'HBlta'OlAND.. A Visit la Tlmt Voiy hlugultir Island In Hi North N. 1 , Hamburg, August 25, 1894. to the Editor of the JouwMb and Cocmkiu Inasmuch as Heligoland la but fill- . tie wrap of land In the North Seai in tact not moi-o than onc-hojc, or1 onh j iunre mllo in area, no I will on this occasion write you but a very short ' letter to describe this very peculiar and ! jnluue ielet. Wo left Norderney at 8 a, m. In the dne German' steamer "Cobra," the largest by far of nil the steamers ply- Ing to Heligoland and the Frisian Is ' lands, , We steamed very rapidly away ,' from "fair Norderney," and a pretty '.-alght it was, too, to view this little Is' land sink beneath the horizon, but at ; lust after steering towards all points of the compass, Jn and out among the nhonls where the sea broke in great breakers, wo lost sight of the shore, which was crowded with people and alive with children carrying flags on poles nhd building sand forts. In my letter from Norderney I omit? . ted to mention that at Hardeney chll- dren by thousands spend much of their ' time building sand forts on the beach (and' flying flags therefrom) to oppose the incoming tide, and many of these, sand forts are really of superior con struction with their outlying penta- . gons and deep moats. In many cases these little forts appear as models of real forts, and seem as if constructed by clever artillery officers. Jt is not at all strange that German children should build forts of sand, for tbelr ' environment is always one of war, and the very thought of war, and of- sol- . tilers and of bright uniforms, has im- ' bued German- youth with a love of glory ever since those four thousand Giant Grenadiers of Frederick Wll helm I. drilled with such precision, pq the parade ground of the Old Schloss nt Potsdam and won the admiration of' all Europe. No doubt the Impression produced by his father's tall Grenai dicrs tended to develop In Frederick II', that Intense love for a soldier's life which eventually placed him In such a" conspicuous position in the history of Europe. Has the world ever known a braver, or greater general than Frederr Ick the Great? Julius Caesar, Atilla, Napoleon, Wel lington, can they transcend the quali ties of Frederick, the Great? I think of him, as Thomas Carlyle did, as the greatest military genius that history has ever revealed to us. i- Well,:! find lam digressing, -sqlet-ns hurry along towards Helgoland. We stood right -out into the open sea; no land was visible in any quarter and ; we "steamed along in fine style: "His : paths are in the great wat(srn i.T?ulj5 L: : we Were on ' "the great flndwrderHea:'' ' The aif waB deliclously cool and invig orating, and the sensation produced by the heaving.-billows was very agreea ble as we ntiw and then sighted and ran past those heavy red-sailed Ger man luggers, Whose occupants pass their whole lives onthis German ocean, and.whose particular employr ment s' ffsblng, adepts, too, at their professipnjfo their,, ancestors for cen turies have' fished these same waters in these very same unique style of boats, whose red sails gletim afar in the shining "sun-light. '"" v ' . These fishers are the Frisian fisher folk, a peculiar race, very Jike, no doubt, to their remote forefathers, who were.' famous fishermen and , skilled ' boa,t, builders as long ago ..as. the days wheyt Caesar wrote his "Gaj.iC.JiYars.'J Wo Sighted many steamship great le viirthaps of the deep, on' their passage to and from distant ports, and it de lighted me to see the great squar6 sailed merchantmen, with all their can vas set, jogging along with a gentle! four or five knot breeze, nearing their home ports, Hamburg or Bremen, of . bound up through the Cattegat into the Baltic Sea, deeply laden with their freight from. .over the seas. In this same manner ,1 used to behold similar ships, -with flags flying, coming proud ly into their destination in tropic seas. What Ipreitier sight . can there be than a fine sailing ship, with all her Canvas set, "running down the trades,' or standing boldly Into her desired ha ven At one p. m..we saw right ahead of us' an-Object "which looked like the great back -of a whale; the captain told us this was , Heligoland bearing northwest, three leagues distant. We smiled at such a yarn, taking his re mark decidedly "culn grano sails," but as the whole seemed incapable of changing "its position we were at last forced to believe our smileless, stolid captain, and in a short space of time we cast anchor In a little bay In the most singular island in the world; the same was Heligoland. ' Heligoland (Holy-Land) Is gradually being devoured by the waves of the Nqrth Sea, and in a few years will cease to exist, or rather will only sur-, vive as a shifting shoal pf sand, the sport of-wind and wave. This remarkable island rises frottf the sea to a perpendicular height of two hundred feet on three sides, form 1ng a long narrow triangle, Which Is called the "Oberland." On the south east Side there is merely a low, flat sand-bank called the "Unterland." These names the tourist will discover are quite significant . ; f. ; , v . : There are about fifteen hundred in habitants on the islet; they are Fri sian in dialect, habits, and costumes. Heligoland v formerly belonged to Schleswig,, but . in, 1810 it was taken possession of by "the English, "who Jield thiB little speck of earth's surface with f garrison till 1892, when they ex changed" it with the Germans for aj large tract of 5 valuable territory in jentral Africa. Heligoland was dur- '.as the earlx years of the present iaen :ury , a famous resort of German smugglers, especially durin$t!ie Alock iide ofthfc'pwts'ln l812.