ROME. Sept. 28. The negotiation for the
participation of the Vatican lit the St.
Louis exposition are proceeding satisfac
torily. It is considered preferable that the
Holy See shall send as Its representative
an Important cardinal of the curia. The
chief difficulty Is that the traditions and
etiquette of the Vatican are against send
ing cardinals, except as de'egates, to foreign
countries and they are never sent to ex
positions or fairs. The difficulty will prob
ably be overcome by sending a cardinal to
America in connection with church affairs
and he will afterward proceed to St. Louis,
thus paying to the United States the
papacy's highest tribute.

FEVER OF SELLING EXISTS
Diffiou.lt to Trace to the Source the Cause of
AS A RESULT DEALERS ARE DISQUIET
Supply of Money Raid 1 Be Ade
quate, but Holders Are 'Waiting
to Bee What Will
NEW YORK, Sept. 28 Wall street spent
another gloomy day which was devoted
mostly to trying to pusxle out where the
unending stream of liquidation came from
and what caused It. Information on the
subject waa extremely hard to get. It Is
pointed out that the great banks and cap
italists were not heard of In warning last
year during the high range of prices, while
they were seeking a prolltable market for
their holdings at that level. From this
It Is Inferred that-the buyers of a class
which decides market movements would
not be heard inciting others to buy it they
were themselves selling securities on such
terms In the present market. There 1m,
In fact, rather a notable lack of public
quotations of authorities pointing to tho
cheapness of stocks which has been heard
from time to time during the course of
the long decline, and at the price levels
considerably above the present. But It is
equally true that men peeking a market
to realize ready money at forced sale of
securities are not likely to miss any means
of concealing their transactions.
Source of Selling; Orders Inknorvn.
The source ot selling order in the pres
ent market is a baffling mystery and Infer
ences usually drawn from the personality
of the brokers employed are almost In
variably at fault. Tho conditions which
prompt the liquidation and the probable
limits of Its extent are consequently the
subject of grave disquiet and apprehen
sion.. It waa the failure of stock Jobbing oper
ations that brought the early selling, and
losses reported were almost wholly on
paper, as the previous gains had been.
But later episodes represent the failure of
enterprises In which extensive capital has
been embarked at demonstrably unproduc
tive employment. Capital thus sunk is
Comptroller Ridgley's opinion expressed
before the 1 Maryland and Washington
bankers that a "large percentage of the
loaning power has gone Into unproductive
Interests" formulates the dread of Wail
street over the present situation. I
The present condition in the Iron and
steel Industries, the high Interest rates,
especially on mercantile paper and the
curtailment of production In other lines,
caused the fear that overextension has
spread to Industrial and commercial lines,
representing additional "unproductive In
terests," to be followed by liquidation and
The present course of the banks Is di
rected toward conserving commercial
credits and to thU end they are Inex
orable to all promotions and financing pro
jects. The miscarriage of the projects is
still the cause of moot of tho liquidation.
While the great majority of Wall street's
prominent men showed a decided disin
clination to talk for publication, inquiry
among the very highest financial Interests
elicited statements that nothing of a se
rious or untoward character is appre
hended. Opinion of Jacob H. Sell Iff.
Jacob H. Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.,
commenting upon the stock market and
financial conditions, said:
It is simply a fever which must run Its
course. Just as we had a buying fever
two years ago and even last year. So the
selling fever has now taken hold of thu
people and reason counts for nothing.
No mutter what may be said a to the
causes which have brought about the pres
ent situation, prevailing conditions through
out tne country uo not justiry the ex
isting great decline in substantial securi
ties. The time will come when people will
wonder how conditions such us we see now
could have existed. .
it does not rpptar likely that the much
feared money stringency will materialize.
In fact, money la abundant now. only those
who control the supply are afraid In tha
vncertaln state of affairs to part with It.
The consequence is that we huve a super
abundant supply of money on dally call,
while time money cannot be had in large
But this will change, especially as it Is
almost certain that with the Inability of
corporations to finance their requirements,
general business throughout the country,
must, after a time, fall off, and when that
moment arrives we shall have a "laige
amount of funds seeking employment.
These surplus funds will to some extent
determine tho value of our. for ordinary
purposes, superabundant volu.ne of cur
rency and we shall again witness an In
creased demand for securities. So that it
is not at all unlikely, though this may
seem paradoxical, that when railroad earn
ings begin to decrease because of reduced
general business the value of railroad se
curities will begin to again increase.

