A demand was made on the company for Sears* reinstatement and an increase in pay. The offieials'replied^thaUthe matter would have to be taken under advisement and last night the men struck. To-day, however. President Hopkins, of the federation, telegraphed lie* men on the Evansville and Terre Haute aud Evansville and Indianapolis road- to go to work pending a conference.

Canada, Sept. 25.—With a desire to push the Birchen trial through in shorter time than it has threatened to occupy, the court met this morning at ‘.i:30, half an hour earlier than previously. A crowd gathered around tile cab to see the prisoner on his arrival. In spite of hundreds of eyes which are watching him the prisoner does not flinch. He was in tin* dock this morning about twenty minutes before the judge entered. He was attended by his special guard, Uniwhistler. who stated that Birchen had slept well and eaten a hearty break-last. There was even a greater attendance ot ladies than on any previous occasion. Their entrance in crowds just as the court opened interrupted th** proceedings. and made several calls of silence necessary, and even then the proceedings had to bt* suspended for a time until order was restored. The tirst witness was S. B. Fuller, manager of the Imperial bank here. Ile identified the signature of F. A. Somerset on certain checks as that of the prisoner who opened an account with the Imperial bank on tin* loth or lith of December, I --s. ll*- identitied als" letters as those of the prisoner. On crossexamination by Mr. Klackstoek, the chief counsel for tin* prisoner, the witness said the account was opened in the usual way and ( hecks drawn as usual. IF had no reason to doubt, being an old resident i of Woodstock, and as he had not seen the prisoner before, that the prisoner had just arrived in town when he opened the bank account. Osier, chief counsel for the crown, wanted to put in as evidence, and have entered on the record, certain letters to Mellorish, through whom tin* prisoner and Benwell were brought together, but Blackstock strongly objected on the ground that though the handwriting was proved the fact of mailing the letters or their receipt by Mellerish wa- not proved. Thi- point was noted by the judge, who said that if In* decided that the evidence should not be received In* would so instruct the jury. The letters were read. They state that the prisoner had seen young Benwell and his father, Col. Benwell. and they had decided that the young man should come to Canada. They wanted him to go for three months, and to pay for his bargain if he liked it after a trial of that length. The letter-covered the skeleton of tile correspondence which took place from the time the negotiations were entered upon with telegrams -eut ostensibly from the Stafford house, Buffalo, hut really from tin* prisoner, telling him at Niagara Falls to -hip heavy baggage to Niagara Falls, N. Y. The effect of these telegrams wa- to -how that the prisoner had carried on a systematic deceit on Benwell and hi-father, and after the young man’s disappearance on young Belly, who was with them, and very anxious about Ben-well not appearing. During th** reading of thes** telegrams exposing his fraud BireheH’s usually pale complexion was suffused with a slight flush of red. Ile made note- occasionally during the reading of the letters. Conductor Poole of the Grand Trunk railroad testified that to the best of his knowledge there were only two passengers on hi- train for Eastwood on February IT. He thought they came Through from Suspension bridge. Tic y were, he thought al th** time, Englishmen, and answered in appearance to the prisoner and Benwell. Ile saw that one liad very high boots of English make. with th** trowsers rolled up. This man, he said. bore a strong resemblance to the prisoner, though Ic* could not -wear to his identity. His evidence wa- in the main the same as h** had given at the inquest aud at the preliminary investigation. In reply to questions by Mr. Black-stock. Mr. Pooh* said be traveled an average of over a thousand miles a week, and handled in a year hundreds of thou-! sands of pas-engers. Mr. Blackstock I read from the evidence of the witu**-- at j the tirst investigation, -bowing that his 1 pr>->ent testimony was different on some points. Mis- Lockhart, of Woodstock, -aid she was traveling west. February IT. from Paris past Woodstock; -Ic* saw two passengers get off at East Woodstock. On seeing Birchen afterwards in jail -he identitied him as the one who had sat j before her on the train. The other -ic* ; recognized in the body of Benwell when • exhumed. On cross-examination by Blackstock -lie acknowledged that. | through the reading of an account ■ of the Anding or the body she , had not for some time connected this in-j cident with the tragedy. Something I -aid in Birehell's evidence tirst brought j the connection to her mind, on a pre-! vious occasion she had stated that she i had takeh little notice of tic* passenger.