Ktf For the purposo of ascertaining tho dan. H Cers attendant upon navigation by reason of K tho drifting logs whioh composed the monster H raft which went to plccos directly in tho Hf) .track of incoming transatlantic steamers last H.' Week, a Wobld reporter interviewed sovoral Hif of the officers of theso vessels. B Gapt. Bently, of the Guion lino stoamship H' "Wisconsin, was not on board, but First Kf Officer Edwin Fairfield, who has mado 187 Kr voyages across the Atlantic elghty.fi vo of HV which woro mado in his present ship, was Hvl aboard, and he bald that ho did not liko tho Kl idea of encountering so many logs. Ej True, tho remnants of tho raft woro found M'J about eighty miles south of tho route of out. K- word bound vessels, but thoro would bo no K doubt that they would get into tho Gulf K$ Stream and perhaps break a few propellers. BL- He thought that Capt. McCalla'n btatomont k that tho wash from tho stern of an incoming V- ship wonld throw a log away from a vessel, K, was correct. Ho had seen many floating H'i- spars disposed of in that way. H Second Officer Lewis thought that thero KJ 'would be little danger unless it bo that a great number of the logs got entauglod in a B field of thin ice, when they would be just as dangerous, to his mind, as in tho original HsKf xait a The Wisconsin sails to-day and may en. K counter somo of Mr. Leary's timber. K' The Anchor line stcamsliip Furncssia was v towed to her dock from tho lowor bay this MH morning. Capt. Hodderwick said : E'H. " We did not encounter a singlo log of that C'HS raft, although wo kept a sharp lookout for it t'F' and passod the spot where it was cubt adrift BH' yesterday. KB " I suppose that it is getting ready to tako ' a trip to Iceland or tho Bay of Biscay, us suits WR the pleasure of the stream. , H . " There may bo danger to propeller screws rH from bo many logs, for they will certainly Cl, float in patches, but the sterns of all tho bgpjB steamships are 6o hharp that there is no dan.

V" Hi It was 11 o'clock when tho gang-plank w as W raised to the deck of tho Ounardor Gallia, VWSi which had just arrived at her dock after a fdBlMssW fair passago. Tho reporter hurried aboard and found that gonial old salt, Capt. Murphy. u) in his cabin. HR Capt. Murphy had not heard of tho raft, f but when told of its sizo and its breaking up Hfr be said j "It'll be an infernal nuisance, PK; and raise the devil with propellers, par. BjHrf ticularly if a vessel encounters a few JHr logs chained together.

Thuy have been charged with various crimes. Including horto-atoallng, and nnally a vlgllanco coinmltteo was organlzod to drlvo them out or the county. Tho Terrya, with their Inends.oterawo I the lead era of the "regulating "movement nud tho out Ian a held their ground. Iwo weeks ago ono of tho Terrys was shot from ambnsh and killed. Hoou after this one Weeks, a member of tho antl.lerry faction, was shot to pieces by unknown assassins. A few days after tho death of Weeks, (iarrei, a friend of the Terrys, waa fired upon by Uraut Wag ner and Wm. Ambrose, who had secreted them Belves behind a tree.

After the com pany had issued the order to lay on tbe conduc tors tho patrons of the line pleaded with tho com. puny to rescind tbe order, but with no effect. Then a tchruin was Inaugurated to compel them to do what they had before refused to do. Tho prime mover In tho acneine was Peter Pan), a South Bide carpenter. He got Into a car one night, being the only paatenger at the time. Tho driver rang the register, tut Paul sat motionless In his seat. The car went some distance, aud the driver glanced back e cry second or two ut the change-box to lo cate the pataonger's nickel. It failed to snow up. Finally he opened the door and said: "Ulster, you1" e forgot to pay your fare. " 1 1 "No, 1 havenv' said Paul. "Why don't yuu put It la the box then V de manitod the driver augrlly, l don't have to; here's a nickel for the fare: If you want It come and get It." "You know I can't do that," said the driver. "Ita agin the rules." "Then you don't get It," calmly replied Paul. " You'll either pay, get oft the car or I'll have you arrested. "' " do on," was the reply. At this moment a policeman hove In sight and tbe driver halloed to him. Tno driver explained. "Throw him on tho car and I'll attend to him." said the officer. "I can't touch him there." The dm cr drove on In dlsguat without his nickel In a day or two Paul's feat had been noled all over that pflrt of town. An organized plan followed. It was a nightly occurrence for twenty or twcnly-nve houth Minneapolis cltizcna to get on a car aud to rofutotopay. 'Ibo result was that a day or two later conductors wero a feature on that lino again. And that was how the Houth Bide citizens brought the Minneapolis btreel Hallway to terms.

