He doubted if a fair trial could be secured at this time and under the conditions it would*be too dangerous for tiie prisoner to be taken to Evans ville Judge Raseh. immediately on receipt of i lie Governor's order, wired Sheriff Kratz/to return without the prisoner. He said the trial would be indefinitely postponed. In his telegram to Judge Rasch, Gov. Durbin says: "I decline to sanction an arrangement whereby the negro Lee Brown is to be immediately tried at Evansville under the military forces of the State. My in formation obtained from medical officers of the State reformatory is that the pris oner is suffering from severe and possi bly fatal gunshot wounds. However heinous the crime or seemingly clear the guilt, he is entitled under the most sacred tenets of our jurisprudence to a hearing, which he cannot have in the very nature of things until he is sufficiently recovered to make a defense if he has one.” NEGROES SOLD INTO SLAVERY. Former Marshal Telia How He Deliv ered Glennie Helnia Into Peonage. How negroes are sold into slavery in Alabama was brought out at Montgom ery, Ala., in the trial of Fletcher Turner on the charge of holding Glennie Helms in a condition of peonage. .1. F.

He said he made $8 on the transaction. Turner’s check for S4O was produced in court. During the trial it was shown by the court records that Helms' fine had been paid, and thai no imprisonment had been imposed on him, but that had not pre vented him from being sold into bondage. In the cross-examination of Dunbar a statement was produced which he had made to the district attorney in which he not only contradicted part of his own tes timony, but that of many of the govern ment’s witnesses. A letter was attached to the statement to the district attorney in which he (Dunbar) practically offered his services to the government. L. F White of Columbus, Ga., testi fied that he had been employed by Helms’ father to purchase his son’s re lease, which he did for S4B, Turner ac cepting the money.

I PONTIFF SAID TO BE SLOWLY SINKING MONDAY. Condition of His Kidneys Found to Be Bad and He Sees Shadows —Mental Confnsion Appears, with Dizziness— Believed by Stimulants. Monday afternoon the malady against which Pope Ijco has kept up so marvel ous a struggle for nearly two weeks seemed to be making inroads upon his wonderful constitution, enfeebled by his years and greatly weakened by his most recent illness. Two new symptoms that developed caused grave apprehension. Examina tion showed that iiis kidneys were per forming their function less perfectly, and about noon his holiness suffered an at tack of iizzim-ss that was attended with fleeting hallucinations. The dizziness from which the Pope suffered was a kind of mental confusion, during which he seemed to lose con sciousness of his s lrroundings. while he believed he saw a tision. After recover ing somewhat he setd that he thought he saw an undefined shadow moving about the room and slowly approaching his bed. whereupon he became agitated mid called for his valet, Pio Centra, say ing: ''Pio! Piol Who is if? Who is it?” Dr. Lapponi and Centra went to the patient s bed and soon succeeded in quiet ing him. Incidents at the Vatican. At both the Vatican and the house of Dr. Lapponi patent medicines, surgical instruments and apparatus of all kinds have been received, accompanied by as surances that his holiness would recover if they were used according to direc tions. From Vienna came machines tfor producing artificial respiration and for making oxygen. Mgr. Pifferi, confessor of his holiness, felt offended because he was not allow ed to enter the sick chamber. 'He was especially dissatisfied with the attend ing physicians, believing it was because of them that he is excluded. Monday morning lie again asked to be permitted to see Pope I.eo. On hearing the re quest the pontiff said, “When I need him I shall fiend for him,” and Mgr. Pifferi left the Vatican, considering himself an injured man. According to tlie rules for the govern ment of the Noble Guard, one of the principal duties is to watoh assiduously the person of the Pope when his holi ness is seriously ill, even the papal apart ments passing under the guard’s respon sibility during such periods. After IS7O there was a gradual curtailment of ex penses at the Vatican, and this resulted in a reduction in numbers of the Noble Guard, which noav contains about forty men. Not all of these are at the Vari can, owing to illness or other causes, and the work of those on duty is heavy, ns they mount guard, six at a time, for six hours. In Paris 25*5,000 families occupy but one room each. Minneapolis mill dwners will fight the carpenters’ union. Japan's shipyards turned out forty-one steamers last year. Toronto labor unions will elect labor candidates for city offices. Twelve hotels in New York City have more than .TOO telephones each. Cincinnati has raised horse shoeing prices from $1.75 to $2 per set. The wages of the iahorers at the Bethlehem .Steel Company's plant have been increased from $4.75 to $5 a ton. The railroad telegraphers’ union report shows that the organization increased from 10.330 to 25.234 members in the year ended April 30. Louisville master barbers have decided that they will try to close all (he shops on Sunday, and the journeymen are be lieved to be in favor of the move. International Longshoremen and Transport Workers’ Union is now the third largest organization of labor in the country, having 152,000 members. What is said to be a unique strike .set tlement in New Orleans labor history put an end to the sawmill troubles at Lutch er, La., when the strikers went back to work with their demand foy a fen-hour day granted upon the express condition that no union be formed. The unions of butchers at the stoc 1 : yards have donated $1,300 to members in Kansas City who suffered hdM through the recent food*. All additional sum of SSOO has been sent by the inter national organization, and more will be contributed as rapidly as it can be dis tributed. The Porto Rico Federation of Labor has formally requested Gov. Hunt to in vestigate the condition of labor on cer tain large sugar plantations of the isl and. The Federation claims that pov erty-stricken laborers, averaging 40 cents a day, are compelled to accept "chips” instead of money, and to trade at planta tion stores, where inferior and often in jurious goods are sold at an exorbitant price. The Western Federation of Miners, which recently held its annual conven tion in Denver, is said to be the richest labor organization in the world. It has been in existence but twelve years, and has 200 affiliated local unions with about 75,000 members and $3,000,000 in its treasury. It lias secured an eight-hour day for all of its older unions among the miners and smeltermeu in the western country. The Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia are one of the laigest em ployers of workmen of all trade* in this country, or any other, except Krupp's, possibly. So loss than 15,000 men are now under the roof* of the Baldwin works, and the payroll amounts V) $190,- 000 weekly. The capacity of the works is equal to five locomotives daily, but in April la*t 107 complete engines were turned out, with an average weight of 125 tons, and valued at 12,750,000. Manufacturers all over the country seem to be taking the same stand on the question of freedom of contract as they are taking in Chicago. In Pittaburg the International Association of Machinists presented anew agreement to the manu facturers providing that only members of the uni'.in, r those agreeable thereto are to be employed. Tfe manufactur ers objected to this oia"use. and in its place offtred a substitute—“that no per son shall be refused employment, or in any way discriminated against by either party on account of membership or non membership in any labor organization."

