A, erowd awaited the President at the station. The other members of the President's party were taken to the hotels assigned them by the Entertainment Committee. The President will rest to-morrow. Asked this arching if ha would comment oa Ma trip or his many meet ings with the people, the President said: "I have been deeply moved by the patriotism of the people and delighted with the evldenooa' of their prosperity." QiMU.it, III.. Oct. 15. The committee of the Chicago Peace Jubilee celebration appointed to receive President McRlnley met the Presi dential train at Kankakee- this evening and escorted him into Chicago, where ho will re main nntll Thursday, participating In the cele bration of the pesos concluded two month I WO. All, the way, from St. louls.. where the train sto-ppefl, and at soma places Where It did not atop, the paoptoioama down to the sta tions to ce the Chief Executive, to try to get him to talk of shake hands wit them. At Terra Haute tho procession thnt enme down with the Reception Committee to meet him caused a brilliant and somewhat unusual effect In street marching by the use of umbrellas in red. white and blue. They ware carried open and disposed in rows in the sequence of the national colors. ' . In his speech the President referred to the late Daniel W. Voorhees, who lived in Terra Haute. In this speech the .president referred in words too direct to perMM of misconstruc tion to tho unmistakable sentiment which ths people at every' stop westward and eastward had manifested to htm vociferously concern- . Ing the United States' policy In the Spanish settlements. He said: "Ht FButow'CitmmaTFor seven days we have been travelling through the great West, and everywhere we have gone great assemblages like this have ' greeted us. I do not misinterpret it I know what It means. It has no personal significance, but it does hiivo a national significance and it does mean that all tho people of all the sec tions are onco more united under one flag; anltod In purpose and patriotism. It means, my fellow citizens, that the people of the United States want the victories of the army and of the navy to be recog nized In tho treaty of peaee. It means that they want those of us who are charged With tho administration of the Government to aee to it that the war was not In vain and that the just fruits of our achievements on land and sea shall not be lost." At Paris, II!., whore the people oame down with flags to welcomo him. the President said from the car platform : "If no word was spokon the flogs you oarry would proclaim your faith in our common country and the glowing patriotism which is in every heart. We have but one duty to per form, and that is to stand by the old flag, and i iMunntely for us In every part of the country u'. the people are settling beneath the folds of t hat glorious banner, united under It In peace and lighting under It In war." Major McKinley shook hands with all the people at Oakland who could get to him while the train was at a standstill. He went on to Areola, where a stand, brilliant In bunting !inrt flags, had been so placed that he ind only to step from the ear plat onn to It, The people of Areola were very iintnuoliatlo and whole-souled In their greet nts. picturesque in their apparel, and thought ul In sending some beautiful flowers to the resident's oar. The President said to them that the people of the country S could help to solve wisely the grave problems resting upon the nation, be cause the peopie of tha country, whenever tnev consider calmly and soberly any great question, are unerring In judgment. Mr. Lin coln lol owed the people, and. following the people, he made no mistake. We have had great glory ont of the war, and In its settle ments we must be guldod only by the demands of right and conscience and duty, and when we have settled the problems of the war our next triumphs must be those of commerce, not by arms, but by our superior advantages, and by the skill and genius and energy of ourfieople. After the cheers which followed the speech one man in the crowd proposed three cheers for Dewey. The cheers rang out sharply Tho President spoke briefly at Decatur, and was followed by Secretaries Oage and Bliss. Mr. Bliss said: "1 will only say that as I have been travelling for seven days through this magnificent West , em country, and have seen the evidences of prosperity. I havo found hnppy faces and contented faces; and I have felt that as we were approaching the season of our annual thanksgiving