Special to TUB Hi.n. | The manifesto
hlch the Comto do Purls has addressed te
the French nation Is purely and simply an
affirmation of the policy pursued by tha mon
archists. The solo object which the writer
Bcems to hnvo had In view wus to cxbort bis
nuppartcrs to remain faithful to the electoral
coalition over which tlio Comto do Louro
reigns supreme. Ho appeals firs I to the
monarchists , Catholic' und ProtUtnnt ,
Impel lallstB , und to the moder
ate-minded mon who , having sought
In vain to found an honest republic ,
car.not continue eternally "to defend against
tholr experience a reform of government
that has been condemned by results. "
The Comto do Purls calls upon the men
representing these different opinions to band
closely nnd ( Irmly together under the ban
ner of revision , nnd If they should comooutof
the bnttlo with the spoils of victory , the part
which Ihoir majority In the chutnber would
have to piny Is , first :
"Tbo most pressing ovIUvlll have to bo
remedied , nnd then the great question of a
revision o : the constitution will bo taken In
band. "
It is not , however , tbo coming chamber
which will give Franco her now constitu
tion. Accordlnc tp Iho Comto do Paris'
pluu , the nation , cither by the election of u
constitutional convention , or by means of
thu pleblscitum , or by the blending of these
two methods , will bo culled upon to form u
government. The Comto do Paris supposes
that when this moment arrives iho French
people will bo touched to the Jicart by thu
superior merits of monarchy , us represented
by his family , which has reigned the longest
in Franco , and thai pioferenco.will bo given
to this traditional monarchy rejuvenated by
the suffrages of thu people. Ho believes ,
moreover , that the superiors of
every other monarchy will bow
mcoltly to the verdict or ll.o nation , nnd
particularly the Imperialists.
The Comto do Purls docs not take into
consideration in his manifesto the possibility
that the French nation should , as it bus
done before , ucclnim a sovereign dictator
ruler who is not born of n. dynasty which
bus sut on the throne of Frunco for cen
turies , und the comto docs not say whether
such a ruler would meet with , from the rep
resentatives of the old dynnsty nud
its supporters , the submission , obe-
dicnco and loyalty which ho ex
pects from the Imperialists. He
does not say whether the princes of the
house of Franco would bo prepared. In thu
event of the vordlct of the nation being con
trary to their hopes , to become faithful and
devoted subjects of Pritico Jerome Nnoolopn ,
Prince Victor , or nny other elected chief of
stato. It seems , howcverthat this goes \vith-
outsaylug. In such cases , turn-about Is fair
play.Uoulnngor's nanio docs not appear in the
manifesto , which is not suiprising. Ho is
I not , however , overlooked. Ono part of the
| I document is evidently u soplothoBoulunKist
i ' party , culling upon the conservatives ,
, j os it does , not to break the pact uonclti Jed
\with \ Uoulungcr in view of the elections.
} "Whuro you have candidates , " the CinUo de
( Paris tolls the mountchlsts , "support'them
itnergotically ; elsewhere bo guided by the
/necessities / of combat and do not consider us
/enemies those who uro ilghiingtho sumo foes
/ ns you. " 1 hia can only bo rend us un ap
proval of the resolve of the LOinmlltco of
\ txvclvo not to contest the elections of the
1 ' general , of La Guerre. LnUsant nnd others
of tbo same party. This is n consecration of
the eleclorul coalition between tbo monarch
ists. Imperialists und Uoulunglsta.
Writing m thoFignro , Mugnurd has pointed
out that that part of the miinifeUo in which
the Houlungists nro alluded to Is rather
cold. There Is certainly no nbrasn which can
bo construed as expressing enthusiasm for
Boulungor or his parly. Nevertheless , the
nlllnnco , or at least common action , is main
tained for all practical purposes , and it is not
surprising to find thnt Cussagiiuc , Who is
ono of Iho warmest upholders of iho coalition ,
fully approves of the manifesto. "It Is , " ho
writes , "an absolute confirmation of the
policy which the Autorlto has preached all
along. "

