I Cleveland, ()., June 15. — Nearly 5.000 people assembled inßeyerle's park in the southern part of the city today to see a man jump from a rope stretched across an artificial lake. When the jumper made his descent a crowd of people on a rustic foot bridge a"bout ten feet above the ground along the face of a bluff, made a rush to where he struck the water. The bridge collapsed and the mass of timber and people went down on the foot path beneath, which was crowded with sight-seers. At least twenty-five persons were injured more or less seriously. Eight of them had to be taken to the hospital and two will die. STRUCK OIL. How an Impoverished Church Raised Its Indehtedness. Pittsburg, June 15.—Three months ago the Forest Grove Presbyterian church at Chartiers was a modest little affair with a debt and meagre attend ance. Some of the elders, after a hard fight, succeeded in getting a permit to drill an oil well on the premises. Oil was found in abundance, and yesterday the church sold out bodily* to the Standard Oil Company for $92,000. Labor I'niou Factions. New YoKK,June 15.—At a meeting of the Central Babor Union last Sunday the socialists and conservatives had a row, in which the latter prevailed, de ciding to exclude socialistic press re porters. The socialists held a meeting this morning and decided to withdraw from the Central Labor Union alto gether and form anew central body, un less the obnoxious resolution was re scinded. They were better disciplined for fight at the evening meeting than the conservative element. A tierce war of words occurred, and when, after a long scrimmage, the conservatives found they could do nothing, a motion to ad journ was pronounced carried by the chair. The socialists, immediately upon the withdrawal of the conservatives, continued the meeting, restoring the socialistic labor press to representation. Christian Kudcavor. St, IjOvis, June 15. —The sessions of the Christian endeavor societies were brief today, consisting of addresses, music and religious exercises. The closing session of the convention was held tonight.

June 15.—Otto and Herman Boita, aged 12 and 15, respectively, left Bake Front park today, and started across the net-work of railway tracks be tween it and the lake. Suddenly a pass enger train coming at a rapid speed at tracted the attention of the boys, who stood still on the track, apparently pet rified with fear. The engine blew its whistle, and the throngs of people in the park shouted, but the boys did not move, and before a hand could be lifted to save them they were struck and killed. Fatal Fight at a Picnic. Elmwood, Ohio, June 15.—A free light at a picnic given here by a pleasure club from Cincinnati resulted very seriously this afternoon. It started with a fight between two drunken men, and before peace was restored two men had been fatally shot, three seriously hurt, and a number of men and women painfully bruised in the rush to get away from the fight.

A Struggle for Precedence in the Order of Legislation in the Senate Probable. Forecast for House and Senate. Washington, June 15.—The general debate on the silver question is to close by the present order in the senate at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon. When this matter is out of the way a struggle for precedence is probable. Senator Alli son says he will ask to have the legis lative, executive and judicial appropria tion bill considered; Senator Piatt wants the bill to admit Wyoming taken up, and Senator Frye will press the shipping bills. If the Wyoming bill is taken up, it is understood the Democrats will offer a substitute to admit Wyo ming, Idaho, New Mexico and Arizona in a body. By the middle of the week, the Republican members of the finance committee ex pect to have the tariff bill ready. The feeling prevails that the debate oh the measure will not begin until some of the measures above referred to are disposed of. The remaining appropriation bills are to be vigorously pushed in the house this week. The civil appropriation bills will be followed by the Indian appropri ation bills and national bankruptcy bill. The election committee wish to call up the case of Chalmers vs. Morgan. The committee reports in favor of the Demo cratic member, and it may act as a soft ening prelude to the angry debate on the national election bill, which is ac pected to follow. Wives Who Read Greek. 