we were to And a time and a word for this prosperity and all the goodness of Providenoo to this vast people. and also that we were to bo thankful for the magnificent patriotism that raised In thlry days 200.000 men to fight tho battles of the United States. It Is a time of thankfulness that in so brief a tlmo we have conquered so large a territory Cuba, Porto Itleo, the La drones ami Manila, with Dewev. with Shatter, and have destroyed the Spanish fleets. Surely we have great cause to be thankful." Senator t ulloru and Gov. Tanner, with others of a committee selected to escort tho President to riprliiglleld, eamo aboard at Docatur. where there wero also requests for the autographs of the President's company, to bo combined In an album and sold for charity at a carnival to be held In Decatur. At Decatur tho appearance of the crowds changed from those of an agri cultural district to those of a manufacturing or railroad community. The President said at Springfield: 'Ism glad to be at the home of the martyred President. Ills name is an Inspiration, and a fcny one. to all lovers of litorty the world over. He saved the Union ; he liberated a raoe. a race which he onco said ought tu be free because there might come a time when these b ack men could help keep tho jewel of lib erty In the family of nations. If any Indication of that prophecy wero needed. It was found when these brave black men ascended the hill of San Juan in Cuba and charged the enemy at Kl Caney. They vindi cated their own title to liberty on that lleld.and with our other brave soldiers gave the price less gift of llborty to unuther suffering race. My fellow citizens, the name of Lincoln Will live forever in immortal history. His fame, his work, his llfo Is not only an inspira tion to every American boy and girl, but to all mankind, and what an encouragement his life work has been to ail of his successors in the Presidential office I If any one of them at ony timo has felt that his burden was heavy he had hut to re flect upon the greater burdens of Abraham' Lincoln to make his own seem light. The na tional name never was dearer to our people than now and never more respected throughout the world. All thanks to our glorious army Snd navy. Thanks to the fleets of Dowey and ampsou, and the armies of Miles and of Shatter and of Merritt, we have won glorious triumphs for humanity, and, having gone to war for humanity's sake, wo must accept no fottlement that will not tako Into account tho ntereat of humanity. , My friends, what we want to do." a voice In the crowd.

Death had evidently resulted from asphyxia tion by natural gas. and occurred some tlma on Thursday night Mr. Burton, who Is fore man of tha Buffalo Bolt Works in thla eltr. secured his vacation on Thursday last snd left on s visit to his mother In Cattaraugus county. His wlfs and daughter accompanied htm to Buffalo and returned horns late in the evening. Oas stoves were burning In two of the bedrooms in ths house. Tha mother and daughter want to bed on Thursday night and left a note on ths door. which they had placed there at noon, ststlng that they would, not require any groceries to day. Ths neighbors did not see them coma home, but as th'sy did not stay away without Informing them of ths fact, they supposed they were -In the house. On Friday morning Mrs. a.

Ths sstimatss of pro dnctlon given In the tables complied by ths Department of Agriculture make the wheat crop of the world for 1808 the largest on rec ord, although this Is somewhat offset by ths stnallnsss of the reserve stocks. Official fig ures pn area show an increase of 680,172 sores in Francs, of 218.688 In the United King dom. 163.800 In Ontario, Canada, and 147. 800 tn Manitoba, in areas under wheat. The lepartment's October report on the crop of the world Is summarised as follows: Ths Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture and the several commercial authorities have Issued their estimates of ths world's whsat crops ot 1808. The Beerbohm estimate is equivalent to 2.640.000.000 bushels of sixty pounds. In the grand total varying but little from the Hun garian official estimate. The whsat crop of India for 1898. as officially reportedAmounted to 242.021.280 bushels, that ot 1807 to 182. 