ACROSS THE SEA.
How it Looks to a "Washington
'Things are getting pretty hot
in England," suggested a Wash
ington correspondent to his friend,
" Yes," was the response; "the
situation is becoming decidedly
interesting. It is takingjthe shape
I expected. I told you several
weeks ago that this Irish conspi
racy was as dangerous to England
us nihilism to Russia. You
thought I was an alarmist. Look
at Great Britain to-day. London
is almost in a stage of siege; the
queen is afraid to leave "Windsor;
the shipping at the wharves and
railroad depots swarm with detec
tives; the guards are being
doubled at all public places; the
police force is being strengthened
throughout the kiugdom; strangers
are followed to their hotels and
their luggage ramsacked;dynamite
factories are being discovered on
all sides. The people are thor
oughly scared. Is Russia in any
worse condition? I received a
private cablegram to-day. It con
tains but few words, but their im
port is serious. It says: 'Sen
sation frightful; active prepara
tions at house guards; tough times
coming.' That message is from a
cool-headed man. I am disposed
to think the situation is worse than
the newspapers indicate."
"How do you think it will
"The Lord only knows. Arrests
will be made until every British
prison will be filled with suspects.
That will not stop the reign of
terror. There are desperate men
at the head of this movement,
they will not turn back; they will
have no scruple to do bloody
deeds. This plot is not of late
origin. It has been developing
for years. There was compara
tive quiet in Ireland after the pas
sage of the Irish church bill. The
home rule movement and the ap
parently peaceful agitation of the
land league lulled the suspicion
of the British government.
Beaconsfield and Gladstone both
misunderstood the temper of the
people they were dealing with.
They trifled with sharp-edged
swords. English rule in Ireland
has never been secure since the
Irish obtained a strong footinjr in
this country. Here they are free
to plot against their hereditary foe.
They can issue orders from this
point of safety and find daring
hands on the other side to executo
them. A good supply of money
is at their command here. The
utterances of the Irish-American
press encourage the peasantry of
the old country. England may
manage to keep down the spirit
of lawlessness and rapine for a
time, but it will keep breaking
out as long as the conspirators
can meet safely in the United
States and plan mischief against
the friendly power. England is
anxious for this government to
take a decided stand on this ques
tion. There are some plain notes
in Secretary Frelinghuyseu's hands
now. He hardlyflehows how to
reply to them. The question is
whether the contributions for send
ing dynamite to England for the
destruction of public buildings are
not violations of the neutrality
law. This is of more importance
just now than the extradition of
men like Sheridan and Egan. I
understand that there are eminent
lawyers in this country who are of
the opinion that open receipt of
subscriptions for such purposes as
Rossa and Finerty rave about
render them liable to the neutral
ity of law. England realizes that
she can never rest easy until there
is some way of muzzling the Irish
Americans. She will exercise
very device of diplomacy to at
tain this result."
"Do you think there is much
chance hero of succeeding?"
"I am afraid not. Our govern'
ment has no dccidd policy on such
questions. Frelinghuysen is tim
orous; Arthur hesitates on ques
tions of home policy and can
scarcely ba expected to take a firm
grasp on international questions.
It would be different if Blaine
were still secretary of state. He
would have an opinion and will
enough to express it and carry the
president and cabinet with him.
That opinion might not be favora
ble to England, but it would force
a settlement of the matter one waj
or another. It must be settled
some day. Other European pow
ers are interested in it. None of
them feel safe while conspirators
can obtain safe refuge on these
shores. Your state department
will have as much as it can handle
before long. There arc rumors in
inside circles that the Fenians are
iu league with the anarchists of
other nations. It is rather singu
lar that there should be distur
bances in other countries at this
particular time. I have no doubt
myself that there is a close alliance
between the invincibles of Ireland
and America, the communists of
France, the socialists of Germa
ny, the nihilists of Rusia and the
Black Hand of Spain. They are
all active. The proposed interna
tional police system would be an
immense thing for the crowned
heads of Europe."
"In a previous interview you ap
prehended an uprising in the
large manufacturing towns of
"That danger is greater to-day
than over before. The English
people are worked up to a frenzy
oE excitement. A few days may
witness scenes of bloodshed in the
manufacturing districts. Events
are exciting now, but there are
worse to follow."
