Berlin, August 16. Emperor William's
vibt to the czar will occur this week. The
czar desired that the emperor should go
straight to St. Petersburg instead of land
ing at Reval, where the Germans continue
strong. The emperor was not left in ig
norance, but having pressed his determi
nation to see Reval, in which town he was
'nterested, he declined to alter his route.
The whole circumstances of the emperor's
entrance into Russia will militate against
monarchists and his meeting with the czar
will be in a genuine spirit of cordiality.
At noon the emperor started for Narva,
U nat city is already decorated witn nags
and also the gardens. A villa belonging to
M. Polowitheff, a wealthy land owner and
large manufacturer, has been placed at the
disposal of the czar and will be the scene
of a meeting which is destined to become
historic. A post of Russian police will
guard the approaches and they will be
assisted by iifty brernian police, wlio leu
here on Thursday.
The czar's train has been thoroughly in
spected and a watch lias been sent along
the line. M. de Giers arrived at St. Peters
burg today from his summer residence in
Finland and will proceed to Narva where
the military maneuvers begin on Monday.
The imperial conferences at which Yon
Caprivi aud M. de Giers will be present
are expected to lust over three days. If
the emperor fails to persuade the czar to
ward a permanent policy, the conditions to
be arranged through a revision of the Ber
lin treaty by another European congress,
the officinl opinion is decided that rapid
developments tending toward a European
conflict are sure to follow. The Russian
government appears to be acting in full
concert with the French authorities.
Baron Von Monheim was the medium of
the representation against the persecution
of the Jews, which led to the abandonment
of the application of the ukase. Jewish
lirms in Paris influenced the French gov
ernment to operate upon the Russian au
thorities. Even the advice of the French
might not have availed unless it had been
backed by an intimation that the Jew
bankers in Paris would join the German
and English financial combination against
Russian stocks. The Rothschilds took the
initiative in the protest.
THE CUSTOMS BILL.
Tha Consular Conference Attempts to
Paris, August 10. The McKinley bill
E'ill excites commercial circles in the city
end provinces. The recent consular con
ference held in this city received com
plaints from nearly thirty chambers of
commerce pointing out the difficulty of
complying with the provisions of the bill
wthout almost destroying trade. The
conference passed a resolution regretting
that delegates from the chamber
of commerce did not attend the
j-essions. as it could have been shown
that the bill did not .oppress
honest importers; that its only aim was to
protect the revenue of the United States,
mid that the lines and penalties imposed
by the bill were chiefly re-enactments of
oid laws. The conference decided to for
ward the communications received from
the chambers to Washington for the most
iavorable consideration that the terms of
the law will permit. It alo transmitted
to 31. Ribot, minister of foreign alTairs, a
copy of the resolutions adopted, with the
assurance ot an earnest desire to enforce
the law in the interest of honest mer
chant, as far as possible to facilitate
trade and to extend amicable commercial
relations. A committee was appointed to
meet in Frankfort, Germany, a week or
two hence to prepare a report which will
be forwarded to Washington.
The Grounds on Which England Bases Her
London, August 16. Lord Salisbury's
last dispatch to Secretary Blaine relative
to the .Behring sea dispute bears date
of August J. After quoting from hitor
ial documents, the dispatch concludes:

