Nellie Bly Starts Out on a Wondrous
Flying Trip Around the Globe.
Thirty Thousand Miles Through
Many Countries and Baok to
New York.
To Sorpass Jules Yerne's Dream of
Rapid Transit Round tbe Earth.
Tho World's " Woman Writer Em
barks on the Augusta Victoria.
It's Her Own Adventure and She Ii
Plucky and Confident.
"I never wept In my life, but I came very near
having a good cty when I bado my mother good
by. " f aid Mini Nellie Blv to an Evesiko World
reporter, as she stood on thehniricane deck of
the Hamburg steamship Victoria Aususta this
Miss Bly sailed away from New York thU
morning, bound for New York.
She will put a girdle 'round the earth, and will
tee all climates and peoples ero she returns.
She will give thanks at Ismailia and spend
Christmas at Hone Kong.
The new year will dawn upon her at Yolto
hama, in the land of tho Mikado, and on Jan.(
22 her great brown eyes will look again upon
hernatircland and she will enter Columbia's
domain by the Golden Gate.
A Ave days' ride across this broad continent,
and the spirited, plucky and adventurous little
Bly will touch the soil of this metropolis, after a
complete journey around the clobe.
Tnr Evisiso Wom.n reporter who bade Miss
Bly Rond-by this morninc is only a man, and as
he turveyed tho slight, willowy, girlish figure
of tho little circumnavigator clad iu a closest
ting travelling gown of dark blue camel's hair
plaited with a soft golden stripe, with here and
there a stray thread of red, and a dark blue
waist with puffed sleeves, it fairly took his
breath away.
He scanned the wide-eyed, girlish face, and
found it full of smiles aud with just thefaintest
business-like knitting of tho smooth, lowbrow.
The braid of black hair, doubled on the neck
and tied with a bit of ribbon, and one or those
absurd littlo tourists' cap in fawn-colored
check.with useless car-laps tied over the crown,
oomplcled the pictuie.
" fan I ho of any service to you. Miss Bly?"
suggested tho reporter, adding: "To get yonr
I luggage aboard or '
"Oh! My luggage' is aboard, thank you.
I brought it on myself. It is down in my state
room now.
"Oh: and that remiuds me. I want you to
witness my will. I don't expect anything to
happeu: bnt then if something should happen,
you know."
Therenoiter. II. C. Tarrott and another gen
tleman followed tho fair traveller down to the
stateroom in solomu procession.
Somehow it seemed the thing to be solemn to
these three men, either of thorn many years
older than the girlish testatrix, and at least two
of them old enough to bo her father.
"b'ee:" exclaimed tho blltho Miss Bly. "I
have the bridal chamber. Isn't it a marvel of
commodionsnoss 1 Why 1 don't know what a
small person like me can do witli so much room.
Tho bed's a bunk, but I just delight in cramping
myself oil up and sleeping in a hunk. '
Miss Bly gravely produced an air-tight ink
well and unscrowod tho top. Then sho drew
from a pocket in hor gown a slip of notepapcr,
folded m that tho dozen linos comprising her
" will " were hidden, ami these words appeared;
1TB 1'ONTEXTH a BKcriEr.
"Higned. published and declared to be my
last will and testament at the City of Ilobokcn,
Htato of Nfnv Jersey, this 14th day of Novem
ber, 1HRII."
Miss Bly wrote hor name in signature, and
then the witnesses signed it, too. Tho contents
of this will wcie a secret, but tho reporter saw
the last word, which was the only one on tho
last line.
It was "mother."
Miss Illy sighed as she sealed the envelope
containing her will and addressed it to her
outfit yon mr. oiieat JornSEV.
"Now, Miss Bly, toll me what you carry for
baggage and what Is your outfit," rcsnmed the
feportei.in an endeavor to relieve the oppressive
solemnity the signing of tho will had occa
sinned. Miss Bly laughed a clear, musical laugh.
Ilium it i,"she ejaculated in alndicroni
Jv. pointing slim, glood linger at a little
'' ii bag of leather in a cornsr. It was 14
liirlics long. i,y ii by io inches.

