of vessels that pass through the Bound when
she struck the reef under full sail. She pounded
on tho reef during the early hours of the morn
ing, and, as there was no prospect of being able
to save her, Capt. Cummlngs and the orew
made preparations to abandon her. They re
mained aboard until daylight, and then, with
their pergonal effects, they left the vessel and
rowed to Stony Creek In the yawlboat The

posure. During the forenoon the seas broke over the
deck ot the vessel and her hull was broken in
two. Although Capt. Cummings had no hopes
ot saving tho vessel, tors wore sont for to
make an attempt to haul the vessel off into
deep water in order to save the sails and rig

MANY DRIVERS ARRESTED.
OtD OBDINANCB AOA1XHT LANPLKSB
Sudden Aellvlty of the rolloe Caused Mnch
Hardship Anions; Drivers nt All Sorts of
Vehicles ICxcept the Licensed Trucks.
Tho police, acting under Instructions from
Headquarters, began a crusade all over tho
city lastnightacalnstvehloles without lanterns.
At loastlOO drivers were arrostod charged with
violating the olty ordinance which prescribes
that every vehicle, except licensed trucks, shall
carry, from an hour attar sunset until an hour
before sunrise, a lamp or lantern ot sufficient
brilliancy to bo seen at a distance ot 200 feot.
Chle! Dovery Issued his orders two days ago.
Bonding a circular letter to each Captain, and
tnbloi Ing a copy ot the ordlnauoe, but it was
not until last night that the work really com
menced in earnest.
A majority ot tho' arrests were made on th
lower east aide, where business is carried on
to a later hour than in any other section ot tho
city and. where greater Ignorance prevails con
cerning regulations of this character. ' Mostof
the, precincts on that sldo footed up Wtotal of
about twelve arrests each', and n the early part
ot the evening there were sometimes so maiiy
wagons and cabs gathered in front ot tho sta
tion houses, with tholr drivers locked up in
cells, that traflln was blocked. In most cases
the drivers who were arrested were not tho
ownors of the vehicles and as rapidly as possl-'
bla tho ownors were notified. Then they
would hurry around to the stations, abuse the
drivers viciously and wind up by balling them
Ono ot the first men to be arrested for vio
lating the ordinance was an Irishman, who
was captured by a polloeman of the Union Mar
ket station while driving an express wagon
with doused lights along Houston street.
"Hey. there," shouted the policeman, get
ting In front of his team, " your light's out."
"It is not." replied the driver, carefully re
mot ing a ragged-looking cigar from his mouth,
"and if it 'twas," he continued, "there'd be no
skin off your nose."
Then he put tho cigar back In hie mouth and
puffod at it until lie almost started a blaze.
"Does that suit you?" ho Inquired as he
grinnod down at tho policeman.
"Nit'don'tsult me. and It won't'BUlt you,"
eald-the poltcoman as he cllmhod -Jntpj the,
wagon. "Whore's your lantorn ? "You oome to1
the station house and tell your tunny iokes.to
the Sergeant. He'll laugh at you and then he'll
lock you up."
Still the driver was obstinate, and tho police-'
man had to explain to him that ho was under
arrest for violating a city ordinance.
"Well, upon me soul, 'tis a terrible sin," said
the Irishman as he spat the cigar upon the
ground and droe solemnly to the police
Mostof the drivers were neither as humor
ous In tho beginning nor as stoical In the end
of their exnerlenofls. Their excuses were
Suite numerous, and occasionally ingenious
no young chap, who was arrested byonsot
tho Delancey street station mon at 0:30 o'olook

before the Sorgeant. After he had given his
unpronounceable namo ha began with hla ex

"Couldn't he-.catch tho chickens?"
" Ho could catch 'cm, put be couldn't kill 'em

