Heavy Tax For the Society.'
. St Petersburg, " Oct 1 29.' The . gov
ernment, for the second time within
two months, has imposed a' special tax

of time for which the license was
granted; and now railway tickets are
taxed five, kopecks when the fare is
two , roubles or upwards. It is esti
mated that the ticket tax will yield
$11!5,000 yearly and that on licenses

idea of Imposing the taxes.

Escaping Gas Caused Death 'of a Well
Known Writer.
Chicago, Oct SO Mrs Anna L.
Adamson ,a well-known writer, daugh
ter of the late E. J. Iluling, editor and
publisher of the Saratoga Sentinel,
was found dead in her room at the
home of her sister, Miss Catherine
A. Iluling. The gas had been escap
ing from an open jet. for some time.
The door was slightly ajar and this
fact leads Miss Iluling to believe that
her sister's death was accidental. For
a number of years 'Mrs Adamson was
actively engaged in newspaper and
literary work.

Louis RalTel appeared before the
board and stated that J. J. Macauley
of Canal street had not complied with
the order of the board to abate a nui
sance caused by a smokestack on his

L. H. Toucey & Co, calling attention
to the condition of Great brook in the

where it Is open. The matter was re
ferred to the uldermen. accompanied
by a recommendation that the work
be ordered done.
Commissioner Cross, father of the
chicken ordinance, wanted to amend
the draft by making the distance coops
must be from the houses thirty feet
instead of fifty feet. Commissioner
Finn did not see any use fooling with
the thing at all. so long as no one
was finding fault about the chickens
or the coops. Nothing was done in
the premises, except to table the mat
ter, where It is likelv to remain until
many a chicken that is now full of
animation will have felt the keen
edge of the axe.

A PROCLAMATION.
It has pleased Almighty God to
bring our nation in safety and honor
through another year. The works of
religion and charity have everywhere
been manifest. Our country through
all its extent has been blessed with
abundant harvest. Labor and the
great industries have prospered be
yond all precedent. Our commerce
lias spread over the world. Our pow
er and influence in tne cause of free
dom and enlightenment have extend
ed over distant seas and lands. The
lives of our official representatives and
many of our people in China have been
marvelously preserved. We have been
generally exempt from pestilence and
other great calamities; and even the
tragic visitation which overwhelmed
the city of Galveston made evident
the sentiments of sympathy and Chris
tian charity by virtue of which we are
one united people.
Now, therefore. I. William McKin
ley, president of the United States, do
hereby appoint and set apart Thurs
day, the 29th of November next, to be
observed by all the people of the Unit
ed States at home or abroad, as a day
.of thanksgiving, and praise to Him
who holds the nation in the hollow of
His hand. I recommend that they
gather in their several places of wor
ship and devoutly give Him thanks
for the prosperity wherewith He has
endowed- us. for seed time and har
vest, for the valor, devotion and hu
manity of our armies and navy, and
for all His benefit to us as individuals
and as a nation, and that they humbly
pray for the continuance of His di
vine favor, for concord and amity with
other nations, and for righteousness
and peace in all our ways.
In witness whereof. I have hereun
to set my hand and caused the seal of
the Unifed States to be affixed. - Done
at the city of Washington this 29th
day of October, in the year of our
Lord one thousand nine hundred and
of the independence of the United
States, the one hundred and twenty
fifth. WILLIAM M'KINLEY.
