j That was the two fold purjose of the con-
Jeronce ana mat was practically wnat
it did that and nothing more The steer
inir committee was resoluted into respecta
bility and the governor was denounced as
an autocrat and dictator and there the
business ended All else was wind and
Tho conference had a narrow escae from
being at least a partial failure While
there was present a poodly number of those
who favored a third party the plan of
Tracy Sledgeand that trail generally was
to keep down third partyism Such a con
summation would defeat their plan of fight
ing the administration hand in hand
with tho railroads If compelled
to flock by themselves in a third
party they would be absolutely impotent
and unable to conceal
But a portion of the
seeing how it would embarrass the leaders
voted for a third party and it is said
by one who was present carried it
beyond a doubt biit were counted
out or mis countod so as tc show a
small majority of three or four against
third partyism Thus will it be seen how
narrow the escape of the conspirators froin
being precipitated into a most embarrassing-
situation A little more nerve or alert
ness on the part of tho conservative mem
bers present would have done the business
for the Sledges Tracys et al by sepa
rating the sheep from the goats and com
pelling the latter to flock by themselves a
consummation earnestly hoped for by tho
bluest men in tho Alliance
Another thing that displayed the hollow
mockery and delusive huinbuggery of tho
ii which tne
governor and
tne appointive railway commission were
adopted As told by one w ho knew what j
took place in executive session it was in
that Duncan manager of the Dallas com-
mereial exchange would lecture at night
on the condition of the exchange Those
who were not in sympathy with the ruling
faction and who knew already enough
about the exchange and its history absented j
themselves lrom the lecture feeling no
interest in it When the hour arrived it
was moved that the lecture be postponed
and Tracy mounted the stand and told in
blistering language how ho as a member of
the steering committee had been humbled
and persecuted at the capital and how he
had found Jordan a hard road to travel
Never lieforo had any man been mistreated
as he was by the friends of the go- crnor
After playing the part of injured innocence
to perfection and peeling the hides from
the governor and divers other lesser lights
he had no ditllculty in getting adopted the

pretext for the meeting was never more

look at the garrison of Paris when reviewed
tho other day by Gen Saussier he might
be less anxious to court a conflict with
France Tho object of the review was to
enable the general commanding to satisfy
himself of the degree of proiiciency and
soldiery bearing of tho troops under tho
three years service system now in opera
tion The men insuected may bo roughly
set down as having had eighteen months
service the troops making up a total of
about TJOOO men 9000 being infantry
They took up their position in admirable
order and what the French describe as
their ltenuo tnilitaire was perfect They
were formed in a square of parallel lines
infantry first artillery next and cavalry
Gen Saussiers arrival tho whole
force advanced at a quick step to about 200
yards of the general drums and bugles
beating tho charge and then presented
arms The general galloped along the front
of the large square each lino facing about
as he passed it tho bunds playing the

The troops showed excellent discipline
and the service of the artillery especially
attracted comment

Special to the Gazette t
St JosErti Mo May P A storm wave
of only ordinary force will be duo to leave
the Pacific coast about May IS cross the
llocky AUozheny valley from 10th to lSh
and reach the Atlantic coast about the lflth
The low barometer of this storm wave will
pass across tho continent south of the 40th
degree of north latitude and the cool wave
and frosts following it will reach further
south than is usual for the timo of year
The storm will become quite severe on the
Atlantic coast about the lUth and following
it will occur the coldest weather of tho
mouth My last letter gave particulars of
the storm wave due to cross tho continent
from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts from
the 9th to lath
These forecasts give the key to the
weather that will occur at any place on
this continent within the dates mentioned
but to appreciate the accuracy and benefits
of the forecasts the reader must bear in
mind tho naturo of storm waves and how
they offect tho weather within and all
around them The storm wave consists of
two parts a high and a low barometer that
always movo together across the continent
and in this latitude around the earth
Tho low barometer is called the storm cen
ter and is from 500 to 15000 miles in diam
eter and within theso storm centers tho
wind blows in a circle contrary to tho
movements of the hands of a watch when
placed with face up while outside of tho
low barometer the wind blows toward tho
center of its right hand quarter as you face
it About one third tho outer edge of
this low barometer consists of very clear
weather and the bluist of skies and this
must always be received as a part of the
storm wave as it is a suro indication that
tho storm is not far away Another third
inside of this clear belt is occupied by a
cloud belt in which tho rain and
snow occurs and the clouds movo
with the wind around tho center of the low
barometer The center of tho low barom
eter has but little cloud uot much wind
and the weather warm and sultry If the
reader will keep this whirling storm center
hard winter These winter storms will be
gin in tho northern tier of states with great
severity in October and an early winter
very severe all over the continent will fol
low The force of the storms will increase
very gradually and the May storms will
not be so marked as those later on We
will probably havo au occasional tornado
but destructive storms will not attract gen
eral attention till after June S when the
great battlo of the elements will begin in
earnest and every mouth will bring its
noted storms June is not always a month
of great storms but it will be this year
and should my predictions be verified as to
that month the public will give more at
tention to what I have said as to tho
eleven months that follow it October and
November are tne months that usually
bring the tropical hurricanes that are some
times very disastrous ou the Gulf of Mex
ico and occasionally do damage as far north
as Tennessee and Arkansas The great
hurricanes that visited the lower Missis
sippi and the coast of tho Gulf of Mexico
in 1S33 3 will pe repeated next October and
November Wherever you find an old man
who followed fiatboating on the Ohio and
Mississippi rivers in 1S32 3 you will find an
oracle who can reveal much history about
the hurricanes of the lower Mississippi
river at that time Portions of Florida
were greatly damaged by tho hurricanes
sixty years ago
I do not desire to create any u nnecessary
sensation about this very great storm
period but no harm can come by being pre
pared for this very severe winter and the
great storms it will bring Hundreds of
thousands ot people who read my weather
forecasts every week will have great faith
in the predictions made in this letter for
they know that I am very careful and sel
dom mislead them The forecasts aro not
based on any superstition or secret but on
what I know to be and what any person
may know to be real physical causes
The causes of this period of great dis
turbances will be the equinox of Saturn in
October and the equinox of Jupiter next
January Jupiters equinox occurred in
August and Saturns in October 1S32 and
hence the great storms of that and the fol
lowing year The equinoxes of these planets
cause great electric disturanees in our solar
system just as do the equinoxes of our earth
m March and September but on a larger
scale Electricity is the force that causes
all storms and the sun and all the planets
throw an electric force far inlo space over
their equators as do the electro dynamos
and consequently when any planet passes
its oqulnoctial the electric tensionsof the
sun and of that planet aro disturbed and
simultaneously the electric force of every
pianet in the solar system is unbalanced
which affects tne electric currents of the
In my regular weekly letters I will give
details of each storm wave that crosses the
continent from a week to ten days in ad
vance and indicate when the most severe of
these disturbances will occur I have no
secrets as to my meteorological theories

