London, July 2, The Duchess of Dovonshlro's
historical rnnoy areu ball, which was Riven to
nLght, was the final gayety ot thn Jubilee season.
It was nn Affair which had (rained onljr lens ad

(Iron In Now York last winter. It had been at
tacked In the pulpit, and had boen mado tho sub

Tho guests began to nrrlvo nt 10:30 o'clock.
At that hour a surging crowd of sightseers had

with light.
Tho ballroom Is In whito and gold. The saloon

sketches by as many authorities, and wero
works of high art. Nor was tho beauty and
richness of the costuming confined to tbo royal
guests. Lady Italncllffe, as Catherine ot Rus
sia, was one of the finest figures. She was tbo

Calcutta, July 2. Tho riot of Mohammedans
at Chitpur, a suburb ot this city, has ended. It
began on Wodndsday.
Tho origin of the trouble was tho action of the
authorities In demolishing a mud hut for which
tho Mohammodan oWnorg refused to pay rent,
protending that it wns a mosquo.
All tho available European and native police
of Calcutta wero mobilized and sent to Chitpur,
but for more than forty-eight hours a mob of
6,000 mon held tho northeastern part of the
town. Tho telephono and telegraph wires were
cut. Numbers ot Europeans wero stoned and
their property attacked. Instead ot Us being an
exclusively religious outbreak between sects, as
it was at first understood to be.it was a dis
tinctly nntl-Europeon riot.
Tho troublo has now boen settled by a com
promise, which, however, lonvos tho natives
arrogantly elated. Tho Mollnhs or priests had
preached openly to tho natives for twenty-four
hours that by rioting thoy would gain tho point

In several parts of tho city It is still danger
ous for Europeans, and there is a profound
feeling of Insecurity, especially In view ot
tho open threats tbat ore made against
whito women. All British authority waa
defied, and tho situation is regarded
as grave and disquieting, especially as
HI feeling between tho Mohammedans and
Hindoos is not apparent, although tho action ot
tbo authorities in destroying the hut waa
brought about by a claim a Hindoo brought
against a Mohammedan. The Europeana
fear that tho triumph which Is being celebrated
by tho natives foreshadows n now attack. They
denounco tho authorities for dallying from tho
outset. Instead ot opposing tho rioters with a

