Not a Representative Body As-
sembled in Washington.


The Leaders Are Try Ing To Hedge and
Get Back Into the Party Lines.
The Platform Is Expected
To Be a Very Mild One.

(Special to the' Citizen.)
Washington, D. C., Aug. 14.-After
several hour& spent behind closed doors,
the conference of Democratic silver
leaders adjourned this afternoon with-
out having accomplished anything
more than the appointment of a com-
mitte to decide upon the plan they are
to pursue In the great work of captur-
Ing the national convention. As the
undertaking is a great one, It Is but
natural that the promoters of the
:movement should require time for pre-
paration, but the real cause of to-day's
inactivity seems to have been due In
a great measure to the general doubt
on the part of the conferes concerning
the exact purpose they have In view
and the methods they must adopt to
secure their object.
The character of the gathering was
not improved this morning by the ar-
rival during the night, and justifies
the assertion that it should not be re-
garded as a representative body of
Democrats. There are men present
with national reputations, and* men
holding high official positions, but these
are vastly in the minority. The ma-
jority of those present are self-consti-
tuted delegates.
Quite a percentage of the members
of the conference are residents of this
city, who have maintained sufficiently
close relations with the States from
which they came to retain a vote. Some
of these men were brought into the con-
ference for the purpose of swelling the
number of States represented. A no-
gable instance of this play for effect is
wthe case of ex-Representative Silas
'Hare of Texas. Mr. Here has been
|practicing law here for a long time,
'and appeared at the Metropolitan Ho-
*tel this morning merely to witness the
,gathering of silver men. He was
pressed into service, and was made
'the representatives of the Lone Star
IState upon the committee that is to
-direct the campaign.
An Objectionable Repreaentative.
"lEx-Sergeant-at-Arms Yoder, who has
-also lived In the city for several years,
was present to represent the State of
Ohio, and was also made a member of
thelcommittee. Mr. Yoder is cne of the
,;chief officers, of the Silver Kn1ights.-,pf

desire to place the country upon a sil-
ver basis. They are still ardent silver
advocates, and, if their statements are
to be believed,, they expect to win the
-fight they are engaged in. They are
willing, however, to concede that if a
majority of the party Is against them,
their duty is to support the platform
the party adopts.
Probably no better evidence of the
subsidence of the silver craze can YBe
furnished than the moderate tone as-
sumed by the leaders of the conference,
while the lack of interest in its proceed-
Ings on the part of t'he Democrats, so
generally manifested in the small and
unimportant attendance, emphasizes
the fact.
Silverltes Are Hedging.
While holding that they have not
been in the slightest danger of leaving
the party, and that the gold men have
really been the only ones who were
endeavoring to disrupt the organiza-
tion, the leading men present in the
conference reaffirm their allegiance to
silver, but say that they were Demo-
crats before they% were silver men.
Representative Jones of Virginia said:
"I do not apprehend the slightest dan-
ger of a split in the party over the
money question. Some of the gold men
might leave if a silver plank 'were
placed in the platform, but the silver
Democrats will abide by the decision
of the convention. I will support the
nominee of the party, no matter who
he Is."
Representative Otey made a similar
statement: "Democrats have had dif-
ferences before;" he said, "and there
Is no danger that 'the present dispute
will break up the organization. I am
a Democrat under all circumstances."
Representative* Livingston says that
free silver is demanded by the South,
and that it will carry in Georgia.. while
Senator Walsh talks in a similar strain.
Senator Call and his faithful attend-
ant, James Alexander, were present to
represent Florida, as was also Mr. J. S.
Baird of Pensacola. The latter made
the following statement regarding the
silver sentiment in the State:
"Florida would be for free silver on
a fair vote. for as far back as 1892 the
State convention declared for free coin-
age. The trouble is that our opponents
control the primaries, and we are not
permitted to have a fair deal. They
are in control of the machinery, and
they run the primaries to suit them-
selves and to shut out all others." ,
The Meeting in Detail.
Washington, D. C.. Aug. 14.-The cor-
ridors of the Metropolitan Hotel were
crowded early to-day with delegates
to the conference of silver Dem:,ocrate.
called to meet here for the purpose or
agreeing& upon a line of policy to I.e
pursued in the interest of silver in th.e
Democratic Party. While the call for
the conference, issued by Senators'Har-
ris, Turple, and Jones of Arkansas, diR
not specify the hour. the meeting was
postponed until noon.
The forenoon was spent in a general
exchange of %'ievs and in formulating
plans for the meeting. There is n.
rather large attehdance6 and the hotel
was crowded by delegates andl silver
symlpathlze'rs. The leaders of the'
"movement were. anxious to correct the
.impression that it was intended the
meeting should be, a mass convention.

Says He Will Crush the Insurree-
tion Before Next Spring.
(E-y Associated Press.)
London. England. Aug. 15.-The Ha-
vana correspondent of the Times tele-
graphs to that paper as follows:
Since his arrival here. Captarn-Gen-
eral Martinez de Campos has received
deyputations from all political parties.
His personal popularity makes every-
b,:,dy glad to welcome him. Address-
ing- tlih reformists, he said that the rev-
olution wouMd probably develop fur-
ther before the finale. Addressing the
autonomists, he said that it was his
intention to begin an active campaign
in September against the insurgents in
the Province of Santa Clara. after-
ward to attack the Irebels in Puerto
Principe. and lastly those in Santiago de
Cuba. He promises that the next mu-
nicipal elections should be absolutely
free. and that he would personally rec-
tify any case of coercion reported to
him. I
In the course of a private conv'ersa-
tion. Marshall Campos expressed the
opinion that d:lissension among the lead-
ers wouM weaken the insurgent forces.
and:l that the rebellion would be crushe>:d
before spring, but there is a persistent
rumor in circulation that he has cabled
Ma,:lrid that only two courses are open
to Spain. namely, either to send 10P.-
000 troops to Cubca or to grant the
is]n,:l complete al autonomy.
The report that the Alcalde of Sancti
Espiritu has joine:l the rebellion is in-
correct. '*
The average number of deaths from
yellow fever among the troops for the
last few weeks has been 120 daily.
Jose Maceo has lived for the past
three months on a coffee est-ate between
Santiago de Cuba and. Guantanamo.
The Government is aware of this. but
no attempt has been made to attack
The insurgents of this district levy
fines from $500) to $l,00,) on plantations.
Maceo has been resuplied with am-
munition from an tiunknown source.

Within the party lines qnly, Mr. Yoder,
as one of the, Silver Knights, would
seem to have buqt little smypathy with
the purposes of the meeting.,
Several members of the Virginia. dele-
gation are residents of this city, and
-though this delegation is the strongest
in representative 'men, it was thought
necessary, probably for the purpose of

-numbers from the Virginians living in

".Notwithstanding all this, and the
small aitendance, the .leaders of the
movement claim to be thoroughly satis-
,fled with, the assemblage. The whole
power' of the conference, so far as its
action is concerned, has been delegated
to the committee on resolutions, and the
failure"of the committee to submit a re-
port to-day is due to their inability to
decide just how the cause of silver can
best, be advanced without hurting the
,standing of the members with th44 Dem-
ocratic Party.

A Prisoner Escaped from a
Steamer During Confusion.


The Man Either Went Ashore Safely
or Is at the Bottont of the Sound.
He and His Pal Were
Charged with Robbery.

(By Asscociated Preps.)
New York, N. Y., Aug. 14.--Detective
Sergeant Lawrence Delehanty ,,of Brook-
1l"n. who went to Boston to get two
men supposed to be thieves who en-
ticed Dr. Drury of that city into a
Vacant house and robbed him, got back
to-day, tout brought only one prisoner
x ith him. The other man made .hisl
escalpe by jumping off the Fall River
Line boat Puritan.
The man who got away was Edward
Warren Ball. 35 years old. who, lived
with his father at W,)nodlaven, L. I.
the one who (ldid nol escape is Samuel
B. Ryles of Philadelphia. Both said
that they were traveling salesmen.
The escape, Detective Delehanty said.
took Place as the Puritan was pulling
into Newloy,,rt. There was a very
dense fog. Dehelanty says the Puri-
tan struck somethhig. The cry "col-
lision" went up from .the passengers.
The excitement was intense. Women
screamed, and all rushed excitedly to
and fro. Delehanty was knocked back
and Ball pitched forward. The shock
broke his grip on Ball's arm. but he
still held to Ry-les. Ball. seeing his
chance. darted through the crowd. He
is a tall. musc-ulariv built fellow, and
very athletic. Delehanty tried to fol-
low. dragging Ryles along; but Ball
was t-,oo swift.
Delehanty saw him as he turned at
the foot ,of the stairs toward the main-
deck. From that pyoLnt all trace was
lost. Delehanty hastened to the gang-
way. got the officials of the ship to:,
watch out. and locked Ryles in the
stateroom. All night he kept up the
search. but Ball, could not be found.
The Puritan. after the contact, came
tv a stop. When the fog lifted the
officers turned the ship and struck a
dock. If Ball got off the shipl on that
he probably made an easy escape to,
the shore. If not. he nay ,,now be at
the bottom of the sound.

duce shipped from this section during
the past two years, and the rates upon
the same. The; vegetable growers from
points on the Florida Southern will
,meet in this city on Saturday and make
an effort to come to a definite under-
standing as to what methods to per-
sue in going before the Interstate Com-
mission. The farmers are not suffer-
:ing from excessive freight rates so
.much as they are from competition. In
years gone by the vegetable growers

was before the industry was well under

Ocala, Aug. 14.--tere seems to be
quite a difference of opinion among the
phosphate people in regard to the prop-
er methods to be employed for the
profitable marketing of the product of
the mines and ,the best manner in
which to secure such prices as will pay
a fair profit on the outlay of capital
There -are many miners who will not
enter, or have not entered, into the va-
rious organizations that are endeavor-
ing to limit the supply which just
now seems much greater than the de-
mand. The initial object of the organ-
izations was to close the mines for a
number of months. Notwithstanding
this, ,several mines have resumed oper-*
ations within the past week or ten
days, .the principal one of these being
the Dunnellon, which is now working
about 100 men.