A Sis Week's Programme
A San Francisco special to the
Oregonian of the 12th says: "In
conversation this evening with a
gentleman who is in a position to
speak advisably with regard to
the object of Villard's visit to the
Pacific coast, and to contemplated
improvements in connection with
steam and the railroad service of
the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion company and the Northern
Pacific, he stated to an Oregonian
correspondent that much appre
hension existed on the subject.
He prefaced his remarks by stat
ing that it could be regarded as a
certainty that Villard did not
propose to revolutionize the rail
road system of the coast, but
merely desired to form an opinion
as to how matters were progress
ing, and that in order to do this
had decided to make personal ex
amination. During his stay in
this city he is said to have done
considerable work, and to hare
satisfied himself, both as to the ad
ministration of affairs here and as
to the requirements at present ex
isting and likely to arise in course
of business. Having accomplished
this much, he proposed to leave for
the north to-morrow morning by
the steamship Queen of the Paci
fic, leaving the ship at Astoria and
thence taking passage on a river
steamer going to Kalama, and
thence to Seattle prior to visiting
Portland. His attention would be
directed toward contemplated
railroad extensions there and to
general inspection of the nature of
the country and business opportu
nities. Immigration matters will
also receive their share of his time,
and it is not improbable that he
will make such arrangements as
will work greatly to the benefit of
settlers. After spending a week
or 10 days in the vicinity of Seat
tle, Tacoma and other points in
Washington Territory, the party
will retrace their steps to Port
land, where much ot the prelimi
nary inspection above noticed will
be repeated. In addition to these
features, Villard will also extend
his observations so as to include a
visit to Dakota. In all, some six
weeks will be consumed."
W. H. Vanderbilt's check for
April interest on government
bonds, was 402,000, or the inter
est of 40,200,000 of bonds. He
has received $478,000 for quarter
ly interest. This shows that he
lias sold or otherwise disposed of,
$7,000,000 of his bonds.
Joe Gale has sold his logging
camp on (Dyster bay to a gentle
man from Minnesota, vho, we un
derstand, is an old and experienced
lumberman of the Northwest.
A large raft of logs has just
been put in the boom at the rail
road depot, belonging to Foster,
containing about 1.000,000 feet,
and is now waiting a steamer to
be towed to Tacoma mills.
The cash receipts of the land
office in this city, during the month
of March, was nearly $29,000, the
largest ever received. The land
officers are all kept very busy day
and, night to keep the work up.
There are now three stages run
ning between this city and Monte
sano, and they are all crowded to
their fullest capacity. One of
these stages, by making extra time,
performs two round trips, and the
others one trip each week.
After the war, when the number
of servants in attendance at Oak-
enwold was divided by four or
five, two negro girls, IS and 20,
went to the nearest village "to hire
out." The lady to whom they ap
plied could hardty tell the story
for laughing: "I asked if they
could cook. 'No'ru. we ain't never
bin cook none; Phil alius cook.'
Can you wash? 'No'm, we ain't
bin wash none neither; Aunt Sally
she wash.' Can you clean house,
then? 'No'm, least we ain't never
bin clean, none,' and so" said Mrs.
Nash, "I went through the whole
list of qualifications, receiving al
waj'S the same negative answer.
Well, what in heaven's name, said
I at last have you been accustom
ed to do! Lucinda's dusky face

Among other railroad rumors it
is stated thai President Colby, of
the "Wisconsin Central is now in
New York, closing negotiations
for the sale of the "Wisconsin
Central to the Villard syndicate,
it being the preliminary step to
the establishment of a transconti
nental line from New York to
Portland. With the construc
tion of the Northern Pacific link,
connecting Superior City and
Ashland, "Wisconsin, the Central
gains entrance to Milwaukee.
With another link to Chicago it
will complete a through line to New
York via the Grand Trunk and
"West Shore road. However, the
entire line will not he under a
single management, Villard con
tenting himself, at least for the
present, with a traffic agreement
east of Chicago. It is thought the
whole line will be in operation by
