Th- Westmiiist; r, Bug.. Ja.i'itt- claims
to have authority for the statement that
the Karl of Kimberly. Secretary of State
for Foreign Affairs, will not issue the con
sular report.; received from Armenia, be
cause they confirm the previously receiv

Kimberly has written a letter to the Ar

that none of the lifty-cight Armenians
who were condemned hy the tribunal at
Frziughain in Xovei.il r last, ami whose
t-enteiices were reütlv confirmed by the

Snap Judgment Taken.
With notice to a favored few only the
appointment of Joseph I. (irceiihut. of
Peoria, and E. F. Lawrence, of Chicago,
as receivers of the Distilling and Catlh
f ceding Company, was secured in the Uni
ted States Court on Monday evening.
This order of court was made in a chan
cery suit nominally commenced by dis
satisfied stockholders. Persons who are
familiar with the methods of the present
trust management se in this suit but
another move in the game these ollicials
have been playing. It is curious to note
that out of the total of .'.."ooo-) shares of
the company only l.Too are represented
by the complainants in the suit. Since
the formation of the stockholders" com
mittee in New Yolk President iJreonhut
and his aids have sect that their term of
control would not last beyond Jin annual
meeting in April. Thin would come in
vestigation of methods and management,
wit It what result is b-t known to those
familiar with the inside workings of the
trust. To get into court under the shelter
of a friendly receivership was of course
desirable. This has now been accom
plished in the most adroit manner, but
whether it will stick or not is quite an
other affair.

Chicago enjoyed the distinction Sun
day and Sunday night of being the coldest
place in the United States. At r:.lO a.
m., the mercury recorded nine degrees be
low zero. At If a. in., it was eight below,
and from then until 0 in the evening it
grew gradually warmer, until only one
degree below was shown. Then' the tern
p rature began rgain to fall, and not un
til Monday morning did it get warmer
than (I degrees below" zero. Monday the
cold was intense, not once mounting
above zero. Beports from all over the
country are that a thick covering of snow
protects wheat. So far it is believed fruit
trees are unhurt.
Wreckage, identified as belonging to the
missing (Jraliam & Morton propeller Chi
cora, was discovered in the ice off South
Haven, Mich., Wednesday, proving with
out a question that the famous passenger
boat, .once the pride of Lake Michigan,
l as gone to the bottom. This settles the
awful doubt that has been hanging over
the fate of the vessel since she was first
reported lost Monday afternoon. By the
sinking of the Chicora twenty-six lives
were undoubtedly lost. It would have
been imjiossible for them to have kept a
small boat afloat in the gale, and had they
succeeded in doing this the exposure to
icy air nnd water would have killed them
in less than twenty-four hours. The Chi
cora carried, including Captain Stines, a
crew of twenty-five, nnd there is said to
have been one passenger,. Mr. Pearl, of the
drug firm of Howard & Pearl, St. Joseph.
Chicago went to sleep Friday night
many hours earlier than usual under a
blanket of snow which refused to remain
ttationnry, except in sjiots, for more than
twenty minutes at a time. A shrieking
forty-mile an hour gnle blew "the beau
tiful" from sky to earth, half way back
again, and in more directions than the
average compass bin' ixrints. And when
the kqow did settle down it settled for
keeps settled into drifts as solid aa lr
packed by strong-armed laborers. Trans
portation companies waged the same old
battle for supremacy. Down-town they
managed to keep things moving, but in
the suburbs it was another story. All
schedules and time tables were lost as
eftectually as the rights of way. and ears
only jogged along at irregular intervals
by grace of the snow-plows and through
the efforts of front four to six horses.
Electric lines suffered principally through
the coating of the trolley wires with ice.
Hardly a passenger train reached its de
pot on time and the delay ranged from one
to five hours. Outgoing trains got away,
but all ran slowly. Communication with
the West wa.s badly broken, hut enough
was learned Saturday morning to tell
that the West had experienced the worst
blizzard known for years.
When the Chicora went out of St.
Joseph oil its last trip there was a dug
aboard. Sunday the dog wa.s talevi inio
Benton Harbor alive. Tuesday night the
dog was heard whining at the door of
Solon Culler, who conducts the read
hous at Pottowatamie Park. It is a
snuiT-coloreil skye terrier. It was cov
ered with ice. Cutler took compassion
on the little animal and thawed the ice
off it and rubbed it with va-eline. think
ing its hide had been frozen by I he ice.
Mr. Cutbr connected the vi-it of the
strange dog which had evidently just
come out oi the cold water with the
loss of the Chicora., and took it to the
city. The dog was immediately recog
nized by the stevedores; who work on the
(Italian) docks and by the crew of th;
Petokey as the animal that was aboard
the Chicora when it left. The dog has
been a tramp pas.-enger on the draham &
Morion Transpi etat ion Company's boat
for several months. It has been divid
ing its time between the Chicora and the
Petoskey this winter. Since the log be
came a passenger on these boats it has
never missed, a trip, taking the first boat
to leave. The return of the animal indi
cates the Chicora was within a half-mile
of the cast shore Tuesday evening, the
second, night out. The dog. is believed,
could not swim more than one-quart' r
mile. The place where the dog came
ashore, Pol towatamie Park, is eight
miles north of Benton Harbor, a lakeside
summer resort. Many are Inclined to
think the vessel must have sunk i.ol far
from that point.

The Secretary of the Treasury has au
tbciied the sale of gold bars for export
on payment of a premium of 's of 1 per
cent, to cover the cost of manufacture
and transportation, and Friday morning
1 ,(0itMK was taken on these terms.

An order received at Vallejo, Cal.. from
the Department at, Washington has put
the naval ollieers and men. and all others
to whom the news has been made known,
in pleasurable excitement, and their ac
tivity is as great as if u declaration of
war had come to their knowledge. The
order is for the immediate preparation of
the cruisers Banger and Alert for n sea
voyage. The same order extends to the
cruiser Boston. The work of coaling and
provisioning th? warships is being pushed
as rapidly ns possible, ami the equipments
put into perfect condition and with the
utmost care. It is thought that the des
tination of the vessels is Honolulu. The
reason for the belief is the report thit
(rent Britain is determined to make an
imposing show of naval strength in Ha
waiian waters consequent upon the ar
rest of certain British subjects caught
reibhandiil in the recent revolt against
the republic of Hawaii. The -United
States, it is thought, does not, under the
circumstances, care to have the warship

only representative of the American navy
present when Fngland's licet of gun

The Paris correspondent of the London

dred votes, and now need only eighty
live to command a majority in the Senate
anil twenty-three to command a majority
in the Chamber of Deputies. Such a
majority would mean a collection of revo
lutionary measures, such as the abolition
of the Semite and the Presidency, an in
quisitorial income tax, and a confiscating
separation of church and state which
would be fatal to any country, especially
when taken in connection with a licen
tious press and the so-called democrat
ized, which means insubordinate, army.
