FOR MRS. MITKIEWICZ.
A BOOM FULL OF COSTLY PRES
ENTS BROUGHT BY THE
“One Pair Diamond Earrlngs-One Hun
dred Silk Dresses -Countless Pieces
of Bric-a-Brac Fans of Exquisite
Workmanship, and Gold Ornaments
From the New York Sun.
Washington, Sept. B.—lf Secretary
Manning should enter the drawing-room of
the house which he lately occupied to-night
he certainly would not recognize the room.
Instead of an ordinary American parlor, it
has all the appearance of a Chinese bazar.
It seems that the Chinese officials, besides
falling in love with Count Mitkiewicz,
have taken a violent fancy to his
wife. The “heathen” in China have never
seen the lady, but this made no difference.
They were determined to show their
esteem in a substantial manner. The
mandarins who come from tho Flowery
Kingdom brought presents such as King
Solomon might have brought to the Queen
of Sheba. There are in the assortment a
magnificent pair of diamond earrings, 100
beautiful silk dresses of as many different
designs, countless pieces of Chinese bric-a
brac. thirty or forty fans of the most ex
quisite w'orkmanship, besides a great
array of gold and ivory ornaments and
idols, which only a Chinese artisan can pro
duce. Mrs. Mitkiewicz gave a reception to
the members of the Chinese Legation this
afternoon, at which she was assisted by a
party of lady friends. The presents were
brought out and admired by all the ladies,
and no doubt some of them forgot that the
tenth commandment applies to the pro
ducts of China as well as to the goods of
any other nation. Tea was served in Chi
nese cups, brewed from leaves sent directly
by the Viceroy to Mrs. Mitkiewicz, and
those who were permitted to sip say that
there never was such tea drawn at an
American reception before.
Mitkiewicz is not to have absolutely plain
sailing in his ventures. Mr. Turnbull, the
inventor of the telephone which gave the
Count the leverage of the Chinese Minister,
was in the city to-day. He brought with
him an agreement signed by Mitkiewicz,
which shows that he has been frozen out by
that enterprising gentleman. Mr. Turnbull
called at the legation and was cordially re
ceived by the attache who happened to be
in at the time. Mr. Turnbull explained his
mission, and asked what could be done
about it. The attache read the agreement,
and said that it certainly seemed
that whatever benefits are to be
derived from the concessions should
be shared by the inventor
of the telephone. Then in a very neat diplo
matic manner be remarked that the ar
rangement had all been made in China, and
that the Minister hero had nothing to do
with the case further than to see that the
terms were complied with by the gentlemen
to whom Hie grant has lieen given. He
could see nio way in which the legation
could benefit Mr. Turnbull, and he had no
Alggestions to offer which might bo of ser
vice. Mr. Turnbull retumod to Baltimore,
but, as he is a man of means, and a great
deal of pugnacity, it is not likely that he
will consent to see the reward of his genius
reaped by another without exhausting every
means available for securing his rights.
Philadelphia, Sept. B.—Mr. Wharton
Barker returned to-day from Washington,
whither he hail gone in the interests of the
Chinese-Amerioan $50,000,000 telephone
and banking syndicate. Mr. Stern, the
financial representative of the syndicate,
met him at his office in the afternoon, where
they were closeted for several hours. The
A merican , Mr. Barker’s paper, in its next
Issue will say:
“Count de Mitkiewicz, during his recent
visit to Tientsin, obtained for the Chinese-
American Telephone Company the exclusive
right to erect telephones, operate telephone
tines, and manufacture telephonic appara
tus and appliances, in all the treaty ports
now open or to be hereafter ojamed, for a
period of fifty years. In addition to this,
he returns to this country with the basis of
a charter for a Chinese-American bank,
to be under joint American and Chi
nese control, and the capital of which
Is to be contributed jointly dv Americans
and Chinese. Th* functions of this institu
tion. in addition to the transacting of a gen
eral banking business, will include the plac
ing of all government loans for such public
purjioses as tho construction of railways,the
working of mines, and the contracting for
supplies needed for such undertakings. It
is also to have authority to issue bank bills,
and to provide a uniform currency in gold
and silver; such bank bilks and coin to be a
legal tender for their face value throughout
“As an evidence of the importance at
taching to this enterprise, it is only neces
sary to mention that Viceroy Li Hung
Chang. Premier of the Chinese empire, has
consented to accept the supervision of the
bank, and that he has sent as his envoy to
this country so eminent a diplomat as Ma Kie
Chung, who, in conjunction with the Min
ister of the Chinese imperial government at
Washington, is to confer with Mr. Wharton
Barker as to the minor details in the plan of
the intended bank. It is probable that this
conference, being one of importance and
deliberately conducted, will occupy some
NOTES FOR WOMEN.
