TOPICS OF THE DAY.
Tite British have about finished up
ono war thnt of tlio Kiel HelMdlhm In
Northwest Territory.
Kiel, as a revolutionist, was not ft
nieces. Ho niado a great dual of
trouble for the Canadian authorities,
but is now a badly-scared man.
Tuf.kb is an unoay finding in Europe
that tlie present Anglo-Russian peace is
only an armistice, and that tho arbitra
tion proceedings are the merest
"mockery.
Tiik Princess Beatrice ly potting mar
ried will pot $150,000. It is not snr
j'rising in view of tho dowry custom
that marriage in the royal family is tlio
most popular ins'itution in England.
TnE New York Legislature passed a
liill restricting tho height of buildings.
But there is nothing to regulate the
depth of cellars, and house may le
built toward Uie center of the earth as
far as Uie owners may pIcaNO to plant
them.
A ritoi-osmoN will bo introduced
Into Congress next winter to establish n
penny letter postage. There will be t lie
Fame objections to it that have been
made to every proiHisod reduction in the
rate of carrying letters. Every reduc
tion thus far has resulted in an in
creased revenue to tho department.
The dispute between Russia and Great
Britain respecting the Afghan boundary
Is helping to build railroads in Asia.
The line from the Caspian will now soon
be completed to Pandjeh, and then Eng
land will be forced to run several lines
north to Afghanistan to prepare for the
inevitable conflict that must take place
norue time in tho latter country.
Amono tle recent inventions is one
that threatens to supersede the enure
telegraph, system. It is an instrument
that can be worked like a type-writer.
It dispenses with sound in transmitting
telegraphic communications, and multi
plies indefinitely the power of a wire to
convey messages between dilTereut
points.
Tur.UE has been great activity In
cannon-making all over tho world
recently. A monster cannon is being
made at the foundry of Cail ut Crenelle.
It is to be forty-two feet long, and will
nend a bomb of 1,700 pounds a distance
of some nine miles. Its price will lie
$100,000, and it will bo exhibited at the
Exhibition of Antwerp.
It is estimated that there are over one
hundred and twenty-live thousand trees
on the streets and in the public parks of
Washington, and that, if tlio sixt3'-five
thousand trees in tho streets were
planted in a straight line, would form a
row one hundred and fifty miles long.
There is not a city in the world that hits
as many shade trees in proportion to Its
population as Washington.
It is the last third of a century that
has seen the greatest development in tho
railway systems of Uie world. In 18-00
the local length of railways in this
rountry was only aliout 9,000 miles. At
tiro clone of bust year wo had 125,600
miles of raiL The total mileage of tho
world at the end of 1883 was 2G'.),231
miles, of which over forty-five per cent.
Was laid in five United States.
Sitnatoh McPliF.it.sox, of New Jersey,
carries a life insurance of $110,000. Ex
Congressman Frank Jones, of New
Hampshire, who was talked of for tho
cabinet, carries $200,000. Senator
Soljin has an insurance of $50,000. Ex
Post roaster General Ilatton has !?'J5,0 0.
Bon Butler is insured for probably
$100,000. Generals Sherman and Sheri
dan are insured for pretty good sums.
Amu all war, while it is an un
doubted evil, is a great instructor in
geography. Who, for instance, among
even well-informed jK-ople, could have
told on April 1, with any degree of ex
actness, where Herat or Canduhar was?
Some of them might have made a guess,
and said that tho Cities were some
where near Persia, but anything like ex
act knowledge not one man in a thou
tiaud would ever have professed.
Trie mere pnsect of war alters for
the better business interest.-. War is
wasts its work is destruction; its object
isto kill, maim and impoverish, yet tho
news that blood had btsm shed in Cen
tral Asia led to a revival of industry in
tho United State.. Slocks became
"buoyant, the grain and provision mar
ket excited, and stimulus was given to
every department of trade.
TnE stuvess that has attended the
government carriage of letters suid
papers, as well as tho cheapness of its
telegraphic service, h:is led some social
and political reformers to think that the
name agency might bo utilized for other
beneficent purposes, such as postal
banks, life and tire insurance. In Great
Britain there are in sueees.-ful operation
government xsta banks in which the
poor are guaranteed the absolute safety
of their surplus earnings and a low rate,
hut sunt rate, of intercut.
Not less than 10O,0(X),(MK) of issiple
to-day recognize tlio authority of tho
Cz.ar of all tho Russian. The popula
tion of Germany is only -10,000,000, and
erf Austria tilsuit ;O,0Ml,rKI0. Russia

after all it is only .'50,000,000 in the Brit
Lsh Inhi that can bo depended upon to

lluttiuu troopa toward JLudia.

