At noon to-day dark clouds began to roll up in the northern horizon, and an hour later, without warning, a storm descended upon the town, accompanied by a funions gale and drenching rain. The fury of the storm did not last over a quarter of an hour, but it did considerable mischief. Several tents at the camp were blown down and those that remained standing were filled with dust, which few in clouds before the rain fell. Everything not well sheltered was soaked with rain and a good deal of discomfort resulted, The rain also marred somewhat the beauty of town decorations. The weather to-night is clearing and the signal station predicts a fine day for to-morrow's parade.

La boring men, who are to act as esi Italiest and foot the parade expenses, object to the increase and made arrangements with non union bands.

"I should never have en gaged in a contest again if Corbett had not made the crack at me," said the ex-Pitts burg boxer last night. "Corbett got as mad as a hatter because 1 expressed the opinion in print that he would not be in the hunt with Sullivan. He offered to stop me in four rounds at the Manhattan club or in Madison Square Garden. The only thing I can do, having gained the consent of the olub directors, is to acept Corbhett's proposition.

LONDON, Aug. 22.-The Times correspon dent at Calcutta, says: "The apparent supineness of the government on the silver question is causing dissatisfaction throughl out the country.

Railroads in Texas Have Been Do. ing a Business That Lost Money. And the State Railroad Commls ion Tried to Out Their Rates Lower. relief Is Secured by the Companies in the United States Court-A Sweep Ing Deeislon. NEw YoBa, Ane. 22.-A dispatch from Dallas, Toex., say United States Judge Mc Cormick, at Dallas, in his decision in the case of the railroads against the Texas railroad commissioners, decided every point in favor of the railroad companies, and granted an injunction against the commies sioners restraining them from establishing proposed rates. The rates proposed by the commission, the railroads claimed, would have compelled them to run the roads at serious loss. The decree reviews Texas railroad build ing and the agitation leading to the adop tion of a constitutional amendment author izing the commission. Judge McCormick then says there is no suchcollusion between the complaining trust campanies and rail roads shown as would prejudice the rights of the trust companies to file bills. More over the trust companies have an equitable interest in the fair earnings of the rail roads, as well as actual ownership, in the possession of securities of the roads which are being injured and threatened with de struction by the railroad commission's acts. They show further that the railroads are coerced by the commission and the direct ors cannot exercise their judgment and discharge their duties as they should and would but for said coercion. The court then goes on to show that the railroads .were built under extreme hard ship, opening up a new country, and having to wait a long time for returns, also that the character of the soil is such as to render it extremely difficult to construct and main tain sound roads, and the proper cost of the plants as they exist to-day exceeds the amount of their bonded indebtedness. The earnings of these roads, says the court, have not been diverted to impro!,er uses and none of these railroads except the Gulf, Colorada & Santa Fe, has paid dividends. Four of these roads have had to submit to the process of reorganization under foreclosure proceedings, two of them a second time. The Gulf road, which has so far escaped this ordeal, now owes a floating debt of upwards of three millions of dol lars. With inconsiderable exceptions, the judge says, the commis~son has reduced every tariff which it touched. Under com mission rates the Texse & Pacific derives only enough revenue to pay operating ex penses and the cost of repairs, and five per cent on $17.000 per mile. This road,.under such tariff, has lost over $212,000 in seven months. The St. Louis & Southwestern has not earned necessary operating ex penses, and has been compelled to borrow money to meet a deficit in operating ex penses and interest on mortgage obliga tions. The loss to the International & Great Northern, in the few months it has been out of the hands of the receiver, shows greater ratio than $200,000 per annum. The lose to the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe from these commission tariffs aggregate $300,000, The question of reasonableness of rates is eminently a question for judicial investi gation. Under the commission's ruling the roads are deprived of the lawiul use of property without due process of law and in violation of the constitution of the United States, and insofar as they are deprived, while other pe eons are permitted to re ceive profits on their invested capital, the companies are deprived of equal protection of law. Pointing to the fact that the inter state commerce commission did not possess or claim power to enforce rates fixed by it except through a court of highest juriadico tion,the court said that this commission would not meet the exigency of the hour if the reasonableness of its rates could be in quired into before being enforced. In conclusion Judge McCormick says: "It clearly appears to me that every pro vision of the law which tends to force compliance with the rates of the commis sion, whether they be reasonrble or not, is invalid." Orders were therefore issued re straining the commission from enforcing or trying to enforce any tariffs heretofore issued, or from issuing any more tariffs, and enjoining all persons, corporations or individuals fiom suing the railroad com pany under the tariffs of the commission heretofore issued, or hereafter to be issued, for any overcharge or penalty arising under the commission law, and enjoining the railroads from keeping in effect tariffs heretofore issued, or putting into effect tariffs hereafter to be issued. The case was appealed to the United States supreme court. MARYSVILLE POSTOFFICE. Mrs. Mary Luok Has Resigned-Candi dates for the Place. WASHINGTON. Aug. 22. -[Special.]-Mrs. Mary A. Lusk. postmistress at Marysville, Mont., has resigned. The candidates for the place are C. A. Matthews, John B. Con rad and Moses Dering.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 22.-freasury officials state that the department has a balance of fifty millions, and the revenue, notwith standing the loss of sixty millions on sugar, is increasing at the rate of one million a mouth from customs alone. This rate of increase has been going on since the first of maroh. The increase for internal revenue for the year closed July l,was three millions over the year before, and this year there will be an increase of six millions over the year just closed. It is estimated that the custom revenues this year will produce a surplus of fifteen millions over the expendi tures. Secretary Foster is not at all appro hbensve that the treasury department will experience any trouble in the matter of the shipment of gold during the present year. The secretary believes things safe with the larg amount of gold the gov ernment absolutely owns, viz: $110t000,000. "Nothing has been done looking to the prevention of shipments of gold from this country." said the secretary, "and nothing will be done." laltl a Million Itad P'ap.r.

