’ VSTABLJSHKD 1860 INCORPORATED 1888. V J. H. EBXILL. Uresident. ) A WHITE CITY OF TENTS. Knights in Martial Array Arrive at the National Capital. A Eeavy Thunder Storm and Drench ing Kain Meet Them at Washington. Many Tents Were Dismantled and Other Inconveniences Felt, at All of Which They Make Merry—The Stuffed Alligator Totem From Florida, and Many Goats Are There. Washington, Aug. 26. —An unwelcome house warming was given the Knights of Pythias encamped in the white city of tents around the Washington monument this afternoon. It came in the form of a terce thunder shower, which swept over the city almost without warning, and then settled into a steady rain until sun set. Several tents were dismantled by the wind and sheets of rain, and the light ning was unpleasantly sharp. All of the discomforts incidental to the storm were accepted in hilarious mood by the knights, however, and they made fun under the canvas as well as outside, after the lirst drench ing of rain had passed over. There were reunions and cheers for the arriving companies, while the bands in camp kept going a continual concert, endeavoring to outplay their rivals. Special trains were pulling into the depots, and brilliantly uniformed commands in scarlet, blue and white were marching up Pennsylvania avenue through the rain, many displaying handsome banners or grotesque emblems. Particularly strikiug was the Florida pnalanx, presenting a gleaming array of white duck trousers and carrying at the head of the line the most famous product of their state —a stuffed alligator, rampant. In the face of the weather hundreds of residents hocked to inspect the camp during the day, trooping through the avenues of tents and crowding about the goats and other paraphernalia, animate and inani mate, brought by the westerners who are in a large majority to-day. Fine discip line was maintained in the encampment, something like martial regulations being enforced. Three thousand men sleep on the light cots undercanvas to-night, while uniforms are the rule rather than the exception on the streets. The most heavily gilt-laced of the re galia was lo be found at the Ebbitt house, where headquarters have been estab lished by Mai. (Jen. Carnahan, where the ■citizens’ committee also congregate, and where every stranger is greeted by his acquaintances with an otlicial title. Since the encampment is not officially begun until to-morrow, the divisions are not required to report their presence until then, so no list of the organizations on the ground is yet to tie had. Among the prominent divisions which arrived to-day were those from New York. Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Joseph, Chicago and Colorado. President Cleveland has definitely promised to review the grand parade on Tuesday. A reviewing stand will bo erected for him in front of the executive mansion. Gen. Carnahan and his staff will review the parade on horseback on Pennsylvania avenue near the treasury. A stand is being erected by the treasury, in which seats will be reserved for sena tors, representatives and other govern ment officials and members of the diplomatic corps. Wednesday will be the most interest ing day of all from a popular point of view, for it marks the beginning of the prize drills between the crack organizations of the order. The drills will be hold on the grounds of the Washington base ball club, and will be continued throughout till Sept. 1, when the prizes will be awarded. Wednesday evening there will be a grand illumination and parade, and a cavalry prize drill at l ort Meyer will be the feature of one of the remaining days. A largo number of commands will contest for the drill prizes, isome of those intending to participate have not been formally entered yet. NEW YORK S NEXT. Levi P.

Ingersoll’s recent letter asserting suicide is no sin is partly responsible for a suicide that came to light to-day. The body of Joseph McName, 80 years old, and single, was found on the beach of Minnesota Point, a short distance east of the ship canal, and it is probable he threw himself in and was carried out into the lake by the current which sweeps around Minnesota Point. The body was al most unrecognisable because it had been pounding on the beach a long time. His feet and hands were bound. Eight weeks ago he came here for his health from Kansas City, where he and his brother had been in business. He spent his 8400 in sprees, and became despondent when his mother refused to send him money tor his hotel bill. To his fellow boarders he talked suicide and quoted lu gersoll, and ten days ago he disappeared. His parents, who are well-to-do, live at Junction City, Kan. TROLLEY CAR WRECKED.

