Young Swell From Dixie Spent
$21,000 Seeing Gotham
New York, April 2. Malon Walton
Russell, scion of a prominent southern
family, has. come to grief in New Yoik
after a spasm of sight-seeing that car
ried everything before it.
Russell is a son of Col. Fleming Rus
sell of Louisiana, a salt mine operator
and a partner of ex-State Senator Miles.
the millionaire mining operator of New
Young Russell was employed in the
Cotton Exchange there and was con
tented with life until one day he won
52,700 en a horse race. In two weeks he
won $21,000.
Then Russell packed his trunk and
came to New York. He left New Or
leans on Feb. 28, losing $1,000 at poker
en route. Jumping into a cab he drove
to the Waldorf and took rooms at $8 a
day. He wanted to be shown to a
"swell" club house. Cabman Hennessy
drove him to Canfleld's resort and Rus
sell played faro until 5 o'clock the next
morning. He left the place $3,000 loser.
In the evening Russell did the tender

The next night he ran afoul of some
soubrettes. Then his money took wings.
He tried another shy at the faro bank,
which cost him $2,500. Dropping into
the Delavan he opened wine for the
pugilists, who congregate there. He
was introduced to Sharkey and later to
Corbett and Kid McCoy. After a week
more of wine, faro bank, soubrettes and
more wine, the young man from the
South found himself with just $100 in
his pocket, after paying a hotel bill of
$300 and a cab bill of $90.
This was the night of the Erne-Gans
fight. Russell wagered his "century" on
Cans and left the club house broke. It
then struck Russell that he had not a
soul, iu town to whom he could turn. His
pride and breeding prevented him from
appealing to any of his new friends for
a loan. Even his last ring had been
given away. .
After walking around for nearly two
hours, Russell bethought him of some
change h' had received on the cars and
reaching in his pocket found 40 cents.
He went into the Hoffman House and
called for a drink. His check was 15
cents. After that he soon reached Mills
hotel No. 1 and in the morning invest
ed his last nickel in "coffee and sink
ers." He could not telegraph home, as the
agent would not send his message col
lect. Mr. Russell returns home today

The Cruiser Buffalo Will Again Go

New York, April 2. The auxiliary
cruiser Buffalo, which has been lying
in the Brooklyn navy yard since she
returned from Manila last summer, is
to be commissioned again tomorrow as
a training ship for the second batch of
landsmen of whom the United States

will sail later in the week for Norfolk,
where she will take on part of her
crew, and then start for a Mediterra

The Buffalo will have 200 young men
on board when she leaves the Brooklyn
navy yard, and win pick up zau at
Norfolk. She will follow the route of
the Dixie, which took out the first lot
of "rookies," as the blue jackets call
them, some months ago.
The young men have all been en

the farms, and many have never seen
a ship before. They are a healthy lot.

Carpenters, Decorators and Other
Tradesmen to Go Out in New York.
New York, April 2. Many strikes in
the building trades will begin today,
but thy situation is not yet regarded
as serious, in view of the fact that a
number of the bosses are yielding.
In Brooklyn, 1,500 carpenters will de
mand 45 cents per hour, but it is doubt
ful if a strike will immediately follow
the refusal of the terms by the bosses.
In the Bronx district between 500 and
600 carpenters and painters may go out
because of the refusal of the bosses to
pay $3.50 for each day of nine hours and
declare Saturday half holidays.
At a meeting of carpenters held Sun
day it was said that 75 of 100 employers
had already agreed to the new scale of
wages. If necessary the affiliated trades
will be called out on sympathetic strikes
and in that case the building operations
of the Bronx may be seriously retarded.
At a meeting of the painters, decora
tors, paperhangers' and carpenters'
union, in Newark, N. J.., last night, it
was decided to strike for an increase
of 25 cents per day of eighthours. About
1.500 men will go out today if this de
mand is refused.
The carpenters and joiners in the
same city have made a demand for $3
a day and they will strfke today. Safe
ty engineers' and rock drillers' union,
the members of which do most of the
excavating for foundations in Harlem
and the Bronx, will strike today, 250
engineers, five hundred drillers and 500
laborers going out. The demand is for
an increase of 50 cents per day.
Fifteen hundred electrical workers
will demand on May 1 $4 per day instead
of $3.50.
Bad Accident to the Steamer Newport
in Alaskan Waters.
Seattle, Wash., April 2. The steamer
Newport, Captain Chester, en route
from this city to TTnalaska, ran or. a
reef in Tongass Narrows March 26, sus
taining injuries to her hull that will
necessitate the return of the vessel to
Seattle for repairs. When the City of
Seattle, whose officers brought the news
of her disaster, left Juneau, she was then
in that port.
Beyond a copy of a formal protest
which the Newport's master forwarded
to Austin Claiborne, agent for the Pa
cific Whaling company, who owns and
operates the Newport, only meagre de
tails of the accident are obtainable. In
the protest Captain Chester states that
his vessel ran on a hidden and unchar
tered reef in Tongass Narrows; that she
got off without assistance and made her
way to Juneau.
Soon after striking, according to the
story heard by the Seattle's officers,
the Newport sprang a slight leak. She
made her way to Douglas island, where
she was beached and her hull exam
ined. Her injuries, it appeared, were
not of a serious character, for the vessel
was taken to Juneau.
Lathers' Strike.
Cleveland, April 2. About 125 lathers

