THE PPKR DES MOtNES.AlGHOKA, IO^ A, WEDKJiSPAt, OCTOBER 14,1891* LATEST NEWS, IOWA. PAIVNEM, «EAl>! It is nn pr;i of startling tieafb". Bal- rm'ceda, fjouliingf-r and Parnell have made for the present fall n somber record. The third in the list of mortalities is divested of tragic features Fuch as marked the other two, but the news of it nevertheless comes with n suddemiesf equally great. Bat Parnell nn less than Balmaceda and Bon langer had passed the pinnacle of bin glory. His s'ar was already declining. Hie life was a failure. What it might have been is not easily conceivable Even the Entflich premiership was not beyond the possibility of his reach at one time. His rise and fall are matters of current history. His work for the Irish cause was great, and resulted in a nearer approach to the end desired than had ever before 'been attained. But at the very moment when it seemed as though success was all but ready to crown hia efforts, his public career was blasted nnd the cause he championed greatly injured by indiscretions of personal condu:t which forever put the stigma of shame upon his name. Even had it been possible for a grieved and betrayed people to overlook this serious lapse, the imperious attitude of the fallen hero afterward, when he disdainfully declined to relinquish the leadership of the Irish party in favor of Gladstone and sought to bring into contempt the grand old man himself, would have forbade reconciliation. In that crisis the true character oi the man was exhibited, and, instead ot an unselfish spirit laboring for the ad vancement of a noble cause, the world beheld an autocrat, ambitious, self- seeking, and dishonest — dishonest insofar as he deliberately endeavored to belittle the glorious services of Ireland's best friend, Glads-tone.

After the terrible storm of scandal had broken over the head of Parnell he seemed to grow more determined every day to maintain his personal leadership at every cost, and more violent in his denunciations of all who relumed to enlist under his banner. He abandoned utterly the old principle of working by parliamentary means through existing English parties, and asserted tun right of Ireland as an independent power co shapelier future for herself. However ready any man may be to accept this m an abstract principle, he must, if he understands the situation, admit that it is entirely impracticable as a matter of fact. Ireland is not un independent power, and it cannot IK; made such unites some force is brought to bear on Great Uritian stronger than Great Uritian horsolf. When Mr. Parnell .spumed the Eng'iuh liberal party with a contempt and virulence even greater than thiit which lie bestowed upon Balfour and his lory associates it wan not surprising that the personal influence that was his diminished in a ratio equalling the intelligence of the people. There waa then nothing to lj« seen in the future of his Hide except, a personal endorsement and a personal triumph for Mr. Pnrnell. If: ho had gone into parliament with the Irish members solid as a unit behind him, a result which is not possible, what could he have done except to claim it, as u vindication of himself? His party, as a party, would luivo been, absolutely powerless. Haling anil hulwl by liberals itml lories alike, it could not have snsurod tho passage of a siiigla remedial measure.

ANXIOUS creditors in the City of Mexico Straits and the Indian Ocean, Venturous Chinese nirates have gone so far west as the Rjd Sea, and long before the discovery of America by Columbus had visited the Pacific shores of North and Sotuh America. The Chinese records state that in 1050 pirates from Quan-tung had sailed many moons across the eastern sea (Pacific Ocean), until they discovered a great land where there were many natives with fine cities, volcanoes, a profusion of gold and silver, and where the officials wore costumes made of bird's plumage. No one can r?ad the description without identifying Mexico, Central America and Peru As a result of these discoveries the Chinese government sent emoassies to these countries in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The embassies returned bearing rich presents for the emperor, and described the people they had visited as polite, peaceable and prosperous. Strangest of all, they reported that these nations had much trouble and many wars upon their frontiers with the red-skinned race, similar to the Malay'savages with wbom the Chinese were always in hot water. THOUSANDS IN THE PIRACY BUSINESS. At the beginning of the present century piracy was well nigh universal in this port ot Asia. At least half a million men were more or less engaged in it as a profession. Ihe civilized powers made short work of the evi . England, as usual, took the leading hand in suppressing the practice, and showed no mercy on either junk or manner that displayed the symptoms of buccaneering. Portugal and Holland were more diplomatic and economical. They would em- •wete identified and had fmttty-eight hours' start, the prospejt of tueir capture seemed very improbable. Nevertheless the thing was_done, and fifty pirates in the "Namoa affair, but ninety-four pirates have been already beheaded for that crime. The trials and executions were conducted without any of the law's delay by each of the five iribuals engaged therein. Some of the trials afforded startling glimpses of criminal life in China. In one case a pirate was identified by some twenty twitnessess as having been engaged in as many piracies and as having taken part in the slaughter of more than one hundred innocent captives. In a tecond trial occurred a very dramatic event. The proceedings were at an end and the magistrate left his throne to kneel and praj before the imperial tablet which is set in the wall of the court room and on which in heavily chiseled characters are inscribed the words which give him the power of life and death. The act is equivalent to passing the sentence of death. When the inagisfrate arose from his knees the burly pirate, who had never moved a muscle during the ceremony, said in tones that could be heard through the court room: "Judge, jour justice is injustice. Under the guise of law you kill the same as we pirates kill. This trial has been e farce. I was not in the Namoa matter, but I am a pirate. I glory in it and am ready to die. There are three other pirates whom you have condemned, and condemntc justly; but yonder five creatures, who stand there with chattering teeth and hands palsied with fear, are not and never were pirates. You can'see for yourself that they have not the courage of a small child and they are not the stuff of which pirate are made. Of course you will kill them, but tneir killing will be none the less murder. THE EXECUTIONS, t The executions went off in the regulation oriental way.