Promised Grand Spectacular GermaD Military Reviews. Eleven Ironclads and Forty Others Take Part in the Baltic Maneuvers. Night Attacks, Marches and Bi vouacs Now the'Order oijthe Day A Monument to Emperor William I. What the Press Finds to Say About the “War Lord’s” Extravagance. Great Rowing Regatta Military Scandal. Berlin, Aug. 28.—The 1 maneuvers of the North sea fleet have been in pro gress for the last four days. Eleven iron clad and forty other vessels take part in the evolutions. The naval maneuvers will be con cluded in the Baltic on Sept. 6. The fleet will leave Kiel and will join ottier vessels concentrating at Swinemunde, where the emperor on the Imperial yacht Hohenzollern, will watch the evolutions. The fieet may be ordered to Dantzie, but it will not co-operate in maneuvers there with the military. Neither will the night crossing of the river Vogat be effected by the East Prussian troops, as the emperor had hoped, even after the serious outbreak of the cholera. This feature will be replaced, however, with a night attack upon Thorn. The plan of the maneuvers of the main army have been altered, so as to locate the principal battlefields between Koenigsberg and Elbing, instead of between Elbing and Dantzie. The emperor and empress and the King of Wurtemburg will arrive in Koenigs berg on Sept. it. They will be welcomed on the Sattler Platz by thirty young women in white, who will scatter flowers and do other conventional things never omitted from such receptions. The em peror will unveil a monument to the old emperor, probably emphasizing the im portance of tne.occasion with a political and historical speech. The speech will be followed by the march past of the troops, the veterans and the civic societies. There will be a banquet at the castle in the evening, a big tattoo by the massed military bands and a generai illu mination. On Sept. 5. the First assembly corps, which for the time being is to be commanded directly by the emperor, will have a grand parade. On the following morning the emperor will lead the corps away toward Braunsburg to meet the Seventeenth corps advancing from El- hing. The emperor, empress and king will visit Count Dolma at his Sobol bitten castle on Aug. 10, when the emperor will also take the field at the head of his corps. On Aug. 12 a great battle will be fought, the First corps, led by the em peror, defeating the Seventeenth aud driving them toward Thorn. Among the guests at the maneuvers will be Geoltz Pacha, a German soldier in the Turkish service, and seventeen Turk ish officers who have come north to enter the German army. The end of the im perial programme involves the concen tration of the entire Third army corps in Berlin on 25. This corps is generally garrisoned througbot Branden burg, but will be brought together here with its full 30,000 men to respoud to the emperor's alarm signal. After this demonstration, which is sure to turn the city topsy-turvy while it lasts, there will be the formal closing of the military season with a parade on the Tempelhofer field. The radical dailies are not pleased with this elaoorate pro gramme. As the thousands of troops to be concentrated hero must receive 12 cents extra pay daily per head, and must be transi>orted aud cared for at still greater expense, the emperor is regarded as rather too extravagant. As there havo been five deaths from cholera within the last few days, a special cholera station will be established for the protection of troops during the maneuvers. The Emperor s holidays have benefited his health noticeably. Since his return he has thrown himself with tremendous energy into military and political affairs. The newspapers record his many achieve ments and plans to considerable length, lie has confirmed the sentence of an offi cer who insulted a schoolmaster serving in tho reserve, writing on the margin of the report: “I never before supposed that there was such a boor in my army.” The officer hastened to throw up his com mission after learning of this comment on his conduct. The emperor has given notice of his intention to give five bells to the Emperor William I. Memorial church in Berlin. Last week he ordered Von Werner to paint a picture of him congrat ulating Field Marshal Von Moltke ou his 90th birthday. The capture of fourteen anarchists some ten days ago was the beginning of a series of important discoveries which is still in progress. The police have found secret meeting places, frequented by an archists. Bremen, Lubeck. Lundensbeid, Nordhausen, Mainz, Kixdorf, Forst, Weissenfels, Weisbaden, Halle. Hamburg, Altona, Hummelsburg