.Record of the Day Anions the
The Struggle to Head the Republican State
Ticket— A Last Appeal Made— Euckley
to Sit in Judgment.
Ex-Senator Phil Crimmins, It is claimed,
is actively at work for Waterman, and has
entered into a contract to deliver to the
Governor the votes of such delegates from
ban Francisco to the State Convention as
be may be able to control.
Whether this is absolutely true or not it
is difficult to determine positively, but there
can be no doubt that Crimmins is very
close to Secretary Boruck and his Gover
nor politically, but the stronger probability
is that he secretly favors Morrow. The
latter, no doubt, is the first choice of tho
Federal office-holders, who arc indebted to
him lor many favors done, ami Crimmins
is wily enough to be in oa the right side.
In spite of this, however, the Morrow
boom has undoubtedly lost strength of late,
and everything indicates that Markham
would be the choice of the convention on
the first ballot were the vote to be taken
now. The opposition of certain papers
seem to have strengthened him materially,
but the next month, of course, may serve to'
alter the entire complexion of affairs.
A number of the shrewdest of the politi
cal prophets predict that the Republican
nominee will be a dark horse, and in that
event General X. P. Chipman of Bed Bluff
is regarded as the coming man. He is
wealthy and popular in the northern
counties. As a politician he has had wide
experience, and is a mau of unquestioned
shrewdness. From Washington, 1). C, he
came to California about sixteen years ago,
and in the former place he was a Supervisor
during the reign of "Boss" Shepherd. In
justice to him, however, it is said that his
record was an excellent one.
Little is heard of any candidates but the
three named, and the general conviction
seems to be that the fight will be among
them after the first preliminary skirmish.
FINAL WARNING GIVEN.
The Republican i j.i utive Committee'!
■ l..st Appeal.
At a meeting of the Republican Executive
Committee last night it was decided to
make a final demand upon the County Com
mittee, and with that end in view the fol
lowing letter was prepared:

a different state of affairs, unless members of

the party cannot be successful. In order to

If such course be followed as will lend to deny

Dr. Harris Seeking an Oflice.
Dr. Harris, the high-kicker of the liepub
liean County Committee, is making strenu
ous efforts to secure the appointment to the
office of Inspector of Drugs, recently de
clined by Dr. B. C. Myers. He was an ap

ence nt his command, and hopes to land the
prize this time.

A Woman Who Hunts Tigers.
The pursuit of "the grand sport" in India
/las brought to the front a lady tiger-killer
of great skill and prowess in the person of
Mrs. Evans Gordon. This fearless lady, as
. a member of the recent Couch Bebar bunt
ing expedition, shot an angry tigress who
was rushing viciously upon the party, and
actually within a few yards of her ele
phant's trunk. Her shot, we are told, was
as well timed as it was well aimed, for
the other guns engaged, including that of
the lady sportman's husband, Major Evans
Gordon, had failed to stop the furious
brute. It is added that this brilliant
achievement adds one more to the many
trophies already won by this dauntless lady
in the hunting grounds of Cooch Behar.—
Desertion of Four Molders— lnstallation
The non-union molders nearly all re
turned to work yesterday unharmed by
their mild dissipations on the 4th and sth
of July. The Kisdon managers announce
that all their men are now living outside of
the foundries and that they are satisfied
with their situations. The union men claim
that four men yesterday left the Union aud
City Iron Works, and that two of them were
the best workmen employed at these
foundries. The molders continue to
feel confident of victory, and say
that one of tlie men who deserted
was offered SS a day to remain and finish
an intricate piece of work on which he was
engaged, but the union gave him greater in
ducements to leave. They look for deser
tions this week, but the founders laugh at
this assertion, and still say that they have
plenty of help.
nil Shoe Clerks.
A very enthusiastic meeting was held at
B'nai B'rith Hall last evening by the He
tail Shoe Clerks Association. A vote of
thanks was extended to the ten dealers
who kindly gave their clerks an entire holi
day on the Fourth, it being the first case of
the kind in the history of the business.
The delegates from the Federated Trades
reported a very favorable canvass, live of
the eight houses interviewed having ex
pressed a perfect willingness to close on
unto set, July 7th, while the other three
asked for an extension of time to July 21st,
which was granted. A committee from the
Dry-goods' Men's Association addressed
the meeting, and stated that the associa
tion is on the eve of another victory, as all
the stores save one had signed to close on

