Chicago, Sept. 22.—The world’s fair question has been settled by to-day's action. In the morning the S nth Bark commissioners agreed to add Washington Bark to the portions of the South Bark > \ st mu already offered to t he commission. I hi* was in accordance wiih the resolution adopted by Hie national commission last Saturday. At this afternoon's session of the national commission the amended site proposition was presented and unanimously accepted. The sire thus provided for includes Washington and Jackson Darks, the midway piaisancc connecting them, and the Lake Front park, iii all about OIH* thousand acres. In a sense the chosen site is one great unit comprising as it docs the entire South Bark system of Chic ago, the finest of aux in the city. The onHuisqism with which tile tender was received by the national commission showed in marked contrast with tin* reception of the previous propositions. By a resolution adopted early in the day the national commission had formally pledged itself to regard t|,,> offer of such a site as “the final settlement, of all questions relating to site" and when the park commissioners brumprIy responded aud the exact location of the big exposition was at last tinnily fixed there was an outburst of cheers. Stepping from the door* of the city railroad depots, hotels and business houses, the visitors to the world's fair will. as it were. enter directly Hie vestibule of the exposition on the Lake Front. This "Lake Front" is a strip of park comprising sixty acres, bordering the shore of Lake Michigan. Leading from it the finest boulevard of the city gee-directly to Washington Bark and connecting with the latter is the widway Beisance, wha h ends in Jackson Bark. Like the Lake Front one sjd,> of Jackson is washed by the waves of Lake Michigan. London. Sept. 22.—The two kaisers have astonished Europe bv suddenly separating, and Francis .Joseph has returned t,o \ ienna. This is a break up of the program which had been announced for them and indicates something unusual. Emperor William was to have gone \vitll Francis Joseph to Deni it* the tyro! and thence the two were to proceed on a hunting i rip in the Styrian mountains. Instead, each now returns home and it, is conjectured that some sudden change in the situation must be a* the bottom of it. Naturally suspicion points to Russia as sap;,lying the cause of this disarrangement of plans which had been matured for months before. The news os serious fighting which conies from Armenia is considered as indicating the near approach of Russian intervention in that afflicted province. Tho fact that forty lives were lost and that site Turks were tile chief sufferers indicates I he possession of Russian weapons by the Armenians, and this serious loss of life i-sure to provoke fierce reprisals by the Turks aud Kurds which will at last give Russia a, good pretext for pushing troop-across the frontier. BismarekVfnrgan. a few days ago published an article criticising the manner in which the government dealt with the rumors concerning its attitude toward slavery in east Africa. The North (termini Gazette, the government organ, replying to tin1 article, says that the government declines to be dictated to by the Xarhrlcht.cn and justifies tho meeting of such "canards at times, by straight-forward denial instead of by diplomatic shuffling. The Gazette, in the course of its article, makes an incidental attack upon the persons who inspired the criticism. A SAD SUNDAY PICNIC. Terrible Collision Between Two Suburban Trains in Chicago.

London. Sept. 22. — Armenians in England are greatly pleased tit the capture of Moussa Bey and the prospect of Iii* being sent, in exile to Mecca, where In can no longer bribe and cajole to their disadvantage. Leading Armenians in London -ay they do not de-ire the execution of Moussa, as his death would lie the signal fora rising of the Kurds and a massacre of Christians. He is a much more important personage than is generally supported. Nominally lie is a petty Turkish official, but really he is the chief of the Kurd* in Armenia. His office was conferred upon him in the vain hope that he might be restrained by it. He made no pretense of performing any of the duties attached to it, hut -pent his time raiding elsewhere. He is, in short, a robber chief and not merely a corrupt official. A* the Kurds are very numerous in Armenia the extent of his power eau hardly be exaggerated. Moussa Bey i- a young an i good-looking man, very pleasant and courteous to taik to. He i> a very strict Mohammedan.

