some fatally, and property losses ag
gregating $1,000,000 is now given as
an estimate of the damage done by
Sunday's cyclone in Marshall, Nemaha

General Indications Point to a Heavy
Yield. ' -
Washington, May 21. The foreign
statistics gathered by the agricultural
department show the crop conditions
throughout the year. The summary
is as follows:
Great Britain The crop outlook
everywhere is good, and promises a
harvest about two weeks earlier than
usual. This would diminish the im
ports for the remainder of the current
year by about 5,000,000 bushels.
France With normal weather until
harvest, the wheat crop will more than
suffice for home requirements. A sur
plus for export is confidently piedioted
by Frenoh agricultural journals and
statisticians. Some expect that it will
amount to 40,000,000. This quantity
would affect prioes, especially if the
French government should pay a boun
ty on exports..
Austria-Hungary Weather favor
able and crops promise well.
' Roumania The, cold' weather in
April retarded the crops, but the out
look is generally promising. ' v
Russia Excellent prospects of a orop
above the average in quantity and
quality are generally reported. The
unfavorable Maroh weather in the
south is found to have done no serious
damage. Spring sowings have been
completed under good conditions.
A Traveler Who Thinks Its Completion
- Certain.
; San Francisco, May 21. E. H.' Hin
ton, long and favorably known as a
traffic official of the Gould system of
roads, and at present general western
agent of the Panama Railroad Com
pany, with offices in this city, returned
home yesterday, after a six months' so
journ in Colon and the Central Ameri
can republics. Mr. Hinton spoke of
the work on the canal as follows:
"Several weeks ago I made several
trips upon the oompleted portions of
the canal. About two-thirds of its
length between Colon and Panama is
completed, but that does not mean that
two-thirds of the work towards finish
ing the big enterprise has been oom
pleted. The Culebra, cut midway be
tween Colon and Panama, and the
summit of the elevation to be overcome
in order to complete the canal, repre
sents a vast amount of work and great
expense. About 1,000 men are at
work on this out. ' The oompleted por
tions of the oanal are in good condi
tion and many parts of its bed, because
of the rocky formation, will ' endure
forever. As a layman, I am more con
vinced than ever that the completion
of the oanal is a certainty. It is un
questionably feasible and practicable."
. Arrested for Throwing a Kiss.
Wiohita, Kan., May 21. Mrs. M.
Ashoraft, a widow, has been arrested
on a warrant sworn out by T. A. Faw-
cett, a tailor, who charges that she

Ashoraft says the kisi was meant for
!Mri. Fawcett.
The Czar's Manifesto. ,
London, May 21. The Chroniole's
Berlin correspondent says that the Ber
lin Tageblatt claims that the czar's
manifesto will give amnesty, partial or
oomplete, to Russian prisoners in Si
beria. Those sentenoed to a life of
penal servitude will receive mitigation
of the sentences, and offenders domi
ciled in Siberia will be permitted to
return to any part of European Russia
except St Petersburg and Moscow.
The sentences of those in jail in Eu
ropean Russia for serious offenses will
be ' reduced by one-third. A large
number of minor offenders will be par
doned. Numbers of those who left the
country for political relief will be par
doned, on condition of their taking the
oath of allegiance. The peasantry in
certain poor districts will be exoused
from arrears of orown dues. Even the
Jews will not be forgotten, and the
ill-starred Hebrew agricultural colo
nies at Ekatreinslav will also be ex
oused from arrears.
Blocked With Ice. ,
St. John's N. F., May 20. The Eng.
lish steamer Nimrod has returned from
Green's pond, where, with land in
view, she was jammed in the ice and
blocked sixteen days. She reports that
the whole ooast is blocked with ice and
that all the bays are full of it. Seri
ous destitution exists owing to the in
ability of traders to prooure supplies
from St. John's, navigation being im
possible. The people at many places are eating
their seed potatoes, and at others the
inhabitants are making a general divi
sion of their stores of flour and provi
sions, to make out an existenoe until
supplies are proourable. The blokoade
is having a damaging effect upon the
oodfishery, the fishermen being unable
to begin operations.
