Wm Ills (stormy Interview with the laearcent Cant-
mnndor lie Was Caart-iMartJaled, A
fl quilted, una UtM la Writ It Ba Tha Talk
I I That II U4 with sresslaat MeKlaler.
, Ma nil ID, Fob. 23. Kl Liberal published yea-
I te rd y " long telegram from BeDor Morote, 1U
wnr correspondent in Cuba, giving an account
of hl experience while a prisoner In the. hands
of the Insurgents. Tho public- hero Is not In
t lined to bcllovo nil that Morote says, or, rnthcr,
hII that Kl Liberal attributes to him. Kvcry
loir tu Madrid knows that this nowspapor, al
though republican, has of lata been In closo
touch with l'rcinlir Canovas In everything ro
k curding tho Cuban question. The Hpanlsh
l'rciiiler has hail no supporter warmor Uian Kl
I l.ibtmltot his schcaio of reforms. The proposed
reforms having so far failed to Induce tho Cuban
Insurgents to enter Into negotiations for peace,
tho )llcy of tho Cablnot and Its orgnns'now Is to
say that ull Cubans of high social standing
would willingly ncccpt tho projected reforms,
but nri prevented from doing so by Ucn. Maximo
(lomcz, nhure will Is supremo among tho Insur
gents. Moroto's despatch was, accordingly,
I worded with the greatest caro, so that It might
i onvejr n favorable Impression upon the pcopto
Iiitc. Hut tho Spanish aro becoming lncred
i,lnu. They ennnot understand how, If Maximo
(louicx Is I ho autocrat depleted by Moroto, tho
1 latter could so easily cscnpo doath, despite the
alleged manifest deslro of Gomes that this pun
I Ishniciit should bo Infllctod upon htm. Nclthor
I tan any one here bo made to bellovo that men of
talent and promlncnoc, such as Moroto says ho
saw It) the Insurgent ranks, and whoso names ho
gives, thould submit to tho despotic will of n
" foreign adventurer " when nothing prevents
them from desortlng him.
Another thing which Is rather obscure in
Moroto's story Is the reason which Induced him
to ro to the Cuban camp. Did he go merely ns a
sewstmpcr correspondent who wlshod to soo
things for himself and break the monotony of
flen. Wejlcr's olllclal reports! Was ho an
egent of tho Spanish authorities In Cuba,
charged with tho mission of Investigating tho
actual feeling of the Insurgents with regard to
the reform t Would Marcos Qarcta, tho famous
Miyorof S.inctl Splrltus, havo dared to provldo
hlui with letters for l'resldont Clsneros and
other Cuban ofltclals had ho not been duly au
thorized to do so I How was It that Marcos
(Inrcla was not court-martialed I Everybody
knows that, not for writing to Insurgents, but
(Imply for receiving letters from them, many a
person hai been deported to tho Spanish penal
settlements In Africa.
Acionllng to tho despatch Tdoroto was for a
week a prisoner of tho Insurgents, court
tnnrtlaled nnd acquitted. On Feb. 10 he left
tfsnctl tfplrltus with a pass Issued by the Span
ish Ocnrral Luquo, authorising him to visit
forts 1'lco Tucrto and Alonso Sanchez. Three
miles from tho city limits his guide told him,
" hook out now. Wo uro already In Cuba Libre."
Scarcely had ho uttered the words when an In-
surgent furco appeared and seized Morote. This
I happened near the bouso of tho guide. El
riiuchl. The ofllccr in command of tho Insur
gents allowed him to remain there over night,
pending the arrival of his chief. There was
ij r.othlng to eat. Tho house was a miserable hut.
t I 1 ho guide's family consisted of his wife, who
una out In tho yard preparing some coffee, and
llithltdmi, ono crippled and Idiotic, all naked
I nit aiming about with several hogs. Moroto
lotted I ho night as bent he could In u hammock.
Kxrly in the morning ten more Insurgents ar-
tiTedul tho house. Later a few paclfiros camo
I nil warned them that Spanish troops were ap-
touching, hearing w htch thoy all hurriedly left
' I lie place. Moroto thought then of making his
' crape, but the sudden return of the insurgents
' presented him. lie was soon after taken to the
' lamp ot Manaquila, which was occupied by
' JhMcndo Osrclas band. Here Morote says:
' " 1 sent wurd to Marco Onrcia, Mayor ot
(una I rpirltu. Informing him of what occurred.
I or the purpose of procuring my liberty and also
' ol providing mo with the means of Investigating
t thoclfcctof reforms upon the Insurgents, Mnr-
. i ui llsrcla sent me letters addressed to I'resl-
i i mt Clsnerrx. to Severe linn. Minister of
flt i Hnnner. to llrlgadicr JosA Miguel Domez, nnd
, . r I" other luijiortant men In the would-be Cuban
jciniMIc
'Mn these letters Marcos Oarcia said: 'Tho
object of Ibo reforms Is to reach an understand
ing which may savo tho moral and the material
Interests of the country. You will never obtain
ltivlleges for Cuba by force of arms.' A sug
t.itt Ion was nisdo In the letters that I would
willingly speak to Maximo Uomez.
"Tho letters having been sent to their destl
pillon, tho tlrst reply I received was from tho
Minister of Klnnnce, rlorero Una, who sold that
I ho only aspiration of the Cubans was to see
their island free; that I would be taken before
Msxlmn Gomez: and. Anally, that a safe conduct
would ho given to me upon my return.
"It took two da)s to do nil this. While in
It'clrcamu the Insurgents requested mn to road
i to them the opinions ot Castelar, Pi y Margn.ll,
' Mnrct, Comas, Valero, and others upon dlplo-
initio action In Cuba, as published ln an extra
l.uoot El Liberal, of which I had a copy. They
i. II praised Castelar's declarations opposing
American intervention, and thoso of Ply Mar
la ' Mil urging tho Oovemment to establish Cana
dian home rulo In Cuba. (Extracts from these
I articles printed In Tux Hux about a month ago.)
" In conversation with mo the Cuban oftlcers

