NO OTHER STOPS.
No stops will bo made except at the points
above mentioned, and in no instance can
the time given to cities where stops are to be
made be extended. The fact that the jour
ney is timed to mee- fixed engagements will
prevent any exceptions to this determina
tion, but through the day in passing all
places of any considerable size the train
will be run at a very slow rate of speed.
,111 reception committees have l>eeii re
quested to meet the President at their re
spective cities instead of en route as has
been proposed in some instances. This is to
enable the party to get as much rest and
quiet as jwssiblo while traveling.
At the suggestion of the President much
proiipsed speech making at places to be vis
ited has been abandoned, and instead an im
portent feature in the programme at each
place-will be carriage rales about the cities
over previously announced routes, which
will gratify his desire to see
the towns and their populations and enable
all to see the President without the dis
comforts and dangers attending crowded
rooms and platforms. Formal acceptances
of invitations from these cities will now be
made, earlier notice having been impossible
on account of the uncertainty as to the
route and dates.

A LOOK AT THE THISTLE.
Her Model Not Very Different From
the Standard Cutter.
New York, Kept. 31.—The Scotch yacht
Thistle was docked this morning. Mr.
Hystop, measurer of the New York Yacht
Club, made out-boani and in board meas
urements of the Thistle. While the water
was being pumped out of the dock her
water litre, stem, boflrsprit, main
boom, gaff mainmast and topmast were
measured. From what could be seen of her
bottom there appeared to be a general
resemblance to the Volunteer with the ex
ception of the rounding of the side in the
Thistle. This does not extend so low or so
far aft as in the big white sloop. Then,
too, all talk of her model being so different
from the standard cutter was all nonsense.
She is a typical cutter. Although she is
not so foul as was thought, she is rough only
where the point is worn off in patches.
When the entire keel was revealed it was
seen that there was not a straight line in
her hull. Her bow made a sharp angle
to the midship section, and from there
to the stern jiost. There was also a slight
curve in the bottom of the keel The princi
pal shoulders of the yacht are amidship, or
nearly so, and it is in that place that the
model makes any pretense of beam. Capt.
Joe Ellswortk said, after looking very care
fully over the vessel, that there was not
enough boat there to beat the Volunteer.
Steward Nels Olsen, of the New York
Yacht Club, said she was more
like a big catboat. in build
than anything else. Critics, while admir
ing her bow and overhang, agreed that she
was not a boat to stand rough weather, but
they believe, as they have done all along,
that sis* will be a very fast boat in light

The water in the canals leading from this

entirely covered with water from
the crevasses in the embankment
of Rayou St. John, between Broad and
Galvez streets. These breaks are 40 feet
wide and several feet deep, and the water
is pouring through them like a mill race.
The House of the Good Shepherd, situated
on Bienville street, near Broad, can only be
reached by boat. The city authorities have
a large force at work, and hope to have the
breaks closed by morning. The track of
the Louisville and Nashville railroad is now
clear of water, and trains are running us

The Buckeye Parents Don’t Want
Blacks In the Schools.
Cincinnati. Sept. 21.—The operation of
the law off last winter which repealed tho
statute authorizing the establishment of
separate schools for colored pupils is pro
ducing friction in some places.
At Oxford, Ohio, the colored pupils nearly
all deserted their own school and applied for
admission to the white school. A public
meeting was held and the school board was
asked to order the colored pupils to their
own school. The hoard complied with the
request and the colored people propose to
apply for a mandamus.
At Yellow Springs the school board has
ordered the schools closed indefinitely, or

