Ho eren i" It desecrated tbe name of United States Uenator Blair, the New Hampshire man who -ranted to be Chinese Minister, and who was refused by the Chinese Empire. Thon, also. Mltklswlcz nnd Miller claim to be on the closest terms With the Chinese Minister at Washington nnd the Chlnoso Prime Minister. LI Huns Chang. Mr. O'Jlrlon, with bis family. Is stopping nt Asbnry Park. It soems that he met Shoe Box Miller throo years ago, while Miller was tiav lltng In the South In the Interest of a trade paper publtahod at Pittsburgh. O'Brien treat ed Miller courteously, and Mlllersald he would ill II Berer forget It. On July 3 last Mr. O'Brien was II II an his way to Anbury Park, with his family. At I If! Jersey City he entered the telegraph office, and U If tbero met Miller. I II Miller was delighted to see O'Jlrlon nnd said II that the time had come for htm to reciprocate n it the klndnass shown to him in the Bouth threo I fj years before. Miller had a great schemo, and I II O'Brien nskod him to call. Two day later II Ijl Wilier, acaompanled by Count Mltklowlcz, lj called on Mr. O'Jlrlon at his hotel, the Guern- HI ey House, Asbury Park. The Count and Shoe j Jlox thou told Mr. O'Brien that they had the lllj most wonderful concessions on earth from the HI! Jimporor ot the Flowery Kingdom. In lllj word, they, with the assistance ot Hill the Government, wero to control all III! ,ihe banking and telegraph prllleges. Ill There wan a whole lot ot rlaamarols of III! this kind, and Incidentally it was said that Mr. CI! UlnfrandCol. Shepard were interested in the (If If " syndicate of which the Count and Miller were llfll ' the eminent representatives. Cot. Bhepard waa llffi to have the linperor recognize Mr. Blair as the II I American. Minister at Pektn. According to the llll Count and Miller on that oocasion. the Chinese llll Minuter at Washington and the Prims Minis Ill I terof China were both large stockholders In llf the syndicate and had assisted in bringing I , about the wonderful concessions to the syndl Rll I cate for which the Count nnd Miller spoke. Dll I Not the lenst of the great things to he done RIB 'because ot these concessions was that the HII leaders of the syndicate were to influence the HI I American Congress nnd the American Presl- II dent to rescind the restrictions governing the I entrance ot Chinese to this country. The I Count nasi his side partner were provlrted with I batches o; letters and documents, and eierr t 'thing went smooth for the time being. They B I I Wanted Mr. O'Brien to advance $10,000 for tra il I I mediate expenses, claiming that be would I make $100,000 the first year, and that II I I altogether his profits would he tOO.ooa Mr. It I I U'Brlen wanted to know why they didn't go to jlf! Col. Bhepard and get this $10,000 tor expenses. ,- J I . U'ho Count replied that the Colonel would ill I argue that be could not do this because It IsaVZ would look llko brlhery. and ho could not I nftord to comcromiee himself. The Count I added, though, that Col. Bhepard told him: I I " Count you get the $10.000, 1 ilon t care how, D I j but get It, anil as soon as tho contracts are I Ignod I will repay the money." D I J The Count and Shoo Box wanted the money - ,,11 from Mr. O'Brien that ery minute. Mr. sbTJ HUE O'Brien said he ilidn't carrr that amount of B llll B eash around with him nnd then t her ottered to ilf (ill take his check. Mr. O'Brien was still doubtful j B I about thu concossious. and the Count and Hhoe ijl lllj Box Invltod him to go to Washington, where ! D B they would meet the Chinese Minister and his i oillclal Interpreter, ana tbey could learn 0 I offiolnllyall about the concessions. Mr. O'Brien B I finally agreed to meet them In Philadelphia on ,. 1 Monday night. July C. nnd go with them to ijl u I E AVaablngtnn. After his visitors had gone he ilS II IJ E met W. C. MoBriae. n Wnsblngtcn corre- ij IJ E apendent for several Western papers H HI I and n personal friend of O'Brien. O'Jlrlen H K n told McBride ot the dazzling sehemo. and Mc- I M Bride warned him of the reputation ot the H l I I tw0 mon bo had conferred with. O'Brien then III telographed the Count and Mjoe Box ililler at H E I the Astor House, where they were ihen stop- II E pl'ig. telllnglbem that ho could not meet them j I as agreed. This caused a great commotion. II J! I and Miller rushed back to Asbury Pnrk. and j III I jroH confronted by Mr. O'Brien and McBride. 1 i 1 Molirlde questioned Miller about the seheme, I IE I and Miller became confused, nnd llnully Mc- ll l I Sride said- to him. "You are aiascal. and your H II I I allsgnd banking scheme is a fraud."

