Nw Yenx, August 28.-President
Cleveland's message on the Senate's rejec
tion of the fisheries treaty isstill the upper
most theme in political discussion. It is
impossible to overestimate the astonish
ment and consternation which this well
timed bomb caused in the camp of the
enemy. It shattered the main string of
their campaign fiddle-the pro-English
proclivities of the Democratic party as
seen through protection spectacles. In the
opinion of the directors of the Democratic
campaign at the national headquarters, Mr.
Blainte's rabid utterances in point will still
further entran the Irish-American ele
meat from te publican party.
.One of the visitors at headquarters yes

time since the Chicago Convention, Mr.
Jewett says, has there been so much en

ocratic ticket. He thinks the State is safe
beyond peradventure. His committee have
organized the State thoroughly by coun

BUSTING OF A BUSTLE.
A Lady Knocked Down in Church by an
Explosion-A Suit for Damages.
(From the San Francisco Examiner.)
Those persons who attended the read
ings of Charles Dickens, Jr., at the First
Congregational Church about two
months ago, will recall, when their
memory is refreshed, a peculiar and em
barrassing accident that happened to a
lady who was present one evening.
Mr. Dickens was delivering in his most
English style the story about Dr. Mari
gold, the philosophical "cheap jack,"
and had almost awakened a feeling of
interest in the minds of his audience.
A tall, finely formed lady, with pat
rician features and dignified gait, entered
by the left door about this time and
walked up the aisle. She was accompa
nied by her husband, whose military
bearing added effect to the aristocratic
appearance of his better half.
On reaching a seat a few yards from
the platform she gave a swing to her dress
as she attempted to sit down gracefully.
But her foot caught in the carpet and
she stumbled and fell heavily on the
As she did so a muffled report was
heard, and the lady was observed to
collapse with a lurch. Her face turned
first a deathly pale and them a carmine
hue, and she sprang to her feet in great
Mr. Dickens stopped a moment in his
iesding at the sound of the explosion,
if such it was, and the finding that noth
ing serious had apparently happened,
he continued his efforts. A titter, com
bined with a broad smile, however, pass
ed from one to another of those who
divined the nature of the trouble.
The husband, who possessed a man's
hardness and who could not sympathize
with a woman's chagrin and tender
sensibility, clasped his arms around his
wife's waist as she arose, and told her
not to look and act so foolishly.
But the explosion of a patent bustle is
no small matter to a lady, and although
she at length consented to stay, she evi
dently felt ill at ease all'the evening. A
large shawl was thrown over her shoul
ders to hide the blushes which even stole
around the back of her neck.
It was an accident deserving of the
most sympathetic consideration, but in
stead-it received only ridicule.
No one dreamed that this story would
be the subject of a civil suit, and as it
was not published at the time, through
sympathy with the lady, it was thought
by those present that it was lost on the
Justice of the Peace Boland found
yesterday afternoon that this was not so,
when Mrs. Elsie Wilkins was sued by
Miss Margaret Towan to recover $20 in
the Justice's Court, on account of goods
supplied and work and labor performed.
Mrs. Wilkins was the wearer of the
bustle and Miss Towan her dressmaker.
Miss Towan took the stand, end said:
"The defendant-urdered me to make a
dress for her, which must be a perfect
fit. iShe purchased the rich, dark brown
material, so I was to charge $20 for my
labor and a bustle. 1 took exceptional
pains to fit her, but it seems to me that
she varies in size from day to day, and re
quires an alteration of her dress after
every meal, as she etxpands and contrsots
"As to the bustle, I would say that I
am the agent of importers of the bustle
in Chicago. I only give the printed
guarantee of the firm and a caution to
purcasers. I hear that the bustle burst
when the lady sat down in church, and
she was so enraged that she refused to
pay my bill, but I-ean swear that I told
her what the iconsequences would be if
she were not careful in sitting down."
"Do you maintain that theaskirt ofth
dress fitted Mrs. Wilkin?" queried
Attorney W. W. Matthews.
"I do, sir.,,
"Don't o know that it was discarded
"There was no reason for it, if such
was the case."
"What kind of a bustle was this?"
"It was in shape of across between a
football and a birdeage. The outerocover
ing was of rabber, and bymeana of a
screw in the rigithand corner it could
be openedshea innte by using a tube
tht-anmpaie it; then 'the orifice
could be- closed and the bustle made
air-tight.' This style is called 'T'he
Eclipse,' and for grace and comfort it
eclipses all the other protuberanoeszmade
of wire or other materials."
The witness then procured a similar
article to the one in dispute, and it was
a source of amusement to his Honor and
the spectators present, while the ladies
slyly touched their cheeks with powder
rasto hide their blushes.
ayGilbert, a ~ beautyin a cream
oteddress, 'ai she was one- of Miss
Towan's assistants, and could swear that
no special guarantee was made that the
bustle would not explode under any
Petriek Dufisaid- he found the re
mains of what he thought was a toy
balloon when he swept out the church
next morning but it proved, however, to
be the coeo of the bustle.
Mrs. Wikn then retired into the
Judge's chambers, and reappeared in a
few minutes wearing the dress in ques
She said it was too tight across the
hips and impeded her progress in walk
ing. When she tried to sit down the
tension was too great and the dress
improver accordingly burst. The plaintiff
had extolledthemerits of "The Eclipse,"
and guaranteed that there would be no
danger-of any such distressing predica
ment as that in which she had been sub
'case being submitted, Justice
Boland closely inspected the dress and
specimen bustle and then said:
"This is a most peculiar case. I have
read of bustles being made of horsehair,
muslin, newspapers, pillows, bird cages
and even quilts. I have heard of alarm
clocks atikn the hour within the folds
of alaysdress. Smuggled cigars, jewel
ry andm.d have also bebrought
to light, but never before heard of an
air-tight bustle explodirgin ca:.ch, and
being made the subject of a civil suit.
Not being married yet the situation is
somewhat delicateand perpiexing to me,
but still looking at the case from a legal
standpoint, I think wecan adjust matters
satisfactorily. The dress appears a little
tight, but still very becoming, and were
a non-explosive bustle used, this might
never have been brought."
His Honor then deducted $8.50 from
the bill, as the detendant set upaclim
for damages for the explosion trouble.
He then rendered judgement in favor of
the plaintiff for $11.50.

