Y PARNELL FOUND GUILTY. The Jury Gives O'Shea Hia Divorce and ComlujmiB the Irish leader. LONDON, Nov. 18.—In the O'Shea divorce case the jury brought in a verdict in favor of the plaintiff, declar^ ing in effect that the respondent, Mrs. O'Shea, and the co-respondent, Parnell, are guilty of adultery, and exonerating the husband from the charge of connivance. The court igranted a decree of divorce, with costs, to the petitioner, and also awarded him the custody of the younger children. The Mercury says that Parnell'smost •trusted friends advised him not to go :into the witness-box. They argued -that what ruined Sir Charles Dilke was not so much the commission of adultery as the fact that he denied under oath what was aftorward proved. Parnell has behaved moro honorably in practically con tossing that in endeavoring to deny it he felt he could not meet the charge. The Daily Telegraph publishes Parnell's political obituary. It says he must cease for tho present, at least, to load the Nationalist party. It is reported that the followers of Mr. Par- noil do not desire him to retire unless by Uis own volition, in which event the leadership of the Irish party will be vested in a commission of which Mr. Justin McCarthy will bo president. Nutiouul \V. C. T. U. ATLANTA. Ga., Nov. 18.—The Woman's Christian Temperance Union at Monday's session dovoted the morning Lours to he. ing reports of the superintendents of different departments.

SECHETARY PROCTOR, A *frW»psU «f Ou Atiimftl Report or tfte . ' tVarklnga ot the Wnr Department. W\ft<itNnto^, Nov. 18.— Secretary of War Proctor has submitted his second aft- iiual report tbthel'residontshowing the condition r.nd noeda ot the department. While admitting that tho Government toas little to foar from invasion tho Sec- tectary says no great civilized nation hast moro j;m ctuiso to look well !o the Condition of its coast defenses. Under tho foriitlu lion act of last .session posi- tionn for t'.'My-oigbt mortars in three Brroups of sixteen each and for three of tho virnv long-range gun* will be pre- parod in Now York harbor; for one group of moi'Urs and 0110 gun in Boston bnruor, ami for one group of mortars and two guns at .San Francisco. Ho says: "1 trust, iiijit a flxnd policy may b« adopted in Kits lino ol' a rc.'tsonahln yoarly npi>n>i"'iatlon tor the completion of tho work on which the Nation Is bul just, entering. With such a policy manufacturers could safoly put In the nceossary plant and be able to furnish material at a chnaper rain. With an iimmal appropriation of SW.OOO.OJO to flO,U):i,0;>t).-only a little moro than that of the present year—the construction and emplacement ot nuns aud mortars, worUs of torpedo defense, for tho whole coast can be carried on, and in ten years our principal harbors and cities rendered reasonably secure. The Secretary calls attention to tho advisability of the three-battalion formation for infantry which already prevails in tfie other arms of the service. The number of desertions from the army for the twelve months ended September 30 wore 3,086, as against 2,751 for tho same period last year, a decrease of 34 per cent. This result is due to such improvements in tho service as could be accomplished under existing legislation. The number oi officers now awaiting retirement is about sixty. These men are performing no service whatever but receive full pay, while junior officers doing their duties for them are unjustly deprived of both the pay and the rank which the law intends to attach to tho positions they are filling. The incongruity of tho present law is illus\ .trated by the fact that where an officer Is disabled in the line of duty instead •of opening the way for the promotion of juniors it may and often does actually retard it. Regarding the National guard the Secretary says: "Bein? impressed with the importance of an •effective militia as a prominent and necessary •factor m any military organization suited to our country, tho department has endeavored by its •co-operation to encourage and aid tho Na- ••tional guard so far as possible under •existing law. Officers have been detailed to assist in their instruction, and detachments of regular troops have been ordered to participate in some of the larger S-.sito encampments. The department has endeavored to co-operate more especially with those States which have manifested the most 'interest in tho matter by their own liberal appropriations and earnest efforts. The results have been very satisfactory, its direct benefits are palpable, and its indirect influence perhaps even more important. "Any money which the National Government •expends for our citizen soldiery goes to help . those who help thnrnselTes. and is bound to give proportionately large returns. Under the present law there is annually appropriated for the benefit of the militia $400,000, while the individual States appropriate in the aggregate, so far as known, over $2.000,000, and in many States tho militia receive also a considerable support from local and private sources. If the appropriation of the general Government should be increased, and I wish it might be, I believe that it -would be generously met by a corresponding Increase by the •efficiency of the National Guard, and to bring them into closer relations with the War Department, and hope that measures to that end may receive favorable consideration of Congress. One of the most useful directions -which can be .given to the drill and training of the militia of •the seaboard States is in connection with voast defenses, where Its services are most likely to toe needed, if at all. In that particular training the general Government must do more tb«\n >ao-operato; it mast take the initiative." In order to obtain exact information concerning Alaska the Secretary has approved the organization of a systematic survey of that Territory and he recommends an appropriation by Congress for that purpose. The expenditures under Secretary Proctor's direction for the year ended June 30 were: Salaries, etc., $1,040,700; military establishment, $23,961,30'J: public works, $15,383,785; miscellaneous objects, $0,07:},960; total, $47,357,- fffiii. The total appropriations for the year ended J"une ao, isai. are $00,799,•695. The total estimates for the next fiscal year ending June 30, 1893, are 5Hii,- 709,93(5. OHIO'S REPRESENTATIVES.

