A POINT FOR THE SAILOR.
Judge Simonton in the United States
court at Charleston, South Carolina, has
stepped out of the beaten track of admiral
ty practice. It has been the custom for
foreign sailors to bring libels against for
eign vessels in our ports in the United
States courts, and our courts have always
assumed jurisdiction over such cases. It
has, however, been customary for the
judges to waive this jurisdiction and hand
these cases over to the consul of the nation
under whose flag the libeled vessel sailed
for trial, and the consnlar verdict was
usually allowed to stand. '
Judge Simonton does not think that this
custom is based on good law. He affirms
the jurisdiction of our admiralty courts
over all such cases and the right of the
judge nnder ordinary circumstances to
delegate this jurisdiction; bnt he fur
ther holds that there are circum
stances nnder which the transfer of
jurisdiction cannot be made. Jurisdiction
cannot be surrendered in libel cases of a
seaman against a vessel when the interests
of the libellant will suffer by that surren
der. "When the circumstances of the
case are such," says the judge, "as de
mand immediate investigation, or when
the seaman, discharged from the ship,
would be put at a disadvantage were she
suffered to depart, or whenshe has depart
ed he would be compelled to search the
world for her, the court will proceed and
decide the case against the wish, and at
times against the protest of the foreign
This is good for the poor sailor, and as
he has not had too much justice this de
cision will help make things a little more
even for him.

A plan for the reorganization - of the
Swedish army has just been laid before
the Swedish parliament. It proposes the
universal liability to service as under
stood in its widest sense every one able
to bear arms must serve. Eighteen thous
and men are required by it annually to en
list for ten and a half months.- After the
full year's service every soldier would be
called out to camp for forty-five days
every year. The plan has been submitted
to a commission composed of the highest
officers in the Swedish army.

about March 1. Thence they will proceed
across the continent by special train,
stopping off at Salt Lake City, Denver,
Chicago, Niagara Falls and New York.
On their arrival at - New York the party
will find a Russian fleet in waiting. A
stop of but a few days will be made in
that city. From New York the Czaro
witz goes direct to St. Petersburg. The
Grand Dnke Nicholas is but twenty-four

with the view of instruction, by trusted
officers of the Russian army.
Mr. Johnson Sides, the Piute'Vho was
accused of being the "Indian Messiah,"
says the aconsation is unfounded. He
says: This whole story was begun by a
Piute over in Mason valley they call Jack
Wilson. Everybody knows him, and he
was raised there. He's about 40 years old
and his Piute name is "We-vo-cah," but
he says God calls him "Po-he-djow," and
now he is God's son. He tells everybody
he got sick and died two years ago last
winter, and God made him alive and said
he muBt preach to the Indians, and so he
does ever since. He tells 'em that all
what's dead will come to life again and get
all their country back, and the whites
will have to leave, so they'll be better off
then they ever was before, with plenty of
game and whatever they wants. He says
the Indians must come out and see .him
every three monts, and lots of 'em do.
Captain Sam is one that believes in him,
and he goes over there regular been there