, Cable Special to TUB UBK. ] Odds of
0 to 4 are offered that Scarlo will defeat
O'Connor m the sculling mutch for the
championship of the world on next Monday.
The Australian contingent Is loaded down
with smiles nt the idea ot tholr favorite's defeat -
, feat , but they might bo moro confident or
\ thu odds would not bo so small. 'Iho Aus
tralians have moro money. It U said there
la 159,000 behind Soarlo , but the
flcuro Is entirely too lurge. At
any rate , not half the amount will betaken
taken ut the present odd a for the Ameri
can and the Canadians , who are backing
O'Connor , have nothing like so much money.
Englishmen , ns u rule , will back Soarlo.

they can sot > at n glnnco , Is u man of im
mense strength , und who , however slouchy
ho may look on land , IH perfectly at homo in
a boat.
O'Connor is by no means
v I Ih out English backing , but his
continuant naturally usks for odds und will
notbOBUiUtlo.l with loss thnn 3 to 1 , whl-h
will probably bo the quotation on or before
the day of the nice. O'Connor has u host of
udmlrers. Ho is u splendidly built fellow
nnd much more graceful than hU rival , even
in a boat. Ho IH the moro artistic of the two.
Some say his style Is too pretty for business ,
out these who hnvo scon him ut work in
earnest know that ho puts erery pound of
his Btrougth to thu boatudvuntago.
Some of iho dally reports of the work of
both men afford the latter considerable
amusement. Of course Iho report1 uro
Inaccurate , Those who road and
depend up MI them must think bath men nro
now of exceedingly alow stroke , an neither
is glvon credit , oven in spurts , for doing
moro than thirty to the minute. I watched
both men ut work to-day. O'Conner wus
coached by Lee , who Is suid to bo rowing as
fust ns lie over did In his life. Lee started
with uload of fifty yards , O'Connor wont
to woikuttwcnly-tlvo strokes to the wlnuto ,
gradually increased tbo stroke , nnd m u third
of a mlle wus utmost level with Lee. Neither
O'Conner or Scarlo spurts for moro than u
few hundred yards , us they are always under
watch , generally by thousands of eyes. In
spurting thU afternoon O'Conner put In nlno
Btrokeft in thirteen seconds , thirteen In sev
enteen unit a half and twenty-two In
thirty seconds. Mattorsou sot the pace for
Scarle. Muttorsou is conceded to bo the
fUKtcut mat > ou the Tlmtnon for u quarter of
.ft wile , but beyond that dlatauco stund * no
chance with Scnrlo. In the spurting to-day
Scarlo was timed for nine strokes In twelve
seconds , thirteen In sixteen and twenty-
thrco In thirty. It will bo seen that O'Con
nor's fastest Btroko Is about forty-six , whllo
Scnrlo got as high as forty-debt. Thcso
spurts were only for a short distance , but In
the coming ruco these who witness it may
expect Scurlo to run up to forty-six nnd O'Coo
nor to forty-four at moro thnn ono point In
the struggle in going nt a high pressure
rate. 13 o th men during their training have
done beautifully clonn work. .
The final deposit will bo mndc nt the Star
nnd Garter Thursday nleht. The rofcrco
will bo chosen at the same timo. O'Conner
said to-dav that ho did not know who tha
rcfcrco would bo , but expected ho difficulty
over the selection. O'Connor never looked
stronger In his Ufa and is quietly confident ,
The snmo may bo said of Sonrlo. It promises

