The Russian Lejfa’ion May Prevent
Prom the Xew York Sun.
Washington, Sept. s.— The Chinese min
ister has not yet decided to sigu the conces
sions for bank, telegraph and telephone
privileges to the Barker syndicate. Ho is
investigating the financial standing of the
parties in the syndicate, and lie will take
ample time before deciding upon his course.
Mitkiewicz has been, according to his
friends, too indiscreet in pub
lishing his plans. This indiscretion
has caused him to come into a
great deal of prominence, and it is probable
that he will have to read a great many un
pleasant things about himself before he suc
ceeds in clasping the millions which iie has
in view. The Russian legation may have a
great deal to say, if current reports are true,
and it is possible that the representatives of
the Czar may spoil the whole scheme. It is
said that there is a grave doubt as to the
l ight of Mitkiewicz to assume the title which
he persists in adding to his name. A care
ful search of the heraldry of Russia to-day
fails to show that this name is recorded
among the nobilitv of the Czar's empire.
Mr. Paine, of Pennsylvania, who is Mr.
AY barton Barker’s immediate representa
tive, is in the city, and he is sanguine of the
outcome of the conferences which are being
held with tlie Chinese Minister. He savs
that the capital necessary to carry out the
enterprise ft forthcoming, and that the syn
dicate will have no difficulty in convincing
the Chinese Minister that they can do all
that they undertake. He does not, doubt
that the concession will be signed by the
Minister, but he does not expect that this
will be done immediately. In the mean
time the Turnbull people are asking.
“Where do we come in?” If they cannot
get a satisfactory answer to this question
they threaten to make some interesting dis
closures. It seems that the money of the
company has been heavily invested to
secure the concession, and that there is a
prospect of frigid weather for all the com
pany except Mitkiewicz
Mitkiewicz is well-known at Amherst,
Mass. He appear •.! there in the summer of
1873. At first is was not known why he
came. He was 34, jood-looking and dressed
well. He put up at the Amherst House, a
little country hotel. There was a good deal
of wonder as to who he was and what was
his business. But after awhile it became
known that he was paying attention to Miss
Caroline Lester, the 19-year-old daughter of
Ralph Lester, a banker of Rochester, and
the niece of Prof. AVilliam S. Tyler, the
Greek professor in the college. It leaked
out that the Count was engaged to marry
Miss Lester, and the match was much gos
siped about. He had made Miss Lester’s
acquaintance on an ocean steamer, it was
said. She was with her parents returning
from a tour of Europe, and he was coming
to this country to live. Miss Lester was a
novel-reading girl and very impressionable.
He told her storias of his noble pedigree,
and she believed him. He found out that
Miss Lester’s father was rich and she an
The Lesters lived at Rochester and Bing
hamton, and visited every summer at Prof.
Tyler’s home at Amherst. The Lesters and
Tylers did not like the Count, and they sent
abroad to find out if his reports about him
self were true. They learned, it is said,
that he had no standing at his home in
Poland, that his family were respectable
tradespeople, but that he was looked upon
as a black sheep. Miss Lester’s parents kept
Mitkiewicz on probation a long time while
they investigated his character. Finally
they arranged that their daughter should be
separated from her lover for a year, and
that the pair should not write to each other
in that period.
This arrangement lasted until the summer
of 1874, when the -Lesters again came to
Amherst, and Mitkiewicz reappeared upon
the scene. The Lesters forbade their daugh
ter having anything to do with the Count.
But Miss Lester did not obey her parents.
Bhe met the Count at the house of a rela
Mitkiewicz stayed at the hotel. He was
an expert billiard and card player. He con
tracted debts. Nobody knew the source of
his income, and nobody believed in his title.
In the fall of 1874 Miss Lester and Count
Mitkiewicz were married in Brace church,
Amherst, by the Rev. Henry Allen. It was
a big wedding. All the college students and
townsfolk attended. None of Miss Lester's
relatives or friends were there. But one
solid maq of Amherst sympathized with her.
