BRIDGING ACROSS MTE SEA.
From Dover to Calais-The Scheme for
Conneclnl England and France
--hall it be by Bridge or Tuuinesl
The GenevaColinient of a reeen te

The scheme for connecting England
and France by means of a tunnel under
the straits -f Dover appears to have
been definitely abandoned. The work
of boring lately undertaken has, it ap-
pears, verified the forebodings of those
who believed in the existence of fissures
in the stratum of such a character as to
offer a most serious obstacle to the
undertaking. Under these circum-
stances a new idea has been broached-
to unite the two coasts by a gigantic
way ; half bridge, half isthmus. This
scheme has been fully set forth by M.
Versed de St. Anne, an emi-
nent French engineer, and is thus
described in the Examiner of Satur-
ay -. M. Chevalier's tunnel was to
een dug at a depth of 410 feet
beloIN channel, and was to bave
been. abol miles in length, whereas
M. Verard deo Anne's bridge, start-
ing from-Folkeston to Cape Grisnez,
will be only 21 mile Besides, be-
tween the two points lie-he Varne and
the Calbart, two banks nich dreaded
by navigators, formed of kro strong
and resisting calcareous jg. q'"' "
covered by water ranging front' .
feet in depth. In consequence oT-B
shallowness of the water covering it-
and the great solidity of the rock com-
posing it, the Varne will form the pivot
of the undertaking. Its distance from
.--olkestone is about eight miles, and
the depth of the intervening channel
about 28" fathoms. Taking, therefore,
the extent of bank at six miles, the dis-
tance then to Cape Grisnez is about
eight and one-half miles. In this dis-
tance, a depth of water of about 25
fathoms prevails for some -three miles, -
the remainder having a depth of about
13 fathoms, and the average depth
throughout being about 16 fathoms.
SIt is proposed that the foundations
of the bridges should be constructed on
the newly-improved system, consisting
of rock work made of large blocs of
quarry stone of sufficient size and
weight not to be displaced by the regu-
lar ebb and flow currents of the tides,
those being the only influences likely
to affect detrimentally the substructure
within a certain depth, as the action of 0
violent storms is known not to be felt
below a certain distance from the sur-
face. A fortunate accident of the situ-
ation, moreover, is that both coasts of ]
the straits can furnish in abundance
sufficient stone, and cement for the
whode construction.
"M. Verard St. Anne, undeterred by
the gigantic nature of an undertaking s
which should furnish an easy road of i
i'rtertommunication between the two
c6ibtries, affording a means of transit
for railways, for carriages and for eques r
rians, and even pedestrians, by means t
of a continuous and solid open air d
route, without bidding good-by to the b
light of day for a dreadful hour and ]
three-quarters, as would be the case r
with thetunnel of M. Chevalier, goes e
still further, and proposes to construct 1
a haven of-refuge on the Varne, thus t
regularly turning table on the elements
and substituting safety for danger. i
Such an undertaking would be likely
to possess in itself the elements of a t
commercial successindependently of the b
bridge; and one being the compliment (
of the other, both undertakings would
; mutually contribute to form an enor-
mous revenue, such as to encourage l
hose ihoh, believing in the practicabil-
'ity of o the bridge, have doubted its com- 8
suercial success to support the proposal
Should the most sanguine expectations
never be realized, still there can be no
doubt that, in comparison with the
tunnel scheme, the bridge has by far
the greater ground for hope, especially
If the relative expenses are compared
w one another. The modest sum
asked by the promoters of the tunnel
scheme for preliminary expenses aldue
is set down from 1,000,000 to 1,-
I00,000, and the period of time
to be expended in purely pre-
liminary experiments may be from five
to ejityjs, and at any moment the ,
'- fall entirely through,
.... .oreohs taa.e ie met with
xy* eccide.. .- ihre r mid- d
So much for the preliminary part,
formidable enough in itself. But when
we come to the expe he enter-
prise itself we find 20,000,000 to be
the approximate estimate. By the side
of these figures the demands of the
bridge scheme seem insignificant, 40,-
000 only is the sum set down for pre-
liminary investigation and prepara-
tory scientific works-and the time
to be expended thereon is ebti-
mated at less than a year-while
the total cost for the whole work
is calculated to fall short of $12,000,-
000. Every operation in connection
with the bridge can be carried on in
full daylight, and all tests and expert
mentsmade under ordinary conditions--
a consideration of some importance, as
likely to inspire the confidence of the
public, and the more readily to enable
physical obstacles to be overcome.
't'aere are gigantic obstacles to be
opposed no doubt, but in such a pro.
gresive ageas this a great idea, although
ite realization bristles with difficulties is
seldom allowed to be lost. The march


of science carries everything before it,
and so great a power has it become,
that the successful surmounting o0

to be regard ed 1 a simple mechanical

AN OUTRAGE ON STOCKHOLDERS.

The San Franclsci "Post's" Ideas on
the Curtli|-Cooppr ltunlines.
[San Francisco Post, Augunt2.]
In these days of universal crooked-
ness it is not surprising to tind crooked
management on the part of a superin-
tendent of a mine. Tte investigation of
what is known as "the widow Coopir
scandal" has unearthed some serious
things against Samuel T. Curtis,
who lately directed the workings
of the Savage, Ophir, Mexi-
can, etc. The Virginia EVENING
CHRONICLE was the first to agitate the
matter, and the testimony which it gave
was so conclusive that the trustees of
the various companies deemed it impor-
tant to make a strict investigation.
The case may be summed up as follows:
A woman was virtually superintending
the mines over which Captain )urtis
was supposed to preside. She kept a
boarding-house in.Virginia City. The
mines were apparently run to keep that
boarding-house going. Stockholders
paid assessments in order that corned
beef -,y cabbage could be profitably
dol'( out to the hungry men. It is
E5'd that the house itself was built out
/6f corporation lumber and painted with
corporation paint. The corporation
wood pile was heavily drawn on at all
times. If a man wanted work in either
the Savage; Ophir or Mexican, he had to
first become a boarder of the female
superintendent. He had also to pay her
a round bonus out of his wages for the
privilege of getting employment. She
discharged this man and took on that
man according as her pecuniary interest
lay. In fact she made it very warm for
the keepers of other boarding houses
through the monopoly she enjoyed. It
is not clear what powerful hold this
woman had over Capnain Curtis that he
should permit these things. When
mines are run in the interest of a board-
ing house, there must be some im-
portant reason underlying the surface.
But when the facts were given to the
stockholders in the public prints, and
men came forward to testify to the
crookedness, Mrs. Cooper's dynasty
tattered, and the boardiig-honse
bubble collapsed. Atthe annual meet-
ing of the Savage, Captain Curtis was
removed from his position. He courted
au investigation. It was given him by
the new Prerident, General Williams,
who personally looked into the case at
Virginia City. The General has since
nad very little to say about the matter
but admits that mismanagement eman-
ating from the Cooper woman has
"sted. The Board of Trustees of the
Sc and Mexican next resolved to in
v3, eColonel C. L. Weller, Presi-
dent" hie companies, was sent to
Virginiac full power to act as his
judgment 0 od. He made a fair and
impartial in ion, giving Captain
Curtis the ben every doubt, and
then removed hH h his position.
But the Cooper erom i s was not
the only discovery t 's made.
Captain Curtis is a default e ex-
tent of $32,000. It will be j our
telegraphic columns that Gea.
Ford, the bookkeeper of the Ophind
Mexican, has been arrested for embez-
zling a large amount of money from the
companies as well. Mrs. Cooper has
evidently had a demoralizing effect on
the mning industry. We trust that
Colonel Weller and the Board of Trus-
tees will sift this matter to the very
bottom. It is an outrage to stock.
holders to have their property and
noney wasted as it has been and is one
of the many things which lessens the
value of our securities in the market.

