Cincinnati, June 29 The big music hall was gay with bu itin .', plants, flow ers, temperance inscriptions and por traits ol Washingtoi, Lincoln, Neal Dow and Frances W'llard, when the Sixth National convention of the Pro hibition party waa called to order by Chairman Dickie, of the National com mittee, this morning, 'Ihe proceedings opened with the hvinn "America" on the organ, the audience rising and join ing in tne singing. At toe conclusion Dr. J. G. Evans, of Bedouin Collese. Illinois, offered a prayer. Rev. Dr. M. C. Lockwood, of Cincinnati, welcomed the delegates in I ehalf of the city and State, Baying among other thing, that the organized labor of the country was beginning to appreciate the fact that the labor and saloon problems are insep arable, and that labor could never rise while the saloon flourished. Professor Dickie responded in behalf of the delegates and said the prohibition ists knew precisely what they wore here for and exactly where they were going, and there was no danger that any ob stacle would divert them from their re lentless purpose. "We are here," he added, "to put candidates in nomina tion and keep them in the field until the polls close next November." This allu sion to no fusion with the people's party waa loudly applauded. The speaker further said the delegates were here to make an unequivocal platform and closed by naming Ex-Governor St. John as temporary chairman. Wild cheering and waving oi nags and handkerchiefs greeted the mention of the famous Kan sas man and was renewed as he stopped on the platform and assumed the gavel. Governor St. John thanked the con vention for the honor of being chosen to preside over the "Greatest, grandest convention in sobriety, moral force and brain power evor convened on the American soil," and continued: "It represents a parly that dares to do right because it is right and condemns wrong because wrong. It stands for peace, prosperity and happiness to every home and death to every saloon in the land. It demands for women equal pay in the shop and equul say at the polls, a free ballot for the white men of Penn sylvania, Massachusetts and Iowa as for the black men of Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina; that the North, the South, the East, the West and black and white, rich and poor, every human being shall have protection of lile and property; that the expenses of government be levied on the wealthy instead of the necessities of the people. We claim that any system which im poses a high tariff on the food, fuel and clothing of the poor and lets the dia monds o: the rich come in free legalizes robbery under the guise of protection and ought to be forever abolished; that all money should be issued by the gov ernment; every dollar, whether gold, silver or paper, should stand upon an equality before tne law for all purposes ; that the coinage of both metals be free. Speaker continued urging government ownership of railways and telegraph, the election of President, vice-President and secretary of States by direct vote, the extension of the Presidential term to six years with no successive term, the suppression of monopolies, and con tinued: "Legalized liquor traffic for beverage purposes ia the greatest mo uoply that ever existed ; it destroys a hundred and fifty thouaand lives, and costs a billion and a half dollars an nually; sends misery, poverty, crime and heartache broadcast among the peo ple; it ia the product of Democrat and Republican rule, a damning blot upon civilization, a sin against God and ought to be made a crime against humanity and driven from the face of the earth. The Prohibition party is the only party that dares fight this mightieat curse of the world. Here we are and here we come to stay. From this hour let no fusion, no deals, no compromises be our motto. Let our platform be so broad, just, clear, comprehensive that all who lovo God or home or country can join the procession now rea ly to move on to victory." The speech was frequently interrupted by enthusiastic applause. The temporary rules reported by the national committee provided that only delegates present should vote. It was objected that this would disfranchise the distant States, and alter a hard fight the rules were amended to allow dele gates present to cast the full vote of the State. The roll of States was called and the names of members of the standing committees announced. Pending re ports from the committees on creden tials and permanent organization the convention took a recess till 4 p. m. Miss Frances Willard was in favor of withdrawing the Prohibition presiden tial candidate should the People's party put up a candidate satisfactory to the executive committee of the Prohibition ists. It is evident the convention is against her on this proposition, how ever. K.rnnr-'H Hoom Asuumlnc a llaauilful Jloy Hue. Omaha, June 211 The boom for Sena tor Stewart as the nominee for the Peo ple's party has taken an impetus. Some one has sh iwn where, previous to the old party nominations, Senator Stewart said : "If Cleveland and Harrison are nominated the electoral vote of Nevada and all the silver States will go to the independents." More than this, it is announced today positively by friends of Senator St wart that he would accept the nomination. Many were and will be surprised to know that there is a tight against Weaver in his own dele gation. Whether the fight will be strong enough to injure Weaver's chances is not yet known.

