Definite stops Taken i»> the Mill City
At riym<-uf church yesterday afternoon, a
large number of people assented to the plan
for assisting the starving millions of India
in a substantial fashion. It was Rev. Sarnest
Bell, a returned missionary from India, now
secretary of the Chicago Indian Kelief asso

India in its true colors, and made every heart
throb with pity, bringing tears to eyes In re
sponse to the dews of pity that gathered on

NO LARGE BLAfSBS.
Small Boy and Firecracker Haven't
Ilimni to Work.
The fact that yesterday there were but a
few fire alarms, and none of these of any
consequence, was probably due to the heavy
pain of Saturday ni^ht and the fact that a
general observance of the nation's holiday
was postponed until today.
The first alarm was early yesterday morn
ing, when a box car. leased by the Minne
apolis Bedding company, caught fire on the
railroad tracks on Division r .'eet, between
Fifth and Sixth avenues northeast. The car
was loaded with old rags, and was much
damaged. loiter In the day a still alarm was
c:u;m .1 bj the breaking out of the same flre.
At 2('4ti Second avt-nue south yesterday aft
ernoon, a home-made powder of potash,
sulphur and nitrate exploded and scorched a
room in the house. No one was burned.
A shed at 2722 Eighteenth avenue south was
sliphtly scorched by a stubborn gasoline stove,
but there was no loss.

WASHINGTON, July 4.— Senator Welling

One of his constituents is B. H. Warner, a
prominent business man of this city, who
has a country home in Maryland. Mr. War
ner secured from Senator Wellington several
strong letters recommending Mr. Warner's
F.-m to a consulate. To Senator Wellington's
surprise the president appointed young War
ner to be consul at Lelpsic. The senator had
no idea that the young man would be ap
pointed without a personal appeal from him,
and now he is fighting the confirmation In the
senate. There are long-time bona flde resi
dents of Maryland whom Wellington wants
appointed, and he is now trying to prevent
the confirmation of a man whom he recom
mended in writing. He did not realize that
Mr. Warner merely wanted his formal in
dorsement, and that he brought other power
ful Influences to bear to secure the appoint
ment. The Republican senators are laughing
at Senator Wellington, and telling him that

Quite a number have already come In,
Including the grand lodge officers,
whose presence gave impressiveness
to the arrivals, but the greater num
ber comprised traveling representatives
of Eastern and Southern business
houses who have arranged to visit
Minneapolis during the reunion. True,
they were members of the antlered or

Today many of tire strongest dele

will appear as early as 8 and 9
o'clock, upon the arrival of the Chi

be the delegation from Pittsburg,
which represents an important foctor
at all reunions. They left Chicago last
evening for Minneapolis. The dele
gations will be met at all trains ani
escorted by members of t^he local lodge

local Elks waiting to receive members
of the order from outlying districts.
The chief work transacted was the
registering of visitors, who were then
given a badge, and the collection of
delinquent dues of the local members,
who then were also allowed badges.
The work of registration was under the
direct supervision of Chairman Coth

then escorted to carriages awaiting

After partaking of luncheon they im

evening, at Oulie's hotel, the organization
which carried the brunt of the labors m
precting the Ole Bull statue was dissolved.
The banquet was a most meritorious affluir,
well arranged, and the programme arranged
carried out with the same precision that has
characterized the work of the committee.
About seventy-five banqueters sat down to
the tables and partook of the food well spkvd
with Norwegian flavors. The first toast of the
evening was pronounced by Bernt Loftj.?ld,
chairman of the committee on arrangements.
His t?ast was "Norway." He mentioned the
propriety of dissolving the committee, whose
work had been realized May 17, Norway's
Independence day, on the Independence day of

The principal addresv? of the evening was
responded to by Carl Hanson, ex-president of
the singing society. His toast was "Aretan

who had concocted the ideas whereby the
work of the committee was carried out to
a successful ip.sue. Mr. Hanson presented Mr".

