The principal commercial languages of the world are English, spoken by 100,000- 000 people; Russian. 60/100,000; Germans, SO,000,000; French, 40,000,000, and Italian by 88,000,000, They had a strike in New York and in the row several sugar hogsheads were knocked open on the streets. The smal boys struck for that sugar and had tha best time they have seen in this world. The Canadian customs authorities have seized an American fishing vessel in the lower waters of the St. Laweence river for alleged encroachment of the fishing rights of the Dominion. The matter will no doubt be made the subject of in ternational controversy. The tunnel of Posilippo in Italy is a line specimen of ancient engineering- Millions of human beings have each year, for nearly twenty centuries, passed through it. Roman chariots and other ancient vehicles have left their autographs scraped and scratched into the lining stones and modern wagons and carriages still rub their hubs against it, leaving traces for generations to come. At the funeral of the late King of Hpain an imposing and curious scene oc curred, which, it seems, is a custom pe culiar to that country. When the pro cession reached the monastery connented with the Ecurial Palace, the Duke de Hex lo, the Royal Chamberlain,knocked and requested aemittance for Alfonso. When inside the gates, the Duke unlocked the coffin and called three times in Alfonso’s ear. Then, according to the ritual, he said: “There is no reply. It is true, the King is dead!” He then relocked the coffin and broke his wand of office. A California paper relates that on a farm near Knelling, in Merced county, there is a well 168 feet deep in solid rock, which constantly sends up a large volume of air. When a rain-storm or a strong wind is impending the volume of escaping air increases so as to roar audibly. Ih* well cover is furnished with a vent. By closing this for a few moments the con lined air recovers sufficient force, when liberated, to make a noise like the escap mg Steam of a locomotive. The well tur nishes an abundance of excelland water. A recent study of comparative heights and weights among different classes of population in Great Britan shows that the criminal class average no less than forty live pounds in weight and four and a half inches in height less than their an tagonists, the Metropolitan police. U pared with the general population, too, this class is seen to be eighteen pounds in weight and two inches in statute below the average, standing on about the same plane in physical endowments as lunatics. In nci|uiring Barman, England has got possession of vast forests to leak, which, min i plentiful in India, was becoming iniercially very rare. Of all the wood grown in the East this is the most vain able. It is neither too heavy nor too j hard. It does not warp or split under ex posure to heal or dampness; it contains an essential oil which prevents its as rot ling under wet. condit ions, and at the same time acts as a preservative to iron and repels the destructive white ants; it is, withal a handsome wood, of several vani ties of color and grain, and takes a good polish. Tine latest mail reports from South America are to the effect that the port of Buenos Ayres is rapidly growing in ini portance.

Tuk statement is current that the six companies have entered into a contract to deliver 000,000 Chinese in the Pacific ports of Mexico, and, if there Is any truth in the news, such an immigration of Coles lials will lie apt to have a serious effect on the furniture of our next door neighbor. The Mexican government has always en couraged Chinese immigration, and upon occasion has held out tempting induce ments to the Mongolians, but it may be doubted whether the Mexican statesmen contemplated the possibility ol trails for of a whole province from Asia to America. If they did, and this movement originates with (hem or is permitted by them, the outcome of an immigration ex periment on a gigantic scale will be of interest to the statesmen and philosophers of every land. It frequently happens that chimneys j are now built round, without corners to ' retard the draught. This is done by in setting iu the chimney, as the building progresses, cores consisting of iron pipes cast in sections, or tile piping. Air spaces art' thus left between the core of the chimney and the outer wall, and of course the air iu this space becomes heated to a high temperature. It is quite practical to utilize this air for heating purposes, if this is found desiuable. Ihe air spaces being closed at the top. and openings being made to (he open air at the base of the chimney, tin piping is connected with the spaces for conductinn the heat to different ports of the building. Of course this method is not designed for heating the stories nearest the ground, as the current of air iu ascending has not had sufficient exposure to become heated until it has reached the third or fourth story of the building. Wii’.n a cameo cutter is ready for work he draws on the white surface of the stone with a lead pencil the desigh which he in tends to produce iu the cameo. He then follows the outlines with a diamond, and cuts away the white parts outside. If the stone is small he cements it on the end of a stick; if largo, he holds it in his hand, and proceeds to work upon it with fine drills. He sits at a table like a sew iug machine table, and by a treadle works a small lathe situated at his right. At his left is a frame filled with drills made' of steel wire and of all varieties and shapes. The ends of the drills are covered with diamond dust ground in olive oil. The dust is obtained by crushing uncut dia monds by blows of a hammer in a small steel mortar. The cutter has placed be fore him a picture or a model of the sub ject to be made. Everything then dedends upon the correctness of his eye and his artistic instincts. The work is inexpres sibly slow, but when completed it is mar velously perfect. YOL. XI. CONDENSED TELEGRAMS.

