Ban Francisco, May 23.—The Ship
Owners' association, formed lor the pur
pose of fighting the Sailors' union, has
formulated a pian ',o carry the warfare
into every important seaport on the
Pacific coast, and to uso every available
means to destroy the power and infi
fluence of the union. It is proposed in
the first place to establisii boarding
houses for sailors, to be con
tacted by Bliip owners. Tare and
lodging will be provided very cheaply
and tbe sailors accorded better treat
ment than many are accustomed to
now. At every important port on the
coast tbe snipping of sailors will be ac
complished through the officers of the
association.' Men of all classes, irre
spective of anion or other iiflili ations,
will be accepted so long as t ney are
capable. The claim is made by the ship
owners that they now have at
least three-fifths of all wl.o send out
ships from this port on the membership
list, and they believe ui<> D t, of the re
mainder will join. The proposed plan
will be discussed at a iriereting of ship
owners tomorrow, wh'm financial aid
and the aotive endorse aiont of all inter
ested will be invited.

The Control of tho Nicaragua Canal.
Tho cost of tho Nicaragua canal haa
been variously estimated. Tho latest I
have seen, and I believe it to be tho high
est, is $87,000,000. The company engaged
in its construction proposes to raise in
some way $100,000,000—an excess of $18,
--000,000_ abovo tho estimated cost—to pay
interest till the canal is in operation and
to provide for contingencies that may
arise. Tho sum is npt large if the pat
ronage tho canal shall receive proves to
be anything like what is predicted and
There nro differences of views as to
how tho canal shall be constructed and
controlled when in operation. As it will
prove most advantageous to our own
commorce, and as under public control
excessive prsiita will not be made on the
money invested, thoro is a prevailing
sentiment that tho government should
build it and manage it aftor it is built;
that it should be frco to American ship
ping, and a tax imposed on foreign pa
trons only to an extent that Is necessary
to pay the expense of management and
repair and n reasonable income on the

The Sun Myths.
It was in Bayard Taylor's day that the
sun myth had its vogue. One night at a
party Taylor was greatly bored by the
persistent efforts of a guest to disouss
sun myths. No matter what, direction
the convocation might tako this person
would ruthlessly drag it back again to
his favorite topic.
At last tho distressed poet raised a
very interesting question in regard to tho
threadbare subject. "Did you ever
think," he asked, "that the name Smith
so common all over tho world is derived
from sun myth?" No one had ever
dreamed of such thing. Max Muller
had overlooked the point completely.
"Quito possible, certainly most plaus
ible," said Taylor, "Sun myth, Sumyth,
Smyth, Smith, and some still spell tho
name with a y." The discussion was

San Dikoo, May 23.—An incident that
may lead to a government inquiry is re
ported by passengers of the Pacific Mail
steams.- City of New York, Captain
Johnson, which arrived this morning
from Panama, en route for San Fran
cisco. On the passage down the steamer
did not touch at Sao Juan del Bur, because
of the revolution in Nicaragua. Enter
ing the Port of Corinto the passengers
were amazed to see the soldiers training
a big Krupp gun on the vessei from the
government barracks, all ready, rs after
wards learned, to touch it off. ' This is
in direct contravention of international
courtesy. Government officers then
boarded the vessel to search her, tbe
supposition being tbat she had touched
at San Juan, where the revolutionists
are in control, and was bringing revolu
tionists to aid in seizing Carinto, which
is very weak, by reason of nearly all the
able-bodied mtn being with the army
on tho frontier. It was further learned
tbat the same gun had been
trained on tbe San Jose of
tbat line on the up voyage.
During the search there debarked the

What "Alcohol" Meant In 1300.
The reservation of tho name of alcohol
for the product of the distillation of wine
is modern. Till the end of the eighteenth
century the word, of Arabic origin, sig
nified any principle attenuated by ex
treme pulverization or by sublimation.
It was applied, for example, to the pow
der of sulphurot of antimony (kohoul),
which was used'for blackening '-ho eyes,
and to various other substances, as well
oa to spirits of wine. No author has been
found ot the thirteenth century, or oven
of the fourteenth century and later, who
applied the word alcohol to the product

Education nnd Long ( !fo.
It is a common heliof that education
wears out tho body and invigorates the
mind. Also that nervous diseases are
moro common among civilized nations
than among tlio savagos, bocauso the
latter without education are able to at
tain and maintain physical iwfection.
It is claimed by myself, us well aa other
investigators, that tho educated man, tho
man who studies most, while not physic
ally strong, is yet not weak and is much
moro ablo to withstand a given period
of nervous tension than is tho man with
tho excellent physique und tlio moder
ate comprehension. In fact the intel
ligent mind may be physically sick all
through lifo and yet live on in this mis
ery to a good old age, while the strong
physique breaks down early, and having
no mental or nervous acumen dies very
quickly nnd only at a moderate age.
Among tho lowest African tribes, cur
rently supposed to be almost devoid of
nerves, nervous diseases are very com
mon. In fact, entire tribes are mere
wrecks and only live a little time. It is
safo to say that with the advent of civ
ilization theso tribes wonld regain phys
ical strength. My best study has been
given to tiie prominent educators of the
world, most of whom I find physically
weak, but livingon and doing work daily
that would kill tlio ordinary laborer in
less than three years.—lnterview in St.

