Officers of the Korth U-rman Lloyd steamer Dresden, from EVtmen, report' that a remarkable mirage was seen at sea w hile apprrach ing the Maryland coast. When 200 miles east of the Maryland shore the officer of the deck and the lookouts made out the powerful lights on Ca;e Henry, Cape Charles lightship, and Hog Island light. This was at 9 o'clock at night and the beacons burned brightly on the horizon. According to the calculations of the ehla's officers the lights were not due to be seen for 16 hours later, and they were startled to see them, distinctly off the bow. At first it was feared that the ship's position" was in error or that the ves pers navigating instruments were out of ord'-r. These were found to be correct and strong night marine glasses Wrre leveled at the lights. It was then discov ered that two light houses and a light ship, both inverted and above the lights could be made cut in the blackness. The passengers crowded on deck to see the unusual sight. Vi I LL PLAY NO 310 R E. -Princess Chimay's Rigo Makes a Bargain With Her Folks London. May 6. Princess Chimay with TUgo. will Have London for Carlsbad, returning here in June to stay until September. Negotiations for Rigo's ap pearance on the stage, either in London or America, are all off owing to an ar rangement concluded the other day be fore Consul General Osborne. "I had an offt-r to play in private fiouses in New York," said Rigo, "at a salary of $l.t.0 for each appearance. This meant $100,000 for the season for certain, but out of d"f-renoe fur the wishes of my wife's family I have de clined all engagements now and forever. We signed an agreement to this effect before the consul, I myself never to appear at a public performance airam. This means a bir loss to me. but the family was very generous, making set tlements to compensate for the loss. ftre anxious now to- avoid ail publicity and to live -quietly in the future. I love to play the violin, but will play only in private in the future." Rigo was the hero of a romantic duel episode, according to a story he told when discussing his future plans. It happened in Cairo some time ago. He paid a German doctor named Rudolph uttered a sneering remark about the princess, which came to Rigo's ears. The 1.

When Rigo's seconds went to see the doctor they found he had left Cairo for Alexandria. A week later he met adversary in Cairo. Tha encounter was stormy. The doctor reached for his pis tol, but Rigo struck the doctor over the knuckles with his cane, forcing him to drop his revolver. Then he slashed him several times over the face. The sequel to the encounter was an investigation before the Hungarian and German con suls. "I told them I struck him," said Riga, "because he refused to fight after insult ing my wife. A dozen witnesses of the encounter corroborated my story. The result was a nominal fine of 30 francs imposed upon me. On leaving: the court I publicly stated I would thrash him in the street wherever I met him. Rudoiph decided not to take an chances of further thrashings, so he left immediate ly for Alexandria, where he still remain ed when I left Cairo." TORPEDO BOAT BUILT. About Twenty Will Soon Ba Turned Over to Government. New York, Slay 6. Twenty torpedo boat destroyers and torpedo boats will be turned over to the government by contractors within the next few months, says a special from Washington to the Herald. The destroyer recatur will be ready for her preliminary trial in June and the destroyer Dale a month later. The Rainbridge, the Barry and the Chauncey have been advanced to about the same stage. The Lawrence and the MacDoneiugh are about completed. The Perry has been tried, but failed to make her speed, and her screws will be aJter ed. The Paul Jones and the Preble are well along toward completion, but their trials will be delayed that their sterns may be remodelled. The torpedo boats Strincham and Goldsbrotigh have had preliminary trials but on account of ac cidents will have to again go over the orTieial course. The Railey has success fully passed her preliminary trial. The Shubrick will soon be delivered to trio government. The Harney, the Riddle, the Riakeley, the De Long and the O'Brien, it is expected, will have their trials this summer.

