The city has donned the garb of mourn
ing out of respect to the memory of the

ings are covered with black and present a
tombor appearance; but a high wind dur
ing the early morning has destroyed many
of the decorations, and all along the line
of march oyer which the funeral proces
sion will move flags are displayed at half
mast. Besides the distinguished gentle
men who accompanied the remains from
"Washington, there are many others as

THE STRIP ASSOCIATION.
Kansas Citv, Oct 18. A meeting of tho
directors of the Cherokee Strip Live Stock
association whs held hero this afternoon.
Tho meet ing was called to order at 3:30
o'clock this afternoon by P. M. Hewius, of
CVdarvale, Kan., presiaent of the associa
tion. Tho meeting was, of course, secret,
but the proceedings were learned from one
of the directors. The first business
was the presentation of tho report of the
treasurer, John M. X3-ce, of Caldwell. It
gave a statement of the assets and liabili
ties of tho association. Mr. NyceJ was
directed to pay all the debts of tho associa
t ion excepting one item of $100,0LH) for rent
of the strip from Jul 1, IKK) to December
PI, IsftO. The rent has heretofore been
paid in advance, but when President Har
rison ordered tho company to vacate the
strip on October 1. l!sP0, it was decided not
to pay the quarter's rent uutil it
was seen whether they were allowed
to occupy t for the full time.
Since that timo the government has taken
the position that tho Indians, not owning
the laud, in fee simple, had no power to
make tho lease for the lands. Now the
f 'iiipnny holds that if this is the fact,
Mnir lease is void, and tho quarter's rent
rinnot be collected. T. F. Button, of
Kiowa, one of the directors present at to
day's meeting, says the company will con
tent any attempt to collect the money.
A resolution was adopted that it was
best to dissolve the association, now that
its pasture lands are about to be sold to
t ie government, and the secretary was in
structed to give the stockholders twenty
days' notice of a meeting to be held for
President Hewius says that about 50 per
cent of the members will go out of the
cattle business, while 70 per cent of the re
mainder will move their business and
herds to Montana.
FRANCE AND THE TARIFF BILL.
PAWS, Oct IS. There has been great
excitement during the week at Lyons,
over the United States tariff law, and M.
Burdeau, the Lyons deputy, has given
notice that he will, in the, "chamber, de
mand retaliation for the increased duties
on French goods. He will especially pro
pose t hat a retaliatory duty be placed on
petroleum, nnd will also suggest that
boards of inspection be established for the
examination of all imports from the Unit
ed is'ates. On the other hand, the com
mittee for the defense of the silk market
held a creat meeting at Lvons, at which
the speakers took the ground that a policv
of retaliation was likely to do more harm
thang.KMl The meeting was attended by
silk merchants, spinners and silk workers
generally, from St Ktienne, St. Chamond,
and tho entire adjoining region. Most of
the senators and deputiesfromthedistrict,
as well as the mayor of the city and a ma
jonty of the members of the chamber of
commerce, were present.
The president of the Chamber of Com
merce called attention to the fact that the
adoption of a retaliatory policy against
Italy has already cost the Lyon's market
7.500,000 fraucs worth of business, and has
given Germany an industrial snpremacvin
Italy. The Americans, he said, wished" to
exnort without importing. They would
see that this was impossible, but he would
leave them to reap the inevitable fruits of
their own bad policy. It would be much
better not to interfere with them by any
angry steps on the part of France. Be
sides, the notable injustice committed by
France and other countries towards Amer
ica in the matter of pork had led to the
Conferring Of extraordinary nnwprs nnnn
the president of the United States by the
Edmunds retaliatory bill, and might en
tail dangers to the great French articles of
export, particularly wines and silks. The
president was followed by a senator aud
two members of the chamber of deputies,
all of whom spoke to the same effect.