11l Cambridge, some ten years or so back, the regulations by which fellow ships were forfeited on marriage were relaxed, and a considerable number of fellows shortly married. Quite recently a lady living in Cambridge and associ ating with precisely those husbands and wives, said to me : "I can't say that I know one unhappy marriage among mv friends here." But then, in the majority of these cases the wives are highly cultivated women, in the truest sense the equals of their hus bands. At this stage I may per haps step a little out of the main line of my argument to point out in what way, as it appears to me, a high stand ard of education among women affects their position with regard to marriage. It makes them undoubtedly more in dependent of marriage, and at the same time raises their standard of marriage. It makes them unwilling to marry men distinctly inferior to them in education or understanding, and it also, I quite believe, makes them less attrac tive in the eyes of such men. In short, it diminishes slightly the probability of a woman's marrying at all, while it diminishes very greatly the probability of her marrying unsuit ably. A student of a ladies' college, sum ming up the general results of her edu cation, said to me: "I don't exactly see why learning Greek should make one feel it impossible to marry a man one did not respect, but it seems to amount to about that." I thought, for my part, that this whimsical testimony was the highest possible tribute to her collegiate training.—[London Fortnightly Review. Tho Sameness of Society. Society in its upper circle is pretty much the same everywdiere. At the Pappenheim-Wheeler wedding in Phila delphia, the other day, it hung out of the windows, stood on the fences near the church and on the backs of pews in side the edifice, and jostled the bride on her way from the carriage to the sanctu ary. It was a very select affair, only 1,500 invitations being sent out to "our best people," but so many of these peo ple claimed admittance for their cousins, aunts and neighbors on their own cards, that the church was packed to suffoca tion, and the elite could hardly get its breath. No gieat harm was done, how ever, for the "police management was of the best," and everybody got away with their lives and most of their clothes.

A Party of Teutons Tackle the Australian. The Dusky Pugilist Speedily Puts Them to Flight. A Fatal Fracas in a Wood-Choppers Camp—Little Boys Play with Matches. One Fatally Burned. Associated Press Dispatches. | San Fbancisco, June 15. — There was a free-for-all light tonight at Joe Dieves's, three miles south on the San Leandro road, near Oakland, in which Peter Jack son, the colored pugilist, played a prom inent part. Jackson was in the barroom with Dieves and his son, when about a dozen Germans,who were returning from a picnic, entered. They were under the influence of liquor, and one of them, after vainly attempting to pick a quarrel with Jackson, grossly insulted him. Jackson knocked him down and the man's friends took up the fight. Jackson was aided by Dieves and his son, and the three managed to put the' crowd to flight. Sheriff Hale was noti fied of the trouble by several men who demanded a warrant for Jackson's arrest, but they concluded to wait until morning. Jackson says he tried hard to avoid trouble, but was forced into light ing by insults from the crowd. miSON DIRECTORS. I'iirchaKiug Water Rights for the lone Industrial School. San Francisco, June 15.—The State prison directors held an informal meet ing today to complete arrangements for the purchase of lands and water rights for the building of the Preston industrial school at lone, in Amador county. The conclusion was reached to have Messrs. B. and M. Isaacs execute a deed to their water rights, perfect their bond of in demnity and submit them to the attor ney of the board for approval, after which the money will be paid them. The same process will be gone through with in the case of the purchase of the land from the lone Coal and Iron Com pany. The cost of the plant is as follows: Cost of land, $0,1)00; water rights, $45,000; reservoir, $15,000; total, $00,900. The state, in its appropriation, al lowed $100,000 for the purchase of land, water and the erection of the buildings, and maintenance of the school for the first year, thus leaving in the neighbor hood of $90,000 for buildings. WOODCHOITERS* FRACAS. One Man Killed and Another Seriously Wounded. Santa Ckuz, Cal., June 15.—A row occurred at a woodchoppers' camp about live miles above Boulder creek this afternoon, resulting in the death of one man and serious wounding of one other. From the meager details to be gained by telephone the cause of the fracas cannot be ascer tained tonight. The man who was killed was Peter Brumhardt, a cousin of the Wielands, of San Francisco. Bud Mann, a woodman, was wounded, but, it is believed, not seriously. The men at the camp were mostly Italians. The sheriff and coroner have repaired to the scene of the tragedy. PLAYED WITH MATCHES. A Little lioy Burned to Death Through Innocent Mischief. San Fbancisco, June 15.