The World's correspondent* imprisoned in
Fort Cabanas in Cuba arc saved. General lllaneo has courteously acceded to
the representations made to him by the
United States special government agent,
Lieutenant Hminerd of the navy. As
quickly as two Spanish officers cap reach

under a white flag to be exchanged, and
thc World correspondents will be brought
back to Key West by the same special
steamer. Tlie London Times' well known

point of view is invaluable.
SPANIARDS WEEEIN AMBUSH.
Hud   tirected   Slronit    Fortifications
and Masked llutterles.
Key West, May 14.—'llie United States
cruiser Marblehead, gunboat Nashville
and auxiliary cruiser Windom steamed
up to the harbor of Cienfuegos Wednesday morning with orders to cut tlie cable
connecting Havana with Santiago de
Cuba. This task .was accomplished, but
only after a terrific fight between our
warships and several thousand Spanish
troops, which lined tlio shore and were
concealed behind improvised breastworks.
Soou after the arrival of the warships
off Cienfuegos, four boats were launched
and proceeded inshore for tbe purpose of
grappling for the cable in order to cut it.
'liio warships lay to about .1000 yards or
more oft" the harbor. It was observed
that the Spanish troops had assembled
along shore but it wns not known that
heavy guns bad been placed in masked
batteries and that the old lighthouse batteries on thc neck of land had been transformed into a formidable fort.
Tho small boats proceeded cautiously
and for more than an hour worked unmolested on tlte cable. When the work was
about completed a shore battery fired
a shell at the boats. It was followed by
others and the Spanish infantry opened
fire then with their rifles. . Then, like n
flash the Marblehead sent a shell inland and followed it with a perfect shower
of shot. Then the Windom cut loose
with her 4-poundcr.
In tlie meanwhile Spanish bullets flew
in every direction around the small boats.
The blue jackets were not dismayed, and
protected by thc terrific return fire by
tho warships, tlie work waa continued and
the cable cut.   .
When the boats returned to tlie ships,
Regan, who was in one of the Marble-
head's boats, of which there were two,
was found to have been killed. Six men
were badly wounded.
Tho Spaniards had by this time suffered severe loss. Their shots from the
lighthouse struck the warships several
times and although they did not do much
damage, the fire aroused the determination of the American officers to exterminate the forts. Thereafter, for a moment,
the fire of the ships was concentrated
on the lighthouse and the improvised fort
was blown to pieces. As there were
great numbers of tho Spanish in and behind the fort at the time, there is no
doubt that many of thein were killed
The Marblehead and Nashville used their
heaviest guns as well as their small rapid
firing guns and an hundred shots were
thrown into the Spanish troops.
Tlie Dead and Wounded.
Washington,  May   14.—The  following
telegram camo to tbe navy department
this afternoon from Commodore Remcy:
"Key West, May 14.—Secretary of tlie

made upon them by women.
California Wheat Crop.
San Francisco, May 12.—rThe deficiency
in the rainfall has, according to the United States weather bureau's weekly summary of crop and climate conditions of
California, issued today, caused a failure
of the wheat crop in the principal grain
sections of this slate. A small amount, of
wheat will be harvested on irrigated lands
and summer fallow in the foothills sections.' Sonic elsewhere will bc cut as hay.
Feed is scanty. Hay and alfalfa are light
crops.

that both were equally in the wrong, and
it would be better for them to make up

Charges of a most serious nature bang
over the head of A. A. Gillis, United
States.court commissioner, residing at
WoolUy, Wash. Gillis was arrested several days ago on a warrant issued from
the bench by Judge Hanford upon the
application of Distiict Attorney W. K.
Ga.y, in which he is charged with having
accepted fees from settlers in the vicinity
of Woolley for the transmission of final
proofs to tlie land oflice "in Seattle. It is
charged tliat Gillis failed to transmit thc
proofs pJaeod in his possession as an officer of the law and also withheld the
fees, which should have been forwarded
to the oflice here.
California's fruit crop, like her wheat
crop is to be almost a total failure. Thc
dry spring has wrought great havoc with
her orchards. Her production this year
will bo cut down to thc smallest amount.
Tliis offers opportunity for Washington
fruit to become popular in the great markets of tlie east Last year the orchard-
ists of tiie Inland Empire sont a few
shipments to Chicago. There the commission men reported the fruit to bc certainly of a better quality than the California fruit, but because of un-uniform
and inferior packing it commanded a less
price than the California product This
matter of proper and uniform packing
and grading is one to which our orchard-
ists can not pay too much attention. The
sale of the fruit depends on it Uniform
and attractive packages and a proper
grading does more to find purchasers than
quality alone. If in methods of packing
our orcbardists come up to the California
orehanlists a sale at high prices is assured this year. Without good packing
we will lose our chance of taking thc place
of California in the eastern market.

The resignation of Charles A. Clark as
superintendent of the soldiers' homo is
in tho hands of the governor. It was
handed to that official March 25, to be
used at his discretion. Recently, however,
Air. Clark has desired to be released, and
now  wishes the resignation  accepted.
George E. Steunenberg, brother of Governor Stounenberg, has arrived in Uoise
from -Silver Cily, where he has heen engaged In mining. Mr. Steunenberg served

Lieutenant Walsh of the Fourth cavalry has received a dispatch from Colonel
Wood, commander of what is known as
the Roosevelt regiment, offering him a
commission as captain in that command.
It is probable ho will accept, as he is very
desirous of getting to the front. Colonel
Wood knew Lieutenant Walsh in Arizona
when tho latter was in active service
against the Indians, and knows that he
would be a great addition to the regiment
of rough riders which has been recruited
for service in Cuba.
Ed Smith, chief clerk of the state land
board, is a member of the national guard.
He has felt it his duty to resign and go
with tho boys, the Lewiston company.
Consequently he tendered his resignation
to the board. While his motive was
much appreciated, thc board felt that it
would be impossible to release him without causing much confusion nnd possible
loss, as he is the only one familiar with
the details of the state's complicated land
business. Consequently the board refused
to occept tho resignation.
It seems probable from the oction of
tho state land board at Uoise, that tlie
state's holdings in the white pine belt
will soon bc placed on the market. This
will bo followed, if a satisfactory price can
be reached, by the speedy completion of
tlie Moscow & Eastern, nnd the building
of immense saw mills for the manufacture
of the timber.   After a full discussion of
the matter the following resolution was
adopted: "Resolved, That the lands heretofore selected by the state in what is
known as the white pine belt, in Latah
and Shoshone counties, and aggregating
70,920 acres, together with the timber
thereon, be appraised at the earliest possible date, nnd that two or more capable
persons be appointed to appraise the same,
and that in making such appraisement
the lands described in the application of
0. H- Bradley, and aggregating 41,200
acres, be first appraised and reported to
this board." 0. H. Bradley is a prominent Duluth lumberman.

