Cries of "Do^n with Britain" and Sign* That the Celebration of 1798 Next Tear May Give John Bull More Trouble Tlimn a Fotato Famine — Anti-Tax Klot in Borne—Rioter Killed and Policemen Injured—Troops Fire on the Slob. Dublin, Oct. 12.—The first general national convention of the Irish Independent League, organi2ed by John Redmond,:.!. P., the Parnellite leader, opened yesterday afternoon in the Ancient concert rooms here. Eight hundred enthusiastic delegates packed the hall and actively participated in cheering vociferously every point in the speeches which met with their approval, and in jeering the names of Dillon, Healy and Davltt. as well as hissing the names of Gladstone, when Redmond characterized him as "the Englishman who letrayed Ireland." Every reference to the struggle of 1798 was greeted uproariously, particularly Redmond's reading of the path taken by the revolutionists. All the speeches paid tribute to the patriotism of the late Charles Stewart Parnell, and warm cheers greeted the 'entrance of the Redmonds, John Parnell /and Patrick O'Brien into the hall. Cries of "Down witli Britain." The delegates thereupon climbed upon their seats and shouted: "Down with Britain." The meeting had up to that point been of a somewhat mild description, but much denunciation of England and talk of 179S followed, Kelly, of Manchester, for instance, saying that Ireland -would have her jubilee in 1S28 "over the attempt of honest men to do honest work for Ireland." There was also much denunciation of Great Britain's proposal to give Ireland a Roman Catholic university. The participation of the priests in polities was condemntd and the Healyites were denounced as "The assassins of Parnell." There was, however, no discord whatever: the resolutions were all adopted with enthusiasm, and the reading of a telegram from he Irish Independent League of New York was heartily cheered. Kedinoml Makes a Lou;; Speech. Among the members of the executive ommittee on the platform was Louis Stuyvesant Chanler, of New York. Alderman John Reilly read a telegram rom the independent Irishmen of Boson, Mass., which said: "We stand by 'arnell'a nolicy and urge the government to disgorge its plunder in the face if the distress existing, and we send 100 as evidence of our good faith." The reading of this message was fol- owed by three cheers for the stars and tripes. Redmond in a long speech denounced he Liberals for abandoning home rule, and declared- that the only hope of reland was in independent action, with- >ut any alliance with the English par- ies, explaining . that the Dillonites vanted an "emasculated system of fed- ration, a sort of glorified vestry, in- >i:ead.of a free parliament." American Citizen Does Some Talking-. Resolutions were adopted urging the rish everywhere to commemorate the centennary of 179S. denouncing the government for repudiating the report of the royal commission on the flnanc.'al relations between Great Britain and Ireland, and demanding the release of :he dynamiters now in British prisons. Chanler, who was called upon to address the convention, made a ringing speech, asserting that the Irish would Tever achieve home rule until they were united, and expressing the opinion that they had not allied themselves with the Tories or the Liberals "because both the English government and Englishmen are never just and never do a ;enerous act unless forced to do it by fear." FATAL RIOTIJfG IN KOME. Taxation Angers the Populace and Police and People Have a Fight- Rome, Oct. 12.—A large procession of tradesmen, headed by the pro-syndic of Rome and the president of the Chamber if Commerce, marched to the office of the minister of the interior yesterday afternoon to protest against and confer with the government regarding the increased taxation. Premier Rudini, who is also minister of the interior, received committee representing the tradesmen and promised that all possible would be done to promote friendly relations and greater equity between the tax collectors and taxpayers. In the meanwhile a large crowd of people had collected around the ministry, angry shouts were heard and some of those present tore up paving stones and otherwise assumed a threatening attitude. This caused the police to make an attempt to disperse the violent portion of the crowd, and in the conflict which followed six policemen were injured and That's what you'll get if I make your clothes.

Some of the soldiers fired in the direction of the crowd and the streets were only cleared after a severe struggle, a second resort ta fire arms becoming necessary to dislodge a particularly determined group. It is believed that nearly forty were more or less severely injured. TALKING iN THE LUETGERT CASE. Small Amotmt of Sur-Rebuttal Evldeno* Offered :uid Arguments Begun. Chicago, Oct. 12.—Tie defense in tht Luet.ge.Tt case closed its sur-rebuttal in an hour yesterday, except a few witnesses it reserved the right to introduce later. Several business men rehabilitated the reputation of William Charles for truth and integrity, which had been impeached by men to whom he is in debt or has been. Two other witnesses swore there were hundreds of pounds of grease in the factory on May 1; another sworf. that Odorofsky had testified to Justice Kersten that he was not in the factory on May 1. Odorofsky explained that when he testified by saying that he could not properly understand the Kersten examination because it was in German instead of Polish. He knew enough of Germac, however, to get along with Luetgert, who cannot talk Polish. The last witness and probably the most Important was not permitted to testify by the court. Mrs. Feldt had sworn that Mrs. Charles wanted her to swear the rings found in the vat were not Mrs. Luetgert's. Mrs. Cha.rl«s had denied this. On cross- examination the defense asked Mrs. Feldt several questions evidently intended for impeachment purposes on sur-rebuttal. By the witness Introduced yesterday the defense proposed to prove that Mrs. Feldt had sworn falsely regarding these facts, and the judge ruled the testimony out. McEwen began thf> argument for the state and occupied the balance of the flay. FATAL TROLLEY CAR DISASTER. One Person Killed. One Mortally Hart and Fourteen Injured.

