FLASHES FROM FOREIGN LANDS.
Emperor William Receives an Ovation at Strasburg*. Insulting French Placards Posted in Conspicuous Places. The Franeb-Slameee Imbroglio Assumes a Bertous l'haec—Germany Ac quires a Coaling Station In the Medlteranean. By the Associated Press. Btkasburo, Sept. 9.—The emperor of Germany arrived here this morning, i His majesty alighted from tbe imperial train at Neufeld station, which was brilliantly decorated for tbe occasion. He rode to the reviewing ground, ac companied by his staff and a guard of cavalry. The emperor was greeted on all sides with cheers of welcome. Ar riving at the parade-ground the Fifteenth army corps was reviewed. Thousands of people were present. After the re view the emperor was entertained by the leading offloials of tbe city of Stras burg. Great preparations bad been made for tbe reception of the emperor in the city. The streets and principal build ing were profusely decorated, and the seven great gates leading through the ramparts and walls around the city were made beautiful with flags and flowers. Great enthusiasm prevailed wherever the kaiser appeared. The emperor was much pleased with tbe warm greeting. But it is said in spite of these demonstrations of loyalty there was an exhibition of disloyalty made dnring tbe early part of the day. Ac cording to report, during tbe night a number of placards printed in French were ,posted up at conspicuous points along tbe route of tbe parade. These placards, it Is said, referred ln most in sulting terms to tbe visit of the crown prince of Italy to Strasburg in company with the emperor of Germany. Tbe police promptly removed all traces of these placards and are making vigorous search for the persons who printed them, as well as for tbose wbo took part in posting them up along tbe emperor's routo. FRANCE AND SIAM. Complications of a Herlons Nature Again Arisen. Paris, Sept. 9.—The story of fresh complications between France and Siam, cabled exclusively to the Asso ciated Press yesterday, is fully confirmed today by tbe utterances of tbe French presß. There is no doubt tbat France is fretting under the sneering documents of foreign newspapers noon her alleged back down before England's film atti tude. There is still less doubt that the French government is determined tbat the foreign press shall net easily have another chance to hold up the republic to ritlicule. Much irritation iB felt tgaintt England from tbe fact that ehe .ias admitted that she is supporting, if not advising, Siam in the dilatory atti tude the latter country has assumed in the treatment of the concessions mads to the French. In consequence the French newspapers are spurring tbe government to make a determined effort to teach England not to interfere with tbe colonial policies of Franoe. Not only has Earl Dufferin postponed bis proposed vacation in Switzerland, but it is added tbat dispatches of a most important nature were exchanged yes terday between the British foreign office and the British embassy in Paris. As having a bearing on tbe Franco- Siamese complications, Figaro makes a most important announcement, to tbe effect tbat Germany having been' in formed tbat the visit of a Russian squadron to Toulon will result in the establishment of a coaling station for Russia on the French coast, has ob tained as a counterblast the cession by Italy of a' small island in tbe Mediterranean which is to be fortified, coaled and used as a rendezvous, simi lar to tbe use by Great Britain of the island of Malta, and that, when done, Germany will maintain a permanent squadron in the Mediterranean. This action, it is said, was taken after both Italy and Germany bad consnlted with England. Tbe exact position of the island is not divulged, but it is said to be admirably suitable for the purpose and within easy steaming distance of tbe Dardanelles and nsar tbe Suez canal. A Juries In the Tolls. Prkkcott, Ari»., Sept. 9.—The prelim inary examination oi Probate judge E. W. French took place today, reenlting in the jnstioe holding him to appear be fore the grand jury on three charges— forgery, embezzlement and presenting fraudulent warrants for payment. Hie bail on each charge was fixed at 1600. Bonds will probably be famished. lira at Klverilde. Riverside, Sept. 9.—Fire destroyed a home belonging to P. A. Hall this evening. Tbe structure was occupied by W. A. Wretly who lost all bis house hold effects. Hall's lost is probably 11200; Wrealy's $500; no insurance in either case. The cause of the fire is un known ae there was no one in the house when the fire broke oat. Now On the Bull Bide. Chicago, Sept. 9.—An afternoon paper says Addison Commack, the noted New York bear in etooke, who is reported to bave made (10,000,000 in tbe recent panic in securities, has gone in on tbe bull side in wheat in Chicago, to tbe extent of 6,000,000 to 10,000,000 bushels and hints at a bull deal. Fire In Gotham. Nkw Yokk, Sept. 9.—Fire wiped out the fast New York place of amusement known as Bennett's casino, six frame tenements and the relic of the revolu tionary days called Hunter's home, this afternoon. The losses foot up between $125,000 and $150,000. Presidential Appointments. Washincton, Sept. 9.— The president has nominated Thomas Smith of Vir ginia chief justice of the supreme court of the territory of New Mexico; John Balfour Hemingway, New Mexico, attor ney ol the United States for New Mexico. Rioting ln Spain. Madrid, Sept. 9.—A riotous mob sacked the town hall at Santander, de stroyed all the paper and greatly dam aged the mayor's house and water works. Troops quelled the disturbance.

