be proven, except that she was a woman
of evil life.
Judge Kimball said he had always held
that a woman of Mabel's stamp was at all
times liable to be arrested, and required
her to give bond. Mabel could not give
$100 bond, so she was sent to the work

Barnura said to 'a Times reporter to-day
that although tjniet, peaceable and hospit
able In disposition, they"are shy and suspi
cious, and missionary work among them
is slow and not very encouraging. The
Jesuit fathers have been laboring in the
delta for nearly nine years, and as yet the
native population is far from being Chris

traveled the' missionary said that he had
penetrated as far as Kotzaba, the furthest
Station on the Arctic Ocean. Three years
ago he served as pastor at Point Barrow.
Father Barnum will prepare a grammar

the financial difficulty he was In, stating
that be had failed to get a remittance fros.

"We decided that tbe best course to
pursue was to make an assignment for tbe
benefit of our creditors.
"None of our local managers knew of
this arrangement until the deed of assign

business In Washington, and the trouble
Is not at this end. but our other brand .8
have not been doing tbe amount of busi

Is the result.
"Mr. Silsby left for New York early this
morning and is trying to raUe money to
meet our present obligations.
"The money we owe Is m,tly due to
traders and those who have invested In
our securities. All nf our offices will be
closed after the market to-day and will

Sugar Saffera a Sharp Reverse. But
Hailleit Quickly , and Heading Move
Up a Pec or Two.
WalIStr&jt,New York, Sept.5. Tbestock
market this morning was very irregular and
business was again on a large scale. The
opening was rather weak on additional
selling of St. Paul and other International
favorites by London, and prices ran off
about 1-4 to 7 8 per cent.
Sugar made the greatest loss, failing
to 113 1-2, notwithstanding the good re
ports about the trade. Later on when
the early sellers attempted to get back
their stock, the price rallied quickly to
114 6-8. Shortly after the opening Read
ing was taken In hand and moved tip to
22 5-8, round amounts being traded In.
Sus. A Western preferred adrunccd 1 1-2
to 38. Jersey Central Lackawanna and
Delaware & Hudson were quiet and firm.
Less was heard about the new coal
combination to-day, but tbe street still
believes that important interests are at
work ou tbe matter. The grangers were
all a shade lower except for Northwest,
which advanced slightly.
In tbe specialties, Minnesota & St. Louis
rose 3-4al 1-4 per cent., Tennessee Coal
was also in request and advanced to 43 1-4.
Tobacco was quiet, the meeting of the in
dependent tobacco manufacturers having
bad but little effect.
