SCENES AND INCIDENTS AMONG THE
Boravltoh correspondence of Tin? iyonJon News,
It takes rather a larixe map to give a view of
Soravltch, but it is mi Important point on all maps
ut this time. Hire Is the end of ilie railway line
of supplies to the Turkish Army. This single line
of road, hecaUBS of the weakness ?if the Turkish
Navy, sends relief to the Turkish Army, and when
one Mill sees what an enormous force is being sent
ov?-r It, one cannot but wonder why the Greek
Navy has not disabled it before, It runs in many
places just a Ian? the Beaabora before reaching
Sal?nica. N??w all regular or mall trains are dls
contlnued, and special military trains, carrying
thousands of soldiers dally, go at all hours of'tho
da] and night. That this enormous army Is
poured into Theaealv and Kplrus ?seems full evi
dei.c thai the Turki??)) Government does n??t con?
sider the war at an end. Over this line are being
sent, not only a great army of soldiers, but horses,
carriages for use a? ambulances (Sal?nica has l -st
all lur "arabehs"), supplies, commissary and
arsenal, and an army of war correspondents.
These last, among whom 1 have been f.-r nearly a
week pushing to the front, do not .?.cm of much
avail. It was known from the beginning that a
Btrlct censorship would cause all telegrams to read
very much alike, but not ?me .-xpect?-d the ?recent
adultion.il hardships Imposed.
A letter received at Sal?nica from a correspon?
dent at the front mid that lor five days all tele?
grams were suppressed, and he mailed s<?m<?, bog?
ging that they be sent from Sal?nica. Added to
this, the mails now run so irregularly that even
the ni??re reliai.le letters are apt to wait for days
on the way. For days there have been no means
of transportation from Sal?nica ??*r even all of
the Red Crescent h m bula nee supplies, and wound?
ed men arc being sent all the way to Sal?nica for

scene yet met with whs at the station in Sal?nica.
IIere were thousands ?>f Albanian volunteers wait?
ing for transportation to Monastir and Janlna.
These same men, who were sen in the streets
yesterday with ragged old mountaineer clothes, ara
now fully litted out In new uniforms, and are vain
accordingly. This differ.? from the ordinary uni?
form. In that it hafl a white f? z with a black cres?
cent and cross on the front, blue coat and trousers
with red piping and brass buttons, the trousers
being almost entirely coveted with white wool leg?
gings reaching above the knee.
The Mritish Conaul-General at Sal?nica told mo
that the uniforming of troops had been one of
the most remarkable things of th?. war. He knew
positively a month airo that not a uniform re?
mained in the arsenal at Sal?nica, and now they
are being given out at the rate of at least. COO per
At tho station the largest crowds woro gathered
about the Albanian dancers, who, with very rude
drums and fifes, were performing what may per?
haps be an ordinary dance of perure, but what was
In truth for all the world like g North American
Indhn wax uancc. The drums were great barrel
affairs, like the famous drums' of the Janissaries
in tho church of Ht. Irene, In Constantinople, and
gave out a dull sound, which spread heavily ovtrrr
all the neighborhood. The dancers, all men,
joined hands and followed a lead? r. This leader
?lunc-d very gracefully, in good time, an?l waved
In his fi?'0 hand a handkerchief. The steps were
like those of a modern skirt-dancer, mostly of a
gavotte character, with toes turned down and the
ir> ,i,i ;..;,- far to the beck. It Is said that this
?lane?- is now going on ull over Albania, and Is also
a leading diversion in some portions of the army.
Another bright color spot at the Sal?nica station
was the crowds of Jewish women, with their pe?
culiar head-dresses?banda of red and Ilia?: low
across the forehead, an?l the hair hung behind In a
green silk bag, fringed .?nd embroidered in p?ari
beads. I learned on inquiry that very many Jew?

relatives to bid tli?-m goodby. Jews. It seems, are

neck for some minutes, mu!, when he finally threw
her from him. fell helpless In the ?lust and had to
be carried awav bv her friends.
The soldiers are of all age?, ranging from boys
who seem to l?o about thirteen years old to men
of at hast fifty. There are al'-o a number of little
boys under len, fully uniformed, evidently ac?
companying their fatness.
This scene, full of life, was In very marked com- ;
parlson to the streets, where the great distress of i
the Greek subjects i? everywhere evident. Not ,
or.lv are beads of famll!?*s arrested and imprisoned,
but the wives and children are evicted into the t

