HELENA VOL,XXXII.-NO 147. HELENA, MONTANA. MONDAY MORNING,, JUNE 29, 1i91. PRICE FIVE CBNTS A VENICE AT THE FAIBR, Plans for a Casino and Pier 1,000 Feet Out Into Lake Michigan. An Interesting Exhibition of Fish and Fisheries To Ae Held. lwo Thouasad (Caslndsi of Staff To Be Ued in the Construction of Mlat Balidlag.' CmrAao, June 28.--One of the novel buildings at the exposition.will be the Cas ino and pier. The easino, which will stand out in the lake 1,100 feet from the shore, is intended to reprbdude Vbnie on a small ecale in lake ?Mlclhigln. The design' of this stractare has been completed, and the aroh itertare is of ooiat of Venetian order. The Casino will b built on piles and obnnected with the shore by a pier eighty feet. wide. The base dimensions of the Casino will be 180 by 400 feet. The building will consist of nine pavilions, two stories in height,and, with the exception of the central one, eighty feet above the surface of the water. The center pavilion will be 180 feet high. There will be communication between the nine pavilions both by gondolas and bridges. Completely surrounded by water this structure, with its fleet of boats and numerous waterways, is expected to have a decidedly Venetian flavor. Surrounding the central pavilion will run a gallery fifty six feet wide. The pier connecting the Casino with the shore will form a broad promenade. As the west end of the pier will stand the thirteen columnsedesigned by EoSnptor At. Gandens, to represent the thirteen original states. In front of the 9asino will be a harbor for small pleasure craft. At night this harbor will be lighted by incandescent lamps sunk beneath the surface of the water on Sfate. The ma terial of the Casino will be of wood. and the walls will be covered writh staff. A striking combination of high colorings will be effected. The contract for the construction of the pier ana Casind' has been let. One of the most interesting exhibits at the World's Columbian exposition will be that of fish and fisheries. Everything that science has rescued from the depths of the ocean, sea, lake or river will be displayed at the forthcoming fisheries exhibit;-in habitants of deep sea grottos, the coral ani mal-builder of salandsand continents-sea anemones that blossom miles below the surface of the ocean, monstrous devil fish, sharks and other terrors of the deep will be seen, beside the speckle beauties of stream or lake, the plebian catfish, perch and sucker, suggestive of the boyish angler and the shallow stream. Fremocean depths will be brought specimens of subaqueous life so marvelously delicate, and so richly beautiful that the microscope will only reveal, in part, their wondrous beauty and film-like tracery. The methods, too, by which the mysteries of the deep are penetrated, the paraphernalia of the United States fish commisslon, the inventions by which the finny tribe is cultured, the wonderful prog ress made in hse art of fish farming, in addi tion to the implements of commercial fish ing and the latest tackle for analing-all these will be displayed to their fullest ex tent. Thirty thousand tons, or 2,000 carloads, of staff will be used in.the construction of the mlin buildings of the exposition. It has been decided that all of the buildings will be faced with this material. Staff was invented in France about 1876 and first nesed ip the buildings of the Paris exposition id 1878. It is composed chiefly of powdered gypsum, the other constituents be ing alumnia, glycerine and dextrine. These are mixed with water without heat, and cast in molds in any desired shape and allowed to harden. The nat ural color is a murky white, but other colors are produced by. external washes rather than by additional ingredients. To prevent brittleness the material is cast around a coarse cloth, bagging or oakum. The caste are shallow like, and about half an inchithick. They may be in any form in imitation of cut stone, rook, faced stone, moldings or the most delicate designs. For the lower portions of the walls the material is mixed with cement, which makes it hard. Staff is impervious to water, and is a per nanent building material, although its cost is less than one-tenth of that of marble or granite. An Englishman wants to sell a portrait of Columbus to the World's Columbian ex position for $10,000. The portrait, it is claimed, was painted by Chevalier Antonio Moro about 1750 from a miniature of C l ambus painted from life especially