iiow much better this dignified re'

vith brickbats!
Gonzales, leader of the Mexican orchestia
now in this country, says that he
and his men came with the idea that it
made no difference bow they played, for
the people of the United States were
without musical appreciation. Mr. Gonzales
admits that he soon discovered his
error. Lucky man. There are prominent
men in his line who began with the
same error aud haven't discovered it yet.
Tii?RK have been few men who emJ
ployed American labor more extensively
th&nJolmiioach. InNewYoikandafcCnes
! tor, Pennsylvania, thousands of men have
been borne on his pay rolls. This man,
who came u p from poverty and bard manual
labor to the harder labor of conducting
a vast business?who has struggled
manfully to maintain an American shipbuilding
industry?this man is laid on the
tilt of bis back under the reform adminj
istratiou of a partv hostile to protection.
John Kuacii, who baa been as much
denounced as any man in the country for
being a protectionist and a Kepublican;
who was held up to the pubiic scorn as a
nun coining vast autns of money at the
expenso of his less favored countrymen;
this "bloated monopolist" goes to tto wall
and makes an assignment.
This is the man whom the administration
was bound to punish for getting a
contract to build a government vessel. It
it not at >U unlikely that tbe reiusal 01 tuo
Secretary o( the Navy to accept it vessel
built according to Savy Department plana
(oraished to the builder, was the last
itraw that broke John Boaoh't buck. Perhaps
the (allure ol thia enterprising American
will be regarded as some atonement
lor the sin ol being a protectionist.
Tilt summer novel which might have
been entitled tbe Hungry Patriot, or, the
Disappointed Office-Seeker, (alls under
the evil eya of the reviewer before it is a
week old. The story ran that sundry
Senators and Congressmen were imjwrtuning
tbe President to give their man a
puce. When the President learned thai
the candidate had been in Waahtogtra
since March 4, playing the political
Micawber, he eiclaimcp, "Aviot, there,
me hearties! No idlers on this ship!" and
toon to the end of the last chapter.
As a cold and dreadtnl reality, men whe
amped in Washington before March 4,
determined to stay there until assured
that they were the accepted children ol
the administration, bare been getting
place ever aince Mr. Cleveland begat
business. Some of those who squatted
before the gates got nothing more that
foreign missions, while others got rcallj
comfortable places at home.
The probability is that the President
did not speak the heroic speech attributed
to him by an ardent, even a consuming
correspondent who longs to Be rye hli
country in a fmmnlnliin.
Ej-Sskator Pomiboy, desiring to bi
ppointcd a Commissioner of the Distrlc
o! Columbis, wrote to a friend in Wash
iajton to help the thing along. In hi
communication he recltea the fact that hi
declined to accept the Prohibition noml

Miles City, Most., July id.?Excitement
ran high here yesterday caused by
the report that five cowboys and seven
Oheyennes had been killed'in a light on the
Kosebud, at Fort Keogh. It Is learned
that the Pine Bldge and other Oheyennes
on the Tongue river are quarreling with
tho Oheyennes on the Rosebud, insisting
upon the latter leaving their reservation
to go south on the warpath. The Oheyennes
on the Kosebud are peaceable and
prefer to remain quiet. The others
threatened the life of Indian
Agent Stevens at Rosebud, lie
fled to Fort Ouster and telegraphed to
the department commander at Ft. Sjnelling.
The latter ordored Major Logan, at
Ft. Keogh, formerly acting Cheyenne
agent, to proceed to the agency and investigate.
LiOgan has great influence over
the Northern Oheyennes on the Tongue
and ltosebud rivers, and will probaoly
avert bloodshod. lie started at once for
the scene with a small detachment ot. soldiers,
and the clliiens believe that the
trouble will soon be quelled.

Fori Kxogii, Most., July 19.?News of
serious trouble among the northern
Oheyennes has been received hero. The
following official telegram was^reoeivetl |
late last night: The commanding officer
at Fort Caster reports that Acting Agent
Stevens, for the Rosebud and Tongue
River Indians of the Northern Cheyenne
reserve, is at Custer with
acting Agent .Burslow of the Crows, and
that titevens reports there is danger of
serious trouble between tbe Rosebud Indians
under Two Moons and Little Wolf,
and the Tongue River Indians headed by
Black Wolf and White Bull. The latter
are attempting to force the Rosebud Indians
to live on the Tongue river and
threaten to Kill Stevens if he attempts to
interfere.
The report says that the Indians are
much exci ted over the matter. The Rosebud
Indians positively refuse to go.
There are now in camp with the Tongue
River Indians al> jut 118 Pine Ridge Indians
under Crsscy-head and American
Horse. The latter has said he will die
rather thau go back to the Pine Ridge
agency.
An exciting report has re ched here'
that the Northern Cheyenneshave broken
out, and they are led to the war path by
the news from the Southern Cheyenncs
in the Indian.Territory. Still another report
Bays that in an engagement betwec n
Carpenter and Robinson's cowboys five
cowooyB and seven Indians were killed.
These reports all seem well founded, and
there is great excitement among the
ranchers and settlers on the Tongue and
Rosebud rivers.

