old '-John Bull" loco
motive drawings of the
new English locomotive
which the Pennsylvania
railroad company has
ordered from England.
The old "John Ball"
was the first locomotive
brought from England
to this country, and it
?et the pattern from
which American locomotive builders worked.
Now. again, after the lapse of nearly sixty
years, an American railroad company goes to
England for a locomotive. The "John Bull"
Was in continuous service for thirty years, and
dnring that time was Americanized considera
bly in appearance. When it came it had no
cab. bell, or pilot and looked, as English loco
motives are apt to look to American eyes, only
half finished. Now it has attached to it the
cowcatcher, head-light, and bell, added by the
mechanics of the Camden and Arnboy road, on
which it ran. Stripped of these American ad
ditions. one cannot help remarking the gen
eral resemblance it bears in outline to the
latest form of English locomotive, the ''com
pound" engine, which the Pennsvlvaniacompany
will experiment with on its fast trains. These
objects, the old locomotive and the picture of
the new. stand in the midst of a collection
which tell in a series of object lessons the story
of the great struggle of the ninteenth century
to get the greatest amount of speed and hauling
power out of the smallest amount of fuel.
There are models and drawings of locomo
tives that marked epochs in railroading, and
models and drawings of vessels that tell the
story of the development of the modern ocean
greyhounds. All around are exhibits that show
the methods of transportation employed by
men in different times and different parts of
the world?the Chinese palanquin, the Lap
lander's reindeer sledge, the Indian traveau.
the Conestoga wagon. the old-fashioned stage
codi h, and scores of other odd-looking vehicles.
But the old John Bull, the first locomotive to
go into actual and successful service nnd to
continue in it represents a good deal of history.
The section of trimportation in the national
museum is in charge of Mr. J. F.lfreth Watkins.
C. E.. who has had ninny years' experience in
the practical affairs of railroads, and besides
has devoted much time to research in the
literature of the subject. Mr. Watkins told a
Star reporter the history of the old locomotive
and something about the coming one.
The "John Bull" was placed under steam and
run from Newark. N. J., to Philadelphia in
l!f7?> for exhibition at the Centennial exposi
tion. It wr.s lust under ste;im at the Chicago
exposition of /ail way appliances in 1.H83. The
engine was built bv Stevenson A Son. New
castle-on-Tyne. on the order of the Camden
and Am boy r-wd. It arrived nt Bordentown.
N. J., in August. 1H31. It was soon put together
and ea.silv accomplished its first task, which
Was to demonstrate to the New Jersev legisla
ture that the use of steam on railroads was to
be the thing for the lath century. Its trial trips
?o convinced the in embers of the legislature
that the Camden and Aniboy company was at
once granted the privi leges it asked for. The
engine when it arrived in the country was sub
stantially as it is now. with inside cylinders,
four driving wheels, mul a tubuiar boiler. The
driving wheels originally had cast-iron hubs,
locust spokes and felloes, and a flanged tire
about five inches wide, shrunk on like the tire
of an ordinary cart-wheel. No tender came
with the engine. To take its place when the
first experiments were made, a tender was im
provised from h:i ordinary construction car. with
a wUiskv barrel to hold the water which was
fed to the engine through hose made bv a
shoemaker out ?>f leather. The illustration
above shows the old locomotive as it was first
run. Afterward, when it was in actual service,
a queer-looking tender was attached to it.
looking like a high box or a little house on
wheels. At the top of this, in the rear. w;-.s a
?eat with a cover or top like a buggy-top.where
the fireman sat. From this elevated perch he
could look out ahead and manage the signal
ro(>e from the train behind. The John Bull
was not th> first locomotive in this country,
but it furnished the tyj.e from which the loco
motives of the present day have been derived.
Working from it for half a century the English
builders have produced, as the highest results
of their labors, the ??compound" locomotive of
the I>readntught type, such as will noon be
running experimentally on the Pennsylvania
road, and Kiuerican builders have developed
the fa*# express locomotives and the huge
frtiglit moguls.
The Jolin Stevens' experimental locomotive.
Mi American product, preceded the John Bull
by six years, but no locomotive of that type
ever went into actual service. The "Stour
bridge I.ion." of which a full-sized model
?tan.Is next to the "John Ball." was brought
from England, and made a trial trip at Holies
dale two years before the "John Bull" came,
ana was the first locomotive run over n track
built for traffic in the western hemisphere. It.
however, never made but one trip. A model is
shown, too. of the "Tom Thumb. ' a locomotive
Constructed by Peter Cooper, and experimented
with on the Baltimore and Ohio road, near Bal
timore. a year l>efore "John Bull" came over.
