Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers 
to the Parrior who also feel desirous of 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have 
been readers of the Parriot for a quarter, 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Par- 
Riot is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers. 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Patriot and the DaiLy LEDGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as it is very expensive to collect 
newpaper bills. 

Although Josiah Quincy has declined 
to be considered a candidate for Con- 
gress in this district, he is the strongest 
man the Democrats can name, and he 
will probably be nominated. 

The publication in the LEDGER of 
the valuation of each piece of taxable 
property in the city is awakening con- 
siderable interest among the taxpayers, 
asis shown by the increased demand 
for the paper. Of course everybody is 
anxious to know the assessment on his 
neighbor’s property and he is having 
his curiosity gratified. 

The Herald has discovered the fact 
that the percentage of increase of 
population in the city of Boston is not 
up to that for the State. That of 
Boston being 23.05, and that of Massa- 
chusetts 25.25. This has not been the 
case by previous censuses. Quincy’s 
growth has been twice as rapid as 
either, her percentage being 58. 

Benjamin Franklin’s carefully de- 
vised plan to help posterity by bequests 
to the cities of Philadelphia and Bos- 
ton is likely to end in a lawsuit and the 
diversion of the money, after one hun- 
dred years, to other purposes than he 
intended. The best way to dispose of 
superabundent money is to put it to 
good use during the lifetime of the 

The custom of the Friends to wear 
their hats even in the presence of kings 
and potentates seems to be justified on 
sanitary considerations, if it be true, as 
is now asserted, that the habit of taking 
off the hat in theatres, etc., is a cause 
of catarrh, neuralgia and bronchial 
affections. There have been several 
instances of persons catching their 
death colds by taking off their hats at 
funeral ceremonies in the open air. 
Perhaps we shall all come to wearing 
our hats even in the churches. 

Monstrous Power of Sea Breakers. 

From experiments made last month at 
Bell Rock and Skerryvole lighthouses, on 
the coast of Scotland, it was found that 
while the force of the breakers on tha 
side of the German ocean may be taken 
at about a ton anda half to every square 
foot of exposed surface, the Atlantic 
side throws breakers with double that 
force, or three tons to the square foot; 
thus a surface of only two square yards 
sustains a blow from a heavy Atlantic 
breaker equal to fifty-four tons. 

In March of this year a heavy gale 
blew for three days and nights at Skerry- 
vole, washing out blocks of limestone 
and granite of three and five tons weight 
as easily as if they had been empty egg 
shells, in some cases throwing them en- 
tirely over the breakwater at Plymouth. 
Over 800 tons of such blocks were washed 
800 feet up the inclined beach after being 
thrown over the breakwater and scat- 
tered about in various directions. 

One block of limestone, estimated to 
be of fifteen tons weight, was moved 
over 150 feet from a place in the surf 
where it had been firmly grounded since 
1697, it having first been rolled in sight 
by the awful gale of the **Windy Christ- 
mas” of that year. This is quite a high 
sea record for 1890, showing that the 
gale of March 8 was the worst known on 

the Scottish coast for 198 years, —Chi:

The Davy Crockett Condemned for Vio- 
lating the Three-Mile Limit Law. 

CHARLOTTETOWN, P. E.1., Oct. 1.—The 
American fishing schooner Davy Crockett, 
which was seized at Souris last week, was 
brought to Charlottetown by Capt. Gor- 
don of the government cruiser Acadia. 
Shortly after arrival Marshal Hiadman of 
the vice admiralty went on board and 
formally arrested the vessel under a war- 
rant which had been taken out on Satur- 
day by Edward J. Hodgson, Q. C., agent 
of the department of justice on the island. 
The schooner was then locked at Peaks 
wharf and the sails were housed. The 
warrant and summons were nailed to the 
mainmast. The crown claims the con- 
demnation of the vessel, tackle, apparel 
and furniture, fishing gear, cargo, seines 
and boats for violations of the treaty of 
1888 and of imperial statutes respecting 
fishing by foreign vessels. 

It is difficult to obtain definite informa- 
tion regarding the evidence on which the 
vessel was seized. The captain and crew 
of the Davy Crockett state that informa- 
tion was giver by the seamen who de- 
serted in August last, but it is certain 
that Capt. Gordon acted on other evi- 
dence, which leaves but little doubt as to 
the guilt of the schooner. Although the 
charge as specified appears in the papers 
in the vice admiratity court, it is generally 
known that the offense charged is for fish- 
ing off the port of Mualpeque, P. E.L, 
within the three mile limit, also for land- 
ing bait at the same place, The crew re- 
main on board pending the arrival of the 
managing owner, when the vessel will 
probably be bailed pending a hearing. 


An End to the Employment of Indians 
for Exhibition Purposes. 

NEw York, Oct. 1.—The employment of 
Indians for exhibition purposes has been 
discountenanced by the interior depart- 
ment, and under an order just issued by 
Secretary Noble no more Indians will be 
allowed to leave their reservations; and 
all Indians now employed in exhibitions, 
either here or abroad, will have to be re 
turned. The order is the result of a move- 
ment instituted about two months ago by 
Gen. O’Bierne, assistant superintendent 
of immigration, and Fr. Craft, a priest 
among the Indians, who is now visiting 
this city. 

When the first batch of returning In- 
dians called on Gen. O’Bierne at the barge 
office two months ago, they presented an 
emaciated appearance. There were four 
of theparty and all were suffering from 
consumption. One of these was taken to 
Bellevue hospital, where he died. The 
others told sad stories about their treat- 
ment while abroad in Buffalo Bill’s show. 
They were penniless and their shoes and 
mocassins were badly worn. They were 
assisted to their reservation in South Da- 

Other Indians arrived later and told 
similar stories and then the attention of 
the Indian department was called to the 
matter. An investigation then followed, 
with the results already vold. The new 
order will affect the three shows now 
travelling abroad. Buffalo bill has about 
eighty Indians, Dr. Carver about fifty. and 
a third show about twenty-five.

An Appeal to Americans for Funds to 
Kelieve the Horrors of Famine, Which 
is Sure to Come Soon. 

New York, Oct. 1.—The Sun this morn- 
mg publishes an appeal tothe people of 
Amerize from the American committee 
for the relief of famine in Ireland. The 
most trustworthy information frem pub- 
lic and private sources in all parts of Ire- 
land is to the effect that the complete 
failure of the potato crop makes another 
great famine in that most unfortunate of 
lands practically inevitable. The’ point 
of actual suffering from hunger has not 
been reached, but the days of starvation, 
unless help comes, are not far off. 

In the last great famine, in 1873-79, the 
Irish leaders, Parvell, Davitt and the 
others who voiced the country’s appeal for 
food, pledged themselves never again to 
appear as supplicants before the world on 
behalf of starving Ireland. So no appeal 
has been sent out, and probably none 
would come from that source until the 
situation became desparate and it became 
no less than criminal any longer to with- 
hold it. A movement is on foot among 
well known men, not connected with any 
Irish societies or political bodies, to bring 
to the attention of America the appalling 
calamity which now threatens Ireland be- 
fore actual deatii from hunger has claimed 
any victims. 

It has been decided to organize under 
the name of the American Committee for 
the Relief of Famine in Ireland. It is pro- 
posed to make its work cover both North 
and South America. The personnel of the 
American committee contains the follow- 
ing names: Chairman, Gen. Jumes Grant 
Wilson; honorary chairmen, Hon. Ruther- 
ford B. Hayes, Hon. Grover Cleveland; 
vice chairmen, James Redpath, George 
Ehret, Col. Elliot F. Shepard, James Phil- 
lips, Jr.; treasurer, The New York Sun; 
secretary, Arthur Dudley Vinton. Chaun- 
cey M. Depew has accepted the chairman- 
ship of the sub-committee on transporta- 

The following firms and corporations 
have been, or will be, asked to receive con- 
tributions of money: Augustus Belmont 
& Co., the Emigrant Industrial Savings 
institution, the German-American bank, 
Central Trust Company of New York, The 
Mail and Express. 

The Sun and the Press in New York, 
The Public Ledger in Philadelphia, and 
The Globein Boston, have consented to 
aid the committee by receiving contribu- 
tions, publishing the appeals of the 
American committee, and also publishing 
the names of all contributors. 


Was Due to Defective Insulation—A 
Dangerous Custom Countenanced. 

NEw York, Oct. 1.—In the case of Line- 
man August Kopp, who was killed by an 
electric light wire on the night of Sept. 15, 
the coroner’s jury brought in a verdict to 
the effect that the accident would not have 
occwrred if the deceased had exercised 
proper care, but that the cause of death 
was the defective insulation, which is 
common atare lamps and which is coun- 
tenanced by the board of electrical control. 
The jury express the opinion that the 
maintenance of high tension electric 
lamps under such conditions should not 
be permitted. 

A Fortunate Escape. 

Sr. Jonny, N. B., Oct. 1—The fast ex- 
press on the Intercolonial railway left 
Moncton twenty-eight minutes late, and 
in order to make up lost time the speed 
was increased to forty miles an hour, 
Near Anagance a pile of sleepers was seen 
lying across the track, but before the 
speed could be slackened the train struck 
the obstruction. The locomotive was 
thrown from the rail and completely 
wrecked, but the engineer and fireman 
were unhurt. Theve was a large number 
of passengers on the train, but all escaped 

For Congress. 

Boston, Oct. 1.—Three of the Massachu- 
setts members of congress were renom- 
inated yesterday—Hon. Elijah A. Morse 
of Canton and Hon. William Cogswell of 
Salem by the Republicans, and Hon. John 
F. Andrew by the Democrats. In each 
case there was no opposing candidate in

pose the two Republican congressmen at 
the polls have not been named yet; but 
the Republicans of Mr. Andrew’s district

Happy Day for Exiles. 

BERLIN, Oct. 1.—There are great rejoic- 
ings in Germany over the expiration of 
the anti-Socialist law. Thirty exiles ar 
rived here last evening and were enthusi- 
astically welcomed. Meetings were held 
in seven different halls, all of which were 
crammed with people. Many streets were 
brilliantly illuminated lust evening. Sey-

Hanging Was Too Good tor Them. 

HAVANA, Oct. 1.—Two brothers, Jose 
and Carmelo Diaz, were executed in this 
city for a particularly atrocious crime. 
They had attacked a Turkish woman near 
Pinar del Rio and subjected her to the 
greatest indignities. The husband of the 
woman sought to avenge the dishonor of 
his wife, but was killed by the brothers, 
who also murdered the woman, and then 
mutilated the bodies of their victims ina 
most horrible manner.

reduction of 796 from the corresponding 
nine months of 1889. The liabilities show 
a reduction of $9,213,568 and assets a re- 
duction of $6,302,282. 

Robbery and Murder. 

PURCELL, L. T., Oct. 1.—Three burglars 
armed with rifles, entered the store of J. 
H. Carey & Co. last night. One of the 
men held Carey and two clerks at bay, 
while the others selected a lot of the most 
valua‘se goods. When the robbers had 
completed their work and were about to 
escape, Carey ran to the office for shelter, 
when he was fired upon and killed. The 
robbers escaped.

Sweeping Provisions of the Anti-Lot- 
tery Law-—Dow’s Appointment Will 

Stir Up a Row. 

WaAsHINGT@s,Oct. 1.—The senate agreed 
to the conference report upon the tariff 
bill at 6:30 last night by a vote of 33 yeas 
to 27 nays. This was a nearer escape from 
If three more Re- 
publicans had voted against the Dill, and 
all of the Democrats bad been present to 
vote against it, the bill would have been 
defeated. If two more Republicans had 
voted against the conference report and 
the Democrats had been present and 
voted, it would have been for the Vice 
President of the United States to have 
determined, by casting his vote, whether

the bill should pass or be defeated. 

As it is the bill is saved; but there were 
three Republicans who considered that 
they were bound, for different reasons, to 
vote against the report. They were Pad- 
dock of Nebraska, Pettigrew of South 
Dakota and Plumb of Kansas. It is to be 
said for the latter that he withheld his 
vote until after the long roll had been 
called. and did not vote until he could 
have seen, if hechose to take notice, that 
his negative vote would not defeat the 
Noone may say what his purpose 
was in that respect, but the chronologic of 
the voting list shows that Mr. Plumb 
waited before casting his vote until he 
could have beencertain, if he had wished 
to assure himself of the fact, that bya 


negative vote,he would not be beld respon 
sible for the defeat of the bill 

The concluding debate on the tariff was 
the most interesting of the long series, 
Mr. Carlisle made an able speech from his 
point of view. It remained for Mr. Ald- 

rich to close the debate. 
At the close of Mr. Aldrich’s remarks

Mr. Blaine Condones Minister Mixner’s 
Action, the President Does Not. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1.—Since his return 
Secretary Blaine has been so much cecu- 
pied with other important affairs of state 
that he has not had time to consider the 
Barrundia affair or to confer with the 
president concerning the conduct of Min- 
ister Mizner. The secretary is disposed to 
indorse the precipitate action of Mizner 
on account of his success in peacefully set- 
ling the controversies between Guatemala 
and Salvador. The president, however, 
who has carefully examined all the docu- 
ments relating tu the matter, is disposed 
to the belief that Mizner committed a 
fatal mistake in writing the letter direct- 
ing the surrender of Barrundia, especially 
as the minister had already negotiated a 
treaty between thess two governments, 
under the terms of which immunity was 
granted for all political offenses. The 
members of the foreign relations commit- 
tee of the senate are of the opinon, under 
the circumstances, that the president 
should recall the minister from his pos 
and thus condemn his action. Similar 

views are held by the house foreign affairs 


Dow's Appointment Will Make 
Things Lively in Maine Politics, 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1.—The appointment 
of Dow as collectorof Portland,in Speaker 
Reed’s district, over his recommendation 
of Milliken, has caused much comment in 
political circles here. The fact of the 
speaker’s overwhelming indorsement at 
the polls and the president’s letter of con- 
gratulation, is commented upon as in 
marked contrast with the influences 
which led to this appointment. The 
speaker is hot disposed to talk on the sub- 
ject, but it is very evident that he is much 
surprised at the president’s action under 
the circumstances. The speaker’s friends, 
however, are highly incensed and will 
make things lively in Maine Politics for 
the next two yeurs. It is understood that 
had Secretary Blaine not interfered in the 
Matter, the president would have com- 
plied with the speaker's wish and nomi- 
nated Milliken. The Speaker remarked to 

a friend that he could stand it i

Nature's Stimulants. | 
Emerson, remembering the habits of | 

conviviality to which some undergradu- 
ates succumb, once said: 

“Did you ever think about the logic of | 
Stimulus? Nature suppliesherown. It} 
is astonishing what she will doif you! 
will give her a chance. In how short a | 
time will she revive the overtired brain! | 
A breath under the apple tree, a siesta | 
on the grass, 8 whiff of wind, an inter- | 
val of retirement, and the balance and | 
serenity are restored. A clean creature | 
needs so little and responds so readily. | 

There is something as miraculous as the | 
gospels in it. | 
“Later in life society becomes a stim- |

the United States to these countries, 

| $658,000,000; Imports from these coun-

From this he argues a balance of $129,-

“The tariff so imcreases the cost of

He Is Renominated by the Republicans of 
the Second District. 

The Second District Republican Con- 
vention was held at Brockton Tuesday, 
and was attended by 100 delegates 
out of a total of 118. Dr, Channing 
Swan called the convention to order. A 
temporary organization was effected by the 
choice of George A. Washburn of Taun- 
ton as chairman and Joseph G. Cushing as 
secretary. After the organization had 
been made permanent the chairman eulo- 
gized Congressman Morse, and upon ro- 
tion of Hon. W. L. Reed of Brockton he 
was unanimously renominated by acclama- 
tion. The nominee was not able to get 
away from Washington, but was notified 
by telegram of his nomination, and he 
sent back the following: 

WasainerTon, D. C., Sept. 30, 1890. 

George A. Washburn, Brockton, Mass. : 
Telegram received announcing my unani- 
mous renomination, and I desire, through 
you, to extend my heartfelt thanks to the 
delegates and the Republicans of the 2d 
district they represent. 

Exisau A. MORSE, 

Col. Whipple of Brockton thought there 
should be a new basis of representation as 
Brockton, Taunton and Quincy and some 
towns did not have a fair representation. 
This was opposed by Thomas Blanchard 
of Stoughton and Col. Lovell of Wey- 
mouth, and lost. 

A banquet at Hotel Belinont followed 
the convention.

Cramped Quarters. 

Postmaster Adams has his eyes about for 
new, larger and more convenient quarters 
for the Quincy postoffice. He has the re- 
fusal of the periodical store of E. B. 
Souther in the Adams building which is 
soon to be vacated. This is not just such 
a place as is desired, and there is another 
drawback that the government will not be 
willing to allow for the increased rental. 
Certain it is however that better quarters 
must soon be secured, especially if the 
West Quincy business is to be accommo- 

Hospital Patients. 

But four of the injured in the Quincy 
disaster remain at the City hospital, and 
all are doing finely. 

Mrs. M. A. Hail of Fort Wayne, Ind., 
and Mrs. T. H. Addison of Chelsea, whose 
injuries were broken legs, are as well as 
could be expected. 

Mrs. E. C. Bailey, who was severely 
burned about the head and arms, will be 
able in a few days to be taken home. 

Mr. Joseph Brown of Lawrence, burned 
about the legs, is convalescent. 

There are now at the hospital in all 
twenty-two patients, mostly typhoid fever 

Veteran Fireman’s Association. 
To the Editors of the Ledger. 

There is in Quincy a good chance for an 
organization of Veteran Firemen, and in 
other places much smaller than this, they 
have flourishing societies and have a field 
day, now and again, to bring back to them 
the old days of hand-engines, when they 
would lose days at a time to make the old 
tubs (put every inch in her) right out on 
the paper. The hand-tub days are gone, 
no doubt, but there is one left yet which 
could be easily repaired, (and who knows 
but our City Fathers would present it to 
some good organization of this kind ?) 
It is worth trying, and will not cost much, 
and the fun the old Vets. could get out of 
one day a year, would more than repay any 
expense incurred. Come, some of you 
old timers, who wore the red-shirt, give 
this a start, and before another summer 
comes on us, let us see a good large body 
of veterans, ready as of old, to take a 
whack out of any of the present organiz- 
ations, and come marching into town with 
a good prize, headed by a broom brigade 
and brass band. 

Now that all this has been said about 
the old-timers let us think awhile about 
our present firemen. Quincy, it is con- 
ceded, has as good a call department as 
cap be found in the State. This is a broad 
statement, but can be upheld, and the only 
thing wonderful about it is, how the effi- 
ciency of the men is so good and the pay 
so poor. Quincy is not a place where low 
wages are paid for any kind of work, and 
should not be the place where firemen, (or 
at least those who answer all alarms) 
should be paid so little in comparison to 
the work performed. $75.00 per year is 
not enough for the two main companies, 
and in fact this is the figure which should 
be against the names of members of out- 
lying districts. This is $5.25 a month pcr 
map, and could easily be raised up to 
$10.00 a month, or $120.00 a year. 

Perhaps some will say that this is too 
much to pay for service in Quincy, butis it ? 
It is only what some men even in Boston 
get for one month, and they don’t do as much 
service in the year either. Look at $1640a 
year, and two weeks’ vacation, and look 
again at $120.00 a year, and liable to be 
called out after a hard day’s work on 
granite, to a much harder night’s work try- 
ing to save some of your homes from the 
fiend—fire. Ask yourself would you care 
to do it, or would you think it too much 
pay at the end of the year to draw $120 
from the city? 

Our city fathers could, with clear con- 
sciences, raise the pay of the ‘Quincy fire- 
men, to a level with their brethren, who 
have no such places to go into as have 
they, for it must be known that in other 
small cities and large towns, where the 
committee on Fire Department of our first 
Council went to look for information, that 
they are mostly built compact, or on 
smooth and level country, with none of 
the quarry-holes and threatening places 
your Quincy firemen have to contend with. 
They are always ready to increase the pay 
of city officers, and now it is about time to 
think of giving these men what they are 
worth, and not take the doings of other 
places for a standard. Quincy is looked 
to, more than any other one place, asa 
model city, and don’t then, let it be said 
that we have the poorest paid fire depart- 
ment, in respect to the work done. The 
service of Hose Co., No. 1, now exceeds 
the whole time of last year, and have three

And the Officer, Mistaking Him for a 
Burglar, Kills Him—Two Versions of 
the Unfortunate Affair. 

Boston, Oct. 1.—John, the 11-year qj, 
son of Horatio A. Davenport of 127 \Wa-. 
ren street, Roxbury, was shot and in- 
stantly killed last night by Patrolmay 
Kearney of Division 9. The affair ocey Ted 
in the yard of Mrs. Eliza J. Laws, 6 Wip- 
throp street. Although there is some dis. 
crepancy between the statements of 
officer and a companion of the deceased 
there are few people who are disposed t4 
charge the former with anything worse 
than a reckless use of his revolver. 

At 9:45 o’clock Patrolman Kearney hear) 
sounds in the yard of Mrs. Laws and ap. 
proaching the fence discovered that 

or more perso 1s were in the bushes, He 
heard faint whispers, but could not maka 
out anything farther. The position of 
persons indicated to him that an attempt 
was being or had been made to enter the 
house. He said he entered the yard 
toward the place where he supposed they 
were in concealment; that he ordered 
them to come forward, or, “come out of 
that,” that they made a break (ran) for 
the front fence; that he ordered them 
to stop, which they did not do, ang 
he fired a shot, intended for warning, s 
posing his aim to be high enough 
the ball safely over them; tl 
them fell; that he ran, and, fin 
supposed robber to be only a bo 
him up and, greatly to his dis 
grief, saw that he was bleeding from 
wound which must have been inflicted by 
himself; that he could not un ‘ 
how he came to hit him, aiming as high; 
he intended to. 

Two citizens, hearing the shot, ran t 

the yard and one of them was sent for Dr 
Miles, who was found at his office near by, 
A light was procured and the doctor ex. 
amined the poor little victim as he lay 

upon the lawn. He wasdead when the 
doctor reached him. The ball froma 2 
caliber revolver had penetrated the richt 
breast exactly at the nipple. A probe was 
inserted several inches without coming 
in contact with the lead. 

The companion of the deceased was 
Lewis F. Green of No. 7 Winthrop street, 
aged 15 years. His home being opposite 
that of Mrs. Laws, on the same 
doubtless his familiarity with these n- 
ises made it appear to him a very trifling 
misdemeanor to enter and take a few 
grapes. He admits that he and his young 
companion were in there for a few ; 
Astothe circumstances of the 
his story is considerably at var 
that of the officer. Young Green says they 
(he and Davenport) were standing on the 
ground, side by side, eating grapes, or try- 
ing to find some, as they were very scarce; 
that all at once a shot startled him; that 
Johnny took two or three steps and fell to 
the ground when the officer came rushing 
up and gave the prostrate form two kicks. 

To Reconcile These Statements 
adjustments have to be made in several 
particularf. The officer says the boys (as 
they passe!) were running toward th 
fence when he fired. The impression i 
given that they were running away fror 
him, but this could not have been, 
ball entered Davenport’s breast 
parently went straightin. Of ec 
boy may have been off to one s 
officer and faced him at the c 
ment, but he would have been o 
stop, or nearly so, to bring himse it 
position that would account for the direc- 
tion and place of the wound. 

If the statement of Green is accepted, 
viz., that the Davenport boy was stan 
among the grape vines, facing the street, 
when the shot was fired, the place and di- 
rection of the weun:] woul! b 
for, but in that ease ove is obliged t 
clude that the shot was a deliberat 
to kill or wound without the s! 
fort to warn the one aimed at or ascer- 
tain whether he had a right ther 
Thisisa very difficult theory t 
even by the most prejudiced. But 
statement is pruned a little they may 

Suppose the grapes were not plenty a 
the lower part of the vines and the boys 
had climbed upa few steps on the strir 
of boards running along the posts; t! 
the officer’s appearance had frightened 
them and.they rustled the leaves ia tl 
efforts to Ucseend quickly; that this 
was mistaken for the motion descri! 
the officer as running through the

Patrolman Kearney, who is 
years oid, and got his appointmen 
force in January, 1889, is a thoro 
grief-stricken man. He had nota wor 
say for himself beyond a plain statement 
of the facts as they seemingly appeare It )

and probably blames himself as serious!

Miraculous Escape from 


House of Mr. Perez Joyce 
Badly Damaged. 


Men’s and Boys’ Black Cheviot Suits 

In Frocks and Sacks, 

About two o’clock this afternoon resi- 
dents near the Quincy Electric Light and 
Power Station were startled by a loud re- 
port, and many looked out in time to see a 
shower of stones, wood, dirt, etc., falling 
in the vicinity. 

One of the stones weighing from 300 to 
400 pounds landed on the ridge pole uf the 
L of Perez Joyce’s house, crashed down 
through the attic and room below, and is 
now wedged in the second floor. 

Another stone struck a house in the rear 
of the works but caused but little damage, 

One stone travelled 300 to 400 feet and 
landed in the yard of E, M. Reagan. 

Other stones weighing from a few pounds 
up to 200 to 300 are scattered all about in 
the yard of the station and at Perez Joyce's. 

The stone boat was thrown over Mr. 
Joyce house although loaded down with 
stone and dirt. 


digging a well. At the depth of twenty- 
eighth feet he encountered a ledge. Holes 
were driven into it to the depth of twelve 
feet, and three of these were charged with 
twenty-five pounds of dynamite. 

Previous to firing the charge the neigh- 
bors were notified. Mr. Joyce and his 
family left their house and were out in 
Quincy avenue. This precaution saved 
accident, although it was miraculous. 

A book case in Mr. Joyce’ house was 
toppled over and other damage done in the 
house. Had Mr, Joyce been at work at 
his cobblers bench, he certainly would have 
been killed. 

Mr. Cashman isan unusually careful man 
but the ledge appears not to have been a 
solid rock, but composed of many small 
pieces, consequently the charge was much 
too heavy. 

Supt. Voorhees was an eye witness.

Steps Taken Towards the Formation of a 
School in this City. 

At a meeting held in the chapel of the 

Unitarian church, Wednesday evening, an 

EX i RA @ | address was delivered by Miss Albee of 

Boston on the subject of Kindergarten 
Teaching. The address was well received 
by the audience, manifestations of deep 
interest being most perceptible. 

The speaker was ably supported by Miss 
Symonds, teacher of the Normal Kinder- 
garten of Boston, who spoke at some 
length of the very great advantages to the 
young from this training, and with the aid 
of Misses Albee and Ryan aptly illustrated 
the work done. 

Mr. Edward Southworth of our city, 
upon the request of the chairman, gave an 
account of the good work accomplished in 
the kindergarten in the district of Dor- 
chester,in which his own school work is car 
riedon. His remarks were most felicitious, 
and the statement that scholars from the 
kindergartens excelled as a rule, all others, 
was regarded as very significant as to the 
worth of the work. 

Mrs. Frederick A. Claflin gave expression 
to her hearty approval of the kindergarten 
training, and emphasized the importance 
of the ‘‘all round’ education there ob- 

Mr. James H. Slade spoke very pleas- 
antly upon the subject, and by a reference 
to his experience when upon the school 
board brought out, in his peculiarly lucid 
manner, the superior qui¢kness of percep- 
tion of the young to the adults. 

Upon the suggestion of Dr. Faxon, a 
committee was appointed to take the nec- 
essary steps to the formation of a school in 
this city. 

There was a very good attendance, in 
numbers, of our most intelligent and pro- 
gressive people, and at the conclusion of 
the evening’s exercises there were many 
expressions of pleasure and cordial thanks 
for and toward those who had volunteered 
in contributing their time and service. Mr. 
Rupert F. Claflin presided. 

Brockton Fair. 

Blue skies, sunshine and delicious air 
tempered with autumn ozone, combined to 
make yesterday, the opening day of the 
Brockton fair, as pretty a day as heart 
could wish for. Today is a repetition, and 
it would not be surprising if there were 
300 from Quincy on the grounds today. 
They went by train, by private carriages 
and in barges. A merry party was con- 
veyed in Crane’s six-horse tally-ho; they 
were: William N. Eaton, A. G. Durgin, 
J. F. Merrill, W. W. Adams, C. H. Very, 
Henry A. Johnson, Dexter Wadsworth, 
E. H. Sprague, Capt. Doane, E. W. 
Sheppard, Henry Eaton, Eben H. Googin, 
William H. Doble, A. F. Bussell and G. 
S. Paterson. 

The Taxpayers. 

Some of our readers are so much inter- 
ested in the tax list, now being published 
in the Dairy LEDGER, that they wish to 
preserve a file of the paper, which will 
always be valuable for future reference. 
Those who wish only to save the tax list 
could do so in a neat and handy shape by 
procuring a scrap book and pasting the 
list found in the LEDGER daily into the 
same. The book when completed would 
be worth $5.00 to many of our citizens. 

A Gracious Act. 

Our townsman, Mr. E. E. Williamson 
could have easily received the presidency 
of the congressional convention held at 
Brockton on the 30th ult. but he gave his 
prompt request that it might go to Taun- 
ton, for political reasons, in order to 
strengthen his friend, Congressman Morse, 
in that section of the district. Capt. 
Washburn was a soldier, and Mr. William- 
son’s conduct gained him many friends. 
Mr. Williamson was chairman of the most 
important commlttee of the convention— 
that on selecting a district committee, and 
was instrumental in keeping Mr. The- 
ophilus King, of Quincy, on the commit- 
tee at large. He was also one of the 
committee of three on credentials. 

Brockton and Taunton Taxes. 

The largest tax paid in Brockton is 
$4,045.58 and the second $3,114.96. There 
are 419 persons and firms which pay a 
tax of over $100, 74 of over $500, and 26 
of over $1,000. The tax rate is $15.20. 

In Taunton there are 671 estates which 
pay $100 or more, 62 which pay $500 or 
more, 32 which pay $1,000 or more, and 8 
which pay over $3,000. 

Don’t Train With Them. 

The Prohibitionists have not made any 
nomination for District Attorney in this 
district as no lawyer could be found who 
was identified with the party. 

Wanted in Brockton. 

At a recent church fair in Quincy, a 
prize was offered to ‘‘the woman who 
makes the best coffee.” The winner 
could fill a long-felt want by offering her 
services to some of Brockton’s hotels.— 

Malden Hospital Fund. 

Pledges for $30,250 of the $35,000 de-

A Sad Affair. 

As was noticed by yesterday’s 
LEDGER, a lad while stealing grapes in 
Roxbury was shot by an officer and 
almost instantly killed. We pity the 
parents, in their sudden and severe 
loss, and blame the officer for so hasty 
an act. 

Still it is a deplorable state of affairs 
that our citizens cannot raise a little 
fruit without being constantly annoyed 
or molested. One night recently three 
full grown boys were noticed in Judge 
Pratt’s orchard on Spear street, which 
we are sorry to learn has been visited 
a number of times this season. After 
the thieves had helped themselves 
freely they wended their way toward 
Brackett street. 

If boys or men will persist in rob- 
bing gardens, they must not complain 
if they are occasionally peppered with 
shot or ball; but the most unsatisfac- 
tory part of it is, usually, that those 
who most deserve to be shot, are the 
ones who are never hit. 

Springfield has a worthy citizen in 
Mr. George M. Stearns, whose example 
might well be imitated in other cities. 
He is the projector of a course of en- 
tertainments to be given this fall and 
winter in the city hall and the admis- 
sion to all of which is going to be 
placed at cost. If, in spite of calcula- 
tions to the contrary, money is made 
out of the course, it will be used only 
to give supplementary entertainments, 
which holders of tickets will be en- 
titled to attend free. It is intended to 
offer only strictly first-class entertain- 
ments in every respect and to put the 
admission at $1.25 for the whole course 
of ten, including reserved seats. What 
more philanthropic scheme could be 
devised than this; to furnish elevating 
entertainment of the highest order to 
the people at bare cost; philanthropic 
without being open to objection as 
charitable, since all who go will pay 
the actual cost of the course. We feel 
no doubt but the public will eagerly 
embrace the opportunity to get so 
much for so little, however, a8 soon as 
it is offered. 