admit any part of the Russian claims as

CRUSHED TO DEATH.
A Terribly Fatal Collision Near Clifton
Alton, 111., August 16. The most ser
ious wreck that ever occurred in this vicin-S-
happened last evening on the St. Louis,
ton & Springfield railroad near Clifton
Terrace. This road is building an exten
sion from a point seven miles above Alton
to the village of Elsah on the Mississippi
river. The men working on this extension
go out from here on a construction train
every morning and return in the evening.
It has been the rule to leave a man
stationed at the switch when the construct
ion train goes up at night to watch for the
passenger train which is due to pass
there at C p. m. This precaution
was forgotten and when the work
train returned as it was past time for the
passenger the men supposed that it had
passed and the work train started to Al
ton. The passenger train was thirty min
utes late and the two train running at the
rate of twenty-five miles per hour collided
on a curve on the bluff. Both engines
were completely wrecked as was also the
car on the work train and the mail car on
the passenger train. The passengers all
escaped with nothing more than bruises,
but others fared worse. Both engineers
jumped and saved themselves. The list
of killed and wounded is as follows:
Peter Smith, of Springfield.
Charles McGee, of Alton.
James Murray, of St. Louis.
Wounded Frank Lee, Springfield,
engineer on the ' passenger train,
right leg badly crushed. Joseph
Daly, Alton, conductor; hips dislo
cated and back sprained; may not recover.
M. S. Seymour, Alton, superintendent St.
Louis, Alton & Springfield railroad, face
badly cut and left leg injured. H. W. Cas
sidy, Alton, legs badly cut and internal
injuries. Patrick McCullaghan, Alton, left
leg and ribs broken; serious. John King,
Jerseyville, newsboy on passenger train,
contusion of left hip and right temple. B.
Powell, severe internal injuries; may die.
V. J. Owens, internally injured right side.
Henry Unterbrink, Alton, fireman on con
struction train; foot badly hurt and legs
cut. Michael Cantrill, Alton, foreman;
hurt and may die. John M. Cuffeny, head
and legs cut and shoulder dislocated.
George Gorman, Delhi, right shoulder dis
located. Richard J. Fesson, right leg
bruised and spine injured. Charles F.
Fossey, cut and internally injured.
PRINTING WORKS BURNED.
Providence, R. I., August 1G. At 7
o'clock this morning fire broke out in the
Bunnell printing works at Pawtucket.
All the old works, covering about three
acres, were burned. The new buildings,
covering about one acre, were saved but
in a damaged condition. The loss is rough
ly estimated at 150,000 to 200,000. Fully

RE-ENACTMENT NOT NECESSARY.
Des Moines, la., August 16. Attorney
General John Y. Stone, of Iowa, has given
a written opinion as to the present status
of the Iowa prohibitory law insofar as it
affects the interstate shipments of liquors.
In substance, he says: "The effect of the
decision of the supreme court in the case
of Leisy et al. vs. Hardin is to deny that
the prohibitory law was applicable to in
terstate shipments of liquors. The effect
of the recent act of congress was to make
such liquor subject to that law. In my
judgment the true construction of the re
cent act is that congress intended that
state laws already in existence as well as
those hereafter enacted should apply to
liquors coming into the state for use, sale,
or storage. The language of the law of
congress as well as the reason and "object
of its enactment supports the view that a
re-enactment of the state law is not neces
sary to give vitality to its provisions."
MISSOURI CROP BULLETIN.
Collumhia, Mo., August 16. Weather
crop bulletin of the Missouri state board
of agriculture for the week ending August
The rainfall in the state has
been above the normal for the week. Some
counties in the northeast and southeast
sectiouf report a deficiency of rain but
more report a normal amount while in
other sections nearly every count' reports
good rains. Temperature and sunshine
were normal throughout the state.
The effect of the weather was favorable
to all growing crops and there has been a
marked improvement in their condition.
Torn especially has been improved and
promises a fair yield where but recently
the crop was regarded as a failure. The
ground is generally in good condition for
plowing for wheat" and the indications are
that a large acreage will be sown.

