Kro deJaxekio, Airil 8. The provis
'nol government has decreed all the great
(pnar measures so long demanded by the
t"ople. the necessity of which caused tlie
'volution of JXovemlter 13, lbc9, such as

Eussia's Improvements will Set the Chi

Xi:w York, April S. A Shanghai cor
respondent writes as follows:
"X have it fiom the highest authority
that the trans-Siberian railway will soon
unite the possessions of the car from the
Euxine to "the Pacific with bonds of steel.
The line will be begun in earnest this
spring. Great preparations are being
made in tlie collection of material at the
various points along the road and the
route is at present overrun with
Russian engineering officers, who are
working under the direction of General
Anneiikoff and the governors of the prov
inces of Asuria ami eastern Siberia. A
traveler who recently came over tlie route
assured me that Baron von Rosen at
Irkutsk, with whom he had a long talk, is
sanguine of being able to commence opera
tions about April next and further that it
is the intention to liegiuthe line at Tomsk,
htretinsk and Yalidvotock simultnueous
lj. What an enormous adnntage this
railway will give to Russia in the power
to concentrate her t roups at any point on
the Chinese frontier a glance-ut the map of
Asia will show. With the Russian rail
way along tlie northern border and lapping
around her alleged vassal stati Core.i
there is nothing for China to keep peace
with her dreaded northern neighbor. For
this reason I say that the Russians are the
gieatest civilizing and progressho in
riuence upon China. When the Musco
vites commence their railway the sound of
their picks will be promptly echoed back
by those of tlie Chinese armies on tlie
counterline. The people in Pekin are fully
alive to the seriousness of what their situa
tion will be w lien this .binenau railway is (
uii fait accompli. .Now they are meieiy
holding back until they aie compelled to
commence similar operations on their own
account by the convincing argument of
looking to their own pieservation.

Chicago. 111., April s. About fifty non
union carpenters from the surrounding
towns went to work this morninif but they
we o visited by the strikers and labored
with, with the result that they quit work.
The struggle now seems to be narrowed to
the question of recognition or non-recognition
of the union. The carpenters de
mand 40 cents per hour, eight hours to
constitute a dajs work and tlie yearly set
tlement upon a sealeof wages by conference
iM'tween the builders and the "Carpenter's
union. The liosse' are willing t concede

cents per hour, which the men would ac
cept as a compromise: but the bosses also-
Jutely refuse to recogniz the union and

"Pt " reeogmtion. ...
rhere was a hitch this morntag in the
negotiations for a settlement of the
plumber's strike, as the juniors ob-
j jected to a reduction in their de
mand for an advance of 50 cents per day
in their Mages to '25 cents The arbitration
committees were in session during the
rorenoon and this afternoon signed the
articles of settlement. The Msreeniunt is
to run for two ears from February 1 last,
journeymen to receive $3.60 instead of 3.75
per day for which they struck anil juniors
to get "25 cents per day advance except in
shops where it is customary to gram them
an annual advance in wages. Tiie men
are well satisfied with the terms readied
and work will be resumed tomorrow.

But no Patalities.
Chicago, 111.. April S. Both the "West

village of Prophetstown, in which fifty
people were reported to have been killed
by a cyclone, are still prostrated. At the

however, a brief dispatch was received be-foi-e
the wires went down which said that
the town had been visited by a severe wind
storm, which carried the station at that
point from its foundation and wrecked a
dispatch said nothing about there being
any lo-sof life.
The town contains about 1,000 inhab
itantsand is located about forty miles from
Burlington, on a branch of the "Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy road.
Chicago, 111., April 8. The reported loss
of life at Prophetstown is unfounded. A
dispatch just received by the aeneral su
perintendent of the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railroad from the railroad agent at
Prophetstown is as follows: "A cyclone
struck Prophetstown about 7 o'clock last
evening blowing the depot from its foun

number of buildings were blowii down in
the village and a number of persons hurt."

damage has been done, three houses, an
elevator and seven barns have been
wi ecked, but there is no loss of life The
storm struck the town from the southwest
at 7 last evening and reached its worst in
about ten minutes.
The rainfall was about two inches and
the hail fell very heavy. The storm was
local, no damage being done outside of
this place so far as cm be learned. The
hailstorm extended east but was lighter
in fall. The damage to property of all
kinds will not exceed .WO.OOO.

