* At 5:45 : the business meeting ot the leagtto
was hold and resolutions endorsing the mos-
ago of President Cleveland were unanl-
inously adopted. Officers were then elected ,
after which the party proceeded to the ban
quet hull. When the gentlemen , to the num
ber of 312 , were seated , Uov. James Freeman
Clark , V , D. , invoked a dlvlno blessing.
After the banquet Hon. James
Lowell rapped the meeting to order.
In the courao of his address Lowell was In
terrupted frequently by storms of applause.
At his flr t reference to president Cleveland ,
Dr. William Everett , Jr. , proposed three
chcora for Cleveland , which were given with
a will. Lowell , in the cOurse of his remarks , '
said : "Ono of the reasons th.it chlolly sug
gested the opportuneness of our coming to
gether here has boon the president's message
at the opening of the present congress. Per
sonally , I confess that I f ol inysclf'stroncly
attracted to Cleveland as the best representa
tive of the higher typo of Americanism
that wo hnvo seen siuco Lincoln was
snatched from us. liut wo arc not
hoie to thank him as the ho.ul of a purty. Wo
are hero to felicitate each other tlmt the
presidential chair hns n nwn in it , nnd this
means tlmt c\ cry word ho Hays is weighted
With what ho Is. Wo iiro hero to felicitate
each ether tlmt this man understands politics
to mean business , not Cale.inery , plain speak
ing , not puller-eg with us in a double sense ;
tlmt he hi > nad the courage to tell the truth
to tJ , count ! y without regard to personal or
Y > arty consequences , and thus to remind us
Unit a country not worth telling the truth to
Is not worth living in , nuy , deserves to
hnvo lies told it nnd to tnko the Inevitable
consequences In the calamity. Our politics
call loudly for a broom. Cleveland , 1 think ,
has found the broom nnd begun to ply it.
* * * Ho has shown us that there was
such n thing us being protected too much and
that wo had protected our shipping interests
so effectually that they had ceased to bo pro
tected by ceasing to exist. In thus limiting
the field of his warning nnd his counsels ho
has done wisely , and wo shall do Wisely in
following his example.
Senator Morgan , of Alabama , said : "Sec
tional lines of distinction no longer exist , and
Wo arc at last ono people. I object to that
system which wrings money from the j copla
to bestow upon political n p.iiitlons , bo they
frit-lids or otherwise. The questlou is , shall
we cut do\vu Hie revenue to our wants , or
sho.ll tvo keoj ) this revenue year after year ,
fir shall we dry up the sources of this rev
enue nnd stop this wrong to the country ? "
Congressman Breckenridge , of Kentucky ,
snid : "Protection is never healthy nor in
the long run profitable any more than fever
ish strength fid restlessness produced by
stimulants is evidence of health. The present
rates of taxation are unequaled ,
onerous . and hurtful to the mass of
those employed in \ ho indiistt ios pi ofcsscdly
noughtto bo protected , and so far OK taxation
i unnecessary for the necessities of govern
ment , -economically administered , It Is un
justly Imposed nnd illegally gathered from
the people. 'A reduction of tnvution and rc-
vision of the tariff must be made gradually
nnd cautiously , with the constant remem
brance that systems long cstabliscd cannot
In ? rondily changed and that grave practical
difficulties lie in the path of rniy reform.
In the nature of the case nil protective tariffs
must have an element-of Instability and un
certainty. There iiro a few to whom this
system is indeed x honiui'af to nit others it
is nn injury and wrong. "
Congressman Wilson , of West Virginia ,
Congressman Uogoro , of Arkansas , and oth
ers followed in brief addresses.
Governor Hill's Surprise Party.
ALTUXT , N. Y. , Dec. 20. Something of a

Its KinploybM Btlll Complicated.
