NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—The Herald's Valparaiso correspondent telegraphs as follows: Ex-President Balmaceda, of Chili, shot himself through the temple in his room at the Argentine legation in Santiago at 8:30 a. m. Saturday. It now seems that Balmaceda left Santiago oil Aug. 10 in the hope of making his escape from Chili, but seeing that every avenue of retreat was cut off, he returned there on Sept. 2 and went direct to the Argentine legation. After the disastrous battle near Valparaiso and Th<> Surrender of .SiuUhig-o, on Aug. 29, in company with ex-Alcalde Victor Echanren, he took a carriage and drove to a point two miles outside the city. Here a special train of one car and a locomotive was in waiting. The train went at high speed as far as Linderos. forty-live miles south of Santiago. There more carriages were in waiting. Hurriedly alighting from the train they entered the carriages and were again driven rapidly away. The route was toward San Antonio bay. All trace of the fugitives was, however, lost. His intention had been to go on board the vessel Condell, whjch he expected to find lying in San Antonio bay. Upon arriving there, however, he discovered to his chagrin that the Torpedo Uont Had Sailed. Since his return to the Argentine legation in Santiago, Balmaceda had been in an extremely nervous condition. No one, with the exception of the minister of the Argentine Republic and one other man who was devoted to the unfortunate ex-president's cause, was permitted to talk to or even see him. All the different schemes of flight were considered by the hunted ex-president. Senor Urri- buria had a long and earnest talk with Balmaceda relative to thelatter's ideas, previously broached, about the advisability of giving himself up to the junta, Balmaceda and Senor Urriburia wem to bed at midnight. Benor Urriburia about 8 o'clock a. in.. Hoard :v Pistol Shot in the bedroom that had been assigiiei to Balmaceda. She notified her husband Upon breaking in the door of Balma ceda's rooju he found that he had shot himrelf. The body was still warm. I Theic was a gaping wound in the temple. The body was undressed and lay on the bed. The revolver was i-:till held WILL INTEREST FARMERS. Some A»tf>tu>t1li)gr Fact* lletfftrdlnfif tlie European Shortage in HreudKlulTrt. NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—An exhaustive study of the world's food supply, in the forthcoming number of The American Agriculturist, emphasizes facts of grave inportance to both America and Europe, [t declares that the half has not been iold about tho European shortage in breadstuff s, which not even a bountiful crop this year would have relieved. Continental powers, especially Rut-da, suppress the facts so far as possible. In many Russian piymnces the scarcity of food became pronounced as far back as February last. Accepting the largest estimates of production, both at home and abroad, and even assuming that the United States and Canada can export 225,000,000 bushels, there is a deficit in the world's food supply of at least 200,000,000 bushels of wheat and rye, with a possibility of tlie shortage i:f!lii£ Tv.-ic.o as Great. Added to this is the almost total failure of the potato crop in Ireland, and a serious curtailment in the yield of potatoes on the continent. Even with the utmost economy of distribution anil an unheard of consumption of American maize, grave distress is before the masses of Europe. Enormous exports of wheat and flour from the United States in August prove that Europe regards the situation as worse than it has j r et been painted. For the first time in years wheat, bran and middlings are exported to Europe thus early in the season. These circumstances are accepted as the strongest possible reason for believing that prices of wheat are today naturally low. It looks for a sharp advance in all cereals as soon as the demand realizes the limited extent of the world's actual supply. Every bushel of high grade wheat is today worth fully one dollar on the farm where it grows. CANDIDATES CHOSEN, NEW YORK DEMOCRATS AND MASSACHUSETTS REPUBLICANS MEET, Boswcll I'.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.—Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British minister, has officially called the attention of the United States to a violation of the trains of tho modus vivendi in effect between the two countries, as to the catch of seals in Bearing sen. By the agreement be- tAveen the tAVo countries the North American Commercial company, which leases tho seal islands from the United States, was restricted in the catch of seals this year to 7,500 skins. It is alleged that the Commercial company has exceeded this catch, thus violating the modus vivendi, and the British government has called the United States to account for it. Special Agent Williams, of the treasury department has made a special report on this branch, of the seal question to the treasury department and his report has been forwarded to the state department Avith the request that its contents be laid before the foreign office in London. The contents of Agent Williams report cannot be ascertained, but it ia understood that he makes the admission that the North American Commercial company has exceeded tho limit of the catch—7,500 :s]:in:;i—fl;;ed by the modus vivendi. The matter it; regarded here as quite important and may lead to the modus vivendi being declared inoperative after this date. LATEST MARKET REPORT. St. I'uul Union Stock Yards. SOUTH ST. PAUL, Sept.
