ties by Hon. P. AY. Moldrim, of Savannah.
Mr. 51eldrim took for his subject, “The
Golden Age of Pericles,” and delivered a
most beautiful and instructive address. The
following young gentlemen contested this
afternoon for tho two Sophomore deolama

Circle; S. M. Varnodoo, ot Valdosta; A. C.
Willcoxon, of Newnan. Tlie speeches of
Messrs. Cobb and Crawford were unusually
fine and their names are freely spoken of in
connection with the medals. The Athenaeum
Club gave a large ball to-night at their club
house on Broad street.
WINE ROOM MEN WINCE.
They Promise to Never Sell Liquor
Again if Forgiven.
Atlanta, July 11. —A. Dans, a wine
room man, and H. Woolfolk, his bartender,
were convicted of violating the prohibition
law in the Recorder’s Court to-dav, bj*
selling whiskey. They were lined £4O each,
and both were sentenced to the stockade for
twenty-five days, and made to give appear
ance Ikmds to'thn City Court of $5OO each.
This afternoon Ixith men made oath that they
would never sell any more
liquor in Atlanta, and Recorder Anderson
suspended that part of the sentence which
sent them to the stockade. If t hey are de
tected selling liquor again it will be execu
ted. J. B. Varnadoe was fined $l5 and
made to give an appearance bond of $2OO to
the Superior Court to-day for assault with
intent to murder. He made an unprovoked
attack on Z. Barret, of this city, ou Marietta
street, several nights ago.
GOT SOMETHING AT LAST.
A Negro’s Fatal Attempt to Run Over
a North Georgia Woman.
Trenton, Ga., July 11.—News has just
reached here that a negro went to the house
of a Mr. Duran, in this county, two days
ago, and asked Mrs. Duncan, who was alone,
for something to eat. She told him she had
nothing cooked. “Then give me what money
you’ve got,” said the negro. She told him
she had no monej’. Ho then looked in the
house and saw a rifle, tvhichh he starte 1
towards saying. “I will take thatgun then.”
Mi’s. Duncan told him she would give him
the contents, which she proceeded promptly
to do. The negro departed but, report says,
he was found dead near tho Tennessee line
the next day.
BLOWN INTO ETERNITY.
The Fearful Result of a Premature
Powder Blast in Lancaster.
Lancaster, S. C., July 11.—A very sad
accident occuired on the Georgia, Carolina
and Northera railroad in the county of
Lancaster Friday* evening, resulting in the
death of night negroes and wounding mor
tally* one white man, besides wounding a
number of others. Tho party, with others,
were at work grading on the lino of the
said railroad, and the accident occurred by
a premature pi >wder blast. The drill hole
became choked after a large quantity of
powder had been put in and the overseer
attempted to unchoko it by running down
a steel drill, which, it is thought, struck a
i*ook, causing the pivwder to ignite, ivhilo
the party unawares were all near by.
Three of the negroes were blown tip 300
feet in the air anil mangled all to pieces,
and five were covered up and mashed to
death by* dirt and rock. The overseer was
not killed, but he is mortally wounded. Two
mules were killed and others were crippled.
Other men were injured, but it is thought
not seriously*. All of t hese negroes la
borers from Virginia, except one, who was
from Lincolnton, N. C. The overseer is from
North Carolina and hi*name is A. Gee. All
the slain men were working on the railroad
under IVlight Bros.
The Coroner held nil inquest over the
dead bodies, and the verdict of the jury was
in accordance with the facts above stated.
POISON IN BREAD.
The Mystery of the Sudden Deaths in
Two Families Solved.
Philadelphia, July 11. —Coroner Ash
bridge this afternoon began an inquest be
fore the sjavutl jury in regard to the deaths
In the families of I/>uis Deitel nnd George
Palmer, as is supposed from eating poisoned
tea buns made by Palmer, who is a baker.
The iuquest was upon two children of each
family*. There was no difficulty in proving
liberal use of baker Palmer’s goixls. He
himself testified to using chromate of lead
in several of his products. He stated that
since May 10,1884, six doatlis had occurred
in his family. He first <-onimenoed
the use of chrome yellow alxiut five years
ago. He heard that other bakers used it.
He bought it from ad ealer in bakers’ sup
A salesmen from whom the witness
bought chromate, said other bakers used it.
His practice was to dissolve the chromate In
half a pint, of water, and then take a table
spoonful and put, it in the dough. The
chemist who analyzed portions of the bodies
of the dead children, testified to discover
ing proofs of lead poison. The verdict was
that the deaths or four persons were un
doubtedly due to chronic lead ixiisoning,
and that the poisoning resulted from the
use of chromate of lead.
Baker Palmer was held in $2,000 bail to
await the action of the grand jury.