667.483 bushels, while the annual average for ths previous flvs rears was 226.440.080 bush els. The Frenoh area under wheat was about 4K per cent, greater in 1K08. and. takmg wheat. rye and maslin together, the area Increase amound to 703.179 acres. The average yield of wheat thfci year was nearly 22 bushels per acre against less than 15.2 in 1807. An official estimate for Hungary puts the Wheat crop at 119.000.000 bushels, against 89,924.000 last year; rye. : M.l 54,000 bushels, against 35.1B0.000 last year: barley, 01,440, 000 bushels against 41,4 5.000 last vear: oats. 84.041.000 bushels, against 59.881,000 last Ths wheat crop of Bonmanla has been stated in English papers, on the authority ot an official estimate, at 56.800.000 bushels, but some reports from that country report that this estimate is too large by several million bushels. The offers of wheat from ltoumanla and Bulgaria are described as "rather extra ordinarily restricted." The preliminary official estimate as to the Prussian rvs crop Is said tp state It at 240. 400,000 bushels, against 223.200.000 last year. The German potato crop was reported in the middle of September as a full average. In Austria-Hungary the crops of wheat, rye nd oats are reported as very satisfactory. Bar ley is merely average In quantity and deficient In quality, while males, on the whole, is not a good crop. . Reports from Russia are quits conflicting. Supplies of new wheat for export come for ward very sparingly, and considerable quanti ties of grkin are said to be moving toward the Srovlnces which suffered so severely through le failure of the crops last year. At the beginning of September tho crops in Argentina were reported to be in fine condi tion, but about hree weeks later they were reported as suffering for want of ralrand threatened by locusts. Aooounta from Australia report the crop out look there as excellent. The sowing of fall grain crops In Europe has been delayed by drought in a number of coun tries. Complaint on this score has been quite serious and widespread. COUNTERFEITER ARRESTED. He Pretended to Be a Detective and Wanted Money to Capture Counterfeiters. Wabhinoto. Oct. 15.

He Informed a Secret Ser vice detective, who was sent to investigate the matter, that he wanted $30 for expenses and a guarantee of $400 reward for the capture of the counterfeiter, which ths detective was not authorized to furnish. Pierce then repeated his offer to the bureau, adding that he had in his possession Incriminating evidence against the counterfeiters, consisting of moulds for making coin and raised notes. The case looked so suspicious that Chief Wllkie to-day ordered the arrest of Pierce, and he was taken to Atlanta, The detective found In his possession two 15 notes raised to $50, moulds for making silver dollars and BO-cont pieces, and a quantity of spurious coin.

Wood thst hs had disbanded his entire command and sent his men home to work. He said that hs hsd made a speech to his men telling them that tha war was ovsr and there was no use of thslr retaining their arms and maintaining their organization when It was necessary that they should be at home supporting their families. The srms of the disbanded Cubans wars seat to Lieut-Col. Wyley, the commander of ths American garrison at Bsraooa, who gave receipts therefor. Col. Valiants belongs to ths division of Oen. Pedro Perez, whose headquarters are near Ouantanamo. In appreciation of the conduct of Col. Valient Oen. Wood appointed him a member of ths tax commission at a substantial salary, snd gavs a member of his staff, who ac companied him. a clerkship In the palace. Oen. Wood received word from Ouantanamo to-day that Oen. Pedro Peres had not laid down his arms on Oct 10. as baa been arranged. Ths reason given was that he was awaiting In structions from his division commander. Oen. Callxto Garcia will return from El Cobra to-morrow morning to make arrapgements to goto Santa Orus toattend the Cuban Assembly. It Is understood that Oen. Wood will fur nish Oarola with water transportation. Oarola will not go as a member of the Assembly. He has steadily refused to stand as a candi date for membership in that body, bnt believes thnt hs oan by personal Influence block any antl-Amerloan measure that the extreme Cu ban rapublio men may attempt to put through. Oen. Wood has received' informstion from reliable sources that there will be an outburst of antl-Amerloan feeling during the convention, and la prspsrtng to maintain oruer. He hss received complete authority from Washington to garrison any plaoss In the province of Santiago that hs may sse fit. Hs will send Col. Hood with the Second Im munes to the Holguln district aa soon as hs gets word that tho most of the 12,000 Spanish troops there, under ths command of Oen. Narlo, havs sailed for Havana. Col. Hood arrested ths Cuban Lleut.