MINNEAPOLIS GLOBULES. Paul Bora, the West "hotel bell boy who obtained a wide notoriety at the beginning of the Gins murder .trial, broke his leg while s<*",'.ilL'nb' with an- other boy Saturday night '**-■ "Olympia Up to Date," the new play to be presented by the graduating class of the state university at the Metro- politan theater this afternoon and evening, is pronounced by competent I critics the l><*st amateur production ever put oh in this city. The Wilbur Opera company, com- prising seventy people, and strictly up to date with "living pictures," every one of which is a work of art, will be- gin a two weeks* engagement at the Grand tonight. Three matinees will be given each week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The vaudeville entertainment which began a week's engagement at the Bijou last night will doubtless pack that popular play house at each per- formance. The International Vaude ville company is the name of the clever organization that opened last . evening in a bill of exceptional merit. The company is strong in good looks, talent and disposition to please, and last night's performance went with a vim and dash quite refreshing. Hilda Thomas, the popular comedienne, heads the list of stars. The first temple of Ancient Arabic Older of Nobles of the Shrine among colored Masons in this state was in- stituted Wednesday evening by Wil liam Lester. The following officers were elected: Grand potentate, Wil liam R. Morris; chief rabban, James A. Ross; assistant rabban, James V. Kemp; high priest and prophet, C. W. Lee; Oriental guide, P. E.

Hubbell Talks of the Re- sources of the North Star State. H. P. Hubbell, of Winona, is regis -8 tered at the West. Air. Hubbell Is known throughout the state as a very quiet, studious and conservative man. But there is one thing over which the gentleman can and does grow enthusi astic. That is the state of Minnesota. Mr. Hubbell Is one of the head officials of a fire insurance company. For fif- ; teen or twenty years he has gone about the state looking after what are known as local agencies. He has visited every one of the ninety counties in the state, and is doubtless as familiar, ; and perhaps more so, with the re- sources of the different parts of the state as any other man In. the state. His business as a fire insurance man makes him a close observer, especially in the matter of noticing what im provements are made in the cities and towns of the state. yiVl do not care about get- ting my name into print," said Mr, Hubbell -to a Globe re- . porter, "but really it is a genuine pleas- ure to me to speak of our glorious state as I find her. The growth, the development of the state and the pros- perity and contentment of the people are things which I notice and think . about nearly every day that I am traveling about. I have spent so much of my life in Minnesota that perhaps I cannot fairly and Intelligently com- pare our commonwealth with others. But I do know that our people are con- tented. They are in Minnesota to ..; stay. This contentment is due mainly to the fact that the climate Is good and the soil rich and productive. There is another thing which is calculated to make Minnesotans contented: Peo ple who have moved out of this state and taken up lands elsewhere have not fared as well as they expected, and have written their old friends and • neighbors to that effect, and as a result the latter are all the more satisfied In consequence. "Years ago I was quite an enthusi- ast when it came to discussing the con- ditions, the prospects and the possibil ... ities of Minnesota. With each sue- ceeding year I grow more and more enthusiastic. And I maintain that no I man who travels and sees what I see each year can feel other than that Minnesota is the banner state in the grand galaxy of states. There is noth- - ing which I can see to form a set-back. On the contrary, everything points to greater growth and prosperity with each year. There is a very wholesome tendency toward crop diversification. The extent to which dairying is devel- oping would surprise most people. Why, we have been going through a terrible and almost .unprecedented panic, and yet some of the towns ln this state have gone ahead In the mat- ter of building and increasing in pop- ulation, just as if nothing unusual was bothering the business world. "It Is really a fact that in a good many of the towns of the state the - people would not know about the panic but for the newspapers. The growth ' of many of these beautiful towns has I been somewhat remarkable. It has been largely of the nature of a boom. I feel perfectly competent to dwell upon this phase of the matter. When I go to a town I have a diagram of the place, or a portion of the place and with the local agent go about looking up property, . and the most natural thing in the world is for mc to notice new buildings and additions to old ones— ln fact, that is my business. .Whenever .there is a new building going up in a town I ani sure to notice it. This being the case, and I travel- ing In all parts of the state, I am as competent to determine in regard to B improvements in the state at large as any one. Ther) low price of lumber and other building material accounts to a great extent for this activity in build- ing. Now that the farmers who have wheat are getting a high price for it, it is likely building operations will take another impetus. On the whole, the .. ■ present crop conditions and prospects are better than- they ever were In Mm nesota, ln my judgment. I have just como from the Red river valley, where I traveled by- wagon a good deal. The wheat Is in great shape. It is thick in the rows, and is stooling very nicely. The wheat crop in the entire valley was not damaged to the extent of even 1 per cent by the recent frosts, j A few days ago I was In the Minneapolis & St. Louis section, • and the country simply looks beautiful. Surely there is no reason for Minnesotans feeling other than proud of their state, and especially in the magnificence of her agricultural promises."

