orders against the strikers, the prepon
derance of sentiment now is in opposition.

Adolph Luetgart for the murder of his
wife, began in earnest today, the pre'

state, the jury will be asked by the de

Legislation Looking to Its Adoption Is
New York, Aug. 30. A dispatch to
to the Herald from Lima, Peru, says :
El Commercio says editorially that
the financial measures recently submit
ted to and now pending in the Peruvian
congress, will, without doubt, tend to
the adoption of the gold standard in
Peru. The result El Commercio further
says, will not be brought about without
a monetary crisis more or less intense.
The gold standard, in the opinion of
the paper, waB the only remedy for Pe
ru's present financial straits, and such a
change would be productive of perma
nent good. In the meantime, business
in Peru is practically at a standstill, the
markets are almost in a state of panic.
A dispatch from Buenos Ayres says

the other provinces, that is, none will

With the close of the Presidential Campaign THE TRIBUNE recognizes the
fact that the American people are now anxious to give their attention to home and
business interests. To meet this condition, politics will have far less space and
prominence, until another State or National occasion -demands a renewal of the
fight for the principles for which THE TRIBUNE has labored from its inception
to the present day. and won its ereatest victories.
Every possible effort will be put forth, and money freely spent, to make THE

instructive, entertaining and indispensable to each member of the family.