Omaha, June 29 There is a decided Gresham feeling among the labor unions of this city and GreBham talk can be heard wherever laboring men are gathered together, and the mention ol the Judge's name is the signal !or praises. Greaham sentimentisespecially strong in the Typographical unions of Omaha, South Omaha, and Council Bluffs. Printers, aa a rule, are rather independent in their political views, and this year they will be more so than usual, because of the peculiar conditions of the campaign. "We can scarcely hope to elect Gresham," said a labor unionist, "but he may become to labor what Fremont was to the Republican party the man who blazed that path through the wilder ness." A member of the Omaha Typograph ical Union said : "A more radical Re publican than I am does not live, but I cannot go for Raid. It was an insult to union labor and a direct slap to the nnion which guarantees me a livelihood and a decent burial. I am one of a great many in Omaha who will not vote for Reid ; but we will vote for Gresham." la tola Country to Look After Faiuoue Fugltivea from Jaatloe. New York, June 29 Inspector Fred Jarvis, one of the shrewdest of the Scot land Yard detectives, is in this city, presumably on important business for the British police authorities. He ar rived on the Cunarder Umbria on Sat utday, and on Monday he called on Superintendent Byrnes. Yesterday he was closeted for a long time with Chief Inspector Steers, De tective Sergeants McCloskey and Crow ley being specially assigned to assist Inspector Jarvis in whatever mission brought him to this country. I.. .. Anrw .t.ni r.. spector Jarvis was here simply on a visit to his tattier-in-law, wno is a wen known resident of Yonkers. Neither Byrnes or Inspector Steers would dis cuss the nature of the business which Jarvis is doing here. It was learned, however, that In spector Jarvis has been sent here to trace the career in tins country ol Thomas Neill. aliaa Cream, who is un der arrest in London for the poisoning of two young women with strychnine, and who is also charged with having at tempted to blackmail several notable persons, among them the son of William Henry Smith, the English cabinet min ister, by charging them with having poisoned the girls. Neill was at one time a resident of Saratoga, N. Y. Another part of the mission of Jarvi9 is said to be looking after the move ments of William Henry Hurlburt, the litterateur, formerly a resident of this city, subsequently of London and at present believed to be in Mexico with his wife. He is a fugitive from justice and a warrant is out lor his arrest for perjury alleged to have been committed in the matter of the famous Wilfred Murray letters.