-h,Byp yrhf yuage of ihe natives,. was lha ofToferj . manyr 'arid - Oernutn money asfeurt -fent;,---''i'"-' -"" J , Very many visitors. eome-t He'libi , - vandv and especially durin4h hfatfci . Hag 8easonr"7ifnetJtfiy Aak 2Xfxm The bathing semen la a great source of profit; another source of gain is the lubMter .fishery, which Is carried on here very extensively; large quantities of these, dellolous Crustacea are sent from hure to all parts of Germany Boon after coming to anchor we went ashore in a small shallop, and were much Interested in this "funny" place, The whole "Unterland" swarmed with tourists, walking, bathing and enjoy ing themselves in all possible ways. Decorum and propriety reigned here, (or Helgoland, small as it Is, is as wel policed as the great city of Berlin, and this latter Is by far the best governed city In the world. Fishermen were go ing hither and thither in their queer garb, their squat wives and children shaped like the very fishes their hus bands and fathers catch, were to be seen literally everywhere, and It seemed to us as if we had of a sudden entered another planet. Such boats, so qucerly constructed, with such pecu liar paddles and great lee-boards, and at the same time such fine sea boats ineir singular appearance made me actually laugh aloud. I used to think the typical Nantucket fisherman a sin gular sort of creature; short, corpulent and podgy shaped, and having the ap pearance of a perfect porgie or pump kin-seed fish out of his watery element, but they are lords of creation, rather Carlyle's "daudalcal" dudes when brough Into comparison with these men fish or fishermen of Heligoland. A few narrow streets run through the "Un terland" and probably a thousand peo ple live here, and doubtless think "there is no place like home," and they love their homes, and when the storms howl around their houses they are per fectly content, and nothing could In duce them to exchange places with city folks over the water. Their houses are patterns of neat ness with their prettily painted doors and window frames, with white cur tains at the windows, while geraniums and other bright flowers are exposed to view on the window sills. Their little front yards filled with those old-fashioned flowers with which we were fa miliar in our boyhood days, such as hollyhocks, rockets, tiger lillles, sweet- peas and prince's feathers, gave a very pretty and home-like effect. To reach the "Oberland" one must ascend one hundred and ninety wooden steeps, an easy flight, where he finds a plateau planted with potatoes, through which runs "Kartoffel Allee" (Potato lane.) Some four or five hundred sheep and goats are pastured on the "Oberland," and quite a respectable sized town it is, taking all things into consideration. rne views from "Sathurn or South-Horn" at sunrise and at sun set is something which one will re member a whole lifetime. There is a fine light-houBe here which deserves a visit, and a climb to its lantern amply repays the attempt. A couple of days spent at the very comfortable "Hotel Stadt Wein' in the "Oberland" Is a delightful ex. perionce, and if one has the leisure it is well worth while to come over from the continent to enjoy It here. The "Oberland" being the highest part of the Island, is the pleasantest and at the same time the healthiest part to spend one's time in. jfca American young lady ' four montHs since came from Dresden with her fiancee to this island, and "In this remote and hoarse resounding place, "Which billows wash and craggy cliffs embrace," were married in the little Lutheran church, and here apart . from the world they spent their honeymoon, and lo! what a delightful spot they chose to spend that happy occasion. A pleasant trip is often taken around the Island; a small boat for a moderate amount takes a, party of five persons a distance of three miles, which entirely circumnavigates the whole island, tru ly a miniature microcosm and worthy of a minute description by some mod ern Dean Swift. Many of its singular rock-- are named with fanciful names, such as Nun, Pastor, Monk, &c, and occasionally in summer these rocks and grottoes are brilliantly illumina ted, when boats are let, in. which visi tors are rowed a little distance out In the sea to view the beautiful scene, Some forty to sixty miles northeast of Heligoland are the Frisian Islands of "Sylt," Wyk and Fohr, favorite bathing places to which thousands re sort In summer;- very singular islands and very singular names. Sylt is forty square miles In area and twenty-three miles long and very narrow. , Sylt Is the largest German island in the North Sea. ; f But our time will not allow us to lin ger (n this wonderland more than two days, so we will at last bid adieu to its boats and Its fishermen and its little scrap of rock and. earth, When the "Cobra" again sailed we took passage for Hamburg, crossing first to Cuxha- ven, a pretty little town on the main land with five thousand Inhabitants, seventy-five miles from "Hamburg by railroad. Here is a" pretty 'chateau built nearly six hundred years ago: it is one of the oldest secular structures in northern Germany. Before reach ing Cuxhaven we passed the little isle of Ncuwercke With its famous light house, originally erected as far back as the year 1290 as a castle for protection against pirates. This is a very well known light-house, and many a mari ner on the North Sea nightly looks anxiously for its welcome gleam over the waters. At Cuxhaven the great steamers of the Hamburg-American line) land their passengers, whence, they are conveyed by special train to Hamburg;., We did not land at Cuxhaven. hav ing stopped there a year since on our way from New York to Hamburg. We remained on board the -''Cobra" and steamed one hundred miles right up we sreai. eiioe river, ana a right Pleas ant sail it was,; too, passing ships of all sizes and steamers without number, while the "bright meadow banks were verdant with late rains, and sto in u seemed as if we were" steamfntr mnirfiv along right through beautiful, quiet minis, um ai lasi we came safelv to our dock In the heart of busy Ham- ourg, wmcn in point of shipolna- and commercial -greatness -vies -with Lon don and Liverpool.

