BKIII.IN , July 10. The tension of feeling
toward Franco has relaxed since the French
fete day ha * passed without the occurenco of
nny null-German demonstration. The ac
counts In the German papers of Incidents In
PnrU on Thursday represent that the repres
sion of 0 popular outburst was solely accom
plished by the presencoof such mascs of troops
nil along the route traveled by President
Qrevy and his ministers on their way to the
review at Long Champ , as had never been
seen In Paris since the days of the Empire ,
and the papers seem to prove that the populace
lwero In readiness to make a demonstration ,
and that the extraordinary precautions taken
by the government , although successful In
paralyzing the Chauvinists , had given a
factitious asycct to the calmness which char
acterized the day. The German ambassy In
Paris was specially guarded. The leturn to
A the Gciman people of a calmer mood
* v toward France can bo assured , however , only
by the cessation of a systematic persecution
of German residents In French towns , yet
the tendency seems to be all the other \yav.
Minor German employes are being hunted
- out of their places at the rate of one hundred
? ' weekly , and It Is estimated that Germans
holding situations In France , who last year
numered 32,000 , have been decreased
one-half within the past six months.
Constant . streams ot appeals 'for
help against the outrages being
perpetrated upon tlio Germans are being
made to the German ambassay at Paris.
These appeals were made the subject of an
oral diplomatic representation to M. Florons ,
the foreign minister , by Count VonMunstor
on Wednesday last. The count has followed
his oral representation with a written re
monstrance to which the French
minister , M. Florens , will have to
make a written reply. Minister Florens
Is also asked by Count Yon Munster It his
government Is powerless to deal with the
orgnn of the Houlancerists , the Lo' Dcfonese
National , which declared that the German
functionaries in Franco wereall spies , that
the central nest of reptiles was the German
nmbassy , and that Count Yon Munster him
self was under the direction of aspy adminis
tration. Florens has made verbal promise to
interfere and use every power
of the government to prevent
assaults on the Germans in the future.
Since Count Yon Munstur made these re
monstrances the German consulate nt Bor
deaux and Uouen report street attacks upon
Germans In those cities , and the Bordeaux
consul complains that the windows of his
residence have been smashed. Gorman
papers of every party concur in the opinion
that'.tho situation Is intolorablu.and that It is
absolutely necessary for ttio French govern
ment to interpose resolutely to stop German
" baiting , "
IIUSSIA AND nniiuAxr.
The chief topic of Interest In Berlin after
the Fiench situation Is the unceasing depre
ciation of Itussian stocks. Tno fact Is now
recognized by both political and linanclal
i ( circles that the movement is not led by tbo
speculators , but has definite olllcial Inspira
tion and Is a part ot the government cam
paign of retaliation against the Uusslan and
nntl-German economy policy. During the
last fortnight the fall in Uusslan securities
of all Issues averaged dally o per cent. The
return to economic friendship will not bo as
sisted by thn latest Russian order dismissing
all Germans employed In commercial
and banking firms In the region of
St. Petersburg , Moscow and elsewhere in
Russia , nor by the government's refusal to
adopt the concurrent edict of the professor
of Dorpat university , that It would bo un-
wlsohenccfoith to conclusively usothollus-
elan language in classes , which refusal
caused the pioressors without exception to
resign. Thu enforcement of the govern
ment's edict will bo postponed for thirty-
one years , but after that the
last German school In the Baltic
provinces must bo extinguished. The
National /.eltung announces the successful
police raid on Berlin socialists yesterday
evening , when seven persons , forming the
central committee of a secret society of dem
ocrats , wore arrested. It Is reported that
grave evidence of treasonable conspiracy
has been obtained against them ,
Doulangor Causes a Sensation ,
PAWS , July 1C. Boulangcr has written a
letter to Deputy Saur thanking him for his
expressions of attachment and friendship ,
which , ho says , are becoming rare. Coutlnu-
Ing , the letter says the writer will do his
duty despite the hatred and defection of
formerfrlends. It was sulllclent for him to
remain a friend with those who wish France
to bti respeeted and who place their country
above party Intrigues. He himself has but
one aim to proclaim to Fienchmen that
they ean and must raise their heads and as-
Biimutho only attitude becoming n gieat
people. Thn letter caused a sensation In thu
deputies. It Is repotted that the general will
bo called to account for It

