All teeommodatlens Boohed. r Heveral al. lor, and Many Caaaet Socnr Paagc Taking I'p Horses ta Pact! freight, aa Sheep aad Cattle far ta Kloadlkrra. Seattle, Wash.. July IB. Tho exodus to tho Klondike gold fields began to-day, stimu lated by tha piles o( cold dust that came down on the steamer Portland yesterday and by the wonderful stories of tho richness of tha mints told by tho fortunate miners. Early this morning crowds began gathering at tho ocean dock from which tha regular steam ers 8ill erery five days to witness the departure of tho steamer Alki. advertised to sail at 0 o'clock. There were men, women, children, horses, cattle, sheep and hof5.all bound (for ths won derful gold regions, going overland by nay ot Juneau. The deck of the ship was being converted into stock pens, and scores of carpenters were en gaged in the construction ot stalls. The horses are to bo used as pack animals orer tho Alaskan trails. The cattle and sheep will be converted Into dollar steaks for tha hun gry Klondikers. This Is the price per pound for fresh meat In that country. Freight accumulated at the dock faster than the vessel could receive It, and the passenger limit was reached long beforo tho sailing time. Uundrcds that anticipated taking the first ship were turned away disappointed. Two hundred, however, were sandwiched In the cabin and steerage, with the cattle on deck and the horses and sheep In the hold. These gold seekers are permitted by the steam ship companies to carry the usual amount of bag gage (150 pounds), besides provisions enough to ' last a year at the mines. They anticipate mak ing the Journey from Seattle to the mines by tha last of August or not later than Sept. 5. Tbey soiled away in tho best of spirits amid ths cheers ot thousands ot friends congregated along the dock. Immediately opposite tha Ocean dock, where the Alki was loading, the steamer Portland. tho vessel whose arrival caused all this Intense excitement, was lying at tha coal bunkers receiving coal and arranging for her departure to St. Michael on Tuesday. This steamer for many years was hoodooed under the name ot Haytian Republic She changed her name and with It her fortune. Good luck has since attended every voyage, and her last, which terminated yesterday morn ing, was a winner. Her passenger accommoda tions have all been taken, and about 200 have been turned over for August. On her next trip she will carry 230 in tho cabin and steerage. Her passengers are only permitted to carry 150 pounds baggage. The vessel's owners have refused to carry freight excepting their own at any price. The rate o f passage from Seattle to Dawson on the Klondike River is 9150. Among those who save engaged passage on her are ex-Gov. John A. McGraw and son. At Yexler Dock and Baker's Wharf two schooners are receiving freight and preparing accommodations for from 150 to 200 passengers. They are both bound for St. Michael, and an ticipate sailing Tuesday or Wednesday. The statement was made this afternoon that -. a syndicate had been organized for the purpose of chartering the steamer City of Seattle. She has passenger accommodations for 500 or COO. and is a very fast boat, capable of mak ing the passage to St. Michael In eight or ten days. A new Una of fast river steamboats to ply on the Yukon, running in connection with her. Is also suggested. The regular Alaska line contemplates putting on another steamer this week, and by this means hopes to be In a position to accommodate those who are desirous ot taking the inner or overland route by way of Juneau. The returned Klondikers have been very par ticular in warning those who contemplate going to the mines to carry provisions enough to last them not less than a year. They say that while miners are proverbial for generosity Klondike is an exceedingly cold country and the fountains ot human kindness freeze up. Letters received here from naval officers at St. Michael say there Is fully $2,000,000 in gold dust at that point awaiting shipment, and It is quite probable that this will come down by the steamer Portland on her down trip. The greater portion of the gold dust that eame in yesterday was consigned to the San Francisco Mint and Helena Sampling Works. Some of It was Durchased hers by banks and manufactur ing jewellers. Leading wholesale houses are doing large business in the way of outfitting for the miners, and trading generally is feeling the Influence of these great gold discoveries. WARXIXO THE GOLD MIXERS. It Will Be Early Enough Xnt Spring ta Leave ror tie Klondike. 