The proceedings olltic TrunkiLlneExccutivo
Comraltteo were os follow's:
The CommissloDcr read the following resolu

vVumiea*. The practice of permitting the
Foreign Freight Agents at tho various seaboard
fort# to quote to Chicago Fast Freight Line Agents
hruugb rules from Chicago to European ports
without fully explaining tho division of such rates
ns between tbo rail.and steamship lines, has here
tofore bad demnrollring tendencies so fur as a
sropor maintenance of tariff to seaboard points la
concerned; therefore.
AVsofud, That wo protest against such practice
being continued, aim mat wo urge upon the Trunk
Hies tho propriety of u» imuienlatti withdrawal of
such privileges from their Foreign Freight Agents,
and tho necessity for, allowing through rates from
Ohidugo to foreign-ports to be made only by the
General Freight Agents immediately under their
tonlrol. which through rales shall be based upon
meb inland rates us may he mutually determined
on from time to time by tho Chicago roads.

Nsw York, July 23.—1 n the suit of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee «fc St. Fuul Railway Comoany
against Russell Sage, tried at a special term of
the Common Picas In March last, Judge Van
Iloescn has rendered a decision In which ho
holds the facts alleged In the complaint estab
lished, bat * that the plea of the stntuto of
limitations set up by tbe defendant Is available
and a bar to tbe suit. lie hss, therefore, dis
missed the complaint, except as to a small
claim, In respect to which ho directs u
reference. Tho suit was ' brought to
recover $09,000 lu bonds of the
Company which Sago s . held In 1807
as collateral security to a note of tbe Comoany
to him for $50,000 loaned by him to the Com
pany In January, 1800, and paid in October,'
1807, Put the securities were never returned by
Sage to, the Company, of which he was then
Vice-President. Tho Company asked for an
accounting for tho proceeds of the bonds, and
tbe Interest on them from that time, amounting
to over $100,000; also to recover excessive in
terest paid by the Company to Sage on loans
made by him to the Companv while ho was
Director and Vlco-Fresldoot. Judge Van iloescn
fluds It established that Sago never returned'
the bonds to the Compouy, but converted them
to bis own use, and that he would bo liable to
account to the Company for Ilium and their
proceeds With Interest, but that more than ton
years have elapsed since the conversion of tho
bonds, and that although, during the greater
part of that time, ho was Vice-President and
Managing-Director of the Company In New
York, the suit cannot bo maintained for an ac
counting is to recover the value of Mie sccurl
tits because of tho statute of llmUtllons. So,
by this rule, Mr. Sago will keep the SIOO,OOO so
easily made.

New Youk, July 23.—Reports come In of
mold progress In the construction of the Amer
ican Union Telegraph lines. The Graphic says
the Western Union Is undoubtedly face to face
with mucti stronger competition than it has ever
before met. It Is rumored that Gould has ne
gotiated a heavy loon with the Barium, the
money to bo used In the prosecution of the tele
graph and railroad schemes. While It Is orol>-
ablu ho will seek to effect the loan to enable
him to perfect bis groat schemes, It Is scarcely
likely the public will at present get any definite
particulars from him as to figures. The probability
Is that In cose he does negotiate any loan abroad
it will ho for a much larger amount than
110,000,000. the sum staled. Ills plan ot
combhlallon, In which he has made sufficient
progress to show be Is In earnest, requires the
outlay of a very large amount of csplial, and is
declined to haven most material effect on the
tralllc of those routes grouped umior the head
of trunk lines.

ion is anticipated Wednesday aftoruoou.

