at the unloading point they would be
inspected where shipped, and would not

London, April 7. The Standard pub
lishe a review of the agricultural out
look, in the course of which it says:
The wheat crops of France and Rmisia
are much In-low the average. The de
ficiency will be at least 30,000,000 quart
ers. The paper adds: It ia expected
that the cold winds and frost have al
most destroyed the French croiai. Ger
many, Holland and Belgium all furnish
pessimistic reports. In Iioumanla there
is A decreased wheat area, and in India
there has been a bail wheat season. The
only exception is Hungary, where there
re better prospect, and it is almost
certain that the world's wheat consump
tion will exceed the production coin
puted. Whatever the magnitude of
America crop may be, it won't be siiih"
cient to cover the European deficit, thus
compelling an extensive draft upon the
resource for tne intra year in succes

the Kensington palace was useless and
the country would be better off without

where it was or who lived there. Kir
George Trevelyan sustained the esti

were historic; mementoes of considera

reduce the vote for Bushey honse on the
ground ttiat it was occupied by tne

Ottawa, Ont., April 7. Minister ol
Marine Tinnier, speaking on the subject
of the treatment of Canadian fishing
vessels in Newfoundland worts, said
that oflicial notice had been received
some time ago that the Newoundiand
authorities intended to rigorously en
rorce tne nait act tins year, 1 he
act makes it un offense for
any Canadian, United States or
r rench fishing vessel to buy
or take bait in Newfoundland without
a license. It was rumored some time
ago that free licenses were to be issued
to United States vessels, while Canadian
vessels were to lie discriminated airniiist.
The result of such a policy of discrimi
nation, Mr, Tupper thought, would be
the repeitlof the Newfoundland bait
act, which was allowed by the British
government to go into effect in 17 only
on tiio express Mtptilutton thut it would
not Is enforced ng iiast Canada. The
Dominion government hn already com

the necessity of continuing the exemp

Among other thing Talbcrt said that
the Alliance had indorsed the Ht. Louis
platform at Ocala and did not propose
to support any man wuo is opposed to
tne ueiuano or these conventions,
"There is," he said, "a movement on
foot, in which the labor organization
of tiie United States are interested, to
nave a convention in February, 1802,
It is a people' move. We demand i
change in the monetary system of the
country and if wa can't get it in on
way we win get It another, we Intend
to have reform or we will know the
reason why. The Alliance want to
bring about a peaceful and quiet revo
lution, out if wa cannot come by tooce-
f ul methods it mast come by some other
method. I am against Cleveland for
president. My candidate baa to up-
port tne Alliance piauorm.
Talbert is regarded here as the ex
ponent of the Alliance sentiment. It
may be regarded as almost certain that
South Carolina will not be in the Demo
cratic column in 1802 if there ia a third
party candidate in the field.

Rathburn, superintendent of the Mis
souri Pacific, whose territory include
about a thousand mile of road north
and west of Kansas City, has had re
port aa to the crop prospect from all
ni subordinate ami from every station
in hia territory. He say they are very
gratifying, the best in the history of the
road and that the realization will equal
the anticipation. Northern Kansas and
southern Nebraska will have the largest
yield of wheat ever known. The acre
age was never before so large. Farmer
wbo suffered by the drouth lost year
have seemingly given all their attention
to wheat this season rather than risk
corn, which matures so late in the vear.
This, however, does not mean that there
will be a shortage of corn, as the farm
ers have Much a good wheat prospect
that they are getting ready to try corn,
The roadmaster write that in the
Solomon valley, where the drouth was
o bad last year, the ground U now wet

Th. Direct Tax BilL
Washington, April 7.The passage
of the direct tux bill ' has caused an
enormous amount of extra work to be
thrust upon the officials of the 'reasury
department. From all the statrs in the
Union letters are received daily inquir
ing about the repayment, and there ia
a wide spirit of luiKannrehonsion as to
just what the direct tax was. From
imiiana to Nebraska, from Texas to
Maine, letters nave come inquiring
about the chance of securing repay
ment by pcrsoua.who believe tTiey have
paid the direct tax to the government
commissioners. In many instances in
ternal revenuo receipts are sent to sub
stitute the claims, but of course the
treasury can do nothing for the claim
ants, as the tax collected in all the
northern stales waa collected from the
tatea themselves and not from indi