He was a wealthy, white-haired man, an ex-
Legislator named Boltwood. He gave the
bride away. She was a pretty, plump bru
nette, and was beautifully dressed. The
Count had been having a convivial time at
the hotel with some friends, and was feeling
quite jolly during the marriage ceremony.
After tire wedding in the church they
went to the hotel, where they were remar
ried by a Catholic priest, the father of St.
Bridget's church. Then they took a train
for New London. There was a big crowd
at the depot to see them off. The count put
his wife in the cars, and waited himself on
the platform to shake hands with the boys.
AYhen the train was leaving he stood on the
rear platform, and winked significantly at
the crowd. Mitkiewicz and his wife were
absent some time, and then the)' came
to Northampton. There they ran short of
money, and Mrs. Mitkiewicz sought a recon
ciliation with her folks. Then the Mitkie
wiczs disappeared. It was reported that
they were in California. The next rumor
placed the pair in Italy, where Mitkiewicz
was said to be trying his skill at games of
chance* and moving from place to place,
Four years ago they returned to this
country and separated, Mrs. Mitkiewicz
going to her father’s hoirte at Rochester.

How a Woman Betrayed Her Igno
rance-Weight of a Girl’s Clothes.
From the Chicago Tribune.
New York, Sept. 3.—lt would seem to
®ny one visiting Long Branch this season
that all the overdressed ignoramuses in tho
laud were holding a congress there. Two
girls were sitting on a veranda at Elberton
with a matron tho other morning. They
attracted much attention by their magnifi
cent costumes. The woman had a hand
painted satin wrapper, and an artistic gen
tleman sauntered up fora nearer view of the
wonderful vine of westcria that climbed her
robust person from ground to throat. She was
rnurling the morning paper and romment
ln£ thereon This is what he heard:
The florist ’begs to announce that his
gladious exhibition will begin next Monday.’

“Yes, I seen him in that piece last year,”
ot the girls.

the matron: “I mean ‘Hamlet.’ ”

“Not always,” ho remarked, looking at
the gorgeous ignoramuses.
The spectacle of a dudishly-dressed gen
tleman holding with gingerly touch a lady’s
bustle and shoes attracted the attention of a
great crowd at Long Branch the other day.
It was the customary throng of bathers in
front of a hotel, augmented by many be
sides who knew that they were to be repaid
by a sight—always too funnv for anything
—of a gentleman handling a lady’s apparel.
The occasion was the settlement of a wager
that was all the talk among a rather uncon
ventional set assembled as boarders together
at a certain cottage—theatrical folks and
idlers—all proper enough, but bent on hav
ing fun. An actor among them had ended a
week of hot discussion as to which sex wore
the heavier clothes by betting with another
man in the party that men carry less
weight in garments in hot weather than
women. Itnad been decided that a certain
young woman of operatic hopes, but only
concert realizations, should submit to hav
ing her clothes weighed on the same scales
with those of the actor who made the
wager. No particular time for the solution
of the problem was agreed upon, but the
young singer assures me that, so as not to
be taken off her guard, and so as to win a
victory for her sex, she never afterward
put on anything that was not of the lightest
weight among all her belongings. She ran
a tremendous risk of pneumonia—but what
true woman would care a fig for a little
thing like that under such circumstances.
The actor may have done the same thing,
but it was thought that he took no advan
tage of his opportunities. This morning it
had been agreed upon that the test should be
made at the bath. Hence the man and the
The wise young concert singer first handed
out a white lawn dress—a mere web, ail
lace and open work, where such things are
both fashionable and possible. It and its
belt of ribbon weighed precisely one pound
on the spring scales borrowed of the cook at
the boarding house. Then came three white
skirts which weighed two pounds, and the
bustle and shoes, which weighed one pound
three ounces. These were followed by
stockings, cuffs, collar and handkerchief,
weight altogether, four ounces, and a hat
that weighed five ounces. The corset, stig
matized in books and lectures for
half a century as barbarous and
brutal, weighed, what do you sup
pose? Three ounces, and no more.
