dent of the Life Saving Servire, shows that
the establishment embraced at the close of
the last fiscal year 218 stations, os follows:
One hundred and sixty-six on the Atlantic,
forty-four on the lakes, seven on the Pacific
and one at tlie falls of the Ohio, at Louis
ville, Ky. The number of disasters to docu
mented vessels reported within the field of
station operations during the year was 332.
ONLY 55 LIVES LOST.
On board these vessels were (1.327 persons,
of whom 6,272 were saved and 55 lost. The
number of shipwrecked persons who receiv
ed succor at the stations was 787. to whom
1,894 days relief in the aggregate was af

MOKE WORK THAN EVER.
In rendering assistance in saving vessels
and cargoes more work was accomplished
than in any previous year except the one
immediately preceding, 393 vessels having
iieen floated off when stranded, repaired
when damaged, piloted out of dan
gerous places, and similarly assisted
by the stations’ crews. There were
besides 210 instances when vessels running
into danger of stranding were w arned by
the signals of the patrol, mast of them thus
being probably saved from partial or total
destruction. The total number of lives lost
during the sixteen years of the existence of
the life saving system is only 347, out of
over 35,000 involved.
COTTON SEED OIL.
Wonderful Development of the Indus
try in a Decade.
Washington, Nov. 2.5. All the wit
nesses examined before the Interstate Com
mission to-day in the Standard Oil cases
had been sworn and examined before, and
their evidence was, in great part, in ex
planation or elaboration of that already
brought out. Mr. Murray, General Freight
Agent of the Iron Mountain and Missouri
Pacific lines, gave, incidentally, some inter
esting facts about cotton and oil.
ALL IN TEN YEARS.
Ten years ago, he said, the only demand
for this product was from abroad, whence
it came back to us as olive oil. The inaugu
ration of the tank car system of transport
ing petroleum to the South afforded a cheap
means of getting cotton seed oil to the North
i'i tank cars, which would otherwise return
empty, and the result has been an enormous
development of crude oil production in all
parts of the cotton growing regions.
TANKS IN BIG DEMAND.
Other witnesses had testified generally
that fully IK) per cent, of the tank cars sent
South came back filled with either cotton
seed oil or turpentine. "Mr. Murray said
ttat they now sometimes hove even to send
empty tanks South to bring back the cotton
seed oil. He said that notwithstanding the
enormously rapid growth of the crude oil
production, only a fraction of the available
material is as yet consumed, the larger part
of it still going to waste.
FOSTERING THE INDUSTRY.
To foster this new industry the railroads
transport the oil.which is worth four or five
times as much ]>er gallon as petroleum, at
considerable loss rates than are given on
the latter. They are better enabled to do
this as the manufacture of cotton seed oil
I rings incidentally other patronage to the
railroads, such as cotton soed to the manu
factory ami of cotton seed cake to the sea
board for shipment abroad.
The evidence in the Standard Oil cases is
now all in. Further proceedings are posi
tioned till Jan. 16, when arguments will be
COMMERCE BY MAIL.
Mexico to Make New Regulations Con
Washington, Nov. 38.—Hon. Nicholas
M. Bell, Superintendent of Foreign Mails,
said to-day that the new postal convention
concluded with Mexico last April, was
working admirably. Large numbers' of
small packages are exchanged between the
two countries, and traffic of this sort is con
stantly increasing. The regulations of the
Mexican Customs Service, imposing a fine
of double the duty upon good' imported
without accompanying certified invoices,
has checked this stream of trade. We do
not require certified invoices with dutiable
l>acknges imported by mail, although we
nave both ml valorem and specific duties.
When the Mexican customs officials, under
nn old fashioned law, began to levy fines on
the non invoiced packages imported by mail
American merchants complained to our
Post Office Department Thereupon Mr.
Bell asked tho Mexican government to
change its customs regulat ions so as to make
them conform to ours, which could be the
more readily done as all the Mexican duties
are specific. To-day .nr. Bell received a
letter from Senor Romero, the Mexican
Minister here, stating that the Mexican
government would at once make
new regulations conformable to
the wishes expressed by the
United ,States government,. There will,
therefore, hereafter be no obstruction to
the commerce by mail between the two
countries. Mr. Bell has concluded like con
ventions with the authorities of Jamaica
and the Barbadoes, and is in negotiation to
the same end with all the Central and
South American States.

