There la considerable quiet snlckcr-
lg going cm nowadays among certain
members of tho James i.clll company
that is at present Ailing n most pros
perous engagement at the California
theater In Han Francisco. No ono seems
to desire tho responsibility of tclllni,
tho cause, but murder will out, and re
cently tho real cause camo to light
much to tho embarrassment of Mr. Em
mctt Shackelford of tho Nclll forces.
With very few exceptions San Fran
cisco daring tho winter months, shat
ters more strangers from tho country
and tho East than, any other Western
city. An a conscqucnco clerks in the
hotels always have a stock of good mo
rion In which tho visitors furnish the
tnugh. Mr. Shackelford's Incident hap
pened in ono of theso hotels.
An old gentleman and his wifo ar
rived at tho hotel whero Shackelford
is ,or was, stopping. Tho husband was
an Invalid, having suffered from stom
ach trouble for many years. Tho first
alght that the couple wero In tho hotel
tho old gentleman was seized suddenly
about midnight with violent cramps.
It iias an old affliction with him, and,
knowing that her husband was likely
to bo afflicted at any minute, tho wife
had como prepared for any omorgoncy,
having a quantity of niustnrd and
cltlis In her satchel. Very hot mus
tard piasters. It seemed, wero the only
thing that afforded tho sufferer any re
lict In such attackB.
Accordingly when her huubaud titter
ed his flrnt groan, the good wife sprang
out of bed, slipped on a wrapper, and

ilUcd Into tho depths of the gripsack
after tho mustard. She produced n
small tin box filled with haimlehs look
ing jellow powder nnd u roll of sou
strips of muslin, then glided softly out
of tho room, remarking to her husband,
who lay on tho bed, bent up llkf n Jack
Milfc: "I'll have the plaster icady In a mo
'iicnt." Noiselessly aho hurried along tho
uillway until sho reached the toilet
'oora, where, by means of a How or hot
vntcr, sho prepared n plaster about tho
size of a dinner plate. The gait In the
room had been turned very low, but
there was light enough for the faithful
old wlfo to sco what she waH doing.
Sho npproached the sldo of the bed
very gently, and with all tho tender
ness of her nature, npplled tho plaster
to tho paln-rackcd nbdomen of tho
man. Then sho crossed to tho other
side of tho bed nnd lying down, awaited
"Do you fell easier, dear?" alio In
quired sweetly nfter n few moments.
"Don't you-fecl better, pet?" alio ask
ed ngaln as sho turned over to her hun
band. "Ugh!" was tho reply as the male
form turned and stretched. Then thoro
was a yell nnd a scrnmblo such as nev
er before or slnco dlstrubcd tho peace
ful quiet of that hotel. Tho woman had
mado tho astonishing discovery that
tho mnn to whom sho had applied the
mustard plaster was not her husband,
(but, instead, Mr. Shaekelford, of tho
,clll company. She had enteied tho
Hounding like a filghtcucd antelope,'
sho rushed Into tho adjoining room
wringing her hands nnd half dead with
fear and excitement. Her sick husband
who by this tlrao had giown caali.r,
was sitting upright In bed, nnd ns his
wlfo entered tho room and sink cx
hniiHtcd on the Uoor ho said:
"What on earth is tho mattei, Matil
da? Has anybody hurt you? Speak,
"I, Oh, I, Oh, I, mercy. 1 got Into tho
wrong room," moaned the wife. When
sho had completed tho story of her em
barrassing mistake tho husband In
quired: "Well, where Is tho mustard plas
ter?" "H 1 left It on tho other man'3
stomach," sobbed tho woman, again
bursting Into tears.
' Ucforo tho astonished hushaud had
tlmo to realize what his wlfo had said
there camo a sound from tho next romj
"Clerk! bell boy! landlord! help! oh,
It was Mr. Shackelford, who had dis
covered the mustard plaster.
"Oh, If I hadn't taken that whisky!
They told mo If I over drank whisky
It would eat out my Insldes, and now
tho worst has como."
' The old gentleman and his wlfo had
their mcala served In their room for
tho noxt thrco days, while Mr. Shnckcl
'ford moved to another hotel.
i Judging from the number of blue
wheels on tho streets tho Tribune must
Ifca very popular wheel.
