Bat, after all, that is bat a tritlc. Constderii

men and women from paying seirile adulation
to that anplcasaut barbarian, the Shah of
Persia, who was permitted to defile Buckingham

King Kalakuaa is at any rate a monarch of
decent character uud fuir intelligence. And if
we choose to go in rapture abont him. and
lionize him, and see in him every inch a king,
at any rate there will be nothing degrading in
bis contact and associations.
Export of American Steel Sails.
A Chihuahua correspondent of the New
York Railroad Gazette netes a contract just
made by the Mexican Centra! Railroad Co.
for a large quantity of American steel rails,
the contemplated purchase of English rails
by this company. having been abandoned,
partly owing to the unexpected delay in
the delivery of tbe latter. Of course at this
distance, and not knowing precisely how
much influence the pressing exigencies of
the proftcutors of the work may have had
in turning them from the Fnglish to the
American market, we cannot tell how much
higher price tbey are willing to pay for
their hupplie iu the latter, rather than wait
such time u would be required t sec lire
deliveries from the former.
But in view f the cuoinioiiM producing
capacity of Fnjrlish manufacturers, and
tiieir facilities for rapid steam tian.qMrta
tioti to any Hrt upon this continent, it is
hardly probnlde that there eoiiM be any se
rious delay in tilling any Mexican order for
steel rails, however large it might l. It
in much more probable that at tlte lust uio
rneut the pur basing company v a met by
a liberal concession on the part of the Penn
sylvania rolling mills, which made it for
the advantage of the former to send its or
der to this country. Bat the transaction is,
nevertheless, a most remarkable one iu the
bUtory of railroad building outside of tbe
United States, since this is the find time
recorded in that history when our American
railmakers have even attempted to com
pete with those of Great Britain in tbe op
en markets of tbe world.
But the magnitude of the concession that
is made by the former in this case, for the
purpose of securing the contract, may be
guesses I at approximately when we know
that English steel rails can be bought free
ou board ship at Liverpool Ar export at
about $20 per ton, while the price now quo
ted for tbe American article, delivered at
the mills, is $30 to ?30 50 rer ton. This lat
ter price, of course, has nothing to do with
the cost nf production, but is simply what
our tariff system enables producers to get.
It represents the cost of lmi.orting English
rails with the duty on them added. It is
kept just low enough to prevent any mar
gin on imports and bar out foreign compe
tition. Our home railroad corporations
must pay that price without grumbling,
because there is no alternative for them.
But if a company iu Mexico, or any other
foreign country wants our steel rails it can
have them at a big discount from home
prices, which puts them on a par with the
English product anywhere outside our own
count ry . Ma n uact urerf Gaze ttc.
Death of Charles William Siemens
Charles William Siemens, tbe well-knowu
scientist, engineer and electrician. died 20th
November of rupture of the heart. lie was
sixty-one years of age. The deceased ten
day previously fell in Park lane, London,
and went to his home in great pain. His
physicians ordered complete rest and he
was apparently recovering until the 23d
November, wheu he became worse and
rapidly sunk until death ensued. The
council of tbe Society of Am has postponed
IU opening meeting, which wasanuounced
for 2Sth November on account of the death
of Dr. Siemens.
Dr. Siemens belonged to a family excep
tionally distinguished for its attainments
in science. The Boston Herald 83-3: His
wider brother, Werner, and his younger
brother, Frederick, were associated with
him In the discoveries and improvements
which brought -lame and wealth to the
three. Bom at Leuthe, iu Hanover, iu
1323. he began his education at the I.ubeck
Gymnasium, and, after passing through the
University of Gottlngen, went, in his nine-
teenth year, to tLe Stolberg machine of the saloon are finished in mahogany,

Introduction of the chronomctric governor
and the double cylinder air pump. In. 1845
in connection with his younger brother
Frederick, he began a series of experiments
for the discovery of a more perfect combus
tion of fuel. His-Iabors resulted in the in
vention, of the regenerating gas furnace.
All the brothers took part in perfecting this
i. rriii t.oiniifq rhieflv to i
William. The first engine built on this I
nriucirde was of 4-hore tower. Iu ISol he
introduced a water metre which came very
largely into use. From 15o6 to 1861 Dr.

