If ie declaration is not true, then the free ride structure falls to the ground. he history of the country, said idiom, shows conclusively the effect of protection has been to reduce rices.

TEE HOUSE. A St. Louis Man Shoots His Wife Rather Than Be Separated From Her. Sr. Loris, Aug. 19.—Ed. Hake shot and killed his wife yesterday while she was sleeping, and then shot himself, inflicting a mortal wound. A few weeks ago he stole >4.500 from his father, but was arrested and the money recovered. Hake, while being taken to the hospital said his father had made it a condition for withdrawing the prosecution against him for taking the money that he should apply for a divorce from his wife. This he consented to do and did enter suit, but later he found he loved his wife so much he preferred to kill her and himself rather than be separated from her.

Cartuage, 111., Aug. 19.—It is said that tin* wheat stubble field" in this county have been raided by sportsmen to-day, who claim that the law against shooting prairie chickens has expired. In answer to numerous questions on that seoree Senator O. F. Berry, of this city, who has introduced an amendment to the game law, says: “The bill passed by the last legislature, amending the game law. came from the house, fixing the date for chicken shooting September 15. It was amended in the senate to read September I, and went back to the house for concurrence. and the journals show that the senate amendment was concurred in. The bill was, by mistake, enrolled September 15. but the bill as passed by both houses is September I. and I have no doubt that is the law in tin* state. An error of the enrolling clerk could not change the law as passed. Sportsmen say the natural date for valley chicken shooting is August 15. Indianapolis, Aug. 19.—Mr. Llalford, private secretary of the president, was formerly one of the editors of the Journal of this city and it is understood that that paper enjoys exceptional facilities for obtaining inside nows about public affairs. A Washington special to the Journal says it is believed it reflects the views of the administration regarding reciprocity with Mexico, Central aud South America, It has been frequently asserted by those who are opposed to the reciprocal treaty that the “favored-nation clause'5 in treaties between the South American republics and European powers would prevent, or at least nullify, any advantages we might gain from such negotiations. This is untrue. Very few of the South American countries have commercial treaties with Europe, and even if there were treaties containing the favored-nation clause, it would not apply to such reciprocal concessions as are proposed by the United States. Brazil, for example, if she had a treaty with England containing tho favored-nation clause, would, of cour.-e, be compelled to give England the same advantages in trade that she gives us. In other words, she would be compelled to admit bread-stuffs, provisions, lumber, petroleum and other articles from England free of duty to her ports as well as those from the United States, provided England gave her similar concessions, but England produces no breadstuffs, provisions, petroleum or lumber for export, neither does France, Germany, Austria or Italy, with whom she has commerce. Spain produces a little wheat for export, but that is sent to Cuba with greater profit than to other nations because that island is a colony of Spain and gives advantag* s to Spanish products which the producers of other countries do not enjoy. But in negotiating a reciprocity treaty with the United States, Brazil would insist upon including only our peculiar products, which are not produced by any of the European nations. We have no competition in that market for our peculiar products, except from the Argentine Republic. which has been producing a large quantity of wheat and corn, and has exported these articles to tho value of fifteen or eighteen million dollars a year. During the current year tho Argentine Republic lias been an importer of wheat, because of the failure of two successive crops, owing to drought: but the country bas an enormous capacity for the production of cereals and will become a dangerous rival, not only in Rrazil, but in the markets of Europe. It is therefore the more important that the United States should secure a permanent foothold in these markets while it has the opportunity. Brazil cannot make a reciprocity treaty with the Argentine Republic because of local conditions. First, the ports of the Argentine Republic are closed to commerce with Brazil for at least, six months in the year for sanitary reasons. Yellow fever is epidemic in Brazil and the ports of the two countries are so contiguous that steamers from Brazil are required to remain in quarantine for ten or twelve days before unloading, aud commerce with infected ports is suspended by presidential proclamation for the whole season. Second, Brazil has not hing to offer tho Argentine Republic in exchange for her wheat, except coffee, and that is now being raised in large quantities in the northern provinces of the Argentine Republic and Paraguay. The United States has the favored-nation claus); in most of her commercial treaties, but this will not embarrass the I government in the negotiation of reciprocity treaties or