PERSIA IN A BAD WAY.
5The Shah Now Under the Control of h
Priestly Oligarchy.
The internal affairs of Persia seem to
be proceeding steadily from bad to
Worse. A correspondent of the London
Times, who declares that he has the
highest authority for his statements,
writes: The priestly caste, which has
always enjoyed greater authority in
Persia than in Mussulman countries of
the Sunni persuasion, although hum
bled by the present ruling dynasty,
has exploited to the utmost the prevail-
Ling discontent for the furtherance of
its own enas anu me revival ux ils uwu
prestige. Mahdist doctrines i. e., the
belief in the speedy advent to the
twelfth Imam, who is to sweep the un
believers off the face of the earth have
always had a strong hold upon Shiite
Mohammedans. During the last Muhar
rem festivals the priesthood announced
in many mosques that a mahdi and
savior unto Persia had risen at Samara,
near Bagdad, in the person of Mollah
Hajji Mirza Hassan Shirazi, and that
he was predestined to rule over the
land. This ominous announcement was
rendered still more significant by the
omission of the khutbeh, the prayer for
the shah, which throughout Islam is the
most ancient and sacred privilege of
royalty. These incidents acquire all the
more gravity that the shah feels him
self helpless to cope "with the impend
ing crisis. Treachery is rampant with
in the palace itself, and the shah's third
son, Prince Naib-es-Sultaneh, who is at
the same time minister of war, is known
to be in secret sympathy "with the mal
content leaders. It is no exaggeration
to say that the shah rules in little more
than name, and, as it were, on suffer
ance. The power, both, in the capital
and the provinces, almost throughout
his empire, has passed out of his hands
into those of the priestly oligarchy,
who are the masters of the situation.
The grand vizier himself Emin-cs-Sul-
tan has been compelled to enter into
secret negotiations with the most, influ
ential of these holy agitators, Mollan
Mirza Hassan Ashtiany, in the hope,
it is alleged, of persuading him
that the deposition of the shah would
involve the occupation and possible par
tition of the last great shah kingdom
by the very Europeans whose presence
is so loathful to every right-thinking
Mussulman."
DANGER OF FOOTBALL.
Muscular and Nervous Stamina Needed In
the Game, and Plenty of Each.
Few except those who have been
through the experience are aware what
exertion and strain and exhaustion a
hotly contested football match in
volves. It is all a great deal more than
appears on the surface, and the self-
control required in the midst of great
excitement adds to the nervous tension
besides the physical fatigue. This of
itself is enough, to try an average man,
but when to it is added the struggles,
the falls, the grapplings, the blows
(for, according to the Philadelphia
Times, there are blows once in awhile),
it requires stamina and real endurance
as well as strength to stand it. Be
cause the men on the opposite sides in
the field are not seen squaring off and
striking at each other in regular Sulli-
van-Corbett style, it does not follow
that there are not scientific ways m
which, in the tussels a man can be ma
terially weakened, or some particularly
acerressive member of it disabled. Let
any man in fair condition be suddenly
thrown to the ground and then have
one or two heavy men, or it may be
seven or eight, fall and throw their
weight on him. Possibly his hand may
be under one of their feet, or in the fall
one of their forearms may have choked
him across the neck. How much wind
and energy will an average man have
after one such, experience as that? And
yet it is a common football experience.
Many a man is hurt more in a football
fight than he cares to admit, and so he
makes light of it and plays on for the
sake of the college or team and from
self -pride. But games appear to be
growing rougher, and there are a great
many "accidents" and injuries, and,
taking all the teams in and around
Philadelphia, it would be astonishing if
the extent of the injuries received in
football were known. There is one doc
tor in Philadelphia who has on his list
thirty cases of injury at football, and
they are nearly all cases requiring sur
gical treatment.
