GETTING TWO COMMON.
SHOCKING RAILROAD CATASTROPHE
A Fast Express Crashes Into an Excur

h.:NxE, Aug. 17.-A terrible acei
dent, resulting in the instant death of
twelve persons and the serious Injury of
many others, some of whom will prob
ably die, occurred today on the Jura
,simplon Railroad, near this city. A
special excursion train, whicl was con
veying hundreds of villaacis from the
surrounfding country to witness the
fetes in connection with the seventh an
imversary of the foundation of the city of
]'srnw, was stopped at a siding a short
distalice f1rom its destination in order to
allow the regular l'aris express to pass.
The encgiiieer of the express as nearly as
can now be ascertained, had not been
notilied of' te flct that tile excursion
train was on the track ahead of him, and
the conductor of the excursion train

BA LTIMORE, Aug. 13.-The Far mers'
State Alliance adjourned sine die. The
final act of the convention before its
adjournment was tbe declaration, which
was put in the form of a resolution,
that the Farmers' Alliance of the State
or Maryland is in no way antagonistic
to United States Senator Gorman, and
that any publi cation that the farmers
were inimical to or in opposition to the
distinguished Senator of the 1tt was
without warrant and had no founda

CARLISLE ON THE ALLIANCE.
He Does Not Think it Dangerous to the
NARJtA1ANSETT l'IER., Aug. 13.
Senator Carlisle, in an interview to-day,
discussed the political situation at
length. Speaking of the Third Party,
he said: "It appears to be attacked by
a gradual atrophy, i marasmus, which
indicates that the organization will
not, in all probability, be a serious
factor in the election next year. The
movement in the South has substan
tially run its course already. There is
a spectre which confronts tire white I
men in the Southern States-the shadow
of negro supremacy. Rlather than
have negro domination the whites will
bury political difference and unite at
the polls, in order to prevent that which
they regard as a greater evil.
"I regard the presence of a Third
Party ticket in the field in 1892 as con
tingent. Suppose the Republicans
nominate 1irrison, pronouncedly anti
silver in his belief, and the Democrats
place Cleveland at the head of their
ticket. IIr. Cleveland has placed him
self on record against free coinage.
The Third Party would then be con
fronted by the horns of a dilemma.
.'robi.bly they would have a ticket of
their own. if eitheir one of the two
great partirs were to nominate a man
who is disposed to coquette with tihe
tree silver people he would attract the
Alliance vote-as much of it as remains.
The lepublicans will nominate 'resi
dent Harrison, if Air. Blaine will not
consent to stand. The influence of the
ladies of his family may deter Mr.
laine, but there is a tremendous pres
sure upon him from his old party
friends to consent. Ile could sweep
the convention, 1 think. No Republi
can is as strong as Maine. I (o not
think that he will consent to run. lIe
has been very ill, and he is ill to-day.
If Ar. llaine were a candidate for the
Presidency I should not expect a cam
paign based on the old charges against
him. The allegations of the canvass
when Maine ran against Cleveland are
now burnt powder. The Democrats
would gain nothing by revamping
them. Air. Blaine enjoys a very con
siderable personal popularity in the
Democratic party, largely o vlng to the
course of the Deimocratic press, which
made him out an opponent of the force
bill and an antagonist of the McKinley
bill, but he is really as high a l'rotec
tionist as the worst 'o them all. Mr.
Ilaine struck a popular chord when he
sang out for reciprocity, and lie is now
reaping the benelit of Iis own popu
larity. I think Mr. lilaine could be
heatenl by a united and vigilant D>e
Senator Carlisle ex pressed t i e
Opinion that a free silver bill will pass
the next Congress, and that 'resident
Hlarrison would be greatly embarrassed
by it. "As regards the Democratic can
didate, M[r. Cleveland, in my judgment,
is still the strongest. Ile may have
offended the extreme pro-silver men by
his remarks against free coinage, but lie
enjoy a wonderful reputation among tihe
people. The plain, everyday folks in the
West and South swear by him. They
trust him implicitly; they regard him
as conscientious and safe. I know of
no one )emocrat who enjoys the con
fidence of I lie people to such a-degree as
I Careful With Your Cottoni.
Messrs. Alexander Sprunt & Son, of
Wilmington, N. C., recently issued a
circular to tihe farmers of the South
which contains some valuable sugges
tions in reference to cotton. In this
circular they say that accumulation of
low grade cotton has overstocked the
markets o1 the world, and this suirlus
will probably have to be saicrificedl at
(xtremneiy low p)rices. On the other
handl, the supply of good cotton is (ilite
limited,. anid there is always a market
for the better goods. It is therefore a
matter of the utmost importance to
our friends, the planters, that extraor
dhina~ry carie be taken to pnick the cotton
only when it is perfectly dIry, avoiding
stamned and sandly cotton, whIich should
be most carefully kept separate from
the better qiualities. Tlhen exercise care
in setting tihe gin saws, so as to avoidl
cutting the staple, and whecn packed,
see that no gin fails, inferior cotton,
sand nor water is permitted in the hal
ing. This p)reparation will insure a
readiy sale at the best current prices,
while the neglect of these precautions
will probably cause a loss of fromi live
to ten diollar~s a bale to the farmer upon
every hale he prodi ices. II1itherto many
of our p)lanters couild afford to take the
easier esourse antd gin good, bad and( ini
different cotton together, but as tIhe in
dications point to ruinons prices for
mfedliumn and inferior grades next
season, it b)ehroove every cotton pro
duicer to exercise the utmost care in
p)reparing his crop for market.