That Brookline tax dodger who 
moved over to Dedham to escape an 
honest assessment of a trust estate 
made a big mistake. The Brookline 
Assessors had him down for $300,000 
and he wanted an abatement to $100,- 
000. On being refused he moved to 
Dedham and then the Brookline people 
hunted upthe record and found that 
the estate was probated for $700,000, 
and he will have to pay his full share 
of the taxes. As the Lynn Item says, 
the extent to which tax dodging is 
carried is not realized by the people 
generally. References to it are regard- 
ed in the light of jokes, but could all 
the property bear its just proportion of 
the public burden the taxes drawn from 
the men who have nothing but their 
little homes would be greatly reduced. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers 
to the Patriot who also feel desirous of 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have 
been readers of the Parnior for a quarter, 
or perhaps haif, a century; and the Pat- 
RIoT is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers, 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Patriot and the Darty LEDGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to haye them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as it is very expensive to collect 
newpaper bills. 

No Quorum Snag Encountered in the 
House--After the Usual Formalities 
Vice President Morton Declares Con- 
gress Aujourned — Speaker Reed Dis- 
comfited Over Col. Dow’s Appointment. 
Federal Election Bill’s Future—Execu- 

tive Nominations Confirmed. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.—In the senate the 
reading of Wrdnesday’s journal having 
been dispensed with, Mr. Sherman offered a 
resolution for the appointment of a com- 
mittee of two senators to join a like com- 
mittee on the part of the house, to wait 
upon the President of the United States 
and inform him that unless he shall have 
any further communication to make, the 
two houses are now ready to adjourn. 
The resolution was agreed to, and Messrs. 
Sherman and Harris were appointed the 
committee oz the part of the senate. 

Mr. Manderson, from the committee on 
printing, reported back the house bill to 
revise the wages of certain employes in the 
government printing office, with an 
amendment providing that the pay of all 
employes, engaged exclusively on night 
work between 3 p.m. and $8 a. m., shall 
be 20 per cent. in addition tothe amount 
paid for day labor. Calendar. 

Mr. Edmunds moved to proceed to ex- 
ecutive business. 

Mr. Blair appesled to the senator from 
Vermont to withdraw that motion in 
order that the labor bill may be taken up. 

Mr. Edmunds—I should be most glad to 
join with my friend from New Hampshire 
in passing a suitable bill, but it is per- 
fectly impossible that such a bill can be 
come a law atthistime. It would have 
to go back to the house of representatives, 
which is probably somewhat short in the 
number of its members. 

The motion was agreed to, and the sen- 
ate proceeded to the consideration of ex- 
ecutive business. 

Legislative business was resumed at 
1:20 p. m. 

Three Veto Messages. 

The vice president laid before the senate 
three veto messages from the president, 
two of them on bills referring to the court 
of claims, the claims of Charles P. Chon- 
teau and of the Portland company of 
Portland, Me., and the third one the bill 
to prohibit book-making and pool-selling 
in the District of Columbia for the pur 
pose of gambling. 

The president’s objection to the latter 
bill is that it does not prevent book-mak- 
ing and pool-elling, but on the contrary 
permits it in the case of the Washington 
Jockey clubandof other clubs owning 
race tracks. If that form of gambling was 
to be prohibited (as the president thinks 
it should be) the prohibition should ap 
ply to all persons and all places. The 
three messages were laid on the table, 
The senate then took a recess for half an 
hour, till 2:15. 

A Blunder in the Tariff Bill. 

After the close of the recess a message 
was received from the house asking con- 
currence in a resolution to make another 
correction in the tariff bill on paragraph 
818. A consultation on the subject at once 
took place between Messrs. Allison, Ald- 
rich, Edmunds and Gorman, and at its 
conclusion the concurrent resolution was 
laid before the senate. 

Mr. Edmunds said that he was unwill- 
ing to legislate on the tariff in that way. 
It is imp ssivle, said he, to do business in 
this way, but in order that the house may 
know that the senate is unwilling to do it, 
he moved that the secretary be directed to 
inform the house respectfully that the 
senate is unable to consider this concur- 
rent resolution. 

Mr. Aldrich—The house may be notified 

Mr. Edmunds—Then I withdraw my 

For the next fifteen minutes the vice 
president was busiedin putting his name 
to bills, the titles of which were recited by 
the clerk. 

A resolution to continue in employment 
the sessional employes of the senate for 
another month, and to pay them out of 
the contingent fund, was reported and 

Tariff Bill Signed. 

At 2:55 the tariff, enrolled, was received 
from the house with the speaker’s signa- 
ture, and it was immediately signed by 
the vice president and sent to the Presi- 
dent of the United States for his signa- 
ture. Mr. Aldrich thereupon reported 
back the adjourmment resolution,amended 
so as to fix the time at 5 p. m. and it was 
agreed to. 

At five minutes before the time proposed 
by the senate for final adjournment, Mr. 
McPherson, the clerk of the house, deliv- 
ered a message from thet body proposing a 
conference on a private pension bill. The 
clerk smiled as he acquitted himself of his 
missiun, and senators seemed to think it 
not a bad joke. Mr. Harris offered a reso- 
lution (Mr. Dolph being in the chair) 
tendering the thanks of the senate to Vice 
President Morton for the dignified, im- 
partial and courteous manner in which he 
had presided over the debiberations of the 
senate. Adopted unanimously. A resolu- 
tion similarin its terms was offered by 
Mr. Ransomin compliment to Senator 
Ingalls as president pro tem.; and it was 
also unanimously adopted. 

At 5:10 a message was received from the 
house that the adjournment resolution 
had been amended by substituting 6 
@’clock for 5, and the amendment was con- 
curred in. 

Mr. Sherman (in company with Mr, 
Harris) reported that the committee of 
the two houses had waited on the presi- 
dent and had informed him that the two 
houses had concluded their business, and 
were prepared to adjourn if he had no 
further communication to them, and that 
the president had answered that he had no 
further communication to make. 

The senate then took a recess till 10 min- 
utes before 6. At the expiration of the 
recess, a message was received from the 

house announcing its concurrence with 
tbe resolution as to negotiations with 
Mexico to prevent Chinese entering the 
United States from that republic. 

When the bands on the clock dial 
pointed to 6 o’clock, Mr. Morton rose and 

Senators—Before making the apnounce - 
ment that will leave senators at liberty to 
return to their homes, I my most 


grateful appreciation of the resolution of 
approval and confidence with which you 
have honored me. Assuming, as I did,the 
responsibilities of the chair without pre- 
vious experience asa presiding ©: a 

is not necessary for me to say that if I 
ag et ngs poate cate and impor- 
tant duties of the position in a satisfac 
manner, it is due to the indulgent consid- 
eration and cordial co-operation which [ 
oe received from every senator on this 


I indulge in the earnest hope that I ma: 
be permitted, upon the reassembling o 
congress,to see every member of this body 
in his seat,in renewed health and s . 
after a season of rest from the arduous la- 
bors of this, the longest continued session, 
with one exception, in the history of the 
government. I feel that I may with 
warrant congratulate the senate and the 
country upon the large number of impor- 
tant measures which have received the 
careful consideration of this body and be- 
come laws. lt only remains for me to de- 
clare, as I now do, that the senate stands 
adjourned without day. [Applause.j 

And thus the first session of the Fifty- 
first congress came to a close, a session 
during which the senate met for 224 days, 
against 197 daysin the Fiftieth congress, 
which terminated Oct. 20, 1888. Measured 
in hours, the disproportion was still 
greater than in days, eight hours a day 
having been theaverage time during much 
of the period when the tariff bill was 
under discussion. 


The house, during the early portion of 
the day, was in a condition of semi-panic. 
There have been some rumors for the last 
few days that it might yet happen that it 
would be necessary to change the date of 
Oct.6as the time when the tariff bill 
should go into effect. It cannot be denied 
that the Republicans had apprehensions 
that the Democrats intended to fulfil 
their threats, and to insist upon the pres- 
ence of a Republican quorum at the time 
of the enrollment of the tariff bill, inas- 
much as the first movement after the 
chaplain’s prayer was the raising of this 
very point by Breckenridge of Kentucky. 
The Republicans began to fear that their 
apprehensions were well founded. 

McKinley, Cannon and other Republi- 
cans at once held a conference with 
Breckenridge and endeavored to ascertain 
whether he really intended to do what he 
seemed disposed to do, whether that was 
the Democratic policy, and whether the 
presence of a Republican quorum was to 
be insisted upon before the taritf bill 
should pass through its last stages. For 
an houran’ a quarter Breckenridge kept 
the house in a deadlock and the Republi- 
cans in suspense. During that time noth- 
ing was done. Breckenridge at last with- 
drew his point of no quorum. 

He had bardly taken his seat when Kil- 
gore of 'Texas arose and renewed the point. 
Nearly half an hour more was wasted on 
the point of order of Kilgore, when,he too, 
yielding to the pressure of conservative 
Democrats, withdrew the point that there 
was no quorum. 

‘The point was not made again, although 
until the tariff bill had actually been 
signed, submitted to the house, and in all 
its great bulk—four pounds in weight of 
parchment—had been placed in the hands 
of the clerk of the house, McPherson, to 

be delivered tothe senate, the Republicans | Al 

did not breathe easily. There seemed to 
be great delay—and the uneasy Republi- 
cans thought, unnecessary delay—in the 
presentation of the enrolled bill to the 
speaker for his signature. 

The physical work of enrollment itself 
is extremely laborious and exhaustive. 
Following an ancient usage the bills are 
all transcribed on large folio sheets of 
parchment paper, upon which no one who 
is not an expert can well write. They are 
to be prepared word for word and comma 
for comma, for it has happened that the 
misplacing of a comma inan enrolled copy 
of a bill has cost the government $1,000, 
for the refunding of duties adjuged b 
the final court to have been improperly 

At last—2:45—the bulky bill was placed 
upon the speaker’s desk. Hastily glancing 
at its title and lifting the 100 yreat sheets 
until the last one was reached, Speaker 
Reed attached his official signature at the 
bottom in a firm and heavy hand. 

During the subsequent act of submitting 
the bill te the house, when the clerk must 
read its title, Allen of Mississippi had the 
floor. He was making a speech when the 
speaker interrupted him to present the en- 
rolled bill. 

The clerk read its formal title. There 
was absolute silence in the house. The 
Republicans watched the Democratic side 
with anxiety. Not a word was spoken. 
The enrolling clerk quickly grasped the 
huge bundle, half rolled, which consti- 
tuted the official copy of the tariff law. 
Clerk McPherson of the house was in 
waiting, as he for hours had been, to take 
it tothe senate. The assistant sergeant- 
at-arms of the senate, Charles B. Reade of 
Maine, commissioned by the senate to as- 
certain the cause of the delay,was waiting 
at the outer door to escort the bill to the 
senate as a sort of guard of honor. 

Postmaster Wheat Resigns. 

Mr. Caswell of Wisconsin submitted a 
letter addressed tothe speaker by James 
L. Wheat, postmaster of the house, ten- 
dering his resignation, 

Subsequently Mr. Spooner of Rhode 
Island, from the committee on accounts, 
submitted the report of that committee 
upon the subject. The report states that 
the charges made by the Enloe resolution 
against the postmaster of the house have 
been substantially established, and though 
the relations between Dalton (the pre- 
vious postmaster) and Culbertson (the 
mail contractor) gives rise to grave sus- 
picion that some private arrangements ex- 
isted between them whereby Dalton. dur- 
ing the Forty-ninth and Fiftieth con- 
gresses, derived personal profits out of his 
contracts for carrying the mails, no abso- 
lute proof has been obtained. 

The report is accompanied by a resolu- 
tion declaring the office of postmaster of 
the house vacant and directing the as- 
sistant postmaster to perform the duties 
of postmaster until a postmaster shall 
have been elected and duly qualified. 

Mr. Caswell of Wisconsin asked unani- 
mous consent for the consideration of a 
resolution electing P. J. Flint of Wis- 
consin as postmaster of the house. 

Mr. Williams of Ohio objected, and Mr. 
Caswell withdrew his resolution. 

The End. 

Mr. McKinley of Ohio, chairman of the 
committee appointed to wait upon the 
president, announced that the president 
had no further communication to make, 
and the house, at 5:25, took a recess until 

During the recess nearly ali the mem- 
bers left the hall to make preparation for 

their departure from the city, and when 
the wake gavel reconvened the houg, 
that official looked down upon a vast ar- 
ray of empty seate, He merely stated 
that according to the concurrent resolu- 
tion he declared the first session of the 
Fifty-first congress adjourned without a 


{t is Asserted That Mr. Reed's Discom- 
fiture is Traced to Mr. Blaine. 

WAsHINGTON, Oct. 2.—The treatment of 
Speaker Reed by the president in the ap- 
pointment of Col. Dow to be collector of 
the port at Portland was the subject 
animated eae in ae RE = — 
gress yesterday. Nearly z 
nent Republicans; and especially those 
from New England, called upon the 
speaker and deprecated such a proceeding 
on the part of the president. The speaker, 
before the Maine election, had a very 
frank conversation with the 
concerning this matter. The president 
urged that the speaker and the senators 
should endeavor to arrange their differ- 
ences, and not compyl him to discrim- 
inate; but if no agreement could be 
reached to name a third man. 

It is understool that the president was 
inelined to gratify the wishes of the 
speaker on acconnt of the victory which 
he had achieved in his own district and iv 
the state, and in which the administration 
was also largely benfited. That the presi- 
dent felt kindly disposed, was evident 
from the fact that that he early congratu- 
lated the speaker by wire on account of his 

When Secretary Blaine arrived here and 
learned that the president was disposed to 
meet the choice of the speaker, he threw 
himself into the the breach and insisted 
that the indorsement of the senators 
should be adhered to. 

In alluding to the matter yesterday to @ 
calling friend, the president remarked, in 
justification of his action, that he had in 
all cases where there was a contest be- 
tween a cabinet officer and the member of 
the district, or even the senators of the 
state, invariably sustained the member of 
his cabinet, and that he felt constrained 
in this instance to follow the same course. 

In speaking of the matter, Mr, Reed 
said: ‘Pie whole story is that the presi- 
dent, after the handsome indorsement of 
my course by the people of Maine, by 
this deliberate act,dictated by my personal 
enemy, sends me back to my people with 
a brand of disapprobation.”

Senator Edmunds Is Positive It Will Be 
Passed by the Fifty-first Congress, 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2.—Senator Edmunds 
was asked by a Star reporter if the Re- 
publicans would pass the federal election 
bill next session. He replied: 

Yes, it should nave becu and could have 
been passed tuis session. More than that, 
it would have been nud there not been an 
agreement (to which I was not a party) 
between some of my Republican brethren 
and the Democratic senators. It may be 
that the rules of the senate will need to 
be amended before the bill can pass, but I 
am of opinion that we have rules enough. 

The parliamentary practice, lang ap- 
proved, provides that when there is an 
evident intention on the part ofa minority 
to wilfully obstruct legislation, it is per- 
fectly legitimate aud only right that the 
maj. rity assert 1t8 power and come toa 
conclusion. ‘har is my belief. There are 
those ui my ow purty wuo disagree with 
me, andit may be that a new rule will be 
brouxht forth to meet and defeat vaptious 
minority opposition. Lam willing that 
such a rule be adopted if it is absolutely 
nece-sury,. Kule or po rule, the federal 
electiou biil will become law before the ud- 
jourument of the Fitty-first congress, 

Public Debt statement. 

WASHINGTON, Oct 2.—The public debt 
statement, just issued, shows a decrease 
in the debt during the past month amount- 
ing to $4,592,907. The interest-bearing 
debt, exciusive of bonds issued to Pacific 
railroads, is $638,683,070, a reduction inthe 
bonded indebtedness during the month 
amounting to $42,289,950, while on the 
other hand the surplus in the treasury, 
which a month ago, including subsidiary 
coin and national bank redemption fund, 
was $107,307,677, is $59,791,850, a decrease 
during the month of $17,606,327. National 
bank depositaries hold $30,297,111 of gov 
ernment funds, or about $100,000 less than 
on Sept. 1. 

Government receipts from all sources 
during the past month wereusually heavy, 
aggregating $39,804,334, against $31,416,290 
in September, 1889.On the other hand expen- 
ditures for September past were $33,732,106, 
against $16,462,860 in September,1889. More 
than $14,000,000 of this comparative excess 
of expenditures during the past month 
over those of September last year is ac- 
counted for by the usually heavy bond re- 
demption in September, nearly $13,000,000 
having been paid out in interest and pre- 
Bim against $3,656,055 in September, 

Georgia Remains Democratic. 

ATLANTA, Oct. 2—The state election 
was unusually quiet. The Democratic 
ticket is Llected by the usual heavy ma- 
jority, there being practically no opposi- 
tion. Both constitutional amendments 
have probably been carried. The general 
assembly is three-fourths alliance,

ing John Davenpert. 

Bostow, Oct. %—In the Roxbury court 


dead boy’s companion, So Sywithebs 

Superintendent Small, and upon seeing 
his su cried without restraint. He 
claimed that the shooting was entirely ac- 
cidental, as he aimed the revolver in the 
air when he fired the shot. He also most 
emphatically denied that he kicked the 
boy, as he claims that the child fell into 
his arms. 

‘As would be supposed, the shooting af- 
fair was the chief topic among the police- 
men of this city. Hardly any of them, 
however, are inclined to censure the offi- 
cer, but instead seem to pity him. De- 
spite all that bas been said in favor of the 
patrolman on all sides, 1t is repeatedly 
asked if he did not. violate rule 29 of the 
police manual. A clause of thisrule says 
that a revolver shall be used with great 
caution, and only in self defense. 

Many theories have arisen through the 
discrepancy of the two stories concerning 
the affair, but the fact that the ball struck 
in the boy’s breast directly in front, shows 
that he could not have beenrunning away 
from the officer when the shot was fired, 
as Kearney claimed.

were shortly thereafter attackel by a 
band of negro robbers, who made them 
throw up their hands and had succeeded 
in robbing several before the alarm was 
given. Then the robbers fled to Dean’s 
Station, eleven miles north, whither the 
sheriff and several deputies pursued and 
found them in a house, The robbers 
levelled rifies and pistols and commanded 
the sheriff to surrender his hand satchel, 
in which were his pistols. The sheriff did 
so, but the deputies appeared and the 
negroes began running. The sheriff and 
three officers opened fire. Two of the 
negroes fell badly wounded, and a third 
was hit, but with the others, escaped. One 
of the zang has taken refuge in a house at 
some distance from the scene of the shoot- 
ing and is defying arrest. The sheriff, who 
had taken his wounded prisoners to jail, is 
now on his way to the house and more 
trouble is expected.

} Rippert’s sawmill on the Sanerbach. For 

five long weeks he lived as in 2 dream, 
parched with fever and racked with the 

Algiers with his father, the kaid of Mati- 

At last he opened his eyes and became 
Gimly conscious of being m a cool, clean 
room, with white curizins at the win- 

| dows, and outside green branches wav- 

ing, and hght clouds passing before the 

jsumn. Near his bed sat alittle sister of 
| charity, watchful and quiet, wearing in- 
| deed no silver cross, no rosary, no veil, 

but, instead, two long braids of-yellow 

| hair fallmg over a black velvet bodice. 
| From time to time some one would call 

“Katel, Katel and the pessant girl 

| would go on tiptoe out of the room, and 

then the invalid would hear a clear young 

voice which seemed to him as refreshing 

as the sound of the brock that ran mur- 
muring under the windows of the mill. 
Kadour was il] for a long time, but 
the Ripperts took such good care of him 
that his wounds healed, and they con- 
cealed him so cleverly that the Prussians 
Were not able to send him to die of cold 

he took a few steps round the room, with 
one sieeve hanging empty and a great 
gaping hole in the midst of the embroi- 
dery, and his arm still bandased and 
belpless. Then he went every day into 
the little garden, and Katel would bring 
out a little rng seated armchair for the 

| invalid, putting it down in the warmest 

corner by the wall. where the grapes 

| ripened the earliest, and Kadour, whe, 

being a kaid’s son, had studied im the 
Arabian college at Algiers, would thank 
ber im French, waich sounded a little 
barbarous, mingled as it was with bono 

| bezeif and maeach bono. 

Without suspecting it the young Tur

ety of the French maiden, who lived as 

fre as a bird, her face unveiled even in | 
| the open air, and her window unbarred, 
| astonished while it fascinated him [It | 
| was so very different from the walled 

up life of his countrywamen, with their 
white, lemon scented veils. 

Tlatel, om her’ part, thought the 
stranger 2 Little too dark skinned; but 
be had such a frank face and he hated 
the Prussians so! One thing displeased 
ber terribly, and that was that over 
there in Algeria a man might have sev- 
eval wives. She could not understand 

| that, and one day when Kadour, to tease 
| ber, said in his foreign jargon, “Kadour 

soon marry—have four wives—four”— 
the girl exclaimed angrily, “Four wives: 
Oh, the villain, the pagan"” 

The Turk burst out langhing as ciee- 
fully as a child; then, suddenly growing 
serious and silent, he fixed his great 
dark eyes upon her face. That was the

And the Officer, Mistaking Him for a 
‘Barglar, Kills Him—Two Versions of 
the Unfortunate Affair. 

Oct. 1. 

The act in question is chap. 440 of the 
Acts and Resolves of 1890. [ts provisions 
are that no officer receiving a salary or per 
day or hour compensation from the state, 
county, city or town, shall be paid any fee 
or extra compensation for services in any 
criminal case, nor for aid to another 
officer, nor as a witness in such criminal 
case, but actual and necessary expenses of 
such officers shall be paid in a criminal 
case in police, district or municipal courts 
by the city or town in which the offence is 
committed, and in the higher courts by the 

Fees and expenses of officers other than 
those above mentioned, if in the higher 
courts, shall be paid by the county, and in 
the lower courts by the city or town in 
which the offence occurred. 

In trial justice cases such fees and ex- 
penses, if not paid by defendants, are to be 
paid by the county where the trial is had. 

‘*Costs’’ by that name are not to be 
taxed against a defendants in a criminal 
case, but the court is to determine what 
have been the actual and reasonable ex- 
penses of the prosecution, including the 
services of officers and witness, and for the 
detention and support of the prisoner, and 
may include in the fine the whole or any 
part of these expense, provided that the 

Fine Is Not Thereby Increased 
beyond the maximum. fine now provided 
by law, but in cases where, under exisiting 
law, costs may be imposed in addition to 
the maximum fine, and the court is of 
opinion that such fine, without costs, is 
au inadequate penalty, he may impose the 
maximum fine, and order defendant to 
pay the whole or any part of the expenses 
of the case, 

When, under existing law, a defendant 
may be discharged by payment of costs, and 
when costs are imposed in addition to im- 
prisonment, the court is to determine the 
amount of expenses and order their pay- 

All fines in the superior court and all fines 
paid after commitment are to be paid to 
county treasurer, or, in Suffolk county, to 
the collector of the city of Boston, and all 
fines in district, police and municipal courts, 
when no other provision is made by law, 
shall be paid to the city or town where the 
offence is committed. 

Witness fees to all persons other than to 
officers, as forbidden by this chapter, are to 
be paid as now provided by law in the 
higher courts, and in the lower courts out 
of any funds paid into court and return- 
able to the county, except naturalization 
fees. When the officials of the lower 
courts do not have sufficient funds on hand 
to pay such witness fees, they may draw 
upon the county treasurer. 

An officer attending court as a witness 
ata place other than his place of residence 
is to beallowed pay by the day, instead of 
witness fees. 

One result of the new law will be to com® 
plicate the accounts of the court officials 
as an account must be kept with each 
town and city of costs incurred and fines 
received in cases occurring in each locality. 

The town treasurers may also find their 
new duties somewhat perplexing in 
receiving and allowing court fines and 
court expenses in every petty case arising 
in the town. . 

Boston, Oct. 1—John, the 11-year old 
son of Horatio A. Davenport of 127 War- 
ren street, Roxbury, was shot and in- 
stantly killed last night by Patrolman 
Kearney of Division 9. The affair occurred 
in the yard of Mrs, Eliza J. Laws, 6 Win- 
throp street. Although there is some dis- 
crepancy between the statements of the 
officer and a companion of the deceased, 
there are few people who are disposed to 
charge the former with anything worse 
than a reckless use of his revolver. 

At 9:45 o’clock Patrolman Kearney heard 
sounds in the yard of Mrs. Laws and ap- 
proaching the fence discovered that two 
or more persons were in the bushes. He 
heard faint -vhispers, but could not make 
out anything farther. The position of the 
persons indicated to him that an attempt 
was being or had been made toenter the 
house. He said he entered the yard 
toward the place where he supposed they 
were in concealment; that he ordered 
them to come forward, or, “come out of 
that:” that they made a break (ran) for 
the front fence; that he ordered them 
to stop, which they did not do, and 
he fired a shot, intended for warning, sup- 
posing his aim to be high enough to carry 
the ball safely over them; that one of 
them fell; that he ran, and, finding the 
supposed robber to be only a boy, picked 
him up and, greatly to his dismay and 
grief, saw that he was bleeding from a 
wound which must have been inflicted by 
himself; that he could not understand 
how he came to hit, him, aiming as highas 
he intended to. 

Two citizens, hearing the shot, ran to 
the yard and one of them was sent for Dr. 
Miles, who was found at his office near by. 
A light was procured and the doctor ex- 
amined the poor little victim as he lay 
upon ths lawn. He wasdead when the 

doetor reached him. The ball froma 33- 
caliber revolver had penetrated the right 
breast exactly at the nipple. A probe was 
inserted several inches without coming 
in contact with the lead. 

The companion of the deceased was 
Lewis F. Green of No, 7 Winthrop street, 
aged 15 years. His home being opposite 
that of Mrs. Laws, on the same street, 
doubtless his familiarity with these prem- 
ises made it appear to him avery trifling 
misdemeanor vo enter and take a few 
grapes. He admits that he and his young 
companion were in there for a few grapes. 
Astothe circumstances of the shooting 
his story is considerably at variance with 
that of the officer. Young Green says they 
(he and Davenport) were standing on the 
ground, side by side, eating grapes, or try- 
ing to find some, as they were very scarce; 
that all at oncea shot startled him; that 
Johnny took two or three steps and fell to 
the ground when the officer came rushing 
up and gave the prostrate form two kicks. 

To Reconcile These Statements 
adjustments have to be made in several 
particularf. The officer says the boys (as 
they passed) were running toward the 
fence when he fired. The impression is 
given that tiey were running away from 
him, but this could not have been, as the 
ball entered. Davenport’s breast and ap- 
parently went straight in. Of course the 
boy may have been off to one side of the 
officer and faced him at the critical mo- 
ment, but he would have been obliged to 
stop, or nearly so, to bring himself into a 
position that would account for the direc- 
tion and place of the wound. ‘ 

If the statement of Green is accepted, 
vis., that the Davenport boy was standing 
‘among the grape vines, facing the street, 
when the shot was fired, the place and di- 
rection of the wound would be accounted 
for, but in that case one is obliged to con- 
clude that the shot was a deliberate effort 
to kill or wound without the slightest ef- 
fort to warn the one aimed at or ascer- 
tain whether he had ua right there or not. 
This isa very difficult theory to accept, 
even by the most prejudiced. But if each 
statement is pruned a little they may be 

Suppose the grapes were not plenty at 
the lower part of the vines and the boys 
had climbed upa few steps on the strips 
of boards running along the posts; that 
the officer’s appearance had frightened 
them and they rustled the leaves in their 
efforts to descend quickly; that this noise 
was mistaken for the motion described by 
the officer as running through the bushes; 
at he vel “well up,” perhaps, but not 

gh enough to miss a boy upon a 
trellis. oe 

Patrolman Kearney, who is about 27 
years oid, and got his appointment on the 
force in January, 1889, is a thoroughly 
grief-stricken man. He had nota word to 
say for himself beyond a plain statement 
of the facts as they seemingly appeared to 
him. He realizes that he fired recklessly, 
and probably blames himself as seriously 
as any one can do. 

The facts in the case were telephoned to 
the superintendent of police, who soon ar- 
rived at the station and looked into the 
case for the purpose of taking such action 
as might be demanded on his part.. No 
formal action was taken. The facts will 
be presented to the commissioners, and, if 
deemed necessary, acted upon at once,

A Pot of Gold Found Buried in a West 
Dedham Farm. 

A gang of workmen engaged Tuesday 
in repairing an old well which had caved 
in on the estate of Col. Theodore Ellis at 
West Dedham, were surprised to find a pot 
of gold. ‘The pot had a tightly sealed tin 
cover, but when this was removed a quan- 
tity of ancient coin was discovered. 

An examination of some of the coins 
proved them to be Spanish money, 1652, 
1768, 1786, 1781, 1789, 1801; others United 
States of the issue of 1795, English pieces 
of 1749, George IL, 1751, 1768 and a coin 
of Carlos VII, 1777. 

There were other coins which were so be- 
dimmed that the name of the country issu- 
ing them was indiscernible, although some 
of them bore the dates of 1700, 1607, 1761. 

There was a coin dated 1761 that seemed 
to belong to Portugal, and there was a 
quaint piece that bore an almost indistinct 
harp and crown, dated 1781. There was 
also a French piece issued in 1781. 

It would indeed make » valuable collec- 

tion, aside from the circumstance of its

Houdin'’s Domestic Contrivances, 

Houdin acquired a comfortable com, 
petence by the exercise of his art, and he 
built a handsome villa at St. Gervais, 
near Blois. When he had retireg from 
business he amused himself by introgno. 
ing varous curious inventions into his 
place and the grounds attached t, it 
The garden gate was situated some 4 
yards from the house. A visit; T had 
only to raise a diminutive brasg knocker 
and let it fall upon the forehead of a fan 
tastic face—making but a faint sound— 
when a large bell was set in Motion in 
the villa. : 

At the same time the gate swung 
automatically, the plate bearing ti, 
name “Robert Houdin” disappeared, 
and another took its place on which was 
engraved the word “Entrez.” When 
the postman delivered the letters he had 
brought he was instructed to drop them 
through a slit in the gate into the recor, 
tacle provided for this purpose. The 
box, directly this was done, startej of 
its own accord on its journey to th, 
front door of the house by means of , 
miniature elevated railway 

Houdin invented, too. au inveni, 
contrivance by which, whils lying in 
bed, he could feet his horse in a stabj: 
fifty yards from the villa, for on touch. 
ing a small button there was put in mo. 
tion an apparatus that caused the exac 
portion of oats required for the animal 
meal to fall into the manger from the 
granary above. By another curious piece 
of mechanism a little bench that stood 
beside a ravine in a remote part of the 
grounds was so constructed that imme 
diately any person sat down upon it th:

Sweet Vengeance. 

A good joke is told upon twoSt. Cloné 
gentlemen, both of whom are well 
known young men. One of them is ; 
married man. The other day two young 
ladies from, well, it might have bee 
Minneapolis, arrived on a visit to hi: 
wife. Soon after their arrival the tn: 
gentlemen conceived a diabolical idea 
A mouse was captured and tied betwee 
the bed clothes in the apartment ocen 
pied by the visitors shortly before they 
retired. The reporter's informant re 
frained from giving the tragic details o| 
the fmding of the imprisoned animal 
and it must suffice to say that it wa 
a-w-f-u-l! There was no peaceful slum 
ber for the visitors that night, and unti! 
dawn was spent by the young ladies ir 
deliberating upon how to avenge th 
above practical joke. They succeeded 
most admirably. 

Last night the two gentlemen, whc 
eccupied the same room, retired as usual 
Occasionally they would remember some 
thing about the mouse and then a roa 
of laughter would be heard. But sud 
denly everything grew still. Then ther 
were some remarks that sounded lik: 
“cuss words,” and snddenly a prolonge 
snuffing noise, and then the anxiou 
listeners knew that all was over, 01 
rather under the bed. I¢ is explained 
that when the two young men proceeded 
to don what is commonly designated a: 
a “night dress” no ingress or egres

Wealth in the Watermelon. 