NEW YORK, July 14.— The Louvre, a
dry goods, millinery and house-fur
nishiing goods emporium at Nos. 2734
and 2736 Third avenue, which was
about to be opened by Henry Rosenthal
and Isaac Weil, was destroyed by flre
today. The loss will exceed $100,000
The structure, which was built of
brick, was two stories high and had
an iron front. The flre was first dis
covered in the top floor, but before
the engines arrived in response to the
alarm the entire structure was ablaze.
At the time of the outbreak of the
flames services were being held in
the Reformed church close by.
The pastor, fearing a panic, gave out
a hymn and then dismissed the con
gregation. While endeavoring to put
out the flames a man named C. H.
Hawthorne had his hands badly
burned, and a fireman named Jacob
Hock was overcome by the heat. Th*
flre spread to the dry goods store of
Isaac Sinder, next door, and the in
terior of the cottage of George S. Hen
shaw, on One Hundred and Forty-filth
street, was destroyed. The losses are
estimated as follows: Isaac Sinder,
$30,000; Weil & Rosenthal, on stock
$70,000, on building $10,000; Henshavv,
A short time before the flre broke out
Henry RosentJhal and a man named
Leo Kauffman were seen In the Louvre.
Rosenthal explained to the police that
he had visited the establishment for
the purpose of making out a list of
employes and arranging business de
tails In connection with the opening,
which had been set for July 6.
AKRON, 0., July 4.— The shafting
department of the Akron Iron and
Steel company's works was complete
ly destroyed by flre today. Loss, $100,
--000; fully covered by insurance. The
building was 300 feet long and two
stories high. It was equipped with
much valuable machinery, which, to
gether with a large amount of finished
steel and iron, was destroyed. The
fire was caused by the intense heat.

nolds, of Calhoun county, is passing
his life in the insane asylum at Cla
rinda. The old foolish ghost scare was
the jest practiced on him. In the pres
ence of a. number of friends he ex
pressed his disbelief one night in the
manifestations of spiritualism, and
was promptly challenged to visit a
bridge near by on which it was said
the ghost of a farmer recently killed
there still walked. Reynolds started
off, and on his arrival was met by a
sheeted figure — one of his companions,
who had preceded him to the spot
by a short cut — and frightened into
unconsciousness. Brain fever ensued,
and when he was able to leave his bed
his mind was found to be hopelessly
shattered. After a year In the asylum
he was discharged as cured, but soon
showed symptoms of returning mental
derangement, and was returned to
Clarinda. Nearly two years afterward
he was again discharged. He had been
out only a short time when he chanced
to pass by the same bridge, and in
stantly went raving mad for a third
time. The Calhoun county lunacy
board has just ordered him returned
to the asylum.

