If They Aprree on a Plan to Protect the Herds the Principals to the Dispute Will Proceed to Negotiate—Reciprocity, Etc., Meanwhile Takes u Back Seat—Spanish Editor and Publicist at Washington Talks of Cuba and Autonomy — !Ko Arbitration with Peru. 'Washington, Nov. 11.—In accordance with the arrangements the experts representing the three governments—the United States, England and Canada- assembled at the state department about half-past 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The exper.o were respectively Messrs- Jordan, Thompson and Macoun. In addition Colonel Foster and Mr. Hamlln were In attendance for the UnitedStates and Sir Louis Davies for Canada. Sir Julian Pauncefote sent a note excusing himself from coming on account of illness. The meeting lasted for about an hour, and presumably the proceedings were mainly preliminary and designed, to outline a plan of procedure. Hamlln was elected chairman. It was officially stated that the proceedings were secret In the sense that nothing could be given out for publicantion before the end of the deliberations. Another meeting- will be held at 11 o'clock this morning. The feature of the seal treaty negotiated with Russia and Japan is said to be the short time it Is to continue in force, the limit being one year. Laiirler Jfot To Be Interviewed. The Canadian premier received callers in very democratic fashion at his apartments in the Shoreham, but to all he gave the reply that it would be manifestly premature at this stage for him to discuss the outlook on the Behring sea. question or any other subjects which concern the United States and Canada. He and Sir Louis Davies desired first to communicate with the seal experts of the United States and Great Britain before indicating any course of action. He made it clear, also, that they would give their exclusive attention to this subject until some conclusion wa= reached, and that other questions, such as reciprocity, border immigration, etc.. would not be referred to until the first purpose of the visit was accomplished. It was stated that the official purpose of the visit was to consider the Behring sea matter, and that future circumstances would develop how far other questions would be opened to consideration. Britain and the Silver Envoys. Senator Wolcott, since his return, has been extremely reticent about his recent trip abroad, and refuses to see members of the press. The commission of which he is chairman will make a report to the executive. This report will be accompanied by the correspondence which has been had with the governments with whom the commission has been negotiating. Wolcott is not yet without hope of success and has explained how near the commission was to bringing about a favorable reply. Wolcott said that when everything was going along nicely, and it seemed as if the British cabinet would go as far as had been promised—reopening the Indian mints and consenting to a conference—the press of Great Britain and the bankers of London criticised the cabinet so severely that it was compelled to take a course contrary to what the commission had expected. SPANISH AMERICAN 3IATTEKS. Senor Canalejas Explains the Peeling in Spain—Peru Gets Another Hint, Washington. Nov. 11. — Senor Jose Canalejas, one of the foremost public men of Spain, editor of El Heraldo, of Madrid, former minister of justice in the Liberal ministry, and closely identified with Premier Sagasta and the new Liberal regime in Spam, arrived in Washington yesterday. While the visit is unofficial much interest attaches to it among public men, owing to Senor Canalejas' intimate knowledge of, conditions at the Spanish capital. The Spanish minister called on Senor Canalejas soon after his arrival and the two were together much of the day, being joined later by Calderon Carlisle, counsel for the legation. Senor Canalejas accorded to a representative of the press a brief interview. Having recently arrived in this country, he expressed himself as little acquainted with conditions here, but as to -those in Madrid he spoke freely. "The feeling there is one of expectancy," said he. "But thereas little or no feeling that a serious crisis will present itself between the United States and Spain, and there is no thought in well informed circles that extreme measures— or a resort to war—will result. A complete change of policy has resulted from theaccession of the Liberal ministry, and the aggressive policy executed by General Weyler is now succeeded by the more conciliatory methods of that peioe- ful soldier. General Blanco. "As to the autonomy which Spain now offers to Cuba, it is autonomy of the genuine character, and it is tendered in the sincerest good faith. In all internal affairs the autonomy now offered will give the Cuban people entire freedom in shaping their oiVn affairs. With such a policy in view, and with Genera! Blanco to put it into execution, there .'s very assurance that Spain will do all in her power to restore peace and prosperity in Cuba. Moreover, we lock with confidence on the success of that policy. We are naturally desirous that our friends in the United States should the complete change of policy has occurred and should co-operate with us in having It bring ben.