Mr. Skidnmore Is Successful in His
Ensilage Experiment.
(Special to the Citizen.)
Orlando, Aug. 14.-R. H. Skidmore of
Clarkona has put up a large. Silo this
summer and has it well filled with en-
silage. The advantage that this meth-
od of curing forage has over hay mak-
ing is that the crop can be put up in
any kind of weather, and much can be
saved during the rainy season that
would be lost in an attempt to cure the
crop for hay. Mr. Skidmore has been
quite successful in former years on a
limited scale, and this success has in-
duced him to attempt a larger sized
silo. He may be leading Florida farm-
ers into a way which will result in
greater profits to them inasmuch as it
will work a great saving in the matter
of feed.

Colonel Says He Will Give the
Paper an Opportunity of
Proving Its Charges.

(Special to the Citizen.)
Pensacola, Aug. 14.-A sensation was
produced in the city yesterday when
it was known that the Sheriff had serv-
ed papers on Dr. W. E. Anderson, James
McHugh, John B. Vaughn, A. C. Berry,
and Thomas Johnson, as owners, and
E. A. Crawford as editor, and Jeff L.
Davis, as business manager of the Pen-
sacola Times In a libel suit brought
against them by Messrs. Blount &
Blount, attorneys for Hon. W. D. Chip-
ley, in the sum of $25,000. In an Inter-
view with a reporter Colonel Chipley
furnished the following information re-
garding this suit:
"How did you get the names of the
owners?" asked the reporter. "It has
heretofore been a mystery."
"I believe," said Mr. Chipley, "that
they were secured from an, affidavit of
J. D. Wolfe, who, having been sued for
an obligation of the Times, made affi-
davit. in a Justice's Court that the per-
sons named were trustees and owners."
"But," said the reporter, "they might
have sold out."
"Maybe so," responded Colonel Chip-
ley, "but not being incorporated, they
are partners, of course, and in the ab-
sence of public notice of dissolution of
partnership, it may be that a dissolution
does not amount to anything. It may
be that other partners may be uncov-
ered before we get through."
"But can't you give us the substance
of the declaration in the case?" persist-
ed the reporter.
"No, sir; I can't give you anything.
see my. lawyers. This newspaper has
asserted time and again that Florid-
lans, and especially Pensacolians,i
should know all about 'Chipley's char-
ter fraud', as the paper designates it,
and has published a direct charge-al-
though the statement originated with
Abrams-that Chipley, Healy, Dough-
erty, and Triay raised a $12,000 corrup-
tion fund to influence the Legislature
In the Senatorial contest of 1891. I

paper controversy with these peoplOe,
but will give them an" opportunity to
prove their charges before the courts of

settle nothing, but judicial investiga-
tions,are made under oath.

The Industry Flourished at Pisa in
Classic Times.
From the Chicago Times-Herald.
Thirty-two miles to the southeast of
Pisa, in the province of that name, a
very remarkable and very ancient in-
dustry is carried on, says the London
Daily News. We refer to the alabaster
industry, of which a full description
from actual observation is given by
Vice Consul Carmichael of Leghorn in
a foreign Post Office report just issued.
Volterra, where the alabaster is found,
enjoys special distinction among places
in the world which produce, that com-
modity. The material, which is of five
main varieties, is found in nodules, em-
bedded in huge masses of limestone.
At the end of each cavern whence it is
extracted two or three men are to be
seen working away with small T-shaped
picks by the dim light of unprotected
oil lamps of Etruscan pattern, which,
by a singular tenacity of tradition, are
still in use in this district. In one case
the block of alabaster will be already
well protected from its bed of lime-
stone, and the operator is carefully'
picking away all around it in order to
extricate the complete block. The
larger the specimen the more valuable
it is in proportion to its weight. In
another, search is still being made for
the alabaster, and the workman is vig-
orously beating down the wall of lime-
stone until he lights upon the white
nose of what looks like a, block. He
then picks away carefully, so as not to
injure the prize. When. there seems a
likelihood of a large quantity of lime-
stone having to be. removed, blasting
with gunpowder is resorted to.
The alabaster industry dates back to)
classic times. Great changes have tak-
en place in it, however, within living
memory, In former days there were
three distinct classes, of workmen en-
gaged in the work of fashioning the
raw material-the master artist, who
owned a workshop and employed nu-
merous workers, selling his products
direct to the alabaster shops or "gal-
leries'"; the journeymen and the trav-
elers, men who took huge 'cases of the.
goods and sold them as they went along
in all the countries of the world, civ-
ilized and uncivilized. Of these, two
the master worker and. the traveler,
are now extinct species. Nowadays
three men, usually relatives, work to-
gether in informal partnership, one be-
ing a turner. another a modeler. and
the third : a decorat,:,r, who carves such
decorative a,:djuncts on the finished ar-
ticles as fruit and flowers. Their gains
are very small. and, indeed. travelers
wh, put in at the p)ort of Leghorn and
have alabaster vases, statuary and the
like offered at_almost ahsiud~u-.i :
-; ^^i..-"-T"ci'L'-"'r7--frT-n'i'[I ,- '.
One kind of alabaster is made by a-
process of dyeing, which is still a trate
secret, into an excellent imitation of
c6ral. For a time this had a very large
sale, but the trade is now threatened
with extinction. It is suggested that
the people of the East, who used to buy
it largely, left off doing so, as they were
doubtful Whether the sham article
could be properly used in the religious
rites wherein a coral plays a part. The
alabaster. workers have' true artistic
characteristics, but in their desire,* to
turn out what they think will sell they
neglect the .fin'e models that are to be.
found in such profusion in the churches
of Italy and flood't'he market with eter-
nal productions of a limited number-
of classical figures and with flashy
modern dancing girls, coquettish div-
ing girls, faultlessly clad pifferari, and
impossibly spruce lazzaroni.
-We Have Nothing Like It in These
Western Regions.
Tokyo Letter in Chicago Times-Herald.
The Japanese memory is one of the
wonders of the country. For example,
it is the custom to number the houses
on a street in what you may call their
chronological order, instead of their
sequence; that is, in the order of their
erection, so that No. 11 may join 999, on
one side and No. 70 on the other. No.

1 may be three miles from No. 2 and No.
10 midway between them. In the city
of Tokyo there are 1,330 streets, and by
-the last census 318,320 houses, which are
divided into fifteen ku, or wards. When
a street passes.through more than one
ward the houses are numbered inde-
pendently, so there may be five or six
numbered 20 and eight or ten numbered
2-perhaps miles apart. Therefore when
a stranger sets out to find No. 217 Moto-
mara Machi, which is the name of the
street, and Azubu, the name of the
" ward, in whichour friend, Tsuda Sen,
who was a commissioner to the. Chi-
cago Exposition, lives, he might as well
look for a needle in a haystack.
After~hunting for three or four hours
and finding seven or eight houses with
the same number- on the. street six or
eight miles apart, he will -sit down in
the nearest tea house and cry or curse,
as the case my be, until he gets cooled

,off. Then he will hire a jinkrisha man.
write the ad~dres~s ,on a piece of paper,
and go whirling up and down streets
and alleys, around corners and through
short cuts until he is landed at the
proper place without the slightest phy-
sical, mental, or moral damage. '
The jinrikisha men are cookies, with-
out education or mental training. M'0st
of them can read and write, the
names, of streets and men and mer-
chants, and factories. They know the.
location and ithe number of everyone
,of the 318,320 houses, in Tokyo and the
name -of almost everyone',of the 1,500,-
000 inhabitants. They are very seldom
puzzled to find ,an address, ,even though
it may be given Incorrectly, and if you
will tell them accurately where you
want to go they will'take you. without
he, slightest delay or hesitation.
The same phenomenal memory ap-
pears in other classes of !the people,
and you have to be careful about tell-,
ing a Japanese gentleman the same
story twice. This is the result of cen-
turies of training. But the reasoning
powers have had -no such exercise.

Sullivan Cathron Explains How He
Came To Fire a Building. "
(Special to the Citizen.)
DeLand, Aug. 14.-The Volusia Coun-
ty Criminal Court of Record convened
in regular term yesterday. There is
an unusually heavy docket, and Judge
Stewart started the work off with a
rush, being determined to expedite
business as much as possible so as to
reduce expenses.
The first case called created some-
thing of a sensation. It was the case
of the State vs. Sullivan Cathron, ar-
son. On April 7th last a building at
Tomaka in this county, used as a dwell-
ing, a Post Office and a store, and oc-
cupied by the store keepers family, was
destroyed by fire. The origin of the
fire was a mystery until a few weeks
ago, when circumstances pointed
strongly to the man Sullivan Cathron
as the incendiary. He was arrested
with a man by the name of Owens as
accessory before the fact. It was im-
possible to secure evidence against
Owens., and a nolle" prosequi was en-
tered in his case.
Cat'hron Had No Counsel.
When Cathron was arraigned he did
not appear to appreciate the gravity
of the charge against him. He said he
had no counsel and no money to em-
ploy one, and asked the Court to assign
counsel. He finally changed his mind
and, notwithstanding he was informed
that the penalty for the arson of a
dwelling was life imprisonment in the
penitentiary, he entered a plea of guil-
ty, and asked to be allowed to make
a statement in extenuation.
This request was granted, and his
statement was to the effect that a few
nights before the building was burned,
a man by the name of Winn, who is
rather prominent, and is well thought
of, came to his house, which was a
few hundred yards from the building
burned, and told him if he did not come
to the store the Sunday night follow-
ing and assist him to burn the house
and rob the store, he,would kill him
on sight.
I Cathron claimed that. the threat
caused him to be particeps criminis,
anrd. for this reason implored the mer-
cy of the court. He further stated
that at the point of a pistol Winn made
him enter the store and -remove the
goods afterward found in his (Cath-
ron's) possession. After the robbery
had been committed, Cathron-says that
Winn entered, the store, secured a can,,
of kerosene, poured it on the building,
and applied a match. An information
hasbeen filed against Winn, but as
Cathron has made more than one state-
ment in reference to his accomplices
and principals, the\ truth of his last
charge is doubted.

