Oh* Iq [ Canton* Thence Spread to IJoog Ko?g, Whore It Raged With n Paoto Broodlng Virulence. ? Waphington, July 23.?Surgeon Gen cral Wyman, of the Marine Hospital scrvico, has received a report regarding; the "plague" in China from Dr. Stuart Eldridge, a member of the, imperial board of health of Tokio and health j officer of the port of Yokohama. Tho plaguo, he says, has been known to bo present in the Yunnan district of South? ern China for. at least fifteen years j past, at times epidemic in malignant form. At the end of February last tho ! disease broke out in Canton, and al? most simultaneously was epidemic in Pakhoi, a port at the head of the Gulf of Tong King. During March and April the epidemic in Canton steadily increased until in the latter month it had assumed gigantic proportions. The authorities of I long Kong, the center of trade in the far east, Iralf a day's journey from Canton, and, in consequence, in very frequent communication therewith, utterly ignored the existence of danger even in their city, until in the first ten days of May the plague broke out violently and extensively in Hong Kong. Since its appearance in Hong Kong, the epidemic which is unquestionably the genuine bubonic plague of the most malignant type, has steadily increased, until, by the latest reliable advices, the mortality is certainly over ono hundred per diem, and this despite the fact that at least one hundred thou? sand Chinese and many Europeans have evacuated the place?the former in many cases leaving on feeling tho first symptoms of the disease, in tho hope of dying in their native villages. At least a dozen Europeans have been attacked, most of them succumbing. From Canton and Hong Kong tho disease is spreading throughout the neighboring country, and will, prob? ably, in a shorl time appear in tho coast towns of China to the northward of I long Kong, for, partly from the carelessness in such matters but too prevalent among the English in the cast, no effective quarantine has been or is likely to be established at these points. Several eases have already occurred on the steamers trading from Hong Kong to the Chinese ports, but, so far, and this is encouraging, without seri? ous consequences, possibly on account of prompt action on the part of tho ships' surgeons, A quarantine system has been put into operation in Japan, largely under Dr. Eldridge's advice and pcrsonal'su porvision, imposing on all ships from the infected district a minimum detcn t ion of nine days when all is well on board, and the same in case of infec? tion, dating from last death. As all the steamship lines between Hong Kong and Japan are themselves tak? ing every precaution, so far but one infected vessel has reached a Japanese port. This was the Pacific Mail Steam? ship Co-hs Peru, on board of which, while at sea between Hong Kong and Nagasaki, one of the Chinese firemen died of ?nmistaknble and malignant Jdugue, on June 4, after 1ml twenty bur hours1 illness. The surgeon of the ship acted in an exceptionally prompt and intelligent manner, and though the ship was quarantined at Nagasaki for the term of nine days after the death, no more cases occurred on boa i*d. "If I may presume to advise," says Dr. Eld ridge, ''1 would say that the most stringent measures may need to be taken to protect the United States, particularly as regards certain classes of goods from China likely to convey infection, rags, old cotton, etc., and also such manufactured articles as are made in the little native workshops with perhaps a case of plague dying in tho same room, such things as straw mat? ting, embroideries and every sort of textile fabric. So long as the disease is kept out of Japan, so long will this country be the best bulwark for tho United States against the importation of the disease. Should* it break out in an}- part of Japan, I shall see that you have every information by cable." Forest Fires iu Wisconsin. West Superior, Wis., July 23.?Tho Superior fire department was called to South Range Sunday afternoon to pro? tect that village from destruction by forest fire. Several buildings have been burned there. Fires are racing all around this city for thirty miles, and dozens of settlers have been burned (Mit. Several sawmills are in ashes and thousands of feet of standing pine. Healed For Wall Street, Wilmington, Del., July 23.?Carl Itrowne and seventy members of tho Coxey army arrived here and went into camp, having marched from lUadens?. burg. Mr. Browne says the army has been to Washington to see the servants of the bankers and brokers, and that it is now going to New York to see tho bosses themselves. Nihilist Arrested at St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg, July 23.? The polico Sunday arrested twenty nihilists in this city. No reason is known.for tho arrests, but it is conjectured that they were due to the discovery of a plot against the life of the czar. Railway Shops Closed. Albuquerque, N. M.; July 23.?Tho big shops of the Atlantic and Pacific at this point were closed fortan indefinite time Saturday. About four hundred men are thrown out of work. The or? der closing the shops states that the j financial depression makes the step , necessary as a direct result of the A, R. U. strike. TIio Roent Earthquakes.

The occasion was the presentation of the message from the house, caking for a further conference on the tariff bill. Mr. Gray j (dem., Del.) moved to insist upon the senuto amendments to the tariff bill and to agree to a further conference. A motion was made by , Mr. Vilas (dem.. Wis.) to recede from the dif- j ferential duty of one-eighth of a cent on sugar; j and this motion provoked a long discussion j participated in by Senators Vllas, Sherman i and Palmer in support of the motion, and by i the two Louisiana senators?Caffrcy and } Blanchord?against It.

