fa I, Pi/ !&*> fa $& (New Ulm Review. S '\t NKWULM, MINNESOTA. The trial of the Chicago anarchistg yfa likely to be spun out for a week or two yet, and then the decision of the .V jury, is by no means certain in any of v the cases, though the preponderance |4" of testimony ia on the side of the fV prosecution. The new elevated road which is now being tried in Cambridge, Mass., and which is eventually to be built in Bos ton, is a departure from all present system of railroading. It has but a single rail and this allows of much sharper curves and heavier grades* Eight hundred feet of the road has been built and is working satisfacto rily. Of the nearly $370,000,000 of frac tional currency issued in past years (ceasing in 1876) there is still out standing $15,340,114, so that proba bly nearly all this amount ha3 been destroyed or lost by the people. As suming that the national bank cur rency has suffered one-tenth as much loss, it may be estimated that of the $1,237,034,835 issued $8,000,000 has disappeared and will be a clear profit to the national treasury. Gov. Curtin's committee on strikes, which traveled a good deal and took f,volumes of testimony did not leport to Congress. The committee claims Hhat it was lacking the evidence of the chief officer of the Southwestern rail road system on which the great strike occurred, and that no report could be made without that. Authority has been given the committee to continue its work during the recess, but it is safe to assume that nothing will be done, unless there should be more labor disturbances of a serious char acter. The new vessels provided for in the new naval construction bill are ot 6,000 tons and a speed of sixteen knots, a cruiser of 3,000 tons, and a torpedo boat, while the monitors now in course of construction will be com pleted The total amount appropriat ed is $3,500,000, of which $1,000,000 is for armament and the rest for the construction of the new vessels. Those who believe that a first-class nation should have something more than a fiith-class navy will be rejoiced that a start in the right direction has been made. The City of Faris has become lateh the possessor of a remarkable collec tion of documents, which will have great interest in years to come for his torical investigators. This was the series of death warrants, extending from April 7, 1808, to Dec. 8, 1832, belonging to Samson, the notorious headsman of the Revolution. The col lection was bound up in nineteen vol umes, and Samson has prefixed to each volume a summary of the con tents. During twenty-five years he executed 7,143 capital sentences, be ing an average of 217 executions in each yearrather a busy life. The whole of southern California, which is in any manner useful for ag ricultural purposes, consists of valleys of fertile lands between the mountains where irrigation can be successfully carried on. The San Gabriel valley, the pride of southern California, and perhaps the most beautiful valley on the continent, commences at Los Angeles and extends over thirty miles between the spurs of the Sierra Madre Mountains and the Santa Anna val ley, which also runs up near Los An geles, and extends for about thirty five miles below. The lands of these valleys are worth $100 per acre for purely agricultural purposes, because the lands can be successfully irrigated by water brought down from the sur rounding mountains. An elaborate table from the bureau of agriculture in Washington showing the average wages for' agricultural la bor in the several states, with and without board. "Running down the columns says the St. Louis Globe Democrat, "the reader will observe that wages drop to one half in the south what they are in the east, porth and west. Take the column of day wages in ordinary seasons without board for example. The range is from $1 to $1.57 for the north, in not a single state falling below $1. While for the old slave states the range is from 98 ets. in Texas to 60 cts. in South Carolina, in not a single state rising to $1. These figures are submit ted for information simply. It is not the intention to argue that the black hand at the end of the hoe handle in the Carolina cotton-field is entitled to Che compensation received bv the white man who rides the cultivator through the corn rows in Illinois. \T,he comparison is presented naked cd pommenfcor argument. |$jj f&ip1 General News Condensed. How the Kate Gov. Tilden Disposed of His Property. A dispatch from New York says: The Trill of S. J. Tilden was read at Greystone in the presence of all the relatives except those in the west. The document is a long one, containing about ten thousa nd words. Hon. John Bigelow, Andrew Green and George W. Smith are named as executors and trustees. All of Mr. Tilden's kindred are generously provided for in the will. The whole estate is placed in the hands of the executors as trustees. Each