COLUSA, Aug. 27.—N0 talk of lynch
ing Pedro Vanaily, who committed a
murderous assault on Miss Poirier three
days ago, has been heard since the mi
litiumen reported for duty at the Jail
last evening. The town is quiet to
night, and there is no apparent indi
cation of trouble. Two companies of
the National Guard, B of Colusa and D
of Marysville, are under arms at the
jail, and subject to the order of Sher
iff Jones. Company D will probably re
turn to Marysville to-morrow, but the
Sheriff says he will keep Company B
on hand until he is satisfied that all

Miss Poirier is now resting easily, and
the attempts at lynching her assailant
will not likely be renewed, unless the
girl takes a decided turn for the worse.
Meanwhile Vanaily, under special
guards in the jail, is gradually grow
ing weaker. It is unlikely that he will
live long enough to receive legal pun
ishment for his crime.

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 27. — The
Philadelphia branch of the National
Association of Letter Carriers to-day
received word that the annual conven
tion of the national body, which was
to have been held from September Bth
to 11th in San Francisco, has been
changed to Chicago, because of the

President Parsons of New York, it was
stated, has ordered a meeting of the
local branches throughout the country
to ratify the change.

and anxious to have the convention.
Prominent members of the local
branch here state that they will go to
San Francisco, and will not recognize
any convention in Chicago unless a
meeting of the delegates to the na
tional convention of last 'year is called,
and so decides.

RAN AGAINST WALCOTT.
A San Francisco Coal Merchant
Has a Little Experience.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27— E. L.
Andrews, a coal merchant, had an ex
perience to-night that he will not for
get in a hurry. Andrews was on his
way to the ferry in a street car in which
were sitting Joe Walcott, who con
quered George Green last night, his
manager, O'Rourke, and George Dixon.
Andrews, who knew his fellow passen
gers, began to denounce " niggers," es
pecially prize-fighters, when Dixon en
tered a mild protest, to which Andrews
responded with a blow on the little
fellow's jaw. O'Rourke interposed, and
further trouble was averted until the
ferry landing was readied, when Wal- T
cott, boiling over with rage, caught
Andrews a right hander on the jaw,
sending him a dozen feet across the
road. Andrews retreated, and the
sloggers caught their boat.
His Execution Will be Delayed Un
til October, at Least.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27.—Warden
Hale of San Quentin was somewhat
startled this morning when he called
upon Attorney-General Fitzgerald to
consult him as to the action he should
take in the case of Benjamin Hill, the
Oakland wife murderer, for the latter
official, upon learning that Hill's attor
neys had applied to Judge De Haven in
chambers for their writ of habeas cor
pus, expressed the opinion that the
proceedings were irregular, and that,
therefore, he saw no legal reason why
the execution should be deferred.
Hill's attorneys, upon being informed
of this opinion, lost no time in applying
to Judge De Haven in open court for
the writ, which was denied; and a mo
tion for an appeal to the Supreme Court
of the United States was promptly filed
and allowed. The execution will, there
fore, be delayed until that body meets
in October and decides the case.

"Do the Work Next to You," Is the
Meaning of Their Cross.
"It is easier to be good in church and
in doing church work than it is to be
good at home and do the work there,"
writes Mrs. Margaret Bottome of the
King's Daughters in the "Ladies' Home
Journal." "To wear the cross means
to do the work next to you. It is much
easier for our girls to dress up and go
out to engage in some charitable work
or church work than it is to help their
mothers to keep the house in proper
order, and relieve their tired hearts, and
maybe their tired feet. The work of a
Daughter in our order means home be
fore the church or any charity work.
All over this land the need for daugh
ters is to be charitable to their moth
ers, and bear the burdens their mothers
will have to bear unless they take the
burden, and as the President of our
order I wish to emphasize this. Our
daughters are to be the mothers of the
future, and we must have more perfect
daughters in our homes. No amount
of outside work can compensate for the
neglect of work that mother must do
if the daughters do not share the home
burdens with her. Unselfishness in
the home is the meaning of the cross
we wear. The priceless wreath of
character is made by willingness to
wash the dishes and sweep the rooms,
which work the mother must do if her
daughters do not."
"General," cried the Orderly riding
up to headquarters in great excite
ment, "our left wing is gone."
"Then it is no longer possible to fly."
returned the General thoughtfully.
"However, we should not forget that
our legs are left."

