British Gov ernment has become Involved, In the labor troubles In Colorado. That Government makes it a point to look after the hum blest British subject, so when it happened that In tho troubles at Telluride. Launce lot Collins, a Britisher and a nonunion miner, was killed by strikers, as It was alleged, the nearest British Consul, at Denver, started an investigation and re ported the case to the British Embassy here. Sir Mortimer Durand. finding that one of the allegations was that the man was killed for lack of proper protection by the authorities, called the attention of the State Department to the matter. The department In turn forwarded th Ambassador's note to the Governo- - of Colorado and the latter has now- explained that owing to the existence of martial law In Telluride County It Is not possible to make the legal Investigation required to develop a satisfactory answer to the British 'note. It is expected that further proceedings will be taken when the labor troubles In Colorado arc at an end, and if It should appear that the British complaint Is well founded, an application will be made to Congress by the State Department for a suitable indemnity for the Killing of Col lins.

English, presidents respectively of the foreign and home missionary societies, constitute a committer to draft a pam phlet on "The Proper Management of Histoids." Jist why this clause was Inserted and why these two ladles were selected for the work was not made public. One of the delegates hinted, however, that the committee charged with prepar ing the memorial eIdcntly had an ax to grlr.d. and as the husbands of the two ladles who are to write on the subject appeared to be !! managed, it was de cided tlat they were most Competent to do Justice to -the matter, and at the sme time to ghe some wholesome advice. It was conceded that the pamphlet would have' a large circulation sot only among member of the society, but among the rearjlns public, generally. If the two au thors could bo prjvillcd upon to consent tb placing it upon the market As there were many ministers present with their wives it .was at first thought that It applied, to them, and one timidly asked If such were not the case. "No!" came the emphatic answer from the com mittee, "we Just mean the plain common eteryaaj," husbands.." When this flat had been glvin the few- laymen present looked shcept'hly nt, each other as though they would retaliate-in iotne manner, but they didn't say a word and were .soon conspic uous by their absence.

RAISING $100,000 TO SUPPRESS VICE Anthony Comstock of Xew York Addresses Meeting at Second Baptist Church. WESTERN OFFICERS CHOSEN. Statistics Show G41 Persons Sen tenced for Circulating Vicious Literature Million Books Destroyed. A movement, was started last nlht In the Second Baptist Church to raise a JW.O) fund for the perpetuation of the work undertaken by the Western Society for the Suppression of Vice. Anthony Comstock. general aKent for the Eastern Society, with headquarters In New York, addressed the meeting and spoke of the work which had been accomplished by the two branches since their establish ment, the one in 1873 and the local branch in 1ST7, to prevent the dissemination of vlcloui literature. R. . McAfee of St, Louis is the gen eral agnnt for the West, and works with Mr. Comtock- Technically, they are Post Office Inspectors, though they receive no pay from the Government. Mr. Comstock stated that to per cent of the- fines imposed upon persons arrested by them may be retained, but that thri has not been taken advantage of. since it might tend to hae a bad effect upoa subsequent cases. Mr. Comstock ypoke of some of the dif ficulties attending work of the character In which he and Mr. McAfee are en gaged. He said that during the thirty two years that he has been hunting down venders of vicious literature, seeral at tempts have been made to take his lire, and at various times Infected articles have been sent addressed to him through the malls. "People In general." he said, "have no Idea of the means resorted to by the pub lishers of this class of reading matter to circulate their trash. Their favorate meth od Is to obtain possession or as many col lege and seminary catalogues as possible and then circularize the students. In most of thee Inslltntloni thele will be at least one p-rson to whom the adt ertl-ement ap peals and will buy. If they get one started the others will follow. Another method Is to get. some unscrupulous acent in-the vi cinity of a school to pass the literature after -chool hours." According to the report compiled by Mr. McAtee fr the Wetern branch of the society, there have been K2 persons ar rested, of which number Wt wer found guilty and sentenced. Fines Imposed amounted to 5127.135. The amount of books Jnd pamphlets seized and destioycd vere' Z.CI pounds, while the circulars, pectus and ongs amounted to 1,013,107.