Dawes Indian commission, dissolving
the temporary injunction granted. The case
Involved the right of the secretary to
pass on the 170,000 acres of land in the
Chrokeen Nation segregated for the use
of the Delaware Indians. The Indiana
claimed that the secretary ia without au
thority to fcpprovo. or disapprove of the
segregation, as it had been approved by
the Indians Interested, and asked that he
tie enjoined against taking such action,
landing the adjudication ot the question
by the court of claims. Soon after the rase
was filed the court granted a temporary
Injunction, but Judge Anderson today dis
In this petition they make some sensa
tional statements.. One of these accusa
tions is to the effect that members of the

mission by name. The petition alleges
Notwithstanding the lands have been
properly segregated the Dawes commis

agents of the United States toward your
petitioners have conspired and confeder

session of their lands, or for tnelr said
companies, under pretense of allotlng said
lands, in their official capacity as said
Dawes commission, to divert persona who
are willing to enter Into contract or lease
or sale, and have thus wrongfully allowed
segregation as hereinbefore referred to.
and continue to allow filings to be made
upon parts of the lands or your petitioners,
so segregated as aforesaid, and over which

have wrongfully, after said segregation
was made, allowed more than 100 per

foreman of the book bindery, against whose
retention the book binders' union Is waging
a fight. In connection with the complaints
against the schedule of charges tha public
printer points out that no profit had ever
been expected for that kind of work and
that the government merely charges coat
prices, and then adds 10 per cent to cover
the administrative expense of nonproductive
labor, such as messengers, doorkeepera,
watchmen, etc. The public printer also haa
appointed a commission who Is engaged In
taking an Inventory of all the stock ma
terial in the department.

A special meeting of the MoKinley club
was held at the Millard hotel last nigni
and plans were made for continuing and
strengthening the harmony movement In
augurated by the club. The matter, after
being discussed, was referred to the cam
paign committee with power to act It is
probable that the club will arrange for
holding meetings in connection with the
different ward clubs, and also for one
monster masa meeting after the republican
county convention, at which the leaders of
the factions heretofore existing In the re
publican party will bo called on to make
The editorial paragraph in Tha Bea
reading: "The machine has been thrown
Into the scrap pile and tho antl-machlno
has been sent to the machine shop for re
pairs," was referred to and endorsed as
expressing In brief the sentiments of the
club and the obituary ot the party fac
tions. This resolution waa unanimously adopted:
Whereas. Through the efforts of our
president and harmony committee tne re
publicans of Douglas county have held a
meeting for the purpose of promoting har
mony between the rival factions of the

lines within the party. -
later in the evening these resolutions
were introduced and enthusiastically
Resolved, That it is th sense and pur

well aa to those who took an active part
The next regular meeting of the club
will be on the night before the republican
primaries, and the succeeding regular
meeting on the night before the election.
They will . therefore probably be simply
perfunctory meetings. Frans. Crawford
chairman of the program committee, an
nounced that he is already arranging for
a series of talks by prominent republicans
of Nebraska and other states, which will
be given at the regular meetings after the
Candidates Tullls, Troup, Elgutter and
Stockham were present in response to the
Invitation of the club to candidates, and
in turn addressed the meeting. They con
gratulated the club on the success which
Its efforts to promote harmony havo so far
met and expressed the hope that actual
and permanent harmony will be brought
about through the club.
President Foster urged that as many
new members as possible be secured and
that every member from this time until tho
polls close, be an active worker for re
publican harmony and success.
J. E. Van Glider and John W. llattin
spoke along "harmony" lines. Frank
Crawford declared that what would do
more than anything eUte to promote per
manent harmony would be the election of
the entire republican ticket by an even
majority, showing that the republicans
had stopped bolting Individual candidates.
HASCALL AND TWO MORE GO
Former Members and Pair from Pres
ent Coanell Will Attend Balti
Former Councilman Isaac S. Huscall will
go to Baltimore with hla expenses paid as a
delegate to the League of American Muni
cipalities, in order that he may execute the
duties of a member of the executive com
mittee, and read a paper on "The Vital
Points in Municipal Government." This the
council decided upon yesterday afternoon:
also to send two members of the present
council along with the former official, each
to have the authority to spend not to ex
ceed $100 of the city's money in seeing the
sights and imbibing experience. It haa not
boen nettled which councllmen are to go,
aa they ell express a coy reluctance to get
so far away from dear old Omaha, Neb.
The council also directed Building In
spector Wlthnell to erect a reviewing stand
In front of the city hall, for the Ak-Sar-Ben
parades, and had its attention called to the
fact that the IS.fflO emergency appropriation
for repairs to unpaved streets would be ex
hausted last night. The sum of J 1.000 more
was requested by the engineering depart
ment on the strength of the fact that many
washouts remain to be filled.
Then the council went into executive
coinmittea session to wrestle with the prob
lem of how it shall continue to guy Con
tractor John Grant for mending hole in
the asphalt paving downtown. The protest
of the claims by the Barber Asphalt com
pany has Injected a disturbing element Into

