An Assertion That the Grain Will Polsbly Reacoh Two Dol lars a Bushel. As Atgr eant to Peeve That Owiag to the Short auropean Crop Aneariea Will Bel1 Its Surplus. s.r PA.m,Sept. 14.--"Facts Worth Money," is the heading of a new circular in relation to the wheat question, now being sent out by the "State," the alliance organ of this city. It arges farmers to hold back their wheat, as better prices awai tthem in the next few weeks. The assertion is made that wheat will be $1.50 soon, and possibly $2, a review of the European shortage being made the basics of this claim. George _M. Miller, editor of the State, in speaking this new address to the farmers, says: "We still believe a large amount of grain will be held back, that the rush is pacstieally over. Oar advioes from thousands of correspond ents is to this effect. These early sales were by these distressed for money and those not connected with the alliance." The circular says: The farmer needs honest advisers; he has now too many of the other kind. It sharply rape the elevator men and millers, grain dealers and speun lators, and those newspaper men who go to them for their information about the condi tion of the market and lay it as a valua ble truth before the public. "Two months ago all these advisers pre dicted low prices on account of the enor mous crops in the United States, and ad vised the farmers to sell as soon as they had a chance. They admit now," says the circular, "that the question has been thor oughly ventilated, that an immense short age exists in Enrope which no surplus of our country can offset, but still they try to tempt the farmers into sacrificing their crops by different tsioks. The press. for in stance, is overflowing with articles congrat ulating the farmers on the immense crop. These articles are suspicious, for," says the cifoular, "we hope few newspaper men are so ignorant they don't know a large crop is of itself no ground for congratulation. It is the farm value of the crop, and this does not depend on its size. The newspapers now," it says, "enlighten the farmers that Europe will need alli they have raised and more, but that they cannot buy it at exorbi tant rates." The circular states that the figures of the Vienna congress show that Europe has raised 258,000,000 bushels of wheat and 490, 000.000 of rye less than last year. Last year it consumed all its own wheat and50.000,000 bushels of reserves, 100,000,000 bushels from America, all that.other countries could sup ply,and all its rre crop. This year it will have from America 210,000,000 bushels, if the ex treme figures of our crop are taken. It will have an agregate shortage of 798,000,000 bushels in its own crop, and 50,000,000 bush els less to be drawn from the reserve. In short it will have 220,000,000 bushels from America to make up the total deficiency of 798,000,000 bushels, and must consequently eat 678,000,000 bushels less grain, it being admitted, says the circular, that the short age in European crops is by far the worst ever known in history. It would be natural for the Europeans to expect high prices. The so-called "advisers" of the American farmer tell him $1 per bushel in Chicago is about the highest Europeans will stand and that they would rather euA other things than pay more for whisest. The circular says this assertion is ridicuan lous. The average price for wheat for the last thirty-two years in England, on a gold basiS, was $1.41 per bushel, wnich corre sponded with $1.21 in Chicago. During the eight highest years of that period the aver agewas $1.77%, equal to $1.57% in Chicago. During 1867-'68 the average was $1.95, and prices went as high as $2.21, equal to more than $2 in Chicago. These high prices did not, so far as the recollection of the writer goes, change the diet of Europeans to any great extent. The shortage in Europe be ing four times as great as the American surplus, says the circular, there is no doubt the price of wheat will reach the highest figure ever known before this year is up, and will exceed it by far before trje new crops comes in. The talk that $1 for wheat in Chicago is high under the present circumstances is, it says, absolutely ridicu lous. Of course, if the farmers should in sist on offering more wheat than there is money to buy, they could keep prices down a little, but the warning came in good sea son to the spring wheat farmers, and they will hold back better than the specula tors expected. There never was any good reason for having wheat price so low as it is today. Those who are forced by absolute necessity to sell, or who are too idiotic to understand the situation, are not so numerous that their action can keep down prices any length of time, and so soon as the fools are out of the market. the intelligent farthere will get prices adequate to the circumstan 00S." The Antis' Convention. ST. LotusR, Mo., Sept. 14.-Messrs. MeAl. lister and Hall, of the national executive committee of the farmers' alliance, decided this afternoon that the convention of antia to begin tomorrow shall be held with open doors.

