ANTI-TRUST CONVENTION.
or Thirty Foer SUlu
] AtMMblt ■( Chicago.
An anil-trust convention met in Chicago oa
the sth.
Tho convention «u vailed by Governor
Route Nelson, of Minnesota, who, tn ob»df
encc to a resolution passed by tbe legislature
of bis Mate, l*»«ed an fit v Ration to all the
states of the 1 nlbn to take part and devtse
i means to abolish trusts and combines. Tbirty
j four states responded by appointing delegates
| and nearly that many states were tvpcescuted
! when the convention was cash'd to order by
Governor Nelson, who read an addres*. !r»
which he gavn a history of »hr anti-trust
: movement In Mtnusnofa, which had resulted
jln the call the convention. General N«l
; son (i.sieviv.d the Sherman nett law,
: he said, was hut t*~ experimental one,
j which had resulted in no practical good. The
: |aw I* we**-, be said, because it does uot de
j flit* the crime. "What Is needed.” said the
■ governor, ••is a law which will enumerate the
' act* of the trust which art* illegal It ought
lo prescribe * abort au.l form of ln-
I dlctment. Ttu; legislatures of the varteus
slates must be looked to for relief."
' Tho question of credentials occupied much
of the convention's time. The committee on
j permanent officers recommended Governor
Nelson as permauem chairman, Edward S.
Nealy of Washington for secretary and J. E.
Morton of Kentucky for assistant secretary.
Ignatius Donnelly cauic Into the couven
; lion w ith a series of resolutions w hich he w ill
: ask It to adopt as a declaration against trusts.
i Governor Nelson listened to the various
! resolutions which were Introduced and re
ferred them to the committee without corn
, men!.
UavU of Minnesota submitted a resolution
: for the formation of a permanent association
; with three committees. This is the one that
will probably be adopted.
Curtis of lowa read a resolution demand
ing a national Investigation of trusts.
Corcoran of Utah offered a resolution cm*
bodying the Idea of ownership of coal lands
by the slate.
Clemens of Kansas advocated confiscation,
and Donnelly of Minnesota Introduced a res
olution Indorsing this itlca. Mr. Donnelly
criticised the United States Supreme Court lu
unmeasured terms.
The convention then adjourned uutll to
morrow at 10 o'clock. The committee on
resolutions met this evening to prepare its
rejKtrt.
Governor NclaUU of Minnesota called
the anti-trust convention to order Tuesday. It
was expected that the first fight of the se-slon
would begin, for It was generally known that
the Donnelly, or the radical faction, hail been
beaten In the committee on resolutions and
would carry the fight to the fioor of the eon
vcntlon. Chairman Rosewater of the com
mittee on resolutions soon read the preamble,
when Donnelly moved a* a substitute a de
mand for government purchase of anthracite
coal lands. Ilenry I) Lloyd of Chicago
wanted bituminous lands also purchased, and
a fight on those two amendments lusted two
hours, after which Mr. Rosewater moved the
previous question, und the committee report
was carried. The fight w.rs kept up all day,
however, by tile extremists, but they were
outvoted at every turn.
The resolutions adopted set forth at length
the evils of the trust system as at present
maintained, and call upon the convention to
create a permanent association, to lie known
as the Anti-Trust Association of the United
Slates, consisting of three representatives
from each state and territory: also nn organ
isation of anti-trust associations In each state
and territory »o aid the natioual association
In securing uniform legislation and rigid exe
cution of the law. The resolutions declare
over-cupitnllxatlon of the corporate power to
be largely responsible for the breaking down
of credit and financial di-tres* now prevailing
and recommend stringent national anti state
legislation and supervision to limit the bond
ing of corporate property and Issue of stocks
representing same to actual value. It Is rec
ommended that each member of 'he conven
tion use all honorable means for the election
to ofllce, whether local, state or fedcr.il, of
those only »ho afe exponents of this anti
nl menu It Is recommend I othat
legislatures of the various suites enact such
legislation as will make It unlawful for any
corporation to enter Into any trust or com
bination detrimental to trade or commerce
and Injurious to public welfare.
