Impressions or n Reporter Who Braved
the Billew or the Coneatefpi.
We were wandering aimlessly through the
city last evening, looking vainly for some
thing (e de, when a kind friend lufermed
us that the steamship " Lady Gay," Capt
Peeples, was scheduled toUke a trip down
the winding Conestoga. That will be the
very thing. There will be the river, a
breeze for a river without breeze la an
anomaly moonlight and a beat. Whatelc
ment or happiness J lacking.
Se we bearded an eleclrle car at the
square and hung en a strap for perhaps
twenty minutes. We arrived at Potts'
landing In titne te see the Lady Oay round
the turn down thestrea-n and steam slowly
te her berth at the end of the pier. We
were early, and se viewed the crowd. And
what a crowd 1 Here, there, and every
where they were; of all classes, but all
bent en pleasure. There were levers and
lassies without levers, Jelly bachelors and
solitary maids, but all In a geed humor
and enjoying the Chlnose lanterns and the
full moon rising ever the eastern shore.
The pier was crowded and we had some
trouble pushing te the front, but we get a
place and wero of the first te go ever the
gangplank after the passengera had disem
barked. At the schedule time the whistle blew,
the gangplank was hauled aboard, the
lashings were cast off, and the yeyage was
begun. The Lady Oay seen felt I he force
of the current, and her nese swung slowly
down stream, while the tinkling of the
engineer's bell, that throbbing accompani
ment te all steamship voyage, began.
A nervous dame from seme neighboring
farm heuse loudly ex pressed her ploasure
in finding that she did net get son sick and
her daughter wondered "of this thing
would stick out uv the water far enough te
stand en of it sanked."
The pilot shapodeurcoursedowii stream,
and of con rse we took our station at the
front of the beat, carefully distributing our
avoirdupois se as te trim ship. The
scene was beautiful. There in freut was a
bread uurippled path of lights, outlined by
the mirrored trees In the water and the
dceper shede of the trees thomsclves en
the banks, but these dark objects In the
light, and the bright ones in shadow, what
are they T .Why beats, ofceurso, aud thore
in that ene noarest us, that black band
around the waist of the girl sitting in the
stern, Is only her sash outlined by her
white; although the gallery gods from the
lower regions de make many frlendly sug
gestions te the fellow beslde her. Going
around the turn the lookout Bights
thellghts of Roeky Springs. As we pass
we cheer the crowd en the bank, while
they de net exactly cheer us. And new
the scenery grows wilder and mero ro
mantic. On the east bank the hills are
higher and the trees larger, while en the
west appears that modern adjunct te mod
ern romance afonce beard advertisement.
Under the willows, thore te the right, n
boatload sings "Annie Rooney" ; boyeud
the turn the Canadian beating song swells
en the air ; behind us, In the sparkling
wake of the steamer, a light beat rolls in
the miniature waves, while In the prow of
our own beat vocal music has succeeded
Instrumental and seme man is telling what
happened " way down yonder In the corn
field." He we go down te the city mill,
when we turn and cemmence our homo home
ward Journey. At Recky Springs we step
and take en another crowd, while one
young fellow creates a diversion by fishing
for ills hat.
Somehow or ether the shiny deuizens of
the sedgy banks have disappeared from
the Conestoga. Ne mero does the doep
bass of n bull-frog join in the chorus
of " Annle Llsle," or the tenor of Ifls
smaller cousins form an accompaniment te
" Old Black Jee." Dame Rumer says that
after the first few trips of the Lady Oay
there was an emigration. Hut whether It
was because the icsthotle tastes of the
chorus of frogs was offended at the sound
of her whistle, or whether the harmony of
the erchestra grated en thelr musical
sensibilities, we knew net. They are geno,
and may thelr vacation never grew less.
Without accideut or special inctdent we
search the pier and rush for the car. We
ride home well convinced that the Lidy
Oay is an institution and an Institution ap
preciated by the citizens of Lancaster.

net be mero disappointed than will Harri
son. Harrison, llke Reed, regards the
ferce .bill as being emially as important
from a party point of view us the tariff bill
and the silver bill. Frem the days dur
ing the last campaign, when llurrlseu
never emitted In all his little speeches te
all visiting delegations seme reference te
the necessity for such u law, until the
present, he has constantly pressed it en
the Republican leaders, lie lias spokeu te

the last caucus that rattier than have the

Massachusetts burned te ashes and her
citizens living en codfish and potatoes at

thing lu ethor words. Of course, this ad
vocacy of the measure has been weakened
by the president's unpopularity.
But ene thing which he has dene gives
Hear hopes. He has had prepared at the
department of justice a completo preject
for carrying the force bill rapidly into
effect, just as he had the treasury depart
ment prepared for the silver bill, ami will
be able te apply It te the elections next
November, even If it Is net passed until
the first of October. This Is being tised, of
course, us a counter-argumcut te the claim
that the bill will be useless this year. even
if passed this session, Harrison propones
te enforce it fully If it Is passed. His pro
ject Is comprehensive, and he will net hosi hesi hosi

