THE MARSHFIELD FIRE.
Over Three Million Dollar* Loss.
Milwaukee, June 2h .—It is now esti
mated that the loss resulting from the de
struction of the city of Marshfield v. ill
not be less than $3,01X1,000 and may reach
$3,500,000. The heaviest loser is the Up
ham Manufacturing Co., whose loss is ap
proximated at $800,000. Twelve solid
blocks of stores were destroyed. A dis
patch to-night says that the fire burned
until an early hour this morning, and that
but one house remains unscathed. Half
of the population is still there, but are
suffering for the want of clothing. Sup
plies were sent from neighboring towns
that answered the purpose temporarily,but
Mayor Upham telegraphs that more pro
visions must be sent at once or the people
will suffer. The remaining inhabitants are
camping out in the woods to-night.
Owing to the poor facilities for com
municating by wire details are coming in
slowly. It appears that when the fire first
started there was a high wind, and the
Harnes were carried with remarkable
rapidity, seeming almost to leap from
house to house. Twelve buildings were
blown up with dynamite in the vain effort
to check the flames.
Conductor GraysoD, who brought
♦hrough a sleeper from St. Paul this morn
ing on the Central line, says the only thing
to be seen at Marshfied from where the
depot used to stand is a house and an ex
panse of blackened ruins, with here and
there the remnants of a smokestack and
some warped and twisted machinery to
show where the mills stood. He describes
the scene as one of awful desolation,
hardly relieved by the presence of human
beings, as everybody had left or were leav
ing as fast as possible. Yesterday after
noon most of the well-to-do people left for
Cbip]>ewa Falls, and this morning two car
loads of homeless working people were
brought as far as Stevens Point, the rail
way compauy carrying them free. Gray
son describes them as a sorry looking
crowd.
MEXICAN OUTRAGE.
Sufferings ofan American Opera Com
pany.
Sr. Loris, June 28.—A special from
"Wichita, Kas., says: A. B. Bird, with his
w ife and daughter, Lotta, has arrived in
the city, and relates a terrible story of
wrong and suffering endured while con
fined in prison at Del Norte, in Old Mexico,
last winter. Bird was manager of an opera
company, touring in that country, and
while playing in Del Norte the entire
company were arrested upon a flimsy pre
text and thrown into the same prison where
editor Cutting was confined. They were
denied a hearing or trial, and were not
even allowed to see or converse with Ameri
cans, though several tried to see them.
While they were thus confined four mem
bers of the company died of smallpox,
while all suffered from privations and sick
ness. Lately the company were released,
having lost all their wardrobe and musical
instruments. Steps have been taken to
secure redress by placing the matter in the
hands of the proper authorities.
KNIGHTS OF LABOR.
'I lie New Constitution Adopted
Three-fourths Vote.
by a
Philadelphia, June 28.— The returns
from several thousand local assemblies
of the Knights of Labor show that the
new constitution and National Trade as
semblies 1 clause have both been accepted
by a three-fourths vote, and it is probable
that the General Executive Board will
promulgate the new constitution, which
contains many important chinges, about
July 10. The adoption of this constitution
was denied a few days since.
An analysis of the vote shows that hal
of these assemblies opposing the adoption
of the new constitution objected to the
clause forbidding any member or assembly
to sell or give any malt or spirituous liquors
at any meeting or entertainment of the
order under pain of six months' suspension
from the order.
The article upon co-operation was
adopted unanimously. It provides for the
creation and disbursement of the fund to
aid co-operative enterprises.
The new constitution gives the General
Executive Board the power to settle all
strikes and disputes regardless of origin.
Each district, State, National or unattached
local assembly shall be entitled to one dele
gate for each 3,000 members or majority or
fraction thereof. The term of office has
been fixed at two years, the compensation
to be fixed by the General Assembly at the
time of election.
The National Trade assemblies' clause
provides that such assemblies may be
formed upon a favorable vote by two
thirds of the local assemblies of that trade
making the apffiication.

