The Reading Refusing Perisha
Buffalo, Aug. 16. The militia regi
ments reached the railroad yards in East
Buffalo at 3 o'clock a. m. and at once
formed a skirmish line on both sides of
the tracks half a mile in length. The
strikers made no demonstrations this
morning, although non-union men had
been put to work. When the attempt is
made to resume work the strikers de
clare they rrill kill the "scabs" regard
less of the militia. It is not believed,
however, that they will be 60 foolhardy
as to resist the troops. More soldiers
will probably be brought here this even
ing. The companies at Utica, Albany
and Oswego are under arms and ready
to march at a moment's notice.
At 1 o'clock a train of non-union switch
men was taken to the Erie yards guarded
by militia. Martial law was proclaimed
and the troops marched down the tracks,
strikers falling back sullenly as they ap
proached. Pickets and sentries were
set out and unauthorized persons are
kept away from the tracks. Up to 3
o'clock there had been no trouble of a

Buffalo, Aug. IB. Grand Master
Sweeny, in an interview, said: "The
strike has spread to Waveriy and will
probably go to Hornellsville and Brad
ford, where the switchmen are dissatis
fied. It has not spread to any of the
other roads in Buffalo. We have come
to an agreement with the Western,
New York and Pennsylvania on a ten-houi-basis,
and will have no trouble
with that road." Sweeny further says
that the Erie and Lehigh switchmen
had been treated badly, their advances
being spurned by those in high author
ity. Refusing Perishable Goods.

proach to a collision between the strik
ers and military that has yet occurred.

Uneasiness Felt in Kansas Because of 'the
Arriral ot Immigrants.
, Topeka, Kan., Aug. 10. Excitement
aas been caused here by the arrival of
many Russians in this state, some of
whom came .from the cholera-infected
district. Thursday last a car load -of
these peoplo were brought to Kansas,
five families stopping in Topeka. The
others went to Piva, Willis county.
Four of the families went from here to
Mayetta, leaving only one family in
Topeka. As these people came from a
region on the Volga, where the cholera
Is now raging, some fear is expressed
by those who know the circumstances
that they bring in their boxed up house

danger is slight, yet there is good reason
to be on the watch, and there would be
a feeling of greater safety if Russian
immigration was stopped until frost

San Antonio, Aug. 16. News has
been received here from Macaule, this

sanguinary tragedy occurred there.

and John Pohls on one side and Davis
and Burton Brown on the other. When
the convention adjourned the battle
began. All four men were armed with
pistols and bowie knives. Simultan
eously they began firing, and when
pistols were empty they closed in with
their knives and fought in a most des
perate manner. After they fell to the
ground they kept on slashing one an
other until two were dead and the
other two bo badly injured that they
IOWA INDIANS ARE CRAZY.
They Have the Messiah Idea and Leave
Pond Creek, I. T., Aug. 10. The
Messiah craze has broken out among
the Iowa Indians. So extensive is the
craze among them that they have left
their allotments, returning to tribal
forms and usages, claiming that the
coming Messiah-will not receive them
unless they do this. The boomers in
that vicinity, it is feared, may take
possession of the lands which the crazy
Indians have abandoned. And if they.
do it will require -moiu than -aSo taccpr
of regulars to drive them out Ihe
country is wild and broken and affords
easy grounds for claim jnmping. Word
has been received at Fort Reno that the
soldiers will probably return this week.
Posted Chicago Prices.
, New York, Aug. 10. The long looked
for grain prices from the Chicago board
of trade were posted for the first time
on the Consolidated Stock and
petroleum exchange. During the
forenoon an active business was
constantly in progress and up
wards of 152,000 bushels of wheat
and corn changed hands. Pork was'
also a conspicuous figure in the trading
and options of September and January
were active. The handling of grain
and pork will be through the clear
ing house under the head of "pe
troleum," that being the only other
optional commodity traded in. The de
liveries will be made through warehouse
receipt at Chicago or a designated place
at the time of the transaction. Grain
will probably be listed in the event of
the success of the present experiment.

thick, as the great glacial field of the
Alps. The glaciers are located about
twenty-five miles southwest ofShoup

Chicago', Aug. 16. Chairman Cald

implication of the Atchisou company to
make 'a round trip rate of $5 between
Chicago and Kansas City on the occa

man grant the authority asked, having
learned upon investigation that a rate
of $5 hsvs actually been quoted by an in
terested line, and at least one contract
maie at that figure from Chicago. This
rate is to be a selling- and basing rate,
applicable not only to Kansas City, but
tlso-to St. Joseph, Leavenworth and
Atchison. St. Louis" roads are author
ized to use the $5 rate, but from that
point the rate to Leavenworth and re

