JAPAN has some big guns of the Canet ifcype. They have recently been subjected to the severest tests at Havre. Each round fired cost §3,000, $40,000 in all being spent for the purposes of the *est. These guns weigh sixty-six tons •«ach, are forty-one feet eight inches long- and throw a projectile the maximum weight of which is 1,034 pounds.

IP such an incident as that which occurred in Washing-ton, where a minister has •demanded his passports, had occurred In any other country on the face of the earth, the markets of the world would have i-elt the effects of it, and war clouds would have loomed up with -portentous aspect. As it is, the smell -fQf gunpowder is not very distinct, an,d nobody is very much excited. DOCTOKS, when ill, make the worst of ypastients. Sir William Thompson, one •> oif .the foremost of physicians of England, has been very ill for some time i : past, and made a most unruly patient. i'He woald not take his medicine for «. days together, and it was only by his •physician threatening to abandon his «ase that he reluctantly consented to -take the draughts prescribed. As THE the long litigation over the Tilden will now stands,two judg-es have -decided in favor of the clause making 'the magnificent bequest for a free library in New York city, and two judges V-tuuve declared against it. The case is shortly to be argued before the court of appeals, and it will then be known whether New York is to have the beue- •;-fit of a $5,000,000 library or not. A FIRE-HOSE supporter was successfully tried in ttaltimore a few days ago. It consists of an easily adjusted con- •fcrivance for holding the hose up over '<4he lines of'street cars so that travel is •an 110 way interrupted, no matter how •Song it requires the fire department to extinguish the tire. With this supporter in use, street cars and other vehicles . ssan move right on just the same as when •ao hose occupies the street.

Gilbert Wilks, a prominent farmef living near Davenport, went to town and called at the law office of Bills & liass, where he told Mr. Bills he was desirous of making his will. While the instrument was being drawn xtp Mr. Wilks, placing his hand over his heart complained of pain and finally he accepted the advice of Mr. Bills and went into the buck room and lay down on a sofa, A few minutes later Mr. Bills heard a noise and investigating it found the farmer in the throes of death. He was (W years of age and had lived in Iowa since 135(5. Tilled for Selling Oleomargiirlne. Foiir well-known merchants at Davenport were lined $50 each for handling olcomavgarino in violation of law. The complainant was State Dairy Commissioner T upper, who personally bought the imitation article. The merchants had been selling openly, having procured United States licenses. They had the original packages plainly marked, but they failed to label each particular package as required. The state law is concurrent with the national law, audit was under the former that the fines were imposed. Murdered for Ills 5Ioni>y. The body of W. S. Dooley, a wealthy farmer living »,t Sargent's Bluff, was found in the woods near his home. No clew was obtained as to the cause of his death aside from the bruises about j the head and face. Dooley had recently sold a lot of hogs and cattle, and went to Sioux City and drew his money. He indulged freely in liquor, and it was thought that he was followed when he started for home and murdered for his money. Her Broain Verified. ' John AVinslow. the 18-year-old son of I I. O.

They Fought with Hayforks. William Nolan, of Cresco township, quarreled with a young man named • Robert Bowman about hauling some ' hay and they fought with hayforks. Nolan was badly injured about the head and may not recover. Bowman was arrested, waived examination, and in default of bail went to jail to await the examination of the grand jury. i Suicide of a .Drummer. j Melville Hammond, aged ;J5 years, who traveled for the CJrinnell Cart Manufacturing Company, arrived in Des Moines and took a room at the Morgan house.

The State bank of Vinton was organized with a capital of SOS,000. Alexander Hilleary, of Union township, Des Moines county, died at the age of 8:3 years. Judge Baker and Dr. Howard under arrest in Fayetteville, Ark., are wanted in several counties in Iowa for swindling farmers out of large amounts. Hay and feed was so high in the neighborhood of Sioux City that farmers were selling their stock at any price rather than feed it. Thomas J. Kincaid, who built the first frame building in Sioux City, swallowed carbolic acid by mistake and died in a few hours. Rival real estate speculators at Sioux City propose to offer the government a site for the new post office free, in order to boom their holdings. Dozens of cattle, horses and hogs were dying of hydrophobia in Jh-itt. A mad dog ran amuck in that vicinity several weeks ago. The Boll clothing store at Davenport was burned out. It was owned by Max Weber, of Chicago. A stock of shoes owned by E. E. Murray & Co. was also destroyed. Loss, Slio.UOU; fully insured.

