DR. PULLMAN DEAD. 37011167 of the Deceased Car Builder Victim of Paralysis. Baltimore, Aug. 27. Information has been received here of the death at Camp Royal Weekly, Thousand Islands, of the Eev. Dr. Royal H. Pullman, of this city, brother of the late George M. Pullman, the palace car maker, and of the Rev. James M. Pullman of Chicago. Last week Dr. Pullman was stricken with paralysis and it soon became evi dent that he could not recover. The end came Sunday morning. The body will be brought to Baltimore for burial. Dr. Pullman was .74 years of age. A son and daughter survive him, the former 'being George H. Pullman, secretary to Clara Barton, of the Red Cross society, and the latter, Mrs. Charles E. Smith of Evanston, 111. Dr. Pullman was born at Auburn, N. Y., being the eldest of a family of ten children. He studied theology, and in 1S53 entered the home mission field of the Universalis! church. In the following year he was ordained full minister' and labored in northern New Tork with much success. He built two churches there, occupied the pulpit of the Univer salist church at Peoria, 111., from 1867 to 1S72, building the finest house of wor ship in town during his pastorate and then took the post of general secretary of the Universalist general convention. He displayed great activity and institu ted popular religious meetings in various parts of the country. In 1S77 Dr. Pullman was called to the Second Universalist church in this city, .where he attracted not less attention than he had done in other fields. Since 1897 he had lived in retirement, being elected pastor emeritous and giv ing the demonimation. such services as his physical strength permitted. He at one time ran on the Republican ticket or congress, but was defeated. TWO TALES OF W. R.HE1WT From the Wave.J Tt grieves my artistic soul that "W. R. Hearst did not go on with his vice presi dential campaign and secure the nomina tion. The crusade to follow would have been one to give joy to the heart. With out doubt he would been one to give joy to the heart. Without doubt he would haa-e taught us a new way of electing or defeating a vice president, as he has taught us a. new way of running- a sensa tional newspaper. Which reminds me of two good stories they are tell in New York about the vaudeville methods of journalism trained in his staff. It ap pears that during the equinoctial storms of this spring news came into the Journal office that a par.y was shipwrecked on a little island down the coast. A tug was fitted out and loaded with provisions and the most vivid space writers to be spared: the engraving department got ready for rush orders and the business office made preparations to open a subscription for the needy subscribers. When the tug reached the island they found a happy party of campers having the best time of their lives. "Shipwrecked!" thev said, "whv, you're crazy." But the Journal men had come to rescue and refused to depart emptv handed at the risk of their situation A compromise was finally effected; half of the party agreed to be "rescued" and car ried on to New Tork, while the other half stayed. Thus the reporters saved their positions and the paper had Its sen is at ion. Later on it occurred to Mr. Hearst that a little charity to the sweltering children of the tenements would look well on the front page. So he packed a squad of the dirtiest little boys and girls available and sent them down to Coney Island to splash In the surf and dig on the beach for a week. They were put in charge of a cub reporter from the country who mad orders to "take them out, keep them Boing and get In a column a day, top toead." The weather changed In the night, and the week turned out to be the cold est known in New York for manv a sum mer. Nevertheless the "bright young man" had his orders. He dragged his victims out. carted them to the island, handed around pails and set thera to digging and wading. All that week the farmhouses of Coney Island were besieged by barefoot children begging a chance to come in and get warm. Before they were comfortably (settled at the Are the Journal man would rush in and drag them off to the water. 'Here, here," he would say. "you've come to dig in the sand and splash in the water and you've got to do it." At the end of the week, when he returned his squad and started to get a new supplv, the inhabi tants of the "sweltering tenements" rose en masse, laid him out with clubs and rocks and defied philanthropy. Worst of all, the Journal had to pay the resulting doctor bills In order to hush up the story.

