Siorx City, lo.,— About four weeks
ago the store of Ludlow (.'lark & Co., of
this place, was burglarized of silks
valued at ? 3,100. Last night a man and
woman giving the name of Mills were
arrested, who said they came from St.
Paul. When the woman was searched
a receipt for a trunk at a warehouse
was- found sewed up in her skirt. On
opening the trunk officers found partfof
the silks taken from Ludlow Clark &
Cos., and also a Quantity of cloth taken
from Hirtour & Co. about the same
time. The parties were held to the
district court and an officer will go to
St. Paul to learn more of them.
THE CAIXE MURDER.
No Positive Evidence at the
Siorx City, la., June I.— Very little
lias been learned at the coroner's in
quest as to the Came murder, reported
yesterday. Cavanaugh told so many
stories and was so uneasy that it was
thought when brought face to face with
the bloated corpse of Came he would
weaken and make a confession, but he
denied that he had ever seen the dead
man, and declared that it was not
Came, who, be maintains, has run
away. McSwiggan. the other man

DYNAMITE WAS READY
To Blow a Tower Murderer Into
Special to the Globe.
Tower, Minn., June I.— midnight
Thursday night Deputy Sheriff Lorrain
removed John Simmons, who shot and
killed David Cook Thursday afternoon,
from jail here and took him to the
Tower mines, where he kept him until
8 o'clock yesterday morning*, when he j
took an ore train for Two Harbors, re
maing there until the passenger train
arrived to take them to Duluth.
This move was necessitated by threats
of lynching heard in the streets and in
saloons. It is said this morning that
two fifty-pound cans of dynamite were
in readiness to blow an the jail, which
is a solid iron structure. Simmons at
his examination refused to plead, and
waived examination. There is thought
to be no doubt but that he will hang for
what is pronounced by all a cold
blooded murder, and but few have any
sympathy for him. He acted very un
concerned until moved from jail here,
when lie seemed to just commence to
realize his position, and broke down.
PLENTY OF GAS.
Albert Lea Expects to Have Cheap
Fuel and Light.
Special to the Globe.
Albert Lea, Minn.. June I.— Th c
Ricelaud gas well, ouly five miles from
the city, continues to send forth a
tremendous force of gas, and the excite
ment over it is considerable. There
seems to be ample pressure to force the
gas through pipes to Albert Lea, and a
company will be formed for that pur
pose. Another well is being drilled on
the same farm, and it is the inten
tion to drill enough to supply a
great tank or reservoir and pipe it from
that to the city. The advantage of the
Ricelaud well over those at Freeborn,
northwest of the city, only is that it is
dry while the latter are constantly im
peded by water. The quantity and
force of the gas at Freeborn is, however,
equal to that of the new one. Work at
Freeborn has been suspended while a
new cable was being obtained and will
be renewed Monday. Superintendent
Borland has secured the assistance of
Page Guthrie who drilled the deep
Will Result From the New Meat
Special to the G.nbe.
Jurat Falls, Mont., June I.— R. S.
Ford, a leading stockman on Montana,
in a recent interview, said that he be
lieved the new Minnesota inspection
law will result in higher prices for meat.
The Chicago and Kansas City packers,
he asserts, manage their business so
well that they send beef to Atlanta, Ga.,
and sell it there for 6 cents per pound,
lie- continues: "The immense influx
of cattle at Chicago gives the dealers
there decided facilities for procuring
cattle on the best terms. They do not,
however, break down the markets en
tirely: for when they have bought all
the cattle they need— at what they deem
a fair price— they stop and will buy no
more during the day, no matter
how many steers may be of
ered. As regards the St. Paul
market. Mr. Ford says there is a strong
disposition among stockmen in Montana
and throughout the Western country to
send cattle to Chicago when they are
shipped, but he considers that the new
law will create greater demand for Mon
tana cattle in St.Paul, whence meat
may be sent'iu refrigerator cars to the
smaller towns in the state. Mr. Ford
thinks the railroads should not advance
the rates for cattle this year. The con
dition of the cattle trade at this time
does not warrant it.