Bloodshed has in several instances result ed from struggles for food, and farmers have been forced to barricade their houses. The situation in the east becomes more threatening every day, and some sort of outbreak is regarded in London as likely to occur at any moment. The apparent affiliation of Russia and Turkey bodes ill for little Greece, as well as for the Bal kan stales, while the other powers of Flu rope. if not hostile to the Greeks, at least desire to restrain their ardor and prevent them pushing on certain disaster. Mb. Gladstone has cabled his acknowl edgement of the receipt of the resolutions adopted by the Quebec legislature on the Kith insl. He also mailed the following letter; “1 am deeply gratified at the res olutions adopted by your honorable body.

The Department of Agricultural reports that tlie official statistical investigation for April makes a reduction of the winter wheat area of ;!.500.000 acres from the bredfh seeded two years ago. and A per cent, reduction from the area seeded a year ago. On the Atlantic Coast (here has been slight reduction, and none on tin! Pacific Coast. The largest decrease is in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri. Com parative areas seeded in principal States are: New York, it"; Pennsyluania. !)8; Ohio, it!); Kentucky, 5)5; Michigan, iti); Indian, !).">; Illinois, 85; Missouri, !)2; Kansas, 84; California, !>!)' Oregon, 103. In comparison with the bredth harvested last year there is an increase. A moder ate degree of protection by snow has been enjoyed, though the covering has been neither heavy nor continuous. Winds have laid bare exposed surfaces and cov ered valleys deeper. Winter-killing in patches is therefore reported to some ex tent, while it is generally found that brown and apparently lifeless plants have roots uninjured.

In Ohio, Indiana and Michigan and also Pennsylvania and New' York it is re spectively reported in four to six coun ties. The Kind of License He Wanted. Buffalo Courier The following story is told of a well know gentleman of this city, who recent ly married a belle from a neighboring Pennsylvania city after his case had been given up as hopeless by all the managing mammas of Buffalo. It seems that the gentleman in question regarded his abne gation of bachelorhood with a sort of rue fid misgiving, which increased as the days of las liberty waned. His last revolt against the shackles of matrimoney occurred when he was sent to procure the marriage license, a few days before the ceremony. He sought the city official who presided over the license de partment and asked gravely: “Is this where licenses are kept ?" "Yes. sir," answered the clerk, politely; "what kind of a license do you want, my friend?” "Well, what kind have you got?" re joined our friend with superhuman grav ity. The clerk had begun to look upon his visitant as a lunitic. but he obligingly rattled off his list; "Give you a license to drive a hack, give you a license to pull teeth or practice medicine, give you a pawnbroker's or huckster's license, give a license to keep gunpowder in the house —” "Stop." said our friend quietly: "that's what I want." Giving Himself Aw ay. Texas Sifting*. Mose Schaumburg was as mad as a moist hen one day last week. .In a voice that quivered with rage he said to his clerk. Ike Silverstone: "Sit down dat desk at and write a letter vat 1 dictatet dot Joke Oppenheimer at. Write 1 have written to you. who has not answered dot ledder? Jake Oppen heimer. Who had I dunned dime and again? Jake Hoppenheimer. Who has paid no attenshnns to dose duns? Jake Oppenheimer. Have you got dot down Mr. Silverstone?" “I have dot down." "Den conclude: ‘Who vas a tarn scoun drel;' Have yon got dat down? - ' ‘"I have dot down.” • Den give dot letter to me so I puts my name to it." The clerk did so, and hence the conclu sion of Mote's letter read; "Who vas a fam scoundrel ? Mose Schaumburg." What Locality Is Exempt From Malaria?