The latest big log raft experiment on
thePacific coast has proved a big suc-
cess, the first entire success in the-his-
tory of such attempts. The, raft was
built in the Columbia River, and con-
tained between six and seven million feet
of lumber. It was made of piles so close-
ly bound together that not a timber in
the whole great bulk was movable.
The raft was started from Oregon late
in July, in tow of the steamer Mineola,
and arrived in San Francisco on Aug.
2, after as, smooth a trip as though it
had floated down a placid riyer instead
of over a considerable stretch of the
Pacific Ocean. It would have taken
several score of ships to transport the
lumber, and the owners of / the raft
have cleared something like $22,000 by
the success of -the experiment. Several
similar rafts have been started on a,
similar trip, but while one or two have
been a modified success, several of the
largest have gone to pieces in stormy
weather, and been a total loss. ,

,Conditions for the Week Ended
August 12.


All Cereal and Food Products Are in
Good Condition, but Cotton Con-
tinues Unsatisfactory Over the
Greater Portion of the State.

The Florida Weather Service has
sent out the following bulletin of the
condition of weather and crops for
the week ended August 12.
While rainfall for the State has been
,fairly general, the amount was less
than for previous week. Showers were
well distributed, excepting over sec-
tion of Volusia and Hillsboro Counties.
Over sections of this -territory copious
rains would be ,acceptable, though at
this time nothing is suffering for lack
. of moisture_ .All cereal -and food prod-
ucts are s;Alsfaotory. Cotton, as ad-
'vices indicated for last week, contin-
ues unsatisfactory over the greater
portion of -the State cotton belt. Fall
and winter vegetable planting is being
pushed with a propitious outlook at
Western District-The rainfall over
the district was markedly less than pre-
vious week. In fact it can be said that
the week was a seasonable one, and all
-crops are doing finely with the excep-
tion -of cotton, which continues in an
unsatisfactory state over the greater
.porlon of the district. Fodder pulling
has been finished; hay being housed.
Sweet potato crop good and plentiful.
The corn crop is exceptionally fine.
Northern District-Temperature av-
eraged nearly normal, with a deficiency
in moisture. As a whole, the conditions
were more favorable than during the,
preceding week. Cotton is reported as
improving in Suwannee County, though
still unsatisfactory in Baker and Mad-
ison, where -shedding and rust reports
-dominate. The only county reporting
the need ,of moisture 'is Nassau, and
this ,deficiency is confined to the high
lands. Fodder saved in very good con-
dition in Alachua County. Potatoes,
peas, and pin'ders doing well. The
sweet potato crop is unusually large,
and many sections are putting some in
:market. Peaches and other fruits are
getting ,scarce ,in some sections. Cane
promising, with ,.a flattering outlook
.for rice. -One correspondent states that
corn in Madison County is the best in
its history.
Central District-The week has been
.generally seasonable and good work has
been done in housing fodder and hay.
The regular and special corn ,reports
-show that the yield will be large, as a
-correspondent says: "There will be
plenty of meal in the State. Rice on
hammock lands is doing exceptionally,
well. There is a large crop in pros-,
:pect for Orange County, where advices
show the grain to be heading heavily.
'In the future this will be one of the
-staple crops of the county, Sweet po-
tatoes, field peas, eggplants, and. late
vegetables satisfactory. Active prep-

Witnesses Testified That They Went
to the House for the Purpose of
Securing Evidence Against It.
Statement of the Defendant.

The continued case of Mrs. J. Irene
Adams, charged with being the keeper"
.of a disorderly house, came up'before
Judge Willard at the Municipal Court
yesterday morning, and resulted in the
imposition of a fine of $10.0
Several witnesses were examined by
the prosecution yesterday morning, aNl
of which went to show that the house
was being used for immoral purposes.
The evidence was much the same as
that which was given on the previous
day, and was very plain. It was,.
elicited from two of the witnesses that
they went to the house for the purpose
of securing evidence to convict the pro-
prietress of it.
Mrs. Adams, the defendant, made a
short statement, in which she said that'
she purchased the property in March.
1893, and that in January of last year
she rented it to a Mrs. Townsend, who
came here from St. Louis. Mrs. Town-,
send ran it for a short time, after which"
Mrs. Adams again assumed possession
of it, and it was afterwards rented to
Mrs. Lillie Townsend of this city, who
continued to run it until May 7. No
statement was made by the witness in
refutation of the charge that the place
was being used for immoral purposes.
Judge Willard stated that the evi-
dence was sufficiently plain to need no
argument by the lawyers, but sho-rt ad-%
dresses were made by Colonel Walker
for the prosecution and Colonel Pope
for the defense.
Colonel Pope endeavored to show that
the charge against the defendant had
not been proven, but that the test[-
mony had been rendered for another
charge than the one set forth in the af-
fidavit. Colonel Walker wanted the de-
fendant sent to jail instead of a fine,
and thought that the case warranted
such punishment.
Judge Willard, before passing upon
the case, stated that he thought the
evidence was sufficient to cause a fine
to be imposed, and he therefore fined -
the defendant $100 or three months in,
the City Jail.
A motion for a new trial was mi-
and overruled, and the case was t
appealed. A bond of $225 was made
and signed, and the defendant was

Peace Reigns in Oniaha.
(By Associated Press.)
Omaha, Neb., Aug. 14.-The day
passed without any outbreak in the
Police Board muddle. The rival boards
arranged a conference this morning,
and after several hours' session it was
announced that the old Fire and Police
Commissioners refused any compro-
mise, except on the basis of permitting
the Supreme Court to pass on the sit-
uation. The A. P. A. commission con-
sented, and it was agreed that the old
commission should continue to con-
duct the offices of the city until a de-
cision sh-all have been rendered in. the
case. Chief Justice Nevil of the Su-
preme Court announced late this even-
ing that a special session of court
would be -held to-morrow to settle the
Omahia police case.

Before He Would Accept Any of
Judge W. B. Owen's Brick.
Judge W. B. Owen, who. was quoted
in yesterday's Citizen in the report of
Tuesday's' meeting of the Board of
Public Works as having made the
statement that J. R. Scott, architect
and superintendent of the City Build-
ing,' had refused to allow his brick. to
go Into the structure unless he paid
$100 to Mr. Scott, was seen yesterday by
aE Citizen representative.
Judge Owen, stated that a slight error
had been made in the reported state-
ment, inasmuch as the demand of Mr.
Scott was made, to him in a negative
and not a positive form. Judge Owen
"Mr. Scott, as superintendent of the
building, refused.to accept three lighter
loads of brick that.1 had sent for use
in the construction of the building, ,un-
der my contract with the Knoxville
Building and Contracting Company,
contractors for the building. I went to
him and asked him why he refused to
receive the brick. H4 replied that I
.would have to 'see' him, and that he
would have to be 'fixed' if I wished to
have the brick accepted. I asked him
if he meant that I was to pay him ,$50,
$75, or $100 tot accept the brick. He de-
clined to specify any figure, but said
that he would inspect all the brick that
entered into the construction of the
building, and that if I wished to have
my brick accepted I would have to
'see' him: occasionally as the lighter
loads were received. I told him that
if he meant I was to pay him money
to accept the brick that I didn't propose
to do business in that way, that I had
lived in the city for nearly twenty
years, and that I didn't intend to en-
gage in any underhand business at
this late day. It was, not that the
brick were inferior in any way, ,upon
which his refusal to accept them was
based, but that he intended to reject all
of my brick unless I would 'see' him."
Judge Owen stated further that. this
was, in substance, the statement he, had
made to Mr. Clarkson and Mr. Cashen,
members of the Board of Public'TWorks.

Little Business Was Transacted Yes-
terday Afternoon.
A very short meeting of the Board
of Trade was held yesterday afternoon,
and very little business wa's transacted.
Those who were present were: Dr.
A. iS. 'Baldwin, president; C. H., Smith,
secretary; A. B. C-o.mpbell, 0. 6L. Keene,
W. S Wrare. M. Corse. W". P. Gifford.

The ,cmmit tee that was appointed
at a pireiots iieeting to secure hcot-l
rates for the National Editorial Asso-
clatipn repo;t.1d ,.t hIatt figures of from


States in the next 100 years. I believe
that hemlock and oak bark costs in the
North about $12 per ton.
"The third product I will mention is a
fibrous plant that grows luxuriantly
In Florida, known as ramie. It has a
fiber as strong and as fine as silk. It
is used both with silk in making the
finest of fabrics, and alone, as I have
seen from manufactured specimens in
the Agricultural Department in Wash-
Ington. Ramie Is exported from China
and Japan in a coarse fabric known as
grass cloth. The raw fiber sells at
the North and in the European markets
at $300 to $350 per ton. This fiber
comes principally from China and
Japan, where it is prepared by hand for
the market. But a machine has been
invented by a Louisiana man to produce
it more cheaply.
"The last product that I will mention
(there are hundred of others worthy or
notice) is wine. A, grower in Leon
County has proved that wine can be
made here equal in flavor to the best
wines of France, and there are soils
yet uncultivated near Tampa that can-
not be excelled for the growth of the
grape. In concluding this article I
will say, and I have no doubt the state-
ment can be readily proved that there
is not a State in the Union where money.-
can be better or more pleasantly in-
vested than Florida."