THE OTHER SIDE.
A Statement M .oe by the Children of
Kudolplt I- a! 1 in, .
In last Saturday's issue of this paper was
published under the head of "Alameda
Notes" one version of a case of domestic
misery as related by a Mrs. Fallmer to an
attorney on a local train. In a communica
tion received yesterday,' signed Rudolph
Fallmer Jr. and Louise Fallmer, they say
relative to the mother's version:
"We, the older children of said family,
hereby testily that there is very little truth
in the matter. Our mother is supplied in
plenty with the necessaries of life, has, in
fact, been able to buy three lots and a
bouse, besides having the family well pro
vided for by our father. Our father's char
acter and bearing are without blemish,"

ters were missed, and Laterrade having

International Hotel. Police Officer Murray
found him endeavoring to read the letters,
which were not in his native language.
Doubts of his sanity are entertained. He
said he was weary of Alameda and wauled
to see the city.

Portrait of tin* Champion by
Still Another likeness by an Eastern Jour
nal—The California Club's Challenge
to the Police.
Outside of inquiries on political subjects,
how they liked the Fast and what the ther
mometer registered there, the question
most frequently asked of the Buckley tour
ists since their return was, "How about
John I..?" /..
At the Manhattan headquarters, the Cali
fornia Athletic Club, on the street, in the
saloons, this subject was immediately
broached when any of the returned wan
d.rers weie met by their friends. Taking
the replies all together, the concensus ol
opinion about Sullivan is as follows, as
voiced by one of the tourists who knows
perfectly well what he is talking about
when he speaks of pugilistic matters:
"John L. Sullivan is unquestionably not
the man he was, say even a year ago. Not
by a great deal. He has aged most notic
ably. His hair is as gray as a badger, He
is very much bloated, and looks as big as a
barrel. Ever since his fight with Kiliaiu
lie has been continuously under the influ
ence of liquor and has not, during all that
time, beeu in a condition to rationally dis
cuss any business proposition. Hardly
anybody East thinks that Sullivan will
ever go in the ring again, though those in
terested in handling him as an exhibition
attraction continue to boom him up as able
and willing to meet any man. Sullivan
could not be induced, it is believed East,
to train again. In fact, his condition is
such that to shut off his supply of liquor
might cause his immediate physical break
down, and unprejudiced judges say it will
be now impossible for him to stop drinking.
ONLT A MATTEK OF TIME.
"Of course it is only a matter of time
when his steady drinking will result as
such a course inevitably does, .Still it must
be remembered that Sullivan's constitution
was a eastiron one, and that he had the
most wonderful recuperative powers. From
a financial point of view Sullivan can make
much more money by giving exhibitions
than by going into the ring again. He un
derstands tins perfectly. lie is the cham
pion and if challenged some way or another
will be iouud to avoid a meeting. What
good would Sullivan be to any one if he
met Jackson or any of the others in a fight
and was defeated? None at all. His name
would be Dennis. He will never meet
Jackson; and even if the clubs here aro
allowed to resume their exhibitions Sulli
van will never appear in any of them iv a
"Dick 1-oche, the well-known sporting
man of St. Louis, is making arrangements
to run an athletic club at Ilobokeii, N. J.
He has engaged Jerre Dunn, who shot and
killed Elliott, the pugilist, in Chicago, sev
eral years ago, to act as referee. Eocbe
has plenty of money, and can get all the
financial backing he asks for. His idea is
that pugilism in California is dead and gone
for good, and that no more club fights will
ever be held here. He thinks there is big
money to be made in running an athletic
club, and proposes to fashion his new ven
ture precisely on the California Athletic
Club lines. It looks as if he would succeed,
as he is very popular in sporting circles,
and has the reputation of being perfectly
fair and square."
The tourists and the New York reporters
do "not see Jobn L. from the same coup
d'ceil, as it were, or catch him at the same
occupation. The tourists saw him drink
ing whisky, and the reporters see him eat
ing beefsteaks. Besides this John L.'s lan
guage, if correctly reported, is quite classic,
though this perhaps may be due to the
champion's connection with the theater as
a leading star. As, however, it is always
well to hear both sides of a story, it will be
interesting to compare the following, taken
from the New York Sun of July Ist, with
the tourist versiou:
John L. Sullivan Is of the opinion that prize
fighting has seen its day lv tin- cnuniiy, for a
