Philadelphia, Oct. 18.—Modern sur
gery achieved a notable triumph at tbe
Philadelphia hospital when a Ctesarian
operation was performed by I>r. William
E. Ashton, obstetrician at the institu
tion, yesterday, which will go on record
as a remarkable incident of modern
science. The patient was a young col
ored woman of robust health. Both
child and mother were saved, and are
expected to recover. Dr. Ashton was
assisted by Professor Hirst, obstetrician
of the University of Pennsyl
vania; Professor Montgomery, Miss
Smith, chief nurse at the Phila
delphia hospital, and her aids,
Miss McClevey and Miss Burkhemer.
Dr. Ashton finished tbe operation in the
remarkably short time of twenty-one
minutes and Jhirtv seconds. The child,
a female, has been placed in an incu
bator, a curious contrivance resembling
very much in appearance a child's bath
tub". It is of tin, made with a section
on each side for holding hot water, and
a compartment in the middle for the
child. Uniform temperature of 100 de
grees is maintained in the compartment.
Justice Miller Laid to Itest at Keokuk,
Keokuk, lowa, Oct. 18. —A committee
of citizens met the body of Justice Mil
ler at Burlington and conducted it to
Keokuk, arriving at 9 o'clock this morn
ing. At the depot the honorary pall
bearers and various committees took the
body in charge, and it was escorted by
the Second Regiment lowa National
Guard, Torrence Post G. A. R., the
guard of honor and several thousand cit
izens. The body was borne to the fed
eral building, which had been elabor
ately draped in mourning. The casket
was conveyed to the courtroom, in which
the dead justice frequently presided, and
placed upon a handsome catafalque.
The face of the beloved jurist was ex
posed to view, and during the few hours
the body lay in state it was viewed by
several thousand people.
At two o'clock funeral services were
held at the Unitarian church, of which
deceased had been a member. The
church was entirely inadequate to ac
commodate even a small portion of the
crowd about it long before the doors were
opened. The funeral procession, headed
i>y the clergymen, moved up the central
aisle, followed by the pall-bearers bear
ing the casket. In a few minutes the
family entered with Chief Justice
Fuller, members of the state supreme
court, and various bar delegations.
There were many handsome floral trib
utes. The burial service was read by
Paßtor Hassall, a prayer was offered
by Rev. Mcllwain, and a sermon was
preached by Rev. Hassall.
Tbe funeral procession to Oakland
cemetery was the largest ever seen here,
including officials and court dignitaries,
military and civic societies, the fire-de
partment and citizens. The hearse was
drawn by four black horses. The ser
vices at the grave were very simple.
Public and private buildings were
draped in black. A high wind during
the early morningdestroyed many of the
decorations. Besides the distinguished
gentlemen who accompanied the re
mains from Washington, many others
assembled here to pay their last tribute
of respect. The supreme court of the
state waa represented, and large delega
tions attended from all the states in
cluded in the circuit presided over by
the dead justice.
The Committee of Fifty Ferreting Out
tbe Assassins.
New Orleans, Oct. 18.—The meeting
of the committee of fifty tonight was
secret, but the committee announced
that it would pursue the investigation
to the end, bring the murderers of Hen
nessy to justice and break up the
Italian assassination leagues in this city.
A thousand dollars was raised on the
spot, and by next week, the committee
expects to have $50,000 to assist in
the work. One of the facts stated
was that the ship Elysia is com
ing up next week with 700 Italian
emigrants on board. The mayor inter
viewed the custom house authorities,
and aa a result they will go down and
meet the ship. Unless the emigrants
can satisfy the officers that they are de
sirable financially and morally, they will
not be allowed to land. Joe Macheca,
who was arrested today, has heretofore
been considered a prominent Italian
above the murderous plots of his more
ignorant fellow-countrymen. Since his
arrest some damaging evidence
has been developed. The ladies
owning the shanty where the assassins
are supposed to have plotted and gath
ered, identified Macheca as the man
who rented the place from them, and
paid a month's rent in advance. Sev
eral parties also say they followed Ma
checa on the night of the murder. He
and the Matrangas, also supposed to
be the leaders in the affair, were eating
a big supper while the shooting was go
ing on. They remained until 3 o'clock
in the morning, having a good time, and
when they, parted Macheca is alleged to
have said: "Boys, I've done all I can;
I'm only sorry he was not killed at the
first fire."

