CHARLESTON IIOKItOlt. San Francisco Disaster Recalls Vividly to Mind Earthquake Which Laid Southern City Low. The San Francisco horror recalls vividly to mind the Charleston earth quake which occurred on the night of Aug. 31, 1886. Thirty-three persons were killed outright in Charleston, and over 100, many of whom died later, were injured. Hundreds of houses were shaken down and the city was almost wrecked. No section es caped. Big business buildings were destroyed as quickly and as effectu ally as the lowliest cottage. The prop erty loss was over $3,000,000. The shock which did the most dam age at Charleston came at 9:50 p. m., without the slightest warning. Build ings suddenly began to sway, and a moment later walls toppled. Huge structures sank to the ground and be came piles of brick and mortar which sent up stifling clouds of dust. A newspaper man in the office of the Charleston News and Courier told the following story of the disaster: "At the time of the first shock the writer's attention was vaguely attract ed by a sound which seemed to come from the office below and which wa6 supposed for a moment to be caused by the rapid rolling of a heavy body, as an iron safe or heavily laden truck over the floor. Accompanying the sound there was a perceptible tremor of the building, not more marked, however, than would be caused by the passage of a street car or dray along the street For perhaps two or three seconds the occurrence excited no sur prise of comment, then by swift de grees, or perhaps all at once, the sound deepened in volume, the tremor became more decided, the ear caught the rattle of the window sash, gas fixtures and other loose objects. The men in the office glanced hurriedly at each other and sprang to the feet. And theu all was bewilderment and confusion. "A sudden rush was simultaneously made to endeavor to attain the open air and flee to a place of safety, but before the door was reached all reeled together with the tottering wall and stopped with the feeling that hope was in vain. "The uproar slowly died away in the seeming distance, tne earth was still, and, oh, the blessed relief of that stillness. But how rudely the silence was broken. On every side arose shrieks and cries of pain and fear. The prayers and waitings of terrified women and children commingled with the hoarse shouts of excited men in the street. The air was filled to the height of the house with a whitish cloud of dry, stifling dust. Through this cloud, dense as a fog, the gas lights flickered dimly, shedding but little light so that you stumbled .it every step over piles of brick and became entangled in lines of tele graph wires that depended from brok en supports. On every side were hur rying forms of men and women, bare headed, partially dressed, some al most nude. "Until long after midnight the /P, I £6# streets were filled with fugitives in sight of their homes. Through long hours that followed, few were the eyes, even of children, that were clos ed in sleep. Charleston was full of those who watched for morning and never In any city in any land, did the first gray shades that marked the ap proach of dawn appear so beautiful and welcome to the eye as they ap peared this morning to thousands of people who hailed them from the midst of the countless wrecked homes." TRIALS Of UMPIRES. Same Old Abuse Heaped on Them by Players and Cans. It has often been said that the task of umpiring professional baseball games is a thankless one and that only a man of iron nerve can stand the constant strain caused by the abuse heaped on him by the players and the more unsportsmanlike patrons of the game, says the New York Sun. Some of those unfortunate individuals have been driven into retirement, suffering from shattered nerves and broken hearts, but there are a few. now in retirement, who look back with some pleasure to their experiences with the indicator. The average ball player is loath to admit that there is really a first-class umpire in the profession. At some time or another the best judges of play make errors In their rulings whicli cause narrow minded players to be their lifelong enemies. .There are men who have withdrawn from active baseball playing who persistently de clare that they never got a square deal from an umpire and who cannot be convinced that the handlers of the ball and strike indicator were men on the level. Yet in the history of baseball no umpire has ever been charged with dishonesty although many have been accused of incompetency. "Honest John" Kelly, now a sport ing man of this city, who refereed several glove fights, including the Cor bett-Mitchell and the Corbett-Sharkey affairs, was probably one of the best umpires that ever worked for the Na tional league. Kelly, a six-footer and a man of cold nerve, was a czar on the