01 BOYCOTTED BEEF.
The Effect and Intent of the Late
The Extent or Our Export Trade
Our Merchants Criticizing tbo Urlt
New York, July 13. Tho action of the
British House of Commons in passing a
resolution prohibiting, tho importation of
tivo cattle from countries whoso preventive
laws do not afford reasonable security
against tho extension of dlsoaso in cattle
is regarded as a direct blow at American
importation, and the matter was tho subject
of much discussion in the cattlo trade.
The exportation of American oattlo and
fresh meat to Great Britain began about
six years ago, and has swelled sinco into
largo proportions. ,
Tho statistics for tho fiscal year which ,
closed eleven days ago have not yet been
published by tho Government, but thoso
for tho year ending Juno 80,1882, show
that tho United Slates exported to England
during that yoar 01,870 head of cattle,
valued at 0,327,780, and to Scotland 0,132
head, valued at 50(12.850. Tho total
to all countries amounted to
108,110 head, valued at $7,800,277, of
which thoro wcro shipped from tho port of
Now York 83,412 head, valued at 3,332,-001.
It will thus be scon that tho vast '
bulk of the exportations goes to England
and Scotland and that of this trade New
York holds a largo sharo. ,
If tho English quarantine against Amor- '
ican cattlo is maintained strictly this
trado must be lost, and it is loarcd
that the prohibition might injure our export
trndo in frosk bcof, which is of still
larger proportions. This beef is dressod
for the market aud shipped in refrigerators
on fast steamors and on arrival is
sold as fresh meat in tho priucipal markets
of England and Scotland. This trado has
met with only ono hindrnnce, and that hns
been the diiiiculty of procuring ico in England,
so that American beef on arrival
might bo reshlpped to interior markets.
It has thus happened that our beef had not
sold always in tho interior towns atsovory
much less than tho dotno stio artiole, owing
to the cost of preserving it.
During tho year ending Juno 80, 18S2,
our total exportations of fresh beef amounted
to G9,5SU,4GG pounds, valued at 50,708,-881,
of which 49,032,818 pounds, valued at
4,762,514, were sblppod to England, and
15,700,008 pounds, valued at 1,676,935, to
Bootland. Tho olToot on fresh boof of tho
prohibition of the cattlo may bo to prejudice
the farmer with tho British consumer,
but most dealers think that it will causo a
greater demand for fresh dressed beef, and
what is lost in live cattle will bo mado up
iu dressed meat,
A dealer who had been in the trado for
twenty years Bald : " There has been some
money made out of the cattle exportations,
but more had bcon lost, and tho oaicf losers
by the prohibition will be tho English consumers.
Our chidf profit has been mado iu
the shipments of fresh meat Just now
shipments of cattlo are boing made at a
dead loss of from 510 to 515 a head. The
effect of the great exportation has boon to
make cattlo highor here, and there has
I been a recent drop of from 520 to 50 a
' head in the price of British bcof, and the
advance here and the decline there has
Bwept away tho profit of the shippor and
loft a heavy loss in its place. Shipments
aro now made only to save the freight, as
most of tho shippers have contracted freight
room up to September, and by sending the
cattle they save freight rate and havo a
chance of a b tter market in England.
" Tho prohibition is roally an act to protect
the British against
American competitors. The assertion that
our cattle aro diseased is falsa. Thoro are
isolated cases of but our
quarantine regulations aro suoh that the
disoaae is not contracted by tho cattle shipped
aboard or tho consumers at borne. I
-venture to say that thoro has not boon a
ingle caso of mouth-and-loot discaso in
this country. That several cases of this
disoaso were discovered in our oat tie on
arrival at Liverpool is easily explained.
The cattle were brought in the same
steamers which brought English cattle to
tbis country, and from them tho disease
was caught. I suggest that the quarantine
at our ports bo so strict as to practically
prohibit English stock from entering
"The prohibition, as a matter of fact,
may not amount to much. The strict
quarantine lustitutod in England a year
ago has not prevented tho importation of
our cattle. Besides, wo can ship by way of
Canada. The prohibition will not include
British North America, land Canadians
can, as they have already done, buy our
cattle and ship them Jo England as Canadian
Mr. Martin, a doalor, said that, owing
to the docline in the English markot, little
would bo done for several months in oattle
exportation. Ho thought, howovcr, that
whon the prices of beof thoro again advanced
tho English consummers would bo
glad to obtain our oattlo.
An English dealer in this olty explained
tho situation as follows :
" This movement is largely a political
ono. It is a part of tho scheme of the
Conservative party to oater to the interests
of the farmers by protecting them against
American competition. The cattlo prohibition
in England aud the pork prohibition
in Germany are exactly of the same nature.
Disease in the meat is the assigned
motive; protection to home industry
the roal motive Henry Chaplin, the
member of Parliament win introduced
the prohibitory resolution, U a very
wealthy raiser of cattle, and lis interest in
butting out competition te apparent He
is yoty bitter against everything American,
and is glad to prevent the importation
of American product. On the other hand,
tho Government, in the hands of the liberal
Government, is in favor of apsning the
door wide for foreign products, that the
pubjio at larco mar srofit by cheap food.
"Joseph Cnamherfain, President of Iho
Board of Trade, and John Bright are in
favor of this view. I wondor that tho
Government was beaten on this resolution,
as'it has a large working majority. If it
had applied tho 'whip' the resolution would
immediately have been defcatod. The importation
of American bcof and cattle began
six years ago, when the prices of meat
there was so high that tho peasants could
only Afford it occasionally. Since then
American competition has lowered prices."
Mr. Cornelius Dosmund, a prominent
dealer, Bald that this was cloarly a movement
to exclude Amorlcan beef. As to excluding
Canadian cattlo, that is out of tho
question, and everybody knows that tho
bulk of the oattlo Bhippod from Canada
comes from ;bo United States. Tho cfloot
of tho prohibition will bo to inarnaso tin
shipments of dressed bcof.
THE SULTAN'S SUIT.
Do Sues tho I'rovldcnco Tool Com. i I
puny for tlio Vuluo of 50,000 lt!ll.
Newport, It. I., July 13.In 1878 tho
.irklsh Government entered into contracts
rith tho ProvidencQ Tool Company, the
'ormer agreeing to purchase and tho latter
o manufacture 000,000
itlcs and n largo qua tlty of sabres, tho
mtiro oost of which was about 50,000,000.
it was necessary for tho tool company to
lavo special machinory mado In ordor to
egln work on their contracts, and
it was stipulated in tho documents
dint Turkey was to provido a banker's
iredit in London, and maintain tho same

