THE PETERS FAILURE. Attachments Levied Against the Defunct Firm. Chicago. Oct. 17.-The Union National bank began an attachment suit to-dav against the Peters Salt and Lumber company, of Manistee, Michigan which failed yesterday. The attachments were levied on surplus securities held by the Commercial National bank and American Exchange National banks of this city. The Union National claims to be amply secured on the paper of the hrm which it holds. The Commercial and American Exchange National both held considerable of Peters' paper but their officers say they ar* secured by collateral good for the amounts several times over. The Continental National bank holds $25,000 of the failed firm’s paper. Its officers say it is perfectly secured by endorsements by solvent firms. In addition to this there are large quantities of Peters’ paper afloat in private hands in thiscity. It is announced that Peters hat sold his interest in Higbee & Peters’ Lumber company to Pardee, Cook A Co. Private advices received here to-day from Manistee are to the effect that the Manistee bank and the Butlers A Peters Salt company will pull out all right. Two or three public institutions will find themselves very directly interested in Hie failure of R. G. Peters. Several years ago it was announced that Peters had given $50,000 each to Oberlin college, Olivet college and the Congregational Theological seminary at Chicago. Oberlin has since built a large and elegant, building and christened it “Peters Hall.” It now turns out that these gifts are only on paper, Peters having given his notes for the sums named. There was a run on the Manistee National bank this morning, which was promptly met. The institution was prepared for the emergency and is amply able to meet the run without going outside of its own resources. The excitement here has subsided. Peters, this afternoon, in speaking of the condition of the various firms in which he is interested, said the only ones likely to be seriously affected are Peters A Morrison, of Menominee; Arthur Meigs & Co., lumber and real estate, and Peters & Dunham, of Grand Rapids, and one or two southern firms. These are likely to go under. WILL NOT FEDERATE. The International Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers’ Session Continues. PiTTSHi'KG, Oct. IT.—The International Brotherhood of Loeomative Engineers resumed their session this morning. The meeting was held with closed doors.

In less than five minutes after the alarm was sent in over ten thousand people assembled around the church. The fire was quickly extinguished, only a small damage being done. It will not exceed $100. A patrol wagon arrived and the police, with the help of the lire department, began to restore order. At first they met with very little success. It seemed as if everybody within a mile around was at the place, and the crowds were so dense that a passage could only be made with the greatest of effort.

He Meets Death On the Gallows at Morris, Illinois, Without a Tremor. Morris, 111., Oct. 17.—James Maxwell was hanged at forty-seven minutes past ten this morning for the murder of Charles Decker on .lune last. He was the coolest man in the place. Last night when the sheriff showed some signs of trepidation at the task before him, Maxwell said:    “Brace up, old man, you are nouch more terrified about this thing than I am. He slept well and ate a hearty breakfast with apparent relish this morning. His spiritual advisers received a severe shock this morning when they went in to administer the last words of consolation to him. An enterprising reporter had been before him. He had assumed the guise of a minister with a view of getting an interview, but he failed, for when the newspaper representative began to question him as to his spiritual welfare, Maxwell threw off the religious mask which he had hitherto worn and drove his visitor from him with a string of curses of the most sulphurous sort. When the sheriff began to read the death warrant in a trembling voice, Maxwell interrupted with, “Stop that gab, Scroeder. and let us get through with this thing as soon as possible!” His wish was complied with and he was at once conducted to the gallows. A brief prayer was offered, the prisoner pinioned and the noose adjusted. The sheriff asked him if he had anything to say. His reply was the complaint that the sheriff had put a window in a shanty, in which the execution took place so that the crowd outside could see him. The sheriff then cut the cord and the body fell. In six minutes Maxwell was pronounced dead. Just before leaving his cell Maxwell handed the sheriff a big knife, telling him that he might have killed himself half a dozen times had he wanted to. One of Heuuessy’s Assassins Shot. New Orleans, Oct. 17.—Tom Duffy, cousin of the prize fighter, who has been in the habit of going to a parish prison to see a friend incarcerated there for misdemeanor, went there to-day and asked to see Antoiva Scaffide, one of the assassins of Chief of Police Hennessy, ostensibly for the purpose of identifying bim.

