WISCONSIN LABOR FEDERATION. !
Hot Contest Expected nt Election
of O flic or* Today.
WEST SUPERIOR, WI«., July 10.-
Practically a l of the business of the la
bor convention of the state today was I
put over until tomorrow, and the dele
gates gave themselves up to pleasure al- I
most wholly and rode around the bay
and lake as the guests of the local labor
unions.' The election of officers takes
place tomorrow and there will be a
Bttong contest. The southern part of the
state is said to want everything and '
Superior and the cities nearer here have I
combined against Milwaukee and h.-:r
friends. There is also a great question
as to whether Milwaukee can secure the
convention for next year. It is consider
ed possible that It will go to La Cross*
or Eau Claire, whichever on* secures the
EOlld support of the northern and cen
tral part of the state.

THE TURK PAYS UP
NINETY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS
HANDED OVEIR TO MINISTER
FOR CLAIMS OF AMERICANS
Amount la Accepted by the Wash
lnKton Government in Sottlemeut
of DamtiK't'M Suffered by Amer
ican* in Armenia.
WASHINGTON, July 10.—The state de
partment has received the amount of the
American indemnity claim against Tur
key, $55,000, through the American lega
tion at Constantinople.
The money was paid by the Turkl-h
government to Mr. Leis-hman, our min
ister at Constantinople; was by him
placed in the Ottoman Imperial bank and
drafts remltte.l for the amount. These
drafts have just reached Washings n.
Ah is always the case, the claims In
the aggr&gate considerately ■exceed the
amount of the indemnity actua'ly pad,
but out 'government has expressed Itself
satisfied with the payment. It assumes
full responsibility for the distribution,
the Turkish government paying down a
lump sum of ?<is>,ooo and leaving it to the
state department to distr.bute this
among the claimants at its discretion
and after its own fashion. It is stated
that us soon as the department officials
can prepare their list they will commu
nicate with the claimants.
These claims are principally based upon
losses suffered by American missionarii s
and educational institutions in Armenia,
notably those at Harpoot and Maraah,
but there are a number of individual
claims such, for instance, a.s that of the
family of the unfortunate bicyclist,
Lens, the Pittsburg man who was ki.kd
by Turkish soldiers while at temping to
go around the globe on his wheel.
The state department officials feel the
greatest satisfaction at the settlement
of these claims. Secretary Kay had
been told by diplomats skilled in the
ways of Oriental diplomacy and expe
rienced in the political conditions of
Southern Europe, that he ne\er would be
able to collect them.
HAjRD BILiLi TO COLLECT.
Not only was there extreme difficulty
in bringing- any pressure to bear because
Of the remoteness of Turkey, but we
had to contend wjith the jealousy of t'ae
great European powers, most of whom
had claims apainst Turkey vastly larger
in amount than ours and whose total
was beyond the abilky of the Turkish
government to meet. For more than a
decade the American claims have been
pending. Minister Terrell initiated them;
Dr. Angell went over to collect them, ex
pecting to be so engaged only a short
time, tout he returned unsuccessful after
several years in Constantinople. Then
Minister Straus took them up, and when
ho resigned he passed them along to
young Mr. Grisrom. The latter only
recently committed his heavy charge to
Mr. Leishman, and while to the latter
minister belongs the credit of actually
collecting the money, it is said at the
state department that each and every
one of the officers has contributed valu
able services toward the final settlement.
Meanwhile the state department natural
ly feels gratified not only over the re
ceipt of the money, but for the larger
reason that the Turkish government has
in making the payment, given a most
signal manifestation of the regard it en
tertains for the United States and thus
has re-established effectually the very
best relations between the two countries.
THE RUSSIAN EMBROGLIO.
With the reply of Secretary Gage,
pointing out the impossibility of accept
ing- Russia's proposition on the tariff
controversy pending a decision by the
court, it is expected there will be no
further active negotiations on this ques
tion until the United States court ren
ders it decision in November, and Rus
sian officials in Washington who have
deferred their departure pending negotia
tions, left today for Narragansett, where
the ambassy will be established for the
summer months, M. de Wollant being in
charge. • "
Mr. Gage's answer has been trans
mitted to St. Petersburg.

This follows as a djT< ■<, result of the

found in the books after his twelve

Mr. Hinsey, the central ;>gtire in all

not satisfy h!g judges. Congressman
James E. Watson, of Indiana, moved
th it Mr. llin.sey .should be ordered to ap
pear and show cause why he should not
be expelled from t'ne supreme lodge.
■Mr. Hinsey hud tried to forestall thi.s
action by sending in his 'resignation
a» a mein/ber of the board of oon
trol of the endowment rank.
This resignation was laid on the table.
Then the "debate on the rule to expel be
gan. There was no one to defend Mr.
Hinsey tout himself. All wanted his ex
pulsion apparently, but maniy delegates
argued that the supreme lodge could not
expel a member without a trial In the
constituted courts of the order. It took
until late tonight to decide this point.

