WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.— The men
of Uncle Sam's navy are to be taught
to handle mobs. Whether this decision
has been brought about by the ire
quent eruptions among the labor ele
ment in the last few years or just on
general principles the naval ai'thor
ities refuse to say. Certain it is that
the drills are to be generally intro
duced, and the results are expected to
f be highly beneficial to good or :er.
It so happens that a vessel of the
navy is frequently in a port far from
a detachment of the army. Jt might
also easily be the case that something
would happen at or within a hunored
miles of the place which would seem
to require the presence of United
States troops to quell. In such emer
gencies, if the sailors ware properly
drilled, great loss of both life and
property might be avoided by tem
porarily detailing them from vie ahip
"My father is a great believer in bicycling."
"Is he a dealer?"
"No. Doctor."
and hurrying them to the sc-ene of
trouble, to remain until quiet was per
manently restored or troops arrived to
relieve them.
Such is really the object and inten
tion of the drills instituted, and so
sincere an interest is being taken in
the matter by both officers and men
that there is scarcely any douot that
a very excellent degree of proficiency
will be reached. As every one knows
there are a crtain number of soldiers
aboard very ship of the navy, who are
called marines, but their numbers are
never sufficient to permit them to cope
with anything like a riot. T'i-y are
the police of the ships of the navy,
and, although sometimes landed at
foreign ports when a display of force
Is considered necessary, they always
find it necessary to act with the sail
ors if any land movement of conse
quence is intended.
The naval officers who have compil
ed the new regulations have introduc
ed therein a vast deal more of crm
mon sense thi}»~ -is ordinarily found in
'documents of this sort. There is no
sign of martinetism about them, or.d
there are no long drawn out, tedious
and unnecessary movements. The first
of these drill regulations, applying to
■the formation of bodies of sail us c'e
tailed to quell street riots, gives r.n
excellent idea of the whole. Here it is:
"If practicable, each commander of
brigade, battallion or company should
have a map showing £.11 the principal
streets, squares, parks and open places
where a force might be rallied. When
practicable it is recommended to utilize
the services of civilian scouts, or men
'disguised in civilians' clothing, in order
to keep the commanding officer inform
ed as to the situation of affairs in the
city. A few pioneers with picks, crow
bars, shovels and axes will accompany
the command. Squads may advance
along the housetops, or in the rear of
houses, whenaver practicable and
tjK-cessary to secure a flanking position
against a barricade, or to command the
jwindows of the houses opposite. Pieces
(guns) will be habitually carried with
the bayonets fixed. It is essential that
perfect control of the fire (discharga)
of the guns be maintained to prevent
unnecessary loss of life. A few selected
marksmen should be ready at all times,
Tinder the direction of officers, to pick
off the leaders of the mob."
The regulations recite the manner of
forming in various fashions as occasion
may require, giving in detail the tactics
in cessary in forming in street column,
telling how to deploy to protect the
flanks of a body of sailors marching,
how to form that old friend, the hollow
square, telling hew to protect the flanks
jat street crossings, how to form to clear
a street, and, in fact, all the informa
tion necessary for cither officers or men
• at such times as the regulations are in
tended to cover.
One of the most interesting features of the
regulations la that referring to wall-scaling.
As the author of this feature of the regula
tions, Lieut. William J. Maxwell, of the navy,
•tales the maneuver consists of a simpie
adaptation of human pyramids to military
purposes. Says the regulation: "As a ma
neuver, the practical limit of height is fifteen
feet, but greater heights may be sealed by
extending " fR!J principle when circumstances
'are favorable. This exercise will be of
Brest practical value when men are compelled
to advance in the rear of houses where walls
and fences arc- encountered. The unit adopted
Js tfce number four. (That is, four men will
Corju- tiio pyramid, and a!l movements will be
'•The first petty officer mounts with the rear
taii!' of the right four, the second petty offi
cer with the front rank of the left four, the
«thinl petty officer with the rear rank of
The rlel> -center four and the fourth petty
ofll-e"- wit* front rank of the the left-center
tour.' The chiefs of sections will mount with.
the front rank of the center four of thetr re
spective sections. The company commander
mount* as circumstances may require. The
(front and rear ranks of each four mount in
dependently the rear rank mounting to the
■right of its own front l.ank. For heights of
tpn f««t or loss no spefcfflJ equipment is re
«uirr-d. For greater heights a lanyard is pro
vided. The lauyard consists of a piece of
twelve thread manilla six feet long with an
eye large enough for a man's hand at one
end and a stopper knot at the other. 'Mat
thew Walker' knots of spun yarn are worked
on the lanyard at intervals of eighteen
inches. When not in use the lanyard is
bighted up and hooked to the left sling of the
knapsack by means of a small eye worked on
the lanyard."
To those unfamiliar with naval terms some
of the expressions used in the regulations
may seem extremely technical, but little ex
planation makes all simple enough. A petty
officer is any officer below the rank of en
sign, such as the boatswain, the master, the
master's mate, etc. To bight up a rope means
to arrange it in close form something like a
coil The left sling of a knapsack is the left
fastening. A stopper, knot is one which
prevents a rope slipping past a designated
point. A Matthew Walker knot is one that
Is tied about the rope so that the hands of
a person holding on thereby will be checked
should they slip. An eye is a ring of rope
through which it is intended another rope
shall pass.
This«*s the prescribed method of scaling the
wall: "At the first command, the subdivision,
company, or battalion that is to mount first
will be formed in line of squads along the
wall at such intervals that the rear rank
of each squad may form on the right of its
front rank. At the second command, given
when the rear ranks are so formed, all the
numbers except number four of each rank,
rest their pieces against the wall. Numbers
one and two then approach the wall, face
each other, advance their right and left feet,
respectively, near the base of the wall, place
"their right and left hands, respectively,
against the wall, brace themselves, and then
interlock the fingers of their free hands,
palms up, thumbs pointing to the rear, thus
forming a stirrup. Number three then places
his left foot in the stirrup, his hands on the
shoulders of numbers one and two. and then
springs lightly up, placing his right foot on
the left shoulder of number one. his left root
on ihe right shoulder of number two, toes
pointing to the right, his left hand against
the wall; he then turns slightly, and witn
his right hand grasps the left hand of number
If 'on the retreat, the petty officer and
number four cover the movement, firing if
necessary until their turns come to mount.
Number four having grasped hands witn
number three, places his left foot in the stir
rup springs up, and planes his right toot
on the right shoulder of number one; he
then loosens the grasp of number threes
hand places his left foot in the right hand
of number three, and, assisted by the lat
ter, springs up, throws his right leg over tne
■wail and straddles it. •"
When the sailors reach the degree of profi
ciency which may easily be attained, the
army will be assured of assistance that no
militia could ever give it. It has been ef
fectually demonstarated that rioters stand
much more in awe of men who constantly
wear the unlfoms of the government than
of those who they know are only in uniform
for the occasion. It is no reflection on the
skill or bravery of the militia, but simply a
condition which exists.
Nothing Significant in His Depart
ure From Cuba.
HAVANA, Sept. 4.— Gen. Fitzhugh
Lee, the United States consul general,
accompanied by his son and private
secretary, will embark this afternoon
on board the Ward line steamer Se
guarano, bound for New xork. When
questioned to his apparently sudden
departure from Cuba, d*n. L^e sa ; d
his leaving Havana had no signifi

