between these two place will have to be redistributed. It has always been a matter of surprise that the Burlington did not make use of its line for passen ger traffic, as that road possessed as many advantages as any other road run mug between Chicago and and st I onto When the road was first completed na * se liger trains were run for a time but were soon taken off to avoid a dist’u-h acce of rates.
Hut now that rates are being contin.!-ally demoralized by such senseless and useless cutting as is being practiced now the Burlington officials are opening their eyes, and unavailing regrets for what they have undoubtedly lost are taking hold of them. They have determined to stay out of tile St. Louis passenger business no longer.
The At« bison has made a contract with the Jacksonville Southern for a mileage over that line, from which route it can essily get into St. Louis. Thus Hie long contemplated plan of the Atchison to get a continuation for through passenger aud freight business of the Atchison, St. Louis and San Fracisco line is about to be realized.
For this new passenger service seven trains of the most elegant design that the Pullman can build have been ordered, and tlu> new route will be opened on their completion.
While these two new lines are not 'bort lines, they will be competing roads iii every sense, and their opening, by forcing the existing roads to divide business with them, will completely change the railroad situation iii the affected ter-ritorv.

Hrs Mots is, Oct. IO.—It i- said upon good authority that the Chicago. Des Moines and Pacific Railway company, recently incorporated, is negotiating for the Wabash line between this city and Harvey, about fifty miles southeast. This piece of road has not been profitable, and the Wabash, it is said, is willing to dispose of it. It traverses probably the best coal field in Iowa and would be a valuable acquisition to the Santa Fe, by which the new Chicago, Des Moines and Pacific corporation is said to be controlled It is also said that the Chicago and Northwestern company no sooner heard of this contemplated deal with the Wabash company than it began to make counter negotiations. It is averred that the sale of the road to one or the other of the companies will be made within the next few days. The price asked i- understood to be 87,000,000.

Ai;i.isoxf Kau., Oct. lo.-The president looked on a clouded >ky this morning when the rising call was heard in the Ilaslemero. At 7:30 the president’s train entered the yards at St. Joseph and backed down to the station, where a cheering crowd greeted him. Ii.- entered the depot hotel on the arm of Colonel \.
(. Dawes, the secretary of the navy and other members of the party following, lhe president was then taken up-stairs on to the balcony of the hotel, which had been beautifully draped and adorned with dowers. His appearance on the balcony was greeted with prolonged cheering. ( olonel Dawes introduced the president to the crowd which filled the streets for fully a square. The president said:
My Fkllow Citizens lf you arc glad to see me at this hour in the morning, if you ;ire so kind and demonstrative before breakfast, how great would have been your welcome if I could have come a little later in the day? | Applause. | I beg to thank you who, at so much inconvenience, at this early hour have turned out to speak these words of welcome as we pass through your beautiful city. I am glad to have this morning a brief and imperfect opportunity to look upon it. Many years ago I read of St. Joseph. I knew something of its story when, instead of boing a railroad city, it was a place for outfitting those slow’ and toilsome trains that bore the early pioneers towards California and the far west; those days were days not to be despised. Those means of communication were slow, but they bore men and women full of courage and patriotism to do for us on the Pacific coast and in the groat west a work of peaceful conquest that has added mightily to the glory and prosperity of our country. and yet we congratulate ourselves that these swifter means of communication have taken the place of the old, we codgratulatc ourselves that these conveniencies, both of busine--of social life have come* to crown day, and yet in the midst of them, joying the luxury which modern civ f inn brings to our doors, let us not from our house holds those plain sturdy virtues which are essentia true American citizenship.
At. the conclusion of tin* president's remarks, tile party retired to the rotunda of the depot where the president shook ii ands with the crowd as they filed through. At exactly s ;q the train pulled out of St Joseph, amid the cheering of the crowd. Tile run to Atchison made without incident beyond Ho

He was almost buried beneath flower' showered upon him by school children assembled at the depot. Chief Justice Horton, of the Kansas supreme court, welcomed the president to the state, and the latter in response made a few remarks and introduced .Secretary Tracy just a* the train pulled out.
Before reaching Topeka several small towns were passed through and in each was the usual enthusiastic crowd of people. At 10:30 the 'rain pulled into the depot at Topeka amid the cheers of a vast. multitude. .Senator Ingalls received the party at this point. The president was escorted to tile state house by Governor Humphry and bis staff and there reviewed the immense parade as it marched by. It took over for the many thousands past the capital.

