after un inqulry'by tho roportcr. "Well, I
con give you somo about our trade, but don't
ask mo for my namo : for if my boss knew
that I told you anything for tho newspaper
ho might disohargo mo. That wouldn't do,
especially just now coming on Christmas!
for if I lost my job I don't beliovo I could
get another right away."
Tho reporter promised that ho would not
print hor namo, and sho continued, various
questions being propound as sho went along
with her story.
" There about two hundred girls, as near
as I can toll, who who work in twenty shops
Bowing covers for umbrella frames. This is
our busiest season and there aro no idlo ones
about. Tho ages of tho girls rango from
twelvo to twenty years, but there aro a vory
fow much older thnn twenty. Wo cot an
uvorago of 98 a woolc each for sixty hours'
Work, beginning each day ot 7 o'clook in tho
nionnng and stopping at 0 in tho ovoniug.
"I llvo with my widowed mother, in
Avonno A, in two rooms on tho fifth floor of
n tenement house. Mother tukes in sowing
and iiinkos n fow dollars a woek. Wo pay ijH
a month rent, nnd livo hotter than somo of
thn girls I know who are orphans and depend
entirely on themselves for support. Mother
doos tho housework with a llttlo assistanco
from mo in tho morning and at night.
" Wo livo vury plainly. For breakfast wo
havo coffoo or milk, bread and butter, and
sometimes meat or "ggs. I tako my lunch
along with mo to tho shop. It is generally a
sandwich of bread and corned beef, with a
boiled ogg, and occasionally a ploco of pio or
rako. Our best meal is at supper, when wo
havo a nice steak and bnilod potatoes and a
cup of tea. Of courso wo cannot afford to
get cholco sirloin cuts. Wo soldom havo
pastry at our meals.
"Out of about f 10 a weok wo raanago to
savo enough to buy plain clothes, but wo caul
not savo any money, and that's what worries
us both j for wo can't toll when ono or tho
othor ot us will fall sick. Dear mo, I don't
know what I should do if anything
should happen to mother, or if I should got
sick. But wo aro both quito'woll, though wo
need a vacation badly.
"Do wo annual ourselves? Mostly by
reading until 10 or 11 o'clock. Sometimes an
evening edition of The Would now, or a
wookly story papor. I soldom got an invita
tion to the theatre. Yes, I havo a beau, but
ho is n young workingnian and can't afford to
tako mo out ofton. I sometimes go to a ' sur
prise ' party at somo neighbor's honso or
visit somo of my shop rantas in tho ovoning,
but I rarely go to a ball. Mother doesn't liko
to have mo stay out late, and I don't liko to
loavo her ulouo too long, I am fond ot .dan
ciug. though, particularly waltzing, liko
nearly nil my girl friends.
" In tho Hummor timo I go to two or threo
picnics and onoo or twico to Oonoy Island.
Homo of my shop mates, who are not as par.
ticular as I am, go often to balls nnd hops and
tho thcatros, but they got protty woll tired
nut dancing until 3 or 4 in tho morning and
then getting up nt fl and going to work at 7.
"With fow exceptions tho girls in tho um
brella shops aro poor and cannot afford to
spend their earnings for amusements, and
they aro ahvnys glad to accept almoBtauy
one's invitation to go to n party, a ball or a
theatre."
"Do you belong to any labor organization?"
was nskod.
"Oh, yes," sho replied. "All tho girls in
our trado aro Knights of Labor. Wo boloug
to tho Umbrolla-Makers' Local Assembly. It
helps us to keep up our wages, if nothing
moro. I think that tho men who make tho
sticks nud framoagot $12 a wookoaoh. We
all work tho year round, and that is one
l canon .why our wages are small. I think
that wo girls ought to get moro, for I know
wo earn it. It is said that tho bosses
mako lots of money in the umbrella trado,
and thoy could nQord to givo us more. Oh,
if wo had only a dollar more a weok wo could
savo a littlt, something for an unluoky timo.
