The Canadian Forces Successful s« Far as Heard From, England and Russia Still Keeping AWUK Nights—The French and Egypt—Uncle Sam Adds to the Interest by A Movement in Panama. "WINNIPEG, April !27.—The opening battle the campaign against Kiel has been fought and WOJ. Gen. Middleton. with ail idvauco detachment on the right bank of -he Saskatchewan, encountered th rebels Friday fifteen miles souta of liatjcho'S Crossing. Two hundred Indian and French half-breeds lay in am bush in a ravine, and opened a beavy lira 3N the troops. GON. Miduletou at ouco tie ployed the troops in skirmishing or lor. Battery A could not at first fe.*l tne enemy with their guns, so gooJ. was h_ir sholtjr. Eventually, however, the battery got into a better position and rained A raking Qr« among them. Two houses in wiiieli the rebel reserves were secluded were demolished. The rebels next made a dash and fought the Nineteenth battalion at 2LO3E quarters, but t'ue severe fire from the left wing forced the rebels to again retire. The fight was carried on in an Indian style by the rebels, who were always either con cealed behind trees or in the bush. Their lira was hot and very effective. Capt. Clark, with the sharpshooters, first advanced in skirmishing order after the icouts signaled danger, anl closely follow ing were the Toronto school of infantry, the latter taking the right flank. The conflict now became general and very severe. The Indians were exceedingly combative, AND the war-whoop could be heard distinctly some distance. Theyrallied time an 1 again, keeping up an incessant Ore for fully an hour. Subsequently the fire slackened on the part of the enemy, but was again resumed shortly aftor noon. The prairie was sot on fire as a result of the bat tle, but a heavy rain sot in soon after. The rebels were finally driven from their ambush by the hard firing of the volun teers. Gen. Middleton had a close call, having been shot through the hat Gen. Mildleton's loss was three killed and fifty wounded. The half-breed loss is not known, but it is sertainly heavy. The rebels will now bo rapidly pushed, and fought whenever they make a stand. A dispatch from the battle fiell says: "It was evident that if the rebels had been all armed, or, had artillery, the day would have gone hard with us." At the point where the fight took place there are two low bluffs, from which the rebels fired their first shots. Between thesa bluffs, which are about 500 yards apart, is a piece of level and open prairio that extends back about 1,000 yards, across which runs a deep ravine, with timber in the bottom run ning back in places apparently for a mile. On the west side, about in the center, stand two log houses and straw-stacks. The loss of the Canadian forces is ten or twelve killed and forty or fifty wounded. As far AS could be seen, the enemy left no dead on the field, though twenty-five of them were shot and about a dczsn captured. The rebels seem to be composed of about an equal number of half-breeds and Indians, in all not more than 200, and are supposed to be under the command of Gabriel Dumont. RUSSIA AND ENGLAND. Both Countries Continue to Halt on tho Brink of War. LONDON, April 27.—The cabinet ministers were hurriedly and somewhat unexpectedly summoned to a meeting Saturday morning. It was rumored that alarming news had been received regarding the movements of Gen. Komaroff in Afghanistan. The cabinet council lasted three hours and a half. It is rumored that the course to be pursued by the ministry in the house of commons on Monday, when the debate on the vote of credit comes up, was de cided on, but nothing definito concerning the decision reachod has transpire!. Re ports from St. Petersburg state that Russflt is largely augmenting tho number oc the subaltern officers in all^her regiments, and that other preparations for war are progress ing with increased vigor. The excitement Saturday was intense. The ameer's treachery is more than sus pected, and France's sudden display of firm ness in regard to Egypt had given the impression that the Freycinet gov ernment had effected some SORT of an understanding with Russia. England's isolation was never more complete. There is no despondency, how ever, either among the ministry or people. It is reported that Earl Granville has tele» graphed instructions to Sir Evelyn ^Baring, the