VICTORIA'S BIRTHDAY. England's Oueen Reaches Her Seventy-thir- d Mile Post. New York, May 24. A dispatch from London says: Flags are flying from church steeples, municipal and government bui d- - ings, and hundreds of thousands of business structures and private residences in Great Britain today, and the bells in every Episco-pal church from one end of the land to the other are ringing merrily. All of this is in celebration of the fact that today her maj-esty, Victoria, queeu of Great Britain and Ireland, and empress of India, reaches the T8rd year of her existence upon this earth. A month hence the fifty-sevent- h year of her reign will commence. The" venerable sovereign, who is quietly spending -- the day at Windsor surrounded by her children and grandchildren, has been the recipient of numerous loyal addresses, and has received telegrams of congratulation from the czar of Russia, the emperor of Germany, the pre.-iden-t of the French republic, and from dearly alt of the United States ambassadors abroad. Since her return from her visit to France her majesty has been in excellent health. She has a tine constitution and lives under the healthiest conditions. Hard work and a great deal of outdoor exercise seem to suit her perfectly, and she takes Ions: drives every day in an open carriage. This after-noon, in accordance with her usual custom lor several years past, she will visit the tomb of the prince consort, and tonight there will be a family dinner at the castle. IN SESSION AT DENVER. Annual Convention of the American As-sociation of State Labor, Commissioners. Denver, Colo., May 24. The annual con-vention of the American association of state labor commissioners opened here today with Hon. Lester Bodine, state labor commis-sioner of Colorado, presiding. Among those present are F. H. Belton of Kansas, Carrol L. Wright of Washington, Charles 3. Peck of New York, an intimate and trusted friend of Senator Hill, W. A. Pelle, chief of the bureau of statistics of Indiana, and many others. The assoeiotion is composed of the commissioners and other deputies of the various states and territories which have state departments of labor. It ha been in existence for ten years, and in the exchange of ideas at its con-ventions and in the systematic gathering of statistics in regard to all phases of the labor question it has accomplished a vast amount of good, both to the employer of labor and to the employees. Among the questions which have been taken up for consideration in the various states are the child and women labor questions, the investigation of tenement house abuses, the sanitary con-dition of workshops, factory inspectors, the Chinese question, and employers' liab lities. These statistics are looked upon by the legislatures of the various states as a sound basis for legislation in regard to labor questions, and nearly all such legislation has come from their recommendations to such legislatures. It is the first convention that has been held west of the Mississippi river. A-- a CORN IN EUROPE- - Russia and Germany Take Kindly to Am-meric- Corn-pon- e and Hoe-cake- . Mr. Charles J. Murphy, the apostle of Am-erican corn in Europe, writes from St. Pet-ersburg in relation to the prospect of greatly extending the consumption of corn for hu-man food in that quarter of the globe, in Russia and Germany. He has been engaged for about five years past in the endeavor to make foreigners understand its great value, and has succeeded very well, considering the intensely conservative na-ture of the Europeans. He thinks there is reason to hope that the Germans will ulti-mately realize its value to the extent of us-ing it as much as we do at home, in propor-tion to the number of inhabitants. Of course other people would follow the exam pie, and we should then be in a fair way to realize the expectation of such a permanent European demand as to make an appreciable difference in prices here. The great impor-tance of such a movement may be inferred from a comparison, instituted by Secretary Rusk in his official report, to the effect that if wc could succeed in raising the price of our corn only five cents per bushel it would add a billion dollars to the wealth of the country iu the next ten years. The first three and a half years Mr. Murphy worked in this direction on his own responsibility and expended his own funds in th cause. Since then he has had little aid from the gov-ernment and is acting for it as special agent "for the purpose of investigating the feasi-bilt- y of extending; the demands of foregn markets for agricultural products of the United States, particularly that of Indian corn." The amount appropriated for the purpose last year was only 12500, a sum altogether inadequate to a proper carrying out of the