Would Not Heed a Warning and She li Now in the Hands of the United States. ' The AnnapolU Makes tha Capture, the Wilmington, Newport and Morrill Par. tlcipating Suppceed to Have Kecrulta (or llavana on Hoard Veasel Is a French Naval Reserve thlp, Mounting Ouni International Complications Probable. Key West, Fla., May 7. The big French liner LaFayette of Santana zarie with a full complement of passen gers and a general cargo, bound from Corunna, Spain, April 23, was captured off Havana shortly before sundown by the Annapolis, while trying to run the blockade after having previously been warned of.. The LaFayette was head Ing directly Into Havana and was capt ured only after an exciting chase. After being boarded once by an officer of the Annapolis she attempted to run for It but was ' again compelled to heave to. The Wilmington, Newport and Morrill participated in' the capture. For over two hours Captain Hunter of An napolls, the temporary flag officer, and Captain Todd of the Wilmington ex changed signals. Delicate International Question. After the examination of the French man's papers had . been made a prize crew from the Annapolis was placed aboard of her and she was sent to Key West under the escort of the Wll mlngton. A very delicate International question Is thought to be involved, be cause of the long consultation which finally resulted In sending her to Key West. The fact that she is thought to have left a Spanish port after the dec- WIGWAG TALKING. laratlon of war seems to be the war rant for, holding her. On the question of contraband, of war the officers of the Wilmington are reticent. The very large number of male passengers aboard leads to the, suspicion that she carried recruits for. Havana It is reported that the LaFayette in addition to being a French mail steamer, is a French naval reserve ves sel, mounting guns and carrying a crew sufficient to make her ready for active service at short notice. This, It is said. adds considerably to the gravity of the International aspect of the case Excitement at Key Ht. The arrival of the captured French liner LaFayette in charge of the gun boat Wilmington early in the morning rnnspil a blaze of excitement to run through this place. The general ex pressions of Joy were more manifest when It became known that the L.a ay ette had on board a lot of troops, arms and ammunition for General Blanco at Havana. Speaking of the capture a naval officer said: "The affair will cause a big rumpus, but France has no cause for Just com plaint. The captain was . given due warning not to attempt to run into Ha vana, but he deliberately disobeyed or ders, attempted to steal through our lines at dusk and was caught. Now he must suffer the consequences. Ac cording to International law he and his officers are prisoners of war." Makes All Sorts of Threats. The captain of the LaFayette is furi ous and makes all sorts of threats as to what his government will do. The LaFayette Is at anchor at quarantine, off the naval station, not far from the captured Spanish mall steamer Argo nauta. The tricolor, which has not been seen here for some time, floats in Its accustomed place, attracting much attention. The capture of the ship and the news of the assassination of the British con sul at Santiago de Cuba have caused rreat excitement among naval and mili tary officers here. It is predicted that unless something unforeseen occurs the war will be over in fifteen days or less. The American fleet may strike the final and decisive blow before twenty-four hours have elapsed, If it has not done so already. Thrall Arrives at Key West. Charles H. Thrall, American, reached here on the gunboat Wilmington from 30; heavy, $4.3004.324; Cuba, where he has been since April a. Sheep and Lamps ite- jIe ha(j many hairbreadth escapes. De a short distance south of the dock, and probably will have to be unloaded by lighters. As to the time of sailing there is still great uncertainty. It Is not probable that the long looked for orders to break camp will be given before a decisive action between Spanish and American fleets. "The time of sailing will be made known to everybody," said Gen eral Shafter. "This Is too big an expe dition to get away In a hurry. When the time rnmes every one will be notified." THE VOLUNTEER ARMY. It Will Probably lie Divided Into Seven Corps. Washington, May 7. The volunteer army will be divided Into seven corps and each corps will be commanded by one of the new major generals. Lee, Wheeler and Graham will command a corps in the volunteer army. It Is said that the appointments to command both corps and brigades will be made Saturday. The delay has been caused by the slowness with which the volun teers have been mustered into service. General Joseph Wheeler was the first of the newly appointed major generals to report to General Miles for duty. Both general Wheeler and General Lee will probably command troops mobil ized In the south. General Lee will pos sibly be In command of the first volun teers that are sent to Cuba. Senator William J. Sewell of New Jersey has been offered the command of the troops which will be mobilized in the District of Columbia. HELEN GOULD'S ClUAN ARMY. She Pays for the Equipment of a Large Force of Cavalry. New York. May 7.Mlss Helen Gould's cavalry companies are now being re cruited by Cuban Brigadier General George M. Barbour, In command. Four companies of sixty men each will be recruited. Miss Gould will purchase uniform, horses and equipment and pay all transportation costs to Cuba. The government will furnish the volunteers with arms and ammunition and pay them $30 per month each. Mr. Barbour secured his commission of brigadier general from the Cuban authorities, and will report to the pa trlot leaders for duty with his cavalry men. . Miss Gould's companies will be the best equipped in the Cuban army and pains are being taken to recruit only men of great physical strength with some experience In cavalry service or In handling fire-arms. OBJECTED TO GOING TO CUHA. Mutiny on lioard the Mallory Line Steam er Alamo. Key West, Fla., May 7. The Mallory line steamer Alamo, having on board the detachment of West Point engineers bound for Cuba, had a small mutiny among her firemen and coal passers These men, on learning that the Alamo was to proceed to Cuba when the troops go there, refused to do duty under the circumstances, claiming that the steam er is not sufficiently protected against the enemy. The mutiny threatened to result in a serious delay to the ship s movements but the captain of the en gineers in charge of the troops, took th matter In hand, placed the mutinous men under restraint- with a strong guard and the threatened trouble soon fizzled out. , Government Iluys a Steel Yarht. Cleveland, May 7. The splendid steel steam yacht Comanche, which was built by the Globe Iron Works com pany for H. M. Hanna In 1S93, has been bought by the government. Th vessel was examined by naval officers about ten clays ago and the deal has Just been closed. The Comanche Is 183 feet over all. 16r feet on water line, 2 feet beam and It feet deep. She can be made ready for sea in a short time and will not have to be altered to get. through the canals to the coast. She has made the trip to the coast several times. ABOUT RINGS.

