A m'ri.nn ease is detailed thit> morn
ing on our lonl page. A young m-*n came
to this city hent upon ''making Rome
bowl." The initiatory step in this pro
ceeding was, ol'course, to gat as drunk at*
he conUi without entirely incapacitating
himself for further operation*. Having
accomplished this iu a maimer highly sat
isfactory to himself he pushed the cam
paign into the territory of the demi
monde, following the path well beaten by
the pedal extremities of that army of noble
pilgrims whose cross bears the motto
"He who loves not women, wine
and song will be a fool bis lite long."
Here, this pilgrim alleges, the natives rob
bed him of his pell, or in the language of
these crusaders, "did him up for bis pile."
The following day be appeared before a
Justice of the Peace to get satisfaction and
his money from the l'hillistines. into the
ear of the law he poured his tale. He had
scarcely ht gun belore "Due dollar and
costs, for drunkenness," met his ears. He
recovered and continued his narrative.
He had gotten to the vital point when
'Twenty dollars and costs for
adultery," brought hnu up with
a round turn. l.o' he had gone'
to the law for consolation and re
dress, and here he was with no redress,
aud instead made to be his own relentless
prosecutor! Can it be deuied that this
Justice of the 1 '«ace is a genius'' Over
looking the law in the matter, which pro
vides that a witness' testimony shall uot
be used against himself, hon will this case
asa precedent work? The army of pilgrims
to the land of the demi-monde can go and
be robbed by wholesale, and if the amount
of their loss do not exceed the "cofcts"
and lines of their crusade they will hesi
tate before seeking redress at the hands of
the law. Kveu it the amount of the lots»
justify the trial they have the certainty of
the rfnes and costs and the uncertainty ot
getting back their property. Verily, the
way ot the Wheeling transgressor is hard!
In his annual report Commodore Wll.

some interesting and encouraging infor

at the present rate in niue years we shad
have an entirely new steel clad navy. The
establishment of the gun factory at Wash

heavy armor and gun lorgings makes the
I'uited States absolutely independent of
other countries in this work. An ap
propriation of $1,173,712 is asked for uext

City OF Mexico, via Gai.VKSTON, No
vember 15.—A party of Kansas City busi
ness men, members of tbe Chamber of
Commerce, manufacturers and merchants,
will arrive here this week. They will visit
Vera Crutz and subsequently the chief
cities along the ling of the Mexican Central
railway. Their object is to study the re
sources of the country, and pave the way
for direct trade between this country and
and Kansas City. They are under the
charge of the Mexican Consul, Mauricio
Bayden, stationed at Kansas City. It is
reported that the mint in this city will
soon be transferred to the control of an
English syndicate.
A lively sensation was caused here by the
arrival of a circular letter, issued by the
Catholic Hisbopof the State of Tamanlipas,
in which he said that homage to the Virgin
of Guadalupe, the Patron Saint of the
country, was not obligatory on the part i f
the faithful, and it is intimited that the
Papal authority is against making ouch
homage »point of doctrine in Mexico. This
strike* a tremendous blow against a time
honored practice in this country, and comes
on at a time when the coronatiou of the
Virgin of Guadalupe is the subject of an
anicry controversarv between the Liberal
and Church party newspapers.
It is asserted here by the Liberals that
Pope Leo does not favor the devotion ot
Mexican Catholics to the Virgin of
Guadalupe, to the extent it has been
practiced, and that he is desirous that the
Mexican church should combat the grow
ing Liberalism of the country by renewed
attention to the education of the common
people, and so identifying the church
with the best interests of the people.
Large numbers of Catholics sympathize
with the reported attitude of the holy
father. One prominent bishop noted
hitherto tor his antagonism to railways
and American ideas, has arnonnced bis
conversion to the belief in the efficacy of
railway, and their needfulness to the wel
fare of the country, and urges his clcrgy
to favor railway building. Ttie newly ap
pointed Bishop ot Oaxaca, tiie state of
President Diaz, is out-spoken in favor of
the spread of education. Evidently a
progressive movement has begun, inside
the church, whose leading men begin to
hold that tbe best way to meet the efforts
ol protestant missionaries, is to reform all
existing abuses, and meet education, by
Protestants with education under Catholic
Tbe new literal Catholic movement
favors the ie-clection of President Diaz.

object in establishing this foud. One of

that there would be more money required

that the prosecutions would stop here, but
thought that others who made themselves

DrBi'Qt'K, Iowa, November If».—A
bomb was exploded in the Iowa Irou
Works, in this city, at a late hour last
night. The works arc running a night
force, and some twenty workmen were em
ployed on a large boiler in the boiler shop.
They were startled by a sudden explosion,
some fifteen or twenty feet away, on the
other side of the boiler. It made a terri
ble noise and was heard in many parts of
the city. The bomb, which was picked
up, was made of inch and a half gas pipe
and about two feet long On» end was
still intact, plugged up with a cap and
a hole in the pipe near it for
a fuse. The pipe was split in several
pieces. Fortunately the explosion was
all in one direction -away from the men.
The dooring and parts of the building
were set on fire, but speedily extinguished
by the men. No other damage was done.
It is supposed the bomb was thrown in an
open window. The works here had no
trouble at all with their men, bnt bave
been running a double force for nine
months. The theory is that the bomb was
prepared by some one having a grudge
against the workmen or else an out and
ont Anarchist. The bomb is now in the
possession of the city police marshal and
the Anarchist is being hunted for.
Fabulous Riebe« of an Arizona Gold
Chicago, November 15.—A Prescott,
A rix , special says: Private advices show
that the recently discovered gold mine*
ten miles from here, on the Hassayampa
river, is richer by far than anything ever

