~o w ,Icily's Call lot- /i Fund wltli illicit to Fight Jay Gould. from iht Sue lor* Nu.n. A new feature of tiie strength of the Kui hts of Labor as an order is u fuud pledged to General Master Workman I'uwderlf and the General Executive for the lighting of the battles of the order m the courts. Over $1,000,000 has L,.„ pledged, and may be had whenever. In the judgement of the Executive Board, i, h needed. Vt th.- time Jay Gould announced his Intention to break up the order if it cost hui! a mint of money, and to do it through the medium of the law. Mr. Powderly ..ted promptly and effectively. A letter ’ as ge nt to every local assembly in the or( ier within a week. Bed letter meet iras were called by the Master Workmen, in many instances the communication be mm! such importance that every mam ber was called upon to take part in con sidering what should be done. In the letter Mr. Powderly declared tbat a fund with which to light Gould was absolutely necessary. "See that every member of your local is [resent,” said the communication, "and calmly consider every feature of the question at issue before oomiug to a con clusion. We must be ready to tight fire W!ta tire. Jay Gould, with his millions, has said publicly that the oruer must be killed, and that he would do it by making the machinery of the law his weapons, tve can do nothing against the man with out money, and money we must have and quickly. We want $1,000,000. Let the locals raise the money at once, and have it ready when we shall call for it.” Mr. Powderly at great length continued to show the power Mr. Gould had in the courts, and ;he ‘‘imperative necessity” ot being aide to meet him with the same weapon which he would employ. The tone of the letter clearly showed that the General Master Workman believed that the order was in jeopardy. Some consternation was created by the communication, and every local assem bly in the order took prompt action. The result was that a lund of $1,000,000 was raised within a week after the letter was written. The money was either takeu from the treasury of the local or an immediate assessment was made upon individual members. Mr. Pow derly was informed ot the result, and within ten days alter dictating tne letter, he had the knowledge that the money was not wanting for the purpose of meeting Gould in court. The fund is stiil held, and may be called lor at any time. Efforts were made to induce the Execu tive Board to take a hand in defending tne New York boycotters and even the Chicago anarchists, but they met with a prompt retusal. “The order is either too big or too small,” said a member at a meeting ot the General Executive Committee in Phila delphia last week, “and the question of extending it so as to take in all working men, or of cutting it down so as to be manageable by the present system, must be acted upon at the session ot the Gen eral Assembly in October. It is too cum bersome, and at the rate of increase of the last three months within a year would entirely outgrow the present style of ma chinery. “The work imposed upon the General Executive Board is so heavy that the ac tive members are Incapable of giving it proper attention, and the consulting mem rx rs are really Ot no practical service. The General Assembly will probably go further than the special session went, and besides increasing the active force of the General Board will divide the work up geographically.” While the member referred to consid ered the necessary improvement in ma chinery important to the order, he freely declared that the most important question to be considered was the political future ot the order. There is a very strong sentiment, back ed by the Home Club, in favor of forming a labor party and making nominations in ail the States. Others less radical prefer active work at the primaries. They say “Take a hand in making the nominations ot both the dominant parties, and let the election take cat e of Itself.” Still another, and the conservative class, including Master Workman Powderly, oppose any political action whatever. There the (treat fight of the general session will take place. In New York the Knights are almost solid for separ ate action, not so much with a view to electing the nominees as to defeat all who may in any way be con nected with the conviction of the boy cotters. The Home Club, which includes the brains ofthe New York Knights, has been at work laying plans for the captur ing of the General Assembly on this politi cal question, and nearly every delegate from New York and Brooklyn, as well as horn the other assemblies in the vicinity oi those cities, has been pledged