REFORM IN MINE IlNAGEIENT.
Tie First Vigorous Effort to Cut Off
the Excreasences-sihe Direct Raill
road.
[San Francisco Daily Exchange, Aug. 2.1
Everybody is waiting for that lucky
stroke of the pick that is going to bring
ife to the street, and pending its com-
ng there is but little to talk about but
reform. Happily this essential element
:o recuperation is taking shape. Presi-
lent Williams of the Savage set the
ball in motion two weeks ago, and now
President Weller of Ophir and Mexican
turns from an investigating tour, cov-
ered with the bays of victory. The
atter gentleman seems to have applied
the knife with invigorating effect. *
All this means coin in the
pockets of stockholders, and we hail it
is the first vigorous and practical effort
;o cut off the excrescences. If report
be true, there are other mines on the
Comstock that are marked for the
pruning knife. Trustees seem aroused
at last to the fact that that end of the
ine is a good place to begin the work.
There are abuses in Virginia by the
score that need prompt correction. Let
every pay-roll be overhauled; let every
account for wood and supplies be itam-
zed, and a voucher for every dollar of
expenditure be required. And now we
hear of a plan for a new railroad which
shall shorten distances and cut down
freights. The Virginia CHRONICLE
opens the ball and demands that a rail-
road be built to the Truckee river, nine-
teen miles long, and claims that the
project meets with favor everywhere.
It says the road can be built and
equipped for $550,000, and make a large
saving on ore shipments, crushing,
and wood supplies. Ores that are now
costing $12 per ten to extract and mill
will cost by tle proposed route $5,
thereby enabling many assessment
mines to pay dividends, and mines of
low grade ore to start up at once. If
the road will do that we say build it.
What is $550,000 against such advan-
tages? It is no time" to consider
whether Mr. Sharon's interests or Mr.
Anybody Else's interests are at stake in
such a project. Thething to be thought
of is : Will it lessen the cost to stock-
holders of developing and working the
great Comstook lode, upon which so
much of the material prosperity of our
coast depends ? If it will, then let us
have the road. At any rate, something
must be done, or the mining interests
on the Con1stock will continue to flag
until but little is left of- them.

THE RIVAL CITIES.
Hot Shot Flying Helwee'n Philadelphia
and rPiltsburg.
(Philadelphia Times, July 24.1
Pittsburg has sown to the wind for
years, and now the whirlwind comes in
all its unspeakable terrors. The mob
that mocks her lives, her property, her
laws and her peace has not been created
in a day, nor in a week, nor in a month,
nor in a year. Its seed has been scat-
tered by the lawlessness of respectable
mien and pretentious for 20 years, and
it has been watered from the rostrum
and from the press and from political
deliverances of both parties, until it has
borne its logical harvest. And
to-day, where will the hissing streams
of agrarian lava reach? Into whose
storehouse will it enter? Upon what
trade will it pour its deadly flood?
What class of property will it grasp for
its enforced tribute? What homes will
it mark for desolation to-morrow ? And
this is the reign for which a community,
as a community, has practically pro-
claimed its sympathy, and that the
press of the second city of the State
treats as a dispute between a corpora-
tion and a few scores of employes.
[Pittsburg Evening Chronicle, July 25.]
In reply to this, it is only necessary
to say that the city of Pittsburg is as
orderly to-day as Philadelphia; that
the gust expended its force on Sunday;
that law and order asserts itself, and
that the writer of the foregoing would
be just as safe on any street in Pitts-
burg at this writing as in his sanctum.
If this line of argument were applied to
Philadelphia, her record would show
that he people, "as a community,"
without distinction, were in sympathy
with, and were responsible for the
wholesale assassination of negroes, the
ki!litsg of men, women and children
during the "American" and "Know-
Nothing" riots, and burning of
churches. Furthermore, the same sort
(if reasoning must apply to Reading and
Buffalo, in which the vicious elements
have made similar demonstrations,
whose duration seems to have been as
brief as the outbreak in this city. The
citizens of Pittsburg, as a community,
will lose nothing to-day by comparison
with those of Philadelphia.

THE OPSEIRI PROBLEM.
The sudden recall of President Weller
to San Francisco may be taken as an in-
dication that he was finding out more
than it was intended he should. The
San Francisco Post says :
The quidnuncs of California street
are arguing that it would have been
better for the Trustees of the Ophir
and Mexican mines to have smoothed
over the defalcations of their late Su-
perintendent, Samuel T. Curtis, on the
ground that he, becoming desperate,
might, Pinney like, throw certain
charges at them.
It is just possible that "the quid-
nuncs of California street" are pretty
nearly correct in their arguments.. At
the annual meeting of the Ophir Com-
pany in December, 1875-two months
after the great fire-there was a balance
of $211,300 reported on hand. Consid-
ering the great expense incurred in re-
building the hoisting works, etc., the
stockholders felt quite cheerful, and
hoped for dividends soon. But the year
1876 rolled around without any sign of
a dividend, and at the next annual
meeting the stockholders were aston-
ished to find that the enormous sum of
$2,173,100 had been bpent during the
year, as shown here :
Bullion product, 1876..........82,340,800
Balance from December, 1875.. 2.1,300
$2,552,100
Balance on hand Dec., 1876.... 379,000
'TUeaving the year's disbursem'ts.$2,173,100
It will be a difficult task to convince
people here that any such vast sum was
legitimately expended by the Ophir
company in 1876. And when well
grounded doubts are once raised, as to
the honesty of a mine's management, itis
hard to say where they will stop. Thus
it is that many persons do not believe
that $2,340,800 was all that the mine
produced last year. We have some
evidence of peculation in regard to the
bullion product of the old workings of
the mine, and we may rest assured that
the men who would wink at the pilfer-
ings of hundreds of their subordinates,
would not hesitate to pilfer thousands
themselves.
It is our conviction that neither Cur-
tis nor any one else will be prosecuted.
Theyatit know too much.

