This moruiug Parnell proceeded to theoiBcc, and with the assistance of a crowd of bis supporters, forced open the door and took possession. Tho police witnessed the affair, but did not interfere in any way. After he hud sue-ccedcd in re-capturing the office, P-irnell went to tbe window and addressed the crowd outside. doors bolted and daiiiied. To guard against any further attempt on tbe part of Mr. ParneU'a oppoueula to recapture the office no one was allowed to enter and the doors and windows were closely bolted and barred. Mr. Parnell was accompanied by the staff of editors be appointed yeeterday, and wUeo the office waB secured against intruders all couvcr-sation with outsiders was carrisd ou throoffb a key hole. When Mr, Parnell made the assault upon tho ufSo-e this morning ho, himself, was armad with a crow-bar which he used in forcing the front duor. In the afternoon Mr. Parnell started for Cork.

'The Xloyal I'aii*' I.a8t Klght-AttractloMfi for the Next Week. One of the best performances that has ever been given before a Look Haven audience tras tbe Opera House attraction last night. When people go to tbe theatre tbey liko lo fee! that they will get their money's worth and are uaturaliy reluctant ia patronizing that which ia now to them: If our people had known what was iu store for them there would not have btsen standing room in tho hall latit nigbt. Aa it was there was a fair sized audieuoe present, but when Mr. George C. Stalay comes this way next season with *'rho Royal Pass," as he has promised to do, he will teeaive hia just dues-a crowded house. Mr. Staley is the equal of any Gorman comedian wo have ever seen aud his dialect and Hinging are exoellent, Ae "Andreas Hoffer," a mountain guide and faithful friend, he displays wonderful power as an actor aud mimic. During the course of the play he sang some charming songs, of which *'My Heart's Delight" aud "Little Uoguo's Asleep" were ttio prime favorites. Mauuger Harry Doel Parker has surrounded his star with a Que oast of players and where all did so well it ia unnecessary to particularizo. Speoial moution, however, is due to "Loris'- tho sQpposed deaf mule; 'Hulda," a Peasant girl; little **LouiBe" and ''Jarranitz," agent of the Russian secret service. The play is of a high order of literary merit, abounding in startling situations, tender pathos and breezy comedy. AH with whom wo have conversed sinod the play prouuunoe it the bit of the season. Tlie company left for Milton this morning. TO-MOniiQW night's suow. Of the performance of Ada Ray's specialty company to-morrow night an exchange saya: "It was a surpriao to those who bad expected that its only merit would lie iu its spectacular qualities. Tuo specialties were exoellent, uud the Mitchell sisters in their musical act captured the houae. The performances on the trapeze and ou the aerial ladder were skillful and daring. The singing was good and the costumes elegant, and should the company returu it will be greeted by a crowded house," MOSDAT Nir.iiT'a snow. Famous Yankee Moore, supported by a specialty selected aompauy of twouty-cwo artists, including Moore's celebrated Dude Band and Prof. Conway's Imperial Operatic Orchestra, appears Monday evening, Ddo. 15, in the Opera House as "Old Jonathan Coburg" iu tbn new aud suecessfnl Yankee comedy drama of the same name. Among Mr. Moore's supfort this season must be especially noticed pretty and clever Bello Vivian and Jennie Schuman, "the vital .spark." All the latest musio, dances aud refined specialties are introduced throughout tbe comedy. Positively nothing to offend tho most fastidious. The roost novel street pirade of the season att 12 o'clock noon. "guimes' cellar dook." Tha above will be tho attraction at the Opora House next Friday night. Josh Bdliugssays: "Fan is the oheapest aud best mediseu." So if you wish a good, strong, palatable dose boo "Grimea' Collar Door," with that bright youwg comedian, James B. 3Iaokie, as "Billy Grimes,'' and tbe ohances are you will laugh as you never laughed before.