Other locomotives were built in this country
?bout the Mime time, including the "grasshop
pers" introduced by the IWltunore and Ohio
road, but thev have all disappeared, leaving in
the field only the direct descendants of the
"Johu Bull.** The John Stevens' experimental
engine is important, however, becanse it rep
rewouted a step which was necessary to the
development of the modern locomotive. Ste
vens was the first to make m multi-tubular boiler.
The original multi-tubular boiler constructed
by bim for this locomotive is among the ex
hibits lu the section of transportation,
fltevens deemed it necessary to have a rack rail
to run his locomotive with. This was a cogged
rail between the tracks, and the one driving
wheel which was toothed or cogged ran upou
this. A circular track was constructed at Ho
bokeu and the locomotive was run on this. It
was regarded as a great curiosity in its day.
The speed attained was estimated to be 10
Wiles an hour.
The difference in the conditions prevailing
on English and American railroads accounts
largely for the difference in the results ob
tained" in working after substantially the same
pattern. Tlte levelness of English roads, their
freedom from sharp curves, the comparatively
short length of hauls, and lightness of loads,
have had their effect iu producing types of loco
from 1*40 to 1**?0 the prevailing type in
England was a locomotive with one pair of
drivers. These locomotives reached a high
rate of speed. Ihe lucrease iu the weight of
trains, however, demanded a heavier locomo
tive with more "feet." and locomotives with
two pairs of driving wheels, with inside high
pressure cylinders, came into use. These engine*
were developed to great perfection, and are
?till in use. though the "compound" loconio
tires are now being rapidly constructed, and
bid fair to soon drive all other* off the track.
"The President Gortield." a locomotive of the
London and Northwestern road, represented
the highest perfection reached in the type pre
ceding the "Dreadnaught."
The Dreadnaught. the new English loco
motive, like all English locomotives, is severely
plain in appearance. There ia very little cab
and no pilot. It looks more like an American
locomotive than its predecessors because it haa
outside cylinders. The cylinders of other Eng
lish locomotives, beginning with the "John
Bull," were put underneath the boiler, inside
the frame of the engine. The two cylinders of
the Dreadnaught are pnt outaide.to make room
for a third cylinder inside. This is why it is
called a "compound" locomotive. Webb, the
designer, took the idea of the compound marine
engine and applied it to the locomotive. The
outside cylinders are high-prsssnre cylinders.
The steam, after passing through these cylin
ders at high pressure, is conducted to the cylin
der inside, being superheated 011 the way. and
there works at low pressure. The piston of
the low-pressure cylinder drives the forward
pair of drivers, the'axle of which is bent so as
to form a crank. Having performed its work
here the steam escapes through the smoke
stack, all of its energy having been expended.
By this arrangement, it is claimed, a consider
able increase of motive energy from a given
amount of fuel is obtained.
The main difference between the new and
the old English locomotive is in the application
of the principle of the compound engine. In
working order the Dreadnaught weighs 95,200
pounds, and hOT tender weighs 27,000 pounds.
Her driving wheels are 6 feet 3 inches in
diameter. The outside cylinders are 42 by 24
inches, and the inside or low-pressure cylinder
30 bv 24 inches.
It'was an engine of this pattern that made
the marvelous runs between London and Edin
burgh last summer when the racing fever on
English railroads was at its height. In regular
working the Dreadnaught has taken a train
weighing, with engine and tender, 464.000
pounds up a grade of 70 feet to the mile, four
and one-quarter miles long, at the rhte of 33
miles an hour. She has pulled a train weigh
ing 544.000 pounds from Enston to Crewe, 158
miles, in three hours and thirty-four minutes,
including two stops, or at the rate of 44.3 miles
1>er hour, and without stoppages 46 miles an
It should not be assumed that the action of
an American railroad company in sending to
England for a locomotive is an acknowledg
ment that the English locomotive is the best.
It indicates the growth of a liberal spirit among
tailroad managers that inclines tiiem to take
advantage of any good points John Bull lias
discovered without regard to the fact that they
are of British origin. This spirit has led to .
the adoption on American railroads of the Eng- |
lish semi-pliore system of signaling, after !
many thousands of dollars were spent in trying |
to devise a new system purely American. A j
similar feeling is evidenced in England by the
introduction of 1'nllman cars to run ,
between London and Brighton. It is not
certain how the English locomotive will
behave on an American railroad.
