TEE RAUM INVESTIGATION. Commerce has been called upon to take similar steps. Mr Johnson says that the senate of the city has not yet taken any ofliicial steps in regard to the matter, but the head of the fhreign ofiiceof the Hamburg state, when he was called upon with reference to it stated that ho felt certain that it would do all in its power to assist the petitioners. Mr. Johnson calls attention to a fact which, he says, seems to be unknown to a great many ‘ pork merchants, and which if known might prove of importance to this interest. While the importation of American pork into Germany proper is absolutely forbidden it is permitted to import it into the bonded ware house district of Hamburg and sell it there to outward-bound vessels. As this district is quite a city in itself, outward-bound ships always provisioning there and nearly four thousand ships leave the port every year. Mr. Johnson says it can readily be seen what a marked, it would he for the great American product. Moreover, he says that our pork can be transported from the bonded district at Hamburg by rail in bond to several Baltic seaports in Germany, under certain conditions, and sold there to outward-bound vessels. Mr. Johnson was formally the editor of one of the leading dailies of Cincinnati. Following is the petition referred to by Mr. Johnson: To His E\< ellen* V, THM Imperial CHANCELLOR, ( J K NEPAL VON C A I ’ 111 VI, AT Berlin:    The    prohibition of the impor tation of American pork is especially burdensome for a great proportion of the people, because Germany 'ecrus to be unable to cover wants with her own production. The prices of pork have risen to excess and have reached a height which imposes upon the working classes a great restriction in their consumption of meat. One hundred kilograms of German salted bacon costs from 120 to HO marks at wholesale, whereas the American bacon would only cost from so to '.*0 marks, including duty. F On the other hand, large quantities of pork, much inferior to the American article, are imported from the adjoining countries, and higher prices are paid for the same. Moreover, the importation of live hogs becomes necessary from those countries, which yield a much smaller revenue to the empire than the same quantity of salted pork would do. The prohibition was proclaimed on account of the danger of trichinosis. An officially controlled inspection of pork-fur trichinosis did not exist, in America. It has come to our ears that the American government is now willing to meet the demands of the German government with regard to the inspection of American pork. The security given by this concession is still more strengthened by circumstances that a case of trichinosis has never been known to have occurred in Germany in consequence of the consumption of trichinosis American pork during the long space of time that this article was imported here. If, nothwithstandiug this, any scruples should exist, these could be removed by a compulsory inspection of the pork on its arrival in Germany. The undersigned respectfully and humbly pray that your excellency will cause the removal of the prohibition of the importation of American pork, in the interest of the working population, as well as the commerce and shipping of Germany.

New York, Sept. ll.—The first fall meeting of the Union League dub was held to-night with Chauncy M. Depew in the chair. General Sherman was on the platform. Mr. Depew made a speech. He thanked the club for its cordial welcome upon his return from abroad and 'aid: “Of all the great Americans known on the other side not even exeptingGen. Grant, none are so well knows as James G. Blaine and William McKinley. They seem to regard McKinley a- a man who has been studying up economic subjects and invented new schemes by which to close up the factories of Europe and to starve the people into submission to the American government. They plied me with questions as to McKinley and tried to got an expression as to the nature of the man and what he was going to do with all the people abroad. “I replied that the notion that McKinley was that sort of man was a mistaken one. I said possibly he had an idea of inducing them to migrate with all their factories and workmen to the great American country aud thus help give greater consuming power to our agricultural products. Inasmuch as some of the great governments abroad had taken a notion they did not want to be on familiar terms with the American hog. the best we could do was to increase the consuming capacity of the American hog at home.” commissioner had himself, saying he note to Lemon.

Miss., Sept. ll.—Judge Calhoun, president of the constitutional convention spoke at great length to-day in support of the Campbell plan mentioned in these dispatches, the scheme of which is to divide the state into thirteen gerrymandered election districts to be controlled by the whites. He sa*l even the presidency of the United States was a matter of insignificance compared with local self government. He did not propose to mince matters but if asked by anybody if it was the purpose of the convention to restrict negro suffrage he would frankly answer:    “Yes, that's what we are here for.” The liat had gone forth that fraud, force, and intimidation must cease and if the convention failed to insure white supremacy by peaceful methods he would, in case a negro was hereafter killed in political riot. regard himself and every member of the convention accessory to the murder. favor Awning prejudice.

