WATEETOWIT. 'WTSCOSTBZS. We are sorry to hear that Buffalo Bill is having a demoralizing effect upon the English youth, and that a number of boys, heavily armed with revolvers and bowie knives, havebeeu arrested as they were about to leave England to fight Indians in Boston. It is time that Buffalo Bill should come home. Owing to rapid and cheap transpor tation there is less danger of famine now than in the olden times. Even a shortage in any special farm product in one state or nation is soon relieved by the surplus crops of another. Thus Germany is shipping to this country immense quantities of medium beans, and Manitoba is forwarding large sup plies of potatoes to Chicago. Notwithstanding the embargo placed by Germany on American products, and other senseless embarrassments to trade, in order to protect, its farm ers from the Colorado potato beetle, yet this insect pest has arrived there in full force, and, in fact, worked seri ous damage to the German potato crop durirg the pa,st season. The phylloxera is also reported as very destructive in Germany. The wrought-iron pipe manufactur ers have apparently concluded that this is a good time to form a trust and put up prices. The commodity in which these gentlemen deal is not as widely used as sugar and some other of the articles controlled by combines. Nevertheless, if the wrought-iron men are wise they will go slow in increasing the prices of their wares. The people of this country are watching the trusts with a good deal of vigilance just now. The announcement that the Impe rial Bank of Germany has refused to lend money on Russian securities will probably make the peaceful war which has been waged for a year or more be tween the two countries assume anew phase. If Russia finds that it cannot secure sufficient money in the Eu ropean financial centers without the aid of Germany, the Russian tariff discriminations against the Kaiser’s domain will undoubtedly be lessened. But if, on the other hand, Germany’s help is not deemed essential, the Mus covite commercial restrictions against the Teuton are likely to be further in creased . A Boston autograph collector re cently gave to an Eastern paper for publication some of the favorite mottoes of well-known men, written by themselves. Among the number was this from Senator Hoar: “Life is neither a pain nor a pleasure, but a serious business which it is our duty to carry through and to terminate with honor.” No quotation marks appear, and it would naturally be taken a? an original sentiment. Mr. Hoar’s fine motto was, in fact, extracted from a lecture delivered by Herbert Spencer in New York during his last visit in this country. This fellow Dhuleep Singh, who is tryingto foment insurrectianin Indias and is posing—at long range—as “Sovereign of the Sikhs and Implac able Foe of England,” is singing a different tune from that of former years, when he lived in an English palace on a pension of $75,000 a year granted him by the English gov ernment. He use! then to chuckle over the sharp bargain he had made, and say how much better off he was than he would have been had he never been molested by the English in India. “I’m not the son of Runjeet Singh at all,” he would say, “but am the illegitimate son of his wife and a Mo hammedan servant. The Sikhs all know this and never would have let me rule over them.” The latest estimate of the wealth of the United Kingdom is $43,600,000,- 000, which is an average of about sl,- 245 for each man, woman and child in that country. In aggregate wealth the United States is now far in ad vance of any other nation in the world, although in its per capita pos sessions it is still behind Great Britain and Ireland. The relative gain of the two nations in the past ten years, however, makes it probable that even in wealth per inhabitant the United States will lead the world fifteen or twenty years hence. Of course, prop erty is much more widely distributed in the United States than in Great Britain, and the average holdings of what are technically called the middle and lower classes are far greater here than there. The following figures will give an idea of the development of the pe troleum industry of Baku. In 1882 the Trans-Caucasian Railway trans ported 3,100,000 poods; in 1884, 5,700,000 poods; in 1885, 9,100,000 poods; in 1886, 15,800,000 poods, and during the present year the figure will probably reach 18,000,000 or 19,000,000. The oil is shipped abroad in wooden and tin vessels, which are manufactured at Batum at the works recently purchased by Baron Roth schild. These works turn out daring the year sufficient vessels to contain over 5.000,000 poods. Too cost of packing the petroleum is 42 copecks per pood, or slightly over the v<ilue of the oil itself. A pood is equal to thirty-six pounds avoirdupois. The taik about the subsidies of Gieat Britain to its shipping has grown wearisome, says the New York World. Properly speaking, Great Britain does not practice a subsidy system. To all the vessels carrying mails during the present fiscal year to America, Africa, Asia, and the islands of the Pacific the