named Abram Wilinski, ou Fob. 21, had
both legs cut off by a Florida Railway and
Navigation train. His physicians, to save
his life, afterward amputated both
limbs above the part where the wheels had
crushed them, and now comes information

TOURISTS ROLLING IN.
Jacksonville is fast filling up with tourists,
and the streets pre-ont. t etr old time tupe t
of business activity The hotels ar ■ filling
up'erv fast, and in the afternoon and
evening present a very animated appear
ance, with scores of touris s
sealed on the piazas enjoying the balmy' air
of Florida; in the evening the brilliantly
illuminated windows of the lijteis, the
handsome illumination of fat. James pa;k
by the electric light, and the delicious
strains of music from the Windsor, all con
spire to render this portion of the city a
most enjoyable resort.
THK SUB TROPICAL.
The Sub-Tropical is getting in its work
■well, and its special attractions of after
noon and evening concerts, Mrs. Abbott’s
wonderful and mysterious | owers as shown
in her tests on the stage, and the other
ettractii ns provided by the management,
render the exposition one of tbe pleasantest
places of resort in the city. The winter
visitors have found this out, and every after
noon scores of them visit the “Sub” to see
the exhibits made there of Florida’s indus
tries, and to note the many specimens of
rare, and to them, almost unknown, species
of plants and shrubs. Tbe tropical plants
that were set out a year and a half ago
within the exposition bu lding and in the
grounds, are now growing most luxuriantly,
and they present a wealth of information
and research that the tourists from the
north are not slow to avail theinsel \es of.
THE GEORGIA WONDER.
Mrs. Abbott, the “Georgia Womle ,” as
she is called, has attracted a great deal of
notice here. Opinions are varied concern
ing her powers. Many have denounced her
methods as tricky, and fay that there is
nothing in her so-called mamfes
tStinnf. Many who were skeptics
at fist, toon an early opportunity
to test for themselves her power, and at the
close of the experiments they all declared
that there was more in it than they thought.
She has been a drawing card at the exposi
tion, and Director General Webb and Secre
tary Adams have been con pliru. nted highly
on their foresight in securing her.
MR. PLANT’S PARTY.
H. B. Plant and party inspected the Sub-
Tropical this forenoon, and Air. Plant es
pecially was greatly pleased with the ap
pearance of the exposition grounds and the
display within the building. He said that
the citizens of Jacksonville, especially the
directors and others interested in the Sub-
Tropical, deserve great thanks foe their en
terpns i:i starting up ihe exposition under
the adverse circumstances this year, and he
predicts a brilliant and successful opening
for next year.
THE CITY’S SEWERS.
Many people are impatient!}' waiting for
the special report that is to be made on tne
city’s sewers by the Boston export, who
came here and made a thorough inspection

From the time taken to present the re
port it is supposed that it will be most com
pi ete in every respect.