lime, it not for good. The champion gave ex
pression to the above statement last uight wblla
polishing off tbe lemaius of a juicy steak, which
COU4I tinted his supper. He said: "I think the
fatal light nl the Golden Gate Athletic Club of
Sail Francisco Is laigely responsible for me reac
tion against prize-fights. Nearly every State iv
the Union has -oineihiug to say on the subject
now, and even tbe ministers have commenced to
pi each against It. lv view of the it-cent devel
opments 1 thick I am sale in saying
thai It would be next In impossible to success
lully bi Ing' a Oil- pitze-'ight for some time to
come. Uf one thlugyou may rest assured, young
fellow, and that is I shall not fight aeatu unless 1
am guarauted that there mil be no interference
Willi the law. 1 don't mean to risk a repetition
of my recent legal trouble, and would not go
through the same experience again for any con
sideration. I would line to meet Jacksoo, and
have paid tbat I would do so. .lacks, However,
refuses to tight except at the California Athletic
Club. It would be impossible to hung the battle
off in Calfornla without gelling into trouble,
and Jackson's i_Tiit.nl to fight auywnsre else
makes our meeting extremely doubtful.
IN GOOD HEALTH.
"I was delighted with my trip South, and have
nothing but words of praise fair the manner la
which 1 was received by all. 1 regret that Mul
doou had so much to say that was derogatory to
me. He proved iitnmell to be a treacherous liar,
to say the least. 1 paid him f_<>"" for assisting
to train me, and lie lies when he says that be
built me up from a physical wreck to my old
louu. Tbe fact that 1 walked twenty miles
the linn! (lay of my lialnlog lo reduce
flesh should be siitllclcut proof that Mul
doon's story of luy being other than In
good Health "at ibe time was not true. Muldoou
has advertised himself and kept himself before
the public at my expense loug enough. Hitherto
1 have not deigned to notice him, but 1 feel as If
the lime had come for me to refute his calumni
ous reports. He wrote and volunteered to turn
State's evidence against me to escape the con
sequence of his own connection with the case.
Tins ira . a fitting climax to his foimer treacher
ous behavior. 1 saved him the limine of giving
evldeuce, however, by pleading guilty.
"As regards my luture movements. I am going
to lioslou to-monow lo see my lather. When 1
return 1 shall lake my positiou with Duncan IS.
Harrison's company. In which I shall play a
part. Igo on the load In August wllh the com
pany and shall remain with It during the entire
season. .lack ..arnltl will manage the company
aud we expect to make money." .
Sullivan is looking Ihe picture of health, and
burst out laughing when asked If be bad re
mained iv seclusion for fear of Kilrair.
"Young fellow," be said, "1 never yet saw the
man that I would hide from, and expect It will
be a good many years befoie 1 do."
A CHALLENGE TO THE POLICE.
The California Club Directors held an
other lengthy executive session last night.
At the conclusion of their labors Secretary
Vernon handed the reporters the following
synopsis of a portion of the business
An athletic exhibition, consisting ot boxing,
wrestling, club-swinging, etc., will be given by
tbe California Athletic Club on Wednesday
evening, July 0, lßi.o, commencing at _ o'clock.
Notwithstanding all lepiesenialious to the
contrary, there will be no attempt made to
make a test case of this exhibition.
1 here will be boxing between Joe Choyuskl
and It. Fltzslmmous, Jimmy Carroll and .Mai tin
Murpby, Eddie Ureauey and Mick McCarthy
and others. There will also ba an amateur
wrestling-match between White of the Call
fornia Club and Schwartz ot the Limine.
When the Gibbous brothers were up to
give a boxing exhibition at the Occidental
Club recently I'olice Captain Douglass
stopped the show and notllied them that if
they entered the ring he would arrest them
and also all those connected with the club.
It now remains to be seen what he will do
when the first pair of boxers enter the Cal
ifornia Club arena to-morrow night. The
Directors refused last night to discuss the
Whether or not It results in Schwartz's
dismissal from the Amateur Association if
he wrestles White, who is claimed to be a
professional, makes no difference _to
Schwartz, as he has determined to meet
White without reference to any action that
may be taken hereafter by the amateurs.
■WANTS ANOTHER MATCH.
Oscar Connors, who defeated B. Sidon
last Sunday in a wrestling match, was at
the California Club last uight to make a
match with John I*. Casey, one of the Cali
fornia's amateurs. Casey was not preseut
and the matter was deferred until to-night.
To-night James Connors of the Buffalo
Athletic Club and Ike Weir, the "Belfast
Spider," will meet for a 51750 purse before
the Erie County Athletic Club In Buffalo.

