SORTING OUT THE GUESSES.
I
f Winner ot Earopoan Trip to Be An
nonnced Without Delay.
Nellta Dry's Quiet Sunday at Home
Happy, but Not Tired.
The busiest place in Tint Wobld office
to-day 1 the room where the guesses
on the duration of Nellie Uly's Jour
ney around the earth are being assorted.
It Is hoped that the task may be com.
pitted this Meek, and the name of the
luoky guecasr may be announced.
! The magnitude of the task may be
imagined when it is stated that nearly a
million of the guess coupons were re.
oeWed, and that they fame in in scores
ot thousands after it was known that the
young woman had arrived at 8on
Francisoo.
In addition to the regular clorical staff
of TnK Wobu, a score of "postmark
experts" from the Post-Offlce are em
ployed in their hoars off duty in Mr.
Van Cotl's premises, each giving as much
time as can be spared from his needed
rest.
It is now known that more than a thou,
sand guesses have hit the right number
of days, but ore out in the hours, min
utes and seconds; more than ten thou
sand came within twelve hours, and more
than fifty thousand within twenty-four
hours.
The time, as announced in the Sunday
Wobld, wan 72 days. 0 hours and 11 min
utes. The greatest pouiblo care has been
taken that no coupon received should bo
mislaid. Every guess sent in will, when
the assortment Is finished, he recorded
and take the exact chance m tho competi
tion to wnioh it is entitled.
The bright little woman who has been
the object of so much attention spent
Sunday quietly in her cosv uptown flat.
Bhe saw but few callers, though she sat
for her photograph in the morning. Her
rooms were redolent with tho scent of
flowers. .Bouquets, baskets, wreaths
every chair, tablo and window was filled
with them.
Kind friends began to givo thorn to
me at Ban Francisco." she said, " and I
received them at almost every point along
the route. In tho rush and crush I lost a
great many of them, and the accompany
ing cords from n great many more. I am
rery sorry for that."
She chatted gayly of her trip. Bhe did
not look tired or worn in the least. Bhe
looks heavier than when she wont away,
and in every way shows that her rapid
changes of scene and air have agreed with
her.
" It seems good to get .back' to New
Vork."she chirped, '"still my Journey
'was a pleasant ouo from beginning to
end, and I am almost sorry it Is over. I
njoyod every day of it. I had no idea J.
should meet with such n reception. A
big crowd greeted me when I landed,
with a band of musio, and they kept it up
ell across the continent till I reached The
"Wobld offloo. I didn't like it at first, but
I became used to it. and soon did not care
for being stared at.
My pet monkoy does not take kindly to
life in a fiat He smashed pretty nearly
everything in the kitchen this morning.
Yon see, he gets tired of staying in his
cage all the time, and I let him out
occasionally to rest him. This mornln?
1 let him out, and the little rascal did a
great deal of mlsohief. He broke all the
plates, cups and saucers he could find,
and before I could get him baok into the
cage be had smashed pretty near every
thing breakable in the kitchen. I am
afraid I shall have to give him to the me
nagerie in Central Park."
Nellie did not hear of the guessing con
test till she arrivod at Yokohama, "then
she found copies of The Wobld, aud
some of the friends she mot there tout
guesses by the same ship on whioh she
came herself.
Showers of telegraphic messages of
congratulation have been received.
Chief among these was one from M.Jules
Verne, which reads as follows i
Amibns Jan. 25. I never doubted the
succeis ot Nellie Ely. Bbe ha proved tier
intrepidity and oourage. Hurrah for her
aud for the director of The Woblu.
Hurrah t Hurrah I Jcleb Vebnb.
Others who wired niesssges of congrat
ulation were Gonsul-Qeneral John C.
New. at London; Itev. Dr. Talmase, on
tho point of sailing from Liverpool; Prof.
Vtrchow, President of the Anthrnpologi

He was held on this charge and

SigDlog'Mammotti Petitions Tor "The
WoilM" Weekly Payment Bill.
Organ hied and Unorganised Labor n
Unttiu'Demundlng Its Passage.
The 20,000 petition blanks bended by
Tub WoBLh Weekly Payment bill, which
have beeii prlntod for circulation among
the pe6ple, are being rapidly taken up by
labor organizations all ovor the State.
Each blank has room for fifty uomes,
and the signatures are filling up at such a
rate that the members of the Legislature
who are asked to enact tho bill, are likely
to lie overwhelmed by tbls manifestation
of popular sentiment in its favor.
Senator Iloesoh, who stands an sponsor
for the bill, is delighted with the rocep.
tion whioh it has met at tho Hands of the
pnbllo, and is enthushutio in his bollof
tliat it will be paaiod by the Legislature
without serious opposition.
The bill baa been carefully examined
and analyzed by some of the most eminent
jurists in the Stato, and it haa been pro
nounced a perfectly sound and constitu
tional measure, and oue which is calcu
lated to Insuro untold benefits to wage
earners ot every class.
The laws as they exist at present are
framed so as to givo the claims of laborers
and mechanics a preference over all
others in matters whero the payment for
work done is involved, and their special
liens come In before the claims of all
other creditors.
It is tho policy ot the law to make them
a privileged class in this respect : but,
despite the favor with which it has re
garded them lu tho past, there are a great
many oases of employees ot insolvent
companies and corporstlons whose wsges
have been allowed to run behind and in
tho end their claims have bceu sweptaway
in the final wreoknge of such concorus.
The Weekly Payment bill w ill do away
with all these risks by compelling all cor
porations, whether solvent or continning
their business in the hands of receivers.
to keep thoir servants' wages closely paid
up, so that if a final crash should come
ther would loso as littlo as possible by
the disaster.
Among tho numerously signed petitions
whlcli-have already been tent to The
Wobld asking for the pasago of the bill
one of the first cam from toe employees
of tho Postal Telegraph Company's main
office.'.
Additional communications have been
received from representative firms and
business houses in various parts of the
State, favoring the proposed law and
pledging their hearty support of tho bill.