They were conveyed to the Lambeth police station, where both wert; arraigned and bound over in two thousand pounds to appear before court to-morrow. Iii th<* court, tin; police inspector justifying the arrests, said the match was to bt* a genuine prize-fight, He produced a copy of the articles and said the gloves, as exhibited iii the windows of the sporting paper, wore smaller than the ordinary gloves and were thin around tin* lcnucles. 'Tin* secretary of tin* Ormonde club said the gloves were ordinary boxing gloves: the contest to be strictly in accordance with the Queensborry rule anti no breach of law was intended. IU added that tin* police had been incited to make the arrests by jealous enemies of tile flub. The inspector denied that the police had been incited. The magistrate directed the police to produce the glove-before finally deciding as to the illegality of Hit* fight. He added if, in the meantime, tht* prisoners should venture to proceed with tIn* light hi* would deal with them severely, 'l ilt* suddenness of the arrests prevented rile defense from obtaining council. To-morrow the legal question will be argued. At a meeting ot the Ormonde club tonight it was decided that if an adverse decision wa- rendered the match would he decided on the continent. Many rumors are being circulated about the fight. Bill Madden, McAuliffe’* trainer, claims that Slavin is afraid of the American aud believes he did not want to meet him. A well known American -ay- t hi* arrest of McAuliffe is due to the fact that Slavin bas trained off. and tho-** who backed him had the American arrested to save their money.

New York, Sept. 22.—Yesterday was an important day to tin* Brotherhood of liOeomotive Engine! rs. Grand Chief Engineer P. M. Arthur was in town, and was present and addressed the grand union meeting. The so-called grand union meeting i- in the nature of a national convention of the whole order, and the brotherhood divisions were represented from Maine to California md Canada to Panama. The meeting was -<- ret and held with closed doors, -o that none but those who were initiated were allowed admittance. There were Loon brotherhood men present at th-* morning session, and by actual count I,.'too at the afternoon session. Chief Arthur was accorded a most enthusiastic reception. Charles Hall of division I 15 of New York city presided. The meeting put into the form of a resolution it* views of Grand Chief Arthur’- attitude in relation to the late strike of the employes of the New York Central railroad, which resolution was adopted unanimously. The resolution is as follows: ResohV'rt, That it is the sentiment of this union meeting that we approve tin- instruction given by our grand chi a engineer ;*> th* engineers during th*.* bite trouble, and we have full confidence in his integrity. Weals*) honor the engineers->n th** N w York Gent rat railroad in following tie* instruction given bv our grand chief engineer and in keeping bo close to Hie laws and rules of our brotherhood. A significant feature of the meeting also was the submission of a scheme for federation of railway employe* presented by J. G. Babcock. What was the nature of tile proposition or what was done with it could not be ascertained. The Irish Arrest*. London. Sept. 22.—London, and in fact all England, i- still busy discussing Chief Secretary Balfour's d'-ciaratiou of war on the Iri-h league. The news which conies from Ireland shows t ii a t from end to end of the island the gauge of battle fins been taken up with characteristic alacrity. The tir*t of a series of public meetings was held at Swinford. County Mayo, yesterday, aud. Sn spite of a drenching downpour of rain, an immense concourse of people listened to John Dillon denounce Balfour’s action and repeat tin* language for which he had beet! arrested. An imposing force of soldiers and constabulary ready at a moment’s notice to disperse the crowd at the point of the bayonet failed to overa we the crowd. The few weak-kneed bishops and priests who had obeyed the injunction from Rome and commenced to oppose tin* plans of the league have been completely cowed, and Archdeacon < ant-well, of Tipperary, has actually apologized tor his attack. The general v erdict is that the league has bc*n given a new and vigorous lease of life. John Morley, the eminent liberal, will visit Mr. Gladstone at Hawarden to consult with iiiin on the changed aspect of tin* Irish situation. Mr. Morley will then return to Ireland to study the condition of the people. A number of mass meetings were held yesterday in the provinces —chiefly at Liverpool and Glasgow—to protest against the arrest of the Irish leaders. Fatal Ending of a Long-Standing Family Feud. Cud ado. Sept. 22.