TO BREAK Uli TIlE UNION. zfrfrts nelng Made by Gen. Curtis In the Cmur d'Alene Country, WAnwasa, Idaho, Aug. 22.-All saloons at this place have been closed and no one al lowed on the streets after 11 p. m. Saloon keepers being strong sympathizers with the miners their places have been closed to pre vent a secret meeting of the union. The Poorman and Tiger mines are worked by union men who held their meetings and tendered support to those who were looked out. To break up the union Gen. Curtle ordered the shutdown of both mines, and will not allow union men to be employed at any point in the country, In order to hold troops here and guard against a possible outbreak as a consequence of these shut downs the order directing three companies to proceed to Cruar d'Alene City with pris. oners has been suspended and the troops will remain here till after Sept. 1. Law abiding citizens are beginning to chafe under the restrictions of martial law, and some are declaring that Curtis is abusing the power conferred upon him. He has released the town marshal of Wardner and placed deputy sheriffs in fall control. '1 Le transfer of prisoners to Cruaur d'Alene City was declared by Crosswaite, public examiner of the department of justice, to be illegal until the men are indicted before a United States grand jury. GOOD FOOD) AND PURE WATER.- D Abundance of tile Necessaries Provided for Peter Breen and others. WAsIrNOTOr, Aug. 2.,-Last week the de partment of justice at the request of a prominent knight of labor, officially re quested Examiner Crosswaite to make in vestigation of the charges that a prisoner taken during the time of the mining trou bles in the Curur d'Alene region in Idaho, was badly treated. To-day the department received the following telegrarn from the examiner, dated Wallace, Idaho: "I care fully examined the prisoners and jailor here, giving the prisoners opportunity to make complaints, and find absolutely no grounds for the reports of improper treat ment at this time. Thee is an rabndance of good food and pure water. Considering the circumstances the treatment of the prisoners is most liberal and they are com fortable, and complaints purporting to come from prisoners either relate to condi tions which might have existed, when large numbers were first arrested, or else they originated in the minds of syrmpa thizers who did not confine themselves to facts. Have written." NO FURTHER TROUBLE. Grim Visaged War no Longer Rampant in Tennessee. COAL CaEER, Tenn., Aug. 22,-All excite ment seems to have suddenly subsided and the opinion is becoming general that there will be no further trouble, although rumors can be heard on all sides which, when traced up, turn out to be false. A calm view of the situation makes it apparent that there is little to be done except to maintain the peace that is established and punish the men who outraged all law and order. The names of the killed are John H. Neill, George Milles, Jake Whitson, a colored man, shot at Briceville, and a colored man named Geo. Robbins, who was killed by a t ain. Labor Commie sioner and Mine Inspector For I was re leased this atternaon on $10,000 bonds. Battery A was reinforced to-day by two three-inch rifles and a supply of ammuni tion. Scouting parties have been sent out as usual all day long and the number of prisoners was increased by several new cap tures, but they reveort nothing startling as having happened, and as having seen no evidence of warlike nature. The troops are all in good spirits and evidently relish an opportunity for real work, even though it is not actual war. Convicts Must Work the Mines. NAsrvrrL.E,, Tenn., Aug. 22.-Information was received by the governor to the effect that quiet prevails at Coal Creek, but the troops will be held in readiness for any move on the part of the miners. The Tennessee Coal & Iron railroad company officials held a consultation to-day with the state board of prison inspectors. The result of the conference was not oiven out. Enough was stated by the officials and lessees to warrant the statement that the convicts will be returned speedily to the mines and the state will protect them in so doing. Requisition for War Material. WAsBINOTON, Aug. 22.-The war depart ment has honored the requisition of the governor of Tennessee for a small quantity of artillery and ammunition and it will he shipped from the Rock Island arsenal to the place desired by the state. As to Chinese Certtflcates. CHICAGO, Aug. 22.-Sam Moy, prominent in the Chinese colony here, surprised the government officials this afternoon by in forming them that orders had been re ceorived from China not to obey the law requiring the Chinese to take out certifi cates of residence. He said the government of China sent out one of its officials to this country to fight the law in the courts. The minister was in Chicago ten days and informed him and others of the wishes of the Chinepe government. The rep resentative from the celestial empire has gone to Washington to secure the best legal talent to be had, and the law will be tested in the United States sup enoe court. A test case will be made on the arrest of some Chinamen in Detroit, where they are held on the charge of violation of the exclusion law passed by the present congress. In this way the exclusion act and the provision compelling Chinamen to take out certificates of residence would be tested together. Until a decision he said no Chinaman in Chicago would take out a certificate. Mormon Recruits in Engiland. LONDoN, Aug. 22.-Considerable anxiety prevails in religious circles because of the work being carried on here by Mormon missionaries. They have been esoecially active in North London and, it is said, have gained quite a number of converts to their faith. A petition was recently presented the Loudon county council, asking it to stop the Mo2rmon propoganda. The conncil considered the petition and finally refused to stop the outdoor meetings. A Btaptist minister in 1iornsey district, in denouncing the perve'sionu to his flock, stated that IBrighan Yonug, Jr.. who is an European apostle of the Morrnon chuich, sends 100 converts to Utah annually. 'The greater part of these converts were English. The Lieutenant's Two Victories. Nxw YOrrK. Aug. _2.-A Berlin cable to a morning paper says: "'Lieut.

