WILER & WISE Bnt m Contraction In the Corasumptlon Suggested, Owing to Increased Prices of Wheat and Rye—Kus.-iun International J-avryer Selected as the Cmpfre Jn the Venezuela Boundary Dispute—Indication Tliat Justice Field Is to .Retire. Washing-ton, Oct. 14.—The monthly report of the agricultural department on the European crop situation, summarizing the reports of European correspondents, -was made public yesterday. Following Is an abstract: Recent information, white it may in some coses modify the crop estimates for particular countries, does not essentially change the situation as regards the deficiency in th« principal cereal crops of Europe. The outlook for wheat in the Australian colonies continues good, but the prospects n Argentina are somewhat less bright, owing to drought and frosts. Accounts 'rom India are quite favorable, both aj o the Kharif crops, harvested, or to be larvested this fall. and as to' the seeding of the RabI crop, to be harvested next prlnff, which latter deludes the wheat op. . . • World'§ Entire Wheat and Kye Crop*. The annual estimate of' the-world'* wheat and rye crops issued by the Hungarian' ministry of agriculture, gives the following- revised results for 1897, compared with 1896: Wheat production, importing countries, 800,771,000 for 1897; 886,639,000 for 1896. Exporting countries, 1S97. 1.341,896,000: 1S96, 1,452,902,000. Total wheat production of both importing and exporting countries in 1897, 2,142,577,000; in 1896, 2,339,541,000; net deficit, 1897, 202,895,000: 1S96, 130,534,000. The world's rye crop Is put down by the same authority as follows: 18$7. 1,163,457,000; 1896, 1,203,185,000. These figures are all In bushels. Against the net deficit of approximately 203,000.000 bushels of wheat estimated by the ministry It estimates that there is a residue of from 145,000,000 to 170,000,000 bushels out of the former crops, leaving in round numbers from 58,000,000,000 down to 33.000,000 bushels as the quantity by which it would be necessary to curtail consumption if these estimates should prove to be correct. Many People Will Go Hungry. It is, of course, quite likely that under the influence of high prices consumption will'be curtailed by more than this amount, and that existing- stocks will not be reduced too near to the point of complete exhaustion. Extremely pessimistic reports as to the extent of the crop.,failure in Eussia have been circu- probatfte caange in me conrrs nel, but his manner and the fact that he Insists upon the postponement of important cases leaves little room for doubt that he is of opinion that there "til be a change. CLOSE OF A CELEBRATED CASE. Governor 1 ! Wife and Jad(re'« WJdoir aa Trial for Forgery. Gienville. W. Va., Oct. 14.—The jury In the famous case of ilrs. Governor / Atkinson, on trial for forging her former I husband's name, disagreed yesterday j and was discharged by the court. The jury stood seven for acquittal and five for conviction. . It is not believed that the case will be tried again. The arguments and judge's charge were completed at 11 o'clock Tuesday night. Mrs. Atkinson had been on the stand ten hours. Her testimony was a general denial of all the allegations charged in the indictments. She did not waver from the statement on cross-examination that all the receipts in controversy given to Owens were written at the dictation of Judge Camden in his lifetime, and that they represented what they show upon thljTf face. She insisted that all the other papers and transactions relied upon by the state to show criminal Intentioa were genuine and instituted at the dictation of Judge Camden. She denied that she had any interest whatever In the Owens land, or that Owens had at any time paid her money or any other thing- of value. The cross-examination was con-, ducted by Robert G. Linn for the state/ and was very rigid, Mra. Atkinson's demeanor upon the witness stand was modest and unassuming. She made a favorable impression. POWDER Abtolutely Vur* MINE WANTS A DIFFERENTIAL.

