of the Irish parliamentary party. It was carried unanimously. It is announced that Mr. Parnell will retain the leadership at the express desire of his followers. Mr. Parnell made an address, in which he thanked his followers for his re-elec- tion. He said it was for the Irish mem- bers to decide whether he should lead them. If their decision had been a nega- tive one, or there had been any diversity of opinion among them, he would cheer- fully have withdrawn from public life.

Where it is shown that the soldier served over ninety days and v.-as honorably dis- charged, re-enlists in the same cr other organization, and was dishonorably dis- charged, or deserted therefrom, would he have status to apply for a pension under of June 27, In answer Gen. Bussey discusses very fully the intent and scope of the act of June 27, 1690, and in conclusion says: "It is clear that the least period of pen- sionable service under the act of June 27, 1890, must embrace ninety days, and that the claimant must prove an honorable discharge from the minimum service of ninety days and, yet it appears that he re-enlisted in the same or other organiza- tion and was dishonorably discharged or deserted therefrom, would he have status to apply for a pension under the act of June 27, 1890? "The answer to this portioa of your in- quiry is a simple one. It is evident that if the soldier, after receiving an honorable discharge from the original service of in their common cause induced him to re- j ninety "days had never re-enlisted, he -would occupy a pensionable status; he might become a dependent pensioner 1890, by Ll8 Uh sume a position which, under his altered circumstances, exposed him and them, through him, to the attacks of their op- ponents. _______________ 111 Belle VPS Her Husband Innocent.

There were nearly persons present, 600 or 700 of whom paid 610 admission. The receipts did not much more tlvin cover the expenses which were unusu-illy heavy. The ptnve for the fighters alone was originally was added to this for two additional training after the the postponement The spectators saw tte thiiuc through with very little noise. Pome of the hood lums broke lose now and then, however, and had to be called to order. Smith was plainly the man the crowd wanted to see win, but the careful betters put their money on Godfrey. Most of the bets were made at even money before the fight be- gan. E. H. Garrison, the jockey and horse owner, was perhap? the largest bet- tor in the hall. He put out ?130 on Godfrey. When the men appeared at which hour the house was locked up, Godfrey showed perfect form, while Smith was fat on the sides and looked as though his training had been rather easy. He was seconded by Wrestler William Muldoon, Jack Ashton and Jake Kilrain, and poorer handling of a fighter has rarely been had. As a matter of fact blood that he got on his right upper arm in the fourteenth round was allowed to remain there until the end of the contest. Godfrey's Mahony and Frank Steele of on their man as though they meant business and to their handling Godfrey owes no small part of his success. Jere Dunn was the referee and was cheered when he introduced himself. The gloves, which were said to be fully five ounces in weight, were weighed in the presence of the chief of police, but the hair in them was well w oriced from the knuckles before they were put on. Smith stood over an inch above Godfrey an1 looked to weigh ten pounds more, but the official weights were, Smith 180, Godfrey 178. Godfrey's flesh, it is true, was like iron, but few people believed there was only that difference between the men. For three rounds there was some very lively fighting. Smith went in at once to knock bis man out, but the colored man had little trouble in avoiding his blows. Twenty-two rounds were foug'at, boi men giving and receiving terrible punish--. ment. In the twenty-third round Referee Dunn seeing that Smith was but a chopping block, though a tough one for the col- ored man, ordered the men to their cor- ners and gave the decision in favor of Godfrey. Professor Mnldoon afterward offered to match Jake Kilrain against Godfrey, and a contest between these men will probably take place before long. Tim Kicliiuund lletail of Incorporation.

The Black River canal is an important feature of the Erie system, but is in need of extensive repairs to the which are largely composed of timbers row in a state of decay. The work to be done, upon the, Cbamplain canal will include making tbe canal, as far as tbe appropri- ation will allow, uniformly six feet in depsh and of sufficient width for the easy parsing of boats. On the eastern division of i he Erie canal there are three great aqueducts, the timber trunks of which are in such bad repair as to demand a re- construction, and the cr-oromical plan will be to build enl rely new timber trunks. Much of the oli timber will be of great value for docking and other caml repairs. _____ ......_______ The Notorious Eva Hamilton Her Liberty. TRENTON, N. J., Nor.

The petition being made before death of her husband, it gave reasons that are now obsolete, mainly that her con- finement in the prison was jeopardizing her interests, inasmuch as her husband had charged her with fraud and was seek- ing an annulment of their marriage. Tbe application also stated that nurse Don- nelly, who was assaulted, speedily recoY- ered and was able to give her testimony in court and afterwards go on exhibition in a dime museum.
