LONDON , Sept. IS. The fact that no less
than ten batteries of horse nnd field artillery
l ) vo been ordered to omlmrk for India dur-
ItiK the months of September and October Is
much commented upon In military circles.
Under ordinary circumstances the Indian
batteries would bo relieved this month , but
these have been ordered to remain , nnd there
will bo shortly on the frontier fourteen bat
teries , a full complement for an army corps.
! As the Ilrltish force now assembled on the
frontier Is of ample strength to wipe out all
( visible resistance , the only communion that
con bo reached In relation to the dispatch ot

possessed of Information ot a fccrlous char-

confidence In the ameer's fidelity and It Is
intimated that the government has learned
that while professing friendliness with Great
Britain he Is preparing for war.
Leading men are discussing the secret correspondence

THE IRISH SITUATION.
The extent of the distress threatening Ire
land seems to depend largely on which
party's eyes the case Is viewed with.
The council of the National federation has
decided that the country Is on the brink era
a widespread calamity and calls upon
Messrs. Dillon and Harrington to convoke u
meeting of the Irish members of Parliament
for the purpose of requisitioning Mr. Dai-
four , the government leader In the Commons ,
to call an autumn besslon of Parliament to
Covlso relief measures and to puss a bill re
ducing rents in Ireland In proportion to the
Ions Inclined by thu tenants owing to the
wholesale destruction of their crops. On
the other hand , the Dublin Kxpress says the
cry of famine is only a continuation of the
party war cry which IK raised every year
by the unionists In olllce. and adds : "Judg
ing from the past we'may hope that much of
the crops doomed to destination by the
prophets of evil will bo rescued and that
the general yield will bo larger than ex

The Independent regards the suggestion
that the duchess of York will shortly appeal
for funds In behalf of the Irish who arc
threatened with famine as being an Insult
nnd says : "If the country was ten times as

any charitable appeal to the English. " The

IXNION , Sept. 18. ( New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram. ) William
Waldorf Astor , who has just returned from
a visit In northern Europe , writes very
cnthuMa'tlcally of the Swedish women. Ot
all the sights In Stockholm , he says , "tlio
one best worth n long journey to sec was
ho frokcns , or demoiselles , Hcsldc. the
particular charms of the feature and expres
sion lfco frokcns share the common charac
teristics of the tall , trim figures , frank
eyes nnd self-possessed chins. The vtry
scrxants and barmaliHi look refined and
tidy ; even the women wheeling a barrow
have a neat Jacket and n well garnished
hat. " Mr. Astor relates with gusto .1 joke
ho played on one of his party : "Having
heard something of Swedish ways , I lured
my unsuspicious companions Into a public
bath. One of them has not yet recovered
from the pink horror which seized him en
being surprised , helpless In the water by
a tall virago who pioceedcd to soap and
rinse him as In the days ot his youth. " Mr.
Astor had an exciting experience In n bar
ber shop. "I went to a barber to have
ray hair trimmed and soon discovered the
Inconvenience of unfamlllirlty with.tho lan
guage. While my arms were swathed In a
sheet and I had nothing to protect mo but
my tongue , the barber politely and delib
erately clipped off the treasured apex ot my
beard In deference to some fugitive local
fashion , and In spite of all my vigorous but
unintelligible remonstrances. One ot my
friends was meanwhile being chased around
the shop by n shaving operator who wanted
to go over him a second time. "

LONDON , Sept. 18. ( Now York World
Cablegram Special Telegram. ) The governor
of the Bank of England has brought upon
himself a perfect hurrlcuno of denunciation
for his shadowy concession to the blmot-
Hllists , although It U taken for granted
that the conditions laid down cannot possibly
bo fulflled. Still the mere fact of the bank
displaying even the most platonlo affection
for bimetallism has strikingly shown how
overpowering- ! adverse tlio vast bulk of
commercial banking and press opinion in
England Is to any Interference , however
remote or alight , with the gold standard.
The Statist says : "The action of the bank
is at once feeble and unwise , though the
conditions attached to holding one-fifth ot
the bullion reserve In the bank in silver are
extremely unlikely to bo attained and need
not cause any alarm. Tlio bank should have
said emphatically and distinctly that It was
not disposed to tamper with the more than
fifty years' established usages of holding
gold against Us note Issue. There may be
a deslro not to offend susceptibilities by
plainly tolling the United States and Franco
tint England Is not going to fall into any
schemes ; but even on the part of our own
government a llrm policy would have been
decidedly better than pretending seriously
to ronsldcr the subject. But the publication
of the letter by the governor to the chan
cellor ot the exchequer has evoked so much
proteat and ridicule that we are not likely
again to hear of the proposal. "