The first-named companies left for Pine Kidge agency at 4 o'clock p. m. with a full complement of mules and wagons and will be provided with rations for fifteen days. The marching column will be in command of Major Butler. The troops at Port McKinney were also ordered out and left tor Douglas, Wyo., with Colonel Guy V. Henry in command. Themarch is about 135 miles. The troops at Forts Kiobrara and Robinson, which are not far from the scone of difficulty, will march at once. Telegrams poured into the army headquarters and into the newspaper offices Tuesday with bulletins about the Indian scare. At the army offices it was stoutly asserted that the Indians were only out on a hunt. Further it was said that two reliable Brule Indians now in the city reported to the army officers that there was no Messiah craze among tho Indians just north of the Nebraska line. Private advices from Valentine give a different origin than the "Messiah craze" to the Indian uneasiness. Since August the Indians of Rosebud have been restless, claiming that the agent was not giving them a square deal on supplies. MANDAN, N, D., Nov. 10.—Every house in town is full to overflowing with refugees from country districts. The most intense excitement prevails in the country. Settlers are prepared to believe any thipg about the Indians because of their queer actions lately. Several families came in Tuesday on foot a distance of twenty miles, being too poor to own wagons. In town somewhat less tension exists, owing to the receipt of 300 guns from the State Government and the fact that a company of soldiers will be here from Fort Totten. There are 200 Indians in the town armed, but citizens are armed, too, and patrols are out and people sleep with their clothes on. A date will be fixed by a committee of citizens, and Indian agents will be notified that after that date any Indian found in this county without a pass from the agent will be killed on sight. The population is thoroughly aroused, and although conservative men are doing their best to quiet the angry populace, there is every reason to believe that unless the Government takes immediate steps to increase the force of soldiers here and at Fort Lincoln every. Indian coming into the county will be killed. Nearly a hundred settlors came in Tuesday night from the west end of the county and are going to Bismarck for safety. At Glen Ullen, forty miles west, the citizens turned out Tuesday night en masse and threw up breastworks by moonlight for protection. A supply of rifles has been sent to each, settlement in the county. Telegrams are coming in constantly for suppfies of ammunition. . JAMKSTOWW, N. D., Nov. 19,—It is- learned here that the Messiah craze has struck the Indians at Fort Totten and they are inclined to be u>gly. It is reported that 100 armed bucks were seen crossing the railroad track at Minne« waukan, and were en route from Turtle mountains to join the Sioux at Standing Rock, but said they were going hunting. Si. PATH,, Minn., Nov. 19.—General Ruger, commander of the Department of Dakota, accompanied by his aid-decamp, Lieutenant Woodruff, returned Tuesday from their tour of inspection; among the various posts of the Northwest. General Ruger was busy with accumulated work, but Lieutenant Wood^ ruff said the reports of trouble were more or less exaggerated. WASHINGTON, Nov. 19. — Telegrams- have been received at the War Depart- meat calling attention to the fact that it is important that the full quota of troopsshould be maintained at Fort McKinney, Wyo., to meet any emergency which may arise in connection with the threatened Indian outbreak. Fort McKinney occupies a very important pivotal point in such a time as this, being so far away from railroad facilities and in the direct line of retreat of the savages should a war occur. There are 5,000 people now exposed in that vicinity, and all of them will be at the mercy of the Crows, Cbeyennes, Shoshones and Arapahpes on the southwest and the Sioux on the east. The War Department rooagnizes the necessity of enlarging the protection at Fort McKinney, where only two companies are now located, and it is expected necessary assistance will be given. •tperlments with tha New Cafe ft* sumption.

