5-j j «•*" '* Sow FftANCK has come in for a share o , with England, Germany and Other of Europe. In the cutting up and i^fistfibution of the Dark Continent the JiJttife African is about the only one who Pi left Out of all consideration. There wii' Elbe no territory set aside for him. ACCOBBINO to Bishop Taylor, the heroic ^missionary in Africa, the single city oi ft Hamburg, Germany, has exported 200,000 tons of mm and gin lo Africa within the last year. Apparently the best way to convert Africa, therefore, would be first to convert Hamburg. THE speculators who sects, ed the passage of the silver law took hold oi the meta again Saturday and pushed the price up three more cents to 81.17 an ounce—the highest point touched since 1879. But th tfoVtrnnient has nothing to do under the law but go ahead and buy and bid up th price again. IT appears that the Canadians have been Stealing timber from Government lands in Minnesota. Not content with that, they have added impudence to the theft by haul ing the sawed lumber back to the Unitec States and selling it to the people they stole it from. Our northern neighbor: need watching. They steal our timber am our sealskins, and they will not let us even steal their fish. What sort of reciprocity is that, anyway? . hns n very thrifty govern roent. When a soldier dies in service .£ for funeral expenses is deducted fron whatever money may be due him; or, case he hns nothing, the officer command ing his company must pay the expenses When a sailor dies at Eea he is chargei with the cost of the canvas and the sho with which he is buried. A country tha spends millions in supporting roynlity am in pensioning royalty's faraway connec tions must exerciso economy somewhere IT must bo hoped that the rumors of potato famine in parts ot Ireland least abl to endure suffering are exaggerated Harold Frederic, however, cables to th New York Times that the crop is the wors since 1879 "in that whole section soutli an west of a line drawn diagonally fron Waterford toSligo," that is, full half o of Ireland. It is worsi in Cork, Water foro, Tipperary, Limerick and Galway other reports say that Donegal is badly at flicted with tho blight, and Donegal, wit] the possible exception of Leitrim, is th poorest count of Ireland. TIIEIIE may be some doubt as to weatl er Kemmler was killed at once, but an elec trie light wire at Denver, which had n ipecial loading and with do direction froi: experts, successfully gst in its work las dunday. Electricity seems to lack pride The more informal it appears tolbe th more effective are the results which i yields. Pampered by scientist?, it refuse to perform its mission with any grace but, left alone to act in accordance wit its own will, it makes a four-bagge every time and slides in at the home pint so successfully that no doabt exisits to ta the impartiality of the umpire. IT is rare that crop failures are so man and general as now reported. The whea yield is much below the average, not onl in the United States but over the work Less than one-third the amount of cor: produced last year will probably be har vested. Potatoes are short in the west 01: .an almost total failure in Ireland. Th peach crop is a failure, the apple cro nearly so and garden fruits and vegetable particularly in tho West, have generall suffered from drouth and other causes The crops in the lower sections of th province of Quebec are so far a fuilur that government aid is sought, and hun dreds of families are preparing to leave A winter of high prices for food product generally seems to be approaching in bot' Europe .md America.

The evil tha those microscopial creatures do, the hu man body is being uncovered, and.'What i more to the point, is being counteracted The announcement of Dr. Koch, the cm inent bacteriologist, that he has nearlj discovered a method of inoculation agains the bacilli that cause consumption will be hailed with interest by afflicted humanity A prevention or a cure of this terribl disease would, be ono of tho greatos scientific achievements of this ago. OKLAHOMA was a delusion and a snare It is only a little over a year since then was a grand rush to pre-empt land there and people tramped over each other in their haste for possession. Now the governor of the territory announces that tho in habitants are in danger of starving, am that the territory is so poor that it canno provide means for its own sufferers.

