under the electrical-display, but he will

will ride at the head of a platoon of poltee
In the front ranks, repeats his suggestion
that people refrain from crowding as much
as possible, both for reasons of safety and
convenience. The" chief Insists that people

movement and the garrison at Barahona Is
expected to follow - their example. The
revolutionary gunboat Independence has
proceeded to San Pedro de Macorls to re
claim that port.
It Is rumored here that President Vas-
ques and his followers are In the northern
part of the Island, but communication has
been interrupted.
In San Domingo City the misery is great
some 200 families having been rendered
homeless through the burning of the sub
urbs of San Carlos. The wounded men In
the hospitals here are suffering from the
lack of proper food and medical attendance,
The departure yesterday of the United
States cruiser Atlanta Is much regretted
because of the assistance Its hospital staff
rendered the wounded. . The city Is growing
more quiet and business is reviving.
8AN DOMINGO, Aorll 19. (Delayed In
Transmission.) As a result of the fighting
between government forces and the revo
lutionists, which occurred here yesterday
the government has abandoned Ban Carlos
and Gulblba, and the houses are now oc
cupled by the rebels, who became pos
sessed of the ammunition, rifles and cannon
left by the government forces. The .where
bouts of President Vssques and his tol

they have gone to San Pedro de Macoris.

CAPE HAYT1EN, Haytt. Thursday. April
23. (Delayed in Transmission.) The Ger
man cruiser Vlneta. which railed at Port
Au Prlure, brings details of the fighting
at 8a a Domingo on April 18. Prealdent
Vaaques and bis forces attacked the city
vigorously at 8 In the morning. , After se
vere fighting, which lasted for one hour,
the government forces succeeded In gaining
an entrauce to the city. They were quickly
driven out, however, leaving behind many
dead or wounded. The death of Caslmetro
Corderio, minister of the interior, la con
firmed. After being driven from the city the
government troopa were seised with panic
and at 10 Prealdsat Vasques had about him
not mora than'nfty faithful followers. Ha
was forced to flee, abandoning his arma
and supplies. The disaster to the govern
ment troops was complete and the success
of ihe revolutionists overwhelming. When
Vlneta left San Domingo on the 20th quiet
had been restored in the city. Provisions
were scarce and dear.
The foreign consuls at Monte Crlstl have
asked for the presence of warships. Monte
Crist! Is sui rounded by the rebels and the
lack of provisions Is beginning to be felt.
Water Is sold there at 40 .cents per five
gallons. The plan -of the revolutionists
would seem to be to starve out Monte
Crlstl and force It to surrender. The
rebels around Monte Crlstl are commanded
by General Canavarro.

"I waa appalled by the perseverance and
enterprise of the American Journalist. Pro

a collection of 250. portrait and caricatures

BERLIN, April 28. Hugh J. Cannon. Mor
mon missionary. Intends to appeal to Em
peror William lor permission for the Mor
mons to remain In Germany, hoping that
hi majesty's policy ot religious tolerance
may Include the Mormon.
In hi petition Mr. Cannon sets forth the
morality of Mormon doctrines and refers
to the Inability of his adversaries to cite
any (sample in which the Mormon teach
ings have been eubverslve of the law of
the elate or orderly cltlsenshlp. He de
clare also that by the command of the
supreme head of the church, polygamy Is
not taught. Mr. Cannon last Wednesday
sent to the emperor and the empress copies
of the Book of Mormon In German. It no
aid la extended to the Mormon mission
aries by Emperor William, and If the
order of expulsion are enforced, all the
mtssionariea will leave quietly.
Mr. Cannon expects the United States to
Intervene in case where mtssionariea have
been maltreated, aa for Instance the affair
at Olsenbruek, Prussia, last January, when
two missionaries were dragged through the
streets of the town and Imprisoned for
three days. They were deported to Han

Report la that Certala Railroads Will
Dlsrea-ard Commission's Esprea
sloa on Grata Rates. .
CHICAGO, April 26. New York-Chicago
lines will Ignore the ruling of the Inter
state Commeice commission that the ;e
cent advance In the rate on grain and grain
products Is not Justified. Their position
is that the commission ha nothing to do
with the rates. An eastern traffic manager
I quoted a follows:
"The function of the commission Is to
decide whether a rate Is discriminative and
whether lower rates are given to some
shippers than to others. Even In such
cases the commission has to bring suit In
the courts to enforce its ruling, if the road
refuses to obey.
"Heretofore the railroad have been
changing rate twice a year, the rate dur
ing the cummer, when lake competition ha
to be met, being lower than the rates dur
ing the winter months, when navigation is
eloeed. This year no reduction ha been
mad at the opening of navigation. The
explanation for the refusal to lower rate
this season is that the railroad have not
care enough to handle all the business.
This, however. Is not borne out by the
facts. While the advance In grain rates
during the laat year, according to the tar
iff, ie not great, yet It la a fact that the
railroads are now getting fully 60 per cent
more, revenue out of the business than they
did before, the court issued he injunction
against rate cutting. The tariff rates prior
to the issuance
were a follow:
of Injunction on grain
per 100 lbs,
N-ew V
' (cents),
per 100 lb.
York ...
i or a
The present ratea are:
rer 100 lb, oer 100 lbs
Chicago . to New
xom zu
Mississippi to New
xorsi S3
Formerly tariffs Were made from 25 to
30 per cent higher than the railroads ex
pected to get. This provided a sufficient
margin to allow the cutting ot the rates
and the paying of rebates. Notwltbstand
ing these facts and the unanswerable con
elusions reached by the commission, tho
official of the eastbound roads, while they
admit that they get from 26 to 60 per cent
more revenue than formerly; Insist that the
cost of operation hse Increased from 60 te
100 per cent, and for this reason the recent
advance' In rates was made.
The position taken by the Interstate
Commerce commission ia Inconsistent and
will not be upheld by the courts. In It
ruling It says the advance In the rates on
Iron, steel, packing house product and
dressed beet is not unreasonable, although
the rates on these articles were advanced
from 26 to 60 per oent, while the advance
In grain ratea doe not amount to over 10
per cent. It Is probable," said this official.
"that at our meeting her next Wednesday
a reduction will be made In the eastbound
rates on flour, but this will not be on ac
count of the decision of ths commission,
but because ot existing traffic conditions."

CHICAGO, April 28. There Is every pros
pect that lumber wll) be more coatly In
the upper Mississippi and Ohio valleys than
It was lsst year because of the Increases
in the wages of the crews In lake trans
portation service and the higher price of
fuel. An Increase from $2.76 to $3 a thou
sand on lumber from Lake Superior and
Lake Michigan ports to Chicago and Lake
Erie port Is favored by leading members
of tho Lumber Carriers' association, which
controls 260 members In the lumber trades.
May ( the executive board will meet In
Detroit and the higher rale probably will
be authorized then.
If rates do not go up. It Is said that many
ships will be put out of commission because
the advance in wagea alone clip off the
profit that would have been made by trans
porting the timber at the ratea charged
last summer.
