The convention of the “American Ship ping and Industrial League,” which meets at Pensacola next Tuesday, prom ises to be well attended and to attract a great deal of attention. The aim of it is, of course, to promote the interests of the Gulf ports, and with that aim iu view a number of very important questions will be submitted for discussion. The three most important of these ques tions relate to shipbuilding and iron manufacturing at the Gulf ports, aud the openiug of direct trade between these ports and Central and South American countries. The chances are that in time the ship building industry will take root on the South Atlantic or Gulf coasts. The ships of the future will be built of iron, and it is now being demonstrated that better and cheaper iron can be made in the South than in any other part of tho country. Whether the ship building interest in the South will first find a lodgment on the South Atlantic or the Gulf coast will depend largely upon transportation. The iron from the mills oan be brought to Savannah, for Instance, at a less coat than it can be taken to Pen sacola or New Orleans. The shipbuild ing interest, it established in the South at all, will perhaps be established first at Savannah. It is noticeable that the iron that now finds its way from Alabama to the Northern cities goes by the way of this oity. With reference to iron manufacture there is no reason why there should not be such an industry established at the Quit and South Atlantic porta. The only question is whether it can be carried on to better advantage at the ports than in .the vicinity of the mines. Trade between this country and Central and South America will not reach great proportions until there is euoh a reduc tion in the tariff ae will enable our manu facturers to compete with those of the Eu ropean countries whioh now control the Central and South American trade. When that Is done the Gulf ports will doubtless become active competitors for that trade. Tho President’s Private Secretary. Some of the Washington correspond ents are trying to make the country be lieve that the President’s private secre tary, Col. Lamont, baß more influence with the President than any member of the Cabinet. This sort of stuff will doubtless do for special dispatones in dull timea, but it ought Dot to be accepted as being abso lutely true. Col. Lamont doubtless has the confidence of tne President in a re markable degree, and there is every rea son to think that he is worthy of all the confidence placed in him, but the truth probably is that his judgment. In not con sulted at all respecting matters which come within the range of the duties of Cabinet officers. The state ment, therefore, that he has more Influence with the President than anyone of the Cabinet officers must not to be un derstood to mean tbat ho ever attempts to thwart Cabinet officers, or that he inter feres with them in any way. Col. Lamont has the qualities which are necessarv for a first-class private secretary. Ho is intelligent, well in formed about everything with which he is likely to have anything to do, polite, secretive and untiring in the interest ot his employer. The President looks upon Col. Lamont as a friend, and he has proven himself well worthy to be the President’s friend. 001. Lamont looks out for tho President’s interests in every possible say, and ad vises him to do only what, be thinks it will be best for him to do. He is as loyal as it is possible for a man to be, and his loyalty, combined with hit amiability and good hard common sense, is wnat makes him so highly appreciated by the President. Better Houses Wanted. There are a great many very good bouses in Savannah, and there are a great many that are not very good. Those who are forced by circumstances to rent houses have the latter faot very forcibly impressed on their minds. They are also Impressed with the fact that there are very few good houses to rent in the city, tbat is houses that are good accord ing to the modern Idea of excellence. There have been hundreds of cheap tenement bouses built during the past few years, but it may be said that many of these are very inferior buildings, mere makeshifts In tact, put up so as to en able the owners oi lots to derive an income from their real estate without investing much money in improvements. There are many new houses In the city that present a very creditable appearance from the streets that are not provided with tho simplest convienenoes, such as water and gas, ser vice pipes, olosets. etc. The proportion of tenements tbat are well provided with what are denominated “modern con veniences” is comparatively small. In building bouses to rent money is sometimes tnrown away on ornamental or “ginger-bread” work that ought to be put to some substantial use. The ar rangement or the gas and water pipes, alsodralnage and ventilation, are matters of the first Importance. Ornament