STEAMS VS. RAILROADS.
.Every few days there appears on our
streets a pleasant reminder of the earlier
days of the Comstock in the shape of a
sixteen-horse.team attached to a wagon
with two back actions, and the whole
loaded with freight from Reno. The last
load brought up -was barley. Two trips
are made weekly, and there is said to be
money in it.-Enterprise of this morning.
What better argument is needed in
favor of theipropased direct railroad to
the Truekee? Of course the item
slipped in. unobserved by Managing
Editor' William Wood, and doubtless
the unhappy reporter will be. hauled
over the coals for it. But it is the cold
truth, nevertheless. At the existing
rates for railroad freight from Reno to
Virginia teamsters could do a profitable
business. Bat if any one were to go
to the expense of stocking the road for
teaming purposes, the V. & T. railroad
would reduce its rates at once and run
the opposition" off. The Enterprise
a few days ago, in an editorial article,
endeavored to show that the railroad
was now charging the lowest rates con-
sistent with a fair profit. Grant this
'to be correct, and the cold business fact
stares us in the face that the old-
fashipaeci teams can do the work
eaaper than the iron horse. Accept-
.ing their own testimony, the absolute
necessity of a cheaper railroad is made
apparent
AN interesting point of law has
arisen in McLean county, Ilinois. The
Judge of the district, while presiding
at a-murder trial, temporarily vacated
his seat, and with the consent of the
prisoner's counsel, placed a well-known
S-member of the bar in his stead. The
prisoner was convicted, but appealed
his case to the Supreme Court of the
: State, which held that the absence of
the District Judge for a time, however
short, was illegal, and that neither the
prisoner nor his counsel could make the
substitute of..another man legal by
heir consent. The higher court has,
therefore, decided-that the accused had
i:: o legal trial, and that ceremony will
have to be gone over once more before
his guilt or innocence can be estab-
lished. "" .

THB telegraph gives this morning the
admirable letter of acceptance of P. M.
Bishop of the Democratic nomination
for Governor of the State of Ohio. It
has about it the ring of the true metal.
"hop is a large-minded,strong-hearted
He is free from conventionalism.
"H a sterling Democrat and un-
.in his political views,
e of ethe mere party man
m. If elected, his administra-


n will be conscientiously conducted
dr the good of all parties. His letter
is a splendid send-off for the campaign
now about opening, and will largely
conduce to a Democratic success this
year in Ohio.
THE San Francisco Chronicle has
resumed the old game of taking the
news of this paper without credit. On
two occasions this.week it caused the
EVENING CHRONICLE'S reports of the
Ophir expose to be telegraphed in full,
and it published them without a word
of credit. This may be what the S. F.
Chronicle calls "enterprise," but among
honorable journals it is called stealing.
Perhaps our-contemporary considers the
terms synonymous.
THE total amount of United States
bonds held as security for circulating
notes of national banks is $337,528,100.
The Secretary of the Treasury yester-
.ay issued the fifty-fourth call for the
.redemption of $10,000,000 of 5-20 bonds
of 1865-$7,000,000 coupon and $3,000,-
-000 registered bonds.

TEm Virginia CHRONICLE says that
the Widow Cooper approached Colonel
Weller a few days ago and told him that
if he would stand in and help out Cur.
tis she would pledge him the use of
15,000 shares of Ophir stock whenever
he wished to use it at an election. Now
the question is, where did the Widow
get 15,000 shares of Ophir? If she
doesn't own it herself, whose stock is
it ?-S. F. Daily Exchange.
Our contemporary errs in ascribing
this item to the EVENING CHRONICLE,
but it may be true, nevertheless. Ask
Lucky Baldwin about it.


SAN FRANCISCO.

Special Dispatches to the Evening Chroniole.]
Today's News.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 4. An
attempt was made at an early hour last
night to burn down the residence of
William T. Coleman, the President of
the Committee of Safety, on the south-
west corner of Washington and Taylor
streets. Mr. Coleman and his family
were absent from the city. The only
occupants were a servant and a clerk.
The latter was attracted by the noise
and on going out found a portion of the
back building on fire. The fire was ex-
tinguished by buckets of water. At
the same time some one ran to the
nearest fire alarm box at the corner of
Clay and Taylor streets and found that
it had been tampered with and could
not be used. Two boxes of tar were
found in the space between the kitchen
and the billiard room.
A MISCHIEF-MAKER SET FREE.
C. H. Alenchester, one of the men
arrested upon the charge of having dis-
tributed circulars of an incendiary
character, was called for trial in the
City Court yesterday, when his counsel
moved for a dismissal of the complaint
on the ground that the offense charged
does not come within the .ordinance
under which the prosecution was
brought. The motion was granted and
the defendant discharged.
TWO NEW ORLEANS DEFAULTERS.
Among the passengers leaving here
on the eastward overland train yester-
day morning were Lewis B. Lawn of
the firm of Lawn, Carr & Co., New Or-
leans, and Edward Fulton, the default-
ing tax collector of New Orleans. Lawn
was arrested here some ten days ago for
forging bills of lading of cotton to the
amount of $140,000. The sufferers
were : The Citizen's Bank $95,000 and
Seligman, Hellman & Co. the balance.
Lawn, in his flight, went to Texas,
thence to Chicago, Baltimore, Eng-
land, Brazil, Chile, and from
thence to. this city. He
had no money of consequence with him
when arrested here. He states he per-
petuated the forgeries to help the firm
out of difficulties occasioned by the
fall in the price of cotton. Fulton, the
defaulting Tax Collector, is wanted for
the embezzlement of official funds
amounting to $21,000. He was arrested
here some weeks since on a telegraphic
requisition, and expressed his perfect
willingness to go back. He was allowed
his liberty, being only required to re-
port at the prison every morning,
awaiting some one from New Orleans.
Detective Miner of New Orleans has
charge of the prisoners. The matter
has been kept very quiet by the
authorities.
BOGART VS. DALZIEL.
R. D. Bogart, editor of the Daily
Exchange, yesterday swore out a war-
rant charging D. Dalziel of the Mail
with libel. Dalziel was arrested in the
afternoon and released on filing a bond
in $1,000. The ground of complaint is
an editorial in the Mail of yesterday
morning, in which Bogart is called a
disgrace to his profession, a blackguard,
and other pet names.
MOVEMENTS OF POLITICAL CONVENTIONS.
The Taxpayers' Committee of Forty-
eight, who endeavor to keep their pro-
ceedings secret, met in the Nineteenth
District Court-room last evening, but
were interrupted by reporters in the
attic boring through the ceiling to listen
to their proceedings, whereupon the
meeting hastily adjourned to the Cham-
ber of Commerce, where they were
more secure from interlopers.
The Democratic Taxpayers' Commit-
tee of Forty-one of the Twelfth Sena-
torial District (the anti-Brady and
Mannix crowd) have agreed to indorse
the ticket of the Taxpayers' Committee
of Forty-eight, and in return will be
given a nomination of Supervisor from
the Seventh Ward and Superintendent
of Streets. Last evening they nomi-
nated Henry H. Inkson for the former
position and John Hughes for the latter.
The Anti-Chinese and People's Re-
form Committee last evening nominated
A. J. Bryant, the present incumbent
for Mayor.
MISCELLANEOUS.
A meeting of wealthy and influential
citizens was held at Dashaway Hall last
night to consider the question of start-
ing a public library. A committee
was appointed to draft a memorial to
the Legislature and receive subscrip-

A Vivid Picture of Last Tuesday's
Conflict.