In li67 he began the manufacture of steel

sent .-amplesof the product to the Paris ex
position. In 1S3 he began the erection of
tl world-renowned Siemens steel works at
Ijmdire, in which 1,000 tons of cast steel
were turned out every week, partly from
c vst aud wrought iron and in part directly
from the ore. He also issued licenses to
other works for the manufacture of steel by
tbo Siemens process. In addition to his
furnace inventions he was largely interest
ed with his brothers and Mr. Halske of
BerHn in telegTaph engineering, and estab
lished in 1&5S tbe Siemens telegraph works
at Ixmdou, from which cable lines have
been sent all over the world. The direct
United States cable was laid down by his
firm. His eminence as a scientist and en
gineer received almost innumerable tokens
of recognition. He was elected a fellow of
the Royal Society in 1SG2. He was the
firt president of the Society of Telegraph
Engineers. He received in 174 the Royal
Albert medal for his discoveries in regard
lu-at aud metal working processes, and
in tlo: following year obtaiued.the Besse
mer medal of the Iron and Stool Institute.
He has passed away in his sixty-first year,
leaving an euormous fortune, most honora

THE LARGEST SAILOR AFLOAT.
A Vfssel in Whose Fashioning the Best
Ait of the Shipwright is Displayed.
A new ship with lofty spars and a Jong
black hull lies at the foot of Wall street.
Her jibboom reaches out half way across
South street, while her stern is far beyond
the ferry house. There is not a straight
line in her mode), and the inspectors and
seamen who have examined her say that
no finer clipper model is afloat, if she has
Along the black planking just forward of
tbe cathead is the name in gold block let
ters, John R. Kelley. She was named for
her owner, who lives in Bath, Me. She
was built for strength as well as speed. Her
frames were allowed lo season for fifteen
months before they were put up. As a
specimen of the size of timbers put in her,
it is said that tbe timbers of the bilge ceil
ing are 14x14 inches. They are bolted to
the frames with lj-inch iron. She has the
strongest frames ever put in a wooden ship.
Her length overall is 2S0 feet; length of
keel, 253 feet; beam 43 feet; depth of hold;
2S feet. She has three decks. Her bowsprit
and jibboom are not very long, projecting
about CO feet outboard, but the end of the
jibboom is feet, or a little less than two
cily blocks, away from the end of the
.spanker boom that hangs over the taffrail.
be measures 2,301 tons. She will carry
tons dead weight. Two sailing-ships
have been built that measures more than
tin , one. One was the Great Iiepublic aud
tbe other the Ocean King, a four-masted
ship belouging iu Boston. But the Great
IU public is not now afloat, aud the Oceau
King will not carry to much cargo as tbe
John R. Kelley by nearly 200 tons. She is,
therefore, the largest sailing carrier afloat.
The main truck is about 170 feet above the
deck. Her main yard is 90 feet long. The
first glance aloft shows that her rig is pe
culiar. The tops are supported by angle
iron. It takes a second look to show that
the lower masts are metal also. They are
made of steel plates o-lG of an inch thick,
aud are stayed on the inside with four lat
eral strips of angle iron. They are the first
steel masts ever stepped in a sailing ship.
They are the lightest In weight, as well as
the strongest. They were made by the
Oo-s Marine Iron Works of Bath. She has
the first complete suit of steel standing
rigging ever put on a &ii ip. The shrouds
are served over with small stuff, but even
then tbey appear slender beside the com
mon run of rigging. Willi skysail yards
crossed she will show a big spread of can
vas. On deck there is an engine house
with a donkey engine that will get up an
chor, make sail, pump ship, condense
water, and do pretty much everything that
has to be done about ship except, perhaps,
taking the sun. The windlass is the largest
ever put on a sailing ship. Her chain ca
bles are made of two and one-eighth-inch
Iron. One of the largest size patent an
chors hangs on the port bow and a com
mon one equally large hangs ou the- star
board bow. Comfortable quarters for her
twenty-four sailors are provided in the
house forward. There is a loug poop aft.
An ornamental rail surrounds the house
aft, where It projects above the quarter
deck. Between the after end of the cabin
and the wheelbouso is a broader space than
was ever shown on a sailing ship. "A
quadrille of six'sets would not be cramped,"
as the Captain said yesterday. The wheel
is a work of art. It is built of so'id mahog
any with rosewood spokes. The whole is
beautifully carved and is Inlaid with brass
stars. The wheelhouse is ceiled with ash
finished iu oil. No yacht in New York
waters has finer steering gear. Tbe hand
