SURPRISES IN ZOUATE CLASS.
There were the most surprises in the
Zouave class, where three prizes were of
fered and four companies competed. There
was considerable disappointment that the
famous Chicago Zouaves did not get a
This command has justly been called the
first Zouave company in the country be
cause of its having won more than twenty
fust prizes during its lifetime and many
lesser ones. An analysis of itB score card
showed where it failed to come up to the
standard of the other companies In the
point of accuracy it was perfect, while its
mark for inspection was as high, if not
higher, than in the cases of its competitors

tlie other companies m the number of move
ments and in the quickness of their execu
tion, wiiiie its mark for work that was dis

than that received by the winners.
The Neeleys, of Memphis, were the win
ners of the fint prize, with the "Walsh's of
St. Louis second, and the Hales. of Kansas
City third There was considerable sur
prise that the "Walsh Zouaves, who have
been out of commission for the past two
years, should win iece-nd prize
DRILL MASTER'S GOOD "WORK.
But that they did so was the result of
the good work of theirexcellentdrill master
and Capt "William B Heyman, at one time
a member of the famous Busch Zouaves of
this city. Not a member of his company
had drilled before for two years until only
two weeks ago when Capt Heyman called
the men together and through the hardest
kind of work, brought them up to their
old point -or excellence and within three
points of taking the first prize.
Several of the companies left camp im
mediately after dress parade and the
others will take their departure on the
early trains to-morrow.

Alexandria County's New Sheriff
Starts the Reform Work.
JACKSON CITY DRY AS DUST
AllSnloon-keopers.Notiried That They

Sundays Hurry Cnndler Soured on
the "World Even Evangelist Mntcli-
ott Deprived of Ills Hull.
Scarcely a week has elapsed since
Sheriff Palmer, of Alexandria couuty,
took the oath of office and entered upon
his duties, and already his work or rcronn
has begun. Saturday evening, accom
panied by one of hia-deputies, ho vi&ited
the saloon keepers or Jackson City, and in
a terse, business-like wny, notified them
that when the first slanting rays of the
Sabbath sun gilded tlie old Potomac, every
saloon in the town must bo tightly closed.
He further announced that he expected
this condition of arralr6 to exist through
out the day, and even to keep up Sunday
Tho sheriff didn't act or look as though
he made these modest requests in a Joking
way, so the rum sellers thought it best to
obey. As a result an atmosphere of parch
ing dryness hovered over Mud street,
Jackson City's only thoroughfare, and the
regular contingent who lounge there on
Sundays were going around with disgust
and a choking sensation.
NOTHING BUT ICE WATER.
The front door to Harry Candler's place
was the only oue not locked and barred,
and tho reporter eutered the reEort made
famous by Eddie Desmond and others of
his ilk. Harry Candler and his brother Lee
were there, and several male and female
frequenters were upstairs. There was no
evidence of outside busiuess.bowever, and
as Harry provided the reporter with a
glass of ice water he politely regretted that
he could accommodate him with nothing
gone to hunt up a more salubrious clime.
Saturday night the victory of the safe burg
lars was celebrated in great shape, Des
mond taking partintheblow-outpreparatory
to saying good-bye to the fertile safes of
"Washington A great many visitors from
the city took part in the celebration, male
and female admirers of Candler and his ac
quitted friend, goiug over by tho hack full.
Perhaps Saturday night's entertainment
accounted for the sloppy conditiou of the
narry Candler himself has experienced a
change of heart toward all the world since
Marion Brandon , his colored cook, was
sentenced to ninety days in jail by Judge
Cole for contempt of court. His once
cheerful disposition seems soured, and he
no longer greets the reporters with a smile
and asks them in.
MISSIONARY MATCHETT SHUT OUT.
He has even gone back on Matchett's
mission, and when that enterprising evange
list knocked at the door yesterday fore
noon, expecting to be admitted in order to
deliverhisusualsermon, the only answerwas
an echo of his knock. He gazed around
and saw that the brilliantly painted sign
board that has for several weeks past her
alded Matchett's Mission to the world, was
missing. Then he walked sadly up the rail
road track to where the freight cars threw
a shadow on the mud, and with only his
bald head between him and the sun, he
preached the gospel to the crowd ofloafers,
half of whom were asleep.
Mr. Matchctt has also started Sunday
services at "Waterloo Station, about a mile
the other side of Jackson City, and every
Sunday in the future he and his helpers will
hold forth in true Methodist style. A
Sunday-school will also be started next
Sunday, as several of the colored families
in the neighborhood of the brick yards
have requested his aid in this direction.
Mr. Mntchett said that one of his converts,
Lee Candler, Harfy's brother, will join
church on probation this week. He has
almost given up hopes of converting Harry,
to be brought into the fold. His gentle
ways and winning smile have deserted him;
he thinks he has been treated badly, and he
doesn't believe in religion, anyhow.
REFORM AT ROSLTN.
Sheriff Palmer's reforming influence
was felt at Roslyn yesterday, as well as
at the railroad resor'tat the end of tho Long
Bridge. The saloons were closed, the
gambling-houses were cloeed, tho beaten
track leading to the policy dens were untrod,
and altogether tho decent inhabitants of
the place experienced a day of peaceful
rest. There were no drunken brawls such
as frequently disturb the Sunday quiet of
the place, no shouting negroes staggered
through the streets, and no fleeced victims
of the gambler's wiles wended their way
sadly down thej'otomac side as they wero
wont to do in Sundays gone by.
The boats running to Dixie's landing
did a good business, but their loads were
composed of pleasure seekers of a different
sort. Few "were seeking to buck the tiger