undertaking. It is highly de-sirable that the appropriation for the coming year be more liberal. It is not improbable that if sufficient money be furnished to enable Mr. Murphy to push the work ener-getically through the next twelve months so much ground will have been gained that the matter may be left to private effort after- - ward. There are some cases in which parsi-mony is not good policy, and this may be one of them. METHODIST AND PRESBYTERIAN. Laymen are Not Luy-.vonie- A Million for Home Missions. Por.Ti.ANi, Ore, May 24. At this morn-lug'- s session of the Presbyterian general as-sembly, the committee on home missions re-ported the work done during the year. The showing was an excellent one, and created much enthusiasm. Nearly a million dollars was contributed for work of which nearly $850,000 is available. One thousand four hundred and seventy-nin- e missionaries are employed in the churches with a member-ship of 93,500, and a school attendance of Hi, 000. Omaha, May 24. Bishop Hurst presided at this morning's session of the Methodist conference. The committee on judiciary reached the conclusion that the word laymen in the discipline where it provides for lay represcntation, does not include women. After a sharp discussion this morning the conference decided to allow the Epworth league to have its own special secretary. It was decided to encourage Young Peoples' Society of Christian Endeavor and other such organizations to reorganize as a branch of the Epworth league in order to make the latter the only young peoples' society of the church. This action was however somewhat modified later on at the demand of the friends of the Y. P. S. C. E. who wanted the work of these young followers in the church recognized. The announcement made that Rev. G. A. Reedcr, of the East Ohio conference would be given $10,000 to assist in the erection of Methodist headquarters in the city of Rome caused great enthusiasm. After further action on rules to govern the Epworth league lr. J. F. Berry was chosen editor of the Epworth Herald. The report of the committee oh itinerances which recommends the abolishment of the live year limit on pastorates was then taken up and al ter a long and spirited debate the conference adopted the minority report which recommended the retention of the time limit. Hot Ark., May -- 4. The Presby-terian general assembly spent much of the morning session debating the question whether it is the duty of the church to educate the young men for the ministery. They tinally postponed action on the subject. a KEEP AWAY, KEEP AWAY. An Official "Warning from Powderly's Organ to Knights of Labor. Philadelphia. May 24. The coming issue of the official journal of the Knights of Labor will contain another large batch of warnings to workingmen to keep away from Tarious places. On2 states that Little Rock and other places in Arkansas should be shunned by every one seeking work as these places arc crowded with idle men, many of them on the verge of starvation. The cotto-n- oil mills are closed down for the summer leaving hundreds of men out of employ-men:- . Mine laborers are requested to stay-awa-from the Co'iir d'Alene mines of Idaho and from the mines at f'inevile, Kentucky, at both of which places there is a lock-out- , as well as from the mines at Huntington, Arkansas, which place is crowded with idle men. Mechanics and laborers are warned to stay away from Carthage andTorkio, Mo., Benton Harbor, Mich., and Charleston, 111. The Missouri points named, it is claimed, are flooded with men from Kansas and southern Arkansas, and much suffering caused by lack of work is unavoidable. - THE TOWNSITE CASE Sherman and Hobbs, of the Land Office. Will Decide It Within Two Days. ALL EUEEK.A IS INTEEESTFD. Orders Made by Judge Bartch Today The Blue Jay Case Interesting Melange of Court New3. Receiver Sherman and Register Hobbs of the land office are going over the testimony in the famous Eureka townsite case, and Mr. Sherman stated to a Times reporter today that a decision will be announced within a couple of days. The case is a very important one, and affects the interests of nearly all of the people at Eureka. It arose over the appli-cation of citizens for a townsite, and was opposed by T. D. Sullivan, M. L. Powers and other owners of mines o.i the ground that the area included within the application was mineral in character. The trial occupied several weeks, and the case has now been under advise-ment for a long time. All the parties X interested will be pleased to learn that a decision may be expected at so eariy a date. Whatever may be the ruling of the local official there is no doubt but that the matter will ,e appealed by the losing side to the general laud office at Washington. Probate Court. Estate of G. 1).

