Serious Complications Over the Ea-wcs
Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 10. The situa
tion here is grave, and while all good citi
zens hope for tho best, the outlook is not
reassuring. The Hawes murder mystery
is almost forgotten since the greater hor
ror of Saturday night. Colonel Jones,
colonel commnnding the troops, is report
ed to have said that he feared violence to
Sheriff Smith more thnn lie did any fur
ther attempt to lynch Hawes. Sheriff
Pmifli nnii David Pniptt. fins of his chief
deputies, have been arrested on warrants j
charging them with murder. Warrants i
for a number ot other officers have "been
Mvorn out but have not yet been served.
The statements of the officers and those
men who were in the crowd were very con
flicting" The peoplo avIio were in the
crowd say the officers fired first
;md that no one was making
an advance when tho first volley
was fired. They claim also that tho
officers continued to shoot while the crowd
was retroatinnr, nnd several men were hit
in the back. On the other hand the sheriff
bays a, number of shots vere fired from
tho crowd after the officers ceased firing,
bmith was arrested by Coroner Babbit ou
a warrant issuetl by a justice of the
pence The affidavit was made by J. .i.

The chief of police was also arrested
last night on tho charge of murder. Cor
oner Babbit made the arrest and took
charge of the sheriff's office. lie has
placed Chief Deputy Teruss in charge of
she office for the present.
Vest et day afternoon the news spread
that-1,300 miners from Piatt mines, about
five miles from this city, would, after
tlark, march to tho city armen
with guns, pistols and dynamite car
tridges, and with the increase to their
ranks that was expected, assault the sol
diers and with dynamite blow to atoms
the jail. That such will be attempted, is
expected, even by the military, though a
successful final is not anticipated. Colonel
Jones suid at 0 o'clock that the soldiers
would bi duly notified by scouts of the
approach of the mob. He feared some dis
turbance, but believed that with the force
at his command he could make successful
The address issued this morning by a
meeting of citizens to the citizens of Bir
mingham, says, among other things:
'J here aie some things sacred as life it
sef and one of tliem is the maintenance
of the laws made to protect life and honor
,-ind virtue. Without orderly observance
f the laws of the land no man, no woman,
io child is i-afe.
Public indignation at the atrocious
mines is natural, but at the same time the
laws should visit the righteous penalty. It
mtiht not bo said that in the gieat ciiyof
Birmingham a criminal cannot be arrested
nd have a fair trial. We appeal to every
ood citien to commend law, order and
jioace; to repress all attempts to oxcite
jmpular indignation and to refrain from
i ssembling on the streets. The good name
i f our city, your own security, and that of
our wives and children counsel most
Mrongly the strict observance of law."
Birmingham. Ala., Dec. s 10. The cor
n er's inquest today is endeavoring to get
ttt the bottom of the facts in Saturday
night's massacre. Excitement still runs
s'ery highaud the people nre divided over
the action of tho officers. Ono very re
markable feature is that nearly every man
kilted was f-hot in the back, showing that
Ihe crowd had turned away when the first
firing was begun.
TIIK EXCITEMENT SUBDUED.
It is reported that Hawes has just made
i full confession of his crime. Business is
, dug on as usual today, except that all
Mloons is closed by order of Colonel
T.mei and the only evidence of trouble re
maining is a line of troops and cannon

