A BLOW AT CANADA.
The President Issues a Retal
TOLLS AT THE FALLS OF ST. MARY.
Itie Dominion Given Notice That Uncle
Sam Will Not Submit to Unjnst Dis
crimination and Violation of Treaty
Prov Uiona The "Soo" Can al No Longer
Free After Sept. 1 Unless the Wetland
Is Likewise Strange Lack of Courtesy
to the British Legation Canadian
Washington-. Auk. 23. Equality of
tolls in tbe Welland caual was one of the
aisliuct pledges made by article 27 of the
treaty of Washington of 1SJ1, but Canada
has not kept her pledge so made, and,
Saturday, late in the evening, the presi
dent ac:ed upon the authority granted by
the act of congress of July 26, 1842, and
issued a proclamation putting retaliatory
tolls upon Canadian traffic through St.
St. Mary's Falls canal. This was not
done without careful advisement. It is
stated that the question of how to hit
Canada the hardest was thoroughly dis-
Consulted with Ituslness Men.
Defeated consultations were had with
leading business men of our Canadian
frontier, who were called into consulta
tion by the Mate department from north
ern New York and other parts of the
country so quietly that the fact of their
presence here on this business is only now
made known alter their departure and the
completion of the . t. It is said in ad
ministrative circles that the ground was
so carefully gone over beforehand that
Can ad. is not left a leg to fctand on and
mu-t give in to the American demands
and immediately revoke the order in
council of April 4. last, authorizing the
discriminating rebate of 18 cents a ton on
grain products shipped to Canadian ports
and refused to all American merchandise.
The President's Proclamation.
President Harrison's proclamation re
cites the act "to enforce reciprocal com
mercial relations between the United
States and Canada," which authorizes his
proclamation, and then proceeds to stte
the controversy as follows: "Whereas, The
government of the Dominion of Canada
impones a toll amounting to about 20 cents
per ton on all f reight passing through the
Welland canal in transit to a port of tl.e
United States, and also a further toll on
all vessels of the United States and on all
passengers on transit to a port of tje
United States, all of which tolls are with
out rebate; aud,
A Rebate Against Uucle Sum.
"Whereas, The government of tLe
Dominion of Canada, in accordance wil'u
an order in council of April 4, refunds 18
cents per ton of the 20-cerit toll at the
Welland canal on wheat, Indian corn,
peas, barley, rye, oats, flaxseed and buck
wheat, upon condition that they are origi
nal ly shipped for and carried to Montreal
or some port east of Montreal for export,
and that, if trans-shipped at intermediate
points, such trans-shipment is made with
in the Dominion of Canada, but allows
no such nor any ot her rebate on such pro
ducts when shipied to a port of the
UniUtU States or when carried to. Montreal
for export if trans-shipped within the
United States: and.
An Unjnst Discrimination.
WhereaF. The government of the Do
minion of Canada, by said system of re
bate and otherwise, discriminates against
the citizens of the United States in the use
of said Wellnud canal in violation of the
provisions of article 27 of the treaty of
Washington, concluded May 8, 1&71; and
"Whereas, Said Welland cvnal is con
nected with the navigation of the great
lakes, and I am satisfied that the passage
through it of cargoes in transit to ports of
the United states is maue nmicuii ana
"burdensome by said discriminating sys
tem of rebate and otherwise, and is recip
rocally unjust and unreasonable;
And Here's the Remedy.
"Now, therefore, I, Benjamin Harrison,
president of the United States'jof America
by virtue of the power to that end con
f erred upon me by said net of congress, ap
proved July 26, 1S92, do berebyxlirect that
from and after Sept. 1, 1892, until furthi-r
notice, a toll of 20 cents per ton be levied,
collected, and paid on all freight of what
ever kind or description passing through
the St. Mary's Falls canal in transit to any
port of the Dominion of Canada, whether
carried in vessels of the United States or
of other nations, and to that extent I do
hereby suspend from and after said date
the right of free passage through said St.
Mary's Falls canal of any and all cargoes
or portions of cargoes in transit to Cana
dian ports. In testimon whereof, etc..
"By the president:
John W. Foster, Secretary of State..
DISCOURTEOUS TO BY JOHN BULL.
Canada's Conduct Humiliates the British
A fact con nected with the negotiations
'Which preceded the issuance of the above
proclamation and which is much com
mented on here is the humiliating posi
tion in which Governor General Lord
Stanley mid the Canadian ministers have
placed the British legation at Washing
ton. Herbert, the British charge d'af
faires, twice asked of the United States
Kovernmenl an extension of tint, stating
that he did so at the request or tne Cana
dian authorities, and, ou the last occasion,
Aug. 6, holding out ou the same authority
a promise of some satisfactory action.
Yet the first news of the decision of the
Canatlittu government to continue the ob
noxious rebate uutil the end of the navi
gation season, that is until a period when
retaliation would be harmless, came to
.ha state department, not from the j
British legation, which had been led to
promise early and satisfactory informa
tion, but from the United States consul
generul at Ortawa.
Lett Him In the Dark.
When Heilier; journeyed post haste
from Newport to Washington Saturday,
and was asked by Secretary Foster wheth
er the information conveyed by the United
States consul general was true, he was
obliged to confess that the Cauadian gov
ernment had left him absolutely in the
dark; that he hod no official communica
tion to make, although he did not ques
tion the truth of the consul general's dis
patch. It is surmised that Gladstone's
government aud the new colonial secre
tary will not let this apparent gross cis
courtey on the part of the Canadian povr
ers to the British representatives pass
without a fitting rebuke.
"While the Lamp HoltW Out to Burn."
When the charge d'affaires admitted
that he had no flici;tl communication to
make Secretary Foster said tuat uuder the
circumstances the president considered it
his duty to issue the proclamation con
templated by the act of congress. But he
gave Herbert the assurance that should
the Canadian government give notice of
its decision to alclish the discrimination
now complained of tte proclamation
would be suspended concurrently with
How It Strikes Canada.
OTTAWA, Ont. Aug. 22. President Har
rison's proclamation against Canada is
the sole topic of conversation here. The
move was entirely unexpected and will
likely necessitate the early meeting of the
cabinet. Will Canada back down? This
is the question everybody is asking at the
hotels, on the streets and at the clubs.
Although no official opinion can be
learned owing to the absence of the
various ministers from the city there is a
general impression that the Dominion Gov
ernment, having taken action by declining
to abolish the rebate of canal tolls until
the end of the season, will not humiliate
Itself by a complete back down. Un
successful in the reciprocity negotiations
at Washington, it will be unwilling to
adopt any course which, while repugnant
to the people, wou.d assist the Republi
cans in the presidential campaign. Work
on the new Canadian canal at the "Soo"
will be pushed forward day and night,
but a year will elapse in any event before
it can I e completed.

