London, Aug. li.?* There, is prent nnxiety to learn what happened 8MMN Prince Bismarck and Signor Crispi nt Fritdrieiaruho. It is known that Prince Bismarck is backing np Italy over Massowah, his object in fomenting thc dispute being to isolate France from Italian popular sym? pathy. No serious consequence is possible. The Bulgarian question ls uo nearer solution. The Kaiser and tbe Czar rca.jhcd no agreement npon it Austrian objection ro Russian induenco ls sustained by Lord Salisbury. Nevertheless, i -lief in peace is more assured than ever. Lord Salisbury, in conversation before leaving town, repeated with less guarded emphasis than in his Mansion House speech his belief in pacific results. Though generally pessimistic, he seems on for? eign affairs the leader of the optimists. The rumor grows that Mr. W. II. Smith ls to become a peer nnd make room for n more oratori? cal Leader In the Commons. The story la put about in the interests of Lord Randolph Churchill, but there is no truth in it. Nobody can s:iy what a politician will (io under pressure, but as at present advised. Mr. Smith resents the notion of going upstairs. Ill health alone would cause bis retirement, and his health is now fairly good. I/ord Randolph will have no chance of becoming s Minister sgain until there is a general rearrange? ment of the Ministry. The fund for the defence of Mr. Parnell has been token up enthusiastically, and ls showing greater solidarity between the Irish party and tho Gladstonian populace than ever before in the history of Engl.sh parties. Mr Parnell's friends assert positively Ihat they can trace the origin of tho forged letters. " The Times's" chain pions ore equally positive. Stories es--cially affect ing Mr. Henry Campbell, the former private secretary of Mr. Parnell, and as to the cause of his recent illness, are widely current; but he is ready to swear that he did not writ* thc body of nny one of the Parnell letters. Meanwhile irritation at " Balfourism" is grow? ing. It is to be made almost the sole point of great agitation by the English Home Rule party during the recess. The naval manoeuvres are to result in an en? larged navy. A voto for a good fleet of fast cruisers will be proposed in November, when Othes w('.]v-, will be foreshadowed. The Ministers art* considering whether to fortify the Mersey at great expense. If they make the suggestion the On position will oppose it on the ground that forti? fications invite attacks fn>m hostile fleets, while open towns are practically safe under inter? national law. John Bull is always uneasy about his defensive strength, always inclined to panic, and always hms a fit cf parsimony when the panic is over. Mr. Gladstone, who opposed Lord Palmerston's fortifications nearly thirty years ago, would oppose them again now. Ills views will probably prevent tho Government from an extravagant policy in regard to great works. The praspeots of abolishing- the sugar bountiea to tbe advantage of cane sugar in Europe have distinctly improved during the Inst few days. Pdgium and Franco held out at the. conference li'-ld under the presidency of Baron ele Worms at the Foreign Office, and new proposals were made by Baron de Worms, at first with no hope of agreement. Reference was then made to the re? spective Government's. Huron dc Worms, working diplomacy from Folkes!one, now receives good news and he believes he will win thc case. The point in dispute is the refinement of sugar in bond. The French veto is dependent on Blrrinm's refusal, and the Belgian Government is more accommodating. The conference meets again in a few days and boun? ties which cheapen beet sugar are likely to be finally removed, to thc advantage of the Amer? ican product If tho conference fails, no idea of retaliatory duties will lc entertained, ouch du? ties lieing contrary to the Liberal and Liberal Unionist ideas of Free Trade. The Government with Mr. Goschen nt thc Exchcquet would bc unable to carry them. Richmond Pork bein- refused to the Volun? teers for th-:r annual rifle competition, Cr.nnock Chase is likely to bc chosen. It is accessible to thc whole country by rail, and has a large spBOB not confined by villa residences. A central ar? gnal is likely to be erected close nt hand. But the Metropolitan Volunteers arc against thc new ranges, as being far from towns. If Cannock Chase is rejected, the site for thc National shoot? ing ground will be on Berkshire Downs. Mr. H. D. Traill, author of the " New Imaginary Conversations," ar.d a fine satirist, is likely to succeed Mr. Greenwood on " Tlie St. .James's Cla? rette" if that journal remains in the hands of thc German, Mr. Stoinkopf?not ejuite a settled point. There has been trouble, too, at " The Pull Muli"' and the question whither Mr. Stead is to remain J1- lti!l undecided. He will probably do so. He knows how to make an evening journal interest? ing. Colonel Cournud is sending by hand new pho? nographic records to Mr. Edison. The sensi HfBBBMB and endurance under tender treatment of the wax cylinders on which the messages nre written are a theme of wonder; but for mailing purj tosca they are held to bc too ..agile. You know, perhaps, better than we what Mr. Edi*on is doing. The secret of his new recording me? dium has not yet reached us. Ile l,as put va). cylinders aside for new exp-nt)*'BtB Wax c\ 1 I indera arc to be used it a British Association .meeting at Bath. Colonel Goura-.id's address there is to be phonogruplied, then commuted to , C.. phonograph, and probably transmitted to America. The British Association is famous in the history of similar American inventions, the telephone leaving first been heard in this country hy the savants at thc Association meeting at Plymouth in 1877. Mra. Shaw left behind lier many disconsolate ladies with the-ir 8tfMat.cn in whistling un? finished and her class IIBB|BB?lllj broken up.

