They Will Re Given a Great lteceptlon Whun They Keach Germany. Berlin, Aug. 25. The American news papers having reported that about 2,000 German-American veterans of the Franco-Prussian war of 1870 were com ing here to take part in the fetes com memorative of that conflict, the Ger man officials prepared to give them a reception which should be of a national character. Official information has since been received, however, which shows that the promised 2,000 men have dwindled down to about 210. The officials feel that this small number will not justify a national demonstration. Nevertheless, all Germany knows that the German-American veterans represent an immense mass of the me who fought in the war of 1870 that are now in America, and will accord to each of them a splendid reception. The veterans on arriving at Bremerhaven will be welcomed by the local Krleger Verein (war society), and will be ban quetted. Each veteran will also receive a memorial medal. Upon the arrival of the veterans in Berlin United States Ambassador Run yon will deliver to them a speech in reply to an address which will be pre sented to him by the veterans. In his speech Mr. Runyon will receive the men as citizens of the United States and not as societies of German soldiers taking part to the fetes commemorative of the war of 1870. This will involve a deli cate task, as the ambassador will have to avoid wounding the feelings of the French, and consequently it will be necessary for him to make very diplo matic reference to the oocaslon. of their coming, failure to mantion which would on the other hand be extremely likely to offend the Germans. The American veterans throughout their stay in. Ger many from the moment of their landing will be the guests of the German veter ans. Tried to Kill His Wife. Maiden, Mass., Aug. 25.

Colonel J. " J. Mc Cook, receiver of. the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe; Wheeler H. Peckham, counsel for the Union Trust company; W. H. Rossington, wsjstern counsel for the Atchison reorganization committee, and others interested in the Atchison organization arrived here last evening. They are on their way to Topeka, where arguments will be made before Judge Caldwell on Tuesday to the court to is sue a decree for the foreclosure of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Rail way company. No opposition to the granting of the decree is expectei, though it is probable Judge Springer and other attorneys of Torrence's Ele ated Terminal Railway company.which latter claims $2,000,000 for violation of contract, may appear and resist fore closure until their suit is determined. It is the opinion, however, that Judge Caldwell will grant the decree. If it is granted the matter will be referred to a master in chancery, who is to advertise for bids and fix the date for the sale of the road. After the sale has been con firmed by the court the reorganization committee is to take hold and reorgan ize the property, when the recsjvers will be discharged. The decree of foreclosure which is to be asked for Tuesday refers only to the main line of the company and not lo the road property of the Atlantic and Pacific and St. Louis and San Francisco companies, which are in the hands of and managed by the same receivers as the main line and are included in the reorganization scheme. Subsequent ac tion will have to be taken, regarding these roads. As soon as the decree for the foreclosure of the main line has been granted steps for the foreclosure of the other properties will be taken. JUDGE FAVORS BLOOMERS.

Judge Wilson yesterday dismissed the prose cution against Mrs. Noe, who was ar rested last Thursday for appearing on the streets in bloomers. In delivering his opinion the judge said: "Women have a God given right to ride a bicycle and they are bound to have some comfortable and appropri ate dress therefore. Were Mrs. Noe a woman with one foot in the grave and the other on a pedal; were she of a size that threatened to frighten horses and impede traffic or were her habli ments of the sort originally designed by the women whose name they bear, I should be disposed to give her the limit of the law. "As it is the case is dismissed at the city's costs. VIEWING THE VALKYRIE III HATES OF TUE ERIE BASIX DRV DOCK TIIROWX WIDE OPEN. She Will be Taken Under Tow to the Hook To-day, Where She Will be Given Her First Sail In liaclng Trim In American Waters streams of People Flocked to See Her. New York, Aug. 25. Erie Basin dry dock proved a new Sunday resort for New Yorkers and Brooklynltes to-day. All day long streams of people flocked to the place where the English cutter Valkyrie III. lies on dry dock. The big gates at the entrance to the yard were thrown wide open to permit of easy in gress and egress. Fakirs selling photos and various appropriate devices, such as Defender ribbon, etc., hawked their wares and the basin assumed somewhat the phase of a fair ground. The hull of the Valkyrie was partly hidden from view by screens of canvas hung over her sides to protect her new paint from the blistering heat of the sun. Her crew were all away, having gone up the Hudson for a day's outing on the tender City of Bridgeport. Only one of them remained to act as a deck watch man. A yard watchman was stationed under the hull and several were on duty about the dock. For the first time since she was placed in the basin her decks were clear of tools, ropes, eto. She looked quite prepared for being taken out of the dock, as she will be to-morrow morning, when she will be towed to the Hook, her sails bent on the way and then given her first sail in racing trim in American waters.