The Deputy Marshals are Bringing in the Knights of the Green Oloth First. ALL ABLE TO GIVE BONDS In the Sum of $500 Each to Secure Their Appearance for Trial. THE Fl RST VICTIM Was Henry Nugent, the Proprietor of a Second Sonth Street Gambling House-H- ow They View It. The ball has now fairly opened and the fun lias commenced. The report which appeared in last even-ing's Times in regard to the action of the grand jury with reference to gamblers and prostitutes only served to increase the con-sternation among that class, as it corrobo-rated the rumors to the effect that the knights of the green cloth and fcinmes de ville had been indicted by the wholesale. The morning papers, having been scooped by The Times, stood upon their dignity and had not a word to say about the matter this morning. They were evidently in hopes that there might be some mistake; but The Times never makes mistakes. The first arrest was made shortly after 1 o'clock this afternoon, when Deputy Mar-shal Charley Goodsell brought in Henry Nugent on the charge of keeping a gambling house. Mr. Nugent, accompanied by some friends, went before Commissioner Greenman, who read the complaint. "Well, it isn't as bad as murder, is it boys?" "Oh yes it is," answered one of the "boys." "If it was murder you wouldn't have any trouble to get off, but this is sim-ply h 1." The commissioner fixed the defendant's bond at 9500 to secure his appearance for trial, and Nugent was quickly released, Henry Luce and I. G. Williams becoming his sureties. The second arrest was made at 2 o'clock, and this time "Shorty," the proprietor of a gambling house on Main street, was the victim. He too gave bonds to secure his ap-pearance for trial, and was released. J. I. Sparks was the next to fall into line, and after him came Cal. S. Woods, Joe Richards, James McDtrmott, A. A. Gibson, E. K. Lathrop, Sam Reggie and James Heg- - ney, and several others will be brought in before nightfall. The warrants for the keepers of the houses of prostitution were placed in the hands of deputy marshals at 3:10 and thejr at once started out to ar-rest the following persons: Ida Walker. 222 State street; Kittie (Jap), 26 Franklin avenue; Minnie (Jap), 62 Commercial street: May Reynolds, "4 Franklin avenue; Mattie Turner, 243 South Main; Hattie Wilson, o3 Franklin avenue ; May St. Clair, Franklin avenue; Lucy Andrews, 4!) Frank-lin avenue; Jessie Blake, 166 West South Temple: Lizzie Winters, 148 Wrest South Temple; Maggie Morris, Plum alley. The gamblers generally take a gloomy view of the situation, and seem to think that a strong effort will be made to cinch them. At 4 o'clock. Deputy Marshal Cannon ar-rived with the first of the women, Kittie and Minnie, the Japs, and by this evening they will doubtless all be under arrest. - RARUS IS DEAD. The ex-Ki- of the Trotting Turf Suc-cumbs to Old Age. New York, May 24. Rarus, long known as the king of the trotting turf died ou Robert Bonner's Torry town farm Tuesday. He was 25 years old, and died of old age. At Buffalo in 187S he lowered the trotting record to 2:1.'(14 and remained kiug of the turf until October. 170, when St. Julien re-duced the mark to 2:1212. Rarus, purchased by Bonner in s70 for 36,000, has not since appeared on the turf. When 20 years old the late John Murphy claimed to have given him a trial mile in 2:11. ST. ANNS ARM, Methodist Ministers Object to its Exhi-bition in New York. S-- 9 m. MONSICNOR 0 ' R E I L L ' S ' ? "Tr Co "?t He Traces the History of the 3 adve Tells the Ministers They Knoii, jJJJj What They Are Talking About. New Yokk, May 24. At the weekly meet-ing of Methodist ministers yesterday, one of the inemhers said it was strange that Protest-ants should have stood still while a part of the alleged arm of St. Anne was exposed for worship of the ignorant in the Catholic church of St. Jean Baptiste. He thought a protest should be made. No proof, he said, existed that the d relic was reallyr what It was represented to be. Others spoke to the same effect. Monsignor Bernard O'Reill, formerly domestic prelate of Leo XIV, when told of these remarks said: "The body of St. Anne was buried, according to Ballandist in the tomb of the Blessed Virgin at Jerusalem. The legend in the south of France is that all relatives of our Lord and Virgin Mary were banished from Palestine. They took with them the body of St. Ann, and it was entombed in the subterranean chapel in the cathedral of Ant, in the south of France by the first bishop of the See, in the first century. When France was invaded by the barbarians, the entrance to the chapel was walled up and all evidences of its existence were obliterated. In A. D., 772, the vault was discovered and opened in 1he presence of Charleir agne, Archbishoi Turpin and a great company of priests and nob'e;. On the cypiess cjfiiu was inscribed: This is the bodv of St. Ann, mother of the blessed Virgin Mary.' A letter of Charlemagne to Pope Adrian J, concerning this