PITT'MIIIIU , Dec. 20. A promtilcnt offlclnl
of the Pennsylvania comimny.slittcd to n ro-
iwrtcr that whllo there wus no truth In the
rumor of n strike on their system , the men
had ie < iticstcdnn advance In wages. The re
quest came m the nature of a petition nnd not
as u demand. Ho could not say whether It
would be granted or not , but ho felt confident
there would bo n strike. A conference has
been arranged between the railway ofllcluls
and their employes looking to u settlement.
Pilil.ADELl'iitA. Ded. 20. Ofllcers of the
Heading railroad company ami the committee
of the Knights of Labor came together again
this morning and parted after n short but
stormy session. Chairman Leo and Ben *
nett , member of the executive committee of
the knights , called at the offlco of the
company tins morning nnd Rent In
their names.'to Superintendent Swclgard.
Leo informed a reporter that the committee
had called In response to a request of the
superintendent. Superintendent Swelgard
said ho would talk to Lee alone , but Leo said
Honnett and himself Avero' members of the
executive committee and that' tire superin
tendent would hnvo to talk to both of them or
not at nil. 'Swclgard said ho refused to
recognise any committee , Whereupon Leo and
Leo was afterwards discharged from the
Uniformed policemen guard every entrance
to the Port Richmond coal wharves. There
has been no tioublc of any kind. All trains ,
both passenger and freight , moved as usual.
TUo vanguard of the delegates to the con
vention of the Heading railroad employes , to
bo held in this city to night , arrived this
forenoon. Every local assembly of the
Knights of Labor in' the anthra
cite region , embracing the Schuyl-
klll , Lehigh and Wyoming regions ,
will bo fully represented nnd the meeting
will be ono Of the most important that has
been held for a long time , as it will dccido
whether the Knights of Labor will pool their
issues in the fight und .stand together or let
tbo rnllioad men light their own battles.
New YOIIK , Dec. 20. Austin Corbin , piesl-
dent of the Heading railroad , defined the po
sition of the company to wauls its employes
in a letter sent at nooli to day U > McLcod ,
general manager , with instructions to com
municate Its contents to the men. In It ho
says : "To such of our old employes who
Imvo stood faithfully by up wo feel
obliged mid " thankful , and shall
not forget them , butttio time has
now arrived when all'of our employes
will bo require/I to dccido whetiier they ex
pect to retain their places by reason of hoycst
uw' ' faithful service und prompt obedience to
orders of the company that employs them nnd
pays them , or blind obedience to
the direction of the Knights of Labor
tnroiiKh which organisation the loaders
hope to cpurco us into .employment of men
\ \ lie consider the flrst obedience duo to that
order. Men that stand by us will have
employment with rpasomiblo hours and
good pay. Men who do not will never
bo allowed on the road nga'.n under
nny circumstances. We have never objected
to labor organizations and do not not now.
Every man shall bo free to belong to ono or
not as ho pleases , but orders cjinnot nnd shall
not dictato'to this company ns to whom it
shall employ or how to operate its property.
HDAIUNO , Pa , Dec. 20. Two hundred and
fifty delegates representing the Heading r.iil-
roiul and coal nnd iron company's employes
met hero to-niplit. The majority of delegates
present seemed to think that the strike on
the railroad was for most part over , nnd tlmt
the convention should dcvoto itself to doing
the best it could for the miners , unless the
men In this city should rccansider their for
mer action not to blriUo.
The Secret ol' tbc Strike.
