Farther Reference to the Trouble* in Ireland and Comment* on tlie Subject- Tbe Relation! or Labor and Capital and Some Sound Advice to the Working men as to the Position They Should Take. London, Oct. 23 -Gladstone Bpoko at West Calder to-day. He referred to the result of the Eccles election as a forecast of the triumph of the Liberals, in the coming general election, which, if the present ratio of gains continued, would give them a majority of ninety. Recurring to the Irish question he objected to name a separatist as appliod to homo rulers. The appelation he said was untrue and unfair. Thore was now no question among the Liberals about removing the Irish representation from Westminster, nor did they propose to repeal the act of union, but they did propose to delegate to Ireland. He advocated the principle of one man, one vote, and shorter parliaments. the recent strikes. Referring to the strikes Gladstone said that dowu to tho prcseut time whon the contest between labor and capital had gone to the sharp issues of strikes and lockouts, the laboring man had in the main been right. Among tho means the workiogmen ought to select in order to strengthen their position legal combination was tho most valuable. It was a sound system, aud in only rare oxcep tions was it harsh upon individuals. The bulk of what workmen had gained in contests with capitalists had been through the judicious use of combination. Workiogmen ought not to contract the habit of appealing to Parliament to keep them out of difficulty by a special act. Freedom of action and reliance upon themselves and unity of policy would lift them to a higher position as individuals and as a ulass. I (Cheers,) ! the eight hour movement. Commenting upon the enormous.power workingmen now possess he said it would prove beneficial, as the judgement of great questions by the masses is more enlightened than that of the educated classes. He would not venture a decisive opinion upon a general eight hour bill until be saw a definate measure. In spite of the recent vote of the traders unions Gladstone did not see his way to consider a general legislative proposal. A special eight hour miner's bill was ou a different footing. Ho was inclined to think that eight hours a day was quite enough for miners. Do not fail to sec Miss Marcella Forreste and the popular comedian H. U.

David Pitohard used to edit a weekly newspaper in a little town not a hundred miles from Cleveland. It did not require all Dave's time to write the editorials, so he hunted up tho local news, helped stick type and on press days took hit* turn at the hand press, just for exercise. One day Dave was looking over the exchanges and ever and anon cutting out squares and par-allelograms, when in came a strapping big fellow whose scowling countenance aud careless manner of shutting the door would have convinced the uninitiated that he was after satisfaction. Dave laid down his paper, stuck the scissors in his pocket and smilingly said: "Good morning, sir." "That ain't got ad-d bit of bearin' on tho orfrject of my vialt; I'm in hero to clean out this office." "Good boy! you're just tho man I'm looking for; you'll find a broom and a sprinkler behind the door. Don't make any more dust than you can help." "Oldluuy, you think I'rajokin', do you'.' It won't bemore'n a small numerator with a big denominator fraction of a second till you'll know that I'm as serious as a death sentence. The kind of rcnovatin' that I'm about to do for you is to shake out your forms, stir up your galleys and paint a nimbus cloud over them lynx eyes of yours, That's what's going to engage my attention for the next half hour," and tho big fellow kicked tho paper-cutter over, and distributed a galley of dead 'ads' over tho floor. "You will find a broom behind tho door, my accommodating friend," Baid Davo raising a heavy six shooter, "and you may take the broom and clean out this office according to your first proposition, and tho better you do your work tho lighter 1*11 pull on this trigger.

