LONDON , July G. The St , Petersburg cor
respondent of the Unity News says : ' 'The
convention with Russia was already prepared
when Gladstone resigned , therefore it only
requires Salisbury's signature. Thropbies
from the Pulikistl battle arrived at Askabad.
They include eight guns beating English
arms , dated 1830.
In the house oflords this afternoon Salis
bury stated ho would continue the policy of
Gladstone Iu regard to the negotiations with
llussia. In moving an adjournment of the
house ho said : A matter cf gravest importance-
was the recent negotiations with Russia in
regard to the frontier of Afghanistan. Ho
said as far as ho could judge tlio negotiations
between Russia and England had been con
ducted with an earnest desire to arrive at an
adequate settlement , but ho was bound to cay
the negotiations had not gone far enough to
enable him to speak positively. lie must ask
their lordships cot to attach too much im
portance to these negotiations ni final and
conclusive , oven when concluded , 113 the whole
condition of affairs in central Asia was very
uncertain and unsatisfactory. "Wo hope ,
ho continued , "to arrive at an amicable set
tlement of the differences in regird to the
ulfikar pass , which England had
promised the ameer would bo Included in
Afghanistan. What had boon promised
must bo kept. Whatever settlement
might be arrivad at it was nur duty to
skilfully advise and vigorously carry out
measures for the defense oi the Indian Iron-
tier. Furthermore wo should stretch out be
yond so that when the tide of war comes it
will not como near our defenses. These
preparations must bo promptly and ener
getically made , tnd I trust that this policy
will never be abandoned.
In cinctudiog his speech Lord Salisbury
said : "The present difficulty In Egypt ii
perhaos ono of the most complicated problems
that has ever bean submitted to the govern
ment. The difficulties ore enormoui and of
many kinds. Those difficulties now form the
subject of negotiations. It is , perhaps , rather
too early to express an opinion as to the issuo.
liofore deciding upon any remedy the gov
ernment must take counsel of those
best qualified by exporicuoo to guide
them. Their policy , should bo
steady and without osclllialion. One of
the most momentous issues was the defense of
the frontier of Egypt by .Hians , assisted
no doubt in some measure by ourselves ,
against fanaticism and barbarism. It is
pecpseary to establish a state of things so that
if wo eventually withdraw our protecting hand
Egypt would bo left safe. All of those ques
tions require time to settle. One principle
must animate , namely , so to weigh our stops
that , once taken , v > o must not retrace them ,
The military difficulty is a largo one , the po
litical difficulty is a greater ono.
"Still the question was whether the prov
inces in the Soudan , which had lately ceased
to bo practically under the control of Egypt ,
should be abandoned to their fate. The most
impoitant of all the Egyptian questions , how
ever , WAS the financial question , which was as
yet unsettled. Until this question was settled
nothing could be done. There was no alter
native between taking n steady , cautious , and
circumspect policy and in taking n course
which would cover England with shame ,
namely , to abandon Egypt to her fate.
Salisbury then referred to the domestic pol
icy of his government. lie said it was in
tended to avoid contentious legislation and to
promote only mich measures as were neces
sary. These would Include , perhaps , the
secretary for Scotland bill. lie would wind
up the session at the earliest date possible ,
and expressed the hope that the general elec
tions would ba held on November 17 ,
Lord Salisbury's statement lasted half an
hour , lie frequently emphasized the fact
that the khedive had throughout been loyal
to England , The house of lords then
adjourned ,
The earl of Carnarvon , lord lieutenant for
Ireland , eave statistics of crime in Ireland iu
recent years showing an immense decrease
since the passage of the crimes act , "Tha
government , " ho said , "under existing circum
stances , consider it Inadvisable to renew the
net. They trusted that a firm administration
of ordinary law would maintain the
tranquility. "
Mr. Charles Henry Ilopwood , an advanced
liberal , moved an amendment In favor of leg
islating as quickly as possible respecting the
oath of office. Sir Wilfred Lawson , radical ,
seconded the motion , Gladstone said ho held
the stronger views on the question of princi
ple' , behaving that the house had acted
unconstitutionally and illegally [ lib
eral chrors. ] Ho would support Mr , Hop-
wood. It was the duty of tha house
to legislate in the direction of removing an
existing grievance , The present parliament ,
throughout , had grievously wronged tha elec
toral priveleges of Northampton. It was
therefore tha duty of the liuuso to redress
that serious wrong [ cheers ] Gladstone
thought , however , that the scope of the
amendment should be narrower In dealing
with the case before them.
In the house of commons to day Mr. Brad-
laugh , escorted by Labouchere and Burt , both
radicals , advanced to the table with tha pur
pose of taking the oath , To this Hicks
Beach interposed objections and moved that
liradlaugh bo refused permission to swear ,
the ba directed
and that sergoant-at-arms
to exclude him from the precincts of
the house unless he engaged not to disturb the
proceedings , Tha motion was adopted by a
vote of 2U ( < to 219.
After the vote had boon tiken Bradlaiigh
re-advanced to the table and eald he would
obey the speaker's orders and withdraw , lie
appealed to the various constituencies against
the injustice done him , bowed and withdrew
from the house ,
Sir Michael Hicks Beach in reply to La-
bouchere said no communication had been re'
ceived from Russia with rep ard to the exported -
ported utterance cf Sir Randolph Churchil
that , "Russia has tricked , deceived and lied
to us as only Russia can. Sir Randolph , '
Beach added , "does not admit that his speed
was accruatoly quoted. "

