Washington, Dec. 2.—The comparative statement of the government receipts and expenditures shows that the total receipts for the month of November. 1897. were $43,363,605, of which $18.194,- 6iS was received from the reorganization committee of the TTnion Pacific railroad, making the ordinary receipts for the month $25.1GS,»S7. The total expenditures for November were $37,- S10.S3S, of which $4,349,36S was cash in the Union Pacific sinking fund turned into the treasury and repaid to the appropriation from which it had been originally drawn for investment. Hence the month's disbursements include thla sum. The ordinary receipts for the month therefore were $25,168,987 and the ordinary disbursements $33,261,470, leaving a deficit of $8,092,483. Excess of Out-Go Over Income. The receipts from customs were $9,830,025, a falling off of about $100,000 as compared wifTi November, 1S96. The receipts from internal revenue were $13,530,649, a gain of about $430.000 for' the month. The excess of expenditures over receipts for the five months of the present fiscal year, independent Of the proceeds of the sale of the Union Pacific railroad, was S4S.101.494. The government has received another payment of $6,100,000 on account of the Union Pacific sale, which still leaves due from the committee $o4,15;!,60n to be paid in four equal installments, the last on Jan. C. 1SOS. Condition of the Public Debt. The December statement of the public debt shows that at the close of business Nov. 30, 1S97. the public debt, less ca?h in the treasury, amounted to 51,- 0(19,22G.4CO, a dei-iv:isi' since Oct. 30 of $n,33S,12.~i. This di-c-rease is accounted for by an increase in the cash due to the deposit of an installment uf the proceeds of the sale of the government's interest in the Union Paciric. But for this transaction the cash in the treasury would have been 5771,450 less than last month. The cash in the treasury is classified a? follows: Gold, $194.089,260; silver, $n07.6j6,s.S2: paper, $105,756,181; bonds, disbursing officers' balances, etc., $38,907,251. Total, $840.400,076, against, which there are demand liabilities amounting to $625.74.'.516, leaving the net cash balance $220.603,559. SAFKTV APPLIANCES ON RAILWAYS. F.omls and Kinployes Represented Before tho Interstate Commerce Commission. Washington. Dec. 2.—Hearings regarding an extension of time 10 railways to equip their cars with life-saving appliances began yesterday before the in- trestate commerce commission, a number of railway representatives being present, together with the chiefs of the various railway labor unions. John K, Cowen, a receiver of the Baltimore and Ohio, was the chief speaker for the railways. The single question presented to the commission, he argued, was the method and extent of the extension, because unless an extension was granted interstate commerce must cease. He urged that the extension be for five years, with provision for an equipment of one-fifth of the cars each year, thus working up to full and complete compliance. He further said It would cost from $40,000,000 to $50,000,000' for the railroads to comply with the law. This money must be earned. If the commission declined an extension the roads would be absolutely unabLa to equip their cars out of their own. resources. The cost, he said, must come out of the wages of the employes if the roads were to be driven beyond their financial ability. P. H. Morrissey, representing generally the railway employes' unions, said that the associations for which he appeared were a unit in protesting against any such "unreasonable extension" as had been proposed. Five years, he said, would render the purpose of the law nugatory. During the past five years 2.000 railroad men have been killed annually and between 20,000 and 25,000 injured. OC these casualties 60 per cent, were directly attributable to the two evils this law was designed to correct. He replied rather heatedly to the intimation of wage reduction thrown out by Cowen. "I speak in no defiant spirit." said he, "but I want to say that when the question of a reduction of wag.es is presented to us we will meet it." He insisted that the maximum extension must not exceed a year. The hearing closed with a somewhat sensational exchange between Cowen and Jlorrissey. Cowen in closing warmly repudiated the idea