WW Daily and Weekly Tribune Weekly Established 1878. Daily 1881. TWENTY-SECOND YEAR. SOME LOSS OF LIFE. Ancient Bell Tower at Venice Crashes Into the Plaza. Venice, Italy, July 15.—The campa nile (detached bell tower of St.'Mark's church) collapsed during the morning and fell with a great crash into the plaza. The campanile, which was entirely .detached from the cathedral, collapsed where it stood and is now a heap of ruins. The cathedral and Palace of the Doges are quite safe, but: a corner of the royal palace was damaged. Re pairs on the campanile were to have been commenced during the day. It is feared there was some loss of life. The ruins were surrounded by a cordon of troops: The first intimation of danger was the sudden appearance Sunday of a longitudinal crack in the corner of the wall facing the clock tower and the breaking of two windows. A concert which had been arranged to be held on the plaza Sunday evening was stopped by order of the prefect, with the object of preventing a concourse of people. The campanile stood opposite the church or cathedral of St. Mark's. It was founded in 888, restored in 1329, provided with a marble top in 1417, fend in 1517 was crowned with the fig ure of an angel nearly 16 feet high. The logetta, or vestibule, on the east side of the campanile was once a ren dezvous of the nobilia and afterwards a waitingroom for the guards during the sessions of the great council. There were bronze statues of Peace, Apollo, Mercury and Palles on the coping of the campanile and its fine bronze doors were much admired. At the top of the tower a fire watchman, with a telescope, was continually tioned MERCER COUNTY. The Mercer county republican con vention was held on Saturday. Wm.

Balfour Succeeds Lord Salisbury and Takes the Reins of the British Government., No Dislocation of Business Follows the Retirement of Old Premier and Succession of New. Other Changes Thfit Have Been Made in the Personnel of the British Cabinet. London, July 15.—Perhaps never has a change of premiership been effected with so little dislocation to business, either public or private, as accompa nied the transfer of the seals of office from Lord Salisbury to A. J. Balfour. The occurrence had no effect whatever on the Stock Exchange. The only oth er change in the cabinet thus far an nounced is the chancellorship of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach having resigned, though others are foreshadowed. Mr. Balfour, in ad dressing the first meeting of his fol lowers at the foreign office, informed AKTHUB J. BA&FOUB. them that he could not count on the continued assistance of Sir Michael Hicks-Beach but he could count on the latter's good wishes. The public showed little interest in the party meeting, which was sum moned for noon. The new premier, when he entered the conference room of. the foreign office accompanied by the Duke of Devonshire, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Lord Londonderry, and others received quite an ovation. When Mr. Balfour rose to address the meeting all again stood up and cheered the new chief. Mr. Balfour 'referred to the loss of the services of the chief who for nearly fifty years had been en gaged in active political life. No one, he said, would grudge him his well earned repose, though his loss was ir reparable. Has Confidence in Associates. "I do not flatter myself," proceeded the premier, "that the gap he has left can be filled. But the place he has ieft must be occupied and it is because the king has desired me to do my best to take that position that I have asked you to meet me. I have accepted a great task and a heavy responsibility, certainly from no overweening belief in my own capacity but because I am sure, or, at least, have every reason to believe that in attempting to carry on this work 1 will have the most impor tant qualification a leader can have, namely, the regard for confidence iD those with whom he works." After a warm tribute to Lord Salis bury by the Duke of Devonshire Sir Michael Hicks-Beach rose and said there was no one whom he would more gladly and more readily have accepted as leader o£ the party than the man he had followed as leader fpr more than seven years. But Lord Salisbury's re tirement was a break with the tradi tions of his past political life. Two years ago he had begged for personal and not for political reaspns to be re lieved from office but he had consented at Lord Salisbury's instance to retain it to the end of the war. He now felt that the moment had come when such poor services as he could render could no longer be necessary to thS country. There were younger men who would do the work at least as well as he had been able to do. On entering the house of commons subsequently Mr. Balfour met with a great reception from both sides. The resignation of Sir Michael Hicks-Beach caused intense surprise. It wap generally taken to be almost more important than Lord Salisbury's and was regarded in some 'quarters as being directly due to the more impor tant voice which Mr. Chamberlain will have in the new cabinet. ... HICK8-BEACH IS OUT.-* ffyff fefe? Chancellor of the British Exchequer Resigns His Portfolio. London, July 15.