arrest on the nominal charge of having
discharged a revolver unlawfully in a
public place, but really on suspicion of
having intended to assassinate Glad
stone, lay in wait for Gladstone' de
parture from hi residence, with the full
purpose of murdering the premier.
Townsend, armed with a loaded revolver,
deliberately prepared to shoot Gladstone
as soon a he came within reach. When
Gladstone came out of hi residence,
and the would-be assassin saw him, hie
purpose weakened for a peculiar reason
thu venerable appearance of the prem
ier reminded Townsend of hi own
father' appearance on his death bed.
The pistol elipped from the finger of
the Intending assassin, and he rushed
into the park and sank on a bench and
burst into tears. It is asserted that
Townsend made hi way into the central
hall of the house of commons on the
same night and rigorously denounced
the home-rule bill.

There are several reason, however, why
this outcome now seem les likely than
it did a month ago. Notwithstanding
the fact that Commissioner Blount's ac

the fact that certain things he ha done,
notably the hauling dow n of the flag,
have been received in thia country with
disfavor. The president realize also
that a commissisner appointed to assist

Soon after his arrival at the hotel Mr.

Secretaries Carlisle, Herbert and Mor

Mr. Higginbotham, viewing "America,"
an historical allegory depicting tlie prin
cipal events of American history.
A delegation of city officials, headed
by Mayor Harrison, welcomed the duke
in the name of Chicago in the large re
ception-room of the Lexington hotel,
which was appropriately decorated in
honor of the occasion. Aa the duke en
tered one end of the long room the
mayor and party entered the other.
The mayor advanced, and In a brief
speech presented a costly casket to the
duke, containing theaddressof welcome,
handsomely engrossed and illuminated

The mayor also presented the duke, on
behalf of the city council, w itli a beauti

"Don Cristovar Colon," Btating, as he
did so, that it was a key to the city.
The duke in accepting these testimonials,
bowed and in a low tone responded in

that time Judge Matthew P. Deady,