MAHIOJT, Ind., April 18.—A destructive wind and hailstorm swept the northern part of this city at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon. In that section are ten factories, not one of which escaped injury. The Crosby paper mill, a large frame building, was completely crushed and the machinery broken and dismounted. The Marion window- glass works and theSwezay & Johnson skewer works were partially unroofed and otherwise damaged. A number ol dwellings went down and trees and fences were leveled, while stables and outhouses were tumbled abont everywhere. Skylights and windows suffered severely from the hail. Several persons were injured, but none fatally. The path of the storm was narrow; buildings adjacent to the demolished paper mill were untouched, while others in the path of the storm were picked up, carried for a distance, and set down without apparent injury. A stable in which were several horses was taken from its foundation and carried several yards without injury to the animals. The lightning was wivid and struck in a number of places. The paper mill was set ablaze during the storm, but the flames were soon extinguished. Two severe thunderstorms followed soon after the hurricane. OLNKY, 111., April 18.—During a storm here lightning did considerable damage. William Sillsgowen's barn was struck. Isadore Bessie's large barn in the western part of the city was strtick and burned down. Loss, $1,000; partly insured. Harry Moore and a companion while coming into the city Were knocked off the wagon and the horse was knocked down. Moore was run over by the wagon and is not expected to live. Mr. Steffy's house was struck by lightning. JACKSOxvrLM, 111., April 18.—The east part of this (Morgan) county was visited Thursday evening by a cyclone which, fortunately, did but little damage. The usual funnel-shaped cloud appeared in the west and traveled in almost an easterly direction, veering slightly to the north. It generally rode high, dipping to the earth occasionally and tearing up trees and fences. One man with a load of hay was caught and used up pretty well. The wagon and contents were twisted around and around and pitchsd into a hedge in a twinkling, but, strangely enough, the man and horses were but littlo injured. LIBERAL, Kan., April 18.—Reports brought in Friday afternoon state that the courthouse at Hansford, Tex., in course of construction and nearly completed, was destroyed by a cyclone on Wednesday afternoon. A brickmason and another man were killed. Huff Wright, a citizen of the little town, was injured. Every house was more or less damaged. From there the cyclone traveled in a southeasterly direction to Paludora, a little town on the Beaver river, in Beaver county, O. T., which place is reported as entirely destroyed. Both localities are many- miles from railroad and telegraph, and this accounts for the lateness of the reports. Further particulars could not be learned. TRENTON, Mo., April 18.—William Hoffman, William Ferguson and Fred Stinson sought shelter from a storm under a tree. Lightning struck the tree, instantly killing Hoffman who was leaning against the tree. Ferguson had his hand on Hoffman's shoulder and was knocked senseless, falling face downward in a pool of water! Stinson was paralyzed below the knees but managed to pull Ferguson from the water and then crawled a mile to town for assistance, Ferguson is totally paralyzed and will die. The only mark on Hoffman was a blue spot in his forehead. CHICAGO'S NEW MAYOR. The Official Canvass Show* Hempgtciid Watihburue, the Republican Candidate, to Have lieeit Klectnd. CHICAGO, April 18.—The official canvass of the city election was completed Friday afternoon and Hempstead Washburne (rep.) for mayor has a plurality of 3(59 over Cregier. The canvassing board adjourned until Monday for the purpose of taking up tho large number of precinct returns which have been laid over for revision, and at that time Judge Prendergast will present proof of alleged republican frauds. If these proofs are of such a nature as to invalidate the election of mayor then the board may act, otherwise the certificate of election will go to Hempstead \Vash- burne. If the certificate of election is issued the only redress Mayor Cregier has is to go into the courts, but it is not likely that he will go into protracted and expensive litigation.

