A Feminine Craft Which Demands to

There Is a superstition that canoes are

most girlishly feminine of all craft that
float on the waters.

so that she may neither bury her bows
jior stand upon her stern. Forbear to bump
her too brutally upon rocks or to scrape
her over gravel, and you will find her as
steady as a barge, as seaworthy as a dory,
fit to carry through hoppy swells or down
riotous rapids a weight that would make
the clumsier rowboat wallow like a tub.
She will float you sensitively down the
moon-tremulous gloaming of some still

Chinese Capitalists in Mexico.
From Muileni Mexico.
Chinese residents In Torreon, headed by
Koon Churk and Dr. J. W Mnuji, have secured
a concession to build an electric
street railroad beginning at the einetery

founders of the so-called N'rw Torroon,
which Is the western part of the city. It
Is understood that the concession carries
with it provision that It will hold good unless
the old company there will build the
proposed line. and In the event It will not

FORT WASHINGTON, Md.. July 27.?Tomorrow
morning the District Militia, which
has spent a most enjoyable and instructive
week at this place and at Fort Hunt, across
the river, will embark aboard tiie steamer
Jane Moseley for Washington, and, after
marching to the armory, will divide up into
Its component parts and those parts will
seek their homes.
But the homecoming will not ho like the
return from so many camps, with clamors
for a square meal and a satisfactory bath,
for those two requirements have been satisfled
at the camp, the only thing lacking for
the men at either fort being electric ele>

After the mm hail received their pay
there was little for them to do -this afternoon.
Capt. Andrew Parker paid them for

Charles D. Dwyer was the federal paymaster
for the week rfpr-nt at the forts in
the eurvlee of t'nele Sam. The soldiers
march'Hi tip by companies and took their
money?without the least objection.
It was reported this m<tr:i!ng that the

Col. and Mrs. Coffin received the
officers at Fort Washington In their residence.
opposite Col. I'rell's headquarters,
tonight. The cordial relations existing between
the regular and militia officers and
the warm friendships tlrat have sprung ut
between them made the function more than
usually enjoyable, while the gracious hospitality
of Mrs. Coffin and the ladies of the
post who assisted her in receiving heightened
the pleasure of the evening.
All the members of the regiment, both
officers and men. are looking back upon
the experience of the past week as one
that they would not have missed for anything.
It is certain that many of them
had expected to experience a most unpleasant
week. Many had thought the duties
wou'J be irksome and onerous; that there
would be friction; that the men would liud
f?uuv? taucc iu gi uiuiiir, iuiu liiUi llltt LOUT
of duty here would result In decreased enlistments
next year. The lid Regiment considered
Itself most uhlucky in being ordered
t > the river forts, and thought it had drawn
worse than a blank.
What Experience Proves.
But experience has shown the exact opposite
of what was feared has come to
pass. The officers and men are making
ready with regret to leave Fort Washington
and Fort Hunt. On every side they
have met with the most thoughtful con
piun<anun, w iiicii oegan even oeiore iney
arrived. In the erection of kitchens, shower
baths, etc., which were all ready when the
companies entered their ramps. From l^ieut.
Col. Coffin to the most recent recruit of the
regulars, patience, helpfulness and good
fellowship have been the ruling characteristics.
in fact the members of the District
regiment have been treated like guests, and
the kindness of the'r reception has not been
lost upon them.

