crop report for July 1 was very favora
ble as to cotton, showing a better con

years, and satisfactory as to wheat, the
improvement in spring having nearly
balanced the Lss of condition in winter
wheat. Corn is in tine condition, with
small increase in acreage. From many
northwestern cities social reports show
distinct improvement in trade becau-e

the best for years. The general average

show still larger gains. Definite agree

hope, but for the reduction in rates
threatened by the interstate commission,
which the railroad officials declare will
take more money from the companies

wars, the railroads have not been swell

receiverships for the half year covering

1,380 miles, while foreclosures for the
half year covered $92,000,'00 of stocks
and bonds of M30 miles of road. The

city, extending along the line to Park

St. Josf.fh, Mo., July 12. The Union
Electric Street railroad was sold to John
S. Harris and L. B. Newcomb of New
York city for $400,000. Harris and
Newcomb are largely interested in the
People's railroad, which has bought all
of the other car lines, and this transfer
gives the People's line a monopoly of the
street railroads of St. Joseph.
Gold Going Abroad.
New York. July 12.. Foreign bank
ers ordered $1,000,000 more gold, mak
ing thus far $2,000,000 to go by to-day's
steamer. It is expected that $10,W0,000
will be shipped next week. The move

financial crisis in Buenos Ayres.

ST. Paul, Minu., Jaly 12. The de
partments of elementary education, in
dustrial education and manual training
and music education held meetings.
President Canfield said: "Many of the
teachers have been asking me if we
coidd not make St. Paul the jermanent
place of meeting of the association."
The officers of the First rejriment,
which is in camp at Lake City, Minn.,
came in to attend the governor's recep
tion to the teachers at the state Capitol.
There is considerable hot feeling over
the way President Canfield shut down
on the presidential discussion. Opio
nents of President-elect Garrett say
they will not let the matter rest.
It a pilars that a year ago when thtj
convention was in nession that the wifn
of President Canfield wrote a letter to a
friend in which reference was made not
altogether complimentary in its nature
as regards the southerners. This letter
was published and was back to the con
vention before it adjourned its session.
It made the biggest kind of row, and
it is now understood that the move to
put Mr. Garrett in the presidential chair
was made in order to placate the south
ern element. It is understood that
Treasurer Harris was a candidate and
was the choice of a large number of del

Boston, July 12. Muldoon's letter
concerning John L. Sullivan, printed in
a New York paper, was shown to Sulli
van. After reading it he cried: "That
snake-in-the-grass has hounded me with
out reason for weeks. He is a snivel
ing snipe, a frog, a vijer, a scoundrelly
blackguard. He calls me a liar. Why,
his very letter proves him a liar of the
deepest dye. He s a when he
says he didn't write the letter to the
southern authorities. He is a proven
liar, as I saw the letter with my own
eyes." Continuing, Sullivan said that
his courage has been proven on inany a
hard fought field, and Muldoon's re
flections thereon could not hurt him.
He had refused to meet that "little
sneak, Kilrain," but if Muldoon could
show $2.."00 in cash he might le tempted
to fight. But Muldoon hasn't 2"i00 cents
that are properlj- his own. It is a lie
that he ever asked Muldoon to train
him for the Jackson fiht.
A Stubborn murderer Creates a Scene
on the Oallows.
Vancovek, B. C, July 12. A ghastly
scene occurred at the hanging of Ed
ward D. Gallagher, for the murder of
Louis May. Fifteen hundred people
witnessed the execution. A priest tried
to talk with Galldghor on the scalfold,
but the condemned man said he was not
going to hang and did not care anything
about eternity. When the sheriff
told him he could speak he stammered
out a few words about being sorry to
apiear in that position. When the
command was given to pinion his arms
Gallagher resisted so desperately that
it Took six men three minutes to secure
him. After the k cap had been ad
justed the sheriff asked Gallagher to be
a man and tell whether he killed May.
Gallagher's last words were: "Its none
of your d d business."

Milwaukee, July 12. George H.
Foster, who is one of the pillars of
Methodism in Milwaukee and a former
prominent member of the Summerfield
church, has gone east to defend himself
against charges preferred by Dr. A. J.
Kynett of Philadelphia, secretary of the
Church Extension Society of the Metho
dist Episcopal church, alleging a misap
propriation of missionary funds by Mr.
Foster. From statements of Mr. Fos
ter's friends, the charges appear to have
been made through a misunderstanding
of the facts
In the Third Round.
Elizabeth, N. J., July 12. A prize
fight took place here between the heavy
weights, John Dwyer of this city and
William Dunn of Bayonne. Dwyer
was not in very good condition. The
fight was a fierce one, but although
Dwyer was game he was knocked out
in the third round.

