The Axe They Mi ar pen rd for tho Radi* cals’ Fingers Will Cut Off Their Own Hand* — Mr. Tupper’s Instructions ob the PGhsrtes Question—A Case Similar to the Maybrtrk Poisoning London,*Fob 27 —The Conservatives have now arrived at a full realization of the fact that tbeircin ulation among the electors of the north division of 8t Pancreas of a pamphlet designed to show that the report ut the Parnell cotnmtsaion was really a verdict of guilty against all of the Irish members accused by The Tunes wa* a mistake likely to prove fatal to their <‘hauce* of retaining the seat. A large majority of the workingmen iii the •-ou'-tituency are Radicals, and it was these men that the pamphlet wa* intended to reach, but it I* now plain that it has reached a great deal further, with the result that the Tone* are lo*ing ground among those who have formerly supported the government The ministerial party stoutly assert that the action of Mr, Came, in denouncing The Tunes and its charges against the Irish mein tiers has had no effect upon the electors, but the fai ts do not sustain this declaration, as will undoubtedly be *een when the St. Pancreas election takes place. HK TUPPKR’g MISSION. It i* officially stated that the Hon. Charles H. Tupper, Canadian minister of marine and iidicric*, now iii Washington, has received jhikilive instructions to confine his labors in regfu'd to the relations between tho United State* and Canada solely to the consideration of the Behring's sea fisheries question. ANOTHER MAV BKK K CAME A case similar in many respects to that of Mrs, Maybrick ha* lawn brought to public notice by the arrest of Mrs. Klizatieth Rot ie rte of IO Chester street, on the charge of admiut'teriug )>oison to her hu*t*and and children. All of her victims are ill from the effect* of the poison and it Lh feared that one of them will not recover. The | sd ice of Liverpool raided twenty-ai* clubs in th.it city iu deference to repeated complaint* that gambling was carried on without iv**!taint in the houses indicated, and in fact that gaming was the sole reason for their existence as places of resort. Arrests were made rn every one of the plat'ea visited. The illness of Mrs O’Shea will ne<>eMumly still further delay the trial of her husband's suit agam*t her for divorce. Herr Zimmer, editor of a newspaper published in Breslau, has l*een sentenced to imprisonment for two years for insulting referents** to the eoqieror in commenting on bis majesty’s lalior rescripts. THE SNAITH CASE. It Ii Continued at Albany — Hnaith ss the Htand. Albany, Feb. 27.—The hearing cm the Rnaitb chum was continued before the stats board of claims yesterday.

The couneel for the state objected to the Anding. Mr Snaith was then sworn. The attorney general refused to allow him to affirm that be had carried out the contract, but he followed it through and detailed the work done. Knaitb admitted that there had been several changes f rom the specification,but was allowed by the attorney general to give reasons torso doing The objection was filmily uot sustained bv the court, ami Snaith explained that the changes were absolutely necessary aud made at the suggestion of the architect and super)utendrmt af public buildings, lim changes did not materially affect the price. He bai received from the s»tate about $231,-(KIO as part payment on the contract. On croas-exaruination Snaith said be had not brought the estimate pa) aux he made out, I local I 4* he did not know where they were, latter be agreed to produce them to-day.

Washington, Feb. 27. —The report of the committee on railroads favoring the construction of a continental railroad was adopted by the pan-American cong rosa The rv|»ort recommends: That rn railroad connecting all or the majority of the nations represented in this conference, will contribiitegreatly to the development of the moral relation* and material interest* of the said natant*. Thai the means Is-st adapted to )»*gin and carry out its execution is the appointment of an international commission of engineers to study the jiossible route*, determine their true length, estimate their respective cost, and compare their reciprocal advantage*. That the comntis.*ion should be composed of thiee engineer* appointed by each nation, arith the privilege of dividing into sub-com-inissions, and to appoint as many othe* engineers and employes as might he considered ne*vs.-jiiy for the mote raj.id execution of the work. That the railroad, in so far as the common inter*' t* will permit, should unite the prin-ei|*al cities lying in the vicinity of its route. That if the general direction of the line cannot lie altered without great inconven-ien<*e, for the purpose mentioned in the preceding article, branch lines should be surveyed lo connect those cities with the main line. i hat exiling railways should Im* utilized as far a, j»o ible and compatible with the route and conditions of the continental railroad. That the construction, management and ob lation of the line should tie st the ex* |>en*e of tile com•easionarim, or of the persons to whom they sutelet the work or to whom they transfer their rights, with all doe formalities, the consent of the respective governments first iieing obtained That all materials necessary for the construct!**! and nitration of the railroad should tie exempt Dom import duties. That all personal and real property of the railroad us,-,! in its construction and operation* should lie exempt from all taxation, national, state and municipal That the execution of a work of su^h magnitude deserves to lie further encouraged by subsidies, cessions of laud or guaranties at a minimum of interest.

Fiord Clarkson Fleeted Department t oui manlier, and All the Rest of His TUket Defeated — Resolution* Against the Dependent Pension HIU, and Opposing Decoration Day Desecration. Syracuse. N Y., Feb. 27. —At yesterday’s encampment of the New York state department of the Grand Army of tbs Republic Cot Fiord Clarkson of New York wa* elected department commander, but contrary to ex-jMK tation, all the other candutHtes on his ticket were defeated It is the first tim# in the Grand Army history of th:* state that the man elected to the first office in the gift of the department has not linen able to carry the rest of the ticket along with him Alfred Lytb of Buffalo, one of th* candidates for senior vice commander, was thought to be a* sure a w inner as Clarkson himself, but the result of the iiallot showed hi* comjietitor. Homer B Webb of Ontario county, well in the lead. It was the same in the choice of the other officers who were elected as follows: Junior vice commander, Gardner C. Hibbard of Elmira; medical director, Dr. H. W. Carpenter of Oneida; chai dam. Rev. Robert Hurley, D. D , of New York. The following council of admini-stration was chosen: Theodore L. Poole of Syracuse, Charles H. Freeman of New York, Thomas B. Odell and Martin Short of New York, aud John Kohler of Utica. Col Clarkson, the succanful candidate for department commander, is about fit) year* of H e. and i* president of the Riverside bauk, New Yolk. Col Clarkson announced the appointment of William A Wallace of Albany as adjutant general, the other appointment* on hi* staff tieiug reserved. Voting at a Grand Army encampment is a long and tedious process, no less than four hour* tieing required in the taking of one ballot. All the officer* mentioned above receiv'd a majority on the first ballot, aud the Ic lay that has been so common mother years was thus avoided. The committee on resolution* reported at the afternoon session. The principal resolution and the one that excited the most en-thu iu*ui wa* one favoring the per diem pension bill, protesting against the dependent bdl and a**ei tmg that its passage would not satisfy the veterans of this state. Corporal Tanner, who has alway* opposed this measure, made a complete flop and (ame out squarely in its favor. Had he attempted to do othei w nm the convention would nave set upon hun vigorously. Another resolution protested against the desecration of Decoration Day by baseball clubs and organizations that seem to regard it as a day of pleasure and sport, the encampment assorting that it was a day for mourning and for memorial services and not foi rejoicing. A third resolution protested against the violation of the law* that are intended to give veterans a preferanee for employment in the state and munk ijtal service. The question of the place for holding the next encampment was referred to th* council cf administration with power. Past Commander James S Frazier of New York installed the new ly elected officer*, and then the encampment, which has been one of the most successful in the history of the or-gani/alion, adjourned LAUGHLIN IN A RAGE Be Woman's Relief Corp*.