to Tun Ur.B.J The United Stutos senate
committee to make Investigation Into the
Vorklngs of tlio interstate comruorco law as
applied to the carrying of Hvo stock and
dressed meats , began Its worlc hero to-day.
Senator Vest , of Mislsslppl , Senator Coke ,
of Texas , and Senator Farwoll , of Illinois ,
were present.
Considerable merriment was occasioned by
the ainbtirassrnent caused by the failure of
the members of the commlttuo to.recognize
GonerafMnnneer Jeffery when ho took the
chair this morning.
After waiting some time , "Is there anyone
ono else I" suggested Senator Vest.
"I have a subpaana , " said the general
manager of the Illinois Central.
"State your name nud place of business. "
"Edward T. Jeftory , of Chicago , Illinois , "
ho replied with BO mo irony.
"What is your business ! "
"I am in the railway profession , " with
emphasis on the 'profcsslon. "
"In what capacity I"
' General muuagcr of the Illinois Central. "
Senator Vest straightened himself and bo-
gnn to show great interest in the witness.
He began u search among his ptpors as if ho
hud unexpectedly got at the witness ho Just
Jeftery said the Illinois Central was not
interested in the stock yards and had no
agreement with that company as to trans
portation rates for stock. His road in com
mon with others , delivered stock to that cor
poration. In reply to u question us to the
comparative rates on live cattle and dressed
beef , Jeffrey replied Unit thu road bad rates
on BO many articles that ho wus unable to
answer. Ho said it was true that ho had
been examined by the intor-stato commerce
commission and that ho had then testified
that ho wus unable to say why the rate on
dressed beef from Sioux City , In. , to Chicago
was fiighor than that on live stock , except
that it had been so for a long time. This ,
however , applied ho suid only to Sioux City.
There were no through rates from other
points , such us Omaha or St. Louis , so It was
dilllcult to sav whether or not there was u
difference from ether points. Witness had
further testified on tha ) occasion that 1 cent
a ton per inilo for live stock and 40 cents per
100 pounds for dressed products would bo
about a fair ratp and would yield about
equal profit. Jeffery added that he had sub
sequently prepared some llgures on the sub
ject and hud sent them to Commissioner
Morrison In a letter. As far as ho knew that
letter had never been published and bo
would bo glad to submit a copy of it to the
At the conclusion of his testimony Mr.
JofTery was asked about the Central Truffle
ussoci.Uion. "It is a voluntary association , "
ho said , "to make rates on competitive trafllc.
There is such nmct work of lines within the
limits of this country that all truffle is com
petitive. For this reason , and that there
shall bo a fair und equitable basis of rates ,
the association Is maintained. The general
conduct of the business is in the hands of a
chairman with no executive powor. Except
in small localities the entire United States is
now governed by these associations. With
out that it is impossible to inako a fair
schedule. "
"It Is , then , an association to prevent com
petition J"
"In ono sense it is , but there is no rcdross
if u loud does not Hvo up to the contract. "
"Is tliero no penalty ! "
"Thoro Is none and that Is the trouble. I
hnvo an oulnion that much of the present
difficulty could bo remedied if two things
were done. If every agreement was sub
mitted to and ratified by thu inter-stato com
iiierco commission it could bo scon that they
were maintained. It is hard to do anything
because wo cannot punisti any agreement
breaker In any way. It would work to the
advantage of all the commercial intorcsts of
the country. "
Wilson T. Keenan , who has been selling
cattle nt the stock ynrds for twenty-four
years , and who was the first witness after
the noonday adjournment , xald the dressed
beef industry was inaugurated in 1879.
"Is it u profitable business ] " ho was
"I suppose it is , judging by the number
who have grown wealthy by it. "
Ho named the principal buyers for the
business to bo Armour , Swift , Morris and
Hammond ,
"Do you think they control the markotl"
"I think they do noU"
The receipts used by them ho put last week
at 40.0UO out of 70.00U head of cattle received.
The butchers , too , were supplied out of the
40,000. Ilis figures on the cost of feeding
cattle at the yards agreed with a provlous
"What , " asked Senator Vest , "in your
opinion , controls the prlco In the yards } "
"Tho supply und demandaltogotlior. There
is nothing else can do it. "
"Why Is it that the supply of cattle has
not kept p.ico with the papulntloiii"
" 1 have never boon ablu to learn. Wo nro
shippimr more live cattle now than over bo-
foro. "
"Is it true the prlco remains the same to
the consumer ! "
"It is. "
"Why then does not the law of supply nnd
demand , that varies the prlco to the shipper ,
vury the cost to the consumer ! "
Thn witness did not answer the question
directly , but uegan u discussion of the cost
of porter house Bleaks und funcy cuts.
Finally ho said the consumer always paid
the same , because , while the demand for
high priced cutsot beef wus greater , the do-
in ami for the lower grades was less , BO the
uvcrago Is maintained. Ho was asked why
the utilization of all nnrts of thu beef did not
incrcasu the prlco. Ho replied that there
were moro cattlo. The point was { disputed
by Senator Vcat , who Insisted that the sup
ply was less.
Mr. Keenan was nsltod about competition
in bidding at the .yards. Hu thought it was
fulr und uctivo.
"Will the packers bid against each othor1 !
"Oh , yes , if the oattlo suits tlium. Hu
added , "Sometimes a packer does not want
u shipment , fn that case no asks others to
buy for him und then divide It. Thou there
is but ono bid mudo und they divide the
cultlo. "
"It is often sol"
Judco W11 cox und Mr. Larkln , dairymen
of Klgin , tostilleJ that the development of
thu dressed beef business hud revolutionized
thu cattle trade In Elcln. Local butchers no
longer bought cattle on thu hoof , but bought
beef already Uresieil from Chicago. 'Hie
prlco of cattle had fallen heavily , out there
had beun no drou in thu prlco of moat. Mr.
Larkln read llgurus showine an alleged do-
clliie In the prlco of live cattle slnco thn year
IbiO from M.7.r > per head to f 18.01. Then ho
took a ship at the railroads. Ho complained
thut tta dealers throughout the country
were rjfublnu' to buy Hvo stock , prufurr'ng
to order dressed beef from Chicago. Tic
idea brajght out wus that the freight turliT
on live stock wus higher than that on dressed
beef , thus the smaller dealers conslJori'.d it
to their advantUK'otobuy in Chicagoand th s ,
uccordiug to Mr. Uarliin'u notion , lo.'t Chi-

