From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. To Prof. W. H. Pickering of Harvard obser vatory has been assigned the task of finding a suitable site for the big 40-inch equatorial telescope which the University of southern California will put up as soon as constructed. Prof. Pickering came to California to observe the eclipse, and he leaves to-day for Los Angeles. Wllson's Peak, near Los Angeles, has been suggested as the best site for the telescope, which will be the largest in the world. Prof. Pickering will mount a 16-inch telescope with which to make observa tions to determine whether the atmospheric conditions are favorable. These observations may extend over six months. As to the prac ticability of making a perfect 40-inch lens. Prof. Pickering has no aoubt about it. The successful casting and finishing of the 36-inch Lick lens make it certain that one of 40-inches can be completed as well. Prof. Pickering has another mission to perform in finding a suit able location for a 24-inrh lens telescope for astronomical photography. He can give no idea now of the probable site of this great in strument. Stories of Daniel Drew. From the Detroit Journal. The seats in the smoking compartment of the Lansing car the other morning were all filled, and the air was odorous of cabbage leaves and odoriferous of burning Havana tobacco. Each smoker had some stories to tell, and from the lot a few samples are given below: "My first experience," said W. B. Bates, "was in the Sew York legislature. I was a boy then, and I held a clerkship in the document room. Those were the days when Daniel I>rew was one of the princes of the state. One dav Mr. Drew came into the room and ?aid to me: ?? 'Bov, can you write?' ??I said I could. '? 'Well. I want you to fill out these passes.' and he threw down a handful of the paste boards. which I tilled out according to his list, while he slowly and laboriously pat on the sig nature that made them good. When the work was done I said: *? "Mr. Drew, you haven't got another of those passes, have vou?' "He looked keenly at me a moment and then ?aid: '? 'Young man. you're learning your lesson early. What's your name?' "I told him. " ?My secretary,' he continued, 'will be here at noon and will bring yon a pass.' ??I supposed that Mr. Drew would forget all about the matter, but he didn't. I got the pass." tit row t.*t. ''That reminds me of a little experience I had With Mr. Drew." said Capt. Joe Nicholson. "I had a cargo consigned to him with orders not to deliver it without taking Mr. Drew's per sonal receipt. When I went to get the paper he stepped op to sign it and I asked him to have some one identify him as I had never seen him before, and I did not know how big a man h.- was. He readilv complied and then I applied for ?500. as I had authority to do, to tuy supplies. ?? -Certainly, certainly.' he said. 'But first get some one tc identifv you.' "In vain I suggested that he had ju?t given me a receipt as the captain of the vessel. That wouldn't do: and you can believe it took me s >me time to find a person who knew both Daniel Drew and myself." k roll or nxe err. "Well, sir," began Mr. Bates, promptly tak ing np the thread of the discourse. "Mr. Drew came into the document room one day and asked me if there was a bright voung lad about. 1 called a sharp little chap. Mr. Drew pulled from his pocket a big roll of bills.

An American branch of the socialistic labor party of Oreat Britain has been organized in Pittsburg. This is a direct result of the social istic agitation of Prof. J. Hamilton Garside, who was in Pittsburg a few weeks ago. All the members of the new organization were anxious to have it understood that they were not to be confounded with the anarchists, in whose theo ries and methods they do not believe. Thev believe in the perfect system of co-operative production, and demand' that the workers ob tain the undivided product of their toil. Thev want the United States to obtain possession of the railroads, canals, telegraphs, telephones and all means of transportation. Thev demand compulsory education of all children under fourteen, the instruction to be in the hands of the United States; the abolition of the presi dency, vice-presidency and Senate of the United States; an executive board to be established whose members are to be elected by the House of Representatives. They demand universal and equal rights of suffrage, without regard to color, creed or sex, and uniform laws for all the states. When Christians will Take the Karth. From the Missionary Review. We talk of missions. There is no trouble in reaching souls, but it takes a soul to do it. When we are in dead earnest?when all else is practically trampled under foot in our intense desire and determination to bring souls near to God when self-indulgence gives awav, and even self-love, before the burning, consuming flame of devotion to Christ and those for whom he died, we shall sweep the earth as with con flagration.

