The Presbyterian Ministerial Union met
in Calvary Church yesterday morning, Rev.
W. H. McFarhmd presiding. Key. W. A.
Sample, D.D. , was re-elected President for
the ensuing month.
Discussion was resumed on " Religion
and Morality in the Public Schools." Dr.
Eraser advised encouraging and fostering
private schools in which religion is taught.
Dr. Stewart opposed anything like a union
of church and state in educational matters,
and favored religious instruction by private
enterprise and at private expense. Rev.
Mr. Lounsbury considered that a point in
morality had been gained in public schools
siuce the days when Bible-teaching was ac
companied by a liberal use of the ferrule
and cowhide. Key. Mr. Stevenson cited a
case of dismissal of a teacher iv Montana
who was a Christian and the appointment
of a successor who taught the doctrine of
an impersonal God. Rev. S. M. Dodge of
Santa Rosa gave his opinion that intimacy
with a knowledge of the Bible tended to
maintain a higher standard of honor and
morality among pnnils.
" City Evangelization " will be discussed
at the next meeting. Rev. H. M. Payuter,
an evangelist from Chicago, will take a
leading part in the debate.

The London Daily News reports the fol

hundred marks to him who brings out Fran
Werner!" Hereupon one Slegginaiin, a
married man and the father of a fam
ily, quickly elbowed his way through the
throng, .and, saying as he did so, "Who
thinks of thalers when a life's at stake;'"
rushed into the buruin;. . pile. : The
crowd awaited his return with breathless
anxiety, and at length the half-suffocated
man was seen on the burning tlireshhold,
bearing in his arms the insensible form of
Frau Werner. Scarcely had be reached the
street and delivered his burden into the
custody of her friends than the wall fell In.
The 100 marks wore instantly forthcoming,
but the gallant fellow emphatically refused

AN ACRE OF ORCHIDS.
What Mr. Sander Hag Done In Ten Years
Aided by Money.
Tear by year already the growth of or

eighteen orchids among twenty-four sprays
of bloom, aud every competitor introduced
them more or less.

Mr. Sander founded and directs is familiar

feet long, and the narrowest 3_! feet wide.
One of them is occupied all down the middle

Mr. Sander's establishment is not yet ten
years old. Its owuer is a self-made man in
the strictest sense of that expression. A
native of Prussia, he came to England in
1807, merely with a view to learn the lan
guage, aud found employment with Messrs.
Carter of Foresthill. There he made an ac
quaintance which decided his career. Roeze
we would not vulgarize such a man with
the stupid "Mr."— took a fancy to him. It
is necessary to explain to the public that
Koeze was tlie greatest collector of plau_6
that ever lived, whose services to botany
ere priceless. His agent at that time was
Mr. Unities of Zurich, for the Continental
interest In new plants was greater at that
time than ours. English enthusiasm grows
fast, However, and Boeze appointed his
youug friend sub-agent iv this country.
Two other collectors, of lame only surpassed
by his, Messrs. Wallis and Entires, followed
the example. Mr. Sander then took small
premises in George street, St. Albans,
which are now a sttccursale of the vast
emporium. There was no thought of grow
ing orchids. The collectors sent their
spoils from one country or another, and the
agent sold them as best he could. The
coup whicii first brought him into general
notice was an Importation of 150,000 Mexi
can orchids sent by Roezc, which filled the
little house from cellar to roof. That is
still a legend of "the trade," for no such
wholesale plunder can be found now in a
world which has beeu swept by armies of
collectors. Then Koeze retired, after forty
years' wandering lv the tropics. Eudres
died at Sauta Marta, and Wallis very soou
after at Guayaquil. Are nut their names
chronicled among the martyrs of orchid
olugy v Wallis was a Protestant and the
priests refused him burial; medical stu
dents came in the night and carried off his
Mr. Sander, however, foreseeing that
these veterans must leave him soon, had
begun to train a younger generation with
Koeze's advice, lt was his supreme good
fortune, if we should not say his merit, to
attract the interest of Mr. Nathaniel
Kuthscbild, and all that powerful family
became his patrons. Such, in barest out
line, is tbe career of the orchid king.— St.
His First Start In Life to Fame mtrl
Isaac Murphy, who piloted Salvator to
such a great victory, 19 a quiet, polite
young man, who never made a bet in his
life, never swore and never was caught tell
ing a lie. His integrity and honor are the
pride of thu turf, and many of the best
horsemen pronounce him the greatest
jockey that ever mounted a horse. Ills
face, like a sphinx carved out of mahogany,
la familiar on every race-track in America.
Murphy is about 27 years of age, nud was
raised on the Hunt-Keynolds farm In the
very heart of the Kentucky blue grass.
Mrs. Keynolds taught him to read and
write, and it is to the reliving influence of
her household that Murphy ones his good
bleeding and his tine moral character. He
was almost raised on horseback, and rode
some of the ll unt-Keynolds horses when
he could hardly walk.
Murphy has always been very grateful to
his benefactress, and in all his contracts
specifies tbat whenever she needs him to
ride any of her hi rses he must be allowed
to go. Murphy is very savinii in his habits,
and as his income for the past five years
lias been between $10,000 and $15,000 a
venr, he has amassed a neat competency,
lie has his own homo in Lexington, and
owns a number of houses there, all of
which bring him In good rents, lie min

