Tlnkis and Christy Ann Morrison, supposed to be the only survivors of the wreck of the steamer Asia, have arrived here. Tinkle re ports that be boarded the Asia near Owen Sound, with J. H. Tlnkis and H. B. Gallagher of Manltou. The steamer was crowded. All the staterooms were full and many passengers lying on sofas and the cablu floor. About 11 o'clock Thursday morning a storm struck the vessel. My uncle, J. H. Tlnkis, Jumped p and said the boat was doomed. Dishes and chairs were flying in every direction. We left the cabin and found difficulty In getting on deck, the boat rolled so heavily. I got a life preserver and put it on. The boat fell into the trough o the sea and would not obey the helm. She rolled heavily for about twenty minutes, when she was struck by a heavy sea and foundered and went down, with the engines working, about 10;80. The Asia was making for French river with men, horses and lumbermen's supplies for the shanties. I saw three boats loaded. I was In the first. About eight were with me. At first more got in, till the boat was overloaded and turned over twice, people clinging to my Ilfe-preservtT, wbieh got displaced and I tCrew It off. I then loft the boat and swam to the captains to at, which was near by, and asked John McDou gall, the purser, to help me in. He said it was of tut little use, but gave me a hand. When I got in there were eighteen in the boat. By that time there was a larger number in and clinging to the boat I had left. I know nothing of the third boat. Our boat rolled over and I missed McDougall. People were banging to the spars and other parts of the wreckage. Our boat was full of water and the sea continued breaking over us. One of the first to die in the boat was the caMn boy. He was dying, and being support ed by one of the men, when a wave washed him overboard. The next to go was a boat hand, who Jump ed out. I could see bim paddling around In the water for nearly J 00 yards. Our number was now reduced to seven, five of whom died before reaching the beach. Capt. Savage, who was the last, died In my arms about midnight Thursday, John Little, of Sault Ste. Marie Mate McDonald and two others, names un known, also died. The boat finally stranded near Point an Barrie about daylight Friday morning, with MIhs Morrison and myself only surviving. I put the bodies out on the beach and pried the boat off with an oar, but did not bail It out. Miss Morris n and I went down be beach in the brat to a derrick about two milts dletent, and laid on the beach all night About 8 o'clock Saturday morning an Indian came along, and I engaged him to bring us to Parry Sound. He would not bring the bodies. ABOUT OKI HCNDBED LITIS LOST.

NEW YORK DEMOCRATS. After the second ballot was taken for governor in the Democratic convention at Syracuse on the i2i Inst, a most animated scene took place. The candidates voted for on the second ballot were: Slocum, Cleveland, Homer, Nelson, Belmont, Campbell and Hutch ings, with no choice. A stampede then com menced for Cleveland. The entire Tammany delegation voted for bim. and various delega tions asked to change their votes. The floor of the convention was full of delegates stand ing in the seats and In the aisle, desirous of being recorded for Cleveland. The scene baffled description. A voice called for tbe unanimous nomination of Cleveland. The Kings county delegation attempted to stem tbe tide by having their names called again and voting solid for Slocum. The Slocum men secured some changes la favor of their candi date and called strenuously for another call of the roll. Senator Jacobs took the floor and said any result attained In this way would not give satisfaction. He therefore moved a new roll call. Angry delegates Instantly moved up in front and the convention was taken out of tbe control of the chairman. Some cried "roll call," others "announce the vote" and not a few in violent language demanded they be given their rights without indicating wherein they were wronged. Such a scene has not often been witnessed and for a time It was doubtful what would be the end. Chairman Faulkner declared he was unable to proceed. He attempted to speak several times but could not make himself heard. During a lull In the storm he was able to put Sanator Jacobs motion for a new roll call and declared the motion lost on a viva voce vote. On this the call of the roll was demauded and tbe secretary proceeded to call the names of delegated, an nouncing at tbe same time that it was for the purpose of deciding whether or not a new ballot should be iakeu before the announce ment of tbe result of the third ballot. After seme time It became evident that the vote would be almost entirely In the affirmative and the motion to declare Senator Jacobs' motion adopted wu carried. The secretary then pro ceeded to call the roll agnln and thete vas no announcement ef the third ballot. Mayor Cleveland, of Buffalo, was finally nominated on the fourth ballot. TORRENTS FROM THE SKY.