Tom Allen's Strange Story Becomes Known After HIs Death. Brox CITY, Isa., Sept. 14.-Tom Allen, a well-known character, was killed to-day by a mule kicking him in the head. With in a few hours after he was dead a strange story came to light. It was told by an ac quaintance who knew Allen before the war. His real name was Frazee. He (Allen) was in the Union army. With a few compan ions he one day left the camp. As they did not return the provost marshal started for them. They were drunk and fired on the marshal. The marshal was killed. Then the deserters jumped into a stream and in swimming it, one Tom Allen, who was in the party, was drowned. When Frnzee came out of the stream and observed that one of his companions was drowned he took the name of the drowned man, as he had done the shooting and was known. The change of hisname aided him in escaping. He was nover captured. He lived 15 years in M]latana under his own name.. Then 15yeexa ago he came here and became Tom Allen, and to-day his wife and lse~ tras heard the story for the first time. He was known in sporting circles, having been a saloon keeper, prize fighter, but withal, was well thounht of. TRACK AND DIAMOND. Flyers at Clncinnati, Gravesend and Gar field Park-The clnbs.

It Is Sxty Miles From the Mouth of the Dardanelles and a Vantage Point. The Move H8a Caused Exeltemeot All Over Europe-An English Omier In Canada Talks War. owsxnaTrrnopmL, Sept. 14.-A detachment of blue jackets aqd marines from a British iron-clad, accompanied by a battery of light field pieces and several gatling guons, landed yesterday morning at Sigri, on the island of Mitylene, formally occupying that place in the name of the queen of Eugland. There is a good harbor at Sigri and it is supposed the British naval officers at Mity lane intend to fortify the island to make it a coaling station and rendezvous for the British Mediterranean fleets. Sigri is on the coast of Mitylene and is about sixty miles from the mouth of the Dardanelles. Under ordinary circumstances little or no credence would have been placed in this alarming rumor, but coupled with the story broadly circulated Saturday that Great Britain, in view of Bussia's practical coer cion of Turkey regarding the passage through the Dardanelles of vessels belong ing to her volunteer fleet, intended to oo cupy the island of Tenedos, at the entrance to Hellespont or the Dardanelles, more seri ous atidntion is paid to this annexation. The island Mitylene would form a most advantageous position from which Great Britain could control the waters of Hel lespont. London Excilted. LiwOnox. Sept. 14.-As soon as the report of the occupation of Mitylene by a British force was received here there was consider able excitement. Up to 5:80 p. m. there was no official utterance upon the subject. Reporters and correspondents by the score have called at the foreign office and at the admiralty, but the officials on duty declined to confirm the report that Great Britain had taken action in the Dardanelles ques tion. A dispatch received from Constanti nople, stating the occupation of the island of Mitylene was an accomplished fact, has found echo on all the continental bourses to-day. The general opinion seems to be that if the British forces had not landed in the neighborhood of the Dardanelles.,neither the foreign office nor the admiralty would have refused to deny the rumor. This step is calculated to awaken the gravest appre hension in financial and diplomatic circles. The St. James Gazette this evening says the startling news concerning the island of Mitylene obviously possesses political sig nificance of the first importance. Continu ing, it adds that the island of Mitylene has a position of considerable strategic in portanoe; although possessing little in the way of fortifications. An intimation of the intention of the British government to occupy the island giving a point of vantage near the Dardau elles was frst heard of in inner diplomatic circles of Vienna and Berlin soon after Sir William White's audience with the sultan on Friday last. Nothing about it, how ever, appeared in the European newspapers until the Constantinople cable startled the bourses and the public to-day. The reports were at first treated as incredible, and are still held to be doubtful. In the ab sence of foreign office confirmation the reports, and until the details of the ac tion of the British war-ships are known the full significance of the movement cannot be revealed. It can be stated on high au thority however, that Sir William White asked the sultan to assent to the British oc cupation of some point within striking dis tance of the straits, and offering good har borage for a fleet. Tenedos and Besika bay, where the fleet rendezvoused from 1876 to 1878, have been surveyed recently, and were reported to the admiralty ad versely. The offer made to the sultan revived the request which the British government made in 1877 prior to the acquisition of Cyprus, to purchase an island near the Dardanelles. This project was long the subject of negotiations and was abandoned on the signing of the Anglo Turkish convention in June, 1879. The seizing of bigri, therefore, cannot have oc curred without the connivance of the sul tan. The official announcemeqt was issued in Constantinople yesterday that a com plate entente had been arranged between Sir William White and the sultan, but the terms of restored harmony were not mentioned. The intimation that the seiz ure of the island would be followed by fortification is modified by a Berlin report tonight that Lord Salisbury does not con template a permanent occupation of the island, but has designed the movement rather as a demonstration to checkmate the Franco-Russian game. The movement ac centuates the diplomatic crisis. Admiral lioskins, in command of the British Mediterranean squadron, is about to be replaced by Admiral Tyrol, who hoisted his flag in 1857 on the Nile, and who sailed from Portsmouth for Gibralter or Friday to take over the command.