MORE SAN QUENTIN SCANDALS.
flow Contractor Sheerin Ie Said to Km
The scandal which In the early portion
of the year was current gossip about the
lease of the quarry ground at San Quentin
has taken new form. It is said that the
quarry does not pay and now It is an
nounced that the McCotub-Ciiambers com
bine are helping out Daniel Mieerin, the
in linen San Fraucisco contractor, who
secured the lease. It is charged that Sheerin
tapped tue pipe that supplies the prison
with water at great expense from the Marin
County Water Compauy and that he pays
nothing for It.
The quarry tools are, it is said, kept in
repair at the prison shops, and the prison
teams are alleged to be employed in
Sheering Interest. It is said, further, that
McComb even donated some of the State's
property In the shape of prison beds for the
use of the quarry hands.— Sacramento Bee,

A VERY BOLD MOVE.
Collector Phelps' Exportation of
Collector of the Port Phelps was yester
day expecting to hear from the twenty-four
Chinese at Tucson, who are on trial there
on the charge of smuggling themselves Into
the United States. These coolies were part
of the lot that went south on the steamer
Newborn, on ."whose trail Special Agents
Irviu and " Nemo" camped so long. Said
Collector Phelps :
"I am somewhat anxious about these
people, because I have been apprised of an
attempt likely to be made to secure tlieir
release on writs of habeas corpus upon tho
ground that they were not remanded to the
country from whence they came. These
are the first cases in which the Chinese
have been directly remanded to China by
the court officials.
"The Chinamen who were sent up here
from San Diego were not remanded to Chiua
by the Court Commissioner, but were
simply found by him to be unlawfully within
the United States and were handed over
into my custody. I had to take the respon
sibility of sending them back to China, in
stead of to Mexico, the country through
which they came. I can assure you that
I did not like the responsibility thrown upon
me and breathed freely only when the Mon
golians were safely shipped.
"It was a great wonder to me that some of
the attorneys here who watch our Chinese
cases did not discover the fact that I had
no direct warrant of law for sending these
Celestials back to China. I expected every
hour to have them taken out of my hands
on writs of habeas cormis. These Chi
nese who nre expected to-night have been
at my request directly remauded to China
by the United Slates Commissioner at
Tucson, who by the Exclusion Act is vested
with all the powers of a Justice of the Su
preme Court In these peculiar cases.
"Apparently there is no appeal from his
decision. .1 think that it would be foolish
on the part of the Chinamen to attempt to
prevent their deportation. The evidence
that they went through Mexico for the sole
purpose of getting into the United States
was so conclusive that Mexico could not be
regarded as the country fiom whence they
came any more than could the Pacific
Ocean over which they traveled, except that
Mexico is a country and. the Pacific Ocean
is not •_ ■•-
" What do 1 think of the threats
of the Chinese Minister that China
will retaliate upon us for our Exclusion
Act? Why, I think that we could very
well afford to exchange our 123,000 Chinese
for the fifty Americans now lv China, and
I understand that they are rather poor
Americans at that. But, seriously, our
trade cannot be vory materially hurt by
anything that China may do, except, per
haps, tiie missionary trade.
"Our merchants deal directly in the En
glish port of Hong-Kong, aud cannot bo
disturbed except by England's consent.
As to the missionaries 1 don't think that
they have been making a brilliant success
so tar of the work of Christianizing the
Celestial empire, and if the work was sud
denly put a stop to we could tiud other em
ployment for their energies."
So far as could be learned at a late hour