is or should be a secondary consideration. A small amount judiciously Invested will not only make property a great ileal more valuable, but will enable the owners to keep their houses occupied by the better classes of tenants. An Aristocratic Business Manager. Doubtless some of the New York so ciety people will open tneir doors to Lord Lonsdaie, who appears in this country us t he business manager ot Violet Cameron’s theatrical company. There is such an anxiety on the part of some Americans to be known as the entertainers of an English nobleman that they are willing to overlook indiscretions and questiona ble surroundings. The New York newspapers scented a scandal, and possibly a tragedy, as soon as tho Cameron opera troupe reached tbat city. The husband of Violet Cum eron reached New York on a ditl-rent steamer only a lew minutes after his wife, and announced that he was here to keep an eye on her. It seems that he and his wile have quarreled, and he aud Lord Lonsdale bavo already had one or two little rough and tumble fights. Miss Cameron, n she is called, went fr<m tue steami r to tho Hoffman House, but the proprietor of tbat establishment concluded that etc wee not the sort of Attaat he * aaXML Be srex air aid that the SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS: FRIDAY. OCTOBER 1.1886. husband and lavrd Lonsdale would have a shooting affair in his splendid barroom, and perhaps ruin some of his costly works of art. He, therefore, advised the handsome English woman to seek other quarters, which she proceeded to do with out further invitation. Of course all of this gossip, which is perilously near a sensation, and it may be a scandal, will help to advertise the Cameron Opera Company. New York will rush to see the woman who has a Lord for a business manager, and whose husband is so jealous of her that he shadows her as if he were a detective, al though it is understood that he is pretty near the bottom of his purse. Doubtless the public will hear something more of the Lord, the actress and the jealous hus band before tho theatrical season ad vances very far. Perhaps the tragedy they mav present off the stage will sur pass anything they may present on the stage. Beer Drinking in Germany. Our Consul at Chemnitz, Mr. Tanner, has furnished the State Department with some interesting facte about beer drink ing and the amount of beer drunk in Ger many. The Consul says tbat the amount of beer produced in Germany in 1885 was 1,100,000,000 gallons. This, he says, is enough “to form a lake more than one mile square and six and a half feet deep, or it would make a running stream as large as some of our rivers.” If Consul Tanner’s information is cor rect the consumption of intoxicating liquors in Germany per head is about four times as great as it is in this country. The number of drunkards there, however, is exceedingly small compared to the number in this country. The explana tion of this, according to the Consul, is the method of drinking. The Germans drink very slowly, sometimes occupying lrom a half to three-quarters of an hour in consuming one glass of beer. All kinds of intoxicants are taken sip by sip. Has Consul Tanner discovered a way to prevent drunkenness which is more effective than pronibition? Speaking of the slow way in which tho Germans drink their liquors he says: “Thisis so simple that one is liable to ridicule for laving stress upon it, and yet on this one point hinges, in my opinion, a question ot vast importance to Americans. By this man ner of drinking the blood is aroused to greater activity In so gradual a manner tbat there is no violent derangement of the animal economy. By slow drinking the German accomplishes the object of drinking, and gives bis animal economy a chance to say: ’Hold, enough,’ which only slow drinking will do.” The Consul says that he has not seen a glass of water drunk since he has been in Germany, but it must not be inferred from this that bo spends all ofhis time in beer saloons, if the people in tbie coun try were not always in such a hurry they might give the German manner of drink ing a trial. The experience thus gained might justify the starting of a slow drink ing party, that would become a strong rival to the Prohibition party. Acoording to a New York letter the ad vocates of woman suffrage aro playing a new card. They have issued a pamphlet with the names of some fifty well-known lawyers attached, professing to show that there is nothing in the constitution of that State to exclude from voting any person whom it does not expressly designate as excluded. True, the law says: “Every male citizen, 21 years of age, who shall be an inhabitant of the State one year,” etc., etc., but, as nothing is said about the ex clusion of females, if the latter choose to go to the polls, the woman suffragists in sist that that ought to settle the question in the affirmative, and, with