Honor Moroto. tho Spanish Journalist w ho told
tho atiovo story of his cxnerionce. Is now on his
way from this port to Havre. While In New
l ork ho refused to say anything for publication ;
but he spoko freely upon Cuban nffnlrs to n gen
tleman with whom he had a long conversation
In Washington. Moroto said then that in his
opinion reforms would not In tho least affect the
course of the war, as the insurgents, without
distinction, were tnoro determined than ever to
continue lighting for Independence, which Is
quite different from tho opinions he appears to
havo cabled from Havsua to Kl Liberal. As our
Madrid correspondent suggests, Kl Liberal'
version of what Moroto said may havo boen
written expressly to please Premier Canovas.
It Is learned that while In Washington Softdr
Moroto saw Presldont MoKlnley, but could not
elicit from him odoflnlto answer to any of his
Sucstlons. Ho also wished to seo Secretary of
late Sherman, but Seflor Dunuy do Lome dis
suaded him from doing so, saying:
" You will lose your time. You will hear from
that hog nothing but absurd things about
Spain."
Uupuy do Lomo showed Moroto a despatch
from Gen. Wcyler asking for n quantity of kero
sene nnd remarked; "This must surely bo to
aid his torch's work.
Morote is quoted by his Washington friend as
having summed H the situation for tho Spanish
In Cuba In these words: " Nobody is willing to
light, and all steal who hao an opportunity to
do so."