The American locomotive builders have given
nmch attention to the development of the
heavy freight engines for long hauls, often *
over stee p grades, and have produced a loco
motive which for its purpose has no rival in
the world. It remains to be seen whether the
fast express locomotive is equaled or excelled
in any respect by its English competitor. It is
not a question of speed merely. There are
trains run now in America at as high rate of
speed as any in England. Mr. Watkins said he
thought the trains on the West Jersey road
were run as fast as any in the world. There is
a question of economy in the consumption of
fuel. The English locomotive uses at home a
coal that is softer than American anthracite
and not so soft as the bituminous. With this
coal it accomplishes a great deal of work
at small expenditure. Whether it will succeed
so well with American coal is a question to be
determined by experiment. In order to cross
the mountains trains running between Philadel
phia and Pittsburg have to be drawn by loco
motives catmble of doing the hard work of
mountain climbing. Such locomotives are not
economical on the many miles of dead level
stretch. The railroad company will determine
by experiment, probably, at what cost the
"compound" will do this work. The conditions
prevailing on American railroads in the more
thickly settled portions of the United States
are approaching those prevailing in England.
The great eastern lines are gradually straighten
ing their curves, and many roads now are in a
condition which would permit the running
over most of their distance at least of the four
wheeled truckless English cars.

The Sky Divided up Among Observa
tories of the World.
All the nation* of the earth that hare observ
atories and big telescopes ore about to join to
gether in the work of taking a photograph.
The sky is the object to be photographed?the
sky with all its myriads of stars. As no pho
tographer can get a point of view from which
he can focus the whole sky at once, the heaven*
will be divided np into sections, and farmed
out to different nations. Capt. Phvthian. the
superintendent, and the astronomers at the
naval observatory are anxious to take part in j
this international enterprise, but by reason of j
the failure of Congress to provide the ?50.000
asked by the Navy department for the work,
they have been obliged to delay their prepara
tions until Congress meets again. The money
is required for the purchase of a photographic j
telescope and pointer, the construction of a |
suitable building and domes, the mountingof j
the instruments, and to pay for material for I
photographic work. In case Congress makes j
the appropriation early in the coming winter.
as is expected, it is thought at the observatory (
that the required instruments may be com
pleted by the time the new observatory build- |
ings to be erected on the site north of George- 1
town are ready to receive them.
The general plan of the proposed work was ?
decided at a congress of astronomers held in (
Paris in April. 1R87. Lieut. Winterhalter, of
the navy.now attached to the naval observatory,
represented the United States in that congress, i
The character of the instruments to be used
was determined, and many other matters, to
enable an observer in any part of the world to
engage in the undertaking with a correct under
standing of what the others were doing so he
could make his work correspond with theirs.
Another conference will be held in Paris during
the exposition this summer and then the final
details will be settled. The heavens will be di
vided into zones, beginning with the north pole.
Each zone or section will be five or ten degrees
in width, and it will bo assigned to some ob
servatory in convenient latitude.
There'is a chain of observatories in this
stellar confederation that will cover every j
inch of the sky. both in the northern !
and southern hemisphere. The French gov j
eminent will establish an observatory for the ,
purpose on Reunion island, off the coast of ]
Madagascar, and the British government will |
have a station in New Zealand. Germany,
England. Brazil. Chili. Spain. Mexico and the |
Argentine Republic have each one instrument j
in process of construction. Australia has two
under way. while France has one already com
pleted at Paris and three others in the hands of 1
a constructor. It is expected, also, that instru- j
ments, of the kind required, will be built for
other observatories in England, Denmark, Aus
tria, and Russia.
The character of the work makes it neces
sary that the instruments used in the various
observatories shall be alike. Care must be
taken also to have photographic plates of the
same degree of sensitiveness. The plates taken
must all be 011 the same scale, so when the
whole is completed the work of one observa
tory can be compared with or combined with I
that of another. The instrument decided upon
is really a double telescope?the photographic
telescope being combined with a "pointer' or |
visual telescope. The ??pointer" is used, as its j
name indicates, in bringing the photographic !
apparatus to bear upon the section of the ?
heavens to be taken. The telescope, which it
is proposed to build for the Naval Observatory. ;
is u refractor, the photographic lens being lli.'i
inches in diameter and the visual lens 11 inches j
in diameter. It will be swung upon an equa
torial axis and have the usual appliances for
operating it. As a star cannot be induced to
remain stationary and sit for its photograph,
the instrument has a clock-work attachment,
which swings it slowly in a circle, so as to al
wavs keep a star or other heavenly body in the
fleid. The two telescopes are to be constructed ;
Of the same focal length, so that the images in
both will be on the same focal plain.
