New York. Sept. 21. Even if the

New Yorkers need have no fear of
their homes in case of an attack by
warships of a hostile country, accord
ing to Major General Frederick D.
Giant, commanding the department of
the east. While General Grant declines
to make any comparisons between the
work of the navy and army gunners in
the forts, he did say this:
"I am convinced that the gunners in
the forts in my department can shoot
so well that they can put warships .out
of action lully as fast as tiiey can come

Considerable discussion has been en

New York. Sept. 21. The news ca
bled from England that unmarried wo
men by hundreds have sailed for Amer
ican and Canadian ports is variously
commented npem by steamship men
here. Officials of the White Star line
whose steamer, the Baltic, is reported
to have a thousand such women aboard,
are inclined to think that this feminine
contingent is not abnormllly large for
this time of tlie year. It is simply that
servant girls and maids are returning
to this country. It is also suggested
that the Dublin exposition drew a large
number of young women back to Ire
land, when; they took the opportunity
to visit their old homes, ami that they
are now on their wav back, let an
other reason givui here for the exodus
is the swift development of the Can
adian northwest. Itritish emigrants u
is said have gotten their newly acquir
ed farms into shape and have sent word
ti their sweethearts to join them.