this view of the case, they will urge upon all women who are friends of the cause to exercise their right at the election In November next. It' the poll clerks refuse to receive their ballots, then the issue will be transferred to the courts. Among the members of tho bur who stand committed to this opinion are Hiram Barney, Benjamin A. Willis, ex-Senator Cator, of New Jersey, ex-Assemblyman Brooks,. Ethan Allen, Jas. Rldgway, John D. Townsend,Chaun cey Shaffer, Benjamin H. Bayliss, John C. Tomlinson and Prot. Ordronaux. of Co lumbia College. Mr. Hamilton Wilcox, the author of the pamphlet, says; “All shades and classes in the profession are represented in this remarkable paper. Old men and young, modest and dis tinguished, Christians, Jews and Agaos ties, Republicans, Democrats, Mug wumps, Prohibitionists, Greenbnokers and Independents, natives and foreign born, ail join in bolding tbat the woman suffragists are legally correct. Most of the signers represent well known law effi ces. and the list is also notable for the offi cial experience of many of them.” Mr. Randall has been renominated, although in the party in his district there is much dissatisfaction with him. Many of tho Democrats there are not satisfied with his milk and water sort of Dernoo raoy. One of his henchmen is reported to have said in Washington a day or two ago that Mr. Raudall would represent his district in the next Coneres whether he got the Democratic nomination or not, and it is probable that be know exsotly wnat. be was talking about. Mr. Randall cannot very wall be beaten. The Repub licansare wholly satisfied with mm. They would rather have him as their Represen tative than an out-and-out Republican. He can do them morogood in maintaining the present high protective tariff than an v Republican can, because he has a follow ing of Democrats in Congress. These Democrats who always act with the Re publicans whenever the tariff is tho silt*, jeot of legislation, would act with their party to secure a reduction of the tatiff if Mr. Randall were not in the Houso to lead them. He is the obstacle in tho way of tariff nductioa, and in the next Congress he will doubtless be found opposing a reduction ol tariff taxation as vigorously as he ha* oppposed it ever since he entered public life. The Demo crats of bis district who are in fav ir of tariff reform, however, aro growing stronger each year, and iu the Hear future they inav be able to elect a Democrat who sympathy with his party on the tariff issue. That will put an end to Mr. Randall's public career as a Democrat. It IB slated that (ton. Tierce M. B. Young has come home to look after the Austrian mission.

The State hoard's Dilemma. From the St. Louie Republican (Dem.) Massachusetts has a stale Board ot Arbi tration. The Chelsea Rubber Works had a stiike, and the striker* called in the board.

THK ENGLISH STELE OF DKESS. An Amerlon Girt’* Opinion of Her British Sister*' Costume*. From the St. Louie Globe- Democrat. If only the younger Englishmen were guilty of loose Knickerbockers, e aroe stockings and hob-nailed shoes, it might be considered as a youthful folly, but middle-aged, white-haired, bald-headed Britons, men of years and emi nence. grandfathers and celebrities at home, go about Norway in clothes that a servant would despise The Germans and the other peoDle who come in, and the Norwegians themselves, go about dressed as gentlemen in proper clothes, and likewise the Americans, with a very few glaring exceptions of 'hose led astray by bad English company, and who wearthe besgar’seosinmesoleiy because •• t's English, you snow.” I overheard one unter rilled American girl calmly ask a pickea-up acquaintance on a (lord steam r: ** u liv no you Englishmen wear snob sea re crow clothes when you iravel here? You are none of you very pretty In them.” “All these you mean?” growlod ihe youth, spreading out the hands that he always ear ned in his pockets. "Why, these are my shooting togs.” ‘•Well don’t yon wear them to America, or they’d shoot you on sight,” said the flippant miss. "Ah. really! don’t the fellows wear them there?” he asked blandly, aslfthepert Ameri can had not said anything at all out of the way. As this girl evidently had views and was noticing things as she went a’oeg, we planned to get her opinion on the costumes of English women, and she poured out a stream of op n <ins amt illustrative anecdotes: "Oh, yes. they wear their old clothes there, too. My grandmother may remember wh n the cut of them was in style. They all leave their bustles at home, but they bring their silver jewelry. I can tell them a mile off. Aud their feet! Did you ever see anything hke them? And the way their dress skirts Xlftng! Anyone of these English womeu could flraw a crowd on Broadway. They’re always talking, too. about how strictly their young •gells’ are raised, and what models they are for us American girls.

