Tltr World. 'Inly Utl. Miljx Merlin;: Car. The books of subscription to the capital stock of the connecting railroad anil warehouse construc tion company were opened last Monday at the office of McDow ell Bros. & Co.Nos. Tt and 7 Court landt street, and last evening over '2,OQO,000 of the 4,000,000 capi tal authorized had been subscribed. The plan of the company is to provide such facilities that the commerce of New York by vessels aud 13' railroads can be brought together at a point where all ships can discharge and load their car goes and most of the railroads will converge. Fr so much of the merchandise as shall not pass im mediately from thecars to the ves sels, or vice versa, the company in tends to provide warehouses, in which it can remain while waiting a market. Mr. 1ui. O. .llrDovrrll. Who is at the head of the enter prise, said yeserday: "We have secured control ol 150 acres of land on the water front on the New Jersey shore between liavone and Greenville, and contracts have already been made for the building of the docks upon the property. We shall be able to accommodate vessels of any size or class. As to the railroad connections, we pro pose either to purchase the Hud son connecting railway line from the Midland railroad company, from the point where it now con nects with the west end of the tunnel being built by the Ontario and Western company to Weeha lmwkcn, or else to build a sepa rate line from the same point. The Hudson connecting line now runs from this point down to a junction with the Pennsylvania railroad to Marion, crossing the New York. Lake Erie and "West ern, at the west end of the tunnel, and the Delaware, Lackawanna and "Western. If This Hudson Liar Is IScri It will be extended from the point of crossing of the Delaware, Lack awana and "Western under the Pennsylvania and Newark and New York railroads, and thence following the line of the Morris canal around Fidlers elbow to the water front. You see that we shall thus bring the Western rail roads and the ships together. Of the wholesale business of New York ninety-five per cent is with the country west of the Hudson river, and in the handling of this business the commerce of New York is taxed manv millions of dollars yearly in cartage, lighter age and other charges that we pro pose to do a.ray with. For light erage alone it is estimated that $39,000,000, directly and indirect ly, ate added yearly to the ex penses of handling New Yorks commerce, and the total expense to be done away with by direct connections between the railroads and ships has been put by a good authority as high as 90,000,000 a year. The average cost for the transfer of a ships cargo to cars is $800, of which enough will be obviated by our facilities to pay three-fifths of the freight charges front Xcw York to Chicago. "When does your company begin operations?" "We have already begun. Our charter allows us to begin when 2,000,000 of the stock is subscribed for, and more than that amount is already taken. Ye start with a number of favorable contracts besides those for the building of the docks. With the various railroad companies we will take contracts on terms agreed upon to build and deliver to them such docks and warehouses as they want, taking in payment their se curities, out of which our profit is to be made." "How does it hap pen that something of the sort has not been done before this?" "That suggests quite a long story. New York owes her great com mer ctal growth to the building of the Erie canal bv DeWitt Clinton. At that time she was second in commercial importance to Phila delphia. "When the canal boats came down the river it made no difference t them where they met the sea-going vessels, whether on the Jersey shore or at New York, or at Brooklyn. The Brooklyn people very promptly built ware houses to attract the business, and they cot it. When Thr XtnilroaiU :il Iil Cntur They fell in with the arrangements the canal boats had made, incon venient and expensive as it was to them to have to u?e lighters and trucks and to handle and re handle their merchandise. Now, at Philadelphia, Boston and Balti more the railroads found no es tablished warehouses, and so they built them at the proper places. The result to-day is that the ter minal expenses at those cities are far less than they are here, and New York has not maintained such a lead a her other advantages have warranted. The plans of our company when carried out will en able New York to handle her commerce more cheaply than any rival city, and being the greatest city, it is not extravagant to expect that then she will concentrate to herself nearly all of the commer cial growth upon the Atlantic sea board. While we will do much to take the lighters from our harbor and the drays from our streets, we will do more to increase the profits of our merchants. "We will, I think, do much towards making New York more than ever a city of merchants aud bankers, aud less a city of draymen aud lighter men."" Unhappy Peru. The Chileans are shooting all the Peruvian guerrillas they can lay their hands on. "What a pity they failed to get hold of Pierola before he skipped the country. Pierola escaped from his retreat in the mountains, where he had been organizing bands of guerrillas, on the advance of Chilean forces to break up the rendezvous of rob bers and scallawags, is now re potted in La Paz, trying to orga nize further guerrilla operations in the north. Monte.ro, at last ad vices, was still up among the In dians at Cajamarca. Neither Solar nor Montero had force enough to venture out of his retreat, and merely kept up a show of resist ance to Chilean occupation of the country, without effecting anything more than maintaining the stale of uncertainty. The Chileans could easily disperse these remnants of the Peruvian army, but do not care to at present. 