The tug James Bowen, I with the mud barge Admiral in tow, went down beyond the Capes Tuesday afternoon with all on board, having sprung a leak and baffled ull efforts to keep her afloat. The German steamer Albane, Captain Koch, made a herolo effort to rescue the crew of the Admiral and succeeded. The second mate of tho Albano, while engaged in tho work of rescue, fell overboard and was drowned. The captain of the Admiral Is en? thusiastic In his praise of the conduct of the crew of the Albano, to whoso he? roism both ho and his crew owe their lives. Advices received at 2:30 this morning to tho effect that nothing had been heard of the twelve persons on board the tug- may be taken as evidence that they are lost. LATER PARTICULARS. Captain Cannon, of the mud dredge Admiral, came to Norfolk from oid Point In search of a boat to go and look for the remains of his brother, Captain W. A.

Harrisburg, Pa., March 8.?Tin- legis? lative probers into the bribery charges In connection with the McCnrrell Jury bill brought out more sensational tes? timony at to-night's meeting. Repre? sentative Irvine Johnston, of North? ampton county, testified that before the passage of tho bill he bad a con? versation in ti room nt the Lochlel Ho to! with ex-Senator John J. Coyle. Ho went to the room with his col? league, Representative R. Ernnk Miller, ut the lattcr's suggestion, and found Representatives Spatz, of Berks, and Rosenbcrry, of Montgomery, and pos? sibly some others present. Mr. John? ston was Introduced to Mr. Coyle and ho and Miller were left alone with him. Coyle had a typewritten paper, the substance of which was that the Demo? crats would vote for nobody else than George A. Jenks for United Stales Senator. Coyle asked Johnston to sign the paper and told him he would leave the witness "in on some other bills that would comq ui>." Johnston said he refused to sign the paper be? cause he and Miller were for Jenks anyway. Coyle told Johnston, who is a physician, thnt he was not feeling well, and that if he would write him a prescription he (Coyle) would pay him a fee Of either $U0 or ?10u to sign the paper, the witness could not recollect the exact amount. Coyle urged John? ston to sign the paper and he refused. Johnston and Miller saw Coyle subse? quently at the Lochlel Hotel an<| tho ex-Senator offered an amount of money, as near as the witness could recollect, to support the McCarrell bill before the postponement. Johnston said that In his conversation with Coyle it may have been suggest? ed that coyio would like him to vote for Senator CJuny. Miller corroborated the testimony of his colleague relative to thiMr Visits to Govle's room and stated that on their first visit they went to see Coyle In company with Representatives Hoch, Heil and Hers; h. Miller was called out of Coyle'* room and he and Johnston were offered $.10 apiece by Representative Spa;/, to sign the paper. Spatz afterward called Mil? ler aside and offered him $100. The next time Miller saw Coyle the eX-Sen ator asked him: "What It would cost to help him out on the McCarrell bill," Miller said that Coyle spoke about "coming In With the boys" and that people often build ? brick bouses when they go home from the Legislature. "In order to get in the ring and get a divvy on certain bills, Coyle told ns we would have to sign the paper," Miller added. The witness said he was told by Coyle that he could name a price to vote for the McCarrell bill. Miller explained that the paper contained a clause thai the signed swore to stand together for certain leg? islation in addition to voting for Jenks. Miller was never made any offer by Coyle or anybody else to vote for Sena? tor Quay. Representative Holl, of Northampton, tcsttlied that he was offered ??0 by Spatz to sign the paper to Stand by Jenks for Senator and that he refused. N n i lonnl Aflsoelnf Ion or I'I urn hern.

