Long and Useful Life of a Pioneer
Brought to a Close.
Josuha Williams, the well known
hardwood merchant, died at 4 o'clock
yesterday morning at his residence,
104 E. Sixteenth street. Mr. Williams
had been a sufferer from bright's

Interurban Passengers Put Up a
Job on Thomas Lowry.
There is an irony in fate. Thomas, Lowry.
president of the Twin City Rapid Transit
company, went over to St. Paul earljr Monday
evening on business. He took a late car
home. It was caught in the storm a mile out
from St. Paul, and the sand which washed
onto the track stopped locomotion. Some
wit on board recognized Mr. Lowry and told
his friends who the distinguished man was.
Then the passengers began to drop sly re
marks about the slowness of the cars and the
lack of accommodations, and some of them
wished they had their five cents back— all
this so audibly that the street railway mag
nate could overhear it plainly.
Mr. Lowry stood it as long as he could,
and then went through the car and person
ally refunded the five cents fare to each per
son. Most of them took back their fares
and trudged back to St. Paul. Mr. Lowry,
however, remained in his car and reached
Minneapolis safe and sound at 2:30 a. m.

He alluded to the immense growth of
the Christian Endeavor idea and its
non-sectarian principles. And said the
national life depends on its acknowl

France the legislative body solemnly

A Swiiiß Room for Carriers.
A big room in the fourth floor of the post
office building is being fitted up for the use
of the mail carriers. It will be known aa
the "swing" room, and is especially designed
as a waiting room for carriers who have ex
tra time on their hands. It often happens
that a carrier cannot begin his work as soon
as he arrives at the oflice. or that he must
wait on his return for the second delivery.
As he is not allowed to work over eight
hours a day, and the extra time must be
spent outside the work room of the post
office, the provision of the swing room is a
wise one. Such an arrangement is operated
in nearly all the other large cities.