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS. STILL HOLDING OUT. When the wholesale capture and sur render of Arabl's forces took place, there was onerebtl who positively refused to give up. This was AbdallahAPafcha, who bad charge of 5,000 troops In Damletta, and also held the forts of Dlbha and Gbemllah. On the 19ih Instant he was still Immovable, and the Brit'sh were preparing to compel bis surrender. In all other parts of Egypt, however, the British were in power, and trains were running regu larly between Alexandria aud Cairo. Later reports state that as 5.000 or 6,000 troops were proceeding to Eafr-el-Dwar to surrender, an entire regiment moved off eastward to Dami etta to Join Abdallah Pasha. The regiment con sisted of 500 men, and was that of Arabl Pasha. IS THE SULTAN TWO-FACED. A dispatch from Alexandria says: It is known that ths Saltan has quite recent ly been Id communication with Arab! Pasha through Damletta, and there can be no doubt that the resistance of the commander at that place originated from Stamboul. RETURNING TO THEIR FARMS. A dispatch from Zagazig says: The entire population of this part of the country have returned to their homes and'are working In their fields. Every house and hovel floats a white flag. The forbearance of the conquer ing army has produced a mostwboleeomeeffoct. All native property is left untouched. There has been an illumination every night since the arrival of English troops in honor of the Khe dive and England. ENGLAND'S POLICT. The London Times understands that the British consul general at Alexandria has been directed to Inform the khedlve that no capital sentence passed on Egyptian leaders must be carried out without tbe consent of Great Britain. Steps have been taken to do fend Arabl Pasha and other leaders of the re volt THE CZAR BbUND FOR MOSCOW. It looks as if the czar will at last make a decisive break for coronation. A dispatch from SL Petersburg of the 10th says: Thectar starts for Moscow to-night, roost probably fo coronation. All private tele graphic and r way traffic In the direction of Moscow wll J be suspended until bis arrival there and 30,000 troops will be stationed along the Una as far as Mofoow. Absolute secrecy is maintained In regard to the actoa dl f the coronation. A BILLET FOR BREAKFAST. Abdallah Fasha, who so obstinately held out against the British In the Fort of Damletta, baa met with trouble In bis own camp. He summoned bis black regiment and said he expected them to fight (111 the last. He declared that Arabl bad turned traitor and fled, but Kafr-el Dwar was making a heroic resist ance. The soldiers asked why they should risk their lives for Arabl and Andellah. The latter replied that they were not fighting for him but for their religion, their country, tbelr caliph. They should be ready, he said, to die as he was. The soldiers replied: "Then die;" and shot bim through the stomach. He is re ported not killed, and has dispatched his wil lingness to surrender. SAFE At MOSCOW. The czar of Russia arrived safely at Moscow on tbe 20tb. CONTRADICTED. Later news from Egypt virtually contradicts that Abdellnh Pasha is wll lie g to surrender. He was still holding Damletta nntbeft?dand was preparing to move on Cairo. The report seems to bave been started so be could gain time to strengthen bis posi tion. The British will move on his works and demolish them if resisted. ARABI'S STEAL. About 200,000 sterling were takeu from the Treasury by Aiabi Paxba; 18,000 was discovered at the War Office. Deficits are probable also in the Department of the Inte rior. SURRENDERED. The Fort of Damietta is in the hands of the Brltlah. WILL "GIVE IN" Bf CAUSE THEY HAVE TO. A Faris dispatch to the London Times says certain directors of the Suez Canal bave taken alarm at tbe view exprtseed by the Times in an article on the Suei Canal. In order to dispel any anxiety in regard to Englnad starting a second canal, they seem Inclined to effect an undrrstacdirg which would give Eugland full