Tonight tha situation In the Canadian Boo,
which has been the aoena of rioting by
the discharged employes of the lAke Su
perior company all day, la very grave
No reinforcements of militia have arrived
from outside and the only defense against
the mob, which grows every hour, Is a
more or less demoralised police force and
a small company of militiamen. An as
sault upon tho offline building by the mob
early this afternoon before the arrival on
the ground of troops was successful and
a mass or frenzied rioters secured pos
session ot the ground floor, destroying
everything movable that came in their
path. A crowd ot the office staff with
drawn revolvers prevented their gaining
access to the upper floors of tho building.
Every window and door In the building
Is smashed in. The arrival of troops on
the ground, armed with ball cartridges,
about 2 o'clock restored some eemblnnce
of order. The rioters then contented them
selves with throwing atones at the win
dows nnd threatening the soldiers, who
prevented any approach toward the build
ings. The greater number of the mob are Ig
norant Italians, Finns, Norwegians and
Frenchmen, the latter, perhaps, the hard
est of all to handle. All have been drink
ing more or less, although the bars this
evening obeyed the order to close up.
Tho mob Is one that cannot bo reasoned
with nnd the man they'seem most anxious
to get at is Mr. Coyne, the assistant man
ager, who in the absence of Mr, Shields,
Is in charge of the works. Mr. Coyne has
discreetly kept out of sight all day.
Company Supplies m House.
Late this aftomoon t.e leader of the
mob held a conference and demanded that
the company house the men In their hotel
and hoarding house and feed them until
the money for their wages la forthcoming.
In order to appease tho men thia demand
was granted and tho men have taken
possession of the White house, a large
boarding house operated by tha company.
Provisions are being sent there and the
men prtxseded' to hold a monster was
meeting at thin place. As the leaders
are making the most Inflammable" apeeohes
grave fears are entertained for tha out
come, after this meeting adjourns.
An attempt Is being made to etart the -street
car system In the Canadian 8oo,
which suspended operations this morning,
after an attack had been made on It.
Inasmuch aa most of the rioters were not
In the street at the time the trip was
made no disorder was encountered.
It Is estimated that there are 2.000 men
In the Boo tonight and these are enforced
by all the Idle rabble In town. A train
carrying 400 more woodsmen Is expected
to arrive tonight. The local police force
Is being strengthened by thu addition of
all the deputies who can be found, each
man being given a badge and a revolver
and orders to use tho latter when neces
sary. Considerable feeling haa ben
aroused over the shooting of two French-
men by the pol'ce during the trouble this ,
morning. Rioters claim that the police
used their revolvers when It was unneces
sary. Neither of the men was sorlously
The mob threatens an attack on the
police headquartera with a view of ef
fecting the release of all men whd have
been arrested. Both this building and that
occupied by the Are department is guarded.
The problem today developed ta beyond
the officials of tho company. Apparently
their only hope Is that the anger ot the
men will spend Itself and tha men will get
out ot town by degrees.
Maaa Meeting Quiet.
The mass meeting of the men held tonight
In the "White house," the big boarding
house of 'the company which haa been
turned over to the men, was unexpectedly
quiet and orderly. An attempt waa made
to allay the passions of the men by Hi
offer made by the Brotherhood of Woods
men, an organization maintained among
the lumbermen tu furnlali an attorney free
of charge, to collect all pay checks left in
his hands. The meeting broke tip without
any particular confusion or disorder. About
10 :i0 an alarm of fire was turned In from
the pulp inllla and the department re
sponded, but no blaze could be discovered.
The turning in of tho alarm was evidently
the work of some of the rough element
who has gathered In large proportions to
help along the work of disorder. An effort
wan made late today to get a body ot the
rioters to cross the river to the American
sldn and put the power house and street
railway out of commission, but it Waa not
successful. On account of thla rumor the
local company of state troops will mo
bilized at the armory and some extra po
licemen were put on duty. A battalion
of regulars from Toronto, tha Grenadiers,
are expected to arrive at 7 o'clock tomor
row morning and their coming Is awaited
with feverish impatience. i
Failure to Pay Angers.
A meeting of the employes ot the com
pany was held today and Its proceeding
were said to be of the most heatud char
acter. The particular grievances which
seem to have inflamed the men to acta ot
disorder was the promises to pay today,
when the men who made the promises, the
employes believe, knew they could hot b."
fulflllei. After this meeting adjourned the
men went In a body to the office of thu
company determined to get their money or
"get satisfaction," as they put It. On the
doors of the offices which were guarded
by police, the following notice was posted:
Officers and employes of the Consolidate I
