The American e'nglo. give way tomor
row to tbetmkcy audtbecrow.
The one will r the eliob, or the people and
the other will be food for the politicians
who went under during tue recent land
slide. Tomorrow the glories of patriotism will
give way to the pangs ot indigestion, but
nobody will on that accouutforego their as
saults ou the Juicy barnyard fowl.
It has been decreed by tbeaead o( the na
tion, the chief of thccotunionwenlthand di
rector of municipal affairs, that on Thurs
day, November 28, the people ot the land
are to look buck on all the good that had
come their way during the year and observ e
the day as one ot universal thanksgiving.
It requires but little, urging on the part
of any one to Induce the men uf the present
to take a holiday, especially when such an
occasion has been made a national insti
tution, and is looked forward to with ex
pectancy. It being a legal holiday, the national and
municipal departments will suspend opera
tions tor the day, and the officials be given
an opjwrtunily to ruminate.
WHAT THEY WILL, DO.
President Cleveland and his family will
spend the day nt home according to their
present programme. The Chief Executive
and his family win attend the First Pres
byterian Church where Uev. T. DcWitt
T.itmage will preaoh the Thanksgiving ser
mon. This, will be tlie first morning sermon

Whether they will have a turkey dinner
Thanksgiving Pay or nut Is n question
that Is uow agitating the minds of the
beads ot many of the poorer classes in this
From the preparations now being made
it would eetu that the charitable Institu
tions of the city are trying to 6ce that every
poor family that doc? not have the price
of the turkey will get one.
At the Central Union Mission it has been
luo custom for j ears to send 1,000 families,
who wire unable to buy it, a Thanksgiving
The families are not given the dinner al
ready prepared, bat aro.furulshcd a basket
containing tho raw material for one of
the old-fashioned dinners. The dinner
given this eUss of people consist, of
thicken or turkey, according to the size
of the family, a halt peck of potatoes, one
liou nd of butter, onedjzea apples, twoloaves
pf bread, oue pound of suf.ar, one pint of
bcaus, a quarter pound ofrte.i, half pound ot
coffee, and one poand of rice.
The names and addresses of the needy
families are furnished by Uio ngents of the
union, who are usually on tho lookout for
cases where Uio Thanksgiving basket will
come in handy for some little time before
the day arrives. As these agents of tl.e
mission are at work all the year round, and
associate mosUy with the poor mid, in in
stances, destitute. It Is not at all hard to
discover a thousand f.imllle in a city with
the population this has, to whom a real
Thanksgiving dinner is Indeed a luxury.
These gifts of dinners are not conriued to
the patipi r class, but are sometimes given
to families who are too poor to arford a
turkey, even once a year. The work of elis
tnbutiou Is all done free ot charge.
A TREE DINNER.
The mission has also prepared to furnish a
freo dinner to 500 people at the mission
building on Louisiana nvenuo northwest.
There will be COO tickets distributed, and
in order that the poor of the city are not
crowded out, 400 Uckets will be given to
the local poor. One hundred of the cards
of admission will be retained at the mission
and given to the people who drift In during
Warden Leonard's boarders at the East
ern Branch Hotel, or, as it is better knonn.
the jail, will also have a change from their
regular fare ot "Potomac robins." The
menu for tomorrow will Include turkey.
Of course, tho men who remain the guests
of the warden, 6imp!y because they cannot
get away, will not be permitted to choose
white or dark tueat, as they wish.
It will simply bo a casuot take -what you
get. The addition of the Thanksgiving bird
to the bill of fare at the Jail will undoubt
edly cause considerable rejoicing, as It Is
a delicacy that seldom figures on the list
as a steady diet at the Jail.
The prisoners at the workhouse will also
have a diunerglven them. A mirked change
however, will be observed; the dress suit Is
tabooed at this Institution , and it is c: pected
that Mr. Stantenbcrg'sguestswillall appear
In a dress of white cloth, with heavy blue
bin pea running around the figure.
The workhouse diners will also have to
dispense with visitors, and no outsiders
will be allowed at the dinner. It is a well
known fact, however, that Uie people con
fined there are all exclusive, and for thirty,
sixty and ninety days seldgrn mix with
the outside world.
At the "Vag Hotel" the inmates have to
work for their meal, hud It Is not expected
that any of the "star" boarders will object
to the ago or previous condition of servitude
of the turkeys prepared for them, although
there are any number of fine Judges ot tho
bird at the -place.
Some or them went there for rest, because
It had been such laborious work selecting
nice fat gobblers out ot their neighbors'
coops during the dark ot the moon.

