to sixteen ounces of silver.
The express companies are still dis

KKHPP PLATE RECEIVES TEST.

round Projectile at 1.800 Feet Per
Armor plate manufactured by the
Krupp process was given its first test
Thursday by the Bethlehem Iron com
pany at its proving grounds, at Bethle
hem, Pennsylvania. Many notable en
gineers witnessed it, besides the Russian
ordnance engineer, who came from Phila
delphia. It was the first test of Krupp
armor of American make and was a
great success. Three shots were fired
from an 8-inch gun, the projectiles
weighing 2.VJ pounds and the velocity
ranging from sixteen to eighteen linn
dred feet per second. The plate was
not cracked. Tho Bethelehem company
has received a big order for this make of
plate from Knssia.
The test case brought on behalf of the
merchants' association in an endeavor to

the stamp tax, which payment has been
evaded by tho express companies, came
' up for argument Saturday in New York
city before Judge Lacombeof the United
States circuit court on the preliminary
motion for an injunction against the
express companies. The case is entitled
"William Crawford against William L.
Hubbell, as treasurer of the Adams Ex

arguments of counsel Judge Lacombe
stated for the purpose of expediting the
case in its course in the United States
circuit court of appeals he would deny
the application for the injunction
against the express companies. The case
will come up in December.

Boxe, Nov. a Russia has taken the
bad in a new effort to help Spain in her
straggle to retain the Philippines, or, in
any event, to prevent the establishment
of 'American rule over the group. The
caw's government has revealed its
scheme through representations to all
the great powers of Europe, with the
possible exception of England. Italy is
one of the powers which Russia desired
to enlist on her aide.
The Italian government was requested
to join in presenting a note to the United
States regarding the control of the Phil
ippines. No information has been
given as to the exact tenor of the pro
posed note, but it is generally under
stood that it would be a request for
leniency toward Spain, with perhaps an
implied threat of intervention.
That Italy is not disposed to accept
this proposition is shown by an inspired
note in the official journal. It declares
that Spain has little hope of gaining any
advantage in retaining the Philippines,
and that the best she will be able to do
is to compromise the matter with the
Madrid, Nov. 8. The Liberal's lead
ing article says the Spansh government
should conclude the negotiations for
peace with the utmost rapidity to avoid
Germany, Russia or any other country
mixing in the question, which would
but mean fresh disasters to Spain. The
article has created a sensation here.
Me New Dovolepaaoata.
Washington, Nov. 8. Peace nego
tiations will be resumed at Paris today
in accordance with the adjournment of
the commission last Friday. In view
of the phase which the agreement be
tween the United States and Spanish
commissioners has reached over the
question of the Philippines it is not
likely 'that any material progress will
be made in the negotiations today.
It is said at the state department that
no report wss received from Judge Day
yesterday and that none is expected
until after today's session. This lack
of information is accepted as an indica
tion that there have been no develop
ments in the situation.
Spain Most Accept.
London, Nov. 8. The Standard says
editorially this morning: "We can see
no alternative. Spain must accept as
inevitable the loss of the Philippines.
No doubt the United States will assume
a heavy and serious responsibility, but
it augers well for the future that the
public men of America appreciate and
are ready to meet it. England will
watch the experiment with every wish
for a favorable issue." The Daily News
wonders whether trouble is brewing in
the Philippines, arising from German
opposition to annexation.
Paris, Nov. 8. The Eclair today, af
ter reproducing all the six articles of
the peace protocol, says: "It is to be
hoped that the United States will not
maintain their first pretensions in re
gard to the Philippine islands. The
question is one, however, which inter
ests Spain only, but Germany from time
to time allows it to be thought that she
is not indifferent to the fate of the
islands and the possibility of interfer
ence from this power will perhaps cause
America to be less exacting."
Me Mete Yet Seat.
Madrid, Nov. 8. The premier, Se
near Sagasta. was questioned today as to
whether it was a fact that the Spanish
government had addressed a note to the
powers asking the latter if they would
support Spain in protesting against "the
intentions of the United States toward
the Philippine islands." He replied
that such a note had not yet been dis
patched. May Be Teresa.
New York. Nov. 8. James B. Ward
& Co., steamship agents of this city,
have received a cablegram from Mr.
Soyer, agent of the firm at Nassau, that
a two-funnel steamer, the name of which
had not been learned, is ashore on Gat
Island, about SO miles from the point
where the Maria Teresa was supposed to
have foundered during a storm. The
stranded steamer may be the warship
or one of the army transports.
Washington, Nov. 8. Navy depart
meat officials feel a long way from cer
tain that the Maria Teresa is really at
the ocean's bottom. As a matter of
tact the fear that she would sink caused
her to be abandoned. It is probable
that a searcher will be sent out to learn
the ship's fate for it is felt she may now
be a derelict.

the event of the inquiry before the court
of cassation proving favorable to Drey
fus, to foment a riotous outburst in the
French capital, to attempt to overthrow
the civil power and to assassinate the
leading champions of Dreyfus.
These reports are confirmed by inter

last night, where for some time they
bombarded the buildings with stones
and injured a young Jewish women
named Esther Hymes and two men
unknown. When the bombardment be
gan families barricaded their doors and
the negroes were unable to enter. They
stoned a dozen stores and houses, de
molishing the windows and mutilating
the buildings. A large detachment of
police was sent to the scene of the riot
and dispersed the negroes, who fled so
rapidly that no arrests could be made.