New Orleans, Oct. 14.—Yesterday's official yellow fever report wad as follows: New cases, 31; deaths, &; total cases to date, 685; total deaths to date, 77; total cases absolutely recovered, 305 total cases under treatment, 303. The number of deaths was greateryes- terday than on any other day during thia epidemic «r yellow lever. It is difficult to find th« cause, except in the fact that concealment, neglect and rebellion against the authority ot the board o£ health have made it difficult for th« physicians to give proper attention to cases. Heretofore the .highest number of deaths in any one day has been aix. At the board of health there was som« discussion among- the gathered physicians as to whether the disease had assumed suddenly a more virulent form or whether an aggregation of circumstances had sect up the list of deaths. Prominent doctors say they do not believe the disease has become more malignant in type. Elsewhere the fever IE not making rap- Id progress. In Texas no town reports any u«w cases. Mobile has 13 new cases and no deaths: Biioxi, 17 new cases, no daathsi; Scranton, 9 new cases, 1 death; McHe;;ry, 1 case and 1 death; Edwards, Miss., 7 cases and 1 death. R. O. Settles, superintendent of the Wagar Lumber company at Wagar, Ala., filled there Tuesday night of yellow fever. One new case has developed. Settles was from Ohio and had been south some time. Recently he and his wife pafd a. visit to their home, but he returned alone when the yellow fever was announced in the south, leaving- his wife behind, him.

Oct. 14.—The horse called Little Joker who won the 2:30 paos at the fair here on Thursday, Sept. SO, and who was protested against re- celvirjj first money by C. A. Wilson, driver of The Bishop, who finished second; ss being not eligible to the 2:30 class stnd started under an assumed name, was identified at Grayvilie, nis., last week as Tar Tartar, and tvas expelled by the American Trotting association, together with his owner and driver, 3f orman T. Black, who went under the name of H. X. Phillips while racing- here acd who claimed Jiis home as Muncle, Ind. Tar Tartar was the horse the racs officers supposed Little Joker lareu, but the liberal quantities coming forward for shipment have led dealers to receive sucl. reports with incredulity. It is probable, however, that much of the Russian grain going to western European markets is out of the more 1'b- eral harvests of former j-ears, and tl.ere is evidence tending- to ?how that the crop of 1S97 is at any rate considerably below the average. Enrope Is SJurt of Barley, Also. The markets of Europe will apparently be very inadequately supplied with good clear barley suitable for malting purposes, complaints on this score being common among growers in large parts of Germany, Auscrla-Hur.gary and other countries, including: the province of Ontario in Canada, in which such barley is usually an important product. ThX European potato crop is apparently short one, and tho fruit crop also Is deficient. Consul Eugene Germain, of Zurich. Switzerland, after an Investigation of the European fruit prospect, expresses the opinion that there will be a good market for American apples and dried fruit this reason, if growers will be careful to put up choice stock only. ARBITRATOR COSIES FKOST RUSSIA. Man Who Win Decide Disputed Point* for Venezuela and Britain. Washington,Oct. 14.—The international courtof arbitration which is to pass on the British-Venezuela boundary has been completed by the selection of M. Maertens, a distinguished Russian Jurist, as umpire, and arrangements are being- made for the assembling of the court at Paris during the late summer or fall of next year. In the meantime the briefs of Great Britain and of Venezuela are being- prepared, but none of the papers have yet been submitted. M. llaertens will act nijt only as umpire but also as president of the board. The announcement that a European umpire had been chosen was made some tim* since, but the name bad been withheld until the sanction of the czar could be secured for M. ilaertenij' service as arbitrator. Great Britain and Venezuela each submitted a list of distinguished jurists who would be acceptable to it as umpire. These embraced the most noted men of Europe, but it is a tribute to M. Maertens that his was the only one on Bogult Being That Another IlLLnoii Co*I Strike I* Probable. Springfield, Ilia., Oct. 14.—Some 300 miners went to the Springfield Junction mine yesterday, headed by District President Cartwrlght, of the Miners' union, because the operators at that shaft were selling coal to small consumers at 6 cents per bushel, 2 cents less than the pool price of the Springfield operators. Operators Robert D. I*oose acd Charles Price refused to increase the price unless the operators would pay them $300 per month royalty, they being at a disadvantage in jelling coal by their mine being- farther from the city than other mines. The delegation then saw the miners working at the shaft and the latter agreed to go out in case their employers did not raise the price of coal to 8 cents per bushel. The Springfield Junction company is paying the miners' union scale. The sheriff and deputies were present in case there should be any trouble. oio mm WINK?