arrangements with other nations, because the department of state has uniformly held from the time of Mr. Jefferson, as secretary of state. to Mr. Blaine, that the favored-nation clause only applys where privileges are granted freely and without a consideration, but wherever a special consideration is made the condition of a favor granted or received, the favored-nation clause does not apply. This interpretation lias been recently sustained by the supreme court of the United States in its opinion on the case of Bartram vs. Robertson, October term, I ".so. This case arose under the Hawaiian reciprocity treaty, it being claimed that sugar and molasses imported from the island of St. Croix, a colony of Denmark, should be admitted free from duty under the favored-nation clause of a treaty between the United States and Denmark, because like articles were admitted free from the Hawaiian Islands. The supreme court rejected the claim, stating that tile “treaty with Denmark does not bind the United States to extend to that country compensatory privileges which they have conceded to the Hawaiian Islands in exchange for valuable concessions.55 now as though it would go over until next session.    • If the Quay resolution Is adopted it is believed adjournment will be had during the last ten days of September. Major McKinley, however, does not believe that congress can be anjourned before the last of October, even if the resolution is adopted in the senate on Wednesday. With the tariff bill he thinks there will be ti conference of at least two weeks. There is a decided feeling in the house, however, which may compel an earlier adjournment. Nothing can be more absurd than the talk about hanging up the tariff bill by the house republicans in revenge for the hanging up of the election bill by the senate. It is true that many of the members, particularly the western and and southern men, are very sore over the fate of the bill. Nevertheless, despite this bitterness, the tariff bill will bo passed as it comes out of conference. There are many members who see no reason why it should not be in conference two weeks, as Mr. McKinley thinks necessary. THE SEA SERPENT IS DEAD. SCALDED AND CRUSHED.

Halifax, NU S., Aug. 19.—Captain Ohed Knowlton, of the schooner Trader,* at Advocate Harbor, reports that while on his way from Boston, he sighted what he supposed to be the wreck of a vessel, lit* at once bore down on it when to his great astonishment he discovered it to be the dead carcass of a gigantic sea monster, unlike anything lie had ever seen before. His vessel got within twelve feet of it and it seemed to be about eighty feet long and twenty feet broad, and was covered with a shell on its back. The monster tapered off at each end and was striped like a zebra. It had tile appearance of being run into by a vessel, as th*1 shell on its back was broken in. .An Old Colony Express Train Jumps the Track—Terrible Scenes of Agony and Death Follow^—Steam Scalds Many Violins. CARBON CLIFF'S SENSATION. Til** Little bv Illinois Town Shocked Filmily Fracas. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Camion Cliff, 111.. Aug. IO.—This place, which is a quiet little mining town a few miles east of Moline, had it sensation Sunday afternoon, and the first one since it was founded. It was a family fracas and it came near being a tragic one. Albert Evans, a young farmer, lias been living, together with his wife, with lu r father, a man named Cushman. There has been trouble, and jealousy between Evans aud his wife, and Sunday this came to a head in an attempt on his part to shoot her. Her father, Cushman, interfered, and then Evans shot at him. Cushman was not deterred by a little thing like this from following him, but crowded him into a close corner and was about to annihilate him when Evans drew a razor and in tile melee slashed his wife in the arm. Ile then fled from Cushman, tiring the barn as he passed it.. He got away, though the neighborhood i was aroused to chase him, and to-day | made his appearance at Rock Island and | surrendened to tho sheriff. The barn and contents, including three horses, burned to tho ground, with a loss of Five thousand dollars. The region is wild over tho matter and lynch law is likely to be attempted. GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS. Peace for San Salvador. San Sat yadou, Aug. 19.—General Ezeta, provisional president of Salvador, has received a telegram from the confidential agent of Salvador, now in Guatemala. saying that the terms of tile treaty of peace have been arranged. The dispatch says tho treaty is most favorable to Salvador. All points demanded by General Egetu have been conceded by tho Guatemala government. Owing to the receipt of this Ezeta ha-- revoked his orders to the army to advance toward the city of Guatemala and consequently there has boul a cessation of hostilities. Advices received here yesterday says oneof the Guatemala garrisons on the frontier became insubordinate Saturday aud a desperate fight ensued. The trouble resulted because the soldiers were not regularly paid. When the riot was finally quelled forty •lead and wounded were found on tho field.    __ Servian Progressionists Poisoned. Bm.*;u.\in:, Aug. 19.—A committee of the Servian 'progressionists party attended a banquet at Topic.