Up In his breezy tower. In tha first stra
tum of clouds Prophet Dunn calmly declared
yesterday that tha city was merely having nor
mal July weather. Tho city wlpod tho accum
ulated humidity froln Its beaded forehead with
its manifold handkerchiefs, and said things un
fit for publication. Even on tha porch ot the
Prophet tho temperature was, by the aerial
therraoracter,83 at 1:45 o'clock in tho afternoon.
Then it began tcdcsccnd under tho lnfluonco ot
an atmospheric disturbance that did not mani
fest Itself to tho Prophet until about 3 o'clock.
Then he saw through his glasses tho spirits
ot tho air building n rampart of clouds far away
on tho northern horizon. Ont of tho blackness
there camo a wind that sent tho mercury flying
down tho tube. It was a thunderstorm frappe,
and that is tho reason tho temperature tumbled
In such a hurry. Tho cold blast from tho north
truokttho moistened air with a suddenness
that transformed tho vapor to solid lco parti
cles. Instead ot tho usual July 'downpour,
thero was a cataract of hall. It was hall of tho
old-fashioned sort, tho atoms of which have boon
likoncd to tho eggs ot cortaln fowl. Skylights,
windows, and tho roofs of hothouses above the
Harlem Rlvor woro smashed by tbo crystal
Tho storm travelled southward soraowhat
sluggishly, letting out a lot of lightning ot a
picturesque and dangerous sort, nnd got down
to the neighborhood ot the City Hall a little af
ter 4 o'clock. There was somo hall In It then,
but it was not of tho hen's egg variety, and did
not harm anything or anybody. Tho llghthlng
was brilliant, and the rush of wator was llko
tbat of a tropical shower. It did not come
down in drops, but In sheets, choking tbo
mouths of sowers and flooding somo of tho cel
lars of South and West streets.
Telegraph and telephono wires wero tempo
rarily affoctod by tbo electrical disturbance.
Tho air had most of the moisture squcexed out
of it. and the temperature dropped nearly twen
ty degrees after tho shower, which lasted about
thirtv minutes.
Mora than COO persons had passed through tho
turnstiles at the Polo Grounds yesterday and
the trains on the elevated road were becoming
crowded with passengers bound for the ball
game when the storm tn all Its fury passed over
Harlem. Shortly before 3 o'clock a number
ot the Boston players began their early practice
I and were batting near their clubhouse In left
field, not minding tho vivid flashes of lightning
and the rumbling of thunder, which became
louder as the dark clouds quickly drew nearer.
When the rain began to fall tho players as well
as tho few spectators not on tho grand stand
ran for cover. It had been raining for probably
five minutes when hailstones as largo as
twenty-five-cent pioccscamodown, rolling across
the grounds llko so many marble.
Everyone was watching the storm when sud
denly thero was a flash ot lightning, followed
by a clap of thunder that mado tbo timid quake
with fear. Bill Clark, who was leaning against
a radiator In the clubhouse, mado a Jump and
began rubbing his left leg, while "Ducky"
Holmes mado a grab at his foet. Tho latter com
rjlalnedof annmtmess in his loos, whllo Clark
wanted to know what the stinging sensation
meant. Nearly all the players complained of a
headache Several shingles wero loosened from
the roof ot the clubhouse, and tho flag polo wns
slightly dsmagod. Tho downpour or rain and
ball did not stop until otter 4 o'clock, but it had
Iirevloualy been decided not to play, as right and
eft field were In a condition for a boat race.
Lightning shattered the fiagpolo on the roof
ot Kohlenbeck's soda and lco- cream pavilion
at ISsth street and Riverside Drive, but did
no further damage thero. Blcyclo Policeman
Roth, when hurrying to the pavilion for shelter,
felt the effects of the shock and was 111 and
dizzy from it for some little time.
At 4:10 P. M. a cupola on tho roof of Ebllng's
brewory at St. Ann's avenue and 130th street
was struck by lightning. It carried nway one
corner of the roof of the cupola, and tho brew
ery employees rang for the flromen. thinking
Are would follow tho shook. An cngtno and
truck responded to tho alarm, but no fire fol
lowed. While the storm was at Its worst lightning
struck tha brick air shaft on tho front of tho
home of the Society for the Relief ot Half Or
phan and Dcfltttuto Children at Manhattan ave
nue and 104th street. The shaft la eight feot
square, and is ten feet higher than the build
ing. Its sides are perforated by tiles for tho
admission of air. Tho lightning hit the north
wost corner of tho shaft and knocked half a
dozen bricks out. It jumped to the llrst row
of tiles on the west side, nnd knocked the ends
oft all tho pipes. Then it gouged somo of tho
bricks out of the shaft and pabaod to the ground
on the lightning conductors. All of the chil
dren In tho Institution, 225 In number, were In
tho playrooms on the ground floor when tho
building was struck. The shock was not felt by
any of them.
Lightning struck tho big flagpole situated
about 100 feot southwest of tho l lnremont Ho
tel on Riverside Drhe. A plcco nt tho top
nbout four feel long was broken off unevenly,
and a splinter two feet long was taken out of
tho polo a few feet from the bottom. The
lightning mado Its way from tho top of the polo
to tha ground In a circular routo, leaving block
lines somewhat resembling tha strlpns on a
barber's pole. There are also a number of
black spots nbout the size of a plate plainly vls
lblo over tho whito paint. Tho Park pnlieo
had removod the flag In anticipation of Uio
storm, so It was not damaged. The pole, which
Is in5 feet high, woj put up by the Grant Me
morial Committee and Is reputed to be one nt
tbo highest In this part of tho country, Tho
flog which It boro measures 40x20 feet, Tho
polo Is mailn'of pine, which was selected In pref
erence to steel.
During tho storm lightning plnyed nhout tho

ranging in length from ten feet to only n few
inches. 'I hoso fell lnio tho street nnd nn tho