A STRIKE ON THE “L."
j Engineers Stop Traffic on the Road in
New York, July ll.—At 4 o’clock this
afternoon the engineers and firemen on the
Brooklyn Elevated railroad struck, and traf
fic on tho line was wholly suspended. Enter
a few trains were run by some of tho higher
officials in the engineer department of tho
road. Trouble has been brewing lie tween
the engineers and management for some
time. This morning nine engineers were dis
charged, and the Brotherhood of Engineers
at once appointed a committee to wait on
the management and demand that the dis
charge! employes be reinstated, i Minding ar
bitration. This was refused. The Brother
hood then ordered the men to tie up. At 4
o’clock this was done, the men obeying to a
man. Chief Arthur, of the National
Brotherhood, has been telegraphed for and
will come on at once to take charge of the
strike. It is rumored that the discharge of
the nine men was owing to a desire for
economy which the engineers and firemen
would not concede to bo just.
A COMPLETE SURPRISE.
The strike was a complete surprise to
every one. At that hour the trains are
loaded with passengers on their way from
business ami work in New York to their
homes in Brooklyn. No better hour could
have been selected. The result was a terri
ble crush at the Brooklyn end of the bridge
and Pulton Ferry. Thousands were thus
stopped on their journey homeward. The
Directors wore at the office at East New
York at 0 o’clock to-night, still consulting
as to the course to pursue, hi the mean
time, the great crowds at the lower end
took to the surface roads and gradually
melted away. Five trains were running on
the road at 10 o’clock to-night. The strikers
number thirty-six, half engineers and half
firemen. Grand Chief Arthur, who was
telegraphed for, has gone to Dakota on ac
count of troubles there. Both sides are de
termined to win.
COKE REGION PATRIOTS.
They Protest to Gov. Beaver Against
the Pinkerton Men's Presence.
Pittsburg, July ll. —A Uniontown (Pa.)
special says: Tho meetings held by the
striking cokers throughout the region dur
ing the last forty-eight hours indicate that
they are still determined to stand out for an
advance. Out of 390 votes at West Leisan
ring only 20 favored a resumption at the old
wages. The operators are not feeling as
jubilant as on Friday, but they are firm, and
assert that if work is not resumed this week
by the strikers other men will be put to
work and additional Pinkerton men brought
into the region.
MINERS IN CONVENTION.
The Miners’ District Assembly of the
Knights of Labor is holding a convention
here, which will bo in session several days.
At to-dny’s meeting resolutions were passed,
denouncing the importation of Pinkerton’s
forces, and calling upon Gov. Beaver to re
move the Pinkerton men from the region, as
their presence reflects on the coke workers’
loyalty to good government, is a menace to
their tomes, and an insult to their patriot
ism. They also tendered their services to
the Sheriff and local authorities to preserve
and maintain good order.
To Stop Working Hides.
Newark, N. J., July 11—-After July 30
twenty-seven leather manufacturers of this
city will stop working in hides. Tho rea
son for this action by the Executive Com
mittee of the Leather Manufacturers’ Asso
ciation of New Jersey is that there is too
mirth leather made up. On the other hand
it is understood that this is a fight against
the Knights of Lalior, and that when work'
is resumed it will Ist with non-union men.
Iron Mill glands Strike.
Cincinnati, July 11.—This afternoon the
workmen in the Swift Iron and Steel
Works iu Newport, Ky., walkod out and re
fused to work. The assignee of E. L. Har
per on July 1 granted them ati increase of
10 per cent, in wages. The assignee to
day withheld <> tier cent, of that increase.
This was the mill owned and operated hj* E.

Ice Men Strike.
New York, July 11.—A general strike
of the ice men in tlie employ of the Kuiek

and Jobu Kleck, master and secretary of
the Laborers’ Assembly, Knights of Labor.
Bail was fixed at £l,OOO in each ease.
Bricklayers in Demand.
Chicago, July 11. —The demand for brick
layers seems to be in excess of the supply,
owing to the fact that so many journey men
loft the city during the strike’and to tlie

The men are rapidly returning to work, and
the indications are that within a few dnj*s
the}* will all be employed.

THE COMING ECLIPSE.
I American Expeditions to View It in
Russia and Japan.
Vnnci'uvt r ( H. C > l,rtter to Phitatlclphin i Vez.'\
When the National Academy of Sciences
determined to send Prof. David P. Ttxld,
director of the Amherst College Oliserva
tory, to Japan to oliserve the total eclipse of
tho sun which is predicted to occur upon
Aug. IS, it required but little persuasion on
bis part to induce me to accompany the
party as its naturalist. More or less
familiar for years past with the strangely
composite flora and fauna of the Jap
anese islands, not only through reading, but
by the study of specimens from time to time
coming into my possession, I hailed the in
vitation of my friend with unfeigned satis
faction, and looking up “thanked my stars'’
for the favorable conjunction of sun and
moon, which, while casting a dee)) black
shadow upon the earth, is destined, I hope,
to throw light upon several questions which
have exercised the minds not only of astrono
mers, but also of naturalists.