There 1ms not Iwn a jarring noto in the estimate of this splendid Irish- American. lie had his faults, and thusf, have been recognized u« "the defects in bis qualities," springing from bin impulsive Celtic temper; but lie always rang true on every issue of human rights as opposed to those of privilege, the concrete selfishness of untrenuhcd cUs.sts, whellici of rank, money or political Loss-ship. Every where his rigorous Americanism hus been eni|ili»siz(jd as the <{iiu)ity that gave him his transcendent influence among the people of hia race, and hii< warm acceptance witli Americans of older lineage. Ho waa Irish in every libra of )ii« nature, but he valued the heritage of tlio Pil. grim and the Puritan. The tory press of Kngland cannot understand this grout and universal Auwrivau tribute to u man who in the annals of the British empire is only recorded as "No 9843," an Australian convict, yet unpur- donod for bin Irish patriotism. But the English brier, know very little oven about America, and less about the Irish exiloa who have fought in iho armies of tho Union and huve become a component port of our national lifo. John Boylo O'Hoilly was so thorough on American that we aro jure he >voul.d wot desire that his body should be buried fii Ireland, as Jvhu Dillon and Michael Daritt suggest.

London Telegraph. This has been a typical bourgeois Sunday in Paris. For a moment the world oi fashion Ins down away. The middle anci the working classes have the city lo themselves, and they spend the first day of the week in their own modest fashion. Although not hot enough to induce them tc pass the afternoon beside the fountains oi Versailles, which Alfred do Mussel poetically vituperated on their account, or in charming woodlands of Mountuiorency, the weather was sufficiently pleasant to bring them out of doors in the summer rainment which all Parisran men and women know BO well how to display to the best advantage. In the morning the ladies go to church and the husbands stay at home; unless out of complaisance^ to what he calls "womans prejudices," a husband consents in a careless manner to accompany his spouse to receive spiritua comfort, which he docs not consider to have much effect. Afternoon is their opportunity. Then it is that the whole family, numbering perhaps half a dozen, pack themselves in a hired victoria, one of then: perched beside the Jehu, and drive rounc the boulevards, up the Champs Elysees to Bqis do Boulogne, or for a change may patronize tho Bois do Vincenues, outside the , fortifications at tho East End, which, as a rule, is neglected unjustly by Parisians. This drive is an essential port of the Sunday's entertainment. It in not very exciting, but it pleases thorn and makes the streets lively. Those who cannot afford tho price of; a cab do not stay at homo on that account. The Great Boulevard — which the dwellers in Monimartro or Menilmontant see as seldom as residents in Mile End or Berrnondsey do Regent strent — is tho goal of their ambition on a Sunday afternoon. Under the trees they sit chatting, waiting patiently for the hour of dinner. Then it is that the cafes which supply meals of four courses at one and three-pence a head do a roaring business; for the counter jumper or the workman and his wife or betrothed never thihk of dining at homo on Sunday evening, preferring to stow themselves away in little eftabliHhinsnts whore the dishes, if numerous, are of doubtful origin. For tho close of people who despise these places and their occupants their is plenty of variety of a superior kind, at prices ranging from 8s. to Od. to 5s., wine included. Tim last iiamt'd pricu is never exceeded unless in restaurant* patronized habitually by those who like good living and Uoulevardicn. Jn the evening, either the Gotnedie-Frnncttiso, or an Opera-Bouffeo Theatre, or a cafe- concert is visited, and tho respectable Parisioner then retires to rest satisfied Hint he hns spent Sunday in a rational and reputable manner. Dlukmi'H LiiMt ICoiiclliitf In Ainurluu. After his little winter tour Dickens name to New York to take leave of the American public. On the Saturday evening before the final reading the newspaper fraternity gave him a dinner at Delmonico's, Fifth avenue and fourteenth street, formerly the hospitable hoiibo of Moses II. tiriiiiiell. At this dinner Mr. Greoley presided, and that tho bland and eccentric teetotaller, who was not supposed to be versed in what Carlylc called the "tea-table proprieties." should take tlio chair at dinner to so royatering a blade — within discreet limits — and so deft an artist of all kinds of beverages as Dickens was a stroke of extravagance in his own way. H was, indeed, doubtful if he could appear, but after an hour ho came limping slowly into the room on the arm of Mr. Grooloy. In his speech, with great delicacy and feeling, Dickens alluded to some possible misunderstanding between him and hiu hosts, now forever vanished, and declared his purpose of publicly recognizing that fact in tnture editions of his works, His words were greeted with great enthusiasm. and on the following Monday evening In; read, for tho last time in tho country at Sleinway hall, and sailed on Wednesday. Ho was still very lamo but bo read with unusal vigor and with deep feeling. As ho ended and slowly limped a way, the applause was prodigious; and the whole audience rose and stood waiting, As he reached the steps of tho platform, he paused and turned toward tho hall; th™, after a moment, he came ulowly ami j«iinfu!)p back again, and with a pnlefaou and evidently deeply moved, ho gazed at Hie vast audience. The hall was nujhed, and in a voice firm but full of pathos, ho spoko a few words of farewell, "1 shall never recall you," ho said, "an u mere public audience, but rather as a host of personal friends, and over with tho (jri'iit- est gratitude, tenderness and consideration. God bless you and God bless the land in which i leave you." Tliq great audience waited respectfully, wistfully watching him as he slowly withdrew. The faithful Dolby, his friend and manager helped him down the steps. The door closed behind him and the most ineinor- uble incident in tho story of Stoiuway ha.U ended. __ _ _ __ CALIFORNIA.