Caspian sea has been ordered to watch an anina leavin? r-ersian Dorta. ine quarantine stations in the Trana-Cas pian territory have been increased in numbera and a week has been added to the quarantine. Imports of food are subjected to strict medical examination. Everything known to medical science will be done to stamp out the scourge, In Dzisak, Turkestan, 130 died in four days. The epidemic prevails in a more virulent form at Waahka, in the Trans Caspian territory. Brandy, BUgar and tea are daily distributed to the troops. The bars that the disease would invade Euroueau Russia have been realized. and already several hundred cases are reported this side of the frontier. The i uhabitants and troops along the frontier are panic stricken. The wealthy classes are seeking safety in night. It is re ported cholera has appeared at Tsar its in, on the Volga. If true, the scourge is almost certain to ravage the famine-stricken provinces. Officers have been dispatched to Ta.irit sin and Tifiia with full author ty to adopt all measures to arrest the spread of cholera through the railway traffic. The scourge is abating 'at Meshed. The official reports say there were 374 deaths out of 512 attacked during the month of June over a wide area. This is not alarming especially in view of the rate of mortality. Vienna, June 29 Germany and Aus tria are acting in concert to prevent the entrance of cholera. Professor Drasche, of the Vienna sanitary board, who has been studying cholera for thirty years, thinks it improbable that the disease will spread beyond Russia, even if it gets a foothold there. He says in other countries a bad sanitary Bystem like th.U which obtains in l.ussia, has be come a thing of the past. a id See-. U taleru eu n-y I vaula Villi nl Fnlallttee lienor ed Philadelphia, Pa., June 28 A ter rific storm passed over Eastern Penn sylvania last night and in many sections it assumed the proportions of a cloud burst. In Reading the streets were flooded, several houses were struck by lightning and a number of persona were more or less hurt. In Cheater county the Btorm waa the worst in 20 years. Houses in all parts of the county were unroofed, many were struck by lightning and at least a score of head of live stock were killed. At Crum Linn, a car of a train on the P. W. & W. was struck by lightning while in motion, tne baggage master, William Lewis, of Chester, being ren dered unconscious and will probably die. A newsboy, the only other occu pant of the car, was knocked down, but he will recover. From reports received from all over the eastern part of the State, it looks as though the damage to crops will be immense. There is a rumor that half a dozen lives have been lost near Hamburg, Brooks county, but it cannot be verified. Fred K. Howard of Filth and Cork streets, Philadelphia, and Miss Emma Lewis, of 3,744 Haverford street, were out boating opposite Lancaster when the storm raged. Their boat was cap sized. Howard helped the girl to get bold of the upturned boat, and then sank back exhausted and was drowned. Miss Lewis waa saved. At Chester the streets and cellars wore flooded and a circus tent was blown down. Thia caused a panic and half a dozen people were hurt. Religion Drives a Qirl to Suioide. Vancoiivkr, B. C, June 28 On Sun day night a young lady very neatly dressed in black and wearing a pretty light colored bonnet, came to Mount Pleasant Hill, and after standing. on the bridge over False creek until no one else waa near, deliberately stepped under the rail and dropped into the water. Until late last evening her identity was unknown. Then it was discovered that Edith Edgar had been missing since Sunday night and that the description of the figure and clothes of the suicide tally with hers.' She was somewhat of a religious enthusiast and that is blamed for the desire for her death. All at tempts to find her body were in vain, and it is thought it has been c rried away by the tide. An Kxpreee Thief Miaaea tba Train and la C i iig-lit Denneb, Colo., June 27 The arrest of E. J. Ryan, who is wanted in Wash ington, D. C, where he robbed the United Statie Express Company of $50,000 last Tuesday night, was a clever piece of work on the part of Chief De tective bam Howe, who seized Jtvan as he stepped from the Rio Grande train. When arrested he had on his person $3,250, and he states that $41,000 is on deposit in Pittsburg. After committing thecrimeRyan went to Pittsburg where he placed $41,000 in the Safe Deposit & Trust C'o.'s vault. The next heard of him was at Kansas City wb .'re he boarded the Missouri Pacific train, for Denver. His peculiar actions attracted the attention of the Pullman conductor who judged Ryan to be a spotter. Once when he opened his va iae, the conductor noticed a large roil of currency with the express company's wrappers. At Pueblo Ryan got off the tram and failed to get on as it left. His traveling cap and grip were left in the seat. This was at 9 o'clock in the morning. The con ductor took the Batchel and cap to the Pullman office in the Denver Union De pot and went to Detective Howe'i office where he told his story. The detective knew at once that it as the man he had hoped but hardiy expected to meet. He went at once to the depot and watched all trains from Pueblo. At 7:30 o'clock tonight his man lelt the Rio Grande train and went to the Pullman office, got bis grip and started up town. At this point he wag intercepted and at police headquarters he admitted his guilt aud told where the money might be found. Iowa Bepub iomiia.

