The pretty, pretty maiden swinging all alone
Is filled with dainty fancies by the lilly shown,
Of the lovely dresses from pearly gray to brown,
Oh! won't she do some shopping when she gets back to town.
The laces, ribbons, satins, and woolen fabrics too,
All have their charms for maidens, captivate their view;
But her heart is fixed unchanging upon the fav'rite store,
And you'll see Munson" & McrLuiAiiA painted on the door.

not on that list. A mammoth three-tory
brick hotel building with basement is
being built by Mr. Peter Bruer just across
the street, from the First National bank. It
is to have some thirty or forty rooms,
heated with steam and new furniture from
top to bottom. There are two new brick
store rooms nearing completion just north
of the new hotel building and many other
improvements too numerous to mention.

TOPEKA, Kan., Oct. 11 The statement
has been circulated in financial circles in
the east that the state of Kansas is now
out of funds for the purchase of bonds.
The statement is wholly untrue. In order

Chicago, 111., Oct. 11. A local paper
says: "The Trans-Missouri Auxiliary as
sociation had a stormy time at its meetiug
yesterday. The application of the Union
Pacific that its business west of Denver
be extended from the jurisdiction of the
association for the reason that the Denver
& Rio Grande's business west of Denver,
Colorado Springs and Pueblo was uot
amenable to the provisions of the agree
ment, was under consideration. Mr. Mul
len said no other line except the Union
Pacific was subject to the provisions of the
agreements so far as Colorado traffic was
concerned, the Denver & Fort Worth
having withdrawn from the associa
tion because it could not stand
the Rio Grande's competition. A per
sistent effort had been made ever since the
tormation of the Trans-Missouri associa
tion to bear as heavily as possible upon
the Uuion Pacific competition and to pre
vent it getting its due proportion of Colo
lado traffic They would not stand such
treatment any longer. The Union Pacific
proposition was voted down. ISeing.asked
bv a reporter as to what his compatiy pro
nosed to do in the matter Mr. Mullen said
he had requested President Adams aud
Vice President Holcomb for permission to
give notice of the withdrawal ot the
Uuion Pacific from the association aud he
had no doubt that tney would readilv
grant such permission. Nearly as, many
roads were outside of the association as
were in it and the Union Pacific was the
ouly one in the as-ocmtiou that had inde
pendent lines west of Denver and Colorado
Springs. The general opinion is that the

comptoir d'escompte directors
London, Oct. 11. Attachments were is
sued in Paris yesterday against the prop
erty of nine of the directors of the bank
rupt Comptoir d'Escompte,' which wus
ruined by the fuilure of the copper corner.
Six of the responsibledirectorsof the insti
tution are now imprisoned, having beeu
convicted of violating the banking law in
advancing the funds of the bank as loans
upon copper ceetificates. The directors
aud accountants were sentenced to pay to
the liquidators of the bank for thbeueflt
of its creditors the sum of 760,000 and to
stand committed until the amount is paid.
This means a life sentence to most of those
convicted, as they were themselves ruined
by the calamity their illegal actions
hi ought upon the bank. Several of the
directors who are involved in the sentence
took no active part in the management of
the institution and though technically
guilty with the rest, really knew nothing
of the recklessness with which the money
of the institution was staked upon a
gambling adventure. Efforts are being
made to secure the reiease of these men
from the terms of the sentence and they
will in all probability be successful.

Topeka, Kan., Oct.' 11. The couuty at
torneys of the various counties through
which the Rock Island railway runs held
a meeting here today to take steps to re

in the United St ites circuit court against
the Rock Island by the Metropolitan Trust
company of New York, which holds the
first mortgage on the line in Kansas.
Should the mortgage be foreclosed every
couuty which voted bonds to aid the con

their stock will become worthless. All the

Chicago, 111., Oct. ll. The memorial
addressed by the cattlemen of Caldwell,
Kan., to the commission firms at the stock
yards asking them to adopt the percentage
plan for commission's, and promising to
ship stock to any firm that would adopt
it, met with but slight approval at the
stock yards. Its adoption, it is said, means
a cut in the commissions for the stock
yards people of 10 to 15 per cent. Secretary
JBaker said today that the matter would
probably receive the attention of the ex
change. LEGITIMATE BUSINESS BRISK.
All Other Years Excelled in Volume The
Money Supply Bather Tight,
NEW York, Oct. 11. R, G. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade says: The gov
ernment crop report was very encourag
ing, but loss- of gold by the gte.it foreign
banks, over $1,100,000 by England. $4,000,
000 by Germauy and $2,100,000 by France,
was large euough to increase apprehension
of monetary pressure. Iiarge shipments
went from Ixndou to Brazil aud Egypt.
These two opposing influences ruled the
markets during the week. Crops are large
aud busines heavy and the commercial
outlook most favorable, but money is com
paratively close, aud there is a possibility
that it may get closer yet. At New
York thus far there has been no
increase, but rather a relaxation
of pre-sure and foreign exchange is nnal
tred since last week. Theoutward move
ment of products is large, exports from
New York for two weeks excetiing lost
year's by 16.7 per cent, while the increase
in imports ii but 3 percent. Large foreign
investment of capital in American indus
trial enterprises -re reported, and of late
no considerable foreigu aelttng of securi
ties. But the movement of money to the
interior continue l.-true. the treasury alone
forwarding fSoO.OCO on Thursday.
Reports do not indicate increasing pres
sure in the interior money markets. At
all cities reporting the supply at nearly
all is ample, and the anticipated ne in
rates at Cnicaco doea net yet occar.
The volume "of trade is increasing at
nearly all interior points reporting and this
involves a larger demand for money. The
bank clearingslast week were2;j percent,
larger than last year at Xew York, 2 per
cent, smaller at Boston. Philadelpnia.
Chicago, the decrease teiug large at Chi
cago, but 11 per cent. larger at all the
otiier cities taken together This increase
at points where speculative activity ha
Ieat influence indicates a greater volume
of legitimate business than has ever been
recorded at tJUis season in any previous
tur and the be&rr mil road earniasrs. 10
per cent, above last vear for Septembrr,
tell the same story. 7rhe government crop
report was rather a surprise to many as it
shifted wheat estimates from a fraction
over 12 to 12.8 bushels per acre,
making the probable yield not much
below 500,000,000 bushels. The corn report
indicates the largest crop ever raised, and
the same may be said of cotton, with the
proper reservation that early frosts may
yet greatly reduce the outcome. With
heavy crops business in all departments
will be stimulated and at the same time
the demand for money will be increased.
Pork products are not much changed;
coffee and sugar a little weaker; oil ami
minor metals substantially unchanged.
Another geueral indication of prosperity
is seen in large sales of boots and shoes,
though prices were never so low at any
time in thirty-five years.
The business failures during the last
seven days number 214, as compared with
20(5 last week and 192 the week previous
to the last For the corresponding week
last year l he figures were 227.