What Some of the Moat Notable of
them are Doing.
New York, Sept. 10. —It would make a
long list simply to enumerate the names of
women who sit in the editorial chairs of
magazines. Mrs. Mary Mapes Dodge went
from a successful literary career to the
office of St. Nicholas. Ella Farman Pratt
takes an active part in making up Wide
Awake. Of the fashiou jieriodicals, there
is no better edited publication of any kind
in the country than liairper's Bazar, of
which Miss Mary L. Booth, and in her
absence Mrs. S S. Conant, has full control.
Jennie June has a half ownership in Godcy's
Lady's Book mid is supreme in the editoriul
room. Mme. Demorest has but just
retired from the business control of the
magazine bearing her name. The widow
of Peterson, the Philadelphia publisher, has
taken Peterson's Magazine into her own
hands, both editorially and financially.
The Ladies' World )tays the woman
at its helm $5,000 a year, and
and the new dress reform magazine Press,
if Mrs. Jenness Miller will allow it to be
classed with fashion publications, is in part
owned and wholiy managed hy its editor,
who is putting a good deal of fresh talent
into its early issues. Mrs. Laura Hollo
way edits the Home Library Magazine and
the Woman's Argosy, new Chicago
ventures, u liicji promise large success. Mrs.
Josephine Redding edits two decorative art
magazines very ably, and the housekeeping
magazines are in swarms. Mis. Frank
Leslie has made a fortune in four years.
Of a more serious class of publications,
Mrs. Martini J. Lunili has increased the
circulation and marie the reputation of the
Magazine of American History, and Miss
Jeannette Gilder commands unlimited re
spect for her work on the Critic. Philan
thropic publications of all sorts are in
feminine hands. Edward Everett Hale's

TIIE ADDRESS OF PROF. ELLIOT CODES,
at the annual commencement of the
National Medical College, Washington,
just published in pamphlet form, makes
mteresting reading. The Medical Depart
ment of Columbian University graduated
its first women students at the end of the
last school year. Prof. Coues’ address was
inspired hy this fact, and its advocacy of
the equal claims of women to all the fruits
of modern civilization wap so pronounced
that the faculty, unwilling to print it,
resolved to omit the customary publication
of the annual addresses. Prof. Coues at
oneo resigned his position and has placed his
words on record before the public. Char
acteristic sentences are bis advice to
women • “Think, be and do for yourselves
and take the consequences. A woman says
to herself, ‘Your medical college does not
suit me, therefore 1 will make it over.’
And the thing is done. She says to society,
‘I helped to make you what you are. I will
help to make you over again if you do not
suit me.’ No one can foretell the result or
presume to limit the power of this splendid
spirit of. individual right to in
dividual opinion, to individual char

next? If we would be wise let us prophesy
after the event. Whatever the case may

New York Buddhist" are growing in
numbers, and include in their ranks men
and women who are nevei named with or
suspected of belonging to the mystics. New
York is not like Boston, it never loses its
head sufficiently to neglect precautions
against being laughed at by the sceptical,
and the circles of believers are shy of get
ting before the public. Nevertheless there
is money subscribed for a Buddhist temple
and the building itself may materialize
before long. New York Buddhists accept
the doctrines of reincarnation and Nirvana,
and I could mention several who keep
themselves in constant communication
with the High Priest of Ceylon. There are
converts among them well known as
writers who carry on something of a
propaganda through newspapers and
magazines, always using a nomde plume, or
suppressing the signature, lest the knowledge
of their connection with the mystics hurt
their reputation for common sense and
literary sanity in other lines. Mrs. Laura
Holloway’s Buddhistic Cookbook indicated
her interest in the Oriental religions some
years ago, and the topic is a frequent,
subject of discussion at the Sunday evening
conversazione at her Brooklyn home. Mrs.
