Washington, Oct. 11.— The bureau of foreign commerce of the state department is just now busily engaged in the preparation for publication of the volume known as "Commercial Relation of the United States," embodying annual reports from United States consuls in every country in the world upon the trade conditions in their respective districts. Within the past three years the quality and the value or this annual publication to the business interests of the country have improved in aa astonishing degree, owing to careful selection of material, suggestions to consuls of Information likely to be desired, and the addition of a compendious and thorough review prepared by the chief of the bureau, setting out conclusions as to general trade tendencies that may bd ^partially drawn from the vast store f matter supplied by the consuls. Valuable Information for Many, The forthcoming volume is of larger scope even than its predecessors, and nstead of being little more than the Iry compilation of figures that it formerly was, the "Commercial Relations" 'or 1896-7 will preset a mass of in- f«rmation of such variety aa to be aluable and interesting not only to ;xportine'merchants, but to public men, to, manufacturers and to technical workers. From Hanover comes an account of the installation of an electric •ailway for handling heavy freight, suggestions for placing American tools in Germany, ajid tajk ^t an opening tor breakfast cereals. The consul at Barcelona reports upon the trade of ipain as affected by the Cuban war, upon the Spanish woman's aversion to tha bicycle and upon tariff and financial questions. Specimens of Its Contents. From nearby Santo Domingo comes a 'eport of railway development, of tariff changes and a comparison of European and American credit systems. The depressing effects of American competi- :ion upon the Swiss watch trade is described by the consul at Geneva, who ilso tells of the preference for American bicycles and of the growing- demand lor American canned goods, California, 'ruita and sole leather. The leather :rade is also treated by the consul at Bristol, a trade center, and he adds a chapter on bacon that should be interesting to hog-raisers and packers because of the technical hints upon grow- ng and curing for the English market. The consul at Coaticook throws out lome hints to American newspaper publishers as to the means of obtaining a sale for their publications in the Domin- .on. __ CULI.OM IS AT HOME AGAIN. Hits John Bull » Whack While Telling of His Trip to Europe. Washington, Oct. 11.— Senator Cul- om has returned from a two months' tour of Europe, and said he had enjoyed his vacation. He was particular- y pleased with the country in England and the mountain scenery in Switzer- .and. He made a short and hurried run through England, going as far north as Edinburgh, spent some time in London, then visited Brussels, Berlin. Dresden, Vienna, Luzerne, Geneva and Paris. [n the French capital the dressmakers and shopkeepers were in an excited frame of mind over the tariff bill, and especially the personal baggage clause. They were somewhat surprised to hear a United States senator say he did not think the law would be repealed. The English were surprised that tha United States should pass such a law, but the senator said it was a way with Englishmen to be surprised when any other people did anything for themselves without asking England's advice. The senator was struck with the fact that in European countries where there were so many exceedingly poor people every one seemed to be kept at work and made to earn a living. He thought Berlin the best governed city he saw in Europe. He met ex-Vice President Stevenson in Paris, who expressed his confidence: in the monetary commission being" able to secure some concessions to silver from English statesmen. IS >'O SrCH AX ESTATE. Some Facts That May Save a Lot of People Trouble and Money. Wjishir.gtor., Oct. 11. — The treasuryde- partmer.t has had many inquiries from time to time about the alleged estate of one Joseph Ball, of Philadelphia, which is supposed to b* in trust in the treasury department. The letters speak of this trust and of an alleged eighty-four-year !ea» gi ven by Ball to certain valuable property in Philadelphia. Some time ago it was stated that ex-President Harrison was interested as an attorney in the estate. Many hundreds of people all over hte country have been drawn into the struggle for the money which they erroneously Imagine lies in the treasury awaiting distribution. To all of these inquiries replies are sent out informing- the "heirs" that there is no such fund in the treasury, and that the only record in the treasury department of "Joseph Ball, of Philadelphia," relates to a claim of about $3,000 which he filed as an underwriter against the government in 1S01 for cargoes seized by the French. The claim is one of the ordinary French spoliation claims. Er-Mlnirter Taylor 11.— _Hftnnla.T«j*t late United States minister to Sfjaln, Has arrived in Washington. H« called at the state department and was in consultation for some time with First Assistant Secretary Day, setting out such phases of the conditions in Spain as they existed at the date of his departure from Madrid as had not been touched upon In his official reoprts before being relieved by Minister Woodfcrd. Taylor called upon Ft«sldeut McICir.lry and furnished him wirh a brief review of the situation in »a:n. _^_____ He Arjriies for Annexation. Washington. Oct. 11.—Lorrin A. Thurston, ex-mir'scer from Hawaii, has issued a "ha.r.d book on the annexation of Hawaii" of eighty-eight pages in pamphlet form. In it he essays to answer all theobjeetionstoannesation. The pith of the argument is tJie well-known one that the islands are ff? key to the control of the Pacific, ana that if we do not take them somebody else—most likely Japan—will. The concluding paragraph is the most significant: "Theday has gone by when the United States can ignore its international privileges and obligations. Whether it will or no the logic of events is forcing the' American people and to take their place as one of the great 'international nations,' and incidentally thereto to adopt such meanj a? are necessary to sustain the position." Will Appeal from the Appraise™. Washington, Oct. 11.—Acting Secretary Spaulding said Saturday that the treasury department will appeal to the courts from the decision of the general board of appraisers In New York hold- Ing that the Dlngley tariff-bill-did not go into effect until the actual moment It was signed. The department still maintains that the.law was operative from the prior midnight of the day .ii: was signed. ________^_ DEATH OF P. E. STUDEBAKER.