following committee meetings were an
nounced : Foreign aftairs, in New York

The Rumor That a Fleet Was to Proceed
to Lisbon and Demand Settlement of
the Delagoa Bay Claims Denied.
Lisbon, Oct. 18.—The Commercio Do
Portugal publishes a letter from Berne,
declaring that a fleet of American war
ships will arrive at Lisbon shortly for
the purpose of demanding the payment
of claims made by the United States for
damages arising from the seizure by
Portugal of the Delagoa Bay railway.
Washington, Oct. 18. —General Batch
eller, United States minister to Portugal,
after reading the London dispatch about
the Delagoa bay claim, said the matter
was before a board of arbitration, and
until the board reached a conclusion no
action would be taken by the United
The assistant secretary of the navy
said this afternoon, there is not a word
of truth in the report that a fleet of
American war ships had been ordered
to Lisbon to enforce the payment of the
Delagoa Bay railway claims, or for any
other purpose. It is probable the
cruiser Baltimore, now in northern Eu
ropean waters, will visit Lisbon, but no
significance is attached to this.
Swindled His Wife.
New York, Oct. 18. —Samuel W.
Lewis, a broker, is locked up on the
charge of swindling his wife out of a
fortune by purchasing worthless stocks,
or pretending to do so. When he had
reduced her to penury he left her, and
detectives finally located him in Hart
ford. On the way back Lewis jumped
from the train in the night, while it "was
running twenty five miles an hour.
Detective Yon Gerichten leaped after
him and caught him. Both men were
quite badly hurt.
Drying House Burned.
Anaheim, Cal., Oct. 17. —The drying
house of John Hunter, two miles north
east of Anaheim, was burned to the
ground this morning. Loss, about $1000.
San Pedro Republicans Scarce as Hen's
Teeth This Year.
Editors Herald —Ha! ha! They
came, they saw, and they did not con
quer. The Republican meeting here
last night was largely attended by ladies
and Democrats, but Republicans were
conspicuous by their absence. The ad
vertised grand torchlight was a misera
ble fizzle, and had it not been for the re
cruits from Wilmington and Long Beach,
San Pedro would not have been able to
furnish enough Republicans to have
one. As it was, there was in line from
San Pedro eighteen men and three boys,
and from Wilmington and Long Beach
fifty-five men and boys.
Never before have the prospects for a
great Democratic victory in this precinct
been as flattering as they are at present.
Aguirre felt lonely, as he could plainly
see that Gibson would snow him under
beautifully on November 4th. if San
Pedro has anything to say about it.
Senator Bowers tailed to enthuse the
audience when he said San Diego
wanted no appropriations for her harbor
and San Pedro ought to have at least
as much as Galveston, viz., $6,000,000.
For some reason or another the
speakers forgot to mention Markham's
name at all, and the only issues dis
cussed were those occupying the boards
between 1840 and 1866, with the excep
tion of what they termed the Demo
cratic steal of more than $6,000,000 by
the last legislature. They forgot to
state, however, that Senator Bowers of
Wan Diego voted for all of this steal, as
they term it.
The Republican, leaders are already
beginning to quarrel over the handling
of the sack, and if frequent trips to

elections and more sacks for all. to

Stamboul's Work.
Between heats the stallion Stamboul,
driven by John Goldsmith, accom
panied by a running teaser, piloted by
McDowell, was sent to beat the Pacific
coast stallion record held by
himself. The horse was in the best
possible form, and in warming up
showed a magnificent stride. When he
got the word a dozen watches chronicled
the fact, and as the quarter was checked
(33)4 seconds) to the half the great
horse went like clockwork in liOti
At the three-quarter he had not slack

McCorbitt's yearling colt, Freedom,

the driver's skillful pilotage, not only
beating the yearling stallion record, but
smashing Norlaine's yearling record.
The time by quarters was .37)4,
1 :65 and 2:29%. When the time was
given out, there was another scene of
excitement, yelling and cheering; hats
were thrown in the air and a perfect

Pbincbton, N. J., Oct. 18.—The an

was remarkable for fast time made in
the 100 and 220 yards dashes, by Carey
of '93. Four experienced timers gave
914 seconds as the record for 100 yards,
which breaks the world's record made
at Washington last Saturday, by John
S. Owen, jr., of Detroit; and 22 seconds
for 220 yards on a curved track, equal

distance straight away.