-fi- cial results we look for." It is un4er=tood that the department of zuate has addressed another note to the Peruvian minister. Dr. Eguiguren, politely but firmly requesting a speedy settlement of the claim for indemnity of Victor H. HcCord, an, American citi- zen who was Ill-treated by the 'Peruvian officers while in eaarge of railroads in that country during a rebellion. The present Peruvian minister came to this country with the expressed purpose of getting the state department to reopen the investigation of _tiie.,..facts in the case. The department, however, has da?lined to do this, being satisfied with the presentation of the case made by its #wn minister and agents. It is held that nothing now remains but to adjust the sum to be paid McCord. Moreover, It is believed that no opening is left by the department for arbitration or anything short of an immediate acknowledgement of the claim and its settlement. D'ARMIT APPEALS TO COURT. Will Try to Bring to Issue an Attempt to Boycott His Product. Pittsburg, Nov. 11.—In common pleas court No. 2 the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal company filed a bill in equity asking the court to restrain the city of Pittsburg through the director of public works from readvertising for bids for the furnishing of coal for the Brilliant pumping station. The complainant also asked for a mandatory decree compelling the councils of the city of Pit;tsburg to act on the award of Director Bigelow. The bill in equity recites the manner In which the bid for coal was awarded and that it was rejected by the councils. It states that undue influence waa used, and charges that there is a conspiracy to prevent the New York and Cleveland Gas Coal/%mpany from obtaining the contract.\3it Is .asserted that the rejection of the old, although it was the lowest, was the result of the war organized labor is making against the DeArmit mines, Judge White said he believed the councils had a right to reject the bid if it waa done in good faith, but that it was averred in the bill that the bid was rejected in bad faith. Judge White granted a restraining order preventing Director Bigelow from advertising for bids for coal. The hearing in the matter will be held next Wednesday. AVERAGE YIELD OF THE CROPS. Figured Out by the Statistician of the De' partmciit of Agriculture. Washington, Nov. 11.—The November report of the statistician of the department of agriculture gives 23.7 bushels as the average yield per acre of corn according to the preliminary returns of the department's correspondents. The average yield in the principal corn states is as follows: New York, 32.5; Pennsylvania, 3$; Ohio, 32.5; Indiana, 2S; Illinois, 31.5; Iowa, 29; Missouri, 25; Kansas, 19; Nebraska, 29. The average per cent, of quality is SC.3, as compared with SS.4 In J.S9G and 92.3 in 1S95. The estimated average yield per acre of Irish potatoes is 64.6 bushels. The average percent.of quality is-Sl.3. The average yield of hay is 1.42 tons peracre. In point of quality the average is 92.8 per cent. Favorable conditions for the sowing of the fall crops are reported from most parts of Europe and the conditions of the crops so far as sown is likewise favorable. The crop reports from India continue favorable and on the whole this is true as to those from Argentina and Australia, but in all these countries the harvest is too remote to permit any very confident prediction aa to the final outcome. CLEARS UP A MURDER MYSTERY. Finding of a Body in a Field Will Probably Hang- M. .1. Villers. Jamestown, N. D., Nov. 11.—A murder mystery has been cleared up by the discovery of a body in the southren part of Stutsmen county believed to be that of August Tromer, a well-known and old farmer of the county, who disappeared mysteriously three years ago. M. J. Villers, of Montpelier, who is now serving a ten-year sentence in the state penitentiary for attempted murder of Mrs. Tromer in November. 1S94, is believed to have been ihe murderer of Mr. Tromer. The body was plowed up in an old field formerly worked by Villers, where it had been placed in a shallow grave under a straw stack, which was then burned. While in jail Villers attempted to commit suicide by thrusting a stove poker into his abdomen. He is about 60 years old. Villers wilt probably now be tried for the murder of Tromer whose wife has asserted all along that her husband had been murdered by Villers. The case was very sensational. Mrs. Tromer was knocked on the head and thrown into a forty-foot well, but was discovered and survived her terrible injuries. Meeting Us Another Way. Glasgow, Nov. 11.—The officials of the Joiners' union have notices in all the shops of this city forbidding members of the union to hang doors which have been made in the United States or to use manufactured jobbery which has been imported from America. The reason for this notice, it is said, is that speculative builders have been importing large quantities of all classes of manufactured wood. Conference of Live Stock Boards. Springfield, Ills.. Nov. 11.—Colon::! C. P. Johnson, president of the Interstate Association of Live Stock Sanitary boards has called a conference of the live stock sanitary board? and state veterinarians of Kansas. Nebraska, Missouri. Iowa, Illinois. Wisconsin, Indiana. Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas at the New Planter's House, St. Louis, Dec. 2, 1S97, at 10 a. m.

