FpecUl Dispatches to The Mobsin'o Call.
City of Mexico, Sept 11.— According to
advices received here ol the shooting of Gen
eral Barrundia, CaptalD Pitts of the Aca
pulco has made a declaration which the
Guatemalan authorities claim completely
justifies their action. Mizner, the American
Minister, the authorities say, was cousul'.oi
as an act of courtesy only. Ths dispatches
further say that when Captain Toriello
and Captain Pitts read to Barrundia the
order for his delivery to the Guatemalan
authorities, JJarrnndia asked permission to
change his clothes, which wai granted.
Turning away, Barrundia suddenly gra'ped
two revolvers and fired on Torielio, Pitts
and a policeman, who, in return, fired on
Earrundia, killing him.
Reports of the probability of war between
Guatemala and Mexico are unfounded.
President Diaz said to-day: "I want no
war. I want to see Mexico prosper in
l>eace." The Secretary of Fsrelga Affairs
said he did not believe in war, and Guate
mala wanted peace to furtuer her indus

Opening cf tie Third General Conference at
Montreal. Sept. 11.— The third General
Conterence of the Methcdist Church of
Canada opened yesterday. Over fifty dele-
Kates were present. The sc?sii n was taken
up in hearing the address cf Hi v. Dr. Car
man, the General Superintendent. Among
the most important questions to be discussed
are the advisability of estabtishine a Jlethid
ist Sisterhood and the advisability of petition
ing Parliament as reg irds the vexed question
of clerical precedence. In the memorial
which it Is proposed to sen.l it ii state! the
British North American Act recognizes the
equality of all religious bodies before the
law, but that the order of precedence at the
Dominion and Provincial receptions ignores
the very existence of their church and other
nou-E; iscop.il churche», -representing a
majority of the Dominion. They protest
against such offensive discrimination against
more than half the population.
The British Columbian Conference has
taken a bold step, ahead in the Woman's
Ricuty movement' and will present to the
general borivw^i'.enibrial asking tor the
*~ath*!<-i.jn of H^eu to a place en the church
court?. The r^iorial from the Pacific con
cerns itself wuh. posture at the Lord's
Table, and requests The General Conference
to amend the ritual so that the posture of the
communicant shall be that of sitting instead
of kneeling, as more in harmony with the
origin and spirit of the institution.

IHE SOUTHAMPTON" STRIKE.
Police Foibid the Holdice of Proce!»ion«— An
Southampton. Sept. 11.— The strikers
are mere quiet; no riotous demonstrations
have been made. The police have issued an
order forbidding the holding of processions
and the leaders of the strikers promised to
see it wa3 obeyed.
Ship-owners are wiring t!ier agents to

The London Morning Post unfavorably
eompane the great strikes at Pittsbtirg and
Chicago, whicli resulted in disaster to life
and pnnerty, to the Southampton ttrifce.
Tlie writer attributes the violence of the
American strikes to tlie severity of the meas
ures adopted to repulse tbeni. The American
authorities are much readier to adopt sum
mary and harsh treatment than tlie English.
There is really a better feeling between dif
ferent clnsses here than in America, and it
results in cool and humane conduct ou the
part of those in power.
Quiet once more prevails. At a confer
ence ( f strikers this afternoon it was de
cided to return to work on the concession
offered a fortnight ago. One of the leaders
-aid the fact that tlib strike had been precip
itated without the authority of the London
Executive Committee precluded the hope
of success. The decision to resume work
was fiercely opposed by the minority, and
it may be. upset to-morrow. The conces
sion, if ncrvpted, means an advance of :i
jenny an hour. Troops are still in attend
ance, but no trouble is anticicateJ.

General Sherman was on the platform. Mr-
Depew made a speech. He thanked the
club for its cordial welcome upon his return
from abroad and Bald: "Of all the great
Americans known on the other side, not
even excepting General Grant, none are so
well known as James G. Blame and William
McKinley. They seem to regard Me-
Kinley as a man who has been studying
up economic subjects and invented a new
scheme by which to close up the factories
of Europe and starve the people into
sulmisMui to the American Government.
They plied me with questions r.s to MeKin
ley and tried to get an expression a» to the
nature of the man ami what he is going to
(In with all people abroad. 1 replied that
my notion of McKlnl?y was that i ossihly
he had an idea of Inducing them to emigrate
with all their factories and workmen to the
great American country, and thus help give
greater consuming power to our agricul
tural products. Inasmuch as some of the
groat governments had taken a notion that
they did not want to be on familiar terms
with the American boe, the best they couM
do was to increase the consuming capacity

The Ore.iniz-.tion of Syndic-.tM for Ie-

New York, Sept. 11.— Levy Mayer, the
Chicago lawyer, who has been identified
with the formation of n number of big
English syndicate* in this country, and who
went to Europe last summer to find in
vestors in American property and enter
prises, returned yesterday. lie said:
"Tin-re are two companies which 1 repre
sented in London— tin; Anglo- American In
vestment Company and the City of London
Contract Company. The Analu-American
will have its headquarters in London, with
branches in New York, Chicago, St. Paul,
Omaha and San Francisco. The capital is
$16,000,000, of which 18,290,000 will have
been paid in London by to-day. The re
mainder will be paid to-morrow. There
has beenltpporlianed to bo pail in by Direc
tors of the company in each of the principal
American cities $530,100. The American
Directors of the enterprise are bankers,
financiers and leading business men. The
Anglo-American Investment Conifany ha?
several schemes on loot, each of which is a
big investment in itself. It has placed

chase of three large sugar plantations
in the Sandwich Islands now owned by a

City of London Contract Company." con
tinued Mayer, "which was organized to
float American schemes, I happened to know
that will. in iliu last few months very many
American investment enterprises— bie ones,
too— have come to grief in London. It isn't
putting it too strung to say that out of 200
enterprises sent over to England to be
Heated not five have found backers with
British gold. The contrary Is believed In
this country, I know, and it is well known
that in every big city in America there are
curbstone-workers who buy options on all

