frosts, caused some injury to fruit anil

Luigi Graffigna, an Italian farmer,
residing outside the eastern boundary of

day evening last, that on the afternoon
of that day he drove into town and left

The Muscovites Irritated by
A Franco-Russian Alliance a Fore
Russia Places An Order for Smokeless
Cartridges for a Million Rifles in
Associated i'ress Dispateb.es. 1
Berlin, Ma?'t7.—The emperor's utter
ances at Konigsltirg sufficed to irritate
the Bpssian government and dispel all
delusions regarding the possibility of a
renewal of the entente with Russia.
Newspapers here minimized his refer
ence to war in his speech of Wednesday,
but yesterday his final utterance, when
leaving, contained an allusion which it
is impossible to misunderstand. "1
shall not allow," said the emperor, "my
provinces here or in the east to be
touched; those attacking them will find
that my strength is that of a rock."
As Russia is the only possible frontier
assailant of East Prussia, his words,
especially in view of their following his
first aggressive declaration, are now in
terpreted here as in St. Petersburg, as
aimed against Russia.
Within the official circle here the
emperor's deliverance caused no sur
prise in view of advices from Paris
pointing to a closer relation between the
French and Russian foreign offices.
Whatever may be the czar'B opinion of
the value of a French alliance, the
czar's advisers cultivate it. Another
pregnant fact is Chancellor Caprivi's
announced design to place one of the
new army corps on the Russian frontier.
The emperor did not, without fore
thought, say yesterday that if obliged to
draw the sword, those who troubled
peace would find* iermanblows as heavy
as they were twenty years ago. Both
speeches contain a veiled but emphatic
declaration of the solidity of the Drei
bund and the vigilance of its chiefs
against the common enemy.
The last reports from Major
Wissmann announced the occupa
tion of the country from Lindi
to Mikindani without righting, and the
general submission of the Arab chiefs of
the region toward the Eovums river.
Wissmann is hopeful of soon securing

arms will render safe caravan routes to
the mission stations.

maintains friendly communications.

Terrible Destruction and Suffering
Caused by the Elements.
St. Petersburg, May 17.—Horrible
sufferings are reported to have occurred
during the burning of Tomsk, the capi

visited simultaneously by a conflagra
tion and a cyclone, the result being the
destruction of three-quarters of the
town and the loss of hundreds of lives.
The cathedral is in ashes. The walls,
falling, crushed the adjacent hospital,
burying the inmates, who were roasted
alive. The garrison brutally re
fused to render any assistance
in saving lives and property.
The bishop and priests marched through
the burning city with sacred emblems,
administered absolution to the dying
and blessed the dead. The panic-stricken
sufferers huddled together in the street,
ffrmly believing that the end of the
world had come, and abandoned them
selves to stolid despair. The storm was
followed by a sudden fall in the temper

THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.
Recommendations to be Adopted by the
The finance committee met yesterday,
and, among other things, will recom
mend to the council tomorrow that the
bid of Kidder, Peabody & Co., of Bos
ton, for $154,000 sewer "bonds, at 101.79
per cent., be accepted.
The committee also recommends that
the position of pound-keeper be declared
vacant, and that Jonn E. Preston be ap
pointed to the office.
The old meaning of this word was the
tread step or walk. The new meaning
derived from the old, is the individual
who has stepped or walked so much that
to he called by the name tramp, or stig
matized as one of that class seems almc
appropriate alike to young or old. Fro i
this we might infer that the individu :
tramp is one simply who tramps «
walks much. But this would make a
large proportion of our male populati >i
tramps, which as yet is not the case.
Another elemental characteristic of the
genus tramp is the conspicuous absence
of wealth, better told in the single word
poverty. To be yet more precise, it
means having no home. Even this is
not quite all. Our typical tramp is
not perfectly defined until we add
one more stroke of the relentless
dagger of fate, the deadliest of them all;
namely, he is essentially friendless. Ah,
truly, this is the most unkindest cut of
We are thus hastily prepared to sum
up these characteristics into a tolerably
correct definition of the word tramp, and
in future scraps, proceed to the consid
eration of his future lot in life. (1) The
tramp walks. (2) He walks much. (3)
He is without wealth. (4) He is home
less. (5) He is friendless. Putting these
characteristics in a single clause, we
have this numerous man described as a
poor, homeless, friendless wanderer!
The Vine Disease.
There are many vineyardists, not only
in Anaheim but throughout Southern
California, who firmly believe that the
vine disease is a thing of the past. Mr.
Handy, of Orange, we are informed, re
ports that his vines, planted two years
ago, show a vigorous growth and as
great flow of sap as he ever saw in the
palmy days of vine culture in this valley.
The contrast between the growth and
flow of sap this year, compared with
that at the corresponding season of the
past two years, is very marked. He be
lieves that the vine disease has run its
course, and that vines may now be
planted with safety. John Ludeman,
who has leased the Hagar vineyard, at
Orange, says the vines on the seventy
acres he is working are doing better
than they have done for two years. The
growth of wood aud flow of sap is simply
immense, and the set of fruit much
greater than last year. Many predicted
that this vineyard would be dead this
spring, but it seems to have taken not
se of life, but of renewed
vigor. From all quarters in the valley
