OFF FOR BROOKLYN,
St. Paul Motormen Engaged
• to Take the Places of
AN AGENCY ESTABLISHED
In the Merchants' Hotel by
E. M. Earlie, of Cleve
TO RECRUIT NEW MEN.
Thrones of Applicants Sharp
ly Questioned and Many
St. Paul ami Minneapolis are contrib
uting street railway motoimen to Brook
lyn, N. V, The street car companies of
Brooklyn have sent agents to the North
west to secure these niotortueii. The
St. Paul agency was established yester
day at the Merchants' hotel. E. M.
Earlie. of Cleveland, 0., is in charge of
affairs. Mr. Earlie's headquarters are
in Parlor O. on the second floor.
There were busy times there yester
day. Scores of men gathered in the
hallway, and were admitted one at a
time to the presence Mr. Earlie, who
sat at a bit: table in the center of the
room and registered and questioned the
applicants. None but experienced mo
tormen were wanted, and all other ap
plicants were summarily rejected.
Along in the afternoon there was a
sprinkling of St. Paul street railway
conductors, still in their uniforms,
among the throng. Many of the local
conductors are also experienced motor
men, hence their application for the
work, for the salary offered by the
Brooklyn street railway companies is

to all the new men en-raged.
It required considerable patience and
persistence to ascertain just what was
going on inside Parlor O, as it was
guarded by a doorkeeper and an assist
ant. As each applicant was registered
and questioned he was told either that
his services were not wanted, or else, if
he lilltd the bill and could give refer
ences, he was instructed to call again
before 7 o'clock, ready to leave for the
East at 7:.'50 p. m.
A GLOBE reporter, who entered par
lor O on the representation that lie
wanted to be a motorman in Brooklyn
and had all but secured a job, inadvert
ently asked Mr. Earlie what road tho
men were going out on.
"That's none of your business, sir,"
was the sharp reply, "and come to
think of it, 1 don't think we will want
The first batch of men went out at
7:30 last evening on the Great Western
line. There were about fifteen in all.
Whether any local conductors deserted
their positions is not known.
Mr. Earlie has since last Tuesday—
the date of his arrival in St. Paul—es
tablished a similar agency in Minne
apolis, and has agents out securing ap
plicants from among the unemployed.
How long this work will last is un
known, but probably not for many days,
as a sufficient number of men ought to
be secured very toon if other cities are
being worked in the same way.
MISS HARRISON TALKS.
•LECTURE TO TEI33 EC IN Ml* KG
Tho Universality of Truth— Tho
Instinct to Copy the
Miss Harrison's lecture before the
Kindergarten association at high school
hall last night was well attended, and
gave the gifted speaker a new and
stronger hold on the affection and ad
miration of her St. Paul followers. She
altered the topic announced, and gave,
instead of "Pictures," a talk on "Some
Broader Views of Education at Lame."
The trend of the lecture was to show
that the Froebel idea was the idea com
mon to all great minds, that of the uni
versality of truth.
Miss Harrison asked the question,
"What has the kindergarten method to
do with other departments of educa
tion," and illustrated the answer by
telling how the college professors at a
recent educational convention at
Springfield, 111., left their own depart
ments and came to the kindergarten
room to listen and observe, for it was
there that the enthusiasm centered.
The first claim of the Froebel system is
that it appeals to the universal hunger
for truth. Froebel saw that all human
ity had one common nature, lie said to
the mother and teacher: "Come, we
will deal with the soul in the embryo."
His ideas are becoming more and more
widely accepted. It is no longer
enough to teach a child merely
facts — his judgment and imagina
tion must be appealed to. We are fast
approaching the period when no mother
will be satisfied unless she understands
psychology. The second element in
the Froebel teaching is the appeal to
activity. The spirit of play in the
child is led to develop into the spirit of
work. He is taught to put his heart
into all he does. To do this, it is lirst
necessary that he should feel the love
of mother and teacher, then lie should
be given an aim, or the desire to over
come. Habits are good, but they are
not the great safeguard. The conscious
will is the great power of lite. The
mother tries to smooth the way for
her children and then wonders that
they are weaklings.
The third appeal is to the instinct,
keen in all human being.-, to copy what
is admired. This instinct ranges from
the shallowest imitation of foppery to
the spiritual stirring felt in the presence
ot a great nature. 'Finally tho system
appeals to the reasoning powers whicii
are the bases of all worthy action, na
tional thought is the thing most needed
all sin comes from a lack of logic. It is
at the bottom of the labor troubles of the
day, and it is what keeps in their place
the old, outworn ideas of education. The
question, how to teach authority and
unity at the same time, is a delicate one,
and it can only be solved by rational
study and the instillation of the con
sciousness of universal responsibility.
The child must learn from the very first
the dignity and value of labor and the
interdependence of all humanity.

