Chair Company's Factory Completely Destroyed. CLINTON, August lij.—One of the conference met asrain at Tophaneh Kinsk. and Tewfik Pasha, minister for foreign affairs, subjected fresh proposals regarding the evacuation of Thessaly. the indemnity and other issues involved. This is likely to cause a tedious delay. The difficulty seems to turn on tiie question of evacuation. The powers informed Greece that Turkey lacked the means to withdraw her troops from Thessrly unless a million pounds of indemnity were paid down. They asked the Greek government if it eonld not advance this sum. Greece replied that this course would be impossible, except by the aid of a foreign loan, which the proposed scheme of control precluded. CONSTANTINOPLE, August 13.— Placards have been placed on the walls of all the monasteries demanding a change in the system of government in the Turkish empire and declare that otherwise blood will flow as during the Armenian massacres. CONSTANTINOPLE. August 14.—Vehhi Pasha has arrived in Thessaly with thirty-five boxes containing medals and eight boxes filled with swords of honor to be distributed among the men and officers of the victorious Turkish army in the conquered province. The jeweled sword to be presented to Edhem Pasha, the eom- mander-in-chief of the Turkish army occupying Thessaly. is reported to ba valued at £4.000 WEYLER DEFEATED. since the general government assumed jurisdiction of the subject in 1SS2. The number of arrivals from aii countries, according to the treasury statistics, during the last fiscal year was 230.S3:!. a decrease as compared with the previous year of 112.43.'.. The lightest immigration of any previous year was in 1S&5. when the number from all countries was 270.048. The year of heaviest immigration was the first of the period beginning with 1SS2, when the arrivals numbered 788.99?. During the entire period of federal supervision 7.432,010 have entered the United States. The arrivals of Russian Jews for the past year numbered 22.7.~>0. as against 45.137 for the fiscal year ended June 30. 1SW>. Italy furnished the greatest number of immigrants, 4.">.431, a decrease of 8.U29 from last year. ! The cause of the heavy Italian immi- ! gration of 1SOP was assigned to the i war of Italy with Abyssinia, but the figures for the last year are not abnormal, having been exceeded by several years of the period. Since 1832 there has been a large and steady decrease in German immigration. It will be seen that the number of German immi grants during the first year of government supervision exceeded the immi gration from all countries during the last year. THE MINERS' STRIKE.

"The great crops and the haste of foreigners to liny and ship wheat, in view of the shortage elsewhere, have made the week memorable. Taking of profits by a pool lowered the price 3 cents on Saturday, but it has since risen 5 cents. Western receipts, slow in July, have in two weeks been 7.239.133 bushels, against 6,722,362 last year. In all the great industries n large demand for products appears, with strong speculation in materials and in intormediate products.

NEW YOKK, August I.").—The Havana oorrespondent of the Herald learns on what seems to be the best authority that Captain General Weylev has sent his resignation to Madrid. This report is generally believed to be true. There is no doubt that the resignation of General Weyler . is due to the assassination of Senor Canovas del Castillo, the premier of Spain, through whose personal wishes Captain General Weyler was retained in Cuba. The report of General Weyler's resignation is a cause for sat isfaction among Cuban sympathizers and conccntrados. who, in the advent of another chief of the loyal Spanish troops in Cuba, see only relief from the '-policy of conciliation'' which has resulted in such suffering to the pacificoes of Cuba. MISSOUR1AN GOES TO RUSSIA. K. A. Ilitrhcoek, of St. Louis, the Minister to St. Petersburg;. ST. LOUIP, August K!.—Special to the Globe-Democrat from Washington says: Ethan Allen Hitchcock, of St. Louis, has accepted the Russian mission. Hitchcock has returned to St. Louis to put his affairs in order to go to St. Petersburg. Close friendship between the president and Hitchcock has existed many years. As one of the pioneer plate glass manufacturers of the country, Hitchcock has been in Washington a great deal during the tariff legislation, and these visits promoted the friendship. Mr. Hitchcock is a highly successful busiriess man. Hides Are Dutiable. WASHINGTON, August 13.