U. P. INVESTIGATION.
Testimony of the Editor of the Omaha
"Bee."
Om aha , June 28. —Geo. T. Crawford, of
Omaha, testified before the Pacific investi
gating committee to-day. He had been
employed during several sessions of the
legislature as a lobyist, sometimes working
in the interest of the Union Pacific com
pany. He had been paid by Attorney
Thurston, but did not know that he had
been working for the Union Pacific. He
had never used money. He had sometimes
secured passes for members and friends.
His principal duty had been to "enlighten
the members," most of whom were sadly
in need of enlightenment. Witness avowed
himself a strong railroad man, and ex
pressed the belief that most of the railroad
measures introduced were pieces of derna
gogism to further the special ends of the
members fathering them.
Governor Pattison again called on the
officers of the Union Pacific to bring As
sistant Attorney Thurston out, the com
mission having beeD unable to find him.
Attorney Poppletou, replying, said the
officials of the company had no control
over Judge Thurston, and his present
whereabouts was unknown. They did not
believe Thurston was concealing himself
from the commission.
Edward Rosewater, editor of the Omaha
Bee, testified as to the interference of the
Union Pacific with politics in Nebraska.
He charges that its employes, who some
times went to the legislature as mem
bers and sometimes as lobbyists,
have corrupted conventions and legislatures
by the use of money. One method of the
company's men had been to hire a number
of rooms at the hotel in Lincoln in which
they and their friends would meet. He
knew of such rooms, one section of
which was called the "oil room. 1 ' At
torney Thurston was in charge of the oil
room and generally had charge of all lob
bying operations.
The witness had no personal knowledge
of money having been paid by the com
pany to inlluence votes, but such had been
the current report on several occasions. At
one time, when there was talk of building
a line to interfere with the Union Pacific Jay
Gould had telegraphed that if Douglas
county, in which Omaha is situated, aided
the new road with bonds he would remove
the Union Pacific shops and offices from
Omaha.
Attorney Peppleton objected to this kind
of hearsay testimony from a man who had
no personal knowledge of most of what he
was stating.
The Commission said they would re
ceive all testimony and note all objections.
They were able to discriminate between
legal evidence and hearsay. At the end of
the session the Commission left for Sioux
City, intending to be in Omaha on Thurs
day next.
Jake Sharpe Dying.
New York, June 28.—In an extra
this evening the Mail and Express says :
It is believed that Jake Sharpe is dying.
The reason he did not testify in his own
behalf this afternoon, as was confidently
expected by every one right aloDg, was be
cause his physicians expressed the opinion
that the strain of a rigid cross-examination,
ect., would result in his death. A reporter
subsequently learned that his physicians
are of the opinion that Sharpe cannot live
more than a week or ten days, and the
least undue excitement would kill him at
once owing to heart trouble. It is asserted
that the scheme under consideration now
is to take the case out of the hands of the
jury by bringing to Judge Barrett a cer
tificate from his physicians to the effect
that Sharpe in all probability would drop
dead in the court room when the jury
brought in their verdict, no matter what it
was. It is thought this would induce the
judge to stop the case where it is.
The Crimes Bill.
London, June 28.— In the House of
Commons to-night numerous new clauses
were proposed k by the Parnellite members
to the crimes bill but all were rejected.
The government protested against wasting
time over proposals which they claimed
were applicable to the common law.
Upon a motion to adjourn the debate W.
H. Smith arose and said: After the dis
cussion of this and the preceding evening
the House would be prepared for the notice
which he was about to give. (Cries of
"cloture'' and cheers.) He would on
Thursday move that at seven o'clock Mon
day evening the resolution on the report of
the stage of the bill be put seriatim with
out debate.
The Standard says : It is understood, on
the passage of the crimes bill, that the
government will issue a special procla
mation declaring the National League in
Claire, Kerry and Cork counties an illegal
association and will also proclaim these
counties and bring them within the raDge
of the secret inquiry and summary juris
diction sections of the act.
Arkansas Assassination.
Chicago, June 28. —News was received
from Ozark to-day of a foul murder com
mitted in Douglass county last Thursday.
Pemberton Hntless, while on his way to
the mill, was shot and instantly killed by
an nnknown assassin in ambush. Sus
picion rests on a man who received a whip
ping by Bald Knobbers last summer. The
motive of the assassin is supposed to have
been been revenge. The greatest excite
ment prevails in the vicinity of the murder
and the farmers are said to be working
crops in squads, no man being willing to
risk himself alone in his field.
Against the Standard Oil Co.
Philadelphia, June 28. —The striking
oil men made a move yesterday which, if
successful, may result in a general strike
of all the employes of the Standard Oil
Company throughout the country. Over
twenty thousand men would be thus af
fected. The strikers held a meeting yester
day, which passed resolations calling on
the manufacturers committee of the Stand
ard Oil Co. to investigate their grievances,
in case of their refusal, appealing to all the
employes of the Standard Oil Co. to come
to their aid.