discovery is extant. The body has been kept ever since in the Cathedra! of Apt to the great glory of the city. The relic re-cently exposed in this city came from the right arm which was sent to Rome to be kept in the monastery of St. Pan1. With re-spect to the Methodist ministers who criti-cise us, said Mr. O'Reilley. "I have, only to say they should go to the libraries and read for themselves the historical proofs of the miareulous body of St. Ann." CRIMINAL MATTERS. The Jurors in the Fitzpatrick Rape Case Fail to Agree and are Discharged. JUDGE ZANE GIVES HIS VIEWS, McKee Given Two Years to Reflect In .Reuspeck Sentenced--A- t Variance O'Neal's Oase Police Court, David Fitzpatrick has been tried twice on the charge of assaulting Mrs. Anna Hanson with intent to commit rape, and still stands innocent before the law, although he isn't in Judge Zane's estimation. The second jury remained out all of last night and was discharged this morning ou stating to the court that it was impossible, for them to reach an agreement. It is under-stood that the jury stood nine to three iu favor of the defendant. Judge Powers, Fitzpatrick's attorney, asked the court that the defendant be re-leased upon his own recognizance, pending; the third trial, but Judge Zane emphatically decliued to entertain the motion. "It seems to me," said his honor, "that a very plain caso was-mad-out against this man, and it seems to me that jurors regard their oaths too lightly." "We might try it again on Friday as x special venire has been ordered in the Cor-nell case. In view of the remarks et the-- , court the case could not be tried by the jur--' ors present." "I shall not try the case again," replied Judge Zane, severely, "jurors should have more regard for their oaths. I . will get Judge Anderson to try it." A LACK OF CONFIDENCE. In the case of O'Neal, the slayer; of young Roundy at Park ChtS Judge Powers asked that the defendant be? allowed to give bonds before a commissioner: at Park City. "Who are the commissioners there?" in-- ,' quired the court. 1 "There are some commissioners there who I wouldn't allow to approve a bond. You will name the commissioner before whom the bond is to be given. Commissioner Shields was named, and ho proved Acceptable to the court. KADDOX PLEAOS XOT Gl ILTT. Henry Raddon, the janiter who is charged with picking the pocket of Lucy Debenham was arranged and pleaded not guilty. AIDING PRISONERS TO ESCAPE, John Moore, a cripple who is charged with sending tools to the. prisoners in the county jail to assist them in escaping, pleaded not guilty. THE COON CASE DISMISSED. Prosecutor Stephens stated that Chas. S. Coon, the young man who was arrested some time ago on the charge of fornication committed with Matilda Peterson, had since married the woman, and he therefore asked that the case be dismissed. "Have you seen the parties?" inquired the court. "Yes," replied Mr. Stephens, "they are both out in the hall. I have seen their cer-tificate of marriage, and also their baby which is now a month old." "That's pretty good evidence," remarked Judge Zane. "Let the ease be dismissed." A FORGER CASE. The case of Henry Smith, the colored cook who was formerly employed by Dr. Kendall, at Port Douglas, on the charge of forging the doctor's name to a check for $350, and attempting to pass the same at the Commercial National bank, was then taken up for trial. Mr. Stephens . prosecuting and Mr. Deuney defending. The testimony showed that while the de-fendant attempted to utter the check, he did not actually pass it, and there being a var-iance between the evidence and the indict-ment, Mr. Stephens stopped the trial and was granted permission to resubmit it to the grand jury. A STRANGE CASE. Charles McKee, a good-nature- look-- , iug fellow who was arraigned on, Monday on the charge of forging the name-o- T. R. Jones and Parker or Depue to checks, then came forward and entered a1 plea of guilty. To the court the defendant stated that he WM druuk at the time he com-mitted the offenseVand didn't remerribcr any-thi- n g about it. V "Vell, you forged the name of T. Ik. Jones to a check, didh'd you?" asked Judge Zane. "It seems so," said the defendant. "And after doing that, you took the cheek" to T. R. Jones' bank and tried to cash it?" "Yes." "Well, you must have been either drunk or crazy. You don't look like a bad man, and I don't know just what to make of you." "I don't know what to make of myself." "Well, you need time for reflection. T will give you two years in the penitentiary, and I hope you will try to do better in the future." REUSPECK GETS TWO YEARS. Frank Reuspeck was next arraigned on tha charge of passing a check for $35 to which " the name of M. K. Parsons had been forged, on Mr. Desky. He pleaded guilty, but went on to state that he had bought the check from a man named Johnson. Hugh L. Glenn was then sworn, and he knocked the little tale into a cocked hat by testifying to admissions made by the