THET HATE BISMARCK. German Socialists Everywhere Hiss His Name. Emperor William’s Position—A Delegate Falls Dead at Halle While Participating in an Exciting Debate-Foreign News. London, Oct. 17.—Emperor William evinces deep interest in the socialist congress at Halie, and is reported to have said that the socialists must prove themselves worthy of liberty or they would again be deprived of it. Prince Bismarck, ou the other hand, is sasd to have declared that the empire had admitted an enemy within its borders more dangerous than the French. The name of Bismarck is everywhere hissed by the socialists. The socialist workmen’s organization at Hamburg has issued a manifesto urging their comrades throughout Germany to support the emperor’s programme of social reforms. Fell to the Floor Dead. London, Oct. 17.—At its session today the socialist congress discussed at length means for improving the position of the socialist press. The debate was acrimonious and exciting, and at times perfect pandemonium prevailed. Herr \ Baumgarten, one of the delegates from Hamburg, in the midst of an impassioned harangue, during which he became greatly excited, fell to the floor dead. Heart disease is supposed to have been the cause. His sudden taking off caused a profound sensation and for a time cast a gloom over file assemblage. It has been determined by the Hamburg group of workmen who are followers of Ferdinand LaSalle to send forth a manifesto to the German workmen urging them to co-operate in the carrying out of the government’s social policy. A resolution was adopted at a meeting of Berlin socialists last night demanding that the Halle socialist congress treat the members of the Berlin opposition with respect and protesting against their being called a clique. denies the report.

New York, Oct. IT.—Never before in the memory of the oldest mariner along the water front have the East and North rivers been so dangerous and boisterous. At nine o’clock this morning, when the tide was about at its heighth, the river about the battery and bay as far as the eye could see was as fierce and choppy as any stormy sea ever seen along the coast. The wind was blowing forty miles an hour from the north-northwest. Only the largest and staunchest vessels ventured out. Later the wind moderated. At Patterson, Scott Nixon, a brakeman on the Lackawanna railroad, while on    the roof    of    a freight    car, passing down Spurnear Getty avenue, was carried off by the wind and seriously injured. The gale in the bay, aided by a strong ebb tide, caused a collision this afternoon    between    the    big tug    boat James A.    Garfield    and    the freight    boat Amos C.    Barstow,    of    the Stonington Steamship company. The Garfield went to the bottom. John Steel and John Lyons were drowned, while seven other men on the tug were rescued by the Barstow’s crew and crews of other tugs. Captain Henderson, of the Garfield, had an arm and jaw broken. Advices received at Boston from various points along the New England coast report the most violent gale of the season raging. Several vessels are in precarious positions and considerable loss to shipping is feared. A Steamer sUipwrecked.

Chicago, Oct. 17.—There is to be a general conference of the managers of the Granger and southwestern railroads. This is the result of Tuesday's meeting called here by Chairman Walker, of the old Interstate Railway association—popularly known as “The Gentlemen’s Agreement.” All of the important roads out west are to be invited to have representatives at this conference, and there are assurances that most of them will respond. It is stated here that one of the most enthusiastic supporters of this new move is Mr. Jay Gould. The Atchison people, too, are known to be very greatly in favor of it. Much is hoped for as a result. One railway president who attended to-day’s meeting said to the Jon mal of Finance correspondent:    “There    is no question about the certainty of success in our present purposes. We have in our favor factors never before enlisted. And you can depend upon it that the work now undertaken is going to be pushed vigorously and intelligently. Rates will be put up and they will be kept up. There is going to be less nonsense than there has been. Incompetent and irresponsible subordinates will be deprived of their demoralization powers. The time rife for a change, and we all feel it.” Chairman Walker is himself in good spirits. Important results of great value, he says. will speedily follow the conference which is to be called. The western roads will get together, he believes, right away and they will be run hereafter to make money for their owners. On all sides there is a uniform expression among railway managers of a belief that finally plans have been determined upon which will amount to something in bringing about better times for the interested roads. The proposed action, said one manager to-night, is worth a dividend on any company's entire capital stock.__ A Decision by Judge Ktoneman. Cedar Rapids, IU., Oct. IT.—Judge Stoneman, of the superior court, to-day decided that the state prohibitory law was null and void so far as the sale of original packages was concerned. The decision was in a case growing out of the seizure of beer brought from St. Louis, to be sold by the brewery agent last June. The beer was seized on complaint of Rev. Mr. Abrams. The brewing company asked for an injunction against Abrams and also sought to replevin the goods already seized. The defendant demurred that the writ of replevin would not do to recover beer in Iowa. Judge Stoneman holds that the Wilson bill is not retrospective in its operation: that the Iowa law regarding the sale of liquors in original packages is null and void. He grants perpetual injunction to restrain Abrams from further interfering with the business of plaintiff. A prominent physician and old army surgeon in eastern Iowa was called away from home for a few days; during his absence one of the children contracted a severe cold and his wife bought a bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy for it. They were so much pleased with the remedy that they afterwards used several bottles at various times. He said, from his experience with it, he regarded it as the most reliable preparation in use for colds, and that it came the nearest being a specific of any medicine he had ever seen. Declines to Receive the alist*. Escaped Nation- ELEOTION BBT N0TE8 VOD. Novel Salt Decided at Independence. Iowa. Independence, Oct. IT.—A novel suit and of interest to betters on elections has just been decided in the district court. At the general election in 1888 Charles Combs put up a span of mules against a $225 note, given by James R. Patten, on Cleveland’s election. The note was made out on the regulation blank, payable when Cleveland was elected, with interest at eight per cent. At the expiration of a year Combs sued for the interest. The case was continued until this term, when the court held that the case was an election bet and declared the note null and void. THE RIVER LAND CASE. Probability that They Will Dra* Atonic for Five Veers. Ft. Dodge, Oct. 17.—Attorney General Stone, who has charge of the river land ease for the settlers, U making every effort possible to have the appealed case advanced on the United States supreme docket and has brought to assistance, the aid and influence of a number of congressmen from this aud other states who have been interested in the matter, but as yet he has received no positive assurance of the advancement of the case. A* the docket now stands it will probably take five years to reach if it comes up in regular order and it is Stone’s desire to have it advanced so as to have the case taken up and decided in the course of a year. The task he has undertaken is one that is hardly ever successful and in this case it is hard to tell what the result will be. GRAND CHAPTER P. E. 0.

