Thorp, a motorman, was shot by Ira Stansbury in front of the city hall yesterday. Stansbury was in a buggy which he was driving on the street car track. Thorp ran an electric car up behind the buggy and sounded the gong for Stansbury to get off the track. Stansbury was driving fast and refused to turn out Thorp ran his car up to the buggy and bumped it off the track. Stansbury dispas sionately stopped his horse, lowered the hood of his buggy, produced a revolver from under the scat and carefully shot the motorman through the thigh, when arrested by an aston ished policeman. Stanbury was per fectly calm. He said he had as much right on the street as a car, and that no motorman had any franchise to run him down. Stanbury is 77 years old and has been a resident of St. Louis for sixty years. Twenty years ago he was proprietor of the largest saddlery and harness establishment in the city. HAIL AND HIGH WIND.

The European War a Disturbing Factor It Affect the Starkot. Nkw York, April 24. R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "If either Turkey or Greece had been wholly buried in the m!u, markets might have been affected less than by the outbreak of war in Europe. Like fire in the heart of a corwded city, it raised the question whether a general conflagration may spring out of it. To this possibility, and not to the direct influence of either Turkey or Greece upon the world's money or produce markets, was duo the excitement in grain and stocks. As the unknown is magnified American markets were more flighty than European, where the pos sibilities have been discussed and partly discounted for months. The uncertainty remains, and will affect the movement of money and staples until it disappears, creating a larger demand for American products at higher prices, causing hasty specula tive selling of securities at times, but also more continuous buying by for eign investors, and not improbably in fluencing the attitude of foreign powers on questions important to this country. KANSAS WHEAT. Eighty l'nr Cont of a Full Crop Is Frob able Now. Tor-KKA, Kan., April 21. The Kan sas botird of agriculture has issued a bulletin compiled from reports of cor respondents, mainly wheat growers and millers, in nearly every neigh borhood in the state, giving the conditions of the growing wheat on April 20.

The area sown to oats is less than that of last year, and especially in lo calities where the largest acreage is usually found, or the eastern half of the state.

Osman I'asha, the Hero of Plevna, riaced in Chief Command of the Forces 00,000 More Reinforcements Ordered Out Greeks Fighting Desperately. C'onstantinoplio. April 24. That the work of the Turkish troops on tho Greek frontier has been disappointing to the Sultan and his advisers, and that the Sultan has becomo desperate as the result of the unexpectedly formid able resistance of the Greeks was made clear to-day when Osman I'asha, the hero of Plevna, the acknowledged greatest general of Turkey, was or dered to the front as commander-in-chief of the Turkish army, with head quarters at Elassono, and Edliem I'asha was recalled. In addition, Snad Edin I'asha, a general of renown, was ordered to the command of the Turk ish army, in Epirus displacing Ahmed Hifix I'asha, also recalled. Seventy two buttallons of rediffs, or army re serves, numbering 50,400 men, wero also ordered to leave for the Greek frontier at once. It is stated here that one of the Turkish' brigades which had been pushed forward on the plains of Lar issa has been nnable to advance fur ther, owing to floods caused by rain and the consequent rise of the river Salambria. Edhcm I'asha telegraphed, asking for the immediate dispatch of pontoons to enable the troops to cross the river, the Greeks having blown up the bridges. These reports have had a very depressing effect here, when taken in conjunction with the formid able resistance which the Turks have met with around Tyrnavo. Osman I'asha for sometime had tasted all the dishes served to the sul tan and seen that they wero carefully conveyed untouched from the kitchen to his majesty. This is one of the highest posts in Turkey. In spite of tho difficulties encount ered, no doubt is felt among the Turk ish military men here that the Turks will ultimately occupy Larissa, though it is admitted the task will be harder than at first imagined, the government having confidently expected to capture the Greek headquarters by Tuesday morn ng last. Athens, April 24. After a bombard ment of Katriaa. on the gulf of Sulon ica, by the Greek squadron, had put to flight two battalions of Turks and the inhabitants of that place, the Greek fleet landed a detachment and found the Turks had left behind them immense stores of provisions destined for the armies of Edhetn I'asha. These valuable stores had been left unpro tected in the belief by the Turks that a blockade of Greece by the fleets of the powers would prevent the Greek fleet from attacking the Turkish towns in the gulf of Salonica, which are near tho railroad to Salonica, and which have been used as points to land stores for the Turkish army and forward them to the front. The capture of these stores places a serious difficulty in the path of Edhcm I'asha and it is stated here that as soon as the Turkish commander-in-chief heard the news of tho capture of l'latamona anil katrina, he dispatched 10,000 men towards the coast of Mace donia, fearing a flank attack from the Gulf of Salonica. The Greek fleet, in returning from the capture of Katrina, bombarded the post of Litchoro. London, April 'J4. A dispatch to the Times from Constantinople says that while Osman I'asha will take supreme command of all the Turkish armies engaged against Greece. Edhein I'asha will remain in active command of the Eastern army, with headquarters at Macedonia. A dispatch to the Daily News from Larissa, dated Wednesday, says the Greeks are about to assume the offen sive against Vigia and Salonica; that the Greeks have occupied Karya and that the Turks have suffered unex pected severe reverses The Daily Telegraph's correspond ent at Larissa says that on Thursday the Greeks attempted to retake Crib ovali. A long fight ensued, but the Greeks failed, owing to the superior force of the Turks anil their stronger position. The Greeks, however, oc cupy a good position in front of Li garia, where, the correspondent is convinced, they will be victorious. He adds: "I regret to say that the Turks have burned, after plundering, the villages of Ligaria, Karaycl and Meralaria, destroying the churches with dynamite." A dispatch to the Standard from its correspondent at Constantinople says: "The Russian government has sharply ordered Bulgaria to keep quiet; yet Bulgaria has given the porte notice that she will mobilize her troops to day unless the berats (the warrants for five more Bulgarian bishops in Macedonia) and the appointments of Bulgarian commercial agents at I'skub and Monastir are granted."
