Boston, Auk. 14. Simple but itn
prossiro funeral services over tho re
mains of the Into James Uussoll Lowell

to view and woro taken to Mt. Auburn
immediately after tlio services at the
chapel. They wero followed by about
fifteen carriages. Thero was no service
at the grave.
"While tho body was being conveyedTo
its last resting plaro in Mt. Auburn,
church bolls throughout the city tolled
and flags wero displayed at half mast.
The spot solected for tho poet's grave,
it is understood, was of his own choos
ing. The lot h in a valley in tho rear
of the cemetery and directly in tlio
shadow of Longfellow's lot, whero rest
the leuiaius of America's famous bard.
An immense crowd was gathered in the
cometory. Bishop Beach pronounced
the last prayer which completed the
Episcopal burial service, for although
Dr. Lowell was a Unitarian, it was his
wish that the funeral services should bo
from tho Kpiscopal service book.
Among those in attendance were five
survivors of the class of 'S3 of Harvard,
of which Dr. Lowell was a member.
Tho Order of Loyal Legion, of which
Dr. Lowell was a member, wss also rep

Wheat anil ityo Advancing Whllo O its are
New Yoiik, Aug. 14. The trading to
day in all small grains at the produce
exchange were attended by great excite
ment. The movements of prices were
rapid, and fluctuations wild and voilent.
In wheat a gain of 33j cents was
made. The mad advance was based on
the rejiorts from Germany that the
price of rye had risen above wheat.
There was u "harp advance of rye on report-
from Germany of the meetings of
local hoards to disaiM the Russian
ukttse, and 100,000 bushels were sold at
it is believed heavy shipments were
necessary to fill the demand caused by
the with drawal of the supply of Rus
sian rye. Sales of wheat here today
wero ovor 0,000,000 bushels. While
wheat and rvo were advancing there
was a sharp break in cash oats, which
declined 5 to 0 cents during the day.
risherineu nn n Strike,
San FitANcthco, Auc. 14. Tho bark
Nicholas Thayer, which arrived last
night from Kodiak with a cargo of sal
mon, brought down 1"G lishermen who
struck becauso the canneries refused to
take all the salmon caught. The men
claimed this was the agreement under
which they wore shipped. It is claimed
by those interested in the canneries that
the agieement was to take 72,000 fish
per day, and had they accepted more
tho over supply would have to have been
thrown away and the canneries could
not stand the loss. The iiohormen state
that the run was a comparatively poor
one at tho beginning of the season. The
strike, it is expected, will have an im
portant effect on the output of the
"Kodiak canneries this season, as but six
teen fishermen remain in that vicinity.
Tho Canneries will endeavor to procuro
lishermen from other islands.

Associated Press Dispatches.
Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 14. Mrs.
Jumes K. Polk, relict of the tenth Pres
ident of tho United States, died this
Mrs. Polk was born September 4, 18015,
at Murfreesborough. She married Mr.
Polk when still m her teens, and lived
continuoaly in Nashville except when in
Washington during tho CongreBBional
career of her distinguished husband,
and whilo mistress of tho Whito House.
For tho past fifty years she lived in se
clusion. President Polk left a very large estato
at the time of his death, but in the
civil war nearly everything was de
stroyed or lost. Mrs. Polk's income
went dwindling down until a half uozen
years ago, when she found herself well
nigh penniless. When a bill was intro
duced in Congress to grant the widow of
President Lincoln a pension of $5000 a
year, it lacked ono vote in the Senate to
securo its passage. That was tho vote
of Senator Jackson, of Tcnnesseo. Ho
offered to vote for tlio bill, providing it
was so amended as to givo an annual
ponsion of $5000 to Mrs. Polk and the
widow of President Tyler, as well as
Mrs. Lincoln, and the bill became a law.