Tka Wyandotte Line.
Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 16. Jay
Gould may not secure control of the
Kansas .City, Wyandotte and North
western road at all; he will not, at least,
until a big fight, which was begun in
the" district court of Wyandotte county,
Kansas, is settled. He thought he had
the road in his possession. But while
it seemed to be practically so, it has not
yet been formally turned over. The
suit is brought by E. S. W. Drought of
Kansas City, Kan., general manager
of the Northwestern Construction com
pany, to recover $350,000 damages for
breach of contract. The Northwestern
Construction company built the Wyan
dotte.road and still has it on its hands.
A few months ago the company by suit
compelled Jay Gould to comply with a
contract he had made with the company
and take 500,000 of the construction
bonds of the road.
Lumber Bates Beduced.
Chicago, Aug 1. The reduced rates
on lumber to Missouri river points went
into effect. It is now understood that
the new rates are not to be permanent
and that there is a perfect understanding
between the Chicago, Milwaukee and
St. Paul road, which made a reduction
of 3 cents per 100 pounds from Eau
Clare in obedience to the order of the
interstate commerce commission, and
the other roads that made correspond
ing reductions from all points affected
thereby. An official of one of the
western roads said: "ihe rates nave

IOWA ROADWAY CONVENTION
.More to Better the Condition or Roads
Des Moines, Aug. 1G. The state con
rention to be held in tho Y. M. C. A.
building in Des Moines today to devise
means for securing better roads in the
Itate promises to be successful from
every standpoint. It is expected that
nearly 1,000 delegates will be in attend
ance, representing nearly every city and
county in the state. The object for
which the convention is called is a
worthy one and has been discussed at
times for many years. At no time,
however, has so great an interest been
aroused as at present, and it is hoped
that the convention will take such action
after a full discussion of the matter as
will eventually result in something be
ing done to so improve the roads as to
Erevent the inconvenience and loss of
nsiness so frequent in this state.
The most sejious problem for the con
vention will be the matter of raising the
necessary revenue for road building. It
is admitted that the present road laws
of Iowa, in at least this respect, are
about as effective as if there was not a
word about roads on the statutes. Some
regard them as really injurious to the
proper construction of roads in this
Governor Buciiauan of Tennessee in the
Field as nn Independent Candi
date Majors Slay Get It.
Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 16. John P.
Buchanan, governor of the state, in
a lengthy address, announces that he is
an independent candidate for governor,
and asks the votes of all citizens re
gardless of party affiliations. He bases
his candidacy upon allegations that he
has been called upon by a majority of
the rank and file of the party to run;
that he and his friends have been
treated badly by the Democratic
conventions, county and state, and that
he represents the true Jefforsonian De
mocracy, and that the Democratic con
vention, which refused to nominate him,
has renounced the true principles of
Democracy enunciated in former plat
forms. Governor Buchanan's inde
pendent candidacy was expected, and
but little 8urpi-iae" was expressed when
the published anuouncement appeared.
The People's Party meet in state con
vention Thursday next to nominate a
candidate for governor and this fact
hastened Governor Buchanan's an
nouncement, for his independent candi
dacy will be indorsed by tho conven
tion. There are now four candidates for
governor in the state.
Majors May Get It.

A HARD TASKMASTER
Father Bill Daly Arrested for Brutally
Beating Two Boys.
Gravesexd, Aug. 10. W. C. Daly,
known as Father Bill, the groat turfman,
was arrested at his home near here. Hr
is charged with brutally beating Jame
Keefe and William Holohan, two boys
apprenticed to him to be made jockeys.
The boys were so badly bruised that the
justice refused bail and Father Bill had
to sleep in a cell. When the case
came up the boys, aged 12 years, were
put on the stand. The society for
the preTention of cruelty to children
conducted the prosecution and the case
was remanded for a few days, the boys
in the meantime being locked ud as wit
nesses, while Daly was released on bail.
Daly, who brought out McLaughlin.
Garrison, the Lambleys and others, is
reputed to be worth about $400,000. He
is a cruel taskmaster and this is not the
first time he has beaten boyslin his
charge. He used a whaleboned buggy

Some Reflections Induced by tho Cobb
It is fasliionablo to laugh at Mr. Cobb,
of Alabama, but we do not laugh, at the
gentleman. Ho is not by any means the
first man who in that house bear garden
has wondered "Where was I at?' If we
do not mistake, his father used to get
lost there thirty-five years ago, and
after all he seldom or nevor came up
missing. " Mr. Cobb is one of the sort of
men who is not ashamed to take a cup
of beef tea or consomme, bouillon or
coffee during a speech. Bob Toombs
used to havo a glass of raw whisky on
his desk in the senate. Nor was" he one
of tho denying sort. Many more old
timers can be named who would not
have kicked up rusty because Mr. Wat
son or Mr. Anybody had written a book.
The affair is a farce. Mr. Watson