Oct. 11.—The strike of miners in northern Illinois is still on, no agreement being reached by the convention of operators and miners held here Friday last. The delegates voted unanimously not to accept a less scale than the price adopted at the Springfield con- ventiqn. The operators positively declined to consider that scale, but offered an advance of 4 cents over the scale adopted here last May. which would be 56V> cents for screened coal. They argued that they could not pay the price asked and retain their business, and said they would let the shafts rot first. Baltimore Likely to C«t the Cnp. Baltimore.

Four Cases Found by Dr. Guiteras, the Expert, at Galveston, Lone Star State. DENGUE HAS BEEN EASING THEBE And Like at Other PUce* Suddenly It Is Yellow Jack—Only One Kail-way Open from the Texas Metropolis—A Few Hundred People I*ave the Town—>"ew Orleans Adda 37 New Cases to the List and Five Deaths—Other Points. Galveston, Tex.. Oct. 11.—Before a meeting of the Galveston board of health yesterday Dr. Guiteras made the following: statement: "I have reported to Surgeon General TVyman and communicated to Health Officer Fisher, County Physician "iVarfield and Acting Mayor Skinner, that there are five cases of yellow fever here and three cases that have recovered from the disease. There is no doubt in my mind aa to the correctness of the diagonsis in four of these cases. I have been very careful, and have made no statement as to any cases without close personal examination. The cases are scattered, and seem to have no connection. They appear to have developed in a quite confusing way, and are mixed with dengue fever. There is one at the Sealy hospital. I have reported two at St. Mary's Infirmary, but find that in o»e at ftie infirmary I was mistaken." The opinion'of a majority of the physicians here la that there is no yellow fever at Galveston, but that a tpye of dengue fever has existed for the past sixty days, and that there have been 15,000 cases of dengue and not a single death. What Is Dengue Fever, Anyhow ? A meeting of citizens of Galveston has hf-en called for the purpose of asking Dr. Wyman to keep Dr. Guiteras here until he has had time to report fully on all suspicious cases. Galveston was somewhat excited Saturday night, but yesterday the city was quiet. The Santa Fe All_pther ight before any one could^et out of town. The Santa Fe tobtTout seveiTfy-fivejiersons Saturday r.ight and 118 departed on yesterday's train. Forty-two people arebooked for New York by steamer which sails today and forty people have left by boat for bay shore points. This constitutes the total heglra from here. The citizens claim that if these four cases are yellow fever then thousands of citizens have it, as there have been thousands of cases similar to the cases pronounced by Dr. Guiteras to be yellow fever. >To Better at the Crescent City. New Orleans, Oct. 11.—The fever situation here grew no better yesterday. Early in the evening there was a promise that Saturday's record would be equaled if it was not exceeded. New cases appeared in various portions of the city. There were several deaths, and in one case the fatality occurred not long after the report of the case was brought to the attention of the board. Two of the deaths were in Carrollton, which—relative to population—has furnished more fatal cases than any locality in the city. The official report of the board of health is as follows; New cases, 37; deaths, 5; total cases; to date, 577; total deaths, 61; total cases under treatment, 276. Sickness Among tlie Doctors. Among the new cases is that of Mrs. Sampsell. Her husband. Dr. Sampsell, and their son were taken ill two or three days ago, and the infection has spread in the premises. Another physician is on the list of cases reported yesterday Dr. Otto Lerch, but he is not reported to have a serious attack. Dr. Barnett and Dr. Howard OlUphant are both reported to be progressing favorably towards recovery. At Other Infected Points. Jackson, Miss., Oct. 11.—There are no new cases of yellow fever atNittaTuma. At Edwards there are nine new cases and one dc-ath. Mobile, Ala., Oct. 11.—Seven cases of yellow fever, two deaths in the city and i.ne at Magazine Point, three miles distant, and three recoveries, make the record for this city for yesterday. DECISION OF INTEREST TO LABOR. Bonds AjfSJnut Employiny Xon-Union Men Declared Null and Void. Philadelphia, Oct. 11.