Grand Parade the Feature of the
Opening: Day.
KANSAS CITY. Sept. 4.— A grand
parade of horse flesh, drawing stylish
equipages of every description, and
driven by devotees of the animal from
ten different states, or carrying smart
ly gowned riders of both sexes, was
the principal attraction at Fairmont
park this afternoon when the third an
nual horse show opened at 2 o'clock.
The parade was composed of the best
display of handsome horses and costly
turnouts ever witnessed in this part
of the country, while the grandstand
and boxes contained a wealth of
beauty and fashion from this as Avell
as many other cities. Frederick Bron
son, of New York; W. Stanton Elliott,
of New York; C. E. Quinton, of Tren
ton. N. J., and Dr. Turnbull, of Phila
delphia, were among the judges who
decided the points in the eight classes
on the programme for the first day.
A detachment of cavalry from Fort
RiU*y, Kan., gave an exhibition of skill
in riding, shooting and athletic exer
cises, and Sig. Liberati, the cornetist,
rendered several numbers. The show
will last a week, and the heavy ad
vance sale of seats indicates it will
prove successful beyond the directors'
To Get Rid of Flies.
To coax flies out of the house a fly trap
dealer recommends: a tar the tops of the
screen doors and window screens punch sev
eral holes from the inside witli some instru
ment about the size of a 't~r. pencil thus
leaving slightly funncl-shxped apertures, hav
ing a rough jagged edge on the outside. This
renders it Impossible for the flies to enter
through these holes, while the flies which
have strayed into the house tne first time
they light on one of the .screens crawl to
the upper part and, seeing the^e holes, imag
ine t.'ierp is some place -^here they are not
wanted on the other side and oui they go.