Nightfall After the Battle-The Fiend-

diers The Retreat
from Plevna.

Special Dispatch to the Evening Chronicle.]
LONDON, August 3.-A correspondent
sends from Poredin, near Plevna, a
graphic account of Tuesday's battle,
which conveys a vivid idea of the extent
of the Russian disaster. The corre-
spondent is with Prince Schackoskoy's
command :
And now all hope of success any-
where was dead, nor did a chance offer
to make the best of the defeat. Prince
Schackoskoy had not a man left to cover
his retreat. The Turks struck without
stint. They had the upper hand for
once and were determined to show they
knew how to make the most of it.
They advanced in swarms through the
dust of their original first position and
captured the Russian cannon before the
batteries could be withdrawn. Turkish
shells began once more to whistle over
the ridge above Radishova and fall into
the village behind, now crammed with
wounded. The streams of wounded
wending their painful way over the
ridge were incessant.
THE DEMONS ABROAD IN THE DARKNESS.
Later, in the darkness, a baleful sort
of Krankentrager swarmed over the
battlefield in the shape of Bashi-Ba-
zouks, who spared not. Lingering there
on the ridge till the moon rose, the staff
could hear from below, on the stillnight
air, cries of pain and entreaties for mer
cy of the bloodthirsty fanatics. Tri-
umph it was indeed; an hour to wring
the sternest heart. We stayed to
learn, if it might be, what troops were
coming up the valley of the shadow of
death below-whether there were in-.
deed any at all to come. The Turks
had our range before dark, and we
could watch the flash of flame over
against us and then listen to the scream
of the shell as it tore by us. The sound
of rifle bullets was incessant, and the
escort and retreating wounded were
struck. The detachment at length
began to come straggling up, but
it will give an idea of the disor-
ganization to say that when a company
was told off to cover somewhat the
wounded in Radishova it had to be
made up of men of several regiments.
About 9 o'clock the staff quitted the
ridge, leaving it littered with groaning
men, andmoving gently, lest we should
tread on the prostrate wounded, wolost
our way as we had lost our army. We
could find no rest for the soles of our
feet by reason of alarms of Bashi-Ba-
zouks swarming in among the scattered
and retiring Russians. At length, at 1
o'clock in the morning, having been in
the saddle since 6 on the previous morn-
ing, we turned into a stubble-field, and
making beds of reaped grain, corre-
spondent and Cossack alike rested
under the stars. But we were not even
then allowed to rest before an alarm
came that the Bashi-Bazouks were
upon us, and we had to rouse and tramp
away.
HAVOC AMONG THE RUSSIAN TROOPS.
Of what in the morning was a fine
army was now a handful of wearied
Oossacks. General Krudener sent
word in the morning that he had lost
severely and could make no headway,
and resolved to fall back on the line of
the river Osma. There had been talk
of his troops, being fresh, renewing the
attack to-day, but it is a plain state-
ment of fact that we have no troops to
attack with. The most moderate esti-
mate is that we have lost two regiments
-say 5,000 men-out of our three
brigades. This takes no account of
General Krudener's losses, Not a Rus-
sian soldier stands between Tirnova
and the Shumla army. I look on Prince
Schackoskoy's force as wrecked, and
as no longer for this campaign to be
counted as a fighting integer.
CRITICAL POSITION OF THE INVADERS.
It is not ten days since the Thirtieth
division crossed the Danube in the
pride of superb condition; now what of
it is left is demoralized and shattered.
So on this side of the Balkans there re-
mains but the Ninth corps, already
roughly handled-once at Nikopolis and
once at Plevna-one division of the
Eleventh corps and the Rustchulk amy.
Now, if the Rustchuk army is marched
to the west against Plevna, then the
Turkish army of Rustchuk is let loose
on the Russian communication to
Tirnova, and one cannot avoid the con-
clusion that the advance over the
Balkans is severely compromised. The
Russian scattered detachments have
been called up from Roumania, and the
Roumanian division, commanded by
General Manu, which crossed a day or
two ago at Nikopolis, has been called
up to the line of the Osma river. We
are falling back with all speed, leaving
the Bulgarian villages to the tender
mercies of the Turks. As I close I
learn that on our left General Skobelloff
was very severely handled, having lost
300 men out of his single infantry
battalion.
THE RETREAT FROM PLEVNA.
LONDON, August 3.-The Daily News'
correspondent with Prince Schackos-
koy's force,- telegraphing from Simnitza
under date of August 1, gives an ac-
count of the retreat of the Russians
from Plevna. He says :
The road from Pouredin to Bulgareni
was enumbbered with broken and re-
treating troops, wholly destitute of or-
der-officers without soldiers and sol-
diers without officers, without cohesion
and mostly without arms. At a narrow
bridge near Bulgareni there was wild
confusion and a complete blockade.
Tumbrills, ambulance wagons, officers'
caleches, led horses and carts filled with
wounded, were all jammed in an inde-
scribable chaos. These had been
wounded all along 'the road, but the
bulk of the wounded began a little be-
yond Bulgareni and extended in
an unbroken line for seven miles
along the road to Sistova.
They were mostly carried in ox carts,


the severe cases in ambulances, and
large numbers tramped on foot. Im-
mense numbers of wounded had tramp-
ed the whole way from the battlefield,
and were already entering Sistova at 6
o'clock yesterday evening. They must
have walked forty miles in twenty-four
hours, wounded as they were. Nearly
all these wounded, however, consisted
of -men who had somehow managed to
walk out of the battle. The bad cases
were mostly left where they felL The
staff of officers (with whose estimate I
am inclined to agree) think that the
whole force lost is between 6,000 and
7,000 men killPd and wounded. The
brigade of the Thirty-second division
suffered most heavily. Besides its ter.
rible lose of men, it sacrificed the impe.


rial banner of one of its regiments. The
whole of the Thirtieth division has been
smitten sorely. All of the three bri-
gades of General Schackoskoy's com-
mand are, for the time, in a state of
disorganization.
TURKISH REINFORCEMENTS GOING TO
ADRIANOPLE,
LONDON, August 4.-The Vienna
correspondent of the Times hears from
Constantinople that reinforcements are
daily arriving and being immediately
dispatched to Adrianople.
THE PANIC OF THE RUSSIANS GROUNDLESS
The Bucharest correspondent says he
thinks the panic in Roumania ground.
less. The Plevna defeat will certainly
be retrieved. Discussing the Russian
chance of holding its positions in the
Balkans if obliged to retire to them, the
Times correspondent, who recently
passed through Ahipka Pass, telegraphs
that it is strongly occupied and forti-
fied. There are already within it many
trains of provisions and forage. Prince
Mireky and General Guarko might hold.