The Wreck's Fatal Hesult * .
LINCOLN , Net ) . , July 10. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKI : | Dr. Max Kandall , tlio
man so tcrilbly burned In tlio B. & M. wreck ,
near this place yesterday , died at 4p.m. at
the Trcmont home after thirty-six hours ot
Intense suffering. By tlio dead man's side
lays his son , burned and swollen beyond
recognition , unconscious and undoubtedly
hlowly dying also. At 10 o'clock to-nljht
thu boy is yet all vo , but the physicians hold
forth scarcely no hope. The relatives , who
weio summoned by telegraph , surrounded
the bedside of the dead and the dying , and
the scene was heartrending. The BKE
called at the coroner's office and found the
olllcial undecided as yet as to holding an In
quest , but It Is probable that one will be
held. I'ubllc opinion demands It , and on
every hand the sentiment Is that the fear-
tul accident should bo probed to the bottom.
Kltlicr the engineer ot the train Is guilty of
manslaughter through criminal carelessness
or tlio r.iilroad company Is guilty of working
Its men beyond human endurance. In the
afternoon the company had an Investigation
of Its own , and It Is understood that En
gineer Bowser , of the regular train. Is given
lie blame , but an investigation of that kind
.n vestlKates nothing , and the public know It ,
and the public further demand that the
burled secrets of the corporation be uncov
ered. It Is the almost universal opinion that
Engineer Bowser was asleep at Ills post , for
lie saw neither the signal at
the station of Uavelock and saw not tlio
train ho ran into , altnoiuh the track was as
straight as an arrow lor miles. The conductor
of the train saw the signal and with the
brakeman set lifteen brakes on the tear of
the train before the crash came , but received
no lielp from the engineer. The prevailing
opinion is also that the train men In many
Instances are worked beyond human endur
ance , and the public seem to believe this a
case of that character. The people In dis
cussing the matter believe and wpeak out that
a good intelligent jury should bo summoned
by the coroner and put the responsibility
where It belongs without the railroad com
pany being judge and jury and custodian of
the fpcts themselves. The good of the pub
lic and of every lallroad niau Is realized to bo
at stake In this accident , and If it is not
fixed to the bottom there will be a storm of
Indignant protests that will not down at the
pleasure of the railroad management. The
people of Lincoln want the truth known ,
and If the coroner should fall to hold an In-
qucstitmaybo expected that Judge Mason ,
as one of the railroad commission , will take
the matter in charge. Nothing for some
time in the capital city has created so much
discussion as the tragic deatli of Dr. Randall
and the almost equally certain deatli of his
son by cremation In a wreck for which En
gineer Bowser or the railroad company is

CHICAGO , July 10. [ Special Telecram to
ho BEI : . | The terribly hot weather eon-
Inues without any signs of relief. "Wo are
laving unusually hot weather , " said the
signal service man to a reporter. "We have
md it straight along now for a month , and
hat Is very unusual In Chicago. In fact our
records do not show any such condition of
ilTalrs to have ever existed here before. Wo
lave had as hot weather botorc , but never for
so long a time at onco. Wo have hot
veather every summer lu Chicago , but then
t generally lasts for only two or three days
at a time. The changes hero are usually fre
quent , and when a hot spell strikes us It js
usually over before wo have pot to realize
hat It Is here. This spell Is different In
hat respect. Indeed , It Is unprecedented ,
t Is the hottest time Chicago has ever had
for so long a term , and what Is more , there
are no Indications of any let up. It was hot-
er to-day than yesterday , and to-morrow
vill probably bo as hot as to-day. Wo may
tossibly get a shower by to-morrow
light that may cool It off a
Ittlc , but 1 would not like
o guarantee oven that. We had something
Ike this during the summers of 1873 and
1874 , and again In 1S31 , but the spells of hot
weather then were not so long-continued as
his ono has been. A cool spell this summer
ms been the exception , while heretofore the
lot spells have been the exception. That Is
the only difference between this year and the
irevluus ones. The hottest day this year
vas Juno 10 , when the thermometer wont up
o ! K5 , but It went beyond that to-day , and
what to-moirow may do I do not know. "
There were half a doren fetal cases of sun
stroke here this morning.
In Iowa and the Interior of Illinois and
Wisconsin the heat Is even more Intense
than here , and In many places all work has
stopped. In Illinois and Wisconsin the out
look for the crops on account of the blazing
sun and drought Is very poor. Vandalia.
111. , reports that the drought In that section
s tlio worst for years. Pastures are literally
burning up , and In many instances stock Is
sulk-ring for water. Unless there Is rain
soon the corn crop will bo a total failure.
Similar reports come from all over the state.
Oshkosh , WIs. , reports that the farmers In
Wlnnebago. Fon-Du-Lac , Green Lake and
other counties ot northern Wisconsin glvn
very gloomy accounts of the crop outlook.
For a week or ten days past chinch bugs have
been working nt a lively rate and great dam
age has been done. On light soil the bugs
are doing the worst. At Waukesha the har
vesting of winter grain has commenced with
the prospect of but a small yield , and In
many cases farmers are compelled to cut the
grain tor fodder. To add to the discourage-
nent the chinch buss are said to bo attacking
the corn crop where the small grains have
been previously destroyed.
CINCINNATI , July lO. The maximum heat
lo-dav was equal to that of yesterday , while
the ( \vcrago was higher. For the lirst time
during the hot term horses began to fall In
the streets. Sixteen persons were prostrated

checked the growth of corn in