satisfaction aud per feet security for the future, while guarding the general intertsts at stake. Th s will probably be tbe way in which the canal Ques tion will be settled. DEPOSED. It is officially announced from Jed dah that the Grand Stiereef of Mecca bas been deposed and Imprisoned at Taiffe, where Mid hit Pasha was prisoner. Abdallah Ericauu has been named Grand Shereef. He" is a brother to the Sherbet murdered some time ago as sapposel by orders frem tbe Sultan because be wu favorable to the British. A DOUBLE DROWNING. Sad Accident to a Detroit Yachting Party on St, Clair Biver. About 4 o'clock Friday afternoon the yacht Annie K. arrived off Fort Lampton with a party on board con sisting of Andrew C. Kramer, Wm. T. Sackmann, Wm. T. Nartrnan andTheo dore Heinrich, who had started for a cruise on Lake Huron. The wind died out when the yacht reached Port Lambton, and Sackmann concluded to go ashore, but in stepping from the yacht into the small boat missed his balance and fell into the river. The swift current bore him rapidly down stream and although a fair swimmer ho was weighed down by his heavy clothes aud unable to reach the shore. The unfortunate young man's compan ion tore off the cabin doors of the yacht and threw them overloard, tiut they failed to reach him. Hartmann then stripped off his coat and vest and plunged in to the rescue, but found himself powerless to fight the current, and after reaching Sackmann both sank togethtr and were drowned. Kramer and Heinrich made desparate attempts to bring tbe yacht around in time to be of some service, but failed. No traces could be found of their lost companions. When the search had been given up Heinrich sent a dispatch to Mrs. Kra mer's yankee notion store at 170 east Fort street, stating that Sackmann and Hartman were lost. He then took the steamer Freeing Star for Detroit, reaching here at 9 o'clock last evening. Mr. Kramer will remain at Fort Lamb ton until the bodies are recovered. Sackmann was a young man of 23, emplo) ed as pressman in the Volks blatt office, and a member of the Cen tennial boat club, which meets this evening to take action in regard to his death. He lived at No. 103 Russell street Hartmann was 18 years old, and a son of the blacksmith at 99 Hasting street Kramer is the owner of the yacht and foreman of the Volks blatt office, and Heinrich is a commer cial traveler. Port Lambton, where the tragedy occurred, is a few miles south of Marine City, and the yacht was about 50 feet from shore when it happened. Leo Lochbiler and several others left this morning to drag for the bodies. Detroit Evening Newt, Sept.lG. The Rochdale plan of co-operative stores, which divides the profits among the purchasers instead of shareholders, is successful in England. In the ag gregate these establishments divided last year nearly 10 per cent on the gross amount of their sales. This is equal to 60 per cent, on the share capital a much larger ratio than the private dealer realizes, the greater pro fit arising from the fact that the co-operative stores are not required to go to any expense to get or retain custom, and that their business is so regular that they need suffer very little from dead stock. In 1861 there were 150 English societies, with 48,184 mem bers doing an annual trade amounting to about $7,500,000. In ten years the number of members and iiales increased fivefold; and the capital was nearly doubled. In the next decade the'mem bership doubled, the capital increased threefold, and the sales to more than 5,000,000 members amounted in 1880 to $100,000,000. "Don't my sou owe you a little bar bill?" asked Clonoel Yer&er, as he emptied his glass, turning to the Aus tin Avenue saloonkeeper who was de lighted at the prospect of the old man settling up his son's bill. "Yes, he owes me twenty-five dollars. Shall I receipt tho bill?" said the anxious saloonkeeper. "Well, no, but give me a dozen cigars aud add them on to my son's bill." A FATAL MISTAKE. IIow a Blundering Judgment May . bo Responsible for tho Most Serious Results. Mr. Edwin Booth said recently that be sup posed his lungs were affected, having a per sistant cough until be saw Dr. Mackentie of Loudon, who fouad that this syrm'tem arose from a disturbance of the liver. N. Y. Her ald. The above Item, which has been go ing the rounds of the press, is of no special significance other than to the personal friends of Mr. Booth, except that it brings to light a truth of the greatest importance to the world. Few people