Corn in the New York Market.
Associated Tress Dispatches I
Baltimore, July 28.—The steamer Vir
ginia this evening collided with the ex
cursion steamer Louise, upon which
1,500 excursionists were gathered. The
collision occurred off Fort Carroll, about
five miles from Baltimore. It is said the
collision resulted from the efforts of the
steamers to avoid a schooner in tow of a
tugboat. Both vessels were badly dam
aged. Many excursionists are missing
and some are painfully injured. Three
bodies have been recovered up to 11
o'clock. Many others are lost.
The deaths among the excursionists
number as many as live, with a number
-of persons injured. There were no fa
talities on the Virginia. The names of
the dead are: Mrs. Manalia Marshall,
Charles Greenzer, Daniel Kopp, Mrs.
Howard Keyes and Joseph Riegel.
A DYNAMITER DROWNED,
dames Mooney, of Dynamite Fame,
Drowned While Bathing.
New York, July 28.—James Mooney,
the dynamiter, was drowned in the surf
at Far Rockaway on Sunday. Mooney
attained his greatest public notoriety a
few years agt) by an attempt to blow up
the British steamship Queen, while she
was at the wharf in North river.
Mooney was sent to the lunatic asylum.
He was recently released on a certificate
of physicians. Since then he has been
engaged as a book canvasser. He was in
needy circumstances, |and it is a ques
tion whether his death was suicidal or
accidental. Mooney is credited with be
ing concerned in the Clerkenwell and
other dynamite explosions which ter
rorized London some years ago. He was
a man of fine education, and at one
time was secretary of the Irish National
DULL. FEVER RAGING.
A Great Advance in the Trice of Wheat
New York, July 28.—The bull fever
was raging in both wheat and corn all
day long, and both cereals' prices for
options advanced to the highest point of
the year. The advance was not so great
in wheat as in corn. The upward move
ment rests solely upon reports of damage
to crops here and in Europe. Brokers
report that most of the buying orders
were received direct from Chicago. The
total s.des of wheat were 8,520,000;
'orn, »,21(i,000 bushels.
Vonrd of Trade Failures.
Chicago. July 28. —Ernest Hess, a
member of the board of trade since its
formation, failed today. He was short
.2,000,000 bushels of oats, and the recent
rapid rise forced him to the wall. His
liabilities are estimated at $150,000, and
he had about $80,000 up on margins. In
addition to his oat speculation Hess had
sold a line of May corn. It. G. Tennant,
a small trader in provisions was also
forced to order his trades closed today.
The Davis Will Contest.
Helena, July 28.—A photographic
copy of the will of the late A. J. Davis
was tiled in the supreme court today.

ment on appeal from the district court

lanta district, left his home at Sans
Souci at 11 p. m. in his canoe, which
was rowed by a negro who had been a
body servant to George Washington.
As the day was hot Solicitor O'Bryan
reclined upon the stern of the
boat with a silk handkerchief in
his hand, an end of which
was trailing in the water. Feel
ing a jerk, O'Brien Hung the handker
chief inward, to find that he had landed
with it a three-pound trout, which had
attempted to swallow the red end of the
handkerchief. The solicitor at once
went ashore and had a fish fry all to
himself, when he resumed his journey.—

the explosion of a bunch of giant powder

The two Cooley boys will probably lose
their eyesight, while the other" two
suffer from particles of iron that fill