for Queen Isabella, and which is still in the possession of the royal family of bpain. The frame of the picture, which was made at the same period the portrait was painted, is an intricate mass of carving and gilding, showing Columbus' coat-of-arms and the implements of maritime warrfare of that time. Illinois has appropriated $800,000 for its exhibit at the exposition. It will erect an immense building costing about $350,000, and endeavor to make the most complete exhibit of any of the states. The state board of agriculture has charge of the mat ter. California will occupy a $100 000 building at the exposition. A prize of .500 for the best plan was offered some time ago, and a number of plans are now under considera tion. A choice will be made within a few dayn. daine will erect a $10.000 building. 40 by 40 feet, two stories high, with a tower. The building will be constructed of different va rieties of Maine granite and covered with Maine slate. A yellow fir tree, measuring 111 feet in length and fifty-four inches in diametor, has already been started towards the World's fair. having been shipped from Seattle a week or more ago. Off for Bering Sea in Company. VicronRA, B. C., June 28.-The British man-of-war Nymobe, Commander Turner, will go direct to Nanimo, where she will meet the United States steamer Mohican in whose company she will proceed to Bering sea. It is expected that the British stoamer Pleaaant and the United 8t0tes steamer Alert will also make the Bering sea crnies in company leaving here Tuesday. During the past week both the Mascot and the Otto, two Victoria schooners, have been quietly fitting out for sealing and both sailed last night for Bering sea. Their captains not having received any official notice of the suspension of sealing, will take chances of securing their share of skins before falling in with the war ships. Indiana Maltreat a Chinaman. TowensTON, Ariz., June 28.-A Chinaman was attacked by five Apaches in the Cin asne monatains, near the line, last Friday. He was shot four times and left for dead.

A GIrl and a Dagger 1taae Life a nWorden to wery Caeseman. New Yox, June 68.-Among the pasen germ who sailed on the Germauta for -eu-nstown last week was a neatly attired young Englishman,' 'whom ladles would have pronounced good-looklag, bad not his clean-haven face bees such a plb~ur of anxiety and fear, If this gentleman reaches Qu4aentown In toto-4hat Is, wito* the puopturea of a stiletto, he will o ider himslf lucky and rely upon the vigilant English "bobby" to protect him hereafter. lint if a handsome brunette, with sharp eyes and a dagger more so, should inter rupt him while enjoying a smokes on dek or a game of cards in the eabin, he will have to acknowledge the situatilon as grace fally as possible and trembligly twait de velopments. The sorely pursued young Englishman ia Henry Caseman, the shadows a d neoro macner who came to this country with Mack's international vaudeville show late lait season. The mysterious wonan is ua known, buat she ht brakesd asetman from San Franoisco to New York, inolOdina stop at diferent western oitles, conoluding by oornering her victim tl the Hotel Arno, at Twenty-eighth street and Broadway, late 'Tnldatyntght. Thers wee a general sour. rying ox dusky porters and Agile bellboys, and what happened they still guar esse oaurely asthe facts of a hotel suielde. Caseman himself told the story to some friends as they patrolled Broadway with him like a bodyguard until the Germanic steamed away from New York, with the Englishman on board. Ceseman is well known in England and on the continent by the patrons of the vaudeville houses andhas an extensive acquaintance in this country. "At San rPFraneisco," he said, "I was stopped one night by a stylish and expen sively dressed woman while returning to my room from the theater. Her actions were so queer that I thought I had been ao costed by one of your confidence women, and I refused to spend any more time with her than I could help. I was then stormed by notes from this woman, who never signed a name and always requested to see me on important business. Finally one night I had to go home escorted by two policemen." Here the excited Britisher produced a elipping from a Blan Francisco paper in corroboration of this. The article an nounced that the queer actions of a heavily veiled woman who had occupied a box at the Windsor theater and afterward ap peared at the stage door, calling