London to place them." ,
THE WOKI.KS FAIR.

at the World's Fair headquarters to-day
wm tbat of the selection of a Director-Gen
eral. General D. Jl. Hastings if Pennsyl-
vania arrived this morning and is under
stood to be working for tlie position. A. T.
(iosliorn, ex-Director-General of the, Centen
nial, can hardly be culled a candidate, but it
is possible if the honor were tendered him
unanimously lie might accept. Ex-Congress
man George K. Davis of Chicago is also
"A strong sentiment prevails among a
portion at least of tlie National Commission
that the double site is an unfortunate selec
tion, and the matter will undoubtedly be re
considered next Monday." So said Hon.
Mark McDonald of California, the World's
Fair Commissioner at Large, when shown
by an Associated Press reporter a svnocsis
of the proceeding* of the World's Fair Con
vention at San Francisco.
Mr. McDonald added : "The action of
the convention emphasizes the feeling I
found in talking, before coming here, with
the leading reople on the Pacific Coast.
Since reaching > Chicago I have fre
quently expressed myself to that effect.
The local talk hero about the necessity
for a division of the site, else a portion of
the city may defeat the proposed issue of
municipal bonds in -aid of the great enter
prise, v simply absurd and utterly unworthy
of Chicago. The fair is worth untold mill
lent to the city in investments that will bo
made here and the money spent here in
hundreds of ways by visiting multitudes.
Of course the fair should be held on the
1 ike-front shore, for the cool breeze, marine
displays and no end of other reasons. But
tint is no cause for catling up the fair and
putting a portion of it miles away from tho
remainder. There is any desired quantity
of water front at Jackson Park, and right
there is where the fair should be wholly
placed." . --.;-.■-;-',

empire of vaster dimensions than most
of as are accustomed, to think. It
produces in truly astonishing abundance
fruits of all climates, from the peaches
and apples of the north to the banann,
orange and even the nutmeg of the.
tropics. In its lawless luxuriance, of
climate it does all this almost
irrespective of latitude. Its people
know and see that what lus been
done ts only the beginning, and that the
future of their State holds possibilities of
which the past is but a meager index.

land in Calaveras County, Cai., was selected
as the site of a prospective town, but there was
no actual settlement for townsite purposes
under the townsite laws. The Secretary
says : ■ " The mere fact that a tract of land
may be occupied for purposes of trade and
business will not except it from entry under
the pre-emption homestead laws If such
trade and business is afterward abandoned,
nor - will a revival of trade and business

Land Grant Forfeiture Bill.
Washington, Sept. 11.— The House bill
for the sale of certain lands for school pur
poses in the town of Pelican, Wis.,' was
placed on the calendar.
The resolution offered yesterday by Mor
gan calling on the Secretary of the Interior
for information as to the lands of the North
ern Pacific Railroad and other companies
whose roads were not completed within the
period fixed by the granting act, was agreed
The conference report on the Railroad
Land Forfeiture Bill was taken up. The
main proposition is contained in the first sec
tion forfeiting to the United States all lands
heretofore granted to any State or corporation
to aid the construction of a railroad opposite
to and coterminous with a portion of any
such railroad not cow | complete arid in
operation, for the construction or benefit of
which such lands were granted, and all such
lands shall be declared a part of the public
domain; provided, that this act shall not be
constructed as forfeiting the right ot way or
station ground of any railroad company
which has heretofore been granted.
. Morgan opposed the report as a log-rolling
scheme gotten up for the benefit of all land
grant roads. bile the first section pro
fessed to be a forfeiture, all the other sec
tions related to separnto railroads and ex
empted them from the operation of the for
feiture section, or else secured them pecu
niary advantages. ; The most that could be
said of tho bill was that a few small rail
roads that had not got friends enough in the
two houses were to be crucified for the sake
of glossing over and varnishing the false pre
tense of a general forfeiture.. After speak
ing for over four hours Morgan yielded to a
motion to adjourn. - - ..*.

Stocktons. Lookabaugh snowed up in poor
form, while Speer made poor success' of
throwing the ball to the second bag.
Uanley's lame arm and an error of Levy's

their four-inning sleep and Lookabaugh
went safely to first on radio's muff of a fine
fly, and to second on a passed ball, stealing
third and scoring on Shea's bit to Fudger.
With Shea and Ycach on bases, Ebricht tent
a hot grounder past Fudger," bringing in
both runners. For the .Stocktons Vogt went
to first on ball", was advanced by Pacbe and

' In the seventh the Friscos again took a
batting streak. Shea sent the ball over
Wilson's head and scored on llanley's
triple. Stevens took first on balls. Ebright
b-.tttrd the ball to Ilollidny, bringing Hanley
home. Everett then sent a triple to the
right-field fence, scoring Stevens and
Ebright. Armstrong for the Stocktons went

scored on Pacha's safe hit.
In the eighth Lookabangh sent a three
bagger that hit the right-field ■ flag, and
