Oct. 13.—Secretary Sherman has written a reply to the note of Lord Salisbury expressing great Britain's declination to take part in a Behring sea conference in which Russia and Japan are to participate. The essential features of Sherman's reply have been sent by cable to the British government, and the rejply in full is now on its way to the British authorities. Lord Salisbury's note of declination, it can ROW be stated, bore date of Oct. 6, last Wednesday, so that the response is made with promptness. The answer states that the United States government views with astonishment the determination of Great Britain not to participate in a conference including Russia and Japan, and the statement is made that up to the 23d of last month the United States authorities had fully expected that the conference -would proceed with Russia and Japan, as well as G'reat Britain, present. "Why Uncle Sam Is Astonished. It is pointed out that aside from the written correspondence to which Lord Salisbury had called attention there were verbal negotiations between Ambassador Hay and his lordship In-which specific reference was made to the participation of Russia and Japan. At one of these verbal exchanges, it is stated. Lord Salisbury said he would advise with the officials of the foreign ofllc" concerning the subjects discussed, which included the participation of Russia and Japan. Subsequently, on July 28, Ambassador Hay wrote to Lord Salisbury- saying the president hoped to have Russia and Japan participate in th» conference. In view of these circumstances the United States had confidently expected that Great Britain would take part in the conference, and that Russia and Japan would be represented with the approval of Great Britain. Bound to Confer-witli John. Besides the foregoing reply, And iu view of the differences which have arisen, the state department suggeists a conference in accordance with the terms of Lord Salisbury's agreement as he . construes it—between experts of e-rilat Britain, the United States and Canada. This last feature is now under consideration by the British government, its substance having been transmitted by cable, but it is not expected that an answer will be made until Sherman's answer in detail reaches London. In the meantime preparations for the conference between the United States, Russia and Japan are proceeding. The Japanese -ielesates who are now en route from San Francisco have decided to stop over two days at Chicago, and will not reach Washington until next Sunday night. Two of the Russia delegates, Botkine and Routkowsky, ora here and the remaining delegate, Greb- nits-ky, is expected soon. TRAIN COUPLERS AND BRAKES. Railways *\Taiit an Extension of Time and Are Asked How It Happens. Washington, Oct. 13.—T!ie Chicagoand Alton and other railroads having filed petitions with the interstate commerce commission asking for an extension of the time within which their cars are required to be equipped with the automatic couplers and power, or train, brakes, the time fixed by act of congress being Jan. 1, 1S9S, the commission has made an order that on Wednesday, Dec. 1, it will hear petitions filed on or before Nov. 15, and at which time all persons interested for, or who oppose an extension of time, may appear. Any person may at the hearing, or at any time prior thereto, file with the commission any affidavit, statement or argument bearing upon the question. The commission also requires that asy road asking for extension shall publish a notice of the fact and also post such notice in its several stations. The commission has also ordered that any railroad filing application for extension shall also make, on or before Nov. 20. a statement under oath of the number of freight 'cars owned, the number of freight cars which will be equipped with automatic couplers, and. the number which will be equipped, with power, or train brakes by the 1st day of December, 1897; the number of freight cars which have been equipped with automatic couplers, and the number which have been equipped with power, or train, brakes each calendar year since the act went into effect March 2, 1S93. The commission requires this information to be fur^Jshed Tor the purpose- of knowing- whai" t ><fort the carriers have made to comply ";yth the provisions of this law, and whether the railroads have' endeavored in good faith to comply therewith. The ccmmi=sion may extend the time as to one railroa/1 and refuse to extend it as to another, t^J if it should "appear upon investigation that some particular railroad hsd gone on without any serious intention or design of equipping its cars within the time limited by the act it may refuse it relief, while granting it to another road. The railroads are very anxious for an extension ov' time. In order to avoid liability in damage suits where accidents may be alleged to be due to illegal and defective appliances. DOES JfOT SETTX.E THE CASE. Attorney General of the TTnited Stetc* Appears Void of Authority. Washington, Oct. 13.—It has been taken for granted that the attorney general's opinion concerning t&e Dralefl section l-r seUled the question. At least it is supposed to be settled until congress changes the law. It is by ao means certain that this is the case. Ef the collector at any port in th*; United States, even the smallest one on car northern boundary, should see fit to impose the 10 per cent, discriminating duty upon an importation like that recently under discussion the case would have to go to the board of general appraisers, from which either party might take an appeal to the courts. Neither the attorney general nor the secretary of the treasury has any judicial status in controversies of this kind. The collector of the port is a judicial officer, and the customs department of the treasury is merely his adviser. Its opinions have no bindics legal force upon him. In the same way the attorney general holds the relation of a counseling lawyer merely, whom the secretary of the treasury has called in for an opinion, and so the opinion of McKenna as promulgated by Secretary Gage need not necessarily close the controversy, however, much the ger.c-ra] public may wish that it will do so. Through Travel Jfot Delayed. Washington, Oct. 23.