If there Is virtue In the Idea that nothing
nncceeils like BUCCCBS the remaining weeks
of the Transmlsslsslppl Exposition should
bo marked by a prosperity unprecedented
In the history of expositions. At the end
of sixteen weeks and four days of actual
opiirntlon the enterprise has attained a de-
Krce of financial success that has not been
npproxlmatcd by any previous exposition
111 , this country. If its gates were closed
sW < ( lay it has money In the bank to pay
every dollar of Indebtedness nnd dispense
a handsome dividend to the stockholders.
According to the books of Secretary Wake-
flold , the present Indebtedness of the ex
position Is $68,000 , which stands against a
cjfsh balance In the bank of $113.000 , ex-
bluslvo of the receipts of yesterday. For
eorno tlmo past nil bills have been paid
whenever presented with the proper vouch-
and the cash surplus has steadily nc-
j'Tho present Indebtedness consists almost
Jbxcluslvely of balances duo on contracts
"and the operating expenses for September.
The first aggregates $26,000 and the latter
$48,000 at the maximum cost of $2,000 a
day. Of this latter amount $8,000 has al
ready been taken up on account of weekly
pay rolls and the total obligation on ac
count of operating expenses Is $40,000.
Notes aggregating $2,000 are outstanding ,
making a total Indebtedness of $68,000.
The balance In the bank yesterday morn
ing was $113,000. When yesterday's re
ceipts arc deposited the amount will ex
ceed $120,000 , or more than $30,000 above the
liabilities. This statement Is of peculiar
interest at this time on account ot an al
leged effort on the part of persons Inter
ested in the St. Louis stock show to dls-
ectnlnato the insinuation that this exposi
tion will not bo able to pay Its stock pre
miums. The cost of the stock show Is com-
prism' in two Items. The management hai
, offortd $35,000 In premiums and the bulld-
| \lngs , blch are now In course of construc
tion , will cost sllchtly less than $20,000.
Of the aggregate $55,000 , bills amounting
to $11,000 have already been paid ' and the
bulk of the remainder will not be'dtto until
nearly the end of October. But If every
dollar of the entire amount was dun to
morrow the exposition has the money In the
bank to nay It and still have a handsome
balance left In the treasury. Over l.COO.OOC
people have visited the exposition during
the summer nnd the total receipts to date
have been nearly $700,000.

MURDER ON YACHT CHISPA
Captala nrnokn the Victim of T
Who Art * on IJoaril In
Search of IMnnder.
SAUSALITOU , Cal. , Sept. 24 , A murder
ot appalling brutality and Intangible mys-
lery occurred on the yacht Chlspa , lying oft
: hU place , this morning about 1:30 o'clock.
Captain J. Moss Brooks , master ot the vee-
vel , returned to his cabin late last night
Intoxicated. Peter Nelson , a sailor , was
awaiting his arrival before going to his
bunk in the forecastle. About 1:30 : a. m. ,
N'clson says he was awakened by screams
of the captain calling for help and crying
murder. Nelson ran to the cabin and , just
as he passed the hatchway , ho was conFronted -
Fronted by a tall man with a pistol In his
hand. Nelson backed out of tbo door and
ran for the side of the vessel. The tall man
shouted to a companion : "Hold him off , "
and Nelson Jumped into the watqr. The
short man fired several shots at Nelson ,
one of which struck the sailor In the leg.
Meantime the people on board the yacht
Alamedn , hearing the nolso , put out in a
boat for the Chlspa. They picked Nelson up
and went on board , bat the murderer or
murderers had escaped.
The cabin ot the little vowel presented a
hoiriblo sight. Blood was everywhere , an-1
lying In his bunk dead was Captain Brooks.
There were evidences of a struggle. The
dead man'u. head had been beaten to a jelly ,
and It is supposed that after the first out
cry his murderers killed him. His watch
had been taken , and the drawers In the
cabin had been ransacked. The murdered
man was an Englishman , aged about 56
years , and had been employed by Isadore
Gutte , owner of the yacht , for nineteen
years. Ho was an exceedingly unpopular
man and rarely would Bailers work under
him more than a few weeks. Robbery was
probably the motive.

WASHINGTON , Sept. 24. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Much Interest is felt by officials of
the Agricultural department In regard to a
test case which will probably be Instituted
at an early date relative to the validity of
a patent granted to a German corporation
on anti-diphtheria scrum. When the patent
was first allowed , Dr. Salmon , chief of the
bureau ot animal Industry , was ot the opin
ion that the patent covered the process used
in production of the serum utilized In the
treatment ot hog cholera and other animal
diseases. An examination was carefully
made by Dr. Salmon , and he said toda }
that stock raisers could without ny hesltanc )
uao scrums distributed by the department
for the treatment of the animal body. This la
the position taken by the Agricultural de
partment and It remains to bo seen whether
the German corporation will attempt to In
terfere with the use of serums being pro
duced by the government.
Dr. A. L. Mathews was today appointed

