HiOIILANGER'S n'IClitE. llabits of tihe GeneraIl Iefre He ('omi mnilted the Act. Bltsscni.s, Sept. 30.-There are, as usual, in such cases many contradictory reports circulating in regard to Gen.Blou lunger's behavior previous to his suicid',. Folr instance, it was said shortly after his death became known that the gen eral had not in any way allowed his friends to form any idea as to his inten tions. This evening those who formed his entourage admit that directly the contrary was the fact. They now say that recently he has frequently openly avowed a desire for death, and it is even added that the general has several times of hInte even made attempts to take his own life. The consequence has been that he hbts been watched as closely as possible by friends, who still remain loyal t to him at the low water of his fortunes. V Even the latter appear to have finally grown tired of their task and to have de termined to resign their positions as c guardians of the fallen leader's life. With this object in mind his friends in this city recently warned the General's nence and the latter's has band that the ex-minister of war who, at one time was looked upon as a man to r lead "la revanche" enthusiasts of Berlin, a was so dependent as to be apparently ti determined to commit suicide. This niece and her husband arrived some days ago at the General's hotel in U Rue Montoyer and so impressed were el they with his demeanor that one of the d first things they did was to cause all weapons found in his apartments to be taken away and hidden where he could n° not get at them. General Boulanger it must have noticed the precautions which gi were being taken to save his life and unknown to his neice a ana ner husband he must have managed to secure and hide from them the pistol with which he eventually shot himself. Even the general's valet, who had been instructed to use his utmost endeavors to find and obtain possession of any weapon the general might have about him, seems to have been cleverly de ceived in this fatal instance. Gen. Boul anger, according to the stories told this evening, made no secret of his weariness of life since the collapse of his party and particularly so since the death of Mme de Bonnemain. His friends now recall the fact that when the coffin lid was finally closed over the remains of his mistress he kept on repeating aloud in heart-broken tones "Au revoir et a bien tot." Every day about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, it has now become known, General Boulanger since Mmoe de Bon nemain's death has gone to the cemetery at Ixelles and has deposited some hand. some floral emblem, generally a crown upon her grave. He would stay by the grave of his beloved friend for some moments, some times for an hour either engaged in prayer or in deep thought. Over the grave itself the general had caused a pretty white tombstone to be erected and at its head stood a broken column inscribed "Marguerite 1855-1891." A few days ago the unfortunate gen eral deposited on Mame. de Bonnemain's grave a handsome crown of flowers bear ing on it the words "A bientol Marguer ite." The family of the general and servants of the hotel in Rue Montoyer were therefore somewhat surprised when this morning they heard him order his landau at a much earlier hour than usual, saying that today he was going to Ix elles cemetery at 10 in the morning in stead of 4 in the afternoon. The fa.aily and servants at first paid little attenthoi to the change in the gen eral's plans and nobody seems to have had the slightest idea that he intended to commit suicide. Relatives persistently decline to furnish the public with any definite information as to written declarations which he has left behind him. Yet it is known the dead man prepared several documents for publication. All property and docu ments of Gen. Boulanger have been placed in sealed receptacles by the mag istrates. In addition to a photograph of Mme. de Bonnemain a Iockof white hair woven into the shape of a heart was found next to Boulanger's heart. Thi general had written a long letter to his mother an nouncing his departure on a long voyage and bidding her not to be uneasy. Rooms to rent. Apply to J. J. Rich ardson, Fourth avenue south.

