WASHINa TON, April 20. - [Special to Tribune-Copyright, 1888, by the California Associated Press.] The Senate yesterday passed a bill of great Importance to miners, introduced by Stewart, materially changing the existing law. After prescribing the method of locating mining claims the trill provides an amendment to Section 2325 of the Revised Statutes that no more than three thousand feet in length along the vein or cla'm located prior to May 10, 18"72, andl Jt min :re than one claim located after said dal-e, shall be included in the same application fur patent and no moge than 160 atresof placr ground shall be included in ant applicatiioni for a patent.

It is also provided in the bill that upon claims already located previous to March 1st in any year, the annual work shall be per formed on such claim prior to noon of August 1st instead of January 2qd as is now the law. "Paris Mutuals" All the Go. NEW YORK, April 26.-[Special to the Salt Lake Tribune-Copyright, 1888, by the California Associated Press.]-A war on the bookmakers is likely to be made during the present racing season. It is urged by prom Inent horsemen that the adoption of the French Mutual system would d) away' with many scandals of the turf. It will not be surprising to see the bookmakers driven from every eastern course. They would lose the business for which they would now pay a bonus of from $5,000 upwards per day, but the public would be the gainers, for the bonus represents a dead loss to the betters. While a large proportion goes into the Jockey Club treasuries the clubs themselves are disposed in favor of reform, and thinking members express the opinion that the sport would thrive more surely if the prevalent system of betting was abolished. Some say "Either the bookmaking or horse racing must go." Mr. Conkling's Estate. NEW YORK, Special.-The Tribune says: "An examination of ex-Senator Conkling's worldly affairs shows that he was not so poor as was supposed. His eight lots near Morn ing Side Park on 114th Street are near the site of the proposed Episcopal cathedral, and will enhance greatly in value. 'T'hey are worth now $70,000. The Utica property is valued at $30,000, and the Washington real estate, which consists of unimproved lots in a good location, is also valuable. The en tire value of the estate, including realty and personal property, is $250,000. Besides this there are a number of bills receivable for professional services which will add consid erable to the estate. No will has been found. The Yorktown and Vesuvius. PHILADELPHIA, April 28-Two trains from Washington bearing Secretary Whitney and party arrived afew minutes before one o'clock and were at once taken on board the steamer "Columbia" where they were received by the city officials and prominent citizens. The steamer meanwhile proceeded up the river to Cramp's shipyard. The "Yorktown" was launched at 3:06 p. m. and was christened by Miss Eleanor Breckeiridge. The dyna mite cruiser followed off the ways at 3:10 being christened by Miss Nellie Cameron, daughter of Senator Don Carmeron. The launches were unusually successful. The U. S. steamer "Dispatch" which lay out in the river, fired salutes as the vessels moved off the ways into the stream amid the screech ing of whistles, the ringing of bells and the cheers of the multitude of spectators.

"QUBEEN F THE PACIFIC" SUNK. Passengers All iemoved and Vessel Goes Down in Port. SAN FBANcIpCO, April 30.-An Associs ted Press dispatch from Port Hartford gives the following account of the sinking of the Queen of the Pacific at that place this morn ing: The Pacific Coast Steamship Com pany's steamer Queen of the Pacific, which left San Francisco yesterday afternoon for southern coast ports, sprung a leak about 2:30 o'clock, the cause of which is not known. Powerful pumps were put to work as soon as the leak was discovered, but the water gained rapidly and the ieasel sank in twenty feet of water two hundred yards from the wI.iars(1 . _, s ,$ ,.present resting easy on the bottom. Upon nearing Port Hartford the pssengcrs were lowered into the life boats- and taken ashore. Their escape is considered miraculous and all on board speak in the highest terms of the captain and the crew. Captain Alexander states that he was called at 2:45 and found the water pouring into the vessel and imme diately gave orders to the officers and crew to shift the freight and make port with all speed. The .ater poured faster than the freight could be shifted. He kept the engi neers and firemen under the most per emptory orders and at their posts when the men were up to their necks in water. The cargo consisted of 500 tons of mineral and merchandise, the value of which was about $50,000. The Queen of the Pacific is one of the largest and finest vessels on the coast. She sla owned by the Pacific Coast Steamship Company and was valued at 8500,000. A tugboat with a full complement of wrecking and pumping apparatus on board left this evening for Port Hartford. She will arrive there early to morrow morning and will at once pump out the steamer. GROWING OUT OF THE STRIKE. A Fatal Shooting by A "Q." Fireman. CHIcAeo, April 29.