Logan has been given a blow-out at Jamestown, N. Y. Jos. A. Stone & Co., heavy coal oper ators of Pittsburg, ask an extension of credit. Mary Clemmer, (Mrs. Hudson) a well known writer, died in Washington on Monday. A lire at Genada v Mississippi, destroy ed the greater part of the business por tion of the town. Half the business portion of Greenville, Texas, was destroyed by tire, entailing a loss of $300,000. The French steamer, Rio Negro, has sailed for Tonquin, China, with 1,300 troops and munitions of war. A French naval officers on furlough have been ordered to report for duty in anticipation of war with China. The Mahoneites and the straight-out republicans of Virginia arc trying to close up the breach between the two fac tions. The Clara Bell, from Panama, is at Key West, her crew all down with Cliagres fever, a disease resembling yel low fever. Hand & Ellsworth, paper manufactures of New York, have assigned with liabil ities of $281,000 and assets of less than half that sum. It is said that Robert Bonner, proprie tor of the New York Ledger, and a fa mous horse-fancier, has purchased Maud | S. from Vanderbilt. Max Morganthall soap and candle man ufacturer, of San Francisco, has assigned with liabilities of a quarter of a million, and assets of nearly as much. A Tlie cholera is spreading in France, Switzerland and Italy, and at Toulon and Marseilles, where it first appeared, is in creasing after having almost died out. Aaron Morris, of the firm of J. Morris & Co., Hailey, Idaho, was murdered as he was going home from a collecting tour. Though the murder was evidently for the purposes of robbery, the money which Morris had on his p( mon was not found. Alsop and Graves, two convicts who led the revolt in the Frankfort, Ky., pris on and escaped, were discovered in a cornfield by a posse in pursuit. They opened fire on the pursuing party and killed George Cassell, a farmer. The officers returned the fire and killed both the convicts. A National Association of veterans of the German Army was formed in Milwau kee on Monday. Its objects are similar that of the G. A. R. The officers are Paul Werner, Akron, Ohio, commander; Hart Harwig, Milwaukee, auditor; Chas. Winkler, Chicago, paymaster. The next annual meeting will be. at St. Louis. The Kennebec (Maine) Journal says: It was discovered about two weeks ago that the date of tlie birth of the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Blaine, which died July, 1854, had been carefully chis selled from its monument. The object is not known, but it lias been discovered that a certain person, who is suspected of this vandalism, had copies of the alleged record sent to various parts of flic coun try to papers antagonistic to Blaine. De tectives are on Ins track. Yellow fever has broken out in Mexico Hermosiilo, Perjira, Torres, Ciefema, Cahoors and Oritz. There have been sixteen deaths at Hermosiilo. The most alarming circumstance is that the fever has broken out without any contagion, showing that tlie germs of the disease have lain dormant in that locality since last year. Physicians say that unless the government takes measures to exterminate the germs of the disease, it vvi l break out each year with increasing violence until that part of the country will lie uninhab itable. The first daily newspaper ever printed this country by electrical power is Lawrence, Mass., American. The building in which the dynamos are in op eration is seven hundred yards from the newspaper office and two wires extend I from it to the motor or electrical engine in the office. A large Hoe press, upon which the paper is printed, is run, and also the cylinder and job presses of a large printing establishment, the entire power for running them passing over a single wire. The little electrical inn chine weighs only 800 pounds; there h no delay in waiting to get up steam, no loss of time from the uncertainty of boil ers. When the power is required by a single movement of the lever the wheel is started upon its swift unchanging revo lutions. The American has let its tires go out for two weeks and says that thus far it has proved altogether the most un tiring, steady and reliable power it has ever known. The contributions to the Conscience Fund of the Treasury in the last fiscal year amounted to over $6.000. This fund has, since its establishment over twenty years ago, amounted to some $250,000. For some years past it has averaged from $5.000 to $7,000 a year. The term "Con science Fund'' was originated by Treasur er Spinner. One day during the war he received a letter at the treasury depart ment from a man who inclosed a check for $1,500, saying that it represented a misappropriation of government funds of which he had been guilty while a quarter master in the army. "Suppose we call this a contribution to the conscience fund, and get it announced in the newspapers, and perhaps we will get some more,' 7 he suggested. The announcement was made and the treasury became the recipient of such funds. 'The largest contribution ever made was $1,1)00, forwarded by an ex-revenue gauger from Chicago, as the amount of a bril>e received by him from distillers who desired to defraud the gov ernment. The smallest was nine cents, forwarded by a Massachusetts man who remembered that he had years before used a marked tliree-ceut stamp on a letter. In order to relieve his con science he sent three times the original steal, which lie thought was a fair corn peusation. Many of these contributions come from persons who smuggled goods. The majority are from women. A recent case of this sort is quoted. A lady re siding in Canada, who, years ago, smug gled into tiiis country a silk dress patent worth $100, recently concluded that she ought to remit duty on it, and going to a custom-house officer asked him to calcu late for her the duty she would have paid plus the interest, which being done she forwarded the sum to the department, omitting—as most of them do—to send her name. Occasionally a letter is re ceived from a clergyman, stating that it is the result of a death-bed confession, of some offender, who asks that the money and the confession be forwarded to the department.—Balt!more American. MONTANA NEWS. Along the Missouri valley between Canton and Townsend a bear or bears are killing a number of calves belong ing to the ranchmen. The El Dorado Gold Mining Com pany on Pritchard creek in the Coeur d'Alenes have just /dosed a contract with E. D. Reynolds, dealer in mining machinery, Butte, for pumps, boilers, engines, that are capable of handling several hundred gallons of water per minute. There was a severe hail storm at Canton, on the Missouri, on Sunday last, and a great deai of damage was done to the growing crops. Several fields, comprising many acres, are said to be completely cut to pieces. The hailstones were very large, some of them weighing as much as two and a half ounces each. In Canton tlie windows of one or two houses were knocked out sash and all. The Shadow of the* Substance. [Boston T ranseriDf. ) Of course, when a clergyman hnsi deliver, d an hour -.on g sermon, lie can not expect the newspapers to print it en; ire, and when a reporter informs hi il that he shall print the substance of it, the clergyman is naturally quite happy. VYhen t e m ni der sees the report and t n Is it to consist of but five nes, he is not so happy; or, at least, he does not feel g ready flattered.
