Mrs. Russell Sage has been overwhelmed with beg ging letters from all over the United States and from foreign countries. Some of them show by their post marks they were mailed as soon as the news of Mr. Sage's death was made public. Mrs. Sage today, at her home at Lawrence, L. I., authorized the state ment that she will pay no attention to begping letters. She does not read them, beyond such perusal as is nec essary to establish their character. None of them will be answered, and it will lie useless to irclose stamps. More than 7i0 letters asking Mrs. Satre for aid reached her at her Law rence cottage this week, and several hundred more were addressed to the Russell Sage office. The clerks at the o.Tice threw these letters into the waste basket. Mrs. Sage never sees them. 3IPLAN BIG BRYAN BOOM fPubllshors' Press New York .Aug. 4. Norman E.

TRADE IS BEING RUINED Interstate Commerce Commission Will Meet in Chicago Next Month and Hill Will Have His Say. (Publishers' Press Chicago, Aug. 4. John Hill. Jr., has reopened his war on the owners of public warehouses in Chicago with the declaration that the grain trade of the country is in the clutches of a ' trust," Mr. Hill says that ho now has in his possession evidence that will show the existence of an illegal combination among the warehouse men and that he intends to fight the "trust" to its death. The Interstate commerce commis sion will meet here next month and Mr. Hill says he expects to see an in vestigation of the so-called elevator trusts started at that time. Meantime he is pressing his charge before the States Attorney He.il y, intending to show that the Armour Elevator Company is violating an in junction issued by the late .Iudse Tuley eight years ago prohibiting the owners of public elevators from stor ing grain belonging to themselves in their own houses. A shary decline in prices of oats last month, in consequence of which some of the smaller shippers and dealers lost large sums of money is said to have been directly due to the alleged evil practices of some of the laree elevator concerns, which man ipulated receipts and the inspection in such a way as to give the impres sion that the market was threatened with a flood of new oats when such was not the case. HE WON BRIDE BY MAIL Texas Minister Marries Indiana Young Woman he Never Saw Until Wedding Day. Wabash. Ind., Aug. 4 .(Spl.) The Rev.

Holt, former minister of the gospel, whose queer actions and apparent disregard for all decency, caused his arrest a few days aso. will likely bo an inmate of the Eastern Hospital for the Insane, though there has arisen some question as to wheth er Holt can legally be accepted by Dr. S. E. Smith because of his non residence in Richmond or any other part of this hospital district. Though it is asserted that Holt "claims" Richmond as his home, this must be established, it is asserted, in some legal manner. However, it was apparent to the authorities that Holt was not a proper person to be given liberty and he himself had admitted to Judge Converse that there were times when the state tf his mind was such that he was not accountable for his actions. Yesterday a commission of lunacy acted on the case and de clared the former minister to be a fit subject for treatment in an insane hospital. The commission was com posed of Drs. C. S. Bond. F. II. Dun ham and A. L. Bramkamp and Justice Abbott. Evidence Was Complete. Evidence brought before the rora misslon was similar to that presented to Judge Converse in the city court a few weeks ago. Application for Holt's admission to Easthaven has formally been made by County Clerk Haas and Richmond is given as the man's residence. In the meantime, Holt will be held in jail. Should it be held that he cannot be admitted to the Eastern Indiana Hospital it is not plain what disposition can be made of the man. It is believed that Holt has been something of a wanderer for several years past and therefore it might bo legally claimed that Rich mond was his residence In the ab sence of evidence to show that he had any other residence. THE CASE WAS CONTINUED The injunction proceedings brought by the Eaton Telephone Company against the Richmond Home Tele phone Company to prevent the. latter from severing relations with the plain tiff, was called in the Wayne Circuit Court yesterday ami continued until August 14. The trouble between the companies is likely to be amicably set tled In the meantime and the proceed ings dropped. RESTRAINING ORDER OUT Judp;e Fox has issued a temporary restraining order against Bonilee Kel ly, to prevnt her from making dispo sition of any property transferred to her by her husband, John Kelly. The latter brought suit to have her title in the property revoked by the court. On August 15 the case will be called. MUCH PRESSURE BROUGHT It Is said that the friends of Prof. R. L. Sackett are bringing much pres sure to bear to have him named as a member of the Board of Public Works His fitness for the place Is being en phacised. Many Calls for Tents. The Chautauqua management is still filling the calls for tents which are being made dally by prospective campers.
