Halibut In IMentj.
The fishing schooner Surprise, Captain
James Dell commanding, which sailed
from Astoria in Novemlier for the pur
pose of irospecting the coast of Alaska
and the Alexander archiielngo in Iioih-s
of finding Kinks where halibut could be
taken dnring tho winter, returned to
Astoria Saturday. She cruised around
till April, visiting every joint where
there was a prosjiect of finding halibut
and setting trawls in many places with
out success until on the th of April, af
ter rounding Cape Chacon, on Prince
E1 ward island, the most southwesterly
Ioint of Alaska, the first run of halibut
The tish were so plentiful and easily
caught that Captain Dell, foreseeing his
supply of ice was to run short, hove

which was reached after a two days'
run, ami 0:1 the I-th, with the h'old full

tho Surprise again off Caio Chacon,
(standing off and on, with set lines and
trawls out. and the sea fairly alive with
halibut. Some idea can be formed as to
how plentiful the fish were from the
fact that in two days Captain Drll, hi
two sons and an Indian caught, cleaned
and packed in the ice ten and a half toud

Statne of Coiiimbtm for Santo Domingo.
The Ames Manufacturing company
has received tho contract for a large
bronze statue of Christopher Columbus
to bo erected at ancient Isabella, on the
island of Santo Domingo, where Colum
bus iu:ub his first settlement. The idea
was conceived by Thomas II. Cummins,
of Doston, and has been carried through
a Catholic newspaper in that city. The
statue was made from designs of K.
Andrew of the State Normal Art school,
ami the model was prepared by Alois
Dnyens, of Ghent. The statue repre
sents Columbus standing with the left
hand extended npward in thanksgiving
while tho right points to the first settle
ment in the New World on a sphere
The figure is 8 feet and 2 inches high
and will be mounted on a pyramid of
coral and limestone 12 feet high, which
will be crowned with a capstone of
dressed granite. The people in charge
of the monument have been given the
land necessary for the foundation of the
monument, and the republic of Santo Do
mingo has agreed fo allow the importa
tion of the statue and the foundation
free of duty and to care for the memorial
as public property. Cor. Springfield
A Relic Found In a Iliver.
While Edgar Dates, a geologist, of
Angola, was prospecting in Jackson
county, llich., he discovered in a stream
a peculiarly marked stone, rudely cut
by a blunt instrument. With the aid of
a microscope he was able to decipher an
inscription running to this effect: "Sam
uel Dernet: I was taken by the Indians
near Sandnsky, and I expect never to
reach that place. If my friends I
am to be burned. April 16, 1809." The
stone on which this was engraved was a
peculiar kind of slate, of which none
exists in Michigan, and Mr. Bates is
confident that the relic is genuine and
of high value. Philadelphia Ledger.

Nearly 0IOO.OOO.OOO Tear.
Mr. James Wright, second vice presi
dent of the Inmau line, says that .when
the end t 1W2 comes at. least 100,000
Ieoplo will hj,ve:' kft for Europe from
all parti of this country duriug tho
year. Half of them will sail during the
fifteen weeks rif the seasorrr from April
to AngiL-1. Some travelers will carry
hundred of dollars in their ocketlxoks
to spend where others carry thousands.
Nine-tenths of those hundreds ami thou
sands will bo transferred to foreign own
ers lefore the tourists return.
Even the money spent for passage and
during the voyages must 1 counted in
that whit h bids goodby to this land of
liijerty, for the great steamship compa
nies are, with one exception, foreign
corporations. Including tips and fees
these corjiorations will take an average
of $100 from each p;issenger for tho
round trip. The majority will pay less,
but there will le enough rich men who
who pay a good deal more to bring the
mean amount up to that figure.
The money which each tourist carries
with him is harder to estimate. A for
eign exchange clerk said that the letters
of credit issued by them to European
travelers average about C0O. or 3,000
each; but this is above tho ordinary fig
ure, and of course this in many cases
covers a party of four or five. Eight
hundred dollars is estimated as the aver
age amount taken by each passenger in
the cabin. This makes the total average
expenditure of the average European
traveler $!00. When this is multiplied
by the estimated total of these travelers
the result is astounding.
It is $06,000,000.
Ninety-six millions of dollars carried
from America to Europe in a single year
by travelers alone! If this were saved
for a few years Uncle Sam might buy a
good slice of Europe aud bring it over
here for exhibition purposes. New
The Lenten offerings of the Sunday
school children of the Protestant Episco
pal church throughout the United States
thus far received in behalf of the gener
al board of missions are largelj' in excess
of those for tho same period in 1S91. In
the two weeks immediately succeeding
Eiister 1,137 Sunday schools sent in SOi!,
CJ, and it is believed a total of $100,000
will have been received when all of tli9
4,000 schools in the country shall have
leen heard from. This is double the
sum donated last year.
The Lenten Sunday school offering is
a feature of the work of the board of
missions. Ju.-t before Lent this year the
board sent a package of folding paste
board savings banks to each Sunday
school superintendent for distribution
among his pupils for the reception of the
children's savings during the fasting sea
son. No sooner liad Easter passed than the
little banks l?gan to arrive at the offices
of the board in the Bible House.

Rothley Temple, Lord Macaulay's
birthplace, is for sale by public auction.
It is an old manor house, some six miles
from Leicester, and there the historian
was born at the end of the year 1800. It
cannot be said that Rothley Temple de
rived more than nominal luster from
the association, for Macaulay left Leices
tershire before he had left infancy,
and Birchin Lane, in the city, was the
home of his earliest childhood. Instead
of a manorial park he had Drapers' gar
dens for a playground, until he went to
live in the old High street at Clapham.
The Leicestershire manor, however,
has many historical interests besides this
one, and a Thirteenth century cliapel of
the Knights Templars is attached to the
estate. It is a wealthy manor, too, for
900 acres produce 2,000 of annual rent;
and, moreover, it is at the headquarters
of the famous Quorn Hunt, and in the
heart of some famous scenery. London
Coat of an Epidemic
Dr. Thresh, the medical officer for the
county of Essex, having obtained full
returns of the late epidemic of influenza,
estimates that no less than 540 persons
died under the immediate attack, and
that no fewer than 1,400 deaths occurred
in the county from its direct or indirect
influence. The monetary loss for the
two months during which the epidemic
prevailed he states at no less than 50,
000, on the basis of the loss of wages of
adults calculated at twelve shillings a
week. He adds: "I am, however, afraid
that had the county suffered from an
epidemic among cattle, causing in the
time the same number of deaths and in
dicating the same pecuniary loss, the
alarm produced would have been greater
and more permanent. British Medical
A 100,000 Pound Chip of a Rock.
A stone quarry company of Bedford,
IniL, has shipped the largest 6inglo
block of stone ever quarried and shipped
in the United States. The block was 12
feet 8 inches long, 6 feet 3 inches high
and 6 feet 3 inches wide, containing 500
cubic feet, and weighed 100,000 pounds.
The car on which it was shipped had to
be ordered specially for it, and was the
car that was built for the purpose of
transporting the thirty-foot cannon sent
by the government to the Pacific coast a
few months since. The stone is perfect,
not having a flaw or defect. Indianapo