TRANSFERRED TO AX INSANE ASYLUM. Auburn Special to Sew York Tribune. \\ illiam Pierce, who was probably the oldest convict in the state in continuous penal servi tude, was this morning discharged from the state asylum for insnae criminals, but was not given his freedom. He has lived nearly fifty years behind the prison bars in this city, for the murder of his father. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in Auburn, at Maione Franklin county. August 15.1839. and from that time until this morning had not been outside the prison walls excent when tran iferred to the asylum. Few of those who could tell the tale of the murder of Farmer Pierce bv his boy are living to-day. and all remembrance of the deed has long since been effaced from the mur derer s memory. The pardon which Governor Hill signed has no significance to the demented 5?;'.1}: records of the prison show that William Pierce was sentenced to Auburn for life on August 15, 1839, when he was sixteen years of age. This morning he was taken by Supervisor Grant to YV Ulard asylum for the chronic in sane. As he sat in the baggage-room, waiting r?r the train, he appeared like a giant. He is tall and erect, and weighs 340 pounds. His clean-^haim cheeks hang down almost to his i shoulders, and his black eves were hidden bv overhanging brows. He is a mild-mannered man. submissive to the orders of the officers Much of his past life is blank. He mani fested much interest in the locomotive, which was the first he had seen, and tlif bl ink look on his shaggy facc -eemed to give wav to amazement. He is so fat il..:t he walks "with difficulty, and it was impossible for him to raise his foot high enough to place it on the first step of the car. Thin was dons by the at tendant. and with the aid of some cf ffcd bv standcrs the man was with difficulty placed in the car. An idea of the time Pierce has spent m prison is given by the thought that at the tone Wctme to the prison the Auburn branch , VNfcw *ork Central was not Completed and the tourney from the scene of his crime in Franklin county was made in wagons, through a wild country. This was nine before Auburn was incorporated and twentv years before the insane asylum was completed and readv for occupants It was also several years before Secretary Sew ard made his famous plea of insanity in behalf of the colored murderer of the Van' Ness fam lly, and the law came to recognize insanity as an excuse for crime. Had it been otherwise Pierce would probably never have been sen tenced to prison for life, but would have been Elaced ui an asylum, for there is no doubt but is crime was that of an insane bov. He served twenty years in the prison, and was transferred to the asylum on March 2, 1859 few days after it was completed. Female Longevity. THE FINE ARRAY OF OLD WOMEN IS THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT. Prom the Hartford Times. Longevity is certainly becoming more gen eral than it was, even forty years ago. The harder conditions of life are somewhat amelio rated. Here in Connecticut the newspapers have published in their regular announcements of deaths the departure within the last eighteen months of fifty or sixty persons whose aires ranged from ninety to one hundred years, and seven or eight who were upward of one hun ,.Y El?er Connecticut must be a siugularlv healthy old state, or the term of human life is everywhere throughout this part of the world increasing. In every year, wo think, for the last half century, cases of the death of Con Sf? w'H centenarians have been reported in the obituary announcements, but the propor tion of these to the whole number of deaths is evidently growing. The last three or four years have brought about the deaths of three or four Connecticut persons of one hundred and two to one hundred and six years; most of them, notablv enough, old women. These old *'mort alwa-T" physically small and slight. They seem to grow slighter as they grow older after they get beyond ninety, and their cases gave rise to the saying that such women don^t die, they dry up and blow a monotonous life, without travel or change of scene, is unfavorable to longevity? as in most cases it would certainly seem to be -on the other hand the calm, unruffled flow of ? j nn?xc't,og days of a placid domestic life in and about the old farm house, provided the farmer ? wife be not (as she too often is) over worked, ought to be conducive to length of By- T".e?re centenarians now within the ?* Hartford county who seem to bear out this view, one is in her one hundred and 7***- Tk? oldest woman In the death list of 1888 appears to have been Eunice Cot trell. or Aunt Eunice, the last of the Peqnot Indians, who died last Wednesday at the alleged age of one hnndred and fifteen.