The crowds were im mense. while the decorations were only surpassed by those on the great Vic torian jubilee. The meeting of the two rulers was a brilliant spectacle. The hot afternoon sun poured through the glass roof of the station upon the waiting guests, nil of whom inside the roped inclosure on the PRESIDENT LOI’BET OF FRANCE. platform were in uniform or in court dress. King Edward, accompanied by the Prince of Wales, appeared on the platform just as the president's train slowed up. The King wore a field mar shal's uniform, with the grand eordon of the Legion of Honor, and the Prince of Wales appeared in the uniform of his rank ns admiral. , The King stepped forward as the President alighted and shook hands with him repeatedly. He then introduced the Prince of Wales, the Duke of C .uiaught, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of Fife, Premier Balfour, Foreign Secre tary Lansdowne, Field Marshal Rob erts and others, and M. I.oubet then pre sented the members of his suite to the King, who shook hands with each. A brief and formal inspection of the guard of honot followed, after which King Ed ward and President Loubet, together wi*i the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Connaught, entered a state carriage and were driven to St. James’ palace. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVORERS. 20,000 Assembled in International Convention. Something like 20,000 visitors gath ered in Denver for the Internalionnl Christian Endeavor convention. They §came from all parts of the world, includ ing India, China, Japan, Norway and other remote coun tries, and represent 02,000 societies. This indicates that the growth of the Christian Endeavor movement contin- Denver people had been working for BEV. I)R. CLARK, ww ks to insure the success of the convention, ami plans were made to care for 25,000 visitors, though hardly so many were expected to come. Fifteen acres of ground near the City Park had been set aside as a convention camp, and the general meetings were held in a large tent, christened “Tent En deavor,” which gave seating room for 10,000. The big tent was surrounded by smaller ones, and the entire grounds were brilliantly lighted with electricity. Seven churches in the city were thrown open to Endeavorers for State headquarters. The opening session was held Thurs day, following a meeting ci the trustees, when officers for the ensuing two years wpre elected, liev. Dr. Francis E. Clark, who o’ ranized the first Christian En deavor Society at Portland. Me.. Feb. 22. 1881, was re-elected president, and W. Shaw treasurer. The present secretary is Van Ogden Vright, who was chosen by the trustees only a few months ago to succeed John Willis Baer. President Clark formally opened the convention and addresses of welcome were delivered by Gov. Peabody for the State, Rev. Roliert I F. Coyle for the churches and William E. | Sweet, chairman, for the committee of 1903. The days following were crowded with religious services, missionary rallies and addresses on topics of interest to the societies by prominent clergymen and other Christian workers from all parts of the country.

