Aa Impending Conflict Betweea Orange-
men and Catholics.
Habbob Gbacb (N. F., Dec. 25.A
reign of terror prevails in this place.
To-morrow is the anniversary of the
massacre of Orange'men on St Ste
phen's day, a year ago. The Orange
men will walk 900 strong, in defiance
of the Newfoundland monnted police
and the .British man-of-war sailors.
Every adult Catholic and Protestant
in the district is fully armed and a
repetition of last year's massacre ap
pears inevitable. There are 1500 peo
ple in the district, a large majority of
whom are Protestants. The Catholics
live in settlements by themselves.
The Koman Catholic Cathedral re
cently finished at a cost of 25,000 is
one of the most beautiful on this side
of the Atlantic. It is now feared that
this will be wrecked. The greatest
harmony and good will existed be
tween the Catholics and. Protestants
hero up to eighteen months ago
About this time Bishop McDonald
invited the Catholic missionaries to
hold revival services here. In arous
ing the zeal of their own people they
also aroused, the ire of the Protes
tants, whose religion they denounced.
Both Catholics and Protestants are
very ignorant, and, of course, intense
ly bigoted. The Protestants began
petty annoyances to individual Cath
olics. One Catholic was set upon
and beaten while returning from a
The Orangemen being away to tho
Labrador fisheries last year on St.
Stephen's day, they had only 300
members in Harbor Grace district
"While marching in procession they
were met at the extreme end of
the the towu by a body of 200 Cath
olics from Bivershead, a place three
miles distant The visitors were
armed with clubs and sealing-guns.
These men, who are engaged, in seal-
fishing, all own guns twice the length
of ordinary rifles and carrying a mur
derous charge of shot, pieces of iron,
lead, eta The Catholics insisted that
the Orangemen should turn back.
The latter refused and a shot rang
out from the Catholic party and a
boy named Jeans fell dead on his
face, covered with sixty wounds from
a gun charged with scraps or iron.
The Orangemen, being unarmed,
turned tail and ran. In the melee
and confusion three other Orangemen
were killed and fifteen badly wounded.
One Catholie-was also killed. All, ex
cept Jean9 and another, were shot in
the back while running away. The
Catholic is said to have been shot by
his own son. who, in shooting at the
Orange rabble, killed his father, who
was standing just in front of him.
In Harbor lirace both sides are
armed to the teeth. Every able-
bodied man in this district is armed
with, a revolver, repeating rifle or
sealing gun. Explosive bullets were
openly imported and both sides are
preparing for St Stephen's day to
morrow. Meanwhile business has
been demoralized, the only efficient
law here being the power of the
strongest In this dilemma the gov
ernment besought the imperial an
thorities to send a man-of-war, which
is now here and will assist the gov
ernment mounted p'lice to-morrow
in attempting to prevent what "now
appears to be an inevitable and bloody
The Controlling Power of the Iron Chan

lin dispatch says: It is impossible for
BiBmarck to leave Berlin or Varain
at present He personally controls
all business and will not trust any of
the ministers to act on their own re
sponsibilty. A direct wire connects
Bismarck's office with the foreign
office at Vienna. It is no exaggera
tion to say that he controls Austro
The Germans resident at St Peters
burg met and forwarded here a pro
test against the action of the reichstag

The Germans residing in Warsaw sent
a patriotic address to Bismarck.
London, Dee. 25. The London
News, in an article on the decision of
the powers to ignore the English-
isgyptian proposals, says: xne action
was prompted by Bismarck, who, irri
tated by the policy of Gladstone, de
sires to overthrow the British cabinet
Bismarck, it is said, wanted England
to annex Egypt, and so enable Ger
many to pursue unhampered, her
present policy of colonization. France
and Austria, continues the article,
would willingly support Bismarck, as
they, "consider the success of England
in Egypt will put oh'eck to their
schemes of annexation elsewhere.

