J. H. EBXILL. Uresident. )
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.

An Unrecognizable Body Found on the
Beach of Lake Superior.
Duluth, Minn., Aug. 26.—C01. Robert G.
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.
It Jumped the Track and Capsized
Down an Embankment.
Newark, N. J., Aug. 26.—A serious
trolley car accident occurred at 7 o’clock
this evening on the line of the
Suburban Traction company be
tween Ottowa and Eagle Rock, in
which fifty persons were more or less se
riously injured. The car, wnich con
tained about eighty people, while de
scending a steep grade just opposite
Mountain avenue, became unmanageable
and dashed into a curve at a terrific rate
of speed, breaking thetiange of one of the
forward wheels The car left the track
and capsi?.ed down a slight embankment.
Broken glass liew in all directions aud
the excited occupants were thrown into a
confused mass.
Two little boys named Lloyd and Coyle,
aged 4 and 6 respectively, were probably
fatally hurt. Mrs. Prank Davis of
Bloomfield was also seriously hurt. It is
said that the brakes on the car failed to
work, and the motorman losiug his head,
did not turn on the reverse current,
which would have stopped the car.
The Recsnt Deal With Baron Erlanger
Alleged to Be Completed.
St. Louis, Aug. 2(5.—A special to the
Republic from Cincinnati says: “A cable
gram from London announces that at a
meeting of the Alabama Great Southern
directory the Cincinnati. Hamiltoh and
Dayton representatives were seated, giv
ing them control of the board. The effect
of this is to oust tho Briee-Thomas syndi
cate from the Queen and Crescent, the
Alabama Great Southern controlling the
lease of the Cincinnati Southern and also
the lower lines, or that part of tho system
beyond Meridian, Miss. Altogether I,HOO
miles are added to the Cincinnati, Hamil
ton and Dayton, and a route to the Gulf
gained. This completed the recent deal
with Baron Erlanger.
Coal Operators Threaten to Resume
Work With Non-Union Men.
Cleveland. 0., Aug. 26.—News received
from the Massilon coal fields is to the
effect that the miners have refused to
accept the ultimatum of the operators,
which provided that they should resume
work to-morrow upon a schedule of wages
based on the Columbus scale. It is said
that many of the miners are now' remov
ing their tools from the mines, and it is
believed that the operators will carry out
their intention of resuming work to-mor
row with non-union men. The miners of
the Massilon district, about !5,00 in num
ber, have been on strike since Feb. 17.

Fostoria, 0., Aug. 26.—A decided sensa
tion was created here by the marriage
last night of the Rev. Thompson of tho
Methodist church of this city to Miss
Bibbie Hawk, who is a mulatto. She is
an attractive young woman, well edu
cated, refined and a great church worker.
She was a member of the Rev. Thomp

tention. His congregation remonstrated

he was given an Indefinite leave of ab
sence and the church was closed.

police officer* were notified by the man
agement of the Bristol mill to-night, that
their attendance at the mill gates to

Great Rowing Regatta Military
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
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-
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.

Comment of the London News on the
Nicaraguan Canal.

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.”

Terrible Devastation by the Cyclone
in the Sea of Azov.
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.
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
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.
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.”

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.
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.
On this were between six and eight mil
lion feet of lumber belonging to
Booth which was valued at about *150,600,
also six railway cars with lumber, be
longing to tho Export Lumber Company
and the Parry Sound railway bridge. The
Cedar street public school was also
burned. It was valued at *B.OOO. It is be
lieved the firo was the work of incen
Aftei lOo’clock before the brigade had
it under control it was burning brightly.
Should a heavy wind arise tho result
would be terrible ns the territory sur
rounding tho fire is covered with lumber
piles and wooden houses.
An Extensive Boston Manufacturing
Firm Makes an Assignment.
Boston, Mass., Aug. 26.—The Eaton and
Stephens Manufacturing Company, manu
facturers of hoots and shoes, with facto
ries at Holllston and Cocbituate, has
voted to make an assignment for the
benefit of its creditors to Arthur K. Nash,
one of its directors. Tho assignee
states that the company has been doing a
fairly prosperous manufacturing business
but thut an account of stock taken at the
Holliston factory last July showed such
a shrinkage from that taken Jan. 1, 1*94,
when the company was organi/ed. that
the above course was determined upon.
He thinks that the assets ought lobe
sufficient to pay all creditors in full. The
assets and liabilities of ttie company, ac
cording to its balance sheet Aug. 25,
1894. are: Assets, *332,385; liabilities,

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,
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.
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
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

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

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.

Enormous Business Handled by the
Union Pacific Without a Parallel.
Cheyenne, W.vo.. Aug. 26. —The enor
mous fruit business handled by the Union
Pacific this year is without parallel in the
history of the traffic. Shipments over
tho Wyoming division now average nine
or ten trains each day, and the officials
think the rush will continue at least a
mouth. One hundred and sixty-seven
special trains of California green fruit
have already been shipped over the lino
to the eastern markets. Few shipments
were made until July 15, after tho strike
was declared off.