loudly for Caseman and flourishing a dg.gor, had made it necessary for the gentleman to have an escort home that night. "To make a long story short," continued 1 Caseman, "I curtailed my engarement in 'Frisco and went to Butte, Mont. The same thing happened and I went to Seattle. This woman appeared at one of my perform ances there and I went to Chicago to play at the Eden Muses there. I thought I had escaped her until I noticed her in a front seat one night toward the latter part of my 1 engagement. I sent for the police, but they noald not arrest the woman unless I made charge, and as I did not know her name or I exactly of what to accuse her, I had to be driven to the hotel a short distance away, in a cab. She was at the hotel early in the morning, but the manager refused her en trance. I manage to evade her after that. I arrived here Tuesday morning. 1 started I to my room Tuesday night about 11:80 o'clock, never thinking of the girl, when she appeared in the hallway. 5he said nothing and I did not realize it was she until she slashed my coat with a knife. I dodged another blow and criedl, but before any one came she left the hotel, walking quietly out of the office and attracting no attention from any one. Who she is and why she should hunt me, I have no idea. I never saw her before either on this side or the other side of the water, and I am as in nocent of any offense against her as you are." The Englishman's story, as far as his cry ing for help and appearing in the office of the hotel With his coat slashed and the dis appearance of the young lady dressed in black and heavily veiled just afterward is I concerned, was vouched for by the hotel clerk and bell boys. But of further par tioulara they declared themselves ignorant, If the young lady in black is on board.the SGermanic what will happen is problemat ioal. ST. PAUL'S ENOCH ARDEN. He Leaves His Wife and Returning Finds Her Harried to Another. ST. PAUL, June 28.-St. raul has an Enoch Arden. His name is David A. bouoie. His wife's name is Mrs. Angeline Mathews. The story is told in an action for divorce instituted by Mrs. Mathews yesterday. She states that her maiden name was Angeline Morand and that she and Soouie were mar ried in Faribault in 1880. They had two children, one of whom, a girl ten years old, is living, the other one being dead. Soon after their marriage they came to St. Paul. and in 1883. the complaint alleges that Boacie deserted her. He disappeared and she never heard anything more of him until last April, when he turned up in this city again. Three years after his desertion Mrs. Boucie, that then was, through an attorney named McKenney, begun a suit for divorce on the grounds of desertion. It never was tried, as McKen ney, the complaint alleges, told her that her husband was dead, and that it was use leas to get a divorce from a dead man. With this assuranee of Soucle's death, Mrs. Sou cie became Mrs. Mathews, and for five years has lived happily as the wife of Sam nel A. Mathews. Mrs. Mathews now asks the court to dissolve any tie there may be existing between her and Sonoie, and also to allow her the custody of her little daughter. M00NSHINERS CAPTURED.

The Earth Trembled. SAN FnsrIomco, June 28.-A alight shook of earthquake was felt here at three o'olook thif morning. No damage Is reported. COLLUSION IS CHARGED, Farmer and Post Trader of Tongue River Agenoy to Be Invesa tigated. Violation of the Rules of the Interior Department Is Charged. A Steamship Company Co-operates With the United States Government to Shut Oat Undeslrable Immigrants. W*' iow, June 28.-There is trouble brfeibgo0r the ftamer and post trader at the T, river agency. It has been re porte(: the Indian office, and the report is beintvestigatsd as to its authority, thatO. Harrison, the agency farmer. has been in collusion with Indian Trader Walters to make contracts with the govern ment against the rules and regulations of the interior department which forbids offi cials from making or entering into con tracts. Recently a contract was awarded to Walters to furnish oats for the Tongue river agency. The charge is that Harrison is to furnish the oats and that he paid Walters $10 for signing the contract for him. These charges have not been proven yet, but they are believed hi the Indian office. Commissioner Morgan intends to have all agencies investigated to see whether there is any crookedness at any point. TO CUT OFF UNDE5IRABLEK A Steamship Company Co-Operates With the Government. WAsurmarox, June 28.