J CORONER'S INQUEST TODAY PHYSICIANS SAY THE LACERA- PHYSICIANS SAY THE LACERA- TIONS WERE ALL CAUSED . BY THE EXPLOSION, ELIAS STICKS TO HIS STORY. His Mother Told Him Something Terrible Was Going: to Hap- yen. The coroners-- inquest over the re mains of Mrs. Martha Elias and her daughter Annie, the two, victims of Saturday morning's terrible tragedy, will be held at the county morgue this morning at 9 o'clock by- Coroner Kistler. The probabilities are that the inquest will result in the clearing from all blame in the affair of Loren Elias, the weak-minded son and broth er, now in custody at the central sta tion. It is thought by the police that the inquest will show that Annie Elias, the daughter, came. to her death form a bullet wound inflicted from a revolver in the hands of her mother, Martha Elias, and that the mother came to her death from a bullet wound inflicted* by her own hand. Conner Kistler as well as his deputies and the police department are thor oughly convinced that Mrs. Elias killed herself, and that Loren is blame less. A number of things warrant this conclusion. Another examination of Mrs. Elias' remains was held at the county morgue yesterday morning by a number of physicians. The wounds about the head were carefully examined, and the physicians were clearly of the opinion that every wound and appar ent cut was caused by the one shot fired from the 44-caliber ; Colts re volver, and that the explosion was the direct cause of the laceration of the face. ' '-' - y The story told by Loren Ellas to Mayor Pratt arid Superintendent of Police Smith has been told and retold, always the same and, with the excep tion of one or two minor details, Is corroborated by outside evidence. Elias states that on Friday after her return from St. Paul, his mother told him that she was going to give him .SIOO and that she wanted him to go to St. Paul himself and get away as something terrible was going to hap pen and she wanted him to. have a home. The testimony of friends shows that the mother cared a great deal for her indolent son. Elias states that Saturday morning about 4 o'clock or shortly before, as near as he can fix the time, he left the home by means of the rear kitchen window and shed-roof, as he had done several times before, and went out Portland avenue to beyond the Mil waukee car shops where he spent the greater portion of the day until he be- gan loitering about town. The drug gist and people residing In "the im mediate neighborhood state that it has not been an uncommon thing for Elias to be around at all hours of the night a-nd that he has frequently left the house by the kitchen window. " ,' Saturday night a lady, whose name Is withheld, called at the central police station and was closeted for some time with Superintendent Smith. This lady is an intimate friend of the Elias family and from her It was learned be- yond a doubt that the mother had on more than one occasion threatened to take the life of herself and daughter. The mother was constantly brooding over first one thing and then another and the employes at Hart's drug store and the neighbors do not hesitate to say that Mrs. Elias has been out of her mind for at least two weeks past. A further proof that Mrs. Ellas shot her daughter and then herself is that she made an attempt to take Annie's and her own life some time ago by turning on the gas in their bedroom. On this occasion , Annie Ellas retired first and was soon sound asleep. The mother dressed herself in a light wrap per, and, turning on the gas, lay down on the bed. Both would have been asphyxiated had not the odor of the escaping gas awakened Annie, who had strength enough to turn it off and rouse her mother. While the murdered girl has worried greatly about her brother and his actions, she ' worried also about her mother, and frequently asked Dr. Stone, the family physician, if he thought her mother would ever become insane again. When Officer Will A. Martin and his companions broke down the main door of the flats shortly after the shooting Saturday morning, he found the outer doors locked, and also that the door opening into the bedroom which had been oc cupied by Loren Ellas was not only closed, but locked. In speaking of the tragedy last night, Officer Martin stat ed that he believed that Mrs. Ellas had remained awake all night waiting for her son to leave. The nature of the wound and the position of the bodies • and the revolver is one of the* strongest facts pointing towards suicide on the part of Mrs. Elias. The revolver laid j partly on her shoulder and partly on I the pillow, in exactly the position it would have dropped, while the right hand was about three inches from the butt of the pistol. - The Inside of the hand was somewhat stained, as though ] the mother had turned the daughter's head somewhat before killing, herself. One of the important facts which the police hope to ascertain today is where and when the 44-callbre Colt's revolver was bought with which the deed was committed. The prevailing opinion is I that Mrs. Ellas purchased it Friday in St. Paul, especially as It was a new one. If it can be ascertained where this revolver was purchased and who purchased it, then the mystery will be cleared up. The probabilities are that Loren Elias will be held in custody. That he is insane there is no doubt, and the- police think he ought to be in the asylum. HAD LIVED IN MANKATO. All ot the Elias Family Were Con- sidered Eccentric.