-The Daily News' Galesburg, Ill., special says: The only thing talked of here to night is the killitg of Her bert Newell and the dangerous wounding of George Cable, both "Q." strikers, by Albert Hedberg, one of the new "Q." firemen. The shooting occurred last night close to Hed berg's house. The murderer is in the county jail, to guard whom extra precautions have been taken. (While the strikers say they intend that the law shall take its caurse, there is a deep undercurrent of feeling that may produce violence. Hedberg claims that he was assaulted by Newell and Cable when on his way home. He drew a revolver and fired twice. The first ball passed through Newell's heart and the second struck Cable in the center of the forehead, glancing around the skull and issuing behind the ear. There was but one eye-witness, the wife of one of the now engineers. She partly.oor roborates Hedberg's story. There is con siderable testimony against Hedberg to be developed. It will be sworn that while in a pool room, a short time before the shoot ing, he made 'a threat that he would shoot any man who followed him. It is alleged that Newell and Cable were on their way to Alderman Erickson's house to ask him to come to a caucus, and that they did not fol low Hedberg or start a row with him. Newell was one of the oldest engineers on the Burlington and leaves a family. The Constitution's Centennial. PHILADELPHIA, April 28.-In repouse to a call issued some time ago by-Governor Bea ver, the Governors of the Thirteen Original States or their representatives, with the ex ception of Massachusetts, met in Carpenter's Hall here to-.lay, to consider plans for the establishment of a fitting and lasting mem orial to commemorate the first century of the constitution of the United States. Reso lutions were passed callicg upon the Na tional Government and the various States and Territories to make appropriations for a fund to erect a suitable National monu ment commemorative of the framing and adopting of the Constitution of the United States to be erected within the City of phil adelphis,said monument to bear the names of the signers of the Declarationof independr ence in their autograph, and of the framers of the constitution. It was also resolved to invite all the States and territories to co-op erate with New York In celebrating the cen tennial of Washington's inauguration. Those present were Governors Beaver (Pennsylvania), Sawyer (New Hampshire), Davis (Rhode Island), Briggs (Delaware), Green (New Jersey), and Jackson (Mary land); Lieutenant Goveruora Jones (New York), and Howard (Conneticut). iev. Thomas A. Hoyt, D. D., (Georgia), Major Charles S. Stringfellow, (V.irglnia), Julius N. Carr, (North OCarolina), and ex-Secietary of State J. A. Lipscomb (South Carolina). Another Fatal Duel. JACKSON, MIss., May 1.-General Wirt Adams, pos master of this place, and John Martin editor of the New Mississippian, this afternoon rfught a street duel and both men were killed. The General was hit on the head and Martin was hit twice. Accounts of the tradegy are conflicting and it can.ot be said wbh fired the first shot. An article published t is morning in the New Missis sippian w the immediate cause of the tragedy, th ugh the breach has long existed between tbi men. It charged incompetent service in the postoflice for partisan reasons. I A Fine Detective. Los ANGELES, Speclal.-A. J. Lucas, the head of a pr~minent detective firm, has been arrested oni a confession made by Wm. Elton, in jail for burglary. Evidence has been found going to show that Lucas, who, on ac count of his business, had access to store businesses, etc., really employed his men in their guise as guardians of the peace to act as burglars, they handing over the stolen property to Lucas. It is now thought very many of the burglaries that have been so frequent of late are due to Lucas' schemes. rhe History of the Flags. NEW YOBK, April 27. - [Special to Trib une-Copyright, 1888, by the California As sociated Press.]--Schuyler Hamilton, the historian, makes a unique offer. He says: "I will bet that no Irishman can give me the history iof the so called Flag of Ireland,' one hundred dollars against five dollars. I will further bet one hundred dollars against five dollars that no member of the Legislature can go through a critical examination as to the rise and progress of our American flag, such as the Civil Service Commissioners ut-ld put him through, provided Ie will swear he has not in advance studied by history." GER,1ANY'S PRIDE The Young Man Destined to Rule The Fatherland. 80METIIING ABOUT BOULANGER.

