There is more trouble in the Assyrian colony, and the county attorney's office has been the scene of gatherings of Assyrian colonists, dark, curly-haired and excited, for three or four days. The principal thing that is disturbing some of them is the question of whether or not Mrs. Barbara Foras will die. Mr. Foras, who rejoices in the ancient name of Shaban, says he has Ave young "keeds," and that Mrs. Barbara is expected to re joice his heart with another very shortly, unless, indeed, she dies. SThe doctor of the family has issued a certificate stating that Mrs. Barbara has recently contracted heart affection through intense excitement brought on by a big row which she and her Ave offspring had with the Assyrian George family, consist ing of Antone George, Joseph George, An toninus George, and Mrs. Jeruth George. The quintet of "keeds" referred to so touchingly by Shaban, who has a mild voice, a short, curly brown beard and deep, dark eyes that may have seen the land of Canaan as well as Assyria, were principal actors in the drama which has resulted in heart trouble for their mother and much woe for Shaban, who stands hat in hand in the prosecutor's office and says soberly that his wife has to lie in bed now on the border of the valley of the shadow and that the "keeds" are too much for him. There are two stories concerning how the troubles related came to befall the Foras family. Shaban, who desires the Georges arrested and confined in the Castle keep under the courthouse, after having been touched up with an hour or so on the rack-his mild Oriental notion of punishment-declares that two or three of the Georges, inspired by old grudges, descended upon his abode during his ab sence and licked Sam Hill out of his "keeds," who were as innocent of wrong doing as the lambs that fed on Reulah's hills, and that. not satisfied with lambast ing the dusky Foras hopefuls, handed Mri. Barbara an abusive talk that nearly pros' trated her. and has since brought on the heart nmlady. The Georges deny Shaban's version, and declare that the row broke out among the "kccrds" of both families, and that although Mlrs. Barbara was confined, owing to her delicate condition, to her bed, she jumped up and pitched into the fight with a vigor and effect that not only astonished them but was, in their opinion, enough to give a whole neighborhood heart trbuble. This morning Shaban and a friend ap peared at the county attorney's office again and asked what was to be done to re dress his wrongs and help Barbara get well of her heart complication. He was told to go away again and await the final outcome of the excitement Mrs. Barbara has gone through, when something might be done for him. Antone George had Shaban arrested yes terday for beating his young son in re taliation for the trouble and injury caused Barbara, and serious trouble may result to Shaban, as it is said the boy has Ibeen delirious since his injuries and has had to have the attendance of a physician. BAT IMMURED FOR 32 YEARS. A small wooden box on the third floor of Sadlers, Bryant & Strattan's Business college, to and ia North Charles street, Baltimore, holds captive a hbat of the or dinary "leather wing" species, which, ac cording to all accounts, has had the re markable experience of being immured within a brick wall for 3s years and yet lives to hiss disapproval at anyone who lifts the lid of thte box to examine it. The bat was discovered on last Wed nesday walled up in a sumall cavity made by a broken brick. The cavity had been plastered over with mortar, and while it is possible that some air may have en tered the miniature tomb, the entrance of food or light was practicahy impossible. In the same cavity was also found the dead body of another bat. This one was dried into the semblance of a piece of black cloth, which rapidly disintegrated when exposed to the air. The live bat, according to the state ment of Alfred Paris, a carpenter, who discovered it, appeared to feel quite lively and flew around the room. Blinded by the light it knocked against a rafter, fell to the floor and was captured. The cav ity in which tLe bat was found is said to have been closed up and not reopened since that part of the building was erected in 137:.