to light for the control of the General Assembly. Chicago, St. Louis, and several other western cities will also send delegates favorable to the Home Club’s course, arid the conservatives fear that they will be outnumbered. Philadelphia has a dele gation which, in tiie main, opposes any middling in politics. Ibe delegates believe that an active part in politics would be the beginning of toeendnl the order. The middle ground of e commending strong efforts at the prunaiit-s will probably bo accepted by jxitu parties. The membership is so large n 111 a 'lv every city that a combined tight would defeat any man who was marked by the order. Tbo agitators say that tocre Is no issue between the Democrats ood Republicans of great importance , . ai 'd that the workingmen are ready to break away from party ties and vote ■or personal interests, while the session of the General As ton >]v will t>e held too late in the tail to pthnil! of great party organization, it will ••vs tune to marshal the voters for the pur pone of voting for or against individual ''tainess, and that such will be clone is 'limited by every prominent man in the j, , \ Already has tue Home Club and orth i Prt4 14 ,)laok list, and the result el ’ oe election in Novemner will bo uu am until the ballots wo counted. *h '.*! politicians have been awaro that • iu"glit a ( ,t Labor are preparing to I ■ a,, d many have endeavored to get fli ' v ‘■? > " ks for their own persona! bene a'. ■ lr "owderly saw it six months ago, t 111 f circular letter sent to every local ot , T. urged tho members to keep out to n’ 1 " :s 111111 ,0 relegate tho politicians 10 the background.

To establish the practice Of a regulation price loi the service would not benefit tne ministers, becau-e the average marriage fee is much larger than oould very well be fixed upon as a uniform rate. Have 1 any Idea what the average mar riage fee Is? Well, let’s see. When I was a young preacher 1 had a fairly well to-do congregation, and lived m a good neighborhood. I married 162 couples in live years and 1 received $478 in cash, one silver watch and a tin wash boiler. That is an average of about $3 for each mar riage. In my present congregation, which is in a financial way much superior to that of my early years, my marriage fees have been sufficient in the past ten years to buy me a very comtortatde house, if I were disposed to invest in real estate. 1 have_received a fee of SSOO in one instance and 50c. in another, and I married oue couple tor nothing anil gave them a few hundred dollars to begin housekeeping on —the bride was my daughter. I have a ministerial friend in this city, who is very well known, who was paid $5,000 as a marriage fee, which is the largest that I have any personal knowledge of.” One of tne popular Methodist pastors of the city says tnat ho has received from S2OO to a pa'r of juicy spring chickens for marrying people. “On one occasion,” the minister said, “I took a drive of 16 miles and paid $5 for tne privilege of marrying a couple who did not even invite me to the marriage supper. That was in New Jersey. The groom promised to send me a fee large enough to include theoostof the conveyanoe, but I was never able to collect either. Once a marriage fee came near getting me into very serious trouble. 1 was [.aid a $5 hill by "the groom which was a counterfeit. I placed the bill in my pocketbook, and a lew (jays afterward Had occasion to go over to Baltimore. When I went into a store to buy a pair ot gloves I gave the salesman the $5 bill and waited for my change. Unfortunately for mq a swindler had been passing bad money in Baltimore about that time, and a description of the fellow had been put in tho papers. In a general way I hap pened to answer fairly to that descrip tion, and it was with great difficulty that 1 prevented the clerk who was waiting on me from handing me over to au officer, whom he had called after closely examin ing the note. Of course the newly mar ried man who had given me the money was greatly mortified. He afterward gave me a beautiful colt as compensation, aud redeemed the note, ol oourse. “it is a pretty mean thief who will swindle a poor country preacher with a large family aud a small salary; but 1 once knew a man mean enough to "do that by means of a bogus marriage. He came to a small country town in which my church was located. This was in New Y'ork State. Near me lived a Baptist minister who had a hard struggle to make both ends meet. A man and a woinau drove up to his house one evening and were married. The man had a large roll of bills, and pretended that he was look ing for ass note among them, but