in putting the IG-pound shot. He bent the
previous record of 45 feet by one inch.
Jim Corbett and par.. v returned on Sun
day evening from celebrating the Fourth nt
Willows, and are loud iv their praises of
the hospitality shown them, and the good
time tliey had.
Leader John nnmniersmith of the Olym
pic Club leaves next week on a long vaca
tion. Eddie Kolb takes Hammersmith's
place. When Hammersmith retires next
September Kolb may possibly be selected to
fill the position.
The liegatta Committee of the Fourth of
July General Committee met lust night lo
consider the appeals of the Leahy and am
ateur crews of tlie Pioneer Club from the
referee's decision in. the races rowed by
them against crews respectively from the
South End iiud Ariel clubs and awarded to
these two latter clubs. The appealing club
claimed that fouls were made which the
referee refused to consider. The committee
decided to uphold the referee's decision iv
both cases. _____
The San Jose True-. -
Major T. 11. Griffin, the welljknownhor..
man, was up from San Jose yesterday on a
brief visit to the city. He reports the San
Jose track in excellent condition, and all
the horses in training there as doing first
class work. Those stables that are going to
Los Angeles will leave San Jose about the
28th. ■ .
An Inquest to Be Held A Cor
Drs. Plummer, Lane, Gibbous and three
others held an autopsy on the body of the
late Captain George H. Douglass yesterday,
and found that death had resulted from
concussion of the brain. Dr. Plummer
signed a death certificate to this effect, bnt
Health Officer Eeeney refused to accept it,
whereat a very stormy scene is said to have
ensiled. The Health Officer refused to issue
a burial permit until the case had been in
vestigated by the Coroner. He was finally
induced to Issue one pending the inquest.
Coroner Eaton at once swore in a jury
when he heard of the case, and will hold
the inquest to-day.
It is said that the relations of Captain
Douglass intend to sue the Sutter-street
Bailroad Company, as they hold that com
pauy responsible for the accident which
caused the injuries that bad such a fatal
result. The horses which ran into Captain
Douglass' buggy are said to have run away
three times since that event, aud to have
been sold by the company.

en route for Santa Kosa. One of the pris
oners is John Metcalf, a traveling photog
rapher, and his companion Lorntta ltubiu
son, a fifteen-year-old girl of Healdsburg.
The man is wanted on the charge of abduc
tion, and the girl on the charge of vagrancy.
About a month ago Metcalf traveled
through Sonoma County and met the Bubin
son girl, who was living in Healdsburg with
her widowed mother. After he left the
town she followed him, and they came
to this city, where they spent several days.
Tbe girl next sent her mother a letter, say
ing that she had married a man named
Jones and was on the point of leaving for
The mother sent some officers after the
wayward girl, but she could not be found.
Alter some search she and her paramour
were located In Ventura County. Two
officers were sent after them there and they
were discovered in the town of Ventura,
living in a low-class Italian lodging-house.
The prisoners refuse to say anything about
their case, and the girl when questioned
proved to be an arrant spitfire, with as
complete a command of the language of low
resorts as can he found in more populated
centers than Healdsburg.
l'l.ing for Fony Slips Adopted l.lllai
At the meeting of tie Harbor Commis
sioners yesterday, the bill of J. S. Antouelle
for $1202 74 for the construction of sec