ball field. He was quick witted, keen eyed and determined to suppress the rowdies. His word was law, and he commanded general respect. But there was just one incident in his career that he will probably never for get, that was a run in with Dude Esterbrook which was short and sweet. Kelly called Esterbrook down one day, and the latter showed fight. Kelly had a reputation as a rough and tumble artist, and when he agreed to meet Esterbrook in the dressing room after the game the players expected to see the Dude quickly done up. But the moment Kelly put up his hands Ester brook began to put the punches all over him, and he kept it up until "Honest John" cried enough. John Gaffney was another star um pire in his day. He was a king, among the players and ruled them with a rod of iron. But toward the close of his career his habits were not exactly good, and he lost his grip, until one day in Harlem Pat Tabeau defied him and so grossly insulted him that Gaffney left the field in tears, with policemen all around him. Bob Ferguson also was a competent judge of play in the old days. Al ways firm in his decisions, he stood no nonsense and was popular even with the most exacting fans. When Tom Lynch, an artist in his line, first be came a National League umpire he was generally ridiculed because of his method of calling out deci sions. He was also dubbed 'the Pot man," for the reason lhat he persist ed in wearing a uniform of gray Ladies' and Men's Garments Gleaned Spring is here and you no doubt have a suit, overcoat, or a Ladies' dress you want put in proper shape for spring.

BEEGHER, fcsad rxfa, R. B. flannel, with a cap that had a straight leather visor. Lynch soon convinced the players that he was master of the situation. He absolutely refused to indulge in arguments and 'quickly pun ished kickers either with fines or ex pulsion from the game. It did not take long to become the best umpire in the bustness, and though an auto crat of the diamond he enjoyed the confidence of the public and a majority of the players. Lynch resigned from the league staff in 1S95, however. He declared that the New York club had tried to In timidate him. He-finded Doyle and Davis $100 each for disorderly con duct at the Polo grounds and was quickly called to account by Andrew Freedman. Because of this interfer ence with his authority Lynch got out of the game and devoted his time to a theater he owned in Connecticut. Still he was induced to return to duty after a while and continued to do excellent work until he decided to retire permanently. Robert Emsiie, once a crack pitcher, and Hank O'Day, who twirled for the Brotherhood team in this city in 1890, are the best known umpires on the National league staff nowadays, Emsiie has been on the job for nearly fifteen years, if not longer, and has worn well with the public. He is fair mind ed. even tempered, but firm, although he had more trouble last year with the kickers than ever before. O'Day is cool, deliberate and level headed. He is more inclined to argue with the players than is Emsiie, but he does not waste much time in putting on the fines when a rowdy oversteps the bounds of propriety. In the American league Jack Sheridan is the star. In fact, many ex perts say he knows baseball, is not easily ruffed, and deals with the play ers in no. mild, manner when they deserve rebukes. Silk O'Loughlin is another splendid judge of play, and so is the witty Tim Hurst, who prob ably never allowed a fresh player to get away with a call-down without receiving a caustic reply. These men stand the wear and tear year in and year out, and appear to thrive on it. But countless persons have failed in the most ignominious way. It was not many years ago that a New York nftn applied to President X. E. Young for a position on the National league staff. He was a hand some fellow, well dressed, and so in telligent that Young wondered«why he wanted to be an umpire. The man seemed to be possessed of a mama tp show his authority on the field, and he came so highly recommended that the president of the league finally decided to let him have a chance. "It is a simple matter, this umpiring business," said the new judge of play to a number of local baseball men be fore the season opened. All you have to do is to say "Out," 'Safe,' 'Ball,' 'Strike,' and that settles it. Why, I can lick any of these players who make a practice of baiting the umpire, and you bet 1 will call any of them as quick as a flash!" When the new umpire made his debut he was assigned to Cleveland. He appeared on the field with a suit that had been made for him by a Broadway tailor, and he looked so natty that the players grinned. He called a Cleveland player out at first base on a close play and was instantly surrounded by Tebeau and his rowdies, who threatened