An Inhuman Deed.
eC Representative Cummings, of Nev
York, has introduced a resolution it
congress requesting the secretary o
State to give the house any informa
tion he may have concerning the inci
Sdent of the stripping of three ladJ
passengers on board the United State,
'n wmail steamer Olivette in the harbor o
tar avana by Spanish soldiers. Th(
he resolution recites that the alleged oc
currence was debecribed in a New YorE
t's paper. The resolution was referrer
ity to the committee on foreign affairs,
and a report is expected this week
Mr. Cummings said as to the resoluý
tion: "If an English woman on ar
nd English vessel had been stripped b3
s Spanish oflicials, as it has been alleged
ye that an American woman was stripped,
within forty-eight hours Morro Castlh
would come down or some apology
e would be made for it. I doubt even
if Japan would have stood it. Fur.
, thermore, if the American government
stands it, in my opinion, it indicatee
a total loss of manhood and the keen
to eat sympathy with savage inhumanity."
Myers to Hang for Arson.
le For the first time in a number o:
11, years a man is to die in South Caro,
p, lina for the crime of arson. The tria
1e of Frank Myers and his two sons, Bet
e and Frank, for burning the mill prop.
, erty of Snowden & Co., in Georgetown,
1e valued at $4,000, has just been com.
pleted. The evidence against Ben war
Sstrong, but that against the old mas
it and his young sun was purely circum
stantial. They would probably have
i gone free had not Ben, when first ar
. rested, declared they were implicated
with him. The court house was crowd
t© ed all during the trial. When old IMy.
er ire, white-htaded and feeble, took the
p stand and made his earnest statement,
. with tears, trembling voice and crude
ýe eloquence, the sympathy of whites and
o blacks was aroused, but he could not
r_ stand the solicitor's examination, so
il Ben was convicted of arson and the
father and younger son as accessories.
e The former was sentenced to death and
the others to ten years at hard labor
t each. This was Judge Klugh's first
I death sentence, and he broke down in
passing it.
Dr. Iuestrow Will Hang.
Gov. Stephens has just decided
that he will not interfere in the case of
SDr. Arthur Duestrow, the millionaire
of St. Louis, sentenced to be hanged
at Union, Mo. for the murder of his
a wife and child. Dr. Duestrow killed
e his wife and child, in cold blood on
1 Feb. 13, 1894, and has been tried
several times for the crime and twice
investigations as to his sanity have
r been made. Every tcchnicality known
r to law has been taken advantage of to
I save his life. Sunday a commission of
I insanity experts were sent to Jefferson
SCity to examine D)uestrow and report
f ed to the governor MIonday. As a re
sult of their decision Gov. Stephens
has decided to let the law take its
.course and Duestrow will be hanged
.Tu stday, at Union, Mo., w;hcre he was
convicted; that is, unless, as a last re
sort, the sheriff's jiry which Dues
trow's attorneys have decided to sum
mon, declare him insane.
Claims hey Stole lls Ideas.
The description of the flying ma
chine that Leonard E. Clawson and
Adam Beck, of San Francisco, claim
to have invented and successfully test
ed, has brought forth the statement
from Charles Andres·, of Chicago, that
they have stolen his ideas. Andress
claims that two years ago, while resid
ing in New Orleans, he took a sketch
of his ma::hine to a model-making firm
on Poydras street, who moved away
without delivering hij model, and An
dress never got track of them. In his
model the lifting power is supplied by
four wings working at right angles
from a ball-bearing axle. These wings
are so constructed that two go up while
two are going down. Andres: says e ahop
plied for a pate:t emo time ago
through Jo0 Wolfson, a New Orleans
Tax on Fore'sners.
The French chamber of deputies
will soon deal with a bill for the taxa
lion of foreigners, which the the Vi
comte de Montford and several of his
friends have just submitted. It pro
vides that all male foreigners pay the
military tax upon Frenchmen who are
exel)mt,,d from service, and foreigners
exemlptfd a profession or calling will,
if the bill becomes a law, pay a supple
mentary tax. In the case of workmen
this tax will not amount to less than
3 per cent. of their earnings, while the
tax on professionals is calculated on
the license duty which they pay. The
product of these taxes will be devoted
to the assistance of the needy wives
and families of soldiers.