Long pins, with heads ornamented with jewels and pearls, are still some of the principal adornments of the coiffure. There are others of light colored torise shell, forming combs, which are exceed ingly pretty, but rather expensive. They are put on obliquely, with perhaps a bow of velvet at the side, for dinner or even ing coiffure. The long, arm-concealing glove is still as fashionable as ever, always of unglazed kid —light for the evening, dark for the morning. The glazed kid glove, how ever, may be worn in the daytime for walking or visiting. The silk glove or, better still, the unglazed kid glove, with an embroidered open-work cuff, will be adopted with light summer toilets. The newest models of summer mantles are the casavue and the very short man telet-visite. tight-fitting in the back, with the sleeves taken from the back and los ing themselves in the puff: very often there is a tight sleeve comining out from under the wide open one: long lapels in front, the whole more than ever loaded with embroidery beads and passemterie. Greece and Turkey Brooklj and Daily Eagle. There appears to be now no doubt of the determination of the powers to com pel Greece to disarm, it was time that the farce which ha-* for some time been played in the waters of the .Egean Sea and about the Turkish frontier was brought to an end. The interview-* which were published with the Greek Prime Minister. Xlr. Deiyannis. and with hi? pre decessor in office, Mr. Tricoupis. did not afford much encouragement to those who had hoped for a pejyefnl solution of ex isting difficulties. The Premier was a? uncompromising in his attitude as it was possible for a man to be. and he claimed that his country, having been unjustly de frauded of her rights under the Treaty of Berlin, will not be satisfied. The Berlin Congress voted Greece a certain frontier, which they recommended to both coun tries. and the treaty also provided that, in case Turkey and Greece could not come to a satisfactory conclusion on the subject- the great should under take the task. Turkey and Greece were nnable to come to any agreement, al though they discus~ed the question very fully in and 1'79. Then the Greeks invoked the aid of the great powers, and they were represented at Berlin in 1880 by delegates who traced the line of fron tier which Greece now claims. Greece ac cepted this frontier, but Turkey made no reply, and after the matter had again been brought to the attention of the Turkish Government by the powers, Tur key refused it. Then the sis great pow ers suggested a more southerly" frontier to Greece, which the latter excepted, but re served her rights. Now they demand the | frontier originally agreed ' on. on the ground that Greece needs a strategic frontier, which she now does not posess. So the case stood. The difficulties of this question are greatly increased by the fact that the territory claimed by Greece is | inhabited by both Greeks and Turks and that the latter would be haoled over to a Christian and unfriendly power. The territorial lines indicated' have no rela tion to race or religion, but have been drawn in a purely arbitrary manner. THE OFFICES. Continuations.

Sher man glanced up through his iron-gray brows and responded, somewhat wearily: “Yes. if yon ain't just going to say yon were with me."

TO HETI RN TO CHIN \. Cheng Tsao .In Takes Ills Ollicial heave of the President. Washington, April 28. Chang Tsao Ju, the retiring Chinese minister, accompa nied by Secretary Bayard, called at the white house to-day and took official leave of the president. In presenting his letter of recall he said: Mb. Pbesident I desire to express my sincere thanks especially for the unvary ing kindness and courtesy which I and the members of my legation have received from your excellency and the high officers of the United States government residing here. These tokens of good will have given me much pleasure, because of my conviction that they were given to me as the representative of the emperor and the government of China and that they indicate a desire to main tain the ties of friendship existing be tween China and the United States. This feeling is most honestly reciprocated by the government of Chinn, mu) now in taking my final leave permit me, Mr. President, to offer to you my sincere wishes for your health and happiness, and for most abundant prosperity of (he great people over whom you preside.” The President replied: "Mr. Minister, it is always a source of regret when kindly official and personal relations which have grown up between this govern ment and representatives of a friendly sovereign are turned into a new' channel by his retirement. Hut the regret I feel in receiving from your hands the imperial edict, summoning you buck to China and bidding you farewell is made deeper by recollection of your high personal qual ities and unvarying spirit of courtesy and good will, which you have infused into the relations between your mis sion and this government. A vast distance separates China from the United States, together with remarkable