THE WORLD'S FAIR.
AGRICULTURISTS OPPOSE THE
LAKE FRONT SITE.
The Livestock Men .Also Vigorously Ob
ject to Having the Exhibition Divided.
A Single Site Strongly Advocated.
Springfield, 111., July 28.—Today a
circular, reprinted from an agricultural
paper, was placed on the desks of the
members of both houses of the legis
lature and several hundred copies left at
the office of the state board of agricul
ture for distribution. It vigorously op
poses the use of the lake front as any
portion of the site for the world's fair.
A letter has been received from a live
stock paper of Cheyenne, Wyoming, also
protesting against the use of the lake
front, aad adding that the west was bull
dozed at the last meeting of the com
mission in Chicago, but will not be at
the next one. Secretary Shafer, of the
lowa state board of agriculture, has
telegraphed the secretary of the Illinois
board that if the double site is finally
chosen lowa will make no agricultural
exhibit at the fan . Telegrams urging
the state board to do all in its power to
secure a single site have also been re
ceived from other representatives of
Hon. D. W. Smith, ex-president of the
National Cattle Growers and Live Stock
Association of the United States,
and one of the alternate com
missioners, said today the stock
men of the country, with the agricultur
ists, were in favor of a single site, but if
it seems incumbent upon the directory
to use the lake front for a portion of the
site, and the major part of it, in attract
iveness as well as bulk, is situated on
the lake/front with the agricultural ex
hibit, he did not think there would be
any general objection.
The house and senate met this after
noon, but adjourned until tomorrow
without transacting any business of im
Cihcago, July 28. —In response to a
call by the legislature for a detailed
statement as to how they intended to
divide the world's fair between the two
sites, the directors have prepared a very
lengthy statement. Thevsay, notwith
standing the dual site, it must not be
forgotten that the fair will be an en
tirety. It is the intention of the board,
so far as it may be able to do so, to lo
cate the agricultural and stock exhibits
in the same enclosure with the
machinery, state and such other exhib
its as will render that portion of the
exhibition at least equal in general in
terest and attractiveness to the other
portion of the fair.
Concerning the exhibits upon the
lake front, the board contemplates
placing them in the art building,
which is designed to be a large
structure, beautiful in architectural de
sign and finish. Among the displays in
it besides art will be extensive electrical
plants, Turkish, Indian and Egyptian
villages, government departments' ex
Of course, the report says, it is quite
impossible for the board to do more
than generalize at the present time. One
of the reasons advanced for the lake front
site is the fact that the opportunities are
greater in proportion for business men,
clerks and the industrial classes, who
will find their time more severely
taxed in the care of visitors
from all over the world, than at
any other period. Their opportunities
for visiting that part of the exposition
lying more remote from the center of the
city will not be all that could be de
sired, and it is impracticable to keep
open in the evening buildings much re
moved from the center. The lake front
can thus be well utilized in the evening.
Large Seal Catch.
Victoria, B. C, July 28.—The steam '[
schooner Mischief arrived Sunday night
from the Shunigan islands with 13,000
seal skins, the catch of the Victoria
schooners, which have now entered the

REPUBLICAN SENATORS HOLD A
The Morning Sessions Hereafter to Open
at 10 O'clock—An Effort to Be Made to
Ti.-e the Democrats in Tariff Debate.
Washington. July 28. —The Repub
lican senatorial caucus tonight was at
tended by about thirty members.
Senator Sherman presided. His state
ment was that the caucus determined to
fix tlie hour of the mesting of the
senate, after tomorrow and until further
ordered, at 10 o'clock, and continue the
session as long as possible, the tariff bill
alone to be considered for several days,
and then displaced for a time, at least,
by the river and harbor bill. The object
of this policy is to endeavor to force the
Democrats to show their purpose toward
the bill, whether or not it is to be one of
! delay. The Republicans hope to tire
out the Democrats, who are to be left to
do all the talking, except when neces
sary to answer some point. The bill to
transfer the revenue marine will be
postponed till later to get the tariff bill
out of the way. According to all re
ports the election bill wasdiscussed only
incidentally. There was no announce
ment by any senator whether or not he
would support the bill in the senate.
The Postal Telegraph Bill.
At a meeting of the senate committee
on postoffices and post roads today, the
postal telegraph bill prepared "at the
postoffice department was again con
sidered. The provision as to the
eleventh section was stricken out. It
was asserted by Dr. Green, president of
the Western Union Company, in his
argument before the house committee,
that the proviso would operate to shut
out his company from bidding for gov
ernment business, and upon this being
shown to the committee today it was
voted that the proviso be stricken out.
The Treasury Building Afire.
Two electric light wires on the apex of
the north front of the treasury building
became crossed tonight, and burned
quite fiercely for a time. The firemen
cut them, however.
AT THE FIRE'S MERCY;
The Town of Wallace, Idaho, Almost An
nihilated by Flames.
Spokane Falls, Wash., July2B.—Last
night's fire at Wallace, Idaho, almost
annihilated the town. The ruin is com
plete ; not a business house was left
standing. The total loss is $412,000; on
this there is only $88,000 insurance.
The fire started at 7 o'clock in the
Central hotel, and in two hours every
thing was gone. The supply of water in
the reservoir gave out after ten minutes'
work by the firemen, and the town was
left at the mercy of the flames. Every
thing was burned, many men losing
even their overcoats. Antonio De Marco
was burned to death in his brother's sa
loon. Help is already pouring in from
the surrounding towns.
Contributions to "Puck."
As to the outside contributions they
were numerous and bad ; not one in fifty
worth reading. And that one was some
times very shaky as to its humor.
But all that is changed today. A host
of bright young men and women make
their living out of the papers whose un
happy predecessors could not even make
a living for themselves. The literary
j and artistic quality of their work is
: graduated by a far higher stand
ard than the humorists of the cake-of
i soap-pail-of-water variety ever dreamed
of. _ They draw on human nature for
; their inspiration, and they seek for
j humor in the actual life about us. In
: this growth and change lies the promise
jof their performance. There are two
I questions which the editor of a humor
i ous journal has to answer many times :
I "Where do you get all your funny
| things?" and "How do you know that
they are original?"
The answer to the first is simple—from
everywhere. Puck has on its list of reg
ular contributors an ex-army officer, two
grave-stone cutters, a well-known artist,
several lawyers, a church organist, a
house painter, a convict, a college pro
fessor, an actor, dozens of drummers
and three unclassified consumptives—
those three writing humorous literature
from sheer love of it, right in the face of

the Revolutionists Decline to
Associated Press Dispatches. [
Buenos Ayres, July 27, fi p. m. —The
revolutionary movement continues to
spread. The fighting between the gov
ernment troops and the revolutionists
today has been desperate. The govern
ment forces were defeated and a thous
and killed or wounded. The navy has
joined the revolutionary movement. The
insurgent artillery bombarded the gov
ernment house and barracks today. A
twenty-four hour truce has been ar
ranged. The triumph of the revolution
ists appears to be assured.
The Cause of the Revolution.
London, July 28.—A dispatch from
Buenos Ayres states that the leaders of
the revolutionary movement belonged to
that city. They were incensed that the
best positions under the government
were given to men from the province of
Cordova. The dispatch further says
Seiior Roca will probably resume the
presidency, as it is believed that he is
the only man capable of restoring confi
dence. Previous to arranging an armis
tice the war ships, which had just joined
the revolutionary movement,bombarded
the loyalist stronghold.
Severe Fighting in Progress.
London, July 28.—A Timet dispatch
from Buenos Ayres says: President
Celman's police and cavalry suffered
terribly in attacking the civicas and
troops yesterday. The provisional gov
ernment re-opened a heavy artillery fire
at dawn Sunday on the troops under
Vice-President Pellegrini. A terrible
mistake occurred during the fighting.
The eleventh regiment suddenly turn
ing in favor of the provisional
government, approached the artillery,
and before they could make their
friendly intentions known to the insur
gents, they were mowed down in the
narrow street. The minister of war was
wounded and the minister of finance
was taken prisoner. Col. Marmendia,
Major Campis and many other officers
were killed, and the commander of the
firemen was shot by his own men. A
short armistice was field at noon and an
effort was made to stop the butchery.
The armistice lasted one hour. At
1 o'clock the ships began firing on
the government house, Pellegrini having
refused to accept the terms of the pro
visional government. The civica vfhion
seized twenty tugboats and the gun
boats Chocabuco, Mespu, Cannonade
and Retero. The British gunboats
Beagle and Bramble have arrived to pro

