'**-■ "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.

11. P. 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
"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."

His Mother Told Him Something
Terrible Was Going: to Hap-
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.

sidered Eccentric.

MANKATO, Minn... 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. After a? year's resi
dence here Mr. Elias met death from
falling from a load of lumber on
Third street, which he. was conveying
to Glenwood cemetery, at that, time in
process of establishment. His was
■the first grave of an adult, In the
cemetery. He was between thirty and
thirty-five years, and. well known to
old residents. Mrs. Ellas was admin-
istratrix of the estate, and added
largely to its wealth.7. He was a specu
lator handling wheat, ; horses, etc., and
teaming when not otherwise engaged*

Shifting: of the Deck Cargo Caused
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. Mr. "Center de-
nied that the Colima carried dynamite,
but there was a quantity of gunpowder
on board ; which was stored- in "the
mazaglne. ........ :;.■.! ,-,, :.. il
Mexican government will henceforth
take strict cognizance of the manner
in which all ships touching at Mcxi-
can ports are loaded. The following
dispatch was received today at the
war department from the captain of
the port of Acapulco: . . _. . ".?..
The Colima disaster was caused by
the heavy deck, cargo. All of the
ships of the Pacific Mail company are
loaded in this manner and other Mcxi-
can boats have the same custom. I
beg of you for further instruction on
this point. (Signed) •7 y .
M. ISAGERE, Captain of Port.
Orders will probably be accordingly
issued on Monday to all principal
ports, both coasts, to detain in the
future all boats touching at Mexican
ports cm which the cargo is not proper-
ly loaded entirely in the hold. The
ships will be held at the ports until the
cargo is re-stored or the matter other-
wise arranged.

The Wesley Methodist church was
The Wesley Methodist church was
yesterday , afternoon crowded to its
doors with a congregation that assem-
bled to hear President Northrop de-
liver, the baccalaureate sermon before
the graduating class of the university.
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. Webb,* of Boston, a member of
the American board of foreign mis-
sions, read the Scriptures, and was
followed by the singing of "America"
by the congregation. . Prayer was of-
fered by Rev. Waldron, of the Free
Baptist church.
President Northrop then rose to de-
liver his address. He looked- some-
what haggard as the result of a pro-.
tracted cold which has confined him
to : the house for several days. L His
voice was remarkably clear, however,'
and. every* word could . be distinctly
heard in all parts of the auditorium. '
As he progressed he became more
earnest, and, though following his
manuscript closely, he lacked none of
the eloquence that always character-
izes his delivery. He took as his text
Matthew xxii., 35, 40. .
His .sermon was a . masterly - effort
which held the interest of his audience
to ■ the end. He pointed out to the
graduates that much wisdom was re-
quired in deciding what they, should
do, but God would plainly show them
their duty. They should have an ob-
ject In life, an unselfish one, which'
should be never for an Instant aban

Sometimes my arms were so covered
with bees that from wrist to elbow

time when I was stung I had \ found
a swarm on a high limb and was

fall to the ground with the bees. In
doing this. I squeezed one of the bees,

: stung me just above the eye, l Since I
left the farm the folks have given up

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
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

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 ,; . .* ' ;. -
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 .'''■■■■'" ";
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-

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. "
.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. The oldest coffee
i estates In Nicaragua are but fourteen
; or fifteen years old, yet some of them
i 1 have over 500,000 trees, yielding a net
: profit annually during the past four
j i-years of 12}& cents to 15 cents, per
tree. ':?? 7? ' ' ' ". y ' . ?yy

Has Mnch to Do With the Reac-
Conditions Now Im-
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
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
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.
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. '
.Europe seems to no longer attach
any serious Importance to the position
In this. country. Observers" there seem
to } have reached the conclusion that
our t agitation about free coinage is
but an ephemeral phase of popular Ig
norance, destined to disappear under

mon sense of the people at large; and

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.
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