A Break in the Market at Chicago
and New York.
Fall of Nearly Six Cents a Bushel at the
The Bears Unload an Enormous
Amount of Holdings on the
Market, Causing a Sensation
Among the Bulls, Who Quit
CHICAGO, Aug. 27— Wheat fur
nished another sensation to-day. This
time it was the bulls who suffered,
September closing 5%c lower and De
cember at a decline of 3%c, after a ses
sion, remarkable for small trading and
extremely violent fluctuations.
All the enthusiasm has apparently
leaked out of the holders of wheat at
the opening. Liverpool furnished a dis
agreeable surprise to them, starting
2\/- 3 to 2%d lower. This was entirely
unlooked for, after yesterday's 2c ad
vance here, and it fairly took the bulls'
breath away. There was practically
no demand for December wheat at the
opening. The consequence was that it
started at W% to 90c, or 3% to 3%c
below yesterday's close, and dropped
almost instantly to 88% C
A perfect flood of wheat was poured
oA th s market for a few minutes, in
cluding many stop loss orders. Dur
ing that time there was almost a total
lack of buying orders, but they made
their appearance at 89% C, and five
minutes after December rallied to 91c.
September wheat was hardly heard of
for the first few minutes in the ex
citement accompanying the unloading
of December. It was fully as weak at
the immediate opening, however, start
ing all the way from 93'. 2 to 92c, or a
drop of exactly llVL>e from the highest
point reached yesterday.
The excitement soon subsided almost
altogether and fluctuations from the
extreme narrowness of trading were
frequent and violent, one or two mod
erate trades being sufficient to put the
price up lc or down %c or more.
That some mysterious bear influence
was at work on the market before the
opening was the general opinion. It
was stated later on what was consid
ered reliable authority that a combina
tion, including Charles Counselman and
John Cudahy, had been formed to
break the alleged bull pool, and that
the eccentricity of to-day's mar
ket was due to the manipulations of
the now combine.
The market was steadied somewhat
by the midday strength of corn, but
became radically weak again on re
ports that foreigners were reselling at
the seaboard. December rose to 91% C,
but declined on that to 88V->c It had
recovered to 90c at the close. Sep
tember sold as high as 90c, but closed
DIG DROP AT NEW YORK.
NEW YORi:, Aug. 27.—Wheat lost 5
cents a bushel to-day, and the lowest
point was about 10 points under the
top notch of the season. There were
not enough influential bulls left in the
mark.?t to make a respectable fight
agatost the declining tendency. They
have nearly all become interested in
com, which everybody in the trade
has been educated to believe is on the
eve of a boom. Consequently, when
Liverpool opened away off this morn
ing, and followed it up with further
declines on later cables, the local , mar
ket simply went to pieces. It looked
for a time as if the bottom had drop
ped out, so rapidly did prices slide down
hill in response to the rain of selling
orders with which the brokers bom
barded the market. There was prac
ticaly no support other than that af
forded by a little buying against puts.
The December option settled to 9oc
on firrt sales, which was a break of 4
cents a bushel from last night. Then
it skirmished around for a time, buf
feted up and down by conflicting or
ders, but soon settled into a steady de
cline, which finally landed it half an
hour before the close at 93% c. Soon
it rallied to !>4?tc, where it left off.
Selling was general during tne day.
THE EXTRA DUTY CLAUSE.
It Was Inserted in the Tariff Bill
BOSTON, Aug. 27.—1n a letter to the
"Herald," published to-day, Senator
William E, Chandler, in explaining the
construction of the clause of the new
tariff bill imposing a 10 per cent, extra
duty on all foreign products coming
through Canada into the United States,
holds that the legislation was passed
by writing it as new matter into a con
ference report, where it was adopted by
both houses of Congress without being
noticed by more than those persons en
gaged in the scheme.
The Senator points out that the con
ference committee went beyond its
powers when it inserted this impor
tant amendment into a clause of the
law about only five words of which the
Senate and House had disagreed upon.
The wording so much affects New
England trade. Senator Chandler says,
that each one of the Senators and Rep
resentatives may be fairly called upon
to state what, if anything, he knew
about it. and why he did not expose
and try to defeat it.
Continuing, Senator Chandler says:
"For myself, I regret to say that I did
not notice what the Committee of Con
ference had done. Senator Cannon in
open Senate asked whether they in
tended to do anything but settle the
differences between the two houses—
whether they intended to put any new
matter into the bill—and Senator Al
lison replied emphatically that of course
they did not.
"Having had experience with confer
ence reports, which should have warned
me to read every word of this report. I
have no excuse to offer for not doing
so. I hope to be forgiven by my con
stituents, but I shall never forgive my