Diplomatic Relations Said to Me
NOGALES, Ariz., Jan. 24.— A Mex
ican paper, Le Indepeute, printed on
the Mexican side of the line, this
afternoon printed the statement that
the Mexican consul in Guatemala
has been given passports by the
Guatemalan government, thus ter
minating the friendly relations ex
isting between the governments. It
is also stated that the secretary of
state of Mexico, at the City of Mexi
co, had notified all consuls of the
government of this fact by tele
graph. The Mexican consul here
denied the truth of the statement,
and called upon the editors of the
paper, who have since asked for
warrants for - his arrest on the
charge of assault. They reiterate
the truth of the statement published
this afternoon, and hold that the
consul is endeavoring to misrepre-
sent the facts.

During the morning a. private funeral
service for the family only was held at

on Monday next at Bladon church, near
Blenheim, where Cue two younger
brothers of the deceased are buried.
The mother of the late Lord Randolph
Churchill, Frances Ann Emily, Duchess
of Marlborough, wife of the seventh

ln an editorial this morning, the
Times says that the premature death of
Lord Randolph Churchill will (ill with
regret and pity the hearts of English
men throughout the world. His char
acter was marred by defects that
were almost as striking as
his merits. His gravest and
most conspicuous fault was his
apparent want of general principles in
the formation ot his policy and the guid
ance of his conduct, He was ever ready
to light the battle of the day and rarely
looked to the future. His story is a sad
one and not without lessons to ambitious
men of all parties.
The Standard says: "Lord Randolph