CHICAGO Sept. 4.— Wheat recovered exact
ly haif of yesterday's l%c decline today. The
tone of the foreign markets, which caused
the decline yesterday, was also responsible
in a great degree for today's advance. Corn
and oats followed wheat and advanced \[email protected]£
each. Provisions, however, were heavy and
wound up the day with slight declines. Trad
ing in wheat was, with prices, confined to a
narrow range. The market opened strong
at [email protected]%c for December, an advance of [email protected]
l%c over yesterday's closing price. Liverpool
showed substantially no change, notwithstand
ing a l%c decline here yesterday. New York
reported a large business done for export to
day; the quantity being placed as high as 602,
--050 bu, 416,000 bu of it from New York direct
and 204,000 bu from outports. The week's
clearances of wheat and flour from both
coasts, as reported by Bradstreet's, were
1,268,247 bu. These were the most prominent
features of the early news and were presuma
bly the reasons for the strong opening. There
was enough realizing at the opening advance
to send the price down to 93% c, when a
gradual recovery took place, the market
reaching 93% cby 11:30 o'clock. The Missouri
state crop report was a bullish statement,
giving the yield at 9,654,000 bu, compared
with 12,100,000 bu the year before. The news
from the Northwest was also suggestive of an
even poorer crop of spring wheat than, has
hitherto been believed in, especially as re
gards the quality of the new wheat. The
world's shipments of wheat and flour to
Europe this week 'are estimated by Beer
bohm's at. 8.000.000 bu. Chicago receipts were
315 cars, only 29 of them contract, and 22 of
these No. 2 spring. Minneapolis and Duluth
received only 480 cars against 1,170 the cor
responding day of 1896. The continental mar
kets did not show much change. Paris re
ported a decline of 15c and Antwerp and ad
vance of I2V2C. Clearances today were re
ported at 610,000 bu. The local shipping de
mand was at a standstill, which fact some
what militated against the bulls. December
was selling at 93% cat the close.
Corn was slow, but steady. Cables were
unchanged. Seaboard clearances 500, 0u0 bu.
Local receipts were posted at 1,045 cars. De
cember opened higher, ato'l'^iSS^ic,
sold between 32% c and 32% c, and closed at
[email protected]%c. Oats were quiet and practically
Jeatureless. December sold between 20% c
and 20% c, closing at the latter figure, an ad
vance of %@i4c. Provisions dull and a shade
lower. At the close pork was Vfap lower; lard
about 5c lower, and December ribs nominally
5c lower, at $5.05. Estimates for Monday
Wheat, 450 cars; corn, 2,100 cars; oats, 425

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 4.— Wheat opened
strong this morning on encouraging cables.
Liverpool was reported as steady at yester
day's closing prices. This was interpreted
to mean a very strong position after our
break of 2c per bu yesterday. When, too,
the recent advance is considered the trade la
doubly assured that there is something in
wheat out ef the ordinary and that the long
side of it is the best side. Trading on the
whole today was rather light and largely
composed of the evening up order pending the
holiday. All exchanges will be closed Mon
day in honor of labOT. Crop reports are very
conflicting from the Northwest and as usual
we hear more about the poor yields than we
do of the good ones, and for the reason
that the man who is disappointed makes It
known, whereas the other fellow keeps quiet.
September wheat opened at 91c, being Vie
better than yesterday, advanced to 91%e, lost
Vie by 11 a. m., and closed at 91 *4c. Decem
ber wheat opened at 90c. against- SS%c yester

The demand for cash wheat was very good
for all grades. New No. 1 northern sold at
a premium of S^g-lc over December and
old No. 1 northern at [email protected]%c over December.
No. 2 new sold mostly at lc under Decem

NEW YORK, Sept. 4.— The week closed with
quieter conditions prevailing in all grades,
though the tone is well sustained in "both
cotton and woolen goods. Staple cottons are
quiet, but firm. Print cloths show great
strength, and both at Fall River and Provi
dence, the sales have been very firm and the
market well sustained at 2%c. Prints are
strong and active.
NEW YORK. Sept. 4.— The market held re
markably steady today, considering the fact
that a Sunday and a holiday are to intervene
before the resumption of trading, and that
realizing has been on quite a large scale all
week. There was liquidation in progress to
day, without doubt, but not on a heavy scale,
and offerings were well absorbed by the large
j commission houses buying. London a'si/
j bought quite freely in this market of the in
j ternationals, ar.d a buoyant tane was report
ed for Americans on the London exchange.
Some of the large operators, who have been j
a recent dominant factor in the market, did
not share in the dealings today, and one stock
was pushed into sensational prominence as a
prop to the market, as has been the case on
I each day ihis week. The" advance in North
i crn Pacific issues did, however, give evidence
I of manipulation. The stocks lagged in the
recent general advance, owing to the poor
showing of earnings. The motive assigned
for today's advance was the benefit to result
| to the road from the clause of the tariff law,
I levying a discriminating tax on foreign goods
{ brought into the country through a contig
uous country.
The market was under considerable press
ure after the opening on offerings to realize,
and declines were general throughout the list,
extending to a point in Northwest and Can
ada Southern and % in Missouri Pacific. The
market was rallied by the advance in the
Northern Pacific issues, Sugar and Missouri
Pacific. Sugar rose 1% after a heavy open
ing; Missouri Pacific advanced 1% from the
low point on the report of its earnings for
the fourth week in August, which showed a
gain of $270, 000 over the corresponding week
last year. The extreme rise in Northern Pa
cific preferred was 1% on sales of 39,000
shares, leading the lists. St. Paul moved
narrowly and below last night's close all day.
Wabash common and preferred were strong
on the August statement, showing a gain of
$154,549 in gro^s earnings. Statements of
railway earnings published during the day
were uniformly favorable and the excellent
bank statement sustained the list. The clos
ing showed net changes mixed. Omaha and
St. Paul, of the grangers, were fractionally
lower. The co-alers, as a group, displayed
strength, Lackawana, New Jersey Central
ar.d Delaware & Hudson all rising over a
point, and the Reading issues a fraction.
Total sales of stocks today were 303,555
shares, including: Atchison preferred. 7,920;
Missouri Pacific, 12.5GG; New York Central,
5 020- Northern. Pacific, 5,310; Northern Pa
cific preferred. 39,750; Reading. 21,000; Rock