or acquire jags, and those few were dis
appointed. Of course liquor could be
procured, and it would take weoks of earn
est effort on the part of the uew sheriff to
bring things to such a state that it cannot
be procured, but, altogether, the day was
freer from drunkenness and disorder than
it has been for many Sundays past.
Sheriff Palmer has evidently started
out not to disappoint tlie element that se
cured his election and defeated Veitch.
That his good work may go on is the de
vout prayer of every respectable citizen of

If 'Operators Can't Resume Work
To-day He Will Order Out Troops.
Labor Lender Lawless Telegraphs

Charleston, "W. Ta., July 7. Gov. Mac
Corkle staled to-night that he would try to
induce the operators in the Elknorn and
Blucrields regions to make an honest ef
fort to resume to-morrow, and if they said
they could not, he would at once order
troops out to protect all men who wanted
The governor says he is confident troops
will have to be ordered out to-morrow.
However, telegrams received at the State
house from the Elkhorn region to-day in
dicate that there is apparently no cause
for immediate apprehension of trouble
Dispatches were received from Lawless,
the local labor leader in that section, stat
ing ho had ordered all the strikers to
cease carrying guns as per order of the
governor, except two or three who will act
as his body guard, as hlTiays his lire has
been threatened by some of the guards em
ployed by the company
Tho governor replied by saying he was
glad to hear of tho decision of the leaders
and warning him tha turbulent demon
strations must cease or troops would be
called out to suppress them.
A telegram from the Governor's private
secretary, Capt J. B. "White, at Elkhorn,
says that a passenger train on the North
Fork branch of the Norfolk and "Western
was derailed last night by someone throw
ing a switch, but that no one was hurt.
The dispatch states that the men are all
quiet to-day and few are moving about.
The Governor said this morning that he
had been advised that United States Mar
shal Garden and eight deputies arrived at
Elkhorn to-day and took possession of the
railroad property. Tills was the fir.st news
Gov. McCorkle or Ad)t. Holly received that
the federal authorities were taking a
hand in suppressing the trouble.
Lick Branch colliery will try to start to
morrow with twenty new men. The
sheriff and deputies will bo on hand to
guaid them. "Whether their services are
needed depends upon how much sineienty

a desire to prevent disordei.

