ARK. A BIG THREE. Simpson, Watson and Otis Will Not Work With Alliance Congressmen. BREEZY MEETING. AIIIalire Conitreismen Dertda to Work With I lie Democrat* of the House, fanning .l<*rry to Withdraw. • New York, Jan. 24.—A Wash ington special says: Jerry Simpson, supported by two other Alliance con gressmen, Watson, of Georgia, and Otis, of Kansas, has split with the other Alliance members of the house, and it is said the difficulty is too serious to be healed. ' The trouble came to head at a ' meeting of the Alliance congress jjnen held in, tjiis. -1.a- . week, and "its result was develoj>ed by the refusal of Messrs. Simpson, Waters and Otis to attend another meeting of the Alliance members last night. At the Tneeting last week there was a long and bitter discussion over the proposition that the Alli ance men in congress should agree to oast, lot with the Democratic party. The proposition was vigor ously opposed by Simpson, Watson and Otis. They contended that the Alliance had progressed favorably, without the aid of either the two great political parties, and advocated the third party scheme. Several times during the evening an exchange of blows wras narrowly averted, and after it had been de cided that the Alliance congressmen should work with the Democratic party in the house, Simpson, Wat son and Otis protesting, the meeting adjourned until the next night. The report of the split is con firmed by Messrs. Simpson, Watson and Otis. They will not be gov erned in the future by the actions of their Alliance men. Watson, who was the Alliance candidate for speaker of the house, will probably be the leader^of the third party men. SMALL POX SPREADING. Chim-M- Ilnpidly Falling; Victims to the Malady on Alltel Inland. San Francisco, Jan. 29.—Small pox is spreading rapidly among 500 C'hine«e quarantined on Angel Island. They landed from the steamer “Uio Janeiro,” January 20, when there were two csises on hoard. Now there are eleven well defined cases of confluent small pox at Lazarett. The Chinese fully expect that every man on the island will lie taken with the disease, and they sit around awaiting their turn. Six custom house officers are in cluded among the eleven whites on the island and quarantine officers will not allow them to leave. Within sight of the quarantine station are the government barracks. Col. Shatter has established a dead line, beyond which no quarantined person may stray, and a guard pa trols the line. VALUABLE SILVER FIND. A ItiglliiKh I pon the Town of Creede, Col orado. Creede, Col., Jan. 29.—Much excitement has been caused here by the finding in the “Jack Pot” claim of ore bearing 220 ounces of silver to the ton. There is a great rush for the location. The population of Creede two weeks ago was 2000. To-day it is 3500, and two trains a day are swelling the number. There are a few houses in the place and seventy five cents is the price charged to se cure a place on a barroom floor to sleep and furnish your blankets. Side-tracks are filled with Pullman sleepers and the struggle for lierths is a daily occurrence. Lumber is twenty-two cents a foot. It is expected that the population of the town will reach 15,000 by May 1. Do Not Knke off the Lawiih. “Most people,” says an artistic gardener, “rake off the leaves from their lawns, and then to protect them smear them over with some vile compost.