heir is to receive an equal share in the line of his or her consanguinity. That is, nephews and nieces receive equal amounts, and their children certain amounts, but they are to receive only the income derived from an equal separate specific sum, the principal at their death to be dis posed of in a manner which Mr. Bigelow could not state. None of his relatives, except Mrs. Mary B. Hilton, his sister, are given any specific bequest forever. her he bequeaths the residence No. 38 West Thirty-eighth street, and the sum of $100,- 000 to live upon. All of his real estate except this place is placed in his executors' hands to be disposed of as they see fit. Greystone and the Gramercy Park prop erty fall under the same rule. The execu tors are first charged with the duty of setting apart for his relatives the sums named for them, from which the several incomes are to be derived. This done, it becomes the duty of the executors and the trustees to carry out his wishes regarding certain public bene ficiaries. They are charged with the. duty, first, of establishing a free library in the village of New Lebanon, also in Yonkers, and if in the discretion of the trus tees they chooRe to establish a free library in this city they may do so, and if not they are at liberty to use the fund that a free library would cost in the promotion of any charitable or educational cause. A great deal is left to the discretion of the trustees. In general terms the relatives are handsomely taken care of. The estate is not as large as estimated by some peo ple. The value his been placed at $10,- 000,000, but Mr. Bigelow says this is double its actual value. As regards a public library for this city, that mattsr is left to the discretion of the trustees, both as location, size, equipment and cost. Hence the city will have a library if the trustees think that the funds in their hands cannot be used for the public to better advantage. Iowa State Prisoners Shot. A dispatch from Anamosa, Iowa, of the 10th says Pour convicts made an at tempt to escape from the state penitenti ary here this aiternoon at 5 o'clock. Pad dy Ryan, in for six years, was shot through the left shoulder. The ball glanced down to the heart, Ryan dying instantly. Mitchell, the man who murdered Thum on the St. Cloud bridge at Cedar Rapids about a year ago and who was sentenced for life, was shot in the leg, which has to be amputated, and it is thought he will die. Lankens, sent from Maquoketa, Iowa, for ten years for murder, was not dangerously injured. Harry Blunt, from Jones couuty, in for eighteen years for murder, was the only one that escaped injury. About one week ago the west gate as knocked down by a railroad car, and had been boarded up, and it was through this that they made the break. Only one man got through. The guards did good work, and the warden and citizens expressed themselves as greatly pleased at their good marskmanship. A report is soon to be issued from the state board of chaiities in regard to the uniform classification of expenses oE state institutions. The various branches of the work are fully set forth and the needs for such classification shown.

Farmhouses in the neighborhood were burned and many families were compelled to move into the fields with their household goods. Rev. A. A. Whitmore dropped dead in the pulpit at Anite, Iowa, recently. The London Telegraph, referring to the Belfast riots, says: I almost appears as if civil -war can be predicted as the result of Gladstone's proposal. I has already commenced. We cannot accuse the police of undue precipitancy, still less of a desire to wantonly shed "blood. The religious fanaticism which they have confronted has diaun upon them the enmity of both Prot estants and Catholics. In one way speak ing, events are a useful lesson. They re veal what a precipice weneared when there seemed to be a chance of Gladstone's bills passing. The London News says- Evi- dently the deadliest enemy of the peace of Ireland is the unhappy town of Belfast. Notwithstanding the natural exasperation caused by the defeat of home rule, not a single Catholic town has given a moment 's trouble. The action of the president in reappoint ing Matthews as recorder was a surprise to everybody but Matthews and the Dresi dent himself. The day that Matthews was rejected by the senate the president dropped him a note, telling him to be in no hurry to leave the city, as the matter was not set tled. Meanwhile a dozen or more hopeful candidates in the city began to press their claims, and revive and reiterate some old charges against Douglass regarding his Baltimore speech in the last campaign, wherein he had reflected on Cleveland's past character. I is said the charges stirred the president up to immediate ac tion against Douglass. The Democrats of the Twelfth Ohio dis trict nominated Gen. James W. Denver. The New York Republican state