Tlic rain of Monday olternooo and night was
succeeded yesterday by a season of as sticky,
muggy,’ and thoroughly exasperating weather
as could very well bo Inflicted upon a race of
poor mortals doomed to labor and persoirc hero
below. The air was >111), the suo shone with
his ardent beams, and humanity was physically
enervated. 4it grow uo hotter, and It
crow no cooler, the atmosphere be

moisture that It failed to absorb
any further. With the descent of the sun m
the west there was a sllcht chance for the hot
ter, though a very slight one it wss. am) the en
tire day, from early morn till dewy eve. was one
of the most uncomfortable, most destructive of
man’s patience mid wpmuu’s resignation, and
most provocative of a strong draught upon all
the natural and artificial cuss-words In the vo

The Cbtcagoß won a gome from Providence
yesterday, knocking out eight runs In Hue style
after having given Die other fellows dye In the
first aud second Innings, non* of them being
earned. Having woo the toss, Capt. Auson
sent the visitors to hat. Hines sent a beautiful
one into centre field, the ball sailing far over
Kernson's hebd. The striker fell at first base,
and was kept there. O’Rourke sent up a high
fly which Quest caught. Ward dumped the

ped It. Yon; scoring on the throw lu from centre
field by Ronucn. Hague’s grounder to Peters
was nicely handled and put to socond In lime to
force out Brown at that base. The throw to
flrst was uot an accurate cue, however, a life be
ing given, McGcarv going to third. Hague stole
second. Mathews hit to Larkin, who again
dodged, and McQoary tallied. Hague also
started for home, but was thrown out by Ram
sou, Mathews golug to second on iliu play.
Hines sent a safe fly over socond base, on which
Mathews endeavored to tally. Qo was caught
between third and homo bases, and would have
been out hod Peters guarded third, Williamson
being engaged in hacking up Flint. A wild
pitch sent the tally In, however. O’Rourke’s
grounder wua thrown wildly to first by Peters,
lllncs scoring. Ward wus llyod by Dalrymplo.
With the score 5 to 0 against them, the home
team went to work and hatted for four rnus, of
which three were earned. Shaffer led oil with a
safe fly to right, aud stole second Just us Flint
struck out. Quest scot thu hall along third
bass Hoc, reaching first and sending Shaffer to

corker over third for one base Shaffer tallied.

and Quest tallied oo Brown’s throw to McUcary,
Larkin getting down In safety. Kcmicn made a
hose bit to centre field, “Terry” going to
third, aud at once 'stole second. Dalryraple’s
soft one to McGcary was muffed, and Uicn
thrown wide to first? the result being that Lar
kin and Rcmsen came home. Peters was out
by Ward to O’Rourke, Dalrymplo reaching sec
ond, and Williamson by Mathews to O’Rourke.
One run was needed to He the-game, and It
wot earned by Bhoffei; and Fllut in Utu third in
nltur, the Lecturer hitting to right Held tor two
bases, and Flint sending him In bv a fly over the
left-field fence. The outs were Anson, by -Mc-
Guarv to O’Rourke; Quest, on a flv to Wright;
ami Larkin, on a foul fly to Hague.
Ward then replaced Mathews ns pitcher, and
the game stood at evens until the Whites catno
to hat In the sixth Inning, when Quest, who
reached lint on Hogue’s bud throw, was sent
homo by Larkin, who hattod the ball far over
llfnes’ head. Flint had already struck out, und
as Rerasen followed suit und Dalrvmple was
thrown out bv Wright, Larkin was loft on sec
ond. Another tally camo to the Whites in the
seventh inning, Williamson securing It. Ho
reached flrsl on a hit to McGcary, Peters, who
had hit safelr for a base, being forced out at
second. Williamson stole second, and. after a
short rest, made a break for third, where he
would have been captured bat for Hague’s mult
of Urowu’s throw. Anson, in the meantime,
had been flyed by Ward, but Bhnffcr brought
the run lu by a base-hit to centre. He stole
second, but was left by Flint’s striking out.
The last run for Chicago was obtained lu the
eighth Inning. After Quest had boon put out
by Wright to O’Rourke, Larkiu invited the same
late, hut was saved by the flrat-bascmon’o
mu If. Remson hit to Hague, who pawed tho
bnll until both Larkin ;aml tho striker were
safe on second mid first. Dolrymplc scut Mr.
Hague another grounder, which ho mulled,
Larkiu tallvlng, although Ramseu was put out
by Wright to Hague while trying to roach
third. McGcary fumbled Peters’ grounder, but
managed to retire Dulrymplc, who made a bold
effort to tally. ,
From the second Inning to tho ninth, Provi
dence was neatly whitewashed, the Adding of
tho White Stockings being very sharp. When
thet came to bat for tbo last time they found
Larkin’s arm Ip a lamo and demoralized con
dition. Ho haaly was It used up Unit Hague
and Mathews got llret ou balls, ‘’Terry ” being
unable to pitch over the plate. Au effort to
substitute Hankipson for him was not success
ful, and after hatblug the injured limb he wont
at it ogam. Hines sent a long flv to centre field,
which Remsca took care of. O’Rourke got In
a “ scratch ” buso-hlt, the ball bounding over
Peters’ head, and on Rumscu’sfuuiblo'Haguo
scored. Ward bit to Quest, who slopped on
second atvl then threw to first, ending the game
with a nice double play.
The Whites did not acoro In the final inning,
Williamson being tho only man to reach first,
which he did ou a safe bounder to tight. Ho
and Anson were doubled up on Uio latter’s bit
to MeGoary. Shaffer was ilycd by York.
Aside from the double plays made In the
ninth Inning, Peters, Quest, and Anson wore
responsible for.a very pretty one in the third
Inning, McGcary mid Drown being pul out ou
the latter’s hit to Peters.