diversities in language, laws, customs, and traditions of the two governments and their people have, not unnaturally made it more than usually difficult to cre ate and maintain at all times that clear, mutual good understanding so essential in international intercourse, and no one more than yourself has recognized the fact or sought more faithfully to over come difficulties which have grown out of race jealousies, competitions and rivalries of labor. I recognize and thank you for your earnest endeavors to create that good feeling between your country and my own, which I trust will continue to bear its good fruits to both nationalities. When you return to your own shores accompan ied by the most cordial respect and sym pathy of those who have known yon. dur ing your stay with us. I beg you will as sure your sovereign, and cause your fellow countrymen to know, that I and my con stitutional advisers truly represent the great body of our countrymen, in profess ing the most cordial and friendly senti ments toward China, and desire to con duct our commercial interchanges to mu tually satisfactory and beneficial ends.” THE TELEPHONE IXVESTIGATIOX. Testimony of Forbes, President of the Bell Company. Washington, April 28. —Wm. R. Forbes, president of the Bell telephone company, was examined by the telephone investi gating committee, to-day. The witness did not know that any officer of the gov ernment or member of congress had been connected with the original companies, or had stock at the present time in the National. The Bell Co.’s stock lists showed Mr. Kanney's name as stockholder. That was several years ago, and he was no longer a stockholder. Sec’y Manning, who had stock in the Troy company, was the only government officer he knew of who held local stock. No newspapers own stock in the company. Mr. Ranney inquired if any member of congress represented his company as at torney. The witness replied that Patrick Collins had been retained several years ago to look after certain matters, and had been consulted several times since. The examination was then directed by Chairman Boyle toward the interview the witness had with the president. The wit ness said the understanding was that the government PROPOSED TO B UNO ST IT against the Bell company. He thought it proper to state to the president the facts a* he understood them. He thought the president was proposing to take an un usual course to bring the suit. The Bell lawyers had expressed their opinion, and there was no authority for such a suit. Then it had been proposed to bring suit in a remote part of the country. He went on to say that he had presented to the president a plain statement of the ques tion of jurisdiction: he had pointed out to him that the suit about to dime up in the -upreme court would be decided before the government suit could be heard. He had pointed out to the president that it was the manifest inter tion of the Pan- Electric associates to secure delay, not to get the Bell patents tried, but to leave them untried, and he thought that the government ought not to lend its name to a scheme of that sort. He showed that the pendency of the government suit w,,ald be used to effect the proceedings in other court*—that they would be a*ked to grant a-tay in injunction proceedings during A LONG AND TEDIOUS LITIGATION in the tame of the govermnt. I explain ed the nature of the whole gang, so he might understand it for 1 wanted him to NO. 30. know what the government name was to be used for. exclaimed the witness. He had held that the Bell company should ! uot be subjected to a long and tedious lit igation and it would insist that it could \ aot be seed outside of Massachusetts. iie had asked that the scope of imjuirv ! should be very carefully considered be* fore the government entered into such plans as the one proposed. "I saw an at tempt was being made to influence per sons associated with the administration to use the name of the government against us and the president did uot ap pear to understand the justice or injus tice of the proceedings. I hairmau Did you discuss the conduct of the attorney general, or make any al lusion to it ? Witness Simply to state that an at tempt was beig made to use a govern meat officer near the administration in the interest of one of the parties to the suit, and that a great deal would be gained if they were allowed to have no voice in the suit. To-morrow it is expected that Drof. Bell will be put upon the stand. HANGED HV a Mill!. lorrihle Eateufa Mix,mil Wife Murderer. Sckinokiklo. Mo.. April I>S. At 1:30 o'clock this morning a mob of four hun dred armed men surrounded the county jail and began parley ing with the sheriff for the surrender of George K. Graham, a wife murderer. The sheriff would not comply with their demands and thev soon battered the doors in and secured the pris oner. At two o'clock the mob started out of town on Bonneville street with Graham in their midst. "ben they unlocked Graham's cell, he said. "You can hang me. but b\ God. you can't scare me." They tied his* hands‘be hind hint