' An address of welcome in behalf of
the state was "given by Ex-Governor
President Thurston then delivered an
address. Speaking of the farmers' al
liance movement, he said the importance
must not be understated by the republi
can partv. The hope of the democratic
party today, he declared, is based on its
ability to combine with the alliance or
an electoral ticket in the western states
and therebv throw the election of the
president into the house of representa
tives. He said if republicans expected to
hold the allegiance of the western people
they must see to it that western inter
ests are recognized and western .demands
given fair consideration in legislative
and administrative affairs.

Pittsburg; Penn., April 21. Four
carloads of heavily armed Pinkerton

not allow the national guard to be
used to evict the strikers.

in London. One-third of the members
of the National Liberal club and a ma
jority of the inmates of the largest hotels

THE PANAMA CANAL.
A Report Submitted, Which Was Pre
pared to Conceal h Helplessness of
Paris, April 19. The report on the
Panama canal has been sent to the
liquidator of the company, Monchicourt,
by Lieutenant Wyse, who has been ne
gotiating with the Columbian govern-
! .uA : 'T"v.
port is a voluminous document. It was,
apparently, prepared with the object of
concealing, amid an endless maze of
words and reiterated expressions about
the sanguine prospects the actual hope
lessness of any further enterprise in that
direction. After detailing the negotia
tions, Lieutenant Wyse concluded :
"If my success with (Jolombia is not
to remain barren the hour has come for
us to make a resolution to take immedi
ate and energetic action to save the
capital invested in the work and pre
serve from destruction the vastest pro
ject of the epoch. If underground
maneuvers, against which it is time to
arm, do not cause the pending financial
combinations to fail, the unfortunate
French public will soon receive through
the completion of the canal the greater
part oi tne-savings so recklessly squand
Proceeding to make practical sugges
tions Lieutenant Wyse advocates six
locks, with a single nrtificial lake in the
center as the best scheme. He estimates
the time required to execute the work at
five years and the maximum cost at
600,000,000 francs. Monchicourt person
ally considers that the report offers i
favorable basis for a new financial opera
tion. The report was issued today and
the press has had no time as yet to criti
A BOSTON FIRE.
Twenty Firemen Burled Beneath
Falling; Roof, But None Killed.
Boston, April 19. A fire occurred
early this morning in the Chipman
building, " five-story brick, principally
occupied by Bailey & Kan kin, carpets.
The total loss is estimated at $20,000
While the fire was at its height, the roof
fell, the debris imprisoning nearly
twenty firemen, several whom escaped
iniurv. The streams were at once
directed to the parts of the building
where the accident occurred, and in
few minutes the debris was cooled suffi
ciently to permit of the release of the men
beneath. Chief Engineer Wasber was
among those caught, and altbougl
bruised and burned, he did not reiinquisn
his command. Chief Reagan was also
buried, but his injuries are not serious
Captain .Willet was injured about the
shoulders. Captain Griffin was pinned
down lv heavv timbers, which were
sawed apart before he could be released.
District engineer tJreswell was pinned
down nearlv an nour. lis leg was
crushed by heavy timbers. The injuries
of all. though painful, are not fatal. A
dozen other firemen were injured, some
THIRTY YEARS AGO.
The Sixth Massachusetts Regiment Was
Attacked by a Baltimore Mob.
Baltimore, April 19. The Sixth
Massachusetts light infantry veterans
known as the '"Worcester Light Infan
trv." lineal descendants of the old Mass
achusetts Sixth, well remembered as the
first armed and equipped regiment
which marched to the relief of the na
tional capital, arrived here today. They
came at the same hour, and traversed
the same route as in 1861. Thirty years
ago today the Sixth Massachusetts had
a conict with a mob while passing
through this city, losing four men killed
and Euanv wounded. The demonstra
tion today commemorates the anniver
sary. The veterans were met at the
railroad station by the Grand Army
posts, a detachment of the Sons of Vet
erans and a deputation representing the
city officials. An address of welcome
was delivered by Mayor Davidson in a
happy vein, assuring the veterans of the
profound pleasure in which the visit was
received. In the evening the Duchesne
post entertained the visitors at the Car
OPINION HAS CHANGED.
The English Now Think America in the
London, April 19. Blaine's' dispatch,
dated April 14, to Marquis Imperiali, as
cabled in full, elicits the enconiums it
deserves. It is the merest justice to Mr.
Blaine to say that he has turned the
current of English opinion, which at
one moment ran strongly against
America. The Standard, which at first
was all on the side of Italy, has come
around and practically accepts Blaine's
views with perhaps one exception. His
contention, which was also Webster's,
that foreign residents cannot be made a
more favored class than American citi
zens, appeals strongly to English minds.
The Times has from the beginning been
the friend of America in this matter. It
has taken a sound, sensible view both' of
the New Orleans incident itself and of
the question arising out of it.
A Number of Important Bills Failed to
Pass Adjournment Today.
St. Paul, Minn., April 19. Yesterday
was the last day of the legislature for
passing bills, and the session was a long
and excited one. An adjournement was
not taken until 7 o'clock this morning.
A great number of bills were not acted
upon. The new usury bill was defeated
by inaction, and the famous McHale
anti-tights bill killed in a like manner.
The bill bringing building associations
under the charge of the bank examiner
passed late in the night. The house
fought all day yesterday over the general
appropriation bill, amending it to such
an extent that the jtax levey bill had to
be amended to meet the increased de
mands for money.