sum of £592,149 will be paid, and part of this will be repaid by foreign governments. This is pay for mail service and comes un der the post-office business. Nor is it excessive pay. Great Britain pays £BO,OOO, or $400,000, for the carriage of its mails to the United States. Wo paid $287,927 for transatlantic ser vice last year (eastward only), and most of it went to British boats. Did we “subsidize them?” This is not the kind of subsidizing the advocates of subsidies are asking for. Thp: reply of Mr. Gladstone to the Radical clubs in regard to the occu pancy of Trafalgar Square for public meetings in defiance of the prohibition of the Crown officers was what might have been expected. The Radicals evidently believed he would sympa thize with them in any action they might take against the Tory officials, but Mr. Gladstone planted himself squarely on the laws and advised them that “until a decision can be had it is the duty of every citizen to re frain from all resistance to the decis ion of the executive Government, which is clearly entitled to administer the laws according to what it may be advised is their true construction.” since Mr. Gladstone’s reply the high est law officers of the Crown have de cided that the parks are the property of the Crown and that enjoyment of them by the people is subject to the Crown’s consent. Mr. Gladstone, however much he may sympathize with the people, will abide by this de cision. He has no defense to make for law-breaking, and those who are ad vising a contrary course, like the Pall Mall Gazette, are dangerous counsel ors. . CALLS FOR THE HI LILIA. Striking Miners Use the Torch in the Pennsylvania Collieries. Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 19. —A special disnatch to the Evening Bulletin from Wilkesbarre says there is great excite ment among the people of Hazleton this morning. The in cendiary with his torch is abroad. At 5 o’clock this morning two large coal breakers were set on fire. One of the burned breakers was at Drifton. It was owned by Coxe Bros., and was one of the largest structures of its kind in the lower coal field. It was valued at $100,000; the insurance is $27,000. The other breaker was situ ated at Newback Mountain and was known as Newback Mountain Colliery No. 2. The loss is $50,000; insurance un known. Both breakers burned about the same time. This is the third break er burned within a week. Now the in surance companies are getting alarmed. The companies say that riot is now run ning mad among the destitute and hun gry strikers. Asa last resort in order to compel the operators to come to time, the strikers, it is believed here, set to work to burn the property of the companies. Both breakers burned this morn ing were operated by “scab” labor. This is what makes the belief strong that the structures were set on fire by the strikers. The strikers deny that they had anything to do with setting the buildings on fire. The excitement is at fever heat at Drifton. The companies have tele graphed to Gov. Beaver for militia. The strikers threaten to fight the militia if they put in an appearance. SENATOR HAWLEY WEDDED, The Ceremony Performed this Morning at Philadelphia.

WA YNE, An Indiana City Imperiled by Drought and an Aldermanic Fight. Fort Wayne, Ind,, Nov. 18. —The city of Fort Wayne, with a population of 40,- fX)O, seems to be about to experience the horrors of a water famine. Because of the long drought the water in the sup ply basin, as well as the small streams that contribute to it has so failed that not enough pressure is giv en to the mains to operate the elevators in the hotels and other tall buildings, and their use has been aban doned.

Chicago, 111., Nov. 17. —Over one hun dred guests occupying the six floors of the Saratoga European Hotel in Dear born Street were aroused from their beds shortly before 2 o’clock this morn ing by the ringing of the electric tire alarm in their rooms. Smoke was pour ing through the halls and creeping in at the transom. Women and men fled into the street clad in their night clothes. The clattering of the fire engines aroused the occupants of several hotels in the neighborhood, and the excitement became intense. The fire started in the kitchen of the Sarato ga restaurant on the first floor and spread throughout the building. Half an hour’s hard work subdued the fire sufficiently to permit a search of the rooms. It was at first believed that some of the guests had been caught in the fire, bur none were found. About a quarter of 3, after several of the engines had been dismissed, the fire broke out afresh on the top floor and in a short while the entire seventh, story was ablaze. The building was again flooded with water, and from this and smoke most of the damage will accrue. At 3 o’clock the fire was entirely unoer con trol. The building is owned by the Cham bers estate and is damaged to the extent of perhaps $12,000 or $15,000. The res taurant is gutted and the furniture al most entirely destroyed, entailing a loss of at least SB,OOO. The damage to the hotel furniture is about SB,OOO. Strike of Texas Switchmen.