The War in Asia.
FIGHTING NEAR KARS.
ERZEROUM, August 3.-The Russian
center, reinforced by fourteen battal-
ions of infantry and three field batter-
its, has resumed the offensive. There
has been continuous fighting on the ad-
vanced lines before Kars. General Ter-
gukassoff has also been reinforced by
five battalions of infantry, one battery
and a regiment of dragoons. The Rus-
sian right is marching on Perak.
TURKISH MLAN-OF-WAR SILENCES A RUS-
SIAN BATTERY.
LONDON, August 4,-A dispatch from
Sukum-Kaleh, dated August 2, says
the Turkish frigate Manmadich bom-
barded the Russian batteries at Teham-
chira on the 30th ultimo, silencing
every Russian gun. The Manmadich
was considerably damaged and several
of the crew were killed and wounded.
6,000 TURKS RESCUED FROM A TIGHT
PLACE.
Near Tehamchira were 6,000 Turks:
in a critical position, owing to the ad-
vance of the Russian army. Hobart
Pasha embarked the entire force, on the
1st instant, under cover of the guns of
the fleet. This completes the with-
drawal of the Turkish military expedi.
tion to Caucasus. Hobart Pasha has
command of the entire Black Sea forces,
consisting of twenty men-of-wor and
transports.
Greece Preparing for War.
ATHENS, August 3.-The Greek For-
eign Minister has sent a dispatch to the
Greek Minister at Constantinople in-
structing him to verify the alleged mas-
sacres at Kavarna, and if the victims
are Greek to demand full redress and
indemnity, as well as efficacious guar-
antees for the security of Christians.
Sixteen thousand rifles have arrived
from Austria. A regiment of engineers
left last night for Lamia and another
point on the frontier. War is consid-
ered probable.
A royal order has been issued nomi,
nating a staff of the Greek army and
commanders of various brigades, regi-
ments and battalions.
England Delighted with Russla's
Defeat,
CHICAGO, August 3.-An Inter-Ocean
London special says: There is quite
a jubilant feeling here on account of
the Turkish victories. The fact is
recognized that so long as there is a
Russian disaster there is no danger of
English intervention. If possible,
Osman Pasha may take advantage of
the disorder and confusion and effect a
junction with Mehmet Ali at Tirnova
and crush the force of the Grand Duke
concentrated at that point. On the
other hand, if General Krudener has
held his ground, the Russian loss may
be confined to the actual number placed
hours de combat, and reinforcements can
be pressed forward, which will enable
him to renew the attack. In that case
only a diversion in Osman Pasha's favor
by Mehmet Ali could save the former
from defeat. It is believed that the
latter, who is in communication with
Osman Pasha through Constantinople,
will press forward against Tirnova.
THE POLITICAL EFFECT OF THE DEFEAT.
The London Times considers that this
week's work means either the prosecu-
tion of the war with immensely-in-
creased forces and most stubborn reso-
lution on the part of Russia, or else the
acquiescence of that power in a failure
which changes all its relations to its
neighbors. Some important moves on
the political chess board are now ex-
pected. The more pressure the Czar
feels the more will he be inclined to
summon to his aid the lesser national-
ities. Austria has shown that she holds
the fate of the Bulgarian campaign in
her hands. The slightest menace on
her part would compel the Russians to
recross the Danube and conquer the
Austrian army before they could pro-
ceed with their operations against the
Turks. For the time being England is
out of the range of the complications,
and can afford to remain quiet so long
as there is a prospect of the continental
pDwers having to defend their national
interests.
Gloom in Russia.
LONDON, August 4.-To retrieve the
great disaster at Softcha and Plevna has
now become an imperative necessity for
the Russian commander-in-chief, for
reasons political as well as strategical.
Gloomy forebodings fill the Russian
press, and the people are haunted with
the dread of coming evil. It may be
taken for granted that the Russian
Government will place the last regi-
ment in the field. There is a prospect
of one of the most fiercely-contested'
wars Europe has ever seen.
Turkish War Notes.
Bashi-Bazouks have appeared near
Sistova. It is thought to bp a mere
detachment, ibt indicating the presence
of a large Turkish force.
It is reported that everything on the
other side of the Balkans is to be aban-
doned by the Russians, except the
Shipka Pass.
Redif Pasha has been taken suddenly
ill and is not expected to live a week.
Rumors of the cause of his illness are


plentiful.
Six thousand more Egyptian troops
are reported on their way to Constan-
tinople.
Prince Milan of Servia has ordered
3,000 militia out to act as a frontier
guard.
Colonel Wellesley, British attache te
the Hungarian Embassy, has been or-
dered home. His relations with the
Russians were too cordial.

Adelina Patti vs. Her Husband.
PARIS, August 4.-Adelina Patti's
case has been decided. Both the lady
and her husband had filed applications
for judicial separation. MadamePatti's
application was refused and her hus-
band's granted. The sentence states
that Madame Patti does not even offer
to bring forward any proofs of the
facts she alleges. On the other hand,
the documents placed before the Tri-
bunal, particularly the correspondence
addressed to Madame Patti by a third
person, shows that her conduct did
gravest injury to her husband. The
Court therefore pronounces against her
petition for a separation of body and
goods and condemns her to pay the
costs. As divorce is unrecognized by the
French law, neither party cau marry
again. The sitting was public and the
Marquis do Caux was present when tlhe
decision was rendered by the Tribunal,

