NEW BOARD OF EDUCATION.
An Informal Meriting at Which OfTl-
qprs Arc Belcctrcl The iloat of
Yesterday nnd Knln of
A Board of Trade Mooting.
Last night was the regular monthly
meeting night of the board of trade.
I'ho hour for convening was 8 o'clock ,
tut it was nearly 0 before a quorum
Could bo had. The secretary lost no
time , keeping constantly at work over
Ills books nnd papers , but the other rncm-
hers chafed under the delay. They
snapped the perspiration from their nla-
taster brows , pulled up their sleeves ,
jnifl'ed with the heat and heaved alternate
Blghs for rain nnd ix quorum. One mom-
per was lacking. Mr. Furay' went out
upon the street to secure the much-
granted individual. During his absence
two others sifted out und it looked as if
there would be no meeting. It is pro-
BUtued thov , too , went out to "sco a
Wan , " for they returned with Mr. Fumy ,
nil looking refreshed but still mopping
Up great beads of perspiration with
kerchiefs which bore a trace of
having once been white. At
lust the much-hoped for board member
appeared , and the secretary arose and
f ( called the mealing to order.
'a Mr. Furny occupied the chair. Mr.
Gillcspin , of the Htnto board of correction
and chanties , was heard by the board in
reference to the fourteenth annual con
vention of the national board of correc
tion and , charities , which will meet in
Umaha on August 25. Mr. Gillespio said
that about 50U members would bo in at
tendance , and asked that the board of
trade take some action toward receiving
the delegates. Ex-dovernor Saunders
nlso spoke briefly on the subject. Mr.
Jfuray suggested the propriety of defer-
king nctiou until a fuller representation
of the board could bo secured. President
Jler. who upon entrance assumed the
chair , thought it an exceedingly ditlicult
piatter to secure a large meeting during
the hot weather. After a great deal 61
desultory .discussion , Messrs. Chuso ,
Fleming and Havens were appointed n
committee to act In conjunction with the
local committed of the association of
charities in securing subscriptions
from citizens to assist in receiving the
national board of charities. To facilitate
the" work of the committee it was decided
the board of trade would nay for carriages
for the use of tho'committee. A commu
nication -was received from the Dettcr
Manufacturing company of DCS Moines
to remove their newspaper folding ma
chine factory to this city. They will
bring twenty families to Omaha , and
naked a consideration of f 10,000 to bo
fenado up in ground near a side track.
ID. C. Pratt , of Lincoln , Kas. , n manufac
turer of suspension bridges , also wanted
encouragement to remove his plant to
Ibis city. The communications were re
ferred to the committee on manufacto-
pies , with a recommendation that they bo
eivcn favorable consideration. F. E.
Klaynard , who has n manufactory of
washing machines in Bedford Place ,
jiskcd the board of trade and the general
toublio to visit nnd inspect his factory.
IV committee consisting of Messrs , Mason ,
[ Thomas , DrunorandXininger were np-
ointod to examine the Maynard factory
nd report lit the next regular meeting ,
ilessrs. Fleming and Furry said the in-
ontion of Maynard was meritorious and
is'factory should bo encouraged. II.V. .
nydor , of Chicago , a manufacturer of
lowers , wanted to know what chance
hero was of interesting men of money in
is machines. The communication was
iferrod to the committee on rn ami fact-
roa. The board of trade of Kansas City
* vanted to enlist the board of trade of
praaha to engage in a scheme to arrange
Excursions from the cast to western points
In order to advertise the country. The
proposition was referred to the executive
committee. Champion S. Cnaso < snid
" "corn was king In Nebraska yet , " as he
iiad made n trip of 850 miles throughout
the state but ho had never seen the crops
looking bettor than at present. The
board of directors reported on certain
rules and regulations , but the communl
cation was placed on file until a largci
ineoting could bo secured.

