FEW cases IN WniCH civii. service CANDinATES have tkied to beat the examiners. "We have had three or four cases," said one of he board of civil service examiners to a Star reoiter to-day, " where there was clear evidence of olluslon between applicants undergoing examination. There were only three or four cases out of everal hundred, which is a very good record, hey were cases where two persons sitting together oth made the same egregious blunders. If both ,nd been correct In their answers It would b' unjlr to Inr-T collusion, but when one makes an greglous blunder, and the other makes the same !!rl^.e?r.txa -v'lbe Implication Is pretty strong." " Did these attempts at rraud come rrom any parIcular section or the country?" asked the reorter. " V?' l?ey ^Present different sections.

The President and His Guests. 'at times in the north atlantic sqcadkon?the torpedo experiments. The review in Narragansett bay of the torpedo experiments by the North Atlantic squadron. In the jresence of the President and the Secretary of the Savy, yesterday, proved a magnificent success. The exercises took place at the extreme north end >f Conanlcut Island, whither the squadron proceeded shortly before 10 o'clock. An hour later the despatch, with President Arthur, and the Albaiross, with Secretary Chandler, got under way. On he former were the Attorney GeneraL Mrs. Brewrter, Miss Frellnghuysen and several others. On the latter were Senators Hawiey, Miller, Butler and Mdrich; Mayor Latrobe, of Baltimore; Commander rohnson, Captains Selfridge and Yates, Baron tosen, the Russian consul- Mr. G. P. Wetmore. Madam De Struve, the wife of the Rnsalan Bdnls! 5raRLJ2l Wart> of the Swedish legation, and w . ^ Edwards, Mrs. Chandler and a number of nher ladles. When the Secretary arrived up the bay the squadron passed in review as a column of iiUps, and then proceeded to torpedo practice. The ifxpioslons were very successful, and seat large rolumes of water over the ships, and there were lively movements to get under shelter. Dmlng the ifternoou Mme. De Struve and Senator Butler -ailed upon President Arthur, on the Despatch, jolng on the Mariana, which had brought the former and a distinguished party down from Bristol, at 2 o'clock President Arthur and Secretary Chanller each gave luncheon to their guests.