All Europe hasan intensely practical inter est. and the rest of mankind a natural curios lty concerning William, the son ofEmperor Frederick. who must soon be emperor of Uerimany The purveyors of information have told us much, and the net result is to give us a very unpleasant impression of the young man. That he was deformed from. birth, having a withered arm and shapeless hand. that he is very sensitive about his de VICTORIA -WILLIAM. fortnity and easily insulted, that he has a nerotul.uLL- afefetion in one ear, and that his general syste. is abnormal, are bad enough, but not jiat su!jects of reproach.

Iti learn to do without hereditary m.omanl'is they must take the evil with the go.d It there is any good. And William "camie honestly by" his peculiarities, most of thenm being of the kind which miss one generation and take effect on the next. He "'takes Irek." as the western people say of that peculiar inheritance which scientists call atavism. His grandmother Augusta was a graanddaughter of Maria Paulowna, one of three daughters of "Crazy Paul," the czar who was trampled to death in his palace by a few of his loving subjects Paul was a mass of disease, and, as to his brain, he was in that most unhappy of all states-a little too crazy to be at large and not quite crazy enough to be shut up-and consequently capricious and cruel His daughters were thoroughly scrofulous, and so the younger Hohenzollerna inherit the curse. For cen turies the scrofulous taint has run through monarchical lines, and more than one royal or ducal house has thus become extinct. Frederick William Albert Victor (such is his full name) was born Jan. 27, 1859, and was educated at Cassell and Bonn. He was rather feeble in early life, but by military training has gained strength. In 1881, when but 22 years old, he married the Princess Vic toria of Schleswig-Holstein-Augustenburg, who was born May 3, 1860, and they have four children, born as follows: Frederick William, soon to be crown prince, May 6, 1882, Frederick, July 7, 1883; Adalbert, July 14, 1884; August William, Jan. 29,1887. His wife is rather plain featured, and not at all gracious in demeanor. On the paternal side the family record be gins to be conspicuous with that surly Fred erick who knocked his wife and daughter down with his heavy and knobby cane, beat and imprisoned his son, afterward Fred ertck the Great, and repeatedly threatened him death, and who was so brutally frank and plain spoken that his best qualities ap peter much like other men's worst. His son, the great Frederick, was a little better. He was extremely fond of argument, but as he had a playful habit of collaring and kicking any one who disagreed with him it was, as Voltaire said, "impossible to discuss with a man who had such powerful arguments and wore such heavy boots-" We can under stand, therefore, just what the German per pie mean when they say of the crown prince, "Be is one of the old Hohenzollerns." And yet they like him, because he is a born soldier. HIe speaks with sneering con tempt of English traders, and treats his mother with undisgnised rudeness, she being English. His unfilial conduct was so noto rious before the old Emper.or William's death that the grandfather denounced it in unsparing terms. His father reproached him bitterly for seeking the imperial power while that father lay sick. "You," he said, Uare the only one who appears to be con vinced of my speedy death. And you have dared to speak and toact as if I werealready irretrievably lost. You have given an ex ample of an ambition most merciless and un dignifiedl But thereby you have lost much of the confidence of the court and of the people." The same evening, the report fur ther says, at dinner, when William lifted his glass and said, )I hope for your speedy and complete codvalescence," the father asked: "Do you speak the truthi" The prince was silent and his mother and sisters burst into teamr The present days of grief in Germany have been productive of many impressive cere EMIPRES AGUNSTA'S MOURNINO COURT. monis- none of which exceeded in interest probably the court of mourning (frauer Court instituted by the dowager Empres Augusta shortly after the death of the Emperor William. The cut here given of this extraordinary court is said to be a faith ful representation of the scene, and it will be seen that while the formalities of a court re ception are rigor"usly complied with the dressing is of the most somber character. Gen. Boulanger is the great man of the hour in Paris, for he has appealed to the pco pie and they have eiected him as deputy from Dordogue by 51,498 votes to S5,745 given to IX Clerjouaie, the Conservative Republican. But according to the peculiar system of French representation, he has been voted for in other departments, so his majority is tl0, 000 to 100,000, and he comes back to Paris the conquering hero of the hour. We say "comes back," but it is only in the poihtical sense, for it is another odditybf the French svestm that a man need not live in the die triec he represents; and, ass matter of faet, Boulanger did not even visit the department in which the vote was nearly unanimous for him. Itisjustas if Gen. Grant in 18 had appealed to Illinois, and been elected to con gres by two or three districts. "But 'twas a famous victory." It is taken to mean that the people indorse his former vigorous ad ministration of the war department, and especially his brutally frank statement that he expected an early war with Germany, and intended to be fully prepared for it. For that statement the conservative administra tion put him out and down. Now he is up again. 