Mean ta Introduce Rome Anll-Tr-ist Provision
and a Free-Silver Amendment and. Per
haps, the Old Income Tax Scheme lodge's
Plan t Tax Stock and Bond Transactions.
WASltrNOTOX, July 2. Tho action of tho Ro
publican cauous last night in deciding to
abandon tho proposod tax on tea and tho
proposed Increased tax on boor, substituting
therefor a tax on transactions in bonds and
stocks, hag glvon an entirely now turn to tho
controversy over the tariff question. Tho
abandonment of tbo proposed anti-trust legis
lation especially dlsploased tho Democrats,
and they nro not to be placated with tho reten
tion of the anti-trust provisions of tho presont
Tariff act. They doclaro that they will intro
duce tho anti-trust propositions thnt woro
drafted by tho Republicans with the approval
of tho Flnanio Commltteo and tho Committee
on the Judiciary, nnd on theso propositions
mnko their political speeches.
It is said to bo tho Intontlon ot tho Democratlo
leaders also to olTer a froo-sllvor amendment
and perhaps tho old Income tax provision ot tho
Wilson bill, and thus open up a goncral financial
discussion. Senator Mills of Texas is said to bo
tho man selected to present tho froo silver
amendmont, nnd some of his colleagues nro so
enthuslastlo as to lwllovo thnt it may bo
adopted. It is stated, howover, with great em
phasis on tbo Republican sldo of tbo cham
ber that tho forty-thrco Republican votes and
tho threo gold Democratic votes of Caffcry,
Gray, and Llndsnywlll bo cast solidly against
any frce-stlvor amendment that may bo offered.
Nothing would bo accomplished, of course, by
Its adoption, ns It would be promptly rojoctcd
by the conferonco committee, but the Democrats
profess to bellovo that tho silver discussion in
tho Senate In connection with tho pussuge of
tho Tariff hill would bo of great political benefit
to tho Democratlo party.
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts Is tho author
and sponsor of tho plan to tnx transactions In
bonds and stocks. It was adopted by tho caucus
last night nftcr a statement from Senator Alli
son that tho Tariff bill as at present framed
would fall at least $20,000,000 short of pro
ducing the necessary amount of rovenuo. This
statement wns based on estimates submitted to
the Finance Committee by W. C. Ford, chiof of
tho Bureau ot Statistics, and which were nro-
fiarod with great caro. Mr. Allison stated that
ho retention of tho tnx on cigarettes, the only
intarnal tax retained by tho Finance Committee,
would produce $2,500,000, nnd tho elimination
of the provision with regard to tho drawback on
beer would save S2.50O.00O more, thus leaving
n deficiency of $15,000,000 according to Mr
Ford's estimnto.
Several Senators had moro or less fanciful
propositions for supplying this required amount,
butnonoof them seemed to fill tho want until
Mr. Lodgo proposed the plan that ho has long
bad in contemplation. Ho wns confident thnt it
would fill tho gap, and tho caucus, without re
quiring evidence of this point, ncccpted It. The
Republican Senntors are now confident that
thoy have provided for a sufficient amount of
revenue, but somo of them, notably Mr. Al
rirlch, the ablest tariff man on the Finance
Committee, says that his colleagues are
working absolutely In tho dark and that
his statement to the Senate a few dnys ngo that
the Dingley bill would create ft large deficiency
will bo pcrreciiy nppilcotno to tho Senate bill
when tho pending amendments nre agreed to.
Mr. Aldrich Is ovldcntly not nt all pleased with
the Lodgo nuicndment as a revenue producer,
but his views havo not been forced upon tho
Finance Commltteo since they yielded to tho
Houso and accepted practically all its schedules.
Tho proposed nmondment for a tax on trans
actions in stocks and bonds probably will bo
.oftared in tho Senate to-morrow by Air. Allison,
acting Chairman of tbo Finance Committee. It
will provido for a tax ot 5 cents on each If 100
worth ot bonds or stocks Issued and 2 cents on
each share sold or transferred, including all
Salomon margins. Tho nmoudment will bo drawn
with tho greatest caro In order to avoid leaving
any lonpholo for fraud. This Is very dlllleult to
provide against, as tho officials of the Govern
ment hnvo always found tbat n tnx which is
puld through the medium of stamps is tho hard
est kind of tax to collect, nnd they point to
numerous Instances where loises involving largo
amounts ot money have followed tho failure to
nlllx stamps, or tholr accidental detachment.
Senator Ixidge is confident from a careful
study of tho question that his proposed tax will
produce much more than 5-1 5,000.000 in rev
enue, and claims that at least $8,000,000 will
l-e collected from tho transactions ot the Stock
Exchange of New York alone.
Tho New York Stock Kvchange telcgrapbod
yesterday to thn Chairman of tho Finance Com
mittee of tho t'nlteil States bnnato it request
that a hearing bo glten to the Exchange If tbo
report was correct that a proposition wus boforo
tho commltteo to tax transucllous in stocks and
Tbo matter was ono that aroused great Inter
est In Wall street. I'ho proposed tax was de
nounced as only another evidenco of legislative
hostility to the moneyed Interest, which, if
enacted Into law, would 1hj likely to hnvo a vory
bad olfect upon business as woll ns to produco
much confusion. Wall street's rocnllettlon of
the similar tnx levied In war times Is not of a
satisfactory sort.
It was pointed out that It wns not wlso legis
lation to mnko silt h an Invidious distinction In
levying a tax upon ono class of business to the
exclusion of all others, nnd thnt there wns no
more reuson why sales of stocks and bonds
should bo tnxeil than sales by grocers, drug-
Sists. hardware merchants, and dry goods
"A stamp tax." said ono member of tbo Ex
change, "letiod on checks, notes, bills of ex
change, deeds, and all other legal documents
would tic inlliiltolr preferable. When stocks nnd
bonds wero faxed before. It was it war measure,
and n stamp tax was also general at thnt time,
nnd'tho loyalty of the people was so Intense
that any lax wns cheerfully paid, whether largo
or small, it lielng considered n contribution to
save the nation and perpetuate tho Govern
ment: but there is no sense In a tlmo of ponce
like tho present In singling out ono lino of
I uslnoss for taxation and letting nil others go
free, as Is now proposed. It Is simply a Popiills
tlo attack on Wall street and out-and-out doma
gocIni." Tho statement enntnined In somo despatches
received In Wall street that tho proposal wns
tn put a tnx nt tho rato of 2 cents a share upon
all transactions In stocks, resulted In thn sug
gestion, which might prove nt interest tn tho
Senators from tbo Weetorn mining State, that
a tax upon such torms would be likely to rinse
up tho mining exchanges, tho bulk of whoso
dealings mo In shares whose market vnlue is
but u tow cunts.