The heavens were as black as night and the wind blew with a meat frightful velocity, whole rows of trees were blown down. Pol- lowing this, hundreds of houses were unroofed and partially blown over or completely demolished and worse than all, a visitation of death was sent upon a number of people. _ Large districts in several sections of this city aro in absolute ruin, and women and children are in tho street, crying aud ringing their hands in absolute dismay. The damage will reach hundreds of thousands of dollars. The pasehger train and locomotives at tho depot were blown over and every wire in the city, electric light, telephone and telegraph is down.

Building mechanics of all kinds can find employment here for weeks to come, as .it is already known that fully two hundred buildings hove been blown down or otherwise damaged. Many of tho structures Were largo in size and of great'yalue. Approximate losses only can be given as follows: Hazard Wiro Rope works, 825,000. S. L. Brown, 820,000.

This was the mUn who, from 18-10-04, in congress, and in the west, lived and worked for the abolition cause. Yet ho had tho gentle, winning manners of a woman, and was cordial alike to friend anil too, lo young and old. Ho had learned well tho lesson of self-control, for ho says: "When I was a boy 1 used to strike back at every dog that 'barked at, me us 1 rode along tho highway, but I have ceased doing so long since, and let them bite Iho iron that encircles tho whfiel." H was in his family he was best and greatest; there he gave all the love of a warm and generous heart and no member ever heard from hiln oven a reproving word; a look was all that was ever inflicted. During his long stay at Princeton his house was the s'ation where all trains on the "underground railway" stopped for dinner, ami road did a large passenger business. His houso and barn was full of fugitive ncgtouii from year to year. Late one Saturday night, twelve stalwart blacks come crouching into the house fleeing from pursuit, llo gave Ihom shelter, took tho round dozen to church the next morning, and used them in his sermon as an illustration of the iniquities of slavery. lie was fri'ijiiontly arrested for violation of tho fugitive slave law, paid his linos and always announced to the court whore tho next anti-slavery meeting was lo bo held. A fugitive slave was onco captured in the harvest field and taken to the courthouse for preliminary trial before being returned south. Tho affair (created great excitement in tho neighborhood. The antislavery members of Iho district wore soon summoned, and leaving their plows in the furrows cl lined on their harnessed horses and came galloping to town. Lovejoy lived about threo-quartors of a milo from the village. Ho was at once notified, and his (loot Kentucky mare was soon in front if iho court-house. Ho entered the ronrt- iiouso walked straight up to the negri) and cut the rope, put the knife in Inn hand, and with the assistnneo of u law friends, nifii- 011 him out of tho room, and then pointing out tho inaro, told him to ride for his life. The frantic negro slashed wildly at tho halter, severed it, and gashed the shoulder of tho mare, but managed to mount and aud off like Iho wind. What u race was that! The crazy, frightened fugitive far abend, digging wilii his heels tho sidos and boating with black lists tho shoulders of tho Hying race horso. The "embattled abolition farmers," galloping madly after, the jangling chains of tho harnchs striking tho legs of their clumsy horses, rushed to what they knew would bo tho asylum of the fugitive. The negro, trembling with fright, rnJi- cd into tho house anil was concealed by Mrs. Lovejoy. Her husband was among tho first to arrive, having lost both slippers on tho way, followed by officers, slave- catchers, and a howling mob. lie planted himself just inside the gate, ami in a quiet voice, but with intense fury, warned any man against putting a foot insidu tho gate. There stood Lovejoy, ami there stood tho crowd, both wrought lo tho highist pitch of anger. Tho aspect of Iho crowd was frightening, but Iho face of Lovejoy was so terrible that, not a. man dared approach him while this was happening in front of tho houso, a man with a black faco was soon to emerge from a window, and go scurrying off across Iho fields, Ho was followed by tha onliro pack of bloodhounds, and when caught proved to bo a deacon in Mr, Lovejoy's church. Whilo the mob was chasing the deacon, a man under a broad-brimmed straw hat walked quiutly to tho barn.

