Tho Coniniissloners bold a board moot

went through bis propurty and even Ills
reslticnco, and thus cast a cloud on tho

disadvantage if it wero offered for sale.
Tho extension was proposed to bo
made from Lo I toy street to California

and, while those who looked upon hor
as moving in an atmosphuro of wealth
anil luxury wero envying hor, sho was In

In this pitiable condition sho claims to

Thore is much excitement at tho New

Tho bright sun slanted down through
tho basement windows of tho Minor
School building on an odd sort of ascono
this morning.
Eighty little chairs bohlnd eighty llttlo
desks uru ranged up and down tho room
In eight formal rows.
In tho chairs wero a half hundred
little colored girls of all shades of brown
from almost whlto to obouy, yellow, cop.
per colored, sari brown, ecru, all with
needles In their pudgy fingers, some with
pricked thumbs thrust between their
thick lips and all hard ut work.
In the north basement room wero an
other half hundred litllo girls, not all so
llttlo either, for some of them are old
enough to wear long dresses, all hard at
work, too. Flitting about among thu
girls wero ten teachers, and sitting in u
chair on ti low plntfqrm at tbo head of
tlio room wns a pleasant-faced, white
haired woman that the children showed
their work to one at a tlmo. Tlio lady
with tho whlto hair was Mrs. Judgo
Aldis. and tho negro girsl composed St.
Luke's Indiiftrial School.
They woic of all ages of girlhood, from
llttlo ones in dresses so short that thci
didn't cover tbo holes In the knees of tho
stockings that somo of thorn woro, to
girls fourteen or fifteen years old. Tnoir
clothes wero in almost nil shades of sbttb
blness, but they wero warmly dressed,
and the yellow and brown and black faces
woro all clean, and the brown eyes nil
bent Interestedly over their sowing. Mrs.
Judgo Aldis is thu president of tlio school,
and both tho school-rooms wore tinder
her kind eyes.
SOMU OP THE TATllONKSSES.
Tho teachers flitted about from ono to
another of the llttlo girls. Miss Louisa
Dayard iu a neat street dress, witli her
brown hair piled In a comfortable coil on
top of her head, bad charge of the girls
in the north basement room, and Secre
tary Bayard's other daughter, Ellon,
helped her sister in teaching tho little
girls to sow.
Miss Waite, tho late Chiof Justice's
daughter, is .Mrs. Aldis' chief, and she
assists her hi a gonoral supervision of
tho sclio'oj.
Miss Taylor, Miss Aldis, Miss Norriss
of Wilmington, MIs3 Wordon, Miss

Alexander Crummull, whoso husband is
pastor of St. Luko's Church, arc the
other teachers. These charltublo ladles
have been giving their sorvlcos from ten
o'clock till noon every Saturday to toach
theso children how to work. Tho school
is dependent upon their and their
friends' charity and but for them it
would not oxist.
They teach tho pupils how to sow.com
menclng with patches and other simple
sorts ofou-hig. And many n patch on

WOllKINOS AT TUB SCllOOh.
Tho school Is opened each Saturday at
10 o'clock by a prayer and then for two
hours tho institution in all kinds of sow
ing goes on. As tho pupils progress they
nro given more dllllcult work to do.
Every stitch is Inspected by tho teachers,
and when tho girls graduato they aro
llrst-rato scumstrcsses.
Tho school was started in 18S1 by Mrs.
IJancroft Davis. It lias been a success
from the llrst. Tho negro girls tako
kindly to tlio work, and learn to sow al
most as readily as white girls would,
The ladies who have cbargo of tlio
school want to enlarge It so that instruc
tion in cooking can bo given too, nnd to
this end a lot adjoining St. Luke's
Church has been bought with money
donated by friends of tlio school, and as
tlioy get money a commodious building
will bo erected and the scope ot tho
school enlarged.
Uov. Mr. Crummull is very much in
terested in tlio schools.
"1 think industrial education is tbo
only solution of the race problem," ho
said tills morning. "If our young colored
peoplo wero taught to work, instead of
being taught latin and Orouk, it would
bo much better for them,
Colored peoplo comu from tho sur
rounding farms to this city as to a Mecca.
Thoy find all tho callings open to colored
peoplo overcrowded, and their only resort
is to steal. On tho farms through Vir
irlnia and Maryland and tbo Carollnns
tho negroes are abused iu every posslblo
way.; If thoy wero educated in tlio
trades thoyj might easily 'liiid employ
ment. 15ut thoy have not yet in this city
any place to learn trades, and that is
what thoy need. They could easily gut
alone without thoir Latin and Greek if
they wero practical artisans.
'As soon as wo can ralso money to
build a building ou our lot next to the
church wo intend to establish a thorough
industrial school tbat will fit colored
children to mako a living at respectable
trades. Hut wo have but llttlo money
and wo would never havo been ablo to
do as much as wo havo for theso colored
girls but for tho help of tbesu good
hearted ladies who havo cbargo of tho
good work."