Milan, Tenn., Oct. 14.—Lavina, Carroll Bounty, was the battleground Tuesday nig-ht for wai-ring- 1 actions, and one dead and probably four fatally wounded ia the result. A large party of whltecaps went to the '.home of Dot Price, a negro, and riddled the doors and windows of his cabin with bullets. The negro through a window fired repeatedly into the gang, and groans and yells testified to his deadly aim. The morning' sun disclosed William Sires lying dead In a pool of blood, surrounded by four of his companions very badly wounded. The bodies were soon spirited away, but it Is learned that three of the wounded men will die. Intense excitement prevails and a race war Is predicted, as the whitecaps are swearing vengeance on the negroes, who defiantly dare them to do their worst. For Sale at Ben Fisher's.

Oct. 1-t,—The belief that Justice Field is seriously contemplating early retirement from the supreme court bench was strengthened yesterday by tbe postponement of several more Important cases until the first Monday In January.

The probabilities are that the majority may be increased. Taggart's majority over all is at this writing 2,955, there being six mayoralty candidates. The remainder of the Democratic ticket is also elected, though by a somewhat smaller majority than that received by Taggart. The council will also be Democratic by a large majority. Luetgert's Lawyer Jfo-w Talking. Chicago. Oct. 14.— The entire day tn the Luetgert trial was taken up by Attorney Phalen, who spoke for the defense. He made an impassioned plea for his client. At the beginning of the session- the state objected to the presence of Luetgert's children at his side and the court not only ordered their removal, but upon objection by the defense declared that the purpose of having the children there was to influence the jury. An exception to this remark was taken. Phalen was still speaking at adjournment yesterday. "Will Fight the Glnccwe Tnwt.

New York, Oct 14.—Evangellna C08sf» y Cisneros is in New Tork. She crrlved safely on the Warfl line steamer Seneca yesterday morning, direct from Havana, The steamer was met down the bay by a tug having on board a large number of newspaper men and Cuban patriots. If the Spaniards are not wroth at the escape her rescue from a Havana prison was one of the most daring feaia ever attempted with success. It is largely the opinion among those who know something ot Spanish methods, however, that there was no real danger to those engaged in the enterprise. Among those who believe this is W. J, Calhoun, of Danville, who was in Cuba as special commissioner. He believes the Spanish authorities winked at the escape of Miss Cisneros as affording them relief from a troublesome subject without compromising their dignity. Passed Through the Detective Line. Whether there was danger to the rescuers or not the girl who has become oo famous is here, and needs no resruers now, from Spanish enemies, at any rate. This is the way 9he Is alleged to have escaped: While she was still in prison her friends secured a passport for one Juan Sola, and state room No. 3 on the Seneca was held in the same name. This was three days before the boat sailed. On the Saturday when the Seneca was to leave Havana detectives watched her gang-ways. All day long they remained at their post, examining the passports which all passengers have to show before leaving Havana. Their vigilance would probably have prevented the departure of Miss Cisnero» from Cuba had it not been for a little refreshment which was served on them by friends of Miss Cisneros who were aboard the Seneca. Are Refreshments Uf ufilly Served ? The refreshment included wine. The chief of police of Havana came aboard while the refreshment part of the plot was in progress, and it is alleged that he, too. fell a victim of the wiles of the Cisneros faction. A few minutes before the Seneca was ready to pull out from her dock a. slim young fellow came running across tho wharf. He had no baggage and was fashionably dressed. He walked quickly up the gang-plank. The detectives stopped him. "My name is Juan Sola," he said, and he showed his passport. Everything was satisfactory, so the senor was .'allowed to go aboard. It is said that if It had not been tor the wine the strange treble and rathar curious figure of Senof Sola might have excited the suspicions of the Span-Ish detectives. But the scheim. worked successfully. . "'•' t - "'':-. WHY WAS THK CAJSTADT WKOTHf 8*en« No Rewon Therefor—PolJco N»» Searching Very CloMly.
