Millions Against Cbicazo
Claim New York Can Slaughter Beef as
Well as Chicago Millions Quickly
Raised For the Purpose of Estab
lishing a Mammoth Slaughter
House in New York.
Saw York, Aug. 23. The executive
committee of th retail butchers' pro
tective association met last night to con
sider means to fight the Chicago whole
talers. Tbey decided to recommend the
raising of a fund of $5,000,000. Of this
tarn $3,000,000 In to be raised by the re
tailers themselves and $2,000,000 by pop
ular subscription at $1 a ehare with a
maximum holding by any one person of
twenty shares. When the committee
went into session, it hud pledged sub
scriptions of $700,000. When it had
finished this had been increased to (1,
000,000. President Wagner said that
there was no doubt whatever that the
atire ft.OOO.OOO will be quickly raised
by the retailers in New York alone.
President Wagner says the pries is not
filed by the market conditions, but by
caprice. Wagner also declare that 60
percent of the slaughtered beef is avail
able or food supply and the rest has to
be disposed of for various usee, but little
it lost. He says this city is more favor
ably situated for the profitable produc
tion of this product than any of the
Western cities. He says cattle can be
shipped here and more economically
slaughtered and placed on the market
tban in any other city In the country. It
is asserted by the retailers that there are
available here for slaughterers more
than 3000 men who have been compelled
for different causes to leave the butcher
business and get into some more profit
able calling.
When asked what ti nth there was In
the minor that John Rockerfeller, Will
iam C. Whitney and other great capital
ists had offered help to fight the truBt,
Wagner said a committee was now try
ing to meet Mr. Rockerfeller, but he is
out of the city and has not been accessi
ble. Wagner diil not know what Mr.
Whitney intended to do. He rays a
number of wealthy cattle rofn have
agreed to come forward the moment the
renture takes tangible shape and take
large blocks of the stock. President
Wagner said the executive committee
oold not yet recommend site, but
that a majority of the members favor
war blocks that have been offered in
wng Island City. Mr. Kahn prophesied
mat the "trust" would be asking for
wnns in a very short time.
JJulli President Wuirner and Mr. Kahn
laughed at the claim of the trust that it
has to pay more for cattle now and that Is
ihe cause of the riee la the prices of its
meats. Both sny the stockraisers are
ooniplaining bitterly that they are
piling none of the benefit of the higher
prices, but that on the contrary
y are at the mercv of thu trust, which

London, Aug. 26. Upon authority of
unbounded reliability, aieporterof the
Associated Frees has ascertained that
Into the Alaska dispute there has crept
the craftiness of Russian diplomacy.
Russia, it can be stated, will do every
thing, with every possible energy, to pre
vent the practical cohesion of the two
great English-speaking nations. In all
her embassies, instructions have been
received to thwart the Anglo-American
understanding. A prominent diplomat,
who is intimately acquainted with the
details of the negotiations of the past few
years, said to a reporter of the Associated
Press :
"In any arrangement looking to a
working agreement between England
and the United States, Russia sees the
defeat of her dearest projects. I believe
her intense activity in China is to no
small extent due to her fear that Anglo-
Saxon power, once realized, w ill sweep
everything beforo it in the far East.
Dreading the rapid realization of this
nightmare, she is making hay while the
suu shines, in the meantime intriguing
to the utmost to tie the hands of those
who are working to materialize Anglo
American sentiment. The later evidence
of this is in the Alaska affair.
"Though, strictly speaking, it is a mat
ter of internal politics and would have
been settled long ago if left solely to
Great Britain and the United States,
Russia has managed to suggest motives
never dreamed of by America, by dis
torting facts. It is impossible for me to
divulge exactly how, or to what extent
Russia got her paws into the dispute.
But the attitude of her press, official to
the oore, is quite sufficient to ehow her

Accident to His Launch Startled
Him He Is Now Wholly Inca
pacitated for Duty.
Washington, Aug. 20. The Army
and Navy Register says:
Recent advices from Manila mention
the illness of Admiral Watson as a source
of great anxiety to his officers. The III-
nes is an rffect of an accident which
occurred to his launch while he was on on Julv 11. The Baltimore, his
flagship, has been for some time at Ca-
vlto, leaving Manila so as to escape the
full force of the typhoons. Requiring
to make a trip up tho river, the admiral
started In his launch.
A strong wind was blowing, and the
launch, the Undine, went under the
bridge over the river, known as the
Bridge of Spain, the strong current
aided br the wind set against the little
boat, and she was taken out of her
course and thrown against a hawser from
a sailing vessel. This rope carried away
the awning, and, striking the smoke
stack, took that also. Admiral Watson,
sitting in the forward part of the launch
ami witnessing the full danger of the
accident, showed no conscious appear
ance of having ben startled excessively
by the occurrence or in any way of hav
ing suffered by it.
Later, however. In fact, btfere his re
turn to the flagship, serious heart trouble
developed, and In consequence he was
regarded as extremelv ill np to the date
of the letters of the 17th. No one but
his physician is allowed access to him

iam F. Matlock, ex-senator from. Uma
tilla county. He has been a practitioner

lector during Cleveland's administration

Miller was beating him so severely that
he was convinced Mi ler might kill him.
He asserts that Miller was enraged at
Mims' alleged attempt to undermina
him in his business.
