Bread Upon the Waters.
While Count Mitkiewicz and tho special
Chinese Envoy and suite were at the Palace
Hotel, Col. Mosby, the ex-Consul to Hong
Kong, was a frequent visitor. With a view
to learning his opinion of the concession
made by the Chinese Government to an
American syndicate through the Count's
efforts, an Examiner reporter called upon
the Colonel at bis hotel last evening.
"When I seut up my card to this Russian
Count of Monte Cristo," said Colonei Mosby,
''I had no idea that I had ever seeu him,
nor did I suppose he had ever heard of me,
so I wrote 'ex Consul to Hong Kong' under
my name, thinking it would secure me an
interview, and then I could inquire about
my o!d friends in China. When I rapped at
the door the count threw it open and was
delighted to see me?much to my surprise?
and was profuse in bis thanks for my kind
hess to his wife, remarking that she aud I
were old friends. Upon inquiry I found he
had married Miss Mary Marshall, grand?
daughter of Chief Justice Marshall, of Vir?
ginia."
Tho Colonel paused a moment, and added,
musingly: "Thinking of the Marsballs
lakes me bnck to anti war days, when I
lived near them iu Fauquier county, Vir
giuia. Mary Marshall's lather was a
very wealthy man, but was ruined by the
rebellion, and after Grant's election I se?
cured the young lady a clerkship in the
Treasury. You Bee," said he. smiling. "I sup?
ported Grant, in my own State, Virginia,
tor the Presidency, and I once told him that
I found it hotter work than fighting him.
I also put Miss Marshall's uncle, Edward C.
Marshall, the only living child of the Chief
Justice, into the Pension Office, where be
died whiio I was iu China. Last winter,
while in Washington, I wa3 riding up Penn?
sylvania avenue on the car, when I met
Miss Marshall, accompanied by Count Mit?
kiewicz, to whom she was engaged, and was
introduced. Though I received notice of
her marriage, I never dreamed that this was
the man. He has just offered me any posi?
tion I want in the new company he is form?
ing to build railroads in China."
"What do you think of the Chinese con?
cession- to this American syndicate? Is it
not an evidence of a desire for the friend?
ship of the United States r>n the part of
China?"
"Friendship between nations," said Col.
Mosby, "is purely selfish. There is no senti?
ment in it. China realizes that to progress
she mur-t make use of modern inventions,
and she knows that she has nothing to fear
from the United States, because we have no
policy nf foreign aggrandizement. England
uns! Germany have both tried bard to ob?
tain these, franchises, but China is afraid of
their rapacity. The political significance of
the whole niuv;; is the pull it gives Russia.
England finds herself checkmated once
more by the astute Russian. But we Amer?
icans have nothing to complain of; Russia
sets political iidvantase. while we are bene?
fited commercially. The whole scheme is
gigantic, and as tan Francisco muBt neces?
sarily be the shipping port for all the plant
and machinery required, to say nothing of
the oine.ge aud right to work the mines of
tut* empire, you way readily see what an
oriental boom this will be."?San Francisco
Examiner.
Another Train Wrecked.
A terrible wreck occurred on the Balti
Unions and Ohio Railroad, near bridge No.
72, on the Cranbsrry grade, near Oakland,
Saturday, about half-past twelve o'clock.
The ill-fated train was No. 47 and was com?
posed of live express cars and one emigrant
passenger coach fiiied with Scotch emi?
grants. The train was drawn by engine
277, Wm. Paxtou, of Piedmont, W. Va., en?
gineer, and J. W. Ritzell, fireman. Accord?
ing to the statement of the engineer, the
train became unmanageable at Rodemer's,
about two miles above where the wreck oc?
curred, on accouut of the air brakes refusing
to act. and as it descended the grade its
Bpeed increased so rapidly that when the
train reached the place where the cars left
the track it was running at the rate of sev?
enty five or eighty miles an hour. The en?
gineer says he noticed the wheels at least a
foot from the track on the high side, but
could do nothing to check the momentum
of tho train. The tender of the engine first
left the track, and, after dragging over
the cross-ties and ballast for a hundred
yards, plunged down the embankment into
the ravine, along which the road runs, 100
feet deep. The first three express cars re
mainedon the road bed,but the fourth and fifth
curs containing express goods for Chicago,
St. i. iiiis and other points West, pitched
j over the hank into the chasm below. The
express messengers, when they found that
the train was running away, left their cars
and went into the emigrant coach, which
was turned on its side on the south track.
A. W. Cooper, a brakeman, was riding bo
t;* eeu the second end third care, and when
the trainmen, after lue first shock was over,
began io look around for each other, they
fv.iind his mangled body under the trucks of
t'je third car. He was crushed beyond all
-p.ition, and as soou as help arrived his
remain- were placed in a box, and sent
to his home in Keyser, West Virginia.
: William Virts, a brakeman, also of Key
I ser, was slightly bruised. When the cars
j left the track aud rolled down the bank
j they were mashed into kindling wood, and
the packages they contained were ruined,
j Goods of all kinds lay in a contused mass at
j the bottom and down the side of the ravine.
1 The loss will be very heavy, although the
road officials an? making every effort to save
the goods. About half past four o'clock the
ritrge.--1 train irrive! from Piedmont, and
the work of clearing up the wreck began in
earnest. It will lake ail nigh: to cet the
north track open for the passage of trains,
but the south track i ' cleared, so that ail
delay in t;><- movement of tmiu-? will be
avoided.

The capital stock of this company is $625,000, divided into 025.000
shares of $1 each.
The company is incorporated under the laws of West Virginia, and
the stock is non-assessable, and carries with it no personal liability to
the holder.
The Gold Mining Company (location. Music Mountains, A. T.) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in \
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times as
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days.
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the confidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily advanced in selling value.
"Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at par.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