AN ILL-F ATED SPOT.
A German Killed A hile Walking Near
the Scene of the Mud Run Horror.
Macch Chunk, Pa., March 12.—Otto
man Schmidt of Wilkesbarre, while walk
ii gon the track this morning, was struck
and instantly killed at Mud Run station by
a Lehigh Valley passenger train bearing
the witnesses and several of the defendants
in the Mud Run disaster trials which are in
progress in this city. Schmidt’s t ody was
mangled almost beyond recognition. This
seemi to be a singularly fatal spot. In ad
dition to the terrible collision of October
last, when sixty persons were killed, there
has been a number of casts recently
I similar to that of Schmidt.
ENGINEER COOK’S TRIAL.
The second day of the trial of Eugineer
Cook, in connecs ion with th Mud Run disas
ter. opened with Bupt. Mitchell of the Lehigh
Valley Railroad Company in the witness
box. His testimony was especially damag
ing to Engineer Cook. The defense sought
t > nrove mat the head-light from the second
engine blinded Cook and prevented him
from seeing the red light, but was unable
to do so, and it then endeavored to
prove that some person or per
sons stood in front of the red lantern,
which was used as a signal. It was the
custom of the railroad employes to place a
lantern on the platform, ad the testimony
of the telegraph operators, as well as that
f four other witnessas. showed that the
lantern had been placed on the platform,
and that one of the engineers blew two
whistles, which meant that they understood
or saw the signal.
SPEED OF THE TRAIN.
All the expert testimony adduced proved
that the train was running at the rate of
twenty to twenty-five mile* an hour, and
that Engineer Cook could have stopped the
tr in in time to prevent a collision. Of
seven witnesses examined all seemed
to concur in the sbelief that
the accident could have been averted
by Conk ir Major, engineer of the second lo
comotive. Beveral witnesses who were in the
wrecked cars corroborated the testimony of
the railroad officials. All efforts of the
counsel for the defense to find a flaw in the
rule3 of the railroad company failed.
The commonwealth will probably close
its case to-morrow.
JOHN A CAMPBELL DEAD.
An Ex-Justice of the Supreme Court
and a Prominent Confederate.
Baltimore, March 12. —Hon. John A.
Campbell, ex-justice of the supreme court
of the United States and assistant confed
erate secretary of war, died at his home in
this city this afternoon, aged nearly 78.
His death was the end of a long illness re
sulting from old age. He was born nar
Washington, IVilkes county, Georgia,
and graduated from the university
of that state at the age of 15
years with first honors, and after
wards went to VVest Point. He was ad
mitted to the practice of law in Florida He
practiced law in Montgomery, Ala., aid
there married Miss Anne E. Gold til waits.
He went to Mobil *, Ala., where he litigated
and settled almost all the land titles which
were complicated at that time by reason of
obscurity of Spanish grants.
SENT TO THE LEGISLATURE.
In 1836 he was elected a member of the
state legislature. In 1853 lie was nominated
to fill the vacancy in the supreme court by
President Pierce and was unanimously con
firmed by the Senate. He entered upon his
duties at the age of 42. 11l the spring of
1861 he resigned his position ou the conrt,
went south and be.came assistant secretary
of war of the confederacy. He himself re
garded his success in the great “state”
case, as it is called—the states
of New York and New Hampshire vs.
Louisiana —as the triumph of his legal life,
as it established his view of the rights of
the states under the constitution. Recurring
to his argument in that state Chief Justice
Waite said; “That is the greatest legal
argument that I have ever hoard,” and
Ju tice Miller said, "I concur in that
opinion.” Historian Bancroft wrote that it
was a profound study of the constitution.
AN BXQDU3 OF NEGROES.
Southern Agents Baiting Them with
Raleigh, N. C., March 13. —Southern
agenti moving negro families to Arkansas
are quietly, bill successfully at work. Their
operations are confined thus far to a few
counties on the railroad lines near Golds
boro. The counties are systematically can
vassed. Several thousand persons have
already gone, and the indications point
to an extensive movement. Many
largo plantations are almost de
serted. Negro drummers are paid
$5 for each family secured. The entire ex
pen *e of transportation to Little Rock is
paid by the agents. The negroes say they
are promised forty acres of land, a brick
house, a cow, and $1 50 per day for labor,
and are told that corn sells for 19 cents a
barrel, and meat at cent a pound.
They know nothing of their destination.
The removal is by families. Thu planters
in the counties affected are greatly embar
rassed at the loss of farm hands at the be
ginning of the planting season.
FALL RIVER’S STRIKERS.
No Change in the Situation—A Maes
Fall River, Mass., March 12.—The
strike situation in this city is not greatly
changed, but appears to favor the weavers.
They are firm, and only 1,000 out of 4,000
looms are running. A mass meeting of
(5,000 striking weavers was held on South
park this morning, and th3 mo t notable
matters in the addresses were as follows: The
loom fixers in some mills are being dis
charged for declining to take the places of
the striking weavers. Advice was given to
boycott saloons, and offers of foot ball play
er-’ services have been made as a means of
raising money. The crowd, though large,
was remarkably orderly, and not a police
man was in signt. Tiie manufacturers show
no change of front.