Fourteen Persons Meet Terrible Deaths
At a Fire in Cincinnati.
Cincinnati, May 21. At hnlf-r"t one
this afternoon, a lxiy In Sullivan ft Co. '8
Printing Kstiililishtnent on Sixth street was
carrying a bucket of tienzino up the third
flight of stairs; . benzine exploded, and
In nil incredible short time the entire stair
way was one mass of flames, thus cutting
off the escnpo of the seventeen (jlrls at
work In the bindery on the fifth floor nnd
the printers on the fourth Moor. The girls
In tho bindery rushed, lint for the stnirwny,
but tho front windows of tho building fully
sixty feet from the ground.
To jump meant to tie dashed to pieces on
tho pavement ; to remain meant Uie most
horrilile of fnte, that of bring burnol to
dentil. They stood at the open windows
wringing their hands and Imploringly call
ing on those below to ansist them. Hut
their cries were of uo avnil, ns those Ik)ow
hail not tlio menus at hand to assist those
who were in the very jaws of death. Lizzie.
Meyer was the first to appear nt tho
window. Tho crowd below grated her
with nn encnurnging shout, hut
was unntilo to lend nny assist
ance. After a moment of hesitation,
during which she was screened from view
by thick smoke, she determined to make
the tan p. With dilliculty she drew herself
up on the w indow-sill and let go. She
started down fis t foremost, but in the
rapid descent Inst her ImJ.-ince and struck
the pnvement on her shoulder nnd head.
Tho crowd drew back In horror nt the dis
tressing siht, and stod nghsst
ns a large middle-aged wouinn
npiqircd ut a window to niiiko the
jump. Tho crow yelled to her to
wnit for a rope, hut she was too much
frightened to understand, nnd in n sis-ond
she wns shotting through tho air, only to
lie nlmost unrecognizably mangled on the
bricks below. This was Mrs. Ann Hell,
who expired on the way to tlio hospital.
Almost every hone in her body was bioken.
At this juncture two men appeared on the
roof of the burning building with
B rope, which they lowered to
the windows liolow, where young
Sullivan wns endeavoring to restrain Josio
Hawks nnd Kiniiia 1'inchhnck from jump
ing. As the rope descended it came within
easy reach of him, but ho spurned to use
it when two weak girls were ot lined.
He accordingly swung tho rope into
tlio hands of Miss Hawks, who clasped
it, and was being lowered by the men
on the roof above. As she was pass
ing tho windows of the third floor, how
ever, a tongue of flame shot out, nnd,
striking her in the face, caused her to re
lease her hold. Her tall was broken by a
colored ninn, who rushed undo' tlio falling
girl, stretching out his arms, thus saving
her life. Both rescued nnil rescuer were
considerably bruised, but not fatally in
jured. As soon ns tho rope was frw-d it
wns swung into tho hands of the brave
Sullivan, nnd again ho gave up his chance
of life nnd placed the ropo in tho hands of
Emma l'inchliack, although the flames
wero growing hotter nlxmt him all the
while. She descended safely. Again the rope
was drawn up, and this timo it was believ
ed that Sullivan, whoso bravo acts had ex
cited the admiration of tiio masses below,
would succeed in freeing himself from tho
perilous position in which he had, for the
benefit of others, placed himself. Thoroe
was successfully swung into his hands, and
he started on tho descent amid the em our
aging cheers of tho multitude. The ropo,
however, w hich had aided in rescuing the
girls had become weak through its contact
with the flames, and was not suf
ficiently strong to U'ar the young
man's weight. As he reached tho windows
of the third story tho strands parted, nnd
his liody shot downward with terrific ve
locity. His limlis were broken in several
places, and only lived an hour. By this
time a tarpaulin was spread In-neatii tho
fiery windows and Nannie Shejiperd jump
ed to it and wns saved. Win. Bishop,
printer, hung from tho window sill of the
liftu story for fully teu minutes, until the
firemen erected a ladder and rescued him.
His arms and face were budly
burned. Ho will recover. Iu
a short. time nfter tho arrival
of the fire department the flames wero ex
tinguished. (In the firemen and police
ascending to tlio fifth story a horrible sight
met their gaze. Lying on the floor were
the remains of eleven girhi who, half
smothered, half burned, had I met their
deaths with scarcely a minute's warning.