One or two, according to your cholee. Women or wine you’ll have to undergo; Both are necessary to our joys.' And which to choose I really hardly know; But lf I had to give a casting voil e. For both sides I could many reasons show. And then decide without great wrong either, That it is much lK*tter to have Itoth than neither. Thales and Pythagoras learned in the I sanctuaries of Egypt that the earth revolved around the sun. but did not attempt to make this information known, for by so doing, they would have had to reveal one of the secrets of the Temple of the double law of attraction aud radiation. No one who attended the reception of the P. E. O.’s last night could possibly believe there ever existed a class of people so densely ignorant as to have no conception of the existence of this compound of laws. Attraction and radiation:    Attraction    for    the good. the beautiful and the true, and oceans of intellectual radiation from each of them. Crowds of bewitching loveliness, throngs of bewildering beauties, and brilliant meteoric sparks from bright eyes—one is lost in the dazzling splendor of the occasion. The rustle of silks behind one, leaving a delicate odor of rare exotics. the languid waving of the jeweled fan at the side, and the softly whispered compliments of a neighbor, served to stimulate the finer sensibilities of the multitude, and the absence of the stiff formality, usually present at such times, was truly refreshing. Under the supervision of Mrs. VV. B. Southwell and the Misses Bock, the rooms of\he Commercial club were gay with resplendant banners, drapes, fragrant flowers and shrubs, while the west parlor, profusely decorated, echoed the sweet refrain of the Boat club orchestra.

Knthutiwsfir Gremlins; Atrnnlrd Colonel Henderson I.*Follette’* Speech [< orrt'spor.denee oi The Hawk-Eye.l Man*hf*:kk. Iowa, Oct. 17.—After several day* of cloudy, rainy weather, yesterday dawned bright and clear and gave ti* a perfect day. At an early hour the city was decorated with flags and bunting. The Henderson club of nearly two hundred went to the train at nine o'clock to welcome the speaker* of the day. The Henderson clubs of Earlville and Hopkinton led by the Unmet band of Hopkinton joined th** rank* and escorted the speaker* to the hotel. Our gallant Colonel Henderson then held a reception when several hundred pressed forward to grasp him by the hand and wish him success and God * *p< d in hi* brave, manly and impartial cour*e which he has per-sued for the benefit of all persons iii this district regardless of party. At two o'clo* k ’ lie mass of people to the number of several thousands assembled at the Central opera house when the Wisconsin orator R. M LaFoilette held them for more than two hours with unabated interest. He -poke principally regarding the McKinley tariff bill. Having been a member of the committee in maturing this measure lie was perfectly at home in discussing it. and explain^ and defended the action of ’he committee in fixing a high tariff on many of the article* of production and manufacture which are of vital interest to the agricultural districts of our nation. His logic was simple and easily understood. His arguments were convincing and unanswerable. Although a man “small of stature,” mentally he is a giant. His strong arguments brought forth expression* of approval by frequent a[»-plause. Truly may Wisconsin be proud of her son aud hi* district should return him to congress by a largely increased majority. After some excellent music by the glee club, our representative, of whom this district feels proud to honor and who will again be sent back to Washington by an inerea*ed majority, occupied only a few minutes when the people di*per*ed and assembled again in the evening and listened to the conclusion of Col. Henderson’s strong oratorical and convincing arguments. He shows by his good re-, port that he is a faithful, conscientious servant of the people. Hon. A. J. Hopkins, of Illinois, then followed with strong, convincing arguments which ought to satisfy a “wayfaring man though a fool” that the republican party is on the right track and that the measures it advocates are for tie best interest of the nation. The record of the past twenty-live years ought to decide all who would he loyal citizens which is the safest party to trust. Altogether this day ba* been a grand rally of loyal citizens and they go home feeling it ha* done them good to be here. Our hest report from here will be on November 4th.