At Ripley, Ohio, suit in mandamus has
been entered to compel the school board to

PREVENTING A BIG PANIC
CLEVELAND TRYING TO RELIEVE
THE MONEY MARKET.
The Government Gives Notice that It
Stands Ready to Make Purchases
Daily of 4 1-2 and 4 Per Cent. Bonds
Unexpectedly—Small Offerings the
Washington, Sept 31.— The offerings of
bonds to-day to the Government aggregated
$1,370,000 at urices ranging from 107.90 to
110. The light offerings of bonds to-day
was a disagreeable surprise to the treasury
officials. Acting Secretary Thompson said
that the amount of bonds offered was
uot as large as he had expected, still the
prices asked were generally reasona
ble. Touching the future policy of the de
partment with reference to bond purchases,
Secretary Thompson said that it would be
improper to make any statement in ad
vance. If there should be a change in the
present policy it would be known only by
the action of the Treasury and not by
means of any preliminary statement of
declined to say.
For this reason he declined to say whether
it is the intention to extend the "system of
purchases to the 4 pet- cent, bonds or to ask
proposals for selling a lump sum of 10,000,-
000 or $15,000,000 4Li per cents, to the gov
ernment to supply "the requirements of the
sinking fund. These and all other plans
that had been suggested for the
relief of the money market
had, he said, been carefully
considered, but no decision had yet been
reached. When it is it will, as already
stated, be announced to the public only
through the action of the department. Be
fore and after to-day’s purchases the acting
secretary consulted with the President,
who is taking an active interest in the
The total of the purchases to-day is sl,-
065,300, at prices ranging from 107.90 to
THE BATEMAN CHARGE.
A Wall street paper called the Indicator
publishes a number of questions which it
calls upon Acting Secretary Thompson, of
the Treasury, to answer, implying that the
Secretary has some connection with A. E.
Bateman, of the New York firm of
Green & Bateman, which is prominent
ly associated with the bear campaign and
that the latter has quietly dictated the
purchase of bonds, etc. While the charge
is indirect, it is made in a covert way that
seems to mean a great deal Secretary
Thompson when spoken to by a Star re
porter on the subject, replied that he didn't
know Mr. Bateman, and liad never seen
him in his life that he was aware of.
CLEVELAND’S PERSONAL ATTENTION.
The President is personally directing the
financial operations of the Treasury Depart
ment. He is consulted at all times, of
course, when any important action is to be
taken, but just now, M the absence of Sec
retary Fairchild, tlie President is practically
the head of the Treasury Department, for
the present at least. That a bid of 199 to
day would have been certain of acceptance
is pretty well known, of course, to other
holders of 4!./. and had they/lesired money
they would probably have sent in their
bonds at the above prices, yet the offers ag
gregated only $1,370,000. This tends to
make the impression here that the agitation
in New York is artificial and .speculative.
A CONSERVATIVE POLICY.
The policy of the adminsitration will be
conservative. The fact is recognized that
at best any relief that it can grant will be
of the most temporary character. It really
can do nothing but buy bonds and discount
interest. It cannot loan money and it can
not make larger deposits than the banks
protect. (Congress, and Congress otdy, can
reduce the war taxes, tariff mid internal
revenue. But the President has no present
intention of calling an extra session of Con
gress, as it could not meet before
November and could accomplish little
in the additional time thus
gained. When it meets in December a tax
reduction bill will have been prepared
which will cut down the revenue from SBO,-
000,009 to $90,000,090 by repealing tobacco
taxes and reducing the tariff taxes. Let
Congress promptly pass that and the present
trouble predicted by President Cleveland,
Secretary Manning and Secretary Fairchild
for the last two years will he abolished.
A CALL FOR 4}<£S AND 48.
Washington, Sept. 31, 11 p. m.—Assist
ant Secretary Thompson and Treasurer
Hyatt held a long conference with t he Presi
dent to-night, remaining at the White
House until about 11 o’clock. At midnight

PROHIBITION IN TENNESSEE.
The Campaign the Liveliest In Ten
nessee Since the War.
Chattanooga, Sept. 31.—The prohibition
campaign, which is now at its height, is
arousing the greatest interest throughout
the State, and is producing greater excite
ment than any election since the war.
The State will vote on an amendment to tho
constitution prohibibiting the sale and man
ufacture of spirituous, malt or vinous
liquors. The election will occur on the Kept.
39. The Prohibitionists nro making
a vigorous and aggressive campaign, and
have enlisted the aid and active co-opera
tion of the leading Prohibitionists itt
America. Perfect organization is formed,
and speeches are delivered daily at nearly
every important town and city in the State.
The preachers have taken the stump and
temperance women are speaking from the
the w. C. T. u.
Tho Woman’s Christian Temperance
Union has actively joined in tho canvass,
and in every loading town ladies and chil
dren wear prohibition badges, and attend
all the meetings by thousands. The women
in the large cities are making a house-to
house canvass, and dispatches to the Times
indicate an intensity of feeling heretofore
unparalleled. Tho Antis are making a still
hunt. A few speeches are being delivered,
but hard personal work is being done. Poli
ticians are beginning to participate, but are
nearly equally divided on tho subject. Some
of the leading Democrats have just taken
the stump in opposition to the amendment.
HOW THE PRESS STANDS.
Of the daily press, four of the leading
newspatiers in the State are non-commital,
two are pronounced for the amendment,
and one is aggressively opposed to it. A
majority of the weekly papers oppose it.
The negroes seem to he concentrating in
the opposition, but the Prohibitionists are
now claiming one-third of the col
ored vote. Opinions vary on
the result, but politicians predict the
defeat of the measure. In some of the largo
cities women and children will be at the
polls. Large placards hearing the words
“God bloss our homes,” “Save the mothers,
wives and children,” etc., will tie conspicu
ously displayed on election day at all tho
leading voting precincts in the State.