The feeling between the brothren of the Willing Workers for Christ Mission, connected with Grace Methodist Church at Marlon, Jer soy City, Is growing more Intense every day. There had been quarrels and nunrrsls In the organization, but whon ex-President John Jl. Peloubet caused the arrest of John W. Botben, his successor, it was thought the climax had been reached. As was stated In TrtE Bun several days ago, Mr. Peloubet resigned the presidency of the Willing Workers nnd Mr. Botheawns elected to suocoed him. Tnen Mr. Peloubet shipped the organ and noarly nil the furniture out of the mission, llu claimed that the fixtures were bis personal property. Mr. Botben ex pressed bis opinion ot Mi. i'elnubet's notion, nnd Mr. Peloubet hud him arrested, it is un derstood that if Mr. Bothon wins thoense ho win prosecute sir. reloubet lor false imprison ment. Meantime various things have been done to nnuoy the present mauegers of the mlsnion. leterday a summons was served on John W. Botben. Francis Seaulno, Clarence Ulnck. nnd C. F. Warner In a suit ot Mrs. Ann McCormlck for $5. Mrs. McCormlck keeps n grocery store and furnished some siipplie to the mission. Hhe alleges tbnt she hns been unnble to collect ber money. Henry Fink, janitor of the mis sion building, hss begun suit lor ti. lie sub mitted a bill ot fi.oi. The officers required him to itemize It nnd he did so. There were two items: "For matches, wood. kerosene, Ac $1.07: lor horse nnd cnrrlsge for mission picnic. $3. The officers, who not as trustees, were willing to audit the claim of $1.07. but they resolutely protested against the $3 for horse and cnrrlace hire, it wan their unanimous opinion that the janitor was not authorized to hire a horse and carriage. In regard to Mrs. Mccormick's suit one of the officers said her claim was properly audited, nnd tho money was tendered to her by thn treasurer, but she could not chango a bill and payment had to be deferred. The officers are convinced that the suits are partot the conspiracy which tber believe has been concocted to destroy tho mission.

Auir. 21.-A. large number of papers, for the most part of a'teohntca! charac ter, were to-dy read before tho several aee tlons of the American Association for the Ad vancement ot Bclenee. A few, bow'ever. were ot popular Interest. A paper entllUd " An Ex periment In Human Btirpiculture" was read before the anthropological section by its au thor, Anita Newcomb McGee. Mrs. McGee said that it is not generally known that a carefully planned and methodi cally conducted experiment in. human stlrcl culture, probably tho most extensive and sys tematic of modern times and civilized people, was carrtod on during the years 1808 to 1879 In central New York. The originator of tbe ex periment was a zealous but logical enthusiast, the late John Humphrey Noyes. Tbe purpose was tho promotion ot sanctity. The place 1 nnd tbo means were the Oneida Com munity. In enrly lite Noyes founded tho peculiar sect called Perfectionists, will, h In 1848 gathered disciples to the number of olghtv-seven ln Oneida. Here the (ommunlty of goods and also of per son wns practtscd-a system of complex marriage. In which the amative nndprooogn tive functions were separated, having been es tablished. Until 18G3 tho birth rate ln the community was carefully limited, but at this dnto. financial success being assured and the members having Increased to 2S0, the experi ment In stlrplculture was begun. Its object was iho Increiso of sanolty In succeeding gen erations In order that sin, disease, and finally death might be abolished. Physique, intel lect, horedllaty qualities, mutual attraction, Ac were secondarily considered. Tbe first principle ot this Btirpiculture was continued in-and-in breeding, with judicious mixture of foreign blood from time to time. Its second principle was the oarefui selection ot Individuals. From 1 still to 18t)0 the children wore born in pursuance of this plan. Of those iHo died nt birth from unforeseen auses, de- tending on the mothers, and one child was ac nonledged n fnllmu physically. Otherwise the experiment was progressing admirably, Ihe beet of care being given the children, when nn unexpected result caused tho failure of nil Noies's nlims The spirit ot monogamy, ruth lessl kept in cheek before, buiame so strong In consequence nf the mutlngof one-quarter of the community fnrstirnicultural purposes that tiiecointilo marrliiEo system wns chen ud in 18111. 