3 l.t Fkascibco. July IS. The fact that to-day was Sunday, when men had more leisure to talk. Increased the craze about the Klondike gold dig , gings. Erery one discussed the remarkable re- ports from tha returned miners who reached Seattle and talked of the opportunities for get ting Into the new camp at Dawson City this fall. Careful estimates show that the Alaska Com mercial Company cannot transport mora than 200 persons through to Dawson this year, while the North American Transportation Company, which runs from Seattle to St. Michael and there connects with the Yukon River boats, cannot carry more than 400. Those who start from here or from Seattle as late as Aug. 25 or Eept. 1 will not get beyond St. Michael this year. The tcamer Portland will leave Seattle on next Thursday, and the Excelsior will leave here ou July 29. Tha number of people who C2u get In by way of Juneau Is limited, as the snow flies by Sept. 15, and Indians cannot bo procured to pack tha supplies. Of course, a man can go in "light," as old Alaskans say, that Is, parking cc bis back fifty or sixty pounds of grub and blankets, but few will make the ven ture in this way, as they would be helpless should provisions become scarce. Ono of the Alaska Company's officials says that not mors than ' ooo more men from the States can reach Dawson this fall. These, w UIi tho 2.000 miners scattered along the Yukon HIver who have already rushed In or are on the way, would make 1,000 strangers added to ihe June population of 3,000. These 7.000 .an be fed, but a larger number would create a famine. Last year, with only 2,500 on the ground, there was much pinching for food. and rations had to Le doled out to make the sup plies last until the first stesmer came np in tho ' spring. While there is much talk hereabout going In at once. It Is doubtful whether this city will lontribute more than 1,000 all told to the boom. Tho men who are eager to try their for tuno are deterred by fears of starvation. Old Joe Ladne, who founded Dawson City, and who left last night on the overland train for his homo In PI utshurg. N. V.. uttered solemn words of warning Just beforo bis train pulled out. He said: "Dua'tgci into Dawson till next spring, .ta'll loso nothing by delay, and jou may be spared from rovributiiig to one of the great calamines of mlnln.- histor. If 20.000 people rush Into Daw-sou thil fall half ot them will be without grub before February, and Ood knows bow they would be t ed from starvation. " When I first went to Alaska, six years ago, conditions were materially different from now, J There was not so much gold, but a man rartlT had trouble In picking up more than a living. There was always, lu most camps, food In plenty. "Last year, however, we caught It bard. Tnoro were times when many ot us wero compelled to live on flour and beans, and were glad to get that. This was due to tho great Influx ot men. They practically deserted Forty MUo and Circle City, and It was Impossible for boats to bring In enough substantial provisions tor all. The same thing will occur this year, and I look for starva tion to Inrado Dawson City. "There Is room In Klondike for thousands ot miners, but they must go at It gradually. All that section Is filled with nuggets, and In my opinion there will bo strikes made far richer than those now in sight Forty Mile and Circle City Is Just a little too far west to make mining very profitable. The ledge, as w know now. Is further east. I do not mean by this that mining at the camps named did not pay, but rather that returns were small for tho amount ot labor in volved. Later, when It Is possible to get machinery la there, those claims will be very TalnaWc, and In my opinion will yield millions." With tha opening ot next year the conditions for communication with the outside world will be materially better. Ladue Intends to take up with htm a number ot telephones, which he will string up between Dawson City, Forty Mile, and Circle City. The mining camp proper will also be connected with Dawson City, thus obvi ating many tiresome Journeys for supplies. There Is also wild talk ot a railroad along the Yukon River, which could be laid next summer, so sj to make tho new bonanza camp practically Independent of river navigation. In only a few places, ths enthusiasts say, would snow sheds be necessary, as tha strong winds blow the snow clear from the track for ths greater part ot tha way. Mr. Ladue said he expected to return to tho Klondike In a few weeks, when he would per fect a scheme that would boom Dawson City. Ha would not tell what It was. but before he left it was learned that several stock brokers were anxious to organize companies for the biggest claims In the Klondike district, and place the shares on sale in San Francisco. It is understood I that the scheme has met with little favor. I It Is probable that the people ot Dawson City will organize a Stock Beard. In which event tha scenes on Pine street, in the good old Bonanza days, will be retnacted. Some hard lurk stories come out incidentally when returned miners are telling ot their good fortune. Jack McTuston. ona ot the original Alaska pioneers. Is expected by the next steam er. He has grub-staked hundreds ot miners, yet he comes back himself with no money. He was the founder ot the Alaska Pioneer Society. The requisite for admission Is that a person shall have spent seven years In the Territory. There are 110 charter members ot this society. Stories have been printed here ot the extrava gance ot some ot the newly returned miners, but they are fakes. Ladue is the only man of the party who succumbed to tha temptation to buy Jewelry. He purchased a diamond ring and a watch and had nuggets made into cuff buttons and a cravat pin. Tho others simply bought new ready mode clothes and Indulged In what their appetites craved in the way ot