HE LIVES IN CHINA. AND WHAT Id MURK HK It DE- L1UHTKU WITH IT. After Ten Years In me Flower Kingdom Mr. O. V. Wornnaew VlallM HI Home In Oerniauv Wtaat be Haya of China. O. V. M.irclhacst, of Tientsin, China, is spending a few days at Battery Park. Teu years ago the gentleman leu ira home in Hamburg, Germany, for the Celestial Kingdom. He entered into business, grew wealthy and lust Novem ber returned fur the first time to his old home in the Fatherland. Now he is on the return trip. He will leave Sunday morning for San Francisco, and on the 2nd he will sail for Clnnn on the Del- g"l"- . . Mr. Mordhnest is a tine upeantig in telligent young man of perhaps 30 years of age. He is tall, of heavy mnui, nnn wears a blonde moustache. Although all of his life previous to his majority was soent in Germany, he is tn love with the home of his adoption, and will lie well nlcnsed when he reaches that land .main. It s a hue country," he sniU tins morning. "Uie natives are ciever umi hospitable, and are willing to do what s riuht by a strunger. A mun who has ibility can make money last. The so iety is excellent. A great many Ameri cans and English live there now, and the tact that they are in a strange land tends to bind them more closely to gether." Mr. Mordhnest bus mastered the uwful Chinese language, although he has not acquired the habit of dining on rice with the aid of chop sticks. However he can lide in a palanquin with all the native v'rnce of a mandarin and is thoroughly in love with many of the customs of tin- country. The Chinese are crude in everything. he said. They oppose with earnestness inv innovations on their tune-tried methods aud in this he bus had some per- personal exiierience. He is at the beud of a railroad company who wish to run a road across the em pire. From the first it was opH$cd by the native officials, and it was with ureal deal ol difficulty that his company plained to them the incalculable bem-tit null a rond would be. They liked the old mode of traveling, and they wanted to stick to it. Finally they were induced to give n reluctant consent. That was last November, and lest they should re- .-ot'sider their action Mr. Mordhnest got tit of the country just ns soon as t ossi- tile to mnke the necessary purchases. It was for that reason he went first ti Germany, and while there he spent the renter portion of $500,000 for the pur chase of locomotives and cars. Someot the monev he sin-nt in America, und work n the road lied will lugiu immediately uin his arrival in that country. The home of Mr. Mordhnest is at Tientsin uhnul eight miles from Pckin .ind he acquired the greater part of hu wealth in dealing tn native products. II is also an imiKirting merchant und ex ports wool nod straw braid for hats Asheville. with the exception of New York, is the only place in America where he has stopird, and he is thoroughly dt- liuhtcil with the city. He Clime here lie caue some friends of his were in the citv The weather 1ms kept him from seeing much of the city, nnd this he regrets, but the scenery be admits is quite as tine ns anv he has ever een. IIOINd' OVKR TO C Ot KT. O. E. H.irra.n Ha a Hearing- Be, fore Justice sunuue Veterday The preliminary examination of O. V Hagemnn. who is charged with nppro. priating Sl.fiOT from the firm of Iinrnn, Wright lb Co., of New York, was held lie- fore Justice Sunimcy Inst evening. Mr. Hnurmnn waived examination and was bound over to npiicar at the next term ol the criminal court. The lie ftndnul wns represented by Messrs. Car ter and Craig, and Frank Osborne, ot Charlotte, . F. Oudger nnd Attorney Cobb npiearing for the prosecution, Bond was fixed at $1,000 und was fur nished nt once. Mr. A. II. Doran, of the firm, was pres ent to look after the ense and he feels sure of the conviction of the defendant. Mr. Hageman represented the firm in Asheville. He was the local manager of the exchange rooms on Patton avenue and he has been for some time pnst Lately it is claimed that he has repre sented to his employers tbut he has for warded drufts to them which they never received nnd which they believe were never sent. In nil the amount was $1 007. Mr. Doran came on and had Mr, Hagcman arrested. Immediately upon being served with a warrant yesterday the defendunt hegnn a civil suit against his prosecutor for $-1,000. He gave bond in that sum for bis appearance. Mr. Hagemnn alleges that tbe firm of Doran, Wright St Co., represented to him that they were brokers on change in New Y'ork, while in fnct they were only bucket shop dealer!. This chnrge is sul stnntintcd by an article in the New York World under date of February 26. Under the head of "Bucket SIioihj Raided," the Doran, Wright & Co., tirm is mentioned as one that escaped the strong arm of the law, the proprietors claiming that they did businesa only out of town. Mr. Hngeman charges that in all the firm have received from him $R,0()0 and that $4,000 of this was over and above the legitimate profits of the business, That was the amount, he claims, of the losses of local simulators, and also thut at the firm is doing a bucket shop busl nrss, the money was not obtained legiti mntely and should be refunded, Neither of the interested parties will talk of the suit nnd wilt tny nothing until the trial in April, The attorney! for tbe prosecution claim that the suit brought against their client ii only for a blind. A party of Cbicagnans, composed of Mrs. R. 8. Lyon, Mrs. 8. R. Warner, Miss Warner, Mrs. 11, W. Berg and Sid ney Berg, are stopping at tbe Bwaooa so. , THE CONCERT LAST NIGHT, The Audience Dellssnted and the Library Treaanry Enriched, The concert at the Battery Park hotel last night was eminently a success, mu sically, socially and financially. The un pleasant weather doubtless prevented ninny in town from going, the larger part of the audience being composed of guests of the hotel, who by their presence showed their appreciation of the enter tainment prepared for them and their in terest in the library, of