There, I guoss I've told you all I know, and
I'll bid you good evening," saying which
sho tripped off toward hor homo, across
town.
From othor sourcos tho reportor learned
thot there are but two shops whoro tho sticks
and framrB undc(ners for umbrellas aro nil
mado. Tho sticks are mostly manufactured
in separate establishments devoted exclus.
ivcly to tho work. The girls who sew tho
covers for umbrellas are suppliod with sow

employers. Tho stick makers havo an inde

A R10T0DB ANARCHIST.
While Intoxicated lie Vf ' Lliu'tfd Lamp
In Men of m. Tloinb,
Frederick Lamanu, 45 yearn old, of 228
West Eighteenth street, who claimed to bo
an Anarchist and a bitter foe to tho militia
and tho pollco, was arraigned in tho Jefferson
Market Pollco Court this morning. Tho
chargo against him was that whllo intoxicated
last night ha created a disturbance and throw
a lighted lamp at a young man named Fred
erick Gchhardt. tho brother of two militia
men, residing at the samo address.
Thn militia uniform worn by tho two Gcb
liardts steins to havo been ou oyesoro to
Lniimun, who openly expressed himself with
what contempt he looked upon them. Dls.
liutes arose frequently botwocn Lamann and
tho Gchhardt brothers regarding tho ex
pressions usod by the former.
At 7 o'clock last night Lamann staggered
into tho house, and whllo stumbling up tho
stairs cursed tho Gobhardt brothers and
threatened all sorts of mischief.
On tho first landing Lamann met Frederick
Gobhardt tho youngest sou in tho family,
and, with a curse, sprang at him. Tho boy
did not weaken, but held his ground, and
when Lamann camo within arm's length
dealt him a blow on tho bridgo of tho noso,
knocking him down.
Lamann aroso to his feet, and, muttering to
himself, ascended tho stairs, entered his
apartment, lit his lamp, and, grasping it in
his right hand, descended to tho floor occu
pied by tho Gobhardts.
When Gebhardt heard Lamann coming,
downstairs, ho opened tho door. No soonor
did he mako an appearanco than Lamann
throw the lighted lamp at him. We dodged
and fortunately escaped being struck. Tho
lamp struck tho wall and broko in several
piocos.
Homo of tho tenants seolng tho oil of tho
lamp burning feared tho houso was on nro
and summoned two policemen, who extin
guished tho flames nnd after a strugglo ar
rested Lamann. Lamanu said in his defence
this morning that ho had been attacked first.
Ho was finod $10.

SHARP AND I1IS WIFE PROSTRATED.
Overcome by the Kvnnto of tho l.nt 1'eir
Iiaya, but Expected to bo All Itlcht Noon.
Thoro was a joyful reunion of tho family of
Jacob Sharp last ovoning at tholr rcsidenco,
854 West Twenty-third street, the ngod couplo
having rojolnod thoir children, Mr. and Mrs.
Solms, and thoir grandson, Goorgo Sharp,
after an absonco of fivo months. But n reac
tion sot in with both Mr. nnd Mrs. Sharp ns
tho excitement of tho eventful day died
away, nnd thoy nre both prostrated to-dny.
Dr. Alfred L. Loomis, tho family physi
clan, called last evening. Ho found Mr.
Sharp much depressed, nnd ordorcd him to
bod, saying that ho must havo absoluto quiot
nnd rost for at least a woek. Thou Sharp
may begin to tako drives In Central Park.
Ho will go to his farm near Homo as soon as
it is safo.
Ono can woll imaglno that tho good wifo of
Sharp is happier to.duy than sho has beon for
many months, but she is hardly less affected
by tho oxciting ovents of tho past fow dayB
than her husband, and sho, too, is confined
to hor bed. Her physician thinks that a day
or two of quiet will bring hor around to her
normal, cheorful and enorgetio self again.