food. Many of the miners are Germans, Swedes, and Nor wegians, and most ot them have sent a large part of their money to the old country to their families. Several of these men are preparing to take a trip abroad and return next spring, but they havn't even discarded their blue shirts and slouch hats. The style ot dress they wore In tha mines seems good enough for them here. A pathetic story of hardships ,endured,,by many miners and the devotion "of a partner was told to-day by one ot the returned men at the Commercial Hotel. Be said two ot his friends, both young nun, started from Circle City to prospect. They bad bad luck, and were return ing with a sledge when one fell sick and died. His companion packed the body of his partner on a sledge and hauled it mora than 300 miles in order to give it a Christian burial. BIO BTJtIKE IX CAZITOBXIA. Twa Hen Take 3.000 rmn a racket la tbe Tansy Geld Sitae. Sax Fraxcisco, July IB. The craze about the Klondike millions has caused Califomlana to Ignore the rich pocket of 42,000 struck by old pioneer Colby and a 10-year-old boy, Roy Beckwith. in the Tanxy mine near Jamestown in Tuolumne county. The two miners had leased the property from Tanzy, the owner, who paid recently only (400 for it, as It was re garded as worked out. They agreed to pay Tanzy one-quarter of what they cleaned up. They worked for months without striking any thing and Colby bad reached almost his last dollar. He is gray-haired and broken down, but bis young partner hated to let go, so they kept on. Suddenly they struck a pocket, and on Thurs day afternoon took out 930.000. Since then they have taken out $12,000 more, and the pocket Is not exhausted. Tho ore was so rich that they crushed It with a primitive two-stamp mill, getting out $40,000 In four hours, which beats the record for so small a mill. Colby at one time worked In the Bonanza mine, which holds the banner record for tha richest pocket, as $33,000 was taken out in an afternoon. TURRET STILL SQUIRMS.

Notwithstanding the fact that Tewflk Pasha, the Foreign Minis ter, announced at the meeting of the Ambassa dors on Thursday last that the Porte accepted tho principle of a strategic frontier as insisted upon by the powers, the Government Is still wriggling In an attempt to escape from the re sult of that acceptance. The Ambassadors held another meeting yes terday, and tha proceedings were considerably delayed by the late arrival ot Tewflk Pasha. When be finally did arrive be explained that the Sultan had detained him, and he then proceeded to submit a new plan for the delimitation of the frontier. The Ambassadors examined the plan and found that it was not acceptable.

It trill Be laid Belter tba Haas TBsy nad DUxS at Berbr Aajearnment Tlse Ingar Sehedale Agree I'pea Is an Entirety Xew One Tha Tax an Wall street Dropped. WaSiicioTOX, July 18. Notice has been served on the Democratic members ot ths Tariff bill conference committee that tho report, as com pleted and signed by the Republican conferees to-day, will bo submitted to them for their ap proval to-morrow at 0:30 A. M. The conference agreement will be presented to the House promptly after It meets at noon, and a special order will be adopted for Its consideration, Tha wheals have besn greased for prompt ac tion in the House before tha session and to morrow, so that the conference report can be presented to the Senate on Tuesday in order that it may be passed upon by that body as promptly as possible. Speaktr Read is confi dent that this programme can be carried out. Chairman Dlnglsy of the House Ways and Means Committee and Benator Allison, acting Chairman ot ths Senate Committee on Confer ence, have been at work all day long at tba Cap itol, assisted by Messrs. Cleaves and Courts, clerks ot the Senate and House Committees on Appropriations, respectively; Clerk Lord of tha House Ways and Means Committee; B. N. D. North of Boston, who has acted as clerk ot tha Sub-Committee on Finance since the' consideration ot tha Tariff bill was begun, and three typewriters and stenographers. They had a herculean task be fore them, and at first thought that they could not conclude It to-night. They did so, however, and the conference report and tha manuscript of the bill as It will appear when the proposed changes are made were sent to the printers early in the eveninjr and approved by tha full meeting of the conferences at a late hour to-night. The Senate conferees have no hesitation in saying that the bill, ai It comes from the Con ference Committee, will fall short temporarily of producing the necessary amount ot revenue by $15,000,000 or $20,000,000. When tha Houso bill was reported to the Senate, Mf. Aldrich. speaking for the Senate Finance Committee, said that It would not at once produce revenue enough, and he is ot the same opinion still. Chairman Dingtey does not publicly make this admission, but it Is well known that during the sessions of the Conference Committee he agreed with the opinions of tha Senate conferees that It will be necessary for the Appropriations Commit tees of the two Houses to cut down the expendi tures very materially In order to make up the deficiency of the new Tariff bill for a