WEDNESDAY, JULY 12,18»9. OFFICIAL FAI»*R OF CITY AND COUNTY Republican authorities continue to disagree as to the amount of money it cost to elect Mr. McKinley. Their fig ures vary all the way from 33,000.000 to $50,000,000. llanna publicly admits the payment of 53,000.000. John Sher man says that he understood it was £5, 000,000. Grosvenor puts it at 315,000, 000. Hut, no matter what the sum was it came largely from the trusts, the money trust included, and the amount so advanced was a great investment for the trusts. They never did and never will make another contract as ad van tageous to them as the one they mad« in 18U6 with llanna. The New York World has made a calculation which Bhows that 1U trusts control the lives of no less than 17,000, 000 of the people of this country. This of course does not mean 17,000,0(X) workmen, but means workmen and the members of their families depend ent upon them. Here we have conditions where a few men, less prob ably than 200, have at their fingers' ends the weal or woe of upwards of ono fourth the inhabitants of the entire country. Such conditions bode evil, but we presume that the trusts are en joying no privilege not purchased and paid for when they contracted with Mark Llanna. McKinley's Versatility. President McKinley can turn things around and shape his conclusions to correspond with his desires about as easily aB any public man in the country. Here is and example of hiB versatility: On April '24, 1R90.

The office boy for the trusts has let out the fact that the octopus simply winked the other eye when it heard that Alger waB to fight it. 4' General Otis a Failure. If General Ottia is responsible for the manner in which affairs have been conducted in the 1'hiiiipines he is an all round failure in everything, except in the manufacture of false and mislead ing reports. According to his bulletins he has been whipping and chasinc Aguinaldo and his men nearly every day for the past four or live monthp, but a close analysis of his chasing calls to mind the Btory about how a boy chased a bear around a tree. It would have been honester, and far more in keeping with American methods to have never established a press censorship at Manila. Thn American people can not long be de ceived by manufactured statements, and sooner or later the whole truth will be known. John T. McGutcheon, the Chicago Rocord correspondent sent a long state ment relative to actual conditions in the I'hilipines to Hong Kong, where Otis has no control over the telegraph lines, and from there the statement was telegraphed to the Record on June With. Mr. McCutcheon gives General Otic' review of the situation aB follows: Matters are moving on prosperously and the Filipinos are Rick and tired of the war. The insurgent army is re presented as a pack of brigandB under robber chiefs, and these leaders tire said to be quarreling among themselves be ing unable to hold their forces together much longer. They say that the war would be brought to a close promptly if the wet season would hold oil a little longer. They say the number of troops now at hand iB siillicient for every pur pose. They Bay that business is im proving and peace returning in spite of Aguinaldo and his men. They say that the scattered forces of the insurrection have been deprived of resources and that the insurgent leaders, acting only from motives of Belli8h personal ambition, keep up their spirits merely in the hope which comes to them from the anti an nexation sentiment expressed in the United States." The correspondent then gives what he terms the situation as it is. lie says: "So much for the military view. The oilicers in the field know that the Fili pino troops are aggressive and full of spirit. The thoughtful men in Manila know that the rigid press censorship and the Washington bulletins do not in the least strike terror to the bosom of Aguinaldo and bis men. Theoutlook at the present time is more gloomy for the speedy ending of the war than ever be fore. The plan of making raids on the country and then withdrawing the troops again, leaving the natives who have shown them friendship to be ter rorized and prosecuted by the returning insurgents, is proving harmful. It alienates the entire population, thus strengthening the insurrection." The insurgents still have a good or ganization, and their resources are not materially impaired. The failure to sweep the fertile rice country above San Fernando to the coast has left im mense resources in the hands of the enemy. Therefore they can continue war indefinitely while left in the pos session of this valley and of the import ant ports of the iBland. TOWEB, HILL. W. J. McKnany is the possessor of a dandy new surrey.

FOR HA WKEYE FOLKS STATE ITEMS WHICH WILL BE OF GENERAL INTEREST. Sioux City, la., July 10.—The local authorities are taking extraordinary precnutions to prevent further IOBS of life in the Cnmerer-Johnson feud, which culminated last week in the death of John Camerer at Brown's Lake, twenty miles from Sioux City. Camerer and Chris Johnson, a Dane, and a neighboring farmer, originally quarreled several weeks ago in the course of a discussion of the relative merits of their respective countries. Ccmerer was of a violent temper when intoxicated. Last Thursday he drank too much and opened lire with a shot gun from his own dooryard on John son's house. One of his shots smashed a window and narrowly missed Mrs. Johnson. Her son, Albert, answered the bombardment with a weapon of his own, and Camerer fell dead. His sons immediately announced their intention of taking up the quar rel, and would doubtless have done so but for the arrival of the officers. Young Johnson was arretted and brought to Sioux City, and his parents accom panied him on the plea that they were afraid to remain near the Camerers. The latter was forcibly prevented from following the Johnsons here to avenge their father. If Johnson is acquitted fhey will be still further incensed, and a lierce light is feared on their return home. Throe Iowa Itoyfi Drowned.