—Sir Michael Hicks Beach, chancellor of the. exchequer, has resigned his portfolio. His political 'career began in "1864, when he was elected to commons from Bast Gloucestershire. In 1868 he re ceived his first government appoint ment, that of under secretary of th« home office. He became chancellor of the ex chequer and leader of gammons in thi first Salisbury administration. On his lordship's return to power in 1886 glcks-Beaoh assumed the chief secre fyshlp for Irela&dj, bu$ after a few months resigned owing to failing eye sight. Returning to his parliamentary du ties he re-entered the cabinet as pres ident of the board of trade in 1888, holding that office till the change of the administration in 1892. He has been chancellor of the exchequer since June, 1895. Recently Sir Michael has not been in entire accord with his colleagues over the conduct of the financial &£ fairs of the kingdom. SMASHED THE CORNER. July Corn Drops Five and a Half Cents in Ten Minutes. Chicago, July 15.—Corn bears gave the bulls who are supporting the cor ner in July corn a severe drubbing about mid-session on the board of trade. The market opened without any news of particular significance al though the manner in which receiving houses were making contract corn and sending it into this market caused much nervousness among the big bull leaders. The sentiment was inclined toward the bearish side for the first two hours, yet without any signs of a stampede. When the estimate came, however, that the day's receipts would be 1,000 cars or over traders who had the cash stuff in hand threw it at the bulls with such vigor that in ten min utes the price of July options dropped 5% cents. Excitement was not marked but speculators all over the floor voiced the opinion that the corner had been broken. Trade was of good size, bet ter than for several days—over half a million bushels being put out for profits by the crowd who were getting the cash stuff 20 cents cheaper than they were selling July. BALFOUR'S PERSONALITY. New British Premier Has Shown Con siderable Ability. London, July 15.—Right Hon. Arthur James Balfour, who becomes prime minister in succession to the Marquis of Salisbury, is the son of Lord Sal isbury's sister, and is fifty-four years of age. He was educated at Eton and Trinity college, Cambridge, and was elected to parliament in 1874. He joined Lord Randolph Churchill's "fourth party." In 1885 Lord Salis bury took him into the ministry and into the cabinet the next year as sec retary for Scotland. It was at the end of 1887 that he first made his mark when, as chief secretary for Ireland, he used what force Tie could control to crush opposition in Ireland and cynically gneered at the home rule members in parliament. He led in the preparation of the Conservative home rule legislation. In 1891 he was chosen Conservative leader in the commons, and took the place of first lord of the treasury in the cabinet, which position he holds in this cabinet too. He has written books on philosophy and theology, on bimetal lism and golf. He is unmarried. OPERATIONS RESUMED. Workmen Clearing Up the Debris In the Rolling Mill Mine. Johnstown, Pa., July 15.—Operations were started during the day in every section of the Rolling Mill mine of the Cambria Steel company, except the Klondike, where the fatal explosion of Thursday occurred. A majority of the fifty men on hand when the first trick went into tho mine at 7 o'clock were foreigners. They did not seem to have the least hesitation in re-entering the mine where so many of their fellow countrymen lost their lives. In a short time they were at work cleaning up the rooms. This work will take some time. A full force of men is expected to be at work before night. When the cleaning and repairing is completed the mine inspectors will make an investigation before it can be opened again for operation. The inquest will probably not be held before next Thursday. Although no more bodies were brought out or have been discovered some miners claim that many bodies will still be found therein. SPOONER SEES ROOSEVELT. Senator Asked to Aid in Investigating Panama Canal Title. Oyster Bay, N. Y., July 15.—Senator Spooner of Wisconsin arrived at Saga more Hill about 10:30 p. m. and after a conference with the president and Secretary Root left for New York about midnight. Mr. Spooner success fully eluded newspaper men, not one of whom saw him. His conversation with the president related in part to the purchase of the Panama Canal com pany's property. The senator has been invited by the department of justice to accompany Attorney General Knox to Paris to assist in the investigation of the title to the Panama Canal company's property. Whether he will go or not has-not been decided so far as can be learned here. ARRIVES AT SOUTHAMPTON. Cruiser Brooklyn With Lord Paunce fote's Remains on Board. Southampton, Eng., July 15.—The United States armored cruiser Brook lyn, from Annapolis July 1, having oh board the remains qf Lord Pauncefote, late ambassador of Great Britain at Washington, arrived here during the morning. The body was landed soon after 11 o'clock. Full naval honors were paid to the remains of Lord, Pauncefote.