to Cuba.
John Mi Evans of Missoula has been
appointed captain of Company L, Helena, First Montana volunteers. Governor
Smith first appointed Julius Mueller of
Helena, but he declined the commission.
Captain Evans spent two years in West
Point, being the immediate predecessor
of Lieutenant R. Bruce Wallace, who will
assume the rank of lieutenant colonel of
the regiment.
Tbe new orchard company tliat is operating in the Eight Mile district near
Missoula, has completed the planting of
its new trees for this season under the
direction of President McDonald of the
company. The outlook is excellent The
ground is very favorable for orchards, and
thc new trees ought to thrive. Tlie number of trees planted this spring is 0000.
and in .addition to this 2000 grape vines
have been planted.
Attorney -General Xolan has rendered
an opinion to tho effect .that county officers who go to war lose their places
after 00 days* absence from the state,
just as if they had gone under any other
circumstances. The report is made timely
by the fact that several county officials
in tho state have enlisted in their local
companies. County Attorney E. K. Chen-
die of Fergus county and two other county officers, who have recently enlisted in
a LewlstOn militia organization, are
among tlie number.
Judge Woody has sentenced John P.
Pursell to imprisonment Jfpr life. Pursell
was convicted of *ht. '..under of John Walters. The murder was one of the coldest
blooded crimes ever committed in this
city, and aroused intense indignation at
the time it was committed. Pursell was
gunning for a bartender who bad refused
to give him a drink. He had deliberately
gone after a rifle, and when he found
thc man he was looking for he leveled his
rifle and fired. He missed the man he
was after, but he shot poor old John
Walters, who lived but a few minute;
after the bullet struck him. Pursell ad
milled tlie Hilling, and said he was glad
he had done what he had. At that time
he thought he had killed the bartender.
Major Geo. B, McLaughlin and his party are at Edmonton outfitting for the trip
to Stewart river. They have 00 horses
forming their pack train, and have two
government packers to look after them,
and expect to start in a few days on the
trail. Another party outfitting at Edmonton is the Petorltoro Klondike Mining company, to which Alexander Monk-
man of Butte is mineral expert. This
party will take with them two carts,
whieh they claim are historic. Thc first
bore Louis Riel as a prisoner from Ba-
toehe to the Regiiu jail, and thc other
was the triumphal chariot of Chief Pound-
maker on his historic march to Battleford.

San Francisco, Muy 13.—Reports from
Associated Press correspondents in tlie
Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys, the
great wheat-growing sections of tlie stale,
say that the wheat crop this year will he
almost a total failure in California. In
Sacramento nnd adjoining counties the
outlook is decidedly gloomy. Wheat has
not yet headed and most of it will be cut
for hay. There is a general belief that
there will not be enough wheat this yCJir
for seed. Knomious -pmntities of com are
being brought from Kansas and Nebraska
to feed stock. Advices from Stockl-m slate
that not more than 1(1,000 tons of wheat
will bo harvested this year. The normal
yield is from 100,000 to 125,000 tons. In
Fresno and adjoining counties tlie wheat
crop is regarded as a total loss.
A whistling eel has been discovered in

By far tlie largest mining deal ever con-
sl" «l'*d iii  the northwest  was closed
Saturday, when the final papers were
signed tliat transferred the famous Le Hoi
mine and smelter at Northport to tlio
British America Corporation for the sum
of ¥3,000,000. By the terms of tlio sale a
half million dollars is paid down and an
equal payment made monthly until tlie
entire price is paid. The Lo Roi, since its
lirst development in 1893; has paid in dividends the handsome sum of $825,000. (If
tho 113,000,000 pnid fnr the mine, four-
fifths of it goes to Spokane parties. Tiie
new owners lmve already acquired all the
mining properties surrounding the I.e Kol
and Red .Mountain, embraced iu aliout
600 acres of land, and it is now tlie intention of the corporation to develop a number of these mines from the workings of
the l.c Hoi mine, Wins saving a half million in development work.
Joe Burgeois and Joe Morris, two
French-Canadian prospectors, were the
discoverers of the property. Joe Burgeois, who had mined iu placers but never
in quartz, was sent to do assessment work
upon the Lily .May, the first claim located
in Rossland. This work performed, Burgeois loafed and smoked and waited for
supplies that were coming from .Nelson.
Looking across at Red mountnin, he saw
it was bare in places and could be easily
prospected. In the meantime lie had become associated -villi Joe Morris, a prospector, and tiie two went across the can-
yon and discovered tiie bold iron capping
of numerous Btrong veins. On these they
located the Le Roi, the Wnr lOagle, the
Center Star, the Idaho and the Virginia.
But witli prospective millions in their
grasp, Burgeois and Morris were poor
men, so poor thnt (hey could hardly claim
a grubstake. Burgeois with liis scant out
lit tramped over to Nelson. There he
showed his samples, with little encourage
ment. Burgeois was decidedly blue and
discouraged until he run across Colonel
l'I. S. Topping, Topping had been mining
recorder and was running a small store
at Nelson. He questioned Burgeois and
found that the only assay was from the
Virginia. "Tlie others may do better,"
he reasoned, "it 's clean ore and the vein-
are big."
The outcome was that Burgeois and
Topping made a "dicker." Topping \\a-
to pay the fees for locating the live claim*
and was to have his choice of one of tiie
properties. Burgeois came hack to Trail
ereek, stripped off the iron capping, pul
in a few shots and found clean ore above
the fir roots. Topping followed and made
crude assays, which gave more eneotir-
ageing returns; and the three—Topping,
Burgeois and Morris — gathered around
their lonely camp fire and resolved to
stay witli the strike and give it a fail
trial.
That is tlie story as narrated by Colonel Topping of tiie discovery of the
mines of Trail creek.
Burgeois sold his holdings for $15,000
or $20,000 an.l went up into the fori
Steelo district and located a silver-lead
claim, sold it for $20,000, and then went
to thc Northwest Territory, bought u
6000-acre ranch and sent back east to
Canada for his relatives. The dream of
ilis life lias been realized: be lias "struck
it rich" and set I led down."
Morris carried $10,000 to $12,000 out of
the camp, came down to Spokane, married
a school teacher and bought a home on
the north side nnd hns since become a
farmer.
In tlie fall of I8!in George M. l-'orster
was at Colville dying a lawsuit and became interested in tiie Le Roi. He entered into a liolld witli Topping whereby
lie agreed, in consideration of fourteen
sixteenths of the mine, to expend $2000 in
development work, l-'orster returned to
Spokane and took in upon the deal Colonel 1. X. Peyton of Spokane, George Turner, Oliver Durant, W. M. Ridpath anil
Alexander Tarbet. Colonel l'eylon after-
wards bought Topping's remaining inter
est, dividing it among a few of liis friends.