June .?,.— Much excitement prevails here today at the report of the tragic deaths of Mrs._ Martha Ellas and daughter Annie, which occurred ' In Minneapolis Satur- day. ' The Ellas family were residents of Mankato in 1870, and had an estate valued at- $10,000.

Arthur Jordan, the thirteen-year old son of Paul Jordan, residing at 624 Fourth avenue north, was seriously injured while out fishing yesterday afternoon by being kicked by a horse. In company with some other boys, the young fellow was out fishing yes- terday. When it came time to return home they were hitching up the team, when one of the horses kicked the boy in the face. He was brought to the city and taken to St. Barnabas' hospital, where it was found that his nose had been broken and his face badly cut. — *** ~ "■■ COLIMA WAS TOPHEAVY. COLIMA WAS TOPHEAVY. Shifting: of the Deck Cargo Caused Disaster.. SAN FRANCISCO, June 2.— The con- dition of the Colima when she left Mazatlan Is an Important one In view of the telegrams printed yesterday; In these dispatches from three different sources comes the statement that the cargo of the Colima shifted and that the steamer was top-heavy because of deck load. These statements come * from sur vivors who related them on the San Juan and at Mazatland; from Mazanil lo, where some of the survivors remain, . and from information given to George H. Herbert, manager of the Mazanillo & Colima railroad, who had sent much of the news of the wreck :- by way of the City of Mexico. The question Is, was the loss of the Colima due to the bad slowing of cargo and to a deck load too great for the steamer to bear In heavy sea? Alexander Center, the general agent of the Pacific Mail Steamship com- pany in this city, said positively, that he does not believe the statement that the cargo had shifted during the gale and he declared that the Colima was loaded in the best possible manner, and was anything but overloaded when she passed out of the harbor of San Francisco on May 18.

The graduates, to the number of 250, occupied the seats Immediately before the pulpit. The academics were robed in their caps and gowns, j giving them an air of dignity which was only sur- passed by the faculty, which occupied seats further back. After "AVeVerum," sung by the university- choir, the divine blessings were invoked by Rev. M. S. Hughes. Rev.