Disruption of the Steel Rail Pool M:st is
portant Event,
Western Receipts or Wheat are In
creasing-The Price of Cotton I)e
clined Only an Eighth for Spot-Cotý
ton Market Depressed.
It. G. Dun & Co's. weekly review oc
trade says: No other event of the
week approaches in importance the dis
ruption of the steel rail pool. In twt
days after it a greater tonnage of rail:
was probably purcha-edl than the en.
tire production last year, reported a!
800,000 tons, ani ins:tead of at $28 it

West are seeking orders. The Carne

ant increase in the cost of track laying
or renowals to railroads. Even more
important is the result that recon
struction of the billet pool will be im
possible as long as the contest over
rails continues and the manufacturer
of structural forms, bars, rods, nails,
wire, tin plates and many other prod
ucts has a chance to secure cheap ma
terial in the near future. Also im
portant is the struggle between the
two great companies producing Mesabt
iron ore, one allied with the Illinoie
steel and the other with the Carnegie
Company, which is expected to bring
about lower prices for ore, and push
many mines to their utmost capacity.
But in the war of rival interests wages
are already reduced by some large
concerns. Another event of influence
is the purchase of 750,000 pieces of
print cloth by M. C. 1D. Borden, at
2.56 cents which has already caused an
advance to 2.69 cents with a stronger
tone for prints and other cotton goods.
The moral effect of such a purchase
manifesting confidence in the future is
apt to be great. As the contract to
shut down part time mavy mills pro
ducing print cloths is going into effect,
the productive capacity and wages of
operatives will be for a time reduced,
but if a demand of traders to replen
ish stocks is started the effect may be
altogether beneficial. The woolen in
dustry also meets an increased demand
" for low and medium goods, and a doz
en more mills have started against
three stopping for various reasons.
Clay mixtures are reduced to 75
cents with other prices maintained.
Except in steel rails changes in iron
products have been slight advances in
gray forge wire and cut nails. Com
petition reduces American cut nails to
$3.20 against $3.90 for foreign; tin and
copuer are steady, but lead stronger at
3.2731. Speculation in products has
hardly been more active than of late,
and prices generally tend downward.
Wheat rose a cent, 6n Tuesday, but
has since declined 2.37 cents. Western
receipts are increasing but for two
weeks have been only 3,191,395 bush
els against 5,823,213 last year; while
Atlanta exports (tlonur included) have
been for the week about a quarter
larger than last year, and for two
weeks 3,855,096, against 3,638,125 last
year. About every week some new
speculative guess by somebody it.,
presses many traders more than the
current records of actual movement.
The cotton market has been depress
ed in like manner by Mr. Alliston's es
timate that the American crop would
prove 8,650,000 bales, but the quan
tity coming into sight has also sur
passed previous guceses and indicates a
larger crop than other speculators
have estimated. The curtailment of
consumption in the mills is not a
guess, although some over-estimate it,
since probably not more than a fifth of
the spindles will be stopped, a third of
each week for a quarter of the year.
T.[he price declined only an eighth for
spot, but over a quarter for the May
Failures for the past week have been
267 in the United States against 821

A strange story comes from Mazat

to Fifty Thousand Doves Killed.
A party from Macon, Ga., in spwcial
lid cars, went to Leesburg, Saturday to
tid shoot c!Ives on the Lanmr plantation.
ts The members kill ed from 8,oO) to 5,000

that place for the past two seasons has
s been so great, the party was disap
Spointed by not finding many. At the
, present rate of slaughter there will be
ir- o doves left soon. Little less than