NEW YORK , July C. The Herald's Valencia
cable says : The cholera is still slaying its
thousands and ten thousands. Nor is it sure
that the epidemic has yet done its worst. The
news from several afflicted districts is bettor ,
but this is partly attributed to the exodus
which has half j emptied Murcia , In Valencia
the mortality instead of diminishing grows
greater , During the days signs of death
are kept carefully out of sight ,
but at night the roada ara filled with
tha muflled sound of hearses rolling and feet
tramping onward to the suburban cemeteries.
All whom business or poverty does not tie to
the city have left to avoid the plague. Those
u'ntblo to flea perforce go about ai usual
but the crowded churches and thrones who
fairly besiege the laboratory of Dr. Ferran tell
their own tale. Cholera is ; on every tongue ;
every paper is full of cholera , Cholera , Asiatic
and sporadic , have been described to death.
Wnen you have seen a dozen cases you have
seen them all , The Interest of the present
epodemlc lies less in tbo symptoms , curious
though some of them are , than in all
important and absorbing question
"Can wo be protected against
cholera , and if so , how ? " After having vis
ited a few heuses and private dwellings in
fected with the plague , the Herald's corre
spondent devoted more of his attention to
lr , Ferran'a inocculatlon question. Foliow-
ing the example of the medical authorities
sent hero , he has endeavored to ascertain
whether Dr. Ferran's vaccination system Is
safe , and whether it is efficacious , Dr , Fer
ran's name is just now the battle cry , his par
tisans and fees are equally numerous. To
search for truth under thn present circum
stances is almost as difficult as to look for a
needle in a bale of hay. Time and patience
alone can fully settle the points at
issue. Careful inquiry , however , has
convinced you correspondent that whether
the anti-cholera vaccination is to be recom
mended or not , most of the investigators who
have so far vilited Dr , Ferran have been
carried away by generous and perhaps natur
al enthusiism and that the enquiries have lost
much of their value , owing to their not being
impartial. Dr. Ferran claims that by vaccin
ating with graduated virus he protects _ the
people against cholera for a certain time ,
provided five clear days are allowed for the
vaccine to work. As evidence of his success ha
gives you results obtained in fifteen or twenty
thousand cases In different places , but his
chief argument Is the lucce&s of his experi
ments at Aleira , which , out of it population
variously estimated at from 20,000 and
22,000 , 9.1CO persons have submitted to inoc-
culation and 7,500 , to re-lnocculation , Tha re
sults show that tha proportion of recoveries
among tbo Inosculated or ro-tnoccnlated tc
those among the non.inosculated people is ai
GO to 201 , . while the deaths from tbo same
categories compare as well to 120 , In. othoi
words , non-lnocculatod people who feel il
from cholera were four and a half times ai
these who were inocculatod , and the deaths
of non-inoculated people wore twelve timei
as numerous as those who were inoculated ,