-. I but her evidence of to-day, as Blaek-| stock showed, did not agree with this. I Alfred Hayward, an old miller living | at Eastwood, saw on February 17th two I men passing by his house, one of whom ! he thought was the prisoner. On previous examination Heyward would not swear to the identity of the prisoner as one of these men. II is testimony was weakened by Attorney Blackstock pointing to a man in the gallery and asking witness if he could see a man there among the ladies. Witness said he could, but couldn't tell who he was.“Yet you profess,” said Blackstock. “to recognize the prisoner as the gentleman who passed twelve yards distant.’’ Ticket Agent Drego swore to the sale of two tickets to Eastport—a most unusual thing. John Crosby swore to meeting the two Englishmen on the governor’s road. IF-identified the prisoner as one of the men and swore he saw tin* other one dead in tile Princeton cemetery the da> Ben-well's body was exhumed. Crosby fainted during the cross examination. Mrs. Ferguson saw two Englishmen pass her place on the governor’s road, but the description did not tally faithfully with that of Birchen and Benwell. Several other witnesses swore to seeing two men going toward the swamp on February 17; to seeing tracks iii the swamp, (dc. George Fredenberg, George McDonald, and George Higginson swore to hearing two shots in the swamp on the afternoon of February 17. Higginson came here from Austin, Nevada, to testify. Alex. Logan met a man walking alout* to Eastwood February 17, near the and identitied Birchen as the Attempt to Burn ail 01*1 Kenident of Bloomington to Death. Bloomington. IIL. Sept. 25.—Thomas Belcham, an old resident and business man of Bloomington, relates a curious occurrence which happened to him .yesterday morning, and came near bringing his existence to a sudden ending. “Tuesday night,” said Mr. Belcham, "I spent tile evening at my home playing cards with a few old friends. I retired quite early, and awakening before day I scratched a match, when mv bed r"om broke out in a solid sheet of (lame. I was badly scorched and burned about the    hands and feet,    but managed to extinguish the lire, which had    extended    to the    bed clothing. I found that, the carpet and other things in the room had been saturated with oil. which I believe was done during the night while I -lept, with tho intention of    causing my    death.”    Mr Belcham has left the house and taken a room in another part of town, believing that he i- threatened with death where hi; has lived. He states that lie has found poison bottles about the house, and that his physician says that he lias been the victim of slow    poison.    Bel cham has recently had domestic troubles, and, as his life i- heavily insured, lo* is of the opinion that his taking off has l»***n planned.

Tipperary is the scene of the outrage, and prominent Englishmen whose testimony will be believed by their countrymen were witnesses of tin* di--graceful scene. London is already excited over the news of the bloodshed published iii the afternoon papers and the most sensational reports are in circulation. Telegrams from John Morley, Mr. Illingworth and others received at the National Liberal club leave no room to doubt that the attack on th** people was deliberate and unprovoked. When the people were attacked they defended themselves vigorously and many of th** police were severely handled. Troops have been ordered to the scene and It is believed by the liberal leaders that everything po—ible will be done by the castle officials and partisan magistrates to provoke a further conflict that would enable them to strike terror by ordering the troops to tire on the crowd. The people in Tipperary are excited enough to do anything and it requires the utmost efforts of their leaders to them quiet. O’BRIEN S TRIAL. Aini*l»t RAILROAD MATTERS.