archent, if you let me go "
" You tell the Judge that In the morning."
remarked the Sergonnt. "The first time is
once too often. You'll havo to stay here to
night." The man, whoso name sounded something
like Seawall. Bald his employer lived at 03 WII
lett street, and the police sent for him to get
his wagon, whicli was full of newly killed
A half hour later another victim was brought
into the Delancey Btreet station by Policeman
Cohen. He had been driving a team attached
to a wagon. Ho gave his name and that ot his
employer, and tho Sergeant sent for the latter.
Ho came in furious. The Sergeant sent tor the
prisoner. Th owner fairly jumped at him.
"Didn't I tell you to take a lantern out with
you?" he demanded.
, "L don't know." said the man. who was
afraid of hU job on the one side and the police
station cell on the other.
"Didn't my brother Louis tell you not to go
without a lantern 1" again asked the owner.
" Yes. he did." tho man finally aUmltted.
"Well, why the devil didn't you?" snarled
the owner. I toll yon this much : You can stay
here all night. I won't ball you out. You can
ray your own fine to-morrow, and I hope it's a
big one. It's all your fault. If It hadn't been
I'd havo helped you, out." And the owner
stormed out of the station.
There was on driver who was breaking the
ordinance, and the police were oamplncon his
trail, but he was too smart forthem. lie was
caught in front ot a saloon on First avenue,
where he had stopped to get a drink. He had
left his team outside, and while it was standing
there a policeman came along. He saw tho
lantemless vehicle, but he determined to wait
until the man cot on the seat and drove off. so
that he would havo a sure case. There Is noth
ing In the law which prevents a man from al
lowing his wagon to stand for hours without a
light. 80 the wise policeman waited.
In the meantime, however, news of the many
arrests was noised about through the district.
A man brought It Into the barroom. The
teamster heard it. He went outside and found
the policeman waiting for him. Then he went
back to the saloon and borrowed a lantern.
Lighting It, he slipped It over his arm and
walked out again without a word. Tying it to
the seat, he picked up his reins and drove oft.
A half block awoy he turned, and, lifting his
right hand, placed tho thumb on tho tip ol his
nose and wlgeled the .lingers at the polloeman.
"Buncoed." murmured tho oopper. and ha
sought the other end of his beat.

" This is the legislative revision year in Mis
souri, and the session will be prolonged beyond
tho 120 constitutional days. The Railroad.
Insurance, Interest and Boad laws of the
State will be radloally revised. I have
fought and propose to fight the proposition1
that a railroad ought to legally receive a stated
sum for carrying a stated amount of freight in
our State covering, say. 600 miles, when for the
tame volume or bulk and tor the same liguro
hey will carry it across the State and deliver
t in Toxas and Kansas. In soma respects it is
the long and short haul controversy, and this
time we will win.
" The Interest rate, now 8 per cent., will also
be changed. In my opinion; It will be reduced.
We will not bequlto so radical as the good peo
ple ot Kansas have been to the railroads In this
respect, but both freight, and passenger rates
are too high."
. W. J, Ward, the Stoddard county candidate
for Speaker, said: "This Legislature is an
agricultural body, and. while exercising good
judgment will naturally look after their own
Interests, precisely as the lawyers and cor

WAsninaTON, Deo. 28. Among the speakers
atthebannuot of tho Sons ot the American
Revolution to-night was Comtnandor Bradford,
U. 8. N Chief of the Bureau ot Equipment and
Supplies. In tho cpurso of his remarks he said.'
"Beware of the untrained recruit, be h a
naval militiaman or a volunteer In the
army. I say this In no spirit of disparage
ment ot the American volunteer, but th
time has coma when war has boen re
dycod to such an exact science as to
need men especially trained for It, and none
othor will do. In saying this I voice the sentl
monts M tho regulars, both of the navy and
tho army, and nnywhoro you meet two of. them
together thqy will agree on this point"
Commander Bradford responded to the sen
timent, "In Times of Pcaco Prepare for War."
Ha told ot the quiet preparations that had
beon going on in th navy for two years before
the breaking out ot the late wtCr, mentioning
particularly the target practise and the
efforts of the navy to procure a suitable
supply of ooal and place it at tho few
coaling, stations whloh tho United States had
available. Only one Ann of coal doaltrn. ha
said, had tho nerve to keep its contraots with
the Navy Department after war had been de
clared. One Captain, on bolng told that ho
could Insure hla ship against capture by the
enemy, said: -
"Yes. but thoy will makemowalkthe plank."
Commander Bradford urged tho neoesslty of
aoqulring the Caroline Islands, or at least a
coaling station there. If we doslred to hold the
Philippines. Ho gave muoh praise to Secretary
Long and Assistant Secretary Boostveit
for tho manner In which thy prepared
the navy, for war. Thore were, several
points ne desired to bring to the public atten
tion. He was" not In political life and bad no
expectation or hopo ot political proformont.
and could therefor speak his mlud Ireely.
Hn then made the statement regarding
tho American volunteer as compared with
the regular, and followed It by saying that
If tho United States wished to take and
hold a placo among the first nations of the,
globe It must have a suitable army and navy
and must havo coaling stations for its navy,
with suitable supplies.