FOR AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION.
London, May U. Tho Secretary of
Stato for tho Colonies, Joseph Cham
berlain, ro8o In a well filled houso to
day to Introduco tho Australian Com
monwealth bill, which ho described as
a great nnd Important step towards tht
organization of flio British empire.
Continuing, Mr. Chamberlain said It
would mako Australia an Indissoluble
federal commonwealth, united for the
most Important functions of govern
ment with Intercolonial free trade, n
common tariff for all tho colony and
jomnion control of tho national dc
lonse. Mr. Chamberlain pointed out
that as forolgn countries were con
cerned In tho new constitution It wa3
.mportant that measures might Involve
iho Imperial government In tho most
serious responsibilities should bo In
terpreted by a tribunal In which all
lio parties bad full confidence, and the
jovcrnment could not consent to
Clauao 74 relating to tho Appeal Court,
oecauso It meant tho abolition of the
mpcrlal veto. Tho government would
isle the house, ho Bald, to amend the
olll so as to retain the power of the
Court of Appoals. Tho government, he
Added, proposed to Introduco In tho
rfouso of Lords forthwith a schemo to
ippolnt for seven years a representa-
Ivo each of Cannda, South Africa, Aus
tralia and India to bo members of the
Privy Council nnd who would act ns
Lords of Appeal. LIfo peerages would
bo conferred on them so that they
would contlnuo to sit In tho House of
Lords, although they would not act
is Judges after their term of service
iad expired. They would bo paid tho
lamo as Lords of Appeal and at tho
:ost of the Imperial Government.
Tho Liberal leader In the House, Sir
(Ionry Catrfpbcll-Uanncrman, said ho
thought It unfortunato that tho Gov
ernment had not acceded to proposals
which had received tho unanimous ap
proval of Australia and, ho added, the
apposition would refuso to support tho
jovcrnment proposals In reference to
tho Court of Appeals.
Tho bill passed Its first reading. Thr
3ccond reading wan fixed for May 21.

Tho Congo Free Stnto Is Inquiring In
to tho advisability of Introducing horst
less wagons to carry freight In thickly
settled regions where whlto settlements
have been built and tho water courses
aro not navigable. Tho French havo al
ready taken tho Initiative In sending
automobiles to Africa for transport
purposes, and though tho value of
..heir experiment remains to bo proved,
(he Congo Free Stato will probably fol
low their example.
Tho French now have a lino of sta
tions along tho upper nnd middlo Ni
ger. Freight for theso steamers Is car
ried on small steamers up tho Senega
to tho head of navigation at Kaycs. It
Is then transshipped to tho railroad,
which Is completed as far as Badunbe,
about forty miles, and from thnt point
porters carry It up tho Niger, and aro
about two weeks on tho Journey. The
growing lmportanco of theso Inland
stations makes this Blow freight ser
vice really embarrassing, and as tho
railroad will not bo completed to tho
Niger for several years tho distinguish
ed French explorer, Felix Dubois, con
ceived tho lden of utilizing auto
mobiles. Fifty-flvo wagons, each of nlno or
ten horso power, with n maximum
speed of eight miles an hour, havo been
specially built In Paris for this service
In Inland Africa. Tho utmost atten
tion has been given to details of con
struction, and they have been as fully
adapted to tho peculiar condltlono of
tho service ns Is posslblo at present.
They are now being sent to Senegal
and will take their places on tho routes
between the upper and middlo Niger
and the terminus of the railroad. It
Is expected to send every week from
each end of the lino from four to ten
of theso wagons,, each able to carry
about 4500 pounds of freight. Ono of
tho wagons will havo accommodations
for a dozen passengers.
It la Intended to keep tho routes In
good condition for travel, but during
the rainy Bcason tho service will bo
suspended, because, the roads will then
bo almost impassable. It will tnko only
four days to cover tho dlstanco be
tween tho railroad and the river. As
the railroad advances tho auto
mobile routes will bo shortened, and
after tho completion of tho railroad tho
wagons will be transferred to tho other
sldo of the Niger, which will bo con
nected by automobile, routes with such
Important places as Slkasso, Kong, Say
and other towns In tho rich western
Soudan, whero tho primitive porterage
service, Is tho only means of transport.