conven tion decided not to hold any sta te conven tion this year. Rev. J. T. McCrory of Pittsburg, an ag gressive Prohibitionist, like Haddock, is receiving letters threatening assassination. W. Kane, a messenger boy in a Chicago packing house, was robbed of $13,800 in checks and drafts. The window glass works of Wetherow & Wells, Massilon, Ohio, burned. Loss, $50,- 000 insurance, $45,500. Rev. Moses A. Hopkins, minister resident and consul general from the United States to Liberia, is dead. Oscar Falleure, secretary of the glass workers' association, and Schmidt, one of his companions in the strikers' riots, were both condemned to twenty years penal servitude for leading the attack on the Bordeaux glass works, which were de stroyed during the riots. Mr. Matthews, the English home secre tary, was re-elected to the house of com mons for East Birmingham without oppo sition. The Liberals at the last moment withdrew their candidate. Gladstone's election expenses footed up $955.77. Mrs. Stough and threr children were drowned at Conneaut, Ohio. Owing to the victory of the Germans in the municipal election at Metz the report of the council will in future be ma de in the German language instead of in French. I is believed in London that Mrs. Frank Leslie and De Leuville will soon be mar ried, after all the denials. Indiana democrats nominated the fol lowing state ticket: John C. Nelson of Cass county, nominated for lieutenant governor. Supreme court judge, John Coffroth W. Myer, secretary of state C. A. Munson, Auditor state 1rtasurer Thomas Byrne clerk of supreme court, Martin Krueger. i The London Standa rd says: I would he a misfortune if the foolish Catting case should end in war, hut at all costs Mexi co should avoid a struggle that could only end in defeat and disaster and which would throw her hopelessly back in commercial progress. Even if Mexico is in the right it would be better for her to suffer than at tempt to vindicate herself at so ruino us a price. Emperor Francis Joseph has written a letter to the Hungarian prime minister in which he expresses regret that the chances in the army, the resignation of Gen. Von Edelbheim, Gynyla, and the promotion of Gen. Jomski have been used by unscrupu lous agitators to arouse discontent in Hun gary. The emperor instructs Herr Von Fiza to meet further agitation with the fullest severity of the law. The letter is in tended as a concilatory manifesto to the Hungarians. At the lord mayor's banquet in London, Lord Salisbury in a'epeech, said: The ques tion of Irish independence after deep dis cussion and advocacy by the most power ful statesmen this country has ever seen, has been rejecte emphatically and equivo cally by an enormous majority of the peo pie of the kingdom. I is not unworthy to say that most of the voices in favor of sep arationhave been obtained by the person al influence of that great statesman, and upon other considerations, apart Irom the wants of the question, I believe that our opponents will realize that this is England's final decision, armed with which it is our duty to restore to Ireland that social or der, the loss of which is the only just i course of its discontent. I am convinced that in such a policy we shall find the strongest support in the enormous popula tion in which you are true representatives. Congressional nominations: Gen. J. W. Denver, Democrat, Twelfth Ohio district E. B. Taylor, Republican, Nineteenth Ohio district. I. M. Henry, professor of law in the Mis sissippi university at Oxford, shot and killed H. M.

Dr. D. W. Bliss of Washington, who is visiting relatives at Cragin Falls, 0., is suf fering so seriously from the effects of a run away accident in Cleveland a few days ago that grave fears are felt that he may not recover. Dr. Bliss is well known as the physician who attended Garfield during his last illness. Acting Secretary Fairchild has made a ruling that flour in sacks entitled to draw back, shipped at Grand Haven, Mich., may be entered for drawback at that place and transported in sealed cars to Canada with out unloading at Detroit or Port Huron, or further detention than to see that the customs seals are intact. Dr. Frank Hamilton, one of New York's most noted surgeons, who was one of President Garfield's physicians, died in New York, aged seventy-six. Dr. Hamil ton was the author of many valuable medical and surgical works. He was also a successful lecturer and the inventor of a number of surgical instruments. Ex-Speaker Keifer has drawn out of the congressional contest in the Eighth Ohio district. I is believed that the worst of the forest fires in Wisconsin is over, though the situ ation is still serious enough. Passenger rates from Kansas City to Chicago are reduced to $8. The President appointed Charles A. Ward to be collector of customs for the district of Huron, Mich., vice William Hartsuff, suspended Smith M.