de-fendant to him, in which Reuspeck stated that he was guilty. Police Court. Justice Kesler's court was not the liveliest place in the city today business being light. Jack Brown, F. E. Stanley and N. 0. Lako plain drunks were taxed $5. George Hall and Al Tuse are twb young lads who were brought up for stealing a i quarter. As they are both boys the court suspended sentence pending their good be- - havior. Tom Matthews, not officer Tom, another (man, was air.iiguel on the charge of dia- - charging fire arms in the city limirs. Tom pleaded in extenuation that he was shooting a cat. He was discharged. Criminal Notes. William Cornell, one of the three hack-ma- n implicated iu the murderous assault upon Mr. Clark, the Big Cottonwood miner, will be tried next-Frida- , and a special ven-ire has been ordered for this case. THAT GRANT LETTER. Another Witness Who Relieves it is Not Genuine. New York, May 24. General Busscy, as-sistant secretary under Tracy, is in the city. Speaking of the alleged Grant letter to Conkling he said he had excellent reasons for declaring the letter a forgery. He was In New Orleans in ISn) when Urant returned from his trip around the world and was with him a greal deal for ten days. He encouraged the efforts looking to the choice of delegates favorable to his nomination saying that his experience as president, and his travels in the old worl.l inr.de him feel desirous of another term in the White house in order that he might be enabled to carry out certain plans w hich he had in mind. In all the conver-sations he never uttered a word that would harmonize with the sentiment contained in this letter. His visit to New Orleans was in 1S80, just a month before the letter sup-posed to have been written. CAUSE OF A QUEER SENSATION. Danger of Katlng Ice Crentn Qnlckly in Hot Weather Its Physical KfTect. During the scorching weather of July and August you rush into an ice cream saloon with the avowed intention of cooling your body to at least a few degrees below the melting point. If you are in a great hurry, says the t, you are apt to make the first few spoonsful of the cooling mix-ture rather large. This almost immediately gives you a violent pain in the temples or somewhere in the region of the eyes. Why is this ? Did you ever stop to think? One who has studied the physiology of the case says that it is caused in the following manner: The frozen mixture, coming in contact with the nerves of the throat (the larynx, pharynx, etc.) tem-porarily paralyses them. The sensation instantly shoots to the center of those nevrcs, which is in the brain, but finds there a side connection in the shape of the great facial nerve, which starts from in front of the ear and extends its branches over the sides of his face. One branch of this facial nerve, extending across the temple, is a "nerve of sensation," while the other bran-ches arc simply "nerves of motion," utilized chiefly to govern the play of the mouth. This great facial nerve side-track- s the pain which proceeds from the chill, throwing it out along the nerve branch which traverses the temple, the pain being most agonizing at the points where the ner.ve branches. If the irritation be extraordinary the "reflex" ac-tion which takes place may cause a violent pain in the eyeballs as well as in the temple, the eye pain being simply sympathetic. The person who rashly swallows great mouthfuls of frozen milk should remember that every time it comes in contact with the nerves of his throat the whole nervous sys-tem is injured to a greater or less extent. . . BUNCO MAN O'BRIEN. He Walks Away From the Paris Police and I" ails to Kc?turn. Paris, May 24 It is learned that Thomas O'Brien, the noted American bunco man, was arrested at Havre on ins arrival from New Orleans on a telegram from Secretary Blaine, but the police, despite the warning that he was a dangerous man, allowed him to take a walk and he has not been seen since.

The Former Salt Laker Mentioned for the California Senatorship. The last issue of the San Francisco Wasp contains biographical sketches and portraits of the California delegation to the republi-can convention. The genial countenance of Colonel Isaac Trumbo looms up alongside that of Chairman Spenee, and of the former Salt Laker the Wo. 6ays: "One of the youngest, but by no means one of the least distinguished of the Califor-nia delegates who will go to Minneapolis, is Colonel Isaac Trumbo, alternate delegate-at-large- . Colonel Trumbo has taken a very prominent place in the political and busi-ness affairs of the Pacific coast for a man of his years. He has been identified with a number of most important enterprises and is regarded as a financier of great sagacity nd a man of extraordinary executive ability. Added to this the dashing and handsome young colonel has all the qualities that go to make a popular as well as a successful man, so that the future has unquestionably brilliant possibilities in store for him.

