but In'nnny circles the idea Is not popular
rnd will meet with opposition if any attempt
la made In Germany to realize the czar's
iiotlon. Germany can never be the first to
decrease its armaments , with both eastern
nnd western frontiers threatened. Her pres
ent burdens she bears lightly. Strong arma

the contrary , roadlness of defense Is the
fumtA'safeguard Against attack * 'Th'o'cra'r'e

Cablegram Special Telegram. ) A leading
ofllclal of the foreign offlci said today :
"Austria and Hungary are disposed to wel-

move deserves. At present tbo proposal Is
too vague to bo taken Into consideration.
When the Russian government makes de
tailed propositions for a conference , stat
ing the subjects to bo discussed , Austria
will como forward , helping Us utmost the
powers In the great work. "
Diplomatic circles hero are not disposed
to believe that Russian diplomacy approves
the czar's message , which seems to have
been sent Into the world In spite of Mura-
vlyff and his other counselors. Those who
hold .pessimistic views consider the czar's
move boyish and even womanish , nnd In

great Importance waa held nt Colonel Her-
rick's homo tonight , \vhero the presidential
party is ( Hopping. President McKlnloy ,
Secretary Day and Justice White were the
conferees and they were closeted together
after dinner until a late hour. It was ad1
mlttcd that the conversation had to do
With the appointment on the peace commls-
lon offered by the president to Justtco
Whlto , but at u Into hour it wna announced
that no definite conclusion had been reached ,
although hope was expressed that Justice
Whlto would see his way clear to accept
Justice White and Secretary of State Day
arrived at the house about C p. m. , un-
doublcdly to consult with the president over
the former's decision as to acting as one ot
the pencu commissioners.
At dinner were the president and Mrs.
McKinley , Co'oncl and Mrs. Hcrrlck , Justice
Whlto , Secretary Day , Assistant President's
Secretary Cortelyou , Mrs. M. A. Hanna and
Miss Hnnna. Mrs. McKinley was hulls-
posed by a slight cold and remained within
While President McKinley very much
desired to pay more than a brief
visit to his old homo In Canton ,
ho finds that the duties of his office
uro such that he will be obliged to cut his
visit there to a mcro call. The prcsldunt
will spend n couple of days In camp at Monc
tauk Point and Camp Wlkoff , so as to correctly -
rectly Inform himself as to the conditions of
affairs and of the truth of the reports that
liavo been circulated , from personal obser
vation and contact with the men. The
residential party will be at Colonel Myron

Big preparations have been made to re-
ceUo the president and Mrs. McKinley there
by their old friends and neighbors nnd the
people of Canton In general. It was the
Intention to make the occasion a civic jubi
lee. All this , however , will now be reduced
In n measure from the fact that President
McKinley and party will only be In Canton
for two or three houra and will then take a
train for New York.
On the eastern trip , which Is part of the
irogram outlined , the presidential party will
tiardly stop longer at Now York than will
bo necessary to catch n train for Camp
Wikoff and Montnuk Point. The president
will probably be In carnp nt the two places
mentioned on Friday and Saturday , leaving
Mrs. McKinley in New YorK City , whither
ho will return , to spend Sunday and then go

avail themselves of this opportunity of con
ferring with the president on national af
fairs requiring immediate attention. In ac
cordance with instructions sent to General
Wheeler , there will be no review or military
ceremonies on the occasion of the visit of