Every season develops more and mor 
fally the prevailing necessity for the dis 
covery of some practical and profitable 
use to which the surplus melon cro 
uy be pat. Every melon left in the 
field ut the en] of the season, except fo 
seed, represents a waste. A means by 
which this waste, which annually as 
sumes enormous proportions, could be 
averted would no doubt be hailed wit 
pleasure by every melon grower in th 
country; therefore the announcemen 
from the Southland to the effect tha’ 
such means has been discovered. if au 
thenticated, is an important one. 

The new.discovery, which consists 0 
converting the melon bulb into sirup, i 
is alleged. will establish in the south a 
industry scarcely of second importanc' 
to that of producing oil from cottot 
seed, and the product is vouched for 
being the very best ever yet made. | 
the report proves true, and there seem!

Found Nearly Suffocated in His Room, 
and Rescued by a Gentleman Who Had 
Apartments on the Same Floor—Unable 
to Put Outthe Fire an Alarm was 

Mr. Timothy O’Connell, the head clerk 
at the Boston Branch grocery, has apart- 
ments on the second floor of the Adams 
building at the head of the stairway leading 
from Temple street. The first thing he 
recollects this morning was crying out 
“Charlie! Charlie!’ Hethinks he must 
have been dreaming of an acquaintance, 
and the presence of dense smoke in his 
room caused him to cry out in alarm. His 
cries awakened Mr. Edward Turner, who 
has rooms on the same floor, and smelling 
smoke he immediately started out to inves- 
tigate. Fortunately he found Tim’s door 
open and pulled him out of bed nearly 
suffocated from smoke. 

Fire had obtained considerable headway 
in a closet in the room, and being unable 
to extinguish the same an alarm was pulled 
at 4.45 from Box 26. 

Clapp’s beautiful residence has been re- 
moved, which in the minds of many passers 
by is a great improvement. 

The funeral services of the late Reuben 
Joy was held Thursday afternoon, and was 
attended by a very large number of friends

at the Village cemetery.

The business firms occupying the 
Adams building are much pleased at 
the prospect of the block securing the 
post office. They of course have a 
view to business, but after all is there 
a more central or convenient locatior 
than that now occupied? If possible, 
the present quarters should be enlarged. 

The Quincy City Council has never 
met yet without a quorum, which 
shows faithful attention on the part of 
the Councilmen to the city’s interests. 
In Gloucester this week it took some 
time to drum up a quorum in the board 
of Aldermen, forty-five minutes being 

In commenting on free postal de- 
livery, the Worcester Spy says it ought 
to be universal, and adds that we need 
a better, much more than we needa 
cheaper, postal service.” 

The Old Colony Railroad should not 
imagine for a moment that _ the 
Quiricy and Boston Street Railway is 
at the bottom of the movement to 
widen the. Hancock street bridge at 
Atlantic. Little that company cares 
whether the structure is widened or 
not. It is the convenience of the 
travelling public that demands a wider 
bridge. The city deem 64 feet none 
too wide to be built the remainder of 
the street, and the request that the Old 
Colony widen the bridge from 30 to 40 
feet is asking none too much. The 
danger of runaways and accidents on 
the bridge and its approaches are much 
greater than on any other portion of 
the road, and properly speaking the 
bridge should be as wide as the street. 

We wonder what the Councilman 
from Ward Two really thinks of Han- 
cock strect as it is being rebuilt. We 
were about to say Telford road. This 
was what was called for, but we fail to 
see the ‘‘ arch” where the dirt beneath 
could all be taken out when rebuilt. 
If we are any judge, but we confess 
we are not experts and perhaps have 
no right to express an opinion, the 
foundation’ is not as good as the part 
of the street built in past years. We 
had supposed that angular stones were 
preferable to round cobble stones, and 
are surprised to see the latter used. 
The Mayor should keep an eye on the 

Braiutree’s water supply will come 
high. The town has had to fight a 
private water company, the mill owners, 
and will wind up with a suit against 
her daughter and granddaughter, the 
towns, of Randolph and Holbrook. 
All three towns being jointly interested 
at one time in taking of water from 
Great pond. Although Braintree has 
not taken any water from that source, 
yet she is implicated with the other 
towns, and the three are called upon to 
pay $52,000 in damages to the mill 
owners. Braintree proposes to let Ran- 
dolph and Holbrook pay the whole, 
and a suit is expected. 

There is sound sense in the argu- 
ment of the Lynn Item. It says, 
‘‘ When a man who has held an office 

twelve years starts in to hold it three |m

litical aspirations begins to wonder

cepted notions of a popular government.

and other valuables. 

Whilethey were at work a brakeman 
attempted to enter the car and was shot at 
by one robber. He gave the alarm and 
the train was slowed up to give an op- 
portunity ‘to capture the robbers, but 
they jumped from the train a as it was 
entering West Liberty and disappeared in 
the darkness,it then being about 5 o'clock. 

Messenger Scudder was bound in his 
chair with a wash line, which the rebbers 
brought with them. One of them, whom: 
the other called “‘Jack,’”’ tried to kill 
Scudder before leaving the car. 
his revolver at his head he pulled the t 
ger, but the cartridge failed to explode. 
The other robber then prevented him from 
trying again. ¢ 

When the train pulled out of West Lib- 
erty the two robbers again got aboard, 
holding the entire crew at bay. Scudder, 
who had been released, opened fire on 
them with a pistol from his car door, but 
was compelled to retreat, Therobbers re- 
mained on board until Bellefouiaine was 
reached, when they again jumped off and 
disappeared. The officers at Bellefontaine 
have arrested two suspects, 


Serious Row Over Property Ended in a 
Boston Street. ‘ 

Boston, Oct, 3.—The report of a pistol 
and the falling of amanat the junction, 
of Charlestown and Cross streets at 8:80’ 
Pp. m., yesterday, caused great excitement 
and attracted several hundred people al- 
mostly iastantly. Patrolmen Berg and 
Gleason of division 1 were on the spot ina 
moment, and took John B. Gazzle into 
custody. He was charged with doing the 
shooting. His victim was James Toner, 
the executor of an estate left by Charles 
Gazzle, brother of the accused, who died 
about a year ago. The arsailant did not 
deny the shooting,and said he was willing 
to take the consequences; that no one was 
dependent upon him, and that Toner had 
treated him shamefully—ruined him. 

It was found that Toner had been shot 
in the abdomen, but the ball did not pen- 
etrate deeply, and was extracted. It is 
expected that Toner will recover speedily. 
A 32-caliber revolver was used, which the 
victim says was drawn and fired without 
words or warning. Toner calls himselfa 
the man whom Dr. 
Peganni brought into print some years 
ago on acharge of blackmail. Gazzle is’ 
charged with assault with a pistol with 
intent to kill. Gazzle is a second-hand 
furniture dealer, is a single man, aged 45 
years, and bears a good character. 

Idaho's Election Returns. 

Boise City, Ida., Oct. 3.—Ineomplete re- 
turns from seven counties out of the 18 
in the state give Sweet (Rep.) for congress 
1500 majority. The same counties in 1 
gave Dubois, the Republican delegate, 980 
majority. The entire state is Republioan: 
by 1500 to 2000 majority. Late returns 
show that the legislature will prébably 
stand 33 Republican to 19 Democrats. Ow- 
ing to the great distance of many precincts 
from telegraphic communication, returns 
are coming in very slowly, and it will be 
several days before returns from the en- 
tire state will be received. 

LATER—Returns just received show that 
the Republican majority in the state is 
1500 with three Republican counties and 
one doubtful county to hear from. The 
legislature will be Republican by about 
89 to 15. The Democrats concede the state 
by 1000. Ce ieaaahts! at te

BUFFALO, Oct. 2.—The most exciting 
game of the season was played to-day, the 
Bisons getting the best of it by a neck. 
The pitching of Cunningham and Sowders 
was excellent and honors were even, each 
holding the opposing side down to six scat- 
tered singles. 

Weyhing, who occupied a seat in thegrand 
stand, was ordered out of the grounds 
once for the abuse of Umpire Snyder. He 
returned, however, and at the conclusion 
of the game renewed his abuse. A police 
captain took the recalcitrant pitcher in 
charge and he was hustled over to a neigh- 
borinz station house. He was admitted to 
bail. It is said that he was intoxicated.

Bostow, Oct. 8.—Hon. Charles R. Ladd 
of Springfield bas been made the Republi- 
can candidate for state auditor, and his 
name will go upon the official ballots. 
The state committee met at its head- 
quarters, J. O. Burdett of Hingham pre- 
siding and twenty-one members being 
present. The withdrawal of Maj. Gould 
from candidacy for the auditorship was 
received and read by the secretary, 

Petitions bearing sixty-eight names were 
presented. They asked the committee to 
postpone action upon the major’s declina- 
tion “until the sense of the party througb- 
out the commonwealth cao ascer: 
tained.” Chairman Burdett made a 
statement of his connection with this 
whole subject. The declination was

WASHINGTON, Oct. 3.—The treasury de- 
partment has decided to prosecute John 
H. Gould, and letters have been sent to 
the district attorney of Boston directing 
him to inquire into the financial condition 
of Gould.'The treasury department officials 
were much surprised that Gould was 
the ex-internal revenue collector for 
whom they have been searching. 
Nothing definite has been heard from 
the internal revenue collector since his 
disappearance from his post in Savannah 
in 1870, when the discovery of a shortage 
in his accounts was made. 


Inoffensive Germans Massacred Because 
of One Man's Indiscretion. 

ZANZIBAR, Oct. 8.—Particulars of the 
recent massacre of Germans by natives of 
Vitu have just been received. Four men 
were killed outside of the gate of Vitu 
and three others after a pursuit of several 
miles. Kuntzell was the last to be killed. 
Messchel was wounded, but escaped, ow- 
ing tothe concealment afforded him by 
some long grass. The murderers then 
proceeded to Kuntzel’s camp and killed 
Horn, who had been left in charge, de- 
stroyed all the German plantations and 
killed a planter named Debuke. The bod- 
ies of all the murdered persons lie where 
they fell, permission for the burial of the 
bodies being refused. It is stated that 
those who lost their lives were all inoffen- 
sive, industrious persons with the excep- 
tion of Kuntzel. The sultan had sum- 
moued them to his presence and disarmed 
them on Sept. 14, the day previous to the 
massacre, when Kuntzel violently abused 
the sultan, thus determining the fate of 
the party. 

An Honored Man Gone. 

BALTIMORE, Oct. 3.—Ex-Governor Philip 
Francis Thomas of Maryland, who was 
secretary of the treasury under President 
Buchanan and who held almost every 
office in the giftof the people of Mary-

He was a native of Maryland and a 
graduate of Dickinson college. He was in 
the Twenty-sixth and Ferty-fourth conj

senator from his state, but was refused a 
seat, in 1868. He served as secretary of 
the treasury for about one year.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.—Judge Sawyer of 
New York, on behalf of the committee 
that has been investigating the adminis- 
tration of affairs in the pension office, un- 
der the Cooper resolutton, said last night 
that he was surprised that the minority 
report of the result of the investigation 
had been given out. The evidence was not 
all in and the investigation was not 
closed. Taking up the allegations in the 
minority report one by one, Judge Saw- 
yer said there was not oneof the state- 
ments that he believed was borne out by 
the evidence, incomplete though it was. 

Cotton Trude Booming. 

New ORLEANS, Oct. 3.—The September 
crop statement issued by the New Orleans 
Cotton Exchange shows the largest move- 
ment of cotton for the first mouth of the 
season since the «ar, if not in the history 
of the trade. Including stocks left over 
at ports and interior towns, and the num- 
ber of bales of the new cotton crop 
brought into sight during September, the 
supply up to Oct. 1 is 928,667 bales against 
732,411 last year and 629,761 the year be- 

Def.ctive Memories. 

MONTPELIER, Vt., Oct. 3.—There has 
been considerable excitement for the past 
two days over a spasmodic attempt to en- 
force the liquor law. About 100 people of 
all classes have been summoned before

where they bought any intoxicant within 
three years. No one seems to remember 
baving purchased any except from the 
town agent, authorized by law to sell. 

The Morocco Strike.

Boston, Oct. 3.—It is understood that 
the Unite! States district attorney’s de 
partment is about to take action toward 
the evforcement of the law directing that

Disgraceful Scene in the Okla- 
homa Legislature. 


Proves to Be a Tough Bone of Conten- 
tion -- Representative Perry Chased 
Through the Streets by & Moh. 

GuTHRIE, Oklahoma, Oct. 3.—Yesterday 
wasaday of extreme excitement in the 
legislature, the occasion being the consid- 
eration of the bill for the permanent loca- 
tion of the territorial capitol. The lower 
house on Tuesday passed the bill locating 
the capitol at Oklahoma City. Before ac- 
tion had been taken on the bill in the up- 
per house, a motion in the lower house to 
reconsider the action of Tuesday was 

The friends the measure, how- 
ever, prevailed upon Speaker Daniels to 
sign the bill after the vote on reconsidera- 
tion, and Representative Perry quietly 
took the bill and started for the chamber 
of the upper house to obtain the signature 
of the presiding officer of that body. 

The enemies of the measure observed 
the move, and the legislative body be- 
came a howling mob. The spectators 
joined the members on the floor and an 
attack was made upon Speaker Daniels. 
It was demanded that he see to it that the 
bill be returned to the clerk. Daniels re- 
ferred the order to Perry, who was just 
about to escape from the hall, and who in 
the meantime had handed the Dill to 
Representative Nesbitt. Perryran into the 
street with the mob at his heels. He was 
caught. Some one cried, “Hang him.” 
The cry was taken up and became gen- 
eral. Thecrowd was in earnest. Perry 
begged for mercy and turned his pockets 
inside out. “Nesbitt has the bil.’ he 

Nesbitt was in the crowd and arush 
wus made for him. Nesbitt kept ahead of 
the mob for four blocks, then his strength 
failed him and he surrendered. He was 
mairchel back to representative hall, 
where he was compelled to deposit the bill 
on tha clerk’s desk. Speaker Daniels took 
the bill and, accompanied by W.C.Thomp- 
son of The News as a witness, repaired to 
the goveruor’s mansion, where, in the 
presence of the governor, he erased his 
name, saying, “I signed this bill under 
misapprehension.” In the meantime 
Capt. Cavenaugh and United States Mar- 
shal Grimes appeared in representative 
hall and calmed the excited crowd, which 
still €emanded the punishment of Perry. 
an Nesbitt. Great excitement prevails. 


The Thunderer Thinks It a Measure to 
“Injure British Interests,” 

Lonpon, Oct. 3.—The Chronicle doubts 
the wisdom of Canadian statesmen in 
stirring up a bitter feud with their power- 
ful neighbor on account of the McKinley 
bill, especially when the opinion prevails 
in many quarters that the new law is the 
prelude to a more enlighten ed policy. 

The Times is disposed to agree very 
largely with the Canadian ministers that 
the McKinley tariff must be recognized as 
a demonstration of hostility against Eng- 
land, hardly less decided than were the 
Berlin and Milan decrees of Napoleon. 
The Times adds: “No reason can be as- 
signed for it except a desire to injure 
British interests.” 

Mean and Dangerous Trick. 

SALEM, Mass., Oct. 3.—Deliberate at- 
tempts by miscreants to fill the grooves of 
the Essex electric railway tracks with 
stonex,and thereby to derail the cars, 
have been discovered, and has led to the 
offering of a reward of $100 for the dis- 
covery of the perpetrators. A car running 
on a down grade at nine to ten miles an 
hour was lifted off the track, breaking 
two pole brackets and carrying away the 
double trolley wires. The line was short 
circuited, a sheet of electric flame playing 
along the wires. Fortunately, the oper- 
ator at the power station got an inkling of 
the trouble and shut cff the current.

Science Has No Means of Proving It, but it 
Not the Case Why Were They Creategs 
Some ‘of the Conclusions Which Have 
Been Reached by the Professor. 

“You remember,” said the professor 
as reported in the Cincinnati Times si.; 
“my allusion some time ago to tha fact 
that Mars resembled the earth in man 
of its observed features. It has for yar? 
been the dream of astronomy to prov, 
that life exists in some or all of the mj) 
ions of stars which surround us. The 
poetic astronomer reasons in this way. 
All things were created for the use anj 
support of living beings. What use do 
the myriads of heavenly bodies Subserya 
if there is no life? Would not the earth 
be altogether devoid of interest j¢ life 
did not exist? If there was neither life 
nor thought what would be the sii 
cance of the universe? Reflect), 
this sort enkindle the lively ima; ion 
and speculation as to what the sci: nee of 
astronomy will eventually reveal rung 

to extruyugunt extremes, 
‘Mathematical astronomers, like Ney. 
ton and La Place, arouse by their mar- 
velous calculations a high state of en- 
thusiasm. But is this the only ling 

along which we can work? The pre- 
diction of eclipses, the division of tina 
the mapping out of the courses of cere 
tain heavenly bodies with perfect ac 
curacy, the discovery of comets, planets 
and suns—are those to be the final tr. 
umphs of the science which has revolu- 
tionized human thought at two or three 
stages of man’s history? Let me answer 
in the words of an enthusiast: ‘That jg 
not the aim. Behold those millions of 
suns, similar to that which gives light 
to the earth, and, like it, sources of 
movement, activity and splendor; well, 
those are the subjects of the science of 
the future—the study of universal anj 
eternal life. You are going to witness 
the dawn of a new day. Mathematica] 
astronomy will give place to physical 
astronomy, to the true study of natura’ 

“He goes on to say that by the study 
of nature he means the study of the con- 
ditions of life in the various parts of the 
universe; the physical condition of the 
planets, their geographical aspects, their 
climatology and their meteorology. [t 
will probably be proved that Mars and 
Venus are peopled by thinking beings, 
that Jupiter has not yet reached a con- 
dition where life can be supported; that 
the conditions are such on Saturn that 
the beings which inhabit it are of an 
entirely different organization from our 
earth dwellers. Still further, astronomy 
will show that the earth is but one place 
in the celestial country, and that man is 
a citizen of the heavens. It will thus 
lead up to a new philosophy, the religion 
of superior minds. 


“Such is the dream and such the final 
object of the telescopic search The 
best that can be said for it from a scien- 
tific standpoint is that the facts ob- 
served neither prove it nor disprove it. 
There is only one body where the condi- 
tions are believed to be such as to sup- 
port intelligent beings of our kind. But 
that is inconclusive. We can observe 
with our telescopes but three or four out 
of the millions of heavenly bodies. More- 
over, there can be definite adaptation. 
Should our temperature be greatly raised 
or lowered, life as it exists now would 
disappear from the face of the earth; but 
perhaps there are forms of life which 
would thrive under the conditions which 
are fatal to us. 

“Again, millions of years passed by 
before life got a foothold on our globe, 
according to the best evidence that we 
have, and for millions of years after life 
is extinct here it is expected that our 
planet will roll on through space. The 
period of intelligent man is but a mo 
ment out of an immeasurable lapse of 
time. It is not probable that, if it were 
possible to visit each one of the 50,000,000 
stars visible through our telescopes, we 
should find more than one or two at the 
best where our stage has just been 

“Whether the stars are inbabited or 
not, we know something about the ap- 
pearance of the universe as presented at 
some of them by analogy. 3 

“In the solar system of Gamma, in 
the constellation of Andromeda, instead 
of one sun, shining with a white light, 
any possible observer would behold three 
suns—a yellow sun, a blue sun and & 
green sun. As one of these suns would 
be setting another would be rising, and 
the color of objects would be constantly 
changing. When the blue sun should be 
in the zenith all the landscape—the rocks 
and the waters—would reflect the blue 
rays, throwing, perhaps, slight tinges of 
gold or green, due to one of the other 
suns as it was setting or rising. ‘ 

“This is but a suggestion of some % 
the magnificent sights which must be 
presented near the multiple, triple axd 
double stars, and we know of ti 
through telescopic observation. 

“The double stars especially love © 
show brilliant complementary color,

charmingly with that of the next star—

or pounded on the door several times and 
woke up the man that sleeps there and got 
the horse. 

It was just thirteen minutes from the 
time of the alarm until Hose 2, was under 
way to the fire. And it was certainly five 
or seven minutes more going over the road, 
or about twenty minutes in all. 

This is certainly a record which the chief 
engineer cannot feel very proud of and 
the members of the company are not res- 
ponsible for it either, as they reported at 
the house very promptly. A contract 
should be made for two horses, for at least 
a year, and then put a tapper in the stable. 

The cost of putting in a tapper would 
be very smail and the benefit to the whole 
city and especially to Wollaston, cannot 
be estimated. 

The same delay would have occurred if 
the fire had been in Wollaston, and con- 
sequent the loss might have been serious.

portance within the past forty-eight hours 
inthe field of politics. Several of the 
most prominent of the Republican leaders, 
in anticipation of the adjournment of con- 
gress, called upon the president and con- 
versed very freely with him upon the 
pending campaign aud the prospective 
movements in the direction of the nomi- 
nations of 1892. about eighteen months 

These gentlemen created quite a sensa- 
tion among their Republican colleagues 
in the house when they announced that 
the president had intimated to them, in 
sufficiently direct terms, that he would be 
in‘the field for renomination. This an- 
nouncement, coincident with the Portland 
collectorship appointment, gave the de- 
parture of the representatives more excit- 
inz interest than was anticipateda few 
days ago. There are indications that this 
movement on the part of the leaders of 
the louse was actuated by a desire to ob- 
tain some definite information as to the 
plans of the president, in order to govern 
them in their own course.

What wounds the friends of the speaker 
most keenly in this recent act of the pres-

yesterday at the Capitol. It appears that 
a‘ter the senate voted for free coinage, not 
less than twenty-five Republicans of the 
house had declared their approval of that 
vote and announced their intention to 
co icur in the action to the senate. The 
president saw before him ‘the wreck of 
his administration on the silver issue. He 
had openly opposed free silver, and made 
it one of the corner-stones of his public 
p»licy. The Republican silver men in the 
house cared nothing for that; they were 
determined to stand by their constituents. 
It was then that the president appexled to 
Speaker Reed tocome to his relief. No

As supplemeniary to the Hospital Sun- |

there should likewise be appointed a 
Hospital Saturdey tocome about mid-way 
in the year between the annual Hospital 

Sundays, for] take it for granted that the | 

latter from this yeag forward, is to be 
annual event. 

Before explaining what I mean by Hos 
pital Saturday, I would like to my | 
reason for offering the I sup 




pose ibe hospital was founded primarily for 

the benefit of those who may not be in a 

position, wher sickness or accident Ss over 
takes them to have the best medical at 
tention and nursing at their homes. If so, 

| then the working people are likely to be ben- 
efited most by this institution. Why then, 
|should they not have an opportunity af- 
| forded them for givirg an annual contri- 
bution to the funds ? The Hospital Sunday 
will not offer this adequately, for the reason 

that there is a large proportion of 1 

working classes who do not and will not 

go to any church, therefore they get over- 
looked. Yet such people do not desire 
that their more wealthy friends and neigh- 
bors should pay all the hospital bills, while 
they, the working classes, enjoy most of 
| the privileges and benefits. The 
I believe, are willing to contribute their 
|share if asked to do so, and a Hospital 

| Saturday just meets their case. 

Now this is what I mean by the sugzes- 
tion. Let a certain Saturday be appointed 
and on that day let every house throughout 
ty be canvassed personally by ladies, 
a large corps of whom could easily be in- 
to volunteer for so praiseworthy a 
In addition to that, contributior 
boxes or other suitable receptacle could be

into the same. 1am satisfied that a very

| such a movement during several past years 
| and with simply astonishing resulis. 

A Hospital Saturday was established in | 
London about the year 1870, and has con- 
|tinned to grow in interest and importance 
\from that date until now. Of course 
| London is altogether too large for a house 
to house canvass, but year by year a band 
of ladies, several hundred in number, and 
| many ot them titled ladies, members of 
lthe British aristocracy and leaders of 
London seciety volunteered to stand at the 
| street corners in the busiest thoroughfares, 
| on Hospital Saturday, in charge of large | 
|square canvas sheets, swung bammock- | 
like on poles, and into these sheets all 
| mauner of coins are thrown by the passing 
| crowds. The Lord Mayor himself acts as 
treasurer, and year by year that dignitary 
| | receives from these ladies all the way from 
| $80,000 to $100,000 as the collection for 
one day. The Hospital Sunday and Hos- 
pital Saturday collections in London alone, 
now averaging year by year, close upon 
$500,000 for the augmentation of the funds 
| of the various hospitals in the metropolis.

Children’s Playgrounds. 

On Monday evening, Oct. 6, the City 
Council will give a hearing to the petition- 
er for children’s playgrounds, Dr. W. L. 

The subject matter of this petition of 
the Doctor's is one that is of vital interest 
to every person, old and young in our new 
city. With the rapid growth of our popula- 
tion has come a demand for more land upon 
which to build houses to accommodate 
this increase of people. The large, open 
area of land. which has been hitherto, so 
far as the children are concerned, ‘‘no 
man’s land’? for aught possessorship 
troubled or interfered with their occupancy 
of it, are being divided into very small 
sections, simply and solidly for building 
dwelling houses upon them. The occu- 
pancy of these old farms and pastures by 
the children has gone and gone forever. 
There is literally, no lawful playing places 
for our little ones. Under this condition 
of affairs, what is the duty of the busi- 
ness managers of the city? Can any one 
doubt that there should be the open places 
in every ward, asked for by the petitioner ? 
Can there be any doubt that the duty of 
the present City Council is to exercise a 
wise forethought, and determine that 
among the duties imposed upon it by law 
to provide for the busiuess of the city and 
for the health of its inhabitants is also the 
implied duty to provide for education and 
recreation of the growing city in places 
where he may feel that he is at home, on 
ground of his own, where he is not at any 
time, for the slightest fraction of a mo- 
ment under the ban of any man who can 
tell him to “move on.” 

Who of our readers is there that does 
not recall the protest of the boys of Bos- 
ton in Revolutionary times that the sol- 
diery were occupying their play ground 
and demand that they be ordered away. 

Nothing more than PUBLIC RIGHTS for 
chi ldren will make a self-respecting, sturdy 
class of citizens. 

The LepGrr has the matter strongly in 
interest and we urge all our readers to at- 
tend this hearing and forward the object 
presented by the petitioner. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers 
to the Patriot who also feel desirous of 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have 
been readers of the Patriot for a quarter, 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Pat- 
RIOT is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers. 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Parrior and the Darty LEDGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as it is very expensive to collect 
newpaper bills.

A Preacher Must Pay $3000 for Com- 
mitting a Very Wicked Crime. 

SCRANTON, Pa., Oct. 4.—The jury in the 
breach of promise case of Annie Husaboe 
against Rev. Peter Roberts of the Ply- 
mouth Cogregational church, gave a ver- 
dict of $3000 dam ages for the woman. The 
case has created a sensation among the 
church-going people of the city. The 
deacons of Roberts’ church have clung to 
him and believed in him during the four 
years in which this case has been pending 
in court, but the evidence given has 
stunned them, and in case the young man 
does not voluntarily withdraw from the 

torate of the church, his resig- 
nation will be  peremptorily de- 
manded. Robertsisa graduate of Yale, 
and met Miss Husaboe at New Haven in 
1885. He wooed, won and betrayed her, 
and when she demanded immediate mar- 
riage to compensate for her shame,he sug- 
gested a criminal operation, which she 
finally consented to. While she was recover- 
ing from this, he fled to Wales, whither 
she followed him. There he renewed his 
promise to marry her, which had been 
given in America,and both returned to the 
United States. After further complica- 
tion, Roberts absolutely refused to fulfil 
his promise, and a criminal case was insti- 
tuted against him. The evidence for the 
plaintiff was very damaging. Attorney 
C. R. Pitcher and Dr. Hund both testified 
that Roberts had confessed to them the 
betrayal, and told of his advising the care 
of a midwife and of his violation of his 
promise tomarry the woman. Criminat- 
ing letters from Roberts to the woman 
were also produced. While in New Haven, 
Miss Husaboe was employed as a domestic 
by Ole Bull, the violinist.

tional league will hold aspecial meeting 
atthe Fifth avenue hotel on Thursday 
and formulate its plan for future action, 
and incidentally try to devise a scheme to 
hoist base ball out of the hole into which 
the unnatural war has buried it. The 
Players’ league officials evidently desire a 
conference, and the National league is 
ready to listen to any suggestion which its 
enemy might make. 

President Byrne of the Brooklyn League 
club says: “A conference may behad. A 
talk over the situation would certainly do 
no harm, anyway.” Mr. Byrne probably 
voices the sentiments of most of the other 
owners of the National league clubs. 
Those familiar with the working of the 
Players’ league, say the organization will 
undoubtedly purchase the Cincinnati club 
outright, and then lay siege to the Brook- 
lyn league players. By gaining possession 
of these league strongholds it is supposed 
the bringing of the restof the National 
league toterms will be aneasy matter. 
The transfer of the Circinnati club to the 
Players’ league is put down for to-day. 

That many of the Brooklyn players 
have been approached by the rival is as- 
sured. The management and players, 
however, say that none of the men have 
signed the brotherhood contracts as yet, 
neither have they signed Brooklyn con- 
tracts. The players seem content to let 
well enough alone. They see large sala- 
ries in the distance, and most of the men 
are probably satisfied to wait and grab the 
largest slice offered to them. Mr. Byrne 
fays that he will pay his men as large sal- 
aries as his business will permit. If some- 
body else offers his men larger salaries 
than he can afford to pay, then the men 
will have to’go elsewhere. 


New Form Issued, with Several Impor- 
tant Changes Therein. 

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 4.—A new form of 
contract has been prepared by the officials 
of the National Base Ball league. The 
important changes are summarized as fol- 
lows by Secretary Rogers: 

“The reserve of the 18th paragraph is en- 
tirely stricken out and a new paragraph 
substituted, giving the club, in clear, 
definite phraseology, the option to renew 
the contract for whatever number of years 
may be mutually agreed upon. The word 
“reservation” in case of disbandment, is 
also stricken out of the 15th paragraph 
and an authority for the club to assign the 
contract inserted. 

“The 17th paragraph, containing the 
ten days clause, is materially altered 
to the advantage of the player. After in- 
serting areason for the notice, namely, 
‘a lack of skill or playing ability below 
the standard requisite in a national league 
club’, it limits the serving of the notice to 
the period of the playing season. A player 
under this form cannot be released be- 
tween seasons without his consent. If 
during the season he be released while 
‘abroad’ with the club, he shall be entitied 
to traveling expenses back to the home 

“Another change in favor of the player 
is his right to appeal to the league direct- 
ors against the fines and penalties that he 
may consider unjust, whilst always pre- 
scribed in the leagueconstitution is affirm- 
atively expressed in the contract for the 
time. The clause against dissipation and 
immorality are strengthened by adding 
that the player must ‘absolutely refrain 
from late hours and from any excess and 
dissipation in eating, drinking or other- 
wise, and must ‘keep himself in the best 
physical condition to play ball,’ ete. 

“While the reserve rule is no longer re- 
ferred to in the contract it does not follow 
that it will be stricken out of the National 
agreement. In all probability it or its 
equivalent will always be as heretofore 
preserved as a necessity for the perpetua- 
tion of the game, but it is not likely to 
figure in legal contracts or law courts

: Change Furnishes a Text for Gossip. 

| WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—Thg members ‘of 
the international commission on the Inter 
conticental railway, proposed by the Pan- 
American conference, are slow in getting 
together. The three American commis- 
sioners—Messrs. Pullman, Cassatt and 
Davis—have not yet shown themselves 
here, and none of the regular delegates 
from other countries have arrived. It is 
expected, however, that Minister Cruz of 
Guatemala and Gen. Camano, who are ia 
town, will represent their respective gov- 
ernments. The commissioners from Brazil 
areon their way, and Peru, Colombia, 
Venezula, Bolivia and Chili have indicated 
their purpose to send members of the 
commission. No word has been received 
from Mexico nor from some of the Central 
American states which are too upset by 
their internal struggles. 