The design of the Agricultural building shows a richness of ornament almost to redundancy , which not only gives It the character of an exposition building , but
suggests the wealth and abundance derived from agriculture. JUch and brilliant color Is an Important element In the design. This color Is applied to the loggias
and on the plain wall surfaces , leavl c the nrches. columns nnd' main architectural parts to stand out In simple , strong masses , having no color themselves , but relieved
against the colored background. This color treatment produces a beautiful nnd brilliant cffect , , whether seen under brilliant sunlight with the strong shadows falling
across It , or In half-lights late In the afternoon , reflected In tlio lagoon or half concealed bv the projections of the buildings , as It Is seen In the perspective. While
the building Is of Rennalssance or classic type , the decorations and ornaments will bo cntlrolv modeled from agricultural products festoons of corn and other cereals ,
nnd even the common market garden products nro given proper place In this decoration. The great wml-clrcular niche forming the main entrance will bo richly
decorated In this way In color , and on cither side of It there will bo figures representing the "Digger" and the "Sower , " taken from Millet's famous paintings , sup-
Dortcd on cither side by lesser figures and the arms of the state and nation. At each side of the great central arch will bn recessed niches with rich color decoration ,
and crowning this central composition will bo three sculptured groups , these o = either side representing the zodiac and tha seasons while the centra ! figure , crowning
the whole composition , will represent "Prosperity , " supported by "Labor" and "Integrity. " At the corner pavilions there will bo figures representing the seasons and
the favorable winds , and Inscriptions relating to the subject of agriculture. Names of these who have been patrons of agriculture or who have made notable Inven
tions In this field of labor will be Inscribed noon the panels In the frieze. The outside dimensions of this building are 148x400. It has a total floor space ot 84,260

LONDON , Sept. 18. The prince and prin
cess of Wales have announced their Inten
tion of paying several visits to London In
order to encourage the winter season , the
tradesmen of the metropolis having suc
ceeded In conveying respectful hints to his
royal highness that otherwise the season was
certain of failure , which would be followed
by a consequent depression In trade , owing
to the social reaction which set In after the
celebration of the queen's diamond Jubilee.
In spite of official frowns and attempts to
suppress the chatter It has leaked out that
the detachment of Footguards quartered at
the Tower of London swear the sentries on
night duty have seen the ghost of Anne
Doleyn , the unfortunate wife of the much-
married king , Henry VIII , whom he caused
to bo beheaded on May 19 , 153B. The ghost
of Queen Anne Boleyn is only supposed to
appear on the eve of the death of a mem

MARRIAGE AN UNHAPPY ONE.
The relations between the duke and duch
ess of Aosta , the former being the oldest
nephew of the king of Italy and the latter
being Princess Helena of Orange , daughter
of the late count of Paris , are once more
reported to be strained , and H Is further
stated that their separation Is only a ques
tion of n short time. Although they were
only married about two years ago , In June ,
1&95 , In Juno , 1S9C , the Figaro announced
that the marriage had turned out to ho very
unhappy for both parties , and that a Judicial
separation was only prevented by the Inter
vention ot the duke of Aumalo. The duchess ,
the Figaro added , refused to bo reconciled
to her husband and kept eeparato apart
ments. In December of the same year
there was hold n meeting of the members of
the houses of Savoy nnd Orleans , at the end
of which It was announced -that the duke
and duchcts of Aosta had been Induced to
abandon their Intention ot an Immediate
separation. But , when the duchess was
here last week , she declared she would never
live In Italy again. Her mother , the count
ess of Paris , has done all she can to soothe
the ruined feelings of the duchess , but all
her efforts to make her change her mind
seem to have been unavailing , and It Is gen
erally admitted that her separation from the
duke Is again looked upon as being almost
A curious suggestion has been made , with
the object of emphasizing the union of the
British empire , and It Is meeting with con
siderable favor. The Idea Is that , In. place
of such distinctive names , Canada , Australia ,
etc. , the designation of the British empire
should be applied to all tbo countries under
British rule. Under this plan Great Britain
proper would be known as the BrltUh em