Sparks has ma de a recommendation to the president that Maj. Clark, recorder of the general land office, be removed. There is considerable comment here over the president's appointment of Daniel Magone as collector of this port, and by many this action is regarded as the shrewd est political move the president has made. Secretary Lamar has instructed the gov ernors of the territories to expedite as much as possible the preparation of their annual reports, with the view to having them submitted earlier than heretofore. Postmaster General Vilas will leave for New York, in which vicinity he will spend a few days with relatives. Hp will sail from Buffalo for Ashland, Wis., where he will stay a little wnile.

Stillwater, Minn., Aug. 1,1886.Hon. William R. Marshall, St. Paul: Your kind favor of July 29 was received with many thanks. I do not take the Pioneer Press and have not seen the interview with CoL Fladd. I understand there are several so called histories of the James and Younger brothers, but I had nothing to do with them. They are merely a rehash of sensa tional newspaper stories. I never knew or ever had any interview with any one engag ed in getting the in up. As for the war.Ihave said that I was engaged in the bloody war fare on the borders of Missouri and Kan sas. As you truthfully said in your letter to the Pioneer Press, it was little bettei on both sides than murder. That is the original cause of my being in prison to day. In all that time of service in Mis souri, I was either a private or a subordi nate officer acting under orders. In 1862- 3 1 was a lieutenant in Capt. Jaerett 's company, Selby's brigade, of Price's army. All soldiers, whether they wore blue or the grey, know that they take an oath to bey the orders of their superior officers. As for the kind of a soldier I made, I leave that to the honorable federal and confederate soldiers that I fought against and with, who now li\ iD Missouri. I know that no one will say that he ever knew me to be guilty of any indi vidual act of cruelty to the wounded oi prisoners of our foe. I do not believe there is a brave federal soldier in Minnesota to day who, if he knew every act of mine dur ing the war, but what would give me the right hand of a soldier's recognition. I was engaged in many bloody battles wTiere it was death or victory. Itried to do my part, as any true soldier would. All articles, such as referred to, are false when they charge me with shooting un resisting men or wounded prisoners. No man who has respect for the truth will say that I ever ordered the execu tion of a citizen at any place during the warat Lawrence or anywhere else. Not one of my brothers ever soldiered with ine a day. As to a story going the rounds that during the war I captured fifteen men, tied them together and tried to shool through them all, it is false from beginning to end. I never heard of anything like it having been committed during the uar, in Missouri, or in Kansas or anywhere else. I know of no foundation' for the falsehood. The whole thing was so absurd that I never supposed any sensible man would believe it. Ihavealvtays sup posed the story was gotten up by some re porter as a burlesque on sensational news papers. Your humble, grateful friend, Y, COLEMAN You.aER S. I was Gen. E. McCulloch, not Gen. Robert McCulloch of Missouri, incom mand of the Northern district of Teias, headquarters at Bonham. He is now dead. C. Y. FOREST FIRES. Later Concerning: the Wisconsin Fires. A Milwaukee dispatch of the 11th gives the following general summary of the situ ation- Though the forests in the northern tier of counties of this state are still ablaze and are likely to remain so until rains quench the flames, the danger to the vil lages and towns dotting them is over, un less heavy gales should again sweep down upon them. While not over a dozen cases ol human cremation are reported, it is believ ed that many backwoodsmen and families remote from settlements cannot possibly have escaped. The fatality, to cattle has been terrible. Hundreds of charred bodies lie on the blakened track of the devastating fire. I is estimated that in Calumet, Clark, Marathon and a few adjacent counties 500 fami lies are rendered homeless and desti tute, and will suffer unlebsimmediate rebel is sent them. Many of these people had narrow escapes from death, having hidden in wells or submerged themselves up to their necks in streams, with with wet blan kets covering their heads, until the fires passed. In some places the fire swooped down so suddenly up on the people that they barely had time to seek this method of safety. In other places the roar of the flames was distinctly heard, and the terror stricken people fled madly before the flames to the neighboring viMages and towns. The loss cannot even be estimated. Hundreds of homes, dozens of saw mills, lumber camps