-Ool Domingo Romero of ths Monoada regiment last night for riotous conduct at Bongo. Romero, with a dozen men. angered at Col. Hood's action in stopping gambling, rode Into Bongo to show his contempt for Hood's author ity. All of the Cubans were armed. Romero rode up the principal street with his companions brandishing a revolver. Hs wss stopped by Lieut. -Col. Grubbs and Lieut Bagual after a struggls. In which Romero was wounded in the leg, snd Col. Hood threw him Into ths guard house, where hie remained all night He was brought tn Santiago this morning for trial. The Cuban soldiers at Boocoro swore to resoue Romero, but did not attempt to carry out their threat The American officers here and at other towns in the province have complained to Oen. Wood that hia order compelling them to go un armed when not on duty Is unfair as long ss Cuban officers are allowed to carry machetes and revolvers. No order against Cuban office rs carrying arms has been Issued, and in case of trouble eucb as Col. Hood bad. at Bongo ths Americans are at a disadvantage. The publio schools havo been opened at Ban Luis. Bongo. Sagus de Tanamo. and Ouan tanamo. The schools will also be opened at Manzanlllo shortly, and tn the other towns of the provlnoe as fast as ths American garrisons an established. A'OT READY TO QUIT SOLDIERING. BeghBients Ordered to Be Mustered Ont Ask to Be Retained in the Service. Washtkotoh. Oct 5. A stampede to be re tained in the military service has begun among volunteer regiments that were ordered to be mustered out. Petitions signed by a majority of men In regiments whose services would be soon dispensed with, asking that they be retained, are coming in every day to the War Depart ment This Condition of thlnes Is surprising, as was the great clamor for the dlsoharge of volunteers following the signing of the peace protocol. Officials of the military adminis tration do not pretend to be able to explain Its full meaning, but most of them believe that it Is the logical result of the recovery ot the country from the hysteria that prevailed when ths troops were returning from Cuba. The approach of cold weather, with the prospect of returning to their ordinary vocations to se cure a livelihood. Is also given as ons of the reasons that has Induced men to ask to be re tained in the army, with surety of three meals a day and residence in a mild climate. First Lieut. Charles S. Campbell. Adjutant of ths Bnoond Pennsylvania Volunteers, called personally on the Secretary of War and pre aented a petition, signed by regimental and company officers nnd enlisted men. for the rev ocation of the orders to muster .tae .regiment Sut ot the volunteer service. The petition was this form: "We. the undersigned, officers and enlisted men of Company D, Second Pennsylvania In fantry, do hereby respectfully petition the Honorable the Secretary of War to retain this regiment In the service of the United States, and do cheerfully pledge ourselves to serve the full term of our enlistment unless sooner dl.tchirged." The petition was signed by 720 officers and enlisted men of the regiment a much larger percentage than would appear, as the regi ment Is composed ofTouly ten companies. Ac companying the petition Is a statement from a number of mon saying that they will be glad to oontlnue In the service It the regiment is to be retained. The Lieutenant-Colonel of the Second North Carolina Volunteers, also ordered to be mus tered out was at the War Department to-day to report that 80 per cent, of the regiment wanted to stsy In. The Second Texss Is like wise snxlous to be retained, and many peti tions have been received from regiments which were ordered mustered out requesting an extension of furlough, with the understand ing that the regiment will be retained at its expiration. All these requests for extension of furlough have been refused. The War Department has under consideration an application from 250 men of the First Georgia to be enlisted In the Thirty-first Michigan to fill vacancies oausod br the die charge ot men who want to quit sol diering. The First Georgia Is under muster out orders, and the Thirty-first Michigan will be retained. Tho two regiments wero together at Chlckamauga and established cordial rela tions with each other. Secretary Alger will grant the netltlon presented by Adjutant Camp bell In behalf of the Second Pennsylvania. REM OH SO OPXa I HUM HAVANA.