Milwaukee, Wis., March 13.—The ex

morning, and the Mongolians were held in

NEW HAMPSHIRE'S EJECTION.
The Prohibition Amendment Defeated
by a Decided Majority.
Boston, Mass., March 12.—Only partial
returns from the New Hamp-hire elections
are received, but there seems little doubt
that the constitutional prohibition amend
ment has bee i defeated by a decided ma
jority. Of the cities, Nashua appears to be
the only one voting in favor of the amend
ment, giving it 202 majority. Carroll and
Coos counties are the only ones
that show indications of having fa
vored the amendment, although Grafton
county may show a small majority, but not
the necessary two-thirds. Tnere is little
doubt of the adoption of all the other pro
posed amendments, excent one which pro
vides for striking from the bill of rights the
word “protestant,” thereby making the
constitution non-sectarian. The fate of
this amendment cannot yet be learned, as
the returns are very meager.
THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE.
The prohibitory amendment was the
most important issue, and comparatively
little interest was manifested throughout
the state on the other amendments. In
Nashua and other cities vigorous efforts
were made by women, who stool all day
at the • polls soliciting votes and
aiding the temperance movement in
every possible way. Returns from
sixty cities and towns give a majority of
4,524. Tiie indications are now that the
prohibitory amendment will be defeated by
nearly 3,000 votes and ail the others
adopted. If the remaining towns cast the
relative vote in compari on with that
of last fall, as those already heard from, the
total vote in the state on the amendment
will be about 16,000.
New York Operators Shy Despite the
New York, March 12.—The news from
abroad in reference to the copper syndicate
was of a less excited nature this morning.
The action of prominent London bankers
yesterday in coining forward and assuming
control of the syndicate's affairs lias had a
re-assuring effect upon the foreign market
arid to-day Chili bars imnroye 1 ill on spot,
and £5 ou futures. Cables froth London
stated that the market was firm at the
advance. From Paris intelligence came
tha t Societe des Metaux shares were quoted
at 150 francs, and Rio Tint > at 243 francs.
HOLDING OFF AT NEW YORK.
Despite the improvement in the foreign
market, operators here were not inclined to
take hold of metal to-day. The Lake cop
per call passed without a bid being re
ceived, at;d offers for good merchantable
brands were purely nominal and no sales
res ilted. Bears on ’change shook their
heads ominously when the improved
foreign cables came in and argued t hat the
Mathesons action yesterday was prompted
with a view of affording a loop hole for the
Rothschilds to get out of the French cor
FURTHER IMPROVEMENT LOOKED* FOR.
Further improvement of £4 or £5, they
said, in London figures, would not be sur
prising. When tiie price had reached £6O
or thereabout- for spot Chili bars, the bears
further argued, the money men at the head
of the syndicate would quickly dispose of
their stock and leave the monopoly to its
ultimate fate. All the financial aid re
ceived by the syndicate of late is attributed
to this cause,
London. March 12. —Copper to-day
touched £SB, closing at £56.
A QUIETER FEELING.
Paris, March 12. —At the close of the
bourse to-day the feeling wis quieter. It
is reporte 1 that the R ithschild- and Bar

A DOUBLE POLICE FORCE.
Indianapolis Saddled with an Expen
Indianapolis, March 12. —Indianapolis
now has a double force, two police head
quarters and nobody can tell how they will
secure their pay. The board organized
under a bill passed by the legislature, met
this morning and organized a police force.
This force was selected las night and in

Changes at Niagara Falls.
From the Toronto Mail.
On Friday last a mass of rock fell from
the Hor eshoe falls, and twenty-four hours
later another mass was precipitated iuto
tiie abyss below, witlra noise so closely re
sembling that of an earthquake as to alarm
the residents of the neighborhood. The re
sult of the displacement is a change i t the
shape of the fall. Formerly tin Canadian
fall deserved t > be described as a horseshoe;
but the breakiug away of rocks in the
center some years ago made it V shaped.
Now that a further displacement has oc
curred, tiie fall has returned to its old con
dition. It is of course generally known
that the falls of Niagara are gradually
moving to tiie south. The de p cut through
the solid rock marks the course they have
taken iu their backward movement. It is
a wonderful excavation—a chasm dug out
by the sheer force of water. Not less ast n
ishing has been the removal of the debris.
Tiie rock has been thoroughly pulverized,
and has been swept- out of the river to bo
distributed in Lake Ontario.
Once it was thought that in the wearing
away process the falls would ultimately
reach Lake Erie, and there degeuera e into
a -cries of rapids. But tiie the irv lias hap
pily been set aside bv one which retains t >
us the cataract, though the s.iadow of its
nrosent sif and tunc t reduced in size. The
latest idea is that the falls will recede two
miles and then remain stationary, their
bight at that point being 80 feet instead of
1(54, as at present. The supposition is sup
ported by au argtiineiit which appears
reasonable. The present site is a limestone
formation, some 80 or 90 feet thick, with a
shaly foundation. As the shal > is washed
away the limestone breaks off and the falls
take a step backward. But tbe end of the
shaly deposit will bo reached two miles
from the present fElIs, and then tlu* rushing
water will have more than it can do to
wash away the s lid precipice over which
it will be projected. It would boa waste of
time to attempt to estimate the numlier of
centuries that will elapse before Niagara
falls have found their permanent site. The