The body of Ilarbaugh was recovered, but the other two are still in the river. The boys are all sons of farmers living south of town. IOWJI'H ITulied Ohiitttlan JParty.

The following resolution was adopted: "We believe in direct legislation of the people, and In order to make a government—a gov ernment from God through Christ—we should be governed in all things, law making included, by the standard: 'What Would Jesus Do?'" Iowa In Need of Labor. Clinton, la., July 6.—That there Is a scarcity of laboring men in Iowa is again proven. For the past few days M. Sullivan, who has a contract to do some grading for the Northwestern Railway company at Odebolt, has been in the city trying to hire men with teams. He offers $3.50 a day, yet has been unable to secure but little help. He advertised in the daily papers for men and teams, but all appeared to be busy. It is an unusual thing to go over 100 miles to secure help at such tempt ing wages and then be disappointed. Novttl Award of Damages. Des Moines, la., July 8.—Walter O. Clark was awarded 9855 damages against Edward Dicks in the district court Thursday. The damages was sus tained by Clark through drinking milk from a cow rented by Dicks. Clark, in the first place, sued for $5,300, and then during the progress of the trial in creased his claims to $15,000. The in crease in the damage claims was the result of testimony given by his physi cian. He said Clark Is in had condi tion, and is liable to die. It is sup posed the cow has tuberculosis.

Houston, Tex., July 6.—A corre spondent Just returned from a voyage through the Hood districts, says: "The half has noi been told of the havoc wrought. The disaster is so appalling tliut description is not possible. After fell is iiood will come sickness undoubt edly and what a week ago was the fair est part of Texas, is now almost a God-forsaken wilderness. The waters of the Brazos have for six days cov ered Its valley to a depth of trom six to thirty feet. Where a week ago there were on every baud fields of cotton and corn and thousands of acres of watermelons and canteloupes, today there is slimy mud over all the vege tation, and carcasses of cows, mules, pigs, dogs and cats, mayhap humanB, for many are missing. Our party left Bryan at sunrise, going to the Nava soto bottoms and to a pofnt about three miles from Millican. Everything Uuder'Watar. "Here we encountered everywhere an overflow from the Navasota which spread out fuliy two miles on either side of the Houston and Texas Cen tral track. Everything is under water from two to seventeen feet. It looked on all sides like a great lake and the water was so high that for a vast area it completely submerged the telegraph and telephone poles along the Une. In truth, portions of the Navasota bottoms are even now a perfect sea, extending four or five miles wide at certain points. I saw hundreds of houses there totally submerged and as many more were swept from their foundations and destroyed. The planters of the bot toms are still moving their help and whatever is left of thcirestock to places whore they can be cared for. They are nobly helping each other and taking refuge wherever they can, some of them seeking safety on house tops. All the planters stated that the outside world has no conception of the floods or losses incurred by the d£* struction of crop, stock and building!}. Nearly every planter has built boats and sent them through the flooded dis tricts to render assistance to the people and if possible save some of their drowning stock. Over 600 Miles In Length. "The flood district has a length ot over 500 miles, a breadth ot probably fifty miles and in all this vast space damage incalculable has been done. The loss to life will never be fully known, perhaps the bottoms were thickly settled, mostly with negro ten ant farmers among these has been the greatest loss of'life. To show the damage done the following estimates have been made by men who are in a position to know: Lives lost, from 100 to 300 IOBB to farmers, Including crops as well as live stock, from $6, 000,000 to $15,000,000 damage to rail roads and to country bridges, $2,000, 000 to $4,000,000. These estimates are taken in the whole area. It is known that more than sixty people have met their death that many bodies have been recovered It is not believed that all of them will ever be recovered. Death of Robert Itonner. New York, July 8.—Robert Bonner, editor, churchman and lover of fine horses, died at his home, 8 West Fifty sixth street, at 7:40 o'clock at night. He was 78 years old.