Her am? bition is to whistle to full Albert Hall. ? Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." nt the Lyceum, is a gnat success, r.nd Mr. MBlBleld bas made a de? cisive hit. The desire to see him in another piece -ill possibly be gratified before Mr. Irving rc'urns ** his theatrical home. Jn oth?r MMfttA* the ___*. Btrical sea-ion is dull. Thc chief fact is that "Betsy" is crowding the Criterion nightly.

Mr. Howells is charged with putting Tennyson along with Dickens and Thackeray on Un shelf of neglected nnd played-out anth.irs ti bring into vogue poets who reverberate a synthesis, dis.nrd grammar, use " haunch" as a poetic word, and ihymc "on" with "sun." A terrible crime, this; MOBBS than the rejection of thc Fisheries treaty. ENGLISH TRIBUTES TO GEN. SHERIDAN. OLD SOLDIERS AM) SAILORS IV LONDON HONOR HIS MKMORY. London, Aug. 2.V-A meeting was held at the house of Colonel Gouraud to-day, ol old soldiers and sailors to take action upon the death of General Phillp Sheridan. The Stars and Stripes wrre placed at half-mast at the. enlranee to Hie house, and a portrait ot (ieneral Sheridan, surrounded by trophies and amis used In thc Civil War, wai exhibited In the room where tho meeting was held. Colonel Gouraud pi--Ided and among those present were Crucial Met lurg, Colonels Vollum, Graham, Goddard, Rey? nolds and McNary, Major Hawkins and Copia n Monfort. Colonel Gouraud In opening the ?setfo| paid a tribute to Hie dead General and read a cable? gram of condol-nce which he had sent to Mrs. r-!"il diin. Letters of regret at their absence were read fiom Inlted States Min ster Phelp-, Mr. While, S-cre tary of Legation; Consul-General Waller and many others. Including Lord Wolseley, who wrote 1 "Gea era! Sheridan was a grand fellow all round. I felt, as proud of his achievements as if he had been com? missioned by Iho Queen Instead of by the Presider I." Commander Chadwick, Naval Attache of the I'nlted States Legation, moved tho following resolution ol eympathy, wh eh was adopted: America ls called upon to mourn the loas of ona of lier 1M1V generals, srhSSS great services will always be held amens the desren memories of the Nation. We tenler to tho wiro ind family our respectful condolence and sym? pathy in tho death of a good husband and a lovlni; Cit ber. Captain Shaw aeconded tho motion and General Rray (Rrltlsh) In supporting lt said: "General Sheri? dan cul -ti-d the sympathy and admiration, not only rf the Engbh Army, but of every army In Ihe world." Tho speaker dwelt strongly upon the sympathy l*c tv.t ? tha two countrler, and expressed "strong hopes thal they would always be friends. Said he: '"Al? though we havo our Gladstone and Metropolitan Hoard of Works, John Hull has still a kick left In him, which will never bo applied io America." -? MEANING OF TIIE KALNOKY-CRISPI MEl'.TINO. Ylenna, Aug. 25.?The " Frcmdenblaii," idell lug to the announcement, that Count Kalnoky, the Au. :rlan Foreign Minister, had gone to Eger to see Primo Minister Crispi, of Italy, says: '* Tho Interview proves that the cordial rolatlons between Austria and Italy havo not changed. The advantage of an ex? change of views between the two statesmen will be greater now when, notwithstanding comparative Quiet, ?lhere undoubtedly exists a feeling of permanent tin ccrtainty. Nevertheless, it v ould appai-cntiy hr- pre? posterous to council tlie lntervi'-w with adventurous or aggi-..sive tendencies. Neither at Erledth h-tulu: nor at Egor will the limit 01 pear, he overstepped. italy's vital Interests compel her lo direct lier atien tiiii to maintaining thc preaSnl balance of power In iii- Mediterranean. The identical Interesta ol Anitrls and Haly la the East permit Austria to acknowledge the Justice of this stand point. The Interview ahould bo balled with that istJsfaetlofl which an Inpresslon of renewed strength to the alliance for the protection of peace affords." Other YI p'lenna papers comment upon Ihe Interview In a similar strain. THE UMBRIA BEATS THE CITY OF NEW-YORK. THK NKW INMAN fcllAMl K Nor BIOBTBO WHKN THK CUNAItlKK PITACIIKD PORT.