more men Is true, ami further the government
wishes to train militia near the cuast
defenses so that it will be able to help in
time of need, but no more general order
could have evoked the sincere courtesy tiiat
has characterize*! the attitude of the regulars
toward the militia at th^se maneuvers,
for it was genuine and spontaneous. Not
so many years ago, when regulars and
militia seemed bound to clash this situation
would have appeared impossible?perhaps
millennial?like the lion lying down with
the lamb. Furthermore the work of the
regulars ai the post, alv.avs exacting and j
[ burdensome from lack of numbers, has
I been increased greatly bv the presence of
I the militia, yet all ttie added labor has been
; performed cheerfully, whitens, it is con!
ceded, il would have been no mean hook on
' whieh to hang a grievance.
Compar.y officers and men who handled
the guns. among the reserves, are enthusiasri'
over the progress that they n-.ade.
Possibly no mil'tia g:>n tew reached perfection
In handling the givat engines of
death, but many or them came within a
second or two in equalling the records made
by tiie regular crews in getting their guns
into action. The careful < xplanations of the
working of the guns and the assistance of
tlie regulars In initiation into practical details
bote fruit at once.
Quickly Becomes Proficient.
Tt was rot long: before each man became
familiar with his appointed task, and then
if was for th<1 drills to pet the men working
together with the precision of clockwork?
and the drills did it. When it is considered
that this has b? en accomplished in live
days, and in most cases in three, the rei
suits seem marvelous.
I It is, of course, partly duo to the intelligi
' *.f 11: * militiamen ai d t > their quick*
ness in grasping !?.'?.'?il?* and understanding;
(explanations, but even the acuteness of
i t :.? pupils' iiiinds does not detract from the
J credit due their teachers.
I For the supports who were on outpost
i duty and defensive work there was
no to learn the work at the big

""THE 5>"pE
keenest competition were the night attacks
by land?Tuesday night by the Fort
Washington supports against Fort Hunt
and Wednesday night i>y the Fort Hunt
supports, reserves and regulars, upon Fort
Washington. In each case both attacking
and defending parties were on their mrttle.
and there was a tincture of reality to the
operations despite She prohibition of the
[ use of blank ammunition for the rllles. This
i gave the spice of excitement necessary to
actual adventures. The landing parties that
got wet had jumped into real water, and
the approach and struggle at the shores
were under conditions that did not ca'.l
for a vivid imagination to conjure up the
picture of the midnight descents upon an
enemy's coast in real warfare.
Both sides prepared for their campaigns
with great care and secrecy, not even Col.
Coffin being informed of all the details of
the contemplated ruses.
Enthusiasm in Lnnd Attacks.
In the land attaoks the men who participated
were full of enthusiasm, and s"em?d
actually to be striving as tf for real victory.
There was plenty of competition and I
rivaltry, but no jealousy. The militia at
fort Washington were fuliy convinced that
nobody could be better situated than they
were, while those at Fort Hunt were perfectly
certain that the conditions surroundng
them were Ideal. Rach side was consetuently
uag^-r to prove h> achievement that
ts situation had mad. it invincible, since
t was found that verbal arguments invariably
resulted in a draw.
When the attacks by sea against both
Torts began, Thursday night, the phogram

who had been repulsing each other
worked together against a common fo?.
l"he element of rivalry thus taken away,
Jome of the zest disappeared, but the loss
acs merely in comparison, since the exer;ises
were ?xcit!ng in themselves, and kept
:he m<n inte,ns?lv Interested, though in a
iifferent way.
Much of the progress made by the supports?the
men used for outpost duty?was
due to the painstak:ng efforts of the accomplished
regular officers detached by the
War Department for assistance and instruction.
These young men have all dls
tinguished themselves by their aptitude In
their chosen profession, and are selected by
the government for higher studies in the
military art. Those with the companies at
Fort Washington were Lieut. K. Iiail Ru|
bottom, Dth Cavalry; Second Lieut. Matthew
C. Hristol, l3h Cavalry; Second Lieut.
John T. Donnelly, 13:h Cavalry, and Second
Lieut.Fay W. Brabson. 12th Infantry.
Those at Fort Hunt were Lieut. Fugua,

l.ieut. Merchant of the lStli Cavalry, and
Lie-:t. Dawson of the -titii Infantry.
Factor in Success.
At Fort Washington the nncca?in^ vigilance
anvl untiring energy of Maj. Stevens,
whose mind holds n card catalogue of the
details of the stronghold, was a great factor,
it is conceded, in tlis success of the
encampment. The major was never too

