Fire and Building Regulations
Do Not Extend to The
Chicago -*4 -25.Judge "Brentano
during Ihe day issued an injunction
restraining the city of Chicago from
interfering with the lodging of non
union employes in the packinghouses
at the stock yards.
The city announced that an appeal
would be taken to the appellate court.
The injunction was issued in a test
case brought by the H. Hammond
company. Seven additional petitions
were at once filed, following the de
cision of the court, for an extension of
the temporary injunction to all the
packing companies within the stock
yards with the exception of the Omaha
In the Hammond case the court
found that the building in controversy
is not within the fire limits and can
not, therefore, be regulated by the fire
or building ordinances of the city.
Judge Brentano asked that the addi
tional petitions be left with him so
that he could look them over.

Due to Belief That Damage Reports
Chicago, Aug. 25.This was bargain
day on the Chicago board of trade.
Wheat for the September delivery was
marked down from $1.08%, where it
was at the close of the session Tues
day, to 1.03%. There was an even
greater cut for December delivery,
which sold down to $1.04%, as com
pared with $1.09% at the previous
Tuesday coul be "in lots at
$1.06%. The reason for the bearish
attitude of transactions as compared
with the past four or five days was
that the reports from the Northwest
that all the spring wheat had been
eaten up with the rust were believed
to have been grossly exaggerated and
by many are now thought to have been
inspired to a considerable extent by

ber of 1,000 later attacked the Eliza
beth Street, police station, hurled mis
siles at the police and prisoner, hurt

TO ENLARGE FORT SNELLING.
Government Appraisers File Report of
Value of Land.
St. Paul, Aug. 25.The government
appraisers have filed their report of
the value of the 845 acres of land
wanted for the enlargement of the Fort
Snelling military reservation. The
property is found to be worth $112,900.
The appropriation by congress for
this purchase falls slightly short of
the needed amount, being $110,000.
The difference is only $2,900 and the
money will be forthcoming.
The land will be chiefly used for an
infantry target range, which Fort
Snelling has never had, and also as
room for further improvements, which
will make the post one of the largest
in the whole country, with cavalry as
well as infantry and artillery.

ELECTRIC CARS COLLIDE.
Thirty-five People More or Less Seri
Rochester, N. Y., Aug. 25.A headon
collision occurred- during the day on
the Rochester and Eastern railroad
near Pittsford. As far as can be
learned thirty-five people were injured,
some badly, but none fatally.
Details of the accident are very mea
ger owing to the fact that the tele
phone lines of the railroad are down
and communication is shut off. It is
said that the conductor and motorman
of the westbound car disobeyed orders
and attempted to "steal" a switch with
disastrous results. The collision hap
pened at a curve in the road while
both cars were going at a high rate
of speed. Falling glass and splinters
were responsible for many of the
wounds. The shock of the collision
damaged the cars.

large consignments of arms are en
route to Spain and the strictest vigi
lance has been established to prevent
their delivery. The officials of the gov
ernment are very uneasy over the dis
covery, as it indicates that the pacific
protestations of the republicans were
merely a cover for their plotting.