Ooulbum’s biography of the ate Dean of Chicester is pul dished o-day by Mr. Murray in tvyo vol- - mica. Dean Hurgon was an sawom dished retailer of anecdote*, and several are given in thea* veiumoa. j toe of them, described as. a royal *on mot, appears in an early letter ■ of the dean’s, dated 1840. “A gen tleman,” he says, “on whom 1 called the other day told me that in the course of an interview he had had with the Duke of Sussex, Allen the Quaker waited upon his royal high ness in order to remind him of his promise to present a petition against apital punishment. The duke did not seem quite to like the job, and observed that Scripture has declared •Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed.’ ‘Please your royal highness,’ replied the Quaker, ‘when Cain killed Abel, he was not hung for it.’ ‘That’s true,’ rejoined the duke, ‘but re member, Allen, there were not twelve men in the world then to make a jury.’ This was not had for a royal duke,” said my friend, “but 1 think it good to come from anybody.”—London News. THE VANDERBILT MILLIONS. A LttUc Urm Hearty Made a HIk Rum pun Over 111* Will. Commodore Vanderbilt spent the last days of his life in a great big ;;hi hoaS?'lhat stood t« -that aristo cratic portion of Now York city, Washington Square, and he had married for a second wife a sweet young woman of the South. He was anxious to write a will over which there could he no disagreeing when he should have passed away. When the will was completed it was submitted to several brilliant and high-priced legal lights, among whom was William M. Evarts, and they all, for fees of $10,000, or thereabouts, pronounced the docu ment unimpugnable. But th8 will remained a subject of uneasiness to the commodore, and one day he was told of a young lawyer who had been in the office of the Register of Wills for some years and who was something of an expert in the matter of wills. “Send him a copy of mine and a small fee!” It was done. And the young man in going over the paper found a flaw, and rej>orted it. The discovery was referred to the legal lights before mentioned, and they all agreed that the point was well taken. The breach washealpd, and there was no legal controversy over the Vanderbilt millions.— Washington Post. THE LAWYER’S GHOST. A lawyer and a bishop (perhaps the bishop should come first) were talking, and this was the manner of their talk: “I have become thoroughly con vinced,” said the lawyer, “of the existence of nocturnal apparitions, for I have seen one ! ’ ’ “Dear me!” exclaimed the bishop. “I am very curious. Helato the story.” “1 will, my lord, I will,” said the lawyer. “It was between the hours of 11 and 12. I had gone to bed, and was just falling into my first comfortable 1 sleep, when I was wakened by a strange creaking noise. It sounded as if some one was walking up stairs! The steps sounded nearer and nearer, slower and slower; solemn and measured they were, and presently they halted at my door. 1 drew the sheet over my head and lay there trembling, not daring to move “Something,” continued the law yer, “entered my room and threw the sheet over my face. I felt rather than saw a faint yellow glim mering light. I could not move at first, but I presently managed to gain a little courage. I drew the sheet cautiously down from my face and—looked!” “ Well! ” cried the bishop, exeited *y “In the center of the room,” sftid the lawyer, slowly, “stood a tall old man. He seemed gaunt and worn with ago or h mger, and his long gray beard hung half way down his breast. He was dressed in a queer loose cloak with a cape, and he wore a broad leather band about his waist. In one hand he held a peculiarly shaped lantern, from which flowed the yellow light, milking strange ghostly shadows on the wall behind him. In the other hand he held a staff, the look of which was un pleasant. He stood still in the middle of the floor, looking at me. Presently I said, ‘Whence art thout What dost thou require P ” “And what did ho say?” cried the bishop, fixing his eyes upon the odd expression of the lawyer’s face. “He said,” replied the lawyer, speaking in a hoarse whisper—“he said: ‘I beg yer pardon, sur. I’m the watchman of the street, sur; an’ I thought ’twould be best for me, sur, to come up an’ tell yer that yer front door stood open ! If ye do be lavin’ it that way, sur, it’s bad luck ye’ll have before the rnonrn’!’ ”— Harper’s Young People. A Chapter on Oyrtter*. “Oysters are fatter this year than I ever saw them before,” said a restaurant oyster opener. “I don’t know why, but usually the fatter an oyster is tho poorer the Havor. This is because the fat oyster has gener ally been out of the water too long and has been fed. That is not wholly the reason this jear. They are fat ter, any how. “An oyster is better on the half shell, about twenty-four to forty eight hours after he is out of salt water. Eaten before that time they are apt to give cramps. Yes, the male oyster is the.best, but we don’t come across a male more than an average of once in fifty times.”—New York Herald, In Training.

St. Louts, Jan. 29.—Additional advices from the Mexican border confirm the report that Garza has crossed into Mexico with from 4000 to 5000 v ell armed and mounted Mexicans. He has another band in the Santa Rosa Mountain country of 1500 to 1800 men, well armed and mounted under com mand of Gen. Francisco Sales, and it is a well known fact among all Mexicans, who try to find out any thing about the trouble, that Garza will have at least two-thirds of the entire Mexican population I on his side when the proper time I comes to show up, which will lie 1 immediately after -the- first fight, I which will take place not later than the 1st of February. —— Eighty-five Mexicans in one band well equipped for war were seen heading for the Rio Grande yester day to join Garza. This is near So nora, Sutton county, Texas. There is great excitement all along the upjier part of the bonier, not only among Mexicans, but among Americans as well. Bands of revolutionists meet at Sonora, Tex., daily and organize. They are not molested by the officers of the law and are permitted to proceed on their way to Mexican territory.

Detroit is a lovely city and every body knows it. The love of it is bred in the bone, and never gets out of the flesh.

The good man looked at him is pained surprise. “My child,” he said, very gently and kindly, “why don’t you rise with the others?” “Detroit’s good enough for me, that’s why,” sang out the youngster, and the solemnity of the occasion was knocked to pieces.—Detroit Free Press.