THE COMING ECLIPSE.
At the outset it may be proper for me to
briefly give an account of tho phenomenon
which is drawing u.s from our Western
homes to the far-off East. The eclipse
which is about to occur is remarkable on ac
count of the length of the land-line traversed
by the shadow of the moon. Pew eclipses
have, during the present century, furnished
so many points or observation to the astrono
mer; as their pathway, even when equally
long, has been projected upon the surface of
the ocean. The shadow of the moon upon
the present occasion will strike the earth
first at Berlin. Tho eclipse will be total
there a few moments after sunrise. Owing
to the early hour at which totality will lie
reached at Berlin, this point is deemed high
ly unfavorable for purposes of observation.
Not only is the hour inauspicious in itself,
but the low lying mists and the refraction
of the atmosphere of the earth are calcu
lated to vitiate observations. The shadow
track will run to the Northeast from Berlin,
traversing Russia, passing near Moscow,
crossing tho Ural Mountains into Siberia
aad leaving its dark mark upon the blue
waters of Lake Baikal, near its centre.
Its course will be still eastward over
Mantschuria, south of Vladiwostoek, bend
ing gradually southward across the Sea of
Japan and striking Hondo, the main island,
atNugata. The course of the shadow Mill
be in a southeasterly direction from Nugata
across the island, which it will leave at
51 i to, northeast of Tokio, the capital. At
Tokio the eclipse will be nearly, but not
quite total. The only large city upon the
globe which will bo favored with a vision of
t ho eclipse at the time of totality is the Ger
man capital, though many large towns and
villages lie along tho central pathway of
darkness. Tho shadow of the moon will
leave the earth some hundreds of miles
southeast of Japan in tho Pacific Ocean.
In Russia the eclipse will occur in the
forenoon. At Lake Baikal the sun will be
hanging in the noonday heavens at the time
of totality. In Japan the eclipse takes
place between 3 and 4 o’clock, local time.
The duration of the total phase, while not
among the longest on record, compares
favorably with those observed during the
present century. At Lake Baikal the dura
tion of totality will approach four minutes.
It will diminish eastward and westward
from this point. In Japan tho duration of
tho total phase of the eclipse will be three
minutes and fifteen seconds.
The eclipse will be most fully observed in
Russia, that, being the point most easily
reached by European astronomers. A num
ber of observing parties will be made up
among the Russian astronomers, under the
general direction of Dr. Otto von Struve,
Director of the Imperial Observatory at
Pulkova. A number of German, French,
Italian and English astronomers will watch
the eclipse at different points in Russia.
AMERICAN OBSERVING PARTIES.
Two parties will leave America for tho
purpose of viewing the eclipses. Prof.
Young, director of tli.i Princeton Observa
tory, is the astronomer in charge of one of
these expeditions and will be accompanied
by his colleagues, Prof. Brackett and Mc-
Neill. They will make observations north
east of Moscow under the auspices of Dr.
Struve. The other American expedidion,
and the only one of any nation which will
make observations in Eastern Asia
at the eastern end of the line of
totality, is sent out in charge
of Prof. To ld, under the ausp.ioes of the
National Academy of Science and United
States Nautical Almanac Office, of which
Prof. Simon Newcombe is Superintendent.
Prof. Todd is accompanied by his accom
plished wife. Tho botanical and zoological
works of tho expedition will be in the charge
of the writer.
The work of the Japan expedition being
designed to be largely photographic, an at
tempt being in contemplation to secure
larger photographs of the corona of the sun
than have j et been made, tho expedition
will be reinforced upon its arrival by a
number of photographers whose services
will be secured in Japan.
The exact point of observation will be de
termined upon arrival in Tokio, where ac
cess may tie had to the extended series of
meteorological records which havo been
kept for a number of years in the same
manner in whirls such records are kept by
the United States army signal office. The
location will, however, most probably be at
Nikko, the burial place of the Hliogems,
concerning which the Japanese have a say
ing, “Let no man say the word beautiful till
lie has seen Nikko,” and where not onlj* is
there a salubrious climate, but a suf
ficient elevation above the sen fogs
to secure a good sky. Nikko is about
ninety miles northwest of Tokio, iu the
interior. Other elements besides the me
teorological enter into the determination of
a site at which to set up the instruments of
the expedition, one of the most, important
being that of transjiortation. The instru
ments which we carry with us weigh a full
ton, so it will certainly not be easy to trans
jKirt them over Japanese roads in the primi
tive conveyances which are still in use in
the greater part of the country. Think of
toting a ton of telescopes upon traveling
chairs! Another important matter will be
to secure a point from which a telegraphic
communication may be had with other
points of observation.
