TO SETTLE RATE TROUBLES,
Western Line, to Hold Meetings in
, s Omaha and Denver.
Chicago, Jan. 3. Another effort is
about to be made to settle the rate
troubles in the West A meeting has
been called of the Montana lines at
Omaha January 2, and if this in any
way succeeds in straightening out the
difficulties, a meeting will be held in
Denver on the following day. This
second meeting will take up the ques
tion of Utah rates, and the differences
between the Union Pacific and the
Denver Rio Grande. The California
lines are having some trouble with their
passenger rates in connection with the
landseers' excursions. . Some of the
land agents who are working up the
business for these excursions have ad
vertised that they will run free sleeping-cars
from Chicago to California.
The roads not engaged in the excur
sions claim the roads which are to
carry the sleepers are in oonnivanoe
with the land agents, while it is assert
ed on the other hand that the lines
running the excursions are receiving
full fare for all the excursionists they
handle. The complaining lines threat
en to take action in the near future
whioh will' even up the rates which
they declare are being out to the extent
of $15 for the free sleepers. ;
, SOLDIERS VS. POLICE.
It All Came About Because of the Sale
of Beer Without a License.
Bridgeport, Conn., Jan. 3. A battle
between soldiers and police occurred in
Saddler's hall last night About thirty
men were seriously injured. The sol
diers were defeated and twenty were
locked up. '" A raiding party went to
Saddler's hall, where the Kosklusko
Guards, a military organization, were
having a dance, to execute a warrant
for the seizure of beer. The soldiers
drew their sabers and drove the officers
from the hall. - A reinforcement of 1 &
policemen was called, and attempted
to enter the hall, but the guards beat
them baok with their sabers. The
police were cut and slashed, and sev
eral seriously injured. The captain
of the guards is soarcely recognizable
from the bumps and cuts on his face.
All the prisoners bear marks of the
fight They were spattered with
blood and their uniforms torn in shreds.
The soldiers jumped on the polioe,
scratched their faces and tore their
hair out by handf uls. After the fight,
five other halls were visited and nearly
100 kegs of beer seized.

window to another, he lost his balanoe
and fell headlong through a skylight,

an unconscious state upon the main
floor of Lipman, Wolfe & Co. 's store.

torney Charles Barry," the Mexican
government has granted to an Ameri
can syndicate the oonoession to build a

REPORT OF THE CHIEF OFCOAST
AND GEODETIC SURVEY. A
General ; Duffield and Mr. King, the
Canadian Represent atlve, Meet r at
Albany and Compare Notes Plain
as If Recorded by Deeds and Maps
Washington, Jan. 4. General Duf
field, chief of ooast and geodetio sur
vey, today presented to the secretary of
state the report on the Alaska boundary,
whioh was agreed on by him and the
Canadian representative, Mr.' King, at
Albany this week. The report will
not be made public until transmitted
to congress, . but it shows a praotioal
agreement between the surveys of the
two governments, jnd may have the
effect of partially quieting the appre
hension of trouble over the boundary.
The greatest difference between the
lines run by the engineers of the two
governments is only six feet and seven
inohes, or fifteen seoonds of longitude.
In view of the two surveys, General
Duffield does not hesitate to express
the opinion that there can be no dis
pute between the United States .and
Canada over the boundary. He said:
"The line is as plain from the treaty
as though it had been recorded by
deeds and maps. " " "
The two commissioners who met at
Albany, had no authority to fix -the
boundary, but only to recommend from
the results whioh had, been reached the
lines to be definitely established. The
ratification of their work remains for
another joint oommittee, and Secretary
Olney will doubtless reoommend to
oongress an act for the appointment of
a commissioner to represent the United
States for this purpose.-. -
General Duffield is confident that the
British can find no grounds upon whioh
to base a claim to the gold fields of the
Yukon river, since a British engineer,
Oglesby, in 1898, after a very careful
observation, marked the banks of .the
Yukon and Forty-Mile creek, where
these streams are crossed by the 141st
meridian, and his marks were verified
by the United States survey;'? The only
possible ground for contention General
Duffield forsees is . furnished by that
phrase of the Russian-British treaty
that at no point shall the boundary be
more than ten marine leagues from the
shore. 'The United States government
interprets this to mean continental
leauges, while England might contend
that ten leagues from the island. ' shore
was ' contemplated a construction
which would deprive the United States
of a valuable strip, of territory, if sus