and llusseldorf. They have learned also that there are an archist groups in Leipsic, Magdeburg and Frankfort, though still unable to find the moetfng plates in these three towns. Tho first result of these discoveries is the government's decision to increase the po lice in Berlin, where many anarchist meetings have been held in the last six months. A spec ial credit for this purpose will be proposed in parliament. The emperor’s prize, which is to be rowed for hereafter at the annual regatta at Greanau, is a large silver tankard, handsomely ornamented and valued at *1,200. The race for it will be open to all university crews from England or Ger mauy. If Englishmen win tho priz.o, a German crew must go to England to get it back. Tho Hamburg aud Munich clubs will send crews to the third European rowing congress, which will be opened at Macon on sept. 15. A military scandal of the first magni tude was reported yesterday from Mareinwader. A mess dinner of brigade ofti< ers was celebrated there early in the week, and 100 of tho guests got drunk. They formed a line with the band nt tho head and marched through the streets. Some were without helmets or caps. Others were without coats and all bran dished swords or canes. Their singing brought out a big crowd of boys uml roughs, who fell in behind and jeered and ridiculed the rest of the procession. All ot the officers will be courtmartialed. Peruvian Insurgents. Ixindon. Aug. 27.—A dispatch to tho Times from Lima says: "A band of 600 iusurgents, armed with Winchester rifles, is reported to be moving northward on the southern frontier. The government has sent further re-enforcements south aud a collision is daily expected.” TO END THE LORDS. Demonstration at yde Park Against the British Upper House. London, Aug. 26.—The natioual league, for the abolition of the Iluuse of Lords, made a demonstration iii Hyde Hark to day. It has been much advertised and was expected to be an imposing affair, j but it was a fiasco. Hardly 10,OIK)persons were present. William O'Brien, Dr Tanner and i Thomas Curran, all Irish members of; parliament, delivered the principal speeches. They elicited little enthusi- j asm. William O'Brien warned the gov ernment that the continuation of tho I Irish supjiort would depend on its fidelity to the crusade against the lords and their policy of blocking the way to reform. While the conservative journals treat the anti-I.ords' demonstration as a fizzle, the Daily News contends that it was suc cessful and estimates the number of per sons who gathered round the platforms at 160,000. The News adds that the pro cession was small because most persons walked to the park independently of tho organizations. THE EASTERN WAR. Perpetrators of More Outrages on Missionaries Punished. London, Aug. 27.—A dispatch from Tien-Tsin to the Times says: “An im perial edict, which has just appeared, condemns the officers responsible for tho recent outrages on missionaries and or ders that they he beheaded. The actual criminals are rebuilding the chapels, uud liberal compensation will bo given to relatives of tho victims. Li Hung Chang lias expressed regret to tho British minister. Jt is reported in Yokohoma that fifty Japanese camphormakers in Formosa have been massacred. YACHTSMEN DROWNED. The Boat They Sailed in is Found Floating Bottom Up. London, Aug. 26.—The first mate and the caterer of tho yacht Britannia and an engineer of a steam yacht anchored near the Britannia started to go ashore yesterday ir. a sailboat.

Because of the accident it is expected that the Prince of Wales will order the Britannia not to take part tomorrow in Lite regetta of the Royal Yacht Club off Torquay, in which she is entered.

The inhabitants of some of the places affected were terribly frightened, thinking there was about to be a repetition of the dis aster tnat occurred some little time ago. They tied to the fields and other open places for safety. So far as known no persons were killed. GLOOMY PROSPECTS. Comment of the London News on the Nicaraguan Canal. T.ondon, Aug. 27 —The Daily News com ments on the quarrel on the Mosquito reservation as affecting the Nicaragua canal. It holds that the prospects of the undertaking are extremely gloomy. “Tho work can be carried out,” it says, ‘ only by the support of American and British capitalists. As the United States would certainly soiz.e the canal in the event of war with any great power, the canal must be cut by Americans or not at all.” ANXIOUS ABOUT PARIS.

