Minnkafolim, Minn., Oct., 3.—Tho
celebration of holy communion with
which tlie triennial convention of the
Episcopal church was ushered in this
morning* was the most imposing* ever
witnessed in 11 church of that denom-
ination 011 this continent. Sixty
bishops, attire.I in vestments, oc-
cupied the chancel of St. (Jethsemane,
which was brilliantly illuminated with
candles and fragrant with floral offer-
ing's. About 800 clerical and lay dele-
gates and local churchmen occupied
the pews in the body of the church,
while the front seats of the temporary
galleries were filled with the wives
and daughters of the visitors. Bishop
Tuttle, of Missouri, pronounced the
benediction. The houses of bishops
and deputies met for organization at 3

continue to insist that the bill
will pass, while the Dallas peo-
ple are equally confident that it
cannot pass, with ti'..4 emergency clause
making it immediately effective. The
advantage is with the opponents of the

New York, Oct. 3.—A special from
Trenton, X. J., to a morning paper
says: William C. Whitney, of New
York, ex-secretary of the navy, ex-
pects to be the democratic candidate
for the presidency next year. It was
on the eve of the democratic state con-
vention here last week that the in-
formation was first imparted with
authority to New Jersey democrats,
who were told that Whitney practical-
ly is assured of the nomination, with
till the eastern democratic leaders and
managers for him as well as all the
"sound money" democrats of promi-
nence in the west.
President Cleveland is for Whitney,
according to the New Jersey people.
An interview would not reveal his
preference. Hut he has committed
himself privately to his former cabinet
associate. There is a detinite under-
standing on the subject Mr. Cleve-
land will let the third-term talk con-
tinue for a while. The Whitney boom
can be nurtured and increased under
that guise. When the time is ripe
Cleveland will shatter all the hopes of
the mugwumps and third-term shout-
ers by a positive announcement of his
refusal to run.

City oi Mexico, Oct. 3.—The total
volume of the foreign trade of the
country during the fiscal year ended
June 30 amounted to $134,855,393.
This consisted of $00,854,053 in exports
and $' 4,000,440 in imports, being an in-
crease in tho total foreign trade of
over $15,000,000 compared with the
preceding year. The United States
took $67,322,0.sr> of the exports and
sent here 315,130. JJ07. The grow-
ing preponderance of American
trade here arouses the intense jealousy
of the resident European merchants,
who privately denounce the ignorant
Yankees, as they insolently term all
Americans, while at the same time
thev seek to secure the agencies of the
American manufacturers and in many
cases only for the purpose of finding
what will sell best and then having

be raised for the admission at this port
of cattle from Chihuahua and Sonora.