Havana, March 10, via Tampa, March 11.
Ileports aro received from Manzanlllo about an
other serious engagement near tho Cauto HIver
in which Gen. Garcia captured from the Span
lards a large supply of arms and ammunition
and mado 100 Spanish soldiers prisoners.
Tho situation In the province of Santiago de
Cuba continues to bo favorable for the Insur
gents, and the Spanish columns have practically
abandonod active operations In the Meld. They
escort only tho convoys with provisions from
ono fortified town to another, carefully avoiding
any tight with the Cubans. Col. Vara del Roy
has reported to Gen. Wcyler that It Is Impossi
ble for the Spanish to movo In the province In
columns less than 4,000 men strong.
The Spanish guerrilla of Guannbano, Matan
zas province, has been defeated there by the In
surgent forces commanded by Gen. Dctancourt.
Tho engagement was very hot and lasted four
hours. The Spanish had tlfty-slx killed and the
Cubans thirty-seven.
Tho estate Carmen, nt Sabanllla, has been at
tacked again by tho Cubans, who ransacked tho
stores and dispersed tho garrison.
Gov. Porset of Matanzas has sent eighty mora
prisoners to Havana. They are accused ot being
viantoot. Two hundred prisoners havo boenpro
vlously reported as forwarded to Havana. They
will he sent to the Island of Fernando Po.
Senor Ln IUrrern, Chief of Police at Havana,
will embark for Spain soon. Senor Porrua, Civil
Governor of the provlnia of Havana, will also
go to Spain. Ilntli functionaries are said to be
In serious disagreement with Gen. Werler.
Fonsdevlellu is committing new ntrocitiosat
Guanubacoa. Soven prisoners yesterday wero
taken out of the Jail and murdered half a mile
outside the town. Fonsdevlella boasts of his
crimes, and says that the more he Is attacked by
the Cubans the more of them he will kill In order
to provo that ho has the conlldenco of his Government.

ported, Spain has ordered a new Investigation ot
the facts which led to Hull's death. Hut Con-ul-Oenerol
Lee Is quoted us saying that ha does
not clearly see how tho Investigation can be
properly carried out, or how an Impartial trial
can be held, since no witnesses will testify

murdered a few months ago by the Spaniards ln
Cuba, will file a claim against tho Spanish Gov

Tho case of Govln Is clear, because notwith

THE SHELDON MURDER TRIAL.
aaramtug l'p for the I'roaeciitloa The Casa
Ultra to the Jury.
Aunun, N. Y March ll.-Mr. Wright to
day concluded tho summing up for tho prosecu
tion In the Sheldon murder caso. He said that
when Sheldon was driven forth by bis mistress
on tho night before the murder ho wanted
money, and wanted It badly.
He know that ho could not get It except on a
mortgage, nnd that his wlfo would not sign It
unloss sbo know for what purpoio ho wanted tho
money, Thoro was only ono alternative, nnd
that was to removo his wife from his path.
That's what prompted him to commit murder.
Mr. Wright then took up the chain of evldcnco
nnd reviewed It link by link, and In closing ho
urged the Jury to do Its duty conscientiously
and In the fear of God; to seo to It thut no dis
agreement occurred, and ho was certain they
would tlnd tho defendant guilty as charged In
thelndlctmont.
The charge to tho Jury occupied nearly threo
hours. It was then AiUU o'clock, and Mr. Drum
tiiond wishing to mako a tow exceptions to the
charge, a recess wus ordered until 7:30 o'clock.
Upon reassembling those exceptions wero noted
nnd tho Jury rutirnd to dellberato upon tholr