'J lie dissolution of the Cnelda Commu nity by mutual consent followed a year later. Noyes. foisseeinc the end, bad retired from Oneidn. Be died ln 1HR6. Of the stirploiiltural children only one has slnro died. Tho others, now aged 11 to 22 years, are in Ihe whole sorrewhat above tbe outside average in phvatqan and intellect. Tho blond of the children came largely fiom farmers and mechanics, with u strong Infusion from the Intellectual Noyes family. It is tberefoie noteworthy that of the oldest sixteen boys ten nre In business as clerks, foremen, Ac. one Is a musician m repute, two are stu dents ot iawnndmedlolne. iwn at college, and only one following a manual occupation, being a mechanic. Of the oldest six girls two are at rol egs and one Is a student of the kindergar ten srstom. " But." Mrs. McGee said In conclusion, th main object ottheexoerlment nas not yet been attained. Only one ot the children Is a par-frctionii-t. and he was born of an uncle nnd niece, both Noyese. Of tbe rest but few are regular church members. This experiment would, therefor, am to show that while th rn-e could doubtless be Improved by more at tention to stlrph'ulture. yet when directed to the perpetuation of a belief success cannot confidently be expected." Before the mathematical and astronomical faction Prof. Blgolow ot Washington exhibited and explained n new scientific instrument cnlled tho aurorn-Incllnometre. Prof. Blgelow has been working for some years a thn prob lem of tin) iihr.-lenl Interactions between the enrth nnd the sun. nsldx from those doe to gravitation. Several Important discoveries linvo already been mmlo una it uew Held ot in estlgatl'ii opened t cclenco. It has been found that (he name law wbloh underlies the working of electrlcitt and mngue'l-m is oper ating on the Miti. and gives the benutllul curves ot the coionn which are seen nt the times of total eclipse-. This corona is like the nuioro. and Is confined to a narrow belt In each hemisphere of the sun. Prof, liig-low hai recently discovered the causes nf torrctrlal magnetism nnd the vari ation of the mngnetic needle nil over the earth In t'onodt' motions. It -oms Hint tbe sun light is also a magnetic field, and that ihe magnetic, d earth rotates in It. just like the nrmntureof a dynamo Bynsortof magnetic refraction the ravsof lorce ontertho dark side of Die earth In peculiar curves, pass through it In straliilit lines, and emerge in similar curves on the sunny side ot thn lartii. turn ing nil the needles In n corresponding way. Now the aurora marks tbe pathways by which these lorces enter and lenve the earth, or Ihe modifications that are produced by them, or tho ordinary macnotic field surrounding tbn enrlh. due to Its permanent magnetism, and It therefore becomes essential tontndy cnrefully tho data that they can give. Much study has been given to the aurora, but not along Ibis line, for which nlso Prof. Blgelow has given the theory. Those threo subjects the corona, the aurora, ami terrestrial magnetism, mrm one grand scheme nnd depend upon one law, the inverse of Newton's law of gravitation. To test ihe aurora n new In-trument has been plnnnad by Prof. Blgelow. It wns con structed by the United Mates Coast and Geodetic hurvov. and tbey havo made It a model of beauty and efficiency. It will be sent to Alaska tills autumn, where the aurora is seen in tho host conditions. I.OOKISa roil llOllIIS'S SlVltDEHER. The Police' of t'npt. Ityan'n Precinct Hent on Many False Trails.