WHISKY FOR ONE.
How an Ingenious Female Se
cured the Booze She Coveted.
There's a story from the old times
when the prohibition idea was not so
strong in the rural districts near here as
it is to-day, says the Pittsburg Dis
patch. . .. ■:
At a certain farm in Moon township
there lived a good man who had the
misfortune to be linked to an intem
perate wife. She would drink, so the
veracious chroniclers of Moon township
inform me, any two men under the ta
ble. At harvest -time in those clays it
was considered indispensable to have a
barrel of good old Monongahela whisky
for the farm help.
It happened one year that when the
harvest came around the old farmer's
wife had been celebrating rather heavi
ly, and yet her desire for ardent spirits '
was unappeased. The question which
agitated the old farmer's mind was how
to keep the barrel of whisky for the
harvesters out of ; her reach. He was
afraid that if she and the whisky were
left alone in the house together there
would not only be no whisky, but also
no dinner for the harvesters.
He took counsel, and the result was
that the barrel of whisky was slung up
to the center beam ot the barn and
lashed firmly in such a place that It
oniy be reached and lowered to the
ground by a man who could climb out
to it. Then he and the help went into
the field with the comfortable assur
ance that the barrel of whisky was be
yond the old lady's reach. ;';-
But she had seen the barrel rolled
out to the barn, and as soon as the men
were away from the house she went to
reconnoiter. She was somewhat irate
when she saw the barrel hung up out of
her reach. It took ten minutes to de
cide on a course of action. Then she
returned to the house and picked out a
clean washtub. With this tub and her
husband's rifle she returned to the barn.
She placed the tub directly under the
barrel, liaising the rifle to her shoulder
she fired at the barrel, sending a ball
clean into the center of the barrel.
Down came a stream of the golden
juice of the rye, playing a tune on the
tub, whicli made the old woman smile
sweetly. ; .
There is no need to go into details.
When the harvesters came in from the
field they found the old woman asleep
beside the tub. Some whisky was left,
but the dinner was not cooked.

A Libel on the Ladies. ,
Have you ever taken particular notice
of the fact that a nicely dressed lady,
especially as to headgear and neckwear,
always seeks a seat in a street car
up in one of the forward cor
ners?. Well, she almost invariably
does. Maybe you will wonder
why, and it is only right and proper
that you should informed on the sub
ject. It is a self-evident truth .that a
, lady loves to look at herself in a mirror,
especially if she is well dressed. It is
an even chance that the front platform
of a street car is occupied by two; or
three smokers who . always lean back
against the front windows. This ob
structs a view of the streets, but the
dark background of the smoker's coat
renders the window mirror-like, so that
a person in the corner seat can see his
or her reflection in the * glass. This is
really why ladies with new hats or
wraps like to get up there. They can
incidentally look at their apparel all the
way down town, and thus be afforded a
great deal of feminine satisfaction.