Disagree as to Straight-A way Trotting
Sanol's Possibilities.
New York, Oct. 18.—Bonner does not
like Baldwin's statement that Maud S
and Jay-Eye-See would stand no show in
trotting on a straight mile course, and
that the record would be lowered to two
minutes. He says: "The public pat
ronize trotting races to see horses trot,
and with a mile straight away very little
could be seen."
"Will you send Sunol for a record if
the proposed track is perfect?"
"I am opposed to straightaway tracks,
for runners and trotters. The oval
i track is the only one for horse-racing,
;and a record made on a straightaway or
flrite-shaped track is valueless. In my
•opinion Sunol is a wonderfully long
fotrider, and this straightaway would be
just the thing for her."
Bonner does not believe a trotter
will ever fairly travel a two-minute
mile. He says: "That's nonsense.
;The fastest trotter in the world
ibarring none—is this filly Sunol. Why
flook at her. She is only a baby just
'/now. Yet only two horses Maud S.
and Jay-Eye-See—have trotted better.
With everything turning out favorably,
she may get down to 2:05 or 2:07. tt
may be 2:04, but that is the limit of a
trotter's speed.

Retaliatory Action Advocated by One Fac
tion, While Another Thinks France has
Already Done Too Much in that Line.
Paris, Oct. 18. —There has been great
excitement during the week at Lyons,
over the new United States tariff law,
and Burdeau, the Lyons deputy giving
notice that he will, in the chamber, de
mand retaliatory action for the increased
duties on French goods. He will espec
ially propose that a retaliatory duty be
placed on petroleum, and also suggest
that boards of inspection be established
for tbft PTCRininat.irvn nf nil imnnrh
-Jroni the United States. On the other
hand, the committee for the defense of
the silk market, held a great meeting at
Lyons, at which the speakers took the
ground that retaliation was likely to do
more harm than good.
The president of the chamber of com
merce called attention to the fact that
the retaliation policy against Italy had
already cost the Lyons market 7,700,000
francs worth of business, and given Ger
many industrial supremacy in' Italy.
Besides, the notable injustice committed
by France and other countries toward
America in the matter of pork, had led to
conferring extraordinary powers upon
the president of the United States by
the Edmunds retaliation bill, and might
entail dangers to the great French
staple articles of export, particularly
wines and silks.
The president was followed by a sen
ator and two members of the chamber
of deputies, all of whom spoke to the
same effect.
The Petit Journal thinks Ihe bill af

has been injurious to America. The

mistake and the circumstances are

by the New York Associated Press.]
The emperor will open the lantag in
person on November 11th. The em
peror desires the passage of a measure
for the reduction of the prices of articles
of food and the lent of dwellings for the
working-classes. Her You May bach,
minister of public works, who was
charged with the operation of the
bill providiug for the erection of
dwellings for workingmen in ev
ery populous center, has secured
imperial censure because of the incom
plete condition of his proposals. It is
the opinion in official circles that the
trouble is due to restraints placed upon
Maybach by the minister of finance.
The emperor had a grand scheme, but
Minister Yon Maybach, on consulting
with Miquel, the Prussian min
ister of finance, found that there
were obstacles to the investing
of more than 8,000,000 marks in build
ing small tenements in the suburbs.
This incident applies to the general po
sition of thr government in regard to
schemes for costly social reforms and
accompanying projects for abolition of
duties on cattle and grain be
tween Italy, Austria and Germany,
and leaves the budget of the future
in a dense fog. Miquel insists that the
government should proceed with the
greatest caution. Miquel's policy im
plies waiting to see what effect the new
United States tariff will have upon some
sources of German prosperity before
committing the country to long tariff
treaties in any direction.

is sewed together is called a coat or a vest. They care not
whether it wears. The idea with them is, the garment will
bring so much profit. Not so with us. We take pride in

clothing is our specialty. We take the same pains to secure
good wearing and well made goods, when buying ioo suits,