—This after noon two little sons of Michael Kirby were playing with matches ia a dry goods box in a stable on Castro street, when the hay caught (ire. The elder boy ran and told his father about the fire, not mentioning his brother, whom he left in the box, and whom he went back to rescue. He was unable to get him out of the box, and then told his father. It w£fs then too late, as the father could not reach the box for the flames. The fire department extinguished the flames, but the boy was dead. He was about years old. Not Enough Money in Sight. Sacramento, June 15.—The tip was given out yesterday that there was to be a prize fight earl}' this morning at a resort on the Riverside road, and quite a crowd assembled to witness it. The combatants were Jim Hall, an ebony skinned bruiser, and Ed Cuffe, who was lighting with Tom Avery in San Fran cisco when the latter died in the ring, some months ago. Five rounds were fought between tnem,when Cuffe refused to go on because there was not money enough in sight. A Saloon-Keeper Drowned. Stockton, June 15. —Robert Pinkney, a saloon-keeper, was drowned in Stock ton channel, opposite the steamboat landing, early this morning. He was to be one of a fishing party and got into a small boat to paddle across the channel. He lost his balance, fell in and was drowned before help could reach him. His body was recovered.

She left her husband a week ago and engaged a room on Geary street. She took the poison early yes terday afternoon, and the doctor could not save her. Suicided by Poison. San Fkancisco, June 15. —Louis D. J. I Solscher, a German, aged 40, suicided iby poison last night. He was a book keeper, but being unable to find work, he became despondent. His dead body was found in bed in his lodging-house this morning. His wife is in Tulare. Free Wool Demanded. Boston, June 15.—A memorial in favor of free wool has been sent to the Senate finance committee by the Wool- Consumers' Associrtion. It closes thus : "As all the wool grown in tlve world is now wanted, the American grower could hardly be injured by a readjust ment of values. If, at first, his product should fall slightly in price he would be compensated soon by a larger and more certain demand from stimulated and in creased manufacture. The halfbreed mutton-sheep wool, in warp, works ad mirably with rejected wool fibres and Montevideo fleeces in filling. Thus the Button flocks would be stimulated through the importation of free raw ma terials, and the American consumer of woolens and worsteds would get better fabrics at prices generally lower."

HIS DUTY OUTLINED IN A COLLEGE SERMON. Professor C. S. Walker's Discourse to the Graduating Class at the Massachu setts Agricultural Cdlloge. Amherst, Mass., June 15.—The sermon before the graduating class at the Massa chusetts agricultural college was deliv ered today by Professor C. S. Walker. The topic was: "The Duty of the Edu cated Farmer." Professor Walker said: Heretofore in all parts of the world the farmer has been no match for his adver sary. He never held his own against the soldier or priest, against the politi cian or statesman. In ancient times he was a slave; in the middle ages a serf, l-i the nineteenth century'he is a slave, serf, peasant or proprietor, according to location. The American farmers, as a class, are face to face with a crisis. They have subdued a continent and furnished raw material for our factories, bread for the operatives, and manhood for our civilization. They sustained the nation's credit with their hard-earned dollars, rescued endangered liberty with their conscien tious ballot and defended time and again the stars and stripes with their loyal blood. Vigorous in body, strong" in character, striking in individuality, lov ers of home, massive in common sense, fertile in resources, devout believers in providence, the farmers of America will never allow themselves to be over whelmed by the fate that sunk the til lers of the soil in India, in in Europe. From all parts of this land the farmers are coming together; organiz ation and co-operation are the wonder ful ideas that have awakened them as never before. They are grasping hands with a grip that means something; comparing ways and means, uniting upon ends to be gained. They demand for themselves and children an education equal to the best. They in sist upon a fair share of the profits of American industry, claiming that no state can long exist in which the tillers of the soil bear most of the burdens and share little of the blessings of advanc ing civilization. But they are in danger of making mistakes in the struggle that shall turn back the progress of the movement. They demand leaders; to supply this demand is the imperative duty of the educated farmer. Whatso ever of bodily vigor, mental power and moral heroism the farmer has acquired from his ancestors, the college or uni versity, he will need, that he may con secrate to the great work oi strengthen ing his brethren, the farmers of America, so that they shall ever remain the im movable foundation of this, the only re public whose empire has not been rapidly undermined.