Provoke a To-day. Indianapolis, Aug. 19.—The Washington correspondent of the Journal tel-graphs that when Senator Quay's resolution fixing an order of business for the remainder of the session comes up tomorrow it is expected a lively skirmish will begin. The adding of the antilottery bill to Hie list of measures which Senator Quay proposes to discuss during tho remainder of tho session has not given the proposition any strength, as the adoption of the lottery bill by the senate has been conceded as a matter of ourse, but it must be confessed that Senator Quay’s proposition to limit the remainder of the session to certain measures, not including tile election bill, has grown in popularity. Fifteen or twenty republican senators are very much determined that the election bill shall be passed before adjournment, and it i-barely possible, although not probable, that th** four or live resolutions looking toward a curtailment of debate and limiting th*1 length of the session will be staved off by some movement. Yet, if it i" true, as stated upon the authority of a number of well-informed republican senators, that there ar*' as many as fifteen in the east side of the chamber who will join the solid democratic side in the effort of Mr. Quay to limit consideration of th** measures, the struggle on Wednesday will be a success in a greater or less degree to the efforts of th*; Bennsylvanian. The impression prevails that the Quay resolution will be adopted in some form. Mr. Ingalls, who presides over tho senate in th*' absent1*' of the vice-president, said .this afternoon that he hoped a verbal agreement could b*' made between the republicans whereby th*' measures named by Senator Quay could be disposed of before adjournment without resorting to th** adoption of a resolution or caucus action, but Senator Quay said later in the day that he did not see how it was possible, as a majority of the senators were tired of th** session and eager to get away and wanted a time fixed for adjournment. Senator Quay contends that there is no political question involved in the consideration of his resolution, that it is purely a matter of business for tho country and convenience for individual senators. Ile says that if a program is agreed upon the democrats will string out th** debate on the tariff bill and consume the remainder of the session in consideration of measures, which he names in his resolution, before the election bill is reached, arid without any consideration whatever of the bill last determined fight will be made by the friends of the election bill for its consideration before adjournment, but It looks A Quincy Man’* Death. ’Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Noma Springs, Aug. 19.—A man. said to be Thomas II. Little, of Quincy. Illinois, died her*; at th*' .Junction dept last night shortly after being assisted from th** train by the conductor and trainmen. He took tile passenger going east at Everly, and was to go south from this point. Tilt; deceased had the appearance of a person with the consumption. Boston, Aug. 19.—One of the most disastrous railroad accidents that ever oecurod in the vicinity of Boston, and one that rivals the famous Wollaston disaster of October 5, I STS, occurred this afternoon on the same road, Old Colony, and very near the same locality. In the Wallston disaster fifteen were killed and nearly one hundred and fifty injured. To-day fifteen persons were killed and twenty-three seriously injured, three fatally and several more sustaing slight injuries. The train wrecked to-day was the Woodsholl express which was due in Boston at 1:50 p. in. It consisted of a locomotive, coach, baggage car, smoker, the Pullman Puritan, and four ordinary coaches. The train was running about ten miles per hour, and just beyond President’s bridge the engine left the track, from a cause at present undetermined, and plunged into an embankment twelve feet high. The tender, baggage car, smoker and Pullman passed by the engine and were stretched along for a distance of one hundred feet beside the track. The front passenger coach left the rails and foil upon its left side upon the engine. The lower forward portion was torn to pieces and of th*; passengers in the car, some fifty in number, many were thrown into the rear corner, from which eleven dead bodies wore afterwards taken out. Escaping steam arid smoke from the engine instantly filled the < ar. The forward cars were forced up over the outward bound track, completely blocking traffic all day and night. Only three persons on the train ahead of the passenger coach are injured. They were the fireman, who was instantly killed and buried under the engine; the engineer and Pullman car conductor who wore both badly injured. In the three rear passenger coaches, the occupants received no worse injury than slight shaking up. Tho first passenger coach was the principal seen** of death and agony and the experience of the unluck occupants was probably never exceeded in horror and suffering in any ruilroad wreck of recent years. The killed are:    Mrs. Orcutt Allen, Philadelphia: Mrs. Mary E. Fen-neily, aged severity, Louisville, F. J. Johnson, Montpelier, Vermont: John Ryan, fireman of the train. Four women, two men and two children unidentified: Mrs. A. C. Wells, of Hartford, Connecticut, a daughter of L. Welsch, of Waterville, Connecticut, Alice and Catharine Fennelly. The following were critically injured: Mrs. Oscar Fennelly, of Louisville, scalded