New Yoiik, Aug, 14. Although no
official statement has been made regard
ing the action of tho conference of tho
Union Pacific directors yesterday, it la
generally believed that Alexander E,
Orr, ex-president of tho Produce Ex

of F. L. Ames. It ia also reported that
Mr. Orr has been made chairman of tho

Copyright 1891 by New York Associated Press.
London, Aug. 14. If Mr. Balfour had
not obtained the assent of tho leading
members of tho cabinet to his Irish
Local Government Bill before announc
ing it, a rupture in the government and
a split in the party would seem inevita
ble. The draft of the bill has never
been beforo the regularity constituted
A committee have been working on
the bill for oightcen months, and the
ignoming of the conservative chiefs close
ly in touch witli the rank and filo of tho
party, baa added to tho general discon
tent. No unionist section thoroughly
endorses Balfour's outlined measure
Tiio Spectator, a lending unionist or
gan, in its issue tomorrow, will put tho
position of the Liberal Unionists straight
in denouncing the bill as a Home Rule
measure in disguise
Tho Nattonal ubtener, a leading op
ponent of Tory opinion, attacks the min
istry as becoming a Liberal Unionists
agency. Among tho ministerial groups
only the GoBchcn-Chamberlain set can
be said to cordially support Mr. Balfour.
Strong as this group are, they are likely
to bo forced eventually to bow beforo
tho Tory prejudices, and either present
tho amended bill to suit the Conserva
tive idem or withdraw it at tho risk of
disaffection in tho cabinet on the eve of
a dissolution of Parliament.
Tho report of tho labor department
of tho Board of Trado is now watched
with keen interest. In connection with
tho McKinley law, the report says:
"The labor market is in a disturbed
condition, A demand has fell off in fillip
building, engineering and iron and steel
trades. In spite of tho shrinkage trado
in iron and steel prices arc steady. This
is due to the fact that raw matorials are
high when compared with other periods
of decreasing trade. Coal continues to
be maintained on a high level. This is
partly due to good wages paid colliers,
whose powers of combining prevents
loworing wages, and restricts the out
put and thus maintains prices.

The prosperous career of the Trench
mine, under its present lessee, will be
brought to an end in about a week.
Tlie closing down of any mine in the
vicinity of a town is to be regretted.
The famous Blue Nose mine, (which
is, correctly speaking, the Home Again)
is again to resume operations. It has
been leased for two years to M. A.
Hoover and Cap Coy.
The chloriders on the Hermosa havo
had their last 300 tons of ore run
through the mill, which will now start
up again on the same qualtiy rich
under tlie supervision of Mr. Finley.
He now has several men prospecting
the mine with good results and it is to
be hoped that tho success will be per
manent. Tlie Mowry mine forges ahead quietly
with twenty-live men on the pay roll.
They are now preparing for their new
hoisting works. The old dump is prov
ing a small bonanza to Mr. A. A. Mc
Donald who wa9 long sighted enough
to buy the lease. He has seven men
at work and makes regular (shipments.

Tho naked philosopher of Tombstone

Tlie Star lias more than once referred
to the importance of organizing agricul
tural avid horticultural societies in every
county in the territory, and holding fre
quent meetings at which they
could exchange experience in
all matters pertaining to farming
and Iruit raising in Arizona.
Such institution would do much to ad
vance the farmine interests of the Terri
tory, and many failures in the raising of
farm products would be avoided by
farmers availing themselves of the ex
periences of those who had been suc
cessful in their experiments, Had
such an organization been in existence
during the last ten years the raising of
fruits and all the various kinds of farm
products which are now only being
raised successfully, would have been
productive industries years aco, instead
of now being in their infant state.
From the Uuachuca Sentinel, Aug. 8.
Tho issue of the order to furnish only
one spring wagon to a post is a wise
and economic measure, especially for
the frontier posts, away from rail-roads.
It provides a constant picnic for Hua
chuca ; with the railroad station seven
miles in one direction, the post garden
seven miles in the opposite direction,
with no means of transportation,
public or private, to either places, it
creates a contented nnd consoling state
of mind in the garrison. The jolts of
an escort wagon turns our fruit into
marmalade ana j.un, our eggs into ome
let, anid rechurns our butter. It will
conduce to the health of the garrison
for it encourages us all to become
pedestrians. The glow will come again
to tho cheeks ot our wives and children ;
relaxed muscles will be retempered and
good apetites will be restored and so
peace and contentment will fill our
homes. WhonTshall wethank for these