-The new immigra tion bureau has received a copy of the in structions issued by the Hamburg American Steamship company to its European agents, which prohibit the sale of passage tickets for America to certain specified classes of undesirable persons. This is a new de parture on the part of steamship companies which has been'iaugurated by this line. If the other tranS-Atlantic companies shall adopt it there will be very little left for the commissioner of immigration to recom mend to be enacted at the next congress. The rule adopted by the company is as sim ple as it is practical. Its list of persons to whom tickets may not be sold inoludes not only the vicious criminal, pauper and diseased classes designated in the United States law, as well as contract laborers, but also all known an archists and those socialistic extremists who place their views and designs above the considerations and restraints of law and order. Any agent selling a ticket to a person belonging to one of these classes in circumstances where a reasonable inqdiry would have established the facts in the case will be charged with the price of the unde sirable immigrant's return ticket. The burden of proof as to his having male. such reasonable inquiry will rest upon the agent, and as every neglect will entail a penalty in the nature of a fine he may be relied on to use due diligence in ascertaining the facts before giving passage to a doubtful appli oant. ON THE ANXIOUS BEACH. Posteafice Departmnent Employes Expect a Shaking Up July 1. WASlNGoTos, June 28-The postoffi ce de partment is to be reorganized on July 1, and the clerks, messengers, watchmen, chiefs of divisions and charwomen are trembling in anticipation of dire disaster. It is certain that quite a number of men will be dismissed, especially among the chiefs and principal clerks, who have fallen into a rut and imagine that they own the department., The creation of a new office by a recent act of congress, that of fourth assistant postmaster-general, which takes effeet July 1, causes the present con dition of affairs. Several important divi sions of the department will be detached from their present superior offices and transferred to the jurisdiction of the fourth assistant. It is probable that an appoint ment division will be. retained by the first assistant. This will carry with it the bond division, free delivery and correspondence division. The star routes will remain under the sec ond assistant, and the stamped envelopes and postal cards as well as the flnance di visions remain under the third asstetant. The fourth assistant will have the dead letter offico, the salary and allowance division, the foreign mails and other odds and ends which have here tofore gone along in a haphazard man ner. All these changes will necessarily cause a shaking up of the entire depart ment. The clerks have been writing bushels of letters:to their congressmen and senators to have them retained in positions, and the postmaster general has been deluged with correspondence in consequence thereof. The entire clerical force of the department is on tenterhooks; the women are in hys terics and tears, while the men are as nerv I oeu and soared as so many sheep. Added to the Free List. WAsHINOTON, June 28.-Consul McClain, at Nasena, West Indies, reports that the following articles have been added to the free list of imlnortations into that colony: tallow, rosin, caustic soda, potash, palmert crude petroleum and metal roofing. On all kerolune oil used as fuel in the working of steam engines a drawback of 90 per cent. will be allowed on proof of such consump tion. Daugerous to Go on Shore. WASRINoTON, June 28.-The Chillan lega tion to-day received the following telegram: "Santiago, June 28.-The chief of Chilian insurgents, the ex-captain of the Chilian navy, George Montt, has notified the Amer ican admiral at Iquique that the crews of American vessels ought not to go on shore as they would run risk of being assaulted by the revolutionary mob." The Biggest Farm on Earth. NEW YouK, June 28.-A company com posed of New York and southern capitalists has just been organized with a capital of $1,000,000 for cultivating a farm of 113,000 acres in Florida. This will be the largest farm In the world, and uponl it enough could be raised to supply the city of New York with food. 