The United States Government will not recognize the ground taken by the Spanish Evacuation Commission ers In Havana that the question of what con stitutes movable property Is for tbs Peace Commission In Paris, and not for the joint Evacuation Commission In Hsvans, to de termine. A protest against the removal of ordnanoe material from Cuba will be. If It has not already been, made by the American Com missioners there. Pending the action of the Government In Washington on the Spanish contention that the Peace Commission had jurisdiction In the matter, the Spanish author ities have been taking from their positions snd packing for shipment, to Spain many of the modern rifles mounted for the defence of Ha vana. What measures, beyond a protest. hav been taken to stop this proceeding cannot be ascertained. Deaths of Soldiers at ataj.Ho, Washington, Oct 15. The following health bulletin from Oen.

Oct 15 Beginning on Tues day next simultaneous with ths hoisting of ths American flag at Baa Juan and the com plete and permanent occupation of Porto Rico by tho military forces of ths United States, ves sels trading between tho United States and Porto Rloo win be exempted from ths tonnage tax of 20 oen ts a ton now Imposed by ths mili tary tariff for that island. Ths tonnage tax of 2 cents psr ton on vessels in the ooastwiss trade of tha island Is also abolished. The tar iff regulations were modified to this extent by an order Issued by Secretary Alger. It hss ! been possible for ths Administration to take i thla step to promote American shipping by I virtue of war powers snd of the establishment of the tact thst Porto Rloo Is to be wholly and permanently Amerleaa. It was not possible to adopt a similar course in the oaso of Ha waii, aa that archipelago was acquired by treaty and not by oonquost.'and it is not prac ticable to consider suoh a course In ths case of Cuba and ths Philippines until ths future pollttosl status ot those islands haa been set tled by the Pesos Commission and Congress. As the trade between the United States and Porto Blco la confined to American vessels, the effect of ths order should be to lnoreass ovsr threefold ths smployment of American tonnage in ths Porto Rico trade, as in 1807. ths rear before the war, American tonnage from Porto Rloo wss only 16,000 tons, com pared with 48,000 tons foreign. Porto Rloo is still a foreign oountry. so far as ths laws of the United States are oonoeraed, and until ohanged by Congress, customs du ties will bo collected on imports from ths isl and. So, too, with ths navigation laws, snd American 'shipowners sre warned to scours registers for foreign commerce before enter ing ths Portp.RIoo trade, as vessels with only coasting enrollments and licenses will be sub ject to penalty on their return to the United States. Major-Oen. Brooke has telegraphed the Sec retary of War "from HanJuan that if the mili tary force in Porto Rico is reduced to num bers not oommsnsurato with tho command to which hs ia entitled, he will eXpeot to be re lieved as commander of the military depart ment embracing the island. The War De partment Is expecting to hear from Oen. Brooke at any tl jib his views aVi to the number of troops that will be required to properly garrison the island, and nntll he has mad his report on that subject no decision as to the size or tho force to be maintained there will be made. From Oen, Brooke's telegram it is assumed that he will advise that a comparative small number of troops be kept In Porto Rloo. With the adjournment of the joint Commis sion of Evacuation, in which Oen. Brooke was the senior officer of the American representa tives, he will actively resume his duties ss military commander In the territory. When the Spanish flag is hauled down all over the island on OctTlB and the Stars and Btrlpps raised in Its place. Gsn. Brooke will be tho Chief Executive of Porto Rloo. Ac tually, but not In name, he will be the Military Governor of the island. The plan of a Mili tary Governor for Porto Rloo, to hold until the Washington authorities deem It wise to sub stitute a purely civil administration, has not been fully arranged. From Oct 18 until the S Ian of the Government has been put Into effect en. Brooke, or the military officer who will succeed him If he asks for detachment will bo In supreme control of civil and military affairs. It Is the Intention, however, of the Government here to have aa little of the military element as possible In the administration of affairs, and so to all Intents and purposes a civil ad ministration will be in operation from ths time the Spaniards surrender authority. MtTH PESKSTLTAXIA'S HOMECOMING. Gov. Hastings Will Be Here to Meet tha Mln-- newaska Col. Wikofl's Body oa Board.