RAILROADS SET EXCURSION DATES Low Kates Offered Visitors' Worlds Fair at Stated Periods. to DAY COACHES FOR TRAFFIC. Temporary Bappape Warehouse to Be Built by the Terminal Association and Facilities Largely Increased. Practically alUof the railroads in the United States. Canada and even Mexico hate fixed dates upon which they will sell coach excursion tickets to the World's Fair. These tickets will be good for from sev en to ten days, and the low- rate at which they nre sold about 1 cent a, mile, or 70 per cent of the round-trip fare will en able persons of moderate means to visit the Fair without the cost of railway trans portation cutting too deeply Into the sum they hive set aside for this purpose. While the couch excursionist will not be allowed the use of sleeping cars and will hae only day coaches for the entire trip, the railroads are making every effort to put day coaches In this servicc.whlch will be provided with mapy conenlences and comforts. Aside from the discomfort of sleeping In a day coach. It Is stated that the coaches to bo used for these excursionists will be almost as comfortable as a Pullman, and that the saving lir'the con of transporta tion w-ill mora than compensate for the few discomforts. It Is stated that In the majority of in stances these coach excursions will orig inate within a day's ride of St. Louis, In which event the visitor will stend the dar In this coach as would be the case under ordinary conditions. As a result of the low rate and the ad vantages ottered on these coach excur sions, officials of the Terminal Associa tion are making extensive preparations to handle an enormous traffic on the dates set. The majority of the railroads in the united states and Canada have set the date for the coach excursions for May and June; several have only set two or three dates, and a few- have not as yet decided upon the periods. The Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern. Chicago. Peo ria and 3t. Louis. Big Four, Vandalia. Closer Leif and Wabash (east) have agreed to run coach excursions ever" Tuesday and Thursday, beginning May 17 and continuing to June 30. at which time It Is proposed tu make what changes In this serlce may be deemed neces sary. The Texas roads will send coach excursions tn St. Louis May 17 and 31. and the Cotton Belt. Iron Mountnln. Santa Fe. Missouri Pacific Texas Pacific. Frisco and Missouri. Kansas and Texas will send out coach excursions May 21, with limit on the tickets of seven days. FROM SOUTHWEST. Coach excursions from Arkansas, Louisi ana, Indian Terltory. Oklahoma. South ern Missouri and East Kansas will be sent out May 21 with time limit of seven days on Louisiana tickets and five days from other points. Other railroads of the West have as yet not determined finally upon the date of their coach excursions, but It the operating department will have ap proved a schedule submitted by the traf fic department by which connections can te made with lines entering t. Louis. On the east side of the Mississippi River almost all lines have fixed dates for coacn excursions. The Illinois Central from Natchez and Memphis, May 21. The limit en tickets from Natchez will be ten days, while the limit on tho Memphis tickets will be five das. ThCi Louisville nnd Nashville will send out coach excursions from different part or Its territory. Jlav 19 and 31. Lines from Georgia. Florida and -Ma-barca will send out coach excurslonsrMay 9 and 23 and Atlantic Cojst lines will have coach excursion trains May IS and 21. Jn the East the dates ot the cpach ex cursions have been arranged to work In with connections to St. Lnuis. The New Vork Central will send out an "xcurslon May 2( with a ten days' ticket limit, and the I'cnnvylrunla win be arranged with that of the Vandalia. While the Chlcago-St. Louis lines have pot as et arranged for coach schedule dates. It is believed that an agreement will be made and a big traffic mar be expected from the Windy City throuchout the Ex position period. The same Is true of the Burllngtcn. which taps a large granger country and Is expected to hring a very large traffic Into EL Louis this fall. f INCREASED FACILITIES. While the Terminal officials arc work ing night and day to complete the facili ties for handling the many passengers which the trains bearing not onlv coach excursionists, but ten-day. fifteen-day and many other varieties of visitors beside the regular traffic, tha. facilities for handling the larg amount otbaggage have also been increased. The Terminal Association proposes to erect a temporary building at the corner of Twentieth and Eugenia streets, closing Twentieth street at- Eugenia street nnd ImprovtaaT Tom street in order that It may LO CINCINNATI WSk CINCINNATI, HAMILTON & DAYTON Ry.

It Is estimated, cost J1S.0OO nnd the building will represent an expenditure of 115.W). This building is to be useil for heavy baggage and all baggage held for deliv ery to local polr.ts will be placed there and sorted out. it Is proposed to construct the roadway from the large subway under the Union Station tracks at Twentieth street so that It will lead directly to the new storage-house. In order that express nnd deliver- wagons receiving baggage from the eleators which arc lowered from the train platforms can be taken di rectly to this building. The Terminal Association holds trunks free of charge for twenty-four hours. On the first day thereafter It charges 23 cents for each piece and 10 cents for each addi tional day. Tills class of baggage will be held In the new building, and It Is stated that an enormous amount of baggage- is held In this way. visitors going to other points from St. Louis preferring to have their baggage held at Lnlon Station while they spend a few days nt the Fair to hav ing It delivered at their abode. IMPROVED BAGGAGE SVSTEM. A plan will soon be put in effect by whlch the isitor will be able to have his baggage checked and delivered before he can get on the train. The passenger calls at the baggage-room and presents his check. He receiver another check in re turn, and his check, with the duplicate or that which he has secured, which con tains Information as to what train he Ls going on and who will deliver the piece, is whisked to the storage-room through pneumatic tubes. The trunk, by a system of numbers, is found at once and Immediately delivered to the elevator in the subway, which rises up beside the proper train. Assistant Superintendent of Terminals Jere Coaktey states that the number of pieces of baggage has Increased from an average of 5.000 pieces to 7.500 piece?. This Includes hand baggage, which has In creased in a far greater proportion than the large baggace. According to the present plans, a large counter will be placed along the Twen tieth street side of the station, which will be used entirely for hand baggage, and will have a capacity behind it for many thousand pieces. In order that the hand baggage may be handled promptly, arrangements have been made for a large number of assist-ant-. vhose duty will be to find and de liver baggage to visitors All that a vtMtor will have to do is to hold vp his check so that Its number can be plainly visible or call out Its number, and one of. the assist ants Immediately proceeds to find and de liver the desired piece or luggage. It is believed that hand baggage can be delivered to many hundred persons .with but little delay by this method, as the counter Is very lone; and many assistants will be behind It. The various transfer and delivery com- Eanles that carry baggage to the trains avo adopted a system by which trunks can be delivered with the least -possible loss of time. Substations hare been established In many parts of the city, to which 'all bag-: gage from tne territory arouna win oe delivered. When this baggage ls delivered it is sorted Into heaps, each heap for the same train, and when the time arrives the pieces are delivered at the station for the trains. In this way the necessity of sending bag-gar-e direct from the point of origin to the station Is obviated, and the wagons are kept In sufficient numbers at the substa tion Instead of being scattered over tha routes to the station, as would be the case f all were compelled to deliver at that point.