over the whole body: C. M. Copp, of Cleveland, Ohio, scalded over the whole body, not expected to live; E. C. Baffy, of Dorchester, formerly proprietor of tho Boston Herald, scalded on face and hands. These seriously injured number thirty and the condition of two or three are critical. William Genuell, of Boston, who wa> a passenger in the fourth car of the train, gives the following graphic account of his experience in the wrecked * ar, where most of the dead and injured lay. “The train wa> running through Quincy at the rate of thirty miles an hour. When near Presidents bridge there was a rumbling sound, followed by an awful crash. The three forward ears lurched and left the track. The fourth kept the rails and swept along upon the broken locomotive, which lay in its way, forcing itself on top of it. The "hock was terrific arid it seemed as if the car was lifted up twenty feet in tho air. When the car descended on the engine it swerved suddenly, the occupants being thrown violently about. Steam came into the car in dense clouds from the locomotive beneath, scalding ; and almost suffoeatidg the people inside. Men and women were ga-ping about me. They tried to speak and shout as they became weaker and weaker, the steam tilled their lungs. I could see them push their hands or feet through the broken windows, trying in vain to get a breath of fresh air. It seemed as though eight or ton died right there before me. There were forty or fifty passengers in the car and all seemed wounded more or less, twenty-five at lea"t seriously. I saw the elothes burned from men and women as the steam enveloped them, and I heard them groaning in their death struggles, as the steaming fumes beearn*# hotter and denser. Finally, I reached a hole in tin* bottom of the car in some way and crawled out. All about was wreck and ruin. Passengers from other cars had then hardly gathered themselves together and were not to be seen. But over on the fence bordering the railroad track were fifteen or twenty watchmen, powerless from fright and astonishment. I screamed, shouted and swore at them, but they would not move. These men saw me tear at boards of car bottoms with ail my might; saw me puli helpless women from th** car: saw me caught beneath a falling bar of iron and unable to extricate myself or aid others, and they refused to aid me. I did what I was able in assisting others. it was Mr. Gilman Kansas, who was also of this place. Grandma Wilder, an aged citizen of this place, died lust Thursday afternoon at her home here. She was a victim of paralysis and her Illness had been Ioi.g, though painless. Four children survive her, Augustus Wilder, of this place, with whom she had made h»>r home, Mrs. Asa Turner, of Mitchelluille. Iowa, whose husband is a -on of Father Turner, so well-known arid loves by all; Mrs. Ellen Brooks and George Wilder, both of Mt.

From tho Cedar Raping Times. The plaint of every speaker in th** late democratic state convention was that the republican party ignored the fanner and republican administration was adverse to the farmers’ interests. The farmer was held up as downtroden man, tit** greatest sufferer from republican mal-administra-tion and ids right to occupy a prominent place in our state and national government was strongly argued and gloriously pictured. These platform speeches in behalf of the farmer and his interests would lead one to conclude that it was the intention of th*; convention to turn the "tate government, so far as democracy could do so, over to the farmer" of Iowa: to put none but farmers on guard as the officers. But strange and inconsistent as it may appear, til** convention did.not nominate a man who has any personal interest, directly or indirectly, in agriculture. The very existence of the farmer was ignored in the nominations. Here is tile record: \V. H. Chamberlain, nominee for secretary of stat*', is a dry goods m**r-chant. G. S. Whitter, nominee for auditor of state, is an editor and lawyer. W. L. White, for treasurer of state, is serving Dis third term as treasurer of Wayne county. C. II. Maekey, for attorney general.-is a lawyer. Ii. P. Wolf, for judge of the supreme court, is a lawyer. E. J. Sankoy, for clerk, is a lawyer. T. W. Ivory, for supreme court reporter, is a lawyer. Peter A. Dey for railroad commissioner. is a lawyer. Thus It will be seen that out of the eight nominees six of them are lawyers. .lust how many of them belong to the much democratically abused class of “railroad lawyers” we don't know, but we suspect any aud all of them would take a good, fat railroad case if they could get it.

Boston, Mass., Aug. 19.—A serious accident happened this afternoon to tin* Cape Cod and Woodshall train on th** Old Colony at Quincy. The train jumped the track one hundred feet on the other side of th** President's. The first passenger coach fell on the engine, the latter having toppled over. The engine set fir*' to the train. The fireman was instantly killed and the engineer fatally injured. As far as can be learned eight passengers were killed and about twenty injured; th** latter were for a greater part injured by escaping steam, having been frightfully scalded. The Quincy tire department was called to the scene as quickly as possible and the flames were soon extinguished. The dead and injured were removed to private houses and to Hie Quincy hospital. —Wind up excursion to-night. Pearl* soap Is themost pleasant totter adjunct Killed un Kuraping Prisoner.