High Prices lor Money in New York.
New York, June 28.—The reports of
the shipment of $1,000,000 in gold has had
a good effect on the market, and "shorts' 1
generally have been covering. Foreign
bankers report a large number of bills
offering, and a further decline in exchange
rates is considered probable. They esti
mate the shipments of gold from Europe
____ . .. .
in the next ten days at $5,000,000. Money
is still scarce, and cali loans are being
made at rates equal to thirty per cent, per
annum.
Lutheran Synod.
Chicago, June 22. —The Swedish Augus
tane Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran
church of America decided to-day to make
the Augustane College and Theological
Seminary at Rock Island common institu
tions of the Synod and that no conference

cal establishment.

Hattie Flag Order Denounced.
New York, June 22.—The Republican
Club held a meeting to-night, at which the
committee on national affairs reported a
set of resolutions on the recent battle flag
order of President Cleveland. They de
nounce the order as a direct violation of
law and contrary to the usages of nations ;
as an indignity to the soldiers who fought
to preserve the Union, and as a copperhead
apology to the South for the part which
the North took in the overthrow of the re
bellion, and declare as an inference of his
second order that he proposes to have Con
gress consummate the restoration of the
flags. The resolutions were passed with
out dissent, and the committee was in
structed to keep an eye on the Hags.
Civil Service Utiles.
New York, June 28.—The special com
mittee appointed last week to suggest a
modification in the civil service rules fin
ished its work to-day. It was decided not
to recommend a change in the form of ap
plication by candidates, but to recommend
that hereafter all examination papers be
marked np in Washington. That the
marking be done by a board of fifteen
members from the different offices through
out the country. The object in view in
having all examination papers marked by
this control board is to do away with all
opportunity for suspicion of the informers,
such as obtains, in certain localities and
under the present local board, a system
which tends to neutralize the obiects
sought for under the civil service law.
Yale College Course Too Extensive.
New Haven, Conn, June 28.— Hod.
Wm. M. Evarts presided at the Yale
Alumni meeting held to-day. The attend
ance was very large, and unusual interest
was manifested in the proceedings.
Hon. Edward S. Pierrepont, ex-United
States Minister to England, expreased the
opinion that the course laid down by Yale
was too extensive in its acquirements for
the average man. Those who intend to
become teachers, professors aud eminent
scholars should be encouraged to take a
full course, but a student who is looking
forward to a life struggle in the business
world should be allowed to pursue a shorter
route and get at his life work sooner.

Washington, June 28.—Francis Patter
son, of Elmira, N. Y., better known as
"Blind Patterson,■' who recently obtained

was afterxvards discovered, had been fraud
ulently obtained, was arrested in GordoD
ville, Va., to-day. He had $1,600 pension

count of Patterson's pension.

INDIAN LANDS.
Important Test Case to be Brought
Before the U. S. Supreme Court.
Washington, June 28.— Secretary of
the Interior 'Wheeler decided adversely to
the claim of the State of Kansas under the
act of January 29, 1861, admitting her into
the Union, to $43,790, being five per cent
of the net proceeds of the sales of certain
lands made between July 1,1884,and June
; 3,1885,heretofore reserved for the Chenikee,
j
. ,
Indian lands,
Kansas. Miami and Osage tribes. The
Secretary, in this decision, overruled the
former action of the Interior Department,
whereby similar accounts, aggregating over
half a million dollars, have been certified
to and paid to the State by the Treasurer
every year since 1861. It was alleged that
the State of Kansas will probably apply to
the United States Supreme Court for a
mandamus to the Commissioner General of
the Land Office to certify to the claim to
the First Comptroller of the Treasury for
payment, which will raise the question of
the rights of the State in the premises.
This decision will affect all the States ad
mitted into the Union since 1857 having