80,000 people turned out to cheer his passage from the Hotel du Louvre to the chamber of the assembly, and so the timid cabinet oflcers are "all of a tremble;" as they say in Paris The present politics of that mercurial capital are wonderfully like those of Louisi wti i Were from 1870 to s877; they are muycl the'same sort of people a. the (r1fen are in a condition even more unstable. Of course, an ovation in which 80,000 people took part could not end without a fight; but the police authorities had their arrange ments so well made that only a dozen or twenty people were knocked down. A day or two later the students of the Quartier latin made a big demonstration against Boulanger and carried things with a high hand till they reached a market square wheare the butchers set on them, and the general rabble coming to the latter's assist ance, the anti-Boulangistes were soundly and satisfactorily whaled. All this, the reader should understand, turns on the question be tween Radical and Conservative Republicans, the war party of Boulanger and the peace party now in power, with President Sadi Carnot as its head. As the word Boulanger means "baker" the wits of Paris make many passable jokes about the butchers' support of him. Gen. Boulanger visited the United States in 1881 as head of the military embassy rep resenting the French army at the Yorktown centennial, and with him were the most prominent descendants of Lafayette and Rochambeanu, CoL Bosson, the Count de Noailles, Marquis do Lestrode and many others. After the ceremony at Yorktown BOUdLANGER IN IS ROOM. (en. Boulanger announced an intention to visit Canada-"that Canada which remained faithful to the manners and language of the mother country." French diplomats in America represented to him that it would he "incow'e la~ inmp5en t," afttP having assisted at a celebration of a defeat of the English, to go in the character of a French general to visit an English province; but he took the responsibility and was most cordially received. A great banquet was given in his honor at Montreal, presided over by the governor of that province Also a right royal fete on the old battlefield of Wolfe and Montcalm near Quebec. The tact of Gen. Boulanger and the eloquent fitness with which he spoke assured him a "boom" on his return to Paris, and was practically the beginning of his political leadership We present a view of the general in his room at the Hotel du Louvre, copied from a large picture prepared for Le Monde Illus tre, of Paris, by the artist Tiret Boguet. All the halls near his room are crowded daily with would be visitors, not one in ten of whom can secure access to him, and when he appears in public his progress is a continued ovation. His supporters cry "Vive Boulan gerl" and utter untranslatable cries against the "German cabinet" (meaning the cabinet which refuses to be anti-German), while the students yell "Vive la republiquel Down with the dictatorl" and then they fall to breaking each other's heads like good pa triots All this time the more prominent supporters of the two factions are hurling at each other such fierce epithets as make our old war cries of "Copperhead" and "Nigger thief" seem like little pleasantries; and duels are quite numerous French duels are pro verbially safe affairs, except, as Mark Twain tells us, "when the combatants catch cold," but there have been some painful exceptions. Thus Robert de Fanconnet had a rapier Man through his arm the other day, and Count de Kelman received a thrust in the breast which is likely to prove fatal Young Rochefort, son of the Communirt, or Radical, editor, "pinked his man" while fighting in favor of Boulanger. Of course, the popularity of the general, still more his theatrical posing, has offended some of his former allies, and the way they manifest a slight displeasure is shown in this article in La Paris, edited by Charles Laurent: *-I plead guilty of not having known Gen. Bou langer till today. I plead guilty of having been, as 1 fancied, Datrlotically reserved toward him. Yesterday I saw, heard and understood. I.saw a man ent- r the Salle des Seances at the chamber, a man with low forehead, a false look and a forced smile, who at a chosen moment took a high seat and exhibited himself to the whole as. sembly, especially to the public in the galleries, for whom he fiMed his seat. I have seen all this have heard and read all this, and I say one must be blind or an accomplice now not to understand the aim of the man,. who calls himself a patriot , , ., ,i. tb!h , ____ The New Minister to Linersa.

