Martin returned from Washington last
night. He had this to say:
"The Democratic party may be a little
off this year, but it will be in line next
year. A dozen causes conspired to defeat
it at the last state elections. The greatest
trouble was that the people always blame
the party in nower when times are hard.

course, changed many votes. The manu
facturers in tlie east closed some of their

of free trade."

Tlie British Museum's Latest AcquUltlom
Jamei Is Gift to a Spaniard.
James I. was a monarch always hard
up, but exceedingly lavish, with other
people's "bawbees." Although he has
now happily been defunct forover two
centuries, says the London Telegraph,
his generosity with goods not his
own has, according to the report of the
trustees of the British museum, just
cost the country and several patriotic
Englishmen the sum of 8,000. While
he was king a Spanish ambassador
came to England to conclude peace,
and among the presents James award
ed him was the royal gold cup, an ex
ceedingly valuable vessel, fashioned in
France in 1391 by command of the due
de Berry, as a gift to his nephew,
It is supposed to have come to Eng
land in return for money lent to the
French king to carry on his wars; at
all events it is found in the inventory
of the royal chattels of ITenry VI., and
remained in the possession of the"
English court until James generously
gave it away. It is a covered cup or
hanap of gold, with ten subjects from
the life of St. Agnes vividly portrayed
in translucent enamel round the out
side of the bowl and cover; within are
two medallions, also enameled, the
one with another subject of St. Agnes,
the other with a half length of tho
Saviour. On the lower part of the foot
are the four evangelistic symbols in
enamel, and the .base is formed of a
cornet of leaves and pearls.
.T:he Spaniard gave up the cup to a
convent, where it remained until 1SS3,
when the abbess sold it to Baron Pichon
of Paris, from whom the Messrs.
Wertheimer purchased it for S,000.
The last-named gentlemen agreed to
let the British museum have it at cost
price, and the late S. Wertheimer even
subscribed 500 to enable them to ac
quire it. The treasury gave 2,830
and the remainder was made up by

A Street Scene That Would Har De
lighted the I.ate Henry Bersh.
It would have done the heart of the
late Henry Bergh good if he had wit
nessed a scene at Thirty-fourth street
and Third avenue the other day, says
the New York Herald.
Lying in the dirty black mud in the
middle of the street was a dignified dog
of the Newfoundland species.
Standing over him in sorrow was an
elegantly dressed young man.
"Come on, old man, get up. Get up,
that's a good fellow," pleaded the
young man, while the dog feebly
moved his tail and rolled his eyes to
ward his master, but did not move.
Then the youth acted.
Dropping a book, which he carried,
into the mud he stooped and lifted the
mud-covered dog in his arm? and
carried it to the sidewalk, depositing
it by the side of a building.
His clothes were besmirched, tho
bosom of his shirt and his cuffs were
soiled, but he paid no attention to his
appearance Ho thanked an urchin
who handed' him the soiled book and
then hailed a cab.
"Vou sec, he's an old dog," he said
to me apologeticall, noting my inter
est in the episode.
"He's one of the family, you know.
I just brought him in from the coun
try, and the rattling and jolting of the
cars must have acted unfavorably
upon his heart, because he gave out
and fell right where you saw him.
Poor old fellow!"
"Well, good day, sir," and he again
raised the animal carefully and de
posited it in the cab which drew up.
"Say, some of dem dudes would've
given de dog de cold shake," com
mented a o-amin as the cab rolled off.
SLAVE TRADING STILL EXISTS. ,
On. Form of It. Called "Blackblrdinc" ,
isMKrneu uu ut jiuvrniarcrs.
It is high time that the attention of
our naval officers in the Pacific was
directed to the "blackbird ing" raids
that have lately been made upon the
Gilbert islands, says London Truth,
"lllackbirding," I should perhaps ex
plain, is the local euphemism for the
form of slave trading that is carried
on in the present day under the British
and American flags. Some three or
four raids of this kind appear to have
been made upon the Gilbert islands
within as many years by one American
adventurer. The natives men, women
and children are decoyed on board by
specious promises of the blessed pros
pect open to them. They are landed
on the hospitable coast of Gautemala,
and there, after a few months of
virtual slavery, the bulk of them speed
ily die from climatic or other causes.
A Vancouver newspaper states that
out of the last shipload thus trans
ported, not more than thirty per cent,
were alive at the end of the year. The
enterprising mariner who has carried
out the previous raids was reported a
few weeks ago to be fitting out a fresh
expedition at San Francisco. The Gil
bert islanders now enjoy the proud
privilege of being British subjects, and
we ought to protect them against this
form of buccaneering.
Entente and the Artlit. - '
It is said that Emperor Napoleon
III. was desirous of bestowing the
cross of the Legion of Honor upon
Rosa Bonheur, the eminent artist, but
hesitated, fearing the popular judg
ment might condemn the giving of it
to a woman. Leaving home in the
summer of 1S05 for an excursion, he
left the empress as regent. From the
imperial residence at Fontainbleau it
was only a short drive to By. The
countersign at the gate was forced,
and, unannounced, the empress en
tered the studio where Rosa was at
work. She rose to receive her visitor,
Uwho threw her arms about her neck
and kissed her. It was only a short in
terview. The imperial vision had de
parted, the rumble of the carriage and
the crack of the outriders'-whips. wer
lost in the distance. Then, and not
till then, did the artist discover that,
as the empress had given the kiss, the
had pinned upon her blouse the cross
of the Legion of Donor.

