NEWS FROM THE OTHER SIDE A Day of Excitement in Dublin Over the O'Brien-Dillon Trial. OTHER PROMINENT MEN I ARRESTED CURRENT COMMENT. Duitiso the coming two or three weeks the mountains will begin to display the matchless colors of the fall season. Speaker Reed maybe a "Czar," but whenever tho people get a chance o ox-press their confidence in him they do so unmistakably. Ex-President Cleveland indignantly denies tho storios about his HI health and it is evident that he is still able to carry on his own campaign. Remeaiuek the Fourth-not the Fourth ot July-bat the Fourth of October, for unless your poll tax is paid ou or before that day you cannot vote at the November election. Now that.the Republicans in the House have "got together" iu sufficiect numbers to form a quorum, they Bhould keep their number unbroken in ease of another outbreak of Democratic mulishuoss before the end of the session. Negro voters in the Northern States will not forget tho determined, courageous and sucaessful effott made by the Republican majority in the House to give two Represeutatives of their race the scats in Congress to which they were rightfully elected. Attention is called by a contemporary t,j the fact that the New York Central train wreckers begaa by buying a quart of whisky, and waited for the direful culmination in dram shop?, cureless of the dreadful consequence of their wiokedoess. It is the latest and perhaps the worst of the many proofs to what depths human depravity oan go. The Republicans of the 27ih District did a creditable act iu nominating Charles W. Stone for Congress. Mr. Stouo who is at present Secretary of State at narriBburg* is a man of character and the possessor of a well-trained mind, and has been honorably distinguished in tho public service for many yearB. His district is largoly Republican, and his appearance in Congress will be a distinct gain to the influence and reputation of the delegation from this State. Everybody should attend tho Delamater miss meeting in tho CourtUouse next Wednesday night and hear the issues of the cam" paign discussed from a Republican standpoint by the Republican candidates themselves. This will be tho only opportunity offered by our people to see and hear the Republican candidates during tho proseut campaign and the Court House should be crowded on this occasion.

Tat rick O'Brien's Friend* Tarn Out In Force and Follow III in to the Court Hoiifle-They Arc Set irpon l>y tho Police and Clulibed, n Number Heine *Juite Itudly Injured. Dublin, Sept. 25.-Patrick O'Brien, who was arrested at Cardiff ou Tuesday, was brought to this city yesterday and placed in prison. The police refused to give any information as to when ho would bo taken to Tipporary for a hearing. But late last night the Nationalists learned that he would be conveyodjjthither by tho morning traiu to-day, when they at once made preparatious to give him a worthy escort. Much to the surprise of the authorities a largo delegation of promiuent Nationalists boarded the traiu at tho Bamo time that the officers appeared with O'Brien. Among these wore John B. Morley, who has been in Ireland for some time studying the Irish question; John Dillon, Alfred Illingwortb. member of Parliament for Bradford; T. M. Healy, Commoner Hor-riDgton and others. On the arrival of tho train at Tipperary the Nationalists started J for the Court Ilouso in a body. EXCITEMENT AT  TllTEIU-RY. As this was tho day Used for tho trial of ! the arrest of the Nationalists the streets of ! TippBrary were full to overflowing with people interested in the case.   National- | ists had thronged to the towu from all adjacent parts, many of them carrying the national weapon, the shillelagh, and prepared to use it if provocation would arise. Early in the day it becamo known that still another arrest had been made. The victim this time was Thomas J. Cendom, member of Parliament for Tipperary East. He was taken this morning at Limerick and also brought to Tipperary. When the hour for the silting of the court arrived an immense crowd had collected before the Court House, ready to run iu tho moment the doors were thrown open. The authorities thereupon decided not to open tho doors to tho general public, but admit only those who were immediately interested in tho trial. club11ed i:V THE POLICE.) Tho crowd did not take kindly to this treatment, bat pressed forward trying Id force a way into the Court House. The police stoutly resisted, charging repeatedly upon the crowd, aod using theirclubs freely upon who ever happened to be within reach. Many of their blows took effect. But the crowd did not yield instantly. For fully five minutes there was a stand up fight between the now excited throng and tho police. At last, however, the crowd was gradually forced back, and the police succeeded iu mantaining a clear space in front of the Court House. The lcadors of tho crowd continued to make vigorous protest against being excluded from the Court House, and the police were subjected to jeers and tauuts from the angry and wounded victims of their recent onslaught. A NUMBER WOUNDEl*. Duriug tho conflict soveral persons woro wounded with blows from the policemen's bludgeons. One of the moBt serious cases was that of a man, some of whose teeth were knocked out and forced into his throat. Soveral men wero so badly butt as to require surgical