Tailors on a Strike
Montgomery, Ala., April 10. Th
tailors' unian of this city went on a strike
today. They all sjuit work this morning
and tonight the striktt wag officially declar
ed by Sscratary Ryan, of the union. The
trouble originated in the fact that Alex
ander Rice and Lilienthal & Gassenhei
mer, merchant tailors, have several non
union men in their employ. The union
men demanded the discharge of the non
union tailors. The firms refused to ac
cede to their demands and the union or
dered a strike against them. The union
man have quit work and some of them
have left the city tonight to - seek work
elsewhere. The merchant tailors say they
will not discharge their non-union men,

An Apacherlsoner Decamps.
Mobile, Ala., April 11. Since the
Apache prisoners iiave been located on
the Government reservation at Mount
Vernon Barracks they have been allowed
a'great deal of freedom. The limits
have been pointed out to them, inside of
which they camp out as best suits their
inclination. They rarely stay in one place
longer than a week. An officer superin
tends the encampment, and . inspects it
daily, but there is no guard except at the
barricka'gate, placed there to prevent
their entrance. Tho whole world is open
to them in all other directions, and they
are frequently at the railroad station, a
maile and a half away. It was consid
ered that this restraint would be suffic
ient. It is now learned, however, that
dav before vesterday Louie, one of the
Indians, left at night for the far 4Weit,
taking an Indian maiden with him. A
mounted troon is in nursuit. but so far

The Morocco Troubls
"vTasuin-gton, April 10. Commauder
McCalla, of the United State steamer
Enterprise, has made a long report of the
secretary ef the navy ou the difficulty
with Morocco. After stating the general
situation aa already published, the com
mander says, while he has do desire to
pass upon the questisn of the equity of
tho nrntprtinn av& involved in the
dispute, he is of the opinion that the
rights of the Lnited States arc TerJ clear
under the treaties, and that they should
be uoheld ao lonz as the provisions of
the treaties are not modified." While the
Moorish officials should not be held to
the' strictest accountability for violation
f conventional rules adjpted by more
highly civilized -nations, it is well to un
derstand that the oriental character is

pA. Consul Lewis has. HtUalla says, in
the interest of conciliation and from the
highest motives, yielded at times when
he was clearly supported by existing
treaties and tnizht with nroprietr have
insisted upon the rights they accorded,
These same rights, it would appear, very
often have not been questioned when the
proteges of any other nation have been
under consideration. "In short," the
commander says, "the rights of the Unit
ed States have been denied us, while the
same rights under tho same conventions
hare been freely accorded to other pow
ers represen ted." He saja the United
States government is at a disadvantage
ou account of the fact that, while all
other powers, parties to tb convention
of 1880 are represented by ministers resi
dent, congress only provides for a consul
for the United States. The commander
thinks if the position could be raised to
a diplomatic one we should go far to
wards preventing questions which fre
quently arise now.

The Bloors of Holland.
In some provinces In Holland there are
large tracts of heath and moorland, which
at present have no value whatever,
although once covered with dense
forests. An effort is now being made to
utilize these moors, and several land
owners have combined to form a company,
whose object it will be to attempt a
gradual fertilization of the soil by replant
ing trees. How much good such an enter
prise can work under careful manage
ment is shown by a similar undertaking
in Denmark, which has been in existence
for the last quarter of a century. The
Danish society for the fertilization of
heaths and moors, chiefly by forestation,
has now some 4,000 members,, among
whom may be found the principal agri
culturists of the kingdom. It enjoys large
subsidies from the- Government and from
the agricultural societies, so that it has
been enabled to start some 400 "conces
sions" or plantations in different parts of
Denmark. In the Netherlands it is pro
posed to work the schhe upon similar
lines. lioston nanscripo.

for they have crude notions of a Supreme

my conceptions alone which had spoiled
Mr. Seebohm's play: but the one thing I
had not taken into consideration in writ

has already been kind to me, may like it
a little better than Mr. Seebohm's? That
might simplify matters."
