locked up at the Second precinct station

Mr. J. K. White, a young draughtsman in
the Government service, and is the outcome
ot a very pretty little romance In which
he and Miss Gertrude Ilislop, a ward ot
Dr. Margaret Ilislop, are the central figures.

the young lady.
This morning he receied a note from his
sweetheart at the office, saying she was
locked in lur room, and her guardian was
making preparations to send tier to St.

The CeIebraM "Will Case Is Almost
Ccrttiln.'jri1 Sent Again to
the cinrjrot Appeals.
The contest oLthe will of the late Mrs.
Frank OluistcauV was continued in Juuge
Bradley's court to-day by the examination
of Mrs, Linda Webb, who Is making the
claim. She went on the stand yesterday
afternoon. Mrs. Webb Is a flue-looking
Intelligent woman. She was mjctly but
elegantly dressed. She made an excellent
witness for her aim case.
Her manner was rather reserved, but
she told firmly and fully the material facts
by which it la expected to prove that Mrs.
Olmstead was Incapable or making a will
and was unduly influenced by her husband
In drawing the instrument of June G, 18S9,
under which he asks for more than $100,
000. She was much affected by the dis
Her testimony at times brought expres
sions of weariness from Attorney Henry
C. Davie, of opposing counsel, but there
was all the tlnio a court -room full ot spec
tators who did not seem to lose Interest.
Mrs. Webb told of the relations of her
deceased sister to herself and her mother;
the trouble between them In 18a4; tha
reconciliation, and some of the circum
stances of Mrs. Olmstead's death. She
was not allowed to tell the circumstances
of the Interment at Oak Hill.
There was a constant cross-fire be
tween Messrs. Perry and Totten, attorneys
for Mrs. Webb, and Mrs. Jere "Wilson and
Henry C. Davis for the defense. Many
exceptions were reserved, and the case
wilt almost certainly go again to the Court
Mrs. Webb testified that her sister was,
from the Ume she was lakeusick at Virginia
Beach, "listless, weary of everything, and
wishing only to be letalone." Her mind was
misty, and she iras weak and miserable.
She was In such continuous pain from her
head, from swollen feet, and from some ob
struction In her nose, as to be worn out
physically and mentally.
She said that the suit filed by her sister In
1884 Appeared to be brought under the In
fluence ot Mr. Olmstead.
During all their lives their mother had
given the two sisters almost exactly
the sanio thing's. If she gave the witness
$20, she gave Katie as much.

DUEL WILL NOT COME OFF
Principals in the Metropolitan Club
Difficulty Not Bloodthirsty.
Col. Xovllle Declares That lie- and
Prince Itnrblde Uave Satisfactorily
Adjusted tbo Matter.
There Is little. If any, probability that a
duel will follow a personal altercation be
tween Prince Iturblde, of Mexico, and
Robert Neville, the well-known clubman
of this city.
Although blows were not exchanged, the
lie was given during a discussion between
tbe gentlemen on the subject of horseman
ship. In tbe Metropolitan Club. Subse
quently It is said that Mr. Neville chal
lenged the prince, and, according to rumor,
the affair will be settled by the code some
time during the present day.
Those supposed to have accurate knowl
edge of the prospective duel either are In
hiding or uncommunicative. Prominent
members ot the Metropolitan Club do not
believe that Mr. Neville has issued a chal
lenge assigning as a reason tbe drastic
anti-duelling laws. The story, they say,
might be entertained If Prince Iturbld
were credited as being the challenger. Ills
seconds would doubtless be attaches of the
Mexican Legation, and all the partiPs on
that side of the controversy would in no
wise be amenable to the laws.
Duelling, the sending, carrying or ac
ceptance of a challenge, constitutes a fel
ony under the District code, punishable
only by imprisonemnt In the penitentiary.
Parties leaving the District for the pur
pose ot fighting a duel also commit a fel
ony. In the event'of a fatal termination the
spectators, surgeons and seconds are made
equally guilty with the surviving partici
pant of murder in the first degree. No
more stringent laws against duelling have
ever been framed than those on the Dis
trict statute books.
Mr. Neville was at his club during the
morning, and this afternoon was out walk
ings with Fred Mjy-
In response to an inquiry concerning a
forthcoming duel between himself andPrince
Iturblde, Mr. Neville said the story of the
altercation had been greatly exaggerated,
and theentlrematterhad been satisfactorily
ad las ted.