Nnw Yonic , Dec.20. . The Evening Sun
says : "Though the strike on the Rending
system seemed to como suddenly , yet re
liable information indicates thu t it is part of
a long conceived policy dictated by Powderly
nnd these who net with him. The Heading
system was not the ono originally aimed at
by Powderly. In fact ho wus pretending to
be friendly with that system-so that ho
might usetit nnd his.strength among its em
ployers as a rinb to boat the other railway
systems of Pennsylvania. Some time ago
Powdcl ly decided to boycott- , every road in
Pennsylvania except the Heading. Secret
orders were sent out Instructing very as
sembly to carry out this boycott , but these
orders were transmitted id n different man
ner from all previous or tiers to boycott. In
stead of sending out an official circular , he
dispatched agents to many parts of the coun
try to request that all frcightthat was possible
should bo diverted from -other roads and
shipped over the Heading. In this way
ho hoped , to boycott the Pennsylvania , Le-
high Valley nnd other roads secretly. The
strike on the Heading is taken by these arc
on the inside as indicating the failure of the
IxiycotU They did not get the freight and
passengeis for the Heading- that Powderly
intended. It was the executive board's pur
pose , after dlvci ting this business to the
Hen ding , to demand certain- things of the
managers. Failing in this they ordered a
strike in hopoxif gaining- stopping trains
what could -not bo got otherwise. It is a
curious thing that the alleged cause of the
fitriko is because the employes were asked hy
the company to hundlo some of the vciy
freight ttio boycotters had caused to bo di
verted to the Heading.

Another Short Ijlne Between St. Jo *
Hcph and ChlcaKo-
St. JOSEPH , Mo. , Deo. 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKH. ] Mr. W. A. P. McDonald ,
president of the St. Joe extension of the ,
Atchlsou , Topeka & Santa Fo , to-day re
ceived n telegram from Mr. A. A. Hoblnson ,
oniciully announcing the completion of the
extension of the road to this city and inviting
the soliciting committee to tnko a ride over
the line at such an hour Friday as wauld suit
their convenience. The committee is com
posed of the following gentlemen : Gcorgo
J. Englohardt , C. A. Shoup , E. L. Marnoy , J. ,
S. Drlttaln nnd W. A. P. McDonald. Mr.
McDonald said to-day that the committee
had not yet decided about the
details of the trip. If only
the members of the committee
make the trip it will bo rather n small party ,
nnd it is not nt all unlikely that a few of the
more prominent citizens will bo invited to at
tend. When it was first announced that the
Atchlson , Topckn & Santa Fo would have its
lines completed to this city by the first , of the
year , the idea was laughed nt as preposterous.
At that time the (30,000 which was necessary
to induce the Santa Fe company to extend' Its
line to this city had not been subscribed and
the piospects for its over being raised , looked
exceedingly gloomy. The committee went
heroically to work , each member mak .
ing it a personal matter , and the tioccssury
amount was finally secured. The great ob
stacle in the way was the belief , which was
shaied by a KKSi many , thst the road would *
bo built anyhow. This obstacle was finally
overcome , the money was subscribed and
now the same committee annouuco the
completion of the road. Hogular trains will
be run over the road Sunday. The train will
run , for the time being , between Topoku und
St. Joseph via Atchison , nnd then over the
St. Joseph & St. Louis , which will bo op-
crated after January 17 with the Atchison
road to Lexington Junction. The Chicago ,
Santa Fe & California , which is now building
between Kansas City nnd Chicago , , wlll be in
operation within four months and commoting ,
with the St. Joseph , St. Louia & Santa Fe at
Lexington Junction , will make that route
from St. Joseph to Chicago just one mile.
longer than the Hannibal , the shortest route
between the two cities.
Chinese Can Import Opium.
SAN FHAXCISCO , Doc. 20. Judge Hoffman
has rendered a decision in the United States
district court in which the right of the Chi-
ncso to imixnt opium is sustained. In De
cember , 1SSO , custom house authorities seized
a quantity of opium.vnhicd nt nearly $200,000 ,
which had b"en shipped from Panama to
Woo Sing & Co. , of this city. The opium was
held in virtue of a clause in the treaty , which
forbids the Chinese from engaging in the
opium traffic. Judge Hoffman holds thnttho
treaty is not self-executory , and countess ,
having adopted no legislation , Jherc was
nothing to prevent the CMiieso from engaging
in the business.