'I he nameof the company is the San lebastian Laud, Improvement, Sugar and Investment company. The farm lies between the indian. San Sebastian and tt. Johns rivers. It has muck soil similar to that in the valley of the Nile. The com pany does not propose to raise cereals or garden staff, but sugarcano and cocoanuts, especially cocoanuts. This will be in the nature of an experiment, as cooanuts are not indigenous to Florida. Foul Play Suspected. New Yoax, June 28.-A young English man named Charles Warner, who arrived here on the 28d from Devonshire, England, is missing. He is known to have hap $10, 000 in his possession. Foul play is sus pected. MICHIGAN FOR BLAINE. It the Plumed Knight Is a Candida4 Alger Will Support Him. CaOoAoo, June 28.-4enator Stookbridgel of Michigan, now in Chicago, speaking of Michigan's candidate for president, said that Blaine pas so far ahead in the ra;o that the others could hardly be seen. "If Blaine wants the nomination," he sai, "Michigan will give him her solid vote. He will soaeopt it, too. When the natioi demands Blaine, as it will, tle eminegt statesmand.ennot refuse." "What if he doesn't accept?" "Then there will be sume fun. Indiana will lead out with Harrison, Illinois with .allom, Michigan with Alger and Wisconsin will have the Busk banner. You have fodr starters now and there is no telling what will happen in a jear. Alger is a strong man and stands next to Blaine, not only in Michigan, but in the west and in some states in the far east. The farmers will support Uncle Jerry Rusk, and it will be surprising it he doesn't capture every vole of the Farmer's Alliance and other similar omanizations?" O"Could Mr. Blaine be elected?" "Most assuredly. Michigan would give him 20.000 majority -at least. He is the most popular statesman in America. Dur ing the trouble that followed the New Or leans lynching there was little exoitmept in Washington. 'There will be no trouble,' demooratio senators used to say, 'for Mr. Blaine is handling the ease.'" "Could Blaine get Michigan's support in the convention if General Alger is a candi date?" "That is impossible. General Alger is one of Blaine's most ardent supporters and will work for him. But if Blaine refuses the nomination, then Alger will launch his boat and we will stick to him to the end. That is how Michigan stands on the prefi dential election." BLOODSHED AT THE MINES. Miners at Franklin Attack the Negro Camp and Four len Are Killed. FIrKLrmN, Wash., June 28.-The white strikers, angered at the action of the Ore gon improvement company in taking ne groes to the New Castle coal mines started to clean out the negro camp to-night. In the fight four persons were killed. The deputy sheriff who has been at the seepe for the past four weeks catled for militia and two companies left on a special train. The threat of the company to place pe groes in its mihes in place of the strikiig white men was carried out this morning. I The company sent a special train to New Castle with eighty negroes from the Frai k lin mine. The strikers were all asleep when thenegroUs arrived,and off their guard. At Gilman the strikers are maintaining an armed organization and drill daily. The Seattle Coal and Supply company will rn doubtedly take in a force of men in a few days and start up their mines. Serious trouble seems almost inevitable. IMPRISONED BY ARGENTINESi A British Uaptaln Forced to Act as a Sol dtiler in Buenos Ayres. BAvrrxior, June 28.-Capt. Kenneth Pritchard, of the British steamer Tangier, from Buenos Ayres, had a remarkable expe rience there. He arrived at that port jhst after the revolution, when trouble again broke'out. The captain was captured by s~'lnrs and led at the point of the bayonet i to the.arsenal, where he wag given a Win ,cheater and compelled to join the warlike I crowd. Without much complaint he be gan popping away at every man who paseed within range of the arsenal. He was kept at work with his rifle for three hours, when he was relieved and placed on picket guard. An opportunity presented itself and Capt. Pritchard slipped around a wall and es caped. He had gone but a few yards when he heard som gral:eshot whistle by him, and upon lookipg around he saw two guns being used at the head of the street to ~eep it clear. Capt. Pritchard dropped into a three-foot gutter and there remained with the water streaming over him for about an i hour, when the firing ceased. It was all Over a Widow. NEw YoRx. June 28.