Then he sent a telegram to the Quartorronstor-Oenoml Informing him that the ordor couldn't bo oxecutcd. Tha reason given wan that none of tho vessels montloned was fitted to carry llvo stock awl to fit them. If, ln doed. It could bo done at all. would tako much longer than the time allotted. Major Bummerhayes suggested that the Mint , $ cuwaakn, now in this port and having ocoom- j modntlonB for 1,000 horses and 1,000 men, ba J substituted for one ot tho vessels named, or added to tho number.

Boston, July 29, To-day's developments In tho Jornegan case were not reassuring to the stockholders ot tho Elcctrolrtlo Marino Salt Company. It is announced now that a contract with George L. Bradley of the Bell Telephone Company for the Installation of a subsidiary plant to bo built by Mr. Bradley and lead ing bankers In Springfield was signed within ten days. Tho capital stock for this company was (200,000, 01 per cent to Issue to tho parent company, which would ercot and oporato tho plant, the monoy to bo furnished by Mr. Brad ley and his associates, who pay for -49 per cent. ot the stock. It was the Intention later to expand this company to tho full capacity behind Its dam. whloh would have meant a sub-company ot $700,000 capital. Mr. Jemcgan's money In Boston has been at tached In the Interests of tho subscribers and stockholders, and It Is said that on his arrival In Franco he will bo mot by tholr representa tive and Invited to return to this country. Tho officers ot tho oompany think ho will Imme diately return, but at present It Is not known that thero Is any orimlnnl chargo against him. Prosldont Bran was the only officer who appeared at tho office to-day, and It was given out that Treasurer Usher and Assistant Treasurer Bawyer woro conDnod to their Newburyport homes by serious Illness brought on by excitement and worry at tendant upon tho dltappearanoe of Jornegan Stock offered at 00 oents a share found fow takers to-day. The par valuo Is SI, and on Tuesday It sold for 51.00. It is now H.ild that a letter from Mr. Jorncgnn Is on its way to Mr. Ityan whloh will explain mnttors. and It is alleged to have been sent to Lubcc, Mo., and Is now on Its way to Boston. Lynn Is one of tho cities which has roanon to regret Mr. Jernegan's disappearance, for its cjtirons Invested from $100,(KJO to $200,000. Muoh work was put in there by the promoters and solicitors, and Mr. Jerneean himself was taken there and Introduced and entertained at the clubs. In this way a largo number of subscribers was obtained for various amounts, and bliz things were oxpoctod of the company. Stock holders this morning rooolved letters from people in Connecticut Uio were still going ahead organizing compnnles, but who hnvo probably not hoard of Mr. Jernegan's disap pearance. It develops that Mr. Jornegan wan not the only person connected with tho company who has departed for Europo recently. A Mr. Firmer, a friend of Mr. Fisher, Jernegan's associate, who was bookkeeper nt the com pany's works at North Luboc, has Balled for Europo within two weeks for tho purposo of getting married in Englnnd. Mr. Firmer had been connected with tho com pany only a short time, leaving a position of about $000 a year In Boston to po with Mr. Fishor.

The company chartorod tho Progresso and started It north a month 'ago with freight and passengers. It bought several Yukon steamers j of Moran Brothers at St. Mlohaol and owed ; $31,000 on them. Grayson was ordered to go to nt. Michael with tho passengers and ralso . money to pay for tho river boats and other ex- ' penses on drafts for $30,000, which ho was told tho North American Transportation Company would oash. If noeessary he was to sell tho 1.400 tons ot cargo In tho Pmgresso's hold. Arrtvina at St. Michael, bo found tlmt tho North American Company would not cash hli drafts and that tho steamer's cargo bolongod to other persons. The passengers, seeing that tho company oould provide up rlvor steamers, made preparations to hang Grayson. He got ashore and. Immediately took tho steamer Oharlos Nelson for home. The Progrosso's passengers are either stranded at St. llichaol or returning on her.

Wo havo mado new finds in birds and mammals, and will havo some sur prising records to make when wo get down."

Tho latter was housed atthe old Government refuge sta tion at Point Barrow, and, It Is alleged, refused to tako In any of the 300 shipwrecked men. although ho had ample accommodations. He held tho Goernment houso for his own private purposes, though he had no authority to do so. Had it not boen tor tho efforts of Charles Brower, who was In charge of II. Liobos ft Co.'s station at Point Barrow, tho sailors would have suffered severely. Ho distributed food and provided shelter for them. When Lieut.