Wt'Nt Not SorloiiHl* Af
COLUMBUS, 0., July 4.— Telegrams
received by President Ratchford, of the
United Mine Workers, today Indicate
that the order for a general strike of
the miners has been complied with
generally throughout the mining dis
tricts of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and
Western Pennsylvania and in sections
of West Virginia and Kentucky. It
will take several days, however, to
determine with any degree of accu
rateness the number of men involved.
President Ratchford roughly estimates
thie number at 200,000, but this is re
garded as very liberal. He is pleased
with the unanimity shown by tho
miners and says that he has the great
est confidence in the successful out
come of the strike. He thinks the
prospects are better than In 1894 when
a general strike was inaugu
rated. At that time the scale
of prices was being paid in
many mining localities, notably West
Virginia, where a majority of the min
ers continued at work, and thereby
greatly weakened the strike. He has
hopes that the West Virginia rwiners
may now be brought Into line, inas
much as they are receiving wages far
below the scale and their condition
is not any better than that of the
miners in other states. The coal pro
duction of West Virginia has increased
so rapidly in the last few years that
the output of that state now exceeds
the output of Ohio. During the strike
of 1894 trouble was caused by the ship
ment of West Virginia coal through
Ohio, the Ohio miners endeavoring to
stop this traffic. The railroad compa
nies promptly applied to the state for
protection, and almost the entire Ohio
national guard was placed in the
field. President Ratchford does not
believe there will be any repetition
of these troubles in the present strike.
Special efforts are to be made to enlist
the sympathy of the West Virginia
miners. President Ratchford is en
couraged to believe that this may be
accomplished by the fact that the min
ers have signified their intention to
strike in many places where efforts
to enlist their co-operation have failei
on previous occasions.
President Ratchford has received tel
egrams from a number of Pittsburg
operators asking permission to operate
their mines at scale prices. These re
quests are all emphatically refused, a3
it would work an injustice not only
to other operators, but their miners
As to the probable duration of the
strike, President Ratchford says that
will be governed entirely by' 'circum
stances. It will last several weeks
at least. The minters are in a better
position to withstand a long strike at
this time, as a great many of them
have garden products on which to sub
sist, and there will be no great hard
ships entailed such as would follow a
strike in the winter. The fact that
there is a fair supply of coal in stock
and the demand for domestic consump
tion is small, will have a tendency to
prolong the suspension. The contracts
for coal for lake shipment will create
the greatest trouble. The bulk of these
contracts are held by Pittsburg opera
tors, bu<t the Ohio operators also have
a fair share. The Ohio operators have
not yet held a conference to consider
the matter, but are considerably wor
ried. While they say the strike is ill
timed and likely to fizzle out, they will
close down their mines for a short
time, at least until they can determine
how general the suspension is. A par
tial suspension only In the Pittsburg
district would be ruinous to their bus
iness, should the Ohio miners refuse
STIUKE IS 091 TODAY.
Hneh Depends I'pon the Action of
PITTSBURG, Pa., Juiy 4.— The coal
miners' strike will be on tomorrow.
The success of the struggle for higher
wages in five states depends on the
miners In the Pittsburg district. If
they fail to refrain from working the
movement will be a failure. Fully 100
mines were represented at the miners'
convention on Saturday by seventy
five delegates. This is a larger at
tendance than at any convention
since the great strike of 1894.
One of the significant points about
the convention Saturday, was the fact
that no representatives were present
from the mines where ironclad con
tracts and signed agreements exi^t.
These mines include the first pool o-f
P. L. Robbins & Co., Borland mine of
the Panhandle Coal ; company
Snowden and Gastonville mines of the
Pittsburg & Chicago coal company and
the Oak Hill, Plum Creek and Sandy
Creek mines of the New York and
Cleveland Gas company. These em
ploy about 3.000 men, and the indica
tions are that if the men at one of
these minrs refuse to quit all the dig
gers at the others will act accordingly.
A strong effort is being made to get
the cooperation of the river miners in
the coming fight. If they work they cut
quite a figure in supplying coal, as the
fuel for local points can all be sup
plyed by water routes. Operators a.re
making no efforts to conciliate the
miners. Not an operator can be found
who will say that the miners are en
titled to whait they demand, 69 cents
a ton. No effort will be made to op
erate the mines unless it should be
the river mines, hence no trouble is
Great apprehension is felt ac to what
course the vast number <>f foreigners
will take in the strike. They do not
conform to the customs of the Ameri
can-speaking miners and the latter
have very little influence over them.
One of the points made by the opera
torse is that more mining companies
have gone into the hands of the sher
iff this year then during any year ;n
the history of the trade. ■
The officials of the United Mine
Workers, of the Pittsburg district,
held a meeting today, and heard re
ports from various parts o-f the dis
trict. Each of these indicated that
the men would quit work. The ques
tion of securing sustenance for the
vast army of idle men is the most se
rious one confronting the officials.
The organization has no money in
its treasury. The miners have been
untable to save anything and only
those who have little garden patches
will be able to live independently dur
ing the cessation of work.
The exodus from the fourth pool to
West Virginia has begun. The West
Virginia operators ' are hiring miners
as fast as they apply for work. Those
who wish immunity from trouble seek