tied on;

nn Miss Bly, when asked If she bad provided
herself with a niodiclne chest, only laughed de
lislvcly. "Noteen a troche. " she repliod. "I
was never sick an hour in my life, and I shall
not bo sick now."
Her questionor at this moment noticed a
queer baud of gold on Miss Bly's loft thumb.
" Whatla that for V" ho asked.
There was not a blush nor an expression of
any suspicion that tho rlug was odd or tho Idea
whimsical as she replied:
"That Is the savage in me. lam Just super
stitious enough to believe in that ring. I woro
it when I applied for employment at The Wonui
ofllec, and tho only thrco days that it has been
absent from my finger I had hnd luck. I would
not remove It for anything. I shall not bo sick.
If I am I can get all the nasty mcdlclnol want
from tho ship's doctor."
Miss Bly's only jewelry was this thumb ring,
a leather bracelet, with a watch chain attach
ment; a chain bracelet of gold, and a pair of
crescent loops of gold iu her ear.
Ascending again to the hurricane deck tho
bright-faced little newspaper woman found
there a dozen friends from the newspaper world,
and there was much shaking lianOa and good
bys, but Miss Bly was the liveliest of all.
nr.n Morn En tosode must bctfice.
"Dear mo!" she exclaimed, tho whlto brow
corrugating again. "Thero are people all
around me, but nobody speaks English. The
purser and the stewardess do. though, and I
spent some weeks in Mexico once for The
World, 'and though I could not speak Spanish,
I managed to get along all light. I can speak
no language but my own English, but pshaw !

Capt. Albers was brought forward and intro
duced to lus fattest passenger, and the passen
gers, standing in groups atalittledistancc, gazed
in amazement aud admiration at the almost
littlo girl who, of her own notion, was setting
nut to beat the wonderful record of Jules
Verno's hero, Fhlncas Fogg, who went "Around
the World in Eishty Days" in the author's
"I'vo never been out of sight of land," said
Miss Bly, "but I have no qualms of fear. I
may be seasick, but I'll get over it. and I know
I shall enjoy the trip. 1 am going to mako a
record for The World for somebody to beat,
if they cau."
There was a lull in the hustling, bustling of
tho stevedores. The luggage and cargo was all
shipped, and I), no. tho hour for departure, had
atrived. The bo's'n's shrill whistle piped all
laudsmcn ashore.
Miss Ely's dainty little glnvo of undi eased kid
gave the hand of the reporter a hearty squeeze,
and tho faiewell was said. The thteo stacks of
tbe Augusta Victoria emitted puffs of black
smoke, and tho great ship steamed majestically
out into the North lliver and passed down the
bay and out through tbe Narrows into the
When 'twas decided that Miss Bly should make
the trip rhe was all animated enthusiasm in a
moment, and in another her pretty head was
burled in "guides" And her girlish face
knotted in thoughful ittidy of '.'routes. "
After an hour's study she announced: "I can
beat any record. I think I oan do it in seventy
five days. I can go by the Hamburg steamer to
Southampton, then to London, then on the
India mail to Calais. Paris. Turin, then to Brin
dlsi. and from thero the steamship to Cathay;
then Ismailia, Aden, Colombo, in tho Island of
Ceylon.Fenang and (Singapore In Farther India;
thon Hong Kong, the Biltish city on the Chinese
island, and then to Yokohama.
"I willairivo at Yokohama about New Year's
aud sail for 'Frisco on Jan. 7, reaching Now
York Jan. '27. That is in just soventv-tivo
days. '
Having determined on tho trip Miss Nellie was
thoughtful. Then she remarked demuiely,
' Now the first thing for me to do is to go home
to my mother and have a good night's sleep."
And that she did. Then next day she began
her picpaiatious. Uhorinloy, the man dress
maker, builded her camel's hair gown In a day.
She procured a watch which notes the hour
fiom I to '.'4 o'clock, and by this sho will be able
to compute her exact tiavelling time. By her
own little lepeatershe will know what's tho time
o'day by the time lu vogue wherever sho may
be located, and when sho gets home again she
will find that she has beaten Now York to the
extent of a day or two, for sho will constantly
tiavel towaids tho lising sun.
The little traveller will pass through the fogs
and chilly atmosphere of Labrador and New
foundland and the thrice-heated calms of tho
lied Bea anil Farther India. MIbs Bly will pass
among tho English, Gciman, French, Spanish,
Aiabiaus, Hiudoos, Chinese and Japanese, and
lenders of The World may confidently look for
the elaboration of many note mado iu the little
books of the fair "newspaperwoman."
Miss Bly, when her journey Is completed,
will havo travelled nearly :)0,U00 miles, or at
the rate of 410 miles a day ocr land and sea
for every day of herabsencu fioui her nook iu
tho " city room " of Tnr. World.
The first ciicumnavigatnr of the globe was
Magalhaeus. afterwhom tho StraiUof Magoll' n
weio named. Ho was a l'nrtugucso and sot out
on his joumey in 1510 with tho idea that tho
world was a fiat surface and that lu timo ho
would reach the edge and find out what was iu
tho abyss into which a straggler might tumble
if he ventured too near it. The compass
was then unin.enteil.and the ship was steered by
tho stars.
Capt. Francis Drake, a bold, bad buccaneer,
out for what he could find, sailed fiom England
in 1577, passed around Capo Horn and across
the IJacluo and back to his native hsnd.
Capt. Cook did it at about tho sameltime, aud
his chronicle shows that he was three years on
the cruise. He touched at Terra del Fingo, the
"Land at Fire." Tahiti, New Zealand, Van
Dlemen's Land. Austi alia, the Friendly Island,
where they didn't cat you, but jubI tobbedyou
and turned you loose; New Hebrides, New Calo
donla, which has been for many yeais the
French penal colony; the fiandwlch Islands,
which had not then a King who had learned tho
seductive game of draw-roker. and Western
North America.
Since Cook' day the globc-tiotteis havo be
come an aimv. The most famous of the Ameri
can circumnavigators was the late Secretary nf
State. William H. Seward, who wrote his ad
ventures iu an 800-page tome. Gen. Grant
did it en suite, and Jay Gould aud tho Vander
bills do it now and then, but Nellie Bly is prob
ably the first of her i ex to undertako it alone
and unprotected, and it is no hazard to predict
that her tour of tbe world for The World will
become the moat famous iu the annals of travel.
Bbe carries with her the best wlshss or a mill-
ion leaders and admirers, and they will heartily
welcome her on her icturn.