There was much figuring and arguing
over the conversion of pounds into ounces
and ounces into pounds again, but at last
this result was announced: “Total weight
of Miss Blank’s things” (note the mannish
way of speaking of what he deemed so mys
terious that even the good old word
“clothes” never occurred to him) “fifty
seven ounces, or three pounds and nine
Then came the weighing of the actor’s ap
parel, and the first thing hooked on the
scales, by the way, outweighed the lady’s
clothes tremendously, so much so that if it
had not been for a woman of sense standing
bv, who knew that the whole world would
like to know the truth about this much
vexed question, nothing more would have
been put on the scales and the bet would
have been settled. This first thing was the
actor's outer suit of trousers, vest and un
lined sack coat. These weighed five pounds
precisely. Think of it. Thirteen ounces
more in the outermost garments than in all
that the lady wore. The weights set down
to the actor’s credit (and discomfiture) were
Suit and suspenders 5 2
Shirt and undershirt X 8
Shoes and socks 1 8
Collar, cuffs (with links) and tie 4
Total for lady 37
Excess of weight in man’s clothes 81
What a sermon there is in those figures?
What an opportunity for men of all eras
and all occupations to take back all that they
ever wrote concerning woman's inhumanity
to herself in dragging around a great weight
of clothing and in loading herself with
pounds of superfluities. To be sure, the
lady said she wore the lightest garments she
had, but she might have put on her heaviest
apparel and even then would have won the
wager easily. As for the actor, he declared
he had never dressed more lightly, though
not in preparation for the test, but on ac
count of the weather. Clara Belle.
THEY FOUND A HERMIT.
He Lives in an Abandoned Mine Over
From the Heto York Times.
Just on the outskirts of the pretty village
of Arlington, on the banks of the Passaic
river, is the copper mine which at one time
furnished considerable wealth to many of
the old residents of Newark, N. J. For a
number of years it has not been worked,
and is only visited occasionally through cu
riosity. The entrance to the mine is in the
side of the bluff which overlooks the ceme
tery, and in front is a stretch of meadow
which reaches almost to Snake Hill.
Several days ago George Oliver, a con
tractor, had occasion to visit the cemetery,
when he discovered a man of odd appear
ance, who seemed to be wending his w ay to
the entrance of the mine. Mr. Oliver
started after him to see who he was. When
he was near ths stranger the man turned
around, and, giving vent to an exclamation,
disappeared in the mouth of the mine.
Oliver went home and told the story to a
few of his neighbors, who concluded to in
vestigate the matter. They equipped them
selves with lanterns and other necessaries
and started upon the search. They traversed
the mine in all directions and finally at last
got lost. After walking around for several
hours the party saw a light a long distance
away. They followed it. When fc'iey
reached the light they found that it pro
ceeded from a pot of grease in which was a
lighted rag. They were on a raised plat
form about 15 feet square, which evidently
formed a living place for someone.
While standing there they heard a hoarse
voice demanding what they were doing.
Raising their lan terns they discovered a man
who appeared to be about 40 years of age.
He was of medium size and well built, with
long hair and beard. He was clad in an old
coat, a dark shirt, baggy trousers, and very
old shoes. The hermit again asked why
they were there, and they replied that they
were exploring the mine and had lost their
wuy. He then offered to show them the
way out. When they asked his history he
at first refused to talk, but at length told
the following story, though he would not
give his name:
He said that four years ago he lived on
Thirty-seventh street, New York. Several
months before that he had married the
daughter of a boss bricklayer, and adored
his wife. He was employed iu a plumbing
establishment and earned good wages. For
some time ail went well, nut he discovered
that his wife was untrue to him. He at
once left home, with thoughts of suicide in
his mind. Wandering about he finally went
to the Arlington Cemetery. There ho
changed his mind and entering the mine,
made himself a home there. He has once
been to New York and told a friend of his
purpose, and then re.uming has remained
there ever since. He is ignorant of the
whereabouts of his wife, and says ho does
not wont to know where she is.