The desperado Sam Lewis has been,
captured by Deputy Sheriff Pierce of
Dade- County, and the people of that
part of the State feel relieved. Lewis
tried every, means to evade arrest, and
in resisting the officers he fatally shot
one of the Deputy Sheriff's posse, add-
ing another murder to his list of
crimes. His trial should be, speedy,
and his punishment according to the
enormity of his offenses.

Referring to .the fruit shipsments
from. DeFuniak Springs, the Breeze of.
that place says: "'The season Is suffi-
ciently near its end to enable a very close
estimate to be made of the crop. Up to
the last publication, the total ship-
ments by freight and express were
9,421 packages; last week the shipments
were 5,204 packages; and those for this
week, up to date, 425; making a total
of 15,050 packages. Six entire carloads,
aggregating about 6,500 crates, went by
freight, and the balance by express.,
These shipments went forward from a
region that fifteen years ago was unin-
habited save by gophers and salaman-
ders. This is a fair sample of the prog-
ress made all over the State within tho,
period mentioned." .

culation in our county. The su!)plids
of the camp are impor'ted, and the pres-
ence of the convicts is an offense and a
menace to good citizens. Honest labor
desires and should have work." cox
belief is that the labor of the conv\ice
of the State could be used advantago-
ouiJy in making and maintaining tle
county roads. In p::arts of the Sovih
where they are engaged in this work
the cost of the, roads is just one-half, fr

Electricity In Agriculture.
One of our Consuls in the German
Empire reports the successful trial of'
an electric plow. This is accompa-
nied with the statementthat it can .be ,
run cheaper- than a pldw operated bby
steam or drawn by horses, where their-
food is expensive. Ifa 'low can be
drawn by an electric motor, of course
a harrow, cultivator, and grain. drill
or seeder can.. So apparently can a&
mowing machine and harvester. HaV-
ing prepared land for a grain crop,
planted, cultivated, and harvested it
by the employment of electric power,
the thrashing and cleaning of it by the
use of the same kind of power would
seem to be easy.

When electricity, is once introduced[
on a farm, to conjecture where it will.
stop, is difficult. It may produce as
great a revolution in the country dur-.
ing the*next'ten years as it has pro-
duced in the city during a similar pe--
riod. The farmer's house and ground&
may be lighted by electricity in the,
near future, and his home begin to 'as--
sume an air of elegance. An electric:
sheep-shearing machine is now in op-
eration in England and Australia,,
and less difficulty -would seem to be,
met with in constructing a machine-,-
operated by electricity that would cut
the grass on a smooth field than the,
wool on the wrinkled body, of a Me-
rino sheep. With an elcric power
plant a farmer can run a mill for grind-
ing grain 'for stock, -a circular saw for
cutting wood and a machine for husk-
ing and shelling corn. He can also re-
lieve the boy who is accustomed to turn.
the grind stone.
Farmers. have the reputation of being
very conservative and slow to adopt
,new things. This is' true, but when
anything new and useful is introduced
they are anxious to adopt it. Fashions ,
in working the soil and in tending
crops spread very fast. The like is
true in relation to Aptroducing new,
crops. Let one man in a county make
a success in raising tobacco, hops.
broom corn, or any ,hew variety of fruit,
and a hundred will follow his example
the next season. In five years its pro-
duction will become the leading indus- .
try. .
Near many farm's in the Soptherni
and Eastern States, are water 'powers
that can be utilized for -running dy-
namos and other apparatus for pro-
ducing electric light and power.T In
most parts of the. South and West soft
coal for producing steam is very atun-
dant ,and cheap. Almost every farm of.
the prairies is supplied with a wind-
mill whose power could be utilized for
generating electricity. To'convey elec-
tricity twenty-five-miles with a loss oq,
only 20 per cent is now practical. But
11ittle doubt can be entertained that'
great improvements will be made inr
generating and transmitting electric.
power within the next few years.
With this power to do most of the,
work on farms little use will be ,made
of horses, mules, or other. draf t ani-,
mals. They will be ',useful only for""
drawing, produce from the, fields to the.,
farm buildingv'and from ;there to the''
market.' The cost of keeping the draft ,
animals. that are req.Uired, to, do thf"
work on a large, farm is great. Much
of the produce of the,farm is, require-d
to feed them. Every 'year they ;come'

The president of a street railway
company in St. Louis recently told an
Inquirer that he wanted "steady and
sober men, and only that kind". He
considers even moderate drinking a
bad habit, and will not tolerate It. He
thus defined his policy:
"My foremen and others who have
charge of men are repeatedly cau-
tioned to be careful when men report
for duty. If a man shows the least sign
of having taken a drink or two, or does
not appear steady in every way, he is
right then and there asked to step out."
This is purely a matter of business
with him. He is not seeking the moral
improvement of his employees, but the
safety of the property interests that he
represents. "We must do 'this in self-
proteotion," he explained, "for let it
once become known that we tolerate
drinking, and demoralization would
soon ensue among -the whole lot, while
every accident that happened would be
credited by the public to the drunken
antics of our men, and we should then
be compelled to pay every claim made
against us."
This is another Illustration of the law
of the survival of the fittest. The
drunkard, and even ,the drinking man
who would resent being called intem-
perate, is being pushed to ,the wall by
the taws of trade. We have reached an
age when the sober man commands a
premium In the labor market.

The most notable development in
the fruit line this season is the won-
derful popularity achieved by the
Southern peach In the Northern mar-
ket. Secretary Smith of the Interior
Department recently made a visit to
Georgia, and on his return to Washing-
ton waxed enthusiastic over the sub-
ject of Georgia peaches, regarding
which he said:
"Georgia peaches have a national,
if not an international, reputation
through this year's product. More
peaches have been raised and marketed
than ever before in the history of the
State. They are large and juicy, and
In the Eastern markets, I am told,
have almost entirely supplanted the
tasteless California peaches."
Evidence to the same effect comes
from various quarters. A New Yorker,
who Is always on the lookout for the
latest and best thing In the way of
fruit, writes the Citizen as follows:
"You may be interested to know that
the Southern peach is running the Cali-
fornia peach out of the market. The
fruit from the Pacific Coast has always
been fair to look upon, but most de-N
ceptive to taste, always lacking flavor.
The Georgia peach that we have had
In abundance this summer is handsome
in appearance, and as good as it looks."
Secretary Smith says that few people
comprehend the magnitude of this in-
dustry In Georgia, and cltes the fact
-that one railroad system during the
season has been hauling from sixty to
ninety carloads per day in refrigerator
cars from Georgia to Eastern points,
the -trains running on lightning sched-
ules, and making even better time than
the vestibuled limited passenger trains.

the bench from Kentucky, but he had
always lived on the south bank of
the Ohio River, and differed in no par-
ticular, Us regards hist polltcal attl-
tude, from any Republican on ithe
northern side of the Stream. Like the
late Judge ,Wood's, who was appointed
from Georgia where he had settled as
a carpet-bagger, Mr. Harlan is essen-
tially a Northern man. When Mr.
Cleveland named Mr. Lamar for this

and possibilities of Florida, written by
F. J. La Penotiere, an old settler of
Hillsboro County. Mr. La Penotiere
says that after living Jn the State for
'twenty-five years, he can'safely declare
that the United States holds no place
where a man can live more c0onfort-
ably under his own vine and fig tree,
enjoy sweeter milk and honey, and be
put to less expense, than in Florida. In
explanation of failures he sas: ,
, "I doubt whether any State in the
Union has had so many inexperienced
settlers who have failed through their
own folly and inexperience, and have
gone out cursing the State, instead of
their own improvidence, and want of
foresight, and apparent neglect of the
most ordinary rules of life, and business.
The principal trouble has been among
people of small means who came here
with the one idea of planting an orange
grove. An orange tree must be planted
and then carefully cultivated for per-
haps ten years before a paying, crop
can, be expected. How many have
merely planted the grove without the
wit or means to wait for its bearing?"
Mr. La Penotiere believes that the
freeze of last winter has. been- a great
object lesson.to-a large number of the
orange, growers.of the State. Continu-
Ing, he says:
"To those who' live above the 29th
degree of latitude, -the freeze ha~s been
disastrous beyond recovery. ',In, the
more southern portion of the State- the
,trees ,are coming out finely, and next
year we. may expect (to see large crops.
But the lesson taught by the freeze haas
been of incalculable Value. It has~turned
*thi attention of the common-sense
people ,to the immense undeveloped re-
sources -that they have neglected.
These have -been talked of by intelbi-
gent people for years, but only very
tentatlye attempts have been made ,to
utilize them. Four principal products
strike me just now as being most im-
portant, namely: First, tobacco, espe-
cially In view of the fact that threats
*have been made by the Cuban auth.ori-
,ties to cut off the ,exportation of that
product. We can grow ais good tobacco
for cigars as can be produced in Cuba.
The exact -locality where the best can
be grown i's to. be found, but the Cubans
seem ,to have more enterprise in that
direction than Americans. The best
cigar 7wrapper leaves come from the
Island of Sumatra, and are sold..in
Tampa at $4. per pound. In Virginla
ordinary tobacco is grown profitably at
8 cents per pound. The best wrap-
per tobacco is grown on ordinary
good ,soil, as ,a small, fine leaf is, re-
quired, and we can grow as good an
article as comes from Sumatra to,this
.country. What better thing does the
protectionist want 4han, the protective
duty of $1,50 per pound on wrapper t0-
bacco? Yet, in spite of this, but one
firm has had the common business sense
to grow wrapper tobacco in Florida.

