PAIUS, Nov. 33.—While the editors 01 the Paris press were racking their brains to prove to tho satisfaction ol themselves wh> Nicholas should not marry "the little German woman," and while Czar Alexander was on his death bed, the Grand Duchess Elizabeth, wife of Serge of Russia, visited Paris twice incognito to look after her sister Alix's trousseau and incidentally guard against the substitution of spurious for the real articles furnished by the Russian court to tho manufacturer. 0 , i "Tho real articles" included 1,000 blue and silver fox skins, many thou- j sand yards of genuine gold and silver thread, colored precious stones "by the bushel," cloth of gold and miscellaneous furs of every description. Queen Victoria and the kaiser had in vain tried to secure the. job of furnishing the future empress' trousseau to German houses, and the grand duke ol Hesse had endeavored to command his sister not to carry over "all tha money" to "the enemy." The Princess Alix, who is German-English to the backbone., would have gladly consented, GUATEMALA GIVEN WARNING* Mexico Is Exasperated by Official* Press Attacks, i* Fnp«r Universal Intliuntcs TJint Dtp. lomntlc Relations iietween the Coun- trlts Will Ho Declared Off it Papers Are Jfot Itluzzlod. two Alleged Members ot tho Dalton Go Through Ola Phllllpg' Howe.

That was six months ago. A secretary of the Russian embassy, obedient to the czarina's orders, forthwith paid a visit to the chief of one of the greatest dressmakinsr houses. He brought a little list, and still another little list. The one contained tho articles wanted, all described in detail, "not a buttor or hook omitted"—the other gave an account of the stuffs and decorative features which the Russian court was ready to furnish. Six hours later the Paris house, hav-. ing mentioned a round sum—it is said 3,000,000 francs—as the price of laboi and material, was in possession of the order. But there were a few conditions incited to this "all highest command,' ns they call it in the court jargon; first, the Pans house must asn-oe tc procure a perfect model of P'i-incesa Alix's figure by a woman artist, sent especially to Darmstadt; secondly, a special floor must be set aside in the building, or two floors if ueeessury, to which nobody but the artists actually angaged on the trousseau are to be admitted; thirdly, the czarina's represcn- tauve must be allowed to superintend the distribution of the precious stones ST.

LONDON, Nov. 23.—The annual election for members of tho London school board, which is regarded in'.the metropolis as second in importance and interest only to a general election of members of parliament, is in'progress.to- day. The polls opened at 8 o'clock this morning and will not close until 9 o clock tonight. The counting of votes will commence early tomorrow morning. So much interest is manifested in the Cannon Explodes nt Smlthland. SOUTHLAND, la., Nov. 21.—The Illinois Central has resumed its passenger service here.

Fortunately no one was hurt. LONDON, Nov. 22.—The Star publishes a dispatch from Yokaharna stating that the Chinese Pie-Hang squadron of warships attacked and shelle>l the Japanese troops who were inarching upon Port Arthur, tho troops having taken a road near the coast. The Japanese fleet came to the assistance of tho troops and a desperate tight took place between the Chinese and Japanese warships. The Chinese battleship Chen Yeim became useless during the fight and ran ashore in trying to avoid tho torpedoes at tho entrance to the harbor of \Vei-IIai-\Vei.

"As a ' workingman and a public man who never had the advantage-of a school board edti- L-ation," said Mr. Burns, "I appeal to you to rescue the three quarters of a million of London working-men's children from the snares of the religious click on. the board." Another manifesto, of which 1,000,000 copies have been distributed during the past few days, and issued by the Progressive School Board Election council, suys: "The tremendous issue involved today is whether or not it is a good thing for the state that the vast majority of our population should bo educated under priestly influences—we care not what may be the denomination. Tho people are called upon today to suy whether they will hand over the elementary education of the country to the custody of the professors of the-religion established by act of parliament, i. e. the Church of England or Episcopal church.

