Mrs. Cleveland's Eye Still Causing Her
Considerable Pain—Villagers Gather
Outside of the Cottage to Hear Her
Sing— A Family Reunion and Sail on
the St. Lawrence.
Forest Port, July 15. —Notwithstanding
that the sun arose gloriously over the hills
this morning there were no signs of lifo at
the residence of Rev. Mr. Cleveland, where
the Presidential party is stopping, until
nearly 9 o’clock. During last evening Mrs.
Cleveland played a number of selections on
the piano and sang one of her favorite songs.
The music, however, seemed to attract the
villagers, and as soon as the fact was dis
covered she ceased. The curtains were not
drawn and the party could be seen chatting
together. Mrs. Cleveland, although still
wearing a bandage over her eye, seemed to
enter into the conversation with energy.
Bouquets presented to her at Clin
ton wore displayed about the parlors.
THE PRESIDENT ILL.
The President did not rise to breakfast
with the remainder of the family, but re
mained in bed till noon. He was suffering
from fatigue and a slight attack of cholera
morbus. Dr. A. G Brower called during
the morning and gave him a little medicine.
The Railway Commissioners also made the
President a brief call. Mrs. Cleveland’s eye
pained her still, and altogether the party is
sadly in need of the rest they are now en
INVITED TO OTHER PLACES.
The agent of one of the hotels on the St.
Lawrence river arrived here this morning
for the purpose of endeavoring to induce
the President to hold an informal reception
at a hotel designated by him during the af
ternoon to-morrow. The citizens of Water
town, too, are very desirous of en
tertaining the Presidential party for
i short time to-morrow morning.
The President, however, has decided not
to allow arrangements to bo made for the
excursion to-morrow. According to the
original plan, the special train conveying
the President and Mrs. Cleveland was to
reach there at 10:30 o’clock in the morning
and was to be met by General Manager
Britton, of the Rome, Watertown and Og
densburg railway, accompanied by a num
ber of Mrs. Cleveland’s friends. The train
was scheduled to reach Cape Vincent at 11
o’clock and the party were to embark at
once on the steamer St. Lawrence for a
day’s ride among the islands. The Presi
dent’s arrangements provided for dinner on
board the boat.
A FAMILY REUNION.
Forest Port. N. Y., July 15, 11 p. m.—
It is learned that to-morrow’s jaunt will
partake of the nature of a family reunion.
Family affection among the Clevelands is
very marked, and the trip to Forest Port
was made with this meeting in view. Be
sides the President and his wife and Rev.
and Mrs. W. N. Cleveland, the party will
consist of Miss Rose Elizabeth Cleveland, of
Holland Patent, and Mrs. Yoemans, of
Wayne county, his sisters, his nieces.

Carrie Hastings, of Smith’s CoUege, Mass :
Secretary Fairchild and wife, and ( sweg)
friends. The President will not depart fruni
the original arrangements to spend the day
on a steamer among the Thousand Islands.
The train will leave Alder creek about 9:30
o’clock in the morning and return about the
same hour in the evening. The President
went to his room again in the afternoon and
remained there until nearly 7 o’clock, when
ho began to prepare for the reception.
A GREAT NIGHT.
It was a great night for the hamlet of
Forest Port. People drove in from all sec
tions and in all kinds of conveyances. At
7:30 o’clock the reception began. The band
gave an open air concert on the hill just
beside the parsonage, and the anxious peo
ple filled the steps and yard, the crowd ex
tending in an orderly line out to the street.
The guests were presented to the President
and his wife by Mrs. \V. N. Cleveland and
Railroad Commissioner Kernan. The lady
of the White House wore an evening cos
tume of cream-colored lace over a white
satin, and at her throat glistened a handsome
crescent of diamonds. The President was in
full evening dress. During the evening over
700 persons were shaken by the hand by both
the President and his wife. Little children
and aged men were alike hospitably re
ceived. During the day the President re
ceived the lithographed invitation of Post
Root Grand Army of the Republic of Syra
cuse to visit that city, but he will probably
be obliged to decline Telegrams also
poured in during the evening, requesting
that brief stops bo made by the excursion
to-morrow at different towns along the route
from this village to Cape Vincent. No
definite replies were made.