In earlier ages scholars and scien tists were obliged to communicate their ideas in Latin, because there was no other language in which ideas could be ex pressed exactly and be the common property of all Eu rope. During the whole of the last century the French language en ! joyed this consideration and was the language of educated men, while Latin almost ceased to be the vehi cle of modern thought. It is now an open question wheth er Latin or German or English should not be employed freely in the great scientific associations of Eu rope, or whether all three should not be allowed at the discretion of the writers of individual papers. - If anyone of these languages should take the precedence to-day it would be the English, which is now more commonly spoken by foreigners as a universal language than . any other. It is found that it is capable of such scientific exactness as is de manded in intricate details, and that one who knows his English well is more sure of commanding a hearing from the majority in an assemblage of different nationalities than if fie used German or French. The indi cations are that English is to be the future scientific language of the world—Boston Herald. CASH VERSUS SENTIMENT. Any Hog Worth «7a tan B« tionght for • to Sow-. A stout old mar. in a gray ulster hailed a Fourth avenue car St Worth street the other day. One hand was occupied with a rather impetuous bull-clog on a chain and the other waved a baggy umbrella. When the ear stopped the man hauled the bull-dog up to the rear platform and said to the conductor: “Take a dorg on your ear?” “No.” “Me and John William has got to get up town.” “Can’t help it; walkin’s good.’ “Let me ride on the platform and hitch John William onto the brake. " The conductor agreed to this, and John William trotted placidly along up the Bowery without mishap, be yond upsetting two newsboys. Somehow nobody wanted to get off the car on John William’s side, and people on the crossing waiting for the car to pass kindly gave John William all the room he wanted. At Seventeeth street, however, there was a crosstown car in waiting, and the driver, intent on the hairbreadth escajie of the rear platform which a crosstown driver loves to make, wwdmned without John William. who was pattaring calmly along oe side the step. “Hey, hey, hold on,” called the old man on the platform, excitedly. But it was too late; there wasn’t room between the crosstown horse and the platform of the Fourth avenue car for even the alert John William to pass, and it seemed as if the dog must be inevitably crushed. John William, however, regarded it otherwise. He seemed to ' know that his only chance lay in breaking the chain. So by a quick bound to the farthest side of the crosstown horse he brought the whole strain upon the chain across the horse's chest, and snapping his bonds like a string he trotted calmly rip Fourth avenue after his master. “Well, now, ain’t he a dog?” ejaculated the conductor admiringly. “There ain’t his beat in New York,” responded his owner, proud ly. “Of course, there’s other dogs here and there,” he added as a great concession, “but they simply ain’t in it with John William. 1 wouldn’t take $75 cash for that dog.” “Reckon he’s worth it,” said the conductor. There was another man on the platform. He looked John William over critically in silence, and two blocks further on said: “I’ll give you $10 for your dog.” “Mean it?” asked John William’s owner, anxiously. “Certainly.” “Cash; no bluff.” “Of course.” “Gosh! He’s your dog.”—New York Tribune. The Yeittibule Car in Safe. The improvement in palace and 1 drawing room cars in the last two or ! three years has been very great, as I ! learned in talking with a railroad man who is here from the West to buy cars. “The most notable feature in their improvement,” said he, “is their greater strength and safety. It is next to impossible for passengers to be hurt in one of the modern ves tibule trains, no matter what acci* dent may happen, short of rolling down an embankment, being pitched ■ off a bridge or into water. The ■ vestibule ends of cars are so strong that in an accident I went through the other day, where a train running j _i__ _:i..i i.. l.. i . i ' JIVMAtJ 111 VJ II1IIVO Will* IIVUl 'UtOlIVU into a freight train on a side track, not a passenger was even scratched There was a big fat man crossing from one car into another, who was in the middle of the vestibule when the train struck, and he was the least shaken up of any one.

MURDERED BY THE VILLAINS Thv Body Thrown Through the Ire in the , River and the Murderer* Kwnpe Without I-enving a Clew. j , . Detroit, Mich., Jan. 29.—Rosa Barowitch, a pretty 13-year-oUl girl, left home last Friday evening, J dressed only in a light calico gown, and with no hat. Since then her parents have seen nothing of her, and a vigorous search of the police failed to reveal her whereabouts. A young friend of the girl tells a strange story that adds much to the mystery surrounding the affair, j She says on the night that Rosa left J home she saw the missing girl enter a house ucar v. with two young Later the same night j the three were seen to j take a carriage and drive toward the , river. In the search of the house, which had lKen rented and partly fur nished by two young men for two weeks, were found shreds of the girl’s dress. On the floor was found several clots of blood. The young men have not returned to their quarters since last Friday, and a search of the city fails to re veal their presence here. It is te lieved that they decoyed the girl into their quarters, maltreated and murdered her, and then threw the body through the ice in the rivor. The police are tending every energy to unravel the mystery, but have met with small success thus far. DEMOCRATIC OPINION. Wliat Our Dt inocrallc Cotemporurie* are (Jiving Their Header*.