A Brief Armistice.
Monday, 9 a. m.—President Celman's
troops have occupied the houses around
the Plaza Mayo, and placed light
artillery in the plaza. The demands of
the civica union have been reduced to
the request that President Celman re
sign. The fleet lies a good way off with
steam up. The armistice has been ex
tended until 2 o'clock.
11 a. m.—President Celman's officials
assert the civicas are treating for sur
render, but this is disbelieved.
3 p. m.—The government troops have
resumed firing. The streets leading to
the Plaza Mayo are blocked with bales
of hay. Celman offered terms to the
civicas, promising not to proceed against
civilians surrendering, and to permit
officers supporting the civicas to resign.
The troops of the civicas show no signs
of yielding. Celman's troops tried to
carry the artillery positions of the civi
cas, but were repulsed with heavy loss.
The whole navy has declared hi favor
of the provisional government. The

that the sacred edifice was no place
for such a demonstration. The
mob thereupon rushed upon the patri
arch, dragged him from the pulpit and
otherwise maltreated him. A body oi
Turkish troops was sent to restore order,
but when they tried to clear the building
they met with desperate resistance.
The mob was armed with revolvers and
spikes and staves, and a bloody conflict
ensued. Four soldiers and three rioters
were killed and others injured before
the mob was driven from the building.

AN ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE
Troops and Arms Being Raised for Gua
temala in the United States—San Sal- '
vadorians Reinforced by Indians.
New York, July 28. —A special to the
Herald from Guatemala via La Libertad
says: An attempt was made Sunday
night to assassinate President Barillas,
of Guatemala, by a native Indian who
was found concealed in Barillas's bed
room, armed with a machete and re
volver. The would-be assassin con
fessed today that he had been
employed by the Conservatives
to do the deed. He gave the names of
Antonio Valenzuela, Dr. Pedro Molina
Floris and Jose Diaz Duran, a lawyer, as
the principals in the affair, with whom
he treated. The cabinet meeting today
was a stormy one and Barrillas has not
yet signified whether he will temporarily
abandon the San Salvador campaign or
not. Disaffection among the troops con
tinues and they have not yet been paid.
Aid for Guatemala.
New York, July 28.—A morning
paper says negotiations were completed
yesterday in behalf of Guatemala for the
purchase of 20,000 stand of arms. It
also says that an army of 3,000
trained soldiers has been tendered
that Government. Consul-General Baiz,
it is alleged, has acknowledged that
offers of assistance have been made. He
said one man, an ex-colonel in the
seventh Missouri infantry, offered to
raise 3,000 recruits in two weeks' time,
and have them all equipped and
ready to sail. He says privates
and officers will be men who have
borne arms and seen a good deal of ac
tual fighting in the civil war. He be
lieves, with 3,000 men who can stand
firm under fire and shoot accurately, he

Enthusiasm in San Salvador.
City of Mexico, July 28.—There is

Why She Is Fashionable.
The idea that ladies who lavish enor
mous sums annually in personal decora
tions dress to fascinate their husbands,
lovers, or man in the aggregate, is a
vulgar error. A fashionable woman is
not half as anxious to win the admira
tion of the men as to provoke the envy
of her own sex. The truth is that gen
tlemen as a rule know very little about
the commercial value of female attire,
and (except when they are called upon
to foot the bills) car* less. An elegant
and becoming toilet, however inexpen
sive, generally satisfies them.
Not so our first-family belles and dash
ing dowagers. Cost is their standard of
excellence in costume. And what con
summate sumptuary critics they are.
No merchant is a better judge of the
article in which he deals than the wo
man of fashion is of all the articles her
sisters wear. With a single side-long
glance, rapid, keen and searching, she
can count up the cost of the habili
ments of a rival in the beau monde,
almost to a dollar. No pawnbroker,
however accustomed to gauge the price
of costly trumpery, could come nearer
the mark. Imitation cashmeres, simu
lated lace and bogus jewelry, however,
vraisemblants, do not deceive her for an
She sees through the cheat as easily
as a money broker detects a counterfeit
of a bank note, and sneers inwardly
at the vain attempt to cope with
her genuine extravagances. She
triumphs in the reflection that all her
splendors are sterling, and that her
"set," sharp-eyed as herself, can dis
tinguish between cheap fine-ladyism
and the ruinous grandeur it is intended
to cope with as well as she can. But
the mole-eyed man—barring a few speci
mens of the man-milliner variety of the
species—sees not the difference unless it
is pointed out to him.—[N. Y. Ledger.