When he was9 years of age he could read and write. At 14 he began to work at the cooper's trade at W ilmington. For three years he continued at this work, 'attending night school as well.

THE KING'S DAUGHTERS. A PICTURESQUE RELIGIOUS ORDER OF THESE TIMES. Any Woman Can Join It for Ten Cents and Unite In the Great Work of Doing Good to Her Fellow Creat ures. Perhaps the most wonderful religious or ganization which has ever sprung up in this country is that of the "King's Daughters." Its members already number about 40,000, and are increasing all the time It is won derful, because it is so simple It contains no long drawn out code of ethics, and its simplest precept is the golden rule. The motto of this order is "In His Name," and it r aanrsthat anyhintmbefsil letkzn aindm to her fellow creaturte when necessary. The idea was in a measure suggested by Edward Everett Hale in his book "Ten Times One is Ten." The book also contal.ed these mottoes, which he gave to the world: Look up and not down; Look forward and not back; Look out and not In, and land a hand The society of "The King's Daugh ters" was first started in New York in 1886 by Mrs Bottoma Ten ladies met to consider how they could give more help for good by uniting together than by each trying to work separately. They adopted the 10x1--10 idea, and called their band "The King's H N Daughters." They chose for their hadge a little pur pie ribbon, to be worn either with or without th.a. azo, sIo'snAuoa S waltese cross, and E adopted the lend a hand mottoes printed above. Their watchword was "In His Name." Each branch of the society (chapter) consists of at least ten members, and the general sotiety includes all branches. Anything, however small or simple, that helps another human being to be better or happier is proper work for "The King's Daughters," and every branch may therefore be left to choose its special work, according to location and cir cumstances. Each ten may organize and elect officers, though this is not essential in so small a body. There is nothing of a secret society character about the organization, but not even the Masonic sign meets a readier recognition than the tiny silver Maltese cross with the initials L H. N. or the significant bit of purple ribbon in the button hole wins for its wearer. The significance of wearing this cross is that its owner has adopted the motto into her daily life; that "In His Name" she is willing to serve any other woman, stranger or friend, wherever, whenever and however she may; that she recognizes practically her sisterhood with all other women; that any reasonable request made her "In His Name" will be readily granted. Mrs. Bottome is the president of the cen tral council; Mrs. M. L. Dickinson, of 230 West Fifty-ninth street, New York, is the secretary, and to her all applications for the establishment of chapters should be ad dressed. The fee of membership is only ten cents, thus bringing it within the means of the poor, though not limiting the contribu tions of the rich. Perhaps the objects of the order are best stated by Mrs. Dickinson in HINTS AND HELPS POR THE ORDER. THI KINe's DAUOHTERS Each branch consists of at least ten members The general society includes all branches. Any woman may form a branch by uniting nine other women with herself for joint effort in doing good. Each branch may choose its special work. Any thing, however small or simple, that helps an other human being to be better or happier is proper work for the Daughters of the King. There should be frequent meetings of each ten, at such intervals as they may choose. Such meetings should open with a passage of Scripture or a hymn and prayer. Repor:s should be given of the good accomplished, and plans for future work discussed. Whatever special work may be done, all branches have the common work of increasing the number of tens. Every member of a ten may form anynumbd of tens. One may be the King's Daughter and unite with no ten. On the other hand, tens may be formed without adopting the order's chosen name. Each ten mayorganiseand elect officers, but in so small a body it is not essential. The one who forms a ten should keep a list of members and lines of work, and such interesting features and incidents as mark the growth and purposes of the branch. It is contrary to thespiritof so elastic an organ sation to define the routine of what each ten shall be and do. These points each must settle in accordance with Its own conditions The same suggestions would not be helpful to all branches, and any question that may arise in the practical working of a branch may be addressed to the secretary. The secretary, Mrs. Dickinson, receives and files the vast number of letters whieh come in the shape of inquiries and reports, and an attempt is being made to organizethe society into state associations and chapters and to prepare from these letters some classi fied report of the work accomplished. These