LONDON , Sept. 24. The recent dramatl (
development of the Chinese puzzle , which ;
came as a disagreeable surprise to the people
ple of Great Ilrltaln , was Intensified by th (
fact that they were reveling In their ap
parent diplomatic triumph In the dlsgrnc <
of LI Hung Chang and the wane of Russlac
Not only In Great Britain , but abroad , the
queen dowager's proclamation Is Interpreted
as a fresh defeat for British policy nnd at
act of revenge upon England's arch enemy
LI Hung Chang.
It Is generally believed that the mlsslor
of Marquis Ito , the Japanese statesman , t <
China , for the purpose of attempting t (
bring about an offensive and defensive nV
llance between Japan and China , was thi
lost straw which roused the tigress In tin
empress dowager and enabled the Kusslai
party , led by LI Hung Chang , to regnlr
Its Influence. It Is well known that th <
Chinese , In spite of their defeat In the wa :
with Japan , still regard the Japanese ai
Inferior beings and the Intense hatred o
the dowager empress for anything Jupanesi
IB also an acknowledged fact.

China will lead to a closer uuderstandlnf
between the United States , Great ) Brltali
and Japan , resulting In combined pressure
In favor of reforms. Tbo French news
papers rejoice at the prospect of LI Huni
Chang's return to power , simply because 1
would bo unpleasant for Greatt Britain. Thi
Temps , referring to the reform edicts o
the emperor of China , says :
"His reforming ardor was marked b ;
more zeal than discretion. To suggest tha
the mandarins publish their accounts of re
colpts and expenditures was Ilka plucklni
out their souls. "
The Impatience here to learn the outcomi
of the journey of General Sir Herbert Kltch
ener to Fashoda Is In no wise allayed nnt
although the press on both sides of the chan
ncl Is calmer this week , yet anxiety Is evl
dencod In Great Britain In regard to th' '
effect which the determined action of Gen
cral Kitchener will have upon Franco , li
view of the critical political situation ti
rhat country. There arc fears that th
French authorities Way seek a foreign ill
version from their Internal strife. Th
Parisian newspapers all , however , add
more compromising tone , and Instead o
declaring that the French flag will neve
bo lowered at Fashoda , they now put for
ward the occupation of that place by Majo
Marchand as a lever by which Franco ma
yet bo able to obtain advantages elsewhere
The Eclair , for example , says : "Grea
Britain must buy our renunciation of ou
claims there , as sbo bought Germany's.
The Temps also declares that the question I

The alarming situation In Franco rivet
the attention of Curope. The excitement 1

cognizance of General Chenolne , who BUC
cecded the latter as minister of war , acte
entirely without reference to the premlei
M. Brlsson , who , with a majority of his col

proceedings. The supporters of the cablnc
declare that M. Brlsson , in order to sav

Chenolno and General Zurllnden nnd eve
arraign them for treasonable conduct. Onl
bold action will secure the supremacy c
One satisfactory feature of the prcuecntlo
of Colonel Plcquart Is that the war office ha
engaged to give him an open trial , whlc
M. Brlaion Insisted upon before he consente
to the prisoner's transfer to the mllltar
prison of Chcrchemldl.
The friends of Colonel Plcquart declat
that if ho Is publicly tried ho will thro

If , in order to oppose a revision , ho re

or congress for the election of president
will meet at Versailles within twenty-foe
hours and M. Faure will be ro-elected by
crushing majority ot those who are hostll

their families drove to the Hotel Cecil
They were all thoroughly tired when the ;
arrived at the hotel and retired to theli
rooms , which look over the Thames.
Senator Gray was somewhat upset b :
the journey and Is suffering from neurnlgl <
pains , which compelled him to lie dovM
for the cventnc.
Mr. Day received your correspondent li
his room , where , owing to the cold , he hai
n brleht flro burning. Ho said : "I ha\
had a good trip and feel all right. W
start for Paris Monday morning , as v >
want to cet to work without delay. "
"Will there be any conferences prelim
Inary to the formal meeting on October I1
"We , that Is the United States commls
sloners , will meet , I h vo no doubt , over ;
day. You cannot go Into a conference o
this kind without full preparation and wi
Intend to avail ourselves of every oppor
( unity for that purpose. "
"Will there be any preliminary Informa
meeting with the Spanish commissioner
before the actual confcrenee begins ? "
"That I can't answer , but I do not expec
It. We will meet the Spanish commission
ers October 1 for the first time as far ns
"You expect , I suppose , the conferenc
will not' bo prolonged ? "
"I can't tell , no one can tell. "
"In view of Mr. Chamberlain's speech n
Danvers last night , would you give you
opinion on Anglo-American relations ? "
"No. I must ask you to excuse me am
all the commissioners from expressing an ;
views upon that question , or upon any po
lltlcal or International question until we ar
through with the treaty wo have como ovc
to make. That Is our work on this side ,
speak now for the commission ns a whole.1
Mr. McArthur , assistant becretary of th
commission , said : "The commissioners hav
received numerous offers of hospitality whll
here , but they have decided to avail themselves
solves of none of them. They will rest toda
and tomorrow , starting for Paris Monda
morning , where they will commence thel
work Immediately. They feel they cannr
accept any Invitations tendered them untl
they get ahead with their work. "
"How will the Introduction of the Amer

will It bo deferred till the first formal meet

"All these matters of diplomatic procedur
are left to our ambassador at Paris to ar