It Is Pointed Out by the Roy.
Dr. Parkhurst.
New York, April 2. In his sermon
last night at the Madison Avenue Pres
byterian church. Dr. Parkhurst referred
to the experiment of the Rev. Mr. Shel
don as editor of the Topeka Daily Cap
ital. He said:
"One reason why men suppose that
the gospel can not be closely applied in
common life is their failure to under
stand exactly what its precepts intend
the point Christ aimed at in the enun
ciation of those statutes, at least some
of those statutes.
"Secular papers as a rule have been
nervously, and in some instances fever
ishly, interested in that unique enter
prise, and their restlessness has at
times betrayed them into modes of
scripture exposition that were probably
the best they were capable of, but that
disclosed novel views of the gospel idea,
and that went a great way toward dem
onstrating the fact that even if Mr.
Sheldon was not competent to conduct
a daily secular paper in the way Jesus
would, it was as a great pity that some
body could not be found pretty soon
that could.
"The feature in the case that com
mends itself to the church and the
world is the underlying principles in
volved, not the special application of it
that happened at Topeka. The supreme
question that you and I are concerned
with is the matter of treating Christ's
precepts as practical statutes to be
adopted into our workaday life adopt
ed there, put in control there, not in
journalism merely, that is only thing
and we are not many of us journalists,
but in everything.
"Sheldon had a good deal to say
about doing things as Jesus would do
them. There is a suggestion about that
phrase although in his mouth it was
not cant, but it was infelicitous, it. gave
opportunity to the ungodly to revile.
" 'Ploughing as Jesus would plough,'
'sanitary plumbing that would please
Jesus,' touches in an unpleasant way
the spot where we keep our sense of the
Holy. Why not have said exercising in
everything we do editing, ploughing
or whatever else the same spirit which
Jesus exercised in what he did. and then
everything would turn on finding out as
accurately and nicely as possible just
what that spirit was."

Perry Belmont Thinks Democrats
Could Win With Bight Man.
New York, April 2. Perry Belmont,
who supported Palmer and Buckner in
1S96, thinks that the Democrats have
a great opportunity to elect a presi
dent. He said last night: The Repub
lican party is assailing and the Demo
crats are defending the constitution and
the supreme court. On that issue the
Democratic party can win, provided it
selects candidates in whom the coun
try can have confidence. Those who
have themselves attacked the integrity
of the supreme court, standing on the
Chicago platform, are disqualified from
leading in such an issue. The most vi
olent criticism of the administration
that is being made is the assertion that
even the unsuccessful candidate of 1896
is preferable now. If that is the case
how assured is Democratic success upon
fiew issues with a candidate represent
ing them.
"The Republican contention is that
congress when legislating for any part
of the United States outside of the
forty-five states is free to prescribe
such laws as it pleases, and that the
recent treaty with Spain has given
sovereignty over Porto Rico and the
Philippines unrestrained by the provi
sions of the constitution. The Demo
cratic party is on firm ground. The
treaty-making power as well as con
gress must obey the constitution. That
is the decision of the supreme court,
and is the law of the land until re
versed by the court.
"The treaty with Spain must be made
to conform thereto. The Republican
leaders are repeating a party shibbo
leth that the constitution was made
for the people, not the people for the
constitution. The constitution was or
dained for liberty and justice both de
nied to the Porto Rieans by the Mc
Kinley party. They are entitled to im
mediate recognition whether creating a
precedent for the Philippines or not.
"Even under Spanish rule the Porto
Ricans had deputies in the Cortes at
Madrid. Why should they not have ter
ritorial representation at Washington?
The prospects of the Democratic party
are growing brighter daily on this great
constitutional issue."

