NERS. OF THE BANNERS.
Snu Francisco. July 9.?The Interim
tionii' Christinu Emleiivor convention be?
gun here to-day. Sixteen .thousand dele?
gates were present.
President Clark, in his annual address,
said in part: "You can readily perceive
why this year 1 have chosen for the suo
ject of my annual message the theme, 'A
World-Encircling Religions Movement;
How Shall It Fulfil Gods Desitin?'
"At "the 'Invitation of friends Tuna In
obedience t(j the call of God, an I believe,
I have, during the last year been journey?
ing in many lauds, among many ;peop'e
who speak many tongues. Thete jour?
neys hi behalf of Christian Endeavor have
carried mo more than 40,000 'miles, to
more than a score of peoples, who speak
nearly as many languages. One factor
I have found constant Jin all these lands;
I have found Christian Endeavor princi?
ples everywhere the same?the same
pledue, the same consecraMon meetiutr,
the same general liuf s o( elfort for the
Master, called committee work: tho ut?
most dlveislty in uuesseutial details: the
utmost similarity of purpose in essential
.^"Societies that are as widely separated
In miles and mauuer as the Bengalis,
who live in the swamps of Gauges, and
the Kaffirs on the uplands of Africa,from
the Endeavorers of the ^Golden Gate and
the Alameda, have subscribed to thu
same'eoveuant pledge, aud, better still,
are keeping It.
'"i have attended conventions since last
T met you iu the Metropolitan Tabernacle
of London and in the Heels of Bengal; in
St. Andrew's IIa'1 of Glasgow, and In
the nncieut capital of the Punjab; among
our Irish Endeavorers In Helfast, and on
the sunburnt plains ot Southern India:
in crowded Berlin, and on the lonely
tablelands of the Transvaal; among the
Alps of Switzerland, aud on the vast
veldt ol tho Orange Free State; in sea?
girt Stockholm, and in the karoo of
South Africa; In lordly Paris, and in
(Mtiet Wellington; iu the Cape of Good
Hope, made sacred to many of you by
the life aud labors of Andrew Murray
antl his associates; aud everywhere, amid
all these diversities of custom and cos?
tume, of manners and methods, of lan?
guage and laws, i have found that the
Christian Endeavor ideals are substan?
tially the same.
"Moreover, the peoples whom I have
seen have been of diverse creeds and
views of religious truth. All, to be sure,
have acknowledged the supremacy of
Jesus Christ as thevfry Son of God and
tho only Saviour of lost sinners: all have
accepted tho Bible as the Word of God,
ami the Holy Spirit as the sancMfler,
comforter and uuide?in such soil only
can Christian Endeavor Moorish."
Mr. Clark then admonished the En?
deavorers to lie faithful to their cardinal
principles, "The World for Christ. The
Nation for Christ. The Family for
Christ. Mysel' for Christ."
Secretary Baer said in his report:
"Since last we met our organization has
been swelled by 5,0C0 new societies. Re?
joice with exceeding joy, for the world?
wide enrollment is now 00,747 local socie?
ties What a swift and mighty flood!
In 1881, one society and fifty-seven mem
hers. In ISO?, 50,780 societies and a to?
tal membership of 3,000,000.

vincial streams In this country that have
over; 1,000 local societies Pennsylvania
still leads with 3,433; New York, 3,04!?:

the fourth place, with 2,013; Ontario,
1.783; Indiana, 1,387; Iowa. 1,330, aud
Michigan, with 1,071, for the first time
is entitled to a place In this class. These
figures do not include the junior socie?
ties, with their boys and girls, the inter
mediate societies witt their lads and las?
sies, the senior and mother societies for
the fathers and mothers and those who
In years are no longer ^considered young.
"The junior badge banner, given to
the State that has made the largest gain
in junior societies during the year, was
first presented at Montreal to New York,
and at the three annual conventions
since that time Pennsylvania has proudly
carried it away; but. this year nur good
'pig iron' friends must piss that bauner
over to the 'buckeyes' of Ohio.
"The other junior badge banner, first
given to the District of Columbia at Mon?
treal for the greatest proportionate in?
crease in number of junior societies, and
held successively by Delaware.Asainiboie
and Mexico, must now pass from Mexico
to Spain. A Christian Endeavor banner

to proceed at once to Honolulu. The

Advices from Honolulu state that while

City of Pekiu arrived here late to day.
She had been he'd by the authorities at
Honolulu until the steamer Marlposa ar?

