Tho coal schoonor continues to maintain its
roputntion as tho most daugerouf cruiser upon
tho high seas. Tho oscnpo pf the Guynndotto
is apparently duo solely to tho fact that in

ready for action.
Tho sunken hull of tbo Oregon can ovi
donco what tho coal schooner can do when
really prepared for business. Undo
Barn's Tallapoosa and various other preten
tious craft havo had a tasto of its quality.
Thoro seoms to bo no reasonable doubt
that tho coal schooner is tho most formidnblo
cruiser afloat. If it can accomplish so much
accidentally, what could it not do when
handled in accordanco with naval tactics?
In tho rehabilitation of tho navy, let tho
Government consider tho destructive-capacity
of tho coal schooner.

Wobld pushed open tho door of tho Anar
chist's den at 10.20 this morning and, not
without an inward tremor, entered.
It is passing strange that ono cannot find
Most in his office at a timo whon he is not en
gaged in the wholcsalo consumption of
sausage and beer. It reads liko an invention
of tho enemy, but it is the simple foot.
At tho hour mentioned two men sat at a
round table in the frout end of the room.
Ono was Editor Most and tho other was Jul
iuB Schultz, assistant editor of tho Freiheit,
Tho table was littered with documents and
Schultz was writing rapidly, presumably
working on a red-hot diatribe for to-day's
issue of tho Anarchist sheet.
Most had a pen bohind his ear, but thoro
was no other sign of his oditdrial labors. Ho
was eating, or, mora correctly speaking, feed
ing. Before him was a hugo pllo of sausages,
resting on coarso yellow-brown paper, evi
dently just brought from a Gcrmau
pork-butchor's. Thoy wero of tho
fat and indigostiblo variety known
as " libcrwurst." Tho reporter tried to
count them and got as far as cloven. Tho
othors woro hidden from view by those on
tho top. Near by, but noccBsarily at some
distance from tho sitting Anarchist, wcro a
hugo brown pitcher of beer and a glass full
of tho froth covored liquid.
Tho reportor Bpoko to Most for soveral
minutes, but the Anarchist's ovos wero fixed
on the sausages and beor. Every moment a
hand holding a murderous clasp-knife cnt
off a few inches of tho thick sausago, and
another hand clutched first tho pitcher
and then tho glass. Both the sausage and the
beor were'quickly conveyed to Most's mouth.
Tho rapidity of tho movement of Most'Bhand
and jaw was bewildering.
Between tho gulps sounds camo from Most's
hard-worked Jaws, in reply to questions, to
the effect that Mr. Howe would defend him
on Tuesday and that ho would be acquitted
unless justico were flagrantly violated to his
oppression. Also that ho felt quito well,
being too much used to prisons to allow con
finement, recent or prospective, to prey on
The reporter backod out, his eyes still fixed
by a strango fascination on tho fast declining
heap of sausages and tho diminishing stock of
beer. Ab tho door closed Most tackled a

The Only Disaffection Hald to Exist Among;
tho Chronic " Kickers."
A good deal has been published about tho
alleged split in tho Knights of Labor and tho
proposed formation of anothor order compos

which led to tho " Provisional Committco's "

arose from tho refusal of tho General Assem

Conscience Itlado Tonillnson Hncta a Coward
That n. Detective Arrested Him.
Detective Evanhoo, of the 'Sixteenth Pre

erick Tomlinson, sixteen years old, of 425
West Thirty-third street, last night. The
boy, while walking along Eighth avonue,
near Fortieth streot, appeared as if his con
science were not clear. Every now and then
ho would hurriedly turn his head aud shoot
a glanco down tho street as if ho feared some
thing. Tho detective, aftor following him about a
mile, determined to take him into custody.
Tomlinson carried a buudlo which con
tained a silk pluBh sacquo valued at $10.
On being questioned where he procured tho
tho tacquo ho said ho got it from MrB.
Moonoy. at 118 West Thirty-sixth street. He
coutradioted himself tho next moment by
saying that ho worked at O'Noill's fancy
goods store, at Sixth avenue and Twentieth
street, and was ordered to deliver it at 69
West Fifty-second street. That w as also dis
covered to be false.