Israelii, to Tne wonr.n.1 WlBIIINOTOKi Dec J7. To-day ticro are clghty-nlno rosea In the wreath of years worn by Mr. W. W. Corcoran, thclnoted philanthropist ot thin rlty, and the event Is being very quietly celebrated owlnz to Mr. Corcoran' enfeebled state of health. He his not fully re covered from hi Illness of Sunday, but Is cheerf nl, and will, undoubtedly, be as well as usual ln a few days. Mr. Corcoran received numerous costly presents and great quantities of flowers. Us waa particu larly pleased with a handsome floral piece from tbe White House and some choice exotics sent by Mr. Joseph rulltzer, of New York. Yesterday I called upon him ln his library. An American carle, life gift of one of his friends, looted down from the top of ono of the book-caaes ns he talked, and raro old portraits, curious carv ings and mementos of persons and travel met the eye at every turn. Beside the eagle wis a framed photograph of Mrs. Cleveland, presented by her to Mr. Corcoran, and above this was an oll-palntlog of hit old friend, George Feabody, who Is perhap his only rival ln tho world's history of money-making and philanthropy. A little fnrther on Is a por trait of Humboldt, and on another case stands a hron70stAtuctteof Frederick William of I'ruasta. Mr. Corcoran dined with this King In 1815, In com pany with Von Humboldt, and ho bought this statuette the day before he left Berlin. The statuette of Daniel Webster near this repre sents one of tho dearest friends of his life and Wob-ajj;- Iter penned the last letter f n eTer wrote to Mr. Wat'. J Ml Corcoran. In one of his 1(7(7 at yfij speeches he sild that Cor JjfeJ ijf ooran, ahove all tho men Tjr' ho ovor knew, had done --a&Z ) his duty, and It was ln J789y I thls very house that Web V fp v at" "ved when he was I" J ' Secretary of State, w. w. coitcoiuif. It waa bought for him by his Boston friends, and when Web ster left tbo Cabinet he found that be could not afford to keep up so expensive an estab lishment and Mr. Corcoran became Its owner. He also becamo Daniel Webster's banker, anil though the Information does not come from blm, I am told that Webster went to Corcoran whenever he was In need of money and that his notes were alwjjs cashed. Ashe grew older his debts became greater, and one day, after Webster had mado his extraor dinary speech on tho Missouri Compromise In the Senate, Mr. Webster received a package of papers from Mr. Corcoran containing tho cancellation of all his Indebtedness to blm. Tho Corcoran man sion Is grander now than It was when WehBtcr dined ami wined the diplomats within It. Wings have been added to It and It bas been so changed that It appears more like tho country homo of some French nobleman and It la ono of the most beautiful pri vate honsis ln the United States.