Dr. Loomis said this morning: " Mr. Sharp
has been a sick man constantly in my caro
for threo years. He has n heart affection, and
if ho 1b taken off his digitalis for twenty-four
hours ho goes all to piocos. Warden Keating
mado ovcry thing at tho' jail as pleasant for Mr.
Sharp as could bo, and had ho boon able to
obtain pure air thoro I do not think his con
finement would have injured him much. He
can nover bo a woll man, as young mon liko
you and i uso tho term, but ho will be as
right as ho could bo, under" any. cincum
Btancos, in a short timo."
LOW AND COLE.
Bass rintt'a Itevtsod Plana for tho Org-B.nl-1

It is said that Boss Platt has agreed upon
his legislative slate. Tho general opinion of
Bopublican statesmen is that Sonator Low
will be ,'hosen Prcsidont pro tomporo of tho
Senate and Fremont Colo, of Schuyler,
Speaker of tho Assembly.
Sonator Fnssott has no chanco of bciug
eloctod President of tho Senate. Several
Platt Senators havo informed the boss that
thoy would not support Fassett, nnd ho will
probably withdraw from tho contest. This
action on his part would insure tho election
ot Senator Low.
Tho throo ltepubllcnn Assemblymen from
Now York City Morgan of tho Seventh Dis
trict, Hamilton, of the Llovonth, and Crosby,
of tho Twenty-first District aro said to ho
plodgod to vote for Bremont Colo for
Speaker. Then it is said (hat tho four Kings

TlIEj HA8SAYAMPA MINING EXCITEMENT
ONLY A RAILROAD BOOM.
Mining Kxperta Advlso Capitalist Not lo
Inveat In tho New Cold 1'lrlda The
miner. Only n I'ocliet that Will Not I'ny
fur Development Whnt a Mine Owner
from the 1'reacott Dlatrlct Kara.
Tho more investigation given that alleged
" grent gold bonanza," in tho HaBsayampa
region, near Prescott, Ari., of which fabu
lous stories have been circulated, tho moro
reason is thero for tho belief that the less ono
has to do with tho schemo, tho better off ho
Will bo.
When tho yarn first appeared, thoro seemed
somo reason for a partial bolicf in its
claims. Now, however, from the opinions of
mining experts, as well as capitalists, who
havo visited that country recently, thero can
bo but a single infereuco, and that is that tho
story Is told for effect, with tho view of get
ting short-sighted capitalists to pluco money
in the property, for tho benefit of a fow claim
owners, who want to boom tho ledgo and
then get rid of it.
Gulling tho public is tho favorite pastimo
of many corporations whoso inducements
havo boon just as elaborate as aro offered in
this " richest of all modern bonanzas." But
gulling tho public has been carried so far,
and tho honest portion of the press has fol
lowed theso concerns so sharply, that thoro
seems little likelihood that tho temptation
offered by tho statements so full of glittering
generalities will hoar fruit.
Ono peculiarity of this mining claim, as a
well-known man says, is that tho further one
is from tho mining regions tho moro valuable
is tho property pictured to him. Tho de
spatches, he says, from Prescott, doscriptivo
of tho region, grow more glowing as they
travoIEastor West, 'whllo tho valuo of tho
" find " likowiso increases tho further tho de.
spatehes go. So that when tho l'aciflo Coast
is reached thn original announcement of cer
tain valuo is increased almost tenfold.
" Experienced miners," wild tho expert,
" are not fooled by tho stories of fabulous
wealth found. Thero probably aro somo who
fool that tho richest mining region is somo
spot whoro thoy nro not, and immediately
they rush off, to other diggings which givo
partial promise of rich returns.
"To my mind," continued tho speaker,
"tho story printed regarding tho groat
wealth in Hassayompa is simply a big adver
tisement for an Arizona railroad which is
being built near thero. Thoro may bo good
ore in that region, but nowhere near tho
value reported. But any boom that can bo
started now will help the road, and that is
tho thing desired. In fact, nil tho latest dis
patches from that country have glowing Bide
storics of tho now railroad lino. Thou, if
tho story is truo, so much tho worse for tho
mine, for tho richer tho ore tho less thero is
likely to be of it.