and marched him through tlie hall with a rope around his neck. He I was ns white as a sheet but never flinched. He recovered his composure mid replied with his old audacity, that when he got out. he would give them "straight talk." He was led out of the jail at the end of Ibe rope, placed in a wagon mid the pro cession moved in a northerly direction. A crowd of spectators, numbering about titty. began following, but were halted and WARNED NOT TO DO so. ami only a few of the most venturesome did so, keeping in the shadow of the fences and trees. About two miles north of the city they halted by a small scrub oak tree. Pickets were thrown out to keep all curious followers at. a distance, ami preparations for hanging were hnr riedly made. Graham was asked if he had anything further to say in regard to the killing of his wife. Exactly what his reply was is not known. A cloth was tied oyer his face, his hands bound behind him, and as the rope was thrown over the limb of the stunted tree, a dozen strong arms dangled the body of Hit* wife mur derer in mid air. He literally strangled to death. A notice was pinned to the body saying; A\ e recognize the fact that our criminal statutes are not equal to all occasions, therefore, we have resolved to remove from our midst the worst criminal who ever infested our country, that we might thereafter, and forever live and be without his presence and vicious influence. AVe heartily welcome all strangers to citizen ship who are worthy of it. To sheriff O'Donnell keep your month shut if you recognize any of us or you will die the death of n dug. TROI BLK AII l aI >. Possibility of a Serious Unt break in the Ohio Senate. Columbus, ()., April 28. The future is fraught with danger of a serious outbreak in the senate when the select committee makes its report on the rotteness; of Cincinnati poli tics. The democrats will insist that the four democratic senators were honest ly elected. The republicans will insist otherwise. Gov. Kennedy will rale that none of the four senators can vote on any question pertaining to their contest. This would give the republicans 17 votes against Hi, and decide the case very quickly But the democratic report will make a sever ance of (ho four cases and report on each senator, so that three of the four from Hamilton county will be able to retain their fourth colleague and so on until all have been declared seated. On account of Goa*. Kennedy’s firmness the democratic senators propose to instruct the sergeant at-arms to oust him from the chair, and he says he will only go out when dead. Both sides threaten to resort to violence. Meeting of the American Historical Asso ciation. Washington, April 28.

Kansas, special says; Cast Salur day the wife of Jacob Freimuth, a l 'onie Strader in Seward county, was cruelly murdered and outraged by Frit* Rnpin, a half-witted German. itupin hud been for some time enjoying the hos pitality of Freimuth. lie was homeless and without friends, and they had taken him in until he could find work. On (he day mentioned, during the tem porary absence of Freimuth, Unpin overpowered his benefactor's wife, and brutally outraged her person. Not content with this he bound the lady hum! and foot and cut her throat from eaar to ear. The brute then secured an old rusty hoe and while the women was yet with ing in the death struggle he disembowel J her with the blunt instrument. Mrs. Freimuth was enceinte, and when dis covered the unborn babe lay a few feet from the body of the mother, cut in two. Freimuth returned Sunday, and when he discovered the mutilated body of his wife he became a raving maniac. A neighbor in that sparsely settled region happened to be passing that way shortly after 12 o'clock and found him but dared not ap proach for fear of his personal safety, lie rode rapidly to the settlement, some eight miles distant, and told the terrible tale. A party was at once organized and they returned to the scene of the outrage and found Freimuth WEI.TEBINO IN HIS OWN UJAtOV. He had killed himself with a shotgun. A grave was dug and the remains of the unfortunate people were buried. The posse then set out to scour the country for the murderer, and found him secreted in a small revene several miles from the scene of his crime, near the Cimarron river. Home specula tion was indulged in as to the proper method of ridding the. world of him, but not much time was consumed in delib erating. A fractions and spirited horse was secured and saddled. One end of a long lariat was then fastened around his neck and the other was attached to the pommel of the saddle. The horse was then started, and amid the shouting of men and the crack of revolv ers and rifles, the frightened animal tore away, and after a run of nearly five miles, the beast fell exhausted, and the lifeless body of the murderer was loosened as soon as the men came up. The lariat had been drawn so tight that his head was almost severed from his body. The features showed he had died a terrible death. His body was left lying on the prairie un covered. Weather Report.