ROACH'S FAILURE
Bald to be-Daeto tlio Rejection of theDol*
phln by Secretary Whitney.
New Yqrk, Jaly l8.?John Koacb,of
the firm of John Botch A Sons, the faraong
shlp-bnililen, has assigned to George
W. Qaintard and George E. Weed. The
failuro is ascribed to the refusal of Secretary
Whitney to accept the dispatch boat
Dolphin, constructed by direction of the
U. S. Government.
He assigns aU his property to George
W. Quintord and George E. Weed, with
certain preferences. He first directs the
payment of the wages and salaries ol his
laborers and other employes, as
the law provides shall bo done,
and prefers William Rowland, of New
Brunswick, N. J , to-the amount of $02,217
98, for money loaned and work done
and materials furnished for sbip-buildlng
operations. For a portion of this dent Mr.
Rowland holds four promissory notes,
made by Mr. Roach. He also prefers a
promisory note made to him for $20,000.
discounted by the Mechanics' and Traders'
National Bank, date June 10, 1885, and
payable in three months. P. W. Gallau*
dec & Co.. of No. 2 Wall street, are also
preferred, for money advauced as follows:
$20,000 loaned June 27, 1885";" 810,000
loaned July 2, 1885: $10,000 loaned July
11, 1885; total, $10,000.
Ho directs that all his other debts and
liabilities be paltf, including all lawful
claims against him by A. R. Whitney,
Thomas F. Rowland, James E. Ward,
George W. Quintard and Wm. Rowland
for indemnity against liability incurred
by them by reason of their having become
snretiea for and having executed bonds at
the instance of the assignor and for his
benefit upon certain contracts entered
into by him in or about July, 1883, with
tbe U. S. Government, represented by the
Secretary of the Navy, lor tbe construction
of three steel cruisers, the Boston, the
Atlanta and the Chicago, and of the dispatch
boat Dolphin. He direcfs the payment
of lawful olaims of tbe estate of Levi
Kerr against him for and by reason of the
execution by Mr. Kerr (since dead) of certain
of the bonds and contracts.
.Mr. Roach is at his villa at College
Point, on Long Island. .He is confined to
his bed with an attack of illness. Stephen
K.acJi, tue youngest son, Ham;
"My tether is ill in bed and will see no
one. I have no authority to say anything
of the failure further than that every cent
my father owes will be paid in full immediately."
"When will you resume business?"
| "1 cannot say when, if at all. Poor
father! I fear that this blow will be more
than he can bear."
"What was the cause of your father's
failure?"
Principally the rejection of the Dolphin
by the Government, I think. Two 01 the
other vessels are launched now, the Boston
in Chester and the Atlantic' here. The
Chicago is still on tho stocks, and the pubho
is fully aware of the fate of the Dolphin.
What action Secretary Whitney will take
in regard to the others I do not know,"
concluded Mr. Roach, Jr.

Method* of the Various Societies.
Special Corrtfjmdcnce of the IiiUUigeruxr.
Sabatoqa, N. Y., July 10.?A year's
residence in London, as a correspondent
for tho American press, disposes me to be- .
lieve that the fearful picture of sin and
crime presented by the Pall Mall Oasetie
is not at all overdrawn. But the blackest
cloud has its silvery lining, and there is
another and a brighter side to this horrible
story of the sins and sorrows of a great
city. Your readers may be curious to
know what Christian philanthropy 1a <
doing for the fallen in that modern Baby*
Ion. i
The principal institutions in that me- '
tropolia whose object is to lessen the ctirse (
of prostitution and lift its. victims into a j
better life are the Female Preventive and I
Refornlatory Society, the Female Mission i
to tho Fallen and the Midnight Meeting :
Movement All three have an identical i
aim, though tho first, as its title indicates, 1
makes a specialty of coses in which the j
ovil course has'not been fully adopted, j
but seems imminent, owing to the poor
girl's destitute condition or vicious sur- t
roundings. The large number of girls wno i
go from the country to seek work in* Lon- <
don, aud fail to find it, makes the efforts i
of such a society as this, peculiarly neces* ]
sory and beneficent. Far removed from i
friends, out of employment, without food i
or shelter, and mooting at every turn those :
who appear to liave made the sale of their 1
virtue profitable, the temptation that ]
comes to these forlorn creatures is very ,
strong. i
TUB PITFALLS. J
Moreover, there is always at hand those
who aro ready to put the tempter's -suggestion
into words, and to paint before the 1
susceptible minds of this dass of girls flat- ]