So matter who was right or who was

morning driving in from Oak View, and ha
was a picture of health and contentment. He
was alono in the buggy a common American
top buggy with a small, open box and a nar
row seat, and his big bay horse bowled along
at a lively gait with his head well up and a
hold on the bit, which tho president appeared
to enjoy. It was a littlo after 8 o'clock in
the morning, and tho air was rather cool, but
tho president wore his dark overcoat unbut
toned and held tho reins taut in one
hand, this hand resting on his knee. He
sat erect, with a black derby hat tipped
pretty well back on his head. Under tho
buggy, doing his best to keep pace with the
big horse, was o brindlo dog, c. cur which I
foel sure could not rightfully claim residence
at Oak View or the White House. At her
country house Mrs. Cleveland keeps a num
ber of beautiful dogs, but surely not such a
low bred animal as this. ' Bo, later in tho
day, I asked a watchman at the White Hoaso
If tho president had been buying any brindle
"Naw," said he, in a tone of disgust, "that
'ere pup tho president picked up one day
'bout a week ago 'tween here and Oak View,
en' we can't drivo him away. Every morn
lug he trots in under the buggy, rests all day
some placo 'round here, an' is ready to trot
back again at night. As tho president drove
up ono morning I asked him if I should kill
tho dog. 'Xb,' said tho president, laughing,
'he's all right. Let him alone.' "
The drivo from Oak View Is a good seven
miles, and tho president greatly enjoys it.
Ho has had tho buggy only a few weeks, and
uses it whenever ho can. The road i3 good
all the way and he usually makes the trip in
about three-quarters of an hour. He has al
ways been an early riser, and gets up in time
to eat his breakfast and drivo to town by
8:30 o'clock usually, and raroly later than
9. As the president drove up tho avenue at
a good pace, but few heads wore turned, and
one could not help thinking of tho plainness
and simplicity of tho whole proceoding the
head of tho nation driving in to his day's
work unattended by coachman, courier,
footman or outrider.
Tho president docs do a day's work every
day of bis life. Probably nono of his prede
cessors ever worked so hard. Mr. Kinne,
ono of the two Democratic employes of the
White House, tho remaining fifteen boing
Republicans who have worked there for
many years, tolb mo that the stories of tho
president's hard work and powers of endur
ance are by no means exaggerations. Kinne
was one of the president's trusty helpers at
Albany before coming here, nnd says his
chief works harder as president than h? did
as governor, something which he never
thought possible. It has been the president's
habit since ho entered tho White Hous to
work from 8:30 o'clock in tho morning, with
but an hour aud a half interruption for
luncheon and dinner, till 1, 2 or 3 o'clock tha
"But no matter how late ho works at night,"
says Mr. Kinne, "wo find him at his desk
as smiling and bright as you please when wo
get there at half-past D next morning.
How ho has ever endured it is moro than I
can understand. Ho has taken but little ex
ercise, except when off on his vacations,
rarely or never walks about tho grounds,
eats heartily and works pretty much all tho
time. If thero is any secret to it I guess it
may bo found in the way ho sleeps.
Tho president is like a child in that;
as soon as bo touches tho bed ho is fast asleep.
Xo matter how hard ho has worked during
tho day and night, or how much has oc
curred to worry him, ho throws everything
of? his mind and finds rest instontl'. Tho
president and his private secretary aro a
team, if there ever wa3 one. I can stand a
good deal of work myself, but though my
work is light compared to theirs, they hare
had mo half done up more than oaca."

Ths president has not scon a sick day sinca
he came into tho Whito House, save his trou
ble with rheumatism. With this he is occa
rioaoliy so lamo tht he gets about only with
great difficulty, and for a few days soma
months Since was confined to his bed. Sinco
tho election tho prcsid?ci has determined to
devoto more time to Mrs. Cleveland and to
take more opsn air exercise.
One day last week th gardener who ecem
dways at work in the White House grounds
were surprised to flee the president sanntet
cut toward Pennsylvania aTeaae, and, cross
ing that thoroughfare, eater Lafayett
pquarc, just opposite. He had never been
known to do such a thing before, and natur
ally all eyes followed him. He took a stroll
through that pretty, historic park, and
before returning pansed a moment in front
of th equestrian sates oi Gen. Jackson.
Hera he stood for two or three minutes, ac
cording to the gosdps. with his hands
rfaspsd behind his bock, seemingly lort

fit. Helena gEsing toward Franco, end that
the president was thinking of the eaae and
methods by which the jreat Jackson secured
a second term of tho presidency; but I do not
know by what right even a town gossip pre
romes to diTino the thoughts of every gentle
man who stands for a moment looking at the
famous statue of Gen. Jackson.
This Lafayotto pork, which the president
had looked out upon for nearly four years
and never before set foot in, is one of the
prettiest places in Washington. It contains
seven acres of ground, has great English
trees, and besides tho Jackson statue, a pair
of huge bronre vases cast of cannon captured
by Jackson from tho British. Mr. Chamber
lain also took a look at this statue a day or
two before his marriage. Tha little old
church in which ha was joined in wedlock to
Miss Endicott stands a fewrods north. This is
St. John's Protestant Episcopal church, built
in 1610 by Latrobo, who was tho architect
of the central part of the Capitol. In it have
worshiped Presidents Madison, Monroe, John
Quincy Adams (though a Congregationalist),
Van Bursa, Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Taylor,
Fillmore (though a Unitarian), Pierce,
Buchanan and Arthur. Lincoln, Johnson
and Grant occasionally attended services
there. So old St. John's is fairly entitled to
the distinction of "the state church."