Baltimore Wins the Temple Cup from tb« Pennant Winners. Baltimore, Oct. 12.—The Temple cup will stay in Baltimore another year. It has been won twice in succession for the first time in its history, and if the Orioles take it again it is theirs absolutely. The former champions also take GO per cent, of the money paid sit the gates during the three games in Boston and the two played here, while the winners of the pennant will .get but 40 per cent., unless—as is generally believed —the players have agreed among themselves to divide the spoils equally. Yesterday's game, like all the others of the series save the first one, was an easy proposition for the Baltimoreans, who won much as they pleased, by the score of 9 to 3. Fighting a Railway Consolidation. Detroit, Oct. 12.—Corporation Counsel Flowers yesterday on behalf of the city began suit in the county court to have the consolidation of the Detroit and Fort Wayne and Belle Isle street railways (3-cent fare lines) with the Detroit Citizens' street railway declared invalid. The bill of complaint asserts that the franchise of the Detroit railway, granted in 1S94, expressly stipulated that it should not consolidate with the old companies. Condition of the Corn Crop.

A special detail of police was patroling the district that was the scene of the disturbance. In all there were twenty- four arrests.

Other Xecensary I>r«>cautions Ignored B«- eaune They Are Irksome, Consequently the Plague Will Go oa Claiming Its Victims Daily Until Jack Frost Kill* th« Germs—Crescent City Feels Hurt at Gal- regton—Daily Death Record. New Orleans, Oct. 12.—From the returns there is little hope in the yellow fever situation. The board of health is daily demonstrating that with a fair show it is possible for modern science to restrict and stamp out the disease. But the people who must suffer from a strict application of scientific methods rebel, the result being that the pathway of the board of health is beset with difficulties. If there was strict compliance with the health lays, if prompt report was made of cases the fever germs •would quickly be wiped out. But it begins to look now as if from thirty to forty cases and from four to six deaths will be daily reported until Jack Frost puts in an appearance. Yesterday, as on nearly every day since the fever first appeared here, about 50 per cent, of the fatalities was traceable to neglect and a disposition to hide cases until it. was; too late to do anything to save life. Cane Tha<; I» One in Polnt Thft case of Robert Hi,te was reported yesterday. He had been ill some time. People in the vicinity of where he liv°d knew he was ill. Yet no report was made to the health authorities and the announcement of the Hite case was al- rr.ost contemporaneous with his death. The most important feature of the news as to the new cases was the fact that four people were found to have been stricken at the Jewish home, a well known local charitable Institution. The officials of Touro infirmary agreed to receive the cases and they were at once taken to that hospital, which is largely supported by the Hebrew population, although non-sectarian, Grievance Against Galveston. At the board of health office there is bitter criticism of Galveston, Tex., and the Texas health authorities for their failure to send a line regarding the sit- ation in that city. When suspicious ases were reported here the Louisiana oard of health at once telegraphed the act to all the leading health, boards of he country, and the result was gf-n- ral quarantine against' this city. Galeston was one of the first cities to aise the bars. Dr. Guiteras on Sa.tur- ay pronounced several cases of yellow ever as existing in Galvestoi, but not line has reached Dr. Olliphant rela- Ive-to these from the Texas health offi- ers. The only official information which Dr. Olliphant has received was from Surgeon General Wyman. VERY MILD CASE OF FEVEB "ound by a local Doctor at Galveston— Two Others That Are Suspicions. Galveston, Tex., Oct- 12.—Dr. C. W. Truehart, member of the advisory committee of the board of health, yesterday •eported to the health authorities that he had found a case of well-defined but •ery mild yellow fever. Dr. Edward Randall reported two cases in his prac- ice which he pronounced yellow fever. 3r. Truehart examined the.se cases and las pronounced them suspicious. The original cases are getting along nicely, and there has been no fatality. The infected houses are under quarantine uard and the city is being thoroughly disinfected. No passenger trains are be- ng run in or out of Galveston. Preparations have been made for fumigating he mails and sending them out of the i:y to trains and the postal authorities nave been wired for confirmation. San Antonio. Tex., Oct. 12.—The city ouncil yesterday passed a resolution .hrowing open the doors of San Antonio to yellow fever refugees from Galveston and other coast cities and invited citizens of those cities to come here during the prevalence of yellow fever at their homes.

Chicago, Oct. 12.—Methodist laymen apeared before the Rock River conference in the Western Avenu* church yesterday and advocated the passing of a resolution giving them the much-desired equal representation with the minister* In the general conference. A committee of five now has the important question in its hands, and will draw up a favorable resolution. The Western Avenu* church was crowded with lay members, and it is estimated that there were 20f persons there in addition to the members of the eonferer.ce. "There is not the least doubt that w« will win our point in the Rock River conference," said Judge Horton as he left the church after his speech and th« enthusiastic reception accorded him. "If the other conferences will act as thU one will layman will obtain their rights In the general conference of the Methodist church.

Alton, Ills., Oct. 12.—The race war In the Alton public schools broke out afresh yesterday morning.

The police were summoned smdejectod them, and school was he!4 the rest of the day with the police•• guarding the doors. The board of education will this week appoint a truant officer who will attempt to make the colored children attend the schools especially set *ipart for them. Serious trouble seems imminent, as the colored parents are peT- gistent in sending their children to tha schools set apart for the whites, in iv-hich no colored children are allowed.