CAPTURED BY THE IRISH.
A Remarkable Scene at a Meeting in
s avor of Arbitration.
Camden, N. J., Nov. 28.—A remarkable
scene occurred to-night at a meeting held in
Armory Hall, which was gotten up in the
interest of four members of the British
Parliament, who are in this country for the
purpose of working up a feeling in behalf
of the idea of entering into a treat}" with
England by which ail disputes between that
nation and the United States shall
be settled by arbitration. The
meeting was presided over by
Hon. 7 homas H. Dudley, and the speakers
were Messrs. W. R. Creamer and H. W.
Stewart, both members of tho House of
Commons. Before the meetiug had pro
ceeded far it was very apparent that two
thirds present were Irish sympathizers, and
when the usual resolutions were read the
following was offered by Thomas P. Curley,
and adopted along with tho others;
Resolved. That we earnestly urge that the
principles of arbitration be adopted by England
in the settlement of the difficulties between
that country and down-trodden Ireland, be
lieving as we do that the method will result in a
speedy correction of the shameful abuses that
are being heaped upon the defenseless Irish
tenants under cover of an iniquitious coercion
A STRIKE AT EL PASO.
The Hands in the Smelting Works
Want Higher Pay.
El Paso, Tex, Nov. 28. —Twenty Ameri
cans and eight Mexicans, composing the
day shift at the El Paso Smelting Works,
went out on a strike at noon to-day, giving
the company one hour to accede to their
demands. Some of the Mexicans were
noisy and demonstrative but quiet
was restored by the arrival
of four officers from El Paso.
Most of the men then went back
to work. Two Mexicans were placed in
jail for threats against those who went
back to work. Some of the American
strikers said tills afternoon that they would
arm and prevent the works from starting
unless their demands for higher
pay were granted. The works are located
just across the river from Jlexieo
affording easy retreat in case of mischief,
but the authorities will deal vigorously
with them, if violence is attempted.

A HOTEL BOILER BURSTS.
ONE WOMAN KILLED OUTRIGHT
AND MANY INJURED.
Fifteen or Twenty Feet of the Rear
Wall Blown Out to a Height of Four
Stories - Freezing of a Pipe Supposed
to Have Caused the Digester.
Milwaukee, Nov. 28.—A shocking acci
dent occurred at the Kirby House this
morning. The boiler used for heating water
exploded, entirely wrecking the rear end of
the building, burying a number of people
beneath tho ruins, fatally wounding several
and, killing ouo outright. The
explosion occurred at 8:30 o’clock. The
boiler which explodod was a hot water
boiler behind the kitchen range. The ex
plosion blew out a portion of the rear wall
of the building 30 feet in width and extend
ing from the ground to the floor of the
fourth story. One end of the dining-room
was wrecked, all the tables being knocked
over and the dishes spilled. Most of the
guests had finished breakfast . Among those
who remained a panic reigned, but as far as
known none of the guests were hurt. The
kitchen of the hotel was completely wrecked.
GIRLS CAUGHT IN THE CRASH.
There were about a dozen girls in the
room at the time and all were buried be
neath a mass of brick and mortar. The fire
department was on the scene within a min
ute after the explosion. The following girls
were taken out from the ruins badly injured:
Anna Kennedy, assistant cook: Carrioe
Olsen, dining-room girl; Julia Field Meyer,
dining-room girl; Nora Dougherty, dining
room girl; Mary Arbuckle, pastry cook.
All were so badly injured, mostly by
bruises, that Dr. MarKs said he could not
tell whether they would live or not.
Minnie Thompson, a girl employed in the
Sentinel bindery across the alley, was badly
cut about the head by flying glass that was
blown in by the explosion.
THE PROPRIETOR INJURED.
Mr. Beckwith, one of the proprietors of
the hotel, who was in the rear part of the
building, near where the explosion took
place, was hit in the head by a flying mis
sile, which knocked him down. He is able
to be about.
The alley back of the hotel was piled to a
depth of 4 or 5 feet with debris from the
wrecked building. The north wall of the
dining-room was blown in for a distance of
15 or 20 feet. The firemen got water upon
the ruins in time to extinguish the flames
which started, before they had gained much
The accident was probably caused by the
freezing of the feed pipe supplying the