So far asconsiderations of locality are
concerned, the South nmAy well urge
that Judge 'Jackson's successor should
come from the same part of the coun-
try. The South is entitled to have at
the veryI least three representative
jurists on the highest bench, and it now
has but two, leaving Harlan out of-the
account. The nation Is divided Into
nine judicial circuits, each of which had
a representative before Judge Jackson's
death, except the Second, which in-
cludes New York, Connecticut, and Ver-
mont, and the Fourth, which comprises
Maryland, the two Virginlas, and the
two Carolinas, Jackson and Harlan
b'oth coming from the Sixth, which in-
cludes Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and
Michigan. In order to give each cir-
cuit a place, the appointment now to
be made should go to either the Second
or the Fourth Circuit; and of these two,
to *the last, because It has been so long
Undoubtedly, however, the claim will
bemade 'by New York that the prize
should go' to that State, on the ground
that a great proportion of the cases
submitted to the court come from it,
and that the presence of a lawyer
trained in its courts and laws is espec-
ialiy desirable. Happily, so far as po-
litical considerations go, the South can'
be quite Indifferent whether Mr. Cleve-
land finally picks outi.a New Yorker or
a man from south of the Potomac. The
T nominee is sure in any case to be a
good Democrat, and no questions are
... now before the *country on which
. Northern views -and Southern views can
L 'be differentiated.
As regards the income tax, the death
of Judge Jackson does not give any
chance of reopening the question of

DAY, AUGUST 15, 1895.


The recent death of Justice Jackson
of the United States Supreme Court de-
prives the highest Judicial bench of an
ornament, the South of an able public
man, and the nation of a patriotic ser-
vant. Judge Jackson enjoyed the unique
distinction of having been appointed
Judge of the Federal Circuit Court by
a President of his own party, and pro-
moted to the higher tribunal by a po-
litical opponent. The first appointment
was by Mr. Cleveland while Justice
Jackson was a member of the Senate In
1886, and the last. In 1893, by Mr. gar-
rison. He succeeded to,0the vacancy on
the supreme bench caused by the death
of Mr. Lamar, and a most creditable
act of Mr. Harrison's administration
was his recognition of the fact that
fair play required the filling of one
Southern Democrat's place with an-
The highest court now consists of
five RepubUcans, Justices Gray of
Massachusetts, Shiras of Pennsylvania,
Brown of Michigan, Harlan of Ken-
tucky, and Brewer of Kansas; and three
Democrats, Chief Justice Fuller of Illi-

were Rev. R. T. DuBose, pastor of

Milton Waldron, pastor of the col
Bethel Baptist Church. The latter
accompanied by a large number of
ored men, who have been aiding
in the gathering of data against
granting of the petitions. The only
who had anything to say on the o
side was J. H. Brown, also colo
who was mainly instrumental in

names appeared on different petlttt
from different election districts; t]

S tests, Mr. Weldon said that, owing to a
pressure of other duties, he had beer
unable to prepare his protests against
four other petitions for license, and he
requested further time for this work
He was told that no license would be
to granted before the next meeting of the
Commissioners, and that he would be
allowed time at that meeting for the
further presentation of his case.
The results gained from the meeting
were nothing so far as the Board of
Commissioners was concerned. The
S committee took the ground that It could
take cognizance only of forgeries which
were supported by affidavits, and If
v. these reduced the number of names on
any petition below that of the majority
of the registered voters in that election
district, it would have to refuse the pe-
tition. If, on the other hand, the num-
ber of forgeries did not so reduce the
number of signers, it would have no
discretion In the matter, but must

i- the law. The committee stated that the

1 Reorganization of the Metropolitan
Light Infantry Will Take Place.
The Metropolitan Lighlt Infantry held
r a short business meeting at its armory
last night, and Captain L. H. Mattair
presided probably for the last time.
The reports of several committees were,
read and ordered filed.,
Captain Mittair stated to the mem-
bets that there had been a great deal
of dissatisfaction among the members
of the company of late, some of them
pulling one way and some another. He
together with the First and Second
Lieutenants, -therefore, thought it best
to resign from the company, and thus
allow a general reorganization to take
place. Captain Mattair stated that he,
together with First Lieutenant With-
ington and Second LieuteMant Ken-
nedy, had sent to Major Turner their
resignations, who had after approving
them, forwarded them to the Adjutant
General at Tallahassee. He thanked
the members for the courtesy and kind-
,nees that had been shown to him in
the past, and, with a few kind words
to the boys, withdrew. The meeting
was then declared adjourned.
Later the company was ordered to
"fall In", and Adjutant Wilson, who
was present In uniform, read general
order No. 10, from Major Turner, which

he had rescued worshiped him from
If. however, we had hopes that this
little incident might brighten up Jer-
emy Tobin, we were doomed to be dis-
appointed, for he fell back into his old
ways again, sober, moody, and glum,
and so he continued till affairs in South
Africa summoned us to Portsmouth,
and thence to the Cape.
Day was breaking over the veldt, but
early though it was, the outpost was up
and stirring. It was no time to lie abed
when the main column was miles away
across the river, and bands of Zulus
were scouring the country, "seeking
whom they might" devour", and if one
happened to be located as we were,
in an old kraal on the slope of a low hill
rising steep and grass-covered from the
plain, defended merely by a double row
of palisades, a couple of field-pieces,
and a score or so of infantry of the line,
there was all the greater need for inces-
sant care and watchfulness, if we ever
hoped to see the shores of "Merry Eng-
land" once again.
Why there was any need for such a
place to be defended at all, was a fact
which might have puzzled wiser heads
than ours; but there were many things
in the course of that fatal war which
never were and never will be explained,
and thus it was that we officers
stretched ourselves, and yawned, and
blinked, and finally rose for our morn-
ing cup of coffee and round of daily
labor, which consisted for the most
part of 'scrutinizing the surrounding
plain and hills through our field-glasses
eating, drinking, and sleeping with
what good-will we might.
For a whole week we had been
cooped up, getting no news save what
our two Kaffir scouts brought in, and
that did not amount to much, and we
wearied with an exceeding weariness
of the monotony of outpost duty. Lit-
tle did we think that the end of it, and
to not a few of us the end of all things,
was rapidly approaching, for Cherry-
beak, one of our scouts, a fuzzy-haired
mortal with a fiery red nose-hence his
high-sounding name-had come in the
previous night with news that all was
quiet and the country apparently de-
serted. It was true that his companion,
Knobby-short fQr Knob-nose-had
not yet returned; but there was noth-
ing peculiar in this, and we were some-
what surprised when our orderly in-
formed us that our worthy scout, had
been sighted making for the graal at a
pace which he did not usually affect.
We brisked up at this, and eagerly
awaited his arrival, discussing in the
meantime what his piece of informa-
tion might portend.
"The beggar is hungry, depend upon
it," drawled Jones, our young sub;
,!never knew such a man as Knobby
for his breakfast-that's the meaning
of his quick travelling, I'll bet."
"Jones, man," said our captain, a
worthy Scot with a fund of dry humor,
"ye must not be always judging folk
by yourself; but, speaking seriously, I
mean something more than breakfast
to Knobby; and the worst of it is, in
the event of an attack, we have not
any great store of ammunition, ttianks
to Tobin; still, it may merely be, LL scare,
and whatever you do, don't let the men
hear about the cartridges. But here is
Knobby and the news!"
Knobby was a Swazi by birth, a tall,
well-built man, a gocd scout, and a
splendid runner, but it- was evident,
from his distressed' breathing that he
had about enough, of it on the present
occasion. He sp'luted, and was about
to make his report, when- Captain
Forbes beckoned him to follow, and
accompanied 'by myself as senior lieu-
tenant, m~de hig way into the hut
which served as the officers' quarters.
Then Khobby told his tale.
Some ten miles ,to ,the north, he had
comc" upon a small "impi" encamped,
evidently a detachment from. a larger
,body, and thad learned that they were
on the way to our kraal, though, appa-
rently, -they were unaware thatt we were
In possession. He had managed to steal
away unperceived, and had run at full
-dyrem-m"teto-^ wtwt"t be, fft%* Its
timely warning.
*How many might there be? Knobby
,had coun te'd them. There were three
, hundredd ,,young warriors, and they
would be here in a few hours at the
most, for their halt .had merely been a
temporary one.
It was a, pleasant prospect! Here
were w, not much over forty men all
,told, with a .decidedly sinall stock of
ammunition, waiting 'in an old kraal
far away from ,the British lines for an
,attack from ,three .hundred. fighting
men of ,one of Cetewayo's most famous
regiments, led by a, young but amnbi-
`tious and clever warrior: for Knobby
had..'thanks .to the long grass, go~t close
enough to learn details. ,Well, there
was nothing for it bu~t .to make ,the
best of it, `though we .took care to send
Cherry-beak off with 'a message to t~he
column. It was no~t `the numbers we
cared so much about, for we were be-
hind stoclkades; it woas `the cartridges.
"Confound ,that mad fellow!" mut-
tered ,the captain as we left ,the hut.
"Wha~t possessed him to meddle with
the ammunition? But for that, we
might have laughed at ,them."
"If his madness has added to his
strength, he may be of use yet," I an-
swered, "especially if it comes ,to close