Commodity prices advanced slightly during June. Dun* index number on July 1 b. ing $99,456. compared with $98.03(5 a month earlier. A decline of 2.4 per cent is recorded in comparison with July, 1902, chiefly in articles or food. Railway earnings for June are 13.1 per cent larger than last year and 25.3 in esc -of 1901. Installation of new converters and oth er repairs interfere with work at some prominent stool mills, which explains in part the quiet condition of the market.

The winter wheat crop har vest lias about been completed, with considerably larger yield than last year. Retail trade in summer goods has im proved, and reorders from jobbers are larger in volume. Confidence in a large fall trade grows as corn and cotton make tip for their early backward start. Rail road earnings continue to show gains over all preceding years—the increase for June is fully 12 jn-r cent —mid prices display exceptional steadiness for a midsummer period. Eastern shoe shipments are 14 per cent less than last week, but 18 per cent larg er than last year. ~ The crop situation has tniCdOO. reached a stage where up ditions it is now possible to arrive at some definite conclusions: It is a certain ty that the lower prices for our cereal products that earlier in the season seem ed clearly foreshadowed are not to in realized. Remunerative prices may lie expected for almost everything the farm er will raise this year, while in '.lie great staples, especially wheat, there is every probability that the coming crop will sell at prices averaging higher than for several years. Tile three great States of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota produc ed in 1901 about 173.000,(100 bushels of wheat, and in *>o2 about 178,000.000. It wo assume that these three States v. ill raise 180 (*OO,OOO bushels on the standing | crop, it is clear that an increase of only | 1 cent a bushel in the average selling price would mean $1,800,000: 5 cents would mean $9,000,0<H1, while an average price 10 cents above that of last year would mean $18,000,000 more for the farmers. In 15KM) the average farm price of wheat m this country was (52 cents; in 1901 (52.4 cents, in 1902 (53 cents. Last year’s average was not a high figure for wheat. There is everything to indicate that it will average higher this year Late reports from the winter wheat fields are re -ning less favorable, while in the Northwest serious deterioration is found in places ns result of the recent drought. Jx*t no one suppose from this thnt we are not to have much wheat. There is likely to he an exportable stir plus above the average, but late reduc tions in estimate of probable yield are very important for the reason that early in the seas-on, too early in fact for reiia bility, tlscre was such nn acreage and such it condition as to suggest to some observers the possibility of a production of 800,000,000 bushels. The impression spread through many minds that the United States ntood to produce quan tity of wheat greatly in excess of any thing over before known, and inis idea took root abroad and even to the pres ent time lias not been entirely eradicated. As every fanner knows, it is the export demand that is the determining factor in making wheat prices in the long run. Europe must have att additional 1(50.- 000,(XX) bushels of wheat b-jyond a doubt. This we know from our own eonvjiar reports, from the reports of Brootnhall, the English authority, and from the sum mary of the London Statist cabled across enly this week. Foreign buyer* may hold off long, hut soon or late we will feel the effect of increased demand. With 700,000.000 bushels of wheat we will have plenty to sell, but w<- will not. have to beg Europe to take it from us, and no on • should lose sight of this as an fnipor tan: factor for our continued prosperity. i/gyiggfsg Chicago—Cattle, common to prime, j $3.00 to $5.30: hogs, shipping grade*. $4.50 to $5.55; sheep, fair to choice, $3.00 to $4.25; wheat.
