"Yes, truly there is an inspiration in

let us transport ourselves br.cfc
to that other scene which was witnessed
a quarter of a century ago th is day in the
historic temules of the Eternal City. It
was a time when the Holy Father was
still in tho possession of a great part of
his own. The glorious traditions and
holy memories of the past yet clustered
with almost pristine vigor around the
holy places when yon came as a youth from
the young Republic beyond the waters

and sanctity, to garner in the treasure

Alaska, to the Detriment or All litis
"Washington, Sept 21. Chester Secber,
formerly United States Commissioner
for Alaska at Ounalaska, sent the House
committee on morchant marino a letter
yesterday concerning the Alaska com
pany and the seal fisheries which the
committee now has under consideration.
In this letter he claims that the company
uses the power of its contract with tho
Government to monopolize the whole
trade of Western Alaska; to oppress tlio
inhabitants of that country, r.ud to retard
its development All commerce with
this part of Alaska, he says, is dou?
through the rivers and Bchring sea at
the instance of the company, and an7
vessel found there is searched, and any
furs which it is found to contain, in what -ever
manner obtained, are seized and
sold. This, ho says, prevents trade wi h
tho country, and results in most cases in
Mr. Seeber also accuses tho company
of freezing out a competitor by raising
tho price of skins above the London
price and lowering them again when tin
competitor had been driven from the
field. The company, ho says, prevents
the development of the adjacent country
by discouraging prospectors and minors,
and refusing to sell them food when ther
are in need. The letter was read before
the committee yesterday afternoon.
Mr. Mclntyre, the suDerintendent of
the company, said that the company had
paid a rather high price for furs when a
rival appeared in the field, but he
thought this legitimate. He said that
Seeber owed the company two tlioustu-l
dollars for rent and money borrowed
when ho left its employ.

St. Louis, Sept 20. As Emmet Liytoi
and his brother Alvin were lying in b-.l
last night, in the rear of their father's
drug store at Grand and St. Loirs ave

sounds coming from the direction of the
door leading to the cellar. Premising
that a burglar was attempting to efT;ct rwr
entrance, both of the young men reached
under their pillows for pistols which re
posed there, and simultaneously fired at Vie

some heavy body had fallen down tho

The young men hastened to the hick

hemorrhage. On tho dead man's left

2ew Orleans. Sept 22. It is reported
that a portion of the railroad track be

torn up by frightened people in order to
force trains to stop. There is good ground
for believing the report trus. There is
scarcely any fear thut any refugees will
be able to reach Louisiana or 2Jew Orleans
by river, for Jackson has been isolated
and people from there have no means of
reaching the Mississippi river. Vicksburg

Jackson, Miss., Sept 22. The fever ex
citement was greatly increased yesterday
by four new cases. They are David Hippe,
Charles Daley. Jefccph Bourne and Frank
Kavanagh, all workmen on the new rail
road depot It is generally conceded that
all the cases originated here and were
caused by excavations and disturbing
filthy sewers on tho depot grounds dur
ing the past two months. Three-
fourths of the white population
havo fled. The stores are nearly all
closed and there is but little food in the
cit3 for the "can't-gct-aways." No trains
stop hero, but a special train was furnished
last night for such as wished to go through
to the North, taking on passengers some
distance north of the city. Tho Red Cross
Society was organized to-day. John Lor
ance, one of the three cases reported
Thursday, died yesterday afternoon. The
provisions have nearly all been carried
away and the merchants and people who
can not get away are in a bad fix. Nine
tenths of the white people and a few of
the colored people have fled. A shotgun
quarantine is now in force on nearly all
the dirt roads surrounding Jackson.

A special from Gainesville reports one

who went to Fernandina.
One of the most pathetic incidents of the
pestilence occurred yesterday. A littlo
nine-year-old boy named Storck was
brought in from the Sand hills where he
had recovered from yellow fever. Making
his way to his home he was told that his
father, mother and sisters had all fallen
victims to the dread disease. He is a
bright little fellow and will be cared for by

to leave town under pain of hanging.
On Sunday two fires wero started in
buildings where no stoves wero used.
Early Monday morning a big lodging house
was fired and the lodgers escaped with
great difficulty. One man is evidently
burned to death, as no trace of him could
bo found. Soon afterward four other fire3
were started in different parts of town.
The incendiary fires yesterday were
serious. Tho conflagration in Pierce's
clothing house was well under way when
discovered, but hard work saved much

visited England, France, Belgium, Ger

I like tho Gormans belter than other peo

entirely free from pretense. They were easy
to get acquainted with and inspired one
with confidence. They are economical and