they were all for SIOO. The fellow was profuse iu his apologies; said he wassorrv that ha had no small bills, and did not want to go away without giving the minister a fee. Was it passible for the paster to get one ot the large bills changed. The poor clergyman, eager to get a cash $5 mar riage fee, which was something unusual wl'h him, went to his little hoard and gave the man $95. The next day the clergyman found that the SIOO bill was a counterfeit, aud he was never able to find the swindler. The marriage was a put-up job, and about the most contemptible trick 1 ever knew or heard of.” Ex-Mayor Bradshaw, of Camden, dur ing the latter part of hie term had a queer fish come to his mdtrimonial net. A Philadelphia couple went over the river, and callingat the Majmr’s residence asked to be married. The groom said tbat he had been out of emplopmentfnj some tune and had no fee to offer. The Mavor being a good-natured man readily agreed to dis pense with the fee, and promptly married the ijnpecunious couple. A few minutes alter the ceremony the groom came back to the Mayor’s house and sought to bor row $3, as be said be desired to celebrate the marriage. Before he could recover from Jhe shock the Cbiet Magistrate was actually induced to hand over a dime, as a reward, he subsequenty remarkeu, “for the gall of the thing.” The most common fee in Camden from the people who cross the ferry to get mar ried is sl, which is given with a request that the marriage notice he published in a Philadelphia paper. This costs 60c. The marriage certificate costs an audi tions! sc..|postage 3c., and the minister or magistrate has just 420. as his share of the groom's prodigality. Of course they oanuot refuse—at least they do not —but the marriages are becoming so numerous and the foes so ridiculous that the Camden ministers and magistrates say that they do not propose to marry all Philadelphia for nothing. “The Phila delphia ministers,” said one of the breth ren in Camden, “get all the fat fees, and the others come over hereto us. We pro pose to raise the rates.” SILLY JOHN L. SULLIVAN. Tlie Way He Tried to Show Hi* In difference u> Money. Two or three years airo, 1 was night clerk at the Hotel Nantasket at Nantas ket Beach, said a Boston hotel clerk to a reporter of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat the other day. One night, John L. Sulli van, with Pete McCoy and a few of his other sporting friends, came in and want ed something to drink, it - was after 12 o’clock, and the bar was closed, but the head barkeeper happened to be near the desk, and knowing Sullivan be opened the doors and the party wont it. They sat at a table for some time and tirank a couple of bottles of wine. They had evidently had some before coming to the hotel, aiid they felt the effects of it pretty strongly. As they eat there, a dispute arose about some point or other, which 1 did not un derstand, and Sullivan llnully wanted to bet $lOO that he was right. “Oh. come off',” said McCoy, “you haven’t got $100.” “llain’t 1?” retorted Sullivan, in a loud voice, as he rose from the table. “I’ll show you I’ve got money. See nere,” and quick as a wink he drew a magnificent, gold watch from his vest pocket, released it Irom the guard and threw it with his whole strength against the partition which separated ttie wine room troni the hotel lobby. It sounded like a bullet Irom a gun as it struck the wood work. Of course the watch was ruined. Tnat was a sample of the reckless and foolish displays which he frequently made in those du's. But it is not only the “plug uglles” and “thugs” who do such things. I have seen exhibitions equally nonsensical on the part of some of tbo highest toned bloods of the Ilub. 1 happened in a rich hotel bur in Boston one night wneu a youth who occupies u place In the ’best society” cauie in and ordered wine for himself and friends. Tney sat at a table in front of the bar, and after the bottle had been ernptbd, the young man deliberately picked It up and sent it crashing through a magnificent Kreucb mirror, which filled the whole wall hack ot the bar. Then he drew a check book from his pocket, signed a blank, aud before the proprietor had time to show anger, asked him how much he should fill it out for. That break oust bun $l,OOO.