Ihan he ev'er saw before. lIe says that
f or three iiles there is a line' sandiy
beach, from 50 to 150) yards5 deelp. On
this beach was a sight to fill a sealer
with longing. "I have seen a field of
ice on the Atlantic, oif whImi was taken
2-10,x seals, and another time I saw
250,(Xl takein oif about six acres, but
they wvere not one-eighth so) plenrtifurl
there as were tire fur seals on St. I 'aul's
Island, wvhile the water all arrounud was
actually alive wvith them, Look whre
you would, it was moving with seals.
As far as we could see was covered with
them. Tfhere is one thing, however,
I hat will affect the seals, and that is the
fearful state of the air--so many seals
slaughtered and their dead bodlies left
to rot hans so tainted tire air that one
can scarcely breathe. You can smell
tire fetid odor miles away from the
island. There is no doubt that tire
snriell of the rotton flesh dojes more in
jury to thre seals than alli thc sealers
that go to bring seals,"

WASINOTON, Aug. 17.-Col. L. L.
olk, president or the National Far
ner's Alliance, was seen in regard to the

United States Senate. So far we have
anded three. The first was Senator
Hampton, of South Carolina; then John
J. Ingalls, of Kansas; followed by Gid
3on C. Moody. of South Dakota. The
next one to go into retirement will be
John Sherman, of Ohio. Matt Ranson,
f North Carolina, will also be retired.
rhe fate of these two Senators is just as
certainly sealed as that of John J. In
MISTAKEB NOT TO it, RE'EATED.
"We inade two mistakes that will not
be repeated," continued Col. Polk.
"With complete control of the North
Carolina Legislature we allowed Sena
tor Vance to be re-elected on the
strength of his promise that lie would
be a faithful political servant to the in
terest of the people. The election of
Governor Gordon, of Georgia, was also
a mistake, as he has shown himself to
be t'ar iore interested in his own per
sonal success than that of the Alliance.
llereaf'ter no promises to the politicians
of the old parties will be accepted."
"flow do you propose to defeat John
Sherman in Ohio?'
"We have him defeated. In legislative
districts the Alliance will support candi
dates pledged to vote against Sherman.
The voting strength of the actual or
ganization is40,000. Our members how
ever, are doing missionary work among
the farmers generally, and thousands of
voters not yet mentioned with the Al
liance itself will be rallied against Slier
man. If yon would look over the cor
respondence from Ohio you would be
convinced that it is now an impossibil
ity for him to succeed himself."
"Is the light being made on McKinley
"It is not. As I stated, we are now
cleaning out the United States Senate.
Governorships are not valuable to us at
the present time. It would have a good
moral effect to elect State olicers, mere
ly as an evidence of the strength of the
organization, but our primary object is
to secare the balance of power in the
Legislature, which enacts the laws, and
elect Un'ted States Senators.