Hamburg, June 15.—The Austrian magnate, Prince Frants Marrdorf, has failed. lie was engaged in wheat specu lation in which he lost over a million florins, besides leaving liabilities of another million florins. The Richest Russian Land-Owner. Gustav Ivanovitch Falz-Fein, the rich est land-owner of Southern Russia, died in Odessa recently. The foundation of his great wealth was laid by the father of Gustav, who came to Russia as a poor German colonist. He began as a plain farmer, and made the breeding of sheep a specialty. In a very short time he con quered for himself the distinction of the greotest Russian sheep-owner, but in his habits and manners he remained always a simple German farmer. The follow ing anecdote, characterizing his plain ness as well as his German sturdiness, is told of him. He was once in the waiting parlors of the Odessa railroad depot, where a young Russian noble man was discoursing aloud on the ad vantages and disadvantages of sheep breeding. The young man made some statements which the German colonist thought proper to correct. But as soon as the latter offered las objections the young noble said: "Do you know to whom you are talking, sir? I am Count N. N., and I have in pastures 60,000 head of sheep. I am entitled to rec ognition as one wdio judges from experi ence." "Just so," answered the Ger man farmer in broken Russian. "But I have 60,000 dogs guarding my herds of sheep. My name is Ivan Falz-Fein." NOTES FROM ABROAD. The Trouble on the New foundland Coast. A Famished Community at Flower's Cove. Mexican Silver to he Shipped to the United States. Iturbide's Counsel Trying to Obtain a New Trial—People Dying of Cholera in Spain. Associated Press Dispatches. I Halifax, Juno 15.— The steamer Harlow, which went to the Bay of St. < leorge, Newfoundland, with a cargo of provisions, etc., was notified on its ar rival at that port by the collector of customs that he would not permit it to land any goods; that the people had re fused to pay customs duty to the New foundland government. The Harlow consequently proceeded on its voyage up the Newfoundland coast, getting as far north as Flowers Cove, where the people were found to be in a destitute and de plorable condition for want of food. At the urgent request of the local relief committee some of the cargo was landed for distribution. Calling at the Bay of St. George on the return voyage, it was found that the resident and island gov ernments had come to an understand ing, the former agreeing to continue to pay customs duties on the promise of the authorities to consider their grievances. The cap tain of the steamer brought back a letter from Rev. Mr. Howells, of Flowers Cove, giving a harrowing statement of the con dition of his people. He asserts that the colonial government failed to res pond to several appeals for aid made last fall, and for that reason during the long months until the steamer Harlow called, most of the people w ere on the verge of starvation. The people were reduced to such extreme want that they had noth ing to eat but the rotten carcasses of seals, and. many were at the point of death when the Harlow arrived. MEXICAN ADVICES. Iturhldc'g Attorney Trying to Get a New Trial for Him. City of Mexico, June 15.—Sefior Ver dugo, counsel for Lieutenant Iturbide, who was sentenced to one* year's impris onment for murmuring against a supe rior officer, is trying to obtain a rehear ing of the case. Able lawyers say counsel's failure in the first "trial pre cludes a rehearing. El Tiempo and other Conservative organs make iturbide out as a martyr, but a great majority of the people decline to take this view of the matter. It is said that, had he been less defiant, President Diaz would have interfered in his behalf. The gen eral opinion now is that the supposed letter on Which the process was based was not written by Iturbide, but br others, he fathering the responsibility for their work. Iturbide claims other wise, however. Large amounts of silver have been made ready to be shipped to the United States in case the silver bill passes. Letters from Central America to per sons in. this city, state that the Conser vatives will never allow the peaceful establishment of a Central American Union. The government recently granted several concessions for