British minister to Egypt, to support Nubar Pasha to the utmost extremity in hi3 refusal to make apologies or explanation for the suppression of The Bosphore Egyptien. Nubar Pasha shows no signs of yielding to the demands of France. The French transports, with 4,000 troops on board, which are now in the Suez canal, have been ordered to remain there for the present. The French Mediterranean fleet has arrived at Corfu. British transports at Woolwich have been ordered to load, until otherwise instructed, all their war stores for India instead of Suakim. The government has ordered the imme diate construction of forty gunboats. These new gunboats are to be according to the Admiralty specifications of a pew typo of naval architacture. They will carry light shell guns for the pur pose of destroying torpedo boats and have a coal stowage capacity which will render them capable of steaming 1,000 miles with out recoaling. In addition to tho charter of the steamers already announced, tlie govern ment has also chartered the steamer En ergia. The Energia will be converted into an armed cruiser. A. St. Petersburg special dispatch to The Standard says that negotiations continue between tho Russian and the British govern ments. The frontier question presents no serious difficulty, but the Penjdeh affair de lays the meeting of the boundary commis sion, headfcd by M. Lessar for Russia, and Sir Peter Lumsden for Great Britain. Russia, says ing to doors,bird cages, coffins, shrouds,etc. etc.lurhe keeps the best assort ment in town and a goodquallty of goods the dispatch, is will cede Zulficar ST in return for Penjdeh. That accomplished, tho boundary commis sion could probably arrange for the with, drawal of both Russian and Afghan troopi from the disputed zone. This solution oi the difficulty, it is suggested, however, is only possible if England foregoes her claim for satisfaction from Russia for the Penjdeh affair. Satisfaction, continues the dispatch, Russia will not give, CAIBO, April 27.—The French charge de affaires had not left his post up to noon.Satc urday. PARIS, April 27.—The French government has decided to issue its late note to Nubai Pasha, the Egyptian minister of foreign af fairs in regard to the Bosphore Egyptian af fair to tfe* powers ia the form of a This is the note containing the threat of :ontrol of Egyptian financial affairs. of WAKSAW, April 27.—Gen. Gourko, gov ernor goneral of Poland, has been ordered by (ho CZAR to prepare a plan for a cam pni in Afghanistan. It is believed here that in case of war he will have supreme command of tho Russian forces. ST. PETEKSHCHG, April 27.—Tho czar has decided to go to Moscow at once. Tho Garnet anil Strytax. NORFOLK, Va., April 23.—An officer of (he British man-of-war Garnet said Friday tUat wiion the British and Russian vessels caiao into port here war was daily ex oted, and tho men on both ships looked for an engagement If war should be de clared the ship leaving first would be al lowed twenty-four hours start. The other ship would then follow, and when nine miles from shore on tho high seas the en gagement would probably take place. Italy 2«ot in Alliance with England. NEW YORK, April 27.—The Herald's Rome correspondent denies, on authority, that Italy wili occupy Saakim, an I states that in conversation Signor Manani, minister of foreign flairs, expressed satisfaction that Italy had not signed an alliance with Eng land, v. i.o was now in such grave embarrass ment. A Letter from the Czar. NEW YORK, April 27.—A Berlin dispatch tatos that the Emperor "William, on Wednesday, received a letter from the czar, stilting that war see mo I to him inevitable. The euspjror is said to be much depressed by this information. THE MARINES IN ACTIVE SERVICE. United STA'EI Troops Talse I'ossession of PANAMA—Aizpnra Arrested. NEW YORK, April 27.—A special cable from Panama announces that the American troop--, 5JO trong, have entered the city and occu[ IAA all the American property with out resistance. Aizpura, the rebel leader, and three of his staff were arrested, and so completely were thoy ^sur prised that, when thoy realized their situation they went almost wild with RA RE. His rebel followers threaten to burn the city if he is not releasad. A disaster similar to that at Chlon was un doubtediy prevented by the timely action of t-'.:C American troop.