AMEBICAN CATTLE. Its Ahutting Out by Germany Not Betal latten but a sanitary eUsars. WsamTorox, Nov. 7.-The German embassy here repeat the statement given out in Berlin that the prohibition of Ameroian cattle by the German gov ernment is not an act of retaliation, but a more sanitary nmasure. Information has been telegraphed to this country, it is said, from 1tigh ofliciale of the German foreign ofilce. that some of the cattle re cently arriving from America were die eased, and under these circumstances it had been deemed advisable to shut out all importations until the German oill. clial are satisfied of their healthfulnese. This action, it is asserted, would have been taken even if this country had not imposed a discriminating duty on Ger man beet sugar. The German foreign office is constrained to believe that the administration will make every effort to have the discriminating duty abolished; but meanwhile, it Is said, the embargo on American cattle will be raised at the first practicable moment, without refer enne to what congress may do with the sugar question. The German embassy has received no information as yet regarding the estab lishruont of an agricultural bureau at Washington and several other large capitals. The proposition will be con sidered by the reichstag, and it is thought that its action will be favorable. HARTMAN AND HUNT. Ioth the Republican Caudidates Are No Doubt ElectedI.

BY A NEV ROU'TE t Railroad to I,:.trlpe via IIluseon' liay Straits Is Set iouily ('on templated. THE PLAN IS PRACTICABLE By the Land Portion, But the Water Route Is Open to Gre.ve Obtjections. WAsaINrTON, Nov. 7.-To Europe via Hudson straits has a queer sound, but English and Canadian capital seems to be at last interested to make such a route familiar. A company just now has t its representatives at Ottawa for the purpose of getting a charter to construct Sa railroad from Winnipeg to the Sas katchewan, and thence to Fort Churchill, on Hudson's bay, a distance of 700 miles in all. The project is fully a dozen years old, and as early 'se 1884 the Dominion par liament, in r-'-ponse to solicitations for a subsidy for et,, proposed new railroad, sent out observation parties to report upon the navigability of Hudson bay and straits. A section of railroad has even been built north from Winnipeg for many miles; but the idle rails have gath ered rust and the ties are overgrown with the grass of the prairie. It was the tirst practical step taken in the early days of the Hudson bay project, but its advocates have never quite lost heart in spite of the difficulties of interesting capital in it and now are pushing it in earnest once more. The central fact on which the project depends is that the Hudson bay route to Europe is the shortest for the grain and food products, not only of Manitoba, but Uncle Sam's northwestern border. The distance from Winnipeg to Montreal is about 1,400, while from Winnipeg to Fort Churchill It is only about one-half as great; and as the remaining distance from L'verpool to each is about the same, there is evidently a saving of 700 miles by the new road. From Pembina, in North Dakota. the distance is about 1,000 shorter to Liverpool by way of Hudson bay than by way of New York. Winnipeg, too, is only the beginning of a largo wheat area in Canada's northwest y.rotinrra COUNTRY TO OI'PEN ('I'. Sttlebments are found scattered near ly a thousand miles west to Calgary, or the Canadian Pacific road, and through the North Saskatchewan region to or be yoend Edmonton. The saving in dis I tance to Edmonton by the Fort Church. 1 ill route over the Montreal, with propel t rail and river facilities, would be. it is said, about 1.300) miles. F'or grain could come down by river to Lake Winnipeg and only 400 miles of rail would then be required to reach Fort Churchill, the point of shipment to Europe. All alone the valley of the haskatchewan river this ameni double advantage would pre I vail. In some parts of North Dakots and Montana, by connecting the Cans dian Pacific railway to Winnipeg and thence to Hudson's Bay the gain in distance over the New York route is reckoned at nearly 1,000 miles. There are really two elements, how, ever, in the new undertaking. One is the railroad, for the construction ol which the money is chiefly required while the other is the water route, o, which, after all, the question of success may chiefly turn. There are two rail routes to the Hudson's Bay terminus, one of them ending at Port Nelson, at the mouth of the Nelson river, in lati tude 57 degrees, 050 miles from Winni. peg, and the other at Fort Churchill. A 1 road built over the former route would travel over a barren wilderness but would be easier of construction, while the Fort Churchill route is through a country which offers opportunities of development and consequent local traffic. NAVIGATION THROUGH THE STRAITT. But the real question of practicability for the new grain.carrying route is the transportation by water rather than by land. Hudson's bay, which is practically a great inland sea, having an area of about half a million square miles, or half as great as that of the Mediterra nean, is too extensive to be entirely frosen over throughout the year. But the great trouble Is with the compara tively narrow Hudson straits. Repeated observations show that at utmost the straits, which at some points are leis than 70 miles wide, and are more than 500 miles long from Cape Chudleigh to the bay, are navigable for only three or four months each year. Reference has been made to the observation parties seant out by the Dominion government in the Neptune in 1884. They were stationed along the bay and straits; by the following summer the Alert, being seat to relieve them, was caught iano lose pack near the entrance to the -t',ity , L t.. o,-ti~l, of ,in;,, and was hrIl f,,r there our t, being then forced to put aIc.i; to Newfou1dallwl tfr repairs. In August dhe tried aogin, and, in spite of icetitlld and a etror,c tidal drift, found an open passage, ran fromn the straits to York Factory in five days, reached all the stations and brought off most of the men. Captain Gordon con sidered the straits navigable by suitably butt steamers for four months in the yeat by following winding courses or by drifting with the ice, as the whalers do. TItE INCOME TAX. Treasur3 Department Making Arrange Iments for Its Enforcement. WASIJNcTroN, Nov. 8.--The work pre. liminary to carrying into effect the new income tax is going forward as rapidly as its nature will permit, under the direction of Mr. Wm. H. Pugh, who, on October 5 last, was appointed superin tendent of the income tax. A number of complicated and interest ing questions have arisen under former lawn, and anticipating that questions will arise in the future of equal import apoa, it is essential for their solution to understand what has been the former legilation of congress, the decisions of the:bourts, and the rulings of the de partment upon the subject of the in come tax. With this view Mr. Pugh has bees occupied since his appointment in exa.ining and preparing a digest of the cout decisionsand the department rul ings compiled under their respective headings. He has also prepared a com parison of all the former laws upon the income tax. arranged so that all the pro. vislons heretofore made upon the same subject shall appear properly grouped and any one at a glance can see the vari oune hanges and modifications that have takes place. There have been several acts upon the subject of the incometax. The first was passed August 5, 1861. Under this act, however, nothing was done. The act failed to provide many provisions con tained in the subsequent legislation both as.to the subjects of taxation and the methods of collection. These were pro. vided for in subsequent acts. The sec ond act was passed July 1,1862; the third act June 30, 1804; the fourth act March 3, 1865; the fifth act March 2, 1807. Un der the first act 8800 was the amount re mers vt from taxation and the rate of tax was 5 per cent on all sums over that amount. Under the act of July 1, 1862, the amounts reserved from tax were as follows: If the income exceeded $t11( and did not exceed 810,(n10 a duty of 5 per 'entum upon the amount exceeding 10X;. Under the third act (;010 was ex emp:td and the duty was 5 per cent on the et.ess; under the fourth and fifth eats 31,0(00 was free from tixation and the amount of tax was 5 per cent on. the at aut to excens of that s.Uom.

