to say that they will protect refugees from
arrest in case they come in on the trains.

two refugees are known to have come in

other things, it says:
/Irperience has demonstrated that there is
little if any danger of contracting yellow fever
after the fall of frost. This epidemic does not
differ, so far as we can see. from
past visitations of the disease in
other locaities. Frost has been heralded all
over the country as the open sesame which
would admit refugees again within the gates of
their own city. If the authorities here have not
aided in this wide promulgation, t hey have, at
least, never spoken a word which would lead
refugees to think differently. Now, if we are to
be guided by the dominant Idea of yester
day’s tripartite conference, frost lias
nothing to do with removing or lessening the
danger of taking the disease. This can be re
moved only by disinfection, and whoever heard
of wholesale disinfection before,'or whoever
heard of shutting people out of a city while it
is in progress - VVha l a metamorphosis! We
have already had two frosts one light, the
other moderately heavy Now, wh.-it valid
reason can he given for refusing
refugee* an entrance here- Two thirds
or three-fourths of them would come to houses

this to be a factor of danger after the fall ol

New York, Nov. 28.—Another case of
yellow fever was reported by Dr. George
C. Wilson to-night in the person of Rafael
Delano, of No. 7o Mulberry street. Delano
arrived here from Jacksonville with his
wife and two children to-day, and was
taken sick soon after his arrival. Shortly
after noon black vomit began and Dr.
Wilson notified the police and board of
health, which at once had him removed to
the reception ho'-pital. Delano told the
doctor that he had been in Jacksonville
during the epidemic and had nursed several
patients, but had never caught the fever

once went to a densely populated Italian
quarter, fears are entertained that the
germs may have spread. Dr. Edson, of tee
health board, said he had not learned of the
case until 11 o’clock to-night, and that ho
had not yet made an investigation.
Dr. Edson examined the mail late this

A NEW PHAS - IN THE STRIKE.
The Three Brotherhoods Request Arbi
tration of the Trouble.
Indianapolis, Nov. 28. —The switch
men's strike has assumed anew and threat
enirg phase. Traffic in the yards on the
Belt road moved along with regularity’ to
day. The officials assert that new men arc
applying constantly. The situation with
the strikers had grown desperate; they mus:
do something. Consequently they called
a secret conference last night with the en
gineers and firemen at which a very strong
sediment favorable to the switchrne 1 w.is
manifested. After prolonged discussion, a
decision was reached, which the striking
men hailed with pleasure. In accordance
with the action of the meeting, a committee
composed of representatives of the three
brotherhood, was appointed to call upon
the officers of the various roads to-day and
request them to submit the matter at issue
between them and the switchmen to arbi
This forenoon the commit ee called on sev
eral superinte .dents aud followed its in
structions. No tbr a* accompanied the re
quest, ad the officials were left to judge
for them-elves whether the refusal to heed
it will lead to greater complica
tions. That they regarded this
phase of the trouble as much more
serious than mere surface appearances
indicates is evident from the haste with
which they gathered into secret conference
at the union station. The result of this
conference of t.iio superintendents has as
yet taken no definite form, either for arbi
tration or concession. The brakemen have
been outspoken in their sympathy for the
switchmen ever since the strike began. On
several occasions early in the trouble they
refused to fill places vacated by strikers, and
were discharged. This action they took
simply as individuals, but it is now under
stood that their brotherhood has passed on
the question and officially instructed its
members to fill no places which the switch
men have abandoned.

COTTON IN CHINA.
Manufacturing the Staple—The Effort
to Introduce Machinery.
From the Boston Journal of Commerce.
Cotton manufacturing by power is find
ing an existence in the empire of China.
Mention has been made in these columns of
an effort in this direction at Shanghai. The
beginning of the enterprise was the intro
duction of a number of Japanese cotton
gins so arranged as to be run by belt power
from a steam engine. At our solicitation a
correspondent as that place secured for
us a plan of the plant which we
may at some time illustrate should the
subject become of sufficient interest.
Recent advices from Shanghai in
form us that the Chinese cotton merchants
of the place iiave petitioned the au
thorities adversely to the further prosceu
tion of the cotton spinning coni paily’s ope
rations, which are now confined to cleans
ing the raw material and placing it upon
the market. The object of the company is
to snin and weave the cotton which it gins,
but which lyxs not yet been attained beyond
the preliminary steps. The objection enter
tained by the petitioners toward Hie com
pany is because of the latter’s practice bf put
ting its ginned cotton upon the market in
competition and to the prejudice of the
business of the cotton merchants. The
authorities are evidently not iu sympathy
with the purposes of the petitioners, for
in their reply they express no apprehension
of tiie injury described and feared, a; the
amount of cotton annually cleansed by
the oompany with its machinery is only a
very small portion of the cotton marketed
in Bhungbni. Besides, the "superiority of
machinery over hand work, which it illus
trates. cannot but tend to the advantage of
commerce.’’ The authorities are not slow
in condemning the petitio i as exhibiting a
disposition to obtain an improper monopoly
and undue control of the cotton busiuess.
The company, at present, is simply utiliz
ing its ginning machinery till its plant is
completed for spinning and weaving.
When these plans are consummated protests
will more likely emanate from the manu
facturing population t han from ttie mercan
tile class. _ __ _
Partin* the Hair.
From the San Francisco Call.
“On the right, if you please," said a
representative of the Call last evening to a
tonsorial artist, who, brush and comb in
hand, w as about to part his hair on the left
side of the head.
“All right, sir,” remarked the knight of
tho brush aud comb; "was going to part it
on the other side from force of habit.
“How mauy people part the hair on the