tuout to your correspondent that Is very Impor

whoso Company floats an immense number of
grain and merchandise barges on tho Mississippi
between New Orleans umi St. l«ouis, recently
went to Europe to see what could be none lu
tho way of helping the water transportation
trade from New Orleans to New York and
Europe. Ho had lost heart until the Eads jol
lies became a success and opened up a channel
for largo ships to New Orleans. Hut (bis morn
ing ho received a letter from one of tho chief
engineers of M.Uo Lcamps proposing to build a
canal across Florida. Your corrciponduut then
“How can they construct ill "
“Hy simply constructing it.”
“ Hut they want a subsidy I "
“Not a cent." ...
“The subject has been agitated for many,
many years, umi Congress bos always refused to
grant a subsidy.' l
“ 1 know there bavo been a hundred Jobs be
fore Congress in this connection, but they all
wanted money." I
“Old they ever cot any!" . I
“No. They did not got monov, but they cot !
surveys. The’dovcinmentpaid forsurveys. They
took those surveys umi tuado their estimates.
They propose to make it a private corporation;
Tho money, and there is plenty of it enlisted,
is to come from cupituli-ts in hncbunl and
Franco. Tho project is two years old. Ihe
promoters and capitalists would have been over
to look at it last year but for tho yellow-fever
scare. If there is no epidemic this year they
will bo bore in October."
“ Where do ikey propose to run tho canal 1"
“If you will lake the map you will notice
that on ihu UTI shoulder of Florida iliutiuwuuo’i
Hlver runs uu thirty miles. Higher uu, longi
tudinally, on ihc right shoulder, the tit. John's
itivcr runs down, and thov nroposa to iap > the

There is no trouble about water, ami the great

Icon removed by luipruvvd madilnciy which
will cut a clump and roots m easily and quickly

iDriKTAOts or rni osxxui.
“What Is fbe Advantage of all this!”
“To us, from Sioux City and the Upper Mis
souri ami Mississippi Hirers down ntid arouud
to Charleston, It Is of urcst advantage. The
saving of insurance on every article worth over
eight cents a pound, especially cotton, would
pay the tolls through the canal, ami they tell mo
that the irsflle would eevcral times exceed that
done through the Hue* Canal. My correspond
ent, mind you, Is the best engineer De licsseps
hna on the hues Cnasl work, tmt De Lcueps Is
not promoting this In connection with kls pro
posed Panama Canal.”
“Uovr could such a canal do more business
than the flue* Canal!”
“Hccauae the earing of distance would he
1,100 miles around the dangeroua coast of Flori
da, and It would bring New York and New Or
lesns within three and a half days of each other
by steamer. You hero no Idea of the local busi