Fool and Spent Every
If John ii. Sullivan isn't able to whip
any pugilist in the world, I would like
to see the man who is. I went to Bel
fast, N. V., last week, and I was sur
Well, I will tell you.
I have often thought that the spar
ring instinct is inborn in everything,
except women and flowers, of course.
1 have seen funny little spring roosters,
without one feather sprout to crow
about, fight like real men; and then the
boys! Isn't it funny how proud they
are of their muscle, and how quiet the
boy is who hasn't any? Almost as soon
as a boy learns to walk he "learns to
jump into position of defense and
double up his fists.'
But about Sullivan. I thought that I
would never find him nor Belfast. I
asked everybody who 1 thought might
know where Belfast was. No one knew.
Even the conductors, after confessing
they had heard of such a place, said
they could not tell me how to get there.
You see 1 knew how to start, but I did
not know how, when or where to stop.
At Slast the conductor found a man
who told him how to reach the place.
"Are you going to see Sullivan?" he
"1 am," I replied.
"I live eight miles from Belfast," he
continued." and everybody 1 meet on.
the road— l have been traveling for two
days— asks but one question: 'Have
you seen Sullivan?' "
We reached Belfast about 7:30 o'clock
in the morning, and were the only pass
engers for that place. Mr. William
Muldoon's house, where Mr. Sullivan is
training, is in the prettiest part of the
town, and only a short distance from
the hotel. Fearing that Mr. Sullivan
would go out for a walk and that I
would miss him, 1 went to the
One would never imagine from the
surroundings that a prize fighter was
being trained there. . The house is.a :
very pretty two-story building, sur
rounded by the smoothest and greenest
of green lawns, which helps to intensity
the spotless whiteness of the cottage.
A wide veranda surrounds three sides
of the cottage, and the easy chairs and
hammocks give it a most enticing look.
Large maple trees shade the house from
the glare of the sun.
I rang the bell, and when a colored
man answered I sent my letter of intro
duction to Mr. Muldoon. A handsome
young man, whose broad shoulders were
neatly fitted with a gray corduroy coat,
came into the room, holding a light gray
cap in his hand. His face was youth
ful, his eyes blue, his expression pleas
ing, his smile brought two dimples to
punctuate Ins rosy cheeks, his bearing
was easy and most graceful, and this
was the champion wrestler and athlete,
William Muldoon. J -_BS_P
"We have just returned from our two
mile walk," he said, when I told him I
had come to see Mr. Sullivan, "and Mr.
Sullivan is just being rubbed down. If
you will excuse me one moment I will
The room was au artistic one. There
was nothing to suggest pugilist. The
floor was covered with a bright carpet,
and the daintily tinted walls were hung
with handsome pictures. The chairs,
large and easy; the open, upright pi
ano strewed with late music; a small
rosewood secretary, filled with dainty
knick-knacks, and graced with a vase
of hothouse roses, and the fine lace cur
tains were all suggestive of comfort and
happiness and refinement. Heavy por
tieres, chained back, gave a glimpse of
the handsome dining room in the rear
and of a colored man busily setting the
table for broakfast. It was all very
pretty and refreshing, and I began to
wonder. Well, you see, 1 had never
met a pugilist before, and, like most
people, I thought they were only found
in quarters more suggestive of a rough
and tumble life.
" In a few moments Mr. Muldoon re
turned, followed by a man whom I
would never have taken for the
GREAT AND ONLY SULLIVAN.
He was a tall man with enormous
shoulders, and wore dark trousers, a
light cheviot coat, vest and slippers. In
his hand he held
a light cloth
cap. He paused

"Mr. Sullivan, I would like to shake
hands with you," I said, and he took my
hand with a firm, hearty grasp and with
a hand that felt small and soft. Mr.
Muldoon excused himself, and I was
left to interview the great John L.
"I came here to learn al! abont you,
Mr. Sullivan, so will you please begin
by telling at what time you get up in
"Well, I get up about 6 o'clock and
am rubbed down," be began. "Then
Muldoon and I walk and run a mile or
a mile and a half away and then back.
Just as soon as we get in I am given a
shower hath, and after being thoroughly
rubbed down again I put on an entire
fftsh outfit." y y ■•■■..■■"
"What kind of clothing do you wear
for your walk, heavy?" 1 asked. .
"Yes; I wear a heavy ; sweater and a
suit of heavy corduroy, buttoned tightly.
1 also wear gloves. After my walk I
put on a fresh sweater, so ' that 1 won't
take cold." y
"What's a sweater?"
"I'll show you,'.' he said, with a smile,
and. excusing himself, he went out. y ln
a moment he returned with a garment
in his hands. It was a heavy knit gar
ment, with long sleeves and a standing
collar.' It was all iii one "piece, and 1
imagined weighed several pounds. •->,'-.■.
"Well, what do you wear a ' sweater
for, and why do you take such violent

satisfied as to the strange "sweater." ;

