Fearful Mortality In Chicago.
CHICAGO , April 1. There were 150
funerals to sadden the joy ojf ibeauti-
ful Easter day in Chicago. So numer
ous were the funerals that , a person
standing on a street corner in down
town localities could count three and
four passing in various directions at
the same time.
Five funeral processions passed the
crossing of Washington and Clark
streets within thirty minutes time be
tween 2 and 3 o'clock.
The deaths ran almost up to one
thousand in this city last week and the
health department and all prominent
physicians attribute the great mortality
to the prevalence of la grippe.
The sanitary conditions seem to
count for less with this disease than in
all others. Almost three hundred men
of the 3,000 employes of the South side
cable and horse car system are off duty.
The fire department has many men
down with the grip , and the police de
partment has a long sick list.
The demand was so great for hearses
Sunday that the supply was exhausted.
Several funerals in consequence , was
held the day following.
"At this rate this week's death
record will be much larger than that
of last week. " said - Dr. Tomlinson of
the health department.There were
150 death certificates up to noon Mon
day to commence the week with. Those
of last Monday were but fifty-six in the
same length of time. We will soon
have to print more certificates if this
keeps on. "
Sugar In Bond.
NEV YORK , April 1. Huge quanti
ties of refined sugar now in bond under
the McKinley bill or bound to various
distributing points throughout the
country are unique in the history of
the trade. To prevent if possible a
scarcity of sugar at one distributing
point and relieve us much as possible
the refineries and warehouses in their
vicinity , the privilege allowed by the
government of transporting the sugar
in bonded cars and from thence to
bonded warehouses 'in cities to which
the sugar has been sold and consigned ,
is being pretty generally taken advan
tage of by the refining companies of
this city. Up to the present time fully
75,000 barrels of refined sugar have
been shipped from this city of which
amount by far the greater portion has
been consigned to Chicago and St.
Louis. The amount of sugar refined
daily in Philadelphia refineries , all of
which are refining under bond , is over
ten thousand barrels , of which num
ber 7,500 barrels daily are being loaded
in bonded cars and shipped. The re
mainder are stored in refineries and
warehouses in that city for local dis
tribution. It is estimated that by April
1 the product of Philadelphia refine
ries refined in bond will have reached
nearly if not quite two hundred thous
and barrels or about sixty-seven mill
ion four hundred thousand pounds of
sugar. The number of pounds of raw
sugar now being consumed daily in the
manufacture of refined sugars is about
four million two hundred and fifty

German Paper * Criticise Blaine.
BERMN , April 3.The National
Zeitung says that Baron Fava's note
to Mr. Blaine is perfectly correct , add
ing : "Italy is quite right in not wish
ing to discuss American institutions
and in calling attention to the princi
ples of the international law. "
The Vossiche Zeitung yesterday re
marked that Italian news is rea&sur-
ing in the face of the hostile tone of |
the American press , and hopes more
reliance can be placed upon the former
than on the 'bombastic" utterances of
Mr. Blaine. who is accustomed to hide
weak reasons with strong words. "