-. RE-enforcements of B'JO men have arrived at Colon, and Com mander MeCalla has issued a proclamation taking charge of the city. There was some iiriag, and one rebel was killed and three wounded. Tho French consul issued a vio lent protect against the action of the Amer icans. In the evening it was found neces sary to clear the plaza by a Gatling gun. One rebel was killed and three wounded. Order has now been restored. Another Ship Wanted. PCRTF.MOUTH, N. H., April 27.—Commo dore Philip C. Johnson, commanding the navy-yard here, has received a dispatch from Secretary Whitney, asking for an esti mate of tae time and money required to fit tho United States ship Vandalia, now lying at that yard and aut of commission for sev eral years, for immediate service. The Vandalia is a second-rate screw steamer of 2,100 tons, and carries eight guns. WASHINGTON CITY, April 27.—Secretary Whitney has received an official report of the soiziii'J of Colon by the marines, and has sent instructions to Rear Admiral Jouett, which HA declines to make public. THE GAS WELL RIOT. SIHtou Weston Sentenced to Five Years in the Penitentiary. RITTSBURG, Pa., A ril 27.—Judge Bayley Saturday refused the motion for a new trial in tho case against Milton Weston, tho wealthy farmer of the Mur raysville gas well riot Many letcers respecting the character of defend ant, from business men of Chicago and other eitioj were read. Counsel asked for the lowest possible sentence, but the judge replied that as the defendant had stood so well with his fellows, it proved that he had sinned against light and knowl edge, and, if anything, the sen tence should weigh the heavier, He was then santenced to pay a flue of 6 cents, the cost of prosecution, and undergo coiiiin'jmenfc in tho western penitentiary for five years. Weston's attorneys will goto Philadelphia to apply to the supreme court for a special allocutar admitting Weston to bail, pending a hearing before that body. Will Keiley Go to Russia? WASHINGTON CITY, April 27.—A local paper contains the following: RICHMOND, Va., April 24 The Hon. A. M. Kciloy, minister to Italy, left here to night for Washington, and his family left hero to-day for New York by Old Dominion steam-hip. It was Mr. Keiley's purpose to sail from New York to Havre on the steamer Normandio Wednesday next, but to-.uorrow Mr. Keiley will resign his posi tion as minister to Romo and will at once bo appointed minister plenipotentiary to Russia in place of Mr. Law'ton, of Georgia. Secretary Bayard, on being shown this di-.n: 'h, said: "I can tell you nothing about it." It is reported that John Kelly, of New York, is an applicant for the mission to Italy, with good prospects of obtaining in.

PLEUROPNEUMONIA IN ILLINOIS AND MISSOURI ATTRACTING ATTENTION. 1 Meeting Called by Illinois Cattlemen to Consider the Subject—The Outlook for Business—Crops in Kautsu and ELSEWHERE. SPRINGFIELD, Ills., April 37.—Tho follow ing call signed by a number of cattle breeders has just been issued: To THE CATTLE-BREEDERS OF ILLINOIS The undersigned deem it of the utmost im portauce that immediate steps be tak n to lire vent the further introduction and spread contagious diseases among tho domestic miiuals of tho state. Tho serious outbreak )f contagious pleuro-pneumonia in an ad joining state, and the infection in a single eounty thereof of over sixty herds, number :ng over 100, OUI) head of cattle, ind the increased danger of the spread of tho disease, make it ad ble that the stock-breeders of the state should join in JOME concerted move to devise adequate means to copo with this much dreaded piague, which threatens TODO' jtroy the cattle interest in this state, now valued at over JF.)0,000,000. The undersigned request that the cattle breeders and feeders of the state meet in con vention in tho city of Springfield on Thurs day, April 3D, 1885, at 10 o'clock a. m., to consider legislation and other matters cal culated to insure the safety of this extensive industry, upon which the prosperity of the state is so largely dependent. A me«.ing was held Friday afternoon in the agricultural department at the capitol, at which were exhibited portions of the lungs of cattlo deceased from plouro-pneu monia. Dr. Paaren, state veterinarian, dis sected the diseased portions and explained to the largo audience of