PAGUtt. that Fague committed suicide, as a bot tle containing poison was found in one of hit coat pockets. Lieutenant Pague was formally dis missed from the army Jan. 2, 18DG, in conformity with the order of the presi dent approving the findings of the court-martial before which he was tried. Oct. 3, 1895, Samuel F. Pague of Company F, Fifteenth infantry, then stationed at Fort Sheridan, shot at Colonel Crofton three times. Two bul lets pierced the colonel's overcoat and ttie other went wild. Pague Had llceu lirlnklng. The evening before his assault upon Colonel Croften he appeared on parade and was under the influence of liquor. He was offensively courteous to the colonel, and even went so far as to of fer him a cigar while he was reviewing the parade. Colonel Crofton ordered Lieutenant Paguo removed to the hos pital, where he gave orders to have him confined indefinitely. In some way Pague escaped about 4 o'clock the next afternoon and went direct to his home. He entered the house and found Colonel Crofton talking to Mrs. Pague. According to Colonel Crofton's state ment, he had heard of Pague's escape and had walked over to his quarters to learn if he had gone there. He was asked Into the parlor by Mrs. Pague, and there it was that the lieutenant found him a few minutes later. Colonel Crofton told the lieutenant he would have to return to the hospital under arrest, when Pague drew a revolver and, aiming It at the colonel, pulled the trigger. There was the look of a wild man in Pague's eyes, said Colonel Crofton afterward. Ruithed Upon Dl» %tiailaiit. The weapon missed fire and the col onel rushed at Pague and pinioned his arms, while he wrested the revolver from the subaltern. The gray-haired commander left the house with the weapon, intending to summon the of ficer of the day and the guard to place Pague under arrest. Mrs. Pague tried tb quiet her husband, but he managed to get another revolver from some un known source and reached the porch Of his quarters as Colonel Crofton reached the sidewalk. He raised the revolver and fired at the aged com mander three times. Mrs. Pague was behind the lieutenant and gave a cry of warning to the colonel, but did not reach her husband until he had shot twice, and then struck down the arm supporting the revolver. Two of the shots passed through the overcoat of the colonel, while the third buried it self In the ground at his feet. Before Pague could fire again Colonel Crof ton, who never lost his cool-headed ness, was upon his assailant, and other officers came to his aid. Il«tnlRtied from Service. Lieutenant Pague was placed under arrest and ordered confined to the guardhouse in a solitary cell. That aight Post Surgeon Girard examined the prisoner and pronounced him vio lently insane and ordered him sent to the hospital. A court-martial was or dered by the department commander fend the result was that Pague was found guilty of assaulting a superior and was ordered dismissed from the ferylce. This finding was approved by the president and Jan. 2, 1896, he was formally dismissed from the army. Meantime, Mrs. Pague went cast and procured a divorce from her husband He followed her east, but failed to ef fect a reconcilintion and subsequently returned to Chicago, where he has in dulged in liquor to excess.

Chippewa Falls, Wis., July 10.—A des perate attempt was made by three men to hold up the limited passenger train on the Chicago, St. Paul, Minne apolis and Omaha railroad, running between Duluth and Chicago, near the village of Chctek, Barron county, thir ty miles north of this city. The train was fired into three times. Two bul lets went through the windows of one of the coaches and lodged In the roof of the car. Two women were struck in the face by broken glass, and an other. Mrs. J. W. Sherron, a resident of Cadott, Wis., had one eye cut In a ter rible manner. It is thought that she will lose the sight of the eye. Another bullet went through the en gine window and barely missed strik ing the engineer. The engineer opened the throttle wide, and although mora shots were fired at the train, none struck it. All the passengers became panic-stricken and the conductor with difficulty restored order. The sheriff of Barron county was notified by wire from here, and with a posse of fifty men has gone to the scene of the at tempted hold-up to capture the bandits.

