Boston,May 8.^The annual report of^the Atchison. Topeka ^ bant a Fe road for^the year ;-^* was given out this evening-^The gross earnings were S15.612.W13: dt-^crease,$2,847.453:operating expenses incl ud-^ing taxes, ^11,027.151; increase, $618,707; n^ t^earnings, deducting taxes. 54.5s5.tf51. de^^crease. Stf,4^^^. 160. Of the decrease of grots^earnings the lost on the passenger business^i.^ ^n^1.000, and on freight traffic 82.054.300^The deficiency for the twelve months to^December 31, was 81.517.WI6: surplus lie^cetuber 31, $7,888,620; net surplus. 56.435,-^551.
Thereport says that even with the addi^^tional tariff derived by the Atchison sys^^tem from extensions, the actual number of^passengers and tons of freight transported^was considerably less than during the pre^^ceding year, and it Is obvious that except^for business coming to it from its new^lines, the earnings must have shown^greater decrease still. The reduc^^tion of business is due to various causes.^First, unusually light crops for^two years and a consequent depression ot^business. In a community chiefly agricul^^tural, such as that served by our system,^w.-alth is not accumulated rapidly, and the^loss of a single year's crop is seriously felt,^while the loss ot a crop for two succeeding^years becomes almost disastrous. Natur^ally, the railroads in such regions feel the^| misfortune of poor ciops as speedily and^! completely as the people themselves. The^earnings have been further greatly reduced^through the construction of new lines^which have covered our territory with a^network of roads, reaching almost every^i point of consequence on our lines, and dl^j \idingthe business which has heretofore^xought our road. Following the opening^| of these new lines came active and vigor^^ous competition for the diminished busi-^I ness and a reduction of rates, which bad^to be met, but which under the provisions^of the interstate commerce law could only^he met at the cost of proportionate reduc^^tions to and from almoal all other points on^our lines, whetner they were reached by^our competitors or not in common with^all roads, and particularly those of the^the west, we have suffered largely rom un-^remunerative rates.
Withmany influences working in practi^^cal combination to reduce the earning^power of railroads, their right to make any^combination for self-protection has been^denied by state and national enactments^The theory of these laws is radically-^wrong, because they overlook the fact that^the public interest requires stability in^rates not less than they should be fair and^reasonable. Nothing can be more certain^than that unrestrained competition, arti-^fjcally stimulated by pubic sentiment, is^productive of far more evil than good. The^report says the long and short haul^clause of the interstate commerce act^has operated to disarrange the^commerce of the country, to force^business into unnatural channels and to^enlarge the traffic of a few lines, while^crippiing and destroying that of many. In^several of the western states rates have^been established by law, which are ruin^^ously low, and although our system has^been comparatively free from this injustice,^it will be easily seen we cannot escape its^effects. When rates in Iowa are arbitrarily^forced down the difficulty of maintaining^fait rates in adjoining states are immeasur^^ably increased. Aside from competition,^there is in time of business depression diffi^^culty of maintaining the \ rice ot transport^^ation when ever} thing else has depre^^ciated.
Thereport refers to the heavy reductions^in coal and grain rates atthe request of the^railway commissioners on account of busi^^ness depression, etc., and says returning^prosperity will, no doubt, materially dimin^^ish the demands made upon the railroads^for lower rates. It is believed by the direc^^tors that the new association of western^roads for the prevention of unneeessary^and destructive wars of rates will be bene^^ficial both to the public and the railroads.
Speakingof the increase in dividends n^the tall of ik*7 to 7 per cent, which action^was severely criticized, the report says:^'- There was every reason to believe at that^time that the earnings of the road for the^last half ot 1hh7 would he greater than for^the first halt of the year, but through the^particular failure of the corn crop and^other unforeseen causes the j ear formed a^remarkable exemption to the previous^course of the c unpany's earnings.
OfMlahoma the report says: ^There is^every reason to believe the earnings of the^Atchinson line will be largely increased^hy the settlement of this region.