DR. snJNEGER'S RETURN
Fish Commission Expert Who
Has Examined Seal Fisheries.
SUCCESS OF HIS MISSION
He- TVas Sent to Ascertain Just How
Far American Interests Have Bee
Injured by tlie British System ot
Killing .Seals at Sea Made a Similar
Expedition Twelve Tears Ago.
Dr. Leonhard Stejneger, who has been ex
anUmng the conditions of the seal fisheries
In Alaska for the past six mouths, returned
to the city yesterday.
Dr. Stejneger was seen this morning in
his office in the National Museum. In re
ply to a question concerning the successof
his mission, be said:
"I was seut by the Fish Commission to as
certain with absolute accuracy just how
far our fisheries have been injured by the
British sv.sleui of klillug seals at sea. Our
American traders have complained for a
long time past that the seal is rapidly dimin
ishing In number, and that the fur is also
of an inferior quality. This latter condition
is due to tlie fact that the young-bearing
animal is frequently Injured, and as a
consequence her offspring Is the sufferer.
-In order to verify these assertions. In
Hay last the Fish Commission sent me to
visit the American fisheries. I have made
a BCientiric Investigation or their present
number, their habits and health. In com
parison to their condition twelve years
ago, when I made a similar expedition
this was before the system of piracy at sea
began, and It Is a just and applicable test
of tbe equity ot the late Paris commis
sion." THE RUSSIAN FISHERIES.
Dr. Stejneger eald that be had also vis
ited the Russian fisheries In Kamschatka,
with a view ot comparing their present and
previous conditions, but, with tbe excep
tion ot saying that in both places the seal
Is rapidly decreasing in numbers, he would
not disclose the nature of bis report.
"It is a very lu.portant matter," said
the doctor, "and will have to be handled
cautiously and slowly, I am now engaged
in getting my notes and statistics in proper
shape, in order to make my report to the
Fish Commission. It will be a voluminous
account of what I actually saw and sclent
tifically tested, and on the assembling of
Congre the document will bepropcrly pre
sented and Its contents made public."
Dr. Stejneger said that he saw no ap
preciable difference In the aspect of tha
country since his last visit. Facilities for
traveling are, perehaps, a little better,
but in other ways the tide of civilization
has made no recognizable track. In re
gard to tbe Eskimos, he said that a slight
change for the better might be observed In
the .American side, morally, but not finan
cially. The Americans are more sober and in
dustrious, and the good work of our mis
sionaries is well written in this Improve
ment. The Russian Eskimos are more
prosperous in certain ways, and have
"They think," raid Dr. Stejneger, drily,
"that they are vastly cllilized, because
they have now mostly discarded their
plcturesque native costume of fur and
Rear store clothes. But it Is not an Im
provement. Twelve years ago when I was
there, the Eskimos, during the long winter
when they could not hunt or nth, occupied
their time making up their fur robes and
their wooden shoes, and they were a very
decent people. Now they buy their shoes
and clothes, and spend all their free time
drinking and carousing, and they think
they are very civilized; well, perhaps,
they are," ended the doctor, with a langh.
VEP.r QUAINT TOWN.
Dr. Stejneger spent some time In the
Kamchatskan village of Port Petropan
lokl. It Is a very quaint town of about
400 inhabitants. The Russian governor re
sides there and be was very courteous to
our American explorer by provid
ing traveling accommodations, and other
wise furthering his investigations. Most
of Ins journey was, however, made In the
British man-of-war, the Porpoise, and in
the trading vessels of the furriers.
Dr. Stejneger brought home some inter
esting specimens of arctic birds, ground
squirrels, and mice. Among tlie birds are
two very solemn-looking ravens, unusually
large, and ot the most satiny plumage.
They seem, apparently, of tbeold-fashioned
and well-known raven family, familiar to
nil readers of Dickens. Poe, and Scott, but
Dr. Stejneger says that tbe land of the
midnight sun produces an entirely different
species, with many Interesting and original
characteristics. Two beautiful white sea
gulls are also attracting much attention.
He has also many quaint sjieeimens of
Ivory and wood carving, done mostly by
tlie Russians a nd sold to the traders and ex
plorers. Dr. Stejneger Is very much pleased
with the thorough success of his Investiga
tions from a scientific point, and in ad
dition to his government report will write
a series of papers on this interesting sub-.
Dr. Stejneger is one of the most distin
guished scientists In our large body of
scholars. He is a native of Sweden, and
held an important position In Stockholm,
which he resigned to come to this coun
try. He has been curator of the depart
ment of reptiles In the National Museum
for the past thirteen years.
Haw Wi- Ho to Sleep.
Now physicians and physiologists come
to the front with the astounding statement
that a nun goes to sleep piecemeal instead
of altogether and simultaneously, as It
were. Tliat is, the senses do not lull
themselves unitedly and at once Into a
state of slumber, but cease to receive Im
pressions gradually, one after the other.
At first the sight ceases and next the
sense of taste loses its susceptibility to
Even then, the individual being almost In
a state of unconsciousness, three senses till
remain In a condition of activity smell
ing, hearing, and thought. Gradually tlie
sense of smelling goes, then hearing, and
finally, with the lapse of thought, the en
tire body becomes completely asleep.
The physioioglsls have gone even further
than this, and they say that the senses sleep
with different degrees of profoundness.
The sense or touch Is the most easy to
arouse, next that of hearing, then sight,
and taste and smelling last.
Sleep steals on tho body gradually cer
tain parts of muscles beginning to sleep
before others. Slumber commences at the
extremities, beginning with the feet and
legs. That is why It is always necessary
to keep the feet warm. New Tork World.