Comical Errors Arising from the Similari
ty of Two Cruisers.
The similarity between the new steel
cruisers Atlanta and Boston are causing
a great deal of confusion in the Brook
lyn Navy Yard, where the batteries of
both vessels are now undergoing alters
tions. They are twin ships, and are so
exactly alike that even neither com
manders nor crew can distinguish one
from the other even after reaching the
The Boston is lying at the wharf di
rectly at the foot of the road from the
main entrance to the water front, while
the Atlanta lies to the east of the big
dry dock. Going from the entrance to
the Atlanta the officers of that vessel are
obliged to pass the Boston, and very
often they walk on board, mistaking her
for their own vessel. Recently Captain
Francis M. Bunce, who commands the
Atlanta, boarded the Boston and walked
down into the cabin. The arrangement
of the furniture was somewhat different
from that in his own vessel, but it was
not until he had taken off his hat and
seated himself that he noted his sur
roundings and recognized his error.
The surgeon of the Atlanta did the
same thing. He walked into the state
room in the Boston corresponding with
his own on the other vessel, and it was
the absence of some trinkets that adorn
his quprterm thit led him to inquire
where he was.
The beat joke of the whole trouble,
however, is on Lieutenant Bradley A.
Fiske of the Atlanta. He was outin the
yard a day or two ago drilling his gun
squad, and when retreat from drill was
sounded he marched the whole squad on
board the Boston. He was at the rear
of the squad, and his men had formed
in line on the Boston's deck when he
walked over the gangplank, and was
saluted by Captain F. M Ramsey, who
"Is this a boarding party?"
A hearty laugh and explanation fol
lowed this sally, and then Lieutenant
Fiske marched his men back to their
The work on the batteries of the two
vessels is progressing rapidly, and the

by to-morrow night. Monday she will

and then return to the Navy Yard.