'This country can be made ready for a
successful defense In case of uar by tho
5 ear 1000." Thus spoke lion. J. H. Outh
walte, a member or the board of ordnance
and fortifications, alter a tour of inspection
of the several plants In the East where the
work of constructing ami assembling ord
nance is conducted.
The statements contained in the annual
report of Commanding General Miles, con
firmed as they were by the assertion In
the Interview with Admiral Walker or the i
navy, aroused the attention and Interest
or the members of the board, and. Instead
or meeting at New fork or Washington this
month, as is, their custom, they aiMmhlcd
at II Id vale, Pa., and thence proceeded to
visit all the other cities where plants are
localexl, reaching Washington j tlen!ay.
"That Is a guess at this time," continued
Mr. O'Jthnaite, "lor tLo data obtained by
the beard has not jet been reduced. But
I belleu It is not far out of the v. ay. v ork
iug the usual shifts, the plants can turn out
guns enough to meet our plans for defense
"Ir pushe-d by the ttrcts of necessity,
how Eiiau could the countrj, wah its pres

"Within two and a half years."
"How many plants are at work not turn

"The steel works at Slidvale and Bethle
hem. Pa.; the Walerton n, Mass., and Wa
tcrvllet, N. T., arsenals. Besides these,
which are In large nnd successful opera
tion," explained Mr. Outhwaite, "there Is
a concern at Cleveland yrldcli Is Just en
tering upon a contract fur turning out gun
"Could net the construction of the car
riages be expedited," was asked, "by en
gaging other such concerns as the one In
Cleveland, and w hlch nrc numerous In the
Ohio Valley particularly?"
"The trouble about that Is," answered
Mr. Outhwaite, "that un erjUre new out
fit of machinery Is necessary to do that
class of work, and as the Government is
about tbe only customer that can be ex
pected to enter tho field, naturally most
manufacturers hesitate to Incur the ex
pense incident to the business. Of course. If
war were to break out and the Government
compelled tomake attractive terms with the
manufacturers, there would be no lack
or facilities. However, the board are sat
isfied that existing conditions provide all
that is necessary to carry out present plans
for defense wltldn the period when by
any possibility the works can be needed."
Mr. Outhwaite mentioned that beside the
contract for the armor secured by the
Bethlehem Steel and Iron Company from
Russia, aslmllar contract had been awarded
hv thesamc guv ernment to Carnegie, Phipps
& Company of ritlsburg. x

Victoria, B. C, Nov. 27. It the owners of,
the sixty odd sealing schooners, which
make Victoria their headquarters, stick
to tbe resolution which -they passed at a
meeting held last evening, not one ot the

That owing to the poor result of the
spring voyages, thcseallng fleet defer opera-
Uons until August 1, lti'Jii.
All the prominent sealers were present
and they state that they will adhere to the
resolution. Last spring thirty-two Victo

catch of 2G.000 skins. --
These voyages, accortllng to the resolu
tion, will be entirely done away -with next

.Attempt to Transfer Diamond Indus
try to America a Failure.
The departure for Europe of thirty dia
mond workers on the steamship St. Louis
on Wednesday and the sailing of ten more
of their fellow workmen on yesterday's
steamers, the Campagnla nnd Amsterdam,
making over ICO departures so far, with
more to follow next week, may be said
to puncture the babble which the Alaldcn
Lane diamond, merchants have blown In
Uielr efforts to transfer the great cut
ting and polishing Industry rrom Hol
land to this country, with headquarters
In New JTorkclty.
The scheme now turns out to have been
a brilliant dream, and has resulted In
more loss and disappointment than did a
similar attempt which was made in 1ES2
The strike of the diamond cleavers, cut
ters, polishers and setters, which began on
Nove-mber 11, and Is nuwpractlcally ended,
was for a decrease In hours of work and an
increase of 25 per cent. In wages, which
had falle-n so low in response to the influxot
workmen from abroad that good polishers
were only able to make $12 or $14 a week

The members ot tho three unions involved,
located in this city, Bn.oklyn. and Newark,
were mainly recent arrivals In America.
The census of 1890 showed that there
were sixteen diamond works, or mills, as
they aro sometimes called. In this State,
and 1S6 men were employed. In Boston
there were three shops employing eleven.
men, and nowhere else in the United States
was the Industry carried on. Up to the
summer of 1894 there was practically no
change In the census figures, but when the
Wilson tariff bill was In progress of legisla
