St. Louis, Auk. 31. IespaiiiiiRly re linquishing her hold upon the trapeze bur of a hot air balloon, after having accidentally released the parachute upon which hr life depended. Victoria Leltoy, an aeronaut, making her fourth ascension of the week from the grounds of the St. Louis County Fair associa tion. fell 2,600 fet Friday afternoon and was instantly killed. The specta cle was witnessed ly a crowd of over a thousand. It had been preceded by several moments of spellbound horror, the fate of death awaiting the woman having been inevitable from the In stant that the parachute wa torn from Its fastenings and fell clattering to the ground. At 6:10 o'clock the ascension had been made from the east side of the arena of the new county fair grounds near Dwyer station, on the Missouri Pacific railway. At 5:14 o'clock .the tragedy occurred. When George Ooldle of St. Louis, the aero naut's helper, released the balloon for its final upward plunge, the para chute with which the woman's descent was to be made was attached to the side of the balloon, one end of the cord with which it was to be released being held by the aeronaut. Iteletme of the Parachute. When only about sixty feet above the heads of the spectators, there was seen a sudden Jerk of the parachute rope, the release of the parachute fol lowed, and It fell straight to the earth, opening Just as it reached the ground. It Is supposed that an unusually sud den swerving of the balloon caused this, for the woman turned her face, agon ized with fright, downward for one swift Instant, and then began tugging at her left arm, which was passed through an Iron ring attached to the trapeze bar. Her desperate intention plainly was to drop from the height then reached, but before :he had fully torn her arm from the ring, the balloon had reached an elevation nf 200 feet. Then she was afraid to let go, knowing that the fall was certain death. At that Instant her husband, George Hlb bard of Fremont, O., standing among the horror-stricken spectators in the fair gruonds. cryed out: "She's lost my God. she's lost!" A negro In the crowd, his nerve giv ing away under the certainty of the approaching tragedy, ran out from the crowd, fell on his knees, and began praying In a loud voice. Awful Momenta of Huspense. Several women fainted, and the In tensity of the situation was further shown by low groans from the men, whose white faces were upturned toward the still rapidly rising balloon. The woman's helper, George Goldle, was running southward, following the course of the balloon, the pistol with which he was accustomed to signal her when It was safe to release the para chute, and descend, carried, cocked, in his hand, and throughout those first awful moments Victoria LeUoy was seen straining and tugging at the Iron ring of the trapeze bar. At last 'she was successful In this, but It was too late. The next moment she was seen to swing slightly to one side of the trapeze bar clinging to it with her left arm across and grasped her left wrist with the right hand. No cry was heard from her. A white handkerchief that had been carried In the right hand fluttered slowly downward to the ground. The woman was evidently hanging to the bar for life, but It was only a question of a few minutes until her strength must fall her. The bal loon, rising higher and higher, was drifting to the south toward a clump of elm trees on the right bank of a branch of the Hlver Dosperes. How the lloily Fell. Some one In the crowd hud opened his watch as the ascension was begun, and he mec hanically timed the passing minutes. Just four minutes had passed when the woman released her hold on the trapeze bar and fell. For several hundred feet her body went feet first downward, as straight as an arrow. Then she turned and revolved In som ersaults the remainder of the distance, striking In the top of a big elm tree. Goldle, the helper, was nearest to the spot. The upper branches of the elm had been seen to bend down and then sway back as the woman's body crashed through them. When Goldle reached the scene the corpse of Vic toria Le Hoy lay on the ground at the foot of the tree. In falling her back had struck heavily and broken one branch of the tree and her head an ether. Her body was frightfully crushed and broken. Her remains were taken In charge by the fair asso elation, and later an inquest was held, the verdict being death by accident. THE LONE HIGHWAYMAN.

Owing to the roughness of the country, United States Marshall Hall has deemed it beter to rely upon experienced frontiersmen in the attempt to capture the bandits en trenched In Skeleton canyon, naer the New Mexico line, and has recruited sufficient deputies to make the attack without the assistance of troops, which have been ordered to return to Fort Bayard and Fort Grant. Marshal Hall and force will reach the stronghold of the robbers very soon, and expect to attack It at once.