Lieut. Winterhalter told a Stab reporter that I
the work of photographing would be com
pleted in two years after it was begun. The
Naval Observatory is situated in a latitude 1
south of the chief "observatories in Europe, and
to its share naturally falls a zone or field of
work that could not conveniently bo covered
without its co-operation.
Stellar photography, although brought to
perfection by the Ileury Brothers, of Paris, is
really of American origin. Dr. Henry Draper,
Lieut. Winterhalter said to a Stab reporter,
took in 1840 the first photograph that was ever
secured of a heavenly body. The object photo
graphed was the moon. Some years before
when the daguerreotype process was invented
an effort was made with it in France to secure
photogruphs of celestial bodies, but the at
tempt was unsuccessful. Dr. Draper's experi
ments gave an indication of the possibilities of
stellar photography. His work was supple
mented by that of Prof. Bond at Cambridge.
Mass. At thut time the best plates that could
be obtained were not sensitive enough to pro
duce good results in photographing stars. To
get an impression from even the brightest
stars required a long exposure, and the work !
was carried 011 under great difficulties due to
the imperfect operation of photographic plates.
The work was taken up again by I.ewis M. |
Rutherfurd, of New York, who cleared the way
for the modern achievements in stellar photo
graphy. He begin by making his own tele
scopes, and in his experiments conducted from
l%j to 1870. he used collodion plates, wbicli
; were much better adapted to this purpose than
I the materials at the command of his predeces
1 sors. He succeeded in photographing
stars down to the eighth magnitude,
stars not visible to the unaided
eye. lie got pictures of the Pleiades, which
were compared with results of observations by
other methods and ascertained measurements,
and fouud to be mathematically correi t. The
failure of Mr. Rutherfurd's health prevented
his pushing his experiments to still greater suc
cess. He recorded his conclusion that it was
only a question of time when the stars would
be required to chart themselves on photo
graphic plates. All that was needed, he
thought, was a development of the chemical
processes of photography to produce more
sensitive plates and to insure success. He de
signed a telescope for such work, a refractor
corrected for the photographic rays, and the
telescope he designed is substantially what has
been since adopted by and approved by the
astronomers of the world.
achievements of the henry brothers.
The Henry brothefs, famous astronomers of
Paris took up the experiments where Ruther
furd left off. and going on in the same line
achieved marvellous results. At first they con
structed a small telescope, mid the results were
so promising that they were encouraged to try
a larger one. With this instrument ihey were
able to photograph the satellite of Neptune, a
body so insignificant that 110 telescope in Paris
had ever before been able to make it visible.
It is about all that the big glass at the naval
observatory can do. The achievements of this
instrument in the hands of the Henry brothers
at once attracted the attention of scientific men
all over the world. One result was that the
astronomers of Paris proposed the congress
which met in that city in April, 1887. for the
purpose of planning a general photographic
attack upon the sky from every quarter of the
globe. It was decided there to take as the
I standard an instrument like that with which
I such wonderful results hud been produced in
Paris. It wus thought best to seek the co-op
eration of the governments of the world, and to
get each government observatory to take a
share of the work. The undertaking proposed
j was of wich a character that it was not deemed
I likely that private observatories could enter
j into it 011 account of the expense involved.
ADVANTAGES or photographic CHARTS.