Expect to Get Rich by Following in Wake of Phillips. Chicago, May 6. Ten thousand clerks in Chicago are speculating in stocks and grain. Most of them are of the class employed in La Salle street and the adjacent neighborhood, where the epidemic spreads easily from employer to employe. Thousands of clerks have beco.ne so absorbed in the craze that they have bargained their wages for weeks ahead to loan "sharks" and are playing chance with the yet unearned salaries. Some of them are winning, others are not; still others will be on the wrong side of the ledger when the final accounting comes. Books in the offices of the "loan sharks" of the city contain an echo of the era of speculation. Mortgaging their salaries and raising money on every possible possession, clerks in the offices of brokers, banks, and the va rious great industrial companies are seeking to reap small fortunes. Some have tied up their salaries for six months, and have put up margins with the money thus secured. Their theory is that salary mortgages can easily be paid with "one single stroke of good luck, even if they have to pay 10 per cent, a month." Board of Trade clerks are chiefly in corn, for to them it is a simpler science than stocks, and many of them are seeking to be second Phillipses. Then, in the banks and in the stock brokers' offices, the speculative bent is, of course, for Burlington. Union Pacific, and other stocks which have had sky rocket tendencies. "There are 10.000 clerks who are play ing the stock and grain markets," said a La Salle street broker. "Many of them have 'tied up' their salaries on the 10 per cent, a month plan to raise money for margins. These fellows have seen men with money tell of fortunes by ju dicious investments, and they are lay ing plans to follow the same course. Chicago's brokerage world is honey combed with the dealings of clerks and 'financial agents.' They won't have sal aries for months if their schemes fail to work out and yield a profit. In the event of failure the constable and the justice court will have an inning, and there may be numerous sad stories to relate in the end. This game of playing stocks and grain is a serious matter, but clerks in the brokers' offices refuse to see the risk. "This is a rich man's market. The man who deals on 'shoestring' margins may end in the bottom of the lake. One day's fluctuations are likely to wipe out the accounts of hundreds of these young men. Then those who have merely pledged their salaries will have a hard enough time getting on their feet. Those who have borrowed from rela tives and friends will suffer humiliation and some who may have used funds not their own in the hope of repaying by their winnings will face open prison doors." As a result of this rage for specula tion, business is excellent for the money loaners. "The clerks." said one money loaner "are of the class who see speculation and know something of its inns and outs. They are looking for big win nings and consequently have not been particular in the security offered making every effort to get every cent with which to try to do something big in the markets. They have received money on the usual contracts of 10 per cent, interest each month, and if any slump in the market comes there will be many reputations and positions which will have to be protected. Spec ulation has drawn every possible prophet into its trail. I guess the loan men will be all right which ever way the market goes. No, I never was a prophet on markets and I have nothing to sav. I leave that prediction to Rus sell Sage. We'll get our money, all rhrht." Among the clerks thmselves there is no denial that the speculation fever is epidemic. "Every one of the boys who can raise the coin is trying to 'rag' off a bunch of money," said a Board of Trade clerk. "We are following the trail of George Phillips chiefly. You see. corn can be grabbed tip on margins, and a few hun dred dollars will allow a good range for the market. The stock exchange is a rich man's market, to our eyes. Charles Head Smith may grind out $100,000 and John Dupee grab up $1, 080.000. but. we know that there was money put into the mill to get thl coin out. Consequently, corn is a better game to play. Ten per cent, a month? Why. sure: the fellows are tied up every way. Rut just wait until things pay out. We'll all go into the money loaning business ourselves." There are small fortunes In "mar gins" being swept off almost every dav, but the commission men have little comment to make on that score. In one big office alonei there are more than 400 clerks engaged in speculation. "It's a gambler's game." said a clerk from this office. "We make our pools and then we tro after biar game accord ing to 'tins' from the office. There pre just 433 fellows over there who aspire to fame in this way, and such a mar ket as this offers opportunity for trial. The monev? O. we cet that in every way possible. We are willing to tak our chance, though. Big winnings? There have been none thus far." GROW OUR COFFEE. All the United States Requires Bais ed in ETew Possessions. New York. Mav That all the coffee consumed in the United States can be grown in the islands which have been ac quired since the outbreak of the Soanish. war. is the conclusion reached by the bu reau of statistics of the treasury depart ment at Washington, after a careful study of the coffee producing capabilities of the new possessions. The islands in which coffee can be suc cessfully' trrown are Hawaii. Porto Rico and the' Philippines. Porto Rican coffee, in the market where it is well known, is regarded as the best in the world, and it is the conclusion of the bureau of statis tics that when coffee plantations have been developed in the Philippines and Hawaii, all of the one million dollars or more which the United States sends abroad every week for coffee can be ex pended among the inhabitants of our own islands. Porto Ricnn coffee has long com manded hieh prices in European markets, though it has been comparatively little krotvn in the United States. Developments of coffee culture in Ha waii during the last few years have been verv satisfactorv in the quality produced and the prices realized. In the Philippines the product is of high grade. The fact that the United States is by far the greatest coffee consuming country and is stendilv increasing her consump tion, suggests 'that American capital and energv mav turn their attention to the promising gold now opened in the islands. American coffee importations during the nine months enrtinsr with March. 191, amounted to 17.344.0V pounds, with a value of $45 213.0v.. a sum nearl y $5.000. 009 in excess of the value of the coffee im ports of the same months of the preced ing fiscal vear. indlcatinsr that for the full fiscai veai the total value, of the coffee imported into the United States will be about $0,KJ,iu.