ANCIENT ARIZONA. Homes Built ot Shells lo the H uaohoca Mountains. Phoenix Gazette; Arizona is plenti fully sprinkled with the ruins of strange habitations; most of them are con structed of concrete or adobe and tbe whole mystery about tbem is the identi ty of the people who designed them. How they could be built is not rt matter of conjecture, as the materials are close at hand. But there is one ruin, although still in a good state of preservation, which is a mystery no matter in what light it is considered. It is in the Huaohuca mountains, not far from tbe military reservation, In a northeasterly direction. Nothing is known of itsorigin and the wonderful partis the material of which it is constructed. It is about 200 miles from the ocean, and surrounded on all sides by bills of sand and rocks covered with cacti. There is no water for miles except the excuses for rivers that ran during the rainy season. There is not even the suggestion of water, and yet tbe houses urn built of sea shells laid in a sort of cement. Where the- shells were obtained is a mystery tbat may never be solved. It does not seem pos sible tbat the builder of tbe bouse would carry the material over hundreds of miles of desert when there were plenty of rooks near by that answer the pur purpose just as well, even though they were not so unique. M'CONNELL'S AIM. It luiproVsd Whan the Cattle Thieves Jeered at Illia, Lancaster Gazette: W. H. McCon nell called and explained tbe shooting scrape that occurred near hia piece last week in the Llano Verde. He saw three men driving his cattle away and were about a mile from the bouse. He took after them with bis rifle and when he got near be be began shooting at tbem. Tbey returned the fire with six-shooters and jeered McDonnell for his wild shooting. So he took cooler aim and shot and then saw one of the men clasp his hand on bis thigh as if shot there. Then they left the cattle and rode away. Later a man bleeding from bis thigh, which was bound up with a handkerchief, was Been further down the canon. Those Big; Loads. Chlno Champion: A very lively ri valry hap been going on tbe past couple of weeks between Steve Tebo and W, L. Bevans as to which could haul the larger load of beets from the field to the fac tory. Tebo waß ahead until last Satur day, when Bevana beat him a few pounds. Yesterday morning Bevans again brought in the largest load, weigh ing 12,560 pounds. Bat he didn't hold tbe banner long, for in the afternoon Tebo brought in a load weighing 15,100 pounds, or over seven and a half tons. These loads were put on and hauled through tbe soft ground of tbe fields, and show draft horses and driving that cannot be beaten in this section of the country. __________ STRANGLED FOR REVENGE. A Shocking Murder In the Business Center of Kansas City. Kansas City, Sept. 9.—A shocking murder was committed today in a prom inent office building at the "Junction," the most prominent location in the business district of tbe city. Mrs. Jane Wright, better known as Madame Wright, a well-known employment agent, was found dead in her office thie evening by tbe Janitor of the building. Tbe body waa found on tbe floor face downward. The face had been cruelly beaten and was scarcely recognizable through the cut's and bruises upon it. The band* and feet were securely tied with stout wrapping cord. Deep red imprints of human Angers on tbe throat, the discolored face and protruding tongue and eyes told how the murder had been done. The mur der is altogether a mysterious one, and there is no clue to its perpetrators. Tbe only possible motive for the crime, so the police say, is revenge, and that sug gests the theory that tbe crime was committed by several Italians whom Mme. Wright is said to have swindled come time ago. Late tonight Mrs. Wright's son was arrested. Albert Frosuey, a man em ployed about Mrs. Wright's place four miles in the country, was also arrested. Blood was found on his clothing, and the police think he is concerned in tbe murder. Frosuey was a son by Mrs. Wright's first husband. Mrs. Wright was a sister of the noted Bat Masterson. Kuooked Out by Consumption. New York, Sent. 9.—Mike Oleary, ex prize fighter and trainer, who five years airo stood in the foremost ranks of hia profession, is dead of consumption. William Muldoon brought this news to the city today. Oleary had been his guest for the past few months at Belfast farm, near Buffalo. Infantry Bills Practice. Chicago, Sept. 9.—The infantry began its final day of skirmishing on the Fort Sheridan rifle range this morning. Sergeant Thomas O'Rourke broke the record by sending 36 out of a possible 37 bullets through the prone figure. It is now impossible to defeat him for first place. A Cootie Fatally Injured.