LONDON, Oct. 16. A sensation has been

new pictorial representation of Christ be
fore Pilate, The painting is by a Russian
artist. Nicolai. its powertul realism mav
bt inferred from the fact that scores of woj
men have fainted at the sight. The picture,
thoimh horrible, is strangely fascinat
ing and the salon where it i .'isplayed is
continually crowded to suffocation." The
subject is treated from an entirely different
conception to that of Munkucy in his
famous painting bearing the same title.
The wcrk is pronounced by critics to be
vastly inferior to the latter in a purely
artistic sense, but yet to poess a reraark

to simple realism.

Herr von Maybach, minister of public
works, who was charged with the Drepara
tion of a bill providing for the erection of
dwelings for workingmen in every populous
city, has received the imperial censure be
cause of the incomplete condition of his
proposal. It is the opinion in official cir
cles that the trouble for which Herr von
Maybach has been blamed was due to
tho restraints placed upon his ac
tion by the minister of finance.
The emperor had a grand scheme, but the
minister, Von Mayback, on consulting
with Herr Miquel, Prussian minister of
finance, found that there were obstacles to
the investing of more than 8,000,0 0 marks
in the building of small tenements in the
snburbs. Herr Miquel, it is understood,
insists that the government "proceed with
the greatest caution. Herr Miquel's poiicy
implies a waiting to see what effect the
new United States tariff will have upon
some sources of German prosperity.

Washington, Oct. 18. Official reports
received at the treasury department from
Special Agent Goff in charge of the Seal
Islands fisheries are of a most discouraging
character. They state that poaching has
been carried on this season to such an ex
tent as actually to threaten the life of the
seal indnstry as a source of revenue to the
United States in the future aud if persisted
in to the same extent next season, to en
danger its very existence. Because of the
alarming extent to which poaching has
been carried on the number of seals al
lowed to be captured by the North Ameri
an Commercial company, which holds an
lease of Saint George and St. Paul Islands,
was limited by the treasury department to
20,000 this season, though their contract
called for 60,00. It is estimated by the
treasury department othcials iamilliar
with the poaching operations in Behring
sea that fully 60,000 seals have been cap
tured unlawfully this season. These seals
are shot in the open ocean and not more
than one in six shot is secured. This
would represent a slaughter of 300,000
seals, which have been wantonly killed
and whoso skins have been recovered. It
is not thought chat the seal industry can
long withstand this wholesale slaugh
ter, as the seals are killed indis
criminately, without regard to age, sex or
breeding season. At this time only one
revenue cutter, the Bear, is at the Seal
Islands. The Rush arrived today at San
Francisco, and the Corwin is now at Port
lownsend. Several naval vessels are still
in the region of the Seal Islands, but pend
ing diplomatic negotiations between the
United States and Great Britain, in regard
to the fisheries question generally, both on
the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, little ag
gressivo action has been taken by naval
officers for fear of further complicating
the situation. In the meantime the seals
are fast disappearing from the Behring

L Sullivan's birthday tho 32d, so he

to the Haymarket. Miss Rosina Vokes
was in a box. The well known playwright,
Len G rover, was in attendance, and it
would be n long list of names to mention
the people, from Lawrence Barrett's com
pany and other organizations, that were
prc-ent. Tho show folks were warmly
demonstrative, calling the new fledged
iiistrion repeatedly before the curtain, and
he had to make a speech: "Ladies and
gentlemen thank you very much hope in