The Latter Is Able, Honest, Has the Courage of His Con victions. The Platform Is All Right on the lMain Issue, Whleh Is Reform of the Tariff. Nxw Yort, Aug, 22.-The German-Ameri. can Cleveland union has asnoed an address signed by Carl Sehurz, Oswald Ottendor for, William Steinway, Henry Villard, Louis Wandmnller and Gustav N. Sohwab. which, after praising G, over Cleveland and giving the reqsons, urges all German Americans to cast their ballots for the democratic candidates. Being translated, the address reads, in part, as follows: "Impressed with the un usual imiortance of the coming presi dential election, we regard it our duty to give you our reasons for believing that the welfare of our adopted country requires the election of Grover Cleveland and that he deserves the votes of the naturalized Ger mane. Abovu all, we believe he is a thoroughly honest man, which fact even his most bitter enimies do not dare dispute. Among his most marked characteristics are his abundant courage and adherence to his convictions. As bearer of executive power he invariably subordinated party in terest to the common welfare. We need only refer to the firmness with which, not withstanding the strong tendency of his party in the south and far west to bring about the unlimited coinage of silver, he unhesitatingly warned them of the dangers liable from such policy. His innate sense of duty cannot be better proven than by the fact that during his presidential administration, as well as dur ing his second candidacy, he never was a favorite with machine politicians, whose aim was their own welfare. It was owing to his intelligence and courage that tariff reform was inscribed on the banner under which his whole party was united and led to glorious victory. There is no doubt that by following the same banner it will win another victory at the end of the present campaign. "Therefore, we earnestly beseech our fel low citizens to aid us in securing the eleo tion of Grover Cleveland. We do not hbe itate to make this appeal to our country men because the platform of the demo cratic party is entirely satisfactory in re gard to the main question." CARTER HANDICAPPED. His Orders Are Disregarded and Conuter manded. WAsmNoTO,. Aug. 22.-Reports reached Washington from New York to-day which indicate that all is not smooth sailing at the republican headquarters in Gotham. Those who have closely watched the work of the campaign managers says that Chair man Carter is not being supported by his colleagues. Double-headed campaign or ders, it is said, are daily sent out from the national committee rooms. Chairman Car ter gives directions and Secretary McComas is said to contradict them with others. Some of the committee claim that, while Carter is very shrewd, he fails to grasp the work in its entirety. One trouble that now besets the commit tee is to get anything like reliable reports from tue western and northwestern states that are placed in the doubtful column. The committee seems unable to get in touch with the people and the leaders in those states. It is now said that the re publican managers have arrived at the con clusion that New York and Connecticut must" be carried in order to offset almost certain losses in the west. The probable strength of the third party vote in the west is what is worrying the republican man agers. A rumor that the renublican national committee is insisting that government clerks in Waqbinaton shall contribute to the campaign fund. is denied. However, a few weeks ago fifty circulars were put in circulation, requesting such contributions, but their circulation was subsequently stopped. Now uneasy clerks are calling at the republican headquarte a here and offer ing campaign donations. Capt. McKee. who is in charge, has refused to accept these, claiming no authority to do so. It can be said, however, that hints are always dropped that willing contributions will not be refused at the New York headquarters, so what money is kiven by the government employes is sent there.