A dispatch of the 20th from Bridge port, Conn., says: “The building of Bar num & Bailey’s “greatest show on earth” was entirely destroyed by fire this evening. Thousands of people were drawn to (he spot by the alarm bells. In less than thirty minutes the big building, which was (300x200 feet and two stories in height, was entirely consumed. The first intima sion of the tire was given by the roaring of the lions and tigers, which teemed to realize the impending danger. Next the elephants struggled in their chains, but in an incredibly short time the flames spread from one end of the huge structure to the otiier. There were six watchmen employed on the premises, but they were helpless to check the fhimes. One of the men was in the horse-building when his lantern exploded igniting the hay and straw. Five of the watchmen have reported, but one is missing. The upper portion of tire building was tilled with hay and all the paraphernalia of the great show. Before the tire alarm ceased sounding, the whole building was en veloped in lire and no one dared to ap proach, being fearful of the crazed ani mals. Three elephants were burned up and thirty-six broke from their fastenings and dashed through the sides of the burning building. Their roars and trumpetings and sounds of torment were terrific, Six elephants and a large hip popotamus rushed about the streets, presenting a sickening appear ance. Their sides were burned and great pieces of flesh, a foot square, fell off. Thirty elephants and one large lion made their escape and have started across the country toward Fairfield and Easton. Great alarm has seized a great many residents of the West End and they have taken refuge within their houses, with windows barred. William Newman, the elephant trainer, is out of town, and the keepers were not able in the excitement to herd the frightened animals. In the horse room were all the ring animals, trained stallions, ponies, etc. These were all burned. In the upper rooms were the tents, poles, seats, harness, etc., for the entire show, and these too were all de stroyed. In the cat room were the birds, monkeys, three rhinoceroses, hy enas, tigers, lions and all the menagerie, which fell a prey to the flames. So rapid did the flames leap across the main building that the firemen made no at tempt to save it, but turned their efforts upon the chariot buildings and car sheds, which they succeeded in saving, but the heat was sc intense that this was accom plished with the greatest difficulty. The total loss is estimated at $700,000, upon which there was but SIOO,OOO insurance. Before the building went down Bar naul's agents were busy making ar rangements for anew lot of attractions to supply the loss. Mr. Brothwell, Mr. Barnum’s Bridgeport agent, stated that the show building would be rebuilt, but not in Bridgeport. The great show will probably go to Jersey City, where bet ter railroad facilities can be had. A later dispatch says the watchman making his rounds discovered the fire and started to give the alarm, when some unknown person hit him on the head with a blunt instrument felling him to the ground and cutting a number of severe gashes in his head. He staggered to his leetand gave the alarm, enablingthe oth er watchmen in the building, who were preparing for bed, to escape. * One of the three elephants burned was the sacred white elephant. The lion which the police attempted to kill at the time the fire broke out was afterward found in a barn devouring a cow which he had killed. He was shot. The fire is now out. Tiro A.CUES OF ItTINS. Fire Destroys a Railway Plant, Throwing 500 Men Out of Employment. Cincinnati, 0., Nov. 18. —At half-past 2 o’clock this morning a fire started in the carpenter shop of the Cincinnati Southern Railway, at Ludlow, K}\, and spread with great rapidity owing to the lack of water and the fact that Ludlow has no fire department. The immense car and machine shops, covering two acres of ground, were totally destroyed, together with all the tools and machinery, and a large number of cars and material. The round-house caught fire and it was at first thought to be doomed, but by the efforts of the employes the building was saved. Among the losses are a Mann boudoir ear, a pay car, a private car, two Pullman cars, three passen ger coaches, seven flats loaded with coal, and twenty-five new freight cars. About 500 employes will be thrown out of employment, and it will require a long time to rebuild the burned property. The loss cannot yet be fairly stated, but exceeds $200,000. Ludlow is a small village on the Ken