The police are inclined to doubt the anthnticity of the story told by Dr. Meyer and published exclusively In yes terday's Herald to the effect that he had been drugged. Ftabbed and rob bed on the previous night while out for a time in the tenderloin district. .Last night Captain Ten Eyck, whose men are held responsible for the well being of the city at night, told a Her ald reporter that Meyer had been trail ed from place to place in the tenderloin and that nowhere could thf re be found any evidence that violence had been I - . . 1 A. n nil1!! a U'ntn9fl ' ruramiiitfii. said that she had drunk freely with Mever and at that time his hand was cut and bleeding. He did not appear to have much money on him. It was also learned by the night cap tain that Meyer had been to ex-police-ma Winkler's place early in the night and left there after drinking a few rounds. At one of the resorts a tablet apparently of morphine, was found by one of the female inmates after Meyer had taken his departure. (tne claims she found it). If Meyer was drugged it is the theory of the police that he drugged himself with similar tablets. Meyer wound up his brief career in Lou Vidal's danca hall. He was there turned over to Policem&n George Cole and by him was taken home In a car riage. Cole and others assert that at the time Meyer was wearing a watch and a ring. Tom White also asserts that he saw Meyer making the rounds and saw him drink at a certain bar but cannot ay whether the man took an intoxicant or r.r .vfost persons are cf the opinion that a man who would venture over the dead line with many hundred dollars on his person has only himself to blame if he gets robbed. The police do not like for reports of robberies in the tenderloin to get abroad unless well founded and they are of opinion that many of the hold ups, etc.. there are simply trumped up tales. Such stories as told by Meyer and others, it must be tonfessed. tend to reflect on the good name of the tender loin. Sues His Brother. I. Blumenthal, now a resident of Los Angeles was made defendant to two suits instituted in the district court by his brother. H. Blumenthal, of Fre mont, Arizona.

Henry Apps of Hoxton completed tbe fixing of the wires on the lawn of Hasleigh conrt. He looked up at the dim light In the dressing room and chuckled softly as he bent the last yard of wire. "A trip in time," says Mr. Apps. "saves nine." lie threw the rope ladder gently In the air, and at the first effort It caught the project iug nail. "Once on board the lugger," quoted Mr. Apps facetiously, as he mounted the rope ladder, "and the girl Is mine." He opened the window very gently and soon stood inside the dressing room. Near the table in the corner of the room was an iron safe. "Well. I'm Jiggered!" exclaimed Mr. Apps. He loosened the flaps of hi3 fur cap and mopped his brow with tha back of his hand. "Well, I'm jigger ed! If they 'aven't been and left the key In it for me. I might have saved myself a lot of trouble if I'd a know eL" Mr. Apps swung open the heavy door of the safe and listened to the music down stairs. Young Lady Staplehurst 'was giving, as Mr. Apps very well knew, a dance, a fancy dress dance, on her return from the continent after her term of widowhood. "I'll Just see first of all," he said, "that the coast is absolutely clear, and then then for a bagful." Henry Apps stepped out Into the broad passage. He slouched, with bis jimmy sticking out of his capacious aide pocket, a few steps toward the stairs. Suddenly a girlish figure turn ed tbe corner. "Bless my art!" cried Mr. Apps. , "Why. bow do you do?" said the young lady, stepping forward. She gave a soft laugh that was very pleas ant. "This Is really delightful. Do you know, I recognized you In spite of the costume?" She held the hand of Mr. Apps for a moment, causing that gentleman to gasp for breath, and called one of tbe maids. "Just bring me a pencil and a card." she said. "I must arrange for a car riage to take Captain Norman back to bis hotel In the morning. I wasn t sure that be would come." "I can walk." remarked Mr. Apps. with restored self possession. "I won't hear of It. When shall we say, now?" "Say in an hour's time," said Mr. Apps. "I can go up stairs again alone, change my togs and do all I want to." "And can't you stay longer?" 8he gave the card to tbe maid and ordered It to be dispatched at once. "I've got a busy night before me," urged Mr. Apps excuslngly. He thought of his dog waiting on the lawn and feared It might give an Inoppor tune bark. Besides, the safe was still open, and tbe diamonds were waiting for him. He had noticed with satisfac tion that Lady Staplehurst was wear ing none. "You were always an active man. captain." "Always a -doing something," agreed Mr. Apps. "If It isn't one thing, it's an other." He shook bis head reflectively. "I often wonder I don't write a book about It all." "I don't believe you will know any body here. Captain Norman," she said, aa they walked down stairs, "but I couldn't help sending you a card, see ing bow friendly we were on the Fe ahawur. Do you remember those even ings on deck In the Red sea?" She was really a very fine young wo man, and in her costume she looked extremely well. "Do I not?" said Mr. Apps, with much fervor. "Shall I ever forget 'em?" "And then tbe journey from Brlndiai. yon know, and that funny little Ger man yon remember him?" "He was a knockout, that German was. "And the girl who played the banjo, and" it was