PAIUS , Dec. 20. [ N6W York Herald Cable
Si > cclal to tjio BEE , ] , Maurice Bornhardt
is married and settled. "Lo Petit Maurice , "
on his friends now affectionately call him ,
was married to the daughter of n real live
princess. A prince an , ! princess for the
bridegroom , remember ) 's ' the son ofa trag
edy queen. The avenue d'Eylan ' quarter was
all excitement yestcfdify. Cnb after cab ,
carriage after carriage were dashing toward
the scene of the nuptqaj drama , pedestrians
uninvited nnd invited tuosts trudging along
besides them bound in the sarno direction.
By noon , the hour fixed for tha ceremony ,
thcro must have been u couple ot thousand
people gathered about m front ot the little
church of St. Honore do Eylnn. Police on
duty forced them back to the right nnd left
of the gates. At least a thousand people had
tickets for the church , .which"was very small
and soon crowded : -It was n curious congre
gation , sach as you seldom BOO at mass. Ac
tors and actresses , in all the glory
of their paint and feathers , artists and
men of letters , ladies ot the world
and ladles of the half world. Scattered
among them were a host of eager foreigners ,
Americans and English chiefly. All Paris
and a stoong detachment of strangers were
dying to sco La Tosca and her daughtcr-ln-
law. Such a restless congregation , too ; such
a rustling of silks , such a hum of convcrsa-
tiqu ; friends and rivals of La Tosca compar
ing notes and whispering scandal , you would
hnvo fancied you were nt a premiere of a
dress rehearsal , only the scats were not so
comfortable and the house was freezing.
The babbling nnd rustling grew so very loud
nt last that the priest stepped forward tojtho
altar rails to admonish the people. It didn't
chock the chatter a bit , though. The choir
was all ublnzo with lights. Hundreds of
candles nt the altar and in the chandicbra
were grouped about the altar steps nnd
where thcro were no lights thcro were
flowers ; masses of roses , white and red ca-
mcllas and azalias set In a frame of green
.palms , ferns nnd evergreens , Against
them flushed _ the scarlet of three
littio acolitcs , swinging censors. Among a
hundred other social , literary and artistic
celebrities in the church , you might have seen
Mile. Harlot , Victorien Sardou , Mile. Dudley ,
Prince de Sagan , Alfred Stevens Whitticr ,
Lc Comte do Lisle , Jules Clarctia , AJcxandro
Dumas , Mmo. and Mile , do Hull , Gcorgo
Clalrin , DueMounot Sully and the prettiest
actresses of all the boulevard theatres. The
biidcgroom , following the bad tradition of
country , wore an evening dress. Ho looked
very handsome , In a boyish way , and scorned
very proud of his little bride.
While the orran pculcd out a processional
hymn the wedding party took their places
before the altar , Sara on the right , the
Princess Jablonowsld's mother on the left ,
the young couple In tho' , center. The bride
was trembling a good ijlcttl. Sara had much
diBlculty in stifling her * emotion. She was
suffering from excitement nnd had a fit of

Delights an Audience.
Newton Boors , with uniformly good sup-
pert , delighted a largo audience nt Boyd's
last night in the powerful spectacular melo
drama , | 'Lost in London.11 The play is ono
that appeals strongly to the lovers of the
emotional and sensational It is full of in
tensely interesting situations and a rapid suc
cession of incidents , while n vein of bright
comedy runs through each act. The author ,
with much felicity and rare constructive
ability , tells the pathetic story of the fall of a
lowly Lancashire mariner's wife , her ho- . ,
guilcment by the blandishments of un ac
complished villain to the great city of Lon
don , her luxuriant , but unhappy and re
morseful life there , her final discovery by her
noble but broken hearted husband , their
touching separation , retribution , death. Mr.
Beers impersonated Job Armroyd , the dis
honored husband , and did the best work of
the evening. He niudo n picturesque figure
and his acting was well studied and forcible.