MAR THE XAYAL RKriBIT. - HaaySaeclator Get Sreaelfnllr Beaettk while Out to rJee the rreaeh War flhlaa The Qneea.Hevles(e the Fleet. Portsmouth, Aug. 31, A heavy storm had raged throughout the night and the wind had raised a sea which was far from pleasant to the crowds of amateur sailors who wr radr to cut off from the shore In yaobta and excur sion boats. The French fleet, which had com from Osborne Bay to Splthead, had not an bord in position at 10K A. M. Shortly after that boor, however, the French war ships sUamed slowly into their position between th two lints of llrltlsh war'Tersels. Th French ships were slowly getting into line when the strong current, oomblned with bad steering, turned the visiting vessels around and they got so much In each other's war that a series of collisions appeared Imminent. Huw over, the French mrn-of-war gradually cleared each other, although they were unable to take up their proper positions, and were obliged to anchor in a ourved line Instead of the straight 'line naslenod'to. them. At about noon, to the delight of the sight seers, tbo weather cleared un considerably and the'-fleets of yachts and excutsion steamers made for the war fleets from all quarters. Many ot these vessels leaving Portsmouth wero loaded down with excursionists. Outstd the harbor thoy found nucha heavy sea that many of them were obliged to run back for sbelter.'as tbe pounding from the waves threat ened to swamp them. Others, however, braved both wind and vvnve and reached Splthead In a drenched condition. . It was a case of yachting under difficulties and sightseeing amid oun- elilemhlM nntll The Government transport Wye, with about 200 members ot Parliament and tbe ladles of their families, left Portsmouth with tbo excur sion fleet for the scene of the review, and iunurofthem.br reason of sickness, scou re gretted their curiosity. At U P. M.. when the signal to drei-s ship was given, all the Drltlih war vessels, ns if by magic, suddenly broke out their bunting and rode proudly to their anchors flvluu masses of bright Magi of nil shapes and manyonlora. The French fleet also drossed ship ln due course of lime, and the three lines uf war ships presented a line appearano. Mnnh to thn distrust nf thn siahtseerfl. at 3 P. M the hour fixed for tbe Uueen to lenve Osborne Palace .there was a boatyldownpour of rain which put a damuor on everybody, and which delayed the departure of her JJuiesty for fully twenty minutes. Finally tbe Uueen mauaued to embark upon the royal yacht Alborta, at LastlCowes. II. JU. S. Invincible, the guardship In Southampton waters, firing a royal salute and the orew manning the yurds as her Majesty stepped on board. Ouistde the harbor tho Alborta ran alongside the royal yacht Victoria and Albert, a hand some vessel of 2.470 tons, and the Queen was transferred to tbnt larger and safer vessel. On board tbe Victoria nnd Albert, Wneen Victoria waa received by the Admiial Commander-ln-L'hter, the Earl of Clan William, by the Duke of Connimght, in command of the garrison at Portsmouth, by Lord Ueorga Hamilton, tbe First Lord of the Admiralty, and by Admiral of tho Fleet Mr J. T. Pblpps nornby. The Victoria and Aluert. accompanied by the royal yncb'n Alberta and Osborne, by a number of private steam yachts, and by sev eral steamer. Ir.ai'sd with pleasure seekers, started fivr Splthead in order to te view the French and llrltlsh fleets. A soon as tbe Victoria aud Altert. flying the royal standard, entered the lines ot war ships II. M. B Camp erdown, tbe llrltlsh flagship, signalled to man the yardB. and, with wonderful rapidity, the bluejackets swarmed all orer the warships and then remained standing on the yards, their arms extended along the back ropes, like so many men turned to stone. , When the Victoria snd Albert entored thn line nf Ironclads royal salutes were llred from the Dritlsh ships, and ns the roval yacht ap proached tho Frem.li squadron it also ihup riorod out a royal saluto until, owing to tli murklness of the air. the two fleets were en veloped ln clouds ot gunpowder smoke. Slowly the royal yuobt steamed past the French wnr ships, thn crews ot the latter greeting hor presence with hearty cheers, wbloh were responded to by the ilrllish tars and re "dmed by the exoiirsinnlsts, who, In thoir enthusiasm. Boomed never tired of hurrahing. I his truly fine spectacle wns somewhat marred by occasional hhowers of rain and by ..the preseuce of heavy drifting clouds and a choppy sea. Alter passing down one of the llne of flritish nnd trench war vessels tho Victoria aud Al bert roturnod un tho other anil similar lino of ships, and lu so doing brought up nlnngside the 1 rench flagship, the Mnrengo. Tho French Commandor-ln-Chlef. Admiral Uervals. then went un board the royal yacht anil paid his re spects to, tho Oueeu. Admiral Gerrnis was received by, hor Maiesty In the most aiTuble mannpi. 'the Admiral nnd the (Jusen run versed togotber tor soma lime, exchanging international compliments nf tbo usual order, and then, the Admiral leturnlngon hnnrd his flagship, the Victoria nnd Albert continued hoc slow stonitiing through Ihe lines of battle-' shins, and. ibnt n romony completed, tbn vv.tr ships agaiu belched forth their tongues uf flame. While these lost salutes wero being fired the rpynl yacht s earned back toward Usbnrno Palace. Her Maiety. upon landing, was ureot ed with another royal ealute from the huge guardship. ily this time the vast fleet of yachts and ex cursion steamera had put about for home, tha majority of the latter taking tbelr passengers for a trip around thn warships on tha bome vrn.d jniirnov. The French visitor were cheer ed bv nil. nnd they must feel convinced that tho weloomo accorded them was a beatty one xuarixa ruixxnLEss vrixters.
