"How lon}; do stokers livo?" asked a
; Tribuno reporter of nu engineer ol one
. of lin- s\siio;.L ocean racers Unit ply bo
'. twoon this country uiul Langland.
..As long as anybody," was tuc unex
pected reply.
..How do they Uko their work?"
..If they dont like their work, they
get Old-; there are plenty willing to take
their places,'' was the answer. Mut it is
hard to persuade the average landsman
thal Un. stoker's lifo is not shortened by
Confiant OXposuro t?> the extremes ol'
t inperaturo. Ti a ns-At lan tic passengers
who have braved tho intense neat of the
furnaces and visited tho fire room won
di r h iw men can endure such it lite even
for a voyage. The stokers work four
hours at a stretch, hemmed in between
two ion? lines ni' furnaces that koop Hm
temperature ordinarily at 120 degrees,
sometimos scuding it' as lUgh as 100.
The space lu tween the furnaces is so
narrow that when thc men throw in coal
they must take care when they swing
back their shovel:, hst they should burn
their arms on the furnace 'in hind them.
Toe only means of ventilation is one
lurge air pipe that reacias down into tho
centre of tho stokers* quarters, and on
a big steamer tho men have to take the
air in batches. Ou a great ocean steam
er like tho Umbria, tho nu n como on in
gangs of eighteen stokers und twelve
coal passers, and tin; "watch" lasts four
hour;. The Umbria has 72 furnaces,
whick require nearly 000 tons of coal a
day, at n cost of almost $20,000 per voy
age. One hundred and four men aro
employed io m.m the furnaces, and thoy
li.ive enough to ?lo. They include tho
chic! engineer, his three assistants, and
ninety stokers and coal passers.
The Stoker comes on to work wearing
only a thin undershirt, light trousers
R ui wooden shoos. * hi the Umbria each
stol;, r tends four furnaces. Ile Hrst
mk -open the furnaces, tosses in the
coal, and then cleans the filo; thal is,
pries tho coal apart with a heavy iron
har, in order that the lire may burn free
ly. Ile rushes from one furnace to
another, spending perhaps two or three
minute s at ? ach. Then lie dashes to tho
air pipe, takes his turn at cooling off,
and waits for another call to his furnace,
which eomes speedily. When the
..watch" is over, the men bim file oil',
dripping with sweat from head to foot,
through lon;;, cold galleries to the fore
castle, where they turn in for eight
hours. Four hours of scorching and
eight hours' sleep make up th?; routine
ol a stoker's life- ?>n a voyage.
The reporter ran across a group of
stokers in Wi st Street, and had a ebal
with one of them. "1 wont to sen as a
coal passer when I was fourteon years
old," he said. "Thon I gi t to be a
stoker, ami I um now twenty-eight."
The speaker was about six foot iii bought,
and weighed 180 pounds or more. Hit
face was nellly w ith health, and his oyof
beamed with good nature. His robust
appearance was in strong Contrast to thal
of some of his mates who had just land
ed from a voyage, a pale, streaked out,
listless-looking set of men.
"How do we stand the work'.' Wei
enough if we get plenty to eat. But tin
work is terribly hard, all the same, ll
comes hardest, of course, on those win
don't follow it regularly. They ure tlx
fellows who get played out so badlv. I
heard once ol a young English docto?
who came over here on a visit. Ile go
out ol money, and was thal proud tha
he wouldn't send home for souie. Si
he worked his way back as a stoker, am
got a sickness that he 0 tdd never ge
rid of. Hut if WO get plenty to eat, nm
take care of ourselves, we are ali right
Here's a mate of mine nearly sc vent;
years old, who has been a stoker all hi
life, and can do as good work as I eau
Stokers never have the consumption
und rarely catch cold."
..Why do you appear more health
than the other men hore?" asked the rt
porter.
"Wei!, I have been on lund now abor
two weeks, and these men just came o
the ship. You see, when we ll nish on
watch ut the furnaces, we ure just cove
ed with sweat, dirt and oil, and we huv
to wash the stuff oil' with warm wate
Washing so much with warm watergivi
us that streaked out look that make
people think we are being killed wit
consumption. Hut after wo have bee
on land three or four days thal look di
appears, and tho men look natur
again. Wo got more ventilation thu
the old timers used to ^et, but we don
have any too much. 1 tell you, when
used to go down into the tropics
wanted to keep under the air pipe all
could. Now 1 go to England and bac
and have four furnaces to tend. Foi
hours is just about as much as we Cl
stand before the tires, lt lises some
tho men up so badly that when tl
watch is over they can just crawl to tl
forecastle, and throw themselves on Hu
bunks without washing a bit. Hut ot
ors of us don't mind it so much. V
bent our water, bike a wash, and th
have a pipe or two before turning in."
"What do we eat und drink?"
. We have hush, all the oatmeal
want, coffee and other good things."
"How about tho grog?"
"Wolli the fact is that the <;.. ,,
knocked off about eight years ugo
tho English and American lines. 'I
truth ir the men got drunk too mu?
and grog did them much barm. WI
I used to take my grog I'd work j