The crnze for undersized ponies, in oUr opinion, says the Cornhill Magazine, has had its day. Except as curiosities or for the purpose of the menagerie, these pigmj animals aro practically useless. Perhapi the fashion of purchasing them at extra ordinary high prices would not have Instei so long Imd'it been fully understood tha their production was mainly a question o 'scanty feeding, either in the case of the animals themselves or of their more or less immediate progenitors. And the same may bo said of super abundant hair. The experiment can ensi ly bo made by any one curious in these mailers. Subject a poney to extremi hardship, leaving it out of doors in al weathers, and it will develop hair—and we may add, hoofs—accordingly. A veritable Shetlander, picked at random fron the various breeds, is just as likely to be smooth-haired and clean-limbed as shaggy It all depends upon the treatment, or a least mainly so. The conventional Shel land pony—the animal represented ii picture-books—namely, about 40 to 4-? inches high, very light-jointed, and will an impossible growth of hair all over him. is just about ns I nd a type of this famous race as can well bo imagined. From hi: build ho is generally short-winded am thoroughly inpracticable in his paces. A South Mainland -specimen, on the other hand, lung and rakish in build—hard grown, as tho saving is—and clean-limbed will fur surpass his companion in staying power. One of this hardy breed—in our opinion tho ideal Shetland ponoy—has been known lo travel Iroin Sumburg to Dorwick and back in tho same day, with a tolerably heavy riding wnight, say fifty- six miles allogether of extremely hilly road. But, minor differences apart, there are curtain characteristics—unfailing tests in their way with tho experienced judge— which go to the "make-up" of a Shetland as distinguished from an Iceland 01 Franco policy—e. g., a certain unmistakable breadth of build, set of pasterns, find, more particularly, and apathetic uir which no other breed DOSECSF. Your "Shcttle" is not a quick animal, is inclined to be sleeply rather than otherwise in his paces, nnd is, as a rule, disposed to do no more than he can help in the way of exertion, though, if put to it, ho cvinow groat power of endurance and will go through an immense amount of \york fur his size. The Icelnnd variety is altogether inferior, shorter-lived, narrower in build, and generally fallacious, but, with all this, he is qu'ctier, livelier and lacks that air of pensive melancholy which haunts every Shetland ponoy. Our advice is to avoid the inferior animal, however highly recommended. His price is, rouuhly speaking, about half that of tho Shetlander. but the money is ill saved. The average lifo of an Icelander is about 12 or l!i years, while the other will live to 25 or even more, ARTIFICIAL U;li. Sfhjjp JpjBip'p, How It Is Mnnufac-riircd— A I'ro0u<;t Hun Is I.llculy to Damage Ono of thu Grasping Washington Slur. An impetus has been given lo the manufacture of artificial iee all over the country by tho recent advance in tho price of Ihe natural product. New plants ore started up bore and there, and old ones are being redoubled and trebled in capacity. Improvements in ice-making machinery have made.'nipid strides every year, increasing Iho yield, lessoning tho cost am! cheapening the article. It. has been upward of thirty years since the principles involved came into practical and commercial use, nnd the near future will se< tho linn; when coiidilions will bo changed and tho dealers in natural ico will bestrug glii'g lo compote with great, cold crystal b'ockss the productof man's ingenuity. Iu fact, the threatening attitude of the ico machine now holds a sweeping monopoly at bay, and slands between a gigantic ice trust and consumers of the frozen fluid, ice companies are watching tho progress of ice-making with fear, and the companj that maintains ils old prices as far as possible will bo wise iniU day and genera- lion. In order to understand the operation ol ice-making by machinery it is necessary tc comprehend some of tho well established phenomena of heat in relation to (ruses, fluid:- and solids. Air, for instance, is the nfost common of liases, and, and is w known, becomes heated when compressed. In this compressed sditu itn heat -can be more