The resolutions were not radical enough to
-uit the Donnelly and Weaver element and
they gave notice of another meeting at the
Palmer House to-night. Before the close of
the Uential Hall meeting, J. M (juinn of the
Butte, Montana. Miner, offered a free coinage
resolution which was passed by a small ma-
Thirty members of the anti-'rust conven
tion. representing thirteen Mf.t.-s. bolted from
the regular meeting nod organize 1 to-night.
All the bolters wo.v Populists. General .1. B.
Weaver or lowa was elected chairman and
Mr. McClellan of Kansas, secretary. Igna
tius Donnelly and others made speeches and
a resolution wa* adopted calling upon the bi
metallic league to convene an industrial con
vention sometime In the full in ( hiengo for
liie purpose of :i thorough political organiza
tion to aver the principles of the Floyd reso
lutions.

DISASTER IN MEXICO.
TWRNTT-SIX MEN SMOTHERED.
ratalltv la a \«ai Mine Nsar tbs Kin
brand* Ulver, Caused by Burn
ing Timbers.
A serious fire broke out Saturday night la
•he Puente coal mines. are. situated Iw
Metier*, about four mild fro«* T.Agle Pass,
tnd operated by tit* Mexican National Rail
way Com per. V. There were sixty miners at
* T, rk in the mine at the time of the breaking
sut of the fire, but thlrtr-feu*- ;I them were
working near »h» mouth of the tunnel and
made Uielr escape, leaving twenty-six of i
their number to perish from the heat and j
imokc and from the poisonous gases which
tpread like lightning to every porliou of the 1
nines.
When it »aa keen that all effort* were uae
<esa to rescue the Imprisoned miners, every
| energy was directed to saving the property
from destruction. Pipes were laid into the
-lino as far a< any work could be done and
nose attached and water poured oulo the
burning timber*, uml in three hours the fire
was übder control. The gas wn* so bad,
, uowever, that the work of recovering the
bodies will he alow. Two bodies were brought
7iit on Sunday.
All the tuiuers employed were Mexlcaus
xud most of them leave destitute families. It
is reported that all parties responsible for the
management of the mines have been placed
under arrest pending an investigation of the
'.'■uses of the disaster. But for the prompt
action of the officials of the Mexican Inter
national and their heroic efforts, the mine
would have been destroyed and none of the
bodies would have been recovered. This is
the first great disaster In the history of coal
mining In Mexico.
A REBELLIOUS PRESBYTERIAN.
An Albany .Minister Leaves I lie Church
on I)r. Ilrlgg*’ Account.
Dr James Ecob of the Second Presbyterian
, Church of Albany. In his sermon Sunday
morning, renounced his allegiance to the
Presbyterian denomination because of the dc
| clslon of the general assembly In the Briggs’
ease. Dr. Ecob's church is one of the most
influential ia Albany, and Lt* congregation Is
made up of the most Intelligent men In the
city. After reviewing the action of the gen
eral assembly and arraigning It for Its bigotry,
be said.
••I leave the Presbyterian church because it
has taken cn a garment that ha* lain buried
In the grave for more than two centuries. It
» noils of the earth, of death."
lie then with a dramatic gesture said; "1
brush It off forever.”
He gave hi* rrnsons for leaving, saying
that he considered that a further battling
with the questions would be hut u guerrilla
warfare with hut little hope for auccesa for
the minority. He characterized the general
assembly at ••the most Intolerant, bigoted
and reactionary body of all religious denomi
nations.*'
lie advised that the liberal element In the
Presliyterian Church unite with the Congre
gational Ute, the Cumberland Presbyterian*,
the Free Will Baptists and the broad wing of
the Episcopal Church to form “the great free
Church of America."
Legal Tender Notes.
Secretary Carlisle’s avowed purpose to Issue
legal tender note*, if necessary to obtain gold,
I* not pleasing to the speculators who have
been trying to force him to make an issue of
bonds, and they are hunting the statute books
to find some prohibition upon hi* authority In
the matter. The power conferred by section
11,700 of the Revised Statute* I* a broad one,
however, and is In itself as complete an au
thority as could he desired. 11 provide* that
the secretary may purchase coin with any of
the • notes of the United .States authorized by
law, at such rales and upon such terms as he
may deem moat advantageous to the public
Interest."