MOORE BROS.' FAILURE
Received In Chicago With Compara
CHICAGO, Aug. 4.— lt is estimated
by those in a position to know that
Moore Bros, have lost between four
million and five million five hundred
thousand dollars in the Diamond
Match deal, some say lt has wiped out
every cent of their fortunes. Nothing
In years has caused such a flurry in
commercial circles as the collapse of
the Moores in their efforts to maintain
the control of Diamond Match stock
and New York Biscuit. It has been
the talk of every man connected with
the stock exchange and the board of
trade. Another striking feature of the
failure, and one which In a measure
shows its extent and breadth, is the
fact that the stock exchange for the
first time in its history adjourned in
definitely at once, its doors were opened
without doing a dollars worth of busi
ness. The following notice was posted
on the door of the exchange: The Chi
cago stock exchange has adjourned sub
ject to the action of the governing
At a meeting of the govern
ing committee, a resolution was adopt
ed, calling for the appointment of a
committee of four, the chairman of
which shall be the president of the
stock exchange, and the other three to
be appointed by him to confer with
the bankers of Chicago and Moore
Bros., to arrange upon a basis of set
tlement. The governing committee al
so today adopted the following:
Resolved: That in cases of all stocks
bought and sold "regular" the trades
shall be carried out, and in cases where
the stocks have been bought "regular"
and sold in the account, the stock shall
not be delivered until the opening of
the clearing house.
The banks are taking this Diamond
Match flurry very comfortably. Their
only anxiety seems to be to help cus
tomers. The basis of bank loans for a
long time on the Moore securities has
been very poor.
William H. and J. H. Moore, the
members of the firm of William H. and
J. H. Moore & Purcell, made their first
move as promoters in putting on the
market the stock of the Frazer Axle
Grease Co. The first corporation of
any moment in which they were inter
ested was the Diamond Match Co.
Since the formation of this company
Its success has been phenomenal, and
out of it the Moores have made fortunes
for themselves and for others. O. C.
Barber, the president of the company,
has had control of its actual working,
though the Moores have been recog
nized as the real people behind the
company. Mr. Barber is a practical
match man, and he owned large fac
tories in Akron, Ohio. These factories
were taken in as part of the assets of
the old Connecticut corporation, and
Mr. Barber, who had been the ruling
spirit in the first corporation, became
the working head of the new. The
finances of the company, however, have
always been in the hands of the
Diamond Match stock was not a spec
ulative security in the true sense of
the word during the first two years of
the company's existence.^lt went ahead
making money, and dividends were
paid regularly. At the time of the or
ganization, the capital stock was $6,000
--000. It kept extending its business and
purchasing other match factories, and
as it did so stock was issued at par to
stockholders. The increases in the capi
tal stock were made from time to time,
until the last one in February, 1895,
when the stock was increased from
$10,000,000 to $11,000,000, the present capi
tal. The last million dollars was used
to save lumber which had been burned
in the forest fires in Northern Minne
sota, and this timber was cut and haul
ed to water for preservation. At the
time of the last annual meet
ing, President Barber estimated
the value of this lumber at $1,500,000.
In 1888 the Moores organized the
American Strawboard company, under
the laws of Illinois, to control the man
ufacture of strawboard and wood pulp.
The company acquired some 25 paper
mills, located in eight states, , and for
a time it practically controlled the
entire output of strawboard. The
American strawboard company has a
capital stock of $6,000,000. For the last
two years the Moores have not been
interested to any considerable extent
in this corporation.
The last of the companies organized
by the Moores was the New York
Biscuit company, which was incorpor
ated in 1890. This was a rival concern
to the American Biscuit company, and
bakeries in a number of states were
purchased, and the business of making
bread and crackers actively engaged
in. The capital stock of this company
at the present time is $9,000,000. It
owns bakeries in nine states. The prin
cipal one of these is the Mason bak
ery in Baltimore. The stook of this
company has been an active specula
tive security since its formation.
SUPPORT FOR MARKET.
Aid Promised by Chicago Bankers
CHICAGO, Aug. 4.— The Post says: The
action of closing the stock exchange was
commended on all sides. It was admitted
that lf an attempt had been made to carry
on trading under present circumstances a
panic would surely have followed, In which
all stocks would have suffered materially
and Diamond Match might have been run
down to 150 and New York Biscuit perhaps
to 30 or 40. As lt is, with the co-operation
of the banks and the very rich men who are
interested in the Diamond Match, no great
sacrifice in values Is anticipated. There
is talk among the members of the exchange,
the bankers and the heavy financiers of
formlng an underwriting syndicate to take
the Match stock belonging to the pool at
170. The banks will not be losers. While
they are carrying large amounts of Diamond
Match stock, they have loaned on it only* up
to 160 and 170 a share. On New York Bis
cuit from 75 to 80 a share has been loaned.
The stocks, lt is figured, are intrinsically
worth these amounts, and a powerful organi
zation, most likely, will be perfected to pro
tect values about these figures. The market
will not be supported, but It will be saved
from bear raids.
This syndicate would of course have to take
up some floating stock, but it is argued that
it would not take long to impress Investment
holders with the true value of the shares and
that offerings would cease and the stock
eventually seek a higher plane of quotations.
The real business situation of the Diamond
Match company is not affected by the failure
of the Moores, and the foreign negotiations
are stllll pending.
The following statement of the New York
Biscuit company is given by an official: Since
the company was organized with Judge
Moore at its head, it has always earned from
5 to 6 per cent annually on the capital in
vested. For the last five quarters up to July
last we have failed to declare a dividend, be
cause the money was used in the construction
of two new buildings which represent today
between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000. Both these
buildings are sound assets. When the last
quarter came around we declared a dividend
at the rate of 6 per cent. We do not expect
to pass another dividend.
On good authority it ls stated that New
York banks hold practically no paper of Moore
Bros., the Diamond Match or the Biscuit
company. Moore Bros.' paper, however, ls
largely held in Providence, Boston and New
England generally. The firm was supposed
to be worth about $2,000,000 in 1895.