This phenomenally high-grade silver
district is again coming to tho front, it
Includes a section of country along Lump
creek ill lhe northern part of .Icll'crson
county. Montana, probably six or seven
miles in length liy lour or live in width
When prospeotod hut slightly on the Bur
face by men of limited means, the fall of
silver caused an abandonment of many
promising claims and the final shutting
down of most of the producing mines. The
Liverpool. Little Nell and one or two other properties were worked in a desultory
manner, but the life and spirit had gone
out of the district. But of late there has
been a pronounced revival. The discovery of new- and valuable ore bodies in various properties lias created new interest
in Hie district. The extraction of high-
grade ore from the Crescent has been followed liy the developments on the Hose.
Thc latter property, under bond and lease
to George Hollenback, has been developed
by a tunnel which caught the vein whon
in 100 feet, a fine body of ore being un-
covered, When through this the vein
was drifted on for 160 feet without ore;
then another body of ore wns discovered,
which is nearly 40 feet wide, witli no evidence of diminution. New ore. chutes
hnve been uncovered on the Little*Alma,
nnd the Hope hns taken on new activity.
A dozen other properties hnve boon t-iken

The Lily Mny company has finally ratified the sale of Ihe property lo Hie Kng
lish company just formed in London by
Harry Wliite to operate a number ol
ltossland properties. Tlie deal includes a
cash payment of $50,000 and Id per epnl
in tlie slock of the new company, which
will be capitalized at £60,000. A part ol
Hie cash payment has already been made,
and the balance is to be paid on or before
June 15. Hurry White, tlie organizer of
Hie new company, says tliat he will be in
shape to commence operations on thc
property by the tirst of next mouth, it
necessary. Tlie Lily May is famous as
Hie lirst location iu Hie Rossland camp.
It lies in the south belt on the SOIItll slope
of Deer Park mountain, and is just along
Hie line of Hie Dewdney trail. It was this
proximity to Hie Dewdney trail Hint led
to its location, as prospectors going over
lhe trait happened u]*on some promising

followed it ami staked Lho ledge, which
was found near by. Tho location was snli
sequently abandoned by the original locators ami for some time lay idle, when
some of the strikes ou lied mountain led
to its being restuked for its gold values.

Placers In Pierce Dletrlot.
As a result of tne bountiful supply ot
water in the Pierce district Hie placer
miners are reaping a harvest, and some
good clean-ups have already been made,
i'lie other day two miners brought out
ibout (1(1 ounces, their first clean.up after
ibotil (it) days' work*. They returned the
following day. expecting to make a much
larger clean-up before the water supply
becomes too low for mining purposes. Tin-
snow is all gone in and about Pierce, but
the highest mountains are still covered
with a good depth of snow, which will
continue to replenish tlie reservoirs foi
some time yet. The greatest activity in
placer milling appears to lie in Hie west
ern portion of tlie district, ill the vicinity
of Snake creek. In this territory a number of good claims tliat prospect from -to

movement.
The Times oarre.spondent says: "The
conclusion to be drawn from the reorganization tlmt they are seeking a peaceable solution of the question has, for the
moment, been abandoned and tlie war
will be prosecuted vigorously. There
was a prolonged cabinet council this afternoon dealing witli the crisis and several points were practically settled. Senor
^ngasta. though weak in health, remains
president of the council of ministers, be-
•auso the liberals are in a majority in
lhe chamber and it would lie inconvenient to have a cabinet chief, however, distinguished, who is not chief of the libera!
party. Four ministers, Senors Qullon,
Itermejo, Moret and Xiquena, will retire,
partly for personal reasons and partly because of differences on ini porta nl policies. Senor Sagasta will choose the

heart and broader mind, was a much
more noted literary h«ht, a truer lover
ot nature, a more determined champion

incomparable. Notwithstanding his
greatness, Gladstone was a little vain
and sometimes arrogant. Even with
these defects, which as a rule detract
from .'.be prowess of a leader, he by
sheer force pf intellect itilesl men and
compelled them to do liis bidding. Time
alter time Gladstone y*'i;s the "power behind the throDe." He was a pronounced
and lesolute champion of the British
nation, and throne and liirdil were made
to yield to his will. ThiB was forcibly
illustrated when the Irish church was
dis-establiehed in 1869, when the Irish
land bill was passed in 1870, and again
in 1871 when the purchiisn of commissions in the army was abolished. England will give him a noble burial and

will end, and a general recognition of
his masterly achivements and his superb
seivices to the progress of the world

