Montreal, July 3. A section of Quebec province, lying north of the St. Lawrence and between Montreal anl Three Rivers, to the east. Is over-run with a pest that equals the dreaded Russian thistle in destroying the farmers" peace of mind. This pest is the mustard plant, which the French-Canadian farmers began to raise several years ago. In their (rardens. The tiny seeds were carried all over the section and multiplied with amailng rapidity. Now the fields of hay and grain are so clogged- with mustard that a yellow mantle seems t) have been shed over the land. Each year sees the pest growing greater, and this season especially, when taken In" connection with the light grom-th cf grain and hay, due to continued wet weather, mustard Is literally king of the fields. TRACED TO MONTREAL NEW YORK MURDER SUSPECT SAID TO BE IN CANADA Evidence 1b ths Mystery of the Unknown MutUated Body Being Slowly Probed - Alleged Strong Class New -York, July I. The World today says: Guilt of the murder, of 'William Guldensuppe was brought nearer home to Mrs. Nack and Martin Thorn yesterday. Reporters of the World In the Identical carriage In whlrh Mrs. Nack took her famous ride lat Fat-urday, followed the course of that journey. They discovered facts which Indicate that the party In the Surrey on Saturday consisted of Mrs. Nack, Thorn and another woman whose. Identity Is suspected. That to dispose of a portion of the body or of other Incriminating articles was the purpose of the drive. That on their way, at a secluded spot near the village of CltfT-slde, two miles below Fort Lee, they burned certain things, probably clothing which had been stained with blood. That from this place they could have gone, and probably did go to the spot near the Harlem river, at One Hundred and Seventy-sixth street, where on Sunday, the next day. the bundle which contained the second fragment of the body was found: that they then drove back towards their home, and were seen passing through One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street at high speed at about t o'clock. That the carriage was returned to Its owner at about .30 o'clock. Mrs. Nack and the other woman having left It at some point unknown. The horse and carriage were In a condition that Indicated a lone and hard drive. Traced to Montreal. The World, through Us correspondents and reporters, has traced Thorn from this city to Saratoga, thence to Troy and thence to Montreal, where he went with the avowed Intention of taking a steamer to Europe. Two steamers sailed from there Thursday. They will stop at Quebec and other points before getting beyond psllce reach. HELD UP A COP But Uw t Tramps got ths Worst of ths Deal Toronto, July 3. Five tramps struck Wexford Wednesday afternoon, arriving by a freight on the C. P. R. going east. They were of the most Impudent wriety, going from door to door and demanding meals and whatever they tcok a fancy to. They finally struck County Constable Sanderson, who was working In the field, and demanded money. The constable, with the help of neighbors, gathered them all In. and brought them to East Toronto, where they were remanded to Jail to await tbtir trial. They gave their names a James Dodson, Frank Johnson and Frank Huntley. HAS OHIO A VOLCANO ? Earth Cracks; Tress ar Swallowed; Smoke Pours From the Ground Chllllcothe. O.. July 3. Residents of Bainbrldge, this county, were thrown Into a state of panic last night by a series of volcanic eruptions In that vicinity. The disturbances were preceded by violent rumblings like thunder.after which the earth cracked and opened, swallowing small trees and shrubbery. Smoke came from the fissures In thick volumes and the people fled In terror, fearful that flames might burst forth, or the ground open and swallow them. These manifestations were also accompanied by a violent quaking of th-5 ground, which caused dishes and windows to rattle. The vibrations were perceptible ten miles away. The disturbances continued for several hours, and smoke was still pouring from the crevices to-day. An attempt was made to sound the depth of the r)ures, but. they appeared to be bottomless.