It was adopted by a vote of 15*7 to 49. a two-thirds majority being necessary, as it is an amend- j raeut to the constitution.

Chicago, July 21?The determina? tion of the Pullman Co. to reopen its works and operate them with a forco ' of non-union employes, if the old em- ? ployes refuse to return, has aroused the strikers to a white-hoat temper, i and both militia and police are looking ; for trouble before Monday night. Fri- j day evening- there was a conference be? tween Col. Turner and Police Lieuten? ant Passett, and it was decided to keep a close watch on the Purnside and Roseland district throughout tho night. There were no less than four incipi? ent riots in Pullman and its surround- J ings during the day. The mo*t threat? ening occurrence was at :? o'clock, when a big crowd surrounde I the lire station, where a senatorial primary election was in progress. The militia was compelled to charge bayonets, and the mob retreated. One of the most demonstrative of the crowd, a striker named Edward Herzog, was arrested and taken to Dnrnside.

In Order to Save tho Measure an Adjourn? ment Until Monday Was Foreed. Washington, July 21.?For five ex ciring hours the tariff bill face?!defeat in the senate Friday. In order to save j the measure from certain destruction i the managers forced an adjournment [until Monday. This respite of two j days will be used in efforts to heal the I dissensions in their ranks. It is impos? sible to say in consequence of this ad? journment that the bill will be beaten next week. It is certain, however, that never in its checkered history was it in such peril as Friday. By their hasty adjournment the managers of the measure admitted the i imminent peril of the bill. All day long they were prepared to stave off the vote upon any of the pending mo? tions in the senate, because they knew that if voting were once to begin Fri? day a straight path to the destruction of the measure would be opened. This can be seen from the nature of the motions now pending. First of theso is that of Senator Hill to instruct the senate conferees to recede from the senate duty on coal and iron ore. Is'ost is the motion of Senator Vilas to recede from so much of the sugar schedule as provides for a duty of one eighth of one cent per pound on re? fined sugar in addition to fortv per cent, ad valorem. Back of this demo? cratic leaders were aware that Senator Quay was prepared, if the opportunity offered, to offer his motion instructing the conferees to recede from the entire sugar schedule The greatest danger was tho motion of Mr. Vilas. They well knew that if brought to a voto it would certainly be carried. In the meantime democratic members of the house were on the senate whispering thoir delight at the turn things had taken in the Vilas blow at the sugar trust and informing the senators that if the bill came to the house in that form the house would yield to all the rest of the senate amendments. The democratic senators were also confronted by the knowledge that if the Vilas amendment was curried the bill would lose the votes of the Louisi? ana senators, Messrs. Caffery and Hlanchard, while Senator Smith, of New Jersey, announced in stentorian tones that he would go no further: that the house must accept the senate bill as it stood or leave it. It is evident, also, that the bill is confronted with another serious dan? ger. If it be not amended as the presi? dent indicates, it is difficult to see how he can give it his approval should it ever reach the white bouse. This was made very clear by Mr. Hill, who pointed out that tho president had practically said in his message to Mr. Wilson that the pending bill meant "party perfidy and party dishonor." A PECULIAR DEATH. A Boy Fashions u H?llet Proof (?) Shield and Has Ills Brother Fire. Wichita. Kan., July 21.?GarCeld Wilkinson, a 14-year-old boy living thirteen miles south of this city, was shot and instantly killed by his brother Willie, a boy of eleven years. The cir? cumstances are somewhat peculiar. Gar field had been reading about the bullet-proof shield invented, and recently tested in Germany. lie con? cluded to make one like them, and hav? ing completed it he put it on and asked his brother to firo a shot at him. The little brother performed the request. The bullet went through the shield ! and pierced the boy's heart. The shield j was made out of a coffee sack and tilled ! with scraps of old barbed wire and I wool. The accident drove the mother of the boys insane. A California Butcher's Sudden Wealth. Sax Francisco, July 21.?Anthony Ivearns, a wealthy cattle dealer who died recently in Enniscarthy, Ireland, left his entire estate, valued at ?80,000, to his nephew, .lames Kcarns, who came to America twenty-five years ago, and who was to be identified by the i tattoo marks on his arm. Agents of ? tbe executors believe that they have i found the long-missing heir in the per- j son of James Kearus, a local butcher, ! who is taking steps to claim his inher? itance. _ Wants Shippers to Aid Ilitn. St. Louis, July 31.?President Sean Ian of the local A. R. U. has evolved a scheme by which he thinks he will be able to secure the rc-instatement of all the strikers in their old positions. He will depend upon the shippers to help him out. He believes that If they peti- . tion the local railway managers to take back the old men the}- will do so. The strikers, however, have little faith in the scheme._ Killed In a Heud-Fnd Collision. Macon, Ga., July 21.?A head-end collision between a passenger train and a freight train occurred Friday morning at Dames Ferry, on the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia road. Fireman Rogers, of the freight, was instantly killed, and Fireman Thorn, of the passenger, was so badly inj med that he died at 1:30 p. m. No one else j was injured. Biff Blaze at Birmingham.