Chicago, 111., Oct. 11. George Olds,
gederal traffic manager of the Canadian
Pacific railroad, was in the city last even

rumor that the Canadian Pacific was in an
aliiance with the Union Pacific to form a
new transcontinental route with the Man
itoba as the connecting link between the
Union Pacific at Sioux City and the Cana
dian Pacific system at St. Paul and
Duluth, Mr. Olds said: "We are not in
any such deal, but I do not know what ar
ragements our connections may make;
that is another thing."

BRECKINRIDGE ON THE COMING SES
SION. Washington, Oct. ll. Representative
Clifton R. Breckenridge, of Arkansas.says
that the Democrats will not throw a single
objection in the way of rational unsection
al legislation by the Republican majority.
"The action of congress," continued Mr.
Breckinridge, "by enacting a sensible
business-like measure of reduction of the
tariff, on the line of popular ideas of re
form, takes the tariff matter out of poli
tics for a while. I am impressed with the
belief that we shall have to take up the
fight in 1892 that we inado in 18S3, but it is
certain that the Democratic members of
the next congress will bo at least as firm
as the Republican members of the last In
seeing that a measure gets before the
house and comes to a vote before both
houses. We will agree to bring the bill to
a vote some time in both houses and let the
majority take the responsibility for legis
lationthat is to say, if the measure is not
obliviously unfair. Mr. Carlisle's posi

great abilities and experience, the confi
dence reposed in his sagacity and his un

that he will lead the minority iu the Fifty
GRAVE CHARGES AGAINST CONSUL
Washington, Oct. 11. Yesterday M.
Benezuli, the Morocco merchant whoe
complaints against William Baird Ljwis,
United States consul at Tangier, was
laid before President Harrison Tuesday,
was accorded an audience by Secretary
Blaine. Benezuli alleges that Consul
Lewis received f!35 for extending the pro
tection of the government of the United
States to himself, thinking such protec
tion would be of benefit to him in his
business. Other apparently damaging
disclosures in the management of the
office under Consul Lewis were made. At
the close of the interview Secretary Blaine
wrote a cablegram to Consul Lwi-j direct
ing him to appear at the state department
and meet the charges made agam-.t him.
Au article in the Madrid treaty between
the United States and Morocco authorizes
and empowers the representatives ot the

in Prance Record o
New York. Oct. 11. An electric line
man met with a horrible death at the
corner of Center aud Chambers street at 1
o'clock this afternoon from contact with
an electric light wire. Ho was employed
by the Western Union company and pre
sented a terrible sight when he died on
the network of wires in mid air, while the
deadly fluid actually made his body sizzie
and tne blood poured out on the sidewalk
and over the clothes of the horrified sDec
tators. The accident occurred in the mid
dle of the day in one of the busiest parts of
the city and was witnessed by a largo
crowd of oeople. The firemen brought out
a ladder and one went up with a pair of
shears to cut the wires. The man was
found to be dead.
AN AWFOL SIGHT.
The man's face wa- turned toward the
walk. The wire in fifteen minutes had
burned off half the face of the man. The
left arm was seen to be burning and every
few seconds the blue flames spurted out
from the vatious parts of the body. Hun
dreds of people stood shivering as they
looked at the awful sight overhead. No
one dared to go near. Even the firemen's
faces blanched with horror.
Immediately after the accident Mayor
Gnuit was notified by Private Secretary
Crane. The mayor gave order that the
wires that cause'i the accident be cut at
once. Secretary Crane said that the mayor
would act promptly in the matter, and it
is possible that he may order the cutting
of all electric light wires above ground to
night, when a lr.re part of the city will be
in darkness. The body of the lineman
was left on the wires for more than a half
hour, when it was taken down after the
current had been turned off. Deputy Cor
oner Jenkins, who has witnessed some hor
rifying sights during his official career,
said this spectacle was the niOft ghastly
he had ever seen. He was on the street
while the efforts were being made to get
the body down and afterward-, viewed the
body. "The wires," he said, "which cut
through the lineman's cheeks had
evidently euteied at the mouth.
It had burned clear Into
tho cheek bone. The cut iu the throat
had severed the windpipe and many mus
cles and veins just below Adam's apple.
If the man had remained su.p nded iu the
air much Jonuer the head would have
been completely severed from the body.
The shock may or may not killed him m
stantiv. but it certainly retideied him un
conscious so that hii face fell forward on I
the other wires. I cau not say just which I
wire he caught hold of first, for his band
dropped from it after the lingers had been
amputated by the burns and fallen to the