A DIFFICULT FEAT.
AatstDe a Locomotive That Had
Plunged Into a Muddy Hirer.
On August 10 last, says the San Fran
cisco Call, a locomotive went through
a big ferryboat and plunged pilot first
into the water of Carquinez stratts,
the tender and' cars remaining on the
ferryboat. The water was deep enough
to cover the cab, but not enough to let
the boat out of the slip. The locomo
tive stood practically vertical, and its
nose was deep" in the mud. On the
night of the 15th a large pair of shears
made of twelve by twelve inch tim
bers crossed at the top, was built up
on the end of the "boat and some large
pulleys hung where the timbers
crossed. Then a diver spent several
hours in fastening a number of cables
on either side of the frame under the
boiler. Four engines were attached to
the ropes, but could not start the lo
comotive, although the strain was so
I great that a cable nearly three inches
in diameter was broken, r meting the
appliances of insufficient strength,
the shears were doubled in size, and
fifth engine taken on board.
On the 17th another trial was made.
It was hard to get the engines to. pull
exactly together, and as their wheels'
would slip and revolve the cables
would snap and the tackle generally
! would be badly strained. Finally a
simultaneous pull started the mass
and the cab slowly appeared above the
water, and the engine was gradually
lifted until somewhat higher than
the floor of the ferry boat. Tackle
from a steam dredger stationed in
front of the slip was then attached to
the forward end of the locomotive,
which was pulled out in this way.
The shears were then swung slowly
backward over the deck of the ferry
and the engine gradually lowered to
the tracks it had left. When it was
hauled to the neighboring roundhouse
and the mud washed off it was found
that but little damage had been done
beyond the splintering of the cab by
LOST ATLANTIS NOT A MYTH.
A Toronto Professor Relieves It Was the
Ignatius Donnelly finds a'supporter
of his Atlantis theory in Sir Daniel
Wilson, president of the University of
Toronto, who declares, after a great
deal of search, that the lost Atlantis
was not a myth, but that it was really
the continent of America. He accounts
for its disappearance from view in a
different way, "but that is merely inci
dental. Donnelly's theory, as summarized by
the Milwaukee Journal, was that the
land was submerged by some great
volcanic upheaval, and that from those
who escaped in the continents of Eu
rope and Asia came the tradition of the
deluge. Sir Daniel rejects this expla
nation as being disproved by the fact
that there are no traces of such vol
canic action either on the continent or
in the ocean bed. He believes that the
ancient Egyptians, the mostprogres-
sive and adventurous people of ancient
tJmes discovered the continent, but
that in the decline both of their learn
ing and power it became lost to view
and existed at the time our knowledge
of Egypt begins merely as a shadowy
It is his opinion that traces of the
Egyptians of those days are to be
sought in the ruined cities of Central
America, whose origin has never been