The report of the asylums committee of the

an alarming Increase In lunacy during tbo

the population of London Is 15.49 of Eng

on the subject , says : "There Is no doubt
that as regards the nature ot lunacy wo are

to Increase It. This Is largely duo to the
want of asylum accommodations , the
technically cured being discharged before
they arc really cured , and thus adding
further chances for transmitting lunacy. "

Ordei'M Hnve lleen lilven lo Inquire
Into ( ho Affair.
CITY OP MEXICO , Sept. IS. Orders hnvc
been given to Investigate the lynching of
Arroyo. President Diaz has decided that the
Inquiry shall bo most rigorous and that the
guilty parties bo severely punished , as ho
feels that the act was n reproach to the na
tion , which has taken prldo In the fact that
lynch law has been unknown hero. The
twenty-odd men arrested nro ( Hill In custody
and formal papers ore being drawn up In
their cases. The Imparclal ( newspaper ) says
tonight that If the public will have patience
It wjll bo entirely satisfied with the result
of the Investigation. The same paper la
ments the lynching for various rcationa and
rcgrelH that Iho net of tlio mob prevents It
being ascertained whether Arroyo had ac
complices or was In any way Instigated to the
deed , or whether any political motive under
lay his crlmo. The paper adds that In the
United States , which Is the cradle of lynch
ing , no such act on the part of a mob ever
look place In Washington or In nny largo
renter of population. Lynchlngs In the
United States commonly occur In sparsely
eettled regions , country towns or at most
county neats , hut never where the higher
authorities live and are supported by the
pqllco and military.
The Mexican Herald says Arroyo was more
than half mad. a victim of morbid Imagina
tion , pos. esbcd by a fatal deslro for notoriety
and adds : "It U generally felt that speedy
trial , followed by execution of whate\or
penalty abould luivo been Imposed , would
have better maintained the dignity of the
country and saved us from the reproach of
the foreign press. Hero In Mexico news
papers have vehemently rebuked lynching as
practiced In the United States and all at
once In the capital city we uero startled
by a manifestation of popular vengeance
without a parallel hero. Tht > motlvo' wan
unqut'ntlonably powerful , but the act was an
invasion of the domain of justice and an
attack nn public order. "

UKRU.V , Sept. 18. Tlio ttrst batch ot re

In the meantime , the agitation of the cn-
tlro agrarian and conservative press In favor

In more vigorous than over. The Dcutschcr
Zoltung , thu leading organ of the agrarians ,
In an article Inspired by high government
olllclnlfi , says : "In spite of the deslro to
retaliate against the United States , the
hands of the government arc unfortunately
tied to a largo extent , as experience has
clearly demonstrated that flormany cannot. do

cotton and petroleum , find to" a smaller de

with which Gorman sugar Is being treated
by the United StatcH the German govern
ment will henceforth treat all American
meats and other pieservcs with similar
stringency. Laws will be passed making
meat inspection much moic rigid and these
laws will be extended to every kind of food
WAR ON AMERICAN M13AT.
The correspondent hero of the Associated
press has secured full corroboratlon of the
above views. In ofllclal. circles It is not
concealed thai the aim is to frame laws to
exclude in the future all American meats
and preserves on the plea that the sanitary
Inspection hi America Is not reliable ) and
not stringent enough. Uven this , however ,
falls to satisfy the agrarians , who have re
newed their demand that American cereals bo
excluded from Germany. 'As ' a striking com
mentary on the plans to exclude American
meat , the fact may bo noted that pork In
Germany during tlio InU fortnight ba
reached a price ui'.tjualcd In many years ,
that of 2j ! to 40 cents per pound at retail
and 18 cents per pound at wholesale. Tills