that Gompers or Morrissey in any way represented the employes of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. Those employes, he declared, had no; been consulted, and he resented the quiet assumption of the labor leaders that they represented the workers en the road. He warned the commission against the humanitarian view urged by these gentlemen. The perils of the new appliances he said had not been established. Statistics on his road showed that they killed more, but maimed less than the old system. In a business matter, he said with some temper, it was always dangerous to yield to alleged humanitarian considerations. He used no veiled irony In his references to Morrissey's assumption o£ authority. The latter jumped to his feet when Cowen sat down. He had tried, he to occupy a diffniflt<S_ »ttltuAl fhroug'nout the hearing. He Old not Hesire to give offense, and he had main- taintd silence while the statements at the i-jpresentatives of the railroads were being made, but he said he deemed it his duty to reply to the insinuation of Cowen that he did not represent the railway trainmen. He refused to be discredited, and he denied that he had assumed authority not invested in him. Eighty-five per cent, of the employes of tfie Baltimore and Ohio road, he said -.v-.-e members of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and at the Toronto convention last year he had unanimously been empowered to state the position of its members to the interstate commerce commission. Every division of the Baltimore and Ohio had been represented at the convention. "I said the question of a year's extension had never been presented to the employes of the Baltimore E^nd Ohio." interrupted Cowen. "and I repeat it." "The Toronto convention." retorted Morrissey. "voted against any extension." He then explained further that he had appealed to the convention not to tie his; hands, but to leave him free to use his judgment, and that discretion had been accorded him. KURAL POSTAL FRKK DELIVERY. Hint, to Farmers as to How They Can Help It To Be successful. Washington, Dec. 2. — Acting Postmaster General Perry S, Heath has issued the following circular regarding the rural postal free delivery: "The ultimate success of the experiment of free delivery of mail which is now being tried by direction of congress in fifty rural districts of the United States will depend largely upon the promptness with which the carriers can make their deliveries to the'patronson their route's. This will be greatly facilitated if those desiring to take advantage of rural free delivery will erect suitable boxes by the foa'd side in. which carriers may deposit mails a's they pass, and from which they may collect the mails intended for transmission. "The time which would otherwise be consumed by carriers in reaching residences some distance back from the road will thus be saved, the service will be rendered more efficient, its cost will be reduced and the probability of its becoming a permanent feature of postal administration will be increased." SIX FIRMS BURNED OUT. Fire at Sr. T-ouis Costs the Sufferers $300,000— Well Insured. St. Louis, Dec. 2.— Fire was discovered in the F. O. Sav.-yer & Co. paper factory on Locust near Third street at 3:30 yesterday afternoon, and within an hour the establishment was in ruins and a number of adjoining buildings were badly damaged. The general loss is estimated at over $200.000. Just how the fire started is not known, the flames sudderly bursting from the building. It conta|ned highly ir.liammable material and' was soon a roaring furnace, the fire communicating across the narrow street to the "eonomic bindery plant, the Young-McKinney Printingcompany, the Missouri Engraving company, the Wooclward-Tiernan Printing company and the Higgens Map Printing company. A general alarm had been turned in, but the network of wires and the narrowness of Locust street at the spot prevented the firemen from getting actively at work at the seat of the fire. There were- 100 employes in the paper factory, but all made their escape in safety. All the losers were_well insured. TWO HUNDRED~AND FIFTY POISONED. Patients In a Hospital Made Sicfc by Something in tli*- Kootl. Rallipolis. O., Dec. 2.