Manufacture and delivery of tho guns
This banker's credit wns to assure tho tool

of tho work.
In ordor to bo ablo to turn ont the firs t
jun under tho contract, the tool company
jad to expend 53,000,000. All of tho guns
vera comploted at last, and the actual contact
prloo was paid. But for certain
tho tool compnny retained 50,000 of
tho rifles, and it was to recovor thoso that
tho Turkish Governmont brought a suit in
quity iu tho Unltod States Supremo
Mr. Justice Blatchford presided. Mr.
IVm. M. Evarts aud Mr. Treadwell Cleveland
of tho firm of Evarts, Southmayd &
Choato representing tho Turkish Government,
and Mr. Win. A. Butler and Mr
Thomas Stlllman, of tho firm of Butler,
3tillman & Hubbard, of Now York, and Mr.
Benjamin F. Thurston, ono of tho foremost
jf Rhode Island lawyers, appearing for tho
I'rovidenco Tool Compnny.
Mr. Evarts mado the argument for tho
Turkish Governmont and attracted the undivided
attention of tho Court and tho host
jf lawyers who were spectators. His
point was that, notwirbpt mding the agreements
to establish certain crodits in
London, the defendant corporation's
in Constantinople when the last
payment became due signed a document to
the effect that that amount, about 40,000,
ropicsentcd all that was due or likely to
'.ie due or to be claimed from tho Turkish
jovernment on behalf of the Piovidence
Tool Company. That, it was argued,
took uvvay the foice of any stipulation
in the contract rogarding paymont or
the establishment of a banker's credit and
tho maintaining the same, and nullified
any agreement to pay a forfeit, and prevented
tho tool company from claiming
any money by reason of damages or losses
justasned through delay.
All the arms, 6aid Mr. Evarts, were
thoroughly inspected, marked, delivered,
and receipted fur, aud became tho property
of tho Turkish Government to all intents
aud purposes, the representative of that
power having paid tho contract price, and
tiie tool company having agreed that the
40,000 was all that was duo for any service,
delay, or damage under tho contract.
The tool company was requested to ship the
guns, but tho plaintiff Governmsut were
astonished at their non-delivery, and upon
inquiring for thorn could not diseovor them.
They did finally, and brought tbis suit to
recover tho property, claiming that, having
paid all that was demanded as the price ot
the goods, tho title in the property is vested
tn tho m. I
Mr. Thurston mado an able argument for
the tool company, and paid a high tribute I
to tho honorable dealings of Gen. Tewfik,
tho turkish representative. Ho assorted
that there was not a contract in the whole
transaction that the Turkish Government
had not violated; that especially was this
true with referonco to tho establishing of a
banker's credit; that the tool company suffered
financially and to a vast amount in
onsequence, boing compelled to ralso funds
in America at high rates when in reality
the Turkish Government ought to havo furnished
tho funds throo months in advance
of tho nanufacture of each lot of guns under
tho contract. Mr. Thurston stated In the
course of his argumont that tho justice of
tho defendant corporation's clnim had boon
recognized by several representatives of tho
Turkish Government in this country.

