MjP.?. DO-IKE passed down the hos
pitali tal after, her arms fiiled with
flowers which she gave to the-pa
il nts on cither side, and before the bedside
of each young girl she asked the question :
"Isyour name Olive Meade t" and no one
answered yes.
Finally she reached tlie last bed in tlie
room, where a young girl lay. Tlie tender
hearted woman laid a bundle of fragrant
wild flowers in the eager hands.
"Oh, they bring back my dear old home."
cried tho invalid, burying her face in the
*' What is your name?" asked the visitor.
" Olive Meade."
"At last," cried Mrs. Doane, "1 have
found you. Your old mother has written to
you to ccme borne and be forgiveu. lias
your lover proved false?"
" Is that the faceol me who is false?"
asked the girl, holding out a locket eoutaiu
ing a portrait
As Mrs. Doane locked at the picture her
heart gave a great throb. Another mystery
bad been made clear. It was not alone the
old mother's ltst dulling whom she saw in
"Olive," but ono who had a nearer and
dearer claim in her sickness and sorrow, one
whom she herself loved bettor than life.
As soon as she could control herself suffici
ently to speak calmly she went to Olive,
and smoothed the bright hair away trom
her forehead, w illi a soft, magnetic touch.
"How wns it that little 'Ollie' came
so i.ear starving, and In this world of
"\\ c had a suite of rooms at the hotel,
and while I was nt dinner, the very day that
Kenneth pressed his last kiss on thesi. lips,
■ thiol cume into my room and stole my
poiketbook, and all my jewels which my
nnsband lv.d given me—precious for bis dear
sake—and 1 was without the means of even
p.iymg the board bill during the time that
ellipse! heloie I guvenp waiting for Ken
As Olive said this she turned so white that
Mrs. Doane lifted a glass of water to her
lips. But she administered at the same time
an effective cordial, the elixir of hope.
"Oilie," she said softly, "can you bear
good news?"
The gin raised her tear-staiuid face won
deringly. She read a solemn gladness iv
the noble face tending above her.
"Oh, tell me!" weaving her thin hands
together convulsively. "It is about Ken
neth—my husband?"
"Yes."Oiive, Kenneth Doane, yotir hus
band, is my son. But he is no longer the
bright, handsome boy whom you learned to
love. He is crippled iv body and miud. Do
BOt cry, dear, for to those who truly love
affliction is only a nearer nnd dearer tie, and
iv your love my poor Kenneth may And
" Let us go to him at once," said Olive
" Yes, dear, as soon as I can make the
necessary arrangement- for your discharge.
But you must first know how it came that
he never returned to you after that sad
" 1 had been spending the year on the con
tinent with a party of friends and had just
returned home. Kenneth came to see me,
w Ih his old co.'dial greeting, but I saw his
mind was preoccupied. After a time be pro-
I'O.i il a walk, saying he had something to
icli n c which would sound bciler in some
romantic place. So, laughing at his boyish
folly, us I called it. 1 went with hiui "—
" Yes," said Olive. " The one dark spot
that clouded my happiness was to liave him
taken away ou the day he left me! He was
to tell you of our marriage; the very next
di.y we were going together io my father
and mother to beg their forgiveness."
•* Well, little Olive, it was decreed tliat
there should not be such a joyful ending to
XK ll.null's story. My poor boy was ever the
first tv respond to a call for help of any
kiLd, ai il to keep a poor little street waif
from being crushed under the iron hoofs of
some heavy diay horses he sprang lorward.
and, oh. Chive! the next moment my boy—
niy only one—was lying a crushed, b;etding
mass before niy eves.
" 1 had bim carried to my rooms and the
best surgeons in the city have been caring
for him, Lut the injury was to the brain, and
he has not had a sensible moment since the
accident I have wondered much at his con
tinual raving. about 'Ollie.' Now 1 know.
"As soon as you are strong enough to bear
it I will take you to him. He is so changed
that it will be a great shock to you to see
him, and he will not know you."
"My love shall bring him back to health
snd reason," said Olive, lerventlv. "I will
not leave mm nicht or day. 1 will be more
tender to bim than a mother to her weeny
** Mich loving care will do more for him
limn medicine, ami your hopefulness begins
to find an echo in my heart. Now, Olive,
leil me why you should have been so secret
about jour marriage. I have never denied
Kenneth a single thing he asked for since
his babyhood, and had he confided in me all
tbis suffering <-.na Borrow might have beeu
avu lied."
*' My father, though old, is very stern and
set in his way, ana he was very angry at
my faliiug In love, with a ' fine city gentle
man, who'd break my heart after he tired
oi his new toy!* That is what he said of
Kcncelh; and I felt in my heart's core that
it wns a wicked slander. So, when he
coaxed, I was not slow tv come to liis wav
of thinking—ihat the only way for u« to do
war, to take things into our own Imrids and
run away and get married. We were such
children—please forgive us! 1 see vow that
it w us all wrong."
The thought of Kenneth alive and restored
to her, and the knowledge that nl! was for
giveu by her parents, seemed to bave already
restored Olive's strength, and it was not
many hours before she stood at her hus
band's bedside.
The very sound of her voice seemed to
have a soothing influence upon the sufferer,
and after weeks of weary watching, both by
day and nient, the cloud lifted from the
troubled brain and Kenneth knew her.
He is now fully recovered, though be will
always curry the scar of his injury.
They live with Kenneth's mother, but the
old people at the farm are made glad by the
frequent letters and yearly visits from Olive
and her husband.—Selected.
Klch -Mm,. of Silver and Gold In the
Vicinity of Juneau.
L. Radovich, a well-knosvn inventor of
mining machinery, lias just returned from
Alaska from an inspection of liis mines near
Juneau. In an interview yesterday he
*' I am perfectly satisfied that Alaska is
thu coining country for tlio miner—for thor
ough miners I mean. It is exceedingly rich
in minerals, yet difficult to prospect on ac
count of the forests, brush and moss. The
iuoss is the worst thing the luiuer has to
contend with. It seems to be everywhere.
The prospector finds his best opportunities
in the gulches and creeks and on the shores
where the float can be found. The country
is in sore need of capital, and the miners
who are there need encouragement a-id as