The Funeral of Custer and His Cornm

LEAVENWORTH, August 3.-The re-
mains of General Custer, Captain Yates,
Lieutenants Mackintosh, Smith and
Cohain, arrived yesterday afternoon and
were deposited in the chapel, where a
guard of honor was stationed. A large
number of people visited the chapel this
morning to view the remains. The
funeral took place to-day. Mrs. Gen-
eral Sherman, General and Mr. Pope,
General and Mrs. Laxton and other
distinguished persons were present.
The remains were taken to the ceme-
te'y, about a mile distant. In the pro-
etision were nearly 300 carriages. All
the leading citizen were present. The
fact that the lamented dead were well
known and honored by our people
created an intense feeling of sympathy
among the entire community. Arriving
at the cemetery the Episcopal service
was read and a salute of three volleys
was fired over each grave.
Burning of the Largest Salt Works In
the World.
CHICAGO, August 3.-A Times East
Saginaw special says: At 1:30 o'clock
this morning the most disastrous fire
that has visited Saginaw valley for six
years broke out in the steam saw mill
and salt works of Burt & Co., at Mel-
bourne, eight miles from this city. The
salt works were the largest in the world,
their total capacity being 550 barrels
per day. All was destroyed, together
with 1,000 feet of dockage, 6,000,000
feet of lumber, 50,000 barrels of salt,
and a large amount of shingles, staves,
heading, etc. The capital invested in
the works was $250,000. The dead loss
is not less than $175,000. The insu-
rance is estimated at $80,000. The pay
rolls of the establishment amounted to
$20,000 per week. Two hundred and
fifty men are thrown out of employ-
ment. The blow is a paralyzing one to
Saginaw valley.
Lots of Currency on Hand.
WASHINGToN, August 3.-Secr etary
Sherman and Assistant Secretary Mc-
Cormick recently called attention to
the fact that nearly $66,000,000 in legal
tender notes, against which certificates
of deposit have been issued, lie idly in
the vaults of the Treasury Department.
They have interpreted this as indicat-
ing that the volume of the currency in
the country is, to say the least, not
contracted. Indeed, this large surplus
shows, in their estimation, that about
one-sixth of the entire volume of legal
tender notes is not needed for circula-
tion at all. Some anti-contractionists
have criticized thii interpretation of
-the issue of certificates ot deposit and
have denied that it indicates any ple-
thora of legal tender currency.
Ben. DeBar, the Actor, Dying.

pronounces the case serious if not hope-
less, there being, beside a paralysis of
the limbs and other parts of the bod y,
a softening of portions of the brain.
Mr. DeBar is the oldest theatrical
manager in the country, and the oldest

THE PLOT AGAINST GROVER.
Another Crushins IBlow for the Con.
splrators.
-Special Dispatch to the Chronicle.]
PORTLAND, August 3.-During the
course of investigation before the COn-
gressional Comittee charges of cor-
ruption were preferred against Senator
Grover, and frequent allusion made by
numerous witnesses to Goldsmith, a
well-known merchant and banker of
this city. Statements were made which
tended to implicate him as being inti-
mately connected with the corrupt
schenie of securing Grover's election by
money. Following is an affidavit Gold-
smith made in New York, July 12,
relative to the investigation then being
held here. The official document was
received here to-day, and filed in the
office of the Secretary of State :
My name is B. Goldsmith; place of
residence, Portland. I am here at
present with my son, who is under
medical treatment, and am, therefore,


unable to proceed to Oregon to give
verbal testimonyin the examination now
pending before the Congressional Com-
mittee in relation to the election of L.
F. Grover to the United States Senate.
I am the B. Goldsmith to whom refer-
ence is made by Hon. J. W. Nesmith,
U. S. Marshal Waters and J. M. Johns
in their testimony before said commis-
sion, as having furnished or used money
to influence or procure the election of
said Grover to the United States Sen.
ate, and I further state that I was in
Salem, Oregon, during the session of
the Legislature at which the election of
United States Senator was pending and
on the day said election took place; and
I, on oath, declare that I have not fur-
nished or used any money, either di-
rectly or indirectly, to influence the
vote of any member of the Leigislature,
either for caucus hoinination or for vot-
ing for United States Senator in joint
session ; and T further declare that, in
conversation with said Grover prior to
his election, he told me that he had no
money to spend forthis eleQtion,and that


he did not wish any of his friends tl
use any for him ; and that I have no
other motive in inrmking this declaration
than that justice may be done."
GBseral Granit's Successor.
Truth announces that London society
having lost General Grant, it has in-
stantly taken up with a new lion, the
Khan of Kashgar, of whom England
makes much. as he may be of great use
to her in case of a grapple with the
Russian bear, Kashgar lying on the
Asiatic frontier of the Russian Empire.
The Khan attended a ball at Lady
Stanley of Alderley's, and thus Truth
describes him: "The chieftain re-
mained in an outer room for some time,
but when he did enter the ball-room
he at once strode so far into it that
many poor weaklings who had been
feebly struggling around the doorway
were enabled to follow in his wake to
the very edge of the circle in which the
dancing was going on. Seeing this
stride, one could imagine what it must
be when the Khau's foot is on his
native heath, and his name it is good-
ness knows what. 'I wondered what
his thoughts were, that sad and silent
man,' as he stood watching the waltz-
ers, and I meantime admired the tex-
ture and color of his long pelisse of
grayish brown damask. His large,
broad face is not handsome, but he
looks good-natured, and perhaps is so,
though it is especially true of Asiatic
princes that trust in them may be mis-
placed."

A STOCK OF PRAIRIE CHICKENS.
The Virginia Sporting Club Going to
Plain a Lot of the Birds.
The Sporting Club of this city has
made arrangements with parties in the
eastern part of the State for a number
of prairie chickens, which are to be
liberated at some point selected by the
club, for breeding purposes. They in-
crease very fast and if they can be
saved from the depredations of pot-
hunters they will, in a few years,
swarm over the country in thou.
sands. The prairie chicken is one
of the best game birds that cleaves the
air. It rises well, flies from the hunter
in a straight liie, and can be easily
taken on the wing. In Nebraska it is
generally hunted from carriage. Two
men go out, and drive through the long
grass, givingg the horse a loose rein.
The chickens rise on each side. sprung
from cover by the wheels,and the hunt-
ers bang away right ani left, while the
horses, plunging through clover up to
their heads, cannot gain sufficient head-
way to do any damage. After running
a few hundred yards through a covey,
the hunters hold up and let the dogs
bring in the killed. We could do it
that way here-if we h-d the clover.

A MAGNIFICENT 8 LFE.
The Newest Addition to the Virginia
Savings IBank- The Lock Itegluated
by Clockwork.
A new safe for the Virginia Savings
Bank is now on exhibition at the store
of J. C. Hampton & Co. It is a clock-
lock safe, and probably the most elabo-
rately made affair of the kind ever
brought to this coast. It was manu-
factured by Macneale & Urban, Cin-
cinnati, and cost $3,100. Its weight is
7,000 pounds, and when closed the lock
can be set to open at any time within
fifty-six hours. Two delicate pieces of
clockwork are on the inside of the
door, ticking under a glass case, and if
one gets out of order, the other, acting
independently of it, does the business.
It can be set to, open at any time, and
then the maker himself cannot open it
except at the hour that the clockwork
turns the bolt. It also has a combina-
tion independent of the clockwork. It
is a wonderful piece of mechanism and
is visited daily by scores of people.