-Darwin Meserole. son of General Meserole, who last night shot and killed Theo. Larbig, was to-day committed to Raymond street jail. irs. Comstock, in whose house the shooting oc cuarred, was also committed as a witniess. Larbig was a traveling salesman from Providence, R. I., where he left a wife and family, and when in this city lived with Mrs. Comstock, who is a widow, in a flat which he had fitted up for her. Young Meserole rented a part of the flat from D1rs. Comstoek. Yesterday be took her to Coney Island where they met Larbig. On return ing home, Larbig began to abuse UMrs. Comstock, who ran to Meserole for proeco tion. A general fight ensued which ended by Meserole shooting Larbig dead. Died in the Pulpit. SARATOGA June, 28.-Rev. Wm. M. Ogden, rector of the Church of the Holy Crosi at Warrensburgh, Warren company, fell dead in the pulpit while preaching this morning. Paraguayan Ideas of Work. A French gentleman who has recently or ganized a colony called Villa Sane, about twenty leaguesnorthestof Villa Concepoton, on land belonging to theParaguayo-Agen tine Land company, told me that in thti be ginning, when he went to survey the ground and to ascertain its exact whereabouts--al ways a troublesome business in these ouon tries, where there is as yet no topographioal survey-he had the greatest diflienulty ii in ducing half a dozen Paraguayans to accom pany him. They told him that he would never find the land, that he would be ena ble to cross the river Aquidaban, and, in short, that his was a wild-goose chase. Iow ever when they arrived at the river, and the irenchman simply jumped in and swam across, their amour propre was toneued, and they swam after him. Thea half-dozen Paraguayane have remained at tached to the colony, but they have lost the esteem of their countrymen. When, ýfter the exploring expedition, our Frenchaiuu started from Villa Concepolon with his sixty colonists and his train of bullock carts and impedimenta, the loafers of the town said to the few Paraguayans who no companled himi and were helping in the loading: "What! Are youn as big fools as those Europeans, to work like that?"--The odore Child in Harper's Magazine. The Actors' Colony. It is a strange viesicitude of fate which has overtaken New Itochelle. As its name would indicate, the town was founded by religious refugees from Franoe--Hugenots driven out after the revocation of the edict of Nantes. Even yet the descendant( of the Frenchmen and Walloons, who dame here for conscience's sake, cling to the old town and to their faith in Calvin. But the liugenot blood isn't what shows on the surface. For some occult reason, perhaps the mysterious attraction of op posites New Rochelle has been pithlied upon bly the artists and actors for thoir summer homes. When the theaters co se, or when the weather is fine, whether the theaters are closed or not the town is full of gay soubrettes and Shiu-faced comic opera clowns, and stars in "legitimate" holding somewhat aloof. Francis Wil. son's home at Pelham, with its third story theater, is only a little way off. Frederic Remington heads a little colonly of artists who live there, and Mrs. Jennie June Oruly, of the Home Maker, expects to l'uild a home there for present and future eoon panoy. ANXIETY FOR LOSTONE. The Health of the Grand Old s Man in a Precarious State. Fears That He May Not I Hold Out Until the Elections. The Italian Chamber of Deputies has a Dig Rumpus at Its Last Slttlng of the Session. LoxnoN, June 28.-Renewed anxiety is felt regarding the health of Gladstone. His recovery has not been complete. He has bad occasional relapses, being apparently hearty one day and broken down the next. It is feared that he has seen his best parlia mentary service, and there is a disposition on the part of the liberal leaders to relieve him as much as possible. They appreciate the loss that his death would be to the party, tending as it would to dissolve the ties that hold the popular mass in combine tign with the middle and upper class of lib erals, and perhaps leading to a dissolution of the party as at present constituted. It is expected that Mr. Gladstone will have to seek quiet for some time to come, if heis to be in form for the fatiguing de mands of the approaching general election. Indeed, it is said that the condition of Mr. Gladstone's health is watched with sinister interest by the tory leaders, one of whom remarked that Mr. Gladstone might not live to take part in the next parliamentary contest. The St. James Gazette says Gladstone's physicians fear the veteran statesman may not recover from the effects of the attack of influenza from which he suffered in the spring. He was left rather weak by it. EXCITEMENT IN THE CHAMBER. The Italian Deputies Narrowly Miss Comrn ing to Blows. RoME, June 28.