The Treasury department 1* said to hold
that the net of 1878 which forbade the
further cancellation and retirement of United
State* notes, did not debar a future reissue
of notes up to the original amount of $400.-
UUO.OOO. authorized by the act of March 3rd,
]HO3. The outstanding amount of the*c notes
now 1* $246,081,016.
The geld reserve fell below $20,000,000 on
the 3rd.

President Shortall, In behalf of the Illinois
Humane Society. I* determined that the 700-
mlle road race between cowboys from ( had
ron, Nebraska, to Chicago shall not be rid
den. The race was first announced about
three month* ugo. The enterprise Is said to
have been conceived in the fertile bralr. of a
well-known showman, who has spent much of
hi* life in the West.
No sooner did President Shortall hear of
the Intended race last March than he decided
tl.at such a cruel exhibition must be stopped.
That no possible means of averting the con
test might be left untried. Mr. Shortall sent
last week to Secretary Weir a letter of warn
ing. and pointed out that such a race would
he In direct violation of the law of Ilijnols.
The Humane Society will place officers nil

action of tills kind that lias been taken, and
the prosecutor announces that it. will be fol
lowed by the arrest of drivers and seizure of

TAMING DOWN A FOX.
A Pennsylvania Woman Idt’tvnh In the
Trick.
Ond morning last winter Mrs.
Byron ,J. Mapos,' of Ash Hill, Lacka
wunna county, Pennsyßftriffi, spied a
fox creeping stealthily through {hr
snow a short distance back of her
hen houso. Sho was pooping through
a cruck, und the fox lookod so lank
und hungry that, sho felt sorry for it
She didn't want to scare it away, so
site puckered up her lips ond
squeaked through tho wrack at It as
to a dog. Tho fox instantly picked
up its ours, raised one paw antf
stared at tho crack. Mrs. Mapos
mode tho noiso vfith Itor lips again,
ond tho inquisitive fox give a slight
whine and crept neuror to tho hdd
house. She continued to squeak
through tho crock, ond tho fox sot
up und worked its lips and nostrils
us if it hod sconted something good
to cat.
Tho animal lookod so thin and
famished that the dnsiro to feed it
took possession of tho kind-heartod
woman. She had some scraps of
meat on a plate that she had brought
out for tho hor.s, and, while tile fox
was watching the crack, Mrs. Mopes
tiptoed to the hen yard and tossed
the moat Over tho pickets. Tho fox
gave a sturt wheri the meat fell on
tho snow, but its hunger quickly
overcame its fear, und it turned
about and began to devour tho moat
like a hungry dog. Mrs. Mapos ran
back to the crack and chirped at tho
fox. and the fox wagged its tall and
glanced that Way sovoral times.
There was enough moat for a good
inoal, und tho fox settmperod off as
soon us it had gobbled it down.
Mrs. Mopes was pleased to think
she had succeeded in inducing tho
fox not to make a raid on her poultry,
and tho way tho poor follow ato did
her good. She didn’t think sho would
over see lior wild friend again, but
when sho entered tho hen houso the
next morning Bhe saw tho fox gazing
at tho crack as before. It was sitting
on its haunches in the snow, and when
Mrs. Mapos made tho noise with lior
lips it cocked its head, shook its tail
and looked wistful. Mrs. Mapos
throw some meat over the pickets and
the fox pitchod into it ns though It
had conic u long way and was in a
hurry. While it was feeding, she
said: “Hero, foxoy! Hero, foxoy!” to
it through the crack, ond at tho
sound of hor voice it stopped its jaws
and listened. Mrs. Mapos continued
to call to it in a low tono, and she
made the fox listen so long that it
took twice tho time to oat that it did
tho day boforo.
The fox was on hand behind tho
hen house tho next morning, and
Mrs. Mapos throw some raw fresh
beef over tho fenco to it. Sho called:
“Hero, foxoy! Here, foxoy!” to it a
number of times and tho fox had got
so used to her voico by that time
that it didn't take any tiino to listen
and ran across tho field tho moment
it had finished eating. Within a
week tho fox became so tame and
confiding that it took inoat from Mrs.