Saturday 1 lost «}_• pounds. When 1

"Do you take a cold water when
your walk is finished?" ;'
"No, never. I don't believe in cold
water. It chills the . blood. I always

"How are you rubbed down, then, as
you term it?" . ', , ;
"1 have two men give me a brisk rub
bing with their hands. Then they rub
me down with a mixture of amonia,
camphor and alcohol."
"What do you eat?"
"I eat nothing fattening. I have oat
meal for breakfast, and bread and meat
for dinner, and stale bread for supper.
1 eat no sweets, no potatoes. I used :to
smoke all the day, and since I came
here I haven't seen a cigar, .Occas
ionally, Mr. Muldoon gives me a glass
of ale, but it does not average one a
day." V .
"Then training is not very pleasant
work?" '•■; - , ■ . ■■'-;.
"It's the worst thing going. A fellow
would rather fight twelve dozen times
than train once, buti t'sgot to be done,"
and he leaned back in the chair with an
air of weariness. , „ „ ,
"After breakfast I rest awhile," he
continued, "and then putting on our
heaviest clothes again we start out at
10:30 for our twelve-mile run and walk,
which we do in two hours. We gener
ally go across the field to Mr. Muldoon's
farm, because it is all up-hill work, and
makes us warm. When we get back 1

sun is out. but after dark it's the drear
iest place I ever struck. I wouldn't live
here if they gave me the whole country.
Our neighbors are all right, though,"
Mr. Sullivan continued, as a boyish
smile lit up his face. "They don't
"That is nice," I said.
"They can't," he went on, the smile
broadening. "They fill the graveyard,
on the two sides of us."
The "Champion Rest." the name by
which Mr. Muldoon's house is known,,
is surrounded by two graveyards, a
church, the priest's home and a little
cottage occupied by two old maids.
'•I couldn't sleep after 5 o'clock this
morning on account of Mr. Muldoon's
cow. It kept up a hymn all the morn
ing, and the birds joined in the chorus.
It's no use to try to sleep here after
daybreak. The noise would knocK out
anything." j: . ••,," y. ,
Mr. Muldoon brought in Mrs. Mul
doon, a tall handsome woman, who.
after giving me a pleasant welcome,
went out to feed the birds. The Mexi
can parrot had been saying that "Polly
wants a cracker" for quite a while, and
when she saw her mistress she
screamed, knowing that the cracker
would be forthcoming.
"Do you like prize fighting?" I asked
Mr. Sullivan, after he "had laid his com
plaint about the "singing cow" before
Mrs. Muldoon. . -
"I don't." he replied. "Of course I
did once, or rather I was fond of travel-)
ing about and the excitement, but this is i
my last fight." *
"Well, I am tired, and I want to settle;
down. I am getting old," and he leaned;
"What is your age?"
"I was born the 15th of October, 1855..
I began prize-fighting when 1 was nine
teen years old. How did 1 start? Well, 3
I had a match with a prize man who?
had never been downed, and I was the
winner. This got me lots of notice, so :
I went through the country giving ex-,
hibitions. I have made plenty of money;
in my day, but y .x; >
i HAVE been a fool, .
and to-day have nothing. It. came
easy and went easy. I have provided)
well for my father and mother, and they i
are in comfortable circumstances." ;.
"What will you do if you stop fight
ing?" • "-■•
"If I win this fight I will travel for a
year giving sparring exhibitions, and
then I will settle down. I have always
wanted to run a hotel in New York,
and if lam successful I think I shall
spend the rest of my life as a hotel pro
"How much • money have yon made
during your career as a prize tighter?"
"1 have made $500,000 or $000,000 in
boxing. I made $125,000 from Sept. 26.
1883. to May 26, 1884. when I traveled
through the" country offering 81,000 to
any one I couldn'.** knock out in four
rounds, which takes twelve minutes."
"How do you dress when you go in a
prize ring?" BB>I---E?s__- :
"1 wear knee breeches, stockings and
shoes, and no shirt." - y -
"Why no shirt?"
"Because a man perspires so freely
that if he wears a shirt he is liable to
chill, and a chill is always fatal- in a
prize ring. I took a chill when I fought
Mitchell,' but it did not last long."
"What kind of shoes do you wear?" .
"Regular spiked shoes. They have
three spikes to prevent slipping."
"How will you fight Kilrain, with or
"1 will light Kilrain according to the
London prize ring rules. That's with