shipping from New Orleans to Europe, which,
with the Eads Channel and the easy and
r.ipld canal facilities, would bo largely In
“If I her arc so, why do they not go on 1 ”
“Ahl There Is the point. They arc sure as
to the general idea. They have thu money to go
on with, bat they want to bo aura they will bo
protected In their rights.”
“They would gain their rights by purchase of
right-of-way,—'would they not!”
“ Vos. and as the Government owns most of
the land they want they could probably cut the
right-of-way cheaply.”
“ The State of Florida would encourage by
legislative act any such scheme I ”
“Of course it would, hut they are afraid that
Florida could not protect the lutercsU of the
LulhhTs of thu canal.”
“ What, then, do Uiuv wantl”
“Tiny want the Congress of the United
States to guarantee the protection of the United
States to tlielr property, and theu they will buy
right-of-way and eat the sblu-canal through to
accommodate the largest shins that can gel to
Us mouth in a year and a half from thu turning
of the drat spadeful of earth.”
“Patriotism! These men propose to spend
an Immense sum of money to benefit us, for the
Ohio, Mi-souri, Red, Arka'nsus, and oilier rivers
are uenvfitsd bv soy Increased advantage the
mouth of the Mississippi has, mid ever* heart
lu Uie Mississippi Valley beats proudly In favor
of rapid and cheap water transportation os h
check ou railroad charges. Wo tulnk the canal
would help us, so wc must help the canal. If
It benefits the constructors mid owners, as wo
hope It will, It must benefit us."
“I do not know. They gave mo it rough
estimate and 1 have|forgott«n it. They do not
know. It la enough for anybody to know that
they'hove plenty of money ami that the spade
sinks In the soil the moment Congress will
guarantee protection to this property that
foreigners want to acquire and make valuable.”
Your correspondent Is satisfied that this nllalr
means business. Mr. Rea objected to giving the
names of the capitalists who will semi the en
gineers this October to follow the Government
surveys, but ho says he Intends, as soon ua he
gets time, to give the St. Louis mill New Or

"What Interest have the 8L Louis people In
“What would this cost!”
There has recently fallen Into the hands of
thu editor of the London Figaro the original
agreement for engagement by Robert William
EUiston, manager of the Theatre Ho>al, Drury
Lane, of Julia Glover, The engagement Is for
three years certain, from Juno 23,1522, and Its
terms will afford n lesson as well to modern
dramatic artists as to theatrical managers of
the dar. Mrs. Glover, one of the most cele
brated artists of her Kmc, was paid at the rate
of i.*S fur every six nights. Think of that, all
ye who talk so glibly of the *• palmy days of
the drama”! Furthermore, If Mrs. Glover
dll not play six nights In the week, a
' proportionate reduction was to be made; if she
rom sickness. Infirmity, or other cause, were
unable to fulfill herengugement. she was not to
be paid at all; she was to punctually attend nil
rehearsals, and to speak such prologues and ep
ilogues as she wan directed. Again, If Mrs.
Glover refused to piny any part which was al
lotted to her, she wus to pay dowo to the
manager. In addition to these, there were o
multitude of other fines, recoverable in certain
esses. For being late at rehearsal the fine wus
11a.; for standing on the stage at rehearsal, not
being concerned in the scene, 2s. fid.: for open
ing the stage doufdurlng the performance, 10®.;
for standing at the entrances, not being engaged
In the scene, 10®.; for bring imperfect lo her
part at the last rehearsal, Its.; fur being absent
from performance without lawful excuse, a
week’s salary; for being impeifect in her
part ut performance, a night’s salary; for send
ing an advertisement to u public print by any
other hand than the prompter’s; a week’s salary;
and for taking the prompt-book or the harps!-
chord-book sway from the theatre, 10s. On the
other hand, Mrs. Glover had the privilege of
taking a free benefit at the theatre, producing
any stock piece other than n now piece produced
that season, on payment lo the Treasurer of the
theatre of 200 guineas (I) exclusively of extra
charges for new dresses, copying, printing, ad
vertising, mid supernumeraries; she was entitled
to enter the first green-room, with the privilege
of the front of the theatre, ami had two box
(dross circle) and two gallery admissions—ono
of the mildest species of Hie caque over sug
gested. Altogether, It seems Unit the dramatic
actresses of the present dnv should refect ” the

themselves that they live In thu ago which the