plans are not yet perfected, but as soon as they are they will be given to the order and explained by those authorized to those wish ing to join the order. The Legion is another society which has grown out of the King's Daughters,. and embodies the same idea The two ordersare, however, somewhat differentin their manner of work. INDIANA DEMOCRATS. They Name (. C. Matson for Governor sad W. 3. Myers for Lieut. Governor. Courtland C. Matson, nominated for gov ernor by the Democrats of Indiana, is a na tive of that state He was born in 1841 in Franklin county, a county that has furnished a number of prominent men, among them be ing Gen. Lew Wallace, author of "Ben Hur," and Captain Eads, of jetty tame. His father, Hon. John A. Matson, was once the Whig nominee for governor of Indiana. Col Matson attended Asbury (now De Pauw) uni versity at Greencastle, where he graduated with honor. He early entered the Union army in the war of the rebellion as a private soldier, and fought his way up to a colonelcy. He took part in several of the mostnimportant battles of the war. On his return from the army he studied law, and soon rose - _ to a very promi. nent position at the bar, being elected prosecuting attor ney several times. SAs a Democrat, he early took part in C. c. n rsoN all political mat ters, and, possess ing very agreeable manners, he was neces sarily personally popular. In 1880 he was nominated for congress, his opponent being the candidate of the Republicans and Greenbackers. He defeated the combination by a handsome majority. He was re-elected to each of the succeeding sessions. In con gress he has always taken a leading place in his party, and for some time has been chair man of the house committeaon invalid pen sions. He has devoted a great deal of his time in congress to pension matters, and has made himself popular with the soldiers, especially in his district On the stump he is a fluent speaker and is counted as one of the best his party has In his last race for con gress he had a split in his own party to meet as well as a most popular Republican candi date. The result was one of the hottest political campaigns ever fought in the dis trict. He outgeneraled hisenemies and wasre elected, but by a reduced majority. He has a dignified and courtly address, and his man ners are winning. He has few personal enemies, even amonr those onaowl to him in politics. He is well equipped in all the arts that go to make up a successful politician. Capt. W. RIL Myers. named for lieuten ant governor, is of Ohio birth, but has lived all his manhood life in Indi ana:_ He received a common school edu cation and chose the law for a profession. Soon after the breaking out of the war he entered the army and was pro moted to the cap taincy of his com pany. Up to 187'2 he was a Republi can in politics, but that year cast in his fortunes with the Democracy un der the leadership of Mr. Greeley. He. peon took .a among his new party associates, and in 1878 was elected to the Forty-sixth congress, de feating Gen. William Grose. Two yearm later he was defeated for re-election by the late Godlove S.Orth. In 1882 he was the nominee of his party for secretary of state, andwas elected by a large majority, and was re-elected in 1884. He served four years as secretary of state, and in 1886 was promi nently spoken of for the nomination for congress in the Indianapolis district, but de clined to let his name go before the conven tion. He has a magnificent physique, stand ing something over six feet in height and weighing over00 pounds. His head is large and his broad face is nearly always wreathed in a pleasant smile. In politics he is what is termed a "mixer," and is on good terms per sonally with every man he meets. He has never held any public offices except that of congressnuo for one term and secretary of state four years. but' he has an extensive ac quaintance, especially among the politicians. He is the owner and editor of the Democratic organ of Madison county. and is regarded as a vigorous political writer. His own county is strongly Democratic, and much of its steadfastness to the party faith is said to be due to his skill as a politician and to his per sonal efforts among the voters A CHINESE METHODIST. SIs Sek Otng Now in Attendance on the M. E. Conference. A prominent and interesting figure in the general conference of the Methodist Episco pal church, which is now being held in New York, is the delegate from China, Sia Sek Ong. He is the presiding elder of the church in that country. His history is a remarkable one. Born in an ancestral house, nine miles from the city of Foochow, he was taught at an early age to read diligently the Confucian books. For ten years he continued this schooling, and, being naturally of an intro spective disposition, the spiritual side of his nature rapidly developed. When he was 16 years old his mother suddenly died. His father's burdens were