USING THE TELEGRAPH.
Prof. Todd lias suggested that in ease any
discovery requiring verification is made by
observers to the \Y est they employ the tele
graph to communicate with observers in the
East, who will he in a position to verify or
reject the discovery. This proposition to
employ the telegraph in the manner indi
cated was first nude by Prof. Todd in a
paper published in the proceedings of tho
American Academy of Arts ami Sciences
for 1880, and be- since been renewed
in a paper published in the American
Journal of Science for March,
1887. It is a remarkable fact that
the line of totality in tho case of the ap
proaching ivlipso follows for nearly its en
tire length the line of the Russian overland
telegraph, which, reaching the sea at Vladi
vostock, is connected with tho Japanese
lines by cable to Hnkodndi and Nagasaki,
Should the proposal of our astronomer be
acted upon we shall have the remarkable
scientific spectacle of a chase of the shadow
of the moon around the earth by me ins of
tho invention brought into Rung by the in
genuity and executive powers of Henry,
Morse, and Field.
The special objects of search during the
edit iso will bo the corona of the sun, and no
doubt au effort will be made to verify the
reported discovery of an intrn-meivuriul
planet, to which the name of Vulcan has
sometimes been hypothetically given by
THE ROUTE OK THE EXPEDITION.
The route decided upon by the United
State.-, Eclipse expedition is tlie latest opened
to travel, and the shortest, both in the mat
ter of distance and of time. The writer
joined Prof. Todd at Winnipeg last Mon
day, and despite a detention of thirty-three
hours at Cnnmore, at, the entrance to the
Rooky Mountains, reached Vancouver yes
terday evening at, dusk. The delay at Can
more was utilized most ngreeably'for pur
poses of botmie and and entomological study.
| and so far from being regarded as an unto
ward event is gratefully remembered and
is not set down against the officials of the
great railway corporation, who could not
foresee the sudden melting of the snow in
the mountains, nor guard,against the com
bination of circumstances which led to the
partial destruction of their railway bridge
at liuthil. But, little is as yet known by the
traveling public of the wonders of the region
I raversed by the latest of the sisterhood of
trans continental rail war's. Familiar as the
writer is with the mountain scenery of
Switzerland, he does not hesitate to say that
nowhere in Switzerland is there grander
Alpine scenery tiian that which extends
from Donald to Revelstoke and which is af
terward encountered as the railway makes
its wonderful descent through the canon of
the Fraser to the sea. Here are Alps almost
as high ns those of the Bernese Oberland,
covered with eternal snow and ice.
AMONG ALPINE SCENERY.
Here are peaks as steep and awful in
their sublime uplift as the YVeisshorn or the
Matterhorn. Here are fields of virgin white
covering these Western Alps as pure and
beautiful as those which drape the Jung
frau. Here are glaciers as long and broad
as those which rivet the attention of the
tourists in the Valais, and quite as accessi
ble. Nowhere in all Europe is there scenery
such as that which greets the eye upon the
Fraser as it pours its stream, boiling like
Niagara below the falls, through the crags
which line either banks of the canyon and
soar upward at times to the height of 3,000
to 4,000 feet until they are lost in the clouds
which are wafted in from the Pacific by the
warm Chenook winds.
Tlie passage across the Pacific is made to
and fro between Yokohama and Vancouver
in far less time than between Ban Francisco
and Yokohama. The Abyssinia, bound in,
left Yokohama on May 81, at 7 a. in., and
arrived in port at Vancouver on June 13, at
about midnight. This was her first trip
across the Pacific as the pioneer ship of the
new Canadian Pacific lino. She brought in
her'hold $1,500,000 of tea, silk and opium,
which is being loaded here for shipment to
Montreal. It will be the pleasant experi
ence of the members of the United
States Eclipse Expedition to make
tho first run ever made from
Vancouver to Yokohama upon an ocean
steamer. Eighteen months ago Vancouver
had no existence save in name. Not a house
stood upon the spot. The terminus of the
Canadian Pacific railroad was at Port
Moody. On May 23 last the first through
train from Montreal drew into Vancouver.
The town now has a population of from
3,000 to 4,000 inhabitants, and trading in
corner lots is going on briskly. The harbor
ts magnificent, the accommodations for the
traveling public good, and in a few years
wo may confidently predict for this port an
importance equal to that of Portland, Ore.,
if not to that of San Francisco.