$1,000 per ton, and thousands of tons are
in sight. Two men yesterday with »
common mortar pounded ont $800
in less than one hoar. The gold
clings to the rock in the parest scales. A
man with a knife can scale of a handful in
a few minutes. There is every indication
of the ledge containing fabulous wealth.
This river has pitoduced millions in year*
past, in placet) mining, and on one occasion
a pocket was found which yielded $100,

Annual National Convention at N«>w Vork
New York, November 15.—Tlic annual
national convention of the cigar manufact
urers of the United State« will l»cgin at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, on Wednesday eve i
iug next, and will probably continue sev
eral days. It will be one of the most im
portant in the annals of tha trade,
and there will be au ex
ceptionally lar^e attendance. Over
120 of the leading firms of the country
will represent all the principal cigar manu
facturing centers, which are New York,
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Lancaster, Rich
mond, Va., New Orleans, Cincinnati, Pitts
burg, Binghamton, N. Y., Boston, Spring
field and West field, Mass., Chicago, Mil
waukee, Newark, Buffalo and Key West,
The members of the convention will
represent, from a busiuess standpoint, an
annual output of ntaily, 1,000,000,OUO
The principal topic of discussion which
will come before the convention will betbe
qucstion ofinternal revenue tax on cigars—
whether the manufacturers will favor the
tax or not The leading manufacturers are
opposed to the abolition ot the tax, but are
willing to consent to a redaction of the tax
to a nominal sum from the present tax of
f>3 per 1,000. The main point is to retain
the tax; as it affords protection to the best
interest* ol the trade. Should the system
be changed great rutting of prices wonld
ensue. Cigars would then be made any
where, and the unions would lose the con
trol they have over the workmen so long
as the cigars are made in factories.

Washington, November 15.—Commo
dore T. D. Wilson, chief of the bureau
of construction and repair of the Navy
department, had submitted his annual re
port to the Secretary of the Navy. He re
news his recommendation that two new
vessels of about 1,000 tons each be built,
to replace the training ships, Saratoga,
Jamestown and Portsmouth, which cannot
possibly be kept in service much longer,
and he asks that special authority be given
for the repair of the historic sloop of war
Hartford, at a cost of $175.000.
Relative to the adaptability of the single
turreted Monitors for co.ist and harl»or de
fense, Commodore Wilson says: "They
ere now" a considerable expense to the
Navy, as they must be taken care of, and
not being in proper repair they are of no
use to the country. If these vessels are to
be kept on the Naval lif,. they should be
placed iu perfect repair and In* fitted with
such modern rities ns they are capable of
all ol these vessels could be put in the
s^me state of efficiency as they wer<» at the
time of their construction, at au expendi
ture of about $500,000. This would give
thirteen coast defense vessels actually
available, armed with 15-inch smooth bore
guns. These gons con M be replaced as
rapidly as possible with rifles. Ky uo
other means could the same amount of
money be spent to give the country such a
valuable return."
In conclusion the report savs: "The out
look for the navy in the near future, is a
very hopeful one and with the completion
ol the vessels now projected the Navy will
consist of a number of modern vessels ad
mirably adapte to the varied uceds of Ibe
"The character of the work being done
on the vessels now bmldiug ami those late
ly completed shows that our ship-buihlers
are able to turn out vessels of war second to
none in the world. The establishment of
the gun factory at Washing on and the in
troduction by the Bethlehem Iron works of
a plaut to furnish heavy armor and gun
t'orgings makes the United States absolute
ly independent ot other countries in the
construction and armament of her ships ol
war, and if the work of rebuilding the
Navy is only kept up as it is now going we
shall soon have a navy that
as well as a protection to our country and
onr country's interests.
Appended to the report is a tabula ted
statement of the estimates of the approxi
mation for the next fiscal year. Under the
head of salaries, $14,680 is asked for; $WK),
' 000 is estimated for the construction and
repairs ol vessels; $21,011 for the civil es
tablishment at navy yards; $175,000 for
extra tools at the Mare Island navy yard,
$<>0,000 for the construction of experimen
tal works, to te>t the resistance of ships at
the new navy yaids, ami $.'1,000,000 on ac
count of hulls aud outfits of new ships.
Tables attached to the repoit, show the
exact condition of every vessel in the navy.
This table shows that in three years we
shall have twenty-one of the wooden ves
sels remaining, in six years hat four, and
and in nine years the entire wooden navy
will have disappeared.
The appendix also contains elaborate
detailed statements from the officers in
charge of the construction of the new
cruisers, gun boats aud dynamite cruiser; ol