A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY.
There is undoubtedly sufficient unorganized GiUbusiasm for good government in the province to turn down the
Turner government if the entire QBP0S*"
tion could be consoMMed in the interest of Joseph Madia apd W. W. B.
Mclnnes.
An opposition under the leadership of
the unprincipled individuals who shout
for tbe right in Victoria and are the
head push in.the perpetration of wrongs
at Ottawa would be less desirable to the
people of ,jhis section than the Turner
government.
But an opposition led by someone nol
responsible for the sins of their laa-jers
at Ottawa might possibly succeed in
raising lhe politics of British Columbia
above the .level Qf tt tug of war between
two factions, one of which has got what
it wants and the other of which is looking for what it cjin get.
C. P. R. Getting Ready to Build Into the
Boundary Country.
A telegram from Trail, B. C, to the
Spokesman-Review, under date of May
16th says:
The Canadian Pacific Railway company is actively pushing the extension ]
into the Bymind^y country. Bids were j
opened at the general offices of the
Columbia & Western here today for the
build ng of this extension from Robson
into the Boundary district. The line
will be 100 miles in length, the estimated cost is *f3,ooo.ooo. Tbe bids were
wired to Montreal, to the boad offices of
the Canadian Pacific railway, The contract may not be let before June 1st.
The company evidently expect to
push this work to an immediate finish,
as the officers at this place are crowded
wilh nngiiieeiB preparing plans and arranging details.
It is not generally known tbat the Canadian Pacific railway has uot publicly
called lor bids fer this work, but bad
asked several re3D°"-.-bl-- contractors to
offer estimates.
A number c,l the contractors have arrived in town, having come in over the
proposed line to tatniUrize themselves
wilh the work, so that they could b,id
intelligently, McKenzie & Mann, Boomer, Winters & Parsons, W. R. McKrawe,
James Poupaw, R. Larson and other well
known contractors, have been in Trail
and bave submitted bids.
Tbe toad w,Jl connect with the C. &
W. at Robson, thence up the lower Arrow lake to Dog creek, up this stream
to McCiea pass, thence down McCrea
creek to Christina lake to Cascade City,
along Kettle River to Grand Forks, up
the North Fork and Brown's creek to
Eholt gass, down Eholt creek to Bound
ary creek and through Greenwood Anaconda and Boundary Falls to Midway.
Tbis 100 miles of rqad will be something
of 11 record-breaker, as it is proposed to
have it completed before the close of the
present year. The line is most difficult,
filled with engineering problems, much
tunneling and costly bridging, necesitat-
ing a great outlay ,,t money. Vice
President Shaugbnessey, of the Cana
dian Pacific railway, will be in Trail
early in June to definitely settle many
important points of railroad work.
Tne plans and specifications are comply for a change of the narrow gauge
between Trail and Rossland to standard
gauge. The Tiger switchback will be
removed, the grade lessened and curves
cased considerably. The estimate of
the cost of the work is $100,000. It is
not positively known when the reconstruction work wiil begin.
Spanish newspapers take tuni?, in
calling the English dogs and the Americans pigs, winch suggests the thought
that tin- newspapers of Spain must be
almost as mad at the Anglo-Saxon race
as the people of the Boundary country
are at the Canadian parliament for refusing a charter to the Kettle River
Valley railway.
The opposition papers complain that
it costs .too much to run the country
This change is a triffle strange, when the
fact is taken into consideration that the
C. P. R., the practical director of Canada's affairs, has always been regarded as
an expert in the way of doing business
at the minimum of cost.
The New York Journal boastfully
claims tbat "the militia would go to hell
behind their own officers." "These untutored Napoleons oi the volunteer
army are much more likely to lead their
followers to the point first named than
to victory," adds the Toronto Telegram,

BRADY GROUP
Valuable North Fork Property
Changes Hands.
SMITH CURTIS TAKES IT IN
And  Will  Organize a  Company to
Push the Development to a
Successful Termination.
John H. Smith and Thomas Brady the
owners of the Brady group in Brown's
camp, yesterday completed a sale to
Smith Curtis of Rossland, who for some
time has had his eye on tbis fine property and whose recent visits up the
North Fork were with a view to its
acquisition. The property bas been
held at a *ja 400 bond, but as Mr. Curtis desired to stock it in a company he
asker} tor a spot cash price and after
several weeks' negotiations a deal bas
been made.
There can be no doubt tbat tbis is one
of the finest properties up the North
Fork of Kettle river as it has good {lay
ore from the grast roott. It lies between tbe well known Pathfinder and
the Diamond Hitch. It has a vein of
quartz thirty feet wide as exposed on
the side of a steep hill and upon the
hanging wall a shaft has been sunk 8 or
10 feet.
When Mr. Curtis visited the property
on Thursday he was accompanied by
ex-Mayor John A. Manly and Commodore Biden of Chicago who is visiting
Mr. Manly. A blast was put in while
they were there and from the five foot
streak of quattz adjoining tbe hanging
wall, Mr. Manly selected some 15 specimens as fairly representative of it and
these were banded over to Aesayer
Sheads who found the average values
to be gold 2 88 oz., silver 10 01., copper
seven-tenths of I per cent, giving a total value pf $64.60. As the ore will concentrate about 10 to 1, it follows that
an average of $6 or %j per ton would,
with concentration, be very good pay
ore.
The inspection and assay returns were
so eminently satisfactory that a very
large block of the promoting shares ot
the company to be formed were taken
and Mr. Curtis was assure J that Chicago
capital would back tbe enterprise to the
requisite extent to make the property a
dividend paying one.
Two assays made in Butte, Montana,
gave $81.47 and |88 and showed 5.5 per
cent and 3 per cent copper respectively.
The ore much resembles that of the celebrated Christina which lies a mile to the
south of it and from which assays of
about equal value have been obtained
and wbich has several tons of pay ore on
the dump. Tothe north" west liet the
Little Bertha with another quarts lead
giving high values. All these high
grade quartz leads are parrallel and assure permancy with depth.
Meeting ot Directors.
A meeting of tbe directors of tbe
English and French Gold Mining Co.
was held hereon tbe 181b inst. This
meeting wm called for the purpose of
electing directors for the ensuing year,
the following directors were accordingly elected: Neil McCallum, J. M.
Simard, J. Anderson, H. P. Toronto,
Chas. Hay. The directors then met and
appointed tbe following officers: President, Chas. Hay; secretary and treasurer, Neil McCallum; acting secretary,
Peter Wright.
Since the formation of this company
some 18 months ago development work