He bought for Armour at Chicago when the house was started here. Now ne buys for Armour’s big Kansas City house. He began with the parent house, and has, one after another, been with each house in the train. He has grown rich in the ser vice. In the early days, when cattle, wore drlvei) east on tbe reads leadiug to Chicago, the herders sent word forward to Milwaukee to Plankinton A Armour that their drivers would be at Waukesha or some other station ab >ut such a day. That gave the cattlemen ihe benefit of two markets. If they could ■trike a bargain at some crossroads with the Milwaukee men, they liked It. If they couldn’t, they pushed on to Chicago. Cole would put $25,000 or $50,000 or SIOO,OOO in bis pockets, and with from ten to twenty helpers intercepted the cattle driver*. There has never been a man In the country who could beat Thomas C'de in judging nogs ami cat tie on the hoof. It Is said that John Plankinton and Sam Allerton are the only men who have ever equalled him. Cole, like old Uncle Dani 1 Drew, did his "Hggeri ng” in his head not on paper. When young Phil Armour first went in with John Plankinton he did all he could to get Tom Cole to keep tab on his rattte purchases. He never made any headtvav The old buver would come back after a trip sometime* with $20,0u0, -ometimes with $50,000, sometimes with SIOO.- 000 worth of hogs and cattle. "Here’syour cattle,” he’d say, "and here’s what’s left of the money.” Then he’d go down in his trousers, in his vest, and his coat. It was Cole’a buying that made the firm rich, and Armour soon gave over as a bad job trying to get the veteran to begin bookkeeping. He kept tab—in his head. He never kept any other tall*. Armour tells how Cole once came back aud said that there was a *I,OOO bill he couldn’t account for. He must have lost it. A month afterward, when everybody hgd forgotten it. Cole felt some thing in the lining of his old jacket. It was the SI,OOO bill. The Big Kwrtttquake of 1808.

The, shocks were followed by a tidal wave, in which the Unitea States storcshlp FredooW was wrecked, with the loss of all hau is, and he United States steamer Wateree and other vessels were carried ashore and stranded. The Waieree. a large iron double-ender, was carried live miles inland, where the hull still remains. The Fredonla was dashed to nieceson the rocks. Another ship, with two ■Dehors down, was lifted oa the wave so that her anchors were clear'of the bottom, and she ihen spun round and round like atop. The only vessels that escaped were the Northern ik ef and another Maine ship commanded ov Capt. Watts, of Rockland. They took a sheer ofl instead of on shore, and, as Capt. Cunning ham describes it. w> t out to sea as though a dozen tugs had them in tow. They were car rled ten or twelve miles out, and received no Injury. The fortified Island of A'acran, which de fends the harbor of Arica, was submerged ihree times, all the garneon perishing. The first wave, whioh rose to aboutforty feet, was -urceeded by three or four others of less height. Among the curious effects of the earthquake in the vicinity of Arica was t.ie opening of the earth and the disclosure of a large number of mummies which had beeu buried in sand in a sitting posture, facing toe sea. in a cemetery covering a large area. Capt. Cunningham, w ho visited the spot, said the hea is sticking up made u look like a field of potatoes. October. From St. .Vichotae. October comes across the hill Like some light ghost, she is so still. Though her sweet cheeks are rosy: And through the floating thistle down Her trailing, brier-tangied gown GleamsUkeu crimson posy. The crickets in the stubbie chime; Lanterns flash out at milking time; The daisy's lost her ruffles; The wasps the honeyed pippins try; A film is Over the blue ssy, A spell the river niufflos. The golden-red fades in the enn; The spider's gauzy veil is spun Athwart the drooping sedges; The nuis drop softly from their burrs; No bird-song the dun silence stirs— A blight is on the hedges. But filled with fair content is the. As if no frost could over be. To dim her brown eyes’ lustre; And much she knows of fairy folk That dance beneath the spreading oak With twinkling mirth and blu.ter. She listens when the dusky eyes Btep softly on the fallen leaves, As if for message cheering; Aud it must be that she can hear, Boyoud November grim and drear, The feet of Christmas nearing. A Lsdf'i Sboiikmg DUcovery Stamkokii, Sept. 20.