rails down the companion way are of solid
ebony, silver tipped, and supported in silver
sockets. Corrugated brass plates of orna
.mental outlines keep the feet from slipping
f on the steps. The floor of the saloon is car
I peted with the best quality of Brussels. Ou
j each side of the saloou is a large eofa of
; carved mahogany, upholstered in dark red
; plush. A sideboard at the forward end is'
built of solid mahogany, relieved by rose
wood triintniugs and French burl panels.
A silver rail runs around its marble top,
within which are kept a large silver water
pitcher and silver drinking cups, The walls
It is the work of Amos Ilack-
ett of Bath.
The John R. Kelley was the one hundred
and seventy-fourth vessel built by Goss,
Sawyer & Co., of Bath. She will run in the
Van Vlack California line. She will be
commanded by Capt. Thomas P. Gibbons
of Bath. He has commanded the Trium
phant, a Boston ship, for the last five years
Philip Mason, a Massachusetts man, will
serve a3 mate.
Captain Kelley, the owner of the new
ship, is an old sailor himself. His last
ship was the Tacoma. He run in the Webb
line of steamers from San Francisco to Pan-
am a for a number of vcars. He is one of
the best known seamen iu the country.
X. Y. Sun, November 10. 16S3.
Somehow or other this Sharon-Hill marriage
contract row reminds us of an old story that has
lately bten relocated on Bob Eberi-iy, manager
of r.merson's Theater. Cob was standing. in
front one night, when a couple of opium-
bleached hoadlnms from some collar dive 6wag
gcred np to the box-ofSce and demanded passes
for the show.
Free list suspended," replied the ticket
What if it is ? Don't yer pass der rer
" What profession ?"
" Why, der theatrical."
The ticket seller eyed the couple a moment,
and then referred them to Mr. Eberely.
44 Say, boss,' said ene of them to Bob, "don't
yer pass der perfesh ?"
44 Who are you ?" asked Bob, unfeelingly.
44 Dat's party good ! Who are we ? Why,
we're Hugger and Mngger, der great glue
brothers. Sherry ns into der show.'
44 Sorry w can't accoinmojate you, gentle
men ; but your names don't appear ou our list
of professionals entitled to passes.'
44 Oh, say, cull, come off der roof, will yer ?
Who are yer, anyway ?"
4 My name is Eberely, aud I'm the manager,
said Dd, gi-tting mad.
44 Well, we think ver no rood, ver ain't. If
Billy Emerson was here he'd pass ns t. q.
We'll tell Billy of thisau' break yon, cull, sure,''
and the indignant tdue brothers started off.
One of them enme back iu a moment, nnl said :
44 You're too tall for your place, mid we're
troin' to nive Billy a gaff abont vtr. What's yer
name, again ?"
44 Eberely, sir !'
14 Eb Ebo sav. I can't lenieuiber no such
jaw-breaker as that ; write it on that card, will
yer, if yer not afraid ?''
lLei t took tbe caul 111 a superior manner,
and scribbled his name ou it. The glue broth
ers retired to the nearest saloon, where one of
them wrote above Bob's signature 4'Pass two.''
They returned to the theater, and Bob not being
in sight, presented the authentic pass at the
door, slid gracefully in, remarking as they se
lected choice seats :
4 A man who can be bullied or soft-soaped
into signing his name on a blank space is no
good, and we can prove it. Hist der rag !"
New York, Nov. 27. The Post's Wash
Ington's specie! says : The great character
of the Kentucky delegation is Frank Wool
ford, an old Confederate ofllcer who has
never been reconstructed. The first thing
he did was lo have his room reduced in its
furnishings to military simplicity. He had
the carpet first taken off the floor. The
next thing to go was the hair matlrass and
wire springs; he wanted a straw bed on the
slab, and a straw pillow, The curtains
were torn out of the windows, and then
General Frank Wool ford moved in his bag
gage and was ready to see his friends.
Wathiugton, Nov. 27. Before leaving
Washington for the West, Postmaster-
General Gresham decided that tbe postal
notes furnished by the Hosmer Lee Com
pany of New York were not on aquality of
paper up to the standard required by the
contract. The paper is too soft iu texture
and too light iu weight. The color has also
been furd objectionable. It was guaran
teed by the contractors that tbe ink of the
payee's signature aud that of the stamp of
the piy; :'i office could not be removed
without .-nanging the color of the uote,ard
thus ip' uriug detection of attempted fraud.
The guarantee has proven to be unfounded.
New paper and a new tint is therefore re
quired, and the contractors are now prepar
ing for the change. The new tint will
probably be a tdue one. Some change will
also probably be made i n the form of tbe
design of the note.
Washington. Nov. 27; Ata meeting last

The latest reports from Southern Soudan
confirms the news of the defeat of Hicks