—The common plf-as court Saturday decided that the bonds of security which the clothing manufacturers were required to give to the Association of Garment Workers of America in May last before the strikers would return to work have no legal value. As security that they would not employ non-union men and would continue to pay the fixed wage scale the manufacturers were each required to give a bond of $200. Two non-union, men were found working In one of the establishments, and their discharge was immediately demanded and judgment was entered on the bond of the firm. A rule was taken by the firm before the court of common pleas to open the judgment, and the court concluded that the agreement was one-sided as the em- ployes gave nothing in return except a promise tojreturn to work. Soldier .Draps*"! b T the Fe * n Chlcago, Oct. n.— The alleged punishment meted out to Private Charles Hammond, at Fort Sheridan Saturday has caused considerable mutinous talk among the enlisted men at the post, so it Is said. Under orders from Captain Levering, officer of the day, Hammond was dragged feet first by four soldiers from tlie gnard house, down a flight of stairs to headquarters 500 yards away, upstairs; then down again and to the adjutant's quarters. Hammond's in- Rcyml iMkM the food p«r*. *AKlH* POWDER •OVAL ftAtQNQ POWDER CO., NE* VOWC CHfCAGO DAY CELEBRATED. Builnet* Men's Parade, Library Dedication and Other Commemoration*. Chicago, Oct. 1L—Continuing th» custom begun in 1S93 vben the World'* fair enclosure held three Quarters of A million people in memory of the great fire "Chicago Day" was observed in so many different ways Saturday that It is a safe assertion that not a child of school age or an adult reaident of th« city or the stranger within its (fates but knew of the celebration and the cause for it. The Christian Erideavor- ers began it with a sunrise BOILS servloa .. and the north side business men closed- it with a dance. The most pretentious celebratior. took place on the north 8i(J» Saturday evening when the business men and residents generally united in an elaborate demonstration in honor of the twenty-sixth anniversary of the great conflagration of 1871. Tlie parade was excellently planned and carried out, with flcato that gave K story in animated pictures of the "rise and fall and rebuilding of th« western metropolis. Music and danclnr and banqueting followed as a finale, and an enormous crowd filled the streets and "parkwayST'to "help on the demonstration. Another happy commemoration of the day was the dedication of the new public library building, a structure erected to hold and care for a collection of 225,000 volumes that began in 1872 with a donation of 3,000 books. The Marquette club, one of the strongest organizations of the kind in the United States, had its annual celebration of the day with a banquet, at which Senator M. A. Hanna was the chief guest. Nashville. Oct. 11.—Illinois and Chicago Day was celebrated in a very appropriate and successful manner at tha Tennessee centennial exposition Saturday. The various delegations from Chicago arrived here at 7:30 In the morning, and were met at the Union station by a reception committee of representative citizens of Nashville. At 1:30 o'clock the-visitors proceeded to the exposition grounds to attend the exercise* held there. The exercises were held on the terrace of the Illinois building with music and speeches, the latter beinp by Governor Taylor, of Tennessee; Hon. Lyman J. Gage, secretary of the treasury; Carter H. Harrison, mayor of Chicago; Senator Mason, of Illinois, and others. DEMONSTRATION AT DUBUtN. Cnltt-d State* Tin* Carried In Place of tttm BritUh in a Fiu-nell Farad*. Dublin, Oct II.—Yesterday was the sixth anniversary of the death of Charle» Stewart Parnell. Five thousand Nationalists paraded the streets to the bleak Glasnevln cemetery, where they heaped high the grave of their famous and lamented leader with flower* brought from all th« comities of Ireland. The demonstration was unique. Previous demonstrations have had strictly a funeral character; but In accordance with the decieion of the leaders that of yesterdaywasdlvested of all. the trapping* and the suits of woe and concerted into a. triumphal procession, lively national airs replacing dirges. There were more than thirty banda In-the procession, and every county and large town, as w«H as scores of smaller towns, hail official repres«nta.tlon. No union Jack was carried, but nearby everr county delegation r&lMd th« stars and stripes next to the green. One of th« most sugg«stlve featm-en of the demonstration was the pr*dominanc* of children and aged people, showing that the tide of emigration is carrying Ireland'ir able-bodied sons and daughters to more- prosperous lands. On th<> arrival of the prooes«ton at tn»- cemetery the committee and the members of the Pamell family deposited wreaths anfl floral tokens on the grave. There was no .speech-making and nothing in the way of formal cerenioT.y. A smart shower finally sent the «pectatcra scurrying for shelter. There were no- partisan collisions, and the tone of the anti-Pamell prwe in catatatrMng upon the anniversary and the celebration ia exceptionally moderate. Decline* » CoiwULtelp.