—The wife of a very wealthy New York merchant had occasion recently to have some trilling repairing done to the setting of her diamond curriers. she is spending the season at her husband's coun try place, near Oreeuwiclt, ami. therefore, took the items to .Jeweler Reynolds. “How much should you sav these diamonds are worth '' she naked Mr. Ifeynolde. He looked at thejn critically a moment, and then replied.that trier might be worth 85. “Kive dollars! Why, rnv hnshnnd paid 81,200 for them at ’ tn New York,” men tioning one of the loading Jewelers In New York. ‘ Then he was cheated,” said Mr. Reynolds la-mlcaliy, “for they arc nothlrg but very well cut crystals.” It w at first thomrht that at some pre vious repairing the rial gems had been ab slracted. and the false ones substituted, but on investigation bv the New Y*rk firm it was found that the otork from whom the jewels wore bought hud know ugly sold the falae dia mond*, and poe'eied the cash. The firm re placed the baubles with genuine **clcs. ITEMS OP INTEREST. A New York physician declares that the oyster is the most wholesome article ol food known to man.

Onk of those coincidences that are so hard to understand is that an nnusually large catch of buffalo fish in the Mississippi river is always followed within a short time by tiie giutt’ng of the market with boneless codflßh. In a grain field near Merced, Cal., the har vester driving wheel struck a boulder, pro ducing sparks which set fire to the slunding gram. About 240 acres of wheat, 550 acres of grass and about 150 acres of stubble were burned.

A Pitts burg man advertised for a cook, and received this note from a citizen of Alleeheney; "Dear Sir: I have seen your advertise ment for a cook for three dav* in the papers. When you get what you want, please send the rest of the girls tome, as I don’t care to advertise.” Henry Irving, in an interview, says that "Faust” has been the greatest success ever bad at the Lyceum. The expenditures for it, however, he says, will hardly fall short of £IO,OOO.

When they hear the loons crying the Pas eamaquoddy Indians think it is a sure sign of a hard wind. If the feathers are thick on the partridges’ lege, or the bears den early, they i eheve a long cold winter is comiug. If they see a beavor carrying a stick a storm is ap proaching. It 13 a sure sign of death to have partridges hovering about the house. If a dog barks in the night a strauger will come the next day. Smokers, students and the progressive world in general ought to read this: "A few years ago I learoed to smoke to oblige a friend. I never liked it. One day I cal'ed a blue color yellow and a red one green. My occupation is one in which ability to distinguish colors is essential. Much alarmed. 1 consulted doctor after doctor in vain. I got worse and worse. One day a medical student, called. By the merest accident. I mentioned my malady. •What do you smoke?’ he asced at once. I told him. "Change your brand,’ said he. I did so aud my color-blindness left me.” The tides at New York Tuesday wore nn uuially high. On tne East river the water reached within eighteen inches of the top of the bulkhead string pieces along South street, and the bowsprits of many of the vessels moored in the slips projected across the street and above the roofs of the old-fashioned houses. A number of storekeepers along the water front that have goods in cellars and hasementseuffered from the overflow. At the ferry houses it was difficult at times to cro- I ark teams with heavy loads, the decks of the tioats being much higher than the street levels. The Smith family was largely represented in the army of the Union, an I at one time there were upward of 600 in the Army of the Potoma", On one of the regimental rolls in ihe Teutonic division which g ive names sod birthplaces, were entered: ’‘Giovanni .Smith’, Italy: Juan Smithas.