growing heavier and heavier, his brothers and his sister were too small to take care of themselves, and so he resolved to teach school in order to increase the family income. It was while engaged in this pursuit that he first heard of those who believed in Jesus. They were called Hong Kaw, i. e., adherents of doctrine. One day while on a visit to a friend's school he met a Christian. His interest was excited by the talk that ensued; his heart was ready to believe, but his intellect rebelled.: Then followed a long period of introspective thought. A year passed by. One day he heard an eloquent missionary preacher. Sla Sek Ong was deeply affected. But it was not until the death of his first born child that he finally became a Christian. His friends and relatives gathered round and endeavored to persuade him to worship idols in behalf of the child, but he stood firm. When the child died reproaches were heaped upon him for doubting the power and efficacy of the idols. From that day he believed. 7 f~P SIA SEK ONG. In the spring of 1806 he was received into the church. He was still a school teacher, and the knowledge that he had adopted Christianity proved very detrimental' to his interests. He became the object of endless persecutions. His own family became his bitterest enemies. His neighbors threatened to confiscate his property and turn him from his home. Yet all this time he continued to preach the doctrines of Christianity whenever he found an oppor tunity. In the autumn of 1860 he was ap pointed to the Hok-chiang circuit. In 1869 he was ordained by Bishop Kingsley, and sent out to travel the Hok-chiang district. While engaged in performing this duty his life was endangered several times. In the city of Hok-chiang an old man came to the chapel with a knife hid in his sleeve with the avowed intention of killing him. Sia Sek Ong received him so kindly, however, that he could not summon up courage to carry out his purpose. A year afterward the evangelist entered upon a work which after many trials and discouragements led to the greatest triumph of his lifa It had been his ambition for some time to make the church in China self supporting. He now resolved to take the initiative step. He withdrew from the Chinese mission's pay list and be gan to lead the church members to support their preachers. In the spring of IS70 he was appointed to hold the quarterly meeting at Kengkiang. The season was rainy. It isdifllcult tocon ceive of the poverty and misery of the little congregation. The chapel was very small, had a wet mud floor, and no ventilation ex cept such as the door afforded. Yet even this dismal place was preferable to the wretched houses that served as homres for the church members. Consequently they gathered to gether in the chapel to smoke and chat. It was in this place that Sia Sek Ong says bIe had a vision akin to that which came to Saul of Tarsus Since 1870 he has persevered in his labors without the aid of a foreign dollar. U1e has proved that the missionary churches abroad can be made self supporting, and may have many interesting things to say upon the sub ject at the present conference. Sia Sek Ong is a man of gentle manners, spiritual mind and dignified bearing. His conversation is subdued and simple, but when speaking be fore an assemblage he bursts forth into noble flights of oratory. Among Methodists he is considered the greatest of Chinese orators. But listen to his own estimate of himself: "1 think of myself as a manikin, a mere image of wood which moves only by the power of a living hbahL" Itussia's Imperial Crown. The imperial crown of all the Russias is the finest ever worn by a sovereign. It is in the form of a bishop's miter, and carries -on its crest a cross composed of five of the most beautiful diamonds ever cut supporting the largest ruby in the world. Eleven great dia monds in a foliated arch rising from the front and back of the crown support this cross and ruby, and on either side is a hoop of thirty-eight pearls, than which there are no handsomer known.--New York Evening World.

Conversation in Public Placs. Look for a moment at conversation as we overhear it on the street, the horse and steam ears. Here we find ourselves involubtarily . deciding who are those best acquainted with the laws of polite society and good breeding. Setting aside the cause of deafness, we are often annoyed at the persistency with which people in near proximity to ourselves en deavor, in conversation with their friends, to enlighten all the others as to their private affairs, business, poverty or wealth, friends, servants, and what not. This is due partly to home education in the matter of conver sation, and partly to the largely increasing numbers of those who have acquired wealth suddenly and have had no advantages of early education and culture, and who forget that fine feathers do not always make fine birds.-Ellen Bliss Hooker in Good House keeping.
