Yellow Fever Spreading to Other
Cities and the Greatest Panic
Annual Report of the Northern Pacific,
NEW YORK, kept. 20.— The North
ern Pacific's annual report for the
year ending June 30th shows a
surplus over all charges of §518.685. The
company has sold all of the third mort
gage bonds and 82,957,500 Northern Pa
cific and Montana bonds issued on 1.183
miles of road. The proceeds will pay off
outstanding bonds ot the tour branch com
panies and the contractors' claims. The
refusal of the Union Pacific to carry out
the joint lease of the Oregon Navigation is
noted. In conclusion the report states
that $787,552 are appreciable to dividends
on preferred stock accumulated in the
last five years. The land sales are ex
pected to sooner or later reduce the pre
ferred stock to 830,000,000 and .53.000,000
more if the company wins a land suit with
Manitoba. The report concludes with
prophesies of a brilliant luture. The
stockholders elected the present board of
directors with the exception ot Mr. John
C. Bullitt, who was elected in the place ot
Mr. August Belmont.
OAlvES SUCCEEDS PRESIDENT HARRIS.
At 2 o'clock the new board of directors
held a meeting and elected T. F. Oakes
president of the" company with his head
quarters at St. Paul. Robert Harris, the
outgoing president, was elected president
ot the board of directors with residence in
this city. It was expected that the mat
ter of declaring a dividend upon the pre
ferred stock would come up but it did not.
The meeting then adjourned. The impor
tant points which came up were the adop
tion of a resolution approving the lease of
the Northern Pacific and the Montana
railroad and the approval of the north
west equipment ot Minnesota.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 20.—In the senate
Mr. Edmunds' resolution to withhold the
Chinese bill was laid on the table by unan
imous consent. Mr. Mitchell took the floor
and addressed the senate at length on the
president's message and the tariif question.
He characterized the tariff bill as passed
by the house as in interest of the importer
and against the interest ot the laborer and
which had received the enthusiastic ap
proval of free traders at home and abroad,
and said that on the other hand the senate
substitute would be based from beginning
to end on the Americau doctrine of protec
tion to American labor aud American in
In the house immediately after the read
ing of the journal Mr. Burns of Missouri
•called up the conference report on the sun
diy civil appropriation bill aud the house
refused—32 to 49—to agree to it. Repre
sentative Morrow of Colorado introduced
a resolution directing the committee on
enrolled bills to transmit the Chinese bill
to the president without delay. A point
of order was raised against Mr. Morrow's
resolution and the debate upon the point
was spirited and at times almost bitterly
personal. Mr. Payson said the bill was de
layed because the president wants more
than the constitutional ten days. This is
part of the same performance begun by
the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr.
Scott) who attempted in a demagogical
way to make some capital tor himself and
his party. The speaker pro tem. sustained
the point of order. There was no law or
rule-prescribed manner in which the bill
should be transmitted to the president, but
the practice has grown up of entrusting
that duty to the committee on enrolled
billn. While sustaining the point ot order
he was not prepared to say that if the res
olution was again brought up in a few
da} she would rule that it was not privi
leged. So tlie resolution was not received
and tiie house adjourned.
PL'IiLIC LAND LEGISLATION.
A bill reported to the liou.se to-day from
the committee on public lands relative to
the suspension ot land entries provides
that all laws providing tor the disposal of
public lands, except the homestead laws
aud laws in relation to mineral lands and
laws touching the selection of public lands
by states for educational and other pur
poses, shall be suspended until the pend
ing legislation affecting the public lands
shall be disposed of or the present con
giess shall adjourn. It further provides
that during the pendency of the land for
feiture measures no act ot railroad com
panies interested shall in any way enlarge
their rights or claims.
In No Hurry to Go That Way.
THREE RIVERS, MICH., Sept. 20.—There
was a balloon ascention at the Centerville
fair yesterday afternoon. Among the
crowd of spectators was an old man who
as the baloon rose became entangled in the
ropes and was carried up feet foremost.
He clung to the ropes for his life and final
ly by the aid of the aeronaut, who was
above him on the trapeze, he was straight
ened and made the descent safely.
Minnesota Democratic Clubs Organize.
ST. PAUL, Sept. 20.—A state convention
of democratic clubs was held at 12 o'clock
to-day at Market hall. The object of the
convention was the organization of the
clubs into a league. Colonel Crooks, tem
porary chairman, upon taking the chair
said that he had for thirty years been prac
ticing in the democratic ranks. He thought
there would be a big democratic majority
in the state in November.