England's "Grand Old Man"
Passes Away.
Gladstone  Far   Overshadowed   Any
Other   Character  of   the
Present Day.
Williar Ewart Gladstone passed
away at 5 o'clock last Thursday morning, alter a long and continued illnesB.
Mr. Gladstone had been unconscious
practically all day, though at times he
seemed to recognize for a moment some
of the watchers about him. Certainly
he did recognize his wife, who was beside him all day except whan the physician prevailed upon her to rest. Apparently he slept a good deal but would
occassionally utter a few words in an incoherent, dreamy way, words which
those who were watching were unable
to catch. Though a national funeral
will probably be accepted by the family
there it little doubt that the remains of
Mr. Gladstone will be laid to rest in the
peaceful graveyard at Hawarden adjoining the church where he was married more than a half a century ago.
BIOGRAPHY OF MR.   GLADSTONE.
William Ewart Gladstone was born in
Liverpool, December 29, 1808. He was
the only son of a rich merchant of Lancashire. Tbe family was of Scottish descent, with an illustrious pedigree in
Burke's Peerage. In Gladstone's boyhood George Canning was the controlling influence, and the years of his boyhood were passed during the time that
Wellington won Waterloo and Napoleon
became an exile. He was a student at
Eton in 1821, when Napoleon died, and
for six years he was a pupil under Dr,
Turner, afterward the famous bishop of
Calcutta.
In 1829 he entered Christ's Church
college and graduated in 1831 with the
highest honors, afterward taking what
was then a tour of the world, namely, a
tour of Europe.
In 1832 bis public life began. He was
elected a member of parliament, and in
1833 became a force, at the age of 24
years. At 25 he became a junior lord of
tbe treasury and engaged in controvers
ies with Disraeli, Newman, Cobden,
John Btuart Mill and Peel. He and
Disraeli afterward faced each other as
direct rivals, and for forty years waged
a political war.
In 1843 Gladstone succeeded the Earl
of Ripon as president of the board of
trade and did important work for Brit*
ish machinery. He continued active in
British politics until 1863 whin he
reaobed tbe apex of his fame
AND BECAME PREMIER.
Disraeli had resigned. Far the next
seventeen years he led tbe Liberal party
and alternately succeeded himself and
Lord Salisbury in the premiership—as
one and the other rose.
Upon his resignation, in 1895, he favored the Earl of Rosebery for premier,
and in his memorable speech in tbe
house of commons, bidding farewell to
public life and politics, he placed the
queen's proffer of the premiership
in Lord Rosebery's possession—placed
the scepter of his own power in Lord
Rosebery's right hand.
Since then, although out of public
life, be has been in it, and from time lo
time has made stirring speeches in favor of his old hobbies. Irish home rule
has been the aim of hia life, and for that
he bas spoken when he should have
been silent, bas warred when the impli-
ments pi strile were forever laid down
by him. He has continued to lead the
Liberal party and bas met the leaders
at Hawarden, and from that same
country seat has written messages of
advice that have held them together in
time of dismemberment. His has been
a longer political career by 15 years
than tbat of any Englishman, and by 10
tban that of any public mau in the
world.
HIS FAMILY   LIFE.
He married Miss Margaret Glynne in
1838, at the age of 26. Miss Glynne
was an heiress, 25 years old, and her
father was tbe owner of Hawarden, the
the celebrated country seat that will be
forever identified with the career of
Gladstone. Tbis soon descended to ber.
Here the family lived, taking short trips
to Londou during the hottest of tbe political season, and going to Invernes-
shire in the autumn; but most of the
year was spent at Hawarden, and bere
Mr. Gladstone was surrounded by everything that could contribute to hit comfort.
WENT TO IIHUKt'll  DAILY.
At breakfast Mr. Gladstone read bis
mail, and after breakfast he took a trip
to cburcb, accompanied by his wife.
For sixty years tbey have gope to church
together every morning in the year, and
Mr. Gladstone, in writing about hi; good
health, attributes it largely to the soothing effect of the hour of prayer after
breakfast. "In the seclusion of Hawarden church," he writes,''J cap quiet my
nerves and get in a proper frame ol
mind for the day," A powerful Sunday
sermon.
After the return home be wrote his let*.
ters until lunch, and after lunch sallied
forth for a vigorous wood-chopping.
This celebrated wood-chopping habit
is worthy a paragraph. "I chop wood,"
Mr. Gladstone wrote to a friend two
years ago, "because 1 find it is the only
occupation in the world tbat drives all
thought from my brain. When I wjlk,
or ride, or play cricket, I am still debating important business problems, but
It Is our Intention to keep a well assorted and up-to-date stock of Dry

Later in the afternoon Mr. Gladstone
wrote, read and thought. His wife managed the castle, attending to the duties
ot the house, and carrying out her well-
known motto—"If you want anything
done well do it yourself." She baked,
sewed, arranged and planned. Sbe
ordered the servants, counseled tbe
workmen, and saved the dollars. Sbe
told her daughter Helen that she had
never since her marriage thrown away
a dollar tbat she could have saved, and
when asked about riches once, said:
"Everybody gets money if they will only
keep it."
HIS CHILDREN.
The seven children that have been
born to Mrs. Gladstone are not clever.
At least they are not considered clever,
but what could you expect of sons whose
greatness is so overshadowed ?
William grew up to be tbe lord of the
Manor of Hawarden; Stephen, tbe second son, was rector ol Hawarden church;
Henry, after service in India, was taught
to be a country gentleman, and Herbert, the youngest one, was tbe only
one encouraged to take up public life,
Two of the daughters are married-
little Oorothy Drew being the daughter
of one, and the third. Miss Helen Gladstone, hai long been an instructor in an
English college.
Will Celebrate the 24th.
Rossland will celebrate the Queen's
birthday in great style this year in a two
days celebration. There will be a fireman's parade, double-handed rock drilling contest for a purse of $150, horse

Key West, Muy 15.- -Captain General
Blanco two hours before sundown yester-;
day attempted to execute a ruse which,'
if successful would have cleared the front
of Havana of six ships on that blockading 1
station.    Unable to eome out to do bat-1
tie he adopted  tlie tactics of the spider
and cunningly planned to draw the prey
into his net;   but, though a clever and
pretty scheme as an original proposition,
it was practically a repetition of the trick I
of which the gunboat Vieksburg and the
little converted revenue   cutter   Morrill j
were decoyed by a fishing Smack under]
llie big Krupp guns of Santa Clara batteries.    Thanks    to    bad gunnery, both
ships on that occasion managed to get
out of range without being sunk, though
some of the shells bur.st dose aboard, and j
the   Vieksburff'fl  ladder  was cut  adrift.,

Late yesterday afternoon the ships on 1

see two ships steam out of Havana harbor

Washington, May 12. — After refusing
yesterday, by a vote of -IS to 00, to consider the senate bill restricting immigration,
the house took up ami devoted the session
to the house resolution to amend the constitution so as to provide for election of
senators by a direct, vote. The amendment
as proposed in the resolution reported to

to elect their senators by direct vote or
through their legislatures, but an amendment by Mr. Underwood of Alabama making selection by popular Vote mandatory

passed. -
Spanish artillery officers could plot out
the exact range with their telcmetres and
pot them. So thc return was made iu
line ahead parallel with the shore.
Commander Lilly had not been mistaken. As his ships came abreast of the
Santa Clam batteries the big guns opened and fired 13 shells at a distance of
about five miles. The range was badly
judged, as more than half the shells overshot the mark and others fell short, some
as much as u mile.

