'TWAS A CLEVER THIEF Who Took It, for no Theory of the Theft Appears to Ba a Tenable One. Paris, July 81. The police of France are in-estigating what ia probably one of the most remaikable robberies on rec ord, and it is bel eved that the police forces of the United States will be asked, if they hava not already been so re quested, to take a hand in the investi gation. In some unaccc untable manner a cask of goid from New York, valued at $50,uuO, has been stolen while in transit from Havre to Paris. The French line steamship, La Tou raine, Captain Sa.itelli, left New York on July 21st lor Havre, with forty casks of American gold on board, valued at $ 2,000,0' V and consigned to various con cerns, t he arrived here July 29. The forty casks of (troll are believed to have been safoly landed at Havre, and they ar also said to have been placed, tu ple te, on board 'he train running be tween Havre and this city. lint when the precious casts were counted upon arrival here, there were only thirty-nine of them; on csis-k, contain:ng &50,00'J in American gold, had" by some means dis appeared. The disappearance of the cask of gold has given rise to a number of police theories, the strongest being that the gold was followed from New York by expert th'eves, who patiently awaited their chance to a bstract one of the casks. The cask of cold must have weighed nearly 200 pounds aud even a very strong man could pat have carried such a load alone for any very great distance. Among, the theories being investi gated is one which may turn out to be correct. It is that the thief or thieves hid himself or themselves in the car in which the gold was subsequently placed, and that while on their way to Paris, one cask of gold was thrown out of the train and the robbers jumped after it. GOLD SHIFHiKH EXCITED. . Th New York Coniioor Can't Account For the liobbery. New YoitK, Jily 31. The report of the robbery of the cask of gold shipped from this city by the steamer La Tou faino, has caused considerable excite ment among gold shippers here. There were three consignments of gold by La Touraine on her latest trip. " Two con signments of twenty casks each, the value of which was $2,000,000, were ship ped by Lazard Freres of this city, and were consigned to Lazard Frerea & Co. of Paris. One i-.d iitional shipment of ten casks was made by Messrs. Heidel baek, Eickleheiner 5c Co., to the Credit Lyonais and was valued at $500,000. No tbporv'a.i U how the robbery was committed could be advanced by the steamship agents. The specie, they say, is invariably placed in the string room, which id real ly an enormous safe. DRIVEN TO CRIME. .Miner at Crlppl. Creek, Rather Than Be Arretted, lleoonie Handitti. , Denver, Col., July 31. One result of the late warlike strike at Cripple Creek is the organization of a band of robbers who have terror zed the country in the immediate neighborhood, and the out break of trouble- more bloody than the rgeent strike is among the possibilities. When it became known that Sheriff Bowers was to be permitted to serve warrants and make arrests, those leaders who felt that their actions would be pun ished with heavy penalties fled the camp. A party of them numbering ten or hf teen organize 1 themselves into a band, and ever since havo demanded suste nance from the surrounding ranchmen. They are mounted ou stolen horses and make raids, seising cattle, ppultrv, horses, auvthing that will serve their purposes. Last Sunday th"y rode into the little town of Victor, demanded what they wanted and then boasted that no one in Victor ould stop thern. Dr. J. Wiley Coliins was the only man who had the courage to defy them." Having no firs arms, he attempted to borrow a gun, lut fear prevented any one from complying with his request and he waj obliged to digest his indigna tion. So serious have the raids become that a viffilance committee is being organ ized to drive thi robbers away or exter minate th. -v. It is also said that Sheriff Bowers is iv?t.nizing a posse of deputv sheriffs to r , oceed against them. War rants for every member of the gan have boon issued for acta conirniued dur ing the strike.