WOLVES AND LAMBS.
Speculating Railroad Officials.
From the Chicago Herald.
Nearly all railroad officials speculate in
stocks more or less, and almost all who do
are the easiest shorn lambs who dabble in
Wall street. There are two classes of rail
road officials who are known in Wall
street. One class comprises presidents
and directors, who are on the inside.
These men usually know what they are
about, and almost always make money.
The other class is composed of subordinate
officials. They know nothing about the
financial management of the roads, and
are lambs of softest fleece. The first class
operates to make millions, is in instant
communication with Wall street and the
financial backers of the roads, and sells
short as readily as it sells long. It is al
temately bull and bear on the values of
tne securities of tne corporations it repre
sents. The lambs speculate on the pros
pects of an advance. They see a heavy
tonnage passing over the road, great crops
being gathered, -find know what rates are
twins' received for transportation. From
sucn causes as tnese tney reason out an in
crease or decrease in net earnings. They
know that tne legitimate effect of an in
crease in net earnings would be to advance
the value of the-stock, .but they do not
know what the policy of wall street may
be. To the credit osMhe lambs it should
be said that they are rarely found selling
tne stocks of their own roads snort.
In the late Wall street manipulation
party of eight Chicago railroad officials
were shorn of a round $47,850. They in
cluded representatives of four roads and
had inside information that the earnings
of tne wortnern r'acino for Uotober were
the largest for any month in the history
of the road. Northern Pacific was selling
cneap ana Tney rormea a pool to buy.
Theoretically they were rieht, for North
ern Pacific is paying about four per cent.
on its preferred stock and the road is car
rying every pound of traffic it has the fa
cilities to handle. But theories did not
pan out. In the storm that swept through
Wall street Northern Pacific was swept
out of sight, and the margins of the pool
kept company with the stock. It is a rule
on all Yanderbilt roads that no one con
nected with them shall speculate in stocks
or manrins. This rule was laid down by
Commodore Vanderbilt, and no excuse is
taken for its violation. The offender is
invariably peremptorily discharged. Of
course this law does not apply to members
of the Vanderbilt family. . but they lone
ago passed out of the speculative stock
market, and do not operate to any extent
on margins. Jay Gould's railroad officials
are not much given to stock speculation
although some of them occasionally take
a layer. As a rule the. officers of the
Gould roads are the best paid, beat cared
1 lor rauroau omciaia - in ' tne oountry,
While they are held to a strict accounta
bility with an iron hand, they know that
Jay Gould, more than any other railroad
owner In the United States, appreciates
faithful work in his interest, but woe be
tide the man who betrays Mm, for he has
a long memory. Gould discourages stock
speculations by his employes, and it is re
lated that once upon finding that his con
fidential Moriaini was taking secret advan
tage of knowledge picked nn in hia offim
Gould put up a job which cost Moriaini
every cent he had in the world. Then
Gould told him that he would let him in
occasionally, and did it so well that Mori
sini has made millions. What Gould dis
liked in that case was Moriaini using pri
vate information without permission.
Most of the railroad officials in the west
who had any money up in Wall street last
month now regret that they played with
the cyclone market. There is, however,
one railroad president who has made a for
tune which runs into millions. James J.
Hill, pieaddent of the Great Northern rail
way, is already worth fifteen to twenty
millions. He has risen by bold strokes
which throw the wildest dreams of ro
mance in the shade, and would amaze the
late and much-esteemed Jim Fisk. Mr.
Hill, who is known to several millions of
people as plain "Jim," is a believer in the
doctrine of keeping on hand large amounts
of ready cash, something which is also
practiced by Russell Sage. Recently
'Jim" Hill negotiated a loan of thirty
million dollars in cash for bis company to
be used to complete its line from Montana
to Paget Sound. Most of this money had
been paid over when the storm struck
Wall street and was in deposit in the east
ern banks. Mr. Hill promptly released
this surplus on good security, at whatever
the ruling rate of interest was, and made
a nice pile of shining dollars. He also
picked up a few shares of dividend-paying
... 1 V- - L . . .
dhku vtuiuu were selling ior tne price
that is asked for nice shaving paper with
fluted edges. Altogether Mr. Hill is cred
ited with having scooped in about three to
nve million dollars and to have won the
friendship of Jay Gould by materially aid
ing that gentleman in his manipulation of
the market. "Jim" Hill is just now en
gaged in another speculation which is
proving profitable to the Great Northern
railway as well as himself. The recent
stringency of the money- market compelled
the banks of the northwest to refuse to
carry the great grain buyers. As stated
before, "Jim" Hill is the gentleman who
carries plenty of ready cash in his vaults.
in this emergency he stepped to the front
and told the grain buyers that he would
advance all the money necessary to move
the wheat crop at a reasonable interest,
provided all their shipments should be
consigned by the Great Northern to the
head of Lake Supei ior or Minneapolis and
then put in his elevators. 1ms oner was
eagerly accepted, and as a result grain is
being teamed in some instances from points
six miles from competing roads distances
of from twelve to twenty miles to reach
Jim" mil s ureat Northern railroad.
One of the greatest chances to make
money id stock speculation nas been in
Illinois Central. A few days before the
annual meeting this stock was at a heavy
premium. The day of the annus! meeting
it fell below par. Since then its value has
fluctuated between ninety-five and par.
Saturday it closed at ninety-seven and one
half. When Illinois Central started to
slump it fell off in chunks of two to four
cents. Yet no one in Chicago was paring
any attention to it, and one of the largest
brokerage officers in the city has handled
less than three thousand abar since Oc
tober 1. When W. K. Ackennan was
president of the Illinois Central a raid
was started on the company s stock by a
lot of Wall street speculators. There was
no earthly cause for the rai 1 except specu
lation, and President Ackerman coolly
said: "111 teach 'em." tie poured in
buying orders and made the speculators
that were raiding bis company so weary
that this class of people steered clear of
Illinois Central for many a year after.
Among the railroad lambs of Chicago
there are both bulls and bears. Since Jay
Gould made his latest coup be has gained
wonderfully in importance even for so in
fluential an old gentleman. Among the
bulls he is referred to as the coming lead
er as the Moses who is to gather the scat
tered and warring railroad corporations
and lead them out of the desert into the
land of plenty. When this theory was
preached by a well-known general freight
agent an equally well-known official con
nected with the passenger department of a
western road remarked with a sarcastic in
flection of his tenor voice: "That is the
trouble. Mr. Gould is a Moses, and, like
Moses, he will strike a rock which will
bring forth tons of water."
An Intcreallng; Game for Children lo
Be Played With a Woolen Ball.
From Table Talk
One of the prettiest little games for
children is called the "wool ball." The
children are seated around a perfectly
smooth topped table. A little raw wool is
formed into a light ball and placed in the
center of the table. The children then
commence to blow toward it, each one try
ing to drive it from him and off the table
if possible: and the child who allows it to
pass his right side and fall on the floor is
excused from the table, and stands in a
line by the wall. Each one who allows the
ball to pass by and fall on the floor retires
in line. The longer the ball is is kept on
the table, every one blowing as hard as
possible, the more abusing the game be
comes. The "giantess" also furnishes considera
ble amusement at a children's party. A
tall young man should be dressed in a long
skirt, then au umbrella should have a
cloak buttoned around it, first having ar
ranged on top a ball the size of an ordina
ry head, with a hat or bonnet and a black
veil over what should be the face. As the
cloak is buttoned around the head it gives
a very good appearance, lhe bead must
be well fastened to the point of the um
brella, so that when the giantess bows
there will not be the slightest danger of
her losing her head. The umbrella is par
tially opened, so that tne ribs will spread
ont the cloak. The young man, of course,
gets under it, holding the handle as high
as possible, thus appearing like a perfect
ly enormous woman. The children are
now all In tne parlor; a knock is neara at
the door, some one opens it, announces
and introduces to the children "Miss Lit
tlefield." The giantess then walks into
the room and bows to the children; and if
the giantess then opens and closes the
umbrella slowly it gives the most comical
appearance. He may then begin, in an
unnatural voice, to converse with the chil
dren, telling them interesting stories and
describing to them his beautiful home.
Let these stories be beautiful in their
character, mild, interesting and soothing
to the children.