The Daily News says that' Lord Ran

He was neither a steadfast friend nor a*

Benton Harbor, Mich., Jan. 24:—
This saddened community has antirely
■riven up the steamer Chicora with all
on board as lost, Telegrams announc
ing the finding of wreckage near South
Haven have been constantly coming-in
since yesterday noon, but the blow that
crushed all hopes was received this aft
ernoon. It announced that the search
ing parly had found a portion of tne
Chicora's passenger gangway, curtains
and other pieces of her main deck and
bulwarks; also parts of drawing rooms
27 and 28, and a large part of the boat's
baggage room. This telegram was sup
plemented by the following from the
"We started at 7 a.m. at South Haven
and found some of the forward upper
bulwarks, went farther north and came
upon lots of wreckage. Have found
pieces from top to lower deck, most of
baggage room and upper shutter, and
one life preserver. Found one barrel of
flour from the cargo. Some of the doors
and cabin bulkheads are found.
is in sight further north." A still later
report stated that the party had found
the forward spar and piece of wood with
the name Chicora on it.
Capt. Ed Stines was about forty-five
years old, and had been in the employ
of the Graham & Morton Transporta
tion company for seventeen years. He
sailed the Chicora since she first came
out. He leaves a widow, his only child,
Benjamin, being second mate of the
Chicora. Cornelius Simonds, first mate,
iiad been with the company for twenty
one years. He was forty years or age,
and leaves a wife and child. Robert
McClure, first engineer, had been with
the company two years, and was one of
the most skillful marine engineers on
the lakes. Ho was fifty years of age,
and leaves a widow and live chil
dren in Detroit. . James B. Clark,
clerk of the ill-fated Chicora, had
been for years quite prominent in Be
publican political dries in this state,
and for four jears held the United
States marshalsbio. He was about fifty
years of age and leaves a widow and
daughter. Other members cf the crew
were steady and reliable men and
mostly old employes. The Chicora was
equipped with the strongest engines ef
any boat on the lakes, being 20, 33 and
54 triple-expansion, of 2,500 ho re power,
rated at twenty miles an hour, licensed
to carry 1.200 excursionists in summer.
She was built three years ago
Expressly for "Winter Service,
with six-inch outer plank covering and
with triple compartments, each inde
pendent of the others. She was 1)00
tons burden, 225 feet long, 30 feet beam,
40 feet over all, costing the company
After viewing the wreckage Mr. C'ra
hain returned to St. Joseph and sent
word to the families of the men who had
been on the beat that he had given up
all hone. He then gave out a list of the
men on the Chicora. It reduces the list
of the lost to twenty-two, the number of
deckhands being four, instead of
eight, as previously reported. These
deckhands were Archibald Bently; Ted
Gearing, D. Bruudage and John Ryan.
The. two firemen were lost, their names
being John Werner, of Sweden, and
William Miller, of Benton Harbor. In
other respects the list as previously
given is collect.
DESTRUCTION IN CALIFORNIA.
Landslide!", Avalanches and Flood
Follow the Storm.
San Francisco, Jan. 24,— The storm
has subsided in the mountains, and the
mail and express through trains are
now running en ail roads except the'
Oregon division. Tho Central Paciiic
to Ogden is open, and all regular trains
are running close to schedule lime.
The Oregon division, however, is in bad
shape. The work train which left Oak
land tonight with 100 shovelers to clear
the snowslide near Dunsmuir was
started In at ten miles below Kent. The
north track was covered with mud fif
teen inches deepiu some places, and it
took all night to clear It away. This
morning the men got through the snow
slide, and it is expected that the track
will soon be entirely cleared. Yester
day's south-bound Oregon express is
stalled at Delta, where another mud
slide covered the track. The few pas
sengers on the train are being cared for
by the railroad people. Ail the dam
age along the road* in the southern
part of the state has been repaired and
all trains are running on time. In many
parts of the state local train service
will not bo resumed for ten days. In
Sonoma county the storm was the most
damaging for thirty years. Bridges
were swept away and roads washed
out. Waters are flowing over the streets
of Guerneville, and residents can move
about only in boats. A number of
houses have been overturned by land
slides and swept away by Hoods. Losses
of household belongings, provisions,,
lumber and farm implements are large
and many head of cattle have been
drowned. At Guerneviile a family had
a narrow escape from destruction.
They saw a landslide approaching and
rushed for safety to the barn. Before
they were well out of the house it was
struck by the slide and crushed to
pieces. The next moment the ruins of
the house slid into the Russian river
and llouted away.
BOAT A TOTAL LOSS.
Owners of the Chicora Aro Out
Chicago, Jan. 24. — Andrew Craw
ford, the principal owner of the Chicora,
said this afternoon: "There was no
insurance, and the loss to the company,
will be about «**175,000, but our greatest
regret is the loss of life. • It is dreadful
to think that so many lives have been
lost. Capt. Stines was a particularly
fine fellow, able and courteous. 1 knew
him well. He had been with the com
pany some twenty odd years, and knew
the lakes as well as any captain in this
vicinity. Ido not blame him for the
wreck of Chicora, and yet it seems as
though if he had studied his barometer
on Monday morning he would have
known the storm was coming. The:
storm signals, however, I have learned,
were not displayed in Milwaukee for
three hours after the boat had left that
.port. - r
"Ihe gale must have struck the boat
about 9 o'clock. If Capt. Stines had
put into port or turned back all would
have been weli.but I suppose he thought
it would blow over, and kept oil. 1 sal
culatu the Chicora. must have been,
within 'ten or- twelve miles of St. Joe
when she was caught in the ice.
- "What Happened then wiil probably
never be known. However, it is easy
to say what might "have been. That
Capt. Stines did his duty and guided his
boat to the best of his knowledge 1 have
not the slightest doubt. The second
mate, Bonnie Stines, was an only son of
the captain. Mrs. Stines is left alone at
the family home at St. Joe."
A", peculiar .circumstance in connec
tion with Boswell J. Pearl's connection
with the disaster is that Capt. Ed Stines,
once saved the lives of Mr. Pearl anil,
his father. Four years ago they at- : .
tempted to cross the lake in a small
yacht from St. Joe to Chicago. In the ■
middle of Lake Michigan the boat cap
sized, throwing them into the water. ,„
After floating around for nearly four ,
hours on the bottom of tho yacht Capt."
Stines' boat hove in sight and rescued \
the men truth their perilous condition.

The York: Baby Deserted by All
the Royal Family.
It cannot be said that the Duchess
of York has set a very good example
to the mothers of Great Britain in
leaving her baby barely a month
after its birth, in order to take a
trip in Switzerland, where she is to
stay for six weeks before she sees
the little fellow again. It is very
evident from this that her views
with regard to the duties and obliga
tions of mothers toward their infant
children are diametrically opposed
to those of the Princess of Wales
and of the queen herself. The baby
remains at the White lodge without
a single member of the family with
in reach,, the Duchess of Teck hav
ing accompanied her daughter to '
Switzerland, the Duke of York being
-with his father at Homburg, and
subsequently going to Scotland, the
Duke of Teck and one of his sons
being in Germany, Prince Francis of
Teck being at Dublin, while Prince
"Dolly"' is staying with the Duke of
Westminster, to whose daughter he
is engaged. Indeed there is not a
single member of the royal family
either in : or. near London, and the
future hope of England is left en
tirely to doctors and employes :of
menial as well as of aristocratic
rank. . .

