An effort is to be made at the neeting of the State camp, Sons of Veterans, to raise the balance neces jary for the purchase of Beauvoir. Commander Daniel, who was in Jackson last week, stated that there vas now about $8,000 in the hands if different persons for the purchase if Beauvoir for a soldiers’ home, and in order that the exact amount may tie known he has issued an order calling on all persons who have any Beauvoir purchase money to send the 5- me to Gen. George C. Myers of Bully Springs, who has been desig nated as the treasurer of the fund. Persons are also requested to send a duplicate report giving the amount that they have remitted to Mr. My irs to Brigadier General T. M. Hen ry at Jackson. The State camp of Sons of Veterans will meet in Jack son on October 15, and continue in session for three days, and it is the desire of Commander Daniel that the remittances be made to Mr. My ;rs before this time in order that the ?xact amount may be known when :he State camp meets. Mr. Daniel stated that at the meeting of the State camp plans would be set on foot for collecting this balance and aurchasing the property. No effort will be made to collect the balance aefore the busy season. Jackson pro poses to royally entertain the State camp, and to this end the local camp aas appointed the necessary com mittees to provide everything neces sary to make the stay of the sons as pleasant as possible. Mr. Daniel irges all camps in the State to send lelegates to the Jackson meeting. To Go to Cuba.

Oil Mills to Start. A majority of the oil mills in Mis sissippi will open for the season’s, business about the tenth of Septem ber, and the freight traffic officials of the various roads in the State are □ow arranging for hauling the big crop that is promised. The opening this year is somewhat earlier than asual owing to the early maturity of the crop, and it is expected that pric es will range somewhat lower than last year, and the market will be governed by the community of inter est which has been established among the mills. Cotton In the Delta. The compresses of Greenville have received up to last week 130 bales of new cotton. This shows that pick ing is being pushed and that an early crop may be looked for. From the reports now coming in from all sec tions of the county the cotton crop will be at least one-third short over last year in the Delta. The plant 2rs all say that the top crop, as it looks now, will be a failure. Cotton pickers are arriving in Greenville by the scores and being sent out to the different plantations. The rains, if they continue, will no doubt further cut off the crops in the Delta. War on Vagrant*. The mayor and chief of police of Vicksburg have declared war on the ragrants, male and female, mostly negroes. Numerous arrests have been made and heavy fines imposed, and the consequence of this drastic action is that there has been a gen Eral exodus to the cotton fields where the negroes are needed. Insect Attacks Cotton. At Greenville during the last few lays much complaint of damage to the cotton crop of the Delta has been reported.

The yield, from present indications, will be 35 per cent, short, and if the hot weather continues ten days longer the crop will be cut off fully one-half.

Only the Fear that an Order to Fire Would be Given Kept the Crowd From Overwhelming tbe Handful of Troops—Cupt. Helm Severely Brulaed. Tamaqua, Pa., Aug. 30.—In an en counter between troops and strikers at Lansford, Friday morning Capt. W. H. Heim, of Company K. Twelfth regiment, was slightly injured. A half-dozen strikers were bayoneted by the soldiers as a result of the fracas'. Maj. Gearhart, in command of the troops here, states that he will appeal to the military authorities to put the town of Lansford under ma tial law. < Troop* Had an Active Day. From daybreak the troops were active in quelling disturbances and protecting non-union men while on their way to work. As has been the case for the past few days, the troopR were jeered wherever they went. The officers repeatedly admon ished the crowds not to insult or mo lest the soldiers, but their words had but little effect. At five o’clock Com panies K. and E. were placed in two trolley cars. One of the cars was run in front of the car which carried the non-union men to work and the other in the rear. While passing through Coaldale and Lansford the soldiers were hooted, but as no stop was made, the strikers did not make any violent demonstrations. At Sum mit Hill about double the usual num ber of men availed themselves of the protection of the soldiers and went to work. The pickets of the strik ers made efforts to stop them, but the warnings of the soldiers held them at bay. On the Return Trip. When the workmen had been load ed on to the cars, the return trip through the valley commenced. The word that more men than usual were reporting for work speard through the lower part of the valley like wild fire and in a short time the streets were almost blocked with people. .... . . Zt , _.1 T!-_A >> I1H1 Hie tUl 1ICI Ui vcxuci anu Bertsch streets was reached, the cars stopped to allow several non-union men to get off. As the men stepped to the ground the mob made a rush for them. A half-dozen soldiers sprang off the car and with leveled guns forced the strikers back and made a passageway for the non-union men. When the soldiers returned after escorting their charges to a place of safety, the mob commenced to close in around the cars. Striker^ in I'&ly Mood. The strikers were in an ugly mood, and when ordered to disperse, merely yelled louder and pressed closer. As Capt. Heim of ompany K was about to jump from the car he was seized around the legs and thrown to the ground. A half-dozen privates who followed him were roughly handled. One of the men had a portion of his shirt torn off and, according to the enlisted men and the officer^, a num ber of blows were struck. Maj. Gear hart, who was in command of the two companies, then ordered his men to disembark. With clubbeu guns and fixed bayonests the soldiers forced the crowd hack. Many of the strikers stood their ground and would not move until the soldiers jabbed them with their bayonets. Feared the Troop. Wold Fire. Some of the strikers, fearing that the troops would fire, rushed into tne opera house on the corner, and for a time a wild scene of confusion reigned. In about five minutes the crowd had been pushed back to the curb line. In the melee several of the strikers were knocked down while others suffered slight bayonet wounds. Capt. Heim was severely bruised by his fall. A LEVEL-HEADED OFFICER. He Was Not Taking Orders From Coal Mine Operators. Charleston, YV.

