A LAKE CRUISE.
A Rock Islander Who is Having a
Tlit Yacht Arg and Her Present
r(eis!r- Michts unt Ex
Iierience nft Ienoha
Off Kenosha, July 2. The Argo is
enrolled in the American Yacht List as a
center-board schooner yacht, tonnage
14.82. length 50 feef, beam 15, draws four
feet eight inches, her code being K. D. G.
B. By means of this she would be
recognized in any part of the world. She
was built in Bath, Maine, for ocean sail
ing, and was brought to the lake via the
St. Lawrence and Wellund canal. The
Argo has been owned by Rev. Dr. Leffing
well, proprietor of the Living Church,
for five years and the good doctor as a
quasi commodore, deligtus to afford his
friends the pleasure of an outing on Lake
Michigan year by year when he is re
leased from the pressure of duty bv the
closing of Saint Mary's school at Knox
ville, 111., ef which he has been provincial
for nearly 25 years.
The Argo carries a sailing master, one
sailor and a steward, and has cabin ac
commodations for four, with ample
room on board for the storage of every
thing necessary for the comfort of the
inner and outer man. The sailing mas
ter and sailor are Norwegians; the stew
ard is a Greek, and the facility with
which he can prepare a first-class dinner
is a marvel to landsmen . The larder
seems to be provided with everything
which a first class hotel could furnish,
even water cress coming from o2 the ice
with all thecrispness of a morning gath
ering. The present occupants of the
Argo's cabin are the good doctor, his
two sons and your humble servant, and
everything is thought of and provided.for
the comfort of everyone.
We sailed from Chicago on Wednes
day noon, with fair wind but light, and
the fi-bt day andnihtout was the perfec
tion of comfort and luxury. With an
abundance of reading matter of every
description and plenty of ice, the voy
age promises every enjoyment.
Our objective point is Old Mission,
Mich., where Dr. LeCingwell has a sum
mer cottage, and where we expect to find
the other members of the family. In the
meantime we may touch at Milwaukee,
Sheboygan and the alanitoes. I am writ
ing in the early morning off Kenosha
with breakfast ' sizzling" in our eats.

of the way, reaching LeClaire about a

or at least price considerably above the
average. Vhe plan is unfolded in a circu
lar of ailv.ee issued through accredited
official channels to all members of farm
ers' organizations in the United States.
It suggests a great combination of the
6,000,000 it ember of farmers' organiza
tions, and Las the relative importance and
force of an official order for a strike among
the 1,000,003 members of the Federation of
Labor, or the 500,000 members of the
Knights of Labor.
YTl o It Will Be Sent To.
The circular, which is presumed to be a
a secret document, is now ready for mail
ing; and it will be sent to the 2,000,000
members of the Farmer's Alliance and In
dustrial Ur ion, the 1,000,000 members of
the colored Xational Farmers' Alliance,

