Fpeolal to The Morning Call
London, Oct. 17.— The Star says it is al
lfgedin clerical circles that the summoning
of the four Archbishops of Ireland to Rome
■'.-..■ • is a mere formality, necessary to the fulfill
ment of their duty of presenting themselves
...'; . to the Pope once every five years. Ireland
'. '. however, says the Star, does not regard
.;■■'.'■ their going as an innocent and harmless af
'■: ■'" fair. The Archbishops are commanded to
take with them their senior suffragan
■'.".. Bishops. This indicates the Pope's desire
.-. ■ to assemble at the Vatican a representative
; : council of the Irish Catholic Church. That
■ . . an important move is pending beeomesmore
' v significant when it is known that Bishop
. ■■ • ■ O'Dwyer of Limerick will be at the Vatican
■ ■'■■ s.me time before Ins colleague; arrive. The
: Star, continuing, says: The summoning of
:. : the Archbishops is believed to be the find
effort on the part of the Vaticiu to assist the
..'■. Tories at a critical time. The elections are
'■■ . ' near, and prompt measures are necessary to
■ . propitiate Lord Salisbury. Th« Vatican is
""■,'•' convinced that it is to its interest to main
. • .'. tain the Tories in power and feels certain
. ■ that a Liberal government would nut con-
V; tinue negotiations in relation to Maltese
: ... ' mairinges. Besides, the advisers of the
. Pope bitterly ri-sent the refusal of the Irish
. .-•■ party to take its policy from Koine. The
• ■ irish party does not concern itself
■■-■ . with anything the Pope may do. It
.... : has the utmost confidence tha* the
- four Archbishops will advocate
"•'■■. ■ the party's cause independently a
. ■ Nationalists and not a3 ecel> siastics, and
;•■'."■ they may prevent the Vatican from making
.-'. a last and irretrievable error in is dealings
;':. with Irish Catholics. But the coterie of
■. ■ Cardinals an 1 Consignors at the call of
English Catholic Tories are now in the
'"..:': ascendant in the Papal councils, and it wil
be nearly impossible to defeat their scheme*,

Terrible Panic in a Chicago
The Burning of an Altar Curtain Causes a
Heroic but Futile Efforts of the Priest to
Restore Order— One Boy Killed and
Many Others Injured.
Special to The Morning Call.
Citicago, Oct. 17.— At 8 o'clock this
morning over 1000 children were gathered in
St. Stanislaus Roman Catholic Church,
where Father Barzynski was celebrating a
special mass. One of the altar curtains was
blown toward a candle by the wind. It sud
denly ignited and in an instant flared up.
The children rose to their feet in wild
alarm, hut the priest shouted to them to be
seated, as there was no danger, lie tore
down the curtain and trampled on it, and
all would have been over in two minutes
had it not been for a woman, whose identity
has not yet been learned. . She lost her head
and screamed wildly to the children to save
themselves; that the church was burning.
Instantly a wild panic en-ued, and de
spite the utmost efforts of the priest to re
strain them, the Children made a frantic rush
for the entrance. Some one turned in a fire
alarm, and when the engines and patrol
wagons came cluttering up the noise added
to the awful panic.
The cliiidren were packed in a dense
mass in the aisles, struggling and screaming,
and above all this could be heard the
screams and shouts of the agonized p;treut<
outside. Finally the police and firemen
managed to restore order.
it was then found that Frank D/.iewickis.
agert S, and Frank Urban, aged 9 year?,
were fatally injured, and twenty others
more or le>s seriously hurt.

in this city this morning that has. created
consternation among the friends of prohibi

restore the power of the Kansas prohibitory
law as against original-package saloons.

asent for a Kansas City liquor-house, was
arrested for selliug liquor at Tope'.sa after