forms the Collector that, inasmuch as sec

BIG STOCK DEAL.
Hew Gould Got Control of Manhattan.
New York, June 28.—The opening o
the stock market was very exciting this
morning aDd all the big operators seem to
be at war with each other. There has been
no time since the days of Drew and other
old time operators that individuals made
such efforts personally in the Stock Ex
change as at the close yesterday and the
opening this morning. Reading was the
scene of the greatest excitement and the
balls did their best to support it, but the
attacks were too rapid and they were
forced to give way. Manhattan was the
weakest stock. It opened at 1 per cent, off
at 129 There were no buying orders
whatever and it declined 2 per cent, at a
time ami is now off 8 per cent, from yes
terday's close. Pacific Mail is also being
raided successlully by the bears and is now
down to 44'.. The story is that all the big
operators are gunniDg for each other.
New York, June 28.—The Tribune , to
morrow, will publish a long interview with
Jay Gould, in which the millionaire admits
that he to-day purchased 50,000 sharp» of
the Manhattan Elevated stock as an in
vestment for himself individually, because
he thought it a good bargain. He said
there was no change in the telegraphic
situation. He pronounced the general out
look encouraging. The same paper has an
interview with Cyrus W. Field, who de
dined to give the price sold at. He is still
a heavy stockholder in tne Manhattan and
has every confidence in it. The business
outloook of the country is good and there
should be an improvement in stocks.
The Tribune says : The general opinion
is that Field, who has been a bull on the
Manhattan, having advanced it to 170 last
summer, contrary to the wishes of Gould
and Hage, has succumbed to the campaign
against him by those gentleman. By this
transaction Air. Gould secured control of
the elevated road, which Mr. Field has
heretofore held.
New York, June 29.— In regard to the
sale of a block of fifty thousand shares of
Manhattan stock by Cyrus W. Field to Jay
Gould, the Times says: "Jay Gould and
Russell Sage are triumphant. Cyras W.
Field's scalp has been taken. Field made
a brave fight, but did not realize until the
end came that he was to be struck down in
the very house of his friends. The terrific
tumbling given Manhattan stock settled all
questions as to the purpose of the precious
pair, and the convictions thus formed were
made indisputable when early in the pan
icky time of Friday one of Field's personal
brokers had to go begging around the street
for an extension of his contracts. No hint
of this has been public, for had it been an
scenes of
xchange a sweeping panic could
not have been stayed. It is generally the
accepted lielief that Field has been obliged
to seek Gould's favor in swapping a big
block of Manhattan stock for needed
money. Fifty thousand shares of stock it
is said has been given up by Field. The
first quoted price was 125, but before busi
ness closed it generally passed on the Stock
Exchange that Gonld had been obliged to
pay only 90 a share for the five million he
had taken. Probably the average cost of
this stock to Field was close on to 100 per
share.
I nounced during the troublous
the Stock Exchange a sweeping r
Dcntli of the \iulm*h Manager.
Peru, Ind., June 29.—A. A. Talmage,
Vice President and General Manager of
the Wabash railroad, died here this morn
ing of Brights disease coupled with dysen
tery. He had been suffering for some time
and was on his way to Lake Erie for a
yachtiDg cruise, hoping to gain relief. His
wife aud two physicians were with him.
Evasion of the Maine Liquor Law.
Augtsta, Me., June 29.—Gov. Boutwell
has sent a communication to the Attorney ■
General of the State and every county at- |
torney in the State, calling their attention
to the fact that conspiracy exists to evade
the prohibitory liquor law by an unjustifi
able interpretation of the United States
revenue regulations regarding the sale of
liquor in imported packages, and calling
upon them to enforce the law to the fullest
extent.

French Protest.
Constantinople, Jnne26.—The French
government has sent a note to the Sultan
in which it distinctly refuses to accept the
situation which is the result from the sign
ing of the Egyptian convention, and says
that if the convention be ratified France
will take measures necessary to protect her
interests which will be endangered by the
disturbance of the equilibrinm of the
Mediterranean. On the other hand France
offers the assurance that it will protect and
guarantee the Sultan against whatever
consequences may result if he will refuse
to ratify the convention. By so doing, the
note said, the Saltan will strengthen his
friendship betweed France and protect his
country from encroachments and ambition
of England. Upon the receipt of this note
a council of ministers was summoned and
a note to the powers drafted, compl lining
of French interference in international
affairs in Turkey. The note will be sub
mitted to the Sultan.
Treaty Rejected.
London, June 27.—The commissioner

actioa.