Unhealthy ChurchoSt
The medical officer of health for the
city of London has started a movement
to compel all the churches of the city to
remove the dead that are buried
beneath their floors, and bury them at
Ilford. It is said that the condition of
many of these churches is frightfully
unhealthy, as they literally stand over
a mass of dead bodies in various stages
of decay, from which it is a wonder
that a pestilence has not resulted long
ago. The move has created great cons
ternation among the vestrymen of the
churches, as the process of exhumation
will be expensive as well as dangerous,
the average cost per church being esti
mated at ten thousand dollars. One
warden positively refused to allow any
interference with the dead, but when
the health officer had the flooring of his
pew taken up, and showed him what
lay beneath him every Sunday, he
auicklv chanced his mind. One man
tried to block the proceedings by
claiming the body of nis grandfather,
which was buried in one of the aisles
of the church some fifty years ago. He
was told that he could have it, of
course, all that was necessary was for
him to identify it.
An Even Thing.
On the steeple of an old Universalist
church in Bath, Me., there is a wooden
figure of an angel. It is not a remark
ably fine specimen of art, and has
always been somewhat laughed about,
especially because of its high-heeled
shoes. The Bath Enterprise recalls the
Story that a former pastor of the North
Congregational church once accosted a
devoted Universalist with the question:
"Mr. Raymond, did you ever see an
angel with high-heeled shoes on its
feet?" "Why, no," answered Mr. Ray
mond, "I can't say that I ever did; but
did you ever see one without them?" .
THE PANAMA SCANDAL.
How the Great Lottery Loan Was
Manipulated.
The Primary Cause or the Great Tumult
Which Is Now Convulsing- France
Prominent Olllclals Engaged
In Sharp Practice.
For two years prior to the lottery
loan, writes the Paris correspondent of
the London Economist, the public had
begun to manifest a reluctance to in
vest more money in the scheme. In
1S80 an issue of 500,000 bonds was made,
but only 458,802 were subscribed. In
1887 a fresh subscription of the same
number was opened, and only 258,887
were taken. The source had almost
dried up, and when money was required
again in 1888 some additional attraction
to investors was necessarj'.
M. de Lesseps then proposed to raise
a final great loan of 600,000,000 francs
with lottery prizes, that sum being suf
ficient to terminate the canal. But lot
tery loans require the authorization of
parliament, and a bill was presented to
the chamber March 1. M. de Lesseps
being, however, in immediate want of
money could not wait for the bill to
pass through the necessary stages be
fore becoming law, and March 14
offered for public subscription 350,000
bonds of 1,000 francs, without lottery
prizes, but which subscribers could ex
change for new bonds when the lottery
loan was authorized.
Of the 350,000 bonds offered only 112,
483 were taken up. The situation had
become desperate, and the undertaking
could only be saved by the passing of
the lottery loan bill. The bill was
passed successively by the chamber and
the senate, and became law on June 8.
The events that are to become the sub
ject of the parliamentary inquiry oc
curred between those dates of March 1
anc&Tune 8, 1SS8. Parliament had in
creased the amount of the loan from
C00,000,000 francs to 720,000,000, in order
that the additional 120,000,000 should be
invested in rentes in trust to insure pay
ment of the lottery prizes and the re
demption of the bonds in ninety-nine
years, the company being only liable
for the interest.
The loan was issued in 2,000,000 bonds
at 300 francs, but only 849,249 were sub
scribed, including those taken in ex
change, producing 305,000,000 francs, of
which 254,000,000 were for the company
and 51,000,000 for the trust. The costs
of the issue were enormous, and are set
down in the report drawn up by M.
Monchicourl, official liquidator of the
company in 1890, at 31,250,780 francs, or
over 10 per cent, of the amount sub
scribed. Of that sum 11,000,000 francs
is entered under the head of "syndi
cates," 7,301,131 francs for the press
and 10,900,832 francs'for commission on
the sale of the bonds. The remaining
two millions went for the printing of
the bonds and clerical work.
The charges brought by M. Delahaye
and some opposition journals against
the deputies may be and probably are
exaggerated, but they are so precise
and in some cases are accompanied
with details so circumstantial as tc
leave the impression that they are not
absolutely unfounded. Take the story
told of the vote on the loan bill in the
chamber. The committee consisted of
eleven members, of whom five were in
favor of the bill and five hostile. The
eleventh, it is said, pretended to be un
decided, but went to the company and
offered his vote for 200,000 francs. The
proposal was declined, and the deputy
then joined a bank for a bear operation
in Panama shares, with the intention of
giving his casting vote against the bill.
