The dispatch, like the one received Saturday, was from Consul General Jernigau, and shows that no Anericaus suffered, but that the niasiacit) of British subjects was greater than at first reported. The consul general's dispatch is as follows: "Americans safe. None hurt. Ten British killed." Although Mr. Jeruigeu does not use the word "missionaries" in his di.S' patch, there is no doubt felt by the officials of the state department that he refers to them, and that his dis* patch is intended as supplementary to that of Saturday. Much gratification is expressed that the Americans have not suffered, as the dispatch appears to leave no doubt on that point. The cablegram was at once forwarded to Secretary Olney for his information. Instruction to Dotiby. Up to this time, so far as ascertained, no steps have been taken by the navy department toward sending any naval force to the district where the reported massacre has occurred. When word came of the trouble Saturday the customary instructions were sent to Minister Derxby at Pekiu to see that American interests were protected. In a response received the minister said that small boats could reach the place quick with marines. Admiral Carpenter is in command of the Chinese station, and he has authority to use the vessels and men under his command to assist in affording any protection that may be regarded as necessary. The lack of ships of light draught that can penetrate the shallow waters of the Chinese rivers is a serious embarrassment to the authorities. _ BRUTALLY MURDERED. 'EQUALS EXP6cfAtf6fo& Estimate of ttta Crap fo* ttr« VCft*. PATH., Aug. 5. -The Pioneer Press says: Carefully prepared 6s- timates of the crop of 1895 iii Minnesota, the Dr.kotas and Wisconsin show that the encouraging outlook early in the season has become a Verity. Conservative correspondent* from the different localities of the 1'oiir states furnish information of the probable yield per acre in their immediate Vicinity after personal examination of the fields ~and extensive. inquiry among the most reliable farmers. In many instances the tale of the thresher, whoss accuracy cannot be doubted, confirms the former estimates of even sxceeds item. The reports from Minnesota indicate that crops of all sorts are turning out better than was expected in the few localities where it was feared they had been injured. The estimated yield pel- acre varies, of course, in the different sections of the state, owing to differ- ant conditions 6f soil and amount c.f .rainfall. An Average Vleirt of 20 bushels of wheat to the acre is reported from counties where 10 to 12 Vtishels would have gladdened farmers in other seasons. In other counties 22 bushels of wheat per acre is confidently expected, while 45 bushels of oats and 40 bushels of barley is not unusual this year. In some counties in South Dakota where a considerable portion of the crop has been threshed the returns vary from 10 to 22 bushels per acre. oats from 80 to SO bushels. In other counties the average yield of wheat is 12 to 18 bushels. In North Dakota in the Red river valley the average wheat crop is placed at from 25 to 30 bushels, In Eichland county, near Wahpeton, some barley which has been threshed yielded (jo bushels per acre. MIGHT FIRE GREENWAY. SUMMARY OF WEIR'S NEWS, Victims Were Burned Alive or Killed With Spears and Swords. LONDON, Aug. 5.—A Shanghai dispatch to The Times says that the mission and sanitarium at Wha Saug, near Ku Cheng, province of Fo Keiii, has been attacked and 10 British subjects killed. The Rev. Mr. Stewart, wife aud child were burned in their house. The Misses Yellow and Marshall, two sisters named Saunders, two sisters named Gordon and Steetie Newcouie were murdered with shears and swords. Miss Codrington was seriously wouuded about the head aud Stewart's eldest child had a kuee cap injured while the younger had an eye gouged out. The Rev. Mr. Phillips with two Americans, were wounded but arrived safely at Fu Chau Fu. The prefect of Cheng Fu, who was on the inquiry commission, is seriously implicated i", the Cheng Fu outrages. Officials to Jiliitne. A two column article from Hankan, on the Caes Ssu Chueu mission outrages, published in The Times declares that officials are at the bottom oi' all anti-foreign i'eeling, and that the Chinese people themselves are quite friendly. The letter suggests that if the powers tried a little benevolent retaliation it would prove an infallible cure. The Standard in its editorial on the Ku Cheng outrage, says: "We must gpeak to China in a manner which cannot be misunderstood. Not only must the murderers be punished, but a thorough example must be made of the officials whose neglect permits such outrages.'' THE WAR OVER. Governor of Manitoba Said to lie Considering the Matter. WINNIPEG, Man., Aug. 5.—Sir John Schultze, governor of Manitoba, transmitted to Premier Greeuway a communication from the Dominion government asking Greeuway just how far he will go in compromising the Catholic school difficulty. Sir John, after trans- mittiug the communication, took the train for Banff, in the Rocky mountains, where Sir Mackenzie Bowell, premier of Canada, now is. In Winnipeg the startling rumor is freely circulated by politicians that if Premier Greenway persists in his rotu-al to remedy Catholic grievances he and his ministers will be dismissed from office by the Manitoba governor. Of course the governor has the power to do this, but such a high handed course would be calculated only to intensify the trouble and bitterness. Certain it is, however, vhat the Dominion government is contemplating some decisive move. . OMAHA'S POLICE MUDDLE. Extra Mct> l>iRChar{f«'<l aud EverythinK (Juiet. O.M.iHA, Aug. 5.—Things have been quiot in the city during tue day. The fire and polios board decided it was not necessary to maintain an army of policemen at the police station to de- lend them Irorn an attack of a mob. Accordingly the 75 special policemen that had been on duty for the preceding 30 hours were ordered to remove their stars and go home prepared to answer a call at any time. Thus far none of the police force who have signed the pledge to support the new board have taken the preliminary step of resigning from the present force. Friday it was stated that they were going to secede and place themselves opeuiy under the direction of the new board, but more recent developments seem to have induced them to postpone their contemplated action. IT IS UaELESS. Bannock Indians Back On Their Reservation. MARKET LAKE, Ida., Aug. 5.-—A special telegram from the Bannock agency says that Indian Agent Teter has wired General .Coppiuger from the reservation that all Indians who had been absent irorn the Fort Hall reservation have returned and that all is quiot.. Agent Teter also sent the following telegram to the commissioner of Indian affairs at Washington: "All Indians absent from reservation have returned; had been in council and requested me to telegraph their heartfelt good wishes; had not harmed a white man; would start haymaking, leaving their grievance to the justice of the white men." WANT TO BE ANNEXED. Hill Farther Than Kver From Accomplishing Consolidation. NEW YORK, Aug. 8.—President Hill and Vice President Clough of the Great Northern have been in this city for a week past in constant consultation with J. Pierpout Morgan and with Edward D. Adams, chairman of the Northern Pacific reorganization committee. They have made no progress in the scheme for obtaining control of the Northern Pacific road through the organization of a third company. It is safe to say that Mr. Hill and Mr, Morgan are now Jurther apart than at any time since the consolidation project was broached last May. NOT AN A. P. A. for the fall season contains <ia follov.'