WARM TIME AWAITS MILES
Will lie Culled to Account for Alleged
Interview * Publliilicil lu
WASHINGTON , Aug. 30. When "General
Miles returns to Washington he will " bo
asked for an explanation of recen't Inter
views appearing , and the publication of cer
tain dispatches which the War department
has not made public. Whether the Investi
gation will take the course of a military
court of inquiry or of a private Interview
with the president , the secretary ot war and
General Miles , remains yet to be seen.
Until the arrival of General Miles the War
department will not discuss the matter.
Secretary Algcr says that the deportment
will not enter into any controversy with its
subordinates and he docs not propose to dis
cuss matters affecting General Miles during
The department is of the opinion that
General Miles made public the dispatches of
the secretary , General Shatter and himself ,
published this morning. Such action It re
gards as a breach of military regulations ,
but no military court can secure proof that
General Miles made public the dispatches. If
he and the person to whom they were fur
nished , refuse to give the information , as
several military trials have made it settled
law that no military court can compel a
civilian to testify 1f ho does not desire to.
General Miles also may be called to account
for 1ho Interviews with him , as unless die-
avowed , they would place him in the atti
tude of criticizing his superior officers and
subject him to military discipline.
The publication ot the dispatches today ,
taken toccther with previous Interviews in
the Kansas City Star , were the topic ot
conversation araonc officers of the War de
partment , and already tbero is a disposition
by some to take sides In the matter , while
others deplore the conditions as tending to
lower the tone of the army nnd to do irre
parable Injury to the service. It la expected
the controversy will extend to both houses
of congress , and tt is feared will have on
adverse effect upon legislation which will bo
asked to better the army. It is generally
understood that the regular force will have
to bo largely Increased , at least until the.
conquered Islands are disposed of , and it Is
feared that legislation in this direction will
bo hampered by the controversy between
the secretary of war and the general In com
mand of the army.

Rapid progress Is now being made by both
the local and state management of the South
Dakota State Fair Association for holding
Us fourteenth annual fair here , beginning
September 6 and continuing through the
month. The last two years the fair baa
been held in this city and Imi been a suc
cess , This year It Is the desire of the asso-
elation to make this fall's fair n record-
breaker for the state in every way and the
prospects ore that It will succeed and It Is
wholly in view of 'the ' fact that this section
of the state has never before experienced
such an immense crop of all kinds of grain ,
which will not only be of great benefit in
the way of making a magnificent agrlcul
tural exhibit , but la a cause of much re-
jolclni ; among the farmers nnd gives an ex
jillaratlnE tone to business in general. . The
prounds are In splendid condition , the wells ,
which are numerous nnd distributed so as la
reach all departments , are In good working
order , nnd , as proved the laat two years , are
a great benefit.

The democratic primaries to select dele
gates to attend the county nominating con-
ventlon In this city next Saturday were
held ' yesterday afternoon , There Is only one
ticket ' In each ward and In South Omaha ,
and there ore no signs ot a contest nny-
The populUta will hold their primaries
for the same purpose on Thursday evening ,
nnd the silver republicans on Friday even-
Ing. The three conventions will be held
There is an indisposition on the part of
the democrats to yield from the position
taken In favor ot a straight legislative
ticket , any .possible concession will be small.
The democrats say they will adhere to the
original proposition ot nominating a full
ticket themselves , but on the ticket may
appear the names of two populists nud one
The democrats declare there will be no
conference committees , but that they will
make such selections as they deem best ,
though an effort will bo madeto cheese
populists for the legislature from those ac
ceptable to their party , to avert as far us
possible symptoms of revolt. The same will
apply In their treatment of the silver re
publicans. J. Kelly McCombs of Jefferson
s slated as one of the populists to be hon
ored with a nomination , with a second from
the city , his identity not yet decided upon ,
" " or tbo silver republicans Thomas F.
Sturgis is on the list. These will all be
'or ' the house , as the democrats will take
all the senators.
For the Bonatorshlps , Henry Hobbens , W.
S. Poppjeton and Dudley Smith are the only
names one hears seriously mentioned among
the democrats. Smith was In the house i
wo years ago. The private interests which
ace said to have prevented Mr. Poppleton I
from being a candidate for congress , will '
not , It Is believed , prevent his running for
the senate ; while Mr. Smith's business en
gagements , which caused him to decline tbo
congressional nomination nt the last
moment , it is announced may bo postponed
lor a while if he should be sent back to the
cgislature. An urgent appeal was made to
W. A. Paxton , sr. , to permit his name to bo
uie < l fn connection with the senatorshlp , and
it is said that while he would have been
pleased with the nomination , ho felt It
would not bo wise just at this time to have
: ho stock yards cut so prominent a figure
a popocratlc politics.
For the six places In the house left after
allowing three to the other parties , these
Douglas. The name of John H. , Grossmann
Tom Flynp , John Llddell , Jerry jMulvnhlll
and Arthur Metz of Omaha ; Chris Meloher
and Jim Bulla of South Omaha ; John Hall
of Waterloo , and Oscar J. Plckard of
Douglas. . The name of John H. Grossman
tmd been used In connection with county at
torney until within the last few
days , but he went to Wisconsin last week
to spend the heated term , and after bis de
parture Judco Shields became a candidate
for the ; position and oushed his canVass. so
vigorously that he is now considered to have
a cinch on the nomination. To avoid a shut
out for Grossman ho Is now classed in the
list of legislative candidates.
The warmest fleht in the county conven
tion will be over the nomination of county
commissioners. Tom Iloctor coes out this
year , nnd Is a candidate for re-election.
But he will not bo allowed a walkaway.
John- Powers of the First ward wants to be
n commissioner , and if he gets it Hector
must be laid out. For the place held by
W. I. Klerstcad there are several candidates ,
the two leading ones being Fred Simpson ,
who tr.cd to beat George Mercer for the

