dred hooka adjusted at Intervals. It Is hauled
and set periodically, two men attending to and
dividing the produce of the trawi. They go out
In a dory about fifteen feet In length, lake un
the line, remove the fish, and rehslt It. Under
favorable circumstances one trawl will take 1.00D
codflah par day. 'Ibe nights are so short aud
the days ao long that we are enablsd to Bsh
nesrly all the time. In the Alaska we were ra
ther unfortunate, having fearfully bad weather
for tbe gteater part of our time, whlcn sffectu
ally prevented us from doing anything with the
trawls. On the loth of June we started from
the Islands with 18,000 flth and arrived In San
Franrlaco, after a talr passage of eighteen days,
all hands pretty well satis Bed on the whole with
the take.

Lynde H Hough havejmllt a yard at an etnenee
of tlO.UUO, for curing Ind preserving the Bah. As
the cod tab arrive on the veassl they are packed
ar eloaely a possible one over the other tn lav
era, with strata of silt between them. At the
yard the first ope r ,tlon Is to break cargo. The
Bsh are then pi iced In a perforated wooden bol,
open on top, and let Into the water by tackle
open nn top, ana let into ine water oy incaio
from the shin. Across the top of the bos boards
are put for two men to alt nn. They take the
fish one by one, and by aid of w iter and elbow
grenae rub tbe black inner skin off. Their feet
are In tbe water, and although it I rather rough
on the hands, especially to a beginner, we face
It as Jeffrey faced the cat, and after a while
onc'a hand get cilldta and . a Inaetislblo to pain
ae the bide of the armed rhinoceros. Ihe nett
operation la tn place the washed Bsli In pickle,
fr which purpose they are conveyed to the
packing home. In tho packing bouse long ee
rie of lurrels sre ii i rained In rows sufficient In
number to nbkie fiuu tons of ash. The pickle
conslata slmplvof a atrong anlutton of salt lu de
with pure airing water, conveyed from th heirt
of tho cafi in auove, mid In It the Bsh are allow
od lo soaa for about ten days, when they are
taken out and placed on tbe"flks " to dry.
The "0 ikea" consist of a frame with a number
of laths srranged at Intervals apart, rising from
each side of tue frame, and miking an obtuae
angle at top. On these laths Ine codflah are
spread tu dry, and when nlgnt comes on taken
under cover. A great deal of care has to bo
taken lu tbe drying procrea, as prolonged expo
sure to n very hot sun would result In the utter
destruction of the I'll. When pnperly diled
the fl-h are ready for market, and command
from sit to seveo cents per pound.

HOT CORN, SMOKING HOT !

On nearly every corner in Chathnm
street and tbe Bowery, In Sixth and Eighth ave
ones, here and there In lirosdwny, in Fourth
avsnueand tbe cross stroets, eibo In tbese sum
mer nights the cries of the hot-corn venders.
Beginning at early dusk and continuing until
almost dawn, the negro vocalist who sing " Hot
corn I hot corn I" are heard the wholo nlgut
through. Why should hot corn have come to
he retarded aa peculiarly a nocturnal delicacy?
There are a few vendere of It to De seen in the
day-time, but they are In number as one to a
hundred compered with those who are In the
streets by night. I'soplo undoubtedly do eat It
at llielr dluner-tablee and as part of hurried
lunehea tn diiwn.li,wn paitaiipanta. hot lha
lunches In down-town restaurant, but the
treat demand seems to be after nlgbt-fall, or
rather between the hour of P. M. and 1 A. M.
precisely the time when rigid hygienic custom
forbids tbe taking of food into tbe stomach.
But who ever heard of anybody becoming ill
from tbe eating of good green corn, even late
at night, when the eating was In moderation
say not more than a handful of ears at a single
slttt ig-or standing? Perhaps the solitary noc
turnal eating of but corn Is prompted by a cou
scl lusntas that the occupation Is far from
being graceful. True, the corn may be shaved
from the cob by a knife Into a plate, there ass
aouod. and thence forked or spooned Into the
mouth vory neatly, and ecn daintily, but very
una itiefdctorllr. To on J iy hot corn It must bo

flavor of tbo butter, sslt and pepper spread
upon It. Tu cut It off and serve It upon a plato
Is worthy ot film who would fry a steak to
Julcelessuess and bring It to a table on a cold
platter. Uut one's moutb doss aprsad hideously
over an ear of corn, and the effort to clear the
lln from tbe teeth for a bite gives prominence
to cne'a niulsre, Incisors, and bicuspids,

Such consider itions, weighty as they mty be
at the dinner table, count for nothiug In the
gloom of a nlgbt. Tbat tbl feeling of delicacy
snd senaltiveness Is the marked characteristic
of hot corn eaters, and accounts for tbelr shrink
ing from public scrutiny Into th friendly seclu
sion of the night, seems to be undeniable. Tne
theory is slo sustained by the observed tact
that their ears are ssnsltlva, and ravolt at the
loud, harali cries with which Venders of other
delicacies and naceasitle of life ok to attract
customers, i'tic colored folks, who almost mo
nopolise the hot com busln, , understand Uu
full well, and govern themselv accordingly.