ratification of the treaty. A big supply
of fireworks had been .purchased to cele?
brate the event.
THE STATE OF TRADE.
The Wheat Crop May Prove a Factor for
New York, July 1).? Dun's Review cf
Trade tomorrow will say:
The strike of the bituminous coal
miners takes ,75,(100 or more men from
work. It threatens to restrict the sup?
ply ol fuel from some quarters though
the miners of West Virginia and at some
other points have refused to quit ?vork.
These operators claim to be able to meet
the demands of the Eastern States for
some mouths. At the West the strike is
not by any means unitedly sustained and
the impression prevails that, the strike
will be short lived.
Toe tin plate works throughout the
country have settled.the wate question
and aM are agaiu'husy.
A ?eneral settlement as to wages in
the iron and steel industries is expected
without much delay. Thf new orders in
these lines are _small since the annual
Cotton mills have a steady increasing ]
demand. Woolen mills are getting more
orders. Heather was saved from a de?
cline in prices, though quotations do not
change. There is a ;great snrinkage In
the demand for boots and slices.
Each week raises the estimate ot the
wheat crop, which promises to be im?
mense, and if the weather ; continues
favorable it will be an important factor
for future business. 'Ohe prospects Cor a
big corn crop are good.
The failures for the week were '.200,
against '~l? for the same week last year.
A CUBAN RUMOR.
The Impression Prevails That Weyler
Key West, July I).?Humors are rife
here that some important jnove is pend?
ing in Cuba. One of the ;unta leaders
here received a private message last night
'mplying that something very important
had transpired and in which reference
was made to Weyler's resignation. The
message, which was [ in cipher, was all
mixed.-.un and could not the deciphered,
but from its tenor it is conjectured that
Weyler either resigned or his resignation
would go in at once on account of the
! failure of his western campaign. It
created much excienient here.'

Each of these two men staked $0,000 on

ALTY TO THEIR URETHREN.
UNITED STATES DEPUTY MAR?
SHALS ON DUTY AT DILLON
VALE?NO LAWLESSNESS YET.
Pittsburg, July 0.?Tho close of the
third day of the mluers' strike finds the
diggers Raining strength rapidly in the
Pittsburg district, elating the ollicials
and men correspondingly. The net result
of the struggle up to date, as gleaned
from unbiased as well as from partisau
sources, is about as follows
Nineteen thousand men idle, an almost
total suspension of work in the mines
alone the Monougahela river; suspension
practically ftal on the Wheeling divi?
sion of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad,
only about fifty men working tberc;all ot
the railroad mines closetl down, with the
exception of ttie M. A. Hnnua ?.V- Co.
mines along the Panhandle, tho New
York and Cleveland Gas Coal Company,
and a few individual mines, which can
have but little effect on tho ^situation.
The coming out of the ih?n along the
Baltimore and Ohio is [n decided victory
for the miners, because these men were
working tinder an ironclad agreement,
and by their loyalty to their brethren
forfeit $8,000 in wages which the com?
pany holds out.
The situation as to the supply of coal
cannot be called serious as vet, because
there are from 12,000,000 to 15,000,000 of !
bushels of the black diamonds in stock
at the various pools along the river
which can be placed in this city at short
notice, and, if need be, a portion uf It
could be shipped to the lakes. Up to the
preseut time no sitrns of unlawfulness
has developed among the strikers, and
no evidence whatever that there will be.
United States deputy marshals are at
Dillonvale, W. Ya., where tho railroads
will attempt to put the men who were
forced out of the mines Wednesday back
to work to-morrow. To-night Antonio
Dominicko was arrested at Dillonvale, at
the instiiratiou of United Status author?
ities, on the charge of bringing iu a car
load of teer for the purpose, they cUim,
of Inciting on the strikers to violence
The situation on the Wheeling and
Luke Erie is undoubtedly serious. More
trouble is apprehended from tho passing
through of West Virginia coal than from
the partial operation of one or two mines
through protection given by the United
States marshals. Miners in the Fair
mount region of West Virginia have noti
lied tho operators that they will not
strik<>. Those iu the Georges Creek re?
gion are ivorking steadily.
Chicago, .Tuly i).?Railroad companies
today issued orders to confiscate all coal
being carried over their lines. The order
carried confusion in ".its execution, and
local coal companies who expected to
receive special shipments to meet the de?
mand of the day were thrown on their re?
sources to overcome the difficulty.
Fully l?.OOO carloads from the mines
j in Southern Illinois were confiscated by
the railroad companies. The seizure is
because of a recent supreme court opin?
ion wh'ch says that in case of strikes the
railroad companies have t.be right to
confiscate any coal on its property re?
gardless of the consignee.