Jessie Li-o Hundolph played the misguided
wife , which might bo considerably impioved
upon , yet , while considering the fair quality
of the whole , it would bo harsh to criticise.
Lunrcnh Hccs , as Gilbert Fcatherstoue , the
villain , was much nt homo in the role.
Johnny Williams , ns Benjamin Blinker , was
effectively comical , whllo Jennie. Settcrlfco
portrayed the sterling character of Tiddio
Drngglcthropo in un inimitable manner.
Other parts were well taken by Charles Hay-
wood , H. Charles , Annie Sticknoy , Helen
Varry nnd Agnes Wildo. The ballot was ono
of the most attractive features of the per
formance. What it lacked in quantity it
made up in quality , the dancing of Mile.
Tercsinn Carlottn , the premier , being really
inost artistic. The "revels of the nymphs of
the lake" is a picturesque creation , and ns
good a ballet divortisemeiit us ono sees in
many a day. Over these terpsichorean dis
plays nnd the concomitant splendors of costume -
tumo and scenery the audicnco was uprorl-
ously enthusiastic. The North British pan
pipe singers , Messrs. Brunton , Knrcshield ,
Guilmettc and Haywood , made a decided hit.
They constitute u most pleasing quartette.
The clever llttlo dialect comlquo. Johnny
Williams , likewise was received with much
favor. Altogether , Newton Beers and his
company in T'Lost in London" nro well cul-
culatcd to catch the popular crowd.
Edwin Mayo , last night , after four per
formances ut the Grand Opera house , closed
his flrst senson'in Omaha , in the popular and
beautiful play "Davy Crockett. The BEU
has already spoken in. detail of the per
formance of Mr. Mayo , and has take occasion
to comment a great deal on his work. He has
every incentive to hisuro success the pos
session of an historic name , the desire to
perpetuate it , a linoand , piece in which it has
long been famous , together with a more than
average amount of intelligence , energy nnd
talent. His performance last night was the
best of the season , as indeed , was that of all
members of the company. Olga Verne ap
peared in Eleanor Vaughn for the first time.
She is young , petite , pretty nnd intelligent.
If her work last night is to bo considered nn
evidence of her ability she will render Mr.
Mayo excellent support.

"Wesloyan Christian Advocate :
Among my first recollections was seeing
my mother take down u copy of Crier's
almanac , which was suspended by a
string to the mnntlopiecc , to see about
the changes of the moon. Robert
Grior , the maker of this wonderful al-
munac , was a very plain man , who lived
and died yeans ago in Butts county.
During his life time ho made calcula
tions for the almanac ? , nnd almost every
family in Georgia at least had a copy of
this almanac , and relied ou it for such
valuable information. IIo pretended to
toUvhcn it would rain , ana raauy nther
things. Ho was considered n wonderful
num. Altliox'gVi ° hns l > con &cti&
many years , Gricr's almanac still lives.
After Ills death the calculationa were
made by Thomas P. Aslunore , until ho
failed , 'and they are now made by
his nephew , Pro ! . Otis Ashmoro ono of
the most intelligent uducators In
Once it is said Mr. Grior wns riding
along the road when ho came to where
u boy was , holding the calf by the ears
while liis mother milked the cow. IIo
rode up to make some inquiries about
the road. lie addressed the boy and
"My son , can't you open the gate for
mo , BO I etm go a near way through the
plantation ? "
"Yes , " said the boy , "if you will pot
down and hold the calf ; and if you don't
mind you will get u good wetting before
you go far. "
Mr , Grior rode off nnd opened th < j
gate himself , giving but llttlo lic d to
what the lad said , for he iooked above
and saw no sign el Tain. Ho rode on
for sovornl Stiles , and true enough the
oloutln began to gather and teen it wus
pouring uown rain BO that Mr. Grier
soon became thoroughly drenchedHo
was so anxious to know the weather sign
that he rode back to inquire of the boy
how ho knew BO well it was going to
rain. Ho wanted to secure so import-
R-rtl a wt-ather Mgu. He found the boy
and said : , , , .