A tgaaek Preleealeaal Kxeeeed.
In moat well reitulatexl householdf the
parlor are eonsldered Incomplete without the
presence of pianoforte. The poeeeealon of a
pianoforte Involves the dftaalnnal employment
of a tuner who oeeuplea to the Instrument the
game relation tbat the pbyslelan bears to tbe
am rvisiuu sums tne pnysieian treara to tne
family. The pianoforte tuner, slthotigb he may
not he required so often as tbe physician, never
theless receives, In many sases, an equally large
fee for hla visits. There are In tbl city nearly
one thousand professional pianoforte tuners,
most of whom are rarsly without sufficient em
ployment to keep them busy. A booy, they
are quiet and unobtrusive, and many of them
are poeaeaeed of a good education.
The work of the tuner upon the piano begin
before the instrument la finished. After It Is
"strung" the tuner draws up tbe eords or
strings to a proper tension for Ihe Bnlsber.
After the tuner lis properly set It, the " regu
lator " receives It and adjusts tbe keys and
dampers. This being done, tb tuner sgaln
comer Into requisition, and tunes It up " for the
tone." From bis bands It pssoa Into the ware
room, where for the last time prior to Its sale
tbe tuner brings the strings up to the proper
tension for playing, slthougb, should the In
strument remain longer on band than la antici
pated, tbe tuner attached to the warerooms and
factory must keen It In order. All plsnos re
quire tuning st least every three months, par
ticularly those which are In use In private
houses. Of all musical Instrument tbe piano Is
tne most troublesome and the hardest to keen
lo nine, and all others except tbe plsno are
tuned up to what tbe professional tuner techni
cally term "perfect."
'lunera outside nf the manufactories and
warerooms have regular route of cuatomers,
and at their room await the Inevitable " I'liuae
rail our plsno 1 awfully out of tune," written
In the delicate cblrograpoy of tbe feminine
band.

charted with the attempted assassination of
William Thomas. He waa left for dead In a rnal
company's stable, but he subsequently recov
ered. McParlan, the detective, told the story
of the heartless attempt at murder as the assas
sins had told It to him. They went singly up to
the stable where Thomas was with the Imraea.
ll was early In the morning. The first one who
stepped Into the stable was Hurley, who fired a
shot at Thomas. The victim threw bis bat In
his murderer's fare, and Hurley fired again. By
this time Ulbbons made his way Inside, and he
shot twice at Thomas. Morris then worked hla
way Into the stable, and fired several shot.

Thomas fell among the horses. They were sure
ho waa dead. Several horses were shot. This
story of murder waa told to the detective bv tire
men Immediately after the occurrence. They
were atlll nn tbe mountain when they met Mc
Parlan. Thomaa was picked up, bleeding from
numerous wounds. He recovered. This wa on

The persons accused are James Koarty, John
Kehoo, John Morris, llennls K. tanning, Michael
O'Brien, Christophor Donnelly. John Donahue,
alias " Yellow Jack," Prank McHugh and John
Gibbons. It Is an unusual sight tu a stranger to
see them go from the Jail tnflthe Tottrt House
enter the court-Mom and take seats. They are
all chained together and are under guard nf stal
wart men composing a part of the coal and Iron
police. The prisoners were all companion uf
detective McParlan when he was a masque

On Thursday there wa a strange development
In court. A second Jimmy Kerrigan appeared
In the person uf young Frank McHugh. one, nf
the gang. He was called to the wltuess -t.md,
and when hla fellow prisoners realised what lie
was doing, they grew iale and shuddered at the
Imiienillng exposure. The young fellow spoke
fdaluly and distinctly, and there wu not the
east agitation nntltealde. He waa a full-Hedged
Mnllv. and was secretary of a society or division
at Mahauoy (Ity when nrreated. He corrub
orated Detective Mi Parian lu everything lie hud
aaid. and will make an i-i. client wttuca- fur the
fimsecutlon. When questioned he replied that
te thought it would Ii better for "all hand lu
the gang" to make a clean breast nf It und con
feu everything, because Uie Court would he
Ismind to nude ven thing out anyhow: ll was
only a question of time, lie waa present at the
meeting when It vtii arranged for the three mur
ders, and he avtore to the truth uf all the detect
ive bad said. HI le-tiinniiy created an luterae
exrltement, and tbe prisoners at the bar looked
dejected.
Next 1 ame the teatltnnny uf the warden of the
Jail. Mr. Ityerle. He lealiBed that John Kehoe
had a coiiier-.ttlon In hi- cell 1 1 tt him. kehuc
I represented to Iss cue , if the leading Molllea
In tbe regions. He asked how the trial of the
I ,.st murder was imiceeeltig. and how the ac
cused would "make out.' the reply waa that
II Mould "go vrr loos'li ' with them. Kehoe
then said: " I think It will go rough with uull,
for I in ufrs.1,1 that we won 1 get Ju-tice; but if
we don t get Justl, e here, the old in to at Hama
Imrg won't nr dareii t go back on ue." A liuzx
of aatoulsbmeul wa beard all over the room.
Several week ago President (iowen. lu hla

charged directly that these murderer were pro
tected by political Influence, aud some of the
worst had been pardoned through political In
terference ; and when Kekoe's remark waa
sworn to by Ihe warden, aim la a responsible and
reliable man, there were many present who knew