attendance. Among the wouuded were Timothy Harrington, member of Parliament for Dublin, and a Mr. Halifax. Both received heavy blows on tho head, which bled profusely. They made their w^y into the court room as soon as they could. But by that time their hair aud coat collars were saturated with blood, and they presented a pitiable spectacle. Their appearauce in Courtcroated a pro-fouud sensation, aud kept additional emphasis to tho complaint which Mr. William O'Brien was making to tho Court of the brutality of tho police. O'BRIEN IN COURT. At first Mr. O'Brien had refused to enter tho Courl-j room unless the public should bo freely admitted. Ho maintained this attitude for some timo, but at last decided that he could accomplish more by appealing to the Court, entered ' be room aud bitterly denounced the wautou clubbiug of tho crowd, of which ho had been a witnoHS, It was whilo he was speaking that tho sensational entrance of Messrs. Harrington and Halifax occurred. Then John Morely arose and addressed tho Court, lie earnestly appealed to the Court to jToloct the populace a<;.uii3t i'-io wanton us'j of the club by the police. Meanwhile Ih'j Nationali�t loaders continued to prates* against 'ii-i exoluaiwu o( the general public from tho Court room. Both Mr, Morley and Mr. Dillon up. peilel to Colonel Caddel, the presiding Magistrate, to reverse his docison to keep the doors shut against the public.   For some time he refused to recede from his determination. Messrs Morley and Dillon, however, continued to labor with him, aud at last he yielded the point and ordered the doors thrown open. Tho room was at once filled to its utmost capacity and all tho proceeding wore followed with iulense interest. objections raised. At the outset Mr. Dillon object to being tried before Resident Magistrate Shannon. Tho grounds of his objeotion were that he had had a personal encounter with Shannon on one occasion atCashel. At that time, he asserted, Shannon had grossly insulted him. Ho urged, therefore, that there would be manifest impropriety in Shannon's sitting at tho present trial. Mr. Shannon refused to admit the validity of Mr. Dillon's objeotious. He knew no reason why ho should not go on with tho case. He doolarod that ho would perform his duty without bias. William O'Brien also objected to Shannon. Tho last time he saw Shannon, he said Shannon was at the head of a body of police who were using their olubs upon the people. Moreover, Shannon had already tried him three times on similar charges. His sitting iu tho present oase, O'Brien said, was an indecency and an insult. The Magistrate answered O'Brien's objections in the same way that, be had disposed of Dillon's. Items From TJp River. From ihe Reuovo Record. A number of veins of good fire-clay havo been recently discovered on tho mountains in the vicinity of Wostport. It is probable that a company will shortly bo organized to start- tho manufacture of five brick at this place. The report, extensively circulated last week, that Captain Bossort, postmaster at Westport, had a stroke of paralysis, is without foundation. The Captain is at his post of duty every day. He had a slight attack of rheumatism in hiB right shoulder last week, which probably gavo rise to the rumor stated. Mr. Richard Riddles informs the writer that a three-foot vein of bitumen ooal and a five-foot vein of good hard fire-clay had recently been discovered on John Green's mountain lands, three miles north of North Bend station. Several barrels of the clay have been shipped to Eastern parties for examination, and if the quality of tho clay proves to be good, he thinks a company will shortly bo organized for the purpose of mining and shipping it. Coming Tuesday Night. The "Fat Men's Club," a funny skit, full of music, and nonseDBe and unmistakably entertaining, with tho great, big fat comedian J. C. Stewart in the load will be tho attraction at tho Opera House Tuesday evening, September 30th. The Grand Rapids Democrat says: There was a superabundance of adipose tissue on the stage of the Neff Opera House last evening and the misadventures of one fat man in particular furnished plenty of fun for the audience, which comfortably filled the house. Mr. Stewait, who appeared in the principal role, is a capital comedian; Miss Sylvia's artistic danoing and the acrobatic feats of the DeBolieos were among the beBt of specialties introduced. The musical efforts of Chris Green were also worthy of praiso. Particularly pleasing and truo to life was Mies Clark's impersonation of a little girl. The bogus initiation was especially amusing to members of the secret societies in the audience. A Bis Land Scheme. A land scheme, tho most gigantic ever formed in the Northwest, has come to the surface iu Minneapolis. About 3,000 acres, at a cost of $1,500,000, have been bought near the city limits on three trunk railway lines. Tho land will bo built up with manufactories and mechanics' houses Homewhat after the plan of Pullman, III., only ou a much larger scale. It is estimated that $7,000,000 will be the cost of the land and improvements. Factories employing an aggregato of about 1,000 hands are already secured and others are coming. The leading men of the city are in the deal. Jielloronto ttroko Up. The following messago was received by Manager Farnsworth this morning: Bellehonte, Sojpt. 2ft. J. N.

