Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1890, Olean, New York 1 "TO LwW f The Olean Democrat VOL. OLEAN, CATTARAUG'JS CO.' NEW YORK, THURSDAY, JULY 17, 1890. r V i OPC n j.1 UNIVERSAL IN LONDON. r c Lo. PEACE NO. 34 KILLED ON THE RAIL. Collision DAVID He I'p the Vnllod as a 3IocU-l of i'c.-ice and Truth in Report of Mr. Gladstone's Theatre Destroyed by Fire. Eus-iia Agitated Over an Alleged State- ment by the King of Sweden. fatally seriously July address delivered by David Dudley Field at the opening of the universal peace congress yesterday created sen-ation, bo'th in re- spect to or' the speaker and the matter of uis speech. Mr. Field cited the Lnited Stains as a most conspicuous ex- ample of Rfv.ci-c'ten powers living together IH "u and harmony and aseribed their amicable relations to the principle o' arbitration vested in the gen- eral aud so universally ac- cepted us to reader resort to it most infre- quent. ILj re-gar Jed the modern willing- ness of powers to submit their disputes to arbitration as one of the hopeful signs of an era of peace. He honored the wisdom which had directed the settlement of the African dispute between England and Germany, a settlement which had set an example for the world. During the cen- tury, he said, 16 shillings of each ponnd sterling of national debt throughout the civilized world had been expended in the maintenance of armies and the prosecu- tion of wars. A SENSATIONAL RUMOB DENIED. A report was in circulation yesterday that Mr. Gladstone was ill, and his ab- sence from the sitting of the procedure committee lent to it a strong semblance of truth. On the strength of the rumor hundreds of reporters and friends called at Mr. Gladstone's residence to obtain in- formation as to his condition and express their sympathy. Mr. Gladstone's appear- ance in his usual good health and spirits attested the falsity of the report, and the callers retired satisfied and pleased that they had been mildly hoaxed. The Italian government is engaged in devising new and elaborate plans of mobilizatien of its land forces, a move- ment which is strikingly at variance with the very recent assurances by Premier Crispi of the gratifying outlook for pro- longed peace. A TERRIBLE CATASTROPHE AVERTED. As the audience was assembling at the IHusionist theatre in Rome Sunday even- ing the building suddenly took fire. The people who had entered the theatre beat a hasty retreat and drove back those who were attempting to enter. The fire brigade were powerless to check the flames and the structure -was rapidly burned to the ground. Fortunately no one was injured, but had the fire occurred an hour later frightful loss of life must have resulted. WOULD FIGHT FOR GERMANY. Considerable feeling is aroused in St. Petersburg by the statement, ascribed to the King of Sweden, that, while in the event of a war between Germany and any other power he would remain neutral as long as possible, he would fight, if com- pelled to take part, on the side of Ger- many. This is rejja.-rleu as. a declaration of hostility toward whom the Swedes have never forgiven for the annex- ation of Finland. THE VEXED BULGARIAN QUESTION. The Rnssian newspapers indicate a con- viction that nothing short of war can set- tle the Luli.virian question satisfactorily to Russia. The temper of the Bulgarians is war-like it is irore than doubtful that they would be willing to accept any prince whom the powers should agree to place over them. Yet ranch importance is attached to the encounters between Turks and Montene- groes. near the Montenegrin frontier. The people of the two nations on the borders have for a lonsi time bPen quarreling over some pasture land, the ownership of which is disputed, and the quarrel has more than once oven rise to bloodshed.

It is Said to Have Ruined a Warsaw Man. WARSAW, N. Y., July W. Brown has gone fishing. He kept a five- table billiard saloon here in connection with a tobacco store. Recently he was ia Buffalo. On his return at naon yesterday he left a note with his boy to give his wife and disappeared. The note stated that he was going to New York, and would net be back, and to tell "the boys" to take charge of the room. They did so, and it was closed yesterday afternoon. The boys referred to are Frank and Charles Craine, his brothers-in-law, who hold chattels for and re- spectively. There are unpaid tobacco ac- counts for some The room was bought of C. T. Watkins for and is worth about now in its run-down condition. There are other debts against the young man. Town gossips claim that the festive poker check and the attractive female have played an important factor in the case, but these assertions lack substantia- tion. Brown is a rugged, matter-of-fact fellow of 35 years. Over Thirty are Said to t. j Seriously Ilral.emsui Klowu to Enormous Destruction to Number of Workmen's Cottages ISadly Shatteied Station and Freight House Uuriied.

UTICA, N, Y., July yesterday morning the streets ou the line of march of Maennerchor parade began to fill up wi'h citizens and visitors from sur- rounding towns and cities. The day opened with heavy threatening clouds and the atmosphere was very oppressive.

Thirty-six organizations participated in the parade and were headed by a platoon of police, followed by Grand Marshal John Kohler and Chief of Staff George Zimmer and a mounted staff of twenty- four men.