and got nil tho grog we. wanted. Hut
Dually WO loi lier heat us, as the grog

Thc I'cll IIOHUIIVINIIOII ol a son upon Hi< Fattier
- Tin- Ktiil ol iii.- I'oirtrldf,
Frank ll. Walworth has just died at
Saratoga, aged thirty-one.
Tho young man descended from ii dis
tinguished ancos! ry, and might have hoon
very prominent himself had it uot boon
tor u cioud Nvhich overshadowed his life.
His mother waa a wonderfully beauti
ful woman at tho limo of lier marriage,
bul her husband was ?1 man of dissolute
habits, and was very cruel. Tho coming
of thc baby .' Fra k," did not work a re
formation m tho lather. Al list a divorce
was granted -Mrs. Walworth, and .-he
moved from Saratoga to Kentucky.
hi tho course of time the divorced hu 1
baiul, who was no other Iban Mansfield
Tracy Walworth, began to make fame
ami fortuno aa a : tory writer.
In 187? -Mis. Walworth moved back
to Saratoga and established a girl's school.
Thon hor ox-husband bogan to pester her
with botes, making improper proposals.
Uv- went farther, caused tho poor woman
great annoyance, talked against thc legit
imacy of Frank's birth, and threatened
to kill both mother and son.
Frank was then nearing manhood.
Meliad looked upon his father as only
tho tormentor; of his mother, and when
by accident ho discovered tho real bur
don which was being beaned upon bis
motlier ho grew desperate.
Ho WOUt to New York, where hi:, fal lu r
lived, sent him a note to call at thc Slur
tevant house and then waited in his room.
That was in June, ls7d.
.lust before dark his father's card was
sent up. "Show tin? gentleman up,"
said the son.
The boy returned with the answer,
ind Mr. Walworth walked quickly up to
his son's room, humming a lune as he
Aid so. When ho was admitted to tho
room, the young Lian placed his back
Against tin? door, and drawing- his pistol,
?resented it at his father's breast.
..For Heaven's sake, what do you
mean ?" tho father cried. " Do you mean
to murder nie ? Think of what you aro
[loing!"
The son shuddered. " I know you aro
my father," he .said; " but now von must
lie.''
..Dio!" shrioked tho lather. "Havo
you called me here to murder me -your
jwn father?''
"Yes. May dod have mercy on your
soul, father, but I have none. You have
threatened and insulted my mother.''
Tho father sunk Oil Ilia knees lind ap
pealed for mercy and promised to leave
thom ?dono and never iutorforo with his
wile again.
" You have lied before and you would
lie ogain-1 cannot believe you," was tho
son's cold answer. " Father you must dio.
Say your lost prayer."
An instant later there was a Hash, an
other, and tho father staggered back as
if struck by lightning. " My son!" ho
breathed, gave a gasp, and os three moro
duds finished tho work, the pallor of
loath overspread his features. Ho had
lied at the hands of bim to whom ho
liail given life.
The youngman gave himself up, and
.vos convicted of murder in the sccoud
legree. He wa? sentenced to life im
prisonment in Sing Sing, but in 1*77
ivas pardoned out. About two years ago j
lie married Miss Corinne Hmm lett, (laugh

