Steamship Company, and assistant to
f resident J. J.Hill,of the Great North
era Railroad, has resigned, and his re
signatiou has been looepted.
The news of Mr. Parrel's retirement
does not come as a surprise, as rumors
of his intended resignation have been
common sinoe early in the year.
Mi. Farrel came to the Great
Northern as head of its steamship ser
vice more than two years ago. He
began his career as a railroad man in
1877. He was at that time a laborer
on the Chicago and North Western.
In 187.> he went to the Chicago Mil
waukee and St. Paul. Latei he was

of the si me road.

Admiral Togo's Home.
The home of the Japanese Admiral
Togo In Tokyo is characterized by an
unpretentious appearance. The exterior
of the dwelling contains nothing which
could Indicate to an outsider that It Is
the home of one of the ablest naval
commanders In history. The only thing
to attract attention to It Is the fre
quent stopping of groups of admirers
in front of the house to shout "BanzalT"
In honor of the hero. The house Is a
small one in the native style, but it Is
surrounded, like the typical Japanese
home, with a beautiful garden. Over
one of the gateposts Is an electric
lamp, and under it Is a card bearing
the admiral's name.

GROUND FOR SCANDAL
EXPLOSION OF GUNBOAT BENNINGTON
MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY CRIMINAL
NEGLIGENCE OF HIGH OFFICIALS WHO
KNEW GUNBOAT WAS UNSEAWORTHY.
WASHINGTON.D. C. July 24.—1n-
quiry today among naval officials re
lative to placing the blame for the
Bennington horror showed a consen
sus of opinion that the investigaton of
the accident should be most rigid,
and that a great scandal may develop
with disastous results to men who
stand high in the navy department.
Grave oharges are being made that it
was criminal negligence on the part
of some one high up in naval anthori
ty whioh sent the Bennington to sea
when it had been reported that its
boilers were unsafe and that the boat
should therefore be undergoing re
Sensational developments regarding
the oarelessness of several naval offi
cials are expeoted to ensue in the invep
tigations of the court of inquiry whioh
Hear Admiral Goodrioh will appoint
to determine the cause of the explosion
and determine the responsibility for
the management of the engine room
of the gunboat. One of the most im
portant things to be cleared up is the
fixing of the blame for the failure to
repair the boiler of the vessel when it
wa» reported in a dangerous condit
ion. An engineering officer on duty
at the navy yard today said:
"Official reports from the Benning
ton received months ago and on rile in
the bureau of steam engineering, show
that doubts have existed for a 'ong
time as to the fitness of the gunboat's
boilers. Commander Luoien Young's
predecessor on the Bennington was
Cossuth Niles. A few weeks before
he was relieved in November last, he
report°d to the navy department that
the Bennington's boilers were In bad
sbape and that should the damage
grow worse, there wouid be urgent
necessity for going to the navy yard
for repairs. A trial was ordered and
the inspector visited the vessel and re
ported that it was in need of exten
sive repairs. The gunboat was then
slated to go to Honolulu; but the in
spector's report caused it to go to the
navy yard and small repairs were
made and th»n the vessel was allowed
to start for Honolulu. So far as
known no repairs were made on the
boilers during the trip to Honolulu

A short time ago some men were

they said they had leave to put the
poles where they pleased. The old

Crockett nnd the Mnlen.
When Davy Crockett sat in the na
tional legislature as a representative of
the state of Texas he had many clashes
with men of more education, but less
wit, than himself. It is told of him
that one day while standing in front
of his hotel on Pennsylvania avenue a
swarm of mules trotted by under the
custody of an overseer from one of the
stock farms in Virginia. A congress
man from Boston, who was standing
near by, attracted Crockett's attention
to the unusual sight, saying:
"Hello there, Crockett. Here's a lot
of your constituents on parade. Where
are they going?"
The celebrated hunter looked at the
animals with a quizzical glance, and
then, turniug to the other, said quietly,
but with great emphasis, •'They are go
ing to Massachusetts to teach school."
Tli.- Kitchen In Chirm.
"In China everything seems to us to
go by contrary, and the front part of

says a missionary. "Upon entering the
bouse at the front door one is intro

and so Important an adjunct to a
household is the kitchen that the popu
lation of towns and cities throughout
the empire is reckoned by the number
of kitchens within the walls. Brick
chimneys in China are a thing unheard
of, and the smoke from the fire is al

Is usually built in a mud stove, for
any other kind of a stove is unheard

First Transatlantic Yacht Race.
The three schooners, Henrietta,
Vesta ,*uid Fleetwing, were the con
testants in the first across the ocean
yacht race, in 1806, for a stake of
$90,000. Those three yachts made the
race in the depth of winter, starting
from New York harbor on Dec. 11,
186t>, and finishing off the Needles a
fortnight later, the Henrietta crossing
the line on Christmas eve, the Vesta
and Fleetwing finishing in the early
morning hours of the great holiday.

that 3.000 mile passage they were ac

An Odd Wreadinß Match.
The extraordinary custom of wres
tling for a bottle prevails at Haliaton.
In Leicestershire, England, where the
villagers have to brace themselves for
action on Easter Monday in order to
retain possession of a plot of ground
left to them in the good old days. The
bottle is a large wooden one, bound
round with iron rims, and contains
ale. It is thrown on the ground that
the men of the neighboring village of
Melbourne may try to wrest It from
the inhabitants of Haliaton. When the
battle is over, the victors drink the
contents. The same bottle has done
duty for nearly half a century. As a
preliminary to the great struggle, two
meat pies and two dozen penny loaves
are scrambled for.

A dead silence followed for a min