Sr. PAvL, Sept. 14.-[Special.]-Seere tary Redfield W. Proctor arrived in St. ,Paul Saturday morning at 7:80 o'clock, and left for Yellowstone park at nine o'clock the same day. "The object of my trip," he said, "is to examine the posts in this de partment and the workings of the new In dian enlistment idea in which I am deeily interested. If it succeeds it will go far towards solving the Indian problem. There are two regiments now being organized, one cavalry and one infantry. The cavalry un der Capt. Anderson, at Fort Coster, seems to be meeting with the most popularity among the Indians. The infantry regi ment is filling up rapidly, and there seems every probability that the natives will take kindly to the blue uniform. I am going to Yellowstone, Custer and Assinaboine, and return by way of Helena." "Is it intended to make the enlistment of Indians general when their capability as soldiers has been demonstrated?" "Well, they will be enlisted as fast as they apply, but in Indian regiments. The aim is to make them fully responsible as aolC iers of the United States army to all the army regulations. They will draw the same rations and get the same treatment as the white soldiers. They will assume at the aad- time all his responsibilities to discipline." DEATH FROM OPIUM. A Lynching of Chinamen Mtay Follow a Spaniard's Spree. FOREST HILL, Cal., Sept. 14.-A Spaniard named Nunas wound up a protracted spree yesterday by smoking opium in a Chinese den. He was taken dangerously ill and the Chinese, fearing the wrath of the citizens, if his body was found in their place, car ried the dying man to a pond and were about to throw him in when discovered and stopped. The Chinese were placed in jail, which was attacked by a mob of citi zens. The mob was repulsed by theofficers. The jail is strongly guarded, but the people are still determined to lynch the Chinese and further trouble is feared. Nunas died shortly after being rescued. Consumption Bacilli In Railroad Cars. Scientific men have often declared that railroad oars aid in spreading pulmonary diseases by means of the bacilli coming from consumptive passengers, which lodge in the dust of the oars. According to the experiments of Dr. W. Prausnity, a Ger man physician, this danger, however, is not so great as many would have us be lieve. A few months ago the doctor, with the aid of a patent instrument, collected large quantities of dust fromt the floors, walls, and cushions of the cars which had been used by consumptives on the journey from Berlin to Italy. This dust was in jected under the skins of seventeen guinea pigs. The animals were killed ten weeks later. Twelve of them, upon examination, were found to be entirely healthy, while only five showed slight symptoms of tuber culosis. As confinement undoubtedly af fected the lungs of the animale, the doctor comes to the conclusion that the railroad cars, if properly cleaned at the end of each journey, will play no part in spreading the disease of consumption.

The jail has been overcrowded for some time, so much so that four prisoners have to occupy a cell. Those who escaped, James Thurston, Jas. MoQuillan and Mike Brown, occupied a cell with George Leslie, a sick prisoner. On account of Leslie's sickness the cell door was left open, and when the turnkey looked the cage the pris oners managed by means of a wire to throw the lock, and when everything was quiet pushed back the bar and walked out. They dug a small hole in the twelve-inch brick wail in the rear of the jail and at 6 o'clock gained the open air. Their escape was discovered immediately and they were at once followed.