every thirty seconds. Under the Mar

They give us three minutes to a round
under the Queensberry, and when the
three minutes are up you have to rest,

Yes, and they were all perfectly at
ease and happy. At one end of the
table sat Mrs. Muldoon? and facing her
was Mr. Muldoon. Next to Mrs. Mul
doon sat my companion, then came my
self, and next Mr. Sullivan. On tlie
opposite side were tiie assistant trail
ers, Mr. Barnitt, a well-bred scholarly,
looking man ; and Mr. deary, a smooth
faced, mischievous man, who doesn't
look much past boyhood. Mr. Sullivan's
' brother, who is anxious . to knock ; out
somebody, sat opposite Mr. Sullivan,
and the wild flowers which graced the
table were gathered by these great
strong men while taking their morning
The conversation never once during
the meal verged on any topic of sport
ing life. They
TALKED ABOUT THE FLOWERS
and that cow, and my trip to Belfast
and what befell me, and although 1 was
anxious to talk about fighters and fight
ing—as that was the object of my visit
yet I hesitated to introduce such a topic
with such surroundings.
, Mr. Sullivan excused himself after he
had eaten his oatmeal, because the sight
of the good things W-iich followed made
his appetite all the keener, and he dared
, The village of Belfast contains about
800 inhabitants, and is almost as quiet
as the two cemeteries where aged per
sons are buried, for Belfast is so won
derfully healthy that no one ever dies
there except from old age.
■About a mile from "Champion Rest,"
his town home, is Muldoon's beautiful
farm of seventy acres, which is well
stocked with fine cattle. In the rear of
"Champion. Rest" are the barn and the
training quarters. On the first floor are
three stalls, fitted out after the latest
improved method, where Mr. Muldoon
keeps his favorite horses. Everything
is as clean and pleasant as in a dwelling
house. In the next room, suspended
from the ceiling, is a Rugby . foot ball
which Mr. Sullivan pounds every day in
a manner which foretells hard times for
Kilrain's head. The big to »t ball with
J _ which they play ball daily is also kept
here. It is enormous and so heavy, that
when Mr. Muldoon dropped it into
i my arms I almost toppled over. Up
..stairs the- floor is covered with -a
white wrestling pad, where the two
champions wrestle every afternoon. In
rone corner is a collection of dumb
bells, from medium weight to the heav
iest, and several sizes of Indian clubs.
-Fastened to one side of the wall is a
chest expander, which also conies into
; Down stairs is Champion Muldoon's
den. Everything about it, as about the
-barn, is of "hard wood finish. There is
-no plaster or paper any where. ' In one
COBXEB OF THE DEN ,' '
is a glass case, where hang a fur-lined
-overcoat and;. several other garments.
Aloii-r the, top of the case is suspended
a 1 gold-headed cane. In the canter of
the room is a writing table, with every
thing for use. Along one side of the
hall is a rattan lounge, at the foot of
: which is spread a yellow fur rug. The
floor is neatly carpeted, and several
rocking chairs prove that the den is for
: "I don't make any money by this,"
said Mr. Muldoon. in speaking about
• turning his home into training quarters,
"but 1 was anxious to see Mr. Sullivan
do justice to : himself in this coming
fight. It was a case of a fallen giant, so
1 thought to get him away from all bad
influences and to get him into good
trim. This is the healthiest place in
: the country, and one of the most difficult
to reach— two desirable things. On the
way here we had a special car, but there
were more people in our car than in

