World's Exposltloa.
Chicago, July U. The Cbicago and
Alton road bat no intention of inau
gurating rate war, but after the meet
ing of tbe managen regarded ittelf at
free and independent line, rnled oat
of tht Western Passenger association
and at liberty to adopt any tneotnrea
that may be required to preserve equal
ity with itt competitor! without wait
ing to consult anybody.
Tbe Alton management gave it ont
that tbey are determined, to avoid
trouble at long at tbe associated line
evince tbe tame disposition and will
Dot take tbe initiative in any step likely
to bring about a demoralization of pas
senger rate. Tbe Alton people also say
that if they are forced into a fight ther
will endeavor to make a rigorous onu.
Should tbe other western roadt pro
ceed to make reduced excursion rate
from competitive point in tbe territory
into wbicu the Alton cannot reach on
account of the boycott, the latter will
immediately proU-ct itself by a reduc
tion in local rata.
Chairman Finley hat called a special
meeting of the Western Passenger asso
elation for next Thursday to past upon
matter that were postponed at tueir
regular meeting. Trouble is looked for
at this meeting. .The Bock Island and
tbe Chicago. St. Paul and Kansas City
roadt, wbicn have defended the Alton
position, then will, it it surmised, re
fuse to bind themselves to any agree
ment that will place them at a disad
vantage, at competitors of the Alton. .A
disruption of the association, it is said,
may yet ensue unless the Alton is taken
back into tlie fold.

The Telede and Chicago Be Lin.
Goshew, Ind., July 14, The pro
moters of the new Toledo and Chicago
Bee line were here on their tour of in
spection. The bead of the enterprise
says positive'y that the line will be
built as rapidly as money and teans can
do it. The contractor for the building
of tbe road, Benjamin Reynolds, was
with the party, and states that within
sixty days hi will have 2,000 teams on
the road and that be will put the road
through faster than any similar lint
bal ever bwn constructed.
This will )e the shortest line between
Toledo and Chicago, and will afford an
entrance for tbe Canadian Pacific, woo
will use it for a short line to Cbicago. x
LlatlUd Tickets.
rery little b'idway has been made in
the movement to abolish unlimited
tickets in tbe territory of tbe trunk
lines of the Central .Traffic association,
and Western , Passenger association.
Tbe resolution adopted by the roads
east of Cbicago to abolish such ticket!
May 1 was never really put into effect
by all interested lines, and now th
scheme has received a backset that will
probably kill it entirely. Those road
having connection with what is known
as tbe Buffalo agreement havo repudi
ated the movement and declare their in
tention to continue doing business on
tbe old plan.

MNANCIAU SITUATION.
thlpwaat ot Moamy West to Help Harvatt
th Crop.
New York, Jnly 14. -The Tribune
says: Tha weekly bank statement indi
cated an unexpected movement of
money to the west. The first shipment
rendered necessary by the harvesting of
the crop was made last week. It is im
possible to predict the extent of the
movement or its effect upon the local
money market On the hypothesis that
tbe 41 per cent, bond will result in in
creasing the national bank circulation
by f 15.000,000, the money market will
be strengthened by the 1st of October
by from frlO.OnO.uoO to .M),000.000.
Whether tbit will be sufficient to meet
tbe requirements of the west for the
movement of the abundant crops can bo
determined only by the event. Banks,
as well as private capitalists, are forti
fying themselves in every possible way
and their action, which is conservative
and prudent, may prevent the monetary
crisis which they evidently fear. Tbe
exports of merchandise caused a fuller
supply of commercial bills, which wat
reflected in lower rates for foreign ex
change. At the end of the week tbt
market wat a little, steadier, closing at
$4.& and 4 .87 for lonf and short star
ling billti respectively, :

tively. There is a big fight on'at to where tht

DEPENDING ON UNCLE SAM,
Th rolled State Will furalsb the Ores!
of All ICurope,
Washinotos, July 14. A report on
the harvest prospects in Franc and
throughout all Enropt) has been received
at the state department from Coramer-J-lntCirC!3,ft
Lte?-, Pnaee.
lfle report snows that there
will be a crop, shortage, and
in conclusion says that not only
France, bnt all Europe is looking long
ingly to tbe wheat fields of tbe United
States. Last year many hoped that
Bouth America would help supply the
deficit, especially the Argentine Repub
lic, but today no mention is made of
those countries; all hope is btw.lt on tbe
Uuited States harvest. Tbe fact, as re
cently stated, is that the bread of Eu
rope must come from America.