readily removed than when in its noi null degree of expansion. Tien, again when allowed tore-expend it is in condition to absorb a largo amount of heat from any solid or fluid with which it is brought in contract. Hence, a simple 'method of freezing it produced by compressed air. thus, say three cubic feet of uir at the normal pressure of 1,500 pounds per square inch, with a temperature of 75 de- gress I 1 abrenheitj which compressed to one cubic foot will show a temperature of about '225 degrees Fahrenheit. After it has been allowed to cool sufficiently to wain its normal temperature of 75 degrees 'Fahrenheit it may be allowed to ro-oxpand to the original three cubic foot, when ils temperature will fall to 15 degrees Fahrenheit— below freezing—and if permitted to lead into a receiver containing water the heat of tho water will bo drawn to the air, iin'l if tho volume of water is not to largo it will soon bo frozen in consequence. Of course a greater degree of compression will cause a correspondingly lowtr temperature in tho re oxpandingair uud effect a larger body of water proportionately. There, aro other {pises, however, which are far greater refrieernting agents than air; henco Iho employment of ammonia and other chemicals by tho various processes covered by patents. The basis of all operations, however, is tho heating of gasos by compression, as in the case of atmospheric uir, and allowing it first to cool and then low-expand. This calls for very powerful compression machinery, a cooling reservoir eupablo of sustaining a u'omendouB pressure and proper conduits Cor the protection of the expanded air and very cold gas. Tho plants for manufacturing ico iu Washington, Baltimore, Richmond and Petersburg aro boing largely extended in capacity. Tho improvements iu the Washington plant have been fully describ- in tho Star heretofore. The Baltimore eompanv will soon have sixteen now tanks in operation. These now tanks will ouch maliO a block of ico measuring 11 by 22 by 24 inches, weiirhing 800 pounds. Tlio potorsburg factory turned out 50,000 pounds daily last year. It is now putting 150,000 pounds daily on the market, and estimates have boon mado for machinery lo add still another 100,000 daily, verily it is an ill ice famine that blows no ono good. SCALDED AND SUFFOCATED A Terrible Railroad Wreck Occurs Near the Locality of the Wal- lostoft Disaster. Fifteen People arc Instantly Killed, Others Slowly Scalded to Death —Many Injured. An Excellent Description of the Scene ot Despair, Desolation and Death. BOSTON, Aug. 19.—One of the most disastrous railroad accidents that ever occurred in the vicinity of Boston, and one that rivals the famous Wollastpn disaster of October 5, 1878, occurred this afternoon on the same road—the Old Colony—and very near the same locality. In the Wollaston disaster, fifteen were killed and nearly 150 injured. Today fifteen persons were killed, twenty-three seriously injured, three fatally, and several more sustained slight injuries. The train wrecked today was the Woodsholl express, which is due at Boston at 1:50 p. m. It consisted of locomotive, baggage car, smoker Pulman car, Puritan, and four ordinary coaches, heavily loaded. The train had passed Quincy station running at about ten miles an hour and just beyond the President's bridge the engine left tho track from a cause at present undetermined, and plunged into an embankment twelve feet high. The tender, baggage car, smoker and Pullman passed by the engine and were stretched along for a distance of one hundred foet beside the track. The foremost passenger coan'i left 'the rails and fell upon its left side upon tho engine. The lower forward portion was torn lo pieces, and the passengers in the car, some fifty in number, were thrown into the rear corner, from which cloven dead bodies wore afterwards taken out. The escaping steam and smoke from the engine instantly filled tho car. The torwardcars were forced iiu over the outward bound track, completely blocking the traffic all day an d nigh Only three persons on tho train ahead of the passenger coach wero injured. These were, the fireman, who was instantly killed and buried under tho engine; the engineer and Pullman car conductor Benson were both badly injured In the three rear passenger conches, the occupants