keep our car door locked, and none but
Mr. Sullivan's backers and represent
atives of the press will be admitted.
Mr. Sullivan is the most obedient man I
ever saw. lie hasn't asked for a drink
or a smoke since he came here, and takes
what 1 allow him without a murmur.
It is a pleasure to train him. When we
first arrived, people drove here from all
quarters, and, coming in, would say:
" 'Where's Sullivan?'
"Do you know Mr. Sullivan? I would
"No, they didn't: bnt they wanted to
■see him any way: so I informed them
this was not a hotel nor . a road house,
but mv private house, and Mr. Sullivan
was my guest. I made enemies by it,
but 1 kept them all out. ; Mr. Sullivan
hates idle curiosity as much as I do. We
are at home to Mr. Sullivan's backers
and representatives of the press, but
that is all until after our work is fin
We sat down to a 1 o'clock, dinner in
the same order that we were seated at

a bird trap in the shape of a log cabin,
and they were as •"'."'.'-'

: . "Why?" asked Mr. Muldoon. . '
: "He said he did not like prize-fighters,
so we won't patronize him any more,"
explained Mr. Cleary. 'Jß_ggg__tCTp__«

: "I haven't time to be sorry. I save all

he said. .'"■■'.' , ■;' "„„.

"we will walk up to the railing.and our

had his allowance and fearing he would
be tempted to eat 'more, Mr. Sullivan
went out. . .
•T think everybody would be satisfied
if Mr. Sullivan / could meet 'Mitchell
again," I remarked..
"Yes, but y

