The city bakers have reduced the size of their loaves, asserting that It Is Impossible to give the same weight as formerly. There are some stocks of wheat in the hands of large farmers here, but not sufficient to bring down the price which Is steadily rising. The price of corn is also rising, the advance being over 60 percent as compared with the prices of August. This causes much hardship among the poor.

A telegram was received here today by the captain of the Corrigan fleet that No. Ú, the steamer Progress, which has been missing four days and was feared to have been sent to the bottom by the storm during the past several days, had arrived at the Soo late Saturday night.

No marine disasters have been ported to the life saving station Cleveland during th' Correspondence Morning Journal. Washington. Oct. IS. The most Important event of the week from a local and even national point of view has. been the order by the president changing the civil service rules and making It possible for the heads of departments to discharge a govern ment employe peremptorily and ilnal ly, provided the inefficient v of such employe shall come under the person al knowledge of the head of the do parlment. Heretofore it has been nec essary when a superior officer desir ed to discharge an incompetent em ploye, to give him due notice, with a written statement of the cause of his discharge, and also an opportunity to reply ami protest against the dis charge. The order of the president It wiil be seen, has a tendency to place the government departments upon business like basis, giving the manager or "boss" tT you please, the right to discharge peremptorily those whom he. knows to be inefficient. No busi ness bouse or organization can work economically without such power and there is no reason why the greatest of all business houses or corporations should be embarrassed by an Inability to get rid of Idlers and shirks. There are over twenty thousand government employes in Washington, and it may be said thai nearly the entire city Is dependent directly or Indirectly on the government, and this order has pro duced uneasiness, not to say conster nation in many households.

Petersburg and rhe lialtlc provinces. Though the government has ordered the railroad battalions of the array to proceed to Moscow and take -the places of the strikers for the purpose of re storing traffic, the revolulii lists, by a sudden and unexpected blow have shown their ability to lay their hands on h throats of the nation's commer- ial life. The employes of four railroads struck today, and the only lines run ning are the Nlcolai road to St, Pet ersburg and over the Wind an and Ry-bint-k road to Higa. other Baltic ports are open. Traffic Is at a stand still on the Kazan line and on the line to Varoslov and Archangel.

The city Is already feeling the effects of a milk and meat famine, and a few days' continuance of the strike will cause serious em barrassment and even suffering to the nonulatlun.