CHICAGO , 111. , July G. The bulk of tLo
country and n largo portion of the city wcro
shaken out of the wheat deal to-day. After
having hold their purchases for several
months they at last found the load too heavy
for any ordinary shoulders. The talk on the
floor Is that W. T. Baker dumped in
the neighborhood of 3,000COO bushels
of August , of which T. / . . Leitcr was
the unlucky owner of about 1,000,000 bushels.
The fall was only ic as compared with both
the opening prices of to-day and the closing
quotations of 1'riday , but the tone of thomarket
was W3akor in a far greater ratio than the de
cline jn prices. At the opening there wcio
sales in the wheat pit all the way from SSfc to
8'Jo , but the official opening was put at S'Jo.
From this there waa a recovery to 83 c , the
top for the day , when the break began and
kept up quite steadily to the close the weak
conditions being than helped by unusual ac
tivity in the pork pit where prices wore grow
ing steadily cheaper through the effect of a
reported yellow fever outbreak in the seuth.
What might bo called a supporting influence
is the favor yitIl which tha more remote de
liveries are viewed from n speculative stand
point. While everything near is being fairly
sold , there is a good inquiry for long lutures ,
and this alone tends to support the market.
There was n sale of May oats to-day 'it "Dp ,
this transaction inaugurating a speculation in
this article for the now crop ,
There were nothing but baara " to-day in the
provision pit. In view of the "moderate live
hog receipts the market opened steady and
full up to Friday's latest quotations , but from
thence on the course was steadily downward ,
until a decline of 17c had been brought about
in pork for the August delivery. About
every body was a seller , while the buyers
were very scarce.
Corn holds up with considerable firmness ,
all thing * considered. To day's ranee waj
} c against a fluctuation of ic on Friday.
Trading , as may be imagined , was light.
August opened and closed at 42 c , stilling at
4"cin the course of the day.
Fat cattle are in fair demand and the turn in
prices was rather higher. The run was light
not only in Chicago , but at all other points ,
and the percent of fat cattle was rather below
the average. The highest price was § 5.75 for
a fair bunch of natives and from that down to
Sl.SOgG.lO forgraascrs nnd inferior natives ,
Comparing the quality and prices with Fu-
dav. the general market was , as stated above ,
a shade higher. There were only a few lots
of Texans in the market and they were of the
sort wanted by butchers and they sold as
high if not higher than on Friday.
There wore no canning Texans on sale
and none wore wanted. Native _ butchers'
stock , especially fat cows , sold at high prices.

NEW YOHK , July G , From a careful analy
sis of over 3,500 special crop reports from its
subscribers , practical farmers in every state
nnd territory in the Union , the Rural New
Yorker concludes that the winter wheat crop
will aggregate 210,000,000 bmhols , and the
spring wheat crop 155,000,000 bushels , making
an aggregate CTOD of 301,000,030 bushels , n
falling oft of 147,000,000 bushels from last
year's crop , Oats will be the largest crop
ever harvested , llye and barley will be fair
crops. The corn area is larger than ever before
and the outlook is good for an average yield
per acre. There will ba an average crop of
potatoes and a considerable increase in the
acreage of tobacco. The cotton prospects are
highly promising , despite the injury from in-
eects in Texas and other places. Of apples
there will be a fair crop for an off year.
Many trees are dying , especially in the west.
Peaches are a failure in northern latitudes ,
and there is but a poor outlook for pears.
There will bo fair crops in New Jersey , Dela
ware and Maryland.

was started either by tramps known to havi

ton Chemical fire engine wo unable to cope
with the flamw , aid was asked from this place
which was immediately sent. The Mndiion
steamer was of little aid , there being no watoi

CnEioiiTON , Neb. , July 5. The natal day
was very generally observed by the citizens of
this place , Business houses were closed and
the shops wore silent while the strootg.llawns ,
yards nnd private parks wcro radiant with
the mingling hues of highly colored emblems
and costumes duting the day and with the
firo-worka at night.
At 10 o'clock in the morning a cannon was
fired signaling the procession to move , The
long line which had fanned on one of the
principal streets advanced , headed by a dele
gation of citizens. Following the citizens
wore SOO Santcc and JL'onca Indians In war
paint and bright colored raiment. The In
dians had come to the city to participate in
the celebration. After marching for some
time the procession disbanded to hoar the ad
dress of the day which WAS delivered by the
Kev. A , P. Mend , and at the close of which
there was an intermission for dinner. In the
afternoon the people collected in a sort of
park called the bowery , where the Indians
gave a grand war danca. This exercise was one
of the features of the day being in
strict harmony with the rites of tha tribe.
All the implements of war were taken into
the dance ; the hideous-sounding drum was
beaten and witli gruff grunt ? , or clear and
wait-like barks , tbo warriors kept npico with
the discord. The dance was a''stag" affair ,
and had not the intoxicating influence of the
waltz which was conducted by tha grand
army boys at an adjacent plattorm , and in
which the pale-faced squaws participated.
At a late hour at night the exercises closed ,
the white people returned to their residences
and the red men mounting their horses de
parted fur their homes in the country.

