The Demonstration Against an Amen-
can linger Caused to Prevent an
Outbreak Against Him.
PARIS, Oct. US.— A remarkable story is
going the rounds as to the real animus of
the tr-mendous demonstration in Masclj,
1885, against Miss Mane Van Zandt, the
M. Goron, formerly a high official at the
Prefecture of Police, declares that the
memorable and offensive attack upon the
nnger was engendered by the followers of
M. Ferry to counteract an intended
demonstration against i.ira by Radicals
and SocinlisiH alter the disastrous defeat
of the French at' Lang Son, Annam.
M. Caruercarse, the Prefect of Police of
tne day, was consulted as to how to pre
vent the intended demonstration against
tlie unpopular M. Ferry, and according to
M. Goron he suggested a monster demon
stration against Miss Van Z-indt. All the
available detectives and tneatrical claques
w«re fcent to the Opera Comioue to howl
at and hiss the American singer.
Whenever there was a lull iv lite uproar
the cry was raised that Mis^ Van Zandt
was going out by another door, and so
successful was the trick that the *xciie
ruent was maintained until midnight and
the attention of the intendine anti-Fery
demonstrators was delayed until it was
too late to to the Foreign Orhcc.

Mr. Huntingdon about bis own road

"I think the Government ought to have

There is no other valor in the world that
even stands comparison with that displayed ;
by the woman called upon to protect her
children from violence. There is no weapon i
that a woman will not wield and no danger ■
that she will not dare. It is before and after I
their birth that too many women fail to !
protect their children from the greatest of !
all dangers, the most blighting of all inher-
itances — feeble and sickly bodies.
The woman who properly prepares for the ;
greatest event of her life, motherhood — ',
who takes the right care of herself during
the expectant period, and sees that she is !
free from all weakness and disease of the i
organs distinctly feminine, and may be |
sure that her baby will be born strong and
healthy. Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription
is the best remedy for all forms of weak- !
ness and disease peculiar to women. If j
taken during the period of gestation, she
will be free from the usual discomforts; the
babe's coming will be safe and easy, and it
will be blessed with good health.
Miss Edith Cain, of Clinton, Allegheny Co., Pa.,
■writes : " I take pleasure in expressing my faith
in your ' Favorite Prescription.' After two years
of suffering I began taking Dr. Pierces medi-
cine and now I am entirely cured. I had been
troubled with female weakness for some time and
also with a troublesome drain on the system but i
now I am happy and well."

A MILLION DIFFERENCE.
Lick House a Bone of Conten
tion to the Fair
The Appraisers and Eeal Estate Men
Have Different Opin
When ii comes to appraising the val
ues of big lumps of property in the bus -
ness cenier 01 the town there is almost as
I much difference among real estate men
as amoni; doctors when a disease is to be
diagnosed. The value of the Lick House
property is a bone of contention among
the appraisers oi ihe Fair estate that has
set a.l Montgomery street a-taiking, ana
as many different opinions on the subject
nave been advanced us there are drinks ou
t c Klondike.
Tbe tbree men who cannot agree cffi
cialy upon this item are Richard \. Dey,
G. L. Bresse nnd E. A. Lei h, who weie
appointed by Jud^e Slack almost a year
ago to ascertain just how much James G.
Fair loft h;s children. Now it happened
that a short time previous to his death
the millionaire invested heavily in down
town busine^3 property, the Lick House
being one of his principal purchases. The
purchase pr C 3 was the trifling sum of
?1,250,0C0 cash. Many other lots were
boutftn aDout the same time, but they
were small affairs compared with the
Montßomery-street hostelry, and althoupU
the ibn c appraisers have split to a more
or less extenton the value of all of thee
purchases, it is probable that their repor/.
would have bern made to tbe court lOIA
mo only for a trifling difference of $250,1»
000 in ihe worth of the Lick Honse. f^
Pretty nearly every real estate dealer
in the city has been called upon lor aa
opinion, and it seems that the property
a» a money affair is somewhat oi a con
undrum to house and lot sharps in
It is understood that of tbe three ap
praisers Leiph and Bresse are of the opin
ion that tbe Lick House is worth ail Fair
paid for it, if not more. Boih are real
estate dealers, and of course it may be
that they care to see no depreciation of
prices of property. Dey on the other
hand, it is »aid, does not believe the Lick
House is worth within $250,000 of the
value Leigh and Brease put upon it, and
thus it goes proportionately all along the
line. In fact, it is said that witbin the
last few days in adding up tbe various
items of the immense estate the three ap
praisers are at variance to the extent oi a
sum exceeding $1,000,000.
Next to the Paiace Hotel the Lick
H 'U-e covers more land than any business
building in the city.
To Suggest a Site.
The Street Committee of the Board of Su
pervisors heard the advocates of the Mission
park and zoo yesterday, and decided to refer
the matter of suegesting a site to John Mc-
Laren, superintendent of Golden Gate Park,
and Edward Deady, head gardener of the City