ONSLAUGHT OF THE POLICE.
Mr. Dillon deposed that the police entered
the crowd without giving warning. He saw
them pressed back, and shouted: “le>t these
men alone.” The meeting then proceeded
quietly until a second attack was made by
the police. He followed the retreating con
stables to their barracks and found a few
persons outside the buildings. He failed
to induce the inspector to withdraw tho
police. That officer, however, withdrew
his men subsequently. Magistrate Beagrave
arrived simultaneously with the military,
and to Mr. Dillon’s request not to march
troops through the crowded streets, turned
hack and muttered something like “I am
not here to answer the questions of every
d— jackanapes.” The inquest was ad
journed until Tuesday.

at the meeting of the National League in Lim

Mr. Kilbride, the gentleman who aecom

Galway, Sept. 21. — I The gunboat O'Rell
while conveying to Bally vatighn to-day the
prisoners concerned in killing Constable
vYhelehan, grounded two miles from shore.
The accident caused great confusion. The
prisoners, heavily ironed, were placed in
boats with difficulty and rowed ashore,
watched by ad utble guard. The
demeanor of several of the prisoners
showed that, they would risk their lives
outlie merest chance to escape. At the in
quiry to-day, the widow Sexton, mother of
the farmer whose house was attacked by the
prisoners, stated that after the han or I lie
league had been placed upon the family
they could not get; food or other neces

TURKEY AND BULGARIA.
The Sultan Not Anxious to Join In

Constantinople, Sept. 31. It is officially
stated that the Sultan has not approved the
Turkish Ministerial Council'll proposal to
the powers that a general selected
by Russia and Turkey jointly be
sent to Bulgarin with power to
restore order in that country in accordance
with the terms of the treaty of Berlin. The
report that Baron Rhine, the Italian ambus
sador at Constantinople, Imd counseled the
Sultan to refuse to allow Russia to occupy
Bulgaria for the reason thut Austria would
then occupy Salomon is ascertained to he
baseless. Baron Blanc has assured the
Sultan that there is complete cordiality ex
isting between Austria and Italy.
BAVARIA AND BRANDY.
The Tax Bill Discussed and Passed by
Berlin, Sept. 81.—The Bavarian Diet to
day discussed the brandy tax bill. The
Minister of Finance declared that the gov
ernment held itself responsible to the coun
try for waiving the reserved rights of
Bavaria relating to the taxation of brandy.
Such action required the sanction of
the Diet, but the putting of the
bill to ft vote involved no necessity for a
formal demand to modify the constitution.
This dispensing with that formality in the
present instance would create no precedent
for its omission hereafter under different
circumstances. The bill was finally passed
by a vote of 13!i to 18.
WHEAT IN ENGLAND.

at York, said the present low prices of
wheat wero ruinous to the farmers. Asa
politician he had not u grain of comfort to
offer them The British fanner growing
wheat, he said, did not seem to know when
ho was beaten. Lord Churchill said
he foresaw nothing that was likely to cause
a rise in the price of wheat sutllcient to af
ford a protlt to the grower. Foreign im
ports were groat, not from America only,
t tit from other countries. The farmers of
England should realise thoroughly that
India is a tremendous granary, and will con
tinue to pour into tho English market in
creasing quantities of wheat. This radical
change in tho condition of farming should
prepare all persons interested in agriculture
to adapt themselves to the changes.

of the Amnesty Association had received
actual returns of. Of this number about

mittee to circulate the petition. At pres* it
blanks und circulars are being sent to Hunt
prominent iu labor organizations. The
committee has written out another appeal
to go at the head of the petition blanks.
It is more voluminous than the first one,
and caters to the passions of those who, even
in the jH'tition for clemency, cannot foi-ego
expressions of abuse against the judicial
procedure, Ivy which the Anarchists were
convicted. This |ietition was drawn up as
an experiment, and will be submitted to the
Amnesty Association at its meet
ings 10-night. A member of the
committee said yesierday: “As far as tlia
indignation at the verdict is concerned, I
think myself, that, the verdict was a burn

tirely out of place to put anything ol' than

in the matter entirely.”
PARSONS FURNISHES A STATEMENT,
A. R Parsons, the condemned Anarchist,
sent for a reporter to-<iay and gave out for
publication a long document addressed t/>
“The American People," and made a special
request that it lie published without altera
tion. He quotes at length the evidence nmi
rulings of the Supreme Court;
says that the sjieeches credited to
him in the trial were garbled extract* by
excited and imaginative newspajier t
|H>rters; that his Hayinarket speech did not
excite the riot, and that there was no con
nection between his speeches and the death
of (Ullcer Began. He says the evidence did
not siiow him guilty, but proved his inno
cence, and that he has been convicted as on
Anarchist and not as a murderer.
He came and gave himself up for a fair
trial, and appeals to the American peopla
to avert the awful crime of judicial mur
der. Lovers of justice are engaged in an
effort to thwart tho consummation of judi

FURTHER APPEALS DISAPPROVED.
“Neither do I approve of any fur

upiieal of a wage slave to his capitalistic

again saying that he will not accept com

the language of Patrick Henry: “Give me