Boston, July 15. —The steamer Carroll
arrived to-day from Halifax, having on
board twenty-nine passengers of the lost
steamer Merrimack. The passengers ap
peared to be in good health and looked none
the worse for their mishap. They say they
saw no organized attempt at robbery by the
crew or any marked degree of drunkenness,
as has been charged, although a few pieces
of baggage were broken open and rifled and
some of the crew were under the influence
of liquor. But in general terms they speak
highly of the efforts of the officers and men
to get them ashore and prevent loss of life
THE CAPTAIN’S STORY.
N. S., July 15.—Tug A. C.
Whitney, which arrived this morning from
Liverpool, N. S., brought the remaining
passengers ami crew of the wrecked steamer
Merrimack. Capt. Crowell is at Liverpool.
He has made the following statement: “The
Merrimack ran ashore in a dense fog which
settled down between half and three-quar
ters of an hour before she struck. Fog
whistles had been regularly sounded during
that time. The ship was in charge of Pilot
Reynolds, a native of Point La tour, who
has been piloting steamers on this coast for
the last twenty years. This was his first
accident. When the fog set in the pilot,
first officer and I were in the wheel house,
and w hile we were there the ship struck.
CAREFULNESS OF THE PILOT.
“Quartermaster Morrison was at the
wheel. When the fog set in the course was
changed by the pilot’s order a half point off
shore as a precaution. During all our trips
last year our course in that vicinity was
southwest by west, which carried us off to
the southward, and steering half a point
south of this was a precautionary measure,
adopted on account of the fog. When the
shij i struck, and for ten minutes thereafter,
the fog was so thick that the light on the
island could not be seen. It then lifted and
we saw the light, and knew' we were on
Little Hope Island. The first indication we
had of being near danger was the vessel
striking the nicks. She kept afloat for half
or two-thirds her length for a time and then
settled on the rocks, listing some to port.
The ship was making nine knots when she
struck. In my opinion we were carried out
of our course further than we were aware
of by the current setting in westerly to
wards the land.”
A CATTLE COMPANY’S SUIT.
Cheyenne Ranch Owners Charged
With Cheating a Scotch Syndicate.
Chicago, July 15. —Suit for 8800,000 was
begun in the United Stab's Court this morn
ing by the Swan Land anil Cattle Company,
limited, of Edinburg, through their solici
tors, against Alex. H. Swan and Thomas H.
Swan, of Cheyenne, and others. In 1883
the Swan and [’rank Live Stock Company,
the National Company and the Swan Krnnk-
Authony Cattle Company, composed
of the above named parties,
were grazing cattle over the
ranges in Wyoming Territory. These cor
porations joined with James Wilson, of
Edinburgh, and sold out, for $2,553,825, to
the Swan Land and Cattle Company, which
Wilson hail worked up among
Scottish capitalists, among them being
Lord Douglas Garden and Oliu J.
McKenzie. The complaint alleges that
the purchasers relied upon the false repre
sentations of Alexander H. Swan, upon un
tried inventories of the cattle, and upon the
reports of one Thomas Lawson, an agent in
the pay of the selling companies. The com
plainant says that instead of 89,167 head of
cattle, as represented, there were no more
than 00,000, and that in many other re
spects were the inventories which were
shown them untrue. In making the sale,
the complainant says that Swan represented
that the number of calves from the
herds would equal 22,628, while in fact
they were only 1,600. The complainants
ask SBOO,OOO which they sav would only
about cover the loss they sustained. The
suit brought to-day is a sequel of the failure
of the firm of Swan Bros., of Cheyenne, a
few weeks ago. It was then announced that
the Swan Land and Cattle Company would
be in no way affected, but it is known that
immediately after the Swan Bros.’ failure
some of the Scotch directors of the cattle
company hurried to this country and it is
supposed that the suit brought to-day is a
result of their investigations.
ROSEN FELD VS COLLAPSE.
An Offer of 25c. on the Dollar Made
to the Creditors.
Chicago, July 15.— The creditors of
Maurice Rosenfeld & Cos. met this after
noon. J. F. Gillett presidoil and said that
ho had been ]iermittod to examine ilw books
of the firm and found that their original
capital was $50,000, but after paying $33,000
for New York Stock Exchange membership
they only had $17,000 left to use in their
business. Their liabilities wore $609,000 and
their collectible assets were assessed to pay
10 per cent. The firm’s rtffatives would pay
15 per cent., making a total of 25 per cent.
A large number of creditors have already
signified their willingness to accent the 25c.
offered, but stock houses to trie number
of six or seven refused, as they had
already secured enough property of the
Rosomelds in the shape of the New York
Stock Exchange membership and “other
security to net them 25 percent, ot their
claims, which amount to about 8100,000. It
was the sense of the creditor, preient that
the offer waa a fair one, and that they had
better accept it. A special committee com
posed of G. N. Culver, Alex Ge idis and C.
\V. Comes was appointed to confer with the
stockholders and try and induce them to
settle at. 35e. Should they refuse it was
proposed to offer them 4bc. and try and get
the other 15 per cent., cr about $15,000, re

