which swept the luke Involves a greater loss
of llfo than any of the previous disasters on
the lake this hcnson , not excepting that of
the propeller Champlaln which was burned
cnily in the spring off Clmilovolx , drowning
twenty-four poisons. A most singular coin
cidence is Unit the Vernon was the vessel
which took the phico of the Chnmplaln in the
Northern Michigan line and had only been
on the line since August 1. She was ono of
the finest furnished passenger boats on Iho
lakes and had a valuation of T8KX ( ) . Captain
Moran , of the steamship Supeiior , which ar
rived hero at 8:30 : o'clock , biought the flrst
news of the wreck.

Iho llnal llgures of Saturdaj' last , but in the
ntei nn there wasnpcuod of Ihnmcss and
in advance of IK ® points in lending
shines This gave i iso to the belief among
the bull fratcrnitj' that the bottom had been
i cached and that the market was on the road
to peiinancnt impiovemcnt , an opinion that
was sticnglhcned bj' some homo bujmg
for investment nnd heavy purchases
for foreign accounts. The receivership busi
ness actual in the case of the Chesapeake
& Ohio , and meicly an unfounded tumor In
that of the ICansas & Texas was a factor
Unit stopped the advance and led to a Iato 10-
nclion. Heading , Western Union , New En

sented n stronger fiont than most other

not attended with much success. The weak

adcpiesslng influence on the geiiei.il list.
The good feeling which prevailed at one time
was quite pionounced in raihoad bonds , and
the demand for these showed a perceptible
increase at advancing pi ices. The inquliy

Iho rumor of a receiver for Iho Kansas &
Tevas came out and later on was followed by
the announcement that application had been
made for a receiver for the Chesapeake &
Ohio , the ostensible reason given being that
it was ncccssai j' in older to adjust Iho float

to tlio ilsing tendency , ns in the euso o )

"President Cleveland has returned from a
roj al progress tin ough the states the most
popular man in America , and the most
successful piesldent slnco Lincoln. Tour
yeais ago he was hnully Known bcjond
the borders of his own stato. Tliiee years
ago ho was fighting his way to the piesl-
dcncy tin ough a stoim of disgraceful and mi-
dcscivcd obloquy unparalleled even In the
pcisonaUticsof American polities. His hon
esty , his modesty , his coin-ago and his loyalty
to public duty me qualities which have con
quered the esteem ol his countrj men. These
qualities have probably not served so well
with the professional managers of the
ileniocratlc party , many of whom liavo been
seandall7Cil to ilnd that their candidate
actually meant what ho professed , but Mr.
Cleveland will to all appearances live down
ho disaffection of a section of his supporters
as ho has lived don the rancor of his op
ponents. If the democrats wish to score an

ilm ngalp for the piesideney. If they fall to
do so the chances nro that ho will bo noml-
: iatcd , possibly oven elected by the Inde
pendent men of all pai tics ,
"It Is to bo hoped that a personal acquaint
ance with President Cleveland will have a
beneficial effect on Mr. Joseph Chamberlain.
Thcio Is a certain similarity in the caiccr , if

are mugwumps , i. c. , men \\lio have broken
away from stiict paity lines , although Mr.
Cleveland Is not so much a mug-