To Tnic Editor or Tits Sun Sir: This Is tho
official geographical designation to be found In
tho first section of tho Greater New York bill,
which became A law by the signature ot Gov.
Levi P. Morton on May 11, 14001
"Allth municipal corporations, and part of mu
nicipal corporations other than countlea, within the
following ttrrllory, to wit t The county of Kings, tho
county of Hlchmond, tbe city of Long Iiland City, ths
towns of Newtown, Flushing and Jamaica, and that
part ot ths town of Hempstead, In the county ot
Qusena, whlob ta wratorly ot a atralght line drawn
from the southeasterly point ot the town of Flushing
tbroufh the middle of the channel between Ilockawny
Beach snd Shelter lilsndln the couuty of (juecna, to
the Atlautlo Ocean."
Tbo throo most populous nnd important divi
sions of tho future Greater New York, New York
city, lirooklyn, and Statcu Island, havo tho samo
official boundaries as the counties of New York,
Kings, and Richmond, but tho irregularity of
tho divisional lines ln Queens county has given
rlso to somo misunderstanding and controversy
and without prejudice to the realization of tho
glorious project of n Greater New York may bo
described as an amusing blunder.
In tho llxltig ut geographical boundaries It Is
customary among surveyors and civil engineers
to draw linos of demarcation from given points
which arc stationary, and linos thus drawn aro
dotlnlto nnd permanent. Tho south lino of tho
eastern boundary ot tbo Greater New York, how
ever, Is "tho mlddlo of the channol between
Rockaway Reach and Shelter Island." Thoro Is
ancient authority for declaring that tho sands of
tho sea aro constantly shifting, und any Now
l ork pilot who would abandon for such occasion
tho taciturnity of bis craft could toll any Now
Y ork legislature that tho channels lit and about
Now York Ray and on long Island aro con
stantly changing. Vory recently thoro has lon
such a change south of tbo lino of Sandy Hook,
und It appears that since tho adoption of tho
ratification of tho Greutor Now York proposition
by a majority or tho voters to be nffocted by It,
at tho election ut 18114, tho mlddlo of tho channel
between Rockawu) Reach and Shelter Island is
nut where It was at that tlmo. In other words,
tho sad sen waves have shown no respect for tho
nets ot the Albany legislature, tbo members of
which adopted as tho southwesterly boundary of
tho Greater New York a movable point.
If tho Una draw u on so much of Queens county
as Is on tho mainland north of tho Rockanay
Rench Inlet remained permanent, the variance
ot tbo southern boundary point would mako per
haiui but llttlo (inference; but us tho " middle ot
the channel" shifts, tbo straight lino drawn
from tho southeasterly point ot tbo town
of flushing varies, too, M that tho pe
culiar and paradoxical result follows that
thoso persons resident ulong tho eastern
border lino of tbo Uuccns county town
ship are alternately in and out ut tho future
(Ircutur New York according as tho middle oint
of tho channel between Rockaway Reach und
Shelter Island changes. In fact, if this
geographical designation Is permitted to
stand, or moro properly, perhaps, permitted
to shift, tho eastern boundary of tho future
Greater New York will bn a lino subject to tbe
changes of tho occin currents, and It will bo Im
practicable to determine with exactness where
tho Greater Now York onds and where the port
of Uuccns county not Included ln It begins.
This will bo a deplorablo oversight, moro es-
Iieclally for such patriotic citizens of tho present
lureus county as might ono day bo In tbo full
fellovt shin of their brethren of the Greater New
i ork, and tho next day find themselves oxcluded
from official usoclatlou with thoso who hiul
Men their follow-cltlzcns a day or two before.
The matter is ono whtrb seems certainly to call
for tho early attention of tho Albany Legisla
ture, and which offers the surveyors and civil
pnglnoers an opportunity they do not always
have to distinguish themselves, and. Inciden
tally, to honor their constituents.

To tiik EuiTOit ok Tiik Sf." Sir: In n tall
down-town building tho other day I saw by tbe
side of tbe clovutor shaft a notice that read tu
this effect: "To stop tho elevator, push tho
button. The car will not stop unless thus sig
nalled. Tho object ot this rulo Is to Insure
quick transit for tenauts of tho building."
There wero two buttons one marked up, tho
other down, and the usual Indicator showing
thn location of the elevator nnd the direc
tion In which It was travelling. Tbo
buttons to signal tho elevator aro not new,
but tbo nolico that tho car would not
stop unless signalled in this manner wus new
to me, and It seemed very- senalhlp. Many u
tlmo a man stopping an olovatnr by catling mis
calculates the speed at whkh It Is moving, uml
tho car gets past before tho elevator man can
stop It, He must go back a few inches or may
be a foot. It must mako a delay of two or three
second. With a dozen men In a car tbo lots of
tlmo In tho aggregate might t half a minute to
a minute. Stopping on signal ntily. the peraon
waiting Is likely to press thn button early; bu
doesn't havo to wait until tho car is where his
volcoran bo heard; and the elevator man has
ample notice, andean stop nnd get nway again
without drluy. HiuXai.

