'She Jrgup Convention.
A convention of the Naval Store* Man.
ufacturers’ Protective Association will
I meet at Jesup to-day. it is expected
j that several matters of vital interest to
| the naval stores manufacturers will bo
j discussed. The association proposes to
present to the Legislature at it summer
I session a bill, the purpose of which is to
| nffutdy several evils of which the rn&mi
j facturers complain. The loading fea
| tures of the bill w ill be submitted to tho
j convention to-day lor its consideration.
! One of the objects of the bill is to crevant
the practice of “horning,” which was
thoroughly explal nod and condemned by
the Morning News a year cr
so ago. The bill has other
objeots of more or less importance,
which, doubtless, will receive careful
attention. It the manufacturers ate
laboring under burdens which they outrh t
not to bear they should have relief, and
the Legislature can be depended upon to
give them a patient hearing and to do
what is right to all parties odneerned.
'The motors claim that they are dealing
fairly and honestly with the manufac
turers. This the manufacturers deny—
that is, so lar as the majority of the fac
tors are concerned. Now, would it not
be advisable for the manufacturers,
at the Jesup convention, to preseut
briefly and clearly their charges
against the tactors ol whom they
complain, showing exactly how they are
injured by the practices which they con
demn? Tu this bill of indictment let the
factors make an answer. If they refuse
to answer the public will be at liberty to
interpret their refusal as a confession. If
tbev auswer the issue will be made up,
and the members of the Legislature will
have It before them to consider before
they meet in July. What is wanted is
the exact truth, and when that is lound
out it will not be long before justice is
The association says that there are
factors in this city against whom the
mauulacturers have no complaint to
make. It is to be presumed, therefore,
that they are guilty of none of the
practices which the manufacturers re
gard as objectionably. They are cap
able of handling all the busi
ness intrusted to them. What the
public would like to know, therefore, is,
why do not the manufacturers deal ex
clusively with them? By doing so would
they not bring about the reforms w hich
the Naval Stores Manufacturers’ l’rotec
tlve Association is seeking to effect? By
dealing with factors whom they claim
aro guilty ot dishonest practices when
there are responsible factors whom they
admit are conspicuous for fair dealing,
the manufacturers give ground for sus
picion that they are aiming at something
which they are keeping in the back
'I lie Frequency of Suicides.
The senior Weller’s advloe to his son
Nam was perhaps never heard of by Mr.
Joseph Montfort, of Port Washington,
N . Y., or he might have avoided compli
cations which led him to commit a rash
Mr. Montfort loved Mrs. Jones, a widow,
two years his senior. He obtained her
consent to marry him and the wedding
day was fixed. Everybody in Port Wash
ington was interested in the approaching
event, and when the dav and hour ar
rived the village church was crowded
with eager spectators from the chancel
rail to the doors. But Mr. Montlort and
Mrs. Jones tailed to appear. The people
in the church became tired of waiting,
and a committee was appointed to seek
the missing groom and his bride. 'The
latter was lound in tears at her home,
but there was no trace of the former.
The committee, which seems to have
been determined to do its whole duty, set
about finding an explanation for Mr.
Montfort’s strange disappearance. A
few hours' patient labor developed that
while be was engaged to Mrs. Jones, Mr.
Montfort met another widow and a mu
tual attachment was the result. He paid
devoted attention to the second widow,
and when the first complained because
he did not viait her as frequently as for
merly, he explained that bad weather
k pt him at home. In Uio meantime Mr.
Montfort was sorely troubled. He could
not marry both the widows, aud he was
afraid tunt the jilted one would sue turn
for breach of promise. He waited until
the day fixod for his union with Mrs.
Jones and then he committed suicide.
Mr. Montfort is said to have been a
man of good sense, but it is difficult to
believe that he was. A man of good
sense would not have promised to marry
two women at the same time, especially
when both were widows, nor would he
S have committed suicide in order to escape
! bis dilemma. But the oase is mentioned
I m order to call attention to the frequency
i of suicides. Some time ago the Morn
ing News mentioned that three had oc
curred in one dav, but during the last
week in March twenty-five were reported
in the Eastern states alone. In nearly
every ease the apparent cause was quite
as foolish as that which led Mr. Montfort
to take his life. It would be Interesting
to know how those wno insist that the
world is growing better account for the
frequency of suicides.