LONDOK , July 11. [ Now York Herald Ca
ble Special to the BED. ] Last week I
mentioned the Invitation of the Ancient nnd
Honorable Artillery company of London to
Its namesake body In Boston , Mas. , to en
joy Ita hospitality this afternoon. The
guests from the latter joined In celebrating
the former's three hundred and fiftieth birth-
day. They were headed br Colonel Henry
Walker , an eminent Boston barrister , and
among the number was also Mayor Cam
bridge. All those "solid men ot Boston"
wore their Hub uniforms. The post regi
ment was commanded by the young Duke of
Portland. Among the reviewing guests
were Lord Kapler , ot Magdala , and
other military nnd naval dignitaries.
When the review ended a banquet followed ,
at which Minister Pliolps aud Consul den-
cm ! Waller sat on the right of the ducal
chairman , and on the loft Colonel Walker. I
fancied the Bostonlans were disappointed
that the soup was mock Instead of real turtle ,
and certainly the lord mayor looked It.JtUut
they did ample Justice to the turbot , soles ,
vihltbalt , Welsh cols nnd Scotch salmon.
Minister Phelps made the response to the
toast , "Tho President , " and gallantly re
membered the queen , while Colonel Walker
gave the answer to the toast of Ills Bunker
11111 corps , spe.iklne with tact and eloquence
to the sincere npplauso of the entertainers.
New York's old resident , John II. Pulstoin ,
M. P. , did the Willey Soulllo speech In re
sponse to the usual toast of "Tho
Visitors. " The thirty-year-old duke
did not oratorlcally shine In

Phelps , but bolng unmarried , nnd the

BKUSSELS , July 11. [ New York lier-
ald Cable Special to the BIRJ : Un
founded reports having reached America
tliattlio mental health of Princess Charlotte ,
widow of Maximilian , was Improving , I yes
terday visited the village of Bucbart , which
is live miles from hero , where sue has resided
sluce the burning down of her residence at
Tervuern three years ago. There was a re
ligious procession which , according to the
old custom , lias taken place since two centu
ries ago every second Sunday in July. The
procession , with statues of the saints * and
virgin , proceeded ns usual to the chapel
liouelm at the castle. Princess Charlotte
witnessed the sight from a window cngcd in
by thin bars , ladles in waiting holding each
of her hands bodily. She rvppiiared
well , though becoming very gray.
She wore a mauve silk dress and a white cap
that she believes is the same she wore at the
time of Maximilian's death. On the pas
sage of each statue she nodded her head ab
sently , in a doll-like mechanical way , and
when the procession was fading away fol
lowed it with her eyes. Her appearance and
the Information I next gat hoi ed on the spot
show thnt her mental condition 'is becoming
worse rather than better. The queen of the
Belgians , the king and the Count of Flan
ders frequently visit her , the latter spending
at least two days at liuchart every fortnight.
But tho.nuecn no longer cares to taue Char
lotte driving as she did frequently before.
Charlotte never goes out but in the park ot
the castle with a watchful body guard. She
sometimes stops and stares before an enclos
ure where the sick horses from the queen's
stable are sent to recuperate and to run about
in freedom , hut generally her solo occupa
tion during the walk Is picking up ncacln
leaves , which she puts on her hand and then
blows oir ono by one. Despite the kindest
treatment all hope of her mental recovery is
THE LAND 1I1LL.
Discussed at Length In the House ol
LONDON , July 11 In the commons this
evening , Balfour , chief secretary for Ireland ,
tn moving the second reading of the Irish
land bill , said it was merely an amendatory
bill , ono trying to remedy the Injustice which
experience had shown arose under the acts
of parliament of 1S70 and 1871. It brought
the lease holders under the acts of 1681 and
1833 , thus completing the work of Gladstone ,

Chamberlain strongly urged the house not
to reject this temporary effort at a sot tinmen t ,
and at the sanui time asked the government
whether the time had not come to consldci
the position of the landlords , who were hard
pressed by the burden ot family and othoi
charges created when the land was more

was sent to the United States by the
Chinese government in 1883 , together
with a number of other Chinese boys of
high birth to be educated. He was then
a very young boy. Ho spent five years

American institutions , or an American
girl , perhaps , was so strong that in 188-1

the various receptions and was fre

but they found that they could not make
the Chinese go , no matter how hard they