^fiold has been taken from it in less than a
THE CABLE SNAPPED.
An Elevator Cage Crowded With Pas
sengers Falls Five Stories.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20.—The elevator
cage in the Bankroft building dropped five
stories and several people were badly in
jured. The elevator was run by a cable
and had a small cage that was supposed to
hold only eight. It was always over
crowded when work stopped and yesterday
ten passengers entered on the fifth floor.
The boy pulled the lever and the cage
descended properly a few feet, then a loud
snap was heard and the cage went whizz
ing down past the doors on the other floors.
In a moment the elevator crashed through
the light flooring on the street level and
fell on the basemeut floor, twelve feet
below. The root was splintered and among
the wreck were the groaning passengers,
some bleeding from ghastly wounds and
others lying senseless. A. Alexander of
Oakland had a thigh fractured, ribs broken
and was suffering from hemorrhage of the
lungs. He cannot recover. The elevator
boy had his back broken. Robert Critcher,
whose legs were broken, is also in a dan
gerous condition. Several others were se
verely injured. The elevator was examined
three weeks ago and pronounced sate. It
had safety clutches guaranteed to arrest
the descent ot the car but they did not
work. The cable parted in the basement
where the wire goes over the wheel.
Campaign Plans Perfected Which Will
Surprise Tlielr Opponents.
CHICAGO, Sept. 20.—To-day the demo
cratic leaders inaugurate an engagement
all along the line and it is claimed the
programme they have perfected will prove
a surprise to their opponents. Hitherto
practically the only orators on the demo
cratic side have been General Palmer, Hon.
A. J. Bell and Judge Creighton. To-day.
however, there will be local meetings in
every legislative district in the state to

is credited with having suggested the plan
and considerable of the funds will come
from New York. The republican commit