Dr KUN, Sept. 25.—There wa- much surprise of the authorities who were taking Patrick O’Brien t*» Tipperary fur hearing t**-day when a large delegation of prominent nationalists boarded the same train. Among them were John Morley, John Dillon, Alfred Illing--wortli, member of parliament. T. M. Healy, commoner, Harrington and several others. On th** arrival of the train at Tipperary the nationalists started for the court house in a body. They had not gun** far when they stopped at a street corner and entered into conversation. While they were standing therein no way disturbing th** peace, they were ordered by th*- police to move on. John O'Connor, member of parliament, took very vigorous exception to thi-order and showed his contempt for th** police by t ailing upon the crowd, which by that time had become very large, to give three cheers for John Morley. The cheers were given with good will, much I to the exasperation of the police, who I thereupon charged upon the crowd and I attempted to force it to move forward. Im the melee that followed the policemen did not hesitate to use their batons. I One burly constable aimed a blow at : John Morley himself, but John O'Connor who stood near, warded it off. The nationalists then continued their way slowly toward the court house As this was th** day fixed for the trial ' of the arrested nationalists, the streets I of Tipperary were full to overflowing with people interested in the case. Early I in the day it became known that still j another arrest had been made. The victim this time was Thomas Coldon, member of parliament for Tipperary Ea-t. II** was taken this morning at Limerick and brought to Tipperary. When court opened th** authorities decided not to open the doors to the general public, but ; to admit only those who were imme-I diately interested in the trial. But the I crowd pressed forward, trying to force their way into the court room. The police stoutly resisted, charging repeatedly upon the crowd arid using their clubs freely. At last the crowd was gradually forced back aud the police succeeded in maintaining a clear space in front of the court house. During the conflict many persons were wounded with blows from the policemen's bludgeons. Among the wounded were Timothy Harrington, member of parliament for Dublin, and a Mr. Halifax. Both received heavy blow- on the head which bled profusely. They made their way into the court room as soon a- they could, but by that time their hair and coat collars were -aturated with blood and they presented a pitiable spectacle. Their appearance in court created a profound sensation and lent additional emphasis to th** complaint whiMi William O’Brien was making to the court as they entered, of the brutality of th** police. John Morley then arose and addressed the court, manifesting great agitation. He earnestly pleaded with th** court to protect th** populace against the wanton use of the club by th** police. Meanwhile the nationalist leaders con- j tinned to protest against tin* exclusion of the general public from the court room. 'I’lic authorities at last yielded and the doors were thrown open. At the outset Dillon objected to being tried before the resident magistrate (Shannon). The grounds of his objection were that he had had a personal encounter with Shannon on one occasion at fas he I. At that tim** he asserted that Shannon had grossly insulted him. He urged, therefore, that there would he manifest impropriety in Shannon’s sitting at the present trial. Shannon refused to admit the validity of Dillon’s objections. He knew of no reason whv he should not go on with th** case. He declared that he would perform his duty without bias. Win. O’Brien also objected to Shannon. The last time he saw Shannon, lie said. Shannon was at the head of a body of police who were using their clubs on th*' people. Moreover. Shannon had already tried him three times on similar charges. His sitting in the present ca^e, O'Brien said, was indecent and an insult.

He Admits All the Charges Royalist Intrigues London, Sept. 25.—The comte de Paris has created a sensation just as he -tarted for America by throwing a bombshell. It was aimed at the republic, but has fallen in the midst of his own followers and caused confusion and dismay in their ranks. His letter to M. Bocher, which he intended a- a manifesto to the French people and is published as such by the royalist journals, i> the worst political blunder of the many committed by the royalists since the comte's grandfather, Louis Philippe, “King of the French,” tied from the wrath of the insurgent populace of Paris, having time to take only a silk hat and an umbrella. in 1848. The cynical admission that his action in the last elections was dictated by a desire to divide the repuolicans, so as to prepare the way for the restoration of the monarchy, is regarded here as simply suicidal. It fastens the last nail in Boulanger’s political coffin and is a tacit confession of the truth of all the charges of conspiracy to overthrow the republic by force which have been recently brought against the fallen general. It places the radicals and socialists who supported Boulanger in a most humiliating position, and effectually destroys all chance of future coalitions between the royalists and the radicals in the chamber of deputies. That is the verdict of men who know France i well. By the time the urbanist party Th** strang** I Ilion of Infant* ot land. Indiana, Mother. SHEI DY VILLI , Iud.. Sept. 25.
