AARRI BROTHERS 119-121 .INorth Main Street. H hIS C URiY'S G000. Ex.King Milain Formally Renounoes Al4l gal and Constitutional - Rig1hts in Servia. Thc LasM' SVidently Well tid of a Utnl Who Was a Greal SOandal Narrow lSeape Troe the Vengeance of a Womaon jo orrow-The Good Queen Nantae. BaaiNon, Nov. 18.-~ - -King Milan has signed a enoaclation of all his legal and constitutional rights Sin.Servia. The ex A .ink came into on usual prominence by reason of his divorce from. Natalie, daugh tar of the late ius sian Colonel Kesoheko. Milan is the grandson of Ephraim Oberno. ....c 1 vitch, brother of Ix-xI.OG maIN. Miloes, and second cou sin of Prince Michael. He was proclaimed prince of Servia in July 1860, the govern ment of the country being entrusted, dui ing his minority, to as council of regenoy. The regency terminated with the corona tion of Prince Milan IV. After peace was concluded with Turkey, and when Russel made war upon Turkey. Milan issued a proclamation on Dec. 14, 1877, making it known that the bervian army was immediately to cross the Turk ish frontier, which they 'did the next day. After the close of the war the independence et Servia was recognised and its boundaries defined by the treaty of Ber lin, July 18, 1878. iervia was proclaimed a kingdom under King Milan L on Marph 6, 1882. On Oct. 28 in that year as the king and queen were entering the cathedral of Belgrade, Madame Markovitch, widow of Lt.-Col. Markovitch, who had been shot for a dynastic conspiracy five years previously, fired at his majesty, missing him and wounding a female onlooker. Since the separation between Milan and Natalie the ox-king has attracted but little attention. Some months ago Natalie was the cause of a deperate fight between the soldiery, who were ordered to escort her from Servia, and the students at the capital who were deter mined to prevent her removal, but were forced to yield. THE CHANCES OF WAR. Much Improved by the Famine Prevatlins in Runssl. VinVsA, NovI. 16-At the meeting of the. budget committee today Count Kalnoky assured the committee that the emneror's speech, referred to by Tageblatt, ought to cause no uneasiness; that, although the emperor drew attention to the contradio tion between preparations for war and talk of peace, the government hoped the problem would find peaceful solution. Re ferring to Saturday's panic, he said the public did not take, a reasonable view of the situation. One serious word exag gerated fo serve'private ends, was sufficient to evolve an unwarranted panic. He an nounced that the new commercial treaties would go into operation Feb. 1, 1892. The Tageblatt today,notwithstanding the denials of its story published Saturday to the ef - feet that the emperor had declared the European situation critical, insists that its report was strictly correct. This report was at the bottom of the panic on the bourse Saturday. Holders of stocks. and bonds, fearing the emperor's words pre saged war, made a wild rush to sell, and the result was a decline not equaled in many years. The Abend Post, having re ceived instructions, from the prime minis ter, issued a statement declaring that there is no truth in the Tageblatt's story. The Tageblatt says the language of the emperor was drawn forth upon the occasion of an audience granted to the president of a Polish club. It reiterates that in the conversation that then took place the emperor usned words attributed to him by the Tageblatt on Saturday which, in sub stance, were that "the famine which now prevails in Russia has greatly increased the chances of war." So confident is the Tageblatt in the relia bility and truthfulness of the person who furnished the information which had such serious results that it has asked the public prosecutor to-make close and searching in vestigation as to the truth of the article. Kalnoky announced that the zollverein treaties would be discussed by the Austrian and Hungatian delegations co-jointly. RESISTED THE OFFICERS. Chinamen on a Steamer Stand Off the Chlef of Police and His Men. VANconvEa, B.

CONTItADICTOY NEWS. Corneerning Affairs in iBrazil--llow the lteports Come. LoNOoN, Nov. 10,--News from Brazil con tinues to be of the most conflicting charac ter. Offlcinl dispatches from Rto de Jan eiro assert with unequivocal positiveness that the country is absolutely tranquil, while telegrams from Buenos Ayres and Santiago report Brazil torn with dis.os sion and secession. The actual facts will probably not be known until mail advices are received. An offioial censorship pre vents dispatches not approved by the gov ernment veaching Europe direct, and it is not kpown how such dispatches reach Buenos Ayies and Chile. The latest official advice from Brazil states that the trouble in Rio Grande do Bul is purely local, and that the government of that state is now in the hands of a provisional junta, It is in ferred from this that the authorities at Rio regard the junta in sympathy with the cen tral government, but this theory is contra ditoted by dispatches rrom Santiago to'the Times. These declare that the provisional junta has taken absolute ountrol, and es sort that it has an army of 80,000 men armed with rifles. It Is shoit of artillery mnd has but one war vessel, a river monitor lightly armed. A Discouraging Anniversary.

