than twenty-four hours to sulliciently say
how much 1 appreciate the American peo
ple. My fricu'ls lu Knglaml are delighted
with the noble-hearted manner In w hich
Miss Terry and myself have been treated.
Will you say, 'God bless the; American
people for me;' will you tell them that I
return to my native laud a comparative
young man through their kimlliess? (live
everybody my love and tell them that I
hope to see them before long."

body In America. I feel so sad at part
ing, but I hope to come back soon. Mr.

Tho local press, even tho govern
ment organ hero, is giving attention to
the subject and calling for the Immediate
application of remedies by both the
Domlulon and Provincial goYf-rnnmnts.
Heretofore only young people have been

obtained In accessiblu districts, as an in
ducement for young men to remain. The

rapidly that there was no such thing as
saving the paupers In the addition. Only

jumped from the second story,
aud the two little sons of Mrs.
Wilson. Their mother and sister
perished. The lost inmates comprised
the better class of paupers, who helped

A Skating Rink Artist Plans an Elopa
ment and Gets Left.

ance has been conducting a rink, which
the young ladies patronized extensively.

elopement with the youug lady, who ac
cordingly left her home on Tuesday even
ing, aud, it is said, remained over night
with one of her rc.'atives. As near as
can be learned she made three attempts
to leave ou foot and join the skating rink

ents, rinding remonstrance of no avail,
Anally locked her in a room and it is be
lieved the couple's plans have been frus
trated. Too Mean for Them.

THE DUELLO IN ARKANSAS.
Two Prominent Society Men of
Little Rock Try Conclu
sions with Pistols,
In Settlement of a Midnight Quarrel
at a Ball Lively Scene at tie
One of the Actors in the Impromptu
Affair Seriously Wounded in the
Litti.k Rock, Auk., May 1. At two
o'clock this morning two prominent so
ciety gentlemen of this city, Messrs. R.
Quimi and B. C. Sparks met at the Cap
ital Hotel to settle a dilllculty which be
gan at the ball given by the Athletic As
sociation a few hours before. When the
two men met only a few words passed
between them, but two revolvers
were produced and the principals
began deliberately firing at each other.
The fusillade was continued until both
the pistols were empty. Mr. Quinn was
shot in the shoulder early in the tight, aud
this fact probably accouuts for Mr.
Sparks' escape unhurt. Quinn's wound
is serious. Both gentlemen are
very well known aud popular
throughout tho city, and their
affair has created the most intense
excitement. Quinn is a dry-goods
merchant, and Sparks is an attache
of the German Bank. The original cause
of the trouble has not been made public,
but the dilllculty at the ball was a public
one, and every one felt that it was
not ended there, hence the des
perate duel at the hotel was
not an entire surprise. Both of tho
gentlemen are high strung, and it is a
general matter of wonder that both es
caped with their lives, The duel was
fought very coolly, neither of the princi
pals seeming to be at all excited, and at
its end Mr. Quiun's friends secured
medical attendance promptly. It is not
believed that the injuries will prove fatal,
although he may lose his arm.
The theory advanced by a well-posted
gentleman to your correspondent is that
a lady's name is behind the altercation,
although this is denied.
Society in Little Rock has not had such
an enticing tit-bit of scandal for years.

actuated by promises of largo reward to

Stephenson was their acknowledged
leader, as it Is known that some of the
letters found in F.gan's garden dated back
to that period.