Campaign Virtually Over.
At a late hour a special train on the
narrow-gauge railway carried the officers
of the supports back to thoir outlying
camp, and when the last light died
out the encampment of the 2d Regiment
of the District of Columbia at Fort
Washington was virtually over.
Today the regulars struck their tents
and moved back to barracks, and tomorrow
morning, after the District men
pack up their canvas, no trace of the
camps will remain.
Tonight Capt. Emil G. Shafer ::ent a
telegram to Gen. Harries at Harper's
Ferry, asking that musicians be sent, if
possible, to the dock of the steamer Jane
Moseley, to head the regiment as it
marches from the river front to the
armory. Gen. Harries will send either
the band or the drum corps. It is expected,
if the troops from Camp Ordway
reat^h thr* fitv !nnr?- Pnniio'h ho'nro
troops from tho forts to give the musicians
time to reach the dock.
In the estimation of the soldiery?and
others?it has been a deprivation not to
have had a band here, especially since it
had been counted on by the people at the
post. This especially to the colonel's
cook, who said she "could jes' keep a-steppin-'
to the music' while she was working.
The troops will probably reach Washington
by 10 o'clock, possibly earlier, If present
plans meet with no obstacle.
At Kort Hunt tonight the regular officers
entertained the militia officers at a
smoker, while the liistr'ct enlisted men
were the guests of the artillery men. The
cheers of the men could bo heard across
the river.

Special Cablegram to The Star.
GLASGOW, July 27.?From the nort'i of
England comes a story of Hie amazing
credulity of the sterner, as well as the
fairer s?x?a story which has actually
caused amawmrnt in j4r?ntis?rwi it
was not regarded as possible that the north
of Kngland people con'.d be so ignorant in
regard to Scottish affairs.
According to the accounts received here
Creorge Mosely, a young man of pleasing
appearance, was placed under arrest on the
charge of obtaining money under fa se
pretenses. Kven the preliminary examination
was of such a character that his own
solicitor described him as "a liar of great
fertility and pleluresqueness."
Robert Groves, a bird dealer nf tnennt.
said Mosely told him that ha could make
him a "star" member of a Scottish ciub
and high lieutenant of Scotland. Mosely
described himself as the hero of many prize
lights, and even went so far as to appoint
Groves as his trainer. Acting on these
representations Groves handed his business
over to Mosely and also gave him considerable
The ceremony of the election to the c ub
was gone through in secret and all of the
supposed rites were observed, except that of
burning or branding the buiy, this being
having h soar cn liis fate which could be
counted as a burn.
(iroves provided Mosely with the best of
foods while lie was training for a forthcoming
prize tight and also boxed with
him daily to keep him in training. The
fact that he persisted in eating so much
in the way of spring lamb and new ik>tatocs
and drinking Hie finest of wines and
the oldest of ales, while it did not arouse
the suspicion of the poor dupe, did arouse
the suspicion of some of the neighbors who
knew enough about the training of prize
lighters to know that this was hardly the
best way to go about it. Kven then Mosely
attempted to b'uff and fight the matter to
a finish, but the notoriety aroused in con
sequence resulted in his ultimate undying.
Was No Laggard in Love.
Emily Groves, the sister of Robert I
Groves, said that Jlosely made the most
violent love to hor and told her that he
liad already won 132 rights arid that lie
was matched to tight Gunner Moir.
"I really do like brave men," she said,
"and I thought that he must be very
brave to win so many fights. And I knew
that brave men are honest and truthful,
and could not see how one so brave could
tell me a falsehood. 1 never thought of
calling Into question the truth of his
statements for this reason."
Mosely told the girl that he would receive
$40,000 in connection with his fight
with Gunner Moir, and that of this $15,

OOO would go to her brother for playing
the part of trainer. Moir when inter- '
viewed declared that lie had never heard
of Mosely. j
Nor was this all. He declared that he
was writing a play, "A Woman's Sin."
The play purported to be a dramatization
of an alleged novel written by Sir Walter
Scott, also entitled "A Woman's Sin."
Mosely informed her that they were to
bo married with the royalties from this
particular dramatization. Miss Grove sa!d
that she never thought to investigate and .
find out whether Sir Walter Scott eyer 1
did write tffe novel, because she had abso- 1
lute confidence in the man. However, as a
mere matter of detail and common sense, I
slie did Insist on having some money be- |
fore the marriage, and except for the
money furnished by her brother it did
seem ns though Mosely was without funds.
Mnsely's solicitors declared 'hat this was
all done to win the woman's favor, but
the magistrate finally sentenced the "priza
fighter" and "playwright" to three months