Constitutionality Soon to Be Passed Upon by the Su. preme Court. *aaee of theif ewspaper Men Con Svot. le4 Pu~ptst Bhig Lottery Adverti enta. The Internal Revonne. Commissioner MakLis HIs Ananal Report-The Tphree Big Items Discussed. WAnmuaoro, Nov. 16.--Argument was be. gauein the United States supreme court to day in the anti-lottery cases in which the colstitution of the recent anti-lottery law Sf.volved.. !'he suits are those brought y the United Sltates against John N. lia pife, publisher of .the Mobile ItRegister, and Geo. W. Dupree, publisher of the New Or leans States, for violation of the law pro hibiting the Sending through the mail of newspapers containing lottery advertise ments. Counsel had already submitted briefs giving the line of argument and, these hive been published in the press. lhe first question came up when Carter, a ,well-known New York lawyer, asked the pleasure of the court as to the time.to be allowed for argument. The court suggested three hours for the lottery people and two ;for the government. This was not satisfac ttry to Carter, who wanted five hours, and Attorney General Miller said the United States and the people had as much interest in the case as the other side and thought one side should not have more time than the other,. though he probably would not ant more than two hours. I he court di rected the argument to proceed and it mould, ift necessary, extend the time. Hannie Saylor, of Mobile, then opened ar gument for liopier. The supryple court to-day granted the applicationof a writ.of certirorai to com pel the circuit court for the district em bracing the Patifio coast to certify to this chart the apes of a Chinese importer, Lan w. Bew,. of Portland, Ore., who was re fused, admission to the United States after a5Lief visit to China. The court, in an ointioht bylChief Justice Fuller, says it will bhe that the oase-involves the construe tion. of the Chinese restriction act and treaties between the United .States and China. The Chinese restriction act, as amended,. made the identification of Chinese other than laborers, who were en tirely excluded, in a mode provided, the able evidenee of their right to enter the United States. Manifestly the question in volved as to how the noact should be con utrUed, in view of. the treaties, is one of gravity and importance and involves a matter of ilterngtional concern. The one,' it hol has no connection t the upon`to exclade . ew, 4or the reason that in that case the man was a laborer and not a merchant. The court is therefore of opin ion that sufficient grounds were shown for awrit of certiorari. Production of Each, Taxes Paid and Bounty, Awarded.

Commissioner Thompson, of the civil service commission, this even. ing said the supreme court of the United States, in the case of Curtis, held that the law forbidding government employee to so licit or receive from each other money for political purposes was constitutional, but the decision rendered to-day goes much further and holds that all solicitations for political purposes within government build ings are unlawful.

Action en lesolutiona Sent to th6 K. of L by the W. C, T. U. Towmo, 0., Nov, 16,-nl the Knights of Labor general assembly to-day the first business was consideration of the resolu-. tions presented by the World's W. C. T. U. and National W C. . T.U, Those demand ing equal pay for equal work for women, woman suffrage and the same standard of purity for men and women, were at once agreed to. The resolution demanding the closing of the World's fair on Sundays was rejected, the knights declaring in favor of having the fair open tundays for the edu cation of the masses, provided that no one employed at the fair shall work more than six days per wiek. The assembly declined to indorse a resolution for the prevention of the sale of liquor on the World's fair grounds. The last resolution asked the Indorsement of a petition to prohibit the sale of alcohol, opium and other narcotics, and to raise the standard of law everywhere to that of Christian morale. This was re ferred to a committee.