On next Wednesday, October 1st, tho Republican candidate for Governor, Senator George W. Delamater; Senator Louis A. Watres, the Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and Colonel Thomas J. Stewart, candidate for Secretary of Internal Affairs, will visit this oity. They will be accompanied by General D. H. Hastings, of Bellefonto, and Senator A. D. Harlan, of Chester county. The distinguished party will spend a portion of the day in WilHamsport, and a Republican mass meeting will be held in that place in the afternoon. At 6 o'clock in the evening tho Delamater party will leave Willi am sport by a speoial train for Lock Haven, and will arrive hero about 6:"J0 o'clook. A grand Republican mass meeting will be held in tho Court House at 7:30 p.m. The arrangements for the re-coption of the party have not yet been fully completed, but this muoh is certain it promises to be an occasion of much importance. County Chairman Malone has secured the Axe Makers' band, of Mill Hall, for tho evening. Republicans from all over the county and Democrats, too-should take this opportunity of seeing the popular Republican candidate for Governor and hear him diecusB tbe issues of the campaign. People from tbe country can have a pleasant ride home after the meeting, as the moon will be just past the full. Turnout, Republicans, and make the occasion one of the most memorable in the history of Clinton county political campaigns. Membership Crusade Day. Tho offlcera of tho National W. C. T. U. have set apart Saturday, Sept. 27th as a day to bo devoted to securing new members for the society, not only of working members, but of honorary members. What is everybody's business is nobody's; what may ba done ou any day of the year is likely not to be done thoroughly at all. Tho city will be divided off into districts among the existing membors and well wishers of the W. C. T. U., and and a persistent effort made to inoreaso the numbers of those who pledge themselves as total abstainers, even if they oanuot bn active workers. No work could be entered upon for a day that would promise more of blessing to tho individual life, to tho home, and to the nation. Will not each white ribboner as she reads this paragraph, lift up hor heart to God in prayer for a blessing on that day, and pledge herself to be, if possiblo, among the number who shall bring in the sheaves throughout its hallowed and helpful hours. What Kenovo Thinks of the Minstrels. The following very complimentary notice of Vreeland's Minstrels at the Opera House to-night is taken from the Renovo "Vreeland's Minstrels showed to a crowded houBe in Harvey's Hall last night, who were more than pleased with the performance and we do not hesitate to Bay that this is the best show that our people have witnessed in Renovo for many years. The performance gavo excellent satisfaction throughout, but tho speoial tios by Messrs. Larry, McAvoy, George W. Woods and Franey and Kelley, were particularly worthy of mention. Each of the above gentlemen responded to a number of encores, and should th�y ever return to our city tbey will get a reception that will amount" to an ovation. It might alBO be mentioned that the musical branch of the show, especially the orchestra, was tho bdst ever seen with a minstrel party here/' Ancient Order United Workmen. Hon. W. II. James of Philadelphia, do. livored an interesting address boforo the Ancient Order of United Workmen of Renovo at Spangler's hall on Wednesday evening. He gave a history of tho organization, its objects aud aims. It has a membership of 2-12,000 in tho United States, and 16,000 in Pennsylvania. lllg Timber Sale. Messrs. Hall, Kaul & Co., of Ridgway have purchased over 3,000 aores of hemlock aud ohorry timbor in Elk county, east of Glen Hazel. They intend to erect two largo saw mills on tho tract, tho combined capacity of which will be over 100,-000 feet of lumber per day. Hoard of Trade Mecliuj*.

When a giddy young actress is called Birdie she feels that she must be very "fly." When a bee presonts his little bill, every porson helps to admit tbe point of it. Tho expense of a thing is quite different from ex-peuuies. "I breathed a song into the air," signs the poet.