Mapos’ hand between tho piexots,
coming toward hor when she sang
out: “Here, foxoy! Here, foxey!”
Mrs. Mapos’ wild pot lias got fat, but
it still pomes around every morning
to lie fed, and the kind-hearted
woman won’t allow anyone to
burm it
One morning Mrs. Mopes wasn't
feeling very well, so Mr. Mopes went
out to feed the fox. It took to its
legs when ho throw tho meat over
tho foneo and it didn’t return until
the following morning, when Mrs.
Mapes talked to it a few minutes and
got it to lick lior hand. Then she
fed it, und sinco that tiino she hasn't
permitted uny of tho fuiuily to go
near it.

GLOVE ETIQUETTE.
How Custom Vary la UURirsat Com
tries.
The etiquette with regard to the
wearing of gloves vanes with almost
svery country, tho ono general rulo
that holds good In all, however, be
ing th*t men should never shake
bands without baring their right
band. To omit doing so, especially
when groeting or bidding adiou to m
woman, is just as bad form aa re
taining one’s cigar on tho occasion.
It is somewhat hard upon men to
axpeot them to throw away a good
;igur whon stoppod ond addressed on
the street or in tho park by ladles
with whom they aro acquainted, and
it is likowise troublesome, especially
on a warm day, to have to remove «“
tight-fitting glovo from tho right
band. But thuso aro tho penalties
of being popular with women, and
failure to conform to those elemen
tary rulos of courtesy indicates bad
breeding. Gloves should bo worn,
not so much as an article of conven
tional dross as for the protection of
tho hands, and it is amusing to soo
people taking far moro care to pre
serve their gloves at the expense of
thoir hands than thoir hands at the
a.tpfliiso of tho gloves.
In Belgium, which may bo regarded
is tho country whore tho finest
gloves aro made, ttio king distin
guishes himself by never wearing
gloves, not even when in full uniform
luring tho coldest weather. Strict
on tho subject of etiquette, he, how
aver, insists that his gontlomon-in
wuiting and aid do-camp Bliould be
irreproachably gloved. The majority
of tho members of tho Nobles’ club
and othor similar institutions at
Brussels follow tho king’s oxamplo
and go ungloved.
In England, on tho othor hand, tho
prince of Wales is invariably gloved,
and oxtreraoly well glovod at that.
He wears gloves whenever ho stirs
out of tho houso, and in tho ovonlng,
nt tho theater or at private enter
tainment!*, his hands arc always en
veloped in well-cut, singlo-button,
pearl-gray kids. Ho retains his glovo
when shaking hands, but tho person
whom ho thus greots is expected to
bare his hand boforo extending it~

In tho middle ages the etiquette
with regard to gloves was far more
stringent than it is at present. For
instanco, no ono was permitted to
enter a church wearing gloves, it be
ing considered as much out of place
us it nowadays would bo to remain
in any t acred edifice with a hat on.
Nor were tho groat officers of tho
royal and imporial courts permitted
to wear gloves whilo fulfilling their
official duties. It was forbidden in
Franco for tho coaclimon and greotnd
to enter the royal rtablos without
previously removing the gloves frctu
thoir hands.
Curiously enough, gloves wont out
of fashion almost entirely during the
latter portion of tho eighteenth cen
tury, and only reappeared after the
groat French revolution 100 years
ago. Tho first gloves that
were over heard of are thoso men
tioned in tho history of tho Roman
war against tho Gauls. The latter,
we aro told, had thoir hand enveloped
in coverings made of tho skins of
animals in order to presorvo them
from tho cold.
Ono of the peculiar features of the
madness-cf tho ill-fated cx-Kmpres*
Charlotto, of Mexico, is that she re
quires a frosh pair of pearl-gray,
two-buttoned kid gloves on rising
evory morning throughout the year.
If by any mishap there is no fresh
pair at bund, and nn attempt is made
to furnish her with gloves that aro
not entirely new, her insanity as
sumes for tho moment a violent form
and continues until sho is appeased
by a frosh pair.