[Prolonged cheers.)
At the conclusion of the president’s address there were loud cries for Senator Ingalls, who was compelled to respond.
I u the course of his speech one corner of the speaker s stand began settling from the great mass of humanity on it, and President Harrison warned Senator Ingalls that the stand was going Women and men rapidly vacated tho stand, thus relieving the pressure.
“This i- the second platform,’’ 'aid Senator Ingalls “that I have broken down since I have come home. Who will doubt that I am a man of weight..”
The presidential party left at four o'clock. At Lecompton the president was cheered loudly by a large crowd. No further stop- were made until the train reached Lawrence. There another large assembly greeted tin- president and the school children added to the welcome by a profusion of bouquets and the waving of Mags. The president excused himself from speaking more than a few words after having talked to all the rest of Unpeople in Lawrence in an immense crowd congregated at Topeka to-day. He reminded the people that all tile inspiration connected with the story of tho early history of Kansas clustered around the city of Lawrence and was sure they will find in that -tory the inspiration and suggestion that will keep the cause of liberty ever near their hearts. |Groat applause.
\ I KANSAS ( ITV.
Kan-.v* City, Oct. IO.—The presidential train arrived here at 5:45. under e-cort of lion. William Warner. Mayor Holmes and other distinguished gentlemen and committees. The president aud party were driven around the city somewhat and finally taken to the Coates house. Here a magnificent banquet was tondered the president, Secretary Tracy, the president'- brother, John S. Harrison and tile remainder of the presidential party. Before the conclusion of the banquet, the president retired to visit the residence of Iii- brother. John Harrison is a much younger man than the president and. strange to say, is a democratic politician.
Before leaving tile president spoke briefly, excusing himself, saying in conclusion that lie hoped ail their dreams for Kansas City may be realized.

FLED FROM IRELAND.
Dillon and O'Brien Escape from Balfour’s Clutches.
Now En Route for Amerind—Tory Plan* Completely t pact—The Tipperary Magistrates Trying to Hold tin- Bond-men.
London, Get. IO.— Dillon and O'Brien have lied. Ii is believed they are now in mid-ocean en route to America. When court opened in Tipperary this morning to continue tho hearing of the - ase against these gentlemen it wa- found that neither of hem were present, and no explanation of their absence was offered. Wild rumors then began to spread, and before long the belief prevailed that the police had been baffled and that the two leaders had escaped from Mr. Balfour’s clutches. The magistrates looked angry aud there wait merry twinkle in Tim Belly's eve that indicated the greatest po-siole satisfaction with himself and with flu* rest of the world.
Policemen were sent sc Drying around tile town in search of the fugutives, but no trace of them could be found. Telegrams wero sent to Dublin, Cork, Liverpool and London and tile police of those cities were also set in motion, but without any satisfactory result. Then the trutti began to dawn upon Colonel Cod-del! and the “removables” and Prosecutor Ronan that the six month- at hard labor they were preparing for tile men who started the “plan of campaign'’ and who made New Tipperary would lie spent pitching into Balfour and the "peeler- ’ to crowded Iri-h audiences n the United States, and that it was Balfour, mc Dll- j Ion, who “overdone the thing.”
It i- now remembered that both o: the I iri-h leader- were on Monday last at tic* I conference of the Iri-h national party, held in Dublin, designated as members of tic* delegation to visit America and present the political position in Ireland as it exists to-day. They are also instructed to enlist the sympathy and aid of the American people in behalf of tic- famine-threatened Iri-h peasantry. The belief that they -ailed fr<un Queenstown has little to stand upon, as every policeman watching the steamer- at that port know- tic- personal appearance of gentlemen. It i- more likely that started from Havre.
There is little, if any. doubt tha objective point of Dillon and O'Brien is the I nited State-. It i- known, however, that they have avoided the ordinary routes cf travel between tile two countries, and up to the present hour absolutely nothing is known of the manner in which they succeeded in eluding Die watchfulness of the large police and military fore. gathered in and about Tipperary. Bail in tile case of both Mr. Dillon and Mr. O'Brien will at once be estreated, and already the announcement is made on behalf o! the Irish National League of it- intention to recoup the sureties. The escape has excited great admiration and enthusiasm in the rank-of the nationalist- both in England and Ireland, while the g- vernrnent i* confused by the rdudine-- wii officers, cautioned to be especial! alert, have been hoodwinked.

Turning slowly around the figure ascended the roof again, walking on tin- extreme edge, poi.-cd for a moment on til.- point of the roof, then appeared to diminish in -ize, finally disappearing altogether. The three men were almost horror-stricken, and rushed acro-s the street into the yard, expecting to ti rid that the man had fallen: but no trace of man or pole could be found.

As the large body of Illinois veterans passed the president, Davies, “the lighting parson," cried: “Let Illinois, the home of Lincoln, the home of Grant, the home of Logan, give three cheers fur the president of tin-United States.” And they were given with a vim. As the Indiana column passed by, in which were many of tin* president's former brigade, tile enthusiasm knew no bounds. Among the old veterans the honor of the day were gained by the Illinoi- soldiers who furnished the largest contingent in the line of march.