IN BEHALF OF ARGENTINE.
Senate Asked to Exclude It From the
Workings of the Mew Tariff.
Washington, j'an. 2. Senator Voor
hees has presented to the senate a com
munication from Senor J. V. Domin
guez, charge d'affairs of the Argentine
legation, bearing upon the relations be
tween Argentine and the United States
as affected by the tariff. It relates to
the proposed tariff on wool under the
house revenue tariff bill, and, in order
that there shall not be any interrup
tion of the good feeling now ' existing,
and to avoid disturbing the commercial
relations between the two countries, he
asks whether it could not be suggest
ed, in considering the bill, that the
proposed duty should be made to ap
ply only to countries other than South
American. He says the only importa
tions from South America are compar
atively small, and instances the state
ment of the National Woolgrowers'
Association that their chief oomplaint
is against Australian wools, and sug
gests that all desired ends oould be ac
complished by exempting South Ameri
can countries from the operations of
the bill. He adds: "In this way rela
tions with a sister republio would not
be affected, and the Argentine Republio
would supply, in a moderate degree,
the wants of this market, while that
country could continue to expand her
exports.". . ' '
Dominguez calls attention to the fact
that the prinoipal ' Europeaen nations
admit South Amrioan wool free of duty
and asks how, if oongress desires
friendly and close relations between
this country and other Amerioan states,
it can pass a measure whioh will ex
clude from this market " the chief
produot of one of the South Amerioan
oountries? After some debate the com
munication was referred to the oom
mittee on finance.
A Denial From New York.' "'
New York, Jan. 2. Regarding the
artiole in the Portland Oregonian today
forecasting a possible orisis in the
Northern Paoiflo receivership contro
versy, it is said by looal representatives
of the Northern Paoiflo interests that
the artiole had little basis in faot, and
merely evidenoed the feeling of the
far Western interests concerning the
apparent inability of . the courts to
agree on a single body of receivers for
the system. The hitherto unsuccessful-'
efforts of - the Farmers'- Loan &
Trust Company to effect a settlement
of the existing difficulties, however,
have not destroyed the hope of adjust
ment in the near future, and the plan
now - under discussion is : regarded as
likely to reach a more successful issue.
FORTUNE FOR CAMPBELL.
Ohio's Ex-Governor Said to Have
' "Struck It Rich" in California.
, Columbus, O., Jan. 2. From reli
abble sources it has been ascertained
here that ex-Geovrnor Campbell has
reoently "struck it rioh" in California
gold mines. The information, as it
oomes from Captan Frank Barrett, for
merly of Lancaster, and now - located
in the San Joaquin valley, Cal., is very
' Some years ago Captain Barrett con
cluded to leave Ohio and seek new
fields in the far West. He purchased
a cattle ranoh midway between San
Franoisoo and Los Angeles and settled
there. While there he heard the legend,
whioh had been handed down from the
Indians for half a century, that at a
point in the San Joaquin river, on his
ranoh, there ' was a vast deposit of
gold. The story kwas that in a pool
formed by a natural dam in the San
Joaquin, at the foot of the famous
Gold Gulch, from which many for
tunes had been taken, there were de
posits of the gold which the depth of
the pool had heretofore prevented any
thing like successful working. Lack
of water had prevented the full work
ing of the guloh itself, for the deposits
required placer ' mining, and it was
only when the spring freshets flushed
the valley that evidences of the gold
which had for years been swept to
ward the gulfs were obtainable.
"" Captain Barrett determined to work
that pool, and he returned to Ohio and
organized the Ohio Mining Company,
with $500,000 capital, . and with Gov
ernor Campbell, Allen G. Thurman and
other Ohioans as - stockholders. Gov
ernor Campbell took one-eighth of
the stock. Barrett's plan was to build
another dam at the head of the pool,
change the oourse of the stream, then
drain the first dam and secure its rich
deposits. Professional divers were first
secured to prospect the pool. The re
sult surpassed the wildest hopes. Gold
was brought up to the value of $10 a
pan. men tne construction of the dam
was begun. It was a tedious under
taking and it was only through the
summer drought that progress could
be made. The drainage of the pool
has just begun, but it already promises
to make fortunes for all the stock
TRAINS COME TOGETHER.
Two Persons Killed, Four Seriously and
Two Slightly Injured. '
Cincinnati, Jan. 2. Two passenger
trains oollided at 7:30 tonight on the
Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern rail
way, near Coal City, fourteen miles
from Cincinnati. They were the
Louisville express, whioh left this city
at 7:05 P. M., an the St Louis accom
modation, due here at 7:05, but which
was an hour late. The first known of
the collision here was when the wreck
ing train was sent out about 8 o'clock,
accompanied by physicians, railway
officials and others. The wildest
rumors were current The hospitals
were put in readiness and police head
quarters were promptly equipped for
the care of the injured. When infor
mation was obtained from the scene
it was found that there were two per
sons killed and six injured. Both
engines were totally wreoked. The
combination car of the Louisville ex
press and the express car of the St
Louis train were telescoped.
Coal City is a coaling station on the
road and has no telephone. When the
engines were wrecked they knocked out
a telegraph pole with such force as
to cut off all telegraphio communica
tion. Messengers arriving from the
scene of' the wreck report that all of
the injured have been rescued and are
being cared for. The killed are: Fire
man Wilson, of Louisville express; an
unknown man, buried under the wreok.
' Union Pacific Finances.
New York, Jan.,' 8. The Union
Paoiflo reorganization committee says
that it has received a majority of all
Union division, main line and Kansas
division first mortgage bonds in circu
lation, as -well , as large deposits of
junior bonds, and nearly one-half of
the capital stock. The committee also
announces its intention to proceed
promptly and energetically with gen
eral foreclosures. It extends the time
for deposit of bonds and stocks without
penalty until January 15. Stock
assessments will not be called until the
plan has been declared operative.
The Debs Case.
Cincinnati, Jan. 8. President. E V.
Debs, of the American Railway Union,
came under the jurisdiction of Judge
Taft, of the United States court, dur
ing the great railroad striks of 1894,
and the proceedings are not yet ended.
Today, the demurrer of Debs and his
associate' directors, Howard and Rog
ers, in the contempt proceedings, was
overruled and an order was issued
directing Debs and associates to file an
answer within 10 days. ' Debs may yet
have to endure another trial for con

With but two exceptions, the nature of
the events which go to make up the his
tory of the past year is not startling,
The butchery of thousands of Armenians
by Turks has aroused the European
powers, and at the close of the year active
preparations were in progress which sug
gested the probable dismemberment of
the Ottoman empire. The revolt of
Cubans against Spanish rule was the
next most important affair, and that, too,
was in full sway at I he close of the year.
Spain seems to fruitlessly bend every
energy toward its suppression. Popular
sympathy is largely with the Cubans, and
their success seems not improbable, , In
American politics the year has been ex
citing, and one of the great parties has
suffered such reverses as to leave the
chief executive unsupported in political
faith by a majority in either house of
Congress. A chronological record of