Cincinnati, duly 5).?This morning the
bodies of a man and woman, apparently

Austria-Hungary Now Threatens
A SENSATIONAL REPORT FROM
PARIS?FRENCH [MINISTER OF
MARINE SAID TO HAVE IN?
STRUCTED THE ADMIRAL * IN
COMMAND TO MOBILIZE : HIS
FLEET WITH THE VIEW OF
MAKING A DEMONSTRATION.
London, July 9.?Eastern affairs show
bvit little change during tho last twenty
four hours. A sensational newspaper iu
Paris published a rumor to day that M.
Hanotnux, minister of foreign alT.iirs,
had informed the cabinet that matters in
the east were fery serious, and that Ad?
miral Besnnrd, the minister of marine,
had iustrticted the atlmiriil in command
of the Mediterranean Hect to mobolize
his forces with a view of making a naval
demonstration in tho Bosphorus, but
this is regarded as unueccssarily alarmist.
More to the purpose is the fact that
Austria-Hungary has presented a note to
the Porte declaring that unless the Turk?
ish government appoints a day for tho
Turkish military commission to discuss
with the Kuropean attaches the strategic
frontier proposed \hy Europe the AtnlKis
sadors will request .their respective gov?
ernments to atlopt energetic measures.
According to the best information ob?
tainable this strategic frontier would
give Turkey about 200 square kilometres
of territory in the district of Metzova
' and some villages in theTyrnavos district.
The indemnity would be 4,300,000 pounds
Turkish, 1 .?l?0,0DO pounds to be paid on
the departure of the Turks from Thes
saly and an equal amount iu the cottrso
of n year,a Franco-English company rais?
ing the money by farming the Greek cus?
toms. These concessions are made with
a view of enabling the sultan to overcome
the objections of the war party. It is
the general belief that the negotiations
I are likely to continue until the end of the
year, when winter will compel Turkey to
withdiaw her troops from Thessuly. Just
now, while the weather is good and food
abundant, it is comparatively easy to
keep them there. An imperial 'order bas
been issued to the commaudaut of the
Dardanelles to- prepare for the sailiug of
the Turkish ueet under sealed orders.
Vienna, July 9 ?Tho scmlofliclal
Fremdeublatt to-day' warns Turkey that
the harmony of the powers is not im?
paired und that the policy of the Turkish
government is doomed to failure If It
counts upon a dit-agreement. The Frem?
"Russia nndF tnnce,like other'powers,
have agreed that the [negotiations must
be brought to a close, and the Porte will
become convinced that its attempts to
deduce extreme consr<|nonces from tho
Turkish victories are vain and must fail
before the firm will of Europe."
