THE SANTA FE PLANS. ?he Meaning of the Colo rado Midland Deal. ■ t Was Not to Crowd the Rock Island Out. he Object Was to Form a Gigantic Railway Trust. . Sharp Move to Spoil the Game of the Union Pacific -Vanderbilt Al liance. \ ssociated Press Dispatches. | Chicago, Oct. 4.—The Tribune says: The purchase of the Colorado Midland . oad by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa > c, appears to have a greater significance : lan has been the general impression. ; becomes more evident every day that was not the object of the Santa Fe, r rather the bankers who control that oad, to crowd out the Rock Island or ly other road which now terminates t the eastern slope of the Rocky H>untains. The impression is gaining strength that the deal was consummated \ ith the view of bringing about the .filiation of a gigantic railway trust, or imbination of all the roads between hicago and the Pacific coast. The rail >ad situation in the west is in a more amoralized condition than ever before, ad unless a pool or combine is speedily • irmed, that will insure the maintenance i high rates, many roads will be pushed > the wall. The Union Pacific, since its liance with the Northwestern, or r ither the Vanderbilt combine, has een encroaching upon the territory •t the Santa Fe and Gould's lines i all directions. It has obtained out ts into Texas, 'both from Denver and maha, and is now extending the Utah juthern from Frisco, Utah, to Mojave, le connection of the Santa Fe with the mthern Pacific. Tapping the latter at gdenjand Mojave, the Union Pacific- C orthwestern combination would stand .vincible and be able to control nearly • 1 the California traffic, by encompass ig an alliance with the Southern I acific. To spoil such a game seems to aye been the object of the Santo. Fe people when they secured control of the ( olorado Midland lines. If they secure le Denver and Rio Grande Western, . ley will have a line through to Salt 1 ake city and Ogden, where they can ■ ;taliate against the Union Pacinc orthwestern combination if the .tter attempts to show fight i Mojave. The issue is nothing more !or less than a test of strength between the bankers, aided by Jay Gould and nearly all of the other western roads, against the Union Pacific-Vanderbilt combination*, and until that issue is de cided, an improvement in western rail road affairs cannot be looked for.

An Awful Plague in a Filthy New Jer sey Village. Hamburg, N. J., Oct. 4. —In this vil lage, with a population of 500, there have been no less than 45 cases of malignant dysentery within the last two months, and many of the inhab itants in a little hamlet near by have suffered with the plague and nine have died. But in Hamburg, where the disease originated, its ravages have been greatest. Twenty deaths have occurred. A doctor says it is • unmistakably a plague of epidemic, con tagious dysentery. Others believe the disease is a species of cholera, such as was predicted would follow tiie general epidemic of "grippe" last spring. There is a foul pig pen in the village on the edge of a pond, and within ten feet of a large cemetery. For years it has not been cleaned out, and offal has been accumulating all this time.

HOPEFUL SAINTS. Revelations Received Direct From Jos eph Smith and Brlgham Young. Salt Lake City, Oct. 4. —The Mormon semi-annual conference was opened today by George Q. Cannon. Elder Roberts spoke of a revelation to come from President Woodruff, and said 1890 would rank as an epoch in the history of the church. President Woodruff then came forward and said the Lord would'nt reveal time, but he had talked twice re cently with Joseph Smith in the spirit, and the purport of it waa that the bride groom was about to mate the bride. He had also talked behind the veil with Brigham Young, and was encouraged greatly. Apostle Richards said the kingdom was.to, advance more rapidly than ever, but the Son cf Man and his angels would not come on earth until Jerusalem was rebuilt. The saints should study the Scriptures more, and then the young men would see visions and the old men dream dreams. Apostle Thatcher advised the saints to prepare for 1891. They had prospered greatly of late, and that made him fearful. "What we need is persecution and plenty of it." He expressed full belief in AVoodruff's conversations with Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. The time is coming when this country will again engage in strife between labor and capital, and the Mormon question will be forgotten for the time, then the people will flee from all parts of the laud to Utah, and the Mormons will welcome them and will establish here a true re publican form of governmentswith dem ocratic principles.

SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1890. THE KAISER'S REALM William's Attitude on the Socialist QHestion. He Feels Confident of His Abil ity to Solve It. Anti-Socialist Laws To Be Replaced by Remedial Legislation. Terrific Storms| in the East Sea Provinces. Lawn Tennis Not a Fit Game for Gorman Girls. Associated Press Dispatches. | Berlin, Oct. 4.—-[Copyrighted, 1890, by the New York Associated Press.]— The lapse of the anti-socialist laws has led to a renewal of the discussion re garding Empeior William's attitude toward the socialist question. The Cologne Gazette repeats that the em peror and all his ministers, with the exception of Bismarck, desired the con tinuance of the special act, and were ready to accept a permanent act in the form offered by the National Liberals, namely: without the power of expul sion, but Bismarck disagreed and the Reichstag in consequence dissolved. The emperor himself, says the Gazette, would never voluntarily have dispensed with the act. At the same time the emperor views the death of the laws without regret, confident of his ability to solve the social problem without them by means of remedial legislation, depriving the party of discontent of their most serious grievances. The tone of most of the socialist meet ings the past few days was one of equa tion, but all were orderly. A great meet ing waa held at the Brock brauerei. The men present appeared to belong to the intelligent working classes. They were accompanied by their wives and families. Several speeches were made. A sheet entitled: "Farewell to the So cialist Law," explaining how Christian ity might have been destroyed in its in ception if the Jewish and Roman author ities had only imitated the Russian po lice and dissolved every meeting of its founders met with a large sale. Herr Bebel declared in an interview that his party would meet the govern ment's remedial bills on their merits. It is notable that at the Berlin elections for delegates to the coming eocialist congressAt Halle, all the men the moderate section of the party. A large restaurant has been purchased at Erfurt, and another with a large hall I for meetings attached, will be bought shortly to assist the propaganda; know ing that the repeal is only an experi ment, the party will avoid giving oc casion for a renewal of coercive laws. The emperor is bestowing especial attention to the schemes which the gov ernment is preparing for the reform of the rural local government, and the national school system, as well as upon the project of direct taxation. The far reaching proposals of Miquel, minister of finance, for the collection of au in come tax, will, it is estimated, raise the amount collected, 25 per cent. The North German Gazette, commenting on the Kaiser's reception in Austria, gives a hint which appears to confirm the renewed rumors concerning a new com mercial treaty with Austria. The fact that the Austrian ministers were not present at the railway station in Vienna to meet the Emperor AVilliam on his arrival there, is much commented on in connection with the Dreibund, but it is officially declared that their absence had no political significance. Emperor Wil liam having ignored him last year, Count yon Taafe purposely absented himself. Terrific storms are reported in Schles wic and the East Sea provinces. Hail ruined crops and smashed thousands of windows in Elmshorn, which was flooded by. the sea. Numerous houses were unroofed and many inhabitants in jured. At Danzic a tramcar was over turned and several occupants crushed to death. Many shipwrecks attended by loss of life are reported. The editor of the Mayence Yolks Zei tung has been arrested for ridiculing the celebration of the battle of Sedan, and eulogizing France. Cardinal Hergewtothen, the Catholic historian and champion of the Vatican decrees against Dollinger, died today at Meheran monastery. The clergy of Treves have denounced lawn tennis as unbecoming for German girls. FOREIGN MISCELLANY. The French Admiral Concludes a Treaty With the King of Dahomey.

Mayor Pond was lustily cheered throughout his speech, and the remarks of Messrs. Coleman and Waters were also applauded to the echo. From to-night's indications, it is apparent that if Col.

Associated Press Dispatches. I Stockton, Oct. 4. —James Herrington, the land lawyer who was tarred and feathered at Bakersfield, a few days ago, is in the city with his wife. His story is that shortly before he was tarred and feathered he received warning that there was a plot against him. He was arrested at Selma by a deputy sheriff, on a charge of perjury, for the purpose (so he asserts) of getting him back to Bakerefield and in the hands of his enemies. Within a half hour after being incarcerated in the Bakersfield jail, masked men came, entered his cell and tried to overpower him. He fought hard, and one of the men shot at him. The ball entered his side. The man dropped the pistol, and Herrington seized it, but another man stepped on hie hand and he had to let go of the weapon. They then carried him out of town, tarred and feathered him and turned him loose. He traveled fifteen miles in the sparsely settled country, with his feet torn and bleed ing, and finally saw an acquaintance coming along the road in a wagon. This man drove home with him, stopping on the way to get some sacks to serve as clothing. Herrington says he has no idea who his assailants were. The bul let in his side was not extracted until tonight. THE FRESNO 1R IGEDY. Williams' Body Taken to Stockton- Smith's Bad Record.

The remains of the four-monthG old son of Percy Williams, who died last February, were remoyed from a vault at Rural cemetery today, and will also be conveyed to the Laurel Hill vault to morrow.

Smith, however, after receiving the wound disarmed Meech and gave him a terrible beating. He was suspected of being impli cated in the Pixley train robbery, but evidence sufficient "to warrant his arrest could not be obtained.