WASHINGTON, April 14. — President fiarrison left Washington on his south- fern and western trip Monday night The other members of the party who will live for the next thirtydays in the sumptuously-fitted cars that comprise the presidential train are Mrs. Harrison, Mrs. Dimmick, Mrs. McKee, Mr. and Mrs. Russell Harrison, Secretary Rusk, who will go as far as El Paso, Tex.; Postmaster General Wanamaker, Daniel M. Ransdell, marshal of the district of Columbia; E. F. Tibbett, executive clerks and several railway men and journalists. KOANOKK, Va., April 15.—The train bearing the presidential party, which left Washington at midnight, arrived at Roanoke at 8:50 o'clock a. m. Tuesday. As the train nearcd the city people who had been apprised of its coming stood along the tracks and on cars and fences and cheered a welcome. Then a cry of "Speech, speech," was sent up and the president, leaning on the railing of the platform, made a few remarks touching the increarsing prosperity of Virginia. The speech was received with much enthusiasm, and, as the train drew out of the station, more cheers were given. KNOXVILLB, Tenn., April 15.—The town of Radford acknowledged the honor of the president's visit in a cordial way. Many of the inhabitants were assembled at the station, and they cheered the president heartily. Ho went out on the back platform and shook hands with all within reach. A great crowd was found massed in the station at Bristol, and a committee from that city headed by Judge Harvey Wood boarded the train and escorted the president to a high bluff, where he was introdttced to the people. The president made an address. The residents of the enterprising city of Knoxville turned out en masse to do honor to the president and his cabinet officers. A public reception was held and' Col. W. A. Henderson delivered an address of welcome, to which the president responded. ATLANTA, Ga., April 16.—The trip from Chattanooga to Atlanta was made over the Western & Atlantic road. There were many historical points along the route. These included the battlefields of Chickamauga, the Tunnel Hill, Rcsaca, Dug Gap, Kenesaw and Peach Tree Creek. Short stops were made at each of these places and the president shook hands with a large number of people. Shortly after leaving Chattanooga the president was informed of the death of Mrs. Halford, the wife of his private secretary. He at once sent a telegram of condolence to Mr. Halford. Amid a tumult caused by the concerted blowing of thousands of steam whistles the presidential train entered Atlanta exactly on time, reaching the depot at :!:30 o'clock. President Harrison stood on the platform of the rear coach as the train rolled into the depot, bowing in acknowledgment of the welcome with which he was greeted. When the train stopped Gov. Northeu with a large delegation of citizens advanced to receive the party. The governor on being presented to the president said: "I am glad to welcome your excellency to the state of Georgia. 'YOU will find among us a loyal and hospitable people, and in their name I welcome you to the state." Replying, the president said it gave him great pleasure to visit the Empire state of the south. The presidential party were then driven around the city. The party went to the state capitol at 7 o'clock, where the president was given a public reception.

MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 18.—The pres- dential train arrived in this city on schedule time and was greeted at the station by an immense assemblage of paop'i;, who cheered the party enthusiastically. At the cotton exchange an address of welcome was delivered by Mayor Clapp aud responded to by the president, who referred to the development of the Mississippi valley and the great opportunities ottered the people of that section by the improved commercial relations with other parts of the continent. He urged the propriety of increased attention to the manufacture, here in the great cotton- field, of the cotton into cloth, thus adding to the industry and profits of the people. He referred with especial pleasure to the opportunity given him to shake hands with the people, saying that it was a pleasure to him to shake the hands of men who, although they fought on the confederate side during the war, are now as loyal and true to the country as any. LITTLE ROOK, Ark., April 18.—The presidential train arrived in Little Rock at 5:45 o'clcck Friday evening.