In 1780, In Formosa, by a wise distribution ot cheap firearms, they' induced the leaders ot aflakka pirate village to make war upon and exterminate a Chinese pirate village of 2,000 population, and the year following prevailed upon To-Yens to make a night descent upon the Hakkas ll ,"-, , ll L allnost everv nian,-women and child. No one can read the local records oi this district without seeing how high a value was setu pon piratical crime, and how valueless and insignificant has been ana is all human life. Ten years ago it seemed as if piracv wore utterly extinct, Tne vigilonce of the authorities on the one side and of the foreign naval commanders - on the other was relaxed to such an extent that trie condition of affairs here became the same as what prevail to-day along the coast of our the prison; the pirates were brought out with their arms pinioned behind them and their feet manacled. Their queues were tied up in a curious, high, hard knot, into which was stuck a bamboo skewer holding a paper card, on which was written the name of the prisoner and the crime for which he was doomed to die. They were escorted by tho guard to the place of execution on the beach. This at Kowlocn is within a cabletow's jength of the shipping and at Amoy directly opposite the windows of this consulate. The ceremony, though public, appears to have little attraction for the Chinese Ut those who witne3sed it the majority in every case were Europeans. The troops tormed in Mine and the prisoners knelt down upon the sandy shore. The warrant was read by an official and the executioner who seemed a slender stripping of 16* began his work.

Tho pirates and the criminal classes irom whom their ranks are recuited perceived the opportunity and took advantage of ic. At first they confined tho depredations to vessels belonging to their fellow countrymen. TLey prospered, and in almost every attack were very successful Emboldened by succrss they became very venturesome and reckless, and last winter extended their operations to European vessels and European steamships. Their work culminated last Christmas in the capture and looting of the British steamship '•Namoa," one of the handsomest cratts that ply these waters. The pirate s ailed the captain and several passengers besides wounding a, score, aud robbed every soul on board. TI1EIK METHOD OF OPERATION. Their mode of operation is as simple as u is ingenious. Through their spies they earn when it is probable a steamship cr us passengers will carry large amounts ef, treasure. 1 hey go on board as steerage ind deck passengers, each one carryin"" us be.lduig and cooking utensils and di°- ;uised to resemble innocent, hard-work- coolies. When the ship is at sea out ot sight ot any other vessel they rise en nasso, kill every person who makes any vsistance and imprison tho officers and Tew. Wlnln one detachment is rabbin" ..U tho passengers, the mail and rreasuro room, the second is steering the ship -ind over and concealing the head beneath it. Ihe next moment a second head fell then a third and a fourth; only once wns there a slip in the entire nineteen behead edon this paticular occasion. Then tho prisoner swerved, and the. sword striking too low, but half removed the head. Two assistants sprang forward and seized th body, then in the \,hroes of death, while a siiw-like cut of the weapon, severed tho neck epinplel-ly. A minute after the last head had fallen the command was given and the troops inarched away, and the headless bodies were left with the gaping crowd. HOW THEY MET DEATH. In one execution a prisoner lost his courage and be-jan to cry like a child The next moment his right hand neighbor turned and said to him: ''Don't be a baby, oe a man—die like a pirate " In another a powerful fellow whom the ex- cutioner was approachintr grinned at the liurppeans who stood in front and said: 1 All right, foreign deriUj you can say good-byto the boss pirate of the gang." But the strangest oi all was the dyimr remark of the ugliest and crudest of the entire band. He enjoyed the singular reputation ot being a fearless cut-throat and a very pious Buddhist. Just before his head fell he cMled out in the most solemn way: -'Itis your turn now, but ours is to couio. My soul will be back here in eighteen years, and for every head you take to-day [ shall take one hundred of yours then/' The bodies are allowed to lie a day o more upon the beach aud are then thrown into the sea as food f3r the fishes. Their heads are gathered the same day and put into what looks for all the world a third is attending the machinery and boilers below. They take their captim to some point where their junks are awaiting them, draw the fires and anchor the steamer. Ihey transfer their plunder to their own craft and nre soon lost in the tortuous waterways and intricate channels of the coast. The system worked perfectly in the c<i«e ot the "Namoa," but it produced a reaov. e cigar boxes and exposed to public view until decomposition renders then unrecognizable. • There are a number of trails yet to bo beheaded. It is to be hoped that these systems of wholesale extermination will intimidate the criminal classes and restore the peace and quiet that prevailed iu lofeO. If it does not we are bound to have very lively times and deathly one. too, at every port on the coast of China, and 'especially at this ancient and. venerable city of Amoy.—Edward .Bedleo, in Philadelphia TiiueR.