legislators and cattle men present the origin and progress of the malady which is at present creating such apprehension throughout the country. An important bill was introduced in the senate on the subject of pleuro-pnoumonia, which authorizes the appointment by th9 governor of three state commissioners, whose duty it shall be to investigate all cases of contagious or infectious disease among domestic animals, and to use all proper means to exterminate and prevent tho spread of such disease. ST. LOUIS, April 2 —It was learned here Friday that Attornoy General Garland, after a furthor examination of the law on the subject, had reversed his decision em powering the commissioners of agriculture to purchase and slaughter all cattle affected with contagious diseases. As this im poses the burden of stamping out the disease on states or individuals, meet ings of persons interested were held to consider the matter. An appeal was sent Governor Marmaduke, asking him to call a special session of tho legislature. The gov ernor in his reply doss not reiu-e to call a special sossion. but says as the legislature failed to take action at its recent session the parties interested ought to subscribe suffi cient money to meet tho demand. He feels certain this monoy would le refunded by the stato. Tho effort made here to raise mouey to pay for cattle slaughtered in Cal loway county has practically failed. Bradstrect on Business. NEW YORK, April 27.—The warm weather of the last few days has encour aged retailers at the east to make renewed purchases. This they have been doing to a moderate extent, the buying being on small orders. At the west, farmers generally being busy with spring work, country deal ers have less incentive to go into the mar ket. Telegrams to Brads treat's present this view of the situation, although, as is also noted, there has been a better feeling in trade circles, based on the improvement in the weather, and, it must be confessed, on a widespread notion that a wax abroad is inevitable and that it will stimu late business in the United States. There is no better outlook in industrial lines. The volume of merchandiso moving, as per cur rent reports, continues about as last week. Leading freight line officials announce that tho total weight of freight moved since Jan. 1, both east and west, is not as heavy as in a liko portion of 1884. There were 19S failures in the United States during the last week, as compared with 19G in the preceding week, and with 164, 186, and 105, respectively, in the cor responding weeks of IS84, 1SS3, and 1883. About 85 per cent, wore those of small traders, whose capital was less than $5,000. Canada had twenty-one—an increase of two. News from tlio Wheat Fields. ATCHISON, Kan., April 27.—The state board of agriculture, in their March report, estimated the wheat crop at 1,000,000 acre3 in good condition. An average crop is from 13,000,000 to 15,000,000 bushels, hence our crop this year on that basis would be about that amount, but since that time reports hav« been received here which indioate that the crop will not pan out as well as estimated, and it is safe to say that the yield will NOT be more than 10,000,000 bushels ST. PAUL, April 2.— The Omaha road has received reports from over sixty stations on its lines in Minnesota and Wisconsin con cerning spring wheat and other grains. From them it appears that spring wheat is well along, although the season is at least a week late. The reports indicate that not withstanding war rumors there will not be much increased acreage of wheat, mauy of tho farmers, however, nearly doubling thoir acreage in flaxseed. In Wisconsin and southern Minnesota large numbers are also seeding land to timothy for stock AND dairy purposes. Foraker for Governor of Ohio Again. CINCINNATI, April 27.—The Washington correspondent of Tho Enquirer telegraphs, A prominent Coshocton county Republican, writing to a frieud in Washington, says: think that Brother Foraker will be the no'iiineo. If it was a question in this county between him and Nash (leaving out tho facl that Foraker ran bofore and failed througt no fault of his), I think Nash would carrj this county but, taking into consideration tho facts as they niv, 1 don't think then will bo much doubt of Foraker's nomination on the first ballot. Beatty has some of the fire. lira.