The zfem Werk, "MeMMar," try Bl and Bre
tt eau m Disappointment la Paris.
"Messldor," tho much-discussed and adver
tised opera by Emllo Kola and Alfred Rruneau,
lias Anally been produced at tho Grand Opera ln
Paris. It Is said to havo been a complete fail
ure, nnd various explanations ot this unex
pected result havo been mod. The libretto,
which Zola wrote, Is sold to have been citrcmoly
poor, and certain features of tho production of
the opera tended to damogo its chances of suc
cess. Tho ballet question always comes up
when a now work is dono at tho Optra, and
with tho newer works It becomes dally moro
and mora difficult. Even when the difficul
ty has been satlfactorlly settled another
trouble on this samo point Is almost certain to
arise. Tho ballot master has tho ordinary and
conventional ballet in sptto nf clforts to units It
to tho story ut tho opera. This question is said
to havo coiiio tip notably nt tho l'nrls pro
duction of "Tannhuuscr" when tho ballet mas
ter tried to mako tho ballot of tho first act tho
samo sort of danco as tho ballets In tho other
operas. MM. Ilruncnti and Zola arc said to lmvo
struggled against tho Introduction of a bullet
Into their work. When it was found to bo Inevi
table, tbo ballot was Intended to represent
tho strtigglo between consclenco und tho de
sire fur gold. This foaturo of tho pro
grumino turnod out to bo merely a trivial
ballet In place of tho pantomlmo which tho au
thors bud Intended. Muslu and significance
wero both said to hove been lott In tho ballet
master's conventional treatment of this episode.
The Intermezzo to tho third act of tbo opera wns
placed nt tha beginning, and this clrcumstanco
bad tho effect of destroying tho particular sig
nificance of that part of tho score. It proved
impossible to uso it as ballet music under tbo
treatment that tho ballet master gavo It, and
only nt tho lust rehearsal was tho chango in tho
form of the opera inado.
Most of tho burden of tho failure of tho new
opera Is laid on tho libretto, which Zola wroto
htmsolf ln nccordanco with Rruncau's Ideas on tbo
subject. In his ten prcccdingtiporas, "Loltcvo"
and "L'Attaqtto du Moulin," Rrtinoau had used
Zola's novels, but had hlmsolf mado them Into
tho form of lyric dramas. For tho first tlmo, In
"Mesuldor," their collaboration look on n now
form, and Zola wroto tho libretto. Tho text Is
said to havo been written In tho most unmusical
proso. Zola's ndvlco to tho composer was to
w rlto his own libretto, and It Is behoved that ln
tho future Ilrmioati will heed It.
M. Rnincnu's muslo for this latest opera was
distinctly Wagnerian, and It was not of a suffi
ciently inspired character to overcome tho dis
advantages of tho libretto. Tho latter was n
story of peasant life, nnd with n fow characters
rovcalod tbo strtigglo of tho ;oor people In n min
ing village against tho power of its wealthiest
man, A peasant woman and her son; tho village
proprietor, who had made himself rich by divert
Imr Into his own land tho stream which brings
gold to the town, nnd an ntinrchlst are tbe char
acters In the threo acta of tho opera. MM. Ro
tinud and Altnrcz and Mine. DoM'hnmps-Jehln,
tho threo Uncut artists In tho opera lompany,
were In the lending rfllos.
('amllla Krlaiiger, another muslo critic of