“And why do so mauy men part it on the
"Because,” replied the artist, brushing
back a stray lock, “they've tieen brought
up to it from infancy. A mother facing
her boy always holds the comb in her right
hand, and it being easii>st to comb the hair
from left to right, she parts it on the left.
The boy wben he grows up and is able to
comb liie own hair, finds the part on that
side, and follows the line marked out by bis
mother. That’s why the majority of men
part on the left.”
THE WAYTHE GANG WAS CAUGHT.
A Piece of Speedy Detective Worli by
the Secret Service.
From the A'ew York Star.
Boston, Nov. 26. —Perhaps the quickest
work in the record of crime hunters was
that of the secret service officers during the
past week in capturing the gang of counter
feiters convicted last week in Auburn, N.
Y., who have for some time teen operating
in the northwestern part of Pennsylvania
and the southern tier counties of New
York. In the week’s good work Special
Agent Patrick Lyons of this city has
play cd a prominent and very creditable
The story of the capture has been told
heretofore in a fragmentary manner, but
the first accurate siatement of the facts
was given to a reporter Hy United States
District Attorney Hoyt last night.
On the day after election Special Agent
Lyons was informed that a prominent
member of the gang of counterfeiters who
bad been circulating bogus silver coin could
be caught by following a certain course of
procedure. He at once put himself in com
munication with Chief Bellof Washington,
informing him of the information he had
received, and placed him-elf under
that officer’s instructions. Mr. Lyons
soon learned that H. B. Mellin,
who lived near Warren, Pa., was an
extensive dealer in the counterfeit money.
Large amounts of the coin h ive been cir
culated in that section, and so perfect was
the imitation and to ruch an extent had it
been circulated that the people in that
vicinity were very suspicious and took
every precaution to guard against receiving
it. Having this information. Agent Lyons
arranged with a man in Warren named
Edward Bennett to buy some of the money
of Mellin, and instructed him to mark it
for identification. One week ago last
Friday night Bennett went out to
the town where Mellin lived and
obtained the coin. He returned to
a hotel and went to a room for the
purpose of marking the coin. Here a most
singular accident occurred. Bennett went
into his room and left the door open.
Every one in tiiat vicinity was of course
suspicious of bright coin, or any mail in
whose possession it was found, aud so, when
a boarder chanced to pass by Bennett’s
open door and saw him handling and mark
ing bright silver coin his suspicions were
aroused. The boarder “gave the alarm”
and Bennett’s every movement was watched.
On the next evening he was to go to James
town to meet Agent Lyons. But being sus
pected as a counterfeiter, the constable
was at the depot ready to arrest him when
he started. Mr. Bennett submitted to the
arrest iu silence. It was indeed a trying
plight. He could not reveal his real pos.-
tion in the matter, for in that case tho
whole plan of capture would be thwarted.
However, he telegraphed to Agent Lyons
that he had been arrested and was in jail at
Warren. On Monday Lyons and Agent
Baggs of Utica came on, and after sufficient
explanation to the United States commis
sioner at Warren, Bennett was discharged,
and they were then ready to go on with
Agents Lyons and Baggs with Mr.
Bmi lett then started in search of Mellin.
He lived near a small town some dist ince
out of Warren, and left for that place by
t ain. The three men were sitting uear
each other in the car, talking in an uncon
cerned way just as the train pulled out of
North Warren. At that station several
passengers got on aud among them a large
swarthy looking man whom Bennett at once
discovered to bo Mellin. He at once turned
his face from him and whispered t > Agent
Lyons: "There’s yur man!” Mellin either
saw the movement or for some reason
became suspicious, and going to the
door jumped from the train and Agent
Lyons after him. As soon as Mellin could
recover his feet he started on the run,
emptying his pockets of all his loose “silver”
by casting it to the four winds, with very
little regard for either tbo wind or the “sil
ver.” Agent Lyons gave chase and soon
overhauled him. Mellin is a powerful man,
little less than a desperado, and as soon as
he saw that escape was impossible, turned
and showed fight. Lyons was too quick for
him, however, and ho gave Mellin a blow
in tho neck that laid him at full length on
“Put up your hands!” demanded Officer
Lyons as soou as Mellin regained his feet,
and by this times Officer Baggs having
come up, Mellin was taken back t> the
station and searched. On hii person six
teen spurious dollars that be had not got rid
of were found, and in his valise was a kit
of burglar’s tools, together with a dark
lantern, a revolver, skeleton keys, and
other implements of the trade. Mellin was
then lodged in jail at that place. Seeing
that there was no chance of getting out of
the box, Mellin was induced to give in
formation that led to the completion of tho
He said that he hRd obtained liis money
of “Squire” Richardson of L'assa lags, who
bad supplied the whole country round about
with the extra “silver.” After some time
he was induced to write a letter of intro
duction to Richardson stating that the
bearer, Mr. Bennett, was a perfectly safe
man, and that be (Bennett) wished to buy
some st ck. The letters also stated that he
(Mellin) had known the b-aror for some
time, and could guarantee him to be a per
fect ly safe man.
Equipped with the letter ot introduction,
the three "queer hunters” again set out for
Cassadaga. and arrived there Monday even
ing. Officer Lyons busied himself in pro
curing an order for arrost, while Bennett
went with his letter to make tho acquaint
ance of the “ Squire.” He was warmly re
ceived by Richardson, who informed him
thai he was very sorry, but that ho could
not accommodate him with any money’, for
he was just out. More than this tho
“Squire” said that ho had been informed
that government officers were on the
alert, and it was advisable to carry on thoir
Lu-dness with the utmost caution. How
ever, be promised to send the money as soon
as possible, and then the two men sat ami
chatted away the evening, the “squire"
waiting for Bennett to go, and Bennett
waiting for Lyons to come. Later in tbo
evening Officer Lyons came in aud Richard
son was placed under arrest and brought to
Buffalo. The promises were searched and
many counterfeiting implements found.
SCIENTIFIC WATCH STEALING.
A Professional Pickpocket Tells How
He Goes About It.
from the London Standard.
A prison official relates tbe following
story: “When speaking one day to a con
vict, a professional pickpocket, to whom l
whs givjpg a word or two of friendly coun
sel, 1 asked him w hy he could not turn over
anew leaf and become an honest man. ‘I
could not. sir,’ he replied, ‘1 must pick
pockets. I would tako your watch to-mor
row if I met you in the Strand; not,’ ho
addl'd, ‘but what I'd give it back to you, for
you’ve been very kind to mo. Wculd you
like to know how to prevent your watch
being stolen f he continued; ’just let me
have it for a minute.’ Curious to learn a
useful hint, l was about to draw ms watch
troin my pocket, when I found that it was
already in this expert’s hand, without my
experiencing the slightest touch. He then
explained to me that the most approved
method of detaching a watch from its
owner was to hold the ring to which the
chain was attached flrmly between the
linger and thumb, and then, with a sharp
twist, snap the stool pivot connecting watch
and ring, leaving the watch free iu tue
thief's hand and the ring on the chain. ‘A
dead loss to us,’ he added, with cool effront
ery, ‘of (1 shillings.’ He then showed me
that if the ring and watch were connected
by a swivel joint, the difficulty of watch
stealing would be increased so much as to
make it scarcely worth the risk.”