Your correspondent learns from a pas
conger aboard tbo Campania that the enl
full meeting of the commissioners held dut
Ing the voyage was Friday night when Mi
Day summoned hU colleagues to decide o
a reply to an Invitation forwarded to th
commissioners through the United Statt
consul at Liverpool by the lord mayor nn
corporation of Liverpool to attend a ban
quet given by the. corporation tonight to th
officers of the British channel squadron no
In the Mcrtey. The commission decided t
decline this kindly offer of boai.ltallty as
had arranged to go straight through to Lor
den. The unanimous feeling of the commie
sloners waa that until their work was don
they could not take part In any public fum
tlene. At the same time they expretac
their sense of the courtesy and good fcelln
displayed by the Liverpool corporation an
of their great regret at being prcventc
from availing themselves ot It.
IimtructlonN Kept Secret.
The Instructions given the commlsslonei
remain wrapped In mystery. Senator Gra
said to Senator Davis one day aboard th
"Tho newspapers are very curious abov
our Instructions , but they have not sue
ccedcd In getting them. "
To which Senator Davis replied , smiling
"Our Instructions , yes , where are they ? "
His manner Implied that they either dl
not exist at all or were of a very vagu
character. Your correspondent was talkln
to an Important United States official o
this subject whoso name he IB not at llbert
to mention , who paid :
"Senator Frye says : 'What wo have flrt
got to do Is to agree among ourselves
Surely when the commissioners accepte
their offices they also accepted the instruc

1'AIIIS , Sept. 21. ( New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram. ) As the final
esponslblllty for revision I now thrown
) nck on the cabinet by an equal division
on the commission the untl-Ureyfus party is
Ictcrmlncd to pare no effort to Intimidate
the cabinet. Thu coarsest attacks and threat *
arc fulminated against Hrisson.
The crlxtB Is rapidly assuming the ravefifi
) hose. The tone ot the press Is distinctly
revolutionary , and tonight there Is great
iclivity In the highest military circles. The
1'arls situation seems certain to cventttatn
cither In a military coup d'etat , followed
by an attempted Orleanlst restoration erin
in the ascendancy of the extreme left with
a steady tendency to the subversion ot social
order and the revival of communism.
It Is quite possible that the deliberations
of the Araerleo-Spnnlsh peace commission
may bo Interrupted by the crack of rifles
In the streets of I'arls , and barricades may
some morning obstruct the passage of thcso
pacillc-Uors from Hotel Continental to Qua !
Zurllnilcn Is the pivot on which the crisis
turns. Ho was given the war portfolio to
remove him from the governorship of Paris ,
where ho was the military autocrat of the
capital. Ho Incurred the dlnpleasurc of hla
military colleagues by accepting It , nnd is
now prepared to go any length to prove ta
them hie loyalty to the army.
The parties cugu fi ! l 'this ' Btruggls
neither oxpcct nor glvo quarter. That
Henry's dealh was murder Is now universally
believed. Your correspondent won't ' today to
Mont Vnlerlen fortress , whcro Henry met
death , to BOO the wardens who had charge
of him nnd ascertain the teal clrcums.anceo (
of Henry's last moments , ns no Inquiry
worthy the namn has been held by the mil
At Mont Valcrlpn the commandant Bent
word hn could make no statement , but the
correspondent learned from subordinate of
ficials that tbo soldiers who had Henry In
chnrgo were no longer at Mont Valoilon.
They had been ordered abroad to Algeria ,
ostensibly , as a punishment for their Inef
ficient , watch upon 4ho prisoner.
This is n , moHt suspicious proceeding , for
that Is not 'the ' species nf punishment
awarded for remlssness of that kind , but
tha spiriting away of these men Is typical
of the unscrupulous determination of the
general staff to balk justice whenever it
conflicts with their Interests.
1'AIUS. Sept. 24. The cabinet met today
nnd deckled to postpone Its decision ou the
question of the proposed revision of tha
Dreyfus cane until Monday next , owln ? ta
tbo absence from the meeting nt the minister
of finance , M. Peylral , and the minister ot
agriculture , M. Vlgner.
PARIS , Sept. 21. It was ofuelnlly an
nounced this afternoon that the civil com
mission which has been examining the docu
ments In the Dreyfus case , with the view of
reporting to the government on the ndvls-
nblllty of reopening it , Is equally divided
for and against revision , and the government
considers that this dtviilon gives It full lib
erty of action nnd also of responsibility.
Therefore the government has decided to
wait until Monday , \\hen a full cabinet ruet-
Ing will bo held and a decision arrived at.