The apartmems in which the Iron Chancellor had worked at the mainten ance of the world’s peace bee ime the scene of a stand-up fight among the lair intruders. Evervthing that the Prince c uld no-sib y have touched w*s ccn-idered a good prize; paper clippings, mulls, candle and cigar ends, toothpicks, peoo is, and the primitive porce lain inkstand itself, tome of the most in trepid invaders are said to have penetrated mm his bedroom, and to have triumphantly carried off the soap, soap dishes,and glasses of the washstand. At Kaulcunta, Wis., workmen engaged in excavating a sewer came upon the ruins of a stone building at a depth of eight feet. The stone first found bore traeos of fine workman ship and polish. Further digging developed a quantity of ashes,about twenty-five busheb, which were removed, when a pi her wall was struck. The stones wi re finelv faced, some beingblaekened as if bv fire and smoke; 'tliers must have been subject uto gre.it ar,ill lal heat, a* they had crumbled into fitne. The work was found hut a foot or Iwo above hod rock, hut shows evidences of workmanship that could have been performed only by a highly civilized race. It must hat e been done centuries ago, as a large elm tree hod grown over the ruins. The discovery has led to the advancement of many theories. An intelligent and observant member of a New York theatr cal company says we have no conception here of the host! e feeling which still prevails in Paris towards tl e Ger mans among ail classes of the people, and which manifests itself even on the most trivial occH-ions. Innumerable instances of the kind are re at and, more than confirming ihe statement of Mr. Daly him-elf. t 1 at the i,i natured criticisms of the Arnei lean conipanv in some of the second cia-8 Parisian journals were inspired by no other feeling t bait that of jealousy or envy that they had not made their appearance in the French caoltal before going to Berlin. This unhappy frame of mind, we are told, extends not only to German plays but also to those in wlii h there may be mini chance complimentary mention of o i.fbodv or something pertaining to lha’ nationality. The feeling of reettnrJir, hence, la not a mere sentiment, but a fact. A French .lorRNAt.TST bas counted up the laws passed in France since the Revolution and arrived at the total of about 200,010. From the decree which proclaimed Louis XVI. Urn re storer of French liberty in August, 1730, un til May. 1791, 1.200 acts were passed. Be tween 17113 and the First Umpire there n at a total of 10,572. The laws and decrees on er Louis XVIII. came to 18,653. an average of 2.H72 per year. < buries X wen! beyond this, and with an average of 2 635 every year reached a total of 15,810.

The tot: 1 for ihe Second Empire wa- 45,689, hut Ihe highest average has been reached tinner the present regime, which from Sept. 4. 1870, until the end of last year passed 40,129 laws or decrees. This represents a yearly average of 2,675 The exact total is 190,1 6 ait in ninety-six years, wnhont counting many ministerial de crees and ordinances. Poetic justioe appears to have been dealt out In the case of Emma Bond, the young school teacher of Taylorville. 111., who in 1843 was subjected to such barbarous treatment at the hnnds of several men that she was par tially paralyzed, and for some time lost the senses of taste, smell and bearing. In order to defend hansel/ from the charge of arsauit ing Miss Bond, i ee Pettis, one or the secu-po, borrowed money on a farm, all tho hens to the eetaie joining in the mortgage. The farm is now advertised for sale under foreclosure of mortgage. Montgomery and Clement!, f*i. low-de endants with Pettis, w -re ulso u®i ov etished in attempting to prove their Inno cence.
