On an occasion like the present it is
n4iteu;ly pr.per for us to remember all
iwe things for -which w can or ousht .
be thankful and Torget the rest They will
Come back fast twougii in the indigestible
dreams of the ensuing night. Custom and
our pious President unite in admonishing
us tj thankful neR.s and to tiianksgiving.
Ob, Utcn let us be joyful and turn it ou
As a nath.i. Set us ghe thanks that our
crop uhhHughh, and a J-liortage in other
countries, promise to the Ainerjcan farmer
KjHe further period of living prices f-j;
the products of his labor.
"We should be tliankful that during the
year matters In general have been noworse
ttiau taey are. Tin- American people have
been visited with many sore afflictions
since they gave thanks, awl those of them
-who could, ate turkey a year ago. They
have been grievously burdened with the
Dinglcy tariff, -which protects and raises
revenue only for trusts and monopolies.
They have seen tlieir House of Kepiesenta
Uve suppressed and their Ctmstitution de
fied by a man sworn to serve the one and
protect the other. They have seen their
Government in unholy alliance with Spain,
using their navy to help in the destruction
of liberty in Cuba. They have had liard
times, yellow fever and the Schiff-Morgan
railrtad deal; but they Imve beaten the
Eritish at nitration treaty, gotten rid of
Grovcr Cleveland, and a good sliare of them
have managed, by hook or by crook, to
live to this day. "Wherefore, let us be
thankful ftr that, and aho because we have
a Congress in which there is not a majority
ot goW monomaniacs; so tliat the worst
wIhcJi could happen the country perhaps
may be averted until the people have a
chance to take a further ha ml in the mat
ter at the poll6 a twelvemonth hence.
"We heartily wish everybody a good din
ner today. May digestion wait on appe
tite awl health on both! and, as Dickens
saw, a competent waiter on all three: and

faction and self-complacency to the worthy

Germany In the 1'n'ciflc.

CHINAMAN MITiCDERED BY NEGRO

See Their Mini-ter.
The Indignation of the Chinese colony at
Norfolk- Va , and Portsmouth. Va., ovar
on Sunday, bv a gang of negioes, has
spread to Washington, and there i littie
doubt that tliemuidercr will be prosecuted
to the full extent or the law. Theofriciui
news of the minder as brought here
yesterday by a delegation of eight China
men, who called upon the Chinese minister
to ask that he take some steps looking
to the punishment of the muidercrs.

resident of Not folk, Va , and was clubbed
to death and lobbed by Samuel Williams
and Charles Wilson, two worthless negroes
The killing was investigated by a coroners
jury in Norfolk, "Va., yesterday, and as
a lesu't the accused are held for murder.
The Chinese lesident of Not folk, Va..
and Poitsmoutti, Va., however, do not
think tlint unless some strong influent
is brought to hear the murderers will be
convicted, and for thi& reason asked the
iutcrventiou of the Chinese minister her-.-.
The minister Infoimeu" dip visitors that
he would take no stnpsln the matter unless
the State authorities of Virginia failed
to mete out full justice to tlie muideiers.
Another object of the visitors was to
induce the local Chinese to contribute to
a fund to be used In emploving extia
counsel foi the prosecution of the case.
Th" Chinese minister was called on this
morning, but declined to say anything
relative to the matter.

depth ot about fifteen Teet, are built c-f
solid concrete, and are six feet thick jit
the base and four and a half at the top.
Oil the top of the concrete there is a
laye; of asphalt halt an inch chick. The
walls rest on piles driven from thirty to
lorty feet, and cut off at high water
level. The basin is 500 feet long and -15
Teet wide, and will hold fourteen fet or
water in tne main department. At either
end there are shallow projections ot the
boMit, of rifty feet each, making the otal
length 600 feet.
These projections are to be used Tor
the purpose of rigging the models Tor the
towing appaiatus, which consists ot a
heavy carriage ofaboutflfteeii tons' -weight
that spans the basin and runs on double
tracks, and -will tie moved by electricity.
This carnage to which the models will be
attached in their movement through tie
water will contain the delicate meclianUm
that is to note the speed and resistance
of the model, which will be a guide in
determining the speed possible to be ob
tained by the vessel when built.
Considerable interest is manifested on 'he
part of naval experts as to the results
that are to be obtained by this method or
testing tin- speed and resistance of the new
vessels of the Navy before they are built.
The basin is to be inclosed bv a structure
ot brick, fifteeu feet in height.