tho unmistakable air of people well-to do and
bent on pleasmo.
They started from caso to case,, and were
loud Iu expressing astonishment at tho
wonders tbej saw. As they moved Into ono
of tho alcoves nn elderly Individual camo
slowly from tho other side, and, with a cry of
pain, fell back on a seat, and secmed'to faint,
lie was ngcil and shabby, and his suffering nt
once appealed to the old couple. They spoha
kindly to lilm, and ho ' revived, saying:
'There, there, good people; it Is nil right
now."
"Pressed toouplalu himself, he told-tho fol

"I'm Major John Wllklns., .of. JIcuiicssco

lost them. Jiulued in puree, mid broken In
health, I camo to Washington twenty ycais
ago to press my claim before the Cpttimlsslon."
Here, another elderly man, also seedy look

sionately at the speaker, who continued: "I
havo been throiisU ull tliu tortures known to

but I am left alone, In my ago and feebleness,
tho last member of a ouee proud and powerful

In his eyes.
Tho old man who Joined tlio parly last was
deeply affected also, and taking off his bat
tered hat, bo threw u coin dollar Into It and
suld: "My poor friend, I am myself only a
poor mortal, and cannot bo of much service
to myself or anybody else, but I'll gladly
stait the ball to give you a llttlo lift, for your

He held out tbo hat to thu old gentleman,
who quickly put n $10 note Iu It, and was fol
lowed by his wife, who throw In all tho small
coins In her haud-salehcl.
Tlio aged litigant was then assisted by tho

When they were outside, thu second old party

Sixth-street wharf, having arrived hem with
his wlfo and two boys utter u 7,000-mllo trip
from South Amei lea. liarllcld was born lu
1SS1 In Hong Hong, China, and wus named iu
honor of President Garlleld by Colonel Mosby,
consul at that point. Tho boy bus traveled
not less than U75,000 miles, Including two
voyages around thu world, and has touched
his foot upon the toll of tho threo Aineileas,
Knropc, Asia, Africa, any quantity of Islands
and been clear around Australia.
IIo Is a very bright little follow, asking moro
questions than two Yankees, and to-day vis
ited this oflleo to learn how "thoy mado a
newspaper." Ho took It all In from tho press
room hi the cellar to the bruin, depot ou tlio
top floor, Ills last trip oii the I.ibetdudc, a
bout thlrty-Ilvo feet long, carrying only four
tons, was 7,000 miles long, a sea voyago im
purallcd for a vessel of thu size. Ills father,

At times thoy wero 2,C0O miles from land and
tho frail llttlo craft met dangerous storms, hut
camo through safely, t lailield i u good sailor
and has never shown any fear at sea, lu fact,
hu doesn't know anything but tlio sen, having
never lived on laud louger than two weeks at
a time.
This I.lberd.ido trip, however, did not strlko
him very favorably, and tho llrst night on
board tho small boat, when ho knell ut his
mother's kueo to Bay his prayers, hu looked
around a moment and doulitlugly remarked:
".Mamma, this boat Isn't big enough to

