Abroad Notes. Kinployes of the Ilnlthnnre anil Ohio fmitlnv stern Hallv.'ny in St. Lntil.i receivml ilrafts for their salaries yesterday under the new system, which abolishes the old pay car. If any iloubt has existed hereto fore as to the relative status of the II. & O. S-W. to the r.altimore and Ohio Company, it ought to lp dispelled by a glance nt one of these pay checks. As stated, it Is a draft, drawn by O. I'. Howarth, auditor of dis bursements, o'.t J. V. .McNcal, treasurer of the llaltiinore and Ohio Kal'.ronil Company, and payable to the employe named therein. Moreover, the draft bears tlie caption, "llal timore and Ohio Hailrond Company," and there is nothing on its face to show that the payee is an employe of the Kaltimore and Ohio Southwestern Hallway. As these drafts are made, payable in this city at the National Hank of Commerce, the natural inference is that Ihe ISnltimoro and Ohio Railroad has funds deposited there, and as this bank is the depository of the Haltimore and Ohio Southwestern, thero is a further Inference that tlie hitter's ac counts have been transferred to those of the Haltimore and Ohio company. The Republic announced some months ago that the Ilaltimoro and Ohio Southwestern was in reality the southern division of tito Kaltimore and Ohio, and as such would soon lose its identity an a sperarato com pany. On August 1 all of its accounts were practically transferred to the books tf the Haltimore and Ohio at the general offices of the company in Haltimore. There are a few departments left at Cincinnati, which will be transferred in the near future, and then ihe general ollices of the Haltimore and Ohio Southwestern will cease to exist as n separate department. When this is ac complished, it is thought that the St. Louis ollices will be made the headquarters of the Southwestern division and that there will be several changes in titles among ollicials in tlie operating and traffic departments. This, of course, presupposes a merger of the chief executive otllces of the Haltimore and Ohio Southwcti'rn into those of the Balti more and Ohio company. I'll HSII)K.VrS' A (111 I5I3.1I PAT.

The third date tor the recent presidents' agreement going Into er fect came on August 1, and so Mr aa can be learned there Is not tho slightest pros pect of Its becoming effective. Local of iicia'.s who have taken an active part in tnu otganizatlon of the four committees pro vided for bv the New York resolution were nlmoi-t ready to admit yesterday that an other presidents' agreement had gone the w.'iv of all good presidents' agreement". Added force was lent to the general dls cruragement by the announcement of the illness of H. li. Courtwright, who was se lected to ! tho joint head ot the Uansis City and tho Omaha committee, lie has been given a long leave of absence at a time when his presence was imperative. DUIlculty was experienced in getting a com Iirtcnt man to assume the duties of the position, nnd for this reason tt was de termined to make 3Ir. Courtwright the head of both committees. Without him to direct the work o these committees Just at this time tho prospect of getting out of tlie woods seems dim. The Northern Pacific still maintains tho unfriendly position it as-sumed at the out cct, and all efforts to organize the at. Paul committee have proven futile. In tho mean time the date for the o'd rates to bo re stored has come and gone, and the so called "cut rates" are still in ellect. The situation out of Kansjs City is said to be as bad as ever onexportii and on pack-ing-housu products. In fact, several of tho roads refuse point blank to enter Into any agreement regarding products for export, and this iias added to the embarrassment of the situation. The good intluences, the moral tonic, 'as some pica) to call it, injected by the recent gatheiiru; of the presidents and their as sertion that the agreement, which would stick, had ilnally come, seems to Have lost Its effect and a reaction Is setting In. Un less some Imperative instructions issue soon from the thrones the situation will become as bad as if not worse than It was before the New York and Chicago meetings. THOSE TKXAKIIAXA RATHS.

To-day, In explain ing tlie purpose of the Railroad Commis sion's meeting, called for August 14, to fur ther consider the Texarkana rate Munition. Commissioner Jlayfield talil that the object of the adjustments set forth 111 propositions one and two below v.'3s to overcome, at least in part, the effects of the difference.1) between the rates applying from St. Louis, New York and other points to Texas com mon points. The low rate." applying are to be hereafter adopted for application from the same points to Texnxknm and points taking the same rates as Texarkana. Proposition 1. To ndopt for -ipp'l?atlon from Texarkana, Waskom ami intermediate points on the Texas and Pncltic Hallway and points in Texas on the Northern divi sion of the Texarkana and Kort Smith Rail way to points east of Donison, Sherman, McKlnnev, Piano and Dallas and forth ot Tyler on' the St. l.ouis Southwestern Kali way of Texas, the Sherman, Shr"Voinirt and Southern Hailw.iy and the Texas Pacific, tales sufficiently high lo accomplish tho object stated in explanation above.