So many excellent stories have been current about the ltev. B. J. Breckin ridge. and the doctor said so mnny good things which were widely repeated, that, in giving publicatiou to any of them, we can never know whether we are repro ducing something previous iu print or not. It is related tiiat when he was President of the college at Jefferson, Pa., his atten tion was constantly called to the non-at tendenceof a majority of the students at church. He persistently inquired into the cause of this, and was as regularly in formed that it was due to the illness of tbo absentees. On one occasion, however, he was so fortuuate as to have nearly all of the students before him, and proceeded to improve it. “Young gentlemen,” he said, “I under stand quite well that, in common with the rest of mankind, you are not inclined to listen cheerfully to religious exhortation when an attempt is made to give it prac tical application, yet there is oue mani festation ot an overruling Providence of which 1 feel that l should especially re mind you, as one In which you are es pecially concerned. There is not one ot you, perhaps, who has not been prevented from attending church nearly every Sab bath of this year by sickness of some sort. Now, how grateful you should he for that, kind, although inscrutable dis pensation ol Divine mercy which pro vides that while everybody is siok no one shall die.” W hen he was a professor of the theo logical seminary at Danville, Ky., he had a neighbor, a certain Mr. Tomkins, whom he held in high esteem. Mr. Tom kins was a Methodist, and bo never met Dr. Breckinridge that a humorous polemi cal passage ot arms did not follow. Once the dootor felt sure that he had htin on the hip. “Tomkins, that last load of hay you sold me was short of weight. Now, while 1 can’t, of oourse, expect as much of a Methodist as of a Presbyterian, still 1 looked for better treatment than tbat from you.” “Well, doctor,” replied Mr. Tomkins, “that sort of thing must happen occasion ally. Y'ou know tbat we Methodist believe in "such a thing as ‘falling from grace.’ ” “Oh, it isn’t your doctilne,” responded Dr. Breckinridge, “that i complain of. It isn’t what you claim; butit’s the way you have of living up to your privileges.” The Presbyterians of Kentucky just be fore and during the war were divided iu allegiance, according to thoir political sympathies, between Dr. Breckinridge and Dr. Stuart Uobinson. These two em inent divines, both so justly celebrated lor intellectual superiority and learning, were no less distinguished by ardent and unyielding convictions and aggressive, positive tempers, which inclined them to show noquarter In oontruvery, and to re gard with very little favor either au op ponent’s opinions or character. Dr. Breckinridge was an uncompromising Union man and tierce contemner of every thing connected with secession ami the South. Onceduring the war he was indulging before au auditory of mixed politics in a bitter diatribe against Morgan’s com mand. A lady bearerof fervent Southern sympathies, having listened for some time in silence, but with much impatience, at length exclaimed: “I am astonished to hear you speak in that way, Dr. Breckinridge, of Morgan’s commaud.wneti you have two sonswho are officers iu it.” “Well, reallv, madam,” said the doctor, blaadlv, “1 hadu’t forgotten that fact. But I "can’t say that 1 have heard tbat they bring up the average of that crowd to any considerable extent.” “Then what nave you to say about Tom Bullitt?” queried his fair enemy, tri umphantly. “You have always declared him to be the very best young man you knew. He has been your favorite and model, yet he has been with Morgan all the time.” “That,” said the doctor, after a moment of apparently profound reflection, “was long a matter of sore distress to me, as well as of great wonder aud perplexity. I could not understand how the Lord could permit it. But finally the thought came 1 to me like a rtveiation. that II Tom Bullitt hadn’t run off and joined Morgan, his mother would have made him study the ology with Stuart Uobinson, and I humbly recognized that the ways of Providence are best.” THEY GET TIGHT ON GINGER. The Loquacious Drummer Inter views a Drug Clerk. “I suppose you saw that paragraph about ginger drunkards’ down South,” said a drummer to a Boston Globe re porter in Young’s tbe other day. The reporter thought he had seen some thing of the sort. “Well,” continued the drummer, “you needn’t cross the Mason and Dixon line to find such persons, though 1 can’t say that Boston has many ginger drunkards. Still, she has lots of folks woo take their ginger as regularly as 1 take my dinuer. Some of them you will find are rounders tvho have sworn off so to speak, yet their craving for a stimulant must be satisfied, and, rather than stand the guying of thefr friends who still haunt the barroom they go to the nearest drug store and tell the clerk they ate suffering trom colic. He gives them a light dose of essence of