One result hoped for from the proposed pho
j tographic charting of the sky is the relief of
I practical astronomers from much of the most
! wearying drudgery of their work. The stars are
charted and catalogued now bv the most patient
toil. When a star comes on the line in the
field of an observer's transit glass its position is
carefully noted. When one considers that the
great telescopes bring to light mi'lious of stars
whose existence was uever dreamed of by the
telescopeless man. the wearying, hopeless, end
less character of the observer's work is appar
ent. Of course the photographs will not do
away with all necessity of observations in th^
usual manner, but they will greatlv assist the
astronomer. Another advantage claimed for
photography is that the element of "personal
error" is almost wholly eliminated from the
operation. The correctness of the record will
not depend on the accuracy of the eve and hand
of the observer. The plates will be made on
an exact scale. From stars whose posi
tions have been ascertained by transit
observation* the positions of any others on
the plate can be determined by measurements
without further observation. Then, by use of
1 his photographic plates, the astronomer can
do his work at his leisure. One branch of the
astronomer's work that will be greatly facili
tated will be the huut for asteroids in the puth
of the ecliptic. 'Now, when an astronomer dis
covers a point of light that be fails to identify
as a fixed star, be has to observe it, perhaps,
night after nigbt. to discover its nature, and
see whether it has any movement that will
prove it to be an asteroid. A photographic
plate of the particular section of the heavens
in which the suspected asteroid appear* would
show at once whether the body belonged to the
group of stars there or not.
Fishermen Preparing fop Their Annual
Campaign on the Potomac.
With but little ice during the winter and no
severe freshet this spring, the fishing season
has opened unusually early. Already the itin
erant fish-peddler is heard on the street calling
"Fresh shad and herring!" The prospects for
a good catch, some of the fishermen say, are
good. Along the river tront it is expected that
the fish will arrive in abundance as soon as the
large nets are sent to the fishing shores and the
fishermen get to work. There are a number of
what are known as summer-seine haulers at
work now and they are supplying this
market with a largo quantity of fish.
It will be a week or ten days before the large
haul-seines will be in operation. Just what
shores art- to be worked this season is not yet
settled. It is not thought that there will be
more than ten at the most where the fisher
men will take their chances to reap a harvest.
Lust year seine was hauled at an extra large
number of shores and some of the haulers lost '
money. Some of the shores rent for from
$1,500 to 5*2.000 in addition to the fee charge 1 ,
for fishing them, so that with die payment of '
the expenses incidental to the prosecution of |
the work, the cost is so great that a good catch
hag to be made to meet expenses.
Stony Point, Fairy Landing. Moxlev's Point,
Gums, and Windmill shores will be fished, and
possibly a few others. Then there is Tent
Landing, rhatman's Point, Greenwav, Fort
Washington. White House and other shores.
Some of them will also afford the fishermen an
opportunity of trying their luck. Now that
the large seines are soon to start there is a de
mand for hands. Fishtown has waked up. and
business has begun in earnest. During the
past week there have been some large arrivals
in Fishtown from the small seines on the lower
Potomac. The fish caught now run larger than
those caught later in the season and bring bet
ter prices. Dot because they are large but be
cause the demand is larger and they find readv
sale. The hucksters who peddle first in the
summer and winter put in a few spare weeks
now disposing of fish from door to door.
The principal fish caught this early in the
season are shad, herring, white perch, yellow
perch, catfish, jacks or taylors and eels. Shad
are selling at $20 to *35 per hundred, while
herring will not bring more than a cent
apiece. Ilockfish, 50c. to 75c. per bunch; white
perch (large sizoi, 50c. to 75c. per bunch; white
perch (small size). 5c. to 25c. per bunch; yel
low porch. 5>\ to 25c. per bunch; catfish and
eels. 10c. to 25c. per buuch.; jacks, 5c. to lt)c.
The fish arrive in oyster boats that have
given up th<* oyster business for the season,
and are usually sold under the hammer at
whatever prices they will brinir. Shad and
roekfish are always in demand, and bring good
prices. Large perch also find ready sale. Cat
fish and eels are sold at cheaper prices because
the demand for them is not so great. That
gives the wharf hands a better chance, and
there are but few of them who fail to carry
home a bunch of either catfish or eels when
their dav's work is finished. Jack fish, or tay
lors as they are sometimes called, resemble the
shad and are often sold rn such to housekeep
ers by dishonest hucksters. They are also
called hickory shad. They are very bonv fish,
and consequently bring small prices.
At the fish wharf the small boy has already
appeared with his pin hook and cotton line.
He thinks that th^tish wharf is the only place
where he can catch fish. Many small bovs
who start from home in the morning to attend
school find themselves on this wharf before
noon, 'lhe truant hides his books under his
vest, and with an old stick for a fishing rod
enjoys the day until it is timo to return home.
During the present week there has been a num
ber of such bovs on the fish wharf who have
succeeded in catching a stray mullet, a Yellow
perch or smelt.