and millions of feet of timber are in ashes. Acres of ripening grain were laid waste and hundreds upon hundreds of cattle weie burned to death. To-night's advices are that the fires are abating considerably by running into clearings and be cause the wind has died out. How ever, fears are entertained of a repetition should high winds pre vail again before rain appears. Along the valley division of the Chicago, Milwaukee, and at. Paul, heavy rains to-day extin guished all the flames, saving the largest cranberry marshes in that section. To day the suffocating clouds of smoke from the burning forests were borne by north winds down as far as Milwaukee. On the lakes, for miles from the shore, near Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay and even further south, the smoke clouds are so dense that the sun is obscured, and vessels can navigate only by continuous blowing of horns, it being impossible to see 400 feet ahead at mid day. The losses at Spencer aggregate 250,- 000. Business is suspended. Reports from the to wns of Eaton, Bellevue and Depere reveal much loss and distress. Nineteen families in the vicinity of Woodruff's old mill were burned out. The Classen family of five saved their lives by getting into the well. The damage at Pensaukee is esti mated at $20,000. Reports from Laney and Angelica, in Shawano county,say that the fire is very bad. Five families were burned out and their crops destroyed. The mill near Angelica burned. Fred Regan, near St. Nathans, Oconto county, lost five buildings and his crops. Bogus Reports of Indian Starvation. Mr. Upshaw, acting Indian commission er, makes the following statement: A few weeks ago an article ap peared in the newspapers in the West stating that the Indians at Leech Lake and Winnebagoshish were without supplies. On the 26th ultimo the following telegram was sent to the agent: "Sheehan, White Earth agency, Minnesota: I is re ported that Indians at Leech Lake and Winnebagoshidh are without supplies and hungry. Make report, and if supplies are required submit estimates by telegraph." A reply was received from Agent Sheehan dated White Earth Agency, July 28, as fol lows: "I have the honor to" sta te that during a recent visit to Brainerd for the purpose of suppressing the liquor traf fic, I met Indians irom that vicini ty who all invariably jstated that they were doing well1?" and earning considerable money from the picking and sale of berries. No complaint was made of any suffering from hunger neither has any such report reached me from the over seer aud physician at Leech Lake, and he would be appraised of the fac if any one. I don't hesitate to state that the report is sensational, and without foundation in fact. Should the exigency arise which would require action in this respect, no de lay will be made by me in notifying the de partment at once. Statements of like character have also been in circulation re garding the Indian's at the Shoshone agency, Wyoming." Tn Pnnersl Samuel J. Tilden. r^r- The funeral of Mr. Tilden took place i Greystone, near Yonkers, N. Y., on Satur day last. The host of mourners that found its way to Greystone filled to over flowing the ample mansion of the late states man long before the funeral services began. Among the first to arrive at the house were Gen. Alexander Hamilton, Charles A. Dana, Daniel Magone, John B. Trelor, ex Senator William II. Barnum, Samuel Randall, Treasurer Jordan, ex-Collector Murphy and ex-Assemblyman Morrow. The pall bearers are: Samuel Randall, Jo hn Bigelow, Daniel Manning, Smith M. Weed, Charles A. Dana. Dr. George L. Mill ner, William Allen Butler, Daniel Ma gone, J, B. Trelor, Charles E. Simmons and Aaron Vanderpool. President Cleveland entered the room with Secretary Endicott, Secretary Whitney and Mr. Lamont. Following next came the members of the family, Mr. Tilden's nephews and nieces. Gov. Hill arrived just as the ceremonies were beginning. He was seated next to Mayor Grace. The Rev. Dr. William Tucker, who had come from Andover, Mass., to perform the funeral services, read the funeral prayer of the Presbyterian chuich. The Madison Avenue Presbyterian church choir, \vhii-h had taken up a position at the foot of the main staircase, sang "Abide with me." The Rev. Dr. Tucker next delivered a short address on the personal qualities of the de ceased. The president, governor, many cabinet officers and delegations followed with the pall bearers in twenty-five car riages. As the casket at. borne through the marble-floored hall, the choir sang "Rock of Ages." Eight of Mr. Tilden's em ployes carried the body. Among them were the captain oi the yac ht Viking, the gaidener, the valet, and the coachman of the dead statesman. A train was taken to New Lebanon, where the remains were entombed. Gen. Boulanjrer, the Idol of Paris. Paris Letter: On a splendid black horse, at the