DBS MOINES, May 30.—In the supreme court the cases of John Ilammll and George Weems were decided on the application for rehearing. It Was ruled by the court that the rehearing will not be granted, and it nOW remains for the governor to fix the day for their execution or to commute their sentences to life imprisonment.

OZAR IS CROWNED. Nicholas IX l r ortually Proclaimed Ruler Of RtlBSltt. Moscow, May 37.—With ceremonies more magnificent than the human imagination can conjure, and amid a scene of splendor to which a thousand pens could do but scant justice, Nicholas II, who succeeded to the throne on November 1, 1894, was yesterday crowned as ruler of one hundred millions of people. The coronation took place in the cathedral of the Assumption, in the presence of representatives of every civilized people on the face of the globe, of the princes and nobles of the land and of representatives of its leading municipalities. The ceremony occupied nearly seven hours. It included the sprinkling of the czar and czarina with holy water, the kissing of the crucifix, the repeating after the metropolitan of the profession of faith, the clothing of the czar with the imperial mantle of gold and ermine, and finally the placing by the czar of the crown upon his own head. Then followed the crowning of the czarina by her husband, who also invested her with the purple mantle of the Order of St. Andrew. n Moscow, May 28.—The proclamation issued by the czar on the occasion of his coronation prescribes varioxis remissions, of which the following are the principal: All arrears of taxes in European Russia and Poland are remitted and the land tax is reduced by half for ten years. The sentences of exiles in Siberia are materially reduced, political offenders receiving further remissions, with the restoration of their civil rights in certain cases. The ex-ministers of the interior and justice are empowered to submit to the czar deserving cases of. those punished after a regular trial. Those persons who shared in the Polish rebellion who are not guilty, of murder, cruelty, arson or robbery, are exempted from the police siipervision decreed in 1883, and are granted full freedom of residence if they return to their own country and take the oath of allegiance. .. .. /' CHURCH INSURANCE.

E. church has adopted a resolution providing for an immense church insurance company to compete with the great companies of the world.

"We might just as well embark in the dry goods or the drug business," he said. "The whole scheme, if adopted, will wind up with. a scandal which will shake the very foundations of the great Methodist church." Other delegates expressed similar opinions, but the resolution, organizing an insurance company, was adopted amid great enthusiasm. FEAR DEATH SENTENCES.

Many of the peasants had walked long distances in order to be present, while others more fortunate had arrived in the city in Vehicles of every description. Great booths had been constructed on the plain, and from them were distributed free food, free beer, and also mugs as souvenirs of the occasion, This free feast has always been the popular feature of the coronations. The crush was fearful and those in front were gradually crowded against the barriers in front of the booths, which finally gave way. Hundreds of men, women and children were thrown downj and to stumble or fall meant death or serious injury, but no power could check the crowd, many of whom were In a condition of panic. The authorities were helpless, and for a time the scene baffled description. Many people were killed, by being crushed against the barriers before they gave way, and a great number met their deaths by being trampled upon. Finally with the aid of troops the panic was stayed, and then the work of succor began. The dead were found in heaps. An official statement places the dead at 1,138 and the injured at 470. ' FATAL FALL FOR FIFTY. A Street Cur 1'lungcs Through a Bridge •it Victoria, B. C. VICTORIA, B. C., May 27.—A terrible accident occurred here.

Two cars left Government, :;t,rcct with 100 people. The first got over Point Ellico bridge, which crosses Victoria arm. safely, but when the other was about half way over the middle span of the bridge, about 150 feet in length, gave way and the car plunged into the water, some 100 feet below. The car was completely submerged and all on board were drowned with the exception of some of those who were standing on the platform and who, escaping injury from the falling timbers, managed to save themselves by using the floating ruins of the bridge and thus got ashore, lumbers of the bodies have already' been gotten up and the work of identification is proceeding. It is believed that when the list is completed it will reach fifty. VICTORIA, B. C., May 30.—The work of rescue at the scene of the bridge disaster was completed when the last of the bodies was recovered by divers.

LEVERING.' which has benn a feature of the platform for years past. The beaten forces bolted the regular convention and took . initial steps for the formation of a new party. The committee on platform presented two reports to the convention. The majority or "narrow gauge" report declares its agreement with the United States •Supreme court that statistics of every state shows more crime and misery result from use of ardent liquor dealers corrupt legislation and make good government impossible; that the party is unalterably opposed to the drink traffic and declares for its total suppression for .beverage purposes, rejecting all compromise measures, whether license, local option, taxation or public control. Wage earners' attention is called to the enormous waste caused by the liquor 'traffic at the cost of production and that the success of the Prohibition party will remove this great burden from industry; that they stand for good gov- iernment, honestly and economically ad- 'ministered; that there is no greater Iperil to the nation than the competition of political parties for the liquor vote iand calls upon voters to enforce the declaration of the churches against tlie 'liquor traffic. The minority report, which was presented by the broad gangers, has the following declaration on the money question: • "That all money should be issued, by the government only and without the intervention of any banking association. It should be based upon the wealth, stability and integrity of the nation, should be a full legal tender for all debts, public and private, and should be of sufficient volume to meet the demands of the legitimate business interests of the country, and for the purpose •of honestly liquidating all our outstanding coin obligations we demand the Jree 'and unlimited coinage of silver a ,gold, at a ratio of 16 to 1, without con- i'sulting any other nation." ' • Other plonks in the platform declare against the manufacture or sale of in- 'toxicaiits for beverage purposes . The use of liquors for medical and other legitimate purposes controlled by the state, Equal rights of suffrage for both sexes is favored and alien acquisition of land opposed. Government control of . railroads, only English in the public schools, and no public fund for sectarian institutions, election of president .and vice-president by popu- ;lar vote, liberal pensions, amended immigration laws, none but citizens to vote and naturalized . citizens . to .vote only after being naturalized a year, are 'other recommendations. . The first seven planks, including t one favoring woman's suffrage, were then taken up, and as they did not differ materially in either report, were ladopted. The debate continued unti •nearly 6 o'clock, when a vote was finally reached, which resulted 387 fpr 427 against the free silver plank. Then the cqnvention was thrown into confusion by the action of R, H. Pattou, qf Illinois, whp presented a substitute for the entire platform as far as adopted ;The new platform excluded everything 'but prohibition, even woman suffrage ,and was the narrowest kind of a "narr irow guage" decoration, r After a sharp 'debate 'in which, Mrs. Helen M.

He was elected to the senate in 1887 to fill 'an unexpired term, and was re-elected In 1389 and 1895.

Mr. Chandler also attracted public at-' tention when Senator Voorhees of In-j diana once gave his nose a severe tweak in the senate chamber.

"Tha main principle," says Lord Cromer,' "upon which the work of reform inl Egypt has been based from the begin-j ning may be summed up in a single, phrase—European head and Egyptian! hands.