The kaiser ran the musical gauntlet without
any appaicnt injuiy to his neives ; certalnlj
with bi avery , for , so fur I could sec , hi
did not once \ \ nueAs his mlijestj
stepped fiom the train the cannon of tin
castle on the height above the tovu-rbegai
to thunder. At the same menu nt a i cd Ugh
was so binned as to give a view of the whoh
castle outlined In iliiiuo. Gtofo-Stulbeig one
his oldest son met the kaiser , the founcr returning
turning in the imperial closed uari lageihlel
with n bed had been seiit fiom Beilln , the
latter with Prineo < William in an opci
laui.tge. As the oairiagesound a\\aj
aiound the hill on the summit of which tin
castle is , there was a continual dlschaigo o
cannon with a clover UH.O of K'ligal mote
light up that portion of the walls for the mo
input in vluw. Inside , in tlio unut'jiid , th
counts huntsmen had been \\aitlng fora 1ml
hour. At the top of Ihc cabtlc tower n mqi
hthl the Imperial fctatulnrd icady' to bo iluni
'out nnd up , na the Uajter came. Insliloth
walls opiM itQ , Happed the coOnt'b blaej : am
jellobanner. . Below lackejain b.lack nm
ellow ran about carrying oidera nnd
a crowd of people , mainly the wives
mil daughters of Count Stalbcrg's dcsccml-
nijts , lined the steps of the gallery leading
o the castle chapel. Many bright uniforms
lllcd the quaint old court yard , but It was a
Implo crowd for all that ,
"Anna , " called one of the count's officials ,
nnd "Anna" having hern foujid , some family
stalls were ai ranged between them thcro
\ Ithout nnj ono smiling nt the Incident. The
oresters threw aside their gray o\erconts
and stood In their green nnd gold uniforms ,
thereupon rushed dow n an anxious wlfo to
nslst that her gray-hall cd husband should
vear his overcoat which , by the way , ho did.
Outside , the mllltaiy band began to play ,
'Hclldcrlm Seger Tianc. " A little ghl
lanced to a window clapping her hands with
excitement , Inside the castle the guests , In-
ludlng half a dorcn princes and princesses
and a dozen counts , slowly collected. At the
nalncouityiird enhance up went the Im-
MMial stand.ud , the led tire llamcd out
uddenly , the huntsmen began their loud
> uglo greeting , and two mounted toich-
leaieis , with llainlng toiches , cnino clattcr-
ng through the high arched enhance. Be-
ilnd them was a four-horsed coach with out-
ider. In a moment both carriages weio bo-
foio the door and Prince William hud sprung
out , thiowlug his cloak to a servant who
teed near. \ \ hllo Count Stalbcrg helped the
falser to alight. Altogether itas as quaint
a piece of medievalism ns could bo hoped for.
So successful , in fact , that , although 1 hud
) ccn wnincd to notice the forest call which
ho fotcsteis wcio bugling within ten feet of
ny cats , I not only failed to catch the note of
ho air , but in addition disgraced myself by
not knowing , when asked , that they went on
bugling when the kaiser had cnteied the
court yard. At 0 came the dinner of Jlfty-slx
covers. There wcio moio candles than
silver , very pi city llowcr decora-
Ions and excellent music. Be-
ilnd each two chairs stood a symphony
n black and gold who condescended to pass
he dishes. The chief sitnphony even woio
a genuine swoi d and looked quite capable of
using It on his suboidlnato waltcis instead of
on the beef. As the kaiser rose from dinner
a cannon shot caused the lighting of flics on
every hill Iniow. . The castle windows , ns
the castle is high up , look out over the rolling ,
thickly inhabited foothills of the Haitz
mountains. The view can be imagined when
each hilltop was eio\\ncd with a big bontlrc
and cveiy village nnd town , families aiound ,
btightly illuminated with candles at every
window.
For two w ecks sixty men had been nt work
under command of Count Zen Stulbeig's
'oicstcis putting up fences and netting
o foico tlio game to pass
jcforo the hunteis' rillcs. On Tuesday
before dajlight 100 men were already
jusy getting the game well In hand in the
jig forest fields Into which the animals had
been driven two weeks before. At 11 Prince
William and all except the kaiser hud already
lad un horn's shooting in ono part of Grof
Stolberg's 200,000 aero hunting estate. At 12
: ho rendezvous for the kaiser's paity was
crowded with hunters , huntsmen beaters ,
and dogs bef01 e n big open air fire. Prince
William , with twenty-two comrades of his
morning's hunt , were seated on convenient
little stools which folded up into walking
sticks when not used as scats. Next them
the foresters were gathered with their bugles
glos icady ; a llttlo fuither off a pack of
hounds yelling and fighting whenever their
chains and the whips allowed.