which Is for Franco tho land of tho fairy tale,
nnd the action paxics in n ruined chapel on tho
coast. The opera neems to lnu o been highly suc
resxf til, und the composer, ns ono Introduced for
the first tlmo to audience at thfOpcruComlquc,
washiehl) praised for his work. Ho Is sala tn
Iw as Wugnerlnn as Rrunrau. who, according to
somo of the critics, has ttticd tho leil-mntir In his
" Messldor " moro than any ut her composer.
Turin has recently heard "Tristan and Isolds"
for thn tlrst time, und the oern Is said to have
aroused tho grcutest enthusiasm. Tosca-Nlnl,
w tin was announced ns onu of tho leaders nf tho
Maplesnn toiiipany last autumti, and Is already
known here, wns tho conductor, tho success nf
tho opera In said to hno been duu In a largo
mcusum to thn lino work ut tbo orchestra, w bleb,
tinllko the orchestras of most Italian theatres.
Is a permanent IkkIj-, and tint engaged merely
for particular seasons of opera. Tbo tenor was
a Frenchman and the soprano nn Austrian. Tho
jK-rformanie did not pass off without n disturb
ance. The thc.ttro was darkened at tho com
liiciicemtut, in accordance, with tho direc
tions nf Wagner. This raised a protest from
ittiumlK-rof tho spectator nnd those familiar
with Wagner's works rcsiionucit with emphasis.
There wua .in exUtod exchange of opinions from
different parts of tho theatre, but the perform
nnco finally went on with Ihe light Mill low and
tho vktor) rested with tho Italian Wngnerltes.
Tho opera will hosting this 5 oar In Rutiio, Milan,
Florence and Naples. Other news from Italy Is
not sorncmiruglng. When Verdi's "Ron Carlos"
wax recently retired ut I.i Sinla, tho composer
rearranged tho work Into a form which ho
thought would assure It a popularity Iu nut
sidu (oiintrlcs that had liithcrtu been tlosod
to tho work. Verdi refused, after the llrst
production, to allow tbo work to Ik repeated,
ns the opera had been put ou the ntngo In
null wrctilml fashion, It appears that ull
the available money of tho establishment had
Inten dcMited tint tuillut lulled "Siwrt," written
by Manzottl, tho coimxinor and devisor of tbo
fniiuiiiB "Kxiclslur." Ho used to bouM-getablo

preparations wero made, the preliminary ex
penditure huWiig been mure thin i5.Vl.tKh), was
not wholly successful. Recently Ui Scalu guve

tbo fact that nil of Its singors were disabled by
colds. Rutin's " Metistofele." which Is better
known outsldo nf Italy than In Its cnmimicr's