Senator Joe Brown is as strong in
Georgia as ovor and I notice a Sunday
school story going around the press in
which one of tin: pupils, on being asl cd
who made tho world, replied "Ci.d."
"And who made God?" was thc next
question..
"Joe Brown," was the reply, aftct a
thought.
This same state ol admiration pre
vailed in (borgia while Brown was Gov
eruor of thc State. Ile had been Gov
ernor for several terms ami tl was the
question in the minds of the people
whether bc would accept a renomina
tion, 't hc other aspirants for the posi
tion wen- especially anxious to know. If
Brown desired to run they knew there
was no hopo for them, and if not, tho
man who got the knowledge of the fact
first might gain in thc start and win tito
nie?'. But Brow n is ii very ticklish mau
to handle. His fur is like, that of neat.
lt doesn't rub well the wrong way, and
tho candidates wore afraid to ask him a
question. One of them, however, con
cluded to try to worm it out of Brown's
wife, and, as the story goes, called niton
Mrs. Brown while the Governor waa
awoy. After hemmine mid ht.wiug about
for sonic time, lie dually said:
"Mr?. Brown, 1 undersUiud that thc
Governor does not intend to run again,
and that he is going to give the other
boys a chance. Now, if ho wants tho
omeo, of course wo would not ruu agaiust
him, but if Im don t, vye think ho ought
to let ns know."
Mrs. Brown, who is a very charming
old lady, and who hay i onic of her hus
band's ability, replied) "I haven't heard
Joseph say as to whether he is going to
bo a candidate for Governor or not; in
doed, he has not spoken anything about
it, but from what 1 know of Joseph 1
rather think he wants it luinsoh .

Thoy have long bad tho monopoly of
English tourists making for the Riviera,
ami in consequence, perhaps, there is no
Continental lino more illiberally man
aged tdnn that whioh connects (Hil?is
with the French capital. They have
bad. too almost a monopoly of tho Eu
S'ish trafilo with .Milan via ltheims and
6 St. Gotliard, and this hus developed
unexpectedly both in goods and passen

both. A couple of days ago tho King
of thc Holginns arrived at Calais Incogni

Tho King's object was to judge for him
self whether bettor boat* might not bc
put on the mail acrvico between Ostend

of tho through trafilo that now takes the

OTHKl; STATUS.
Great iulorcst all alon;: centered on thc
oity ol' New i'ork, wherothora woro three
candidates tor mayor. Henry Gcorgo,
the well known writer on political econ
omy, was nominated by the Irving Hall
Democrats. Thc Tammany Democrats
nominated Abram ii, lb witt, whose, cer
vices in tin' campaign ol 1876, anti for
some ternis in Congress, have made him
prominent in the party. Tho Ropubli
cans nominal? ?I Tin o. Roosevelt, n weal
thy young man who distinguished him
self in his three year.-." sor\ ice in the State
Legislature by active olYortsand '.neal
success in reforming long-standing abu
ses in the Government ot' New York
City. Few persons seriously thought
that Henry Gcoi'gO would be elected, hut
that he might re?oive votes enough to
make the contest close between other
candidates, lt was thought his voles
would bo drawn principally from the
Democrats. Doth Deniocratfi md Re
publicans wno conlident of success.
The probabilities, however appeared to
bo in favor of Hewitt's election. Of tho
Mugwump papors, tho t'ost hasvigorous
ly supported Roosevelt. Eighteen out
of twenty-four aldermen cleated aro
Democrats. The city completo, with the
exception of one election district, shows j
the following vote: Roosevelt (30,392,
Hewitt 00,200, Gcorgo 07,090, Ward well
571.
In other States the chief notable re
sults are tho changes in Iho Virginia
delegation, which W?1 stand six Rcpilb
heans, thrco Democrats, ami one Labor
man. 1 n the eighteenth district <>1 Illi
nois Morrison is defeated by Jehu
Baker, Republican owing', it is sahl, to ?
Morrison's free-trade views. ll was at
lirst thought that Speaker Carlisle was
defeated by Gcorgo H. Thoobo, a wood
carver and Knight of Labor; but thc
last returns give Carlisle the victory by
a few hundred majority.
Further reports are given in the dis
patches published below.