— Two hundred and fifty patients at the Epileptic jios- pital were poisoned yesterday by toxic poisoning, it is presumed. Dr. Rutter and his corps of physicians succeeded only after a desperate fight in checking the outbreak without a fatality. As it is *ome of the patients are still in a critical condition. Dr. Butter is not apprehensive, however, believing that he will be able to allay the evils of the poisoning. The presumption among the hospital physicians is that the infection came from some article of food eaten by the patients, and the bacteriological department is making a rigid analysis of the food cooked during the past few days. Some think a deleterious drug was placed in some of the victuals and that, with the disruption extant at the institution over the wholesale discharge of employes, has put the institution in the throes of great excitement. The poison is similar to that which happens occasionally from eating ice cream that has bred toxic poison. Wants to Make This Ghost Walk. Jackson, Mich., Dec. 2.— Delfred W. Gould, a railroad engineer, who has been supposed to be dead for the last five years, is in jail here charged by his wife with non-support. Five years ago, it is said, while he was in Minneapolis and his wife was in Chicago, he left his clothing on the river, where it was found and his wife was notified of his death. Two months later a corpse supposed to he his was found, but it was beyond recognition. He was arrested at Tecumseh. where he had been running an engine for tin? Lima and Northern Railway company. Another Chicago Wife Slayer. Chicago, Dec. 2.— Albert Dolyse, a blacksmith, shot and killed his wife yesterday during a quarrel. The two had not lived happily for some time and just before the shooting had been engaged in one of their periodical domestic rows. Dolyse and his wife lived not far from the house in which Chris Merry murdered his wife ten days since. a "Church liis'ufknce Lansing, Mich., Dec. 2.— The National Church Mutual Fire Insurance company, of Lisbon, la., of which the Rev. D. S. Fouse is president, has been seeking by circulars sent all over the state to induce the Michigan clergymen and church officers to act as its agents, and has thus enlisted the services of many of them. Insurance Commissioner Campbell has issued an open letter warning; the public that the company- is doing a fraudulent business In the «U.te. ......

Already reseruing the German jubilations and illuminations of clubs and beer halls over the fall of Count Badeni, the Czech population ivas still further incited by the speech of the Czech burgomaster delivered Monday night to the town council. Two special sufferers from the riots are Baron von Aehren- thal, a representative of the German land owners in the reichsratb, and Count von Salm. Baron von Aehren- thal's place is on the Wensel-PIatz. The mob smashed the windows and tore out the window frames on the ground floor Tuesday night. Similar outrages were committed at Count von Salra's plac«, which is the editorial office of the German paper Bohemia. During the night the Aehrenthal plac« was boarded up. but the rioters soon removed the planks and threw large stones into the luxuriously furnished rooms, smashing' valuable objects of art anl costly furniture. Damage to tha amount of many thousands of florins has been done to German firms, clubs and other institutions having German proprietors or patrons. Xo performance was given at the German theater last night. The constant cry of the rioters was "Down with the Germans!" "Down with the Jews!" Ladies venturing on the street were obliged to wear the f"'av trl-color in order to avoid be- inj ; :acked. German sign boards were hastiiy removed by their owners and replaced wiih Czech inscriptions. Xo- body dared to utter a word In German. The Kinsky palace was plundered of its furniture, which was thrown through the -windows, heaped in the street and set on fire, the rnob preventing the fire brigade from approaching. The 'Wensel- PIatz. where the revolution of 1848 began, has been the chief center »f excitement- It is about sixty yards in width and 750 yards in length, and win hold 100.000 people. The police and the military have made 200 arrests and it is reported that altogether eighty persons have been injured. At the United States consulate the American flag was hoisted. It a said that the riots were organized bya«e«ret •ocietr.aniuu.ted by.