"Work that sweeping machine." "I've been drinking." "Operations must begiu iu half a soc-oud." "My little girl's sick and she's cry in' for her father." "In a quarter of a second tho devi! will have a form to carry out." "Pitty my crippled wife." "And this paper will get the" first scoop of tbe accident." "Hold on ! hold on ! I'll sweep her up !' And tbe fellow seized the broom and made the dirt Hy like a street cleaner. When he had finished Davo escorted him to the street, and after making him promise to call again, bade him good-by. THE GEORGIA RIOT Details  of the Shooting* That Canted So Mncli Excitement. Savannah, Ont. 23.-The Morning News to-night received the following special from Way Cross, concerning the so-called riot in Ware county: L. B. Varne leased a lot of land from the Way Cross Lumber Company in Coffee county, and who recently commenced preparations for working for turpentine this Fall. Ths same lot of land was sold by H. M. Pitt to Tom Sears, and the timber leased to F. M. Stokes for turpentine purposes. A week or ten days ago Tom Sears ordered the Yarno hands off the land with his gun. Tho first of the week Varne had the work resumed, notifying the parties that he would submit to legal process, otherwise he should work tho lot, but cautioned his hands against trouble and ordered them to act strictly on the defense. Tuesday Tom Soars waylaid Varne's wagon and shot his teamster, who is not expected to live.   Wednesday afternoon ' Tom Soars, his father Frank Sears, Bryan , McLendon, Samcs Hendricks and others ; came over into Ware county about one ' and a half miles from the lot of land in; dispute, to the House of Robert Knight,1 colored,  where  Welcome  Golden   and other employes of Yarne were stopping out of the rain, and commenced firing into the house. The hands all ran except Knight and Golden, who returnad the fire, killing McLendon and Ilenrioks, woodsman of Stokes,  and   wounding  Frank Sears. Yarne was six miles away at his still, and knew nothing of the trouble until afterwards. Further trouble is not apprehended. TERSELY TOLD HAPPENINGS.

In one place where the clay has been opened - the vein is thought to be one hundred feet thick. Air. Miller states that nearly if not all of his land is uuderlaid with clay, some of which is less than 200 feet from the railroad. There are, he says, three different kinds of clay on his lands. He has the same kind of clay as that which is being shipped from Wayne to Williamsport. There is also a clay of yellowish color which is suitable for tho manufacture of terra ootta ware, lawn ornaments, etc. Another clay found on his lands is suitable for the manufacture of pottery ware. That Lock Haven is situated in the midst of an abundance of day beds of fiuest quality is being made more evident every day. As the prospecting progresses now deposits are being opened, and the natural advantages of the city for future , growth aud prosperity increased. That Lock Haven will in a few years become! prominent for its brick manufactories thore is little room for doubt. Engineer Illalr Injured.

Beauty seems to be rnnulng to waist. It stays there, of corset docs. A man often finds it difficult to break the ice, but the past summer it didn't take any effort for ice to break a man. The prestidifitatuer'* feat and the counterfeiter's trick are much alike-oue is passing strange and the other is passiug queer. A Boston ohild, becoming impatient at its mother's delay in hearing its evening prayers, exclaimed : ''Come, mamma, Dod's a waiting." The fellow who forges a chick is very apt to wear a check suit. The tramp works harder doing nothing than the fellow who performs an honest day's works. Imitation is not difficult. A monkey can imitate. If we were compelled to count the clock ticks, slower time would be made in the race for riches, Tbe grocer can reduoe hiB weight without changing his diet. He merely doctors his scales. A level surface is fiat, but there is a distinction between a level headed man and a fiat headed one. There are socio ugly places in some of the sidewalks of the oity likely to cause falls this winter. There is moro difference in the name than in tbe shape of many articles of feminine apparel. Fashion plate, not tin plate, bothers the ladies. Grammatically speaking, Bays an exchange, a kiss is a noun; technically speaking, a conjunction; and generally speaking a first-class article. A 13-year-old girl in Cincinnati haB given birth to triplets. Somehow people who have once lived here always gravitate back to the old home. There's a drum in the ear, but it does not drowu tbe melodies of music or nature. Tho frog is compelled to leap for life. It takes nerve to have a nervy tooth pulled. Indian summer will probably need a blanket.   It's liable to bo frost bitten. Cultivate homo and street etiquette and let the drawing room take care of itself. The man who prays publicly aud swears privately fools his neighbors, but not the devil. Tbe light is slowly but snrely being turned on the .Dark Continent. Tho potato is the root of all evil in Ireland at present. Homos aro blasted when a blast furnace explodes. A man will go into a barroom and pull out a handful of money, but when he goes to church he fishes around for a single ooiu and not a very large one at that. The oratorical prayer comes from the lips, but tho prayer offered up in secret comes from tho heart. If the laws of nature were not violated there would be fewer funerals. Tho tariff has put np the prices ofs Sumatra wrappers. The fascinating morning wrappers worn by tbe beat half of tho borne uro not affected, howover.