WEST WELL Ofl
WEEK HAS BEEN, ON THE WHOLE,
Ql I'll. FAVORABLE TO THE
MINNESOTA CROP REPORT
SHOWS HIGH TEMPERATURE, WITH
LACK OF RAIN— INSECTS
DAKOTA HARVEST WILL BE LATE.
In the North State Pi- _..•><•< .* for an
Average Crop Are Xot of the
Observer Beals, in his weekly report
of the climate and crop conditions in
Minnesota, issues the following:
The week has been warm and showery,
and on the whole favorable for all crops
except that more rain is needed over lim
ited areas for corn, potatoes and pastures.
Corn, however, continues making excellent
progress and is earing well. Wheat has de
teriorated somewhat, owing entirely to insect
ravages that are now beginning to show a
decrease. They have been most injurious li
the west central counties and in the south
east corner of the state. In the latter dis
trict army worms and chinch bugs have
caused the most damage, while in the west
central counties it is the Hessian fly, weevil
and a maggot. The wheat and oat harvest
is well advanced, and cutting has begun as
far north as Norman county, while in the
south stacking is under way. But very few
counties report prospects of average wheat
yields, and most of them do not expect much
more than half a crop. Oats are more prom
ising, and it is expected will yield nearly
the usual quantity. Barley yields are con
siderably less than last year, but the qual
ity of the berry is a good deal better. Flax
ls turning brown, and some of the earliest
Is being cut. This crop is quite uneven, but
has greatly improved during the last few
weeks. Army worms injured flax fields in
Winona county, which is a crop they sel
dom touch. Late potatoes must have more
rain to maintain their growth, and their
condition is already becoming spotted, being
best where rains are most frequent. Haying
continues, and a bumper crop is being se
cured. Rye is yielding slightly less than
Professor Otto Lugger, state entomologist,
states that the insects now so damaging in
the west central counties are Frit— flies,
which are related to the Hessian fly, but do
not cause so much damage. He is now
studying and experimenting with this pest,
and later will give out more information
about it. The best known remedy is to
plow immediately after harvesting in order
to plow the insects under.
Holloway, Swift County— A hail storm, ten
miles long and from three to six miles wide,
destroyed two-thirds of the crops of wheat
and oats early Monday morning, Aug. 3.
Kittson County — The weather during the
week has been favorable and the crops are
looking some better. Haying nearly fin
Norman County— Heavy rain during the
past week has helped the potatoes and corn
crops. Wheat and barley ripening very fast.
Wheat very well filled out. Harvest will be
general next week.
Anoka County— The past week has been
dry, but a good rain on the 31st has done
lots of good to corn and late potatoes. Crops
look well. Harvesting nearly finished.
Washington County— The weather this week
has been very fine with a good rain on the
31st. Harvesting well along. Corn looking
Mille Lacs County— First part of the week
sultry and very hot; latter part cooler, with
small shower on 31st. Corn doing nicely.
Potatoes need more* rain. Rye turning out
two-thirds of a crop. Oats and barley will
be heavy, especially in the timber.
Pope County — Very bad storm last Tuesday
which knocked down a good deal of grain.
Wheat, is much damaged by the Hessian
fly. Oats and corn look well.
Douglas County— Harvest just commenced.
Wheat damaged very much by some kind of
a worm. Crops will average from a third to
a half. *
Chippewa County—Harvest Just commenced.
Army worms and Hessian flies have badly
damaged wheat in some localities. Corn, oats
and barley good. Wheat will give an average
yield. Some barley threshed which yielded
45 bushels per acre.
McLeod County— Fine weather during the
week. Oats give evidence of a great crop,
wheat only fair. Corn, if weather continues"
favorable, will yield extremely well. Some
rye has been threshed and turned out well.
Winona County— The showers of the past
week have considerably benefited pastures,
corn, potatoes and blackberries. Harvesting
nearly finished. Potatoes will not be a full
crop. Apples are plenty. Army bugs and
chinch bugs have done some damage to flax
but seem to be gradually disappearing.
Fillmore County — Cutting of grain about all
done, and some hay harvested. Light rain the
31st and night of Aug. 1.
Pipestone County— Small grains nearly all
ripe. Many fields of grain have been badly
damaged by hail. It is reported that the Hes
sian fly is doing considerable damage. Rust
is also doing much injury to wheat and
oats, and they are filling badly.
Redwood County— Light showers badly dis
tributed. Oats and rye harvest nearly over.
Wheat looks green yet and much of It is
breaking down. Some fields have been dam
aged by the Hessian fly. Yields promise to be
Martin County— Good Showers on the 26th
and 31st were of great benefit to corn, which
is earing well. Most ot grain cut. Oats will
yield up to the average.
Conditions Not Favorable for an
Average Crop In North Dakota.
BISMARCK, N. D., Aug. 4.— The
following weekly report has been Issued
from the weather bureau:
Crop are generally about the
same as the previous week, being somewhat
improved where rain fell, but in localities not
receiving rain they are not very promising.
Late-sown wheat has been revived in some
places, but much of the crop is in very poor
condition, and will not head out. Early-sown
grain has about ripened and will soon be har
vested in all sections. In some counties poor
prospects prevail for an average crop and
many fields will fall far below an average.
In sections where rain was more plentiful and
care taken in preparing the ground an aver
age crop will be secured. Much grain is so
ripe that it will soon shell out and active
preparations are being made for harvesting.
In many sections harvest will be late. Some
reporting it as three weeks. Oats, rye, bar
ley and flax are being harvested in scat
tered sections, and a fair crop la being se
cured, especially barley and rye. Potatoes
continue to grow and will be up to the aver
age. Haying not yet finished, but ls being
pushed rapidly. An immense crop assured.