A Minneapolis Sensation,
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 20.—The ugly ru
mors which were barely whispered yester
day afternoon in more or less direct con
nection with the failure of D. C. Maak &
Co. ended at midnight in the arrest of Wm.
G. Ilarley. of the grain commission firm of
Harley & Peterson, on the charge of steal
ing wheat from the Minneapolis Union
Elevator company. Harley was formerly
bookkeeper for D. C. Maak & Co. He left
them two months ago and formed a part
nership with Peterson, a grain man of long
standing in this city. A systematic course
of robbery of the compauy has been car
ried on in which several parties have been
interested. Owing to the construction of
the public elevator and the nature of its
business no one man could successfully
practice larceny upon its contents. Harley
was arraigned in municipal court this fore
noon on the charge of stealing 15,000 bush
els ot wheat from the Union Elevator com
pany. Afterwards charge was changed to
1,500 bushels and bail fixed at 81,000. The
case was set for Tuesday. At the chamber
of commerce the affair caused a great sen
The North Carolina Floods.
NORFOLK, VA., Sept. 24.—The freshet in
the rivers in eastern North Carolina is now
subsiding slowly. Great damage has re
sulted on the lowland farms along the
Roanoke, Notteleg, Black water and other
rivers, the cotton and coin crops being
submerged and destroyed and live stock,
barns and outhouses, cut lumber, cord
wood, bridges, fences, etc., swept away by
the floods, which have never before been
equally disastrous. The rise in the Roa
noke river is thirty-seven feet higher than
ever known before and overflows the low
country three miles from its banks. The
greatest destruction to the farmers is on
this river. Many dwellings were sub
merged and swept away with the barns
and outhouses. Crops are fifteen feet under
water. Many fine plantations are utterly
ruined, and it is estimated that the loss bv
floods this season Jhere will reach 81,000,000.
Archbishop Corrigan's Silver Jubilee.
NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—To the spectators
standing at the door of St. Patrick's ca
thedral on Fifth avenue this morning an
imposing scene was presented. The vast
array of heads that intervened between
the door and the grand high alter told of
thousands of Catholics who had assembled
to participate in the silver jubilee of Arch
bishop Corrigan. Inside the sanctuary
rails were rows of seats filled with num
bers of Catholic leaders from all
parts of the country. The secular and
regular clergy numbered about 480. The
alter was simply but impressively adorned
with palms. A purse of 820,000 was given
to the archbishop and addresses and tele
grams of congratulation were received.
One was from the pope.
A New Railroad For the Northwest.
ST. PAUL, Sept. 20.—The Eastern Rail
way company of Minnesota is now ready
tojdo business between the twin cities and
the head of Lake Superior. The track be
longing to this company is completed from
Hinckley to West Superior, which is the
terminalpoint from St. Paul and Minne
apolis. The Manitoba track will be used
to Hinckley until the Eastern can construct
tracks of its own. The new railroad will
give Manitoba an early outlet from the
west of the lake.
Negotiations Fallen Through.
WINNIPEG, Sept. 20.—The Hudson Bay
railroad negotiations have tumbled through
for the present. The government is not
willing to give more than 8200,000 and
without assurance that thi3 will complete
it, which the promotors are not willing to
give, have refused to aid in the extension
of the sixty miles this season.

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 22.—The Evening
Journal says: Developments do not im
prove the case for D. C. Maak & Co It was
rumored on the floor this morning that in
his statement before the directors Wednes
nesday Harley stated that his connection
with the affair was that of employe and
not that of principal. This has had some
influence upon public opinion.

agriculture one of the executive depart
ments was taken up, the question being on
the amendment reported by the committee
on agriculture to strike out the fifth sec

tary ot agriculture shall receive the same
salary as is paid to the secretary of each of
the executive departments and the salary
of the assistant secretary of agriculture
shall be the same as that now paid to the
first assistant secretary of the department
of the interior. The conference report on
the sundry civil appropriation bill was then
presented and agreed to. Mr. Sherman
asked Mr. Allison if the conference report
covered all the matters in dispute between
ihe two houses. Mr. Allison replied that
the only question on which the conference
had been unable to agree was the amend
ment as to the new library building. Ad
In the house Mr. Daugherty of Florida
a9ked unanimous consent for the passage

BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY. SEPT. 28,1888.
THE REVIEW OP TRADE.
An Improvement Still Noted in the Le
gitimate Volume of Business.
NEW YORK.Septal.—Dun & Co's weekly
review of trade says: The volume of le
gitimate business continues to improve.
The crop reports are altogether favorable
as to corn. Tlie general average of prices
has again declined slightly. In stocks a
severe reaction averaging S3 per share cul
minated last Saturday and there has been
an average advance of $1.50 per share.
The crop which is the most important to
railroads as to financial aspects is not
large—the yield of wheat being 80,000,000
to 90,000.000 short of a full crop. Tin
heavy rains late in the season »ve also
injured cotton to some extent as to grade
and probably as to quantity, but the feel
ing still prevails that a large business may
be expected for the coming season, though
the luller supplies of money at western
and southern centers may cause the demand
upon New York to be lighter than usual..
Official reports show that the money
circulation ot all kinds was about $1,361.
000,000 September 1st, against §1,321,000,000
a year ago, and the treasury has put out
this month about .52.000,000 more than
it has taken in. Besides adding to the
ciiculation the amount of gold and silver
coinage tor the past week the addition to
the circulation lias been §3,200,000 and on
Thursday .§3.760,000 more bonds were pur
chased. Reports troin interior points show
that money is generally in ample supply,
though there is some cioseness at Detroit
and Cleveland. The market is tight at At
lanta. Collections have improved. For
speculation money there is in abundant
supply but for commercial uses the market
is growing harder. Business ts fail ly ac
tive at all interior points reporting and at
most it is better than a year ago, but
while the principal centers report a
good and increasing trade the accounts
from several of the unusual dullness at the
smaller towns in regions surrounding sug
gest that the distribution may not be an
swering expectations. Wheat has been
moderatively active with sales of 29,000,000
bushels and only a cent net advance in
price, while corn has declined cents,
outs cent aud oil cent. Pork pro
ducts are higher. Meanwhile the exports
of wheat from this country for Julv and
August amount to 18,500,00 bushels—flour
included—against 35,750,000 bushels last
year, and tlie supply remaining for export
is probably about 24,000,000 bushels greater
than last year's exports for the rest of the
PVGIUST JOHN LOVES ANNIE.
His Mistress at His Bedside—He Will Not
Send Her Away.
BOSTON, Sepi. 21.—When a priest en
tered John L. Sullivan's rooms at Crescent
Beach last night he found there the pu
gilist's mother and Annie Livingston, his
mistress. Sullivan was conscious but
weak. He recognized the clergyman.
"Who is this young woman, John, that has
just left the room?" asked the priest. Sul
livan hesitated but finally he mustered up
courage and admitted that she was his
mistress. "You must send her away,"
said the priest. "1 cannot and will not,"
replied the pugilist. The clergyman
pleaded for some time with John but it
was no use. Sullivan's last words to the
concerning the woman were: "Annie
ivingston has been a true friend to me in
time of trouble. She has stuck to me when
others who were nearer gave me the cold
shoulder. She has nursed me kindly the
past three weeks and I don't propose to go
back on her now."
SOLEMN REQUIEM SERVICES.
How the Close of the Pope's Jubilee Year
Will Be Celebrated,
WASHINGTON, Sept. 24.—The services of
the sacerdotal jubilee year of Pope Leo
XIII will close Sunday. In accordance
with the directions of the pope, the ser
vices on that day in every Catholic church
throughout the world will be the same as
on All Sonls' day. On the 30th inst., there
fore, solemn requiem mass will be cele
brated for the repose of the souls of the
faithful departed in pursuance of an in
creased devotion in the church for the suf
fering souls in purgatory. Cardinal Gib
bons in a letter addressed to the clergy of
liis archdiocese, commends the wish of the
holy father to the affectionate regard of
all the clergy and laity, and the archbishop
and bishops throughout the United States
have issued similar requesas.

GRAND FORKS, Sept. 21.—[Special.]—
H. L. Loucks, president of the Farmers'
Alliance, to-day issues a public letter to the

Yellow Jack aud the Darky.
JACKSONVILLE, FLA., Sept. 22.—To-day
the records of new cases were again
broken. The score reached 163. Of these
103 were colored people, who are being
freely reported. It is now almost certain
that many hundred colored people have
bad the fever and recovered without treat
mentor physicians. It has been demon
strated that they are almost as susceptible
to attack as the whites, but the issue is
rarely fatal with them. Negroes never die
with yellow fever unless they call in a
doctor. The deaths reported to-day are
Harrison and the Drummers.
INDIANAPOLIS,Sept. 22.—This was Chi
cago day with General Harrison. In the
morning and early afternoon he was oc
cupied receiving callers. The commercial
travelers from Chicago did not arrive till
after 4 o'clock. They came by special
tsain in two sections, and were accom
panied by the Second Regiment band. The
drummers entered General Harrison's
house and as they passed through the hall
way each one shook hands with both Gen
eral and Mrs. Harrison and left his card
on an adjacent stand.