"Remember llie Mnlne."
New Vurk. May 14.—A correspondent
of  llie   World  sends  the   following  dis*
piitth  from  St.  Thomas,  descriptive of
tlie bombardment of Sun Juan:
Admiral   Sampson's   fleet lay within
sight of San Juan de Puerto Rico all of
Wednesday night. At 3 o'clock on Thursday morning ull hands an all thc ships
were'called. For an hour and'a half
each ship was the seene of an orderly
confusiun ns thc 2000 sailors stripped
Iheir ships, their guns and themselves.
By 4:30 everything was in readiness to
begin the second engagement of tlie war.
At 5:15 eame the call "To quarters,"
uml instantly every man wns at his post
and ready and eager to strike a. blow in
atonement of thc Maine. Thc object of
attack lay in plain view, straight ahead
to the south.
Thc fortifications nnd batteries of San
Juan de Puerto liieo aro on the coral
reef guarding the entrance to tlie liarbor.
It wus a glorious morning, thc sky unclouded, the air cool mid brisk. A long
heavy swell rolled toward tho shore and
broke against the reef whose fortilications
seemed to ba asleep.
To mark the limits of the line of lsittle,
the Detroit and the tug Waumpuutuck
steamed shoreward, the Detroit to thc
■eastward until sho wus opposite tlie Vul-
tern, tho Wauinpituluck to the westward
until she wus able to anchor her small
bouts iu 10 fathoms of water just out
of range of the great fort of San Juan
Morro, which rises on u high hill af the
cast of the harbor.
The Center of Attack.
Mono, of course, waa to bo tlio center
of attack. In it wore the seven 0-inch
guiis which Spain sent over us soon as
tho war bei-aine certain and which hud
been hastily mounted nnd manned with
tbo bust gunners in the colonial army.
Soon after Ihe Detroit nnd Wauinpaiituck
wero ill placo, Admiral Sampson's column
of floating £prtressos nnd batteries began
to move upon the quiet and seeming
sleeping fortress.
ln tlio van was tho Iowa, the flagship,
with tho battle cry of the navy streaming
in brilliant colored Hags from hor must—
"Remember the Maine." Next camo tlio

heavy sen. Then followed the New York,
us formidable us a battleship; then the
low-lying monitors Aniphilrite nnd Terror. They bore straight for the shore in
a single lilc.
A  Start  From   Shore,
liiing before tho flagship wns in ningo
there eainc a flush, a cloud of smoke, a
ronr and a shell from tho wulls of Mono,
Tho shell fell fnr short. Tlie roar died
away und for 15 minutes the scene was
us peaceful us before.
Suddenly the Iowa turned sharply to
the cast. She came around peacefully
until her starboard buttery was pointing
full at Morro. One of her greut 13-inch
guns burst into flame nnd a shell sailed
high toward Mono. It foil short but tho
response came—a roar from ull the batteries and forts along the. shore. A tremendous burst of sound and smoke and
flume, a shower of shells thnt wasted
themselves' in the sea. So wild was the
volley that even had the Iowa been in
range none of tlie shots would have hit
her.
llie Iowa was now nearer and the entire line of warships was in position to
uttuek the Spanish shore line. Each ship
wus now nearer and the entire line wns
in position to attack the Spanish shore
line. Each ship wus now firing and each
shore gun wns answering. But wane ..ie
Spanish aim-was wild, the American gunners fired with the calmness and precision of exporience in target practice.
The fleet was soon enveloped in smoke
as was also the shore. Only outlines
could be made out, bu.t it was apparent
that whilo the Spanish Bhclls issued from
tho smoke of the shore to fall into the
sea, the American shells rushed from the
Hoot's envelope af smoke to bury them-
solves in tlie smoke on shore. And now
and then as the wind drifted thc thick
gray curtain aside it could lie scon thut
the Americun ships were uninjured and
thut on shore the line that was unbrpken
wus ull in ashes.*
Fleet  Draw.   Nelirer.
When the Iowa eame up to the Wuum-
pautuck stake hoat she turned and led
tlio column back again across thc line of
fire. The fleet was now nearer nnd the
Spanish shells fell around tho ships. Some
struck tigriTnst the armor of the battleship—big 0-inch shells—but thoy bounded
off leaving hardly a dent behind.
One Spanish shell struck a boat on the
Iowa passing Ihrough it nnd entered the
superstructure, scattering splinters in every direction. Three men wore injured.
Admiral Sumpson and Captuin Kvans
wero on the lower bridge nnd narrowly
escaped the flying fragments. In nil the
Iowa was hit nine times. I-nTer a shell
burst on thc Now York, killing one man,
injuring another severely und Bovoj-al
slightly.
In  TerrlUc  Ileal.
At 7 o'clock the duy had liceomc furiously hot so that men were fainting below lho decks und ut the guns the gunnels wore streaming sweat us no man
over sweats oven iu the hot room of a
Turkish buth.
One mnn, a gunner's male, on the Am-
phifrite, wns overcome and died in n few
hours.
Hut lho battle went on. The fleet wns
now steaming across the fortified front of
thc island for tho third time. Thc filing
from the ships was unubnted, but many
of the Spanish guns wore ailonced and
whilo the shower of shells scorned us thick
as evor, tho thinner cloud of smoke, the
leaping Humes from burning houses close
to thc shore, but behind the fortifications
mude the Americans know their work
wa" not as vain ns the frenzied firing of
ihe Spaniards.
Iltirned  thc Town.
In the old part of thc town of Sun Junn
adjoining tho fortifications whole blocks
were blazing. Thc swelling sea miulo it
dillienlt for the Americans to confine
their firo to the batteries. Many of the
shells flew over and burst among tlie ancient buildings from which tlio population
had fled ut dawn. So fierce was thc
American firo that had the intention becn
to bombard the residence portion of San
Juan tlie dumngc could hardly have been
greater.
The lighthouses were demolished soon
after tlie firing began. Later on the
houses iu Ballaj =quare iu St. Christopher street, in San Jose street and in San
Sebastiun street were in flames. The St.
Catharine institute.au ancient palace, the
orphan asylum, the old churches; were
burned or almost demolished.
The American officers through their
glusses, could see llie Spaniui*ds at work
in many places where the fortilications
bad' been broken down. Tbe Spaniards
seemed drunk with fury. They loaded und
fired like mndmen, without aiming, without any appearance of discipline or direction. At times their craved condition
led them to muny nbsurd acts, such as
waying swords, shaking fists and discharging pistols nt the American line,
which was barely within reach of their
guns of longest range.
"Cease Firing:."
Toward 8 o'clock tlie heat became absolutely unbearable on the Americun
ships. It became evident that the Spanish forts could not be silenced short of
another hour's work. Men on the American ships were dropping on all sides, not
from Spanish shots, hut from tho accurate and terrific bombardment under the
tropieul sun.
After consultation Admiral Sampson
signalled "Cease filing" nnd turned away
westward. The other ships followed, all
except the monitor terror. She did not
or would not see the signal of thc admiral. Sho remained in her position in
range of ull tlio un-ilenced guns of the
Spaniards. Por hull an hour sho kept
roaring away ut tho forts and embankments wilh nn almost incessant firo from
her 10-ineh guns.
Thc Spaniards concentrated their firo
on her. But her audacity seemed to in*
furiato them beyond even attempts at
marksmanship. Many of tho shells
struck thc sea a mile and a half from her.
Only a few came anywhero in hcr neighborhood. Still fewer struck her low-lying
deck and these glanced away us huriu-
lessly us a pea-shooter's slug from the
shell of a turtle. The Terror's guns are
noisy, but their roars were drowned in
tbo tenipetstuous booming of the Spanish
batteries, Before she steamed reluctantly
away she had the satisfaction of noting
that she hud made many a deep wound in
the Spanish lino and silenced several guns
thut might have mude trouble later on.
A Few Minutes for 11,-freslimeiils.
The fleet steamed to tho westward
about 20 miles ami then stopped to remove the grime of battle and to rest und
refresh the weary but happy sailors.
Tlie Spaniards evidently got the idea
tbat the departure was a retreat and that
tbe Americans had been driven oil. So
they sent out dispatches nbout a great
Spanish victory just us they did nt Manila, when'Dewey steuined uway to rest
nnd got breakfnst
Whilo the fleet was at anchor.20 miles
from San Juan a German steamer, the
Bolivia, came by. She was on her wny
to St. Thomus. Admirnl Sampson decided thut it would be best to find out
moro about hor and sent the Montgomery
in pursuit. She was presently overhauled
and while she steamed along tacutenant
Field went aboard, examined'her papers
und looked over the passengers to mnke
sure that she was not going to call at
San Juan' on her way.
As tlie Montgomery started bnck, nnd
bad gone nearly to San Juan, she spied
tho Spanish cruiser Isabella III, an old
warship, crawling out «* San Juan harbor and Crawling along ii..shore, evidently going to seo what hnd become of the
Americun fleet and whether it was really
flying, as tho Spaniards wished to think,
or was only preparing anew tlio complete
ruin of San Juan.
When tlie Isabella saw the Montgomcry
sho put about hastily and went back
home. ■