to punch his head off. He fined them all, and the kick end ed. But there was more trouble in store for him, and when the game end ed he was chased across the field by an angry mob. When he reached the dressing room he found that his street clothes had been (thrown over the fence, so that he had to put them on in a nearby saloon, while the police finally escorted him to his hotel. That night the new umpire wired his resignation to Young and came on to this city. He went to an insane asylum last year. Tim Keefe, who pitched the New Yorks into the championship in 18SS and 1889, became a league umpire after he retired from the game. He got along with fair success until he made some close decisions against the New Yorks at the Polo grounds one day which so provoked the crowd on the bleachers that they called him robber and thief. This was too much for Keefe, who had been a hero in the estimation of these rooters only a few years before, and he soon resigned the job, vowing that he would never have anything further to do with the national game. "Nobody knows what umpiring is," said a well known judge of play to the Sun man recently. "The language used by some of these star players would not look well in print, yet they can get away with their verbal assaults because the club owners back them up. An umpire is a common enemy. The players regard him as such, and so do the magnates, so that it is a fearful job to please anybody. "A man may umpire just as he sees the plays, but he will be abused and threatened all the same, no matter whether he is correct or not. The rowdies, with a crowd behind them, are very brave on the field, but away from it most of them are meek as lambs and generally apologize for what they have said on the diamond. But this does not square the umpire with the public, or rather that part of it which can see nothing but the home team and which cries 'Kill the umpire!' whenever he makes a decision against the favorites." The question of umpires often comes up before the magnates for due consid eration. The American league, through President Johnson, has done much to abate the evils which have undoubted ly driven many respectable persons away from the games in the past, but so far, although President Pulliam has been sincere in his efforts, the National league has been content to travel in the old rut Umpire baiting is cowardly and un sportsmanlike. The players are to blame chiefly, but tne magnates can keep even the most blatant rowdies of the diamond in check if they but say the word. Unsubdued. There was a business man in a little western town who never had a good word for anybody. Everyone held him in more or less fear and many dis liked him strongly He made no effort to cultivate friendships and at one time or another almost every inhabi tant of the village had had a quarrel with him. One day the old lion tried to board a train which did not stop. He was thrown a great distance and fell in a heap on the track in the rear of the departing train. The group of villagers on the depot platform thought that their hereditary enemy had been killed before their eyes and were ready to drop all their bitter preju dices at the grave. One ran up to where the fallen monarch lay and seeing signs of re turning life, anxiously asked* "Are you badly hurt, Captain?" With the first short breath the fall en man was able to draw he gasped: "No, you d— old fool! That's the way I always get off a train."—Kan sas City Times. THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. CORNER LOT TEAM The Small Boy Who Can Throw Curves Is Busy These Days—Knows Mbrc Baseball "Dope" Than All Sporting Writers Put Together. The corner lot teams are at it again. To a woman the statement doesn't carry much significance but the man who at some time in his life did not hold an honored position on a corner lot nine, would be harder to find than the proverbial dodo. The average small boy between the ages of 10 and 16 years could put the most expert sporting writer to shame, with the baseball statistics he can quote. He can reef off averages by the yard, and tell you iust where the Giants finished two years ago, and who led the American league pitchers last year, and the batting and fielding averages of the Grand Forks players last season. He knows the names of all the pitch-' ers in the big leagues, and every kid has his favorite. He dopes up teams that could whip all creation on the diamond. His waking hours are spent, trying to master the intricacies of the out curve and "spit" ball, and he dreams of runs and strike outs. If the corner lot players followed the ambitions they held at 14, the country would have to shut up shop and devote its attention to baseball for nine months in the year, and there would be no one to look on but the members