As a rcpnrter stepped on her deck ho was
met by a small-sized gentleman who nets

that position is partly due to hi small
itnturc, which enables him" to run her machinery
in the contracted allotted for

seven foot high nnd tho between
tho cylinders scarcely ono foot wide.
Below the dock tho vessel Is about 150
feet long and lo feet wide, every avnilnblo
spot boing utilizod for coal, dynamite nnd
torpedo aholls, and as for the officers' quarters,
thoy would for s'.ze set a Fourth ward
lodging-house keeper to blush. Tho chief
naval attraction is forward, and consists of
tho no$v breech-loading torpedo gun invented
by tho famous constructor. Captain
Ericsson. The gun Is a peculiar affair,
and seems to consist af a number of tuboi
of steol firmly rodtlcd with bolts. It
noves on a greased railway and fires thn
projcctllo at the Intended object through
tho wntor about nine feet below tho surface
It Is claimed that during the
of the torpedo no evidenco of its pro-dice
is visible, inasmuch as tho surface-
water is undisturbed. After the torpedo
has left tho gun a charge of comprosscd air
is forced through the bore, and water Is
thus proventod from entering the muzzle.
Tho recoil from tho discharge Is barely
thrco feet, and no sound of tho explosion
can bo heard. Tho reporter in looking
about tho gun-room walked on a largo
needle-shaped shell with a long iron shaft.
"Look out thero I" shouted the guide
' That's tho torpedo."
Quicker than a flash the reporter leaped
lawn and surveyed tho affair from a much
Tho torpedo is about twenty-seven feet
Ion;: and eighteen inches in diameter. It
is tilled for about thrco feet from tho tip
with dynamite, and that is topped with a
cap. A former tost proved that nothing
known to scienco can resist destruction
when once struok by such a proiectilo.
When tho gun is lo.idcd the gunner ascends
a small perch, and by the aid of a (lag pin
trains the torpedo, and, when once within
range, ho connects the battery which explodes
the choree, and quickly gives the
order to roverse tho engino.
At one movement a torpedo was
nt an old hull 400 foet away, and
struck within six inches of tho intended
spot, proving that tho pun works with sufficient
accuracy to striko a ship a long
ditanco from tho boat. Her machinery is
marvoloufl for tho great power it is said to
piwe8. Tho room for tho boilers is very
small, yet, with the added inventions of
Captain Ericsen, tho little vessel can
speed from eighteen to twenty knots an
" What would you do in case your upper
docks woro shot away ?" inquired the reporter.
"That would mako no difference whatever
in tho working of the boat," 'responded th
engineer. " Wo oould have everything
above the water IJne shot away and the
only inconvenionco resulting would be
that tho otneers wouia bo obiigea to mess
and sleep in tho coal-bunkers or some

soarocly be possible to mako an opening

Tlie Obscqnlcs nt McAaley's Mission
Ovor An Abandoned Woiuuu.
Nkw York, July 13. Tho sunlight
streamed through tho stained window at
tho back of Jerry MoAuloy's Mission,
glancing on scriptural mottoes on the wall
and aoross tho pulpit and Boots. Not only
on the wall did tho sunbeams fall, just below
the pulpit they rested aoross lillies and
vlolots, and en the pinched, white fuoo of a
woman resting in a ooffln eovored with
roacs.and greens. It was not a protty fact
to look at. The llpa were drawn tightly
and tho blaok hair brushed up from tho
forehead rendered visible ho marks of decay
of the features. Underneath tho
closed eyelids blaok streaks ran around to
the nose, while tho Lands, now olasped on
the breast, looked like shrivelled parchment.
But there was a time when that
face was beautiful, and the dead Lou Wallace
had been sought after more perhaps
than any of her companions who led wild
and reckless lives near where she was now
Tho was quiet, save for

Often the mothor started for tho coffin, but
tottered back to her seat.
"I only saw her when she was virtuous
and lovely," she murmured, " and it wonld

Behind tho mother sat sovcral girls
dressod in olegant clothes. Thoy had been
aompanlons of Lou Wallaco. Diamonds

Wallaco had lived. Tho windows of the
houso wcro oovored with curtains, but
every once in a whilo thoy were drawn
aside, as somo ono looked across at the

two years Lou Wallace abode with hor.
But Uw girl grew sick, consumptive, Mme.
Itonon says, and then sho wns cast out on
tho streets to die.

and was taken to tho Bellevne Hospital'
they sent word to tho authorities and asked
