ministers, while riding tho circuit In Popo
county, Ark., wore shot from tho brush,
yesterday, by two illicit distillers namod
Hughes and Halo. It is believed Hughes

warrants are now out for their arrest for
illicit distilling. One ol tho mlnistora was
mortally wounded and diod two hours after
being shot. Tho other two wore seriously,
if not fatally wounded. There Is a large
number or illict distillers In that part of the

and in a few minutes hundreds of China
men piled on top of each other, screamlngi
moaning and crying in Chinese and English.
In a few minutes after tho accident occurred
a few ofllcers rushed to the scene and at
tempted to render assistance, but their eilorts
wore In vain for awhile, as those who wore
uninjured refused to render any assistance
or stand back. A reinforcement of police
under Capt. l)ougla3 came up in ashorttlmo
and cleared a spot around which lay the fal

removed the debris and in a little while com

actors, lully aware of what had occurred,
continued playing on tho stapo as if nothing

Chicago, Oct. 20.--The week that has just
clostd has beon marked by no great varia
tions in tho prices ot tho principal cereals,
and though there has been a very large legit
imate business transacted in nearly every
branch of produce, and tho speculators deal
ings havo noarly equaled those of tho previ
ous week, tho situation seems practically un
changed as regards tho luture. The Lastern
question seems to hato assumed n phase
which will prevent sudden rise In the near
future on account of the probable war, and
prices here seem to havo a receding rather
than advancing tendency.

London, Oct. 30. The Marl Lane Express
says there has been better weather during
the past week, and in the North remains of
outstanding crops have been mostly gather
ed. Tho condition of the crops is deplorable
in many districts. Barley and oats were
hardly worth carting, and the grass was so
sodden as to have lost much of Us nourish
ing properties. Iteports of the potato blight
ncmgiuuuiy. j uo uiseaae, us yei, is con
lined to a lew English and Scotch districts,
but it is feared it will extend to Ireland.
Fine dry weatder is greatly needed for pota
toes, and lor sowing wheat, a considerable
acreage of wheat has been sown during the
past week. Holders of whoat remain very
nrm.and millers buy reluctantly; but they
are by no means satisfied that an advance in
prices is improbable. Local trade has boen
quiescent with a moderate consumptive de
mand. Wheat has, with dilllculty, main
tained previous prices. California cargoes
on passage have declined slightly from the
highest point, but a firmer feeling has been
Grain Fi.ekt. The Ot tgoman says there
aro now at Portland and in the river twenty
two 03sels belonging to tho grain fleet
some just arrived, some discharging ballast