Why the Scheme Was Devised.
The farn ers' organizations iow ap
parently fd'l in a position to make de
mands ralct.Inted to yield pecuniary prof
its to the agricultural classes, and they
propose to legin vrith a gigantic combina
tion in whe! t. Impressed by the failure
of the Butterworth option bill and other
measures to prevent trading in futures on
farm prod icts the farmers are now,
through tin ir official advisers, at least,
proposing to "go on a strike"' for higher
prices. Legislation is declared too slow
and inefTeotijal, and as the conditions cf
the crop and the market appear auspicious
the produces who are organized hope to
form a combination that will result in
profit to all lgricultorists.
1 nil of Statistics and Logic.
The official appeal, which has been already
prepared for mailing to more than a mill
ion addresses will le sent at once. The ap
peal is rather a vigorous document and
gives evidence of careful preparation. It
bristles with statistics and logic calculat
ed 'to fire th; agrienltural heart and ap
peal to his pocket book, and suggestive of
summary revenge upon the speculators
who are addicted to the habit of "making
a market fo-the farmers to sell on." A
pot of $100,0.10,000 is hung up and the
farmers are shown how they can get it
and as much more besides and "split it
up" between them.
A B g Chance This Year.
The circular closes as follows: fcYou can
not afford to lose the chance that this year
offers you. Don't get excited, even if
prices go far 'bo-e those indicated. This
year it is easy for the farmer to protect his
interest. Next yew we will be better pre
pared to meet any attempt at manipulat
ing, priefs". Vou can fully rely on the fig
ures and fact ; as given above and must
not mind the doings of the speculators.
Let them seil wheat promises ai 10 cents a
bushel; that :ias nothing te do with real
grain. Speci lators have sold more than
your surplus crop already at about hS
cents. What business have they to do
A Warning Against the Speculators.
'Will you sanction their actions and,
so to say, make them your agents by de
livering your grain at prices made by
them without even consulting you? They
have nothing to deliver, and a few weeks'
patience on your part will make an end of
this swindle forever. When the wheat
gamblers, who have already contracted
whole crops, iiear of a determination on
your part to I old your grain for a higher
price than tht y have sold it for it is likely
that they will make desperate efforts to
further depress prices for the purpose of
Will Corner the Board of Trade Men.
"This must not affect you in the least,
for if you hear that a man has sold your
horse or cow und has to deliver it at a cer
tain time it i.-. your luck, because he has
to come to you first and make his bargain
and you will know what to charge him.
If the specula or sells your wheat for you
without cons llting you, it is the same
thing. Let k: m do so aud be thankful to
him, for he will come soon enough to
make his bargain with you, and as he has
not asked your advice or consent in re
gard to price you are not under obliga
tion to sell yo ir grain below real value."

A California. Desperado Killed After
Committing Wanton Murder.
Sax Fraxcisco, Julys. A tragedy re
sulting in the death of two men and the
wounding of a policeman occurred yester
day. A year ago Moriano Sota, a wood
chopper, and one of the most desperate
characters in the state, out and fearfully
wounded his wife and fted to parts un
known. The woman recovered, and a few
months ago opened a boarding house. Her
lodgers were Mexicans and mostly wood
choppers. Yesterday morning Soto re
turned to the city, and called at the house.
His wife saw him in time to escape through
the back door. Soto entered the rear of
the house, where he saw a Mexican in a
room, and fired a shot at him, but with
Shoots a Man Through the Heart.
The Mexican escaped by a window.
Soto then went to another room in the
front of the house, apparently looking for
his wife, with the smoking pistol iu his
hand. A longer named Xicholas Smith
was in the room holding the door. . oto
fired, through the door shooting Smith
through the heart. The desperado tnen
started down the street with a pistol in
each hand. Officers Edwards and Mona-
hau started after the murderer. hen
within half a block of him he opened fire
on the officers. After many shots had
been exchanged Soto ran into small
shanty, bolted the door and crawled under
The Murderer Riddled with Bullets.
Officer Edwards had exhausted his am
munition by this time, and was wounded
in the aani. He secured a rifle from a
house near by and shot through the door
of the shanty and under the bed. Soto
returned the fire for some time, but final
ly shouted that he would surrender. He
was dragged from under the bed and
found to have been riddled with bullets.
He died in a few minutes. The officer's
injury is not severe.

LINCOLN AND HAMLIN.
A Philadelphia Newspaper Statement
Controverted by Colonel Micolay.
Washington, July 8. Colonel Xicolay,
at one time one of the private secretaries
of President Lincoln, sent the following
telegram to the widow of the lat ex-Vice
President Hamlin yesterday: The editor
ial statement from the Philadelphia
Times printed in this morning's news dis
patches, to the effect that President
Lincoln opposed Mr. Hamlin's recomina
t ion as vice president, is entirely errone
ous. Mr. Lincoln's personal feelings, on
the contrary, were for Mr. Hamlin's re
nomination, as he confidently- expressed
to me, but he persistently withheld auy
opinion calculated to influence the conven
tion for or against any candidate, and I
have his written word to that effect.