The accused were lalcen before Alderman Allen, who held a preliminary Ucariog. The testimony before the coroner's jury was repeated. Dr. Bullock, tbe ooroaer, presented the only new testimony giTea. He oifered in evidence a striped calico shitt, which bad on its back, sleeves and front a few well defined blood spots.whioh in his opinion were arterial blood, and were from a spray. The shirt was found in a child's crib, and it is claimed that it was worn by Schmidt on the evening of the tragedy. A pair of euBpeoders, which had been taken off Schmidt, bad blood on them, but tbe spray was not so well defined: Theywere also offered. Tbe cross-examination tended to disprove the possibility of arterial blood, but Coroner Bullock stuck close to bis testimony during the examination iu chief. Upon the close of tbe testimooy tba prisoners were oomniited to tbe eounty jail without bail. VASBIMOTOS'S GREAT WHEAT CROP. BURGLARS CDAIHCO TOGETBEB.

Tbo great Pulitzer building in New York, the home of the W>rW, was formally opened Wednesday night with a full dress reception, which wa attended by distinguished gentlemen from all parts of tbe ceuutry. Among them were Senators, Goveruora, Goveroois-elcct, Congressmen aud editors of wide repute.

They Kob a 8ture at EmparlntD and Cap-tared at irilkwbarra. There was a pitiable sight at tha Pennsylvania railroad station on Thursday afternoon, says tbe Sunbury Z/aiVy. Niagara Express came, in on time, but tbe train on tbe Sunbury division from WilkeBt>arre was late. It arrived, however, a few minutes after Niagara and passengers for the north made a rush for tbe train as tbe Wilkesbarre train stopped above tbe water plug. The crowd of passengers were beaded by a strange looking party, there were three young men hand-cufled together and fastened with a chain. The bead couple had but a short chain separating cbem, bat tbe third man was attiobed with fully tl,ree feet of heavy ohain to the front couple. Tho two were young men of rather good looks, about about twenty-one yeara of age. The third was a mere lad of fourteen summers. A blue coated officer bad them in charge and walked behind watching them closely. When they attempted to get in the train Iheiy jammed in the door so closely that their chains and band-cuffs drew them together. the officer's 8t0by. "There is no doubt of their guilt," said the officer, "we captured tbe right parties. Here are some of tbe traps stolen by tbem. Tbey robbed a large store at Emporium about two weeks ago; they were a smart crowd; tbey put that small boy over the transom of the door and b� unlocked it from the inside; the man lived npataira but they succeeded in getting tbrongh without awakening him. In an hour tbey got away with tOOO worth of silka and fine goods. They gave us tba slip, bat we had a description of tha goods stolen sent out and soon we heard of the chape at Wilkesbarre selling Ibese goods. I went on and the Wilkesbarre police bagged them. Their names are| Sookett, Ikel and Boarduer. Tbey take tbeir arrest food naturedly, but I pity the young one." The officer with the three chained prison-era ereated quite a sensation at the defot. The Crop Emtlmateil at Twentj-Fiva MlUlun Buihels. A Seattle, Wash., despatch says: Returns from the great grain reglooa of Washington show an astoninhing prodnot this year. From the beet sootcea it it learned that the yield will not be leas than 25,000,000 bushala. This (ur u State so new is very sarprisiug. The largest yield of Califoruia, with more than tea times aa much soil devoted to whaai, waa 67,000,000, but since that time the Boll baa grown lesi and less adapted to wb�at,aDtiI now it does not aiverage mure than fifteen or eighteen busbels to the aora Waabioc-lou's yield is all tbe more atrikinf when that of last year-only about.3,000,000 bauheU-is ounttasted with it, 'I'bia yaar, however, a very large uta of new soil was brought under oalti-vatioo and sown to wheat It Is estimated that Whitmau oonnty, with only oue-fourtU of ita area devoted