Ciiiovao , Sept. -fSDiolal Tologrutn to
Tun 13KB.J Chnlrroun Fuithorn , of the
Western Freight association , bus returned
from his Now York cmiforonoo with the
jtrunk lines , minting to pro-rating pn north
western through business * and , will rnport
the result to the meeting- hla association
to-morrow. Chairman FmUiorn , of course ,
will not toll what success ho bail , provlous
to the inoctlntr , but tha general opinion
among railroad men Is the same as It wus
when ho started , thnt'lho trunk lines would
tnko the sumo action ns tha Control Truffle
roads und refuse nil pro-rating arrangement.
Chairman Fnithorn slopped in Buffalo on
his return , and It is the current belief thut
no succeeded in getting nt least a proposition
from the Lnko lines. In view of the fact
that Iho Uurllngtbtt & Northern positively
refuses to give up Its through business , nil
western roads unite Iu hoping some arranpo-
mont can bo tnado , It It cannot , the whclo
northwestern complication must again bo
reopened , fought out and settled. Western
roads especially dread n rate war or any re
duction in rates at present , ns they are nil
doing u lund-onlco business , tha main dlfll-
culty on all lines being u shortage of cars.
The only rates now iu effect , between Chicago
cage nnd St. Paul is \\\o \ \ 00-ccnt local rate
nud the low commodity tariff Issued to pro
tect Chicago merchants from eastern compe
tition vlu the Canadian Pacific nnd "ooo"

dcclurcd positively that .thero must bo no

quently , if no pro-rating arrangement
can bo mndo wltti eastern lines

must make u corresponding reduction In local
With Canadian Pnpiflo nnd "Soo" rates as
they are at present , the Chicago-St. Paul
proportion of tbo through rate must be reduced -
duced to almost 15 cants , Thin will necessi
tate u reduction in local rates from thu CO
cent local rnto to not moro than a 20 cent
basis. The Burlington & . Northern has only
mi InsigniQacnt locul business , and the re
duction to It would not 'bo ' disastrous. All
other St. Paul Hues , howover. oxeapt the
Chicago , St. Paul & .Kansas . City , depend
almost entirely on tholr local business , and