Marriage as a Business.
Jt Is on rctord that women are mere
successful in fraud than men. This,
Irha| s. is due to the superior tact of
women, or It aiay be due to toe suscepti
bility 01 men. At any rate, women who
make a business of swindling will take
risks sncl engage tn adventures of which
men engaged in & similar business rarely
evoi dream.
Just now i’ari* is amused by the ex
posure of an adventuress who claims the
United States as the place of her nativity.
Her name it I.sal, and she is desoribed as
a very pretty brunette, tall, and grace
fully formed. It seems that iiiss I.eal
and a 31 me. Deuiortler started a marriage
Rgeiicy in I’aris two years ago. Their
plan was to advertise that a young lady
oi large fortune desired a husband with
out fortune. Of course there were plenty
of fools ready to take the bait, and the re
sult w as that “the young lady of fortune”
was besieged with suitors. 3liss
Leal played the part of “the
young lady of fortune,” and
>lme. Demortier the part of her mother.
Kach suitor was introduced to Miss Leal,
and, after a short acquaintance, lime.
Demortier would suggest to him that he
ought to present the timid maiden with a
few oieoes ol jewelry as an evidence of
affection. The jewelry was forthcoming
in every instance, and Miss L“a) was so
charmed that she engaged herself to fifty
suitors at one time. In some cases she
went so far as to marry suitors wuo were
especially attentive, but she took caro
to have the ceremony, or ceremonies,per
formed in England. That she and Mine.
Demortier reaped a valuable harvest
goes w ithout saying. In the course of the
two years they accumulated jewelry
enough to stock a store.
Miss Leal’s exposure was brought about
by taking a third party into her confi
dence. She decided that she wanted an
“aunt” as w r ell as a “mother.”
The “aunt” was employed to
act as the medium of introduction
between Miss Leal and her numerous
suitors, while Mine. Demortier continued
to act as the protecting—and suggesting
—mother. One night the “aunt” under
took to point out Miss Leal to five differ
ent suitors at one of the I’arts theatres.
She failed to keep the suitors apart from
each other, and the result was they be
came aware that they were beiug made
the victims of a iraud. One, whose heart
was hard, had 3liss Leal arrested.
Mine. Demortier and the “aunt”
managed to escape. Thirty-five wit
nesses wore induced to appear against
Miss Leal, and she was convicted ot be
ing a common cheat and was sentenced
to four months’ imprisonment. Her suit
ors are poorer but wiser men.
Sherman Cornered.
It Is stated in a dispatch from Harris
burg, I’a., that the late Gen. John A.
Logan’s new book, entitled “The Volun
teer Soldier of America,” soon to be pub
lished, will not onlv cause a sensation in
military circles but will also put Gen.
Sherman in a very unpleasant position.
One of the features of the book is the
glorification of the volunteer soldiers in
the late war at tbe expense of the regu
lars, and, it is alleged, the regulars will
find much in it which is not at all com
plimentary to them.
Through talking and writing too much
Gen. Sherman manages to keep himself in
trouble pretty much all the time. While
he was preparing his memoirs he kept up
a very iriendly correspondence with Gen.
Logau, in which he expressed the high
est admiration for the latter’s soldierly
qualities and military services. Logau
expected that he would receive in the
memoirs the attention which his record
as a soldier merited. He was somewhat
disappointed when the memoirs
were published to find that
his military achievements were
spoken ol somewhat slightingly. Sher
man, it is claimed, after the publication
of his book, noticing the unfavorable com
ments on his unjust treatment of Gen.
Logan, and knowing that in his corre
spondence with the latter he had ex
pressed an entirely different opinion, and
fearing that tbe correspondence between
them would be published, ho begged Gon.
Logan to keep tbe correspondence a
secret He even wanted the letters.
Gen. I.ouah promised not to publish the
letters during his lifetime, but lie refused
to permit them to pass out of his keeping.
Mrs. Logan, it seems, conoluded to pub
lish them, and the sud spectacle, it is
alleged, w ill he presented of Gen. Sher
man’s conviction ol “willful fabrication
and duplicity.” An effort has been made
to keep these letters out of print within
tbe last few days, but without success.
Gen. Suerman will have to face the music,
and it promises not to be very pleasant
music either.
The American Sunday School Union is
doing a good work, its aim is to organize
a Sunday school in every community
where tbere is none; to publish and cir
culate moral and religious literature; to
assist in the improvement of existing
schools and to donate Bibles and Testa
ments In needy oases. It does not wish
to influence any in their church relations
but simply to uuite all the people
iu the study of the word of God. it
was organized in 1824, and its influonoo
and strength has steadily increased ever
since. The Georgia agent of the Union
is Thomas W. DimmocK, ot Carrollton,

If the custom of calling tbe wives of
government employes by the titles of
their husbands Is to become general,
there ought to be no objeotlou to giving
titles to the wives of all other men. The
charming nature of the custom may be
understood from the samples that follow :
“Mrs. Canal Driver Jones,” “Mrs. Fruit
Btand Keeper O'Klannigan,” “Mrs. Organ
Grinder Smith,” “Mrs. Well DiggerSnow
bull,” “Mrs. Street Sweeper Sullies.”