WILLEMANTIO , Conn. , July G. Dr. Carver's
Wild West show , which is really the property
of McCaffrey Brothers. of Texas , was
attached for libel by the agents of Baffalo
Bill , after the exhibition here Saturday. Suit
was also brought against the body of Dr ,
Carver , and has been unable to secure
bonds , and is held hero by officers.
The show was billed for Woonsocket to day.
The trouble is a personal ono between Cody
and Carver , who each recently issued what is
alleged to ba libellous circulars about the oth
er. Carver claims he was thn originator of
the Wild West show idea , but ho divided his
success with Cody until the latter'a personal
conduct became unbearable , and that since
they separated Cody has tried to ruin him , It
is considered a mistake that Carver took any
notice , of Cody's circulars , but Carver main
tains be acted in self defense , and baa told
only the truth about Cody , which he
holds is not libel. _ Carver's
troupe are in camp here and making the town
lively. The cowboys had two scrimmages

in which one cowboy fired at Charles Wilson ,
of this place , an ! pummelled Wilson and

CHICAGO , July C , 8.45 n. m. Great crowds
hung about the barns of the car company on
Western avenue all morning , but the largo
force of policD was sufficient to suppress qij ,
signs of incipient disorder. Under the pro
tection of the officers five c rs were placed
upon the Randolph street line and in ado the
journey down town without encountering nny
serious opposition and have now started on
the return trip , carrying , however , only
policemen ,
11 n. m. The cars are now running on Lake
and Randolph streets. Two trips down have
boon made. The second trip up Is now being
made Everything was quiet on the second
trip down. Cars wcro run n block and a half
apart and police piotection furnished. Pas
sengers crowded the cars and fares were
taken , The strikers oonpregated in groups of
three and four along the route and looked
threateningly at the conductors and
drivers. Tenons along the route stared nt
the carfl as if they wore a now invention
and horsns insomo caies wcro frightened at
them. Trouble is still fenrod and it is thought
as soon as tha cars are left unguarded by the
police the drivers and conductors may bo se-
\ ercly dealt with.
Noon The street car company has sent out
fear cars on Van Buren street which made
tha down trip unmolested. The company declare -
clare it will not start its Madison street line
until it can man all its cars , The men In
charge of the cars ara nearly all new men ,
none.of the strikers having as yet shown any
signs of entering the company's employ. io
crowds are reported at nny point , the police
believe the evidences of disorder are disap
poarintr ,
2:15 : p. m. The street railway cimpany ,
under the protection of the police is hourly
enlarging Its service , and up to this time
without any outwatd signs of violence. Four
to six policemen are to be found on each car ,
but the number of passengers being carried is
increasing , The company put a large number
of cars on the Madison street line at 1:20 :
o'clock this afternoon which are being operated
without molestation. The policoj do not
allow any great crowds to occumulate at any
points along the four routes now covered by
2:20 : p. m. A slight demonstration was
made near tbo corner of Jefferson and Ran
dolph streets shortly before 1 o'clock , but the
police wagon coming up dispersed the gather
ing. One of the new drivers was struck by a
flying stone about noon , but the perpetrator
was not seen or arrested. Beyond those oc
currence ? , nothing of a disturbing natureihaH
been reported , 8 < 8 w3 HCZ
Towards 4 o'clock the crowds in the streets
began to grow larger and bolder At Roby
and Van Buren streets over 300 men and
b ya bad congregated. They were in sym
pathy with the strikers , and at the approach
of a car began hooting at the ' 'scab" driver
and conductor , The police alighted to dis
perse the crowd when a portion of it , making
a detour , attacked , the cqnductor and driver ,
beating them severely , and overturned the
car into a ditch. The horses were cut loose
and turned adrift. A second attack was soon
mode upon a Madison street car and the same
scenes were repeated. Half an hour later two
cars on Lake street were thrown fromthe
track by ahowling mob , but nobody was hurt ,
rhe cars are all ordered back to the barns ,
and no further attempt will be inado to run
them before morning.
The secretary of the car drivers' and con
ductors' association told a reporter to-night
that the strikers bad purposely kept away
from the barns and streets to-day. Their ob
ject was to avoid a disturbance and to ascer
tain how many men the company could pro
cure to run Its cars. The events of the day
bad shown that the force was only sufficient
to man twenty cars. The secretary added
that to-morrow there might bo trouble. The
prosUent of the association to night addressed
a letter to President Jono ? , of tha West Divi
sion company , notifying him of the willingness
of the strikers to arbitrate ; of their choice for
an arbitrator , and requesting early informa
tion as to the company's proposed action con
cerning the matter ,
The city council , after devoting consider
able time to a discussion of the strike to-night ,
appointed a committee of five of its members
to hold an early conference with the mayor ,
the street car company , and the strikers , with
the object in view of bringing about peace
ful settlement of the existing difference.