as the cause of every storm wave The

had declared his intention of becoming j

over but two ot the victims witu the
burden of proof in favor of their American
citizenship Ono of these according to tho
report of the district attorney is
Although the United
states government I jury has decided to take immediate action
has no naturalization treaty with Italy the
latter has invariably recognized our nat
uralized citizens as free from amenability
to their native government and that govern
ment as free of any resixinsibility for or
claim to persons of the adopted citizens of
America This phase of the case has been
pretty thoroughly considered both by the
state department and the department of
justice The truth is this question is now
resting in statu ijuo until President Har
rison returns which will bo in the course
of a week or so
There are various rumors as to what the
president will do when he comes home but
one thing is tissurcd and that is the Italion
imbroglio will receive attention at the
earliest cabinot meeting and President I
rison will let his policy be Known within j
the next few daj s The report of the grand I
Jury will then figure in tho corresjoiuleueo j
between tho United States aud Italy Jt is
believed that this finding or investigation
will about
desired by the United States government in
order to make a final answer to Italys re
quest for investigation
Tho main question that presents itself to
this government as has been frequently
stated is -have treaty stipulations with
Italy been broken This depends
1 On tho nationality of the two victims
- On the construction that is placed up
on the treaty
Unless it appears clearly that tho treaty
has been violated the Italian case falls to
the ground

No date has yet been set for the ap
pearance of Bismarck in the reiehstag
Out his hold on the people of Germany is
shown by tho fact that the subject ot his
election and future course is iho absorb
ing topic in Berlin The prince himself
has given it to be understood that he doe-
not mean to act entirely with any polit cai
party He hopes to see a coalition of ths
Conservatives and National Lioerals irre
spective of strict party lines and he means
It is significant that he siieaks of 1S0 as
a civil war in Germany rather than u war
between Prussia and Austria
One of the princes most devoted friends
in Berlin remarked recently that if tho
young kaiser had lett Bismarck at the helm

marcks ultimate act was the absorption in
Germany of the German provinces of Aus
tria cutting looso tho link with Hungary
and allowing that country and Russia to
fight out their diftcrenccs
The prince claims to bo a true Conserva
tive as against the conservatism that clingt
to the principle of separation between th
German states and to be abovo all
a nationalist
Socially ho is opposed to innovations in
timating substantially that changes iu tho
social conditions of the people will coma
rapidly enough without being urged by tha
will aud power of the government
From all that is expressed bv Bismarcks
friends it is b lieved that he will not lj
violent or vindictive in his course towards
the policy and ministry of the new kaiser
but that he will present a steady opposition
to the changes w hieh he disapproves
It is aLso believed that he will concen
trate around him a party adhering not
so much to his personality as to his princi
ples that may compel the kaiser either to
assert the supremacy exercised hj Ins

advised by Bismarck ignored the chamber
and issued royal decrees placing needed
funds at tho disposal of his ministers or to

No doubt is expressed that the kaiser
would choose the former course
Bismarck will then fore bis a critic and
a destructionist in the bouy which he oucu
As for the kaiser it is believed that Bis
marcks election will hurry him on into tha
war of which he is incessantly talking
aud in which he would hope to achuia