year or twa At least two-thirds of the amendments placed on the bill in the Senate were adhered to by the conference, but many ot them were verbal and unimportant in their character. Some of the most important changes made by the Senate, however, will be found in the new bill, and near ly all ot them are designed for the purpose ot Increasing the amount of revenue to be derived from It. Notwithstanding the persistent and wide spread statement that the House sugar schedule was adopted by the conference, this Is not tho ' fact. The schedule agreed upon Is a new one, and It is entirely different from any sugar schedule ever befere Included in a tariff bllL It is a scientifically constructed schedule, and ana of the much-maligned, so-called sugar Sena tors said to-night that when It is read and under stood by the public It will be accepted as a fair honest, and sensible piece of work. It is admit ted by the Senate and House conferees that tha new schedule will provide two or three million dollars ot revenue more than under the schedule as it was presented to the conference. It reads as follows: "Sugars not above number sixteen Dutch standard In color, tank bottoms, syrups ot cons Juice, melada, concentrated melada, con crete and cencentrated molasses, testing by the polariscope not above seventy five degrees, ninety-five one-hundredths of ono cent per pound, and for ererv additional degree shown by the Dolariscopic test thirty-five one-thousandths of one cent per pound additional, and tractions of a degres in proportion; and on sugar above No. 15 Dutch standard in color, and on all sugar which has gone through a process of refining, one cent and ninety-five one-hunrdedths ot one cent per pound; molasses testing above forty-five de grees and not above fifty-six degrees, three cents per gallon; testing fifty six degrees and above. six cents per gallon: sugar drawings and sugar sweepings shall be subject to duty as molasses or sugar, as the case may be, according to polariscoplo test." Senator Lodge's pet scheme for a tax on stocks and bonds, wbich was adopted by the Senate with surprising ease and unanimity, was dropped by the conference committee In the same hasty manner, as it did not seem to hare a friend at court. It Is not thought that the revenue sought to be derived from It will be seriously missed, and It Is the general opinion of the members of the conference that it would be a very difficult provision to carry out. Any loss that might possibly be sustained by the de feat of this tax on bonds and stocks Is more than made up by the action of the conferees in the restoration of argols to the dutiable list. The very last Item in the bill to be agreed to In conference yesterday, and one that caused a very prolonged and heated controversy, was the Senate amendment relating to reciprocity. The new provision Is a combination ot the Senate and House propositions, there being a radical change in the list of articles that are to form the basis of reciprocal arrangement between the United States and other countries. Senator Aldrich was the only member of the conference who remained loyal to the propo sition to keep works of art on tba free list. In tha new law, paintings, statu ary, and all works of art, except books for libraries (which remain free), are restored to the dutiable list, together with cotton ties, burlaps, matting. Ac Cotton ties take a specific duty of one-half a cent, and on the other articles there has been a light decrease of the Senate rates. The wool schedule, as agreed to, provides for a duty of 11 cents a pound on flrst-claM, 12 cents on second-class, and on third-class wools 4 cents a pound on that below 12 cents per pound In value and 8 cents above that of 12 cents in value. The duty on hides has been fixed at 15 per cent, ad valorem. Instead of 20 per cent, as fixed by the Senate bill. Tha Housa made a strong fight to have bides restored to the free list. This paragraph may provoke some de bate in the Senate, and, indeed, the Democrats declare that there are many provisions to which they will not agree. Some time ago the Demo crats served notice on their Republican col leagues that If the articles placed on the free list by a combination of Democratic, Populist, and Republican votes should he restored to the dutiable list, they would debato the bill for a month, if necessary, in order to have their way. They are still making their threats, but the i Republican leaders are not at all fearful that tbey will carry their point. They expect to bring the bill to a voto after three or four days of debate. ,000,000 Pound or Caaaalaa Waal Came to (.'a. Ottawa, July 18. Owing to the tariff legis lation In the United States the wool trade of the Dominion has bad a phenomenal stimulus. More thaa 3,000,000 pounds have been shipped since the oponln; of tho market six weeks ago. One firm has shipped 500.000 pounds. Good prices have ben realized. The desire to Import before the imposition of the duty caused a stiff ening ot prices. United States buyers were safo In making the increases, as tho prospective tariff would enable them to recoup tbemielres, Atid thus a m iterlal advantage was reaped by Canadian producers.