received no worse injury than a slight shaking up. The first passenger coach was tho principal scene of de.ith mid agony and the experience of the unlucky occupants was probably never exceeded in horror and suffering in any railroad wreck of recent years. William Fennell, of Boston, who was a passenger in the fourth car of tne train, gives the following graphic account of his experience in the wrecked car, whore most of the dead nnd injured lay: "Tho train was running through Quincy at the rate of thirty miles an hour. When near the president's bridire, there was a rumbling sound, followed by an awful crash. The three forward cars lurched and left tli3 track, the fourth kept tho rails and swept along upon the broken locomotive, which lay in its ;vay forcing itself on top of it. Tho shock was terrific and it seem aa in the car was liftsd up twenty fest in the air. When the car descended on the engine, it swerved suddenly, the occupants being thrown violently about. The steam came inlo tlie car in dense clouds from the locomotive beneath, scalding and almost suffocating the people penned inside. Men and women wero gasping about me as they tried to speak and shout. As they became w oaker and weaker as the steam filled their luugs, I could see them push their hands or feet through broken windows, trying in vain to get a breath of fresh air. It seemed as though eight or ten died right there before me. There were forty or fifty passengers in the car and till seemed wounded, more or less, twenty-five at least, seriously. 1 saw tho flesh barned from the men and women as the steam enveloped them, and I heard them groaning in their death struggles as tho steaming fumes became holler and denser. Finally I reached a hole in •the bottom of the car in some way and crawled out. All about was wreck and ruin. The passengers from the other cars had then hardly gathered themselves together and were not to be seen. But over on the fence bordering the railroad track were ten or twenty men watching tho ruin and powerless from frifrht and aslon- ishment, I screamed, shouted and swore at them, but they would not move. These men saw me tear at the boards of tho car bottom with all my might; saw me pull helpless women from the car; saw mo caught beneath n falling bar of iron and unable to extricate myself, or aid others and they refused to aid me. I did what I was able in assisting others. The killed are: Mrs. Orcutt Allen, Philadelphia. Mrs. Mary E. Fenuelly, aged 70, Louisville. F. J. Johnson, Montpelier, Vt. John Ryan, fireman of the train. Four women, two men and two children unidentified. Mrs. A. C. Wells, Hartford, Conn. A daughter of H. L. Welch, Watcrville, Conn. Alice Fennolly. Catherine Fennelly. Tho following are critically injured: Mr. Oscar Fennolly, Louisville, scalded over tho -whole body; C. M. Copp, Clove- land, Ohio, scalded over the whole body, not expected to live; E. C. Bailey, of Dorchester, formerly proprietor of Iho Boston Herald, scalded on the face and hands. Those seriously injured number thirty, and the condition of two or three is critical. It is reported that tho name of one of the unidentified dead is W. H Grndy, and two others are Mrs. E. P Johnson and her 15 year old boy. Ic i also reported that tho niece of Mrs. A Wells, of Hartford, is among the uniden lififid dead. Coals of tho engine set fire to tho coach but tho fire was soon exting uishod. A number of physicians wen summoned to tho spot and as soon as pos sible those living wero taken from (heir positions of peri and those most seriously hurt were taken to the hospital. The dead wore laic on tho grass beneath a treo until the undertakers arrived. All that human skill could accomplish was done to soothe the lits! hours of those suffering from burns and wounds-. In the afternoon tho crowd became so great about tho wreck tearing Iho remnants of Ihe cars to pieces and securing mementoes, that tho officers wero compelled ;o drive Ihom away and erect guard ropes. Tho general impression seems to jo that tho wreck wiw caused by the iprcading of the rails. Tlie most unfor- ;unuto party was tho family of Oscar Fen- lelly. His wife, three children, a mother lud maid wore in the party, lib mother md two children \vero killed and his wife was so seriously injured that She may die at