"Use! look at him; what use do you
think can be made of that man?"
In a corner of ,the little enclosure sat
a strange-looking figure, a, huge, heav-
ily-built 'man, his ,head sunk forward
on his chest. He was busily engaged?
in making a mud-pie, as engrossed in
this occupation as if he had been a
child of 6 instead of a great stalwart
Zululand 'had not dealt kindly with
Gentleman Jerry.
.On the march up, country he had been
struck down with sunstroke, and
though he rapidly recovered at the time
he had afterwards seemed more gloomy
and silent than ever. Then, a couple of
days before we left ,the main column, a
letter arrived which had greatly dis-
,tressed him. Still he was well enough,
and seemed glad when he was allowed
to accompany the detachment; but
none of us had. been much surprised
when, two days after we had reached
the kraal, Gentleman Jerry was found
laughing and gibbering to himself as he
sat bareheaded in the sun. It was a
more serious matter, however, when we
fund that he had gained an entrance
to the hut in which our precious stock'
of ball cartridge was stored and had
destroyed as much as he could lay
hands on, tearing open 1he cases and
using the powder for his own ends-
namely, mixing, it with water and mak-
ing fizzing cones of it.
A strict guard had been placed over
him since then, and now he was occu-
pying his time making mudpies and
trying in vain to make them fizz also.
It was a pitiable, sight; but we had other
things to think of, and soon all the men
save Jerry and his guard were at their
posts; ammunition was served out, and
a large supply of water brought in from
the spring close by the kraal. Then we
waited for the enemy.
We had not long to wait; but it seemn-
ed hours and hours obefort any sign of
them appeared; then all of a sudden the
rest of a low hill to the north of 'us
was black-black with armed Zulus.
' Three ,hundred of them! there must
have been nearer thred thousand, a long
Sling, which,' pausing a moment, began
slowly to creep down the yellowish-
,gray hillside like a great black and

sun on their assegai blades looked like
burnished silver. I looked around me.
The men were at the loopholes which
had been cut in the outer stockade.
With grim and set faces they were
watching the advancing foe, and for
the most part were quiet and silent.
We officers were gathered on the ris-
ing ground in the middle of the kraal,.
for there was no need of concealment;
and by one of the huts was the huge
form of Gentleman Jerry working away'
at his little heap of mud, and over alt
floated the old flag, its folds streaming
out against the gentle breeze.
Away out on the plain the impi had
halted, and with our glasses we could
see the headmen consulting together
Then on it came again without Cry 01
sound, and again halted out of range
We waited anxiously for its further
movements, and then, to our surprise
-for the Zulus usually attack in great
force-a small party moved to the front
while the rest squatted down and preo
pared to watch the assault. It was evi-
dent they deemed our numbers small ,
but they could have had no idea we
had the field-pieces, or they would have
attacked us with a far larger force thaq.
the 300 unringed warriors who stoo6,
in a double line being inspected by theli,
chiefs. We learned afterward that the
300 young warriors, constituting theta
party Knobby had come across,' ha&,
begged as an especial favor to be al-
lowed the privilege of eating up the6
white men. Whether'they altogether
enjoyed the eating-up process we must
leave the reader himself to judge. For-
tunately they could only attack us by
the face of the slope, owing to the na-
ture of the ground, and our whole avail-
able force was grouped together at this,
part of the kraal to await the Zulu
charge. Next moment the line was in
motion, and up the slope they came,
slowly,, but steadily, their great war-
shields in front of them, and' we could
see that some of them carried rifles.
Then they burst into a wild war song,
the burden of which came rolling up
the hill toward us. "Slay, slay!" they
chanted; "the sun is red; we shall eat
them up; the white men shall' die; on-
ward, children of the Amazula; kill,,
kill!" But the kraal was silent. And
now they quickened their pace, ,and
swept upward, their plumes waving,
and their fierce faces grinning at us
above their shield-points; but the kraal
was no longer silent, for suddenly the
field-pieces opened fire upon them with
deadly effect. 1.
Taken altogether by surprise, they
halted a moment; and seemed to waverl
then, encouraged by their leaders, they
poured in a scattered volley, and throw-
ing away their muskets, drew together
for a final charge; but quick and sharp
came the command, and a blaze of fire
sprang from the stockade, as, the Mar-
tinis poured in a deadly hail upon their
ranks. The battle fever was upon thenrt
however, and undeterred, up they came,
eager to grapple with the 'hidden fod;
but it was not to be.
Fierce and -terrible -as they were, morg.
fierce and terrible was the rain of shot
which met them, and down they wentt,

above his black head the, butt of a rife
came in view. Next moment it descent.-

gap. But a roar which rose high abo.e-

went down with their skulls batteel
out of all shape, while the third a little

couple of. assegai wounds; but I savl
his eyes gleam with fury as th-- terri-

was evident from his lofty bearing and
every movement of his lithe but giant"
frame. A crowd of Zulus were now'at
the gap in the stockade, but they sti.d
there. in awe, gazing at their chief ajfid
the strange white warrior.
From the kraal came the hoarse or-
der, "Keep on firing. lads!" and.tlie bul-
lets still whistled and sang above me:
but the fire had slackened, for the cart-
ridges were all but spent.
Crash! Kno'bkerrie and rifle-butt had
met, but away spun the former, wxxhile
the Martini was jerked out of the mad-
man's grasp. With a cry of triumph.
the chief sprang forward and p),lunge.1
his stabbing. assegai into Jeremy's ri ght
side. Next moment the madman had
plucked it Dut, and the next he had
the "ulu \n his terrible embrace. To
and fro the tall figures rocked, and then
as I lay, I could see the chief's eyes
start fromi their sockets and his face
grow wild with fear and pain. Then_
there came .a cracking, grinding siujnd.
' horrible to hear, and Gentleman Jerry
tossed the Zulu's crushed and mangled
corpse from him, and with a great ef-
fort stood erect, the blood'pouring.,t'omeo

1d a hearty British cheer, followed by
rattle of carbines brought joy to us,
81ad carried dismay to our baffled foes,
1ho, as they fled, were cut down in
dAzens by the cavalry who had come so
tynely to our rescue.
When all was over and the kraal was
cleared, Gentleman Jerry was found ly-
ing quiet and still, a strange smile on
his blood-stained face, from which the
madness had gone forever. So we bur-
led him there with his comrades, by
the old kraal on the grassy slope, and
there he lies in that far-off land, and
his secret lies buried with him.
Strangely enough, about a year after-
ward I was looking over the "agony"
column of the Times, when I came up-
on the following: "J. T. (S-e.)-My
poor boy, it has all been a sad mistake
and a vile plot; the letters were frauds.
Come back for God's sake, before it is
too late."

From the Seattle Times.
Many years ago, even so far back that
the traditions of the oldest Siwash ex-
tend not thereto, there was some vast
upheaval of mother earth on 4he shores
of Lake Samamish that sent a portion
of the big Newcastle Hills sliding-
down into the lake with its tall ever-
green forest intact, and there it is to
this day. About this time of the year
the waters of the lake are at their
lowest, and then the tops of the tallest
of these big submerged trees are out
of the water, but never more than
ten or twelve inches. s
'Unfortunately for the curiosity seek-
er and traveling public generally the
submerged forest is on the opposite
side of the lake from the railroad and
the station of Monohon, and very few
people ever see the phenomenon un-
less they take the time and pains nec-
essary to reach it.
Sam Coombs, the pioneer, has odust
been over to view the submerged for-
est, and he is very enthusiastic con-
cerning its beauty and mystery. He
talks Chinook fluently, but with all
his quizzing of the red-skinned inhab-
itants he has never learned anything
that will throw any light on the his-
tory of the forest under water. "The
waters of the lake are very deep, and
the bluffs back of the beach very pre-
cipitous, so that the only explanation
of the freak is that either by an earth-
quake of some other means a great
slide had been started in early times,
.and, it went down as a mass until it
found lodgment at the bottom of the
lake. At this -time one can see down
into the glassy, mirror-like depths of
the lake for thirty feet or more. Near
the batks the forest trees are inter-
laced at various angles and in confu-
sion, but further out in in the deep
water they stand straight, erect, and
limbless, and barkless, 100 feet tall.
They are not petrified in the sense of
being turned to stone, but they are
preserved and appear to have stood
there for ages. They are three
feet through, some of them, and so
firm in texture as to be scarcely af-
Ifected by a, knifE blade. The great
Slide extended for some distance, and
4tt" would ncow ,be a dangerous piece of
i,.;ork for a steamer to attempt passage
?..ver the tops of these tall trees. Even
fc'Hj'.ow the. water along shore is very
eep, and a ten-foot pole would sink
,erpendicularly out of sight ten feet
Irom the shore line.
All over this country are -found
rtrata of blue clay, which in the win-
it, season are very treacherous, and
yven the least bit of opportunity will

Abnierged forest of Lake Samamish.

"The Slpeetro.eope Proves Them an
.%g'res-ntion of Satellites.
Fr'om the New Tbrk Evening Post.
Since the discovery of Jupiter's fifth
satellite, nearly three years ago, the
labors of astronomers, although .un-

ceasing, have resulted in nothing so
significant until very recently. Saturn's
ring has always been popularly
thought a sort of mystery, in spite of
Clerke Maxwell's prize essay published
in 1869, in which ,his mathematical
proofs were conclusive that it consists
of a multitude of small bodies revolv-
ing round the planet in circular or-,
bits. Certainly'there is nothing else
like it in the solar system,; if, indeed,
in the universe, and Prof. Keeler of the
Allegheny Observatory has just pub-
lished a very interesting paper, in
which he demonstrates by a widely.dif-
ferent method, that of the spectroscope,
the meteoric constitution of Saturn's
rings. Mathematical investigation had
shown that a solid or fluid ring could
not exist under the circumstances in
which the actual ring is placed. To
distinguish between the two hypothe-
ses, that the ring is a rigid body and
that it 'is a swarm of satellites, it is
necessaryy to find a method of great
delicacy by which to bring "the ques-
tion within the province of the spectro-
scope. The relative velocities of dif-
ferent parts of the ring would be es-
sentially different under each condition.
.If. the ring rotated as a whole, the
velocity of the outer edge would exceed
,that of the inner; but if the ring is
an aggregate of revolving satellites, the
speed would be greatest at the inner
edge. The inclination of lines in the
spectra of the ansae would be reversed
in the respective cases. If, again, the
ring rotates as a whole, the displace-
ment of lines, in. its spectrum would
foll,)w the same laws as for a rotating
sphere. But the lines now actually
photographed by Prof. Keeler success-
fully that the velocity of the inner
edge of the ring exceeds that of the
,uter, and that the relative velocities
at different parts satisfy Kepler's third
law. Everything pertainng to the mag-
nificent system of Saturn is of great
inte-rest, and the actual aspect of the
lines inProf. Keeler's photographs is
in exact accordance with that required
by the theory that the rings are com-
posed of a swarm of mpeteoric bodies,
or small satellites revolving about the
planet. These swiftly moving particles
then, in the outer edge of the ring trav-
el round Saturn in twelve hours and
five minutes, a period slightly larger
than that of Jupiter's fifth satellite:

minutes, nearly two hours less than
the period of Phobos, the inner moon
of Mars.


