Charges of fracd in connection with the collapse of tha Liberator society and other con cerns in connection with it. The steam' er was met off Calshot castle by a police tug apoa which Balfour was taken shore, surrounded by a crowd of de tective and policemen in uniform. The most elaborate precautions were taken im order to prevent the public from dis covering where the prisoner was to be landed, as it was feared that an attempt might be made on his life. The police and Balfour finally reached the railroad station at Southampton, where the lat ter was smuggled into a first class rail ' road carriasre. tha shades of which were r drawn down. At Waterloo railroad station an enor- mous crowd of people was in waiting, attracted by the jiewsof the arrival at Somthampton of the Tartar Prince, and in expectation of seeing the prisoner landed at that depot on the train from Southampton. But Balfour and his es cort were landed at Vauxhall railroad station and were driven to the Bow Street police court. The proceedings at Bow Street were of the character usual upon such occasions; the prisoner was formally charged, the papers in the case were examined and he was remanded until May W Minneapolis Murder Mystery.

It is reported that Li Hung Chang has been degraded. China Has Battled. Washington, May 6. An official cable to a different quarter gives decisive information that the emperor of China has ratified the treaty. The informa tion is so positive as to be beyond ques tion. It clears up many contradictory statements from unofficial sources as to whether the emperor had or had not ratified. A press dispatch from Yoko hama today says that China's ratifica tion is still in doubt. All this doubt is put at rest, however, by the authorita tive information reaching Washington. The ratification of the Chinese emperor brings China and Japan to a final ac cord, so that it remains only for Japan to settle with Russia and other protest ing powers. It also make certain that the armistice, which runs until Wednes day the same day as the ratification will not be followed by a Japanese ad vance on Peking. Outbreak In Nicaragua.

Receiver Trum bull, of the Gulf system, was in consul tation today with United States Judge J. A. Riner and the Wyoming state of ficials on the disputed question of in spection of southern cattle at this point. As a result the difficulty is in a fairway toward being amicably adjusted. The points at which cattle will be inspected will be determined by the place of start ing, and the Wyoming authorities will not compel the unloading and inspection of cattle here, which have but six hours before gone through the same proceed ing at Denver. Peculiar Case of Petrification. Monterey, Cal., May 6 The death in this city of William Tibbetts ended a case which is scarcely without a parallel in medical history. The deceased was a sufferer from dropsy, but the peculiarity is that he was in a state of partial petri fication.

Senator Jones of Aylra" is among those who believe that an international monetary confer ence will be held during the present year to consider the relationship of sil ver to gold as a money metal. He is one of the members on the part of the senate. who will attend the conference in case one is called, and has naturally kept track of all that has been done in the matter. He said in discussing the probabilities that while Germauy had not, to his knowledge, issued an execu tive call for a conference, the action of the reichstag had been accepted as offi cial by the governments of the United States, Franco aud Great Britaiu, and added that ho did not believe the execu tive authorities of the tier man empire would allow 1ese countries to conclude that shs had been trifling merely. Hence, he be lieved that the invitation would come in due form, if it had not already been sent out. Asked as to the time when he thought the conference would be called for, he said it would probably be late in the season, not earlier than Oc tober, and possibly as late as November. He said that both sides of the contro versy were apparently anxious for de lay, and this being the case he believed they would be gratified. The English bimetallists claim to be making substan tial headway and are asking for all the time that can be given before the meet ing of the conference. IN THE FIELD OF LABOR. Sympathy Is With the Miners. Pocahontas, Va., May 6. There are no miners working today in the mines here, and while Monday is regarded as an off day it is believed the union men have won the miners here and that the strikers have the field. The Hungar ians have refused to work, and only a very few men went up to report for duty. They were what are known as day men, who lay tracks and work at the machines. The town was quiet last night and good order prevailed, the miners remaining in and at their homes, but they were indignant at the attack made last evening on oue of their speak ers, Mr. Warbnrton, who was knocked down by Mr. Hall on the depot platform and seriously hurt. The meeting today at 10 o'clock was largely at tended. The sympathies of this section are with the miners. The operators, itisbelieved.will suspend any attempt to run the mines. Textile Workers, In Session. Providence. R. I.. May 6. The sixth annual convention of the National Union of Textile Workers of America, opened in Olneyville this morning. About 120 delegates were present, rep resenting 50,000 textile workers through out the country. The convention will, it is expected, consider a plan for the prevention of too many strikes at on6 time, as in that way too large a burden is placed on the shoulders of the national union when the full strength of that body may be required in order that it may make a winning fight in one im portant locality. Bitter Feeling Against Barns. London, May 6. John Burns, mem ber of parliament and labor leader, in the course of his speech at the Labor day demonstration in Hyde park, was greeted with groans and cries of "Why did you not support Keir Hardy?" "Traitor," etc. Replying to this out burst of disapproval, Mr. Bnrns said: "If you don't want to hear me I will go gone." This was followed by cries of "go home," "you are no world ngman." St. tools Strike. St. Louis, May 6. There is no change in the condition of the hod carriers' strike. The strikers are determined to hold out, and have "pickets" appointed traversing all sections of the city keep ing union men away from their old jobs. A meeting of the boss bricklayers was held today. Failed to Agree With Operators. Columbus, May 6. The Ohio miners' officials today issued a circular to their constituency to the effect that it was impossible to agree with the operators; that no work bs done in or around mines except pumping and bailing water. Laid Down Their Tools. Bellaire, May 6. All the miners who were on the 60 -cent basis and those on the co-operative plan were notified to lay down their tools and go out.