Chicago, Aug. 22. The Chicago base

taken a strategic position in tenth place,
which is a little lawer than ever. How

After an address lasting fifteen minutes

Wichita, Kan., Aug. 22. The St. Louis
and San Francisco eaitbound passenger
train which left here at 10:30 o'clock Sat
urday night was robbed by four masked
men two miles west of Augusta, in Butler
county, about midnight. The robbers
were four farmers Fred Livingston, Ezra
Carter, A. A. Bailey, and Rollin Moffat.
The amount they secured is placed by the
officials at 5,000. All four are now in jail
at Dougjass, having been captured soon
after the commission of the crime.
Acted Like Professionals.
As the train slowed up at the Santa Fe
crossing about a mile east of Augusta two
masked men mounted the locomotive
from either side and covering the engineer
and fireman with guns ordered them to
stop tbe train. When the train came to a
standstill two other members of the
gang, who were on the train, started to
uncouple the express car and as soon as
this was done the engiueer was forced to
pull out with the car about a mile distant
from the rest of the train.
Perforated the Express. Car.
While two of the robbers watched the
crew of the locomotive the others went to
the express car door, demanded admit
tance, and commenced shooting through
the sides of the car in which were Express
Messenger Ship and a baggageman. The
imprisoned men soon gave iu. Ship was
forced to opeu hU safe and the robbers
ransacked everything. The robbers then
ordered the engineer to go ahead.

And right here the conductor made a
mistake that would have resulted in the
robbers getting away if they had been
sharp. II ewent on to Beaumont, twenty-six
miles away, instead of backing to Augusta,
only a short distance, before he reported
the robbery. The robbery was committed
by four farmers living in the vicinity of
Douglas, Butier county, aud it seems was
W as Good as His Name.
Sheriff Xlpp, of Cowley county, was in
formed that such a scheme was on foot by
a fifth member of the gang early in the
week and while he could not discover ex
actly when the robbery was to take place
he had a posse in waiting and as soon as
he got wind of the hold-up he pounced on
tbe outlaws. The robbers made one big
mistake. They held up the wrong train.
If they had taken the west-bound tram
they would have gotten a whole lot more