Torrents of Ihiin Fell in Chicago and

Injured Reports from "Wisconsin.
Chicago, July 7. One of the most
furious wind and rain storms known in
this vicinity. foryearjS pasged over the city
about Gclock this evening, coming from
tho northwest. The day had been in
tensely hot and there were many people
out on the lake in Eailboats, and as the
storm came very suddenly it is feared
that several lives were lost.
The different life-saving crews have
been busy all evening tracing rumors of
capsized boats, people clinging to planks,
etc.. and up to 10 p. m. have brought in
the occupants of three capsized boats, all
in a very exhausted condition. No trace
ot any others has been found up to this
hour and it is Loped that no more are out.
The police at the Cottage Grove avenue
station on the south side claim that they
distinctly saw a tail boat with three occu
pants disappear during the height of the
gale and that nothing was seen of it
again during daylight.
NO TRACES FOUND.
The life-savers r-nn the South Side cruised
about that locality for Esme time, but
round no trace3 or a wreck. It is probable
that more missing persons will be reported
from the various suburbs at a later hour.
Up to within twenty minutesjbf the
descent of the storm upou the city the sky
had been clear and the sun shining brightly.
Suddenly heavy black cloudsbegan toga ther
in tho northwest and a few minute3 later
a terrific gale or wind, accompanied by a
perfect Hood of rain aud furious thunder
and lightning, was sweeping over the city.
Many basements were flooded all over the
city and in some instances-fire engines had
to be called for to pump out stores. Several
houses in the outlying districts of the city
were struck by lightning and seriously
damaged. Two small residences were com
pletely destroyed, but no one injured.
At the height of the storm, a signal tower
beside the Panhandle tracks, at Adce
street, was blown over and the tower
man, August Boedlow, sustained fatal
injuries. Several others were reported
painfully cut and bruised by flying debris.
At 11 p.m. the police and life-savers think
that all the missing boats, both row Loats
and sail boats, aro accounted for, al
though it is possible that a few may yet

The people in the boats which were
blown out into tho lake by tho hurricane
report having had an awful experience.
So far tho only fatality actually verified
is tho case of Charles Klein, John Ross
and Chailcs L. Shook, who wero out in
a rowboat when the storm burst, and of
whom no traco has yet "been round. The
yawl boat or tho yacht Hattio B. was
picked up this evening off Twenty-sixth
street, but it is thought tho yacht has

The damage to telegraph and telephone
wires northwest of the city was very great.
Every telegraph wire was prostrated,
many poles being carried away, and it was
10 o'clock before telegraphic communi
cation was restored to Milwaukee. Even
then it was very precarious, there being
but two very shaky wires working, while
the demand for service was enormous.
Great gangs of repairers are out from
both ends of the route.
CAME NEAR DROWNING.
Bob Terrell and John Fitzgerald, who
were out in a rowboat when the storm
came up, had a narrow escape from
drowning, If the tug Success had not
been near they, in all probability, would
have gone down. The boatcapsizedand tho
tug started to tho rescue. A line was
thrown, which waq grabbed by Fitz
gerald, and he was pulled on board the tug.
Alec Lonto, engineer of the tug, seeing
that Terrell was sinking, jumped in to
save him. Terrell grabbed the engineer
in such a manner that he was unable to
use his arms. A line was thrown them
from the tug and just as they wero sink

to grab the line and both wero pulled
on board the tug. Terrell is in a serious

New York, July 7. To-day in police
parlance was a dry Sunday. That is,.ac

and tlie excise laws were being enforced
This, however, was not strictly true. A
stranger in New York might travel the
whole city over without being able to
quench his thirst, but the man who knew
the bartender or the saloon-keeper or the
"man at the door" had no need to go thirsty.
The police, however, made a determined
effort to enforce the laws, and doubtless-tlie
saloons were as tightly shut as they can
be cloned during the operations of the pres
Where it was believed that the laws were

avenues had their blinds drawn up and
were empty. As many as one-hair of the
corner saloons, however, kept the blinds
down and managed in acme ways or other
to serve an occasional customer.
At the up-town hotels the excise law
was well observed. AH of the bars were
closed and guests were terved wth drinks
only when a meal was served. The drug
stores sold little liquor.
Even the excursion steamers sailing from
the city closed their bars. Altogether
the determination of the police commis

This is the third child to be born Into
the President's family and all of them ara
girls. Ruth is four years old and Esther two.
Only a pawing glance could be obtained
of the President this afternoon, but thac
was sufficient to note an expression ot
satisfaction on the face of the Chief Ex

that a boy baby would not have been un