It, tftdoffte* tho tttSh Nfiw YORK, Aug. 2. -f he national officers and directors of the Ancient Ofdet of Hibernians met at the Continental hotel and passed resolutions which ate thought to be deeply signify cant of the future policy of the organization iu the United States on the question of the method for forwarding the cause of Irish Independence.' The resolutions ate said by well informed Irishmen to mean that the A. O. M. indorses the Irish revolutionary movement Which seeks Irish independence by force of arms although the text does hot convey that statement in direct language. The importance of the ac* tion taken lies iii the fact that it does so in the name of the 500,000 men who f orin the society. JPrtvor the ffoxr Movement, Major Edward Sweeny of Cincinnati said: "I am, and so are the other officers and directors, in favor of the new movement, so long as we see it is a movement in the right direction, We are tired of humbug and now we must have active Work." H. J. 'Slattery, the national secretary, said; "These resolutions are clis* tinctly in favor of the new movement as a revolutionary movement, not oth* erwise. I do not believe in begging favors of England. You can get nothing out of England save by one way." "T. J. Duuclon of Columbus, O., national treasurer, said: "We take issue now with England aud for the last time, I hope. Ireland must be free no matter how we accomplish it.

JEFFERSON, Mo., Aug. 6.—A phenomenon was witnessed here. From o a.m. until dark dead fish by the thousands have been floating down the Missouri river. From appearances the fish had been dead from 48 to 60 hours when they reached here. But three species of fish were observed—buffalo, drum and carp—and none of them weighed more than four pounds. Most of them were much smaller. At first it was supposed that some person had been using dynamite, and the attention of State Game and Fish "Warden Henry was called to the matter. It is his opinion, and one generally concurred in, that the unprecedented floods of the past few days washed the fish out of smaller streams up the river with sufficient force to kill them. The procession of dead fish observed up to dark was estimated at 50 rniles iu length and numbered thou- suuds. ABOUT ALUMINUM. Production in the United States Lust Year Was 550,000 Pounds. WASHINGTON, Aug. 3.—The forthcoming review of the geological survey of the mineral resources of the country will show that the production of aluminum in the United States in 1894 was 550,000 pounds. The imports were valued at $4,110. Bauxile, which is an oxide of aluminum, has been found in sufficient quantities to be commercially valuable in only three localities in the United States. These are in Arizona, New Mexico, and the Cooza valley of Georgia and Alabama. Aluminum, the review will say, has now found the position in the arts predicted for it, and the demand is increasing. Its metallurgical use has proved more valuable than was expected. DIVORCES NULLIFIED.

As the people from other states who flocked here for divorces only remain 90 days, this decision renders null and void several hundred divorces granted to outsiders, in addition to those nullified by former decisions already reaffirmed.

OMAHA; Aug. 8.— A dispatfeh re* ceived at the headquarters of the de- partmeht of the Platte indicates that tho Indians are returning from Jack* soils Hole by a straight line to the reservation. To testify the correctness the Union Pacific officials were asked to telegraph for information from stations along the Oregon Short Line from Soda Springs westward. The following reply is from the division superintendent at Pocatello: A stage driver who has just reached Soda Springs says he left Carraboo Friday morning. He came through the Grave Lake and Blackfoot River country. He reports 200 Bannocks at Grave Lake on the way from Jacksons Hole to the reservation. They said that there had been no fighting and no desire to fight on their part. The scare seems te be over and settlers understand they are trying to make their way back to the reservation to avoid troops. SURETIES ARE ANXIOUS. Bondsmen of Taylor Begin to Wonder If They Are Duped. Sioux CITY, la., Aug. 5.—Reports from South Dakota are that the sureties of W. W. Taylor, the defaulting state treasurer, are considerably worried by their principal's delay in turning over his property to them to secure them against loss on his bond. Ample time has been given him, it is claimed, but still the expected transfer does not take place. The bondsmen are threatened with executions on the judgments against them and are naturally anxious for the consummation of the deal between themselves and the ex-treasurer. The latter seems the least concerned of any of the interested parties. South Dakota's Valuation. PIEURE, S.