Chicago,May K^A dispatch from New^York says the Irish nationalities there ap^^pear convinced that Dr. Cronin was assas^^sinated in Chicago, in a geneneral way,^without giving the source of the informa^^tion, it is said at a meeting of Irish organ^^izations in Chicago to vindicate Alexander^Sullivan against the charges by Cronin. a^resolution was offered practically sentenc^^ing Cronin and others to death, but it was^defeated. That fact became known and^a friend of Cronin advised a recourse to^the courts, but found It useless,^and none who kaew the facts dared to tes^^tify. Stone goee on to say that Cronin's^attacks on Sullivan in the Celtic Ameri^^can, charging him with getting l.-ranm^into the membership ot the Clan-na-Oael^widened the breach and may have prompt^^ed some foolhardy friend of Sullivan to^commit the murder, .lohn Devery, Michael^Urextin and others sent a dispatch to^Cronin in Chicago offering to raise money^to hunt down the assassins of Cronin. Dr.^B ra. Wallace, a particular friend of Cro^^nin, believes blm to have been murdered^by individuals who b ame him as a medical^practitioner for the death of some dear^one, whom he had treated, and says it is^not a political murder at all.
Nothingd^ finite has been learned in the^Dr. Cronin m)8tery to-day. His friends^talk of offering a reward for information^or the recovery of the body. It is proposed^to drag the north branch of the river to^^morrow. Mr. Conk,in. with whom the^doctor lived, still adheres to his belief of^foul play, lie will not tell to whom be^gave the private papers of Cronin, men^^tioned in these dispatches last night.

Washington,May K^W. ^^. Atwater,^in charge of the work at the experiment^stations established by the agricultural de^^partment, is preparing a bulletin, which^will be published this year, giving a sketch^of the progress of education in agricultural^colleges and schools. It is acknow ledged^that the purpose for which agricultural col^leges were established in several states^and to which the government contributed^by liberal grants of land and money, has^not been realized. The colleges do not^educate men for the farms, but for the pro^^fessions, and the tendency of their teach^^ings has been to draw young men from^farms instead of fitting for work on them.^The curriculum inmost cases is too ex^^pensive for the average farmer's son to^meet The consequence is that the class^for whom the colleges were designed have^received almost absolutely no benefit from^their existence. In connection with the^state university of Minnesota an agricul^^tural school was opened last fall, the^course of study comprising two^years of twenty-four weeks each. Gradu^^ates of the common district schools of the^state are qualified to enter and they are^taught the practical things of farm life in^addition to the literary branches of learn^^ing. The school bad been opened but a^few weeks when its accomoxidations were^all taken, while the agricultural college^proper had been struggl ng along for years^with barely enough students to form a sin^^gle class. At the Indian and colored^schools, at Hampton, Vs.. supported by^the government, a course of agricultural in^^struction is pursued and nearly one hun^^dred pupils are engnged in it Experiment^stations of the department aie located at^these schools and because of the great^practical benefit accruing the bulletin will^strongly advocate the extension of the sys^^tem. S cretary Kusk is also deeply inter^^ested in the establishment of a short winter^course of lectures to young men on farms^upon topics related to the successful con^^duct of their labors.

NewVokk. May K^The senate com^^mittee investigating trie working of the^Interstate commerce law and Canadian^; roads doing business in this country re-^| sumed this morning. The first witness^called was President 1 ^r s Francis^i Adams, of the t'nioa I'a ific. Adams^thought the interstate couim ^rce law in^many cases cruel. Those who obeyed it^lost and those who evaded it profited. ^I^!^hou:d like, however, to see it universally^; obeyed and given a fair trial,*' he said,^'-and since January I really be-^| Leve the law has be. n^better obeyed than ever befor^.^I know for instance tbat large shippeia^j who heretofore had practically dictat-n^I their own tern s, can do so no long* r. Tl e^interstate commissioners, 1 think, are^: iloing a good work. The greatest service^j ibe commission-rs could do the railroads^in general mould be to prosecute some of^he offenders. Nothing could have a better^I effect on the situation ^ Adams thought^' that a common railroad law between Cana-^! da and the t'nited States and a legaliz-d^j pool would tie a good thing, and would^ten 1 to bring about a solution of the pres^^ent troubles in reference to the Canadian^, roads-.
Ifyou think the interstate law a good^; thing, where does all the opposition come^from ^^ asked Senator Blair.
Youmust remember the country has^been MM up on a system which the^intt-r-'att- law shakes to Its very founda.^The lo n and short haul clauses give in^eff-ct to smaller cities many of the ad van^tages heretofore exclusively enjoyed by the^larger cities, and the consequence is that in^a city like San Francisco the opporition is^very strong.
PresidentHill, of the St. Paul. Minnesp^sAs a Manitoba railroad, was the first wit-^ness called after the r. cess. He gave an^account of the probaMe route of the future |^r^etween Asia and Europe, the Canadian^Pacific road. He said they bad a fast line ^^of sttamers running from the western ter^^minus to Asia and from the eastern ter^^minus to Liverpool.
Isthere much foreign trade or Asiatic^trade coming over the Canadian Pacific^road T' asked Chairman Cullom.
Considerable;some ernes over our^road destined for ^ ^maha.
Whydoes it take such a round-about^course T*
Probablybecause five or six cents a^hundred pounds Is an inducement. We^! have a differential rate and as time is no^* object it pays to take advantage of the^| lower rate.
ErastusWyman snoke strongly in favor^of commercial reciprocity. Any attempt^: to shut out Canadian lines from operating^! in this country wonld be a serious blow to^i western American farmers, and would be^badly received by the Canadian people.