Special to the Globe.
NEW YORK, July 4.— ln his weekly
review of the financial situation Henry
The past week in the market for securities
hag exhibited, on the whole, a reactionary
movement in prices. After a steady upward
drift, extending over some six weeks and
showing a handsome range of profits, this is
no more than might he expected, and, for
various reasons, it portends advantage for
the future course of the market.
Strong as the tone of values has been and
still is, yet the market has lacked breadth
and activity, the daily transactions having
averaged only about 250,000 shares. As indi
cated in our advices of last week, this is in
a considerable measure due to a rush of
''outside" buying having run away with the
market and carried up prices, while the
class of large local operators have been left
in the lurch and have refused to come in at
the higher range of values. In the same way
London, which is raising Its estimate of our
securities, has been left in the cold by the
late rise and hesitates to come 1n until pur
chases can be made at some concession.
The houses who have it in their power to
largely regulate the course of business on
the exchange have not liked this situation.
A position which keeps out of the market the
class of operators who possess the spirit, the
means, the tactical skill and the alliances
with large capitalistic forces, is clearly not
one to make the best of such recuperative
influences as are now coming into active
operation in Wall street. When these oper
ators stand still, the market soon stagnates
and the best influences may come and go
without conferring any benefit.
The present position of this influential class
of operators appears to be about this: They
are fully awake to the fact that a great re
covery has come over the business of the
country and that all the influences affecting
the value of investments are conspiring to
produce a very important revival of busi
ness on the stock exchange. They construe
the active investment demand for bonds and
dividend-paying stocks as the signs of a
coming boom, and they are therefore ready to
take their rart in the coming revival. But
they have comparatively few stocks, and it
therefore suits their tactics at the moment to
discourage the rising tendency in prices and
leave the narrow outside market to the fate
that must overtake it in the absence of their
influential support. As already intimated,
London appears to be in the same position
and disposed to follow a like waiting policy.
What concession in prices it may take to
satisfy these important would-be buyers it
is not easy to say. Probably some might be
willing to supply their wants at near cur
rent prices, but that might not be easily done,
for important purerases would undoubtedly
start up prices again. Much must depend
upon the course of events. There is no say
ing what may be the effect of the completion
of the tariff in starting up industrial activity
in the many quarters in which production is
now being held in suspense, it is also to
be considered that the crops are In a position
which permits of fine weather giving them
an impetus beyond what Is no-w calculated
upon. In any event, there is every prob
ability of business prospects exhibiting a
marked improvement from this time forward.
This situation may at least be expected to
keep the market strong for some time to
come— during which these Intending buyers
may gradually get some slocks— but it does
not seem likely that it will permit any ap
pre<iable fall in prices: the great business
factors of the hour are too decidedly bullish
to admit of that— except in the event of som?
unforeseen adverse circumstance; which is
about the only chance these belated buyers
have left to count upon.
Upon this series of uncertainties depends
the course of the svtock market during the
summer months. A re-ally stagnant market
seems improbable. There are too many good
possibilities within sight for that to happen.
All are reckoning upon it as a time for get
ting into the market. Few regard the rise
of the past month a-s hem« sufficient to dis
count the hopeful future that now face? the
country. Operators, therefore, are likely to
keep their accounts open with the commission
houses, and stand ready to buy if circum
stances shoti'.d favnr. That may not neces
sarily mean a really ac.ive summer market
but It does mean at least a steady and safe
one, and s:rongly r.i^k BtS a t'oom in the (arlv
fall. " i
The general biuiness outlook prows increas- :
ingly hopeful. Many manufacturers are al
ready sufficiently eat'sfled with the probable
details of the new tariff tn begin operations
upon an extended scale, and in the larger in
dustries the resumption of full work is be
coming comparatively genera. In city mer
cantile circles also a marked improvement of
tone begins to appear. It comes too late ;o
materially increase the volume of the sum
nier business, but it is having a wholesome
effect upon the confidence and expectations,
of distributors in respec! to ihe fall trad*.
The reports and orders sent by commercial
travelers show such an improvement that
they ate receiving instructions to prolong
their stay in the interior; al' <>f which goes
to strengthen mercantile expectations as to
the volume of trade during the s?cond half
of the year. Chiming with this improvement
comes the generally hopeful character of the
government crop reports, which are even ex
ceeded by the sangu'.ne tenor of the advices !