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, May. 18.— If the British had occupied Corinto a little longer than they did, they would I have been able to capture a British steamer, the De Bay, which arrived there two days 'ago, loaded with a full supply of modern, im- proved field artillery rifles ', equip- ments and ammunition for about 5,000* officers and soldiers of . the Nicara- guan army, and Admiral Stephenson would thus have been able to collect the £15,500 claimed by Great Britain as an indemnity from Nicaragua without any difficulty. But the Brit- ish war ships sailed away on May 5, and this most valuable cargo arrived at ' Corinto on May 16, under the British flag, to the great delight ■'. of the Nicaraguan authorities, . who feared that this supply of war mate- rial would fall Into the hands of, the British. It is considered more than likely that Admiral Stephenson would have SEIZED AND DETAINED the De Bay until the indemnity was paid, and therefore there is a great deal of rejoicing here at. its escape, for it would have made an admirable substitute for the J port and custom dues of Corinto, which the British ad- miral was prevented from collecting by the fact that the Nicaraguan gov ernment declared the ..port,',' closed shortly after it was occupied* by • the: British. Nobody here doubts that had the British admiral captured this sup- ply of war material and satisfied Great Britain's claim against Nic- aragua by its sale, that the act" would have so thoroughly 7 hmuiliated the present government of Nicaragua as to have caused its : overthrow at once by.a revolution. It is not doubted that Admiral Stephenson could have taken possession of the De Bay's cargo in spite of the fact that the steamer was under, the British flag, as the war material was purchased in Ger- many in 1894 by the present govern- ment of Nicaragua. Then again, peo ple here Insist that Great Britain was desirous of obtaining a ,; . .* ' ;. - : "COALING STATION", : on the island of Corinto, and another "coaling station": on Corn island, near the Atlantic entrance to the proposed interoceanic canal through Nicaragua, and thus Great Britain would have been able to control both entrances to . j the proposed canal. It is also claimed ,- that- jit was the intention i of I Great? : Britain to cause the j overthrow ?of the ? present government of Nicaragua arid to place In powet- native "Nlcaraguans of her own choosing, and there are some prominent natives of this coun- try who are very fond of Great Britain.*: -It is claimed by the irritated people here that Admiral Stephenson and several of his officers,- when at Corinto on April 25, just before they 'actually took armed possession of that port and .island, publicly declared to many per- sons, among whom was W. T. : Tisdale, ?'aj United States citizen and 'the agent ; for the Pacific Mail Steamship com- pany, that the .'''■■■■'" "; MONROE DOCTRINE, :?' so often referred to -in the United States press and by that people, . is a myth that the*: United States would not, and could not If they desired, en- force, and it* ia . added that the British officers said that the occupation of Corinto was intended to test the ques tion. It should be said in conclusion, however, that it has been denied that there was any truth In the story that the British officers made Buch state- ments. **> ,-': ' .-' 7? - ; 7r»- /y'T- The export of the coffee crop of 1894 -\ from this country is now so nearly ■ completed that a fair estimate can be made of the aggregate, and it is be- lieved that it will amount to 16,000,000 pounds, against about 13,000,000 pounds last year. The season for gathering coffee and preparing it for the market* has been very favorable and the qual ity is unusually good. The price in Europe and in the United States for good to best qualities is from IS to 22 cents gold per pound. " THE EXPORT TAX .is two cents, Nicaragua currency, per : pound, :if exported from . San ! Juan del Sur,.or via San Juan del Norte- river. I • This l- Is one-half cent per pound In favor of I Corinto, although seriously against the interest of many .of the coffee estates in the departments of Choutals, Granada and Rlva, and for the purpose of influencing shipments to be made over the national railroad, extending from the town of Granada to the port of Corinto.^' The aggregate of this tax" to the government, of Nic- aragua this year, 1895, will be about ; '$265,000, or, at the present rate of ex- change, about $132,000 gold. This ; money is; usually advanced to the gov ernment by a bank, and exporters go to that bank for tax ""certificates and l permission to ship.

SERIOUS INJURY TO CROPS Has Mnch to Do With the Reac- Conditions Now Im- proving-. NEW YORK, June 2.— Henry Clews, in his weekly review of the financial situation, says: On the ' stock exchange there has been this week * some interruption of the prevailing buoyancy. First in London and then here, there was a disposition to realize the large profits on the late advance in prices; all of which was natural and healthy. Next j came discouraging reports of serious i injury to the crops from the late spurt i of cold weather, together with rumors of injury from insect pests; to which the market was naturally sensitive after having counted upon the pros- • pect of a fine harvest. Concurrently with these facts, came reports of a renewal of "bearish" -attacks upon American investments by certain Lon- don journals notorious for their pes simistic attitude towards our securi- ties. - And to these interruptions must be added the occurrence of holidays both here and in London. The effect of all this has been to draw out a cer- tain extent of "bear" attack and to produce some yielding in prices. The effect of these influences, however, has been less than might have been ex- pected in view of such an important advance as has occurred, and towards ' the close of the week a recovering tendency set in, notwithstanding that both today and Monday are bank hol idays in London. 