Clarence Kirk, a 12-year-old boy, was taken to the police station last night by Mr. King, humane officer, who said the boy had come to his house In the evening asking for something to eat. He gave the boy his supper and then took him to the station to stay over night, or until some arrangements could be made to send him to his home in Kansas City. The boy said that he had left Kansas City in company with his uncle and an other man, who were going about the country in a wagon trading horses. They had camped about ten miles south of To peka and on Saturday morning they sent him to a farm house for a bucket of water and while he was gone they drove away and left him. He walked to Topeka and told the police that he wanted to go to Kansas City. He started on his Journey this morning. WILL HOLD HIS NOSE. Goyernor Filigree Explains How He May Cast His Vote. Detroit, Mich., Aug. 27. Governor Hazen S. Plngree grimly remarked to day that he did not feel like a political has-been, while he dictated the follow ing reply in answer to a. query: "1 voted the Republican ticket first when Abraham Lincoln was a. candi date, and I've voted it ever since. I'm free to confess that I've never been a Mark Hanna Repblican, and couldn't be if I tried. Hanna, however, is not the principles of the Republican party, and some day the party will shake him off. In my opinion, It is the patroticduty of every man who is in the habit of voting the Republican ticket to keep up his allegiance in hope of finally rescuing Republicanism from the clutches of Hannaism. Such being the case I shall probably hold my nose, vote for Mc Kinley and hope for the best, "H. S. PINGREE, Governor. In supplementing the above statement Mr. Pingree said: "I do not believe in lying about any thing, not even my own political party. That is why I wrote so frankly. I am what you might call a James G. Blaine Republican. I want to do all I can to help my party and consequently I be lieve in its present condition the best thing that could happen to it would be for the Democratic party to be victori ous this year or some other year in the near future. Mark Hanna and the rest of that Ohio clique have nearly succeed ed wrecking the Republican party, but I believe the people who have the best interests of that party at heart will soon call a halt, even if they have to go so far as to vote with the Democrats to do the trick. We've had enough of Ohio dictation in the Republican party. I believe it is the duty of all good citi zens, Republicans or others, to allow the Demorcatic party to be built up and not try to tear it down, so that for the best interests of the country, it will be able to hold the 'grand old party' in check. Look at the way this govern ment, under Republican control, has taken the tariff off manufactured prod ucts of such concerns, and practically forced the Page Wire Fence company of this state to the wall. Rubber-backed McKinley is allowing Hanna and the other dictators to try through him to convert this republic into an empire, and the sooner this thing is stopped the better it will be for the United States," BIG ORDER FOR CATTLE. Armour to Send 6,000,000 Pounds to China. Chicago, Aug. 27. Armour & Co. have received an order from the Russian gov ernment for 6.000.0ft) pounds of "beef on the hoof," to feed the soldiers of the czar in China. This is the largest order of the kind in the history of the Chicago meat trade. Options are said to have been ta ken upon every available ship in the carrying trade on the Pacific. It will take 5.000 fatted cattle to fill the order. The cattle will be sent from San Francisco via Hawaii and Japan. Suicide Follows Duel. New Tork, Aug. 27. H. H. Striairon, a lumber -merchant of Baltimore, was probably fatally shot at the Hotel Ven dome today by H. J. Ford, who register ed from Boston. Ford then committeed suicide by blowing out his brains. Strid iron registered at the hotel on Friday night. Ford had been in the hotel for several days but did not register until Stridiron arrived. The men breakfasted together today and then went out. They returned and went to Stridiron's room and shots were heard immediately after. Stridiron was taken to the hospital in a critical condition. He had registered from Baltimore.

The property owners on Topeka ave nure, south of Fourteenth street, where a new pavement is being laid by Ritchie and Ramsey, are united in a protest against the poor quality of brick being used, and poorer workmanship. All day yesterday the people living out there were busy examining the piles of poor brick strung along the parks, and the slip-shod manner in which a portion of the pavement had been laid. They found that many imperfect brick and others with corners and whole ends broken or chipped off had been used, but in every instance the defective parts were under neath and unobseryable on the surface. The brick for this pavement is from the Topeka kilns, and It is declared by the property owners that they are the poorest ever used for any purpose in To peka. The taxpayers are today prepar ing a memorial to present to the coun cil tonight setting forth all these and many other matters, in which that body will be plainly told that unless the pave ment in question is properly laid and with better brick that they will go into the courts and enjoin the payment of a dollar to the contractors. Mr. A. A. Hurd is one of the interested parties, as he owns considerable property in the block now beig paved. The other prop erty owners will join Mr. Hurd, who has promised to give his services as lawyer without cost to them. The memorial will charge that some body is getting a "rake-off" on the worthless lot of brick piled up on To peka avenue. A committee of taxpayers waited on Mayor Drew and City Engi neer Wise this morning and formally declared war. WOMEN ATGOLF. Championship Tournament Opens in New York Tuesday. New Tork, Aug. 27. By far the most important and interesting championship tournament ever held by the Women's Golf association of America will begin tomorrow mortiing on the links of the Shlnnecock