Then, too, there is constar?, fear of massacre.
The citv i? filled with Rashi-Kazotiks, and th?-y arc

A PERFORMANCE OF "COMUS.1'
AMATEt'RS PRESENT MILTON'S MA8QCE AT
A dramatic performance nbsolutely union?? in
cliaracfer was given last evening at Helicon Hal!,
I the home of the Rev. John W. Cralg, In Ene-lewood.
I U was a presentation of Milton's "Masque of
Cornus' by amateurs. The most of the actors,
too, had all the usual limitation* of amateurs, but
Several of them dl?l so rommcndably. and the man?
ner of the presentation was so unusual and so
pretty, that the whole exhibition was un?ommonly
enjoyabl?'. A performance of "Comus" of any sort
Is sufficiently unusual, and the opportunity to hear
the verse spoken Intelligently and by persons in
appropriate costumes and groupings was some?
thing. Kut the most remarkalil?? thing about the
performnm-e was the place In which It was given.
Helicon Hall Is a large house, ami It has a long
and wide court in Ihe middle of It. The court is
covered with a glass roof, Which Is rather neces?
sary at such a time as ltfst evening, with many
Moating mista abroad. Out It has g.ass plots, a
basin wiih a fountain, a brook and many palms
and olher trees and plants rich In leaves and llow
?rs. In this court, with the audience all around,
in the adjoining rooms and on the higher balconies,
the maeqttO was performed, and it would be hard
to find any other place Iniloors so appropriate for
a, sylvan dramv
Nymphs, quite as decorously dressed as was con?
sistent With rc-ognlzed notions of such folk,
sported about this space and Joined In Jollity with
?reatures once men, but now, alas: transformed
by the wicked art of Comus Into tho seml-iem
lilance of beasts. Here the Attendant Spirit
Watched ov?-r the Lmly and her brave brothers,
ami h?re the Crew of Comus, with many a mop
and mow, spread the tables with the cates that
were deslgn<?il to tempt tho Lady, and placed for
her the enchanted chair, from which she could
not move till the spell of Comus was broken by
Sabrina, tln.ugh she had saved herself from a
v.-ors?- frit?, by h?*r stesdfast refusal to tasto the
"??orillaI Julap" from his bowl.
The title p.trt was played by I-.vcrt Jnns.-n Wen
lel. who was picturesque In appearance and clear
and firm and spirited In actl >n. Miss Alice Har
rlngl ?n was commend.*) hly true of purpose as the
Lady, ??m- of the meet ph-asin? performances of
th?- evening was that of the Attendant Spirit by
Miss Evelyn M. ?Tledler, who reeit..,i Mutons rather
difficult vers.- with true appreciation, and sang the
songs witn a delightfully fresh and Heir voice.
Miss-? lieiia Wilder and Amv Hin brightened up
the scene an butterflies, and did a Pretty dance.