State* and Terrl- torlAg Send Representatives—A hotter from President Harrison. KANSAS CITV, Mo., April 15.—The first western states commercial congress convened at noon Tuesday at the Coates opera house, With delegations present from the following twenty-four western and southern states and territories: California, Washington, Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas and Oklahoma. Tho delegations are composed mainly of business men appointed by the governors of the various states and are representative of the western and southern people. The convention was called to order by State Senator Kelly of Kansas, who was chosen temporary chairman. The chairman then presented Gov. Francis, of Missouri, who welcomed the delegates on behalf of the state. An adjournment was then taken until 2 o'clock p. m. Upon reassembling letters of regret were read from those who' had been given special invitations to attend the congress. Among the number was a letter from President Harrison. It says; "A public discussion of tho conditions affect Ing agricultural and, business prosperity cannot but be helpful, if It is conducted, on broad, lines and. Is hospitable to differences of opinion. The extraordinary developments of production of agriculture which has t»ltcn place in recent periods In this country by reason of the rapid enlargement of the area of tillage, under the favoring laws of the United. States, very naturally has called attention to the value, and indeed tho necessity, of larger markets. I am one of those who believe that a home market is necessarily the best market for the producer, as it measurably emancipates him, in proportion to its nearness) from the exuctiona of the transportation companies. If the farmer could deliver his surplus produce to the consumer out of his farm wagon his independence and his profits would bo larger aud surer. It seems to me quite possible to attain a largely increased market for our staple farm products without impairing the home market by opening the manufacturing trades to a competition in which foreign producers paying a lower scale of wages would have the advantage. A policy that would reduce the number of our people engaged In mechanical pursuits or diminish their ability to purchase food products by reducing wages cannot be helpful to those now engaged in agriculture. Tho farmers Insist that the prices of farm products have been too low, below the point of fair living and fair profits. I think so too, but I venture to remind them that the plea they make involves tho concession that things may be too cheap. A coat may bo too cheap as well as corn. The farmer who claims a good living and profits for his work should concede the same to every other man and woman who tolls. "Persistent and earnest efforts are also being made and a considerable measure of success has already been attained to secure the removal of restrictions which we have regarded as unjust, upon the admission and use of our meats and live cattle ic some of tho European countries. I look with confidence to a successful termination of 1 he pending negotiations, because I cannot but assume that when the absolutely satisfactory character of the sanitary inspections now provided by our law is made known to these foreign states they will promptly relax their discriminating regulations. No effort and none of tue powers vestedin the executive will be left unused to secure an end which is so desirable. "Your deliberations will probably also embrace the consideration of the question of the volume and character of our currency. It would not be possible and would not be appropriate for mo in this letter to enter upon any elaborate discussion of these questions. One or two things I will say, and first, I believe that every person who thought fully considers the question will agree with me upon a proposition which is at the base of all my consideration of the currency question, namo.'y that any dollar, paper 01 coin, that is Issued by the United StateJ must be made and kept in its commercial uses as good as any other dollar. So long as any paper money issued or authorized by the United States government is accepted in comm srcial use as the equivalent of the best coined dollar, whether of silver or gold, Is assured of an equal value In commercial use,' there need be no fear as to an excess of money. The more such money the better. "But, on the other hand, when any Issue ol paper or coin dollars is in buying and selling rated at a less value than other paper or coined dollars, we have passed the limit of safe experiment in finance. If we have dollars of different value, only the poorest will circulate. The farmer and the laborer, who are not in hourly touch with the ticker or the telegraph, will require above all other classes of our community, a dollar of full value. Fluctuations and depreciations are always at the first cost oj those Classes of our community. The banker and (speculator anticipate discount and always profit by such fluctuations. It is very easy under the impulse of excitement or the stress of money stringency to fall into the slough of depreciated or irredeemable currency. I'i is very painful and slow business to get out when once in. "I Uave always believed and do now more than ever believe in bimetallism and favor the fullest use o: silver In connection with our currency that is compatible with the maintenance of the parity of the gold and silver dollar in their commercial uses. Nothing, in my judgment, would so retard the restoration of the free use of silver by the commercial nations of the world as legislation adopted by us that would result iii placing this country upon a basis of silver monometallsm. The legislation adopted by the first session ot the Fifty-first congress, I was assured by lea-ling advocates of froe coinage and representatives of the silver states, would promptly and permanently bring silver to $1.39 per ounce and keep it there. That anticipation has not been realized. Our larger use ot silver has apparently and for reasons not yet agreed upon diminished the demand for silver in China and India. "I have not before, excepting in an official way, expressed myself on these subjects; but feeling the interest, dignity and importance of the assemblage in whose behalf you speak, I have ventured without bigotry ol opinion, without any assumption ot infallibility but as an American citizen having % most earnest desire that every individual and every public act of my life shall conduce to the glory of our country and the prosperity of all our people, to submit these views for your consideration.