Joseph Jefferson Discusses Methods
of the Younger Actor.
Atlanta, Ga., April 2. Joseph Jeffer
son, who has been playing to immense
audiences here today, was in a capital
humor and discussed many topics of in
terest to the profession. In some man
ner the conversation took a turn in the
direction of Richard Mansfield and the
great actor had something interesting
to say about the younger one, who has
during the last few years made such a
name for himself. Mr. Jefferson said:
"Mansfield, I think is clever at times,
but at others quite artificial. His in
tensity, however, is marked and it at
tracts me. He over-acts and of course
that disturbs me, because it wakens in
me the thought that I would not play
the part that way, but be quieter, more
conservative at such times. His over
acting probably springs from intensity
and time may give more artistic con
trol. Still, as I said before, Mansfield's
intensity is attractive."
Democratic Congressman to Call on
Secretary Gage For Facts.
Washington, April 2. Representative
Fitzgerald has prepared a resolution
calling on Secretary Gage for the names
of the banks that have been handling
government funds in Porto Rico, Cuba.
Hawaii and the Philippines and the
banks that will probably be selected by
him as government depositories in those
islands if the Sibley bill, which is said
to be backed by tbs National City bank
of New York and kindred institutions,
should become a law.
The Sibley bill was reported to the
house Ir an amended form after ex
posures showing that the measure was
prepared at the instigation of Standaid
Oil financiers, who were plotting to con
trol all of the monetary affairs of the
islands, amounting annually to $117,000,
000. "It is time that it should be known
who is handling these government
funds," said Mr. Fitzgerald, "and an ef
fort is going to be made to bring the
whole matter before congress. The
enormous interest profits that can be
made out of government funds handled
by the banks selected by Mr. Gage
should not go into the pockets of a trust
that is already rich enough to control
the Republican party. The matter is
one that should be investigated by con
A Millionaire's Son to Be an Assist
ant Storekeeper at $5 a Week.
New York, April 2. Although his
fortune is estimated at .$250,000 and
that of his father at $1,000,000, Emil H.
Rosenblatt will leave today on board
the transport Sumner to serve for a
year as assistant ship storekeeper, at
a salary of $20 a month. His duties will
be to give out supplies to the crew and
the soldiers, and often to do manual
labor. In spite of this he seems per
fectly happy, and accepted the position
for no other cause that his love for the
sea and his desire to serve his country.
Rosenblatt signed for duty more than
a month ago, although it was not
known until yesterday, when the in
spection was made. Since March 20 he
has lived on board the transport, but
only a few of his best friends knew3 of
it until it was announced that he was
on? of the crew.
Rosenblatt is the son of Henry Rosen
blatt. His home is at No. 237 East Seventy-second
street. For several years
he has been identified with the promi
nent merchandise brokers of the city,
and his office at No. 30 Broad street was
always busy.
Mr. Rosenblatt said yesterday:
"I have signed to do the work of an
assistant storekeeper, and I certainly
will attend to my duties to the bes.
of my ability. Of course the salary is
very small, but I did not come on board
to make my living, nor did I come to
lie in a hammock and watch the other
men do the work. I love the sea and
would a thousand times rather do the
work that I have to here than to be
cooped up in an office all day iong and
worry over 'puts' and 'calls.' "

partner of O'Brien, the suspected mur
derer, was the fourth victim. Graves is
missing and heretofore it has been
thought he came out to the coast im
mediately after the crime was com
mitted. The supposition is that O'Brien
murdered his partner.

Mr. Calvin Brewer, real estate dealer,
of 635 Jefferson street, says: "Ordinary
Anglo-Saxon fails to convey any idea
of what I suffered from my back when
on the Texas Pacific R. R., engineer be
tween Fort Worth and Texarkana. I
have often when I stooped to oil my en
gine suffered excruciatingly, and when
on the engine the least jar sent twin
ges of pain clean from my loins to the
top of my head. The trouble finally
forced me to give up my position, and
when weakness of the kidneys, partic
ularly observable at night, was added
to former troubles, my condition was
not one to be envied. Now if the first
box of Doan's Kidney Pills, procured
at Rowley & Snow's drug store, corner
of Sixth street and Kansas avenue, had
not brought me positive relief, I never
would have followed up the treatment,
neither could I be induced to recom
mend the preparation nor endorse its
claims. Send anyone to me for minu e
particulars of my experince with nd
opinions of Doan's Kidney Pills."