London, Aug. 27.—The Paris corre spondent of the Times says that members of the Orleans family*are going to Stowe to see the Count of Paris, whose broken health excites tho greatest fears.

Fears for American Tourists, Two Parties of Whom Were on the Sea During the Storm One Thousand Lives Lost, Some by Drowning, Others Crushed Under Falling Houses and Trees. St. Mo., Aug. 26. —A special cablegram to the Globe-Democrat from St. Petersburg says: “A wiud of death. No other name ian describe tlio cyclone that swept across the Sea of Azov yes terday. It will be impossible for days yet to compute the damage done, hut it is almost certain that at least 1,000 people have perished, some by drowning and others by being crushed under falling houses and trees. The excitement is great among the American colony in this city, for it is feared that at least two parties of Amer ican tourists were on the Sea of Azov at the time the wind did its deadly work. At Marianople over 200 of the people were killed and nine-tenths of the houses destroyed. At a fishing village named Nogaisk all the men were out at sea. The town was destroyed and none of the boats returned to shore. At the hour of the latest report not one of the steamers that touch at the port of Berduinsk had arrived. Fears are expressed that every craft in the sea has gone to the bottom, and that every passenger is drowned. When tho wind swept over the northern end of Azov it took anew course, going southerly along the coast of the land of the black Cossack. In turn, Eisk and Achuev were ravaged, each town being almost totally de stroyed. Telegraphic communication with this district is suspended, and it is impossible to learn the extent of the destruction, but at least 1,000 persons must have died on the two shores. The storm as nearly as can now now be learned, seemed to suddenly lose its force near Temrink and passed o.T with compara tively quiet southerly winds over the Black sea. DEATH IN THE BATH. A Young Mau Killed by Lightning While in Bathing. Atlantic City, N. J., Aug. 26.—William Carr, aged 20 years, was instantly killed this afternoon by a bolt of lightuing while in bathing in company with two young women. Ho had just entered the surf, and had but risen from a dive beneath a breaker, when the Hash came, the first intimation of a coming storm, and the bolt struck him with a fatal shock. His com panions. the Misses Farnum, were withia ten feet of him when the boll descended. They suffered a severe electrical shock, and were prostrated by fright at the sight of their companion's lifeless body. There were hundreds of people in the surf near by aud thousands on the strand and beach who saw the fatal flash and the mark it struck. There was an instant panic among the bathers, who more or less felt the radiating shock, aud they hurried out ou to the strand, as if fearful of another visitation of the de stroying element. Although restoratives were promptly applied, young Carr could not be revived. His death is said to be the first by lightning ever occurring at this resort. ‘‘HOW MUCH FOR THISP” An Evangelist Who Stumped for Breckinridge and Emptied tho Hall. Lexington, Ky., Aug. 26.—The famous evangelist, George O. Barnes, delivered a sermon in the court house hero to-night, which electrified his large audience, as it was a poworful appeal to all Christians to vote for Col. Breckinridge for congress. He cited Bible authority to prove that he was right, and said he pitied the preachers who had so little of the spirit of Christians in them as to denounce the colonel. These remarks created a won derful effect on his hearers. About twenty of them got ut> and went out, and one man asked Barnes in a loud voice: •‘How much did you got for this;” Ex-State Treasurer S. G. Sharp, who is a strong Breckinridge man, went to tho interrupter and told him to hush. Ho soon left. For a while the scene was an exciting one, some cheering tho preacher, others condemning him and all wroufght up to the highest pitch. Such a scene has seldom boon witnessed here at a religious meeting, blit quiet was finally roster, and, and Barnes concluded his address by begging his hearers to be forgiven. KOLBITES WILL CONTEST. They Will Set Up a Legislature and Elect a Senator. Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 2(5.—A special to the Commercial-Appeal from Birming ham, Ala., says: “A prominent republi can who was active in Kolb’s interest during the recent campaign, is authority for the statement that the Kolbites will, in November, when tho regular legisla ture meets, convene a legislature of their own. elect a United States senator to suc ceed Morgan, who will, it is thought, be republican, and adjourn. •‘They will then let their senator con test with Morgan, who will be re-elected by the regular legislature for the latter’s seat. The Kolbites hope to have their man seated, as they believe the republi cans will control the United States Sen ate next year. This will, it is thought, be the extent of the dunl government of the Kolbites. as they cannot hope to pre vent Oates from being declared governor.” BATTLING BROTHERS. Tennesseeans Fight With Fatal Re sults Two Killed. Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 26.—1n tho little town of Pine, Tenn., this morning, Wil liam Shaw and Bob Constor, brothers in law, had a terrific difficulty over an axe.