that be will touch the marker even higher

A Scene That Conid Not Have Been
Pleasant to One of the Actors.
From the Keeo York Tribune,
The upstart nobility of Russia is not held in
high esteem by the oid families with ances
tors. It is said of Suwaroff, the great cam
paigner, that ne once ••took down” one of
these mushroom counts in a way that ha# be
come a tradition at St. Petersburg. Tile Gen
eral had letured from a victorious campaign
and received the congratulai ions of the Czar
through Count Kutaissoff, who had been the
body-servant of the Gran i Ituke Paul, and at
the crowning of his master had been made a
count, su waroff reoeived his vißitor hospita
bly, and pleaded the lading memory of an
old man as his excuse lor not recailiug his
family name. “I suppose the Kutaissoff
fought against the enemies of Russia and so
earned their title,” he said in an apologetic
way. The Count owned that he had never
been a soldier.
• Then, doubtless, you have filled some im
portant foreign mission?”
“Never, your highness.”
“Or been in the Council?”
"Nor tnat either.”
“Then permit me to ask. Count, what dis
tiuguised ottice you have tilled?”
•*1 had the honor to be the body servant of
his majesty,” was the embarrassed reply.
“Oh! ah! my very honorable Count, very!”
and the old Geueral rang for Ills servant.
“Troschka, you hog!” he said when he ap
peared, "how often nave I told you to stop
your drinking ami stealing, and to no pur
pose. Now just look at this gentleman. He
was a menial tike you, but lie didn’t drink
nor steal, and now he is master of the Czar's
stabies and a Count into the bargain See
now what a chance fools like you have got, if
you half try.”
The Bones of 2.000 Mongolians Await
ing Shipment.
From the Chicago Tribune.
San Francisco, Cal., April 3.—To-day was
one of the three great festivals in the year
when the Chinese go out to Point Lebos Cem
etery and feast the souls of their departed.
From 7 o’clock in the morning until nooa
there were thousands of Mongolians placing
meatofferings on the graves and burning
joss-sticks and firecrackers. The procession
of hacks and wagons numbered about (500, and
the debris left on the ground atier the affair
was over resulted in a wholesale gathering of
tramps and dogs for a moonlight
Chinese dinner. The white super
intendent of the Mongolian burial
ground estimates that the paeu of corpses for
shipment back to China will exceed 3,000
for the season, and all the exhumations will
have to ho performed under government
supervision before removal irum the cemetery
will oe allowed. The corpses must have been
under the ground for two years, and then
they are not allowed iu the oity limits unless
hermetically packed. There is not the
sligluest indication of the Chinese giving up
this custom of shipping back their oead to
China, and, except witu converts to Chriß
tlaniiv, the rule is always followed. It is a
very costly custom, and the imposts on it are
increasing, but these are met with indif
ference by the rich Chinese corporations who
undertake the matter.

A submarine tunnel is being built under
the river at Port Huron to shorten the dis

to. The work is now ready for the horizon
tal excavation, which will be one mi e in
length, including 2,310 feet in the submarine
section. The latter in its lowest part will Oe
61 feet below the surface of the river, and
will have a diameter of 2‘i feet in the clear.
It was at first proposed to construct a two
track tunnel, but careful estimates of the
cost were given, showing that the two single
track tunnels could be built cheaper than one
double-track tunnel.

Sfkaking of Doorkeeper Bassett’s post
ponement of the end of the Senate’s final ses
sion by turning back the hands of the clock,
the Manob Chunk Democrat remembers that
Thaddeus Steveus received his first nomina
tion lor Congress by the same device, only the
clock was hurried up instead of being kept
back It happened in the Summer of 1848,ip
East Lampeter township, Lancaster coun y
at the public house or Daniel Miller, during
a Whig delegate election. The bunds of an
old-fashioned bouse clock were privately
moved forward twenty minutes—from 5:Su to
10 minutes before op. m. That move closed
the polls twenty minuies before the regular
time and five voters were ruled out by the
clock as It then stood—ten minutes past 8. It
wos ihe turning point in that township. Had
the clock not been moved A. Herr Smith, not
Stevens, would have been the uomluee.
We are told of a strange clock that is said
to have belonged to a Hindoo prince. A
large gong was hung on poles near the dial,
and all about uporylie ground lay a pile of
ariitioial human treads, ribs, legs and arms.
The whole number of bones iu the pile was
equal I o the number of hones iu twelve per
fect bodies, but the pile appeared to have
been thrown together iu the greatest contu
sion. When the hands of the clock Indicated
thehourof l.out from the pile crawled liri
the numherof pans needed to form the frame
of one man, p. rt coining to part wub quick
click, and, when cotiiple od, the figure sprang
up, seized a uia let, and, walkmg up to ihe
gong, struck one blow This and ne, he re
lumed lo the pile and fell to pieces again.
When 2 o’clock came two arose and did like
wise; and at tho hours of noon and midnight
the entire heap sprang up, and. marching to
the gong, struck one alior anotner his Mow,
making twelve in all, then returniug fell to
pieces as before.