Mr. Kadovich exhibited several specimens
of ore rich in gold and silver, and a com

from Alaska, large game is still abundant

John Welsh. Ed Phillips nnd Thomas
Maloney, boys ranging from 14 to 17 years
of age, svere arrested yesterday at tliaGnuid
Hotel on a charge of petty larceny. The
watchman caught theui in the act of stealing
lead pipe, gas fixtures and other portable
articles from the hotel basement.
Over $100 worth of such material has been
stolen within the last week from the same
place, although a close watch was kept on
the cellar. It seems tliat the gang of thieves
who were taking the property gained access
to the hotel storr-rooms from the burned
portion of tbe block, through which they
entered and later escaped unnoticed with
their booty, which waa considered only old
junk taken from the debris.
Early yesterday morning one of the three
prisoners was seen acting suspiciously, and
hia comrades were caught in the cellar.
Maloney is said to be a well-known burglar,
and bas served a term of imprisonment.

Nearly Four Hnndred Sewers
Gain a Quick Victory.
Tlie sewing girls employed in the overalls
department of Levi Strauss & Co.'s factory,
32% Fremont Btreet, just 300 in all, went out
on a strike yesterday morning because of a
reduction in wages. The strike only lasted
a few hours, however, and the difficulty was
quickly straightened out. To-day the girls
will appear at their usual places and receive
the regular compensation for piece work.
After a two weeks' vacation, made neces
sary by taking an account ot stock, the
young women appeared at lhe factory yes
terday morning ready for work. They did
not resume their labor, nowever, because of
a notice posted throughout the department
that hereafter the price paid for sewing
overalls would be reduced from Sl o.j to H5
cents a dozen. When the girls refused io
work at the new schedule of prices J. W.
Davis, the foreman, offered to compromise
and pay $1 a dozen. This the sewers re
fused, and adjourned to the side.valk, where
they wero discussing tlie situation iv a
quiet, lady-like manner wheu a member of
the Council of Federated Trades appeared
and advised tliem to adjourn to some hail.
They did so and marched in a body to
Music. Hull, where a quiet meeting was held.
Mrs. Lulu Lindsay acted as President aud
Miss Kate Harmon as Secretary. Some of
the young women were inclined to say sharp
things about Mrs. Spooney, tlieir overseer.
They openly accused her of having shown
favoritism in giving out the work, bnt they
afterward took it all back when tiie discov
ery was made that she did not have the
allotment of the work. While the sewers
were discussing the advisability of forming
a union to carry out a long striKe, Foreman
Davis appeared with a ilag of truce. "Come
br.ck to work, girls," be sold, "and your
waives will not be reduced." They accepted
the offer and the meeiing dispersed, the girls
promising to be on baud bright and eariy
Foreman Davis had nothing bnt kind
words for the suikers while speaking of the
affair to a Cai.i. reporter. He said they
were nearly all skilled seamstresses and the
niajoiity could easily make $2 a day. The
rednction was made on overalls hecause the
.firm had tn sell them at a much lower price
than was formerly obtained from the store