“The whole scheme of the International 
railway isin the air at present, and it is 
uncertain what shape it will take. The 
officers of the conference say that a meet- 
ing will probably be held by the middle of 
the month, and that after organization, 
sub-committees will be appointed to in- 
vestigate different branches of the subject. 
There are many questions which will re- 
quire careful handling, besides the prime 
one of the engineering examination for 
the purpose of finding a practicable route. 
Assistunce in the form of land grants and 
exemption from taxation is expected from 
the governments of the countries through 
which the road will run, and the extent, 
duration and character of these privileges 
may give rise to some interesting questions 
of international law. The United States 
commissioners will probably desire to 
have the principal officers of the company 
in this country, and there may be rivalry 
between New York, Washington, and 
other cities. 

The delegates from the southern coun- 
tries may not be ready to submit to our 
dictation at all, especially with the new 
road beginning in Mexico and ending in 
South America, without a mile of its own 
track in this country. Whatever the suc- 
cess of the scheme as a maiter of practical 
railroading, those who are ‘in it on the 
ground floor” will probably make a very 
pretty thing out of it. There were nearly 
fifty applicants for the three American 
places on the commission, and some of 
them brought a tremendous pressure to 
bear to win, with the evident expectation 
that it would be worth a good deal to

A Naval Change Which is Probably Due 
to the Barrundia Affair. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4.—There is consid- 
erable gossip among naval officers sta- 
tioned in Washington over the unexpected 
change in the command of the U.S. Ss. 
Ranger, which has been cruising along 
the west coast of Central America ever 
since the recent trouble between Guate- 
mala and Salvador. Lieutenant Com- 
mander George C. Reiter, who has been 
in command of the vessel ever since her 
departure from San Francisco, has been 
ordered home and will be relieved by Com- 
mander George E. Wingate, who will sail 
for his new station on the Pacific Mail 
steamship leaving San Francisco on the 
10th inst. The impression is general among 
his brother officers here that Commander 
Reiter is recalled because tne secretary of 
state is dissatisfied at the course pursued 
by him in regard to the Peace negotia- 
tions between Guatemala and San Salva- 
dor and alsoin regard to the Barrundia 
affair. The Ranger was in the harbor of

9. “Then began He to speak to the». 
ple this parable: A certain man planted , 
vineyard, and let it forth to husbandm, % 
and went into a far country for a Pa. 
time.” He is now about to tell then = 
their history as a nation and of their ¢ 
ment of their God and His servants ¢ 
the days of their coming out of Egy, ves 
unto His death at their hands. Wearens 
left in any doubt as to who or what js a 
nified by the vineyard, for it is write: 
“The vineyard of the Lord of Hosts js +}, 
house of Israel, and the men of Judah };. 
pleasant plant’ (Isa. v, 7). That also ex. 
plains who it was that planted the y;,,. 
yard—the Lord of Hosts. The hushang 
would mean the kings, prophets ay 
who ruled over the people as Go 
sentatives. His going away probably gi7. 
nifies the withdrawal of his manifested 
presence in the days of Samuel, when they 
desired a king, like other nations, thn: as 
He said to Samuel, rejecting Him and no: 
Samuel (I Sam. viii, 7). Or it may refer t, 
earlier days, when they relied on the ark 
rather than on God, who dwelt between the 
cherubim; or yet earlier, to the days o 
jucges when they forsook Him and He qj. 
lowed their enemies to oppress them. The 
contrast to all this is the vineyard of which 
He is the True Vine and His Father the 
husbandman, and all the faithful are living 
branches. as 

10, “And at the season He sent a seryan; 
to the husbandmen, that they should give 
him of the fruit of the vineyard; but the 
husbandmen beat him and sent him away 
empty.” We are very plainly told what 
fruit He expected; “He looked for judg. 
ment, but behold, oppression; for righteous. 
ness, but behold, a cry.” 

11. **And again He sent another servant: 
and they beat him also, and entreated hj 
shamefully, and sent him away e 
As to beating and shameful tre 
read Jer. xx, 2: “Then Pashur smote Jer 
miah, the prophet, and put him in t) 
stocks,”’ Also xxxviii, 6: “Then took t! 
Jeremiah and cast him into the du 
* * * andinthe dungeon there wasn 
water .but mire; so Jeremiah sunk in the 
mire.’”’? Read also in II Chron. xviii, 3 
how Micaiah, the son of Imla, was smittex 
and imprisoned and fed upon the bread of 
affliction and the water of affliction just 
because he spake the truth for God. 

12. “And again he sent a third: and 
they wounded him also and cast him o 
These three sendings probably cover all 
the prophets from Samuel to John the 
Baptist. They might be divided into those 
before the captivity, those after the cap- 
tivity and John, the immediate forerunner 
of Christ. 

13. ““Then said the Lord of the vineyard, 
Whatshall Ido?” Not what shalll do to 
punish these guilty rebels, how shall I 
most quickly sweep them from the earth? 
That would need no planning. A me 
ment’s withdrawal of His mercy and they 
are gone. But He is considering what 
else He may do that He may win them to 

“T will send My beloved Son. It may be 
they will reverence Him when they see 
Him.” Hereis a glimpse of the love of 
God as seen in the councils of a past eter- 

14. ““But when the husbandmen saw him 
they reasoned among themselves, sa) 
This is the heir: come let us kill him, that 
the inheritance may be ours.” Like Jo- 
seph’s brethren, who hated him and said, 
“Come now and let us slay him, and let 
us see what will become of his dreams” 
(Gen. xxxvii, 8,20). If we did not know it 
to be a.true story that is contained in this 
parable, we could hardly believe such in- 
gratitude possible. Such unheard of love 
to be thus rejected and abused. I believe 
that the greatest fact in the Bible, and in 
all history, and the one least understood, 
is the love of God. Who among us begins 
to appreciate the greatness of that whic 
is contained in John iii, 16? Who can 
fathom the height and depth or measure 
the length and breadth of the love of God, 
which passeth knowledge. 

15. “So they cast him out of the vineyard 
and killed him. What therefore shall the 
lord of the vineyard do unto them! 
Again He foretells His death. It is ever 
before Him. But the glory beyond t 
ens it up (Heb. xii, 2). He is thinki 
more of these poor blinded, self destroying 
people than of Himself. He shall mse 
again from the dead. He shall live for 
ever. The kingdom shall yet be His. But 
those who die in rebellion against Him 
must perish. 

16. ‘‘He shall come and destroy these hus 
bandmen, and shall give the vineyard to 
others, and when they heard it they salt 
God forbid.” Matthew says that it was 
the people who gave the verdict (Matt. x0, 
41); it may have been the disciples wh? 
said God forbid; or the disciples may bare 
given the verdict and the people have su 
“God forbid.” These husbandmen are the 
enemies of chap. xix, 27, who refuse & 
submit to Him and must perish. The ¥ 
yard given to others He explains in Matt. 
xxi, 43, by saying: “The Kingdom of God 
shall be taken from you and given to4 na 
tion bringing forth the fruits thereof.” 

17. “And He beheld them and said, What 
is this then that is written, The stone 
which the builders rejected, the same 5 
become the head of the corner.” ; 
from Ps. 118, the latter part of which like 
Isa. xii refers to the Day of the Lord when 
He shall have become Israel’s salvatio2 
Notwithstanding His rejection and 47 
proaching death He constantly points for 
ward to His ultimate triumph. 

18. “Whosoever shall fall upon that stone 
shall be broken; but on whomsoever 
shall fall, it will grind him to powder. 
This is from Isa. viii, 14,15, and Dan. ™% 
45, referring to the present and fut re 
sult of refusing to receive Him. /&' 
crucified and risen from the dead is 
foundation and the only foundation 0° 
which to build for eternity (Acts iv, 10-1 
and He tells us that the way to build is 
hear and do His words (Matt. vii, 24, 

19. “And thechief priests and the scribes 
the same hour sought to lay hands on Hit, 
and they feared the people: for they Per 
ceived that He had spoken this parable 
against them.” What blinded fools they 
were, for in the next verse we see the” 
sending out men who were to feign them- 
selves righteous so ay to catch Him in His 
words. After all His reading their hearts 
and telling their thoughts they still thin® 
to deceive Him, and this parable, which 
they see is spoken against them, instead © 
working repentance in them only makes 
them more bitter. How fully given ov 
to Satan they must be. Let us never be 
the least offended by anything our a 
Lord says or does or permits, but may 
things draw us nearer to Him.

water from Great Pond, is —— 

liable, and 

ought not to pay one cent of the Pins 
awarded by the Auditors. The cron); 
this opinion of ours rests on the proyisc, 
of the act of 1885, and reads as folloy,. 

Sect. 4 “The said towns, or sy, , 
them as act jointly, shall jointly ;,.° 
damages sustained by any person or 
ration re rere by the joint taking. 
any land, tof way, water, water sourte 
water right or easement, or by any othe 
thing done by said towns, or such of tj." 
as act jointly under the authority of the 
act, And each of said town Ik me 
spectively, pay all damages sustained jy 
any person or corporation in prope rd 
the separate taking of any land, 7); 
way, water, water source, water 
easement, or by any other thing 4 
such town, acting separately, under y° 
authority of this act. Any person or «. 

m sustaining damages afore: 
under this act, who fails to agree wit} . 
towns, or such of them as unite. y},, 
acting jointly, or with either of them yho. 
acting ely, as to the amount of 
damages sustained, may have the damon 
assessed and determined in the yy 
provided by law when land js taken ;.. 
the laying out of highways, on aypjio; 
at any time within the perio «; ; 
years from the taking of such |, 
other property, or the doing of vi hi-r jy 
under the authority of this act: bur o- 
such applications shall be mae after | 
expiration of three years. No applicatio, 
for assessment of damages shall be 
for the taking of any water, water ri 
for any injury thereto, until the y 
actually withdrawn or diverted by « 
towns, or such of them as unite, ac: 
jointly, or by either of them acting con 
rately, under the authority of this act.” 

It ought to be borne in mind that th 
report of the Auditors does not deal wit) 
legal points, raised by counse! during t} 
hearing, hence the question of the liabj ty 
of Braintree in the matter of damages 
described by the terms of the section of 
the act quoted, although ably presenta 
and insisted on, was not passed upon by 
the Auditors. There were other points 
raised by counsel for the purpose of guii- 
ing the Auditors to a fair assessment of 
damages, but these,—also ignored in the 
report,—being common to the case of a 
the defendants, there is not the sam 
occasion for our describing them, only the 
one we have specially described, because 
peculiar and important to the town of 

We do not want to bite off more tha 
we can chew, but having re-read the 
1885, also the act of 1886 and 
there is nothing iu them that cont one 
with other, only that the act of IS8i en- 
phasized the provision which exempts 
Braintree from the payment of any damages 
until she has incurred the liability by taking 
water from Great Pond, we would advise 
the town of Braintree to go slow in doing 
anything until we hear what the towns of 
Holbrook and Rando!ph are going to do 

To our minds the course which Braintne 
ought to pursue is as clear asiday. Wed 
not want to have any trouble with th 
towns of Holbrook and Randolph, but 
should they decide to pay the damage 
awarded the mill owners, they need expect 
no part of them to be paid by the town of 
Braintree. In the event however, of Brain- 
tree ever taking water from (reat Poni, 
then and not till then the towns of Ilo! 
brook and Randolph can oblige the town 
of Braintree to pay her proportion of the 
damages with accrued intertest. 

In conclusion we have this further to 
state, and it is not altogether foreign tothe 
subject on hand. Braintree has never al- 
vertised by offering extraordinary induct 
ment, like some other towns, to manufac- 
turers to come and establish their business 
among us and yet Braintree is going al 
and is bound to go ahead. This meat

Holbrook and Randolph, for the taking of 
their water supply from Great Pond, was 
of an exciting character at least in the case 
of those looked up to as the leading men 
among us. Some excitement was to have 
been expected. The hearing of testimony 
had occupied over two months, and a good 
many witnesses had been heard on both 
sides, including expert testimony, and the 
testimony of others who did not profess to 
be experts, but whose testimony was of a 
practical nature, gathered from observa- 
tion and experience, therefore of great 
value in determining the question at issue. 
All of this latter kind of testimony was 
furnished by witnesses living in Braintree. 
Indeed, but for the fact that the town of 
Braintree furnished this class of witnesses, 
exclusively, the towns of Holbrook and 
Randolph would have been at the mercy 
of the expert evidence brought forward by 
the mill owners, for neither of these towns 
furnished a single witness that was at all 
practically acquainted with Great Pond; 
that is its practical value for manufactur- 
ing purposes and the vicissitudes to which 
it was liable. 

During the continuance of the hearing 
the reports of the progress made was 
characterized by many ‘‘ ups and downs.” 
One day the report from the court would 
be ‘‘ the mill owners have got us,”’ and the 
next “the towns have got them sure.” 
The interest thus manifested was of a 
somewhat exciting character, leading some 
to go to the length of betting on the final 
result. A “‘fool’s argument’’ and there- 
fore a very foolish thing. But then there 
is nothing that excites the people of Brain- 
tree like water, and when this is the ques- 
tion “let no dog bark.’’ Still we do not 
think that the people of Braintree are en- 
tirely beside themselves, neither do we 
think that there is great occasion for ex- 
traordinary excitement over the final find- 
ing of the Auditors, and we are satisfied 
that there is not. 

The great offence taken to the report of 
the Auditors seem to be in regard to the 
amount of award for damages granted to 
certain of the petitioners more than to the 
total amount decided upon. For instance 
Jenkins Manufacturing Company are 
awarded the amount of $11,000, while the 
company paid only $10,000 for the whole

that of Stevens & Willis. How many for-

damages at all? Just think fora moment 
to what conclusion such an idea would 
lead, and how injurious to the interest of 
the town. Why it would show that Great 
+ Pond and the Monatiquot river were of no 
commercial value whatever to the town, 
whereas the idea entertained and boasted 
of, regarding these two natural sources of 
power has always been quite the opposite 
of that stated; and the fact that both were 
in Braintree, has always been urged as a 
recommendation for the establishment of 
business enterprises among us, and the fact 
that every one of the mill owners have 
their mills located on the river proves, 
conclusively, that the latter idea is the cor- 
rect idea. 

In all this we are not apologizing for or 
pleading the case of the mill owners in op- 
position to the interests of the town of 
Braintree, and that we are not, will pres- 
ently appear. We believe in stating the 
case of an opponent fairly and squarely,

Oct. 21, 22 and 23, 1890, 


Not in This Congressional District 
But in the Sixth. 


No Available Candidate Could be Found in 
the Sixth—The Names of Dr. Everett and 
Josiah Quincy Suggested and the Former 
Unanimously Nominated. 

The Democratic convention of the Sixth 
Congressional District, composed of cities 
and towns north of Boston, was held Sat- 
urday. Strange to say the convention was 
all at sea for a candidate, no one within 
the district being willing to battle with 
Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge, the present 
Congressman who is renominated by the 

Mr. Walter Babb of Melrose, an old 
time Democrat, nominated Dr. William 
Everett of Quincy. Mr. Alonzo Y. Lynde 
eulogized the doctor, speaking of him as a 
man of great ability. Mr. Evan H. Mor- 
gan while admitting that Mr. Everett 
would go through the district like a meteor, 
was opposed to going outside for a candi- 
date. Another delegate understood that 
Dr. Everett was to run in the Second dis- 
trict against Morse; he wished to know 
if he would accept the nomination of the 

Mr. William H. Hayes suggested that 
the convention take Josiah Quincy, ‘the 
leader and pride of Massachusetts states- 
men.’’ Don’t say his youth is against him. 
He has a noble ancestry and everything to 
recommend him, and I hope, if there is 
any doubt of Dr. Everett’s acceptance, 
your second choice will be Josiah Quincy, 
who will at twenty-eight years of age be a 
congressman from Massachusetts. If Dr. 
Everett is to decline, I place in nomina- 
tion the name of Josiah Quincy, and he 
will battle with Henry Cabot Lodge as 
Henry Cabot Lodge has never been battled 
with before. 

Mr. Babb said that the same doubt ex- 
isted in regard to the acceptance of the 
nomination by Mr. Quincy as Dr. Everett, 
and he moved that Dr. Everett be nomi- 
nated by acclamation. 

The question was put to the convention 
by the chair and carried without a dissent- 
ing voice, amid three cheers for the can- 

The chair appointed Q. A. Towns of 
Lynn, A. B. Lynde of Melrose, W. B. de 
las Casas of Malden, John P. Reynolds of 
Charlestown and E. F. Pierce of Chelsea, 
as a committee to notify Dr. William 
Everett of Quincy of his nomination. 

Dr. Everett when interviewed by a re- 
porter said: ‘“‘I have not yet received 
official notification that I have been nomi- 
nated. When I have anything to say to

“STON, Oct. 6. tf 


for a candidate, we think that it is a good 
thing to do occasionally. It was never 
intended by the founders of the constitution 
that voters should be limited by small dis- 
tricts in their choice of representatives, 
and the unwritten law which has gradually 
grown up governing the matter has been 
observed too much in the past. Why 
should a good man be kept out of the 
nation’s councils merely because his own 
district, perhaps, has a heavy adverse 
majority, when some other district might 
be proud to have his services? Mr. Glad- 
stone lives in Wales, but he is elected to 
Parliament from Scotland, and there seems 
to be no good reason why it should 
not be so. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers 
to the Patriot who also feel desirous of 
haying the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have 
been readers of the Patriot for a quarter, 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Pat- 
riot is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers. 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Parriot and the Dairy LEDGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as it is very expensive to collect 

newpaper bills. 

—Complete official returns of the 
National census need not be expected for 
two years. 

Streets and Sidewalks. 

WOLLASTON, Oct. 3, 1890. 
To the Editor of the Ledger: 

From letters that are reaching me 
through the mail, I judge that what I have 
said in the columns of the LEpcEr meets 
with a cordial response. It always needs 
some one to lead in such matters, and to 
strike right at an abuse, or short coming, 
I believe there is a lack of brains and pur- 
pose somewhere. That is pretty plain lan- 
guage but it is what I believe. 

Furthermore, I suppose I am known 
throughout the city, and this section of the 
Commonwealth, as a republican, and a 
staunch party man, soITam. But for any 
man to be in the City Council of Quincy, 
or to be the Mayor, and look at the affairs 
of the city from the standpoint of a 
partisan, and to act accordingly, is to act 
almost, if not quite criminally. Partisanship 
must be killed outright in the manage- 
ment of city affairs. I would rather have 
sidewalks than the triumph of any party, 
men can get on some how or another, but 
how about women and children? They 
suffer from the want of these things, and 
some people believe because somebody 
wants his party to win, by the use of city 
influence. In a letter I have just received 
from one of Quincy’s leading citizens, 
appears these words: 

“In your communication of the 27th 
ult. in the Datty LEDGER you ask, ‘ Has 
not the city the financial ability, and so 
forth, to build and keep in repair the side- 
walks of Wollaston?’ and also is there 
not ‘Legislative capacity enough in the 
City Council?’ I say yes? Now we of 
South Quincy can get through this hole in 
the ladder, and I wonder that with all your 
experience in politics you fail to do the 
same. It is the common talk with us that 
the Mayor, and his henchman, the Street 
Commissioner are so busy in repairing their 
fences in the west district, so that they 
may catch the democratic votes at the next 
election, that they cannot afford to look 
after the needs of the strong republican 
district of Wollaston. The Mayor evident- 
ly says to himself, ‘‘ Wollaston is sure, 
now lets contrive to catch some demo- 
crats in our net, and all will be well. The 
Mayor wants another term, and is trim- 
ming his sails to catch every gale that 
blows. Just see what the west district has 
got in two years !”’ 

And the letter runs on at length in this 
manner, I make no comment on this; but 
give the words of a republican of thirty 
years standing,and a man of high character. 
I know nothing as to the correctness of his 
views. Iam myself, liberal in city matters, 
and I would under uo circumstances claim 
for Wollaston what I would not willingly 
accord to all sections of the city. Indeed, 
I would permit other sections to have these 
improvements first if need there were, if 
we could be assured that we could certainly 
have them afterward. Just look at the 
sidewalk on Lincoln avenue and then won- 
der why a clap of thunder isn’t heard in City 
hall{ Lightning will strike sure, for the 
reason that the clouds of discontent are 
so full that they will burst, and somebody 
will hear the rain drop—the just and the 
unjust alike, I suppose. 

But as soon as I can get time I will post 
you up in good shape, meanwhile, I will 
give hints of the matter. I shall be glad 
to hear from all sections, and all letters will 
be treated honorably, I shall neither en- 
dorse nor condemn the letters. 


The Quincy Hospital. 
To the Editors of the Daily Ledger : 

The admirable letter from Mrs. Key, 
which appeared in your columns on Satur- 
day, is deserving of every attention from 
all interested in the well-being of our Hos- 
pital. I, for one, do most warmly endorse 
that lady’s suggestion that a Hospital 
Saturday be established forthwith, and I 
know that many of our citizens are of the 
same opinion. 

We have many organizations in the city, 
the members of which, I believe, would 
gladly undertake such a work as canvassing 
the city in aid of the Hospital; but per- 
sonally I would most like to see sucha 
society as the King’s Daughters undertake 
the work, it seems to me directly in the 
line of their movement. Who shall take 
the matter up and carry it through toa 
success, however, can easily be determined 
upon later, only let Mrs. Key’s suggestion 
be acted upon at once, and I would like to 
see the question brought up and discussed, 
or the sense of the people taken at the 
large gathering to be held in Faxon Hall 
this evening. Yours sincerely, 

F,. Mortey.

That $40,000 Job. 

“Well, so this is the beginning of Quincy's 
$40,000 road, is it?”’ said a well know citi- 
zen in a sneering way to a LEDGER man. 
The newspaper man paused in his labors, 
closed his foot rule, put it in his waistcoat 
pocket and said that he regretted to say 
that it was. 

“Why do you speak that way about the 

“This is why,” said the LepEER man, 
as he stooped down and picked up a piece 
of macadam road metal and applied his 
measure to it. “Telford, the great Eng- 
lish engineer, from whom this style of road 
takes its name, laid down the rigid rule 
that the road metal—such as you see under 
our feet—should be as nearly as possible 
uniform in size, the largest of which should 
pass, in its longest dimensions, through a 
ring two and one-half inches in diameter. 
This stone which I hold in my hand and 
which is a fair sample of the whole cover- 
ing, measures eight by five inches! What 
kind of a read do you suppose it will be 
after a year’s heavy teaming? 

Look at those small round unbroken 
stones,—macadam metal should always be 
composed of broken stone. The person 
who is responsible for this job is insulting 
the people of Quincy in daring to use such 
stuff for metal. It seems as if the whole 
job was being hastled through in the 
fastest manner possible, so as to get ahead 
of the cold weather. The Telford founda- 
tion is being laid in a rough uneven way, 
whereas, according to Telford, it should be 
carefully placed in position, forming a 
rough pavement, on which the road metal 
is placed.”’

The Force Bill. 

The Hyde Park Times says with 
much truth, we think, that the ** Force 
Bill”? has injured the Republican party 
in all sections of the country. The 
need of a stringent election law has 
long been felt. The demand was for a 
national and nota party measure. That 
the fifty-first Congress was unequal to 
the task has become plainly evident. 
The speech of Hon. H. G. Evart of 
North Carolina is sufficient proof that 
it has not only divided the party in the 
south but it has checked, at least for 
the present, that rapid growth of Re- 
publicanism which has been going on 
during the past ten years. Northern 
capitalists who have been and are now 
investing heavily in southern industries 
are bitterly opposed to it. Many of 
these men have held prominent posi- 
tions in the Republican party. They 
see as a result of such legislation a 
sectional prejudice against them and 
their products and an unjust curtail- 
ment of their market to the advantage 
of southern and foreign competition. 
True ballot reform in the south in order 
to be successful must be the labor of 
southern statesmen. It must be based 
upon broad principles and not emanate 
from the narrow selfishness of political 

Constantly Improving. 

The action of the Old Colony rail- 
raid ‘‘says the Boston Home Journal,” 
in reference to the discipline of their 
section hands, and for the bettering of 
the system ruling all the men employed 
on the tracks cannot be toohighly com- 
mended. The recent accident has 
made them realize that possibly the 
discipline might be improved, and with 
an energy characteristic of the man- 
agement of this road they at once set 
out tosee how to do it. They have 
put younger men into the responsible 
positions of section hands, evidently 
feeling that it is much easier to 
drill new men than to break older ones 
of careless tricks. The public confi- 
dence:in this road is immeasurably 
increased by such prompt action for 
their protection. Itserves to empha- 
size once more the sound management 
of this road, which is constantly im- 
proving its service, and seems deter- 
mined to have no other road excel it in 
equipment, management, and safety. 

State Auditor. 

The Somerville Citizen says, the new 
candidate for State Auditor, nominated 
by means of headquarters, politicians 
and the paraphernalia of a great boom, 
has resigned! His rival, who refused 
to do a thing to secure the nomination, 
is to have the reward of faithful service 
by seeing the party in its straits turn 
to him for aid. Itis well. It will be 
better if the party learns the lesson 
that this episode teaches. Don’t turn 
from the tried and faithful {o those 
whose chief stock in trade is the desire 
of the applicant for the office. 

The stockholders of the Boston & 
Albany railroad have voted to issue to 
themselves, under the authority grant- 
ed by the last Legislature, 50,000 shares 
of stock at $100a share, which can be 
sold at once at $228 a share. Thus 
$640,000 is given outright to the fortu- 
nate shareholders in that road. What 
a privilege to belong to the B. & A. 

Philadelphia furnished its own gas 
last year at a net profit of over $1,- 
000,000, and besides nearly $300,000 
were expended in a new plant. This 
is 80 opposite from the general rule of 
municipalities engaging in such enter- 
prises, that it seems almost like another 
miracle added to the list.

Circumstances Surrounding Mar- 
shall’s Sudden Disappearance 


unteers Spend Sunday in an Unsuccess- 
fal Search for a Possible Clue, 

Nasuva, N. H., Oct. 6.—The sudden dis- 
appearance of Henry N. Marshall at 10.80 
o’clock on Tuesday while on the highway 
about four miles south of the city proper, 

and while in the company of Harry Davis, 
is still involved in mystery, and the all- 
absorbing topic of conversation in many 
circles. Diligent search of the territory 
where the pistol shots were heard on the 
hight in question was made on Friday, 
and yesterday a squad of police, accom- 
panied by about 200 volunteers, again, and 
thoroughly, searched the district, under 
the personal direction of City Marshal 
Every conceivable place where a body 
tould be hid was investigated; old wells, 
of which there are about a dozen on the 
territory, were sounded; pine woods and 
scrub oak were gone through, and every 
pile of brush overhauled; double walls 
were examined with the thought that the 
body may have been concealed in them; 
unoccupied houses, barns, brooks, culverts 
and cornfields were all searched, but not 
the slightest clue or trace could be ob- 
tained. After five hours of persistent 
effort the search was abandoned for the 
Deacon George N. Trowbridge, who was 
several rods behind the boys when the fir- 
ing occurred and who lost sight of them at 
aturninthe road, gave the day tothe 
| work, as also did Willard Lindsey, who 
carries on the Roby farm and who em- 
ployed the Jads. The roads were lined 
with private carriages fram the city, and 
among the anxious searchers were O. A. 
Marshall of Hollis and James E, Marshall 
of Hudson, brothers of the missing man. 
These brothers believe that Henry has 
been foully dealt with. 

They say he had $115 in the bank, and

Principals in the Robbers’ Cut Affair 
Snfely Lodged in Jail. 

LEXINGTON, Mo., Oct. 6.—The Otterville 
train robbers were captured yesterday at 
Elmira, and are now in jail in thiscity. 
Detective Thomas Furlong has 
quietly working on the ase since Aug. 16, 
when a Missouri Pacific train was held up 
by masked men in Robbers’ Cut, pear Ot- 
terville. Last evening, in company with 
deputies, he proceeded to the house of 
Horatio S. Hines, a farmer near Elmira, 
and arrested him and his pal, Fravk Hoff- 
man, acountry sport and all round tough. 
The men were securely handcufied and 
brought to this place. It was at first said 
that five men were engaged in the rob- 
bery, but it now seems that Hines and 
Hoffman, unaided, held up the train.

The Latest from Lynn. 

Lynn, Mass., Oct. 6.—The Central La- 
bor union at its meeting yesterday after- 

noon discussed the subject of keeping the 

non-union men in the J. T. Moulton and 
other morocco factories over night. A 
special committee was appointed to wait 
upon the state inspector of buildings and 
call his attention to the alleged violation of 
thestatute which forbids workmen being 
kept more than ten hours per day in any 
factory. The committee willask to have 
the men turned out of the factory at night. 
The men work the usual day, but sleep 
merely in the factory. They are satisfied 
apparently. Moulton has fifty-two hands 
and claims no strike in his factory. 

Quite Different from the Thunderer. 

Lonpon, Oct. 6.—The Daily News says: 
The European expectation of a revolt 
among American fariners against the arti- 
ficial dearness cafsed by the tariff has 
never been realized. It is always threat- 
ened, but always postponed. ‘The idea 
that the new American tariff is a blow at 
Canadian independence is as absurd as 
the talk of excited people here, who 
hysterically declare that it is intended as 
an attack upon England. Few signs yet 
exist that Americans are awakening to 
the unwisdom of high tariffs.

to enter her room, and he was compelled 
to return to the residence of Mr. Groner to 
pass the remainder of the night. On

was horrified to find his wife lying dead in 
bed. She left vo letter of explanation.

ers. An agent of the Shearers’ union was 
summoned to court to answer to twenty- 
nine different charges of inciting men to 
break their agreements. He was con- 
victed and fined £155. Similar actions 
against other persons have been suspended 
pending the agent’s appeal from the!deci- 
sion of the court. The case has made a 
great sensation among the union men.

reasons, the principal one being that they

Cincinnati Club Transferred to a 
Brotherhood Syadicate. 


President of the National League Prom- 
ises a Surprise tor His Opponents— 
The Clubs’ Standing at the Wind-Up. 

CrNcINNATI, Oct. 6.—Cincinnati has 

struck its colors. The deal has been com- 
pleted in all save a few minor details, and 
the advance guard of the Brotherhood 
have surrendered the purse which has 
served to make Messrs. Stern and Stern 
march into retirement. The deal, which 
commenced in a spirit of bluff to ward off 
threatened invasion of the Cincinnati’s 
territory by the Brotherhood, resulted in 
an end that certainly proved surprising to 
half the Cincinnati enthusiasts. 
{ft was like pulling teeth to get three play- 
ers in line, and McPhee was under per- 
sonal contract to President Stern for 
three years, but he balked and wanted a 
slice of the $49,090 in the way of ad titional 
salary to consent to 2 trans’er of that obli- 
gation. To the Brotaerh.od be was offered 
£500 to consent, but he took his own time 
to consider. Reilly and Mullane were also 
obdurate, and the morning session was 

It rained hard in the afternoon, and the 
last League game could not be played. 
That gave the missionaries more time to 
read tracts to the trio of players. Every- 
thing seemed O. K., and Secretary Stern 
was signing Reilly; then the little presi- 
dent of the Cincinnatis exclaimed: “‘Nicht 
schrieben.”” The contract was jerked from 
Reilly’s hand, and the official declared: 
“Come ou; I’m tired of fooling; the deal 
is off.’ But it wasn’t. 

Secretary Brunell met the charges that 
were hurled at him by warm retorts. The 
storm of words did not last long. From 
the Burnet house the whole delegations, 
armed with umbrellas, proceeded to the 
office of Vice Presi.lent Kramer, where the 
legal transfer was made. Ex-Assistant 
United States District Attorney John E. 
Bruce acted as counselor for the Brother- 
hood, and he has been installed as their 
attorney in Cincinnati. Director Talcott, 
John M. Ward and A. L. Johnson repre- 
sented the Players’ league at the trans- 
fer, while Cincinnati’s president and seo 
retary took care of their own interests. 

Managers Loftus will continue in charge 
of the team, and the present intention is 
tomake him business manager as well. 
Only two of the Brotherhood teams are to 
be run in here for exhibition games, the 
Clevelands and Philadelphias. There isa 
possibility of Pittsburg being sent on 
ater. Itis toosoon to speak of changes 
for ’91, but Hoy aud Mack are two men 
who are promised. 