WAsHImNTON, Oct. 1.-Following is the monthly weather and crop bulletin issued by the weather bureau. It is ac companied by charts and a tabular statement showing thermal conditions and general distribution of rains which prevailed throughout the United States during the month of September as de termined from regular telegraphic re ports of the weather bureau. This monthly statement of the more import ant meteorological elements is of special interest. owing to the unusual condi tions which existed during the month of September and as it forms a supplement to the weekly weather crop bulletin data it is placed in such form as to enable those who are interested in staple crops to l.eotne familiar with the meterologi cal conditions which prevailed over the principal agricultural districts at close of the crop season. Tho informa tion contained in the present bulletin is of current interest as it presents a state ment of the conditions which forced the rapid maturing of the corn crop and se cured its safety from injury by frost, while at the opening of the month this important crop was from 10 to 15 days late and in danger from frost. Not only is the information thus furnished of cur rent value but it serves as a record for comparison between the actual yield of a more important crop and the meteoro logical conditions wilch prevailed dur ing, the growing season. The month of Septemtber has been warmer and dryer than any previous September of which there is a record in the weather bureau, over the principal agricul tural districts east of the Rocky mountains. The greatest excess in temperature occurred over the northern states where the daily average was from 4 to 8 degrees higher than usual. In the upper Mississippi valley the average daily temperature was from 6 to 8 de grees higher than usual. During the ten days ending September 28. through out the Mississippi and Ohio valleys and the lake region the mean maximum temperature exceeded by from 12 to 15 degrees the normal maximum tempera ture for the third decade of September I and the actual temperatures were ob- f served to he from 2 to 9 degrees higher i than any other that the bureau has re ceived from this season of the year. Foreign Politics. NEWv1CARTIE., Oct. 1.--The great annual meeting of liberal delegates from the party associations of England and Wales, which opened today, is the last before the coming general election and must therefore have a permanent influence upon the fortunes of the party. An electorial programme must be definitely declared and so formulated as to be ac cepted by the liberal candidates as un mistakably that of the party. Yet dur ing the past few days, pregnant as this great caucus may be with important is sues, it has been possible to glean little from the liberal papers and not much from current talk, and the floating opin ion of the party circles as to what the federated delegates would do. So far there has been no want of excited interest in the proceed ings. The papers have given much space to chronicling local preparation for the reception of delegates, lists of names and dry disconnected items of the most minor importance, but they failed al most entirely to indicate what must be points of vital interest in the proceed ings. The pary eaders of course know how the federation is to be guided. Schnadhorst above all as the organizer of the federation and the Moltke of the liberal forces knows exactly what their objective point is, but to the mass of delegates even the agents of the meeting remain unknown until the beginning of each day's setting.

A CATTLEMAN TALKS, A Good Year for Ranehmen - Northern Montana Easily Leads for r Quality and Pries. I A TIuaUNE reporter yesterday held h quite an extended conversation with one a of Montana's oldest cattlemen. On the opening of the reservation three years ago he was the very first to drive into it a herd of cattle. His long experience with the business makes him as well I fitted to talk on the question as anyone in the state. "The finest cattle in Montana," he t said, are raised here in the north. The a country termed by some the Milk river e country, and by others the reservation, easily leads in eastern markets and re ceives for its fat kine the largest prices e anywhere paid for western steers. When I was in Chicago some time since I saw some of the best cattle from the Yellow stone go for 84.50, while my own sold for 84.90. Northern IMontana cattle are sought for in Chicago, and seldom stand in the yards longer than an hour or two waiting for a buyer. Since the rally in prices after the big drop some time since they have sold easily at from $4.65 to 84.10." The Home Land and Cattle company nmade the first shipment from this sec tion and succeeded in selling a carload at 85.~2. Right on their heels Floweree Sshipped two trainloads of native cattle and received 8.10. Then in a short time, as you remember, prices took a tumble and these parties stopped ship ping though both have now resumed. The Judith Cattle company is also at the present time shipping from Chinook. With the exception of Power, this en tire company drove their cattle to the Milk River country and fattened them there." "It has been a good year for cattlemen, a very good year. Just now the market is very satisfactory for steers. On in ferior cattle it has of course fluctuated, but on the better grades it has been in the main steady throughout the year. Speaking for myself I have made five shipments. The lowest I received was $4.40, the highest $4.90 and my average was about $4.65. Last year I only shipped about seven hundred head. Picked steers then paid about $42.80. This year I shipped about 1,2(t0 and they will, I think, average about 800. So you can see the difference both in the number shipped and in the price realized. Cattle-men have been holding their cattle, selling only what they were conmpelled to sell and waiting for a year like the present. The Home Land and Cattle company will ship be tween 14,000 and 15,000 head and Flow eree will ship between 5,000 and 6,000. "1 believe you asked me a while ago it any money had been lost on cattle this year. Some of the speculators who bought during high prices at the first of the season may have lost but I don't think any cattle man has. At least none of them seem anxious to quit the busi ness. The Home Land and Cattle com pany, who, as I told you, are shipping some 15,000 or 10,000 are replacing these with others and will soon have about 20,000 new Texans on the range. "No, taking it all in all, it has been a good year and I don't think anyone has much cause to complain." TE STOCK MARKET. Sales of Montana Cattle In the Chicago Market Yesterday.