The Capitol excepted, Farragut square is
tho best place in Washington to call up mem
ories of the past. Olio block from St. John's,
fronting tho park, is the residence of W. W.

many years. Fronting the squaro on tho
east is an old brick house in front of which
Daniel E. Sickles killed Philip Barton Key
thirty years ago. In this same houso Secre
tary Seward lived, and was hero attacked by
tho conspirator Payne. Adjoining is tho
Freedmau's bank building, the former home
of Commodore Decatur, and tho queer old

Now that his first disappointment at ths I
result of tho elections has passed away, tho I
president is looking eagerly forward to his
release from public cares. He told a cabinet
minister not long sinco that ho was just bo

young wife, and that March -i will for him

the president so greatly disappointed to learn

Mrs. Cleveland's disappointment is tempered
by a consciousness that her husband's
health, and perhaps his life, havo been pre
served by the Republican triumph, for uobody
imagines tho president could enduro another
four years of such unremitting toil without

TUo Growth of Jerusalem.

trade is favorable to a rapid increase; it lies
among a not very fertile group of mountains ;
it has next to no commerce, and has no manu
factures. Nevertheless, now buildings aro
rising daily; churches, gardem and institu
tions of various kinds aro filling up tho for
merly desolato neighborhood to tho distanco
of half au hour's walk beyond the old limits
of tho city. Tho Jews aro to the front as
builders. Their bouses spring out of tho

They havo erected a new church, consulate,
lodging bouses for pilgrims of the orthodox
national churches and a hospital. Near to
tho Russian group stands tho "German
House," for German Roman Catholics, from
whose top the German and tho papal fiaj

built a high tower upon the Hcunt of Olives,

Tho DelAarto System.
Tho Delsarto s-stem is too comprehensive
to bo incorporated in an article of this kind,
but it uses uo chemical appliances in its de
velopment. It is founded on tho reciprocal
relation of body, mind and soul, and its aim
is tho thorough subjugation of muscular tis
rae to mental discipline. To accomplish this
the pupil is taught by various mechanical
exercises to tako tho will entirely out of
voluntary muscles, to dislocate members at
will as if thoy were dead. This requires
much moro practico than one realizes, but,
onco accomplished in limb and head, there
has been attained perfect freedom of every
part of tho body from all 6tiilness, and also
not only a beautiful suppleness and flexi
bility of muscle, but marked development as
wolL The motions used aro exceedingly
simple and belong to what aro called tho
"freeing exercises," among which are in
cluded tho followiug motions, together with
many more: Drop the hand lifelessly at tho
wrist and with tho muscles of tho arm nbako
and toss it at will as if It wero broken off at
tho wrist and hung only by a string; drop
tho arm in tho same hfelcts manner and with
tho body throw it about in every direction;
drop tho head, let it turn with tho muscles
of tho neck about on the trunk; btand on a
hassock, cut one limb off at tho hip and let it
swing without the uso of its owu muscles,
and so on until 3011 havo learned to tako tho
n ill out of every member, a feat requiring
Then comes tho second step in tho process,
"tho controlling exercise." Tho pupil is
taught just what muscle? should bo used in
certain acts and to express certain emotions,
and tho plastic muscles aro readily influenced
by tho controlling mind. All theso mechan
ical exercises become in time unconsciously
applied, tho mind from within permeates tho
remotest tissue, and tho trained disciplined
niusclo responds in skilled and swift obdi
enco to its dictates. Tho most beautiful ex
hibition of Del3artian principles may bo Ken
in Mary Anderson's Galatea as 6ho quickens
into life and animation. Tho first percep
tible thrill is at tho chest; it quivers up to
tho shoulders, glows in tho face, stint in the
arms last of all; tho speaks, and tho marvel
is wrought. Iow York Sun.