last night neither the twenty-four Chinese
expected nor Interpreter Itickards had put
in an appearance.
QUEER NOOK DO W NTOWN.
A Curious Little Store Tint Supplies
Ouly (lenjrr.t jiliienl \. -...!-.
Passers-by on Nassau street for some
months past liave noticed a unique little
store at Xo. 107, in which every article for
sale has to do with Hie science of geogra
phy. The first thing one sees in the door
way is one of those curious collapsible
globes which one may carry under his over
coat and then expand like an umbrella
when he Is in a studious humor. Inside
there aro globes of all sizes and prices, at
lases in considerable variety, maps of many
lauds and all sorts of geographical material,
and if one visits the other floors devoted to
this little establishment he will hud lots of
globes banging from the ceiling, and every
description of geographical goods packed
away like sardines in a box. The place is
known as Goldthwaite's Geographical Ex
change, and it is quite a novelty among new
"It has been my ambition for years,"
said Mr. Goldthwalte, the young proprie
tor, "to start an establishment where map
buyers, students and everybody, may find
anything they want in the geographical
line. I'm beginning to gather material
from all over the world, and have em
barked myself in the business of map
niaking. I wish to have an establishment
where the public. If anything occurs to call
special attention to any part of the earth,
may find here just the geographical mate
rial they need to help understand it."
"What sort of maps, as to quality, have
you most detnaud for?" asked the reporter.
"Well, as a rule," replied Mr. Gold
thwaite, "the buyer, of maps and atlases
seem to think the only purpose of a map is
to show towns and rivers, political divis
ions and railroad routes. Gentlemen call
here to whom I show some of the fiver
specimens of map-making, and I find that
many of them say they don't care anything
about maps of this sort. 'A railroad map
is good enough for me,' said a man to me
the other day. Now, you know the best
maps, though they seem crowded with be
wildering dotail, convey information in
every mark the cartographer has made, and
It requires only a little careful study of the
symbols used to express facts to make them
easily coin pi en si But it costs more
money to make a map which is really a
panorama of the country it represents in
all its elevations and depressions, its big
valleys and plains and mountain chains. I
have considerable demand for this sort of
map, but for those who don't care for so
much topographic dotail I try 10 provide
the best material that is made.
"At present 1 am giving a great deal of
attention to making maps of N ew fork
City and the surrounding country. These
maps ate on a large scale, and 1 want to
make them adequate to the needs of every
one interested iv this city or any of its sub
urbs. Bicyclers, for instance, want to
know of all the available routes, real estate
men are Interested in the plans of towns,
and all the rail and earring, roads leading
to the city. There are innumerable bits of
information that can best be expressed on
a map, and 1 am trying to express them.
One of my ambitions is to publish as soon
as I can a lirst-raie map of the United
"Here is a small pnmt let I have pub
lished on bow to use the globe. Many peo
ple have little idea in how many interest
ing ways a globe may be made serviceable:
that, with a littto manipulation, it is easy to
listen tin, fur instance, the approximate lati
tude and longitude of uuy place without
stopping to turn over the pages of au atlas,
and that a globe may really bo made a time
saving device In many directions. Here is
a little globe on which all the different
steamship routes and the ocean currents are
shown, and of course tho larger globes give
much more detail."
Altogether the Geographical Exchange is
quite a curiosity in its way among the stere
otyped shops that Hue busy Nussau street.