railroads to the Pacific coast, but the general opinion is that none of them will be built. TAINTED MEAT. The Flesh of Lumpy-Jawed Cattle Pre served at Chicago. Chicago, June 15. —With inspectors known to be watching in the slaughter house of Jacob Hess to prevent the sur- ', reptitious preservation of meat of lumpy jaw cattle, the forbidden practice was discovered last night in full blast; so, at least, representatives of the city health department declare. The inference drawn is that the tainted meat, at cheap prices, but all profit, was to be marketed through peddlers, in the artisan district in Chicago. Apparently each ele vator load of meat before being hoisted to the upper floors of the slaughterhouse for destruction in the rendering vats, was for a moment lowered to the basement, and the hind quarters, the must valuable meat, secretly unloaded, after which the ele vator again started upward to the ren dering vats. Just 2,700 pounds of al leged diseased meat were found hidden away in the basement. The discovery was made by city officials, and is being used by them to support their oft-made charge that the state inspectors are re miss, if not corrupt, and that the inspec tion should be done by the city. Deaths From Cholera. Madrid, June 15. —There were nine deaths from cholera in Puebla de Rugat. Saturday seven fresh cases were re ported. Two-thirds of the inhabitants nave tied from the towns.

The school board of Mannheim, in Baden, Germany, claims to have the model common school house of the world. The building has just been com pleted at a cost of $226,000. It contains forty-two ordinary school rooms, two roeni» for drawing, two for singing, two for handwork, a large gymnasium, a hall for public exercises, two meeting rooms for directors, two sets of rooms for servants and four little prison cells for refractory pupils. The materials in the structure are almost exclusively iron and brick. The ceilings of all* the rooms, corridors, and the big hall are of concrete. The floora of the class rooms are of hard wood laid on asphalt. They are supposed to be so constructed as to render accumulation oi dust and the breeding of bacteria impossible. The building is heated by a low pressure steam system. In the basement are swim baths. The boys' bath accommo dates twenty at once, and the girls' bath fifteen. Half of the basement is a huge, bright room, full of tables and chairs. Here in winter 900 poor children will re ceive a half pint of milk and a roll each daily for luncheon. In the ninety winter days during which this arrange ment will prevail, the directors estimate that they will give away 20,250 quarts of milk and 81,000 rolls.—fN. Y. Times. SUNDAY BASEBALL.

The Youngest King. Alfonso XIII., King of Spain, whose full pnenomen is Alfonso Leon Santiago Maria Isidro Paseual Antonio, began his official life at an earlier period than most of his brother nionarehs, having opened the Spanish cortes in person at the sagacious age of 18 months. Seated on the throne of Philip 11. ,in a white frock of priceless lace, he beamed upon the parliament and court, while his tall and slender young mother, Queen Christina, dressed in mourning, stood at his right hand and read his royal speech. In summer his majesty lives in the palace of Aranjuez, embowered in green, and famous for its noble English elms, which the melan choly Philip 11. brought back from England with him after his hateful honeymoon with Queen Mary, and some of which are said to have attained a girth of sixty, eighty and ninety feet. A Stickler For Etiquette. In the insane asylum at Kankakee, 111. , they have what the attendants call a "desirable lunatic." A visitor took dinner recently at one of the tables set apart for "mild cases." During the progress of the meal a patient at another table arose, carefully deposited his nap kin at the side of his plate, and, walking over to the next table, caught another patient with a powerful upper cut under the ear. "There!" he cried, "that'll teach you better than to eat with your knife." In a moment more the aggressor was seized by alert attendants and hurried away to his own room. It was explained that this was his one hallucination. He became wild whenever he saw a man eating with his knife.—[Pittsburg Dis patch. Cleopatra's Hones.