NEED MONEY TO MOVE CROPS
Financier * See I nimunl Situation of
n I , nek of Small Currency In
CHICAGO , Aug. 30. The Post soys
There Is n probability of n lack of currency
as the work of moving the Immense crops
proceeds. Already the banks of New York
arc experiencing a shortage In small cur
rency and have not only appealed ( o the
Treasury department at AVashlngton for aid.
but have sent requests to Chicago banks to
send all the currency they can get , offering
to pay the oxprcssage.
> The amount of small bills the war has
put Into circulation togiHb.fr with the ex-
I traordlnary size of the crops , has made the
j | > question . of currency n serious problem.
Especlnlly Is there a lack of 'the smaller
denominations. One banker In Chicago says
the ( local Institutions have carefully kept
their supply of small currency and hnvo
plenty ( o carry them along for some time ,
but ho predicts before the end comes the
bankers j will be shipping gold. This Is an
unusual situation' It has been sotna time
slnco Chicago bankers have been compelled
to ship gold to pay balances. Hut this la
feared by leading financiers. They eay the
demand for currency will bo much greater
than the supply and us a consequence gold
\\111 have to bo transported in lieu of cur
, \ UlitliiKiilHlieil VlNltor.
Prof. AVlllIam P. Stewart of Now York
Is In Omaha. His intention Is to remain In
the city n couple of weeks and make a spe
cial study of the exposition.
Prof. AVlllIam P. Stewart Is an American
actuary of great prominence. Professionally
ho holds the unique position of Instructor
of agencies for the Mutual Life Insurance
company of New York , Mr. Richard M. Mc-
Curdy , president.
The professor Is not only an accomplished
mathematician , but an expert In vital sta
tistics. There are few countries -with which
ho Is not familiar , and no part of tbo United
States or Canada. Ho Is an honorary life
member of the I'hyldans * club of Chicago
and has been honored and recognized both
at home nnd abroad by official nnd lltornry
circles. As nn Insurance lecturer and au
thor ho is known \ery well wherever the
business of life Insurance Is conducted. But
the recognition of the professor Is not cou-
fined to the Insurance world. His knowl
edge and ability cover n wide range of
subjects. Ho Is generally Interviewed by
the press wherever he goes , because his
views are always timely , Interesting and
Instructive. He Is a ready and fluent
speaker and with the remarkable trait of
always saying something that Is worthy of
publication for Its originality of thought and
grace of language.
In coming to Omaha the professor passed
through Dubuque. where he stopped over a
few days nnd made nn Impromptu aullreea
to the profcwors and teachws there assem
bled , as the closing feature of their sum
mer school. As n specimen of the professor's
ability the address there delivered Is te-
pioduced In these columns from the Dubuque
Dally Times of August 27. It will bo found
a rich treat by all student ! ? and teachers
and of especial interest to tbo lay minds.
The visit of the professor to Omaha will
bo emphasized by a convention of the agents
of the Mutual Life Insurance company of
New York for the states of Iowa and Ne
braska , to bo held in Omaha Thursday , Fri
day 'and Saturday of this week , under the
auspices of the Messrs. Fleming Bros , , gen
eral agents for the district. The affair will
terminate with n banquet in honor of the
professor on Friday evening. Later on wo
shall doubtless have the plcaouro of pro
viding our readers with a characteristic In
terview with Ihls world-wide traveler , sci
entist and llteratcur.