National Body Meets at Harrisburg, Pa., and Begins Its Annual Deliberations. KATIQffAL MASTEE BEIGHAJIT A T.TTS ; Congratulates the Order on the improved Situation for tbe farmers and Looks Upon the Fatur* UK Full of Hope—Defines the Organization')* Policy, in Which There Is J<o Partisan Politics, He Says— Report* of the Officers. Harrisburg, Pa., Nov. 11.—The National Grange, Patrons of Husbandry, convened yesterday in the supreme court chamber. Delegates from almost all the states represented in the national body were present. National Master J. H. Brigham, assistant secretary of agriculture, who arrived from Washington Tuesday night, was in the chair. The morning session was short and was devoted to preliminaries. The report of the treasurer, Mrs. E. S. McDowell, of New York, showed the finances of the order to be in a satisfactory condition, with a larger amount of funds on hand than the previous year. Secretary Trimble's report showed lllnew granges and nearly 100 reorganizationa The reports of state masters were received. The credentials committee made a partial report and the grange proceeded to receive the reports of its officers. Worthy Master Brigham submitted his annual report. Rejoices Over Improved Market*. Brigham said that the condition of the order was very encouraging. One hundred and forty new granges had been organized and seventy-four dormant ones revived during the past year. "We have," he continued, "reason to rejoice over the marked improvement in the prices of most products of the farm. The prices now received are not burdensome to the consumer, but re- numerative to the farmer, and if maintained will cause a marked advance in the value of farm lands. It is also a highly gratifying sign of the times that the business failures in the south and southwest in July, August and September of the present year represented in the aggregate of their liabilities only $4,394,000. as compared with $11,498,000 during the corresponding period of the preceding year. Kflorts to Sell Our Guods Abroad. "Earnest €:fforts are being madp to extend our markets in foreign countries and to secure the abolition of the discriminating restrictions and prohibitions unjustly maintained by certain foreign countries against our agricultural products. During the fiscal year ended June 10, 1SS7. we shipped to the United Kingdom 378,459 cattle-;- valued- at $35,374,Si2t. and fresh beef amounting to 129,007.775 pounds, valued at $22,626,778. Congress will undoubtedly be urged by Interested associations to appropriate large suras of money to build dams, reservoirs and canals for the purpose of irrigating the arid lands of thfe west." JfO PARTISANSHIP IX THE GKAXGK. Ogranization's Policy Is to Secure Fair Treatment for Farms. With reference to political matters the national master said: " It Is not the policy of our grange to espouse the cause of anj- political party or indorse the policies advocated by either; but when the people have settled the question at issue we accept their decision and try to secure for agriculture fair treatment in the legislation carrying into effect the policy indorsed by the people. In pursuance of this policy we urged upon the members of congress the importance of dealing fairly with the agricultural interests in framing the agricultural schedules of the measure lately enacted into law. I am glad to say that our suggestions and recommendations received due consideration, and farmers will be able to judge for themselves whether such legislation has been beneficial to them or otherwise. "The national grange is on record in favor of electing United States senators by a direct vote of the people. I am sure we will take no backward step in this matter until the constitution 13 amended .to provide for it. Until that ia done we should insist that the people have the right, in some measure, to express their preference for candidates, which will undoubtedly be regarded, as binding upon the legislators of the dominant party." Overseer Aaron Jones, of Indiana, made a verbal report. National Lecturer Messer's report In part follows: "In the face of hard times and depressed'condi- tions the work of the grange has moved steadily forward, and the record of the past year not only shows large gains in membership, but gains have been made in all departments of its work. In none, however, has greater progress been made than in its educational work." A public reception will be held at the opera house this afternoonand Governor Hastings wil make the opening address. JESSIE LINCOLN'S ELOPEMENT. Bobt. Lincoln's Daughter Married to * Man Her Father Objected To. Chicago, Nov. 11.— The Times-Herald this morning says: Miss Jessie Lincoln, daughter of Robert T.

They were Samuel Chase, the recorder; Chief Deputy Nelson, Cashier Brown, 'Clerk Niehoff and the niffht watchman. The same decision will cause a revolution in the business methods in vogue te the county fee offices. Tot- supreme court holds that the heads «f the fee offices can only retain out of the receipts sufficient to pay to themselves the salaries allowed by law. The rest must be paid into the county treasury. Heretofore they have taken out of the receipt* of their office not only their own salaries but the payment for -all the help employed by them. They have made out their own pay-rolls and approved them, and have only made a report of what they have expended and the amount that is left over'to the county board once every six months^ Now they will have to make out their pay-rolls and submit them for"&pproval by the county board. FARES 'ON" STREET RAILWAYS. Important C;u*c to Come Cp Before a United ,SLia«w Circuit Court. Chicago, Nov. 11.— The United States circuit court here will soon be engaged In determining a legal battle which will ultimately decide how far state legislatures can go in controlling and regulating street railway fares. The outcome of the matter is of the utmost im- _portance to every municipality tn the country, for upon it will hinge the right to fix the maximum rate of charge after the grant of a franchise. In the courts the cage is known as" the city of 'Indianapolis against the Central Trust company, of New York. Generally It ig known as the fight over the 3-cent fare law which was passed in March, 1S97, by the Indiana state legislature:; Some of the important questions Involved are: Has the state the power to limit the amount of charges by railroad companies for the transportation of people within its own Jurisdiction T Is such a law, when applicable to only one locality, special legislation and a»' such obnoxious? Does the law complained of violate the state constitution of Indiana by creating a. new corporation under prohibited conditions? OB. questions of state statutes ' conflicting:' with state constitutions should the decision of the state supreme courts be final and controlling 1 ?' >'tttional League Philadelphia, Nov. 11.— The National League held a two holiw' session yesterday afternoon.