“Fifty cents to go down to the whirlpool.”
“You agreed to bring us down and show
us the whirlpool,” I said to the hackman.
“Well, its down those stairs.”
“But I don’t propose to pay 50 cents to go
“Then you won’t see it.”
“And your won’t get your dollar’ - ’
“W on’t I? Come, I am ready to take
“But we are not ready to go. You lied
to us, and I refuse to pay you a cent,”
“You either pay or I’ll make jelly of
“Come and try it,”
He did not accept the invitation, but
drove off up town, and a stranger said to
“He has gone for a crowd, and you will
be luckv to get off alive. It’s a shame
faced swindle, of course, and here are a
dozen of us who have been played the same
way, but what can we do about it?”
“You can kick against the gang.”
“Yes, but we’d get the worst of it. They
are a bad lot. You'd better send the fellow
“I’ll be hanged if I do.”
As we started up the river on foot a dozen
men followed to see the fun. When w r e
reached the end of the street car track a
mob of fourteen hacktnen received us. The
one who had lied to us demanded his dollar.
I refused to pay it. He called to his mob to
come on, and 1 hacked up to the building,
leveled the revolver at the crowd and
waited. They didn’t come on worth a cent.
They didn’t care for dollars just then. One
by one they slunk away, while I took the
car back to the Falls. The leader tried to
get me arrested for carrying a deadly
weapon, but no ono would issue a warrant.
One justice told him in my hearing:
“Every man coming to visit the falls
ought to come with two revolvers, and the
oftener he fires into your crowd the better
it will be for the honest people here. I wish
more kickers would come here. ”
