RaVDFCreG CONGO'S ntEIDOM. SOU another king's tronblea must be of Leopold of Belgium. His are of a PTrrn-inl nature, for in his for glory, which comes of founding a new state, he has neglected to provide for the Income necessary to the proper tnaintenaee of such a luxury. The Congo Free State will be a nourishing nation dome day, no doubt, but at present it fur- nishes hardly enough revenue to satisfy he neerli. or perhaps we should say wants, at tbe patriots who consent, for a consid- ratipa, to run it. As a remedy for this tradition of affairs, it is proposed to In a se strike the word "Free" out of the na- tion's title. In other words to abolish free- dom of trade U the Congo region. The proposal comes from Lambremont to the conference, and if favorably acted jpon. a duty of 10 per cent, will be levied ipon all merchandise, the proceeds to be ised in recouping Leopold's private fort- une, which is said to have been consider- ably trenched upon in the bolstering up f this pet enterprise of the Belgian mon- ireb. What will become of the tariff af- er the king's advances have been made iood is not stated: but the general impres- ion is that it will be kept up for the brae- It of the infant industries that may be re- jed upon to spring up along the Congo. King Leopold, by the way, arrived in xmdon yesterday, to take part to-day in elaborate ceremonies attendant upon he unveiling at Windsor of the jubilee .ue of tbe late Prince Consort. Tbe tarty of guests will be moderately large. >ut very distinguished, only the royalty sad nobility with very few exceptions, belttg honored by invitations. TRAMS trsioys PBOSPEBOUS. The Socialist speakers at the Hyde Park iemonstration devoted a great deal of argument to show that trades unions In the country an slowly declining in power, and that large numbers of unionists are oining tbe Social Democrats as tbe most effective means of obtaining the eight- ooor day and other reforms. Inquiry among trades union leaders leaves little doubt that the Socialists spoke of that which Uwj would like to see occur rather Chan of what haa happened. Tbe trades onions were never so prosperous as now, and accessions to their ranks have been more numerous In tbe past twelve months Lhan during any previous corresponding wriod. The Amalgamated Society of Engineers, for instance, formed twenty- jnenew branches and enrolled new last year, total mem- bership being now Tbe total receipts were and the so- ciety has now in hand the sum of Tbe London Society of Compositors, a comparatively small body, enrolled TOO new members last year, and added to tbe reserve fund, which now stands at The only trades union in which the Socialists have made any progress Is the Dock Laborers' union, and success there is due chiefly to dissatis- faction among the men, caused by the de- sertion of 490 wharf laborers whom the union had incited to strike and then threw over because tbe struggle was costing too much. A PEXSIST TO THE QUICK. The rain which marred the drawing room Saturday also brought to the queen return of the rheumatism which she went abroad last month to cure, but she was able to receive a deputation from tbe omcers, who presented her with a superb memorial of her jubilee in tbe name of the British army and navy. The memorial takes the form of an elaborate and beauti- ful centrepiece of hammered silver forty inches high. The materials were gathered from all parts of the queen's dominions, and the allegorical design illustrates the power and greatness of the empire. AS IXTKEZST1NO SAUL Next month the sale of the interesting original manuscripts of Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins, with some autograph programmes of private theatricals in which both took part, will begin here. Collins is most largely represented. Among his work to be soM is the entire original manu- script of The Woman in "The "No "Armadale'' and a half dosen other of his most popular romances, with the complete unpublished manuscript of a three-act play, "The Frozen with additions" and correc- tions by Dickens. The play bills are by Dickens. Among them is the bill of an amateur performance at St. James' thea- tre of "Every Man in His and "A Good Night's Rest" on Saturday, Nov. 15, The names on the bill written in Dickens' band include those of Mark Lemon, Douglas Jerrold and 'John Leech. Another is the bill of a performance at liverpool in 1853 of Lytton's "Not so Bad m we and Dickens' "Mr. Nightin- gale's Diary." Tbe others are equally in- tereaaing, and the sale also includes manu- scripts of two of Dickens' poems. A TOOLISa AMERICAN. Andrew Deaa of Kansas City is a young a.nrra.a-jji who came over here in January wftk a limited amount of money, spent his substance in riotous living and terminated his earthly career in the Thames. Dean, who said he was a speculator ia real es- tate, had about in money and a draft on the Bank of Scotland, issued in Mon- treal, for 1388. On his arrival be went to Irre oo Upper George street with an Kng- rivar, where it had evidently beam 1st niauy oajc. i cur-oner's returned a verdict of sakide while of unsound mind, and the body buried in the church- yard at Herndon at the expense of the par- is TUX ISTIBTST Or AUTHORS. Walter Besant has started a genome) crusade against the publisher on behalf at the author. This week there will be issued under Us editorship tbe first number of magazine called The Author. In the lead- ing editorial Mr. Besant explains that the new magarine is "founded to be the organ of literary men aad women of an the one paper which will fully review, discuss and ventilate