HOSTOS, Jan to the rec- ords at the office of the board of health, there have been two deaths of adults in this-city since Saturday, caused by in- fluenza in conjunction with other dis- eases, making a total of six. It is the opinion, nevertheless, that la grippe has begun to abate. The report comes from iho public institutions on Deer Island that the malady has obtained a secure loothold among the inmates and is spreading. There are 100 severe cases now in the hospital and seventy-five or more outside. Less than a half dozen cases have beon reported in the police department since last week. Of the 900 post-office employes 100 are off duty. ALBANY, N. Y., Jan. grippe las spread rapidly here in the last few days and the doctors are hard pressed to seep up with the constant demands made upon them. The public depart- ments aro run with only partial forces. In the Capitol there are many empty desks. Chancellor Pierson was taken ill with the disease and the Deputy Su- )erintendent of Insurance, Mr. Rug- jles, is down with the grippe and pneu- nonia. Several heads of departments are sick. The doctors here aro certain that a majority of the cases are of the Russian type. N. J-, Jan. physi- cian in the city is busy attending pa- tients afflicted by influenza. Very few families have escaped the epidemic, but only two or three serious cases are re- jorted. Even some of the physicians ,heraselves have succumbed to it and are confined to their homes. One fatal case was reported Monday evening. It was that of MichaeOIulhall, twenty-six years old. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Jan. E.

C. Fredericksen, the land speculator and fugitive, which embodies some discoT- eries made by Mr. Cratty since he first began to probe into the peculiar meth- ods of Fredencksen i Co.

These parties are all said to have had interest in notes, mortgages orcon- iracts obtained from or through Freder- icksen, and the amended bill seeks to have the new defendants discover what relation they hold to such securities, mcstly for wild lands in the Northwest, in order that the receiver may get hold of them and apply them on Mr. Cratty's judgment.

NEW YORK, Jan. with many leading business men as to the prospects for 1890 reveal an almost unanimous belief that the year 1890 will be one of unusual prosperity. Among others whose views are reported is Mr. Erastus Wiman, who is perhaps aboutas woll posted on business conditions as any man in the country, having varied interests both here and in Canada. He has made a careful study of situa- tion. "If this year is not the most prosper- ous year in our history, great calamities which man can not forsee must occur. In all my business experiences I have not seen a more favorable outlook. From all parts of the country good neva is coming in. Nearly every great industry is reported to bo prospering, and busi- ness men appear to be in unusually pros- perous circumstances. The develop- ment of the general wealth of the coun- try has been unparalleled." Grady Monument Fund. ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 1. Grady monument fund has now reached nearly The subscriptions thus far are almost all from Atlanta. The young men of other parts of Georgia are inter- esting themselves, however, and while no returns have yet been received, the indica lions are that subscriptions fram other Georgia towns and cities will in- crease the fund to at least double the present amount. The largest subscrip- tion from the North came yesterday from the directors of the Fourth Na- tional Bank of New York, who sent a check for SoOO.____________ Street Car Strike Proves a Failure.

All of Senators were Called Into Question bj tab- Treasurer Roberts la His Testimony Retarding tba Re- lations of Canada to the United States. FtafeerlM Their Xlchlca- LumberiBM Tells How Canadian Tariff Affects Bis Business. NEW YORK, Jan. second day's session of the Senate Committee on Re- lations with Canada was hell at the Hoffman- House Tuesday. Ellis H. Roberts, United States sub-treasurer and ex-editor of the Utica Herald, was the first witness. He thought from the geographical position of the two coun- tries they must of a necessity have rival interests in the same directions. In hSs opinion the inter-State questions were important factors. All these questions bear upon the relations of trade with Canada. Yankee shrewdness would be greatly lacking if we surrendered our markets of of people to ob- tain in return those of A reci- procity witU Canada would be entirely different from one with Mexico. TLe witness slewed from statistics that in 1SSS Canaaa imported goods valued at more f-om the United States than from Great Britain. The nearness of Canada to this country more than offset the fact that Canadian goods entered Great Britain free. The feeling in jSTorthern and Central New York was very much opposed to reci- procity. The farmers of those sections would be greatly opposed to the re- moval of certain dacies upon animal starch, wheat, hay and hops. Witness was opposed to reciprocity on the ground that the United States would give every thing, receiving nothing in return. An- nexation was not to be thought of for somo years to come, and if we desired annoxation we must not give away our markets. A commercial union he thought impracticable. Charles H. Pew, of Gloucester, Mass., in the fishery business, wos next called. He gave a clear and thorough explana- tion of the Gloucester fishery business, lauded tho bravery of the crews em- ployed and furnished statistics to show that most of them were natives. Wit- ness said that there were millions of fish caught in British waters, frozen on board the vessels and brought in free of duty because they were frozen. Mr. Pew was of the opinion that if American sea- men received a suitable equivalent they would be easily formed into a naval re- serve. Fishermen were always eagerly sought-by the naity-for manMrf-Trarsorv ice. Witness concluded by bitterly com- plaining of the annoyances to which American fishermen were subjected by the Canadian government. D E. Loveland, a lumber merchant of Saginaw, Mich., said he had bought a large tract of forest land in the Domin- ion, as the rapid denuding of the forests of Michigan made such a step necessary for the preservation of his Michigan plant. The point was finally brought out from witness that if better commer- cial relations were established with Canada and the export duty be reduced, or taken entirely ofiy ogs cut in the Do- minion, he could float logs cut on his Canadian land to his mill on Saginaw river and undersell other millownors there. Though not specially anxious for annexation he would not object to it. After hearing several other wit- nesses in reference to the fishery trade, the committee adjourned. Tariff Hearings Continued. X, Jan. 1. The Ways and Means Committee yesterday listened to an argument by Robert M. Thompson, of Now York, in favor of the free im- portation of copper ore intended for ex- portation as refined copper- The com- mittee then listened to a number of gen- tlemen interested in the manufacture of glass and earthenware. J. li. Kimes, of Philadelphia, addressed the committee in favor of increasing tho duty on china clay. bj Himself to a Tree. REAJDIXG, Pa., Jan. 1. Thomas Jeffries, of Philadelphia, said to be the of a wealthy citizen of that city, committed suicide Monday night at one of the health resorts on South Moun- tain, ten miles from here. Young Jef- fries was at the resort for the benefit of his health, but becoming despondent he hanged himself to a tree about a mile from the hotel. Txlaabie Additions to the PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 1.

No- land It was running about fifty an hour. The two trains crashed to- fether, totally demolishing the and burning the baggagecar and coaches of the southbound train, which tumbled on top of engine. The injured were confined to the en- gine and express and baggage cars. George Cumnaings, engineer cf No. 14, was buried in the wreck and died imme- diately after being extricated.

A number of passengers in the coaches were shaken up badly, but the Pull- mans escaped, many of the passengers not being awakened. The cause of the wreck is a mystery, as the engineers of both trains aro both unable to testify, but the general opinion is that the north bound engineer was trying to make a "sneak" to tbo .side track at Jewel, four miles north, to pass No. 14, which was slightly behind time. A DYNAMITE BOMB In it building Occupied by Prlnt- eri. Without Jujary to Auybody. WAVKHI.Y, la., Jan Late Monday night unknown parties exploded a dyni- mite bomb in the stairway leading to the Independent printing office and the Western Union telegraph office. The bomb exploded with terrific force, de- molishing the stairway and front of tho building. The bomb was an inch and a quarter gas pipe, about a foot long, sealed at either end with several ounces of lead and charged with dynamite.