Eight of the old Reds have been signed. 
They are Harrington, Rhines, Reilly, Me- 
Phee, Mullane, Marr, Holliday and La- 
tham. The new club at once organized by 
electing A. L. Johnson, president; E. B. 
Talcott, vice-president; F. H. Brunell, sec- 
retary and treasurer, and John M. Ward 
and John L. Bruce directors. Cleveland 
will play here to-day. In addition to the 
price paid, $10,000, the Players’ Meague 
gave an indemnity bond and will take up 
all contracts. Thatincluded Foreman and 


“Nick” Young Speaks of Cincinnati’s 
Sale and a Coming Surprise. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6.—President Young 
of the National base ball league, ir an in- 
terview published in The Post, says: “At 
a meeting of the magnates of the League, 
to be held Oct. 8, all phases of the base 
ball situation will be discussed, and in 
theevent of thesale of the Cincinnati 
club having been determined on in the 
meanwhile, arrangements will be per- 
fected lo oking toward a new league team 
for that city. This is only contingent, 
however, upon a bona fide sale of Mr. 
Stcarn’s holding, for he can not dispose of 
the franchise which the League holds for 
Cincinnati.” Mr. Young intimates that 
when the League plans are perfected at 
the coming meeting their announcement 
is likely to surprise its opponents,

A Mother and Her Three Children Suf- 
focated in a Burning Building. 

Dust Oct. 6.—One of the most ter- 
rible meee ever known in Dubuque 
occurred Sunday morning at 4 o’alock. 
The residence of John McBee was discov- 
ered on fire. A neighbor ran across and 
tried to arouse the family. While kick- 
ing at the door, the window in the upper 
story crashed, and McBee fell to the 
ground. For a few moments he was 
senseless. When he recovered he began 
crying his family were upstairs, The 
flames were quickly extinguished, and the 
firemen entered at the top of the landing. 
The mother and three children were found 
and quickly removed. Mrs. McBee and 
the eldest daughter, Rose, aged 18, were 
dead. The youngest daughter, Bertha, 
aged 16,and Charley, 5 years old, were 
still alive, bnt have died since, McBee 
says that he awoke nearly suffocated and 
roused his wife. They groped in the 
smoke and darkness until McBee struck 
the window through which he leaped or 
fell. The mother was with him, but re 
membering her children,;went back to save 
them. When found, the family were in a 
group with their arms about each other’s 
necks, The bodies were very slightly 


White [allroaders Will Strike Unless 
Negroes are Discharged. 

Hovston, Tex., Oct. 6.—Thg Houston 
and Texas Central railway has employed 
negro wotchmen in its yards for several 
years. About two weeks ago a demand 
was made that their places be filled with 
whites. The demand was refused and the 
foremen all struck. Grand Master Wil 
kinson was sent for and has been in the city 
two days, trying to adjust matters ami 
cably, but without avail, as the officials oi 
the Central are firm in their position 
arguing that ifthe colored men are good 
enough to sit in the councils of the 
Knights of Labor they should be good 
enough to work with. Grand Maste1 
Wilkinson has wire | to all members of thé 
executive council of the Railway Federa 
tion, which recently met in Terre Haute 
to come to Houston at once, and thé 
impressien is that a strike is immi- 
nent. The Southern Pacific railroad 
may also be involved, as both roads are in 
the Huntington system. 


Manufacturers and Employes Have Suf- 
fered from the Siege. 

BINGHAMTON, N. Y., Oct. 6. — The long 
and bitter struggle between the cigar- 
makers in this city and their employers ig 
ended. Thecigarmakers held a largely 
attended meeting, and voted to declare the 
strike off. The fight had been the mosi 
disastrous one ever experienced here. A 
couple of factories have been obliged t« 
make assignments, and on the other sidé 
there has been much want and suffering 
among the improvident employes. The 
leaders of the strike have lived well, many 
of tbem junketing about the country col 
lecting funds for the strikers and living 
on the fat of the land. Some of the mors 
unlucky strikers have been obliged to ask 
aid from the poormaster. The strike 
called out about 3000 employes. 


Nearly Four Hundred Soldiers Drowned 
by the Collapse of a Bridge.

the collapse of abridge at Kovno, during 
the recent army maneuvers in Russia 
The same journal adds that the Russiar

Denounced by Austrians. 

VIENNA, Oct. 6.—The Austrian newspa 
pers are full of angry articles on the new 
American tariff, which receives mori 
downright abuse than genuine criticism 
The government is trying to allay the ex 
citement over the measure. The ministet 
of commerce, addressing a delegation, 
firmly declared that he was unable to ex 
ercise pressure in Washington, becaus¢ 
the American imports into Austria wer¢

The Futility of Uniform Divorce Laws. 
The cry has been for several years for 
United States interference in divorce 
legislation by means of uniform mar- 
riage laws throughout the country, the 
assumption being that people troop back 
and forth from one state to another and 

get divorces for causes which would not Vv 

be sufficient in their own states, But 
all this has been effectually disposed of 
by the recent masterly report of the 
Hon. Carroll D. .Wright, the United 
States commissioner of labor. 
shown that more than 80 per cent. of all 
divorces are procured in the states in 
which the couples were married. 
gards the remaining 20 per cent. the par- 
ties, in very many instances, had immi- 

grated to other states after jeune ers can, I saw him buyin we 

become bonafide residents, with no 
thought of divorce. Sothat the number 
of those proved to have gone to other 
states for the purpose of ing di- 
vorces is probably much less than 10 per 
cent. of the whole, It is apparent then 
a en laws can no longer 
upon as a panacea.—Rey,

they should be.

missioner of Public Works, and ealling 
the attention of the Mayor to his work: 

WHEREAS, there was duly voted and 
ap propriated in in the Annual App TOpriation | 
i the sum of cicht hundred (800) dollars 
for the express purpose as therein named, 
the Widening and deepening of brooks, in 
the expectation the work would be prose | 
cuted at that season of the year best 
adapied for it, and with the belief a partial | 
remedy might be afforded the numerozs | 
petitioners who have appealed to this 
Council because of the injury to their 
property and the menace to the public 
health from the overfiowi ne and Siagnant 
condition of the lands BCjecent thereto, 
resulting largely from the washings of the | 
| streets filling and these chan- | 
nels. Therefore be it 
ed,—The Council having duly} 
voted the money for the express purpose as | 
therein named, views with alarm the negiect 
of this very important work, and this season | 
now practically closed also tne diversion of 
the money appropriated to purpose foreign 
to the spirit and of the Bill, and /| 
respectfully calis the attention of his 
Honor the Mayor, to the fact. i

Speaking of house building, a writer 
says: What is true of our life in 
general is also true of our homes. We 
are all, ina sense, living beyond our 
means, that is, as far as food, clothing 
and travelling are concerned we are en- 
joying what have been the privileges 
of the rich. If you doubt this stand 
in the provision market or the grocery, 
and listen to the orders given ; or take 
your position at the street corner and} 
judge the rich man by his clothing, if| 
youcan. All know it to be a fact 
that it is the great middle class that 
fills our cars with tourists. Such being 
the case, we naturally see the same 
spirit manifest in thehouse. We want 
al] the luxuries for a modest sum, and 
to attain them we cramp the rooms, the 
halls and the closets, and put in more 
angles and irregularities than you can 
find in the labyrinths of old Crete. 
This question, then, should be con- 
sidered among the wants when the 
family consultation is held: “‘ Can all 
the modern conveniences, gimcracks 
and projections offset chambers which 
cannot possibly hold enough air for 
the use of healthy lungs?” 

One of the absurdest craze of recent 
times is that which has spread through 
several of the states and which looks 
to the formal teaching of patriotism in 
the schools by converting the American 
flag into asort of fetich. That every 
school should be provided with the 
Stars and Stripes is right and that 
the instinct of patriotism should be 
fostered and cherished in American 
scholars in every natural and true way 
isalso right and commendable. But 
any such artificial and theatrical at- 
tempt to “‘ teach”’ patriotism as is pro- 
posed in New York deserves to break 
down and will break down, though it 
may do some harm while it is going 
on—Boston Courier. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers | 
to the Patriot who also feel desirous of 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have 
been readers of the Patriot for a quarter, 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Pat- 
RIOT is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers. 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Patriot and the Dairy LEDGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as it is very expensive to collect 
newpaper bills. 

Dg Thomas Addison of Fairfax county, 
Va., took from the hoof of an old family 
cow the other day a.“thandsome gold

Howard Brewster Confesses Arson, Clear- 
ing the Character of Two Young Men 
Under Arrest for the Crime. 

Banoor, Me., Oct. 7.—An arson case 
which has occasioned the utmost excite- 
ment in Maine has now been unravelled, 
although interesting develepments are 
still expected before the guilty party in 
the case receives his sentence. About the 
middle of August Bert Ryder and Harvey 
and Howard Brewster, three young men, 
were arrested on the charge of having 
burned in the night time a house in Crys- 
tal plantation, occupied by George Hack- 
ett, who lived there alone. 

After a hearing, in which B. L. Smith 
appeared for the respondents, and John 
Scott for the state, Howard Brewster was 
discharged and exonerated, but probable 
cause was found against the other two 
young men, and they were committed to 
jail in Houlton, without bail, to await 
trial this fall. There has been a decided 
change in the case, however. Howard 
Brewster has voluntarily appeared and 
made a confession that exonerates the two 
young men that are now languishing be- 
hind the bars. 

He says that he burned the Hackett 
house and was assisted by neither of the 
others. He further states that he was 
hired to do the job by a man named 
Charles Main, an enemy of Hackett’s, who 
furnished him with the kerosene oil and 
the other necessary aids for doing the job. 

It seems that the man Hackett is very 
unpopular, and his charge against the 
boys as an excuse for setting the fire was 
that they had a grudge against him. The 
men imprisoned cannot be released until 
the gran! jury indicts somebody else for 
the crime, but Howard Brewster says he 
will not have his brother suffer for his

San Francisco Firm Will Build the New 
Coast Line Battleship. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.—While no formal 
response has yet been received by the 
navy department from the Union iron 
works of San Francisco, in regard to the 
construction of one of the coast line bat- 
tleships, Mr. Scott, the president of that 
company, who is now in Washington, has 
intimated to the navy department that 
they will undertake the contract on the 
terms proposed by the department. These 
provide for the bu'l liag of a vessel twelve 
feet longer than origisuliy planned by the 
department, for the sum of $3,180,000, 
being $60,000 more than the Cramps of- 
fered to build a single vessel for, provided 
they got the contract for but one, and also 
being $60,000 less than the bid of the 
Onion iron works for a single vessel, un- 
der the original plans of the government, 
It is the department’s desire that the 
three vessels shall be built on the same 
plan, and the San Francisco company is 
allowed $60,000 more than the eastern 
company, in order tocovera portion of 
the additional expense in the transporta- 
tion of steel and other material. 


Speaker Daniela Not Likely to Visit 
Guthrie Just at Present. 

Kansas City, Oct. 7.—A dispatch from 
Guthrie says that the excitement there 
over the capitol location question still 
continues. Presid: t of the Senate Gar- 
denshire says that he will! not sign the bill 
locating the capitol at Oklahoma City, 
inasmuch as Speaker Daniels contests the

Republicans Will Unite With Other Fac- 
tions to Oust the “‘Braves.” 

New York, Oct. 7.—The Republican 
county convention last night virtually de- 
cided, after a strong fight, to unite with 
other factions in order to oust Tammany 
from authority. The delegates from the 
Thirteenth assembly district, that adhered 
to Assemblyman F. S. Gibbs, were turned 
out of the hall. Col. Cruger moved that a 
straight ticket be run, with Chguncey M. 
Depew for mayor. He opposed combina- 
tion. Ex-Judge Patterson said Mr. Depew 
could not carry the city. Practical poli 
ticians knew a straight ticket would be 
knocked out. The motion to appoint a 
committee to consider the advisability of 
coalition passed, and the convention ad- 
journed to Friday night, when the com- 
mittee will report. 

Birchall Virtually Confesses. 

ToRONTO,Oct. 7.—A special to The Globe 
from Woodstock says: Birchall’s story of 
the murder of Benwell is gradually oozing 
out ofhim. Itcannot be said, however, 
that he has made anything like a clean 
breast of the murder. All he has done 
thus far is to make a number of half state- 
ments, and to drop hints and admissions 
which, pieced together, form a tolerably 
coherent story. Heis constantly talking 
about the case, and before the end comes 
will probably give a full account of it. To 
sum up, he acknowledges that he was an 
accessory, and therefore merits the sen- 
tence passed upon him. 

Liberal Bequests. 

HARTFORD, Oct. 7.—The will of Newton

Board of Foreign Missions, American 
Missionary association, and Hartford City 
Mission receive each $5000, the American 
Home Missionary society $10,000. The 
Hartford Theological seminary receives 
about $100,000 outright and the residum 
of the estate, subject to the above an- 
nuity. The estate amounts to about

Monday of February, 1891, or of the February next preceding 
their appointment, and until their respective successors have 
been appointed and qualified; and thereafter in each succeeding 
January, after the first Monday, one person shall be so appointed 
a member of said board, who shall hold his office for three years 
from the first Monday of February next ensuing, and until his 
successor has been appointed and qualified. Appointments shail

or easements in said city, necessary for the establishment of 
such system of sewerage and sewage disposal, and for main

together with the outlet or outlets for the discharge of the sewage 
into tide water, and the connections therewith; and may divert 
streams or water courses, may construct sewers under or over 
any water course, street, bridge, embankment, railroad, highway 
or other way, in such manner as not unnecessarily to obstruct 
the same, and may enter upon and dig up any private land or 
street for the purpose of laying such sewers beneath the surface 
thereof, and of maintaining and repairing the same, and may do 
any other thing necessary or proper in executing the purposes 
of this Act. 


Said board shall, within thirty days after its selection of 
any lands, flats, water rights, rights of way, easements or other 
property to be purchased or taken under this Act, file, or cause 
to be recorded, in the Registry of Deeds for Norfolk County, a 
description thereof sufficiently accurate for identification, with

or for a jury, said city may at any time file an offer in writing, 
with the other papers in the case, to pay the petitioner a sum 
therein specified as damages, and if he does not accept the same 
within ten days after notice of such offer and does not finally

city shall recover costs from said date, and the petitioner, if he 
recover damages, shall be entitled to costs only to the date of 
the offer.

water below high water mark be subject to the provisions of 
chapter nineteen of the Public Statutes and of all acts in 
amendment thereof, so far as the same are applicable to the

Boston and New York Sample the 
New Tariff Law. 


And Get Big Consignments Entered at 
the Custom House in Time to Avoid 

Paying High Duties. 

Bostox, Oct. 7.—The new tariff law 
went into operation in Boston very 
quietly. The Cunard steamer Pavonia, 
which was expected Saturday, did not 
arrive until yesterday morning, so her 
cargo comes under the new schedule. The 
Navarro of the Furness line and the Hin- 
doo of Wilson & Son’s arrived Sunday 
and were allowed to enter. This, however, 
did not mean the legal entry of the mer- 
chandise on the vessels, The merchants 
were not allowed, it is understood. by 
order of the collector, to enter their goods, 
for the custom house by government regu- 
lation is not allowed to be open on Sun- 
day for the transaction of such business. 
Some of those, however, who had godds 
on board will make a test pvint of this. 
There were several lots of gin and other 
liquors on these steamers. 

Some of the Boston liquor dealers, how- 
ever, proved themselves shrewd ones. One 
dealer immediately after the passage of 
the McKinley bill telegraphed to the Can- 
adian agents of certain gin manufacturers 
of Holland to send him at once by train 
all of the gin and brandy that they could 
possibly spare. Another sent a similar 
message to the same agents. They di- 
vided their stock between those two Bos- 
ton men, and the consignment, consisting 
of about 1200 cases and 50 casks, arrived 
in this city last Saturdayin time to escape 
the new rates. 

The steamer New Brunswick of the In- 
ternational line arrived at port from Nova 
Scotia Sunday morning. She had a large 
cargo of apples, on which the duty ig 25 
cents a bushel. Formerly apples were on 
the free list. Instead of coming direct to 

Boston from Digby and Annapolis, as is | 

the rule, the steamer put into the nearest 
American port of entry, Eastport, Me., 
on Saturday, and there the apples were 
formally entered. Being an American 
steamer, the New Brunswick was then al- 
lowed to proceed coastwise to Boston. 
Thus did the owners of the apples save 
some money. 
How It Worked in New York. 
New York, Oct. 7.—Tite new tariff bill 

went into operation at the custom house | 

with little or no friction in its general 
workings. The day was alight one com- 
pared with any heavy day of last week, 

and the total receipts were $576,592.84, | 

which is about the average amount col- 
lected. Last week the receipts were 
doubled, the e@ollection being move than 
$6,000,000, which was caused by the rush of 
importers and others to enter the goods 
under the old tariff. 

One question which has already given 
some trouble was again under considera- 
tion. It is whether goods now in the 
bonded warehouses, imported under the 
old tariff before Oct. 1, and placed on the 
free list by the new law,can be with- 
drawn from bond under the new law be- 
fore Feb. 1. There are many lots of goods 
now in bond which will be affected by the 
settlement of this question, and large 
sums of money areat stake. The diffi- 
culty comes from the wording of a section 
of the law. Collector Erhardt and Special 
Deputy Collector Couch have been over- 
whelmed with inquiries of the interpreta- 
tion of this section. 

On Saturday Col. Erhardt sent a tele- 
gram tothe treasury department asking 
for instructions, and Assistant Secretary 
Spaulding answered that the goods could 
be withdrawn on the old schedule and that 
the importers, after paying the duties, 
might protest to the board of general ap- 
praisers. Collector Erhardt and Mr.Couch 
thought that there was some error in the 
transmission of the telegram and repeated 
their inquiry. No answer has yet been 


A Condemned Murderer Escapes from 
Prison by a Clever Trick, 

GREENVILLE, S. C., Oct. 7.—A sensation 
was created here by the escape from jail 
of “Bill” Howard, who is under death sen- 
tence for the murder of a confederate in 
the moonshine whiskey business over a 
year ago. Howard's wife was allowed to 
spend the night in the cell with her hus- 
band. In the morning Howard, dressed in 
his wife’s clothing, came down the Stairs 
of the jail with an infant in his arms and 
leaving the baby at a relative’s house he 
fied before the jailor had discovered the 
trick that bad been played on him. Mrs. 
Howard, who isa buxom mountain girl 
of 17 years, now occupies the cell vacated 
by her husband. Officers are in pursuit 
of the escaped prisoner, but his capture is 
hardly possible.

Said commissioners shall cause to be made and retained in their 
office, at the expense of the city, complete plans and descriptions 
of all sewers and drains composing said system, or otherwise, 
belonging to the city, and shall keep a true record of the 
charges of making and repairing the same, and of all assess- 
ments therefor. 


The city shall pay one-third of the cost of said system of 
sewerage and sewage disposal 


Said commissioners shall assess the owners of estates situ- 
ated within the territory embraced by said system and benefited 
thereby their proportional parts respectively of the estimated 
average cost of all the sewers therein, by a fixed uniform rate, 
according to the frontage of such estates on any street or way in 
which a sewer is constructed, or according to the area of such 
estate within a fixed depth from such street or way, or according 
to both frontage and area, and every such owner shall within 
three months after written notice of such assessment served on 
him or on the occupant of his estate, or sent by mail to the last 
address of said owner known to said commissioners, pay the sum 
so assessed to the city treasurer. Provided, that said board may, 
upon written request of such owner, made within said three 
months, apportion said assessment into two or three equal parts, 
one to be paid within the time above named and the other part 
or parts in one and two years next succeeding. Said board shall 
certify such apportionment when made to the treasurer. In 
eases of corner lots and lots abutting on more than one sewered 
Street, the same area shall not be assessed more than once. No 
assessment shall be made with respeet to any estate until it can 
be drained by the sewer. When a sewer has been built running 
through land other than a street, no assessment shall be made as 
to said land abutting on said sewer until that part thereof oecu- 
pied by the sewer shall have been laid out as a street. 


An assessment so made shall constitute a len upon the es- 
tate for three years after it is made and notice served as above 
provided, or in case of apportionment, for two years after the 
last part is due, and may, with incidental costs and expenses, 
be levied by sale of such estate, or so much thereof as shall be 
sufficient to discharge the assessment and intervening charges, 
if the assessment is not paid within three months after service 
of said notice, or if apportioned, within three months after any 
part has become due. Such sale and all proceedings connected 
therewith to be conducted in like manner as sales for the pay- 
ment of taxes; the owner and mortgagee to have similar rights 
of redemption. Such assessment or parts thereof may also be 
collected by an action of contract in the name of the city of 
Quincey against the owner of said estate, brought at any time 
within three years after the same has become due. 


Any person aggrieved by such assessment may at any time 
within three months after service of the notice mentioned im 
ni is Act, apply to the Superior Court of said 
County for a jury to revise the same, but before making such 
application he shall give fourteen days’ notice in writing of his 
intention so to do to the commissioners, and shall therein partic- 
ularly specify his objection to the assessment; to which specifi- 

cation he shall be confined before the jury. 


All the provisions of chapter fifty of the Publie Statutes 
and of acts in amendment thereof pertaining to 
drains, not inconsistent with this Act, shall apply to the city of 
Quincy in carrying out the provisions of this Act.

Said city may, for the purpose of paying the necessary ex- 
penses and liabilities to be incurred under this Act, issue from 
time to time bonds, notes or serip to an amount not exceeding 
in the aggregate four hundred thousand dollars beyond the limit 
of indebtedness fixed by law for said city; said bonds, notes or

Has Been of Inestimable Value to Those 
Having Claims of Long Standing— 
Threatened Exterminatien of Far Seals. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.—Pension Commis- 
sioner Green B. Raum’s annual report 
shows that there were at the end of the 
last fisca! year 537,944 pensioners upon the 
rolls, classified as follows: 

Army invalid pensioners, 392,809; army 
widows, minor children and dependent 
relatives, 104,456; navy invalid pensioners, 
5274; navy widows, minor children and de- 
pendent relatives, 2460; survivors of the 
war of 1812, 413; widows of soldiers of the 
war of 1512, 8610; survivors of the Mexi- 
can war, 17.158: widows of soldiers of the 
Mexican war, 6764. 

There were 66,637 original claims allowed 
during the year, 14,716 more original claims 
than were allowed during the year 1889.and 
6385 more than were allowed during the 
fiscal year of 1888. The amount of the 
first payment in these 66,637 original cases 
amounted to $32,478,041, being $11,036,492 
more than the first payments on the orig- 
inal claims allowed during the fiscal year 
1589, and $10,179,225 more than the first 
payment on the original claims allowed 
during the fiscal year 1588. The average 
value of the first payments on these orig- 
inal claims for 1899 was #485. The aver- 
ageannual of each pension during the 

fiscal year was #134. 

At the close of the fiscal year there re- 
mained in the hands of the pension agents 
the sum of #580,283,87 of the pension fund 
which had not been disbursed, for want of 
tirne, and which has been returned to the 
treasury; and there were 2,638 pensioners 
unpaid at the close of the fiscal year who 

were entitled to receive %4.357,347, which | 
has since been paid from the appropriation | 

for pensions for the fiscal year 1891. 

Of the system of “completed files” organ- 
ized by him, the commissioner says: 

This system has had the effect of en- many thousand claimants whose 
claims have been pending from five to 
twenty years, to bring their claim to the 
attention of the bureau for adjudication 
and allowance, and the complaint of delay 
has been reduced to a minimum. This 
system throws the responsibility mpon the 
claimant and his attorney, of having the 
claim adjudicated, and has proved to be 
more satisfactory than the old system of 
leaving the selection of claims for adjudi- 
cation to the discretion of the file clerks. 
As a result of these charges in the busi- 
ness methods of the office more work has 
been accomplished in a given time than 
was ever performed before. 

On Oct. 21, 1889, when I took charge of 
the office, the work cf adjudicating claims 
and issuing certificates had during the 
period from July 1, 1889, faileu far behind 
the sume pericd for the previous fiscal 
year, while from Oct. 20, 1859, to June 30, 
1890, there was an increase in the adjudi- 
cation of claims and the issuing of certifi- 
cates greatly in excess of the same period 
of the preceding fiscal year. This is shown 
by the following statement of work done: 
Total number of certificates issued, year 
ended June 30, 1800, 151,658; total number 
of certificates issued year ended Jnne 30, 
1889, (145,202; increase in 180 over 1889, 
6366; total of original certificates issued 
yearended June 30, 1890, 66,637; total of 
original certificates issued year ended 
June 30, 1889, 51,896; increase in 1890 over 
1889, 14,741. 

J respectfally invite your attention to 
the great difference in amount between 
the rate of $30 a month granted by the 
act of March 3, 1583, to peusioners who 
are so disabled as to be incapacitated for 
performing any manual labor and the rate 
of $72 per month by the act of March 4, 
1890, to pensioners who require the regular 
aid and attendance of auother person. 
‘There are many claimants whore entirely 
incapacitated for performing manual 
labor, and who periodically require the aid 
aud attendance of other persons, but who 
are unable to establish the fact of the re- 
quirement of constant aid and attendance, 
tt occurs to me that it would bea just 
provision to create a higher rate than $30 
a month for cases of this description, and 
I respectfully recommend that a rate of 
£50 a month be created for them. 

Niere have been receiveu in the pension 
office 460, 282%) u Sept. $0. 1890, under 
the disabiliiy peusios ai of June 27, 1890, 
It will be readily dodetstoud that the care 
of such an enormous uuimber ot claims re- 
ceived in so short a time necessarily taxed 
the resources of the office to its fullest ex- 
tent. The work of the mail division ran 
up to more than 32,000 pieces of mall a 
day to be opened, classified and properly 
disposed of. At this writing, Oct. 1, the 
division is handling 10,00) eas a day. 

It is believed that there are probably 100,- 
060 clainis in this office which can be prop- 
erly allowed under the provisions of the 
regulations approved Sept. 26, 1890. The 
uct of June 27, 1890, is the first disabilit 
pension law inthe history of the worl 
which grants to soldiers and sailors pen- 
sions for disabilities, which are not proved 
to have been incurred in the service and in 
line of duty. This law recognizes a higher 
ol ligation of the people to their disabled 
Veterans than was ever formulated in a 
luw belore. Nothing shall be left undone 
by this bureau to give effect to this latest 
expression of the gratitude of the Ameri- 
can people to the soldiers who saved the 


Reports Indicate That the Supply is 
Greatly Diminishing. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.—There is a very 
radical difference of opinion between the 
Canadian and the United States govern- 
ment in the mutter of the possible extinc- 
tion of seal life in Behring Sea. All of 
the evidence which the United States 
government has been able to secure from 
experta, who have recently been seut 
there, is that there is great danger that 
the fur seals will be destroyed. This fact 
is firmly believed by the representatives 
of the government, and is not put out as 
means to secure favorable terms in the 
negotiation pending between the United 
States and Great Brituin with respect to a 
close season for the fur seals, 

There are some commercial indications 
which seem to support the view of the 
government, irrespective of diplomacy or 
politics. Whe treasury department is in- 
formed thatasa matter of fact the fur 
seal supply has been greatly diminished, 
and that the catch has been so much less 
this year within the American jurisdiction 
than it has been before that seals enough 
have not been caught to supply the de- 
mand of the markets. A curious result is 
that the parties who have obtained the 
new contract from the United States gov- 
ernment have done as well as the Alaska 
Commercial nepeny. which had a con- 
tinuing contract for the fur seal fisheries 
on the islands within the jurisdiction of 

The, catch of the Alaska Commercial 
company is saidto have been fully three 
times that of the new United States com- 
pany, and this catch has probably in some 
degree compensated the Alaska company 

| for the loss of the contract and the very 

considerable loss which they were com- 
pelled to sustain by the surrender of their 
plant tothe other company,

Proposed Removal of Duty on Logs Dis 
turbs Lumber Dealers, 

Orrawa, Oct. 7.—It is generally under- 
stood that the Dominion government will 
very shortly announce theabulition of the 
export duty on logs going to the United 
States. Lumbermen say the import of logs 
from the United States to Canada, espe 
cially iu New Brunswick,is larger than the 
outgo, During the last session of parlis- 
ment Sir John Macdonalil stated that if 
the United States reduced the r 
lumber to $1 a thousand, his g 
ment would abolish the export duty 
logs. Now there isa hitch. Congress has 
reduced the duty on pine lumber condi. 
tionally, but those who are in fav 
maintaining theexport duty « 
Sir Jobn is not bound to abolish it, as the 
rates on sprace lumber and other woods 
are the sameas before. The ce 
spruce are opposed to the removal 
on logs. They say that if the 
on logs is reduced their interest 
are pretty large in Quebec and the i 
time provinces, will be sacrific+d to please 
the manufactarers of pine lumber.

Sewerage System For Quincy. 
The sewerage question is again 
directly before the city, and to read the 
bill reported to the City Council Mon- 
day evening one might think work 
would be begun on the construction 
early in the spring. A system is 
urgently needed, but we hope the bill 
will not be rushed through as was the 
report of the Civil Engineer last fall. 

The bill authorizes the city to adopt 
“which have been or may be approved 
by the State Board of Health.” As 
we understand it no plans have yet 
been approved by said board, unless 
it be that proposed in 1888 with an out- 
let at Quincy Point. Concerning the 
newer system of Engincer Blake they 
discouraged that, and refused their ap- 
proval. In plain words they considered 
it extravagant for the city. Yet it is 
under this system that the Council 
evidently hopes to build. A system 
estimated to cost $395,000, with an 
annual outlay (estimated of $9,000 
for pumping stations. Concerning the 
plan for the northern part of the city, 
Engineer Blake did not favor it himself 
but said he merely carried out the vote 
of the Council. 

Our purpose is to call the attention 
of the Council to these facts before 
rushing the bill through, for it looks as 
if it would have very little to say about 
the system after the commissioners are 
appointed, except to make the appropri- 
ation. The bill says, “the exclusive 
authority to construct, lay, maintain, 
repair, alter and operate all sewers and 
drains embraced within such system, 
or otherwise, shall be vested in a board 
of commissioners.” 

a system in accordance plans, 

The Fall Outlook. 

The present season promises to be 
a remarkable one in the way of ad- 
vanced prices for almost everything in 
the food line. Epicurus in the October 
Table Talk says, the ruling prices may 
appear especially high because of the 
exceptionally low prices which have 
prevailed during the last few years. 
The advance ‘cannot be attributed to 
mere speculation, but rather to the 
failure of crops and increased con- 

Alarming reports were recently cir- 
culated in regard to the failure of the 
wheat crop in the Northwest. In con- 
sequence of these reports, prices ad- 
vanced about $1.00 a barrel, with the 
possibility of the advance of an addi- 
tional dollar. The later reports, how- 
ever, are so conflicting that it is diffi- 
cult to tell the actual condition of 
affairs ; but it is likely that the ruling 
price of the best spring-wheat flour, 
such as the Hygeia brand, will be from 
$7.00 to $7.50, with the possibility of 
there being occasional “booms.” 
Nearly all of the cereals, such as oat- 
meal, cracked wheat, hominy, etc., 
have shared in the general advance. 

Coffees have been gradually advanc- 
ing in price, until now they have 
reached an extremely high point. 
Should the steady advance in price 
continue, the consumer must expect 
to pay not less than 40 cents a pound, 
if he wants delicious coffee. The re- 
cent organization of a coffee trust, 
with a large amount of capital, and 
organized for the purpose of manipu- 
lating the market and upholding the 
price of coffce in Brazil, may have had 
something to do with the recent ad- 


there is no relief apparent in the near 

Prices have also been advancing in 
tea. One substantial reason for the 
advance in the prices is the passage of 
the recent Silver Bill, which resulted 
in largely appreciating the value of 
silver. When silver could be pur- 
chased at the former low price, the tea 
cost the importer just that much less ; 
but the advanced price of silver, with 
which the importer pays for tea, makes 
a corresponding advance in the cost of 
tea. This change, however, is not so 
great as in many other food products. 

Canned Fruits. 