yours John L. Sullivan." The criticisms
of the actors on the accession to their

RACE RIOT IMMINENT IS NEW
Discovery of the Plot of a Secret
Society to Kill City and
Arrest of an Organized Gang of Thieves
and Thugs by the Police of
A Manacled Prisoner Shot and Elled by
the Brother of His Yictim Benson
the Leavenworth Murderer Indict
edA Shooting Affiray Be
tween a Man and a "Wo
New Orleans. Oct. 18. It seems certain
that the city is on the eve of a bloody race
riot. Not only has it been learned that Chief
of Police Hennessey was murdered by the
Mafia, but the astounding revelation was
made hist night that the murderers had
planned to kill a number of other officers.
Public feeling is strongly aroused against
the Italian colony, and the least thing
would precipitate a riot. The police last
niirht searched the residence of one of the
men arrested for the murder of Chief
Hennessey, and found a detailed plan to
assassinate all city or state officers who
acted contrary to the wishes of the Mafia.
The cause of the killing of Chief Hennes
sey dates back to last spring, when certain
members of the society known as the Pro
vensean gang waylaid and shot into a
wagon-load of rival Italians one nisht.
The police secured evidence enough to con
vict the perpetrators of the attempted as
sassination, who were sentenced to life im
prisonment. A new trial was granted, and
it was set for next week. Chief Hennessey
had possessed himself of important infor
mation in regard to the workings of the
Mafia, and it was believed that on the trial
of the cases he would expose the inside
workings of this band of assassins. The
possession of this knowledge, and his
avowed determination to break up the
Mafia, were, without doubt, the causes
that led to his murder.
Joseph Maecci and other leading Italians,
against whom affidavits were made yester
day, after the shooting and partial con
fession of Scaffidi, were arrested this
morning, charged with being accessories
to the murder of Hennessey.
At a special meeting of the council at
noou, Mayor Shakespeare's message was
read, denouncing the murder of Hennes
sey through hired assassins, declaring that
terrible secret orders exist in New Orleans,
and that, in this instance, the chief of
police was assassinated for doing his duty
in enforcing American laws; that any cit
izen performing his duty, or under any
circumstances, incurring emnity of these
Seople, is liable to the dread sentence of
eath being passed on him nnd carried out
by assassins, who divulge nothing, say
nothing and know nothing; that the same
leading Italians are now at the head of
these orders, while others more peacefully
incliued are blackmailed and threatened
with death, or obliged " ' ivt. the city, if
they do not comnly with the demands of
these orders. This state of affairs has
gone on long enough, and must be stop
ped. The council is called on to take in
lative steps to drive, if necessary, these
people from the United States.
Councilman Britton offered a resolution,
which was adopted, that the mayor ap
point a committee of fifty or more if he
deem it proper, to thoroughly investigate
these secret orders nnd report. At 1 o'clock
todny the mayor received a communication
notifying him that he will be the next
victim. Mr. Shakespeare says that this
wm not deter him from dointj his duty.
He appointed the committee of fifty to
hunt out the vendetta, and the members
are to meet in the council chamber tonicrht.
The meeting of the committee of fifty
to-night was secret, but the committee an
nounced that it would pursue the investi
gation to the end. bring the murderers of
the chief of police to jnstice, nnd brak up
Italian assassination leagues in this city.
A thousand dollars was raised on the spot,
and, by next week, the committee expects
to have io ,000 to assist in the work.
One of the facts stated was that the ship
Elysia is coming up next week with 700 Ital
ian immigrants' on board. The mayor inter
viewed the custom house authorities, and.
as a result, thev will go down and meetthe
ship. Unless the immigrants can sntisfy
the officers that they are desirable finan
cially and morally, they will not be al
lowed to land.
Jo Macheca, who was arretted today,
has heretofore been considered a promi
nent Italian above the murderous plots of
his more ignorant fellow countrymen.
Since his arrest, some damuging evidence
A GANG OF THIEVES.

SHOT HER SEDUCER.
QuiNCT, 111., Oct 18. One of the most
sensational shooting affrays that ever oc
curred in this city took place on one of the
principal business streets early this after
noon. Dan G. Price, of Salina. Kan., was
fatally wounded by Miss Xillie Booth of
Camp Point, and the young lady was shot

man running into a store; but he imme
diately returned to the sidewalk and shot
her down. Price died soon after the shoot
ing, but Miss Booth's wound is not neces
sarily fatal. The Price and Booth families
are among the most prominent in this
county. About a vear ago 3-onng Price

of Chicago, who has been devoting the
past two years at the Detroit Electrical
works to perfecting a system of electric
railroad propuision, has produced an en

enabling any size car to be run with one
motor instead of two, reducing the cost of
maintenance and repairs one-half, and
doing away with all noise and the profuse
use of oil, which are now the chief ob

There being but one motor enables
stronger working parts to be put in. A