Abraham Slimmer Devotes His
Great Fortune to Charity.
lowa has a philanthropist who has given
more than $1,000,000 to charity. He is Abra
ham Slimmer and he lhes in Waverly, where
Ye has resided for the last 35 years. Mr.
Slimmer, at the age of 62, is still a bache
lor. Having no family of his own to make
happy, he has lavished his wealth upon dis
tant relatives and unfortunate strangsrs who
were deserving of aid. His benefactions have
been distributed with a most impartial hand
to all creeds and all races alike.
Mr. Siimmer is a native of Posen, Ger
many, and came to America when a mere
youth without money and without friends
By unflagging industry, however, he was
able to accumulate enough money to get a
good start toward wealth. He went to lowa
in 18C2 and began trading in cattle. In this
business he was signally successful, attend
ing personally to the details of the work
and enduring all sorts of hardships.
Some years ago Mr. Slimmer built for
himself on a beautiful site overlooking Wav
erly one of the handsomest residences in that
part of the state. The extensive grounis
which surround it he beautified in an artistic
manner and at great expense. There he
lived, not alone, for it was seldom that he
did not have in his magnificent big home
several persons who were the temporary re
cipients of his charity. About three years
ago he handed over to the supervisors of
the county a deed for the entire estate as a
home for the deserving poor, only Btipulat-

ing that the inmates were to be admitted

Mr. Slimmer also gave $50,000 toward found
ing the home for aged Jews on the corner
of Sixty-second street and Drexel avenue,
Chicago. He gave a like sum to the Finley
hospital in Dubuque, and on condition that
the citizens of Dcs Moines shall raise a like
sum he offers to give $50,000 for a home for
aged people to be located in tß'at city.

Miss Ilt-iiim iiii;* Whs a Spaniard.
Anita Florence Hemmings. the Boston girl
who has stirred up such a sensation by dar
ing to complete a course at exclusive Vassar
when she knew that there was negro blood in
her veins, is a handsome, modest and refined
young woman. Both her mother and father
are mulattoes, the father of each being white.
j Miss Heromings herself shows few traces of
her black ancestors. She is a decided bru
nette, but her b'.ack hair is as straight as
that of an Indian's, and it was supposed by
most of her college mates that she was a
The Hemmings have lived in Boston for
twenty-five years. Anita was always a stu
dious girl. She attended the Boston grammar
Echool and was afterward graduated from the
girls' high school. Then she expressed a
desire to go to co'lege. Vassar was her choice,
and there she went. Mr. Hemmings denies
the report that a wealthy lady who had taken
an interest in Anita paid the bills. He says
he paid them himself, as he was amply able
to do. Anita did not think it necessary to
announce that her parents were ruulattoes.
and no one suspected that she was not of
pure Caucasian blocd.
Miss Hemmings' friends say that the report
that she waa a reigning social favorite at
Vassar is an exaggeration. She was modest
and retiring, making few friends and not
seeking to take a prominent part in social
life. Her pure, sweet soprano voice won for
her a place in the college glee club, but she
did not belong to any other of the various
college societies. Miss Hemmings spent her
summers at Cottage City, where she was re
ceived in the best of society. The fact that
there is a trace of Ethiopian bl'io«l in her
veins was discovered after she left college
by the pub'.ieation, in a Boston paper, of aa
item concerning her brother, who was re
cently graduated from the Massachusetts In
•titute of Technology.