tucky side of the Ohio River, opposite the western part of Cincinnati, and is mainly depend nt on the Southern Railway shops for employment for its inhabitants. Late estimates of the total loss make it $175,000. It is fully insured in two London companies. FEAR OF A COAL FAMINE. Pennsylvania Mine Representative An nounces that the Crop is a Failure. Philadelphia, Nov. 18. —The general sales agent of the Reading Coal & Iron Company has issued a circular to the effect that that concern had no more coal to sell for outside shipments. At the office of the company it was stated that there was absolutely nothing upon the wharves at Port Rich mond and that although the mines were producing and shipping at the rate of 25,000 tons per day, it was impossible to secure any accumulation of stocks. The retail yards are in many instances bare of supplies, but it is declared that there is no danger of anything like a coal famine. A PACIFIC' STEAMER BURN EH. The Astoria Burned, But Presence of Mind Prevents Loss of Life. The Astoria steamer Telephone burned to the water’s edge at Portland, Ore., at 6 o’clock on the evening of the 20th. She was on her regular trip from Portland with 150 passengers. Just as she approached the city fire was discov ered on the lower deck, just forward of the engine. The boat was running at such high speed, that in less than a moment the whole alter part was enveloped in flames. The engineer shouted up the tube to Capt. Scott, who was at the wheel: “The boat’s afire.” iScott made a sharp turn, ran the boat full speed in to the bank, and every man, woman and child escaped except one drunken man who was badly burned and will proba bly die. The oss is placed at $45,000; insurance $50,000. The passengers and crew lost all their effects. RESIGNED IX A BOOT. President Grevy’s Cabinet Disgusted with the Financial Policy. Paris, Nov. 19. —Soon after the cham ber of deputies met to-day the Extreme Left moved an interpellation ot the government on the question of its do mestic policy. A motion was made by the ministry to postpone the deh-ite. This motion was rejected by a vote o 58 to 242. Prime Minister Rouvier imme diately announced the resignation of the cabinet. The motion for an interpellation of the government was made by M. Clemenceau. Premier Rouvier de manded that the debate on the subject be adjourned until the 24th inst., in the interest of the measure for the conver sion of the pubhc debt. M. Clemenceau said it was a singular method of reassuring the holders of public funds to tell them that they could live in peace until the 24tb and to prom ise that there would then be a crisis such as had never before occurred. The public, be declared, bad too long awaited an explanation. There was practically no gov ernment. The ministry was not in condition to guide a Republican policy. Parliament was abandoned to the direc tion of the Right. The law officers of the state and the police were in conflict and the administrative disorder was complete. The division on the government’s pro posal to adjourn the debate was taken at the conclusion of M. Clemenceau’s speech. Upon the annoucement of the result of the vote the Chamber ad journed until Monday amid great excite ment. Subsequent to the adjournment of the Chamber, the ministers held a confer ence, after which they proceeded to the palace of the Elyeeeand placed their resignation in the hands of President Grevy. Paris, Nov. 19.—The Journal des Debuts says to-day that the fixed inten tion of President Grevy is not to resign. He does not admit that parliamentary pressure can enforce a president's resig nation. Such a state of things, he holds, would be subversive of the constitution. His resignation would create a mis chievous precedent, as his successors would thereby be hound to resign every time public opinion was against them. It is believed that only M. Graynon, the late prefect of police, and M. Wilson are implicated in tne late scandal. SLAIN BY A REROUTEJI. A Newspaper 31 an Shoots and Kills an Assailant. Lexington, Ky., Nov. 16. —Thomas Green, of Mavsville, and Lew Baldwin, of Nicholasville, met in this city this morning at half past 11 o’clock and Green killed Baldwin in a shooting af fray. is a correspondent ot the Comrner ;ial-Gazette, and some months ago wrote communications con cerning the conduct of the elec tion in Jessamine County, charging Baldwin and others with certain unlaw ful acts in the conduct of the election.

Green then drew and fired, two of his shots striking Baldwin in the left shoulder, one of tuem ranging down and cutting the aorta.