They Eat Rags Used in Burnishing"
Gold Watch Cases.
From the Chicago Tribune.
In forming a company for the ex-
traction of gold from the microbes
which are supposed, to attach them-
selves to that metal in countless mil-
lions mature Frenchmen seem to have
stolen an idea from thrifty Yankee
I. B. Lake, a representative of the
Waltham Watch Company in this city,
says it is common practice for the boys
in watch and jewelry, factories to kill
rats and burn their bodies to get the
gold from them, and that the araount
thus obtained in the course of a year is
considerable. In every large plant like
that of the Waltham Watch Company
many oiled rags are used in burnish-
ing watch cases, and in time become
strongly impregnated with gold. The
boys about the factories are supposed
to keep these rags out of reach of the
rats, but they don't do so. On the con-
trary, knowing the keen appetite of
the rodents for everything greasy, the
boys carelessly leave these rubbing
rags lying about where the rats can get
at them and eat them. Six months of
this kind of diet fills the interior me-
chanism of the rat with a gold plating
he cannot get rid of. It sticks to him
closely, and so long as the supply of

oily rags hold out the rat sticks to the
factory. In order to make sure the
voracious rodents will have an induce-
ment to gorge themselves with gold,
sharp boys drop butter and fatty meats
from their luncheons on the floors and
rub them well into the wood by shuff-
ling their feet on It. At night the rats
come out ad nibble the flooring. They
don't care for the gold in it, but the
grease attracts them, and in getting at
the grease they take a dressing of gold,
with it.
Twice a year the boys .have a grand
round up. Rats are caught by the hun-
dreds, and after being killed are put
into a crucible and burned., The iin-
tense heat drives off all animal sub-
stances, leaving the gold in the shape of
a button. The amount collected in this
way depends upon the number of rats,
the boys *catch. It is hardly large
enough to attract an investment' of
capital, but it gives the ingenious
youngsters considerable pocket m6ney
and encourages business tactics.' In
some factories there are young Na,
poleons who buy up in advance the
shares of their fellow-workers in the
rat colony. A scarcity of rats will de-
press the' price of futures, while an
overplus will advance it. 'Sharpers who
understand these conditions are. ac-
cused of having at times caused an ar-
tificial scarcity or oversupply, as it
might be to their interest to bull or
bear the market.

behind the times with their microbe

Or How the Kraal Was Saved.

From Chambers' Journal.
It was a dull and cheerless day. The
rain was sputtering down viciously up-
on the greasy pavements and filling
the gutters, in each of which ran a
drumly rivulet, swift and froth-topped.
The few passers-by looked. damp and
miserable as they hurried on their way,
and took no notice of the tall, spare
figure muffled in a military greatcoat,
who was marching up and down the
pavement at the regulation pace. The
knot of colored ribbons falling soaked
knd limp from his forage cap pro-
claimed him to a recruiting sergeant;
but there seemed nothing for him to re-
cruit beyond half-starved, wholly be-
draggled mongrel, which was carrying
on investigations round an empty ash
bucket. Old Sergeant Dreadnought had
been deserted by his companions, who
had sought refuge in a neighboring
public, where many a Queen's shilling
had been converted, like many an or-
dinary one, Into the glass that both
cheers and Inebriates. The sergeant
was used to being deserted, however,
for he was an observant man, and had
often noticed that his largest hauls-
and he was famed for large hauls-had
been made on wet and dismal days,
and he made a point of being at his
post in all kinds of weather.
For once, however, the sergeant
seemed to be wrong. It was growing
dusk, and not a single aspirant for mil-
itary glory had he interviewed that
livelong damp and dirty day. He had
even made up his mind to desert the
cold pavement and cheer his Inner mark
by* a glass of grog, when, as he turned
to put his resolution Into effect, he saw
something which caused him to stop
short and resume his measured tramp.
This something was the figure of a man
who had appeared at, the corner on the
opposite side of the street; and the
well-practiced eye of old Dreadnought
had'recognized in him a likely prey.
The man was young, tall, and broad,
but evidently much thinner than he
once had been, or else his clothes-and
sorry clothes they were-would not
have hung so loosely on his great
frame. They were soaked with rain,
and the man shivered as a gust of east
wind caught him at the corner and
nipped and buffeted him, seemingly in
wild delight at having at length found
a being In this quarter who was sus-
ceptible to Its attack, for it had done its
best all day with the gaunt, gray-
coated Individual on the other side of
the street, but apparently without the
least effect. %
The man glanced across the road,
and evidently caught sight of the Ser-
geant and his ribbons, for he hesitated
a moment, then, as the old soldier
watched him out of a corner of his
eye, he produced from somewhere in
his ragged trousers a halfpenny, and
that only after a careful search. Bal-
ancing it on his thumbnail, he tossed
it upward and let tIt fall on the pave-
ment; then picking it up he be-
gan rapIdly -to cross the road.
The Sergeant, who had been an in-
terested spectator of this performance,
straightened himself, or rather went
through -the motionsito produce such a
result, for he was already as straight
as it is possible for a, man with an
ordinary built spine o be, cleared his
throat and put an extra twist on his
mustache, then turned to meet the
Old Dreadnought had In his time en-
listed many a queer customer, but as
he said afterward, "Never in all my
life 'ad. I ,seed sich a sad look on a
man's face. He seemed as if he 'ad
swallowed/his gag without a-tasting"
of ft. /
The young nmn came straight up to
-^ the Se naut.'and without ayL;relim-
you please."
"You do, -my lad; then come along
wil m'e."
They adjourned to 4the public, and
many were the remarks -the old Ser-
geant had passed upon him by his fel-
low-recrulters for stealing a march
upon them; but ,he was well used to
their banter, and proceeded to admin-
ister to himself and ,to ,his latest capture
&stiff glass of whisky and water. The
new recruit ,turned out ,to be a very
silent fellow, for the easwered ,all ques-
.tions ias shortly as possible, and was
seemed disinclined for company. He
gave his name as Jeremy Tobin; his
a~ge as four-and-twen~ty, but he looked
nearer 30; beyond ,that there was little
Information to be got out of him; and
he was finally left to .himself, as "a:
surly sort of cuss", though the men
pi'tled him, tots ace wias so .careworn
and sad.
The "surly cuss" was placed in the
company of recruits which I had the
honor and misfortune to lick into shape,
and a sorry lot ,they were'.
Jeremy Tobin, was by .a long way the
*best of .them both as regarded physique
and intelligence; ,and partly on this ac-
oournt, .nd partly because of his
strange, ,settled melancholy,', I took -n
Interest in him and watched him close-
ly. 'He was a fine-looking man when
shaved ,and decently dressed; and under
the combined influence of warm clothes
and good food, he 'showed up as a very
powerfully built fellow, well over six

feet, and with the chest and limbs of a
Hercules. But though he *thus im-
lproVed as regarded his ouitef man, his
demeanor never altered. I had seen
many a gloomy end miserable recruit,
but -they always cheered up or deserted
In the course of a month or two; no.t
so Gentleman Jerry, -as he had been
Polite at all times, and eager for his
work,, he seldom spoke, unless spoken
to, and was never known to smile. In-
deed, "as glum as Gentleman Jerry"
to be quite a proverb in the regiment;
and though at first his comrades rallied
him on the subject,, they soon wearied
of it, and he was allowed to "gang his
amn gait". I did rmy best to win his con-
fidence; but beyond a "Thank you, sir,
you are very kind," he would tell me
nothing, even when I once came upon
him with a letter in his hands, sob-
bing like a child, and begged him to let
me help him. Once only, to my cer-
tain kfiowledge, did Jeremy Tobin
rouse himself, and then it was a rous-
ing with a vengeance.- We were in
camp at. .the time, and Jeremy, while
taking a solitary stroll, had come upon
a great, coarse brute of a fellow un-
mercifully flogging a little drummer
boy belonging to our regimental band,
This man, who was a corporal in an-
other, regiment, had the reputation of
being a terrible bully, and was without
doubt one of the strongest men ia her
Majesty's service. He was inflicting
-chastisement on the little drummer for
daring to assert that "our regiment,
could lick his at any mortal. thing",
Gentleman Jerry had taken the sur-
prised-bully by the collar and dragged
'* him off the boy by main force; then,
,. lo6sing.his hold of him, he had calmly
* *requiested the boy to tell his version of
theaffair. The little chap had blubber-
ed out his story, and then Jeremy had-
politely asked the bully to give him his
version. Finding he had none to give,
Gentleman Jerry had straightway strip-
ped off his coat and gone for him on the
spot, saying never a word, but pounding
the man In a terribly cool and scientific,
S-not to say effective fashion: after which