Its style Is that of tho Italian ltcnatssancc, and tt Is rich, but not gnudy, and both exterior and In terior show exquisite taste. Brown-stouo steps lead to a wide front door and a pull at tho silver bell brings a servant to tno visitor. Tho en. trance hall produces an effect upon you like that of an Italian palace, with Ita wide white pillars, and tho vlttu which you get from the north corridor and the grand salon at ihe left, Mnlshcd In white and gold, reminds yon ot tne rooms of Fontalncble iu or Ver sailles. Tula room UBed to be the plctnre gallery, and a few flue, paintings still remain upon lis walls. Its ceiling la 87 feet high and It Is about three times the lenath of an ordluary parlor, or 44 feel, aud It Is 23 feet wide. An antique oablnet stands against the wall, Its Inner doors panelled with gems from the old masters. Mirrors reflect the satin-covered furniture from different sides ot tho room, and there is an air of quiet comfort pervading the whole which you do not dndln rich men's houses whore less taate is displayed. At the right there Is a par lor with a eel. lug fourteen feet high, aud this room Is equally well furnished. Its windows look out upon the White House, and I caught a glimpse of Mllla's statuo of Jacktou through them a I posted on to Mr. Corcoran' library. U1S srLEKDlD UMURT. ThU library Is finished ln natural wood and I bo papered that It appears to be walled with old Eng lish oak. Old oat chairs and aofas aro cosily scat tered aoout it. An oak desk eotered with Christ mas presents stands iu the centre and richly carved oak bookcases Hue tho walls. Tho library celling Is twenty-eight feet high and Its ltul light comes from the glass ln the vaulted roof. '1 ho window are ot stained glass and tho fnrnlturo waa made In 1'arK 1 ho rich oak mantel, which reaohe to the ceiling, has carved figures which would honor tho great cathedral at Antwerp, aud thla mantel alone cost 12,000, u baa figure representing History and a Hungarian huuter on each side of Its mirror, and ihu round clock, which stand over the fireplace, 1 set Into Its centre. The bookcases are full of rare volumes ot the classics of all lauguagea. lhcy are chiefly English editions aud they oomprlto over Ave thou, and vol ume. Tho most valuable books among them, howover, are tho bound private letter of Mr. Cor coran. There are fonrteen ot these and they are great fat tomes, each of which Is nearly the size of a dictionary. These contalu letters from Woester, Cluy, Calhoun. Fillmore, Tyler, Buchanan, Amoa Kendall and other ujted men of our past history, and with these are hound letters from tho moat note l scientists and litterateurs. There are many private letter from Von Humboldt among them, and they comprise a correspondence whloh will make a fortune for Mr. Corcoran' biographer. He hat been during two-thirds of a century on the most Intimate terms with Presidents, Senators, foreign Ministers and others, and there are few noted men wno have come to America whom he haa uot know u well. He values tnose letters above money, and he has, I understand, published a uumber of them ln connection with some reminis cences, and these be will give at bis death to bis grandchildren.

Large, full-featured and handsome, Its forehead Is broad, high and Intellectual. Its nose Is straight and tbe mouth is Arm, but pleasant. Ills Jaw is as strong as that of Sam ltaudall, but It Is tuoro clean in Its cut, and the lines at out It are more gentle. Mr. Corcoran's uiustachu Is of frosted silver, and his features show all the signs of cultnrc. Ho dresses In exquisite taato, and thero Is no belter picture of the fashionable gentleman of to-day. His clothes are of the finest material and the latest cut, though there Is nothing snobbish or striking about them, und his only ornumeut is tho corul piu la bis dark necktie. TIIK CORCORAN ART GAU.EHT. Born In Georgetown, his father was Miyorof that vlllugo when Washington had no existence, and Mr. corcor.in holds among his valued posscs tilons to-day tho house In w ilch ho first saw light, and In his will ho has expressed a desire that the old homo be kept Iu tho lumlly. He started bust, uexslifo very young, having nud a tasto of classical education aud a short term at tho Georgetown Col lege. At sixteen years oi ago, when his father had been appointed by President Madison Poatmnster of Georgetown, no left achool, contrary to his father'a wleocs, and went Into the drv-goods store of his brothers, James und I nomas Corcoran. His ability became so apparent that they established blm two years later lu a atoro ot his own, and ho succeeded woil until tho panlo ot ltsa, when on ono day JUS, 000 of hla bills receivable went to protest. 