persons in New York ConsulGeneral 1
of Chi F A Bellen when asked to
day what is thought of time probability
of a war with Bolivia said
I do not think that war has been de
clared If i had 1 would know very
probably still I admit that Chili wi
proceed against Bolivia a little later
Just now she is not in a fit condition to
war with Bolivia The majority of the
navy is in the hands of the insurgents
and Chili could not reach Bolivia over
mid because of the great deserts and
mountains As second President BaS j
mac < a get his new ships something
will be done I think
Etcher Obarrios ConsulGeneral of
Bolivia thought as Mr Bellen did
Chdi has long had a desire for the

in the shape of guano bitroques etc
in the vicinity of the desert De la Afu

ceded to Chili after the last war from

Bolivia receives onehalf of the dutnvs
collected by the two countries and it
Was t insure i them that the belligerency

Her Crops Fail and She Call

The Government Issues a Decree Totally
Prohibiting the Export of Grain From
Russia
LoNDoN August 10Both the Times
and Daily News have been collecting
exhaustive report from Russia and In
dia about the failure of the when
crops The results are more startling
than was supposed In view of the
failure of the crops throughout Great
Britain the Daily Yews admits that
unless abundant grain is forthcoming
from America Europe will boon the
Verne of starvation before the next bar
vest The Russian government has al
rely taken the extreme step of pro
hibifing all export of corn trom Russia
for the remainder of the year Last
year Russia bent nearly 4000000 quar
ters ot wheat to England nearly ole
thin of the entire amount imported
NEW YORK August 10 Bradstreets
publishes a review in which it places
the probable shortage in the Europeai
wheat crop at 281OOJ000 bushels only
177000000 can be supplied by the
United States and India and com
menting on it says
The report is an extremely bullish
one when Mr Bears wellknow care
and conservatism are taken into ac
count It will be observed how guard
jiiy rafeieuceis made to the probabl
emct of the short crop of rye in centra
and easter Europe and what the
probable effect will he if full allowance
be made for It Allowing 160000000
bushels ol wheat for export from the
United States to Europe mind 33000

ST PJSTUKSUUUO August 10The
I graesituation caused by the failure
of the t l lOpS in Russia is causing the
greatest appiehension in all circles
The GraaManin declaics that the local
administration wil I he unable to make
provision for the inhabitants in the
distr > tsed provinces i speculators are
allowed to export corn or if the pi ice of
corn is not checked The paper de
ni mdi that the government immedi
ately place a heavy duty on the export
of rye
Mle Financial Messenger declares it
wl be almost impossible for Russia to
export corn this year
I is ollieialh announced that the
orenunent has not yet contemplated
iseuinc a decree totally prohibiting the
xpoFt of jjijiin from Ruhsia but the
paitial failure of the crop demands
that provision be made for the people
living in the ditiessed provinces ls and
consequently the export of grain from

From a Goslten Democrat
EDITQU DESPATCH As the election
is in tile history of the past and the ux
tement it created is no more a few
words from Goshen relative thereto
might be of interest to the readers of
TUE DESPATCH
Our election opened on time with three
epunliiMii judges The voting was
Ih ely and was conducted strictly on I
party lines There u o no betting as
to results
Wiibii it was known that the presid
ing judge was the Republican cundi
ir 4 r
It fur Justice of the Peace became
parent to tae Democrates that they
Mild lose this precinct and some who
weak rather than be taunted wit
efeat bolted their own party and voted
vith the favored one
Now Mr Editor I would not reflect
> n the integrity of our judges of elect
on for I esteem them as the best men
> f their party in our vicinity but LS
me holding it to be the foremost duty
If a Democrat he stand on time watch
ower to guard that precious jewel the
re ballot and a fair count of the sam
i fair vote no favors and equal rights
5 alt and as Cesar would have Ins
rife not only free from coiruption but
ibove suspicion I would earnestly ask
Messrs Wliitecotton Huish Co
vhen they visit Goshen again to give
e he hoys a lesson on civil rights and
election reform Now when judges of
lection are all ofone party nomin
> es for olilce and registration officers
ill combined that makes a pretty strong
enttalized party government Too
strong for A DEMOCRAT