basis for the legend of the lost Atlan

A WILD HIDE.
The Storing Experience of a Ken
tuckian in, the Cherokee Strip.
Terrible Scenes Wltaewed la the Mad
Rush for Hand in the Newly-Organ-
isetf Territory Hard Times
LieuL Arnold, who is attached to
the staff of Gov. Brown, of Kentucky,
recently arrived here from the Chero
kee strip, where he was successful in
securing a splendid claim, says the
St. Louis Republic. On the mem
orable morning he made the ran on a
thoroughbred race horse he had brought
there expressly for the purpose.
Starting from a point four miles east
of Hunnewell he had to ride sixteen
miles south of a point known as Black
wells. He covered the distance in
fifty-two minutes, accompanied by a
"cow-puncher" thoroughly acquainted
with the country. At least fifty well
mounted men were in hot pursuit for
the same claim, but the lieutenant got
there first. Several other Kentuckians
were similarly successful in the same
vicinity. Lieut. Arnold's quarter sec
tion of one hundred and sixty acres is
one of the titbits of the strip. It is
close to the Shekasky river, and is a
splendid tract of land, worth between
two thousand and five thousand dollars
according to experts.
Arnold is a sunburnt, sinewy-looking
man of about forty. lie said: "I
was prepared for a tough experience,
but, great heavens! not for what I saw
and underwent- To begin with, thou
sands of men and women were kept
forty-eight hours in the line endeavor
ing to register. The dust was simply
awful. At the time the rush was made
everyone was black and unrecogniz
able. There was hardly a drop of wa
ter to drink, and washing was an im
possibility. Fifteen thousand grimy
human beings tore madly into the new
domain, reminding me more of the
maggots on a carcass than anything
else. The sooners were in possession
almost everywhere. Lots of them were
shot, and I saw one sooner hanged in
short order. In my ride I noticed near
ly twenty dead horses and quito a
number of dead and dj'ing men.
"There was fighting and bloodshed
enough to satisfy the very worst of the
bad men from Bitter creek. Not far
from m3' clainvtwo men were quarrel
ing with drawn pistols, when a third
interfered and endeavored to separate
them. He got a shot through the wrist,
and then the two proceeded to kill
each other. 1 saw one fellow lying
dead with a handkerchief drawn
tightly around his neck. He had been
strangled, and when searched four
hnndred and fifty dollars was found on
him. When I made the rush I wore
mighty little and carried no arms, but
I felt more comfortable when my Win
chester was in my hands. The scenes
after the rush wore terrible. I saw
two women who were burned by the
prairie fire and the soldiers shot by the
sooners. In fact I have seen enough
of that sort of thing to last me the rest
of my life. Blackwell, the so-called
Indian, who gave his name to the town
site and owns every other lot in it, is a
'squaw man.' He put his hay up to
one dollar a bale after the rush, but
the bo3Ts went to him with a few
double-barreled persuaders on their
shoulders, and he was glad to get
down to fifty cents after a brief discus
sion. They also made him stand by
original prices for his town lots. I
shouldn't be surprised if they were to
hang him any morning.
"Well, I'm glad to getaway from the
strip awhile, although, now that the
rain has come and the dust settled,
there is not so much hardship.
"It was fearful at first, especially
for women, and I am afraid even now
an awful winter is in store for many of
"My claim is disputed.like all the rest,
but I have a clear case. My papers aro
all right, and I expect to return in a
month or so and commence improve

later he was able ttproduce a value of
81,200, notwithstanding- the reduced
price of cotton. In the woolen factory
the change was much the same, the
hand of each worker being able as long
ago as 1630 to make over SI, 200 of prod
uct, and in 1SS0 about S1.S00, the pro
portion of material consumed by im
proved machinery being about the
same. How much the world is in
debted to invention cannotbe stated
in tangible form, says the Journal of
Finance, but with the strength of man
remaining the same and the skill of
tlie present artisan, though shoving
some advances,, still not distancing
that of the ancient Egyptian, the vast
increase of human resources is due
mainly to the influence of invention in
discovering ways in which machines
can do the work of men- The compe'
tition is no longer a competition of
skill of labor, but that of invention,
and in America we are far in advance
of any other nation in this respect- A
man who fifty years ago could turn out
a value equal to a scant wage, now, at
fairly good wages, is able to bring
into being four or five or six times the
A Pretty Girl Station Acrat.
Passengers over the Rumford Falls &
Buckfield road always notice upon the
platform at East Peru a plump and
pretty girl who wears the regalia of
the station agent. She wears a cap
with gold lace and a bras shield, and
on the shield is "Station Agent." This
is Miss Lillie Howard, and she has had
charge of the station at East IVru fcr
some time. She is attentive to her
duties, the trainmen always have a
smile and a pleasant word for her, and
many a drummer vainly attempts to
appropriate a share of her smile as the
train whisks past. Tis needless to
comment on the neatness of East
Peru's station. .

I Spit of CoTernment Precaution
Very I.art;e Amount of the Nar
cotic Is Secretly Brought
A prominent Boston physician says
that it would btartle the people
of Boston generally were it knuivu
to what great extent the use of
opium had already pone inlthis city;
not onlv among- the Chin-.-c. for it has
been understood that this clash of the
population use the drujr, but among-
the white residents. The physieiam
of this city have fought vehemently
against the use of opiates to quiet
children, and they have accomplished
something1 in that direction, but it is
fctill evident that a far larger quantity
of opium is used in this city than is ac-
counted for in the druggist htate-
ment of sales. Says the Boston Adver-
tiscr: "Jlorc than one Boston physician
could, if the principles of their profes-
feion allowed, jrive home prave facts re-
parding- the ruin wrought by the drug
in Boston homes. Xoiv and then the
police make a raid on some opium
room, but their efforts have not hue-
ceeded in checking the use of opium to
any extent. A .special agent of the
treasury fcaid lately, in reply to Mine
questions in this connection, that
opium mmj'H n;r was carried on across
the Canadian oorder to-day in fcpite of
the arrest of o many gangs of smug
gler in the past. The itafl can be
bought for S3 a pound in Montreal and
can be sold here at SiO or more per
pound, according to it quality. 'Hie
drujr is easily carried in large weight.
and one man can carry from twenty- j
nve to tlfty ponnds and can escape tie- j
tection. The trade ofrauggHcg opium j
is. of conrse. a very profitable one. and
as the .mugglers have about one thou-
Kind two hundred miles 11 itoraar over
which they can cross they liave a good
opportunity to do bti rtUnt .