Washington, Sept. 25.-The Republican conferees on the Tariff bill have definitely decided to report tbe bill back to tbe House. The conference report will announco an agroemeut on each aod every item in dispute between tho two Houses, and will not, as has beeu stated, be only a partial report. It will be presented to the House very soon after that body meet3 tomorrow morning, and there is confident expectation enteitained by the conferees that the report will be considered and disposed of before the House adjourns for the day. Although there is a possibility that a vote on the adoption of the conference report may be delayed until the following day, through the desire of members to make explanations of their views on matters, with regard to which it has been necessary to make concessions. ALL POINTS SETTLED. All the Republicans of the Ways and Moans Committee got together this evening, and the decision to make the report and move its speedy adoption was determined upon after full consultation. There will bo a meeting of the full committee tomorrow morning before the House meets to formally pass upon the report before the presentation to the Honse. The only question yet left open to be decided in the morning is the dat* upon which the bill shall go into effect. Tbe period intervening between the approval of the bill and its enforcement will bo brief, and it is thought will certainly not exceed two weeks. BUOEK AND TWINE. The sugar and binder swine clause, which havo been the chief obstacle to an agreement, are regarded as at last agreed npon and the matter is now considered closed. The following is very near to what the agree men i on these two matters will be sugar, free below No. 1G, as fixed by the House, above 16 dutiably at one-half cent a pound. The bounty to be paid native producers will be applied to only such sugar as grade above 80 degrees, po-lariscope test, Between 80 and 00 the bounty will be 11 cents a pound. Above 90 two cents a pound. Binder twine dutiable at approximately J of a oent, is liable to qary slightly from this fig ore. Popular prloea to see tho minttrols tonight, 25, 35 and 50 cents. What the Democrats are Doing. The Democratic Senatorial Conference at Tyrone at the hour of adjournment Thuraay night had made no nomination. The conference adjourned to meet at 1) o'clock this morning, and up to 1 o'clock this afternoon no word of whit was being done had been received. At Ridgway Thursday tho democratic couforrees of the Twenty-eight congressional distriot met and on the fourteenth ballot Georgo F. Krebbs, of Clarion, was nominated for Congress by the votes of the conferees from Elk, For- 1 cat and Clarion counties. ' Congressman Jamea Kerr, of Clearfield and Democratic State Chairman was a j candidate for nomination and his friends ! it is said, are very indignant at bis defeat. There was a candidate from each county I in the distriot. I WHAT KERIt's DEFEAT MEANS. The Philadelphia Press says State Chair- j man Kerr received a dispatch at the Democratic State Headquarters yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock. Tho Democratic Chairman expected nothing until ho opened it. When he read it his face blanched like marble and his band shook like a leaf. His agitation was so marked that the clerks in tho room whero he Btood notioed it. Chairman Korr read and ro-read the dispatch before he soemod to realixe its real meaning. Then, aftjr going over it several timed, he hastily withdrew to his private room and sat down. what 19 said in washington. A dispatch from Washington says Kerr's defeat is regarded by Republican members of the Pennsylvania delegation as tho most important happening that has yet occurred in tho campaigu, and it is tho concensus oT opiuion of the Pennsylvania delegation, Democrats aud Republicans alike, that the action of tbe conference in turning down Mr. Kbit will bo worth many thousands of votes to tho Republican candidate for Governor'. 6H.>;.\.T0K1A1.

For three generations the Van Amburgh; Bhow has been recognized as being at the head and front among tho leading tented shows of the world; and for the past ten or twelve years as much as can be said of the Walter L. Main show. It will, therefore, be an agreeable announcement that these two famous tented organizations joined their forces, making a formidable consolidation that will defy competition. This season, in their almost limitless program of attractions, they present many features new to the public, among which may be mentioned Madame Paulino Dubois, who has beeD truthfully styled "The Female Hercules," and who is' said to Be tho strongest woman living; the trained riding Pug dogs and Pigs; the man with jaws of steel, lilting a horse with bis teeth; trained dogs, horses, elephants, donkeys, and a hosts of riders acrobats and gymnasts, together with a quintette of clowns, making one of tbe grandest and most wonderful exhibitions that ever appeared in this city. A grand street parade will take place at 12 o'elock, noon. Notwithstanding the consolidation of these two great shows, one 2o-ccnt ticket will admit to all the departments of tho big show.

Kinsloe as one of the conferees from this county to tbe Congressional conference which meets at the Park Hotel in WilHamsport on Tuesday, 30th inst., at 4 p. m. Mr. Kinsloe will be necessarily absent in the East, but tho claims of Clinton's choice will not suffer by tho change. Show Bills Everywhere. It is seldom that Lock Haven is as completely "posted" with show bills as at present. Circus bills and theatre posters and hangers are everywhere, and mammoth bill boards erected for the purpose are covered with piotures which not only attraot the attention of the^yonngsters but of the grown people. Congressional Conference.] . The Ropublioan Congressional Conference for this distriot will meet at the Park Hotel, WilHamsport, next Tuesday after, noon, 30th iust., at 4 o'elock. A special car to convey the Look Haven friends of Mr. Hopkins to Wiliiamsppft will be attached lo Day Express, which loaves here at 11:10 a. m._   _ A Delightful Serenade.