No Attempts Are Made at Present Either to Send Out or to Receive Freight. Little Hope Held of an Early Settle ment Between the Railroads and the Strikers. Chicago, July 15.—The second week of the freight handlers' strike began with 20,000 men idle and shipping at I standstill. The railroad warehouses, ordinarily hives of industry, were al most as quiet as they were Sunday so far as regular business was concerned. At a distance from each warehouse was a company of pickets posted to keep freight from entering or leaving the sheds. Nearer the depbts were, guards of police, on duty to protect the men in the warehouses and to quell any disturbances which might arise. Goings of nonunion men brought into the city to take the places of the strik ers lounged about the warehouses or in their cars with scarcely anything to do. Wholesale houses made practically no attempt to send out freight or to re ceive it. These big establishments were all but closed down. The strike has cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars already and they stand to lose millions should the conditions which obtain continue. The lofss in wages to the sympathizers, the teamsters, the rail roads and other lines of business is estimated at considerably over ?1, 000,000 a day. The situation is ad mittedly very grave. Commission merchants on South Water street declared the usually an imated market dead. In times of com mercial peace this street is one of the most congested in the Caucasian world. But now in front of many of the stores there is not a wagon and scarcely a crate, box, or barrel of prod uce. Some had a few berries brought by boat from ^Michigan and Wisconsin, but th'ese were about the only fresh arrivals. Thirty cars of highly perish able stuff was reported on the tracks, while many more cars containing com modities which will last a few days longer lay abandoned. Of the day's ar rivals by rail only three carloads were cared for promptly. These contained live poultry. It was said that the Hu mane society would not allow them to perish and a permit was secured to take them to South Water street. One Driver Has an Exciting Time. A driver in a light wagon who suc ceeded in delivering two small pack ages to the santa Fe had a stirring time of it. When it became apparent to the striking pickets that he was headed for the warehouse they made a rush for him. A squad of policemen came to the rescue and the driver reached the warehouse in safety. "Better come inside where you'll be safe," one of the nonunion freight handlers advised. Several hpurs later the wagon still stood empty where the driver had left it. The latter remained in the warehouse, while pickets guard ed every avenue of escape. So far as could be learied this driver's two packages were the only ones delivered during the forenoon to any depot. Much fruit and vegetables which came in Sunday were reshipped, al though, it is said, without adequate re frigeration. Vegetable and fruit ped dlers succeeded in getting partial sup plies from the depots during the day, but it was only after much trouble with The pickets and assistance from the police. Tons of half spoiled stuff was given to poor people who waited at nearly all the depots in crowds, each one carrying a basket or bag. Despite the assertion of President Field of the Knickerbocker Ice com pany that ice was going to the freight houses pickets asserted that not one cake of ice had passed through their lines during the forenoon. The conferences between commit tees of the men and the railroad man agers generally came to naught. Even when President Curran told .the com mitteemen to accept 17% cents, a modification of his earlier instructions, no progress was made. A man familiar with the employers' side of the fight said: "The situation among the railroads is about this: The Western roads are swearing mad for the most part and won't budge an inch the Eastern peo ple generally want more time to con sider. I suppose this is because they have to do considerable conferring with New York, where most of them have their headquarters. The railroads claim to have enough men in their warehouses to handle all business brought to them. They stand to lose considerable but it is nothing to what Chicago wholesalers are losing." GUARDED BY SPECIAL POLICE. Henry Clay Washery Near Shamokin, Pa., Starts Up. Shamokin, Pa., July 15.—Two car loads of special policemen and laborers arrived here during the day from Schuylkill county. The men, fifty in all. went to work at the Reading com pany's Henry Clay washery and it was successfully started. The strikers is the iir&t to be operated in this region 6ince the anthracite strike was in augurated. Heavy Duty on Art. New York, July 15.—If full duty be paid on the paintings, statuary, bronzes and other works of art, comprising the Massaranti collection, part of which has arrived from Italy, Henry Walters of Baltimore, the purchaser, will have to turn over to the customs authori ties at least $150,000. Mr. Walters paid about $1,000,000 for the collection. COLORADO TRAIN ROBBERY. Denver and Rio Grande Passenger Held Up Near Sargents. Salida, Colo., July 15.—A report was received here shortly before noon to the effect that the Denver and Rio Grande narrow gauge passenger train was held up and gobbed by 'several men near Sargents, west of Marshall Pass. The robbery occurred at 8:50 a. m. at Chetser, Colo., 250 miles west of Denver. The engineer was compelled at the point of a revolver to stop the train. Two safes in the express car were blown open but it is asserted by officers of the Rio Grande Express company that the robbers failed to se cure any plunder -from the safes. The passengers were compelled to alight from the cars and line up alongside the tracks in the canyon and they were relieved of all their- money and valua bles. Many of the passengers threw away their money, watches and jew elry among the rocks before the rob bers^ searched them. There were many tourists among the passengers and while it is not known how much the robbers secured, it is presumed that the losses were heaw. THE MARKETS.