1 1 would prob ably be the best solution of the situation if Chile should annex Peru outright. The Chileans are brave and ene rgctic. The battles of Chorrillos and Miraflores proved that the Peruvians are not soldiers. They cannot further contest the supremacy of Chile, their guerrilla warfare will hurt friend worse than foe, they cannot pa' indemnity for the war, their country would be a prey to dissension and disorder if the Chileans withdrew. -Annexation to Chile would mean new life, prosperity and advancement. A Stray Balloon Reported. Ronton Journal. Mr. John AY. Tobias, of the whaling brig Rosa Baker, which arrived at this port on Friday, re ports that on June 17th, at noon, in latitude 27 degrees 50 minutes, longitude G7 degrees J)0 minutes, observed a large galloon in the westward. It was apparently about one mile in elevation and about five miles distant and pro ceediug slowly in a northwesterly course. We set our colors but could get no signal from it. The aerial traveler remained in sight until 3 p. m., when the weather be came cloudy and it was hidden from our view. By the aid of our glasses we could distinctly see the car that was attached to it sway ing to and fro as it moved along, but could not observe any occu pants. The balloon seemed to be of a white or cream color, and of large size. It Avas proceeding in tue direction ot -cape Uatteras, the nearest point of .the- American coast, distant upward of COO miles.'lthe Uulted'suna on receipt of Si 00. The Probable Future. Referring to the newspaper speculations about the transfer of the Sandwich islands to some other power, no facts have come to light, but the San Francisco Bulletin says: "Just before the departure of King Kalakua there had been an outbreak of popular indigna tion. It did not go to the extent of overt acts of violence. But the royal ruler was given to under stand that he could not repeat some of his experiments without imminentdangerof losinghis place. The king soon afterward set out on his journev for the purpose, as was given out, of securing a sup ply of laborers for the islands. Some shrewd observers there as signed another reason, which was that he preferred to be absent un til the popular indignation had subsided. The Hawaiian kingdom at present enjoys about all the ad vantages of an admission into the Union, without any of its burdens. The business men of the islands, especially the merchants and plant ers, are pretty well satisfied. It is not at all likely that the king started off by way of Japan, China aud the east Indies, with any definite purpose of entering iuto any negotiations for the tranfer of his kingdom, lie is a constitu tional sovereign with very limited authority. When fhe reciprocity treaty was before congress there was an undertone of expression that the treaty, if ratified, would be a step towards the ultimate transfer of this group of islands to the sovereignty of the United States. But no especial desire was expressed for any imme diate change. It was pretty well understood, however, that when the native sovereignty should cease, the transfer would naturally be to the United States. Noth ing has since occurred to make that tendency more improbable than it was when the reciprocity treat' was pending in congress." Syndicates or Sharpers. The dispatches recently called attention to the new st'le of in surance swindling in vogue at the cast, and instanced the case of Robert Bell, an aged negro who died at Westminster, Maryland, July 10th, the insurance on whose life was supposed to amount to 200,000. Later information shows that the swindle was much greater. He was over eighty years old at the time of his death. He had boen afilcted with rheumatism and other diseases for many years, and pupported himself by selling ap ples on the streets. It now ap pears that within the past .two years an enormous amount of in surance had been taken on his life, the policies being held by some ten or twelve combinations of speculators, in amounts rang ing from $1,000 to 812,000, the whole amounting, it is said to orer SI, 000,000, divided among various companies. Whether this amount can be collected remains to be seen, it is clearly suown tnat in Pennsylvania, Maryland and other states, the swindling business of procuring the insurance of old and infirm people, chiefly in mutual benefit associations, is carried on very extensively by syndicates of sharpers, who work with bogus or disreputable doctors and sometimes unfaithful officers of the associa tions. The famous cafe Anglais in Paris, has J ust completed its cen tury of existence. Founded in 17S1 as a simple cafe, by 1 800 it had become a favorite breakfast ing place, and two years later was the ,chief rendezvous of the rc turnod emigres. This was the be ginning of it.s aristocratic connec tion, and in the year of Waterloo the cafe Anglais had obtained a European reputation. Equally re nowned under the restoration, the cafe then established a roulette table, and has continued in favor through all the succeeding political vicissitudes.