THE BURNED COMPRESS.
A New One Going Up Beside it Before the
Iron was Cold.
(Charlotte Chronicle, Aug. 80.)
The first intimation that a good many of
our citizens had of the burned cotton com
press, was when they opened their papers
yesterday morning and saw the local, "still
smoking" as it were. Crowds flocked to
the platform all day yesterday to see the
ruins, which were an odd looking sight, by
the way. The frame building had been
burned from around the compress, leaving
the hugh iron machinery standing high in
the air, the steam chests, cranks, beams and
"teeth" warped by the heat. The ponder
ouis machine was unbroken, but was ren
dered useless by the heat. The platform
for yards around had been burned on top,
and looked as if somebody had given itsa
coat of black paint, the sheds of the Rich
mond and Danville depot were charred,
and a half dozen blackened bales of cotton
were scattered around.
The next thing that attracted attention
was a gang of workmen engaged in tearing
up the platform just north of the still
smoking ruins of the old compress, and
digging a foundation for the erection of a
new, Improved and more powerful press
than the old one. The new press is to cost
$50,000 and will be built by the Richmond
and Danville and the Carolina Central
roads. It will be of the latest improved
Morse patent, and will have a capacity
equal to that of the largest presses in the
South. The build enclosing the press will
be of brick. The excavation for the foun
dation was almost completed yesterday,
and will be finished up this morning, when
brick laying will begin. It is expected to
have the new press put up and in working
order inside of sixty days, so that the de
struction of the old press will not materially
cripple the shipping business at this point.
The new one is to be located half on the
Richmond and Danville ground and half
on the Carolina Central ground. The rail
road had decided upon its erection some
months ago, and the workmen and materials
were en route here even while the old press
was burning. The losses and insurance
were as stated in yesterday's paper, $50,
000 on the press, with an insurance of $20,
000. The burned cotton belonycd to Mr.
John Vanlandingham, and was insured.
The fire originated on the second floor of
the compress building, where there was a
lot of waste material. It was beyond
doubt the work of an incendiary. The en
tire interior of the building was in flames
betore the fire was discovered.

A Big Al-American Team Will Snow the
Australians the Game.
(N. Y. Star, August 29.)
Mr. A. G. Spalding, who returned fom
his trip to Fire Island yesterday. was seen
by a representative of the Star at his office
regarding his Australi:n trip. on which he
will be accompanied by the Chicago team,
of which he is backer. His arrangements
are about completed, and he has selected
nearly all the players who are to accom
"We will leave Chicago between October
20 and 26, and will sail from San Francisco
November 15," said Mr. Spalding. "We
have practically chartered the 3,000-ton
steamship Alameda, and will have ample
accomodations for from 75 to 100 passen
gers. besides our own party, many of whom
intend to take their fatpilies with them.
"For the All-American team I have so
far selected Mr. John Ward, of the New
Yorks. as captain. The others are Fogarty
and Wood. of the Philadelphias, Carroll,
the catcher of the Pittsburgs, Tiernan, of
the New Yorks, Hanlo-,, captain of the
Detroits, and Mr. Kelly is waiting to close
a contract with me.
"I did not pay much attention to base
ball while away, but the Chicago team is
working very hard for the pennant, and
should the team have the same luck as the
New Yorks they will come very close to
winning it. I suppose it is looked upon
almost as heresy here in New York to say
or even intimate that the New Yorkers will
not win the pennant.
"I will stand all expenses and pay all
salaries. I am responsible for the success
or failure of the trip. My object in visit
ing Australia is to introduce our national
game there, believing that when they see
it played by professionals, the Australians
will find enough merit in it to follow it up.
Whether they will or not is a question."
Mr. Spalding intends to make quite a
point of cricket, and thinks on account of
the superior batting ability of the ball
players, that they will be able to give the
Australians a lively tussle at their own
game. Many of the Chicago team, are
dailing practicing at cricket. Mr. Spald
ing will take along two good bowlers; one
of them, Rogers of the Detroit Cricket
Club, is a wonder.

Fighting the Jute Bagging Trust.
ALNTA. August 30.-Reports that
insurance men would not take risks on
cotton unless baled in jute bagging seem
to be without foundation, so far as the
riumpanies. in terc i are conceined.
The agents of insurance companies at
Wilmington, N. C., seem to be the only
ones taking that stand, and they are
only local agents, with no power in the
Southeastern Tariff Association, which
regulates such matters. A prominent
officer in that association said to-day
that there was no reason why cotton
cloth or any other substitutes for bag
ging should not be used; that jute bag
ging was one of the most inflammable
stuffsthat could be used, and so far as
the insurance companies were concerned
any substitute would be allowed. Wil
mington merchants say they will not
take cotton except in jute bagging. On
the other hand Charleston factors in
telegrams to cotton planters of Wilkes
county, in this State, urge them to send
their cotton and say they will receive it
in cotton cloth or any other suitable
substitute. In North Carolina pine
straw cloth, such as matting is made of,
is being used. *In North Georgia some
factors are buying cotton- done up in
pine boards. In other places non-com
bustible cotton cloth is being used. The
.farmers seem bound to break the back
of the trust and they are receiving the
moral support of the people.