all questions con- nected with the profession of literature hi all its branches. It will be the medium by which tbe Society of Authors will la- form Its members generally of their doings, and it will become tbe public record of transactions conducted ia the Interest of literature, which have hitherto been secret and hidden for want of such an organ. Tbe chief aims of the society, which have been advanced again again, are; First, to promote the recogni- tion of the fact, hitherto most imperfectly understood, that literary property is as real a thing as property in every other kind of business; that it should be safe- guarded in the same manner and regarded with the same jealousy." The cheerful cynic, George Francis Train, embarked safely on the Etruria for New fork yesterday. The papers devote a good deal of space to Mr. Train, but seem quite puzzled as to his proper whether among tbe geniuses or the cranks of America, The farmer rating is Insisted upon by some writers who remember him ss tbe brilliant inventer and orator of days gone by, and who remind us that are. indebted to hi to for our tram ear sys- tem: while less favorable comment is made by others who cannot convince themselves that tbe genial philosopher's of Anarchistic sentiments should be con- doned. All agree, at least, that in bis present enterprise be is likely to succeed in beating all previous records. Interested in the Silver Debate. LOSDOK, May At a banquet to be given Wednesday by advocates of M-met- alism Mr. Henry Chaplin, M. C., presi- dent of tbe board of agriculture, will make a speech expressing the strong Interest taken by the royal currency commission in the action of tbe American congress upon the silver question. Seven Hundred Men an Strike. HAMBURG, May hundred men employed at the Ham burg-American docks hen have gone on strike. A COWARDLY MOB. They Select a Widow to Eject tram a Piece of Disputed Land. PITTSBURG, May special to The Times from Wheeling says: At Mannington, W. Va., a remarkable land conflict is in progress on Fishing :reek, Wetzel county. Mrs. L. 6. Robin- son of this place is the owner of some acres of land in that section. She has had thousands of feet of timber out of it and made extensive improvements. A Urge number of squatters have settled on tbe land at varipus times and they have given the owners much trouble. Recently Mrs. Robinson built some houses and rented them to tenants. The squatters have ob- jected to this and threatened to expel the renters. On Wednesday last a mob of 306 men gathered at one of Mrs. Robinson's houses and began to threaten the a widow with her family. Sheriff White was hastily summoned and commanded the peace. The mob paid no attention to him. They drove the family out of tbe house and then tore it to pieces, after which they fired the ruins. One Aye is said to have been the leader of tbe squad. Tbe affair has created intense excitement in that section. The members of the mob are known and warrants are out for their arrest, though there may be trouble in serving them. Tlewlnc the Baltimore. BALTIMORE, May such scenes of life and activity have heretofore been wit- nessed in Baltimore harbor as were seen there yesterday. The great crowds that visited the new cruiser Baltimore on Sat- urday were made to appear small by com- parison yesterday. It is estimated that people went out to the cruiser during the day. During the afternoon the crowds were so great that many boat-loads re- turned to the city without being able to make a landing, the passengers having to be content with only a look at the cruiser. A few accidents and collisions are reported owing to the jam, but then are no fatal- ities reported. To-night a ball will be given at Lehmann's hall in honor of Capt. Sehleyand his officers. The May night fete at Harris Academy to-morrow prom- ises to be the most enjoyable occasion of the season._________________ A Fight Over the Lottery's Charter. NEW ORLEANS, May legislature in second biennial session will meet at Baton Rouge at noon. ,Jne session will be an exciting one, so by the fact that the Louisiana Lottery com- pany will seek to procure the passage of a constitutional amendment permitting an extension of its charter. This proposition will be fought inch by inch by a strong lobby and also by the Anti-Lottery League. It is rumored that some members of the legislature are pledged both ways and that there may be some vacant seats at the commencement of tbe genera] assembly in consequence. An Agreement Keaehed. SpRiSGnEtD, m., May soft coal miners and operators came to an agius j ment Saturday and the men will go to I work to-day. The scale as adjusted is higher than paid elsewhere in the state and the i men feel that they have obtained a signal I victory. Tbe rate is 6 cents higher than the Columbus scale and will remain in force until May, 1891. I Hofllfl Body Feud. I PLATTSBruG, N. Y., May body found at Willisboro bay on Friday'night has been identified as that of Miss Cath- arine Moffitt, sister of Congressman Mof- fltt, who disappeared from her home Bear Beekmantown on the night of Dec. a last. It is supposed she committed suicide by drowning..____________________ A Stone Han Keeted. EMPORICM, May anti- Delemater delegate, was elected over Mc- Namey, Delemater's man. Mlnniek's first choice is Stone and his second Hast- ings. There was a strong feeling for Hastings shown during the day. OB the I again nadl the end at hte bodTwnsfoand imtte who came here two weeks ago from New York as chief cook of Haeder's hotel, hanged himself. Tits cause for the suicide is unknown. DUNKIRK N.