MOST o DELICIOUS o COFFEE IN o THE WORLD ! SPURR'S REVERE MOCHA JAVA EEAL RAZORBACKS. A HOMELY AND FEROCIOUS HOG ON HiS NATIVE HEATH. Ha Deec Net BeMaabla. Hie Pampered Brother of the Berkshire Breed His Ex istence Measured by the Kale of "Root, Bos. or Die" Hot Killin Parties. There is a groat difference in hogs. The form, contour and face of the rounded, sleek sided, short legged Berkshire and other hogs of hich decree do not much resemble the angular, ra zor backed hog common throughout the south. The countenance of the well bred, well cared for species is chubby and contented looking, the ears small, the enout inclined to turn up rather than down. , His iessfortunato cousin has a long, narrow face, immense, flop ping ears tbas hang disconsolately over bis eyes, and an elougated, pointed snout that seems providentially formed to aid his earthy explorations. "Root, hog, or die," i3 a common saying in the country of which this hog is a na tive, and the swine seem to realize the situation. They have long legs and al ways run with their snouts close to the ground, convenient for unearthing any thing..eatable which may come. in their way They diligently root up the prom ising morsel of foot! and gulp it down, without stopping to enjoy it, and run on apparently faster than ever, grout ing as they go, in search of something more some favorite acorn or jnicy bit of grass or berry root, upon wheh they largely depend for subsistence. Naturally the. vast amount of imper ative exercise they take ranging through the woods effectually prevents their tak ing on much saperCuons flesh, and the hair on their narrow backs is as rough and coarse as that of the well bred hoy is smooth and glossy. The majority oi them are of a dingy white color, per haps spotted with black, and when a white coated one, scantily covered witu hair, has pale eyes, bound around with pink, and very light eyelashes, protrud ing beneath his drooping earn, he is a ngly a living object as can bo imagined The little pigs are moderately pretty when young, but not. in the least like the plump, little, chubby faced babj Berkshire, aud long before they have arrived at the ago when they aro called shotps" they have becomo ungainly and common looking The negroes havi great faith in the ability of tho hog to survive any amount of neglect and still live to provide sausages and pork stew for tho wiutr season. At certain sea sons, when the "ehotes' can do no dam age to the roataring crops it is neces sary to confine th?m;antil tho fields arc bare cuco moro and will admit of their ranging at will. in the course of a'walk once, a small negro boy aud girl woro found seated on top of the fence which surrounded a pen, flinging corn to two hogs within the inclosure. ThsTHdo feeding trough was as dry s if uo liquid had ever dampened it, and this on a hot summer afternoon. Inquiry as to when tho pris oners had last bad water given them elicited no respoaM from the shy little 'shore raiwlers. " After some inquiry HUjd oxplaaatioo that the pigs would like water tb boy 'aw cnted to go to the housa, boom (twtflpjeeoff, fo a back rtt. after bnngiag ?vitfch tho children went to tko'spriHlj little hollow Tu the wood behiad tbepen, and procured water for tha thirsty creatures. It is needless to say that they drank it with ividity. This pea was ia an open field, with not a single bit of shade near. It tad belonged to an humble establish ncut, tJ'e houso an barn :f which had Uv.ru moved to some other tract of laud, :i:d the owner of the hogs had utilized ihe pan jx where it was, tho distance !rom his dwellings "Which was plenti-lully,supplied-with well water, render ing it most inconvenient to attend to tho wants of tho animals. Tho pea could easify have beeu moved, as the fence around it was mado of movable rails placed Jzigzaj; fashion on purpose that it might be changed from place to place, but evideutly tho com fort of the "shores" was not regarded as of much importance. Later, a small, slim figure, in a scant, homespun dress, faded and tern, suddenly emerged from a narrow path which opened upon the road, and a childish voico said timidly, Do you want 6ome headache blossom, ma'am?" a little black hand holding out a bunch of delicate pink flowers, with perfume more powerful than s weeL The acceptance of this .offering seemed to thaw out her reserve, aud the little girl volunteered tho information that sho and Yankee, her brother, "aimed 10 dash water to de hog ebery ebenin. " In the days ot the old regime the crops were all fenced in, and the hogs, and cattle as well, were allowed to roam at will through the fastnesses of the swamps and timbered tracts. Often times the animals were not seen fir months. When the timo drew near for bog killing, parties were made np to 'drive" tho swamp and capture the half wild creatures, as it was desired to fatten them in pens before killing. It was not infrequently the case that the swine became quite ferocious, having been left so long at large, and the hunt ers found themselves in tho midst of a "wild boar" hunt jn earnest, which they hugely enjoyed. Most of the farm rs of the southern states now leave their rrops unfenced, and the stock has to bo pastured or looked after, which practice has pnt an end to such pursuits. New York Tribune. HARRINGTON ffTOBIN, SOiE ACTS, NORTH. PLATTETNEB Thackeray on John l'aul Jones. "Traitor, if you will, was II. John Paul Jones, afterward knight of his most Christian majesty's Order of Mer it, but a braver traitor never wore a sword." Such wero almost the last words traced by tho hand of Thackeray, and they show the astonishing misconcep tion of Paul Jones which prevailed in the mind of one of the justest men that ever lived. "Washington was a hero even to his enemies, yet Washington had ac tually held a commission in tho Brit ish army, while Paul Jones could say to tho American congress at the close of the war: "I have never borne arms under any but the American flag, nor have I ever homo or acted under any commis sion but that of the congress of Amer ica." This singular distinction against Paul Jones extended to the whole of the feeblo naval force of the colonies. Sol diers were treated- from the beginning as prisoners of war, while until Paul Jones forced an exchange of prisoners upon equal terms American sailors were formally declared to be "traitor, pi rates and feIons.,, "Paul Jones," by Molly Eilfot Seiwell, in Century. ?T FOr A LIMITED- TIME eather Pocket Case FREE H EXCUrWG TOR 0 TEN-CENT VAPfctt.