"My son , I will give you a silver half
dollar if you will sell mo how you knew
it was going to rain. "
The little follow promptly replied :
"Dad's got ono ol old Grior'b almanacs ,
and he said it wasn't going to rain , and
ho is buch an old liar about the weather
I knew it would rain. " He had no idea
ho was addressing the old gentleman
Mr. Grior paid him the 50o and rode
off , amused at the iioor opinion the boy
Had of him as an nhtmuno mnkur.
Ho ] lira of Suffering For n HIi I p wrecked
Now York Times : Three feeble and
suffering survivors out of a crow of flvo
hearty in on who sailed the schooner D.
and E. Kelley out of Norfolk hnrbor last
Friday were brought into port yesterday
by the Norwegian steamer Odon. Cap
tain Define , from t'ort do Paix. Two of
the survival's were colored men John
"W. Coleman and Prank Taylor. Their
logs were badly swollen , and they had
not yet sufllcloiitly recovered from the
effects of their trying experience to bo
ou their feet. The third survivor was
the mate. David B. Campbell , who , al
though his Imnds were badly frostbitten ,
is about again.
The D. and K. Kelley , it seemed , had
a cargo of lumber on board for New
Haven. Captain W. C. Taylor , an ex
perienced skipper of Providence , was in
command. On Saturday afternoon ,
when the vessel was twelve miles east
Of Phoenix Island , a heavy squall came
up. and Captain Taylor headed for the
Delaware breakwater. Soon afterward
the wind shifted ahead , and iu order to
avoid going ashore it was necessary to
put about and head out to sea. At 0
o'clock in the evening , during a terrific
snow squall , the dockloxl shifted and
the schooner was thrown on her star
board beam ends. The crow sprang
into the port main chains , where thov
clung for life , while the vesfol drifted
through the blinding snow toward the
ehoro , where she struck at 11 o'clock.
A sea then washed over the port side ,
where the crow clung. The steward , a
young colored man who had boon
shipped at Norfolk , relaxed his hold
and was swept away. For an instant ho
was scon struggling , then a flurry of
snow swept over him , and when the
wild whirl had passed away ho had dis
boon afterward the dockload wont
overboard , carrying with it the mtiiii-
mast. After being relieved of this load
the schooner slowly righted , mid at
midnight the four survivors crawled on
to the quarter deck. The cabin had
been swept away and the forward part
of the vessel was completely under
water. At 4 o'clock in the morning the
wind changed to westward and the
wreck floated off and driftqd out to boa.
When the eastern sky grew bright and
the stormy waves began to assume dis
tinct forms , the survivors began nn
anxious day's watch. Their supplies
had been washed awny , and the pangs
of thirst and hunger were added to the
sum of their misery. Dusk found them
still watching and hoping for the HUC-
cor which came not. The mate passed
the gloomy watches of the stormy night
in looking for the lights of some passing
vessel. The two colored men forgot
thirst , hunger and exposure for the
time in bleep.
Soon after midnight Captain Taylor
started up nnd cried out that ho could
not sco. His sufferings had resulted in
blindness. Then his mind began to
wander. "I cannot sco ! " he cried , "I am
thirsty nnd hungry ! Have tome one
take me to a hotell" Then ho reached
out his hands and groped for some ono
to lead him. The mate finally induced
him to sit down on the deck. IIo made
a few incohcrant remarks and then
sank back , and his bonso of suffering' '
gave way to the peaceful calm of death.
A moment later the body of the poor old
captain was washed overboard. At 8
o'clock the next afternoon the survivors
were picked up by the Odon , on board
of which they were treated with every
AN EARTHQUAKE EVERY DAY.
Terrible SufTcrlntf Occasioned by the
Shocks In a Mexican Town.