June 29 Among the impor tant resolutions to be discussed by the Chambers of Commerce congress ia the following: The Winnipeg (Manitoba) Board oi Trade will move that it is the opinion of this congress that the time has come or is close at hand when the people of Great Britain can with confi dence look to the colonies and depen dencies of the empire for that portion of I their breadatuna which they nnd it is necessary to import from year to year. The rapid development oi the grain pro duction of Canada, India and Australia, during the past ten years clearly indi cates that these countries will soon have annually an export surplus of grain in excess of the annual import demand of the British and it will be altogether unnecessary for the latter to look for supplies to foreign countries, especially those whose tariff is so framed aa to strike specially at the trade interesta of Great Britain and the British colonies. That tins congress sees the best method of securing this end by the sys tem in the mother country of tariff dis crimination against the grain and other food products of foreign nations and in favor of the import of such goods from the colonies and dependencies and sim ilar discrimination by the colonies and dependencies in connection with the tariff on other goods required lo be im ported by them. That this congress favors such movement, and believes its enforcement would serve as a check upon the national selfishness which at the present time seems to inspire many nations in framing their tariff laws, that its enforcement would prove a commer cial counter irritant, which would, in a comparatively few years, practically force the great nations oi the world into a much freer system of trade iuterc jurse than now exists between them. Similar resolutions, favoring a tariff retaliation againat the United States were presented by the chain oers of com merce of Montreal, Toronto and Regina N. W. T. The Clumber of Commerce, of Trinadad, British Weft Indies, de clares the McKinley law favorable to the East Indies, and says the general feel ing is that every reasonable effort be made to retain the United States mar ket as the best yet found lor the princi pal Btaple sugar. A delegate oi the Regina Board of Trade will offer the following: Re solved, that the Board of Trade of Re. na, N. VV. T., would heartily favor the extension of commerce and trade upon a preferential basis throughout all parts of the British empire, and it would be of higheat collective and individual ad vantage. Further, that the provisions of any foreign treaty imposing limita tions upon the full development, of trade between Canada and other parts of the British empire should be ut onoe abro gated. In advocating the above, we wish it understood while we desire free trade with the British empire we have no desire to interiere now or at any time with the fiscal or political liberty at present enjoyed by self-governing colonies, and we believe if such scheme could be carried out in the near future it would be a just retaliation to the United States for the recent legislation effecting trade retaliations on Great Britain and Canada with the United States. Lobster Industry Destroyed. St. Johns, June 29 The lobater fac tory of James Houlahan, at Derry Head Cave, Bonn bay, on the coast, haa been raided by the British warship Buzzard. The boiler and boats were removed and the factory woodpile burned. The war ship then suddenly left. The lobster business at that point is now destroyed. A disastrous forest fire is raging in the districts about Renews and Bay Bull. Two families at the former place have been rendered homeless by the fire. Dropped Too Far. Fort Smith, Ark., June 28 John E. Thornton was hanged in the United States jail for the murder at Kreigs, I. T., of his daughter, Laura Mornie, in a tit of drunkenness. He made a confes sion on the scaffold. The head was al most torn from the body bv the fall, the arteries were broken, and blood spurted out forming a sickening spectacle. Itepubllc ina at Work lu Inillaua and Maw Vork. Fokt Wayne, June 28 The opposition to Chase tried to delay organization, claiming that there was a large number of delegates present who con d not be seated, but Chairman Gowdy claimed that organization was the first thing in order, and announced Hon. C. W. Fair banks as temporary chairman. On tak ing the chair, Fairbanks delivered a tell ing speech dealing with protection and reciprocity and the united party in In diana. Recess was then taken till 1 p. m. On reassembling the platform was adopted. The platform indorses tiie Minneapolis platform; eulogizes Harri son's administration; com mends the ticket; denounces the Democratic party of the State for gerrymander of the con gressional and legislative districts; for running the State into debt, unneces sarily increasing taxation, and for par tisan, cruel, iicompent management; favora the law compelling the use of safety car couplers on all railroaJs ; in dorses all pension legislation of congress recommends the establishment of a State soldiers' home in connec tion wi h the State department G. A. R. where all ex-soldiers, their wives, and widows may be cared for to the end that the veterans and their wives need not be separated in their declining years. The platform also pays a tribute to the memory ol the late Alvin P. llovey, and extends sym pathy to Blaine and his family in their recent bereavement. Chase was then put in nomination for Governor and several seconding speeches were made. Chase waa nominated on the first ballot. WILL FIOHT PKETTV BOON.

