Whitehead ftad was heard by house of commons with mixed feelings. Kot only the feSttremc lories, but the liberals, such ns AsdUith, regftfd.the action as a tveak attempt o& the part of the government to placate the feelings of the Irish, ruffled already by the lords meddling with the land hill. White ftidley is himself roundly abused by the majority of his own party, though Mi'. Balfour is really responsible. This belated mercy, this pardoning tendency, taken in conjunction with Lord Russell's letter, apparently gives Mrs. Maybricka good chance for speedy release. ___ _ _ __ MURDERED BY STRIKERS, Kniplojees of the Mrown lIolsHuu Works Fired Upon From Ambush, CLKVET,AJn>, O., Aug. 15.— One of the most dastardly attempts at premeditated murder ever laid at the door of organized labor took place here, it being the outcome of the great Brown strike that has been going on here for three months.