Holloway is a vegetarian and has not used
meat for years.
Matches betwoen teams of lady cricketers
are not common in this country, but a
pretty one was played at Orange, the sum
mer home of fair athletes, this week. The
elevens were made up of young girls who
have varied their tennis with cricket all
summer, and who showed themselves
experienced and plucky as well as pretty
players. The teams were made up of New
Yorkers and Philadelphians respectively,
am&New York beat the Quaker City by an
inning and three runs. The players were
all society buds or blossoms, and if they
dance as energetically as they bowled will
tire out some delicate young men this
winter. Both elevens did some determined
wicket keeping. The winning side fielded
remarkably well, and the losers owed their
defoat to weak batting. They did not mob
the umpires, however, who were two
defenseless men. Cricket costumes are
picturesque. One eleven wore striped caps,
English scarlet silk blouse shirts and striped
scarlet and white skirts- the other eleven
wore yellow and white shirts, white skirts
and caps thrust through with sprays of
goldenrod. The game may yet become
popular with American girls, because
English girls play it, if for no other reason

An odd fancy of the autumn is to wear
gold and silver sleeve clusjis set with a big
jewel. They are like those used in the days
of low-necked and short-sleeved afternoon
gowns and very decorative, but serve no
other toilet purpose.
Low-crowned bonnets have appeared, but
it will take two years, at least, to make
them general. E. P. H.
DOWNED BY THE CONVICTS.
More About the Escape on the Augusta
From the Augusta (Go.) Chronicle.
Report* of a wholesale escape from the
Augusta and Chattanooga railroad convict
camp have been flying thick and fast, but
no verified report of the stampede could bo
obtained. In the Chronicle of yesterday
was printed the minor that the guard went
to sleep and his gun was taken from him by
one of the convicts, the prisoners walking
away at will. It now seems that this was
erroneous. From the official report of the
escape sent to Col. John R. Towers, princi
pal keeper of tho peuitntiary, the true facts
in the case are gleaned.
A squad of ten prisoners were being car
ried from dinner, on chain, and just as they
wore loosed from the chains to go to work,
one of them, a desperate fellow, named
Kirk, grabbed the guard, threw him down
and took his gun from him. The convict
t hen ordered the guard to stand buck, and
the latter was powerless. Kirk and three
other convicts then took their leave, the
gun being canned off by them. There was
no other guard about, .and the prisoners
had no difficulty in making their escape.
Only four of the gang left. The names of
Kirk’s three companions could not lie ascer
The other six convicts watched the mutiny
and escape quietly enough, but took no hand
in the procedure. Thev, too, could have
taken their departure, but preferred to re
main, although one of them was a fifteen
year mail. Of those who escaiied, two were
from Chatham county, and One from this
(Richmond) county. Persons living in the
neighborhood of the camp claim to have
seen one of the escapes loitering in the
woods, but the chances are that the whole
four have made hasty tracks for distant

The Discrimination of Which She Com
plains—Why Her Young Men Leave
Charleston, Sept. 10.—It was discov
ered a day or two ago that Charleston was
being discriminated ugainst in freight rates
on the Greenville railroad. In plain lan
guage, it is charged that South Carolina
cotton could bo carried from points on the
Greenville railroad, and on (he
Charlotte road to Norfolk, and on
the Wilmington, Columbia and Augusta
railroad to Wilmington, N. C., at cheaper
rates than it could be brought to' Charles
ton. It is probable that there never has
been a year since 1870 in which Charleston
lias not been discriminated against. But
these recent cases have excited the indigna
tion of the commercial community, and
Capt. Geo. H. Waller, an old merchant and
cotton factor, has been appointed a special
agent to travel on the roads named, get up
the evidence, and bring the matter before
the Railroad Commission.
THE STEAMSHIP MUDDLE.
While the two Exchanges (Produce and
Cotton) were discussing the railroad discrim
ination matter another explosion occurred.
The cotton men had found out that the
Clyde line of steamers was making Charles
ton a kind of flag station. The Clyde line
runs from New York to Jacksonville, Fla.,
Charleston being a kind of way station.