Chicago, July 21.?The civic federa? tion of Chicago has started a move? ment, which, its members hope, will tend toward a solution of the labor question, and will prevent strikes and other troubles uf the kind. This plan is to hold a congress of, representatives of employers and em- j ploy es, similar to the parliament of religions held in this city last year. 1 The representatives of these botlies will confer and give the result of their experiences and adopt some measures of conciliation which will avert strikes in the futi:re. A date for tho proposed conference has not yet been set. 1" H A -, DaiL.vu trotte 2)e&i. Dknviii:, Col..

Siebs* Idea. t _ Cu'CAOO. July 23.? The Herald prints a long- article giving- in detail the plans \ of the American Railway union to ab? sorb the older railway brotherhoods, and the recently organized American Labor union, to take every class of labor except railway emploj'es, the two organizations to affiliate and be prepared by May 1, 1S95; to demand a readjustment of wages to the basis ex? isting prior to the panic and hard times, and in the event of refusal to order a general walkout. The articles continues: "Some broad statements in this con? nection were made bv ofueials of the American Railway union headquarters, as follows: 'That on or about January 15, 1S(.).">. there would be held in Chicago a convention composed of representa? tive men of the American Hail way union, the United Mine Workers of North America, the Knights of Labor and American Labor union: the Ameri? can Federation of Labor and the old railway brotherhoods would not be rep? resented in this convention: that at this convention all branches of labor repre? sented would be called on to present a succinct report as to the then existing wage scales, and how much they have been cut in 1802, 1st):] and 16U4; that these wage scales should then be formu? lated, and be presented to the corpora? tions and railroads, with the demand that they be readjusted to the basis existing prior to the panic and hard times, and that if this demand was not granted a general walkout should fol? low May 1. 1805.' "As one officer of tho A. R. U. put it: 'The present strike will never be de? clared off by Mr. Debs, and we expect, if the Chicago switchmen remain firm, that the Chicago roads will eventually compromise on a basis satisfactory to all. The present strike not being de? clared off, a convention of the charac? ter described will be entirety in place, and will bring together at that time the strongest labor organization in the world. There will be a full analysis of wage scales before any demand is made on capital for a change, and tho east will be as strongly represented in the new labor organiza? tions then as the west is now. The movement of May 1, 1895, then, will be only a rc-inforcement of the strike be? gun on June 2(5, ls'.?4.' "In this plan much is expected of the new American labor union, whose membership Is now claimed to be 1,000, and has opened its ranks to every class of labor except railroad employes. "Thofxi behind the plan for the Jan? uary convention expect the acquittal of Debs by the courts, and that follow? ing this, he will make a tour of the east, delivering speeches and organiz? ing branches of his order, while cam? paigners from the American Labor union will follow him to make inroads into the ranks of the Gompevs follow? ers. They argue that the time was never better for the establishment of a labor unkm to control all the labor fac? tions outside of railroad work. *Tho A. R. U. officials point to the ruin of tho Mutual Aid association of the switchmen, and the fact that tho American Railway union has already absorbed half of its membership, and will have the rest as soon as it provides an insurance department for death and a beneficiary for accidents. "As to the Brotherhood of Locomo? tive Engineers, the union officials re? gard that tis practically officially dead. They cite the dissolution of lodges of this order at Champaign, Danville, Terre Haute and in all parts of the country but the east, as evidence that the engineers either wish to be inde? pendent of or are ripe for a new organ? ization. Given, therefore, the switch? men and engineers, with wdiat they have ahead}', the A. R. U. officials count on a convention in January of two thousand delegates, representing every brauch of labor from a new.#>oy to a railroad engineer, and with Mr. Debs presiding; "The statement was made broadly at A. R. U. headquarters that President Sovereign would not interpose a single objection to the total absorption of the Knights of Labor by the American Labor union, and that since the fiasco in his attempt to call them out on a strike when, except in scattered locali? ties, there were few to call out. he has recognized the coming new powers, and only desires not to be left entiicly out. On the other hand. General ; ec retary John \V. Hayes is reported to bo decidedly averse to sacrificing the iden? tity of the knights, preferring to pre? serve the fiction of an organization to a complete surrender. Those who spoke of the coming convention ere m? close to Debs that it was ih;i i re I Liie r desires were but a reflection of tin next move he intends to make.*' ' _ Faults in Conversation. Dean Swift once said: ' There are two faults in conversation which appear very different, yet arise from the same root and are equally blamable; I mean an impatience to interrupt others, and the uneasiness of being interrupted our? selves. The two chief ends of conver? sation are to entertain and improve those we are among or to receive those benefits ourselves; which whoever will consider can not possibly run into cither of those two errors, because when any rrftn spcaketh in company it is to be supposed l>c doth it tor his hearers' sake and not his own: so that common discretion will tench us not to fcrce their attention, if they are not wiUing to lend it: nor, on the other side, to interrupt him who is in posses? sion, because that is in the grossest manner to give the preference to our own good sense."?Toledo Blade.