Hills club at Southampton. Sixty-five fair experts have entered, and at least a third of these are believed to have excellent chances of winning. They have come from the west, the south and the east, and each player1 has spent weeks in perfecting her game.Miss Ruth Underhill, the champion; Miss Be atrix Hoyt, the ex-champion; Miss Ge nevieve Hecker, the Metropolitan cham pion; Miss Bessie Anthony of Chicago, the western champion; Mrs. Caleb Fox of Philadelphia, the silver medallist in the 1S99 tournament; Miss Julia Clark, Miss Trances Griscom, of Philadelphia; Mrs. A. Dewitt Cochrane, of Ardsley.ard numerous other stars have been famil iaring themselves with the beautiful Long Island course. Despite recent reverses and apparent ly indifferent work recently. Miss Hoyt is the most interesting personality in golf. Her true game is remarkable, and her admirers predict that she will play it this week and recapture the title that Miss Underhill wrested from her in 1899. Shlnnecock Hills is her home club, and she knows every hill and valley, every putting green and fair green by heart. In this she will have a decided advant age over many of her opponents. Miss Underhill is a hard woilter and puts up a good sample of golf, but her game lacks brilliancy, and therefore few enthuse over her playing. Few believe she will be even a competitor in the semi-finals. Miss Anthony, of Chicago, and Mrs. Fox, of Philadelphia, are regarded as really dangerous, but down in their hearts easterners fully expect to see them beaten. Miss Julia Clark has been attracting considerable attention of late by her clever playing at Shlnnecock Hills, and she will have a good gallery behind her every day. The favorite here is Miss Cenevieve Hecker. The manner in which she de feated all comers in the recent Metro politan championship tourney at Mor ristown was astonishing. It was her first appearance in an open contest, so she was practically unheard of. Her preparation for the tourney this week has bene very careful and the woman who beats her will doubtless be the new champion. KAISER'S SERMON Which He Preached on Board the Royal Yacht Correspondence of Associated Press. Berlin, Aug. 14. Thousands or copies of the sermon recently preached by Em peror William on the yacht Hohenzol lern have been published for distribution among the German sailors and soldiers in China. His majesty chose as his text the eleventh verse of the seventeenth chapter of Exodus, "And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand that Isarel prevailed, and when he let down his hand Amalek prevailed." After reviewing the text the report of the sermon as printed quotes the emperor as follows: "A hot and bloody struggle has be gun. Many of our brothers stand al ready yonder under fire, many are on their way to the enemy's coasts, and you have seen them, the thousands who, at the call 'volunteers to the fore,' who will be the guardian of the empire, now assemble, to enter the fight with flying colors. But you, who remain behind at home, who are bound by other sacred duties, say, do you not hear God's call, which He makes to you, and which says to you 'go upon the mountains, raise up thy hands to the heavens.' The prayer of the just can do much, if it is in earn est. "Thus let it be, yonder, far away, the hosts of fighters; here at home the hosts of praying men. May this be the holy battle picture also of our days. May this peaceful morning hour remind us may it remind us of the sacred duty of intercession, of the sacred power of in tercession. The sacred duty of interces sion. Certainly, it is an enthusiastic moment when a ship with the young men on board weighs anchor. Did you not see the warriors' eyes flash? Did you not hear their many-voiced hurrahs? But when the native shores vanish. When one enters the glowing heat of the Red sea or the heavy waters of the ocean, how easily brightness and enthus iasm grow weary! Certainly it is a sublime moment when after a long voy age, in the distance the straight lines of the German forts can be seen and the black, white and red flags of the Ger man colony become visible and comrades in arms stand on the shore waiting to give a hearty reception. But the long marches in a burning sun, the long nights of bivouac in the rain! How eas ily gaiety and strength vanish. "Certainly it is a longed-for moment when at last the drums beat to the charge anl the bugles are blown to ad vance, when a command is given, 'for ward at the enemy.' But then amid the roar of the guns and the flashing of the shells comrades fall to the right and left, and hostile batteries still refuse to yield, how easily the bravest heart then begins to tremble." A BOOM FOR NOME. Reports From That Country Favo Railroads and Steamships. Nome, Aug. 17, via Seattle, Wash., Aug. 27. Late mining developments have been of a very satisfactory na ture. No doubt now remains of the genuineness of Kougrock strike; Harris and Quartz creeks, in that country are rich, and the former shows from 25 cents to $1.50 to the pan. Oregon creek and its tributary, Hungry creek, in the Granite district, have developed unex pected richness, and a. very wides ex panse of pay gravel. Coming nearer home attention is just now centering on Hastings creek, eight miles east of Nome. There prospectors have uncov ered a gravel bed fifteen feet in thick ness, and of unknown breadth, extend ing from the gulch way up into the hills. Wherever prospected ,it has been found to carry gold in paying quanti ties. Prospectors believe that in it they have found the "ancient channel." Al ready several pumping plants have been set up on the creek and it Is be lieved that the next season Hastings creek will be the scene of most exten sive operations in the country. The steamer Albion left yesterday for an island in the lower waters of the Arctic ocean to rescue three castaways, one of whom is Count Du Pare of Paris. The men had attempted to reach Siberia by a small schooner, but the high wind prevented and the little craft was driven far oft her course and into the Arctic. JAIL D Ell VERY.