Accused by His Creditors.
11. P. Iloran assigned his furniture-busi
ness about eight months ago for the benefit
of his creditors, and the assets, which con
sisted mostly of accounts, were somewhat
greater than the liabilities. The assignee
appointed Horan as collector of those ac
counts, and he collected money from time
to time, turning over a certain proportion
and keeping some as pay for his work. The
creditors probably thought that he was
keeping more than his share, for yesterday
a complaint was sworn out for his arrest on
a charge of embezzlement and ne was taken
to the Southern StatioD, where ho gave
The Police Commissioners.
At a meeting of the Board of Police Com
missioners last night, the charge of being
off his beat preferred against Officer Hart
ley of Captain Douglass' division was dis
missed. When the Commissioners were
asked if they had anything to say about
their reported reappointment by Governor
Waterman, and whether tliey would accept
the reappointment, they replied that they
had received no official notice of the Gov
ernor's action in the matter, and therefore
had nothing to say.
No Quorum Present.
A joint meeting of the Classification Com
mittee and the Committee on Utiles and
liegulations of the Board of Education was

pose of hearing the teports of the School In

HIS HONOR SURPRISED.
Few Hie aud None Resign Proved to lie n
l ,Is.. Se.ying.
Ex-Judge Leicester Holme, Mayor Grant's
private secretary and chief clerk, opened a
letter yesterday morning, and as lie read
the contents he nearly fainted, says the
New York World. Several clerks rushed
lor a glass of water, and Mayor Grant
bobbed his head above his desk and yelled:
"What's the matter."'
"Take it away— take it away!" gasped
the ex-Judge, recovering from his fuiuting
spell and pointing to the letter.
"Is there dynamite in it?" queried young
"Worse," replied the ex-Judge, mopping
his brow; "the most surprising epistle I
ever handled. Why. Mr. Mayor, a city
official has resigned.
"What, what, what?" came from his
Honor, as his head once more bobbed up.
"Yes, sir," continued the ex-Judge, re
gaining bis composure, "one of us has asked
to be relieved of bis official duties."
"The name of the man, his office, quick,
quick I" exclaimed the Mayor, "ere 1 doubt
the truth of your statement."
"1 will read this most remarkable docu
ment," said the ex-Judge, and he began:
"Hon. Hugh J. Grant, Mayor— l hereby re
sign my position as Poundmaster- for tbe
Kingsbridge district. Yours truly, James
"Wero there any charges preferred
against him?" queried the Mayor.
" No, sir," answered the ex-Judge.
" "lis surprising," put in the Mayor.
"Why, 'tis extrordinary! Have that letter
framed and marked 'exhibit.' "
The Poundkeeper of Kingsbridge gets $1

THEY STOPPED THE CLOCK.
i hum nud Cunning Trick Perpetrated
by a Fair of English Sparrows.
The town clock stopped at 4:30 Thursday
morning, and Mr. Williams, on going to
ascertain the cause, found that the hands
had been securely tied by strands of twine
and grass, says the Sarnla Observer. The
mischief bod been done by a pair of English
sparrows, who had selected the angle
formed by the hands as a suitable site for a
nest. The movements of the hands inter
fered with their plans, and the birds evi
dently put their wits to work to devise a
a remedy that would secure the stability of
the vest. Their first scheme was to wind tho
shaft on which the hands are pivoted round
and round with grass and cords. That fail
ing, they tied the hands to each other and
to the frame work in such a manner that it
took considerable time and a great deal of
labor on Mr. Williams' part to remove the
obstructions. The engineering skill dis
played by the birds in accomplishing: their
object showed that they possessed reason
ing powers ot no mean order, besides an
amount of industry and perseverence in
gathering the necessary material within
the few hours al their disposal that is al