New York, July 12. The body of a
man was found in Flushing bay, with

grs Protection for American Citizens.
Carlisle, Pa., July 12. President
Harrison, in his reply to the invitation
attend the National Grangers' exposi
tion at Williams' Grove on "Republican
Day," Aug. 27, says:
It will give me the greatest pleasure
to accept, providing my public duties
will not prevent. I have a great love
for the jeople of your grand old state,
aa 1 especially for the farmers, and
would be pie-.i.-ed to address them 0:1 the
t-.irilt" ipie--tion, so as to educate them
more thoroughly as to what is necessary
for their maintenance and life. The
tarhf question which is now before the
people is the most important question of
the day, ami the people should be thor
oughly educated on it. There is no
doubt that the farming element of this
country is the backbone of this
government, or any other free goven.
ment. It is necessary that they should
understand this qiestion so that they
can choose between free trade and pro
tection one of which would be ruinous
to the country and the other of which
would be prosjerity to the government.
This free trade ques'-.ion is a dangerous
one to handle, and if it should win in
'M it would cause great distress
throughout the laud something never
experienced by the American people.
Hoping that 1 can be with you and that
my public duties will not interfere I am
yours truly, Benjamin Harrison.

Washington, July 12. Mr. Gibson
argued against the proposed subsidies
for ships, but in favor of moderate ps
tal subsidies. He spoke of the import
ance of establishing a line of steamship;
to trade with the Congo couutry; of
building a government dry dock at New
Orleans, and of reforming the tarit by
a.iiniUiiig commodities from tne Soui.i
American states at lower rates of duties.
But there was nothing, he said, more
destructive of the shipping interest-
than an attempt to tax the farmers and
producers of the country in order to
supply funds for shipbuilders.
Mr. Coke stated some of the reasons
why he opposed the bill to grant sub
sidies in aid of the merchant marine.
That proposition, he said, commenced at
the surface and not at the root of the
trouble. The cause which had, from
1.V to 18fii. pulled down the carrying
trade of the American merchant marine
to 75 per cent, of imports and exports to
lo per cent., was not a surfaew cause or
a casual catise. The first great leading
cause of the decadence had been the
substitution of iron and steel ships fcr
v .lit-. i chips. To that original eau-e
had been added the legislation that for
bade American citizens from buying
foreign built ships and the tariff legisla
tion that tended to isolate the United
States from other nations in regard to
Mr. Vest offered as a substitute lor
the bill as to the American merchant
marine a provision for free ships, to le
used only in the foreign carrying trade,
not in the coastwi-e or lake trade.
The bills went .er without action,
and the senate adjoured.
Mr. Perkins of Kansas presented the
conference report of the bill granting
the right of way across the Mille Lacs
Indian reservation to the Little Falls,
Mille Lacs and Lake Superior Railroad
company. Further proceedings under
the call were dispensed with and tiie
conference report was adopted 100 u
Mr. Conger of Iowa presented the con
ference report on the silver bill.
Mr. Bland raised the question of con
sideration, on which the vote was 104 to
114. This was a strict party vote, ex
cept that Mr. Rogers of Arkansas voted
iu the affirmative so that he might move
a reconsideration. This motion was
made useless by the discovery that no
quorum was present.
A call of the house was then ordered,
and 104 members (more than a quorum)
On suggestion of Mr. Blount of Geor
gia, it was agreed to debate the confer
ence report four hours. the previous ques
tion to be considered as ordered at the
end of that time.
At 4:25 the house took a recess until 8
o'clock, the evening session to be de
voted to private pension bills.
Protection for Americans.
Washington, July 12. Information
has been received in this city that
trouble is imminent bet wee :i Salvador
and Guatemala, arising on', of the re
cent change in the govern. nut f the
former country. It being thought
advisable to have some American war
vessels near at hand, orders were issued
for the United States steamers Ranger
and Thetis, now at San Francisco, to
proceed at once to the wet coast of
Central America. These vessels will
not be expected to interfere in the
troubles between the two countries ex
cept in so far as may be necessary for
the protection of American interests,
and to afford a place of refuge to Ameri
can subjects in case it should be re
quired. The Election Bill.
Washington, July 12. Speculation
on the possible action of the caucus to
be held to-night or Monday was very
vigorous. Republican senators are di
vided in their opinions. Some of them
do not believe that the change in the
rules which, it is conceded, is a neces
sary preliminary to the passage of the
election bill, will be agreed to in the
caucus. The majority of the senators
present at the caucus Thursday night
favor such a change, and a gi-eat many
Republican senators were very positive
in the expression of a belief that the
federal election bill will le passed. The
Democratic members of the senate ex
press the confident belief that the bill
will not be taken up. In this vague
condition the subject must remain until
another caucus is held.