Wikoff will be buried In the Arling ton Cemetery at Washington. The Minne waska will landtat Jersey City. Ths transport Michigan is due here to morrow with Oen. Lawton and his staff. The Michigan's bottom 1st very foul, however, and there are some doubts about her reaching hero much oefore the middle of the week. The transport Mexico and the hospital ship Re lief left here yesterday, both'bound for Ponoe. Porto Blco. The Mexico carried a miscella neous cargo and has about fifty passengers, several of whom are wives of officers going to join their husbands. The Mexico will go from Ponce to San Juan.

For months he hssbesn personally shaping everything relating to the tour, often jotting down Idsas on a tablet which hs keeps by his bedside. Thus a week ago he was seised with the notion of taking with him ths tallest msn In ths German Army.

LOMD MOBBBBBY XT TOM LEAD. Bis Indorsement of the Boudan Policy Baa Greatly Enhanced His Influence. Bpeaai CobU Detpaicli u Tan Bow. I London. Ost 15. Lord Rosebery, in tha race for the leadsrshlp of the Liberal party, haa gained another advantage over BIr William Harcourt by being the first of ths opposition leaders to speak In support of Lord fiallsbury's Boudan policy ; but In this Instance hia success was due almost to sccldent. Lord Rosebery. in the fulfilment of an old engagement, had to address an agricultural gathering at Epsom, and an hour before the time an enterprising reporter tried to obtain an Interview with him upon ths Fashoda question. Lord Rosebery hesitated, but finally decided that aa an ex Premier he was too dignified to be inter viewed. " I will, however." he said. " glvs ths laat ten minutes of my speech to this Fashoda businsss and hops thst will satisfy you." Up to thst moment hs hsd intended to con fine his remarks to agricultural matters, and his eloquent vindication of England's rights snd determination In the Boudan was practi cally an impromptu effort. It has deeply stirred the oountry, snd emphasised the fact that Lord Rosebery Is ths only Liberal states man possessing ths necessary personal mag netism, as the phrase goes, and of ths requisite commanding force and ability to whom tha Liberal party can look with confidence to ox trlcste It from Its deplorable position. Blr William Harcourt haa himself to blsms. Reporters went to his oountry seat for the pur pose ot getting an expression of his opinion on the Fashoda business the day after the famous Blue Book wss published, which wss several days before Lord Rosebery spoke. But Blr Wil liam seemed afraid to commit himself. It has since become evident that he never dreamed that the oountry was so unanimous In approval of the Conservative Ministry's foreign policy. He refused to speak for publication until he had consulted Mr. Horler. and there is reason to believe that these two statesmen agreed to maintain silence until It was positively known how fsr France would go. MEAT FAMINE Iff GERMANY. The Bundesrath Mtay Permit the Importa tion of Live Cattlo. Aeci'af Cablt Dukk to Tn Bow. Berlin. Oct. 15. The most famine In Ger many threatens to be so serious that tha Bundesrath, at Its nsxt sitting, will consider the advisability of a partial abrogation of ths decrees forbidding the importation of live cat tle. The strength ot the Agrarian party is seen in the fact that ths Nord DtuUcht Zet tung, which ia the official organ of the Govern ment, is publishing articles maintaining that there ts an abundant supply of good meat at reasonable prices. These articles are grimly answered by such advertisements as ths ChenniUer Neuntm Nachrlchten prints offer ing "prims fat dog flesh, quite young." Moreover, the cattle markets are no longer held st msny places, owing to the total ab ssnos of stock. Prosperous customers ate pay ing 10 cents a pound above ordinary prloes. Concurrently there is an enormous lnoreass in ths Importation of cured pork, bacon, ham and sausages, which pay a duty ot 17 marks per 100 kilograms. These Imports corns chiefly from the Uuited States. TUB BISMARCK MEMOIRS. Dr. Schweninger Bays Be Bas Marked SO Errors la Dr, liuach'e Book. gperiat f noli Dapatch ( Tax Bon. Bxxi.ih. Oet. 15.