Lyon, the auditor at tbe postofflce. There were a number of candidates tor the position, and a number of ballots were taken before any result was reached. The session was held In the alder manic chamber and all the doors were securely locked In order to prevent the doings of the session from becoming public property. It was veritable "star chamber" session. The members of the committee present Were Alder men Gallagher and Hiller, and Council men Parish and Klenke, representing the city, Selectmen Pohlman and Stahl representing the town, and ;' Messrs. Thompson and Moran representing the board of education. These gentlemen wrestled with the all important discus sion from 3 to 5 o'clock, and when the final adjournment was taken for the day all the Information that the mem bers would give out was that. Mr. Lyon had been elected. The books of the tax collector have not been audited for fifteen years, and consequently the work will prove one of unusual magnitude. The work of the committee Was to decide upon an ac countant who should be secured to do the work and to ascertain the price to be charged for such service. It Is said that nearly every member of the com mittee had a certain one whom he would like to have see secure the plum, but whether such was the case or not it is an acknowledged fact that the mem bers., of the committee were compelled to resort to a large number of ballots before they could decide upon Mr. Lyon. The appropriation for the work is $1,500. It was also decided that Mr. Lyon should be authorized to secure assist ants to help with the work, and after a lengthy discussion the .committee de cided to allow him to select tho men who shall assist him in the work under the personal supervision of a sub-committee of the Joint committse. This sub-committee is composed of Alder man Gallagher.Seleotman Pohlman and Mr. Thompson. This morning at 10 o'clock this committee will hold a con ference with Mr. Lyon in the city hall, when the corps of assistants Will be de cided upon. The work of auditing the books of the tax collector's office will be commenced immediately, and It la. expected will continue for several months. It will probably require this length of time to do the work, owing to the fact that the books have not been audited since 1879, and during that interval there have been numerous abatements of taxes made by the' tax commlsstonef-s and court of common council, of which the tax collector has ho knowledge. It Is expected that the brunt of the ex pense of auditing the books of the tax collector will fall on the city, owing to tne fact that the city taxes exceed these of the town and school districts. The total cost of the auditing w)H be divided proportionately among the three. Bain Will Save Oops. ' ". Valparaiso, Ind., Sept, 6.

New York, Sept. fv-At on yesterday the stock market continued entirely pro fessional In Its character with this dif ference, hoever, that to-day operators were Inclined to be bearish, whereas on yesterday the bullish sentiment was In the ascendant At the start certain railway Issues ran off to per cent., while Sugar, Western Union, Lake Shore and Lead advanced as much. The early loss was soon recovered, however, notwithstanding foreign and local sell ing to realise profits. The Improvement was based partly on the favorable rail way earnings for the fourth week and month of August, and the statement by Pennsylvania railroad officials that west bound traftio was picking up at a satisfactory rate. Subsequently the market drifted Into dullness, and as the afternoon wore along small operators, who had pur chased yesterday en the theory that the Upward movement In Western Union and other bull favorites would be pur chased, began to sell. This resulted In a general decline of to 2 per cent., Sugar leading, with sales down to 104. Burlington and Qulucy, St. Paul, Rock Island, Western Union, Reading, Louis ville and NashvflU and Northern Pa cific lost hi to m" er cent. In the last hour there was a frac tional rally, but' owing to a renewed selling movement In American Sugar, which carried (hat stock down to the lowest point of the day, the recovery In the general list was lost. The market In consequence closed barely steady. Net changes show losses of H to IVi per cent., Sugar leading.