— The pa--songer department of the Southern railway has promulgated the information that through travel between New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and all eastern cities, and Montgomery, Mobile, New Orleans and intermediate points, is not; subject to any delay an account of the quarantine regulations. Exports of Domestic Products. Washington, Oct. 13.— The monthly treasury statement of the principal articles of domestic export shows that during September last the exports of breadstuffg from the United States amounted to $34,629,946, an increase aa compared with September, 1S9S, of over 100 per cent,, and an Increase of about 300 per cent, over September, 1895. Inheritance Tax Law Cil.se*. Washington, Oct. 13. — A motion was made in the United States supreme court yesterday to advance cases involving the inheritance tax law of the state of Illinois. There are three of these cases, and the court took the matter under advisement. Pres tdent to Attend a Dinner. Washington, Oct. 13. — The president has decided to attend the dinner of the Commercial club in Cincinnati on Oct. BO. It is to be a non-partisan affair, and McKinley does not expect to make a LEARNED SOMETHING IN ITALY. Albany, N. Y., Xow Has a Meridian I.iue Established in the Street. Albany, X, Y., Oct. 13.—Th!s city has made an innovation which Mayor Thacher believes other cities will follow. It is a "meridian line," and has aroused curiosity among Albanians. The meridian line is being placed in position diagonally across the sidewalk at the southwest corner of the city hall. It is nearly completed and has already accomplished the purpose for which Mayor Thacher desired it when he asked the common council to appropriate a certain sum for the establishment of a meridian line in the sidewalk and a bronze tablet on the city hall on which should be inscribed the longitude and latitude of the city of Albany. The idea of a meridian line first struck Mayor Thacher while making- a visit to a cathedral in Milan, Italy. He noticed a brass strip in the floor and upon inquiry learned that It was Intended to establish the direction of north and south. The mayor thought that this would be a good thing for his own city, and last May suggested it to the common council. The latter Immediately acted favorably upon his advice and City Engineer Andrews was requested to do the necessary work with the mayor. It is suggested that there Is a very Important value to a. meridian line properly established, and that no county seat in the country should be without one. In fact it would fill a long-felt want. Much difficulty is experienced frequently in establishing the bounds of farm property, principally because county surveyors have no common line to which to refer their courses, and turn off the variation on their compasses from some section line on a survey they may b« making at the time. No two compasses give the same variation and sometimes the lines of a survey are recorded as being run with a different variation for each of the sides. Surveyors can easily see the advantage of a permanent meridian. GI&SON NOT A GREAT FRAUD. Supposed Rascal Captured at Xew Torlc Seem* to Have Been Libeled. New York, Oct. 13.—Emmet C. Gibson. the promoter, vice president of the Akron Street Railway and IlluminatinK company and said to be associated in business with General Samuel Thomas and J. P.

Stimson, auditor of the Hotel Netherland and Imperial, said to Magistrate Hedges that He did not believe that Dr. Gibson had any intention of defrauding him. Gibson lived at the Imperial.

Austin, Tex., Oct. 13.—Yesterday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock. In broad, open daylight, and within twelve miles of the corporate limits of this city, the southbound Cannon Ball train on the. International and Great Northern railroad, consisting of mail, baggage and express cars and three coaches loaded with passengers, was held up by four men and robbed. The conductor of the trait., Tom Healy, was shot by the robbers while resisting them, but fortunately not. seriously wounded. One of the passengers had his shirt collar carried away by a pistol ball that was aimed at his neck, and another received a bullet wound in the hand. The passengers were robbed of some $200 in monty. The bandits attempted to rifle the safe in the express car, but were unsuccessful. Passengers Were All Paralysed. When the train reached McNeil!, a small station fourteen miles- above this city, two men heavily armed boarded the train and took up their stand on the rear platform. After the conductor hud checked up the train he reached the platform only to find a pistol at the side of his head. The men demanded that he stop the train. He declined to do so and began to run through the train with the robbers In close pursuit. He had not gone half the length of the first carwben the foremost robber shot at him, bringing him to the floor with a pistol wound in his right arm. At this Juncture the other robber pulled the bell cord and lha train was brought to a standstill. Enter More at the I'huf*. It was evidently at the apointed pla.ce, for the train had hardly stopped before two other men whose faces were covered with masks stepped out from' the trees and began shooting- into the care.