Paris, July 10.—Emll Zoln has sent the following signed dispatch to a New York newspaper: "Positively I will not write of the Dreyfus case for any newspaper what soever—at least not until the coming trial is over. What J, had to say I have said. I consider that I am no longer needed. I withdraw. "1 learn that a man in New York loasts that he has a contract with me to write a play about Dreyfus. An other man talks of my making a lec ture tour through the United States. Not Aiitlioi-t/.i-d l'ul»ltaliotiM. "1 learn, too. that certain newspa pers have recently published articles signed with my name and are an nouncing that they will publish other articles by me. All such statements are absolutely impositions. I have never authorized these statements nor the publication of these articles. When I raised my voice for Dreyfus 1 merely desired to rally the defenders of Jus tice then busy elsewhere to draw at tention to a crime the accomplishing of which was not to be tolerated. Moral ld**a In Polltlcx. "I am glad I did it. Because the agitation probably saved an innocent man. Because it proved Invaluable in educating the masses. Because this revision marks the entrance of the moral idea into politics, where prin ciple is too constantly sacrificed to im mediate expediency and mutual tolera tion. Such a sacrifice, in the long runv is ruinous to any nation. 1 am glad I did it. Should occasion arise 1 should enter politics again. In llamlH of Iteilor Leader* "Now, however, my ideas on these subjects are In the hands, of better leaders of men than I am. These leaders are amply able to make the Ideas to fructify In this beloved, gen erous France. Having no doubt these Ideas will bear fruit In America, too, I cannot Bee how any articles, lectures, especially how any bad melodramas I could contribute to the discussion would help the good work. Therefore, as despite what has been said I have none but a literary ambition I now re turn to purely literary labor." M. I) AM II. IS DISMISSED. Governor of Devil*. I.land Dl.clplln.dfbr HU Hdraocutlon of DrityruN. Paris, July 10.—By a decree of U. Decrals, minister of the colonies, M. Ia Soucas has been appointed command ant of the penitentiary establishments at the lies du Salut, replacing M. Dan iel, who is called to other functions. This formula "called to other func tions," says The Figaro, is generally UBe'd to designate the disgrace of a functionary whom there is no Intention of further employing. M. Daniel, it will be remembered, was the director of the penitentiary and the guard of Dreyfus, who at the very moment when the court of cassa tion ordered by unanimity a revision of the trial, sent a report to the ad ministration of the colonies that called forth a cry of reprobation by the whole press, and In which he attempted to af firm Dreyfus' guilt without other argu ments than those which he drew from the attitude, physical aspect and occu pation of the prisoner. Think They Will win the Cup. Southampton, July 10.—Yachting clr cles in the Solent were never more ex cited than now over the prospectB in the forthcoming race for the America cup between the Shamrock and the Columbia. The Shamrock took a trial spin Saturday, and when it was over member of the crew said to the cor respondent of the Associated Press "TJie Shamrock will do what she is built for, aud will beat the Yankee. She sailed admirably, without a hitch, and answered her helm to perfection, which is one of the greatest consid» tions. We are going to win. hut it is Impossible yet to judge of the yacht full capabilities." No eworlhy Oocurreno*'- St. Petersburg, July 10.—The Bus slan papers devote much attention to the telegrams exchanged between Em peror William of Germany and Presi dent Lou hot of France. The Novoe Vromya says: "It is a noteworthy oc currence and President Loubet may re joice at something like a fortuitous Kronstadt having taken place during his government." The paper adds that Russian diplomacy has by no means been taken unawares, but had made no slight effort to bring about such meeting. The Herald says the matter is the subject of sincere congratula tion. lu-llneH to Arbitrate.

Why the Famous Firm of Arbucklc I r«i. Control th« Bulk of the Coffee Trade. It is estimated that there are llfty million enf* fee drinkers In America. We have loug since passed the mark of beiug the largest coffee con sumers In the world, one-third of the entire cof fee grown being used in Ameriea This propor tion has been steadily growing since 1801 viu it the total amount of colTee imported was mil) 79,000 tons. From Brazil. Peru, Java aud Suinatru. Ceylon. India Africa, the Philippines, and the islauds of the tropical seas, bugs, bales and barrels pour Into New York city every year by the hundreds of thousands From New York they are distri buted to all parts of the country. But the greater portion of the coffee Imported Is retained In New York by the famous Arm of Arbuckle Bros.—the largest coffee dealers In the world. They buy more than all othor dual urs combined, aud the name Arbuckle has be come synouytnous for Immense dealings iu the favorite breakfast beverage. This has givon them great prestige among coffee growers in every jiart of the world and as large buying al ways makes for good buying, it is not surprising that Arbuckles' has become famous as the standard of coffee values, a standard no other house has been able to reach. MIlttoDS of homes in every sectlou of the coun try to-day use nothing but Arbuckles' coffee. Tne test of experience has taught the careful housewife that her faith uot only means mouey saved, but that she IH supplying the best coffee that money can procure for the coffee drinkers of her household. One Immense advantage possessed by Ar buckle Bros, is that of belug able to deliver the coffee berry to the cousumer with all its delight* ful aroma and tlavor intact. This they do by a process, ttie patents of which they exclusively hold, covering the many little pores of the berry thereby holding in its goodness. The Ingredi ents used iu the process are eutirely wholesome aud nothing deleterious Is used to mar the deli cacy of llavor or taste. Part of the success of Arbuckles' coffee has been due to the generous aud unique system used t3 popularize It. Iu each package of the coffee there Is a list of articles. With each package in which the list is found the purchaser buys a definite part of some article to be se lected by him or her from the list, subject only to the coudltion that the slguature on the pack age Is to be cut out and returned to Arbuckle Bros. Everybody should see this list. Horses Wanted. A few good horses for eastorn markets, must It* sound and in good condition. Enquire at my place on Union street In Manchester. 39tf T. W.