POPE LEO’S TEMPORAL POWER.
The Government Will Not Prosecute
Those Advocating It.
Rome, Nov. 28.—1n the Chamber of Dep

chi interpellated the government regard
ing the petitions demanding the restoration
of the temporal power of the Pope. Minis
ter Zanarddelli replied that the crown law

did not incriminate the Signors. It was
otherwise, perhaps, with regard to
the letter of the Bishops, who clearly de
manded that the temporal power of the
Pope be restored. He considered it unwise,
however, to take action against them,
which they desired. No greater service
could be rendered them than to bring them
into prominence through a public trial. By
ignoring them the government showed the
great liberty enjoyed by its enemies, and

Editorial—Men of Host's Own Ilk
Testify in His Behalf.
Chicago, Nov. 28.—The following ex
tracts from an article in the Sunday issue
of the Afbeilrr Zeitung arc interesting at
the present juncture, ns there has been some
question if a celebration such as the Central
Labor Union and a number of singing and
turning societies intend to have Dec. 10
would lead to any trouble. Referring to
the attempts to preveut any speaking at
such meeting the paper says: “The com
mittee that has rented Battery D. Hall for
a grand celebration Dec. 10 is compelled to
fight this insidious mob which in full con
sclousness of its guilt dare not approach its
honest opponents openly, but onlv tries to
obstruct their way by trickery. It. is said
that such things can happen, but. it
is elevating that Friday evening
the delegates of nine turning societies
declared as one man: ‘lt is our duty as
Turners to protect the freedom of speech as
thirty years ago our brothers of the Cincin
nati Tumgemude considered it their sacred
duty to protect the noble Wendell Phillips
with their bodies against a mob that had a
majority, but was governed by stupidity
and villainy. As they were ready to give
up blood and life for the constitution and
the liberty of speech guaranteed by it. they
will also stand fast and true when John
Glay steps on the platform and speaks to
the working people of the past, present and
future.’ Those 1 were true Turners that
spoke iu that strain, and we entertain a Arm
hope that these Turners also, who are in a
minority in the so-called conservative
societies, will be sound on this
question, and that they will also know
whero their place is if anybody, whoever it
may be, should make a frivolous treasonable
attempt, an attempt deserving of death, to
outrage the rights of the people. But it
will not come to this.”
The article goes on to say that the Citi
zens’ Association will not let it come to this
for lack of courage, and that that organiza
tion would not so soon after Nov. 11 “pro
voke a riot, the termination of which would
lie at least doubtful.’’
The Anarchists of this city have prepared
a rabid cmcnlar for distribution among the
w-rkingmen here. It is headed with the
single word “Eight.’’ The circular de
nounces the Anarchists’ trial and execution
and dec in res that nothing but force
w’ill win. It urges preparation
for “revolution.” “Whoever joins us,” says
the circular, “must take all the conse
quences upon himself, and must be ready to
sacrifice everything for the cause, even
should it be his life.”
Witnesses Deny That He Ueed the Vio
lent Language Charged.
New Tore, Nov. 28. —The trial of Jo
hann Most, the Anarchist, was resumed to
day. The court room was thronged, and
many women were present, but there was a
noticeable dimunition in the glare of red
ribbons and flowem displayed. Frederick
liarting, the first witness, testified that he
went into a saloon, in the rear of which
Most was making his speech, and attracted
by curiosity, went into the meeting held
there. He arid Most (lid not use the violent
language obarged against him. He had
never sedß' Most before, and was not an
Anarchist, but might yet become one.
Herman Strelitz, a reporter, formerly of
the Leader and now on the Volks Zeitung,
testified that he hoard Most’s speech, and
that he began it with “Fellow Citizens,” not
“Brother Anarchists,” as was alleged. He
said Most threatened no immediate revenge,
but accused State's Attorney Grinnell and
Judge Gary of the murder of the Chicago
Anarchists. He also accused Mr. Powderly
and Henry George of their murder for turn
ing the Knights of Labor from the Anarch
ists. The witness said Most spoke in a sor
rowful tone. Every word came from his
heart and went to the heart. The witness
said he was a Socialist, and that he did not
believe God liothered about such a trilling
thing as perjury.
Gustave Stephan and Siegfried Rosenz
weig testified that they’ heard Most’s speech
and that it did not contain the incendiary
language alleged. The latter said he did
not whether he is an Anarchist or not, and did
not know exactly know wbat anarchy was,
although he has been studying the subject
for eight years. He testified that Dreyfus,
the reporter who testified against Most, left
the meeting a quarter of an hour before it
ended. Judge Cowing said he would hold a

Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 28.—At an early
hour this morning a written notice wat
served on Ordinary Calhoun and the Anti
Prohibition Committee that Saturday 1 !
election would be contested on the ground
of illegal votes. The notice was signed bj
Green T. Dodd and John A. Barry, au<i

The development was a surprise to hott
sides. At 10 o’clock the Prohibition Ex

pronounced against it. Efforts were made
during the day to have the notice with*

is on the Executive Committee, and told
them if they did not indorse the contest as
a committee that he would carry it on at
his own expense. The Prohibitionists will
meet, again to-morrow morning to consider
the mat ter, and it is thought the contest
will lie abandoned. It is reported that Mr.

from declaring it to-day, awaiting the dis
position of the notice of contest. If further
action is not taken by the representative ol

delay. The action of Messrs. Dodd and
Barry is pretty generally condemned, as no

Negroes and White Boys In a Lively
Kow at Macon.
Macon, Ga., Nov. 28. —Last night be
tween 9 and 10 o’clock a probably fatal
shooting .‘.crape occurred on Second street,
just across the city boundary, opposite the
reservoir. A negro named Grant and
several others were walking along the street
between the railroad bridge and Tracy’s,
when they met several little white boys, and
a rock battle ensued between the two par
ties. Finally the negroes ran the white
boys off. Shortly afterward the negroes
met John Tracy, aged about 18, a son of
Daniel Tracy, and one of the negroes cursed
and charged him with throwing rocks
at them. The negroes immediately
began to throw rocks at Tracy,
and he was hit several times.
Tracy told his assailants to stop, and that
he had not throw n a rock at them. The
negroes continued to pelt him until forbear
ance ceased to be a virtue, and Tracy pulled
out a Smith & Wesson 38-calibre pistol and
commenced firing at the crowd. He shot
four times. Grant was shot in the left arm
and the ball passed into his side, making an
ugly wound, which bled profusely. Grant
fell to the ground, and his companions then
fled. Tracy thinks that two others of the
negroes were also hit by his bullets, but of
this ho is not positive. The negroes fired
three times at Tracy, but he escaped injury.
Grant is thought to be fatally injured. ,

Augusta, Ga.. Nov. 28.—Some days ago
two countrymen came to town, and after
loitering about the streets for some time,
entered a gambling house. They were
fleeced in short order, and being refused
when they demanded their money back,
they sought a policeman and made com
plaint. A warrant was sworn out against
Barrett, a gambler, and the case came up
to-day. Barrett pleaded guilty, and
immediately had one of the country
men arrested in open court on
a charge of gambling. This created a sen
sation, and tue countryman’s jaws fell in
consternation. It had'not occuiTed to him
that he had been gambling as well as Bar
rett. The latter was sentenced to pay a fine
of #3OO or to serve the city for eight months
on the chain-gang. The mystified country
man in default of bail was committed for

Arnold severely cutting his opponent in the
