LONDON' , Nov. 2. The viceroy of India ,
the earl of Ulisln , cabled the homo govern-
inoi.i toUuy that lu thu I'unjatib ' thu distress

provinces the affected area is smaller than
expected , but Includes half the popul.Ulon.
The people are nuw eutlng aiitumi , millets.
The distress will begin about the middle
of December. Continuing , the viceroy says
that the revenue-paying rlco crops have
largely irlled , that about a third Of the
autumn taxation will bo suspended , eigh

west and central provinces , from S to 'J''j '
seers per rupee ; In Ilombay , from 10 to 12
ccors per rupic. The effect of the reduction
in the railway fare will be to dittusc the
distress , making It less lntci.se. A few
fcinnll lints have been reported , mostly owing
to the export of wheat having the effect of
raising prk-c * . The troops have been twice
called out , unco unnecessarily. Several
thousand tons at California wheat have
reached Calcutta , nnd 30,000 tons nre be
lieved to have been bought for India , but
fjL tlle 'um' ' ' prices are said to be rising. When
the uewa of this import reached Jubbutpur
thu price fell from SVj to 10 seers per rupee.

Sir Ulchard Temple , who hns had cx-

Lawrence , financial minister of India from
ISfiS to 1ST I , and who was reappolntcd to
superintend the relief operations lu the
famine-stricken districts of IJcngal , after
which ho served as governor of Ilombay ,
has bren Interviewed on tlle threatened
Indian famine. Sir Hlchnrd alluded to the
Import of California wheat as a unique
factor In the situation. Ho said : "It ap
pears wheat has been landed at Calcutta
end sold nl from 8 to 9 seers per rupee.
Such a , possibility was never dreamed of In
my time. If this bo true It will be suf-
llelent to old the Indian supply. Cer
tainly American wheat sold In India nt
thnt price will sutllce for the distressed dis
tricts. I do nnt see the need for the gov
ernment to Intervene. In this matter. If
the thing can be done , traders will do It
better unaided. I think this Is a vital mat
ter , and the government should Imme
diately verify It , If this Is possible. And It
so. they should not Intervene. If the
American supply failed , then I do not think
then Is sulllelei.t wheat In India to meet
the scarcity , and the government might
have to buy supplies wherever favorable
onnortunlty offered. "

organ , the Hamburger Nachrlchtcn , on the
latest phnse of the dispute covering the dls-
e.losurc of the Russian-Gorman treaty of
1884-90 , saying : "Tho question of the period
of tlmo required for secret diplomatic oc
currences to lese the clwacler of state
Hccrcts can only bo decided by the Btates-
men In oRlccby virtue of their responsi
bility nnd spc-clal knowledge of the. political
situation. Any deviation from this prin
ciple would expose the country's foreign
policy to surprises and perturbation and
thereby endanger Interests of state. If
Germany pave an unconditional promise to
keep eeerr-t the fact as well as the purpose
of the negotiations with Rinula before 1K30 ,
the obligation Is still binding upon all
cognizant of the matter and this considera
tion also precludes the possibility of discuss

Gaslight company , the Fulton Municipal
Gas company , the Nasxau Gaslight com

Metropolitan Gaslight company , the Citi
zens' Oas company , the Brooklyn Gaslight
company and the Drooklyn Gas company ,
forming the alleged trust , has decided to
begin suit as petitioned. The paper pre
sented upon the hearing set forth that upon
November M , 1KU5 , there had been organized
the eight companies above named , also the
FUtbush Gas company , the Kings County
Gas company , the Kquity Gaslight com
pany and the Mutual Gaslight company for
the ostensible purpose of supplying gas to
the city of Drooklyn and adjacent territory.
The first seven companies , through the
operation of their various mains furnished
the major portion of the gas supply of the
city of Hrooklvn. On or about November
, 1895 , the Ilrooklyn Union Gns company
turchased the property or franchises of
hesc companies , the sales In question being

of tIIP stock corporation law which permits
nmpanles of this character to convey their

I la held , contemplate the merging of

ransferred their property and franchises
ought not to be permitted to continue the
emhlance of corporate life , nnd especially
vhen they have suspended their ordinary

a matter of eoun > e. He at once went out to
Farley's place to see the champion and
graciously conceded the extension , but
added that ho did so because he did not
want to give his opponent the chance to say
after he was defeated that ho was out of

provu disastrous to stock on the range ,
but stockmen who have been In town the

are reported , the storm has proven of great
benefit , especially to cattle on portions of
the range where water has been scarce.
A heavy wind accompanied the storm and

the close of the fiscal year to bo $19,523-

For Inland mall the cost Is an Increase of

The hope of the railway mail ervlco Is

During the year -\'Ja \ accidents occurred

The most marked advance of the year

a reorganization and reclasslfleatlon of the
service , which , among other things , con
templates greater supervision by the rail
way mall over star routes and mall mes

salaries on a more equitable banls.
The net fcst of the foreign mall service
was J1.530.5SI. of which $ 'J40SS.r , was for

CHICAGO , Nov. 2. The public must bo
prepared for n later service on tomorrow's
election than usual. It will bo benin lu
mind that hitherto In presidential elections
New York has been a pivotal state and lh.it
the polls closed there ntI o'clock In thu
afternoon , the telegraph facilities were of
the highest order and the difference In tlmo
.between thnt city and the west enabled the
Associated press to practically determine tl.o
result of the election before midnight. ThUi
> ear Interest will center chiefly In states
west of the Alleghcnles , nnd particularly In
states west of the Mississippi. Much of
the ndvantagc of tlmo Is lost. As a rule
the polls will close at a later hour and thu
telegraphic facilities are comparatively lim
ited. In the state of Illinois there Is n
provision for amending the state constitu
tion nnd In Chicago another for the Issue of
local bonds , both of whlrh , under the law ,
must bo counted first , and this will neces
sarily Involve some delay. It Is needless to
say that every effort will be nude to prosecute -
cute the work as rapidly as possible , but
thu limitations above Indicated exist and It
Is as well that they should be understood.
The following table shows the hours ( local
time ) for opening and closing thu polls In
