Heavy Fire Losses in Chicago and
It has become n matter of considerable
discussion in ofiicial quarters whether,
under the recent Wolcott resolution pro
viding for the appointment of delegates
to a monetary conference, the President
will name any one for these offices, and
it is said in very well-informed quarters
that such a doubt fills the President's
mind as to the extent of his authority in
the matter, and it will form one of the
most interesting topics to engage the at
tention of the cabinet. Representative! ,'ul
l ersonis the only one of the six delegates
already chosen who yet remains in Wash
ington, and he agrees freely with the
views credited to Mr Cleveland.

Wednesday, from the highest ofiicial
source in Japan, it is stated a Cermnn
physician, an expert of high standing,
was sent at the personal request of the
mikado to examine Li Hung Chang's
wound. After n thorough examination
of his distinguished patient, the physician
reported confidentially to the mikado that
Li Hung Chang must die. The wound is
in rlie face, and the bullet, which the sur
geon had not succeeded in extracting,
is apparently beyond reach. Moreover. Li
is 70 years of age, and although a giant
physically, his years are against him."

The House of Commons at Loudon by

centuries a seat in the House has been
open only to those who had the social
position to insure a successful canvass
and the money to enable them to live in
an expensive part of Lmdon the great it
part of the year. This has been the prac
tical situation until live years ago.
Wealta was the one thing necessary;
ability or popularity went for nothing,

workingman and a poor one at that
to take his seat in the House and the
party which elected him found itself con
fronted with the problem of how his ex

done by public subscription and the need
of it directed public attention the fact
that only wealth was represented in Par
liament. It took long for England to do
more than think about it, but nt last a

R. (i. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of
trade says: "Indications of improve
ment in business grow more distinct. The
most obtrusive of them, the speculative
adance on cotton and in stocks, is the
least reliable; nor can either of these be
said to reflect actual improvement in
business conditions. Railroad earnings
are scarcely better and the speculation is
largely based on expectation of more ef
fective monopoly in coal ami some other
products. Ijondeui was buying largely,
but likely to sell on any rise. Cotton does
not rise because there is more demand
for goods, but that there is more demand
for goods because cotton is dearer. More
valuable indications are that the volume
of domestic trade gains a little, money is
in much better legitimate demand, and
the force of hands at work gradually in

is restricted only by strikes, which are

During the early stages of the row
between Spain and the United States last
January Scott Wike, acting Secretary
of the Treasury, made a ruling under
which customs ollicers were required to
collect the one-tenth of 1 per cent, dif
ftrcntial duty oti sugars imported from
Cuba, holding that that country came
under the classification of a bounty-paying
country. I .at er. though not because
of an amicable and satisfactory adjust
ment of the Cuban tariff schedule, it is
said, but by reason of fresh evidence
hearing on the subject. Secretary Carlisle
issued a supplemental order nullifying
the Wike ruling, he having learned that
Cuban products might be exempted from
the one-tenth cent added duty. The later
order is worth to Cuban sugar raisers

fails to appear, whereat there is great
alarm among the sugar importers who
do not know w hat to make of it.

The det&ils of the explosion at thm
Rocky Mountain Coal and Iron Com
pany's mine No. 5 at Bed Canon, near
Evsinston, Wyo.. Wednesday evening
mark it as one of the most horrible in the
history of coal mining in the West. There
are over sixty widows and lir0 orphaned
children as a result of the disaster. The
names 0f the dead as gathered from tt
company's pay-roll are:

About thirty of the men killed belonged,
to the A. O. F. W.. in which order they
were insured for $2,000 apiece. It is es
timated that sixty men perished in the
disaster. Seven were killed on the out
side. The slopes and entrances to the lower
workings are blockaded by wreckage,
and several days w ill be required for res
cue parties to reach the bodies in tb
mine. The explosion in the mine shook
the whole country around, wrecked the
Prower plant, a fan house, and several
other buildngs. entailing heavy ioss. but
the death roll far overshadows other con
siderations. Immediately after the ex
plosion Supt. Bradbury telephoned for
physienns. Brave men tried to descend
some of the air shafts and escape slopes
without Fucves, and it vras not until
three hours after the explosion that a
volunteer party entered the main en
trance to the slopes, and soon afterward
returned with two lodies. Then reported
oaves stopped further progress down the
slope. Then a party went down to shovel
out the caves, after which the searching
party again ent red. and work in that line
is now going on.
The explosion is described by many as
most terrific, shaking the whole town
and causing women and children to run
into the streits imploring for the afety
of the beloved ones. Though there is ro
fire in the mine, the explosion is supposed
to have come from a blast setting lire to
dust, making a dust explosion. The min
was supposed to be free from gas and
will ventilated. This is the third disas
trous explosion in this vicinity. In 1V-S1
No. 2 mine. Becky Mountain, exploded,
killing thirty-six Chinese and four white
men. In the spring of lssd, Fnion IV
cific Mine No. 4 killed thirty-six men.