Washington, July 31. The increas ing importance of tue militia for quell ing international disturbances and its potentinl strength in case of threatening war, has led General Curtis of New Yrork, who is an enthusiast on military matters, to embody his plans for a na tional military organization in a bilL The bill has received the sanction of the house committee on miiitia, and, al though probably it will not secure a hear ing this seaon, may be called up next session. General Curtis proposes that the militia shall consist of every able-bodied male citizen between the ages of IS and 4.1, the organization to be known as the national guard of the states, und the un organized as the reserve militia. The organization of the former would be made to conform as closely as possible to that of the regular army. The national guard, according to the plan, could be called to action by the presi dent or by an act of congress,, while only an act of congress could call out the reserve militia, tho president having power to call upon the governors of states for the nt-eded forces of the guard in case of invasion or dan ger of invasion from foreign foe3, Indian uprisings, or rebellion agaaist the auth ority of the government, specifying ia his call the period of servic e required with the limitation of nine tnonths. The reaervo guard or militia, when in service, wouid be subject to the same rules and articles of war as tho regular troops of the United Statea and would be entitled to the same pay and allowance. For the maintenance of tho militia or ganizations, the plan contemplates an an nual appropriation of $10 , 0 X, to be up portioned among the States and territo ries, and to be disbursed for ordnance and stores, under the direction of the secretary of war, no state being entitled to a share unless it has enlisted and uni formed at least one hundred men for each senator and representative in con greM to which it is entitle L Provisions for annual encampments under the su pervision of oifceers of the regular army are made, and various perrons are ex empted fioin service; officials of the gov ernment, marines and employes of rail roads used in military or postal service, being the principal classes.

Most of the Chinese Are Killed or Drowned. Japanese Knew How to Handle Their Guns. Shanghai, July 31 10 p. m. News has just reached .here of a desperate bat tle between the fleets of China and Ja pan, in which the Chinese were de feated and the Chen-Yuen, the largest battle ship but one in the Chinese ser vice, was sunk, and two other large Chi neso vessels, said to be lirst-class cruis ers, were captured or destroyed. The battle was hotly contested, but the Japanese appear to have haudie 1 their guns, ships and torpedoes with more skill than the Chinese. The Chinese lleet engaged carried nearly a thousand men and a larger num ber of them are reported to have been killed or drowned-. Later dispatches say that few, if any of the Chinese engaged in the battle had escaped. Two German officers, in com mand of the Chen-Yuen, are reported to have met death with tho crew of that vessel.

Tho Chen-Yuen was built for China at the Stettin works; she was a sister ship of the Ting-Yuen and was the most powerful ship in the Chinese navy with the exception of the Ting Yuen. BAD FOH MISSIONARIES. The Vnreat in China Laadi to Serious Disturbances. San Francisco, July 31.

In this instance the American Presby terian church was demolished by the mob and one chr stia i, whether a for eigner or a native hxi not been ascer tained, . has been killed.

Eight Companies Leave Pullman Militia men Threatened With Discharge. Chicago, July 31. Mayor Hopkins wired Governor Altgeld at noon today asking him to recall eight companies of the First regiment I. N. G. This order removes three of the six companies now at Pullmau, and leaves but one company on the Illinois Central tracks, that at Fast Hammond. The . mayor said that he felt satisfied that the three companies left at Pullman could maintain order. The Second regi ment, stationed at the stock yards, will be le.ft there for the present, and the mayor refused to say wnen the remain ing companies at Pullman will be with drawn. The action on the part of the mayor was the result a conference between him. Vice President Wickes of the Pull mau company and Adjutant General Oreuodorlt of the I. N. G. Vice President Wickes did not expect trouble, stating that the company was making no effort to secure new men, and that he expected the old etuplqyes to eventually return to their places. Some comment has been caused by the fact that certain members of the militia have been informed by their employes triat if they did not return home at ouco they could consider themselves dis missed. A morning paper tells the fol lowing story: . A soldier stood on guard at the main gate leading into George Pullman's car factory lor lour hours yesterday morning. The sun was cruelly hot. The man was wholly unprotected from its rays. The sweat poured down his face; he held a heavy . gun until his arms tremoled from nervous exhaustion. But he stood there, patient and uncomplaining, from 0 o'clock until 10. Then he was relieed by a fresh sentry. As the tirst sentry moved away from his post an orderly came up with the coiupauj's mail. He gave the soldier a letter. Opening it tne militiaman read: "To , Private, Company M, First Regiment, Pullman. 111.: We are hiring clerks, not toy soldiers, and unless yon can return to your desk lit the usual time Saturday morn ing your place with us will be for feited. We can no longer afford to allow the interests of which you have charge to suffer by your absence. This is tne second waning we have giveu you, and it is the last. W e saall expect to see you at the time mentioned. Respectfully, " , & Co." The strain of guard duty, the intense heat, and the suock of tnis letter were too much for the sentry. His lips trem bled, his eyes tided, and he fairly broKe into sobs as he spote. "My God, if they lo this," He said, "I am a beggar. My wife will be turned out of the house. I am dependent wholly on my salary, and if that fails I am help less. No man can get another place these hard times." The young man's companions gathered around him and tried to comfort him. Some of them said they would make up a purse for him auouce, and several put themselves down for liberal amounts, considering the small amounts at their command. It is said that a score or more of the militiamen have received similar notices. TO GET M' WILLIAMS. Writ of Habeas Corpus Demanded I'or Him This Afiernoon.