A Philadelphia special to the New York Trihunr asys: Samuel Jones, private secretary to John Wanamaker, said this afternoon: "Mr. Wanamaker was ready to go to Europe last Wednesday, bat he found it impossible for him to leave home at that time. He then made up his mind to start on last Saturday, and was ready to go. all but going. Of all the seasons in the year, this is the busiest one for Mr. Wanamaker. It is possible that he may start next Saturday. Mr. Wanamaker's reasons for going abroad' are to seek recreation and bring home Mrs. Wanamaker, who has been in Europe for some time." Plotted to Poison Banker Bawson. MRS. BAWHOK TRIED TO HIBK A MAM TO PUT POISOK IK HER HUSBAND'S OIK. Another sensation turned up yesterday in the famous Bawson case in Chicago, where Mrs. Rawson is on trial for shooting Lawyer Whitney, her husband's attorney. Tho sensa tion was produced by the reading of the evi dence before the grand jury on the strength of which Mrs. Rawson was indicted, and, singu larly enough, this damaging testimony was presented by the defense. The testimony read whs from the stenographic report of the pro ceedings before the grand jury, and included the evidence given by L. H. Bisbee, a promi nent lawyer, at one time attorney for Mr. Itiiw son. Mr. Bisbee told the grand jury thit he learned of a detective named Hogan who was said to have important information regarding Mrs. Bawson. Bisbee found Hogan, who said he had been in Mrs. Bawson's employ several months. She tried to hire him to put poison in Sir. Bawson's gin bottle, which ne kept in his bed-room. Hogan said the proposition to commit murder was made to him by her at the Leland hotel while he was acting as a de tective for her. He left her at once and went over to Mr. Bisbee's employ. Hogan said that Mrs. Bawson told him thatif he would not kill Bawson she would send for Lee, her former husband, who was in the west, and he would do it. Hogan found out that Lee got as far as Milwaukee on his way to Chicago, and that there he received a post-office money order from Chicago for $20 and got it cashed. Bisbee told of negotiations which he had with M. A. Driscoll, a friend of Mrs. Bawson's. "Driscoll approached me." said Mr. Bisbee."on the subject of a settlement. He first said he wanted ?? 160.000, for that was what Mrs. Bawson valued her dower in her husband's estate at. I went to Lake Villa to see Driscoll on a Friday, and offered him ?35.000. He wanted S'50.0()0. but he finally agreed upon $32,500. Driscoll said he had come from Mrs. Bawson and repre sented her. He was sorry, he said, that the settlement could not be consummated before Monday, because there would likely be blood shed in the meantime. I became alarmed at this, and sent word at once to Mr. Bawson to be careful. Driscoll said Bawson was guarded daiix at the bank and at home, and the only place he was not protected was at church. The next Sunday he was shot at church." The stenographer then read the testimony of Mrs. Hattie Hamilton, a woman who said she lived with Mrs. Bawson before she married the banker. Mrs. Hamilton said the defendant was profane and violent, and swore terribly be cause Bawson did not pay her son Balph, who was emploved in his bank, a larger salary. "She said/' the Hamilton woman testified, "that she would get even with the old Spooken dyke. She would marry him, make his money fly and then get rid of him." - ??? ? Two Pieces of News. From the Philadelphia Record. Mrs. De Fashion (sneeringlv)?"Here I've been wondering where you wero for the past hour, and I find you've been up in the nursery. That new nurse girl is rather pretty, isn't she?" Mr. De F. (quietly)?"The nurse is out. but there are some very interesting children up there." Boulan<;er's Lively Campaign. HE KEEPS OPEN HOUSE TO ALL COMERS AND BE CEIVE8 SCORES OF ARMY MEN. Boulanger is conducting his campaign in Paris with untiring energy. During the week he keeps his house open to all comers, the re ception lasting from 7 a. m. to 7 p. m. On Stin dav and Monday the general was called upon bv"a constant stream of uniformed officers of the territorial army, who had come to Paris to attend the military ball. The scene resembled an army demonstration in favor of the general. Bovalists are still divided on the question of abstaining from voting. On the other hand, imperialists excel in activity for the general. The language of the press waxes warm. The Xational asserts that the dead father of Bou langer was a usurer; that the executed mur derer, Campi, was the general's brother, and that the man murdered, who was named Du crot, was a business partner of Boulanger pere. The squabbles of the general's domestic life, his debts, and intrigues are also