(ii ic ago, Sept. ll.—Tho marvelous and extraordinary mind-reading test which cost Washington Irving Bishop his life several years ago was successfully accomplished at the Grand Pacific hotel yesterday afternoon by Paul Alexander Johnstone. The feat performed by Mr. Johnstone is as remarkable as it is wonderful. One is confronted by facts wholly beyond man’s reasoning or understanding, weird, mysterious, and totally inexplicable. rI his is what Mr. Johnstone did: He drove doubly blindfolded and with a black hood drawn completely over his head and shoulders, from the Auditorium hotel, through cross streets in the downtown thoroughfares thronged with vehicles, to tho Grand Pacific hotel. Then lie went up to the desk, was put in possession of one of the registry books and by mind-reading, picked a name from the several thousands registered inside. He not only {licked the name out but actually wrote it, out and in a character hand almost the exact fac-simile of the original signat ure. From the time he left the Auditorium hotel until he had written the name out, Mr. Johnstone remained blindfolded. Nobody said a word to him, nobody touched him. He drove blindfolded, picked the name out blindfolded, wrote it out blindfolded. It was the most remarkable exhibit ever given. How it was carried out the following facts indicate. Shortly before 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon, ll. Arthur Johnson, of the Chicago Press club, Thaddeus Dean, editor of the Lumberman, \V. C. Wright, manager of the Lumber Trade Journal, and Charles Lederer, all reputable newspaper men, started from the Auditorium in a two-horse rig. They were the commit lei* agreed upon to test the alleged mind-reading power of Mr. Johnstone. The agreement with Mr. Johnstone's manager, Mr. Gooding, was that they should drive to the Grand Pacific: that there one of them, Charles Lederer. should pick some name of a guest from the register. Then Mr. Lederer should remain at the Auditorium with the register containing the name picked out while the other three men should return to the Auditorium and Mr. Johnstone was to he put to the test. The route driven over by the committee of four from the Auditorium to the Grand Pacific hotels was as follows:    North on Michi gan avenue to Monroe street, west, on Monroe street to Wabash avenue to Jackson, west on Jackson to State, south on State to Van Buren, west on Van Buren to Clark street, north on Clark street to Jackson, thence to the Grand Pacific. This was by no means a straight route to the Grand Pacific, as will be observed “Now, gentlemen, keep your mind concentrated on the route over which you have just driven.'* requested Mr. Johnstone when the committee returned to the Auditorium. He then began prep-erations for starting. He passed his hands once or twice over the forehead of Arthur Johnson, who had driven to the Grand Pacific, and then snapped his fingers nervously. ‘•Quick, quick,” he cried, “blindfold me.” A silk handkerchief was produced. “Tighter, draw it tighter," cried Mr. Johnstone. "Put another one over that." he <aia. and a second handkerchief was produced. “Now, the hood—Quick! Oh, be quick!'’ The man’s nervous agitation was something unpleasant to *ee. The hood. a black cloak falling clear down over the shoulder', was thrown over his head. “Now conte, let us go” he said. Mr. Johnson took his right arm. Mr. Dean on his left. and Dr. G. F. Butler followed so as to be present if an accident should render Iris services necessary. “The mind-reader almost flew down the marble grand staircase of the auditorium. The rig was standing at the ladies’ entrance. Dr. Butler got into it, then Mr. Dean, Mr. W right, and finally the mind-reader was assisted into it. B. Arthur Johnson following. Mr. Johnstone sat upon the driver’s seat. Arthur Johnson who had driven the team to the Grand Pacific a few moments before, handed him the reins. These he took with one hand: with the other he touched Mr. Johnson's forehead. “All right!” he cried, and he touched up the horses, who started at an exceedingly lively gait,—so fast, indeed, that a park policeman shouted at them to halt. It was a startling sight to so.-this man. blindfolded, eagerly leaning i over the buggy railing, driving through I the great thoroughfares of Chicago. Traffic <>n Wabash avenue, State and j Clark street was at its height. Within I fifteen minutes the Grand Pacific wa> reached. A great, crowd was assembled, I although no public announcement was made that a test was to take place. Mr. Johnstone was in a fearfully excited state when he entered. He kept a constant snapping of his fingers and literally ran to reach the rotunda and the desk. Through a trilling misunderstanding the test came near failing. Instead of remaining in the rotunda with tin* register, as had been agreed upon. Mr. Lederer, to avoid the great crowd, went into the club room. Mr. Johnstone easily found him, but the strain on his mind was intense. When lie reached Lederer he was on the point of failing. The hood was at once removed. His face, at no time possessing color, was ghastly pale, while it was flooded with perspiration trinkling down in streams all over him. “Oh. take me into a private room,” he cried, “I shall faint: quick, quick, take J me away.” He reeled like a drunken man. “Give me a glass of whisky—oh, God. take me away.” He was taken up-stairs for a few moments. In the meanwhile Charles Lederer returned to the rotunda and then went behind tho counter. Within live minutes Mr. Johnstone came down. The hood was again on his face. “There he is, there he is,” he shouted. He was led to Lederer. “Give me the register,” he cried. He was trembling like an aspen leaf, shaken by the wind. A thrill went through him when the register was put under his hand. He shuffled the pages over nervously. The black hood was removed, but he was still blindfolded. Ile kept snapping his fingers constantly. “How many of you gentlemen