great," agreed Mr. Apps "great," Tbe large ballroom was very full. A mall covey of brightly dressed young people flew toward the young bostess to complain of her temporary absence from tbe room, and a broad shouldered gondolier shook lxinds with ber and took up her card with something of an air of proprietorship.' "I thought I had left the key In the excuse me." The young hostess took back her card from the gondolier. "I am engaged to Captain Norman. You ion't know him? Allow me." "Pleased to meet you," said nenrj Apps. " 'Ow's the world using you?" "That's an original costume of yours. Captain Norman," remarked the gon dolier. "I don't kuow that I've ever seen anything so daringly neat before." "Well, wot of It?" demanded Mr. Apps, with sudden aggressiveness. "Wot's the odds to you wot I like to wear? You needn't think you're" "Captain Norman." interposed the young hostess laughingly, "you must not overdo the part. Look here. I'Tt put your name down for this waltz, but if you like we'll sit it out that is. if you promise to keep up that diverting east end talk. I like It. Do you think you can uiauae to 1 so?" "Itntber." said Apps. "And it is a capital tunke up. Captain Norman." she went on. "Do you know" that at first, just for one moment. I thought you were a real burglar." "Fancy that now!" said Apps. He was relieved at seeing nn obvious way out of his difficulty. "There's noihing like doing the thing in a proper, strite forward w'y." "And." said Lady Staplehurst. v.-Ith er fan on his arm as they walked across the room, "you have got the cast end accent capitally." "Taln't so dusty. Is It?" She beckoned to the gondolier. "Captain Norman and I are great friends." she said in an explanatory way. "Ue has not been long home from abroad, and he knows scarcely any one." "Not a blessed soul," echoed Mr. Apps. "Isn't It capital?" asked Lady Staple burst of the gondolier delightedly. "How much more interesting it would be If every one would only talk to me In their character!" "Well, blow me," said Lady Staple hurst, screwing her pretty mouth in her effort to imitate the cockney's ac cent "blow me If this ain't a fair take I mean like dah!" she laughed. "It's no use. Captain Norman, I can't talk as you can." "It's a gift," said Mr. Apps. "inat a what It is." "You don't want to be Introduced to anybody here, I suppose?" "Not me." "You have beard or She pointed In the direction of tbe gondolier. "All I want to." "He's really making a big name In tbe bouse, you know. I watch his ca reer with great interest." "Thinks a Jolly lot of himself." "Oh, I think a lot of him, too," re marked Lady Staplehurst pleasantly. "And Is that a jimmy sticking out of your jacket pocket? This is indeed re alism. You don't know how It works, I suppose?" "Well. I've got a kind of hidea," said Mr. Apps. "Look ere. You put this end in, and" Mr. Apps found himself getting quite excited In the explanations that he gave. It was a new sensation to meet one who showed an Intelligent interest in bis profession, and be could not help feeling flattered. Ixoking up, be saw the gondolier gazing at bim. "He don't look 'appy, that chap," said Mr. Apps. "Will you excuse me for one mo ment?" "Wot are you going up to?" he said apprehensively. "I want to speak to him." "Oh." with relief. "I don't mind that!" While Lady Staplehurst was making the gondolier resume his ordinary ex pression Mr. Apps thought and thought. The couple promenading aft er the waltz looked curiously at him. "You are In the worst fix you were ever In. 'Enery," said Mr. Apps. "You're 'aving 'em on toast, you are, but you'll be glad to get up stairs agen. You want them diamonds, that's what you want. Time means money to you, 'Enery." Lady Staplehurst hurried toward the doorway. A murmur of amazement went through the room as tbe guests saw a new arrival in tbe costume of a police constable accompanied by a man In plain clothes. Mr. Apps, thinking over bis exploits, gazing abstractedly at his boots, regretting their want of polish, did not see them until tbe plain clothes man tapped him on tbe shoul der. "What, Apps again!" exclaimed tbe man "Yus," said the burglar discontented ly "Yus. It Is Apps agine, Mr. Walker. And vu'rry glad you are to see him. I re no daht "Always a pleasure to meet a gentle man like you," said Mr. Walker cheer fully, as be conducted him to the door way. "I've wanted to run up against you before. . Much commotion in the ballroom at the diverting little scene. General agreement that Lady Staplehurst was a perfect genius at entertaining. "But. loveliest" said the gondolier confidently to Lady Staplehurst, "isn't this carrying a Joke rather too far? That's a real detective, "I know." said the loveliest girl, trembling now a little. "That's a real burglar too." "A real" "Yes. yes. Don't make a fuss. I don't want tbe dance spoiled. Take me down to supper, like a food fellow." Columbian. . A Skater' Darlag. Few feats of skating have ever ex celled tbe exploit of one of Napoleon's officers performed shortly after tbe fight at Jena In 1806. The emperor dispatched an officer to Marshal Mor tier requiring him to seize certain im portant towns without delay. When the officer arrived at the mouth of the Elbe, where the river Is 7"4 miles wide, he was threatened with serious loss of time. The river was Just covered with Ice, therefore to row over was out of the question. He could not cross by the nearest bridge without going 20 miles out of his way on roads heavy with snow, and he grudged the time that would thus be wasted. So be re solved to skate across tbe thin, freshly formed Ice. Had he tried walking he would have sunk at once, but by skim ming along on bis skates at the top of his speed he got over the river both dry nd unharmed. By this daring If dan gerous deed he saved six hours, did what Napoleon bade liiiu do and won great credit for his bold and clever exploit t I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I H I Heard in Hotel Lobbies. I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I Dr. R.