Up to date nothing has been heard from the owner of the iron works mills, although ru mors of a coming voluntary advance are quite prevalent among his em ployes. FIFTEEN INDIANS KILLED. It ye Smith is Still Avenging the Death of His Father. , Chicago, 111., Aug. 25. A special from Burns, Ore., says: A courier from Dia mond Valley reports the killing of fif teen Bannocks by cattlemen under the leadership of "Rye" Smith. Smith's reason was revenge for the murder of his father in 1878 in Diamond Valley. There is great excitement In the town and throughout the country. TrOop A was in readiness to march on short notice and is awaiting orders from the county sheriff for authority to act. While particulars are difficult to ob tain it is learned that the matter has no bearing on the Jackson Hole trou ble. Ever since Smith's father was killed in 1878 by warriors of the Ban nock tribe he has been on their trail and not a few have met death at his hands. It -seems a party of Indians were on their summer hunt near Dia mond Valley and killed a number of cattle belonging to the stockmen, whose herds range In that vicinity. A party of cattlemen was organized to punish the marauders and Smith readily under took to lead them. The pursuers located the Indians about an hour before sundown at their camp near the western edge of the valley and without warning opened fire upon them. The Indian bucks were thrown Into a panic and fled for the hills, the squaws following suit. The stockmen pursued them and fired a vol ley at the fugitives, dropping several of them, including one or two squaws. The pursuit was not continued, the cattlemen believing sufficient punish ment had been Inflicted. The courier reports fifteen dead Indians were found after this onesided battle.

The cardinal's red chair was overhung with ferns and festooned with flowers. As the procession entered the hall the cathedral choir sang "Viva II Cardinale," a march chorus. When the cardinal was seated with 'Monsignor Satolll and Bishop Foley on each side, Assistant District Attorney Edgar H. Gans welcomed him on behalf of the Catholic club and the citizens of Baltimore In a few well chosen words. His eminence responded briefly, thank ing the committee. In the course of his remarks he referred to his travels In Europe and said that the more one trav eled the more he beomes convinced of the smallness of our globe as compared with the greatness of our America and the American people. He declared that the highest civic title that he aspired to was to be called a citizen of the United States, and he said: "I rejoice in being an American citizen, because here we have governmental authority without despotism; liberty without li cense, and liberty without trenching up on the rights of others. Therefore my travels abroad tend to Increase my love for my country." An orchestra played a number of sa cred airs, while the fortunate ones who had been able to squeeze Into the apart ment were formed into line and said a few pleasant words to his eminence as they filed from the hall to make room for the waiting thousands op the out side. The reception was continued for mora than two hours, when the cardinal was compelled to excuse hlmself( and was again escorted across UU crowded street to his residence. The cardinal objects to public demon strations on the Sabbth, but owing to the fact that the annual retreat of the Catholic clergy of the arch-diocese will begin to-morrow the officers of the club prevailed upon him to allow his flock to meet him to-night.

It was a quiet Sunday at Lighthouse Point yesterday, although the resort was visited by hundreds of people from this city. The liquor sellers observed the Sunday law in a befitting manner, and the visitors drank sarsaparilla un less they brought the picnic baskets with them. The "social" and "athletic clubs" are not disposing of beer there any more on Sunday and the place is decidedly dry. A new feature of the evasion of the law is the liquor peddler, who has a couple of quarts of liquor stowed about his clothes in pint bottles and who will furnish a drink of cheap whiskey to a desperate picnicker for ten cents. There are two ex-bartenders who do quite a lucrative business in the after noon in this manner, but they take few chances and seldom sell only to parties personally known to them.
