There was
one family of 10, including husband,
wife, children, uncle, aunt and cousin.
The Armenians, as a rule, were well
dressed, intelligent looking und did not
appear to have suffered any privations.
The refugees were met at Ellis island
by representatives of the Salvation
Army and ladies from the Women's
Christian Temperance Union, a repre
sentative of the Red Cross society and
several charitably disposed persons.
Upon their arrival at Ellis island, they
were grouped and photographed and
interviewed by representatives of the
Christian Herald.
A Protent Is Filed.
A protest from the residents and tax
payers of Hohokus county, N. J., was
presented to Dr. Senner, commissioner
of immigration at Ellis island, signed
by a committee consisting of Saul R,
Moffatt, Fred Shilling and Jonn Y.
Dater. This protest stated that for
some time past men and women dressed
in the uniform of the Salvation Army
have been engaged in a systematic beg
ging for the support and maintenance of
"hordes of Armenians, the same being
aliens and paupers, and we protest
against the said aliens and paupers be
ing scut into this community."
Another letter was from Rev. J. N.
Tromper, pastor of the Christian Re
form church at Ramseys, N. J., where
it is proposed to colonize the Armenian
refugees. Pastor Troinper says that he
has been requested by his congregation
^to extend the sympathies of his church
and congregation to the movement to
colonize the refugee.
General Booth-Tucker is expected at
the island this afternoon to speak in be
half of the refugees. At noon Dr. Sen
ner was not in a position to state wheth
er the 101" refugees would be admitted
to the country or sent back. He will re
serve his decision until he haw heard
both sides, and may posssbly refer the
matter to the secretary of the treasury.

ST. PAI'L, (Jet. 20.—The Commercial
club is gathering statistics about the
Trans-Mississippi and International ex
position, to be held in Omaha from
June to November, iblH, with a view to
giving Minnesota people reliable infor
mation pertaining to the manner and
extent to which the several Western
and Southern states will participate in
the big event.
Congress has pa-ssed a bill appropri
ating $200,000 for the goverment build
ing and exhibit, and at the coming ses
sion of congress the assurance is given
that an additional (800,000 will be ap
propriated, making a total United
States appropriation of fo00,000. This
showing contemplates the expenditure
of 92,000,000 on the exposition, which
does not include the large amounts to
be expended by holders of concessions,
privileges, etc.
The county of Douglas, in which
Omaha is situated, is expected to vote
$200,000 to the exitositiou. The State
of Nebraska will probably vote $800,000
additional. The Trnns-Missippi states
and territories will undoubtedly appro

representatio* of their various states.
The State of Minnesota, through its
commercial bodies and through the leg

Several Names Which May Re Sent to
the Tope for Approval.
Democratic Candidate Once More Vls'ts
the Entities Country.
TOLEDO, O., ^ct. 20.—The Buckeye
State, the home of his opponent, is
again visited by William J. Bryan. At
4 :25 o'clock, special car Idler, bearing
the party, was pulled out of Detroit,
and at 6 :30 the city of Toledo, which
some weeks ago gave the nominee such
a hearty welcome, was reached. Here
a good crowd had gathered about the
depot and outside the gates and chered
the nominee. At 7 o'clock he made a
three-minute platform speech at Per
rysbnrg, and another at Deshler a half
hour later. Short speeches of less than
five minutes were made by him at Ot
tawa and Leipsic Junction. The
train was in charge of Daniel
McConville, chairman of the speakers
national bureau, and with him were
W. W. Durbin, chairman of state cen
tral committee, and Grant Holliday, a
member of the state executive commit
tee. At Toledo, Mr. Bryan stepped out
on the back platform and acknowledged
the cheers and applause given him by a
few appropriate words. The speeches
at Perrysburg, Deshler, Ottawa and
Leipsic Junction, were the same gen
eral tenor as those usually mane by Mr
Bryan in his short tail-end platform
speeches. Shortly after 9 o'clock, the
first speech of any length was made at
Lima, where for 30 minutes the nomi
nee expounded free silver doctrines.
Experts Coming Home.
THE HAGUE, Oct. 20.—Professor Burr
and Dr. Kean, the experts of the United
States Venezuelan commission, who
have been in Europe some time study
ing the archives of London, Madrid and
the Hague for the purpose of assisting
the commission in its investigation of
the boundary dispute between Venezu
ela aud iireat lintain, have completed
their work. Professor Burr will sail
from Liverpool for New York 011
Wednesday, and Dr. Kean will leave
later in the week.
Oct. 20.—The name of
Rev. Father Conaty, pastor of the Cath
olic summer school of philosophy at
Plattsburg, N. Y., is -prominently men
tioned for the place of rector of the
Catholic university, and the belief pre
vails in well informed circles that his
will be one of the names submitted to
the pope. Father Conaty is a man of
intellectual tendeucies, and his activity
has brought the Catholic summer school
into marked prominence. He is at
tached to the Springfield, Maw., dio
cese. The friends of Dr. Garrigan,
vice rector of the university, are ex
pecting that his name wiU be ineladed
in those sent to the pop*. They say he
has given seven hard years of work
to the university, leaving one of
the best parishes in New Eng
land to take the vice rectorship. It
is urged that he should be considered
before anyone from outside, who have
no special knowledge of the University,
are brought here. Dr. Edward P.
Allen, head of the Mount St. .Mary's
seminary, Emmetsburg, Md., is men
tioned, as he is the head of the only
large college conducted by the secular
branch of the Catholic clergy. .The
heads of the large colleges controlled
by the orders, including Fordham,
Georgetown and Notre Dame are con
sidered inelgible, as the university is
distinctly a secular institution.

Deadly Kpidemic of Diphtheria in Intra
tbe Work of the Animals.
WEBSTER CITY, In., Oct. 20.—Rabbits
havd caused an epidemic of diphtheria
in the eastern part of the county, and
it has spread to Dows, Iowa
Jewell Junction and Alden. No fewer

annually broken out in the immediate
vicinity of Tybithra Lutheran church,

the conclusion that the timid animals
have planted the germs of the disease
which spread among the children. The
church will be burned.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20.—A. M. Wil
cox of Washington, statistician agent
of the United States commission of
fishes and fisheries, has arrived from
Oregon and Washington for the purpose
of preparing a statistical report of the
fishing industry
the coasts. He has
been ^illustriously engaged in the pur
suit 01 his investigations and inquiries
in Oregou aud Washington for several
weeks, aud will devote the next month
or two to tho work of gathering data
concerning the fish and fisheries of Cal
ifornia. Mr. Wilcox s:sid that for sev
eral years past the ti-li vie- of th- We4
xast of the United States had been
arrowing in importance to such an ex
tent that the Unit-d States lili com
mission had deemed it udvisable and
highly important fh:it an elaborate and
accurate report of the status of the
fishing industry here be obtained
•md he has been sent ln^re for
that purpose. s report is calculated
to prove a great benefit to the commer
cial iihing industries of the coast, for
reason that it will show the neces
ity for more liatcherie-i and a more
thorough stocking of the streams and
inland waters of the state. lie says it
is extremely probable that the United
States fish commission will decide to
establish half a dozen new hatcheries in
California before long, for the reason
that the fishing industry of the Pacific
coast states, including Alaska, has
grown so that it ranks n xt to that of
the New England i.n.l Middle Atlantic
states iu extent and importance, while
the value of the fishery products is
greater than in the South Atlantic,