The company, however, reflected on
learning of the bear operation in Pan
ama shares, and sent to the chamber its
emissary, who called the deputy out of
the committee-room and offered him
100,000 francs, which was declined.
The deputy was sent for a second
time and obtained his terms, and the
majority for the bill was obtained. But
the deputy neglected to inform his con
federate, who continued to sell Panama
shares, and as they made a sharp re
bound on the decision of the committee
becoming known the banker was nearly
ruined. As he has since been quite
ruined and has absconded his name has
been given, but that of the deputy is
not yet revealed. The sudden death of
Baron de Reinach, who was the inter
mediary employed by the company, is
said to have occurred from a fit "brought
on by the discovery that the book con
taining copies of his letters had been
stolen after he had destroyed all other
documents of a nature to incriminate
him, as he was to have been made one
of the defendants in the prosecution.
He, however, employed a well-known
financial agent, who disappeared a few
months after committing large forgeries
to the prejudice of the dynamite com
pany, and who now boasts from his
hiding place that he has in his posses
sion the check-book from which the
deputies were paid.
A Case of Usury In London.
A London Shylock recently attached
the salary of a teacher for debt for bor
rowed money. The teacher gave the
following statement, which shows that
usury is not yet a lost art: "In August,
1880, 1 borrowed 5 (only) of a Mr.
Louis of Finsbury-pavement, who ad
vertised to lend money 'on note of
hand.' For this said 5 I signed a bill
at a month for 0. Not meeting it at
the end of the month, I paid him 1 for
renewal of the bill. This payment of 1
I repeated every month until January,
1889 twenty-eight months (with two
exceptions) when he increased the bill
to 8, but reduced the monthly interest
to 15s, which I paid regularly until De
cember, 1890. I then offered and begged
him to accept payment of the 8 by
equal monthly installments. He re
fused to do so, and I was advised to de
cline further payments. Subsequently
he pressed me for payment" offering to
accept a new bill for the amount above
and interest, which I was unable to
meet. Hence his attachment of my
salary." From the above statement it
would appear that the teacher in ques
tion received 5 only, paid 44, and is
still in debt for an amount, including
j interest and costs, of 18 lGs 2d.
AT THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Electrical Exhibits Are Nearly Beady for
Installation.
The electrical exhibit will cover in
round numbers 200,000 square feet on
the main floor and galleries of the elec
tricity building. The offices of the de
partment chief are in the gallery at the
south end and the two bays in the north
end of the gallery will be devoted to
restaurants. The remainder of the 360,
000 square feet of flooring in the build
ing will be taken up by aisles. The
work of installing exhibits will begin
immediately. Some exhibits are already
on the ground and others are arriving.
It is expected that during the week
fifty exhibitors will arrive to look after
the installation of their displays.
Of foreign countries France and Ger
many will give the greatest electrical
displays, France having been assigned
22,790 square feet on the main floor, and
Germany 19.3S2 square feet on the main
floor and galleries. France will occupy
the entire northwestern "bay," a part
of section P, just south of the bay, and
the greater part of section K, which lies
east of section P. Germany's exhibit
will occupy 13,384 square feet on the
ground floor east of the French display
and 5,998 feet in the galleries.
England will have 7,330 square feet
in the western part of the building ad
joining the French territory, and to
gether with Canada will occupy 5,993
feet in the galleries. Just north of the
center of the building an area of 4,471
square feet has been allotted to Thomas
A. Edison, and in the center of the
building is a circular plat 30 feet in di
ameter which will be occupied by the
Phcenix Glass company of New York.
The southern half of the ground floor
has been allotted to large electric firms
of this country, the Bell telephone com
pany, Brush company, Westinghouse
company, Detroit Electrical works, and
others, each having a large space as
signed to it. In the galleries will be
shown phonographs, scientific instru
ments and specialties. Here also will
be the exhibit of insulation and wire
people and small exhibits of foreign
nations.
FAST ENOUGH.
A Kussian's Plan for Crossing the At.
Ian tic In Twenty-Eight Hours.