Banner Does Hot Believe in Straight
away Courses for Trotters. !
New York, Oct. 17.— Horsemen . here
smiled when they read a Ciiicaeo dispatch
quoting Lucky Baldwin as saying thai
there will bo trotting at Moniiiouth
Park next yeir. Bonuer, however, j does
not like Baldwin's statement that Maud
S and Jay-Eye-See would stand no shim in
trotting on a straight mile course, ana that
the record would be lowered to 2 minutes.
He says the public patronize trotting
races to see this horses trot, and with
a mile straight away very little could
be seen. It is the most beautiful sight in
the world, and a trotting race can only bo
enjoveii on the regulation oval track. "
"Will you Bend aun'd for a record it tins
proposed track is perfect?"
"lam opposed to straight-away trr.,!:s,
Doth for runners and trotters. The oval
track is the only one for none-racing, »nd a
record made on straight-away or kite-shtL'ed
tracks is valueless. In my opinion Sujlol is
a wonderfully long strider, and this straight
away will be just tlie tiling lor her." ♦
Bonner does not believe a trotter will ever
fairly travel a two-minute mile. lie Rays:
"Thai's nonsense. .Ti.e fastest trotrir in
the world, bar none, is this filly aunol.
Why, look at her] She's only a baby",' just
now", yet only two horses, Maud S and Jny-
Eye-Spe, have trotted fas:«r. With (■very
thing turning out favorably she may get
down to 2:05 or 2:07. It may be 2:0% but
that is the limit of a tro'ter's speed." j

Washington, Oct. 17.— October crop
bulletin devotes more attention to California
than any other State in the Union. It says:
The past year lias been prosperous to trie
farmers of California, though the whole win
ter on the Pacific Coast was one of the most
severe ever known. The temperature was
very low, and the rain and snow-fall was
excessive. In the valleys of California
grain-sowing was interfered with, the seed
bed was cold, wet and heavy, and on large
areas the plant was drowned out by the
spring freshets and overflows. Barley, as
well as wheat, suffered from these unfavor
The wheat fields of the State lie
mainly in the Sacramento and San Joaquin
valleys, the conditions coverning the
cultivation and growth of cereals are radi
cally different in each valley. The precipi
tation in the Sacramento Valley is generally
abundant and the soil well able to with
stand drought, but it is peculiarly susceptible
to damage from excessive rains and resulting
floods. On the contrary, the lidds of tho
San Jonquin are more liable to injury from
drought, and are capable of withstanding a
heavy precipitation with little damage,
and this adaptability to opposite
meteorological conditions in the two
grain ceutfra renders a fair crop
in one section or other almost a cer
tainty and Uio conditions of the prcseat
season, while materially damaging tho out
put in the Sacramento Valley, insured good
results In the greater portion of the S:in
Joaquin. In Tulare and Fresno counties
the yield is probably larger than last year,
while in other counties of large production
estimates of th<t crop range from 23 to 75
per cent of the previous product. The con
sensus of local estimates might make the
crop of Ilia State from 70 to 75 per cent of
that of last year, though the department
will make no estimate until the close of
Uefinito estimates of the barley product
are difficult to arrive at. Among arable
crops it is second only to wheat, ami its use
is so wide ■■■:■ i varied. that., no record of crop
movement can be made. Large quantities
of this grain are now annually shipped irom
the State, both to foreign ports and domestic
markets cast of the Rocky Mountains. It is
a commerce carried., on Doth by sea and by
rail, no less than 27 per cent of the shipment
of 1888-B'J being overland. During that year
the aggregate shipments ■■ amounted to
21630,428 bushels, of which 1,294,426 bushels
weie to foreign countries and 1,826,002
bushels to domestic markets. ■
The averaeo price of No. 1 feed barley in
tho-'-Baa Francisco market, -based upon
actual sales, was, for the year under consid
eration, 75 5-0 cents per cental The crop of
the present year is short, being smaller pro
portionally than that of wheat, and the
effect of the reduced yield is already ap
parent in the reduced shipments from the.
State and the increased market price of the
product in San Francisco. The price of No.
1 feed barley on October 1, ISSSIt, was 72J4
cents Per cental, while at about the same
dato the present season it was $1 37, having
nearly doubled in value.
In spite of the short wheat crop the price
of that cereal has not materially changed
during the past twelve months, and in view
of the prospect of a shortened supply in the
world's markets and the certainty of a
smaller product for this country, the failure
of prices to respond is peculiar.
The mo-t remarkable results of the year
have been in the fruit and vine industries of
the coast. The fruit crop was one of only
medium production, beiug below the usual
average or standard both in quantity and
quality, the hard winter and wet spring be
ing unfavorable to full development. Un
der ordinary conditions, it would have been
a year of discouragement, but the practical
failure of all fruits east of the Kooky .Moun
tains created such a demand from the New
York markets and so advanced the prices
as to make it a season of unexampled pros
perity in horticultural interests.
As soon as it was apparent that the fruit
cr«p of the East was a failure, early in the
year, shrewd dealers throughout the country
began to make arrangements to handle Cali
fornia products, ana the overland ship
ments have been enormous, comprising the
choicest of the Slate's production. The
prices paid have been such as it might be
said growers never noped to realize, and t!ie
crou was large enough to Rive all who are
interested in the Industry the benefit of the