Burned to Death.
Portland, April 21. Helen Christian
a domestic, employed at the residence
of Joseph Holder, in Sunnyside, met
with a terrible accident last night
which will doubtless prove fatal.
She was engaged in ironing clothes and
accidentally npset a lighted lamp which
exploded setting fire to her clothes and
completely enveloping her in flames.
Before the names could be smothered
her clothing was entirely consumed and
her flesh was fearfully burned.
She Must Have Been Insane.
New York, April 19. Mrs. Franch
Conrad, aged 59, committed suicide at
her home in Hoboken, N. 3., this morn
ing by hanging. She hacked herself
with a pair of shears at first, severing an
artery in her leg and the arteries of
both her wrists, as well as gashing her
throat. She then hanged herself with a
picture cord. She is believed to have .

Queer Face Ornamentation.
At any time from 16 to 23 years of age
the male Esquimaux have their lower
lips pierced under each corner of the
mouth for labrets. When the incision
is first made sharp pointed pieces of
ivory are put in.
After the wound heals the hole is grad
ually stretched to half an inch in diame
ter. Some of the poorer natives wear
labrets made from caunel coal, ivory,
common gravel and glass stoppers ob
tained from ships, which they shape for
the purpose. All who can obtain them,
have agate ones. Washington Letter.
How Mark Twain Seems.
The opinions of our serving folks are
sometimes worth knowing. At the Murray-Hill
hotel the other day one of the
porters remarked: "There goes the sol
emnest and dismalest gent as ever
stopped at this ouse. I don't blieve he
ever kuowed what it was to larf."
The subject of this depressing and
melancholy criticism was Samuel L.
Clemens, Esq., of Hartford, Conn., not
unknown to admirers of serious and in
structive literature as Mark Twain.
New York World.
Discovery of Mahogany.
. In the year 1597 one of Sir Walter Ra
leigh's ships, in an expedition against the
Azores, put in at Trinidad for repairs.
The workmen used the first wood that
came to hand, and it happened to be the
now famous mahogany. By this accident
it was first introduced into England,
where it was much admired, but it did
not become an article of commerce until
a century later. Since then it has held
first rank as a cabinet maker's wood.
How PLaylns; Marbles Are Made.
Nearly all the common marbles which
drag down the pockets of our boys are
made in Oberstein, Germany. They are
made from the refuse of the agate and
stone quarries in that neighborhood.
The stone is broken into small cubes by
blows of a light hammer. These small
blocks of stone are thrown by the shovel
ful into the "hopper" of a small mill,
formed of a bed of stone, having its Bur
face grooved with concentrated furrows;
above these is the "runner," which is
made of hard wood having a level face
on its lower surface. The upper block
is made to revolve rapidly, water being
delivered upon the grooves of the bed
stone where the marbles are being
rounded. It takes about fifteen minutes
to finish at bushel of good marbles ready
for "snapping." One mill will turn out
170,000 marbles per week. The very
hardest "crackers," as the boys ca?l
them, are made by a slower process,
somewhat analogous, however, to the
other. New York Telegram.