UNCLE SAM'S ARMY.
The New Law Designed to Prevent
The bill to prevent desertions from the
army has become a law by the President's
signature. It provides that from and after
the Ist Inst, there shall be retained from the
pay of every enlisted man in the army $1
per month for the first year of his enlist
ment, which retained sum shall not be paid
him until his discharge from the service and
shall be forfeited unless he honestly and
faithfully serves to the date of his dis
charge. The Secretary of War shall deter
mine what misconduct shall constitute a
failure to render such houest and faithful
service; but no soldier, who has deserted
at any time during the term of an enlist
ment, shall be deemed to have served his
term honestly and faithfully. The sums
retained in accordance with the bill aud
Sections 1281 and 1283 K. S. shall be treated
as deposits, upon which interest will be
paid as provided in Sections 1305, 1306, 1307
and 1308 B. S., tbe interest to bear from the
end of the year of the enlistment in which
tney shall have accrued.
Section 2 provides that enlistments shall
continue to be made for five years, as now,
but at the end of three years from the date
of enlistment every soldier whose anteced
ent service has been faithful shall be en
titled to receive a furlough for . three
mouths, and In time of peace his discharge
upon bis own application at the end of such
furlough. Soldiers discharged under this
provision shall uot be entitled to the allow
ances provided in Section 12' JO of the Be
vised Statutes. The next section authorizes
United .States Marshals and their deputies,
Sheriffs and their deputies, Constables aud
police officers of towns and cities to appre
hend, arrest and receive the surrender of
any deserter from the army for the purpose
of delivering him to any person in the mili
tary service authorized to receive him.
Section 4 declares that in time of pence
the President may, in his discretion and
under such rules and upon such conditions
as he shall prescribe, permit any enlisted
man to purchase his discharge from the
army. The purchase money shall be paid
to a paymaster of the army and be de
posited in the Treasury to the credit of one
or more of the current appropriations for
the support of the army, to be indicated by
the Secretary of War, and available lor the
payment of expenses incurred during the
fiscal year in which the discharge is made.
Section 5 provides that the army ration
now provided by law shall be increased by
the addition thereto of one pouna of vege
tables, the proportion to be fixed by the
Secretary of War.
Secretary Proctor has signed an order
detailing Charles de L. lline, first class.
.Military Academy, to attend the encamp
ment of the District National Guard at Fort
Washington, for the purpose of instructing
the guardsmen in guard duties, 'Illis is the
first time such a thing has ever been done.
Cadet lline was in attendance at the camp
lust year while on leave and rendered such
efficient service that General Ordway was
very anxious to secure him again. He
stands first in tactics and discipline.
There are about twenty-seven vacancies
in the army to be filled by appointments from
the recently graduated class of cadets from
the Military Academy, numbering fifty-four,
or twice the vacancies. This is not an un
usual circumstance, as there is often a score
or more of cadets made additional second
lieutenants, who do not receive their full
rank until well into the next year.
Captain James G. McAdams, who was
well known here, having been in command
of Troop X ol the Second Cavalry, while