7*7; . The market appears to have dis- counted .the worst probabilities re specting- the wheat crop and now be gins to consider the other side of the case. .. So far, the facts are that the crop is unusually backward, owing first to drouth in the early stages of its growth and then to check from , sudden exposure to severe cold. It is not impossible that this may, in any case, prove a PERMANENT INJURY; but at the same time the extent of •the injury must greatly depend upon ,the future-course of the weather. It is not at all impossible, nor even un- likely, that with plenty of moisture the, crop may yet turn out a fair or average. one. The plant has not yet absorbed the soil elements of nutri tion, and should the a tmospher is ele ments of growth prove propitious the recovery of the plant may surpass what is now anticipated. Moreover, the . complaints . are confined almost exclusively to. the wheat crop. The corn crop is vastly more important, its bulk being fourfold and its value more than double that of wheat.- This year, owing to the high price of corn and the low price of wheat, the acreage of Indian corn is likely to , be unusually large, and at present there are no con ditions unfavorable to the prospects of the crop. Taking the agricultural prospects as they exist today/there is nothing in them really incompatible with the hope of a good harvest. Very much, however, must depend upon the course of the weather for the next few weeks. There is no certainty in either direction, and the present situation, therefore, calls for reservation of judg ment as to the harvest factor in in- vestments. .Apart- from these crop considerations, the underlying condi tions and tone of the market remain unchanged. There IS NO ABATEMENT of confidence in the permanence of the revival of general trade which set in with the spring business. The best evidence of the recovery in 'the man- ufacturing Industries is the continu ous advance in wages, mostly volun tarily granted by employers. In most cases the new. tariff duties seem to impose, no obstacle to production ; in some, manufacturers find a positive advantage. The problem now, In- deed, seems to be less how to compete with foreigners in the home market than how to outdo them in the foreign markets, in which the chances for Americans are becoming more hopeful and are attracting increased atten tion. Among those in close contact with our industries, the conviction ap- pears to be gaining ground that we* have entered upon a period of unusual growth and prosperity in manufactur- ing enterprise generally, and that, In some of the leading staples, we are entering the list for an active compe tition in the world's markets. THE IMPROVED STATUS of our investments in Europe shows signs of further progress. The educa tion of investors seems to be passing from the narrow and pretentious crit ics of the press to the better informed and more candid bankers and financ iers,, whose judgments really direct the course of European investment. It Is a telling comment upon the value of editorial opinion in London, that while economists^ and, statists have been persistently decrying our corporate in- vestments, bankers have, within the last three months, placed some $130, - of our bonds and stocks in the London and continental markets. This week; an Issue, of $5,000,000 of railroad bonds drew out $10,000,000 of offers from London before '-. the securities were openly offered; and besides that $2,000, - of obligations of an electrical cor- poration were negotiated in the same market.

The Centaur Company, 77 Murray Street, Nev York Crrr» their judgment is a safe one. In the South and West, a very marked reac tion against national free coinage has set in under the diffusion of informa tion through the various sound money agencies, and the best judges of senti ment and . politics in - those sections agree that the silver kings can make no further progress In their efforts to create a government market for their product. There is a quasi-conservative element among us who have clung to the hope that a -settlement might be reached through establishing interna tional bimetallism; but the hopes of ( that class are fading before the grow- ing, evidence of the Improbability of .bringing*.. about, such an agreement; if not also from growing misgivings whether such an arrangement -would prove equal to providing for a present annual world-product of $200,000,000 of the metal, and 'possibly of a yearly increase in addition. hlSi ENGLAND'S DISPOSITION in the matter has been shown this week by the chancellor of the exchequer's emphatic . public declaration that, un- der no conditions whatever, would the British government sanction any de- parture from the historic gold stand- ard policy of the nation. From the op- posite political party came authorita tive warnings to Mr. Balfour and Lord j Salisbury that the Conservatives would oppose any concessions towards bimetallism. This materially lessens the hope of England ■ supporting a double standard^ policy; and, as Eng- land goes, so Germany will follow, If not even France also. Clearly, there- fore, ' conference or no. conference, in- ternational bimetallism Is now sur- rounded with greater doubt than ever as a settlement of the question. A 'recognition .'of.- that fact will tend to greatly clarify the issue in this coun- try, which must, later .confine the choice of our people between the gold standard on the one side, and the single silver standard with free coinage on the other side. In reality, this should settle the question; though the fanati cal stubbornness of. the silverltes may help to keep the issue in politics for some time longer. In the meantime, it is certain that no legislation favorable to silver could be enacted so long as the presidency I*3 in its present in- cumbency.