In the Whole Hideous Cataloguo

THE GREAT WATERBURY CLOCK
It is Nearly Done and is to Surpass
That at Strasburg.
From the Philadelphia yen's.
The Waterbury Watch Company have
almost completed their wonderful clock,
which in its mechauism is said to sui-pass
the famous clock of Strasburg. It will lie
completed by early autumn, and will then
be on ekhibitiou in several of the leading
cities of the United States. No one has
yet seen it but the builders. The clock is
18 feet high, with a base of 7 feet; the
width is 8 feet and it is 6).j feet deep.
Nearly all the choice and expensive varie
ties of wood enter into its construction,
also a numberless variety of metals. The
cabinet work throughout is a marvel of
beauty. Five long years have been con
sumed in its construction; sometimes four,
at others five men have been engaged in the
work. Time is indicated in the usual man
ner by hours, minutes and seconds; in addi
tion half-seconds, eighths, sixteenths and
thirty-seconds. The day of the year, month
and week may also be taken from the dial.
The number of wheels, parts, pinions,
springs and other parts of the mechanism
is legion, all of which contribute to
most wonderful and amusing exhibi
tions of historical events. The several
.phases of the moon are indicated.
The entire system of the planets
and solar systems are shown in perfect form
aud in all the varied revolutions. A per
fect system of astronomy may be studied
from the ingenious machinery. Many hun
dred figures represent distinguished clergy
men, lawyers, physicians, orators, poets,
musicians, sculptors, artists and actors- also
distinguished men of all nations. These
figures are said to be carved in wood from
correct likenesses, and are most complete
representations. Tbe signers of the Declara
tion of Independence assembled as repre
sented in history, the Cabinet of Lin
coln when the emancipation proclama
tion was signed, the surrender of Lee
at Apponiatox, several scenes at the Cen
tennial at Philadelphia, in 1876, and noted
scenes and historical events as represented
in the Bible have a prominent place.
Shakespearean plays are set out with char
acters true to the representations of tne
author and the modern sotting at the thea
tres, with dress and costume to correspond.
Figures aud fashions of dress, both ancient
and modern, down to Hie latest period, are
among the curiosities. A multitude of
amusing scenes will fill out the measure of
this wonderful clock. It is safe to say it
will surpass any other mechanical structure
of the kind ever produced.
When Gen. Grant Enjoyed a Hearty
Front the Chicago Tribune.
(fan. Grant was rarely known to smile,
and the occasions were few indeed when his
dignity so far broke down as to permit him
to laugh outright—though he was far from
being devoid of a relish for a good story
or joke. There was one time in his life,
however, when he indulged in a roar of
laughter that might have been heard for a
quarter of a mile. It was while be was fill
ing the Presidential chair and made his trip
to Des Moines, la., and delivered tho famous
speech on education —the first time it was
discovered that he really could make a good
speech. He passed through the little town
of Bloomfield,twelve miles from the Missouri
line, at 9 o’clock at night. A crowd had
assembled, conspicuous among them being
the village toper, who always filled up on
great occasions, and bad therefore risen to
the emergency, and was in a condition on
the arrival of the Presidential party to
hobnob with a King. The train halted at
the station for several minutes, and in re
sponse to cheers President Grant appeared
on the platform aud lifted his hat in stiff,
schoolboy fashion The old toper looked at
him with blinking eyes, and then deliber
ately thrust his face close to the sphinx-like
countenance before him. There was a dead
silence, the audacity ot tbe act causing the
townspeople to stare in dumb amazement,
while the few persons surrounded Grant
were equally astounded. For a moment
the drunken man swayed and started, and
| then said: •
“Ish zis Presh’dunt Grant?”
The features of the hero of Appomat
tox relaxed a little as he nodded affirma
“Come, now, hones’, pardner,” persisted
the toper. “Shay, ol'roan, y’ ain’t tryin’ to
fool a feller, are you?”
The scene was cut shortly by the town
Marshal reaching up and yanking the
intruder to the ground • but it had such an
inexpressibly funny side that the “silent