'Ihe result was no failed. Ho was at this time twenty-tlvo years of age, und he compromised with somu of his creditors at to per cent, , and from others received a discharge In full. In 1B47, however, he hud mado a second fortune, and ho then computed the Interest due from himself and bis brothers to each of these creditors, and, adding this to tho principal, he paid the sum la full, which waa then more than double the original amount. From dry goods he went to banking, brat us an employee und afterwards as p irtner, aud for years the firm of Corcorau & Itlgga Mood as high here us that ot the Holhschllds in London. He took charge ot the Mexican loans wneu no one dec would handle them, aud placed a part of them ln six of the wealthiest houses In Lon don. He bought United Mates securles himself and made a fortune out of their rlso when the Now York bankers predicted that tho country was going to ruin. He has dealt largely lu real estate, and his secretary, Mr. Hyde, tells me that he can do buBlncs as well to-day us at any period of his Hie, and that one of his characteristic!) Is tho having of an Imtncduto answer to any proposition, busluc-a or otherwise, und ot knowing his own mlud and saying It. lu IBM the firm of Corcoran A Itlggs was dis solved, aud ut this tlmo Mr. Corcorau retired from uctlve bualuoss. During the last gcncrution he lias only attended to his own fortune, to the cultivation of nls mind and to tho disposition of hit millions to charity. I asked him to-dav whether ho thought the ohancts for making a fortune were as good now as when be v as yuuug. He replied: "'1 hey are better, 'ihe world offers everything to men uf brains, honesty und Industry, aud tho young man of this charucicr never hud such oppor tunities u lie has now. If yuu asked my auvlco, however, to young men, I would urgo them to go West to tho new States and Territories, for no prophet Is without honor save ln his own country, und tbe yonng man la shackled by being the son of his father, no matter how great his father may havo becu. I say this notwithstanding tho fact tbat I wat born within a mile of w hero I now live, and that such success as 1 have made ha been under different conditions. " "How many Presidents, Mr. Corcoran, canyon remember?" T11K PRESIDENTS US UA3 KNOWN. ' I have known all tho Presidents since Wash ington. 1 was bom, you know, tbo year before Washington died, and I saw Jefferson while he wub lu the White House. His business agent, Mr.Johti Barnes, rci,blcd at Georgetown, uud Presldeut Jcllersnn often rodo over to sco blm. Ho sat hi fiery borae well, and ho would gallop up tbe street and throw the bridle over the post In front of tho store. 1 afterwards visited htm at Montlcello and becsmo somewhat ucqualuted with his great ability. I saw John Adams at his homo ln IJulnoy, Mass. I remember ho was lying on the louuge wheu I came In. Ho gave me hla hand and, durlug my chat with him, I found bis mlud bright and clear. He referred to hi old age and, pointing to his weakened body, said: ' My physical house Is out 'ot orucrand tho landlord he warne I mo that he will make no further repairs. ' President Madison I knew well during his Presidency and 1 have vitltrd htm at Monti cller. Dolly Madison and myself wero acquainted fur years, an I John t'ulncy Adams did hi. banking business with me. As lor such young men as Polk, 1'ierco and Buchanan, I of course knew them, and during the tour I took through Europe, In 18M, President Fllmore was with inc. " And so Mr. Corcoran wtut on, aud his whole talk of the afternoon seemed baaed on tho piln clpleof "Malice toward none and charity lor all. " He seemed at ptace with all tne.world, and ho has one of the kluuett hearts tbat ever ruled a human bouI. Heisthegreatcat giver iu the world to-day, and his enefactlons aro more profuse as the years goon. The demands upon mm, however, would est up a fortune, bigger than the surplus In the Treasury, and Mr. Hyde, his secretary, tells me that the doctors havo forbidden him to sec hla beg ging letters, Mr. Corcorau'a private sccreiary has grown old In his service. Ills hair 1 at whtto as that of his chief, and