It is said that a new maritime inven
tion, intended to revolutionize the pres
ent system of marine locomotion, is be
ing perfected by Lieut. Apostolow, of
the Russian navy. The other day a
private exposition was given of the in
genious models before Admiral Van der
Fleet, Baron Bistrom, Capt. Pereleschin
and other naval officers, in the directors'
room of the Russian company's estab
lishment at Odessa. Sufficient informa
tion has been collected by the London
Transcript to show that Lieut. Aposto
low's new ship has neither screw nor
paddle. There is, instead, a kind of
running electrical gear right round the
vessel's hull, under the water line, and
a revolving mechanism, which will pro
pel the ship from Liverpool to New
York in twenty-eight hours. This, how
ever, is but one part of the Russian's
scheme. Some unreasonably timid per
sons, Lieut. Apostolow imagines, might
object to the discomfort of being
swished through the Atlantic billows
at the rate of one hundred and thirty
knots an hour. To these he offers the
alternative of a submarine passage
"without rock, roll or vibration, and
with a good supply of oxygen and
hydrogen during the short voyage."
What the czar's officers think of the
Apostolow plans is not recorded. All
that is known is that the lieutenant has
quitted Odessa for Moscow and St.
Petersburg, where he intends to exhibit
his models before he embarks with
them for that valhalla of invention
the world's fair.
False Reports.
There is no ground for the published
report that visitors to the world's fair
are to be made the victims of exorbi
tant charges. Competition will be so
extensive and sharp as to prevent it.
One who climbs to the top of the expo
sition buildings and survej?s the territo
ry lying to the north, west and south of
Jackson park can easily believe this
statement. There, and indeed in all
parts of the city, the amount of build
ing which is going on is simply aston
ishing. Hundreds of structures to meet
world's fair demands arc being erected.
Some of the new hotels are large enough
to accommodate several thousand guests'
each. By the time the fair opens Chi
cago will have living accommodations
for not less than three hundred thou
sand strangers. Connected with the
exposition management is a bureau of
public comfort, through the agency of
which many thousands of visitors can
be directed to hotels, apartments,
boarding houses, furnished rooms, etc.,
where they will be comfortably cared,
for at moderate prices. Eating facili
ties both outside the fair grounds and
in the numerous restaurants in the ex
position buildings, will be so extensive
that no one need fear that he will not,
be able to get all he needs to eat, and
at reasonable charges.
A California Novelty.
One of California's novel exhibits at
the world's fair will be a, panoramic and
allegorical representation of the gey
sers. The mechanical model will be'
thirty-two feet long, twenty-eight feet
wide, and sixteen high. The allegorical
figure is by Rupert Schmid. From the
innermost recesses of the rocks, and
pushing them apart as he ascends from
the infernal regions, is a giant. The
figure is about two and one-half times
the size of a modern Hercules, and the
sculptor has made him as formidable,
powerful and terrible a looking being
as the mind could conjure. He is al-.
most in a sitting posture, one massive
leg and both arms are pushing the rocks
asunder, while the other leg carries the
weight of his body. His eyes, mouth,
low forehead and tufted beard are
worthy of a demon, and his hair is as
ragged as though he had been disturbed
in his slumbers. To convey an adequate
idea of his colossal proportions, three
life-size figures are to be introduced in
J the foreground peering timorously at
j the monster from behind bowlders.
Farmers' Cxiiial.
R. P. Marable returned from
Palomas, Tuesday morning. He
says that he found the crops look
ing well, the canal full of water,
the feed in the valley good, and
everything prosperous, and the
farmers happy. The heavy rains
did but very little damage to the
canal. The 30 acres of alfalfa
which he put in last spring he
found to be a beautiful field, just
ready to cut. He expected to find
it all dried out.

The South Gila Canal Company,
has decided to raise the height of
its dam from 30 to 50 feet, thereby
creating a great reservoir, which
will augment its. system of dis
tributing reservoirs that constitute
the first 14 miles of the canal. In
round numbers these cover 5,000
acres of land. This will give a
never failing supply of water to
ngatethe 18,000 acres of land
that makes up the river bottom.
The change made to do away with
five foot drop in the chain of
reservoirs, and that regulating the
velocity of the water to 2 A feet per
second, adds nearly 20,00 acres of
the best of land to the area that
can be irrigated.