THE QUEEN WILL NOT ABDICATE-ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY'S SCHEME TO HEAD THE WHOLE ANGLICAN BODY. THE METROPOLIS DOFFING ITS JUBILEE ATTIRE. London, July X. The Jubilee functions are ended and London Is reluctantly doffing Us holiday garb. But the undressing apparently takes as long as the dressing. Carpenters are still slowly tearing down the stands. Most of the princes and special envoys have departed. The familiar belief in "Queen's weather," which has become a fixed t-uperstltlon, la almost justified by the remarkable weather which greeted every public appearance of Her Majesty and a surprising feature since the beginning of the festivities has been the many rainy days between them. More Than His Share. General Nelson A. Miles. U. S. A., has been a rather embarrasing element in the United States special mission and to the British government, as he iralsted upon taking more than thry intended him to do The government had provided rooms,' servants and a carriage at the Alexandria Hotel for Rear-Admiral J. N. Miller, U. 8. N.. and General Miles. But the 'invitation was not extended to their wives. Gen. Miles arrived first with his wife and occupied both rooms, leaving Admiral Miller the room the court officials had intended for the servants accompanying the two officers. Admiral Miller thereupon declined to remain at the hotel, and repaired to loda-ings In Half Moon street, where his family was Installed. The coort officials were greatly distressed and wished to take a suite of rooms at the Victoria Hotel for Admiral Miller, but the latter declined. Chamberlain's "Jam." The secretary of stat for the colonies, Mr. Joseph. Chamberlain, provided royalty with a new sensation on Wednesday. Wishing to have aa ovt whelming social show, Mr. Chamberlain took the late Sir Julian Gold-schmld's big house In Plccadllly.and invited 2.900 guests to a banquet and reception following it, all of whom apparently accepted, resulting In the greatest crush London remembers. The sudden bringing of eight or nine Hundred carriages into Piccadilly quite upset the police, and made an interminable Jam, In the midst of which the Prince and Princess of Wales drove op St. James street. The Prince rinding that the police were unable to Immediately clear his royal way, ordered his coachman to drive back to Marlborough House, and. for the first time In the life of Their Highnesses their progress to honor a commoner was barred. Inside the house the crush was terrible. Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain vainly tried to edge their way to the foot cf the stairs, In order to receive the Prince and Princess of Wales, and Mrs. Chamberlain's cha-firin at the failure of the Prince and Princess of Wales to arrive was very evident, and was made worse by the condolences of many present, who. wishing to go on to the reception of the Earl and Countess of Derby, were Dsolutely unable to leave the prem- Ises, as the continued arrivals for a long time prevented Ingress and egress Hundreds were unable to get in at all. and the Duke and Duchess of Tork were obliged to make their exit by way of the kitchen and the area steps. The fiasco is the talk of the town, and many bitter remarks are circulating In society. The old tories are delighted at what they call Mr. Chamberlain's bad breeding and want of taste, etc., and predictions are made that the Prince and Princes of Wales will never again accept their Invitations. The Anglican Headship. The United States and Canadian bishops are being royally entertained everywhere. Every bishop has more invitations to hospitality than he can possibly accept and the same is the case with Invitations to preach. The Archbishop of Canterbury received them all most cordially and Influences by the wholesale, It is reported In the press, are .being brought to bear In favor of the Archbishop of Canterbury's great scheme to obtain the adhesion of all the colonials, and of all the Americans. If possible, to such an acknowledgment of the Archbishop of 1 Canterbury's headship of the Church of England and its offshoots as to practically permit him, in a large measure, to control the internal affairs of such churches. The idea finds but little favor with the United States bishops but. some of the colonial bishops warmly advocate It. The question Is probably too broad a one to be decided offhand. Dr. M. E. L. Godkln, editor of The Evening Post of New York, has taken a house near Sheen for the season. WIU Not Abdicate. The sensational stories circulated by a New York newspaper regarding Queen Victoria's alleged blindness and her alleged Intention to abdicate In favor of the Prince of Wales' after the Jubilee festivities, which have Juft reached here by mail, are exciting great demlon among the few news- Continued on page A) WILL BEGIN MONDAY Tender Awarded for Extension to the Archbishop's Palace Everything Is now ready for the extension of the Archbishop's Palace on St. Patrick street, and work will commence Monday. The contract was signed last evening. Mr. Andre Chailebois of Ottawa, 1 the contractor to whom the work has been awarded, his tender being the lowest $10,577.

BE SERIOUS EOR CANADA A COAL STRIKE IN THE U.S. WOULD CRIPPLE US There Is not More Than Three Weeks' Supply of Coal In the Country- Bemlnlsoenoe of a Previous Strike Toronto, July J. Prominent coal dealers in this cley are anxious over the outlook induced by the bljr strlke of miners in the States. There is not more than three weeks coal supply in Canada. Hence the result would certainly be most serious if the strike should extend and production cease. Three years ago, in connection with the last strike, coal was at what was called famine prices. Nova Scotia coad had to be brought, to Toronto. The Grand Trunk ha not much coal ahead and the stocks of all railroads are at present very light. A Serious Aspect. Spring Valley. 111.. July . The strikers of this region have voted unanimously to obey the order of the National Board of the United Mine Workers of America to mine no more ccal after July 4. All employees of the companies whose wages rise and decline when the wages of the miners are affected have also been asked to come out. This means that all the trappers and even the cagers who have charge of the hoisting of cars will also come out. This puts a serious aspect upon the situation for If the mines are allowed to remain idle without the constant attention of the trappers It would not take long for them to cave. The miners of this city are very1 determined. They have had their wages reduced nearly 50 per cent, in the past fear years, and 78 cents a day is sbove the average. To-day the men will go in the mines, fix up their rooms and take out their tools, and say they will it main out until the operators concede their demands. All klhds of business in! the city will be more or less demoralized. ENQUIRY OPENED Investigation Into Ounner Dick's Aoddent HowOolng on Major Harris and Lleuts. H. A. Bliss and C. C.
