' The rebellion in Colombia, South America, has taken several interesting turns. The rebels captured the city of Colon after quite a spirited struggle. One week later Colon was surrendered to the United States authorities, who, in turn, delivered it to the regular Colombian government. The camp occupied by union miners near Madisonvillo, Ky., was taken pos session of by state troops by order of the court. No resistance was made. - Sugar refiners interested in the Ger man "Kartell" are busy asserting that the "Kartell" is not-a trust, but sim ply an "agreement" among refiners. A London cablegram to the New York World, Bpeaking on the subject of the "Kartell" makes this' interesting show ing: Tho alarming state of the sugar market 4s laid by British manufactur ers to a great secret " German trust called the "Kartell," which they have recently discovered. They say the German "Kartell" and bounty com bined will ruin within two years tho cane and beet sugar industry in other countries,; notably Cuba and the other 'West Indies, unless " checked. The overthrow df this "Kartell" will be one of the' chief subjects of consideration at the Brussels conference. British firms are already in correspondence with leading American sugar interests, and tables are being drawn up to show the workings of the "Kartell" with a view to laying them beforo the govern ment at Washington. The British gov ernment will be urged to emppwer its representatives at Brussels to threaten retaliatory countervailing measures unless . the "Kartell" is broken" lip or ' modified. Germany now produces one third of the world's supply of beet sugar, of which she exports no less than 1,250,000 tons. This exportation, almost one-fifth of the 'world's avail able supply, would mean a loss to German manufacturers but for the "Kartell" and the bounty, which en able them not only to reap a handsome profit. but also control the sugar Comedy or Tragedy?

The "Kartell" is run secretly, but confidential reports show that It consists of an Ironclad combination of almost all producers and refiners to keep up the price of sugar in Ger many. This is done so successfully that tho German consumer pays three times as much for sugar as the Briton does for the same article iinportQd from Germany. The enormous profits due to 'these methods are 'pooled in the "Kartell" and divided upon an elab orate, ingenious scale,, and the surplus product is disposed, of at a slight loss in other European and Amerfcah mar kets, though even this deficit is often made up by the bounty. Tom L. Johnson, mayor of Cleve land, has been granted by tho supremo court of Ohio permission to file a peti tion in mandamus against the state board of equalization oh railroads. Mayor Johnson seeks to compel the re assessment of the railroad property at a valuation based upon tho market value of its securities. Mr. Johnson contends that the railroads of Ohio which are on the assessment list for $117,000,000 are appraised at only 23 per cent of their actual value, while real estate in Ohio is appraised at CO per cent of its real value. He asks that railroad valuation be increased so as to brjng them up to a GO per cent basis. This would make the railroad assessment $356,000,000 instead of $117,000,000. A terrible wreok occurred on the Wabash railroad November 26, one mile east of Seneca, Mich. It is re ported that at least eighty lives were lost, many passengers being cremated in the burning cars.

The seven men joined tha English army in 1863, intending to Fenianlze it. They were detected, tried for treason, and sentenced to bo shot. The sentences were commuted to life imprisonntent and later reduced to twenty years of penal servitude in Van Dieman's Land, the English penal col ony in Australia. In the spring ' of 1869 the whaling ship Catalpa was fitted out to rescue the convicts, but before its arrival O'Reilly had escaped from the island in an open boat. Ho was picked up by another American whaler and brought to this country.
