DRAYTON AND BORROWE.
New Yoke. March 23. James Coleman
Dnivton ,-ind Ballet Alsonn Borrowe have
arrived here, hound in body and limb, and
with no evideuco of tho-sauguinaty nieet
iiiK which was half anticipated by the In
terested public on thiis side of the water.
The story of the trouble has been public
property for some duys. It .arose out of
Borrowed intimacy with Mrs. Drayton,
and culminated in an attempt on
the part of her husband to seek
faatisfaction by force of arms. Failing in
this, he took passage on the White Star
liner Majestic, which left Liverpool on
"Wednesday last. Borrowe, hearing of thie,
accompanied by Harry Van Milbank,
started post-haste to Qucenstown, whero
ho caught the same steamer. This action
assumed the appearance of inviting a con
tinuance of the controversy and thus the
Jear arose that the duel which was threat
cued in Paris would actually bo brought
about ou the steamer.
Sinco Tuesday night there has been a
host of watchers anxiously looking for
the steamer Majestic, which arrived this
Hfternoon. A cousin of Mr. Drayton had
chartered a tug, which was lying off the
quarantine station even before sun down
jesterday. He made little secrecy of his
determination to avenge his relative, in
case he had suffered at the hands of Bor
rowe or liis second, Milbank. on the way
itcross. Mr. Bonowe's friends weieeiual
iy determined, while club men all over the
city wero uuanimously of the opinion
that the principals must meet or forego all
claims to reception at any club in this
country. The decision of the French jury
rt honor was not accepted as binding,
having been made exparte and on a hypo
thesis which assumed as a fact a matter
material and disputed. So great was tho
fear that a quarrel might bo precipitated
that the agents of the White Star line
arranged to put a strong guard of detec
tives on board thesteamshipatthe earliest
moment. About twenty tugs containing
fiiendsofthe parties were at quarantine
awaiting the arrival of the steamer.
Dr. Jenkins, tho health officer, ac
companied by a small party, boarded the
Majestic on her arrival, but all was quiet,
hhortly afterwards a revenue cutter, with
fourteen on board, lelt the dock and, amid
the heaviest fog of the year, felt her way
to tho vessel's side. There was a scramble
up her bide, aud, notwithstanding the
orders issued by Agent Kersey tli!t no re
porters should be allowed ou deck, tho
entire parly managed to violate the man
date when the party came aboard. Captain
Parscll was at once overwhelmed with a
perfect torrent of questions from his visit
ors in regard to the conduct of Drayton
and Barrome during the voyage.
''I know nothing of any trouble between
those two gentlemen," he said. "They
have been the quietest of my passencers
during the trip. 1 have heard nothing
about any duel, either on board the Majes
tic or auy where else. Mr. Drayton, par
ticularly, was very quiet and retiring, and
not much was seen of them during the
voyage. Indeed, I did not know that
Drayton and Burro wo knew each other. I
don't think 1 saw them speak to each
other during tho voyage."
"When Drayton aud Borrowe were seen
they said that they would make state
ments this evening. Mr. Drayton took
pas-sage on the boat of tho health officer.
He was lauded at St, George, from which
he took tho feiry to the cityl
Promptly at the hour appointed tonight,
the reporters were on hand, but both
principals failed to keep their appoint

made by them. A search was made for

would-be duelists Jiad been spirited away

A CHAPTER OF HISTORY.
San Antonio. 'J ex., Mate h . General
Marino Esoobido, the greatest living Mex
lean general, who whs commandcr-m-chief
of the national araiv duruu the
French invasion and during" Maximilian's
short and stormy reign, arrived Lore t tut
morning. It has been charged that the
fall of Queretaro was due to tivncbert on
the p.ut of Miguel Lopez of Mixuuihan's
stall, who is generally supposed to have
delivered up the strougplnce fora traitor's
reward. In an interview todav, General
Lscobido cleared up that error. He said.
"For a long term of j ears uv mouth has
been sealed b h promise which I held
sacred, but the discovorv of authentic let
ters from Maximilian" has t evented the
truth and released me accidentally from
the pledge I had taken as the last favor on
earth to the doomed ponce. Miguel Lopez
was a secret emissarv of MnxiniUtauV.
Hwas sent to me at the dead of night
and m deep accrecy to propwe. in Maxi
milian's uaine.the surrender ot Queretaro.
providing he ithe emperor was allowed
to flee from the cuunttv m -,Tatv
This I could not and would not grant, and
demanded an unconditional snrrender.
Muyuel Lopez then told me, in Alaximil
iuns's name, that the surrender of
Queretaro coald be made on the morrow,
but asked me, in Maximilian's name, anl
as a last and single favor to the fated
prince, never to reveal the proposition
made by Maximilian to surrender
his army in exchange for his freedom, and
to thus save his name frourthe stain which
would inevitably attach to it if his treas
onable intent were known to tuc world.
Tuj is how ic chanced that Colonel Lopez
has borne in silence for many years the
brand of infamy n List act of devotion
to the memory of Maximilian.