I. ljijE i , ni.nu nuftl'JMm1 A SOCIETY KAN AND AN ACTRESS Romance Started In London Three Years Ago and What Camo ot It, Two incidents that occurred during the past weok were Insignificant onough in thomsclves. It was only when taken together that they fur nished the suggestion for n curious story whioh was hoard In some ot the Now York clubs soy oral yoars ago. A New Yorkor well known In society was burlod last weok. On the following day the passenger list of an Incoming steamer contained the name ot a woman who was for a whtlo on tho stage, whore sho was always more noted for hor beauty than her talents. Of ro oent years she has oensed to appear on tho stage, and is found usually on the other sldo ot tho footlights. She has spent much of hor tlrao In Europo since she left tho stage, and her beauty is not Impaired to-day, although It was noarly twenty years ago that sho first camo to this city from a Western town. She was beautiful enough to live down tho curious storlos ot hor life that followed hor from this Illinois town. Bho was engaged, made hor ddbut, bocame a photographlo sensa tion, and wns recognized as ono of the beauties of the etago before she hnd been hero a year. It soon becarao clear that her theatrical prog ress was not llkoly to be rapid and she droppod outofvlow. But London was to know her nnd so was Paris. Sho romalnod in one or tho other ot those two cities during tho greater part of tho yoar. Occasionally she appeared in a box at tho Metropolitan here, nnd sometimes sho was seen on a yncht that used to lie oft West Forty second street But hor lifo. which was brilliant nnd luxurious sovoral years ago, was chlofly passed in Europo, Hor namo as an actress was forgotten. To-day sho Is as unknown on tho stago as sho was when more than nineteen yoars ago she camo from tho West dotcrmlnod to find what fortuno was In store for hor hero. Throo summers ago sho was In London. Bho was living In ono of tho Bolgravla streets. In the Savoy, at tho theatres, and in Hydo Park sho was a familiar sight. Sho was beauti ful still as sho Is to-day and thero was ap parently no end to the luxury In which she was living. In London her associations were with the best-known men. In this country that had not been true. Mon of title and high social position were hor friends In England in placo of theatrical speculators, sporting men. and othors ot that grade. Through ono ot her London friends sho was introduced to a Now Jorkor. at that tlmo In London, ne vlsltod her liouBO. and for a man of his ago foil foolishly and most thoughtlessly in lovo with hor. Ho was much oldor than she. but In view of tho fact that sho was thon about Oil. tho dis proportion botwoon their ages was not so groat as seemed at first. For It was marriage that tho American offered. Ho was not a man of Inrgc moans. In point of family and position there woro none superior to him In New York. He was of fine physique, moreover, and of dis tinguished nppenranee. The marrlaco was an opportunity at which ,iny woman of her lifo might havo jumpod. It meant n distinguished name, tlio honor of becoming tho wife of a man unusually honored nnd respeoted. It did not mean wealth, however. Thoro was perfect knowledge on both sides. He knew what her career had been. It was not until thoy had come to know one another thoroughly that ho fell In loo with her. Sho. on tlio othor hand, knew what his means wero and what his position was. Thero were few phasos of nor lifo that ho hud notheanlof. Their under standing was complete In tholr discussion of the probnhlo marrlaco nothing had boon over looked. Sho knew that to be his wife would mean nothing to her unless he rooolved the support of his family. Thoy wrote that she would bo received. 'To launch her In first rate Kocloty." as tho Duclxn sings in "The Gondoliers." they would not attempt. But they promised any woman who became his wife the valuo of tholr recognition, whatovor that might be. It was in reality a groat deal. The letters on thnt point satisfied hor. Tho question of ids lack of wealth was not so oaslly overcome. Sho had the inoomo of millions, but nothing but her jewels, whatever fortuno her suitor had was only for his lifo. It was u diffi cult matter to decide Her present contalnod luxury, admiration, rlohes. Hor future. If sho married, meant a ood nume. quiet, certainly sooiul ostracism, and the protection of a hus band. Sho puzzled over tho matter, while his friends besought him by word of mouth, by letter, and by cablegram not to make an ass ail irrotrlevnblo ass of himself at his time of life. Ho remained in London, serene under all these entreaties, determined to await her an swor and mnko her his wife if sho could be per suaded to accept him. That moment hnd almost arrlvod, whon a sudden chanoo turned