The Premier'* StfttoiH#nt of the Mnfla Mtiga to the Italian Chamber of I)epu» ties -He Still InMst on Thlg Govern' inent'a responsibility, but Expresses Confidence in Its Final Action— His fto. marks of a Most Pnolflc Nature. ROME, April l7.~~Mr. Elaine's letter to Sig. Imperial! was brought before the chamber of deputies Thursday on a question from one of the opposition deputies, addressed to the Marqviis di Rudini, premier and minister of foreign affairs, as to what action the government would take in view of the note. The premier rose, amid the cheers of the government members. He spoke briefly, the substance of his remarks being as follows: Ho declared with some show of vehemence that the Italian government would insist on tho United States assuming responsibility for acts committed within the jurisdiction of tho several states. Italy know not tho state of Louisiana nor any other commonwealth in the union, but must look to tho federal government, which was tho treaty-making power, for redress in swell a case as the Now Orleans lynching. The question presented by this case, the premier continued, was one which concerned every civilized government in Europe a^ much as It did Italy. ICbeers.l IT Europeans domiciled 1n tho United States were not assured the protection guaranteed them by treaty with that power because such convention conflicted with the agreement between federal government and the state in which a violation of the treaty chanced to occur, then of what value or purport was the treaty? What European government could outer into treaty relations with the United States and be assured of their being preserved? So far us Italy was concerned it would never abandon. tho position taken at the start, thut the United States must assume full responsibility for the outrage perpetrated on Italian subjects at New Orleans. [Cheers.] Continuing the premier said his government had no feur of political or other difficulties with tho United States. Its regret was that so highly civilized a country should fail in the fulfillment of its duties to the cause of justice and morality. In conclusion Marquis dl Rudini gave expression to the hopo that notwithstanding tho occurrence of some incidents which were greatly to be regretted In tho controversy between Italy and America, means of conciliation honorable to .both countries would be found. In the course of his reply to tho interpella- tions the premier said that on learning of tho certainty that four of the lynched men were Italians the Italian government immediately directed the attention of the United States government, to the matter and received from that government satisfactory assurances. which were aftarwards personally conllrmod by Mr. Porter, the United States minister. The premier then read tho telegram which President Harrison sent to tho governor ot the state of Louisiana March 18, and added that the Italian government, like President Harrison, demanded that the guilty parties bo brought to justice and that indemnity bo granted to the families of the victims. As tho action of the United States, continued tho premier, had not corresponded with its promises, tho Italian government was constrained to demand a formal assurance that the guilty parties should bo denounced and that the title to Indemnity should be admitted in principle. Tho United States government, however, failed to give this assurance, replying that the constitution of the United Status did not permit the federal government to interfere in state aHairs. Tho premier then proceeded to give a detailed account of the negotiations between the Italian and American governments, ending with tho order to Baron Fava to take his departure on leave of absence, seeing thut he had proved the futility ol diplomatic action. Tho Marquis Irapei-lull was instructed to state that the incident would not be closed until the federal government had explicitly declared that legal proceedings against the lynchers would be promptly begun. A correspondent called upon Marquis di Rudini and asked him if it was possible for him to give an opinion for publication in regard to the reply of tho United States secretary of state, Mr. Blame, to the marquis' last note on the subject of the New Orleans lynching. In reply Marquis di Rudini said in substance that the cabled summaries of Mr. Elaine's reply which had been sent to Rome and which he had seen in the public press of this city were too brief and otherwise inadequate to enable him to form definite opinions, much less give an opinion for publication, even if he felt justified in adopting the latter course of action. The marquis added that he preferred not to say anything further while awaiting the receipt of the full text of Mr. Elaine's reply except that he was now and had always been sincerely desiroxis of- a friendly solution of the difficulties at present existing between the Italian government and the government of the United Stutcs. Marquis di Rudini is well disposed toward the United States government, and a satisfactory settlement of the dispute will certainly be found. Mar- qnis di Rudini will do all he can to bring this about. The premier was not well informed concerning the status of Italian emigrants in the United States, when this complication was suddenly thrust upon him and demanded a sudden action on his part us the official guardian of Italy's interests and Italy's subjects ill all its foreign relations; and the hasty protest which the occasion made imperatively necessary left him no time to become acquainted with the peculiar details of the situation before opening communications with Mr. Blaine. Almost immediately an exhaustive memorandum was placed in Marquis di Rudini's hands, emanating from an Italian source, explaining the circumstances and possilities of tho case, and probably to this in some measure may have been attributable the changes which have been made in the tone of his later demands upon the United States government. At the same time an interpellation on the international aspect of the New Orleans affair was sent to the president of the chamber of deputies. All intelligent and unbiased Italians look upon the affair with patience and common sense. at JPeoi-ia, m. PEOJUA, 111..