The emperor drives up , is greeted by bugle
blasts which cause every dog in the pack to
howl , nnd by cheers , of course. Ho then
stops for a moment to bo photogiaphcd , sit
ting wrapped in fur in his carriage , with the
background of hunters and huntsmen's dogs.
Afteiwardshomo\eson to his hunting sta
tion , while the other hunteis stung out m
all diicctlons to their places. Each hunter
stands behind a low screen of cvergi eon with
him. The men load his rifles and locate his
wounded gamo. The kaiser , however , stands
under a canopy of e\ergieen boughs. Iho
game , deer and wild swine , is hunted out of
the big cntianco by the beateis and dogs ,
passes tin ough ono of two gates , in front of
ono of which the empcior stands , while
at the opposite gate is Prmco Wil
liam's stand of fences and nets at
either edge of n half circle to keep the game
In bounds. It i uns the gauntlet of successive
rifles but the succession of shooters fiom two
to tlueo hundred yuids apart keep the game
fiom escaping too quickly behind the huutcis
\ \ hci e two half cii clcs of shootei s meet. The
game coming in opposite dlicctlous is forced
behind all the riflemen. The hunteis , of
couise , shoot only towuids the outer ciicum-
fcrcnco of the cliclo. Altogether it is a good
deal Jiko the hunting scene in the oidinary
thcatiical version of Faust except that the
animals , in their wild lush , do notmuko a full
eiiele.
Theioisa bugle call answered fiom the
shooting stations as a dozen \cntuisomo wild
boais , hoping for better ueorus , nro making
a rush together. The kaKcr flies
as fast us his lelbjager can hand him gu'i -
Ono big pig drops in his tiacks with a ciash ;
another rushes on for a few j ards and then
chops head llrst , lipping up the earth with
his tusks. Thofoieshouldeisof a third nic
badly wounded and ho dodges behind the
line of shootei s , but is noted by Chief For
ester Mueller's quick ear. Accordingly he
is later diaggcd out and added to the kaiser's
tiophles. A couple go back to tiy their luck
at a moio fiuoiablo point. The icst , scared
out of their piggish wits , niobojond sight
di aw Ing the next hunter's lire. Before the
smoke has cleaicd away a deer follows
skin ii ing past at such aiatothat a quick eye
and steady aim aio both necessary if they aie
to bo stopped In tiansit. Filing becomes
general all around the circlo. E\ciy once in
a while comes the frantlo squealing of s
wounded or dog-bitten pig. Every where Is
heaid the shouts of the hunters , The hounds
gctneaiertho seated animals left in the en
closure. The pigs and deer tun past together ,
Finally , when all the beasts aio fi antic will :
fear and some have run the gauntlet tw ice ,
jou begin to BCO nothing except ttieaks ol
black in such rapid motion that the succcs
sive plgh look bomowhat as if they had mcltcc
Into an endless belt of pigs. The deer bolnf
taller and of a diffcteut color m o moro easily
distinguished. The kaiser flics often but
with excellent aim and good icsiilts. Bcsldi
him stands his llebjagcr , ready to shooi
any wounded beast which migh
otherw iso escape and suflcr for dnjs in tin
thofoiost. Finally , after an hour of shoot
ing , n hoi n is souudcd fiom the kaiser' :
blattar , answered fiom all the othcib and tin
shooting btops , Giof Stulborg comes to tin
cmpeior and they chat standing together litho
the snow the w hilo. The kalsei's killing li
laid out for examination. To a question eon
cciningn jojalstag whlih got by the impc
pet Itil shooter Grof Stalbcrg , with consider
able pi ide , biinga up his bon , who made thi
bcbt kill of the day , Tlio k lscr , uitcxhaustei
by the spoil and notafiatd of the cold o
snow , stands for a moment laughingly threat
eulng the young man for having beaten 'hi '
imperial master , ' .
As an evidence of his rcmarljablo memory
in addition to what this hunt proves of hi
health , Is au incident of th < ] Icuisci's nv
Ival. A joung oftlccr stood to greet the
atscr.
Q"Wlmt Is your nnniol" the emperor asked.
"Brancom , your majesty. "
"Your father was colonel of suchaicgi-
icnt In 1SI5I"
Yes , jour majesty. "
" 1 remember him very well. "
Then all drive homo. Afterwards , In the
\cnlng , the villagers gathered in the castle
ourtjard. The ceventj'-slx victims of the
ay are laid out In long row s. The beatei s
\itli torches line the sides of this cxhlblton
f game at ono end , the foresters bugling
arlous calls , Behind them their dogs ,
mu ling and lighting. At the other end is
lie kaiser , ut a window bowing his thanks
or the cheers which erect him. Gentlemen
n full diess and ladles with fur tin own over

lie tows of dead animals. That ends the
ay's hunting.