" Occasionally prospectors find rich
pockot3 and then quantities of very low
grado ore, but suoh fancy or specimen
mines, ns they nro callod, aro poor invest
ments. Thero is no valuo to n mine until
that valuo has been proven, and iu tho
Iircsont instauco thoro is certainly no proof
o substantiate tho claims mado."
United States Assayor II. G. Torroy, of
Torroy & Eaton, SO Wall street, had little
faith in the circulated stories of this great
find, and would not advise investment until
a thorough examination had been mado by a
competent and honest engineer. He thought
that tho discovery was only a pocket, which
would not provo as substantial as was as
sorted. Thero woro lots of them, ho said, in
that region. Tho story reminded him of a
mino in Halifax, whoro in a fow diggings
over $15,000 in gold wero taken, Then tho
wholo thing gavo out and tho mining property
became useless.
"It might bo a good idrn to telegraph to
somo mining export located near Prescott,"
ho added, rather satirically, and while no
did not speak tho words, his countenance
said, " it would probably savo somo one lots
of monoy."
" Don't put any faith in any newspaper
article about tho property," he said. " For
niy part, from tho tonor of tho original story
of tho mine's wealth, I would havo nothing
to do with tho property."
C. A. Stctofoldt, mining engineer, of 18
Broadway, commended tho work of Tub
Wohld. " Tho story," he said. " looks fishy.
It does not augur woll for n mining property
to contain such pockets, for tho best mines
aro thoso that turn out steadily oro that will
assay 420, $25 aud $30 to tho ton. Anything
under tho sum is possible but this story is by
no means prohnhio. I would not advise an
iuvestmont. Then, again, put no confidence
iu tho now spaper articles that tend to boom a
mine. They are unreliable."
J. A. Macl'horsou, Chairman of the Mining
Comiuittco of tho Now York Consolidated
Stock nnd Petroloum Exchango, thought
that if tho figures representing tho vnluo of
tho first wore divided by two, or throo, tho
result would ho n nearer approximate of its
intrinsic worth. Ho put llttlo faith iu tho
claim that tho pocket would dovolop richly,
nnd advised a rigid investigation of tho prop
erty bofoio risking any money ou it.
llornco Jones, with J. W. Goddnrd & Sons,
importers, C1C Broadway, thought that tho
holo thing was pure romance. Ho returned
but recently from a trip through tho Has
Rayumpa region, nnd ho owns mining prop
erty iu thnt section of tho country. Ho be
lieves that there is nothing in tho fabulous
claims that ore being mado about tho Pres
cott mines, and to him it looked ns though
some miner had struck n lodge, found this
pocket of presumed wealth and now wanted
to boom his claim for all that it was worth.
Tho Hassayampa region, ho says, has beon
workod over more frequently and thoroughly
than any other portion of Arizona, with a
fow exceptions. Early miners to tho vicinity
got tho S.UI10 distinction as did tho California
mineisiu M9.
" It is claimed that they can trace the vein
a milo," said Mr. Jones in n tono of sarcasm,
" and see evidences of gold. It's nonsense.
Thoy can do nothing of the kind. Thoy havo
not workod tho property long enough to do
any such thing. In tho mines I own in that
region, minors ono day found a remarkably
rich pocket. It panned out hundreds of
dollars iu gold. But that was all. It petered
to nothing. It w as liko n kidney in tho vein,
and practically valueless. No doubt it is the
samo caso with tho Prescott mines. Thero is
probably a pocket thoro, nowhere near tho
valuo claimed for it, howovcr, and it will
piobubly meet with a fato similar to that
other pockot."

producing " Macbeth," which it has been
tho " dream of his life " to do. At first ho
hod arranged to present the play nt Niblo's