FROM WAYBACK. some of These Delegates Come to Talk of Polities. IDIANrAPous, Nov. 113.-Every known organization of American farmers holds some sort of meeting here this week, One of the most interesting questtope is. shall all interests of these concerns be merged into one? Hundreds of delegates are al ready in the city. Cangressman Jerry Simpson, who arrived to-day, speaks most favorably of the alliance outlook. Presi dent Terrell, of the confederated industrial organizations. (comprising F. M. B. A. Alliance, Citizens' alliance, K. of L. and National alliance), said of the objects of of the meeting: "'the purpose is to take no tion toward the unification of all labor interests; to adopt a platform that all in terests in the confederation can stand on, so by upited action they may procure the legislation they demand." The question of ofmbining with other organizations is not to be taken up until the Februaty meeting. The hardest political fight will be made on the endorsement of the People's party by the alliance, the consensus of opinion of delegates already here being that the alli ance will not endorse the third party, but 'will endorse that party whose platform most closely proclaims alliance principles. President Polk said that while the alli ance opposed Cleveland it also opposed Blaine, Harrison. Hill and any other man who did not advocate alliance principles. "By the way," he added, "no doubt you have heard of the great combination of btanford and Polk for the head of the third party ticket. Why, Stanford would not get one alliance vote for constable. All these articles circulated urging Stanford for the presidency on the third party ticket are paid boomers for him. His circulation bhill was a pernicious measure to degrade the proposed nurrenoy from the very start." The Temppranae Cause. sIi o. 10,-At tOb thit4 dev'.. se sion of the National and World's Woman's Christian Temperance union the morning meeting was occupied in disoussing the question what each department of the edu cational group was doing to secure the for mation of total abstinence habits and sen timent and for the final overthrow of the drink system. Mrs. E. H. Ingalls reported on the work against narcotics. One of the dealers told her that he sold more cigar ettes to girls than to boys. The work this year will look toward the passage of a na tional law forbidding the manufacture of cigarettes. Opium trade is to be forbidden if possible. Mrs. Mary F. Lovett reviewed the work of the department of mercy. As one result of her report a rising vote con demning the wearing of any birds or any parts of birds unless obtained without pain was moved, but the motion did not prevail and was referred to the committee on reso lotions. It was announced that b begin. ning had been made for a temperance temr ple in Boston. In the afternoon Mrs. Potter Palmer, president of the board of lady managers of lady managers of the World's fair, made a brief address, asking the co-operation of women all over the country in mading the women's exhibit at the fair something they might feel proud of, and further announced that there would be no separate women's department, but that their exhibit would be displayed with those of men. This evening there was a banquet at Music hall, largely attended. Infant Salvation Admitted. NEW YonRK, Nov. 10.-The New York pros bytery devoted.to-day to consideration of the report of the committee on revision, Dr. Briggs and friends being on hand. The professor succeeded in securing one or two important amendments to the report. In the course of the discussion he offered a substitute, which was adopted, as follows: "Infants dying in infancy, and other per sons incapable of being called by the min istry of the word, are regenerated and saved by Christ, through the spirit which work eth when and where and how he pleaseth. Also, other persons who have not been called by the ministry of the word.". Soo. tion four was amended to read, "Those persons who, are called by the ministry of the word and yet resist the Holy Spirit, and never truly come to Christ, cannot be saved, neither is there any salvation in any other way than by Christ. the truth and the spirit." Further consideration was postponed for a week. Hils Q(uletus Made. CIESYENNE, Nov. lI.-George A. Beard, cashier of the suspended Cheyenne National bank sent a bullet into his brain this morn ing. lHe was in consultation the greater part of yesterday with Examiner Grilfith and the attorney of the bank.

Not respond ing when called this morning his room was forced open and he was found with a bullet wound behind the right ear, dead.' There is now beginning to exist fear about the bank's condition, which, however, appears solvent. Collins, the president, owes $95T, 000. Beard endorsed this. Mnlister Porter at IlinIe. New Yoas, Nov. 1(,-G-ov. Porter, minis ter to Italy, arrived by steamer Normandia to-day on a sixty day leave of absence.

THEY MAY PULL THROUGH The Men Shot by.Jew Jake at Great Falls Still Living at a Late Hour. Three Times a Mob Surrounded the Jail and Demanded the Prisoner. B.t They Lacked Leaders and Made as Cffort to Take Him From the O.aoers. OUrAT FALLs. Nov. 1.I.-.8pecial.1 The condition of City Marshal Trea* and Joe Lessard was unchanged at a late hour and the pbyst. oianslars unable to give any positive ias formation regarding their chances for life. Probing for bullets was unsuccessful; A r report that Joe Lessard was dying created the wildest excitement on the streete this afternoon, but investigation proved it to be unfounded. Lessard's condition is considered worse than Treat's, owing to the location of .the wound and the difficulty of attending it. Should initammation or blood poisoning set in neither ocn recover. An IXN.vr.Nxxw rep resentative visited Jew Jake in the county jail this afternoon and had a talk with him. He expressed great sorrow for the affair, and particularly so for the wound ing of innocent parties. He claims that he was drunk and Treat's insults drove him crazy with anger. He suffered great pain from the wound in his thigh, which includes a broken bone. It is not probable that hie will ever have the use of that leg again. After the seooling last night there was tre mendous excitement, and when it was known that was in the county jail a howl ing mob soon surrounded that struothre, yelling "Hang him!" and other expresetons of similar import. But the mob had no leader and accomplished nothing but sore throats and bad colds, No one made a pacifying speech or used any efforts to dispef.e the crowd. This visit was made between 11 and 12 o'clock. About two a. m. it was repeated, but with like results, as was also a third one along toward morning. Sheriff Hamilton swore in several extra deputies and massed all the available omacw officers at the jail and took every possible precaution to prevent further unlawful acts. In these efforts he was entirely sucage(ipl and the good name of the city is h Iio danger of being tarnished by a reqord of mob violence.