Mayor Strong's Wife.
Mrs. Strong, wife of the mayor, has
as much executive ability as has her
husband, and, while she does not take
advantage of her "pull" with the city's
manager in civic or official affairs, she
has for many years shown her fitness
to be the mate of the man whose abil
ity to conduct public affairs caused
him to be chosen for the city's mayor.
She has a beautiful home, and her
housekeeping is systematic to a degree.
Her servants are models, and her ideas
of furnishing are unique. Absolute
quiet, order and peace pervade the
household. Mrs. Strong is quiet and
essentially a home lover in her tastes,
seldom entertaining.and spending more
time with her closest friend, her hus
band, her handsome son, who is now
a Harvard student, and her beautiful
daughter, Mrs. Shattuck, than in social
gayeties. She is a member of St.
Thomas' church, and a worker whoso
unostentatious charities could only be
counted by the grateful recipients.
Five Dollars for a Photograph.

number of old-timers in the lobby of
the Metropolitan opera house, who
spoke of her familiarly as "Sibyl," re
called her father, Judge Sanderson,
and told how well they had known Miss
Sanderson a few years ago in San
Francisco. It was a harmless form
of pleasantry, and it did not deceive'
anybody, for Miss Sanderson has prac

TWO MASKED BANDITS.
HOLD IP AX EXPRESS ON THE
COTTON BELT ROAD.
They Make a Big? Hani, But How.
:| Much is Not Yet Known, .
• PINE BLUFF, Ark., Jan.' 24.— !
south-bound Cotton Belt train was held
up and robbed by two masked men
near McNeil at 7:05 p. m. tonight. The
robbers were riding on the blind bag
gage, and as the train was going
through a deep cut Engineer Crowley
saw them crawling over the tender'
for the engine. Before he realized what
was up he was looking into the muz
zles of a pair of Colt's revolvers. The
robbers commanded him to stop the
train, and marched him to the express
car in charge of Messenger J. W. Mas
sey. Massey was covered by the ban
dits, as was also Conductor Harris,
who had come out in the meantime.
They took the money Harris had on
his person. The amount cf money
taken from the express car could not
be ascertained. ";.: ; - ;j .^<"-; . :
Alter an ineffectual attempt to open
the safe in the express car. the bandits
compelled the messenger to assist them.
The amount taken from the safe is esti
mated at $23,000. The watch and chain
taken from Conductor Harris were re
turned to him upon his assur
ance that they belonged to . him
individually. It is thought -that
members of the Cook gang No. 2.
who were implicated in the recent train
robbery near Ogamavv, Ark., and re
leased for want of proof, are the men
who did the job. They remarked when
leaving the officers: "You have the
laugh on us this time, but we will come
again." and it seems they made good
their threat. Tha passengers were not

TWO BANK'S GO DOWN.
Crash at Bing-hampton, N. V.,
Caused By a Defalcation.
BINGHAMTON, N. V,, Jan. 24.—
Bank Examiner Prescott has closed
the Chenango Valley Savings bank
this city, pending an investigation. His
action, it is alleged, was precipitated
by an effort on the part of the officers
of the bank to carry away the bonds
of the bank last night about midnight.
In the same building and under the
same management is the Broome Coun
ty National bank, which was also
taken charge of by "he bank examiner
acting under the orders of the comp