OHIOAGO, July 10.-Not since the es
tablishment of the weather bureau r.-is
'this city experienced such terrific heat
as affected it today. One hundred and
two in the shade in the office of the
weather bureau was the high recoid, tb«
highest previous mark being July 16
1887, when it reached 19.8. One hundred
and two in the &:hade was, however the
easiest part of the day. The wind bV\v
with force from the west and southwest
and a hotter, more stifling air waa never
felt in this city before. It seemed to add
twf nity degrees to the misery-caus ng
power of the heat. So hot did it become
during the afternoon as the wind drove
hot air into the windows rind doorwava
that all through the business section ten
ants of offices Bkunnmed down thieh- win
dows to keep out the air. At the thea
ters where matinees were in progress
men were stationed ait the front doors
to keep them closed as much as possi
ble. If any comfort was to be found :t
was by shutting out the breeze. Down
on the street level in the shade the mer
cury was but little above that In '
Auditorium tower, but in t:he sun and
street crossings it. was anywhere from K5
to 110. The air was :~o dry, however,
that its effects were not so disastrous
as would have bc-en the case If greater
humidity had prevailed. Tonight the
wind changed to the northward, blowing
off Lake Michigan, with the result that
the mercury went down twenty degrees
within an hour.

TOPEKA, Kan., July 10.-Kansas is
just as hot as yesterday and many de
grees drier. The temperatures through
out the state today ranged from 100 to 10S.
On account of the dryness of the at
mosphere few prostrations were re

Corn hfus been seriously damaged,
though there is yet some hope for the
late (product. Early corn will not yield
anything. Late corn shrivels up during
the day, but at night unfolds again. The
farmers are cultivating it wll and the
we< is are entirely missins. If rain comes
within the present week Kansas will yet
have a good crop of late corn.
. The splendid fruit prospects of early
shippers are entirely blighted. Berries
and small fruit are a total loss. Ap
ples, peach and pear trees, laden with
half-grown fruit, are shriveling up and
drying In the lierce heat.
> There is widespread depression through
out the state because of the drouth,
Which is the worst experienced here. But
Kansas farmers are better prepared to
endure the consequences of a drouth now
than for many years past. The wheat
crop was never better and most of the
farmers are out of debt.

CHICAGO, July 10.-Followers of John
Alexander Dowie made another attempt
to convert the citizens of Evanston to
night and railed as on former oceaslonx
They visited the place in greater force
than ever before, there being fully 200
of them, but their increased numbers
only brought them a greater defeat.
One half of the Dowieites were follow
ers of "Zlon" and the remainder were
members of the paid bodyguard which
Dowie maintains. The guards were in
| tended to prevent any interference with
the meeting and when it commenced
they formed around t\io Dowieltes proptr
to hold back the crowd of fully 1,500 peo
j pie which gathered rapidly as soon an
it was known that another Dowie meet
ing was in progress. As on former oc
casions, eggs and vegetables were soeea
.ily prominent In the proceedings and
Dowie guards and those whom they
were trying t<> protect were soon spat
tered witji yolks and battered with old
vegetables. Several fights resulted tx
tween the guards and people of (he town
generally with damaging results to the
guards. The entire police Force of
Evanston was called Into servic
after the chief of police had ordered the
Dowieltes to withdraw an.l h;:.i met
with a refusal, be ordered Ms nun to
! charge them. The police did tint use
their clubs and the guards held them
: back by sheer weight and force ot num
The crowd meanwhile was growing
ugly and Mao "" Bates, ol Evanston, k<t
in« that unless sum. thing was done
quickly, people would be seriously hurt
and possibly km. d, ordered out a lire
engine. The steamer at once turned a
four-inch stream on the Dowieites and
they went over like t< n pins. Women
as well as m< n were thrown down by
the stream and Bent rolling in the mud.
The people of Evanston danced and
hooted with delight as the firemen stead
ily advanced, driving the Dowieites be
fore them in niter- rout. Tlv work wi;h
clone with impartiality and w
Dowieite was dilatory In movement was
washed along by the four-Inch stream.
As vlic Dowieites Bed the dry method
of ECttack came once more into favor
and the bombardment of eggs and vege
i. bles was resumed a*nd aided materially
tlu- purging of the town from the
ence of the Dowieites. Elder Piper, or
Dowie's church, who had been In com
mand Of thr> small army, was an
on a charge of disorderly conduct.
While he van brine; led to the Btatlon
men and boys armed with syringes con
taining dirty water and other liquids
more objectionable, made him an object
of especial attention and he was In a
sorry condition win n the station doors
closed behind him.
Aiio'.a twenty other Dowleites wire
taken Into custody, more to save them
from the crowd in the streets than tor
any other reason.
The Dowleltos say they will return In
greater force and the people of Evana

next riot Just ao much the larger.