At one time Delaware packed the 
large bulk of canned peaches, ranging 
in quality all the way from the unpared 
pie peach, packed in water, to the 
extra quality of White Heath peaches 
of Stetson & Ellison or Richardson & 
Robbins. This yearshe will practically 
contribute nothing except a few odds 
and ends, so that we are forced to de- 
pend upon California to supply the de- 
mand of the United States. The sup- 
ply seems to be large, but it is doubt- 
ful if there will be enough to go around. 
Lemon cling peaches of standard quali- 
ty will be worth 30 cents and extra 
quality 40 cents. Canned apricots will 
share slightly in the general advance 
in prices of canned goods, but can be 
sold at 25 cents for standard quality 
and 35 cents for extra quality. Bartlett 
pears and white cherries will be about 
the same price as peaches, while green 
gage plums and quinces will be sold at 
about the same price as apricots. 
There is a scarcity of all small fruits | 
like the strawberry, blackberry, blue- | 
berry and similar fruits, nearly all of 
which are much higher in price than | 
last season. 

Canned Vi getabl « 

Fortunately the tomato crop promises | 
to be of fair size and of excellent quali- | 
ty. There has been, however, no stock | 
of old tomatoes carried over from last 
year, consequently the demand for the 
new goods will be great and prices 
rule higher. The best grade of toma- 
toes will sell at from 12 cents to 14 
cents per can. 

Last season, and especially at the 
close of the preceding season, southern 
corn retailed at as low a price as 5 
cents and 6 centsacan. These prices | 
were ruinous to the packer, although | 
the standard brands did not suffer this 
decline in price. All of the old stock 
of corn, however, has also now been 
consumed, and the demand for new 
corn is such that the best southern 
corn will retail at about 12 cents this 
year. The greatest interest, however, | 
is shown in Maine corn, which is much 
sweeter, more tender and more flavory 
than that grown in the South. The 
cans also contain a larger quantity of 
corn, en account of its being packed 
solidly, instead of floating in water. 
Canned peas are scarcer than last year | 
and, consequently higher in price. | 
The very small selected peas, like Tiny | 
Tims, which compare favorably with 
the French in size and appearance, but 
which are superior because of the| 
absence of artificial coloring, will sell | 
at about 30 cents. The next size, such | 
as the Lady Washington, for instance, | 
will sell at about 18 cents, and tbe | 
Marrowfat at about 12 cents. String 
beans will be about the same price as 
last year—9 cents or 10 cents a can: 
but the best Lima beans will sell for | 
16 cents or 18 cents. Succotash will | 
probably be 15 cents, and the best 
peeled asparagus will be about 38 cents ; 
the best asparagus tips about 35 cents ; 
and the ordinary at about 25 cents. 

We are surprised to see that the! 
Herald man does not know Josiah | 
Quincy, “the leader and pride of Mas- 
sachuseits statesmen,” or Judge Bum-! 
pus, late District Attorney; for he 
says the latter addressed the City| 
Council Monday evening when it was 
the former. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers | 
to the Patriot who also feel desirous of | 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have | 
been readers of the Patriot for a quarter, | 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Pat-| 
RioT is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they | 
can have both papers. j 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Parrior and the Damy LepcEr 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price,

The President Thoroughly Enjoy 
ing His Western Trip. 


Who are Very Enthusiastic in Their 
Demonstrations—A Short Speoch Made 
at Each Stopping Place. 

DANVILLE, Ills., Oct. 8—The president 
is making his western trip a period of un- 
alloyed pleasure. No official business of 
any character is allowed to intrude itself 
upon his leisure moments, and the pro- 
gram ofthe trip is being adhered to in 
every detail. That this brief period of re- 
laxation is proving beneficial to the presi- 
dent is evident by his cheerful aemeanor 
and the general manner in which he bears 
up under whut would ordinarily be con- 
sidered a tiresome trip. The general wel- 
come which the citizens of his native state 
tendere him av every stop in Indiwna 
was particularly pleasing to the president, 
as he saw in it an indication that his pop- 
ularity was not decreasing among his old- 
time friends aud acquaintances. It was a 
veritable surprise when at the little town 
of Sullivan, nearly half the population of 
the county was found assembled and 
cheering for a sight of the chief executive. 
The president bowed from the rear plat- 
form, but there was loud crying for a 
speech, and he was finally tompelled to 
yield to the popular demand. 

“My friends,” said he, “some of you 
have requested that I would give you a 
little talk. The range of things that I

It was shortly after leaving Vincennes 
and while the train was on the Evar :ville 
and Terre Haute railroud that the most 
running of the trip was done. The dis- 
tance between Vincennes and Sullivan, 
thirty miles, was covered in thirty-two 
minutes. The president and secretary en 
joyed the exciting chase with time quite 
as much as the rest of the party, although 
with not so many expressions of exuber- 

The Principal Event of the Day 

was the reception of the presidential party 

at Terre Haute. A stand has been erected 
and beautifully decorated, and fully 10,000 | 
people assembled to greet the party. As| 
the train approached the city the prolonged | 
whistle of an engine gave the signa! of | 
the president’s arrival, and the refrain 
was at once taken up by every other 
whistle in the city, until one prolonged 
medley drowned all other sound. 

Mayor Frank Daniels welcomed the presi- 
dent tot ’e citvon behalf of the inhabi- 
tants of Torre Haute and concluded by in- 
troducing him to the audience. The 
president said: 

Mr. Mayor, Fellow-Citizens of Indiana, 
Ladies and Gentlemen: I very heartily 
appreciate this large zathering assembled 
to greet me; I very heartily appreciate the 

faces, as well as the spoken words of the 
chief officer of your city have extended to 
me. Ihave known this pretty city for 

its progress and growth. It has always 
been the home of some of my most. cher- 
ished personal friends, and I am glad to 
know that your city is, in an L.creasing | 
degree, prosperons, and your people con- 
tented and happy. I am glad to know

in producing their varied products, and 
that these find a ready market at remun- 
erative price. 

I was told as I approached your city that 
there was not an idle wheel in Terre 
It is very pleasant to know that 
this prosperity is so generally shared by 
all our people. Hopefulness and cheer and 
courage tend to bring and maintain good 
times. We differ widely in our views on | 
Enplic policy, but I trust every one of us 
s devoted to the flag which represents the 
unity and power of ourcountry and to the 
best interests of the people, as we are 
given to sce and understand those in- 
terests, | 

We are in the enjoyment of the most | 
perfect. system of yovernment that has | 
ever been devised for the use of men. We| 
are under fewer restraints, the individual | 


faculties and liberties have wider range 
here than in any other land. Here a sky 
of hope is arched over the head of every 
ambitious, industriousand aspiring young 
man. There are no ecer conditions; 
there are no unneeded legal restrictions. 
Let us continue to cherish these institu- 
tions and to maintain them in their best | 
developement. Let us see that as far as | 
our influence can bring it to pass, they are 
conducted for the general good. 
Secretary Tracy and Congressman Gros- 

| Venor of Obio both spoke briefly, and then 
| the journey was resumed. 

At Danville, Ills., the roar of cannon 
sounded a hearty welcome to the Prairie 

| State and gave evidence of unusual prepar- 

ations for a demonstration. Thousands 
had assembled at the little stand erected | 
by the track. Congressman Joseph G. 
Cannon, who had met the party a few 
miles out, introduced the president ina 
few brief remarks. The president said: 
_My Feilow-Citizens: I regret that the 
time of our arrival and the brief space we 
can give you should make it so incon- 
venient for you who have assembled here 
to greet us. Yet, though the darkness 
shuts out your faces, I cannot omit to 
acknowledge my most heartfelt gratitude 
for the enthusiastic greeting of this large 
assembly of my _ fellow-citizens.. It 
quite worth while, I think, for those | 
charged with great public affairs, now | 
and then to turn aside from the routine of 
— duties to look into the faces of the 

It is well enough that all public officers 
should be reminded that under our repub- 
lican institutions the repository of all 
power, the criginator of all policy, is the 
people of the United States. I have had 
the pleasure of visiting this rich and 
peseperone Section of your great state be- 

ore, and em glad to notice that if the last 

year has not yielded an average return to 
your farms, already the promise of the 
coming year is seen in your well tilled 
fields. Let me thank you again and bid 
you good night.

another multitude of Illinoisians clam- 
ored fora sight of the president. He de-

Report That Davis Admitted His Gailt 
toa Chum. Sa 

Nasava, N. H., Oct. 8.—Herbert 
retts in a police station cell of Nashua, 
practically charged with murder. Al- 
though no documentary charge to that 
effect exists, City Marshai Tolles will en- 
deavor to have him held for the grand 

ury on that charge. 

: Tt has been per about Nashua that 
Davis has admitted to two friends that he 
‘committed the crime, but both denied half- 
heartedly that Davis bad made the remark 
accredited to him. It is known, however, 
that one of these former chums tolda 
number of persons that Davis had _practi- 
cally admitted his guilt, and that he ex- 
pected his neck would stretch for it. 

It is said that Davis and Marshall quar 
reled frequently during their sojourn iu 
this city last Tuesday evening, and that 
Davis threatened his companion several 
times with dire vengenance if he didn’t do 
as he wished him to. Two persons heard 
them making Joud talk while they were 
in the city together, and a well known 
public official gathered so much from 
their conversation on their way home that 
he made a mental note of it at the time, 
and wondered if there would be any seri- 
ous results from the wordy row. 

Davis will not show by flasb of eye or 
flush of cheek any indication of guilt. 
He stares unflinchingly into the eyes of 
an inquirer as long as the latter holds his 
gaze, and then, with half a laugh and an 
ejaculation, bring his face back again 
ready to stare as long as the questioner 

If Davis is a guilty man, he is maintain- 
ing a composure that must sooner of 
later become weakened; while if he is in- 
nocent, he is the victim of circumstantial 
evidence such as criminal officers seldom

BvuENOs AYRES, Oct. 8—A panic was 
caused here by a rumor that a fresh revo 
tution had broker out. The troops were 
talled out and detachments of cavalry 
patrolled the street during the night. The 
ninister of war went to Palermo park, 
where the troops were mustered. Gen. 
Koco, minister of the interior, remained 
In President Pollegrini’s residence until 
¢a.m. The police were rapidly armed 
with Remington rifles and held in readi- 
ness at the central station. The rumor 
caused intense excitement in the theatres 
and clubs. The cause of the alarm was 
a police agent’s report that attempts had 
been made by sergeants to suborn twa 

LATER—The situation is graver than 
was at first supposed. A special train 
was dispatched to Zarate at midnight for 

reinforcements of artillery, which have | 

arrived. Many deputies ard senators 
passed the night at the president’s house, 
while it is stated that the minister of war 
took the president and Minister Roca to 
the Palermo barracks for safety. Mean- 
while, Admiral Bordero prepared the fleet 
for action. The troops at Palermo park 
were reinforced. 

The president 

has just ordered the 

troops to proceed to Santa Catalina and | 
gointocamp. Only one regiment will be | 

left in the city. The fears ofa revolution

As to the Sincerity of Promises 
Made by Mormon Elders. 


Accorded the Comte de Paris by the 
Government—Silver Speculators Radly 
Caught by the Coinage Bill. 

WaAsHINGTON, Oct. 8.—The important 
news telegraphed from Salt Lake City to 
the effect that the Mormon church has 
officially announced that it has aban- 
doned polygamy could not fail to at- 
tract attention in official circles here. The 
proclamation of the president of the Mor- 
mon church is received here with some 
credulity, especially in view of the fact 
that the government has thus been offi- 
cially informed through the commission- 
ers of immigration in New York that 200 
proselytes of the Mormon church, in- 
eluding a large number of young women 
in the charge of Mormon elders, have re- 
cently arrived at New York and started 
for Salt Lake City with the avowed pur- 
pose of entering into polygamous mar- 
riages with members of the Mormon 

In view of the crafty character of the 
leaders of the Mormon church in the past, 
the new departure will be watched very 
closely by the United States officials, and 
certainly the proclamation of the presi- 
dent of the church will not be permitted 
to operate as a discontinuance of suits 
against some of the Mormons which are 
now pending until it shall have been of- 
ficially verified, The presumption is that 
some of the pending cases would be dis- 
missed, provided the government believed 
that the Mormon church is sincere in the 
proclamation which has just been made. 
It is a new departure for the Mormons to 
announce that they intend to abide by the 
luws of the land. 

The delegate from Utah, Mr. Caine, who 
has remained here since the adjournment 
of congress, said last Saturday to the sec- 
retary of the interior that the statement 
contained in the report of the governor of 
the territory to the effect that Mormon 
polygamy is still practiced is incorrect. 
Secretary Noble, referring to this state- 
ment, said that it would be necessary 
te await official information before any 
action was taken. It is very evident that 
the administration will require something 
more than the resolution of some of the 
elders of the Mormon church and a verbal 
declaration of the Mormon delegate in 
congress that the Mormon church has 
abandoned the practice of polygamy, and 
thus surrender its fundumental tenet, be- 
fore any action looking to the pardon of 
the pending convicted persons shall be 

The Mormon church has not always 

acted in sincerity in its relations with the | 

United States government, and the Mor- 

monscannot be surprised if the United | 
States officials shall require affirmative | 

proof of the alleged new revelation which 
the Mormon elders have received. 

Senator Hoar is of the opinion that the! 

change of front on the partof the Mormon 
elders was due to the presence of the Gen- 
tiles from within and the law of Congress 
from without. 


No Official Recognition Given Him by 
the Federal Government. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8—The Comte de 

Paris and his party arrived here 
from Philadelphia and were met 
at the station by Gen. Schofield 

and his aides and escorted to the Arling- 
ton hotel, where luncheon was served. 
The comte and his son thencalled on Gen. 
Schofield at the war department, after 
which the comte went out unattended for 
a stroll, to find the place where he formerly 
lived and to see the changes that have 
been wrought since then. Last evening 
the count and his party were the guests 
of Gen. Schofield ata Cinner given at the 
Metropolitan club. 

There was no representative of the gov- 
ernment at the station to meet the count 
upon his arrival, as would have been the 
case in the event that the government had 
inteaded to extend any recegnition to a 
foreign guest. In that event a represen- 
tative at the state department would have 
waited upon the guest on his arrival in 
New York, and would have escorted him 
to Washington. Failing in that a state 
department official, under instructions, 
would have awaited the Count of Paris at 
the railway station. Thé fact that this 
was not done is of itself conclusive proof 
that the government of the United States 
has not given him any official recognition. 

Already there isa report that the offi- 
cials of the French nation are disposed to 
think that the words with which Collector 
Erhardt welcomed the Count of Paris to 
New York are legitimate grounds for dip- 
lomatic complaint. Collector Erhardt is 
reported to have said this: “I am in- 
structed, sir, by the President of the 
United States and the government at 
Washington to welcome you to these 
shores, and to extend to you every cour- 
tesy in my power.” It is officially denied 
that Collector Erhardt was instructed to 
make any such speech as that to the 
Count of Paris, if he did, 

The instructions which were sent out to 
the collector at the port of New York by 
the treasury department directed him to 
extend to the Comte de Paris “the usual 
courtesies” extended to distinguished for- 
eigners. Under the term “usual courte- 
sies,” as used in the treasury service, is 
meant the passage of without in- 
spection. At all events the United States 
government has disavowed any authority 

such as Collector Erhardt is 
have claimed. ee

M Majesty, manufacturer of seltzer 
water in the Marais, had been to a little 
supper given by some of his friends of 
the Place Royale, and was on his way 
home shivering in the cold air. St 
| Paul's clock struck 2. “How late it is,” 
| muttered the good man, and he quick- 
}ened his step: but the sidewalk was 
| slippery, the streets dark, and, besides, 
in that ancient quarter of Paris, which 
dates from the time when carriages were 
rare, there are numerous turns, angles, 
and hitching posts before the doors for the 
accommodation of horsemen. All these 
impede fast walking, particularly when 
one's legs ure a trifle heavy and one’s 
| sight confused by the toasts of a little 
| Supper. 
At last M. Majesty reached his desti- 
nation. He paused before a large orna- 
mental gate, upon which glistened in the 
| moonlight a newly gilded shield contain- 
ing a restored ancient coat-of-arms, 
which he had adopted as his trademark, 

‘Hotel Ci-Devant de Nesmond. Majesty 
| Jeune, Fabricant D’Ean de Seltz.” On 
all the siphons of the establishment, on 
| all the note blanks and on letter heads 


| the venerable arms of the Nesmonds 
| thns spread ont and shone 
Within the gate was the court yard— 
an Immense court yard, airy and light— 
| which, when thrown open during the 
day, flooded the whole street with brill- 
iancy At the extremity of the court 
| yard stood a vast building of great an- 
tiquity, with embellished and ornament- 
ed black walls. with balconies of round- 
ed iron and st ne balconies with pilas- 
ters, with very lofty and tremendons 
windows, surmounted by pediments and 
capitals, which arose in the topmost sto- 
ries like so many little roofsin the roof, 
and lastly, upon the summit of all, 
amid the slutes, with the round and 
| coquettish dormer windows of the man- 
| surds enframed with garlands like mir- 
|rors. Added to this were immense stone 
steps. eaten and turned green by the 
ruin, a meager vine clinging to the walls 
us black and twisted as the rope which 
hung from the pulley away up toward 
the garret. and a pronounced air of age 
and sadness. Such was the former hotel 
of Nesmond. 

In broad day the aspect of the mansion 
| was altogether different. The words 
|*connting house,” “warerooms,” “‘en- 

trance to the workshops,” shone out 
| everywhere in gold letters upon the old 
walls. filling them with life—rejuvenat- 
ing them. The trucks from the railroads 
shook the portals, and the clerks came 
to the steps with their pens behind their 
|eurs to receive the merchandise. The 
court yard was encumbered with boxes, 
with baskets, with straw and with bag- 
ging. In short, the place had all the 
look of a manufactory. Butat night, in 
the deep silence, beneath the winter 
moon, which, amid the disorder of com- 
plicated roofs, cast and intermingled 
| shadows, the ancient residence of the 
| Nesmonds resumed its lordly appear- 
ance. The balconies were covered with 
lace, the court of honor grew larger and 
the irregularly lighted old stairway be- 
| came full of cathedral like recesses, with 
}empty niches and dimisteps which re- 
sembled altars. 
| The night of which we are speaking, 
especially M. Majesty, thought his estab- 
| lishment had a singularly grand aspect. 
As he passed through the deserted court 

yard the sound of his footsteps made a 

deep) pros B.adty £22222 The Stairway 
seciue i auamense and terribly difficult to 

cud It was the effect of his little 

4 supper, doubtless. Arrived at the first 

landing he stopped to take breath and 
zpproached a window. So much for liv- 
ing in an historical mansion! M. Majes- 
ty was not a poet, oh, no; but, neverthe- 
less, as he gazed out at the beautiful 
| aristocratic court yard, over which the 
| moon spread a sheet of blue light, and 
| at the noble old edifice, which had just 
the air of sleeping, with its roofs stretch- 
jing away beneath their covering of 
snow, he began thinking of the other 
‘What if the Nesmonds should re- 
| turn?” murmured he. 
At that moment the bell rang vio- 
\iently. The gate was thrown open so 
| quickly, so suddenly, that the lamp was 
| extinguished, and for several minutes, 
| in the shadow of the gateway, there was 
a confused sunnd of whispering and of 
vestinents rubbing against each other. 
People disputed, and hastened to enter. 
| There were valets, plenty of valets; 
| coaches with glass windows reflecting 
|the moonbeams, and sedan chairs bal- 
| anced between two torches, which flared 
|in the draught at the gate. In no time 
| the court yard was jammed. But at the 
| foot of the steps the confusion ceased. 
People descended from the vehicles, 
| saluted each other, and went in chatting 
|asif they knew the house. Upon the 
| steps silks rustled and swords clattered. 
Nothing but white headdresses, heavily 
| loaded with powder; nothing but small, 
| shrill voices, some without melody, and 
| light footsteps. All the people seemed 
| to be old, very old. 
| There were dull eyes, dim jewels and 
| ancient brocaded silks shot with chang- 
| ing hues, which the light of the torches 
| caused to shine with asoft luster, and 

| above all floated a tiny cloud of powder, 
| which mounted from the curled head- 
| dresses at each courtly bow, a trifle

stairways until even the dormer windows 
of the mansards had their sparks of fete 
and life. The entire Hotel of Nesmond 
was illuminated as if the setting sun 
had flooded it with its brilliancy. 

“Great Jove! they'll burn the 
Gown!” cried M. Majesty. And, recov- 
ering from his stupor, he strove to shake 
the heaviness out of his legs and de- 
scended quickly to thecourt yard, where 
the servants had just kindled a rousing 
fire. M. Majesty approached and re- 
monstrated with them. The servants 
made no reply, and continued to talk in 
‘ow tones among themselves without the 
east vupor escaping from their lips in 
she icy gloom of the night. M. Majesty 
was unezsy. bnt one thing reassured 
him, and that was that this great fire 
which flamed so high and so steadily 
was a most singular fire—a flame devoid 
of heat which sparkled but did not burn. 
His fears having been tranquilized, the 
good man descended the steps and en- 
tered his warerooms. 

These warerooms, which were on the 
ground floor, must formerly have been 
magnificent reception salons. Particles 
of tnrmished gold yet glittered at all 
the angles. Mythological paintings 
adorned the ceiling, surrounded the mir- 
Tors and floated over the doors in vague 
colors, somewhat soiled, like souvenirs 
of departed years. Unfortunately there 
were neither curtains nor furniture. 
Nothing but baskets, great boxes filled 
with siphons, with pewter heads, and 
the dried branches of an old lilac 
bush which still hung in inky black- 
ness behind the windows. M. Ma- 
jesty on entering found his ware- 
rooms full of light and company. He 
bowed politely, but nobody paid the 
least attention tohim. The women, in 
their satin cloaks, on the arms of their 
cavaliers, continued their ceremonial 
affectations. They promenaded, chatted 
and separated. Truly, all the old mar- 
quises seemed to be perfectly at home. 
A little figure paused, all in a tremble, 
in front of a painted wall. “That’s me 
exactly! Look at my portrait!” and she 
gazed smilingly upon 2 Diana on a panel, 
slender and pink, with a crescent on her 

“Nesmond, do come here and look at 
your arms!” And everybody laughed as 
they saw the arms of the Nesmonds 
stamped upon some bagging with the 
name of Majesty underneath. 

“Ah! ha! Majesty! They still have 
majesties then in France?" And there 
were endless gayeties. little fife like 
bursts of laughter. uplifted fingers and 
affected speeches. 

Suddenly some one cried out: “Here's 
champagne! Here's champagne!” 

“No, it isn’t!” 

“Yes, it is—it’s champagne! Come, 
countess, let’s haye a bumper.” 

It was M. Majesty's seltzer water they 
had mistaken for champagne. They 
found it « trifle flat, but they drank it 
all the same, and as these poor ghosts 
were not strong in the head little by lit- 
tle the weak seltzer water animated 
them, excited them and put themina 
frame of mind for dancing. 

Minuets were organized. Four good 
violins that Nesmond had bronght in 
his train begun one of Ramean’s airs, 
simple and melancholy in its vivacity. 
It was a sight tosee all these old women 
turn and salnte their partners gravely, 
keeping time with the music. Their at- 
tire seemed to grow young again, xnd so 
did the gold embroidered waistcoats, 
the brocaded coats and the shoes with 
diamond buckles. The panels them- 
selves appeared to revive on hearing the 
ancieut melodies. The old mirror, in- 
closed in the wall for 200 years, recog- 
nized them also, and scratched as it was 
and blackened at the corners lighted up 
softly and sent back to the dancers their 
images somewhat dimly, as if melted by 
regret by all these elegancies. M. 
Majesty felt himself out of place. He 
got behind a box and looked on. 

Little by little, however, the day 
broke. Through the glass doors of the 
warerooms the good man saw the court 
yard grow lighter, then the tops of the 
windows, then all one side of the salon. 
As the brightness increased the figures 

1 were confounded together. 
Majesty saw only two violinists 
lingering in a corner.and evaporating as 
the light touched them. In the court 
yard he could still see, but very vaguely, 
the shape of a sedan chair, a powdered 
head adorned with emeralds, and the 
last sparks of a torch thrown by the 
servants upon the flagstones, which min- 
gled with the light of the wheel lanterns 
of a truck at that instant coming through 
the open gate with a tremendous clatter.

The Latitude of a Place. 

That the latitude of a place is nos con- 
stant has long been suspected, but it was 
only at the endof 1889 that systematic 
observations, carried out at some of the 
observatories of Central Europe, clearly 
established the fact by eliminating all 
chances of error in instruments and ob- 
servers. Professor Helmert reported in 
No. 2,963 of the Astronomische Na- 
chrichten that the latitudes of Berlin 
and Potsdam, which had shown no per- 
ceptible variation during the first six 
months of 1889,in the third quarter of 
that year increased at first and then 
diminished, the movement continuing 

agreeing to within one-tenth of asecond. 
According to The Scottish Geographical 

ine the subject is to be discussed 
at the meeting of the commission for in- 
ternational geodesy, to be held in Frei- 
burg, when, it is to be hoped, arrange- 
ments will be made for a strict examina- 
tion of this phenomenon. 

Bill Moore, a farmer of Atchison, 
Kan., wanted to dig a well, so he plowed 
a lot of land and planted it in oats. Every 
day he watched the oats, observing the 
spots that showed the greatest moisture. 
Finally he selected a spot and sank a 
well At twenty-four feet he had a fine 
stream of water. It is said to be the 
best well in the county. ae

but we hope such omissions in the future 
will be few. Tomorrow the B's will be 

At this time we would say that the 
publication is not an official one. A 
few errors in figures have crept into the 
lists printed, not enough to impair the 
value of the same, but which have been 
unpleasant to the Assessors. But it is 
almost impossible to get every figure cor- 
rect, as the Assessors well know themselves. 
The books are large and cumbersome and 
the figures not compact. Perhaps we 
have not been careful enough. We shall 
endeavor to do a little better in the future. 

Before berating the Assessors it might be 
well for the taxpayers to see that no errors 
haye been made in the printing. The 
proof is easy, for with the tax and rate 
given it is very easy to find the valuation, 
bearing in mind that the poll tax is in- 
cluded in the total tax; or with the rate 
and valuation given, it is easy to figure 
what the total tax should be.

Citizens and Soldiers Enjoy War-Time 
Scenes at Springfield. 

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Oct. 8.—The Second 
regiment mustered over 700 men for its 
field day in Chicopee and this city yester- 
day. The troops were massed at Chicopee 
Junction by 10 o’elock, but the rain de- 
layed the start tillnoon. Then the regi- 
ment marched as through an enemy’s 
country, two companies being detailed to 
harass it from the front and rear. A sham 
battle was fought in a corn field and pine 
grove a mile outside of Chicopee, and then 
the column took up its march for Spring- 
field. A halt was made for rations at 
Advent camp-ground, and the regiment 
marched to the city without further 

The progress of the marching column 
through Main street of this city was made 
thrilling and spectacular in its effect by 
the mimic warfare of citizens stationed in 
the open windows of business blocks along 
the route. Showers of snapping fire 
crackers wereexploded among the soldiers 
and quantities of pasteboard bricks were 
thrown at their heads. The troops an- 
swered these assaults by volleys of blank 
cartridges, and attwo points along the 
route of march were mafe to meet the as- 
saults of organized mobs, armed with 
Springfield rifles and blapk cartridges. 
The dress parade at Outing park was 
abandoned on account of the delay caused 
by the storm, but the column was re- 
viewed at Court square by a number of 
members of the city government, Adjt.

Letter of Congressman Morse Ae- 
cepting His Renomination. 


Any Tariff Bill That We Could Pass in a 
Country so Vast as Ours, With so many 
Conflicting Interests Must to Some Ex- 
tent be in the Nature of a Compromise. 

Hon. Elijah A. Morse writes the follow- 
ing letter accepting his renomination to 
Congress in the Second District: 

CANTON, Mass., Oct. 6, 1890. 

George A Washburn, Esq., President; 
Joseph A. Cushing, Esq., Secretary, 
Republican Congressional Convention, 
Second Massachusetts District : 
GENTLEMEN:—I have the honor to 

acknowledge the receipt of yours of Sept. 

30 notifying me of my nnanimous renomi- 

nation as Republican candidate for Rep- 

resentative of the Second District. 

Ialso note what you say about the har- 
mony and enthusiasm of the convention 
and your prediction of my certain re- 
election. Ineed not assure you that the 
action of the convention and the expressions 
of your letter are a source of great pleasure 
and satisfaction to me. 

I entered upon my duties as a Representa- 
tive under embarrassing conditions. I 
am a business map. My predecessor, a 
learned and distinguished lawyer, had the 
prestige of having been thrice elected 
Governor of the Commonwealth, and 
should I use my best endeavors I could 
hardly hope to make his place good. All 
that I claim for myself is that I have been 
constantly at my post during the session of 
the Fifty-first Congress, that I have given 
diligent and careful attention to my duties, 
that I have done my best to meet the wants 
of my constituents and to defend the wage 
earners and great business manufacturing 
interests of the Second District. I have 
also used my best endeavors to redeem the 
written and unwritten promises of the 
people in the hour of the nation’s deadly 
peril to the soldiers of the Second District 
and the Commonwealth, who periled their 
allin her defence ; and I repeat that the 

| unanimity of the convention, accompanied 
by the resolutions of the various caucuses, 

and the many very complimentary letters 
from prominent citizens in every section of 
the district, and of every party, have been 
very pleasing to me. 

The great question affecting the business 
interests of our district and the State in 
the Fifty-first Congress has been the re- 
duction of the revenue and 

Revision of the Tariff, 
which the Republican party in its platform 
promised to do on the line of protection to 
American industries and American labor. 
That promise the Fifty-first Congress has 

Of course, any tariff bill that we could 
pass in a country so vast as ours, with 
so many conflicting interests, must to some 
extent be in the uature of a compromise. 
What is considered raw material in one 
section is considered the manufactured 
product in the other. 

New England must make concessions to 
the West and South, and the West must 
make concessions to the East. The West 
demanded duty on hides, which would 

shoe interests of Brockton and other large 
markets of the Second District, our pro- 
duction of hides in this country being a 
mere fraction of our consumption. The 
New England men carried their point and 
succeeded in getting hides on the free list. 

The stone workers of the city of Quincy 
were being brought into competition with 
the poorly paid workers of Europe. The 
doubling of duty on finished granite can- 
not fail to be of great benefit to the manu- 
facturers and workmen of Quincy. This 
was also stoutly opposed by Western and 
Southern members. The great jewerly 
business of Attleboro*and North Attleboro 
cannot fail to be benefited by the doubling 
of the duty on their product. The con- 
tinuation of a protective duty on the 
products of the great manufacturing houses 
of Taunton will, I trust, bring increased 
prosperity to that city. 

The present production of sugar in this 
country is and can be only a small fraction 
of our consumption, and the placing of 

Sugar upon the Free List 

removes what in this case isa tax on the 
American people of $50,000,000 per year, 
anda yearly per capita tax of $125 for 
every map, woman and child in Massa- 
chusetts, while there were some other items 

in the McKinley bill in which we were 
not as successful. We should have had a 
higher duty on binding twine and a lower 
duty on boiler shearings, and a free scrap 
iron ; and [ hope the day is not far distant 
when we may have reciprocity with our 
Canadian neighbors, in which case I believe 
we would sell them more than we would 
buy, inciuding coal and iron, owing to the 
poor quality of the Canadian coal and 
iron. I hope to see the items referred to 
above corrected by a future Congrress, 

The McKinley Tariff bill, as a whole, is 
satisfactory, is undoubtedly in the main 
permanent, and cannot fail to bring great 
and increasing prosperity to the whole 

I am pleased also toadvise my constitu- 
ents that the appropriations of the Fifty- 
first Congress for the improvements of the 
rivers and harbors and other great public 
works in our district were li and 
cannot fail to bring great benefit to the 
places interested. 

Finally, if the people shall see fit to 
ratify your nomination at the polls, of 
which you seem to be assured, I renew the 
promise made two years ago to serve all the 
poopie of the district with such ability as 

Your obedient servant, 
Exisau A. Morse.

Visiting the Library. 