to wheat, bad produced 8,000,000 boah-els, tbe region south of Snake river to tha Oregon line 7,000,000, tbe i Big Bend and CulFille regions 2,000,000^ and various other sections of the State enough more to make the 33,000,000. Tbe yield of oaU ia about 3,000,000 bushels, and of barley about 4,500,000 bushels. The granaries of Bastern Waahingtoa are liberally barti-iug. There is not room in them for a tenth part of tbe wheat. For montbs it has beau piled many feet high in sacks ia the fields, and at the railway stations, while the rolling stock of all the railways was inadequate to take itaway. Bat even if the wheat bad been brought to tide water to Puget Sound, or Boated dowa tKo Columbia, aa some of it niight haVa been, on barges, but little of it could have been carried away, owing to many vessels being delayed with cargoes in Australia, owing to tha coal miners' strike there. It might bare been stored at tidewater, however, and tbe farmers paid some money ou it. 'As it is, the; cannot get any money, and because of tbe diliicaUy of getting oars tbe farmers are indignant. It will take till July next to move the crop, and ii U by no meana certain that it will all be oat by that time. A oar holds 330 bushels, and to transport the wheat of Wtiitman sona-ty alone will require 24,213 cars^ Bati-mating eighteen cara to a train,. it will require 1,347 separate railroad traioi to transport tbe wheat of a single ooanty. The officials of the Union Paoifio K.>U�rsy say there is eaougb grain along tbeir road in Eastern Washington to keep all tbair available cara basy for more tbin a year, or tillJanuary, 1892. . H Dissatisfaction at the lack of oars furnished by the raiiroada is growing apaoe. One day's reqaiaitions on theSpokane and Palonse railroad was for 200 cars, and all tbey could get was seventeen. The aTCt-age amoant of wheat per acre is abont forty bushels. There are scores of iostan-oes where farms of 200 or 300 acres eaoh have averaged 50 and 09 baahels. Frank Hill, of Pullman, had 45 acres wbieh yielded 66 baahels and 4 puaads per aoia. �. Branley.of Palouse, baa 40 acres treiag. * ing 72 bushels. K.Carberry, of Waterfille, in the Big Bend coantty, harvested an avi eraga of 77 bushels from six acres,-and 88 bushels from another acre. S. Butuhin-son, of Adams ooanty, produced bash-ele an acre on 30 acres. Many other instances of an astouishing yield might be cited, but tbe sensation amoag- wbast growers was caused this year wtaen �. J, Nottbcut produced on his farm near Pall-man 101 bushels on a single acre. This la tbe triumph of Washington wheat raisers. These instances of a great yield sound so large that chey are scarcely creditable, yet they are well auththentioated. Samples of these yields were recently exhibited at tbe Northwestern Expoeitios, bald at Spokane Falls. A DISASTBOCS WRECK. Several aicn Hurt bj a Smaafaop oa tbe Jersey Central. Bbthleqeu, Dec. 11.-The Scranton f^st freight, du the Jersey Central railroad, was wrecked this morning near bore, by a piece of lumber which fell from a passing train. The ooglue was hurled over an embankment and totally wreaked. William Prinkor, brakeman, and Warren Kist, fireman, were seriously injured. They escaped death by jumping into the canal. Brakemnn Thornton, with a broken leg, crawled ahead of tbe wreck and flagged an approaching train, preventing another smasbup. Tbe loss is over iio.ooo. Post Ho Bills. The Baptist church people have placed the familiar signs "post no bills" on the electric light poles iu front of their church and intend if poGSi')le to prevent any bil.'s being posttid there in the future. The last featber which broke tbe oamel'a back in this instance was the Ada Bayoomp^* lithographs. reoDSjJvanIa Town* That Have Bsen Asleep The census tells about some towns that have been sleeping. Gettysburg, Holli-dayabarg, Lewiaburg, liSwiatown, Maask Chunk, Meadville, MinersTille, Pottsvilla, Tamaqua, Titusvilie and Uniontown art among them, with Bloomsburg and Carlisle not veiy wide awake.