GOT HIS JOB AGAIN. fFrom an Exchange. A good story is told of a man called William, who is engaged as a window cleaner at a certain big hotel in London. One morning William, instead of doing his work, was reading the paper, and, as bad luck would have it, the manager look ed in. "What's this?" he said. William was dumb. "Pack up your things and go," said the manager. So William went to the ofTice, drew the money which was owing to him, and then went upstairs and put on his Sunday clothes. Coming down to say good-bye to the other servants, he happened to run across the manager, who did not recog nize him in his best coat "Do you want a job?" asked the man ager. "Yes, sir," said William. "Can you clean windows?' "Yes, sir." "You look a handy sort of chap. I only gave the last man 22 shilling, but 1 11 give you 25." "Thank you, sir," said William; and in half an hour he was back in the same old room cleaning the window this time, and not reading the paper.

The latest thing that the purveyors to the gastronomic demands of the of fice boys, messengers and clerks in the Wall street district are supplying to their patrons is the ice cream sand wich. It made its first appearance dur ing the hot spell last week. A young man showed up with a wagon and be gan to descant on the value of his waxes at the corner of Nassau and Wall streets. He soon had a crowd around him, and the first man that tried an ice cream sandwich bit into it ginger ly. It was made of two graham wafers and a slab of ice cream between. The wafers were fresh and crisp and sweet and the ice cream was good. Then, too, it had the advantage of being cold in addition to being palatable. The cost of the sandwich was one, two or three cents, according to the thickness of the slab of ice cream. This new edible made such, a hit that its fame spread through the Wall street district the first day, and the young man who invented it did not have enough of stock to satisfy the de mand. The second day the brokers themselves got to buying ice cream saindwiches and eating them in a demo cratic fashion side by side on the side walk with the mesengers and the office boys. All of the other ice cream and lemonade vendors saw that they were outclassed and imediately began to sell imitations. The young man held the bulk of the trade, bowever, throughout the week. This Dog Stopped the Train. From the Denver Republican.. Somebody in the vicinity of Hazelton is lamenting the loss of a large and valuable bloodhound. The animal engaged in a fight Tuesday morning with the locomo tive which hauls the No. 3 flyer from Den ver to Cheyenne, and was literally bump ed oft the earth. In spite of his share in the tragedy. Engineer Mike White, who handles the flyer, is not to be counted among the dead bloodhound's mourners. On his return from Cheyenne, replying to an expression of regret for the fate of the dog. Engineer White vented a grin of deep satisfaction and said: "What could the blamed brute expect when he went so far out of his class?" For some time before the unequal com bat took place the late Hazelton blood hound had indicated a decided and violent antipathy toward Mike White's engine. As the flyer slipped slowly out of Hazelton in the early morning, with a clear track ahead, the ears of Engineer White and Fireman BolthofC suddenly would be as sailed by a deep and hoarse "Woof, woof, woor'r'r; wow, wow, wow!" Then from some covert by the side of the railroad there shot a streak of slate colored dog, and the bloodhound came bounding down the track, right between the rails on which the wheels of the train were turning. Neither the weird howlings of the locomotive whistle nor the physical demonstrations made from his cab window by Engineer White suffered to check the dog's career to turn him off the flyer's right of way. The regular result of this obstinacy was that the air brakes had to be applied and the train stopped. Prior to Tuesday morning a shovelful of hot cinders, followed by a combined on slaught on the part of the train crew, sent the hostile bloodhound off howling to such a distance that a fair start could be given the train before the brute returned to attack it. On this last and fatal occa sion, however, he changed his tactics, and the sequel was deplorable. The flyer already had been In trouble Tuesday morning on account of live ob structions. Passing a wayside ranch house a stop was made to avoid slaugh tering a flock of morbid turtle doves that crowded the rails and tracks. This inci dent did not sweeten the temper of En gineer White, and he was gloomily antici pating the slate-colored