A visit to the partially completed Con- 
gressional library is quite amusing. Not 
that there is much that is interesting in 
the shapeless tangle of brick and stone, 
but it is the instructions visitors get at 
the gate that are amusing. When one 
goes in at the wide gate through the 
board fence on the East Capitol street 
side he is not apt to notice a little old 
man that sits in alittle house just inside 
the gate. If one doesn't notice hinn the old 
watchman will stop one with an impera- 
tive “Hey, there!” One stops, and in 
the richest sort of an Irish brogue is 
told: ‘““Now, yez can go in and look 
about as much as yez loike. But there 
is some things yez mustn’t do. Don't 
talk to any of the men. Don't go on top 
of the walls, and don’t go inside of the 
building anywhere. An’ don’t yez ask 
any of the men questions. Moind that, 
now, and yez can see all ye plase.”— 
Washington Post. 

He Must Get Married. 

Attorney Arthur S. Fisher, of Rock- 
ford, is a candidate for matrimonial 
honors. He is a member of the Owl 
club, a society of Ogle county bachelors, 
and his doom was sealed at its picnic on 
Aug. 15. During the day came the elec- 
tion of officers. Among the officers is 
one called “‘the $10,000 beauty of the 
club,” and he who is elected to this 
office must marry within a year and 
withdraw from the soviety. The charm 
has never failed to work yet, and every 
man who has been elected to the office 
has been married within the year. Every 
other officer is elected by acclamation, 
but this one is elected by solemn and 
sacred ballot. When the ballots were 
counted it was found that Mr. Fisher 
was the doomed man. The good natured 
attorney made a pleasant speech, and 
tried in his clever way to turn it off asa 
joke. The sequel has never failed to oc- 
cur.—Chicago [erald. 

Western Intellectual Impulses. 

One of the results of the Chautauqua 
assemblies, which have a tendency to 
awaken unnatural activity of the brain 
and an abnormal thirst for knowledge, 
was shownrecently. The 4-year-old son 
of one of the officers of the Long Pine 
assembly burned his father’s barn in or- 
der to see what sort of a bonfire it would 
make. He also wished to see whether a 
setting hen would preserve her presence 
of mind when surrounded by flames, and 
his observations will doubtless be a val- 
uable contribution to science, although 
the experiment was necessarily expen- 
sive to the parent of the young Chautau- 
quan. Thesetting hen deserted her pros- 
pective family and saved her life, a fact 
which proves thatin the disposition of 
the hen the instinct of self preservation 
overbalances maternal devotion. There 
is no doubt Chautauqua assemblies have 
given a great intellectual impulse to the 
mane generation.—Omaha World-Her- 

Cranberries Are High 

The year’s crop of cranberries is esti- 
mated at 750,000 bushels. Prices range 
from $2 at the beginning of the season 
to $3 or $4 at its close. Last year the 
price ran up to $6, and this year, owing to 
the scarcity of other fruits, cranberries 
will probably start at $7 per barrel. 
The Cape Cod crop is later than usual 
this year, while that of New J ersey is in 
advance. Contrary to the usual custom 
New Jersey berries will probably be the 
first in the market.—Cor. Philadelphia 

Why She Was Slow. 

An examination of the hull of the 
new steel cruiser Charleston, recently 
returned from Honolulu, shows a re- 
markable growth of weeds and barnacles 
on her steel bottom, says a Washington 
special accounting for the fact that she 
made only about seven knots an hour on 
her trip across the Pacific. She has been 
in commission just about four months, 
and her speed has been reduced from an 
average of nineteen knots on her trial 
run to the figure named, while her coal 
consumption has remained just as high. 

Among the veterans who atten 

recent Grand Army reunion at a 
was John F. Chase, of Augusta, Me. 

who received forty-eight wounds by the 
explosion of a shell at Gettysburg. His 
right arm was blown off, and his left 
eye torn from its socket, and he lay on 
the field two days before it was discoy- 
ered that he was alive. He is now in 
comfortable health, and Teceives a -

WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 7.—The Dupont 
powder works on the Brandywine, abont 
three miles from here, blew up yesterday 
afternoon, killing at least twelve persons 
and badly injuring a number more. Thg 
whole section of the works, known as the 
“upper yard” is a complete wreck. (ne of 
the magazines went off first, and the ro}]- 
ing avd drying mills near by, set off by 
the concussion, followed ia rapid succes. 
sion. There were at least seven distinet 
successive explosions. Every dwelling iy 
the neighborhood is wrecked or unroofed, 
and buildings within a radius of half, 
mile are more or less damaged. 

Following is a partial list of the killed: 

Martin Dolan, James Dolan, William 
McGarvey, John Hartygan, William Dep- 
nison, John Dietz, Thomas Hurlike, Pat- 
rick Dougherty, William Green, John 
Hurlike, John Newall anda woman named 
Rose Dougherty. Several others are miss- 

The more seriously injured, so far as 
learned, are: Daniel Harkins, William 
Logan (will probably die), Annie and 
Marie Dolan, James Ward, Hugh Ferry, 
John McDowell, Mrs. William McDowell 
and her 2-year-old daughter and Lydia 

The Dupont powder mills extend along 
the Brandywine, chiefly on the west bank 
and close to the water, for about two 
miles. They are divided intothe “upper,” 
“Hagley,’’ and “lower” yards. The first 
is some three miles and the last five miles 
from Wilmington. At the “upper” was 
the office and business headquarters of the 

At the “upper yard’’ are some fifty 
houses which were jahabited by the em- 
ployes, and they are all wrecked. The 
force of the concussion even broke the 
windows in some parts of Wilmington, 
four or five miles away. The shock was 
distinctly felt thirty miles away. The 
office of the Dupont company is a com- 
plete wreck and six mills are in ruins. 
Several members of the Dupont firm were 
injured by falling walls and broken glass, 
but none of them seriously. Among the 
injured are: Eugene Dupont, the head of 
the firm, Francis G. Dupont and Charles 
L Dupont. They and several clerks in the 
office were cut by fragments of broken 
glass, but none of them seriously. 
== The dead were all employes of the com- 
pany and were in and about the mills that 
exploded. Several workmen are missing 
and are believed to have been blown into 
fragments. The wounded received their 
injuries among the walls of their falling 
houses and by broken glass and flying 
debris. Had there not been a general and 
instant exodus from their houses at the 
first shock, the death list would have been 
much heavi:r, as many would have been 
crushed in the ruins of their dwelling. 

The F'rst Explosion 
occurred in one of the packing mills 
where a workman named Gran was recei¥- 
ing a ofjcan hexagonal powder to be shipped 
for the use of the United States govern: 

In some way a spark communicated to 
the can and it blew up. Instantly the 
packing mill exploded and the other mills 
in the upper yards, seven or eight in num- 
ber, followed at intervals of less than one 
second. All these, except one, were 
“rolling mills,” in which the ingredients 
of gunpowder are pulverized by the action 
of vertical rollers of stone turning slowly 
around a central post. The whole ms 
chinery is driven by water power. The 
odd one was a “mixing mill.” 

Immediately after the explosion a large 
building known as the “refnery,” located 
near the center of the village, took fire. It 
was a matter of life and death to the 
whole population that this fire should be 
extinguished before it communicated 
with the powder the building contained. 
Taking their lives in their hands, the Dn- 
pont fire brigade fought the flames, which 
had caught the roof. It was touch and g° 
between success and destruction, but the 
firemen won. Had the roof fallen in it 
is doubtful if any man, woman or child in 
the vicinity would have escaped death or 
serious injury. 

About fifty families are rendered home- 
less by the disaster. The injured are be 
ing gathered into the hospital buildiog 
appertaining to the works, and are r& 
ceiving such surgical and other aid as they 
need. There will be no more chance of 
getting news from there at present and, in 
fact, owing to the rocky and wooded cliar- 
acter of the locality, but little can be done 
in the way of searching for the missivg 
or ascertaining the extent of the damagt 
done to property until later. 

It is estimated that the loss will react 
$500," ani! that fully ten tons of powder 
were explodet. Tue scene at and about 
the mills is one of startling dcvastatiod 
The bodies of only a few of the killed have 
been found.

And Mr. Eaton of Quincy was declared

motion of Mr. Easton made unanimous. 

The choice of a member of the State! 
Centra! Committee resulted in the unani- 
aha! reelection of Josiah Quincy of 
Quincy. Mr. George R. R. Rivers of Mil- 
ton was elected chairman of the Senatorial

William N. Eaton, the nominee for 
Senator, is well known in Quincy, having 
often been elected to the office of Select- 
man. He has represented the Fifth Nor- 
folx District in the House two years, and 
his popularity will make the election in 
the district a close one.

Dancing School. 

An excellent dancing schoo) was opened 
last evening at Faxon hall, by Mr. J. Jay 
Banta, the popular teacher from Boston. 
Notwithstanding the dark and disagreeable 
|evening a large number were present to 
learn of the professor the art of being 
graceful upon the public floor. There 
were more gentlemen than ladies, but it is 
hoped at the meeting on Wednesday even- 
ing next to see more of the fair sex; and a 
class of not less than fifty. Mr. Banta 
intends to continue his school in Quincy 

every Wednesday evening. Let all who} 
desire to join be present next Wednesday | 
as it is much better to commence at the 
| Congressional Convention. 

The Democratic convention for the 
Second Congressional district will be 
holden in this city at 2 o'clock this after- 
noon. An extra edition of the Dany

The Convention Not Unanimous in 
Postponing Nomination. 

The Democratic convention for the 

Second Congressional District. was held 
this afternoon in Robertson hall, Quincy. 

Two o'clock was the time designated in Cc. 

the call, but it was sometime after this 
before the convention was called to order. 

W. G. A. Pattee, Esq., of Quincy, called 
the convention to order, and on motion of 
D. M. Easton, of Weymouth, was elected 
temporary chairman, George O. Wentworth 
of Stoughton was chosen secretary. 

On motion of L. S. Drake, of Easton, 
the chair appointed Mr. Drake, I. M. Jack- 
son of Plymonth and James L. Lincoln of 
Weymouth, a committee on credentials, 
who reported 25 cities and towns represent- 
ed by 98 delegates. 

The temporary organization was made 
permanent. Mr. Pattee was sure the con- 
vention would name a candidate who 
would represent and not misrepresent the 
district; some gentleman who would work 
for the interests of the manufacturer of 

south-eastern Massachusetts. The iron QUINCY + 

industry had been driven out by action of 
the Republicans. The Democratic party 
had three reforms before it—civil service 
reform, tariff reform, and ballot reform. 

: Bushrod Morse moved that a committee 
of three be appointed to request Dr. 
Everett's attendance. The chair appointed 
W. T. Davis of Plymouth, D. M. Eaton of 
Weymouth andl. N. Linfield of Stough- 

Josiah Quincy said the cunvention was 
at sea as toa candidate, and moved that 
the nomination be left to the district com- 
mittee with full power. 

Bushrod Morse of Canton said the com- 
mittee was too small to be a representative 
one, consisting only of nine. 

r. Quincy said a new district commit- 
tee was to be chosen and lt might be en- 
larged to include one from each city or 

Mr. Morse endorsed Mr. Quincy's 

The motion was put and the chair was 
in doubt as to the result. By a hand vote 
of 19 to 14 it was carried. 

It was voted to enlarge the district com- 
mittee to include one from exch town and 

ward of a city. 

The committee reported Dr. Everett out 
of town, and the convention adjourned.

Cost of the Sewerage System. 

Land are beginning to 
squirm a little at the prospect of paying 
£400,000 or more for a _ sewerage 
system, one-third by taxes and two- 
thirds by assessment. Under the Clarke 
with the outfall at Quincy | 
Poiut it was proposed that the assess- 
ments should be one dollar per front 
foot of the abutters on street benefitted. | 



The cost of that system was insignifi- | 
cunt compared with the Blake system | 
now under consideration, therefore it 
is reasonable to suppose the assess- 
ments will be much heavier under the 

The arises, is not the 
system much more expensive than is 
necessary. The Clarke system may be 
inadequate because it does not cover 
the whole city. But we are still of the 
opinion that Quincy Point is the place 
at present for the ontlet, and the State 
Board of Health has said that for many 
years it would serve “ without predu- 
dice to its sanitary condition. 

The bill drawn proposes that the act 
shall take effect upon iis passage. 
How would it do to submit it to the 
vote of the people. This should cer- 
tainly be done if the City Council does 
not take into consideration, more than 
it has, the cost.

Quincy Village Improvement Society

elsewhere in this issue neglects to give

the movement and to whom much of

writer of the report, the secretary, 
Mrs. Faxon, to whom Quincy is in- 
debted for many improvements. 

the success is due. 

It would seem as though Wollaston 
critics were on the lookout for every 
little out in the fire department and 
giving them publicity just to embarass | 
Chief Ripley. Itisa good thing for 
the city to have its officials watched, and 
improvements suggested to them, but} 
let us not persecute them. 


The experiment of lighting a part of | 
the city by incandescent rather than 
are lights is well worth trying. Wol-| 
laston believes it will like the system | 
better. Perhaps the whole city would. 

Patriot and Ledger. 

There are a large number of subscribers 
to the Parrior who also feel desirous of 
having the news daily, but do not think 
they can afford to take both. They have | 
been readers of the Parriot for a quarter, 
or perhaps half, a century; and the Pat- 
rior is one of the fixed articles of the 
household which they do not like to part 

For this reason we propose to meet these 
old subscribers at least half way, if not 
more, by reducing the price so that they 
can have both papers. 

We will furnish, after this date, the 
Quincy Parrior and the Dau.y LepGER 
one year for $6, in advance. 

We make this large reduction for two 
reasons; first, to allow all who wish both 
papers to have them at a reasonable price, 
and second, to induce subscribers to pay in 
advance, as It is very expensive to collect 
newpaper bills.

Important Decision ‘Touching Upon Con- 
necticut’s New Ballot Law. 

HARTFORD, Oct. 9.—The supreme court 
has decided the famous election case of 
Talcott, Democrat, vs. Philbrick, Repub- 
lican, for position of alderman in the 
Seventh ward. Itisthe first case made 
under the new secret ballot law. The 
court sustains the findings of the lower 
court, and seats Talcott and unseats Phil- 
brick. The latter owed his election ‘to 
several ballots headed Citizens’ ticket, 
which contained names of Republican 
candidates, and were prepared by the 
chairman of the Republican town com- 
mittee. The law says the ballot can only 
have thenameof the party issuing it. 
The court finds there was no Citizens’ 
party, and that therefore the tickets are 
void. It is necessary to give notice of in- 
tention to contest within sixty days after 
an election. Charles R. Chapman, the 
Democratic candidate for mayor, declined 
to make acontest. Hai he made it, this 
decision would have overturned the city 
government and given him the mayoralty, 
as the so-called Citizens’ tickets were cir- 
culated by the Republican committee all 
over the city. 


Only Son of Ex-Governor Sprague of

Chase, late chief justice of the supreme 
court of the United States, and only son 
of ex-Governor Sprague of Rhode Island, 
was found dead in his room. Sprague ar- 
rived in Seattle two weeks ago to take 
charge of the engraving department of a 
morning journal. He deserted his work 
Friday night and had not been heard of 
till Tuesday afternoon, whe= the door of

aud a half-filled bottle of chloroform on |

acloth with chloroform, placed a patcn } 
of newspaper over that and then tied the 
pillow around his head. He had been 
dead about twenty hours when found. His | 
father, with whom he seemed on unpleas- 
ant terms, has been notified. He lefta

Second congressional district, to filla va-

He is conducting his canvass for re-clec- |

GALEsBURG, Ils., Oct. 9.—The grand 
event here was the rennion at Galesburg, 
of the First brigade, Third division, 
Twentieth Army corps, the former com- 
mand of Gen. Harrison. Theoccassion 
was a gathering not only of the old veter- 
ans who were formerly associated with the 
president, but of Grand Army men from 
all sections of the west. Excursions from 
all the principal cities within a radius of 
$00 miles added to the assemblage, and it 
was estimated that the audience which 
greeted President Harrison at Galesburg, 
was not less than 25,000. At the depot the 
presidential party was met by the mayor 
of the city, the econncil ‘and the army of 
veterans and escorted to the hotel, where, 
in an hours’ reception, distinguished citt- 
zens from all parts of the state and west 
greeted the president. The decorations 
throughout the city were profuse and 

The president responde’ to the mayor’s 
address of weleome as follows: 

Mr. Mayor and Fellow Citizens: 

The magnitude of this creat assemblage 
to-day fills me with surprise and with con- 
sternation as I am called to make this at- 
tempt to speak to you. I came here to 
meet with the survivors of the old brigade. 
Tcame in the expectation that the day 
would generally be spent in their com- 
panionship and in the exchange of those 
cordial greetings which express the fond- 
ness and-love which we hear to each other. 
One or two T have been able to take by the 
band, and some of them I have seen as 
they marched by the reviewing stand, but 
they seem to have been swallowed up in 
this vast coneonrse of their war enmrades 
and of their fellow citizens of Illinois. T 
hone there may vet be time during the dav 
‘vrhen T shall be able to take each of 
them by the hand and toassure them that 
in these years of separation since the mns- 
ter ont day I have borne them all sacredly 
in my affectionate remembrance. 

T have been vreatly impressed with this 
askemblage to-day in this beautiful city, 
in this prosperous state. Thethought has | 
eccurred to me, and the more T have 
thonght of it, the more sure I am of the 
conclusion, thet nowhere on the face of 
earth except in the United States of 
America, under no other flag that kisses 
anv breeze. conld snch an assemblage as 
this be gathered. Who are these? Look 
into their feces, see the evidences of con- 
tentment, thrift, prosperity, intelligence 
that we read in all these faces. They have 
come from all these homes of village, city 
and farm, and here they are to-day, the 
strength and rock of our security as a na- 
tion, the people who furnished an invinci- 
ble army when its flae wasin danger, the 
people npon whose enlightened conscience 
and God-fearing hearts this country may 
rest with undaunted hope. 

The war was only fought that the law 
might not lose its sanction and its sanc- 
tity. If wehad suffered that loss. dis- 
memberment would have been a lesser 
one. But we taught those who resisted 
law, and we taught the world, that the 
great sentiment of loyalty to our written 
law was so strong in this country that no 
associations, conspiracies or combinations 
should overturn it. Our government will 
not fail to go on in its increasing career 
of develonment, in population. in wealth, 
in intelligence, and in morality, so long 
as we hold up everywhere in the locality, 
in the community, and in the nation, this 
great thought—every man shall keep the 
law which secures him in his own rights 
and shall not trample upon the richts of 
another. Let us divide unon tariff and 
finance, but let there never bea division 
among the American people upon this 
question, that nowhere shall the law be 
overturned in the interest of anybody. 

If it fails of the beneficent purpose 
which should be the object of all law.then 
let the neople despair, but while it is the 
law, let us insist that it shall be obeyed. 
When we turn from that and allow any 
other standard of living to be, 

Where is Our Security? 

If my convenience, if the convenience of a 
class to which Imayv belong is to take the 
pluce of law.where is your security? Where 
is mine when some one else makes con- 
venience more sacred, more powerful than 
the law of the land? I believe to-day that 
the great rock of our security is this 
deeply embedded thought in the American 
heart. It is not here, as in many of our 
Spanish-American countries, which some- 
times give their devotion to a man. for we 
give a devotion to a law, to a constitution, 
toa flag. Soit was that in that hour of 
gloom, when this richest contribution of 
all the gems that Illinois has set in our 
national diadem, Abraham Lincoln, fell | 
in that hour of the confirmation of his 
work,by the hand of an assassin, Garfield, 
who was to meet a like fate, might say to 
the trembling and dismayed people of the 
streets of New York,‘‘Lincoln is dead, but 
— government at Washington still 

T do not look upon such assemblages as 
this without profound emotion. he 
touch me and I believe they teach me, ane 
Tam sure the lessons are wholesome les- 
sons, We have had here to-day this pro- 
cession of veterans, aged and feeble, many 
ofthem. That is a retrospect; that is part 
ofagreat story of the past written in 
glorious letters on a firmament that is 
arene above the world; and in these sweet 
children who have followed we read: the 
future. How sweét it was in the proces- 
sion to-day toseethem bearing in their 
infant hands these same banners that 
those veterans carried amid the shock of 
battle and dying men. I had occasion at 
the centennial celebration of the inaugura- 
tion of Washington in New York, bein 
impressed by the great display of nationa 
colors, to make at the banquet the sugges- 
tionthat the fags should be taken into 
the school houses, and I am glad to know 
that inthatstate there is daily a little 
drill of the children that pays honor to 
the flag. 

Itrust we are all met here to-day as 
loyal, loving American citizens, and over 
allour divisions and difference there is 
this great arch of love and loyalty binding 
us together. And now will you excuse 
me from further speech when I have said 
again that I am profoundly grateful to 
the people of Galesburg and this vicinity 

have so warmly opened their arms to 
welcome me to-day. 

At the close of the president’s speech 
Secretary Tracy was introduced, and 
spoke briefly, thanking the people for the 
magnificent reception and welcome ex- 
tended, and congratulated the people of 
Iilinois on their prosperity. 

Gen. Grosvenor of Ohio and others fol-| 
lowed Mr. Tracy.

and the president proceeded to Knox col-

stone of the new hall was laid. 

Dr. Newton Bateman, president of Knox 
college, pronounced the invocation and 
Professor Milton Comstock read a sketch 
of the origin and growth of the college. 
Professor J. Adams then introduced the

To this it was found imperative te pen 74 
only old veterans and their immedia' 
families, and even then the opera house 
was almost inadequate. President Harri- 
son was escorted from the hotel to the re- 
union by a committee headed by Gen. 
Daniel Dustin. 

The appearance of President Harrison 
on the stage was the eccasion for an out- 
burst ef cheers from the assembled vet- 
erans that make the very walls tremble. 
Gen. Dustin then called the meeting to 
order. After the applause had somewhat 
subsided President Harrison addressed 
the veterans of his old brigade. 

The Brigade Speech. 

After reviewing the hist ory of the bri- 
gade and reciting a number of anecdotes 
associated with that history, President 
Harrison said that forno honor he had 
ever received would he ever exchange the 
honor of having foughtin the war. He 
did not believe there would ever be an- 
other} rebellion. One attempt had dis- 
couraged all others. Continuing, he said: 

A few weeks ago I went from Washing- 
ton te Boston to witness the meeting of 
the Grand Army of the Republic, and 
after I had s' for many hours upon the 
reviewing stand and had seen these old 
veterans, such as are here, marching by 
under the national colors, then there came 
along in their footsteps—we very often 
use that as a metaphor, but here it was 
literally true—ten thousand Sons of Vet- 
erans. Some of them were at middle 
almost well on in manhood, 
because not all of you waited un- 
til the war was over to find your 
sweethearts. Some of you had wives, and 
left them and your children to their care 
when your country called you to its ser- 
vice. Inever was so impressed with the 
actual demonstration of the fact that 
there stand in our places young men, just 
such as you were when the last war broke 
out, filled just as you were with devotion 
to the country and ready to step se

Facts for Consideration Presented to His | 
Fellow Countrymen, 

Rome, Oct. 9.—Prime Minister Crispi, 
speaking et a banquet in his honor at 
Florence, said that seductive influences 
were at work to mislead the people by de- 
manding the restoration of unredeemed 
territory under the ensign of patriotism. 
The adoption of irridentism would set the 
whole of Europe against Italy. Shecould 
not seek to implore her rule upon Malta,nor 
insist that Switzerland recognize the prin- 
ciples of herabsolute right of nationality. 
The Austro-German alliance proved that 
this right must be interpreted with mod- 
eration. Irridentism, which might bring 
war in its train, was really directed 
against the triple alliance. The agitators 
did not see the advances which France 
was making toward Austria or that the 
agitation favored the Vatican’s plans for 
a restoration of temporal power, The 
time had arrived to speak frankly, to the 
end that all patriots might openly fight 
against the agitators and shield the nation 
from the danger which menaced it.

Severe on the Militia. 

One of the regular officers who was at

lowing in regard to that camp: ‘I can- 
not refrain from saying that it looks as 
if the state of Pennsylvania paid $165,- 
000 for an inspection and two reviews. 
Beyond that nothing was attempted 
which conld not have been better exe- 
cuted at the armories at home. The 
militiamen have the idea thatif they

and courage are displayed by the aver-

Dickey and McIntosh counties, in North 
Dakota, the crops have failed for several 
seasons from various. causes, and the 
hardy Russians and sturdy Germaus 
who have been holding down claims in 
these localities have had pretty tough 
times. This year the hot winds have 
again cooked the crops, so that there is 
nothing left to harvest, and the poor 
foreigners have been forced to leave their 
farms and look for work in northern 
Wisconsin in order to save their fami- 
lies from starving during the coming 
winter. “But they are not discour- 
aged,” naively remarks a North Dakota}

wet by the shower, but was entirely 
green, having been cut but a few hours. 

People who witnessed the sight were 
reminded of the story of Elijah’s com- 
petitive test of the products of Baal, the

Italy Revived. 


Fature Fees of Those Practicing in Wayy.

About the Comte de Paris. 

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9.—The fact th at 
Baron Fava, who has been the minister 
from Italy to the United States fo; the 
past decade, is about to leave Washingtoy 
on an extended leave of absence is looked 
upon here as proof positive that the State- 
ment, printed some time ayo, to the effect 
that Fava has been recalled is 

Last spring there was a very unpleasant 
sensation published in the papers of Rome 
and Florence and other Italian , 
which set forth with « great deal of cir. 
cumstantial detail that Baron Fava. tp. 
gether with Mr. Riva, the Ltalian consy}. 
veneral in New York, and Senor Seslith- 
Dodo has been engayed in a conspiracy to 
defraud the Italian government on a to- 
bacco contract which had been perfected 
by Fava and Riva for the Italian govern. 

The government has a monopoly of the 
tobacco trade in Italy, and buysa large 
quantity of the weed in the United 
Srates. It is claimed that King Humbert’s 
representative purchased the supply 
needed of Kentucky tobucco at the rate of 
72 francs per quintal, and that they 
charge! up to the government {115 francs 
per quintal. The accounts were suid to 
have been passed by the minister of 
finance, who was subsequently removed 
_ from office. 

Riva went home on a leave of absence. 
and he has not yet returned, although he 
has been gone nearly six months. Now 
Fava is packing up his trunks to get out 
of town, aud it is asserted that his succes- 
| sor has already been appointed. 

Among the other charges brought 
| against Fava at the time was one to the 
| e‘Tect that he had been engaged in selling 
Italian decorations for cash in connection 


tlemen were interested in the padrone sys- 
tem, which has been flourishing to such 
an extent, and which the Italian govern- 
ment is trying to break up in New York

Treasury Department Decision of Much 
Interest to Attorneys. 

W&ASHINGTON, Oct. 9.—A decision is be- 
ing put into shape at the treasury depart- 
ment which will be of considerable interest 
to attorneys having practice there, and 
may make their future fees precarious. It 
is proposed to entirely ignore assignments 
and powers of attorney in paying claims 
which have been passed upon by the depart- 
men. Section 3477 of the revised statutes 
already forbids assignments and powers of 
attorney unless they recite the warrant 
for payment. Theeffect of this is tore 
quire aspecific power of attorney for the 
collection of the warrant after it is made 
out, and no general power of attorney is 
su Sicient. 

The new proposition isto go beyond this, 
aud refuse to recognize powers of attor- 
ney atall. If aclaimant is not here in 
person, he can have his warrant or draft 
mailea to him, can pocket the whole and 
leave the attorney to whistle for his fees. 
The attorney is able, under the existing 
practice, when he collects the mouey due 
the claimant, to deduct the amount of his 
fee according to previous agreement, and 
no attorney can afford to be guilty of any 
crookedness, because it would lead to his 

Th + new system, which is said to have 
bees: adopted upon the suggestion « f First 
Comptroller Matthews, requires 4 posi 
tive act on the part of the claimant 
discharge an obligation which he i 
aptto neglect. There are probav 
names of the most eminent firms 
leading cities of the Union upon t 
of attorneys practising before the 
troliers of the treasury, and this 
cision will make their practice of ad 
ful character.

inmates have been busy getting their 

visib} | furniture out of the way. A member of | 
rner of Hancock and } 

the firm said it was impossible as yet to 

| give any figures of the property loss. A 
| cordon of guards was posted and rigid 
orders issned to exclnde from the powder 
yards all butemployes. Thousands have 
gone out from this city to view the wreck, 
and extra precautions were imperatively 
required to avoid further danger, as con- 
siderable powder was lying about in kegs, 
| CAnISters and even loose. 

One of the strange features of the dis- 
aster is that a mill which escaped destruc 
tion had the powder contained therein 
blown ontover the adjacent ground by 
the concussion without igniting. Another 
strange sight, vouched forby one of the 
workmen, was the explosion of a keg of 
powder by contact on the surface of the 
water of the reservoir near by. He claims 
to have seen the kez firing throngh the 
air, striking the water with great force 

and simultaneously exploding in a sheet |

One Source of Eailway Accidents. 

A railway accident happened recently 
lwhich might have been prevented if a 
| conductor had applied the power brake, 
which was at his command, instead of 
putting on the hand brake. Conductors 
have got so into the habit of thinking 
that they must pull the bell rope when 
it is necessary to make an emergency 
stop that they are likely to forget that 
the immense power of the air brake can 
| be applied from the car as well as from 
the engine. Even with a pneumatic or 
electric connection with the engine, 
| which is so much surer and quicker than 
a bell rope, there is a theoretical advan- 
tage in applying the brake direct from 
the passenger car, for there is only one 
operation to be performed instead of 
two, as when the engineer has to act 
after being signaled by the conductor. 

Where the conductor's valve is made 
accessible from any point in the car by 
means of a cord running the whole 
length this advantage is certainly appre- 
ciable in every case. As the necessity 

of making an emergency stop comes up | 

very frequently in the experience of a 
conductor or brakeman there would 

seem to be no certain way of changing | 

their mental habits in this respect ex- 
cept by putting them through a course 
of training, on the same principle that 
shopmen are trained to respond to an 
| alarm of fire.—Railroad Gazette. 

Diplomacy of Waiters. 

My waiter knows as much English as 
I do German, and so we get on beauti- 
fully. On one of the hot days when he 
came for my order I wearily said, “I 
will stick to beef.” 
vas dot? 
terbef,” said this steady and stolid son 
of Germany. 
“befsteak,” but “stickterbef” was too 
tmouch for him. A negro waiter will 
never acknowledge that he does not 
know the thing you ask for. nor that 
they do not keep the article, but he will 
always lie out of it some way. 

Some years ago the learned Dr. Thomp- 

son and I went into an eating house | 

| where there were negro waiters, and I 
gave my order, whereupon the doctor 
ejaculated, “Duplicate for me,” and con- 
tinued his talk. 

“What is dat you say. sar?” asked the 
maz of color. 

“Duplicate for me,” said the doctor 

| Wednesday is our regular day for dupli- 
cate, sar,” said this man and brother. 
The doctor laughed until I was 
ashamed of him.—Portland Argus. 

The Grounds at Chautaogua. 

Chautangua is a village of tents and 
houses, Swiss chalets and board shan- 
ties, “‘halls,” a hotel and an amphithea- 
tre which is a strange looking place when 
empty and a remarkable spectacle when 
filled It is on a side hill, which has 
been excavated to form a hollow, which 
is ined with closely set tiers of benches, 
separated by paths which converge and 

slope down to the platform below the | 

organ loft. The sides are open. The 
roof, which rises toward the center, is a 
perfect sounding board. The amphithea- 
tre will seat about seven thousand per- 
sons. Its acousticsareadmirable. When 
there is any entertainment in prospect 

people gothere hours before the time | 

appointed in order to secure seats. Men 
take books and papers and women read 

| Or work to while away the time of wait- 
ing. Those who arrive late form part 

| of the crowd, sometimes eight or ten 
deep, standing »round outside under the 
projecting roof. which forms a shelter.— 
Chautangua Letter. 