WBBt to ihe ! Turtle Mountain* and south to Abe-loon, Dahn'a, ' practically covering the best portion of thc spring I wheat section of IhS Berth west. There have also 1 been Ba*TBIU local storms of wind and rain extending '. from Ncbia-ka to Boothera Illinois, all of which hns i greatly Interfered wllh the threshing of Ihe oat crop am! winter wheat. It n:u-t net be forgotten thal the threshing of winter wheat ha* not vet been tinbhed. The situation In Illinois as lo com can be summed up practically as fellows: No progrejs In maturity for twelve days; prospects ai-e good, but a change at once to hot, dry weather seems ahs'lutcly cs-.-nt|al to the final good outcome of the crop. What has been said with regard to Illinois will apply wltih e*|ual force to tho State of Iowa, with thl? exception, thal Iowa has had more cold, wet weather during the last fourteen days than any ether Slate In the coin belt. Srpteml-r IS ought to seo one-half of tho corn our of tho way of best, for 40 per cent of the remainder, October 1. while io per cent will rajahs a very late fall la make merchantable corn. Taking the Stato as a whole, the crop of coin of Iowa gives great promise, but ls len to twelve days late, and ls in as great need of warm weather as Illinois. The days In Nebraska at present are fairly worm, but still the nights are too cool, and lt will require favor? able weather to allow tho corn to ripen up and dry out an Immense crop, in Kansas, up to the last week of July, the prospects for the corn crop weie never bel? ter. Hut suddenly a marked change took place?fhe heat became Intense; hot winda prevailed, and In many of the central, western and souihwestern coun? ties ths dame?? to the crop has bren serious. In fact, amounting to a total failure. Tho trade at present has a fair Idea of the injury to tho spring Wheal crop by the frost of August 10. Spring wheat west of Huron to tho Missouri River and in W'aulk, Sibley, Hand, Hide, Hughes and the northern parts of Jeroauld and Ruffnlo ( mintie, has been almost entirely secured without damage. This area ls fourteen days earlier than Eastern Defeats and Northern Minnesota, on the same lino of railroad. Through Minnesota harvesting ls under full headway. Progress || slow In threshing sets. Rains have greaty Interfered with tho work, and as tho thresh? ing season advances tho revelations of the machine continue to keep up the quantity, but reduce tho Quality. st.

The brown tone front was complete as far as the third Itv, lint it. was necessary to have more brick tad mortar for thc completion of thc inside walls, ind Harlow- lind decided to g-t the materials up m the fourth and fifth floors in readiness for to norrow. 'lhere was t\ steam hod-elevator in the middle if the building, and it wns kept running nfter p. m. John Hart, diaries Flynn, Thomas Quinn md Patrick McCuno were kept busy for nn hour, aking the bricks and mortar off the elevator *t the fourth end fifth floors nnd ?hieing them near thc elevator shaft. Vnother laborer, named Durkin, was busy ixinj som* scaffolding on the fourth floor. A ew minutes before 2 p. m. Harlow told the m-n hat they had got ns much material on the fourth loor ns the beams would support. At thnt, time l.e weight on the fifth floor had amounted to two ? three tons. Hm men were about quitting work vhen a beam near the shaft on thc ifth floor snapped nnd without further warning i dozen other hearns broke under 'heir load. The falling materinl broke several beams of the ourlh floor nnd down went tho entire mass to he cellar, currying along all of the men except lnrlow, who was nenr the front of the building, ?"lynn nnd Durkin wero buried under th.-) rubbish, md Flynn was killed.

Hie work occupieil nearly nn hour, and in ihe nenntin.e a squad of jiolieomen had been sent from he One-hantedthBt Station. Hurt nnd Dur? an were carried in an ambulance to the Ninety linth-st. Hospital, and the body of Flynn was ?emoved to the police station. The damage to he building did nett exci'fd 1500.