Minister at n Poor Appointment.
(From the New York HeraM.
One of the clergyman in the New York
conference of the Methodist Episcopal
church tells this story about himself:
"When I was the pastor of a small
church in Delaware county, this state, I
had a hard time in trying to keep soul and
body together. My labors were arduous
and the salary only $400 a year, and if we
had not received various donations of pro.
visions from parishioners almost equally
poor as ourselves, we would in all proba
bility have starved to death.
"It ia what is known as a 'backwoods
appointment,' being eighteen miles from a
railroad, and located in a valley created
by thickly wooded hills. To give you an
idea of onr reduced circumstance, I am
compelled to any that there was bnt one
white shirt in the house, and that was
shared in common by my eldest son and
myself. When ha wore it I went into the
pulpit without one, and made up for the
deficiency the best I could.
"One Sunday we had the presiding
elder of the' district with u. He had
come the previous night. Early in the
morning he was disturbed br this ques
" 'Father, father, who wears the shirt
to-day, vou or mef
"Well, I was in doubt who was entitled
to incase himself in that useful garment on
that occasion, bnt in a spirit of aelf-aacri-fice,
I shonted from the confines of my
room: 'I think it's your turn, my boy."
"I thought no more about the matter
until after breakfast and family prayers
were over: then the elder took me aside
and asked if there was only one white
shirt in the house. Of course it was an
embarrassing question, and I tried to
evade making a reply, but he was persist
ent, and I Anally was forced to admit the
truth. Tears welled up in the elder's
eyes, and he offered to part with some of
his meager hoard of money, but I assured
him that I did not need it, and as I refused
absolutely to accept a cent he did not press
the matter further.
"Still, although the elder was a kind
hearted man and received but little more
salary than myself, yet he loved to indulge
in practical jokes. On another occasion
he accepted an invitation to dine with us
and my wife, who always seemed to stand
in awe of the big, dignified elder, made an
extra effort to prepare tempting repast.
Oysters were scarce and very high in that
section and consequently a luxury, but my
wife concluded that for once we should
-"Well, thanks to recent wedding fees,
she was able to buy them. Then she exer
cised all her .ingenuity to place them on
the table in every conceivable form that
would please the eye and gratify the taste.
"Well, when we sat down to the table
we saw oysters, stewed, oysters fried, oys
ters roasted and oysters on the shell. It
was literally a wilderness of oysters.
"Ontside of oysters there was, in fact,
but little to eat except bread, butter, ap
ple ssnce, and, I believe, some sage cheese.
Still the little woman sat with a beaming
countenance, eagerly anticipating the el
der's delight at the unexpected treat.
"After a blessing had been invoked I, as
a matter of form, turned to onr guest and
" 'Elder, will you permit me to help you
to some of the oysters!'
"The elder's face assumed a severe ex
pression as he slowly and deliberately re
plied: " 'Well, dominie, I hate to say it, but
the truth of the matter is I very seldom eat
"I glanced at my wife. Her face was
almost a crimson hue and tears were start
ing from her eyes. I think I felt a trifle
savage, but I betrayed no sign.
'After a tew seconds ot tne most pain
ful embarrassment I ever experienced the
elder broke the silence by saying with un
" 'Yon see, dominie, I very seldom eat
oysters because I very seldom get them,'
and he burst into a tremendous roar of
laughter that almost made the dishes
'Of course he did ample justice to the
dinner, which at the beet was frugal
enough, bnt I don't think that my wife
ever quite forgave him for those painful
moments of suspense."