The Political Marriage Into Which
'She Was Forced Has Turned Out
Most Unhappily-Her Influence Over
Nicholas Systematically Undermined.
From the Chicag( Times-Herald.
Berlin, Germany, Aug. .10.-Queer
Stories from the court of St. Petersburg
have been heard, here in the last few
days. They have been brought by the
Russian noblemen coming from the cap-
ital ifor their annual visits at the German
springs, by minor officials from Ger-
man Consulates in the empire of the
Czar, and by two or three Ambassy
officials who are home on leaves of ab-
sende for);their summer holidays. From
one or two of these roundabout chan-
rels the gossip would have little color
of truth and would find little credence,
but, when coming from, one and all
without variation except as regards
details, it is bound to be heard and ac-
cepted as. approximately correct. The
subject concerns the family affairs of
the Romanoffs, and might be left to the
Romanoffs as'. part of the inevitable
Family chronicles were it not for the
strong influence, which the matter is
exertilig over the politics of Europe,
Asia, and Africa.
As the world has known, ever since
Alexander III. lay, stricken with death,
on his bed of suffering in Livadia, the
Princess Alix of Hesse, most beautiful
of Queen Victoria's descendants, was
forced graduallyagainst her tearful and
angry protests, into her marriage with
the flabby, immoral, and unnatural
Czarowitz, now Nicholas II. She was a
vigorous, vivacious, high-spirited type
of healthy womanhood, with very dis-,
tinct ideas of the manly qualities in-
dispensible to the model husband, and
she was quite beyond the attractions of
the Czarowitz's peculiar personality,
adorned though it might be With the
purple and scepter and the .iron crown
of unlimited power. When England
and Germany, in their determination to
Sget a clutch upon the Russian court, in-
sisted that the marriage must be, the
Princess ,Alix entered the bonds re-
signedly-resighnedly, but not hopefully,
as sle remarked to her English com-
panion of Years, just before joining her
betrothed to go to the altar:
"Whoever enters here must leave all
Shop ,behinrid."
AlixIs Not Happy.
The words were not idle, for-the
young Czarina of Russia has had hard-
/ ly a glad moment since she first sat
on her imperial throne, just a little
lower than her husband's. ,It is. note-
worthy that even the official chroniclers
of court fetes and imperial functions
have never used that familiar stock
phrase of their kind.
"The Czarina appeared to be in excel-
lent spirits and smiled graciously on all
sides." "
Even the Russian Court chroniclers
Know degrees of fulsomeness and truth,
and none of them has had the hardi-
hood to say,, "the 'Empress smiled".
Behind the omission of these three com-
monplace words lies a story of domestic
sorrow and pain, desperation and con-
scious degradation, such as the palace
may bury as well as the house ofthe
merchant Prince, or banker, or butcher,
or baker.
To the voung girl reared in homely
traditions'of the Darmstadt court and
in the cold. clear air of Osborne Ho:,use
and WAinddsor Castle, tlh-. sudden' -trans-
S fer to the side of a, perverted oman-

' S -- r ^Saai^ "- '-*rst Q-n, VD . ?ll j6 V g,, \i
7-"'.* .,- a s-hock to be Vithstood onI y after
'.,. the'most careful prepiration. She had
",the preparation and withstood the
shock. The beauty, submissiveness an,:l
apparent devo:oton of this foreign Pi;in-
cess at first fascinated yVOuni Nich,,laF.
whose associations with woman had
been' limited. ,He was charmed in her
presence; he listened to her advice; he
gave' her, his confidence. His mother
was distracted, by this, turn of family
affairs. She wished to see her son
happy to be, sure, jbut she did not wish
toilet slip from her own 1hads the
;.reins obf power which she had held dur-
ing her husband's life.. She feared that
the carefullyr spun, web of intrigue be-
'' tweeri St. Petersburg and her Danish
,birthplace wae ro be torn asunder; that
this beautiful interloper from Western
Europe would reknit the bonds be-
tween her adopted land and the coun-
; try which had cut Schleswig-and Hol-
stein from her father'-s soil; that her
weakening' s~on would b'e molded into
a docile husband, :upor' whom would,
fall unheeded, the. words of motherly
e+ warning and exhortation.
.... Mother-inLiaw Malces Trouble.
There 'is no doubt that the Princess
Alix's resignation and studied self-con-
; tr'ol would, have given out sooner or
later under the burden of her husband's
personality. So, it is only fair to ac-
quit her mother-in-law of all except
^':hastening the domestic catastrophe.
This ;she. did with the quickness and
'i recklessness of an envious woman. She
'told her. son that Prin~ess Alix treated

him with indifference, was inclined to
smile too fondly, on young men of the
Court, was scornful of Russian, ways
and devoted to the customer of foreign
courts, and had brought him complete
ly under her thumb. The sting in this
last reproach rankled the Czar, Who had
showed a fondness up to .that time for
the English and German Ambassadors,
with,-,ut the slightest forwarning, snub-
bed., them both, compelling poor old
General von Werder to get out and re-
turn to Germany. He informed his
xife gruffly: that he wanted to' hear
nothing more of her petty rela-
tivei5 "and' their impotent little
court in Dumstadt. He ,told her
S oine day that her most august rela-
tive, the Prince, of Wales, was. a cow-
ard, and her, other most august rela-
tive, Emperor William was a cad and
a bore. In a general condemnation of
the court of Lbndon he remarked that
the Gvelphs were a lot of tea-drinking
-old wmeneh, and the Queen was the'
worst of them all.
Three times the Czarina burst into
I tears at, the breakfast table and bur-
+ tried away, leaving the despot of Russia
to think how cleverly he was taming
+ her. But, after- leaving him the -third
,time. she det.rmined to let *him vent
his spleen elsewhere. For weeks she
took her meals alone, inaccessible to
the appeals from her mother-in-law at
first, and finally from Darmstadt and
Berlin. and London. To a communica-
tion reaching her from the German Em-
bassy. that Emperor W'illiam would re-
gret to lose her high regard and friend-
ship. she replied, briefly, that. if thit
was a reference to her influOeneO for
peace between Russia and German.y.
the Emperor must not deceive himself
longer, as she xvas a mere cipher at the
Peterhof. and could not get a court-
martial discharged against .the will of
tihe Dowager Empress.
Since the day of her confinement has
been drawing near the young Empress'
mhask of'resignation has fallen off en-
tirely. She has been embittered by
seeing her husband perversely intent
upon rebuffing everyone of her friends
and recalling every.' act which he per-
formed at her suggestion during their
S, honeymoon. He has seen her but twice
a week since June 1. His calls-have

continuee his reproaches, until her phy-
sician arrived, and with Russian gruff-
ness announced that he would never
enter the palace -again unless the Czar
departed instantly. The Czar object-
ed that his wife's nervousness was the
sole cause bof the scene. The doctor's
reply was:
I "If you have no mercy on her ma-
jesty, at least consider your future heir
and go at once."
All Her Friends Banished.
The Czar went. In -the last three
weeks he has, visited his wife once.
The last two times he. went to her
apartments she begged to, be excused
from receiving him and he did not in-
-sist upon entering. The last vestige
of her influence over him disappeared
weeks ago. In, pure contrariness of
spirit -he now endeavors to undo all
that he once undertook at her instance
or with :her approval. In this he is
helped by his mother, who is resolved
,to destroy completely the Crarina's
power, even in the court circle. The
result -has been not only roughshod
politics in the Balkan, Turkey, East
Asia, and Africa, but also a sifting and
upsetting of the whole list of attend-
ants and officials at the Peterhof. The
young Czarina's English and German
servants have been sent away; her
English companion has been banished
from the palace; the few court officials
who were known as, her advocates-or
friends have been transferred to dis-
tant posts of duty.
When this unfortunate wife of Nich-
olas II. shall -rise from her childbed to
sit again beside her monarch and hus-
bhand, she. will find herself entirely alone
and neglected, at a strange court, still
holding all the insignia of an Empress
consort's power, but not allowed even
a lackey of her own choosing. She
may submit tamely', but she is more
likely to raise, a breeze of protest, which-
will bring her flabby spouse about on a
new tack, with all ,its incidental bear-
ings in international politics and do-
mestic. economy,
The Life of a Bee. \
From. Meehan's Monthly.
Every year may be seen in papers of
considerable pretension to scientific ac-
curacy statements about various flow-
ers poisoning bees, -the only reason
for the statement being that the bees,
are found dead in considerable num-
ber beneath the trees. It does not seem
to be known generally that the life of
'a bee is extremely short. Every bee
that leaves the hive in the 'spring is
dead before fall, and those which live
over the fall die very soon after spring
opens. Tei, death of a bee is usually
very sudden'--they have been known toi
fall even in their flight, and to be dead
in a few seconds after reaching the
ground.. This fact about the life of the
bee is supposed to be generally known,
,yet the fact that the statement above
quoted is so often referred to in intelli-
gent works shows that the knowledge
is not- as widely spread as it deserves
to be. \ o

Hard Work Raising the Senta.
(Special to the Citizen.)
Pensacola, Aug. 14.-The gentlemen
who have the contract for raising the
capsized German bark Senta, in the
bay, are having ill luck. After expend-
ing some time in attempting to pump
the water out of the big iron hull, they
stopped the pumps and made an ef-
fort to raise the vessel by sheer force.
Monday night they had the cabin for
enough above the surface to discover
that three large ventilators were open,
which made it impossible for the pumps
to free the vessel ,of water. The pumps
'were again put at work ,and the ves-
sel was coming up steadily yesterday,
when some part of the. tackle gave
way, and the large hull sank back, .and
is again full of water. No work is be-
ing done on her to-day, but the con-
tractors are maturing another plan for
raising her, which they say will be, put
in operation to-morrow. Their fifteen-
day limit for placing the vessel on an
even keel, alongside, a wharf expired
Monday night, and they are now for-
feiting $150 per day.

crack American schooner cruiser Yam-
pa and AMr. Fred K. Wills' English
cruiser schooner Amphitrite started in
a race for a prize of 100. over the old
Queen's course. The Amphitrite won
easily without her time allowance. She
was sailed by Captain Gomes of the
The contest grew out of the fact that
when the Yampa won Lord Iveagh's
200 guinea cup on WVedne-sday last.
over the same course, the A.-phitrite
being second, Mr. Wills protested
against the cup being awarded to, the
Yampa on the ground that the latter
carried men in excess of the number
allowed by the rules governing the con-
test Mr. Palmer did not deny this.
but claimed that he could not have
sailed his yacht with a less number .of
men. The affair ended in an arrange-
ment being made, under the auspices