her intentions In tho op posite dlreotion. The King of a small Europoon country had gone to Aix-les-Bains for his an nual cure. Ho was not accustomed to pass tho six weeks there alone. Indeed, the beautiful American had several times gone thereafter tho London season had closed, whon by chance the potentate was undor tho euro of his physi cians. Tho rather premature arrival of tho King at Aix was communicated to her. She was there hereolf within a weok. and her American was ou a steamer making for Now lorkas fast as it could. Ho went to his coun try home that country homo was ono of tho features of the proposed marrlago that had been hardest to overcomo and he made his appearance In society tho next winter with no visible sign of tho wear and tear to his affeo tlons. But that he was seriously in lovo nono of his friends doubted. The three years since that oplsode passed un eventfully to him. Ho lookup his life at the clubs. In society, rind at tho opera just where this affair of the heart had found It. Sho llvod In London and Purls. Tliore wero fower dia monds and fowerhorses. LaBtsummorthoKlng was alono at Alx-les-Bains. Bho was heard of in South Africa. That was anothor question of tho heart. Tho Amorlcan lovor died only a fow days ago after n short Illness, no had been In lied for a short time only, and the news of his fatal sickness could nover havo reached her. But by a curious colncideneo she arrived in New lork. for tho first tlmo slnco tholr parting, on the day after ho was burlod in the grounds of his country home. PAY OF LAWMAKERS. Low Yearly Salaries and the System of Pay ing Thein by the Day. Tho almost lnsurroountablo prejudice which prevails among voters against increasing tho compensation of their representatives has operated thus farto maintain alow standardfor the compensation of legislators. As n general rule, tho pay of members of legislative bodies is fixed In the Constitution of tho States thoy sorve, and It Is usually coupled with tho provis ion that tho compensation shall not be Increased during tlio period for whloh they were oleoted. As a result of tills, any chango in tho rate of pay oould be attained only by tho expedient of an alteration In tho State Constitution, which the legislators themselves would bo compelled either to propose or to upprovo, nnd their reluctance to do olthor koeps nt low figures the ray of officials who most Btntos could well afford to compensate more liberally. For instance. Now ork pays Its loglslutors only $1,000 n year, though up to Jan. 1, 1K08, members of tho Board nt Aldermen, perform ing less ouerous and less Important publlo duties, received $2,000. Executive hoads of departments of New York, whoso duties are fixed and whosepay is prescribed by tho Legls. laturo. get from, $0,000 to $10,000 eoqh.Tmt the legislators who fix these duties and regu late the nay get only $1,000. Pennsylvania pays $l.pfo. Illinois. 1.0pb: Qhlo.iottO; Wyo ming, $500; Maine, $160, and Massachusetts. $700 to lawmakers. A private secretary In New York, nowadays, the secretary to a head of department, goto from $1,800 to $2,500 a ear. or considerably more than Is paid to a eglslator. Tho Injustice of this disparity has ed some States to do away with any fixed salary and su bstlttito a per diem compensation. Somo of the States pay $3, some $4, some $0, and some $0, arid California oxoeods them all with $H aday, Jthodo Island pays the least, $1 a day, but adds $100 for postage and pays mileage, too; but for obvious geographical reasons tho payment of mileage In Bhodo Island does not amount to muoh, the distances being very small. In Utah, a State in which an allowance for mileage would bo of soma aoeouut, iwrhaps, none Is paid ; nolthor Is there any mileage allowed in thovaatLoneHtar State of Texas. Utah legislators get $4 a day, Texas Icidsiators.got $0. The fixing of a per diem compensation for State legislators has had the effect of doing away with one ground of com- (italnt In the matter of their compensation, but t has, at the same time, established another, ea sorlous perhaps, but worthy of being taken nto account. It lis thin: Ho long as legislators Woro paid bytheyoar or by the session it was to their interest to expedite their deliberations, tlnlsli up their work and go homo. When, lowover, in some States the pay was graded iy days service, a new element was brought Into the matter, the advantazo ot protracted sessions; but moat ot tho States have pro vided against this by a tlmo limit for legisla tors. JTho States that have none are Connecti cut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Mtohlgan. New Hampshire. Now. Jersey, New Yfa (whioh does not need to have one paying by the year). Ohio. Rhode Island. South Carolina; Utah, and Wisconsin. Where Yesterday's Fires Were.