MAJOR BARTELOTT'S DIARY Stories Published That Placos Stauley iu An Unenviable Light ACCUSED OF DISGBA0EPUL CONDUCT The Writing, of the Murdered Commander of the Rear Column Hold; the Great explorer Re.pomlble for Disastrous Failure-Stanley'. Character Assailed, in Addition to Other Spicy Exposure*. London, Oot. 23.-The diaries and letters of Major Bartelott, the murdered commander of Stanley's rear guard, are published here to-day. Charges of malignity, ingratitude, misrepresentation and desertion are brought against Stanley. Besides other less important acousations, the issue presented is whether the misfortunes of the rear column were due to the indecision of Major Bartelott and that of his companions, or whether Stanley himself was primarily responsible. In bis book Stanley finds fault because they did not follow tbe advance column as directed. Bartelott claims that his brother's diaries and letters, as well as the testimony of the surviving officers, show that Stanley made it utterly impossible to carry out his orders, as he took all the strong, able men and those of good character with him, leaving to the rear guard the sick, feeble and incorrigible. Major Bartelott's diaries show that Stanley threatened to blast his reputation with Lord Wolsely and to ruin his oareer in the army by writing to Major Trittenham. This expose of Stanley's ohmraoter, as shown up by the diaries and letters, makes spicy reading. The story inclndes an account of a quarrel between Stanley aud Jephsop, on which occasion Stanley offered to fight him. The publication has caused a great sensation here, and tbe papers are unanimous in expressing tbe opinion that it was indiscreet, to say tbe least, to print what Major Barttelot, a man avowedly of a hasty temper, never intended should sec the light; but that, however, this may be, the chargeB oall for a full and candid answer. Mr. Stanley refuses to be interviewed on the subjeot. Display of Far Goods. In tbe windows of the Bee Hive store there is a display of fine fur garments today which attracts the atten'. ion of every lady who passes. One of tbe garments is a ladies ooat of Alaska seal skia trimmed with Russian sable, and valued at $1,000. There are also two handsome imported carriage and reception wrapt valued respectively at $300 and (400. Tbe garments are shown by Mr. D. O. Robinson, representing Henry A.

The oommittee recommended the passage of an act making it obligatory upon all manufacturers or employes of labor to file a report of tbe location of their respective manufaoturies or places of employment aud with penalty attached in ease of neglect, or refusal to comply with tho same.

"Fare.gentlemen," suggested a conductor in the smoking car to a party of four oaid players, who held on their knees between them a large atlas. Three of them, quietly handed up tickets, but the fourth man near the window became suddenly embarrassed. "Fare!" again remarked tbe brats mounted official, rather sternly. ; The passenger addressed replied with a series of spasmodic winks and tapped tbe back of his cards. "Come, sir, I'm in a hurry," said the conductor. "I haven't got any tioket" .. . "Pay your fare then, with the usual alight advance." "Boys, will you allow me to take a rake-off?" inquired the delinquent traveler. "Not much," answered the trio. "My money's all up," said the passenger, appealingly to the conduotor. "You will have to get off then," answered the conductor, reaching for the bell rope. The man laid his cards faee downward and said in a low tone to one of the other players: "What do you do?" "I raise you," was the reply. "How much?" "Twenty dollars." The man by the window passed his hand up to the condactor. Tbe latter gave it one glance. Then he released a large fat pocket book from Inside his ooat took ont two $20 bills, and handed them to the delinquent. I see your twenty and go you twenty better," he said. This complicated matters, and the original raiser of $20 shifted uneasily in his seat. Finally he said: "I raise you $10. "Call him," said the conduotor, banding over an X; I'm iff a hnrry," The delinquent traveler did so, and was about to take in the money on four aoes, when the other player showed straight flush and pooketed all the money; including the conductor's. The latter was dazed; the delinquent passenger meek and abashed. "Now you will nave to  get  oft," snapped the oonduotor. 1 "Yes, sir; stop the train," be replied.   ' Tbe whole party got off.