know the name,” he cried. “Stand all around here, let me touch you.” Again he shuffled his lingers through the pages of the register. “For God’s sake, gentlemen.” lie cried, “do keep your mind on the name selected. Don't you see I am almost, ready to faint.” The crowd leaned over and almost brushed him. “Do stand back; stand back and give me a chance,” he said. He shut the register tight, then reopened it. He struck his foot on the ground. “Gentlemen, you are letting your minds wander. The name is on this page, August 25, and you know it is.” Ile passed his fingers upon and down tho page. “Now look at the name,” he said to Charles Lederer, “then close your eyes and think.” Lederer did as was requested. Johnstone snapped his fingers again, struck his hips once or twice, passed his hand through his hair, and at last cried in an intensely excited voice: “Give mc a sheet of paper, a pencil." ;    J.    G.    Butler, .Jr.,    ; Youngstown, Ohio. It was the name picked out by Lederer and the committee. The test had been successful. The mental feat over which Washington Irving Bishop had died in endeavoring to accomplish had been successfully carried out. The crowd in the rotunda of the hotel cheered the mindreader loud and long. But, what a collapse in his physical appearance! He had to be carried out. Great drops of perspiration poured down his checks, his hair was wringing wet. He was taken in tho parlors up stairs. Dr. Butler attended him and his manager. Mr. Gooding, had a glass of whisky sent to him. But then it was that really a most remarkable phase of what had truly been a marvelous exhibit, was shown. Johnstone was reviving. Ile seemed so happy to have succeeded in performing the feat that he alternately laughed like a boy and sobbed like a child. It seems that once during the trip a false halt was made. Mr. Johnstone wanted to explain how it was. And then he went through what he had watched for on the streets while driving blindfolded. HE TELLS TUE STORY OF THE DRIVE. “Once,” he said, shivering, “I saw a team. I had to turn sharp, the tongue of my carriage was going right through it. I gave a sudden twist and, fortunately, I cleared it. Then again, once a big wagon, a hay-rack or something of that sort, was driving right past me. It was loaded with barrels. I had to avoid it; it was coming right toward me.” And thus he wenton describing exactly what happened during the drive from the Auditorium. He was blindfolded all the time and under a black hood. Mr. Johnstone is a young man about twenty-six years old. smooth faced, about five feet and seven and one-half or eight inches high, and of sandy complexion. Ile came to Chicago from Michigan, where his mental feats startled all those who saw them. He is the son of wealthy parents, and does not do this thing for money or notoriety. B0ULANG1ST REVELATIONS. They Continue to Develop With Interesting- Variations. Th© Darhemi d’ I'zen’ Contribution—London Unions Refuse Aid to ftoutli-hampton Strikers — Solidity of the Triple Alliance. prevails among the south Russian grain exporters owing to the unprecedented rapid rise in the value of roubles. The whole Russian export trade is demoralized. Though the harvest is good, no doubt tho season will close with a general crash. Two southern exporters have already failed. The government policy of raising the tariff is suicidal. THE WYOMING ELECTION. London, Sept. ll.—TneBoulangist revelations continue and with variations of a most interesting character. The latest addition is the admission of the Duchess d’Uzes that she contributed 8300,000 to the campaign funds and that she brought about a meeting at her house between Boulanger and the Compte de Paris, who, she says, was disgusted with the general's lack of courage. The truth appears to be that Boulanger, who showed on more than twenty battlefields that he had plenty of physical courage, knew only too well that the army would not support him and that Saussier, the military gove rnor of Paris, had 50.000 men at his back and the most elaborate preparations made to effectually stamp out the lirst attempt to U'<- force. Through the whole series of revelations M. Na-quet figures as the man who was constantly urging Boulanger to a coup d’etat, but the old socialist's object was entirely different from Boulanger’s. The latter wanted to be a marshal under the restored monarchy with a big 'alary, while Naquet and a horde of anarchists, soeial-ists and dissatisfied radicals who made up the fighting force of the Boulangists wanted a socialistic republic with a single chamber, and would have assassinated the general on discovering his first move toward restoring the hated bourbons. RIOTERS BADLY LEFT. Many Voters Disfranchised By an Unaccountable Error in the Law. Cheyenne, Wyo., Sept. ll.—-The fir't state election in Wyoming carne off today. The utmost enthusiasm was shown, but it is doubtful if the vote will be very large. The Australian ballot system was introduced for the first time, with the registration system. Until within a few days it was understood the law contained a clause to the effect that, when through absence or illness, anybody failed to register they would be permitted to swear in their votes on eleetion day. Although a clause to this effect passed both houses of the last legislature and appear' in both journals, for some unaccountable reason it fail' to appear in the enrolled copy of the law or in the printed copy. This omission disfranchised a very large number of voters. In Isss the total vote cast was Is,HOS. Carry, republican, fur delegate in congress then received a majority of 2,942. At this hour (lo p. rn.) it is very difficult to tell much about the result. Some of the precinct' are over one hundred and fifty miles from the county seat' and comparatively little can be heard from them. The republicans claim the state by 1,500, while the democrats claim it by from SOO to 1,5<K) on the governorship. THE WAGES OF SIN.