local i rod net. thus creating a taste and de
mand which will continue hereafter, even
In less favorable years. The year has pie
sente'd a gulden opportunity for dissemina
tion throughout the country of a practical
knowledge of the fruits of the Golden State,
and every advantage has been taken of it.
A trade has been opened up which must
continue with mutual benefit to producers
and consumers of line fruit, despite the dis
tance and costly transportation.
The records of the total shipments to
points outside of the State are not yet re
ceived, but San Francisco authorities on the
fruit trade believe that It will be equal to
10.OU0 Car-loads, and a liberal estimate would
make the value of these shipments perhaps
$lO.uoo,(i€O, a value almost half as large as
that of the State's exportation of wheat dur
ing 188' J.
Peaches have brought growers $S0 per
ton, with higher prices for choice varieties,
and all grades, as a rule, have commanded
from double last year's prices upward.
Wine grapes are bringing better values than
ever heretofore realized, the general pros
perity oi the year extending to all branches
of horticulture and winy-growing.
On the whole the year will go into history
as one of g.ifcral prosperity of the agricul
tural interests of California.

or n iiitppii ii i'ivi ■» i
A fuiieral took place at Cincinnati that
had back of it a very sad story. The corpse
had been taken frnni the pickling vat of a
medic; ! college and prepared for burial.
September 17th last an Bged and very feeble
woman was received sit the Betts-street
Hospital, She was accompanied by a man
who did not give his name, but introduced
himself a> her son-in-law. The woman was
so infirm that Ibe Sister who usually takes
the record of the cu>:es immediately took
charge of tins patient and took her to her
apartment The man then left without giv
ing oilier iulorinatioulthan.thai be lived in a
small place. Soon the first Sister returned
to the receiving-room. Going over the rec
ords she finally made out tint tlio old
woman's name was Mrs. Wilhelmina Franke
and her age 7-4 years. The name of her
nearest friend as the regular entry has It
was illegibly written. Une only part that
could be made out was "Charles." The
rest baffled the best efforts of the Sisters.
It was then decided to complete the record
when somebody came U> visit the old woman.
Two regular visiting days passed and no
one called tv see her. Tlie listers tried to
have the woman recall the name of some re
lative. Nut only was she Infirm, however,
but her mental faculties were so badly de
ranged that nothing Intelligible could ue
obtained Iron her.
Meanwhile her condition was steadily
growing inure serious, and September -7.1 i
she died. The relatives Buppoaed, as they
heard nothing to the contrary, that the old.
lady was doing well. It was merely to in
quire about their mother's health that
brought Mr. Franks and his sister to the
hospital Thursday. Worn she asked what

signs of trepidation at the task before liim.
Maxwell said: "Brace up, old man; you

Chicago, Oct. 17.— The Union National
Bank began an attachment to-day against

The attachments are levied on the surplus
securities held by the Commercial, National
and American Exchange banks In this city.
All these have been amply secured. The