detailed. The Boulangists respond by harping upon the charge that the government is employing the secret-service fund in the interests of M. Jacques. Meanwhile the inactivity of M. Jacques annoys his supporters, who are seeking even now another candidate. The betting, in the bourse varies daily. Yesterday the calculators gave Boulanger 215.000 votes against 170,000, and odds were laid against the republican can didate. The influence of the members of the municipal council, who are almost unanimously against Boulanger. is tho leading factor in making his own success doubtful. ?? Brssian Intrigues Against Ferdinand.? According to a St. Petersburg dispatch, sinister reports that come from Bulgaria keep the gov ernment on the alert for developments. Prince Ferdinand's abdication is a question of days. The orthodox bishops are preparing to de nounce him as an oppressor of the faith. The Grathtlanin says that the Jesuits, under the shelter of the prince, arc conducting an active propaganda among the peasantry, promising convent privileges that are not accorded to the orthodox. The Slavonic society sends daily telegrams directing tho movement against Prince Ferdinand. The bishops are confident of ousting the prince. Measures will be taken, when Ferdinand abdicates, to pro vent the return of Alexander without the as sent of the czar. Eminent Germans at an Anti-Semitic Meet ing.?The annual fete of the Berlin students' Anti-Semitic association was honored with the presence of Count Von Moltke. Prof. Berg mann and a number of members oT the court j circles. Dr. Stoecker. in a violent discourse, | declared that the time had come to break the chains of slavery which the Jews imposed upon Christians, and which were sometimes heavier than the chains of slaves in Africa. Court Preacher Bogge delivered a similar address. The Freifinnige Zeilunj laments the presence of aristocrats as a saddening indication of a Judenhetze tendency in the highest quarter. For Prohibition in Pennsylvania.?A Pitts burg special to the New York Tribune, January 21, says: A joint convention of the prohibi tionists and Woman's Christian Temperance union of Allegheny county, was held in Pitts burg to-day for the purpose of arranging the preliminaries of the campaign which is to pre cede the special election to determine the fate of the proposed amendment to the state con stitution prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors. Various ministerial associations at their regular weekly meetings to-day ap Eointed representatives to a conference to bo eld next Monday, at which arrangements for a big mass-meeting in favor of the amendment will be perfected. The United Presbyterian clergymen also decided to distribute amend ment pledges to their congregations. To Colonize the South with Catholics.?A , Catholic colonizing society, with a capital stock I of *100.000, divided into 4.000 shares, has been formed at Flttsbnrg. The objects of the so ciety are to establish Catholic colonies in the south, engage in manufacturing, mining, lum bering. stock raising, Ac. Large tracts of suit able land will be secured in northern Georgia and Alabama, and the capital stock may pos sibly be increased to 81.000,000. Congressional Contest in West Virginia. Col. George W. Atkinson, republican candi date for Congress in the first West Virginia district, has served a notice of contest upon John O. Pendleton, democrat, who has the governor's certificate. Atkinson charges that 400 illegal votes were cast. A New Scheme or Habbob Defense.?The New York Worl/i says a powerful company of capitalists, alreadv"organized, with millions of dollars behind it, has proposed to the govern ment a plan to defend the entrance to harbors by forcing petroleum to the surface of the water through pipes laid at the bottom for that purpose and igniting it with burning bombs, thus creating a sea of fire, through which an enemy's fleet must pass. Whibled to His Death.?James D. Aldridee, of Salem, Mass., temporarily employed by the Diamond State Spring company, of Wilming ton, DeL, was instantly kiUed yesterday. He was attempting to adjust a belt on a machine and threw one leg over the belt and caught it with his hands to stop its motion. This weight tightened the belt and he was car ried np and over the shaft, striking his head against the joist of the overhead floor. As he passed ap the belt the first time he screamed and was heard to say: "Oh, my, I am killed." The machinery was stopped as quickly as pos sible, bat not until the unfortunate man's head was beaten into a jelly, his right arm wrenched off and the other broken in several places. His legs were also broken and his body so crashed that everv bone in it seemed to have