bloodhound as the train ran into Hazelton. In his uneasi ness he even whistled a few friendly dog calls. In the hope that the pioocinouna might make a premature appearance and be disposed of before .he train started. But, no, the blodhound showed up in his time and usual mood. The train was stopped again, but in stead of barking at the engine until he was attacked, as he had been doing, the dog this time retreated as the engine slow ed, and from a safe vantage point ahead continued to bark furiously at his elected enemy. Another start was made, and as the wheels began to spin, down came the bloodhound. aDDarentlv fully intent on charging the engine- The cow catcher almost brushed the nose of the brute be fore the train was brouKht to a standstill. But he was far up the road by the time the train crew had swarmed out to attack him. . The second delay was filled up with a serious consultation between the conduc. tor. engineer and fireman. Mike White was heard to say: "I believe the cuss 1m ANNOUNCEMENT. AT THE Exposition of 1 900 awarded by the International Jury to SewingMachines MADE AND SOLD ONLY BY SALESROOMS IN EVERY OTY.

With tail erect and hair all abristle the misguided dog bore down for the last time upon ms strange antagonist. But there was no slackening of the engine's speed. "Mike, you're going to kill that dog," said Fireman Bolthoft to his chief. The tone of the statement conveyed more of appeal and interrogation than mere declaration of evident fact. But the heart of Engineer White was barred against any soft sentiment toward the approaching bloodhound. "Bolthoft," said the engineer, "this train is going to Cheyenne today, whatever be comes of that dog. Stoke up." The fireman shook his head and looked out in time to see the object of his com miseration collide with the cow catcher, head first. Then, as the triumphant lo comotive sped past the scene of the brief encounter. Fireman BolthofC watched a slate-colored mass describe a parabola through the air and lad on the prairie, quite a distance from, l.e railroad track. At the next stopping place Engineer Mike White caused the blood of the dog to be washed from the cow catcher "for the sake of appearances." The Bobbers of the Thames. TSir Walter Besant in The Century.J They robbed the ships of their cargoes as they unloaded them; they robbed them of their cargoes as they carried them in the barge from the wharf to the ship. They were all concerned in it, man, wo man and child. They all looked upon the shipping as a legitimate object of plun der. There was no longer any question of conscience; there was no conscience left at all. How could there be any con science where there was no education, no religion, not even any superstition? Of course, the greatest robbers of the close of the last century were the lighter men themselves; but the boys were sent out in light boats which pulled out of sight under the stern of the vessels, and received small parcels of value tossed to them from the men in the ships. These men wore leathern aprons, which were contrived as water-tight bags, which they could fill with rum or brandy, and they had huge pockets concealed behind the aprons, which they crammed with stun". Onshore every other house was a drinking shop and a rence or a receiving snop. i ne evenings were spent in selling the day's robberies, and drinking the proceeds. Silk, velvets, spices, rum, brandy, tobacco, everything that was brought from over the sea, became the spoil of this vermin. They divided the work; they took different branches under different names: they shielded one another. If the Custom House people of the wharfingers tried to arrest one. he was protected by his companions. It was estimated in 1798 that goods to the value of 260,000 were stolen every year from the ships in the pool by the men who worked at discharging cargo. They people grew no richer, because they sold their plunder for a song and drank up the money every day. But they had, at least, as much as they could drink. Imagine, then, the consternation and disgust of this honest folk when they found that the ships were in future going to receive cargo and unlade, not In the open river, but in dock, the new wet dock, capable of receiving all; that the only en trance and exit for the workmen was by a gate, at which stood half a dozen stal wart warders; that the good old leathern apron was suspected and handled; that pockets were regarded with suspicion and were searched, and that the dockers who snowed bulginess in any portion of their figure were ignominiously set aside and strictly examined.