BUTTE, Sept. 14.-[Special.]--The exami nation of the men accused of the Penrose murder was resumed to-day before Judges MoMurphy and Herbert. The same course as pursued last week was taken up by the defense, the attempt to prove an alibi. Owen Dolan, Thomas Duheme, James Kin ney and W. H. Eddy, the latter president of the Miners' union, were examined. All testified about the same as the other wit nesses who preceded them last week, and no new testimony was brought out. The four swore that they had seen them until midnight, and some declared that they had seen them until almost one o'clock. In fact their testimony was only a repetition of that of Breen and others who testified last week as to the whereabouts of the accused on the night of the murder. COST TWO HUNDRED. Attorney Lewis, at Great Falls, Strikes a Brother Lawyer. GREAT FALLS, Sept. 14.-ESpecial.1-A. legal battle somewhat out of the ordinary took place in the district court room this morning shortly after the opening of court. Attorneys Peter M. Baum and J. P. Lewis were conversing in a low voice regarding some accusations that had been hurled back and forth between them during the trial of a case on Saturday, swhen Baum gave Lewis the lie. Quick as a flash the latter jumped up and commenced an assault upon Mr. Baum, which he did not offer to resent in the least. Half a dozen blows were rained upon Baum's head and face. When the combatants were separated Judge Benton immediately caused the arrest of Lewis and imposed a fine of $200 upon him for contempt of court. He also ordered that the same should be paid before six o'clock this evening, and in the event of failure to so pey that Lewis be imprisoned for fifty days. Thd fine was paid.

Naw Yong, Sept. 14.-A Herald 5spel5a cablegram from Valparaiso, Sept. 14, qp. Ghat Balmaceda has escaped from tbi ilutohes of his enemies, and is now safe on bhe high seas under the protection of the United States flag. All the time the soldiers of the junta were guarding the passes of the Andes to prevent his getting into Argentine tepublic, and the police of the new pro visional government were searchinm the monasteries in and around Bantiago for the fugitive ex-president, he was in hiding in this city. Here he was apt to escape, ialmaceda chose his refuge wisely,' for he was enabled to throw himself upon the mercy of Admiral Brown, of the United States flagship San Francisco, and beg to be saved from the revenge he feared from his foes. Admiral Brown did what other foreign admirals would have done under similar cirooumstanes. He stepped in pos sibly to save a human life. In the name of humanity'he consented to afford Balmaseda the shelter of his ship and the protection of the stars and stripes. To effect the eX president's escape it was decided to have lBalmaceda disguise himself as a drunken United States sailor, clothing being sent ashore in a market boat last night by order of Admiral Brown. It was smuggled by one of Belmaceds's faithful adherents into the house where the ex-president was in hiding. He carefully donned it, and after aclose inspection of his new and strange attire, to see there was nothing about the get-up which would arouse suspi cion, he stoleout by a rear entrance into the street. The nightfall favored his dis guise, and he had studied his part so well he feigned the drunken tar to perfection. On his way toward the water front he rolled by many men who would have been delight ed to have had a chance to seize and turn him over to the police authorities. In time he reached a spot in the harbor arranged upon. There he found a boat awaiting him. It was manned by sturdy United States man-of-wars men. Balma ceda, still maintaining his dlsgulse, made a final drunken stumble and fell into the boat. It pushed off at once and in a short time the ex-president, all signs of inebriety at an end, climbed swiftly up the ropes and was saved. He went at once to one of the cabins of the San Francisco and did not again show him self above. This part of the vessel was rei served solely for its prominent guest. No body was allowed to visit the cabin. The officers of the San Francisco were quettionod about the matter, but resolutely refused to discuss it. The San Francisco left Valparaeso in the evening for Callao. Thence it will sail for California. Balmaceda may elect to land at Callao, where many of his lead ing partisans have already been taken by the foreign ships on board which they sought refuge after the fall of Valparaiso. AdmirAl Brown's action will undoubtedly, for a time at least, increase the bitter feel ing here toward the United States govern ment. although the admirals of other for eign vessels have taken prominent Balmna cedists aboard.