CRIME IN IRELAND.
The Bill Passes the Committee Stage
in the Upper House.
London, July 15. —The crimes bill was
discussed in committee in the House of
Lords to-night. Lord Northbrook (Liberal)
expressed surprise at the summary disposal
of the debate on the bill yesterday. Before
proceeding further with Irish legislation he
urged the (arty leaders to give the country
definite answers on four points: Were the
Irish members to remain in Westminster ?
Was the providence of Ulster to lie treated
separately from the rest of Ireland ? Was
the duty to maintain law and order to be en
trusted to an Irish parliament ? Was power
over land to be committed to an Irish par
Lord Rosoberry (Lilieral) held that dis
cussion of these isiints was outside the scope
of the crimes bill. The Liberal peers, lie
said, were in a hopeless minority, and could
do no more than protest against the bill. In
conclusion, he said he felt bound to warn
the government of the effect of the measure.
Their administration in Ireland would have
to be continued in a state of siege. After
further brief discussions the bill was passed
in committee without amendment. The
bill will be read the third time on Monday.
A heated discussion occurred in the lobby
of the House of Commons to-night between
Dr. Tanner and Walter Ilume Long, mem
ber for Wilts, during wliicb the former
called Mr. Long a “and snob.” The
Speaker of the House will be informed of
the affair and trouble is expected.

Vienna, July 15. —Prince Ferdinand of

election to the Bulgarian throne. In his re
ply he said: “If I should follow my heart’s
impulse, I would hasten to Bulgaria and put
myself at the head of the nation. But a
Prince elected ruler of Bulgaria must respect
treaties. Such respect will increase the
strength of the Bulgarian government and
assure the grandeur and prosperity of the

which Bulgaria owes her freedom. I hope
to prove my devotion to Bulgaria when the
moment comes. The courage, prudence,

A TRAIN OF TANKS.
Everything Enveloped in Flames Al
most Simultaneously With the
Crash—Nine Bodies Burned to a Crisp
Already Recovered The Number of
Corpses in the Debris Still Uncer
St. Thomas, Ont., July 15.—A terrible
accident occurred at the crossing of the
Grand Trunk railway and the Michigan
Central railway in this city' about 7 o’clock
this evening. An excursion train oil the
Grand Trunk road, from Port Stanley, ran
into a jtassing freight train on the Michigan
Central road with a number of ears loaded
with oil attached. The engine crashed into
one of these, when the oil instantly
took fire and burned fiercely’, commu
nicating to the ears on both
trains, and extending to Griffins’ warehouse,
coal and lime sheds adjoining the track on
the west and to John Campbell’s dwelling
on the east, all of which were burned to the
ground with their contents. Engineer
Donnelly, of the excursion train, waa buried
in the wreck. The fireman jumped and es
caped with slight Injuries. The forward
ear of the excursion train was tilled with
passengers, who made desperate efforts
to escape, but notwithstanding that
hundreds of bravo and willing hands
were immediately at work to assist in their
rescue, it is stud that a number of lives were
lost and that the bodies will be burned be
yond recognition. At 8 o’clock, when thou
sands of people were crowding around the
burning pile, one of the oil tanks on the cars
suddenly exploded, throwing hundreds to
the ground with great force und scattering
blazing oil in all directions, and severely 7,
perhaps fatally, burning many. Nino bodies
have already beeh discovered, burned to
ALL STILL IN DOUBT.
It is almost impossible to ascertain with
any certainty the names of those lost in the
wreck until the arrival of the late train
for Port Stanley. There are many conflict
ing rumors, but it seems almost certain that