gin ger. Tne next time they take it a little stronger, and so on until they acquire the habit, as it might be called. Then they are suddenly laid up with some complaint aud thus they are forced to quit driDkiug for a while at least. Still there are other places where gin ger tippling is indulged in to a greater ex tent than here. Take New York, for in stance. When 1 was on there, some time ago, I met a friend of mine who is pretty well posted. We felt dry, so we snipped Into a drug store on Broadway. WDlle at the soda counter 1 saw the clerk pour about two ounces of a dark liquid into a tumbler, add a little soda, and hand it to a man who stood near me. it smelled rather strong, and tuy lrieutl alter nudg ing me said: ‘Let’s have some of that.’ The young man at the counter said he didn’t think we’d like It as It was a specie l flavor. As he put the bottle on tbe -cu I saw tbe label. It read: Tinct. Tinzlber,’ widen I knew to mean tincture of ginger. Then I took the clerk to task for fooling tne. “ ’Special flavor. Indeed.* I saul.‘That’s nothing but essence of ginger.’ Tne clerk owned up that It was, but t e added that the man got mad if lie gave him away, so he had tried to bluff us. “Do >o.i baveauv ginger customers?” 1 lnqulri and of the drug clerk. ••Ob, yes,” lie replied, "we have a num ber of them. One man drops in lour or five time* a day and takes about lour drachms at a dose. He comes from Balti more. lie told me down there that ginger drinking is very common. Now, if you nix) going away into the country you want to take one of these small bottles along, ii will tit In your coat pocket and we will label It cough medicine if you like. Lots oi folks buy a half dozen bot tles at a time, mostly tor an emergency. Two parties down at Asbury Bark are regular customers. I heard tbe other dav tbat a certain firm spent $10(1,000 last year advertising their gin ger.” “Do your customers ever get drunk ?” I asked. “That’s hard to say,” answered tbe clerk. They do got very Irritable, and some will always give you the storY about their stomach being a little off. How it oould by otherwise is wb*t our- prises me. Speaking of drinks, 1 prefer on n day like this eomething like—” “Whisky and soda,” l suggested. The young man reached lor a bottle labelled “Broadway punch,” and we took , tbo hint, thinking tbat of the two evils' we’d chooso the lesser. A FEMALE RAKEY. The Woman Wlio Breaks Horses In llappy Camp, California. From a if "doe Letter, “Y'es, break horses,” was the feminine's reply when asked about her vocation. “I can break any horse; can't I, Jim?” This to the stage driver, whose wonderment increased each time he saw the phenome non. “Are you a writer for the papers?” asked the lady when the questions be came a little pointed. “O,” she con tinued, “I wish l could get to the city. I am sure I surprise the city folks,” and tho modern wonder jumped lightly on the back of a 16-hand horso, and with only a whip jn her hand guided the animai whithersoever she wanted. ••There, what do you think of that?" i she inquired, as she eracelully rolled oil’ the horse’s back. “Y'ou know I have a heap to couteod against.” and the equine iadv lowered her voice into a whisper. “The men are all jealous of me: yes, and though thebrutes are jealous they have to come to me. Why, lam sent (or from ull parts of the country. 1 have often been called in to break a horse when it has been spoiled by these so-eallfd horse breakers. I don’t know how I took to horso breaking. It came natural to pte. I began to break horses when 1 was 15 years old. You know 1 was born in Mioblgan. I have been all over the United States you might say. When 1 was in Oregon I took lessons from Karey, as well as all tbo rest of the great horse-breakers that have visited this coqntry. No. I don’t give away my secret In breaking in horses. They have tried to steal it from me, but I am too sly for that. Wait till 1 get to San Fran cisco. and then I shall be known all over the world.” The last seen of this eccentric female washer attempting to mount a huge, stout stallion barebacked, while her hus band and onqor two of her stable help stood well out of the ranee of the skittisn creature’s heels. Notwithstanding the fact that cowboys are Quixotic In their devotion for the fair sex, this woman filled them with the most sovereign con tempt and disgust, and when she visited this ranche in search of work the men showed their dislike for her and her man ners so plainly that, they refused to talk to her and even to sit at the table with her. “Horse breaking,” they said, “was all well and good for men, but when It is followed by a woman tho wnman and not the profession ought to be despised.” A MHS. ENOCH ARDEN. A Former Chattanooga Man Unin tentionally a Digamist. Chattanooga, Tknn., Aug. 10.