Welch, are Mc AVilliains' attorneys, and City Attorney Tillotson is detailed to present the case of the police.

Breidenthal May Stop the Pay ment of the $8,000 To the Cholera Fund Grabbers by Injunction. MAY RECONSIDER IT. Executive Council Likely Rescind Their Action. to How the Other Two Thousand Dollars Went. The members of the state board of health known as the "Cholera Fund Grabbers" are likely to experience some difficulty in getting hold of the 55,000 the executive council has placejl at their disposal. Chairman Breidenthal, of the Populist state central committee, who yesterday expressed himself as opposed to that kind of a grab, is now talking of enjoin ing the state board of health from using any oT the $3,000. The law passed by the legislature through which this special appropriation of 10,000 was made to be used in keep ing cholera out of Kansas provides that before this money can be drawn from the state treasury the board of health must make an itemized statement of all ex penditures, and the voucner must be ap proved by the governor. An examination of the records in the treasurer's and auditor's offices will show that in using the $2,00 ) of this fund which was squandered to protect us from the cholera in New York last year, the money was drawn on ordinary checks antl not an item was mentioned for which it was used. From the demands of the law on that subject it might bo expected that every item purchased in the ;way of disinfec tants and other expenditures would be recorded w ith the vouchers on which the money was drawn, but not an item is re corded not even the smell of carbolic acid or any other disinfectant liugera about tno records. Chairman Breidenthal now proposes to see that the law is complied with iu every respect if any part of the remain ing $8,000 is used, and if an attempt is made to draw from this fund without fil ing the required itemized statement. The state board of health has already used all but $3 of a special sanitary fund of $500, which was appropriated by the last legislature for that purpose and the record of where it went shows that the largest part of 'it went directly into the pockets of the members of the board of health. Here is where the $497 went: II. D. Hill $20, J. P. Me wart $12.1, L. M. Powell $5.15, Frank Swallow $'JS, L. M. Powell $f3J. P. Daugherty $S, A. J. Anderson $0, J. W. Jenney $11.7.1, .II. A. Dykes $97.60, J. P. Stewart $10, Thos. Kirk Jr. $18.50, E. Swartz $7. Balance of fund on hand $3. All but two ot the persons drawing from this fund are members of the board of health. Dr. L. M. Powell, who is not a member of the board, was paid $61.15 for making analysis as state chemist, and Thos. Kirk Jr., not a member, got $18.00 for other services. State Treasurer Biddle said today that he believed the fund could not lawfully be used for other than the purpose for which it was intended by the legislature, and that was the reason h-e voted "no" and had his protest entered on the record. About tho state house today it was freely stated that the four members of the executive council who voted to allow the board of health to use this fund would now like -to vote the other way and would declare that they never had taken any such ac tion were it not for the fact that Governor Lewelling and State Treas urer Biddle will protect themselves by insisting that the record stand but will allow the other members of the board to vote with them on a reconsideration if they so desire. It is possible that a special session of the executive council may bo called to reconsider this action. CHOLERA AT MARSEILLES. It Is Epidemic There aud Deaths Increase Dallr. Madrid, July 31. The Spanish consjul at Marseilles having telegraphed that cholera is epidemic there, and that the number of deaths daily is very large and that the authorities are concealing the actual situation, the government has ordered stringent precautions to betaken at all Spanish ports on the frontier.'
