Chicago, Jane 29. An accident attend

and fansiderable damage to anatomy, but
luckily without fatality, occurred at the
World's fair grounds. About 900 men em

A nunilier of men when the accident oc

alighted on the soft soil, escaping unin

the same building were witnesses of the
ceremonies from a door leading to an ad
joining room on the same Hoor. When
the accident occurred it created a small
panic Many rushed for the doors and
windows and it was with difficulty that
they were prevailed upon to remain quiet,
as the danger was over. Mr. Millet and Mr.
Allen escaped unhurt although the latter
went to the floor below with his workmen.
Mr. Millet was examining his present and
JUDGMENT ON GRAIN EXHIBITS.
A Description of How It Will Be
Hon. Jeremiah Rusk, ex-secretary of ag
riculture; Colonel Edward Willetts, of the
Government building; Chief Buchanan, of
agriculture, and John Boyd Thatcher,
chairman of the executive committee on
awards, met in the latter's office for the
purpose of devising the best methods of,
carrying out the examinations of cereals,
vegetable fiber, wool, etc. It was resolved
that Hon. John Sterling Morton, secre
tary of agriculture, be asked to detail
from the government staff Penrof Wyle,
who is, perhaps, the greatest authority on
cereals, the influence of soil and climate
thereon in the country, and Professor
Dodge, the iest expert on vegetable nores,
to assist in the work.
Tt is nronosed to make a most exhaustive
examination in order to disclose, not that
one man's wheat is better than another a,
but that th narticular wheat, nnwteasea
certain particular qualities, and that as a
result of this inquiry the farmermay know
if his land is producing what the soil and
climate are best adapted for. The expert
will weigh in government standard meas
ures the wheat, carry it into the laboratory
to determine its glutinous properties, and
in the light of the information concerning
the soil and climate, the yield per bushel,
etc., which accompany the exhibit, make a
full, complete, and instructive report.
Moreover, the nomenclature and the
closeness to the original type and variety
presented by an exhibit will be fixed. Mr.
Thacher desires especially that this Co
lumbian exhibition shall be the occasion
for establishing a definite nomenclature
in cereals, fruits, flowers, etc. Ten men are
exhibiting ten plates of apples under ten
different names and yet the apples are dis- !
tinctively of one kind, called by different
names in different localities. AU this
creates confusion and disorder. Now is
the time to give by authority of the United
States government a true, simple, consist
ent nomenclature to the fruits and flowers
of this country at least.
Today is known as "Millers' Day" at the
fair, to which the meeting of the Michigan
millers yesterday was but a preliminary.
There was no set programme for this morn
ing, but at 2 o''clock p. m. the millers will
convene in the national commission room
in Administration building. Iresident E.
O. Stanard will call the meeting to order
and address the millers, after which a
communication, "The Extension of the
Export Trade in Flour," from Hon. J.
Sterling Morton, will be read. The rest of
the programme is as follows: "Reciprocity
With Canada What It Would Do for
Milling," an addreos by Hon. D. R. Mo
Ginnis; "Financial Legislation as Affect
ing the Milling Trade," by T. A. Taylor.

PURGING THE PENSION LISTS.
A Ions List of Deserters and Other FraudH
Washington, June Following the
instructions of Secretary Smith the pen
sion officials have inaugurated a search of
the fdes of the office for such pension
cases as are clearly fraudulent, and a long
list of names has been sent to Secretary
Smith by Commissioner Lochren with the
recommendation, which has been ap
proved, that the same be dropped from
the pension rolls.
In this list eleven were descrters-at-large,
as appears from the records of the
war department. A numlier did not serve
the required ninety days; others drawing
widows' pensions had remarried; one had
never been in the army or naval service.
Several were drawing pensions on account
of disabilities resulting from their own
vicious habits and one was living iu ''open
and notorious adultery."
CLEVELASD, June 29. The Ohio cold
water people met here and nominated for
governor Rev. Gideon P. Macklin, of Ger
man town; lieutenant governor, S. H. El
lis, of Columbus; treasurer, A. R. Ludlow,
of Clark county; attorney general, S. E.
Young, of Portage county. The platform
demands the annihilation of the liquor
traffic, endorses woman suffrage, pnd
favors election of president and senators
by direct vote.
Drowning of an Alpena Man.
rmrim. June 29. While Peter Demille.
of Alpena, Mich., was yachting on the
lake with a party or menus a suuuen gust
of wind careened the little vessel, throw
ing Demille headlong into the waves. Life
preservers were thrown to him, but he
sank before he could reach them. Mr.
Demille owned the glass works at Alpena
and was very wealthy. '
BRAGG DECLINES A MISSION.
He Wouldn't Go to China Altgeld s So
cialist, Bragg Says.
Chicago, June 29. General Bragg, of
Wisconsin, was in thla city en route to
California. In an interview he said: "I
have declined to accept the mission to
China, and do not believe I shall reconsider
my refusal. When in congresa I voted
against the Chinese exclusion act, and my
sentimenta have not changed since." Re
ferring to Governor Altgeld's pardoning of
the anarchists the old soldier observed: "It
only emphasizes and substantiates the
charge against Mr. Altgeld during the
campaign that be is a socialist."
It may be said in this connection that
there is hardly a newspaper In the United
States that has not condemned Governor
Altgeld's criticism on the anarchist trial.
Be Sore You're Right Before Too Shoot.
Ciiaska, Minn., June 29. John Wojohn,
of Chaska, was shot by a farmer who Urea
near Waconia. Mr. Wojohn having made
a long journey on foot is supposed to have
sat down in the road and fallen asleep.
The farmer coming along, and thinking he
saw a wolf or bear, ran home after his gun,
and returned accompanied by his brothers.
They fired, and then discovered their awful
mistake. Wojohn only lived long enough
to tell his name and home. Officers will
thoroughly investigate the story.
Bounced a Customs Collector.
Washington, June 29. The president
has summarily removed from office Lotan,
collector of customs at Portland, Ore., who
had already received his walking papers,
but whose successor had not qualified. His
original removal was the result of special
officers' charges that he did not enforce the
antf-Chiuese law against Chinese immi
grants, and this summary bouncing :s be
cause a large numlx?r of Chinese are about
to land, and Lotau's methods are not
wanted to prevail.