S--Mrs. Cuthbert tlullitt, who has sued her husband for divorce, has exrlained in an interview Imre fully the reasons why she insti tut,.d proceedings against the famous geintleman of the old school. She said: •'L positively decline to discuss n.y marital affairs at length. I stated in my allegations what I had to say, but would add that halt has not been told of my persecutions by that man. I refrained from being very severe on him because of his great age. "I have waited a whole year since our separation before brirging suit for di vorce, thinking providence would spare nme that duty that I owe to my peace of mind. I was as mild as I could be, be cause if I had brought out the whole truth about him it would ruin him in this community. "I felt compelled out of self respect to bring the suit, as he has been circulating falsehoods about me and following me up from place to place until my life was rendered sa hell on earth. He is old, and jealous suspicions are more than I could stand, so I determined to bring my suit for divorce and rid myself of him." "What did be say about you?" was asked. "A number of mean things that friends told me, all of which were untrue and not worth repeating. It he could sub stantiate any of them he would never have let me rast." A YOUNG FOOL.

The niture i('zari-na Is Admitted Into the Itu iall THE ATTENDANT CEREMONIES Were Conducted With Great Pomp and Witnessed By a Not able Gathering. Loesoo, Nov. 8.-The Princess Alix has been received into the orthod x church. The ceremony took place in the chapel of the imperial palace. She re ceived the title of Grand Duchess of Blagovernaja Velikaja Knagina. After the ceremony of confession she received the orthodox sacrament. The ritual ob served required no denunciation cf her former faith. The priest merely asked the princess to express her belief in the trinity, and then to repeat the dog mas of the orthodox faith. She did so and was then led by' a priest into the church and up to a table, on which were vessels contaicing consecrated oil. In the meantime a choir was singing psalms. The princess knelt before the table. After the offering of prayers and the singing of hymns, the priest said: "Arise my beloved; arise in the fear of God." The princess stood up and said: "I vow to remain steadfast in the orthodox Catholic church to my last breath. I vow that that I acknowledge this faith and rejoice in obeying its laws. As a sign of this sincere vow, which comes from my heart, I kiss the cross of the Savior, amen." T;.en she knelt and the priest gave absolution. After numerous hymns and prayers, in which all the members of the czar's fam ily were named, the priest anointed the princess with consecration oil on the top of the head, nose, lips, ears, hands and feet. Afterward he touched these parts with a sponge dipped in holy water. iHe then proclaimed the princess' law ful convt,;eon to the Riussian orthodox church, and exhorted those present to pray for her. It is now stated that Grand Duke Alexis Michaelovitchb, a cousin of the czar, who some years ago was disgraced and banished to Caucasus, was miot re fused permission to see the late czar to, as it was said at the time, receive his forgiveness 'l'he grand duke is sufl'r ing with consumption, and a leu he ar rived he was too ill to lad from the steamer on which he was tr. uttling Hil brother, 1;raud I)ake Ahlxand-.r, his il other'e wife, acdt Grand Duchtess 'ernla, wealt on lhoard thle st,,earer to meet him. in the, afturrl, ,, ho Bailed for San tIeino, Italy.