THEY OFTEN CARRY THE HOD rhey Carre Wood, M tka L. ioi, Act aa Barber and lru;a-i4ta, and Work lu Telephone Oltioea, But Hare not Vet Leai-nail In He Typewritera. Cecite Ooh'l in Curlstian Union. 1 llod-carriera of the weaker sex stand at the bottom of the social ladder in Sweden. These sturdy women cairy loads of bricks on scaffoldings. One Swedish woman owns a number of apartment houses and a palatial resi dence. She frankly acknowledges that she started her career as a hod-carrier, and made her fortune by prudent in vestment of savings and successful spec ulation in real estate. She prides her self on having become wealthy by her own enort, and her children take pleas ure in spending the money by united effort. Another kind of open-air business is pursued by the market women (torg- gummor). Summer and winter, rain or shine, you see them at their post, keep ing their feet dry in a tub. No sem blance of the human form divine could lie detected in the huge bundle of shawls emerging from the tub. "Torg gumman" is a shrewd business woman, endowed with a kindly disposition and a lair share of mother wit. But should a customer haggle or criticize her stock of gingerbread, molasses loaves, apples, nuts, horseradish and crude candy she will hurl such a shower of abusive epi thets after the offender as would grieve the recording angel. More than one market woman has been found out de fraying a gifted boy's college course by a life of the hardest work and constant self-denial, exnectinz no reward bevond tlm mul ivalinn nf har iila.il ilrniim tn ana her boy one day in a pulpit of the State Church preaching the Word of God. Washerwomen and scrubbing-women constitute the army of professional kneelers in the service of cleanliness, which is aaid to rank next to godliness. These workers of the glib tongues and crimson arms may be seen any clay kneeling on floating bridges, and be laboring clothes with a wooden imple ment, reminding of a cricket bat. In winter, when lakes and canals are frozen the kneelers have a hole cut in the ice, and, nothing daunted, they rime their garments out-of-doors, regardless of tem perature. The professional scrubbing-wonian pays weekly visits to homes without carpets. Her appearance, which ladies accept as a necessary evil, interfere with a man's home comfort, and pro duces on him the same effect as a red rag on a turkey gobbler. Sweden manufactures aud exports safety matches, and crowds of women are employed in this business, which in jures their health in some departments. Quite numerous are women carvers, plying chisels and grooving tools on wooden panels or household articles, workng out geometric designs or Scan dinavian runic coils in low relief. In the famous Swedish slojd work, com prising cabinet making, turning and carving, women prove themselves fully as skilled as men. Then there are the lace makers, pur suing the industry founded by Saint Birgitta in the convent of Vadstena more than five hundred years ago. Busy bobbins by the scores rattle to and iro on the lace pillows. Patient is the women's labor, dainty the work, long the hours but pitifully snni.l the re muneration. Women hair-dressers and barbers are by no mean scarce. The latter crop many a Samson's lion mane; they lather and scrape men's bearded faces with no more ado than if they were passing an article through the various processes ol the laundry. Cooking has forever been conceded to woman as being her distinctive sphere. In Sweden the fine art of plain cooking holds a high standard of excellence. The person in charge of meals on board an English steamer is always a woman, who controls a stall of neat waitresses. It takes no small amount of business capacity and professional skill to run such a department to general satisfac tion in crowded quarters. At railroad stations where trains stop for refreshments women jrovide trav elers with warm, well-cooked, well served dinners in four courses soup, fish, roast, dessert at the fixed price of one krona (twenty-eight cents), without extra charge lor the Bide-table dainties (ainorgasbord). where travelers partake of a preliminary meal. When a Swedish hostess prepares for a party at her house, ehe may order ice cream and dessert from the confection er's, but she generally depends for the solid diBhea on an expert female cook (kokfru), who fills engagementa fur private spreads. VVhon the menu ia settled and provisions marketed, the ex pert arrives and has full sway of the kitchen, enlisting the services of the regular cook, who is eager to learn the higher mysteries of the profession. Be tween the two female powers the spread will be made an exhibition of master pieces of culinary art. In country communities the trained and licensed midwife takes entire charge of normal confinements; only in alarming cases