RED WING, Minn., Aug. 4.— A fairly well
dressed man, said to be from Massachusetts,
about forty-five years old, was found dead
this morning under the approach to the high
wagon bridge on the Wisconsin side. He
had fallen thirty feet, having evidently been
robbed and thrown from the bridge. The
man went over from Red Wing at 10 o'clock
last night. He was sober and had some
money. His name is John Blake.
Plan to Bring It About Adopted by
HUTCHINSON. Kan., Aug. 4.-The Demo
cratic state convention was called to order
this morning by Frank Bacon, chairman of
the state committee, who introduced H. S.
Martin, of Marion, as temporary chairman!
Judge A. M. Jackson was named for pei**
manent chairman. At the conclusion of Judge
Jackson's speech, which was a eulogy of the
Democratic party and a plea for the fusion of
all free silver forces in Kansas, no time was
lost. The platform reported unequivocally
indorses the Chicago platform, reasserts the
demand of the Kansas Democracy for ihe
free and unlimited coinage of silver at the
ratio of 16 to 1; lauds Bryan and Sewall as
the champions of the people's Interests end
in conclusion demands a resubmission of ihe
prohibition question to the people of the state.
But it was in the report of the committee
on rules and order of business that all inter
est centered. To this committee had been
delegated, by common consent, the work of
planning a means of effecting a fusion with
the Populists, who meet at Abilene tomorrow.
This committee reported that the convention
should select its presidential electors, though
not formally nominating them, and that a
special committee of five should be named to
wait on the Populists and effect a fusion of
the two parties in Kansas. In a word the
report recommended that the Democrats agree
to surrender everything but the electors to
the Populists and to indorse unequivocally
the state ticket nominated by the Populists
including congressmen at large, in return for
an indorsement by the Populists of the Bryan
and Sewall electors. The convention prac
tically adopted the plan by acclamation.
Reports of Democratic Victory Are
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 4.— Further re
turns received up to tonight from yesterday's
elections in this state confirm the first reports
of a complete Democratic victory with sur
prisingly large gains. The count in the big
counties has been slow, especially in the
cities, but official and estimated returns show
that Johnston has certainly carried forty-five
out of sixty-six counties. Goodwin (Pop.) has
fifteen counties-. Six have not been heard
from or are too close to be figured upon. Of
the last-named Johnston probably has four
and Goodwin two.
It ls believed the complete returns will
show a majority of not less than 45,000 for
Johnston. As compared with the election of
1894, the Democrats have carried fifteen
counties that gave Populist majorities two
years ago. The Democratic majority in
them range from 100 to 1,000 each. As to the
legislature, the Democrats have gained, it is
figured, fourteen members of the house, giv
ing them seventy-eight out of 100. They
have elected eleven out of seventeen senators,
which, with thirteen holdover members, gives
them twenty-four out of thirty-three mem
bers of that body, or about three-fourths of
the entire legislature. The sentiment of the
legislature is silver, which probably means

He May "Win Ont in the Michigan
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Aug. 4.—
Six hundred Michigan Republicans
have sweltered In the hotel corridors
today perfecting plans for their state
convention which is to open at noon
tomorrow. For governor the fight is be
tween Col. A. T. Bliss, of Saginaw, and
Mayor Hazen R. Plngree, of Detroit,
with James O'Donnell, of Jackson;
Congress Aitken, of Flint; A. O.
"Wheeler, of Manistee, and W. F. Con

It is conceded that Bliss and Pingree
lead the others at present and until
tonight their strength was quite evenly
balanced. Since the arrival of the Pin
gree delegation from Detroit this after
noon the mayor is said to have made
some serious breaks in the Bliss lines,
but it ls not claimed that he has gained
enough to secure the prize on the first
ballot In the event of a deadlock be
tween Bliss and Pingree, O'Donnell's
chances are good.