THE REVISED BIBLE.
The Work Now Ready for Shipment.
Renderings that are Declared to be Incorrect.
-Changes Made that are Regarded
as Improvment.
Kuw York, May 2. Copies of tho new
translation of the t)ld Testament were
mailed to-night, and to-morrow shipment.
to all parts of tho country will liegin.
There nro many renderings (bclared to be
incorrect by ail lexicons and commentaries
of a critical character. For example, the
word hypocrite is found eight times in the
Hook of Job, yet iu not one of them does
tho original term hnve that meaning.
So one of the oblations mentioned often in
the l'entnteuch and elsewhere is called a
"meat offering," which loads tho reader to
suppose that It is an animal sacrifice,
W'hereas the Hebrow menus an unbloody
oblation, and Is correctly rendered "meal
otTering." In tho following list the incor
rect word is placed first, with a reference
to one of the places where it occurs, and
then the true moaning ns generally accept

A Swimming Jumps From the
Brooklyn Bridge-Loses His Balance
and Falls Flat On the Water.
Nkw York, May 10. Prof, ltobt, F.. Od
ium, a Washington swlmiiiing-niast"r,
jumpo.1 from the Brooklyn bridge into the
East Uiver, this afternoon, and wns killed
by tho concussion. The Li .dge autlioritie
took every precaution to prevent the fool
ish act, hut was outwitted by the Professor
by sending a dummy before Mm, nnd whilo
the attention of tho police was ottractsl
by this ruse, Odium was driven upon the
bridge, and leaping from tho vehicle
mounted the railing. He signaled to Cnpt.
Uoyton and friends in a tug liont in the
river liolow. Placing his hands by his side
and pressing his b et together he slid off,
and went shooting down l.'l'i feet to the wa
ter. When about half the distnneo, for
somo unexplained reason, ho lost his bal
ance, which ho could not regain. He
whirled round in the air, and struck tho
water flat on his left side, disappearing be
neath the Surface and a high wave thnt
spurted twenty feet high. When Boyton
saw tho body turn he threw
oft his rout and vest nnd
jumped into the water. He struck
out vigorously for the place where Prof.
Odium disappeared, and waited for him to
come to the surface again. The body came
up quickly, nnd tho Captain grasped it.
"Bob, how do you feelr How t are you!"'
ho shouted to tho dying mnn. The lij
moved feeljy, ns if in nn attempt to speak,
and a few drops of blood trickled out of the
sides of his mouth. The Captain knew
that death was near, nnd shouted for help.
A passing fishing schooner lowered its life
liont and took Bcivton and his unfortunate
componlon nbonrd. The tug afterward
drew up alongside, and they were trans
ferred to it. A start wns then made for
tho shore. There wns not a sign of life in
l'rof. Odium w hen he was laid in one of
the bertlu on the propeller. Tho little
stream of blood still oozed from between
his lips, and his fne wns ns still nnd palo
ns death. A thin, dark blue lino on his
left side aliout twenty inches long, and al
most perfectly straight, showed where he
had struck tho water. It was the only
mark on his body. Captain Boyton ap
plied restoratives and tried to got some
recognition from him. After about
ten minutes the eyes opened, and as
tho dying mnn recognized Boyton, ho tried
to smile and said : "Well, what kind of a
jump did I make?" Ho wns assured that
it wns a perfect one, nnd ho answered
feebly: "It's all right. Cap., it's nil right."
Those wore his Inst words. Before the tug
touched tho shore, ot 0:1.1, ho was
dead. His ribs wero crushed in, his
body wns black nnd blno, blood
wns spurting from the burst veins
nnd arteries iu his sido and legs,
and his skiu wns swollen into lumps where
the blood was striving to break out. Those
who timed Odium's descent ns it wns
ivntch(vl from the tug-loat, sny that just
four nn one-half seconds elapsed from the
tinie he slid from the railing until ho struck
tho water.