Sherman, Mc Klnnev, Piano and Dallas and north of and Including Tvler on the St. Ixiuis Southwest ern Railway of Texas, the Sherman, Shreveport nnd Southern Hallway and the Texas and Pacific Railway, but not from Texarkana, YVe.skom and intermediate polnls on tho Tcxus and Pacific Railway, r.or from points in Texas on tho northern division of tint Texarkana and Kort Smith Hallway, rates sufficiently reduced oelow thosu now In fore uluce the result set forth In explanation above. In connec tion with this proposition will be considered the necessity for increasing or diminishing the district in which the adjusted rates shall apply and for confining the application or such rates to the movement of freights in tho direction in which the disadvantages complained of actually exist. m'MCIXU S.1IAM. PAKCELS. Shippers nt Xctv York Opposing the Trunk Line Utile. New York, Aug. 3. Representatives of prominent forwarding houses, shippers, resi dent buyers ntid other Interested parties are holding a conference in this city to discuss tho ruling of the trunk lines, which. If en forced, will prohibit the bulking of small parcels under one cover and forwarding thc-m as a single shipment. This ruling is being strongly opposed by th; Interests named, and in addition to the discussion of tho matter in its various aspects the pur pose of the conference is to learn the pres ent status of the case which Is pending be fore the trunk line officials. At the conierence the steps which have so far been taken to prevail, if possible, upon tho railroads to abrogate the rule were re viewed. Tlie matter is now before a com mittee of counsel of tho trunk lines, having been referred to that special committee by the Joint committee representing tlie differ ent lines. As far as the shippers and for warders are concerned, no further action is likely to be taken until the special reports or until the railroads finally pass on tho question. COAIi FOR EXPORT. W'illlmn IC. VnnilerlilH fione Abroad to II0I1I Conferences. New York, Aug. 3.-The World says: It Is reported that the sudden departure for Europe of William K. Vanderbilt, on his yacht. Valiant, was the result of a sum mons to London to meet George Gould and A. J. Cassatt, who are in that city. Ac ccrding to this report, the Vanderbilts want to secure the Wabash system, which Is at present owned by the Goulds; while Mr. Cassatt wants the advice of l!r. Vanderbilt concerning the closing of several large con tracts for the exportation by the Pennsyl vania. Chesapeake and Ohio and Norfolk and Western ot large quantities of bitumi nous coal. It Is expected that the bituminous coal exports to Kurope will become very large In the next year or two because of the gradual falling of the English mines. It Is said that Jlr.

Eugene Haas, for twenty-three years chief clerk 'n the Pari: Commissioner's of fice, died suddenly yesterday at his horn. No. 1013 Russell avenue. The funeral will he held h-miirw- morning from the resi dence. Th., lurli.1 will be private. Mr. .puis was onr of the best-hnown fig ures about the CltwIInll. He had been con nected with th2 Park Commissioner's office as chief clerk, or. practically, secretary, since the llr:it Pi rk Commissioner. Major Eugene Weigel. bepan his initial term. He lasted througn sll the changes of polillci, and died at the advanced n?e of 72 years. Mr. Haas was peculiar, but he was hon est, straightforward aril true to his friends. He knew every detail of the city parks of St. Loul". He actively supervised the es tablishment rf the Zoo at Forest Park, the start toward that feature having ben n.i'l" in the co.nse of the term of Park Commlssiii'ii'r llitliard Klemm. who uc cteded Major Wt.iv.el. This start was in the for-n of a few deer, which were do nated. The Zr.o. rrcre than anything else, was a fal w'lh JI:. Haas. He was a de voted stu lent and lover of animals, birds and flower, pnd his greatest pleasure Witt in attempting to understand those three great pri'du-Hioiis r,f nature. As an instance of his hobby In this direc tion, it may be related that lor many vears ho kept on his desk in the old City Hall a huge bull frog, which he attended with the most scrupulous care and affection. He had an especial tank for the frog, and a ladder that ran out from the water, and on 'which the frog could exercise itself. He fed thH frog with the greatest regularity, and would talk to it earnestly. It was always thought that the frog un derstood him: certainly it would come to lllm ivhpn hl rnllpil nntl TVnnM iit frnm Hla fingers. Some