Al JDierks, a Madison man, hung bis
vest on the llmu of a tree, and when he
came to look for it found it missing.
A search resulted In finuing the vest
near by, but $20 in money and a gold
watch were missing. He suspected
two boys who had been with him, and
wore out a warrant for their arrest.
The arrest created some excitement,
and as nothing was found in the
pockets of the boys it was suggested
that a search be made near where the
Teat bad been picked up. The search
was made and the money and watch
found on the ground. The verdict
rendered was that a cow had caught
her born in the vest and scattered the
contents promiscuously around.

Good MitBf mDt Comblatd,
New York. June 30. - Good luok,
more than good management, served to
avert a catastrophe on the bound. The
Fall Itiver Line steamer Puritan, with
500 passenger on board, besides a crew
numbering fully 100, was run into by
the coal schooner Wells, bound for
Newport with coal. Twety-five ?eet of
the Puritan's guard-rail, aft the wheel,
on the starboard side, was carried away,
and the schooner's bowsprit crashed
through the steamer's side, tearing a
great hole in the woodwork which
formed the v all of the barber shop.
Happily the blow was a glancing one
or it might have been necessary to
chronicle another one of the disasters ;
by which so many lives have been lost '
recently. I
The collision occurred at 12:40o'clock. I
The Puritan was just otf Fisher's Is- i
land at the time, and was going half,
ipeed during the dense fog that pre. j
vailed. Most of the passengers had re- j
tired and only a few persons were on
deck. Ihe crash came without tbe
slightest warning. The lookout on the
Puritan declare that they were on the
alert, and that not a sound was heard
nor was a light is eight thirty seconds
before the collision. The shock brought
the sleepy passengers trooping out of
their staterooms, and for a few
moments it looked as If a panic would
ensue. Fortunately, Captain Davis and
the other officers were able to cotrol the
fears of the frightened people, and the
excitement was over before anything
lake a panic took place.
The Puritan's officers had consider
able difficulty, however, in quieting the
fears of fifteen young women from the
Boston conservatory of Music, who
wera on their way to New York. As
soon as the steamer's headway could be
stopped the Wells was shoved off. It
was then seen that the schooner's bow-
spirit and head gear had been carried i
away. A hasty examination of the
Phritan's hull showed that no damage"!
had been done to it, and lines were got
out and made fast to the schooner.
She was towed to Jew Loudon by the 1
Puritan and the steamer then pro
ceeded on her way to New York. Cap
tain Davis lays the blame to theskipper
of the schooner, which gave no warn
ing by fog horn or otherwise.
The Strike In Omaha.
Omaha, Neb., June 30. Trains wltn
Puiltnan cc -s attached were made up
in Omaha but with a definite under
standing that they would never be per
mitted to complete the trip as A. H. U.
men elswhere would detach them. The
400 members of the order here have re
ceived no ins-ructions to strike but ex
pect tbem soon. The circular issued
by General Grand Master Sovereign of
the Knights of Labor adds lo the com
plexity of the situation, and there is n
denying that the members of the A. R.
U. hereabouts have been gratly
strengthened in their boycott by reason
of the pronounced stand taken by the
Knights of Labor, who are usually
Btrong In Omaha. For a time the
Knights of Labor lost ground in this

San Fraj.h, July 2. The United
press correspondent, writing under date
of Honolulu, June 23, says upon the
arrival of the Australia on the 16th
Mii S'-r Willis promptly sent to this
government a letter from secretary
Grrsham which reported tne sonata res
olution ou Hawaii passed Mar 31, and
concluding wi h the following expres
sion. "The declaration that the people of
the islauds have the right to establish
em. maintain such institution as they
thi ik best adapted to their wants Is en
tirely satisfactory to the president."
Great satisfaction at this communica
tion was expressed by the supporters of
the government, it being the first re
port of official declaration from the
United states government of their in
tention not to interfere with the In
ternal affairs of Hawaii.
Tne constitutional convention whioh
began on Juu 4, Us actual work in re
vising the draft of the new constitution
submitted by the government, com
pleted its first readmg Jnnt 19, the last
four working days having been oc
cupied in acting upon the reports of
committers upon the various articles
submitted to them.
It is fully expected that the second
reading will be completed during the
week, and ihat the constitution will be
ready for its final pat-sage soon. The
proposition has been made, and is en
thusiastically supported, to have the
constitiou oC.ciaily promulgated as the
law of the land upon the coming of
tb.) 4ih of July and thus make the
birthday of the new republic of Hawaii
coincide with that of American inde
peudence. The leading points ot the
constitution receiving severe discus
sion may be given as follows:
There was a strong difference of
opiuiou about the propriety or the
riiibt of the convention to declare Dole
president of the republic for the first
term of six years. President Dole him
self urged the submission of the sub
ject to popular election by the voters.
The ex-queen sent to each of the rep
resentatives of loreigu powers an em
phatic protest against their recognition
of the expected republic of Hawaii,
calling their attention to the alleged
fact tiiat she is still the rightfnl ruler

cils held since the arrival of the official
announcement by the United States
government. The first copy was sent
to Minister Willis. He declined to re-
ceive it, greatly to the consternation of
the royalists. It is probable that the
j attitude of the other diplomats will be
I the same, with the exception of the
British minister. This action of the
queen will be considered in the cabinet

Urcssels, July 2. A love affair
ended in this city in murder tind suicide.
A young Roumanian officer, who was
a student iu a military school here, fell
in lovft with a handsome girl, a native
of Brussels. His passion was seem

that the girl was playing him false.
While promising constancy to the
Roumanian, she was holding intimate
relations wlh au elderly Belgian oilicer
of high rank. The Roumanian in some
manner learned of the relation be

and the knowledge drove him into a

part of the managers, which will fail

"It is unfortunate 'hat the conditions
have become such as to force the labor

encroachments upon their personal
rights, but it is corporation greed and
avarice that Una brought us to the

who are to blame. Matters have long
been working to this climax and unless
something is speedily done 1 look to
see the country plunged into a desperate