Jrrnnd, had on bonrd tho crews of tho bark
Bnvard, Captain Anderson, from Hrobnk
fnr Metis, ami of the steamer Mary Louisa,
of Now Costln, Captain OretT, from New

the Bayard, states that he left Droliak
April 4 forordors to Metis. Tho vessel mot
with vsriabte weather until midnight
of tho fith of May, when, with the
weather thick nnd foggy, and very dnrk,
she ran into ice near the banks of New
foundland. The voskoI was completely
surrounded ly heavy ice and icetKrgs.
The crew remained on board the veesri
until Tuesday afternoon, when the Icelx-rgs
enme thnmpinc; agninst the liark, complete
ly surrounding her, ami srefcshing in hor
port side. They then took to the bonta,
nnd went on the ice, barely escaping with
their lives, and saving nothing whatever.
They rcuaineLUime days aud thro nights
on the ice. They tell a tale of great hard
ship and suffering. All the rtothing they had
wns on thoir Imrks, and, this Incoming
wot, added to thoir misery. The men,
however, liore up nobly, iielng encouraged
by the heartiness of Optnin Anderson.
Thoy came out of the ice at 2 a. m., Sun
day. They took to tne lot, and pulled
westward in a thick fog. After pulling for
aliout two hours they henrd a steamer's

the Cuptain stated thnt they hnd struck on
the ice some timo tiefore, nnd the vessel was
then leaking badly. Captain Anderson had
boon alsuird just an hour when the Mary
Louisa tiegaii to sink. Both crews, num
bering thirty-five persons, left the steamer
in three lioats, and proceeded west again.
They were picked up by tho Brilliant, after
having scut flvo.duys among icebergs in
niid-ocenu.
The White Flag.
St. Paul, Minn., May 22. A Battleford
dispatch of May 21 says: "At sunset to
night Father Cochin aud twenty-five other
prisoners, bearing a white Hag, arrived
from I'oundmaker's camp, with a letter
asking upon what terms surrender would
be accepted. He wants a reply in two
days. He also sent messengers with simi
lar letters to General Middleton. This
action wns caused by the arrival of four
half-breeds, who reported the capture
of Kiel. The news created conster
nation in the Indian camp, braves
hiding their rifles and removing
their war pqhit. A council was held, and
the result was a decision to send iu the
priest nnd prisoners. It seems Pouud
mukor was on his way to join Kiel w hen
he met tho half-breed scout. The letter
was written at I'oundmaker's dirtution by
Jefferson, school-master on tho reserve.
The prisoners sent iu with Father Cochin
include the twenty teamsters, captured
iu the Eagle Hills; Fontaine, the cap
tured scout; Bremuer and Sayers, of
Bresaylor's sottlement, and two
women in ninlo apparel. Twenty-one
women aud children from Bresnylor's set
tlement are held as hostages. The team
sters say they were well treated by the
half-breeds, who protected them with
leveled rifles from Indians who were
threatening to kill them. Father Cochin
returns to-morrow with a letter from
Colonel Otter, slating that Poundmaker
must negotiate with General Middleton,
nnd meanwhile hostilities must cease.
Middleton is reported to-day as bavin?
reached Prince Albert on the 10th inst.

which has been applied to our drinking

INTRODUCTIONS.
The "Best People" at the Hub Setting
Their Faces Against the Custom.
Our "liest people" are setting tho ban
of their displeasure against the custom
of introducing pisiplo to other people.
The social lines, including guests who
limy be introduced to other guests, are
very tightly drawn, and an invitation to
people in good society to visit thoiu
does not by any means involve lUa
jrrobabiHty of your Incoming knovrn
to the other guests. This is not taken
to mean that you are not at liberty o
'scrujm aoquainUinee" with auv of tha
lordly gtMuAd if yon choose to make the
al'-rnjrt, but simply that the hostess
considers it no part of her duty to im
p's your acquaintanceship upon hrr
other friends. There are some obi
families bore, the bearers of pie-revolutionary
names and pedigrees, who carry
the nliHiird new notion to a ridiculods
extreme. Many of these families airu
as ssir na church mice, and hiwe if:
little trouble U scrape along in thei"1
ahabby gentility, but tlio way they hold
up thetr Hernial superiority is something
truly agottisiig. I hoard a bright and
cultivated young lady tolling of her