- C. Flower of New York, the mining man about whom the press has had so much to say of late, came in last night and is stopping at the Sheldon. A Herald reporter met the doctor this morning and heard from him some of the particulars of the condition of the Arizona Eastern company, which has excited New York investors a great deal of late. "The company will soon be reorga nized." said the doctor, "and the mines will be worked again. I think the company's property at Lone Pine. Ari zona, is almost as good property as Cralk's United Verde and will pay as great dividends. The trouble in the New York end of the company was mischief on the part of certain people who had little interest in the company. They threw most of the blaine on me when I had nothing whatever to do with it except, to sell the stocks as agent at prices fixed by the company. My dealings were entirely satisfactory with the directors and I am going back to help them out of their trouble. I do not know where Ashton is and have no business connections whatever with him. "I think it was mean in the papers to air the matter in the tone they did." continued the doctor, "but I have been in the newspaper business and suppose I have done the same thing. I have no complaint to make of tbe papers for my relations with the people with whom I am dealing have not changed in the least. I have some large Invest ments in the southwest which may in terest El Paso and I am going to put them through If I can. I look upon Mexico as a coming mining country anil as it develops El Paso will profit. I have reveral properties in Sonora which give every promise of being rich. They are not yet developed ex tensively but the work is going on and I hope in the near future to announce that they are valuable properties.

The pri- vate soldiers think that American sol- diers are getting the worst of it in the results in the Philippines. They are being held back and are not allowed to fight only when attacked by the enemy. They all think that if they were allow- ed to push forward they could clean out the Filipinos in a few months. "The country is very rough and it is almost impossible to cross in many places but an American can go any- where a native can if he is only given the order. It seems to me that the officers do not want the war to end. They are making no effort to capture or kill the enemy which could be easily done if they would only try it. My regiment remained in one camp for nine months and never fired a gun only when molested by the natives. We could have cleaned out that entire sec- lion and would have been glad to do it if we had only been permitted.

Mr. Fisher placed the fine metropolitan orchestra at their ' disposal, and in conversation, narrat ing incidents in country newspaper life and listening to the music, the crowd spent the early evening very pleasantly.

WONDERFUL NEW MOTOR. That Vastly Increases the Power of Marine Engines. The British admiralty has done well in naming its two new turbine driven torpedo boat destroyers the Viper and the Cobra, for these two boats are de signed to take in the marine world the places held . by their reptilian name sakes among animals. The Viper, which is completed, is the fastest boat in the world and is capable of going at the rate of 37 knots, or 43 miles, an hour. This terrific speed is given to the tiny boat by the 12.000 horsepower developed by her turbine engines. It is confidently predicted th.it near fu ture will see these turbine o:if1nes ap plied to larger vessels, and we shall have transatlantic liners crossing the ocean in four days or less. The turbine engine is the invention of the Hon. Charles A. Parsons, an ,ngnsnman. it does away with the 'reciprocating" motion whereby in the ordinary engine the vertical motion of the piston head is changed to the re volving motion of the propeller shafts. In the turbine boats the steam is ap plied directly to a sort of water wheel to which are affixed a great number of vanes or blades. The propeller shafts. which in the Viper are five in number, are fixed directly on the turbine, thus doing away with the "reciprocating" motion and reducing the vibration of the boat to a minimum. Among the advantages claimed for the compound steam turbine over the, ordinary engine are increased speed," increased facilities for navigating shal low waters, increased stability of ves sel, reduced weight of machinery, di minished cost of maintenance of ma chinery and largely reduced vibration. The opponents of the turbine, who are not very numerous, claim that It requires an enormously greater amount of fuel than an ordinary engine and that the boat fitted with it requires a very much greater time to reverse. The latter is a serious objection to its use on warships. It is confidently pre dicted that these disadvantages will be removed by improvements to the exist ing forms of turbine engine.