Rochester division held a meet- ing yesterday afternoon and visiting dele- gates were present frvm Iowa, Nebraska, New Jersey. Tennessee, Colorado. Indiana, MasBachnsertB. Vermont and other states. The greater nuuber of delegates will ar- rive A special train consisting of twelve Pall- man coaches left Chicago yesterday and another special train left Pittsburg con- veying the Eastern and Southern dele- gates. There are divisions of the order to the United States, Canada and Mexico, and representatives are expected from each of them. A public reception of the grand division will be given at the Lyceum theatre to-morrow morning at which ad- dresses will be delivered by Secretary of State Rice. Mayor Carroll, Senator Mc- Xaughton and others. A spirited contest is expected when the officers are elected. The present grand chief conductor. C. S. Wbeaton, is a can- didate for re-election and Grand Secretary William P. P. Daniels is said to be a can- didate for the office. Tbe New England delegates are also said to have a favorite and other candidates are being quietly boomed. It Is understood that a deter- mined effort will be made to reverse that clause from the constitution which pro- hibits strikes. The present chief conduc- tor is out-pot en in denunciation of this movement and bis position will undoubt- edly affect his candidacy for re-election. The convention will probably last a week or ten days. WagHEtOTOR, May 12.-Tbe senate will begin in earnest to-day the discussion of the silver bill. Mr. Jones of Nevada, who has been absent from the city for several dajs, will be in his seat to-day and will take charge of the bill The Repn''ican senators will make some effort to agree upon a party measure to-day before the of the senate begins, but the mat- tor of their agreement is extremely doubt- ful. The present intention is to push tbe debate to a conclusion this week if possi- ble: but several amendments to the bill will be proposed, and as each will be dis- cussed at some length it is a matter of soubt whether the discussion will becon- atnded within that time or not. Tbe Republicans are anxious to get the silver naeaamre oat of the way to prepare for the coming of the tariff bill: for the question of adjournment has been dis- ssed informally in the committee of nuance and the committee on appropria- tions, and it has been determined that the suggestion of Speaker Reed, that an ad- journment be had by the middle of July, is a good one. Tbe bills for tbe admission of Wyoming aad Idaho are to be considered also in the near future, but they cannot be taken up before the silver bill bt out of the way and that will be another reason for pushing tbe silver debate to a conclusion. The military academy appropriation bill is still on the calendar, but it can be passed dur- ing the morning hour without debate. Debate on the tariff bill by sections will bathe order of tbe house for the entire week. The vote an tbe final passage of tbe bill will not be taken until the week following. In the consideration of the bill by sections, amendments will be of- fered and tbe debate will be governed by the five minutes' rule. LIKE WIFE. Portw Pwtenmlnerl That Otwia Snail be Above Suspicion. WASKISOTOS, May Porter has sent the following important order to all supervisors of census: "It has been brought to the attention of the su- perintendent of census that the city coun- cils and of trade of certain western cities have appropriated sums of money to aid their census supervisors in the enum- This whole matter, together with tbe facts in tbe poesessioii of this office, has been laid before the honorable secretary of the interior, aad the action of the superin- tendent of census in placing every legiti- mate obstacle at his command in the way of the distribution of local funds for this purpose meets with tbe secretary's approval.'' Crookedness In an Albany Beak. ALBANY, May whole clerical force of tbe Albany City bank, from which Bookkeeper Whitney embezzled such a large amount, bare been at work on the books continually, and it is stated taat the sum will be er over. Leonard Groesbeck, United States bank examiner, is in the city and taking a hand in the in- vestigation. The bank is perfectly solvent and is prepared for a run, having plenty of ready cash through the courtesy of other city banks. William Gould, of the firm that is said to have been in collusion with Whitney, said that the statement is false. It is, however, asserted thit indi- vidual members of the firm have been the culprits. Several other firms are men- tioned as having crooked transactions, one of the directors of the bank, Mr. Amsdell, head of the large brewing firm, having paid in Saturday night to cover worthless paper that bis son had made in collusion