THE NICARAGUA TREATY.
Opposition of tho English Press to the
New Yobk, December 25. The
Herald? s London cable special says:
The Times has a leader on the Nica
raguan treaty a column and a half
long, in the course of which it says:
"Cleveland's character, indeed his
conduct during the late contest, leads
us to hope that he will adopt a digni
fied and friendly course. "We readily
admit that the Nicaragua canal
scheme mu3t bo judged in tho United
States primarily on its merits, with
out reference to English susceptibil
ities, or even English interests. At
the same timo we occupy a position
of almost impregnable strength in
protesting against the policy which
would constitute a deliberate viola
tion of treaty rights. The Clayton
Bulwer treaty was expressly designed
to cover such a case as that contem
plated in the arrangement with
Nicaragua. When it is proposed to
abrogate that treaty by the will of
one of the parties it is incumbent on
the dissentient nation to justify that
extreme measure by convincing argu
ment Meantime, tho obligations,
legal and moral, of the Clayton-Bul-
wer treaty, remain unimpaired. '
Labouchero poohpoohs the idea,
in Truth, that tho Clayton-Bulwer
treaty was to cover any other than
the canal contemplated in President
Fillmore's time. The Shipping Ga-
ztete has a strong article upholding
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. "It seems
ludicrous," said an ex-United States
senator yesterday in the hearing of
your correspondent, "that England,
with all her oriental complications,
should be inventing a rumpus about
a western enterprise'
RANDALL'S SOUTHERN TRIP.
A Journey in the Interest of Pennsylvania
"Wasmngtox, December 25. The
following is given byihe Star as the
reason for BandalPs southern trip:
A number of members of congress
and capitalists aro investing large
sums of money in the iron and coal
lands in Tennessee and Alabama and
are preparing to open-up tho mining
industries of that region. The coal
and iron veins lie in parallel ridges,
a few miles apart, passing through
Alabama, Tennesseo.-SKentucky and
into Virginia. In Alafama anttfTen-
ncssee it is said to be the best in the
world. Northern men are at work at
Birmingham and the English and
Tennesseeans are working out iron
at South Pittsburg. Representative
McMillan and his brother have
bought 10,000 acres of coal and iron
lands in that region since the adjourn
ment oi last session. or a year
they have been getting out iron be
low the lowest price it can bo brought
here from Europe and they are send
ing pig iron to Pittsburg and Phila
delphia cheaper than it can be worked
For several years past the river and
harbor bill has made appropriations
to remove obstructions in tho Ten
nessee river. This year an appropri
ation of at least 30,000 will be made.
When the work is completed there
will be a water-way open all the year
round from the iron furnaces of the
south to Cincinnati, St Louis, Louis
ville, Pittsburg and Philadelphia.
Southern members say that when
this is open the Pennsylvania fur
naces will have to shut down, as tho
southern furnaces can undersell any
furnace in the world, and the ques
tion of protection does not enter in
to their calculations. The fact that
the opening of the Tennessee meant
so much to northern iron-workers
has been kept a secret up to this
time. This will sufficiently account
for Mr. Randall's trip.
Christmas in Europe.
Pabis, December 25. The day was
dull for Christmas, except among tho
Germans. Itinerants wero selling a
political toy representing Bismarck
and Ferry embracing. In Vienna tho
day was unusually gloomy, owing to
the bad condition of trade and tho
damp weather. In Berlin there were
the usual festivities in the imperial
palace, un Uhnstmas eve tho em
peror gave presents to the wholo
household. The empress received
Bismarck and his wife.
France and Germany.
London, December 25. A Bjrlin
correspondent says: A secret con
vention has been concluded between
France and Germany, in accordance
with which France is allowed unlim
ited colonization in Morocco and

TO THE PEOPLE OP
ASTORIA and VICINITY
Owing to the unprecedented rush of business at our Store, we.
find it simply impossible to write a proper advertisement enumerat
ing the various Novelties in the line of HOLIDAY GOODS we have
on hand, all of which are being rapidly disposed of and selected from.
The public evidently know where to get the BEST ARTICLES
for the LEAST MONEY. It is a well-known fact that we undersell
any establishment in Astoria; as our expenses are lighter than those
of any other store in town.
We adhere strictly to our ONE PRICE SYSTEM, all our goods
being marked in plain figures, and we will not ask you $10.00 for an
article and afterward sell it to you for One Dollar, (as is frequently
done elsewhere in Astoria.)
Bear in mind also, that we are the LEADING NEWS DEALERS of
Call, examine our Goods and Prices and be convinced of
the Truth of What We Say.