A Gr.-iKpini; Dnkc Is Cleverly
Brought to Time...
New York Recorder.
The Duke of Hamilton is so renowned
for his fondness for money and bis
grasping propensities that it must have
cost him a bitter pang to be obliged,
finally, to pay the $100,000 claimed by
the revenue authorities. His grand
father and father formed magnificent
art collections, gathering together
treasures from every part of the world.
When the present duke succeeded to
the title the revenue authorities decided
to tax these collections as part and par
cel of the inheritance and to charge
the customary legacy duty upon them.
This the duke opposed on the ground
that the collectons were heirlooms, and
that, as such, he had merely a life in
terest in them, and, not being held as a
part of the regular estate, he could not
be called upon to pay any Impost on
them. The revenue authorities tempo
rarily acquiesced with this view.
But some ten years afterward the
duke, being pressed for money, delib
erately put up at auction the entire col
lection, without regard, and possibly
without any recollection, of the assur
ances which he had given as to the
pictures and art treasures In question
being heirlooms. It was only after the
sale had taken place, and the duke had
realized an enormous sum of money
from it, that the government ventured
to point out to the duke that, since he
himself had shown that the pictures,
etc., were not heirlooms, it must in
sist on his complying with the demand
which had been made upon him at
the time he succeeded to the title
and to the property,
j The duke, of course, fought the case,
and, after the matter had been car
ried from court to court, the supreme
bench finally decided that his grace
must pay not only the $100,000 involved,
but also costs, to the extent of $35,000
j Langtry a Shrewd Investor.
I Mrs. Langtry has not sold any of
her real estate in this country during
this visit. She paid taxes on her Salt
Lake City property only a few days
ago. She is said to be a very shrewd
investor, turning money out of her
houses and ranch that bring her in
quite a large income. Nor during her
trip does she neglect an opportunity
for a shrewd horse sale on her New
market estate. All this business, is
done by .cable. Only the other day
she sold a horse for $38,000. She has
with her as a sort of general servant,
but really to look after this particu
lar business, one of the late "Squire
Abingdon's old servants. He is thor
oughly familiar with the horse market
in England. When Mrs. Langtry ar
rived here she had her own cook with
her, Jules Roche. She fitted out her
private car with a new range, to give
him a chance to see what he could do.
But she got lonesome in a private car
before she had been out many weeks
and stored it again, sending the dis
apppointed Roche and his assistant
back to London. ...
THE ATHLETIC GIRL
She In All Riftlit, But Some of Her
! Ways Are Past Bearing.
;•, Who doesn't know the girl who goes
around whacking other girls on the
backs and pounding them in their sto
machs and pummeling them in their
chests, saying: "Why on earth don't
you stand up? You're as humpy as a
Some folks say that this girl is all
right; that she fills her niche in the
world's gallery of well-doers with abil
ity and unselfishness. This may.be
true, but if you happen to be a girl and
wander into the way of this well-doer
you long to Implore her to adopt milder
.methods. It isn't pleasant when you
are discussing the latest wrinkle in
hair dressing to have somebody sud
denly give you an. awful thump be
tween the shoulders and say: "Stand
up, there, now. . If you bend over ■,
much more you'll stand on your head." j
Then you are likely to double up as
, quickly as a folding-bed unsolicited
doubles down, and for a moment -you
may Imagine that you are in the hands
of a patented massage machine or
floundering in the whirring arms of a
It is this same girl that "does her ex
ercise" on the back porch every morn
ing to the amusement and gratifica
tion of a huge audience stationed at
numerous windows. She first plants
her hands on her hips and draws sev
eral long breaths. She puffs her chest
out pigeon fashion and snorts like a
feminine Sandow. After that she
stretches her arms toward a neighbor
ing clothes line, and by that time spec
tators, open-mouthed and interested,
have assembled. A man in the act of
shaving puts down his razor, deserts
his mirror and brush, and devotes him
self entirely to gazing at the twisting,
stretching vision of athletic loveliness.
A kitchen lady trots out of a back
door with a bucket of potato peelings,
but stops midway of her journey to
look. In every other window along
the entire row of houses beams a
face, and as the athletic maiden be
comes more and more warmed up to
her playful and invigorating perform
ances each face grows into a group
of . three, or even more. After a few
mornings of this the shaving gentle
man and the kitchen lady defer their
• individual employment until the vis
ion on the back porch starts up her
Sometimes when she is in a specially
humorous mood she gives an imitation
of Lottie Collins' celebrated rough and
tumble dance, and at such moments
the audience nods its universal ap
proval. Whatever her actions she's
sure of a crowd of onlookers, and even
if her audience does increase daily
she frets not, so long as the faithful
tape measure tells that her chest has
widened almost half an inch after
only three months of muscle-develop
ing torture and exhibitions of graceful
■ |7%^?Sb[- Shoe Blacking?.
| Shoe blacking by electricity, with the
aid of the human hand, has been
known for some time, but shoe black
ening without that intervening agency
is a novelty just introduced in a St.
Louis hotel. The device is composed
of three brushes, two of which run
parallel with each other. These
brushes move back and forth the mo
ment the foot is placed on the support
between them. The third brush is
placed vertically to the two others, and
the bristles of the former move in and
out of the bristles of the latter. The
third brush has a rotary motion
around its own axis, and then throuh
the combined motion of the three
brushes, operated by electricity, a very
nicely polished shoe is turned out.