of the gentler sex, and no baseball players but pitchers. It is the ambition of every boy to be a pitcher. The position of shortstop or second base holds out attractions from an ambitious player, who sees visions of himself scooping in hot lin ers, but the pitching box is the dizzy height of the baseball ladder to which he aspires to climb. The boy who can receive the mystic signals from the catcher, spit on the glove, wipe the ball on his trousers, whirl his arms around and shoots something over the plate that he fondly Imagines is a curved ball, is more to be envied than princes or railroad presidents. He is the boy who sees before him self a dazzling career.as a baseball pitcher, receiving fabulous sums from the big league clubs, and being fea tured as the phenom of the day. Out in the outfield are stationed the less aggressive players. It doesn't matter if their father owns a couple of iron mines or a few thousand acres of white pine. If they can't catch a ball without running about an equal chance of fumbling it, they are rele gated to the outfield to loaf around throwing stones at stray dogs, until their turn comes to bat. Anyone who can chase a ball will do for the out field on a corner lot team, but the pitcher must have qualifications to hold his job. He must either own the only available glove or ball, or else be able to thrash the other members of the team individually or collec tively, and show a willingness to do so whenever his authority is ques tioned. The names of the corner lot aggre gations are wonderful to behold. The list includes such fancy cognomens as "The Little Napoleons" "The Happy Hooligans," "The West. End Tigers," "The Endion Giants," The Lakeside Demons," and last, but not least, "The Sluggers." "The sluggers" may come from any part of the city.1 In fact they generally come from all parts, for it is the most popular of all the names, and the locality can be easily prefixed. To be captain of a team of "Sluggers" is all the heaven the average boy wants here below. Any dissertation on the corner lot team would be incomplete without a mention of the "empire." This gentle man with the perverted mind and un derhand methods is the bugbear that always stands between the corner lot team and victory. AVith never failing regularity he beats one or the other1 of the two teams out of the coveted honor, and, with a "rotten" decision at a critical moment dashes the hopes of one of the nines, and hands to the other the palm of victory. Such are the corner lot teams, and they will be busy from now until Sep tember. Jl'DGK BEN B. LINDSEY And llis Methods—Discussed by Elbert Hubbard. The following clipped from Friday's Commercial Appeal, commends itself especially to Grand Forks readers, not only from the interest naturally felt in regard to the treatment of youthful criminals, but because of Judge Lind sev's splendid ideas on the subject: Down in Boston they have a Female Jail—and why not, since in Buffalo Uiey have a Female Seminary? Well, in the kindness of their judicial hearts in Boston when children are arrested, boys and girls, they put them in with Wall Paper Timely advise: Buy Wall Paper now, and buy at LambeY Store where there are so many beautiful patterns to select from. Mouldings to match. J.H. The Wall Paper and Moulding Merchant VS. i:Al mW 1 the lady criminals instead of the gents. The idea fe founded on the supposition that all womdh have a motherly In stinct and will exert themselves in looking after the little waifs. If a worse blunder could occur than locking boys up with depraved men it is to lock them up with depraved women. To picture the dire effects upon a child of contact with drunken women of the streets is frightful to contemplate, but it reveals the thought less, inconsiderate, heedless treatment meted out to the luckless little ones, even in the great commonwealth of Massachusetts. The state of Massachusetts, like most other states, recognizes its duty done when it provides a prison in which to lock the boy up. A bad boy should be thankful for really any kind of a jail—bless my soul! Judge Lindsey was recently in Bos ton and gave twenty-three public ad dresses in five days. To his simple, heartfelt story of what he ip doing in Denver for the boys of the street, and the so-called bad boys, the J3os tonlans listened in wonder. Many doubted the literal truth of the mes sage, others smiled and talked of "hypnotism," and one eminent jurist remarked: "We do not need advice in Massachusetts from people who live on the border of civilization as to the management of our criminals. We have had 300 years of experience In this line. I can try all the children that are arrested in Boston during the week in an hour." And he could, there is no doubt, but he could not try them In the Judge Lindsey