SERIOUS PHASE OF THE
The Switchmen on the New York
Central at Buffalo Go
The Entire System and Other Lines Likely
to be Involved on Slight
The Striking Knights of Labor Jubilant
All Along the Line Pinkerton Men
in Trouble at Albany for Shooting
and Threatening Conduct
Other Strike Hews.
Buffalo. N. Y., August 16 The strike
on the New York Central road was further
complicated this morning at 4 o'clock.
The switchmen in the Central yards
struck work and those of the West Shore
system in this city followed suit. There
are upwards of 200 men in the movement.
There was the worst tangle of trains and
engines in the Central depot this morning
that has been since the strike began a
week ago this morning. West Shore and
Central engines crowded every track from
the north to south side of the depot and
for a long distance east. All passenger
trains on all roads entering the Central
depot were behind time this morning and
the big train house presents a confused
spectacle. One of the men about the depot
was asked what caused the switchmen to
"Here's all there is to it," was the reply.
"A crew of men were ordered around here
from the Erie Street depot last night to
take the place of the strikers in the train
house. They came but did not like the
job and sent'a delegation to Superintend
ent Burrows asking him to send them
back to the Erie Street depot, as they, be
ing union men, objected to being detailed
to take the places of brother unionists out
on a strike. Mr. Burrows was determined
that they should act as he desired and
A telephone message from Blackrock
stated that all the Central switchmen had
struck there this morning, but that the
firemen were still at work. The West
Shore is not affected at Blackrock.
the situation serious.
The action of the switchmen gives a
new phase to the Central strike. It has
now spread beyond the Knights of Labor.
The men who went out this morning are
members of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid
association, a national organization ex
tending all over the country. It has a
membership of about 800 in this city.
Comparatively few switchmen are in the
Knights of Labor here. It was Grand
Master Sweeney, of the former organiza
tion who ordered this morning's strike.
He arrived here last night. It is said
by the men that the strike is likely to
extend all over the Vanderbilt system
if the trouble here is not speedily settled
and that it certainly will spread should an
effort be made to have non-union switch
men handle Central or West Shore trains.
It is also staled that should roads outside
the Vanderbilt system consent to take
Central freight the switchmen on these
outside roads will be called out. In this
connection it is reported that the Erie
road has refused to handle Central freight,
fearing trouble with its switchmen. There
is no concealing the fact that the switch
men strike has greatly added to the gravity
of the situation.
THE KNIGHTS JUBILANT.
To say that the local striking Knights
of Labor are jubilant would be putting it
mildly. They are overjoyed at the turn
a trail's have taken and seem more con
fident of success than ever. They held an
important meeting this afternoon tor the
purpose of discussing the situation.
Major McGowan. of the executive com
mittee from Albany, said: "Buffalo is con
sidered the key to "the situation and we
will do our best to hold it. I made a pre
diction and that materialized, so I will
make another: Inside of five days you
will see steps taken by the railroad com
pany looking towards arbitration, you
mark my words."
The live stock shipment from this point
despite the assistance given by the west
Shore, Lakawanna and Erie are at least a
week behind. There is no knowing how
long it will take to get caught up.
It was learned tonight that the switch
men on the Central and West Shore peti
tioned for Chicago wages before the strike
iu the east; they asked that an answer be
returned to their petition on or before
Monday, August IS. No concession has
been received. "Therefore," said one of
the labor agitators now in town looking on
and encouraging the strike, "the switch
men were ready to strike next Monday
any way if this had not been precipitat
ed." As it is now, the switchmen
declare their men must be taken back
and the wages of all raised, too. The
police are all stopping at the station
houses tonight ready for a call to quell a
disturbance at any moment. Up to a late
hour every thing is quiet. The strikers
CONFIDENCE AT ALBANY.
Albany, N Y., August 16. The strikers
here are confident and say that they will
win. They evidently have something
on which" to base their hopes, but
do not say what it is. Bulletins

Knights of Labor every hour continue
to speak encouragingly of the situation
and counsel the men W stand firm.

who drew his revolver on a crowd of dis

CONSIDERING THE STRIKE.
New York. August 16. The executive
Iwinrdof the Knights of Labor with Master
Workman Lee went into executive session
in parlor 20 in the St. Cloud hotel
shortly after 10 o'clock this morning. They
were oon joined by half a dozen of the
officers of District Assembly 246.
Mr. Powderlv in the course of an inter
view said: "1 he executive board and the
local board including Lee and Malloy are
in secret session now. We are going over
and carefully considering every phase of
the strke on the Central road. We are dU
cussiug the details without prejudice
either to the strikers or the company. It
is the policy of the Knights of Labor to
avoid strikes as much" as possible aud I
will try to carry out this principle, but of

NICKEL PLATE SWITCHMEN CONFER.
Fort Wayne. Ind.. August 16. A ocret
meeting of all the train men on the Nickel f
Plote road has been called for toeiorrosv
to take place at Bellvae. O. The ineetinc I
will include engineers, firemen, switch
men and brakemen. It can not be
ascertained for what purpose the
meeting has been called but as
the Nickel Plate is a part of
the Vanderbilt system, it is surmised
that matters pertaining to the strike on
the New York Central will be discussed.
ROCK ISLAND MEN OUT.
Chicago, 111., August 16. The strike
among the Rock Island switchmen at
Forty-Seventh street occurred tonight and
all traffic is stopped. The cause of the
trouble was that Jame Murphy was dis

