A Kiiecial meeting of representatives of various lodges of Knights of the Maccabees of Detroit and vicinity was held to take action regarding the proposed special meeting of tho order in reference to the recent acts of Great Commander Boynton in declining to ap prove tho bonds of Great Record Keeper .Houghton of Orund Kaplds. Of the twenty -eight lodges in this city twenty six were represented and a dozen other towns and cities of Michigtui wore rcpre- seiiti-d by ilelegations. C oiniiiaiiiii r iMiynton's career as the oflieial huiid of the order was discnssi-d and as reportivl the sentiment was largely in favor of culling the pmoed sctei;il meeting to codify and revise the law gov erning the order so o to render the recent action of the great comnmmlcr impossible of recurrence. It is lielicvcd that resolu tions of Mssibly a more sw:vplng charac ter werj ud.ipti'd, but the delegates have thus far divulged nothing further tlinn the hIhivc retMirt.

Omaha, Oct. 27. The fact is made pub lic that the safety deposit vaults section of the O.-naha National bank has been rob bed, and in so dexterous a manner that no clue to the manner in which the work Was done is obtainable, large sums of money havo been taken from boxes in the vaults, and the exact amount of tho losses c in not be known until all have boon ex amined. The discovery wns made more than two weeks ago, and every precaution has been taken by tho bank officials to keep the matter a close socret. Chief of Police f5e.iv?y and one of his detectives hnvo been working industriously upon tho cose, and J. H. Millard, president of the Omaha National bank, has given tho larger share of his timo since the discov ery to an effort t-o unravel the mystery sur rounding the cose. Twelve Hnmlrrd In Gold Vanishes. The principal loser is William Glodish. Mr. Gladish lias lxvn the lessee of a box in the vaults of the Omaha National for a number of years. Last March be placed in his box the sum of $J,TJ0 in gold. On Oct. 5 ho discovered that nbont $1,200 of the amount was missing. Ho at onoe no tified Mr. Millard nnd tho investigation commenced. So fur, however, all efforts to discover the manner in which the money was lost have failed, and the bank authorities as well as the police, are ns much in the dark as ever. The hank offi cials place every reliance ujxin tho parties who hnve any connection with the man agement of t he vnults nud are thoroughly in the dark as to how the losses have oc curred.

Tho vaults oro under the management of a lady who is every way fitted for tho re sponsibility of the position she occupies. No shadow of suspicion exists that t he losses have occurred through her knowledge or connivance. The safety vaults are mod eled after the best system in the country and the private boxes are snrrounded with every safeguard the ingenuity of sci ence can devise, besides which the lessee has a password and no two individuals can have the same password. llank Good for the Money. It is suggested that a person not entitled to open any given box may secure posses sion of the keys surreptitiously. But the possession of the key alone will not enable a stranger to open a box. He must also give the private password. The bank offi cials or detectives offer no explanation more than the declaration that it is not due to tho carelessness of hank employes. All deposits are guaranteed by tho bank. "GALL" OF THE GREEN GOODS MAN. Be Sends a Circular to the Kansas City Chief of Police. Kaxsas Qjtt, Kan., Oct. 27.

The letter was accompanied by the usual "confidential circular" card of instructions and alleged newspaper clippings. The green goods men undonlrtcdly did not know that the chief now held the oflieial position at the head of the police depart ment. They stmt the letter to the firm of Swingley & Quarles, under which the chief and Justice of the Peace Swingley formerly conducted a livery business. Chief Quarles, however, intimates that tho groen goods men are taking this bold way of suggesting protection from the Kansas City, Kas., police board.

WHAT THE MERCHANTS SAY Recardlnn; the Condition of Business nod the Future Outlook. NEW York, Oct. 27. Bradstreet's ays: 'Merchants- interviewed in vari ous parts of the country report in some instances the .' condition of busi ness as not having realized anticipa tions and at other points that tho recent bright outlook for trade is modified. Such advices are based in part on the practical conclusion of fall trade and delays in de mand for holiday roods. Dealers in dry goods, clothing, groceries, shoes, hats and a few other lines have had relatively the more satisfactory volume of business, although in many instances fault has been found with the totals shipped. General trade continues checked throughout some portions of the regions supplied by Kansas City, St. Louis, Omaha, Minneapolis and St. Paul, duo to unseasonably warm weather. At tho south low prices for cotton continue togaf fect business unfavorably, many larger merchants being more cautious as to granting credits to interior merchants. Throughout a largo port ion of the region between Ohio and the northwest interior joblicrs will continue to carry small stocks throughout tho winter. Etstorn dry goods jobbers report only low nost goods moving, without any freedom, and tho outlook for a settlement of the Fall River strike less favorable. Domestic fleeces are depressed by free offerings of Australian wool at conces sions. The outlook for a war among tho coal roads is not so bright as late reports indicate, it being unlikely that the pro ducing and carrying companies will enter into an active antagonism until the re sults of the attempt to advance prices for Aoveniner with unrestricted mining are ascertained.

Some Farther Details of the Loesraof Prnp crty In brmka. Gonnox, Neb., Oct. 27. The facts about tho prairie fires' are reaching here and they tell a woeful tale. The fires broke out List Monday in the South Sand hills, aUiut fifty miles south of this place, and have burned already over a strip of conn try 100 miles In length by forty miles wide. The lire is burning in aneasterly direction. The flames burned all tho range slick and clean on tho Spade ranch, belonging to Richards & Cairne, and atiout 3,(KH) tons of bay, leaving almut 1,000 tons. This ranch has 7,tXK) bead of cattle and 175 head of horses and it will necessitate the moving of the whole outfit up to the Wbite river in South Dakota. The next ranch t-o burn was Stanbirds Bros, who lost all their hay, about 2,500 tons, and all of thier range; the ranch has 1,200 head of cattle. The next was Len Osborne's, burning all bis range and all his hay, about 4o0 tons, and his barn and outbuildings; this ranch was feeding about I0 head of cattle. Osborne will have to move his cattle at once, as he has no hay or range and no protection at all. Tho next was Miner"s ranch, burning all his hay, about 3J0 tons; feeding about 200 head of cattle. The fire was swept on by a heavy west ers wind, notwithstanding that thirty men were working like beavers to put it out. The next ranch to go was Wood ruff's, burning all his hay, about 400 tons, and all his range; tho ranch supported about 300 head of cattle. Woodruff also lost his brrns. sheds and corrals. Bough was next in line, and he lost all his hy, 600 tons, and all his range; had almut Vl head of cattle. The next was Mason's, burning him out of ubont 1.000 tons of hay. He was also the postmaster and had a store, carrying a stock of thousands of dollars with a very light or no insurance. He had 7l head of cattle. The next was Davis. He lost all of his hay 1.200 tons but none of his build ings; he has alxmt riuo head of cattle. This Is as far as the fire had got at noon. There are quite-a numlier of small ranches burned down o the Burlington and Mis souri. Samuel- Chestnut. Morev and Hewitt, J. H. Overton and Dan Hill are ine oniy men that were nut burned.