Another Day of Useless

The League Busy Settling a Ques
tion of Percentages.
Next It Will Considor tho Admission
of Brooklyn and Cincinnati.
At a Into hnu this afternoon it was whispered
ery loudly about tho Fifth Avenue Hotel that
next year would seo ten clubs iu thn National
League and a guarantee of 4 0 per cent of
gait receipts to visiting clubs.
The American Association, in annual meeting
at the 'itt!i Acuuo Hotel, was still without a
Picsident for next 3 car when the sotsinn began
this morning.
Tho delegate cot together again ycstelday
after the break of the afternoon, but continued
with the same old tic voto for Plielus, of Louis
ille. and KintithotT, of Kansas City.
This mtiiniug the name of W. II. Volt.:, staff
correspondent nf the Philadelphia I'rrss. was
mentioned ns tint t of a ciunpinmlsn candidate.
Tho League people had on hand this morning
the subject of tho percentages for visiting club.,
carried ov Tfrum last night's mcotlns.
It was thought probablo that an allowance of
from 40 to fto per cent, of tho gato receipts
would be established for next season.
After disposing of this business tho League
will consider thn question of admitting Brook
lyn and ( iuciuiiati, which will pinbably take
thereat of tho da).
President Dav said this mot nine that thn mat
ter mado no ttiflcrcneo to him. ono way or the
other, and he didn't caio whether tho League
had eight clubs or ten.

provided that a player must anange for his owu

club to lease itt employ.
At l'-.Oft to-dov the Association delegates ad
journed until -'. :in.
Tho deadlock was unbroken and was said to be
likelv to bo maintained until the matter nf
Brooklyn and Cincinnati being admitted to the
Liaguewas settled.
The Jimp fneii.ut presented tho name of Mr
Voltz, put Von der Abe and his people wouldn't
listen to the name ot any other than Phdp.
J. Palmer O'NYll. of Pittsburg, said to-day
that ho had aircady signed a number of Brother
hood men. but how many or their names lie re
tused to tell.
President Day said he didn't en re about sign
ing men. but that in the light or the players'
actions ho would rather enjoin them when tho
time arises for them to csiiy out their inten
tion of playing ball. Habt he
"Wait until tin so capitalist put up their

' It is a simple matter for these men to put

And then Manager rowers arrived upon the
scene and Mr. Day turned to listen to that hus

considered In services in the ting at Itichbiirg,