J. A IV. Mickelboroughs dry goods store,
Mr. Zealand’s child, and the wife and child
of James Smithers, a dry goods merchant ,
were killed. Mrs. Zealand was got out

LESS THAN LAST YEAR.
Fifty Million Bushels of Wheat to ba
Carried Over—The Depression in Se
curities Possibly Explained in Part
by the Heavy Investments in Realty
—The Failures of the Week.
New York, July 15. — R. G. Dun Sc
Co.’s weekly review of trade says: The
exports of breadstuff's, cotton, animals and
animal products and petroleum in June
were valued at $83,668,277 against $38,638,-
224 for the same month last year. Bread
stuffs increased $5,300,000 and cattle $3,710, ~

ports as lust year the aggregate for Juue

Imports, making an excess of imports for
three months of $40,000,000. Cotton ac
counts for $25,000,(XX) of this loss and recent
failures indicate that this speculation wax
not wiser than tho one on wheat.
The unloading of those who bought wheat
after Kershaw’s failure has depressed No. '3
red here to a fall of over 40. for the
week ain I 34 V- since June 30, with exports
of 153,629,000 bushels for the past year. The
stock carried over includes 34,000,000
bushels. Visible supply B,OCX),(XX) bushels in
California, and certainly 10,000,000 in far
mers’ hands, besides all the Hour on hand,
facts which establish the correctness of tli*
estimates mnde months ago that the surplus
would exceed 5,000,000 bushels.
THE STOCK MARKET.
In spite of railroad earnings, which
gained 15 per cent, in June, and encour
aging assurances by prominent men, and
continued proof that the interstate act is
not to be so construed by the courts as tod®
all the harm apprehended the price of
stocks has lieen lower. The market de
pends not uiion values, or earnlngß, bu#
upon individual notions as to the question
whether the famous “Ives deal” is merely*
undealt or a misdeal. It is a case of a long;
row of bricks on end. If one banker call*
a doubtful loan he fears that it will causa
other calls and toppling over all along the
line. 8o everybody waits for the market,
and the market waits for the long-prom
ised “settlement” to materialize.
WHERE THE MONEY HAS GONE.
Why invest irs are not buying the, statis
tics or new buildings and real estate may
explain. If the country has in si*
months invested SWXI,iKK),OO() in new build
ings, $100,000,000 more in developing!

the cost of the buildings and os much inorei

in new railroad buildings it cannot have aai
unlimited subsidy to employ in lifting
the prices of securities. The cash outside J
tho Treasury and banks, with the deposits,
amounted to $2,142,000,000 a year agnofl
SBS 70 per capita, and now amount to $2,-
326,(XX),(XX), or $37 70 per capita.
The present prices of stocks, less the as
sessments paid, are about 3 per cent, higher
than a year ago. Pork is 33 jer cent, higher,
cotton 10 per cent, higher, coffee 08 per
cent, higher, pig iron 12 per cent, higher,
steel rails 10 per cent, higher, wheat 4 per
cent, higher, corn 5 percent, lower, oil 9 jier
cent, lower, and beef 13 per cent, lower.
From all interior points the trade reports ara
favorable considering the season, and col
lections fair. Unusual activity in tobacc*
is noted at Cincinnati.
The coke strike does not end at Pittsburg
and iron is stronger. Western nail makers
are dismissing the formation of a pool, with
results yet unknown. The New York state

less for tho half year than the Pittsburg
account, which w ould make the half year's
consumption of domestic and imported iroii

tons for the first half of 1886.
The Treasury has neither drawn from nos

week, and tbe silver receipts at New York
continue only 12 per cent, of the total. It
is tho belief of the Comptroller that the new

reasons be loss than usual.