James Huey. tha Janitor of the flats at 123 West Thirty-third street, took his don llruno, a cross between a shepherd and a St. Bernard, out on the steps in front ot the building last evening to cool off. The dog was a big one, and the heat ot tho last two weeks had mode It nervous and Irritable. There were a number of children tn the street, and Huey decided to hold tho dog so that It could not chase the children. Tho dog barked at the children when he saw them, and Huey ordered him to stop. The dog turned on him and bit off the end ot one ot his fingers. Huey dropped tha dog's collar and howled. The dog ran into tha house. It scampered through the halls, barking with so much en ergy that all ot the women in the flats screamed. The dog reached the basement door and bolted down Into the cellar; then It ran Into the front room of the basement. On the way to the room Bruno upset a pile ot china. Huey had got a bucket of water to determine whether the dog was mad. but when he found It in the front basement room he locked the door, and thought that the dog was safely imprisoned, for a time, at least. While he had been chislnor tho dog all the women in the bouse had lifted their voices in a mighty screim. which aroused tho whole neighborhood and alarmed Bruno mightily. Tba dog. on being locked In the room, started to climb between the bars. It was a pretty Ufht fit, but the dog managed to do it, and Jumped out into the yard of the flat. Iluey heard it Jump. Every one in the street did. Huey ran out and grabbed the dog by the collar Just as Policeman Uotchkiss ran up the street. " I'll shoot him." said the cop. " Well. Ill bold hold him while you him," cafd Huey. "Be sure you don't hit me instead of the dog." The policeman stepped back two or three feet and drew his revolver. He aimed with caro at the dog's head and fired. The shot wasn't mortal and three more of them were fired. The dog was finally killed. Huey Jet ko of the body and then tookrd at bis hands. He was surprised to find that the flesh was torn off the socond and third fingers of his right band. From the naturvot the wounds it was plain that he had been struck by ono of the policeman's bullets. He looked reproachfully at Ilotcbkiss and then went to the New York Hospital to have his wounds dreatol. He said It wasn't the pollco man'a fault. DOT RIXGS Tiro FALSE ALAR3XS.

While Policeman John Clancy of the Weit 125th street station was passing the corner of Forty-eighth street and Tenth avenue at 9:20 o'clock last night he noticed a (mail boy cling ing to the lamp post and pulling the fire alarm for all he was worth. After one alarm had been rang, the boy rang another. The policeman concluded a conflagra tion must be raging near by. So he said to the boy: " Where's the fire, Johnny !" "Right down do block dere. Two 'r tree houses trarnin" upl People can't get outl Run down rtere 'n help 'em' You'll get yer name In de palp," was the urchin's answer. As there was nothing to show that there was any fire within a mlln of the place, the pllcemsn nabbed the boy by the collar and said: " You Just take me to that fire." The boy tried to siulrm away, but, finding that he couldn't, he owned up that he had rung ' the alarm " Just to ee the firemen come." He 1 had his desire gratirlt-d, for as he was making the explanation fire or six engines, three hook-and-ladder trucks, and a water tower came tearing up from several different directions. The boy was placed under arrest, and locked up in tho West Forty-seventh street station. He described himself as Joseph O'Brien. I3years old, of 508 West Forty eighth street.

Lctcour, Neb., Juiy If. It was announced i from the Roman Cathollu churches here to-day that the differences exlBtlng for somo time be tween Bishop Bonacum and several of his priests bad been eettled to the satisfaction of all concerned. The quarrel has extended over a period of five years, and provoked some very animated scenes and discussions. At one time twenty priests in the diocese wero In open rebellion at;alnt Bishop Bonacum. Tbey formed a powerful secret organization to pro mote their Interests, known as the Holy Alllanco ot St. Barnabas. The trouble grew out of tho alleged tyranny of the Bishop in removing his priests in an arbi trary manner. At one time Bishop Bonacum was In a police court charged with criminal Ubol growing out of the excommunication of one of the priests. The cases wero several times reviewed by Mgr. r-atolli and Mgr. Martinelll and were tried by a canonical court at Dubuqiio, and were once reviewed by the Holy Father at Rome. By the final settlement both sides make con cessions. Fathers Fitzgerald and Murpby, the niott aggressive of thoso In opposition to the Bishop, are well provided for. The former will have a good charge at Grafton, and the latter will go to Seward, both Nebraska towns. CUAP3IAX, DEFEXDER OF W03IEX. The Police Captain .luian a Mow Rle, aud Alx mib III L'mbrrlia.