Albany, July 14. Secretary L. B.
Proctor, of tbe New York State Bar as
sociation, said that tbe action of Law
yer Haire in appealing the electrocution
cases to tbe United States supreme
court for what seemed to be purposes of
delay only, would be called to the at
tention of the executive committee of
the association, which ' meets here in a
few days. He argued that the commit
tee's action has already been outlined
in the shape of a memorial asking con
grtss to take such steps as wdl restrict
appeals in such cases.

Wbitr Earth, Minn., July 14. Th
situation here is so serious that it is
feared General Merritt will have to
aend two or three companies of the
Third regiment to the White . Earth
reservation to prevent a riot and possi
ble massacre. Tbe Chippewa have
been in a state of open revolt for several
weeks. A delegation of Leech Lake
Indians came here to oenfer, and soon
after their arrival joined in a wil J
dance with the White Earth red men,.
The polios became 'alarmed at tbe
threatened outbreak, and to stop tbe
danca tore down the ball in which the
orgitof tbessvagea at taking place.
The Indian were jfkly incensed
over tbe Interfere H, and " bare
been holding meetif. with a , view
to gatting revenge. V dissatisfac
tion of the Indians bai resulted from
th tardiness of the Chippewa commis
sion in the matter of allotment of land
and the non payment by tbe govern
ment of several hundsfed thousand dol
lars damages, occaaJtasl by big over
flow in the conatraction of the Uppjr

amount of cash per capita was prom
ised the Indians, and the government s

debt in stock and I jriculturol imple
ments bos so inceuse4 them that tney
are in a mood to commit almost any

row ashore and compelled him to pull
them out to the sloop, which they found
to be a smuggler with a load of Chine e
intended for the United States. Ther
were ten Chinamen in the bold and alt
more on tbe shore ready to embark.

Co. and spread with tremendous rapid
ity. Soon the entire square bounded by
Popineau - road, St. Catherine, Shaw
anil Kent streets was in flaiuet, which
continued to spread. Hundreds of
thousands of dollars worth of property
is already consumed and it is impossible
to forecast the extent of the losses.
Never have the firemen bad such ex
periences as this morning, The heat
was so intense that the pipenien lay in
the street directing tbe hose, whilt
their comrades played water over them
to save them Iroui burning to death,
The flames at one time threatened St.
Bridget's and St. Luke's churches and
tbe great lying in hospital,

"Paris, July 14. There was consider-
wble excitement throughout Parij causel
by the report that President Carnot had
been shot. This rumor proved upon in
vestigation to be nntrue, but ther was
foundation for tbe report. The presi
dent was present at the ceremonies of
th official opening of a thoroughfare,
tbe Avenue de la Bepublique, Suddenly
man, wild-eyed and making insane
gestures, forced bis way through the
crowd and brushed past tha soldiers on
duty about th spot wers the cere
monies wera taking place. 'This man
walked np to tbe carriage ia which the
president had driven np to tbe new
avenue and fired a pistol at M. Carnot.
Just as he did so tbe mas shouted, "I
will see that there will be no mor baa
tile to be demolished."
President Carnot was undoubtedly
alarmed at what appeared to be a direct
attempt upon his life, but he was un
hurt and soon regained his entire pre.
enc of mind. The man who fired tbe
shot was promptly arrested by the police
and such wss the anger of the crowd
present that the officers had the great
est difficulty in protecting their pris
oner from becoming the victim of the
popular fury which he bad excited. At
it was it required th services of
strong force of police to escort the man
in safety to tb nearest police station
Upon arrival there the man's examina

tnndman and that he bad just b.ei re
leased from confinement in a lunatic
asylum.

Ottawa. Ont., July 14. There ti
great excitement in political circles over
the startling disclosures made before
various parliamentary committees of In
quiry uring the past few weeks, Tbe
evidence auueed thus far goes to
show that the public officials are cor
rupt and that an ntter state of demor
alization prevails in all public depart
ments. The Opposition feels very jubi
lant over the progress made from day
to day in unearthing fresh scandals.
It is confidently predicted that beforo
tbe session closes tbe government, al
ready reduced to a majority of twenty,
will find itself sitting on the Opposition
benches. Tbe various charges have
aroused the entire country, and the in
dependent newspapers do not hesitate
to declare that the administration ia
drifting into a state of chaos.