time ago the frog died. Then j it was siuueu anu remained one or the treasured possessions of its old friend. Jlr. Haas was an accomplished scholar and linguist. He was well read in botany and all the branches of physiology, and spoke German, French. Spanish and Ital ian, In addition to English, with the utmost fluency. He came to this country when quite young, and, for some time prior to his jp pointment to the only public office he ever held, wns engaged in the wholesale toy buslneis. His wife died some years ago. leaving him with two sons and a daughter. Wil liam A. Zukoski of the Levls-Zukoski Mil linery Company married a sister of .Mr. Haas. "Mr. Haas wns hi somewhat feeble health even when I knew him," said John P. Kech ter. who was Park Commissioner under ap pointment of Mayor Noonan. "At times he would have spells that somewhat resembled heart disease, and these nece.-'sitated the greatest care for his health. He was pecu liar in many respects, but withal one of the most lovable men I ever knew. He was deserving of absolute confidence. His knowledge nf the parks or St. Louis was greater, bevond a doubt, than that of any other man.1' TROUBLE IN A NEGRO CLUB. Dispute Ended by President De parting With the Light. There Is' discord in the ranks of the Young Men's Itepublican Club of Webster Groves, an organization of negroes. The trouble hns been brewing ever since It has been known that 15. M. Henderson, one of the members of the club, was trying to get employment from the Itepublican State Committee in the coming campaign as a spellbinder. Thursday night the trouble cul minated at a meeting of the club. Hender son was accused of Insincerity and was in vited to leave the meeting, which he did. Then John Walker, another attendant nt the meeting, was accused of being present for the purpose of breaking up the club, and finally the president. Manual Williams, be came disgusted. Picking up the lamp, table and his chair, he marched out of the hall, leaving the. meeting In total darkness. The trouble wns precipitated by E. B. Hale, who is employed an a copyist at the Recorder's otllce at Clayton. Henderson took Hale's remarks personally and replied in a spirited manner. For a moment things looked squally and some of the members were preparing to go for Town Marshal Nace. when Henderson left the hall, fol lowed shortly after by President Williams, with the speaker's stand and the light. An Informal adjournment was then taken, but ill-feeling still exists and lively times are expected. SENATOR GORMAN FOR BRYAN. Will Take an Active Part in the Campaign. IlEPl.'BLIC SPECIAL. New York, Aug. 3. It was learned to-day at Democratic State headquarters that Chairman Jones and Senator Arthur P. Gorman of Maryland will probably share oftlces in the St. James building during the campaign. It has been practically decided to have the Eastern branch offices of na tional headquarters In that building. This means thnt Senator Gorman will take a leading part In the management of the national campaign in the Eist, if not the leading part. This will be good news to Democrats all over the country. Senator Jones will, of course, lie in and out of the New York branch of national headquarters, but it is understood that the management of the campaign will be entirely in the hands of Senator Gorman. Samuel J. Randall, who four yearj ago supported McKlnlcy, has written Chair man McGuire declaring that he will vole and work for Bryan this year, and that lie knows of a number of Democrats who voted for McKinley in IKiS, who will vote for Bry an this year. WHITE LEAD POISONING. Laborer Afflicted With the Malady Suffers Untold Agonies. A curious case arrived at the City Hos pital yesterday afternoon In the person of George O'Dell, a laborer, living nt No. 1114 Devlin street. Although appirently there was nothing wrong with him so far as ex ternal appearance went, he was probably in as much pain as any person that ar rived in the course of the day. His case was simply one of lead poison ing, but the complaints from which ne wns suffering were as varied as though he were afflicted with a combination of dis eases. Not only was he suffering from a most acute attack of rheumatism and In testinal colic, but also from a severe tooth ache, all his teeth being on the point of dropping out and the roof ot his mouth covered with ulcers. O'Dell is employed at a paint works and the constant mixing of white lead hajj af fected him in the manner mentioned. IMMUNIZES THE SYSTEM to liquor of any kind or description.