In some of the Italian cities. Tho work has

Tho Dean Club was a political organization in
Chicago during tho erection of tho City Hall
and county building ln that city. No club boforo
it and none after It could bo classed with IU
Tho Bean Club was unique.
To bo a member of tho Rcan Club was to bo a
contractor or a purchasing ttgent for tho new
buildings, or a County Commissioner or nn
Aldorman of tho city. Ono of tho originators of
the movement to form tho club, however, was
tho lessee of a high board fence which Inclosed
tho grounds. This fenco was uiod fur adver
tising purposes.
An ontlro floor of the McCormlck building, at
the southeast corner of Dearborn and Randolph
streets, was rented and furnished for Uio uso of
ths members. It was under tho protection of
tho Police Department and the Sheriff of tho
county. When a new contract was to be lot or
an appropriation mado tho club hold a session
until tho ond desired wns reached.
Tha club derived Its name from a contract
which ono ot tbo members ot tho County Hoard
log-rolled through another channel, by which
the Ilrlduwoll, the city workhouso, was supplied
with a brand of beans that would havo been
bettor for fish than for human stomachs.
Ono of tho men who had tho fonco privilege
was also a member of tho County Uoard, and his
partner, then a young man about town, Is now
proprietor of a largo saloon and restaurant tn
tho city. Hill board advertising was something
new In Chicago at tho tlmo. and as this fonco In
closed an entire block In the centre of tho
town there was a spirited rush for tho most
conspicuous places on tho fence, and tho prices
for spaco wero sometimes fabulous. No con
tractor on the buildings and tho contractors
wore nil ln on tho ground floor, nnd together
ever realized so much ln tho clear as tho lessees
of this wonderful fence.
No brotherhood ever stood together moro loy
ally for tho advancement of Its own Interests
thnn did tho Ilcan Club. An outsldo contractor
bad no moro chance in a bidding than a cat with
out claws would havo In Hades, which figure of
Rpcoch was coined for this situation by tbo bril
liant and crratlo Chicago lawyer, Kmcry Hlorrs.
Finally tha finishing touchos wero given to tho
structure by tho combine of contractors. Per
haps this Is not literally truo, for there yet re
main Incompleto sections In the building, al
though tho men who hod ton tracts for fulfilment
recolvcd their payment In full. A long time
after tbo building hail been occupied, Wilbur 1'.
Htorcy, editor of tho Chicago Timet, undertook
to show that there had been flagrant violations
of contracts and rings and combinations which
uvershadowed tho Tweed regime Rut tho syn
dicato stood togother, and although n special
Grand Jury hail extraordinary powers It failed
utterly to find a squealer with enough Informa
tion to warrant a bill.
Tho completion of tho work called for some
sort of a demonstration by tho club, nnd It was
decided tn havo a banquet. In tho exhalations
of this feast tbe club was to pass out of exist
oitie. Tho tlmo had lomo to removo the fence,
and there was no more Inromo to bo derived.
Tho final bids were for thoso things which tho
dinner reporter of tho olden times In Chicago
culled a How of soul. Tbo arrangements wero
on a broad scale. There were to bo speakers and
a local poet wns to mlnglo his rhyino with tho
festivities. Tho Invitations were unlqtio nnd
costly, and for several ) cars after some of them
were still to be found ln tbo city as souvenirs.
Vaudeville wus then unknown, but If It had
born in existence It would doubtless have lieen
taxed totho utmost for attractions. Tho rooms
of tho club worn offices so nrranged that they
connected, nnd tboplun of the dinner coiumlltco
was to havo nach room bountifully supplied, so
that the members and their guests would not bo
under the necrnslty nt hunting refreshments.
Caro wits taken that thorn should be no shortago.
To this end luirrels ot whiskey wero distributed
about tho rooms, the heads being renins ed. Tin
cup were hung around tho sides of theso barrels,
nnd tho man with the whiskey appettto helped
hlmeelf whenever his thirst came ttion him.
Champagno was emptied Into wooden wash
tub and drunk from tin dipper hung from tho
rims. Thoro were buckets of mixed drinks and
cracked ice. There wore barrels and kegs ot
Iwer. Cigars oro heaped up loosely lu corners,
by tho hundreds. Whoravor ono turned ho
found uii) thing and et cry thing In the way of
edibles that tho Ingenuity of tho caterer could
suggest. When tho caterer a celebrated ono Iu
hi day, who camo to New York Inter and erect
ed hero it great hotel, iu which he died u fow
year ago was engaged by tho committee to
prtpuro the feast, ho asked what wan Ihe limit,
Tho Chairman of tbo committee, it man who I
now Hulking the hack street of Chicago, dodg
ing hi creditors, replied: "There ain't no limit
lonotbln'. You throw tho lines ot or tho dash
Ixiard and let tho horse run." And It was so.
(Inuoftho peculiarities of tho feast was that
I hero were mi n alters, although ortcrs were en
gaged to reunite tho debris from tlmo to time.
Occasionally n barrel or tub would run dry and
lmvo to bo rcuiOMxl by porters, to inukr ploco
for a fresh one. Walters Here not needed ot tho
banquet of tho Rean Club. It bad been an
nounced In advance thut It was to boudemu
crntln affair.
There wero no ushers. There was no coat
room. Them was a room w here each member or
guest could deposit his tup coal und hut, but tho
placo nf deposit wan the floor, and no checks
were given. Possibly in the wlndup of tha
affair some man got his own hat and coat, but
In after da) s when this nns suggested loan old
timer bo laughed Incredulousl).
Thn doors wero opened early In tho evening,
liefore tl o'clock the rooms wero packed with a
straiigo an aggregation of humanity us wa titer
huddled together. Sinivtliiius n guest who had
commenced Inn early would fall into a tub nf
thninpagne, or put hi fool Into one, or tumble
over a tnblu and smash the ware, but t hero would
b no stirpriso, no coiumeiils. Tho overcome
would bo reunited too nenr-by hotel, from wbkh
hu would emerge latur tu Join tho revel.
The hour for speeches camo, but thoro wero no
sptcchcH, nt least iiono that bad coherency or
relevancy. Now nnd then n fresh man would
i otiio In und try to slug, but ho wa surrounded
and feted, and huoii lorgol any muslu thut ho
might havo In his soul,
Thn poet of tho occasion weighed nearly '.'(M)
pounds. Ho wa a city official aud ho had tho
hardihood to Insist on reading his effusion. A
irowd llttud him from tho floor uud put him on
a table among tbn moats, unlade, condiments,
ii nil glass warn and held him on his legswhllo
hu road. Homo of tho weaker ones let go to
drink, und tho poet fell and tho table with him.
Nun- mid then it reporter would appear looking
for ono who had been sent over ahead or htm.