The Bennington is now being fumigated. Several of the crew have been allowed their liberty, and there is evidently uo serious malady aboard. BANKER CLEWS’ VIEWS. Tho Financial Outlook as Seen From Wall Street. New York, Aug. 25.—The past week has afforded a fair specimen of the sort of effects the eud of tariff susjienso has in store for Wall street. The feeling is that of universal relief from a universal ob struction. The way lias been opened to a resumption of trade and enterprise in every direction; and in ail interests thero is a disposition to resume operations on something approaching a normal scale. There are no longer any great fears, nor any reasons for timidity, overhanging the markets. In every branch of trade, stocks of merchandise are in a starved condition; and tho reasons which have for fifteen months caused buyers tespursue a policy of hand-to-mouth supply are disappearing. Asa rule, prices of merchandise are un jirecedeutedly low ; so that if the purchas ing ability of consumers lias been les sened, that difficulty is offset by a pro portionate reduction in tho cost of living and m the amount of outlays at large. Credits, as a rule, are In a sound and wholesome condition; so that the mer chant who desires to enlarge his stock and extend his trade can have tho need ful time facilities, and at exceptionally low rates of interest. These conditions certainly lay the basis for a sound and healthy revival of busi ness. There is in tho intrinsic state of affairs little to suggo.st misgivings as to the future; there is, on the contrary, much calculated to establish confidence in a continuous, steady, stable and con servative course of trade. The country has learned some serious lessous and therefore is disposed to be sober; but it is also very hungry for more trade and better prolits, and is therefore disposed to turn to active account every chance for improving both. For tho last four years, the perception of a coming chango in our tariff policy has had a more re pressing effect upon enterpriso than is generally supposed: and tho fact that that change has at last come, with little prospect of its being much disturbed for some years to come, prepares the way for many long postponed undertakings. The fact of the common cheapness of materials and of the quite genearl reduction of wages has a very direct tendency to invite revival in certain important branches of trade, especially those connected with building, machine plant, publlce improvements and railroads. How far the reduced scale of prices and the exemption of raw mater ials from duty may enable us lo iucrease our export trade remains to be soen : iu tho meantime, however, it is a hopefully significant fact that last year’s reduction in values was attended by an increase in our exports of * n,(HM),OiK), us compared with the year 1892-3. The recovery that now seems to he set ting in is something broader than a re vival from tho effects of last year’s panic. That crisis, though immediately incident to the great silver fight, embraced also the effects of tho deeper derangements that set in with the great Barings sus pension, and of which that failure was but a symptom. Those derangements were largely In the nature of over-produc tion, over-speculation, over-trading, ami were world-wide in their influence, and their effects still continue in the persistent depression of trade in every European nation. If 'he recovery from these four years of reaction first makosits appearance in tho United States, it is nothing more than might be expected from the greater resiliency of our re sources and from the fact that we havo been less intimately connected with the disturbing causes than have other coun tries. It is reasonable to hope, however, that recovery on this side the Atlantic will tend to stimulate improvement on tho other side: and thus it may quite possibly happen that the foreign markets, both commercial and financial, will respond to the improving tendency in our own. AN OTTAWA BLAZE. Extensive Conflagration Requiring Hard Work to (Suppress It. Ottawa, Out., Aug. 26.-A big con flagration visited Ottawa this afternoon, starting in piles of lumber belonging to John R. Booth in the suburb of Roehester villo. The fire spread rapidly owing to the difficulty of getting water and soon got beyond the control of the brigade, ex tending toward the city, until 6 o’clock, when tho wind changed and it then pro ceeded north and south. Tho territory covered by the fire was about ten acres.