A special Kingston, Jamaica, says that TTnited States warships have sighted off Forto de llanes, Cuba, They Are Circles of Sentiment With III-, toriee Centuries Old. Old !s smitlment Itself Is the ring-.. Among the Italians of the sixteenth and Seventeenth oentarlos It was customary for women to give to their lovers rings which. contained their portraits. These rings were In the forms of two clasped hands, Ira. which a hidden spring concealed the plo- ture. Another quaint custom of the long ago - was that of breaking a ring for betrothal. Such rings were fashioned for the purpose. being made of two twin circles and wer called glmmal rings, from the word gt znelll, meaning twins. A rlog of pare gold she from her finger took. And Just in tne middle ue same tnere us- broke. Quoth sbe, "As a token of 1ot you this take. . . And this as a pledge I will keep for your sake.'' . The glmmal was also a favorite weddings ring for many years: Dryden thus .mm--scribes It In "Don Sebastian 1" A curious artist wrought 'em. With lointe so close as not to be paroelTed. . Yet are they both each other's counterpart. Eer part had Juan Inscribed and bis bad Zaydsw. In the modern fondness for rings Is seen . a survival of the barbaric love of display. of superstition and of sentiment. Tb habit of loading the fingers with jewels,. which Seneca condemned In his day, say ing, "Our fingers are loaded with rings each Joint is adorned with precious stone,' Is still In fuvor with a class In whom tner barbaric Instinct is not yet exterminated, while many a modern belle would like to wear, as did the Empresses Faustina and Domltla, rings which cost 1 200,000 and . 1300,000. And she does often wear, as did . her Roman prototype, "sardonyxese, Jas pers and emeralds on the Joints of her fingers." Such displays deserve the condemnation . of a modern Seneca, but for the rings worn In conscious or unconscious recogni tion of some quaint old superstition or tender sentiment there should be only benediction. Such rings are found upon the finger . of women wedded to the church and of women wedded to the men , they love. They shine upon the brawny hand of toll and glitter upon the rosy digits of the lit tie child. They sparkle beneath the glow ing eyes of radiant maidenhood and reflect . before many a sacred . shrine the "light, that never was on land or sea." They hold -"gems of purest ray serene" for many fond . and loving hearts, and while human loves remain they will continue to be among affection's most sacrod symbols. Phlla delpbia Times. A Courteous Chief Justice. A young lady spending a rainy evening -at the house of an old gentleman wanted a -cab to take her home. Her host started off to fetch the cab. "Do let tho maid go," she said. "My dear, tho maid is also a. woman," was the grave reply. The man was the late George Hlgln botham, chief Justloe of Victoria. Ills courtesy toward women was regardless of rank or personal attractiveness. He would take off his hat to his cook and bow a, graciously as though she were a duchess. A 'man was trying to lead a heavy draft horse along the street. The ani mal refused to be led, and thon the man . made several Ineffectual attempts tu. mount the refractory creature. At that . moment the chief justice camo along, and seeing the man's difficulty extended hla hand as a mounting block. The man put his foot In the hand and mounted upon the horse's back. The chief Justice passed on quietly, but to an ob server tho kindly deed recalled the words of tho Master, "Whosoever will be chief among you let him bo your servant." Ilia courtesy made his manners good,, but it did net soften hi9 sense of justlco. A. lawyer tells this anecdote: "I had once to appear before him In chambers on behalf of a charming client who had some property, but would not pay her debts. The cuso was heard in hia . own room, and ho was courtesy itself. He stood when she entered. I think sho dropped her handkerchief, and he left his seat to pick it up. Nothing could Lo gin- tler than his manner, and I was congratu lating myself ou nu capy victory, but when the facts were heard tho decision camo that my client must pay or spend six months In prison." Youth's Companion. from four been They Muscular Christian. Muscular Christians not only arrested a tendency toward effeminacy which proba bly would In uny caso hnvo been evanes cent, but they brought back to Christian ity entire classes, and esiecially a large -class of English gentlemen, who, In thelr dlfgust at tendencies wholly alien to their tuuipurameuts, had begun to think wheth er a littlo lufutilou of "manly heathenism" would not bo good for tho community. They maintained that piety and joyous noss wore not Inconsistent; that David with his ovcrvlgorous llfo was a better man than Saul with his melancholia; that the life of tho sea and the field and the mine was as good as tho life of the parson age; that there was other Christian work than preaching in season and out of sea son; that, in short, it was possible to lew! the life of an average English gentleman or workman and be a good Christian too. Some of thein went too far in their re coil, as appeared when the controversy over Governor Eyre divided all England but in the main their ideas acted as a brisk breeze acts upon a sultry day, clearing away the haze, restoring health to thn siokly and vigor to the exhausted. Of this movement Hughes was not the soul, for F. D. Maurice, with his salntllncss and his sense, must be called that, but he was in a way its life blood he so visibly lived the whole doctrine, lived it heartily and cn Joylngly long after the force of the move ment had spent Itself from the absence of resistance It had suited his inner nature, all his convictions, all his Inherited preju dices, all his ideas of the work he wanted to do in the world, and he loved it heart ily.