A Nogales dispatch to the Globe-
Democrat says : Colonel ICosterlitzky ,
who is in charge of the national fron
tier police at Bavispo , was iu town last
night. Ho painted u woeful picture of
the present condition of the earthquake
sufferers. He said that the Mexican
government had quite recently sent
them plenty of provisions , but that they
hud an insufficient quantity of wearing
apparel to keep themselves warm.
Their huts on Refuge hill , which are
constructed of ocatilln poles nnd grass ,
offer but slight protection from the
weather. "Winter has sot In with sleet
nnd snow , and the mortiry has registered
loworso fur than for many previous
years. The few houses which were con
structed on the site ol the destroyed
city about a month ago have been
shaken to their foundation. At most
the survivors have but enough clothing
to cover their nakedness. Their
sufferings are greatly aggra
vated by the severe cola weather.
It is not an easy task to depict their
sufferings. Imagine a hill covered with
snow and dotted with over ono hnn-
drcd huts , in which , on account of their
inflammability , no llrcs are burned. In
them are upward of 150 men. women and
children , buried in hay , with old rags
covering their shivering bodies. The
earth quivers , and like HO many rats
from their holes , pour out the cotton
nnd calico clothed barefooted
people , expecting to see the earth yawn
und swallow their hill. For hours they
stand without their huts with the ther
mometer at zero , fearful lest moro
shocks will conic. The past month has
boon ono of unceasing terror to nil.
Some days the rccuvrlng trembling
would not experienced , but juHt bo
hiire as u , day clamed without them
tUtt following day n succession
of shocks , so strong in na
ture as to innko standing impossible- ,
would follow. "While there has been no
now rifts opened in the earth by them ,
heavy bowlders have been displaced
from the mountains nnd rolled thunder
ing to the valleys. To this horror add
a small band of murdering Apaches , and
x-ou will have some idea of the con
dition of affairs at Bavispc. In the past
three weeks four men have been buried
who werw murdered by them. At present
u detachment of fcdoralb are encamped
near Refuge Hill. An escort from tins
body is detailed daily lo protect tno
wood choppers who furnish wood to the
camp. Throe bucks , among whom is the
celebrated Ellas , the half-breed , and
four squaws , have been fscon. It is
positively known that they escaped at
the time Gerouiino was captured , -aim
have been depredating ov&r Einco , al
though they have \r cn chu&od into the
Stats several times.

earthquakes will continue at Bavispo
until a volcano bursts forth. A gentle
man who hub made a btudy of volcanoes
and their origin in Central America , is
pronounced in the opinion that it will

in that vicinity will bo vomiting flrc.

Now Derry , Pa. , correspondence Now
York Sun : On the prcmibcs of John
Cummins , of this township , are a corn
crib and a plgsly , each ol which
IB built of logs. The logs are thickly
punctured with bullet holes , and the
Imitate that made them are still em
bedded in the logs. The logs were cut
more than 100 years ago by Colonel
Pomoroy , ono of the UrMtBOttlorain what
is now Westmoreland county , who bulU
a log cabin in the wilderness with thont
for himself and family. Pomoroy was n
famous Indian lighter , ns was Major
Boll , who lived with his ( tunly ) in a
cabin half a mlle distant.