AN AftTISTIC ENDING.
THE sun shone under her bat and
made  her shade her eyes  with
her band, as she looked up at me,
standing by the edge of the river,
"Now, Mr. Conway," she said, "are
you quite sure you can manage a
canoe?"
"I'll promise you a new frock, Miss
Delia, If I upset you," said I, gallantly.'
"Dou't be rash," she laughed; "perhaps I'll think a new frock well worth
a wetting."
"I said—If I upset you," I replied; "If
you upset yourself, 1 cry off the bargain."
"I'm sure you'll never be so mean as
to argue the cause of the damage,"
(said Delia; "anyway, I'll risk lt."
"I feel a little afraid," ehe said, as I
gave her my hand to help her aboard.
I nm luclhied to think, however, that
her hesitation wns uot -altogether due
to nervousness, but was a little influenced by the fact that she has the prettiest little feet ln the world aud was
wearing the very daintiest of brown
shoes, which showed to the best advantage, as she stood ln timid* uncertainty,
oue foot on shore and oue poised ovor
the canoe. I confess the attitude was
fascinating to me, more especially as it
necessitated a very distinct pressure of
my steadying baud.
1 was the more convinced that lhe
timidity was affected when she eventually.settled herself among the cushions lu lhe bow of the cunoe, for all
tbo world as if to the manner born. Indeed, as I stopped warily In the center
of the craft 1 am sure 1 was really the
more nervous of the two, but then I
could judge of uiy shortcomings us a
canoeist far better than she.
"Now, thqj)," I said, "are you quite
sure you are comfortableV"
She gave a last smooth to the folds of
her brown skirt, gave a little pat to the
sleeves of her white bloiwe, and lay
buck ngulust the red cushions with u
sigh of content,
"Yes," suid she, sweetly; "I am
ready."
1 let go the tuft of grass to which I
bad beeu clinging, pushed off gently
with my paddle, aud we were fairly
afloat.
The sunshine sparkled on the water,
the leaves of the trees waved ever so
softly In the breeze, the bright colored
dragon flies darted hither and thither,
while along the bank the bees flew languidly from flower to flower, as If they
only kept themselves awake by luces-
saut buzzing.
"Isn't it delightful?" murmured Delia. .
"It Is, Indeed," I assented, but would
have done so more truthfully If the bow
of the canoe had not displayed so great
a reluctance to keep straight up the
river.
The splash of the water from the paddle was wonderfully soothing, and my
fair companion closed her eyes. Directly she did so, politeness no longer debarred me from gazing my All at her
upturned face.
I looked admiringly, taking mental
stock of her charms. How softly her
dark eyelashes swept her cheek—how
coquettlshly curved her mouth—how
dainty thc suspicion of a dimple either
side her lips—how delicately turned her
chin—how becoming the red cushion to
her wealth of black hair—yes, undoubtedly hcr nose was retrousse, but a fig
for your stately Greek beauties! there
ls a fascination ln the crash Into the
bank went the bow of the canoe, and
tbe subject of uiy reverie opened her
eyes with the start.
For the life of me I cannot steer a
canoe and thluk ot something else ut
the same time. By the greatest good
luck we were not upset.
"I am most awfully sorry," I stammered.
"I was nearly asleep," sbe said.
"I can't thluk what happened; It wns
dreadfully careless of me."
"O, It really doesn't matter," she replied, wllh a great good uature.
I paddled clear of the bunk and vowed such a collision should not occur
again. Delia, however, made no further attempt to go to sleep.
"How smoothly the river runs," she
said thoughtfully.
- "Unlike the course of true love," I
added, rather weakly.
It was not n very apposite remark,
but then I knew thc topic of love was a
dangerous one for me, nnd so, foolhardy, I courted lt, as the moth the candle.
There wus a pause In the conversation, while I successfully negotiated a
sudden bend In the river.
"It's a great pity, Isn't It?" said Delia.
"What Is?" I Inquired.
"Why, that the course of true love
never runs smooth."
"O, but lt does sometimes, really," I
asserted.
-I suppose the love Isn't really true,
then," said she. "Nowadays, books and
plays nearly always end unhappily."
"O, well," said I,' philosophically,
"there are two sorts of love; there Is a
passionate love, full of presentiment,
-which makes a man morbid and melancholy, aud forces him a thousand times
to curse the fate that brings lt to him,
but this sort of lore Is too lofty for •
workaday world, and tbe only artistic
ending le a nagic one."
I am afraid I bored Delia uow and
again by holding forth in this way, but
she only gave the politest possible
yawn, as sbe said, "And what about.the
other?"
"The other," I went on, taking care
to watch the course of .the canoe, "is a
tender pastoral love, which makes a
man cheerful aud lake rosy views of
life, causing hlm to thank heaven every day that such a love has fallen to
his lot, aud thc artistic ending Is wedding bells und domestic happiness."
Delia has the sweetest gray brown
eyes, and lt is nn cxtrttordlnnry pleasure to look-into tbem longer than is actually necessary w*hiie listening to, or
making, a remark; only, speaking of
artistic endings made me feel quite certain there was a more artistic ending to
such a look than mutually to drop our
eyes.
1 was just thinking about this, and
how very graceful some girls look in a
canoe, when, like a fool, 1 let my paddle
catch In a weed. I endeavored as gently as possible to extricate It, but tht
weed proved obstinate. Delia grew
nervous and sat up iu the canoe.
"O, please be careful, Mr. Conway,"
she cried.
■ I pulled a'trifle harder, but to no
purpose. Then I lost patience. 1 gnve
thc paddle a sharp Jerk, the weed gave
way all too suddenly. Delia gave a little scream, and I clutched wildly ut
the side of thc canoe lu a vain attempt
to keep uiy balance. ... It wus all
over lu a moment, and wheu I suy all,
1 Include Delia, myself, and tlie canoe.
Fortunately, we were close to the bank
and the water was shallow. 1 scrambled ashore and helped Delia on to dry
ilaud as best I could.
"Really, Miss Delia," I said, feeliug
unutterably foolish, as I caught the
painter ot the ennoe and rescued the
floating paddle, "I'll never forgive myself for this; I wish you wore u mau
and could swear at me."
"What an awful fright I must look,"
said poor Delia, putting back her wet
hnlr from her face.
I murmured of "Venus rising from
the sea," but Indistinctly, suddenly
doubting the propriety of the allusion.
"Don't forget your bargain, Mr. Conway," said she, shaking the water from
her bedraggled skirl; "will you order
the frock or shall I and send you in llie
bill?"
I know it was not a.very suitable occasion to do anything so serious ns
make an offer of marriage; also, that It
was a very prosaic way of putting It,
but, upon my word, I couldn't help it.
"1 wish you would give me tbe right
to pay your bills," 1 said.
Delia blushed and then she laughed.
"I don't think 1 mind If I do," she
said.
We wore lmlh very wet and liolh very
muddy, biit I looked inlo those aforementioned brown eyes, and this time
she didn't turn away, for I discovered
the more artistic ending—1 put my arm
round her waist and kissed her.—Madame.