I* Prominent In Denmark. Chicago, Aug. 29.—The Daily News ea.vs: According to information un earthed here, William Bartholin, wanted by the police in connection with the murder of his mother and the disappearance of his sweetheart, Miss Minnie Mitchell, is a member of the noble house of Bartholin-Eichel, in Denmark. It has also been discov ered that he has a half-brother, Fred erick Bartholin, now living in Chica go, prosperous and highly respected. The house of Bartholin was found ed in 1680, when Dr. Bartholin-Eichel waa made a baronet for “distin guished services.” Since then the house has stood high in the counsels of the Danish court, its members oc cupying important positions. The line descends without a blot until half a century ago. Casper Bartholin was (and still is, at the age of 82 years) the reigning baronet, presiding over the lands, estates and castle of As trup. His brother was William Peter Bartholin, who became the father of the Will Bartholin for whom the po lice of the country are on the look out. Being a younger son, William Peter Bartholin had no estates, but i_ ai_44-- ~ o made warden of the royal castle at Kibe, where he was made a knight of the Dannebroge and given a castle of his own. He married the Countess Gottholdine Grevencopp-Castenskjell of Great Frederickslund castle. Two sons were born—Georgen, now editor of the National Tidende, the largest newspaper in Copenhagen, and Fred erick, who now lives in Chicago. A German servant girl was taken into the family, and after a few years of married life Bartholin eloped to America with the servant, taking with him, it is alleged, a large amount of public money which had been intrust ed to his care. The deserted wife, after a few years, secured a divorce, and married Bishop Hans Tornoe, of Copenhagen, one of the dignitaries of the Lutheran church. Meanwhile all did not go well with the younger son. He served through out the civil war, leaving the German serving maid to her own devices. When the war w>as over he returned to Chicago and married her, and in 1872, Will Bartholin, the present fugitive, was born. After various vicissitudes, the father died at the soldiers’ home at Milwaukee, Wis. The next public attention given to this wayward limb of the noble house was when the police began the search for Minnie Mitchell, who was sup posedly murdered, and in their search discovered the mutilated remains of Mrs. Bartholin in the basement of her house. Frederick Bartholin, until recently, did not know that his father was in this country,although he was familiar with the story of his father's down fall. ♦_ ARSENIC IN COFFEE POT.

SOURCE OFv COLOMBIA'S GRIEVANCE. Arms and Ammmiltlon Fop the Co lombian Hebei* Said to Have Been Shipped From Jdearaitoan Porta—Colombia Poahln* Prep aration* for Active Work. Washington, Aug. 30.—Colombia will formally demand of Nicaragua an explanation in regard to the latter country’s alleged participation in the revolution against the Colombian government, and back up her demand with the most formidable land and naval force she can muster, as soon as the present rebel activity on the isthmus has been crushed. Information to this effect was re ceived from an authoritative source in Washington Friday. The above intelligence causes con siderable surprise in diplomatic cir cles, for but a few weeks ago it wai announced that Mr. Concha, the Co lumbia minister, and Mr. Corea, the Nicaraguan minister, had established an entente cordiale between their re spective governments; that bygones were to be regarded as bygones, and that the time wTas ripe for a satis factory understanding by the two governments. It is now learned that the initial move toward the establish ment of an amicable understanding between Nicaragua and Colombia was marie bv Mr. Corea, who also pro posed to Mr. Concha an adjustment of the difficulties which have so long been pending over Colombia’s claim to the ownership of a strip of what is claimed by Nicaragua to be part of her coast line. Minister Concha declined to accede to the latter prop osition, declaring that a claim which Colombia had brought forward for so many years could not be adjusted, or in fact brought, to any material de gree toward adjustment by the meth ods suggested by the Nicaraguan minister. However, Mr. Concha was entirely willing to join Mr. Corea in the establishment of an entente cor diale. Shortly after Minister Corea’s ar- J rival in Nicaragua.wherehewent some I weeks ago on a leave of absence, the Colombian officials here, it is stated, received information to the effect J that arms and ammunition for the jM Colombian rebels on the isthmus were ^ being shipped from Corinto. The Co lombia legation here hod been receiv ing reports of this character contin ually, and in view of the arrangement effected with the Nicaraguan minis ter before he left Washington. Senor Concha lost no time in calling Mr. Co rea’s attention to the matter. The latter official replied that President Zelaya would immediately institute an investigation to ascertain if the reports were well founded. A short time ago, however, more reports were I received in Washington to the effect that Nicaragua still continued her material support of the revolutionists on the isthmus, and now Colombia, it it stated, finds her patience exhausted, and has decided to present a formal demand for an explanation. Mean while, it is understood the entente cordiale has only a nominal existence. It is not anticipated that the affair will lead to an actual war with Nica ragua, but, nevertheless, Colombia is j making preparations to back up her representations with a reinforced, armed war vessel at Seattle, as well as several prospective purchases of war ships for the Colombian navj% have Nicaragua rather than the pres ent troubles on the isthmus, in view.