iye of a life of sin. For these, who are
just ready to iall, who are so strongly
urged, almost driven, to take the fatal
leap, this society, whose motto is that
prevention is better than oure, pnte
forth its beat efforts, and some, through
its agency, are saved. Another claas
which, it seeks to reach are those who
have been betrayed and deserted, and
whose delicate needs drive them for'a
time into infirmaries and hospital?.
Their illness over, these victims of
man's perfidy must go out again into
the world. Too weak to do hard work;
and if they could do it, too much disgraced
in the eyes of society to be given'the op}
portunity of doing it, what is left for such,
preatures but to seek to ipaintain theip*
selves and their offspring by ministering
to the passions that have ruined' theni?
Often in such cases that most sacred of till
earthly affections, a mother's love for her
babe, is the strongest incentive to such a
course. But the agents of this society Btep
in and a few, though only a few, are cared
for and given a new start in life. In all;
over twenty thousand young women and i
girls of tender yeare have peon hp)ped by
this institution, and demands for aid come
in at the present time at the rate of 1,400
annually,

The Female Mission, to me Fallen is an
organization whose object is to reclaim
women by tho agency of women. Consid- ,
ering bow pold and hard ladies of respectabiilty
uanally are tqvard t^eijr Igee for* ,
tanate sisters, such an' organisation caftnot
be too highly commended, and pos?
eibly the growing power of this pocletv .
may mqrfc the dawning of a npw and bet-!
ter'era. As regards the papt, if man's

greater than that of the opposite sex, by
reason of her greater influence in shaping
the rules of society, and in view also of
the peculiar a4vant$ge" j}Jje has over man
in approaching this class and eurerlng Into
tbeir feelings and wants. Happily the

t The youngest of the Isdles, whose face
i and manner indicated the utmost refinement,
was Mated at a small organ, and
passed the lime in playing witches from
favorite hymns, in which the others
joined her occasionally in singing. At
intervals conversation was indulged in on
the work in hand and the particular prospects
of that evening. The entire proceedings
were marked by the most perfect
modesty. Nothing was said that
conld make the presence of gentlemen
embarrassing to the ladies, or vice versa.
Of the poor wanderers sought to be
gathered in, all spoke ill the most tenderly
compassionate tones?so different from
the common way of] this bard world, like
old soldiers, these workers in the noblest
of causes talked of former scenes and straggles.
A meeting in Leicester Square was
poken of. It was very large, the women
well dressed, but unusually depraved, as
might be expected in,that neighborhood,
and as it cccuired daring the Jumbo and
Alice craw,' nothing could be done,
for the girls monopolized the time
with the singing of the popular refrains
of that exciting period. Another

Withremlniscencesof this kind, an hour i

Later in the evening, as thorcsaltof ,

in the mission room are well filled. No

ihe-: ladies, some speaking to several at a

Chicago clings to the first pUcfl by the
narrow majority of two games, which will
probably disappear this week, as she has
to meet her strong Eastern foes on their
own grounds, and as they are playing
much stronger ball than during the llret
Eastern tour, the leaders can look lor
more numerous disasters. Providence,
eight games in the rear ol New York, occupies
third place, with Philadelphia
next, aeven games away. The balance
are pretty well bunched, with St. Louis,
Boston, Detroit and Buffalo in the order
given. Detroit, however, is a tie with
Boston on games won and haa lostbnt one
more than (hem, ao that the chances of
stepping into fifth place in the conrse o( a
week are very bright.
It is no* almost conceded that the St.
Louis Urown'a ore aura winners of the
American pennant; true they have 47
games rot to play, and a bad streak ol
luck and misfortune might down them,
but as the chances of ill-luck and misfortune
are e?en, it is dollars to cents that
the flag -yrill float over Von der Ahe's
park. After the leader the fight is a very
not and pretty one between Cincinnati,
Pittsburgh and Louisville, who are only
three games apart and' whose potitions
are constantly changing. As for the balance
of the teams the less said of them the
better: they cannot atam th) tide ol misfortune
and will no doubt divide anung
themselves the tail honors of the Association.

His family did not want film to play ball,
but he was weak and the doctor advised

and learned to pitch.
President Lucas has asked the other
League clubs to consent to the 25 cent

There is not much danger of Detroit
disbanding now. Since tho club has been
strengthened the attendance has wonderfully
improved and tho people are very
enthusiastic about their team's flue work.
In the first two games with New York,
on their own grounds, the Chicago men
played as if they were stared to death.
New York, on tho other hand, showed
nerve and confidence. There was a strong
contest between the two clubs, and a general
feeling the Chicago corild not be depended