Ou tho vojago ho said ho warned to stand

After that ho wanted to get a pair of wings

No, li, Mr. Speaker, I'm follerin' direct hi

Tho Ilaron says:
"I urn n bitter onemy of fanaticism,

Jewish question can only bo solved by
tho disappearance of tbo Jowisb race,
which will inevitably be accomplished
by tho tiimdgamntiou of Christians and

of conversion of .lows to Christianity,
but J cannot recall n solitary Instance of a
Christian becoming convened to Juda

similation. "Let tliom bo amalgamated by Christi

Nr.w YottK, Jan. 12. Secretary Fair
child has ordered that all special Treas
ury agents In tho country who can bo'
spared from their posts of duty shnll
hasten at once to tills city to assist in n
thorough, top-to-bottom Investigation of
Iho ollieo of tbo appraiser of tho port.
Thu Chief Supervising Special Agent,
Colonel Jewell, will nrrlvu here from
Washington to-tlay, and Coionul Mont
gomery, chief Treasury agent at ltostou,
lias been telegraphed for nnd will get
hero at the samo time.
Mr. T. C. Tingle, tlio special agent,
ouo of tho three who investigated tlio
eiislom-houso two years ago, will bo iu
Now York to meet tliein, As fast as tlio
other special agents arrivo they .will bo
assigned to tlio resticctivo lines of de
tective work for which tlio chief super
vising ugent thinks them to bo best titled.
This important step is thu result of a
conference at tbo custom-house yestor
day afternoon lu tho collector's olllco be
tween Collector Mngono and Appraiser
A. 11. Stearns of Boston, who has tempo
rarily taken charge of the oflleo mado
vacant by Mr. McMttllln's removal.
1'iVldcncu of a startling natitro ns to
the corruption and rottenness of tho ap
praiser's olllco under Mr. McMullin's
mnnagument wns prcsouted. Thero Is
not tbo slightest hint rcllecting upon tho
peTOiml integrity of Mr. McMullin,
whoso unfortunate position, nftor a long
and faithful service of thirty-six ycar3
iu tlio appraiser's oflleo, arouses gonoral
sympathy among Uio Custom-IIouso offi
cials. Hut tlioro scorns to bo no doubt what
ever that tho most gigantic frauds havo
been ,'pcrpctrated during the past thrco
years, iu which ho has been at tbo bead
of the most important ofllcc.
Certain merchants havo been favored
at tbo expense of the Government and of
honest importers, undervaluations on im
enormous scale havo been permitted, and
tho Treasury Department has been de
frauded of millions of dollars. That may
seem liko a strong statement, but it
comes from nn less a poisonago than Ap
praiser Stearns.
Examiner Hardwell of tlio AVool Di-'
vision will also bo called ou to explain.
Tho charge against lilm is that ho lias
permitted tho importation of what nro
known as woolen noils 11 cheap grndo
of foreign wool at llvo cents a pound
duty, when at all other ports tho entry
of the same grade of goods was not per
mitted at less than tun contsduty.
Tho investigation will begin to-day as
soon as Colonel Jewell arrives.
One of the first officials to bo over
hauled will bo Assistant Appraiser
-Moore of tho Damage Allowanco Divi
sion, who Is not to bo confused with Ex
aminer Moore of the Tobacco' Division,
above relerrcd.
Appraiser Staarns when asked in whnt
division tho frauds were chiefly pjacttced,
said: "SoTiir" Ih"oyr'appca'fcd to liuln
tlio sugar department. Ilut wc have not
investigated tlio others thoroughly yet.
1 havo discovered Unit an immenso
amount of new sugar has boon passed
without tho payment of duties.
"When I say that millions of dollars
were save by tho importers, you will un
derstand how great a quantity of raw
sugar lias been landed hero with In tho
past three years without tho payment of
propor duties, This could not havo been
dono without collusion on tlio Dart of
Government employes,"
"How was tbo scboino worked? By
false tests of tbo sugar. I suppose ami
fraudulent samples. Tho coming in
vestigation will probably throw moro
light upon tho method of the swindle."
Meantime, it is said, Mr. McMullin in
tends to contest tbo legality of bis re
moval, which, ho claims, was not iu ac
cordance with section 1,707 of tho Re
vised Statutes.