Now that cotton is coining in freely the
cotton shippers found that they could only
get such freight room .as was not taken in
Jacksonville. 8o a meeting of the Exchange
was called and a committee appointed to lay
a complaint before the Clydes. In answer
the Clydes directed their agent to raise tho
rate on cotton from Charleston about 33
cents per bal >. It is needless to say that
this made the cotton men mad. They at
once appointed an agent to go to New York
and offer inducements for the establishment
of anew line of steamers.
THE MOST SEVERE BLOW.
On top of these two sensations comes the
announcement that the Northeastern rail
road has been leased to the Wilmington and
Weldon railroad. There is a disposition on
the part of the Coast Line people to belittle
this transaction, but there can be no doubt
but that it is the most staggering blow that
has been dealt to this city in years. The
Northeastern railroad runs through the gar
den spot of South Carolina, the rich Pee Dee
section. Disguise it as they inav, the lease
means the loss to Charleston of over 100,000
bales of cotton a year.
Is this not enough to stagger a city that
has beetf effected as the old city has been?
For pure unadulterated bad luck, Charles
ton is as prominent as she is for standing up
under repeated misfortunes. Almost the
entire city debt of $1,050,001 was incurred
in bonds issued for the building of railroads
in the State, which were expected to ben
efit Charleston, and all these railroads are
now run antagonistic to Charleston’s inter
ests. One by one the roads leading
from the city to the interior, have
passed out of tho control of the
city. Opportunities were offered the
monied men of the city, to obtain the con
trol of these roads, but they declined. So
that now the city is actually struggling for
A gixxi many people here are disposed to
lay the blame for this state of affairs where
it belongs—on the heads of the people of
Charleston themselves—and a review of
the facts will probably bear them out.
It is an indisputable fact that there is no
unanimity of opinion here on matters
affecting the interests of the city. A writer
in the News and Courier to-day asserts
positively that the reason Wilmington took
so many bales of cotton from Charleston
last year, and is likely to take more this
year, is because the Wilmington cotton
buyers send agents to the interior towns in
the State and the Charleston cotton buyers
Another writer suggests that if Charles
ton wants another steamship line to New
York, and thinks it will pay. the best way
to get the line is to subscribe half the capi
tal stock and then send an agent to New
York. And yet it is doubtful if $50,000
could be raised here for the purpose.
Against this it may be mentioned that at
least $1,000,000 of Charleston capital has
been invested during the last year in Ala
Another appalling fact that stares us in
the face is that a very large proportion of
the young men of the city are emigrating.
Within the past twelve months over 100 of
the brightest and best young men of Charles
ton have left the city and settled elsewhere,
and, strange to say, nearly all of them are
prospering. If the emigration continues
much longer there will be very few of the
rising generation left here.
Why do they go? I asked the question of
a young man who lately left here for Ala
bama. If I should mention his name it
would lie recognized by nine-tenths of the
people of Savannah as that of a man who
has figured prominently in almost every
public event in Charleston for tho past
twelve or thirteen years. “I am going,” he
said, “because Charleston is no place fora
young man to thrive. We have no show
here.” Then he recited to me a dozen in
stances where bright, active, intelligent
youths had vainly striven to make a living
in their native city, and who, after giving
up, had gone abroad and prospered. His
own experience is sufficient. He had been
connected in a fiduciary character (and on
starvation wages) with a largo moneyed
concern. For twelve years, he said, he hail
been dejiositing in one bank here moneys
aggregating $75,000 a year. Recently tin
wanted to borrow a few hundred dojlars,
and naturally Went to the bank that he had
been dealing with for so many years. He
offered a good indorser. He was himself
known as a man of strict integrity, sober,
diligent and reliable. He was refused the
loan. And yet that same bank has lost
more money by the dishonesty of unknown
speculators than all the other banks corn
Again said my friend: In almost every
city in the United States a young man who
is growing up and raising a family on mod
erate wages can secure a home for himself
on terms that are within his means. He
can’t do it in Charleston. The rich men of
this city think onlv of themselves. Some
times they build houses, frequently they
build negro tenements in disreputable local
ities and hand them over to agents to col
lect weekly rents. There are one hundred
men in Charleston who could build blocks
of decent houses and sell them to worthy
and struggling young men on the instal
ment plan, ana make money in the Itargain.