-There was another scene of wild disorder in the chamber of deputies when the foreign policy of the government came up for consideration. After a few preliminary skirmishes, Admiral Brin, ex minister of marine, who was speaking yes terday when this sitting had been suspend ed on account of the tumult in the chamber, rose to proceed with the foreign interpella tion, but he was met with such strong radi cal protests that he was only able to repeat the text of the interpellation. Premier 1 Rudini then arose and declared in emphatic terms that the government would adhere firmly and stolidly to the dreibhund, adding that Italy and Europe might rest assured these alliances would be maintained, and a European peace would long be preserved. With this the whole house, with the excep t tion of the extreme left rose and - cheered long and heartily. After Sfuarther bickeringa some deprecatory allu - sions made by Martino excited the anger of Sthe radicals, who sprang from their seats, t gesticulrtnmg violently and drowning the voice of the speaker with their shouts. t Cavallette made a rash at Martino and would have struck him but for the inter i ference of friends, who parted the two men. Every member stood shouting, disputing apd menacing in the wildest manner. Finally the president, finding himself una ble to pacify the members, abruptly suns p pended the sitting. When the sitting re a srned Oavalette, Signor Bovio, and the I president of the chamber appealed for con cord and all three were enthusiastically ap plauded by the house. Finally parliament was prorogued for the summer. In the midst of the confusion to-day Signor Sonning threw a bundle of papers in t Signor Cavalotti'sface and the latter rushed t to attack Sonning, when friends interfered. y A general scuffle then took place. Only the ministers remained in their seats. The whole house seemed.to be transformed into an arena crowded with combatants. In the * scuffle several deputies were more or less 0 badly injured. To-day's scene is unprece dented in the history of the chamber of h deputies. FREE SUGAR FOR CANADA. The Raw Article to Be Admitted to the Dominion Without Duty. OTTAWA, June 28.-The leading features of the budget are references to reciprocity issues and the announcement of the aboli tion of the duty on raw sugar, by which act the treasury loses over $3,000,000 duties. The budget states that during the last year the exports to the United States had fallen off over $1,000,000, but that exports to Groat Britain, Germany, etc., had in creased correspondingly. While bank after bank has gone down in the United States in the recent stringency Canadian institutions had stood without harm. This the premier artributes to Canada's good banking laws. The government was prepared to meet the government of the United States and en deavor to agree upon equitable terms to re move the causes now preventing freedom of trade between Canada and the United States. The net debt of the dominion is $239,570. 000. Several important tariff changes would be made; the abolition of import duty on sugar, and increased taxation on malt and distilled spirits and tobacco. The duty on refined sugar would not be taken off, but would be changed from 73( per cent to five per cent of value, equal to .08 of a cent per pound. Sir Richard Cartwright claims that the government is not taking the duty off sugar because it was in the interest of the people, but because the United States had done so. Moreau Sizes Up Matters. PAIts, June 2.'.-Auguste Moreau, in an article in the coming number of the Revue des Deux Mondes will say: "The McKinley tariff, which was to shut the Ameriean market against European manufactuIrs, has so far done harm only as it rdcots consumers." Moreau advocates the abro gation of the French decree against Ameri can pork, and conmments on the United States minister's efforts to obtain the re einding of the measure. NEITUER AIE NOR MAN. An African Dwarf That Must Be the "MIssing Link." LONDON. June 28.-The wonderful ac counts given by ryenry M. Stanley of the dwarf tribes he had met with in Equatorial Africa has aroused a great deal of public cu-. riosity.