Ono day Colonel Pomoroy'n cabin was
attacked hy a band of India'ns. Pomoroy
barricaded himself and family In the
cabin , and the Indians besieged them
all the afternoon , llrlng frequently Into
the log walls. The firing was beard by
Major Boll , who crept through tbo
woods ( o the spot. Seeing that the In
dian force wast too strong for him io
attack ho returned home , placed his
wife and two children on his two hot-son ,
and talcing a circuitous route through
the woods , approached Pomorov's ' be
sieged cabin from tbo roar. } lo sue- ,

was occupied 6v Colonel Pomoroy and ,
descendants of his until 1810 , wlion It
was purchased by JOhii Cummins , who
tcro it down and mtulo his pig-pen and
corn-crib out of its historic logs. 1
Ono of Major Boll's descendants , Hv'
Ing In the same neighborhood , has the
gun with which that noted Indlitn
lighter nnd revolutionary noldlor used
In all of his exploits. Ono of these
which is related us an OH ] > eclnlly inter
esting and characteristic feat of the
major. Is to the effect that once un In
dian , in an endeavor to entrap the wily
and greatly feared enemy of his race ,
iniitutcd tbo call of the wild turkey near
tbo major's cabin. The major was n
great lover of turkey hunting , mid hia
practised ear detected a difference bo
twccn the call of the bird and tbo bound
of tbo Indian's fall , although tbo imita
tion was almost perfect. Ho took liln
gun and dragged himself on his stomach
through the brush iu Hie direction of
tbo sound. Ho finally located tbo call
in a tall pine tree , and discovered tbo
Indian porcbed on a branch near the
very top. Major Boll fired and the In
dian leaped high above the tree top und
tumbled to tbo ground. The dead lu-
dinn was recognized by tbo major aa

PrcssinR Merry "Wall's TroiisorH.
Some time tigo , while tbo original
"Erminio" company waa playing an on-
gagoinoii'u.ln "Washington , W. S. Dnboll ,
the Inimitable RavonncB of the cast , oc
cupied nt a Washington hotel , with his
wife , a room which had just boon va
cated by Berry Wall. After Mr. Daboll
had boon in tbo room a couple of days a
messenger cnmo to him ono morning
saying that Mr. VaU hud sent for a pair
of trousers which bo bad lorgotton on
leaving. Tbo iietor searched the clo ot3
but found * no trousers except his own.
The messenger loft , returned soon , bay
Ing tbo trousers were under the bed.
Mr. Dnboll searched and allowed tbo
messenger to search , but still no trousers
could be found ,
A third time the messenger came ,
bogging pardon for giving the actor so
much trouble. The trouttars , bo said ,
would be found between the mattresses
in the bed , where Mr. Wall bad placed
them to bo pressed. Mr. Daboll turned
down the mattress , nnd there , Buro
enough , were a pair of trousers ,
stretched out very carefully and creased
as nicely by being slept on by 190-pound
Actor Daboll as they would have been
by tbo most careful tailor. Mr. Daboll
laughed heartily at the king of thd
dudes' method of pressing his trousers
and then gave thorn up to the messoii--
ger. Later bo wrote tbo following and
sent it to Mr. Wall :
"Mr. E. Berry Wall dr. to"\V.S.DaboU \

The actor hns as yet secured no settle

A Sliowninn'H Trick. '
St. Louis Globe-Democrat : We are
continually deceived because wo are so
much dibposed to take things for jubt
what they soom. You have seen a show
man sink into a tank of water with a
lighted cigar in. bis mouth , and after
remaining at the bottom for a minute
or so , during which atnoko uomos up
through the water , emerge with the
cigar slill between his lips , uuoxtln-
guishcd ? Of course you have. And
you bad no doubt Unit bo was really able
to smoke under water. But a uhowmnn
who Jilts retired on the profits of gulling
the public now tells how It is dono.
Says lie : "Just us I throw myself back
ward , to go down , I would flip tbo clear
end for end with my tongue und upper
lip , get tbo lighted end in my mouth ,
closing my lips "water tight around it.
A little slippery elm juice gargled be
fore going in prevents any accidental
burning of tbo mouth. Going slowly
down backward , I would lie at full
length on the bottom of the tank and
blow bmoko through the cut end of the
cigar. JuHt us I readied tbo urfaco
again another flip reversed tbo cigar ,
and there I was smoking calmly. The
reversing is done bo quickly that nobody
notices it. ' ' Anybody can binoko under
water after Unit.