were going to eat one another," said
.'■■-. "When ■■ he does , get ' right angry he .
runs over the fields until his good humor
returns," : said Mr. Barnitt, while Mr.
Muldoon said that Mr. Sullivan was as
docile us a lamb. ,
They all spoke in praise of his strong
will power and his childlike obedience. .
■ "You are. the first woman whoever
interviewed me," said Mr. Sullivan in
the afternoon, "and 1 have given you
more than I ever gave any reporter in - .
my life. "They generally manufacture
things and credit them to me, although
Borne are mighty good fellows."
"When reporters act all right we will
Rive them all they want," said Mr. Sulli
■"•■:; "The other day a fresh reporter came
here,* and' he; thought because he was
going to interview prize fighters he
would have to be tough, so he said:
'Where's old Sullivan?' That queered
him. We wouldn't give him a line."
' ''Yes, he came up to me first and
said: "Where's . old Sullivan?" said
Mr. Sullivan, "and I told him in the
barn, and he soon got put out of there
for his toughness."
. At supper time Mr. Cleary had a great
story to tell about his Irish bird trap.
He had caught . one robin, which Mrs.
Muldoon had released, and another had .
left his tail behind him. Then Mr.
Barnitt and Mr. Sullivan's brother told
how they had put feathers in the cage
to cheat the bird trapper.
And the carriage came to take us to
the train, and after 1 bade them all
good-bye, I shook hands with John L.
: Sullivan and wished him success in the
coming fight; and I believe he will have
it, too, don't you? Nellie Bly.
ECHOES FROM THE PEOPLE.
• Cause and Cure of Craziness.
To the Editor of the Globe. j
. The committee which examines into
cases ■of alleged insanity, with the
udge of probate as presiding member,
is, properly - speaking, not a court,
though it is termed so in the newspa
pers in reporting the proceedings of
such a committee. They are led to call
it by the name court by the fact that
such committee . can order a person
placed in custody, and by the fact that
"judges" preside in them. A person
brought before such a committee is de
nied the privileges allowed before
courts, it is entirely misleading to call "
it a court, which name gives everybody
the idea of defense and fair trial. The
members of such committees themselves
look upon their position as that of a
committee consulting about a sick per
son. This is the real nature and the
basis .of the institution. The public
looks at it as a court, which it really
should be. If a person be insane it is
no reason to shut him up. except he is
dangerous to himself or others; then he
ought to be treated like a criminal
shut up. Ido not believe in the law
of revenge. The word "insane" is not
used correctly when applied to crazy
people. Insane means sick. Crazy
peple are not always sick—
brain is not always hurt. If the
latter be the case, they are fit subjects
for the doctors to try their skill on, and
they are not very dangerous. Craziness
is due to an overwrought imagination,
which makes the patient move in a
world of troubles different from the
real. Psychologists consider the evil as
something that grows on certain persons
at a certain age of their life or that
.springs up in an attempt to transcend
ordinary means of obtaining knowledge
or of getting out of difficulty. The ab
normal mentality is considered to be
due to either "inborn ken" (aute-antal
memory) or to transferred ideas relating
to the trouble of others, which ideas en
tirely engross the seat of consciousness,
leaving the. brain inactive and even
healthy, except the patient strains him
self in regaining his practical thoughts.
The cure is in accordance with these
ideas. There is no other remedy known
other than traveling, or rather visiting,
when the irrelevant thoughts are trans
ferred to others that can make applica
tion of them. It is said that a princess
in Germany has , been prevented from
becoming deranged by constantly trav
eling and visiting for several years. A
person shut up loses the chance of be
ing cured. ,^__||S__S9_SSS N. K.
OUR POOR OLD NAVY.
The Hehr.i-ir Affair Again Calls
Attention to It.
To the Editor of the Globe.
In view of the report than an English
squadron has been sent to cruise in the
Behring sea and that our government
has dispatched some vessels to protect
American rights, it may be interesting
to compare the character of the war
ships mentioned in the (telegrams.
American— Adams, wooden sloop of
war. 1,375 tons, 11.3 knots; 1 eleven
inch smoothbore gun (136-ponnder); 4
nine-inch smoothbore guns (3*B.s pound
ers), and 1 GO-pounder. Tne Iroquois,
mentioned in our dispatch, is not in
commission, but the vessel most proba
bly meant is the Thetis," a vessel of
more service as an Arctic cruiser than
as a man-of-war. - The penetrative
force in iron of the guns carried by the
Adams is set down, as nil. and the
weight of shot she could throw at a
broadside is 343 pounds. . ':_ :.-:■;.'
British— Swiftsure, 8-inch armor, 6,640
tons. 15?<t knots, 12-ton guns.. Amphion,
unarmored cruiser with underwater
steel deck \% inches thick, 3,750 tons,
M} 4 knots, 0-inch rifles. Another ves
sel is spoken of, but as one dispatch
says it is the Icarus and . another the
Defender, there seems some doubt on
the question. The Icarus is, 1 believe,
one of the latest swift cruisers in the
British navy. It might be wise to fin
ish the Chicago as soon as possible.

.A Pointer for the Police.
To the Editor of the Globe:
Some attention ought to be drawn to
the idiotic manner in which the city,
after paying out a : handsome sum for
first-class concerts, allows them to be
rendered almost worthless by neglecting
to take any precautions to preserve de
cent order and quiet during the per
formances. At the concert last evening
at Summit. park, Mr. Seibert -had on
several occasions to .request a number
of children to be quiet; but, owing to
the jitter absence .of the police, his
words produced no effct beyond a few
moments' lull in the racket. , I am only
a poor clerk, and, perhaps, ought to
know enough to say nothing and suffer;
but, to my way of thinking, such scenes
as that of last evening are , as much a
disgrace as they certainly are an annoy
ance, and it becomes any one to try and
have them stopped. To allow then to
continue is nothing she rt of public in
sult to the musicians, aud a most decided
reflection upon the ability and good
taste of the management. A word to
the wise should be sufficient. C. D. W.