At tho present moment a tmto about tho stato

Among tho '.'tH),000 Christians at present In tho

theso chiefly In tho larger towns. Canon, Cnndl.t,
nnd Reth)tuo. Wlion Vcnlco ln l'JOl took pos
session of the Island, which wns formerly under
the sway of tbe llyzantlno Kmpire, no less than
eight episcopal sees wero creeled, with an arch
bishopric at dunlin. It is therefore probable
that nt that tlmo nearly tho whole Island was
Catholic. After lllll!). when Croto fell Into tho
hands of the Turks, tho I.ttln lllshops,
with nearly all their clergy, left thu coun
try, which fell Into tbo hands uf thn
echlsmallu Greek clergy, who ntsiut this tlmo
camo to It, In 1S71 l'liis IX. restored tho an
cient seo of Cundln, making it sutfragnn to tho

The theory that the accident nt Wyoming a
few days ago whs caused by thu opening of a pot
holo is confirmed by thn engineers ln charge, W.
F. Dodge und J. II. Hughes.
In some remote geological age, when this re
gion was oterlald by glaciers, a depression
was formed by tho water and loose stones, and
the latter, cdiljlng round anil round, wore it
cylindrical shaped hollow In tho rock, extending
from tho top of tbo latter totho bottom. There is
no way of foretelling the presence of tho pothole,
nnd nchamtx r may l drl en directly beneath It,
without knonlng. Such, evidently, was thecaso
In Wyoming, and when thn thin layer of thn
rock between the liottomof tho pothole nnd thn
top of tbo chamber guvn nway tho ulcknnd
above poured In, letting donn nn aero or tno of

Messr". Dodge and Hughes hnto reached a
fmlnt loofcet distant from thn fneo nf the chum

Indisputable evldcnco ot tho Hitholu theory.
They also found rounded pieces of conglomerate,
or what thu miners mil "pudding" etoho.
Theso pockets of 'itilrksand aro found occa
sionally lit Wyoming Vnlluy, though t hey aro nut
always potholes. In somo Instances tbo tonl

scooped out In great quantities, either by gl.iclnl

quantity nnd fluidity that it ran ft.OOOfoct lit