Dr. Koch does not claim that he can cure advanced cases ot tubercular consumption, and ho has not positively asserted "that his fluid is a specific in incipient cases; but the evidence he has offered is such that it has aroused the hopes of tho medical fraternity and given new hope of life to many a despairing patient.

WASttisrotosr, Nor. W.^-tJaited States Treasure* James N. Hustoti has sub* mltted to Secretary Windota his report on the operations and conditions of the Traaavtfj fof the fiscal year ended June W. A synopsis is as follows! The net ordinary revenues amounted t6 $403 080,883, a sum but twice exceeded in the history of the Government. The increase over the year before was $16,030,983, of which $11,725,191 came from the internal revenue. The ordinary expenditures were «887,736,*)6. an Increase of $15,789,871 over those of the yoar before. The growth of the revenues was, therefore, a little greater than that of the expenditures. There would have been a falling off in the latter but lor the Increase in pensions. The surplus revenues were $105,344,406, of which M>,304,2S4 waa paid out in premiums on bonds purchased. According to the warrants tne receipts of the Po8t-Olllco Department wore $fil,10«,041 and the expenditures $87,011,803, an Increase of between $5,000,000 and $0,000,000 on both sides. At the close of business Juno SO, 18S9, there stood charged to the Treasury on the boolts of tho department tho sum of 8073,899,118. To this were added the receipts of tho year from the revenues and on account of the public debt, amounting in all to $048,875,- S03, so that tho aggregate for which ho was accountable during the year was $1,321,774,483. Of this ho disbursed $030,247,078 on warrants of tho department, leaving $601,527,403 in his charge Juno 30,1800. There was Included in these accounts, however, upwards of $28,000,003 on deposit with the States under an oid law, besides nearly $1,500,000 of unavailable funds for which the Treasurer was not re sponstblo. On the other hand, there was on deposit with htm for various purposes a large sum of which the department tooK no account, and he had received other sums which had not yet been charged to him. Tho true amount for .which lie was accountable June 30, 1889, was $700,643,871 a«id $757,615.078 a yoar later, against which he held a like amount of assets, consisting of gold, silver, paper currency and deposits with. National banks. The amount of gold in theTreasury increased during the year from $303,387,719 to $320,933,145, and th« silver from $315',(60,779 to $346,831,- Exclusiveof amounts on deposit there was in the Treasury belonging to the Government Juno 30, 1889> $336,028,937, and June 30,1890, $286,- 88i,815, the amount of gold having Increased about $4.000vOOO, while tho silver decreased nearly $9,000,000. The liabilities decreased during the yoar Jrom $187,913,880 to $107,134,718, and the reserve, being the excess of assets over liabilities, ran dawn from $198,097,047 to'$179,SGO 097. ' The total obligations of the Treasury on all accounts were $1,810,678,475 June SO-, 188? and $!,7^2,240, M3 June 30, 1890. The debt less cash lathe Treasury was $1,059,034,60S. on the former date, and) was $964,325,084 on the latter. Not counting th# certificates of deposit the debt proper in ths shape of bonds and circulating notes was reduced from $1,250,043,186 to $1,145,400,980. Thte was effected at a tnital of $124,952,243 for principal and premiums. Nearly 174,000,000 of 4 per cent, bonds, and. upwards of $30,000,003. of V/i per cents, were- purchased. Important changes took place in the circulating medium, but they were of a more f avora-ble character than those-of the year before; There was a gain of $15,000>000 in the stock of. gold, an increase of $43,UOO,000 in that of' silver and a contraction of $26,000,000 in the volume of bank notes, resulting in a net increase of $32,000,000' in the aggregate supply of money. The total stock, including sertHieates of dopoats as well as the gold, silver and notes held in the Treasury for:their redemption is estimated to have increased-fram, $4,099,068,718 to JS,170)JB7,136, and the actual eirculatlju, being the stock less the amount; in the Treasury, from $l,38T,551,833to $1,443,083,618 In. round numbers the; circulation of June 30* 1SSO, consisted of $505)060,000 of gold and .gold, certificates, $-114,000.000' of silver and silver certificates, and $523,s009uTOO of United States aud National bank notesx Not much change hue. taken place In. the increment of the United States notes.

The absorption, «rf legal tender, silr ver into the circulation, in the form.! of. •tin* certificate of deposit, has been, fully rap to the means, of the Treasury for. supplying it. The freshi issue ot certificates- took up the year's coinage of standard silver dollars and three millions more. There was- also an outflow of between two and three mill- ions-ot fractional silver-dollar coins, which., en- couamges the hope thati. with good management, the Treasury, in the course of a few years more,, may be relieved of. tha redundant stoote: ofi these coins for some tizn&on hand.