EfIGI(_EER AT FAULT
IMPORTANT TESTIMONY OFFERE
IN THE ATI-Al-TIC CITY DISAS
SIGNALS SET AT DANGER.
SO SAYS THE MAN IN CHARGE
OF THE BLOCK SIGNAL.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Aug. 4.—
The official inquiry by Coroner Mc-
Laughlin to determine the responsi
bility for the collision between the
Reading and Pennsylvania trains was
resumed this morning. The presence
on the witness stand of Operator
Hauser, who displayed the signals
from the crossing tower, and Fireman
Hallihan, who was on the engine that
ploughed through the excursion train,
made the examination the most inter
esting of the series.
Hauser declared emphatically that
he had taken no intoxicating liquors
on the day of the accident. Witness
said he had just gone on duty when
the West Jersey indicator rang. Previ
ous to that he had looked at the sig
nals and all were at danger. He was
sure of this. He saw that tfhe West
Jersey was a little late and then gave
them the right of way. He saw the
board come down. Then he pulled the
distant semaphore. The West Jersey
kept coming. Then he discovered the
Reading rounding the curve. He ex
pected the Reading to slow up to let
the West Jersey over. He saw the
steam of the Raeding go down as is
usual when lt is turned off. The en
gineer of the Reading gave two blasts
of his whistle, but both trains kept
on and the collision followed. He would
be disobeying rules to stop an express
in favor of an excursion train, but he
thought he had not done so in this
case because the West Jersey was so
much nearer the crossing.
Fireman Hallihan stated that he was
in the tender during the approach to
the signal tower and did not see the
signal until the second whistle was
blown. The distant one then indicated
caution and the home signal stop. He
was on the step of the engine when the
crash oame. The engineer put on the
air brakes and to witnesses' mind did
everything possible to stop the train
which was going 45 to 50 -miles an hour
at the distant board. No conversation
passed between him and Engineer Farr
just previous to the collision.
At the afternon session Conductor
P inkerton, of the Reading express, En
gineer Greiner and Fireman Newall, of
the West Jersey excursion train, and
Arthur Stiles, a resident of Atlantic
City, who was riding on his wheel and
saw the collision, testified. Nearly all
these witnesses agreed that Engineer
Edward Farr, of the Reading train,
who was found dead with his hand on
the throttle, had done everything in
his power to stop his train when he
saw that a collision was imminent.
GREAT ICE PLATEAU
Discovered by the Sir Martin Co_
TROMSOE, Norway, Aug. 4.— The
Arctic expedition headed by Sir Martin
Conway and his nephew has accom
plished the first crossing of Spitzbergen
from east to west. In the central por
tion of the islands was found a vast
Ice plateau. Sir Martin Conway's ex
pedition reached Advent bay, Spitzber
gen, from England via Tromsoe on the
steamship Raftsund on June 20. The
members of the expedition were Sir
Martin Conway and his nephew, Tre
vor Battle, Dr. J. W. Gregory, E. J.
Garwood and Mr. Studley, a sports
man. They possessed two Norwegian
ponies and three sledges of the pattern
adopted by Nansen. The explorers pro
posed to split up into two parties. Sir
Martin Conway, Garwood and another
intended to go into the interior while
the three remaining members were to
stay on the coast to geologize and col
lect birds and eggs. Sir Martin Conway
had made arrangements to be taken off
with his companions about Sept. 5, and
it will thus be seen that the expedition
has returned sooner than expected.

25 to 19, inserted a clause in the Irish

Fourteen Hundred Men Are Out In
CHICAGO, Aug. 4.— Fourteen hundred of
the 2,500 empolyes of the South Chicago Ship-
Building company struck this evening, which
will necessitate, it is said, the closing of the
yards. The strike originated with 300 boys
employed to heat rivets, whose wages were
cut from $1.50 to $1.25 a day. The men riv
eters, 1,100 in number, followed their exam
ple. The strike is regarded as too precipitate
an affair to meet with the sanction of even or

dorsed the Republican platform and was ear
nest in his advocacy of the election of Mc-
Kinley and Hobart, but he urged his hearers

significant reminder that he was not yet too
old to serve one or two or three more terms
as United States senator.