Secretary McPherson baa received a letter from a gentleman in Mississippi, who Is a democrat and a Cleveland man, denying the slander published against Blaine in the Indianapolis SetUlneL The writer says he lived In Kentucky -when Blaine was teaching there and when he married; was upon friendly and even intimate terms with him during that period, and know? of his owu personal knowledge that tne statement concerning his marriage was false. He says that Blaine was very popular there, though some of the young men used to get a little jealous of him sometimes because he was such a favorite among the ladles. The Chinese War Veuelw* thkib m0hk powerful ironclads not engaged in the kecixt conflict?what u. s. navy officers sat about it. The opening of the war against China by France, and the easy destruction of the vessels of the former, Is very generally discussed by naval officers In this city. Those most familiar with the coast of China and her navy are inclined to think that the best vessels of the Chinese navy did not take part In this action. The gunboats, which constitute the main portion of the navy are probably about Pekln or up the rivers. These boats were built Id England and France and are of the best modern designs. They are manned mainly by foreigners, or were 6ome time ago, and If the French vessels should come In contact with these, officers of our navy think that the contest would not be so unequal- The opinion Is expressed that even If the tuture phases of the war should fall to develop any higher powers of resistance on the part of the Chinese than the recent contest, still the French would continue until their object had been accomplished. "The French are after commercial advantages," said one naval officer,"and they propose to get them at any cost. That is the policy ot England and Germany. There is no consideration of morality, of human Justice or of human right that will prevent these nations from pursuing a policy lavorable to their commerce. I recollect once that the Japanese government wanted to establish a quarantine In order to prevent the spread or cholera. Our minister. Gen. Bingham, consented, but the English and German ministers lefused because it would Interfere with their commerce, and when the Japanese stopped one of their vessel^ a manof-war went down and brought the ship up to the harbor. There Is no use, wnen the Interests of a nation like England or Germany are involved, to a talk about justice, or even mercy, for they recog- c nlze nothing of the sort." s Relic Huntera* gathering chips op marble from the washington monument. An elderly gentleman and lady were picking their way through the plies of marble chips that lie about the stone-cutters'shed In the monument a grounds to-day and now and then stopped to pick g up a small piece, which ^vas safely stowed away in a the lady's reticule. c "What are they doing?" said one of the stone- I cutters to a Star reporter. "Why they are spoils g fiends." c "SpoDs fiends?" repeated The Star reporter. "That Is what we call them?spoils fiends," said the artisan. "They are increasing In numbers s now that the work Is nearly completed. That is a very modest couple. Most of them come into the sheds and get pieces from the stones that the men are cutting. They are taken away as relics of the c monument. Some people have a little picture of a the monument or of Mount Vernon painted on t them, and I see some of these are offered for sale ? now in the stores. "Yes, we have about a hundred or more every * day come to ask for pieces of stone. Before the c last course of the shait was finished the spoils 0 hunters were always anxious to know at what t height the stone was placed that the chip came I; from, and I have marked the height on hundreds ? of stones for such people. They do not annoy us. " All kinds of people come. Sometimes ladies richly v and fashionably dressed tjonae in to get a relic, and ? again you can see people come down herewith ' market baskets and llll them up with chips. I , suppose these people with baskets propose to col- ? lect them for sale." " The key stone, which is to be placed inside the * pyramid of the monument a little below the apex , or capstone, Is being cut now. Many relic hunters J have already bespoken chips from the capstone : vfrhen that Is finished. The chlpplngs from the , stones are turned over to the District government i and will be used in making road beds. J Belling on the Dean* J the jumping bean op mexico and a new form i of vice it has introduced. i The Jumping bean of Mexico Is at present creat- < lng a small sensation In town. By some means a 1 pocketful or more of these animated beans have j been brought into the city and distributed. The bean looks as though it were the third part of a 1 glove about a third of an inch in diameter. It is * brown and vhree of them grow together In a pod j on tall trees found In hot districts of America. When placed on any surface the bean moves about with little sposmodlc Jerks. Its motion Is very erratic. One use It has already been put to is to 1 minister to the spirit of gambling. In some quarters where two or three beans and their owners have assembled together ther# are exciting con- 1 tests, on which wagers of considerable amounts , are staked. A little circle Is drawn on the table and the beans are placed In the center. Then a ( "pot" Is made up, ten, twenty-five and even as I much as fifty cents or a dollar being requlredto t "come In." The owner of the bean that tumbles e out of the ring first takes the pot. Where only e one bean Is produced the circle is divided Into seg- ? ments and the players bet on the segments. The < person batting on the segment over which the i bean passes In leaving the circle wins the money. Whenever one sees half a dozen persons with their j heads bent closely down over a table, holding ( their breath In subdued excitement, he may be t sure that there Is a Jumping bean there. Some I t persons curious to discover the secret of the f motive power of the bean have dissected theirs ? and discovered that imprisoned In the core of the ? bean Is a little wriggling worm. Its movements cause the eccentric conduct or the bean. Some i of these beans were exhibited Saturday In the ?; seed room of the Agricultural department. Mr. ( Longley, who Is In -charge of the room, says, c however, that they will not be distributed as < other seeds. 1 ? , Poor Prospect for a Frek Bridge.?There i seems to be little propect of getting a free bridge 1 over the Potomac this summer at least. As hereto- t fore stated in The Star the offer of the owners of ( the Aqueduct bridge to sell the bridge under ] the terms of an act of Congress, passed some 1 three years ago, has gone to the Attorney t General tor his opinion as to whether the title is good. The Attorney General Is at the sea shore. ^ It ne decides that the deed Is good the question of e accepting the offer of the Aqueduct bridge owners j will then have to go the Secretary of War. Lawyers say the Secretary of War cannot, in view of t the time since the act was passed, which the Dridge owners now wouid take advantage of, accept the i offer. If this Is so the matter will have to go over t until the next session of Congress. In the mean- s time tolls are still collected by the Aqueduct bridge c owners. Fort Sumter Has Fallen for a Fact* From the Charleston News and Courier. Fort Sumter has literally fallen. It is now only one story high and has but half a dozen guns, not j one of which could be used.

Mahone meeting at Yorktown, Va.. last Monday fighting commenced simultaneously with the or- I ganlzatlon, and was kept up for fully two hours. 1 Pistols were drawn and knives and clubs freely 1 used. Finally the two factions were separated, the < room divided off and two conventions were held in ) the same room, sending two sets ot delegates. 1 After the adjournment of the convention the fight* < lng was renewed on the outside of the building and 1 In the streets. j Lively Row in a Court Room.?In St. Louis, Ma, yesterday, the court bad scarcely pronounced sen- ] nounce against Henry Lee, a negro who had been t convicted of larceny, when the prisoner seized a l chair, and with an oath aimed a heavy blow with it i at Officer Flynn, who had been the chief witness ] against him, and who happened to be sitting In one \ of the Jury seats The blow would have killed him t had It descended with the original force, but Prose- s cutlng Attorney Clalborn and Officer Badger rushed j forward, so that Officer Flynn was but slightly i hurt. But the negro was upon him and choking t him before the others could act. Then ensued a < desperate struggle, in which the negro displayed i herculean strength, and for a time it appeared as i though be woula kill the officer. During the uproar c a table was smashed to pieces and a chair demol- t tshed. The negro finally was pulled away, but not t until he had nearly bitten off several fingers from t Officer Badger's band and dealt a number ot hard i blows. Judge Laughlln then beard the remaining eases against him and gave him six months in one and twelve months in the other. c To Reward Lieut.
