(From ono of bor latest photographs

has decided to spend her time
in future at Balmoral or at Os

prince and princess of Wales the use
of Buckingham palace and Windor cas

seems to feel greatly the weight of her
years and her majesty is quoted as
having repeatedly remarked dur
ing her last stay in this city:
"This will bo ray last visit to London."
Color is given to the rumors in circu

by tho queen as she bowed in reply to

which lined the routo from Bucking

'Ni:w Yoiik, Aug. 1. It. G. Dun & Co.,
in their weekly review of trade! say:
Business conditions haVo clearly im

are more promising as respects an

little beyond the troubles of specula

weeks, 0,.-ill4,a(10 bushels, against 3,422,

corn to make a now low record at 30.12
cents, and prospects are generally fa
Cotton advanced a quarter on reports
of injury, but there are really few who
expect less than a large yield. Several
weeks of extremely slack demand for
cotton goods have brought a further
reduction in print cloths to 2.44 cents
instead of the advance expected in con
sequence of the stoppage of four
million spindles, but prints arc soiling
morn freely, whilo brown and bleached
goods are dull, except for export kinds.
The woolen mills do not gain, light
weights opening S to y3 per cent,
lower in price than last year, und sales
of wool now reported are less than a
quarter of a full week's consumption.
Orders taken in light weights have been
very few, and for low priced goods.
The boot and shoo industry has se
cured slight further advances
from the lowest point, in
brogans and calf boots and shoes, but
new orders are scanty, the more be

questioned. Leather is stubbornly held

so light that few mills can run and tho

bars are now being sold at less than
1,03 cents. A ray of encouragement
comes to rail milb, two considerable"
sales having been made, 23,000 to a
New England road nnd 10,000 by the
new Premier Steel company of Indian
apolis, but otherwise sales are small.
Trade in wire , nails has been
so light that even the tri
fling allotment of (15,000 kegs
for July is supposed to havo exceeded
sales, and the association is in session
at Boston to consider the matter. The
billet pool has been constantly under
sold by middlemen and open-hearth
steel men had a session Friday at
which reduction of prices was dis
cussed. Many contracts for structural
works are being held back, and there
is very littlo done in that line, and or
ders for plate and pipe are scarce. It
is not strange that pig is weak, Besse
mer being St 1.50 at Pittsburgh, and
southern somewhat lower at tho east.
The volume of domestic trade, judg
ing from exchanges, has been small
even for midsummer.
It is not surprising that failures have
been considerably in magnitude, and
in 23 days of 'July defaulted liabilities
were 812,0G0,4S1, against 83,302,727 in
25 days last year. Failures for tho

DISASTROUS TIDAL VAVE.

Shanghai, Aug. 1. The recent dis
astrous tidal wave along the coast of
northern Japan has been paralleled
by a similar phenomenon on tho coast
of Ilalchua, northeast of the province
of IClangsu, in which Shanghai is situ
ated. The news of the disaster did not
reach here before Saturday owing to
the lack of facilities for communica
tion with the part of the country dev
astetl. There suddenly appeared in
the Yellow sua a huge bank of water
that was seen rushing shoreward
with terrific velocity. The water
on the coast was shallow, and when
the wave was some distance away it
began to comb and the roar could bo
heard for a distance. From the stories
of eyewitnesses tho wave was five
miles wide. Thousands of tons of
water were thrown for miles inland,
and everything in its path was swept
away. Many villages were entirely
destroyed, and it is estimated that
fully 4,000 people perished. All the
cattle were drowned and the rite fields
were obliterated. It is expected that
survivors will meet with a worse fate
than by drowning, for with the de
struction of'tho rice fields, famine will
stare them in the face in the autumn.
In many cases, whole families were
lost. There is already much suffering
among the survivors, who, miserably
poor before the disaster, are now abso
lutely homeless and fecdless. It is
feared that later details will add to the
number of lives lost and the extent of

ran under trees when rain began to

was terrific and the rain fell in a flood.

Atlantic City, N. ,1., Aug. I. As a
result of the terrible collision on the
Meadows Thursday evening between
tho Reading railroad express from
Philadelphia and the llridgeton excur
sion tiain out of here, 47 people arc
dead and 4t aio lying in the hospital
here more or less seriously hurt. Of the
in juicd in the hospital several arc ex
pected to die.
Besides those .seriously enough hurt
to be in the hospital, a t-eore or more
of people vvere bruised and shaken up
and went to cottages. The fearful
shock of the collision is illustrated in
the fact that of the 17 dead 42 were
killed outright. Of the dead, 42 have
been identified and tho bodies of threa
women, oue man and a boy are lying
at the undei taking shops awaiting
The responsibility for the accident is
hard to place at this time, but the bur
den of it seems to rest upon the dead
engineer of the Heading train, Edward
Farr, though an official investigation,
may clear his name.
The uninjured and those only slight
ly hurt among tho Uridgcton excursion
party were in a fren?y of agony. Tho
train struck was the first section of the
excursion train, and those on the sec
ond section flocked to the hospital and
morgue as tho victims were, brought in.
Two miles out on the Meadows tho
wrecking crews of the Heading and
West Jersey railroads were toiling by
tho light of huge bonfires to clear
away the wreck and splinters
of broken cars. ISy dawn they
had practically cleared up tho
tracks. firoken and battered
out of shape, tho huge engino of the
express lay on its side by the track.
Pinned beneath, with his pale, blood
stained face staring into those of tho
men working was Farr, tho engineer.
The scenes as the bodies were iden
tified were sad and pathetic beyond
Houscr, tho operator in tho signal
tower, certainly set danger signals for
tho Heading train when ho gave the
excursion the right of way. The ques
tion is, did he set the. signal in time for
Engineer Farr to see it? Or did he be
come excited when he saw a collision
imminent apd, sjt it too late for Farr to
sfbp his train? Farr was an experienced
engineer and it seems incredible that
he would rush past a danger signal
down to a crossing that was being ap
proached by n train he could clearly
Further, tho Reading has the right
of way at the crossing over Pennsyl
vania trains, and still further, an ex
press has the right of way before an
excursion special Still, in view of tho
statement of Engineer Orelner, of tho
excursion train, who was interviewed
in Camden Friday, and the position of
tho signal arms, Hie burden of the re
sponsibility nt present rests with tbo
so on down the list.