which many of them are patrons. Of the instrumental selections too much commendation cannot be given. Miss Burmeisler and her sister in last night's (lerformance have only added to laurels already won in previous concerts by their brilliant execution and thorough mastery of their art. Miss Kinraid, who accompanied Miss Burmeistcr in Lisit's Rhapsodic Hongroise, displayed great skill. The mnle quartette composed of Messrs. W. Dwight Bissell, Herbert L. Price, Willis E. and Ceo. R. Collins nre too well-known here to need speciul men tion. Thev won deserved applause and an encore bv their second selection. Mr. Bissell was recalled after iiis solo and did even better than he had in his first selec tions. The most enjoyable numberson the pro gram, particularly to those who had not had the pleasure of hearing them before, were the solos by Miss Myers and Mr. Bo wen. Miss Mvers has a voice if singular clearness and sweet ness, hhe won everyones niten tion and interest at once by her harming appearance and manner, and wns enthusiastically applauded and re called. Mr. Bowen has a bass voice ot great depth and richness, and it was indeed a treat to listen to him. He re- received a richly deserved encore. The receipts will enable the Library Association to mnke an addition at once to the shelves of the Library, so that its patrons will receive the benefit of it. Its value is daily increasing, not only to the subscriliers, but to the public generally. IT'S TOO MONOTONOVM. And Hereafter They WlllOel Thir ty bay for II. Jack Johnson nnd Dave Forney, two colored men, were before Mayor Blnnton this morning charged with fighting. The pair fell out in Thomas Lnnc'shouse.nud David used a knife on his antagonist. It lid not cut deeper than the clothing and liel'ore he could try again, he wns floored by a blow Irom a ginger ale bottle. His eye wns profusely decorated in colors ns he stood before the Mayor this morning. When the evidence had been beard the knife artist was lined $15 and Johnson Kill be free uon the payment of $10. Johnson took the stand in his own be half, and in his testimony admitted that the quarrel began over u game of craps and the distribution of a bet. "Were you playing for money ?" asked Mayor Blnnton. "Yes sir." resK)iided the prisoner. "Thru vou were gninbling," said his honor quietly. "Oh, no sir. No sir." replied ohnson when he thought of the probable effect of his answer, "We weren't gambling, sir. "Now." said the Mavor. "suppose you tell me the names of the participants in thnt little game." The prisoner wns cornered nnd reluc tantly gave information of setrral par ties who were present. Mr. Blnnton noted them and they will be arrested. Thomas Lane, the propric tor, was before the court some time ng and lined for keeping tumbling rooms It will no doubt go hard with him when he ugnin gets in the prisoner's box. The case of Andrew Anderson wus culled next. He was guilty of a misde meanor and at o'clock yesterduy after noon the court attempted to mete out justice to him. All of the principal wit' ncssct were absent and it was postponed until this morning. At that hour the same difficulty presented itself. None of the witnesses were present. "1 will let this case go over until this afternoon," said his honor, "but hereaf ter when a wituess is summoned and does not appear when tbe case is called 1 shall ordei' him locked up for thirty days. This is getting too monotonous. HE DOES) THE BENT HE CAN, And visitor Olves Honor to Wheal Honor I Dae. AsiirviLLB, N C, March 12. 1H90. Editor Citizen: I trust thnt a few lines from an observing stranger in your midst will be received with equally as much pleasure as though I had been with you Ions rnoush to give me the right to speak. 1 have been with you now for some months, and having been connected with a Dostoffice for several years, my attention has been, for tbat reason per haps, more particularly attracted to wards the postoffice and its workings nt this place since my arrival. I was pleas- nntlv received bv I'ostmnster cannon few diivs since when I called at theoffice and all houch deeply enKused in his otn cinl duties be found time to show me through his neat and very well regulated apartments, and it is with a desire to give praise where It is due that I say the Asheville ieopie nave reason to nc prouu of their otlice. My business has caused me to travel quite extensively over the country, and I can truthfully sav that this office will compare favorably with any of equal importance tbat I haveever had business witn. 1 was surprised to learn that the vast amount of business done is manipulated by only four clerks. Tbe clerical force allowed the office is certainly not in keep ine with the larse amount of business to be done, and the Immense quantity of mn handled fur it will be remembered thnt Asheville is a distributing point of no mean importance lor other offices, star route lines, etc. Postmaster Cannon informed me tbat by the first of July at the latest he hoed to have bis clerical force enlarged, and then he would be enabled to meet all thnt the public could in any way ask, As it Is at present, with his small force, he informs me thnt the money order and registered letter window is open the en tire dav durina: its hours, from 9 a. m. to 4 p. tn. Tbe stamp window be keeps open the entire day, from 0 a. m. until the arrival of the mail in the evening, due at the office at 4.60, and also from 7 a. m. until arrival of mail, due at 7.45 a. tn., and after the distribution of mail in the evening, Tbe general delivery is open from 7 a, m. until 7 p. m., only dur ing tbe diatributloB of mails, and tbe postmaster informed me that with larger clerical force he intended to keep both stamp and general delivery winnow open the entire dav. from 7 a. m. until 7 ti. in., and also, as at present, after the distri- oution oi me soutnern man, which nr rivs usually at about 8 in the evening, long enough to accommodate parties waiting for mail from thut direction.