any moment. His other ihild and maid are both injured. Three wrsons HO far have not boon found and iivu noro may die, making twenty persons n all us victims of the horrible wreck. Slectric lights and gasoline lamps were irectod as soon as it began to grov, dark, md the work of clearing away tho debris vus continued all night. , NO SITU. Several 1-at-Hcn ScclcUift to Centtdl t Wealthy Cftfeoga Concern. CHICAGO, Aug. 21. — An order hat been issued restraining the A. H. Andrews company from paying ttny divideftdd to C. N. Andrews. The plaintiffs are Milwaft- kee people mainly— M. B. Gary, Jr. William Price, Eliza T. Brysyn and Caroline Metcalf — and the defendant faction of the company consists of Alfred H. Andrews, Uephama S. Holbrook, Fred A. Holbrook and Edwin N. Andrews. The plantiffs allege a fradulent scheme on the part Of the defendants to secure the control Of the company in fraud of the plaintiffs' rights, It is claimed that E. N. Andrews Bub- scribed for 3,700 shares of stock, which he did not take at the time H greed; that later he agreed to take 8,210 shares in lieu of the amount originally subscribed to, paying $75,000 cash and $311,000 in seven annual payments. The plain tiffs objected, as the stock was worth more. The defendant stockholders, it is alleged, held, a meeting without notifying the plaintiffs, disposed of the stock, elected new officers and now have control of the company. A meeting of the directors havine been called for Aug. 20 to ratify the transfer, aft ex- parte enjoining order was asked, for and granted restraining the ratification. The order holds until September 3, when Judge Graham will hear a motion for a regular temporary injunction. The company was stocked for $654,400 and that stock is now worth $981,600. TO BONDS.

CHICAGO, Aug. 19.—After wrangling until aftor midnight the directors of the World's fair adjourned again this even- oning, without definitely selecting a site. It was expected that the mooting would be a decisive ono, but at midnight the question of location was left more open than it hud been ut uuy time for weeks past. Aside from hearing reports from tho committee and experts, nearly the whole time was con- Buuied in au interchange of widely differing views, at quite honied and again wearisome in the extreme. Action waa tukon on but two motions. A resolution offered by J. J. Jeffery was adopted, referring tho question of a sito back to the committee with instructions to abandon the consideration of Jackson Park unless enough of the urea there, toy 400 wee, could be mw,1e available at a reasonable coat to accommodate the whole 7^*7- "•?>''*" .71 , , "?, V . --'--r'-.l. i '1 , -VV 1 -*" 11- : » the c»ift«iittee is|Qcciipm not<:pa t,h|,n. O N S C AEucIi Uneasiness Is Folt by the llullroatl OlIlelnlH. NEW YORK, Aug. 19. — An air of. uneasiness reigned about the I! rand Central' depot this evening, and for the first time in several days Webb and Voorhees are spending the night in the depot. "The- emergency had evidently arisen: to induce the New York Central officials to- anticipate developments that might require their attention at anj moment, The- cause of their anxiety, which appeared- clearly in their unusual aversion to making comments on the situation, was explainable by tho events of the forenoon.. This episode was an interview between* I Vice President Webb and Chief Sargent of the brotherhood of locomotive firemen.. In this conference Webb was placed in* the situation of doing most of the talking.. In a cordial manner he complimented Sargeant, and the organization of which the latter was the head, for the manner in<. which it had remained true to the Central; Hiring the strike. Webb gave Sargeant: every opportunity to say that. the firemen appreciated the compliment; and would continue in the future as in\ the past, true to tho interests of the railroad and not join the ranks of strikers,. v but the wiley chief engineer did not say anything. Tnere was an appearance of unwillingness to talk at; any length on the part of tho sergeant.. This interview caused uneasiness. Neither; Webb nor Voorhees had much to say this: evening. Nothing further has been> / heard from Powderly or the leaders of the.- ; Knights of Labor. / BUYING A liAI.lj CLtTH. Tlio OLJtiot is to Huko tho ComiiUcu.tGil.