—To-night a fatal street affray between two brothers-m-law ended a remarkable contest for the possession of a fortune of >100,000. Alfred Richner several years ago was tIii* husband of a noted brothel keeper. Notwithstanding this and his unsavory record Richner succeeded in clandestinely working himself into tile good grace-of the daughter of a vvealthy*llour?ainl feed dealt r named Kessler. Upon Kessler’s death, the daughter, who seems to have been somewhat simple-minded, disclosed her attachment for Richner. The instant opposition of tin family to any recognition of that worthy resulted iti the prompt elopement of the couple to Montreal. Richner later went through the form of obtaining a divorce from the brothel keeper and having hi- marriage with Miss Kessler legalized. Then he returned to Chicago and a feud was soon engendered between Richner and bine w wife'* brother. The latter accused Richner of being actuated solely with a de-ire to lay his hands on the fortune of his sister. Legal struggles and personal encounters between Richner and young Kessler have been frequent. Recently it is alleged, Richner failing to I get hold of the fortune has threatened ti* ; kill every member of the family to-night. he met young Kessler on State street and attacked him with ti cane. Kessler drew I a revolver and tired several shots into ('mrI!!.. Sept. 22.—A collision between a Burlington suburban 'rain at an Illinois ( entral excursion train and Eighteen ii * rec: anil Kedgie avenue last night resulted in the death of five people and tin* serious injury of a dozen others, three of whom will probably die. Tfie dead are:    Lilly    Diener, aged 215: Mart ha Diener, aged iii: Otto Si fmloeff. aged IT. Two men. identity unknown. The fatally hurt are:    Lena    Riswig, aged IT; Minnie Bilgrim, aged Lu Eddie Tor pc, aged Hi. Iii addition to these were the following:    Tiffin    Burke, left shoulder broken: Henry Lutz, leg fra Hired: C. ii. Niemann, right leg broken and left arm crushed: Charles Melrose, arm broken. A number of others received cut,*- and bruises, bul were able to go home without assistance. 1 During the day the Illinois Central road run an excursion to the end of i‘-line, the Orphan Asylum, at Addison. Illinois, and it was thi- train which. while blocked on tie* outskirts of tin city and waiting to be relea-ed, wa-crashed into bv the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy suburban. Engineer Dickson, of 11n* Burlington train, claims that the rear red lights of tin; Illinois Central train were burning - > dimly a- to afford birn no warning of their presence. Other reports have D that tin* Burlington train was behind time aud was running at a rockies- rate. Engineer Dickson -ays t hat as quickly a* possible he reversed his engine ami applied the air-brakes, but the momentum of the heavy train was too great, aud they struck the ex-cur-'On train with great violence. The rear ear was lifted from the track and forced through tin* next ear ahead, which in turn was forced Into the third car from the rear.' Ile* < hica&ro. Burlington and Quincy engine lost her pi lot. head-' gilt and smoke—tick, and ln*r front head was stove in. while Jut tender was forced up against the boiler-head. Neither Engineer Dickson nor iii- fireman was injured. They jumped off when it appeared inevitable .that the train could not be stopped. Instantly there was the wildest confusion. The excursion train consisted of fifteen ear-, every -on** lilied with people. Idle express train i.ot.-i-ted of an engine, baggage car and six passenger coaches, with aboil loo people on board. The uninjured on the excursion and a1! the people of the ex pre-- train, none of whom were injured, made a wiid'break f>*r the doors and alighted on either -cie of tile two trains. Many frightened passengers ran from the scene of the collision, apparently under tin* impression ihat their only safety lay in flight. Many went limping off, indicating that possibly many more were in lured than those mentioned above. The greater majority, however, immediately gathered around the wreck and gave their assistance to those pinioned beneath the telescoped cars and those whose injuries were so serious that they could not help themselves.

We ar** twenty-eight miles from Rapid City, the nearest railroad point. “The richness of these mines is simply wonderful, and one who has not boon there can hardly lie bove it. but I state a fact when I tell you that there is enough tin on the dumps and in sight now to supply the Unit - J States for five years.