MINING MATTERS OF INTEREST. Points About the Great Western Industry in I'tah and Elsewhere. The Silver club at Hailey, Idaho, now numbers nearly 400 members, and is steadily growing. This is a fine showing for a club not over a mouth old. Another very rich mining discovery is re-ported to have been made at Needles, Cal. Several miners have gathered good fortunes with no bettjr methods of reduction than the mortar and pestle. Prof. O. C. Mortson has prepared a report of the coal output of the state of Montana for 1SJ11. He estimates from the best avail-able statistics, that the production for last year was 582,000 short tous. The business has increased in the past three years about 14 per cent. The Rico-Aspe- n Consolidated Mining com-pauy- , owning thuty-tiv- e mines and 1,000,000 acres of land at Rico, Colorado, has made a rich silver glance strike. Several small miners have encountered similar deposits, and Rico is reported to be enjoying the greatest silver boom of any place in the state since the days of booming Leadville. Senator John P. Jones, of Nevada, is a silver man. "Because silver is as ancient and honorable a metal as gold, and equally-wel- l adapted for the moneyr use, and for the further reason that looking at the annual yield from the mines, the entire supply that can come to the mints will at no time be more than is needed to maintain at a steady level the prices of commodities among a constantly increasing population." W. H.James of the Omaha and (irant smelter, in Denver, has been studying the waste of ores by the old process, and has succeeded in inventing a new dust chamber, which will add about 1 per cent to the mat-ter now saved by the old process. It is built of perforated tiling. It is pronounced one of the most valuable discoveries of the age, and it is estimated will make a saving ot $100,000 a year. The 6tate of Nebraska will hold a grand silver anniversary celebration at Lincoln on the 26th last. Elaborate preparations are being made for z grand display. A fine sil-ver souvenir will lie given to the cityr bring-ing in the finest float. J. C. Harpman will prepare the medal, and silver will be crowned on the great silver day of the land of corn. Nebraska people have an eye for value and beauty as is evidenced by select-ing silver as the metal for a souvenir. The Martha Washington Placer Mining company has been organized at Oakland, Cal. The company consists entirely of females, and according to the articles, no man is permitted to take stock in the com-pany. The capital stock is $500,000, with $20,500 paid up, and is held by the following ladies: Mrs. S. G. Smythe, Mrs. J. E. Wat-son, Mrs. Mary H. Kennedy, Mrs. A. N. Griffiths, Mrs. . S. Morse and Mrs. J. K. Burrall. Considerable curiosity exists among the male miners as to whether or not female labor only will be employed. B. F. White of Dillon, Mon-tana, recently returned from an extended eastern trip. He concludes that the com-mercial transactions of Chicago and other eastern cities are on the increase at a rapid rate of fully 25 per cent per annum. He says; "The present supply of gold, the pro-duction of which is falling off, will not be at all sufficient, and when this becomes ap-parent, the gold bugs will be forced, through absolute necessity, to recognize silver, but until this time comes, silver will be ignored. The east is prejudiced against silver, and the merchants will ask for one paper note in preference to a silver dollar. General A. McD. McCook and a staff of military officers accompanied by troop D of the second cavalry, has entered the Carrizo country in New Mexico ou a prospecting tour. General McCook constitutes one of the commission appointed to investigate and report as to whether minerals exist in the mountains controlled by the Navajo Indians. A company of Indians travels with the com-mission and acts as couriers. The messen-gers as to make the distance from Fort Win-gat- e to the camp, 135 miles distant, in twelve hours.

Speaking of statehood, Ellis is credited with saying: "The men who went to Washington last autumn and started the home rule and state-hood agitation have done Utah much harm. Things were working excellently, and if those fellows had stayed at home chances for statehood today would have been good. There are too many men in Utah who want office. If the territory could take an emetic and get rid of a number of politicians it would be a good thing. But Utah is a grand country, and in spite of all unrest it will get its proper place in the union before long, and then Colorado will find by her side a powerful ally in all matters concerning the welfare of 'silver' states." . m .