V | WEEKLY, t TIMES- AW ELK. 1 A YBAR. H THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. Republicans Still Plotting to Suppress Democratic Campaign Thunder. Mr- Blanchard Effectually Blocks Any Effort to Provide for Cloture in the Senate Rules—Louisiana Planters Enter Suit for Heavy Sums of Sugar Bounty Money. Washington, Aug. 26.—1f there ever had been a lingering hope of more legisla tion during the remainder of this session of congress, that hope was dispelled by a remark made behind closed doors Friday afternoon by Mr. Quay, that it was un derstood that thero should be no more legislation at this session in connection with contested matters. This was ac quiesced in, aud a few moments later an adjournment was had. The closing daya of the session have been marked by a number of peculiar incidents, and the un expected has frequently happened. One of tho incidents referred to has been the transaction of legislative business behind closed doors. Senators of both parties have a number of measures that require only the final ac tion of the Senate to enact them, but the republicans were not willing to provide the quorum nor would they permit the business to proceed in the open session by unanimous consent, for fear tho demo crats would, by some moans, find the op portunity to make the campaign speeches they had prepared. For this reason legis lative business, against which no objec tion was made, was transacted behind closed doors by general consent Thursday and Friday. Under this arrangement no speeches could he made, and tho record was prevented from becoming the vehicle for the dessemlnation of alleged campaign, literature. Republicans were not, however, the only ones who offered objection to the consideration of contested matters. Mr. Blanchard has effectually blocked, for this session at least, any effort to change the rules so as to provide for cloture. Mr. Blackburn wanted to have his com mittee sit during recess and consider the many amendments to the rules that have been offered to his committee. He asked consent to this arrangement IViday, but Mr. Blanchard, who sees in cloture the possibility of free sugar, entered au em phatic objection. There will probably be no legislation of any sort to-morrow or Tuesday. To-mor row's Bcsiou will probably ho short, af fording more than anything else an op portunity for the Vice President to an nounce his signature to various bills. A few odds and ends may he cleared up, hut nothing more than that. Tuesday tho President will semi a message with his approval or disapproval of the various matters that reach him at the last mo ment. and at 2 o’clock the second session of the Fifty third congress will stand ad journed with out a day. son's FOB HEAVY SUMS. Judge Morris Marks of New Orleans, representing a number of the Louisiana sugar planters, is here for tho purpose of entering suits in the United States court of claims for the recovery of the sugar bounty for tho year 1894-95. The petition recites the provision of the McKinley law, that on and after July 1, 1891, until July 1, lists, "certain bounties shall be paid to the growers of sugar, upon certain pr scribed conditions as to the filing of bonds and taking out of licenses,” etc. It recites that, for the pres ent year, all these formalities have been complied with, and have been formally accepted by the United States; that under the provisions of the section quoted, the planters have gone on and enlarged the areas of sugar planted, secured advances from their brokers, and have made their crops, and they demand that the United States shall carry out their part of tho contract. The total amount of bounty expected to accrue on this year's crop will be somewhere in the neighborhood of *11,000,000. LAST BUSINESS OF THE BOOSE. But one item of business can he prophe sied of the House this week, and that is the one which has been desired by those charged with the management of its af fairs -adjournment. According to the terms of the resolution agreed to Friday, Speaker Crisp’s gavel will fall at 2 o’clock Tuesday afternoon in token of tho close of the pres ent session. It is not expected that any business will be transacted in the in terim certainly nothing of any impor tance. A few privale bills may bo passed aud some additions made to the calendar upou reports from committees, hut thut is all. On Tuesday a Joint committee of the House and Senate will be apiioinled to wait upon the President and ask him If he has any further communication to make to congress, and upon its report that he has nothing to sa.v, the two houses will be declared adjourned.