been broken into fragments. Indian Relics In West Virginia, nmuumo discoveries bt a r*pbm?kt*tits or iu smithsonian. The Romney, W. T*., correspondent of the Baltimore Sun say?: There has been a great deal of excitement here for several day* over the discovery of Indian relics and remains by Mr. Warren K. Moorehead, of the Smithsonian Institution. He was sent here on the strength of s letter in the flun stating that the recent floods in the south branch of the Potomac had nnearthed a great many skeletons. On Wed nesday Mr. Moorehead made a tour of inspec tion up the river, and as?the signs seemed very favorat>le, he procured a number of men the next day and dug several holes on Pancakes island, about ton miles above this phu-e. The result of the digging was the finding of several skeletons, pipe*. bone bends, panther teeth worked up in the shape of ornaments, pottery and copper plates, beside the skeleton of an immense buffalo, buried in a bed of ashes about six feet deep. Friday the party went down to the Hanging Rooks, about four miles below here, whore, ac cording to Kerchival's historv of the valley, "a furious battle whs fought between the Dela wares and Catawbas. which resulted in the massacre of the whole party of the Delawares." Here they dug along the river bank on Mr. Herriott's farm. Eleven skeletons were found inside a space of twenty feet. One of them must have been the skeleton of a giant, as the lower jawDone was almost twice the ordinary size. The femur was two inches longer than that of a six foot man. They had been buried in various positions?some stretched at full length, some sitting, and in some cases three or four iu a heap, some of them with their feet sticking np. To-day your correspondent wit nessed the opening of a very large mound about half a mile from town, on the farm of Mr. Garrett Postares, which contains a great many valuable trinkets, strings of beads, pot tery, war hatchets, and several large sheets of mica, which they used for mirrors. Mr. Moorehead, being an expert, considers this last the oldest mound he has ever opened. Patsey Cardiff Whips Jliu Fell. A FIFTEEN-BOUND FIOHT AT MINNEAPOLIS LAST EVENING. The fight between Patsey Cardiff, of Minne apolis, and Jim Fell, the champion heavyweight of Michigan, took place at Minneapolis Tues day evening. The contest was to be fifteen rounds. Marquis of Qtieensburv rules, for $250 a side and 75 and 25 per cent of the gste re ceipts. Small gloves were used. Fell weighed i 160 pounds and Cardiff 180 pounds. Doth men were in excellent condition. Betting was abont even just previous to the fight. Fell pushed the fighting from the beginning. Cardiff, however, claimed first blood. In the third round Fell did some very hard hitting, forcing Cardiff about the ring and lauding sev eral very heavy blows about his head. Fell was again leading in the fourth round. Cardiff came to the ehair at the close with one eve partly closed. Fell's strength appeared to be failing in the eleventh round and many of his blows fell short. Cardiff's round again. The close of the twelfth round showed another nearly even round, the principal points of in terest being a terrific blow by Fell between Cardiff's eyes. However, it was becoming ap parent that Cnrdiff was getting the best of the fight. Fell's left eye was closed. The thirteenth round was rather tame, as was the fourteenth, till just at the close, when Car diff landed heavilv with his left on hiB oppon ent's cheek. In the closing round it was a gen eral rough and tumble. Fell was winded, but pluckily held his own. even when forced to the ropes and half way over them. They fought viciously, clinching and wrestling, and wholly disregarding the orders of the referee. There were numerous cries of foul by Car diff's friends, and at the close the referee gave him the fight on that ground. Neither of the men was very badly punished, though Cardiff was in the best condition. The Suppressed Ueffckeu Documents. The dark allusion of the Cologne Gazette to certain documents in the Geffcken case, which the paper said were not published because political and dynastic interests might suffer, according to a Berlin dispatch, refers to letters written by Morier while at Darmstadt, in which Princess Alice and several English royalties are involved. According to statements current in the official circle, if Prince Bismarck is forced by political exigencies to publish these letters, they will prove that Frederick aud his wife were indiscreet, and divulged the plans of Prussia, and that even before the openiug of the campaign of 1870. Darmstadt was the focus of intrigues against the unification of Germany. The documents that are withheld may afford ample