Men Who Live Alone on Barren, Wind Swcxit Islands._ 1 [New York Sun.] Wind-swept, a mass of sand shifted at every whim of the wind, the home of the wind tsods of the Pacific. San Nicolas Island would not be considered attractive as a place of residence, yet us our yacht rounded to off u spit of sand that reached out Into the sea a small shanty could be seen on the rocky shore and near-by a man and two dogs. The island appeared to be about ten miles long, perfectly Hat on top, rising to a height of 2U0 or more feet in idaces anil cut and scared by the wind in a marvelous fashion. After many attempts to land we suc? ceeded, almost at the risk Qf our lives, hoping to see the side inhabitant of the dreary spot. But he had disappeared and we made our way to his shanty? a single-roomed affair under the Ice of the hills near the beach. On the door was the satirical notice: "No trespassers allowed on this Island." Desolation could not better be Illus? trated than by this Island, about sixty miles off Los Angeles county, south? ern California; yd there lived a man who delighted in his surroundings. He finally came Uloilg the beach, appear? ing mysteriously. lie was a French? man, small of stature, with a mahog? any-colored skin, deep-set eyes anil a kindly expression. On Iiis head was a great sombrero-like hat. tied by a string beneath his chin, on his shoul? der he carried tin old-fashioned shot gun and a canteen of water, u cane or staff completing ids outfit. Two shep? herd dogs which followed at his heels were his side companions. II.- was very leii,-. Hi and refused the papers offered him and had no desire to hear of the world. Wo told him of the ending of the war with Spain, but he did not know there had been a war. He had turned his back on the world long ago: had two faithful friends?his dogs?and was not dependent upon anyone When asked why ho did not collect the Indian Implements so common on the island he expressed a feeling of disgust and fear, intimating that the terrible winds with which the place was accursed were due to the rubbing of the graves, as h ; put it. lie complain -.1 of nothing but j the winds, which sometimes drove lilm out nf his house at ni-.-ht and forced him to take refui;e among tin- rocks along shore. That night we had evi? dence of this, as the wind rose and blew a hurricane from the island, in U dear sky, finally blowing the yacht away Into" calmer sens. Sixty or more miles to the south Is the island of San Clementc.nbout twen? ty-two miles in length, where lived an Irishman up to the present year. His name was Gallagher, Gallagher of San demente, nnd he. too, was at war with all the world, though it is but fair to say that once a year he left his island home and repaired to Los Angeles, where he diligently spent his money, then returned t,> live alone for another year. Gallagher preferred his own so? ciety and that of h:s sheep and dog. He never was afraid of their overreach? ing him, he once said. He lived on San demente, fifty miles off the const, for twenty years, and was finally stricken with paralysis, being found by some fishermen sitting in his chair looklngout over the sea and unable to move. They took him to Los Angeli s, where he died. At Santa Catalina Island, thirty miles from land, there are several men who prefer solitude to the world, and have turned their backs upon civilization for reasons, best known to themselves. One of thewiost isolated places of this group Is San Miguel, a small island opposite Santa Barbara. Here a man Uvea alone. Two years ago the Island was shaken by an earthquake. The cliffs fell in, the harbor changed, and a small vessel was wrecked, Twenty miles south of this is an island known as Anacapa, the ever-changing. It in about a mile long, very narrow, with a small sloping messa upon which all the pelicans of the Pacific slope seem to have settled. There Is no water here, so it is said, except what is caught In Winter, and the few sheep upon it obtain what they get by licking the dew from each other's wool. On tili? desolate sea-beaten spot lived a man for many years, contented to be left alone, resenting any intrusion. These strnhge characters are found all along the coast. Tho writer once found n man living contentedly on a roek off the Maine coast, completely ?nit of the world; and on a small kev in the Gulf of Mexico, hardly three feel above high-water mark, lived two men some years ago from choice, men who had dropped out of tlie world, (hanged their names and were dead to the past. Barely are such men criminals. Off? ener they are Individuals who have had some experience that has turned them from their fellow men.