BOd hy Mayor Strong, School Commissioner Agar.
the R?-v. t?r. n. a. Bradley, of St. Agnes. Church,
and C. N. Bovee, Jr. The Mayor spoke of tho
ClUsens I'nlon and of his hope that candidates
for the three principal ofllces would be nominated
by a unlt'd movement. Too much was at stake
to run a party man under a party ti.-ket, he sa!?l,
and Baeriflces must be mad?-.. Ills opinion was that
the Good Government men should go to work and
get a man who would be acceptable to some party,
but th.-y must not insist on his nomination if not
acceptable to a united movement. The man must
be nominated regardless of hi? politics and be one
who would be acceptable to all factions which
might take part In a united movement.
NOT TO BE READY FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
COMING nEPI.T OF OTl__*MI VNION MKMBKRS TO
MR. PLATT?SETH LOW AND THE MAYoKAI.TY.
Membera of the Ex?cutlve Committee of tho
Citizens Union wero In consultation yesterday
afternoon over a reply which they have decided
to make to the recent criticisms of Senator Thom.id
C. Platt, but It was said that thty were not ready
to mako tho statement public and might not bo
ready for two or threo days lonp.-r. One reason
for delay was said to be a desire to have tlia
organization of Assembly district branches of tile
union In Brooklyn pushed forward and to have
some prominent Brooklyn men appointed members
of tho Executive Committee before th?> committee
make* a statement.
Reporta received by offlc?-rs of the citizens
Union ure to the effect that some of the labor
organisations In Brooklyn will form 1,ranches of
th<- Union in order to advance the movement to
make S?-th Low the candidate for Mayor Mr. I.ow
is said to be popular with the members of the
Brooklyn trades-unions, nnd it Is asserted that they
nr.- wining to form branch organisations of the
Citizens I'nlon if he Im tu be named as an Inde
pendent candidate for Mayo?*, and If be la not sup?
ported by one faction of the Brooklyn It? publicans.
THE MOVEMENT APPEALS TO HIM.
Charles B, geehr, vice-president of the ?Social P.e
form Club, sent a letter yeaterday to the head?
quarters of the Citizens I'nlon, Indorsing the pur
poaes ?>f the organization. Mr. Spalir says that the
movement appeals to lilm strongly, because It '
unites civil Service, reform with public ownership
of franchises. With Civil Servie.? reform, Mr. gpahr
believes the operation <.f municipal franchises
miplit be extended so that public work now left to .
private corporations might be performed directly ?
by th?! public a.t the lowest rates, with S View t?>
?tas lui-t?.?*,): possible publie servies.
A. W. TENNEY SAYS IT'S ALL BOSH.
Asa W. Te.iney, the fortper United States Dis?
trict-Attorney In Brooklyn, yesterday contradicted
a report that lie hud filed an application for ap
pOlntment as Collector of the Port of New-York.
"That la all bosh.*' ho said positively. Then he
leaned back In his chair and put one foot on his
desk In his law office, at No. 2<*> Broadway, taking
the attitude of a man who was well satisfied with
his condition. "My friends think I ought to have
an office of some kltnl." lie ?a!?!, smiling, "ami I
was spoken to about the Collectorshtn some time
ago, but I am not worrying. If the ?'ollectorshlp
Is off? red to me I am pretty sure not to refuse p,
but 1 do not know that any special effort Is being

Arthur Hcrotrps, thirty years old, who was
owner and master of the -.teamshlp Spinster,
was In slRht of land with a fair breeze and go<?d
weather several week? ago. Then a huge wave
suddenly deluged the decks <?f his vessel. The
young captain .van ut the ?wheel at the tint?-.-ami
was swept overboard.
The vessel was Btopp? '! and an attempt made to
rescue him, but after an hour's in?'ff?-ctual effort
the search had to be abandoned, and the vessel
Btarted on itn ?ay to Victoria. I.rittsh Columbia.
When ?ff Shock's Harbor th.- body was finally
recovered and was tak?>n to Victoria.
There Charles Han-rood, an undertaker, placed
the body In a m?'talll?' coffin for shipment to
England, un order having been obtain? ?1 from
Ernst Compton, th.- Con.ner. Mrs. S?rogRS
wanted the !><>dy Bent t" England, as tnat was
her husband's home, and It appears that sue
understood that the undertaker erould give airee?
UOIM to have the body shipped via N?-w-.?uk
through to England.
There was some mlsunderstandliu:. however.
The undertaker only billed the ?????!> t?. New
York and it arrived ?it th.r Grand < "ntrul sta?
tion last Monday, ami after remaining there
for two days it was transferred to the Morgue
Mrs Scruggs, thinking h?r instructions would
be obeyed, engaged passage on the St. Louis by
a telegram from ?Chicago, and she gave no
thought to the transfer of the body from the
railroad to the Bteemehlp.
Hecause of th? mtsunderstanding there will
be a number of eomplicatlona, undoubtedly, and
the final disposition of the body is a question to
be determined by the future.
The only means of Identifying the body was
by a plate on tho roffln hearing the inscription:
"Arthur Scruggs, drowned at sea."
