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 joying. 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 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 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.

SAVANNAH, GA„ SATURDAY, JULY 1(>, 1887. A FOG CAUSED HER LOSS. SURVIVORS OF THE MERRIMACK LANDED AT BOSTON. The Captain of the Ship Tells How the Disaster Probably Occurred The Pilot and All the Officers Faithful to Their Duty According to the Cap tain’s Story. 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 and property. 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 quired to pay that percentage from rela tives. Almost Killed.

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 liament? 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.

Such respect will increase the strength of the Bulgarian government and assure the grandeur and prosperity of the nation. I hope to justify the Porte's confi deuce and obtain the consent of the powers and to regain in time Russia’s sympathy, to which Bulgaria owes her freedom. I hope to prove my devotion to Bulgaria when the moment comes.

CAUGHT IN BLAZING OIL AN EXCURSION TRAIN RUNS INTO 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 tain. 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.

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 a crisp. ALL STILL IN DOUBT.

The stock carried over includes 34,000,000 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.

The Treasury has neither drawn from nos added to the supply of currency during the week, and tbe silver receipts at New York continue only 12 per cent, of the total.