they call in a doctor. The quaint old Swedish expression calls tier jordegumma" the old woman of the earth, who ushers the little child into this earthly existence. As for trained hospital nurses and Sisters of the Red Cross, they rank de servedly high among the noblest busi ness women of Sweilen. Patronized by the peasantry in out-of-the-way places, we find the "wise old woman," klok gumma, still held in high esteem. She is an unlearned botanist and druggist, cures minor ailments with herb teas and poultices, and often or forms Bimple surgical operations. The iateBt departure in woman's w.irk is the opening of the druggist's trade to any woman who will lake a thorough course of pharmacy and successfully pass the State examinations. In telegraph and post offices under government control many women fill subordinate positions without great re sponsibility. Their wages are far below those of ttie male employes, who alone have the stimulating prospect of ad vancement, with increase in salary and a pension in old age. The telephone stock companies em ploy a goodly young staff of women workers, recruited anew when their ranks are thinned by marriage. The day of typewriters and steno graphers in the city offices has not vet dawned in Sweden, where business nev er is so rushing as not to give time for correspondence in handwriting. Many ladies who write neatly and legibly make their living by copying legal pa pers for the courts of justice, or fill posi tions as clerks in banks and insurance offices. There are women compositors and bookbinders. The irrepressible female book agent, however, does not yet ex ist in Sweden, and her style of work would nnd no sympathy in shrinking Swedish womanhood. A school of horticulture has quite lately been opened with a view to pre pare women gardeners and florists to coax forth blossoms under the very nose ot grim Boreas in the subdued Northern daylight. Swedish school teachers and govern esses by the thousands work faithfully at an averse yearly salary of $200, and a poor "school-marm" has to pay rev enue taxes to government and commu nity on her pittance ol a salary. Women have recently been elected as trustees of school boards in the city of Stockholm. The Swedish universities, Upaalaand Lund, opened their portals to women over 15 years ago, and have sent forth many a doctor ot medicine or pnuosopny ol the gentler sex. So long as the pulpit and the bar are closed to women they find it unpractical to study theology and law as mere accomplishments. The "Central Institute" of Stockholm, where anatomv and Ling's 80-called "Swedish movements" are taught, ad mits women as well aa male students. Lady graduates of thia famous institu tion practice their prolession in various cities ol the Union. Lady artists in Sweden need not be ashamed of their work, and many young girls earn their daily bread by decora tive art work ot exquisite execution. Swedisli musicians and singers of Jenny Lind's sex abound in Sweden, and well trained lady quartettes go forth to de- ngnt loreign audienceB with Swedish folk song. There are able ladv teachers ol vocal and instrumental music, lady organists ami cnoir leaders, in uillerent parts of the country. This winter a bill was introduced in the Legislature asking permission for women to hold office as sextons of the State church. Women lecturers are few and far be tween ; chiefly on Salvation army and temperance platforms. Swedish women seem aa yet tongue-tied in public, and seldom puBsess the gift oi gab even in private ; and Swedish men, who are poor public speakers themselves, hold, in their conservatism, with St. Paut in his enjoir.uient that women should keep their peace in the assembly. The dramatic stage prides itself justly on having actresses of unquestionable merit and blameleBS character, and the medal i'ro Uteris et Artibus has been awarded to Swedisli ladv tragedians. If women journrlists are still in the minority among contributors to the daily press which, by-the-by, devotes no column to the specia interests of women, as American papers are' known to do Swedish women have come to the front in literature, holding their own aa magazine writers, poets, novelisls, and playwrights; and literary talent in woman commands respect and admira tion in the far north. In this department pioneer's work was done by Miss Fredrika Bremer, the little, warm-hearted, quaint spinster. whom Hawthorne liked to a benevolent fairy godmother of the French tales. She labored to her dying day for the evolution of Swedish womanhood, show in, in her unassuming way, by the power of her example, that a woman may develop and use her mental gifts without losing any of the true womanly qualities whose beauty outlasts the rav ages of time. t'lia Y.iung rluuan-l Will Mle an -the Keault ef the Hncouuler.

