Since work was begun on the Hudson River trolley tunnel two weeks ago, great progress has been made. Daily ex tra forces of men are being put to work, and now it is said as many as 250 en gineers, electricians, steamtnters and la borers arc working. The New York opening is now about 100 fet nearer to Jersey City. That much clay has been dug out. The New York side is worked from the foot of Morton street. Here during the past few days the engineers were obliged to put into use heavy machinery for the purpose of drilling stone. Since the story was made public two weeks ago that the laborers employed in the tunnel were taken out suffering from “the bends,” doings at the Jersey side of the tunnel have been kept very secret. No one except the employes is allowed inside the big shed that covers the shaft leading down to the mouths of both the north and south tunnels. A few days ago an artist and photo grapher for a Western magazine on ma chinery was refused admission into the shed and employes about the place were threatened with discharge if they talked with him or photographers or reporters for any other paper. It is said that hardly a day passes but some laborer is taken out suffering from the bends.

There are six species of English heath, not counting the Ling: six miracles of pink and purple and dulcet honeyscent. Sweet arc the uses of them all; ale and brooms are not their sum total. The Northern cottager knows their worth; still, as iu the “Lady of the Lake,’’ “withered bcadtli and rushes dry” are his roof, and his walls are of binck earth combined with heather. He makes his bed of heath, lie twines his ropes of it; lie dyes his yarn and wool a golden yel low in a decoction of young heather twigs. This plant of royal purple is es sentially the poor sunn's plant; growing where nothing else will, hardy against all weathers, limitless in profusion, it suports him with the means of shelter, rest and fuel. In the Northern hemi sphere it is but a shadow, in extent, si:: and variety, of what it ntains elsewhere; in Cape Colony alone there arc nearly 30U species, and in southern latitudes It becomes arborescent.—Temple Bar. .-a.

MANY SHORT SPEECHES Capt. Hutton Praises Mr. Dav is, Mr. McDermott, Free holder Elect Clark and Other Winners. After the regular meeting of the Elev enth Ward Democratic Club in Groes cliel’s Assembly Rooms, Oakland and Beacon avenues, last night, the members enjoyed a spread, during which there was speech making, interspersed with vocal and instrumental music. The speeches, naturally, were of a jubilant character over the success of the ward candidates at the election Tuesday. John Zeller had been invited to attend, but was not present. Allan Benny was to liave been present, but went to Sulli van county, N. Y., to rest after his hard campaign. Freeholder-elect Luke Clark occupied the place of honor. Alderman Menges, re-elected, was present awhile. He appeared to be in the best of health and spirits, but became suddenly indisposed and was obliged to leave for home. Alderman White, his colleague, expressed Mr. Menge’s regrets. THOSE PRESENT. Surrogate James T. Lillis, president of the clul), presided. All the committee men were present and the recent cam paign committee, composed of Alderman White, George Hofmann, John Dunne, John Lillis, George Landmehr, Captain W. J. Hutton and A. E.

There were also prominent among those around the festive board, Justice of the Peace George Maes, John Bott, Ed ward Kelly, Harry Heller, ex-Assembly man P. J. Flemming, of the Second ward and John Crudden. While the banquet was waiting Presi dent Lillis, after thanking the members for their loyal and enthusiastic work during the campaign, called upon Captain William J. Hutton for a speech. The captin first alluded to the splen did showing made by the club and said the whole result showed forcibly what a united Democracy in the county could do. He attributed the result principally to the fact that the party had an excep tionally clean set of candidates in the field. Allan Benny’s record as the friend of the workingman was touched upon by the captain, who said the party was proud of him. He alluded to Mr. Zeller as “our neighbor,” and said his record was clean. CAPTAIN HUTTON’S PRAISE. “A better citizen,” said Captain Hut ton, “never lived in the Eleventh ward than Freehelder-elect Clark. He em ploys a-lot of men. He never fought an increase of wages or shorter hours. I have such confidence in him that when I have a job of painting I merely say to him: ‘Lu*fc>, go look at that job. Tell me what it will cost.’ I am always satisfied with what he tells me, because I invariably find he is honest. I am satisfied he will carry the same prin ciples of honesty into his duties as a Freeholder.” The Captain had a pleasant word for Justice of the Peace-elect Miller and Constable-elect McLaughlin, and closed with an eloquent tribute to the ability of Congressman Allan L. McDermott and Carl Schumann. SPEECHES AND SONGS. Speeches made by Mr. Clark. Aider man White. Justice of the Peace Maes and others were short and of a con gratulatory character. Stephen Kelly sang songs and John Crudden splendidly recited several pieces. Caterer Groeschel. a meml>er of the club was thanked for the fine banquet, the order for which was not given until late in the day. All the speakers alluded to the splen did leadership of Robert Davis. Secretary John Hannan of the club and Committeeman George Hofman are receiving congratulations from their friends for good service given in the re cent campaign. Ho Wonts to Eoaf: This is the announcement that D. E. Winters makes in the Kiowa, Kansas. “Signal”:— “In announcing myself as a candidate for register of deeds cf Kiowa County, subject to the decision of the Republican County Convention in September. I do not do it at the earnest request of a large number of my friends, nor has a delega tion of tlie most prominent citizens of the county waited on me, and drank my whiskey and smoked my cigars, and ur gently requested me to all ow my name to come before the convention nk a candi date, believing that I was the only man who coiiiil be elected—none of this lias happened. I have worked it up myself. In fact, it is a self-made boom, I am getting a little too old to farm, and a little too ambitious to be thrown in the waste basket, and would like a couple of years’ office rest, just to see how loafing around the county seat feels to an old man.” -w English Dames' Clothes.
