A Military Revolt in China.
The Chinese frontier town of Dub
lash.aii was a short time ago frightened
by a military revolt. Four officers, with
one general, were killed, and three forts
set on fire. The commander-in-chief fled
to the lakes. The panic was indescriba
ble. Although the mutineers had not
touched anybody or anytlung in the city
the entire population took to flight and
the governor of the neighboring Russian
posts made ready to meet an attack if
the Chinese should pursue the townsfolk.
But they did not. They seized all the
provisions and every cent of money they
could find in the barracks and decamped.
Thfi IVay Good Looking Young- I -mile
"lake ami Iluniile Million Their Work
anil Tlit-ir I'uy Intricacies of Jtauknoto
and Itoial Kugruviiig.
''Tln'iso are tlio fjirl.i who make money,"
rortuu-keil u Keiitleman n.s a long line of girls
oa:in laughing ami cliutting out of a lag
building. They were happy ami cheerful
ami a-s handsomely dressed and jauntily ar
rayed as if they were just making their exit
from a matinee. A rejiorter ventured up to
tho eighth lloor of the lij building to see the
money making process.
8euted at their desks in tho company's
ofiieo aro tho young ladies who act us ac
countants nnd thnekeejicrs. They are
a-ts at figures and tho wholo business of t'uo
department lists been reduced to such a system
that almost at a glance tho cost of every
thing that enters into tho work, even to the
e;uiii on the back of a stamp, can bo ascer
tained. A dixir to the left was opened, nnd disclosed
to view ten or a dozen girls engaged in veri
fying nnmbvrs and counting perfected work.
Here f;reat skill and quick perception aro re
quired. Sharp eyes run with the stx-ed of
lighiaiing down tho long rows of coupons and
verify the numbers, while other eyes, equally
as quick, examine each sheet and it is passed
along or tossed out aa imperfect, until tho
finished work reaches tho 'counter,' by whom
it is bundled, marked and certified with her
signature. It then goes to the great safe,
where it is receipted lor, und the work is fin
ished. millions of securities.
Standing in this safe, surrounded by mil
lions of securities, including many of tho
South and Central American republics, as
well as tho. of innumerable corporations in
tho United States and KurojH, tho process of
engraving and printing was explained from
tho time tho blank pajr left the stock room
until it reached this sufe in its finished condi
tion. Tho wholo business is conducted on a
series of orders nnd receipts, and not a sheet
or scrap of paper can go astray from the
time it enters the establishment until it is
ready for delivery. Indeed, when the safes
c::d lire iroof vaults are locked at night there
isn't paier enough a!out the establishment
for a mouse to make a bed.
Although European competition is largo
this country secures the 1 letter class of liond
and banknote work, for in no other land has
engiv.ving in this sjicc ial line reached such
perfection. Today tiie money makers of tho
United States stand at the head of the list, its
inventive gc-nius having solved jnany of the
problems ci' defeating tho imitator and tho
count er-roiior. Here, for instance, is a bond
of Cuba. On the back is a map of the island,
and in the net of scroll work the word "Cuba"
is woven 0,000 times. It is, however, but a
sample of many others, tho counterfeiting of
which is absolutely impossible. In the passage
of each one of these sheets of paper through tho
house it has been subjected to fifty -two count
ings from as many different persons. Every
spoiled and defective sheet has ttlso been ae
The engraving rooms, where skillful artists
were at their work; the process by which tho
engraved plates were transferred to the steel
press plates and hardened; the geometrical
lathe for engraving scroll work, which can
not be duplicated by hand ; tho printing and
the ink rooms all were visited, as were also
the great iron vaults, containing hundreds of
perfect plates, from which an average of
10,000,000 each of securities have been printed.
IN THE ENGRAVING KOOilS.
And except in the heavier parts of tho
business and in the engraving rooms the
girls who make money were everywhere.
They were met in the halls and rooms of tho
building, their arms burdened with bundles
of securities, which they were transjorimg
on their way to jierfection, tho amount in
hand being great enough to make them mil
lionaires; in the rooms running numbering
machines, as counters, pinners, flyers; and in
the press room, where each girl was assisting
'her man " in running the press, by damp
ing, laying ana nymg tne sheet, while "her
man" applied the ink, prepared the plate and
did the presswork. In this department each
girl Speaks of the pressman as "her man,"
the two working together, and when one is
absent the other, perforce, is idle also. In
fact, whenever girls are employed in the
mechanical department of making money,
they appear as man's assistant and help
mate. In the tower of the building there
was a perfect beehive of girls hard at work
examining nnd preparing the money on the
tabk-s before them, and happy and cheerful
looking ladies they were, too, as were about
all employed in the establishment.
There, too, you find pure, unadulterated
democracy. The girl who is engaged in
counting $10,000 bonds and examining their
coupons does not think herself a bit more ele
vated than the one who is assorting ten cent
notes, nor does she believe herself justified
in drawing invidious distinctions. She knows
in this mimicry, as in real life, the wbiiligig
of time maj' throw the bonds into the lap of
her companion, and give her tho small
change as a portion.
The very character of tne work precludes
the possibly of much talking. The eve, tho
touch and the mind must bo intent on tho
task in hand, for negligence or inattention is
certain to be detected at the next st3ge the
money takes in transit.
Why do j-ou employ girls in the process
of money making instead of men and boys;"
asked the reporter of his guide.
'Because they are quicker of perception,
have a more delicate sense of touch and are
more tractable than boys. In fact, a girl of
li, if suited to our employ, has the fixed
habits of a man of 25, combined with greater
expertness. Then they have a deeper sense
of duty, do exactly as they are instructed,
and are in every way more reliable than
boys, or even very young men.' New York