Lebanon read at 7 o'clock In the morning
te the f:25 train In the evening, Including
all the special trains, crowd of various
altos arrived en the ground. The total
number reached fourteen hundred.
The fact that Rebert K. Patttsen and
Chan neey F. Black, candidates for gover

te be present, drew a large portion of the
crowd. Senater MoAdeo, from New
Jersey, waa also expected, but owing te
congressional business at Washington he
waa unable te leave. A previous Invita

anniversary of the Samuel J, Randall

The Disposition oI'IIieiiiiik If. Illythe's
Estate Ills Dnuuhter the Heir.
The celebrated Blylhe will conlest,
which lieguu July 18, 18M, and progressed
steadily for evor a year, ended In Han
Francisce Thursday, In Judge Coffey
rendering a voluminous decision In favor
of Florence, Illegitimate child of Themas
H. Blythe, the tloceasod millionaire,
awarding her the bulk or the "estate, of u
total value of about 91,000.000. The con
testants included the jplalntlir, Florence
Blylhe; Allen Edith Dlckersun, alleged
widow of Blythe; the Williams helrs, or
Liverpool j Iho Illy the company; the gipsy
Blythes; the Savages, or Londen; the
Scotch-Irish HavageH; James Will Pearce,
and William and David Navage.
The court's opinion held that according
te the laws of this state, Florence had
established her claim te Illythe's paternity,
the latter orally and lu writing having
acknowledged her as his child. The judge
said there wero seven or eight decisions In
the case, but he had written but two
opinions. In regard te the collateral heirs
he had net written an opinion, but would
state the decision.
Alter reviewing thocauseof action which
was te determlna the rights of heirship,
the court proceeds te read the opinion,
holding the fact first te be ascertained,
which was the paternity of the child. Three
elements have broil established In the
opinion of the ceurt: There was an Illegiti
mate child; plaintiff was that child;
Themas 11. Blythe, the defendant here,
was the father of thin rlillil.
As te the alleged imter, wherein Blythe
expressly ami lermaiiv acknowledged
Florence te be his child, the court over
ruled adversely, holding that thu evldouce
lu favor of It was lucredlhle; but ull that
the law of California required in the case
of an illegitimate child Is such recognition
and ucknowlftlgmeul as the evidence pro pre pro
duced by tldualutllV would tend te show
and did show, In the case of the alleged
widow the court says: "The contradictions
lu the case of this claimant uie Irreconcil
able, and cannot be reconciled en the basis
that decedent aud defendant wero man and
Themas II. Blythe died lu San Francisce
lu 18S3, leaving n forlune of $ 1,000,000,
Plenty of claimants at once presented
themselves. Among thorn wero two so se
called wives, a daughter, and n family of
gypsies. The last ene te show up was
Captain Carlten Illythe, who olalmed te be
a cousin of the deceased millionaire, When
the captain announced his Intention of
going forasllceof the geld, Immediately
his relatives wero en hand, with claims
adding wonderfully te the long list of
Most promlnent among the claimants
was young girl who was known as Flor Fler Flor
nce B!ytho,the daughter of the millionaire,
and se strong did slte stand te win that ene
time thore was a movement among all the
ethor claimants te combine against her.
The girl was an Illegitimate child, but she
showed loiters from her father and her
mother, and showed proof of having re
ceived money from film. It was feared
the girl would be in ado way with, and
detectives were placed en guard, and up te
this day the child has net lea thelr sight.
When the trial begau a year age there

Blythe was a gypsy. His mme was
Gonlon. His great-grandfather was Jean
Gorden, connected with the Meg Murrlles
or Walter Scott's novel, and he was a do de do
sceudant of Jehn Yeung, famed In Ayr
shire eh a highwayman. Iu 18.W Blylhe
was ene of a gung of ineii who captured a

possession of the beat and inade thelr way
te Valparaiso, ,
Ulylln "ud flve associates were captured
by a Br ish gunboat und sentenced te Nor
folk Inland. He .escaped and made his
way te San Frauclscn, where he took the
uame of Blythe. He then took up his
abode among the miners and wen it small
fortutie ut cards, which he Invested lu real
estate. The venture proved a success, ami
his money rolled rapidly up,
Blythe seen returned te England and
remained there until 1871. Iu 1873, while
walking ene afternoon, Blylhe met a very
pretty girl about U0 years of age lu West West
beurne Greve, He Introduced himself,
und an intimacy sprang up, as a result of
which a daughter, Florence, was burn De
cember 8, the same year. Illythe returned
te Sau Fiaucisce, but provided wall for the
child. Probably Iho uexl strongest claim
ant wus Miss Alice Kdlth Dlckorseu, who
claimed te be his wlfu because he was liv