Prague, Bohemia. Dec. '2.— There were fresh disturbances here yesterday. The | houses of Germans were bombarded with stones, and a howling mob which gathered on Wensel-PIatz had to be dispersed by infantry and cavalry. The university buildings are threatened by the rioters, and have to be protected by large bodies of police. Troops have been drafted to Judenstadt, owing to the mob threatening to run riot there. During the afternoon the riots increased. The synagogue windows were smashed and the windows of the houses of Jews displaying German trade signs in several streets of the Jewish quarter. After 6 o'clock in the evening the streets were held by twelve battalions of infantry and a squadron of hussars. All traffic was suspended and the shops and business houses were closed. Czechs Plunder tlije Geriuni^QuarbJr. In spite of the niUTtarf 1 a large Czech mob made a descent during the evening upon the German quarter and plundered houses and shops In several streets. The furniture of a well-known German cafe was piled up in the street and 'set 011 fire. When a detachment of troops approached to disperse the rioters the soldiers were greeted with showers of stones, broken glass and other missiles. The officer in command ordered his troops to prepare to fire, but at the urgent request of a police official the order was not carried into effect, Shortly after? o'clock a mob attempted to storm a cartridge factory at Ziszhcow, a suburb of Prague on the other side of Moldau. The troops stationed at the factory poured a volley into the crowd. Two Persons Killed by the Volley. It is known that at least two persons were killed outright, and it is feared that others were killed or wounded. The same body of rioters set fire to a house at Ziszhcow, but the flames were soou quenched- In various other parts of the city and the suburbs windows were smashed and German signboards demolished. It is said that the mob was incited by articles in the Czech newspapers and by a false report that the German students had organized an attack upon the Czech national theater. At a late hour threatening crowds made repeated rushes and attempted to storm the G&rman newspaper offices, but by 11 o'clock the town was quiet and the troops had been withdrawn except patrols at threatened points. In Smichow. the southwest suburb of Prague and a thickly populated Industrial quarter, at a late hour In the evening a riotous mob attacked and plundered the German national school. Uioten. Fire on Hie Police. The riotars fired shots at the police detachment which arrived on the scene to disperse them, whereupon the commanding officer, acting- with grea 1 : promptitude, drew his revolver and fired at om- of the ringleaders, the bullet piercing his arm. He then arrested the man. and the result of this energetic action was the dispersal of the mob without much further difficulty. The German gymnasium in the Altstaedter- Ring. in the center of the city, wasplun- flererl by a mob which was finally dispensed by a combined charge of soldiers and police.

Condemned jr.nrderer's Confession COM- tinueii Disputed— Case oi Hi» Mistresn. New York. Dec. 2. — When SherrtC Dohl went to see Martin Thorn yesterday morning the condemned prisoner said he had no appetite for breakfast, but he felt that a big load was off Ms mind. Thorn did not talk as though h» had any hope of getting a new trial. He supposed, he said, he would have to make up his mind to meet the worst. Mrs. Xack spent a restless night, being evidently much affected by the conviction of Thorn. When she heard of the verdict she wept and expressed sorrow for her former lover, although she says her conscience is relieved. It is understood that Mrs. Nack will be arraigned in court this week, when her counsel, Emanuel Friend will in her behalf enter a plea of guilty of manuslaughter in the first degree and that the district attorney will accept the plea. In doin^ this Youngs would be recognizing Mrs. Xack's action in turning state's evidence at the first trial. Lawyer Howe denied In strong terms the statement that Thorn, after his conviction Tuesday, confessed the killing and dismemberment of Guldensuppe. Howe expressed his belief that tha court of appeals would reverse the verdict. Police Captain Methven, Of Long Island City, said yesterday: "There are some discrepancies in the published report of Thorn's confession, but the mala facts remain unchanged. Thorn made part of the confession to me and part to Sheriff Dohl. From what Sheriff Dobl told me. I can truthfully say that TboM* confessed that he killed Guldensuppe." Financier Spuldlngf Sentenced, Chicago. Dec. 2.— Charles Warrea Spalding. ex-president of the defunct Glo'oe Savings bank,' must serve an indefinite sentence in the penitentiary tor the embezzlement of $28,000 worth Of bonds belonging to the University Of Illinois. This was the opinion handed down by Judge Horton yesterday morning when he denied the ex-banker a new trial. Spalding protested that; th« sentence was unjust, and declared that he had never wronged any man In hll» lift. Spalding's sin according to th« judgment was that of depositing bonds belonging to the University of Illinois as personal collateral for himself. He had these bonds as treasurer of tbe'u»l- Crt«*« to Work Over Eight HOQTV.