"Probably many Alliance members
will support the people's ticket in Ohio,
but. there is no movemeut to have them
do so. Consequently the Alliance is not
fighting McKinley; but don't infer from
that that I think lie will be elected."
"CanI Senator Wilson, of Iowa, be re
"We are not figuring much on results
fi omi lowa," replied Col. Polk. "The
organization in that State is weak,
though the popular assumption is that
we are making a great fight there. That
idea is a mistaken one. The most we
expect to get out of the contest in Iowa
is to determine what strength the move
enait is developing there. No steps are
ex l)ected. Inm tihe Northwiest, however,
thme voters seem to be more ready to
break away from thme old p)arty than in
other sections of' the country."
"WVill the Alliance undert~ake to dic

A.s matters stand no0w, 1 think not.
Thme State is rnot yet suilicienmtly organ

A Willd Day In Chicago.
Cn icAGo, August 15.-Wheat is In
deed booming as well as the crops of
this country with a prospective short
age in Europe. December, which
reached ,,41 08 on the regular board to
day and sold this afternoon on the curb
at $1 10. Later ou calls were quoted
at $1 14, sold as high as $1 18. Of
course these are not market figures. but
they serve to show the frame ot mind
the traders are in. It was thought, by
brokers on the board of trade that Fri.
day was a busy day, but before today
was over it had been passed.
It, was one of the wildest (lays ever
known on the floor. December touchedl
* 1 08, greatly to the consternation of
the bears. Th'fey were partly prepared
for the great boonm yesterday, but when
the bulls took hold this morning and
sent prices up with a frightful rush, the
short element was simply dunmbfounded.
The bears had said that *1 must be
climbed, now let's jump in the morning
andl smash things. They (lid make any
number of attempts to (10 this, b)ut the
result was not very encouraging. With
all sorts of good arg'ument the bulls were
nol to be routed.
Such jumps in figures as were wit
nessed today had not been seen since
IIutchmnnon's famous September corner
in 1888. It was only for a short time
that the prices maintaIned themselves
at *1 08. The bears soon rallied and
with a mighty onslaught bore the price
to $1 05[. They coul not hold there
and wheni the session closed at 12 o'clock
the figures stood at $1 064.
A PitIful Story.

SI[ANOI[AI, August 17.-There is no
disguising the fact that a most serious
state of affairs political exists in this
country at the present moment, and the
combined fleets of the powers may be
called upon at any time to take effective
action. Danger clouds have been seen
on the horizon for months past, smold

the populace have repeatedly broken
out into flame; but apparently without,

strength of the volcano which is threat.
ening a most disastrous outbreak. In
ternal affairs, undoubtedly, are the in
ward and actual cause of the displays of
ill-Feeing agalitst foreigners which are
only outward signs of the movement in
progress. In this city at present a state
of great excitement prev'ils at the in
creased, and still increasing, tenor be
tween the Chinese government and min
isters of the foreign powera. From all
ai-pearances the former are obstinate in
their refusal to redress the Injury (lone
foreigners during the recent riots. Some
people say that the government dare
not take this step demanded in common
justice to the powers for fear of incur
r.ng a storm of popular disapproval. In
any case there is no doubt as to the ob
stinacy of the reflusal to right the wrongs
inflicted upon foreign residents of China.
On the other hand there is also no
reason to doubt that if the Chinese au
thorities do not yield to the firm demands
of the ministers of the powers. concert

war vessels of various nations repre
sented in these waters is imminent. Too
much damage has been (lone and too
many outrages have been perpetrated
upon foreign residents of this country to
permit of representatives of the powers
submitting any longer to be put oil* with
vague statements which in the main ac
tually mean that China cannot or will
not redress wrongs (lone to peaceful
foreigners, and that China does not ad
mit that the latter have been outrage
ously treated in their persons or in their
possessions by Chirese mobs over which
the authorities seem Lo have no control.
Such is the state of aflairs. It is now
known that foreign ministers have been
compelled to inform the Chinese gov
ernment that a joint naval demonstra
tion of an ellective nature, in which
French, American, British and German
squadrons will take part, will be ordered
in the near future unless speedy repara
tion is made for injuries, outrages and
abuses complained of' by the ministers
of the powers. Naturally the fore-in
population of this city, being aware of
the firm stand taken by their minlsters,
and having knowledge of the ultimatum
sent to the Chinese government, is In a
state of considerable anxious expecta
tion, and will so remain until the reply
of the Chinese government is made
