With': the commenceinttrt of hostilities in "the' Orient the big packing companies •throughout the land 'began shipping icannefl goods to Y-ekdhaina in large quantities, as canned, .goods are important titems in the list of. army supplies and always find a ready market. The Canadian line of steamers irednced the rate •of canned goods at the outset and has re- iC9»ttybeen handling), heavy shipmente for the packing houses in Omaha and Chicago. To divert 7 ihis traffic to San Francisco the Pacific Mall has announced a cut; in the tariff on canned meats (from flB3 to f5-<per ton.

SD.-wMail advices received here from OUina tfrom soorcei especially, credited, of date-early in August, are almost prophetic _ef what has already occurred there since that date, and if the predicitioins fer the future hold good, Secretary llerbert's/action in largely reinforcing the> United States warships in Chinese waters will be proved to have been a very.wise dove. The advices describe the mzasvireB which have been adopted by the Chinese to block the navigation of their rivters and the resulting effect upon commerce. Trade to ensue is being adversely affected, as cipher teltegram* are no longer accepted, although (they con bo,tent from Shanghai. A feeling of timidity as to the safety of the btielness ventures with Tien Xsin is natnrAlly pervading the business world. The Chinese themselves will not block the pout, but the Japanese are likely to do so at any time. An effort was making to secure immunity from'Capture of Japanese and Chinese vessels plying respectively between their own ports and in common to uantral ports, but the concent of the Japanese had not at the date of the advice been received. There was, however, a great menace to trade from another quarter and it was this that .load to the Appeals of foreign merchants for the presence of home warships in the treaty ports of China. It was expected by them that should (the Chinese be.defeated on their own soil, exactly what has happened, according .to cabled reports, the Chinese soldiers would be demoralized and fall to scouring the country in every direction, committing outrage*. In that event the slender 'thread which sustains the obedience of the masses to the viceroy wonld bo snapped and pandemonium would reign supreme. The Chinese naturally hate the well ordered management of a foreign community and with disorder and confusion everywhere the peaceable and well regulated composure of a foreign community is euro to exoito the animosity of soldiers inflamed by passion of whom control has been loot. The great treaty port of Tien Tain is believed to be especially threatened. One prophetic statement in the mail advices is AS follows: "In proportion to the disasters of war that will surely overtake China the in- luencoof the viceroy will wano.and should ;ho defeat of the Chinese be a crushing one he will bo absolutely incapable of maintaining order. Li flung Chung has u a severe discipliniariau and with reverses, the masses will turn upon him with the poutup hatred of yean." As these defeats are cowing to pass and thu prophecy has already boon vori- fiad as to Li's d«grodatiou it will bo a matter of sorioua interest to know how ar thu remainder of this prediction shall bo justified by tho events of tho future. ce and for stranding his ves<>eUin •••An attempt to escape dnr- ing the jJctiMi off the Yalti rirer.

It is also reported the Chinese troops have evacuated Corea and are now massed at Chin Lien Ching, 80 miles westward ot the Yftlu river. It is stated there have been numerous desertions from the Chi- neswavmy of late because of the faulty 'condition of the arms aud ammunition supplied to the troops.

The accident happened shortly after 1 o'clock and was the result of a well laid plan to ditch the entire train. Happily, albiet, miraculously, the Pullmans kept on the track and the mail and baggage cars, although badly wrecked, did not contain any victims. The Killed. F. X. SMITH, engineer, Toledo. Fatally Injured. A. H. Day, fireman, Toledo. Slightly Injured. S. Holland, mail clerk, Cleveland. B. F. J. Provost, Toledo. E. S. Coffin, Toledo. J. S. Dnlton, Toledo. The wreck was planned by whoever conceived the plot to occur at the west end of a long siding just beyond the .Manmee station. The road at the lower part of the switch target had been removed and the switch was partly thrown. The target indicated a clear track and Engineer Smith was not aware of the situation many minutes before his motor was bumping along on the ties. As soon as the train struck the switch it leaped into the air, fell forward toward the ditch and turned completely over. The trucks of the mail cars followed the engine, but the cars themselves went in an opposite direction. Under them were found the dead body of Engineer Smith and Fireman Day. At the time of the wreck the train was running at its regular speed, and it is considered a miracle that .no more lives _wero lost. The express and baggage cars were literally reduced to splinters, although the occupants escaped unhurt. There were several passengers in the combination smoker, which was wrecked bryond repair, yet no scratches could he shown by any of them. The passengers in the Pullmans were only made aware of the accident by the severe jolting whi;'h they experienced. Wrecking trains from Toledo and Fort Wayne, Ind., were immediately sent to the scene of the wreck and tho main track was cleared for travel by 7 o'clock Sunday evening. The dead engineer and fireman are both I new men on the road and are believed to FARMERS' NATIONAL CONGRESS. (tamponed of OeleRtiteA Appointed fay OBT- ernors of tho Different Stntef. WftEEMNO, W.