Wilfred La u tier, rumors were afloat as to differences between the governor general and Sir Charles Tupper regarding appointments of po litical friends to office. The corre spondence was laid before the house of commons Saturday. From it it is learned that Immediate ly after the Conservative party was defeated, the then premier proposed appointing a number of his political friends to Judgeships and other Im portant offices. To this Lord Aberdeen demurred, and on Sir Charles Tupper's Insisting that It had always been the practice of retiring ministers to thus fill vacancies, the governor general re plied that he did not desire to do any thing that would embarrass the in coming administration, and flatly re fuesd to approve of any appointments made by the Tupper ministry.

For three days the Inspectors have been hovering about the station district sending decoy letters and trying clerk after clerk. Suspicion at last fell upon Morrlssey. and decoys were mailed that would pass over his desk. Two of the decoys containing marked money ran the gantlet all right. The third was dropped shortly after I o'clock Friday afternoon. A few moments lfore i o'clock the pile was sorted out and the decoy was gone. The two Inspectors placed Morrlssey under arrest.

No Perceptible Increase During the Week. KEPOKT MADE BY BRADSTUEET'S. Rom Improvement I Noticed In Haiti more, Louisville and Kansas City Low er Rate for Foreign Exchange I an En couraging In flue ore Hank at the Larg er Cltle Keport Withdrawal of Deposit Increase In Business Failure. New York. Aug. SI. Bradstreefs says the volume of general business has not Increased within the week Exceptions appear to be at Baltimore, Louisville and Kansas City, which send out more favorable reports as to thc quantities of general mechandlse sold than any other center. Early move ments of crops Is said to be behind the Increased orders. Another encouraging Influence Is found In lower rates for foreign exchange, the movement of $10,000,000 In gold from abroad to the United States, and the expression of opinion that not less than $25,000,000 in gold Is to be Imported In the near fut ure. Conspicuous among checks t" trade are greatly Increased firmness for money at nearly all financial cen ters. As at New York, banks at most larger cities report withdrawals of de posits. In many Instances by country banks, higher rates for call loans, and at some points the practical refusal t make time loans. I'ntil Arter Election. Jobbers and manufacturers report no general Increase In demand for staple merchandise. The tendency of the for mer Is to let the latter cut down pro duction, until scarcity compels freer purchases by wholesalers. Trade opin ion Is that little gain in business need be expected until after the election Merchants In regions 'where oottton and new wheat are moving freely are somewhat hopeful as to prospec ts. TIk record of this week's business failures Inthe I'nlted States shows a large in crease over last week. 320. as com pared with 264. a gain of fifty-four. Compared with the week a year ago, the Increase is 130. and with two years ago the gain is 12. The last week In August. 1893. during the panic, there were 3fiS failures reported, as contrast ed with 320 this week. Total exports of wheat, flour included as wheat, from both coasts of the I'nlted States and from Montreal this week amounted to 3.281. 831 bushels, against 2.5!1.0on bush els last week. 1.R71.0O0 bushels In the week a year ago. and 5.0?2.0O0 bushels three years ago Week In Wall .street. Changes In stock market values for the last week have, on the whole, leen unimportant. The speculation has been of the most strictly professional kind. Commission houses have done, to all appearances, virtually nothing, but the larger operators waited, though at the end of the weea there was an appear ance of covering, which could only mean that the big bvars did not like the situation and that some, at least among the more prominent class of speculators, were Inclined to take the hull side of the market for a turn. A little alternate selling and buying from that quarter summarizes Its operations In our market. The whole speculative situation. In fact, hinged on the action of money and exchange, and on the large Importations of gold, which have followed the break In foreign exchange rates. No Loan Cert I Urates Issued. This and other things would seem to be responsible for the Improved tfne of the market and the decidedly more cheerful feeling which Is now asserting Itself In speculative quarters. Noclear- Ing house loan certificates were Is sued, and It would seem that serious opposition to such action developed In the clearing house, not because the stronger banks would virtually have to carry the ones whose resources were widely distributed, but for the reason that there Is due appreciation of the unfavorable Influence of an undue as sumption at this crisis In the country's financial history of such a postlve con trol over the money market on the part of the banks of this city as th step In question Involved.