with Whitney. Cyclone In fTsnsss CHAJrrnt, Kan., May A cyclone struck Cedar Valley, Wilson county, at 4 p. m. Friday, Joseph WUtzey's house was demolished, his youngest son killed and two other children injured. Next the dwelling of Frank Glidden was destroyed, his wife killed and two children injured. Tbe dwellings of Peter Pierson and Aleck Russell and the widow Starr were levelled to the ground, and Mr. Pierson and wife so badly injured that they are not ex- pected to live. A scantling was blown completely through the body of Mr. Starr. He is still alive, bnt will die. The wife and baby of tbe Rev. J. R. Chambers were blown in different directions out of a buggy. A second blast picked the mother up and deposited her alongside the child. Arrested (or Ineewllnrlssn. BoSTOJi, May E. Gillia, whose photograph shop on Charles street was burned in January and again in March, was arrested Saturday, together with Dave Punch, John MeDermott, W. J. Me- Mnrphy and Charles Ring, charged with conspiracy to cause the fires. Punch for- merly ran an ink factory, which was burned last October. He and Gilhs were traveling with a photograph car when ar- rested. Cmc'lMiATL, May Denton county graad jury of Corington, Ky., reported is against three pool rooms at PENNSYLVANIA PRIMARIES. Warren, MrKean and Cameron for Stone and for PtTTsBfEG, May to The Times gives the revised returns from the Republican primaries held Saturday in McKean, Venango. Cameron and Warren counties, which comprise the Twenty- seventh congressional district as -Secretary of the Commonwealth Stone captured tbe in Warren and Cameron counties. Delemater won in Venango. Stone haa an apparent major- ity in McKean, which was the real buttle ground, bnt this may be turned in Dele- maters favor before the convention meets on Tuesday. Congressman Watson car- ried three of the feur counties and will be renotninstt-d for congress. Republican primaries were also held in mawr, two for Stone and two Ithose in Mc- Kean county, in doubt. ssjrp r nThe tv8: is legitimate, and to ore- is-five the government to obtain a fair and full enumeration, I am compelled to look upon it as an almost Irreslstilte temptation to fraud and as consequently endangering an honest count of the people. If tolerat- ed by this office it woold have a tendency to bring the whole censes into disrepute. You are, therefore, positively instructed not to receive any such compensation yourself, nor countenance for one instant the payment of any sum of money what- ever, by municipalities, corporations, as- sociations or persons, to enumerators. Any supervisor of census who is not cos- tent with the remuneration allowed by law (which U double the amount paid in 1880) should at once resign. -The eleventh census must and shall be above suspicion. To tolerate any action on tbe part of municipalities, associations, organizations or individuals, no matter how powerful they may be, which has for its purpose the debauching, or which would even throw tbe slightest taint upon the truthfulness of the returns would, in my opinion, be nothing short of a crime against the people of tbe United States. Conflicting- CsnTawee. BRADFORD. Pa., May are two decidedly different sets of tables exhibited aa result-sot the Republican primaries in McKean county. In one at them may be read decisive victory for Stone and Emery and in the other exactly the contrary. The election was very close and different districts were won and lost by small fig- ures. Of the sixty-eight select- ed, Delemater men claim thirty two for Watson and Delemater. with five others that are counted for and Emery, thus giving their candidates a majority of two. Mr. Emery's ngtires are 38 for him- self and Stone. 30 for Delemater, with 21 for Watson and 9 for Smith for congress. Delemater's faction allow ten votes for Smith and also claim them for Delemater. Breweriea Consolidated. CHICAGO. May The purchase and consolidation of the leading breweries has finally been consummated and the details of the futnre management are about per- fected. Hussell R Monroe of Rochester has been at the Richelieu for several weeks working to this end and the matter ia now in such shape that the stock will shortly be placed upon the English market. The proposed directors are six in London who are not named, Russel H. Monroe, who will join the board after allotment, and Thies J. Lefens, William Seipp. John A. Orb, F. J. Devres, L. C. Huck.

In the bupgy were Miss Alice Glover, Mrs. Aaron Sheese and her daughter and son. Miss Glover had a leg and arm broken and received other injuries which are fatal.

Destructive Hall Storm. NEW ORLEANS. May are re- ceived that a terrific hall storm visited Grand Isle and vioiuity a few days ago, doing damage roughly estimated at 000.