way. Judge Lindsey weighs 120 pounds in shade—Just one-third of what Secre tary Taft scales. But Judge Lindsey has done things that have never been done before in the history of the world, and the beneficient influence he is weilding is mighty and far-reaching. Officially he is known as the Hon. Benjamin F. Lindsey, judge of the probate court and magistrate of the juvenile court. But to the street boys of Denver he is plain "Daddy Lind sey." The custom in most places when boys are arrested is to put them In the pen with the drunks, suspects, vag rants and hardened criminals. Thus every jail is a school of crime. Judge Lindsey was the first man in America to provMe a "Detention school" for children under arrest. This school is in charge of a man and his wife, who were and are school teachers and are experienced in the management of children. The next move was to investigate each case and find out why the child did the thing with which he was charged. The child was regarded as "a victim of unkind conditions," and instead of bagging him on to the Re form school, an earnest effort was put forth to better his environment. And by the probation system he was kept in touch with those who have his best interests and welfare at heart. About three years ago a boy was brought before Judge Lindsey charged with stealing sand and lumber from a railroad company. He was caught by a (railroad detective, red-handed. He pleaded guilty and asked for his "papers," which meant that he was ready to take his commitment papers and go to the Reform school. Judge Lindsey hesitated about send ing this frank, active, alert and In telligent little fellow away without further investigation. So the judge just put on his hat and he and the youthful criminal took a street car to the boy's home, in the suburbs of the city. The house where the boy lived was small and very plain—the home of a laborer, built on a lot 27x75. In the little yard behind the house was a pile of sand, stolen sand, and two barefooted little girls were digging in it. In the corner was a shanty the boy had built with the stolen lumber. Judge Lindsey explained to the boy the wrong of taking things that be longed to other people and the sin of stealing sand, even if the railroad did have plenty. But he did not send the boy back to the Detention school, neither did he commit him to the Re formatory. The judge went straight to the of fice of the superintendent of schools and induced that worthy to go with him and see the stolen sand and play house built with lumber that was pinched. Then these two men laid the case before an official of the railroad com pany. The result was that the com pany donated a lot nearby for a pub lic playground, and deposited on it a carload of sand. And the superin tendent of schools fitted up the base ment of the school in that ward with improvised manual training appara tus. The bad boy who had stolen was made monitor of the room, with a re quest to gather up all the bad boys in that vicinity and set them to work. The result has been that the arrests have been cut down 80 per cent. When Judge Lindsey decides that It is best to send a boy to the Reform school at Golden, he does not send an officer with the youngster. No, he just makes out. the commitment pa pers, gives the lad 35 cents to pay car fare, shakes hands with him, and away he goes. Of a hundred boys sent In this way, not one has proved disloyal to the trust reposed in him. Judge Lindsey believes in the boy, and the boy believes in Judge Lindsey and when you get a boy In that frame of mind where he responds to a trust, proving true, even to going to prison alone and unattended, that boy is on the way to reformation, for he Is re forming himself. Judge Lindsey is one of the modern saviors of the world. Smokers' Habit Explained. "why is it that fcll smokers hold their cigars in the left side of the mouth?" asked one of a group of smokers at Paola the other day. "They do not," replied a cigar man. "It is only the right handed men who do. Left handed men hold their cigars in the right side of the mOuth. The reason, I have been told, is this: It is natural with all men to make their lesser side do what work it can to keep their stronger side free that it may meet emergencies. It a man has a package to carry he holds It in his left hand if he is right handed. If he is left handed he holds it in his right hand. In .other words the hand he has the most confidence in Is free for emergency use. This same idea he stretches to cover the muscles of his lips. It isn't the possibility that he' may need the muscles on the right side for emergency use that makes the right handed man hold his cigar in the left side of his mouth—it's Just that Idea about his whole lesser side that makes him do it"—Kansas City Journal.