bo has attended to hi employer's business for forty year. He tells me that the letters now In by tbo hundred a week, and that tbe major part of them never go further than tho waste-basket. If Mr. Corcoran sees them he Is kept awake at night by their ttorlea of woe, and they have Increased soot lato years that It 1 Impos sible to answer manr of them. TUE CALLS MAUK ITOS tftX. Among those received within tho last few days la one from a yonng Englishman who wauted f .',000 to make up a mortage ln Ills account with his em ployer, an I another Is from a Frenchman, who coolly aaked 6,000 francs by tcturu mail. A Virginia girl incloted a slip of silk and requested thut Mr. Corcorau send u urets-pattern like it for a ball whloh waa to tuko place next week, and a Delaware woman, who staled that an huihand Is worth t&o,lU, wants Mr, Corcoran to give her enough to make her Independent, to that she can draw cheeka without bothering her husband. Sho say she will to glad totiavo Mr. Corcoiancomo aud visit her at her homo during the peach season and enjoy her fruit. Another lady laconically says, "I want a barrel of mesa pork und 1 want you to send It to me." This letter amused Mr. Corcoran, and ho sent Ihe pork as requested. The rcauit was that the next mail brought a request for another barrel. And so It goes on. It will be easily seen that It tslmpoMiole to supply such demands, and that any fortune, how ever large, would soon bo dlsdpated by them. i Qulnu'e Caso Agiiln Postponed.

Newt Vorce'a Desperate Btrntegem Which Cost a Wlieep-Herder Ills Life. IFrom fAt Dtnrcr Jfrpult'ean. r. A. Say ward, one of tho big cattlemen of tho Beer Trail country, came Into tho city last night on the y o'clock train, and told of the ahootlng whloh had occurred at Itoblnson'a sheep ranch yes terday mornlug. IIo said that Wlloy Adams, James Adams and a man by tno name of McJohnson got onto Vorce'a trail on Saturday night, and finally located him In a little dugout where tho herders ' ' batched." In a corral less than a hundred yarda from the dugout his horso was standing saddled and bridled and ready for Instant use. Tbe throe men who were afterVorce toot up a position oe hlnd a sheep-corral and patiently waited for the desperado to make his appearanco. Tbe boors Woro slowly away, and not till dawn was there any sign of life about the place. At that time, howover, a Bhcop-herder opened tho door of the littlo dugout or cablu and carried some feed to tho horse, ltetornlng to tho cabin again, everything was tiulet for a time. The guards naturally sup posed that within a fow minutes Vorce would ap pear, and, while they were talklnir the matter over lu hushed tones, the door ouce more opened, and a man attired exactly lu the co-itumo usually worn by tho desperado, even to the broad sombrero, made a rush for tho horse. A second later the crash of three rifles rang out and tbe man fell dead. It was not until nttor thoy had fired that they saw another man runulng to a littlo dugout used as iv stable, and where three horses wero tied. He bad a rltle lu his hand, and ther were amazed to rocognizo Vorce, and only then to realize that tbat they had shot tho wrong man. As one of their number was stcpplnz out to see where the dead man lay, a bullet Bped by him and he beat a hasty relrett. Tho men then held a Bhort conlhltailon. Tmre was no denying tso fact that Vorce had tho better of them at mat time. It was dangerous for them to show their hoads, but still they were re solved tbat they would not give the desperado up now that ho was almost within their grasp. They must bae help, but how to get tt was tbe question. None of them cared to take tho chances of a run of fully a quarter of a mile across tbo open country before ihey would bo out ot range of vorce'a rifle. It was finally dccldtd thut they should draw cuta to nee who should go for assistance This was done and It fell to MoJohnon. He left a few parting vtordawlth his companions, tightens I his belt about hut waist and then fled like the wind. Vorce was evidently expecting some move ot this kind, for when UlcJohiison nas well away from shelter he began pumping tbe lead after blm. Tho two Adamses then opened a fusillade on the dugout, but they could not draw any shots away from McJohnson. The ballets struck all about him, but fortunately he escaped. He went Immediately to Seer Trail and tele graphed lor assistance. r I.nwjcrs to Have a Iteceptlon.