justification of Bismarck's accusations against Frederick in his report to the present emperor, but the strength of the public feeling against further scandal has become so extremo that the semi-official press has received hints to cease discussing the subject. Which? and Why? From the Boston Courier. There is food for reflection in a couple of ad vertisements which appear side by side in a contemporary, which read, with the omission of address, as follows: WANTED?Young lady in publishing office; quick writer; $4 a week. WANTED?An experienced girl for general housework in a family of seven; assisted about washing; wages ?4. It will bo observed that the rate of compen sation is the same in both these cases, but that while the ??lady" receives simply ?4 per week the '?experienced girl" gets in addition her board and lodging. Whether gentility?the word most beautifully expresses the thing?is worth what it costs must seem at least an open question when the rate is so high. The Parnell Commission. A WITNESS WHOM AN ARCHBISHOP ADVISED SOT TO PAT HIS BENT. When the Parnell commission assembled yesterday morning Sir Charles Russell, 'of counsel for the Parnellites, said that, owing to the publication of a later para graph in the Sheffield Tt U-grnph, and in order to save time, he would not press his appliea- i tiou for a writ against that paper for issuing a i placard containing objectionable words with reference to the case before the commission. Presiding Justice llanuen expressed his gratification at this notion of the counsel, and said he hoped that no fresh applications of a smilar nature would be made. A mau named Farragher deposed that Arch bishop Walsh, in Mr. Davitt's presence, had advised him not to pay his rent, and that he (Farragher) was evicted. He was afterward employed in the offices of the Dublin branch of the league. Witness also testified that he had carried letters, some of which contained checks, from Mr. Patrick Egan to Mullett, the invincible. ? ? Children of the Stage. HOW THET ABE CAKED FOB AND FED AT .MACREADY HOUSE, LONDON. Children of the stage are befriended at Ma cready house, Henrietta street, Covent Gar den, says the Quicer, where temporal and spir itual benefits exist on behalf of employes at various places of amusement. A young pro fessional practically exemplified the esteem in which the refreshment buffet is held by show ing a visitor a well-cooked steak, the price of which he decided would be a shilling: "No, sir," said the girl, "steak and mashed for four pence-halfpenny," and she added that it had been cooked by *'a brick of a matron!" Besides the creature comforts, here is rest for tired | performers, and friendly sympathy is spreading I around a gentle Christian influence: how many of those who smile upon the stage have needy homes and weary hearts, and at Macreadv house confidences are outpoured to friends who care alike for soul and mind and body. There are evangelistic meetings for boys, and a gymna sium and mutual improvement society. A lad about nine years old proposed a gift to her majesty of a card-board model of a yacht, but the children of Macready house made their offering in a different form?they sent the queen a footstool, on which they had worked in beads the Victoria Regina Lily. Quite a throng of little performers now enter tain the public?some are but eight and nine, some only four; they would be much better sheltered nnder Christian care, but, alas! the demand for children as performers is increas ing, and to these little ones the help of Macready house is invaluable. All the chil dren who played "Alice in Wonderland" fre quented the institute, from ?"Alice" herself to the "Glowworm." a child of four; "and dear, intelligent children they were,", say the workers in the home. The upper part of Macready house will be devoted to an orphanage for destitute theatrical children. A noteworthy feature of this mission is the endeavor to place each girl and child in com munication with a lady, who undertakes to write her a letter every month. Many foreign ers have shared in the benefits of this much needed institute?we read of an Arab, em ployed in the hippodrome, who on wound his turban, and with clasped hands cried oat to God to bless the Theatrical mission?and" the hospitality shown to foreigners haa resulted in the desire that the mission may spread out branches to Paris, Berlin. Bwitaerland and Italy. A convention of confederate pensioners of North Carolina was held at Baleigh yesterday. Two hundred veterans were in attendant)*. They met to petition the legislators to inorease pension appropriations. RoYAL BAKING POWDER ABSOtUTEtY PURE It is a scientific fact that the ROYAL BAKING POWDER is absolutely pure.