New York, April S. The defalcation

reach a much larger figure than has been
anticipated. Who will be the assignee is
still a matter of conjecture.

and a negres. All the victims had been
decapitated and their heads were missing.
Their bodies were embalmed and liad evi

they were found for a long time. The

At a recent banquet a bright young the
ologian told a very good story on his respect
ed father, who is an old and tried member ot
the cloth. As is well known, the theologies;
Students, before they bogiu the formal yroc
tica of theology, are required to preach a ser
mon before an nssembbige of tho gray beard
of the church who have pounded pulpit cush
ions for decades. This is a inoat trying or
deal for the students, and they go through it
mtb palsied knees and quivering lip. TV
young theologian in question was well known
to tne ministers of the denomination, as hs.
father had been of their number for years,
and, as the old gentleman was naturally
proud of his boy, the young man's effort was
listened to with interest by all present. To
tell the truth, the old gentleman was a bi;
disappointed, but the young man was dread
fully embarrassed m tne presence of his eld
ers, and did not do hiniseif justice. As ha
walked slowly home with his father the oid
gentleman said, af tera loap; pause: "Charlie,
that was a regular schoolboy essay of yours."
The young man was about to make some ex
cuse when one of the dominies who had beeu
present walked up behind them, slapped the
boy on the back and said: "Charlie, you're
evidently a chip of the old block." The old
gentleman mado no further criticism of his
son's first effort. Chicago Herald.
Iuterccdiug: with a Judge. ,
A young fellow who worked in the same
office with me and was generally liked by ail
of us unhuppdy fell into evil courses, and at
last the law got hold of him. He was fried
and convicted, but sentence was deferred for
a few days. In the interval I went to sea
the judge and tokl liini ail the good I could
about the joung man. I laid particular
stress upon his brightness and ability and the
promising career which his crime had blasted.
The judge listened to all I had to say pa
tiently. Then he asked me: "He is on intel
ligent, well educated fellow, is he?" I as
sented. "I am very glad you have told mo this,"
tho judge remarked ; "very glad. I was go
ing to give bun four years.''
So I went aw ay well satisfied. Tlie pris
oner was brought up for sentence, and the
judge, after a few remarks about the prison
er's evident intelligence and ability to tell
right from wrong, sentenced him to six years
in the penitentiary, tlie limit ot tbe law.
Since that day my services as an interces
sor with the judiciary have not been in de
mand, strange to say. Interview in Pitts

To the east of and adjoining the colony
farm La Logia lies a Mayo Indian settlement,
Mayocoba, whero live on a tract of perhapi
2,000 acres some 300 descendants of tho
branch of the Aztecs called Mayos, now in
termixed with a considerable percentage of
Spanish blood. Most of the land is uueleared,
a few acres being all the land required tor
cultivation by the natives, and being all they
can till with the uuciont means uud methods
employed by them.
These people are quiet, docile, honest, un
learned, and, though more industrious than
the northern Indians, are by no means enter
prising. Their needs are few, their surround
ings the most primitive. Their carts, their
cooking utensils, their plows, their ox yokes,
their contrivances for spuming and weaving,
their water jars everything about them is
as in the time of Christ. The native civiliza
tion here is like Palestine's 2,000 years ago,
Drugs Are KxpeutWe.
Some medicinos are very expensive. At a
recent exhibition of the American Public
Health association in Brooklyn one manufac
turing chemist exhibited a case cf bottles,
about enough to fill an ordinary barrel, tho
total value of which was over $30,000. Tho
most costly drug in tho case was labeled
"llomatropine hydrobromate, cryst." It
was all in one bottle, containing six pounds,
and w as valued at 12,000. or at tho rate of
?2,100 a pound. Tins drug is an alkaloid,
artificially prepared from atropine. It, ef
fects are similar to those of atropine, hut not
so lasting. It is a preparation of belladonna
and is chiefly used in the treatment of tho
eyes, and always in minute quantities. It
exjwmds the pupils of the eye. American

The old negro who recognized Chief Justice
Chase as Old Greenbacks had a counterpart
in the Confederate army, according to a story
in The Baltimore American:
A cavalryman who had never seen Jeffer
son Davis met him face to face in Richmond,
and recognized him at once from his portrait
upon the Confederate postage starniw.
He stopjKxl him, therefore, and in a silly, j
intoxicated manner said:
"Are you Mr. Davis'"
'I am, sir," was tlie dignified reply.