The law passed for the protection of fish in
the waters of the Potomac within the District
of Columbia is still in force. The law was !
passed in March, 1885, to run for five years, so '
that the fish in this part of the river will be !
protected for at least another vear. The first
section of the act provides: "That from and
after the passage of this act, for a term ot five
years, it shall not be lawful to fish with fvke
net, Dound-net. stake-net, weir, float-net, gill
net. haul-seine, or any other contrivance, sta
tionary or floating, in the waters of the Po
tomac river within the District of Columbia."
The second section provides: "That any per
son who shall offend against any of the provis
ions of this act shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, and upon sufficient proof thereof
in the Police Court, or other court of the Dis
trict of Columbia, shall be punished bv a fine
of not less than ?10 nor more than *100 for
each and every such offense, and shall forfeit
to the District his nets, boats, and all other
apparatus and appliances used in violation of
law. which shall be sold: and the proceeds of
such sales and all fines accruing under this act
shall be paid into the treasury: Provided, that
nothing m this act shall be construed to pro
hibit angliug or fishing with the outline, or to
prevent the t nited States commissioner of fish
and fisheries, or his agents, from taking from
sniil waters of the Potomac river in the District
ot Columbia, in any manner desired, fish of any
kind for scientific purposes or for the purpose
of propagation."
This act many of the fishermen sav has been
the means of greatly benefiting the Potomac
fish, because the spawning ground is princi
fully between Fort Foote and the Chain bridge,
?tiring the next session of Congress an effort
will be made to have the act r lie wed. Under
this act all seine-hauling within the District
has been stopped with but verv few exceptions.
The police carefully watched the river and
captured three or four person" caught violat
ing the law. Violations of th s law are gener
ally committed late at night when the officers
are not supposed to be about, but in several
instances the officers were on the alert, and
law-breakers were captured. The police boat,
.Joe Blackburn. will start out on patrol dutv
shortly, and will prevent any violations of this
law. The boat can make good time, and it
will be almost impossible for persons in row
boats violating the law to get i.wav from the
officers on the bout.

The Approach In* Marriage of MIm
Dorothy Phillips.
at Saratoga asd marriage at washisgtos?
Vow* of love in summer, violets in winter,
and s nuptial altar in spring. Thus in quick
transition, in the experience of one of Wash
ington's fairest belles, transpired the tender
transactions of courtship with a happy culmi
nation fast nearing a marriage feast.
Among the summer visitors at Saratoga, the
town of patriotic memories and fashionable re
laxation. were a jurist learned in the theory,
the practice and the application of the law; his
wife, a woman who had long figured prom
inently in social scenes, and a belle who had
many suitors, but whose heart was free. It was
a solstice outing, away from the imagined heat
of the capital. When the journey started it
was only with thoughts of a joyous episode in
life's uneventful routine. When it ended there
was a retrospect of happy experiences and a
prospect of a still brighter consummation.
Among the pleasure-seeking concourse at
Saratoga was Edward Hilton, whose father, the
possessor of a splendid residence in the place,
was established for the summer. The lather
was the confidential friend of A, T. Stewart, the
merchant prince of New York, when alive, and
at his death the executor of his vast estate and
the agent of the deceased millionaire's widow.
His wise management of the estate had swelled
its proportions and the demise of the widow
had increased the cares and responsibilities of
the executor. The usual litigation of heirs fol
lowed. In the trial of the case the son was an
important witness. He left Paris. where his
business kept him. and canae to the United
States to perform his part in that case. The
tedious processes of judicial inquiry and deter
mination detained him. He had gone to Sara
togo with his father's household to await the
end of the labors of the tribunal of justice.
Mr. Arthur McArthur and wife, and Miss Do
rothy Phillips. Washington. D. C., were among
the latest arrivals inscribed upon the page of
the hotel register. The young lady, very beau
tiful. with mean* of her own, but alone in the
world, was enjoying the kind chaperonage of
Mrs. McArthur. She possessed a handsome
face and even more charming manner. The
young charge was also observant of the con
ventionalities of polite ways.
Associate Justice McArthur, a man of Scotch
nativity and lineag- from the sanguinary field
of Culloden, but of Massachusetts childhood,
youth and manhood, u student at Oxbridge
academy and Wilbraham seminary, and a grad
uate of Amherst, had for nineteen years sat on
the supreme bench of the District of Colum
bia. Mrs. McArthur, who was Mary L. Wolcot.
of Boston, daughter of an eminent builder,
had presided over the justice's Washington
home since they took un their residence there
in 1*70. They were well known to the best so
ciety of the capital.