He had an appoint ment last Tuesday with bis father In Lawyer White's office in the Pulitzer building. He went there, but found nobody to meet him. He remained until the next day at the Manhattan Hotel and was taken In custody when about to leave and arraigned before Magistrate Job Hedges. Mr. Rees says he hod no chance to be represented by counsel and was treated cruelly by the Magistrate, with whom, he asserts, he has had some political differences. The commitment papers, ho alleges, were pre pared with celerity and he was hustled off to Central Valley. Ills counsel, Mr. Meyer, read of his plight in tho newspapers, and on Friday got from Judge Barnard a writ ot habeas cor pus, armed with which he went to Central Valley and saw Dr. Ferguson. The lat ter refused to receive tho paper, and told Lawyer Meyer that he would send the Court a certificate showing that Mr. Rees was In such a condition that be was not fit to be moved. While the lawyer and doctor were talking the patient. In another part of the building, baa dis carded a sheet, which he says was the sole gar ment allowed him. and in some manner had se cured his clothing, which had been taken away from him.

His escape was discovered In live minutes. Mr. Rees thinks Keeper Callahan saw him whsn he jumped from the window. When he got over a mil near the Sanitarium he heard sounds of pursuit, and threw himself into a shallow brook. He heard three men discuss what they should do to catch blm, and listened to their agreement to go back and get dons to track him. Mr. Hens as soon as he dared more made a wild dash through the woods. To throw the dogs oil tho scent ne plunged through mountain streauis un Jo his waist and doubled and re doubled ou nil tracks. At daylight this morning, faint and hungry, he reached West Point. He borrowed 15 cents from a telegraph operator which he paid a boat mm to take him across the river to Garrison's where he boarded a Hudson River Railroad train and, getting up in a car, asked it there was a man present who would lend blm 20 cents to pay his faro to Flshkill. The money was furthcoming', and in this manner he got to his journey's end. Mr. Kcc3 gives no explanation of tho reason for shutting him up in a madhouse, and makes no charge of conspiracy agalnot any particular per son. He said his suspicions were aroused that something was in the wind before he was sum moned to the presence ot Magistrate Hodges, but he could not dellno bis suspicions, and tha denouement took him hy surprise. Rees is known In Flshkill as a hustler. Be sides taking hold ot and organizing the gas company there, he stArtcd a club at Van Wyck Lake and proposed to ue the water from the lake for bis gn plant, besides making of tho re sort a rendezvous for wealthy men. The village people say there was merit in his scheme. Rees 1 35 yers old and l a fine-looking man. Sev eral weeks nwo ho had an unpleasant experi ence at Flshkill village. One Sunday he was driven from Van Wck Lake to the village chtircn. During the service a young woman and a man entered and took seats beside him In the pew.

Passengers In Sleepers an Two Trains Lert With Little Taih ar Clothing. ATLA.NTA, Ga., July 18,-Traln No. 7 on the Bouthern Railway left hore last night at a late hour for Chattanooga with tho usual sleeper, well filled with well-known persons, attached to the rear. It arrived In Homo about 2 o'clock, and waited eight minutes for tho down train to Atlanta, Ona of tho passengers, just as tho train was about to depart, discovered that his trousers, containing all his cash for travelling expenses, was missing. It did not take hlra long to com municate his discovery to the rest. Every traveller found he had lost something of value; some ot them clothes and watches, alt of them money. A wild search through the train was organized, but the bird had flown. If thore whs excitement on tho northward flying vestibule train, there as hys teria on the Atlanta-bound train very shortly afterward, for the conductor, a few miles from Atlanta, woke up to make the heartbreaking discovery that the only rainiest left him in which to perambulate the aisles wns a pair of scanty unmen tionables. But ho had fellow sufferers. Every peacefully snoozing tourist awoke to the mortification of finding not only bis money and valuables missing, but even the vest ments, which custom decrees as necessary to re spectability. When the train rolled Into this city this morn Ing the passengers not only lacked proper cloth ing, but the cash to socure It, Various expe dients wore resorted to, and finally tho passen gers of both sexes left tho sleeper clad In varied and strangoly contrasted garments, which pro voked the mirth of the unsympathltlng. The total amount estimated to have been lost Is over 91.000. The theory Is that the robber or robbers embarked at Atlanta on the up train, and after working It got on the south-bound express and completed operations there. Thoy then must have slipped off at some way station. SUE BURIED THE irROXO MAX. Hra. Talltarerro Identified Another Han aa Her Husband and nad a Funeral. Hcktisotox. Ind., July 13.