Boise City, Idaho, Sept. ll.—White. an old frontiersman and Indian fighter. of Long Valley, near the Salmon river, has.sent a dispatch to Governor Sharp informing him that the condition of affairs among tile Nez Forces Indians at that place is alarming. The tribe is very much discontented and sullen at the treatment received, the death of braves, and loss of stock, and vow vengeance sometime on the whites. Over two hundred Indians are ramped at Meadows and a number of warriors are in war paint. People are alarmed at the hostile talk and appearances of Indians. The squaws tells settlers to be careful. The settler' having ranches are flocking to the central point in the valley. The greatest excitement prevails at Long Valley. The settlers are arming to defend themselves. Saturday one company from Boise barrack took up their line of march for Longville on a pleasure trip. Governor Sharp dispatched the captain to hasten, by forced marches, to reach Meadows as soon as possible. RESCUED FROM THE WATER. A Boat Load of Sealers Picked Up in Mid Ocean. San Francisco. Sept. ll. — The schooner Lewis arrived to-day from Behring sea with a cargo of seal skins. She picked up three boats and eleven of the crew of the schooner C. J. White, who left the lost vessel in a fog and were five days in the open boats when found. While trying to land at Cooper Island, three of them were shot, one fatally, by the natives, who thought the men were coming to kill seals. One other boat from the White with six men made a landing at Cooper Island and th** men reached here a few days ago on the steamer Karluk. Some of the men charge the captain of the White with having deliberately left them to their fate. CHURCH WORK. London Union© Refu©© Aid to Southampton Striker©. London, Sept. ll.—Southampton continues in a very disturbed 'tate. Nothing but the prompt action of the military prevented a renewal of the rioting, and many acts of violence were committed in spite of them. The arrival of two gunboats has had the effect of making the strikers withdraw th** pickets which they had in boats around th** entrance to the harbor tor th** purpose of inducing th** sailors and firemen of incoming steamers to join the strike. Th** London labor leaders have failed to respond to th** appeal for help, and the result i' great discouragement among the strikers. It is now clear that they began the strike without any preparation or assurances of outside support and their sudden resort to violence has deterred the London labor unions from giving them any assistance. Th** strikers are now hopelessly beaten. In the event of the Southampton strike continuing a week longer, several steamship companies, it is announced, will eea'e to make Southampton their terminus. The loss of patronage thus resulting will pr**v**nt any dividend being declared on the dock shares for nine years to come. Th** shares are already unsalable. Shipowners are wiring their agents to send homeward-bound vessels to other ports. The situation to-day is quieter. The police have given notice that they will prohibit all procession' by the strikers. The leaders of the strike have promised on th** part of the men to abstain from any further demonstrations. The mail 'teamer La Plata sails to-day. having engaged a fresh crew. The Morning Poxt compares th** Southampton strike with the great strikes at Pittsburg and Chicago, which resulted in disaster to life and property. The writer attributes the violence of the American strikers to the severity of the measures adopted to repress them. The American authorities are much readier to adopt summary and harsh treatment than the English ar**. There is really a better feeling between the classes here than in America, and it result' in cool and humane conduct on the part of those in power. RAILROAD MATTERS. A Humor That Gen.
