Old Mission, July 14 Special corre
spondence. St. Alban's echool for boys
at Kooxvilie, Illinois, recently opened by
Doctor Leffingwell, is here for a summer
camp under the charge of the master.
Tbe camp is beautifully located in a
pine grove, convenient to the water, with
open ground for ball playing and other
games. They have tour tents pitched,
and others go upas tbe boys arrive. I
wish your boy readers could see the
camp and admire the discipline which
prevails, and the iollity of the boys
the grey and red. Squrrels seem to be
having a hard time of it under tbe keen
sight of these boys with their sure aim.
A bail seldom goes outside the little scrap
of paper they nail to a tree for target
practice. Next week tbe commandant is
to take them all across tbe bay for a three
days' camp on the border ot a bass and
perch inland lake, with trout streams in
vicinity. Your correspondent goes with
them as guest. Yesterday Dr. Leffing
well took them all out, in the Argo tor
six hours' tail with lunch on board, and
under a stiff wind tbe boys were delighted
to tee tbe water come into the iee scupper.
I send you copies of two of the five
"orders" which I saw tacked on the
bulletin board of the camp this morning:

The Argo is Sailed undor thy rules and

the owner is on board. The moment his
gig ia shoved off from the boat his fltg is

for the owner and his gueata, and the
"dingye" which is the common boat.
The cutter hangs on the davits on the star
board side, and the dingye on the port side.
The starboard side answers to one's front
door, for coming and going of the owner
and his guests. The port side is tbe
back door and on that side comes in the
coal, wood and other stores of the ship,
as well as tbe crew. The launching of
the gig. for tbe owner's use, is quite a
formal and solemn affair. Everything is
done in the most quiet way, and when
ready, after formal announcement, tte
owner steps from tbe cockpit, where he
has been waiting, over the side, and down
the ''golden stairs" into the stern of the
gig. where the Amercan colors are al
ready firing, the ship's colors are set in
the bow, and the crew "pull for the
shore." The time is divided into watches
of four hours each and carefully noted
by striking the bells for instance at 12
o'clock eight bells; 12:30 one bell; 1
o'clock two bells; l:3i) three bells; 2

WAt-HiKGTOS, July 13. The officials of
the ti-easury department are having a
good 1 tugh over the case of George Clark,
the eo.lector of customs at El Paso, Tex.,
who is charged by some of the citizens of
that town with immorality gambling,
drunkenness and other vices unbecoming
a federal officer. Clark's administration
has been admirable and Secretary Foster
would have been glad to retain him had
not Clark, in defending himself, confessed
his sirs. "It is true I do play poker," says
the accused official in his letter to the sec
retary of the treasury, "but as I never
play riore than a dollar limit I can't be
accust-d of gambling."
Gets "Full" and rays Blackmail.
"I d get pretty full one in a while, but
I can always take care of myself. I admit
that I did pay blackmail to a woman who
annojed me, but after I got tired ot being
annojed I kicked her out of my efiice.
Sureh.- this is no crime." Even this might
have lieen forgtveu had not Clark addad:
"As to my passing cigars for people, the
man vhe accused me of that ought to be
tbe last one in the world to apeak on this
quest on, for 1 have passed several srnits of

too frank for his own profit aad t tie pro
babilities are he will have to go.
FULLER NOT IN THE RACE.
The Chief Jastiee Has a Good Enongh
sniNGTOX, July IS. The alleged Ful
ler presidential boom has furnfslu'd mate
rial for considerable gossip in the last few
days. The best informed politicians dis
credii the story, and seem to share the
views expressed by the Washington Pot
in an editorial: "Before his elevation to
the b-?nch Mr. Fuller was not a politician
of such artivitv or prominence as misrht
have sufrneted his selection to be the!

the methods auJ acts which usually gov

A Society Consideration.
A friend of the Fullers gave still an
other good reason for disbelieving the
presidential aspirations accredited to the
chief justice, "Were there no other rea
son for declining the nomination, the
chief justice would consider, the wishes of
his family," said this friend. "The Full
ers oxmpy a position in society secoud
only to the president's family, and more
enduring because it is good for a lifetime.
I don't know bnt what it carries with it
more, grave dignity than the White
House, and I don't think Mra Fuller or
her charming daughters would care to
surrender their present position to start
upoi- the uncertain journey for what at
best, would lie only a temporary abode in
the White House. The chief justice is
weaitby. His office is congenial and the
family's social position is all that they desire."
