He said they' had not shown irreparable injury would result to them nor established the legal conclusion that McClain's copyright to "McClain's Annotated Code" was held in trust for them jointly. It was not clear that McClaiu's contract to do no work that would impair the sale of McClain's annotated code h&d been violated. On the contrary the damage to Callaghait & Co.'s publication resulted from the legislature's determination to issue a new code and if McClain did not annotate it somebody else would.

The average of 110 reports received show a yield of 2:?.01 bushels per acre. A conservative estimate, based on the information we have received, places the probable acreage at 1,564,4 2$.

The foreign ambassadors located at Constantinople have recently received a circular letter from the Armenian Diishnak-Xutium committee, almost identical with that sent to them in ISitO, declaring that the Armenians are tired of waiting- and aro resolved to take action for the redress of their grievances. At Athens recently a meeting of over 3,000 people adopted an address to King George, urging him and the government to reject the proposed peace treaty between Greece and Turkey, and to resume the hostilities which were interrupted by the truce. Tho entire press, however, and a great majority of the public of Athens condemn the agitation for a resumption of the war. London dispatch: The Spanish government has approached the powers with a view of coming to an understanding as to the best means of dealing with anarchists. The measures to be adopted jointly would be the formation of an international police force to watch anarchists in all countries, a revision of the treaties of extradition, possibly a penal colony and the organization of a series of penalties for the punishment of anarchist crimes, to be inflicted by all members of the international alliance. To arrive at this understanding it would not be necessary to hold a congress. The matter would be settled by a conference of ambassadors, if at all. Already it is said that the three empires have accepted Spain's proposal and Italy as well. Tho Italian government 1ms special reason to take oven desperate measures, for Italy has been supplying the executive agents of the behests of anarchy in a fashion intensely humiliating to her national pride. But it is not at ull clear that Great Britain or France will assent, and the impression prevails that the United States will refuse absolutely.

Yucatan special, says twelve persons were killed and several injured in a riot which occurred in the pla/.ii in front of the municipal palace.

CONSTANTINOPLE, August 20.—The question of the peace settlement between Greece and Turkey has now passed out of the hands of the ambassadors of the powers and become the subject of negotiations direct between the European cabinets. Germany objects to the Marquis of Salisbury's proposal that Greece should be asked to state precisely the means she possesses for paying the indemnity, and insists upon the signing of the peace preliminaries as already determined. •Austria partly shares Germany's views, and Italy will agree to Germany's policy if the powers agree upon it. Russia and France are inclined to support the Marquis of Salisbury. CONSTANTINOPLE, August 27.—Lord Salisbury has made fresh and important proposals in the matter of the settlement of the indemnity due Turkey from Greece. He suggests that Great Britain, France and Russia jointly guarantee the indemnity loan and control the revenues set ifpnrt for the purpose of meeting this obligation.

The Afridi rising in northern India has assumed a serious phase. The indications are that the entire tribe are in revolt, which,weans that a protracted and desperate campaign confronts tho British troops.

The dispatch also indicated that Kadain was in great peril, while Mich- ni and Shabkadr were munaced by a fierce horde advancing clown the Khy- bL>r Pass. The latter had been cou- lectcfl by the so-called Wad lilollah. a fanatical Mohammedan muezzin, who has inlljimcd tho whole country against British rule.

The president W4s also authorized to negotiate a loan „« $2,500,000, the loan to go into effect within two months after it becomes operative and all customs to be pav able only in gold. Salvador's present plight is clue to the slump J n silver which forced the country into a con clition more serious than ever before existed.