LIFE IN THE BIG SWAMP.
Weird Oltefeiiol.ee Swamp — s.. v ,_... Sau
rian*— Shooting I .•.!, With Arrows.
The prairie land, which covers a consid
erable portion of the Okefenoke Swamp, is
a very remarkable formation, and is, I am
told, peculiar to this swamp. It is open
land, entirely free from timber, and stretch
ing away as far 83 the eye can reach in
every direction. It has most of the charac
teristics of a huge inland sea, except the
waves. Interspersed here and there in this
huge prairie are small patches of dry
ground, of available size and heavily tim
bered, called cowhouses. I am unable to
ascertain the prorpiety of this name, unless
it be that the cattle, deer and other animals
seek these places for shelter and get out of
the water. The surface of these prairies is
covered with a deposit of decayed vegeta
tion that has been accumulating for cen
turies and Is called muck. This varies in
thickness from four to ten feet, with water
beneath, and beneath the water sand. This
singular formation gives to the swamp its
name of Trembling Earth. it will support
the weight of the average man if he keeps
moving onward; but If he pauses an in
stant he commences to sink, and may go
through to his waist or over his head. At
every step the water oozes up around the
feet, while the muck will tremble and
quiver for yards around.
There is something grand nnd even sub
lime to the visitor in the silent vastness of
this prairie formation. It stretches away
before the eye in every direction until only
limited by the, horizon, its perfect stillness
only broken by the occasional bellow of
some huge alligator, or the far distant
scream of some unknown bird. Here and
there can be seen the track left behind by
some hunter, where possibly years ago he
had laboriously poled his canoe along in
pursuit of game, the path as distinct and
fresh now as if made only yesterday. All
around fish of endless species and sizes can
be seen swimming and darting about, while
not infrequently the eye may fall upon
some immense alligator or snake sunning
himself upon the surface of the muck and
water or slowly sinking out of sight as soon
as lie is discovered. This description con
veys a slight but at best a very imperfect
Idea of the prairie land of this swamp.
Upon the island where we are at present
encamped are living two families, with the
aged father, named Cheshire. The old
gentleman is nearly 80 years of age and has
spent thirty odd years of his life here in
this spot. At the time of the expedition
sent through the swamp by the Constitu
tion he acted as guide and is full of remi
niscences of that trip, lie is a wonderful
fisherman, and, indeed, calls himself the
King of the Swamp, to which position be
says bo was duly appointed and commis
sioned by Dr. Little, the State geologist.
The two sons of Mr. Cheshire have their
families here. The men attempt to culti
vate small crops, but spend most of their
time hunting. Their revenue is almost en
tirely derived from the salo of hides of
alligators, deer nnd bears, The quantity of
these that they destroy and many of their
stories of hunting adventures are almost
Incredible. Think of a hunter shooting
down four deer with a rifle one after
another and without moving from one spot.
Iv several of the lakes that are thickly in
terspersed throughout this prairie the alli
gators are so numerous and fierce that they
will attack a man in a boat as soon as he
appears among them, and shooting tliem by
night, which is the way they are commonly
killed, is sometimes attended with no little
The entire armament of the Cheshire
family consists of one ten-gauge, ten-pound
double-barreled Bemington shotgun and
two Winchester rifles, one thirty-eight cali
ber and one thirty-two. Also a small yel
low pine bow and a few cane arrows. These
latter are used In shooting fish, and I feel
safe in affirming tbat the dexterity with
which these men use their rude bow nnd ar
rows will put to shame the average Atlanta
marksman with his rifle. In passing over
the prairie, one of the Cheshlres will sud
denly stop, poise his little bow aud send
his little arrow into the water, ordinarily
into a spot where you or I would see noth
ing, but the way that arrow will dance
about for the next minute or two will con
vince you not only that there is an object
at the other end of it, but that it is an ob
ject of some size, too. When your hunter
pulls up his arrow behold a four or six
pound trout or black bass, centrally trans
fixed, a shot that very few. of our marks
men could make with a gun. —Atlanta
How to Swell Railroad Profits.
Passenger traffic does not grow on
American railroads like freight, because it
has not been nursed by like reductions.
Here is the Chicago and Northwestern
Railroad, which since 1875 has reduced its
freight rate ''per ton mile" from 2.10 1 cents
to 1.01 cents, or mure than half; but the
passenger rate "per passenger mile" has
only fallen a fourth, from 3.02 cents to _.'__
cents.. What is the result? The freight traf
fic has grown four and a half fold, from 454,
-000,000 ton miles to 1,804,701.090 ton miles;
but the passenger mileage has a little more
than doubled, rising from 116,775.354 pas
senger miles to 270,210,717. .Now with this
increase there is a lot more money in the
increased freight at half the rate with over
four times tbe quantity than in passenger
business at three-quarter rates with twice
The first railroad that dares a real passen
ger reduction like that of freight, which in
the Chicago and Northwestern would have
meant a cent and a half a mile in 1890, will
work a railroad revolution in fares fur pas
sengers and dividends to stockholders. —
ROUGH OS THE BABIES.
Treatment to Which They Are Subjected
by rati.jrnni.in Doctors.
When a child in Patagonia is sick a mes
senger is dispatched for the doctor, and
never leaves him until he comes with him.
As soon as the doctor arrives be looks at
the sick child, and then with much cere
mony rolls it up in a piece of skin. He
then orders a clay plaster, and by this time
the child has ceased crying, soothed by the
warmth of the skin, and so rendering still
more solid his reputation as a wise man.
Yellow clay Is brought and made into a
thick cream with water, and the child is
painted from bead to foot, causing him to
cry again. "The devil is still there," says
the doctor, sagely, and undoes two mysteri
ous packages he carries; one contains rhea
sinews (ostrich) and the other a rattle made
of stones In a gourd decorated with feathers.
He then fingers the sinews, muttering
something for a few minutes, then he seizes
the rattle and shakes it violently, staring
very hard at the crying child. Then wraps
it in the skin again nnd it ceases crying.
Again it is painted, rattled at and stared at,
and again it cries. This is done four times,
and then the cure is considered complete.
The doctor leaves the child quiet, enfolded
in the warm skin, and goes his way, having
received two pipesful of tobacco as a fee.
Strange to say, the child generally recov
ers, but if it does not the doctor gets out of
the difficulty by declaring that the parents
did not keep the medicine skin lightly
around the child and so let tbe devil get
back again. This is the only treatment sick
children in Patagonia are ever known to