Topeka. Kan.. March 23. The board of
railroad commissioners this morning re
quested Governor Humphrey to institute
mandamus proceedings against the Union
Pacific railroad comuatiy, to enforce the
order of May 20, lS'Jl. calling for additional
train service on the Lincoln branch of that
road. Shortly after this order had been
made the Union Pacilic increased us serv
ice, but subequently removed the tn.iu.
Anew complaint was then filed. A de
cision of the supreme court iu a similar
complaint against the Kansas Ueutrdl
road places the commissioneis in an era
harassing position. In the latter case it
was decided that in the matter of physical
condition and train service of the road the
commissioners' orders were advisory only,
as there was no statutory provision for
enforcing them. The commissioners, iu
passing on the new complaint, say that. In
view of this decision, all that thay are jus
tified iu doing Is to lay the matter before
the governor and call upon him to insti

entered into by the Boston and Albany,
the Yanderbilt lines, the Chicago and

the payment of a commission of $'20 on
every first-class ticket sold from Boston to

fresh complication into tha transconti

already in such a snarl that it was found
necessary to turn the whole matter over to

WOMEN AT TRIALS.
WHY LADIES FLOCK TO C0U11T.
A Clear Definition of the Causes Which
JIake Women So Susceptible
The New York Sun has an able editorial
in which it seeks to showr why some
women Iovo to attend sensational or
murder trials. It says: "Women are not
stirred at all by mauy of the occurences
which agitate men, but when a case in
volving life and death comes up. a tragic
case, and more especially when it bas
about it a mystery in which a woman is
concerned, and a woman of the more refin
ed society, they lollow its. course with an
intensity of interest greater than men feeL
It is akin to tho fascination which a Iictic
tious tragedy on the stage bas for women,
and for women more than men. It is a
luxurv for manj- good women to have their
tenderest feelings of sympathy aroused.
They enjoy going to funerals and wiping
away tears shed in unison with those of
sorrowing relatives. The plays that
wring tho heart are more attractive fo?
them thau the comedies which provoke
merriment. They delicht iu having their
feelings roused to the highest pitch."
This is undoubtedly true, but there is a
cause far back of all this. It is a cause
which has its origin in the life and condi
tion of the women themselves. Most wo
men are- weak and not in good health.
When a woman is sickly, her feelings are
quickly aroused and she suffers keenly.
Thus is the real actual cause of it all. Wo
men should not suffer. They are designed
by nature for happinese, not miseiy. And
vet. too often, it is continual sulferiug,
when there is relief. Itead the experience
of a New York lady.
Mrs, J. F. Beale. residing at 303 Lexing
ton avenue says: ''About six years ago 1
suffered from a severe attack of peritoni
tis and general kidney troubles. Despite
the attendance of skilled physicians my
aliments increased. I finally decided to
try Warner's Safe Cure and purchased n,
bottle. This step was taken upon the ad
vice of several friends who had been bene
fited by its use. At this time tho phy
sicians stated that another attack of my
malady would most assuredly prove fatal.
I took four bottles of i he oafc Cure, which
entirely cured me. Whenever I feel as
though any of the symptoms were return
ing I take a dose and immediately feel
better. I now feel as well an in my girl
hoodand it is entirely due to this
Is this an isolated experience? By no
means. It is precisely what huudreds of
other ladies have fouud true iu their ex
perience. It shows that if women con
tinue to suffer, if the trials of life weigu
them down when they should be joyful,
they have themselves only to blame.
There is a means of relief, of restoration.
It is pure, it is safe, it is a woman's best
friend. By its use sin' can be enabled to
withstand the ills of life and secure both
health aud happiness.