pass through life without the affliction of a cough at some point in their career. In most cases this is con sidered the result of a cold or the be ginningof consumption, and thousands have become terrified at this revelation and have sought by a change of air and . the use of cough medicines to avert the impending disaster. It may be said that more than half the coughs which are afflicting the world to-day do not have their origin In the lungs but are the result of more serious troubles In other organs of the body. "Liver coughs" are exceedingly common and yet are almost wholly misunderstood Arising from a disordered state of the liver they show their results by con gesting the lungs. In fact, the efforts of the liver to throw off the disease, produce coughing even when the lungs themselves are in a healthy state. Rut it is a mistake to suppose that such delicate tissues as the lungs can long remain in a healtry condition when they are being constantly agitat ed by coughing. Such a theory would be absurd. Consumption, which was feared at first, is certain to take place unless something is done to check the cause. This must be plain to every thoughtful mind. It stands lo reason, therefcre, that the only way in which "liver coughs" can be removed is by restoring the liver to health. In this connection another fact of great importance becomes known, which can best be explained by the re lation of an actual event. Mr. W , a wealthy cattle dealer of Colorado, be came greatly reduced in health and came east to Chicago for the purpose of being cured. He consulted Dr.J one of the leading physicians of the country on pulmonic subjects and be gan treatment for the cure of his lungs. Rut his cough increased while his stiength decreased. Finally he deter mined to consult another physiciau and applied to Dr. B . After a careful examination he was informed that his lungs was perfectly sound, while his kidneys were in a most terri ble condition. He had all the appar ent symptoms of consumption but he was suffering from the terrible Bnght's disease. The symptoms of consump tion are often the sure indications of Bright's disease. The above truths regarding coughs have been known by tbe leading physi cians for several years but the public have never been informed of them. They are serious facts, however, and should be understood by all, so that dangers which might otherwise prove fatal may be avoided. They clearly prove one great truth which is, that the kidneys and liver are such vital or gans that their health should be con stantly guarded. The distressing, hacking cough, which is often dreaded as the forerunner of consumption and the wasting strength which accompa nies lt,in all probability may arise from weakened or diseased kidneys or liver, to restore which would cause returning health. IIow this most desirable end may be attained has long been a prob lem, but few people of intelligence at the present day have longer any doubta that the popular remedy known as Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure has done more . to correct, relieve and restore these organs than any other preparations ever before known. There are hundreds of instances which have occurred within the past three months where individuals have believed them selves the victims of consumption, when, in reality it was deranged kid neys and liver, which this remarkable medicine has completely cured, as wit ness the following statement: Buffalo, N. Y., July 6, 1882. I. believe It to be a fact that thousands of cases of so-called consumption can be successfully treatod by simply using Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure as directed. J was one of the "given up to die" persons had every symp tom of the last stage of consumption bad cough of four years standing.night sweats, chills, etc., etc. A season south did no good, and the fact was the case looked diecouraging. I took Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure, and in three months 1 regained over twenty pounds, and my health wa fully re stored. W. C. BEACH, Foreman Buffalo Rubber Type Foun dry. Jt There are thousands of people in America to-day who believe they are the victims of consumption and destined to an early grave and who are trying to save themselves by the use of con sumption cures but are growing worse each hour. Let all such persons stop, and calmly consider whether they are not seeking to check a disease in the lungs when it is located in the kid neys and liver.