AN INSANE MAN.
Violent Demonstrations or the Afallcted
Individual.
About half-past 9 o'clock this morn-
ing officers Kenny and Bradley were
called upon to arrest a crazy individual
who was making violent demonstrations
at Tom Delehanty's house, back of the
Hale and Norcross works. The officers
procured an express wagon and took
the man to the city jail, whence he was
carried to the county hospital His
name is Con. Flynn. He is a native of
Ireland, aged about 25 years. He has
resided here for eight or nine years,
the last four of which he was employed
'as a laborer on the Virginia and Truckee
railroad. He has become gradually in-
sane, and was comparatively quiet until
three or four days ago, when his friends
found it necessary to keep a constant
watch upon him. Last night, after his
watchers had gone to bed, he escaped
from the house, and nothing was seen
of him until late this morning, when he
was recaptured in a ravine by the Mint
mine and taken home. It was then de-
cided by his friends.to turn him over to
the authorities. If his lunacy proves
of a persistent character he will be sent
to Woodbridge, Cal.

The International Social Hops.
The first of the series of the Interna-
tional Hote hops will take place on
Friday evening next. These parties
will be of an entir ly social character,
and confined exclusive'-i to the guests
of the house. Theywill continued
throughout the Winter season at inter-
vals of about one month. A gooi band
will be engaged, and everything that
will tend to the comfort of its patrons
will be fully considered. The invita-
tions for the opening party will bh out
in two or three days. From what has
been said it will be observed that full
ball-room dress will not be en re/le ; at
the same time a man invading the hall
in a claw-hammer and lavender kids
(a la the Entre Nonus Club) will not be
fired out by the floor-managers. '

A Painful Accident.
Night before last, about 10 o'clock, a
lady who was passing near the Savage
wood-pile slipped, and in falling caught
the wood to save herself. This caused
a heavy stick to fall, which broke her
right arm in two places below the
elbow. The bones protruded through
the flesh and made an ugly wound. Dr.
F. W. Conn set the bones and the pa-
tient is now doing well. She was going
to nurse a sick child when the accident
happened.


Captain Jack's New ItIlle.
Captain Jack Crawford received by
express this morning the latest patent
of the Winchester rifle, direct from the
company's manufactory, New Haven.
It is an improved pattern of the gun
with which the Turks (from their in-
trenchments) made such havoc among
the Russians a few days ago. It was
presented to Jack by the company,
with 100 rounds of cartridges, and is
on exhibition at the Delta.
A Alan Who Wouldn't Take $6,700.
Official tender of $6,709 58, coin, in
full payment of his claim against the

of the court-house, was to-day made to

Accident in the Con. Virginia.
About 4 o'clock yesterday morning
William Barrett, while engaged retim-
bering the winze between the 1200 and
1300 levels of the Con. Virginia, fell
sixty feet to the bottom. At the time
of the accident he was using an ax, and
the jarring of the blows loosened some
rocks above him. These came tumb-
ling down, breaking' the platform on
which he was standing, and precipitat,
ing man and all down the winze. Mr.
Barrett was hurt. The ax inflicted two
wounds-one in the arm and one in the
knee. He was battered and bruised
from head to foot, but the most serious
of all his injuries were in his side,
which was literally pounded to a jelly.
He was taken to his room, where Dr.
Grant dressed his wounds, after which
he was sent to St. Mary's Hospital,
where he will have the best of care and
attendance.

A Squabble In a Saloon.
About 7 o'clock this morning a dis.
pute arose in a saloon on North C
street, between Ike Bremen and Johnny
Williams, a brother of Bing Williams,
when the latter interfered, probably to
prevent a quarrel. Bremen thereupon
declared that he could whip both Bing
and Johnny Williams, one at a time,
whenever they felt like disputing that
fact. A friend took Bing away, other-
wise there miggt have been a tussle
light then and there. Bremen is areso-
lute-looking, compactly-built little man,
weighing about 160 pounds. There is
some talk of a match between the re-
spective friends of the parties. Both
are Englishmen.

PUFFING A MINE.
The Solid Silver Claim-No Reporters
Allowed Inslde-F'aIlsec Satements
Exposed.
In reply to an article in the CHPRONI-
CLE of last Thursday correcting its false
reports about the mine known as the
Solid Silver, the Gold Hill News of yes-
terday descends to a vulgar personal
attack on the dining reports of this
paper. Finally it comes to the point
as follows :
He states what is false when he says
that the mine is not being worked, or that
our report of it is not perfectly correct.
Even the Enterprise of this morning
catches him out, as follows : "Eight men
in two shifts are at present employed in
the Solid Silver mine, Cedar Hill."
The reporter of the CHRONICLE vis-
ited the mine yesterday afternoon at
half-past 5 o'clock. The tunnel was
locked up. The dump showed that
not more than a ton of new stuff had
been thrown there for some time. In-
quiry was made of several of the neigh-
bors as to whether any work was doing
in the claim. Yes," was the usual
reply, there's one or two chaps come
around once in a while, but I reckon
they're not working much." The re-
porter found John Steele, who used to
be superintendent, and asked if he
knew anything about the mine.
Mr. Steele-Yes, I know about $930
worth about it.
Reporter-How is that ?
Mr. S.-Well, they owe me that for
wages. I sued and got judgment, anid
when Judge Rising gets back to town
I'll sell the whole concern out at
Sheriff's sale.
Rep.--How long is it since you quit
work there ?
Mr. S. -Last March.
Rep. -Was there any winze ?
Mr. S.--Yes, there was an old winze
about 40 feet deep, but it's full of foul
air.
Rep.-Did you read the CHRONICLE'S
article on the mine ?
Mr. S.-Yes, and it was all correct,
except you said there was no winze,
which there is.
Rep.-That 40-foot hole, full of foul
air ?
Mr. S.-Yes.
This morning D. J. Elliott called at
the CHRONICLE Office. He is an owner
in the claim, and has been working
there. He says the winze is 75 feet
deep, but he had no authority to allow
a CHRONICLE reporter to go in and see
for himself.
Rep.-The EAterprise of yesterday
says two shifts of men are working
there-four on each shift. Is that so ?
Mr. E.-No, there are only two men
working there since the end of July.
Rep.--What are the two men work-
ing at ?
Mr. E.-Bailing water out of the
winze.
Rep.-With a bucket?
Mr. E.-Yes.
This is the mine of which the Gold
Hill News of Thursday speaks as fol-
lows:
"The crosscuts both east and west
from the main tunnel or adit are
being pushed ahead as lively as
the hard nature of the ground
will allow of, showing good pros-
pects at both points, The winze below
the tunnel is making good progress,
although considerable water is met
with. The bottom is in quartz, which
assays from $40 to $60 to the ton."
The Enterprise of this morning re-
hashes the same yarn. One of the San
Francisco papers of Thursday last had
this paragraph :
"Solid Silver is now one of the liveliest
little stocks on. the list. The mine, which
is on the Comstock, is said to be turning
up a nice body of ore and is preparing, to
crush it."
There is an evident well-laid plot toa
deceive the public in regard to this
claim, and the CHRONICLE has felt itto
be its duty to state the facts. The only
trouble about the title is an adverse
claim of the Jacob Little Company,
which covers only a portion of this
ground.