cation, it is alleged.
A DOUBLE MTTEDER.
A St. Paul Man Arrested for Drowning
Wife and Daughter.
St. Paul, Minn., August 16. Walter F.
Horton, timber inspector of the Northern
Pacific Railway company, is under arrest
under the awful charge of having drowned
his wife and daughter in the Mississippi
At 8 o'clock last night Horton hired a
boat at the lower docks, put his wife and
little girl, a child of 8 years, into it, rowed
out into the current and floated away. At
7 o'clock this morning Horton came down
from his room at Basil Landroches' No.
157 Elton avenue, and told Mrs. Land
roches that his wife and child had fallen
out of the boat at South Park, five
miles down the river, about 9:30 last
evening, and, being unable to rescue them,
he had come back to the city and gone to
This remarkable coolness, coupled with
the fact that the boat was a fishing skiff
twentv feet long and four feet wide, which
it would be hard to overturn instill water,
excited the suspicions of the police, and
they lost no time in placing him under ar
rest. All the evidence adduced is of one
character, and makes out a very black
case against Horton. Mrs. Landroches
savs the couple often quarreled, and that 8
o'clock in the evening was an unusual
hour to start on a rowing trip on the river.
Horton savs they were married in 1879,
and lived at Brainard. Minn. On July 3,
four years ago, he says he returned home,
and from various suspicious circumstances
became convinced that his wife had been
untrue to him. He left her and she went
to Tremueleau, Wis., to live with her
brother. A short time ago they agreed,
for the sake of the child, to live together,
and she came to St. Paul. Horton tells
this storv of the drowning:
"About 9:20, when about five miles down
stream, Mabel, my daughter, saw some
object floating on the water and tried to
catch it. When my wife faw her leaning
over the edge of the boat she jumped to
catch her aud upset the boat, all of us
going into the water. I did not see them
again, but floated to a sand bar, when I
was taken ashore by a man I did not
The police say the boat could not have
been tipped over in the manner described
and the water at that point was not deep

Joseph Anstett. who lives three blocks
from the scene of the awful affair, said:
"I heard a woman screaming and strug
gling in the water about 9 o'clock, but
when I reached the water's edge all was
quiet. The water is very shallow at that
point, onlv thiee or four feet feet deep.

TOO MUCH POLITICS.
The City Treasurer of Terre Haute Short
in His Accounts.
Terre Haute, Ind., Aug'-, 15. In con
nection with a general exposure of the
shortage of ex-City Treasurer Fitzpatrick,
the Express in the morning will say:
The finance committee of the city coun
cil, with the city attorney and city clerk,
have been engaged for a week going over
the books of City Trejisurer Fitzpatrick
for his last term of two years, ending in
September, 1SS9. They have found a short
age of 9,400,and suit will at once be brought
against his bondsmen to recover this
amount. A resolution will also be intro
duced in the council meeting next Tuesday
night authorizing an investigation of his
first term of two years preceding his second
term, enough information and facts being
now at hand to warrant the belief that
ther? may be a large amount short.
"Jimmy" Fitzpatrick was a popular
young Irishman whose pleasing ways
when a deputy in the county auditor's
office made him an invincible candidate in
1SS5 for city treasurer. In 1SS7 he was re
elected by an increased majority, and in
IsSS he " was the chairman of the
Democratic county committee in the
national campaign when politics
were bloodthirsty in this part of Iloosier
dom. There were those who then believed
that he had used public funds for political
ends, and in the spring of 1SS9, when he
secured a renoniination for a third term,
there was a general suspicion that politics
and the office had been too closely identi
ged and he was defeated.
The investigation just concluded shows
that he began his stealings ft.ur months
after he went into office. His method was
to collect taxes and, failing to credit the
taxpayer, would drop the name from the
delinquent list. In other instances he
kept the money paid in for public improve
ments. Fitzpatrick is now president of the In
terstate Base Ball league and returned
from St. Louis today, where he had been
trving to settle the "affairs of the league
and of Terre Haute's part especially, the
Terre Haute club having dropped out. He
was officially notified ten days ago of the
proceedings against hirn, but is apparently
indifferent. Some of his bondsmen to
nisrht sav that he is the nerviest man they
eer knew, that he apparently attaches no
importance to what they realize is the
serious and criminal situation he is in. It
is also thought he will not be found in the
city at daylight
THE WORLD'S PAIR.
The Site to be Made on the Lake Front by
Chicago, III., August 16. Before many
days, if appearances are reliable, the exact
time for beginning the filling in, or the
piling of tbe"citys outer haroor. as a site
for the world's fair, will be definitely de
cided. This afternoon ex-City Engineer
Arhngstall, who some time ago was en
gaged by the grounds and build
ings committee of the fair directors
to make soundings and see what
could be done with the space that
it is proposed to fill in, made his report to
the committee, and it is said created a
good imDression in favor of the lake front.
Mr Arhngstall gives estimates of the co-t
of filling in 120 acres, 170 acres or 220 acres.
He also tells the committee how long it
will take to prepare each space for a site,
and he explains his methods to be used to
fill in the spaces. Mr. Arhngstall also,
makes a few suggestions as to how the
site should be reachL
The report was recived by President
Gage, and he immediately sent for the
members of the buildings and grounds
commute, and the contents of the docu
ments were devoured. What was in the
report was apparently of a very satisfac
tory nature to them, for they seemed
much pleaded after they had discussed it
fully. They were each very reticent, how
ever, and refused to make the contents ol
the report public. " You can say that the
fair will be held on the lake front." was
all the information their spokft-man. Di
rector Walker, would extend. The report,
he added, would not lx giv?n out nnttl
the meeting of the directors Tuesday.