head of a detachment of what we used to call the Cent guardsI don 't know what to call them now (showy dragoons, anyway)I saw a very handsome otlicer, reminding me of Hancock. "Who is that 7 I asked. "Ah'" said my friend, "everybody is ask ing that question just now. Bohold'the lion of the hour, the lady-killer, the brave and romantic successor of Gambetta, Boulan^ er! He is indeed a 'preux chesalier.'" He is what Hancock was at forty-five. He has thick brown hair, which he brushes up in two circles over the eyes, a tawny and heavy mustache very clear beautiful ej es that look dangerous, a power of fixing the gazer with them a long, straight, hand some nose, and pointed brown beard al ready streaked with grey, which he wears in a Vandyke marner, abroad-shouldered, rather McClellan figure an impassive, calm expression. He wasdressedinfulluniform, with countless orders across his breast. He has a geat deal of military style some might call it a parade style. At West Point they would have called him "Beau Bou langer." As he passed through an immense crowd and through the whole pelouse of Longchainp8, he was immensely cheered. Then has followed his bloodless duel with Lareinty, which has been "supremely ridic ulous to all good Englishmen, but supreme ly delightiul to all good Frenchmen." M. Boulanger has become the people's idea of a war minister. Gen. Lew Wallace on "Turkey ana the Turks." Gen. Lew Wallace, late United States minister to Turkey, lectured at Obatautua on "Turkey and the Turks" to a large audience. The general said there was no drunken Turks that the Tuiks loved children and were kind to animals. They are afraid of women, and they are the politest of people. They are also the devoutest of people, and yet they are essentially and wholly a military people, and are always brave and heroic The lecturer corrected some errors as to the domestic life of the Turks. Polygamy, while permitted in Turkey, was not obligatory or even prevalent. The in mates of the harem are by no means slaves. The lecturer paid ahigh trib ute to the matchless ability and high character of the sultan now reigning, and said that the Turks would bold Constanti nc pie until the six hostile powers could agree upon a dismemberment and distribu tion of the Ottoman empire, and that they were no nearer an agreement than they were fifty years ago. Pan ic and Rioting at Belfast, Ireland. A dispatch from Dublin of the 9th says In response to urgent telegrams from Bel fast this evening four hundred soldiers,some of them being on furlough, were summoned by bugle in the streets, and were dispatched in haste to Belfast by special train. A body of two hun dred dragoons and infantry will leave for Belfast. The police of Belfast will be su perseded by the militia. The excitement here is unabated. A panic is seizing the peaeeable inhabitants. The rioting shows no sign of abatement. The McKenna incident, which was princi pally the sacking of wine shops and other public houses, was repeated to-night, the result being that two persons were killed and another was fatally wounded. The latter was sent to the hospital, where he was treated and then dicharged, while numerous slight cases were retained. Twenty-six cases of serious in jury are reported, one of the sufferers being a boy who has since died. The total num ber of persons dead so far is believed to be six. The number wounded is unknown, but will probably reach two hundred. In spector General Reed, with a 6tnall escort, was surrounded by a mob fn Lodge street and was obliged to run for his fife. The Gold and Silver Product of the Year. In his report of the production of gold and silver bullion for the calendar year 1885, Dr. James Kimball, director of the mint, shows that the product of the first metal was increased about 1,000,- 000 over that of the same period in 1884, and that silver shows an in crease over the same calendar year of 1,800,000. The production was distrib uted among twenty-two states and territor iee,including Alaska, which hfis about $300-, 000 of gold and 20,000 of silver. In thegold producing states California leads with $12,- 700,000,followed byColorado with $4,200,- 000 Montana, 3,300,000 Dakota, $3,- 200,000 Nevada, $3,100,000, and Idaho $1,800,000.

In the production of silver Colorado leads with 15,800,000, making her product of the wo precious metals $20,000,000 the largest of any state in the Union. She is follow ed in the production of silver by Montana, $10,000,000 Nevada, $6,000,000 Utah, $6,750,000 Arizona, $3,800,000 New Mexico, $3,000,000 Idaho, $3,500,- 000: California, $2,500,000 and Dako ta, $200,000. The most notable changes have been in Montana and Idaho, the production of gold and sil ver in the former having increased from $9,000,000 in 1884 to nearly $13,500,000 1885, and the latter from $3,970,000 in 1884 to $5,300,000 in 1885.
