Y, Peace Organ I rat Ions and Religion* Amelet lea Iii England Ctmraot r t Ire Him cs a Gigantic Laud Grabber—A Protest Against the Influx of Koretgu Labor. Other foreign Notes. London, May ‘J6 —Penton*- of a peaceable turn of mind, who have a weak *(>ot la their heart* for arbitration, disarmament and other uou warlike ach.-me*. have had much to grieve them lately. In the brat place .Mr. Stanley, who ba* been a sort of pet of these gentry, baa astounded them by sueeriug at them in pubic aa old gran Dies and fool*. Nothing could he more cynical or more cruel than the explorer’s sudden aud candid declaration of coutampt for the peace contingent Heretofore he baa always allowed himself to be lauded ho the skies as the pioneer of civilization and Christianity, the opetier-up of com merer, the deliverer of the black* from tho bondage of ignorance, the friend of the missionary, etc.; bul now he throws off the mask aud stands revealed aa the gigantic laud grabber, pure aud simple: the aeq Hirer of territory, by peaceable method- if possible, but if not thou by force At least the religious sot istle* sud peace organisations ouch of them a* have re covered their breath aine* Stanley’s receut speech—are now sayiug these things ibout him. They have also found little comfort in the political happening of the week Every nation is increasing Its armament eveu lit tie Denmark ha* felt compelled to show that she can buy guus just like her big neigh bors, aud she has bought her full proportion at least, namely, eeventeeu 40 calibre steel guns and tweuty four long rauge pieces of somewhat less capacity. At home thiugs do not look much brighter for those who anticipate the day of universal brotherhood. Hight Hon Ed ward Stanhope, secretary of state for war, in a speech Saturday night *tated that the government was giving very close attention to England’s coast defenses, which it proposed to greatly improve, and in fact to perfect. Defeuae is not exactly war, but it implies war, and the seers tary’s remark* make it clear that no de I union* as to the po**! bilify of disarmament prevail among tin*** who are responsible for the safety of the country. All of which is doubtless regretted by many pee pie besides the *‘pea«*e crauks.” A PROTEST AGAINST fnltKK.N LABOR. ^Qlfre was a mass meeting in the Kaat End yesterday to protest against the influx of foreign labor. A monster urns* meeting for the same purpose is arranged to take place iu Hyde park next Sunday. The half-starved, uuemployod, ignorant of the subtleties of political economies know only that there are more men than jobs, and knowing of no way to increase the mini lier of jobs, they seek to limit the auntlier of men. Malthus still holds his own with the unenlightened, though the learned place him on the shelf. WILL OPPOSE THE LAND PL'RI HASE BILL The Nationalists are plauuing to opp*we the laud purchase bill tooth aud uail, de spite the government’s constant applica lion of closure There are many tricks of filibustering which even closure cauuot wholly prevent. The government, how ever, lias hinted that if the op|*ositiou ia maintained, the sittings will be continued uutil Hiltonia—a portentous threat to those who know the discomfort* of all-summer session*. A young girl named Hunter was found dead Saturday morning uear Alteuberg, aud the body had iwen mutilated aa were those of “Jack the Kipper's*1 victims. There i* great excitement iu the neighborhood. AS A POH Hi Y TO MINISTER REID. A special dispatch from Paris nays:    In the lase of the American lawyer from Georgia who, with his comrades, was cl ii bl »ed by a policeman on the uight of May I, the foreign office lias forwarded to Minister Reid a polite apology from M. (’on*!mum. the minister of the interior, to gether with an explanation of the diffi cullies encountered by the police ou that evening The Americans fulled to take the mtmiier of the offending policeman and were unable to blentify him, but they are satisfied with the apology received. AMERICAN ART BTL DRIFTS. The American art students in Paris met together for the formal opening of their club house on the Boulevard Mont par uasse The club house includes reading rooms, a library, reception rooms, a res tauraut, gardens for out-door painting, etc. Mr. Reid, the United States Minister, made a brief o|teuiug address, after which M. (ierome and the Marquis de Kocham-t >ea ii spoke The speech making was followed by student*' songs aud recitations by a number of young American tallies. Five hundred art students were present. SATISFIED WITH THE TARIFF BILL. iSatinfliction is generally expressed in Paris at the successful passage through the house of representatives of the free art clause iu the tariff bill, but some of the newspaper* complain of the high protective character of the bill generally. In the meantime Mr. Mcliue’s committee in the chandler of deputies is maturing plaus for a general system of protective duties on French manufactures aud agricultural product* The agricultural interests are e*|iecialiy clamorous for protection, aud ale making their powerful influence* felt iu the chamber. THE UNIVERSITY OF MONTPELIER. The celebration of the sixth century of the University of Montpelier at Paris was made the occasion for great fetes There was a large gathering of men interested in education from all quarters. Daniel C. Gilltnan, president of Johns Hopkins uni *erisity of Baltimore, and several other prominent American educators were present. The celebration was the nominal iHx-asiou for the present tour of President I‘arnut, which appear* to arouse eveu greater public interest I ban his visit South A notable feature of hi* reception is that the Catholic clergy, heretofore largely royalist or imperialist, are now tsking part clSgjutlly iu the courtesies extended to the head of the state. They have hitherto opposed the government bitterly ou account of its secularization of the schools. NEW TIPPERARY. A Meeting to Celebrate the Sunni of the New Sett lenient. iiONDON, May ‘JtV- The meeting at New Tippers.'? to celebrate the success of the new settlement was held yesterday in despite of Hie government’s prohibition.