Not a great many years ago Hiram Walbridge.
one of the most popular representatives from
the empire state, married the widow of Major
Blake, a man of spirit and influence, who left
two daughters. One of these daughters mar
ried Dr. Dinwiddie B. Phillips, a surgeon in the
United States army. Two daughters were born,
one Dorothy and the other Frances Phillips.
While the jurist and his wife were mingling
with the gay frequenters of the famous resort
their charge was reigning as the belle of all
the belles of the season. The son of the mil
lionaire trustee of the estate of millions was
caught up by that mysterious influence, and
was soon found foremost in the train of her
suitors. Some were toying with fancy and con
ceit, but Hilton was in earnest. It was a des
perate ease of love at first sight. The beauti
ful n.aiden found her own heart involved in
reciprocal emotion. The contagion of love
had involved two hearts. A diamond ring of
rarest design and unmeasured value e< uled the
proposal aud acceptance. The approbation of
family and friends followed. Secret confi
dences. innocent adventures and the rendering
of.vows filled out the season of summer.
The venerable justice and his wife returned
to the capital with their charge. Their beau
tiful home was now a shrine. The maiden now
was never lonely for lack of remembrances of
love. Her boudoir was a bower of bloom. The
advent of the new year found the parlors of
the McArthur mansion a summer garden of
white and purple lilacs, fragrant violets and
roses in profusion. The ardent lover made fre
oueut visits to his fiancee while time was in
differently trudging along toward the wedding
On the 23d of April, at St. John's, the Episco
pal church of many associations with marriages,
baptisms, aud funeral ceremonies in the high
life of the capital, the last scene in this brief
and prosperous love and courtship will be cele
brated. The bride will wear the nuptial robes
of white in silk with veil and train. Ihe brides
maids. Miss Minnie Brown and Miss Ethel In
galls will wear directoire gowns, with pink
pompadour directoire coats and slippers and
hats, tho gift of the bride, to match, while
Miss Maud Davidge and Miss Sussie Randall will
be robed in a similar toilet in Nile green as a
contrasting hue. The maid of honor will be
the brides sister. Trances Phillips, in an em
pire gown of white, and the bride's bouquet
will be borne by Muriel Ingalls, a younger
daughter of the President pro tempore of the
Senate. Aristides Preston, son of the dean of
the diplomatic corps, and James Morrill, son
of the Senator from Vermont, will lead the
groomsmen, and William Buff and Orlando
Wales will be the chief ushers.
from the groom will be a diamond cluster in
the form of rays of diamonds and other precious
stones, and earrings of pearl. The venerable
jurist will give the bride to her future husband.
The honeymoon will be passed journeying to
many places in their own land, followed by a
brief sojourn at the paternal mansion on the
Hudson, a May voyage to Europe, and a three
years' residence at the Trench capital.
is of medium height, with a slightly oval face,
brown eyes, and glossy black hair. In manner
she has the captivating style of the typical
American girl. She has a melodious voice, and
?her fluency in French will make her 119much a
favorite as a bride in the American colony at
Paris as she was popular as a belle at Wash
The suit of love and the suit at law have been
won. The devices of litigation to break the
will of the Stewarts have turned in favor of the
defendants in the courts, and the case of
Phillips and Hilton will be ratified in favor of
the respondents according to the forms of re
ligion. DkB. B. K.
A Marshal in Luck.
From the LewisUm Journal.
Sometimes the Maine rum-smugglers make a
mistake. One night Deputy Marshal Crowell,
of Portland, was on Danforth street in that
city, looking around, when he lia!f noticed a
team approaching. It would have passed un
challenged, but the driver drew up his horse,
and addressing the deputy, said: "Have you
seen any officer about here?"
"No, I haven't '*
"I'm glad of it."
By this time the deputy had reachsd the
team, and placing his hand on the horse said,
"I guess I'll take this team."
The driver gave a yell, sprang from the
wagon, and made off on ths run. Then Mr.
Crowell took his place and drove to the station,
delighted with his wondrous luck.
Miss Dow, aunt of Julia Marlowe, the actress,
who was severely injured at the Chicago opera
house during Miss Marlowe's engagement there,
has nearly recovered. ^