list. Let us see how near to the truth they
would be. Gold is worth a out $340 per
pound troy; platinum $l3O, and silver
about sl2. Nickel would be quoted at
about 60 cents, and pure aluminum at $8 or
$0 to the troy pound.
We will now compare these prices wi‘h
those of the rarer and less well known of
the metals. To take them in alphabetical
order, barium sells for $975 a pound, when
it is sold at all, and calcium is worth SI,BOO
a pound. Cerium is a shade higher—its
cost is SIOO an ounce, or $1,930 a pound.
These begin to look lb;e fabulous price?,
but they do not reach the highest p unt;
chromium brings S3OO, cobalt falls t > about
half the price of silver, while didymium is
the same price as cerium, and erbium $lO
cheaper on the ounce than calcium, or just
$1,650 pier pound.
If the wealth of the Vanderbilts be not
overstated, it amounts to nearly $200,000,-
000.. With this sum they could purchase 312
tons of gold and have something leftover,
but they couldn't buv teutons of gallium,
that rare metal being worth $3,250 an
ounce. With this metal the highest price
is reached, and it may well be called the
rarest and most precious of metals.
Giucinum is worth s3soperounce;ialium,
$158; iridium, $658 a pound; lanthanium,
$175, aid lithium $169 per ounce. N obium
costs $l3B per ounce; osmium, palladium,
platinum, potassiu n and rhodium bring re
spectively $640, S4OO, $l3O, $33 and $513 per
pound. Strontium costs $l2B an ounce;
tantmm, $144; telurium, $9; thorium,
$372; vanadium. $330; vitrium, $144; and
zirconium $250 an ounce.
Thus we see that the commonly received
opinion as to what are the most precious
metals is quite erroneous. Barium is more
than four times as vaiuabl as gold, and gal
lium more than 162 times as costly, while
many of the metals are twice and thrice as
valuable. Aluminum, which now costs $8
or $9 a pound, will eventually be produced
as cheaply as steel. When this can be done
it will push the latter metal out of a great
many of its present uses, as it poss-s-es
great strength, toughness, and elasticity,
with extreme lightness of weight. Its
sources of supply are inexhaustible, and its
present high cost arises from the difficulty
of it? extraction in a metallic form. I ,aium
seems to be chief!/used for pointing gold
pens, and many of the metals mentioned
have but a limited sphere of usefulness.
BRICE’S EXPENSIVE CANE,
The Stick That President Cleveland
Gave Him on Election Day.
From the Washington Post.
It leaks out that during his recent visit to
Washington, when he and Mrs. Brice were
guests at the white house, the chairman of
the democratic national executive commit
tee was presented with a cane inscribed,
“From Grover Cleveland to Calvin S. Brice,
Washington, November 6, 1888.”
It is a malacca stick, handsomely mounted
in gold, and the date, it will be observed, is
that on which the last presidential election
was held. Mr. Brice prizes the gift ver v
highly, and has placed it in a glass case,in
his parlor, where it can be seen but not
handled by his friends. He is considerable
of a wag, and is merciless wheu any of his
chums get where he cau have a little sport
with them, so that they are glad of a chance
to tease him. The standing joke, therefore,
is to ask Brice what that cane cost him.
He smiles a Knowing sort of smile aud
“You needn’t worry about its cost, for it
is worth every cent I paid for it.”
Nobody knows just how much the late
campaign cost Mr. Brice, but it was some
thing over SIOO,OOO. His original contribu
tion to the democratic campaign fund was
$50,000, and he kept drawing checks when
ever the treasury got low as fast as Mr.
Cauda called for money. Then, when it
was all over, there were a lot of bills to be
settled, aud nobody else to pay them. Toe
committee of a defeated pan y always have
to buy a lot of dead horses when the election
Mr. B ice has recently confessed to his
friends'that it was Mrs. Cleveland who in
duced him to accept t o cnaii manship. He
did not wait, it, and his friends and business
associates all protested again C his taking
charge of the campaign. He cams to
Washington and talked the matter over
with the Pro-iden', who urged him to ac
eetp, but he declined to do so until Mrs.
Cleveland added her powers of persuasion.