from railroad officials and men of business
on tours of Inspection in the West and South.
Men of business are turning their attention ;
from the st'll fretful agitation of politics, in '
the conviction that two years remain to them '
before there can be any absorption of public I
attention by factional agitators, and with the ',
hope that durlug that interval public opinion |
will frown down violent issues and support i
only safe and wholesome policies. The re- j
vival of business will powerfully contribute
towards that tendency.
During the week there has been a marked
movement toward?, ease in the foreign ex
changes. The large remittances required for
cash settlements for anticipatory importations
of sugar, wool. h!de6. etc.. nnd for the pay
ment of July interest on our securities held
abroad, as well as on account of travelers' !
credits, are now about over, and rates for |
foreign bil'.p. have consequently fallen below I
the gold export point, so that no shipments
of the metal have been made during the week.
This has had an encouraging effect upon Wall
street; for. although, with our present stocks I
of gold, we could afford to part with more if j
necessary, yet we are likely to need a good
stock of money in the banks, as the proba
bilities point to important transfer?, of cur
rency to the interior after this month. In con
nection with a liberal crop movement at rel
atively good prices. In view of the prospective
introduction of measures of currency re
form into congress, it may be of no small
importance to their success that we should
have ample stocks of gold in the banks and In
♦J»« treasury; thus whatever tends to augment
our supply of the yellow metal must help to
the confirmation of public confidence. Euro
pean advices report an expectation of kol<l
being soon exported to the United States,
which appears to be warranted by the gen
eral facts of our international business rela
X KAYS TO FIND TEETH.
Cblcaffo Dentist Puts the New Light
to Xfw Ise.
For the much-experimented-upon X
iay another new use has been discov
ered. A Chicago dentist has enlteted
its help in discovering the position of a
tooth, and has made a glowing succeed
at the method. From now on the
Roentgen process takes its place in
the science of dentistry.
Dr. A. M. Markle, in the Columbus
Memorial building, is the originator of
this novel application of the X ray.
The idea came to him as a solution of
one of the hardest problems in
straightening teeth which he has en
countered in a long time. In this new
field, as in surgery, however, the new
photography was found more than
equal to the demands made upon it,
and the greatest success has so far at
tended the operation.
There was one front tooth missing in
the upper jaw of the problem which
brought out the X ray. The vacancy
was not caused by accident or neglect,
but was due to the fact that the tenth.
was in hiding somewhere in the (rum,
but the dentist was not certain of it-*
true position. Hence the Roentgen ray.
It was a difficult job to take a
shadow picture of the upper jaw of a
man so as to show the teeth. Two
ways presented themselves. One was
to put the Orookea tube in the mouth
and the sensitive plate outside and the
other to put the plate in the mouth
and the source of the rays outside. Ow
ing to the comparative eizes of the
tubo and the man's mouth the latter
method was chosen.
A piece of bromide paper, extremely
sensitive to light, was first cut in a
dark room to a size which would
just fit into the roof of the patient's
mouth. Then it was wrapped in
opaque paper and brought out to the
Crookes tube. When all the arrange
ments were made the piece of paper
was pressed into the top of the pa
tient's mouth, the tube placed just be
side the nose, and the current turned,
After a three-minute exposure in this
constrained position the piece of paper
was removed and developed In the usual
way. The result was the first working
shadow picture of a man's teeth.
The Roentgen photograph showed
plainly and unmistakably the position
of the tooth sought for. It lay close
beside the roots and inside of the other
front teeth, and was evidently Just
waiting for an opportunity to descent!
into the light of day. This chance l>r.
Markle immediately furnished it. Cut
ting a so.ua c of the gum away lit- f< un 1
the point of the tooth in the exact po
sition shown by the shadow photo
graph. A small hole was drilled into
the tooth and a little gold screw in
serted. Then a block and tackle in
the shape of silk ligatures and a set of
steel springs was attached and the res»t
left to time. Since then the tooth has
gradually appeared, until now It is
rapidly coming down into the vacant
But the most astonishing part of the
performance is yet to come. When the
tooth appea.red in the light of day it
was found that it was a double toorh,
or molar, of the kind commonly be
lieved to inhabit the back of people's
jaws and never to grow in front. The
dentists say, however, that such teeth
are sometimes found in front, being
in the nature of freaks.
When this tooth is well down so that
it can be easily handled it will be ex
tracted. Then the X ray will be used
for the second time to find the still
missing front tooth of the ordinary
type, which is undoubtedly Bomewhi r«
in the gum, waiting for a Moses to
lead it out into its proper position.
When this is accomplished the set will
be complete and the science of dentis
try enriched by the successful opera
tion of a new method of finding hidden