Miss IOnima Thursby, the once famous singer, owns a minor bird, whoso
health ls carefully Inquired after by
Miss Thursby's friends. In fact, a child
of the household could not receive more
attention. Minor was given to Miss
Thursby lu Germany, lie Is a plain,
black little fellow, wllh a yellow bonk,
and bas the entire run of the apartment In which Miss Thursby lives.
What be lacks lu beauty he makes up
ln Intelligence, but his humor must always bc consulted. When It pleases
him he will Bit on the rack of Ihe piano,
slug snatches from "Romeo and Juliet," trill beautifully, and make Imitations of tbe banjo. Minor is full of partiality, and calls "cranky, cranky'' to
those whose appearance Is not to his
taste. He nlso is devoted to children,
and when those that are visiting Miss
Thursby go nwny he takes lt as a personal Injury and sulks for a long time.
Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll deems
the dog to be the natural servant nnd
companion of mnn. To bis favorite dog
Rusk the Colonel communicated much
of his Intelligence, and the dog responded to him as to uo one else. In fact, It
was rather a Joke among tbe Colonel's
friends that Rusk knew better thun to
exhaust his gray matter on nny but his
master. Rusk.ashegrcwold, was greatly troubled with rheumatism lu his
shoulder, so tbat he found going up
stairs painful to him. He would, therefore, walk to theelevatorin the colonel's
old house on Fifth nvenue and wait
patiently for some one to come and pull
hlm up. During tbe last three years"of
his life he was attended regularly by
a dog doctor, and when he died his
funeral wns a large oue. He was taken
by thc family up to their summer home
nt Dobb's Kerry und laid at rest ln a
beautiful spot overlooking the Hudson.
His grave Is uow marked by a pretty
tombstone.
Richard Croker, of Xew York, the famous Tninnuiiiy leader, lu common
with mnny other wellknowu men, has
a fondness for pets', Ills soletlon of
them also shows hlm lo bc without superstition, for he ls especially partial lo
a parrot, and a black cat, and declares
that, although the parrot ls supposed
to be Inhabited by an evil spirit, It Is
an amusing bird. Tbe parrot which
Mr. Croker owns Is very remarkable.
He paid $150 for ber and named her
Kate, lu harmony with her gay, dash;
Ing personality. She slugs, dances, ls
coquettish, and has a keen sense of humor. Besides the usual repertoire,
Kate slugs as her piece de resistance
"Sweet Marie," giving lt the true Intonations ot devotion. Neither does
Mr. Croker agree with the ideas
prevalent In Germany about black
cats, where they are shunned as
omens of evil, especially If they pass
the cradle of a sleeping child, and are
supposed to foretell the approach of
death by appearing at the head of a
Blck person. To Sir. Croker a black cat
suggests success. In the dnys of old
Tammany Hall one wns always to be
seen prowling about, and as guardian
of the good luck of the place was treated with the utmost consideration. The
cat appreciated his position, and was
the expert boxer of the neighborhood.
