Socialist. Speakers and Sympathizers
Arrested at Seattle.
Seattle, Wash., Oct. &).Eight so
cialist speakers and a like number of
sympathizers were arrested here for
speaking on the streets. The arrests
came as a result of the defiance pro
gramme of the socialists of Seattle,
who have arranged for their speakers
to appear on the streets every night
and attempt to hold public meetings.
Mayor Gere has declared that he will
not allow the street meetings. The
socialists in turn have secured about
forty speakers and will continue the
meetings as long as the volunteer
martyrs last. The speakers were not
permitted to say more than a.sentence
before being bundled into the patrol
wagon and sent to jail, where they
were refused bail and placed in the
chain gang tank. Among those ar
rested was Mrs. Hattie P. Titus, wife
of a prominent socialist leader in this

Break In Ranks of Strikers.
New York, Oct. & .There are evi
dences of a general break in the ranks
of striking telegraph operators, as
large numbers have applied to the
companies for reinstatement. One of
the companies has received thirty ap
plications within the last twenty-four
hours. The cause of the break does
not appear to result from any formal
or concerted action, but from gradual
disintegration and a feeling among the

The Reward of Haughtiness.
The other day a chemist was awak
ened about 1 o'clock in the morning by
a lad clamoring at his shop door. Open
tag his bedroom window, he saw a
small boy, who was gesticulating
"What's the matter?" inquired the
"I want a penny'orth o' camphorated
chloroform for t' toothache!" howled
The chemist was not overjoyed
when he found how small the order
was for which he had been so rude^
awakened from his slumber but, tak
ing pity on the sufferer, he dressed
himself and went downstairs to sup
ply the much desired relief. While
measuring the drug he could not help
doing a growl at the lad.
"It's like your cheek," he observed,

night for a paltry penn'orth of chloro-

The Black Hole of Calcutta.
A scientist, writing of the black hole
of Calcutta and its atmosphere, says:
"On the 20th of June, 1756, about 8
o'clock in the evening, 146 men wer
forced at the point of the bayonet in
to a dungeon eighteen feet square,
They had been but a few minutes con
fined in this infernal prison before
every one fell into a perspiration so
profuse that no idea can be formed of
It This brought on a raging thirst,
the most difficult respiration and an
outrageous delirium. Such was the
horror of their situation that every in
sult that could be devised against the
guard without and all the opprobrious
names the viceroy and his officers
could be loaded with were repeated to
provoke the guard to fire upon them
and terminate their sufferirigs. Before
11 o'clock the same evening one-third
of the men were dead, and before 6
next morning only twenty-three came
out alive, but most of them in a high
putrid fever. All these dreadful effects
were occasioned by the want of atmos
pheric air and by their breathing a su
perabundant quantity of nitrogen emit
ted from their lungs."
The head of a large mercantile house
received not long ago a letter from a
millionaire banker In the west asking
that the latter's son be placed in some
business house where he could learn
"things from the bottom up.'* The
writer explained that his offspring was
"no good at home."
Soon after the western millionaire
received the following reply from his
New York friend:
