FINE "WATCH WORK a specialty, nnd satisfaction guaranteed, ocl S3w CALIFORNIA CANDIDATES FOR CON GRESS. We give below the names of the candidates for Congress in the State of California at the ensuing election. In each case the first named after the Congressional district mentioned is the Republican and the second named is the Democratic candidate: First District T. L. Carothers, Barclay Henley. Second district James A. Louttil, Charles A. Sumner. Third District Joseph M. McKen na, John R. Glasscock. Fourth District W. W. Morrow, R. P. Hastings. Fifth District Charles N; Feltou, Frank J. Sullivan. Sixth District H. H. Markham, R. F. Del-Valle. Henley Sumner and Glascock are present members of Congress. Sum ner, who was beaten in his own dis trict of San Francisco for the nomi nation by Hastings, the somewhat notorious President of the Board of Education, accepted the nomination in the second district in place of Budd. who beat the celebrated H. F. Page at the last election, and who with drew from the canvass on account of ill health. W. W. Morrow has been prominent as Chairman of the Republican State Committee for some time, and re ceived the greatest number of votes at the last election for Congressraan-at-large than any person on the Re publican ticket. Mr. Feltou, better known as Char ley Felton, is a wealthy capitalist, who is largely interested in the pro duction of California petroleum. He has been several times member of the Calfornia Assembly from San Mateo county and prominently men tioned several times in connection with the Governorship of the State. R. F. "Del Valle, the Democratic nominee in the sixth district, is a genuine native Californian of the eld and wealthy stock, who is highly educated and a practicing attorney. He has served several terms in the Assembly, and was at the last session elected President pro tern, of the Senate. During his first term in that body. Tlie Fooehow Arsennl. The following description of the Arsenal at Fooehow, China, destroyed by the French on the 23rd of August, is taken from the Hongkong Daily Press : The construction of the Arsenal was commenced in 1867, and completed in 1874. The work was designed by and carried out in its entirety under the sole direction of M. Giquel. What the French guns have destroyed was in fact entirely he creation of a French brain. M. Giquel was in the Customs service when he un dertook the establishment of the Arsenal. Before entering the Customs service he was, we believe, in the French Navy. At all events he proved himself well-fitted for the task he entered on. The establish ment was called an Arsenal, but it was in reality merely a shipbuilding and repair ing yard, and had nothing to do with the manufacture of the armament of the ships it turned out. M. Giquel promised the Chinese that natives should there thor oughly learn how to build, engine and navigate steamships without foreign assist ance, and there were accordingly schools of navigation and naval construction at tached to the establishment, the students in which were, to a large extent, drawn from the Central School at Hongkong. The writer had the opportunity of going through the works some five years ago in company with one of the European gen tlemen at that time engaged there, and was much struck with the complete ness of all the arrangements alike in the foundry rolling mill, fitting shop, carpen ter's shop, and all other branches. There were several steam-hammers, and forgings of the largest description could be carried out. The works were entirely self-contained, and practically no manufactured material whatever was brought within its gates for the jurpose of being worked up at least nothing in a more advanced stage of manufacture than pig-iron. From the keel upwards the ship was absolutely made in the yard ; her anchors wrere forged there, her machinery made, and all her fittings put in. The arsenal even made many of its own tools, and on the occasion of the visit referred to men were seen at work on files and saws. At that time there was on the stocks a transport of 1500 tons, but work generally seemed to be rather slack. The establishment, in fact, was working at very much below full power, and there was a general air of stagnation. From casual remarks made here and there an inference might be gathered that there was a hitch somewhere probably funds were short. It has always been a tremendous drain on the provincial exchequer, and it is extremely doubtful whether it will be rebuilt ; at least on the same gigantic scale. The works were much larger than there was any necessity for, and taking into account the interest on capital sunk the ships turned out cost much more than they could have been bought for else where. In 1879 the works were entirely under Chinese direction, with two Eu ropeans at the head of departments and one in the office. Since then the Euro pean heads of departments seem to have been dispensed with. M. Giquel is still returned at the Director, but he has been absent in France for a goo.i many years. The number of men employed was about 1,500. Everything was on a French model, and most of the workmen picked up a little of that language. A very interesting feature in connection with the arsenal was the slip on which vessels were taken up for repairs. This was of a kind of which the writer was told there was only one other in existence, and that in France. Instead of the ves sel being hauled up end on, a platform was lowered beneath her as she lay broad side to, and the whole was then raised by an arrangement of powerful screws. It was a very ingenious contrivance, and likewise very costly, as well as being ex pensive to keep up. As above mentioned, attached to the arsenal were two schools, one for naval construction and the other for n:ivio;itiou. The former was under French masters and the latter under English masters. At tached to the naval construction school was a very extensive labarotory. At the time of the writer's visit there were j thirty-eight pupils in each of the ivv branches. The ordinary number was said to be about sixty, but several batches had recently left for practical instruction and were cruising off Formosa. The pupils were boarded at the school and were kept under strict discipline. Xew Vertiele Water-Tube Boiler. From the Mechanical World and Steam Users' Journal. The great fault of vertiele boilers is their lack of regular ebullition. Steam escapes from their furnace crowns in large babbles, which in rising from the water carry up a considerable quantity of water,' and the supply of steam is therefore often very wet. "We have recently made an inspection of a vertiele boiler in which this fault appears to have been thoroughly overcome, with at the same time an in crease of efficiency, and the improvement may be applied to any existing boiler of suitable type. -The improvement consists in the application of a number of U tubes to the crown of the firebox, which project well down towards the grate. These tubes, which may be from lin. to 2 in. or even more, in diameter, and of length suited to the height of the furnance, are beaded into the firebox crown sheet in the ordinary manner, but into one leg of the U a ferrule is driven, having a ;closed top but a lateral opening. This ferrule lengthening one leg of the tube, causes, when heat is applied, a continuous circu lation through the tube, and the water is ejected laterally from the ferrule, parting freely with its contained steam, and its place is supplied by the entry of other water at the shorter leg. We have tested these tubes and found that when circula tion is stopped by a large addition of cold water, it very quickly re-establishes it self, and "before many seconds is again quite steady and continuous, and it appeared to make no material difference whether the opening in the ferrule was above or below water. The addition of the tubes adds largely to the heating sur face of the boiler, and this, too, of a very efficient sort; and the rapidity of circula tion fs so great that it appears question able whether any dirt or scale can accu mulate in the tubes. A baffler of fire clay is added to force the heated gases amongst the tubes, instead of allowing their free uninterrupted passage to the funnel. The device appears calculated to be of good service, and will we believe, bo found -to give good results. The dimen sions of one of the boilers are as follows: Height, 3ft. Sin. with ashpit; diameter, 2ft. 2in; number of tubes 17, each 12in. long; total heating surface, 27 square ft. This boiler drives a launch 26ft longx 6ft. beam and 3 feet deep, the engines having a single cylinder, 5in. diameter x 6in. stroke, and running at 200 revolutions. Another steam launch 40ft. long, has a boiler 2ft. 6in. diameter and 5ft. high, and this boiler has 23 tubes, and a total heat ing surface of 47ft., and supplies an en gine with three cylinders, each Gin. dia meter and Sin. stroke. From cold water steam at 601b. was raised in thirty minutes after lighting up, and boilers can be con structed to raise "steam to 10001b. in 10 minutes by modification in their capacity for water. Boilers for engine 'purposes can be constructed to raise steam to 1001b. pressure in 12 minutes. limine letllcree. Van Cleve Phillips of St. Louis, who is a noted genealogist says: c,In 'Burke's Peerage of the British Isles' the Blaines can be traced back to Griffifth of Tynam, King of North Wales, A. D. 1097; derived from Anarawd, King of North Wales, eld est son of Itodri Mawr, King of Wales, A. D. 813, founder of the first Boy al Tribe; arms, three red lions, peasant (standing); from this house decended Owen Gwyn nedd, eldest son of Griffifth, who boro on his shield three eagles; his son, Owen Gwynned, A. D. 1272, Prince of North Wales, had his shield quartered and bore four lions; the second son of llodri Mawr, Bing of South Wales, founded the Second Boyal Tribe, and boro a lionVampant, within a bordure; the descendents of the third son llodri Mawr, A. D. 104G, found ed the Third Royal Tribe, from whom de scended Mado, Prince of Powys Fadog; the eldest son of Madoc was the proge nitor of Owen Glendower, whose progeny was Prince of Ferlys, the country between the Wye and Severn; this house founded the Fourth Boyal Tribe, and had three boars' heads, quartered with two lions, on his siujIJ. It is from this house that tlie Blaynes derive their arms, which are three boars' heads, quartered with lions, raiupant and regu aidant; crest, a fox, peasant; motto: Non 2fobi8 Solu?n. Tii'- descent of the Blaines is given in Blayue or Blaine (Keynshaiu, county Hereford ; derived from Howell Blayner of Heyop, county f llednor, ap Meirig, ap Griffith, ap Cad wgau, ap Madoc, ap Hoeid lew Goch, ap Cadwgan, ap Elysian Glo drjdd, Prince of Ferleys.) Arms : First and fourth av., three boars' heads coupled sa. armed gu. ; second and third, a lion rampant (red), reguardant (looking behind). The Romans, when England was over run by the Saxons (600 b. c), were driven into the mountains of Wales, where they fortified themselves and were an indepen dent nation for 800 years, and founded the four royal and fif teen noble tribes o Wales. From this Roman stock James G. Blaine, the Republican candidate, de scended, as shown by the English heralds, the book being published under the au thority of Queen Victoria, and where all the dukes, barons, and earls of the Brit ish Isles have their descendants recorded. The Labor Trafiie in tlie lacifie. Baron Miklouho Maclay, the Rus sian naturalist, in a letter addressed to the Aborigines Protection Society on April 17, after reciting recent cases in which persons accused of grave crimes in connection with the Polynesian labor traffic had been ac quitted, says: "This perfect immu nity from punishment induces the white men to think nothing of taking the life of natives, and men are killed or wounded for stealing a few pieces of tobacco, as was the case with a skipper at Dufauro Island, Orangerie Bay, south coast of New Guinea, in February last. For the few pieces of tobacco stolen by some natives the skipper shot one man through the chest, the bullet passing out at his back; the second bullet went through another's head; and the third went through the limb of another. The liev. Mr. Gill fears that such attacks will lead to reprisals on innocent men. It is, I think, only too natural that the natives should revenge them selves upon the whites when they find a chance." English Paper. The History of a Kiss. "Johnnie," said a girl to her bashful companion, as they occupied remote ends of the sofa the other night, "I see that a lady in New Jersey, 104 years old, boasts of having been kissed by Washington." 'Yes,'' said Johnnie, "I saw it too." "Suppose you were to become a great man like Washington?" "Well," said Johnnie. "And I were to live to be 101 years old? " "Well?" said Johnnie. "I couldn't say of you what the old lady said of Washington, could I?" Then he kissed her. JExchanye.