Rich men in other cities do this, but not
those in Charleston. There is a gentlemau
hero whose income is said to lie s<loo a day.
1 don’t know this, but I can take you to a
dozen houses belonging to him that are not
rented, first, because ho wont keep them in
dereut repuir, and second, because lie wants
fabulous rents for them. Is it any wonder
that the young men of Charleston are emi
This is the picture that Charleston pre
sents to-day. It is true that the city has
rallied wonderfully since the earthquake,
and, doubtless, she will survive these last
blows. A city that has survived 200 years
of misfortune and disaster can hardly lie
squelched bv a railroad or steamship corpo
ration, but the outlook at present is not x
-octly charming. The picture does not look
very rosy at present.

ENDS IN A TIE.
New Orleans Throws Away a Game
After Winning it Three Times.
New Orleans, Sept. 11.—To-day's game
was exasperating to the 4.000 people pres
ent. The locals had it won three times, and
deliberately threw it away each time. They
out batted and outran the Birminghams,
and played nicely, as a rule, but made er
rors at critical points, which allowed
the visitors to keep up. In the
last two innings New Orleans scored three
runs by hard slugging, Powell and Canqiau
getting in doubles, and Geiss a home run
when Campau was on base. With a lead
of two runs, New Orleans felt reasonably
sure of victory, but a series of errors again
let the game slip. Burke got first on a
missed fourth strike, but was run
down on Masran's hit to third.
Kluxman let Hayes’ hit go and Masran
scored. Hayes got in on a passed ball, with
two men out. Esterquest nit to second and
Geiss threw nicely to first, and it looked as
if the game was over, but Cartwright
dropped the ball and Hayes crossed the
plate. Snyder bit safe, helping Esterquest
to third, and Birmingham had a chance
to score a victory. New Orleans tried the
Memphis style of calling the game, but tbe
crowd shouted for fair play, and the game
went on. Snyder tried to steal second and
Wells threw to Geiss, who returned it nice
ly and Esterquest died at tbe plate. Tho
game was then called. The score by innings

A DOMESTICATED QUEEN
Seaside Life of the Woman Who Rules
Spain for Her Baby Son.
From a St. Sebastian latter.
If Queen Christina of Spain were pretty,
she would carry all before her; unfor
tunately, she has the sort of complexion
which English doctors term roseate—a com
plexion which would ruin the effect
of the most perfectly-modeled
features. It’s a pity that her hands and
feet are so long. Don’t mind my saying so,
but in their arms and the extremities of
both sets of limbs the House of Austria
shows more than “traces” of descent from
Darwin’s common simian ancestors. I
dare say that it w’ould be a vast relief to
the Queen-Regent if she could wear gloves
when she takes her public sea-bnth. For
tunately for her, there are pockets in her
tunic, into which she sticks her fingers, and
so hides their extreme length and sinewy
anatomy. She carries a sun shade that
nearly hides her face. She gives it to tho
bather in the water, and he slings it by the
strings on his arm.
The marine attire consists of lint shoes,
stockings, pantalettes of the zouave kind,
with deep frills hiding the ankles, and a
short tunic. For the promenades after the
bath—and her majesty is frequently to lie
met like an ordinary mortal walking along
with a baby infanta clinging to each hand
—she wears usually a black cashmere skirt,
with horizontal bands of crape and a casaqtie
trimmed with crape. Her veil is very long.
•She has a figure that lends itself well to
drapery, although the shoulders are rather
high. W e hear that she smokos cigarettes,
having learned to do so as a girl at Vienna.
Her cousin, the Archduchess Matilda, who
was to have been Queen of Italy, was a
confirmed smoker, and lost her life
through thrusting the cigar behind
her back, on seeing an uncle on
tho terrace under a window at which she
was smoking. She forgot thqt she had on a
muslin lire*, which, coming in contact with
it, at once caught fire and blazed up. This
will explain why Queen Christina has an
objection to ministers smoking in her pres
ence at Aranjucz.
The little King is a jollv sort of baby.
He is the image of Queen Isabella, and en
joys being noticed and shown to tho crowd,
to which he blows kisses with a pair of little
fat hands. He goes through this form of
salutation with all his heart, and his eyes
jump out of his head with glee.
