Last year the port of Buffalo had received up to May 31, 31,657,596 bushels of grain. Up to May 20 of this year the receipts have been 694,300 bushels. Shippers here say that the effects of the tie-up of lake commerce due to the strike or dered by the masters' 'and pilots' as sociation and the decision of the lake carriers' association to suspend all lake traffic until a settlement is reach ed will be more disastrous than the ef fects of the' great anthracite ; coal strike. The great water highway of trade between the. west and the east is practically closed. . ; The smoke of a lumber craft or a tramp steamer is occasionally seen on the lakes, but that is all. No figures are available showing the falling off of ore shipments, but the same propor tionate decrease prevails. It is esti mated that there are in this port 150, 000 tons coal on board of vessels un able to sail on account of the tie-up. A number of grain vessels which have arrived here have not been unloaded beacuse of a strike of monthly men in the elevators and consequently can not even enter into the lumber carry ing business. .

Searching for Weal thy Mine Owner Disappeared About Two WeeKs Ago He Had More Than $3,000 in Bills When Last Seen in Hotel Where He Paid His Bill. NVw York, May 21. Friends cf Francis 7. Hennessey, a wealthy mine owner with extensive interests m Mexico and well known in Chicago and San Francisco report his disnpear auce in this city May 4. They have been conducting u quiet search aided by the police here and in New: Jersey but absolutely no trace has been found of the man after he paid las bill at a Broadway hotel.' It is known that he had more thai $3,000 in his possession at that time. ? Mr Hennessey came from Mexico via Chicago, where his family lives, in the latter part of April. HU errand here was to investigate; a cyanide pro cess for the extraction of gold. The plant was located in a New Jersey town "just -across the Hudson" from Nf.- York. ' - : V; On May 4 he paid his bill at the hQ tel and left a letter there to be called for by an old friend living at Leonia, Nv J., saying that after investigating the cyanide plant he would, go to Le-y onia and remain there until May 14 when he intended Railing for Vera Cruz. Hennessey failed to appear at Leonia and did not sail or Mexico. No trace of his whereabouts in' New Jersey could be found and letters to his son at 3,300 Union avenue, Chi cago, brought the information that nothing , had been heard from him there since May 4. Fears of foul play are -now felt. , ? LOOK AFTER THE BOYS. Parents Should Not Allow Them to Despoil Gardens. Tl he arrest of a few vouncrsters to day ror entering gardens and damag ing .flowers should be a warning1 to parents who take no stock in where their children spend their spare mo ments. At this season . of the year children do considerable damage with out; knowing that they ; are liable to the owners If they want to take action against them and unless parents edu cate their children? as far ,assucli a l.hing is possible with the youthful mind, up to the risks they are running when they enter upon private property boys and girJs, too, , run big risks of feettins into trouble, for the law is plain on ; such questions and in older to punish the offenders, ; you do not have to run half a mile after them. All that is necessary is to secure their names and the evidence and the pros ecuting attorney will, do the rest. : It is a pity to see children of ten or twelve years of age occupying cells in the police station with the hardest kind of criminals, but if their parents or guardians neglect to keep track of them others will do it as a matter of self protection and as a consequence youths that are given full swing in variably wind up in the cooler. It is true that such a thing might happen even though the parents bestowed great care upon him, but such cases are rare. Chief Egan said this after noon that the next batch of boys brought in for annoying people will have to go before the court". What oc curred today was "a small affair, but such things open up the way to worse conduct and their parents realize for the first time that they did not use the rod in time to prevent serious trou- TAKEN OUT OF HISTORY.

The Master Builders' association of Waterbury mean business with refer ence to the open shop and are bound to make it go no matter how long they have to wait for the right kind of help. The strike was declared a few week's ago and not being able to get together the bosses finally conclud ed to burn the bridges between them and the union and go in for an open shop. As a result of this, almost all the local carpenters have secured posi tions out of towrn and now the employ ers say that thereis room" in, Water bury for four hundred carpenters at yoood wages and. steady work' without union 'interference. As many of the old hands as see fit to return will be taken on and tJe places of others will be filled as soon as possible. Tho bosses talk' as if they felt pleased to know that they are no longer subject to the union rules and hint that more than half the hands are delighted to be at liberty to dispose pf their iabor at a price to suit themselves. . The men are taking things easy. One man, a stranger, went to work on a building this morning, but he hadn't been there long when he quit. Tho men say i t at he dropped it when ho learned what was up. Fifteen ;iore tytrpenters will leave here v Monday moridng. This will be pi-actfcally all the men available for out of town pur poses.' Negotiations are under way between the union and the Torrlngton Building Co to have :. the men o to work on the Manville shop at the cor ner of Dublin and Bast Main street, and if 'this happens every joiner con nected with the union who d es not care to leave home 'will have all he can swing to. Things are moving along slowly in the building line, but the contractors claim that from now on additional help will be added from day to day until ti.ty havo ull tney can handle. It Is going tq be a fair test of whether men want unions or not. If the join ers prefer to deal directly .with the bosses they will have a chance to do so without let or .hindrance and on the other hand if they -make up their minds not to work unless the -"unions win, the will have an oportunity to wait and see what turn things, will take. One good feature of the strike Is that there is, no likelihood of any disorder and so long as the public peace is maintained it cannot ; be charged that either party to the contest is exceeding their rights. It is expected thatnext week will develop something new, in the indus trial line in Waterbury so far as out side work is concerned. The Carpen ters' and Joiners' union ' declared a strike three weeks ago 'and nowr the employers have an opi shop. This, so the contractors, state, leaves an opening for four hundred carpenters who want steady work at good wages without union interference. Many think that the bosses will experience no trouble in securing lots of compe tent men to accept positions here and unless some of the employers are very much mistaken a whole new working force will be on In the carpenter and joiner business In Waterbury within the next two weeks. f RAIDING FLOWER BEDS. Three Boys Taken in by Officer Cav anaugh This Horning. Bright and early this morning a raid was made. . It was not, on a pool room or a gambling joint," for 'tis said that Waterbury does not possess any of these joints now. Neither drd the police, take part in them. The raid was made upon a number of flower beds on Grove street, First' avenue and other avenues in that district, and the raiders were ; three small boys, who were not old enough or sufficient ly experienced to know that it is dan gerous' to do such things in daylight. The boys, who range from 12 to 3 5 years of age, had paid visits to several flower beds, had plucked several lilac bushes and had destroyed one or two of the flower beds when some person sent a telephone message to the police station. Officer Cavanaugh in plain clothes was sent to arrest the trio. He was on the way to the scene of the thefts when he saw the three boys with their arms full of flowers com ing down Central' 'avenue. He waited. The boys walked along until they reached the green. There they sat down. While they were' discussing the success" of their raid Officer Cav anaugh approached in the rear and had the -boys safely secured in his arms before they knew what, wa's up. The boys ai-e Patrick Mahaney, James Connor and Dennis Leary. They, were locked up on the charge of steal ing flowers . , ' If the police should arrest ft few more persons .Xho make a - habit of raiding flower beds they will earn the gratitude of a large number of people.

There were several wagers placed at 4 to 3 in favor of Yale, but such bets foundx acceptance. From the Harvard standpoint the situ ation was not so favorable: as it might have been' owing to the slight injuries received by several of their runners. If records were to be broken it was felt 'that they wrould occur in the shot put and pole vault, the notable prepar atory work of Lemoyne of Harvard and Glass of. Yale, in putting the shot, and of McLanahan of Yale in the pole vault being the foundation for this be lief. ", Among the other well known track men .to compete were Captain Clapp of the Yale team, the intercol legiate champion hurdler, and W. A.