Worcester, Mass.. Nov. 8. Early
yesterday a posse of citizens of North
Grafton surrounded a gang of burglars
who had broken into a postoffice and
captured two and killed one of the rob
bers. They surrounded the postoffice
and found three men on the outside of
the building. Both the burglars and
citizens opened fire with revolvers and
after some brisk shooting the robbers
fled. Subsequently the dead body of
one of them, apparently a Frenchman,
was found in a field near by. Entering
the building two other burglars were
found and captured.

New York, Nov. 8. The polls opened
at 6 o'clock a. m. and will close at 6
p.m. In Greater New York there are
1,513 election districts and in the rest of
the state 3,222.
Ckmgressman Odell predicts that Col
onel Roosevelt will have a plurality of
60,000 in the state. At Democratic
headquarters State Senator McCarren
said he was confident of VanWyck's,
election by a plurality anywhere frbnv
26,000 to 50,000. Claims as to the state
legislature were as widely at variance
as those regarding the state ticket, the
Republicans, honuvcr, evincing the
greater degree of confidence. No opin
ion as to the result in the congressional
districts could be elicited at either the
Democratic or Republican headquarters.
Each Has SaSlclent Votes.
Philadelphia, Nov. 8. Each of the
leading candidates, Stone (rep.), Jeuks
(dem.) and Swallow (pro. and' const,
govt.), will have a sufficient number, of
votes for election, according jojihe
claims of the respective party leaders.
Aside from these claims the county
representatives indicate a plurality for
Stone, the Republican candidate,- but
with the expected total of 1,000,000
ballots and possible cutting, this predic
tion maybe found incorrect. Jenks,
the Democratic candidate, has the.beue
fit of a harmonized party, the different
factional leaders having been brought
together in his support during the past
month or six weeks. In the congres
sional contests it is generally believed
the Democrats will be successful in four
or five districts now represented by Re
publicans. Mo Trouble at Wilmington.
Wilmington, N. C, Nov. 8. The
spirit of the whites is so determined and
their preparations for an emergency so
. thorough that there now seems small
probability of any general disturbance
here, though there may be trouble of a
minor nature in the First and Fourth
wards, where the negroes poll nearly all
their city vote. The focus of interest
now is the fight' for the state senator
ship, but without any other agency, it
is now conservatively estimated that a
sufficient number of negroes will remain
away from the polls to insure the elec
tion of the Democratic candidate.
Moreover, the Democrats have intimated
that they must have this senator and
this hint is full of meaning. There is
no change in the general outlook in the
state. Indications point unerringly toa
sweeping Democratic success.

New Yokk, Nov. 8. The situation is
extremely mixed and both sides claim a

date, claims he will be elected by 5,000.
The Democrats claim the state for Elvin
W. Crane for governor by from 7,000 to
12,000. Mr. Crane refuses to make an
estimate, but says he feels confident of
election. The legislature is in doubt.
The congressional elections, it is

Cincinnati, Nov. 8. Leaders on both
sides are claiming gaina on congress

Secretary Cortelyoi and General Rus

London, Nov. S. Great Britain's
preparations for armed conflict have
taken a remarkable turn. All troops in
the western district are mobilizing. The
mobilization containing as it does many
crack regiments, is looked upon as
highly important and significant.
Another striking index to the situa
tion is presented by the warlike prepar
ations being made in Italy, which
hitherto have been overlooked in the
rush of complications between England
and France and Russia. The Italian
warships have been ordered to concen

The Italian militate evidently be

England, and it declares that in such an
event the least Italy could do would be
to mobilize her navy and army. Mada
tena island, where the warships are
gathering, is the key to the maritime
defense of Italy.
There' is also the possibility that Ita
ly's activity is a hint to Russia, whose
agents have been irsVguing with the
sultanate of Rahelta, on the Red sea,
which has long been an Italian protectorate.-
A dispatch has been received from
Dover announcing that the French
northern squadron is about to sail from
Brest for a cruise. It is not known
whether this squadron intends to join
the French southern squadron at Toulon.
The British channel squadron is massed
at Gibraltar to watch for any such strat
egic attempt on the part of France.
It is reported throughout London than
Great Britain will be compelled to take
definite action if any reinforcements are
sent to the French colonies.
Dispatches from St. Petersburg state
that the St. Petersburg newspapers
show great irritation at England over the
settlement of the Fashoda affair, and
agree in declaring that her conduct will
arouse the powers interested in the free
navigation of the Suez canal to a com
mon discussion of the best means of
preventing the final establishment of
England in Egypt.
The Novosti says that since the Egypt
ian question is purely of an interna

congress of the powers, which can pro
claim the perpetual neutrality of Egypt
under the protectorate of all the powers.