Still another indictment was opened against Mr. O'Reilly, charging him with unlaw- fully receiving a communication addressed to the grand jury. Their arrests are the results of the alleged attempt oa the part of Schooley and others to influence the grand jury to change its vote in the Lynch-Stoddard shooting case. Mr. O'Reilly gave bail on each indict- ment, and Mr. Koehler's bail was fixed at the same amount. Of Interest to Naval Ship Builders. BOSTON, July The series of govern- ment tests to determine the strength and other qualities of alumnium bronze was begun yesterday at the Watertown arsenal. The results will be of importance to naval ship builders. The tests showed the tensile strength of the metal to be over 90.000 pounds to the squara inch, a higher point than ever before reached. The transverse strength developed in a one-inch square bar was 6.600 pounds, greater than that of any other metal ex- cept the finest quality of crucible steel. The other qualities of metal will be tested to-day. Badlr Bnrned by an Explosion. ROCHESTER, X. Y., July about 4 p. m. yesterday as Frank Dowd of Medina was repairing an cil stove at the residence of L. Adlar at that village, it dropped i from his hands to the floor, exr-loded, and set fire to the house. The flames nearly destroyed the house, and commu- nicating to an dwelling in the same lot partially destroyed it. The loss on both buildings and contents is about -i'S.OOO: insured. Dowd was badly burned about the face fay the explosion of the oil stove. The of the Silver dent Harrison Has ai Kffect in Monetary Characterizes Peace Congress as a Guthering riiilantliropist-j. LOXDOV. July signing of the silver bill by President Harrison, although it was looked upon as a foregone conclu- sion, had a very stimulating effect upon prices, on the Stor-k Exchange. Bar silver was of course first to feel the influence of the confirmation of the sil- ver legislation of congress and at once rose to 50 pence an ounce, a selling price it has not attained for several years. Amer- ican also took on a degree of sympathetic activity, and increased orders to buy were cabled to New York. The in- crease in th'j of silver is by no means to be as permanent, however. The practical effect of the new American silver law has. been pretty thoroughly dis- counted and the opinion is general that the present activity in bullion will not con tinue long and that the price will grad- ually recede to a point little if any above the figures which have ruled for the last year. SNEERS AT THE PEACE CONGRESS. The St. James Gazette sneers at the peace congress, which it regards as a fathering of fossilized philanthropists whose ideas are as impracticable as they are obsolete. While Mr. Field and his fellow reformers are endeavoring to beat swords into plowshares, it would be well for them to take cognizance of the potent fact that the hostile tariff bill now under consideration in the American congress typifies a barbarous form of war, in that it assails not armies, but homes. XOISY SALVATIONISTS. The Salvationists are in full cry at the Crystal palace, where the army, strong, is assembled. The exercises are of a most fervid and demonstrative char- acter and as noisy as they can well be. Bands of music, playing the airs which the army has made exclusively its own, are in almost unceasing action and the "knee drills" and other evolutions pecu- liar to the militant evangelical organiza- tion are scarcely less prolific of sounds unwelcome to the ear. ELECTRIC CABS IN STUTTGART. A system of electric cabs has been in- troduced in Stuttgart with a degree of success that promises the permanent rele- gation of the cab horse together fields of usefulness. The new vehicles are already popular, though at present their novelty has much to do with the patronage they receive. At Palermo yesterday an aeronaut fell from a balloon and struck the ground, where he lay mangled and bleeding until taken to the hospital to die. JuIiiUAXDS THOROUGHLY ORGANIZED. It may interest Americans to know that, according to the developments of a recent race of brigandage in Italy, Italian brigands are so thoroughly organized that, should a member of one of the bands prove unfaithful, he v.-ould be followed even to America and pur to death. Senor Arrigo. who a short time ago was carried off by brigands and ransomed for 100.000 francs, states that while under guard in a grotto, he suggested to the brigand left in am, _v 1 t.v.M i t-i ill by fo!

July Nothing the history of this village has ever created such indignation as wasaroused Saturday when it became known that parties fram a neighboring town were about to estab- lish at this place an "original package" saloon. Monday evening the people as- semble-! en masse to express their indig- nation air! demand an abandonment of the attempt. Stirring speeches were made and resolu- tions adopted declaring that it shall unlawful to intoxicating liquors of any kind in Leland, and any person vio- lating this ordinance shall be tarred- feathered and cowhided ont of tlae vjljage.

July A man giving the name of Tom Collins arrived here Saturday with two horses and a buggy, which he attempted to sell, but without success. Monday he left town, and later Deputy Sheriff Charles Howard received information from the sheriff that the horses were stolen property, and in- structing him to arrest the thief. Howard overtook CslHns three miles from here and ordered him to surrender. Collins ran and Howard shot him im the ankle. Collins then emptied his shotgun into Howard's breast, inflictiag a fatal wound. Howard Collins down and handcuffed him, an-i then fainted from loss of blood. A farmer brougnt both men to town.