Considerable Magazine Literature ou Financial aud Industrial Topics. Bouie Articles on Current Subjects—Stag nation In Manufactures—Municipal Government — County Tax Levy—Heal Bstate. Concurrent with tb published debates in congress upon the silver question, tbe leading magazines and reviews continue to give a large amount of space to dis pussions touching upon matters oi finan cial interest. Prominent among the pa pers oi the present month are those in tbe Forum on A Century's Struggle for Sil ver, by Professor John Bach McMaster of the University of Pennsylvania, Phe nomenal Aspects of tbe Financial Crisis, by Albert 0. Stevens, editor of Brad street's, and an instructive paper on tbe Scotch Banks, Their Branches and Cash Credits, by A. S. Michie, president of tbe Royal Hank of Scotland. Tbe North American Review contains two contri butions of unusual interest; one by Andrew Carnegie, entitled A Word to Wage Earners, and the other on the Present Crisis, by Sir John Lubbock. MANUFACTURKB. The condition of our industries is not on the mend. Fifty-live textile and twenty-one iron and steel concerns bave Btopped. In addition, 13 others have reduced working time and several have reduced working force and a large num ber of tbe workß have reduced wages from 10 to 20 per cent. I'oes it not seem, therefore, that the tariff question after all is an important factor in the prob lem more than is aa yet generally admitted? One of the moßt recent ex amples is in the action of Smith & Wesson, tbe revolver manufacturers, who have made a general reduction of wages in lieu of shotting down, giving as a reason the existing uncertainty as to the changes in tbe tariff which will probably be made in the near future. This feeling of doubt and uneasiness cannot but be intensified as time goes on, until congress comes to the rescue. MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT. A veryinterestiug paper is contributed to the current number of the Forum by Mr. Edward M. Shepard upon tbe Brooklyn Idea of City Government. Mr. Shepard endeavors to show tbat the notorious corruption, waste and extrav agance of Brooklyn city administration is tbe "bossiam," in spite of the charter, and that tbe blame should be laid not upon the boss, bnt npon tbe weak kneed power in tbe person of tbe mayor. Tbe characteristic feature of the Brooklyn charter, he says, is this: Ex cepting the comptroller, who is the head of tbe finance department, and the auditor, both of whom are elected, the beads of all tbe departments ot the city are appointed by tbe mayor solely, with no requirement of confirmation by al dermen or any other body, and the terms of all such appointees of tbe mayor (except members of the board of education, who serve for three years, one-third of tbe board being appointed on July Ist in each year) ex pire on February Ist, one month after the inauguration of a newly elected mayor. Tbe mayor does not have the same absolntd power of removal, bnt he may prefer charges, which, after litiga tion, are passed upon, and in the mean time he may suspend tbe accused officer and appoint a substitute in bis place, so that practically his control is nearly ab solute. He also has numerous other powers of veto and of regulating ex penditures, and altogether has a greater opportunity of accomplishing practical good in municipal administration than belongs to tbe mayor of any other Amer ican city. Tbe "Brooklyn idea" has undoubted merit and it is worth tbe attention of Los Angeles taxpayers. The existing system of petty strifes between political factions for supremacy in matters where politics should not be allowed to enter is humiliating to a degree. It ought to be recognised that the affairs ol a mu nicipality should be administed by capable business men, ebosen for tbe position on account of their known ability and integrity, and who should not bave to wade through the mire of primary elections, cacnees and political conventions as now conducted. The idea of concentrating the chief powers in the bands of one man, and of holding tbat one man strictly accounta ble for tbe success or failure of bis ad ministration, would develop an element of strength which is at present wanting, the responsibility for extravagance, mis takes and favoritism being too widely scattered under the existing order of things. TUB COUNTY TAX LEVY. It is stated that the supervisors will have to increase the tax levy in order to provide funds to meet past due pay ments of principal and interest on out standing bonds. If this is so it would Bhow an extraordinary carelessness in tbe management of the past. But the statement that tbe amount to be pro vided for, viz., $197,550 will necessitate raising the levy from $1.30 to (1.90, or 60 cents of increase, is an evident and very gross exaggeration. THE SrBNCE OBSERVATORY. Another remnant of the boom is about to be cleared away, and the great $50, --000 telescope that was to bave decorated Wilson's peak will probably be beard of no more after the proceedings now in court are determined, by which it is sought to extinguish the trust created by the liberal-minded and departed banker. One feature of Mr. Spenne'e gift deserves imitation. He tried to accomplish something useful in hie life time with his large means, and had he been less of a bard worker he might have lived to see the fruition of hia idea. It is too much the custom with rich people to provide bequests for large works, such as colleges, libraries etc., to be carried out after tbeir death. TRANSFERS. The real estate transfers of tbe past week are without any special feature and indicate the existence of a moderate demand for property intended for use and occupation. Speculative purchases are unheard of. Investments for in come show more promise, tbe inquiry being veiy. fair, but purchasers still hanging back in tbe expectation of lower prices. PAVING.