Concerning France, he said: "It is mani
fest to anj-casual observer that there is a
great irritability on the part of the French
people toward Germany. The young Em
peror seems to take pleasure in announc

HE FUR SEAL FISHERIES.
Necessity of Restricting the Fisheries in
the llehriiijj Sea.
"Washington, Sept 19. Information has
been received here from Canadian sources
to the effect that the fishermen of British
Columbia are quite as much interested in
the presevation of the Alaska seal fisher
ies as Americans are and that they would
be willing to join in any measures the ob
ject of which would be to perpetuate the
fisheries. This question may ultimately
have some relation to the complications as
to the Behring sea fisheries seizures which
have arisen between the United States and
Canada. It appears that the track of wa
ter highway in which the Canada schooner
Thornton and her boats were seized by
tho United States revenuo cutter is directly
in the line of waters in which the fur seal
aro plenty. Canadians themselves admit
that if these waters were opened to the
world to fish in the fur seal would soon be
come an extinct animal. The zeal of the
hunters to capture all the seal they can is
controlled in that region by the regula
tions of the United States Government
which aro designed to preserve the ani
mals so that only the natural increase will
bo captured. If, however, the waters of
the Behring sea should become a common
highway for all fishermen the result would
undoubtedly bo the speedy destruction of
the fur seal fisheries.

At the western end of the canal, on
tho Gulf of Corinth, are situated all
tho large depots and offices of the
canal company. Here a new town is
growing up, called Isthmia. The
depth of water a short distance from
the shore is thirty iathoms. The
work is most irksome and expensive,
the canal having to bo blasted rather
than excavated. Tho sides of the
canal are of solid granite, and there
will consequently be no washing away
or necessity of dredging. The tariff of
the canal will be fixed at a low figure,
so as to catch all the coasting trade,
and it is fully expected that, in spite of
the great expense of the work, it will
pay well in the end. Iron.
A DAKOTA BLIZZARD.
Storms That Bring With Them Blasts of
Littlo or no snow falls in Dakota
from November to April. It is too
cold to snow, and the blizzard is not a
snow-storm (in the ordinary sense of
tho word), but a cold wind which
comes sweeping down from Behring
Strait, with a velocity of from fifty to
sixty miles an hour, bringing with it
a blast of finely powdered ice. Imag
ine a thick fog, all of ice, blown along
by a high wind; the tiny particles,
coming with such velocity, sting like
a blow from a whip-lash.
Nothing can stand before it. Those
buffalo and cattle, who are used to it,
make for the lee side of the nearest
hill, haystack, or building, and hud
dle close together for safety, trusting
to being covered by the snow, and
thus kept warm; when, if the storm
does not last too long, they may escape
You can not see across the street
from ono house to another, and men
have been frozen to death within a few
feet of homo and safety. The ther
mometer falls many degrees below
zero, beyond the power of mercury to
measure it; only the best spirit ther
mometers can be used for these low
temperatures. When going with tho
wind you are driven along with resist
less force.; if against it, you are
knocked down and buffeted about; un
less you aro so fortunate as to find
speedy help and shelter, you are al
most sure to be frozen to death. Mrs.
M. P. Handy, in St. Nicholas.
He Trusted Not In Vain.
"My young friend," said old Mr.
Surplus to young Mr. Giddiboy, "do
you not think that you were rash to
ask my daughter to marry you when
you are not able to support her?"
"Well," said the young man, craft
ily, "perhaps I was. I admit my fault
and throw myself on your generosity,
"That's right," declared the old gen
tleman. "You shall not lose by it, I
assure you. There, sir, is a nickel to
pay your car-fare home. No thanks,
if you please. Good-day, Mr. Giddi
boy." Chicago Kcias.

Prickly Ash Bitters I
a name everyone can remember, and to the
present day nothing has been discovered that
is so beneficial for the Blood, for the Liver,
for the Kidneys and for the Stomach. This
remedy is now so well and favorably known
by all who have used it that argument as
to its merits is useless, and if others who
require a corrective to the system would
but give it a trial the health of this coun
try would be vastly improved. Remember
the name PRICKLY ASH BITTERS. Ask
