Faur'e, the president of the.repub- lic, during the fetes at Havre in horiof of his visit to that city. .. i President Faure represented one of the districts of Havre m the 'chamber of deputies previous to his clectiori'to the chief magistracy of the 1 republic.; The president is also a ship owner of Havre and a member of its chamber of commerce, of which body he.wasior- murly president. During the Franco-Prussian war he commanded a battalion of volunteers from Havre and led them to Paris, where he took part in the suppression of th". commune. Naturally tho inhabitants of Havre have been looking forward to the president's visit to their city with considerable pleasure and a number of elaborate fetes have been organized in order to show the esteem in which he is held in his electorate. IViitchlne tho Would-Be AtHnnsIn. According to the Petit Journal an anarchist known as "Petit Bordeaux," a man of a type similar to Casero, the murderer of President Carnot, and Ruvachol, the anarchist who was executed after havinc" been convicted ol being concerned in dynamite outrages, left London recently on his way to Havre in order to assassinate President Faure. Petit Bordeaux, who is a deserter from the, French army, was watched by the London, police and by the French detectives detailed to keep an eye on anarchists in London. Consequently his departure from London was promptly signaled to the police of Paris and of Havre. The authorities of these two cities and elsewhere are taking the most active precautions in order to protect the president from injury. Infernnl MnclLinc* Discovered. Whether the story is true it would seem certain at least that the anarchists have recommenced operations, for two infernal machines were found in this city Wednesday. The first was found in the Rue St. Simon and contained a number of loaded cartridges: 'the second was found on the Esplanade des luvalides and consisted of a cylinder charged with dynamite.

The listof active pall-bearers was made tip of old employes of the papers to the acquirement of which the deceased had given the best part of his life. The honorary pall bearers were taken, ••from the ra.iiKs of men who are prominent in ' public life. Rev. Ernest M. Stii-cs, rector of Grace church, conducted the services, and Rev. Frank W. Gunsaulus made an address, in which the public spirit and sterling qualities of the dead man were •lauded. As the funeral cortege passed the church the chimes rang out the music of several hymns. The burial was private in the family lot at, Graceland. Besides nearly every club of any importance in Chicago, numerous other organizations sent delegations to the funeral, among them being the elks, and the Chicago Typographical union. Great crowds lined the line of march of the funeral procession, which was one of the long' est ever seen in this city. ON THE UP GRADE. SIMPLY DEVILISH.

WASHINGTON", April JS.—From advices received at the office of the commissioner of internal revenue it is beliex'ed that about 110,000 persons have filed income tax returns with"district-col- lectbrs.' Earlier indications gave good basis for the expectation that between 250,000 and .'100,000 returns would be filed. Over 000,000 blanks were sent out. The decision of the supreme court is responsible fqr the shrinkage. Possibly 10 or 15 per cunt of the 110,000 persons making returns will be exempt from payment of taxes. The law requires reports on incomes above 53,500, but taxation begins at the 54,000 mark. The sections of country containing cities of the third class and of less importance send in returns from about 1 in every SOO to 1,000 inhabitants. In some of the richer communities the ratio runs down to 100 to 1. The number, of actual payers of income tax will I probably approximate 100,000, o.nd at S100 each, which is considered a very liberal estimate under existing conditions, the total revenue to be .derived from tuat source will not exceed S10,- 000,000. If it is 75 per cent, of §10,000,000 the government wjll be fortunate. Wo»t of the Depreitlou Over.