—A romanoe almost without parallel eftme to light in this city to-day, aud so Intricately Is the plot interwoven that it would make truth appear stranger than fiction. Thirty years ago there resided near this city then a straggling village, James Stains, a sturdy young farmer, with a wife and two littje boys, lij 1854, Starns concluded to try his fortune in tbq West, and went to California. 4 month later, having found n pleasant Settlement, he fic-nt his wife money with vyhlchto join him. Mrs. Starns wrote, saying, she would start In two months, but at the, end of that time she had received no rpply. Starns wrote letter attar loiter to his wife nod relatives, and sho wrote to film, VUt neither ever re ceived a word of the other. Ten years afterwards Starns sent bis wife SS(XJ but the rhohey went back to him as no one called for it. By this time both the husband and wife each supposed the other dead. Mr. Starns went to Michigan and from thence to Wisconsin, where six years ago he married the daughter of a wealthy farmer. By some strange fate he drifted to Chattanooga last week. Not even the oldest inhabitant remembered him and he could find no trace of his folks. To-day he learned that a family named Starns resided near the city and procur ing a carriage, took his wife to assertsin whether or not they were his relatives. Arriving at the house Starns was horrified to find that the aged white haired iadv who received him was no other than bis first wife and be realized the lact that he had two wives. An explanation followed and the wives were introduced but each exhibited a marked coolness. The parttee reluse to talk aud it is not known what they will do. THROYVN INTO A DEEP GORGE. Le Dcnneaux Meets with a Terrible Accident on Lookout Mountain. From the Chattanooga Times, Leo Denneaux, a bright lgd oi 13 years of age and who is well known in the city, met with a probably fatal accident on Lookout Mountain late Monday after noon. A delivery wagon started down the Bt. Klmo pike and young Denneaux jumped in to ride as far as the bridge across tbe deep gorge. When the wagon reaobed the bridge the Utile fellow, in at tempting to alight, ! II over the side of the wagon aud was caught between the railing aud tbe wheels. Ho struggled manfully to save himself, but the next revolution of the wheel threw bint over the bridge in the gorge. He iell on a pile of sharp rocks with such force that the driver supposed he was killed. Assist ance was hurriedly summoned and young Denneaux was removed to his home, where he remained In un unconscious condition for three hours. Dr. Berlin rendered medical aid. but fears the un fortunate youth has sustained dangerous internal injuries. Uiscondition was very critical yesterday. Rigger Than a Hoc’s Egg;. From tiro Cincinnati Knouirrr. For a long period one ot the proudest at tractions ol the zoological gardens has been a superb pair of ostriches, and tho feelings of the snperintoedent can ho l et ter imagined than described when, a few days ago he found the female bird lying .1 the cave dead. The preceding evening she had been stalking about the confines ol her prison picking at the grass and other edibles with avidity, tne pic ture of health and contentment. He was completely nonplussed, and sent to tbe taxidermist, Unarles Dury. with tbe request tbut he rnaks a post mortem examination and remove the stomach for analysis—this on the suppo sition that she had been poisoned. The following morning employes of tho garden transferred the remains to the taxider mist’s place In Avondale, and the first thing bo took cognizance of was the tact that thu tnigb bono of tho left leg was Irlghtlully shuttered. This be thought strange, hut not more so than that all the bones had an undue proportion ol lime in their composition. Un opening tbe hodv the mystery of the broken limb and the cause of death were at onoe made plain.. Therein he found un egg of enormous proportions. Jn Its longest diameter It measured fifteen inches, while the shortest diameter was nine inches. This abnormal development bad been caused by the steady anil long continued addition of layers or shell to the egg as normally formed, and which is not more than tour and a halt by aix inches. Forty-six eggs, in all stages of formation, lay in her body, so that, bad sbo not been ao wofully afflicted, there would have (men more than enhance that she would have equaled the record of llie emu, which has a record of filly u*gs.