THE BACK-TAX hBITS.
The District Attorney Declares that
He Won't Work wtll; Lewls a DoEena
and Jlonas beely.
At the County Commissioners' meet-
ing this morning communications were
received from Jonas Seely and Lewis &
Deal, accepting their appointment to
assist the District Attorney in prose-
cuting the bullion-tax suits to a collec-
tion. They were ordered received and
spread upon the minutes.
The District Attorney said that, as
the Board was aware, he was absent
last Saturday when the Board took ac-
tion on this bullion tax business. He
objected to the appointment of Lewis &
Deal and Jonas Seely, for ten per cent.
of the gross amount recovered by each
firm, and said he would resist, so far as
he could, the payment of the rates
agreed upon. He thought attorneys
fully as competent could be secured for
less money. He had as much respect
for those gentlemen as any one
present; but he could get others to
work harmoniously for a great deal
less. He had been informed that Mr.
Stely had business in California that
would occupy a large share of his time,
and he could not give his whole atten-
tion to these suits. Messrs. Dickson &
Kirkpatrick were able lawyers; so was
Judge Belknap. Any of these, he
thought, could be got for five per cent.
Did they as a board say that when
they could get counsel for five per cent.
they preferred to pay ten? As to the
partners of Kirkpatrick & Dickson, who
were formerly District Attorneys,
hence were supposed to be of the
opinion that the taxes were not col-
lectible, he cared nothing for that, and
notified the Board that Lewis & Deal
and Jonas Seely should not appear with
him for that amount of money.
GOING TO DO IT ALL HIMSELF.
[In conversation with a CHRONICLE
reporter Mr. Drake said that he would
positively refuse the co-operation of the
gentlemen named, unless they were
willing to accept a smaller rate of com-
pensation-say five, seven, or even
eight per cent. Rather thatha t hey
should receive more, he would do all
the work himself.--REP.]

On the side of the hill betiveen Whitewood and

Where the wild roses bloom over the breast

The green boughs are waving far up over-

While under the sod and the flow'rets reposes
The brave and the dead.
Did I know him in life 7 Yea, as brother knows

I knw him and loved him-'twas all I could
give,
My love. But the fact is weloved one another,
And either would die that the other might
live.
Rough in his ways ? Yes, but kind and good-
hearted ;
There wasn't a fliw In the heart of Wild Bill,
And well I1 emeniber the dlay that he started
That grave-yard on top of the hill.

And Costcr said, Billnever backed.'
He called me his "k d "-Buffalo Bill was his

And in fact he knew more than us bo'h;
And, though we have shared both in sorrow and

And now let me show you the good that was in

The letters he wrote to his Agnes-his wife.
Why, a look or a smile, one kind word could

A BERLIN SCANDAL.
A Case Which Will Show Up the Bar.
ons and Cavallers.
BERLIN, July 10.-What is likely to
prove a highly scandalous and enter-
taining cause celebre will soon be brought
to trial in this city. Mie. S. has suc-
ceeded in swindling-that is, she is ac-
cused of having done so-a goodlynum-
her of officers in the army and scions of
mobility in a noteworthy way. She an-
nounced through the public press that
she could bring about marriages be-
tween such people and wealthy ladies
who could bring their husbands dow-
ries of from $60,000 to $500,000. Her
announcement, as may readily be be-
lieved, did not remain unanswered by
sons of the first families and cavaliers
of rank and position. The shrewd old
lady-she is old enough to be a grand-
mother-brought about meetings be-
tween the money-seeking lovers and
some pretty women who would come to
take ein Tasschen Kaffee with her,
whereupon the officers would drop in
and be introduced to them, the ancient
lady telling the lovers, sub rosa, which
one was worth her $100,000 or $150,-
000, and which was the great $500,000
prize. Naturally the gentlemen wished
at once to come to business, nor was
Mine. S. a whit behind them in anxiety.
The would-be husbands gave her money
advance to secure her services, and
Vso bonds, or evidences of debt, con-
ngent on the success of her maneu-
ers, but unsigned. To these latter she
forged the names of the distinguished
men who had written them, and thus
raised considerable sums of money,
when suddenly her tricks were discov-
ered and some of the men, even for
their own "honor's sake would not
keep silent. She has been indicted,
and when the case comes up for trial
all Berlin expects to see some very
pretty revelations. Doubtless all Ber-
lin will not be disappointed.

$500,000 for a Dead Man.
The actions of men are generally dic-
tated by metaphysical considerations,
and not by material interests. This is
curiously illustrated by the story of the
Rev. Thomas Baker, rector of Hartle-
bury, in England, who has just died.
His living was worth $10,000 a year,
and he held it for fifty years, and yet
died a poor man, all out of a metaphy-
sical consideration. He married a
daughter of Dr. Carr, Bishop of Worces-
ter, an intimate friend of George IV.
For the sake of the King, Dr. Carr had_
incurred a large debt, and when he died
the Sheriff seized his body. Now, the
body of this dead man was of no mate-
rial use to any one, and it made no
practical difference either to the de,
ceased or to his relations whether the
Sheriff buried it. as he must finally do,
since he could not keep it, or whether
it was buried in the ordinary manner
by his friends. Nevertheless Mr.
Baker1 in order to recover the body of
his father-in-law, undertook to pay the
debt for which it had been seized ; and
during the whole of his fifty years' in-
cumbency, every cent that he was able
to save went in that way. The amount
which he thus paid is said to have been
$500.000, and while paying it he lived
a life of extreme privation and poverty,
and finally died a poor man-all be-
cause of a metaphysical idea.

Three Rlbi Broken In the Cnrry Mine.
About 5 o'clock last evening Mike
Gorman, a giraffe-man employed in the
Gould and Curry mine, fell down the
ore-chute below the 1700 level, a depth
of about twenty-three feet, and received
severe internal injuries. Upon being
taken to the surface he was able to
walk home, and did not appear to be
badly hurt, but at an examination made
today it was ascertained that he had
three ribs broken and other injuries.
At the time of the accident the man
was walking along the main drift on
the 1700 level, and coming to the
chute, walked right into it.