—Assistant Secretary Howell has decided that the hides of American cattle slaughtered abroad are dutiable, on being returned to the United States, at the rate of !."> per cent ad valorem, under section 137 of the new tariff. It is held that taking hides from cattle, salting and drying them, materially changes and improves their condition as an article of commerce, so that the article imported is entirely different from that exported. Philippine Revolt. MADKID, Auirust 14.—According to an official dispatch from Manilla, Philippine Islands, a serious revolt and outbreak have taken place at the military prison at Papasmaga. In the effort to restore order two Spanish soldiers were killed and seventy-three insurgents. Many were wounded ot both sides. Uuildin? Trades' Strike at Chicago. Chicago, Aug. 16.—The strike ordered by the Building Trades' council on ill school buildings was inaugurated •esterday. Nearly all work was stopped. :he only exceptions being school build- :ngs which the members of the committee appointed by the board of business agents were unable to reach. It s estimated that 2,500 men are affected by the strike. By to-night it is confidently asserted that not a man connected with any one of the twenty-two branches of organized labor in the Building Trades' council will have failed to quit his job on a school building. Not only the union men are affected, but the men employed directly by thp school board must go out. Killed at a liaru Raising. Bellaire, O., Aug. 16.—At a barn raising on the farm of W. W. Grove, in Kirkwood township, north of here, a large number of neighbors were in attendance assisting in the work, when, without a moment's notice, a heavy beam fell, killing one man instantly and fatally injuring four others. The dead: Charles Brown, aged 22. The injured: David Gordon, Frank Semple, Winfleid Talbert, Welcly Shepherd. Inspired by Ooiu Piiul's Minister. Berlin, Aug. 1(3.—It is creditably stated that the articles which were published Thursday by the Post, Tage- blatt and National Zeitung, attacking Great Britain's claim to suzerainty over the Transvaal, and declaring the Transvaal does not recognize such claim, were inspired by Dr. Leyds, the plenipotentiary of the South African Republican to the European governments. Hint at Kulton. Fri.TON, 111., August 14.—A. party of Rock Islanders came to Fulton on a special train for the purpose of forcibly moving the records of the Modern Woodmen to Rock Island. , The t'ul- tonites objected and a riot ensued, in which a dozen persons were badly injured. The Fnltonites got the best of it. and 100 of the invaders were arrested. Information Relating to Patents. DKS MOINKS, Aug. 9.—Answers to correspondents that may be of general interest: 1. It. is very difficult to get a reissue after the lapse of two years from date of the original patent. Good excuse for delay may gain favorable consideration. 2. Any subject matter in a patent that is covered by a distinct claim therefor may be the subject of u distinct contract, license or sale, without including the entire invention aud patent grouted therefor. ii. For the first fee. %'?Q, we can protect for two years. Two years public use of a patentable invention is a bar to a patent and dedicates the invention to the public. Experimental use may be more than two years without forfeiting the inventor's right to a patent. 4. There is no such law as you suggest to protect innocent purchasers. The owner of a patent may sue the maker, vender and user. If a manufacturer is an iuf ringer, he cannot give a good title, to the purchaser and user of his contraband goods. Our practice is not confined to Iowa. Inventors in other states can have our services upon the same terms as Hawk- eyes. Tnos. G. AS i) J. RALPH OKWIG, Solicitors of Patents. Miss .Fairbanks Marries. Indianapolis, Iiul., Aug. 16.—Miss Adelaide Fairbanks, the only daughter of Senator Fairbanks, and Dr. Horace H. Allen, Jr., at the head of the Allen Surgical institute, were quietly married Friday by Rev. Frank O. Ballard. It was a love match, and while the young couple dl-l not elope, the mur- ilage was without the knowledge <n' consent of the bride's parents. A theological student visited the Chicago jail and there prayed with some of the prisoners. While thus engaged, so iu of the prayerful prisoners combined business with their devotions, and picked the student's pock* ets, taking his watch and pnrse. A curious stone, called the "ilma- kiur," is found in Finland. Tho people use it as a barometer, because in foul weather it turns black, or blackish gray, while when flue weather is approach ing it becomes white.