Tlio Kstlnct Northern "Sea Cow."
In the year 1754 the Behving explor
en discovered gigantic species of ry
tints, or "northern sea cow." These
enormous manatees were similar in gen
eral habit 3to thoso of the South Ameri
can coast and were from £0 to oO feet in
length and from 10 to 20 [fe t in girth.
They were very stupid, harmless beasts,
and lived by browsing on seaweeds and
Other marine growths near tho land. The
sailors wero not slow In finding out tbat
a sea cow steak beat seal meat "all hol
low." From 1754 until 1708 they were
tho principle food of tho sailors and ex
plorers on onr western coast. This bo
ing the case, it is not nt all surprising
that the northern sea cow, never a very
numerous species, should become ex
tinct in the short space of 14 years. Tho
last of manatees was killed in
September, 17C8,afew months less than
14 years after the discovery of tho first
one. —St. Louis Republic.
Two Things That Scare a Negro.

POOR RQiADa CAUSE DISCONTENT.
They Have none Min-h to destroy the Olory
of New England Homes.
Good roada are of paramount impor
tance to every-'citizoti, but to tho farmer
esptcially. For tiie part few decades
the farmer haa devoted his attention to
the problem of producing crops of the
best qnality in tho greatest abundance
at tho least cost, and tn the solution of
thin problem ho has succeeded admira
bly. But the longer and tho better and
tbe cheaper hia product, the poorer, ap
parently, does he find himself to bo at
the end of the year. Others eeem to gain
the profit; loss falls to bis share.
One cause of this state of affairs is not
difficult to find. The average farmer has
not yet comprehended and solved the
problem of exchange. The expense of
getting his produco to market and of re
turning those commodities for which he
has exchanged the products of the farm
falls as a heavy burden upon the agri
culturist. The cost of cartage of crops
one way from the farm to the railroad
station, 5 to 10 miles distant, and of
fuel, fertilizers, machinery, commercial
feed stuffs, furniture, clothing and pro
visions from the markets to the country
home has been so great as to reduce the
value of farms, a little distant from tho
centere, 50 to 100 per cent, causing them
in many cases to be abandoned.
For example, a farm of 25 acres of ar
able land in a square lot containing a
pretty honse of five rooms in good re
pair, a bam, plenty of fruit trees, located
in the midst g.f magnificent scenery, on
a main road, li miles from Amherst col
lege, .Massachusetts, within two mileß of
two stations on two railroads, hardly a
mile from church and schoolhouso and
3tore, has been for years offered for sale
without a purchaser and has often been
vacant, while many have paid $r>o or $100
moro for a tenement of five rooms in a
second story of a village house than was
asked for the rent of the whole farm

Poor roads are an efficient factor in
producing the discontent of our rural
population. Dusty and stony in sum
mer, muddy and deluged in spring and
autumn, rough or slippery or drifted
with snow in the winter, poor roads are
dangerous to lifo and limb, a constant
tear upon horses and harnesses, wagons
and carriages. They isolate tbe farmer's
family from the school, from the church,
from the postofflce and all of its educa
tional facilities, from all the social cen
ters of thought and advancing civiliza
tion. They have done more than any
other single factor to destroy the glory
of the New England home of olden time,
to produce the abnormal growth of the
city, with its increasing evils, and to
make agriculture unretnunerative to the
What can be done to show the farmer
the necessity of good roads? Poor, bad,
abominable roads are common. A piece
of road properly constructed upon which
the farmer might drive his teams would
do more to convince him of the value

him annually into the town meeting
and his representative into the legisla

The Klist Sleeping Car.
No si:ig!e thing lias contributed mm-?
to the comfort of modern life than the
Pullman car. Its inventor, George M
Pullman, worked out tho details of hi*
invention while n merchant in Colorad'
in 1850. In 1804 he carried his idea U
Chicago and employed a master car
builder of the Alton road ot a salary of
|100 a month to superintend the con
struction of a model car. The inventor
was determined that it should be th*
handsomest car in all respects that had
ever been made in the country. He
came on to New York and hero hap
pened to meet the artist who had just
decorated the house- of Samuel J. Til
den. He at once closed with this artist,
took him west and set him at work dec
orating the car.
When the Pioneer was finished it had
cost the extraordinary sum of $18,000, a
large price even now for n sleeping car.
It waa a wonder to everybody. It v/as
just as Mr. Pullman had eip6cted. The
beauty of the finish and the marvelous
Innovation he had made wero advertised
far and near by the newspapers and by
railroad men, and some of tho latter be
gan to believe that the ideas of the in
ventor after all wero practicable.—New
A Suit of TTllklo Colllna' ClMhes.
The tweed suit that Wilkie Collins
purchased in Philadelphia as he parsed
through the city so many years ago is
still bore. The novelist by accident
ruined one that bo brought over with
him by spilling broth over it and stepped
across Chestnut street to invest in a
new ono before returning to hit; hotel
Collins instructed the tailor to send tho
spoiled one to his rooms, and when he
gave his name the clothier said, "Aro
you the authorof 'No Name' and 'Arma
dale?' " Wilkie had to own up, and tho
tailor was overcomo with pleasure, an
nouncing that he was tho most sincere
admirer of Collius in America. Un
fortunately tho suit was not a good fit,
but the novelist had tco much delicacy
to acquaint his sincere admirer with the
fact. So the garments were relegated
to George H. Boker's attic, where they
remained over a generation.—Philadel