Tho established church, already in receipt of J.'0,000,000 annually from public sources for the maintenance and propagation of a state religion, is now impudently and fraudulently endeavoring to capture and control the expenditure of additional millions appropriated for school board education in order to bring up oul , children tories and state churchmen and women. We have no objection whatever to religion- being taught in the public schools as,a matter of history, but we object to sectarian religion being crammed down the throats of our children by a powerful, determined and unscrupulous foe,' 1 The labor party has candidates in every district.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 31.—All that is necessary to start the machinery of the internal revenue bureau for the collection of the income tax is an appropriation by congress to provide for the employment of additional deputy collectors. All the new regulations have been formulated by Commissioner Pugh, but they will not be made public until January 1, when the law goes into effect. While this law fines the incomes ject to the new tax. there are many loopholes for technical evasions, and for this reason the work of preparing instructions to collectors has been exceedingly difficult. The instructions issued in 1807-08 were compressed into a two page circular, but the greater scope of the present law has necessitated more sweeping directions, to checkmate false returns and other attempts to evade this tax. Hundreds of decisions have been made by the courts upon appeals from the rulings of assessors under the old law, and the majority of them have more or less bearing upon the interpretation of the new statute. AU these decisions have been carefully arranged and summarized for the instruction of the collectors. The incomes of corporations having been made subject to a tax, it is expected that the bureau will experience considerable difficulty in obtaining accurate data, as tho incomes of individuals interested in the corporations are likely to lead to much confusion on the part of the tux[« .yers. It is this feature of thelaw that has called for the closest study. The precedents established under the old statute, it is believed, cover all of the technical protests that are likely to grow out of the taxing of the individual incomes Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars Damage Done—Fire at White. BEHESFOUD, S. D., Nov. 33.—Tuesday night's fire was a groat blow to Beresford. Fire was discovered about 5 o'clock in Davis' livery stables, .and had gained sufficient headway by the time the fire department arrived to'make it Impossible to control. The stables are located on the north end of the business portion, and the high wind from that direction fanned the flames against the Enterprise hotel, and from there it spread to the brick block of the Union Banking company and completely gutted it. Tho Union County Press is a total loss. Gust Johnson's big general merchandise store was the next victim, followed by Jensen's jewelry store, Bridman's photograph gallery^ W. J. Bulow's law office, Mrs. Jaco's millinery and numerous other buildings of less importance. Every business place in town was emptiedand Buri-endured to the destructive flames, but the^ wind' suddenly ceased, and about midnight the fire was uudof control. The Centerville fire department arrived by a special engine, and but for their help the town would have •burned. The heavy losses are: .Union Banking company, $5,000; Union County Press, »2,000; Davis' livery, S3.000; Enterprise hotel, $3,000; Gust, Johnson, 83,000; W.

PITTSBURO, Pa., Nov. 33.—The offices of the Fidelity Building and Loan association and the Fidelity Building, Loan and Investment company and tho Columbia Building, Loan and Investment company were raided by the police at 10:30 this morning.

The blank returns for individual and corporation incomes have been pro- pared, and on each is printed the exemptions allowed iin- cler the law. The exemptions have all- been arranged in simple form, so as to obviate oil possible confusion on the part of the individuals and corporations who are called upon to make their required statements. Tho blanks are said to be entirely different from those used when the old law was in force. The new regulations and blanks for the returns are locked up in the office of the internal revenue bureau and as they have not been submitted to Secretary Carlisle for his approval it is not expected that they will be put in printed form before the middle of December. The ebtimate made by congress that the income tax will not the government %30,()00,000 in revenue annually, is believed by experts of the internal revenue bureau to bo very low. The earnings of corporations have been oiire- funy scrutinized, and it is expected that the amount realized from this source will not be lobs than $40,000,000 and may possibly roaoh 850,000,000. The arrangement of the machinery for the collection of the tax was left by congress entirely to the internal revenue bureau, and a plan governing all the districts of tho country has been arranged. It is now believed that tho ostimato of Commissioner Miller that i\i will require §500,000 to exocmte this feature ot the law will bo more than sufficient, although it js altogether probable that congress will be asked to make ivu appropriation for this amount.

The boat carried over 1,000 passengers and tho excitement for a .time was intense. Those in the port cabin were warned of their danger by other prisoners who saw the boat was being carried against the slip by tho strong tide, but the crash came too soon for some and they were Duried in the debris of wood work that had aaorned the damaged side of -the vessel.' .

ST., LOU IS MILLS SHUT D 0 W N ">alm That, the Iflotir Market" Is Ovcr- stockctl. ST. Louis, Mo., Nov. 33.—Every Ilour- ing- mill in this city has closed for an. indefinite period. The reason given by mill owners is that the market is glutted with; flour and suffering from overproduction. A different view of the situation is taken by the local dealers, who point to the fnct.that the mills sire suddenly closed at a time when the question of cheaper bread is being vigorously agitated by the newspapers. Mo much fraud in the sale of bread lius been discovered that city council is coii&hler- ing a measure to compel dealers to sell oreiiil by weight.