James Dunlap, who is now a patient In the New York Hospital, ncoompanlod by James Boss of 110 West 120th street, wont to the flat ot Alice Gray and Georgo Oray. alias Charlock, at 100 West Thirty-third street, about 1 A. M. yesterday, Another guest of tho drays was n woman known as "Gertie." There were sovoral rounds of drinks and by 2:30 o'clook tho Grays' supply of liquor had been exhausted. Dunlap offered to replenish and" gave Gray a $0 bill to buy beer with, expecting that ho would got the chango whon Gray rcturnod. In that ho was disap pointed and a row followed. Gray drew n razor, It is alleged, and slashed Dunlap In a dozen places. Inflicting a wound In the abdomen which was nt first thought to be mortal. John McDuff, tho janitor of the house, hoard the row and ran to tho Grays' fiat. On tho way he met Gray running through the hall toward tho front door yelling that ho would kill any ono who got In his way. Following Gray camo Dunlap, dragging hlm solf through the hall on his hands and knees, too weak from the loss of blood to walk, And after Dunlap camo Boss and tho Gray woman. The woman known as "Gertlo" was not seen aftor the fight, and it Is supposed that sho slipped out by tho hack door and esoaped through tho noxt house to tho street. Char lock, or Gray, got away beoauso ho was the first ono to got out at tho front door. He rushed by Policeman Hauser, who had no moans of knowing that an assault had bcon committed until several minutes afterward, whon Dunlap appeared on tho front steps nnd asked for as sistance. To the bluoeoat Dunlap said: " Get an ambulance. They've dono mo up all right. It was George Charlock. Ho lives at 482 Btato street, Albany, when ho's not hero." Hausor sont to tho New York Hospital for an ambulance and thon arrested Alioo Gray, Jamos f Hobs, and Janitor MoDuff as suspicious per sons. Whon Capt Prlco heard ot tho arrests later in the morning, ho exclaimed: "That's the joint that Jarod Flagg Is agent for. Go and arrest him. too." This ordor was obeyod and nt 0 o'olock, when Magistrate Deuel began thebusinossot tho day hi tho West Fifty-fourth Street Police Court, Flagg was arraigned before him with tho other prisoners. Ho protested and said that it was a oase of police persecution. He doclnred that he had been asleep in tho house at 111 West Thirty third street whon tho row occurred at 100. Ho admitted that ho was the agent for both houses. In spite of Flagg's protest ho was remanded to tho custody oT Capt. Price, who kopt him locked In a oell at the West Thirtieth street polioo station until 3 o clock in tho afternoon, when tho cane was oallod for a second hearing, Capt. Price then told the Magistrate that ho had not been able to capture Charlock and that Dunlap would not bo aolo to leave tho hospital for two qr threo days. Ho asked for the further detention of Flagg and the witnesses. Magistrate Deuel said that that would bq Im possible. Ho held tho Gray woman without bail, but discharged Flagg. Boss, and McDulT, "Well, your Honor," said Capt. Prlco. "will you entertain a complaint against Flagg for koonlng a disorderly houso ?" "I oan hardly do that to-day." replied the Magistrate. unless you have previously warned him that ho had disorderly persons In his house, and that they were using that houso for immoral purposes. However, 1 suppose that you can And Flagg at anytime, and when ever you havo the evidence I will gladly Issue a warrant." " Oh. yes." said tho Captain, "I can find him at any time unless he jumps the county, and if ho does that I'll jump aftor him quick." In the prisoners' corridor in the station Flagg tried to spoak to Capt. Price. "Go away from me," growled tho Captain. I wouldn't talk to you unless there wero four witnesses and a stenographer present." Flagg said afterward that Price had doolared that ho would drive him out of town If lie never did another thine in his lifo. It was Flagg's testimony at the time of the Lexow Investigation that resulted In Price being Indicted and suspended. Capt. Prlco received by mail later an affidavit signed by Jarod Flagg. Jr., nnd attested by a notary publlo. , Tho affidavit set forth that Flagg had canoelled his lease ot the houses at 100 and 111 West Thirty-third stroot, and that in no way, either dlreotly or Indirectly was he connected with the two premlsos.