PiTTsiit'iid, Pa., June 30 The general agreement entered into between Senator Quay and Chris Magee has been broken and the battle for supremacy in the Re publican parly of the State, of which the defeat of Dolamater lor governor in 1890 was an incident, wi'.l be taken up again. The two leaders have been drifting apart for some time. Ihe positive at titude of each against the other at Min neapolis strained the bonds to the breaking point. Senator Quay's per sistent opposition to the confirmation of George W. Miller for internal revenue collector for the Twenty-second district is expected to be the last straw. M.igee'a paper, the Pittsburg Times, this morning printed a Washington dis putch, in which these words were used: "It is asserted that should Mr. Quay attemp , by his opposition to Mr. M.l- ler s confirmation, to continue the as sumption of a right in the political affairs of the State in which he haa in recent yours received a severe rebuke, he may expect to receive a reprimand direct, instead of through this man, as in the gubernatorial election of 1890."

Berlin, June 29 Public feeliuz haa been aroused in an almost unprecedent ed degree by the report that the Kaiser lias directed the minister oi imperial justice to make inquiry regarding the recent reported interview with Prince Bismarck with a view to prosecute the ex-chancellor. The Tagblatt says : The die is cast. Prince Bismark haa attained the object for which he has Btriven during the last two years and has forced the government to take up the gauntlet he has so often thrown at its feet. With the full weightof his his torical name he exposes chancellor to the eyes of foreign nations and discred its him by means of reckless utterances. All patriots will regard the procedure with aching hearta. Chancellor Von Capri vi's question whether Uisinark's conduct is patriotic will be answered by a majority of the nation with a nega tive. Vissische Zeitung says: A single false step on the part of the government in the contest now openly embarked upon may lead to a tragedy. No matter what the opinion alwut Bismarck may be, it will not be a Bismarck tragedy. We merely hope the government will not execute its threat to take action against the crettor of German union. National Zeituug, hopes the patriot Ism ol Prince Bismarck will lead him to put an end to the painful spectacle of his attack on the government. It attributes his bitter words to disappointment at the refusal of the Austrian kaiser to grant him an audience. Mary Helped Her Get Her Dlvoroe autl Than She Hobbed Mary.

San Antonio, June 30 A letter from La Salle county, 80 miles southwest of San Antonio ou the Arkansas Interna tional aud Great Northern railway, gives a picture of the drought and desolation in that section. In three years it has not rained a drop. The prairies, once carpeted with rich grasses, are as bare aa a billiard table. The streams have gone dry. There ia no water anywhere. For any distance as far as the eye can reach there is not a spot of green. The sun, reflected from the white earth, makes the glare and heat almost unbearable. Deer, turkeys and other wild game have lelt. Even the familiar jack-rubbit has disappeared. All the cattle and sheep have been sold and shipped into other Slates. Many of the Mexicans are cowboys or soldiers. They have no means of sub sistence and some of them have tried to farm it, but the seed sown two years ago remains unsprouted in the ground. From LaSalle county alone 72,000 head of sheep have been removed. The citizens today appealed to Governor Hogg to furnish the starving Mexicans transportation to cotton districts where they may find work. An earnest call for food has been issued.