Advance stylos in clothing for men for spring and summer wear are now bolqg shown by the leading tailors, and the young man of fashion are dis? cussing [he subject of dress with al? most as much fervor as their sisters. With each year the question of styles for men is becoming more important. While the women go to Europe for fashion in dress, the best tailors abroad adopt American styles. For this spring and ?limitier the gen? eral styles l.-an toward modesty, and there is nothing in material, colors or design of garments to suggest extremes. This in contrast to feminine fashions. Fashionable garments will be made from some pleasantly effective but un? obtrusive material. They will bo gracefully proportioned, richly and quietly trimmed and plainly finished. No overcoat, undercoat or waistce.it w ill be fashionable which can be term? ed either long or short. Even trous? ers, whose record for extremes has been great, will bo cut in a manner that is bound to please every one, whether wearer has a well-proportion? ed llgure or not. All coats will be a trifle shorter than last season.1 The Hack, overcoat will lie 1. :-s ample, and will have more shapeliness, a feature which In marked in all the sack eonts. The shoulders will be moderately padded, giving them a smooth and slightly rounded appear ance from the nide of the neck to the top of the sleeve. The evening coat will have a longer anil lighter roll, and will be a trifle shorter in, the skirt. \ The double-breasted frock continues to bo the correct dress for day wear. It can be worn with either single or double-breasted waistcoat made from the same material or from fancy vest Ings. The three buttoned cutaway Hack will have the front well cut away from a point high enough to permit an inch or two of the waistcoat to be seen, j Hacks of all kinds will be popular for business wear. Besides the three-hut-] toned cutaway sack a four-buttonedI coat is offered. This will be cut low enough to cover the waistcoat entire? ly. Roth the three and four-buttoned coats are designed for midsummer wear. In skeleton form, with p ickcts on the outside. Upper outside breast pockets are permitted on both coats, but the popular taste seems to be t,i discard the outside top pocket and sub? stitute one on the in.sido of the coat. The double-breasted sack suit, with coat and waistcoat of dark ehevj >: and trousers of fancy light material, con? tinues in popularity. The coat will be made shapely, but not tight-fitting, and will be a tuple enough to hang free. These suits will also be worn in strip? ped Manuels as the season advances. White flannel trousers, after a few sea? sons of banishment, will have a conti st with white duck trousers for the heated let in. The suitings for the season are for the most part clear and distinct in pat? tern without being loud. The cloths are of a more delicate texture than last season. Grays of all kinds, especially those shading to brown, blue and olive, will be very popular and will, perhaps, predominate. Mixtures of quiet pat? terns and infantry blue will aiso be unite popular. The cloths for trousers' and waistcoats are fIiowii in great va? riety and give the wearer great latitude in his selections. Trousers besides the flannel ami du. k can be made of cloth of the suitings or in checks or stripes. The side seam will have the machine-stitched effect, and on trousers for evening wear silk stripes will be used down the side, con? tinuing the military effect so popular in the fall. Waistcoat patterns are more numerous, and greater scope i* given. Bright colors are shown in large numbers, and every conceivable combi? nation of btripes and dots will be worn.

[Houston Pont.] Single tax proposes to abolish nil tuxes placed on consumption, all taxes Unit fall on men?on men and women, measured by what they consume. Sugar docs not pay taxes. Steel rails do ted pay taxes. Men and women pay taxes. When you measure how much they pay by what they consume you have adopted a scheme of taxation that falls on weak and Strong alike, rich and poor alike, that taxes the head of a i family alone more than an old bachelor, though he might be many times a mil? lionaire; tax on men and women meas? ured by what they consume. That Is the kind of a tax that you collect at a custom-house. Single tax proposes to abolish that. It proposes to tnke away from the statute b oks every scheme of license tax. Living would be doubly easy. Tho next step would be to abolish the t:ix that falls upon personal property, tlie tax that falls on Blocks and bonds, the tax that the widows and orphans pay. \ A tax on stockb and bonds is a tax on s^ozs ???'

The single tax would abolish the tax | on Improvements and leave the tax on the land values front which we now raise a part Of tho revenue. We say raise It all front that source. The single tax proposes to raise every single rent of revenue required for the nation, for the Slate, or for the municipality by a tax upon land values and upon land values only. That is Single tax. We propose leaving land In the prl- I vate possession of individuals, with f?ll liberty on their part to give, sell it or bequeath It; simply to levy on It for public uses a tax that shall equal the annual value of the land Itself Irre- ? spectlve of the use made of It or the improvements on it. \\'e do not propose to assert equal; rights to land by keeping land common, letting anyone use any part of it at i any time.