When her horse^came home riderless the next morn^^ing a search was instituted and^the body of the woman was found lying^face downwards in a pool of water. On the^left side of the face was a deep scar, indica^tive of a strong and powerful blow. Other^bruises were about the face and shoulders.^On the ground forty rods distant was the^basket of eggs, apparently unharmed, an^^other indication that foul play had been^done.

THETIMES INOI IKY.

London.May Parnell's examination^was finished to-day. He testified that tbe^reception committee in America comprised^the leading merchants of New York, rep^^resentative citj/^n,ministers of re^^ligion. In his speeches in New York wit^^nesses dec I sred that not a farthing con^^tributed to the Irish cause would go toward^organizing a rebellion in Ireland. Through^^out bis tour of the United States he never^swerved a hairsbreadth from that declar^ation.
Thewitness said he firmly believed that^none of his colleagues since joining the^Irish parliamentary party had had any^^thing to do with the Feniana. Referring^to some letters of his, Parnell said he had^copies made from his secretary's short hand^notes. At this point Attorney General^Webster said: ^It seems there exists a^book of copies of Psrneli's letters I would^like to see tbat book.^^Sir Charles Kussell^By- all roeana.^Presiding Justice Hannen^If these let^^ters refer to the league they ought to have^been disclosed.
ParnellYour lordships are welcome to^see any letters I ever wrote or received.
AttorneyGeneral Webster, recurring to^tbe examination of Parnell'a private bank^account, wanted to trace a number of^checks, and a warm diacusro i ensued. Sir^Charles declaring such action would be^unfair. Justice Hannen suggested a post^^ponement of the inquiry into this matter^until further documents were before the^court.
ArchbishooWslsb then took the stand.^He testified he came to tbe conclusion be^fore 187tf that there was need of a defensive^land organization, and was proceeding to^give his opinion for the necessity of such^an organization when Jnstice Hannen in^^terposed, saying the inquiry must be lim^^ited to whether or not the land league was^necessary. Biggar urged that opinions as^evidence had been given over and over^again by ^hirelings of the government.^^Justice Hannen warned Biggar that he^must not make use of such expressions.^Biggar then said that unless such evi^^dence was admitted, the whole Inquiry^would end In a farce. Tbe archbishop con^^tinuing said that In the course of his visits^through his diocese he bad abundant^means of knowing that the league de^^nounced outrages. Many priests bad^joined tbe league with his approval.

The' .olden Late special, between Omaha^and San Francisco, will be discontinued on^the 11 tn Inst., and in place of it tbe new^fast train of tbe Central and Union Pacific^road will run iu first trip on the 12tb Inst,^speaking of the abandonment of tbe special^Col. C. F. Crocker, of San Francisco, said :^^We have given tbe Golden Gate special a^fair trial. 1 am well aware that the Penn^sylvania limited trains had to be run six^months before their success could be de^^monstrated. Then it was found that these^fast trains were a success, but tbe rale will^not apply to California. We have adver^tised tbe Golden Gate special, both here and^in tbe east- There baa always been enough^eaatbound travel to sustain tbe special, bat^tbe westbound has been too slack. 1 think^its existence is sufficiently we 1 known In^tbe east. Peopl- took tbe Golden Gate^special at this end of tbe route because It^was attract ve and close at hand, bnt when^one started from N^w Yrrk be bad to cal^^culate bow many days it would take him to^get to tbe Golden Gate special terminus in^time. People could see tbe train at this^end, bat at tbe other end they had to go it^blind. They did not know wbat to expect,^and were consequently loath to put out ex^^tra dollars for train conveniences, which^tbey knew nothing about. The train hav^^ing proved Itself financially premature for^California, it will be removed as soon as^arrangements can be made with the east-^era roads for a substitute. Instead of^running one fast train a week in addition^to oar regular overland, we now propose to^run two overland trains daily.

As^soon as the news reached Stafford a mass^meeting was held and a committee ap^^pointed to carry on the work of relieving^the distress In a systematic manner. More^than a hundred people are left homeless^and without food or clothing.