PARISIAN PAPERS COMMENT
Revival of Hope That Alsace and
Lorraine Will Again Be
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 27.—1t was
semi-officially announced to-day that
conferences between the French and
Russian Ministers of Foreign Affairs
were held first in the presence of the
Czar and afterwards in the presence of
President Faure. It is added that re
sults are most satisfactory for the in
terests of France and Russia and for
the peace of the world.
PARIS, Aug. 27.—The morning news
papers of this city express delight at
the fact that, by the mention of the
word "alliance," in the toasts of the
Czar and President Faure, on board
the French cruiser Pothuau at Cron
stadt yesterday, the world has been in
formed of the fact that a distinct un
derstanding really exists between
France and Russia, and that this un
derstanding is apparently in the nature
of an alliance for the preservation of
the peace of Europe, though some of
the French papers, the "Rappel," for
instance, are inclined to believe that
the alliance means Russia's support of
France in the event of the latter at
tempting to reconquer Alsace and Lor
raine from Germany.
On this subject, as cabled to the As
sociated Press last night, the "Rappel"
"The hour of reparation is about to
strike. Alsace and Lorraine will become
French again, and the great peace
spoken of on board the Pothuau will be
built on the shattered debris of Powers
founded on brute force."
The "Gaulois" says of the mentioning
of the word "alliance." such an expres
sion was not inserted in the toast for
nothing. "It was no mere verbal flour
ish. There never are flourishes in the
Czar's toasts, and we can only see in it
the very soul and inspiration of the al

an alliance for peace. We must bid
farewell to our patriotic hopes."

different view of the question, saying:

equity, it is no longer forbidden that
France should think of Alsace and Lor

A Rural Youth Who Swapped a
Cow for a Wheel.
It appears that Mr. BasseAt is quite a
bicycle rider and spends considerable
time on his wheel. As he whirled along
the country roads near his farm the
riding was greatly admired by a sim
ple-minded youth, who frequently laid
aside his hoe and gazed at the flying
wheelman in open-mouthed wonder.
The boy finally got the bicycle fever,
and one day offered Mr. Bassett a cow
for his wheel. The offer was accepted
and the exchange made.
The next day the verdant youth in
itiated himself into the mysteries of
learning to ride the bike. Temporary
success emboldening the young man.
caused him to grow reckless while
showing off before the neighbors. He
finally lost control of the bike, and with
a blood-curdling yell went over a
twenty-foot embankment. The bike
was completely demolished and the boy
went home in a dilapidated condition.
The next day he appeared at Mr. Bas
sett's house with the remains of the
wheel carefully nailed up in a box. De
positing his burden on the ground he
said "he guessed he'd take back his
cow." Mr. Bassett told him he was a
bad guesser. Failing to get the cow and
realizing that the bicycle was perma
nently disabled, the boy wandered sad
ly home, declaring that life had lost its
charms. —Pittsburg Press.