Word has been received from Major J. B. Pond of New York that Capt. Rich mond Pearson Hobson of the United States navy will be in Butte on April as and address the Butteites on 'America ansl the Americans." Lieutenant Hlobson is en gaged in a tour of the Northwest and the coast. At present he is in Texas.. Some time ago Lieutenant Hobson ex pressed a desire to resign because of his failing eyesight and a desire to tour the country and lecture on his experiences in the navy and the Spanish-American war. The government refused to permit ,hin to resign, but allowed him to retain his com mission and at the same time make his lecture tour. Houbson has been meeting with phen t. enal success in his tour of the Pac hic coast, men, women and children turning out to hear the hero of the Merrimac. He is one of the brilliant lights of the American navy. In the future no history will bIe written that does not relate the exploit of Captain Hol.son. When it was knouwn that Cervera's fleet was in the har hor of Santiago the late Rear-Admiral Sampson conceived the idea of sealing it up and thus preventing' the possibility of any escape. Volunteers were called for to lead the daring expediton., and one of the first to reeo and was 1.cutenant Hlobson. It was not necessacry to explain to the young lieutenant that he took his life.n,, his hands. andl thnt 1'hetl er the pIlan faild or succc.d "d, he probaly would not return a'ive. He was aware of the danger, and k'inwirp 'whnt he was going into was will i". to n t'er hlis life as a sacrifice to his Cot'ints-". lite :.teered the collier Merrimnac into the mouth of the harbor in the dead of night, s.'nk it to the bottom and with his comrades jumped into the stream. His cal t":re * 1 tnltrsb uncut imprisonment are a mmutcr of I,1 tr"'. Captain lHobson is the son of a confeder ate veteran. His presence at Santiago typi fied the perfect unity between the North and the South. The story he has to tell is well worth hearing, "The American Navy; Its Traditions and Victories," re counted by a man who is a brilliant mem ber of that navy; a part of it, tradition., who aided in winning one of its greatest victories. Lieutenant liobson will return to the East by way of Washington, Montana, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska and the I)a kotas. lie will visit Butte and Helena on his arrival from the coast, and after s.peaking here will go on to Missoula. When several women offered to kiss the hero, Richmond Pearson Ilobson, the young man, who was chivalrous, young and a Southerner, promptly put utp hi, lips to be kissed, and soon the newspapers began to joke about it. Then began th,. uldloing of Hlobson, the hero. The general public soon forgot the here, of the Merrymac in the "hero of the merry sm~:ack." From this simple little piece of foolishness sprang all of Captain Ilobson's troubles. The public condeumned'the epi sode and refused to forget it, even after the young naval officer realized his mis take and reformed. The press has ridli. ruled him so that public opinion has changed entirely toward him, and the peo ple of the South have allowed themselves to follow the general trend in joking about a( lptain Hobson.

N THE BANKRUPTS. Sllarpcr's Weekly. I A measure of great ilmpl.rtlce tIo 1usi Iness oien and lawyers- ulnd ' Icd, to the wholl, culnnlllUity- is the aIel wihich was signcdll by the president on FebruaIry S, antd by which the Iunkrupt law of iH,89 was imaterially amended. We observe, in the first place, that by the new law pre ferred creditors of a person who soon afterwards becomells a bankrupt are not Ie barred from halving other claims passed upon by a failure to lurrenller the amlOInt received, Inl Ipursuanlce of a decision of the I'lllted Status supreme court, a pre ferred creditor may now retain the amount paid, provihed, of course, the payment was not fraudlllent. while at the same time, as regarils ,debts unplaid,, lie will share the righits of othelr creditors. Another ilm portalit alllellnlldllllt provides that the ap pOilltm-'lt of II receiver for ill illsolventI urporl; iti. shall lie deAenrelld au act' of banikruptcy, entitling the creditors to chioose thellir OWnl trlstelr. Among the objectioins to a discharge which arc inchlded ill the new law is the giving of a failse ,imrcantile statement or the Iroof that a voluntal;ry bankrupt has 3sought to goi thrlullloh hankruptcy more than once in six years. The hill just en. cwted also adds to the list of debts from which a hbankrupt cannot be relieved by a discharge in bankruptcy. Among these aihlitions are debts to wife and children, and alimony; altso any sum ldue under a judicial decision to a seduced woman or for the support of an illegitimate child. \We note, finally, that the list of corpora tiions permitted to go into voluntary bank ruiplcy will hereafter include miinlg cor porations, and that the fees of referees and trustees are to be increased on an average by alout So per cent of the fees hitherto alloweid by law. Always In Style. [\Washington Star.] :You don't care much for display?" Not much," replied the very wealthy man. "Yet there Is some satisfaction In not being wholly out of style," "That is the point precisely. The things that money buys go out of fashion in a few months, but the money Itself becomes more stylish every century."