SKIN GRAFTING
Human Flesh Being Attached
a Wounclecl Man
The Scientific Operation now Being Per
formed on 3 Railroad Man Wounded
In a Wreck
NEW YORK August HThin slices
of flesh and patches of skin are being
grafted to the body of Warren S Low
a switchman on the Hudson Rive
railroad The patient who is at the
Manhattan Hospital was terribly in
jured in an accident at One Ilundm
and Thirtieth street last June He was
run down by a train and a section of
lesh nearly four inches square was
torn out of his thigh The wound did
lot readily heal and to make time
trouble worse gangrene set in Low
was to weak to survive amputation of
the leg and so the diseased flesh was
cut out
That of course deepened the wounds
and increased their area To fill up
the orifice pieces of flesh were taken
rom the patients body but he sue
cessfully protested against this procedure
edure Dr Bates senior surgeon of
he hospital then volunteered to be
come a martyr to science and his flesh
is being attached to that of the wounded
man Already two pieces have been
taken from his body
The first operation was performed
etersday afternoon and this was
followed by the contribution of
a bit of skin by the heroic doctor
These operations will be continued at
stated intervals until the hurt has been
cured If necessary other surgeons
zIthlve wilJltlg to subject them
iiatvesrcyrthThlkiiiilir
Dr Bates and the switchman were
both doing well yesterday and suffering
comparatively little The wounds ol
both are healing slowly r and the process
of skin and flesh grafting is regarded
as a certain success
Another Railroad In Mexico
SAN FKAXCISCO August 11C P
Huntington is reported to have ob
tained a concession from the Mexican
government for a railroad from the Pa
cific Coast to the centre of Mexico The
government will donate 17000000 to
build and equip a railway from nearly
opposite Cape St Lucas in Lower Cali
fornia to Torreon in the state of Coa
liuila a distance of nearly 1300 miles
This concession was formerly owned
by a man named McWood and the line
of survey was to have run from the port
of Guaymas through Sonora touching
at Culiacan in Sinaloa and terminating
at Torreon the junction of the Mexican
Central and International railroads
The Intel national is aLeady con
trolled by Huntington and this last l con
cession will give him a monopoly of
the important railroad traffic of Mes
icoMcWood
McWood failed to carry the road
through and thus lost theconcession
Huntington will get 88000 a mile from
the tate of Durango for the line run
ning through that state

AN EARTHQUAKE
People Ensiling from Houses
are Thrown to the Ground
For a Few Brief Seconds the Day of
Judgment Seemed to Eeigrn Hills
Slide from their Foundations
YmiA A T Aug IL Daily arri
vals from the region of Sonora on the
Colorado river report the most wonder
ful changes in topography aud appear
ance of the country caused by the re I
cent earthquake The damage done
was principally to stockmen who have
lost many a head of cattle The Coco

point which is seventy miles south of
Yuma was the center of the great
earthquake of July 30 On Thursday
morning I premonitory rumblings gave
notice of the coming storm The earth
trembled underfoot then came a
mighty crash as though subterranean
artillery by the thousand pieces had I
been discharged The people rushed
rom I their houses at the first signal to
be thrown flat on their faces The
adobe houses just vacated wormed to
pieces were ground together and then
umbled in ruins The air was filled
with clouds of dust
For a few brief seconds the lay of I
judgment seemed to reign The teni
ded people cautiously rose to their feet
and moved about horrified to find that
Whore before bad been solid ground
now yawned cracks and crevices appa
tently without bottom Hills had slid
from their foundations and occupied
new stations The very river itself had
disappeared Where before flowed a
shallow sluggish stream of ochre was
non only a channel of mud
This did not however remain long
and the liver gradually reappeared but
yet in a diminished volume Reocmr

force Owing to the country being
sparsely settled no damage to life oc
curred so far as known and there was
little property to damage
Lerdo has been for years chiefly a
relic of blasted hopes The recent ec
centric millionaire Thomas H Blythe
in connection with General Andradleof
Mexico came into possession of a vast
stretch of country in time state of Sonora
bordering the Colorado river and com
mencing at the American boundary
line The extent of the grant was
about 300 000 acres The conditions
were that the country must be settled
by the colonization of a certain num
ber of families The soil is rich bottom
land adapted to the growth of most
of the proudiictions of the southern
states such as tobacco corn cotton
etcThe
The textile plant known as wild
hemp grown on thousands of acres
During BIythes lifetime a few hogs of
tine bleed were placed on the grant
and have increased so greatly that they
are now estimated to number 3000
They roam at will along the river bot
tom and have become so savage as to
be dangerous to man They live chief
ly on the wild potato which grows the
size of a walnut The present owner
has a man catching the hogs and cur
ing the meat The Colorado river over
flows its low banks annually and con
sequently the country is naturally irri
gated
The death of Blythe in 1883 left his
Senora colony scheme in its infancy
with very little accomplished His in
terest reverted to his partner General
Andrade The latter by the payment
of heavy expenses and bounties in
duced fifty tamilies mostly from San
Francisco to emigrate and settle on
his immense grant but he discovered
when too tote that he had not secured
the material which makes empires
Notwithstanding the fact that every
thing was furnished them Not many
months elapsed until they had nearly
abandoned Lerdo and found their way
back to Yuma and eventually to San
Francisco
Leaving Yuma for the first few miles
ranches are scattering along the river
bank then a long stretch of deseit and
finally come the fertile lands of Lerdo
after two days tiavel Between the
river and mountains is the country
upon which the wrath of the Almighty
seems to have rested Time crust of the
earth is unsteady and unsubstantial
volcanoes spew out mud and others
rain boiling water and still others
send forth a thousand hissing jets of
steam
Slight earthquake shocks are so fre
quent usually as to be hardly notice
able The slight rumbling of a passing
tremor may cause the stranger to make
a casual remark or perhaps be strong
enough so that the pious Mexican will
cross himself and mutter a prayer
Southern Arizona was the scene ages
ago of great seismic agitation Wels
have been found showing repairs thrice
made from damage inflicted by earth
quakes Not within the memory of
white inhabitants however have strong
buildings been thrown down or water
turned from their courses