Nathaniel Greene Absconds Willi
a Large Snm.
The Cashier of Farnsworth ft Bn*rgl«s Bads
on the Parjamn Steamer to Evade .at
tics-Over $10,000 Gone.
Nathaniel Greene, cashier for Farnsworth
& Kuggles, draymen, absconded last Satur
day with about $10,000 of his employers'
money, probably more. He escaped at the
last moment on the City of Sydney, which
sailed for Fanama.
Greene had been a trusted employe of the
firm he is alleged to have cheated for five
years. But only last Saturday did Mr.
Farnsworth suspect that bis cashier was
systematically robbing him. Money was
needed Saturday, and Mr. Farnsworth went
to the London and San Francisco Bank to
draw some. He was surprised to learn that
his account was overdrawn to the extent of
$17,000, and could hardly beliove the bank
cashier's statement. Firmly believing that
there wns a mistake in tlie bnnk account, he
returned to his oflice to inform his book
keeper. Ho told Greene what the cashier
had said.
But Greene passed the matter off lightly
with a laueli. "There is certainly a mis
take," said he. "I will make out a balance
sheet at once, showing exactly how we
stand with the bank."
Shortly before noon Greene placed a bal
ance-sheet, as he called an array of figures
of banking transactions, in his employer's
hands. Ie showed an overdraft of $OXIOO.
Farnsworth hurried back to tho bank, where
he was informed that after a careful ex
amination of the books his accounts was
found to be overdrawn $17,000. It was
clearly bhown that Greene's balance-sheet
was absolutely wrong in details and totals.
Then Farnsworth suspected his cashier.
He returned in haste to his office.
But Greene was gone.
The police wero notified at once, but be
fore anything couid be done iie was safe on
the steamer, which was then steering out
through the heads beyond reach of the
officials. It was learned that a man
answering Greene's description exactly had
gone aboard the steamer in a great hurry
just as she was leaving tho wharf.
The defalcations may amount to more
than $10,000, hut there is no doubt about
this amount having hecn taken.
Bin conversation with a reporter yesterday
Mr. Farnsworth said he believed Greene
had been taking the money for nearly two
years. "Wedo a very large business," said
he, "and have heavy collections coming in
every mouth. Some of our customers pay
in cash and others by means of checks.
Whenever checks were handed in Greene
would turn them over to the bank.
"If mouey was paid, Greene put it into
his pocket and our hank account was so
much short. This was carried on until I
iiuidentally learued how much it was over
Greene is a married man and apparently
had no expensive habits. He married about
eighteen months ngo, and always appeared
devoted to his young wife and home. He
rarely ever went out alone at night. What
he did with the money puzzles liis intimate
acquaintances. He lived at y~4 Bush stieet,
where his wife is prostrated with grief over
the disgrace he has brought upon her by his
crime and desertion of herself and his baby.
The detectives have been instiucted to do
nil in their power to bring Greeno back to
justice. A reward will be offered for his
capture. Teh grains will bo sent from police
headquarters to Mexican ports, aud the de
faulting cashier may be apprehended.
Greene was well connected in lhis city.
He had a good reputation, being always
looked upon as an hincst, industrious busi
ness man. He secured the position of trust
which he lias violated through the standing
of his family connections.

Southern l'acitic Company,
Sihriver held p. ssession of the 240 acres
In question several jears ago, although it
was iv the Southern Pacific Company's
giant. He claimed the land as mineral, and
as suiii that he had a light to locate on it,
while the railroad company contended that
it was agricultural or grazing land. In 1885,
the Southern l'acitic Company threw the
matter into the I'nited States Circuit Court,
where the laud was decided to be grazing
pastures, and the ownership of it by the
railroad company was affirmed.
Four years later the company brought
suit for ejectment in lhe saniu court and re
covered judgment, and in March last
Schriver was ejected from the land by the
United Stales Marshal. He then instituted
a second contest, which was begun yester
day morning. Only four witnesses have
been examined so fur, and the case will not
be finished until late t. -day, if even so soon.