Danger in Diphtheria.

| one,” said a keeper of one of these ~-pet 
| hotels,” “yet it is not as great as we 
would like ittobe. i think that the 
keeping of a house cat or dog is getting 
less and less popular with people in or- 
@inary circumstances. The wealthy 
people keep them because they have the 
room and servants to look after them. 
The wealthy though, generally own 
| their country or beach places and send 
their pets there, so we get very few 
boarders from them 

“While people in ordinary circum- 
stances are giving up dogs and cats as 
honst pets they are growing fonder and 
fonder of song birds Dealers who take 
birds to board are now doing a rushing 
business People of moderate means 
when they leave town generally go to 
hotels where they would not be allowed 
to take their pets, so it is from them we 
get most of our boarders. One Sixth av- 
enue dealer is boarding nearly one hun- 
dred canaries and many parrots and 
mocking birds. Fifty cents a week is 
the charge for smal] birds und seventy- 
five cents for parrots. We charge $10a 
month for a dog’s board, and $7 a month 
for cats. 

“People who value their domestic pets 
should be very careful how they care 
for them during the summer. Give 
your birds plenty of rape seed, and as 
little large seed as possible. Slip a piece 
of green stuff between the bars of the 
cage occasionally. Also give them a bit 
of apple once a day. Apple is a natural 
tonic to birds. Keep your cats indoors 
as much as possible, and brush their 
coats thoroughly every day. Feed them 
lightly, giving them fish and milk dishes. 
but no meat. 


“There is not ons owner of a dog in 
ten who knows how to care for the ani- 
mal The dog should be kept as quiet 
as possible throughout the heat of the 
| day, but he should not be chained or 

worried with restraint He should be 

fed lightly and only twice a day, and 

change should be made in his food fre 

quently. Don't give him meat. Give 
| him a bone to chewonce in a while. 

For staple food give him milk dishes and 
| vegetables. A great many people will 
tell you a dog won't eat vegetables. If 
a dog turns away from vegetables the 
first time take them away atonce. Give 
him a fresh supply at the next meal. He 
will be hungry enough to eat them then, 
and soon will take to them as naturally 
as to meat. 

“Dogs should frequently be washed in 
cold water containing a Lttle alcohol 
Use common yellow soap. If you must 
| muzzle your ddg in summer, don't keep 
him without a muzzle all the rest of the 
year. Putit on him forshalf hour or 
so every day, and he will get so used to 
it that when he has to wear it steadily 
it wont worry him. If people would do 
tiis for their pets there would be fewer 
so called mad dogs. Dogs are very like- 
ly to have a rush of blood to the head 
That givesthem a running fit. They 
froth at the mouth and people think 
‘her aremad Inever saw a mad dog, 

i i have been handling dogs for fiftr 

ars. When a dog gets one of these 
running fits he is harmless, and if iis 
| head is ducked into a pail of cold water 
he will quickly come around.” 

“At this time,” said a South Fifth 
| avenne bird fancier, “‘not one quarter of 
the birds and animals here are mine. Most 
| of them are boarders. There are, be 

sides the canaries, finches, thrushes, 
mocking birds, macaws, parrots, and in 
that row of strong wire cages are catsof 
valuable strains, and back further I have 
the monkeys, while 1 keep the dogs in

The Popular Chief of the Fire 
Does the Honors. 

Chief Engineer Ripley entertained a 
number of his friends at his home Wednes- 
day evening, the occasion being his thirty- 
ninth birthday. The party consisted of 
Engineers King of Ward Five, Newcomb 
of Ward Two, Litchfield of Ward Three, 
Packard of Ward One, White of Ward 
Four, Electrician Wight, Councilmen Kap- 
ples and Souther, J. F. Costello of the 
Boston Globe, and the representative of 
the Darty LEDGER. 

A letter was received from Engineer 
Richardson of Ward Six stating that he 
would be unable to attend on account of 
injury received during the day. 

When the party arrived handshaking 
was in order and then all made themselves 
at home until 10 o’clock when they sat 
down to a bountiful supper. After this 
received attention, Joe became master of 
ceremonies and the smokes were started. 
Everybody was obliged to either make a 
speech, sing a song or—well. All re 
sponded taking for their subject “ Fire 
Department.”” From the talk it could be 
plainly seen that Mr. Ripley was held in 
the highest esteem by his assistants and 
friends. The Chief responded and thanked 
all for their help in his efforts. 

Then the line was drawn on that and all 
were requested to relate some story of the 
days of the hand engines, and anybody 
who will recall those days can guarantee 
that there were some good ones told. 
Singing was then in order, (and a little 
dancing, too) Mrs. Ripley at the piano, and 
this was kept up until every song known 
by those present was warbled. At a late 
hour the party broke up, bidding good 
night to Mrs. Ripley, and one of the most 
popular chief engineers the Quincy Fire 
Department has ever had. 

N. E Wheaton Seminary Club. 
To the Editors of the Daily Ledger: 

The New England Wheaton Seminary 
Club, to which so many of your readers 
belong, will have its home for the coming 
season, as during last year, at the Thorn- 
dike in Boston, where meetings will be 
held on the second Saturday in each 
month, from October to March inclusive. 
This club although a union of former 
students and teachers of the famous old 
institution whose name it bears, some- 
thing more than an Alume Association. 
The home feeling, in a school like Whea- 
ton, is very strong, and the attachments 
between its students warm and lasting. 
But though a common love for their alma 
mater was the bond which first drew the 
members of this organization together, it 
is not that entirely which now holds them 
in enthusiastic and loving loyalty. The 
remembrance of studies pursued together 
in the past suggested the renewal of these 
pleasant associations, in fresh fields, and 
the organization became a literary club to 
which it is both a pleasure and profit to 

The first meeting of the club for this 
season will be held Saturday, October 11, 
with a business session at noon, luncheon 
at 1, and literary meeting at 2 o'clock. 
The topic for the afternoon is ‘‘ Violins 
and Violinists,”’ GRADUATE.

A Tuartle’s Toilet. 

‘Never until this year have I been so 

glad to see the schools begin,” said a 
t citizen. 

“Why?” asked his curious friend. 

“Well,” replied the gentleman, “I shall 
tell you of a remarkable effect which a 
school a few miles from here has pro- 
duced upon the lower animals. 

“A year ago a young couple were 
boating on a pond in the vicinity of this 
school, when the youth, who was row- 
ing, took off his cuffs and laid them on 
the seat in the stern of the boat. 

“By an unfortupste twirl of her para- 
sol the young lady knocked the articles 
overboard, and the weight of the buttons 
took them straight to the bottom. 

“‘Now comes the wonderful part. A 
day or two ago the pond was drained, 
and a number of boys in the vicinity 
went in with gigs and nets to catch the 
fish; but imagine their surprise when 
they found a large snapping turtle wear- 
ing the cuffs in the most approved col- 
lege style. In consideration for his in- 
telligence the snapper was allowed to 
pursue his course in civilization, and as 
soon as the school convenes a cane and 
spectacles will be dropped for his ben- 

“Oh-h-h!"—Minneapolis Tribune. 

Starved in the Midst of Plenty. 

It seems strange that in thiscity a 
man should die of starvation, but such 
is the fact in reference to Professor San- 
born, the elocutionist, who died at St. 
Stephen’s hospital. Professor Sanborn 
came to this city some eighteen months 
ago and began teaching elocution. He 
was of a quiet furn of mind and his hab- 
its were good. He obtained a few pu- 
pils, but not enough to earn him any- 
thing like a living. He rented a room, 
and by the most rigid economy and by 
doing without food was able to save 
enough to pay the rent. Failing to get 
pupils he has been starving himself for 

Not long since, when giving a lesson, 
he fell in a faint from exhaustion on ac- 
count of being so weak for want of food. 
From this his friends suspected his con- 
dition and they brought him plenty to 
eat, but he had done without food for so 
long that his stomach would not digest 
the food. He was thoroughly honest, 
and had with him that pride which 
made him feel that he would rather go 
hungry and, if need be, starve than tell 
his friends he was too poor to buy a 
meal's victuals.—Richmond (Va.) Whig. 

Dangerous Roman Candles. 

A fireworks company near New York 
made the fortunate discovery last week 
that an employe was filling Roman can- 
dles with both clay and powder. The 
addition of the clay, it is said, makes 
the exploding of the candle dangerous, 
being liable to cause the bullets to come 
out of the end heldin the hand. The 
man has been arrested, but denies that 
he has done as charged. 

It appears that thousands of dollars’ 
worth of the candles have been tampered 
with. Some of them have been shipped 
to customers in various parts of the 
United States, but they have been re- 
quested to return them to the factory. 
Officers of the company are of the opin- 
ion that he did not put the clay into the 
candles of his own accord, but was 
prompted to do so by some enemy of the 
concern.—Philadelphia Ledger. 

Spunky School Children. 

The Sidney public school senior class 
were all expelled this year just a short 
time before the close of the schools. All 
of the members of the class had 
their graduating essays, and as the school 
board refused to reinstate them they 
hired a hall, charged twenty-five cents 
admission and had a commencement of 
theirown. The citizens of Sidney ad- 
mired the spunk displayed by the class, 
and patronized them so well that it 
netted each one a neat sum, and the en- 
tire class took a tri 
with the proceeds.—Marion (O.) Mirror.

Annual Meeting Held Last Eyep. 
ing in City Hall, 


Bat a Few Hundred Dollars More Needed 
for the Beautiful Stracture— Contract 
Signed for Its Construction—01q Board 
of Officers Re-elected. 

The Quincy Village Improvement Society 

held its annual meeting in city ha) 
Wednesdaay evening, President Sproul in 
the chair. The records of the last meeting 
were read and accepted. 

The report of the Fountain committee 
Mr. A. E. Sproul, Mrs. A. E. Faxon and 
Dr. Gordon showed that the structure 
would cost completed, about $7,(1) a: 
follows: Bid of McKenzie & Patersoy 
$5,888, plumbing $250, architect's com. 
mission $588.80. There is now deposited 
in the bank to the credit of the fund g5.. 
786.45, and the annual dues of the mep. 
bers of the society are now due, which 
would increase the amount considerably, 

Upon motion of Dr. Gordon the folloy. 
ing gentlemen were added to the fountain 
building committee: Messrs. Henry 
McGrath E. Fred Carr and R. F. Claflin, 

The contract for the fountain was signed 
and calls for its completion May 1, 189}, 

An excellent plan of the First Church 
property, drawn by Devlin & McKay, 
showing improvements which were cop. 
templated in connection with the erection 
of the fountain, were submitted and met 
with universal approval. It proposes to 
remove the present posts and chains, to 
change the boundary somewhat, build a 
sidewalk around the same with a grass 
plot and curbing outside. The fountain to 
be located at the northerly corner, perhaps 
twenty-five feet south of the present one. 

Secretary's Report. 
The annual report of the secretary, Mr, 
Faxon, is given below : 

Since the last annual meeting, the history 
and work of the society has centered in the 
Public Fountain. Early last winter, 
several members volunteered to solicit for 
this, and Mrs. King took the longest 
street Hancock, and was successful in col- 
lecting a large amount. Miss Dora French 

and Mrs, A. E. Sproul, also entered upon 
the arduous task and their returns were 
ample to repay them for their labor. 

Mrs. Babcock inaugurated a pretty 
festival in the Unitarian Chapel which also 
added to the treasury. Others collected 
some, and we are indebted to the Quincy 
PATRIOT, and Devlin & Mackay for re 
duction of bills, and to many others for 
help and kindness received. The list of 
workers and of donors is too long to 
mention separately. 

The society having voted to devote its 
income tothe Public Fountain, the general 
treasury run too low to make an appro 
propriation for the pretty triangle in the 
Square, but Mrs. Babcock’s spirit and 
taste somehow has supplied the deficiency, 
and more than usual beauty has greeted us 
there this summer. It is hoped next Spring 
the improvements there will be wore 

There is reason to believe that if the 
society is awake, persons will not be found 
wanting to take up the work for which one 
exist, and to begin to make smal! squares 
or spaces beautiful instead of allowing 
them to remain as they are,—blots in the 
landscape. The places most prominently 
named to the Secretary have been thes, 
at the junction of Penn and Liberty streets, 
Franklin and School streets, near St. Johns 
L. and A. association, and there are wavy 
others that need care. We suggest that at 
this or at some future meeting, committees 
be appointed to attend to the work of im 
provement at these places. After our 
fountain is completed, the assessment with 
what money ought to be contributed by 
persons living near these places, would be 
amply sufficient to do what would be 
needed in creating beauty where deformity 
now exists. Prevention is better than cut. 
Will not more breathing places, more paris, 
more playgrounds, more external beall'y 
extend a benefit that will make physi 
conditions better and thus indirectly hep 

H. jour hospital by creating better physical 

and moral well being. Do not flag in 
good work.

House at Wollaston Ransacked 
Yesterday Afternoon, 


Considerable Booty Secured—Neighbors 
Saw Two Men Leave the House, and One 
Is Now Thought to Have Worn Mr. Wil- 
liamson’s Overcoat. 

Mr. E. E. Williamson, a well-known 
gentleman throughout Massachusetts, 
lives on Norfolk street, Wollaston, with no 
very near neighbors, but his house is in 
plain sight from several. Yesterday he 
was at his place of business in Boston, and 
his wife left home about 1.30 in the after- 
noon to do a little shopping in Boston. 
She returned by the 4.42 train but did not 
reach home until about 5.30. 

Her suspicions were aroused as she ap- 
proached the house, for some of the blinds 
she had left shut were observed to be 
opened. Upon entering she found that 
the house had been ransacked from top to 
bottom, All the doors were open and the 
contents of drawers emptied on the floor. 
She realized at once that the house had 
been robbed. Mr. Williamson soon re- 
turned and he immediately notified Con- 
stable Furnald, who made an examination. 

The robbers entered by a kitchen win- 
dow, first breaking the glass near the 
catch. The missing property includes a 
valuable watch owned by the son, Mr. 
Clifford Williamson, a box of jewelry 
prized by the family more for'its associa- 
tions than the intrinsic value, other jewelry, 
a pair of opera glasses, an overcoat and 
other clothing. 

Between 2.15 and 2.30 Miss Minnie Dew- 
snap, of a neighbor's family, saw two men 
leave the house, one of whom she thinks 
now had on Mr. Williarnson’s seal brown 
overcoat. The same two men were thought 
to have been at the depot when Mrs. Wil- 
liamson left for Boston. Others inter- 
viewed also observed two strange men, and 
the description given wiilaid much in the 
detection of the burglars. 

The Japanese Wedding. 

The Japanese wedding, which the Wol- 
laston Circle of the King’s Daughters are 
to give in the Congregational church next 
Wednesday evening, is at present the 
principal topic of discussion. The cast is 
an unusually strong one and will show 
some fine pantomimic work. The cere- 
mony will be performed, according to the 
Buddhist rite, at 8 o’clock, in the auditorium 
of the church. Very elaborate costumes 
have been secured for the bride and groom, 
and also the bridesmaids, ushers, and 
attendants. After the ceremony dry and 
wet tea and refreshments will be served in 
the vestry. The price of admission has 
been placed at fifteen cents. 

Atlantic Musical Soeliety. 

The members of the Atlantic Musical 
Society held their annual meeting Tuesday 
night at the residence of Mr. Frank Thomas 
on Billings street, made plans for the 
coming winter and elected the following 
officers for the ensuing year. 

President,—Charles F. Merrick. 

Vice Presidents,—Mrs. Roger Wilde and 
Mrs. Charles L. Coe. 

Secretary,—Charles A. Hall. 

Treasurer,—John Carver. 


The Kings Daughters will hold a Butter- 
fly party in Washington hall tonight. Ice 
cream and cake will be served and one of 
the features will be a ‘‘ Preserve Table.” 

Kemp & Tisdale are making extensive 
repairs in order to start their new meat 
market. They intend to have it ready by 
the first of the coming month, and will 
carry a full line of meat. 

The laying of the water works is being 
rapidly pushed. 

Miss Davenport and Mrs. Littlefield who 
have been sick, are about the same.

T. L. Pearce is well satisfied with the 
colt he purchased a short time ago. He is 
at present having an elegant wagon built

The first anniversary of Granite Lodge, 
No. 29 O. of T, F. C., was held Thursday 
evening. Supreme and Grand Officers 
were present and Milton Lodge No. 66 of 
Milton Lower Mills, attended in a body. 
An entertainment and dance was held after 
which refreshments were served. The 
committee of arrangements was James 
Gibb, Thomas Robertson and D. F. Hurley. 

This lodge has grown largely the past 
year; W. W. Robertson, the secretary, 
states that Oct. 9, 1889 they had twenty- 
six members, while the corresponding date 
this year they had 100 members. 



He Accepts the Democratic Congressional 
Nomination in the Sixth District. 

The following is the letter of Dr. William 
Everett, of this city, accepting the nomi- 
nation in the Sixth District : 

Quincy, Oct. 8, 1890. 

To the Committee of the Democrats of 

the 6th District.—GENTLEMEN: I haye to 
acknowledge with the liveliest gratitude 
the great compliment paid me by the 
Democratic convention of the 6th congres- 
sional district in selecting me as their can- 
didate for Congress at the coming election. 

I believe it is entirely without precedent 
in our state that a district should seek its 
representative outside of its own limits, 
and it is, no doubt, at the expense of some 
very reasonable local pride that such a 
selection should be made. At the same 
time, I can see no reason, in so compact a 
state as ours, why every part of it should 
not look for service to the inhabitants of 
every other part, or why we should restrict 
our choice for representative by any nar- 
rower limits than the national constitution 

Several representatives of Massachusetts 
in the last Congress made the representa- 
tives of other states their political advisers 
instead of their own constituents: such 
men cannot think it improper if a district 
goes a few miles from its own extreme 
border to seek a candidate. Nor can I 
consent to be regarded as a stranger in a 
district where many generations of my 
ancestors were honored citizens, where my 
parents lived for many years; to which be- 
long the most delightful memories of my 
boyhood; which was the happy home of 
my early manhood, and from whose cities 
I have received the kindest appreciation of 
my efforts as a speaker. I cannot be other- 
wise than interested in a district which 
bears my own name at its very heart. 

I am assured by those who know the dis- 
trict best that its inhabitants are sincere 
in their choice, and that they are glad to 
welcome as a fellow-worker in national 
matters one who is not immediately as- 
sociated with their local interests. 

I gratefully accept the honor you confer 
on me, recognizing that the contest to 
which you invite me is no holiday task. 
Your present member, by his traditions, 
by his education, by his experience, bas 
established his right to be considered one 
of our most prominent men, and his hold 
onthe district is doubtless very strong. 

And yet recognizing his claims to distinc- 
tion as a politician, I cannot possibly allow 
that he or his party have so conducted public 
business as to deserve the gratitude of their 
fellow-citizens and the ratification of their 
measures at the polls, 

It seems to me that the Republican ma- 
jority in controlof the government have 
wielded their power with a disregard of the 
general public interests and a subserviency 
to individual demands without a parallel in 
our history for boldness and compliance. 

The passage of the McKinley tariff act 
and the customs administration act, the 
proposed “‘force”’ bill, in which your pres- 
ent representative is so largely interested; 
the pension legislation, the wholesale ad- 
mission of new states and the wholesale 
seating of members to increase their boasted 
majority, the autocratic conduct of their 
speaker, the systematic endeavor to pre- 
vent the voice of the minority from being 
heard, form a list of proceedings on the 
part of the majority which for alternative 
violence and servility are quite unprece- 
dented in congressional history. 

All these subjects demand a careful and 
stringent review by the people. They are 
none of them to be considered matters 
settled and done for. The representatives 
who consented to such legislation are ac- 
countable, and not only to their own dis- 
tricts, but to the state, the nation, and the 
common sense and conscience of mankind. 

Asking your indulgence if, with health 
not wholly restored, I fall somewhat short 
of the too flattering expectations you have 
held out to me, I am most gratefully and 
faithfully yours, (Signed) 


Good for West Quincy. 

Mr. B. W. Reardon made an offer some 
time ago to present a piece of land to any 
manufacturing concern who would locate 
in West Quincy. Later he increased the 
size of the lot and a large shoe manufac- 
turing firm have looked over the place and 
were favorably impressed. The parties 
interested do not care to give any names 
but it is a wealthy company and at present 
is not situated many milesfrom here. The 
Superintendent for the concern is going to 
pay a visit to West Quincy this afternoon. 
It is their intention to employ between 400 
and 600 persons. 

Parading in Boston. 

The St. Mary’s C. T. A. Society left 
West Quincy this morning to join in the 
parade in Boston today. About sixty 
members turned out and were accompanied 
by the Quincy Brass Band. All of the 
members carried canes. Thomas D. Mc- 
Grath, president of the society, was mar- 
shall and had for his aids John A. O’Brien 
and James F. Rooney.

The demands of the men are refused. The

The a ig unableto advance wages 
generally. It does not expect or desire to 

pay less wages for similar service than 
those paid upen competing and adjacent 
roads, but on the otber hand, as it eannet 
obtain highor rates for transportation it 
cannot afford to pay rates higher than its 
competitors, and the fact is that its pres- 
sut rates are almost without exception 
higher than the average paid by them. In 
the few instances where this is not the 
case the company will, hewever, readjust 
its rates. Sofar asthe management of 
the co: .orate business and the employe 
ment and discipline of the company’s 
officials are coneerned, those matters are 
committed by law to the wise discretion 
of the officers and directors in office when 
questions regarding the same may from 
time to time arise. No one has power to 
make any arrapgements or contracts 
which will be effectual to deprive them of 
that discretion. 

The interest of all concerned—of the em- 
ployes no less than all others—require 
that the lawin these respects should be 
obeyed, and the stability and efficiency of 
the corporation be thus ensured. But the 
officers of the company wiH continue in 
the future, as they have in the past, to 
faithfully endeavor to promote the wel- 
fare of each and every employe, as well as 
the efficiency of the service. 


Atlanta Constitution Seized for Alleged 
Violation of the Anti-Lottery Law. 

ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 10.—The postal au- 
thorities have seized the weekly edition of 
The Atlanta Constitution, which con- 
tained a prize distribution offer to its sub- 
scribera, to be settled by a Christmas 
drawing. About 100,000 papers got out 
before the seizure was made and the 
northern edition of 15,000 is detained. The 
paper offered to give bonds for any amount 
to cover any verdict which might be ren- 
but the postal authorities were 
obdurate and refused to letthe papers go 
through the mails. The objectionable 
feature consisted in the announcement 
that the paper would distribute prizes in 
its Christmas box, which feature The Con- 
stitution, like many other papers, has 
been running in connection with The 
Weekly Constitution for years. The pos-

the recently passed anti-lottery law. When 
the law was passed The Constitution an- 
nounced that the newspapers ought to 
assist the government in executing its 
provisions, and promptly stapped the

Brings a Few Facts to the Ameri- 
can Board’s Attention. 


Two Many Church Quarrels Have In- 
jared the Board—Home Secretary Gets 
a Share of Sharp Criticism. 

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Oct. 10.—The most 
intensely interesting paper to come before 
the American board now in session in this 
city, and the one which excited the closest 
attention and called forth a most personal 
and acrimonious bebate of almost three 
hours’ duration, was the report of the 
committee of nine. This committee was 
appointed a year ago to examine into the 
methods of administration of the officials 
of the board in Boston, and especially the 
methods employed by the home secretary 
in asserting the qualifications of candi- 
dates for the missionary field. 

The report made a detailed showing of 
the finances of the board, and compared 
what the board has received yearly for its 
work with what is given to the other 
large benevolent societies of the church. 
The figures showed that while the con- 
tributions to these other bodies have been 
increasing year by year as the ehurch 
grew, there has been practically no in- 
crease in the gifts tothe American board, 
a state of affairs, the paper argued, show- 
ing dissatisfaction in the churches over 
the quarrels that have come as a result of 
the present system of administration. The 
paper was lengthy, but is summed up in 
the following resolutions, which are its 
concluding paragraphs: 

Resolved, First, that the committee on 
the treasurer’s report be appointed by the 
board at the annual meeting next pre- 
vious to the meeting at which such com- 
mittee is called on to act, and that a copy 
of the report of the treasurer be sent, as 
soon as possible, to each member of the 
committee for inspection, and that any 
desired information may be asked for. 

Second, that by-law 17 pase 12, of the 
last published edition of the charter and 
by-laws be amended so that the last sen- 
tence of it shall read instead of “they (the 
auditors) shall have authority at any time 
to employ an expert in the particular ex- 
amination on the accounts,” “the auditors 
shall annually employ an expertin the 
examination of the treasurer’s accounts.” 

Third, that there be asustantial increase 
of the force employed by the board to 
bring the interest of its missions and the 
cause it represents before the churches 
contributing toits support. 

Fourth, with reference to the important 
subject of making appointments; that 
questions land 2, section 6, of the manual 
for missionary candidates be amended so 
that they shall read as follows: 

Question 1—What are your views re- 
specting each of the leading doctrines of 
scripture commonly held by the churches 
sustaining this board? 

In answering this question you may use 
your own language or refea to any creeds 
of acknowledged weight. 

Question 2—Have you any views at vari- 
ance with these doctrines or any views of 
church government which would prevent 
your co-operation with the missionaries of 
this Scent 

These questions being so amended, all 
a plications for missionary appointments 

shall be made as now tothe correspond- 
tue secretaries of the board. Without 
further correspondence on the doctrinal 
matters the communications thus received 
by the secretaries shall be presented forth- 
with to the prudential committee. In 
case the committee desires further 
scrutiny into the theological eine 
ions of the candidate this shall 
had through an_ interview with the 
committee as a body; or in case thatin a 
special instance that is not practicable, 
with a sub-committee appointed by them 
from their own number, and consisted in 
part of laymen. At such theological 
eXamiuation by the committee, the doors 
shall be open for the presenee of any mem- 
bers of the board or personal friends of the 

The debate was most personal and ani- 
mated in character. The first speech was 
by Dr. Joseph Cook, attacking the paper, 
and he was replied to by Dr. Quint. Then 
the venerable Dr. Thompson of Boston,for 
many years chairman of the prudential 
committee, cast a bombshell into camp by 

reading a paper criticising severely the 
methods of the committee of nine in mak- 
ing its investigations, and taking excep- 
tion to the report as reflecting against sec- 
retaries and the prudential committee, 

Dr. Walker made a spirited reply. He 
said his committee had abundant evidence 
for the ground it had taken, but had pre- 
ferred to suppress it. However, since Dr. 
Thompson had precipitated matters, he 
would make it public. He then read a 
series of letters regarding certain young 
lady students in W ellesley college who 
were rejected as missionaries some years 
ago. He read them to show that the rejec- 
tion was most unfortunate and improper 
and had effectually shut off Wellesley col- 
lege as a source of missionary supply. 

This was followed by the reading of a 
very personal and strong paper by the 
home secretary himself, Dr. E. K. Alden 
of Boston, who had been criticised by im- 
plication. Hedefended himself and the 
existing method of theological examina- 
tion. He criticised severely the examin- 
ing committee of nine, and took the 
ground that it had subjected the secre- 
taries and the prudential committee to un- 
fair treatment. 

These charges were especially denied by 
Dr. Walker, Dr. Quint and others of the 
committee. But the personal discussion, 
which had now grown very acrimonious, 
was cut off by Dr. Storrs, the president, 
and the board held strictly to the pending 
motion, which was to adopt the resolu- 
tions attached to the report of the com- 
mittee. These were at last adopted unani- 
mously. Their adoption was regarded 
with the most satisfaction by all save the 
extreme men of the two wings. 

The evening was given to addresses by 
missionaries and an overflow meeting was 
held in Westminster Presbyterian church. 

Riot in India. 

Paris, Oct. 10.—Dispatches from Pondi- 
cherry, the capital of the French settle- 
ment in India, say thata serious election 
conflict has taken place there between a 
mob and the police. During the fight sev- 
eral were wounded on both sides. The ri- 
oters hold the polling stations and voting 
is for the time being suspended. The mil- 
itary have been ordered out. 

Routed by Strikers. 

Sypyey, N. 8. W., Oct. 10.—The non- 
union coal miners who took the places of 
the strikers at Bulli, were attacked by the 
unionists, who drove the non-union mem 
away and occupied the mines, The police 
were unable to cope with the strikers, and 
reinforcements have been sent to aid them 
in restoring order. 

Express companies, being served with 
notices by Worcester police, have discon- 
tinued carrying liquor into that city.

The father of thetwo young girls tells 
the following story: The children attended 
school on Tuesday, but did not return 
home that evening. When he returned 
home from work next evening he found 
that they had not yet returned, and, 
the mother being unable longer to govern 
her impatience, he went to the village to 
make sure that they were there. 

Upon his arrival there he was thunder- 
struck to learn that the children had not 
been there at all, and, what was more 
alarming, that they had not even been to 
school on that day. Now thoroughly 
aroused, he made his way to St. Joseph’s 
village, some seven miles this side of Cum- 
berland, thinking they might have gone 
to visit his brother-in law at that place. 

It was now ni zht, and in the meantime 
the alarn, had been given, and the vil- 
lagers had become acquainted with the 
news and at once resolved on a search. 
They explored vainly till 10 o’clock, when 
one of the parties suddenly came on the 
two bodies, cola and dead, lying on their 
backs, in an unfrequented byroad, a short 
distance from the road traveled to the 

The bodies lay side by side as though 
placed in that position by their murderer. 
The faces presented a sickening appear- 
ance; the tongues protruded from the 
mouths, andthe eyes looked upward in 
speechless terror. 

Around each neck was adark circle, the 
witness to the awful fact of strangula- 
tion. The clothes on their bodies were all 
disarranged. The faces of the girls, con- 
cluded Mr. McGonigle, bore evidence of a 
terrible struggle. 


Injury to One of Bangor's Leading Cit-

While Hon. Lewis A. Barker was stand-

der the influence of opiates and the leg 
amputated. Be'ore administering the 
opiates he was told that he had only one 
chance to come out of it and asked if he 
had anything tosay. He replied that he 
would take that one chance and for them

In the Annals of Horse Trotting 
Happen at Terre Haute. 


The Fastest Heat Ever Made by 8 
Stallion—Hal Pointer Races a Mile in 
2:09 8-4—-The Fastest Three Heats Ever 
Recorded by any Horse in Harness. 

TERRE HAvTE, Ind., Oct. 10.—The fol- 
lowing three fastest harness records in 
the world were made here: 

The fastest stallion record 2:11 1-4; the 
fastest mile ever paced or trotted in a 
race, 2:09 3-4, and the three fastest heats in 
a race, 2:09 3-4, 2:12 3-4, 2:13. 

Amphitheatre, paddock and infield were 
filled with spectators to witness the 
greatest card of events ever offered by a 
trotting association. It was a perfect au- 
tumn day, with a gentle breeze blowing, 
and the track was very fast. The great 
attraction was the announcement that 
Nelson would ‘go to beat Axtell’s time 
(2:12) made over this track last fall 
About 8 o’clock the great Maine stallion 
appeared on the track, driven by his 
owner, C. H. Nelson, and was given a 
warming-up heat, in 2:23, the last quarter 
in 321-4. 

A quarter of an hour Iater the stallion, 
with his smooth and frictionless motion, 

the stretch. 

came brushing down 
The second time down, the word was 
given, with the stallion going 

smooth and strong with the runner 
back. The watches split at 32 seconds at 
the first quarter, the half in 1:04 3-4, the 
horse going entirely on his courage. Now 
the runner quickens his stride and moves 
up, and with his ears laid back, the great 
stallion catches the half beats behind him. 
Another link is let out out as he gamely 
fights against time. To the three-quarter 
pole in 1:36 1-2, and as he swings into the 
turn for home, all know another record 
has gone down. 

Cheer after cheer goes up as he flashes 
under the wire in 2:111-4. The driver, C. 
H. Nelson, is scarcely permitted to salute 
the judges for dismounting orders ere the 
track is black with a wildly enthusiastic 
crowd. Nelson is lifted bodily from the 
sulky and borne aloft on the shoulders of 
the enthusiasts. The stallion’s neck is 
encircled with a wreath of flowers, and 
quite a time elapses before he can be led 
from the track. The time by quarters 
was 32, 82 3-4, 31 3-4, 34 3-4. 

Hal Pointer’s Great Permforance, 

The triumph of Nelson had prepared the 
spectators forthe great free-for-all pac- 
ing race. B. B. had the pole, Hal Pointer 
second, followed by Adonis, Pickaway 
and Dr. M. Gers did not pursue his 
usual tactics, but scored his horse up 
strong in a determination to win the heat.