How the Diamond Kins Saved the Bank
A writer of stories about Barney
Baruato says, iu the Philadelphia Bul
letin, that there is a circumstantially
definite account of his presence iu Paris
during the commune of 1371. In the
utter break up of all social fabric he
fonnd his capacities of n paying order.
For there is little donbt that his was
the craft that enabled the shrewder
commnnardb' to realize the money need

One ri-'y. during tho gloom and stress
of the government siege, the president
of the Bank of France was confronted
by an unkempt mob. The demand was
explicit. They wanted all the gold in
the bank's vaults. The spokesman
flourished a bloody saber and the mob
accentuated the demand by all sorts of
ferocious threats. It was in the height
of thi9 melee that a man who hud been
counseling the financial deputy of the
commune rode up, adorned by a red sash
and other insignia of the terrorists. He
made his way through the vociferous
throng and handed the governor of the
bank a large envelope. While the official
was reading it the besashed emissary
turned to the clamoring nomads and, in
a tongue unknown to the officials and
probably to many of the mob, addressed
them a few sentences. A singular event
followed. A dozen of the ringleaders at
once began haranguing the rioters. In
a few minutes every one of them with
drew. The besashed personage remained
in consultation with the governor and
when it was ended withdrew. An hour
later six covered wagons came to the
bank and were laden with bags such as

mond king in South Africa, a sccro of
the communards, who bad fled from
France, were in exile in the region
where Barnato had cornered the mines.
One day in the plenitude of his afflu
ence he was waylaid, riding in the
Rand, by a company of miners. One of
them, by a few words, succeeded in
gaining his private ear. This man was
known as the most ferocious of the blood
thirsty gang who had taken part in the
killing of the hostages in La Roquette.
He recognized Barnato as the emissary
cent by the commune to the Bank of
France, and the knowledge enabled him
to get in on the ground floor of the dia
mond deal. The tale goes on to tell that
Barnato, who figured as Fejix Barnette.
had fallen desperately in love with a
figurante in the Folies Bergeres just as
the war of 1870 broke out; that be had
lingered iu Paris, became a member of
one of tho "Red" societies, exploited
the ardent patriotism of his coworkers
and succeeded in getting several mil
lions of the cash he had forced from the
Bank of France. The tale, whether
trpe or not, is by no means eo improb
able as the actnaj facts known in the
man's mastery of the African diamond
yields, for to do that he was forced to
put himself against such schemers as
Cecil Rhodes and to contend with
the "dour" shiftiness of the Boers, and
particularly with that astute old fox

THE STEAMER'S CHIMNEY.

Construction and Use.
The stroller along tho wharfs who

of a big steamer a small and at the start
perfectly defined column of smoke which
seemed to come from a small smoke-
pipe within the big ono might wonder
if the great smokestack was filled with
smaller stack?, one for each boiler. As
a matter of fact it is not so filled, but
there is within it a smaller smoke pipo
called the donkey stack, which is tho
chimney for the boiler of the donkey en
gine, which is used when the vessel is
in port in hoisting cargo in and out. It
is from this pipe that the small column
of smoke is seen to issue.
The donkey stack is placed sometimes
against the forward inner side of the big
stack, sometimes against the after inner
side. It may be a complete pipe, or it
may be formed of iron in tho shape of
half a pipe, with flanges riveted to the

uptakes of all these boilers run into tho
great chimney, whoso whole interior is
open, except for the braces running
across it to strengthen and support it
The chimneys of all large steamships,
however, and of many other steam ves
sels as well are built double, with an
inner and an ontcr shell, with a space
between varying according to the size
of the vessel. It may be from five to ten
inches. The primary purpose of this
chamber around the smokestack is to
afford ventilation for the engine room
and the stokehole. In at least ono mod

from the passenger quarters have been
carried to these chambers. Incidentally

"Yon mean the one that begins:

"Yes," she answered, with dreamy,
downcast eyes. "I like that. And it gets
better as you go en. It gets very much
better. There were parts of it that I
could hardly understand at all."
"Oh, yoa flatter me!"
"No, indeed. You ocght to do more

better than the&e little things that sound