July 35.—With quite weak cables, skies clearing in every locality and heavy receipts, there sure ly was not incentive to increase long contracts. On the other hand the u'ade were unanimous in the belief that prices are on the down turn for good and will have very little diffi culty in procuring any amount of cheap wheat. We must admit that there is nothing to seemingly warrant much if any up turn, but this decline should develop a good cash and for eign demand and cut off rings. Corn again furnished food for thought, as well as difficulties for the bulls. Receipts were S27 cars of which 248 passed inspection. The July was at no time even firm, shorts being permitted to make their own terms of settlement. Oats found no difficulty in joining the downward march. Stop loss orders were met and longs stampeded. After opening off 1-4 to 1-2 an addition de cline was recorded, but supporting or ders were plentiful. On dips of this kind purchases for reasonable profits should be expected. Provisions were again influenced by the grain markets in such a manner as to suggest consideration. THE STOCK MARKET. New York. July 35.—There was a very confident feeling in the stock Snarket today. The aggregate of busi ness was not large, but distributed through a class of grain carriers that left not a doubt els to its purpose. Crop outlook accompanied by lower values for grains gave further assur ance that for the next twelve months the granger roads will be taxed to their full capacity. A BEAR RAISE ON CORN. Chicago. July 15.—The bears today had an inning, the July option, which has for sometime been cornered by the Harris-Gates crowd today oipened at SOc and declined to 05 3-2. a break of 34 3-2 cts. per bushel. Mr. Gates is reported to be on the way from New York to Chicago and it may be ex pected that his presence will cause a strong upturn on the shorts. NEED MORE HELP.

COLBY WRITES OF ENJOYMENT OF 'TRIP TO NORTH DAKOTA. Mrs. C. E. Colby, of Sterling, sends the Tribune a copy of the Orion. Mich., Review, containing a letter written by Carrie Bradford Seeley, a sister of Mrs. Colby, who has been visiting a,t Sterling, in which she says: Imagine me set down in the midst of this boundless prairie, one and a half miles from Sterling. I fondly im agined a 'prairie to be a vast level plain, and as I had been told that it was rolling, in the vicinity of Sterling, I supposed I should see small undula tions, but imagine my surprise to find large elevations, which we in Michigan would call rather large hills. My sister's home is situated in a valley, which they have named Peculi ar Valley, and is completely surround ed by these lovely hills, which bound the horizon and seem to touch the sky, in all directions. My brother's home is on the top of one of these elevations, and from it one can see miles of prai rie, dotted here and there by the clus terted buildings of the distant ranch men, while to the west, twenty-five miles away, are the immense bluffs on the bank of the Missouri river. Over these, on a clear day, rests a beautiful blue haze, whioh adds much to the loveliness of the view. The prairie has put on its prettiest garb of green in honor of my visit, no doubt, and is thickly strewn with wild flowers, some of which are very beau tiful. For diversion I have taken up horse back riding. Some of the spirit of my girlhood has returned to me here in this free life, or else so much atmos phere has "gone to my head" for I find great enjoyment in a gallop over the prairie, and my niece, who is an ex pert horsewoman, tells me that if I only stay a little longer, I shall be able to round uip the cattle in true cowboy style. But, alas. I cannot stay long enough to acquire that accomp.'sli ment. My brother and myself made a trip to Bismarck to see the sights of vhe capital city. It is a progressive wtit em town with thirty-five hundred in habitants, electric lights and water works. Throughout the east we hear much about the "wild and woolly west," but the crop must have been pretty well sheared off before I arrived for the whole weat shows progression and up-to-date ideas. I was taken to the capital building at Bismarck and was introduced to Governor White. I felt that a great responsibility rested upon me to represent in a proper man ner the great state of Michigan, my Michigan, and I braced myself to meet the emergency. I discussed with him. in a learned manner, the good and bad qualities of our altruistic Pingree and the courtly Governor Bliss. I express ed my pleasure in meeting the gover nor of so great a state but he laugh ingly disclaimed all idea of greatness, and said he was only a plain westerner. We saw the great Missouri, two miles from the city. Like the Missis sippi, it is a very muddy stream and is called by the people "the big muddy." It has a swift current, and is full of eddies and whirlpools, which render it unfit for boating and bathing. The immense bluffs on either bank of the Missouri make the scenery very beau tiful, and the fine million dollar bridge and the site of old Fort Lincoln across the river, where General Custer was stationed just before he went to his death in the famous battle with Sitting Bull and his braves make this point an interesting one. The prettiest trip I have made^iEfS.'. to the historical Sibley Butte, ten miles from Sterling. It is the scene of a bat tle between General Sibley's command and the Sioux, in 1SU3, when our men, after a desperate engagement drove the red men across the river. Sibley Butte is the highest of seven rocky bluffs is 150 feet high, and towers oyer all the surrounding hills. From its top, a fine view of the prairie for thirty-five miles in all detections can be obtained. At the foot of the bluff nestles the home of a noted ranchman of this vicinity, Mr. Harvey Smith, and his herd of sheep and cattle graze on frhe surround ing hills. It was a sight worth the pencil of an artist, and well repaid me for my wild scramble up aad down the old butte's ragged sides. The people here are noted for their generous hospitality and kindness to strangers, and to this good Quality I owe much of the enjoyment of my visit. tj,, MI $ I «.