Mr. O’Brien’s attitude undoubtedly secured the peace hit outcome of the affair, aa the people took their cue from him implicitly. They resisted just enough to compel the police to use force aud many heads were bruised, but no one was seriously injured so fsr ss reported Troop* were held in readiness throughout the day to a*aUt the police if necessary, but their services were not called into requisition.

Washington, May 26—The end of the silver debate in the senate rn not yet In sight. An effort will be made to clos# it by the time the tariff bill is ready to rw port to the senate from the tinauce com mitt##, but ti.at is a poi ut for the Indefi nit# future. No re<-ent effort ba* been made to bring about a Republican caucus on the silver question, but otic will be held liefore the eud of this week and when called it will determine the time for clue ing the detente. Mr. Pugh will addr#** the senate to-day on the silver bill. It bae been agreed that this measure will be laid aside, however, on Tuesday so that the liquor bill, which I* fathered by Mr Wilson of Iowa. may be discussed. The liquor bill will be debated uutil a full vote on it in assured The committee on appropriations expects to get the legislative aud fort!flea lion* appropriations bills before the senate during the week and possibly the diplomatic bill. Any oue of the** may lie called up w lien the liquor bill is out of the way. Mr Sherman ami Mr. Aldrich are down for *|n-eche* ou the silver bill, aud if the liquor lull is disposed of iii time and the appropriations bill doe* not interfere they will deliver them during the latter part of the week. It is likely that the caleudar w ill not be considered on Sat iir day. General busine** of an Important nature is pressing too hard. No program of biiHiuesa for the house has Ia**n determined on by the Republican leaders, aud the matter will rest with the committee ou rules, which will probably bring in a resolution setting apart certain days during the week for the consideration of specified measures. To day will lie District of Columbia day and the Columbus national park bill will lie discussed further aud praimbly placed on its passage lf the day is not entirely consumed by District business the discus sit.ii of the river and harbor bill will be concluded on that day aud it* passage moved. If there is not time then th« bill will lo* finished ou the following day. It wa* the intention of the elections committee to have the contested case of Mc Duffie. Republican, against Turpin, Democrat, from Alabama, passed upon, but it will probably I** |m**I polled for a week. It is probable that conference report* on several bills w ill lo* cal lest up for considera Lion ami debate. THE TARIFF BILL. The s«* ii »l »• FI ii Mile* Committee Besieged by YI an ii fact ii rem anil Importer#. Washington, May 26.—The member* of the senate committee on finance are be ing lo-sieged by manufacturer* and im-iMirters who wish them to give hearings in regard to clauses in the tariff bill. At the urgent request of Senator McMillan, a hearing was given to the fiue-cut tobacco men last Thursday. Au effort to keep (lie matter secret wa* unsuccessful, and now the committee is experiencing some difficulty dodging importunate agents of thedifferrnt manufacturing interest*. A number of amendments to the bill were agreed toby the ways and means committee at the last moment, which Mr. Mc Kinley had no opportunity to present to the house liefore the hour fixed for voting on the bill arrived. The men who represent the interests which would la* affected by these amendments feel that they have a claim upon the finance committee now, and it is very difficult to refuse them a hearing. But, unfortunately, a* Mr. Aldrich, a memlier of the committee, says, tiles* tactics have tiecouie know u to others who have amendments which they desire to see adopted, and now every man who applia* to the -ommittee for a hearing asserts that his particular claim has received the sanction of Mr. McKinley. These assurances are a*comiug -o general now that the mein-lo-re of the committee are beginning to look uj**11 them with suspicion and, a* a result, a great many worthy applicants for hearings may have nome slight injustice done them. The committee will give very few hearings before reporting the bill.   _    _    ^ Tramp* Set Fir* to a Town. Albuquerque. N M., May 26.—A disas •roils fire set by traiii|>s ha* destroyed every house in the city of Coolidge, N.

For three lays they had held control of the town. Tribute was levied ou the stores, the demauds being emphasized by a show of wea|Kins. Finally the residents were (riven to wage war iu self defense. Their resistance enraged the tramps and iu ratatat iou inflammables were scattered about the houses and set on fire. Before the ishe* of the town were cool a posse of ctt-zetis on horse back were in pursuit of the • re tups, and ly neb! aga are prolmble. The cader of the tramp* is believed to be Black Ruhi, a half-breed of hard character.    __ A Front-Knd Collision.