Thero will be no vacancy upon tlio bench of the Court of Geutsral Sessions until lltou. lleRlstntlon lists are being ororhauled In raany Ataorlcan cities in anticipation of this year's elec tions. In Boston tlie Hoard of Election Commis sioners la revising tbe voting list. Tho mark-offs for non-sssessmont agirrosato 14.Q74 as against 13,201 a year ao. Fart of the shrinkage is accounted for by enlistments in tho army. Borne of the persons who are most strongly Im pressed with what they deem to be the unconstitu tionality of the law adopted at the recent epeotal session of tha Albany Legislature for the regulation of elections In New York aro apparently unaware of the fact that tho same questions which they now raise have been disposed of judicially many years airo. The metropolitan police district, created during the tenure of Oor. King, included four counties. New York, Klnirs, Westchester, and lllchmond, and the power of appointment was vested in the Gov ernor. Opposition to this bill on tha ground of Its unconstitutionality was carried Into court without success, and the metropolitan police force remained In existence as such until another Legislature, many year later, altered the district divisions and the form of appointment. Exclusive of $5,000,000 for the cars of the insane, (2,100,000 for the maintenance and repair ot tho canals, and $4,100,000 for school purposes, tha total expenditures of New York State this year as raised by taxation are 80O,000. The Slate's revenue from corporation and corporation taxes la now paying its running expenses three times over each year. The result of last year's election In the Thirty.&nt Assembly district waa vary unsatisfactory to the Re publican!!, who preponderate overwhelmingly In it, having polled 8,300 votes to 3,000 Democratic In 1HD9, but who wen defeated on Assemblyman, their candidate reoelvlng 4,181 to 4,747 for the Tammany candidate. There were 3.000 blank votes, mostly Republican. This year It la stated that Frank Mo Cabo is again anxious for tho Republican Assembly nomination in the Thirty-Ant district and Albert E. Crabtree will bo renominated by Tammany. Vermont has a smaller foreign population than any Northern State east ot the Rooky Mountains. By the last Federal census the total inmber of Irish-born Inhabitants of tha Green Mountain State wa only 9,800. Nevertheless, the present Democratio candi date for Governor of Vermont is named Maloney, the Chairman ot the Democratio Club organization la named Fitxpatrick. and the two Demooratlo candi dates at the last election for Congressmen were Mc Mamis and Fitzgerald. These facts recall somewhat the story which haa become popular at the vaAety theatre when told by an Irish comedian that In a certain town In the West there were only two Irish men. What are they, said tha tourist. The answer was, "On la Mayor, the other la Chief of Police." There Is to be an election for Governor of Califor nia this year, the term of tha present Chief Execu tive of the Golden State expiring In January next. California is one of the few Northern States, one of the very few. Indeed, in which there la a Democratio Governor elected, not as the result of any combina tion between Democrats and Populists, but by tha Democrats opposing a Republican candidate. In the contest of 1804, when Mr. Budd waa chosen, the Republicans had their candidate In tbe field, aa did the Populists and the Prohibitionists. The Populists polled 51,000 votes, the Republicans 110,000, the Democrats 111,000. Tha success of the Democratio party In California In that contest waa doe to the vote ot tbe city of San Francisco, which gave a Demo cratio majority of 12,000 and thus decided the elec tion. In tho other fifty-six counties of California tbe Republicans had a majority of 11,000. Tha State Superintendent of Publlo Instruction has allotted 421,000 to New York for library purposes. This is the local division made of It: Dorongha of Manhattan and the Bronx, 112,000; Brooklyn, (8,000; Quoens, (882, and Richmond, (300. A lively contest la expected In the Fifteenth Con gress district of New York, a district which casta nearly 80,000 voUs. It has been represented for two terms conseouttvely by Philip B. Low, Republican, who owed his first election in 1884 to tho fact that there were two Democratio candidate In the field, and who In the contest of 1808 was jointly the nomi nee of tho Republicana and of the gold Democrats," who are very numerous in this district, more numer ous, perhaps, than in any other In town. Congress man Low is a candidate for renomlnatlon In the dis trict. Report from various counties of th Btata Indi cate that the Republicans ot the interior feel very sanguine of controlling tbe political action ot the next Albany Assembly by a majority considerably In excess of what they had this year. In anticipation of this success, they appear to be already arranging for what the civil service advocates ara accustomed to call in bulletin Issued at the publlo expense, "pro motion by elevation." Speaker O'Orady la to be transferred from Albany to Washington as Con gressman from the Rorhestjr dlstrlot; Mr. Nixon of Chautauqua, the present Chairman of tha Ways and Means Commltteo and leader of the Republican on the door of the Assembly, la to ba Speaker, and Mr. Kelseyof Livingston, Chairman of the Committee on Public Education and a member of the Commltteo on Way and Means, Is to be elevated to the leadership. Mr. Kelsey halls from a strong Republican oounty, In which he haa been four times elected, and he la a statesman of many varied gifts, being the author of the bill Introduced in 1898 In n gard to flsh-catcblng through the lea In whiter, and having been, moreover, one of the most enernstlo supporter of educational legislation in the Btata.