duced. The consideration of the river and har
bor bill was then proceeded with on
amendments offered by individual sena
tors. After much discussion the important

pointed conferees on thepart of the senate.
Mr. Quay gave notice of his intention to

would call up the motion on Tuesday.
WANT AN EXTENSION OFTIME.
Washington, August 16. Tne Chero
kee strip cattlemen are still praying for
an extension of time iu which to remove
their herds from the Indian territory. The
date fixed bv the executive order to vacate
the Cherokee strip is October 1. and the cat
tlemen and their friends are urging that
under existing circumstances December 1
is earlv enough. Since the strip has not
yet been purchased, and can not be
opened to settlement this fall, they insist
that nobody will be inconvenienced by a
few months' delay in the matter of re
moving the cattle. Senator Sawyer, of
Wisconsin, who is interested in a ranch
in the Cherokee strip, was at the
white house yesterday to interview the
president regarding the matter, and he
feels pretty confident that the time will be
extended until December. A drouth has
prevailed in the Cherokee strip and the
surrounding country for some time, and
not only is the grass short and dry, but
crops of all kind are a failure. With a
verv limited grass supply, and no feed of
any other sort, the cattle are extremely
poor, and will be in no condition to mar
ket a month hence. It is hoped that the
fall rains will be sufficiently abundant to
revive the grass, so that the cattle may be
put in fair condition before the first of De
cember. This is the only hope of the cat
tlemen, according to their representations,
and they are strenuously insisting that
the time of removal be extended. The
matter will be decided probably next

mittee on rules reported a resolu
tion for the immediate considera
tion of the anti-lottery bill, the
previous question to be considered as or
dered at 4.40 this afternoon.
Mr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, put on

time for the previous question on the bilL

thought the house, and not the coinmitu-e

IS THE ALLIANCE WEAKENING?
Atchison, Kan., August id. Tho Farm
ers.' Alliance of Atchison county hold a
picnic at Lan caster today. Not f than
3.000 people were prudent, and there w
plenty to cat for all and .some to sjmr.
The speakers were Stale Organiser Brush,
ex-Governor George W. Glick, who will
probably lx the Democratic caudidulo for
governor, W. W. Guthrie, the prospectir
Republican nominee for congress, and a
half-dozen or more smaller fellows, who
aspire to county otllcvs. Before tho
.speaking the county Alliance voted
to repudiate the call of tho
county central cominRtcu for
a convention Septembor 2, at AtchtaoH,
changing it to August "J5, at KlltngbMiu.
This was to llx the convention nhood of
the Democratic convention, which h
been called for August 3S. and t ho Hopub
lican convention which will meet Soptoin
her 30. Tins action is a quure bock-down
from the Alliance's former -Kfedtkui, hav
ing resolved to ignore the two old partlus.
It. shows uiimistnkttblo weakness. Boforu
the nomination of John F. WHIotto for
governor the Alliance win arrogant. It fe
now submissive. Republicans are daeorv
ing it on account of the nomination of
WlllctUj, and the Democrats aro quitting
it because they were given no roprusutif
tion on the state ticket. If tho Home oom
dition of things exists all over too UUe,
the Alliance will cut little ilguro in state
